Self-Cleaning Oven A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking temperatures) which eliminate soil completely or reduce it to a fine powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.

Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:

DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings inor around any part of the self-cleaning oven. DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The woven material of the oven door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub. damage or remove the gasket. DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so could cause damage. Remove the broiler pan and insert. all utensils and any aluminum foil.

These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures• Oven racks may be left inthe oven or may be removed. If they go through the clean cycle their color will turn slightly blue and the finish will be dull. After the cycle is complete and the oven has cooled. rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of baby oil or salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack position). Remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the self cleaning cycle. To clean. use hot. soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures.

DO NOT allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk. tomatoes. sauerkraut. fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may leave a dull spot even after cleaning. Clean any soil from the oven frame. the door liner outside the oven door gasket and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. These areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water.

Baldng element may be tilted about4 or 5 inches to clean sump area

NOTE: Prior to setting the Self-Clean cycle. any spills remaining on the oven bottom should be removed.

Some models have a recessed well for the bake element. On these models. the bake element is designed to be tilted up using your hand from the front of the bake element. This will allow easier access to the oven bottom for cleaning. Be careful not to raise the element more than 4 or 5 inches from the resting position.



To Start the Self-Clean Cycle For satisfactory results use a 2 hour self-clean cycle for light soils and a 3 hour cycle for average to heavy soils.

NOTE: The kitchen area should be ventilated using an open window. ventitlation fan or exhaust hood during the first self-clean cycle• This will help eliminate the normal odors associated with the first self-clean cycle•

To Set the Controls for a Self-Clean Cycle:

DO NOT remove the hold down clip from the drip bowl.

To Clean Drip Bowls Wash in hot. soapy water or in the dishwasher.

Rinse and dry while still warm.

Hard to remove. burned on soil can be removed by soaking the drip bowls for about 20 minutes in a lightly diluted liquid cleanser or a solution of ammonia and water (1/2 cup am monia to 1gallon of water). A nylon scrubber may be used after soaking. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or steel wool. as they will scratch the surface. Always rinse with clean water and polish dry with a soft cloth.

To Replace Drip Bowls and Surface Elements

Slide the terminal end on the element through the opening in the drip bowl.

Align the element support to rest on the rim inside the drip bowl. If your drip bowl is equipped with a hold down clip. align the element support opposite the terminal end with the slot in the hold down clip. and snap into place.

After the element is positioned in the drip bowl. line up the terminal end with the terminal plug as shown.

Hold the surface element and drip bowl together as level as possible and firmly push the terminal end into the terminal plug. Make sure element terminal is seated properly into terminal plug. Make sure the surface element is level to reduce the hazard of pans sliding off the element.

To Raise the Top for Cleaning
