Left a silicone liner in a self-cleaning oven when I cleaned it
I turned on the self-cleaning element in my Beaumark self-cleaning oven and accidently left a silicone liner in the oven. After the cleaning was over, I loked in an the liner was part powder, part fused to the bottom of the oven. Any suggestions on what to do or do I have to buy a new range.

if its self cleanin it will say right on it "self cleaning"
self cleaning ovens do exactly that they clean themselves no harsh chemicals (oven cleaner foam) are needed to dissolve the baked on cooking goo that builds up inside ovens , although if one uses a foil liner in bottom then one might never need to self clean it , but some models cant use liners due to convection fans air flow getting in the way ,
self cleaning ovens have the ability to get very hot (500 degrees plus) no one should ever open a oven in cleaning cycle as this hi temp can spontaneously combust to ashes your hair/clothing never the less burn the hand that opened it severely(most lock the door for safety) all that needs done after cycle, is ashes need wiped out with damp towel next day after cleaning cycle is done and oven cooled off completely , im waiting on the day they make one that sweeps its self out into the dust bin ,(not yet )
How to CLEAN a Frigidaire Self-Cleaning Oven Step 1Use a plastic spoon to scrape away any extra spillovers or burnt-on food from inside the oven. Remove as much of this as you can before running the self-cleaning cycle, because any spillovers left in the oven during the cleaning cycle may cause a lot of smoke.
Step 2Wipe off the inside of the oven with a rag dipped in soapy water. Be careful not to get any cleaning supplies on the oven door gasket or to disrupt the position of the gasket at all; having a good seal is critical to the success of the oven's self-cleaning cycle.
Step 3Clean any soil away from the oven frame and its door liner with a rag dipped in soapy water. Any soil left on these parts of the oven may become burned on during the self-cleaning cycle.
Step 4Pull the broiler pan and grid, any utensils, and any tin foil that may have been left in the oven out of it. They can't withstand the extreme temperatures the self-cleaning oven will reach. It's okay to leave the oven racks in the oven.
Step 5Make sure the oven door is completely closed.
Step 6Press the "CLEAN" button on the control pad. Use the up and down arrows to select the desired cleaning time; use 2 hours for a lightly soiled oven and 3 or 4 hours for a dirtier oven. The oven will lock itself and begin the cleaning cycle.
Step 7Wait for the cycle to end and the oven to cool; it will then unlock itself automatically. Don't try to open the oven door before it has unlocked itself.
I understand that you left the silicone guard on the grates and turned on self-cleaning, now you have white powder inside of your Frigidaire range. This can be removed by using hot water, baking soda, and a non-abrasive cloth. It may take elbow grease in order to remove the white powder. I would recommend not using the oven until you have removed the white powder. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt
the first problem may very well be your control board and or as they call it a clock timer.while the unit is in the cleaning mode you need to check the power from the control board to the elements, you may also have
If the display still works but neither the Bake or the Broil elements wont heat up, it's likely that the Thermal Cutoff has opened and has not reset itself. This is a common problem after self Cleaning.
The fix is to replace the Thermal cutoff which requres you to pull the oven and remove the back panel to get at the thermal cutoff.
What happens is that in Self Clean, both Broil and bake elements are used and the oven gets so hot that the middle skin (between the oven liner and the back panel, where the thermal cutoff is mounted gets so hot the thermal cutoff operates. It should reset itself but sometimes doesn't and then you have to replace it.
depends on type of unit,but most separate by opening oven door and removing the screws around the perimeter of the door, be careful reinstalling as to get inner and outer glass re-positioned right along with insulation,this is especially critical because the outer glass can't withstand self-clean temps and will break
Hi Leia, Unfortunately, the aluminum actually melted and adhered. The only perfect fix is to buy a new bottom piece for the oven, it costs about $30.00 and it is very easy to remove the old and install the new. Just a few screws.
You can get the part directly from sears by going to sears.com
I was wrong (I think). the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said. He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working. In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time. Also, I was judging by smell. We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair. Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.
I also don't have a manual, but work on computers so tried some buttons and they did the trick.
On the left hand side is the button that has Mode, and then a series of buttons.
On the right hand side there is a series of buttons, and one looks like heat coming from the bottom. Turn this button to that setting.
On the left side, press the mode button, and then press the button that looks like a thermometer. This is the mode for setting the temperature of the over.
Beside the display windows, there is knob that looks like a dial on an analog clock. Turn this dial until the temperature you want appears.
