7. If any soils remain, remove them with a non-scratch scrubbing
sponge or plastic scraper. Additional Clean cycles may be run
to help remove the stubborn soils.
IMPORTANT: Do not use oven cleaners. The use of chemicals,
including commercial oven cleaners or metal scouring pads,
may cause permanent damage to the porcelain surface of the
oven interior.
NOTES:
The range should be level to ensure that the entire surface of
the bottom of the oven cavity is covered by water at the
beginning of the Clean cycle.
For best results, use distilled or filtered water. Tap water may
leave mineral deposits on the oven bottom.
Before removing the residual water and loosened soils at the
end of the Clean cycle, insert a cloth or paper towel between
the lower edge of the oven door and the front frame to keep
water from spilling onto the front of the range and the floor.
IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and
the oven and cooktop are cool. Always follow label instructions on
cleaning products. For additional information, you can visit the
Frequently Asked Questions section of our website at
www.kitchenaid.com. In Canada, reference the Customer Service
section at www.kitchenaid.ca.
Soap, water and a soft cloth or sponge are suggested first unless
otherwise noted.

affect the finish.

difficult to remove with the Clean cycle.

walls, oven door and oven bottom for difficult soils. For best
results, moisten the pads and sponges before use.
Run an additional Clean cycle for stubborn soils.
