Sounds too good to be true, but today I decided to try it.
The oven came with the house, so I dont have the owners manual. Its an old Jenn-Aire. Say 10-12 years old.
I followed the instructions on the inside of the oven door: set the cycle to Clean, set the temperature to Clean, set the time and wait. When I set the start time, it seemed to prompt for a stop time well over an hour later. As Im still a little timid on this one, and didnt want to burn the house down, I set it for 15 minutes.
I then stood there with the fire extinguisher in one hand, and the portable telephone in the other hand in case I had to call 911.
I could see it was heating up, and I could smell that it was burning off some old yucky stuff; but when the cycle was done and I opened it up, most of the yucky stuff on the walls of the oven was still there.
My gut reaction is that I didnt let it clean for long enough.
Can anyone tell me how long their oven auto-clean runs? And I guess more importantly, does it work?
