Special Door Care Instructions - Most oven doors contain glass that can break. Read the following recommendations:
1. Do not close the oven door until all the oven racks are fully in place.
2. Do not hit the glass with pots, pans, or any other object.
3. Scratching, hitting, jarring or stressing the glass may weaken its structure causing an increased risk of breakage at a

later time.


the Oven Light (some models)

For models equipped with the interior oven light, the light bulb is located at the
rear of the oven and is covered with a glass shield held by a wire holder (See Fig.

To replace the oven light bulb:









Turn electrical power off at the main source orunplug the range.

Press wire holder to one side to release the glass shield.
Replace bulb with a new 40 watt appliance bulb.
Replace glass shield over bulb and snap wire holder into place.

Turn power back on again at the main source (or plug the range back in).
The clock will then need to be reset. To reset, see Setting the Clock and
Minute Timer in this Use & Care Guide.


j Be sure the range is unplugged and all partsare COOL before replacing

oven light. Wear a leather-faced glove for protection against possible broken glass.
