When the door locks in self clean mode the gasket is compressed to keep too much heat from escaping. Over time they can get stiff and not compress as well.
If you spill something on the gasket try to clean it off before cleaning the oven as this will cause discoloration or stiffness. Otherwise, there really is nothing to do to protect the gasket. If it is compressed and stiff it should be replaced. Hope this helps.

How do you clean a self-cleaning gas oven?


If it's one with pyrolytic oven coatings then you empty the oven and turn the oven to maximum for about three hours.

The linings will get hot enough to burn deposits to a light ash residue which you can then wipe off with a damp cloth when the oven has cooled down.

Some modern ovens have a self-cleaning setting on one of the controls. All it does is to automate the process and to lock the oven door until the cycle has completed.

Note that you will smell the fumes as the oven self-cleans and they can set off any smoke alarms you have. Also, if the oven is really filthy and thickly caked in grease then the pyrolysis will not be fully effective. Note that oven shelves and other metal fittings and also door glass are not pyrolytic and any deposits will get baked on, so clean those separately first. Really stubborn deposits will come off using a caustic-soda based cleaners, but you must wear suitable protective gloves, glasses and clothing and exercise extreme care when using them as caustic soda burns are far, far, worse than acid burns.

Hi lost the manual..need to start self cleaning


Hello,

An electric oven is a great oven choice because of the advanced self-cleaning feature often available on certain models. A self-cleaning oven uses high temperatures to clean crusty baking spills and splatters and free its owner from having to use harsh chemicals to clean his oven. The following 4 steps lay out how a self-cleaning oven works.

Step 1 - Setting the Self Cleaning Mode
Depending on the style and brand of oven you own, you start the self-cleaning cycle by setting the oven's operating dial to "Clean," a function that can be as simple as setting a timer knob or pushing one or two buttons.

Step 2 - Cleaning Cycle
Once you have set the self-cleaning cycle, the oven coils-both lower and upper--will begin to heat. These self-cleaning ovens are protected from high oven temperatures damage by heavy insulation installed in their walls and door during the manufacturing process.

Step 3 - Automatic Door Lock
When the oven reaches a pre-determined temperature, the lock on the oven door engages, preventing anyone from opening the door until the oven temperature has cooled.

Step 4 - Removing Residual Ashes
Once the cleaning process is completed, including cooling, you can then remove the residual ash by wiping the bottom oven surface with a damp cloth or sponge.


Hope this helpout

Thermal protection fuse has started burning out when oven self-cleans. Ran fine for years, now this has started happening. Not every time it self-cleans, but have now replaced second fuse in 2 years. Is...


Hi,

The most common reason for this is the door not sealing properly, if hot air escapes out the seal during the clean cycle it will be pulled across the thermal fuse.

The second most common cause is reduced air flow. If the blower wheel is dirty it cannot move as much air across the fuse to keep that area cool, if the vents just above and below the door are dirty and dusty they can block air flow too.

I used the self clean option and now my oven will


There is a thermal fuse inside the rear panel of the oven that frequently blows when using self clean option. This is where I would start looking.

Are there any special steps to self clean the oven?


Hi,

Please follow the steps:

Run the self-cleaning cycle for your oven as often as you need to. It reduces almost any spill to a powdery gray pile of ash that can easily be wiped away at the end of the oven's cleaning cycle using a damp cloth. Make sure you have a window open during the process, to help keep smoke from sticking to walls and your ceiling. You may need to wash down the oven door and frame with a gentle cleaner to remove soil residue. Don't scrub the rubbery gasket that seals the oven door. Just rinse it with dish soap and then water. Don't use abrasives, or oven cleaners on the interior of the oven.

Thanks

Grease between glass in door after self cleaning mode


As you can see on the diagram below, for the model in title, the door glass is sealed.

Gaskets and sealings are often not covered by regular warranty.

Call the manufacturer at the number listed on your owners manual to check if they can cover the door glass and sealing replacement.
