BUILT-IN OVEN SAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety
messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.”
These words mean:
DANGER
WARNING
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow
instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
injury to persons, or damage when using the oven, follow
basic precautions, including the following:
■ Proper Installation – Be sure the oven is properly
installed and grounded by a qualified technician.
■ Never Use the Oven for Warming or Heating the Room.
■ Do Not Leave Children Alone – Children should not be
left alone or unattended in area where oven is in use.
They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part
of the oven.
■ Wear Proper Apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn while using the oven.
■ User Servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of the
oven unless specifically recommended in the manual. All
other servicing should be referred to a qualified
technician.
■ Storage in Oven – Flammable materials should not be
stored in an oven.
■ Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires – Smother fire or
flame or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
■
■
■
■
■
■
Use Only Dry Potholders – Moist or damp potholders on hot
surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let
potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or
other bulky cloth.
Use Care When Opening Door – Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing food.
Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers – Build-up of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.
Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.
Placement of Oven Racks – Always place oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved
while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating
element in oven.
DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR
SURFACES OF OVEN – Heating elements may be hot even
though they are dark in color. 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 heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until
they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the
oven may become hot enough to cause burns – among
these surfaces are oven vent openings and surfaces near
these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors.

Aluminum Foil
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the oven bottom
finish, do not line the oven bottom with any type of foil or liner.
■ For best cooking results, do not cover entire rack with foil
because air must be able to move freely.
■
To catch spills, place foil on rack below dish. Make sure foil is
at least ½" (1.3 cm) larger than the dish and that it is turned
up at the edges.
Positioning Racks and Bakeware
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the porcelain
finish, do not place food or bakeware directly on the oven door or
bottom.
Racks
■
Position racks before turning on the oven.
■
Do not position racks with bakeware on them.
■
Make sure racks are level.
To Remove Oven Racks:
Pull rack straight out to the stop position, raise the front edge,
and then pull out.
To Replace Oven Racks:
Place rack on the rack support in the oven. Tilt the front edge up
slightly, and slide rack back until it clears the stop position. Lower
front and slide back into the oven.
Pull the rack out to the stop position to be sure it is positioned
correctly. Then return it to its normal position.

Rack Positions
Rack 4: Use for 2-rack cooking.
Rack 3: Used for most broiling.
Rack 2: Used for most 1-rack baking of cookies or biscuits on a
cookie sheet; baking cakes, bundt cakes or breads; 2rack baking; roasting meats; cooking larger food; or
broiling thicker items such as split chicken halves.
Rack 1: Used for roasting turkey, baking angel food cake, pie
shells, frozen pies, souffles or bread.
Multiple Rack Cooking
2-rack: Use rack positions 2 and 4 or 1 and 4, depending on
baking results. Use racks 1 and 4 when using two cookie sheets.
Do not place two cookie sheets on one rack.
NOTES:
■ For best baking results of cakes, cookies or biscuits, bake on
1 rack. Position rack so food is in the center of the oven.
Allow 2" (5.1 cm) between the edge of the bakeware and the
oven walls or adjacent bakeware.
■
If cooking on two racks, stagger pans so one is not directly
over the other.
■
To cook food evenly, hot air must be able to circulate. Allow
2" (5.1 cm) of space around bakeware and oven walls.

The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven, and
should not be blocked or covered. Blocking or covering the vent
will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking results. Do not
set plastics, paper or other items that could melt or burn near the
oven vent.
Baking
Before baking, position racks according to the “Positioning
Racks and Bakeware” section.
Preheating:
Preheating is necessary for proper baking results. It is not
necessary for roasting. Allow the oven to heat until the desired
oven temperature is reached, approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
Selecting a temperature higher than desired will not preheat the
oven any faster. Preheating at a higher temperature may have a
negative effect on baking results.
To Bake or Roast:
Uneven browning
Stoneware/Baking
stone
■ Crisp crusts
■
Follow manufacturer’s instructions.
Ovenproof

glass or ceramic
■ Brown, crisp
crusts
■
May need to reduce baking
temperatures slightly.
To turn the oven on, both the Oven Temperature and Selector
knobs must be set. The oven will not operate if the Selector knob
is left in the OFF position.
To turn the oven off, turn both knobs to the OFF position.
To set the oven for baking or roasting:
1. Turn the Oven Temperature knob to the desired temperature
and the Selector knob to BAKE.
2. Allow the oven to preheat for 10 to 15 minutes. The indicator
light, located below the knob, will turn off when the oven
reaches the preset temperature.
3. Place the food in the center of the oven.
4. When finished, turn the Oven Temperature knob and Selector
knob to OFF.
5. Remove food from the oven.
Double Wall Oven - Lower Oven
The lower oven is equipped with only a bake element. For best
results, use the upper oven for delicate cooking such as cakes,
cookies, biscuits or pies. Use either oven for non-critical types of
cooking such as meats or casseroles.
Broiling is done in the upper oven.
To set the lower oven for baking or roasting:
1. Turn the Lower Oven knob to the desired temperature setting.
NOTE: The Selector knob is not used with the lower oven.
2. Allow the oven to preheat for 10 to 15 minutes. The indicator
light, located below the knob, will turn off when the oven
reaches the preset temperature.
3. Place the food in the center of the oven.
4. When finished, turn the Lower Oven knob to OFF.
5. Remove food from the oven.
6
Broiling
Broiling uses direct radiant heat to cook food. The lower the
temperature, the slower the cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly
shaped pieces of meat, fish and poultry may cook better at lower
broiling temperatures.
■ For best results, use the broiler pan and grid. It is designed to
drain juices and help avoid spatter and smoke.
■
For proper draining, do not cover the grid with foil. The
bottom of the pan may be lined with aluminum foil for easier
cleaning.
■
Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit the remaining fat on
the edges to avoid curling.
■
Pull out oven rack to stop position before turning or removing
food. Use tongs to turn food to avoid the loss of juices. Very
thin cuts of fish, poultry or meat may not need to be turned.
■
After broiling, remove the pan from the oven when removing
the food. Drippings will bake on the pan if left in the heated
oven, making cleaning more difficult.
Before broiling, position rack according to the Broiling Chart.
Position food on grid in the broiler pan, then place it in the center
of the oven rack. Close the door to the broil stop position (about
6" [15.2 cm]) to ensure proper broiling temperature.
To Broil:
1. Open door to broil stop position.
2. Turn both the Oven Temperature and Selector knobs to
BROIL.
NOTE: To broil at a lower temperature, turn the Selector knob
to BROIL and the Oven Temperature knob to 350°F (177°C).
3. For best results, remove broiler pan and preheat broil element
3 minutes. Broil times in the following chart are based on a
3-minute preheat.
4. When finished, turn both the Oven Temperature and Selector
knobs to OFF.
NOTE: Broil times may need to be increased if wall oven is
installed on a 208-volt circuit.
BROILING CHART
Broil times are based on a 3 minute preheat. For best results,
place food 3" (7.0 cm) or more from the broil element. Times are
guidelines only and may need to be adjusted for individual tastes.
Turn meat halfway through cooking time. Recommended rack
positions are numbered from the bottom (1) to the top (4). For
diagram, see the “Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section.

Are baked items too brown on the bottom? Move rack to
higher position in the oven.
■
Are pie crust edges browning early? Use aluminum foil to
cover the edge of the crust.
Cooling fan runs during baking or broiling
■
It is normal for the fan to automatically run while the oven is in
use or for some time after the oven is shut off.
Oven cooking results not what expected
■
Is the proper temperature set? Double-check the recipe in
a reliable cookbook.
■
Was the oven preheated? See “Baking” and “Broiling”
sections.
