READ ALL IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS AND ALL
INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE.
Remove all tape and packaging wrap before using the oven. If any glue remains, touch
the residue with the sticky side of the tape already removed, or use a cloth soaked with
rubbing alcohol. Use caution because rubbing alcohol is flammable. Rinse with warm
water and wipe dry.
Destroy the carton and plastic bags after the range is unpacked. Children should not
use packaging material for play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads, or plastic sheets
can become air-tight chambers. Remove all staples from the carton. Staples can cause
severe cuts and destroy finishes if they come in contact with other appliances or furniture.
Be safety conscious. The preparation of food in an oven requires temperatures that could cause
severe burns. Before using this new appliance, carefully read and follow all instructions.
! WARNING
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986
(Proposition 65) requires the Governor of California to publish a list of
substances known to the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive
harm. In addition, businesses must warn customers of potential exposure to
such substances.
Users of this appliance are hereby warned that the burning of gas can result in low level
exposure to some of the listed substances, including formaldehyde, benzene, soot and carbon
monoxide. This is caused primarily from the incomplete combustion of natural gas or LP fuel.
Properly adjusted burners will minimize incomplete combustion. Exposure to these
substances can also be minimized by properly venting the burners by opening a window or
using a ventilating hood or fan.
Notice: Never keep pet birds in the kitchen. Birds have a very sensitive respiratory system.
Fumes released during the self-cleaning cycle, overheated cooking oil, fat, margarine or
overheated non-stick cookware may be harmful or fatal to birds.
PROPER INSTALLATION: Be sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded by
a qualified technician in accordance with the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1-latest
edition, and the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No. 70-latest edition. Install only per
installation instructions provided in the literature package for this range. Be sure leveling legs
are in place at the bottom corners of the range. If necessary, raise or lower the leveling legs at
the base of the range by turning clockwise or counterclockwise to insure a level range.
Ask your dealer to recommend a qualified technician and an authorized repair service.
Have the technician familiarize you with the locations of the manual gas shut off valve and
gas meter in the event it is necessary to shut off gas supply to the unit during an
emergency.
! WARNING
The following situations may cause serious bodily harm, death or
property damage.
• TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED
BY A PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP BRACKET PROVIDED WITH THE RANGE. TO
CHECK IF THE DEVICE IS INSTALLED AND ENGAGED PROPERLY, CAREFULLY TIP
THE RANGE FORWARD. THE ANTI-TIP DEVICE SHOULD ENGAGE AND PREVENT THE
RANGE FROM TIPPING OVER. REFER TO THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
PACKAGED WITH THE ANTI-TIP BRACKET FOR PROPER ANTI-TIP BRACKET
INSTALLATION.
• Never leave children alone or unattended in the area where an appliance is in use.
They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance. Never leave
the oven door open when the range is unattended.
• Do not store items of interest to children in the cabinets above a range or on the
backguard of a range. Children climbing on the range to reach the items could be
seriously injured.
3
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS, Continued
• Do not allow children to climb or play around the range. The weight of a child on an
open oven door may cause the range to tip, resulting in serious burns or other injury.
• USER SERVICING: Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless
specifically recommended in this owner’s guide. All other servicing should be done
only by a qualified technician. This will reduce the risk of personal injury and damage
to the range.
• Storage in or on appliance: Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven, near
surface burners or in the broiler section. This includes paper, plastic and cloth items,
such as cookbooks, plasticware and towels, as well as flammable liquids. Do not use the
oven for storage. Do not store explosives, such as aerosol cans, on or near the range.
• Remove the oven door from any unused range if it is to be stored or discarded.
• Stepping, leaning or sitting on the doors or broiler section of this range can result
in serious injuries and cause damage to the range.
!
CAUTION
The following situations could cause bodily injury or property
damage.
• DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE BURNERS, AREAS NEAR THESE BURNERS,
OVEN BURNERS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF THE OVEN . Both surface
burners and oven burners may be hot even though the flame is not visible. Areas near
surface burners may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not
touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials touch these areas until they have had
sufficient time to cool. Among these areas are the cooktop, surfaces facing the cooktop,
the oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings, oven door and windows.
! WARNING
• NEVER use this appliance as a space heater to heat or warm the
room. Doing so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning and overheating
of the oven.
• Wear proper apparel. Loose fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while
using the appliance. Do not let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface
burners or interior surfaces of the oven until they have had sufficient time to cool.
• Never modify or alter the construction of the range. Do not remove leveling legs,
panels, wire covers, anti-tip brackets or any other permanent part of the product.
• When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or grease may catch fire if allowed to
become too hot.
• Do not use water or flour on grease fires. Smother the fire with a pan lid, baking soda
or use a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
• Operation of Surface Burners. When the burners are operated for the first time, a small
amount of smoke may be generated due to tape residue or manufacturing lubrication.
THIS IS NOT DANGEROUS. Operate the burners for about five minutes to rid the
burners of this material before cooking.
4
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS, Continued
• Use only dry potholders. Wet or damp potholders on hot surfaces could result in burns
from steam. Do not let the potholder touch hot heating areas. Do not use a towel or other
bulky cloth instead of a potholder.
• Use proper flame size. Adjust flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the
utensil. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame and may
result in severe burns or direct contact and ignition of clothing. Also, proper relationship
of utensil to burner will improve efficiency.
• NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom or
cover an entire rack with materials such as aluminum foil. Doing so
blocks air flow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide
poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may also trap heat, causing a fire hazard. Refer to the
cleaning section of this manual for more information on the use of aluminum foil.
! WARNING
• Placement of oven racks: Always place an oven rack in the desired location while the
oven is cool. If a rack must be moved when the oven is hot, use potholders and grasp the
rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact hot oven walls. Remove
all utensils from the rack before moving.
• Do not heat unopened food containers. Build-up of pressure may cause the container
to burst and result in injury.
• Keep the oven vent duct unobstructed. The oven vent is located along the bottom of
the backguard. Touching the surfaces in the vent area when the oven is being operated
may cause severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or near the
oven vents. These items could melt or ignite.
The range requires fresh air for proper burner combustion. Do not block the flow of air
around the base or beneath the lower front panel of the range.
• Use care when opening oven door: Stand to the side of the oven when opening the
oven door. Slowly open the door to allow hot air or steam to escape before removing or
replacing food.
• Know which knob controls each burner. Place a pan of food on the burner before
turning it on, and turn the burner off before removing the pan.
Always turn to the full LITE position when igniting top burners. Then adjust the flame
size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.
• Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend over adjacent surface
burners. To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due
to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a utensil should be positioned so
that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface burners.
• Never leave the surface burners unattended. Boilovers may cause smoking, greasy
spillovers may catch fire or a pan which has boiled dry may melt.
5
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS, Continued
• Do not place hands between the spring tension hinge and the oven door frame when
you are removing the oven door. You could pinch your fingers.
• Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The broiler pan and its insert allow
dripping fat or grease to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler. Do not
cover the insert with foil. Exposed fat or grease could ignite.
• Do not touch a hot oven light bulb with a damp cloth. A hot oven light bulb could
break it touched with a damp cloth. Disconnect the electrical service cord or shut off the
power to the oven before removing and replacing the bulb.
• Allow parts to cool to room temperature before touching or removing them from the range.
When a surface burner is first turned off, the burner and grate are hot enough to cause burns.
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of fat or grease which could catch
fire. Pay particular attention to the area underneath each surface burner. Exhaust fan
ventilating hoods and grease filters should be clean. Do not allow fat or grease to
accumulate. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire. Refer to the hood
manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
• Do not use a “cyclonic” range hood with this product. Some range hoods circulate air
by blowing downward toward the range top then drawing the air back up into the hood.
This creates a “cyclonic” air wash that is designed for electric ranges only. A “cyclonic”
hood may cause the burners of a gas range to operate improperly.
• Glazed cooking utensils: Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware,
or other glazed utensils are suitable for rangetop service without breaking, due to the sudden
change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for rangetop use.
• Do not place plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
top of the range. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons
could catch fire if place too close to the flame.
• Do not use a wok equipped with a metal ring that extends beyond the burner.
Because this ring traps heat, the burner and grate could be damaged. Also, the burner may
not work properly, creating a carbon monoxide level above current health standards.
• Do not clean the oven door gasket. The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage or move the gasket.
• Flexible Connectors: If the gas range/oven is connected to a gas supply with a metal
flexible connector, move the range/oven with CAUTION for service or cleaning.
Flexible connectors are not intended for repeated bending. Do not allow cleaners to
make contact with flexible connectors.
The connector and its fittings are designed for use only on the original installation
and are not to be reused for another appliance or at another location. Connectors
must comply with ANSI Z21.24.
6
• It’s good practice for each household to have an appropriate fire extinguisher for
use in the event of a house fire.
• Disconnect the range from electrical supply before attempting to service or move it.
NOTE: The instructions appearing in this owner’s guide are not meant to cover every
possible condition and situation that may occur. Common sense and caution must be
practiced when operating and maintaining any appliance.
On sealed burner models never attempt to operate the surface
burners without the cooktop, burner caps, and ignition wires firmly
in place. There is a risk of fire and/or explosion which could result in
personal injury or property loss.
! WARNING
ENERGY-SAVING IDEAS
Surface Cooking
Use lids when surface cooking. A lid traps steam and uses it to speed up the cooking
process. If you have a pressure cooker or vegetable steamer, use it. You’ll waste fewer
vitamins, save time and cut energy costs.
Use medium-weight, flat bottomed pans that match the flame size. Choose pans made of
metals that conduct heat well.
When cooking on a surface burner, use as little water as possible to reduce cooking time.
Oven Cooking
Preheat the oven only when a recipe tells you. Put roasts and casseroles into a cold oven;
then turn on the oven.
Opening the oven door often to check on foods wastes energy.
Use the oven to prepare complete meals. For instance, start a roast, add vegetables when
the meat is half-cooked, and then warm rolls or dessert after the main dishes are cooked.
Thaw frozen foods before cooking. Thawed food requires less cooking energy than frozen
food.
Make it a habit to turn the oven off before removing the cooked food.

Top Pilots (Electric Ignition)
Ranges equipped with electric ignition will have the top ignitor electrodes in the same
LOCATION as the familiar top burner standing pilots except for sealed burner models
that employ an ignitor for each burner. (See page 13) When a top burner knob is turned to
the LITE position ALL electrodes will spark at a rate of approximately 2 1/2 pulses
(sparks) per second.
In the event of a power failure, light the top burners by holding a lighted match near the
surface burner and turning on the surface burner.

ALIGNMENTS AND ADJUSTMENT, Continued
! WARNING
Keep appliance area clear and free from combustible materials,
gasoline, and other flammable vapors and liquids.
Do not obstruct the flow of air that is necessary for combustion and
ventilation.
3. Top Burner Valves
Adjusted by the opening or tightening of the orifice hood which is located on the valve
where it attaches to the top burner. When set for LP gas the orifice hoods are screwed
snugly on the valves. To adjust for Natural Gas: (A) Unscrew the orifice hoods until the
proper flow of gas is obtained. (B) Adjust the air shutter, which is located on the throat
of each burner, to obtain the proper mixture of gas and air to create the proper sharp
blue flame without a red or yellow tip. The properly adjusted flame is approximately
3/4'' high and has three distinct cones; the kindling point, the dark blue center cone, and
the outer mantel.
Note: "Full on" flame size illustrated.
The three position burner valve
flame height in the "Low" position
should be approximately 1/8'' high.
REMOVE SHIPPING SCREWS
FROM TOP BURNERS.
Standard Top Burner Valves
All top burner valves operate counterclockwise to open the valve and clockwise to close
the valve. To ignite the gas, depress and turn valve knob all the way to the left to obtain
"full on" position, where the gas ignites automatically from the pilot flame or electrode.
By turning the valve knob toward "off" position, valve can be adjusted to many different
heat settings which should be determined by the amount of food being cooked, the amount
of liquid, or the size utensil.
Three Position Top Burner Valves
The range may be equipped with optional three position top burners valves. The three
position burner valves have three distinct positions–Low, Medium and High. Adjust the
burners in the "High" position for the proper mixture of gas and air as described in "Top
Burner Valves." Then set the knob at the "Low" setting. Remove the knob to gain access
to the adjustment screw which is located in the valve stem.
Hold the valve stem and turn the adjustment screw until the proper flame of approximately
1/8'' is obtained. The adjustment of the "Low" position automatically adjusts the "Med"
position.
Top Burner Height
Make sure the top burners are properly positioned. The top of the burner head should be
level with the surface of the main top. To check, lay a straight edge such as a 12-inch ruler
across the burner bowl opening. The ruler should rest squarely on the top while in contact
with the burner head.
15
ALIGNMENTS AND ADJUSTMENTS, Continued
If the burner is too high (make sure burner is cool), push it down. Supply enough force
with the palm of your hand to accomplish this adjustment. To raise, pull up on the burner
support at the center of the support.
4. Oven Control (Thermostat)
The oven pilot gas selector screw is
located on this control. To change oven
pilot gas setting: (A) Remove oven control
knob by pulling straight out. The oven gas
selector is found in the lower left hand
corner indicating "LP" or "N". (B) These
letters will appear upside down reading
"N" and "LP." (C) Rotate the adjustment
screw tab to the proper setting.
Oven Pilot (Light with the oven control knob in the OFF position). The oven pilot system has
both a constant and a heater pilot flame. Because the system is a single pilot tube arrangement,
both pilots receive their supply of gas through the same tubing. These pilots are pre-set.
STANDING PILOT
THERMOSTAT “OFF” OR
OVEN AT TEMPERATURE
HEATER PILOT
THERMOSTAT “ON” OR
OVEN CALLING FOR HEAT
Heater Pilot
The heater pilot is an extension of the constant pilot. When the oven knob is placed in the
bake or broil range, gas is increased to the constant pilot causing it to enlarge. It then
becomes a heater pilot.
The heater pilot should impinge on the sensor bulb positioned at the pilot bracket. The
sensor bulb is part of the automatic safety valve. When heated by the heater pilot (45 to
60 seconds), the sensor should cause gas to be released into the burner and the burner
should ignite. If at this point ignition doesn't occur, one of three situations has happened:
1. Bulb out of bracket; flame not impinging.
2. Burner not in proper position.
3. Defective automatic safety valve.
It is essential to maintain the gas pressure constantly at 10 inches water column pressure
for ranges set for LP Gas; and 4'' water column pressure for ranges set for Natural Gas to
get proper pilot performance.
Note: Burner rates specified on the rating plate of your range apply for elevations up to
2,000 feet above sea level. For locations where altitudes are higher than 2,000 feet above
sea level the b.t.u. rated input should be reduced four percent for each 1,000 feet higher
than 2,000 feet above sea level. If this adjustment is necessary, you should contact a
qualified serviceman. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SERVICE THE RANGE YOURSELF.

ALIGNMENTS AND ADJUSTMENTS, Continued
Ovens with Pilotless Electric Spark Ignition: Free-Standing Ranges
Ranges equipped with the spark ignition system will have an oven pilot ignitor that has a
"flame sensing" feature that automatically stops the sparking once the oven pilot gas is
ignited. Turning the oven control dial on will activate an electronic module and send
pulses (sparks) to all electrodes (including the top burner electrodes) at a rate of
approximately 1 1/2 pulses (sparks) per second.
MOISTURE: Moisture can have the same effect on the oven ignitor as the pilot flame. If
sparking does not occur when the oven thermostat knob is turned on during the initial
attempt to use the oven or after several days of non-use, it COULD BE the result of
moisture build-up in the ceramic sleeve of the oven electrode. This may happen in areas
with high humidity or if food having high water content is cooked. This moisture can be
driven out of the ignitor by lighting the pilot and operating the oven for a few minutes.
Follow the instructions below for lighting the pilot.
NEVER LEAVE THE CONTROL KNOBS IN ANY POSITION OTHER THAN
"OFF" IF THE IGNITORS OR BURNERS AREN'T WORKING PROPERLY.
• With the oven control OFF open the broiler door and position yourself so you can see
the oven pilot at the back of the oven burner.
• Next turn any top burner knob to the "LITE" position while watching the oven pilot. Turn
the oven control on. If the oven pilot doesn't ignite within five seconds immediately turn
the oven control off. If the oven pilot does ignite, the oven burner should ignite within
60 seconds. If not, immediately turn the oven control off and call a serviceman.
If the oven is working, to determine if moisture was the problem wait a few minutes and
attempt to light the oven by turning the oven control dial on. If sparking occurs at the oven
electrode to ignite the oven pilot and within sixty seconds ignites the oven burner then
moisture build-up was the problem. If the oven burner doesn't ignite within 60 seconds
turn the oven control off and call the serviceman.
• If for some reason there isn't sparking, indicating the module isn't working, or there is a power
failure and oven cooking is necessary you may manually light the oven.
!
CAUTION
Make certain the oven is cool when manually lighting oven pilot.
• Open broiler door. Oven pilot is located on the left side of the oven burner at the back
of the burner.
• Hold a lighted match and reach through the broiler compartment to the oven pilot.
• While holding the lighted match near the tip of the pilot assembly, turn the oven control
dial to an ON position. Immediately remove your hand from the broiler compartment
after the pilot gas ignites. From 20 to 60 seconds after the pilot ignites, gas will flow to
the oven burner and the burner will ignite.
• Close the broiler door.
• Set desired temperature.
• When cooking is finished, turn the Oven Temperature Control to OFF. This will shut
off all gas to the oven.

CAUTION
IF THE OVEN BURNER DOES NOT IGNITE WITHIN 20 TO 60
SECONDS AFTER THE PILOT IS LIGHTED, TURN THE OVEN
TEMPERATURE CONTROL TO OFF AND WAIT FOR POWER TO BE
RESTORED. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RELIGHT THE PILOT AGAIN.
If the oven does not function properly when the power is restored, or at any other time, call
a serviceman to determine the source of the problem. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SERVICE
THE RANGE YOURSELF.
5. Automatic Oven Safety Valve
The orifice hood on the oven safety valve regulates the flow of gas to the oven burner.
This valve adjusts in the same manner as the top burner valves and is located at the base
of the oven burner in the broiler compartment of the range. To gain access, simply
remove the broiler section. When set for LP, the orifice hood is screwed snugly on the
valve. To adjust for use on Natural Gas, unscrew the orifice hood until the proper flow
of gas is obtained.
6. Oven Burner Air Shutter Adjustment
The oven burner flame should be a clean, blue flame with distinct inner cones
approximately 1/2 inch long. A soft, lazy flame with indistinct comes means too much
gas or not enough air. A noisy lifting flame means too much air. If adjustments are
necessary you must first loosen the lock screw located at the top of the air shutter, then
rotate the air shutter to the correct setting, and retighten screw.

• To correct a lifting, but distinct, blue flame-Decrease size of air shutter opening.
The air shutter should be set approximately 2/3 open for natural gas, and approximately
full open on LP gas.
The oven burner air shutter adjustment is the same on ranges with a gas pilot or electric ignition.

Ovens with Pilotless Electric Ignition: Glow Bar Ignition System (-7 Models)
System Operation
The glow-bar ignition system consists of three
main components:
1. The thermostat (or range control).
2. The glow-bar ignitor.
3. The oven gas valve (also called the safety
valve).
The thermostat, ignitor and gas valve are wired
in series.
When the thermostat knob is turned to a
selected setting, this closes a set of electrical
contacts in the thermostat applying power to the
series circuit.
NORTON GLOWBAR
THERMOSTAT
“ON”
TEMPERATURE
INCREASES
RESISTANCE
DECREASES
IGNITOR
With power applied, the ignitor begins to heat.
The electrical resistance of the ignitor will
decrease as the surface temperature of the
ignitor increases.
Current flowing in the circuit increases in
proportion to the drop in ignitor resistance.
The NORTON ignitor limits the operating
current flow in the circuit to 3.3 to 3.6 amps.
When the current has risen high enough to open
the valve, the surface temperature of the ignitor
is between 1800 to 2500 degrees F.
As gas flows out of the valve and into the
burner a portion of the gas flows across the hot
ignitor and ignition occurs.
The ignitor will remain energized when the
burner is lit. Once the oven reaches the selected
temperature, the thermostat contacts will open
and remove power from the ignitor/valve
circuit. The valve will then close after a few
seconds and the burner flame will go out.

PRESSURE REGULATOR
The pressure regulator, located on the left side of the range, at the inlet of the gas range
piping system, serves two functions.
1. Controls the flow of gas to the gas piping system. It maintains a constant pressure of
4” water column on natural gas and for LP gas, if equipped, 10” of water column.
2. Incorporates a “shut-off ” valve on some models on the gas supply system. This
valve, located on the opposite side of the oven supply tube incorporates a small “lever.”
When this lever is “up”, no gas will flow to the oven. When “down” oven gas is on. If
the ignitor glows and the oven won’t come on, check this valve.
NOTE: Sealed burner models have a “shut-off ” located at the safety valve in the rear of
the broiler area. Turn the handle on the brass valve fully clockwise to close off gas.

OPERATION OF RANGE
Using Your Range
The range may have only part of the features described within this manual. If your range
has some features which are not covered in this manual, these features will be covered in
other enclosed literature.
Top Burner Operation
Note: When boiling food, the highest temperature that can be reached is the boiling point.
When the liquid starts to boil, decrease the size of the flame until you reach the minimum
flame that will hold the boil. This will save gas. It will also lessen the possibility of
burning food or boiling food over, and help to keep your kitchen cooler. Use stable utensils
with flat bottoms and always place the utensil on the burner grate before lighting the
burner. Unstable or rounded bottom utensils will not contact properly with the grate and
will affect the cooking efficiency. Select utensils large enough to avoid spillovers, but
remember, over-sized utensils (diameters exceeding 8 1/2'') can cause the range finish to
discolor, craze or chip. Damage caused by oversized utensils, such as those sometimes
used in canning, are not covered by the warranty. The finish has been manufactured to a
commercially acceptable standard and its condition is dependent upon the care of the user.
Top Burner Valves
The top burner flame size should be adjusted so that is does not extend beyond the edge
of the cooking utensil. As a matter of safety, it's urged that you comply with these
instructions.
A high flame on a surface burner is both inefficient and unsafe. The flame should always
be adjusted so that it is no larger than the bottom of the pan. Fluctuations in flame size
could be caused by pressure variations, improperly positioned burners, damage or debris.
Preheating
Heat the oven to the desired temperature before placing the food in the oven. Preheat for
10 to 12 minutes.
Opening Oven Door
Let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food.
Arranging Oven Racks
The oven racks should be arranged before the oven is turned "ON." Place the racks so the
food is centered in the oven..
Temperature Selection
It is important to select to proper temperature setting. Never set the dial to a higher degree
than needed with the intention of lowering the setting at a later time. This will not speed
up the action. It can cause the oven to cycle slower and cause the temperatures to vary so
that cooking results may be unsatisfactory. Imagine that the control has three sections:
Low Temperature, Bake and Broil.
The Low Temperature setting has a temperature range of 140ºF to 200ºF. This setting is
used to keep food at serving temperature. The bake cycle is from 250ºF to 550ºF. This can
be termed as the very low range (250ºF to 275ºF) to extremely hot (500º to 525ºF). The
moderate baking range is 350ºF to 425ºF.
20
Baking
When baking follow the recipe instructions. Use correct ingredients, measure them
carefully, and use the correct type and size utensil suggested in the recipe. Remember to
preheat properly. Avoid frequent opening of the oven door during preheating and baking.
When baking cakes in glass baking dishes, lower the oven temperature 25ºF to prevent
browning of the bottom and sides before the top becomes brown.
Also when using glass bakeware it would be better to increase the preheat time to have
exact stabilization of the oven’s temperature. To do so allow 20 minutes time for
temperatures up to 350ºF and 30 minutes for temperatures up to 425ºF. Avoid opening the
door as much as possible.
Oven Racks
The oven racks should be arranged before the oven knob is turned to an “ON” position.
Place the racks so the food is centered in the oven, not the rack.
When more than one utensil is used, be sure to stagger them allowing space between each
one. Do not allow the utensil to touch any part of the oven, especially the glass window.
It is best to use two racks and place food so one utensil is not directly over another.
Rack Removal
Pull the oven rack forward and lift up on the front of the rack so it will clear the rack
keeper.
To replace the oven rack, guide the angled rear portion of the rack under the rack keeper
and slide the rack to the rear.
Never cover the oven racks with aluminum foil. Such practices will trap heat and cause
intense heat in spots which usually give poor results. It can damage the porcelain finish as
well as glass windows in oven doors (if equipped). 11-97
Removable Oven Bottom
First remove the racks from the oven. The
oven bottom lifts from the rear. Grasp each
side of the oven bottom and lift upward from
the rear until the bottom is clear–lift it to
remove from the front.
NOTE: If the oven bottom is replaced
incorrectly it may warp and cause
undesirable baking results.
The oven bottom has a porcelain enamel finish. To make cleaning easier, protect the
oven bottom from excessive spillovers. This is particularly important when baking a fruit
pie or other foods with high acid content. Hot fruit fillings or foods that are acidic in
content, such as milk, tomato or sauerkraut, and sauces with vinegar or lemon juice, may
cause pitting and damage to the porcelain enamel surface.
21
To protect the oven bottom surface, place a piece of aluminum foil slightly larger than the
baking dish on the rack below to catch any boilovers. It should not completely cover the
rack as this would cause uneven heat in the oven. Aluminum foil should not be placed on
the oven bottom.
If a spillover does occur on the oven bottom, allow the oven to cool first. You can clean
the bottom with soap and water, a mild abrasive cleanser, soap-filler abrasive pads or an
oven cleaner following package directions.
Broiler Compartment
The broiler pan is held in place by a wire broiler rack. To open the broiler, gently lift up and
pull forward on the drop down broiler door. Pull the broiler pan forward. It will reach a
temporary stop position. Continue to pull forward and the broiler pan will pull out to
expose the entire broiler grill surface.
Remove the broiler pan from the broiler
rack by lifting up on the front of the
broiler pan so it will clear the wire rack.
Then pull forward slightly and use both
hands to lift the pan free of the rack. To
BROILER
PAN COVER
return the pan to the broiler rack, pull
the wire rack out to the stop position.
Insert the pan into the recessed section
of the broiler rack. Slide the pan in
place under the pan retainers. Push the

compartment. Close the broiler door.
PAN
Economy Broiler
Your range may be equipped with this optional broiler. The outward appearance of the
range will be the same. To open the broiler door, lift handle up slightly to release the door
catch and then lower the door. In the broiler section there are two positions of stamped-in
oven rack guides and a broiler pan and grill. When you want to broil, take one of the oven
racks and insert it into the rack guide positions. Next, place the broiler pan and grill on
the oven rack for broiling.
Broiling
Preheat the broiler area and broil pan for a few minutes. No definite time can be given for
broiling meats because of varying thickness, amounts of fat, and personal taste. Be
careful when handling hot broiler pans; be careful of the hot grease. Serious injury
can result due to spillage of hot grease. Never leave a dirty broil pan in place, always
clean it and return it to the broiler assembly. Unauthorized broil pan substitutes should
never be used. Excess fat should be trimmed to reduce the possibility of flame up. The
meat could be ruined or fire could occur causing loss of property and bodily injury.
When broiling fatty meats, the lowest broil must be used, however, we recommend the
lowest positions at all times.
Always broil with the oven door closed. When broiling is completed, turn the dial to OFF
and remove the broil pan temporarily for cleaning.
Do not use the broiler area for storage of utensils.
22
OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT
Continuous Cleaning Feature
If your oven has the continuous cleaning feature, it will have a dull gray finish with white
speckles that has been blended with a special catalytic material. (If the oven has a glossy
finish, it is standard porcelain enamel without the continuous cleaning feature.)
Before Using Your Oven–Read These Instructions Carefully.
Using The Continuous Cleaning Oven
The catalytic finish will keep your oven presentably clean with some effort on your part.
Any time the oven is in use, the catalytic action will be working to eliminate normal
cooking spatters. Simply cook as you usually do. Average oven spatters should fade away.
If a great deal of spattering occurs during cooking, a small amount may remain on the
surface of the oven interior at the end of the cooking time. This is particularly true during
a short cooking cycle. The longer the cooking cycle, the better the catalytic action.
Cleaning time depends on the type, size and amount of soil, and oven temperature. The
cleaning time will vary from a few minutes to several hours. The oven will never get
completely clean–it will appear “presentably clean,” even though some stains or spatters
may be present.
Heavy Spillovers–Unusual Stains
The continuous cleaning oven feature will make cleanups easy. However, some spills or
food types are harder for the oven to clean without a little assistance. For heavy spillovers,
such as from an overfilled fruit pie or casserole, put a cookie sheet or aluminum foil on
the oven bottom. Be sure the foil does not cover the air openings, so do not extend foil
beyond oven bottom.
If you should get a heavy spillover on the oven bottom:
1. Brush off heavy soil with a nylon brush or plastic pad. DO NOT USE paper toweling,
cloths or sponge. Oven walls are porous and particles of these materials will rub off on
walls. Rinse area well with clean water only. Do not allow insulation under oven bottom
to become wet.
2. If spillovers harden before they can be wiped away, they may become either a brittle
crust or a varnish-type coating. The brittle crusts will loosen and flake off in time. This
process can be speeded up by GENTLY tapping crust with a wooden or plastic utensil
and then brushing crust away.
3. Any remaining soil will gradually reduce with continued oven use at normal baking
temperatures.
DO NOT USE ANY TYPE OF OVEN CLEANER, POWERED CLEANSERS, SOAP,
DETERGENT OR PASTE ON ANY CONTINUOUS CLEANING SURFACE. ALSO,
DO NOT USE ANY ABRASIVE MATERIALS, STEEL WOOL, SHARP
INSTRUMENTS OR SCRAPERS. THEY WILL DAMAGE THE FINISH.
Note: Over a period of time, wear marks may appear on the embossed rack supports. This
is normal and results from sliding the oven racks in and out of the oven. Wear marks will
not interfere with the overall cleaning action of the oven.

24
CLEANING THE RANGE
Always keep cleaning materials and chemicals in a safe place and away from children.
Know what you are using. Make sure all parts of the range are COOL before cleaning. Be
sure to replace the parts correctly.
Knobs
Pull forward on the knobs to remove them. Wash in a water solution with a mild detergent
mix. Do not use an abrasive cleaner or any abrasive action. Abrasive action will scratch
away the knob markings.
If the knobs become loose on the valve stem, spread the valve stem slightly with a small
screwdriver.
Using Commercial Oven Cleaners
Commercial oven cleaners may be used on porcelain lined ovens; however, many cleaners
are very strong, and it’s essential to follow instructions carefully. Be sure to wear rubber
gloves to protect your hands.
After using such cleaners, thoroughly rinse the oven with a solution of 1 tablespoon
vinegar to 1 cup of water.
Oven cleaners can coat or damage the thermostat sensing device (the long tube in the
oven) so that it will not respond to temperature accurately. If you use an oven cleaner, do
not let it contact the sensing bulb, or any chrome, aluminum, or plastic part of the range.
Do not apply or allow the cleaner to come in contact with any parts or surfaces other
than the oven interior.
Grates, Main Tops, Surface Burners and Sealed Burners
The grates are made of porcelain coated steel. These materials can be cleaned at the sink
with detergent or soap-filled scouring pads. Do not be alarmed when the grate loses its
shining finish. The heat from the burners will cause the grates to lose their shining finish.
NOTE: Top burner grates must be seated in the proper position with the retainer lug in
the hole provided for it. This will prevent the burner grate from rotating or tilting.
To remove the range top on standard models, first remove the grates. Lift up the front
of the main top, then grasp the top at each side and pull it toward you. On sealed burner
models, you must first remove the burner grates and burner heads.
When removing the burner head/s, the ignitor wire must be disconnected and secured in
some fashion, paper clip, tape, etc., to keep it from falling through the access hole in the
main top. Never immerse the ignitor in water. This can cause ignition problems. Clean the
burner head with a non-abrasive soap filled scouring pad, rinse thoroughly and dry
completely before reassembling. Burner heads can be dried in the oven at about 350
degrees Fahrenheit or in the dishwasher on the dry cycle. If there is a need to remove the
main top, remove the four (4) attachment screws shown on page 13. After adjustment or
cleaning, replace all parts to their original position. Care should be taken when connecting
the ignitor wire as the ceramic ignitor base could be damaged. See page 13 for instructions.
The porcelain finish top can be cleaned with detergent and warm water. A mild glass wax
can be used to shine the top.
25
CLEANING THE RANGE, Continued
Range tops finished in brushed chrome should be wiped clean of spatters or soiling after
each use. Clean with a paper towel or a damp cloth. For heavy spatters, use a mild
detergent and water. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
A light coat of oil or thin cooking oil should be applied periodically to the chrome top
surface and underside. This will help prevent moisture from penetrating the chrome surface.
Products of combustion from the top pilots as well as certain atmospheric conditions can
create an oxidation reaction on the underside of the top. This will appear as rust or in the
form of a reddish brown deposit. This will NOT AFFECT THE LIFE OF THE TOP in
comparison to the general life expectancy of the range itself.
The grate and main top should be removed to gain access to the surface burners. Remove
the burner and let it soak in hot sudsy water. Most stains will then wipe off; if not, scrub
with a strong but non-abrasive cleaning pad. Rinse the burner thoroughly.
It is very important that the burner be dry before replacing it in the range. A wet burner
will not allow the gas to ignite properly. This could result in a build-up of gas which could
result in an explosion or fire.
Aluminum Foil in Oven and Broiler
Aluminum foil when used improperly is a cause of many range fires. Make certain that
vents or air openings aren’t covered by the foil. If the vents located along the sides of the
oven bottom are blocked, poor cooking will result.
Never cover a rack completely. A piece of foil slightly larger than the utensil can be placed
on the rack beneath the utensil.
Remove and discard aluminum foil after each use. This will help prevent greases and
spilled food from accumulating and becoming a fire hazard.
Cleaners and Cleaning Materials
Do not use harsh cleaners or degreasers on or around functional parts (valves, controls,
etc., or aluminum tubing). This will damage or drastically reduce the life of the part.
Use only a mild solution of soap and water on backguards, aluminum control panels
and painted surfaces. Never use harsh abrasives or cleaning powders that may scratch or
mar the surface. Make sure the cleaners and cleaning materials are suitable for use on the
area to be cleaned. Always keep cleaning materials in a safe place. Never use a sharp metal
scraper to clean glass, porcelain, or painted surfaces.
Repair Parts
When repair parts are needed, contact the dealer from whom the range was purchased. In
case your range was purchased from a source other than an appliance dealer you may
prefer to contact the manufacturer at the address shown in this manual.
Moisture
During the initial heat-up of your range, the heat mixing with the cooler air in the oven
cavity may produce fogging of the door glass or a collection of water on the door. To
26
CLEANING THE RANGE, Continued
prevent this, open the oven door for the first few seconds of initial oven heat-up. This will
allow the moist air within the oven to escape without the forming of visible moisture on
the range. The amount of moisture will depend upon the humidity of the air and water
content of the food being cooked. Fogging and even dripping water will usually occur in
geographic locations of high humidity.
LIFT-OFF DOORS
Lift-Off Oven Door (on some models)
The oven door is removable (on some models) but it is heavy. You may need help removing
and replacing the door.
To remove the door, open it to the full open position. Raise the locking mechanism by
applying force to the locking mechanism lever. Close the door until it stops against the
locking mechanism. Grasp firmly on each side and lift the door straight up and off the
hinges.
To replace the door, position the slots in the bottom of the door squarely over the hinges.
Then lower the door slowly and evenly over both hinges at the same time.
Open the door to the full open position and press the locking mechanism back into its
original position.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLOSE THE DOOR UNTIL THIS STEP IS COMPLETE. THE
HINGE OR DOOR COULD BE DAMAGED.
