Aqua Lift self cleaning oven doesn't clean on any level. Aqua Lift self cleaning doesn't even come close to cleaning.


My question: does anyone know if an oven cleaner, like Easy Off, could be used.


If EasyOff can't be used, what does anyone recommend to clean the oven. Supposedly can't use steel brillo or harsh cleaners, but we have to be able to use something.


Huge disappointment!!!!

I assume there is no cleaning cycle using just heat? From what I have heard about AquaLift it does a decent job on the oven floor but not splatter messes on the walls. Maybe try a non-metallic scrub pad?

If you use an oven cleaner like Easy Off, I think you will ruin the interior finish of the oven. I have read that the oven may be unusable afterward. Using any type of abrasive pad will also damage the interior surface.


Consumer Reports had issues.

There is a pending class action against Whirlpool (owner of Maytag).

Other sites recommend using the cleaning feature at least once every week.

It does a good job on the floor pan, but not the sides and glass in front. You have to pour around a cup of water (check your manual) on the floor pan, then run the cleaning cycle. All it does is to create some steam or hot moisture from the water, and slightly soften some of the grease and other spots. The sooner the cycle ends, I just scrub the side walls with a wet 3-M until most of the spots are removed, then scrub the glass with the pad and a small solution of ceramic glass cleaner.

But several of you are right about not doing a very good job unless you do the scrubbing.

Do not use Easy-Off. It is lye. Highly corrosive.
Try scrubbing (3M blue, not green) with mixture of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda.

Default Sad, Sad, Sad

I am sad to say - that at this time the stove is a metal piece of junk for my family. The glass top still works, though. The bottom stove element quit a number of months ago and upon trying to get it out to replace, it is RUSTED in. So not only does the water idea to clean the stove, of course, not work, the process also causes the heating element to rust.... The $50 compensation or whatever small lawsuit payout was not worth the time to fill out the mass of paperwork and proof needed that shows we bought the stove.... But I am searching for any suits again this stove for being now mechanically useless from water rusting the parts. Christina



IF there is one out there, please share. Thank you,
