The Seff-Cleaning
cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning
the oven
interior. Like with the other functions of your range, you operate the Self-Cleaning
cycle with the easy-
to-use controls. Please review the instructions in this section to keep your oven spotless.
How the cycle works
The Self-Cleaning
cycle ;ses very high heat to
burn away soil and grease. During the cycle, the
oven gets much hotter than it does for normal
baking or broiling. This high heat breaks up the
soil or grease and burns it away.
We recommend a 3-hour Self-Cleaning
cycle.
However, you can adjust the cycle time to the
amount of soil in your oven. You can set the cycle
anywhere between 2 and 4 hours. (See "Setting
the controls" on page 20.)
The graph at the right is representative
of a
normal, 3-hour Self-Cleaning
cycle. Note that the
heating stops when the 3-hour setting is up, but
it takes longer for the oven to cool enough to
unlock.

hot enough during the cleaning cycle for soil to

soapy steel-wool pad for cleaning.
