Hi I have just installed this oven SA995XR-5 yesterday and have the manual. It doesn't say anywhere it is self-cleaning, just good old elbow grease. Below is what is in the manual.
*I have a question for you. Does the cooling fan in your oven go all the time or does it stop some time after the oven has been turned off (which is what the manual indicates it is supposed to do)?7.Cleaning and Maintenance
Before performing any operations requiring access to powere parts, switch off the power supply to the machine.7.1 Cleaning stainless steel
To keep Stainless stell in good condition it should be cleaned regularly after use. Let it cool first.7.1.1 Ordinary Daily Cleaning
To clean and preserve the stainless steel surfaces always use only specific products that do not contain abrasives or chlorine-based acids.
How to use: pour the product on a damp cloth and wipe the surface, rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth or deerskin.
7.1.2 Food stains or residues
Do not use metallic sponges or shapr scrapers: they will damage the surface.
Use normal non-abrasive products for steel and a wooden or plastic tool if necessary.
Do not allow residues of suraty foods (suc as jam) to set inside the oven. If left ot set for too long, they might damage the enamel lining of the oven.7.2 Cleaning of the oven
To best oven upkeep clean regularly after having allowed to cool, Take out all removable parts
7.3 Door Glass
- Clean the oven grill and side guides with hot water and non-abrasiev detergent, Rinse and dry.
- The oven should be operated at the maximum temperature for about 15/20 minuytes after using specific products, to eliminate the residue deposited inside the oven.
- For easier cleaning, the door can be removed.(8.2)
The door glass should always be kept clean. Use absorbent kitchen paper to clean. In case of tough spots, clean with a damp sponge using regular detergent.8.2 Removing
Hold the door on both sides with both hands near hinges (A - there is a diagram showing this is the top hinge
) and raise levers (B - this lever is a little arm attached to bottom hinge. Flick it up until it catches into groove on upper hinge. Its quite uncomplicated)
. Lift up the door forming an angle of about 45 degrees and remove. To refit, slide the hinges A in the grooves, drop door and release levers B.8.3 Oven door seal
To permit thorough cleaning of the oven, the seal may be removed. Before the seal, take off the door as described above. Once the door has been taken off, left the tabs at the corners as shown in the figure.
After cleaning, refit the seal with the longer side horizontal and insert the tabs into the appropriate holes starting from the top ones.
