Oven Characteristics

Every oven has its own characteristics. You may
find that the cooking times and temperatures
you were accustomed to with your previous
oven may need to be altered slightly with the
new oven. Please expect some differences with
the new appliance. Compare your recipes with
the baking chart on page 10 or refer to a reliable
cookbook for proper recommendations. It is
normal to notice some differences between this
appliance and your old one.

Pilotless Ignition

Your Maytag wall oven is equipped with
pilotless ignition. Heat from the Glow Bar
ignitor lights the oven burner. With this type of
ignition system, the oven will not operate

during a power failure or if the wall oven is

disconnected from the wall outlet. No attempt
should be made to operate the oven during a
power failure.

Oven Vent

The oven vent is located between the control
panel and oven door. Do not block this opening.
It is important that the flow of hot air from the
oven and fresh air to the burner be
unrestricted. Do not touch the vent opening or
nearby surfaces during oven operation as they
may become hot.

Oven Light

The oven light is turned on by pushing the
rocker switch marked OVEN LIGHT on the
control panel.

Always preheat the oven if called for in the
recipe or on the package directions. Preheating

necessary to preheat for roasting.

temperature is reached (approximately 10 to 15
minutes). A beep will sound when the oven is
