Customer Question
I forgot a pan...

I forgot a pan of cookies in the oven and turned it on to self clean. It began to smoke bad and I turned the self clean off but had to wait for it to cool down before could open the door. When door opened the entire inside and door are covered with a shiny smoky hard mixture. How do I clean this off? Or do I reset the self clean cycle? I'm afraid it will really smoke bad again if I do

Contractor's Assistant: Have you tried power cycling the appliance -- unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?

How will that clean the oven

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Just need to k now how best to clean this mess out of the oven.

Run it through a self clean and that will all be gone. Wipe any big stuff off, it may smoke a little but that will all clear and come off.
