How to set the oven for steam-cleaning

How to set the oven for steam-cleaning?

  1. 1. Remove all accessories from the oven.
  2. Pour approximately 10 oz. (300 ml) of water onto the bottom of the empty oven and close the oven door. Use tap water only, not distilled water.
  3. Press Steam Clean.
  4. Press START/SET. When the operation is complete, the display will blink and a beep will sound.
  5. Press OVEN OFF.
  6. Clean the oven’s interior. There will be a significant amount of water remaining on the bottom of the oven after a steam-cleaning cycle. Remove the residual water with a sponge or soft dry cloth.

When steam-cleaning, use exactly 10 oz. of water since this produces the best results.

If you press Steam Clean when the oven temperature is above 100˚F, Hot will appear in the display. Because these functions produce the best results when started while the oven is cool, we recommend that you wait until the oven has cooled down and Hot disappears from the display.
