ProblemSolution
Poor baking results.• Many factors affect baking results. Make sure the proper oven rack position is used. Center food in the oven and space pans to allow air to circulate. Allow the oven to preheat to the set temperature before placing food in the oven. Try adjusting the recipe’s recommended temperature or baking time. If you feel the oven is too hot or cool, see "Adjusting Oven Temperature" section in this Use & Care Guide.
Appliance is not level.• Be sure floor is level, strong & stable enough to adequately support range.
• If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
• Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven rack. Adjust leveling legs at base of appliance until the rack is level.
• Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear not level. Be sure cabinets are square & have sufficient room for appliance clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily. Appliance must be accessible for service.• Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly. Contact builder or installer to make appliance accessible.
• Carpet interferes with appliance. Provide sufficient space so appliance can be lifted over carpet.
Surface element too hot or not hot enough.• Incorrect control setting. Be sure the correct control is ON for the element that you are attempting to use.
Surface element does not heat.• Lightweight or warped pans used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or heavyweight cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped pans. Cookware materials and weight of the material affect heating. Heavy & medium-weight pans heat evenly. Because lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily.
Entire appliance does not operate.• The time of day is not set. The time of day must first be set in order to operate the oven. See "Setting the clock" in the Setting oven controls section.
• Make sure cord/plug is plugged correctly into outlet.
• Service wiring is not complete. Contact your dealer, installing agent or authorized service agent.
• Electrical power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric company for service.
Oven portion of appliance does not operate.• Be sure the oven controls are set properly for the desired cooking feature. See Setting Oven Controls in this manual or read the instructions "Entire appliance does not operate" in this checklist.
Oven light does not work.• Be sure the light is secure in the socket. Also see "Changing & replacing the oven light" section.
Self-cleaning cycle does not work.• Oven control not set properly. Follow instructions under Self-cleaning.
• Self-Cleaning cycle was interrupted. Follow steps under "Stopping or Interrupting a Self-cleaning cycle" under Self-cleaning.
Soil not completely removed after self- cleaning cycle.• Failure to clean bottom, front top of oven, frame of oven or door area outside oven seal. These areas are not in the self-cleaning area, but get hot enough to burn on residue. Clean these areas before the self-cleaning cycle is started. Burned-on residue can be cleaned with a stiff nylon brush and water or a nylon scrubber. Be careful not to damage the oven gasket.
Oven smokes excessively during broiling.• Incorrect setting. Follow broiling instructions in Setting Oven Controls.
• Make sure oven door is opened to broil stop position.
• Meat too close to the broil element. Reposition the broil rack to provide proper clearance between the meat & the element. Preheat the broil element for searing.
• Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut remaining fatty edges to prevent curling, but do not cut into lean.
• Broiler pan and insert wrong side up and grease not draining. Always place grid on the broiler pan with ribs up & slots down to allow grease to drip into pan (some models).
• Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary when broiling frequently. Old grease or food spatters cause excessive smoking.
Flames inside oven or smoking from oven vent.• Excessive spillovers in oven. For example this will happen for pie spillovers or large amounts of grease left on the oven bottom. Wipe up excessive spillovers before starting oven. If flames or excessive smoke are present see "About broiling" in the Setting Oven Controls section.
Oven control panel beeps & displays any F code error (for example F10, F11,F13, F14, F15, F30, F31 or F90).• Oven control has detected a fault or error condition. Press CANCEL to clear the display & stop beeping. Try the bake or broil feature again. If the F code error repeats, remove power from appliance, wait 5 minutes and then repower appliance and set clock for the time of day. Try the bake or broil feature again. If the fault recurs, record fault and call for service.
Scratches or abrasions on cooktop surface.• Coarse particles such as salt or sand between cooktop and utensils can cause scratches. Be sure cooktop surface and bottoms of utensils are clean before usage. Small scratches do not affect cooking and will become less visible with time.
• Cleaning materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been used. See "Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance in the Care and Cleaning section of this Use & Care Guide.
• Cookware with rough bottom has been used. Use smooth, flat-bottomed cookware.
Metal marks on the cooktop.• Sliding or scraping of metal utensils on cooktop surface. Do not slide metal utensils on cooktop surface. Use a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning creme to remove the marks. See "Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance" in the Care and Cleaning section.
Brown streaks or specks on cooktop surface.• Boilovers are cooked onto surface. Use razor blade scraper to remove soil. See "Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance" in the Care & Cleaning section.
Areas of discoloration with metallic sheen on cooktop surface.• Mineral deposits from water and food. Remove using a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning creme. Use cookware with dean, dry bottoms.
