Troubleshooting Guide

check this list of possible problems and solutions.
Neither the oven's display nor the oven operate.
• Properly insert the plug into a grounded outlet.
• If the outlet is controlled by a wall switch, make
sure the wall switch is turned on.
• Remove the plug from the outlet, wait ten seconds,
then plug it in again.
• Reset the circuit breaker or replace any blown fuse.
• Plug another appliance into the outlet; if the other
appliance doesn't work, have a qualified electri-
cian repair the outlet.
• Plug the oven into a different outlet.

positioned correctly.
