    This Frigidare free standing stove belongs to a lady I take care of. It would be the first time the oven was ever cleaned. It is in like new condition. We just cannot find the owner's manual! It's possible that it is only 2 - 3 years old. There is no locking lever on the outside of it. On the inside, there is a latch. The control panel above the burners is flush. It only has burner knobs and recessed or flush buttons to push. I think it is digital? And it is electric. The cleaning cycle has never been run yet! I have never used the oven, only the burners.



    I don't know what the procedure is, nor how to start it.



    Thanks for your help!

In general, if indeed it is a self cleanig oven, hte procedure is as follows.first remove the oven racks, then wipe up any loose dirt/grease from bottom of oven. next simply press the clean button( perhaps then pushing temp up button 3:00 will appear in display.) then press start, the door should lock and the clean cycle will begin.. Its important to realize that if this is the first time its run and if its real dirty the unit will smoke and smell real funny as cycle progresses, this is normal for the the clean cycle is actually incinerating the dirt/grease from unit. no need to panic and stop it but better to open a window and let complete the cycle, the door will automatically unlock whine the unit has cooled to a ssafe temperature, then open the door and wipe out the white ash from the oven floor

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

Electrolux icon duel fuel range racks red light wont stop flashing even though I removed all racks, so oven will not start self clean cycle


Good Morning Andrea,

I see that you are having trouble with your Electrolux range, model# E30DF74GPS, and getting it to go into the self-clean cycle. I would suggest giving it a hard reset. First make sure the racks are in. Next, cut the power at the circuit breaker and leave it off for 2-3 minutes. After the time has elapsed cut the power back on. Start the self-clean cycle with the racks inside the oven. We're trying to get the oven to recognize the racks are inside. Once it states the racks are in, cancel out and take the racks out. Now, with the racks out start the self-clean cycle again. If you are still receiving the red light blinking, I suggest contacting the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. Hope this has been helpful.

-Best Regards-

Hi...I want to know if i can leave the 3 racks inside for cleaning at the same time as the oven is cleaning


It depends on the rack type. Do not leave the metal racks inside the oven during a self-clean cycle. They can be warped at the temperature of the cleaning cycle. If your oven has the porcelain-coated shelves, they can stay in the oven.

Clean large spills by hand with a non-abrasive cleanser before starting the self-clean cycle.

The manual for the JGBP90MEHBC and the JGBP90MEBBC is available from GE: http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-85131.PDF .

The manual for the older JGBP90MEA is available here: http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/Dispatcher?REQUEST=ShowPDF&FileName=49-80036.PDF .

I hope this helps.

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 need direction on how to start the clean cycle on my jenn air


CLEAN PAD
Use to set a self-clean cycle or a delayed
self-clean cycle. One press of the Clean
pad sets up an immediate clean cycle. A
second press of the Clean pad sets up a
delayed clean cycle.
• 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*. These
areas are not exposed to cleaning temperatures.
• Remove air grille.
• Remove oven racks. If racks are left in
during a clean cycle, it may impair function
and they will discolor. Turn off the
oven light and close door.
* Brand names for cleaning products are
registered trademarks of the respective
manufacturers.
TO SET FOR IMMEDIATE START:
1. Press Clean pad once.
2. Press the Auto Set pad for 3 hours of
cleaning time, press again for 4 hours
and again if 2 hours of clean time are
desired.
3. CLEANING and LOC plus the clean
time will appear in the display.
4. When the clean cycle is complete,
CLEANED will be displayed. LOC will
remain on until the oven has cooled
(approx. 1 hour).
5. When the oven is cool, LOC will no
longer be displayed and the door may be
opened.
6. Wipe out the oven interior with a damp
cloth. If soil remains it indicates the
cycle was not long enough.

TO CANCEL SELF-CLEAN:
1. Press Cancel pad.
2. If LOC is NOT displayed, open oven
door. If LOC is displayed, allow oven to
cool.

Oven racks


Hello bargarmar
Welcome

You said, Your Jen-Air stove's oven racks keep falling after the heats been on. This is scary and unsafe. Your gas range is only 2 years old.

This may be caused by the racks being left inside the range when using the self cleaning system. Which can cause the racks to become warped and or discolored.
If they are warped they may not sit even in the oven while baking and also move or change their shape
form the heat every time you use the warped racks in the oven.

If you leave the oven light on before you start the oven and watch the racks as they warm up with weight on them you will see if this is the case.
Then you will want to replace them.
Let me know what happens.

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.
