Before Setting the Oven Controls
Upper & Lower Oven Vents
Oven Vent Location
See illustration on left side for venting location of each oven. When the oven is
on, warm air is released through the vent. This venting is necessary for proper air
circulation in the oven and good baking results. DO NOT block the vent. Doing so
may cause cooking failures, fire or damage to the appliance.
Removing & Replacing Oven Racks
To remove an oven rack, pull the rack forward until it
stops. Lift up front of rack and slide out.
To replace an oven rack, fit the rack onto the guides
on the oven walls. Tilt the front of the rack upward
and slide the rack back into place.
Installing Oven Rack Supports
To install oven rack support, insert it into the two brackets on the
oven wall interior and push down as shown in the illustration to
To remove the oven rack
support for a self-clean cycle,
pull up the support to disengage
it from the brackets.
Air Circulation in the Oven
If using 1 rack, place in center of oven. If using
multiple racks, stagger cookware as shown.
For best air circulation and baking results allow
2"-4" (5-10cm) 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.
Arranging Oven Racks & Supports
ALWAYS ARRANGE OVEN RACKS WHEN THE OVEN IS COOL (PRIOR TO
OPERATING THE OVEN).
Broiling meats, chicken or fish
To bake on:
Frozen pies, angel food cake, yeast,
bread, casseroles, small cuts of meat or
Turkey, roast or ham
Note: Always use oven mitts when removing food.
Note: It is recommended not to introduce food into the oven until the preheat cycle
time is complete. Unsatisfactory cooking performance or scorching of food may
occur if placed in oven prior to preheat cycle completion.
