To Prevent Fire or Smoke Damage
Cooking Safety
• Be sure all packing materials are removed from the appliance before
operating it.
• Keep area around appliance clear and free from combustible materials,
gasoline, and other flammable vapors and materials.
• Many aerosol-type spray cans are EXPLOSIVE when exposed to heat and
may be highly flammable. Avoid their use or storage near an appliance.
• Many plastics are vulnerable to heat. Keep plastics away from parts of the
appliance that may become warm or hot.
• Combustible items (paper, plastic, etc.) may ignite and metallic items
may become hot and cause burns. DO NOT leave oven unsupervised
when drying herbs, breads, mushrooms, etc., as this may create a fire
hazard.
• Use dry, sturdy pot-holders. Damp pot-holders may cause burns from steam.
Dishtowels or other substitutes should NEVER be used as potholders
because they can get caught on appliance parts.
• Loose-fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while using the
appliance. DO NOT drape towels or materials on oven door handles. These
items could ignite and cause burns.
• ALWAYS place oven racks in the desired positions while oven is cool.
Slide oven rack out to add or remove food, using dry, sturdy pot-holders.
ALWAYS avoid reaching into the oven to add or remove food. If a rack
must be moved while hot, use a dry pot-holder.
• ALWAYS turn the oven off at the end of cooking.
• DO NOT heat unopened food containers; buildup of pressure may cause
the container to explode and result in injury.
• Use care when opening the oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before
moving or replacing food.
• NEVER use aluminum foil to cover oven racks or oven bottom. This could
result in risk of electric shock, fire, or damage to the appliance. Use foil only
as directed in this guide.
• PREPARED FOOD WARNING: Follow food manufacturer's instructions. If a
plastic frozen food container and/or its cover distorts, warps, or is otherwise
damaged during cooking, immediately discard the food and its container.
The food could be contaminated.
In Case of Fire
Turn off appliance to avoid spreading the flame.
• Smother fire or flame by closing the oven door.
• DO NOT use water on grease fires. Use baking soda, a dry chemical or
foam-type extinguisher to smother fire or flame.
Child Safety
• NEVER leave children alone or unsupervised near the appliance when it is in
use or is still hot.
• DO NOT store items of interest to children over the unit. Children climbing
to reach items could be seriously injured.
• Children must be taught that the appliance and utensils in it can be hot.
Let hot utensils cool in a safe place, out of reach of small children.
Children should be taught that an appliance is not a toy. Children should not
be allowed to play with controls or other parts of the appliance.
Heating Elements
• NEVER touch oven heating elements, areas near elements, or interior
surfaces of oven.
• Heating elements may be hot even though dark in color. Areas near elements
and interior surfaces of an oven may become hot enough to cause burns.
• During and after use, DO NOT touch or let clothing or other flammable
materials contact heating elements, areas near elements, or interior surfaces
of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool.
Self-Clean Oven
• Clean only parts listed in this guide. DO NOT clean door gasket. The door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage,
or move the gasket. DO NOT use oven cleaners of any kind in or around
any part of the self-clean oven.
• Before self-cleaning the oven, remove broiler pan, oven racks and other

Important Safety Notice and Warning
• Other potentially hot surfaces include oven vent, surfaces near the vent
opening, oven door, areas around the oven door, and oven window.
• The misuse of oven doors (e.g. stepping, sitting, or leaning on them) can
result in potential hazards and/or injuries.
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986
(Proposition 65) requires the Governor of California to publish a list of
substances known to the State of California to cause cancer or
reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential
exposures to such substances. Users of this appliance are hereby warned
that when the oven is engaged in the self-clean cycle, there may be some
low-level exposure to some of the listed substances, including carbon
monoxide. Exposure to these substances can be minimized by properly
venting the oven to the outdoors by opening the windows and/or door in
the room where the appliance is located during the self-clean cycle.
Important notice regarding pet birds:
NEVER keep pet birds in the kitchen or in rooms where the fumes from the
kitchen could reach. Birds have a very sensitive respiratory system. Fumes
released during an oven self-cleaning cycle may be harmful or fatal to
birds. Fumes released due to overheated cooking oil, fat, margarine and
overheated non-stick cookware may be equally harmful.
About Your Appliance
WARNING
NEVER use appliance as a space heater to heat or warm a room to
prevent potential hazard to the user and damage to the appliance. Also,
DO NOT use the oven as a storage area for food or cooking utensils.
WARNING
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
DO NOT touch a hot oven light bulb with a damp cloth as
the bulb could break. Should the bulb break, disconnect
power to the appliance before removing bulb to avoid
electrical shock.
WARNING
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Disconnect the electric power at the main fuse or circuit
breaker before replacing bulb.
WARNING
BURN OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Make sure all controls are “OFF” and oven is COOL before
cleaning. Failure to do so can result in burns or electrical
shock.
WARNING
To prevent possible damage to cabinets and cabinet finishes, use only
materials and finishes that will not discolor or delaminate and will
withstand temperatures up to 194°F (90°C). Heat and moisture resistant
adhesive must be used if the product is to be installed in laminated
cabinetry. Check with your builder or cabinet supplier to make sure that
the materials meet these requirements.
• For proper oven performance and operation, DO NOT block or obstruct the
oven vent duct located on the right side of the air grille.
• Avoid touching oven vent area while oven is on and for several minutes after
oven is turned off. When the oven is in use, the vent and surrounding area
become hot enough to cause burns. After oven is turned off, DO NOT
touch the oven vent or surrounding areas until they have had sufficient time
to cool.

WARNING
This appliance features a self-cleaning cycle. During this cycle, the
oven reaches elevated temperatures in order to burn off soil and
deposits. A powder ash residue is left in the bottom of the oven after
completion of the self-clean cycle.
Note: DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners inside the oven. Use of
these cleaners can produce hazardous fumes or can damage the
porcelain finishes. DO NOT line the oven with aluminum foil or other
materials. These items can melt or burn during a self-clean cycle,
causing permanent damage to the oven.

WARNING
BURN HAZARD
When self-cleaning, surfaces may get hotter than usual.
Therefore, children should be kept away.
WARNING
To avoid sickness and food waste when using automatic time baking:
• DO NOT use foods that will spoil while waiting for cooking to start, such
as dishes with milk or eggs, cream soups, custards, fish, pork, poultry,
or foods with stuffing.
• Any food that has to wait for cooking to start should be very cold or
frozen before it is placed in the oven.
• DO NOT use foods containing baking powder or yeast with automatic
time baking. They will not rise properly.
• DO NOT allow food to remain in the oven for more than 2 hours after
the end of the cooking cycle.
• To avoid sickness and food waste, DO NOT allow defrosted food to
remain in the oven for more than 2 hours.
CAUTION
DO NOT touch the exterior portions of the oven after
self-cleaning cycle has begun, since some parts become
extremely hot to the touch!
During the first few times the self-cleaning feature is used, there may
be some odor and smoking from the “curing” of the binder in the highdensity insulation used in the oven. When the insulation is thoroughly
cured, this odor will disappear. During subsequent self-cleaning
cycles, you may sense an odor characteristic of high temperatures.
KEEP THE KITCHEN WELL-VENTED DURING THE
SELF-CLEAN CYCLE.
CAUTION
DO NOT store items of interest to children over the unit. Children
climbing to reach items could be seriously injured.

IMPORTANT– Please Read and Follow
CAUTION
BURN HAZARD
The oven door, especially the glass, can get hot. Danger of
burning: DO NOT touch the glass!
CAUTION
To avoid sickness and food waste, DO NOT allow defrosted food to
remain in the oven for more than 2 hours.
CAUTION
You must carefully check the food during the dehydration process to
ensure that it does not catch fire.
NOTICE
The cooling fan should be operating when the unit is in operation.
If you notice the cooling fan is not operating or you observe unusual
or excessive noise coming from the cooling fan, contact a Viking
Authorized Service Center before continuing operation. Failure to do
so can result in damage to the oven or surrounding cabinets.
NOTICE
Avoid any damage to oven vents. The vents need to be unobstructed
and open to provide proper airflow for optimal oven performance.
NOTICE
DO NOT turn the Temperature Control on during defrosting. Turning
the convection fan on will accelerate the natural defrosting of the food
without the heat.

The Electronic Timing Center is
used to program and control all
timing functions on your Viking
appliance. It has four display
and programming modes that
are activated by the four push
buttons. Both the timer and the
Cook Time/Stop Time modes can be used to time cooking periods.
These features can even be used at the same time when both ovens
are in use. For example, you can time-bake a casserole in the upper
oven using the Cook Time/Stop Time mode, while broiling in the lower
oven using the timer. One oven can also be cleaned while timing foods
in the other oven using the timer.

Timeouts
Your oven is programmed with four preset timeouts that allow the user
varying amounts of time to key in entries to the oven control display.
The amount of time allowed the user to respond to a programming
prompt is called a timeout. If the user fails to make an entry during the
timeout period, the oven will default to its previous mode.
If you find that the amount of time allowed for programming does not
meet your needs, you can redefine the limits of any of the four
timeouts. The chart below defines the four timeouts, their duration,
and when they’re used:

Preheat
To Set the Automatic Probe
Function
For best results, it is extremely important that you preheat your oven
to the desired cooking temperature before placing food items in the
oven to begin cooking. In many cooking modes, partial power from
the broiler is used to bring the oven to the preheat temperature.
Therefore, placing food items in the oven during preheat mode is not
recommended. The Viking Rapid Ready™ Preheat System is
engineered so that the oven is brought to the desired set temperature
in a manner which will provide the optimum cooking environment
based on the selected cooking mode in the shortest possible time.
Meat Probe Function
Cable
The meat probe takes the guesswork out
of roasting by cooking foods to the ideal
internal temperature. An audible alarm
sounds when the internal temperature of
the meat being roasted is reached.
Handles
1. Insert probe into the meat and slide into oven. Double oven
models have a meat probe in the upper oven only.
2. Plug the probe into the outlet located on the left interior wall of
the oven and close the oven door.
3. Press the “MEAT PROBE” button on the control panel. The
display will show “SET PROBE” and flashing preset temperature.
4. The preset temperature of 160°F or a stored temperature will be
displayed on the electronic timing center. If you desire this
temperature, the probe mode will begin after 10 seconds.
5. To set another temperature, use the keypad to enter the
desired temperature and press “SET” or “ENTER.”
• The temperature must be within the range of 120°to 190°F.
• Display alternates between cook mode and probe temperature.
• Probe temperature displays “LO” until 100°F is reached, then
displays actual temperature.
6. When the probe is within 10°F of setpoint, two long beeps will
sound. When the setpoint is reached, three long beeps will
sound and the oven will turn off. The display will alternate
between cook mode and “DONE.” One short beep will sound
every minute until the probe function is closed.
7. Press any key to close the probe function.

Using the Oven
Rack Positions
Conventional and Convection Cooking
Each oven is equipped with two standard tilt-proof racks and one
TruGlide™ rack. With the TruGlide™ rack, the bottom section remains
in the oven and the top section smoothly glides outward when pulled.
This reduces the chances of spills from items that contain a lot of juice
or liquid. This rack can be used in any of the five rack positions.
Because of variations in food density, surface texture and consistency,
some foods may be prepared more successfully using the conventional
bake setting. For this reason, conventional baking is recommended
when preparing baked goods such as custard. The user may find other
foods that are also prepared more consistently in conventional bake.
This is perfectly normal. Convection cooking is a cooking technique
which utilizes fan forced air to circulate heat throughout the entire
oven creating the optimum cooking environment. Cooking with
convection is intended when performing multi-rack baking and for
baking heavier foods. Below are tips which will allow you to get the
best results out of your oven when cooking with convection.
All ovens have five rack positions. Position 5 is the farthest from the
oven bottom. Position 1 is the closest to the oven bottom. The racks
can be easily removed and arranged at various levels. For best results
with conventional baking, do not use more than one rack at a time.
It is also recommended, when using two racks, to bake with the racks
in positions 2 and 4 or positions 3 and 5.
1. Arrange the oven racks in the desired positions BEFORE heating
the oven. If cooking on two racks at the same time, use rack
positions 2 and 4 or positions 3 and 5.
2. Turn the Oven Function selector to desired function. Cooking starts
immediately and stops when the Oven Function selector is turned
to “OFF”.
3. Set the Temperature Control to the desired temperature.

4. Place the food in the oven after the oven indicator light goes out.
• As a general rule, to convert conventional recipes to convection
recipes, reduce the temperature by 25°F (-3.9°C) and the cooking
time by approximately 10 to 15%.
• Cooking times for standard baking and convection baking will be the
same. However, if using convection to cook a single item or smaller
load, then it is possible to have 10-15% reduction in cooking time.
(Remember convection cooking is designed for multi-rack baking or
cooking large loads.)
• If cooking items which require longer than 45 minutes, then it is
possible to see a 10-15% reduction in cooking time. This is especially
true for large items cooked in the convection roast function.
• A major benefit of convection cooking is the ability to prepare foods
in quantity. The uniform air circulation makes this possible. Foods that
can be prepared on two of three racks at the same time include: pizza,
cakes, cookies, biscuits, muffins, rolls, and frozen convenience foods.
• For three-rack baking, use any combination of rack positions 2, 3, 4,
and 5. For two-rack baking, use rack positions 2 and 4 or positions
3 and 5. Remember that the racks are numbered from bottom to
top. See “Oven Features” illustration.
• Items cooked in a convection function can be easily over-baked. This
being the case, it is usually a good idea to pull items out of the oven
just before they seem to be done. Items will continue to cook right
after they are set out of the oven.
• Some recipes, especially those that are homemade, may require
adjustment and testing when converting from standard to convection
modes. If unsure how to convert a recipe, begin by preparing the
recipe in conventional bake. After achieving acceptable results, follow
the convection guidelines listed for the similar food type. If the food
is not prepared to your satisfaction during this first convection trial,
adjust only one recipe variable at a time (cooking time, rack position,
or temperature) and repeat the convection test. Continue adjusting
one recipe variable at a time until satisfactory results are achieved.
Using the Oven
Condensation
Pan Placement Tips
The oven is supplied with a system which provides a natural circulation
of air. In most cases, this natural circulation will eliminate any observed
condensation. However, there will be instances where condensation is
observed. This is NOT a sign that the oven is not working properly.
• When using large (15" x 13") flat pans or trays that cover most of
the rack, rack positions 2 or 3 produce the best results.
• When baking on more than one rack, it is recommended to use one
of the convection modes and the 2nd and 4th position or the 3rd
and 5th position for more even baking. When baking on three racks,
use any combination of positions 2, 3, 4, and 5 for more consistent
results.
• Stagger pans in opposite directions when two racks and several pans
are used in conventional bake. If possible, no pan should be directly
above another.
• Allow 1 to 2 inches of air space around all sides of each pan for even
air circulation.
Condensation can occur depending on the following factors:
• Type of food being cooked
o Steam and condensation is a natural by product of cooking any
food with high water content, such as frozen food, chicken, etc.
o Use a covered container, where practical, when cooking to
reduce the amount of condensation that forms.
• Length of cooking time
o If the oven is going to be used for prolonged periods of time,
then additional ventilation may be required.
o Do not leave food in the oven to cool after it has been cooked
and the oven has been switched off.
o To reduce condensation, ensure the oven is well heated before
placing food in the oven cavity.
• Blockage of the oven’s air flow
o If the oven air flow is changed, the oven will not perform to
specification.
• Proper installation ventilation
o The oven needs good ventilation within the installed cabinets
to perform per specification.
• Type of cabinetry the oven is installed in
o Cabinets need to meet specific temperature requirements.
o Some cabinetry materials have high water contents that can
outgas during the heating cycle.
• Ambient conditions in the kitchen including humidity and
temperature

BAKE (Two-Element Bake)
Full power heat is radiated from the bake
element in the bottom of the oven cavity
and supplemental heat is radiated from
the broil element. This function is
recommended for single-rack baking.
Many cookbooks contain recipes to be
cooked in the conventional manner.
Conventional baking/ roasting is
particularly suitable for dishes that require a high temperature. Use this
setting for baking, roasting, and casseroles.
CONV BAKE (Convection Bake)
When roasting using this setting, cool air is quickly replaced, searing
meats on the outside and retaining more juices and natural flavor on
the inside with less shrinkage. With this heating method, foods can be
baked and roasted at the same time with minimal taste transfer, even
when different dishes are involved, such as cakes, fish or meat. The hot
air system is especially economical when thawing frozen food. Use this
setting for baking and roasting.
36
The rear element only operates at full
power. There is no direct heat from the
bottom or top elements. The motorized
fan in the rear of the oven circulates air
in the oven cavity for even heating. Use
this setting for foods that require gentle
cooking such as pastries, souffles, yeast
breads, quick breads and cakes. Breads,
cookies, and other baked goods come out evenly textured with golden
crusts. No special bakeware is required. Use this function for singlerack baking, multiple-rack baking, roasting, and preparation of
complete meals. This setting is also recommended when baking large
quantities of baked goods at one time.
Baking Tips
• Make sure the oven racks are in the desired positions before you
turn the oven on.
• DO NOT open the oven door frequently during baking. If you must
open the door, the best time is during the last quarter of the baking
time.
• Bake to shortest time suggested and check for doneness before
adding more time. For baked goods, a stainless steel knife placed in
the center of the food should come clean when done.
• Use the pan size and type recommended by the recipe to ensure
best results. Cakes, quick breads, muffins, and cookies should be
baked in shiny, reflective pans for light, golden crusts. Avoid the use
of old, darkened pans. Warped, dented, stainless steel and tincoated pans heat unevenly and will not give uniform baking results.
37
Operation
Operation
The bottom element operates at full
power, and the top broil element
operates at supplemental power. The
heated air is circulated by the motorized
fan in the rear of the oven providing a
more even heat distribution. This
even circulation of air equalizes the
temperature throughout the oven cavity
and eliminates the hot and cold spots found in conventional ovens. A
major benefit of convection baking is the ability to prepare food in
quantity using multiple racks—a feature not possible in a standard
oven.

Baking problems can occur for many reasons. Check the chart below
for the causes and remedies for the most common problems. It is
important to remember that the temperature setting and cooking
times you are accustomed to using with your previous oven may vary
slightly from those required with this oven. If you find this to be true, it
is necessary for you to adjust your recipes and cooking times
accordingly.
Roasting
Roasting
CONV ROAST
(Convection Roast)
The convection element runs in
conjunction with the inner and outer
broil elements. This transfer of heat
(mainly from the convection element)
seals moisture inside large roasts. Use
this setting for whole turkeys, whole
chickens, hams, etc.
Note: You can also roast foods using bake settings. See the “Baking”
section for additional information.
Roasting Tips
• As a general rule, to convert conventional recipes to convection
recipes, reduce the temperature by 25°F (-3.9°C) and the cooking
time by approximately 10 to 15%.
• ALWAYS roast meats fat side up in a shallow pan using a roasting
rack. No basting is required when the fat side is up. DO NOT add
water to the pan as this will cause a steamed effect. Roasting is a dry
heat process.
• Poultry should be placed breast side up on a rack in a shallow pan.
Brush poultry with melted butter, margarine, or oil before and during
roasting.
• For convection roasting, DO NOT use pans with tall sides as this will
interfere with the circulation of heated air over the food.
• If using a cooking bag, foil tent, or other cover, use the conventional
bake setting rather than either convection setting.
44
• When using a meat thermometer, insert the probe halfway into the
center of the thickest portion of the meat. (For poultry, insert the
thermometer probe between the body and leg into the thickest part
of the inner thigh.) The tip of the probe should not touch bone,
fat, or gristle to ensure an accurate reading. Check the meat
temperature halfway through the recommended roasting time. After
reading the thermometer once, insert it 1⁄2 inch (1.3 cm) further into
the meat, then take a second reading. If the second temperature
registers below the first, continue cooking the meat.
• Roasting times ALWAYS vary according to the size, shape and quality
of meats and poultry. Less tender cuts of meat are best prepared in
the conventional bake setting and may require moist cooking
techniques. Remove roasted meats from the oven when the
thermometer registers 5°F (-15°C) to 10ºF (-12°C) lower than the
desired doneness. The meat will continue to cook after removal from
the oven. Allow roasts to stand 15 to 20 minutes after roasting in
order to make carving easier.
For many foods, especially roasts and poultry, internal food temperature
is the best test for doneness. The meat probe takes the guesswork out
of roasting by cooking foods to the exact doneness you want.
Note: Double oven models have a probe in the upper oven only.
Use of probes other than the one provided with this product may result
in damage to the probe. Use the handles of the probe and plug when
inserting and removing them from the meat and outlet.
• To avoid damaging your probe, DO NOT use tongs to pull on the
cable when removing.
• To avoid breaking the probe, make sure food is completely defrosted
before inserting.
• To prevent possible burns, DO NOT unplug the probe from the
outlet until the oven has cooled.
• NEVER leave the probe inside the oven during a self-cleaning cycle.
• DO NOT store the probe in the oven.

ALWAYS use the broiler pan and grid supplied with each oven. The
hot air must be allowed to circulate around the item being roasted.
DO NOT cover what is being roasted. Convection roasting seals in
juices quickly for a moist, tender product. Poultry will have a light,
crispy skin and meats will be browned, not dry or burned. Cook meats
and poultry directly from the refrigerator. There is no need for meat or
poultry to stand at room temperature.

Convection Roast Instructions
After preparing the meat and placing on broiler pan, follow these
steps for proper probe placement.
Use this function when roasting tender cuts of meat or poultry of
any size.
• Lay the probe on the outside of the meat along the top or side and
mark with your finger where the edge of the meat comes to on the
probe. The point should rest in the center of the thickest meaty part
of the roast.
• Insert the probe completely into the meat. It should not touch the
bone, fat, or gristle. For roasts with no bone, insert the probe into
the meatiest part of the roast. For bone-in ham or lamb, insert the
probe into the center of the lowest large muscle or joint. Insert the
probe into the meatiest part of the inner thigh from below and
parallel to the leg of a whole turkey.
• When setting the probe temperature, it is recommended to set the
temperature about 10°F (4°C) lower than desired internal
temperature. The meat will continue to cook when removed from
the oven and will reach the desired doneness while “standing”.

The top element operates at full power.
This function is exactly the same as
regular broiling with the additional
benefit of air circulation by the
motorized fan in the rear of the oven.
Smoke is reduced since the airflow also
reduces peak temperatures on the
food. Use this setting for broiling thick
cuts of meats.
HI BROIL
Heat radiates from both broil elements, located in the top of the oven
cavity, at full power. The distance between the foods and the broil
elements determines broiling speed. For fast broiling, food may be as
close as 2“ (5 cm) to the broil element or on the top rack. Fast broiling
is best for meats where rare to medium doneness is desired. Use this
setting for broiling small and average cuts of meat.
MED BROIL
Inner and outer broil elements pulse on and off to produce less heat
for slow broiling. Allow about 4” (10 cm) between the top surface of
the food and the broil element. Slow broiling is best for chicken and
ham in order to broil food without over-browning it. Use this setting for
broiling small and average cuts of meat.
LOW BROIL
This mode uses only a fraction of the available power to the inner broil
element for delicate top-browning. The inner broil element is on for
only part of the time. Use this setting to gently brown meringue on
racks 3 or 4 in 3-4 minutes.

Broiling Tips
Broiling Instructions
• ALWAYS use a broiler pan and grid for broiling. They are designed
to provide drainage of excess liquid and fat away from the cooking
surface to help prevent splatter, smoke, and fire.
• To keep meat from curling, slit fatty edge.
• Brush chicken and fish with butter several times as they broil to
prevent drying out. To prevent sticking, lightly grease broiler tray.
• Broil on first side for slightly more than half the recommended time,
season, and turn. Season second side just before removing.
• ALWAYS pull rack out to stop position before turning or removing
food.
• Use tongs or a spatula to turn meats. NEVER pierce meat with a
fork, as this allows the juices to escape.
• Remove the broiler pan from the oven when you remove the food.
Drippings will bake onto the pan if it is left in the heated oven after
broiling. While pan is hot, place damp paper towel over grid. Drizzle
with liquid dishwashing detergent and pour water over grid. This will
make cleaning of the pan easier, or the broiler pan can be lined with
aluminum foil to make cleaning easier. Be sure the foil extends up
the side of the pan. Although it is not recommended, the grid can
also be covered with foil. Be sure to slit openings to conform with
the openings in the grid so melted fat can drain through to prevent
spattering, smoking, or the possibility of grease fire.
Broiling is a dry-heat cooking method using direct or radiant heat.
It is used for small, individualized cuts such as steaks, chops, and
patties. Broiling speed is determined by the distance between the
food and the broil element. Choose the rack position based on
desired results.
Conventional broiling (LOW, MED or HI BROIL) is most successful for
cuts of meat 1-2 inches thick and is also more suitable for flat pieces of
meat. Convection broiling has the advantage of broiling food slightly
quicker than conventional. Convection broiling of meats produces
better results, especially for thick cuts. The meat sears on the outside
and retains more juices and natural flavor inside with less shrinkage.
To Use Broil:
1. Arrange the oven rack in the desired position before turning the
broiler on.
2. Place the food in the center of the cold broiler pan and grid
supplied with your oven, and then place the broiler pan in the oven.
3. Select “UPPER OVEN” or “LOWER OVEN.”
4. Set the Oven Function Selector to “BROIL.” Display will show
“BROIL HIGH” and “ON” will flash. Medium and low displays will
show “CONV BROIL M” and “CONV BROIL L.”
5. Choose power level for BROIL:
a. For “HIGH BROIL,” press “SET.”
b. For “MEDIUM BROIL,” press down arrow key once. Display will
change to MED, then press “SET.”
c. For “LOW BROIL,” press down arrow key twice. Display will
change to “LO,” then press “SET.”
6. Close the door to the oven. With closed-door broiling, the broil
element might cycle on and off if an extended broiling time is
required. A built-in smoke "eliminator" in the top of the oven will
help reduce smoke and odors.
7. When cooking is complete, press the “OFF” button for the selected
oven.
Oven Off
The oven will continue operating until you press the “OFF” button for

Operation
Operation
Convection broiling has the advantage of broiling food slightly more
quickly than conventional. Convection broiling of meats also produces
better results, especially for thick cuts. This is because meat sears on
the outside and retains more juices and natural flavor inside with less
shrinkage.
Warming Modes
Convection Dehydrate
This oven is designed not only to cook,
but also to dehydrate fruits and
vegetables. With this function, a
motorized fan in the rear of the oven
circulates warm air. Over a period of
time, the water is removed from the food
by evaporation. Removal of water inhibits
growth of microorganisms and retards
the activity of enzymes. It is important to remember that dehydration
does not improve quality; only fresh, top-quality foods should be
dehydrated in your oven.
To use Dehydrate:
1. Prepare the food as recommended.
2. Choose and press “UPPER OVEN” or “LOWER OVEN.”
3. Arrange the food on drying racks (not included with the oven, but
available from specialty cooking dealers).
4. Select “DEHYDRATE” from the oven function control panel.
5. Press “SET” or “ENTER.” Dehydrate mode will begin immediately.
You must carefully check the food during the dehydration process to
ensure that it does not catch fire.
Convection Defrost
This oven can defrost frozen food. With
the temperature control off, a motorized
fan in the rear of the oven circulates air.
This fan accelerates natural defrosting of
the food without heat.
To use Defrost:
1. Place the frozen food on a baking
sheet.
2. Choose and press “UPPER OVEN” or “LOWER OVEN.”
3. Select “DEFROST” from the oven function control panel.
4. Press “SET” or “ENTER” to begin defrosting. The defrost mode will
begin and the defrost temperature will be displayed.
WARNING
To avoid sickness and food waste, DO NOT allow defrosted food to
remain in the oven for more than 2 hours.
Proofing
This function uses a low temperature to
create an optimal environment for the
yeast to rise in many types of dough.
This setting is designed for allowing
yeast dough to rise to a temperature
between 85°F (29°C) and 100°F ( 38°C).
Yeast doughs rise or “proof” best when
the temperature is between 85°F (29°C) and 100°F (38°C). To make
sure the dough is warm enough, cover the bowl loosely with plastic
wrap and/or cloth towel.
To use Proof:
1. Place the dough on a baking sheet.
2. Choose and press “UPPER OVEN” or “LOWER OVEN.”
3. Select “PROOF” from the oven function control panel.
4. Press “SET” or “ENTER” to begin proofing.
Place the bowl on the center rack of the oven and close door. When
you think the dough has doubled in size, lightly poke two fingers
about 1/2” (1.3 cm) into the dough. If the indentation remains, the
dough has risen enough.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning and Maintenance
Any piece of equipment works better and lasts longer when
maintained properly and kept clean. Cooking equipment is no
exception. Your oven must be kept clean and maintained properly.
Broiler Pan and Grid
Oven Surfaces
Oven Racks
Several different finishes have been used in your electric oven.
Cleaning instructions for each surface are given below and continued
on page 40. Your oven features a Self-Clean cycle for the oven interior.
See page 41 for complete instructions. NEVER USE AMMONIA, STEEL
WOOL PADS OR ABRASIVE CLOTHS, CLEANSERS, OVEN CLEANERS,
OR ABRASIVE POWDERS. THEY CAN PERMANENTLY DAMAGE
YOUR OVEN.
Clean with detergent and hot water. Stubborn spots can be scoured
with a soap-filled steel wool pad. DO NOT CLEAN THE OVEN RACKS
OR RACK SUPPORT USING THE SELF-CLEAN CYCLE. They could
sustain damage due to the extreme heat of the Self-Clean cycle.
Control Knobs
MAKE SURE ALL THE CONTROL KNOBS POINT TO THE OFF
POSITION BEFORE REMOVING. Pull the knobs straight off. Wash in
detergent and warm water. Dry completely and replace by pushing
firmly onto stem.
Clean with detergent and hot water. For stubborn spots, use a soap-filled
steel wool pad.
Meat Probe
The meat probe may be cleaned with soap and water or a soap-filled
scouring pad. Cool the probe before cleaning. Scour stubborn spots
with a soap-filled scouring pad, rinse and dry.
• DO NOT immerse the meat probe in water.
• DO NOT store the probe in the oven.
Stainless Steel Parts
Product Care
Product Care
Some stainless steel parts may have a protective wrap, which must be
peeled off. All stainless steel body parts should be wiped regularly with
hot, soapy water at the end of each cooling period and with liquid
cleaner designed for this material when soapy water will not do the job.
If build-up occurs, DO NOT use steel wool, or abrasive cloths, cleaners,
or powders. If it is necessary to scrape stainless steel surface to remove
encrusted material, soak area with hot, wet towels to loosen the material,
then use a wooden or nylon spatula or scraper. DO NOT use a metal
knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape stainless steel surfaces.
Scratches are almost impossible to remove.

Self-Clean Cycle
Self-Clean Cycle
This oven features an automatic pyrolytic self-cleaning cycle. During
this cycle, the oven reaches elevated temperatures in order to burn off
soil and deposits. An integral smoke eliminator helps reduce odors
associated with the soil burn off. A powder ash residue is left in the
bottom of the oven after completion of the self-clean cycle. The door
latch is automatically activated after selecting the self-clean setting.
The latch ensures that the door cannot be opened while the oven
interior is at clean temperatures.
To start the Self-Clean cycle:
Before starting the Self-Clean cycle:
1. Remove the oven racks, and any other items/utensils from the oven.
The high heat generated during the cleaning cycle can discolor,
warp, and damage these items. DO NOT use foil or liners in the
oven. During the self-clean cycle, foil can burn or melt and damage
the oven surface.
2. Wipe off any large spills from the oven bottom and sides. NEVER
use oven cleaners inside a self-cleaning oven or on raised portions
of the door.
3. Some areas of the oven must be cleaned by hand before the cycle
begins. Soils in these areas will be baked on and very difficult to
clean if not removed first. Clean the door up to the gasket, the
door frame, and up to 2” (5.1 cm) inside the frame with detergent
and hot water. Rinse thoroughly and dry.
1. Close the door completely.
2. Select “UPPER OVEN” or “LOWER
OVEN.” “SELECT MODE” will appear
in the display for the selected oven.
3. Press “SELF CLEAN” from the oven
function control panel.
4. Press “SET” or “ENTER.” At this time,
“SELF CLEAN” will appear in the
display. The door lock indicator light
will remain on until the self-clean is completed or interrupted and
the oven temperature drops to a safe temperature. A complete
cycle takes approximately 3-1/2 hours, with an additional 30
minutes needed for the oven to cool down enough for the door
latch to disengage.
Note: A whirring fan noise will be heard during the self-clean cycle and
will continue to run for the 3-1/2 hour duration of the self-clean cycle.
5. The timer will count down from 4 hours. When the cycle is
completed, press the “OFF” button for the selected oven.
6. When the oven has completely cooled, open the door and remove
any ash from the oven surfaces with a damp cloth.
7. To cancel or interrupt the self-cleaning cycle, press the “OFF”
button for the selected oven.
WARNING
BURN OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Make sure all controls are “OFF” and oven is COOL before cleaning.
Failure to do so can result in burns or electrical shock.
DO NOT touch the exterior portions of the oven after self-cleaning
cycle has begun, since some parts become extremely hot to the touch!
During the first few times the self-cleaning feature is used, there may
be some odor and smoking from the curing of the binder in the highdensity insulation used in the oven. When the insulation is thoroughly
cured, this odor will disappear. During subsequent self-cleaning
cycles, you may sense an odor characteristic of high temperatures.
Keep the kitchen well-vented during the self-cleaning cycle.
