SOURCE: Do I remove the racks before self cleaning my

Hi,

It is a matter of personal choice to whether you remove the rack`s or not, no harm will come to you from not removing them but...If they are chrome finished they will become very dull and look like bbq grills over time and in extreme cases, warp and consequently not fit well.

If they are finished with enamel to match the oven liner, don`t worry, they are designed to be left in place, even during self clean cycles.

As for how you can clean them. You can do this by removing them and with a suitable work space (a bath tub or laundry tub works great) with regular oven cleaner`s, (preferably environmentally friendly...check your local by-laws) or other household cleaners with the assistance of a scrub pad and elbow grease. Be sure and rinse them thoroughly when finished with the cleaner`s.

Hope that help`s. If so, please take a second to rate the solution provided by me here at fixya. Thank you.

Good luck.

SOURCE: GE Monogram Trivection - self-clean cycle with oven racks in

Hello- First off, do not use 'self clean', or as most Techs call it: "Self- Destruct".  This 'feature' cheerfully sold by the salesman destroys more oven and range components than any other failure. Now- the racks had a thin layer of grease on them when the oven tried to turn stuff inside the oven to ash.  The grease is now a hard rubbery coating on the surface of the rack.  To solve this problem, you must determine by observation, where the rack touches the sides of the oven. These contact areas need to be cleaned thoroughly with scotchbrite and a small portion of oven cleaner. Make sure you use gloves. Sliding rack in and out to 'mark' these small spots works pretty good.  Once cleaned and wiped down, they should work fine. I recommend cleaning by removing as much 'stuff' by scraping and wiping down with moist cloth.  Turn on to 450deg for 30 min.  Much safer, less costly.                                                       Please acknowledge this posted solution if helpful.  Have more info if needed-  Thanks  -Ed

We can't get our flat oven racks in our wall oven - our electrician in to look and he wondered if they were the wrong ones.


We really need a tiny bit of clarification.... Do the oven racks go in at all? Most oven racks have a "bend" in the rear of the rack that requires you to lift up the front as you insert it into the tracks. There is a "bump" at the front of the tracks that this bent part of the rack needs to go under. This is in order to keep the racks from falling out if pulled out too far when removing items. If your racks are either too wide or too narrow to fit at all, then you likely have the wrong racks.
Hope this was helpful, and if it was please thumbs up my response.

HOW TO REMOVE FAN FORCED ELEMENT


All I needed was a phillips screw driver, a small hex socket drive and an 8mm wrench.

1. Turn off the mains at the switch board. There might be a switch near the oven or stove too, turn that off as well. Check that the power is off!
2. Remove the screws holding the oven to the cupboards. Mine was held in by 4 timber screws on the edge.
3. Slide the oven out of the wall. I used a small table to support it.
4. Remove the hex drive screws that hold the top lid on.
5. Using a trusted multimeter CHECK THAT POWER IS OFF! There are now exposed power terminals.
6. Undo the supply power terminals and remove the cable. I taped mine up.
7. Remove the back cover - more hex screws.
8. Pull the spade terminals off the heater element.
8. Inside the oven remove the shelves and side racks. They pop off the wall.
9. Pull the rear fan shield towards you. It should pop out at the top and then lift off 2 small tabs.
10. Remove the phillips screw at the bottom of the heater element.
11. Remove the 2 spring clips.
12. The element can now slide down and towards you.
13. Replace the element and put it all back together in reverse order.

I cannot get my Electrolux self cleaning range to clean. It tells me to remove the racks, but I have. Any suggestions?


I finally figured it out! The rack supports actually come out also. Not just the sliding supports, but the whole metal part with all the supports on it. At first I thought they were bolted in, but I read somewhere that they come out, too. Upon further investigation, I found the rack supports just slide into the side walls at 4 points. I had to use a little force to pull them out, but they came out and my oven is self-cleaning as I write this. I just thought I would share in case you or others haven't figured it out yet. Now I will just have to see how hard it is to get them back in....

Electrolux Icon Oven won't self clean - "Remove Racks" displayed


I was getting the remove rack error until I finally figured out what it wanted me to remove. When you say you removed the rack supports, do you mean just the sliding parts or the whole side metal rack support? At first I thought they were bolted in, but I read somewhere that they come out, too. Upon further investigation, I found the rack supports just slide into the side walls at 4 points. I had to use a little force to pull them out, but they came out and my oven is self-cleaning as I write this. I just thought I would share in case you or others haven't figured it out yet.
