Important Safety Instructions

6

•  ELECTRICAL GROUNDING IS 

REQUIRED. It is the customer’s 
responsibility:

1. To contact a qualified electrician.
2. To ensure that the electrical system is 

adequate and in compliance with the 
National Electrical Code ANSI / NFPA 
70 Electrical Code – latest edition – or 
the CANADIAN ELECTRICAL CODE, 
C22.11 – 1982 and C22.2 No. 
01982 – or latest edition – and all local 
codes and ordinances.

•  Always check that the controls are in the 

“zero” (off) position when the oven is not 
in use.

•  Do not attempt to repair or replace any 

part of this appliance unless specifically 
recommended in this manual. All other 
servicing should be done by a qualified 
technician.

•  Never use any part of the oven for 

storage. Flammable materials can ignite 
and plastic items may melt or burst into 
flame.

•  Do not hang articles on any part of the 

appliance or place anything against the 
oven. Some fabrics are extremely 
flammable and could catch fire.

•  DO NOT USE ALUMINUM FOIL TO 

LINE ANY PART OF THE OVEN. Using 
a foil liner can result in an electrical 
shock or fire or obstruct the flow of heat 
and air. Foil is an excellent heat insulator, 
allowing heat to get trapped under it. 
This can interfere with cooking and can 
damage the enamel of the oven.

•  Keep aluminum foil from touching the 

heating elements.

•  DO NOT HEAT UNOPENED FOOD 

CONTAINERS: A buildup of pressure 
can cause the containers to burst.

•  DO NOT USE FLAMMABLE 

PRODUCTS TO CLEAN THE OVEN.

•  Do not clean, rub, damage or remove 

the oven door gasket. It is essential for a 
good, tight seal to form during baking 
and the self-clean cycle. Replace the 
oven door gasket if it becomes 
damaged or encrusted with food 
residue.

•  ONLY QUALIFIED SERVICE 

PERSONNEL SHOULD PERFORM 
REPAIRS. Service personnel must 
disconnect the power supply before 
servicing this unit.
