Pouring out smoke when using self clean feature -

Just used the self clean feature on my ge profile smooth cooktop. I had baked over barbecue sauce on the bottom and after it got hot the oven was smoking everywhere. It looked like maybe there was a fire in there. Haven't opened it yet as it is locked. I have used it before and no problems . Had it for about 10 years now. The smoke was so bad we can't stay in house it burns our eyes.

Whirlpool self-cleaning feature not available


Because the features mention utilize 220 VAC power, I do not advise you attempt any corrections. Very dangerous; unless you are a trained technician. If the unit is in Warranty, get the Whirlpool folks out to you home ASAP.

How do i clean my cooktop on a whirlpool 465


Light Cleaning
  • Clean your CERAN cooktop after every use. To remove simple spills, wait for the surface to cool before beginning the cleaning process. Pour a small amount of cleaning cream on a damp paper towel and wipe the cooktop surface until the soil and cream are no longer visible. The cleaning cream will leave a protective finish, which will preclude scratches and other types of damage.
  • Heavy Cleaning
  • Wear a heavy oven mitt to remove burnt foods or liquids while the cooktop is still warm. Use the metal razor scraper to remove the substances that are stuck to the cooktop surface. Once the cooktop has cooled, use a damp paper towel to spread a small amount of cleaning cream over the entire cooktop surface and wipe it thoroughly until the cream is no longer visible. Rinse the cooktop with water and dry with a clean paper towel.
  • Cleaning Melted Substances
  • Remove melted plastic, foil or other kitchen products immediately using the metal razor scraper. Spills containing sugar, such as ketchup, tomato sauce, syrup or pudding, must also be removed with the metal scraper at once. It is best to remove these substances while the burner is still hot. Once the melted substance has been removed and the cooktop has cooled, use a damp paper towel and cleaning cream to complete the cleaning process. To protect your hands, remember to wear a thick oven mitt when cleaning the hot cooktop.
  • Tips
  • Scratch marks resulting from daily use will not interfere with the performance of your cooktop. Pots and pans with flat bottoms and those that cover the entire burner surface are recommended for use on your CERAN cooktop.
  • Warnings
  • Spills containing sugar may permanently damage your cooktop unless the substance is removed immediately. Use only the recommended cleaning products on your CERAN cooktop to protect it from damage. Do not use scouring pads, plastic coated sponges or abrasive products of any type. Do not use oven spray or any other type of cleaner containing ammonia or chlorine. Clean all spills thoroughly before using your cooktop again.

    Can you put the top oven grates in the oven while it is self cleaning


    Hi,

    The top burner grates are designed to handle direct heat in excess of self clean temperatures.

    You can put the grates in to the oven during self clean... but it will not clean them. The baked on residue needs some chemical reaction to break down the reside on them. I would suggest soaking them in an oven cleaner like easy off. Spray them down good then using rubber gloves put them into a plastic garbage bag, spray them again in the bag and close it up. Let them sit and soak for an hour or so then wash them off. This is best done outside so the odors will not be in the home in an enclosed area.

    How to start the self-cleaning cycle in jenn-air sce30600?


    An electric cooktop uses a great deal more electrical energy than a gas cooktop. The electric portion of the gas cooktop runs the electronics (clock, timer, ignitor, oven light, etc.), and these are small electrical loads. An electric cooktop uses more electrical energy cooking a batch of, say, pasta sauce, than a gas cooktop would normally use in a month or two. There just isn't a good comparison as there is such a broad difference in the electrical usage of the two units.

    Stained gas range burner grates


    Hey y'all. I have the same lame GE profile gas cooktop with the gray grates and burner covers. I know this is the expensive way to go, but I use Easy-Off "self-cleaning oven" oven cleaning spray. For about $5, you get 3 cleanings. It is a pain to do, but I have better things to do than scrub these grates all the time. I don't know why, but the baked on crud just drives me crazy. I tried everything to clean them completely. I even tried to scrub the darn things with a kitchen pumice stone(sold at walmart)but it is impossible to get the curvy areas clean. Now the paint has started to wear off on the burner covers.

    I do not use the oven cleaner on the cooktop itself. I use soft-scrub with baking soda, then cover the cooktop with a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil and cut out holes for the burners. This keeps most of the spills contained, and helps with cleanup.

    I visited to the GE parts web page, and they only sell gray grates and covers. I am going to buy black BBQ grill paint(spray can)from Home Depot and try it on the burner covers first. They are the least expensive to replace if it fails, and if it works, I will paint the grates with this high temperature paint. I will keep you posted on the results.

    Regards,

    Laura D.

    Can't get GE profile cooktop clean


    the problem is you didn't clean the unit before you used it the first time w/ the ceramabrite wax. the glass on your cooktop is porous and unless you seal it before ever using whatever went into the pores originally will always be in the pores and no amount of cleaner will get it out.

    Cleaning grates of GE profile gas stove


    Sounds crazy, but this works. Soak the grates in warm to hot water with 2 dryer sheets (Bounce), let them soak for an hour or two. Unbeliveable how they came clean. I did have to use a Scotch Brite pad on the two that I use most, but it sure beats replacing them.

    No recalls that I know of.  The switch for that burner has shorted and will need to be replaced.  It will be fine once it is repaired.
