To obtain the best cooking results possible, you must operate your oven properly. This
section gives you important information for efficient and safe use of your oven.
Positioning
racks
and pans
For baking/roasting
with one rack, place
the rack so the top of the food will be
centered in the oven.
Rack placement for specific foods:
Angel and bundt
cakes, most quick
breads, yeast
breads, casseroles,
meats
Cookies, biscuits,
muff ins, cakes,
nonfrozen pies
2nd level from
bottom
2nd or 3rd level
from bottom
When baking on two racks, arrange racks
on bottom and third level from bottom.
NOTE: For recommended rack placement
when broiling, see “Broiling rack position
chart” on page 12.
Personal Injury Hazard
*Always position oven rack(s) in
desired location before turning oven
on. Be sure the rack(s) is level.
l If rack(s) must be moved while oven
is hot, use potholders or oven mitts to
protect hands.
Failure to follow the above precautions
could result in personal injury.
For best air circulation
Hot air must circulate around the pans in the
oven for even heat to reach all parts of the
oven. This results in better baking.
l Place the pans so that one is not directly
over the other.
l For best results,
allow 1% to 2 inches
(4-5 cm) of space around each pan and
between pans and oven walls. There must
be a minimum space of 1 inch (2.5 cm).
l Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at
one time.
Use the following as a guide to determine
where to place the pans:
One pan
Place in the center of the oven rack.
Two pans
Place in opposite corners of the oven rack.
Three or four pans
Place in opposite corners on each oven
rack. Stagger pans so no pan is directly over
another.
Using
aluminum
foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers
from pies or casseroles:
l Place the foil on the oven rack below the
rack with the food. Turn up foil edges and
make sure foil is about 1 inch (3 cm)
larger all around than the dish holding the
food.
l Do not cover
the entire rack with aluminum foil. It will reduce air circulation and
cause poor cooking results.
l Do not line oven bottom or entire oven
rack with foil or other liners. Poor baking
will result.
Electrical Shock and Fire Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements.
Failure to follow this precaution could
result in electrical shock or fire hazard
and damage to the elements.

Adjusting
the oven temperature
control
Oven temperature controls will gradually shift
after years of use. So, even though your new
oven is properly adjusted to provide accurate
temperatures, it may cook faster or slower than
your old oven.
If, after using the oven for a period of time, you
are not satisfied with the temperature settings,
you can change them by following these steps:
1. Make sure the Oven Temperature Control
Knob is turned to the off position. Pull knob
straight off and flip it over.

Broiling
1. Position the rack properly before turning
on the oven. The oven rack should be
positioned so that the surface of the food
is at least 3 inches (7 cm) away from the
broil element. See “Broiling rack position
chart” on page 12.
2. Put the broiler pan and food on the rack.
3. Models RB1005XY, RBIOOPXY and
RBlPOPXY: Rotate the Broil Stop clips
over the door hinge slots as shown at
right.
4. Close the door to the Broil Stop position
(open about 4 inches [lo cm]). The door
will stay open by itself.
5. Set the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature Control Knob to BROIL. The
OVEN ON Indicator Light will come on.
NOTE: Do not preheat oven when
broiling.
6. When broiling is done, turn both the
Oven Selector and Oven Temperature
Control Knob to OFF. The OVEN ON
Indicator Light will go off.
7. Open the door and rotate the Broil Stop
clips to uncover the door hinge slots.
Close the door.

Custom
broil
If food is cooking too fast, turn the Oven
Temperature Control Knob counterclockwise until the OVEN ON Indicator Light
goes off.
l If you
want the food to broil slower from
the start, set the Oven Temperature
Control Knob between 170°F and 325°F
(77°C and 163°C). These temperature
settings allow the broil heating element to
cycle and to slow cooking. The lower the
temperature, the slower the cooking.
l Fish and chicken
are some foods that
may cook better if you use lower broiling
temperatures.
The Oven Selector must be on BROIL for
all broiling temperatures.
l
NOTE: Leave the oven door partly open
whenever using the oven to broil. This
allows the oven to maintain proper temperatures.

Broiling
l
l
tips
Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling.
They are designed to drain excess liquid
and grease away from the cooking surface
to help prevent spatter, smoke or fire.
After broiling, remove the broiler pan
from the oven when you remove the food.
Drippings will bake on the pan if you leave
it in the heated oven.
Energy
saving
Fire Hazard
Place meat the correct distance from
the element. Meat placed too close to
the element could spatter, smoke, burn
or catch fire during broiling.
.To ensure adequate grease drainage,
do not use cookie sheets or similar
pans for broiling. Also, covering the
broiler grid with foil is not recommended. Poor drainage of grease could
result in fire. If foil is used, cut slits in
foil to line up with all openings in broiler
grid. Grease can then drain away and
cool in pan.
l
tips
Although the energy used for cooking is
usually a very small percentage of the total
energy used in the home, cooking energy
can be used efficiently. Here are some tips
to help you save energy when using your
cooking product:
l Preheat
only when recommended and for
the shortest time possible.
l “Oven
peeking” may cause heat loss,
longer cooking times and unsatisfactory
baking results. Rely on your timer to keep
track of the cooking time.
Bake cakes, pies or cookies when the
oven is warm. Best time to bake is right
after a meal has been cooked in the oven.
. Plan your meals for the most efficient use
of the oven. When using the oven to cook
one food, try to cook the rest of the meal in
it also.
l Do not preheat
when broiling, roasting or
cooking items such as casseroles.
l
13
Using
the MEALTIMER’”
The MEALTIMER clock is designed to turn
the oven on and off at times you set, even
when you are not around.
Delayed time baking/roasting is ideal for
foods which do not require a preheated
oven, such as meats and casseroles. Do
not use delayed time cooking for cakes,
cookies, etc. - undercooking
will result.
Before using the MEALTIMER clock,
make sure the clock is set to the correct
time of day. (See “Setting the clock’ on
we 8.)
To delay start
automatically:
and stop
1. Position the oven rack(s) properly and
place the food in the oven.
2. Push in and turn the Start Time Knob
clockwise to the time you want baking/
roasting to start.
3. Push in and turn the Stop Time Knob
clockwise to the time you want the oven
to shut off.
4. Set the Oven Selector to TIME BAKE
5. Set the Oven Temperature Control Knob
to the baking/roasting temperature you
want. The oven will now start and stop
automatically. The OVEN ON Indicator
Light will come on when the start time is
reached.
6. After baking/roasting
is done or to
cancel the setting at any time, turn
both the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature Control Knob to OFF.

and
1. Position the oven rack(s) properly and place the
food in the oven.
2. Push in and turn the Stop Time Knob clockwise
to the time you want the oven to shut off. Make
sure the Start Time Knob is not pushed in.
3. Set the Oven Selector to TIME BAKE.
4. Set the Oven Temperature Control Knob to the
baking/roasting temperature you want.
5. After baking/roasting
is done or to cancel the
setting at any time, turn both the Oven Selector
and Oven Temperature Control Knob to OFF.
To avoid sickness and food waste
when using the MEALTIMER”
control:
l Do not let most UNFROZEN
food
stand for more than two hours before
cooking starts.
l Do not allow food to remain in oven
for more than two hours after the end
of cooking cycle.
NOTE: Do not use foods that will spoil while waiting
for cooking to start. Such foods are: dishes with milk
or eggs, cream soups, and cooked meats or fish.
Also, foods containing baking powder or yeast will
not rise properly when cooked using delay start.
The oven vent
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven
through a vent on the top of the control panel.
The vent is needed for air circulation. Do not
block the vent. Poor baking/roasting can result.
