Hello Cynthia,

Welcome to FixYa.

Is this the first time the un it has been set for self-clean ? Or is it the first time you have set it for self clean ?

The reason I ask is based on your post "The racks are removed. When I try to start the self cleaning feature - a message flashes in red to remove oven racks " I really don't think anything is wrong with your oven.

This is simply a reminder to remove your racks before the oven reaches the temperature ( usually above 550 ) which the door cannot be opened even by canceling the clean cycle until it cools down below 550...a safety measure.

If you allow the unit to proceed through the self clean the message will go away after a while and the cycle will continue on it's merry way.

Hope that answers your question or quells your concern. Those darn self clean ovens get so hot they will make your nice racks look like barbecue grills if left in during the cleaning, it is definitely better to be sure now than sorry later though, glad you asked.

Thank you for choosing FixYa. Let me know if you need any further assistance and good luck.

We have an Electrolux Wave Touch a Dual Fuel Range and cannot use self clean upper often feature due to flashing "remove racks" message . Have removed all racks, and ensured rear vertical metal bar is

Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I would perform a reset on your appliance which can be done by disconnecting power from your appliance for roughly ten minutes. Upon restart I would operate self-clean to see if it will allow you to do so. If your appliance will not start self-clean you could be seeing a problem with the UIB (user interface board) or EOC (electronic oven control) and I would suggest having a professional come out to properly diagnose your appliance. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Electrolux dual fuel range 316471210 self clean remove racks message displayed and cannot proceed

Hi friend, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that you are receiving a "remove racks" message on your Electrolux range. The oven racks and supports must be removed before the self-clean will initiate or the control will not allow the self-clean to turn on. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Electrolux Icon Oven self cleaning won't start- the lock button keeps flashing. Yes, the racks and rack holders are removed.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are having trouble with your Electrolux Icon oven, model# E30SO75ESS, and running the self-clean cycle. I see that the lock button keeps flashing and that you have the racks and rack holders out. I suggest following the steps below to run your self-clean cycle:

    1) Place the rack holders and the racks in your oven.

    2) Reset your appliance, by shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes.

    3) Restore power.

    4) Reset the clock, by pressing the "Clock" button then press the number "2". Enter in the time of day, and then press the "Clock" button again.

    5) Start the self-clean cycle with the racks in your range. This is to make your oven recognize that the racks are in the oven.

    6) Take the racks and rack holders out and start the self-clean cycle again.

    I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your oven status has changed successfully.

    -Best Regards-

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-

Self oven cleaner

Hi Debbie, this is AP

I understand you are having trouble getting the self-clean mode on your Electrolux ICON wall oven to start. On this model, E30EW86GSS, you must remove the rack supports in order for the self-clean mode to start. To remove the oven rack support for
a self-clean cycle, pull up the support to disengage them from the brackets. If the rack supports are not removed, the self-clean cycle won't start. If you find that this does not resolve your concern and you following the self-clean instructions precisely I would recommend contact a local authorized technician to inspect your wall oven. I you need assistance locating a technician please visit the manufacture website for additional information. I hope this information helps to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to reconnect if you have additional information regarding your question.

    I have lost my book, and need to use the self cleaning oven feature. What is the process?

    The oven should have a self cleang button, just remove the oven racks, because the heat will turn the shinny racks to a dull shine, and press the self cleaning button, it will go through the cleaning cycle, the cycle takes about 3-1/2 - 4 hours

    Electrolux Icon Oven won't self clean - "Remove Racks" displayed

    I was getting the remove rack error until I finally figured out what it wanted me to remove. When you say you removed the rack supports, do you mean just the sliding parts or the whole side metal rack support? At first I thought they were bolted in, but I read somewhere that they come out, too. Upon further investigation, I found the rack supports just slide into the side walls at 4 points. I had to use a little force to pull them out, but they came out and my oven is self-cleaning as I write this. I just thought I would share in case you or others haven't figured it out yet. Now I will just have to see how hard it is to get them back in...
