WARNING
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.
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.
Prepare Range:
Remove the broiler pan, grid, cookware and bakeware, all
cooking utensils, oven racks and aluminum foil and, on some
models, the temperature probe from the oven.
Use a damp cloth to clean inside door edge and the 1½"
(38 mm) area around the inside oven cavity frame, being certain
not to move or bend the gasket.
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.
Remove plastic items from the cooktop because they may
melt.
NOTE: The cooktop burners will not function during the self-clean
cycle.
IMPORTANT:
Oven temperature must be below 500°F (260°C) to program a
clean cycle.
Only 1 oven can be cleaned at a time.
Both oven doors will lock when either oven is running the Self-
Cleaning cycle.
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.
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 cycle.

RANGE CARE

Self-Cleaning Cycle
To stop the Self-Cleaning cycle at anytime, press CANCEL UPPER
or CANCEL LOWER. If the temperature is too high, the oven doors
will remain locked.
When "LOCK" shows in the display, the doors of the oven cannot
be opened. To avoid damage to the doors, do not force the doors
open when "LOCK" is displayed.
Before self-cleaning, make sure the doors are completely closed or
the doors will not lock and the Self-Cleaning cycle will not begin.
NOTE: Only one oven can use the Self-Clean cycle at a time, and
12 hours must pass before the next Self-Clean can begin.
The oven is preset for a 3-hour clean cycle; however, the time can
be changed. Suggested clean times are 2 hours for light soil and
between 3 hours and 4 hours for average to heavy soil.
