This is normal. The temperature limiter operates automatically to protect
the glass ceramic surface from extreme high temperature damage.
The knob was turned too rapidly. Turn knob slower until correct wording or
temperature appears. Review manual instructions when setting clock,
timer, or Self-Clean.
Turn the oven off at the circuit breaker and wait 5 minutes. Turn breaker
back on. The oven should reset itself and will be operable.
Check circuit breaker or fuse box to your house. Make sure there is proper
electrical power to the oven. Be sure oven temperature has been selected.
Adjust oven calibration if necessary (see Oven Temperature Offset). Refer
to cooking charts for recommended rack position. Always reduce recipe
temperature by 25°F when baking in Convection Bake mode.
The oven thermostat needs adjustment. See Oven Temperature Offset.
Replace or reinsert the light bulb if loose or defective. Touching the bulb
with fingers may cause the bulb to burn out.
Check for obstruction in oven door. Check to see if hinge is bent.
There may be soil build-up around the lens cover. Wipe lens cover area
with a clean dry towel prior to attempting to remove the lens cover.
Allow the oven to cool before running Self-Clean. Always wipe out loose
soils or heavy spillovers before running Self-Clean. If oven is badly soiled,
set oven for a five-hour Self-Clean. See Preparing the Oven to Self-Clean.
Make sure there is electrical power to oven. See Clock and Timer sections.
When oven racks are removed and replaced, always tilt racks upward and
do not force them to avoid chipping the porcelain.
This is a fault code. Press Off to clear the display and stop beeping. Reset
oven if necessary. If fault code remains and beep continues, record fault
code, cancel oven and call authorized service technician.
This is normal with a new range and will disappear after a few uses. Oper-
ating the self-clean cycle will also "burn-off" the smell more quickly.
