Oven vent location
The oven vent is located in the rear of the cooktop. When
the oven is on, warm air passes through this vent. This
venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven
and good baking results. While the oven is in operation, it is
normal for steam or moisture to appear near the vent.
Important: Do not block oven vent.

Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using the
oven. When cooking, the oven interior and exterior, oven
racks and cooktop will become very hot which can cause
Protective Liners — Do not use aluminum foil to line the
oven bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in
this manual. Improper installation of these liners may

Removing, replacing, and arranging flat or offset
Always arrange the oven racks when the oven is cool
(prior to operating the oven).
Pull the oven rack straight forward until it reaches the
stop position. Lift up front of oven rack slightly and slide
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.
Important: Remove all oven racks and accessories from
the oven before performing a self clean operation.
Air circulation in the oven
For best results the air circulation must be optimal when
baking. Allow a space of 2-4 inches (5-10 cm) around the
cookware for proper air circulation.
Be sure pans and cookware do not touch each other, the
oven door, sides, or back of the oven cavity.
Hot air must be able to circulate around cookware for even
heat to reach the food.
