Safety Instructions



Use care when opening door. Let hot air
or steam escape before removing or replac­
ing food.

For proper oven operation and perfor­
mance, do not block or obstruct oven vent

cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot, do not let
potholder contact hot heating element in oven.

Heating Elements

NEVER touch surface or oven heating elements, areas
near elements, or interior surfaces of oven.

Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in
color. Areas near surface elements and interior surfaces of
an oven may become hot enough to cause bums. During and
after use, do not touch or let clothing or other flammable
materials contact heating elements, areas near elements, or
interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient time
to cool.

Other potentially hot surfaces include: Cooktop, areas fac­
ing the cooktop, oven vent, and surfaces near the vent open­
ing, oven door, areas around the door and oven window.

Child Safety

pervised in area where appliance is in
use or is still hot.

NEVER allow children to sit or stand
on any part of the appliance as they
could be injured or burned.

CAUTION: NEVER store items of in­
terest to children in cabinets above an
appliance or on backguard of a range.
Children climbing on appliance, door
or drawer to reach items could damage
the appliance or be burned or seriously



Children must be taught that the appliance and utensils in
or on it can be hot. Let hot utensils cool in a safe place, out
of reach of small children. Children should be taught that
an appliance is not a toy. Children should not be allowed
to play with controls or other parts of the unit.

Ventilating Hoods

or other flammable materials from accumulating on hood
or filter and to avoid grease fires.
