Before Setting Oven Controls

Oven Vent Location

The oven is vented at the upper control panel orat 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.

Setting Oven Controls

For oven settings, refer to the timer section or the electronic oven control.


Oven Door Bracket Adjustment (Some Side Swing Models)

If the oven door is too loose or too tight to open, it is possible to adjust it. There is an adjustable bracket located on the front frame under the door on the handle side. (see figure)

To have an oven door opening loosen, push down the adjustable bracket and to have it tighten, lift up the bracket.

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.Most recipes can be made with temperatures set at 13°C (25°F) lower than temperatures required for normal radiant cooking methods. Refer to the electronic oven control operating instructions included in the "Electronic Oven Control" section. This can result in considerable reduction of food shrinkage and more tender meats.

Dual Cavity models, you do not have to make this adjustment, the timer make it automatically.

2.Batch cooking is more convenient with better results.

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

4.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 a broiler pan and grid, and the roasting rack. Broiler pan will catch grease spills and the grid will help prevent spatters. 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.

Air Circulation in the Oven

For good air circulation in the oven and best baking results, center pans as much as possible. Allow 5.1 to 10.2cm (2” to 4”) around the utensil(s) for proper air circulation and be sure pans do not touch each other, the door, sides or back of oven. The hot air must circulate around the pans in the oven for even heat to reach all parts of the oven.

If using multiple pans, stagger as shown.

If using one pan, place in center of oven.


Oven Baking

For best cooking results, heat the oven before baking cookies, breads, cakes, pies or pastries, etc. There is no need to preheat the oven for roasting meat or baking casseroles.

The cooking times and temperatures needed to bake a product may vary slightly from your previously owned appliance.

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 utensil from oven 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 meatswell-done.

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.

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.


Oven Cleaning

Cleaning the Self-CleanOven(some models)

Adhere to the Following Cleaning Precautions:

Allow the oven to cool before cleaning.

Wear rubber gloves when cleaning any exterior parts of the oven manually.

During the self-cleaningcycle, the outside of the wall oven can become very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave a small children unattended near the appliance.

Before cleaning any part of the oven, be sure the electronic oven control is turned off or else push CANCEL pad. Wait until the oven is cool.

The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during theself-cleancycle of any wall oven. Move birds to another well ventilated room.

DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any part of theself-cleaningoven. DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The gasket on the oven door is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or move the gasket. DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the gasket. Doing so could damage it. DO NOT use aluminum foil to line the oven bottom. This may affect cooking or foil could melt and damage the oven surface.

A self-cleaningoven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking temperatures) which eliminate soil completely or reduce it to a fine powdered ash you can whisk away with damp cloth.

Preparing the Oven for Self-Cleaning

1.Remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the self-cleaningcycle. To clean, use hot soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. DO NOT allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.

Down Swing Models

Side Swing Models

2.Clean any soil from the oven frame and the door liner (see illustration). These areas heat sufficiently during a self-cleanto burn soil on. Clean with soap and water.

3.Remove all utensils and any foil. These items do not withstand high cleaning temperatures.

4.Oven racks may be left in the oven or may be removed. If they go through the clean cycle, their colour will urn slightly dull. After the cycle is completed and the oven has cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of baby oil or salad oil. This will make the racks glide easier.

What to Expect during Cleaning:

While the oven is in operation, the oven heats to temperatures much higher than those used in normal cooking. Sounds of metal expansion and contraction are normal. Odor is also normal as the food soil is being removed. Smoke may appear through the oven vent.

If heavy spillovers are not wiped up before cleaning, they may flame and cause more smoke and odor than usual. This is normal and safe and should not cause alarm. If available, use an exhaust fan during the self-cleaningcycle.

NOTE: A smoke eliminator in the oven vent converts most of the soil into a colourless vapor.


Oven Cleaning

Porcelain Enamel Oven (some models)

Porcelain has a smooth finish and is a type of glass fused to metal. Oven cleaners can be used on all interior oven surfaces. REMOVE SPILLOVERS AND HEAVY SOILING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.


Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:

Allow the oven to cool before cleaning.

Wear rubber gloves when cleaning the appliance manually.

General Cleaning

Remove soils using hot, soapy water. Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes, saukerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.

To Remove Heavy Soil

1.Allow a dish of ammonia to sit in the oven overnight or for several hours with the oven door closed. Clean softened spots using hot, soapy water. Rinse well with water and a clean cloth.

2.If soil remains, use a soap-filledscouring pad or a nonabrasive cleaner. If necessary, use an oven cleaner following manufacturer's instructions.DO NOT mix ammonia with other cleaners.

Adhere to the following precautions when using oven cleaners:

1.DO NOT spray on the electrical controls or switches because it could cause a short circuit and result in sparking or fire.

2.DO NOT allow a film from the cleaner to build up on the temperature sensing bulb; it could cause the oven to heat improperly. (The bulb is located in the rear of the oven.) Carefully wipe the bulb clean after each oven cleaning, being careful not to move the bulb. A change in its position could affect how the oven bakes. Avoid bending the bulb and capillary tube.

3.DO NOT spray any cleaner on the oven door trim or gasket, handles or any exterior surfaces of the appliance, wood or painted surfaces. The cleaner can damage these surfaces.

To Clean the Oven Bottom

Clean using hot, soapy water, a mild abrasive cleanser, a soap-filledabrasive pad or oven cleaner following manufacturer's instructions.

Ammonia must be rinsed before operating the oven. Provide adequate ventilation.

DO NOT line the oven walls, bottom, racks or any other part of the appliance with aluminum foil. Doing so will destroy heat distribution, produce poor baking results and cause permanent damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil will melt to the interior surface of the oven).
