Broiling can be slowed down by setting a lower temperature on the Oven Temperature Control Knob instead of “BROIL.” Using a lower temperature will cause the broil element to turn on and off during the broiling so that the food broils more slowly. When the Oven Temperature Control Knob is on “BROIL.” the Broil Element heats all the time. Set the temperature lower and It heats some of the time. The lower the temperature setting, the shorter are the periods of heating NOTE: The Oven Selector must be in the “BROIL” position in order for the Broil Element to heat 5 < Remove the locking 1 screw; NOTICE position of notches. Resetting the Oven Temperature Control Knob: Does your new oven seem hotter or colder than your old oven? The temperatures in older ovens often shift very gradually, getting hotter or colder without the user really noticing the change. Your new oven is properly adlusted to provide accurate temperatures. but when compared to your old range, the new design may give you different baking results. If you think that the temperature setting on your range needs to be hotter or colder. you can adjust the Temperature Control Knob by yourself. To adjust the setting, first pull the Oven Temperature Control Knob straight off On the back. lust across from the locking screw. are a row of notches on the black part of the knob and one tooth on the chrome part. To set your oven about 10 F(5’C) cooler. remove the locking screw and move the row of notches one notch closer to “LO ‘~To set your oven about 1O-F(5’C) warmer, move the row of notches one notch closer to “HI ” Each notch equals about lO’F(5’C) Replace the locking screw Settinq Lower: move black part toward “LO.” One notch equals about 10°F (5LC). Timer to the correct time of day the Minute Timer Turn the knob until the minutes you want to time show in the window. When the time you set is up. a buzzer will sound. Turn the dial to “OFF“ to stop the buzzer The Minute Timer does not start or stop cooking. It only buzzes when the time you set is up. It can be used to time almost any cooking operation. It can even remind you of other things (like when to add softener to the washer). For the most accurate timing. turn the knob past the time you want Then turn it back to the settlng Using Minute clock 1. Push in the Minute Timer Knob and turn it clockwise until the digits show the correct time of day. 2. The Minute Timer dial will turn as you set the clock. When clock is set. let the knob pop out. Then. while it is out. turn the Minute Timer hand counter-clockwise to “OFF.” If you push in on the knob when setting the Minute Timer. you will change the setting of the clock. Using Higher: move black part toward “HI.” One notch equals about 10°F (5°C). the the automatic MEALTIMER’ clock The automatic feature of the MEALTIMER- Clock lets you be away from home when the oven starts. or when it stops.

The oven vent There is an oven vent under the right rear surface element. When the oven is on, heated air will escape through it. A vent IS needed for air circulation in the oven during baking You can cook on this surface unit while the overt is on. A warm pan of food will stay warm on this unit while the oven is on. It may be warm enough to melt butter. too Do not try to save heat or energy by blocking the vent. Poor baking can result, Plastic utensils may melt if they are over the vent while the oven is on. The optional rotisserie If you would like a rotissene with your oven, you can order a kit from your dealer Easy installation instructions come with the kit. Oven vents through right rear surface unit. 9 Your continuous Liquids spread on rough surfaces; bead up on smooth surfaces. 10 upper oven How a Continuous Cleaning Oven Works: A standard oven has walls with a smooth porcelain enamel finish. A Continuous Cleaning Oven also has a porcelain enamel finish with one important difference: instead of being smooth. like glass, the walls of a Contrnuous Cleaning Oven are a little rougher.. like the surface of a brick. A fat spatter will form a solid drop on a smooth surface. But on the rougher surface in a Continuous Cleaning Oven. a fat spatter spreads out to a very thin layer Think of the difference between a drop of water on a piece of waxed paper and one on a paper towel. The water on the waxed paper WIII stay together in a bead. The water on the rougher paper towel will spread out over a larger area. This is about what happens to a fat spatter In a Continuous Cleaning Oven. Instead of a bead of fat that turns tnto black charred material when heated. the fat spatter spreads out. Then. when the oven is used for baking and roasting, the fat gradually burns away. The rougher surface returns to a presentably clean condition. This ISa gradual process it does not happen right away. The walls continuously clean themselves, but only when the oven is set for medium to high temperatures during baking or roasting. The oven can be presentably clean with little or no hand cleaning.. .depending on how it is used The continuous cleaning process does not apply to uncoated parts like the oven wrndow. and door lining. Soils that are removed. _.and those that are not: Fat spatters from meat roasting. oven frying and broiling are the usual oven soils. They can be continuously cleaned away most of the time. Spillovers from pies and casseroles. sugars, and starches. and other soils that fall to the bottom of the oven are very hard to remove. That is why heavy-duty aluminum foil is placed on the bottom of the oven. It helps catch these spillovers and the foil can be replaced when necessary. I Foil should be flat on the bottom so should the feet on the element. cleaning Caring for your Continuous Cleaning Oven: 1. Follow trusted rectpes for baking. roasting and broiling. They will give time. temperature and pan recommendations to help avoid smoke. spatter and spillovers. 2. Keep heavy-duty aluminum foil on the bottom of the oven. If foil is not used, and something spills over, it may leave a permanent stain. 3. The oven racks should be kept clean with hot sudsy water. Use a soapy steel-wool pad or plastic scouring pad to remove stubborn spots. Rinse well and dry with a soft cloth. 4. The oven window should also be kept clean with hot. sudsy water. Do not use a soapy steel-wool pad on the window. Rinse well and dry with a soft cloth. Replacing aluminum foil on the oven bottom: You can use the heavy-duty l&inch (45 cm) aluminum foil found in most grocery stores Or you can order an aluminum foil kit (Part Number 241430) from y’our Whirlpool Dealer. 1. When cuting the foil. make sure it is long enough to cover the bottom with enough left over to start up both sides. 2 Make sure the bake element is cool. Lift it far enough to raise its feet from the bottom of the oven (You may have to remove an oven rack ) 3. Slide the foil sheet under the bake element. Make sure it is centered and long enough to start up the sides. 4. When you put the bake element back down. make sure all the feet rest solidly on the foil and that the foil is smoothed out across the bottom of the oven. If the feet on the element are not solidly on the foil. the oven may not bake properly If results aren’t what you expect: Remember. the oven keeps itself presentably clean at normal baking temperatures. If you do very little baking, but a lot of broiling. you may see fat spatters on the oven walls and door. This is because broiling will add new spatters faster than old ones can be burned off. In some cases. you may want to clean the oven by hand. Hand-cleaning the Continuous Cleaning Oven: 1. Wash with hot. soapy water and rinse well. 2 Use a soapy steel wool pad or plastic scouring pad for more stubborn spots. 3. Do not use commercial oven cleaners. These cleaners may collect in the rough porcelain enamel finish The fumes from commercial oven cleaner trapped in the porcelain enamel surface may be harmful. NOTE: The upper oven door lining is chrome plated. It doesn’t have the special porcelain enamel finish and is not continuous cleaning. Using the self-cleaning lower oven cycle The lower Self-Cleanrng Oven uses hrgh heat that actually burns away oven soil, For best results and safety. read this section carefully. Make sure you understand how everything works before you set your oven to “CLEAN.” Things to do before you start: l Some areas may not be cleaned during the Self-Cleaning cycle: -The frame around the oven opening. -The door. especially the part around the outside of the oven seal. Soil on these areas will be more difficult to remove after the SelfCleaning cycle. Use hot water and detergent. or a soapy steel-wool pad. Rinse well. l Do not move or bend the fiberglass oven door seal. Do not try to clean it by hand. l The high heat during the cleanrng cycle will discolor the racks and take the shine off them if they are left in the oven during the SelfCleanrng cycle If you want your oven racks to stay shiny and bright. take them out before starting the cleaning cycle. If you do clean the racks during the cleaning cycle, read the “Specral Tips” at the end of this section l Don’t leave any pots or pans in the oven during cleaning. They won’t be able to stand the high heat. l Wipe up spillovers. borlovers and grease that hasn’t baked onto the bottom of the oven. This will help reduce smoking during the cleaning cycle. l The porcelain reflector bowls may be cleaned in the oven. Put the oven racks on the second and top rack guides. Wipe the reflector bowls and put hue reflector bowls upside down on each rack. For best results, they should not touch each other or the oven walls. Chrome trim rings must not be cleaned in the oven. 11 Turn on the vent hood fan or other kitchen vents durtng the cleaning cycle. This will help remove smoke, odor and heat that are normal during the cycle. l If you have a rotisserie. be sure the motor socket cover is closed. Setting the controls to the Self- Cleaning cycle: l 1. Set the Lower Oven Selector Knob to “CLEAN.” 2. Set the Lower Oven Temperature Control Knob to “CLEAN.” 3. The clock and dials for start and stop time should all have the right time of day. 4. Push in on the Stop Time Knob and set it ahead as many hours as you want for the cleaning cycle. For a lightly soiled oven, two hours ahead may be enough. For heavy soil, three hours ahead may be about right. If some soil does not get removed during the cleaning cycle, see “Special Tips” later in this section. 5. Lock the oven door by moving the Lock Lever all the way to the right. When it is all the way over, the Clean Light will come on. If the Clean Light doesn’t come on, the lever isn’t all the way over and the cleaning cycle won’t start. When the clean light comes on, the oven starts the cleaning cycle. About 20 minutes later. the Lock Light will come on. It will stay on during the cleaning cycle. The door cannot be unlocked while the Lock Light is on. 12 6. The oven will shut off when the preset stop time is reached, but the oven door will stay locked until the oven has cooled. When the Lock Light turns off, turn the Oven Selector Knob and Oven Temperature Control Knob to “OFF.” This turns off the Clean Light. Now, move the Lock Lever back to the left. Do notjorce the Lock Lever. If it doesn’t want to move easily, wait until it does. With the Lock Lever all the way to the left, the oven door can be opened. 7. When the oven has cooled off all the way, wipe out any residue or ashes from the bottom. How the Self-Cleaning cycle works: l When oven controls are set to “CLEAN.” the oven gets much hotter than it does for cooking This high heat causes soil on the insjde oven usaIls to burn off. or break up and mostly disappear. While this is happening. a special part in the oven ljent helps remove smoke. Do not COLVI-the right-rear surface unit during the cleaning cycle. l The chart belo\~ shows about what happens during a 2-hour SelfCleaning cycle Any time less than that shortens only the cleaning cycle, not thti heating and cooling times l Don’t touch the range dunng the cleaning cycle.. it will be hot. l When the cleaning cycle 15over. you will find some fine ashes in the oven The amount of ash depends upon the amount of soil there was ill the oven When the oven is cool, clean up all that is left with a damp cloth. cleanser, or a soap-filled steel-wool pad. l Dunng the cleaning cycle. you may hear the sounds of metal heating and cooling These are normal sounds. and a lot like those you can heal- when tthe oxen heats for regular cooking. SELF-CLEAN OVEN-LIGHT SOIL CYCLE 1000 1000 800 800 600 600 400 400 200 200 1 hr. 1% hr 2 hr. 241 hr. 13 Special tips: l If the cleaning cycle doesn‘t get the oven as clean as it should be. the ttme set for cleaning was probably not long enough. Set the cleaning time longer next time. You can set it for more than 3 hours, if you want. l Plan to clean the oven before it gets too heavily soiled. Otherwise, you may notice more smoke than you would expect coming from the oven vent. And, the cleaning cycle has to be longer to clean a very soiled oven. l There WIII be normal “heat odors” during the cleaning cycle. To help get rid of them. keep the kttchen well ventilated. @To stop the cleaning cycle after it has started: -Turn the Stop Time Knob to the right time of day. -Turn the Oven Selector Knob to “OFF.” -Turn the Oven Temperature Control Knob to “OFF” -Unlock and open the oven door when the Lock Lights turns off. NOTE: Do not force the Lock Lever. Wait until tt moves easily. l Do not use foil or other oven liners in your Self-Cleaning Oven l Don’t use commericial oven cleaners in your Self-Cleantng Oven l If racks are left in the oven during a cleantng cycle. they WIII lose their shine. dtscolor and be harder to slide In and out. TO make them slide easier, polish the edges of the racks and rack guides with a soap-filled steel wool pad. rinse well. and wipe on a thin coatrng of salad oil. Cleaning Pull knob and trim ring straight out. Remember how the spring goes. 14 and caring for vour range Your range is designed to be easy to clean You will usually wipe off spills and spatters when they happen. but you will sometimes want to clean under and behind the control knobs and surface units Thts section will tell you how to remove those. and wahatto use when cleaning.
