OVENCARE
Burn Hazard
Do not touch the oven during the Self-Cleaning
cycle.
Keep children away from oven during
Self-Cleaning
cycle.
Failure to follow
these instructions can result in burns.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to
the fumes given off during the Self-Cleaning
cycle. Exposure to
the fumes may result in death to certain birds. Always move birds
to another closed and well-ventilated
room.
Self-clean the oven before it becomes heavily soiled. Heavy soil
results in longer cleaning and more smoke.
Keep the kitchen well-ventilated
during the Self-Cleaning cycle to
help get rid of heat, odors, and smoke.
Do not block the oven vent(s) during the Self-Cleaning
cycle. Air
must be able to move freely. Depending on your model, see
"Oven Vent" or "Oven Vents" section.
Do not clean, rub, damage or move the oven door gasket. The
door gasket is essential for a good seal.
Prepare Oven:
Remove the broiler pan, grid, cookware and bakeware and,
on some models, the temperature probe from the oven.
Remove any foil from the oven because it may burn or melt,
damaging the oven.
Remove oven racks to keep them shiny and easy to slide.
See "General Cleaning" section for more information.
Hand clean inside door edge and the 11/2 '' (3.8 cm) area
around the inside oven cavity frame, being certain not to
move or bend the gasket. This area does not get hot enough
during self-cleaning
to remove soil. Do not let water, cleaner,
etc. enter slots on door frame. Use a damp cloth to clean this
area.
Wipe out any loose soil to reduce smoke and avoid damage.
At high temperatures,
foods react with porcelain. Staining,
etching, pitting or faint white spots can result. This will not
affect cooking performance.
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
to a powdery ash.
The oven is preset for a 3 hour 30 minute clean cycle, however
the time can be changed. Suggested clean times are 2 hours
30 minutes for light soil and between 3 hours 30 minutes and
4 hours 30 minutes for average to heavy 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.
The oven lights will not work during the Self-Cleaning
cycle.
On double oven models, only one oven can self-clean at a time. If
one oven is self-cleaning,
the other oven cannot be set or turned
on.
To Self-Clean:
Before self-cleaning,
make sure the door is closed completely
or
it will not lock and the cycle will not begin.
1. On double ovens only, press UPPER OVEN or LOWER OVEN.
The cavity symbol will flash indicating which oven was
chosen. The left cavity symbol is the upper oven, the right
cavity symbol is the lower oven.
2. Press CLEAN.
Press the number pads to set a clean time other than 3 hours
30 minutes. The clean time can be set between 2 hours
30 minutes and 4 hours 30 minutes.
