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 ent or soapy steel-wool p”” Vll... a thn tmmn nrnl mA the oven, oar, especially IvI- clulI vuIaIusi ,, le oven seal. 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 or pans you may have stored in the oven. They can’t stand the high heat. 3. Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This will help reduce smoke duringthecleaning cycle. 4. If your oven has a rotisserie, make sure the motor socket cover is closed. 5. Put oven racks on the second and fourth guides, During the SelfCleaning Cycle they will darken and become harder to slide. See tips on page 22. If you want the oven racks to remain shiny, clean them by hand. Clean Door / Clean Frame / The porcelain reflector bowls may be cleaned in the oven. Put the oven racks on the second and fourth guides. . l Wipe the reflector bowls of loose soiled and grease. l Place 2 bowls, upside down on each rack. For best results, they should not touch each other or the oven walls. l Chrome trim rlngr must not be cleaned In the oven.
