How the Cycle Works
IMPORTANT: The heating and cooling of porcelain on steel in the
oven may result in discoloring, loss of gloss, hairline cracks and
popping sounds.
The Self-Cleaning cycle uses very high temperatures,
burning soil

Once the oven has completely cooled, remove ash with a damp
cloth. To avoid breaking the glass, do not apply a cool damp cloth
to the inner door glass before it has completely cooled.
To stop the self-cleaning
cycle at anytime, press CANCEL. If the
temperature is too high the oven door will remain locked and "cool"
and "locked" will be displayed.
When "LOCK" shows in the display, the door cannot be opened. To
avoid damage to the door, do not force the door open when
"LOCK" is displayed.
The oven light will not function during the self-cleaning cycle.
