Cooling Fan

The cooling fan runs during all cooking modes. The fan can be heard when it is running, and warm air may be felt as it is released from the oven vent. The fan may also run after the oven is off.

Oven Vent

The oven vent is located below the control panel. Warm air may be released from the vent before, during and after cooking. It is normal to see steam escaping from the vent, and condensation may collect in this area. This area may be warm when the oven is in use. Do not block the vent, since it is important for air circulation.

Oven Bottom

The oven bottom conceals the lower heating element. As a result the element is protected from damage and spills.

Note: Do not place food directly on the oven bottom.

Accessories

Inserting Racks

CAUTION

To avoid burns, place oven racks in desired positions before turning oven on. Always use oven mitts when the oven is warm. If a rack must be moved while the oven is hot, do not let oven mitts contact hot heating elements.

Use caution when removing an oven rack from the lowest rack position to avoid contact with the hot oven door.

To avoid possible injury or damage to the appliance, ensure flat rack is installed exactly per installation instructions and not backwards or upside down.

Flat Rack

The rack is designed with a stop so it will stop before coming completely out of the oven and not tilt.

To insert the flat rack into the oven:

Note: Avoid pushing the rack back forcefully, impacting the rear of the oven cavity. This may cause risk of damage to porcelain coating or to glass covers over light fixtures.

  1. Grasp rack firmly on both sides.
  2. Insert rack (see picture).
  3. Tilt rack up (A) to allow the upwardly sloped rear of the rack to slide under the stop molded into the front portion of the rack guide above.
  4. When the back of the rack is past this stop, lower the front of the rack to a horizontal position (B) and push it the rest of the way in. The rack should be straight and flat, not crooked.

To remove the flat rack from the oven:

  1. Grasp rack firmly on both sides and pull rack toward you.
  2. When the stop is reached, tilt rack up so that the upwardly sloped back of the rack can pass under the stop. Pull the rack the rest of the way out.

Operation

About the Appliance

Your new oven combines premium cooking results and simple operation.

The oven design has been optimized to improve heat distribution in the oven cavity. The result is even browning, shorter cooking times and lower energy consumption.

Thanks to the Self Clean mode, hours of scrubbing into the darkest corners of the oven is a thing of the past. The oven burns off soil simply and easily. All that is left to do is to remove a few ashes from the oven when Self Clean is done.

Clear labeling of the buttons and knobs make operating the oven very easy. This manual includes all instructions for operating the oven.

Please call us if you ever have any questions. Our telephone number is located at the beginning of this manual. We welcome your comments and suggestions!

Menu item

Rack positions are numbered from 1 to 6, from bottom to top.

Consult the food cooking charts at the back of this manual for recommended rack positions.

The top rack guide is not used with the cooking racks. Use rack positions 1 through 6 only. The top guide is there only to bracket the rack and prevent it from tipping when inserted in position 6. Inserting a rack onto the top guide would not be stable, since there is no guide above it to prevent tipping. DO NOT attempt to use the top guide to support a rack.

Rack Position

Mode

Bake is cooking with dry, heated air. Both the upper and lower elements cycle to maintain the oven temperature.

The Bake mode can be used to prepare a variety of food items, from pastries to casseroles. Refer to recipe or package directions for oven temperature and baking time.

Tips

  • When using the Bake mode, preheat the oven if the recipe recommends it.
  • Baking time will vary with the size, shape and finish of the bake ware. Dark metal pans or nonstick coatings will cook faster with darker results. Insulated bakeware will lengthen the cook time for most foods.
  • For best results, bake food on a single rack with at least 1 to 1 1/2 “space between pans or dishes and the oven walls.
  • Eliminate heat loss from the oven by using the window to periodically check food for doneness instead of opening the door.

Auto Convection Conversion (some models)

Convection Bake and Convection Multi-Rack modes require a 25° F reduction in temperature. Auto Convection Conversion reduces the temperature you enter automatically. Simply enter the package or recipe temperature when setting the mode. The control calculates the correct temperature and it is shown in the display.

The Auto Convection Conversion feature can be turned on to allow for automatic temperature adjustments. See “Auto Convection Conversion” in the “Settings” section for details.

Convection Bake (some models)

Convection Bake is similar to Bake. Heat comes from the upper and lower heating elements. The main difference in convection baking is that the heat is circulated throughout the oven by the convection fan. some models)

The Convection Bake mode is well suited for cakes, bar cookies and breads to take advantage of the bottom heat, yielding a better crust on baked items.

The benefits of Convection Bake include:

  • Slight decrease in cook time.
  • Higher volume (yeast items rise higher).

Tips

  • Place food in shallow, uncovered pans such as a cookie sheet without sides.
  • If baking more than one pan on a rack, allow at least 1” to 1 1/2” of air space around the pan. Stagger pans so that one is not directly above the other (see graphic below).
  • For cakes use rack positions 2 and 5. appliances: 30” appliances:

Convection Multi-Rack

(some models)

Convection Multi-Rack mode cooks with heat from a third element behind the back wall of the oven. The heat is circulated throughout the oven by the convection fan.

The Convection Multi-rack mode is well suited for cooking individual serving-sized foods such as cookies and biscuits.

It is also good for cooking on multiple racks (2 or 3) at the same time. Baking cookies is possible on 6 racks simultaneously. In this case, the baking time increases slightly.

The benefits of Multi-Rack include:

  • Even browning.
  • Time savings as a result of using multiple racks at one time.

Tips

  • Reduce recipe temperature by 25° F if Auto Convection
  • Conversion is not activated.
  • Place food in low-sided, uncovered pans such as cookie sheet without sides.
  • If baking more than one pan on a rack, allow at least 1” to 1 1/2” of air space around the pan.

Pizza (some models)

In the Pizza mode, heat from the upper and lower elements is circulated throughout the oven by the convection fan. some models)

Use the Pizza mode for fresh or frozen pizza.

Tips

  • There might be a slight decrease in baking time. Check before minimum package time.
  • When baking a frozen pizza:
    For a crispy crust, place pizza directly on the rack.
    For a softer crust, use a pizza pan.
  • When proofing pizza dough, coat dough with olive oil and place it in a bowl tightly covered with plastic wrap to prevent crust formation.
  • Sprinkle cornmeal on the pizza pan to prevent sticking.
  • If using a pizza paddle, sprinkle the paddle liberally with cornmeal for ease in transferring the dough to the pan.
  • If par baking handmade pizza dough, prick the dough with a fork before baking.
  • If using a pizza pan, choose a dark, perforated pan for a more crisp crust and a non-perforated pan for a softer crust.
  • Preheat baking stones following manufacturer’s recommendations while the oven is preheating.
  • Bake homemade pizza on rack position 2 in the center of the rack.
  • Follow manufacturer’s directions for frozen pizza.
  • The convection fan cycles on and off when using pizza mode.

Roast

Roast uses both the upper and lower elements to maintain the oven temperature. Roasting uses more intense heat from the upper element than the lower element. This results in more browning of the exterior while the inside remains especially moist.

Roast is best suited for large cuts of meat and poultry.

Tips:

  • Preheating the oven is not necessary.
  • Use a high-sided pan, or cover dish with a lid or foil for less tender cuts of meat.
  • Use a meat thermometer to determine the internal temperature of the meat.
  • If the meat is browned to your liking, but is not yet done, a small strip of foil can be placed over the meat to prevent over-browning.
  • Let meat stand covered with foil 10–15 minutes after removing it from the oven.
  • Roasting bags and using a lid are suitable for use in this mode.
  • When roasting whole chicken or turkey, tuck wings behind back and loosely tie legs with kitchen string.
  • Add liquids, such as water, juice, wine, bouillon or stock for flavor and moisture.

Convection Roast (some models)

Convection Roast uses heat from the top and bottom elements as well as heat circulated by the convection fan. some models)

The Convection Roast mode is well suited for preparing tender cuts of meat and poultry. It is also suitable for roasting vegetables.

The benefits of Convection Roast include:

  • As much as 25% faster cooking than non-convection modes.
  • Rich, golden browning.

Tips:

  • Preheating the oven is not necessary.
  • Use the same temperature as indicated in the recipe.
  • Check doneness early, since roasting time may decrease. Refer to the Meat/Poultry cooking chart for examples.
  • Do not cover meat or use cooking bags.
  • Use a broil pan with a rack and grid or a shallow, uncovered pan for roasting.
  • Use a meat thermometer to determine the internal temperature of the meat.
  • If the meat is browned to your liking, but is not yet done, a small strip of foil can be placed over the meat to prevent over-browning.
  • Let meat stand covered with foil for 10 to 15 minutes after removing it from the oven.
  • Refer to the Meat/Poultry Cooking Chart for recommended rack positions.

Broil

Broil uses intense heat radiated from the upper element.

The Broil mode is best suited for cooking thin, tender cuts of meat (1" or less), poultry and fish. It can also be used to brown breads and casseroles. Always broil with the door closed. The benefits of broiling include:

  • Fast and efficient cooking.
  • Cooking without the addition of fats or liquids.

Tips:

  • Preheat oven 3–4 minutes. Do not preheat for more than 5 minutes.
  • Steaks and chops should be at least ¾" thick.
  • Brush fish and poultry with butter or oil to prevent sticking.
  • Use a broil pan and grid (or a deep pan with a metal rack) designed to drain fats and oils away from the cooking surface to prevent smoking and spattering.
  • Turn meats once during the recommended cook time (for Broil times, refer to the Meat/Poultry Cooking Chart). Fish does not need to be turned.
  • When top browning casseroles, use only metal or glass ceramic dishes such as CorningWare ®.
  • Never use heat-proof glass (Pyrex ®); it cannot tolerate the high temperature.
  • Broiling times are approximate and may vary slightly. Times are based on cooking with a preheated broil element.

Convection Broil (some models)

Convection Broil is similar to Broil. It combines intense heat from the upper element with heat circulated by a convection fan. some models)

The Convection Broil mode is well suited for cooking thick, tender cuts of meat, poultry and fish. Convection Broil is not recommended for browning breads, casseroles and other foods. Always use convection broil with the door closed.

In addition to the benefits of standard broiling, convection broiling is faster.

Tips:

  • Preheat oven 3–4 minutes. Do not preheat for more than 5 minutes.
  • Steaks and chops should be at least 1 1/2" thick.
  • Use a broil pan and grid (or a deep pan with a metal rack) for broiling.
  • Do not cover the broil grid with foil. It is designed to drain fats and oils away from the cooking surface to prevent smoking and spattering.
  • Turn meats once during the recommended cook time.
  • Never use heat-proof glass (Pyrex ®); it cannot tolerate the high temperature used for broiling.
  • For Convection Broil times, refer to the Meat/ Poultry Cooking Chart.

Warm

In Warm, the upper and lower elements maintain a low temperature in the oven cavity in order to keep food at serving temperature.

  • Use the Warm mode to keep cooked foods hot until ready to serve.
  • Warm mode temperatures are 150º F – 225º F.
  • The default temperature in the Warm mode is 170º F.
  • Foods that must be kept moist should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil.

CAUTION

When using Warm mode, follow these guidelines:

  • Do not use the Warm mode to heat cold food.
  • Be sure to maintain proper food temperature. The USDA recommends holding hot food at 140° F or warmer..
  • DO NOT warm food longer than one hour.

Proof

In Proof, the oven uses the lower element to maintain a low temperature to proof bread or other yeast doughs.

  • No preheat is necessary.
  • Proofing is the rising of yeast dough.
  • The Proof mode temperature range for single ovens is 100º F to 125º F and for double ovens is 85º F to 125º F.
  • The default temperature in the Proof mode is 100º F.
  • Loosely cover the bowl or pan and use any rack that accommodates the size of the container.
  • Keep the oven door closed and use the oven light to check the rising of the dough.

Removing the Oven Door

WARNING

When removing the door:

  • Make sure oven is cool and power to the oven has been turned off before removing the door. Failure to do so could result in electrical shock or burns.
  • The oven door is heavy and parts of it are fragile. Use both hands to remove the oven door. The door front is glass. Handle carefully to avoid breakage.
  • Grasp only the sides of the oven door. Do not grasp the handle as it may swing in your hand and cause damage or injury.
  • Failure to grasp the oven door firmly and properly could result in personal injury or product damage.
  • To avoid injury from hinge bracket snapping closed, be sure that both levers are securely in place before removing the door. Also, do not force door open or closed—the hinge could be damaged and injury could result.
  • Do not lay removed door on sharp or pointed objects as this could break the glass. Lay on a flat, smooth surface, positioned so that the door cannot fall over.

To remove the oven door:

To help avoid injury or damage be sure to read the above WARNING before attempting to remove the oven door.

  1. Open the oven door to its fully open, horizontal position.
  2. Flip levers on hinges toward you.
    Note: It may be necessary to use a tool, such as a screwdriver, to gently pry the upper part of the lever away from the housing. Take care to avoid scratching the housing.
  3. Bring both door hinge levers to their fullest down position as shown in the illustration. The left and right door hinges differ slightly but operate in the same manner.
  4. Close the oven door until it catches on the hinge stop levers, locking the hinges at the proper angle for door removal. The door will be open about 7 inches at the top. This takes the spring tension off the hinges so the door can be easily lifted out.
  5. The door is heavy. Use both hands to firmly grip it by the sides. Do not grip the door by the handle. Maintaining the door angle, lift the door straight up approximately 3/4" to unhook the hinges from the slots and then pull it out towards you until the hinges are clear of the oven housing.
  6. Place the door in a convenient and stable location for cleaning.

To replace the oven door:

  1. Holding the door firmly in both hands, grip it on either side, not by the handle.
  2. Tilt the door back slightly towards you until it opens about 7" at the top.
  3. Slide the hinges into the slots as far as they will go and then lower the door straight down. The angle of the door may need to be adjusted slightly to allow the hinges to engage properly and the door to lower into place. The door should lower about 3/4" and stop. If not, the hinges have not engaged properly and the door could fall if it is released.
  4. Once both hinges are fully engaged as described in Step 3, gently open the door until it is fully open.
  5. Push the levers on both the hinges up and forward until they are locked into the slot, flush with the front of the oven body.
  6. Close and open door slowly to be sure it is correctly and securely in place.
