Self Cleaning
A self cleaning oven cleans itself with temperatures well
above normal cooking temperatures which eliminate soils
completely or reduces them to a fine powdered ash you can
wipe away with a damp cloth.
While the oven is in operation, the oven heats to tempera-
ture much higher than those used in normal cooking.
Sounds of metal expansion and contraction are normal.
Odor is also normal because the food soil is being removed.
Smoke may appear through the oven vent.
Adhere to the following self clean precautions:
Do not use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings
in or around any part of the oven interior.
Do not clean the oven door gasket
woven material of the oven door gasket is essential
for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub,
damage, or remove the gasket. Do not use any
cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so
could cause damage.
Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils, and
any aluminum foil. These items cannot withstand high
cleaning temperatures and will melt.
Completely remove all oven racks and any accesso-
ries. If the oven racks are not removed, they will lose
their special coating properties and no longer slide in
and out of the oven cavity easily.
Remove any excessive spills. Any spills on the oven
bottom should be wiped up and removed before
starting the self cleaning cycle. To clean, use hot,
soapy water and a cloth. Large spills can cause
heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high tempera-
Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or acid
content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit
juices, or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they
may leave a dull spot even after cleaning.
Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door liner
outside the oven door gasket, and the small area at
the front center of the oven bottom. These areas heat
sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water.
These areas are shown in white
23). The
During the self cleaning cycle, the outside of the oven can
become very hot to the touch. Do not leave small children
unattended near the appliance.
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off during the self cleaning cycle of any oven.
Move birds to another well ventilated room.
Do not force the oven door open. This can damage the
automatic door locking system. Use caution when
opening the door after the self cleaning cycle is complete.
The oven may still be very hot.
Figure 23: Clean around the oven door gasket
To avoid possible burns, use care when opening the oven
door after the self-cleaning cycle. Stand to the side of the
oven when opening the door to allow hot air or steam to
Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom, or any other
part of the oven with aluminum foil. Doing so will destroy
heat distribution, produce poor baking results, and cause
permanent damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil will
melt to the interior surface of the oven).
