Prepping and operating self-cleaning GE Profile oven

I need to know how to operate the self-cleaning mode of a GE Profile oven. Also would like to know if I should pre clean the inside grime before self-cleaning.

Thank you so much for your help, Ronda

Hello Ronda and Welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Gas Appliances topic.

Basically, all you should have to do is remove and items that may be stored or kepted in the baking and/or broiling compartments. Like pots or pans, etc. Also any foil or aluminum trays, etc. Nothing but the racks it came with.

Preclean the interior with a mild soap and water solution. Allow any water vapor to completely dry. Than lock the door lever closed. Set the temp control to self clean mode or select the self clean mode setting on the front control panel.

Allow the cleaning process to run through it's entire cycle. Once that's completed, allow several hours to cool down. Than once again cleanout the interior with a mild soappy water solution, if needed and allow dry.

Be aware, processes, methods and procedures may vary slightly for different makes and or models. A visit to almost any local appliance parts store will likely have a generic owners manual or the specific one for that oven.

Retail parts dealers and/or appliances parts stores can also provide some additional detailed info on that specific brand and model. Bring the make, model and serial numbers. Dealers and appliances parts stores are listed in the phone book.

Additional Suggestions:
Read the manufacturers online web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes, solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair procedures, pictorials, schematics, repair and or owners manuals which may be available online.
