For models equipped
with a ceramic-glass

When the oven is on, warm
air is released through
the vents. This venting
is necessary for proper air

General Cleaning
Remove soils using hot, soapy water. Do not allow food spills with a high sugar
or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes, saukerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling)
to remain on the surface as they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.
To Remove Heavy Soil
1. Allow a dish of ammonia
to sit in the oven overnight
or for several hours
with the oven door closed. Clean softened
spots using hot, soapy water.
Rinse well with water and a clean cloth.
2.
If soil remains, use a soap-filled

Adhere
to the following
precautions
when using oven cleaners:
1. DO NOT spray on the electrical controls or switches because it could cause
a short circuit and result in sparking or fire.
2.
DO NOT allow a film from the cleaner to build up on the temperature
sensing bulb; it could cause the oven to heat improperly.
(The bulb is
located in the rear of the oven.) Carefully wipe the bulb clean after each
oven cleaning, being careful not to move the bulb. A change in its position
could affect how the oven bakes. Avoid bending

Continuous
Cleaning
Oven
(some
models)
Continuous
cleaning ovens have a special coating which is a porous ceramic
material.
This rough coating
tends to prevent grease spatters from forming
little beads which run down the side walls leaving streaks that require hand
cleaning.
Instead, when spatter hits the porous coating,
it disperses and is
partially absorbed. This spreading
action increases the exposure of oven soil to
heated air, making it less noticeable.
Soil may not disappear
completely.
Remaining
soil will gradually
fade with
continued
oven use. The special coating
works best on small amounts
of
spatter. Larger spills, or spills generating
from sugar, egg and dairy mixtures,
do not clean as well.
If difficult
soils occur:
1. Remove the oven racks and cookware.
2.
Remove soils by completing
steps a or b below:
a) Use hot, soapy water and wash soils using a nylon-bristly
brush or a nylon
mesh scouring pad. DO NOT rub or scrub with paper towels,
cloths or
sponges. They will leave lint on the oven coating.
b) Apply ammonia
with a sponge and dab it into the porous coating. Leave
the ammonia
on the soiled area for 30 minutes.
3.
Rinse with clear water.
4.
5.
6.
Close the oven door and push in and turn the Temperature
to 450°F (230°C).
Operate oven for 15 minutes.
Remaining
soil will fade with continued
oven use.

to Clean
Use hot, soapy water
and a cloth.
Dry with a clean cloth.
For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils
and built-up grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on
soil for 30 to 60 minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use
abrasive cleaners on any of these materials; they can scratch. To remove
control knobs, turn to the OFF position; grasp firmly and pull straight off the
shaft. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob
and the shaft; then push the knob into place.
Before cleaning
the control panel, turn all controls to OFF and remove the
control knobs. To remove, pull each knob straight off the shaft. Clean using
hot, soapy water and a dishcloth.
Rinse with a clean water and a dishcloth.
Cover stubborn
spots with an ammonia-soaked
paper towel for 30 to 40
minutes. Rinse. Be sure to squeeze excess water from the cloth before wiping
the panel; especially when wiping
around
the controls.
Excess water in or
around
the controls
may cause damage
to the appliance.
Cleaners made
especially for stainless steel such as Stainless Steel Magic, trademark
of Magic
American
Corp., or similar products
are recommended.
Always follow
the
manufacturer's
instructions.
Be sure to rinse the cleaners as bluish stains may
occur during heating and cannot be removed. To replace knobs after cleaning,
line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into
place.
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with
a 1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia.
If necessary, cover difficult
spots
with an ammonia-soaked
paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean
water and a damp cloth, and then scrub with a soap-filled
scouring pad. Rinse
and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain
may
become damaged
during future heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners on
the cooktop.
Oven racks may be removed or left in the oven during the self-clean cycle for
cleaning.
If removed,
clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following
manufacturer's
instructions.
Rinse with clean water and dry.
If the racks are cleaned in the self-clean cycle, their color will turn slightly blue
and the finish will be dull. After the self-clean cycle is complete, and the oven
has cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a
small amount of baby oil or salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into
the rack positions).

Surface elements can be unplugged
and removed to make cleaning the drip

when they are turned on.
Food spilled on a hot element will burn off. Food spilled on a cool element may
be cleaned with a damp cloth--any
remaining
soil will burn off the next time
the element is used.
Never
immerse
a surface
element
in water.
To Remove the Surface Elements and Drip Bowls
1. Lift the edge of the drip bowl across from the terminal end. Lift the surface
element and drip bowl together just enough to clear the cooktop.
2. While holding the drip bowl and surface element, gently pull the terminal
end out from the terminal plug. If equipped, DO NOT remove the hold
down clip from the drip bowl.
To Clean Drip Bowls
Wash in hot, soapy water or in the dishwasher.
Rinse and dry while still warm.
Hard to remove, burned on soil can be removed by soaking the drip bowls for
about 20 minutes in a lightly diluted liquid cleanser or a solution of ammonia
and water (1/2 cup ammonia
to 1 gallon of water). A nylon scrubber may be
used after soaking. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or steel wool, as they will
scratch the surface. Always rinse with clean water and polish dry with a soft
cloth.
To Replace Drip Bowls and Surface Elements
1. Slide the terminal end on the element through the opening in the drip
bowl.
2. Align the element support to rest on the rim inside the drip bowl. If your
drip bowl is equipped with a hold down clip, align the element support
opposite the terminal end with the slot in the hold down clip, and snap into
place.
3. After the element is positioned in the drip bowl, line up the terminal end
with the terminal plug as shown.
4. Hold the surface element and drip bowl together as level as possible and
firmly push the terminal end into the terminal plug. Make sure element
terminal is seated properly into terminal plug. Make sure the surface
element is level to reduce the hazard of pans sliding off the element.
To Raise the Top for Cleaning
1. Grasp the sides and lift from the front. Lift-up rods will support the top in
its raised position. Only lift the top high enough to allow the support rods
to snap into place.
2. Clean underneath
using a clean cloth and hot, soapy water.
3. To lower the top, gently push back on each rod to release the notched
support.
Hold the range top and slide the range top down into the range
frame.
