Before Setting Oven Controls
Oven Vent Location
The oven vent is located above the control panel
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. Do not block oven vent. Steam or moisture
may appear near the oven vent. This is normal.

Arranging, Removing, and Replacing Racks
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using
the oven. When cooking, the oven interior and exterior, and
oven racks will become very hot which can cause burns.

To remove - pull the rack forward until it stops. Lift up front of
rack and slide out.
To replace - fit oven rack onto the rack guides on both sides of
oven walls. Tilt the front of oven rack upward and slide the rack
back into place. Be sure oven racks are level before using.:
Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom, or any other parts
of the range with aluminum foil. Doing so will alter heat
distribution, produce poor baking results, and may cause
permanent damage to the oven interior.
