The trick is in the name 'self cleaning'.

Here's my answer : I have a Kenmore self cleaning oven and just used that function for the very first time and it works wonders. Here were the instructions from the manual :

To set the Controls for a Self-clean cycle :

1. Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day.

2. Push the CLEAN pad. ''---'' appears in the display.

3. Push the UP ARROW pad until ''3:00' appears in the display for a 3 hour cycle, or push the DOWN ARROW pad until ''2:00'' appears in the display for a 2 hour cycle.

4. As soon as the UP or DOWN ARROW pad is released, ''CLN'' appears in the display.

5. As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven lock will begin to close automatically and the ''LOCK'' indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the lock to close).

6. The ''LOCK'' light will glow until the cleaning cycle is completed or cancelled, and the oven temperature has cooled.

When the Self-Clean Cycle is completed :

1. The time of day or ''End'' will appear in the display window and the ''Clean'' and ''LOCK'' light will continue to glow.

2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 hour and the ''LOCK'' light has gone out, the oven door can be opened.

3. If ''END'' is in display and the ''Clean'' indicator remains on, press CLEAR OFF pad. The time of day will appear in the display.

Stopping or interrupting a self-cleaning cycle :

If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a self-cleaning cycle due to excessive smoke or fire :

1. Push the CLEAN OFF pad.

2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 hour and the ''LOCK'' light has gone out, the oven door can be opened.

3. Correct the condition which caused the smoking.

4. Restart the self-clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.

If the oven isn't clean in some places you can use a bit of Easy-Off to take the stains out.

Don't use your burners meanwhile !

Good luck with your cleaning !
