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.

My oven has a self cleaning mode, do I need to wipe the oven out or do anything else before I start the cycle?


Yes, just do a quick wiping of the interior of the oven. Don't leave any pans in oven. Take out oven racks. You can leave racks in but they will discolor permanently. Better to take racks out and use Carbona Oven rack and grill cleaner. Buy at Amazon or Ace Hardware. Put racks in the bag,add cleaner, wait overnight and rinse shiny clean! After oven self clean is done, wipe interior again. It may look somewhat like gray ash

    How do I use the self cleaning functions - kitchenaid oven


    Hi,

    Please allow me to help you first with some background of self cleaning functions:

    Self-cleaning ovens use an approximately 900 degrees Fahrenheit (482 degrees Celsius) temperature cycle to burn off spills leftover from baking, without the use of any chemicals. A self-cleaning oven is designed with a mechanical interlock (patented in 1982) to keep the oven door locked and closed during and soon after the high-temperature cleaning cycle, which can be approximately three hours. The door stays locked to prevent burn injuries. You can open the oven door after the oven cools to approximately 600 F (315 C).

    If baking spills are not wiped up after baking, there may be some smoke during an oven cleaning cycle. It is a good idea to remove any pets from the area when running the oven's self-cleaning cycle. There have been reports of oven-heated Teflon-coated items releasing odorless fumes deadly to birds.
    Self-cleaning ovens have the added benefit of more insulation, which helps the energy efficiency for regular baking. This is similar in concept to an increased R-factor for home insulation.

    You will also save energy costs by using the self-cleaning cycle right after baking, to make use of the already partially heated oven.

    Please check this website mentioned bellow which would give you a detailed method of how to perform it:

    Hope this would help you .

    God Bless.

    Self-cleaning ovens are the easiest type of oven to clean. Simply remove the oven racks, it should be fairly simple.Take everything out of the oven, including the grill. At the top of your oven door, there should be a latch. Lock that, then look on your setting dial. There should be a self-clean notch on it. Turn your dial to that and let it do its thing: The timer will shut it off and unlock the door when it's done.
    set your oven to the cleaning mode, then wait a few hours. After the cleaning cycle is complete, you will need to wipe up the residue inside the oven with a damp cloth or sponge. While your self-cleaning oven is doing its job, take time to scrub down your oven racks with a steel wool detergent pad. The exterior of your oven can be cleaned with a sponge. Use basic window cleaner to clean and shine any glass or chrome areas.

    If your oven is not a continuous or self-cleaning model, you are in for a little more work. Make sure you have rubber gloves (the longer, the better) to protect your skin from harsh cleanser. You will need to purchase a cleaner specially made for cleaning ovens. Be sure to ventilate the room well as these types of cleaners give off potentially harmful fumes.

    How long you leave the cleaner on the interior of your oven will depend on the directions on the can. Most oven cleaners will need to be left on for several hours or overnight, others explicitly state that it should not be left on for longer than 2 hours. When removing the cleaner, be prepared for a lot of scrubbing and rinsing. You will want to ensure that all the oven cleaner is removed from the oven before use.

    Perhaps you don't want to use harsh cleansers on your oven. In this case, you will find that a simple mixture of white vinegar and baking soda can do the job. Lightly moisten the interior of your oven with water. Then, apply a thick layer of baking soda. Allow the baking soda to sit for about three hours.

    After three hours, spray the entire oven with white vinegar in a spray bottle. You will notice that when the vinegar hits the baking soda, fizzing occurs. This fizzing action helps remove stuck-on mess almost as easily as any commercial cleaner. Allow the vinegar and baking soda to sit for a few more hours. Then, simply remove with a damp sponge and some water.hope this helps pls apreciate with a fixyaa rating thanks and Godbless

    The filter in the jenn air can be run through the dishwasher. clean the outside of the oven as best as you can before you start the self clean cycle. NEVER!!! use oven cleaner inside a self cleaning oven. or on the gasket. . You can use a degreaser or oven cleaner on the cooktop on any stainless steel, procelain or chrome surface. Don't get oven cleaner on painted or aluminum surfaces. Rinse off very well.

    Inside the oven door there are some stains from liquid spill that went through the vent, how can I clean it.


    If your oven is self-cleaning, consult the owner's manual for instructions on how to use this feature. The self-cleaning feature works by heating the interior of the oven to a temperature so hot that it incinerates the residue inside the oven. Normally, it is not a good idea to clean the interior of a self-cleaning oven with a spray cleaner; however, refer to your owner's manual or contact the manufacturer of your oven for further information.

    To clean a non-self-cleaning oven, use one of the many oven cleaners that are available at grocery and hardware stores.

    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.
