Self-cleaning ovens and smoke alarms
No idea which forum is best for this one. I just bought a house that was very dirty. The weather cooled off so I decided to start the self-cleaning oven today. Judging by the looks of it, probably the first time it's ever been cleaned. I'm 1/2 hour into a 3-hour cleaning and it's already stinking up the house. I opened all the windows but it's still bad. I know the smoke alarm's going to go off any minute. I went to take the battery out just until the oven is done, but discovered it's an electric one. I have no experience with these. So... how do I disable it temporarily? If I turn off the circuit I have no power upstairs and I'm trying to clean up here. Any suggestions?
