I need to know what the Accel Clean setting means on my pre-1980 Jenn Air Model 88370 range. It came with the house and I have no manual to look things up. I am wondering if I have a self-cleaning oven or a continuous clean oven.
It's 'sort of' self cleaning. I just got done figuring it out. If your clock still works, you're supposed to set it for one hour of cooking. Turn the Selector to Accel Clean and the thermostat to 550. The oven fan should come on and the elements should heat. The door doesn't have a lock, which must explain why it only 'cleans' at 550°F.

What model Jenn-air stove do you have? In the user guide there is a section on using the self cleaning system. I do not have the guide readily available at the moment or I would send it to you! Bless You huuum
I have a similar Jenn Air oven approximate date 1982. It has a catalytic liner (colored a kind of dark charcoal with paler flecks), so it is a continuous clean oven during normal cooking.
However, it also has the Accel Clean setting on the control knob.
This increases the oven temperature to maximum and also runs the convection fan to burn off cooking residues. This allows the catalytic lining work at high efficiency, and burn off stubborn residues that are not removed at normal cooking temperature. The oven may emit smoke through the top door vents as the food residues burn off, so watch that you do not set off your smoke detector. I switch on the cooker hood fan and also put a fan in the kitchen window (blowing air out of the kitchen), to avoid setting off my kitchen smoke detector if I use Accel Clean.
