Hi, have tried cleaning my oven with a proprietory oven cleaner to no avail. The inside of the oven looks pretty clean, but when I roast a chicken or joint of meat at say 180 c it starts smoking heavily and stinks out the kitchen. I've no manual, is this a self clean oven, and if so how do I operate the cleaning mode?
I can't find a model name but there is a label at the bottom of the oven with reads -
240v 50Hz 2.8kw
Self cleaning is sometimes a cycle called PYRO clean / look for the setting with a really high temp. self cleaning is a programmes require a massive amount of heat and will smoke a lot when on , so dont be alarmed! most oven when on self cleaning mode will automaticly lock the door due to the high heat involved in the process. so remember to remove pans etc. from inside.

The inside of the oven can be cleaned with regular soap and water. Dawn works well on built up grease. if you have very stubborn stains easy off makes a low fume oven cleaner, but try hot soapy water first. the outside can be cleaned with any stainless steel cleaner or window cleaner.
Here are some solution on how to unlock the door of your oven ans do self cleaning below.
IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at www.geappliances.com The
only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the
clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the
clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock. IF the self
clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven
to cool down before the lock can unlock (safety feature).hope this helps you out please rate this solution it helps get better results for our customers like you
Here are solution on how to clean up your oven below.
Remove oven racks and soak them in soapy water.
Turn on your automatic oven cleaner; this usually entails locking the door and turning the function switch to "clean."
Let the oven do its work;it will heat for several hours, charring off baked-on foods.
Remove oven racks and place them in soapy water to soak.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Turn the oven off and spray the inside with oven cleaner.
Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
Wipe the cleaner and dirt away with a damp sponge, rinsing frequently.
You DO NOT use a oven cleaner with a self cleaning cycle. Wipe out the oven cleaner as instructed on the can. Oven cleaner is better than self clean cycles anyway. Most self clean cycles eventually cause oven control problems.
NO..wont hurt it as loong as you got it all out.. but plz remind her that this is a self cleaning oven....Which does not mean you have to clean it yourself !!! it should be fine.. tell her next time to run it thru a self clean cycle for at least 3.5 hours on the timer setting..
