Feature".
• Many factors affect baking results. See baking for hints, cause and corrections.
See Adjusting Oven Temperature.
• Adjust the recipe’s recommended power levels or cooking times.
• Cookware is too lightweight or warped. Use heavier quality cookware so foods
being prepared may cook more evenly.
Flames inside

from oven vent
• Excessive spillovers in oven. For example this will happen for pie spillovers or

Solutions to common problems
Before you call
Problem
Solution
Oven smoke
excessively
during broiling
• Meat too close to the broiler element. Reposition the rack to provide more
clearance between the meat and the broiler. Preheat broil element for quick
searing operation.
• Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut remaining fatty
edges to prevent curling, but do not cut into the lean.
• Grid on broiler pan wrong side-up. Grease does not drain into broiler pan. Always
place the grid on the broiler pan with the ribs up and the slots down to allow grease
to drip into the pan.
• Broiler pan used without grid or grid cover with aluminum foil. DO NOT use the
broiler pan without the grid or cover the grid with aluminum foil.
• Oven needs to be cleaned. Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular
cleaning is necessary when broiling frequently. Grease or food spatters cause
excessive smoking.
• Failure to clean bottom, from top of oven, frame of oven or door area outside
oven seal. These areas are not in the self-cleaning area, but get hot enough
to burn on residue. Clean these areas before the self-cleaning cycle is started.
Burned on residue can be cleaned with a stiff nylon brush and water or a nylon
scrubber. Be careful not to damage the oven gasket.
• Excessive spillovers in oven. Set the self-clean cycle for longer cleaning time.

the Surface Control knob to LITE until burner ignites and then turn control knob
to desired flame size.
