Keep this guide handy where the electric ignition oven during an electrical you can refer to it , especially during the first weeks of power failure . using your new range . The oven or broiler cannot be lit during a power failure . Gas will not flow unless the glow bar is hot . If the oven is in use when a power failure occurs , the oven burner shuts off and cannot be re - lit until power is restored . This is because the flow of gas is automatically stopped and will not resume when power is restored until the glow bar has reached operating temperature .

These droplets are harmless and will evaporate as the oven continues to heat up . Oven Vents The oven is vented through duct openings at the rear * Handles of pots and pans on the cooktop may become hot if left too close to the vent . of the cooktop . See the Features section . Do not block these openings when cooking in the oven - - it is • Metal items will become very hot if they are left important that the flow of hot air fiom the oven and on the cooktop and could cause burns . fresh air to the oven burners be uninterrupted . • Do not leave any items on the cooktop .

Oven Shelves The shelves are designed with stop - locks so when placed correctly on the shelf supports , they will stop before coming completely out of the oven and will not tilt when you are removing food from them or placing food on them . When placing cookware on a shell pull the shelf out to the bump on the shelf support . Place the cookware on the shell then slide the shelf back into the oven . This will eliminate reaching into the hot oven . To remove a shelf from the oven , pull it toward you , tilt the front end upward and pull the shelf out . To replace , place the shelf on the shelf support with the stop - locks ( curved extension of the shelt ) facing up and toward the rear of the oven . Tilt up the front and push the shelf toward the back of the oven until it goes past the bump on the shelf support . Then lower the front of the shelf and push it all the way back . Shelf Positions The oven has five shelf supports for baking , roasting and broiling identified in this illustration as A ( bottom ) , B , C , D and E ( top ) . It also has a special low shelf position ( R ) for roasting extra large items , such as a large turkey - - the shelf is not designed to slide out at this position . Shelf positions for cooking are suggested in the Baking , Roasting and Broiling sections .

Preheating Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it . Preheat means Preheating is necessary for good results when baking bringing the oven up to the specified temperature cakes , cookies , pastry and breads . For most casseroles before putting the food in the oven . To preheat , set the and roasts , preheating is not necessary . For ovens oven at the correct temperature - - selecting a higher without a preheat indicator light or tone , preheat temperature does not shorten preheat time . 10 minutes . After the oven is preheated place the food in the oven as quickly as possible to prevent heat from escaping . Pan Placement Pans should not touch each other or the walls of the For even cooking and proper browning , there must be enough room for air circulation in the oven . Baking oven . Allow 1 - to 1 ½ - inch space between pans as well as t _ om the back of the oven , the door and the results will be better if baking pans are centered as much as possible rather than being placed to the front sides . If you need to use two shelves , stagger the pans or to the back of the oven . so one is not directly above the other . Baking Guides When using prepared baking mixes , follow package recipe or instructions for best baking results . Cookies Aluminum Foil When baking Never entirely cover a shelf with cookies , fiat cookie aluminum foil . sheets ( without This will disturb sides ) produce the heat better - looking cookies .

BAKING ( continued ) Pies Cakes For best results , For best browning bake pies in dark , when baking several 8 " or 9 " rough or dull pans to produce a cakes , stagger browner , crisper them so one pan crust . Stagger the is not directly above another . pies for most even browning . Frozen Warped or bent pies in foil pans pans will cause should be placed uneven baking on an aluminum results and poorly cookie sheet for baking since the shiny foil pan shaped products . A cake baked in a pan larger than reflects heat away from the pie crust ; the cookie the recipe recommends will usually be crisper , thinner sheet helps retain it . and drier than it should be . If baked in a pan smaller than recommended , it may be undercooked and batter may overflow . Baking Pans Use the proper baking pan . The type of finish on the pan determines the amount of browning that will occur . • Dark , rough or dull pans absorb heat resulting in a browner , crisper crust . Use this type for pies . • Shiny , bright and smooth pans reflect heat , resulting in a lighter , more delicate browning . Cakes and cookies require this type of pan . • Glass baking dishes also absorb heat . When baking in glass baking dishes , the temperature may need to be reduced by 25 ° F . • If you are using dark non - stick pans , you may find that you need to reduce the oven temperature 25 ° F . to prevent over - browning . Don't Peek Set the timer for the estimated cooking time and do DO NOT open the door to check until the minimum not open the door to look at your food . Most recipes time . Opening the oven door frequently during provide mininmm and maximum baking times such cooking allows heat to escape and makes baking times as " bake 30 - 40 minutes . " longer .

If lifting is observed , gradually reduce air shutter opening until flames are stabilized . The air adjustment shutter for the top ( broil ) burner is in the center of the rear wall of the oven . To remove the oven bottom : 1 . Remove the knurled screws holding down rear of the oven bottom . 2 . Grasp the oven bottom at finger slots on each side . 3 .
