of your old oven may have shifted gradually
without your noticing the change.
Your new oven is properly adjusted to provide accurate temperatures.
But when
comparing
to your old oven, the new design may give you different results,
If after using the oven for a period of time, you are not satisfied with the
temperature
settings, they can be adjusted by following these steps:

1. Pull
one or both of the Oven Temperature Control Knobs straight off.

Using the Self-Cleaning
Cycle
The self-cleaning
cycle uses very hlgh heat to burn away soil. Before you start,
make sure you understand
exactly how to use the cycle safely.
Before You Start
1. Clean the shaded
areas by hand.
They do not get hot enough during the Self-Clean cycle for soil to
burn away. Use hot water and
detergent or a soapy steel-wool
pad on...
l the frame
around the oven.
l the inside
of the door, especially
the part outside the oven seal.
DO NOT clean the fiberglass
seal.
DO NOT move It or bend It. Poor
cleaning
and poor baklng will result.
2. Remove the broiler pan and any
pots or pans you may have stored
in the oven. They can’t stand the
high heat.
3.
Wipe out any loose soil or grease.
This will help reduce smoke duringthecleaningcycle.
4. Put oven racks on the second and
fourth guides (guides are counted
from bottom to top). During the
Self-Cleaning
Cycle they
become harder to slide. See tips

Special Tips
Keep the kitchen well aired during
the cleaning
cycle to help get rid of
normal heat odors and smoke.
20
Clean the upper oven before it gets
heavily soiled. Cleaning
a very
soiled oven takes longer and results
in more smoke than usual.
If the cleaning
cycle doesn’t get the
upper oven as clean as you
expected,
the cycle may not have
been set long enough or you may
not have prepared
the oven properly. Set the cleaning
time longer the
next time and hand clean areas
noted on page 18.
bven racks lose their shine, discolor
and become harder to slide on their
guides when they are left in the
upper oven during the cleaning
cycle. To make them slide easier, polish
the edges of the racks and rack
guides with a soapy steel-wool pad,
rinse well, and wipe on a thin coat of
salad oil.
How It Works
During the self-cleaning
cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it does for baking
or broiling...approximately
875°F (468°C). This heat breaks up grease and soil
and burns it off.
The graph shows approximate
temperatures
and times during a self-cleaning
cycle for 3 hours.

STOP
Notice that the heating stops when the 3-hour setting is up, but that it takes longer
for the oven to cool down enough to unlock.
The Continuous-Cleaning
Lower Oven
Standard oven walls are coated with smooth porcelain-enamel.
Your continuous-cleaning
oven walls are coated with a special, rougher porcelain-enamel.
A fat spatter beads up on the smooth surface, but spreads out on the rougher
surface. The bead of fat chars and turns black. The spread-out
fat gradually
burns away at medium to high baklng temperatures
(350”-475”F, 176”-231°C)
so the oven can return to a presentably
clean condition.
Using Foil
Using foil on the oven bottom is recommended
to catch sugar and starchy
spills from pies and casseroles. It must be used properly. Cut foil from a roll of
heavy-dutyl8-inch
(45 cm] aluminum foil, or buy a foil kit (Part No. 241430)
from your Whirlpool Appliance
dealer.
1.
Lift the cool bake element slightly
to lift the feet off the oven
bottom.
2. Slide the foil under the bake
element. Make sure the foil is
centered, long enough to start up
both sides and without wrinkles.
For proper baking, lower the
bake element so all feet rest
solldly on the foil.
CAUTION: Do not let toll touch the bake element. It could damage the
element. Make sure foil Is flat on the oven bottom and away tram the
bake element.

If you need service or assistance,
we suggest you follow these five steps:
Performance
problems
often result
from little things you can find and fix
yourself without tools of any kind.
If nothing operates:
l Is the oven
wired into a live circuit
with the proper voltage?
(See “lnstallation Instructions:‘)
l Have
you checked
your home’s
main fuses or circuit breaker box?
If the upper oven will not operate:
l Is the Upper
Oven Selector turned to
a setting
(BAKE or BROIL, but not
TIMED BAKE)?
l Is the Upper
Oven Temperature
Control turned to a temperature
setting?
If the lower oven will not operate:
l Is the Lower Oven Temperature
Control turned to a temperature
setting?
If the self-cleaning
cycle will not
operate
on upper oven:
l Are the
Upper Oven Selector and
the Upper Oven Temperature
Control set on CLEAN?
l Does the electronic
clock show the
correct time of day?
l Did
you push the Self-Cleaning
Button?
If sol1 Is vlslble
on contlnuouscleaning
lower oven flnlsh:
l The
special
finish is designed
to
gradually
reduce oven sol1 during
normal baking or roasting. It is not
designed
to keep your oven spotless, only presentably
clean.
l If you broil
often, you may see oven
soil.
l The door
is cooler
than the oven
walls. Soil will be more visible on the
door than other areas in the oven.
See page23for
how to clean,
l Sugar
and starchy spills may leave
stains. See page 23 for hand cleaning tips. Keep toll on oven bottom to
catch these spills.
26
If cooking
results are not what you
expected:
. Is the oven level?
l Are you using
pans recommended
in the Cooking
Guide?
l If baking,
have you allowed I% to 2
inches (4-5 cm) on all sides of the
pans for air circulation?
l Have you preheated
the oven as the
recipe calls for?
l Are the pans the size called
for in the
recipe?
l Are
you following
a tested recipe
from a reliable source?
See the Cooklng Guide for more information on cooking
problems
and
how to solve them.
