Using the self-cleaningoven.

Never force the latch handle. Forcing the handle will damage the door lock mechanism. The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.

Wipe up heavy soil on the oven bottom.

Before a Clean Cycle

For the first self-cleancycle, we recommend venting your kitchen with an open window or using a ventilation fan or hood.

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.

Do not use commercial oven cleaners or oven protectors in or near the self-cleaningoven. A combination of any of these products plus the high clean cycle temperatures may damage the porcelain finish of the oven.

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-filledscouring 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.

CAUTION: The grates and drip pans (on some models) should never be cleaned in theself-cleaningoven.

Do not use commercial oven cleaners or oven protectors in or near the self-cleaningoven.

A combination of any of these products plus the high clean cycle temperatures may damage the porcelain finish of the oven.

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

Care and cleaning of the range.

Be sure electrical power is off and all surfaces are cool before cleaning any part of the range.

If your range is removed for cleaning, servicing or any reason, be sure the anti-tipdevice isre-engagedproperly when the range is replaced. Failure to take this precaution could result in tipping of the range and cause injury.

Grate

Drip pan (on some models)

Surface burner

CAUTION: Do not operate the cooktop without all burner parts, drip pans (on some models) and grates in place.

Standard Twin Burner Assemblies (on some models)

For cleaning information on sealed burners,

see section on next page. Sealed burner cooktops do not lift up.

On models with standard twin burners, the cooktop lifts up for easy access.

Turn all controls OFF before removing burner parts and drip pans (if so equipped).

The burner grates and drip pans (if so equipped) can be lifted off, making them easy to clean.

The holes in the surface burners of your range must be kept clean at all times for proper ignition and an even, unhampered flame.

You should clean the surface burners routinely, especially after bad spillovers, which could clog these holes.

Wipe off surface burners. If heavy spillover occurs, remove the surface burners from the range. Burners lift out for cleaning. Lift up the cooktop and then lift out the surface burners.

To remove burned-onfood, soak the surface burner in a solution of mild liquid detergent and hot water. Soak the surface burner for 20 to 30 minutes.

For more stubborn stains, use a cleanser like Soft Scrub® brand or Bon Ami® brand. Rinse well to remove any traces of the cleanser that might clog the surface burner openings.

Do not use steel wool because it will clog the surface burner openings and scratch the surface burners. If the holes become clogged, clean them with a sewing needle or twist-tie.

Before putting the surface burner back, shake out excess water and then dry it thoroughly by setting it in a warm oven for 30 minutes. Then place it back in the range, making sure it is properly seated and level.

Check the flame pattern of each burner. If the flames are “jumpy” (not steady), clean the holes again with a sewing needle or twist-tie.

Clean these holes thoroughly on each burner.

Drip Pans (on some models)

Remove the grates and lift out the drip pans. Drip pans can be cleaned in a dishwasher or by hand.

When replacing the drip pans, make sure they are in the correct position.

Place them in a covered container. Add 1/4 cup ammonia and let soak several hours or overnight. Wash, rinse well and dry.

CAUTION: Do not clean the drip pans in aself-cleaningoven.

Burner cap

Burner head

Drip pan (on some models)

Electrode Cooktop

Sealed Burner Assemblies (on some models)

Turn all controls OFF before removing the burner parts and drip pans (if so equipped).

The burner grates, caps, burner heads and drip pans (if so equipped) can be lifted off, making them easy to clean.

CAUTION: Do not operate the cooktop without all burner parts, drip pans (on some models) and grates in place.

NOTE: Do not lift the cooktop. Lifting the cooktop on sealed burner models can lead to damage and improper operation of the range.

Electrode

The electrode of the spark igniter is exposed when the burner head is removed. When one burner is turned to LITE, all the burners spark. Do not attempt to disassemble or clean around any burner while another burner is on. An electric shock may result, which could cause you to knock over hot cookware.

Care and cleaning of the range.

Use a sewing needle or twist-tieto unclog the small hole in the burner head.

Burner Caps and Heads

NOTE: Before removing the burner caps

and heads, remember their size and location. Replace them in the same location after cleaning.

Burner caps

Lift off when cool. Wash burner caps in hot, soapy water and rinse with clean

water. You may scour with a plastic scouring pad to remove burned-onfood particles.

Burner heads

For proper ignition, make sure the small hole in the section that fits over the electrode is kept open. A sewing needle or wire twist-tieworks well to unclog it.

The slits in the burner heads must be kept clean at all times for an even, unhampered flame.

Clogged or dirty burner ports or electrodes will not allow the burner to operate properly.

Any spill on or around an electrode must be carefully cleaned. Take care to not hit an electrode with anything hard or it could

be damaged.

You should clean the burner caps and burner heads routinely, especially after bad spillovers, which could clog the openings in the burner heads. Lift off when cool.

To remove burned-onfood, soak the burner heads in a solution of mild liquid detergent and hot water for20–30minutes. For more stubborn stains, use a toothbrush.

After cleaning

Before putting the burner caps and heads back, shake out excess water and then dry them thoroughly by setting in a warm oven for 30 minutes.

NOTE: Do not use steel wool or scouring powders to clean the burners.

Burner Grates

Lift out when cool. Grates should be washed regularly and, of course, after spillovers. Wash them in hot, soapy water and rinse with clean water. When replacing the grates, be sure they are positioned securely over the burners.

On models with professional-styledouble grates, the grates areposition-specific.For maximum stability, these grates should only be used in their proper position; they cannot be interchanged left to right or front to back. For convenience, the undersides of the left and right grates are marked “LEFT FRONT” and “RIGHT FRONT.”

Do not operate a burner for an extended period of time without cookware on the grate. The finish on the grate may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.

To get rid of burned-onfood, place the grates in a covered container. Add 1/4 cup ammonia and let them soak several hours or overnight. Wash, rinse well and dry.

Although they are durable, the grates will gradually lose their shine, regardless of the best care you can give them. This is due to their continual exposure to high temperatures. You will notice this sooner with lighter color grates.

NOTE: Do not clean the grates in aself-cleaningoven.

Cooktop Surface

To avoid damaging the porcelain enamel surface of the cooktop and to prevent it from becoming dull, clean up spills right away. Foods with a lot of acid (tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices, etc.) or foods with high sugar content could cause a dull spot if allowed to set.

When the surface has cooled, wash and rinse. For other spills such as fat spatterings, etc., wash with soap and water once the surface has cooled. Then rinse and polish with a dry cloth.

NOTE: Do not store flammable materials in an oven or near the cooktop. Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

NOTE: Do not lift the cooktop on sealed burner models. Lifting the cooktop can lead to damage and improper operation of the range.

Stainless Steel Surfaces (on some models)

Do not use a steel-woolpad; it will scratch the surface.

Shake bottle well.

Place a small amount of CERAMA BRYTE® Stainless Steel Appliance Cleaner on adamp cloth ordamp paper towel.

Clean a small area (approximately

8x 8), rubbing with the grain of the stainless steel if applicable.

Dry and buff with a clean, dry paper towel or soft cloth.

Repeat as necessary.

NOTE: If a mineraloil-basedstainless steel appliance cleaner has been used before to

clean the appliance, wash the surface with dish soap and water prior to using the CERAMA BRYTE® Stainless Steel Appliance Cleaner. After washing the surface with dish soap and water, use a generous amount of CERAMA BRYTE® Stainless Steel Appliance Cleaner to clean the appliance.
