shut-off valve on the range so you know where and how to turn off
the gas if necessary.
2. Do not attempt to repair or replace an part of this appliance unless
specifically recommended in this manual. All servicing should be
referred to a qualified technician. A qualified technician is
required for any adjustments or conversions to Nat. or LP gas.
3. The “push-to-turn” knob of this oven are designed to be childsafe. However, children should not be left alone in the kitchen
while the range is in use. Do not store items of interest to children
over the unit. CAUTION: Children climbing to reach items could
be seriously injured.
4. GREASE is flammable and should be handled carefully. Do not
use water on grease fires. Never pick up a flaming pan. Smother
flaming pan by covering utensil completely with well-fitting lid,
cookie sheet or flat tray. Flaming grease outside of utensil can be
extinguished with baking soda or, if available, a multipurpose dry
chemical or foam type extinguisher.
5. Wear proper apparel. Loose-fitting or hanging garments should
never be worn while using the appliance.
6. Never use your oven for warming or heating a room. This is based
on safety considerations.
7. Use dry pot holders. Moist or damp pot holders on hot surfaces
may result in burns from steam. Do not use a towel or other bulky
cloth.
8. The vent ducts must also remain clear and unobstructed
9. Do not line the oven with aluminum foil.
10. Do not drape towels or any materials on oven door handles.
These items could ignite and you could get burned.
11. Use care when opening oven door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing food.
4
12. A risk of tip-over may result if the appliance is not installed in
accordance with installation instructions including excessive
loading of the oven door or from abnormal usage.
13. Keep area clean and free from combustible material, gasoline, and
other flammable liquids.
14. Do not attempt to operate the appliance during power failure.
15. Do not heat unopened food containers; buildup of pressure may
cause the container to explode and result in injury.
16. Never sit, step, stand, or lean on any part of the oven, or injury
may result.
17. Storage cabinet area above the unit must be 36” (91.4 cm) and
cannot project more than 13” (33.0 cm) outward from the rear wall.
Beware of potential hazards associated with retrieving items from
such cabinets when the unit is in operation.
18. Once the unit is installed as outlined in the Installation Instructions,
it is important that the fresh air supply is not obstructed. Ensure
that the kitchen is well-ventilated. Keep natural venting holes
open or install a mechanical ventilation device. Prolonged or
intensive use of the appliance may call for additional (such as
opening a window) or more effective ventilation (such as increasing
the level of a mechanical ventilation if present).
Before You Use Your Oven

Basic Functions of Your Oven
NATURAL AIRFLOW BAKE
Heat is radiated from the two bake
burners in the bottom of the oven
cavity and is circulated with natural
airflow. This is your traditional
bake setting.
1500oF (815.5oC) INFRARED BROIL
The broil burner at the top of the
oven heats the metal screen until it
glows. The glowing screen
produces the infrared heat, searing
the outside of broiled foods and
sealing in juices.
CONVECTION BAKE
Heat is radiated from the bake
burners in the bottom of the oven
cavity and is circulated by the
motorized fan in the rear of the
oven. It provides more even heat
distribution throughout the oven
cavity for all uses. Multiple rack
use is possible for the largest
baking job. When roasting, cool air
is quickly replaced - searing meats
on the outside and retaining more
juices and natural flavor on the
inside with less shrinkage.
11
Kitchen Equivalents and Metrics
INFRARED CONVECTION BROIL
Exactly the same as regular broiling
with the additional benefit of air
circulation by the motorized fan in
the rear of the oven. The cool air is
quickly replaced-improving the
already high performance of the
infrared broil burner.
CONVECTION DEFROST
With temperature control off, air is
circulated by a motorized fan in the
rear of the oven. The fan
accelerates natural defrosting of the
food without heat. To avoid
sickness and food waste, do not
allow defrosted food to remain in
the oven for more than two hours.

Using Your Oven
Natural Airflow Baking/ Convection Baking
Preheating
Preheating the oven is not necessary when using temperatures below
2500F. When baking items which require temperatures above 2500F, it
is extremely important that you preheat the oven. When the desired
temperature has been reached, a tone will sound indicating the oven
has preheated.

13
Natural Airflow Baking
This conventional baking/roasting is particularly suitable for dishes
which require a high temperature. Many cookbooks contain recipes to
be cooked in the conventional manner. This type of baking is only
recommended for single-rack baking.
Convection Baking
For convection baking, the oven function selector must be turned to
“CONVECTION BAKE”.
Convection baking is the process of cooking food with a flow of heated
air circulating throughout the oven cavity. The even circulating of this
air equalizes the temperature throughout the oven cavity and
eliminates the hot and cold spots found in conventional ovens. This
feature can make a significant difference in foods prepared in the oven.
A major benefit of convection baking is the ability to prepare food in
quantity. The uniform air circulation makes this possible . . . a feature
not possible in a standard oven. With this heating system, the air is
distributed evenly throughout the oven by the hot air fan. The heat
therefore reaches the food to be baked or roasted more quickly. With
this heating method, foods can be baked and roasted at the same time
with minimal taste transfer, even when different dishes are involved,
such as cakes, fish, or meat. The hot air system is especially
economical when thawing frozen food.
Rack Positions
Each convection oven is equipped with three tilt-proof racks. This oven
has four rack positions. Position 4 is the farthest from the oven
bottom. Position 1 is the closest to the oven bottom. The racks can
be easily removed and arranged at various levels. For best results with
conventional baking, do not use more than one rack at a time. It is
also recommended when using two racks, to bake with the racks on
position 4 and 2.
14
To Bake:
1. Arrange the oven racks in the desired position BEFORE heating the
oven. If cooking on two racks at the same time, use rack positions 2
and 4.
2. Turn the function selector to BAKE and set the desired temperature.
3. Place the food in the oven when a single tone sounds, indicating
the desired temperature has been reached.
Pan Placement Tips
•When using large (15” x 13” [38 cm x 33 cm]) flat pans or trays that
cover most of the rack, rack positions 2 or 3 produce the best results.
•Stagger pans in opposite directions when two racks and several pans
are used. No pan should be directly above another.
•Allow 1 1/2” to 2” (3.8 cm to 5.1 cm) of air space around all sides of
each pan for even air circulation.
•When baking on more
than one rack, it is
recommended to use the
2nd and 4th position for
more consistent even
baking.
15
Baking Tips
•As a general rule, to convert conventional recipes to convection
recipes, reduce the temperature by 250F and the cooking time by
approximately 10 to 15%.
•Some recipes, especially those that are homemade, may require
adjustment and testing when converting from standard to convection
modes. If unsure how to convert a recipe, begin by preparing the
recipe in conventional bake. After achieving acceptable results, follow
the convection guidelines listed for the similar food type. If the food
is not prepared to your satisfaction during the first convection trial,
adjust only one recipe variable at a time (cooking time, rack position,
or temperature) and repeat the convection test. Continue adjusting
one recipe variable at a time until satisfactory results are achieved.
•Make sure the oven racks are in the desired positions before you turn
the oven on.
•For best results, always preheat the oven.
•Do not open the oven door frequently during baking. If you must
open the door, the best time is during the last quarter of the baking
time.
•Bake to shortest time suggested and check for doneness before
adding more time. For baked goods, a stainless steel knife placed in
the center of the product should come clean when done.
•Use good quality baking pans and sizes recommended in the recipe;
warped, dented, or burned pans should not be used.
•Shiny metal pans are preferred for baking items such as cakes,
cookies, and muffins because they produce light, golden crusts due to
heat being reflected by the metal.
•Glass pans may also be used for cake baking. Reduce the oven
temperature by 25 degrees when using a glass pan, but bake for the
same amount of time called for in the recipe.
•Pies are best baked in pans which absorb and hold heat. Glass,
enamel, dull-finished metal, and porcelain enamel finish give pies a
golden brown crust.

Baking problems can occur for many reasons. Check the chart for the
causes and remedies for the most common problems. It is important
to remember that the temperature setting and cooking times you are
accustomed to using with your previous oven may vary slightly from
those required with this oven. If you find this to be true, it is necessary
for you to adjust your recipes and cooking times accordingly.

Conventional/Convection Roasting Tips
Conventional Roasting Chart
Always use the broiler pan and grid supplied with each oven. The hot
air must be allowed to circulate around the item being roasted. Do not
cover what is being roasted. Convection roasting seals in juices quickly
for a moist, tender product. Poultry will have a light, crispy skin, and
meats will be browned, not dry or burned. Cook meats and poultry
directly from the refrigerator. There is no need for meat or poultry to
stand at room temperature.
Type and
Cut of Meat
•Always roast meats fat side up. No basting is required when the fat
side is up. Do not add water to the pan, as this will cause a steamed
effect. Roasting is a dry-heat process.
•Poultry should be placed breast side up on the grid in the broiler pan.
Brush poultry with melted butter, margarine, or oil before and during
roasting.
•For convection roasting, do not use pans with tall sides, as this will
interfere with the circulation of heated air over the food.
•If using a cooking bag, foil tent, or other cover, use conventional
baking rather than convection.
•When using a meat thermometer, insert the probe halfway into the
center of the thickest portion of the meat. (For poultry, insert the
thermometer probe between the body and leg into the thickest part
of the inner thigh.) The tip of the probe should not touch bone, fat,
or gristle to ensure an accurate reading. Check the meat
thermometer 2/3 of the way through the recommended roasting time.
After reading the thermometer once, insert it 1/2” (1.3 cm) further into
the meat, then take a second reading. If the second reading registers
below the first, continue cooking the meat.
•Roasting times always vary according to the size, shape, and quality of
meats and poultry. Less tender cuts of meat are best prepared in the
conventional bake setting and may require moist cooking techniques.
Remove roasted meats from the oven when the thermometer registers
5OF to 10oF (-15oC to -12oC) lower than the desired doneness. The
meat will continue to cook after removal from the oven. Allow roasts
to stand 15 to 20 minutes after roasting in order to make carving
easier.

The broiler is an in-the-oven infrared broiler design-certified for
residential use. The method preferred by professional cooks to sear in
the nutrition, flavors, and juices of meat, poultry, and fish is now
possible in the home. The infrared broiler cooks up to 50% faster than
other methods. Its intense, penetrating heat produces a more
attractive, professional finish. The broil burner heats the metal screen
located at the top of the oven until it glows. The glowing screen
produces the infrared heat, searing the outside of broiled food and
sealing in the juices.
Broiling is a dry-heat cooking method using direct or indirect radiant
heat. It is used for small individualized cuts such as steaks, chops, and
patties. Broiling is most successful for cuts 1-2 inches (2.54-5.1 cm)
thick. Conventional broiling is also more suitable for flat pieces of
meat.
This broiler features a HI and LO broil function. The LO broil function
should be used for slow broiling since the unit will cycle on and off
frequently. The HI broil function should be used for fast broiling as the
unit will cycle less frequently
Infrared Convection Broiling
Convection broiling has the advantage of broiling food slightly quicker
than conventional. Convection broiling of meats produces better
results especially for extra thick cuts. The meat sears on the outside
and retains more juices and natural flavor inside with less shrinkage.
To use the Infrared Broiler:
1. Arrange the oven racks in the desired position.
2. Center food on cold broiler pan and grid supplied with your oven.
Place broiler pan in oven and close the door.
3. Set the oven function selector to either “BROIL” or “CONVECTION
BROIL.
4. Press the broil key. Press the up slew key for high broil or the down
slew key for low broil. HI or LO will appear depending on which
slew key is pressed.
23
Rack Positions:
The broiler uses infrared heat rays to help cook the food. Because
these rays can travel only in straight lines, the effective cooking area of
the broiler is reduced when using the higher rack positions. At high
rack positions, the rays cannot reach all corners of the broiler grid, so
larger pieces of meat might not broil sufficiently at the outer edges.
Position 4 is the closest to the broiler and position 1 is the closest to
the oven bottom.
The effective cooking areas on the broiler grid for each rack position
are as follows:
Broiling Tips
•Always use a broiler pan and grid for broiling. They are designed to
provide drainage of excess liquid and fat away from the cooking surface
to help prevent spatter, smoke and fire.
•Place broiler pan with food in recommended rack position.
•To keep meat from curling, slit fatty edge.
•Brush chicken and fish with butter several times as they broil to prevent
drying out. To prevent sticking, lightly grease broiler grid.
•Broil on first side for slightly more than half the recommended time,
season and turn. Season second side just before removing.
•Always pull rack out to stop position before turning or removing food.
•Use tongs or a spatula to turn meats. Never pierce meat with a fork as
this allows the juices to escape.
•Remove the broiler pan from the oven when you remove the food.
Drippings will bake onto the pan if it is left in the heated oven after
broiling. While pan is hot, place damp paper towel over grid. Drizzle
with liquid dishwashing detergent and pour water over grid. This will
make cleaning of the pan easier, or the broiler pan can be lined with
aluminum foil to make cleaning easier. Be sure the foil extends up the
side of the pan. Although it is not recommended, the grid can also be
covered with foil. Be sure to slit openings to conform with the
openings in the grid so melted fat can drain through to prevent
spattering, smoking or possibility of grease fire.

Convection Defrosting
•Place the frozen food on a baking sheet.
•Turn the oven function selector to “CONVECTION BAKE”.
•Do not set a bake temperature*.
*IMPORTANT:
Do not set the bake temperature. Turning the convection fan on will
accelerate the natural defrosting of the food without the heat.
*WARNING:
To avoid sickness and food waste, do not allow defrosted food to
remain in the oven for more than two hours.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Glass Surface
Clean with detergent and warm water. Glass cleaner can be used to
remove fingerprints. If using glass cleaner ammonia, make sure that it
does not run down on exterior door surface.
Brass Parts
CAUTION: All brass special ordered parts are coated with an epoxy
coating. DO NOT USE BRASS OR ABRASIVE CLEANERS ON THE
BRASS OPTION PARTS. All brass parts should be wiped regularly with
hot soapy water.
Broiler
There is no special care required for the infrared broiler. It is designed
as self-contained unit, and no adjustments or cleaning are possible. Do
not attempt to clean it. Its own operation burns off any impurities
which may condense on it.
Any piece of equipment works better and lasts longer when maintained
properly and kept clean. Cooking equipment is no exception. Your
oven must be kept clean and maintained properly.
Clean the broiler pan and grid after each use with detergent and hot
water. For stubborn spots, use a soap-filled steel wool pad. The
broiler pan and grid is also dishwasher safe.
Control Knob
MAKE SURE THE CONTROL KNOB POINTS TO THE OFF POSITION
BEFORE REMOVING. Pull the knob straight off. Wash in detergent
and warm water. Do not soak the knob. Dry completely and replace
by pushing firmly onto stem. DO NOT USE any cleaners containing
ammonia or abrasives. They could remove the graphics from the knob.
Oven Racks
Clean with detergent and hot water. Stubborn spots can be scoured
with a soap-filled steel wool pad.
Stainless Steel Parts
All stainless steel parts should be wiped regularly with hot, soapy water
at the end of each cooling period and with liquid stainless steel cleaner
when soapy water will not do the job. Do not use steel wool, abrasive
cloths, abrasive cleaners, or powders. If necessary to scrap stainless
steel to remove encrusted materials, soak the area with hot towels to
loosen the material, then use a wooden or nylon spatula or scraper.
Do not use a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape
stainless steel. For occasional heavy cleaning use, a cleaner such as
LIquid Zud can be used according to package directions. Do not
permit citrus or tomato juice to remain on stainless steel surface, as
citric acid will permanently discolor stainless steel. Wipe up any spills
immediately.

Replacing Interior Oven Lights
CAUTION: DISCONNECT THE ELECTRIC POWER AT THE MAIN FUSE
OR CIRCUIT BREAKER BEFORE REPLACING BULB.
1. Unscrew glass light cover.
2. Use an oven mitt during bulb
removal to protect your hand in
case the bulb breaks.
3. Replace the bulb with a 120 volt,
40-watt appliance bulb.
4. Replace the light cover
5. Reconnect power at the main fuse
or circuit breaker.
Power Failure
Since this oven uses electronic ignition, electrical power failure in the
home will affect the oven. During a power failure, electric igniters will
not work and the oven cannot be used. Momentary power failures can
occur unnoticed. The oven is affected only when the power is
interrupted. When power is restored, the oven will be fully useable. A
“brown-out” may or may not affect the oven’s operation, depending
upon the severity of the power loss. If power loss or brown-out is
suspected, do not use the oven until electrical service is restored.
