(on some models)
The oven light is turned on by the switch located on the control

Baking and Roasting
Before baking and roasting, position the racks according to the
"Positioning Racks and Bakeware" section. When roasting, it is
not necessary to wait for the oven to preheat before putting food
in, unless recommended in the recipe.
To Bake or Roast:
1. Push in and turn the oven control knob to the desired
temperature setting. The OVEN ON indicator light will turn on
and will turn off once the oven is preheated.
2. Place food in oven.
The bake and roasting elements will turn on and off to keep
the oven temperature at the setting. The OVEN ON indicator
light(s) will turn on and off with the elements.
3. Push in and turn oven control knob to OFF when finished.
The OVEN ON indicator light will turn off.
Broiling uses direct radiant heat to cook food. Changing the
temperature when broiling allows more precise control. The lower
the temperature, the slower the cooking. Thicker cuts and
unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish and poultry may cook
better at lower broiling temperatures.
Use only the broiler pan and grid provided with the range. It is
designed to drain juices and help prevent spatter and smoke.
For proper draining, do not cover the grid with foil. The
bottom of the pan may be lined with aluminum foil for easier
Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit the remaining fat on
the edges to prevent curling.
Pull out oven rack to stop position before turning or removing
food. Use tongs to turn food to avoid the loss of juices. Very
thin cuts of fish, poultry or meat may not need to be turned.
After broiling, remove the pan from the oven when removing
the food. Drippings will bake on the pan if left in the heated
oven, making cleaning more difficult.
Before broiling, position rack according to Broiling Chart. It is not
necessary to preheat the oven before putting food in unless
recommended in the recipe. Position food on grid in the broiler
pan, then place it in the center of the oven rack. Close the door to
the broil stop position to ensure proper broiling temperature.
1. Push in and turn oven control knob to BROIL.
On some models, set the oven selector and oven temperature
control knob to BROIL. The OVEN ON indicator light will turn
2. After broiling, turn the oven control knob to OFF.
On some models, turn both the oven selector and oven
temperature control knob to OFF. The OVEN ON indicator
light will turn off.
To Broil at a Lower Temperature:
If food is cooking too fast, turn the oven temperature control
knob counterclockwise until the OVEN ON indicator light goes
To broil food slower from the start of cook time, set the oven
temperature control knob between 170°F and 325°F (77°C and
163°C). These temperature settings let the broil elements cycle
and slow cooking results.
