The Oven Vent
The oven vent is located under the
right rear surface unit. When the oven is
on, hot air and moisture escape from
the oven through this vent. Poor baking
can result if this vent IS blocked. When
using the oven, do not use oversized
pans or other items that might block
the oven vent.
Optional
Rotisserie
If you would like a rotisserie for your lower oven, you can order a kit [Part No.
RCK-79/261881) from your Whirlpool Dealer. The kit includes easy installation
instructions.

CAUTION: Reflector bowls reflect heat back to the utensils on the surface units. They also help catch spills. When they are kept clean, they
reflect heat better and look new longer.
If a reflector bowl gets discolored, some of the utensils may not be flat
enough, or some may be too large for the surface unit. In either case,
some of the heat that’s meant to go into or around a utensil goes down
and heats the reflector bowl. This extra heat can discolor it. See “Cooking Guide” for further Information.

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.

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 set long enough or you
may not have prepared
the oven
properly. Set the cleaning
time
longer the next time and hand
clean areas noted on page 19
Oven racks lose their shine, discolor and become harder to slide
on their guides when they are left
in the oven during the cleaning
cycle. To make them slide easier,
polish the edges of the racks wrth
a soapy steel-wool pad, rinse
well and wipe on a thin coat of
salad oil.
