For instructions on how to set and start the self-clean cycle, refer to the following resources:
- The oven door locks as soon as the self-clean cycle starts.
- The oven door unlocks during the cool down once temperatures have reached a safe level.
- The amount of time it takes for the oven to cool to a safe level varies.
- Running the unit before entering self-clean and ambient room temperature may impact cool down time.
- The control panel counts down the time remaining for the clean to complete.
- Control panel shows three times:
- Far left is the time remaining.
- Middle is the time of day when the cycle will be complete.
- Far right shows the current time of day.
- Self-clean time can be adjusted. See Adjusting Oven Self-Clean Time Length.
- Surface burners are safe to use while the oven is self-cleaning.
- During self-clean, exterior surfaces may get hotter than usual, so children should be kept away.

- Turning a unit off during self-clean is discouraged. Damage can occur if self-clean does not complete.
