IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
CLEANING YOUR OVEN
YOUR OVEN
• Never use your appliance for warming or
heating the room.
• Use care when opening oven door, lower
oven door, or warmer drawer (some
models). Stand to the side of the oven
when opening the door of a hot oven. Let
hot air or steam escape before you
remove or replace food in the oven.
• Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed.
Touching surfaces in this area when the
oven is on may cause severe burns. Do not
place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or
near the oven vent. These items can melt
or ignite.
• Placement of oven racks - Always place
oven racks in desired location while oven
is cool. If rack must be moved while oven
in hot, do not let potholder contact hot
heating element in oven. Use potholders
and grasp the rack with both hands to
reposition. Remove all bakeware and
utensils before moving the rack.
• Do not use a broiler pan without its insert.
Broiler pans and inserts allow dripping fat
to drain away from the high heat of the
broiler. Do not cover the broiler insert with
aluminum foil; exposed fat and grease
could ignite.
• Protective liners - Do not use aluminum
foil to line surface unit drip bowls or oven
bottoms, except as suggested in the
manual. Improper installation of these
liners may result in a risk of electric shock,
or fire.
• Do not cook food on the oven bottom.
Always cook in proper bakeware and
always use the oven racks.
Before manually cleaning any
part of the oven, be sure all controls are
turned off and the oven is cool. Cleaning a
hot oven can cause burns.
Clean the oven regularly to keep all parts
free of grease that could catch fire. Do not
allow grease to accumulate.
Always follow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for use of kitchen cleaners
and aerosols. Be aware that excess residue
from cleaners and aerosols may ignite
causing damage and injury.
SELF-CLEANING OVENS (some models)
• Clean only the parts listed in this manual.
Before using self-clean, remove the broiler
pan, any food, utensils, and bakeware
from the oven. Remove oven racks unless
otherwise instructed.
• Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial
oven cleaner or oven liner protective
coating of any kind should be used in or
around any part of the oven.
• Do not clean door gasket. The door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage, or
move the gasket.
• Some birds are extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off during the self-clean
cycle of any oven. Move birds to another
well-ventilated room.
Important Safety Notice - The California
Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement
Act requires the governor of California to
publish a list of substances known to cause
cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive
harms, and it requires businesses to warn

Before Setting Oven Controls
Oven Vent Location
Arranging, Removing, and Replacing Racks
The oven vent is located above the control panel (Figure 1).
When the oven is on, warm air passes through this vent. This
venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and
good baking results. Do not block oven vent. Steam or moisture
may appear near the oven vent. This is normal.
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using
the oven. When cooking, the oven interior and exterior, and
oven racks will become very hot which can cause burns.
To arrange - always arrange the oven racks when the oven is
cool.
To remove - pull the rack forward until it stops. Lift up front of
rack and slide out.
Oven Vent
To replace - fit oven rack onto the rack guides on both sides of
oven walls. Tilt the front of oven rack upward and slide the rack
back into place. Be sure oven racks are level before using.:

When baking cakes using two oven racks, place racks in
positions 2 and 4 and position cake pans as shown (See
Figure 5).
•
Use positions 2 and 4 when baking cookies on multiple
pans.
•
Dark or dull pans absorb more heat than shiny bakeware
resulting in dark or overbrowning of foods. It may be
necessary to reduce the oven temperature or cook time to
prevent overbrowning of some foods. Dark pans are recommended for pies. Shiny pans are recommended for cakes,
cookies, and muffins.
•
•
Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) of space between cookware

The U.S. Department of Agriculture states, *Rare fresh beef is popular, but you should know that cooking it to only 140°F (60°C) means some food poisoning organisms
may survive.” (Source: Safe Food Book, Your Kitchen Guide, USDA Rev. June 1985.) The lowest temperature recommended by the USDA is 145°F (63°C) for medium rare
fresh beef. For well done 170°F (77ºC). All cook times shown are after 2 minutes of preheating.
Broiling is direct heat cooking and will produce some smoke. If smoke is excessive, place food further away from the element. Always watch food carefully to prevent
burning.

Oven Controls
Adjusting the Oven Temperature
Cleaning the Oven
Your appliance has been factory calibrated and tested to ensure
an accurate baking temperature. For the first few uses, follow
your recipe times and temperature recommendations carefully.
If you think the oven is cooking too hot or too cool for your
recipe times, you may adjust the control so the oven cooks hotter
or cooler than the temperature displayed.
Important: To help remove excessive spills from the oven bottom,
the lower element may be tilted up. Remove lowest oven rack
before attempting to raise the element. Handle the element only
when the oven is completely cool. Do not raise the element more
than 4 or 5 inches (See Figure 7).
Important note:
•
Do not use oven thermometers (such as those found in
grocery stores) to check the temperature settings inside the
oven. These oven thermometers may vary as much as 20ºF
to 40°F (11ºC to 23ºC) from actual temperatures.
•
If at any time during the process of adjusting the oven
temperature feature you decide not to make the change,
press STOP once before the acceptance beep tone.

Use a soft cloth and clean with mild dish detergent and water or a 50/50 solution of vinegar
and water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry and polish with a soft cloth. Glass
cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth first. Do not spray liquids directly on the oven
control and display area. Do not use large amounts of water on the control panel. Excess
water on the control area may cause damage to the appliance. Do not use other liquid
cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or paper towels. They will damage the finish.
Stainless Steel (some models)
Only use cleaners and polishes specifically manufactured for cleaning stainless steel. Always
rub in direction of metal grain to avoid damaging. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorine. Do not use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Polish with a lint-free cloth. Wipe
excess cleaner/polish off from the metal surface as bluish stains may occur during future
oven heating that cannot be removed. Clean heavier soils with hot, soapy water and a cloth
or sponge. Use clean water to rinse; use a cloth to dry.

Insert (available by mail order)
Door liner and body parts
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.
Oven interior
Remove oven racks from the oven cavity before cleaning the oven interior. Use a mild,
abrasive cleaner following manufacturer’s instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry.
Oven door
Use soap and water to thoroughly clean the top, sides, and front of the oven door. Rinse well.
You may use a glass cleaner on the outside door glass. Do not immerse the door in water. Do
not spray or allow water or the glass cleaner to enter the door vents. Do not use oven
cleaners, cleaning powders, or any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the outside of the
oven door.The oven gasket is essential for a good seal. It is located on the inner frame of the
door and visible when the door is opened. Do not clean the oven door gasket. On self clean
models, the oven door gasket is made of a woven material. Care should be taken not to rub,
damage, or remove this gasket.

Care and Cleaning
General Cleaning
Broiler Pan Cleaning Tips
Before manually cleaning any part of the oven, be sure all controls are
turned off and the oven is cool. Ammonia must be rinsed before
operating the oven. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear rubber gloves
when cleaning the appliance manually. Remove spillovers and heavy
soiling as soon as possible.
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.
Aluminum Foil, Aluminum Utensils, and Oven Liners
Replacing the Oven Lights
Never cover any slots, holes, or passages in the oven bottom or cover an
entire oven rack with materials such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks
air flow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
Aluminum foil linings may trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
The interior oven lights are located at the rear of the oven cavity and
covered with a glass shield. The glass shield must be in place whenever
the oven is in use (See Figure 10).
Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil or any other oven liners or
materials to line the oven bottom. The high heat of the oven can melt
these materials to the oven cavity and ruin the oven. These types of
materials can also reduce the effectiveness of the air circulation in the
oven and produce poor baking results.
•
•
Be sure the oven is unplugged or power is turned off and all parts are
cool before replacing oven light. Wear a leather-faced glove for
protection against possible broken glass. Do not allow your fingers to
touch the new bulb when replacing. This will shorten the life of the bulb.
Use a paper towel or cotton glove while handling the new bulb when
installing.
Aluminum foil - Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this
manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of
electric shock or fire.
Oven racks - Do not use aluminum foil to cover the oven racks.
Using a liner in the oven restricts the heat and air flow needed to
obtain the best possible cooking results for any oven.
Adhere to the following precautions when using spray oven cleaners:
•
•
Do not spray cleaner on the electrical controls or switches because
it could cause a short circuit and result in sparking or fire.
Do not spray any cleaner on the oven door trim or gasket, handles,
or any exterior surfaces of the oven, plastic or painted surfaces.
The cleaner can damage these surfaces.
1.
Turn electrical power off at the main source or unplug the
appliance
2.
Remove interior oven light shield by turning a quarter turn counterclockwise.
3.
Replace bulb with a new T-4 type Halogen 25 watt appliance
bulb.
4.
Replace glass oven light shield by rotating clockwise.
5.
Turn power back on again at the main source (or plug the
appliance back in).
6.
Be sure to reset the time of day on the clock.
Cleaning Exposed Bake Ovens
Figure 9: Exposed bake element in oven cavity
The bake element is located in the bottom of the oven cavity
(Figure 9). If the lower bake element is visible it may be tilted up
to allow easier access to the oven bottom for cleaning. Be
careful not to raise the element more than 4 or 5 inches from the
resting position. Remove the bottom oven rack before raising the
element.
