Remove Shelves from the Oven

  1. Remove all the shelving, taking special care with the sliding shelf (some models only).
  2. To remove a sliding shelf, grip it at the front (making sure you are gripping the wire shelf and the sliding frame together), lift upwards and pull it out of the oven.

For your safety, the wire shelves and sliding frames are built together as one unit and are not separable. When placed properly on the side racks, the slides will prevent the wire shelves from tilting when pulled towards you.

Replace Shelving in your Preferred Positions

To replace a wire shelf:
  • Check the guard rail (as shown) to make sure the shelf is the right way up.
  • Slide it horizontally back along the side racks ensuring it is level and the stop notch is facing down.

Replacing a Sliding Shelf

To replace a full extension sliding shelf (some models only):


  • Position the shelf so that it is level, with the front bar toward you (as shown).
  • Check the guard rail (as shown) to ensure the shelf is the right way up.
  • Ensure the sliding frame is not extended.
  • Position the shelf on top of the side racks, so the rear shelf tag at the back of the sliding frame rests behind the side rack wire (as shown).
Important-Icon.png Ensure the sliding shelf is positioned on top of the side rack wires rather than between them.
  • Push the sliding shelf all the way to the back of the oven, until the front shelf tag drops into place behind the side rack wire.
  • We recommend placing the telescopic sliding shelf on position 2 or 4.
  • To prevent the tags from lifting off the side racks, take care to slide the shelves forward horizontally.
