This symbol will help alert you to situations that may cause bodily injury or property damage.
• Remove all tape and packaging wrap before using the
appliance. Destroy the carton and plastic bags after
unpacking the appliance. Never allow children to play
with packaging material.
Stepping, leaning or sitting on the door or
drawer can result in serious injuries and may also cause
damage to the warmer drawer. Do not allow children to
climb or play around the drawer. An open drawer, when hot,
may cause burns.
• Proper Installation—Be sure your appliance is properly
installed and grounded by a qualified technician in
accordance with the National Electrical Code ANSI/
NFPA No. 70—latest edition in the U.S. A., or CSA
C22.1, Part 1 in Canada, and local code requirements.
Install only per installation instructions provided in this
manual.
• Storage in or on Appliance—Flammable materials
should not be stored in the drawer. This includes paper,
plastic and cloth items, such as cookbooks, plasticware
and towels, as well as flammable liquids. Do not store
explosives, such as aerosol cans, on or near the warmer
drawer. Flammable materials may explode and result in fire
or property damage.
Ask your dealer to recommend a qualified technician and an
authorized repair service. Know how to disconnect the
electrical power to the drawer at the circuit breaker or fuse box
in case of an emergency.
• Do not leave children alone. Children should not be left
alone or unattended in the area where an appliance is
in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any
part of the appliance.

appliance unless specifically recommended in the
manuals. All other servicing should be done only by a
qualified technician to reduce the risk of personal injury and
damage to the appliance.

Before Setting Control
Arranging Warmer Drawer Rack Positions
Set the warmer drawer rack in the vertical position as shown below.
The rack can be used in 2 ways:
• In the upright position to allow low profile food items to be placed both under and on top of the rack (for example, rolls or
biscuits on top of the rack and a casserole dish under).
• In the downward position to allow you to place light weight food items and empty dishware (for example, rolls or pastries
and dinner plates).

Setting Control
Use the warmer drawer to keep hot
foods hot such as: vegetables, gravies,
meats, casseroles, biscuits and rolls,
pastries and heated dinner plates.
The warmer drawer is equipped with a
catch which may require a small amount
of force when opening and closing the
drawer.
To Operate the Warmer Drawer
The purpose of the warmer drawer is to keep hot cooked foods at serving
temperature. Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food
in the warmer drawer.
All food placed in the warmer drawer should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil
to maintain moisture and softness. Do not cover crisp foods. Do not use plastic
wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the drawer and be very difficult
to clean.
Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven
use in the warmer drawer.
Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from the warmer drawer
as cookware and plates will be hot.
Indicator Light
The indicator light is located above the thermostat control knob. It turns on when
the control is set, and stays on until the control is turned off. Make sure indicator
light is off when removing food from drawer.
To Set the Thermostat Control
The thermostat control knob is used to select the temperature of the warmer
drawer. It is located at the right side of the warmer drawer in the open position. The
temperatures are approximate, and are designated by HI, MED and LO. The
control can be set to the three settings, or anywhere between.

1. To set the thermostat, push in and turn the knob to the desired setting.
2. For best results, preheat the drawer before adding food. An empty drawer will
reach the LO setting in about 12 minutes, the MED setting in about 15
minutes, and the HI setting in about 18 minutes.
3. When done, turn the thermostat control to OFF.
Temperature Selection
Refer to the chart in the side column for recommended settings. If a particular food
is not listed, start with the medium setting. If more crispness is desired, remove
the lid or aluminum foil.
Most foods can be kept at serving temperatures by using the medium setting.
When a combination of foods are to be kept warm (for instance, a meat with
2 vegetables and rolls), use the high setting.
Refrain from opening the warmer drawer while in use to eliminate loss of heat from
the drawer. Open only for adding or removing food.
To Warm Serving Bowls and Plates
Heat bowls and plates on the LO setting. Place empty dishes on the rack to raise
them off drawer bottom. To further heat dishes or to heat fine china, check with
the manufacturer for maximum heat tolerance.
