Dacor offers a wide range of American-made kitchen appliances for home and professional use. Dacor ovens are equipped with a self-cleaning feature to eliminate the need for heavy scrubbing and oven cleaners. High heat generated during the self-cleaning cycle incinerates any cooked-on food or tough debris. Run the self-cleaning cycle regularly to keep your Dacor oven clean and minimize smoke and odors.
Things You'll Need
- Dish detergent
- Scrub sponge
- White vinegar
Remove the oven racks, convection filter and any pans or aluminum foil from the Dacor oven.
Fill the sink with hot water and add 1 to 2 tbsp. dish detergent. Dip a sponge into the sink and wring it out. Scrub the oven door outside of the gasket, and dab the gasket lightly with the sponge to remove any debris.
Rinse the sponge thoroughly with clean water and add 1 to 2 tsp. white vinegar to the wet sponge. Wipe the oven door outside of the gasket to rinse away any soap residue.
Open any doors or windows in the kitchen and turn on a fan if you have one.
Close the Dacor oven door and press the "Self Clean" and "Start" buttons to begin the self-cleaning cycle. If you need to stop the cleaning process for any reason, press the "Cancel - Secure" button. The oven door will not unlock until the oven cools to around 400 degrees F.
Wash the oven racks and filter in the hot, soapy water and rinse them thoroughly. Dry the oven racks with a towel and set the filter out to air dry.
Open the oven door when the self-cleaning process is complete. When the oven is cool to the touch, wipe away any ash with a damp sponge and replace the oven racks and filter.
Tips & Warnings
- Do not allow pets or children near the oven during the self-cleaning process, as the exterior can get very hot.
- Do not leave the oven unattended during the self-cleaning process.
