Arranging Oven Racks & Roasting Shelf
ALWAYS ARRANGE OVEN RACKS WHEN THE OVEN IS COOL
(PRIOR TO OPERATING THE OVEN). Always use oven mitts when
using the oven.
Recommended Rack Positions for Broiling, Baking & Roasting:
Broiling hamburgers & steaks
Broiling meats, chicken or fish
Cookies, cakes, pies, biscuits
Frozen pies, angel food cake,
yeast, bread, casseroles, small
cuts of meat or poultry
Turkey, roast or ham (some models)
Types of Oven Racks & Roasting Shelf
Your range may be equipped with one or more of
the oven rack types shown; Flat Rack (Fig. 5)
and Roasting Shelf (Fig. 6; some models). To
maximize cooking space the Roasting Shelf
should be used in the lowest rack position to
roast large cuts of meat and poultry (See Fig. 2).
Place Roasting Shelf with care in rack position 7 (See Fig. 2). Be sure the Roasting Shelf is level and the front end of the
shelf rests over the front ends of the oven rack glides on both sides of the oven interior (See Figs. 3 & 4)
Baking Layer Cakes with 1 or 2 Oven Racks
For best results when baking cakes using 2 oven racks, place cookware on rack positions 3 & 6 (See Fig. 7). For best results
when using a single oven Flat Rack, place cookware on rack position 4 (See Fig. 8).
Air Circulation in the Oven
For best air circulation and baking
results allow 2-4" (5-10 cm) around
the cookware for proper air circulation
and be sure pans and cookware do not
touch each other, the oven door, sides
or back of the oven cavity. The hot air
must be able to circulate around the
pans and cookware in the oven for
even heat to reach around the food.
Before Setting Oven Controls
Oven Vent Location
The oven vent is located under the left side of the control panel
(See Fig. 1). When the oven is on, warm air passes through the vent.
This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good
baking results. DO NOT BLOCK OVEN VENT.
Removing & Replacing Oven Racks
To remove, pull the rack forward until it stops. Lift up front of rack and slide
out. To replace, fit the rack onto the guides on the oven walls. Tilt the front
of the rack upward and slide the rack back into place.
