If it is self cleaning, how do you do it? And how do you know if it is a self cleaning oven?

Look for a button or knob that is labeled CLEAN or SELF CLEAN. Press it.

Some stoves also have a handle at the top of the oven door that you use to lock the door during cleaning.

Just a comment.

I have had several stoves with self cleaning ovens, both gas and electric. They never get the glass window in the door clean.

No button or knob, guess it isn't self cleaning. I had a hunch it wasn't, we bought a good one but the cheapest in their line. Works great and all, just a basic gas stove.
So I guess for now it stays a 'DW cleaning' stove, LOL.

Our GE electric oven has a double glass door and it is impossible to clean in between the glass where grease has been accumulating. I'm not happy about that at all, lousy design IMO. Otherwise the oven has been great.

Ditto.

Also, oven cleaner works great on glass fireplace doors. Gets the crud right off. Follow up with some glass cleaner.

Around here, we have a product called "Mean Green" that's sold at the Dollar Stores that will clean the grease off. Just spray it on the glass and let it set a few minutes. Scrub with a brush and watch the grease melt off. It's great stuff. Other discount stores have other assorted "Green" cleaners that will do it, too. Or go for the very expensive "409"...it's basically the same thing.

I emailed the manufacturer of my stove and was told to use only warm water with vinegar on the inside glass. Vinegar seems to be the answer to a lot of things.

Essiebunny, if that doesn't work, try a paste of borax, or dishwasher liquid and rub gently, don't let dry, then wipe clean.
