Self-Clean
Oven
The
self-clean
oven
uses
temperatures
above
normal
cooking
temperatures
to automatically
clean
the entire
oven.
The separate
clean
cycle
eliminates
soil completely
or reduces
it to a gray
ash
which
is easily
wiped
up with
a damp
cloth
when
the
cycle
is complete
and
the
oven
has
cooled.
It is better
to clean
the
oven
regularly
rather
than
to wait
until
there
is a heavy
build-up
of soil
in the
oven.
It is normal
for the cooktop
of the range
to become
hot
during
a clean
cycle.
Therefore,
during
a clean
cycle,
avoid
touching
the
cooktop
area.
Avoid
contact
with
the
oven
door
and
window
as
these
areas
also
become
warm
during
a self
clean
cycle.
Preparing
for the Self-Clean
Cycle
l. Remove
oven
racks
and
any
pans,
utensils
or
the
broiler
pan
from
the
oven,
The
oven
racks
should
be washed
by hand.
If left
in the
oven
during
the
self-clean
cycle,
the
racks
will
become
permanently
discolored
and
may
not
slide
easily
after
a clean
cycle.
2. Clean
the oven
frame,
door
frame
and around
the
oven
vent
with
a non-abrasive
cleaning
agent
such
as Bon ,Mni. These
areas
are not
exposed
to cleaning
temperatures
and
should
be cleaned
to prevent
soil from baking
on during
the clean
cycle.
3, Wipe
up any
excess
grease
or spillovers
from
the
oven
bottom
to prevent
excessive
snloking
and
flare-ups
during
the
clean
cycle.
4, Wipe
up
acid
spillovers
such
as
lemon
juice,
tomato
sauce
or milk-based
sauces
and
sugary
spillovers.
Porcelain
enamel
is
acid
resistant,
not
acid
proof.
The
porcelain
finish
may
discolor
if acid
spills
are
not
wiped
up immediately.
5. Do
not
use
oven
cleaners
or
oven
liner
protective
coatings
of
any
kind
on
the
self-clean
oven
finish
or around
any part of
the oven.
6.
To prevenl
damage,
do not
clean
or rub
the
gasket
around
the front
oven frame.
The gasket
is designed
to seal
in heat
during
the
clean
cycle.
