How to Remove Packaging Tape
To assure no damage is done to the finish of the product, the safest way to
remove adhesive left from packaging tape on new appliances is an
application of a household liquid dishwashing detergent, mineral oil or
cooking oil. Apply with a soft cloth and allow to soak. Wipe dry and then
apply an appliance polish to thoroughly clean and protect the surface.
NOTE: The plastic tape must be removed from the chrome trim on the
oven parts. It cannot be removed if it is baked on.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Read all instructions before using this appliance.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
• The California Safe Drinking Water and
Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of
California to publish a list of substances known to
the state to cause birth defects or other reproductive
harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of
potential exposure to such substances.
• The fiberglass insulation in self-cleaning ovens
gives off a very small amount of carbon
monoxide during the cleaning cycle.
Exposure can be minimized by venting with an
open window or using a ventilation fan or hood.
When using electrical appliances, basic
safety precautions should be followed, including
the following:
• Have the installer show you the location of the
circuit breaker or fuse. Mark it for easy
reference.
• Use this appliance only for its intended use
as described in this guide.
• Be sure your appliance is properly installed and
grounded by a qualified technician in accordance
with the provided installation instructions.
• Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of
your oven unless it is specifically recommended
in this guide. All other servicing should be
referred to a qualified technician.
• Before performing any service, DISCONNECT
THE OVEN POWER SUPPLY AT THE
HOUSEHOLD DISTRIBUTION PANEL
BY REMOVING THE FUSE OR SWITCHING
OFF THE CIRCUIT BREAKER.
• Be sure the oven is securely installed in a
cabinet that is firmly attached to the house
structure. Never allow anyone to climb sit,
stand or hang on the oven door.
• Do not leave children alone—children should
not be left alone or unattended in an area where an
appliance is in use. They should never be allowed
to sit or stand on any part of the appliance.
• Teach children not to play with the controls or
any other part of the oven.
• For your safety, never use your appliance for
warming or heating the room.
4
• Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on
the door. They could damage the oven or cause
severe personal injury.
• CAUTION: ITEMS OF INTEREST TO
CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE STORED IN
CABINETS ABOVE AN OVEN. CHILDREN
CLIMBING ON THE OVEN TO REACH
ITEMS COULD BE SERIOUSLY INJURED.
• Do not store flammable materials in an oven.
• Never wear loose-fitting or hanging garments
while using the appliance. Be careful when
reaching for items stored in cabinets over the
oven. Flammable material could be ignited if
brought in contact with hot heating elements and
may cause severe burns.
• Use only dry pot holders—moist or
damp pot holders on hot surfaces may
result in burns from steam. Do not let
pot holders touch hot heating elements. Do not
use a towel or other bulky cloth. Such cloths can
catch fire on a hot heating element.
• DO NOT STORE OR USE COMBUSTIBLE
MATERIALS, GASOLINE OR OTHER
FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND LIQUIDS IN
THE VICINITY OF THIS OR ANY OTHER
APPLIANCE.
• Always keep dish towels, dish cloths, pot
holders and other linens a safe distance from
your oven.
• Always keep wooden and plastic utensils
and canned food a safe distance away from
your oven.
• Always keep combustible wall coverings,
curtains or drapes a safe distance from
your oven.
• Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the oven.
• Do not use water on grease fires.
Smother fire or flame or use a
multi-purpose dry chemical or
foam-type fire extinguisher.
Flame in the oven can be smothered completely by
closing the oven door and turning the oven off or by
using a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type
fire extinguisher.
• Do not touch the heating elements or the
interior surface of the oven. These surfaces may
be hot enough to burn even though they are dark
in color. During and after use, do not touch, or let
clothing or other flammable materials contact any
interior area of the oven; allow sufficient time for
cooling first.
Potentially hot surfaces include the oven vent
opening, surfaces near the opening, crevices
around the oven door, the edges of the door
window and metal trim parts above the door.
Remember: The inside surface of the oven may
be hot when the door is opened.
• When cooking pork, follow the directions
exactly and always cook the meat to an internal
temperature of at least 170°F. This assures that, in
the remote possibility that trichina may be present
in the meat, it will be killed and the meat will be
safe to eat.
Oven
• Stand away from oven when opening the door.
The hot air or steam which escapes can cause
burns to hands, face and/or eyes.
• Do not heat unopened food containers in the
oven. Pressure could build up and the container
could burst, causing an injury.
• Keep the oven vent ducts unobstructed.
• Keep the oven free from grease
buildup.
• Place the oven shelf in the desired position
while the oven is cool. If the shelves must be
handled when hot, do not let pot holder contact
the heating elements.
• Pulling out the shelf to the stop locks is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also a
precaution against burns from touching hot
surfaces of the door or oven walls.
• When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
• Do not use your oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch fire.
• Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in an oven can ignite.
• Do not leave paper products, cooking utensils
or food in the oven when not in use.
• Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven
bottom, except as suggested in this guide.
Improper installation of aluminum foil may
result in a risk of electric shock or fire.
• After broiling, always take the broiler pan out
of the oven and clean it. Leftover grease in the
broiler pan can catch fire next time you use the pan.
• Never leave the oven door open when you are
not watching the oven.
• Never leave jars or cans of fat drippings in or
near your oven.
• Clean only parts listed in this Use and
Care Guide.
Self-Cleaning Oven
• Do not clean the oven door gasket. The door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be
taken not to rub, damage or move the gasket.
• Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial oven
cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any
kind should be used in or around any part of the
oven. Residue from oven cleaners will damage
the inside of the oven when the self-clean cycle
is used.
• Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the broiler
pan, grid and other cookware.
• Be sure to wipe up excess spillage before
starting the self-cleaning operation.
• If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions, turn
the oven off and disconnect the power supply.
Have it serviced by a qualified technician.

USING YOUR OVEN
Before Using Your Oven
1. Look at the controls. Be sure you understand how to
set them properly.
2. Check the inside of the oven. Look at the shelves.
Take a practice run at removing and replacing them
properly to give sure, sturdy support.
3. Read over the information and tips that follow.
4. Keep this guide handy so you can refer to it,
especially during the first weeks of using your
new oven.
NOTE:
• You may notice a “burning” or “oily” smell the first
few times you turn your oven on. This is normal in a
new oven and will disappear in time. To speed the
process, set a self-clean cycle for 4 hours. See the
Operating the Self-Cleaning Oven section.
• A cooling fan may automatically turn on and off to
cool internal parts. This is normal, and the fan may
continue to run even after the oven is turned off.
Shelf Positions
The oven has four shelf supports identified in this
illustration as A (bottom), B, C, and D (top).
See the baking section for shelf placement
suggestions.
D
C
B
A
Oven Shelves
The shelves are designed with stop-locks so that,
when placed correctly on the shelf supports, they
will stop before coming completely out of the oven,
and will not tilt when removing food from or
placing food on them.
When placing cookware on a shelf, pull the shelf out
to the bump on the shelf support. Place the cookware
on the shelf, then slide the shelf back into the oven.
This will eliminate reaching into the hot oven.
To remove the shelf from the oven, pull the shelf
toward you, tilt the front end upward and pull the
shelf out.
To replace, place the shelf on the shelf support with
the stop-locks (curved extension of the shelf) facing
up and toward the rear of the oven. Tilt up the front
and push the shelf toward the back of the oven until it
goes past the bump on the shelf support. Then lower
the front of the shelf and push it all the way back.

BAKING
Your oven temperature is controlled very accurately using an oven control
system. It is recommended that you operate the oven for a number of weeks
to become familiar with your new oven’s performance. If you think an
adjustment is necessary, see the Adjust the Oven Thermostat section. It lists
easy Do It Yourself instructions on how to adjust the thermostat.
How to Set Your Oven for Baking
To avoid possible burns, place shelves in the correct
position before you turn the oven on.
1. Press BAKE.
BAKE

OFF
2. Press the number pads to set the oven
temperature.
3. Press START. When the oven starts to
heat the changing temperature will be in
the display. (The display starts changing
once the temperature reaches 100°F.)
4. Press CLEAR/OFF when baking is
finished.
NOTE:
• A cooling fan may automatically turn on and off to
cool internal parts. This is normal, and the fan may
continue to run even after the oven is turned off.
To change the oven temperature during the Bake
cycle, press BAKE and set the new temperature.

BAKING
(continued)
Oven Shelves
Arrange the oven
shelf or shelves in
the desired locations
while the oven is
cool. The correct
shelf position
depends on the kind
of food and the
browning desired.
As a general rule,
place most foods in
the middle of the oven, on either shelf position
B or C. See the chart for suggested shelf positions.

Preheating
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it. Preheat
means bringing the oven up to the specified
temperature before putting the food in the oven.
To preheat, set the oven at the correct temperature—
selecting a higher temperature does not shorten
preheat time.
Preheating is necessary for good results when baking
cakes, cookies, pastry and breads. For most casseroles
and roasts, preheating is not necessary. For ovens
without a preheat indicator light or tone, preheat 10
minutes. After the oven is preheated, place the food in
the oven as quickly as possible to prevent heat from
escaping.
Baking Pans
Pan Placement
Use the proper baking pan. The type of finish on the
pan determines the amount of browning that will
occur.
• Dark, rough or dull pans absorb heat resulting in a
browner, crisper crust. Use this type for pies.
• Shiny, bright and smooth pans reflect heat, resulting
in a lighter, more delicate browning. Cakes and
cookies require this type of pan.
• Glass baking dishes also absorb heat. When baking
in glass baking dishes, the temperature may need to
be reduced by 25°F.
• If you are using dark non-stick pans, you may find
that you need to reduce the oven temperature 25°F.
to prevent over-browning.
For even cooking and proper browning, there must be
enough room for air circulation in the oven. Baking
results will be better if baking pans are centered as
much as possible rather than being placed to the front
or to the back of the oven.
Pans should not touch each other or the walls of the
oven. Allow 1- to 11⁄2-inch space between pans as well
as from the back of the oven, the door and the sides.
If you need to use two shelves, stagger the pans so
one is not directly above the other.

Cookies
When baking cookies, flat cookie sheets (without
sides) produce better-looking cookies. Cookies baked
in a jelly roll pan (short sides all around) may have
darker edges and pale or light browning may occur.
Do not use a cookie sheet so large that it touches the
walls or the door of the oven. Never entirely cover a
shelf with a large cookie sheet.
For best results during baking, use only one cookie
sheet in the oven at a time.
Pies
Cakes
For best results, bake pies in dark, rough or dull pans
to produce a browner, crisper crust. Frozen pies in foil
pans should be placed on an aluminum cookie sheet
for baking since the shiny foil pan reflects heat away
from the pie crust; the cookie sheet helps retain it.
When baking cakes, warped or bent pans will cause
uneven baking results and poorly shaped products.
A cake baked in a pan larger than the recipe
recommends will usually be crisper, thinner and drier
than it should be. If baked in a pan smaller than
recommended, it may be undercooked and batter may
overflow. Check the recipe to make sure the pan size
used is the one recommended.
Aluminum Foil
Never entirely cover a shelf with aluminum foil.
This will disturb the heat circulation and result in poor
baking. A smaller sheet of foil may be used to catch a
spillover by placing it on a lower shelf several inches
below the food.
Don’t Peek
Set the timer for the estimated cooking time and do
not open the door to look at your food. Most recipes
provide minimum and maximum baking times such
as “bake 30-40 minutes.”
DO NOT open the door to check until the
minimum time. Opening the oven door frequently
during cooking allows heat to escape and makes
baking times longer. Your baking results may also
be affected.

ADJUST THE OVEN THERMOSTAT—
DO IT YOURSELF!
You may find that your new oven cooks differently
than the one it replaced. We recommend that you
use your new oven for a few weeks to become more
familiar with it, following the times given in your
recipes as a guide.
If you think your new oven is too hot or too cool,
you can adjust the thermostat yourself. If you think
it is too hot, adjust the thermostat to make it cooler. If
you think it is too cool, adjust the thermostat to make
it hotter.
We do not recommend the use of inexpensive
thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores,
to check the temperature setting of your new oven.
These thermometers may vary 20–40 degrees.
To Adjust the Thermostat:
1. Press the upper oven BAKE and
BROIL
BAKE
BROIL HI/LO at the same time

you have completed step 1
follow the steps below pressing
the upper or lower oven pads
depending on which oven
thermostat you want to adjust.
2. Press BAKE. A two digit
BAKE
number shows in the display.
Press BAKE once to increase
(+) the oven temperature, or
twice to decrease (-).
3. The oven temperature can be
adjusted up to (+) 35°F. hotter
or (-) 35°F. cooler. Press the
number pads the same way you
read them. For example, to
change the oven temperature
15°F., press 1 and 5.

4. When you have made the
adjustment, press START to
go back to the time of day
display. Use your oven as
you would normally.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling
or self-cleaning temperatures. It will be retained in
memory after a power failure.

ROASTING
Most meats continue to cook slightly after being
removed from the oven. The internal temperature
will rise about 5° to 10°F. during the recommended
standing time of 10 to 20 minutes. This allows
roasts to firm up and makes them easier to carve.
To compensate for this rise in temperature, you may
want to remove the roast sooner (at 5° to 10°F. less
than the temperature in the Roasting Guide).
Remember that food will continue to cook in the hot
oven and therefore should be removed when the
desired internal temperature has been reached.
Roasting is cooking by dry heat. Tender meat or
poultry can be roasted uncovered in your oven.
Roasting temperatures, which should be low and
steady, keep spattering to a minimum.
Roasting is really a baking procedure used for meats.
Therefore, the oven controls are set for Baking or
Timed Baking. (You may hear a slight clicking sound,
indicating the oven is working properly.) Timed
Baking will turn the oven on and off automatically.
How to Set Your Oven for Roasting
1. Place the shelf in A or B position. No preheating
is necessary.
2. Check the weight of the
meat. Place the meat
fat side up, or poultry
breast side up, on
roasting grid in a
shallow pan. The
melting fat will baste
the meat. Select a pan
as close to the size of
the meat as possible.
(The broiler pan with grid is a good pan for this.)
3. Press BAKE.

6. Press CLEAR/OFF when roasting
is finished.

Use of Aluminum Foil
You can use aluminum foil to line the broiler pan.
This makes clean-up easier when using the pan for
marinating, cooking with fruits, cooking heavily
cured meats or basting food during cooking. Press
the foil tightly around the inside of the pan.
19
ROASTING WITH THE PROBE
See the Roasting Guide.
Correct Placement of the Temperature Probe
A temperature probe has been provided for use in your
new oven. This probe is designed to withstand high
temperatures. Temperature probes provided with other
products, such as those used for microwave ovens,
may not be designed to withstand high temperatures.
Use of probes other than the one provided with this
product may result in damage to the probe.
Never leave your probe inside the oven during a
self-cleaning cycle.
For many foods, especially roasts and poultry, internal
food temperature is the best test for doneness. The
temperature probe takes the guesswork out of roasting
by cooking foods to the exact doneness you want.
When the internal temperature of the food reaches the
temperature you set, the oven automatically shuts off.
The temperature probe has a skewer-like probe at
one end and a plug at the other end that goes into the
outlet in the oven.
Use the handles of the probe and plug when
inserting and removing them from the meat and
the outlet in the oven. Do not use tongs to pull on the
cable when removing the probe—they might damage
it. TO AVOID BREAKING THE PROBE, MAKE
SURE FOOD IS COMPLETELY DEFROSTED
BEFORE INSERTING.
After preparing the meat and placing it on a trivet or
on the broiler pan grid, follow these steps for proper
probe placement.
1. Lay the probe on the
outside of the meat
along the top or side and
mark with your finger
where the edge of the
meat comes to on the
probe. Point should rest
in the center of the
thickest meaty part of
the roast.
2. Insert the probe into
the meat up to the point
marked off with your
finger. It should not
touch bone, fat or
gristle. No more than
two inches of the
probe, not counting
the handle, should be
left exposed outside
the meat.
Ham or Lamb
For roasts with no bone, insert the
probe into the meatiest part of the
roast. For bone-in ham or lamb,
insert the probe into the center of
the lowest large muscle or joint.

parallel to the backbone.
Poultry
Insert the probe into the meatiest
part of the inner thigh from
below and parallel to the leg
of a whole turkey.
How to Set the Oven When Using the Temperature Probe

ROASTING
Questions and Answers
Q. Is it necessary to check for doneness with a
meat thermometer?
A. Checking the finished internal temperature at the
completion of cooking time is recommended if you
did not use the probe while cooking. Temperatures
are shown in the Roasting Guide. For roasts over 8
lbs., check with thermometer at half-hour intervals
after half the cooking time has passed.
Q. Why is my roast crumbling when I try to
carve it?
A. Roasts are easier to slice if allowed to cool 10 to
20 minutes after removing them from the oven.
Be sure to cut across the grain of the meat.
Q. Do I need to preheat my oven each time
I cook a roast or poultry?
A. It is not necessary to preheat your oven.
Q. When buying a roast, are there any special tips
that would help me cook it more evenly?
A. Yes. Buy a roast as even in thickness as possible,
or buy rolled roasts.
Q. Can I seal the sides of my foil “tent” when
roasting a turkey?
A. Sealing the foil will steam the meat. Leaving it
unsealed allows the air to circulate and brown
the meat.

BROILING
Broiling is cooking food by intense radiant heat
from the upper broil element in the oven. Most
fish and tender cuts of meat can be broiled. Follow
these directions to keep spattering and smoking to
a minimum.
If the meat has fat or gristle around the edge, cut
vertical slashes through both about 2 inches apart. If
desired, the fat may be trimmed, leaving a layer about
1/8 inch thick.
Place the meat on the broiler grid in the broiler pan.
Always use the grid so the fat drips into the broiler
pan; otherwise the juices may become hot enough to
catch on fire.
Position a shelf on recommended shelf position as
suggested in the Broiling Guide. Most broiling is done
on C position, but if your oven is connected to 208
volts, you may wish to use a higher position.
Leave the door open to the
broil stop position. The door
stays open by itself, yet the
proper temperature is
maintained in the oven.
Turn the food using tongs only once during broiling.
Time the foods for the first side according to the
Broiling Guide.
Turn the food, then use the times given for the
second side as a guide to the preferred doneness.
NOTE: Broil will not work if the temperature probe
is plugged in.

3. Press START.
4. Press CLEAR/OFF when broiling

Use of Aluminum Foil
You can use aluminum foil to line your broiler pan
and broiler grid. However, you must mold the foil
tightly to the grid and cut slits in it just like the grid.
Without the slits, the foil will prevent fat and meat
juices from draining into the broiler pan. The juices
could become hot enough to catch on fire. If you do
not cut the slits, you are frying, not broiling.
Questions and Answers
Q. Why are my meats not turning out as brown
as they should?
A. In some areas, the power (voltage) to the oven may
be low. In these cases, preheat the broil element for
10 minutes before placing the broiler pan with
food in the oven. Check to see if you are using the
recommended shelf position. Broil for the longest
period of time indicated in the Broiling Guide.
Turn the food only once during broiling. You may
need to move the food to a higher shelf position.
Q. When broiling, is it necessary to always use
a grid in the pan?
A. Yes. Using the grid suspends the meat over the
pan. As the meat cooks, the juices fall into the
pan, thus keeping meat drier. Juices are protected
by the grid and stay cooler, thus preventing
excessive spatter and smoking.
Q. Should I salt the meat before broiling?
A. No. Salt draws out the juices and allows them to
evaporate. Always salt after cooking. Piercing
meat with a fork also allows juices to escape.
Turn the meat with tongs instead of a fork.
23
BROILING GUIDE
• When arranging food on the pan, do not let fatty
edges hang over the sides because the dripping fat
will soil the oven.
• The broiler does not need to be preheated. However,
for very thin foods, or to increase browning, preheat
if desired.
• Use LO Broil to cook foods such as poultry or thick
pork chops thoroughly without over-browning them.
• Frozen steaks can be broiled by positioning the oven
shelf at next lowest shelf position and increasing
cooking time given in this guide 11⁄2 times per side.
• If your oven is connected to 208 volts, rare steaks
may be broiled by preheating the broiler and
positioning the oven shelf one position higher.
• Always use the broiler pan and grid that comes with
your oven. It is designed to minimize smoking and
spattering by trapping juices in the shielded lower
part of the pan.
• The oven door should be open to the broil
stop position.
• For steaks and chops, slash fat evenly around the
outside edges of the meat. To slash, cut crosswise
through the outer fat surface just to the edge of the
meat. Use tongs to turn meat over to prevent
piercing the meat and losing juices.
• If desired, marinate meats or chicken before
broiling, or brush with barbecue sauce last 5 to
10 minutes only.

OPERATING THE SELF-CLEANING OVEN
(Normal Cleaning Time: 4 hours)
Before a Clean Cycle
1. Remove the broiler pan, broiler grid, all cookware
and any aluminum foil from the oven—they can’t
withstand the high cleaning temperatures.
NOTE: The oven shelves may be cleaned in the
self-cleaning oven. However, they will darken, lose
their luster and become hard to slide. Wipe the
shelf supports with cooking oil after self-cleaning
to make shelves slide more easily.
2. Wipe up heavy soil on the oven bottom. If you
use soap, rinse thoroughly before self-cleaning
to prevent staining.

3. Clean spatters or soil on the oven front frame and
the oven door outside the gasket with a dampened
cloth. The oven front frame and the oven door
outside the gasket do not get cleaned by the selfclean cycle. On these areas, use detergent and hot
water or a soap-filled steel wool pad. Rinse well
with a vinegar and water solution. This will help
prevent a brown residue from forming when the
oven is heated. Buff these areas with a dry cloth.
Do not clean the gasket.
Clean the outside front of the oven door with
soap and water. Also use soap and water to clean
under the oven vent grille. Do not use abrasives
or oven cleaners.
Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in place.
Do not rub or clean the door gasket—
the fiberglass material of the gasket has an
extremely low resistance to abrasion. An intact
and well-fitting oven door gasket is essential for
energy-efficient oven operation and good baking
results. If you notice the gasket becoming worn,
frayed or damaged in any way or if it has become
displaced on the door, you should have it replaced.
Do not let water run down through openings in
the top of the door. To help prevent water from
getting in these slots when cleaning, open the door
as far as it will go.
4. Close the oven door and make sure the oven light
is off. If the oven light is not turned off, the life of
the bulb will be shortened or it may burn out
immediately. The door latches automatically after
the clean cycle is set.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners or oven
protectors in or near the self-cleaning oven.
A combination of any of these products plus the high
clean-cycle temperature may damage the porcelain
finish of the oven.
Important:
The oven door must be closed and all controls must
be set correctly for the cycle to work properly.
• You can set a clean cycle in both ovens at the
same time. The last oven set will automatically
delay its start until the end of the first oven’s
clean cycle.
• You can use Timed Baking in one oven and SelfClean the other at the same time.

If white spots remain, remove them with a soap-filled
steel wool pad. Be sure to rinse thoroughly with a
vinegar and water mixture. These deposits are usually
a salt residue that cannot be removed by the clean cycle.
If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle,
repeat the cycle.
NOTE:
• No functions can be programmed before the door
automatically unlocks.
• If the shelves have become hard to slide, wipe the
shelf supports with cooking oil.

Questions and Answers
Q. If my oven clock is not set to the correct time
of day, can I still self-clean my oven?
A. If the clock is not set to the correct time of day you
will not be able to set a delay clean to end at a
specific time.
Q. Can I use commercial oven cleaners on any part
of my self-cleaning oven?
A. No cleaners or coatings should be used around
any part of this oven. If you do use them and do
not thoroughly rinse the oven with water, wiping it
absolutely clean afterwards, the residue can scar
the oven surface and damage metal parts the next
time the oven is automatically cleaned.
Q. Can I clean both ovens at the same time?
A. No. There is too much heat. The control only
allows one oven to clean at a time.
Q. What should I do if excessive smoking occurs
during cleaning?
A. This is caused by excessive soil. Turn the oven off.
Open the windows to rid the room of smoke. Wait
until the oven has cooled and the words “LOCKED
DOOR” are off in the display. Wipe up the excess
soil and reset the clean cycle.
Q. Is the “crackling” or “popping” sound I hear
during cleaning normal?
A. Yes. This is the sound of the metal heating
and cooling during both the cooking and
cleaning functions.
28
Q. Should there be any odor during the cleaning?
A. Yes, there will be an odor during the first few
cleanings. Failure to wipe out excessive soil might
also cause a strong odor when cleaning.
Q. What causes the hair-like lines on the enameled
surface of my oven?
A. This is a normal condition, resulting from heating
and cooling during cleaning. These lines do not
affect how your oven performs.
Q. Why do I have ash left in my oven after
cleaning?
A. Some types of soil will leave a deposit which
is ash. It can be removed with a damp sponge
or cloth.
Q. My oven shelves do not slide easily. What is
the matter?
A. After many cleanings, oven shelves will lose their
luster and become hard to slide. To make the
shelves slide more easily, wipe the shelf supports
with cooking oil.
Q. My oven shelves have become gray after the
self-clean cycle. Is this normal?
A. Yes. After the self-clean cycle, the shelves will
lose some luster and discolor to a deep gray color.
CARE AND CLEANING
Proper care and cleaning are important so your oven
will give you efficient and satisfactory service. Follow
these directions carefully in caring for your oven to
assure safe and proper maintenance.
BE SURE ELECTRICAL POWER IS OFF AND
ALL SURFACES ARE COOL BEFORE
CLEANING ANY PART OF THE OVEN.
Broiler Pan and Grid
After broiling, remove the broiler pan and grid from
the oven. Remove the grid from the pan. Carefully
pour the grease from the pan into a proper container.
Wash and rinse the broiler pan and grid in hot water
with a soap-filled or plastic scouring pad.
If food has burned on, sprinkle the grid with
detergent while hot and cover with wet paper
towels or a dishcloth. Soaking the pan will remove
burned-on foods.
Both the broiler pan and grid may be cleaned with a
commercial oven cleaner.
Do not store a soiled pan and grid anywhere in
the oven.
Both the broiler pan and grid can also be cleaned in
the dishwasher.
Do not clean the broiler pan or grid in the selfcleaning oven.
Oven Light Replacement
CAUTION: Before replacing your oven light bulb,
disconnect the electrical power for your oven at
the main fuse or circuit breaker panel.
Be sure to let the light cover and bulb cool completely
before removing or replacing them. When in use, light
bulbs can become warm enough to break if touched
with a moist cloth or towel. When cleaning, avoid
touching warm lights with cleaning cloths if the light
cover is removed.
The oven light is covered
with a removable glass
cover which is held in
place with a wire.
Remove the oven door, if
desired, to reach the
cover easily.
To remove:
• Hold your hand under the cover so it doesn’t fall
when released. With fingers of the same hand, firmly
push back the wire cover holder. Lift off the cover.
• DO NOT REMOVE ANY SCREWS.
• Replace bulb with 40-watt home appliance bulb.
To replace cover:
• Place it into the groove of the light receptacle. Pull
the wire forward to the center of cover until it snaps
in place. When in place, the wire holds the cover
firmly. Be certain the wire is in the depression in the
center of the cover.
• Connect the electrical power to the oven.
Wire cover holder
Oven Heating Elements
Do not clean the bake element or the broil element.
Any soil will burn off when the elements are heated.
The bake element can be lifted gently to clean the
oven floor. If spillovers, residue or ash accumulate
around the bake element gently wipe around the
element with warm water.

CARE AND CLEANING
(continued)
Lift-Off Oven Door
The oven door is
removable, but it is
heavy. You may need help
removing and replacing
the door. Do not lift the
door by the handle. This
can cause the glass to
break or can cause
damage to the door.
To remove the door,
open it a few inches to the special stop position that
will hold the door open. Grasp firmly on each side
and lift the door straight up and off the hinges.
NOTE:
• Be careful not to place hands between the hinge and
the oven door frame as the hinge could snap back
and pinch fingers.
• While working in the oven area, cover the hinges
with towels or empty paper towel rolls to prevent
pinched fingers and chipping the porcelain enamel
on the frame.
To replace the door, make sure the hinges are in the
special stop position. Position the slots in the bottom
of the door squarely over the hinges. Then lower the
door slowly and evenly over both hinges at the same
time. If hinges snap back against the oven frame, pull
them back out.
TO CLEAN THE DOOR:
Inside of the door:
• Because the area inside the gasket is cleaned during
the self-clean cycle, you do not need to clean this by
hand. Any soap left on the liner causes additional
stains when the oven is heated.
• The area outside the gasket can be cleaned with a
soap-filled scouring pad.
• Do not rub or clean the door gasket—the fiberglass
material of the gasket has an extremely low
resistance to abrasion. An intact and well-fitting
oven door gasket is essential for energy-efficient
oven operation and good baking results. If you
notice the gasket becoming worn, frayed or damaged
in any way or if it has become displaced on the door,
you should have it replaced.
NOTE: The gasket is designed with a gap at the
bottom to allow for proper air circulation.
Inside gasket
Gasket
Outside gasket
Outside of the door:
• Use soap and water to thoroughly clean the top,
sides and front of the oven door. DO NOT let water
run down through openings in the top of the door.
Rinse well. You may also use a glass cleaner to
clean the glass on the outside of the door.
• Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato sauces
and basting materials containing acids may cause
discoloration and should be wiped up immediately.
When surface is cool, clean and rinse.
• Do not use oven cleaners, cleansing powders or
harsh abrasives on the outside of the door.
Oven Shelves
Clean the shelves with a mild abrasive cleanser or
steel wool. After cleaning, rinse the shelves with
clean water and dry with a clean cloth.
NOTE: The oven shelves may be cleaned in selfcleaning oven. However, they will darken, lose their
luster and the shelves will become hard to slide.
Wipe the shelf supports with cooking oil after selfcleaning to make the shelves slide more easily.

Oven shelves
Probe
The temperature probe may be cleaned with soap and
water or a soap-filled scouring pad. Cool the
temperature probe before cleaning. Scour stubborn
spots with a soap-filled scouring pad, rinse and dry.
Do not immerse the temperature probe in water.
Do not store the temperature probe in the oven.
Control Panel
It’s a good idea to wipe the control panel after each
use of the oven. Clean with mild soap and water or
vinegar and water, rinse with clean water and polish
dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use abrasive cleansers, strong liquid
cleaners, plastic scouring pads or oven cleansers
on the control panel—they will damage the finish.
A 50/50 solution of vinegar and hot water works well.
Metal Parts
Do not use steel wool, abrasives, ammonia or
commercial oven cleaners. To safely clean surfaces;
wash, rinse and then dry with a soft cloth.
Glass Window
To clean the outside glass of the oven window, use a glass cleaner. Rinse
and polish with a dry cloth.
Do not allow the water or cleaner to run down inside openings in the
glass or the openings in the top of the oven door while cleaning.
