During the self-cleaning
cycle, the outside of the wall oven can
become very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave
small children unattended near the appliance.
The health of some birds is
extremely sensitive to the fumes given off
during the self-clean cycle of any wall oven.
Move birds to another well ventilated room.
DO NOT line the oven walls,
racks, bottom or any other part of the
appliance with aluminum foil. Doing so will
destroy heat distribution, produce poor
baking results and cause permanent
damage to the interior (aluminum foil will
melt to the interior surface of the oven).
DO NOT force the oven door
open. This can damage the automatic door
locking system. Use caution when opening
the door after the Self-Cleaning cycle is
completed. The oven may still be VERY

A Self-Cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above
cooking temperatures) which eliminate soils completely or reduces them
to a fine powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.
Adhere to the following
Allow the oven to cool before cleaning.
Wear rubber gloves when cleaning any exterior parts of the oven
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The woven material of the
oven door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken
not to rub, damage or remove the gasket.
DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing
so could cause damage.
Remove the searing
grill, broiler pan and broiler pan insert, all
and any aluminum
foil. These items cannot withstand
high cleaning temperatures.
This oven comes with lubricated porcelain oven racks, which can
remain in the oven during the self-clean cycle. Do not clean this
vegetable oil lubrication off the racks, it is important that the sides
of the oven racks always have a light coating of vegetable oil. To
maintain optimal rack performance, re-apply a thin layer of vegetable
oil to the sides of the rack after every self-clean cycle or when the
rack becomes difficult to slide.
Remove any excessive
in the oven cavity before
starting the Self-Cleaning cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and
a cloth. Large spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when
subjected to high temperatures.
DO NOT allow food spills with a
high sugar or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit
juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may leave a
dull spot even after cleaning.
Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven
door gasket and the small area at the front center of the oven
bottom. These areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with
soap and water.
NOTE: Prior to setting the Self-Clean cycle, any spills remaining on the
oven bottom should be removed.
[f any time when setting the oven for the Self-Cleaning feature, the oven
control continuously beeps and the display shows "dr

The oven bake and broil elements may appear to have
cooled after they have been turned OFF. The elements
may still be
hot and burns may occur if these elements are touched before they
have cooled sufficiently.
