To check if the device is installed and engaged properly, remove the kick panel or storage drawer
and inspect the rear leveling leg. Make sure it fits securely into the slot.
If you pull the range out from the wall lbr any reason, make sure tile device is properly
engaged when you push the range back against the wall. If it is not, there is a possible risk of

NOTICE
The Califomia Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Govemor of Califomia to
publish a list of substances known to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive
harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.
The fiberglass insulation in self-clean ovens gives off a very small amount of carbon monoxide during
the cleaning cycle. Exposure can be minimized by venting with an open window or using a ventilation
fan or hood.

Thetype of margarine will affect bakingperformance!
Q
Most recipes for baking have been developed using high-fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you
decrease the fat, the recipe may not give the same results as with a higher-fat product.
Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries, cookies or candies are made with low-fat spreads. The lower the fat
content of a spread product, the more noticeable these differences become.
Federal standards require products labeled "margarine" m contain at least 80% fht by weight. Low-Pat spreads,
on the other hand, contain less fat and more water: The high moisture content of these spreads affects the
texture and flavor of baked goods. For hest results with your old favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or
stick spreads containing at least 70% vegetable oil.
