I have a crosley range with the self cleaning oven. I had a gravy over-flow on the top of the range and it dripped into the vents on the oven door and consequently is sandwiched between the outside glass and the inside glass of the oven door. How do I take the glass off the door to clean this. It is such a mess and we are afraid of breaking the door latches. We tried to remove the door but there seems to be some sort of lock that stops us from pulling the door all the way out of the slots. Can you please advise.

You will need to find the model number to get a manual. http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ provides a search box for looking up the manuals. For GE ranges, the model number could be in several places: on the frame behind the warming or storage drawer or kickplate, on the left leg behind the warming or storage drawer or kickplate, on the frame of the oven behind the door, under the left front surface burner, or under the lift-up cook-top at the center or on the right hand side.
If you clean the oven with non-abrasive products and avoid the spray on oven cleaners, you are unlikely to damage the surfaces/range even without the manual for your range. (Use glass cleaners for glass cook-top.) Warm water mixed with a mild detergent is useful for most spills. Avoid cleaning the seal around the oven door; damaging the seal may cause major problems.
Yes you can. You should be able to remove the screws on the inner lip of the oven door and remove the outer panel/glass so you can clean up the gravy. Be very careful doing this because the panel can be heavy and the glass can break if you drop it.
The only way to clean this is to dismantle the door. Most brands you can remove the door and set it on a counter to dismantle. This can be very complicated, depending on the brand and model. Leaving the gravy inside the door won't hurt the range, and self cleaning usually will not clean this completely. It usually just bakes it on harder. Good Luck Appliance Specialists
I had a similar problem with a spill running into the vent and between the glass. I had to take the door apart clean it and then put it back together. It sounds hard, but it was just a few screws and a little time.
Normal operation. If in doubt place a high temp theromoter on range top to see if it exceeds 600-900 degrees
The basic idea is "burn baby, burn!"
Self-cleaning ovens use an approximately 900 degrees Fahrenheit (482 degrees
Celsius) temperature cycle to burn off spills leftover from baking, without the
use of any chemicals. A self-cleaning oven is designed with a mechanical
interlock (patented in 1982) to keep the oven door locked and closed during and
soon after the high-temperature cleaning cycle, which can be approximately three
hours. The door stays locked to prevent burn injuries. You can open the oven
door after the oven cools to approximately 600 F (315 C).
I have a crosley but don't know if it is the same model. 1. move door to locked position 2. Press self-clean pad. 3. press up or down to select clean time (it will flash 3:00) 4. if you wish to delay the start of cleaning press a. stop time b. press the up button on pad to select the time of day then press clock and time of day will reappear. Press stop time pad to recall the time you set. 5. When the oven turns on the oven on indicator will light. Internal lock will engage and door cannot be unlocked. 6. About one hour after the clean cycle ends, the lock indicator will turn off. The oven door can be unlocked and opened. ** to cancel press cancel. Hope that helps! RC
The marks may be on the inside part of the glass. If so then the door will need to be taken apart for cleaning. You can use a razor blade scraper and glass cleaner to soften the buildup. Self cleaning won't remove if it is on the inside.
you need to remove the door. On your model just grab the door and lift and it should lift right off.
Then remove the screws that run along the bottom of the door. Remove the bottom trim and the glass should slide down and off.
