@hopefloats:  Have you read the instruction manual that came with your stove? (Maybe not, if you are renting)

I would just take a wad of paper towel or even newsprint and wipe up the majority of the oil before you start the cleaning cycle.

More than likely it would be fine to clean the oven as is, but there is no point in risking anything when a simple wipe will solve the problem.

@hopefloats:  I have to agree with pp I would wipe it just to make sure.

Make sure you take out the racks.  They are not designed to tolerate that high of a temp.  I just slef-cleaned mine a few weeks ago.  OPen windows because it will smell like something is burning.  It is not uncommon to see flames.
