Indicator Light

Some models have an indicator light for each heating unit, other models have an indicator light for each pair of heating units.
The indicator light glows as soon as a heating unit is turned on. Check if the indicator light glows when the control knob of the
individual heating unit is turned on. If the knob is set to a very low temperature setting, the indicator may glow and yet, the heating
unit may not be heating at all. If this happens, turn the knob to a higher setting until the heating unit comes on.
When cooking is finished, a quick glance at the indicator lights is an easy check to be sure all the control knobs have been turned
to OFF " ".

oven for roasting meat or baking casseroles.
