Self-Cleaning cycle.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to
the fumes given off during the Self-Cleaning cycle. Exposure to
the fumes may result in death to certain birds. Always move birds
to another closed and well-ventilated room.
Self-clean the oven before it becomes heavily soiled. Heavy soil
results in longer cleaning and more smoke.
Keep the kitchen well-ventilated during the Self-Cleaning cycle to
help get rid of heat, odors, and smoke.
Do not block the oven vent(s) during the Self-Cleaning cycle. Air
must be able to move freely. Depending on your model, see
"Oven Vent" or "Oven Vents" section.
Do not clean, rub, damage or move the oven door gasket. The
door gasket is essential for a good seal.
Prepare Oven:
Remove the broiler pan, grid, cookware and bakeware and,
on some models, the temperature probe from the oven.
Remove oven racks to keep them shiny and easy to slide.

OVEN CARE

Self-Cleaning Cycle (on some models)

How the Cycle Works
IMPORTANT: The heating and cooling of porcelain on steel in the
oven may result in discoloring, loss of gloss, hairline cracks and
popping sounds.
The Self-Cleaning cycle uses very high temperatures, burning soil
to a powdery ash.
The oven is preset for a 3 hour 30 minute clean cycle, but the
time can be changed. Suggested clean times are 2 hours
30 minutes for light soil and between 3 hours 30 minutes to
4 hours 30 minutes for average to heavy soil.
Once the oven has completely cooled, remove ash with a damp
cloth. Do not wipe down any of the inside surfaces until the oven
has completely cooled down. Applying a cool damp cloth to the
inner door glass before it has completely cooled could result in
the glass breaking.
The oven light will not work during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
On combination oven models, the upper oven will not work
during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
On double oven models only, be sure to set the correct controls
for the oven (upper or lower) you want to use.
Press the TEMP "+" or "-" arrow pad to enter a temperature
other than the one displayed.
length of time to cook.
When the stop time is reached, the oven will shut off
automatically and "End" will appear on the oven display.
If enabled, end-of-cycle tones will sound, then reminder
tones will sound every minute.
The start time is automatically calculated and displayed.
"TIMED," "DELAY" and stop time will also appear on the oven
display.
When the start time is reached, the oven will automatically
turn on. The countdown time will appear on the oven display.
OFF/CANCEL or open the oven door to clear the display
and/or stop reminder tones.
Remove any foil from the oven because it may burn or melt,
damaging the oven.
Hand clean inside door edge and the 1½" (3.8 cm) area
around the inside oven cavity frame, being certain not to
move or bend the gasket. This area does not get hot enough
during self-cleaning to remove soil. Do not let water, cleaner,
etc., enter slots on door frame. Use a damp cloth to clean this
area.
Wipe out any loose soil to reduce smoke and avoid damage.
At high temperatures, foods react with porcelain. Staining,
etching, pitting or faint white spots can result. This will not
affect cooking performance.
