Adjusting
the Oven Temperature
Controls
Does your oven seem hotter or colder than your old oven? The temperature
of your old oven may have shifted gradually
without you 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:

vent is on the top of the control panel.
The lower oven vent is just above the
lower oven door. These vents are
needed for air circulation.
Do not
block the vent. Poor baking can
result.
Optional Rotisserie
If you would like a rotisserie for your oven, you can order a kit (Part No.
RCK-79/261881) from your Whirlpool Dealer. The kit includes easy installation
instructions.
Optional Door Panel Pat (Model RB275PXV only)
If you would like to change the color of your oven door glass to white or almond,
you can order one of these kits; White (Kit No. 814069) or Almond (Kit No. 814070)

Using the Self-Cleaning Cycle
The Self-Cleaning
cycle uses very high 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-Cleaning
cycle for
soil to burn away. Use hot water
and detergent or a soapy steel
wool pad on...
l The inside
of the door.
l The frame
around the oven.
DO NOT clean the fiberglass seal.
DO NOT move it or bend it. Poor
cleaning and poor baking will
result.
2. Remove the broiler pan and any
pots and pans you may have
stored in the oven. They can’t
stand the heat.
3. Wipe out any loose soil or
5. If you want the oven racks to
remain shiny, remove from the
oven and clean by hand. Otherwise, put oven racks on second
and fourth guides (guides are
counted from bottom to top). After
racks are cleaned
in the SelfCleaning
cycle, they become
harder to slide. See chart on

Tips
Keep the kitchen well ventilated
during the Self-Cleaning
cycle to help get
rid of normal heat, odors and smoke.
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 Self-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 Self-Cleaning
cycle longer the next
time and hand clean areas noted on page 18.

The Continuous-Cleaning Lower Oven
Standard oven walls are coated with smooth porcelain. Your ContinuousCleaning
oven walls are coated with a special, rougher porcelain. A fat
spatter beads up on the smooth surface, but spreads out on the rougher
surface. The bead of fat on the smooth surface chars and turns black. The
spread-out
fat on the rough surface gradually burns away at medium to
high baking temperatures 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-duty
l&inch (45 cm] aluminum foil, or buy a foil kit (Part No. 241430)
from your Whirlpool Appliance
