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
circulate around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat to reach
around the food.
Some models are equipped with a blower which
runs in baking and self-cleaning mode to keep all internal
components at a cool temperature. It is possible that the blower
keeps running even if the range has been turned off, until the
components have cooled down.
Arranging Oven Racks
ALWAYS ARRANGE OVEN RACKS WHEN THE OVEN IS COOL (PRIOR TO OPERATING THE OVEN). Always use oven
mitts when the oven is hot.
Oven Vent Location
The oven vent is located in the center rear on the cooktop. 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.
Never close off the openings with aluminum foil or any other
Refer to the Electronic Oven Control Guide for oven settings.
