IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (continued)
• IMPORTANT—Do not attempt to operate the oven
during a power failure. If the power fails, always
turn the oven off. If the oven is not turned off and the
power resumes, the oven may begin to operate again.
Food left unattended could catch fire or spoil.
• Protective liners— Do not use aluminum foil to line surface
burner pans or oven bottom, or any other part of the
appliance. Only use aluminum foil as recommended for
baking if used as a cover placed on the food. Any other used
of protective liners or aluminum foil may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire or a short circuit.
Use Proper Flame Size—Adjust flame
size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the
utensil. The use of undersized utensils will exposed a portion
of the burner flame to direct contact and may result in ignition
of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to flame will also
improve efficiency.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for rangetop service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer's recommendations for rangetop use.
• Do Not Use Decorative Surface Burner Covers. If a burner
is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover will become
hot and possibly melt. Burns will occur if the hot covers are
touched. Damage may also be done to the cooktop or
burners because the covers may cause overheating. Air will
be blocked from the burner and cause combustion problems.
Do not use stove top grills on the burner
grates of sealed gas burners. If you use a stove top grill on
a sealed gas burner, it will cause incomplete combustion and
can result in exposure to carbon monoxide levels above
allowable current standards. This can be hazardous to your
health.
Electronic controllers can be damaged
by cold temperatures. When you use your appliance for
the first time, or if it has not been used for a long period
of time, make sure that it has been exposed to a
temperature above 0°C/32°F for at least 3 hours before
connecting it to the power supply.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
OVEN
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR COOKTOP
• Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven is vented
at the rear of the cooktop. Touching the surfaces in this area
when the oven is operating may cause severe burns. Also, do
not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or near the oven
vent. These items could melt or ignite.
• Use Care When Opening Door or Warmer Drawer (if
equipped)—Stand to the side of the appliance when
opening the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape
before you remove or replace food in the oven/warmer
drawer.
• Know which knob controls each surface burner.
Always turn the knob to the LITE position when igniting the
burners. Visually check that the burner has lit. Then adjust
the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of the
utensil.
• Placement of Oven/Warmer Drawer (if equipped)
Racks. Always place oven racks in desired location while
oven/drawer (if equipped) is cool. Remove all utensils from
the rack before removing rack. If rack must be moved while
oven/drawer is hot, use extreme caution. Use potholders and
grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let
potholders contact the hot oven element or interior of the
oven/warmer drawer (if equipped).
• Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped with
one or more surface burners of different sizes. Select
utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the
surface burner. The use of undersized utensils will expose
a portion of the surface burner to direct contact and may
result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil
to the surface burner will also improve efficiency.
• Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The broiler
pan and grid allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away
from the high heat of the broiler.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Should
Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface Burners—To reduce
the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and
spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil. The
handle of the utensil should be positioned so that it is
turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface
burners.
• Do not cover the broiler or warmer drawer (if
equipped) grid with aluminum foil. Exposed fat and
grease could ignite.
• Do not touch a hot light bulb with a damp cloth. Doing
so could cause the bulb to break. Disconnect the appliance
or turn off the power to the appliance before removing and
replacing light bulb.
• Never Leave Surface Burners Unattended—Boilovers
cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a
pan that has boiled dry may melt.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (continued)
SELF-CLEANING OVENS:
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING
YOUR RANGE
• Clean the appliance regularly to keep all parts free of
grease that could catch fire. Exhaust fan ventilation hoods
and grease filters should be kept clean. Do not allow grease
to accumulate. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire.
Refer to the hood manufacturer's instructions for cleaning.
• Cleaners/aerosols—Always follow the manufacturer's
recommended directions for use. Be aware that excess
residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing
damage and/or injury.
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts of the
oven listed in this owner's guide. Before self-cleaning the
oven, remove the broiler pan and any utensils stored in the
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 oven cleaner or oven liner
protective coating of any kind should be used in or around any
part of the oven.
• Remove oven racks. Oven racks color will change if left in
the oven during a self-cleaning cycle.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Selecting Surface Cooking Utensils
For best result and energy conservation, choose cooking utensils that have these characteristics:
Pans should have flat bottoms. Check for
flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom. There should be no gap between
the pan and ruler.
Note: Always use a utensil for its intended purpose. Follow manufacturer's instructions. Some utensils were not made
to be used in the oven or on the cooktop.
Note: Do not use griddle on more than
one burner. That can damage your
cooktop and that can result in exposure
to carbon monoxide levels above allowable current standards. That can hazardous to your health.
* Specialty pans such as lobster pots, griddles and pressure cookers may be used
but must conform to the above recommended cookware requirements.

Specialty Pans & Trivets
Woks with flat bottoms suitable for
use on your cooktop are available in
most cookshop or hardware stores.
Round-bottomed woks (with a
support ring that does not extend
beyond the burner unit) may also be
used. The metal ring was designed to
support the wok safely when it is
filled with large amounts of liquids
(soup making) or fat (frying).
DO NOT use a wok if it is equipped with a
metal ring that extends beyond the
burner unit. Because this ring traps heat,
the surface unit and cooktop surface
could be damaged.
Wire trivets: Do not use wire trivets. Cookware bottoms must be in direct contact
with the grates.
DO NOT use two burner units to heat one large pan such as a
roaster or griddle, or allow cooking utensils to boil dry. The bottom surface of the
pan in either of these situations could cause discoloring or crazing of the appliance
cooking surface, and damage to the grates and burner units.
Canning Tips &
Information
Canning can generate
large amounts of steam. Use extreme caution to prevent burns. Always raise the
lid to vent steam away from you.
1. Use tested recipes and follow instructions carefully. Check with your local
Cooperative Agricultural Extension Service or a manufacturer of glass jars for
the latest canning information.
2. Use flat-bottomed canners only. Heat is spread more evenly when the bottom
surface is flat.
3. Center canner on the burner grate.
4. Start with hot water and a high heat setting to reduce the time it takes to bring
the water to a boil; then reduce the heat setting as low as possible to maintain
a constant boil.
5. It is best to can small amounts and light loads.
Prevent damage to cooktop and burner grates:
1. Do not use water bath or pressure canners that extend more than one inch
beyond the edge of the burner grate.
2. Do not leave water bath or pressure canners on high heat for an extended
amount of time.
3. Alternate surface units between each batch to allow the units and surrounding
surfaces to cool down. Try to avoid canning on the same burner unit all day.
Safe canning requires that harmful micro-organisms are destroyed
and the jars are sealed completely. When canning in a water bath canner, a gentle
but steady boil must be maintained continuously for the required time.

Liquefied Petroleum (Propane) Gas Conversion
The cooktop can be used with Natural Gas or Propane Gas. It is shipped from the factory for use with natural gas.
If you wish to convert your appliance for use with LP/Propane gas, use the supplied fixed orifices located in a bag containing the
literature marked, "FOR LP/PROPANE GAS CONVERSION". Follow the instructions package with the orifices.
The conversion must be performed by a qualified service technician in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions and all
codes and requirements of the authority having jurisdiction. Failure to follow instructions could result in serious injury or property
damage. The qualified agency performing this work assumes responsibility for the conversion.
Severe shock or damage to the appliance may occur if the appliance is not installed by a qualified installer.
Flame Size
For most cooking, start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower one to complete
the process. Use a chart below as a guide for determining proper flame size for various types of
cooking. The size and type of utensil used and the amount of food being cooked will influence
the setting needed for cooking.
For deep fat frying, use a thermometer and adjust the surface control knob accordingly. If the
fat is too cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy. If the fat is too hot, the food will brown
so quickly that the center will be undercooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at
once as the food will neither brown or cook properly.
*Flame Size
Type of Cooking
High Flame
Medium Flame
Start most foods; bring water to a boil; pan broiling
Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces, gravies; steam
Low Flame
Keep foods cooking; poach; stew
Never extend the flame
beyond the outer edge of
the utensil. A higher flame
simply wastes heat and
energy, and increases your
risk of being burned by the
flame.

information
Setting Surface Controls
The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue and hardly visible in a well-lighted room.
Each cone of flame should be steady and sharply defined. Adjust or clean burner if flame is yellow-orange. To clean burner, see
instructions under General Cleaning.
Each burner lights automatically from an electric ignitor each time a control knob is turned to the LITE position.
Surface Burner Control
Knob
To operate the surface burner:
NOTE: All knobs shown in this
1. Place cooking utensil on burner.
owner's Guide are typical only.
2. Push in and turn the Surface Control knob
counterclockwise to LITE.
3. Visually check that the burner has lit.
4. After the burner ignites, turn the control knob to the desired flame size. The knob can now be
turned in either direction without being pushed in. The control knobs do not have to be set at a
particular mark. Use the guides and adjust the flame as needed. DO NOT cook with the control
knob in the LITE position, as this will cause excess wear on the ignitor electrode.
5. To turn the burner off, turn the control knob clockwise as far as it will go, to the OFF position.
In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface burners can be lit manually. To light a
surface burner, hold a lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn the surface control knob to
LITE. After the burner ignites, turn the control knob to the desired flame size. Use caution when
lighting surface burners manually.
Surface burners in use when an electrical power failure occurs will continue to operate normally.
Do not operate the burner for an extended period of time without cookware on the grate. The finish
on the grate may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
top of the cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Pot holders, towels or wood spoons could catch
fire if placed too close to a flame.
Before Setting Oven Controls
Oven Vent Location
The oven is vented through at the rear of the cooktop. When the oven is on, warm
air is released through the vents. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation
in the oven and good baking results. DO NOT block the vents. Doing so may cause
cooking failures, fire or damage to the appliance
Arranging Oven Racks
ALWAYS ARRANGE OVEN RACKS WHEN THE OVEN IS COOL (PRIOR TO OPERATING
THE OVEN). Always use oven mitts when using the oven.
To remove an oven rack, pull the rack forward until it stops. Lift up front of rack and
slide out.
To replace an oven rack, Fit the rack onto the guides on the oven walls. Tilt the front
of the rack upward and slide the rack back into place.
Setting Oven Controls
For oven settings, refer to the Electronic Oven Control Guide.

Before Setting Warmer Drawer Control (some models)
Arranging Warmer Drawer Rack Positions
Set the warmer drawer rack in the vertical position as shown beside:
The rack can be used in 2 ways:
• In the upright position to allow low profile food items to be
placed both under and on top of the rack (for example, rolls or
biscuits on top of the rack and a casserole dish under).
• In the Downward position to allow you to place light weight
food items and empty dishware (for example, rolls or pastries and
dinner plates)
Upright Position
Downward Position
Setting Warmer Drawer Control (some models)
Note: The warmer drawer cannot be used during an oven self-cleaning cycle. The warmer drawer is equipped with a catch
which may require extra force when opening and closing the drawer.
Use the warmer drawer to keep hot foods hot such as: vegetables, gravies, meats, casseroles, biscuits and rolls, pastries
and heated dinner plates.
To Operate the Warmer Drawer
The purpose of the warmer drawer is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Always start with hot food. It is not
recommended to heat cold food in the warmer drawer.
All food placed in the warmer drawer should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain moisture and softness. Do not
cover crisp foods. Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the drawer and be very difficult to
clean.
Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven use in the warmer drawer.
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when removing food from the warmer drawer as cookware and plates will
be hot.
Indicator Light
The indicator light is located above or below the thermostat control knob. It turns on when the control is set, and stays on until
the control is turned off. Make sure indicator light is off when removing food from drawer.
To Set the Thermostat Control
The thermostat control knob is used to select the temperature of the warmer drawer. It is located on
the control panel. The temperatures are approximate, and are designated by HI, MED and LO. The
control can be set to the three settings, or anywhere between.
WARM & SERVE
DRAWER
1. To set the thermostat, push in and turn the knob to the desired setting.
2. For best results, preheat the drawer before adding food. An empty drawer will reach the LO
setting in about 12 minutes, the MED setting in about 15 minutes, and the HI setting in about 18
minutes.
3. When done, turn the thermostat control to OFF.

information
Setting Warmer Drawer Controls (some models) (continued)
Temperature Selection
Refer to the chart for recommended settings. If a particular food is not listed, start with the medium setting. If more crispness is
desired, remove the lid or aluminum foil. Most foods can be kept at serving temperatures by using the medium setting. When
a combination of foods are to be kept warm (for instance, a meat with 2 vegetables and rolls), use the high setting. Refrain from
opening the warmer drawer while in use to eliminate loss of heat from the drawer. Open only for adding or removing food.

Convection Cooking (some models)
NOTE: The convection fan automatically turns off when the oven door is opened while oven is in a convection
mode and resumes when the door is closed again.
The convection oven uses a fan located in the rear wall of the oven to circulate heated air around the food to be cooked. The
controlled air flow pattern quickly seals the food surface retaining the natural juices and flavor. This method of cooking enables
you to obtain the best culinary results when baking, thawing, dehydrating and roasting foods.
Convection notes:
1. Most recipes can be made with temperatures set at 13°C (25°F) lower than temperatures required for normal radiant
cooking methods. Refer to the electronic oven control operating instructions included in section “Electronic Oven Control”
of this Use & Care Guide. This can result in considerable reduction of food shrinkage and more tender meats.
2. Batch cooking is more convenient with better results.
3. Defrosting is quicker in convection mode when compared to regular radiant cooking.
4. Remember to use tested recipes with times adjusted for convection baking/roasting when using the convection mode.
Times may be reduced by as much as 30% when using the convection feature.
Convection Roasting
(some models)
When convection roasting, use the broiler pan and grid, and the roasting rack. The
broiler pan will catch grease spills and the grid will help prevent grease spatters. The
roasting rack will hold the meat.
1. Place oven rack on bottom or next-bottom rack position.
2. Place the grid in the broiler pan. The roasting rack fits on the grid allowing the
heated air to circulate under the food for even cooking and helps to increase
browning on the underside. Make sure the roasting rack is securely seated on the
grid in the broiler pan. DO NOT use the broiler pan without the grid or cover the
grid with aluminum foil.

Preheating is suggested when searing rare steaks. (Remove the broiler pan before preheating.
Foods will stick if placed on hot metal.) To preheat, set the oven control(s) to BROIL as instructed
in the Owner’s Guide. Wait for the element to become red-hot, usually about 2 minutes.
Preheating is not necessary when broiling meats well-done.
To Broil
Broil on one side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and serve.
Always pull rack out to the “stop” position before turning or removing food.
Open door to the "Broil
Stop" position when broiling
Determining Broiling Times
Broiling times vary, so watch the food closely. Time not only depends on the distance from the element, but on the thickness
and aging of meat, fat content and doneness preferred. The first side usually requires a few minutes longer than the second.
Frozen meats also require additional time.
Broiling Tips
The broiler pan and its grid allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away
from the high heat of the broiler.
Always pull oven rack out to the “stop” position before
turning or removing food.
DO NOT use the pan without its grid. DO NOT cover the grid with foil. The exposed
grease could ignite.
Should an oven fire occur, close the oven door and turn off the oven. If the fire
continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use a fire extinguisher. DO NOT put water or flour on
the fire. Flour may be explosive.
Broiler Clean-Up Tips:
• To make cleaning easier, line the bottom of the broiler pan with aluminum foil. DO NOT cover the broiler grid with foil.
• To prevent grease from baking on, remove the broiler pan from the oven as soon as cooking is completed. Use hot pads
because the broiler pan is extremely hot. Pour off grease. Soak the pan in HOT, soapy water.
• Clean the broiler pan as soon as possible after each use. If necessary, use soap-filled steel wool pads. Heavy scouring may
scratch the grid.
Changing Oven Light
Be sure the oven is unplugged and all parts are COOL before replacing the oven light bulb. Do not turn the
oven light on during the self-cleaning cycle. High temperature will reduce lamp life.
On some models an interior oven light will turn on automatically when the oven door is opened.
The oven light may be turned on when the door is closed by using the oven light switch located on the control panel.
On a self clean oven the lamp is covered with a glass shield held in place by a wire holder.
THIS GLASS SHIELD MUST BE IN PLACE WHENEVER THE OVEN IS IN USE.
To replace the light bulb:
CAUTION: BE SURE OVEN IS COOL
1. Turn the power off at the main source.
2. Wear a leather-faced glove for protection against possible broken glass.
3. Replace bulb with a 40 watt appliance bulb only.
4. For self-cleaning oven, press wire holder to one side to release glass shield, change bulb
and be sure to replace glass shield.

To Clean the Cooktop Glass
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the
cooktop is COOL.
The cooktop is designed to make cleaning easier. Because the burners are sealed, cleanups are
easy when spillovers are cleaned up immediately. Remove burner grates before cleaning. To clean
the cooktop, wipe with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry.
Correct and consistent cleaning is essential to maintaining your heat-resistant glass top. Spills and
spatters should be wiped up using a clean paper towel and sudsy water. This should be done either
as soon as possible after the spill occurs, after cooking is completed, or at the latest, before using
the cooktop again. Use caution if the cooktop is hot. For heavy spills, spatter or burned-on materials, use a razor blade scraper. Hold the razor blade scraper at a 30° angle and remove food spills
or burned on food residue.
For sugary spillovers:
Sugary spills can cause pitting of your cooktop surface. Therefore, you must begin cleaning the spills
while the cooktop is still hot.
Finish the cleaning process by applying a recommended heat-resistant glass cooktop cleaning
creme. Apply cleaner with clean, damp paper towel. Rinse with a paper towel dampened with
clean water and wipe dry. Always wipe the cooktop thoroughly to avoid heating any cleaner
residue.
could result.
Remove burner grates
before cleaning. Heavy
burned-on spills can be
removed with a razor
blade scraper. Use
caution
to
avoid
damaging surface.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners on any part of the cooktop. Damage to the finish or parts
DO NOT use the following on the heat-resistant glass cooktop:
• Abrasive plastic, nylon, metal scouring or cloth pads. They may scratch the cooktop and make it more difficult to clean later.
Always use a new, clean paper towel when cleaning the heat-resistant glass top.
• Anything that may melt (plastics, aluminum foil, sugar or food with a high sugar content).
• Heavy duty cleansers, rust or stain removers.
• Chlorine bleach, ammonia, hydrofluoric acid or any other kind of chemical cleaners. They may etch or discolor the cooktop.
• Sponges, cloths or dish towels. Always use a new, clean paper towel when cleaning the cooktop. Lint or soil remaining on
the cooktop from a cloth or sponge can burn and cause discoloration.
To Clean the Burner Grates, Contoured Burner Pans, Burner Caps and Burner
Bases
The burner grates, contoured burner pans, burner caps, and burner bases should be routinely cleaned. Keeping the burner ports
clean will prevent improper ignition and an uneven flame. See instructions below.
To Clean the Burner Grates
Be sure burners and grates are cool before you place your hand, a pot holder, cleaning
cloths or other material on them. The cast iron burner grates can be washed in hot soapy water.
Rinse thoroughly and dry the grates with a cloth- don't put them on the cooktop while still wet.
Be sure the grates are positioned securely over the burners.
To remove burned on food, place the grates in a covered container or heavy plastic bag. Add
1/4 cup ammonia and soak for 30 minutes. Wash, rinse well and dry. An abrasive cleaner can
be used for stubborn stains.
Burner Grates
(some models)
To Clean the Contoured Burner Pans
The square burner pans are attached to the cooktop and are not removable. The burner pan
forms a recessed well area located around each burner unit. If a spill occurs in one of the well
areas, blot up spill with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry.

To Clean the Burner Cap
Use a soap-filled scouring pad or a mild abrasive cleanser to clean burner caps. If
necessary, cover difficult spots with an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40
minutes. Rub gently with a soap-filled scouring pad and rinse with a mixture of
clean water and vinegar. Wipe dry. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may
become damaged during future heating.
To Clean the Burner Base and Gas Opening
The ports (or slots) around the burner base must be routinely cleaned. Use a smallgauge wire or needle to clean small slots or holes. Use care to prevent damage to
the electrode. If a cleaning cloth should catch the electrode, it could break or
damage the electrode. If the electrode is damaged or broken, the surface burner
will not light. Manual lighting with a match is still possible.
For proper flow of gas and ignition of the burner—DO NOT ALLOW SPILLS, FOOD,
CLEANING AGENTS OR ANY OTHER MATERIAL TO ENTER THE GAS OPENING.
Gas must flow freely through the small hole in the brass orifice for the burners to
light properly. If the orifice gas opening becomes soiled or clogged, use a smallgauge wire or needle to clean. ALWAYS keep the burner base and the burner cap
in place whenever a surface burner is in use.

To Replace the Burner Cap Assembly
Make sure all parts are dry before placing back on the burner.
1. Replace burner base at it place. Put back burner cap. Make sure each burner cap is properly aligned and level.
2. Turn the burner on to determine if it will light. If burner does not light after cleaning, contact an authorized servicer. Do not
service the sealed burner yourself.
Cleaning the Self-Clean Oven (some models)
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
- Allow the oven to cool before cleaning.
- Wear rubber gloves when cleaning any exterior parts of the oven manually.
During the self-clean cycle, the outside of the wall oven can become very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave small
children unattended near the appliance.
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any range.
Move birds to another well ventilated room.
Before cleaning any part of the oven, be sure the electronic oven control is turned off or else push CANCEL pad.
Wait until the oven is cool.
DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any art of the self-cleaning oven. DO NOT clean
the oven door gasket. The gasket on the oven door is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or move
the gasket. DO NOT cooking or foil could melt and damage the oven surface.
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking temperatures) which eliminate soil completely or
reduce it to a fin powdered ash you can which away with damp cloth.

Cleaning the Self-Clean Oven (some models) (continued)
Preparing the Oven for Self-Cleaning
1. Remove an excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the self-cleaning
cycle. To clean, use hot soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers can cause heavy
smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. DO NOT allow food spills with
a high sugar or acid content (such as tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling)
to remain on the surface as they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.
2. Clean any soil from the oven frame and the door liner (see illustration). These
areas heat sufficiently during self-cleaning cycle to burn soil on. Clean with soap
and water.
3. Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils and any foil. These items do not
withstand high cleaning temperatures
4. Oven racks may be left in the oven or may be removed. If they go through the
clean cycle, their color will turn slightly dull. After the cycle is completed 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.

What to Expect During Cleaning
While the oven is in operation, the oven heats to temperatures much higher than those used in normal cooking. Sounds of metal
expansion and contraction are normal. Odor is also normal as the food soil is being removed. Smoke may appear through the
oven vent, located on the top of the control panel.
If heavy spillovers are not wiped up before cleaning, they may flame and cause more smoke and odor than usual. This is normal
and safe and should not cause alarm. If available, use an exhaust fan during the self-cleaning cycle.
NOTE: A smoke eliminator in the oven vent converts most of the soil into a colorless vapor.
Setting the Controls for Clean Cycle
For the setting of the clean cycle, refer to the Electronic Oven Control Guide.
