SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
49-80690
„ Use this appliance only for its intended purpose
as described in this Owner’s Manual.
„ Be sure your appliance is properly installed and
grounded by a qualified installer in accordance
with the provided installation instructions.
„ Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of
your range unless it is specifically recommended
in this manual. All other servicing should be
transferred to a qualified technician.
„ Before performing any service, unplug the range
or disconnect the power supply at the household
distribution panel by removing the fuse or
switching off the circuit breaker.
„ Do not leave children alone—children should
not be left alone or unattended in an area where
an appliance is in use. They should never be
allowed to climb, sit or stand on any part of the
appliance.
CAUTION
: Do not store items of
interest to children above a range or on the
backguard of a range—children climbing on the
range to reach items could be seriously injured.
„ Use only dry pot holders—moist or damp pot
holders on hot surfaces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let pot holders touch hot surface
units or heating elements. Do not use a towel or
other bulky cloth in place of pot holders.
„ Never use your appliance for warming or heating
the room.
„
„ Do not touch the surface units, the heating
elements or the interior surface of the oven.
These surfaces may be hot enough to burn
even though they are dark in color. During and
after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other
flammable materials contact the surface units,
areas nearby the surface units or any interior
area of the oven; allow sufficient time for cooling
first. Other surfaces of the appliance may
become hot enough to cause burns. Potentially
hot surfaces include the cooktop, areas facing
the cooktop, oven vent opening, surfaces near
the opening and crevices around the oven door.
„ Do not heat unopened food containers. Pressure
could build up and the container could burst,
causing an injury.
„ Do not use aluminum foil to line drip pans or
anywhere in the oven, except as described in
this manual. Foil can trap heat or melt, resulting
in damage to the product and a shock or fire
hazard.
„ Avoid scratching or impacting glass doors, cook
tops or control panels. Doing so may lead to
glass breakage. Do not cook on a product with
broken glass. Shock, fire or cuts may occur.
„ Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meat to
at least an internal temperature of 160°F and
poultry to at least an internal temperature of
180°F. Cooking to these temperatures usually
protects against foodborne illness.
SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNING GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
KEEP FLAMMABLE MATERIALS AWAY FROM THE RANGE
WARNING Failure
to do so may result in fire or personal injury.
„ Do not store or use flammable materials in
an oven or near the cooktop, including paper,
plastic, pot holders, linens, wall coverings,
curtains, drapes and gasoline or other flammable
vapors and liquids.
„ Never wear loose-fitting or hanging garments while
using the appliance. These garments may ignite if
they contact hot surfaces causing severe burns.
„ Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
Grease in the oven or on the cooktop may ignite.
„ Clean ventilating hoods frequently. Grease
should not be allowed to accumulate on the hood
or filter.

SAFETY INFORMATION
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
WARNING IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE, TAKE THE FOLLOWING
STEPS TO PREVENT INJURY AND FIRE SPREADING
„ Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up
a flaming pan. Turn the controls off. Smother a
flaming pan on a surface unit by covering the
pan completely with a well-fitting lid, cookie sheet
or flat tray. Use a multi-purpose dry chemical or
foam-type fire extinguisher.
„ If there is a fire in the oven during baking,
smother the fire by closing the oven door and
turning the oven off or by using a multi-purpose
dry chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
„ If there is a fire in the oven during self-clean, turn
the oven off and wait for the fire to go out. Do
not force the door open. Introduction of fresh air
at self-clean temperatures may lead to a burst
of flame from the oven. Failure to follow this
instruction may result in severe burns.
WARNING COOKTOP SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
„ Never leave the surface units unattended at
medium or high heat settings. Boilovers cause
smoking and greasy spillovers that may catch
on fire.
„ Never leave oil unattended while frying. If
allowed to heat beyond its smoking point, oil
may ignite resulting in fire that may spread
to surrounding cabinets. Use a deep fat
thermometer whenever possible to monitor oil
temperature.
„ To avoid oil spillover and fire, use a minimum
amount of oil when shallow pan-frying and
avoid cooking frozen foods with excessive
amounts of ice.
„ Use proper pan size—select cookware having
flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface
heating element. The use of undersized
cookware will expose a portion of the surface
unit to direct contact and may result in ignition
of clothing. Proper relationship of cookware to
surface unit will also improve efficiency.
4
„ Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed containers are
suitable for cooktop service; others may break
because of the sudden change in temperature.
„ To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition of
flammable materials and spillage, the handle of a
container should be turned toward the center of
the range without extending over nearby surface
units.
„ When preparing flaming foods under a hood, turn
the fan on.
„ If power is lost to an electric cooktop while a
surface unit is ON, the surface unit will turn back
on as soon as power is restored. In the event of
power loss, failure to turn all surface unit knobs
to the OFF position may result in ignition of items
on or near the cooktop, leading to serious injury
or death.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
49-80690
„ Use care when touching the cooktop. The glass
surface of the cooktop will retain heat after the
controls have been turned off.
„ Do not cook on a broken cooktop. If glass
cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and
spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and
create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified
technician immediately.
„ Avoid scratching the glass cooktop. The cooktop
can be scratched with items such as knives,
sharp instruments, rings or other jewelry, and
rivets on clothing.
„ Do not place or store items that can melt or catch
fire on the glass cooktop, even when it is not
being used. If the cooktop is inadvertently turned
on, they may ignite. Heat from the cooktop or
oven vent after it is turned off may cause them to
ignite also.
„ Use CERAMA BRYTE® ceramic Cooktop Cleaner
and CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Pad to clean
the cooktop. Wait until the cooktop cools and
the indicator light goes out before cleaning. A
wet sponge or cloth on a hot surface can cause
steam burns. Some cleaners can produce
noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface. Note:
Sugar spills are an exception. They should be
scraped off while still hot using an oven mitt and
a scraper. See the Cleaning the glass cooktop
section for detailed instructions.
„ Read and follow all instructions and warnings on
the cleaning cream label.
SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNING RADIANT COOKTOP SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING OVEN SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
„ Stand away from the range when opening the
oven door. Hot air or steam which escapes can
cause burns to hands, face and/or eyes.
„ Do not use the oven if a heating element
develops a glowing spot during use or shows
other signs of damage. A glowing spot indicates
the heating element may fail and present a
potential burn, fire, or shock hazard. Turn the
oven off immediately and have the heating
element replaced by a qualified service
technician.
„ Keep the oven vent unobstructed.
„ Keep the oven free from grease buildup. Grease
in the oven may ignite.
„ Place oven racks in desired location while oven
is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot,
do not let pot holder contact hot heating element
in oven.
„ When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
„ Pull the oven rack to the stop-lock position when
loading and unloading food from the oven. This
helps prevent burns from touching hot surfaces
of the door and oven walls.
„ Do not leave items such as paper, cooking
utensils or food in the oven when not in use.
Items stored in an oven can ignite.
„ Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven bottom.
Foil can trap heat or melt, resulting in damage to
the product and a shock or fire hazard.

WARNING
FOOD POISON HAZARD: Bacteria may grow in food at
temperatures below 140°F.
„ Always start with hot food. Do not use warm setting to
heat cold food.
„ Do not use warm setting for more than
2 hours.
The WARMING ZONE, located in the back center of
the glass surface, will keep hot, cooked food at serving
temperature. Always start with hot food. Do not use to
heat cold food. Placing uncooked or cold food on the
WARMING ZONE could result in foodborne illness.
Turn the control knob to the ON position.
For models using the touch pads for warming zone
control, see section on "Using the Oven" for additional
details.
For best results, all foods on the WARMING ZONE
should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil. When
warming pastries or breads, the cover should be vented
to allow moisture to escape.
The initial temperature, type and amount of food, type of
pan, and the time held will affect the quality of the food.
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when removing
food from the WARMING ZONE, since cookware and
plates will be hot.
NOTE: The surface warmer will not glow red like the
cooking elements.

Home Canning Tips
Be sure the canner is centered over the surface unit.
Make sure the canner is flat on the bottom.
To prevent burns from steam or heat, use caution when
canning.
Use recipes and procedures from reputable sources.
These are available from manufacturers such as Ball®
and Kerr® and the Department of Agriculture Extension
Service.
Flat-bottomed canners are recommended. Use of water
bath canners with rippled bottoms may extend the time
required to bring the water to a boil.
For Models With a Radiant Glass Cooktop
The radiant cooktop features heating units beneath a
smooth glass surface.
NOTE: A slight odor is normal when a new cooktop is
used for the first time. It is caused by the heating of new
parts and insulating materials and will disappear in a
short time.
NOTE: On models with light-colored glass cooktops, it is
normal for the cooking zones to change color when hot
or cooling down. This is temporary and will disappear as
the glass cools to room temperature.
The surface unit will cycle on and off to maintain your
selected control setting.
It is safe to place hot cookware on the glass surface
even when the cooktop is cool.
Even after the surface units are turned off, the glass
cooktop retains enough heat to continue cooking. To
avoid overcooking, remove pans from the surface units
when the food is cooked. Avoid placing anything on the
surface unit until it has cooled completely.
„ Water stains (mineral deposits) are removable using
the cleaning cream or full-strength white vinegar.
„ Use of window cleaner may leave an iridescent film on
the cooktop. The cleaning cream will remove this film.
„ Don’t store heavy items above the cooktop. If they
drop onto the cooktop, they can cause damage.
„ Do not use the surface as a cutting board.
Never cook directly on the glass.
Always use cookware.
USING THE RANGE: Surface Units

Recommended rack positions for various types of
foods are provided in the Cooking Guide. Adjusting
rack position is one way to impact cooking results. For
example, if you would prefer darker tops on cakes,
muffins, or cookies, try moving food one rack position
higher. If you find foods are too brown on top try moving
them down next time.
When baking with multiple pans and on multiple racks,
ensure there is at least 1½" between pans to allow
sufficient space for air to flow.
Your Oven may have extension racks and/or traditional
flat racks.
To avoid possible burns, place the racks in the desired
position before you turn the oven on.
The number of rack positions may vary by model.
Extension Racks
Always pull the rack out by its upper front rail to its fully
open position, when placing or removing cookware.
If extension racks are difficult to extend, lubricate the
racks with the graphite lubricant provided with your
oven. Remove the rack from the oven, remove debris in
the side tracks with a paper towel, shake the graphite
lubricant and place 4 small drops on the two bottom
tracks of the left and right sides. Open and close the
rack several times to distribute the lubricant.
To order additional graphite lubricant, read the
Assistance and Accessories section at the beginning of
the manual.

Oven Racks
CAUTION:
Never place cooking utensils, pizza or baking stones, aluminum foil or any other items
on the oven floor. There is a heating element beneath the oven floor. Placing items on the oven floor may
cause the oven to overheat, resulting in damage to the oven and risk of damage or fire to cabinets.
Aluminum Foil
Do not use aluminum foil to line oven bottoms. The foil will trap heat below and upset the performance of the
oven. Foil can melt and permanently damage the oven bottom. Damage from improper use of aluminum foil is not
covered by the product warranty.
Foil may be used to catch spills by placing a sheet on a lower rack, several inches below the food. Do not use more
foil than necessary and never entirely cover an oven rack with aluminum foil. Keep foil at least 1-1/2” from oven walls
to prevent poor heat circulation.
Cookware
Cookware Guidelines
The material, finish, and size of cookware affect baking
performance.
Shiny pans can produce more evenly cooked baked
goods such as cakes and cookies.
Dark, coated and dull pans absorb heat more readily
than light, shiny pans. Pans that absorb heat more
readily can result in a browner, crisper, and thicker crust.
If using dark and coated cookware check food earlier
than minimum cook time. If undesirable results are
obtained with this type of cookware consider reducing
oven temperature by 25º F next time.
Glass and ceramic pans heat slowly but retain heat well.
These types of pans work well for dishes such as pies
and custards.
Air insulated pans heat slowly and can reduce bottom
browning.
Keep cookware clean to promote even heating.
49-80690
Your new oven has a variety of cooking modes to help you get the best results. These modes are described below.
Refer to the Cooking Guide section for recommendations for specific foods. Remember, your new oven may perform
differently than the oven it is replacing.
Baking and Roasting Modes
Broiling Modes
Select a mode for baking and roasting based on the
type and quantity of food you are preparing. When
preparing baked goods such as cakes, cookies, and
pastries always preheat the oven first. Follow recipe
recommendations for food placement. If no guidelines
are provided, center food in the oven.
The traditional bake mode is intended for single rack
cooking. This mode uses heat primarily from the lower
element but also from the upper element to cook
food. To use this mode press the Bake pad, enter
a temperature, and then press Start. Preheating is
generally recommended when using this mode.
Always broil with the door open. Monitor food closely
while broiling. Use caution when broiling on upper rack
positions as placing food closer to the broil element
increases smoking, spattering, and the possibility of fats
igniting. For best performance center food below the
broil heating element. Broiling on the upper most rack
position is not recommended.
Try broiling foods that you would normally grill. Adjust
rack positions to adjust the intensity of the heat to the
food. Place foods closer to the broil element when a
seared surface and rare interior is desired. Thicker foods
and foods that need to be cooked through should be
broiled on a rack position farther from the broiler or by
using Broil Lo.
Convection Bake Multi Rack
Broil Hi
The Convection Bake Multi Rack mode is intended
for baking on multiple racks at the same time. This
mode uses heat primarily from the rear element but
also heat from the upper and lower elements, along
with air movement from the convection fan to enhance
cooking evenness. Your oven is equipped with Auto
Recipe Conversion, so it is not necessary to convert the
temperature when using this mode. Baking time might
be slightly longer for multiple racks than what would be
expected for a single rack. To use this mode press the
Convection Bake pad, enter a temperature, and then
press Start. Always preheat when using this mode.
The Traditional Broil Hi mode uses intense heat from
the upper element to sear foods. Use Broil Hi for thinner
cuts of meat and/ or foods you prefer less done on the
interior. To use this mode press the Broil pad once and
then press Start. It is not necessary to preheat when
using this mode.
Traditional Bake
Convection Roast
The Convection Roast mode is intended for roasting
whole cuts of meat on a single rack. This mode uses
heat from the lower, upper, and rear elements along
with air movement from the convection fan to improve
browning and reduce cooking time. It is not necessary to
convert temperature. Check food earlier than the recipe
suggested time when using this mode or use a meat
probe. To use this mode press the Convection Roast
pad, enter a temperature, and then press Start. It is not
necessary to preheat when using this mode.
49-80690
USING THE RANGE: Cooking Modes
Cooking Modes
Broil Lo
The Traditional Broil Lo mode uses less intense heat
from the upper element to cook food thoroughly while
also producing surface browning. Use Broil Lo for thicker
cuts of meat and/or foods that you would like cooked
all the way through. To use this mode press the Broil
pad twice and then press Start. It is not necessary to
preheat when using this mode.
Warm
Warm mode is designed to keep hot food hot, it is not
intended to heat cold food. To use this mode, press
the Warm pad then press Start. Preheating is not
required. Cover foods that need to remain moist and
do not cover foods that should be crisp. Warm can
be used for crisping crackers, chips or dry cereal. It is
recommended, for food quality, that food not be kept
warm for more than 2 hours.

When Using the Warming Drawer
The warming drawer will keep hot, cooked foods warm.
Always start with hot food. Do not use to heat cold food
other than crisping crackers, chips or dry cereal.
Do not line the warming drawer or pan with
aluminum foil. Foil is an excellent heat insulator
and will trap heat beneath it. This will upset the
performance of the drawer and could damage the
interior finish.
Allow approximately 25 minutes for the warming drawer
to preheat.
„ Do not put liquid or water in the warming drawer.
„ All foods placed in the warming drawer should be
covered with a lid or aluminum foil. When warming
pastries or breads, the cover should be vented to
allow moisture to escape.
„ Food should be kept hot in its cooking container or
transferred to a heat-safe serving dish.
NOTE: Plastic containers or plastic wrap will melt if
in direct contact with the drawer, pan or a hot utensil.
Melted plastic may not be removable and is not covered
under your warranty.
„ Remove serving spoons, etc., before placing
containers in warming drawer.
Temperature Selection Chart
To keep several different foods hot, set the control to the
food needing the highest setting.
„ The temperature, type and amount of food, and the

Clean up splatters with a damp cloth.
You may also use a glass cleaner.
Remove heavier soil with warm, soapy water. Do not use
abrasives of any kind.
Reactivate the touch pads after cleaning.
Control Panel
It’s a good idea to wipe the control panel after each use.
Clean with mild soap and water or vinegar and water,
rinse with clean water and polish dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use abrasive cleansers, strong liquid cleansers,
plastic scouring pads or oven cleaners on the control
panel—they will damage the finish.
Oven Exterior
Do not use oven cleaners, abrasive cleansers, strong
liquid cleansers, steel wool, plastic scouring pads, or
cleaning powders on the interior or exterior of the oven.
Clean with a mild soap and water or vinegar and water
solution. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft cloth.
When cleaning surfaces, make sure that they are at
room temperature and not in direct sunlight.
If stain on the door vent trim is persistent, use a mild
abrasive cleaner and a sponge-scrubber for best results.
Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato sauces and
basting liquids containing acids may cause discoloration
and should be wiped up immediately. Let hot surfaces
cool, then clean and rinse.
Painted Surfaces
Painted surfaces include the sides of the range and the
door, top of control panel and the drawer front. Clean
these with soap and water or a vinegar and water solution.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners, cleaning powders,
steel wool or harsh abrasives on any painted surface.
Stainless Steel Surfaces (on some models)
Do not use a steel wool pad; it will scratch the surface.
To clean the stainless steel surface, use warm sudsy
water or a stainless steel cleaner or polish. Always wipe
the surface in the direction of the grain. Follow the cleaner
instructions for cleaning the stainless steel surface.
To inquire about purchasing cleaning products including
stainless steel appliance cleaner or polish read the
Assistance and Accessories sections at the beginning of
this manual.
Porcelain Enamel Cooktop (on some models)
The porcelain enamel finish is sturdy but breakable if
misused. This finish is acid-resistant. However, any acidic
foods spilled (such as fruit juices, tomato or vinegar)
should not be permitted to remain on the finish.
If acids spill on the cooktop while it is hot, use a dry paper
20
towel or cloth to wipe it up right away. When the surface
has cooled, wash with soap and water. Rinse well.
For other spills such as fat spatterings, wash with soap
and water or cleansing powders after the surface has
cooled. Rinse well. Polish with a dry cloth.
49-80690
The interior of your new oven can be cleaned manually or by using Steam Clean or Self Clean modes.
Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato sauces and basting liquids containing acids may cause discoloration and
should be wiped up immediately. Let hot surfaces cool, then clean and rinse.
Manual Cleaning
Do not use oven cleaners, abrasive cleaners, strong
liquid cleansers, steel wool, scouring pads, or cleaning
powders on the interior of the oven. Clean with a mild
soap and water or vinegar and water solution. Rinse with
clean water and dry with a soft cloth. When cleaning
surfaces, make sure that they are at room temperature.
Steam Clean Mode
Steam clean is intended to clean small spills using water
and a lower cleaning temperature than Self-Clean.
To use the Steam Clean feature, wipe grease and soils
from the oven. Pour one cup of water into the bottom of
the oven. Close the door. Press the Steam Clean pad
and then press Start. The oven door will lock. You can
not open the door during the 30 minute steam clean as
this will decrease the steam clean performance. At the
end of the steam clean cycle the door will unlock. Wipe
out any excess water and any remaining soil.
Self Clean Mode
Read Self-Cleaning Oven Safety Instructions at the
beginning of this manual before using Self Clean Mode.
Self clean uses very high temperatures to clean the oven
interior. The oven door will lock when using this feature.
Before operating the self-clean cycle, wipe up grease and
soils from the oven. Remove all items from the oven other
than enameled (dark color) racks. Shiny or silver racks
and any cookware or other items should all be removed
from the oven before initiating a self-clean cycle. Close
the door. Press the Self Clean pad and a default selfclean time is displayed. The clean time can be changed
to any time between 3:00 and 5:00 hours by using the
number pads to enter a different time and pressing Start.
For heavily soiled ovens, the maximum 5 hour clean time
is recommended. If you wish to use the default time, press
the Start pad immediately after pressing the Clean pad.
The oven will turn off automatically when the self-clean
cycle is complete. The door will stay locked until the oven
has cooled down. After the oven has cooled down wipe
any ash out of the oven.
We recommend venting your kitchen with an open
window or using a ventilation fan or hood during the first
self-clean cycle.
Soil on the front frame of the range and outside the
gasket on the door will need to be cleaned by hand.
Clean these areas with hot water, soap-filled steel-wool
pads or cleansers such as Soft Scrub®. Rinse well with
clean water and dry.
Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass material of
the oven door gasket cannot withstand abrasion. It is
essential for the gasket to remain intact. If you notice it
becoming worn or frayed, replace it.
Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in place and the
oven light is off.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely
sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-cleaning
cycle of any range. Move birds to another wellventilated room.
On Some Models:
The surface units are automatically disabled during the
self-clean cycle. Make sure that all surface unit controls
are turned off at all times during the self-clean cycle.
Any surface unit that is set to an “on” position while the
self-clean cycle is operating will automatically come on
after the self-clean cycle is finished, and could result in
an “on” unattended surface unit. Wait until the self-clean
cycle is finished to set and use the surface units.

are allowed to boil dry, the overlay may leave black
discoloration on the cooktop.
This should be removed immediately before heating
again or the discoloration may be permanent.
NOTE: Carefully check the bottom of pans for roughness
that would scratch the cooktop.
Cooktop Seal (on some models)
To clean the cooktop seal around the edges of the glass,
lay a wet cloth on it for a few minutes, then wipe clean
with nonabrasive cleaners.
Damage from Sugary Spills and Melted Plastic
Special care should be taken when removing hot substances to avoid permanent damage of the glass surface.
Sugary spillovers (such as jellies, fudge, candy, syrups) or melted plastics can cause pitting of the surface of your
cooktop (not covered by the warranty) unless the spill is removed while still hot. Special care should be taken when
removing hot substances.
Be sure to use a new, sharp razor scraper.
Do not use a dull or nicked blade.
1. Turn off all surface units. Remove hot pans.
2. Wearing an oven mitt:
