House cleaner left easy off oven cleaner on our non-self-cleaning oven and it was not noticed for weeks. The enamel appears to have been "eaten" off. What can I do? Is the oven dangerous to use? It is a GE oven.

The best thing to do is with a cold oven, go ahead and use the Easy-Off non fume again and wait 2 hours. This should remove the original grease as well as the left over Easy Off from the 1st application.
If you don't have the Self-clean feature on your range, here's a tip for a simple way to clean without having to purchase expensive, offensive spray oven cleaners. Using a glass cup, place 1/4 cup of household ammonia in the oven. Let it sit overnight. The next day the ammonia fumes will have loosened the soil<br />
and you should be able to wipe the bottom of the oven with a paper towel and most of the soil will come right out!<br />
PLEASE BE AWARE: If you have a gas oven with a constantly burning pilot, the ammonia will evaporate and be ineffective.
That model is self cleaning . So you have to remove the oven racks and press the button marked self clean. The self cleaning cycle will last anywhere from 2-4 hours . once the oven unlocks after the cycle is over you have to wipe the surface with a clean clothe. It is very important to never use regular oven cleaners (i.e. Easy Off ) in a self cleaning model. If you need to spot clean something without using the Self cleaning mode you can make a paste of baking soda and water and let it sit for an hour before wiping.
As far as the top is concern, use a mild soap and a dish cloth on an everyday basis. There is products specifically designed to clean the ceran tops (good brands are "Cerama Bryte" and "CookTop", they are available at any Wal Mart) you should use one of those cream cleaner at least once a week. If something is really baked on , you can use a razor blade ( same ones ones used to removed paint off windows) or a scotch brite pad ( the blue one only.. the yellow one is too abrasive)
I have searched diligently and cannot find what the interior of the oven is made of. I suggest you open the owner's manual and find contact information for the manufacture. Call or email them for an answer.
Oven door : Wash the door and window with soap and water and rinse with clear water. Use glass cleaner only if sprayed on a cloth first. Do not use abrasive pads, powdered cleaners, or steel wool on glass and enamel, or the surfaces will be scratched.
surface burner : To absorb a spill when it is hot, pour salt on it and wipe it up when the oven has cooled. A mildly abrasive baking soda and water paste can be used in the oven, too.
Racks:Remove oven racks and clean them in warm, soapy water. Stubborn messes can be cleaned by using mild abrasive cleansers or a soap filled scouring pad. Rinse and dry the racks before returning them to the oven.
Metal trim:Metal trim can be cleaned with glass cleaners or mild cleansers, soap and water. Abrasives or cleaners made for oven interiors should not be used.
Hello. I recommend a product called Cameo. Cameo is a non abrasive cleanser actually designed for the new type enameled sinks recomended by American Standard. AND iit works great on oven door glass. You can get it at Walmart. Very inexpensive and works great on all kinds of surfaces that may be hard to clean but you don't want a harsh cleaner that might damage the surface or scratch. Has a very light to almost none scent. Very good for cleaning the oven both inside and out. Doesn't have the chemical smell left by some cleaners that can be intensified by heat.
NO..wont hurt it as loong as you got it all out.. but plz remind her that this is a self cleaning oven....Which does not mean you have to clean it yourself !!! it should be fine.. tell her next time to run it thru a self clean cycle for at least 3.5 hours on the timer setting..
