When you invite friends and family over, you usually spend a significant amount of time in the kitchen. To keep your oven working properly when you need it most, avoid running the self-cleaning cycle too close to a big party or holiday. It can cause aggravation, as well as cost you time and money. Plan ahead by running your oven’s self-cleaning cycle one week before a big dinner. Ovens have a tendency to fail during or right after a self-cleaning cycle, leaving you, your dishes and your family out of luck. When problems arise, let appliance expert’s, like Mr. Appliance, help you and your family through your biggest meals.
