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

Trying to self clean our Electrolux Icon oven for the first time. Have removed the racks and rack supports. However, when I press "clean" it still displayed "remove racks" and won't start (beeps three times instead). Frustrating!!! I have removed both the racks AND the supports and the remove racks is still blinking. I have an Electrolux EW30Es65GSB electric built in range. It was manufacutred in Nov. 2008. This is the first time I tried to clean it. My entire kitchen remodel was a nightmare so this is par for the course!

SOURCE: 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. Now I will just have to see how hard it is to get them back in...

Push the racks all the way to the rear of the oven. Lift the rear of the rack to dislodge it from the side rail and pull it out.

SOURCE: I am trying to clean

Hello Cynthia,

Welcome to FixYa.

Is this the first time the un it has been set for self-clean ? Or is it the first time you have set it for self clean ?

The reason I ask is based on your post "The racks are removed. When I try to start the self cleaning feature - a message flashes in red to remove oven racks " I really don't think anything is wrong with your oven.

This is simply a reminder to remove your racks before the oven reaches the temperature ( usually above 550 ) which the door cannot be opened even by canceling the clean cycle until it cools down below 550...a safety measure.

If you allow the unit to proceed through the self clean the message will go away after a while and the cycle will continue on it's merry way.

Hope that answers your question or quells your concern. Those darn self clean ovens get so hot they will make your nice racks look like barbecue grills if left in during the cleaning, it is definitely better to be sure now than sorry later though, glad you asked.

Thank you for choosing FixYa. Let me know if you need any further assistance and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

How do I clean the electrolux oven? It won't start after i take the racks out


As you did not specify the exact model I assume that this is a self-cleaning oven, in other words with pyrolytic cleaning. It has a microswitch which is activated by removing the racks and just because that you can not run the pyrolytic cleaning otherwise racks would be destroyed. Do not forget that the temperature during pyrolytic cleaning is app. 500 degrees Celsius. For that reasons the oven door is locked when temperature increasing to app. 300 degrees and unlocked when the temperature decreasing to the app. 200 degrees. It is clear that when you remove the racks only program that you can run is pyrolytic cleaning.

Electrolux dual fuel range 316471210 self clean remove racks message displayed and cannot proceed


Hi friend, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that you are receiving a "remove racks" message on your Electrolux range. The oven racks and supports must be removed before the self-clean will initiate or the control will not allow the self-clean to turn on. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

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


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you are unable to self-clean your Electrolux Icon range, model# E30SO75ESS, due to it stating "Remove Racks", when you already have. Please follow these instructions for cleaning your oven:

1. Remove the turntable from the oven before the Refresh Cycle. No food should be in the oven.
2. The Refresh Cycle is 30 minutes.
3. During the Refresh Cycle some smoke and odor may occur. Open a window or use the ventilation fan in the room.

If this does not help, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging your appliance or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try the "Refresh cycle". I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Electrolux Icon Oven self cleaning won't start- the lock button keeps flashing. Yes, the racks and rack holders are removed.


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are having trouble with your Electrolux Icon oven, model# E30SO75ESS, and running the self-clean cycle. I see that the lock button keeps flashing and that you have the racks and rack holders out. I suggest following the steps below to run your self-clean cycle:

    1) Place the rack holders and the racks in your oven.

    2) Reset your appliance, by shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes.

    3) Restore power.

    4) Reset the clock, by pressing the "Clock" button then press the number "2". Enter in the time of day, and then press the "Clock" button again.

    5) Start the self-clean cycle with the racks in your range. This is to make your oven recognize that the racks are in the oven.

    6) Take the racks and rack holders out and start the self-clean cycle again.

    I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your oven status has changed successfully.

    -Best Regards-

Electrolux icon duel fuel range racks red light wont stop flashing even though I removed all racks, so oven will not start self clean cycle


Good Morning Andrea,

I see that you are having trouble with your Electrolux range, model# E30DF74GPS, and getting it to go into the self-clean cycle. I would suggest giving it a hard reset. First make sure the racks are in. Next, cut the power at the circuit breaker and leave it off for 2-3 minutes. After the time has elapsed cut the power back on. Start the self-clean cycle with the racks inside the oven. We're trying to get the oven to recognize the racks are inside. Once it states the racks are in, cancel out and take the racks out. Now, with the racks out start the self-clean cycle again. If you are still receiving the red light blinking, I suggest contacting the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. Hope this has been helpful.

-Best Regards-

There is a button on the top receiver bracket on the left side... when you take the rack support bracket out you will see it. Take a damp sponge and go over that area, pressing the plunger/button in several times. That should do it. Sometimes grease build up can prevent the button from popping out all the way, so the oven thinks that the racks are still in there.
