If your racks were shiny, no. They have come out with porcelain coated racks that you can leave in, but that was just in the last couple of years.

My oven has a self cleaning mode, do I need to wipe the oven out or do anything else before I start the cycle?


Yes, just do a quick wiping of the interior of the oven. Don't leave any pans in oven. Take out oven racks. You can leave racks in but they will discolor permanently. Better to take racks out and use Carbona Oven rack and grill cleaner. Buy at Amazon or Ace Hardware. Put racks in the bag,add cleaner, wait overnight and rinse shiny clean! After oven self clean is done, wipe interior again. It may look somewhat like gray ash

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-

Hi...I want to know if i can leave the 3 racks inside for cleaning at the same time as the oven is cleaning


It depends on the rack type. Do not leave the metal racks inside the oven during a self-clean cycle. They can be warped at the temperature of the cleaning cycle. If your oven has the porcelain-coated shelves, they can stay in the oven.

Clean large spills by hand with a non-abrasive cleanser before starting the self-clean cycle.

The manual for the JGBP90MEHBC and the JGBP90MEBBC is available from GE: http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-85131.PDF .

The manual for the older JGBP90MEA is available here: http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/Dispatcher?REQUEST=ShowPDF&FileName=49-80036.PDF .

I hope this helps.

Hello - my GE rapid clean oven ii needs cleaning. It came with the condo so I don't know if that means it's self-cleaning or I can use one of the sprays to clean it. How do I clean all the years of muck...


How to Use a GE Self-Cleaning Oven ' eHow.com
This is a link to a page that shows a generic process.
Remove racks, etc. from inside.
Lock oven door.
Start self-clean cycle, could be 2-3 hours.
Do not open door. Do not leave oven unattended. Do not leave items on top of oven.
Good Luck,
Gary

Cleaning


usually racks are not left in because the high heat generated causes the chrome finish to become dull and darker. If you don't care what the racks look like I would say go for it.

the reason they tell you not to do that is so the racks do not warp. I wouldn't do it. I did once accidently leave the racks in and they were fine that one time but I have never done it again or left any thing in. The oven gets up to a high heat and anything in it will retain that heat.

Oven racks


Hello bargarmar
Welcome

You said, Your Jen-Air stove's oven racks keep falling after the heats been on. This is scary and unsafe. Your gas range is only 2 years old.

This may be caused by the racks being left inside the range when using the self cleaning system. Which can cause the racks to become warped and or discolored.
If they are warped they may not sit even in the oven while baking and also move or change their shape
form the heat every time you use the warped racks in the oven.

If you leave the oven light on before you start the oven and watch the racks as they warm up with weight on them you will see if this is the case.
Then you will want to replace them.
Let me know what happens.
