Important
Safety Instructions
Gas ranges have been thoroughly tested for safe and efficient operation. However, as with any appliance, there are specific
installation and safety precautions which must be followed to ensure safe and satisfactory operation.
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to persons, or damage when using
the range, follow basic precautions, including the following:
. FOR YOUR SAFETY .
DO NOT STORE OR USE GASOLINE OR OTHER FLAMMABLE
VAPORS AND LIQUIDS IN
THE VICINITY OF THIS OR ANY OTHER APPLIANCE.
THE FUMES CAN CREATE A FIRE
HAZARD OR EXPLOSION.

TO THE CONSUMER:
n IMPORTANT
.
PLEASE LEAVE THIS INSTRUCTION
BOOK WITH THE UNIT.
PLEASE READ AND KEEP THIS BOOK FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
1. Install or locate the range only in
accordance with the provided
Installation Instructions. It is
recommended that the range be
installed by a qualified installer.
The range must be properly
connected to the proper gas
supply and checked for leaks. If
needed, the range must also be
properly connected to electrical
supply and grounded.
4.
5.
6.
7.
2. To reduce the risk of tipping of
the appliance, the appliance must
be secured by properly installed
anti-tip bracket(s). To check if the
bracket(s) is installed properly,
remove the storage drawer (see
page 8) and verify that the anti-tip
bracket(s) is engaged.
3. Gas fuels and combustion can
result in potential exposure to
chemicals known to cause cancer
or reproductive harm. For
example, benzene is a chemical
which is a part of the gas supplied
to the range. It is consumed in the
flame during combustion.
However, exposure to a small
amount of benzene is possible if a
gas leak occurs. Formaldehyde,
tge 2
8.
carbon monoxide and soot are byproducts of incomplete
combustion. Properly adjusted
burners with a bluish rather than
a yellow flame will minimize
incomplete combustion.
DO NOT operate the range if it is
not working properly, or if it has
been damaged.
DO NOT use the range for
warming or heating the room.
Persons could be burned or
injured, or a fire could start.
Use the range only for its intended
use as described in this manual.
DO NOT wear loose or hanging
garments when using the range.
They could ignite if they touch a
surface burner and you could be
burned.
DO NOT touch surface burners,
areas near burners or interior
surfaces of oven. Areas near
surface burners and interior
surfaces of an oven become hot
enough to cause burns. During
use, DO NOT touch, or let clothing
or other flammable materials
contact surface burners, areas
near surface burners or interior
surfaces of oven. Other surfaces of
the range may become hot enough
to cause burns; such as, the oven
vent opening, the surface near the
vent opening, the cooktop, the
oven door and window.
9. Make sure the utensils you use
are large enough to contain food
and avoid boil-overs and spillovers. Heavy splattering or spillovers left on a range can ignite
and burn you. Pan size is
especially important in deep fat
frying.
10. Turn pan handles inward, but not
over other surface burners. This
will help reduce the chance of
burns, igniting of flammable
materials, and spills due to
bumping of the pan.
11. Use only dry potholders. Moist or
damp potholders on surface
burners may result in burns from
steam. DO NOT let potholder
touch surface burners. DO NOT
use a towel or bulky cloth for a
potholder. They could catch on
fire.
12. Check to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe for use on the
cooktop. Only certain types of
glass, glass-ceramic, ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktops
without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature.
13. DO NOT use decorative covers or
trivets over the surface burners.
14. DO NOT heat unopened
containers. They could explode.
The hot contents could cause
burns and container particles
could cause injury.
15. Grease is flammable and should
be handled carefully. Let fat cool
before attempting to handle it. DO
NOT allow grease to collect
around cooktop or in vents. Wipe
spill-overs immediately.
16. DO NOT use water on grease
fires. Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flaming pan on range by
covering with a well-fitted lid,
cookie sheet or flat tray. Flaming
grease outside of pan can be
extinguished with baking soda or,
if available, a multipurpose dry
chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
17. Never leave surface burners
unattended at high heat settings.
A boil-over could result and cause
smoking and greasy spill-overs
that may ignite.
18. Make sure surface burners are off
when you are finished, and when
you aren’t watching.
19. Use care when opening oven door.
Let hot air or steam escape before
removing or replacing food.
28. Be sure all range parts are cool
before cleaning.
29. DO NOT clean door seal. It is
essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub,
damage, or move the seal. Clean
only parts recommended in this
Use and Care Guide.
30. DO NOT use oven cleaners. No
commercial oven cleaner or oven
liner protective coating of any
kind should be used in or around
any part of the oven.
31. Before self-cleaning the oven,
remove broiler pan, broiler grid,
oven racks and other utensils. Do
not use your oven to clean
miscellaneous parts.
32. DO NOT repair or replace any
part of the range unless
specifically recommended in this
manual. All other servicing
should be referred to a qualified
technician.
33. Disconnect the electrical supply
before servicing the range.
20. Always position oven racks in
desired location while oven is
cool.
21. DO NOT store flammable
materials on or near the range.
They could explode or burn.
22. DO NOT store things children
might want above the range.
Children could be burned or
injured while climbing on it.
23. DO NOT leave children alone or
unattended in area where the
range is in use. They should never
be allowed to sit or stand on any
part of the range. They could be
burned or injured.
24. NEVER use a match or other flame
to look for a gas leak. Explosion
and injury could result.
25. Know where your main gas shut
off valve is located.
26. Keep range vents unobstructed.
27. Clean your range regularly. See
care and cleaning instructions in
this manual.

Broiling tips
Broiling
1. Position the racks before turning
the oven on. Refer to broiling chart
below for recommended rack
positions and broiling times.
1 The effective useful cooking area of
the broiler is reduced when you use
the higher rack positions. In the
second from the top rack position, the
infra-red rays cover only about 85% of
the broiler grid area.
. To sear meat, place broiler pan at one
of the higher rack positions so that
meat is very near the flame.
1 Small steaks, hamburger patties, etc.,
may be broiled in the higher rack
positions.
1 To cook large steaks and other thick
cuts of meat well done. move them to a
lower rack position after searing.
’ When broiling meat with a high fat
content, it is recommended that the
second rack position or a lower rack
position be used for broiling.
4. Put the broiler pan and food on
the rack and completely close
the oven door.
5. When broiling is done, push the
Set/Cancel button. The time-ofday will then show in the large
display.
2. Push the Broil button.“---” will
show in the small display and the
BROIL indicator will come on.
3. You can broil at one of two
temperatures. To cook at the lower
temperature, turn the Time/Temp
Set Knob one click and “lo” will
appear in the small display. To
cook at the higher temperature,
turn the Time/Temp Set Knob two
clicks and “hi” will appear in the
small display. When the oven turns
on, the ON indicator will come on.
The burner lights automatically in
50-60 seconds.
Preheat the broiler for 5 minutes
before using. This heats the
special ceramic coating on the
burner reflector, which then
radiates the heat rays into the
food.

The storage
drawer
The storage drawer is for storing pots
and pans. The drawer can be removed to
make it easier to clean under the range,
and to check for installation of the antitip bracket(s). Use care when handling
the drawer.
Replacing the storage drawer:
Ball bearings
Removing the storage drawer:
Hot air and moisture escape from the
oven through a vent located under the
backguard. The vent is needed for air
circulation. Do not block the vent. Poor
baking will result.
Burn Hazard
When the oven is ON, pans and pan
handles left near the oven vent can
become hot enough to burn the
user and to melt plastics. Use
potholders to move pans. Never
store plastics, paper or other items
that could melt or bum near the
oven vent, or any of the surface
burners.
1. Make sure ball bearings on oven
slide rail are positioned toward
the front of the opening.

oven and clean them by hand.
Otherwise, put oven racks on
second and fourth guides (guides
are counted from bottom to top).
After racks are cleaned in the SelfCleaning cycle, they become
harder to slide. See page 12.
Turn on a vent hood or other
kitchen vent during the SelfCleaning cycle. This will help
remove heat and odors that are
normal during the cycle.
Personal Injury And Product
Damage Hazard
.Do not touch the oven during the
Self-Cleaning cycle. It could burn
you.
. Do not use commercial oven
cleaners in your oven. Cleaners
may produce hazardous fumes or
damage the porcelain finish.
. Do not use foil or other liners in
the oven. During the Self-Cleaning cycle foil can bum or melt

the controls
Special tips
1 Keep the kitchen well-ventilated
during the Self-Cleaning cycle to
help get rid of heat, odors and
smoke.
Clean the oven before it gets heavily
soiled. Cleaning a very soiled oven
takes longer and results in more
smoke than usual.
1 If the Self-Cleaning cycle doesn’t get
the oven as clean as you expected,
the cycle may not have been set
long enough or you may not have
prepared the oven properly. Set the
Self-Cleaning cycle longer the next
time and hand clean areas noted on
page 10.
6. After the Self-Cleaning cycle is
completed, the time-of-day will
show in the large display.
n
1. Make sure the Clock is set to the
right time of day. (See “Setting the
clock” on page 5.)
2. Move the Lock Lever all the way
to the right - the Clean position.
Push the Clean button. A 3-hour
Self-Cleaning cycle will be set
automatically. “3:OO” will show in
the large display. The CLEAN and
TIME indicators on the left side of
the display and the CLEAN and
ON indicators on the right side of
the display will come on.
NOTE: If the Clean button is
pushed when the door is not
latched, “door” will appear in the
large display. Move the Lock Lever
all the way to the right to latch the
door. If any other command button
is pushed when the door is
latched, the oven will not receive
the command. Move the Lock
Lever back to the left to unlatch
the door after the LOCK indicator
goes off.
(Option) Delayed clean: Push the
Clean button. Immediately push
the Stop Time button. Immediately
turn the Time/Temp Set Knob to
the new stop time. The TIME and
STOP indicators will come on.
After the stop time has been set,
the large display will go back to
showing the current time-of-day.
To see the start time, push the
Clean button and hold it for 3
seconds.
After the Self-Cleaning cycle is
started, the LOCK indicator will
come on when the oven
temperature exceeds normal
baking temperatures. The Lock
Lever must not be moved and the
door cannot be opened when this
indicator is on.
When the oven reaches normal
baking temperatures, the LOCK
and CLEAN indicators go off. Move
the Lock Lever back to the left. Do
not force it. Wait until it moves
easily.
After the oven is cool, wipe off any
residue or ash with a damp cloth. If
needed, touch up spots with a
soapy steel wool pad.
To stop the Self-Cleaning cycle
at any time:
1. Press the CLEAN button and turn
the Time/Temp Set Knob until
“0:OO” shows m the large display.
2. When the LOCK and CLEAN
indicators go off, move the Lock
Lever back to the left. Do not force
it. Wait until it moves easily.
How it works
During the Self-Cleaning cycle, the oven
gets much hotter than it does for baking
or broiling...approximately
875°F (468°C).
This heat breaks up grease and soil and
burns it off.
This graph shows approximate
temperatures and times during a SelfCleaning cycle for three hours.

Electrical
Shock And Personal
Injury Hazard
mMake sure oven and light bulb
are cool and power to the oven
has been turned off before
replacing the light bulb. Failure
to do so could result in electrical
shock or burns.
I The bulb cover must be in place
when using the oven. The cover
protects the bulb from breaking,
and from high oven temperatures. Since bulb cover is made of
glass, be careful not to drop it.
Broken glass could cause injury.
1. Unplug appliance or disconnect at
the main power supply.
2. Remove the glass bulb cover in the
back of the oven by screwing it out
counterclockwise.
3. Remove the light bulb from its
socket. Replace with a 40-watt
appliance bulb.
4. Replace the bulb cover by
screwing it in clockwise. Plug in
appliance or reconnect at the main
power supply.
NOTE: Make sure oven light is off
during the Self-Cleaning cycle. Keeping
oven light on will shorten bulb life.
