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.

How do i lock the self cleaning ge oven door when i put it on self clean


If you have a self cleaning oven, the door will lock automatically as the self cleaning begins. Give it some time ,it will happen. When cleaning is done it will take a while for the door to unlock. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

What type of oven cleaner can be used on the ge profile self cleaning ovens.


No chemical cleaners should be used on self cleaning ovens. Scrape the heavy soil with a plastic spatula and use the self clean feature. Once chemicals are used it will not clean satisfactorily again. Sorry..... Eric

Self cleaning oven help


There is nothing wrong with cleaning a self-cleaning oven. Now, I don't have experience with your speicific oven, but I do have experience with other self-cleaning ovens. The self-clean function simply heats the oven up really hot. The actual temperature varies but the oven will get hotter than the hottest temperature setting. What happens is that when it get that hot it actually burns up spilled food and crumbs. sometimes in mine I even see small flames. The oven usually requires you to lock it as well since the temperature will be so high. Eventually you have to clean out the burnt "ashes" which are basically the stuff you get on food if you burn it. So the answer to what happens if you clean the oven is that you get a clean oven, nothing else. It won't hurt the oven at all. As a matter of fact even if you use the self-cleaning feature you will eventually have to clean out the "burnt crumbs" and such by hand anyway. So self-cleaning oven are designed to be cleaned by hand as well. And you won't hurt it by doing so even if you did it every day.

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.
