Oven vent location
The oven vent is located under the control panel. When the
oven is on, warm air passes through this vent. This venting
is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good
baking results. Steam or moisture may appear near the
oven vent, this is normal. Do not block oven vent.

Do not block oven vent location
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using the
oven. When cooking, the oven interior and exterior, as
well as the oven racks, will become very hot which can
cause burns.
Protective Liners — Do not use aluminum foil to line the
oven bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in
this manual. Improper installation of these liners may
result in risk of electric shock or fire.
Removing, replacing, and arranging flat or offset
oven racks
To arrange - Always arrange the oven racks when the oven
is cool (prior to operating the oven).
To remove - Pull the oven rack straight forward until it
reaches the stop position. Lift up front of oven rack slightly
and slide out.
To replace - Place the oven rack on the rack guides on both
sides of oven walls. Tilt the front of oven rack upward
slightly and slide the oven rack back into place. Be sure
oven racks are level before using.

Oven Rack Descriptions
Flat oven racks (or the flat handle oven rack) may be
used for most cooking needs and may be placed in
most oven rack positions.
The offset oven rack (some models) provides additional
stepdown positions from the standard flat rack design.
The offset design positions the base of the rack about
half of a rack position lower than the flat rack and may
be used in most oven rack positions.
Air circulation in the oven
For best air circulation when baking, allow a space of
2 inches (5 cm) around the bakeware for proper air circula-
tion. Be sure pans and bakeware do not touch each other,
the oven door, sides, or back of the oven cavity.
Hot air must be able to circulate around bakeware for heat
to reach the food evenly.
