To Prevent Fire or Smoke Damage
Cooking Safety
• Be sure all packing materials are removed from the appliance before
operating it.
• Keep area around appliance clear and free from combustible materials,
gasoline, and other flammable vapors and materials.
• If appliance is installed near a window, proper precautions should be taken
to prevent curtains from blowing over burners.
• NEVER leave any items on the rangetop. The hot air from the vent may ignite
flammable items and may increase pressure in closed containers which may
cause them to burst.
• Many aerosol-type spray cans are EXPLOSIVE when exposed to heat and
may be highly flammable. Avoid their use or storage near an appliance.
• Many plastics are vulnerable to heat. Keep plastics away from parts of the
appliance that may become warm or hot. DO NOT leave plastic items on
the rangetop as they may melt or soften if left too close to the vent or a
lighted surface burner.
• Combustible items (paper, plastic, etc.) may ignite and metallic items
may become hot and cause burns. DO NOT pour spirits over hot foods.
DO NOT leave oven unsupervised when drying herbs, breads,
mushrooms, etc; fire hazard.
• To eliminate the hazard of reaching over hot surface burners, cabinet
storage should not be provided directly above a unit. If storage is provided,
it should be limited to items which are used infrequently and which are
safely stored in an area subjected to heat from an appliance. Temperatures
may be unsafe for some items, such as volatile liquids, cleaners or
aerosol sprays.
• ALWAYS place a pan on a surface burner before turning it on. Be sure you
know which knob controls which surface burner. Make sure the correct
burner is turned on and that the burner has ignited. When cooking is
completed, turn burner off before removing pan to prevent exposure to
burner flame.
• ALWAYS adjust surface burner flame so that it does not extend beyond the
bottom edge of the pan. An excessive flame is hazardous, wastes energy
and may damage the appliance, pan or cabinets above the appliance. This is
based on safety considerations.
• NEVER leave a surface cooking operation unattended especially
when using a high heat setting or when deep fat frying. Boilovers cause
smoking and greasy spillovers may ignite. Clean up greasy spills as soon as
possible. DO NOT use high heat for extended cooking operations.
• NEVER heat an unopened container on the surface burner or in the oven.
Pressure build-up may cause container to burst resulting in serious personal
injury or damage to the appliance.
• Use dry, sturdy pot-holders. Damp pot-holders may cause burns from steam.
Dishtowels or other substitutes should NEVER be used as potholders
because they can trail across hot surface burners and ignite or get caught on
appliance parts.
• ALWAYS let quantities of hot fat used for deep fat frying cool before
attempting to move or handle.
• DO NOT let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate in or
near the appliance, hood or vent fan. Clean hood frequently to prevent
grease from accumulating on hood or filter. When flaming foods under the
hood, turn the fan off.
• NEVER wear garments made of flammable material or loose fitting or longsleeved apparel while cooking. Clothing may ignite or catch utensil handles.
• ALWAYS place oven racks in the desired positions while oven is cool. Slide
oven rack out to add or remove food, using dry, sturdy potholders. ALWAYS
avoid reaching into the oven to add or remove food. If a rack must be
moved while hot, use a dry potholder.
• ALWAYS turn the oven off at the end of cooking.
• Use care when opening the oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before
moving or replacing food.
In Case of Fire
Turn off appliance and ventilating hood to avoid spreading the flame.
Extinguish flame, then turn on hood to remove smoke and odor.
• Cooktop: Smother fire or flame in a pan with a lid or cookie sheet.
• NEVER pick up or move a flaming pan.
• Oven: Smother fire or flame by closing the oven door.
DO NOT use water on grease fires. Use baking soda, a dry chemical or
foam-type extinguisher to smother fire or flame.
Child Safety
• NEVER leave children alone or unsupervised near the appliance when it is in
use or is still hot.
• NEVER allow children to sit or stand on any part of the appliance as they
could be injured or burned.
• DO NOT store items of interest to children over the unit. Children climbing
to reach items could be seriously injured.
• Children must be taught that the appliance and utensils in it can be hot.

Cooking Safety (cont.)
Utensil Safety (cont.)
• NEVER use aluminum foil to cover oven racks or oven bottom. This could
result in risk of electric shock, fire, or damage to the appliance. Use foil only
as directed in this guide.
• PREPARED FOOD WARNING: Follow food manufacturer's instructions. If a
plastic frozen food container and/or its cover distorts, warps, or is otherwise
damaged during cooking, immediately discard the food and its container. The
food could be contaminated.
• If you are “flaming” liquor or other spirits under an exhaust, TURN THE
FAN OFF. The draft could cause the flames to spread out of control.
• Once the unit has been installed as outlined in the Installation
Instructions, it is important that the fresh air supply is not obstructed.
The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat and
moisture in the room in which it is installed. Ensure that the kitchen is
well-ventilated. Keep natural venting holes open or install a mechanical
ventilation device. Prolonged or intensive use of the appliance may call
for additional (such as opening a window) or more effective ventilation
(such as increasing the level of a mechanical ventilation if present).
• This appliance has been tested for safe performance using conventional
cookware. DO NOT use any devices or accessories that are not specifically
recommended in this guide. DO NOT use eyelid covers for the surface units,
stovetop grills, or add-on oven convection systems. The use of devices or
accessories that are not expressly recommended in this manual can create
serious safety hazards, result in performance problems, and reduce the life
of the components of the appliance.
• The flame of the burner should be adjusted to just cover the bottom of
the pan or pot. Excessive burner setting may cause scorching of
adjacent counter-top surfaces, as well as the outside of the utensil. This
is based on safety considerations.
Utensil Safety
• Use pans with flat bottoms and handles that are easily grasped and stay
cool. Avoid using unstable, warped, easily tipped or loose-handled pans.
Also avoid using pans, especially small pans, with heavy handles as they
could be unstable and easily tip. Pans that are heavy to move when filled
with food may also be hazardous.
• Be sure utensil is large enough to properly contain food and avoid boilovers.
Pan size is particularly important in deep fat frying. Be sure pan will
accommodate the volume of food that is to be added as well as the bubble
action of fat.
• To minimize burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage due to
unintentional contact with the utensil, DO NOT extend handles over
adjacent surface burners. ALWAYS turn pan handles toward the side or back
of the appliance, not out into the room where they are easily hit or reached
by small children.
• NEVER let a pan boil dry as this could damage the utensil and the
appliance.
• Follow the manufacturer's directions when using oven cooking bags.
• Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic or glazed utensils are
suitable for rangetop surface or oven usage without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature. Follow manufacturer's instructions when
using glass.
8
Heating Elements
• NEVER touch oven heating elements, areas near elements, or interior
surfaces of oven.
• Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near
elements and interior surfaces of an oven may become hot enough to cause
burns.
• During and after use, DO NOT touch or let clothing or other flammable
materials contact heating elements, areas near elements, or interior surfaces
of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool.
Cleaning Safety
• Turn off all controls and wait for appliance parts to cool before touching or
cleaning them. DO NOT touch the burner grates or surrounding areas until
they have had sufficient time to cool.
• Clean appliance with caution. Use care to avoid steam burns if a wet sponge
or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot surface. Some cleaners can produce
noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
Self-Clean Oven
• Clean only parts listed in this guide. DO NOT clean door gasket. The door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage,
or move the gasket. DO NOT use oven cleaners of any kind in or around any
part of the self-clean oven.
• Before self-cleaning the oven, remove broiler pan, oven racks and other
utensils and wipe up excessive spillovers to prevent excessive smoke,
flare-ups or flaming.
• This range features a cooling fan which operates automatically during a
clean cycle. If the fan does not turn on, cancel the clean operation and
contact an authorized servicer.
• It is normal for the rangetop cooking surface of the range to become hot
during a self-clean cycle. Therefore, touching the rangetop cooking surface
during a clean cycle should be avoided.

WARNING
This range features a self-cleaning cycle. During this cycle, the oven
reaches elevated temperatures in order to burn off soil and deposits. A
powder ash residue is left in the bottom of the oven after completion of
the self-clean cycle.
Note: DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners inside the oven. Use of
these cleaners can produce hazardous fumes or can damage the
porcelain finishes. DO NOT line the oven with aluminum foil or other
materials. These items can melt or burn during a self-clean cycle,
causing permanent damage to the oven.
CAUTION
DO NOT touch the exterior portions of the oven after
self-cleaning cycle has begun, since some parts become
extremely hot to the touch!
During the first few times the self-cleaning feature is used, there may
be some odor and smoking from the “curing” of the binder in the highdensity insulation used in the oven. When the insulation is thoroughly
cured, this odor will disappear. During subsequent self-cleaning
cycles, you may sense an odor characteristic of high temperatures.
KEEP THE KITCHEN WELL-VENTED DURING THE
SELF-CLEAN CYCLE.
CAUTION
You must carefully check the food during the dehydration process to
ensure that it does not catch fire.
All products are wiped clean with solvents at the factory to remove any
visible signs of dirt, oil, and grease which may have remained from the
manufacturing process. Before starting to cook, clean the range
thoroughly with hot, soapy water. There may be some burn off and
odors on first use of the appliance—this is normal.
Oven
Important! Before first use, wipe interior with soapy water and dry
thoroughly. Then set the oven selector to bake, the thermostat to
450°F, and operate for an hour.
All models include:
• A broad range of baking and broiling modes—up to eight cooking
modes in all—to make even your most challenging baking projects

Oven Functions and Settings
Surface Operation
BAKE (Two-Element Bake)
Lighting Burners
Use this setting for baking, roasting, and casseroles.
All burners are ignited by electric ignition. There
are no open-flame, “standing” pilots.
CONV BAKE (Convection Bake)
Use this setting to bake and roast foods at the same time with minimal
taste transfer.
TRU CONV (TruConvec™)
Product Controls
Use this bake setting for multi-rack baking for breads, cakes, cookies
(up to 6 racks of cookies at once).
CONV ROAST (Convection Roast)
Use this setting for roasting whole turkeys, whole chickens, hams, etc.
Surface Burners-Automatic Reignition
To light the surface burners, push and turn the
appropriate control knob counter clockwise to any position. This control is
both a gas valve and an electric switch. Burners will ignite at any “ON”
position with the automatic re-ignition system. If the flame goes out for
any reason, the burners will automatically reignite if the gas is still flowing.
When gas is permitted to flow to the burners, the electric igniters start
sparking. On all surface igniters you should hear a “clicking” sound. If you
do not, turn off the control and check that the unit is plugged in and that
the fuse or circuit breaker is not blown or tripped.
CONV BROIL (Convection Broil)
MED BROIL
Vari-Simmer™
Use this setting for broiling white meats such as chicken or meats
greater than 1” thick that would be over-browned in high broil.
Simmering is a cooking technique in which foods are cooked in hot
liquids kept at or just barely below the boiling point of water. Simmering
ensures gentler treatment than boiling to prevent food from toughening
and/or breaking up. The size of the pan and the volume of food can have
a significant effect on how high or low a flame is needed for simmering.
For this reason, Viking range and rangetop burners are engineered with a
Vari-Simmer setting. The Vari-Simmer setting is not just one simmer
setting, but provides a variable range of simmer settings. This variable
range of simmer settings allows you to adjust the flame height to achieve
the best simmer depending on the type and quantity of food being
simmered. It is this ability that makes the Vari-Simmer setting the most
accurate and trustworthy simmer on the market.
HI BROIL
LOW BROIL
Use this setting for delicate broiling such as meringue.
SELF CLEAN
Use this function to clean oven.
Convection Dehydration (TRU CONV)
Use this function to dehydrate fruits and vegetables.
Convection Defrost (TRU CONV)
TruPower Plus™ Burner (where applicable)
Use this function to defrost foods.
Proof (Left oven on 48”W. models)
Use this setting to allow yeast dough to rise.
Note: For more information on oven functions see “Operation”
section.
16
Certain model ranges are equipped with a TruPower Plus 18,500 BTU
burner in the front right burner position. This burner is designed to
provide extra high heat output, especially when using large pans, and
should be used for boiling large quantities or if you need to bring
something to a boild quickly. While the TruPower Plus burner has the
extra power needed to bring large quantities of liquid to a boil rapidly, it
is also able to be turned down low enough to provide a very low and
delicate simmer making this burner the most versatile burner on the
market.
17
Operation
Use this setting for broiling dark meats at 1” thickness or less where
rare or medium doneness is desired.
Within a few moments, enough gas will have traveled to the burner to
light. When the burner lights, turn the burner control to any position to
adjust the flame size. Setting the proper flame height for the desired
cooking process and selecting the correct cooking vessel will result in
superior cooking performance, while also saving time and energy.
Use this setting to broil thick cuts of meat.

Surface Cooking Tips
Griddle/Simmer Plate (on applicable models)
• Use low or medium flame heights when cooking in vessels that are
poor conductors of heat, such as glass, ceramic, and cast-iron.
Reduce the flame height until it covers approximately 1/3 of the
cooking vessel diameter. This will ensure more even heating within
the cooking vessel and reduce the likelihood of burning or scorching
the food.
• Reduce the flame if it is extending beyond the bottom of the
cooking vessel. A flame that extends along the sides of the vessel is
potentially dangerous, heats the utensil handle and kitchen instead
of the food, and wastes energy.
• Reduce the flame height to the minimum level necessary to perform
the desired cooking process. Remember that food cooks just as
quickly at a gentle boil as it does at a rolling boil. Maintaining a
higher boil than is necessary wastes energy, cooks away moisture,
and causes a loss in food flavor and nutrient level.
• The minimum pot or pan (vessel) diameter recommended is 6”
(15 cm). Use of pots or pans as small as 4” (10 cm) is possible but
not recommended.
The optional 15,000 BTU griddle is constructed of machined steel with a
blanchard finish and is uniquely designed to offer excellent cooking
performance as well as easy clean up. The griddle is equipped with an
electronic thermostat to maintain an even temperature across the
griddle once the desired temperature has been set. The griddle has a
power “ON” indicator light which glows when the griddle thermostat
has been turned on. This will cycle on and off as needed to indicate the
thermostat is maintaining the selected temperature. Before the griddle is
used it is important to season the griddle. This seasoning process will
change the appearance of the griddle plate. However, it will also prevent
food from sticking and protect the surface from moisture.

• Scrub the griddle plate with a mixture of one quart warm water and
1/4 cup white vinegar, using a blue Scotch-Brite™ pad. Dry thoroughly.
• Wash griddle with warm, soapy water. Rinse off and dry thoroughly.
• Season griddle by thinly coating the surface with approximately 1⁄2
to 1 teaspoon unsalted vegetable oil. Apply to entire griddle using a
paper towel or clean cloth. Let oil sit on griddle for approximately 1
hour and then wipe with a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb any
residual oil. The griddle is now ready to be used.
Griddle/Simmer Plate Operation
• Turn the griddle control knob counterclockwise to the desired
temperature setting. The power “ON” indicator light will glow
indicating the griddle thermostat is on.
• The double griddle has two thermostat control knobs which
control separate burners located beneath
Griddle Assembly
the griddle.
• When the griddle has reached the desired

temperature, the power “ON” indicator
light will turn off indicating the griddle is
preheated to the selected temperature.
Griddle
• Use liquid cooking oil or butter for eggs,
pancakes, French toast, fish and
sandwiches to prevent sticking.
• Routinely scrape loose food particles with
a metal spatula during cooking to make
the cleanup easier and to avoid the particles mixing with the food.
• To turn the griddle off, turn the thermostat knob clockwise to the
“OFF” position.
• ALWAYS turn to the“OFF” position when not in use and lower the
heat between cooking loads.

Char-Grill (on applicable models)
• It is not necessary to wash the griddle after every use. When light
cooking is performed and AFTER the griddle has cooled, simply
wipe down the surface with a clean cloth or paper towel. The oils in
the food which cooked on the griddle surface will naturally season
the griddle providing a “natural” non-stick surface.
• After heavy cooking is completed and the griddle is still warm
enough to create steam, pour a small amount of club soda at room
temperature directly on the griddle. Using a metal spatula, pull oils
and food particles toward the trough in front. Wipe entire surface
with a paper towel. Follow with the seasoning process of applying oil.
• Keeping the griddle well seasoned will prevent the griddle from
developing surface rust. If the griddle is not used for a period of
time, it must be re-seasoned. The griddle must be re-seasoned each
time after it is washed.
• Non-stick cooking spray is not recommended as it contains a high
water content that has a tendency to burn quickly.
• Corn oil is not recommended as it has a high sugar level. It will
caramelize and burn on the surface making it very difficult to remove.
• After using the griddle, always remove the grease trough located in
the front. Simply pull the trough towards you and lift out. Be sure to
allow all surfaces to cool before removing the grease trough. The
trough or tray trap needs to be cleaned after each use. A fire hazard
may occur if grease is accumulated in the trough.
• Note - it is normal for the griddle to darken over time. This is the sign
of a well seasoned griddle.
• Important: Never flood a hot griddle with cold water. This thermal
shock promotes griddle warping and can cause the griddle to crack if
continued over a period of time.
• For heavy duty cleaning, Viking offers a Griddle Cleaning Kit (model
#GCK). This fast and effective commercial grade cleaning system will
clean your griddle in a matter of minutes. To order, contact your local
Viking dealer or order on the Viking website at vikingrange.com.
The optional 18,000 BTU char-grill is equipped with a single piece, heavyduty porcelainized cast-iron grill grate for easy movement of grilling
items. Beneath the grill grate are two slotted porcelainized flavor
generator plates which are designed to catch drippings and circulate a
smoke flavor back into the food. Beneath the flavor generator plates is a
two piece drip pan which catches any drippings that might pass beyond
the flavor generator plates. This unique grilling system is designed to
provide outdoor quality grilling indoors.

Char-Grill Assembly
Before using the char-grill, you will need to follow these steps to properly
assemble the char-grill.
• Remove the two flavor generator plates and grill grate from the
cardboard packaging.
• Position the flavor generator plates so that the tab on each plate is
inserted in the right, rear hole and left, front hole on the drip pans.
(See char-grill assembly section on following pages.)
• After the flavor generator plates are properly located, place the grill
grate on top of the flavor generator plates. After this, the char-grill is
assembled and ready to use.
Char-Grill Operation
• Turn the overhead ventilation on prior to turning the grill on.
• Turn the grill knob counterclockwise to HI.
• Always preheat the grill for 5-10 minutes before placing food on the
grill grate.
• Place food items on the grill, cook as desired.
• To turn the grill off, turn the grill knob clockwise to the OFF position.
Char-Grill Cooking Tips
• When grilling chicken, roasts, well-done steaks or chops and thick
pieces of meat, sear on HI. Then, reduce the heat setting to prevent
excessive flare-up. This will allow the food to cook through without
burning the outside.
• After steaks, chops, or hamburgers have been allowed to sear for
approximately one minute, you may slide a spatula under the meat
and turn it approximately 90 degrees so that a waffle pattern will be
seared onto the food.
• Use a metal spatula instead of tongs or a fork to turn the meat. A
spatula will not puncture the meat allowing juices to escape.
• Turn the meat over only once. Juices are lost when steaks, chops or
hamburgers are turned several times. The best time to turn the meat
is after the juices have begun to bubble to the surface.

Char-Grill Assembly (cont.)
• To test for doneness, make a small slash in the center of the meat,
not the edge. This will prevent loss of juices.
• Occasionally there may be flare-ups or flames above the grill due to
drops of fat falling on the flavor generator plates. It is normal to have
some flare-up during grilling. Use a long handled spatula to move
food to another area until the flames subside.
• For ease of cleaning, leave the char-grill on for 10 minutes when
finished grilling. This will help make cleanup easier once the char-grill
has cooled down.
Char-Grill Disassembly for Cleaning
Follow these steps to disassemble the char-grill for cleaning. Make sure
the char-grill is completely cool before attempting to disassemble for
cleaning.

•
Remove the char-grill grate.
Remove the flavor-generator plates.
Remove the drip pan. Note that the drip pan is a two-piece drip pan.
Located beneath the burner is the drip tray. Under normal grilling
circumstances very little if any grease will accumulate in the drip tray.
If any grease has accumulated in the drip tray, simply wipe out with a
paper towel or damp cloth.

• Char-grill grates:
o May be cleaned immediately after cooking is complete and before
turning off the flame. Before cleaning the grill, turn the flame
down to a lower setting such as “MED” or “LOW”. Use a soft
bristle brush to scrub the grill grate. Dip the brush frequently into
a bowl of water. Steam is created as the water contacts the hot
grate. The steam assists the cleaning process by softening the
food particles.
o For a thorough cleaning of the grill grate, use grill cleaner
according to manufacturer’s directions and then soak 15-20
minutes in a hot water and mild detergent solution. After soaking,
scrub with a blue Scotch-Brite™ pad. DO NOT use a steel wool
pad or abrasive cleaner, for risk of damaging the porcelain finish.
Dry thoroughly.
• Flavor generator plates and drip pan:
o Scrape off all burned on debris. The flavor generator plates and
drip pan are dishwasher safe. If you choose to not wash these
components in the dishwasher, then simply soak for 15-20 minutes
in a hot water and mild detergent solution. After soaking, scrub
with a blue Scotch-Brite™ pad.

Cooking Vessels
Preheat
Each cook has his or her own preference for the particular cooking vessels
that are most appropriate for the type of cooking being done. Any and
all cooking vessels are suitable for use in the range and it is not necessary
to replace your present domestic vessels with commercial cookware. This
is a matter of personal choice. As with any cookware, yours should be in
good condition and free from excessive dents on the bottom to provide
maximum performance and convenience.
For best results, it is extremely
important that you preheat your
oven to the desired cooking
temperature before placing food
OV
items in the oven to begin cooking. In
FU EN
NC
many cooking modes, partial power from the
TIO
N
broiler is used to bring the oven to the preheat
OV
temperature. Therefore, placing food items in the
TE EN
MP
ER
oven during the preheat mode is not recommended.
AT

E
The Viking Rapid Ready™ Preheat System is engineered so that
the oven is brought to the desired set temperature in a manner which
will provide the optimum cooking environment based on the selected
cooking mode in the shortest possible time.
Note: When using big pots and/or high flames, it is recommended to use
the front burners. There is more room in the front and potential cleanup
at rear of appliance due to staining or discoloration will be minimized.

Also, preheat time can vary based on some external factors such as
room temperature and power supply. A significantly colder room
temperature or a power supply less than 240 VAC can lengthen the
time it takes for the oven to reach the desired set temperature.
Concealed bake element
Rack Positions
Each oven is equipped with three tilt-proof racks. All ovens have six
rack positions. Position 6 is the farthest from the oven bottom. Position
1 is the closest to the oven bottom. The racks can be easily removed
and arranged at various levels. For best results with conventional
baking, DO NOT use more than one rack at a time. It is also
recommended, when using two racks, to bake with the racks in
positions 2 and 4 or positions 3 and 5.

For instance, the preheat mode for TruConvec™ is designed to be
brought up to the set point temperature in a different manner than the
preheat mode for conventional bake. This is because TruConvec is
designed for multi-rack baking. So it is extremely critical that all rack
positions have reached the desired cooking temperature. As a result, it
is normal for oven to take slightly longer for the oven to preheat to
350°F in TruConvec mode when compared to the amount of time it
takes to preheat the oven cavity to 350°F in conventional bake mode.

Conventional and Convection Cooking
Conventional and Convection Cooking (cont.)
• Some recipes, especially those that are homemade, may require
adjustment and testing when converting from standard to
convection modes. If unsure how to convert a recipe, begin by
preparing the recipe in conventional bake. After achieving
acceptable results, follow the convection guidelines listed for the
similar food type. If the food is not prepared to your satisfaction
during this first convection trial, adjust only one recipe variable at a
time (cooking time, rack position, or temperature) and repeat the
convection test. Continue adjusting one recipe variable at a time
until satisfactory results are achieved.
Because of variations in food density, surface texture and consistency,
some foods may be prepared more successfully using the conventional
bake setting. For this reason, conventional baking is recommended
when preparing baked goods such as custard. The user may find other
foods that are also prepared more consistently in conventional bake.
This is perfectly normal. Convection cooking is a cooking technique
which utilizes fan forced air to circulate heat throughout the entire
oven creating the optimum cooking environment. Cooking with
convection is intended when performing multi-rack baking and for
baking heavier foods. Below are tips which will allow you to get the
best results out of your oven when cooking with convection.
• When using large (15" x 13") flat pans or trays that cover most of
the rack, rack positions 2 or 3 produce the best results.
• When baking on more than one rack, it is recommended to use one
of the convection modes and the 2nd and 4th position or the 3rd
and 5th position for more even baking. When baking on three racks,
use any combination of positions 2, 3, 4, and 5 for more consistent
results.
• Stagger pans in opposite directions when two racks and several pans
are used in conventional bake. If possible, no pan should be directly
above another.
• Allow 1 to 2 inches of air space around all sides of each pan for even
air circulation.

Pan Placement Tips
• As a general rule, to convert conventional recipes to convection
recipes, reduce the temperature by 25°F (-3.9°C) and the cooking
time by approximately 10 to 15%.
• Cooking times for standard baking and convection baking will be the
same. However, if using convection to cook a single item or smaller
load, then it is possible to have 10-15% reduction in cooking time.
(Remember convection cooking is designed for multi-rack baking or
cooking large loads.)
• If cooking items which require longer than 45 minutes, then it is
possible to see a 10-15% reduction in cooking time. This is
especially true for large items cooked in the convection roast
function.
• A major benefit of convection cooking is the ability to prepare foods
in quantity. The uniform air circulation makes this possible. Foods
that can be prepared on two of three racks at the same time include:
pizza, cakes, cookies, biscuits, muffins, rolls, and frozen convenience
foods.
• For three-rack baking, use any combination of rack positions 2, 3, 4,
and 5. For two-rack baking, use rack positions 2 and 4 or positions 3
and 5. Remember that the racks are numbered from bottom to top.
See “Oven Features” illustration on page 24.
• Items cooked in a convection function can be easily over-baked. This
being the case, it is usually a good idea to pull items out of the oven
just before they seem to be done. Items will continue to cook right
after they are set out of the oven.
Baking

BAKE (Two-Element Bake)
Full power heat is radiated
from the bake element in the
bottom of the oven cavity and
supplemental heat is radiated
from the broil element. This
function is recommended for
single rack baking. Many
cookbooks contain recipes to
be cooked in the conventional
two-element bake
manner. Conventional baking/
roasting is particularly suitable for dishes that require a high
temperature. Use this setting for baking, roasting, and casseroles.
The bottom element operates
at full power, and the top broil
element operates at
supplemental power. The
heated air is circulated by the
motorized fan in the rear of the
oven providing a more even
heat distribution. This even
convection bake
circulation of air equalizes the
temperature throughout the oven cavity and eliminates the hot and
cold spots found in conventional ovens. A major benefit of convection
baking is the ability to prepare food in quantity using multiple racks—
a feature not possible in a standard oven.
When roasting using this setting, cool air is quickly replaced, searing
meats on the outside and retaining more juices and natural flavor on
the inside with less shrinkage. With this heating method, foods can be
baked and roasted at the same time with minimal taste transfer, even
when different dishes are involved, such as cakes, fish or meat. The hot
air system is especially economical when thawing frozen food. Use this
setting for baking and roasting.
30
The rear element only operates at
full power. There is no direct heat
from the bottom or top elements.
The motorized fan in the rear of
the oven circulates air in the oven
cavity for even heating. Use this
setting for foods that require
gentle cooking such as pastries,
souffles, yeast breads, quick
TruConvec™
breads and cakes. Breads, cookies,
and other baked goods come out evenly textured with golden crusts.
No special bakeware is required. Use this function for single rack
baking, multiple rack baking, roasting, and preparation of complete
meals. This setting is also recommended when baking large quantities
of baked goods at one time.
Baking Tips
• Make sure the oven racks are in the desired positions before you
turn the oven on.
• DO NOT open the oven door frequently during baking. If you must
open the door, the best time is during the last quarter of the baking
time.
• Bake to shortest time suggested and check for doneness before
adding more time. For baked goods, a stainless steel knife placed in
the center of the product should come clean when done.
• Use the pan size and type recommended by the recipe to ensure
best results. Cakes, quick breads, muffins, and cookies should be
baked in shiny, reflective pans for light, golden crusts. Avoid the use
of old, darkened pans. Warped, dented, stainless steel and tincoated pans heat unevenly and will not give uniform baking results.
Proofing
This setting is designed for allowing yeast dough to rise to a
temperature between 85°F (29°C) and 100°F ( 38°C). Yeast doughs rise
or “proof” best when the temperature is between 85°F (29°C) and 100°F
(38°C). To make sure the dough is warm enough, cover the bowl loosely
with plastic wrap and/or cloth towel. Turn the oven function selector to
“PROOF”. Turn Temperature control until the oven light comes on
(typically around 200 degrees on the knob setting). Note that the Proof
function is designed to keep the oven between 85°F and 100°F
regardless of what temperature the knob is set at. Place the bowl on the
center rack of the oven and close door. When you think the dough has
doubled in size, lightly poke 2 fingers about 1/2” (1.3 cm) into the
dough. If the indentation remains, the dough has risen enough.

Solving Baking Problems
Roasting
Baking problems can occur for many reasons. Check the chart below for
the causes and remedies for the most common problems. It is important
to remember that the temperature setting and cooking times you are
accustomed to using with your previous oven may vary slightly from
those required with this oven. If you find this to be true, it is necessary
for you to adjust your recipes and cooking times accordingly.

*Note: This function uses a high-speed convection fan for optimum
cooking performance. Some noise may be noticed from this high fan
speed. This is normal.
Note: You can also roast foods using bake settings. See the “Baking”
section for additional information.
Roasting Tips
ALWAYS use the broiler pan and grid supplied with each oven. The
hot air must be allowed to circulate around the item being roasted.
DO NOT cover what is being roasted. Convection roasting seals in
juices quickly for a moist, tender product. Poultry will have a light,
crispy skin and meats will be browned, not dry or burned. Cook meats
and poultry directly from the refrigerator. There is no need for meat or
poultry to stand at room temperature.
• As a general rule, to convert conventional recipes to convection
recipes, reduce the temperature by 25°F (-3.9°C) and the cooking
time by approximately 10 to 15%.
• ALWAYS roast meats fat side up in a shallow pan using a roasting
rack. No basting is required when the fat side is up. DO NOT add
water to the pan as this will cause a steamed effect. Roasting is a dry
heat process.
• Poultry should be placed breast side up on a rack in a shallow pan.
Brush poultry with melted butter, margarine, or oil before and during
roasting.
• For convection roasting, DO NOT use pans with tall sides as this will
interfere with the circulation of heated air over the food.
• If using a cooking bag, foil tent, or other cover, use the conventional
bake setting rather than either convection setting.

Common Baking Problems/Remedies
The convection element runs in
conjunction with the inner and
outer broil elements. The
reversible convection fan runs at
a higher speed in each
direction. This transfer of heat
(mainly from the convection
element) seals moisture inside
convection roast
of large roasts. A time savings is
gained over existing, single fan convection roast modes. Use this
setting for whole turkeys, whole chickens, hams, etc.

• When using a meat thermometer, insert the probe halfway into the
center of the thickest portion of the meat. (For poultry insert the
thermometer probe between the body and leg into the thickest part
of the inner thigh.) The tip of the probe should not touch bone,
fat, or gristle to ensure an accurate reading. Check the meat
temperature halfway through the recommended roasting time. After
reading the thermometer once, insert it 1⁄2 inch (1.3 cm) further into
the meat, then take a second reading. If the second temperature
registers below the first, continue cooking the meat.
• Roasting times ALWAYS vary according to the size, shape and quality
of meats and poultry. Less tender cuts of meat are best prepared in
the conventional bake setting and may require moist cooking
techniques. Remove roasted meats from the oven when the
thermometer registers 5°F (-15°C) to 10˚ F (-12°C) lower than the
desired doneness. The meat will continue to cook after removal from
the oven. Allow roasts to stand 15 to 20 minutes after roasting in
order to make carving easier.

The top element operates at full
power. This function is exactly
the same as regular broiling with
the additional benefit of air
circulation by the motorized fan
in the rear of the oven. Smoke is
reduced since the airflow also
reduces peak temperatures on
the food. Use this setting for
broiling thick cuts of meats.
convection broil
Heat radiates from both broil
elements, located in the top of
the oven cavity, at full power.
The distance between the foods
and the broil elements
determines broiling speed. For
fast broiling, food may be as
close as 2 inches (5 cm) to the
broil element or on the top rack.
high broil
Fast broiling is best for meats
where rare to medium doneness is desired. Use this setting for broiling
small and average cuts of meat.
MED BROIL
Inner and outer broil elements
pulse on and off to produce less
heat for slow broiling. Allow
about 4 inches (10 cm) between
the top surface of the food and
the broil element. Slow broiling
is best for chicken and ham in
order to broil food without overbrowning it. Use this setting for
broiling small and average cuts
of meat.
medium broil

Operation
Food
CONV BROIL*
(Convection Broil)
Broiling
LOW BROIL
Broiling Tips
This mode uses only a fraction
of the available power to the
inner broil element for delicate
top-browning. The inner broil
element is on for only part of
the time. Use this setting to
gently brown meringue on racks
3 or 4 in 3-4 minutes.
Conventional broiling (LOW, MED or HI BROIL) is most successful for
cuts of meat 1-2 inches thick and is also more suitable for flat pieces of
meat. Convection broiling has the advantage of broiling food slightly
quicker than conventional. Convection broiling of meats produces
better results, especially for thick cuts. The meat sears on the outside
and retains more juices and natural flavor inside with less shrinkage.
• ALWAYS use a broiler pan and grid for broiling. They are designed
to provide drainage of excess liquid and fat away from the cooking
surface to help prevent splatter, smoke, and fire.
• To keep meat from curling, slit fatty edge.
• Brush chicken and fish with butter several times as they broil to
prevent drying out. To prevent sticking, lightly grease broiler tray.
• Broil on first side for slightly more than half the recommended time,
season, and turn. Season second side just before removing.
• ALWAYS pull rack out to stop position before turning or removing
food.
• Use tongs or a spatula to turn meats. NEVER pierce meat with a
fork, as this allows the juices to escape.
• Remove the broiler pan from the oven when you remove the food.
Drippings will bake onto the pan if it is left in the heated oven after
broiling. While pan is hot, place damp paper towel over grid. Drizzle
with liquid dishwashing detergent and pour water over grid. This will
make cleaning of the pan easier, or the broiler pan can be lined with
aluminum foil to make cleaning easier. Be sure the foil extends up
the side of the pan. Although it is not recommended, the grid can
also be covered with foil. Be sure to slit openings to conform with
the openings in the grid so melted fat can drain through to prevent
spattering, smoking, or the possibility of grease fire.
To Use Broil or Convection Broil
Rack Positions for Broiling
1. Arrange the oven rack in the desired position before turning
broiler on.
Note: Position 6 is the closest to the broiler and position 1 is the
closest to the oven bottom.
low broil
Broiling Instructions
Operation
Broiling is a dry-heat cooking method using direct or radiant heat.
It is used for small, individualized cuts such as steaks, chops, and
patties. Broiling speed is determined by the distance between the
food and the broil element. Choose the rack position based on desired
results.
2. Center the food on cold broiler pan and grid supplied with your
oven. Place broiler pan in oven.
3. Set the oven function selector to desired broiling function and the
temperature control knob to “Broil”.
4. Close the door. There is not a detent to hold the door in the open
broil stop position. With open door broiling the broil element does
not cycle on and off. With closed door broiling the broil element
might cycle on and off if an extended broiling time is required. A
built-in smoke "eliminator" in the top of the oven helps reduce
smoke and odors.

Product Care
Several different finishes have been used in your oven.
Your oven features a self-clean cycle for the oven interior. See the
“Self-Clean Cycle” section for complete instructions. NEVER USE
AMMONIA, STEEL WOOL PADS OR ABRASIVE CLOTHS, CLEANSERS,
OVEN CLEANERS, OR ABRASIVE POWDERS. THEY CAN
PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR OVEN.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Self-Clean Cycle
Power Failure
This oven features an automatic pyrolytic self-cleaning cycle. During
this cycle, the oven reaches elevated temperatures in order to burn-off
soil and deposits. An integral smoke eliminator helps reduce odors
associated with the soil burn-off. A powder ash residue is left in the
bottom of the oven after completion of the self-clean cycle. The door
latch is automatically activated after selecting the self-clean setting.
The latch ensures that the door cannot be opened while the oven
interior is at clean temperatures.
If power failure occurs, the electric igniters will not work. No attempt
should be made to operate the appliance during a power failure. Make
sure the oven control is in the “OFF” position.
WARNING
POWER FAILURE WARNING
Due to safety considerations and the possibility of personal injury in
attempting to light and extinguish the burner, the grill should, not under
any circumstances, be used during a power failure. The grill burner
control should always remain in the “OFF” position during a power failure.
Momentary power failure can occur unnoticed. The range is affected only
when the power is interrupted. When it comes back on, the range will
function properly without any adjustments. A “brown-out” may or may
not affect range operation, depending on how severe the power loss is.
If the range is in the self-clean cycle when the power failure occurs, wait
until power is restored and allow door to unlock automatically. Turn all
controls off and restart self-clean cycle again, according to instructions.
DANGER
Before starting the Self-Clean cycle:
WARNING
1. Remove the oven racks, and any other items/utensils from the oven.
The high heat generated during the cleaning cycle can discolor,
warp, and damage these items. DO NOT use foil or liners in the
oven. During the self-clean cycle, foil can burn or melt and damage
the oven surface.
2. Wipe off any large spills from the oven bottom and sides. NEVER
use oven cleaners inside a self-cleaning oven or on raised portions
of the door.
3. Some areas of the oven must be cleaned by hand before the cycle
begins. Soils in these areas will be baked on and very difficult to
clean if not removed first. Clean the door up to the gasket, the
door frame, and up to 2 inches inside the frame with detergent and
hot water. Rinse thoroughly and dry.

Product Care
DO NOT touch the exterior portions of the oven after self-cleaning
cycle has begun, since some parts become extremely hot to the touch!
During the first few times the self-cleaning feature is used, there may
be some odor and smoking from the curing of the binder in the highdensity insulation used in the oven. When the insulation is thoroughly
cured, this odor will disappear. During subsequent self-cleaning
cycles, you may sense an odor characteristic of high temperatures.
Keep the kitchen well-vented during the self-cleaning cycle.
Self-Clean Cycle
To start the Self-Clean cycle:
1. Close the door completely.
2. Turn the oven selector knob clockwise to the “SELF CLEAN” mode.
3. Turn the temperature control knob past the clean setting until the
knob stops. At this time, the clean indicator light will come on.
Within 30 seconds the automatic door latch engages and the oven
indicator light comes on. The oven indicator light will remain on
until the oven reaches the self-clean temperature and will then cycle
on and off during the self-clean cycle. When the oven reaches the
elevated temperature needed for self-clean, the door lock indicator
light comes on.
4. The door lock indicator light will remain on until the self-clean is
completed or interrupted and the oven temperature drops to a safe
temperature. A complete cycle is approximately 3-1/2 hours with an
additional 30 minutes needed for the oven to cool down enough
for the door latch to disengage.
Note: A fan noise will be heard during the self-clean cycle and will
continue to run for the 3-1/2 hour duration of the self-clean cycle.
Note: On griddle model ranges, the griddle/simmer plate will not
function during the self-clean cycle.
5. When the cycle is completed, turn both the oven selector and
temperature control knob to the “OFF” position. When the oven
has completely cooled, open door and remove any ash from the
oven surfaces with a damp cloth.
To stop the Self-Clean cycle:
