Range Warming Drawer - Automatic Shut-Off/Sabbath Mode

On ranges that have a warming drawer:

Sabbath Mode

The Sabbath mode feature does work with the warming drawer.


Automatic Shut-Off

The warming drawer can be left on indefinitely using 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 startup.  If you turn off the 12-hour shutoff setting in SF mode, the warming drawer and the oven bake element (if engaged) will not automatically shut off.  
  • For model specific information, consult the Owner's Manual.  Download a copy of the Owner’s Manual


Initial production of warming drawer ranges 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 warming drawer range that starts with "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 part of a range). These models do NOT have an automatic shut off feature.
