Electric range ovens are usually insulated by 21/4 lbs. or 3 lbs.
(density) of fiberglass insulation. Some ranges have a thicker oven
insulation to maintain reasonable sur¬face temperatures on the
main top panel. The range obtains good results because the design
of the main top panel has provided for a deep air space between
the oven-top insulation retainer and the main top. This design restricts
heat transfer to the working surface of the top panel.
Oven Vent. Because air expands when it is heated,
all ovens must be vented. This is usually done through the right
rear surface unit. In oven cooking, the heated oven air absorbs
moisture in addition to expanding. To prevent the moisture-laden
oven vapor from condensing on the sides of the oven or on the front
of the range, the oven door must be sealed at the top and have a
gap of approximately I/2 " at the bottom so that sufficient
air can circulate. through the oven and discharge the moist vapor
through the oven vent. On most ranges, an aluminum oven shield seals
the open¬ing between the frame and the main top panel to prevent
condensation of the hot moist vapors which escape from the side
of the oven door. If moisture does condense on the front of the
range frame around the oven door, it is an indication of an improper
oven door top seal or a restricted or clogged oven vent.
Oven Door Broil Position. In ovens equipped with
top heat for broiling, provision is always made for leaving the
oven door ajar during the broiling period. This gives the effect
of true charcoal broiling instead of high temperature baking. Some
ranges have oven door hinges equipped with the broil stop position.
Others have a broil stop mounted on the broil unit. This stop should
be turned to the forward position to hold the oven door ajar for
broiling. When the oven door is to be left ajar, the drip tray should
be pulled out about 11/2" to prevent the oven heat from discoloring
the plastic knobs which are directly above the oven door
Oven Units. The oven units used in electric ranges
are generally of the open-coil type. In contrast to surface-unit
cooking for which contact-heating is most desirable, oven cooking
requires radiant heat for optimum performance.
The bake unit ( always located in the bottom of
the oven) is covered by a baffle to provide protection from food
spillage. This baffle also absorbs radiant heat from the bake-unit
heating element and helps distribute and equalize the heat in the
oven. The oven units can be pulled. straight out of the oven. They
need be removed only when the user desires to give the oven a thorough
cleaning. The oven units themselves should never be placed in water,
for they require no cleaning. The bake-unit baffle, which may be
subjected to food spillage, can be removed from the bake unit for
