Do not try to save heat or energy by blocking

kit (Part No. 242905)
The large diameter of most water-bath or pressure canners combined with high heat settings for long periods of time can shorten the life
of regular surface units and cause damage to the cooktop.
If you plan to use the cooktop for canning, we recommend the
installation of a Canning Kit. Order the kit from your Whirlpool Dealer or
Tech-Care Service Company.

Your Continuous
Cleaning
FOR IMPORTANT
CANNING
Oven
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
Continuous 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
will 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 into 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 is a 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 window and oven racks.
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.
Caring for your Continuous
Cleaning Oven:
1. Follow trusted recipes 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 removt’ stubborn spots Rinse well and dry with a soft cloth.
3 The oven ulndoLu should also be kept clean with hot. sudsb
water Do not use a soapy steel-wool pad on the windoiv Rinse
well and dry with a soft cloth.
Foil should be flat on
the bottom
so should
the feet on the element.
Replacing
aluminum
foil on the oven bottom:
You can use the heavy-duty
l&inch
(45 cm) aluminum toll found
In most grocery states Or you can order an aluminum
foil kit (Part
Number 241430) frc)m your Whirlpool Dealer
1 When cutting 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 hotrrlm of the oven (You may have to remove an
oi’en rack. I
3 Slide the fool ~l.~‘t’~ under the bake element Make sure It IS centered
and long enouq to start up the sides
3 When ilou put tthe bake element back down. make sure all the feet

hot tom of the ,ven If the feet on the element are not solldly on the

If results aren’t what you expect:
Remember.
the oven keeps itself presentably
clean at normal
baking temperatures
If kou do very little baking. but a lot of brolllng. you
may see fat spatters in the oven walls and door This is because broiling
will add new spatter< faster than old ones can be burned off In some
cases. you may want !o clean the oven by hand
Hand-cleaning
the Continuous
Cleaning Oven:
1, Wash uclth hot >oapy water and rinse well.
2 Use a soapy stetll i~ool pad or plastic scouring pad for more stubborn
spots.
3 Do not use commercial
oven cleaners. These cleaners may collect
In the rough pcjrcelaln enamel finish. The fumes from commercial
oven cleaners trapped In the porcelain enamel surface may be
harmlul
NOTE:
The oven door is ventilated
to help keep the outside cooler.
This also means that the inside of the oven door does not get as
hot as the oven walls. Because of this, some hand-cleaning
of the
door may be needed. ..especially
if the oven is used mostly for
broiling or at low baking temperatures.

YOU
1. Before calling for assistance..
Performance problems often result from little things you can find
and fix yourself hrithout tools of any kind.
If nothing operates:
l Is the range plugged
into an operating outlet or wired into a live circuit
with the proper voltage’> (See Installation
Instructions.)
l Have you checked
the maln fuse or circuit-breaker
box?
If the oven will not operate:
l Is the Oven Selector
Knob turned to a setting (BAKE or BROIL)?
l Is the Oven
Temperature
Control Knob turned to a temperature
setting’
If surface units will not operate:
l Have you checketi
the main fuse or circuit-breaker
l Are surface units plugged
In all the way?
l Do the control
knobs turn)
box?
If surface-unit
Control Knob or Knobs will not turn:
l Is the spring put 11:correctly.
as shown on page 1 1 in the “Cleamng
