WARNING!
For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire or
explosion, electric shock, or to prevent property damage, personal injury, or loss of life.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California 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.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
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.
■ Before performing any service, disconnect
the oven power supply at the household
distribution panel by removing the fuse or
switching off the circuit breaker.
Consumer Support
■ 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 coverings,
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
■ Do not store flammable materials in
an oven.
CAUTION: Items of interest to
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 use water on grease fires. Never
pick up a flaming pan. Turn the controls
off.
■ 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.
■ 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.
■ 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.
■ 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.
Consumer Support
■ Never leave jars or cans of fat drippings in
or near your oven.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ Do not let cooking grease or other
flammable materials accumulate in
or near the oven.
■ Keep the oven vent unobstructed.
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.
■ Do not heat unopened food containers.
Pressure could build up and the container
could burst, causing an injury.
Operating Instructions
■
■ 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.
Safety Instructions
www.GEAppliances.com
■ Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.

WARNING!
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
■ 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.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
■ 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.
Care and Cleaning
■ 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.
COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY…
Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meat to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 160°F and poultry
to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 180°F. Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against
foodborne illness.
SELF-CLEANING OVEN
Troubleshooting Tips
■ 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.
Consumer Support
■ 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 supply. Have it serviced by a
qualified technician.

Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it.
To preheat, set the oven at the correct
temperature. Preheating is necessary for
good results when baking cakes, cookies,
pastry and breads.
For ovens without a preheat indicator light or
tone, preheat 10 minutes.
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 shelves, 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 shelf with
aluminum foil. This will disturb the heat

You may find that your new oven cooks differently than the one it replaced. Use your new oven for a few weeks to
become more familiar with it. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the thermostat yourself.
Do not use thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores, to check the temperature setting of your oven.
These thermometers may vary 20–40 degrees.
NOTE: This adjustment will only affect baking and roasting temperatures; it does not affect broiling or self-cleaning
temperatures. The adjustment will be retained in memory after a power failure.

The type of margarine will affect baking performance!
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 affect 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.
15
Consumer Support
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.
Safety Instructions
The oven door must be closed and all controls must be set correctly for the cycle to work properly.
