•    Wear proper apparel. Loose-fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while using the appliance.

•    Do not touch heating elements or interior surfaces of oven. Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of an oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the appliance may become hot enough to cause burns – among these surfaces are (identification of surfaces – for example, oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors).

3 IMPORTANT

Read and follow the below instructions and precautions for unpacking, installing, and servicing your

appliance:

•    Remove all tape and packaging before using the oven. Destroy the carton and plastic bags after unpacking the oven. Never allow children to play with packaging material.

•    Proper installation is essential. Be sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician in accordance with the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No. 70 latest edition and local electrical code requirements. In Canada, install in accordance with CSA Standard C22.1, Canadian Electrical code, Part 1, and local electrical code requirements. Install only per installation instructions provided in the literature package for this oven.

•    User Servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the manuals. All other servicing should be done only by a qualified technician. This reduces the risk of personal injury and damage to the oven.

•    Ask your dealer to recommend a qualified technician and an authorized repair service. Know how to disconnect the power to the oven at the circuit breaker or fuse box in case of an emergency.

•    Never modify or alter the construction of an oven by removing the leveling legs, panels, wire covers, anti-tip brackets/screws, or any other part of the oven.

•    Remove the oven door from any unused oven if it is to be stored or discarded.

•    Be sure to have an appropriate foam-type fire extinguisher available, visible, and easily accessible located near the appliance.


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. Visually check that burner has lit. Then adjust the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.

•    To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of the utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface burners.

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

•    Glazed cooking utensils — Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils 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.

•    Air curtain or other overhead range hoods, which operate by blowing a downward air flow on to a range, shall not be used in conjunction with gas ranges other than when the hood and range have been designed, tested and listed by an independent test laboratory for use in combination with each other.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
OVEN

   Never use your appliance for warming or heating the room.

   Use care when opening oven door, lower oven door, or warmer drawer (some models). Stand to the side of the oven 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 unobstructed. 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.

   Placement of Oven Racks – Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot, do not let potholders contact hot heating element in oven. Use potholders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition.Remove all cookware and utensils before moving the rack.

   Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. Broiler pans and inserts allow dripping fat to drain away from the high heat of the broiler. Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil; exposed fat and grease could ignite.

   Protective Liners – Do not use aluminum foil to line surface unit drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as suggested in the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in a risk of electric shock, or fire.

   Do not cook food on the oven bottom. Always cook in proper cookware and always use the oven racks.


IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR OVEN

   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

   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 or oven liner 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. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the gasket.

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

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS.

A WARNING

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

Personal injury or death from electrical shock may occur if the conversion to L.P. gas is not made by a qualified installer or electrician. Any additions, changes or conversions required in order for this appliance to satisfactorily meet the application needs must be made by a qualified technician.

If L.P. conversion is needed, contact your local L.P. Gas provider for assistance.


Control locations of the gas surface burners

Your 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. 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.


3 IMPORTANT

   The word REAR is stamped on the back of the burner grates to help assure that the proper end of the grates are placed to the rear of the cooktop.

   The grates are designed to rest inside the recess on the cooktop.

   To install burner grates, place grates flat-side down and align into the cooktop recess.

   Grates should rest flush against each other and against the sides of the recess.

Correct burner cap placement

Incorrect burner cap placement


Operating the gas surface controls

1.    Place cooking utensil on surface burner.

2.    Push the surface control knob in 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.)

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.

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.

Do not straddle cookware over two cooking surfaces unless the cookware is designed for that purpose such as griddles.

^ 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 lit room. Each cone of the flame should be steady and sharp. Clean burner if flame is yellow-orange.

Setting Surface Controls

Your gas appliance may be equipped with different sized surface burners. The ability to heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as the burner size increases. It is important to select cookware that is suitable for the amount and type of food being prepared.

To set surface burners:

1.    Place cooking utensil on center of surface burner grate. Be sure the cooking utensil sets stable on the burner grate.

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

3.    Release the surface control knob and rotate to the LITE position. Visually check that the burner is lit.

4.    Once the burner has a flame, push the control knob in and turn counterclockwise to the desired flame size. Use the control knob markings and adjust the flame as needed.

3 IMPORTANT

   Do not cook with the surface control knob left in the LITE position. The electronic ignitor will continue to spark if the control knob setting remains in the LITE position.

   When setting any surface control knob to the LITE position, all electronic surface ignitors will spark at the same time. However, only the surface burner you are setting will ignite.

   Never place or straddle a cooking utensil over two different surface cooking areas at the same time. This can cause uneven heating results.

   In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface burners can be lit manually. Use caution when lighting surface burners 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 push in and turn knob to desired setting.

   When operating the oven, it is possible for residual heat from the oven to build-up and over time to eventually transfer to the surface control knobs located directly above the oven door.

   Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on the cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels, or wooden spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the range cooktop.

   Do not place aluminum foil or any material that can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt they may permanently damage the cooktop surface.


Setting Double Ring Burner (some models)

The versatile Double Ring surface burner offers a complete range of gas surface settings from the same burner position.

At the lowest setting, only the burner’s inner ring is active, using a smaller flame perfect for simmering. The burner’s outer ring when set for HI will provide a gas flame that may be used to bring a large pan of liquid to boil quickly.

Operating the Double Ring Burner:

1.    Push right front surface burner control knob in and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF position and rotate to the LITE position.

2.    Visually check that both inner and outer rings for the Double Ring burner are lit (Figure 5). Once lit, turn the control counterclockwise and adjust to the desired flame size.

3.    When adjusting for a low or simmer type flame setting, continue to rotate the control knob counterclockwise from HI setting towards LO (Figure 6). When the knob is turned close enough towards the LO setting, the flame for the outer ring portion of the burner will turn off leaving only the inner burner with a flame for simmering (Figure 5). Make any further flame adjustments as needed..

Do not place aluminum foil, or any material that can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt they may permanently damage the cooktop surface.

Home Canning

Be sure to read and observe all the following points when home canning with your appliance. Check with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) website and be sure to read all the information they have available as well as follow recommendations for home canning procedures.

   Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning.

   Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom.

   Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed 1 inch beyond the surface element markings or burner.

   Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more quickly.

   Use the highest heat setting when first bringing the water to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest possible setting to maintain that boil.

   Never place or straddle a cooking utensil over two different surface cooking areas at the same time unless the cooktop is designed for such a purpose.


Oven vent location

The oven vent is located under the backguard in the rear of the cooktop. When the oven is on, warm air passes through this vent. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good baking results. While the oven is in operation, it is normal for steam or moisture to appear near the vent.

Important: Do not block oven vent.

A CAUTION
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using the oven. When cooking, the oven interior and exterior, oven racks and cooktop will become very hot which can cause burns.
3 IMPORTANT
Remove all oven racks and clean according to instructions provided in the Care & Cleaning section of this manual. Never pick up hot oven racks or parts.

All oven racks should be removed before a self clean operation. Racks left in the oven during the high heat of the self clean function can easily discolor.

The ability of the racks to easily slide in and out along the rack positions may also be affected.

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).

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.

Type of oven racks

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 step down positions from the standard flat rack design. The offset design positions the base of the rack about % of a rack position lower than the flat rack and may be used in most oven rack positions.

3 IMPORTANT

Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom or any other parts of the range with aluminum foil. Doing so will alter heat distribution and may cause permanent damage to the oven interior.

Protective Liners — Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock or fire.

During self clean the oven temperatures will be hot enough to melt foil.

5.    To return to the time of day display, press and hold both the light and clock icons at the same time for a few seconds until the display chimes and fades back to showing the time of day.


Setting PowerPlus™ Preheat

The PowerPlus™ Preheat feature uses the convection fan to quickly bring the oven up to the set temperature. Use powerplus preheat for single rack items only and place food in center of oven.

Important: When baking delicate items like cakes and cookies use the regular bake or convection bake mode.

To set powerplus preheat:

1.    Turn the oven mode selector to POWERPLUS PREHEAT. The oven mode light will turn on.

2.    Turn the oven temperature selector to the desired temperature. The oven temperature light will blink and an acceptance chime will sound. The convection fan will turn on after 6 minutes and remain on as a convection bake. The preheat light will stay on until preheating is finished. Once the set temperature is reached the control will chime alerting the user that the oven is preheated.

3.    When finished baking turn both oven selectors to the OFF position.

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.

   The convection fan will be on during preheat and then turn off and on occasionally as needed.

   For best results when baking cakes using two oven racks, place racks in positions 3 (offset rack) and 5 (flat rack) Figure 12.

   When baking using two oven racks, position cookware as shown in Figure 13. 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.

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

Figure 12: Rack positions Figure 13: Pan spacing

Use the bake function whenever a recipe calls for normal baking. When the set bake temperature is reached the control will sound a chime to alert that the oven is fully preheated.

Bake may be set for any temperature between (170°F 77°C) and 550°F (288°C).

To set BAKE for oven temperature of 350°F:

1.    Be sure to arrange racks to the desired positions for the item(s) to be baked.

2.    Turn the oven mode selector to the BAKE position.

3.    Turn the oven temperature selector to 350°F.

4.    The PREHEAT and the oven temperature light will turn on and sound an acceptance tone. The oven will begin heating.

5.    When the set temperature is reached the PREHEAT light will turn off and a reminder chime will sound alerting you to place food in oven. Set either timer to keep track of actual cooking time if necessary.

6.    When finished baking, be sure to return both the temperature selector knob and the oven mode knob to the OFF positions.

Note: Do not open oven door too often. Doing so reduces oven temperature and may extend cooking time.The convection fan will start after the oven has been heating for 6 minutes. It will stop each time the oven door is opened.


Setting Convection Bake

Convection Cooking

Figure 15:

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. The convection fan will turn on after 6 minutes and remain on during the convection baking process.

The convection function uses a fan to circulate the oven heat uniformly and continuously around the oven (Figure 14). This improved heat distribution allows for fast, even cooking and browning results. It also gives better baking results when using two oven racks at the same time.

Benefits of convection cooking:

   Multiple rack baking.

   Some foods may cook faster.

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 the cooking temperature using the Convection Convert feature. Please see “Setting Convection Convert” on page 18 for further instructions 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 3 with offset rack and 5 using flat rack (See Figure 14).

•    When baking using two oven racks, position cookware as shown in Figure 15. 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.

•    Do not open oven door too often. Doing so reduces oven temperature and may extend cooking time.

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

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.

To set the oven for convection bake and temperature to 350°F:

1.    Arrange interior oven racks.

2.    Turn the oven mode selector to CONVECT BAKE.

3.    Turn the oven temperature selector to 350°F.

The oven temperature light will blink for a few seconds before sounding a chime confirming the setting. The convection fan will turn on 6 minutes after the oven begins heating. Once the oven reaches the set temperature the oven will sound a chime indicating the food items can be placed in the oven.

When finished baking, be sure to return both the temperature selector knob and the oven mode knob to the OFF positions.

A WARNING

Should an oven fire occur, do not open oven door, 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.

Setting Convection Convert

This feature must be set before selecting the oven mode and oven temperature by using the user preference setting in the oven display.

Convection convert automatically converts a standard baking recipe for convection baking. Convection convert may only be used with a convection bake cooking mode. Because convection baking generally cooks food faster than normal baking, food items should be checked for doneness before the suggested normal recipe cook times.

To set convection convert:

1.    The oven temperature selector must be in the OFF position. Turn the oven mode selector to CONVECT BAKE.

2.    Press and hold both the oven light icon and the clock icon for about 3 seconds until Aut° (Automatic convection convert) appears in the display.

3.    Press either the — or + key until ON appears.

4.    Turn the oven mode selector to the OFF position. The oven will accept the convection convert setting with an acceptance chime and the control will return to display the time of day. The convection bake function will now automatically convert normal baking temperatures for convection baking.

5.    To change back to regular convection baking, repeat the same steps in this process and press the + or – key until OFF appears. Once the control accepts the change with a chime, turn the oven mode selector to OFF.

Setting Convection Roast

Convection roast 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.

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. 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.

   Do not open the oven door often. Doing so will reduce the temperature in the oven and may increase the cooking time necessary for best results.

   It is not recommended to roast chicken on a roasting rack. Use a deep pan and place on rack position 1 (offset rack).

To set oven for convection roasting:

1.    Place meat on roasting rack and place in oven.

2.    Turn oven mode selector to CONV ROAST.

3.    Turn oven temperature selector to desired roasting temperature.

Note: Preheating the oven for convection roasting is not necessary. At this time you may want to set TIMER as a reminder for checking food.

OVEN CONTROLS

Using the Broil Feature    To set broil:

Use the broil feature to cook meats requiring direct exposure to radiant heat for optimum browning results.

Caution: Always use pot holders or oven mitts when working with a hot oven. When broiling, the oven interior, oven racks and cooktop will become hot enough to cause burns. Do not use the broiler pan without the insert. The insert is slotted and allows the grease to drain away from the meat and the high heat of the broiler into the broiler pan. Do not cover the broil pan or insert with aluminum foil; the exposed grease could ignite.

WARNING! If an oven fire occurs, turn oven off. 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 can be explosive and water can cause a grease fire to spread possibly causing personal injury.To prevent grease splattering, use the broil pan and insert when broiling.

1.    Arrange oven racks while oven is cool.

2.    Turn the mode selector knob to broil. The corresponding indicator light will flash.

3.    Turn the temperature selector knob to broil. The indicator light will turn on and remain lit. For optimum browning results, preheat oven for 2 minutes before adding food.

4.    Place the broiler pan on the rack. Be sure to center the broiler pan directly under the broiler flame. Broil with door closed. Always pull the oven rack out to the stop position before turning or removing food.

5.    Turn the temperature and the selector knobs to OFF when cooking is completed or to cancel broil.

Recommended Broiling Times

Depending on the type, the thickness, and the desired doneness of meat, it might be necessary to increase or decrease recommended broiling times or adjust the broiling pan to different rack positions. If a broiler pan and insert are not supplied with this appliance, they may be purchased from frigidaire.com.

Meat Probe

Use the probe feature for best results when cooking foods such as roasts, hams or poultry, using a probe to check internal temperature is the safest method to ensure properly cooked food. Before using the meat probe read the important information listed here:

3 IMPORTANT 2 1


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 (Figure 20). For best results, do not allow the probe to contact bone, fat, gristle, or the cookware.

•    For bone-in ham or lamb, insert the probe into the center of lowest large muscle or joint.

•    For meatloaf 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 into the thickest part of the breast.

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 into the probe receptacle while the oven is still cool. The receptacle is located on the upper left front oven cavity wall.

When the meat probe reaches the target temperature, the oven will automatically switch to keep warm (170°F) and remain on for up to 3 hours before turning off automatically. The display will continue to show the meat probe temperature until either keep warm is canceled or by disconnecting the meat probe from the receptacle. Once turned off, the probe icon and temperature will fade from the display.

Important: If the meat probe temperature should exceed the maximum allowable temperature, the oven control will beep and HOT will appear in the display for 40 seconds to notify that the probe temperature is too high.

Setting Keep Warm

Keep Warm maintains a temperature of 170°F (77°C) for keeping oven baked foods at serving temperature until canceled. The feature may be used with BAKE, CONVECT BAKE, CONVECT ROAST, and POWERPLUS PREHEAT.

Keep warm tips:

•    Always start with hot food. Do not use the keep warm feature to heat cold food.

•    Food in heat-safe glass and glass ceramic containers may need higher temperature settings compared to food in regular containers. Avoid repeated openings of the oven, it will allow hot air to escape and the food to cool.

•    Aluminum foil may be used to cover food to increase moisture content.

To set keep warm:

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

2.    Turn the oven mode selector to BAKE, CONVECT BAKE, CONVECT ROAST, or POWERPLUS PREHEAT.

3.    Set the oven temperature selector to KEEP WARM.

4.    The indicator light will blink and then an acceptance chime will sound.

Adjusting the 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.

3. Using the + or – key in the bottom of the display, press until the desired temperature change (offset) is reached. The display will change ± 5° with each key press to a maximum of + 35° or a minimum of — 35°F.


 

 

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 by accessing the UPO (User Programmable Offset).

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:

Important: Make sure both the oven mode selector and the oven temperature selector are in the OFF position.

1.    Press and hold both the light icon and the clock icon at the same time for a few seconds until the display sounds an acceptance chime. AUd should appear in the display.

2.    Press the + key in the upper part of the display until UPO appears and the default setting of 0° (or the last set temperature offset) is showing.

If a lower temperature offset is desired, press the — key in the bottom of the display until the desired lower temperature appears.

Once the new offset appears in the display, release the key and the control will accept the change.

4. To return the display to normal, press and hold both the oven light icon and the clock icon at the same time until an acceptance chime sounds. The display will return to show the time of day.

^ NOTE

Changing the UPO will not affect the broil or self clean temperatures.


I I □ n U I u


Self Cleaning

A self cleaning oven cleans itself with 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.

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

3 IMPORTANT

Adhere to the following self clean precautions:

   Do not use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any part of the oven interior.

   Do not clean the oven door gasket (Figure 26). The woven material of the oven door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or remove the gasket.

   Do not use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so could cause damage.

   Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils, and any aluminum foil. These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures and may melt.

   Completely remove all oven racks and any accessories. If the oven racks are not removed, they will lose their special coating properties and no longer slide in and out of the oven cavity easily.

   Remove any excessive spills. Any spills on the oven bottom should be wiped-up and removed 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.

   Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door gasket, and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. These areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water. These areas are shown in white (Figure 26).

A CAUTION

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

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

Do not force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution when opening the door after the self cleaning cycle is complete. The oven may still be very hot.

A CAUTION

To avoid possible burns, use care when opening the oven door after the self cleaning cycle. Stand to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow hot air or steam to escape.

Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom, or any other part of the range 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).

OVEN CONTROLS

Setting Clean

If you are planning to use the oven directly after a 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 clean cycle and shut off automatically:

1. Turn both the oven mode and oven temperature selectors to CLEAN. The display will show a 3 hour time (normal clean) and the — and + keys.

2. If a 3 hour clean is desired, the control will accept the time within 3 seconds. However, the user may select a 2 or 4 hour clean by using the – or + keys to change to the desired clean time and then allow the control to accept the change.

If the oven door is opened as this time the display will show CLO to indicate that the door must be closed before the clean cycle can begin. If the door remains open for more than 3 minutes, the clean function will be canceled.

When the oven is set to run the self clean cycle, the motor door lock will begin locking the oven door. Do not open the oven door while the lock motor is running or when any locking indicators or displays are showing. The oven door is completely locked in about 15 seconds.


3. Once the door is closed the time of day will be visible along with the selected clean time and the door lock icon will be visible in the display.

4. During the clean cycle the time of day remains in the display and the time remaining in the clean cycle will also be active.(Figure 32)

5. When the clean cycle ends the oven will be too hot for the door to unlock until the oven cools to a safe temperature. This may take up to an hour. During this time the display will show Hot along with the door lock icon.

6. At this point CLn will appear in the display and the lock icon will blink and the control will signal the end of the clean cycle with a chime. The internal oven temperature will still be hot enough to cause burns.

Caution: Be careful when opening and stand to the side to allow any steam and heat to escape.

Note: Once the clean cycle ends the oven will not be available for another clean for 4 hours.

To cancel a self clean before it ends:

Turn both the oven selector knob and the oven temperature knob to the OFF position.


Cleaning Various Parts of Your 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

Aluminum and Vinyl

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

Painted and plastic control

knobs

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

Painted body parts

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

Painted decorative trims

cause damage to the appliance. Do not use other liquid cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or paper towels – they will damage the finish.

Surface burners

Burner grates

   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.

   For details on cleaning surface burners and grates see “Cleaning the cooktop and surface burners” om page 29.

   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)

Oven interior (Porcelain)

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.

Oven door gasket

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.

CARE AND CLEANING

A CAUTION

Be sure the oven is unplugged and all parts are cool before replacing oven light.

Cleaning the cooktop and surface burners

To avoid possible burns turn off all of the surface burners and allow them to cool.

Any additions, changes or conversions required in order for this appliance to satisfactorily meet the application needs must be made by an authorized qualified agency.

Routinely clean the cooktop. Wipe with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry to avoid scratches. Keeping the surface burner head ports and slots clean will prevent improper ignition and an uneven flame.

To clean recessed and contoured areas of cooktop

If a spill occurs on or in the recessed or contoured areas, blot up spill with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry.

To clean burner grates

   Clean when the grates are cool. Use nonabrasive plastic scrubbing pad and mild abrasive cleanser.

   Food soils containing acids may affect the finish. Clean immediately after the grates are cool. Thoroughly dry grates immediately following cleaning.

To clean burner caps

   Remove caps from burner heads after they have cooled. Clean heavy soils with a plastic scrubbing pad and absorbent cloth. Thoroughly dry burner caps immediately following cleaning including the bottom and inside of cap.

   Do not use abrasive cleaners. Do not clean burner caps in the dishwasher. Do not operate surface burners without burner caps properly in place.

To clean the surface burner heads

For proper gas flow it may be necessary to clean the burner head and slots. First use a clean damp cloth to soak up any spills. Remove any food from between the burner slots using a small nonabrasive brush like a toothbrush and wipe up using a damp cloth. For stubborn soils located in the slots, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean. The electrode must be carefully cleaned. Take care not to hit the electrode with any thing hard or it could be damaged.

To clean the burner head ignition ports

Each burner head has a small ignition port (Figure 35). Should you experience ignition problems it may be that this port hole is partially blocked with soil. With the burner head in place, use a small wire gauge needle or the end of a paper clip to clear the ignition port.

The interior oven light is located at the rear of the oven

cavity and are covered with a glass shield. The glass shield

must be in place whenever the oven is in use (Figure 36).

1.    Turn electrical power off at the main source or unplug the appliance.

2.    Remove interior oven light shield after removing the wire holder by carefully moving the wire to the side of the glass shield. The tension from the wire holds the glass shield in place.

3.    Pull the shield straight out. Do not twist or turn.

4.    Replace bulb with a new appliance bulb. Replace glass oven light shield. Replace wire holder.

5.    Turn power back on again at the main source (or plug the appliance back in). Be sure to reset the time of day on the clock.

   When the meat probe is set correctly, the control will signal an alert when the internal food temperature reaches the desired set target temperature. When active, the internal food temperature 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.

Note: If the meat probe is plugged while the oven is in a

function which allows probe cooking, it may be set the

following way:

1.    Cancel the active cooking function. The display will show the meat probe icon and temperature 000°.

2.    The meat probe temperature can now be set and the control will sound an acceptance chime. The oven mode indicator light will blink until an allowable cooking function is selected.
