Adjusting the Oven Temperature
Your oven thermostat has been precisely set at the factory. This setting may differ from your previous oven, however,
so your recipe times may not give you the results you expect. If you think that the oven is cooking too hot or cool for
your recipe times, you can adjust the thermostat so that the oven cooks hotter or cooler than the temperature
To Adjust Oven Temperature:
1. Press and hold (_ pad for 8 seconds. The display now indicates the amount of degrees offset between the
original factory temperature setting and the current temperature setting. If the oven control has the original factory
calibration, the display will read "0".
2. The temperature can now be adjusted up or down 35°F or 19°C, in I°F or 1°C steps by pushing and holding the
A or v. Adjust until the desired amount of degrees offset appears in the display. When lowering the oven tem-
perature, a minus sign (-) will appear before the number to indicate that the oven will be cooler by the displayed
amount of degrees.
3. When you have made the desired adjustment, wait 5 seconds and the timer will go back to the time of day display.
Note: Oven temperature adjustment made will not change the Self-Cleaning feature temperature.
