Oven Cleaning Quick Reference Guide AquaLift™ Technology is an innovative cleaning solution that is activated with heat and water to release baked-on spills from the oven interior in less than 1 hour. This new cleaning technology is a low-heat, odor-free alternative to traditional self-cleaning options. STEP 1 STEP REMOVE all racks and accessories from the oven cavity and wipe excess soil. Use the scraper to remove additional easily-removed soils. 2 STEP POUR 2 cups (16 oz) of distilled or filtered water onto the bottom of the empty oven and close the oven door. IMPORTANT: Do not use cleansers, chemicals or other additives with the water. 3 PRESS CLEAN then press START. Cleaning action loosens baked-on residue from the oven bottom. Allow 40 minutes for cleaning and cool down. Some condensation will form on the window. When the cleaning cycle is complete, a beep will sound. Press CANCEL to end. STEP 4 REMOVE the residual water and loosened soils with a sponge or soft dry cloth immediately after the cycle is complete. Remove remaining soils with a non-scratch scrubbing sponge or plastic scraper. Additional cleaning cycles may be run to help remove stubborn soils. STEP 5 CLEAN the oven door and walls to avoid baked-on soil. Refer to the User Instructions for additional information.

W10400064A Helpful Tips Cleaning Your Ceramic Glass Cooktop Oven Preheat Time Clean your cooktop after each use with ceramic glass cooktop cleaner and apply with approved cooktop cleaning pads. Scrape off sugary spills while the cooktop is still warm. You may want to wear oven mitts while cleaning the cooktop. Remove stubborn stains with Cooktop Cleaner, Scraper and Cleaning Pads available in the Cooktop Care Kit (not included). Do not allow spills and stains to remain on the cooktop over night. Do not clean with steel wool, abrasive powder cleaners, chlorine bleach, rust remover, or ammonia as they will damage the glass. Razor scraper edges will not scratch the glass when used properly at a 45 degree angle to the surface. The standard time necessary to preheat your oven to 350° (177°C) is 10 to 15 minutes. Factors that have an impact on preheat times are: room temperature, starting oven temperature, and the number of oven racks. Unused oven racks can be removed prior to preheating your oven to reduce the preheat time. Cooktop Glass AquaLift™ Technology Cleaning The surface cooking area will glow red when an element is on. It may cycle on and off to maintain the selected heat level. Portions of the element may cycle on and off at different times on some elements. This is normal. The Warm Zone element area will not glow red when cycling on. Some condensation will form on the oven window during the cleaning cycle. This condensation will evaporate within 30 minutes. During the AquaLiftTM Technology cleaning cycle, some steam will come out of the bottom of the console. This is normal and part of the cleaning cycle. Make sure that the oven is level to ensure water is evenly distributed on the bottom of the oven cavity. Adjust the leveling feet as instructed in the Installation Instructions. Remove heavy spills before starting the cleaning cycle. Heavily soiled ovens may require a second cleaning cycle.

This will go away after the oven is used a few times. To eliminate these odors, it is recommended that you run the Bake cycle at 400°F (204°C) for 30 minutes prior to cooking for the first time. Convection During convection cooking, the bake, broil and convection elements cycle on and off in intervals to maintain the oven temperature, while the fan circulates the hot air. If the oven door is opened during convection cooking, the fan will turn off immediately. It will come back on when the oven door is closed. For additional information, refer to the User Instructions.
