To obtain the best cooking results possible, you must operate your oven properly. This
section gives you important information for efficient and safe use of your oven.
Positioning
racks
and pans
For baking/roasting
with one rack, place
the rack so the top of the food will be
centered in the oven.
Rack placement for specific foods:
FOOD
RACK POSITION
Frozen pies, large
roasts, turkeys, angel
food cakes
Lowest level or
2nd level from
bottom
Bundt cakes, most
quick breads, yeast
breads, casseroles,
meats
2nd level from
bottom
Cookies, biscuits,
muffins, cakes,
nonfrozen pies
2nd or 3rd level
from bottom
NOTE: For recommended rack placement
when broiling, see “Broiling rack position
chart” on page 17.
Personal Injury Hazard
l Always
position oven rack(s) in desired
location before turning oven on. Be
sure the rack(s) is level.
l If rack(s) must be moved while oven
is hot, use pot holders or oven mitts
to protect hands.
Failure to follow the above precautions
1 could result in personal injury.
When baking on two racks, arrange racks
on bottom and third level from bottom.
7
For best air circulation
The hot air must circulate around the pans in
the oven for even heat to reach all parts of
the oven. This results in better baking.
l Place the pans so that one is not directly
over the other.
l For best results,
allow 1% to 2 inches
(4-5 cm) of space around each pan and
between pans and oven walls. There must
be a minimum space of 1 inch (2.5 cm).
l Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at
one time.
Use the following as a guide to
determine where to place the pans:
One pan
Place in the center of the oven rack.
Two pans
Place in opposite corners of the oven rack.
Three or four pans
Place in opposite corners on each oven
rack. Stagger pans so no pan is directly over
another.
Using
aluminum
foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers
from pies or casseroles:
l Place the foil on the oven rack below the
rack with the food. Turn up foil edges and
make sure foil is about 1 inch (3 cm) larger
all around than the dish holding the food.
l Do not cover
the entire rack with aluminum foil. It will reduce air circulation and
cause poor cooking results.
l Do not line
oven bottom or entire oven
rack with foil or other liners. Poor baking
will result.
Electrical Shock and Fire Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements.
Failure to follow this precaution could
result in electrical shock or fire hazard
and damage to the elements.

tips
Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling.
They are designed to drain excess liquid
and grease away from the cooking surface
to help prevent spatter, smoke, or fire.
After broiling, remove the broiler pan
from the oven when you remove the food.
Drippings will bake on the pan if you leave
it in the heated oven.
Energy
saving
Fire Hazard
l Place meat the correct distance
from
the element.
.To ensure adequate grease drainage, do not use cookie sheets or
similar pans for broiling. Also,
covering the broiler grid with foil is
not recommended. If foil is used, cut
slits in foil to line up with all openings
in broiler grid. Grease can then drain
away and cool in pan.
Failure to follow the above could result
in fire, burns, or other personal injury.
tips
Although the energy used for cooking is usually
a very small percentage of the total energy used in
the home, cooking energy can be used efficiently.
Here are some tips to help you conserve energy
when using your cooking product:
l Preheat
only when recommended and for the
shortest time possible.
l “Oven
peeking” may cause heat loss,
longer cooking times, and unsatisfactory
baking results. Rely on your timer to keep
track of the cooking time.
l
l
l
Bake cakes, pies, or cookies when oven is
warm. Best time to bake is right after a
meal has been cooked in the oven.
Plan your meals for the most efficient use
of the oven. When using the oven to cook
one food, try to cook the rest of the meal in
it also.
Do not preheat when broiling, roasting, or
cooking items such as casseroles.
17
Using
the electronic
(single/upper
oven)
The electronic MEALTIMER control will turn
the oven on and off at times you set, even
when you are not around.
Delayed time baking/roasting is ideal for
foods which do not require a preheated
oven, such as meats and casseroles. Do
not use delayed time cooking for cakes,
cookies, etc. - undercooking will result.
This section discusses two methods for
starting bakingroasting
now and stopping
automatically later, and three methods for
starting and stopping baking/roasting
automatically. Read this section carefully to
choose which method(s) is best for you.
Before using the electronic
MEALTMER control, make sure the clock
is set to the correct time of day. (See
“Setting the cloclc on page 10.)

To cancel the MEALTIMER”
l
control setting:
Push the Off/Cancel pad to return the display
to the time of day.
To avoid sickness and food waste
when using the MEALTIMERW control:
l Do not let most UNFROZEN
food
stand for more than two hours before

l Do not allow food to remain in oven
for more than two hours after the end
of cooking cycle.
Failure to follow the above could result
in sickness.
NOTE: Do not use foods that will spoil while
waiting for cooking to start. Such foods are:
dishes with milk or eggs, cream soups, and
cooked meats or fish. Also, foods containing
baking powder or yeast will not rise properly
when cooked using delay start.
The oven vent
Hot air and moisture escape from the ovens
through vents. On some models, the upper
oven vent is on the top of the control panel.
The lower oven vent is just above the lower
oven door. These vents are needed for air
circulation. Do not block the vents. Poor
baking/roasting can result.

The Self-Cleaning cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with handcleaning the oven interior. Like the other functions of your oven, the Self-Cleaning cycle is
operated with the easy-to-use electronic controls. Please review the instructions in this
section to keep your oven spotless.
How the cycle
works
The Self-Cleaning cycle uses very high heat to
burn away soil and grease. During the cycle, the
oven gets much hotter than it does for normal
baking or broiling. This high heat breaks up the
soil or grease and burns it away.
Your oven is preset for a 3-hour Self-Cleaning
cycle. However, the cycle time can be adjusted
to the amount of soil in your oven. The cycle
can be set anywhere between 2 and 4 hours.
(See “Setting the controls” on page 29.)
The graph at the right is representative of a
normal, 3-hour Self-Cleaning cycle. Note that
the heating stops when the 3-hour setting is
up, but it takes longer for the oven to cool
enough to unlock.
Before
3
1
lime
you start
Before you start the Self-Cleaning
cycle,
make sure you:
l Hand-clean
the areas shown. They do not
get hot enough during the cleaning cycle
for soil to burn away. Use hot water and
detergent or a soapy steel-wool pad for
cleaning.
NOTE: DO NOT clean, move, or bend the
seal. Poor cleaning, baking, and roasting
may result.
28
START
DO NOT handHand-clean
1,’ Hours

l
l
l
l
Remove the broiler pan grid and any
pots and pans being stored in the oven.
NOTE: You can clean the broiler pan
(without grid) in the oven if you have first
removed most of the soil by hand-cleaning
or in a dishwasher. If most of the soil is not
removed, too much smoking will occur.
The chrome broiler pan grid will discolor if
cleaned in the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This
will help reduce smoke during the
Self-Cleaning cycle.
Remove the oven racks from the oven if
you want them to remain shiny. You can
clean the oven racks in the Self-Cleaning
cycle, but they will become harder to slide.
(See page 33.) If you clean racks in the
Self-Cleaning cycle, place them on the 2nd
and 4th rack guides. (Guides are counted
from bottom to top.)
Heat and odors are normal during the
Self-Cleaning cycle. Keep the kitchen
well-ventilated by opening a window
or by turning on a vent hood or other
kitchen vent during the cycle.
Setting
Burn Hazard
Do not touch the oven during the
Self-Cleaning cycle.
l Do not use commercial
oven cleaners
in your oven.
Failure to follow the above could result
in burns or hazardous fumes.
l
NOTES:
l Do not force
the Lock Lever. You could
bend or break it. The lever is designed to
stay locked until the oven is cool enough to
safely open. Wait until it moves freely.
l Do not block
the vent during the SelfCleaning cycle. Air must move freely for
best cleaning results.
l Do not leave any foil in the oven during
the Self-Cleaning cycle. Foil could burn
or melt and damage the oven surface.
l The oven
light will not work during the
Self-Cleaning cycle.

time shows on the display. The oven will
automatically compute the delay start time
by subtracting the set cleaning time from
the set stop time.
Push the Start/Enter pad. DELAY,
CLEAN, and the time of day will light up
on the display to indicate that the oven is
programmed to start the Seff-Cleaning
cycle at a later time. Skip to Step 6.
5. To delay the start using Start Time:
Push the Clean pad. Push the Delay Start
Time pad. START, TIME, CLEAN, and
“cln” will light up. Use the Hour and Minute
pads to set the desired start time. Push
the “up” (A) or “down” (r) pad(s) until the

Push the Start/Enter pad. DELAY,
CLEAN, and the time of day will light up
on the display to indicate that the oven is
programmed to start the Self-Cleaning
cycle at a later time. After the start time
has been set, the large display will go
back to showing the current time of day.
DELAY and CLEAN will stay on. When the
start time is reached, DELAY will go off,

Special
l
l
l
l
tips
Keep the kitchen well-ventilated during the
Self-Cleaning cycle to help get rid of heat,
odors, and smoke.
After the oven is cool, wipe up any residue
or ash with a damp cloth or sponge. If any
spots remain, clean with a mild abrasive
cleanser or cleaning sponge.
Clean the oven before it gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning a very soiled oven takes longer and
results in more smoke than usual.
If the Self-Cleaning cycle does not get the
oven as clean as you expected, the cycle may
not have been set long enough or you may not
have prepared the oven properly. Set the SelfCleaning cycle longer the next time and handclean areas noted on page 28.
