Warnings & Safety
To Prevent Fire or Smoke Damage
Cooking Safety
• Be sure all packing materials are removed from the appliance before
operating it.
• Keep area around appliance clear and free from combustible materials,
gasoline, and other flammable vapors and materials.
• If appliance is installed near a window, proper precautions should be taken
to prevent curtains from blowing over burners.
• NEVER leave any items on the rangetop. The hot air from the vent may ignite
flammable items and may increase pressure in closed containers which may
cause them to burst.
• Many aerosol-type spray cans are EXPLOSIVE when exposed to heat and
may be highly flammable. Avoid their use or storage near an appliance.
• Many plastics are vulnerable to heat. Keep plastics away from parts of the
appliance that may become warm or hot. DO NOT leave plastic items on
the rangetop as they may melt or soften if left too close to the vent or a
lighted surface burner.
• Combustible items (paper, plastic, etc.) may ignite and metallic items
may become hot and cause burns. DO NOT pour spirits over hot foods.
DO NOT leave oven unsupervised when drying herbs, breads,
mushrooms, etc; fire hazard.
• To eliminate the hazard of reaching over hot surface burners, cabinet
storage should not be provided directly above a unit. If storage is provided,
it should be limited to items which are used infrequently and which are
safely stored in an area subjected to heat from an appliance. Temperatures
may be unsafe for some items, such as volatile liquids, cleaners or
aerosol sprays.
• ALWAYS place a pan on a surface burner before turning it on. Be sure you
know which knob controls which surface burner. Make sure the correct
burner is turned on and that the burner has ignited. When cooking is
completed, turn burner off before removing pan to prevent exposure to
burner flame.
• ALWAYS adjust surface burner flame so that it does not extend beyond the
bottom edge of the pan. An excessive flame is hazardous, wastes energy
and may damage the appliance, pan or cabinets above the appliance. This is
based on safety considerations.
• NEVER leave a surface cooking operation unattended especially
when using a high heat setting or when deep fat frying. Boilovers cause
smoking and greasy spillovers may ignite. Clean up greasy spills as soon as
possible. DO NOT use high heat for extended cooking operations.
• NEVER heat an unopened container on the surface burner or in the oven.
Pressure build-up may cause container to burst resulting in serious personal
injury or damage to the appliance.
• Use dry, sturdy pot-holders. Damp pot-holders may cause burns from steam.
Dishtowels or other substitutes should NEVER be used as potholders
because they can trail across hot surface burners and ignite or get caught on
appliance parts.
• ALWAYS let quantities of hot fat used for deep fat frying cool before
attempting to move or handle.
• DO NOT let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate in or
near the appliance, hood or vent fan. Clean hood frequently to prevent
grease from accumulating on hood or filter. When flaming foods under the
hood, turn the fan off.
• NEVER wear garments made of flammable material or loose fitting or longsleeved apparel while cooking. Clothing may ignite or catch utensil handles.
• ALWAYS place oven racks in the desired positions while oven is cool. Slide
oven rack out to add or remove food, using dry, sturdy potholders. ALWAYS
avoid reaching into the oven to add or remove food. If a rack must be
moved while hot, use a dry potholder.
• ALWAYS turn the oven off at the end of cooking.
• Use care when opening the oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before
moving or replacing food.
In Case of Fire
Turn off appliance and ventilating hood to avoid spreading the flame.
Extinguish flame, then turn on hood to remove smoke and odor.
• Cooktop: Smother fire or flame in a pan with a lid or cookie sheet.
• NEVER pick up or move a flaming pan.
• Oven: Smother fire or flame by closing the oven door.
DO NOT use water on grease fires. Use baking soda, a dry chemical or
foam-type extinguisher to smother fire or flame.
Child Safety
• NEVER leave children alone or unsupervised near the appliance when it is in
use or is still hot.
• NEVER allow children to sit or stand on any part of the appliance as they
could be injured or burned.
• DO NOT store items of interest to children over the unit. Children climbing
to reach items could be seriously injured.
• Children must be taught that the appliance and utensils in it can be hot.

Warnings & Safety
Cooking Safety (cont.)
Utensil Safety (cont.)
• NEVER use aluminum foil to cover oven racks or oven bottom. This could
result in risk of electric shock, fire, or damage to the appliance. Use foil only
as directed in this guide.
• PREPARED FOOD WARNING: Follow food manufacturer’s instructions. If a
plastic frozen food container and/or its cover distorts, warps, or is otherwise
damaged during cooking, immediately discard the food and its container. The
food could be contaminated.
• If you are ”flaming” liquor or other spirits under an exhaust, TURN THE
FAN OFF. The draft could cause the flames to spread out of control.
• Once the unit has been installed as outlined in the Installation
Instructions, it is important that the fresh air supply is not obstructed.
The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat and
moisture in the room in which it is installed. 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).
• This appliance has been tested for safe performance using conventional
cookware. DO NOT use any devices or accessories that are not specifically
recommended in this guide. DO NOT use eyelid covers for the surface units,
stovetop grills, or add-on oven convection systems. The use of devices or
accessories that are not expressly recommended in this manual can create
serious safety hazards, result in performance problems, and reduce the life
of the components of the appliance.
• The flame of the burner should be adjusted to just cover the bottom
of the pan or pot. Excessive burner setting may cause scorching of
adjacent counter-top surfaces, as well as the outside of the utensil. This
is based on safety considerations.
Utensil Safety
• Use pans with flat bottoms and handles that are easily grasped and stay
cool. Avoid using unstable, warped, easily tipped or loose-handled pans.
Also avoid using pans, especially small pans, with heavy handles as they
could be unstable and easily tip. Pans that are heavy to move when filled
with food may also be hazardous.
• Be sure utensil is large enough to properly contain food and avoid boilovers.
Pan size is particularly important in deep fat frying. Be sure pan will
accommodate the volume of food that is to be added as well as the bubble
action of fat.
• To minimize burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage due to
unintentional contact with the utensil, DO NOT extend handles over
adjacent surface burners. ALWAYS turn pan handles toward the side or back
of the appliance, not out into the room where they are easily hit or reached
by small children.
• NEVER let a pan boil dry as this could damage the utensil and the
appliance.
• Follow the manufacturer’s directions when using oven cooking bags.
• Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic or glazed utensils are
suitable for rangetop surface or oven usage without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature. Follow manufacturer’s instructions when
using glass.
8
Heating Elements
• NEVER touch oven heating elements, areas near elements, or interior
surfaces of oven.
• Heating elements may be hot even though dark in color. Areas near elements
and interior surfaces of an oven may become hot enough to cause burns.
• During and after use, DO NOT touch or let clothing or other flammable
materials contact heating elements, areas near elements, or interior surfaces
of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool.
Cleaning Safety
• Turn off all controls and wait for appliance parts to cool before touching or
cleaning them. DO NOT touch the burner grates or surrounding areas until
they have had sufficient time to cool.
• Clean appliance with caution. Use care to avoid steam burns if a wet sponge
or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot surface. Some cleaners can produce
noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
Self-Clean Oven
• Clean only parts listed in this guide. DO NOT clean door gasket. The door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage,
or move the gasket. DO NOT use oven cleaners of any kind in or around any
part of the self-clean oven.
• Before self-cleaning the oven, remove broiler pan, oven racks and other
utensils and wipe up excessive spillovers to prevent excessive smoke,
flare-ups or flaming.
• This range features a cooling fan which operates automatically during a
clean cycle. If the fan does not turn on, cancel the clean operation and
contact an authorized servicer.
• It is normal for the rangetop cooking surface of the range to become hot
during a self-clean cycle. Therefore, touching the rangetop cooking surface
during a clean cycle should be avoided.

Warnings & Safety
Getting Started
WARNING
This range features a self-cleaning cycle. During this cycle, the oven
reaches elevated temperatures in order to burn off soil and deposits. A
powder ash residue is left in the bottom of the oven after completion of
the self-clean cycle.
Note: DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners inside the oven. Use of
these cleaners can produce hazardous fumes or can damage the
porcelain finishes. DO NOT line the oven with aluminum foil or other
materials. These items can melt or burn during a self-clean cycle,
causing permanent damage to the oven.
CAUTION
DO NOT touch the exterior portions of the oven after
self-cleaning cycle has begun, since some parts become
extremely hot to the touch!
During the first few times the self-cleaning feature is used, there may
be some odor and smoking from the ”curing” of the binder in the highdensity insulation used in the oven. When the insulation is thoroughly
cured, this odor will disappear. During subsequent self-cleaning
cycles, you may sense an odor characteristic of high temperatures.
KEEP THE KITCHEN WELL-VENTED DURING THE
SELF-CLEAN CYCLE.
CAUTION
You must carefully check the food during the dehydration process to
ensure that it does not catch fire.

Surface Cooking Tips
All burners are ignited by electric ignition using the exclusive
SureSpark™ Ignition system, offering consistent and reliable
ignition every time. There are no open-flame, ”standing” pilots.
• Use low or medium flame heights when cooking in vessels that are
poor conductors of heat, such as glass, ceramic, and cast-iron.
Reduce the flame height until it covers approximately 1/3 of the
cooking vessel diameter. This will ensure more even heating within
the cooking vessel and reduce the likelihood of burning or scorching
the food.
• Reduce the flame if it is extending beyond the bottom of the
cooking vessel. A flame that extends along the sides of the vessel is
potentially dangerous, heats the utensil handle and kitchen instead
of the food, and wastes energy.
• Reduce the flame height to the minimum level necessary to perform
the desired cooking process. Remember that food cooks just as
quickly at a gentle boil as it does at a rolling boil. Maintaining a
higher boil than is necessary wastes energy, cooks away moisture,
and causes a loss in food flavor and nutrient level.
• The minimum pot or pan (vessel) diameter recommended is
6” (15 cm). Use of pots or pans as small as 4” (10 cm) is possible
but not recommended.
Surface Burners/Automatic Re-Ignition
To light the surface burners, push and turn the appropriate control
knob counter clockwise to any position. This control is both a gas valve
and an electric switch. Burners will ignite at any ”ON” position with the
automatic re-ignition system. If the flame goes out for any reason, the
burners will automatically re-ignite if the gas is still flowing. When gas is
permitted to flow to the burners, the electric igniters start sparking. On all
surface igniters you should hear a ”clicking” sound. If you do not, turn off
the control and check that the unit is plugged in and that the fuse or
circuit breaker is not blown or tripped.
Within a few moments, enough gas will have traveled to the burner to
light. When the burner lights, turn the burner control to any position to
adjust the flame size. Setting the proper flame height for the desired
cooking process and selecting the correct cooking vessel will result in
superior cooking performance, while also saving time and energy.
Simmering is a cooking technique in which foods are cooked in hot
liquids kept at or just barely below the boiling point of water. Simmering
ensures gentler treatment than boiling to prevent food from toughening
and/or breaking up. The size of the pan and the volume of food can have
a significant effect on how high or low a flame is needed for simmering.
For this reason, Viking range and rangetop burners are engineered with a
VariSimmer setting. The VariSimmer setting is not just one simmer setting,
but provides a variable range of simmer settings. This variable range of
simmer settings allows you to adjust the flame height to achieve the best
simmer depending on the type and quantity of food being simmered. It
is this ability that makes the VariSimmer setting the most accurate and
trustworthy simmer on the market.

TruPower Plus™ Burner (where applicable)
Certain model ranges are equipped with a TruPower Plus 18,500 BTU
burner in the front right burner position. This burner is designed to
provide extra high heat output, especially when using large pans, and
should be used for boiling large quantities or if you need to bring
something to a boil quickly. While TruPower Plus burner has the extra
power needed to bring large quantities of liquid to a boil rapidly, it is also
able to be turned down low enough to provide a very low and delicate
simmer making this burner the most versatile on the market.

Cooking Vessels
Griddle/Simmer Plate Operation
Each cook has his or her own preference for the particular cooking
vessels that are most appropriate for the type of cooking
being done. Any and all cooking vessels are suitable for
use in the range and it is not necessary to
replace your present domestic vessels
with commercial cookware. This is a
matter of personal choice. As with any
cookware, yours should be in good
condition and free from excessive dents
on the bottom to provide maximum
performance and convenience.
• Turn the griddle control knob counterclockwise to the desired
temperature setting. The power “ON” indicator light will glow
indicating the griddle thermostat is on.
• The double griddle has two thermostat control knobs which control
separate burners located beneath the griddle.
• When the griddle has reached the
Griddle Assembly
desired temperature, the power
“ON” indicator light will turn off
Grease trough
indicating the griddle is preheated
to the selected temperature.
• Use liquid cooking oil or butter for
Griddle
eggs, pancakes, French toast, fish
and sandwiches to prevent sticking.
• Routinely scrape loose food
particles with a metal spatula
during cooking to make the
cleanup easier and to avoid the particles mixing with the food.
• To turn the griddle off, turn the thermostat knob clockwise to the
“OFF” position.
• ALWAYS turn to the“OFF” position when not in use and lower the
heat between cooking loads.
Note: When using big pots and/or high flames, it is recommended to
use the front burners. There is more room in the front and potential
cleanup at rear of appliance due to staining or discoloration will be
minimized.
The optional 15,000 BTU griddle is constructed of machined steel with a
blanchard finish and is uniquely designed to offer excellent cooking
performance as well as easy clean up. The griddle is equipped with an
electronic thermostat to maintain an even temperature across the
griddle once the desired temperature has been set. The griddle has a
power “ON” indicator light which glows when the griddle thermostat
has been turned on. This will cycle on and off as needed to indicate the
thermostat is maintaining the selected temperature. Before the griddle is
used it is important to season the griddle. This seasoning process will
change the appearance of the griddle plate. However, it will also prevent
food from sticking and protect the surface from moisture.
Seasoning the Griddle Before the First Use
• Scrub the griddle plate with a mixture of one quart warm water and
1/4 cup white vinegar, using a blue Scotch-Brite™ pad. Dry thoroughly.
• Wash griddle with warm, soapy water. Rinse off and dry thoroughly.
• Season griddle by thinly coating the surface with approximately 1⁄2 to
1 teaspoon unsalted vegetable oil. Apply to entire griddle using a
paper towel or clean cloth. Let oil sit on griddle for approximately 1
hour and then wipe with a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb any
residual oil. The griddle is now ready to be used.
20
Griddle/Simmer Plate Clean Up & Care
• It is not necessary to wash the griddle after every use. When light
cooking is performed and AFTER the griddle has cooled, simply
wipe down the surface with a clean cloth or paper towel. The oils in
the food which cooked on the griddle surface will naturally season
the griddle providing a “natural” non-stick surface.
• After heavy cooking is completed and the griddle is still warm
enough to create steam, pour a small amount of club soda at room
temperature directly on the griddle. Using a metal spatula, pull oils
and food particles toward the trough in front. Wipe entire surface
with a paper towel. Follow with the seasoning process of applying
oil.
• Keeping the griddle well seasoned will prevent the griddle from
developing surface rust. If the griddle is not used for a period of
time, it must be re-seasoned. The griddle must be re-seasoned each
time after it is washed.
• Non-stick cooking spray is not recommended as it contains a high
water content that has a tendency to burn quickly.
• Corn oil is not recommended as it has a high sugar level. It will
caramelize and burn on the surface making it very difficult to remove.

Griddle/Simmer Plate Clean Up & Care (cont.)
• After using the griddle, always remove the grease trough located in
the front. Simply pull the trough towards you and lift out. Be sure to
allow all surfaces to cool before removing the grease trough. The
trough or tray trap needs to be cleaned after each use. A fire hazard
may occur if grease is accumulated in the trough.
• Note - it is normal for the griddle to darken over time. This is the
sign of a well seasoned griddle.
• Important: Never flood a hot griddle with cold water. This thermal
shock promotes griddle warping and can cause the griddle to crack if
continued over a period of time.
• For heavy duty cleaning, Viking offers a Griddle Cleaning Kit (model
#GCK). This fast and effective commercial grade cleaning system will
clean your griddle in a matter of minutes. To order, contact your local
Viking dealer or order on the Viking website at vikingrange.com.

Char-Grill Operation
•
•
•
•
•
Turn the overhead ventilation on prior to turning the grill on.
Turn the grill knob counterclockwise to HI.
Always preheat grill for 5-10 minutes before placing food on the grate.
Place food items on the grill, cook as desired.
To turn the grill off, turn the grill knob clockwise to the OFF position.
Char-Grill Cooking Tips
• When grilling chicken, roasts, well-done steaks or chops and thick
pieces of meat, sear on HI. Then, reduce the heat setting to prevent
excessive flare-up. This will allow the food to cook through without
burning the outside.
• After steaks, chops, or hamburgers have been allowed to sear for
approximately one minute, you may slide a spatula under the meat
and turn it approximately 90 degrees so that a waffle pattern will be
seared onto the food.
• Use a metal spatula instead of tongs or a fork to turn the meat. A
spatula will not puncture the meat allowing juices to escape.
• Turn the meat over only once. Juices are lost when steaks, chops or
hamburgers are turned several times. The best time to turn the meat
is after the juices have begun to bubble to the surface.
• To test for doneness, make a small slash in the center of the meat,
not the edge. This will prevent loss of juices.
• Occasionally there may be flare-ups or flames above the grill due to
drops of fat falling on the flavor generator plates. It is normal to have
some flare-up during grilling. Use a long handled spatula to move
food to another area until the flames subside.
• For ease of cleaning, leave the char-grill on for 10 minutes when
finished grilling. This will help make cleanup easier once the char-grill
has cooled down.

Griddle Cooking Chart
The optional 18,000 BTU char-grill is equipped with a single piece,
heavy-duty porcelainized cast-iron grill grate for easy movement of
grilling items. Beneath the grill grate is a slotted porcelainized flavor
generator plate which is designed to catch drippings and circulate a
smoke flavor back into the food. Beneath the flavor generator plate is
a two piece drip pan which catches any drippings that might pass
beyond the flavor generator plate. This unique grilling system is
designed to provide outdoor quality grilling indoors.

Char-Grill Assembly
Char-Grill Clean Up & Care
Follow these steps to disassemble the char-grill for cleaning. Make sure
the char-grill is completely cool before attempting to disassemble for
cleaning.
• Remove the char-grill grate.
• Remove the flavor generator plate.
• Remove the drip pan. Note that the drip pan is a two piece drip pan.
• Located beneath the burner is the drip tray. Under normal grilling
circumstances, very little if any grease will accumulate in the drip tray.
If any grease has accumulated in the drip tray, simply wipe down with
a damp cloth or paper towel.
• Char-grill grates:
o May be cleaned immediately after cooking is complete and
before turning off the flame. Before cleaning the grill turn the
fame down to a lower setting such as Med or Low. Use a soft
bristle brush to scrub the grill grate. Dip the brush frequently
into a bowl of water. Steam is created as the water contacts
the hot grate. The steam assists the cleaning process by
softening the food particles.
o For a thorough cleaning of the grill grate, use grill cleaner
according to manufacturer’s directions and then soak 15-20
minutes in a hot water and mild detergent solution. After
soaking, scrub with a blue Scotch-Brite™ pad. Do not use a
steel wool pad or abrasive cleaner, for risk of damaging the
porcelain finish. Dry thoroughly.
• Flavor generator plates, drip pan and drip tray:
o Scrape off all burned on debris. The flavor-generator plates,
drip pan and drip tray are dishwasher safe. If you choose to
not wash these components in the dishwasher then simply
soak for 15-20 minutes in a hot water and mild detergent
solution. After soaking, scrub with a blue Scotch-Brite™ pad.

Preheat
Normal Operation
For best results, it is extremely important that you preheat your oven
to the desired cooking temperature before placing food items in the
oven to begin cooking. In many cooking modes, partial power from
the broiler is used to bring the oven to the preheat temperature.
Therefore, placing food items in the oven during preheat mode is not
recommended. The Viking Rapid Ready™ Preheat System is
engineered so that the oven is brought to the desired set temperature
in a manner which will provide the optimum cooking environment
based on the selected cooking mode in the shortest possible time.
Once the FUNCTION and TEMPERATURE are set, and PREHEAT
completes, oven will beep indicating set temperature has been
reached and normal operation begins.
1. The display shows set temperature.
For instance, the preheat mode for TruConvec™ is designed to be
brought up to the set point temperature in a different manner than the
preheat mode for CONVENTIONAL BAKE. This is because
TRUCONVEC is designed for multi-rack baking. So it is extremely
critical that all rack positions have reached the desired cooking
temperature. As a result, it is normal for oven to take slightly longer for
the oven to preheat to 350°F (180ºC) in TRUCONVEC mode when
compared to the amount of time it takes to preheat to 350°F (180ºC)
in CONVENTIONAL BAKE mode.
Note: While preheating, display will alternate between PREHEAT and
FUNCTION and TEMPERATURE selected.
Note: PREHEAT is the only cycle where actual temperature is
displayed, otherwise the display shows set temperature.
Note: Certain functions include a PREHEAT cycle. Once set
temperature has been reached, the oven will automatically exit
PREHEAT and follow NORMAL OPERATION mode.
3. If oven is no longer at correct temperature due to opening oven
door, control will revert to PREHEAT.

Conventional and Convection Cooking
Conventional and Convection Cooking (cont.)
Because of variations in food density, surface texture and consistency,
some foods may be prepared more successfully using the conventional
bake setting. For this reason, conventional baking is recommended
when preparing baked goods such as custard. The user may find other
foods that are also prepared more consistently in conventional bake.
This is perfectly normal. Convection cooking is a cooking technique
which utilizes fan-forced air to circulate heat throughout the entire
oven creating the optimum cooking environment. Cooking with
convection is intended when performing multi-rack baking and for
baking heavier foods. Below are tips which will allow you to get the
best results out of your oven when cooking with convection.
• 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 this 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.
• When using large (15” x 13”) flat pans or trays that cover most of
the rack, rack positions 2 or 3 produce the best results.
• When baking on more than one rack, it is recommended to use one
of the convection modes and the 2nd and 4th position or the 3rd
and 5th position for more even baking. When baking on three racks,
use any combination of positions 2, 3, 4, and 5 for more consistent
results.
• Stagger pans in opposite directions when two racks and several pans
are used in conventional bake. If possible, no pan should be directly
above another.
• Allow 1 to 2 inches of air space around all sides of each pan for even
air circulation.

Pan Placement Tips
• As a general rule, to convert conventional recipes to convection
recipes, reduce the temperature by 25°F (-3.9°C) and the cooking
time by approximately 10 to 15%.
• Cooking times for standard baking and convection baking will be the
same. However, if using convection to cook a single item or smaller
load, then it is possible to have 10-15% reduction in cooking time.
(Remember convection cooking is designed for multi-rack baking or
cooking large loads.)
• If cooking items which require longer than 45 minutes, then it is
possible to see a 10-15% reduction in cooking time. This is
especially true for large items cooked in the convection roast
function.
• A major benefit of convection cooking is the ability to prepare foods
in quantity. The uniform air circulation makes this possible. Foods
that can be prepared on two of three racks at the same time include:
pizza, cakes, cookies, biscuits, muffins, rolls, and frozen convenience
foods.
• For three-rack baking, use any combination of rack positions 2, 3, 4,
and 5. For two-rack baking, use rack positions 2 and 4 or positions 3
and 5. Remember that the racks are numbered from bottom to top.
See ”Oven Features” illustration on page 19.
• Items cooked in a convection function can be easily over-baked. This
being the case, it is usually a good idea to pull items out of the oven
just before they seem to be done. Items will continue to cook right
after they are set out of the oven.

BAKE (Two-Element Bake)
Full power heat is radiated from
the bake element in the bottom
of the oven cavity and
supplemental heat is radiated
from the broil element. This
function is recommended for
single rack baking. Many
cookbooks contain recipes to
be cooked in the conventional
two-element bake
manner. Conventional baking/
roasting is particularly suitable for dishes that require a high
temperature. Use this setting for baking, roasting, and casseroles.
The bottom element operates
at full power, and the top broil
element operates at
supplemental power. The
heated air is circulated by the
motorized fan in the rear of the
oven providing a more even
heat distribution. This even
convection bake
circulation of air equalizes the
temperature throughout the oven cavity and eliminates the hot and
cold spots found in conventional ovens. A major benefit of convection
baking is the ability to prepare food in quantity using multiple racks—
a feature not possible in a standard oven.
When roasting using this setting, cool air is quickly replaced, searing
meats on the outside and retaining more juices and natural flavor on
the inside with less shrinkage. 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. Use this
setting for baking and roasting.
42
The rear element only operates
at full power. There is no direct
heat from the bottom or top
elements. The motorized fan in
the rear of the oven circulates
air in the oven cavity for even
heating. Use this setting for
foods that require gentle
cooking such as pastries,
TruConvec™
souffles, yeast breads, quick
breads and cakes. Breads, cookies, and other baked goods come out
evenly textured with golden crusts. No special bakeware is required.
Use this function for single rack baking, multiple rack baking, roasting,
and preparation of complete meals. This setting is also recommended
when baking large quantities of baked goods at one time.
Baking Tips
• Make sure the oven racks are in the desired positions before you
turn the oven on.
• 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 the pan size and type recommended by the recipe to ensure
best results. Cakes, quick breads, muffins, and cookies should be
baked in shiny, reflective pans for light, golden crusts. Avoid the use
of old, darkened pans. Warped, dented, stainless steel and tincoated pans heat unevenly and will not give uniform baking results.
Proofing
This setting is designed for allowing yeast dough to rise to a
temperature between 85°F (29°C) and 100°F ( 38°C). Yeast doughs rise
or ”proof” best when the temperature is between 85°F (29°C) and
100°F (38°C). To make sure the dough is warm enough, cover the bowl
loosely with plastic wrap and/or cloth towel. Place the bowl on the
center rack of the oven and close door. When you think the dough has
doubled in size, lightly poke 2 fingers about 1/2” (1.3 cm) into the
dough. If the indentation remains, the dough has risen enough.

Solving Baking Problems
Cooking Substitutes Charts
Baking problems can occur for many reasons. Check the chart below
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.
In many cases, a recipe requires an ingredient which is not readily
available or calls for a unit of measure that is not easily recognized.
The following charts have been provided as useful guides in these
situations.

CONV ROAST*
(Convection Roast)
The convection element runs in
conjunction with the inner and
outer broil elements. The
reversible convection fan runs
at a higher speed in each
direction. This transfer of heat
(mainly from the convection
element) seals moisture inside
convection roast
of large roasts. A time savings is
gained over existing, single fan convection roast modes. Use this
setting for whole turkeys, whole chickens, hams, etc.
*Note: This function uses a high-speed convection fan for optimum
cooking performance. Some noise may be noticed from this high fan
speed. This is normal.
Note: You can also roast foods using bake settings. See the ”Baking”
section for additional information.
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.
AUTO ROAST
Use this function to simplify roasting by automatically searing the
outside of roasts.
1. See page 24 for instructions on accessing the Auto Roast function.
When Set Auto Roast Temperature is reached, one long beep will sound
and the display will show “SEARING.” The oven will remain at searing
temperature (set temperature plus 100º F) for 30 minutes. If set, Cook Time
timer will begin.
• As a general rule, to convert conventional recipes to convection
recipes, reduce the temperature by 25°F (-3.9°C) and the cooking
time by approximately 10 to 15%.
• ALWAYS roast meats fat side up in a shallow pan using a roasting
rack. 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 a rack in a shallow 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 the conventional
bake setting rather than either convection setting.

Roasting Tips
Roasting Tips (cont.)
• 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
temperature halfway through the recommended roasting time. After
reading the thermometer once, insert it 1⁄2 inch (1.3 cm) further into
the meat, then take a second reading. If the second temperature
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 5°F (-15°C) to 10˚ F (-12°C) 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.

Broiling
CONV BROIL*
(Convection Broil)
The top element operates
at full power. This function is
exactly the same as regular
broiling with the additional
benefit of air circulation by
the motorized fan in the rear
of the oven. Smoke is reduced
since the airflow also reduces
convection broil
peak temperatures on the
food. Use this setting for broiling thick cuts of meats.
*Note: This function uses a high-speed convection fan for optimum
cooking performance. Some noise may be noticed from this high fan
speed. This is normal.
Heat radiates from both broil
elements, located in the top of
the oven cavity, at full power.
The distance between the
foods and the broil elements
determines broiling speed. For
fast broiling, food may be as
close as 2 inches (5 cm) to the
broil element or on the top
high broil
rack. Fast broiling is best for
meats where rare to medium doneness is desired. Use this setting for
broiling small and average cuts of meat.
MED BROIL
Inner and outer broil elements
pulse on and off to produce less
heat for slow broiling. Allow
about 4 inches (10 cm) between
the top surface of the food and
the broil element. Slow broiling
is best for chicken and ham in
order to broil food without overbrowning it. Use this setting for
broiling small and average cuts
of meat.
medium broil
52
This mode uses only a fraction
of the available power to the
inner broil element for delicate
top-browning. The inner broil
element is on for only part of
the time. Use this setting to
gently brown meringue on racks
3 or 4 in 3-4 minutes.

Broiling Instructions
Broiling is a dry-heat cooking method using direct or radiant heat.
It is used for small, individualized cuts such as steaks, chops, and
patties. Broiling speed is determined by the distance between the
food and the broil element. Choose the rack position based on desired
results.
Conventional broiling (LOW, MED or HI BROIL) is most successful for
cuts of meat 1-2 inches thick and is also more suitable for flat pieces of
meat. Convection broiling has the advantage of broiling food slightly
quicker than conventional. Convection broiling of meats produces
better results, especially for thick cuts. The meat sears on the outside
and retains more juices and natural flavor inside with less shrinkage.
To Use Broil or Convection Broil
1. Arrange the oven rack in the desired position before turning
broiler on.
2. Center the food on cold broiler pan and grid supplied with your
oven. Place broiler pan in oven.
3. Set the oven function to desired broiling function. Temperature is
pre-set to 550ºF (290ºC), 450ºF (230ºC), and 350ºF (180ºC).
4. Close the door. There is not a detent to hold the door in the open
broil stop position. With open door broiling, the broil element does
not cycle on and off. With closed door broiling, the broil element
might cycle on and off if an extended broiling time is required. A
built-in smoke ”eliminator” in the top of the oven helps reduce
smoke and odors.

Broiling Tips
Broiling Chart
• 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 splatter, smoke, and fire.
• 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 tray.
• 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 the possibility of grease fire.
Note: Position 6 is the closest to the broiler and position 1 is the
closest to the oven bottom.

Wipe up spill-overs as soon as possible after they occur and before
they get a chance to burn in and cook solid. In the event of a
spill-over, follow these steps:
• Allow the burner and grate to cool to a safe temperature level.
• Lift off the burner grate. Wash in warm soapy water.
• Remove the burner cap and burner head and clean.
Burner Base
The base should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water at the end of
each cooling period. DO NOT use steel wool, abrasive cloths, cleanser,
or powders. To remove encrusted materials, soak the area with a hot
towel to loosen the material, then use a wooden nylon spatula.
DO NOT use a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape
the aluminum base.
• Wipe up any spills which remain on the sealed top surface.
• Replace burner cap, burner head, and grates after drying thoroughly.
Control Panel
DO NOT use any cleaners containing ammonia or abrasives. They
could remove the graphics from the control panel. Use hot, soapy
water and a soft clean cloth.
Oven Surfaces
The surface burner caps should be routinely removed and cleaned.
ALWAYS clean the burner caps after a spill-over. Keeping the burner
caps clean will prevent improper ignition and uneven flames. To clean,
pull burner cap straight up from the burner base. Wipe off surface
burner caps with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth after each use.
Use a non-abrasive cleanser such as Bon Ami™ and a soft brush or soft
Scotch Brite™ pad for cooked-on foods. Dry thoroughly after cleaning.
For best cleaning and to avoid possible rusting, DO NOT clean in
dishwasher or self-cleaning oven.

every day household cleaners that are not abrasive.
POWER FAILURE WARNING
Due to safety considerations and the possibility of personal injury in
attempting to light and extinguish the burner, the grill should, not under
any circumstances, be used during a power failure. The grill burner
control should always remain in the ”OFF” position during a power failure.
Momentary power failure can occur unnoticed. The range is affected only
when the power is interrupted. When it comes back on, the range will
function properly without any adjustments. A ”brown-out” may or may
not affect range operation, depending on how severe the power loss is.
If the range is in the self-clean cycle when the power failure occurs, wait
until power is restored and allow door to unlock automatically. Turn all
controls ”OFF” and restart self-clean cycle again, according to
instructions.
Broiler Pan and Grid

Self-Clean Cycle
Self-Clean Cycle
This oven features an automatic pyrolytic self-cleaning cycle. During
this cycle, the oven reaches elevated temperatures in order to burn-off
soil and deposits. An integral smoke eliminator helps reduce odors
associated with the soil burn-off. A powder ash residue is left in the
bottom of the oven after completion of the self-clean cycle. The door
latch is automatically activated after selecting the self-clean setting.
The latch ensures that the door cannot be opened while the oven
interior is at clean temperatures.
If Self-Clean is selected:
Note: A fan noise will be heard during the self-clean cycle and will
continue to run for the 3-1/2 hour duration of the self-clean cycle.
1. The control initiates the door lock. During this period, the display
shows “LOCKING”.
2. Once the door is locked, the control displays SELF CLEAN and the
time remaining on the display.
Before starting the Self-Clean cycle:
1. Remove the oven racks, and any other items/utensils from the oven.
The high heat generated during the cleaning cycle can discolor,
warp, and damage these items. DO NOT use foil or liners in the
oven. During the self-clean cycle, foil can burn or melt and damage
the oven surface.
2. Wipe off any large spills from the oven bottom and sides. NEVER
use oven cleaners inside a self-cleaning oven or on raised portions
of the door.
3. The control continues in SELF CLEAN mode for the required
SELF CLEAN duration.
4. Once the SELF CLEAN cycle is complete, the control displays
”COOLDOWN”. The door remains locked.
5. When 500ºF is reached, the control unlocks the door and
“COOLDOWN” is no longer displayed.
3. Some areas of the oven must be cleaned by hand before the cycle
begins. Soils in these areas will be baked on and very difficult to
clean if not removed first. Clean the door up to the gasket, the
door frame, and up to 2 inches inside the frame with detergent and
hot water. Rinse thoroughly and dry.
WARNING
BURN OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Make sure all controls are ”OFF” and oven is COOL before cleaning.
Failure to do so can result in burns or electrical shock.
DO NOT touch the exterior portions of the oven after self-cleaning
cycle has begun, since some parts become extremely hot to the touch!
During the first few times the self-cleaning feature is used, there may
be some odor and smoking from the curing of the binder in the highdensity insulation used in the oven. When the insulation is thoroughly
cured, this odor will disappear. During subsequent self-cleaning
cycles, you may sense an odor characteristic of high temperatures.
Keep the kitchen well-vented during the self-cleaning cycle.
