I just cleaned my non self cleaning stove; a task I thought would be daunting. I sprayed some oven cleaner in my cold stove, closed the door and left it overnight. The next morning, everything wiped clean VERY easily. I was surprised. then, I had to try to get the oven racks back in...hilarious! I actually stopped trying for a while, and that's how I found this site. Anyway, after 2 breaks of frustrating effort to get the racks back in, I realized I only needed to FLIP THE RACK OVER! The triangles on the front sides of the rack should point up...although it seems as if it should be the opposite. I guess I should have paid attention to what they looked like before I took them out.

Hey, it was pretty funny to me!

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! LOL I was getting so frustrated trying to put the racks back in after I cleaned my oven this morning. I gave up! I googled how to replace racks and came across this site.

Oh. I just figured out my own version of this problem when I read this. (This is a real DUH moment...) The ridges (triangles) go in the front, not the back. OK, I have to go put my racks back in correctly now before I break something.

I could not put the racks in and it was driving me crazy.. SO on my racks one side is flat one is curved up..I simply pushed in the side that was curved up first to the back of oven and in they went! I am not sure if they are in properly put who cares..they are in..and I am not worried about pulling them out too far when I check food because that would rarely happen anyway right?? Hold the rack..curved side to the back..up where your fingers until the curved part has passed the silly ridges in your oven..then flatten the rack and push in..thats it job done!!

    Thank you thank you thank you. I have had a litany of baking disasters today, culminating in tipping the first viable pan of cookies out all over the oven once they'd finished. Had to remove the racks quickly to get at all the mess in the bottom of the oven before they immolated, and then, with exactly one pan's worth left of dough, I couldn't get those dang racks back in. I think I may have scraped some of my oven coating off with my bad attempts. Your ways worked. Thank you thank you thank you. My husband is laughing his head off at me. :(

  • electricfash Apr 02, 2011

    U are close...but u put them in upside down.....the curved part does go to the back but if its not sliding in easy for u then it is upside down....flip it over, keeping the curved part in the back and make sure that it is curved up and not down.

    Hope this helps (it only took me 20 min to figure this out) lol

Try starting with the bottom rack first, and make sure the rack is tilted up as far as it will go as you slide it into place.

SOURCE: self clean light blinks when you turn oven on (oven does not work)

I had this same problem with mine (still posted under unsolved) This is the simpler model with the old turn style knob and the lever you slide over to lock the door for cleaning What I think (keep in mind I know little about ovens, more about cars) is that the switch that tells the oven the door is latched is staying engaged, and this is part of the lever mechanism. I cleaned and lubed this mechanism (obviously I would guess you want to use a food safe lubricant) and then moved the lever several times with the oven on so I could see if it turned on. After a few tries the cleaning light went off and the oven light came on. No, its not really a technical answer, all indications to me where that the problem was in the switch which is part of the latch mechanism. Good luck

Have you tried unplugging it and then reapplying power after a few minutes? Sometimes a power down/up cycle will reset the logic..

Electrolux dual fuel range 316471210 self clean remove racks message displayed and cannot proceed

Hi friend, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that you are receiving a "remove racks" message on your Electrolux range. The oven racks and supports must be removed before the self-clean will initiate or the control will not allow the self-clean to turn on. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Electrolux Icon Oven self cleaning won't start- the lock button keeps flashing. Yes, the racks and rack holders are removed.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are having trouble with your Electrolux Icon oven, model# E30SO75ESS, and running the self-clean cycle. I see that the lock button keeps flashing and that you have the racks and rack holders out. I suggest following the steps below to run your self-clean cycle:

    1) Place the rack holders and the racks in your oven.

    2) Reset your appliance, by shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes.

    3) Restore power.

    4) Reset the clock, by pressing the "Clock" button then press the number "2". Enter in the time of day, and then press the "Clock" button again.

    5) Start the self-clean cycle with the racks in your range. This is to make your oven recognize that the racks are in the oven.

    6) Take the racks and rack holders out and start the self-clean cycle again.

    I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your oven status has changed successfully.

    -Best Regards-

Electrolux icon duel fuel range racks red light wont stop flashing even though I removed all racks, so oven will not start self clean cycle

Good Morning Andrea,

I see that you are having trouble with your Electrolux range, model# E30DF74GPS, and getting it to go into the self-clean cycle. I would suggest giving it a hard reset. First make sure the racks are in. Next, cut the power at the circuit breaker and leave it off for 2-3 minutes. After the time has elapsed cut the power back on. Start the self-clean cycle with the racks inside the oven. We're trying to get the oven to recognize the racks are inside. Once it states the racks are in, cancel out and take the racks out. Now, with the racks out start the self-clean cycle again. If you are still receiving the red light blinking, I suggest contacting the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. Hope this has been helpful.

-Best Regards-

Do we leave the racks in the oven while cleaning it ?


I assume you are referring to the "self-clean" function of your oven, in which case, the answer is no. All racks and the broiling pan, etc should be removed from the oven before initiating self-clean mode.

I can't give any specific instructions for the self-clean mode on your oven as you have not specified a brand or model number. If you need any further assistance, please post back with these details.

Please note: The high temperatures generated during "self-clean" have been known to cause the door locking mechanisms on many ovens to become stuck in the closed position. This often requires a service call to rectify the problem. If you are planning to use the self-clean before cooking your Christmas meal tomorrow, please bear this in mind. There is little chance of getting a service call between now and then.

Hope this helps.

Happy holidays!

    GE Monogram Trivection - self-clean cycle with oven racks in

    Hello- First off, do not use 'self clean', or as most Techs call it: "Self- Destruct".  This 'feature' cheerfully sold by the salesman destroys more oven and range components than any other failure. Now- the racks had a thin layer of grease on them when the oven tried to turn stuff inside the oven to ash.  The grease is now a hard rubbery coating on the surface of the rack.  To solve this problem, you must determine by observation, where the rack touches the sides of the oven. These contact areas need to be cleaned thoroughly with scotchbrite and a small portion of oven cleaner. Make sure you use gloves. Sliding rack in and out to 'mark' these small spots works pretty good.  Once cleaned and wiped down, they should work fine. I recommend cleaning by removing as much 'stuff' by scraping and wiping down with moist cloth.  Turn on to 450deg for 30 min.  Much safer, less costly.                                                       Please acknowledge this posted solution if helpful.  Have more info if needed-  Thanks  -Ed

    If you have the time and the energy use a paste of baking soda and a brass brush (from home improvement store) or a piece of aluminum foil. You will have to scrub for hours, but it does work!

    Electrolux Icon Oven won't self clean - "Remove Racks" displayed

    I was getting the remove rack error until I finally figured out what it wanted me to remove. When you say you removed the rack supports, do you mean just the sliding parts or the whole side metal rack support? At first I thought they were bolted in, but I read somewhere that they come out, too. Upon further investigation, I found the rack supports just slide into the side walls at 4 points. I had to use a little force to pull them out, but they came out and my oven is self-cleaning as I write this. I just thought I would share in case you or others haven't figured it out yet. Now I will just have to see how hard it is to get them back in...
