Lower Oven

Vent Location

Some models are equipped with a blower which runs in baking andself-cleaningmode to keep all internal components at a cool temperature. The blower may keep running even if the oven has been turned off, until the components have cooled down.

Oven Vent Location

The ovens are vented at the center trim. 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.

Arranging 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.

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.

Cooking Informations


Broiling is a method of cooking tender cuts of meat by direct heat under the broil element of the oven.


Preheating is suggested when searing rare steaks. (Remove all ustensils before preheating. Foods will stick if placed on hot metal.) To preheat, set the control(s) to BROIL as instructed in the Owner's Guide. Wait for the element to become red-hot,usually about

2 minutes. Preheating is not necessary when broiling meats well-done.

Broil Stop Position

To Broil

Broil on side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and serve. Always pull rack out to the "stop" position before turning or removing food.

Determine Broiling Times

Broiling times vary, so watch the food closely. Time not only depends on the distance from element, but on the thickness and aging of meat, fat content and doneness preferred. The first side usually requires a few minutes longer than second. Frozen meats also require additional time.

Broiling Tips

Broiler pan and its grid allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler.

DO NOT use a pan without its grid. DO NOT cover the grid with foil. The exposed grease could ignite.

Should an oven fire occur, close the oven door and turn off the oven. If the fire continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use fire extinguisher. DO NOT put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive.

Grid (some models)

Broiler Pan (some models)

Broiler Clean-UpTips (some models)

To make cleaning easier, line the bottom of the broiler pan with aluminum foil. DO NOT cover the broiler grid with foil.

To prevent grease from baking on, remove the broiler pan from the oven as soon as cooking is completed. Use hot pads because the broiler pan is extremely hot. Pour off grease. Soak the pan in HOT, soapy water.

Clean the broiler pan as soon as possible after each use. If necessary, use soap-filledsteel wool pads. Heavy scouring may scratch the grid.


Cooking Informations

Convection Cooking (some models)

The convection oven uses a fan located in the rear wall of the oven to circulate heated air around the food to be cooked. The controlled air flow pattern quickly seals the food surface retaining the natural juices and flavour. This method of cooking enables you to obtain the best culinary results when baking, thawing, dehydrating and roasting foods.

Convection notes:

1.Batch cooking is more convenient with better results.

2.Defrosting is quicker in convection mode when compared to regular radiant cooking.

3.Remember to use tested recipes with times adjusted for convection baking/roasting when using the convection mode. Times may be reduced by as much as 30% when using the convection feature.

Convection Roasting (some models)

When convection roasting, use the broiler pan and grid, and the roasting rack. The broiler pan will catch grease spills and the grid will help prevent spatters. The roasting rack will hold the meat.

To prevent food from contacting the broil element and to prevent grease spattering,DO NOT use the roasting rack when broiling.

1.Place oven rack on next-bottomrack position.

2.Place the grid in the broiler pan. The roasting rack fits on the grid allowing the heated air circulate under the food for even cooking and helps to increase browning on the underside. Make sure the roasting rack is securely seated on the grid in the broiler pan. DO NOT use the broiler pan without the grid or cover the grid with aluminum foil.

3.Position food (fat side up) on the roasting rack.

4.Place the broiler pan on the oven rack. Note: Always pull rack out to the stop position before removing food.

NOTE: For best convection roasting result, always use the broiler pan, grid and roasting rack.

(Cleaning Chart)









How to Clean





Aluminum (Trim Pieces)

Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth. Do not scour or use all-purpose

& Vinyl

cleaners, ammonia, powdered cleaners or commercial oven cleaner. They can scratch


and discolor aluminum.

Painted and Plastic Parts,

Body Parts, and Decorative


For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils and builtup grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on soil for 30 to 60 minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners on any of these materials; they can scratch.

Stainless Steel, Chrome,

Control Panel, Decorative


Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls to OFF. Clean using hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with a clean water using a dishcloth. Be sure to squeeze excess water from the cloth before wiping the panel.

Clean stainless steel with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and a cloth.Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorines. Do not use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners from the surface as bluish stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.

Porcelain Enamel Broiler Pan and Insert (some models), Door Liner, Body Parts

Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with anammonia-soakedpaper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp cloth, and then scrub with asoap-filledscouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating.DO NOT use spray oven cleaners.

Oven Racks

Oven racks may be removed or left in the oven during the Self-Cleancycle for


cleaning. If removed, clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following manufacturer's


instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry.

If the racks are cleaned in the Self-Cleancycle, their color will turn slightly blue and the finish will be dull. After theSelf-Cleancycle is complete, and the oven has cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack positions).
