Care & Cleaning
Self-Clean Oven
• It is normal for parts of the range to become hot during a
self-clean cycle.
• To prevent damage to oven door, do not attempt to open
the door when LOCK is displayed.
• Avoid touching cooktop, door, window or oven vent area
during a clean cycle.
• Do not use commercial oven cleaners on the oven finish
or around any part of the oven. They will damage the
finish or parts.
The self-clean cycle uses above-normal cooking temperatures
to automatically clean the oven interior.
It is normal for flare-ups, smoking, or flaming to occur during
cleaning if the oven is heavily soiled. It is better to clean the
oven regularly rather than to wait until there is a heavy build-
up of soil in the oven.
During the cleaning process, the kitchen should be well
ventilated to get rid of normal odors associated with cleaning.
Before Self-Cleaning
1. Turn off the oven light before cleaning. The light may burn
out during the clean cycle.
2. Remove broiler pan, all pans, and oven racks from the
oven. The oven racks will discolor and may not slide easily
after a self-clean cycle if they are not removed.
3. Clean oven frame, door frame, area outside of gasket, and
around the opening in the door gasket with a nonabrasive
cleaner such as Bon Ami* or detergent and water. The
self-cleaning process does not clean these areas. They
should be cleaned to prevent soil from baking on during
the clean cycle. (The gasket is the
seal around the oven door and
4. To prevent damage, do not clean or
rub the gasket around the oven
door. The gasket is designed to
seal in heat during the clean cycle.
5. Wipe up excess grease or spillovers from the oven bottom.
This prevents excessive smoking, flare-ups or flaming
during the clean cycle.
6. Wipe up sugary and acidic spillovers such as sweet
potatoes, tomato, or milk-based sauces. Porcelain enamel
is acid-resistant, not acid-proof. The porcelain finish may
discolor if acidic spills are not wiped up before a self-clean
