To obtain the best cooking results possible, you must operate your oven properly. 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:
FOOD
Frozen pies, large
roasts, turkeys
RACK POSITION
Lowest level or 2nd
level from bottom
Angel and bundt
cakes, most quick
breads, yeast breads,
casseroles, meats
2nd level from
bottom
Cookies, biscuits,
muffins, cakes,
nonfrozen pies
2nd or 3rd level
from bottom
When baking on two racks, arrange racks
on bottom and third level from bottom.
6
NOTE: For recommended rack placement
when broiling, see “Broiling rack position
chart” on page 14.
Personal Injury Hazard
l 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
may result in personal injury.
For best
air circulation
The 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 l/2 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
Do not allow foil to
elements because
and could result in

tips
Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling.
They are designed to drain excess liquid
and fat away from the cooking surface to
help prevent spatter, smoke or fire.
Refer to a broiling chart in a reliable
cookbook for correct broiling times.
After broiling, remove the broiler pan
from the oven when you remove the food.
Drippings will bake on the pan if it is left in
the heated oven.
14
Fire Hazard
Place meat the correct distance from
the element. Meat placed too close to
the element may 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
may 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.

“Oven peeking” may cause heat loss,
longer cooking times and unsatisfactory
baking results. Rely on your timer to keep
track of the cooking time.
Plan your meals for the most efficient use

The Self-Cleaning cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning
the oven interior. Like with the other functions of your oven, you operate the Self-Cleaning
cycle with the easy-to-use electronic control. Please review the instructions in this section to
keep your oven spotless.
How
the cycle
works
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.
Your oven is preset for a 3-hour SelfCleaning 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 20.)
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.

Before you start the Self-Cleaning
cycle,
make sure you:
l 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.
l Turn
off the oven light. Use during the
Self-Cleaning cycle will shorten the life of
the bulb.

STOP
Remove the broiler pan grid and any
pots and pans being stored in the oven.
NOTE You can clean the broiler pan and
grid in the oven if you have first removed
most of the soil by hand-cleaning or a
dishwasher. If most of the soil is not
removed, too much smoking will occur.
l Wipe out any loose
soil or grease. This
will help reduce smoke during the cleaning
cycle.
l 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 23.) 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.

NOTE: Do not force the Lock Lever. You
could bend or break it. The lever is designed
to stay locked until the oven is cool enough
to safely open. Wait until it moves freely.
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.

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.
l
l
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 19.
Do not use the oven light during the
Self-Cleaning cycle. Use during the SelfCleaning cycle will shorten the life of the
bulb.

Electrical Shock and
Personal Injury Hazard
l Make sure oven and light bulb are
cool and power to the oven has been
turned off before replacing the light
bulb. Failure to do so could result in

from high oven temperatures. Because bulb cover is made of glass, be
careful not to drop it. Broken glass
could cause injury.
To replace
the oven
light:
1. Turn off power at the main power supply.
2. Remove the glass bulb cover in the back
of the oven by screwing it out counterclockwise.
3. Remove the light bulb from its socket.
Replace the bulb with a 40-watt appliance bulb.
4. Replace the bulb cover by screwing it in
clockwise. Turn on power at the main
power supply.
NOTE: Do not use the oven light during the
Self-Cleaning cycle. Use during the SelfCleaning cycle will shorten the life of the
