You can easily clean it with easyoff oven cleaner available at most grocery stores.. Yes you can replace the door but the cost would be prohibitive.

Why are there brown/white streaks inside oven door glass after using self cleaner 1 time?


Thank you for your post, friend!

From my understanding after you used the self-clean feature on your Frigidaire range you now have brown and white streaks on the indoor glass. Typically streaks can be removed by cleaning the interior glass. Normally it is recommended to have a professional clean the inside glass but a consumer can do it as well. Use caution when following the steps some pieces can have sharp edges. You will need to have a Phillips head screwdriver or small quad bit driver.

A. Refer to owners guide for instructions on how to remove oven door.


B. With door in broil stop position lift door assembly off hinges.

C. Lay door on table, position so that handle hangs freely over edge of table

D. Remove 2 screws and washers that secure handle to lining assembly.

E. Remove 8 screws that attach textured steel door wrapper trim to lining assembly 3 at top, 3 at bottom, 1 on each side

F. Lift door lining up and out of wrapper trim assembly.

G. Lay lining assembly on table with wool shield/inner part of lining facing up.

H. Remove 2 glass clamps via 2 screws per clamp. These clamps attach innermost clear glass to wool shield.

I. Lift out center clear glass from wool shield, this glass just lays onto the wool shield and is held in place by the glass/ clamps in item H.

J. Clean each glass with appropriate cleaner.

K. One glass that remains in door lining assembly can at this time be cleaned without further disassembly the lining assembly.

L. Reassemble in reverse order.


Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

I need an owner manuel for Caloric Range Model # EST 345 I can'g figure out how to run the self cleaning oven cycle.


you might try the following, although it is the instructions for an old model, it may be relevant;

"The actual self-cleaning process is initiated by a simple 5 step procedure: 1. Set the range clock to time of day. Note: on models not equipped with an automatic oven timer, the self-cleaning cycle is preprogrammed for a 21/2 hour cycle. Use Steps 3, 4 and 5 only. 2.Establish the length of cleaning time by:
A. Setting the start time. Press and turn the start dial of the automatic oven timer clockwise to the desired starting time. B. Set the stop time. Press and turn the stop dial of the automatic oven timer clockwise to the desired stop time. Max time is 3 hours miniumum 1/12 hours. 3. Set the oven selector dial on the control panel to "Clean" 4. Set the temperature control dial to "off". If you temperature control dial has a "Clean" position, then set the dial to "Clean" instead of "Off". 5. Remove oven racks, broiler pan and broiler grid from lower oven. Close and lock the oven door by moving the latch lever as far right as it will go - into the locked position. If the lever is accidently dislodged restore it to the locked position. Otherwise, the self-cleaning process will not take place. Shortly after the cleaning cycle has begun, the oven temperatur reaches a degree in excess of the normal broiling temperature. The red "Clean" light will come on and the clean cycle will start. In a few minutes the door lock lever, which you have placed in the locked position, will automatically be secured to prevent the oven door from beging opened during the cleaning cycle. This latch remains locked until the clean cycle is complete and the oven temperature reduces to normal baking and broiling temperaturs. NOTE: Prior to self cleaning cycle operation, the oven and surface lights must be turned offed. The upper oven can be used."

Ranges self cleaning instructions


Hi
An oven is a standard piece of equipment in the kitchen of a home or apartment. Often, the original instructions for operating and cleaning the oven have been lost or are not included with the lease of an apartment or purchase of a pre-owned home. To get the most use out of your oven and keep it functioning properly, it is important to know how to use it.
Adjust the racks to the desired position. Some Frigidaire models feature heating elements on the top of the oven while others are located on the bottom. Generally, moving your dish farther away from the heating source will result in a slower cooking time or reduced browning. Choose the desired oven temperature and set by turning the temperature knob or manual punching in the numbers followed by the "Enter" or "Start" button. Allow the oven to pre-heat before placing dishes into the oven to bake.

How to use..

Open the door while standing to the side of the oven. Standing directly in front can result in burns from the hot air. Wearing a dry oven mitt, place pans onto the desired oven rack. If baking more than one dish, stagger the pans on different racks, so that one is not directly on top of the other. This will help ensure even heating. Close the door and set the timer, using the numeric key pad or up-and-down arrows followed by the "Start" or "Enter" button. If you want to encourage additional browning on top of the dish, set the oven to "Broil" after the dish has cooked through. Monitor the dish carefully, as food can burn quickly. Remove the dish when completed using dry oven mitts, and turn off the oven.

How to Clean..

Do not attempt to clean the oven until it has cooled completely. The oven's exterior and the interior frame can be cleaned using a sponge dampened with hot water and dish detergent. The glass portion of the door may be cleaned with paper towels and glass cleaner. For ease of cleaning, wipe spills as soon as possible after they occur. Wait until the oven has cooled and then clean using the sponge method. If this does not work, a spray-on oven cleaner can be used, according to the manufacturer's directions for a manual cleaning oven, or for a self-cleaning oven, push the self-cleaning button and allow the oven to cycle through the automatic cleaning, usually about 1 hour. Never scrub the rubber seal around the over door, as this can lead to deterioration and prevent the oven from sealing properly.

hope you will be helpfull

I am in the process of cleaning my Whirlpool self cleaning oven and it seems like there should be about 2 hours left on the timer and when I came out to the kitchen the timer was off and the door is still...


most likely the safety latch got stuck from the super heat of the oven while cleaning. try tapping the latch with a screwdriver and hammer, spray a bit of wd-40 on it wont hurt. i believe the self cleaning on ovens is crazy, as the heat damages things, including the finish of the unit.

Aft self-cleaning, top of oven door and knob panel discolored


This is a problem with a bad door gasket, or a mis-adjusted latch. That needs to be addressed, then you can replace the discolored parts. The discoloration is permanent.

How do I use my self cleaning option?


It depends on which model you have. Some have automatic locks others have a lever but the door has to be locked in order for self clean to work. Then you will have a knob to turn to "self clean" or a button that says clean or self clean to push then you will very likely have to select a temp and maybe press start. It is a very high heat process it doesn't always smell pleasant normally takes several hours 3-5 hours. The door will remain locked untill clean cycle completes and the oven cools. Then you can open the door and wipe out the ash.

Self cleaning


You can go to the Maytag web site and download the manual.  www.maytag.com, or go to http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/8113p293.pdf
and download the manual CAUTION 
• It is normal for parts of the ovens to become hot during a self-clean cycle. 
• To prevent damage to oven doors, do not attempt to open the doors when LOCK is displayed. 
• Avoid touching doors, windows or oven vent area during 
a clean cycle. 
Do not use commercial oven cleaners on the oven finish or around any part of the ovens.  They will damage the finish or parts. 
Do not leave baking/pizza stone in the oven during self-clean. 

The self-clean cycle uses above-normal cooking temperatures 
to automatically clean the oven interior. 
The oven should be cleaned regularly by wiping up spillovers 
to prevent excessive smoke and flare-ups.  Do not allow a 
heavy build-up of soil to accumulate in the oven. 
During the cleaning process, the kitchen should be well 
ventilated to get rid of normal odors associated with cleaning. 

Before Self-Cleaning 
1. Turn off the oven light before cleaning as the light may burn out during the clean cycle. 
2. Remove broiler pan, all pans, and oven racks from the oven.  The oven racks will discolor and may not slide easily after a self-clean cycle if they are not removed. 
3. Clean oven frame, door frame (area outside of gasket, and around the opening in the door gasket) with a nonabrasive 
cleaner such as Bon Ami* or detergent and water.  The self-cleaning process does not clean these areas.  They should be cleaned to prevent soil from baking on during the clean 
cycle.  (The gasket is the seal around the oven door and window.) 
4. To prevent damage, do not clean or rub the gasket around the oven door.  The gasket is designed to seal in heat during the clean cycle. 
5. Wipe up excess grease or spillovers from the oven bottom. This prevents excessive smoking, flare-ups or flaming during the clean cycle. 
6. Wipe up sugary and acidic spillovers such as sweet potatoes, tomato, or milk-based sauces. Porcelain enamel is acid-resistant, not acid-proof.  The porcelain finish may discolor if acidic or sugary spills are not wiped up before a self-clean cycle. 

Important: 
• Oven temperature must be below 400° F to program a clean cycle. 
Only one oven can be cleaned at a time. 
• Both oven doors lock when either oven is being cleaned. 
To set Self-Clean: 
1. Close the oven door. 
2. Press the Clean pad. 
    • CLEAN flashes. 
    • SET and UPPER or LOWER flash in the display. 
3. Press the Autoset pad. 
    • “MEd” (Medium Soil, 3 hours) is displayed. 
4. Press the Autoset pad to scroll through the self-cleaning settings. 
     “HVy” (Heavy Soil, 4 hours) 
     “MEd” (Medium soil, 3 hours) 
     “LITE” ( Light Soil, 2 hours) 
Choosing the soil level of the oven automatically programs the self-cleaning time. 
5. After four seconds, the oven will start cleaning. 
    • If the door is not closed, beeps will sound and ‘door’ will display.         If the door is not closed within 30 seconds, the self-cleaning       operation will be canceled and the display will return to the time of day. 
    • CLEAN will appear in the display. 
    • LOCK will flash in the display.  Once the door locks, LOCK will
      remain steady. 
    • The cleaning time will start counting down in the display.
