Changing the Oven Light
The oven light automatically turns ON when the door is opened. The oven light may also be manually operated by pressing
pad. The oven light bulb is located at the rear of the oven and is covered with a glass shield held by a wire holder.
The glass shield must be in place whenever the oven is in use.
To replace the oven light bulb:
1. Turn electrical power off at the main source or unplug the range.
2. Press wire holder to one side to release the glass shield.
3. Replace bulb with a new 40 watt appliance bulb.
4. Replace glass shield over bulb and snap wire holder into place.
5. Turn power back on again at the main source (or plug the range back in).
6. The clock will then need to be reset. To reset, see Setting the Clock and Minute
Timer in this Use & Care Manual.
Be sure the range is unplugged and all parts are COOL before replacing oven
light. Wear a leather-faced glove for protection against possible broken glass.
General Care & Cleaning
(Cleaning Table)
How to Clean
For general cleaning, use a soft cloth, clean with mild dish detergent & water or a 50/50 solution
of vinegar & water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry & polish with a soft cloth.
Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth 1st. DO NOT spray liquids directly on the
control pad and display areas. DO NOT use large amounts of water on the control panel - excess
water on the control area may cause damage to the appliance. DO NOT use other liquid
cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or some paper towels - they will damage the finish.
Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls to OFF & remove the control knobs. To
remove, pull each knob straight off the shaft. Use the general cleaning instructions provided in the
paragraph above.
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1 solution of
clean water & ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with an ammonia-soaked paper towel
for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp cloth, then scrub with a soap-filled
scouring pad. Rinse & wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may
become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners on the range top.
Remove oven racks. See "Removing & Replacing Oven Racks" under Before Setting Oven
Controls. Use a mild, abrasive cleaner, following the cleaner's recommendations. Rinse with
clean water & let dry. After cleaning the racks, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a
cloth containing a small amount of salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the oven
rack positions).
Use soap & water to thoroughly clean the top, sides & front of the oven door. Rinse well. You
may use a glass cleaner on the outside glass of the oven door. DO NOT immerse the door in
water. DO NOT spray or allow water or the glass cleaner to enter the door vents. DO NOT
use oven cleaners, cleaning powders or any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the outside of
the oven door. DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The oven door gasket is made of a woven
material, on Self-Cleaning models, which is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not
to rub, damage or remove this gasket.
Clean stainless steel with hot soapy water & a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and a cloth.
DO NOT use cleaners with high conecentrations of chlorides or chlorines. DO NOT use harsh
scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for cleaning stainless
steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners form the surface as bluish stains may occur during
heating that cannot be removed.
