4. KEEP children away from the
range when it is on. The cooktop,
oven walls, racks and door can
be hot enough to cause burns.
9. DO NOT heat unopened
containers. They could explode. The
hot contents could burn and
container particles could cause
injury.
5. DO NOT use a range to heat a
room. Persons in the room could
be burned or injured, or a fire

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 bv hand.
They do not get hot enough during the Self-Cleaning
cycle for
soil to burn away. Use hot water
and detergent or a soapy Steel
wool pad on...
l the frame
around the oven.
l the inside
of the door, especially
the part outside the oven seal.
DO NOT clean the tiberglass
seal.
DO NOT move It or bend It. Poor
cleaning
and poor baking will result.
2. Remove the racks, broiler pan
and any pots and pans YOU may
have stored in the oven. They
can’t stand the hight heat.
3.
Wipe out any loose soil or grease
This will help reduce smoke and
possible flare-ups during the
cleaning
cycle.
Oven racks must not be
cleaned
In the oven. They will
warp and discolor.
Clean Door
Turn on the vent hood or other kitchen vent during the cleaning
cycle.
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
the porcelain
finish may occur.
to
DO NOT force the Lock 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.
DO NOT use foil or other liners in the
oven. During the cleaning
cycle foil
can burn or melt and damage
the
oven surface.

must be in the OFF position.
3. When the oven temperature
exceeds
normal baklng temperatures,
the Clean Light comes
on and the oven door can’t be
opened. The Lock Lever must not
be moved.
5. Atter the oven is cool, wipe any
residue or ash with a damp cloth.
If needed, touch up spots with
cleaner or plastic scouring pad.
position. This will automatically
start a 2Y2 hour Self-Cleaning
cycle. If the door is not completely
closed or the lever is not all the
way to the right, the cycle will not
start.
4. Afer the Clean Cycle Is
completed
and the oven temperature has dropped
below
500°F (26o”C), the Clean Light
goes off and the Lock Lever can
be moved back to the COOK
position. Do not force It. Wait until
it moves easily. Turn the Oven
Selector to OFF.
Special Tips
Keep the kitchen well ventilated
during 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 long enough or you may
not have prepared
the oven
properly. Wait at least10 minutes
for the oven to reset the automatic
timing, then reset the control for
another cleaning
cycle.
To stop the cieanlng
cycle
at any tlme:
Turn the Oven Selector to OFF.
When the oven temperature
drops below 500°F (260°C) the
Lock Lever can be moved to the
COOK Position. Do not force it.
Wait until it moves easily.
