Self clean oven

Want to tell you about my new GE self cleaning oven. The self cleaning feature is not near as good as the self cleaning feature on my old GE, which I have since given to Habitat For Humanity.

The heating during the self-clean cycle is controlled by temperature sensors, likely even two, so that the door locks once a lower temp. is reached and the second to allow the temp. to rise to the point of catalysation.

The sensors are not absolute nor immune to failure so the desired temperature may not be reached before the sensor and circuitry thinks it's hot enough.

The only real way to check this is via a probe inserted into the oven to monitor the level it reaches.
While I have the needed gear, this is not something everyone has at home and even appliance repair people don't have a frequent need for it.

Since your range is new and under warranty, it might be worth a call to GE customer service to report it so it is at least on record and they may offer to have it checked.

I wouldn't wait too long; GE is trying to sell the appliance division and the next owner may not have to honor warranties.

Self-cleaning feature


Check your owner's manual, but most self-cleaning ovens should not be cleaned with chemicals. The finish can be permanently damaged. You might try running the oven through the self-cleaning cycle more than once. It will take some time. Make sure the room is ventilated properly since the cleaning cycle produces a lot of heat.

Don't know how to start the self cleaning oven. Please advise.


Most service techs will advise you not to use self clean features on a oven due to excessive parts failures from the extreme heat.

I don't remember how to use the self cleaning feature


Remove everything from the inside of the oven, lock the door if your model has a latch handle that you move from left to right to lock the door, then set the oven selector switch to clean.

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.
