Care and Cleaning - Oven
Preparing the Oven for Self Clean
Self Cleaning the Oven
A flexible door gasket is necessary for a good seal. Do not clean, rub,
damage or move the gasket.
1. Remove all utensils and bakeware.
2. Remove oven racks. If oven racks are left in the oven during the self-clean
cycle, they will permanently lose the shiny finish and change to a dull dark fin-
ish. See Oven Cleaning Chart for proper care.
3. Wipe up any soft soil spills and grease with paper towels. Excess grease will
cause flames and smoke inside the oven during self-cleaning.
Do not hand-clean
the gasket.
Do hand-clean frame
area outside the gasket.
Do hand-clean door
area outside the gasket.
4. Review illustration below. Some areas of the oven must be cleaned by hand
before the cycle begins. Use a soapy sponge or plastic scrubber or a deter-
gent-filled S.O.S.® pad. Hand-clean the oven door edge, oven front frame
and up to 1-1/2 inches inside the frame with detergent and hot water. Do not
clean or rub the gasket on the oven. The gasket is designed to hold in heat
during the self-clean cycle. Rinse all areas thoroughly then dry.
5. Be sure oven light is turned off and the light bulbs and lens covers are in
place. Do not operate oven without lightbulb and cover in place.
Important: Do not use Commercial Oven Cleaners on the self-clean oven or any
part because they will damage the finish or part.
Our ovens feature a self-cleaning function that eliminates the manual labor
involved with cleaning your oven. During self-cleaning, the oven uses a very high
temperature to burn away food soil and grease.
It is common to see smoke and/or an occasional flame-up during the Self-
Clean cycle, depending on the content and amount of soil remaining in the
oven. If a flame persists, turn off the oven and allow it to cool before opening
the door to wipe up the excessive food soil.
In a normal Self-Clean mode, the door does not lock at the beginning of the
cycle; However, it does lock prior to reaching the high self-clean tempera-
tures. The door lock symbol will appear in the display at this point. The door
does not lock at the start of the cycle.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Do hand-clean 1 1/2 incehs from
rack guides to front of oven cavity.
