  • Patent number: 10260757
    Abstract: An oven rack assembly (2000) can be used with an oven (128?) having sets of liner ribs (1004). The oven rack assembly (2000) includes an oven rack (208), slide system (2018) and subframe (2040). The oven rack assembly (2000) also includes a retention/release assembly (2060) for facilitating retention of a position of the subframe (2040) onto liner ribs (2004) and for facilitating release of the subframe (2040) when a user wishes to remove or move the assembly (2000) from the oven. Attachment plates (2065) can also be included, with the plates (2065) mounted to side stampings (2022). The oven rack assembly (2000) also includes protruding forms (2122) on the subframe (2040) which interact with forms (2124) positioned along the liner ribs (2004) to prevent tipping of the subframe (2040) when the oven rack (2008) is moved to an extended position.

  • Patent number: 7051539
    Abstract: A refrigerator freezer having an upper refrigerator compartment and a lower below freezing freezer compartment. The upper compartment can be a convertible compartment selectively operable by the user as an above freezing refrigerator compartment or as a below freezing freezer compartment. The evaporator for supplying refrigerated air is located in the upper compartment along with an auxiliary heater and upper compartment thermostat to control the temperature in the upper compartment. A control discharges an amount of refrigerated air to the upper compartment for refrigerator operation and a larger amount of refrigerated air for freezer operation. The control also energizes the auxiliary heater under control of the upper compartment thermostat during refrigerator operation to assure above freezing temperatures in the upper compartment. A low ambient heater can be provided for the upper compartment for use of the refrigerator freezer in low ambient temperature conditions such as an unheated garage.
