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.

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.
