food in the oven.
SELF-CLEANING OVEN MODELS
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts of the
appliance listed in this Owner's Guide. Before using the
self-cleaning cycle of the appliance, remove all utensils
stored in the appliance.
• Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The wall oven is
vented at the upper control panel or at the center trim
depending of the model. Touching the surfaces in this area
when the wall oven is operating may cause severe burns.
Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items near the
oven vent. These items could melt or ignite.
• Do not clean the oven door gasket. The door gasket is
essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub,
damage or move the gasket.
• Placement of Oven Racks. Always place oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool. Remove all utensils
from the rack before removing rack. If rack must be moved

grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let pot
holders contact the hot oven element or interior of the oven.
• Do not use oven cleaners. No oven cleaner or oven liner
protective coating of any kind should be used in or around
any part of the appliance
The health of some birds is extremely
sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-clean
cycle of any wall oven. Move birds to another well
ventilated room.
• Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. The broiler
pan and grid allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away
from the high heat of the broiler.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
4
Before Setting Oven Controls
Some models are equipped with a blower
which runs in baking and self-cleaning mode to keep all
internal components at a cool temperature. The blower
may keep running even if the oven has been turned off,
until the components have cooled down.
Oven Vent Location
The ovens are vented at the center trim. When the oven is on, warm
air is released through the vent. This venting is necessary for proper
air circulation in the oven and good baking results.
Oven Vent Location
Arranging Oven Racks
ALWAYS ARRANGE OVEN RACKS WHEN THE OVEN IS COOL (PRIOR TO
OPERATING THE OVEN). Always use oven mitts when using the oven.
To remove an oven rack, pull the rack forward until it stops. Lift up front of rack and slide
out.
To replace an oven rack, fit the rack onto the guides on the oven walls. Tilt the front of
the rack upward and slide the rack back into place.
1 Oven Rack
Air Circulation in the Oven
If using 1 rack, place in center of oven. If using multiple racks, stagger cookware as shown.
For best air circulation and baking results allow 2-4" (5-10 cm) around the cookware for proper
air circulation and be sure pans and cookware do not touch each other, the oven door, sides
or back of the oven cavity. The hot air must circulate around the pans and cookware in the
oven for even heat to reach around the food.
Multiple Oven Racks
Oven Door Bracket Adjustment (Some Models)
If the oven door is too loose or too tight to open, it is possible to adjust it. There is
an adjustable bracket located on the front frame under the door on the handle side.
(see figure)
To have an oven door opening loosen, push down the adjustable bracket and to have
it tighten, lift up the bracket.
Setting Oven Controls
Refer to the Electronic Oven Control Guide for oven settings.

Cooking Informations
Broiling
Broiling is a method of cooking tender cuts of meat by direct heat under the
broil element of the oven.
Preheating
Preheating is suggested when searing rare steaks. (Remove all utensils
before preheating the oven. Foods will stick if placed on hot metal.) To
preheat, set the control(s) to BROIL as instructed in the Owner's Guide. Wait
for the element to become red-hot, usually about 2 minutes. Preheating is not
necessary when broiling meats well-done.
To Broil
Broil on side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side.
Season and serve. Always pull rack out to the "stop" position before turning or
removing food.
Determine Broiling Times
Broiling times vary, so watch the food closely. Time not only depends on the
distance from element, but on the thickness and aging of meat, fat content
and doneness preferred. The first side usually requires a few minutes longer
than second. Frozen meats also require additional time.
Grid
Broiling Tips (some models)
The broiler pan and its grid allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away
from the high heat of the broiler.
DO NOT use your pan without its grid. DO NOT cover the grid with foil.
The exposed grease could ignite.
Should an oven fire occur, close the oven door and turn off the
oven. If the fire continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use fire
extinguisher. DO NOT put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive.
Broiler Pan
Some Models
Broiler Clean-Up Tips (some models):
To make cleaning easier, line the bottom of the broiler pan with aluminum foil. DO NOT cover the broiler grid with foil.
To prevent grease from baking on, remove the broiler pan from the oven as soon as cooking is completed. Use hot pads
because the broiler pan is extremely hot. Pour off grease. Soak the pan in HOT, soapy water.
Clean the broiler pan as soon as possible after each use. If necessary, use soap-filled steel wool pads. Heavy scouring may
scratch the grid.
7
Cooking Informations
Convection Cooking (some models)
The convection oven uses a fan located in the rear wall of the oven to circulate heated air around the food to be cooked. The
controlled air flow pattern quickly seals the food surface retaining the natural juices and flavour. This method of cooking enables
you to obtain the best culinary results when baking, thawing, dehydrating and roasting foods.
Convection notes:
1. Batch cooking is more convenient with better results.
2. Defrosting is quicker in convection mode when compared to regular radiant cooking.
3. Remember to use tested recipes with times adjusted for convection baking/roasting when using the convection mode. Times
may be reduced by as much as 30% when using the convection feature.
Convection Roasting (some models)
When convection roasting, use your broiler pan and grid, and
the roasting rack. Your broiler pan will catch grease spills and
the grid will help prevent spatters. The roasting rack will hold the
meat.
Roasting Rack
To prevent food from contacting the broil
element and to prevent grease spattering, DO NOT use the
roasting rack when broiling.
Broiler Pan Grid
1. Place oven rack on next-bottom rack position.
2. Place the grid in your broiler pan. The roasting rack fits on
the grid allowing the heated air circulate under the food for
even cooking and helps to increase browning on the
underside. Make sure the roasting rack is securely seated
on the grid in your broiler pan. DO NOT use your broiler pan
without the grid or cover the grid with aluminum foil.
3. Position food (fat side up) on the roasting rack.
4. Place your broiler pan on the oven rack. Note: Always pull
rack out to the stop position before removing food.
Broiler Pan
Some Models
NOTE: For best convection roasting result, always use your
broiler pan, grid and roasting rack.

Care & Cleaning
(Cleaning Chart)
Surfaces
How to Clean
Aluminum (Trim Pieces)
& Vinyl
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth. Do not scour or use all-purpose
cleaners, ammonia, powdered cleaners or commercial oven cleaner. They can scratch
and discolor aluminum.
Painted and Plastic Parts,
Body Parts, and Decorative
Trim
For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils and builtup grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on soil for 30 to 60
minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners on any of these
materials; they can scratch.
Control Panel
Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls to OFF. Lightly spray the control
panel with a liquid cleaner. Wipe with a soft cloth or paper towel. DO NOT use
abrasive cleaners or scouring pads. These can permanently damage the control
panel.
Stainless Steel, Chrome,
Decorative Trim
Clean stainless steel with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water
and a cloth. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or
chlorines. Do not use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are
especially made for cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners
from the surface as bluish stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
Porcelain Enamel
Broiler Pan and Insert(some
models), Door Liner and Body
Parts.
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1
solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with an
ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a
damp cloth, and then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a
clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future
heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners.
Oven Racks
Oven racks may be removed or left in the oven during the Self-Clean cycle for
cleaning. If removed, clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following manufacturer's
instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry.
If the racks are cleaned in the Self-Clean cycle, their color will turn slightly blue and
the finish will be dull. After the Self-Clean cycle is complete, and the oven has
cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small
amount of salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack positions).
Oven Door
Use soap & water to thoroughly clean the top, sides and front of the oven door. Rinse
well. You may use a glass cleaner on the outside glass of the oven door. DO NOT
immerse the door in water. DO NOT spray or allow water or the glass cleaner to
enter the door vents. DO NOT use oven cleaners, cleaning powders or any harsh
abrasive cleaning materials on the outside of the oven door. DO NOT clean the oven
door gasket
Self-Cleaning Models:
The oven door gasket is made of a woven material, which is essential for a good
seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or remove this gasket.
9
Care & Cleaning
Self-Cleaning (some models)
Self-Cleaning Oven
A Self-Cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking
temperatures) which eliminate soils completely or reduces them to a fine
powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
• Allow the oven to cool before cleaning.
• Wear rubber gloves when cleaning any exterior parts of the oven manually.
• DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners or oven protection coatings in or
around any part of the self-cleaning oven.
• DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The woven material of the oven door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or
remove the gasket.
• DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so could
cause damage.
• Remove all utensils and any aluminum foil. These items cannot withstand
high cleaning temperatures.
• Oven racks do not have to be removed, if they are not removed during the
Self-Clean cycle their color will turn slightly blue and the finish will be dull. If
left in, after the cycle is complete and the oven has cooled, rub the sides of the
oven racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of salad oil
(this will make the racks glide easier into the rack position).
• Remove any excessive spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the SelfCleaning cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers
can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. DO NOT
allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes,
sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may leave
a dull spot even after cleaning.
• Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door gasket
and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. These areas heat
sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water.
NOTE: Prior to setting the Self-Clean cycle, any spills remaining on the oven
bottom should be removed.
During the self-cleaning
cycle, the outside of the wall oven can
become very hot to the touch. DO NOT
leave small children unattended near
the appliance.
The health of some birds
is extremely sensitive to the fumes given
off during the self-clean cycle of any wall
oven. Move birds to another well
ventilated room.
DO NOT line the oven
walls, racks, bottom or any other part of
the appliance with aluminum foil. Doing
so will destroy heat distribution, produce
poor baking results and cause permanent
damage to the interior (aluminum foil will
melt to the interior surface of the oven).
DO NOT force the oven
door open. This can damage the
automatic door locking system. Use
caution when opening the door after the
Self-Cleaning cycle is completed. The
oven may still be VERY HOT.
Some models have an exposed Bake element in the lower oven cavity. On these
models the bake element is designed to be tilted up using your hand from the front of
the bake element. This will allow easier access to the oven bottom for cleaning. Be
careful not to raise the element more than 4 or 5 inches from the resting position.
The oven bake and broil elements may appear to have cooled after
they have been turned OFF. The elements may still be hot and burns may
occur if these elements are touched before they have cooled sufficiently.
What to Expect during Cleaning:
While the oven is in operation, the oven heats to temperatures much higher than those
used in normal cooking. Sounds of metal expansion and contraction are normal. Odor is
also normal as the food soil is being removed. Smoke may appear through the oven vent.
If heavy spillovers are not wiped up before cleaning, they may flame and cause more
smoke and odor than usual. This is normal and safe and should not cause alarm. If
available, use an exhaust fan during the self-cleaning cycle.
To Set the Self-Clean Cycle
Refer to the Oven Control Guide for Self-Clean Cycle settings.
10
Note: See additional cleaning
information for the oven door in the
General Care & Cleaning section.
Care & Cleaning
Cleaning the Manual Clean Oven (Regular oven models only)
Porcelain has a smooth finish and is a type of glass fused to metal. Oven cleaners can be used on all interior oven surfaces.
REMOVE SPILLOVERS AND HEAVY SOILING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
REGULAR CLEANINGS WILL REDUCE THE NUMBER OF MAJOR CLEANINGS LATER.
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
• Allow the oven to cool before cleaning.
• Wear rubber gloves when cleaning the appliance manually.
General Cleaning
Remove soils using hot, soapy water. Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes,
saukerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.
To Remove Heavy Soil
1. Allow a dish of ammonia to sit in the oven overnight or for several hours with the oven door closed. Clean softened spots
using hot, soapy water. Rinse well with water and a clean cloth.
2. If soil remains, use a soap-filled scouring pad or a nonabrasive cleaner. If necessary, use an oven cleaner following
manufacturer's instructions. DO NOT mix ammonia with other cleaners.
Adhere to the following precautions when using oven cleaners:
1. DO NOT spray on the electrical controls or switches because it could cause a short circuit and result in sparking or fire.
2. DO NOT allow a film from the cleaner to build up on the temperature sensing bulb; it could cause the oven to heat improperly.
(The bulb is located in the rear of the oven.) Carefully wipe the bulb clean after each oven cleaning, being careful not to move
the bulb. A change in its position could affect how the oven bakes. Avoid bending the bulb and capillary tube.
3. DO NOT spray any cleaner on the oven door trim or gasket, handles or any exterior surfaces of the appliance, wood or painted
surfaces. The cleaner can damage these surfaces.
To Clean the Oven Bottom
Clean using hot, soapy water, a mild abrasive cleanser, a soap-filled abrasive pad or oven cleaner following manufacturer's
instructions.
Ammonia must be rinsed before operating the oven. Provide adequate ventilation.
DO NOT line the oven walls, bottom, racks or any other part of the appliance with aluminum foil. Doing so will
destroy heat distribution, produce poor baking results and cause permanent damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil will melt
to the interior surface of the oven).
