  • Cannot change self-clean time from 4 hours to 3 hours

Self-Clean time adjustment varies by product.

  • The E Series Oven self-clean can be adjusted between 3 and 4 hours.
  • The L Series Oven self-clean can be adjusted differently depending on the serial number.
    • The L Series Oven Use and Care Guides stated the self-clean time is adjustable from 2.5 - 4 hours, which is possible prior to serial number 16,000,000.
    • Starting with serial number 16,000,000, the adjustment is only 3 to 4 hours.
    • For instructions, refer to L Series Built-In Oven Self-Clean Feature.
  • The M Series Oven has only a 4-hour self-clean, and the time cannot be adjusted.

The Dual Fuel Range Use and Care Guide explains the difference between setting a 4-hour and 3-hour self-clean cycle. If the instructions in the manual supplied with a Dual Fuel Range do not work, use the following:

  1. Turn oven selector knob bezel to CLEAN.
  2. Touch COOK TIME and hold the down arrow until 3:00 is shown.
  3. Touch STOP TIME and hold the down arrow until 3:00 is shown. The oven will automatically be set to self-clean for 3 hours. The oven will self-clean for 2 hours and cool down for 1 hour.
  4. Touch ENTER twice to begin clean cycle.
  5. To stop the clean cycle, turn bezel to the OFF position. The door will stay locked until the oven reaches a safe temperature.
