Range Warming Drawer - Automatic Shut-Off/Sabbath Mode
On ranges that have a warming drawer:
The Sabbath mode feature does work with the warming drawer.
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.
