Temperature Management System
The oven control system electronically regulates the oven heat
levels during preheat and bake to maintain a temperature range for
optimal cooking results. The bake burner cycles on and off in
intervals. On convection range models, the fan may run while
preheating and may be cycled on and off for short intervals during
baking to provide the best results. This feature is automatically
activated when the oven is in use.
The convection fan will not be on during the first 5 minutes of the
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.
When broiling, preheat the oven for 5 minutes before putting food
in unless recommended otherwise in the recipe. Position food on
grid in a broiler pan, then place it in the center of the oven rack.
IMPORTANT: Close the door to ensure proper broiling
Changing the temperature when Custom Broiling allows more
precise control when cooking. The lower the broil setting, the
slower the cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of
meat, fish and poultry may cook better at lower broil settings. Use
racks 6 or 7 for broiling. Use rack position 6 if using the roll-out
rack. Refer to the "Positioning Racks and Bakeware" section for
more information.
In a convection oven, the fan-circulated hot air continually
distributes heat more evenly than the natural movement of air in a
standard thermal oven. This movement of hot air helps maintain a
consistent temperature throughout the oven, cooking foods more
evenly, crisping surfaces while sealing in moisture and yielding
crustier breads.
During convection cooking, the bake and broil burners, convection
(true convection only) element and fan cycle on and off in intervals
to maintain the oven temperature, while the fan circulates the hot
NOTE: The convection fan will turn on approximately 5 minutes
into any convection cycle.
If the oven door is opened during convection cooking, the fan will
turn off immediately. It will come back on when the oven door is
NOTE: The oven door must be closed for convection broiling.

Baking and Roasting

When START is pressed, "LO" will be displayed and the oven will
begin preheating. Once 100ºF (38ºC) 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.
The time necessary to preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C) will be
approximately 15 minutes, depending on the model. Factors that
have an impact on preheat times are: room temperature, starting
oven temperature, quality of the gas supply, and the number of
oven racks. Unused oven racks can be removed prior to preheating
your oven to reduce preheat time.


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 "Accessories" section for more information.
NOTE: Odors and smoke are normal the first few times the oven is
used or if the oven is heavily soiled.

Convection Cooking

Position the racks according to the "Positioning Racks and
Bakeware" section before starting convection cooking.
With convection cooking, most foods can be cooked at a lower
temperature or at a shorter time. These adjustments can be made
using the following chart or by using the EasyConvect™
Conversion feature on your range.
Reduce the standard baking temperature
25°F (15°C)
Use standard recipe temperature. Cooking time
may be reduced by 15-30% with Convect Roast
so the food should be checked for doneness early.
Use standard recipe temperature. Cooking time
