On models without a temperature probe, use a meat
thermometer to determine whether meat, poultry and fish, are
cooked to the desired degree of doneness. The internal
temperature, not appearance, should be used to determine
doneness. A meat thermometer is not supplied with this
appliance. Follow manufacturer's directions for using a meat
A. Control panel
B. Oven vent
The oven vent should not be blocked or covered since it allows
the release of hot air and moisture from the oven. Blocking or
covering vents 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.
Baking and Roasting
A. Broil element
B. Bake element
Temperature Management System
(on some models)
system electronically regulates the oven heat
levels during preheat and bake to maintain a precise temperature
range for optimal cooking results. 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.
D. Upper oven
E. Oven vent
F. Lower oven
Before baking and roasting, position racks according to the
"Positioning Racks and Bakeware" section. When roasting, it is
not necessary to wait for the oven preheat conditioning time to
end before putting food in unless recommended in the recipe.
If the oven door is opened during baking and roasting, the bake
and broil elements will turn off immediately. They will come back
on once the door is closed.
To Bake or Roast:
1. On double oven models only, press UPPER OVEN or LOWER
Close oven door. The display will show "door" and the
heating elements will not heat if the door is open when baking
2. Press BAKE.
Press the TEMP "+" or "-" keypads to enter a temperature
other than 350°F (177°C). The bake range can be set between
170°F and 500°F (77°C and 260°C).
3. Press START.
A preheat time will count down and "PrE" will appear on
the oven display if the actual oven temperature is under
When the actual oven temperature reaches 170°F (77°C), the
timer will continue counting down. The temperature setting
can be changed anytime after pressing START.
When the set temperature is reached, if enabled, one tone will
4. Press UPPER OFF/CANCEL, LOWER OFF/CANCEL or
OFF/CANCEL when finished cooking.
After START is pressed, the oven will enter a timed preheat
conditioning. "PrE" and the time countdown will appear on the
display. When the preheat conditioning time ends, a tone will
sound and the selected temperature will appear on the display.
Preheat temperatures are affected by varying factors such as
room temperature and peak energy usage times. It is normal for
the temperature showing on the display and the actual oven
temperature to differ.
Waiting an additional 10 minutes after the preheat conditioning
time ends to put food in the oven is suggested when baking
foods with leavening ingredients, such as yeast, baking powder,
baking soda and eggs.
Broiling and Custom Broiling
A. Broil element
Broiling uses direct radiant heat from the broil element to cook
food. During broiling, the broil element cycles on and off in
intervals to maintain the oven temperature.
If the oven door is opened during broiling, the broil element will
turn off immediately and come back on once the door is closed.
