LOWER COOK
POWERS
~__~~
For best results, some recipes call for lower Cook Powers. Lowering the Cook Power
slows the cooking. The lower the Cook Power, the slower the cooking. Each number
pad on your microwave
oven stands for a different percentage
of Cook Power. Many
recipes in Your MICRO MENUS, Cookbook
tell You, by number, which Cook Power to
use. Recipes in other books and magazines
may tell You by name (HI, MED, LO, etc.) or
by percentage
(1 O%, 50%, 80%, etc.).
The following chart gives You the percentage
of Cook Power each number pad
stands for, and the Cook Power name usually used.

Hot air and moisture escape
from the lower oven through a

OptSod Accessories
ROTISSERIE
It you would like a rotisserie for your lower oven, you can order a kit (Part No.
261881) from your dealer, The kit includes easy installation
inStrUCtiOnS.
CANNING KIT (Part No. 242905)
The large diameter
of most water-bath
or pressure canners combined
with high
heat settings for long periods of time can shorten the life of regular surface units and
cause damage
to the cooktop.
If you plan to use the cooktop for canning, we recommend
the installation
of a
Canning Kit. Order the kit from your Whirlpool Dealer or Tech-Care Service Company.
Use only flat-bottomed
utensils for best results and to prevent damage
to the
range Specialty
items with rounded or ridged bottoms [woks, ridged bottom canners
or tea kettles] are not recommended.

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 trim ring gets discolored,
some of the
utensils used may not be flat enough.
Or
some may be too large for the surface unit.
In either case, some of the heat that is meant
to go into or around a utensil goes down
and heats the trim ring. This extra heat can
discolor it.

THE LOWER OVEN SELF-CLERNING CYCLE
The lower oven self-cleaning
cycle uses very hlgh heat to burn away
soil. Before you start, make sure you understand
exactly how to use
the cycle safely.
BEFORE YOU START
1.
Clean areas that may not be cleaned
during the cycle. Use hot water and detergent or a soapy steel-wool pad on...
Clean Frame
l the frame
around the oven
l the inside
of the door, especially
the part
outside the oven seal.
DO NOT trv to clean the fiberglass seal. DO
NOT move It or bend It.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Remove any pots or pans you may have
stored in the oven. They can’t stand the
high heat.
Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This will
help reduce smoke during the cleaning
&%z.sure
the motor socket cover is
closed if your oven has a rotisserie.
Put oven racks on the top two guides. Put
two reflector bowls upslde down on
each. They should not touch each other or
the oven walls
SPECIAL CAUTIONS
DO NOT block the vent
during the cleaning
cycle
Air must move freely for
best results
Do NOT use commercial
oven cleaners in your oven.
Damage
to the porcelain
finish may occur.
DO NOT touch the oven
during the cleaning

It can burn you.
DO NOT force the Lock

to stay locked until the

SPECIAL TIPS
>,i
1.
Keep the kitchen well
ventilated
during the
cleaning
cycle to help
get rid of normal heat
odors and smoke.
4.
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 and rack guides with a soapy
steel-wool pad, rinse well, and wipe
on a thin coat of salad oil.
2.
3.
Clean the oven before
it gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning a very soiled
oven takes longer and
results in more smoke
than usual.
5.
If the cleaning
cycle
doesn’t get the oven as
clean as you
expected,
the cycle
may not have been set
long enough. Set the
cleaning
time longer
for heavier soil.
To stop the cleaning
cycle after it has
started:
l Turn the Stop flrne Knob

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

temperatures
and times during a selfcleaning
cycle set for two hours.
