While pushing the surface unit terminal into

lift a little on the edge of
the unit nearest the receptacle.
5.
When the terminal
is pushed into the receptacle
as far as it will go, the surface unit
will fit into the reflector bowl.
Reflector bowls reflect heat back to the
utensils on the surface units. They also help
catch spills. When they are kept clean, they
reflect heat better and look new longer.
If a reflector bowl gets discolored,
some
of the utensils used may not be flat enough.
Or some may be too large for the surface
unit. In either case, some of the heat that is
meant to go into or around a utensil goes
down and heats the reflector bowl. This extra heat can discolor it.
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

HOW IT WORKS
During the self-cleaning
cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it does
870’ F (466. C). This heat breaks
for baking or broiling...approximately
up grease and soil, and burns it off.
