Variable Broil Feature:
You might want to broil some foods slower than others. Broiling
can be slowed down by setting a lower temperature on the Oven Temperature Control Knob instead of “BROIL.” Using a lower temperature will
cause the broil element to turn on and off during the broiling so that the
food broils more slowly.
When the Oven Temperature Control Knob is on “BROIL.” the
Broil Element heats all the time. Set the temperature lower and It heats
some of the time. The lower the temperature setting, the shorter are the
periods of heating
NOTE: The Oven Selector must be in the “BROIL” position in
order for the Broil Element to heat

Resetting the Oven Temperature Control Knob:
Does your new oven seem hotter or colder than your old oven?
The temperatures in older ovens often shift very gradually, getting hotter
or colder without the user really noticing the change. Your new oven is
properly adlusted to provide accurate temperatures. but when compared
to your old range, the new design may give you different baking results. If
you think that the temperature setting on your range needs to be hotter or
colder. you can adjust the Temperature Control Knob by yourself.
To adjust the setting, first pull the Oven Temperature Control Knob
straight off On the back. lust across from the locking screw. are a row of
notches on the black part of the knob and one tooth on the chrome part.
To set your oven about 10 F(5’C) cooler. remove the locking
screw and move the row of notches one notch closer to “LO ‘~To set your
oven about 1O-F(5’C) warmer, move the row of notches one notch
closer to “HI ” Each notch equals about lO’F(5’C)

The oven vent
There is an oven vent under the right rear surface element. When
the oven is on, heated air will escape through it. A vent IS needed for air
circulation in the oven during baking You can cook on this surface unit
while the overt is on. A warm pan of food will stay warm on this unit while
the oven is on. It may be warm enough to melt butter. too
Do not try to save heat or energy by blocking the vent. Poor
baking can result, Plastic utensils may melt if they are over the vent
while the oven is on.

How a Continuous Cleaning Oven Works:
A standard oven has walls with a smooth porcelain enamel finish.
A Continuous Cleaning Oven also has a porcelain enamel finish with one
important difference: instead of being smooth. like glass, the walls of a
Contrnuous Cleaning Oven are a little rougher.. like the surface of a brick.
A fat spatter will form a solid drop on a smooth surface. But on the rougher
surface in a Continuous Cleaning Oven. a fat spatter spreads out to a very
thin layer
Think of the difference between a drop of water on a piece of
waxed paper and one on a paper towel. The water on the waxed paper
WIII stay together in a bead. The water on the rougher paper towel will
spread out over a larger area. This is about what happens to a fat spatter In
a Continuous Cleaning Oven. Instead of a bead of fat that turns tnto black
charred material when heated. the fat spatter spreads out. Then. when
the oven is used for baking and roasting, the fat gradually burns away.
The rougher surface returns to a presentably clean condition.
This ISa gradual process it does not happen right away. The walls
continuously clean themselves, but only when the oven is set for medium
to high temperatures during baking or roasting. The oven can be presentably clean with little or no hand cleaning.. .depending on how it is
used
The continuous cleaning process does not apply to uncoated parts
like the oven wrndow. and door lining.
Soils that are removed. _.and those that are not:
Fat spatters from meat roasting. oven frying and broiling are the
usual oven soils. They can be continuously cleaned away most of the
time.
Spillovers from pies and casseroles. sugars, and starches. and other
soils that fall to the bottom of the oven are very hard to remove. That is
why heavy-duty aluminum foil is placed on the bottom of the oven. It
helps catch these spillovers and the foil can be replaced when necessary.
I

the bottom

cleaning
Caring for your Continuous Cleaning Oven:
1. Follow trusted rectpes for baking. roasting and broiling. They
will give time. temperature and pan recommendations to help
avoid smoke. spatter and spillovers.
2. Keep heavy-duty aluminum foil on the bottom of the oven. If
foil is not used, and something spills over, it may leave a
permanent stain.
3. The oven racks should be kept clean with hot sudsy water. Use
a soapy steel-wool pad or plastic scouring pad to remove stubborn spots. Rinse well and dry with a soft cloth.
4. The oven window should also be kept clean with hot. sudsy
water. Do not use a soapy steel-wool pad on the window. Rinse
well and dry with a soft cloth.
Replacing aluminum foil on the oven bottom:
You can use the heavy-duty l&inch (45 cm) aluminum foil found
in most grocery stores Or you can order an aluminum foil kit (Part
Number 241430) from y’our Whirlpool Dealer.
1. When cuting the foil. make sure it is long enough to cover the
bottom with 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 an oven
rack )
3. Slide the foil sheet under the bake element. Make sure it is centered
and long enough to start up the sides.
4. 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
If results aren’t what you expect:
Remember. the oven keeps itself presentably clean at normal
baking temperatures. If you do very little baking, but a lot of broiling. you
may see fat spatters on the oven walls and door. This is because broiling
will add new spatters faster than old ones can be burned off. In some
cases. you may want to clean the oven by hand.
Hand-cleaning the Continuous Cleaning Oven:
1. Wash with hot. soapy water and rinse well.
2 Use a soapy steel wool pad or plastic scouring pad for more stubborn
spots.
3. Do not use commercial oven cleaners. These cleaners may collect
in the rough porcelain enamel finish The fumes from commercial
oven cleaner trapped in the porcelain enamel surface may be
harmful.
NOTE:
The upper oven door lining is chrome plated. It doesn’t have
the special porcelain enamel finish and is not continuous cleaning.
Using
the self-cleaning
lower
oven
cycle
The lower Self-Cleanrng Oven uses hrgh heat that actually burns
away oven soil, For best results and safety. read this section carefully.
Make sure you understand how everything works before you set your
oven to “CLEAN.”
Things to do before you start:
l Some areas may not be cleaned during the Self-Cleaning
cycle:
-The frame around the oven opening.
-The door. especially the part around the outside of the oven seal.
Soil on these areas will be more difficult to remove after the SelfCleaning cycle. Use hot water and detergent. or a soapy steel-wool
pad. Rinse well.
l Do not move or bend the fiberglass
oven door seal. Do not try to
clean it by hand.
l The high heat during the cleanrng cycle will discolor the racks and
take the shine off them if they are left in the oven during the SelfCleanrng cycle If you want your oven racks to stay shiny and bright.
take them out before starting the cleaning cycle. If you do clean the
racks during the cleaning cycle, read the “Specral Tips” at the end of
this section
l Don’t leave any pots or pans in the oven during cleaning. They won’t
be able to stand the high heat.
l Wipe up spillovers. borlovers and grease that hasn’t baked onto the
bottom of the oven. This will help reduce smoking during the cleaning
cycle.
l The porcelain reflector bowls may be cleaned in the oven. Put the
oven racks on the second and top rack guides. Wipe the reflector
bowls and put hue reflector bowls upside down on each rack. For best
results, they should not touch each other or the oven walls. Chrome
trim rings must not be cleaned in the oven.
11
Turn on the vent hood fan or other kitchen vents durtng the cleaning
cycle. This will help remove smoke, odor and heat that are normal
during the cycle.
l If you have a rotisserie. be sure the motor socket cover is closed.
Setting the controls to the Self- Cleaning cycle:
l
1. Set the Lower Oven Selector
Knob to “CLEAN.”
2. Set the Lower Oven Temperature Control Knob to “CLEAN.”
3. The clock and dials for start
and stop time should all have the
right time of day.
4. Push in on the Stop Time
Knob and set it ahead as many
hours as you want for the cleaning cycle. For a lightly soiled
oven, two hours ahead may be
enough. For heavy soil, three
hours ahead may be about right.
If some soil does not get removed
during the cleaning cycle, see
“Special
Tips” later in this
section.
5. Lock the oven door by moving
the Lock Lever all the way to the
right. When it is all the way over,
the Clean Light will come on. If
the Clean Light doesn’t come on,
the lever isn’t all the way over
and the cleaning cycle won’t
start.
When the clean light comes on,
the oven starts the cleaning cycle.
About 20 minutes later. the Lock
Light will come on. It will stay on
during the cleaning cycle. The
door cannot be unlocked while
the Lock Light is on.
12
6. The oven will shut off when
the preset stop time is reached,
but the oven door will stay locked
until the oven has cooled. When
the Lock Light turns off, turn the
Oven Selector Knob and Oven
Temperature
Control Knob to
“OFF.” This turns off the Clean
Light. Now, move the Lock Lever
back to the left. Do notjorce the
Lock Lever. If it doesn’t want to
move easily, wait until it does.
With the Lock Lever all the way
to the left, the oven door can be
opened.
7. When the oven has cooled off
all the way, wipe out any residue
or ashes from the bottom.
How the Self-Cleaning cycle works:
l When oven controls are set to “CLEAN.”
the oven gets much hotter
than it does for cooking This high heat causes soil on the insjde oven
usaIls to burn off. or break up and mostly disappear. While this is
happening. a special part in the oven ljent helps remove smoke. Do
not COLVI-the right-rear surface unit during the cleaning cycle.
l The chart belo\~ shows about what happens during a 2-hour SelfCleaning cycle Any time less than that shortens only the cleaning
cycle, not thti heating and cooling times
l Don’t touch the range dunng the cleaning cycle.. it will be hot.
l When the cleaning cycle 15over. you will find some fine ashes in the
oven The amount of ash depends upon the amount of soil there was
ill the oven When the oven is cool, clean up all that is left with a
damp cloth. cleanser, or a soap-filled steel-wool pad.
l Dunng the cleaning cycle. you may hear the sounds of metal heating
and cooling These are normal sounds. and a lot like those you can
heal- when tthe oxen heats for regular cooking.

Special tips:
l If the cleaning cycle doesn‘t get the oven as clean as it should
be. the ttme set for cleaning was probably not long enough.
Set the cleaning time longer next time. You can set it for more
than 3 hours, if you want.
l Plan to clean the oven before it gets too heavily soiled. Otherwise, you may notice more smoke than you would expect
coming from the oven vent. And, the cleaning cycle has to be
longer to clean a very soiled oven.
l There WIII be normal “heat odors” during the cleaning cycle.
To help get rid of them. keep the kttchen well ventilated.
@To stop the cleaning cycle after it has started:
-Turn the Stop Time Knob to the right time of day.
-Turn the Oven Selector Knob to “OFF.”
-Turn the Oven Temperature Control Knob to “OFF”
-Unlock and open the oven door when the Lock Lights turns
off.
NOTE: Do not force the Lock Lever. Wait until tt moves
easily.
l Do not use foil or other oven liners in your Self-Cleaning
Oven
l Don’t use commericial
oven cleaners in your Self-Cleantng
Oven
l If racks are left in the oven during a cleantng cycle. they WIII
lose their shine. dtscolor and be harder to slide In and out. TO
make them slide easier, polish the edges of the racks and rack
guides with a soap-filled steel wool pad. rinse well. and wipe
on a thin coatrng of salad oil.

and
caring
for vour
range
Your range is designed to be easy to clean You will usually wipe off
spills and spatters when they happen. but you will sometimes want to
clean under and behind the control knobs and surface units Thts section
will tell you how to remove those. and wahatto use when cleaning.
Removing and replacing surface unit control knobs:
1. Be sure the control knobs are set to “OFF ”
2. Pull straight out on the black knobs
