Adjusting the Oven Temperature

Oven temperatures are carefully tested for accuracy at the
factory. It is normal to notice some baking or browning
differences between a new oven and an old one. As ranges
get older, the oven temperature can shift.
You may adjust the oven temperature if you think the oven is
not baking or browning correctly. To decide how much to
change the temperature, set the temperature 25° higher or
lower than your recipe recommends, then bake. The results
of the "test" should give you an idea of how much to adjust
the temperature.
To adjust the oven temperature:
1. Press BAKE.
2. Enter 550° by pressing the ▲ pad.
3. Press and hold the BAKE pad for several
seconds or until 0° appears in the display.
If the oven temperature was previously adjusted, the
change will be displayed. For example, if the oven tem-
perature was reduced by 15° the display will show "-15°".
4. Press the ▲ or ▼ pad to adjust the temperature.
Each time a pad is pressed, the temperature changes by
5°. The oven temperature can be increased or decreased
by 5° to 35°.
5. The time of day will automatically reappear in the display.
You do not need to readjust the oven temperature if there
is a power failure or interruption. Broiling and cleaning
temperatures cannot be adjusted.
