THE OVEN SELECTOR
With the Oven Selector on

heats. (Broiling, pg. 7 ).
With the Oven Selector on
BAKE, the bottom element
does most of the work. The
top element heats, but does
not turn red. [Baking, pg. 6).
With the Oven Selector on
TIMED BAKE, the MEALTIMER
Clock can be used to turn the
oven on and off automatically. (MEALTIMER Clock, pg.8).
THE OVEN TEMPERATURE CONTROL
Use the Oven Temperature
Control to set baking or roasting temperature
when the
Oven Selector is on BAKE or
TIMED BAKE.
When both the Oven Selector and Temperature
Control
are on BROIL, the broil element heats all the time. The
Oven Temperature
Control
can be set on a temperature
for slower broiling (see Broiling, page 7).

THE CONTINUOUS-CLEANING
OVEN
Standard oven walls are coated with smooth porcelain-enamel.
Your
continuous-cleaning
oven walls are coated with a special, rougher
porcelain-enamel.
A fat spatter beads up on the smooth surface, but spreads out on the rougher
surface. The bead of fat chars and turns black. The spread-out
fat gradually
burns away at medium to high baking temperatures
(350--475”F, 176’-231C) so
the oven can return to a presentably
clean condition.

If nothing operates:
l
Is the range plugged
into an operating
outlet or wired into a live circuit with the
proper voltage?
(See Installation
Instructions.)
l
Have you checked
the main fuse or circuitbreaker box?
If the oven will not operate:
Is the Oven Selector turned to a setting
(BAKE or BROIL, but not TIMED BAKE)’
l

If surface units will not operate:
Have you checked
the main fuse or circuitbreaker box?
l
Are surface units plugged
in all the way?
l
Do the control knobs turn?
l
If surface unit control knob or knobs will not
turn:
l
Did you push in before trying to turn?
If soil is visible on continuous-cleaning
oven flnish;
l
The special finish is designed
to gradually
reduce oven soil during normal baking
or roasting. It is not designed
to keep your

. If you broil often, you may see oven soil.
. The door is cooler than oven walls. Soil will
be more visible on the door than other
areas in the oven. See page 13, “Hand
Cleaning.”
If cooking results aren’t what you expect:
Is the range level?
Are you using pans recommended
in the
Cooking Guide?
If baking, have you allowed 1% to 2 inches
(4-5 cm] on all sides of the pans for air
circulation?
Does the oven temperature
seem too low or
too high? See page 6, “Resetting the oven
temperature
control.”
Have you preheated
the oven as the recipe calls for?
Are the pans the size called for in
the recipe?
Are you following a tested recipe from a
reliable source?
Do the cooking utensils have smooth, flat
bottoms?
Do the cooking utensils fit the surface unit
being used?
See the Cooking Guide for more information
on cooking problems and how to solve them.
