  1. HI gmagsny! Thanks for posting your issue today and including the model number of your range. Check back soon for a reply from an Appliance Expert. They may have a suggestion on unsticking those oven racks.

      Hello gmagsny;
      If the oven racks were left in the oven during a self-clean cycle it will cause them to stick and not slide out or in easily. You can put a little vegetable oil/cooking oil on a paper towel and wipe the two sides of the rack where they would make contact with the side rails on the oven and it will then slide easier.

      On page 20 in the Use and Care Guide it states: "Remove the ladder racks, oven racks and meat probe during
      self-cleaning. These items will be permanently damaged by the high cleaning temperatures. If the racks are not removed, the selfclean cycle will cause them to discolor and make them difficult to slide. If this occurs, coat the racks with cooking oil to make them easier to slide again."

      I hope this is helpful.
