Adjust the oven thermostat—Do it yourself!
You may find that your new oven cooks differently than the one it replaced. Use your new oven for a few weeks to
become more familiar with it. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the thermostat yourself.
Do not use thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores, to check the temperature setting of your oven.
These thermometers may vary 20–40 degrees.
NOTE: This adjustment will only affect baking and roasting temperatures; it does not affect broiling or self-cleaning
temperatures. The adjustment will be retained in memory after a power failure.
Turn the disk counterclockwise to
increase the oven temperature.
Turn the disk clockwise to decrease
the oven temperature.
The type of margarine will affect baking performance!
Most recipes for baking have been developed using high-fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you
decrease the fat, the recipe may not give the same results as with a higher-fat product.
Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries, cookies or candies are made with low-fat spreads. The lower the fat
content of a spread product, the more noticeable these differences become.
Federal standards require products labeled "margarine" to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low-fat spreads, on the
other hand, contain less fat and more water. The high moisture content of these spreads affect the texture and flavor
of baked goods. For best results with your old favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or stick spreads containing
at least 70% vegetable oil.
To Adjust the Oven Thermostat

The oven temperature can be
adjusted up to (+) 35°F hotter or
(-) 35°F cooler. Press the TEMP +
pad to increase the temperature in
1-degree increments. Press the
TEMP – pad to decrease the
temperature in 1-degree increments.
When you have made the
adjustment, press the START pad to
go back to the time of day display.
Use your oven as you would
(on some models)
You will hear and feel the notches as
you turn the knob. Each notch changes
temperature about 10° Fahrenheit.

Re-check oven performance before making any
additional adjustments.
