This will help reduce smoke during
the Self-Cleaning cycle.
4. If you want the oven racks to
remain shiny, remove from the
oven and clean them by hand.
Otherwise, put oven racks on
second and fourth guides (guides
are counted from bottom to top).
After racks are cleaned in the Self-

harder to slide. See page 12.

kitchen vent during the Self-
Cleaning cycle. This will help
remove heat and odors that are
normal during the cycle.
