When
l
l
l
l
l
using
the
cooktop
Make sure the utensils you use are large
enough to contain food and avoid boilovers and spillovers. Heavy splattering or
spillovers left on a range could ignite and
burn you. Pan size is especially important
in deep fat frying.
Check to be sure glass cooking utensils
are safe for use on the range. 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.
Never leave surface burners unattended
at high heat settings. A boilover could
result and cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that could ignite.
Do not use water on grease fires. Never
pick up a flaming pan. Smother flaming
pan 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.
l
Care
l
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.
Do not use decorative covers or trivets
over the surface burners.
l
When
l
l
using
the
oven
Always position the oven rack(s) in
desired location while oven is cool.
Use care when opening oven door. Let
hot air or steam escape before removing
or replacing food.
Grease
l
6
Grease is flammable. Do not allow
grease to collect around cooktop or in
vents. Wipe spillovers immediately.
l
and
cleanina
Small amounts of formaldehyde and
carbon monoxide are given off in the SelfCleaning cycle from fiberglass insulation
and food decomposition. Significant exposure to these substances could cause
cancer or reproductive harm. Exposure
can be minimized by venting with a hood
or open window and wiping out excess
food spills prior to self-cleaning.
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.
Before self-cleaning the oven, remove
broiler pan, broiler grid, oven racks, and
other utensils. Do not use your oven to
clean miscellaneous parts unless you are
instructed to do so in this Use and Care
Guide.
l
l
Do not clean door heat 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.
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.
- READ
AND
SAVE
l
l
Any additions, changes, or conversions
required in order for this appliance to
satisfactorily meet the application needs
must be made by a Whirlpool service
company or Qualified Agency.

tips
No one brand of cookware
people. Knowing something
materials and construction
select the correct cookware
The pan should have straight sides and a
tight-fitting lid.
Choose medium to heavy gauge (thickness) pans that are fairly lightweight.
The pan material (metal or glass) affects
how fast heat transfers from the surface
burners through the pan material and how
evenly heat spreads over the pan bottom.
Choose pans that provide the best cooking
results.
Handles should be made of a sturdy, heatresistant material and be securely attached
to the pan.
Pans should be easy to clean. Check to be
sure there are no crevices, rough edges, or
areas where food might collect.
Be sure pans do not tip, whether they are
full or empty.
Use: cookware only as it was intended to
be used. Follow pan instructions. This is
very important for glass cookware because
some should be used only in the oven.
Other pans are marked as flameware and
may be used on the surface burners.
Do not place canner on two surface
burners at the same time. Too much heat
will build up and will damage the cooktop.
Start with hot water. This reduces the
time the control is set on HI. Reduce heat
setting to lowest position needed to keep
water boiling.
Refer to your canner manual for specific
instructions.
Positioning
racks
and pans
For baking/roasting
with one rack, place
the rack so the top of the food will be centered in the oven.
Rack placement for specific foods:

Frozen pies, large
roasts, turkeys, angel
food cakes
1st or 2nd rack
guide from bottom
Bundt cakes, most
quick breads, yeast
breads, casseroles,
meats
2nd rack guide
from bottom
For proper roasting, follow these
guidelines:
l The rack must be level.
l Use adequate
amount of liquid (meat juices
or water) so food does not get overdone.
l Do not try to pull
rack out over door. Rack
will be at the same level as door when door
is opened.
Personal Injury Hazard
Always position oven rack(s) in
desired location before turning oven
on. Be sure the rack(s) is level.
l If rack(s) must be moved while oven is
hot, use pot holders or oven mitts to
protect hands.
l Do not place items on the open oven
door.
l Be careful when installing
and removing large food items from extra oven
rack position. Food will be closer to
hot surfaces, including oven bottom
,
and sides.
Failure to follow the above precautions
could result in personal injury.
l
Cookies, biscuits,
muffins, cakes,

For best air circulation
Hot air must circulate around the pans in the
oven for even heat to reach all parts of the
oven. This results in better baking.
l
Place the pans so that one is not directly
over the other.
l For best results,
allow 1 M-2 inches
(4-5 cm) of space around each pan and
between pans and oven walls. There must
be a minimum space of 1 inch (2.5 cm).
l
Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at
one time.
12
Use the following as a guide to determine
where to place the pans:
One pan
Place in the center of the oven rack.
Two pans
Place in opposite corners of the oven rack.
Three or four pans
Place in opposite corners on each oven rack.
Stagger pans so no pan is directly over
another.

Broiling
tips
Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling.
They are designed to drain excess liquid
and grease away from the cooking surface
to help prevent spatter, smoke, or fire.
l If you
broil small quantities, you may want
to use a small broiler pan. They are available in the housewares section of many
department stores.
l Broiling
rack position determines how
the burner cooks your food. The lower
the position, the more broiler grid area
covered. See “Broiling rack position chart”
below for more information.
l To sear meat, place broiler pan at one of
the higher rack positions so that meat is
very near the flame.
l Small
steaks may be broiled in the higher

Energy
saving
tips
Although the energy used for cooking is
usually a very small percentage of the total
energy used in the home, cooking energy
can be used efficiently. Here are some tips to
help you save energy when using your
cooking product:
l Use pans with flat bottoms,
straight sides,
and tight-fitting lids.
l Cook with a minimum
of liquid or fat to help
shorten cooking time.
l Preheat
pans only when recommended
and for the shortest time possible.
l Start food on higher
heat settings, then set
surface burner control on low to finish
cooking.
l Use the more efficient
surface burners
instead of the oven when possible.
l Turn
on the surface burner only after
placing filled pan on the burner grate.

“Oven peeking” may cause heat loss,
longer cooking times, and unsatisfactory
baking results. Rely on your timer to keep
track of the cooking time.
Bake cakes, pies, or cookies when oven is
warm. Best time to bake is right after a
meal has been cooked in the oven.
Preheat the oven no longer than
necessary.
Plan your meals for the most efficient use
of the range. When using the oven to cook
one food, try to cook the rest of the meal in
it also.
Do not preheat when roasting or cooking
items such as casseroles.
Keep reflector pans clean for best heat
reflection.
MEALTIMERTM
The electronic MEALTIMER control will turn
the oven on and off at times you set, even
when you are not around.
Delayed time baking/roasting is ideal for
foods which do not require a preheated oven,
such as meats and casseroles. Do not use
delayed time cooking for cakes, cookies,
etc. - undercooking
will result.
Before using the electronic MEALTIMER
control, make sure the clock is set to the
correct time of day. (See ‘Setting the clock”

To avoid sickness and food waste
when using the MEALTIMER’” clock:
*Do not let most UNFROZEN food
stand for more than two hours before
cooking starts.
l Do not allow food to remain in oven for
more than two hours after the end of
cooking cycle.
NOTE: Do not use foods that will spoil while
waiting for cooking to start. Such foods are:
dishes with milk or eggs, cream soups, and
cooked meats or fish. Also, foods containing
baking powder or yeast will not rise properly
when cooked using delay start.
The oven vent
NOTE: Never store plastics, paper, or other
items that could melt or burn near the oven
vent, or any of the surface burners.
Burn Hazard
When the oven is ON, pans and pan
handles left near the oven vent could
become hot enough to burn the user and
to melt plastics.. Use pot holders to move
Oven vent
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven
through a vent located in lower pat-t of
backguard. The vent is needed for air circulation. Do not block the vent. Poor baking/
roasting will result.

25
The anti-tip
brackets
The range will not tip during normal use. However, tipping can occur if you apply too much
force or weight to the open door without the anti-tip bracket(s) properly secured.
Personal Injury Hazard
*To reduce risk of range tipping over, secure range with properly
installed anti-tip bracket(s) supplied with range.
*If range is moved for cleaning or service, check that anti-tip
bracket(s) is engaged before using range.
Failure to follow the above precautions could result in personal injury.
26
Using the Self-Cleaning
The Self-Cleaning cycle saves you from the
toil and mess that often come with handcleaning the oven interior. Like the other
functions of your range, you operate the SelfCleaning cycle with the easy-to-use controls.

and detergent or a soapy steel-wool pad
for cleaning.
NOTE: DO NOT clean, move, or bend the

may result.
l Remove
any pots and pans being stored
in the oven.
NOTE: You can clean the broiler pan
(without grid) in the oven if you have first
removed most of the soil by hand-cleaning
or in a dishwasher. If most of the soil is not
removed, too much smoking will occur. The
chrome broiler grid will discolor if cleaned
in the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Do not touch the oven during the SelfCleaning cycle. It could burn you.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners in
your oven. Cleaners could produce
hazardous fumes or damage the
porcelain finish.
NOTES:
l Do not force
the Lock Lever. You could
bend or break it. The lever is designed to
stay locked until the oven is cool enough to
safely open. Wait until it moves freely.
l Do not block
the vent during the SelfCleaning cycle. Air must move freely for
best cleaning results.
l Do not leave
plastic utensils near the vent.
They may melt.
l Do not leave any foil in oven during the
Self-Cleaning cycle Foil could burn or melt
and damage the oven surface.
l Make sure the oven

Special
l
l
tips
Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the
Self-Cleaning cycle to help get rid of heat,
odors, and smoke.
After the oven is cool, wipe up any
residue or ash with a damp cloth or sponge.
If any spots remain, clean with a mild
abrasive cleanser or cleaning sponge.
30
l
l
Clean the oven before it gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning a very soiled oven takes longer
and results in more smoke than usual.
If the Self-Cleaning
cycle does not get
the oven as clean as you expected, you
may not have prepared the oven properly.
Hand-clean areas noted on page 27.
How the cycle
works
The Self-Cleaning cycle uses very high heat
to burn away soil and grease. During the
cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it does
for normal baking or broiling. This high heat
breaks up the soil or grease and burns it
away.
The graph at the right is representative of a
normal, 3-hour Self-Cleaning cycle. Note that
the heating stops when the 3-hour setting is
up, but it takes longer for the oven to cool
enough to unlock.
