How to Use a Self-Cleaning Oven: 4 Quick Steps
Self-cleaning ovens bring the heat so you don’t have to spend hours scrubbing. Traditional self-cleaning cycles heat the oven between 800°F and 900°F, helping turn soil and spills to a powdery ash you can then wipe away. They utilize only heat—no chemicals—and are built to withstand high temperatures. They’re also built for safe use, but you should expect some smoke and odor from your oven. A typical cycle on a Maytag® range can take anywhere from 3.5–4 hours, while a Maytag® wall oven can take 4–6 hours.
