Self-Cleaning Oven Cleaning Follow directions in your manual exactly, as oven
models and brands vary.
Pre-clean the areas not reached in the self-cleaning
cycle: the frame around the oven opening, and the edge of the door outside the gasket. NEVER clean the gasket with anything!
Use hot water and detergent or a paste of baking
soda and hot water on difficult spots; rinse well with
vinegar water to remove all residue. This prevents this soil from being baked on during the high heat of the cleaning cycle. Re-clean these areas after the cleaning cycle is used.
If your range manual recommends it, you may leave
the oven racks in for the cleaning cycle; however, they will discolor, lose their shine, and become hard to slide in and out. If you do leave them in, afterward rub the edges of the racks and of guides on oven walls with soapy-steel wool pad, wipe off, and then rub few drops of salad oil on edges for easier sliding. It's probably better to take racks out before cleaning cycle and clean them by hand.
If your range manual recommends it, you may put
burner drip bowls in oven for self-cleaning cycle;
however, high heat will permanently discolor chrome
rings--a bluish hue.
If your manual recommends it, you may put broiler
pan in during self-cleaning cycle, but wipe off all
excess grease else it may catch fire.
At end of cycle and after oven has cooled down, wipe
out small amount of fine ash left inside with a damp
NEVER use chemical oven cleaners in a self-cleaning
oven. Some residue may remain, and be changed by the high heat into compounds that etch the porcelain enamel.
