Preheating and Pan Placement

1. Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it. To preheat, set the oven at the correct temperature. Preheating is necessary for good results when baking cakes, cookies, pastry and breads.

2. For ovens without a preheat indicator light or tone, preheat 10 minutes.

3. Baking results will be better if baking pans are centered in the oven as much as possible. Pans should not touch each other or the walls of the oven. If you need to use two racks, stagger the pans so one is not directly above the other, and leave approximately 11/2" between pans, from the front, back and sides of the wall.

Aluminum Foil and Oven Liners

CAUTION

Do not use any type of foil or oven line to cover the oven bottom. These items can trap heat or melt, resulting in damage to the product and risk of shock, smoke or fire. Damage from improper use of these items is not covered by the product warranty.

Foil may be used to catch spills by placing a sheet on a lower rack, several inches below the food. Do not use more foil than necessary and never entirely cover an oven rack with aluminum foil. Keep foil at least 1-1/2” from oven walls to prevent poor heat circulation.

Baking and Roasting Feature

(These features are not available for the lower oven.)(on some models)

NOTE: Foods that spoil easily—such as milk, eggs, fish, stuffings, poultry and pork—should not be allowed to sit for more than 1 hour before or after cooking. Room temperature promotes the growth of harmful bacteria. Be sure that the oven light is off because heat from the bulb will speed harmful bacteria growth.

How to Set an Immediate Start and Automatic Stop:

Oven Thermostat - Do It Yourself!

You may find that your new oven cooks differently than the one it replaced. Use your new oven for a few weeks to become more familiar with it. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the thermostat yourself.

Do not use thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores, to check the temperature setting ofyour oven. These thermometers may vary 20-40 degrees.

NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling or the self-cleaning temperatures. The adjustment will be retained in memory after a power failure.

To Adjust the Oven Thermostat (on the upper oven):

1. Touch the BAKE and BROIL HI/LO pads at the same 4. When you have made the adjustment, touch the time for 3 seconds until the display shows SF. START pad to go back to the time of day display. Use

2. Touch the BAKE pad. A two digit number shows in . the display.

3. The oven temperature can be adjusted up to (+) 35°F hotter or (-) 35°F cooler. Touch the + pad to increase the temperature in 1 degree increments. Touch the – pad to decrease the temperature in 1 degree increments.

4. When you have made the adjustment, touch the START pad to go back to the time of day display. Use your oven as you would normally.

To Adjust the Oven Thermostat (on the lower oven) - on some models:

Pull the OVEN knob off the shaft, look at the back of the knob and note the current setting before making any adjustment.

The knob is factory set with the top screw directly under the pointer.

1. Pull off the OVEN knob.

2. Loosen both screws on back of the knob.

3. Hold both parts of the knob as shown in the illustration of the back of the OVEN knob and turn so the lower screw moves in the desired direction.

You will hear and feel the notches as you turn the knob. Each notch changes temperature about 10° Fahrenheit.

4. Tighten the screws.

5. Return the OVEN knob to the oven.

Re-check oven performance before making any additional adjustments.

The type of margarine will affect baking performance!

Most recipes for baking have been developed using high fat products such as butteror margarine (80% fat). Ifyou decrease the fat, the recipe may not give the same results as with a higher fat product.

Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries, cookies or candies are made with low fat spreads. The lower the fat content of a spread product, the more noticeable these differences become.

Federal standards require products labeled “margarine” to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low fat spreads, on the other hand, contain less fat and more water. The high moisture content of these spreads affect the texture and flavor of baked goods. For best results with your old favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or stick spreads containing at least 70% vegetable oil.

Broiling Feature

How to Set the Oven for Broiling:

1. Place the meat or fish on a broiler grid in a broiler pan designed for broiling.

2. Follow suggested rack positions in the Broiling Guide. If your oven is connected to 208 volts, rare steaks may be broiled by preheating the broiler and positioning the oven rack one position higher

3. Touch the BROIL HI/LO pad once for HI Broil. To change to LO Broil, touch the BROIL HI/LO pad again

4. Touch the START pad.

5. When broiling is finished, touch the CLEAR/OFF pad.

NOTE: The lower oven is controlled with a knob. To set the oven for broiling turn the knob to BROIL. Turn the knob to OFF when broiling is complete.

Leave the door open to the broil stop position. The door stays open by itself, yet the proper temperature is maintained in the oven.

CARE AND CLEANING

Self-Cleaning

(This feature is not available for the lower oven.)(on some models)

The oven door must be closed and all controls must be set correctly for the cycle to work properly.

Before a Clean Cycle:

The oven must be cool in order to set the self-clean cycle.

We recommend venting your kitchen with an open window or using a ventilation fan or hood during the first self-clean cycle. Remove broiler pan, broiler grid, all cookware and any aluminum foil from the oven.

The shiny, silver-colored oven racks (on some models) can be self-cleaned, but they will darken, lose their luster and become hard to slide.

Do not use abrasives or oven cleaners. Clean the top, sides and outside of the oven door with soap and water.
Make sure the oven lightbulb cover (on some models) is in place and the oven light is off.

IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any oven. Move birds to another well ventilated room.

How to Set the Oven for Cleaning:

1. Touch the SELF CLEAN pad.

2. Using the + or - pad, enter the desired clean time, if a time other than 4 hours is needed. Clean cycle time is normally 4 hours. You can change the clean time to any time between 3 hours and 5 hours, depending on how dirty your oven is.

3. Touch the START pad. The door locks automatically. The display will show the clean time remaining. It will not be possible to open the oven door until the temperature drops below the lock temperature and the LOCKED light goes off.

When the LOCKED light is off, open the door.

■ The word LOCK will flash and the oven control will signal if you set the clean cycle and forget to close the oven door.

■ To stop a clean cycle, touch the CLEAR/OFF pad. When the LOCKED light goes off indicating the oven has cooled below the locking temperature, open the door.

How to Delay the Start of Cleaning:

1. Touch the SELF CLEAN pad.

2. Using the + or - pad, enter the desired clean time. Clean cycle time is normally 4 hours. You can change the clean time to any time between 3 hours and 5 hours, depending on how dirty your oven is.

3. Touch the DELAY START pad.

4. Using the + or - pad, enter the time of day you want the clean cycle to start.

5. Touch the START pad.

The door locks automatically. The display will show the start time. It will not be possible to open the oven door until the temperature drops below the lock temperature and the LOCKED light goes off.

When the LOCKED light is off, open the door.

After a Clean Cycle:

You may notice some white ash in the oven. Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the oven cools.

If white spots remain, remove them with a soap-filled scouring pad and rinse thoroughly with a vinegar and water mixture.

These deposits are usually a salt residue that cannot be removed by the clean cycle.

If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle, repeat the cycle.

■ You cannot set the oven for cooking until the oven is cool enough for the door to unlock.

■ Racks may become difficult to slide, especially after a self-clean. Put some vegetable oil on a soft cloth or paper towel and rub onto the left and right edges.

NOTE: Using other cooking oils will cause a discoloring or a rust like color residue on the racks and cavity sides. To clean this residue, use a soap and water or a vinegar and water solution. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft cloth.

Oven Door

Be sure electrical power is off and all surfaces are cool before cleaning any part of the oven

Lift-Off Oven Door

The oven door is removable for easier access to the light bulb.

Do not lift the door by the handle.

To remove the door, open it to the broil stop position. Grasp firmly on each side and lift the door straight up and off the hinges.

Do not place hands between the hinge and the oven door frame.

To replace the door, make sure the hinges are in the broil stop position. Position the slots in the bottom of the door squarely over the hinges and slowly lower it over both hinges.

Door (on the upper oven and/or self clean model)

To clean the inside of the door:

■ Because the area inside the gasket is cleaned during the self-clean cycle, you do not need to clean this by hand.

■ The area outside the gasket and the door liner can be cleaned with a soap-filled or plastic scouring pad, hot water and detergent. Rinse well with a vinegar and water solution.

To clean the outside of the door:

■ Use soap and water to thoroughly clean the top, sides and front of the oven door. Rinse well. You may also use a glass cleaner to clean the glass on the outside of the door. Do not let water drip into the vent openings.

■ If any stain on the door vent trim is persistent, use a soft abrasive cleaner and a sponge-scrubber for best results.

■ Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato sauces and basting materials containing acids may cause discoloration and should be wiped up immediately. When surface is cool, clean and rinse.

■ Do not use oven cleaners, cleaning powders or harsh abrasives on the outside of the door.

The gasket is designed with a gap at the bottom to allow for proper air circulation.

Do not rub or clean the door gasket—it has an extremely low resistance to abrasion.

If you notice the gasket becoming worn, frayed or damaged in any way or if it has become displaced on the door, you should have it replaced.

Lift-Off Oven Door

To clean the inside of the door:

■ Because the area inside the gasket is cleaned during the self-clean cycle, you do not need to clean this by hand.

■ The area outside the gasket and the door liner can be cleaned with a soap-filled or plastic scouring pad, hot water and detergent. Rinse well with a vinegar and water solution.

To clean the outside of the door:

■ Use soap and water to thoroughly clean the top, sides and front of the oven door. Rinse well. You may also use a glass cleaner to clean the glass on the outside of the door. Do not let water drip into the vent openings.

If any stain on the door vent trim is persistent, use a soft abrasive cleaner and a sponge-scrubber for best results.

Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato sauces and basting materials containing acids may cause discoloration and should be wiped up immediately. When surface is cool, clean and rinse.

Do not use oven cleaners, cleaning powders or harsh abrasives on the outside of the door.

Racks, Elements, Panels

Be sure electrical power is off and all surfaces are cool before cleaning any part of the oven

Oven Racks

Clean the oven racks with an abrasive cleanser or steel wool. After cleaning, rinse the racks with clean water and dry with a clean cloth.

NOTE: The shiny, silver-colored oven racks (on some models) may be cleaned in the self-cleaning oven. However, the racks will darken in color, lose their luster and become hard to slide if cleaned during the self-cleaning cycle.

Racks may become difficult to slide, especially after a self-clean. Put some vegetable oil on a soft cloth or paper towel and rub onto the left and right edges.

NOTE: Using other cooking oils will cause a discoloring or a rust like color residue on the racks and cavity sides. To clean this residue, use a soap and water or a vinegar and water solution. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft cloth.

Oven Heating Elements

Do not clean the bake element or the broil element. Any soil will burn off when the elements are heated.

To clean the oven floor, gently lift the bake element. Clean with warm soapy water.

Control Panel

It's a good idea to wipe the control panel after each use. Clean with mild soap and water or vinegar and water, rinse with clean water and polish dry with a soft cloth.

Do not use abrasive cleansers, strong liquid cleansers, plastic scouring pads or oven cleansers on the control panel—they will damage the finish. A 50/50 solution of vinegar and hot water works well.

Control Knob (on some models)

The control knobs may be removed for easier cleaning. Make sure the knobs are in the OFF positions and pull them straight off the stems for cleaning.

The knobs can be cleaned in a dishwasher or they may also be washed with soap and water. Make sure the inside of the knobs are dry before replacing.

Replace the knobs in the OFF position to ensure proper placement.

Painted Surfaces

Clean with soap and water or a vinegar and water solution.

Do not use commercial oven cleaners, cleansing powders, steel wool or harsh abrasives on any painted surface.

Glass Surfaces

To clean the outside glass finish, use a glass cleaner. Rinse and polish with a dry cloth.

Do not allow the water or cleaner to run down inside oven door while cleaning.

Stainless Steel Surfaces (on some models)

Do not use a steel wool pad; it will scratch the surface.

To clean the stainless steel surface, use warm sudsy water or a stainless steel cleaner or polish. Always wipe the surface in the direction of the grain. Follow the cleaner instructions for cleaning the stainless steel surface.

To inquire about purchasing stainless steel appliance cleaner or polish, or to find the location of a dealer nearest you, please call our toll-free number: National Parts Center 1.800.626.2002 GEAppliances

Oven Light

Non-Self-Clean Oven Interior (on standard clean models or on lower oven)

With proper care, the porcelain enamel finish on the

inside of the oven—top, bottom, sides, back and inside of the door—will stay new-looking for years.

Let the oven cool before cleaning. We recommend that you wear rubber gloves when cleaning the oven.

Soap and water will normally do the job. Heavy spattering or spillovers may require cleaning with a mild abrasive cleaner. Soap-filled scouring pads may also be used.

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. They may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.

Household ammonia may make the cleaning job easier. Place 1/2 cup in a shallow glass or pottery container in a cold oven overnight. The ammonia fumes will help loosen the burned-on grease and food.

If necessary, you may use an oven cleaner. Follow the package directions.

■ Do not spray oven cleaner on the electrical controls and switches because it could cause a short circuit and result in sparking or fire.

■ Do not allow a film from the cleaner to build up on the temperature sensor—it could cause the oven to heat improperly. (The sensor is located at the top of the oven.) Carefully wipe the sensor clean after each oven cleaning, being careful not to move the sensor as a change in its position could affect how the oven bakes.

■ Do not spray any oven cleaner on the oven door, handles or any exterior surface of the oven, cabinets or painted surfaces. The cleaner can damage these surfaces.

Oven Light Bulb (on some models)

CAUTION

Before replacing your oven light bulb, disconnect the electrical power to the oven at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel. Be sure to let the light cover and bulb cool completely.

To remove the cover:

1. Hold a hand under the cover so it doesn’t fall when released. With fingers of the same hand, firmly push back the wire cover holder. Lift off the cover. Do not remove any screws to remove the cover.

2. Replace bulb with a 40-watt appliance bulb.

To replace the cover:

1. Place it into grooves of the light receptacle. Pull wire forward to the center of the cover until it snaps into place.

2. Connect electrical power to the oven.

Oven Light Bulb (on some models)

NOTE: The glass cover (on some models) should be removed only when cold. Wearing latex gloves may offer a better grip.

Before replacing the bulb, disconnect electrical power to the oven at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel. Let the bulb cool completely before removing it. For your safety, do not touch a hot bulb with a damp cloth. If you do, the bulb will break.

To remove:

Turn the glass cover counterclockwise 1/4 turn until the tabs of the glass cover clear the grooves of the socket. Remove the bulb.

To replace:

Put in a new 40-watt appliance bulb.

Place the tabs of the glass cover into the grooves of the socket. Turn the glass cover clockwise 1/4 turn.

Note:

■ A 40-watt appliance bulb is smaller than a standard 40-watt household bulb.

■ Install and tighten the cover clockwise.

■ Reconnect electrical power to the oven.

■ For improved lighting inside the oven, clean the glass cover frequently using a wet cloth. This should be done when the oven is completely cool.
