Oven Safety
Your safety is important to us.
This guide contains safety statements under
warning symbols. Please pay special
attention to these symbols and follow any
instructions given. Here is a brief explanation of the use of the symbol.
This symbol alerts you to
hazards such as fire,
electrical shock, or
other injuries.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
– WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS:
• Do not try to light any appliance.
• Do not touch any electrical switch; do not use any phone in your
building.
• Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s phone.
Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.
• If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
– Installation and service must be performed by a qualified installer,
service agency or the gas supplier.

O VEN SAFETY
General
• 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 the proper gas
supply and checked for leaks. The oven
must also be properly connected to
electrical supply and grounded.
• Gas fuels and their use in appliances can
cause minor exposures to benzene,
formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, and
soot, primarily from incomplete combustion. Significant exposure to these
substances could cause cancer or
reproductive harm. Properly adjusted
burners with a blue, rather than a yellow,
flame will minimize incomplete combustion. Venting with a hood or an open
window will further minimize exposure.
• 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.
• Do not attempt to light the oven burner
during a power failure. Personal injury
could result.
• Use the oven only for its intended use as
described in this manual.
• Do not touch interior surfaces of oven.
Areas near 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 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, and 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 surface and you could
be burned.
• Use only dry pot holders. Moist or damp
pot holders on hot surfaces could result
in burns from steam. Do not use a towel
or bulky cloth for a pot holder. It could
catch on fire.
• Keep oven vents unobstructed.
• Do not heat unopened containers. They
could explode. The hot contents could
cause burns and container particles
could cause injury.
• Use only cookware approved for oven
use. Follow cookware manufacturer’s
instructions, especially when using glass
or plastic cookware.
• Do not store flammable materials in or
near the oven or in the storage drawer.
The fumes could create an explosion
and/or fire hazard.
• Do not use the oven for storage.
• Do not use aluminum foil to line oven
bottom, or any other part of the oven.
Use aluminum foil only as recommended
in this manual.
• Never use a match or other flame to
look for a gas leak. Explosion and injury
could result.
• Know where your main gas shutoff valve
is located.

O V EN S A F E T Y
When using the oven
• Always position the oven rack(s) in
desired location while oven is cool.
• Use care when opening oven door. Let
hot air or steam escape before removing
or replacing food.
• Do not use water on grease fires. Never
pick up a flaming pan. Smother flaming
pan by covering with a well-fitting lid,
cookie sheet, or flat tray. Flaming grease
outside of pan can be extinguished
with baking soda or, if available, a
multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
Grease
• Grease is flammable. Do not allow
grease to collect in vents. Wipe
spillovers immediately.
Care and cleaning
• Small amounts of formaldehyde and
carbon monoxide are given off in the
Self-Cleaning cycle from fiberglass
insulation and food decomposition.
Significant exposure to these substances
could cause cancer or reproductive
harm. Exposure can be minimized by
venting with a hood or open window
and wiping out excess food spills prior to
self-cleaning.
• Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective
coating of any kind should be used in or
around any part of the oven.
• Before self-cleaning the oven, remove
broiler pan, broiler grid, oven racks, and
other cookware. Do not use your oven
to clean miscellaneous parts unless you
are instructed to do so in this Use and
Care Guide.
• Do not clean door heat seal. It is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken
not to rub, damage, or move the seal.
Clean only parts recommended in this
Use and Care Guide.
• Do not repair or replace any part of the
oven unless specifically recommended in
this manual. All other servicing should be
referred to a qualified technician.
• Any additions, changes, or conversions
required in order for this appliance to
satisfactorily meet the application needs
must be made by a Whirlpool service
company or Qualified Agency.
• Disconnect the electrical supply and the
gas supply at the shutoff valve near the
oven before servicing the oven.

Using Your Oven
To get the best cooking results, you should use your oven the correct way. This section tells
you what you need to know to use your oven safely and efficiently. This oven is equipped
with an electronic ignitor for the oven burner and a second ignitor for the broil burner. The
electronic ignitor automatically lights the oven burner each time it is used. This oven cannot
be used during prolonged power failure.
NOTE: This oven was tested for use with natural gas and is also design approved for use
with Liquified Petroleum Propane gas. Instructions for conversions are in the Installation
Instructions.
Positioning racks and pans
General guidelines
Follow this section carefully to get the best
cooking results.
• Before turning on the oven, place oven
racks where you need them.
• To remove a rack, pull it out to the stop.
Lift the front of the rack and slide out. To
replace the rack, fit it onto the guides on
the oven walls. Tilt the front of the rack up
and slide back into place.
• Be sure the rack(s) is level.
• Use pot holders or oven mitts to protect
your hands if rack(s) must be moved while
the oven is hot.
• When baking/roasting with 1 rack, place
the rack so the top of the food will be
centered in the oven.
• When baking/roasting on 2 racks, arrange
the racks on the 2nd and 4th rack guides
from the bottom.
• Do not place items on the oven door when
it is open.
Using insulated bakeware,
ovenproof glassware, and dark
metal pans
• When baking with insulated cookie sheets
or baking pans, place them in the bottom
third of the oven. You may need to increase the recommended baking times, so
test for doneness before removing from
the oven.
8
• When using ovenproof glassware or dark
bakeware, reduce the oven temperature
by 25°F but use the same baking time.
Because these pans absorb heat, producing darker bottom browning and crispier
crusts, place the rack in the center of the
oven. When baking pies and bread, you
can use the temperature suggested in
the recipe.

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.
• Place the pans so that one is not directly
over the other.
• For best results, allow 11⁄2-2 inches
of space around each pan and between
pans and oven walls.
• Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at
a 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.

Adjusting the oven temperature control
Although 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 baking/roasting
results, you can change the offset temperature by following these steps:
NOTES:
• DO NOT measure oven temperature with
a thermometer. Opening the oven door will
lower the oven temperature and give you
an inaccurate reading. Also, the thermometer temperature reading will change as
your oven cycles.
• Adjusting the oven temperature control
will only change cooking temperatures. It

Broiling 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.
• If you broil small quantities, you may want
to use a small broiler pan. They are
available in the housewares section of
many department stores.
• Do not cover the broiler grid with foil.
• To make sure the grease drains well, do
not use cookie sheets or similar pans for
broiling.
• Place the food about 3 inches or more
from the broil burner.
• For best broiling results, preheat in
BROIL for 5 minutes. Do not preheat with
broiler pan in place.
• Broiling rack position determines how
the burner cooks your food. The lower
Broiling rack position chart
Energy saving 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:
• Use pans with flat bottoms, straight sides,
and tight-fitting lids.
• Cook with a minimum of liquid or fat to
help shorten cooking time.
• Preheat oven only when recommended
and for the shortest time possible.

Using the electronic MEALTIMER™ control
The electronic MEALTIMER control will 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. – they will not rise properly.
Before using the electronic MEALTIMER
control, make sure the clock is set to the
correct time of day. (See “Setting the clock”
on page 11.)

spotless.
wWARNING
Burn Hazard
Do not touch the oven during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Keep children away from oven during Self-Cleaning cycle.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners in your oven.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns,
or illness from inhaling dangerous fumes.
Before you start
Hand-clean frame
DO NOT
hand-clean seal
Hand-clean door
around edge
Before you start the Self-Cleaning cycle,
make sure you:
• Hand-clean the areas shown. They do
not get hot enough during the cleaning
cycle for soil to burn away. Use hot water
and detergent or a soapy steel-wool pad
for cleaning.
NOTE: DO NOT clean, move, or bend the
seal. Poor cleaning, baking, and roasting
may result.
• Remove the broiler pan and grid and
any pots and pans being stored in the
oven.
• Wipe up food spills containing sugar as
soon as possible after the oven cools
down. When sugar is heated to a high
temperature in the Self-Cleaning cycle, the
high temperature can cause the sugar to
burn and react with the porcelain. This can
cause staining and etching or pitting.
• Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This
will help reduce smoke during the SelfCleaning cycle.
• Remove the oven racks from the oven if
you want them to remain shiny. You can
clean the oven racks in the Self-Cleaning
cycle, but they will become harder to slide.
(See page 31.) If you clean racks in the
Self-Cleaning cycle, place them on the 2nd
and 4th rack guides. (Guides are counted
from bottom to top.)
• Heat and odors are normal during the
Self-Cleaning cycle. Keep the kitchen well
ventilated by opening a window or by
turning on a vent hood or other kitchen
vent during the cycle.

U SI N G T H E S E L F -CL E A NING CYCLE
TIPS:
• Do not force the door lock. You could
bend or break it. The door lock is designed
to stay locked until the oven is cool enough
to safely open. Wait until it opens.
• Do not block the vent during the SelfCleaning cycle. Air must move freely for
best cleaning results.
• Do not leave plastic utensils near the
vent. They may melt.
• Do not leave any foil in the oven during
the Self-Cleaning cycle. Foil could burn or
melt and damage the oven surface.
• Make sure the oven light is off during the
Self-Cleaning cycle. Keeping the oven light
on will shorten bulb life.
• This oven is equipped with an internal
cooling fan. You will hear a fan sound
during a normal Self-Cleaning cycle. This
fan comes on automatically to keep the
electronic controls cool. Canceling the oven
will not turn off this fan. It will continue
running until the electronic controls have
cooled enough. The fan will then automatically turn off.
Before setting the controls
Make sure the clock is set to
the correct time of day and
the door is closed.
(See “Setting the clock” on page 11.)

Special tips
• Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the
Self-Cleaning cycle to help get rid of heat,
odors, and smoke.
• After the oven is cool, wipe up any
residue or ash with a damp cloth or
sponge. If any spots remain, clean with a
mild abrasive cleanser or cleaning sponge.
• Clean the oven before it gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning a very soiled oven takes longer
and results in more smoke than usual.
28
• If the Self-Cleaning cycle does not get
the oven as clean as you expected, the
cycle may not have been set long enough
or you may not have prepared the oven
properly. Set the Self-Cleaning cycle
longer the next time and hand-clean areas
noted on page 25.
US ING T H E SELF- CLEAN IN G CYCLE
The Self-Cleaning cycle uses very high heat
to burn away soil and grease. During the
cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it
does for normal baking or broiling. This high
heat breaks up the soil or grease and burns
it away.
We recommend a 3-hour Self-Cleaning
cycle. However, you can adjust the cycle
time to the amount of soil in your oven. You
can set the cycle anywhere between 2 and 4
hours. (See “Setting the controls” on
page 26.)
The graph at the right is representative of
a normal, 3-hour Self-Cleaning cycle. Note
that the heating stops when the 3-hour
setting is up, but it takes longer for the oven
to cool enough to unlock.

Troubleshooting
Most cooking problems often are caused by little things you can find and fix without tools of
any kind. Check the lists below and on the next page before calling for assistance or service.
If you still need help, see “Requesting Assistance or Service” on page 35.
If nothing operates, check the following:
Is the oven plugged into a live outlet with the proper voltage? (See
Installation Instructions.)
▼
Have you blown a household fuse or tripped a circuit breaker?
▼
Is the oven properly connected to gas supply? Contact an authorized
Whirlpool service company to reconnect oven to gas supply. (See Installation
Instructions.)
▼
Is the flow of combustion and/or ventilation air to the oven blocked?
Other possible problems and their causes:
PROBLEM
CAUSE
The oven will not
operate
• You have not set the electronic control correctly. Refer to the
section in this manual describing the function you are operating.
• You have programmed a delayed start time. Wait for the start time
to be reached or cancel and reset the control.
• The oven door is not closed.
Burner fails
to light
• The oven is not wired into a live circuit with the proper voltage.
(See Installation Instructions.)
• You have blown a household fuse or tripped a circuit breaker.
• The gas supply shutoff valve(s) is closed.
The Self-Cleaning
cycle will not
operate
• The clock does not show the correct time of day. (See page 11 for
setting information.)
• You have programmed a delayed start time. Wait for the start time
to be reached or cancel and reset the control.

TR OU B L E S H OOT ING
PROBLEM
CAUSE
The cooling fan
does not shut off
after the SelfCleaning cycle is
completed
• The electronic controls have not cooled enough. The fan will only
shut off after electronic controls have cooled. Canceling the SelfCleaning cycle will not turn off the cooling fan.
Cooking results
are not what you
expected
• The oven is not level. (See Installation Instructions.)
• The oven temperature seems too low or too high. See “Adjusting
the oven temperature control” on page 16 to adjust oven
temperature.
• You did not preheat the oven before baking (if called for in
recipe).
• The recipe you are using may need to be altered to improve the
taste or appearance of the food.
• You are using a pan that is not the correct type or size. Refer to a
reliable cookbook or recipe for recommended pan type and size.
• There is not enough air space around pan when baking. Allow
11⁄2 to 2 inches of air space on all sides of pan.
• If broiling, you have not completely closed the oven door. The
broiler provides the best cooking results with the oven door
closed.
A tone sounds
and the display
shows F1 or F3
• The electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press the
Cancel button to clear the display and stop the tones, then
attempt to reprogram the oven. If the fault recurs, record the fault
number shown on the display, press the Cancel button and
contact an authorized servicer.
