Using the self-cleaning oven.

Never force the latch handle. Forcing the handle will damage the door lock mechanism.


Wipe up heavy soil on the oven bottom.

Before a Clean Cycle

We recommend venting your kitchen with an open window or using a ventilation fan or hood during the first self-clean cycle.

Remove the shelves, broiler pan, broiler grid, all cookware and any aluminum foil from the oven.

The oven shelves can be self-cleaned, but they will darken, lose their luster and become hard to slide.

Soil on the front frame of the range and outside the gasket on the door will need to be cleaned by hand. Clean these areas with hot water, soap-filled steel-wool pads or cleansers such as Soft Scrub®. Rinse well with clean water and dry.

Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass material of the oven door gasket cannot withstand abrasion. It is essential for the gasket to remain intact. If you notice it becoming worn or frayed, replace it.

Wipe up any heavy spillovers on the oven bottom.

Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in place and the oven light is off.

IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any range. Move birds to another well ventilated room.

How to Set the Oven for Cleaning

Latch the door.

Turn the Oven Temperature knob to CLEAN.

On some models, you must push the knob in before turning.

Clean cycle time is normally 4 hours and 20 minutes. On models with COOK TIME and START TIME pads, you can change the clean time to between 3 hours and 5 hours, 59 minutes by using the HOUR and MIN. pads. The display will show the clean time counting down.

When the CLEAN light flashes, slide the latch handle to the left, and turn the Oven Temperature knob to OFF.

To stop a clean cycle, turn the Oven Temperature knob to OFF. Wait until the oven has cooled and unlatch the door.

While the oven is self-cleaning, you can press the CLOCK pad to display the time of day. To return to the clean countdown, press the COOK TIME ON/OFF pad.
