Timed Cooking allows the oven to be set to turn on at a certain time of day, cook for a set length of
time, and/or shut off automatically. Delay start should not be used for foods such as breads and
cakes because they may not bake properly.
To set a Timed Cook or a Delayed Timed Cook see "Timed Cooking" section.
The Start Time keypad is used to enter the starting time for an oven function with a delayed start.
The Start pad begins any oven function. If Start is not pressed within 5 seconds, "PUSH?" or
"PSH" appears in the display. If start is not pressed within 1 minute after pressing a keypad, the
function is canceled and the time of day is displayed.
The Cancel/Off keypad stops any function except the Clock, Timer, and Oven Control Lockout.
The "+" or "-" arrow pads are used to adjust time and temperature settings.


Hot Surface Indicator Light (on some models)
On ceramic glass models, the hot surface indicator light is located
on the console panel.
The hot surface indicator light will glow as long as any surface
cooking area is too hot to touch, even after the surface cooking
area is turned off.
Coil Elements and Burner Bowls (on some models)
Coil elements should be level for optimal cooking results. Burner
bowls, when clean, reflect heat back to the cookware. They also
help catch spills.
Cookware should not extend more than ½" (1.3 cm) over the coil
element. If cookware is uneven or too large, it can produce excess
heat, causing the burner bowl to change color.
Dual Cooking Zone (on some models)
The Dual Cooking Zone offers flexibility depending on the size of
the cookware. Single size can be used in the same way as a regular
element. The dual size combines both the single and outer element
and is recommended for larger size cookware.
