Hot Surface Hazard

Accessible parts may become hot when in use.

To avoid burns and scalds, keep children away.

Use oven mitts or other protection when handling hot surfaces such as oven shelves or dishes.

Use care when opening the oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food.

Do not touch heating elements or interior surfaces of the oven. Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in colour. Interior surfaces of an oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of the oven until they have had sufficient time to cool.

Other surfaces of the appliance may become hot enough to cause burns among these surfaces are the oven vent, the surface near the oven vent, and the oven door.

Failure to follow this advice could result in burns and scalds.

Household appliances are not intended to be played with by children.

Do not leave children alone. Children should not be left alone or unattended in the area where the appliance is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance.

Children or persons with a disability which limits their ability to use the appliance, should have a responsible person to instruct them in its use. The instructor should be satisfied that they can use the appliance without danger to themselves or their surroundings.

During use the appliance becomes hot. Care should be taken to avoid touching

heating elements inside the oven. Accessible parts may become hot during use. To avoid burns young children should be kept away.

Do not use your appliance for warming or heating the room.

Do not place heavy objects on the oven door.

Wear proper apparel. Do not wear loose fitting or hanging garments when using the appliance. They could ignite or melt if they touch an element or hot surface and you could be burned.

User servicing: do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.

Do not use water on grease fires. Smother the fire or flame or use a dry chemical or foam type extinguisher.

Use only dry oven mitts or potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces could result in burns from steam. Do not let potholders touch hot areas or heating elements. Do not use a towel or a bulky cloth for a potholder. It could catch fire.

Do not heat unopened food containers. They can build up pressure that may cause the container to burst and result in injury.

Safe food handling: leave food in the oven for as short a time as possible before and after cooking. This is to avoid contamination by organisms which may cause food poisoning. Take particular care during warm weather.

Always keep oven vents
