Set the Probe

To set the probe:

  1. Begin preheating the oven to the desired oven temperature in the desired mode.
    • Do not use temperature probes in Broil Mode.
    • Do not plug the probe into the receptacle and let it rest on the oven rack or dangle while the oven preheats. This will damage the probe.
  2. Insert the probe into the thickest area of the food.
  3. When preheat is complete, place the food in the oven and insert the probe into the probe receptacle. Refer to the illustration below.
    • Probe and probe sensor cover become very hot; handle with a dry pot holder.
    • Do not let the probe touch the sides or door of the oven when in use.
  4. Close oven door.
  5. Touch PROBE.
  6. Touch SET to select the preset probe setpoint temperature. To change the temperature, slide the bar to select the desired temperature. Touch SET.
  7. An audible chime indicates that the internal temperature has reached probe setpoint.
  8. Remove and reinsert probe to verify internal temperature.
  9. Select OK or OFF. The oven does not turn off based on probe temperature.

If the probe is not working:

  2. Probe should click into place.
  3. Try removing and reinserting the probe.
  4. Be sure that the probe is fully seated in the probe receptacle before adjusting the probe temperature setting.

About the Probe

The temperature probe measures the internal temperature of food without opening the oven door.

  • Calculating a total cooking time by weight is no longer necessary using this feature.
  • After selecting the mode, "Probe" appears near the top of the screen if the probe can be used.
  • "Probe" remains on the screen, even if the probe is not used.
  • Programming the oven probe is different on M Series Pro models than on Transitional models.
  • Probes may be used in the upper and lower ovens of an M Series double oven at the same time, if desired. Two probes would be needed.

Refer to the product Use and Care Guide for temperature probe features and setting controls.
