Adjusting
the Oven Temperature
Control
Does your oven seem hotter or colder than your old oven? The temperature of
your old oven may have shifted gradually
without you noticing the change,
Your new oven is properly adjusted to provide accurate temperatures,
But
when comparing
to your old oven, the new design may give you difficult
results,
If after using the oven for a period of time, you are not satisfied with the
temperature
settings, they can be adjusted by following these steps:

• If food is cooking too fast, turn the Oven Temperature Control counterclockwise until the Lower Oven HEATING Signal Light goes off.
• If you want the food to broil slower from the start, set the Oven Temperature
Control between 150° and 325°F (65.5 and 162.7°C). The lower the temperature, the slower the cooking.
The Oven Selector
must be on BROIL for all broiling temperatures.
NOTE: The lower oven door must be partly open whenever the oven is
set to BROIL. Leaving the door open allows the oven to maintain proper
temperatures.
Using the Automatic

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 Self-Cleaning 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 detergent or a soapy steel
wool pad on...
• The inside of the door.
• The frame around
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 and pans you may have
stored in the oven. They can't
stand the heat.
the oven.
3. Wipe out any loose soil or
grease. Thiswill help reduce smoke
during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
4. If the oven has a rotlsserle, make
sure the motor socket cover Is
closed.
DO
CLEAN FRAME
DO
CLEAN DOOR
5. If you want the oven racks to
remain shiny, remove from the
oven and clean by hand. Otherwise, put oven racks on second
and fourth guides (guides are
counted from bottom to top). After
racks are cleaned in the SelfGleaning cycle, they become
harder to slide. See chart on
page 16.
DO NOT
CLEAN SEAL
Turn on the vent hood or other kitchen vent during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
This will help remove heat and odors that are normal during the cycle.
SPECIAL CAUTIONS:
DO NOT use commercial
oven
cleaners in your oven. Damage to
the porcelain finish may occur.
DO NOT force the Lock Lever, you
could bend or break it. The lever is
designed to stay locked untll 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 Self-Cleaning
cycle foil can burn or melt and
damage the oven surface.
12
DO NOT block the vent during
the Self-Cleaning
cycle. Air must
move freely for best cleaning
results.
Setting the Controls
1. Set the Oven Selector and Oven
Temperature Control on CLEAN.
The Lower Oven ON Signal Light
will come on.
3. Make sure the clock is set to the
rlght time of day. (See Upper
Microwave Oven Use& Care
Guide for instructions.)
5. Touch START.The oven will start the
Self-Cleaning
cycle automatically at the time you have set. The
Lower Oven LOCKED Signal 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 this light is on.
2. Liflthe panel between the upper
and lower oven doors. Move the
Lock Lever all the way to the
right.
1
Set a 2 to 4 hour Self-Cleaning
cycle.Touch STARTTIMEPad, then
touch the Number Pads for the
time you want to start.Touch STOP
TIMEPad, then touch the Number
Pads for the time you want to
stop. (Option: Only set the Stop
Time if you want the Self-Cleaning cycle to start immediately.)
A 3-hour Self-Cleaning cycle is
recommended for moderately
soiled ovens.
• Use 2 hours for light soil.
• Use 3-4 hours for moderate to
heavy soil.
continued

6. After the Self-Cleaning
cycle
is completed,
the Lower Oven
LOCKED Signal Light goes off.
Move the Lock Lever back to the
left, Do not force it. Wait until it
will move easily.
Special
7.
Turn the Oven Selector and Oven
Temperature Control to OFF. The
Lower Oven ON Signal Light will
go off.
8. 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.
Tips
• Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the Self-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 Self-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 Self-Cleaning
cycle longer the next time
and hand clean areas noted on page 12.

3. When the Lower Oven LOCKED Signal Light goes off, move the Lock
Lever back to the left. DO NOT
FORCE IT. Wait until it moves easily.
Turn the Oven SeleGtor and Oven
Temperature Control to OFF.
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.
