Before Setting Oven Controls

Oven Vent Location
The oven vent is located as shown in

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.

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.
Protective liners — Do not use aluminum foil
to line the oven bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recom-
mended in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may
result in risk of electric shock, or fire
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. During self clean
temperatures the oven will be hot enough to melt foil.
