Important Safety Information
Electrical Requirements
240-volt, 60 Hertz, 40 amp, individual circuit which is
properly grounded, polarized and protected by a circuit
breaker or fuse.
Extension Cord
Due to possible pinching during installation, extension
cords should not be used on products.
Receiving Oven
• Authorized servicer must install the range, in
accordance with the Installation Instructions.
Adjustments and service should be performed only by
authorized servicer.
• Plug range into a 240–volt grounded outlet only. Do not
remove round grounding prong from the plug. If in doubt
about grounding of the home electrical system, it is
consumers responsibility and obligation to have an
ungrounded outlet replaced with a properly grounded
three-prong outlet in accordance with the National

this appliance.
• Insure all packing materials are removed from the range
before operating it, to prevent fire or smoke damage
should the packing material ignite.
• With prolonged use of a range, high floor temperatures
could result. Many floor coverings will not be able to
withstand this kind of use. Never install range over vinyl
tile or linoleum that cannot withstand high
temperatures. Never install range directly over
carpeting.
Using the Oven
• Do not leave children alone or unattended where a
range is hot or in operation. They could be seriously
burned.
• Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on the
door. They could damage the range and cause severe
personal injury.
• Wear proper apparel. Loose fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn when using oven. Flammable
material could ignite if brought in contact with hot oven
surfaces which may cause severe burns.
• Never use range for warming or heating a room. This
may cause burns, injuries, or a fire.
• Do not use water on grease fires.
• Do not let grease or other flammable materials collect
in or around range.
• Do not repair or replace any part of range unless it is
recommended in this manual.
• Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders
used on hot surfaces may result in a burn from steam.
Do not use a towel or a bulky cloth as a potholder.
• Never leave range unattended while cooking. Boilovers
can cause smoking and may ignite.
© 2005 Maytag Services
• Only certain types of glass/ceramic, earthenware, or
other glazed utensils are suitable for oven use.
Unsuitable utensils may break due to sudden
temperature change.
• Use care when opening oven door. Let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
• Do not heat unopened food containers in oven.
Buildup of pressure may cause a container to burst and
result in injury.
• Keep range vent ducts unobstructed.
• Place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool.
If a rack must be moved while oven is hot, use a dry
potholder.
• Do not use aluminum foil to line oven bottom or racks.
Aluminum foil can cause a fire and will seriously affect
baking results, and damage to porcelain surfaces.
• Do not touch interior surfaces of oven during or
immediately after use. Do not let clothing or other
flammable materials come in contact with bake or broil
elements.
• Other areas of the oven can become hot enough to
cause burns, such as vent openings, window, oven
door and oven racks.
• To avoid steam burns, do not use a wet sponge or cloth
to wipe up spills on hot cooking area.
• Do not store combustible or flammable materials, such
as gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids near
or in oven.
• Do not clean oven door gasket located on back of the
door. Gasket is necessary to seal the oven and can be
damaged as a result of rubbing or being moved.
• Do not drape towels or any materials on oven door
handles. These items may ignite causing a fire.
!
CAUTION
Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets
above range. Children may climb on oven to reach
these items and become seriously injured.
Baking, Broiling, and Roasting
• Do not use oven area for storage.
• Stand back from range when opening a hot oven door.
Hot air or steam can cause burns to hands, face, and
eyes.
• Use only glass cookware appropriate for use in electric
ovens.
• Always remove broiler pan from oven when finished
broiling. Grease left in pan can catch fire if oven is used
without removing grease from the broiler pan.
• Make sure broiler pan is placed correctly to reduce any
possibility of grease fires.
• Should a grease fire occur in the broiler pan, turn off
oven, and keep oven door closed until fire burns out.

Important Safety Information
Surface Cooking Units
Glass/Ceramic Cooking Surfaces
1. Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped
with one or more surface units of different size. Select
utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the
surface unit heating element. The use of undersized
utensils will expose a portion of the heating element
to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing.
Proper relationship of utensil to burner will also
improve efficiency.
1. Do Not Cook on Broken Cooktop—If cooktop should
break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may
penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of
electric shock. Contact a qualified technician
immediately.
2. Never Leave Surface Units Unattended—Boilover
causes smoking/greasy spillovers that may ignite.
2. Clean Cooktop with Caution—If a wet sponge or cloth
is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be
careful to avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can
produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
Ventilating Hoods
3. Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are In
Place—Absence of these pans or bowls during
cooking may subject wiring or components
underneath to damage.
1. Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently—Grease should
not be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.
4. Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line
oven bottom. Improper installation of these liners may
result in a risk of electrical shock or fire.
5. Glazed Cooking Utensils—Do not use glass, ceramic,
earthware or other glazed utensils. They can damage
or break smoothtop due to sudden change in
temperature.
6. Utensil Handles Should be Turned Inward and Not
Extend Over Adjacent Surface Units—To reduce the
risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and
spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil,
the handle of a utensil should be turned inward, and
does not extend over adjacent surface units.
7. Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements—Heating
elements should never be immersed in water.
Ovens
1. Use Care When Opening Door—Let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
2. Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers—Buildup of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in
injury.
2. When flaming foods under the hood, turn the fan off.
The fan, if operating, may spread the flame.
Precautions
• Do not cook food directly on range top surface, always
use cookware.
• Do not mix household cleaning products. Chemical
mixtures may interact with hazardous results.
• Do not put plastic items on warm cooking areas.
• Do not slide rough objects across range top surface.
• Do not leave fat heating unless you remain nearby. Fat
can ignite if overheated by spilling onto hot surfaces.
• Do not allow pots to boil dry as this can cause damage
to cooking surface and pan.
• Do not use range top surface as a cutting board.
Product Safety Devices
Safety devices and features have been engineered into
the product to protect consumer and servicer. Safety
devices must never be removed, bypassed, or altered in
such a manner as to defeat the purpose for which they
were intended.
Grounded Oven Frame
3. Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.
4. Placement of Oven Racks—Always place oven racks
in desired location while oven is cool. If rack is
removed while oven is hot, do not let potholder
contact hot heating element in oven.
Self-Cleaning Ovens
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Clean Only Parts Listed in Manual.
4. Before Self-Cleaning the Oven—Remove broiler pan
and other utensils.

"Action Taken" applies as long as the condition exists. If the condition is corrected, the control recovers.
Flash rate: 0.2 seconds on, 0.1 second off. Pressing any key clears the display until the fault clears and is re-triggered.
"Action Taken" applies until there is a POR (Power On Reset ["hard reset"]).
If the control believes the door is locked, unlock it when the function cancels and the cavity temperature cools.
Special conditions for latch faults (9dxx):
•
A known good unlock position is defined as when the unlock switch reads closed and lock switch reads open.
•
A known good lock position is defined as when the unlock switch reads open and lock switch reads closed.
•
A faulted switch means the switch input is reading an invalid state, neither open nor closed.
•
If at POR, the latch is not at a known good unlock position.
•
Affected DLBs (Double Line Breaks) and loads are disabled during detection.
•
If the control is in a known good unlock position and the lock switch becomes faulted:
•
The control will not fault.
•
If a function requiring latch movement is attempted while the lock switch is faulted, the control will sound an error
tone and the function will be disabled.

Most local Building Regulations and Codes require that all
electrical wiring be done by licensed electricians. All
wiring should conform to Local and National Electrical
Codes. This range requires a single phase three wire
120/240 or a 120/208 volt, 60 Hz, AC circuit. Wiring codes
require a separate circuit be run from the main entrance
panel to the range and that it be equipped with separate
disconnect switch and fuses, either in the main entrance
panel or in a separate switch and fuse box. In some
communities, a solid or flexible continuous armored
conduit must be used from main entrance panel to the
terminal box on the rear of the range. Others will permit
the termination of the range circuit at a polarized three or
four wire plug-in outlet placed at a convenient point near
the back of the range. The range is then connected to this
outlet through an approved range connector (pigtail)
fastened securely to the terminal block with proper strain
relief at the range and a three or four pronged plug at the
opposite end.

Important Safety Instructions
Never let a pan boil dry as this could damage the utensil
and the appliance.
or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot surface. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
If pan is smaller than element, a portion of the element will
be exposed to direct contact and could ignite clothing or
potholder.
Clean only parts listed in this guide.
Self-Clean Oven
Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic,
earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for
cooktop or oven service without breaking due to the sudden
change in temperature. Follow utensil manufacturer’s
instructions when using glass.
CAUTION
Do not leave racks, broiling pan, food or cooking utensils,
etc. in the oven during the self-clean cycle.
Turn pan handle toward center of cooktop, not out into the
room or over another surface element. This reduces the risk
of burns, ignition of flammable materials, or spillage if pan is
accidently bumped or reached by small children.
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.
Do not use oven cleaners or oven liners of any kind in or
around any part of the self-clean oven.
Cooktop
NEVER leave surface units unattended especially when using
high heat. An unattended boilover could cause smoking and
a greasy spillover can cause a fire.
Before self-cleaning the oven, remove broiler pan, oven
racks and other utensils, and wipe off excessive spillovers to
prevent excessive smoke or flare ups.
This appliance is equipped with different size surface elements. Select pans with flat bottoms large enough to cover
element. Fitting pan size to element will improve cooking
efficiency.
It is normal for the cooktop of the range to become hot
during a self-clean cycle. Therefore, touching the cooktop
during a clean cycle should be avoided.
Important Safety Notice and
Warning
GLASS-CERAMIC SURFACE: NEVER cook on broken
cooktop. If cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and
spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk
of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic
Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) requires the
Governor of California to publish a list of substances known
to the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive
harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposures to such substances.
Deep Fat Fryers
Use extreme caution when moving the grease pan or disposing of hot grease. Allow grease to cool before attempting to
move pan.
Users of this appliance are hereby warned that when the
oven is engaged in the self-clean cycle, there may be some
low-level exposure to some of the listed substances, including carbon monoxide. Exposure to these substances can be
minimized by properly venting the oven to the outdoors by
opening the windows and/or door in the room where the
appliance is located during the self-clean cycle.
Ventilating Hoods
Clean range hood and filters frequently to prevent grease or
other flammable materials from accumulating on hood or
filter and to avoid grease fires.
When flaming foods under the hood, turn the fan on.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING PET BIRDS: Never
keep pet birds in the kitchen or in rooms where the fumes
from the kitchen could reach. Birds have a very sensitive
respiratory system. Fumes released during an oven selfcleaning cycle may be harmful or fatal to birds. Fumes
released due to overheated cooking oil, fat, margarine and
overheated non-stick cookware may be equally harmful.
Cleaning Safety
Clean cooktop with caution. Turn off all controls and wait for
appliance parts to cool before touching or cleaning. Clean
with caution. Use care to avoid steam burns if a wet sponge

Surface Cooking
Dual Element (select models)
Surface Controls
Use to turn on the surface elements. An infinite choice of
heat settings is available from Low to High. The knobs can
be set on or between any of the settings.
The cooking surface has a dual element
located at the left front of the
smoothtop. This allows you to change
the size of the element.
Setting the Controls
The small element is operated on the left
side of the knob control. To operate the
entire element, use the right side of the knob control. The
control for both element sizes can be set anywhere between
Low and High.
1. Place pan on surface element.
2. Push in and turn the knob in either direction to the desired
heat setting.
• The control panel is marked to identify
which element the knob controls. For Front
example, the graphic at right indicates left front element.
Flex-ChoiceTM Element (select models)
The Flex-ChoiceTM element is a fully functioning
element that provides an ultra low Melt
heat setting for melting chocolate and
butter. It is located in the left rear position
3. There is an element indicator light on the control panel.
When any surface control knob is turned on, the light will
turn on. The light will turn off when all the surface elements are turned off.
The Melt setting is located between
2 and OFF. Heat settings outside of
this area function as a normal element,
with 2 (Low) to High settings.
4. After cooking, turn knob to OFF. Remove pan.
Suggested Heat Settings
The size and type of cookware, type and amount of food
being heated, and wattage of individual elements will
determine where to set the knob for cooking
operations. Some elements have a predetermined simmer and
melt setting that will require only minor adjustment up or
down depending on the food being prepared. The other
elements have settings printed around the knobs that are also
unique to those elements. Adjust the heat settings to the
numbers that give the desired cooking results. For information on cookware and other factors affecting heat settings,
refer to Cookware Recommendations on page 7 or the
“Cooking Made Simple” booklet. The following descriptions
will aid in choosing the settings that will give optimum results.
Note: When using the normal settings for preparing foods,
it may take a few minutes for the cooking area to cool to
the Melt heat setting.
Warming Center
Use the Warming Center to keep hot cooked foods warm,
such as vegetables and gravies.
Setting the Control:
1. Push in and turn the knob. Warming
temperatures are approximate and are
indicated on the control as Low, 2-10
and High. However, the control can be
set to any position between Low and
High.
Hold or Warm: Food maintains a temperature above 140°F
without continuing to cook. Food is initially hot and then heat
is reduced. Never use a hold or warm setting to reheat cold
food.
2. When done, turn the control to OFF and
remove food. The Hot Surface indicator light will go off
when the Warming Center surface has cooled.
Simmer: Food forms bubbles that barely break the
surface. Foods are between 185°F and 200°F. A simmer
setting can also be used to steam or poach foods or continue
cooking covered foods.
Notes:
• Never warm food for longer than one hour (eggs for 30
minutes), as food quality may deteriorate.
Slow Boil: Food forms bubbles at a moderate pace. A slow
boil setting can also be used for most frying and for maintaining the cooking of large amounts of liquids.
• Do not heat cold food on the Warming Center.
Boil: Liquid forms bubbles at a rapid pace. A fast boil setting
can also be used to brown meat, stir fry, sauté, and heat oil
for frying before turning to a lower setting. The highest 3 or 4
settings on the knob are used for these cooking
operations. The highest setting is always used to bring water
to a boil. Some elements offer an even higher speed for
boiling liquids.
• Heat settings will vary depending on type and amount of
food. Always hold food at proper food temperatures. USDA
recommends food temperatures between 140°-170° F.

• Cooktop may emit light smoke and odor the first few
times the cooktop is used. This is normal.
• Smoothtop cooktops retain heat for a period of time
after the element is turned off. Turn the elements off
a few minutes before food is completely cooked and use
the retained heat to complete cooking. When the hot
surface light turns off, the cooking area will be cool
enough to touch. Because of the way they retain heat, the
smoothtop elements will not respond to changes in
settings as quickly as coil elements.
Warming Center Notes:
• Use only cookware and dishes recommended as safe for
oven and cooktop use.
• In the event of a potential boilover, remove the pan from
the cooking surface.
• Always use oven mitts when removing food from the
Warming Center as utensils will be hot.
• Never attempt to lift the cooktop.
• All foods should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to
maintain food quality.
• The smoothtop surface may appear discolored when it is
hot. This is normal and will disappear when the surface
cools.
• When warming pastries and breads the cover should have
an opening to allow moisture to escape.
• Do not use plastic wrap to cover foods. Plastic may melt
on to the surface and be very difficult to clean.
Cooking Areas
The cooking areas on your range are identified by permanent
circles on the smoothtop surface. For most efficient cooking,
fit the pan size to the element size.
• Be very careful not to allow aluminum foil to touch the
cooktop. If foil melts, do not use the cooktop. Call an
authorized Maytag servicer.
Pans should not extend more than 1-inch beyond the
cooking area.
cont.
CAUTION
BEFORE COOKING
• Always place a pan on the surface unit before you turn it
on. To prevent damage to range, never operate surface
unit without a pan in place.
• NEVER use the cooktop as a storage area for food or
cookware.
AFTER COOKING
• Make sure surface unit is turned off.
• Clean up messy spills as soon as possible.
OTHER TIPS
• If cabinet storage is provided directly above cooking
surface, limit it to items that are infrequently used and can
be safely stored in an area subjected to heat. Temperatures may be unsafe for items such as volatile liquids,
cleaners or aerosol sprays.
• NEVER leave any items, especially plastic items, on the
cooktop. The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable
items, melt or soften plastics, or increase pressure in
closed containers causing them to burst.
• NEVER allow aluminum foil, meat probes or any other
metal object, other than a pan on a surface element, to
contact heating elements.
• NEVER store heavy items above the cooktop that could fall
and damage it.
DURING COOKING
• Be sure you know which knob controls which surface
unit. Make sure you turned on the correct surface unit.
• Begin cooking on a higher heat setting then reduce to a
lower setting to complete the operation. Never use a
high heat setting for extended cooking.
• NEVER allow a pan to boil dry. This could damage the
pan and the appliance.
• NEVER touch cooktop until it has cooled. Expect some
parts of the cooktop, especially around the surface units,
to become warm or hot during cooking. Use potholders
to protect hands.

Surface Cooking
To Prevent Marks and Scratches
When a control is turned on, a glow can be seen through the
smoothtop surface. The element will cycle on and off to
maintain the preset heat setting, even on Hi.
• Do not use glass pans. They may scratch the surface.
• Never place a trivet or wok ring between the surface and
pan. These items can mark or etch the top.
For more information on cookware, refer to Cookware
Recommendations on page 7 and “Cooking Made Simple”
booklet included with your range.
SINGLE
ELEMENT
• Do not slide aluminum pans across a hot surface. The pans
may leave marks which need to be removed promptly. (See
Cleaning, page 19.)
WARMING CENTER
• Make sure the surface and the pan bottom are clean before
turning on to prevent scratches.
DUAL ELEMENT
(SELECT MODELS)
• To prevent scratching or damage to the glass-ceramic top,
do not leave sugar, salt or fats on the cooking area. Wipe
the cooktop surface with a clean cloth or paper towel
before using.
FLEX-CHOICETM
ELEMENT
Hot Surface Light
• Never slide heavy metal pans across the surface since
these may scratch.
The Hot Surface indicator light is located on
the control panel. The light will be illuminated
when any cooking area is hot. It will remain
on, even after the control is turned off, until the area has
cooled.
To Prevent Stains
• Never use a soiled dish cloth or sponge to clean the
cooktop surface. A film will remain which may cause stains
on the cooking surface after the area is heated.
Tips to Protect the
Smoothtop Surface
• Continuously cooking on a soiled surface may/will result in
a permanent stain.
Cleaning (see page 19 for more information)
• Before first use, clean the cooktop.
To Prevent Other Damage
• Clean your cooktop daily or after each use. This will keep
your cooktop looking good and can prevent damage.
• Do not allow plastic, sugar or foods with high sugar content
to melt onto the hot cooktop. Should this happen, clean
immediately. (See Cleaning, page 19.)
• If a spillover occurs while cooking, immediately clean the
spill from the cooking area while it is hot to prevent a tough
cleaning chore later. Using extreme care, wipe spill with a
clean dry towel.
• Never let a pan boil dry as this will damage the surface and
pan.
• Never use cooktop as a work surface or cutting board.
• Never cook food directly on the surface.
• Do not allow spills to remain on the cooking area or the
cooktop trim for a long period of time.
• Do not use a small pan on a large element. Not only does
this waste energy, but it can also result in spillovers burning
onto the cooking area which requires extra cleaning.
• Never use abrasive cleansing powders or scouring pads
which will scratch the cooktop.
• Do not use non-flat specialty items that are oversized or
uneven such as round bottom woks, rippled bottom and/or
oversized canners and griddles.
• Never use chlorine bleach, ammonia or other cleansers not
specifically recommended for use on glass-ceramic.
• Do not use foil or foil-type containers. Foil may melt onto
the glass. If metal melts on the cooktop, do not use. Call an
authorized Maytag Servicer.

Avoid
Flat, smooth-bottom Pans with grooved or warped bottoms.
pans.
Pans with uneven bottoms do not cook
efficiently and sometimes may not
boil liquid.
Using the right cookware can prevent many problems, such
as food taking longer to cook or achieving inconsistent
results. Proper pans will reduce cooking times, use less
energy, and cook food more evenly.
Heavy-gauge pans.
Very thin-gauge metal or glass pans.
Pans smaller or larger than the
element by 1 inch.
See if your pans are flat.
Pans that are the
same size as the
element.
The Ruler Test:
Secure handles.
Cookware with loose or broken handles.
Heavy handles that tilt the pan.
Tight-fitting lids.
Loose-fitting lids.
Flat bottom woks.
Woks with a ring-stand bottom.
Flat Pan Tests
1. Place a ruler across the bottom of the pan.
2. Hold it up to the light.
3. Little or no light should be visible under the ruler.
The Bubble Test:
1. Put 1 inch of water in the pan. Place on cooktop and turn
control to High.
Canning and Oversize
Cookware
2. Watch the formation of the bubbles as the water heats.
Uniform bubbles mean good performance, and uneven
bubbles indicate hot spots and uneven cooking.
All canners and large pots must have flat bottoms and
must be made from heavy-gauge materials. This is critical
on smoothtop surfaces. The base must not be more than
1 inch larger than the element.
See “Cooking Made Simple” booklet for more information.
When canners and pots do not meet these standards, cooking
times may be longer, and cooktops may be damaged.
Some canners are designed with smaller bases for use on
smoothtop surfaces.
When canning, use the High heat setting only until the
water comes to a boil or pressure is reached in the canner.
Reduce to the lowest heat setting that maintains the boil or
pressure. If the heat is not turned down, the cooktop may be
damaged.
See “Cooking Made Simple” booklet for more information.

Care & Cleaning
6. Wipe up sugary and acidic spillovers such as sweet
potatoes, tomato, or milk-based sauces. Porcelain enamel
is acid-resistant, not acid-proof. The porcelain finish may
discolor if acidic spills are not wiped up before a self-clean
cycle.
Self-Clean Oven
CAUTION
• It is normal for parts of the range to become hot during a
self-clean cycle.
To set Self-Clean:
• To prevent personal injury and damage to the oven door
do not attempt to open door when “LOCK” is displayed.
Note: Oven temperature must be below 400° F to program
a clean cycle.
• Avoid touching cooktop, door, window or oven vent area
during a clean cycle.
1. Close the oven door.
• Do not use commercial oven cleaners on the oven finish
or around any part of the oven. They will damage the
finish or parts.
2. Move door lock lever right to the locked position.
The self-clean cycle uses above-normal cooking temperatures
to automatically clean the oven interior. Do not force the oven
door or lock lever open. This may result in exposure to high
temperatures and be a burn hazard.
3. Press the Clean pad.
• “CLEAN” flashes in the display.
It is normal for flare-ups, smoking, or flaming to occur during
cleaning if the oven is heavily soiled. It is better to clean the
oven regularly rather than to wait until there is a heavy buildup of soil in the oven.
If the door is not closed, beeps will sound and “DOOR” will
display. If the door is not closed within 45 seconds, the
self-cleaning operation will be canceled and the display
will return to the time of day.
During the cleaning process, the kitchen should be well
ventilated to get rid of normal odors associated with cleaning.
4. Press the More+ or Less- pad.
• “CL-M” (Medium Soil, 3 hours) is displayed.
5. Press the More+ or Less- pad to scroll through
the self-cleaning settings.
Before Self-Cleaning

2. Remove broiler pan, all pans, and oven racks from the
oven. The oven racks will discolor and may not slide easily
after a self-clean cycle if they are not removed.
CL-L” (Light Soil, 2 hours)
Choosing the soil level of the oven automatically programs
the self-cleaning time.
3. Clean oven frame, door frame, area outside of gasket, and
around the opening in the door gasket with a nonabrasive
cleaner such as Bon Ami* or detergent and water. The
self-cleaning process does not clean these areas. They
should be cleaned to prevent soil from baking on during
the clean cycle. (The gasket is the
seal around the oven door and
window.)
6. After four seconds, the oven will start cleaning.
• The cleaning time will start counting down in the display.
• “LOCK” will appear in the display.
• “CLEAN” will appear in the display.
To Delay a Self-Clean Cycle:
4. To prevent damage, do not clean or
rub the gasket around the oven
door. The gasket is designed to
seal in heat during the clean cycle.
1. Press the Delay pad.
• “DELAY” flashes.
• 00:00 will appear in the display.
5. Wipe up excess grease or spillovers from the oven bottom.
This prevents excessive smoking, flare-ups or flaming
during the clean cycle.
2. Press the More+ or Less- pad to set the
amount of time you want to delay the
cycle. Delay time can be set from ten
minutes (00:10) to 11 hours, 59 minutes
(11:59).

Sounds
Choosing the soil level of the oven automatically programs
the self-cleaning time.
As the oven heats, you may hear sounds of metal parts
expanding and contracting. This is normal and will not
damage the oven.
6. After four seconds, CLEAN, DELAY and LOCK will appear

will turn off. The door can then be opened. Move door lock
lever to the left to unlock.
Some soil may leave a light gray, powdery ash. Remove
it with a damp cloth. If soil remains after wiping, that means
the clean cycle was not long enough. The soil will be removed during the next clean cycle.
If the oven has already been set for a clean
cycle and you wish to set a delay:
1. Press the Delay pad.
If oven racks were left in the oven and do not slide
smoothly after a clean cycle, wipe racks and rack supports
with a small amount of vegetable oil to make them easier to
move.
• “DELAY” flashes.
• 00:00 will appear in the display.
2. Press the More+ or Less- pad to set the
amount of time you want to delay the cycle.
Fine lines may appear in the porcelain because it went
through heating and cooling. This is normal and will not
affect performance.
After four seconds, CLEAN, DELAY and LOCK will appear
in the display to show that the oven is set for a delayed
clean operation. The delay time is displayed.
A white discoloration may appear after cleaning if acidic
or sugary foods were not wiped up before the self-clean
cycle. This discoloration is normal and will not affect performance.
When the Self-Clean cycle starts:
• “DELAY” will turn off.
• The clean time will appear in the display.

To cancel the Self-Clean cycle:
• If the oven door is left open, “DOOR” will flash in the
display and a signal will beep until the door is closed
and the Clean pad is pressed again.
Press the CANCEL pad.
• All words disappear from the display.
• All functions are canceled.
• If more than five seconds elapse between pressing the
Clean pad and the More+ or Less- pad, the program will
automatically return to the previous display.
• The time of day appears in the display.
• The oven door will be damaged if the oven door is
forced to open when “LOCK” is still displayed.
