Oven Vent Location
The oven is vented as shown below. When the oven is on,
warm air is released through the vent. This venting is
necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good
baking results. Do not block oven vent. Never close off the
openings with aluminium foil or any other material. Steam or
moisture may appear near the oven vent. This is normal.

Types of oven racks
Oven Rack Descriptions
Flat oven racks (or the flat handle oven rack) may be
used for most cooking needs and may be placed in
most oven rack positions.
The offset oven rack (some models) provides addi-
tional step down positions from the standard flat rack
design. The offset design positions the base of the rack
about ½ of a rack position lower than the flat rack and
may be used in most oven rack positions.
The fully extendable oven glide rack allows you to
effortlessly extend your food away from the oven.
Removing, replacing, and arranging flat or offset
To arrange - Always arrange the oven racks when the oven
is cool (prior to operating the oven).
To remove - Pull the oven rack straight forward until it
reaches the stop position. Lift up front of oven rack slightly
and slide out.
To replace - Place the oven rack on the rack guides on
both sides of oven walls. Tilt the front of oven rack upward
slightly and slide the oven rack back into place. Be sure
oven racks are level before using.
