A. Oven vent (ceramic glass model)
The bake and broil elements cycle on and off in intervals. The bake
element will glow red when cycling on; the broil element will not.
This feature is automatically activated when the oven is in use.
Before baking and roasting, position racks according to
"Positioning Racks and Bakeware" section. When roasting, it is not
necessary to wait for the oven preheat cycle to end before putting
food in unless it is recommended in the recipe.
Broiling uses direct radiant heat to cook food. Changing the
temperature when Custom Broiling allows more precise control
when cooking. 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.
For best results, use a broiler pan and grid. It is designed to
drain juices and help avoid spatter and smoke.
If you would like to purchase a broiler pan, one may be ordered.
Please refer to the cover for contact information. Ask for Part
Number 4396923.

Oven Vent

A. Oven vent (coil element model)

Baking and Roasting

Timed Cooking

The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven, and
should not be blocked or covered. Blocking or covering the vent
will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking and cleaning
results. Do not set plastics, paper or other items that could melt or
burn near the oven vent.
On coil element models, the element can be used when the oven is
in use as long as the cookware does not extend more than
½" (1.3 cm) over the element.
When START is pressed, the oven will begin preheating. Once
170ºF (75ºC) is reached, the display temperature will increase as
the actual temperature of the oven increases. When the preheat
temperature is reached, a tone will sound, and the selected
temperature will appear on the display.


It is not necessary to preheat the oven before putting food in unless
recommended in the recipe. Position food on grid in a 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.
(on some models)
4. Press the TEMP/TIME "+" or "-" arrow pads to enter the length

6. Press OFF/CANCEL to clear the display.
To Set a Delayed Timed Cook:
Before setting, make sure the clock is set to the correct time of day.
