Accel Cleaning Setting

I need to know what the Accel Clean setting means on my pre-1980 Jenn Air Model 88370 range. It came with the house and I have no manual to look things up. I am wondering if I have a self-cleaning oven or a continuous clean oven.

It's 'sort of' self cleaning. I just got done figuring it out. If your clock still works, you're supposed to set it for one hour of cooking. Turn the Selector to Accel Clean and the thermostat to 550. The oven fan should come on and the elements should heat. The door doesn't have a lock, which must explain why it only 'cleans' at 550°F.

    I've owned one for 30 years and the preceeding solution - set to Accel Clean, 550F an hour or so - is correct but incomplete. The oven lining ceramic is a catatytic ceraminc cleaning type, meaning that it will cause material in direct contact with it to oxidize at lower temperatures. The key to using this oven feature correctly is to remember that it only acts on what is actually directly touching the ceramic.. Remove the bulk of material from any spill as promptly as is practical and the oven lining will go to work on the rest as you cook if you bake hot enough, or use Accelerated Cleaning if needed. NB: The chrome racks don't have any special catalytic properties - you have to remove the racks to clean them. The wall part of the rack slides up then you can take it out. There should be an extra sheet of lining in the bottom of the oven that is also coated and is also removable which is helpful for cleaning up spills.

    To avoid damaging the ceramic lining of the oven the orginal instructions were quite clear; DON'T USE OVEN CLEANER. DON'T USE STEEL WOOL, BRILLO, OR ANY OTHER ABRASIVE STRATCHING OR SCRAPING TOOL.

I purchased a house w/ a Jenn-air elect. drop-in range. The Model # is 87946 or 87847. I believe the range was originally purchased in 1975. I am in need of an instruction manual .


Neither of these are a typical Jenn-Air model number. http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search.jsp?siteCd=JA_EN_US suggests that the model number is on the back wall under the burner on the right side of a drop-in cooktop. For a range the model number is often on the frame inside the oven door, below the vent or on the back of the top of the range.

87946 or 87847 are the part numbers for the cartridges (the elements or the surrounding housing).

Look at the model number locations at the "Help me find my model number" link and try to locate a model number on your range. Then enter that model into the search box. The manual is probably available with the correct part number. Most Jenn-air electric cooktops start with JEC in their model number.

I hope this helps you locate the manual.

I have a similar Jenn Air oven approximate date 1982. It has a catalytic liner (colored a kind of dark charcoal  with paler flecks), so it is a continuous clean oven during normal cooking.  However, it also has the Accel Clean setting on the control knob. This increases the oven temperature to maximum and also runs the convection fan to burn off cooking residues. This allows the catalytic lining work at high efficiency, and burn off stubborn residues that are not removed at normal cooking temperature. The oven may emit smoke through the top door vents as the food residues burn off, so watch that you do not set off your smoke detector. I switch on the cooker hood fan and also put a fan in the kitchen window (blowing air out of the kitchen), to avoid setting off my kitchen smoke detector if I use Accel Clean.
