must be placed in the rack position above the desired position of
the food. See the following illustration.

that no bakeware piece is directly over another.
Position racks before turning on the oven.
Do not move racks with bakeware on them.
Make sure racks are level.

ACCUBAKE Temperature Management System
The ACCUBAKE system electronically regulates the oven heat
When START is pressed, the oven will begin preheating. Once
100ºF (38ºC) is reached, the display temperature will increase as
the actual temperature of the oven increases. When the preheat
temperature is reached, a tone will sound, and the selected
temperature will appear on the display.
The time to preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) will be
approximately 10-15 minutes depending upon the model.
levels during preheat and bake to maintain a precise temperature
range for optimal cooking results. The bake and broil elements
cycle on and off in intervals. The bake element will glow red when
cycling on; the broil element will not. This feature is automatically
activated when the oven is in use.
Before baking and roasting, position racks according to
