Install or locate the oven only in accordance with the provided Installation Instructions. The oven must be installed by a qualified installer. The oven must be properly connected to electrical supply and grounded. CAUTION: Do not store things children might want above the oven. Children could be burned or injured while climbing on it. Do not leave children alone or unattended in area where the oven is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the oven. They could be burned or injured. Do not operate the oven if it is damaged or not working properly. . Do not use the oven for warming or heating the room. Persons could be burned or injured, or a fire could start. . Use the oven only for its intended use as described in this manual. Do not touch heating elements or interior surfaces of oven. Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of an oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the oven, such as the oven vent opening, the surface near the vent opening, the oven door and window, could also become hot enough to cause burns. .Do not wear loose or hanging garments when using the oven. They could ignite if they touch a hot heating element and you could be burned. l Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or bulky cloth for a potholder. It could catch on fire. l Keep oven vents unobstructed. l continued on next page 3 Do not heat unopened containers. They could explode. The hot contents could cause burns and container particles could cause injury. Do not store flammable materials on or near the oven. The fumes can create an explosion and/or fire hazard. ’ l l When using Care and cleaning l the oven Always position oven rack(s) in desired location while oven is cool. If a rack must be removed while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating element in oven. *Use care when opening oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food. l Grease l @Grease is flammable and should be handled carefully. Let fat cool before attempting to handle it. l Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up a flaming pan. Smother flaming pan by covering with a well-fitted lid, cookie sheet or flat tray. Flaming grease outside 1 of pan can be extinguished with baking soda or, if available, a multipurpose dry chemical or foamtype extinguisher. - SAVE 4 l THESE l Do not use oven cleaners in continuous-cleaning oven model. No commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind should be used in or around any part of the oven. Do not clean door heat seal. It is essential for a good seal.

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. 7 Setting the clock Push in and turn the Minute Timer Knob to set the clock. 2. Let the Minute Timer Knob pop out. Turn clockwise until Minute Timer hand points to OFF. The clock setting will change if you push in the knob when turning. Using the Minute Timer The Minute Timer does not start or stop the oven. It works like a kitchen timer. Set it in minutes up to an hour. You will hear a buzzer when the set time is up. NOTE: Do not push in the knob when setting the Minute Timer or when stopping the buzzer. Pushing in and turning the Minute Timer Knob changes the clock setting. 1. Without pushing it in, turn the Minute Timer Knob counterclockwise until the timer hand passes the setting you want. 2. Without pushing it in, turn the knob back to the setting you want. When the time is up, a buzzer will sound. To stop the buzzer, turn the Minute Timer hand to OFF. Baking/roasting 1. Position the rack(s) properly before turning on the oven. To change rack position, lift rack at front and pull out. For further information, see “Positioning racks and pans” on page 6. 2. Set the Oven Selector to BAKE 3. Set the Oven Temperature Control Knob to the baking/roasting temperature you want. The OVEN ON Indicator Light will come on. The oven is preheated when the OVEN ON Indicator Light first goes off. NOTE: Do not preheat oven when roasting or cooking items such as casseroles. 4. Put food in the oven. During baking/ roasting, the elements will turn on and off to maintain the temperature setting. The OVEN ON Indicator Light will turn on and off with the elements. NOTE: The top element during baking/roasting, turn red. helps heat but does not 5. When baking/roasting is done, turn both the Oven Selector and the Oven Temperature Control Knob to OFF. The OVEN ON Indicator Light will go off. 9 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. $ P 2. Loosen the locking screws inside the control knob. Note the position of the notches. Locking 4 II Tooth 3. To lower the temperature, hold knob handle firmly and move the tooth a notch counterclockwise. Each notch equals about 5°F (25°C). 4. To raise the temperature, hold knob handle firmly and move the tooth a notch clockwise. Each notch equals about 5°F (2.5%). 5. Tighten the locking screws and replace the control knob. 10 Notches e 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. 11 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 rack position chart 1 RACK POSITION 1 TYPE OF FOOD/ FROM BOlTOM 1 DONENESS I 4 Hamburger patties and thin steaks ‘I? thick or less ’ I 12 3 Quickly searing food, rare and medium steaks, medium patties ham slices, fish steaks, frankfurters 2 Well-done steaks and patties, lamb chops, split chicken, pork steaks and chops, whole fish 1 I Not used for broiling. 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. 14 clock To start baking/roasting stop automatically: now 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.

Your continuous-cleaning oven walls are coated with a special, rougher porcelain. A fat spatter beads up on the smooth surface, but spreads out on the rougher surface. The bead of fat on the smooth surface chars and turns black. The spread-out fat on the rough surface gradually burns away at medium to high baking temperatures so the oven can return to a presentably clean condition. Using foil Using foil on the oven bottom is recommended to catch sugar and starchy spills from pies and casseroles. It must be used properly. Cut foil from a roll of heavy-duty 1 e-inch (45 cm) aluminum foil, or buy a foil kit (Part No. 241430) from your Whirlpool Appliance dealer. I Burn and Electrical Shock Hazard Make sure all controls are OFF and the oven is cool before using foil. Failure to do so could result in burns or electrical shock. I Product Damage Hazard Do not let foil touch the bake element. It could damage the element. Make sure foil is flat on the bottom and away from the bake element. 1. Turn off all controls. 2. Lift the cool bake element slightly feet off the oven bottom. to lift the 3. Slide the foil under the bake element. Make sure the foil is centered and long enough to start up both side oven walls without wrinkling.
