Place the oven racks where you need them before
turning on the oven.
Where to place pans:
WHEN YOU HAVE
PLACE
1 pan
In center of the oven rack.
• Be sure the rack(s) is level.
2 pans
Side by side or slightly
• Use pot holders or oven mitts to protect your hands
if rack(s) must be moved while the oven is hot.
3 or 4 pans
In opposite corners on each
oven rack. Stagger pans so
no pan is directly over
another.
• To move a rack, pull it out to the stop position, raise
the front edge and lift it out.
• For best performance, cook on one rack. Place the
rack so the top of the food will be centered in the
oven.
• For best results allow 2 inches of space around each
pan and between pans
and oven walls. 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.

Although your new oven is properly adjusted to
provide accurate temperatures, it may cook faster or
slower than your old oven.
If, after using the oven for a period of time, you are not
satisfied with the baking/roasting results, you can change
the offset temperature by following the steps below.
NOTE: DO NOT measure oven temperature with a
thermometer. Opening the oven door will lower the
oven temperature and give you an inaccurate reading.

• Use only the broiler pan and grid provided. They are
designed to drain extra juices from the cooking
surface. This drainage helps prevent spatter and
smoke.
• To make sure the juices drain well, do not cover the
grid with foil.
• Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit the fat on
the edges to prevent curling.
• Use tongs to turn meat to avoid losing juices.
• Pull out oven rack to stop position before turning or
removing food.
• 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.
To custom

Food Poisoning Hazard
Do not let food sit in oven more than one hour
before or after cooking.
Doing so can result in food poisoning or
sickness.
The electronic MEALTIMER control will turn the oven
on and off at times you set, even when you are not
around.
Delayed time baking/roasting is ideal for foods that do
not need a preheated oven, like meats and casseroles.
Do not use delayed time cooking for cakes, cookies,
etc. - they will not rise properly.
Before using the electronic MEALTIMER control,
make sure the clock is set to the correct time of
day. (See "Setting the clock" earlier in this section.)

Burn Hazard
Do not touch the oven during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Keep children away from oven during Self-Cleaning

Do not use commercial oven cleaners in your oven.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns, or illness from inhaling
dangerous fumes.

you:
NOTE: DO NOT dean, move, or bend the gasket. You
may get poor cHeaning, baking and roasting.
DO NOT
hand-clean
gasket
® Hand-dean the areas shown. They do not get hot
enough during the SeHf-CHeaningcycHe for soiH to
burn away. Use hot water and detergent or a soapy,
steeFwooH pad for cHeaning.
Hand-clean
frame
® Do not let water, cleaner, etc, enter shots on door
and frame.
® Remove the broiHer pan and grid and any
cookwareibakeware being stored in the oven.
® Wipe out any Hoose soiHor grease. This will heHp
reduce smoke during the SeHf-CHeaningcycle.
® Wipe up food spills containing sugar as soon as
possiMe after the oven cooHs down. When sugar is
heated to a high temperature in the Self-Cleaning
cycle, the high temperature can cause the sugar to
burn and react with the porcelain. This can cause
etching, pitting or faint white spots.
® 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 the "Cleaning chart" in the
"Caring for Your Range" section.) If you clean the
racks in the Self-Cleaning cycle, place them on the
2nd and 4th rack guides. (The 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.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely
sensitive to the fumes given off during the SelfCleaning cycle. Exposure to the fumes may result in
death to certain birds. Always move birds to another
closed and well ventilated room.
TIPS:
• Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the
Self-Cleaning cycle to help get rid of heat, odors,
and smoke.
• Clean the oven before it gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning a very soiled oven takes longer and
results in more smoke than usual.
• Do not block the vent during the Self-Cleaning
cycle. Air must move freely for best cleaning results.
• Do not leave plastic utensils on the cooktop. They
may melt.
• Remove any combustible items, such as paper
napkins, from the storage drawer. This includes
utensils with plastic handles that can become
overheated and melt.
• Do not leave any foil in the oven during the
Self-Cleaning cycle. Foil could burn or melt and
damage the oven surface.
• The oven light will not work during the
Self-Cleaning cycle.
