GE Profile Oven Cleaning Instructions

The GE Profile line of ranges and ovens offers a self-cleaning feature that enables you to avoid the use of harsh chemicals and labor-intensive scrubbing. Regular use of your GE Profile oven may result in food spills and grease splatters, leaving behind a mess on the oven floor and window. The self-cleaning feature utilizes high heat to burn away any food residue and turn it to ash.


Step 1

Open any windows and turn on a fan if you have one. The self-cleaning cycle may give off smoke or fumes.

Step 2

Remove any shiny metal oven racks, pans and aluminum foil from the GE Profile oven.

Step 3

Wipe away any excess food spills from the oven floor with a damp sponge.

Step 4

Close the oven door. Press the "Self Clean" button, and select a time between three and five hours.

Step 5

Press the "Start" button to begin the self-cleaning cycle.

Step 6

Open the oven door when the cleaning cycle is complete and the GE Profile oven is cool.

Step 7

Wipe away any ash remnants with a damp sponge, and replace the oven racks.
