Hotpoint is a brand of home appliances manufactured by GE. If you own a Hotpoint range with a self-cleaning oven feature, the time it will take you to clean your oven will be much less than doing so manually. Although there are a variety of models of Hotpoint ranges with self-cleaning ovens, the basic instructions for using this feature are standard for all models. So when your Hotpoint oven needs a cleaning, let the appliance do the work for you.

Things you need

  • Rags

  • White vinegar

  • Steel-wool pad

Remove everything from the oven including racks, cookware and grill pans and grids. Shut the door to the oven once it's empty. If your oven door has a lock latch, slide the latch into the lock position.

Set the self-cleaning cycle on the oven. This will vary among models. Some will have a knob which you will turn to "Clean." Others will have a touchpad with a button labelled "Self Clean." If your oven has a touchpad, you will need to set the amount of time you want the cycle to run. Average clean time is 4 hours and 20 minutes; however, the cleaning time ranges from three to five hours for touchpad ovens. Choose the appropriate time based on how soiled the oven is. If your oven has a knob, you will not be able to adjust the time. It will automatically run for 4 hours and 20 minutes.

Allow the oven to run the entire self-cleaning cycle. Open the oven door once it has cooled down to a safe temperature. The oven will remain locked until the inside has sufficiently cooled down.

Wipe out the inside of the oven with a damp rag to remove the residue from the cleaning cycle. For tough spots, scrub with a steel-wool pad and white vinegar.
