Broil Feature:
You might want to broil some foods slower than others. Broiling
can be slowed down by setting a lower temperature on the Oven Temperature Control Knob instead of “BROIL.” Using a lower temperature will
cause the broil element to turn on and off during the broiling so that the
food broils more slowly.
When the Oven Temperature Control Knob is on “BROIL.” the
Broil Element heats all the time. Set the temperature lower and it heats
some of the time. The lower the temperature setting. the shorter are the
periods of heating.
NOTE: The Oven Selector must be in the “BROIL” position in
order for the Broil Element to heat.
Resetting
Lower: move black part
toward “LO.”
One notch equals about
10°F (5°C).
Setting

part toward “HI.”
One notch equals about
10°F (S’C).
the Oven Temperature
Control
Knob:
Does your new oven seem hotter or colder than your old oven?
The temperatures in older ovens often shift very gradually. getting hotter
or colder without the user really noticing the change. Your new oven is
properly adjusted to provide accurate temperatures, but when compared
to your old range. the new design may give you different baking results. If
you think that the temperature setting on your range needs to be hotter or
colder, you can adjust the Temperature Control Knob by yourself.
To adjust the setting, first pull the Oven Temperature Control Knob
straight off. On the back. just across from the locking screw, are a row of
notches on the black part of the knob and one tooth on the chrome part.
To set your oven about lO”F(5”C) cooler. remove the locking
screw and move the row of notches one notch closer-to “LO.” To set your
oven about lO”F(5’C) warmer, move the row of notches one notch
closer to “HI.” Each notch equals about lO”F(5”C).
Replace the locking screw.

vent
There is an oven vent under the right rear surface element. When
the oven is on. heated air will escape through it. A vent is needed for air
circulation in the oven during baking. You can cook on this surface unit
while the oven IS on A warm pan of food will stay warm on this unit while
the oven is on. It may be warm enough to melt butter. too.
Do not try to save heat or energy by blocking
the vent. Poor
baking can result. Plastic utensils may melt if they are over the vent
while the oven is on.

Cleaning
ovens
Oven Works:
A standard oven has walls with a smooth porcelain enamel finish.
A Continuous Cleaning Oven also has a porcelain enamel finish with one
important difference: instead of being smooth, like glass. the walls of a
Continuous Cleaning Oven are a little rougher.. like the surface of a brick.
A fat spatter will form a solid drop on a smooth surface But on the rougher
surface in a Continuous Cleaning Oven. a fat spatter spreads out to a very
thin layer.
Think of the difference between a drop of water on a piece of
waxed paper and one on a paper towel. The water on the waxed paper
will stay together in a bead. The water on the rougher paper towel will
spread out over a larger area This is about what happens to a fat spatter in
a Continuous Cleaning Oven. Instead of a bead of fat that turns into black
charred material when heated. the fat spatter spreads out. Then, when
the oven is used for baking and roasting. the fat gradually burns away.
The rougher surface returns to a presentably clean condition.
This is a gradual process: it does not happen right away. The walls
continuously clean themselves, but only when the oven is set for the
medium to high temperatures
during baking or roasting. The oven can
be presentably clean iwith little or no hand cleaning.. depending on how
It is used.
The continuous cleaning process does not apply to uncoated parts
like the lower oven window. oven racks and the inslde of the upper oven
door.
Soils that are removed..
and those that are not:
Fat spatters from meat roasting. oven frying and broiling are the
usual oven soils. The5 can be continuously cleaned away most of the
time
Spillovers from pies and casseroles. sugars and starches. and other
soils that fall to the bottom of the oven are very hard to remove. That is
why heavy-duty aluminum foil is placed on the bottom of the oven. It
helps catch these spillovers and the foil can be replaced when necessary.
Caring
for your Continuous
Cleaning
Ovens:
Follow trusted recipes for baking. roasting and broiling. They will
give time. temperature and pan recommendations to help avoid
smoke. spatter and spillovers.

.
Keplacing
aluminum
foil on the oven bottom:
You can use the heavyduty l&inch (45 cm) aluminum foil found
in most grocery store5 Or you can order an aluminum foil kit (Part
Number 2414:-O) from your WhIrlpool Dealer.
1. When cutting thtl foil, make sure it is long enough to cover the
bottom with enough left over to start up both sides.
2. Make sure the bake element is cool. Lift it far enough to raise Its feet
from the bottom of the oven. (You may have to remove an oven
rack I
3. Slide the foil sheet under the bake element Make sure it is centered
and long enough to start up the sides.
4. When you put the bake element back down. make sure all the feet
rest solidly on the foil and that the foil is smoothed out across the
bottom of the oven. If the feet on the element are not solidly on the
foil. the oven may not bake properly.
If results aren’t
what you expect:
Remember. the ovens keep themselves presentably clean at normal baking temperatures. If you do very little baking. but a lot of broiling,
you may see fat spatters on the oven walls and door. This is because
broiling will add new spatters faster than old ones can be burned off. In
some cases. you may want to clean the oven by hand.
Hand-cleaning
the Continuous
Cleaning
Ovens:
1. Wash with hot. soapy water and rinse well.
2. Use a soapy steel wool pad or plastic scouring pad for more stubborn
spots.
3. Do not use commercial
oven cleaners. These cleaners may collect
in the rough porcelain enamel finish. The fumes from commercial
oven cleaner trapped in the porcelain enamel surface may be
harmful.

Cleaning
under the cooktop:
To clean the area under the cooktop. lift the front of the cooktop at

in the notch in the cooktop.) Use warm soapy water and a sponge or cloth.
Scouring powders or- any other abrasive cleaner may harm porcelain
enamel finishes and can scratch chrome.
Be careful not to raise the cooktop so high that it touches the upper
oven. And don’t drop it. Dropping the cooktop can chip or crack a hard
porcelain finish. or damage srde panels and surface units.
Prop up the top with
