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

Using the Self-Cleaning
Cycle
The self-cleaning
cycle uses very high heat to burn away soil. 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

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.

This will help remove smoke, odor and heat that are normal during the cycle.
SPECIAL CAUTIONS:
DO NOT use commercial
oven
cleaners in your oven. Damage to
the porcelain flnlsh may occur.
DO NOT force the Lot k Lever, you
could bend or break it. The lever is
designed to stay locked until the
oven Is cool enough to safely open.
Wait until it moves freely.

2. Move the Lock Lever to the Clean
Push in and release the Self-Clean
Button. A 3-hour Self-Cleaning
cycle will be set automatically.
The display will count down the
time in minutes. The Auto Oven
Light and Self-Clean Signal Light
will stay on.
4. The Lock Light will come on when
the oven temperature
exceeds
normal baking temperatures.
The
Lock Lever must not be moved
and the door can’t be opened
when the light is on.
If a cleaning
cycle other than
3 hours is desired, push in and
hold the Bake Hours Button and
turn the Set Time Knob to the new
time up to 4 hours.
l Use 2 hours for light soil.
l Use 3 hours or more
for moderate to heavy soil.
Position. The Clean Light will come

way to the right.
NOTE: The Stop Tlme slgnal light
will flash durlng the entlre clean

After the oven Is cool, wipe off
any residue or ash with a damp
cloth. If needed, touch up spots
with a soapy steel-wool pad.
Special Tips
22
Keep the kitchen well ventilated
durlng the cleaning
cycle to help
get rid of normal heat, odors and
smoke.
Clean the oven before it gets
heavily soiled. Cleaning
a very
soiled oven takes longer and
results in more smoke than usual.
If the cleaning
cycle doesn’t get
the oven as clean as you expected, the cycle may not have
been set long enough or you
may not have prepared
the oven
properly. Set the cleaning time
longer the next tlme and hand
clean areas ncted on page 20.
Oven racks lose their shine, discolor and become harder to slide
on thelr guides when they are left
In the oven durlng the cleaning
cycle. To make them slide easier,
polish the edges of the racks with
a soapy steel-wool pad, rinse
well and wlpe on a thin coat of
salad oil.

the Self-Clean
How It Works
During the self-cleaning
cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it does for baking
or broiling...approximately
875°F (468°C). This heat breaks up grease and soil and
burns it off.
