Rinse well If you need service or assistance, we suggest you follow these four steps: 1 l Before calling for assistance.. . Performance problems often result from little things you can find and fix yourself without tools of any kind. If nothlng operates: Is the oven correctly wired to a live circuit with the proper voltage? (See lnstallatlon Instructlons.) l Have you checked your home’s main fuses or circuit breaker box? l If the upper oven will not operate: Is the Upper Oven Selector turned to a setting (BAKE or BROIL, but not TIMED BAKE]? l Is the Upper Oven Temperature Control turned to a temperature setting? l If the lower oven will not operate: l Is the Lower Oven Selector turned to a setting (BAKE or BROIL]? l Is the Lower Oven Temperature Control turned to a temperature setting? If the self-cleanlng cycle will not operate: Are the Upper Oven Selector and Upper Oven Temperature Controls set to “CLEAN”? l Does the Start Ttme dial show the correct time of day? l Is the Stop Time dial set ahead to the time you want the cleaning cycle to stop? l If roll Is vlslble on continuous-cleaning oven flnlsh: a The special finish is designed to gradually reduce oven soil during normal baking or roasting. It is not designed to keep your oven spotless...only presentably clean. l If you broil often, you may see oven soil. l The door is cooler than oven walls. Soil will be more visible on the door than other areas in the oven. See page 15, “Hand Cleaning.” 15 If cooklng results aren’t what you expect: Is the oven level? Are you using pans recommended in the Cooklng Guide? If baking, have you allowed i% to 2 inches (4-5 cm] on all sides of the pans for air circulation? Does the oven temperature seem too low or too high? See page 4, “Resetting the oven temperature controls.” Have you preheated the oven as the recipe calls for? Are the pans the size called for in the recipe? Are you following a tested recipe from a reliable source? Do the cooking utensils have smooth, flat bottoms?
