Prop up the top with support rod. reflector bowls and surface units: Be sure the surface unit controls are on “OFF.” Put the reflector bowls back into their places. Make sure you can see the plug-ins (receptacles) for the surface units through the square hole in the side of each bowl. Hold the surface unit level with the prongs (terminals) pointing at the plug-in With the prongs started in the plug-in, start pushing in on the surface unit. At the same time. lift a little on the side of the surface unit that’s by the plug-in. Make sure the surface-unit prongs are pushed into the plug-in as far as they will go. The surface unit should fit into the reflector bowl and be level cleaning with aluminum foil: Oven cleaning can be a chore when spillovers bake onto the bottom of the oven. Use aluminum foil so you can just throw it away with the spillovers. You can use the heavy-duty 18.inch (45 cm) aluminum foil found in most grocery stores. Or you can order an aluminum foil kit (Part Number 241430) from wour Whirlpool Dealer. 1 When cutting the foil, make sure it is long enough to cover the bottom wtth enough left over to start up both sides. 2. Make sure the bake element is cool. Lift it far enough to raise its feet from the bottom of the oven (You may have to remove the oven rack. ) Slide the foil sheet under the bake element. Make sure it 1s centered and long enough to start up the sides When you put the bake element back down, make sure all the feet rest solidly on the foil and that the foil is smoothed out across the bottom of the oven If the feet on the element are not solidly on the foil. the oven may not bake properly Cleaning under the cooktop: To clean the area under the cooktop. lift the front of the cooktop at the center. Raise the swing-up rod to hold it. (Be sure the tip of the rod is in the notch in the cooktop.) Use warmsoapy water and a sponge or cloth. Scouring powders or any other abrasive cleaner may harm porcelainenamel finishes and can scratch chrome. Be careful not to raise the cooktop so high that it touches the control console. And don’t drop it. Dropping the cooktop can chip or crack a hard porcelain ftnish. or damage side panels and surface unrts. Removing the oven door: Pull straight with angle of part-open the door. Removing the oven door may make it easier to clean the oven. To remove the door, ftrst open it to the first stop (about 4 inches or 10 cm). Take hold of both sides of the door near the top, then lift it at the same angle it is in. With the door off, you will notice how the ends of the htnges slide Into slots at the bottom corners of the door. To put the door back on, fit both bottom corners of the door over the ends of the hinges. Push the door down evenly, so neither corner gets ahead of the other. When it reaches the bottom, you can close the door. A safety latch will hold the door open until it is on correctly. Push down 10 evenly.‘ Removing the outer oven window: --.
