Before Setting Oven Controls

This range has a fan that will turn "ON" and "OFF" by itself to keep the electronics cool. It may continue
to run after the range has been turned "OFF", but may also stop immediately and then turn "ON" after a while.

Arranging Oven Racks
ALWAYS ARRANGE OVEN RACKS WHEN THE OVEN IS COOL (PRIOR TO OPERATING THE OVEN). Always use oven
mitts when the oven is hot.
Air Circulation in the Oven
For best air circulation and baking results allow 2-4" (5-10 cm) 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.

Setting Oven Controls

Refer to the Electronic Oven Control Guide for oven settings.
Oven Vent Location
Models with Coil Elements- The oven is vented through the right rear coil
element. Models with Ceramic Glass Cooktop-The oven vent is located at
right rear of the surface cooktop.
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 and Replacing Oven Racks
To remove, pull the rack forward until it stops. Lift up front of rack and slide out. To
replace, fit the rack onto the guides on the oven walls. Tilt the front of the rack upward
and slide the rack back into place.
