Signal Light
One of the signal lights will glow
when a surface unit is on.
Control knobs must be pushed in
betore turning them to a setting. They
can be set anywhere
between HI
and OFF.
Until you get used to the settings, use the following as a guide. For best results,
start cooking at the high settings; then turn the control knob down to continue
cooking.
Use HI to start
foods cooking; to bring
liquids to a
boil.
Use MED-HI
to hold a
rapid boil; to
fry chicken
or pancakes.
Use MED
for gravy,
puddings
and icing; to
cook large
amounts of
vegetables.
Use MED-LO
to keep food
cooking after
starting it
on a higher
setting.
CAUTION: The use of the HI setltng for long perfods of time
can damage
surface units and discolor chrome trim rlngS.
Start cooking on HI and turn control down to continue
cooklng.
Use LO to
keep food
warm until

heat higher
or lower
within the LO
band to keep
food at the

I
Use only flat-bottomed
utensils for best cooking results and to prevent damage
to the cooktop. Specialty
items with rounded or ridged bottoms (woks, ridged

The large diameter of most water-bath
or pressure canners combined
with
high heat settings for long periods of time can shorten the life of regular surface
units and cause damage
to the cooktop.
If you plan to use the cooktop for canning, we recommend
the installation
of a Canning Kit. Order the kit from your Whirlpool Dealer or Tech-Care”
Service
Company.

During baking, the elements will
turn on and off to keep the oven
temperature
at the setting. The
Oven Signal Light will turn on and

The top element helps heat
during baking, but does not
turn red.
Adjusting
the Oven Temperature
Control
Does your oven seem hotter or colder than your old oven? The temperature
of your old oven may have shifted gradually
without your noticing the change.
Your new oven is properly adjusted to provide accurate temperatures.
But when
comparing
to your old oven, the new design may give you different results.
If after using the oven for a period of time, you are not satisfied with the
temperature
settings, they can be adjusted by following these steps:
1.
Pull the Oven Temperature
Control straight off
3. To lower the temperature,
move
a notch closer to LO. Each notch
equals about10”F (5°C).
2. Loosen the locking screws inside
the control knob. Note the position of the notches.
4. To raise the temperature,
move a
notch closer to HI. Each notch
equals about10”F (S’YZ].
TIghten the locking screw and
replace the control knob.
Broiling
1.
Position the rack before turning
the oven on. See broil chart In the
“Cooking Guide” or a reliable
cookbook
for recommended
rack positions.
2. Put the broiler pan and food on
the rack.
continued
on next
page
3. Close the door to the Broil Stop
position, (open about 4 inches,
10.2 cm]. The door will stay open
bv itself.
4. Set the Oven Selector and the
Oven Temperature
Control to
BROIL.
5. When broiling is done, turn both
the Oven Selector and the Oven
Temperature
Control to OFF.
Custom
Broil
If food is cooking too fast, turn the Oven Temperature Control counterclockwise until the Oven Signal Light goes off.
l If you want
the food to broil slower from the start, set the Oven Temperature
Control between 150” and 325°F (65.5 and 142°C). The lower the temperature,
the slower the cooking.
The Oven Selector must be on BROIL for all broiling temperatures.
l
CAUTION: The door must be partly open whenever
the oven is set
to BROIL. Leaving the door open allows the oven to maintain
proper
temperatures
and prevents window glass from cracking.

CAUTION: Reflector bowls reflect heat back to the utensils on the surface
units. They also help catch spills. When they are kept clean, they reflect
heat better and look new longer.
If a trim ring gets discolored,
some of the utensils may be not be flat
enough, or some may be too large for the surface unit. In either case,
some of the heat that’s meant to go into or around a utensil goes down
and heats the trlm ring. This extra heat can discolor it. See “CookIng
Guide” for further information.

The Oven Window
If your range has an oven window instead of the black glass door, the outer glass
and frame can be removed for cleanrng. DO NOT TAKE APART A BLACK GLASS
DOOR.
To remove

With the door closed, remove the
screws from the top of the outer
window frame.
To replace

2. Slightly tip the window and
frame out from the top.
With both hands, lift up on both
sides of the frame.
the outer window:
Fit the bottom tabs of the frame
into the bottom of the window
opening.
Push the top of the frame into
place while pushing down.
2. Replace
the screws.
Using the Self-Cleaning
Cycle
The self-cleaning
cycle uses very high heat to burn away soil, Before you start,
make sure you understand
exactly how to use the cycle safely.
Before You Start
1. Clean the shaded
areas by hand.
They do not get hot enough during the Self-Clean cycle for soil to
burn away. Use hot water and
detergent or a soapy steel-wool
pad on...
l the frame
around the oven.
l the inside
of the door, especially
the part outside the oven seal.
DO NOT clean the fiberglass
seal.
DO NOT move it or bend it. Poor
cleaning
and poor baking will result.
2. Remove the broiler pan and any
pots or pans you may have stored
in the oven. They can’t stand the
high heat.
3.
Wipe out any loose soil or grease.
This will help reduce smoke duringthecleaningcycle.
4. If your oven has a rotisserie, make
sure the motor socket cover is
closed.
. Put oven racks on the second
and fourth guides. During the SelfCleaning
Cycle they will darken
and become harder to slide. See
tips on page 21. If you want the
oven racks to remain shiny, clean
them by hand.
The porcelain
reflector bowls may be cleaned
in the oven.
Put the oven racks on the second and fourth guides.
l Wipe the reflector
bowls of loose soiled and grease.
l Place
2 bowls, upside down on each rack. For best results,
they should not touch each other or the oven walls.
l Chrome
trim rings must not be cleaned
in the oven.
They will discolor.
l
Clean Frame
Turn on the vent hood or other kitchen vent during the cleaning
cycle.
This will help remove smoke, odor and heat that are normal during the cycle.
I
SPECIAL CAUTIONS:
DO NOT us commercial
oven
cleaners in your oven. Damage to
the porcelain
finish may occur.
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.
DO NOT use foil or other liners in the
oven. During the cleaning
cycle foil
can burn or melt and damage
me
oven surface.
18
Setting the Controls
Be sure the kitchen is ventilated
during the Self-Cleaning
cycle. This will help
normal smoke and heat odors to disappear
from the room as quickly as possible.
1.
Set the Oven Selector and the
Oven Temperature Control on
CLEAN.
3. Push in and turn the Stop Time
Knob clockwise
2 or 3 hours.
l Use 2 hours for light soil.
l Use 3 hours or more for
moderate to heavy soil.
5. The Lock Light comes on when the
oven temperature
exceeds 500°F
(300°C). The Lock Lever must not
be moved and the door can’t be
opened when this light is on.
2. Make sure the Clock, Start and
Stop Times all have the right time
of day.
4. Move the Lock Lever to the
Clean Position. The Clean Lighl
will come on only when the
lever is all the way to the right.
6.
After the Clean Cycle is completed, the Lock Light goes off.
Move the Lock Lever back to the
Cook Position. Do not force it.
Wait until it moves easily. This turns
off the Clean Light. Turn the Oven
Selector and the Oven Temperature Control to OFF.
Atter 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.
19
Special
I
20
mps
Keep the kitchen well ventilated
during the cleaning
cycle to help
get rid of normal 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.
If the 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 cleaning time
longer the next time and hand
clean areas noted on page 18.
Oven racks lose their shine, discolor and become harder to slide
on their guides when they are left
in the oven during the cleaning
cycle. To make them slide easier,
polish the edges of the racks with
a soapy steel-wool pad, rinse
well and wipe on a thin coat of
salad oil.
To stop the cleaning
any time:
1.

at
Push in and turn the Stop Time

2. Turn the Oven Selector and Oven
Temperature
Control to OFF When
the Lock Light turns off, move the
Lock Lever back to the Cook
Position. 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.

temperatures
and times during a self-cleaning
cycle for 3 hours.
