Burn Hazard
Do not touch the oven during the Self-Cleaning
Keep children away from oven during Self-Cleaning
Do not use commercial oven cleaners in your oven.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns, or illness from inhaling
dangerous fumes.
Before you start the Self-Cleaning
cycle, make
sure you;
NOTE: DO NOT clean, move, or bend the gasket.
You may get poor cleaning, baking, and roasting.
• Hand-clean the areas shown. They do not get
hot enough during the Self-Cleaning cycle for
soil to burn away. Use hot water and detergent
or a soapy, steel-wool
pad for cleaning.
• Do not let water, cleaner, etc., enter slots on door
and frame.
• Remove the broiler pan and grid and any
being stored in the oven.
• Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This will help
reduce smoke during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
• Wipe up food spills containing sugar as soon as
possible after the oven cools down. When sugar
is heated to a high temperature
in the Self-
Cleaning cycle, the high temperature
can cause
the sugar to burn and react with the porcelain.
This can cause staining and etching, pitting, or
faint white spots.
• Remove the oven racks from the oven if you
want them to remain shiny. You can clean the
oven racks in the Self-Cleaning
cycle, but they
will become harder to slide. (See the "Cleaning
chaW' in the "Caring for Your Range" section.) If
you clean the racks in the Self-Cleaning cycle,
place them on the 2nd and 4th rack guides. (The
guides are counted from bottom to top.)
• Heat and odors are normal during the Self-
Cleaning cycle. Keep the kitchen well ventilated
by opening a window or by turning on a vent
hood or other kitchen vent during the cycle.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely
sensitive to the fumes given off during the Self-
Cleaning cycle. Move birds to another closed and
well ventilated room.
- frame
Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the
Self-Cleaning cycle to help get rid of heat, odors,
and smoke.
Clean the oven before it gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning a very soiled oven takes longer and
results in more smoke than usual.
Do not block the vent during the Self-Cleaning
cycle. Air must move freely for best cleaning results.
Remove any combustible
items, such as paper
napkins, from the storage drawer. This includes
utensils with plastic handles that can become
overheated and melt.
• Do not leave plastic utensils on the cooktop. They
may melt.
• Do not leave any foil in the oven during the
cycle. Foil could burn or melt and
damage the oven surface.
• The oven light will not work during the Self-
Cleaning cycle.
