How to Clean a Dacor Oven


Cleaning the oven is not likely at the top of your favorite things to do. Over time, burnt-on foods require that you take the time to clean the oven. Many ovens now include a self-cleaning feature that eliminates the need for harsh chemicals and strenuous scrubbing. Dacor offers the self-cleaning feature on its line of gas and electric ranges and wall ovens. Cleaning a Dacor oven varies slightly, depending upon the model you own, although the general process is similar.

Things You'll Need

  • Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. dish soap
  • Cloths
  • Water
  • Open the Dacor oven door and pull out the cooking racks. Remove large deposits of burnt foods from the bottom of the oven as well as loose pieces of foil.

  • Wash the porcelain areas of the door on the outside of the gasket with a cloth dipped in a half-and-half solution of vinegar and water. Rinse the area clean with a damp cloth.

  • Mix 1 tbsp. of liquid dish soap in 1 cup of water. Dip a cloth into the dish soap solution and wipe down the door gasket. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth.

  • Remove all utensils from inside the oven. If cleaning a range oven, remove all utensils from the top of the range. Close the oven door.

  • Press the "Self-Clean" button on the control panel. Some Dacor ovens have a duration that you must set. Press the "Time-Temp" button or the "Duration" button and "2," "3" or "4" key to set the time. The Dacor oven automatically has a two-hour clean time.

  • Allow 60 seconds for the "Lock" indicator to illuminate. Some Dacor ovens require pressing the "Start" button to begin the self-cleaning process.

  • Wait for one hour after the Dacor oven cleaning cycle finishes before opening the oven door. Clean the ash at the bottom of the oven with a damp cloth. Install the cooking racks back into the oven and close the door.

Tips & Warnings

  • Open windows near the oven and turn on ceiling fans to help keep down the heat and smoke generated by the self-cleaning feature.
