Oven Cleaning

Self-Clean or Speed Clean Cycle time length
For satisfactory results, use a 2 hour Self-Clean cycle for light soils and a 3 hour cycle for average or heavy soils.
NOTE: The kitchen area should be well ventilated using an open window, ventilation fan or exhaust hood during the Self-
Clean or Speed Clean cycle. This will help eliminate the normal odors associated with the Self-Cleaning cycles.

Adjusting the Oven Temperature

Your oven thermostat has been precisely set at the factory. This setting may differ from your previous oven, however, so your
recipe times may not give you the results you expect. If you think that the oven is cooking too hot or cool for your recipe times,
you can adjust the thermostat so that the oven cooks hotter or cooler than the temperature displayed.
To Adjust Oven Temperature:
1. Press and hold the BAKE pad for 8 seconds. The display now indicates the amount of degrees offset between the original
factory temperature setting and the current temperature setting. If the oven control has the original factory calibration, the
display will read "0".
2. The temperature can now be adjusted up or down 35°F or 19°C, in 1°F or 1°C steps by pushing and holding the UP or DOWN
ARROW pad. Adjust until the desired amount of degrees offset appears in the display. When lowering the oven temperature,
a minus sign (-) will appear before the number to indicate that the oven will be cooler by the displayed amount of degrees.
3. When you have made the desired adjustment, wait 5 seconds and the display will go back to the time of day.
Note: Oven temperature adjustment made will not change the Self-Cleaning feature temperature.
To avoid possible
burns use care when opening the
oven door after the Self-Cleaning
cycle. Stand to the side of the oven
when opening the door to allow hot
air or steam to escape.
DO NOT force the
oven door open. This can damage
the automatic door locking system.
Use caution and avoid possible burns
when opening the door after the
Self-Cleaning cycle has completed.
The oven may still be VERY HOT.
