IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
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.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Troubleshooting Tips
Care and Cleaning
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should be followed, including the
following:
■ Use this appliance only for its intended
purpose as described in this Owner’s
Manual.
■ Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or
hang on the door. They could damage the
oven, or cause severe personal injury.
■ Be sure your appliance is properly
installed and grounded by a qualified
technician in accordance with the
provided installation instructions.
■ Be sure the oven is securely installed in
a cabinet that is firmly attached to the
house structure. Never allow anyone to
climb, sit, stand or hang on the oven door.
■ Do not attempt to repair or replace any
part of your oven unless it is specifically
recommended in this manual. All other
servicing should be referred to a qualified
technician.
■ Never leave the oven door open when you
are not watching the oven.
■ Have the installer show you the location
of the circuit breaker or fuse. Mark it for
easy reference.
Consumer Support
■ Before performing any service, disconnect
the oven power supply at the household
distribution panel by removing the fuse or
switching off the circuit breaker.
■ Do not leave children alone—children
should not be left alone or unattended in
an area where an appliance is in use. They
should never be allowed to sit or stand on
any part of the appliance.
2
■ Always keep combustible wall covering,
curtains or drapes a safe distance from
your oven.
■ Always keep dish towels, dish cloths, pot
holders and other linens a safe distance
from your oven.
■ Always keep wooden and plastic utensils
and canned food a safe distance away
from your oven.
■ Teach children not to play with the
controls or any other part of the oven.
■ Large scratches or impacts to glass doors
can lead to broken or shattered glass.
WARNING!
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
■ Never leave jars or cans of fat drippings in
or near your oven.
CAUTION : Items of interest to
■ Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
■
children should not be stored in cabinets
above an oven; children climbing on the
oven to reach items could be seriously
injured.
■ Never wear loose-fitting or hanging
garments while using the appliance. Be
careful when reaching for items stored in
cabinets over the oven. Flammable material
could be ignited if brought in contact with
hot surfaces or heating elements and may
cause severe burns.
■ For your safety, never use your appliance
for warming or heating the room.
■ Do not let cooking grease or other
flammable materials accumulate in or
near the oven.
■ Flame in the oven can be smothered
completely by closing the oven door and
turning the oven off or by using a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type fire
extinguisher.
■ Potentially hot surfaces include oven vent
openings, surfaces near the openings,
crevices around the oven door, the edges
of the window and metal trim parts above
the door.
■ REMEMBER: The inside surface of the oven
may be hot when the door is opened.
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
■ Place the oven shelf in the desired position
while the oven is cool. If shelves must be
handled when hot, do not let pot holder
contact the heating elements.
■ When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
■ Pulling out the shelf to the stop-lock is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also
a precaution against burns from touching
hot surfaces of the door or oven walls.
■ Do not use the oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch on fire.
■ Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in an oven can ignite.
■ Do not leave paper products, cooking
utensils or food in the oven when not
in use.
■ After broiling, always take the broiler pan
out of the oven and clean it. Leftover
grease in the broiler pan can catch fire
next time you use the pan.
■ Clean only parts listed in this Owner’s
Manual.
■ Do not use aluminum foil to line oven
bottoms, except as suggested in this manual.
Improper installation of aluminum foil may
result in a risk of electric shock or fire.

Consumer Support
■ Do not touch the heating elements or the
interior surface of the oven. These surfaces
may be hot enough to burn even though
they are dark in color. During and after
use, do not touch, or let clothing or other
flammable materials contact any interior
area of the oven; allow sufficient time for
cooling first.
■ Keep the oven vent unobstructed.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick
up a flaming pan. Turn the controls off.
■ Do not heat unopened food containers.
Pressure could build up and the container
could burst, causing an injury.
Care and Cleaning
■ Use only dry pot holders—moist or damp
pot holders on hot surfaces may result in
burns from steam. Do not let pot holders
touch hot heating elements. Do not use a
towel or other bulky cloth.
■ Stand away from the oven when opening
the oven door. Hot air or steam which
escapes can cause burns to hands, face
and/or eyes.
Operating Instructions
■ Do not store flammable materials in
an oven.

SELF-CLEANING OVEN
■ Do not clean the door gasket. The door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage or
move the gasket.
Care and Cleaning
■ Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial
oven cleaner or oven liner protective
coating of any kind should be used in or
around any part of the oven. Residue from
oven cleaners will damage the inside of the
oven when the self-clean cycle is used.
■ Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the
broiler pan, grid and other cookware.
■ Be sure to wipe up excess spillage before
starting the self-cleaning operation.
■ If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions,
turn the oven off and disconnect the power

Baking results will be better if baking
pans are centered in the oven as much as
possible. Pans should not touch each
other or the walls of the oven. If you need
to use two racks, stagger the pans so one
is not directly above the other, and leave
approximately 11⁄2″ between pans, from
the front, back and sides of the wall.
You can use aluminum foil to line the
broiler pan and broiler grid. However,
you must mold the foil tightly to the grid
and cut slits in it just like the grid.
Cut slits in the foil just like the grid.
Aluminum foil may also be used to catch a
spillover.
Never entirely cover a rack with
aluminum foil. This will disturb the heat
circulation and result in poor baking.
A smaller sheet of foil may be used to
catch a spillover by placing it on a lower
rack several inches below the food.

How to Set the Oven for Broiling
If your oven is connected to 208 volts,
rare steaks may be broiled by
preheating the broiler and positioning
the oven rack one position higher.
Leave the door open to the broil stop position.
The door stays open by itself, yet the proper
temperature is maintained in the oven.
NOTE: Food can be broiled with the door
closed but it may not brown as well because
the oven heating element will cycle on and off.
Place the meat or fish on the broiler
grid in the broiler pan.
Follow suggested rack positions in
the Broiling Guide.
The size, weight, thickness, starting
temperature and your preference of
doneness will affect broiling times. This
guide is based on meats at refrigerator
temperature.

For many foods, especially roasts and poultry, internal food temperature is the best test for doneness. The
temperature 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.
Cable
Plug
Use the handles of the probe and plug
when inserting and removing them from
the meat and outlet.
The temperature probe has a
skewer-like probe at one end and a
plug at the other end that goes into
the outlet in the oven.
■ To avoid breaking the probe, make sure food is
completely defrosted before inserting.
Handles
■ To prevent possible burns, do not unplug
the probe from the outlet until the oven
has cooled.
■ Never leave your probe inside the oven during
a self-cleaning cycle.
■ Do not store the probe in the oven.
After preparing the meat and placing it
on a trivet or on the broiler pan grid,
follow these directions for proper probe
placement.
Insert the probe completely into the
meat, up to the handle. It should
not touch bone, fat or gristle.
Insert the probe into the center of dishes
such as meat loaf or casseroles. When
cooking fish, insert the probe from just
above the gill into the meatiest area,
parallel to the backbone.
Insert the probe into the meatiest part of
the inner thigh from below and parallel
to the leg of a whole turkey.
Insert the probe into the meat.
Plug the probe into the outlet in the
oven. Make sure it’s pushed all the
way in. Close the oven door.
Press the PROBE pad.
Press the number pads to set the
desired internal food or meat
temperature.
Press the BAKE pad.
Press the START pad.
The display will flash if the probe is inserted
into the outlet and you have not set a probe
temperature and pressed the START pad.
When the oven starts to heat, the word
LO will be in the display.
When the internal temperature of
the meat reaches the number you
have set, the probe and the oven
turn off and the oven control
signals. To stop the signal, press the
CLEAR/OFF pad. Use hot pads to
remove the probe from the food.
Do not use tongs to pull on it—they
might damage it.
To change the oven temperature during
the Roast cycle, press the BAKE pad and
then the number pads to set the new
temperature.
■ If the probe is removed from the food before
the final temperature is reached, a tone will
sound and the display will flash until the probe
is removed from the oven.
■ You can use the timer even though you
cannot use timed oven operations.

How to Set the Oven For Roasting When Using the Probe
Care and Cleaning
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.
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

Convection Fan
In a convection oven, a fan circulates hot air
over, under and around the food.
This circulating hot air is evenly distributed
throughout the oven cavity. As a result, foods
are evenly cooked and browned—often in less
time with convection heat.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
Using the convection oven.
NOTE: The convection fan will cycle on
and off while cooking to best distribute
hot air in the oven.
The convection oven fan shuts off when
the oven door is opened. DO NOT leave
the door open for long periods of time
while using convection cooking or you
may shorten the life of the convection
heating element.
1-Rack Convection Baking
The convection fan circulates the heated
air evenly over and around the food.
When convection baking with only 1 rack, use
CONVECTION BAKE 1 RACK and follow the
rack positions recommended in the Using the
oven section.
■ Ideal for evenly browned baked foods cooked
on 1 rack and for large foods. Additionally,
some time savings may be noticed.
■ Good results with cookies, biscuits, muffins,
brownies, cupcakes, cream puffs, sweet rolls,
angel food cake and bread.
Because heated air is circulated evenly
throughout the oven, foods can be
baked with excellent results using
multiple racks.
Multi-rack position 27 ″ oven.
Multi-rack baking may increase cook times
slightly for some foods but the overall
result is time saved. Cookies, muffins,
biscuits and other quickbreads give very
good results with multi-rack baking.
To cook food on more than one rack in
convection bake, use CONVECTION BAKE
MULTI.
30” Ovens
When baking on 3 racks, place one
rack in the second (B) position, one
in the fourth (D) position and one in
the 6th (F) position.
Multi-rack position 30 ″ oven.
27” Ovens
When baking on 3 racks, divide the oven
into thirds by placing the offset rack in
the third (C) rack position and the
straight racks in first (A) and fourth (D)
rack positions.
For two-rack baking, place the offset rack
in the bottom (A) rack position. Place
the straight rack in the third (C) rack
position.
CAUTION: When you are using the offset rack
(on 27″ models) in the lowest position (A), you
will need to use caution when pulling the rack
out. We recommend that you pull the rack out
several inches and then, using two pot holders,
pull the rack out by holding the sides of it. The
offset rack is low and you could be burned if you
place your hand in the middle of the rack and pull
all the way out. Be very careful not to burn your
hand on the door when using a rack in the lowest
position (A).

■ Good for large tender cuts of meat, uncovered.
The convection fan circulates the heated
air evenly over and around the food.
Meat and poultry are browned on all
sides as if they were cooked on a
rotisserie. Using the roasting rack
provided, heated air will be circulated
over, under and around the food being
roasted. The heated air seals in juices
quickly for a moist and tender product
while, at the same time, creating a rich
golden brown exterior.
When you are convection roasting it is
important that you use the broiler pan
and grid and the special roasting rack for
best convection roasting results. The pan
is used to catch grease spills and the grid
is used to prevent grease spatters, while
the rack allows the heated air to circulate
under the meat and increase browning
on the underside of the meat or poultry.
■ Place the rack (on 27″ models, use
the offset rack) in the lowest rack
position (A).
■ Place the grid on the broiler pan
and put the roasting rack over them,
making sure the posts on the roasting
rack fit into the holes in broiler pan.
■ Place the meat on the roasting rack.
CAUTION: When you are using the offset rack
(on 27″ models) in the lowest position (A), you
will need to use caution when pulling the rack
out. We recommend that you pull the rack out
several inches and then, using two pot holders,
pull the rack out by holding the sides of it. The
offset rack is low and you could be burned if you
place your hand in the middle of the rack and pull
all the way out. Be very careful not to burn your
hand on the door when using a rack in the lowest
position (A).
When baking cookies, you will
get the best results if you use a
flat cookie sheet instead of a
pan with low sides.
Before using your convection oven,
check to see if your cookware leaves
room for air circulation in the oven.
If you are baking with several pans, leave
space between them. Also, be sure the
pans do not touch each other or the
walls of the oven.

serving dish.
■ For moist foods, cover them with an oven-safe
lid or aluminum foil.
■ Fried or crisp foods do not need to be covered,
but can become too dry if warmed for too long.
■ Repeated opening of the door allows the hot
air to escape and the food to cool.
■ Allow extra time for the temperature inside the
oven to stabilize after adding items.
■ With large loads it may be necessary to cover
some of the cooked food items.
■ For best results, place the food items in

The type of margarine will affect baking performance!
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” to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low-fat 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 best results with your old favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or stick spreads containing at least
70% vegetable oil.

Cleaning the Oven Door
To clean the inside of the door:
■ Because the area inside the gasket is
cleaned during the self-clean cycle, you
do not need to clean this by hand.
The gasket is designed with a gap at the
bottom to allow for proper air circulation.
Do not rub or clean the door gasket—
it has an extremely low resistance to
abrasion.
If you notice the gasket becoming worn,
frayed or damaged in any way or if it has
become displaced on the door, you should
have it replaced.
■ The area outside the gasket and
the door liner can be cleaned with a
soap-filled steel-wool or plastic pad,
hot water and detergent. Rinse well
with a vinegar and water solution.
To clean the outside of the door:
■ Use soap and water to thoroughly
clean the top, sides and front of the
oven door. Rinse well. You may also
use a glass cleaner to clean the glass
■ If any stain on the door vent trim is
persistent, use a soft abrasive cleaner
and a sponge-scrubber for best results.
■ Spillage of marinades, fruit juices,
tomato sauces and basting materials
containing acids may cause
discoloration and should be wiped
up immediately. When surface is cool,
clean and rinse.
■ Do not use oven cleaners, cleaning
powders or harsh abrasives on the

wool. After cleaning, rinse the racks and
rack with clean water and dry with a
clean cloth.
NOTE: The oven racks and convection roasting
rack may be cleaned in the self-cleaning oven.
However, the racks will darken in color, lose their
luster and become hard to slide if cleaned during
the self-cleaning cycle. You can wipe the rack
supports with cooking oil after self-cleaning to
make the racks slide more easily.
Do not clean the broil element. Any soil
will burn off when the element is heated.
The bake element is not exposed and
is under the removable oven floor. If
spillovers, residue or ash accumulate
on the removable oven floor, wipe up
before self-cleaning.
To clean the oven floor, take out the
removable floor (see the Removable Oven
