To obtain the best cooking results possible, you must operate your range properly. This section gives
you important information for efficient and safe use of your range.
Using
the surface
units
Control knobs must be pushed In before
turnlng them to a setting. They can be set
anywhere between HI and OFF.
Surface

indicator
light
The SURFACE HEATING Indicator Light on the
control panel will glow when a surface unit is
turned on.
Burn and Fire Hazard
Be sure all control knobs are turned to OFF
and all indicator lights are OFF when you
are not cooking.
Someone could be burned or a fire could
start ff a surface unit is accidentally left ON.
Until you get used to the settings, us8 the
followlng as a guide. For best results, start
cooking at the high settings; then turn the control
knob down to continue cooking.
RECOMMENDED USE

Solid
element
surface
units
Before using a solid element surface unit for the
first time, heat on HI setting for five minutes. The
surface unlts will give off smoke as the protective
coating, applied at the factory, finishes bonding to
the surface.
Solid element surface units are made of heavy
cast-iron to provide even.cocking. Each surface
unit has a built-in protective limiter as a safety
feature. The limiter senses uneven cooking
temperatures and automatically reduces the heat
level. The limiter will sense uneven heat when a
pan boils dry or when a pan is removed and the
surface unit is left on. The heat level may also be
reduced automaticalfy if the bottom of the pan is
not flat or if the pan is too large or too small for
the element. This will result in bnger cooking
times.
Solid elements hold heat bnger than conventional surface units. For best cooking results, use
a high setting for only a short period of time. Then
use a lower setting to complete the cooking. You
may want to turn the solid element surface unit
OFF a few minutes before you finish cooking.
NOTES:
Solid elements stay hot for a long time. Do not
use the HI setting for long periis of time or
leave pans on hot elements when cooking is
done. Burned food and damage to the cookware ox~M resuft.
l Do not leave an empty utensil, or one which has
boiled dry, on a hot surface unit. ft can overheat
and may damage the utensil or surface unit.
l Do not use canners, woks and specialty utensils
with rounded, warped, ridged or dented
bottoms. These could cause severe overheating
which damages the utensil and/or surface unit.
l
8
Cookware
tips
There is no one brand of cooking utensil that is
best for all people. Knowing something about pan
materials and construction will help you select the
correct cooking utensils for your needs.
l Use only flat-bottomed utensils that make good
contact with the surface units. To check the
flatness of a utensil:
-Turn lt over and check the bottom of the pan
by placing a ruler across it.
-Rotate the ruler in all directions. There should
be no gaps between the pan and the ruler.
NOTE: Woks, canners and teakettles with flat
bottoms suitable for use on your cook-top are
now available in most houseware stores or
departments.
l The pan should have straight sides and a tightfitting lid.
l Choose medium to heavy gauge (thickness)
pans that are fairly lightweight. Remember that
a very heavy pan will be even heavier when
filled with food.
l The pan material (metal or glass) effects how
fast heat transfers from the surface unit through
the pan material and how evenly heat spreads
over the pan bottom.
l Handles should be made of a sturdy, heatresistant materfal and be securely attached to
the pan.
Home
canning
information
The large diameter of most water-bath or pressure canners combined with high heat settings for
long periods of time can shorten the fife of surface
units and cause damage to the cooktop.
To protect your range:
l Use flat-bottomed canners for best resutts.
Some canners have ridged bottoms (porcelain
enamel-ware) and are not recommended. They
do not make good contact with the surface unit
and cause severe overheating which damages
the cooktop.
l For best resufts, use the largest surface unit.
Also, use a canner which can be centered over
the surface unit. Large diameter canners, if not
properly centered, trap heat and can cause
damage to the cooktop.
l Do not place canner on two surface units at the
same time. Excessive heat build-up will damage
the cooktop.
l Start with hot water. This reduces the time the
control ls set on high. Reduce heat setting to
bwest posltion needed to keep water boiling.
l To prolong the life of the elements:
- Prepare small batches at a time.
- Do not use elements for canning all day.
Positioning
racks
and pans
For baking/roasting with one rack, the rack
should be placed so the top of the food will be
centered in the oven. Always leave at least 1’12 to
2 inches (4-5 cm) between the sides of the pan
and the oven walls and other pans.
For proper ceoklng, follow these guklellnes
for speclfk foods:
l Angel and bundt cakes, yeast breads, frozen
pies, large roasts and turkeys-place rack on
lowest level.
l Casseroles, muffins, most quick breads and
meats-place rack on second or third level from
bottom.
l Cookies, biscuits, cakes and non-frozen piesplace rack on second or third level from bottom.
When baking on two racks, arrange racks on
bottom and third level from bottom.
Personal Injury Hazard
Always position oven rack(s) in desired
kxzation before turning oven on. Be sure
the rack(s) is level.
l lf rack(s) must be moved while oven is
hot, use potholders or oven mitts to
protect hands.
Failure to follow the above precautions may
result in personal injury.
l
NOTE For recommended rack placement when
broiling, see a reliable cookbook.
For best air circulation
The hot air must circulate around the pans in the
oven for even heat to reach all parts of the oven.
l Place the pans so that one is not directly over
the other.
l Allow 1’12to 2 inches (4-5 cm) of space around
each pan and between pans and oven walls.
l Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at one
time.
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 comers on each oven rack.
Stagger pans so no pan is dirtily over another.
NOTE: “Oven peeking’ may cause heat loss,
longer cooking times and unsatisfactory baking or
roasting results. Use a reliable kitchen timer to
keep track of the cooking time.
9
Using
aluminum
foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers from pies or
casseroles.
l Place the foil on the oven rack below the rack
with the food. The foil should have the edges
turned up and be about 1 inch (3 cm) larger all
around than the dish holding the food.
l Do not cover the entire rack with aluminum foil.
lt will reduce air circulation and cause pcxx
cookirg results.
l Do not line oven bottom or entire oven rack with
foil or other liners. Poor baking will result.
Electrlcal Shock and Fire Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements because it will damage them and
could resuft in shock or fire hazard.

Adjusting
the oven temperature
Does your oven seem hotter or colder than your
old oven? The temperature of your old oven may
have shifted gradually without you noticing the
change. Your new oven is properly adjusted to
provide accurate temperatures. But, when
compared to your old oven, the new design may
give you different results.
ff, 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. Turn the Oven Temperature Control Knob to
the off position. Pull knob straight off and flip it
over.
2. Loosen the Ming screws inside the control
knob. Note the posltlon of the notches.
3. To lower the temperature, hold knob handle
firmly and move the tooth a notch counterclockwise to LO. Each notch equals about 5°F
(2.5%).
4. To rake the temperature, hold knob handle
firmly and move the tooth a notch clockwise.
Each notch equals about 5°F (2.5%).
Tighten the locking screws and replace the
control knob.
Broiling
1. Position the rack before turning the oven on.
See “Positioning racks and pans’ on page 9.
2. Put the broiler pan and food on the rack.
3. Close the door to the Broil Stop position (open
about 4 inches [ 10.2 cm]). The door will stay
open by itself.
4. Set the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature
Control Knob to BROIL. The OVEN HEATING
Indicator Light will come on.
NOTE: Do not preheat oven when broiling.
5. When broiling is done, turn both the Oven
Selector and Oven Temperature Control Knob
to OFF. The OVEN HEATING Indicator Light
will go off.

control
Custom
broil
lf food is cooking too fast, turn the Oven
Temperature Control Knob counterclockwise
until the OVEN HEATING Indicator Light
goes off.
l lf you want the food to broil slower from the
start, set the Oven Temperature Control Knob
between 170°F and 325OF (77% and 1WC).
These temperature settings allow the broil
heating element to cycle and to slow cooking.
The lower the temperature, the slower the
cooking.
l Fish and chicken are some foods that may cook
better if you use lower broiling temperatures.
The Oven Selector must bs on BROIL for all
brolllng temperatures.
l
NOTE: The oven door must be partly open
whenever the oven is being used to broil. Leaving
the door open allows the oven to maintain proper
temperatures.
Broiling
l
l
l
tips
Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling. They
are designed to drain excess liquid and fat
away from the ccoking surface to help prevent
spatter, smoke or fire.
Refer to a broiling chart in a reliable cookbook
for correct broiling times.
After broiling, remove the broiler pan from the
oven when you remove the food. Drippings will
bake on the pan if it is left in the heated oven.
l
l
Flre Hazard
Place meat the correct distance from the
element. Meat placed too close to the
element may spatter, smoke, burn or
catch fire during broiling.
To ensure adequate grease drainage, do
not use cookie sheets or similar pans for
broiling. Also, covering the broiler grid
with foil is not recommended. Poor
drainage of grease may result in fire. lf foil
is used, cut slits in foil to correspond with
all openings in broiler grii. Grease can
then drain away and cool in pan.

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 conserve energy
when using your cooking product.
l Use pans with flat bottoms, straight sides and
tight-fitting lids.
l Match the pan to the surface unit size.
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 unit control on low or off to finish
cooking. Use retained heat for cooking when
possible.
l Use the more efficient surface units instead of
the oven when possible.

“Oven peeking” may cause heat loss, longer
cooking times and unsatisfactory baking
results. Rely on your timer.
Bake c&es, pies or ccokiis when oven is
warm. Best time is after a meal has been
cooked in it.
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 broiling, roasting or
cooking items such as casseroles.
MEALTIMER”
The electronic MEALTIMER” control will turn the
oven on and off at times you set . . . even when
you are not around.
Automatic baking/roasting is ideal for foods

The SelfCleaning cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning the oven
interior. Like the other functions of your range, the Self-Cleaning cycle is operated with the easy-to-use
electronic controls. Please review the instructions in this section to keep your oven spotless.
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-approximately 875°F (468%).
This high heat breaks up the soil or grease and
bums it away.
Your oven is preset for a 3-hour Self-Cleaning
cycle, However, the cycle time can be adjusted to
the amount of soil in your oven. The cycle can be
set anywhere between 2 and 4 hours. (See
‘Setting the controls’on page 28.)
The graph at the right is representative of a
normal, 3-hour SetWeaning cycle. Note that the
heating stops when the 3hour setting is up, but it
takes bnger for the oven to cool enough to
unlock

Before you start the Self-Cleaning cyde. make
sure you:
1. Handclean the indicated areas. They do not
get hot enough during the cleaning cycle for
soil to burn away. Use hot water and detergent
or a soapy steel-wool pad for cleaning.
NOTE: DO NOT dean, move or bend the
fiberglass seal. Poor cleaning, baking and
roasting may result.

2. Remove the broiler pan grid and any pots and
pans being stored in the oven.
NOTE: The broiler pan (without grid) can be
cleaned in the oven if most of the soil is
removed first by handcleaning or a dishwasher. If most of the soil is not removed,
excessive smoking will occur. The chrome
broiler pan grid will discolor if deaned in the
SelfCleaning cycle.
3. Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This will
help reduce smoke during the cleaning cycle.
4. Remove the oven racks from the oven if you
want them to remain shiny. lf the oven racks
are deaned in the Self-Cleaning cycle, place
them on the 2nd and 4th rack guides. (Guides
are counted from bottom to top.)
NOTE: H oven racks are cleaned in the SelfCleaning cycle, they will become harder to
slide.
Heat and odors are normal during the SelfCleaning cycle. ll needed, remove them by
opening a window or by turning on a vent hood
or other kitchen-vent during the cycle.

Burn and ElectrIcal Shock Hazard
Solid element surface units do not glow red
when hot. Make sure all controls are OFF
and the range is COOL before cleaning.
Failure to do so can result in burns or
electrical shock
1. Make sure all surface units are off.
2.
For best results, wipe off surface units with a
damp, soft cloth and soapy water after each
use. Remove burned-on food with a soap-filled
scrubbing pad. Rinse well. The red spot in the
center of the surface unit will gradually wash
off. This is normal and will not affect the
operation of the surface unit.
NOTE: Make sure plastic scrubbing pad does
not contain metal or abrasive particles. Do not
use abrasive cleaners.
31
3. IMPORTANT: Dry the element completely
after cleaning. Turn on the element for a few
minutes to dry thoroughly. After the element
has cooled, use a paper towel to apply a thin
coat of salt-free oil to the surf= units to
season and restore the finish. Wipe excess oil
off stainless steel trim rings. Then heat 3-5
minutes. Some smoking may occur; this is
normal. ff surface units have dark spots
caused by grease and food, the oil treatment
will improve their appearance, but not eliminate the spots.
Optional: ElectroP dressing can be applied to
the surface units to improve their appearance.
