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

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.
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 clean time is set based on the usage of your oven; however,
the time can be changed. Clean times range from 2 hours for light
soil and between 3 hours and 4 hours for average to heavy soil.
The clean time can be set in 5-minute increments.
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 light will not work during the Self-Cleaning
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.
If an oven door is left open, "Door open clean cancelled" will
appear in the display and a signal will beep. Close the door and
press CLEAN.
NOTE: Only one oven can use the Self-Clean cycle at a time, and
24 hours must pass before the next Self-Clean can begin.

Remove any foil from the oven because it may burn or melt,
damaging the oven.
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
Wipe out any loose soil to reduce smoke and avoid damage.
