•    Do not use water or flour on grease fires. Cover the fire with a pan lid, use baking soda, or use a dry chemical or foam type extinguisher.

•    Use dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholders touch hot cooking areas. Do not use towels or other bulky cloths.


CONVERSION TO L.P. GAS    • Do not cook food on the oven bottom. Always cook

in proper cookware and always use the over racks.

This appliance allows for conversion to Liquefied Petroleum (L.P.) Gas.

If L.P. conversion is needed, contact your local L.P. Gas provider for assistance. The L.P. conversion kit is provided with this appliance and is located on the lower REAR (back side) panel of the range. Before installing the kit be sure to read the L.P. Installation Instructions and follow them carefully when making the installation.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN

   Never use the appliance for warming or heating the room. Doing so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning.

   Use care when opening oven door, lower oven door, or warmer drawer (some models). Stand to the side of the range when opening the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or replace food in the oven.

   Keep oven vent ducts clear. Touching surfaces in this area when the oven is on may cause severe burns. Do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or near the oven vent. These items can melt or ignite.

   Always handle oven racks when the oven is cool. Place oven racks in desired positions while the oven is cool. If a rack must be moved while the oven is hot, use extreme caution. Use potholders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot heating elements in the oven. Remove all cookware and utensils before moving the rack.

   Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil; exposed fat and grease could ignite.

   Do not use aluminum foil or other protective liners to line the oven bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock or fire.

•    Know which knob controls each surface burner. Place a pan of food on the burner before turning it on, and turn the burner off before removing the pan.

•    Always turn knob to the full LITE position when igniting top burners and check that burner has lit. Adjust flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of cookware.

•    Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend over adjacent surface burners.

•    Never leave surface burners unattended at high heat settings — spill overs cause smoking and greasy spills that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.

•    Glazed cooking utensils — Only certain types of cookware are suitable for cook top service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for cook top use.

•    When you are flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn the fan on.


IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR RANGE

   Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area around each burner element. Do not allow grease to accumulate.

   Always follow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for use of kitchen cleaners and aerosols. Be aware that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing damage and injury.

   Clean ventilating hoods frequently. Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning hoods.

SELF-CLEANING OVENS

   Use the self-clean cycle to clean only the parts listed in this manual. Before using self-clean, remove the broiler pan, any food, utensils, and cookware from the oven. Remove oven racks unless otherwise instructed.

   Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial oven cleaner, oven liner, or protective coating of any kind should be used in or around any part of the oven.

   Do not clean the oven door gasket. The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Do not rub, damage, or move the gasket.

•    Some birds are extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-clean cycle of any range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.

For personal safety, the cook top must be properly grounded. For maximum safety, the power cord must be plugged into an electrical outlet that is correctly polarized and properly grounded.

Do not operate the cook top using a 2-prong adapter or an extension cord. If a 2-prong wall receptacle is the only available outlet, it is the personal responsibility of the consumer to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician.

See the installation instructions packaged with this cook top for complete installation and grounding instructions.

A WARNING

Avoid fire hazard or electrical shock. Do not use an adapter plug, and extension cord, or remove grounding prong from the power cord. Failure to follow this warning may cause serious injury, fire, or death.

This appliance is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug. For your protection it should be plugged directly into a properly grounded receptacle. Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug.


Control locations of the gas surface burners

Your built-in range is equipped with gas surface burners with different BTU ratings. The ability to heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as the burner size increases.

The small simmer burner is best used for simmering delicate sauces, etc. This burner is located at the right rear burner position on the cooktop (see Figure 1). The standard burner can be used for most surface cooking needs. The standard burners are located at the left front and left rear positions on the cooktop.

The power burners are best used for bringing large quantities of liquid rapidly up to temperature or when preparing larger quantities of food. The POWER burner is located at the right front position on the cooktop.

Regardless of size, always select cookware that is suitable for the amount and type of food being prepared. Select a burner and flame size appropriate to the pan. Never allow flames to extend beyond the outer edge of the pan.

Assembly of the surface burner caps and burner grates

It is very important to make sure that all of the Surface Burner Caps and Surface Burner Grates are installed correctly and at the correct locations.

1.    Remove all packing material from cooktop area.

2.    Discard all packing material (if applicable).

3.    Unpack Burner Grates and position on the cooktop.

3 IMPORTANT

Do not allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other material to enter the gas orifice holder opening.

Always keep the burner caps and burner heads in place whenever the surface burners are in use.


Operating the gas surface controls

1.    Place cooking utensil on surface burner.

2.    Push the surface control knob down and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF position.

3.    Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position (see figures 1 & 2). Note: All four electronic surface ignitors will spark at the same time. However, only the burner you are turning on will ignite.

4.    Visually check that the burner has a flame.

5.    Turn the control knob counterclockwise to the desired flame size. The control knobs do not have to be set at a particular setting. Use the knob indicator settings to adjust the flame as needed. Do not cook with the surface control knob in the LITE position. (The electronic ignitor will continue to spark if the knob is left in the LITE position.)

OFF

Setting proper surface burner flame size

For most cooking: Start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower one to complete the process. Use the recommendations below as a guide for determining proper flame size for various types of cooking. The size and type of utensil used and the amount of food being cooked will

3 IMPORTANT

Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the utensil. A higher flame simply wastes heat and energy, and increases the risk of being burned by the gas flame.

In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface burners can be lit manually. To light a surface burner, hold a lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn the surface control knob to LITE. After burner lights turn the knob to desired setting.

^ NOTE

Settings based on using medium weight metal or aluminum pans. Settings may vary using other types of pans. The color of the flame is key to proper burner adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue, and hardly visible in a well-lighted room. Each cone of the flame should be steady and sharp. Clean burner if flame is yellow-orange.

Removing, replacing, and arranging flat or offset oven racks

To arrange – Always arrange the oven racks when the oven is cool (prior to operating the oven).

Figure 5:    Oven rack types

Oven Rack Descriptions

•    Flat oven racks (or the flat handle oven rack) may be used for most cooking needs and may be placed in most oven rack positions.

•    The offset oven rack (some models) provides additional stepdown positions from the standard flat rack design. The offset design positions the base of the rack about 1/ 2 of a rack position lower than the flat rack and may be used in most oven rack positions.

•    To maximize oven cooking space place the bottom oven rack (some models) in the lowest rack position for baking or roasting large cuts of meat.

Air circulation in the oven

For best air circulation when baking, allow a space of 2-4 inches (5-10 cm) around the cookware for proper air circulation. Be sure pans and cookware do not touch each other, the oven door, sides, or back of the oven cavity.

Hot air must be able to circulate around cookware for even heat to reach the food.


To remove – Pull the oven rack straight forward until it reaches the stop position. Lift up front of oven rack slightly and slide out.

To replace – Place the oven rack on the rack guides on both sides of oven walls. Tilt the front of oven rack upward slightly and slide the oven rack back into place. Be sure oven racks are level before using.

Oven racks and rack positions

3 IMPORTANT

Remove all oven racks before starting a self-clean cycle. If oven racks are left inside the oven during a cleaning cycle, the slide ability of the oven racks may be damaged and all of the oven racks will lose their shiny finish. Clean oven racks according to the instructions provided in the Care & Cleaning section.

3 IMPORTANT

To prevent possible damage to the oven, do not attempt to close the oven door until all the oven racks are fully positioned back inside the oven cavity.

A CAUTION

Remove all oven racks and accessories before starting a self-clean cycle. If the oven racks are left in the oven during the self-clean cycle, the gliding ability of the oven racks will lose their shiny finish and may turn blue. Remove all oven racks and clean according to instructions provided in the Care & Cleaning section of this manual.

Make sure the oven and oven racks are completely cool. Never pick up hot oven racks or parts.

Setting Bake

Baking Tips

For best bake results:

•    Fully preheat the oven before baking items like cookies, cakes, biscuits, and breads.

•    When using any single rack, position the rack so that the food is in the center of the oven.

•    For best results when baking cakes using two oven racks, place racks in positions 2 and 4 (See Figure 8).

•    When baking using two oven racks, position cookware as shown in Figure 9. Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) of space between cookware for proper air circulation.

•    Dark or dull bakeware absorbs more heat than shiny bakeware. It may be necessary to reduce oven temperature and cook time to prevent overbrowning of some foods. Dark bakeware is recommended for pies. Shiny bakeware is recommended for cakes, cookies, and muffins.

•    For batter and dough-based baked goods such as cakes, pastries, and breads, use the convection function for best results.

To set the bake temperature to 375°F:

1.    Arrange interior oven racks.

2.    Press bake. 350 will appear in the display.

3.    Press 3 7 5.

4.    Press start. The actual temperature will be displayed. A beep will sound once the oven temperature reaches 375°F, and the display will show 375°.

5.    When preheated, place food in oven.

1.    After the oven has already been set to bake at 375°F and the oven temperature needs to be changed to 425°F, press bake and 375 will appear in the display.

2.    Press 4 2 5.

3.    Press start.

Adjusting Oven Temperature

The temperature in the oven is pre-set at the factory. When first using the oven, be sure to follow recipe times and temperatures. If you think the oven is cooking too hot or too cool for the temperature you select, you can adjust the actual oven temperature to be more or less than what is displayed. Before adjusting, test a recipe by using a temperature setting higher or lower than the recommended temperature. The baking results should help you to decide how much of an adjustment is needed.

To adjust the oven temperature higher:

1.    Press bake for 6 seconds. UPO 0 will appear in the display.

2.    To increase the temperature, use the number keys to enter the desired change. For example, for 30°F, press 3 0. The temperature may be increased as much as 35°F (19°C).

3.    Press start to accept the temperature change and the display will return to the time of day. Press off to reject the change if necessary.

To adjust the oven temperature lower:

1.    Press bake for 6 seconds. UPO 0 will appear in the display.

2.    To decrease the temperature, use the number keys to enter the desired change (Example -30°F) 3 0. Then, press self clean. The temperature may be decreased as much as 35°F (19°C).

3.    Press start to accept the temperature change and the display will return to the time of day. Press off to reject the change if necessary.


Setting Broil Broiling tips:

•    Broil foods with oven door closed.

•    For optimum browning, preheat the broil element for 2 minutes. Broil one side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and serve.

•    If using a searing grill (available by mail order), preheat oven 5 to 10 minutes before grilling.

This mode is best for meats, fish and poultry up to 1” thick. Broiling cooks tender cuts of meat by direct heat. The broil key controls the broil feature. An optional searing grill, broiler pan, and insert are available via the enclosed accessories brochure (See Figure 10). The broil pan and broil pan insert used together allow grease to drain away from the high heat of the oven broiler. The oven can be programmed to broil at any temperature from 400°F to 550°F with a default temperature of 550°F.

To set a broil of 500°F:

1.    Place the broiler pan insert on the broiler pan and place the food on the broiler pan insert. Do not use the broiler pan without the insert.The exposed grease could ignite.

2.    Arrange the interior oven rack and place the broiler pan on the rack. Center the broiler pan directly under the broiler element. Preheat for 2 minutes before broiling.

3.    Press broil. 550 will appear in the display.

4.    Press 5 0 0. If a lower broil temperature is desired (minimum broil temperature setting is 400°F), press the desired temperature before continuing to Step 5.

5.    Press start. The oven will begin to broil. 500° will appear in the display.

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

7.    To stop broiling, press off.

Convection Cooking

Multiple rack baking may slightly increase cook time for some foods, but the overall result is time saved. Some food may cook faster and more evenly with convection bake. Convection baking uses the three elements and a fan to circulate the heat evenly and continuously within the oven (See Figure 12).

Benefits of convection cooking:

•    Multiple rack baking.

•    Some foods cook faster, saving time and energy.

•    No special pans or bakeware needed.

This mode of cooking enables you to obtain the best results when baking with multiple pans and racks. The oven can be programmed for convection baking at any temperature between 170°F to 550°F with a default temperature of 350°F.

To set the oven for convection bake and temperature to 375°F:

1.    Arrange interior oven racks.

2.    Press convect. Convect and bake will flash and 350 will appear in the display. If a convection bake of 350°F is needed, press start.

3.    Press 3 7 5. Convect and bake will keep flashing, and 375° will appear in the display.

4.    Press start. The actual oven temperature and the fan icon will be displayed. A beep will sound once the oven temperature reaches 375°F, and the display will show 375°, CONVECT, BAKE, and the fan icon.

5.    Place food in oven.

Convection baking tips:

•    Fully preheat the oven before baking items like cookies, cakes, biscuits, and breads.

•    If your recipe cooking temperature has already been converted for convection baking, there is no need to reduce your oven temperature. If not, you can easily reduce using the Convection Convert feature. Please see “Setting Convection Convert” on page 19 for further instruction on temperature conversion.

•    When using any single rack, position the rack so that the food is in the center of the oven.

•    For best results when baking cakes using two oven racks, place racks in positions 2 and 4 (See Figure 13).

•    When baking using two oven racks, position cookware as shown in Figure 14. Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) of space between cookware for proper air circulation.

•    Dark or dull bakeware absorbs more heat than shiny bakeware. It may be necessary to reduce oven temperature and cook time to prevent overbrowning of some foods. Dark bakeware is recommended for pies. Shiny bakeware is recommended for cakes, cookies, and muffins.

•    Most baked goods (except cakes) should be baked on pans with no sides or low sides to allow to circulate

^ NOTE

The convection fan and fan icon will start once the oven has reached a proper temperature for convection bake. The display will show an icon of rotating fan within a square, indicating the convection fan is operating. The bake and convection elements will also cycle for a better heat distribution.

Pressing off will stop the feature at any time.


Setting Convection Convert

Convection convert automatically converts a standard baking recipe for convection baking. When set properly, this feature is designed to display the actual converted (reduced) temperature in the display. Convection convert may only be used with a convection bake cooking mode. It can be used with a delay start and bake time. For delay start instructions, see page 20. For bake time instructions, see page 20. If convection conversion is used with the bake time and delay start features, CF (check food) will be displayed when 75% of the bake time complete. At this time the oven control will sound three long beeps at regular intervals until baking time is finished. The control will display End and continue to beep at regular intervals until off is pressed.

To set the oven for convection bake with a standard baking recipe temperature of 400°F:

1.    Arrange interior oven racks.

2.    Press convect. Convect and bake will flash and 350 will appear in the display.

3.    Pres 4 0 0. Convect and bake will keep flashing and 400° will appear in the display.

4.    Press start.

5.    Set bake time or delay start if needed. For delay start instructions, see page 20. For bake time instructions, see page 20.

6.    Press convect convert, and the oven will start heating. The temperature displayed will be 25°F lower than what it used to be. The actual oven temperature and the fan icon will be displayed. A beep will sound once the oven temperature reaches 375°F, and the display will show 375°, CONVECT, BAKE, and the fan icon.

7.    Place food in the oven.

Setting Convection Roast

This mode is best for cooking tender cuts of beef, lamb, pork, and poultry. Use this mode when cooking speed is desired. Convection roasting gently browns the exterior and seals in the juices. Convection roasting uses the bake element, convection element, broil element, and fan to circulate the heat evenly and continuously within the oven. The oven can be programmed for convection roasting at any temperature between 170°F to 550°F with a default temperature of 350°F.

To set a convection roast temperature of 375°F:

A WARNING

Should an oven fire occur, close oven door and turn off the oven. If the fire continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use a fire extinguisher. Do not put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive, and water can cause a grease fire to spread and cause personal injury.

1.    Arrange oven racks and place food in the oven.

2.    Press convect; 350 will be displayed; Convect and bake will flash.

3.    Press convect again. 350 will be displayed, and convect and roast will flash.

4.    Enter the desired roasting temperature using the number keys. Press 3 7 5.

5.    Press start; The actual oven temperature will be displayed. Convect, roast, and the fan icon will be displayed. The bake, broil, and convection elements will also cycle for a better heat distribution.

Convection roasting tips:

•    Use a broiler pan and grid, as well as a roasting rack (available by mail order). The broiler pan will catch grease drippings, and the grid will help prevent spatters. The roasting rack will hold the meat.

•    It’s not recommended to roast chicken on a roasting rack. Use a deep pan instead.

•    Place an oven rack on rack position 1 (offset rack).

•    No preheat is needed in convection roast.

•    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.

•    Pull the rack out to the stop position before removing food. Position food (fat side up) on the roasting rack.


Setting Bake Time

Use bake time when setting the oven to cook for a specific length of time and shut off automatically when the time is complete.

When cooking time ends, the oven will shut off and will beep. This feature can be used with bake, convection bake, convection roast, and slow cook modes.

To program the oven to begin baking immediately and to shut off automatically (example: Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes):

To delete a favorite:

Press my favorite for 3 seconds to delete while the oven is not in operation and no cooking mode has been set. The heart icon will turn off, indicating that the recipe has been deleted.


Setting Slow Cook (some models)

The slow cook feature is best for cooking at lower temperatures for longer periods of time and works best for beef (ribs and brisket), pork roasts, and poultry dishes.

Slow cook has two settings: Lo 225°F (108°C) and Hi 275°F (135°C). Both settings can be used with the following options:

•    Bake time

•    Bake time with delay start

Slow cook tips:

•    Slow cooking meats may result in the outside of the meat turning dark; this is normal.

•    Completely thaw all frozen foods before cooking

•    When using a single oven rack, place in oven rack so food is centered in oven.

•    Position multiple racks to accommodate size of cooking utensils when cooking multiple food items.

•    Add any cream or cheese sauces during the last hour of cooking.

•    Do not frequently open the oven door or leave the oven door open when checking food items. The more heat that is lost, the longer the food will need to cook.

•    Cover foods to keep them moist or use a loose or vented cover to allow foods to turn crisp or brown.

•    Roasts may be left uncovered so browning can occur. Cook times will vary depending on the weight, fat content, bone, and the shape of the roast.

•    Preheating the oven is not necessary.

To set slow cook:

1.    Position oven racks and cookware in oven. Close the oven door.

2.    Press slow cook (some models). HI will appear in the oven display indicating the default setting is for high heat. If a low setting is needed, press slow cook again to select the LO setting and release.

3.    Press start.

4.    To stop cooking at any time, press off.

Slow cook can be changed between Hi and Lo settings by pressing slow cook to toggle between the two settings. Press start to activate the new setting.

For meats like poultry and roasts, using a probe to check internal temperature is the safest method to ensure properly cooked food.

The probe feature, when set correctly, will signal an alert when the internal food temperature reaches the desired set target temperature.

When active, the probe displays the internal food temperature which is visible in the display during the cooking process. This eliminates any guesswork or the need to open the oven door to check the thermometer.

3 IMPORTANT

•    Do not store the probe inside the oven. Use only the original probe provided. Connecting any other probe or device could result in damage to the oven control, electronics, and the receptacle.

•    Before starting self clean, double check that the probe is removed from the oven interior. Defrost frozen foods completely before inserting the probe.

Proper placement of probe in food.

• Insert the probe so that the probe tip rests inside the center of the thickest part of meat or food (See Figure 16). For best results, do not allow the probe temperature sensor to contact bone, fat, gristle, or the cookware.

•    For meat loaf or casseroles, insert the probe into center of food.

•    When cooking fish, insert meat probe just above the gill.

•    For whole poultry or turkey, fully insert the probe sensor into the thickest part of inner thigh, just below the leg (See Figure 17).


OVEN CONTROLS

To set probe:

1.    Insert the probe into the food. Place prepared food on the desired oven rack position and slide into the oven.

2.    Plug the connector end of the probe all the way into the probe receptacle while the oven is still cool. The receptacle is located on the upper left front oven cavity wall (See Figure 15).

3.    When the probe is set, an acceptance tone will sound, the probe icon will illuminate, and the actual probe temperature appears in the display (See Figure 18). Close the oven door

Figure 18: Probe set showing probe temperature

4.    Press probe key once. Enter the desired target food temperature using the numeric keys and set temperature for food type. The minimum setting is 140°F (60°C); the maximum is 210°F (99°C). Default is 170°F (77°C).

5.    Press start to accept the target temperature.

6.    Set for quick preheat, bake, convect bake, convect roast, or convect convert, and if necessary adjust the oven temperature accordingly.

7.    The control will provide three beeps when the internal target temperature is reached. The oven will automatically change to a warm setting (HLd) and the actual probe temperature will alternate in the display. Warm will maintain the oven temperature at 170°F (77°C) for 3 hours unless otherwise cancelled.

To stop cooking at any time, press off.

To set how the oven will operate once the probe reaches the target temperature:

The oven is preset to automatically stop cooking and start the warm feature when probe sensor reaches the target temperature. This may be set to continue cooking if desired. Setting the options once the probe reaches the target temperature must be done when the oven is inactive. The probe is not required to be connected to the probe receptacle when setting this option.

To set the oven to continue cooking after reaching the target temperature:

1.    Press probe key and hold for 6 seconds.

2.    Press self clean key and toggle until Continu: appears, as shown in Figure 19, then press start to accept.

CflnCEL

Figure 20: Probe set to cancel cooking Probe too hot message:

When the message Prob… Too… Hot… flashes in the display, the probe temperature has exceeded 250°F (121°C). If the probe is not removed, this message may continue until the sensor reaches 300°F (149°C) or higher, and oven will automatically turn off. Be sure the probe sensor is fully covered by the food.

^ NOTE

During cooking the internal food temperature will display by default. To see the target temperature press the probe key once. After 6 seconds the display will revert to the internal food temperature. To assure accuracy, do not remove the probe from the food or receptacle until the desired internal temperature is reached.

If the probe is removed from the receptacle only, the probe feature will cancel but the oven will continue to cook. If the probe is removed from the food only, the probe feature will remain active and may eventually generate a probe too hot message.

To change the target temperature while cooking, press the probe key once. Use the numeric keys to change the temperature. Press the start key to accept any change.

Setting the Sabbath Feature (For use on the Jewish Sabbath and Holidays)

The bake time and delay start keys are used to set the Sabbath feature.

For further assistance, guidelines for proper usage, and a complete list of models with the Sabbath feature, please visit the web at https:\\www.star-k.org.

The Sabbath feature may only be used with the bake function. Once the oven is properly set using bake with the Sabbath feature active, the oven will remain on until cancelled. The Sabbath feature overrides the factory preset 12 hour energy saving feature.

If the oven light is needed during the Sabbath, press Oven light before activating the Sabbath feature. Once the oven light is turned on and the Sabbath feature is active, the oven light will remain on until the Sabbath feature is turned off. If the oven light needs to be off, be sure to turn the oven light off before activating the Sabbath feature.

5.    Press and hold both the bake time and delay start keys for at least 3 seconds. SAb will appear in the display. Once SAb appears in the display, the oven control will no longer beep or display any further changes, and the oven is properly set for the Sabbath feature.

6.    The oven may be turned off at any time by first pressing off (this will turn the oven off only).

7.    To turn off the Sabbath feature, press and hold both the bake time and delay start keys for at least 3 seconds. SAb will disappear from the display.

^ NOTE

•    You may change the oven temperature once baking has started by pressing bake and the numeric keys for the new temperature. For example, to change from 350°F to 425°F, press 4 2 5. Then, press start twice.

•    Only the following controls will function after setting the Sabbath feature: numeric keypad, bake, start, and off. All other features will not function once the Sabbath feature is properly activated.

•    The display will not show temperature changes or sound any audible tones when the oven is set with the Sabbath feature

3 IMPORTANT

It is advised to not activate any cooking function other than bake while the Sabbath feature is active.


To program the oven to begin baking immediately and

activate the Sabbath feature (example: baking at

350°F):

1.    Be sure that the clock is set with the correct time of day.

2.    Place the food in the oven. Press bake. 350° appears in the display. Press start. The actual oven temperature appears in the display.

3.    If you desire to set the oven control for a bake time or delayed bake time, do so at this time. If not, skip this step and continue to Step 5. For delay start instructions, see page 20. For bake time instructions, see page 20. Remember the oven will turn off after using bake time or delay start and may only be used once during the Sabbath/Jewish holidays. The maximum bake time is 5 hours and 59 minutes.

4.    The oven will turn on and begin heating.


Power failure while using Sabbath feature:

Should you experience a power failure or interruption, the oven will shut off. When power is returned, SF (Sabbath Failure) will be displayed, and the oven will not turn back on automatically. If your food was nearly fully cooked, you may allow the trapped heat in the oven to finish the cooking process. Otherwise, you should remove the food when the power failure occurs because you may only start the oven once during the Sabbath/Jewish holidays.

After the Sabbath observance turn off the Sabbath feature. Press and hold both the bake time and delay start keys for at least 3 seconds. SAb will disappear from the display and the oven may be used with all normal functions.


Self-Cleaning Operation


A CAUTION

•    Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom, or any other part of the oven with aluminum foil. Doing so will block 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).

•    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.

•    During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the oven can become very hot to the touch. Do not leave small children unattended near the appliance.

•    Do not force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system.

•    Use caution when opening the door after the selfcleaning cycle is completed. The oven may still be very hot. Stand to the side of the oven door when opening the door to allow hot air or steam to escape.

A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above normal cooking temperatures) which eliminate soils completely or reduces them to a fine powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth

What to expect during self-cleaning

While in self-clean mode, the oven heats to temperatures much higher than those used in normal cooking. Sounds of metal expansion and contraction are normal.

Odors are normal as the food soil is being removed. Smoke may appear through the oven vent.

If heavy spills 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-cleaning cycle.

3 IMPORTANT

Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:

•    Do not use oven cleaners or protective coatings in or around any part of the oven interior. Do not clean the oven door gasket. Take care not to rub, damage, or remove the gasket or use any cleaning substances on the oven door gasket (See Figure 21). Doing so could cause damage and reduce the efficiency of the oven’s performance.

•    Clean any soil from the oven frame, door liner outside the oven door gasket, and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom with soap and water (See Figure 21). These areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on.

•    Remove any excessive spills from the oven cavity before starting the self-cleaning cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spills 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 milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices, or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may leave a dull spot even after cleaning.

•    Do not use aluminum foil or liners in the oven. These items are not made to withstand the very high temperatures of a self-clean cycle and will melt.

•    Remove all oven racks and accessories. If oven racks are not removed before a self-clean, they will lose their special coating and will no longer slide in and out of the oven cavity effortlessly.

•    Oven racks accidentally left in the oven during self clean may be wiped down after cooling with a high-temperature cooking oil to lubricate them.

Setting Self-Clean Cycle Duration

The self clean key controls the self-cleaning feature. If you are planning to use the oven directly after a self-clean cycle remember to allow time for the oven to cool down and the oven door to unlock. This normally takes about one hour. A 3 hour self-clean cycle will actually take about 4 hours to complete.

It is recommended to use a 2 hour self-clean cycle for light soils, a 3 hour cycle for average soils, and a 4 hour cycle for heavy soils.

To set the controls for a 3 hour self-cleaning cycle to start immediately and shut off automatically:

1.    Be sure the clock is set with the correct time of day and the oven door is closed.

2.    Press self clean. CLn and 3:00 HR will show in the display. The control will automatically clean for a 3 hour period (default self-cleaning cycle time). If a 2 or 4 hour clean time is desired, press self clean multiple times to toggle between 2, 3, or 4 hours.

3.    Press start. door Loc will appear, a beep will sound,

and the word DOOR and the    (lock icon) will flash;

CLn will remain on in the display.

4.    As soon as the control is set, the motor driven oven door lock will begin to close automatically. Once the door is locked, the DOOR indicator light and Q icon will stop flashing and remain on, and the oven icon will appear in the display. Allow about 15 seconds for the oven door to lock completely.

When the self-clean cycle is completed:

1.    HOT will appear in the display. The time of day, the word DOOR, and the Q icon will remain in the display.

2.    Once the oven has cooled for approximately 1 hour, door OPn will appear, and the word DOOR and the lock icon will flash until the door unlocks. The door can be opened, and the display will show the time of day.

To stop or Interrupt a self-cleaning cycle:

If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a self-cleaning cycle due to excessive smoke or fire in the oven:

1.    Press off.

2.    The oven door can only be opened after the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR. door OPn will appear, and the word DOOR and the Q icon will flash until the door is unlocked. The oven door can then be opened, and the timer will revert back to the time of day.

The self clean and delay start keys control the delayed self-clean operation. The automatic timer will turn the oven on and off at the time you select in advance.

To set the control for the self-cleaning cycle to start at a delayed time and shut off automatically (example: 3 hour self-clean cycle to start at 4:30):

1.    Be sure the clock is set with the correct time of day and the oven door is closed.

2.    Press self clean. CLn and 3:00 HR will show in the display. The control will automatically clean for a 3 hour period. If a 2 or 4 hour clean time is desired, press self clean multiple times to toggle between 2, 3, or 4 hours.

3.    Press start. door Loc will appear, a beep will sound, and the word DOOR and the lock icon will flash. The letters CLn will remain on in the display.

4.    As soon as the control is set, the motor driven oven door lock will begin to close automatically. Once the door has been locked, the word DOOR and the Q lock icon indicator light will quit flashing and remain on.

5.    Press delay start. Enter the desired start time using the number keys 4 3 0.

6.    Press start. DELAY, DOOR, and the icons will remain on.

7.    The control will start the self-cleaning at the set start time for the period of time previously selected. At that time, the icon DELAY will go out; CLn and oven icon will appear in the display.

When the self-clean cycle is completed:

1.    HOT will appear in the display. The time of day, the word DOOR, and the lock icon will remain in the display.

2.    When oven cools approximately 1 HOUR, door OPn will appear, and the word DOOR and the Q icon will flash until the door is unlocked. The oven door can then be opened, and the timer will revert back to the time of day.


CARE AND CLEANING

Cleaning Various Parts of Your Wall Oven
Before cleaning any part of the oven, be sure all controls are turned off and the oven is cool. Remove spills and any heavy soiling as soon as possible. Regular cleaning will reduce the number of major cleaning later.

Surface Type

Recommendation

Aluminum and Vinyl

Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.

Painted and plastic control knobs Painted body parts

Painted decorative trims

Using a soft cloth, clean with mild dish detergent and water or a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry and polish with a soft cloth. Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth first. Do not spray liquids directly on the oven control and display area. Do not use large amounts of water on the control panel – excess water on the control area may cause damage to the appliance. Do not use other liquid cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or paper towels – they will damage the finish. To remove control knobs, turn to the OFF position; grasp firmly and pull straight off the shaft. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.

Stainless Steel

Your oven finish may be made with stainless steel (some models). Clean the stainless with warm soapy water using a clean sponge or cloth. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft clean cloth. Do not use any store bought cleaners like stainless steel cleaners or any other types of cleaners containing any abrasive, chlorides, chlorine, or ammonia. It is recommended to use mild dish soap and water or a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar.

Porcelain enamel broiler pan and insert (available by mail order)

Door liner and 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 an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp cloth, and then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating.

Oven racks

Oven racks must be removed from oven cavity. Clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following manufacturer’s instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry.

Oven door

Use soap and water to thoroughly clean the top, sides, and front of the oven door. Rinse well. You may use a glass cleaner on the outside glass of the door. Do not immerse the door in water. Do not spray or allow water or the glass cleaner to enter the door vents. Do not use oven cleaners, cleaning powders, or any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the outside of the oven door.
Do not clean the oven door gasket. On self-clean models, the oven door gasket is made of a woven material which is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or remove this gasket.
