Lower: move black part toward “LO.” One notch equals about 10°F (5%). Variable Broil Feature: You might want to broil some foods slower than others. Broiling can be slowed down by setting a lower temperature on the Oven Temperature Control Knob instead of “BROIL.” Using a lower temperature will cause the broil element to turn on and off during the broiling SO that the food broils more slowly. When the Oven Temperature Control Knob is on “BROIL,” the Broil Element heats all the time. Set the temperature lower and it heats some of the time. The lower the temperature setting, the shorter are the periods of heating. NOTE: The Oven Selector must be on BROIL and the door must be partly open for ail broilirig temperatures. Resetting the Oven Temperature Control: Does your new oven seem hotter or colder than your old oven? The temperatures in older ovens often shift very gradually, getting hotter or colder without the user really noticing the change. Your new oven is properly adjusted to provide accurate temperatures, but when compared to your old range, the new design may give you different baking results. If you think that the temperature setting on your range needs to be hotter or colder, you can adjust the Oven Temperature Control Knob by yourself. To adjust the setting, first pull the Oven Temperature Control Knob straight off. On the back, just across from the locking screw, are a row of notches on the black part of the knob and one tooth on the chrome part. To set your oven about lO”F(5”C) cooler, loosen the locking screw about two full turns and move the row of notches one notch closer to “LO.” To set your oven about lO”F(5”C) warmer, move the row of notches one notch closer to “HI.” Each notch equals about lO”F(5”C). Tighten the locking screw and put the knob back on the control panel. Oven rack positions Higher: move black part toward “HI.” One notch equals about 10°F (5°C). Your oven has two racks. Always put the racks where you want them to be before you turn on the oven. To remove a rack, take hold of it on the front edge and pull it out until it stops. Then lift up the front edge and pull again. It will slide past the stops, out of the guides and out of the oven. To put it back, fit the back corners into the guides at each side of the oven and slide it in, keeping the front tilted up until the rack passes the stops in the rack guides. For: Baking Broiling Roasting LARGE cuts of meat Roasting SMALLER cuts of meat Place Rack: On the second rack guide from the bottom or so food is in the center of the oven. So food is about the distance from the broil element suggested in the broiling timetable under “Using the Oven Controls.” On the bottom rack guides. So food is in the center of the oven. To remove rack, pull forward until rack stops, lift front and pull. 5 When baking, always leave at least 1% to 2 inches (4-5 cm) of air space between the sides of a pan and other pans and the oven wail for air circulation. For best results, get additional information on placing pans, cookie sheets and other utensils from the “Cooking Guide.” The oven vent There is an oven vent under the right rear surface element. When the oven is on, heated air will escape through it. A vent is needed for air circulation in the oven during baking. You can cook on this surface unit while the oven is on. A warm pan of food will stay warm on this unit while the oven is on. It may be warm enough to melt butter, too. Do not try to save heat or energy by blocking the vent. Poor baking can result. Plastic utensils may melt if they are oyer the vent while the oven is on. The optional rotisserie If you would like a rotisserie with your oven, you can order a kit (Part No. 261880) from your dealer. Easy installation instructions come with the kit. Accessory canning kit (Part No. 242905) The large diameter of most water-bath or pressure canners combined with high heat settings for long periods of time can shorten the life of regular surface units and cause damage to the cooktop. If you plan to use the cooktop for canning, we recommend the installation of a Canning Kit. Order the kit from your Whirlpool Dealer or Tech-Care Service Company. SEE THE “COOKING INFORMATION. Cleaning Pull knob and trim ring straight out. Remember how the spring goes. GUIDE” FOR IMPORTANT CANNING and caring for your range Your range is designed to be easy to clean. You will usually wipe off spills and spatters when they happen, but you will sometimes want to clean under and behind the control knobs and surface units. This section will tell you how to remove those, and what to use when cleaning. Removing and replacing control knobs: 1. Be sure the control knobs are set to “OFF’. 2. Pull the black knobs straight off. 3. If the control has a chrome trim ring, pull it straight off. 4. Wash the knobs (and trim rings) in warm, sudsy water. 5. Replace the trim rings first. If the control spring was removed, put it back exactly as shown on the left.. .smail end first. 6. Hold the black knob so it points to “OFF.” Push it straight back on. Removing and Replacing Oven Control Knobs: 1. Be sure the knobs are set to “OFF.” 2. Pull each knob straight off. 3. Wash the knobs in warm, sudsy water. 4. The knobs are not interchangeable. Make sure you put the adjustable Oven Temperature Control Knob on the right place, and the nonadjustable Oven Selector Knob on the other. 6 Receutacie Removing surface units and reflector bowls: 1. First. be sure the Surface Untt Controls are all “OFF” and that the surface units are cool. 2. Lift each surface unit about an inch (2.5 cm) at the edge away frown the plug-in (receptacle). Pull the unit straight away from the plug-irl. Do not wash surjace units: they will burn themselves clean during normal use. 3. Lift out the re!lector bowls, To remove surface unit, lift and pull straight out. Hold surface unit level when replacing. Replacins reflector bowls and surface units: 1. Be s&e the surface unit controls are on “OFF.” 2. Put the reflector bowls back into their places. Make sure you can see the plug-ins (receptacles) for the surface units through the square hole in the side of each bowl. 3. Hold the surface unit level with the prongs (termlnals) pointing at the plug-in 4. With the prongs started in the plug-in. start pushing in on the surface unit. At the same time. lift a little on the side of the surface unit that’s by the plug-in 5. Make sure the surface-unit prongs are pushed Into the plug-In as far as they will go The surface unit should fit into the reflector bowl and be level Prop up the top with support rod. Cleaning under the cooktop: To clean the area under the cooktop, ltft the front of the cooktop at the center. Raise the swing-up rod to hold It. (Be sure the tip of the rod is in the notch in the cooktop.) Use warm soapy water and a sponge or cloth. Scouring powders or any other abrasive cleaner may harm porcelainenamel finishes and can scratch chrome. Be careful not to raise the cooktop so high that it touches the control console. And don’t drop it. Dropping the cooktop can chip or crack a hard porcelain finish. or damage side panels and surface units. Easier cleaning with aluminum foil: Oven cleaning can be a chore when spillovers bake onto the bottom of the oven. Use aluminum foil so you can just throw it away with the spillovers. You can use the heavy-duty 18.inch (45 cm) aluminum foil found in most grocery stores. Or you can order an aluminum foil kit (Part Number 241430) from your Whirlpool Dealer. Use aluminum easy cleaning. foil for Pull straight with t’he angle of Dart-oDen door. Push down evenlv. Pull to stop. Lift; pull again. When cutting thr foil. make sure it IS long enough to cover the bottom with enough left over to start up both sides. Make sure the bake element IS cool Lift it far enough to raise its feet from the bottom of the oven. (You may have to remove the oven rack.) Slide the foil sheet under the bake element. Make sure it is centered and long enough to start up the sides. When you put the bake element back down. make sure all the feet rest solidly on the foil and that the foil is smoothed out across the bottom of the oven. If the feet on the element are not solidly on the foil. the oven mai’ not bake properly. Removing the oven door: Removtng the ()ven door may make it easier to clean the oven. To remove the door. ftrst open it to the first stop (about 4 inches or 10 cm). Take hold of both sides of the door near the top: then lift it at the same angle it is in. With the door off. you will notice how the ends of the hinges slide into slots at the bottom corners of the door. To put the door back on. fit both bottom corners of the door over the ends of the hinges. Push the door down evenly. so neither corner gets ahead of the other. When it reaches the bottom. you can close the door. A safety latch will hold the door open until it is on correctly. Removing the storage drawer (use care when handling the drawer): The drawer below your oven is meant to store pots and pans Never keep anything in there that will burn or melt. You may want to remove the drawer for cleaning under the range. Pull it straight out until in stops Use care when handling the drawer. Lift the front and pull some more to get it over the stop. Now slide it out until it stops agaln Lift the (irawer away from the range until it slips out of the guides. To put II back. frt the side rails at the back of the drawer into both guides on the range. Push it closed while lifting the front to get past the stops.
