Oven Racks
Your range is equipped with one or more Flat Oven Rack(s). Place the rack(s)
into the positions shown in Fig. 2. See the Recommended Rack Positions in the
chart above.
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 Figs. 2 & 4). For best results when using a single oven Flat Rack,
place cookware on rack position 4 (See Figs. 2 & 5).
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

The oven vent is located below the backguard (See Fig. 1). When the oven is
on, warm air is released through this vent. This venting is necessary for proper air
