OPERATION
OvenCookingTips
Opening the door often to check
foods will cause heat loss and poor
baking results.
It is normal to have some odor when
using your oven for the first time. To
help eliminate this odor, ventilate the
room by opening a window or using
a vent hood.
Preheating is bringing the oven
temperature up to the temperature
you will be using during baking. Let
the oven preheat when recipes call
for preheating.
iMPORTANT: Never cover the oven
bottom or oven rack with aluminum
foil. Improper use can cause poor
heat flow, poor baking results, and
may damage the oven finish. To
prevent staining from spillovers, you
may place a piece of aluminum foil or
a cookie sheet on the rack below the
food which may spill over.
To prolong the life of your oven light
bulb, follow this helpful tip: Always
turn the light off when the oven is not
in use or during a clean cycle. If your
oven light is left on for an extended
period of time, the oven will be warm
when the door is opened due to the
heat generated from the oven light
bulb.
Most recipes for baking have been
developed using high-fat products
such as butter or margarine (80% fat
by weight--the federal requirement
for products labeled "margarine").
You will get poor results if cakes, pies,
pastries, cookies, or candies are
made with low-fat spreads. Low-fat
spreads contain less fat and more
water. The high moisture content of
these spreads affects the texture and
flavor of favorite baked recipes. The
lower the fat content of a spread
product, the more noticeable these
differences become. To ensure best
results, use margarine, butter, or stick
spreads containing at least 70%
vegetable oil.
The oven vent is located under the
right rear element. This area could
become hot during oven use. It is
normal for steam to come out of
the vent and/or collect moisture
underneath when the oven is in use.
The vent is important for proper air
circulation. Never block this vent.

OPERATION
OvenCookingTips(cont.)
The Oven Temperature Sensor
continuously senses and controls the
temperature inside the oven. To keep
a constant set temperature, the
elements will cycle (turn on and off
during cooking).
Baking results will be better if baking
pans are centered in the oven as
much as possible. If baking with
more than one pan, place the pans
so each has at least 1 to 1W' of air
space around it. If baking four cake
layers at the same time, place two
layers on rack 2 and two layers on
rack 4. Stagger pans on the rack so
one is not directly above the other.
FLAT COOKIE SHEETS, without
sides, allow air to circulate all around
the cookies for even browning.
SHINY PANS reflect heat and are
perfect for cakes and quick breads
that need a light brown crust.
GLASS, DARK NON=STICK,
OR DARKENED=BY=AGE
BAKEWARE absorbs heat and can
be used for yeast breads, pie crust, or
foods that need a brown crust. The
oven temperature should be reduced
by 25°F.

OPERATION
OvenCookingTips(cont.)
You may feel that your new oven
cooks differently than the oven it
replaced. We recommend that you
use your new oven a few weeks to
become more familiar with it, following
the times given in your recipes as a
guide. If you feel your oven is too
hot or too cool for your cooking
preference, see Do-k-Yourself
Adjustment in the back of this manual
to make the adjustment.
The oven racks are designed with
stops, a convenience as well as a
safety precaution. The guides have a
bump to prevent the racks from tilting
when they are pulled out of the oven.
This design allows the racks to be
inserted in only one way.

CAUTION: When you are using the
rack in the lowest position (1), 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 potholders, pull the rack out
by holding the sides of it. The 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 (1).

and poultry to at least an INTERNAL
temperature of 180°F. Cooking to
these temperatures usually protects
against food-borne illness.
Broiling is cooking by direct heat from
the upper element. The oven door
should remain opened to the broil
stop position during broiling.
The closer you place foods to the
broil element, the faster foods brown
on the outside yet remain red to pink
in the center.
Moving meats away from the element
will allow the meat to cook to the
center while browning on the outside.
Using this positioning, cook side 1 at
least 2 minutes longer than side 2. If
your oven is connected to 208 volts,
you may want to use a higher rack
position and/or broil foods longer.
The size, weight, thickness, starting
temperature, and your preference of
the doneness of the meat will affect
broiling. The chart on the next page is
based on meats at refrigerator
temperature.
It is not necessary to preheat the oven
when broiling. Use the broiler pan and
grid that came with your range. Both
are designed for proper drainage of
fat and liquids.
.If foi! is used, it must be
molded tightly to the grid
and slits cut into the foi!
to match those of the grid. This
allows fats and liquids to drain
into the broiler pan, preventing
fire and excessive smoke.
Always remove the
pan and grid from
S_
the oven. Storing
or forgetting a
soiled broiler pan
in the oven is a potential
or fire hazard.

"DO-IT-YOURSELF"
TEMPERATURE
ADJUSTMENT
1. Press and hold, at the same
time, the HOUR UP and DOWN
arrow pads until the display
shows a two-digit number.
You may feel that your new oven
cooks differently than the oven it
replaced. We recommend that you
use your new oven a few weeks to
become more familiar with it, following
the times given in your recipes as a
guide.
2. Press the HOUR UP arrow pad to
increase the temperature up to
+35°F hotter.
or
Press the HOUR DOWN arrow
pad to decrease the temperature
down to -35°F cooler.
If you think your new oven is too hot
(burning foods) or not hot enough
(foods are undercooked), you can
adjust the temperature yourself. The
appearance and texture of foods is a
better indicator of oven accuracy than
an oven thermometer. These
thermometers can vary by 20-40
degrees from the true temperature of
the oven. In addition, the oven door
must be opened to read these
thermometers. Opening the door will
change the temperature of the oven.
3. When this adjustment has been
made, the display will return to the
time of day.
This adjustment will remain in memory
until these steps are repeated and a
new temperature is selected. It will
remain in memory even after a power
failure.
This adjustment will not affect the Broil
or Clean temperatures.
To decide how much to change
the temperature, set the oven
temperature 25 degrees higher
(if foods are undercooked) or
25 degrees lower (if foods are
burning) than the temperature in your
recipe, then bake. The results of this
"test" should give you an idea of how
much the temperature should be
changed.
