To obtain the best cooking results possible, you must operate your oven properly. This section gives
you important information for efficient and safe use of your oven.
Positioning
racks
and pans
For baking/roasting with one rack, the rack
should be placed so the top of the food will be
centered in the oven. Always leave at least 1 'k to
2 inches (4-5 cm) between the sides of the pan
and the oven walls and other pans.
For proper cooklng,
for speclf k foods:
follow these guldellnss
Angel and bundt cakes, yeast breads, frozen
pies, large roasts and turkeys-plaoe rack on
lowest level.
l Casseroles. muffins, most quick breads and
meats-place rack on second or third level from
bottom.
l Cookies, biscuits, cakes and non-frozen piesplace rack on second or third level from bottom.
When baking on two racks, arrange racks on
bottom and third level from bottom.
l
NOlE: For recommended rack placement when
broiling, see a reliable cookbook.
Psrsonsl ItlJllq liazsrd
Always position oven rack(s) in desired
bcatiin before turning oven on. Be sure
the rack(s) is level.
l If rack(s) must be moved while oven is
hot, use potholders or oven mitts to
protect hands.
Failure to follow the above precautions may
resutl in personal injury.
l
For best air circulation
The hot air must circulate around the pans in the
oven for even heat to reach all parts of the oven.
l Place the pans so that one is not directly over
the other.
l Allow 1‘k to 2 inches (4-5 cm) of space around
each pan and between pans and oven wails.
l Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at one
time.
Use the following as a guide to determine where
to place the pans.
One pan
Place in the center of the oven rack.
Two pans
Place in opposite comers of the oven rack.
Three or four pans
Place in opposite comers on each oven rack.
Stagger pans so no pan ‘is directly over another.
NOTE: “Oven peeking’ may cause heat loss,
longer cooking times and unsatisfactory baking or
toasting results. Use a reliable kitchen timer to
keep track of the cooking time.
Using
aluminum
foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spiilovers from pies or
casseroles.
l Place the foil on the oven rack below the rack
with the food. The foil shoub have the edges
turned up and be about 1 inch (3 cm) larger ail
around than the dish holding the food.
l Do not cover the entire rack with aluminum foil.
It will reduce air circulation and cause poor
cooking resutts.
l Do not line oven bottom or entire oven rack with
foil or other liners. Poor baking will result
ElectrIcal Shock and Fire Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements because it will damage them and
could result in shock or fire hazard.

at front and pull out. For information on
positioning racks, see “Positioning racks and
pans” on page 6.
2. Set the Oven Selector to BAKE.

Adjusting
the oven temperature
Does your oven seem hotter or colder than your
old oven? The temperature of your old oven may
have shifted gradually without you noticing the
change. Your new oven is properly adjusted to
provide accurate temperatures. But, when
compared to your old oven, the new design may
give you different results.
ff, after using the oven for a period of time, you
are not satisfied with the temperature settings,
they can be adjusted by following these steps:
1. Turn the Oven Temperature Control Knob to
the off position. Pull knob straight off and flip it
over.
2. loosen the locking screws inside the control
knob. Note the posHIon of the notcherr
3. To lower the temperature, hold knob handle
firmly and move the tooth a notch counterclockwise. Each notch equals about
5°F (2.5%).
4. To raise the temperature, hold knob handle
firmly and move the tooth a notch clockwise.
Each notch equals about 5°F (2.5%).
Tlghtsn the locking screws and replace the
control knob.

Broiling
1. Position the rack properly before turning on
the oven. The oven rack should be positioned
so that the surface of the food is at least 3 inches (7.4 cm) away from the broil element.
See ‘Positioning racks and pans’ on page 6.
2. Put the broiler pan and food on the rack.
3. Models RBl OOHY, FIB1OOPXYand
FIB1SOPXY: Rotate the Broil Stop clips over
the door hinge slots as shown at right.
4. Close the door to the Broil Stop position (open
about 4 inches [lo.2 cm]). The door will stay
open by itself.
5.
6.
7. Open the door and rotate the Broil Stop clips
to uncover the door hinge slots. Close the
door.
Custom
broil
If food is cooking too fast, turn the Oven
Temperature Control oounterclockwlss until
the OVEN ON Indicator Light goes off.
l ff you want the focd to broil slower from the
start, set the Oven Temperature Control
between 170°F and 325OF (77% and 162.7%).
These temperature settings allow the broil
heating element to cycle and to slow cooking.
The lower the temperature, the slower the
cooking.
l Fish and chicken are some foods that may cook
better if you use lower broiling temperatures.
The Oven Selector must ba on BROIL for all
brolllng temperatures.
l
NOTE: The oven door must be partly open
whenever the oven is being used to broil. Leaving
the door open allows the oven to maintain proper
temperatures.
11
Broiling
l
l
l
tips
Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling. They
are designed to drain excess liquid and fat
away from the cooking surface to help prevent
spatter, smoke or fire.
Refer to a broiling chart in a reliable cookbook
for coned broiling times.
After broiling, remove the broiler pan from the
oven when you remove the food. Drippings will
bake on the pan if 1 is left in the heated oven.
En@rQV saving
l
l
Fke Hazard
Place meat the arrrect distance from the
element. Meat placed too close to the
element may spatter, smoke, burn or
catch fire during broiling.
To ensure adequate grease drainage, do
not use cookie sheets or similar pans for
broiling. Also, covering the broiler grid
with foil is not recommended. Poor
drainage of grease may result in fire. If foil
is used, cut slits in foil to correspond with
ail openings in broiler grid. Grease can
then drain away and cool in pan.
tips
Although the energy used for cooking is usually a
very small percentage of the total energy used in
the home, cooking energy can be used efficiently.
Here are some tips to help you conserve energy
when using your cooking product.
. Preheat pans only when recommended and for
the shortest time possible.
. “Oven peeking’ may cause heat loss, longer
cooking times and unsatisfactory baking
results. Rely on your timer.
12
I
l
l
l
l
Bake cakes, pies or cookies when oven is
warm. Best time is after a meal has been
cooked in it.
Preheat the oven no bnger than necessary.
Plan your meals for the most efficient use of
the oven. When using the oven to cook one
food, try to cook the rest of the meal in it also.
Do not preheat when broiling, roasting or
cooking items such as casseroles.
Using
the automatic
MEALTIMER”
clock
The automatic MEALTIMER clock is designed to
turn the oven on and off at times you set ... even
when you are not around.
Automatic baking/roasting is ideal for foods
which do not require a preheated oven, such as
meats and casseroles. Do not use the automatlc cycle for cakes, cookies, etc. ...
undercooklng will result
To delay start
automatically:
and stop
1. Position the oven rack(s) properly and place
the food in the oven.
2. Make sure the clock Is set to the correct
time of day. (See “Setting the clock’on
page 8.1
3. Push in and turn the Start Time Knob clockwise to the time you want baking/roasting to
Start.
4. Push in and turn the Stop Time Knob clockwlee to the time you want the oven to shut off.
5. Set the Oven Selector to TIME BAKE.
6. Set the Oven Temperature Control to the
baking/roasting temperature you want. The
oven will now start and stop automatically.
The OVEN ON Indicator Light will come on
when the start time is reached.
7. After baklng/roastlng Is done or to cancel
the setting at any tlrne, turn both the Oven
Selector and Oven Temperature Control to
OFF.

To avold sickness and food waste when
uslng the MEALllMEff
control:
l Do not let most UNFROZEN food stand
for more than two hours before cooking
starts.
l Do not allow food to remain in oven for
more than two hours after the end of
cooking cycle.
NOTE: Do not use foods that will spoil while
wafting for cooking to start. Such foods are:
dishes with milk or eggs, cream soups, and
cooked meats or fish. Also, foods containing
baking powder or yeast will not rise properly
when cooked using delay start.
The oven vent
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven
through a vent on the top of the control panel.
The vent is needed for air circulation. Do not
block the vent. Poor baking/roasting can resuft.

Cleaning
tips
1. The oven window and racks are not coated.
Clean them by hand.
2. The oven door does not get as hot as the
walls. Some handcleaning may be needed.
