Do not touch the oven during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Keep children away from oven during Self-Cleaning cycle.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners in your oven.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns, or illness from inhaling
dangerous fumes.
B
EFORE YOU START
Before you start the Self-Cleaning cycle, make
sure you:
Hand-clean the areas shown. They do not get
hot enough during the Self-Cleaning cycle for
soil to burn away. Use hot water and detergent
or a soapy, steel-wool pad for cleaning.
NOTE: DO NOT clean, move, or bend the gasket.
You may get poor cleaning, baking, and roasting.
Do not let water, cleaner, etc., enter slots on door
and frame.
Remove the broiler pan and grid and any
cookware/bakeware being stored in the oven.
Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This will help
reduce smoke during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Wipe up food spills containing sugar as soon as
possible after the oven cools down. When sugar
is heated to a high temperature in the Self-
Cleaning cycle, the high temperature can cause
the sugar to burn and react with the porcelain.
This can cause staining and etching or pitting.
Remove the oven racks from the oven if you want
them to remain shiny. You can clean the oven
racks in the Self-Cleaning cycle, but they will
become harder to slide. (See the "Cleaning chart"
in the "Caring for Your Range" section.) If you
clean the racks in the Self-Cleaning cycle, place
them on the 2nd and 4th rack guides. (The guides
are counted from bottom to top.)
Heat and odors are normal during the Self-
Cleaning cycle. Keep the kitchen well ventilated
by opening a window or by turning on a vent
hood or other kitchen vent during the cycle.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely
sensitive to the fumes given off during the Self-
Cleaning cycle. Move birds to another closed and
well ventilated room.

TIPS:
Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the
Self-Cleaning cycle to help get rid of heat, odors,
and smoke.
Clean the oven before it gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning a very soiled oven takes longer and
results in more smoke than usual.
Do not block the vent during the Self-Cleaning
cycle. Air must move freely for best cleaning results.
Do not leave plastic utensils on the cooktop. They
may melt.
Do not leave any foil in the oven during the
Self-Cleaning cycle. Foil could burn or melt and
damage the oven surface.
The oven light will not work during the Self-
Cleaning cycle.
