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 2 hour 30 minute clean cycle, however
the time can be changed. There are 5 levels of clean. Suggested
clean times are 2 hours 30 minutes for light soil and between
3 hours 30 minutes to 4 hours 30 minutes for average to heavy
soil. Use the following chart as a guide to determine the desired
cleaning level.
CLEANING
TOTAL CLEANING TIME
LEVEL
(includes a 30 minute cool down time)
1 (Quick)
2 hours 30 minutes
2
3 hours
3 (Regular)
3 hours 30 minutes
4
4 hours
5 (Maxi)
4 hours 30 minutes
Once the oven has completely cooled, remove ash with a damp
cloth. Do not wipe down any of the inside surfaces until the oven
has completely cooled down. Applying a cool damp cloth to the
inner door glass before it has cooled completely could result in
the glass breaking.
The oven light will not work during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
To Self-Clean:
Before self-cleaning, make sure the door is closed completely or
it will not lock and the cycle will not begin.

display.
To Delay Start Self-Clean:

General Cleaning

IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and
the oven and cooktop are cool. Always follow label instructions
on cleaning products. Soap, water and a soft cloth or sponge are
suggested first unless otherwise noted.
