Allow the oven to cool to room temperature before using the Clean cycle. If your oven cavity is above 200°F (93°C), “Oven Cooling” will appear in the display, and the Clean cycle will not be activated until the oven cavity cools down.

To Clean:

  1. Remove all racks and accessories from the oven cavity and wipe excess soil. Use a plastic scraper to remove easilyremoved soils.
  2. Pour 2 cups (16 oz [500 mL]) of distilled or filtered water onto the bottom of the empty oven and close the oven door.
  3. Press AQUALIFT SELF CLEAN and then START on the oven control panel.
  4. Allow 40 minutes for cleaning and cool down. A beep will sound when the Clean cycle is complete.
  5. Press OFF at the end of the cycle. Off may be pressed at any time to stop the Clean cycle.
  6. Remove the residual water and loosened soils with a sponge or cloth immediately after the Clean cycle is complete. Much of the initial 2 cups (16 oz [500 mL]) of water will remain in the oven after the cycle is completed. If additional soils remain, leave a small amount of water in the oven bottom to assist with the cleaning.
  7. If any soils remain, remove them with a non-scratch scrubbing sponge or plastic scraper. Additional Clean cycles may be run to help remove the stubborn soils.
