Oven Temperature Control

IMPORTANT: Do not use a thermometer to measure oven

Sabbath Mode

(on some models)

The Sabbath Mode sets the oven to remain on in a Bake setting
until turned off. A Timed Bake can also be set to keep the oven
on for only part of the Sabbath. The Oven Control Lockout
Feature (if present) will be disabled during the Sabbath Mode.
After the Sabbath Mode is set no tones will sound, the display
will not show the temperature, the Kitchen Timer Mode will be
canceled (if active) and only the following pads will function:

“+” or “-” keypads (if present)

“More” and “Less” keypads (if present)


When the oven door is opened or closed, the oven light will not
turn on or off and the heating elements will not turn on or off

When power is restored after a power failure, the oven will return
to Sabbath Mode and remain Sabbath compliant with the bake
elements off until the Cancel keypad is pressed.

Pressing the Cancel keypad at any time returns the oven to the
normal cooking mode (not Sabbath Mode compliant).

Before entering the Sabbath Mode, it must be decided if the oven
light is to be on or off for the entire Sabbath Mode period. If the
light is on when entering Sabbath Mode, it will remain on for the
entire time Sabbath Mode is in use. If the light is off when
entering Sabbath Mode, it will remain off for the entire time
Sabbath Mode is in use. Opening the oven door or pressing the
Oven Light keypad will not affect the oven light once Sabbath
Mode has been entered.

If the oven has the Convection Bake feature, the oven light is
controlled by a separate Oven Light switch on the console. If the
oven light is on when entering the Sabbath Mode, it will remain
on for the entire time Sabbath Mode is in use. For the oven light
to be off during the Sabbath Mode, the light bulb must be
removed from the oven prior to entering the Sabbath Mode. Not
performing these steps will cause the oven light to turn on when
the oven door is opened, resulting in the oven being not Sabbath
