Question about Kenmore Ovens
Silicone ash is not toxic, although it will irritate the lungs if inhaled. It should be safe to just clean your oven and use it.

Testimonial: "thank you, i turned the self clean back on but my main concern is what that white foam coating the inside of the oven was and why it burned my eyes and throat so bad. i figured the foam was from the oven cleaning its self and I tried searching the web for an answer but none of the answers said anything about a self cleaning oven using anything but heat to clean its self."

Turns out that the latch is attached to a plastic piece (made by the manufacturer) and the spring melted! To boot, the fuse in the back which aids in heating the oven went out also. Repair man said this was typical after several uses in cleaning cycle. He recommended using a gentle steel wool pad with soap built in to gently remove backed on food instead of using cleaning cycle. It is just too hot for too long, and there seems to be a domino effect with things that will go wrong. Nothing like the old fashioned way and a little elbow grease!

Thank you for your inquiry, Cheryl!
I understand that you left the silicone guard on the grates and turned on self-cleaning, now you have white powder inside of your Frigidaire range. This can be removed by using hot water, baking soda, and a non-abrasive cloth. It may take elbow grease in order to remove the white powder. I would recommend not using the oven until you have removed the white powder. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt
