(MEALTIMER Clock, pg. 8 1. When both the Oven Selector and Temperature Control are on BROIL, the broil element heats all the time. The Oven Temperature Control can be set on a temperature for slower broiling [see Broiling, page 7 ). BAKING OR ROASTING Put the rack(s] where you want them before turning on the oven. Rack(s) should be placed so food can be centered in the oven. Always leave at least 1 12 to 2 inches (4-5 cm) between the sides of the pan and the oven walls and pans.

While pushing the surface unit terminal into the receptacle, lift a little on the edge of the unit nearest the receptacle. 5. When the terminal is pushed into the receptacle as far as it will go, the surface unit will fit into the reflector bowl. Reflector bowls reflect heat back to the utensils on the surface units. They also help catch spills. When they are kept clean, they reflect heat better and look new longer. If a reflector bowl gets discolored, some of the utensils used may not be flat enough. Or some may be too large for the surface unit. In either case, some of the heat that is meant to go into or around a utensil goes down and heats the reflector bowl. This extra heat can discolor it. USING THE SELF-CLEANING CYCLE The self-cleaning cycle uses very hlgh heat to burn away soil. Before you start, make sure you understand exactly how to use the cycle safely. BEFORE YOU START 1. Clean areas that may not be cleaned during the cycle. Use hot water and detergent or a soapy steel-wool pad on... l the frame around the oven l the inside of the door, especially the part outside the oven seal. DO NOT try to clean the tlberglass seal.

DO NOT touch the range during ‘he cleaning cycle it can burn you DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners in your oven Damage to the porcelain finish may occur. DO NOT block the vent during the cleaning cycle. Air must move freely for best results SElTING THE CONTROLS 1. 18 Make sure the clock and start and stop time dials all have the right time of day 2. Push in the Stop Trme Knob and turn the hand clockwise about two or three hours (Two hours for light soil; three or more for heavier soil.) 3. Set the Oven Selector to CLEAN. The Clean Light will come on and the door will lock automatically. 6. 4. Set the Oven Temperature Control to CLEAN. 5. The Lock Light comes on when the oven gets above normal baking temperatures. The door can’t be unlocked when the Lock Light is on. 7. Turn the Oven Temperature Control to OFF. 8. After the oven is cool, wipe off any residue or ash with a damp cloth. If needed, touch up spots with cleanser or soapy steel-wool pad. When the Lock Light goes off, turn the Oven Selector to OFF. This unlocks the door, DO NOT TOUCH THE RANGE DURING THE CLEANING CYCLE. IT CAN BURN YOU. HOW IT WORKS During the self-cleaning cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it does 870’ F (466. C).
