Range Warming Drawer - Automatic Shut-Off/Sabbath Mode
On Ranges that have a Warming Drawer:
Sabbath Mode feature:
The Sabbath Mode feature does work with the warming drawer. You do not have to set up a separate Sabbath Mode for the Warming Drawer.
Automatic Shut-Off feature:
The Warming Drawer can be left on indefinitely using the Special Feature (SF) options.
The warming drawer uses the same Special Features (SF) setting as the automatic oven bake element shutoff. If the 12-hour shut-off is enabled (which is the default setting), then the warming drawer will shut off after 12 hours of being turned on. If you turn off the 12-hour shut-off using the Special Features (SF) setting, the warming drawer and the oven bake element (if engaged) will not automatically shut off.

The initial production of ranges with a warming drawer did have a 3-hour automatic shut-off. Starting with production in January 2004, the 3-hour automatic shut-off was removed. Any serial number for a range with a warming drawer that starts with the letters "AG" or later (A = January; G = 2004) would be a model that does NOT have the 3-hour shut-off on the warming drawer.
NOTE: This information does NOT apply to Built-In Warming Drawers (not a part of a range). These models do NOT have an automatic shut-off feature.
