Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Husband used oven cleaner inside, wiped all the product out, then closed it and turned on the self clean. while it was working, the fumes were so bad he couldn't take it and flipped the lock back to stop the process. NOw, I can't use the oven because if I turn it on, it starts to beep and won't stop because, I imagine, he stopped the clean in middle of cycle. Have to use only stove top. Need oven. ANY way to get this straight? We have tried flipping the fuse switch and left off for days - didn't work.

What should I do to clean my oven?


You can use Easy Off 'Fume Free' oven cleaner on a self-cleaning oven, if you want to manually clean it, but do not use it with the self-cleaning cycle.

My husband sprayed the non-fume Easy-Off oven spray into our KitchenAid self-cleaning oven. Then turned IT ON TO CLEAN! It was on for about 1/2 hour. There are instructions all over the can NOT to turn...


The best thing to do is with a cold oven, go ahead and use the Easy-Off non fume again and wait 2 hours. This should remove the original grease as well as the left over Easy Off from the 1st application.

How do I get the door open after self cleaning and what do I push to self cleaning


Hi, Some ovens are self cleaning During the cleaning process, the oven heats up to a temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The extreme heat cooks off food and spills inside the oven, leaving ash that can easily be wiped out. The oven door locks while it is cleaning to prevent the door from being opened. Self cleaning ovens are better insulated than regular ovens to keep the extreme heat inside.

Instructions

Read the owner's manual that came with your oven before you perform self cleaning. Although all self cleaning ovens work basically the same way, there may be slight variations for some manufacturers and models.

Take out the oven racks. You need to clean the oven racks by hand, and then put them back in when the oven is done cleaning.

Wipe up any spills and messes inside the oven first, using warm water and a mild soap. Ovens smoke more during cleaning when there is food inside. Wash the inside of the oven door as well. Do not scrub the door gaskets, just gently wipe them off. Damaging the gaskets prevents the oven from sealing.

Lock your oven door manually if your model does not lock it automatically when you clean.

Open a window near the oven for ventilation. There is a certain amount of smoke when you clean the oven. The dirtier the oven is, the more smoke is created.

Turn the control on your oven to "clean" and set the timer for 2 to 5 hours depending on how dirty your oven is, and what the manufacturer recommends.

Wait for the cleaning to finish and the oven to cool before opening door. When oven is fully cooled wipe up any ash inside. If your oven is not completely clean, next time set the timer for longer. If your oven is spotless you might want to see if you can get away with a shorter cleaning time.

Tips & Warnings

Because self cleaning ovens are better insulated, they are more energy efficient when used for cooking. However, if you run the self cleaning feature on your oven more than once a month, you offset the savings you realized. With light to moderate use your oven should be able to be cleaned every one to three months.


Save on the electricity used with a self cleaning oven by cleaning the oven right after use at a high temperature. For example, if you set your oven to clean after making French fries at 450 degrees, it takes less energy to get the oven up to the required 900 degrees.


If you have pet birds, take them out of the house before cleaning your oven. Over heated cooking surfaces, oils and fats, can create fumes that are harmful for a bird's delicate respiratory system.

Hope it helped.

Can you manually clean a self cleaning oven?


Yes you can use any of the available oven cleaning products if you wish to do it the hard way. I use Easy Off brand cleaner due to the fumes from the self cleaning when my baby grand daughter is here, which just about all the time..

    I have never used a self cleaning oven.i have already put oven cleaner on the inside and let it stand for awhile is this right? god I don't want to blow up


    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.

    How to self clean oven


    If it has a self clean feature, you can set that feature to self clean. If it does not, you can use Easy Off oven cleaner. You should turn the breaker off to the oven first. Lay newspaper on the floor around the oven to catch drips and spray the entire oven. Let it sit for a few hours and use your vent hood to elimnate fumes, then wipe out with an old cloth. Hope this helps and answers your question. Ella

    Self cleaning


    Never use spray cleaners in a self clean oven it will void your warranty and possibly ruin the oven. it sounds like what may have happened is the fumes from the spray ignited inside the oven and may have blown out the pilot light if your using gas.
    or maybe replace the thermocouple. sorry, hope that helps.
