"DO IT YOURSELF"
TEMPERATURE
ADJUSTMENTS
You may feel that your new oven cooks differently than
the oven It replaced. We recommend that you use your
new oven a few weeks to become more familiar with It,
following the times given in your recipes as a guide.
If you think your new oven is too hot (burning foods) or
not hot enough (foods are undercooked) you can adjust
the temperature yourself. The appearance and texture
of foods are better Indicators of oven accuracy than an
inexpensive oven thermometer.
We do not recommend
the use of Inexpensive thermometers,
such as those
found in grocery stores, to check the temperature set-
ting of your new oven. These thermometers can vary by
20-40 degrees.
In addition,
the oven dour must be
opened to read these thermometers.
Opening the door
will change the temperature of the oven.
To decide]tow much to change the temperature, set the
oven temperature 25°F higher (if foods are undercooked)
or 25°F lower (If foods are burning) than the temperature
In your recipe, then bake.
TheTesuIts
of this "test"
should give you an-idea of how much the temperature
should be changed.
To adjust

1. Turn OVEN SET KNOB to "OFF" and remove the
