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.

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
