Re: rules for self clean
The racks are ok to remain during self cleaning. Remove any foil or other added materials. Remove any heavy build-ups because this will cause excessive smoking or require more than a single cleaning 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
make sure the oven door closes fully, nothing preventing it from closing. Some brands want you to remove the racks from the inside of the oven before it will activate the cleaning cycle. once door is completely closed, select the self clean cycle and press start. if you have a lock that you manually have to lock (older style of ovens), you will have to lock it before it will enter into the self cleaning mode. most of the time, if there is an issue before you try to enter the cleaning mode, it should tell you on the display,...i.e...remove racks, lock door, etc. good luck. look for me on 6ya if you need more detailed help.
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.
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 oven should have a self cleang button, just remove the oven racks, because the heat will turn the shinny racks to a dull shine, and press the self cleaning button, it will go through the cleaning cycle, the cycle takes about 3-1/2 - 4 hours
I assume you have tried leaving the racks in while on self cleaning mode! so as a chef also i'll tell you they have a cleaner called oven and grill cleaner, but ht eobject needs to be hot! about 200 degrees, but it will melt off anything! I mean anything!. BE carefull not to smell fumes, please
I JUST CALLED FRIGIDAIRE AND GOT INSTRUCTIONS FOR SELF CLEANING:
1. TAKE OUT THE RACKS UNLESS YOU DON'T MIND THEM TARNISHING 2. TURN THE "SELECTOR" AND/OR "OVEN" DIALS TO THE LOCK (OR CLEAN) POSITION 3. PRESS THE "COOK TIME" BUTTON 4. SET THE CLOCK TO 2 OR 3 HOURS (I.E., "2:00" OR "3:00"), DEPENDING ON HOW DIRTY THE OVEN IS 5. PRESS "START" BUTTON 6. YOU WILL HEAR THE MOTORIZED LOCK MOVE INTO PLACE; WAIT ABOUT 30 SECONDS, THE DOOR SHOULD BE LOCKED AND CLEANING WILL BEGIN. 7. CLEANING WILL STOP AFTER THE TIME SELECTED (I.E., 2 / 3 HRS) AND THE DOOR SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY UNLOCK
Self cleans generally do a good ****on small messes in 2 -2.5 hours. Larger messes take 3. Leaving the racks in is okay...but they will likely lose their shiny appearance. Manuals are on the GE website.
A wonderful feature is that the ovens self-clean with the press of a few buttons. Only one oven can be programmed to self-clean at a time. Remove the oven racks. Turn off the oven light and close the door. Press the "Clean" button and then press "Auto Set" to automatically clean the oven for 3 hours. Press the "Auto Set" pad again to set the oven for a 4-hour clean cycle, or press the button one more time for a 2-hour cleaning. The oven locks when in cleaning mode. When the oven is finished cleaning, the word "Cleaned" will be displayed on the control panel, and the oven will remain locked until the oven has cooled, which takes about an hour. To cancel the self-clean cycle, just press the "Cancel" button. Simple!
