Adjusting the Oven Thermostat

After using your oven the first few times, it may
seem hotter or colder than your previous oven.
Oven thermostats, over a period of years, may
drift from the factory setting and timing
differences of 5 to 10 minutes are not unusual
between an old and a new oven. You may be
inclined to think that the new oven is not
performing correctly; however, your new oven
has been set correctly at the factory and is more
likely to be accurate that the oven it replaced.

If you think the oven should be hotter or cooler,
you can adjust it yourself. To decide how much
to change the thermostat, set the oven
temperature 25° F higher or lower than the
temperature in your recipe, then bake. The
results of the “test” should give you an idea of
how much the thermostat should be changed.

To adjust the thermostat:
1. Press the OVEN TEMP pad.

2. Press the ▲ or ▼ pad and select an oven

temperature between 500° F and 550° F.

3. Press and hold the OVEN TEMP pad for

about four seconds. The display will change
to the oven adjustment display which reads

4. The oven thermostat can be adjusted up to

+35° F hotter or -35° F cooler. Use the
▲ or ▼ pad to select the desired change in
the display.

5. When you have made the adjustment, press

the CANCEL pad to return to the time of day
display. Use your oven as you would

NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the Broil
temperature. The new temperature will be
remembered if the power is interrupted.

Fault Codes

Your oven is equipped with an electronic
control featuring built-in, self-diagnostic
software. This software continuously monitors
the control to ensure safe and proper operation.
If the software should detect a questionable
situation, a FAULT CODE (F plus a number)
will appear in the display and continuous beeps
will sound.

A fault code indicates that there may be a
functional error. As a safety precaution, the
control will automatically cancel the program.
Follow the procedures described below to check
the wall oven.

During Normal Oven Cooking:
If a fault code appears in the display, press the
CANCEL pad and reprogram the cooking
operation. If the fault code reappears, call a
qualified service technician. Do not use the
oven until the appliance has been serviced.
