Make sure the oven vent has not been
blocked. See pg. 9 for location.
Check to make sure range is level.
Temperatures often vary between a new
oven and an old one. As ovens age, the
oven temperature often"drifts" and may
become hotter or cooler. See pg. 7 for
instructions on adjusting the oven tem-
perature.

information on bakeware and baking.

ing a clean cycle. Press Cancel pad and
allow the oven to cool completely. Wipe
out the heavy soil, and then reset the
