Warnings & Safety
Important Safety Notice and Warning
• Other potentially hot surfaces include oven vent, surfaces near the vent
opening, oven door, areas around the oven door, and oven window.
• The misuse of oven doors (e.g. stepping, sitting, or leaning on them) can
result in potential hazards and/or injuries.
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986
(Proposition 65) requires the Governor of California to publish a list of
substances known to the State of California to cause cancer or
reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential
exposures to such substances. Users of this appliance are hereby warned
that when the oven is engaged in the self-clean cycle, there may be some
low-level exposure to some of the listed substances, including carbon
monoxide. Exposure to these substances can be minimized by properly
venting the oven to the outdoors by opening the windows and/or door in
the room where the appliance is located during the self-clean cycle.
Important notice regarding pet birds:
NEVER keep pet birds in the kitchen or in rooms where the fumes from the
kitchen could reach. Birds have a very sensitive respiratory system. Fumes
released during an oven self-cleaning cycle may be harmful or fatal to
birds. Fumes released due to overheated cooking oil, fat, margarine and
overheated non-stick cookware may be equally harmful.

WARNING
BURN HAZARD
When self-cleaning, surfaces may get hotter than usual.
Therefore, children should be kept away.
WARNING
To avoid sickness and food waste when using automatic time baking:
• DO NOT use foods that will spoil while waiting for cooking to start, such
as dishes with milk or eggs, cream soups, custards, fish, pork, poultry,
or foods with stuffing.
• Any food that has to wait for cooking to start should be very cold or
frozen before it is placed in the oven.
• DO NOT use foods containing baking powder or yeast with automatic
time baking. They will not rise properly.
• DO NOT allow food to remain in the oven for more than 2 hours after
the end of the cooking cycle.
• To avoid sickness and food waste, DO NOT allow defrosted food to
remain in the oven for more than 2 hours.
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.
Warnings & Safety
CAUTION
BURN HAZARD
The oven door, especially the glass, can get hot. Danger of
burning: DO NOT touch the glass!
CAUTION

Using the Oven
Using the Oven
Preheat
Rack Positions
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 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.
Each oven is equipped with three heavy-duty racks, including two
TruGlide™ racks. With the TruGlide™ racks, the bottom section
remains in the oven and the top section smoothly glides outward when
pulled. This reduces the chances of spills from items that contain a lot
of juice or liquid. This rack can be used in any of the five rack
positions.
Meat Probe Function
Cable
The meat probe takes the guesswork
out of roasting by cooking foods to the
ideal internal temperature. The probe
temperature setting is used to notify
the user when the internal temperature
of the meat being roasted is reached.
To Set the Automatic Probe

Conventional and Convection Cooking
Conventional and Convection Cooking (cont.)
• 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.
• 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” section.
• 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.

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.

Using the Oven
Using the Oven
Condensation
Pan Placement Tips
The oven is supplied with a system which provides a natural circulation
of air. In most cases, this natural circulation will eliminate any observed
condensation. However, there will be instances where condensation is
observed. This is NOT a sign that the oven is not working properly.
• 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.
Condensation can occur depending on the following factors:
• Type of food being cooked
o Steam and condensation is a natural by product of cooking any
food with high water content, such as frozen food, chicken, etc.
o Use a covered container, where practical, when cooking to
reduce the amount of condensation that forms.
• Length of cooking time
o If the oven is going to be used for prolonged periods of time,
then additional ventilation may be required.
o Do not leave food in the oven to cool after it has been cooked
and the oven has been switched off.
o To reduce condensation, ensure the oven is well heated before
placing food in the oven cavity.

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 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 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.
28
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, 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 food 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.

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.

Note: You can also roast foods using bake settings. See the “Baking”
section for additional information.
Roasting Tips
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.
• 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.
33
Operation
Operation
Common Baking Problems/Remedies
Problems
The convection element runs in
conjunction with the inner and outer
broil elements. This transfer of heat
(mainly from the convection element)
seals moisture inside large roasts. Use
this setting for whole turkeys, whole
chickens, hams, etc.

Roasting Tips (cont.)
Roasting Tips (cont.)
After preparing the meat and placing on broiler pan, follow these
steps for proper probe placement.
• 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 10ºF (-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.
• Lay the probe on the outside of the meat along the top or side and
mark with your finger where the edge of the meat comes to on the
probe. The point should rest in the center of the thickest meaty part
of the roast.
• Insert the probe completely into the meat. It should not touch the
bone, fat, or gristle. For roasts with no bone, insert the probe into
the meatiest part of the roast. For bone-in ham or lamb, insert the
probe into the center of the lowest large muscle or joint. Insert the
probe into the meatiest part of the inner thigh from below and
parallel to the leg of a whole turkey.
• When setting the probe temperature, it is recommended to set the
temperature about 10°F (4°C) lower than desired internal
temperature. The meat will continue to cook when removed from
the oven and will reach the desired doneness while “standing”.
For many foods, especially roasts and poultry, internal food temperature
is the best test for doneness. The meat probe takes the guesswork out
of roasting by cooking foods to the exact doneness you want.
Use of probes other than the one provided with this product may result
in damage to the probe. Use the handles of the probe and plug when
inserting and removing them from the meat and outlet.
Operation
Operation
Note: Double oven models have a probe in the upper oven only.
• To avoid damaging your probe, DO NOT use tongs to pull on the
cable when removing.
• To avoid breaking the probe, make sure food is completely defrosted
before inserting.
• To prevent possible burns, DO NOT unplug the probe from the
outlet until the oven has cooled.
• NEVER leave the probe inside the oven during a self-cleaning cycle.
• DO NOT store the probe in the oven.

CONV BROIL
(Convection Broil)
LOW 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 peak temperatures on the
food. Use this setting for broiling thick
cuts of meats.
HI BROIL
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 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.
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
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 over-browning it.
Use this setting for broiling small and
average cuts of meat.
38
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 selector to desired broiling function and the
temperature control knob to “BROIL”.
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.

• 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.

Convection Dehydrate/Defrost
Cleaning and Maintenance
Convection Dehydrate
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.
This oven is designed not only to cook, but also to dehydrate fruits
and vegetables.
1. Prepare the food as recommended.
Oven Surfaces
2. Arrange the food on drying racks (not included with the oven;
contact a local store handling speciality cooking utensils).
3. Set the appropriate low temperature and turn the selector to
“TRU CONV”.
CAUTION
You must carefully check the food during the dehydration process to
ensure that it does not catch fire.
Convection Defrost
Several different finishes have been used in your electric oven.
Cleaning instructions for each surface are given below. Your oven
features a Self-Clean cycle for the oven interior. See “Self-Clean Cycle”
for complete instructions. NEVER USE AMMONIA, STEEL WOOL
PADS OR ABRASIVE CLOTHS, CLEANSERS, OVEN CLEANERS, OR
ABRASIVE POWDERS. THEY CAN PERMANENTLY DAMAGE
YOUR OVEN.
Control Knobs
MAKE SURE ALL THE CONTROL KNOBS POINT TO THE OFF
POSITION BEFORE REMOVING. Pull the knobs straight off. Wash in
detergent and warm water. Dry completely and replace by pushing
firmly onto stem.
1. Place the frozen food on a baking sheet.
Stainless Steel Parts
2. Set the temperature control to “OFF”.
Operation
3. Turn the selector to “TRU CONV”.
WARNING
To avoid sickness and food waste, DO NOT allow defrosted food to
remain in the oven for more than 2 hours.
Some stainless steel parts may have a protective wrap, which must be
peeled off. All stainless steel body parts should be wiped regularly with
hot, soapy water at the end of each cooling period and with liquid
cleaner designed for this material when soapy water will not do the job.
If build-up occurs, DO NOT use steel wool, or abrasive cloths, cleaners,
or powders. If it is necessary to scrape stainless steel surface to remove
encrusted material, soak area with hot, wet 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 surfaces.
Scratches are almost impossible to remove.
WARNING
DO NOT turn the Temperature Control on during defrosting. Turning
the convection fan on will accelerate the natural defrosting of the food
without the heat.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Self-Clean Cycle
Broiler Pan and Grid
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.
Clean with detergent and hot water. For stubborn spots, use a soap-filled
steel wool pad.
Oven Racks
Clean with detergent and hot water. Stubborn spots can be scoured
with a soap-filled steel wool pad. DO NOT CLEAN THE OVEN RACKS
OR RACK SUPPORT USING THE SELF-CLEAN CYCLE. They could
sustain damage due to the extreme heat of the Self-Clean cycle.
Meat Probe
The meat probe may be cleaned with soap and water or a soap-filled
scouring pad. Cool the probe before cleaning. Scour stubborn spots
with a soap-filled scouring pad, rinse and dry.
• DO NOT immerse the meat probe in water.
• DO NOT store the probe in the oven.
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. 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” (5.1 cm) 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.
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!
Product Care
KEEP THE KITCHEN WELL-VENTED DURING THE
SELF-CLEAN CYCLE.
44
45
Product Care
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.
Self-Clean Cycle
Replacing Oven Lights
To start the Self-Clean cycle:
WARNING
1. Close the door completely.
2. Turn the oven selector knob clockwise to the “SELF CLEAN” mode.
3. Turn the temperature control knob past the clean setting until the
knob stops. At this time, the clean indicator light will come on.
Within 30 seconds, the automatic door latch engages and the oven
indicator light comes on. The oven indicator light will remain ON
until the oven reaches the self-clean temperature and will then cycle
on and off during the self-clean cycle. When the oven reaches the
elevated temperature needed for self-clean, the door-lock indicator
light comes on.
4. The door-lock indicator light will remain on until the self-clean is
completed or interrupted and the oven temperature drops to a safe
temperature. A complete cycle is approximately 3-1/2 hours with an
additional 30 minutes needed for the oven to cool down enough
for the door latch to disengage.
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.
5. When the cycle is completed, turn both the oven selector and
temperature control knob to the “OFF” position. When the oven
has completely cooled, open door and remove any ash from the
oven surfaces with a damp cloth.
To stop the Self-Clean cycle:
To cancel or interrupt the self-cleaning cycle, turn both the
temperature control knob and the oven function selector knob to
“OFF”. When the oven temperature drops to a safe temperature, the
automatic door latch will release and the oven door can be opened.
When the oven has completely cooled, remove any ash from the
oven surfaces with a damp sponge or cloth.
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Disconnect the electric power at the main fuse or circuit
breaker before replacing bulb.
WARNING
DO NOT touch bulb with bare hands. Clean off any signs of oil from
the bulb and handle with a soft cloth.
Halogen Lights
1. Unsnap glass light cover using a
screwdriver in the access groove.
2. Firmly grasp light bulb and
pull out.
3. Replace with halogen bulb
using volt and wattage
requirements listed on glass
cover.
4. Replace the light cover by
snapping glass cover onto
metal box.
