Halacha - self-clean oven
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

While it is preferable to cover the door with foil since it does not get quite as hot as the rest of the oven, it is not required according to Halacha. The door certainly gets hotter during the self-clean cycle then it ever would during baking chometz, and this is sufficient according to many Poskim. Additionally the oven door should be cleaned with some form of cleanser. However, if you don't cover the oven door, it is advised to be careful not to touch Pesach food directly to the hot oven door, but if it made contact by mistake it may still be eaten.

Yes, and it is not even customary (or practical) to cover it.
