Self-Clean
Oven
A self-clean
oven
uses
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 wSth a
damp cloth when the cycle is complete
and the oven has
cooled.
It is better
to clean
the oven regularly
than
to wait
until there
is a heavy
build-up
of soll in the oven.
It is normal
for the cooktop,
oven door and window
to
become
hot during
a clean
cycle.
Therefore,
avoid
touching
these
areas during
a clean cycle. As the oven
heats and cools, you may hear the sounds of metal parts
expanding
and contracting.
This is nomml
and will not
damage your oven.
The first f>w times
the oven is cleaned,
some
smoke
and odor
may be detected.
This
is normal
and will
lessen
or disappear
with
use.
If the oven
is heavily
soiled,
smoke
and odor
are eommou.
During
the
cIeaning process the kitchen
should be well ventilated.
The oven x_411 automatically
begin to heat when the door
is locked and the SELF CLEAN
pad is pressed.
When
the
oven
reaches
cleaning
temperature,
the word
"LOCK"
will light
in the
display;
At this point,
the
oven
door
cannot
be manually
opened.
To prevent
damage
to the door and lock lever, do not
force
the
door
open
when
the
word
"LOCK"
is
displayed.
