| To deactivate the self-cleaning cycle, simply press OVEN OFF. You can open the oven door when the oven has cooled down for about 1 hour.
Press Cancel or Clear / Stop to stop the cycle on ERC models. To turn off the oven on models with a mechanical timer, turn the stop button to the current time. The button should appear. Turn the oven control knob to Off and the oven temperature switch is in the cleaning position.
Lock the oven door. Let the oven cool down after the cleaning cycle. The oven will turn off automatically at the end of the cleaning cycle, but it will not be possible to open it until it has cooled down to normal cooking temperatures. Remove any ash residues with a damp cloth.
It is recommended not to leave the racks in the oven during the self-cleaning cycle. The extreme heat generated during this cycle can cause rust to form and discolor. In addition, expansion and contraction can damage the grill rails in the porcelain oven compartment.
According to Reichert, the ovens should be cleaned at least every three to six months and more often if necessary. If you don’t have a self-cleaning oven, follow these simple eco-friendly steps: Spray the oven with baking soda.
Set the self-cleaning cycle
Oven cleaner residues can emit dangerous fumes during the self-cleaning process. These can damage the internal walls and make the self-cleaning process less efficient. For the same reason, avoid using oven cleaners or abrasives for continually cleaning ovens.
Self-cleaning stoves and fireplaces What happens if you use a stove cleaner in a self-cleaning oven?
Continued use of chemical cleaners on a self-cleaning oven liner will affect and discolor the liner, which ultimately prevents the oven from being effectively cleaned with the self-cleaning cycle.
The self-cleaning cycle can be deactivated by pressing the Power Cancel button. The oven door will remain locked until the oven has cooled to a safe temperature when it is in the middle of its self-cleaning cycle.
A self-cleaning oven is an oven that uses a high temperature (around 500 degrees Celsius or 900 degrees Fahrenheit) to burn baked goods without the use of chemicals.
High-temperature and steam self-cleaning ovens can emit unpleasant odors and smoke, as well as harmful by-products such as carbon monoxide from oven ventilation during the cleaning cycle. Excessive heat build-up in the oven can also bypass a thermal fuse or burn a heating element.

CLEANING THE OVEN IN SLEEP MODE
If you are running a self-cleaning cycle, you can set the time on most stoves. For most ovens, this typically takes 3 to 4 hours. It takes about half an hour for the oven to cool down and the door to unlock. When the oven is at room temperature, the cleaning cycle is complete.
It can only last 90 minutes or up to five hours. Time in the same oven may vary depending on the setting. For example, some ovens can be set to run a short cleaning cycle for light dirt or a long cleaning cycle for heavy dirt. Most devices have a cycle that lasts at least three hours.
Household ammonia can also be used to manually clean a self-cleaning oven. Place 1/2 cup in a shallow glass or ceramic container in a cold oven overnight. To remove any residual stains, apply a non-abrasive cleaner such as Bar Keepers Friend Liquid Mild Cleaner with a clean sponge or cloth.
