Oven Vent

When the oven is in use the area near the vent may become
hot enough to cause burns. Never block the vent opening.
The oven vent is located below the backguard vent
shield on your range.
Oven Light
Press the oven light switch on the control panel
to turn the oven light on and off.

Oven Bottom

Protect oven bottom against spillovers, especially acidic or
sugary spills, as they may discolor the porcelain enamel. Use
the correct pan size to avoid spillovers and boilovers. Do not
place utensils or aluminum foil directly on the oven

Oven Racks

• Do not attempt to change the rack position when the oven
is hot.
• Do not use the oven for storing food or cookware.
The oven has two racks. All racks are designed with a lock-
stop edge.
To remove:
1. Pull rack straight out until it
stops at the lock-stop
2. Lift up on the front of the rack
and pull out.
Do not place
plastics near the
vent opening as
heat from the vent
could distort or
melt the plastic.
To replace:
1. Place rack on the rack support in the oven
2. Tilt the front end up slightly. Slide rack back until it clears
the lock-stop position.
3. Lower front and slide back into the oven.
Do not cover an entire rack with aluminum foil or place foil
on the oven bottom. Baking results will be affected and
damage may occur to the oven bottom.

Half Rack Accessory

A half rack, to increase oven
capacity, is available as an accessory.

the oven and provides space for a
vegetable dish when a large roaster
is on the lower rack. Contact your
