if you have a lot of grease build up, you need to manually clean the oven out BEFORE you you run self clean. It'll still be smokey, but it won't catch on fire. There is a product called EASY OFF FOR SELF CLEANING OVENS that you'll want to use to clean out the oven. Then you can start the self cleaning issue.
