steam. Do not let potholder
touch hot heating elements. Do
not use a towel or bulky cloth for
a potholder. It could catch on
fire.
@Keep range vents unobstructed.
@Do not heat unopened containers. They could explode. The
hot contents could cause burns
and container particles could
cause injury.
l Do not store flammable
materials on or near the range. The
fumes can create an explosion
and/or fire hazard.
When
using
the
lass cooking utensils are sa7e 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.
ONever leave surface units
unattended at high heat settings. A boilover could result
and cause smoking and
gr;;.y spillovers that may
cooktop
.Do not cook on a broken
cooktop. If cooktop should
break, cleaning solutions and
spillovers may penetrate the
broken cooktop and create a
risk of electrical shock. Contact
a qualified technician immediately.
@Select a pan with a flat bottom
that is about the same size as
the surface unit. If pan is smaller
than the surface unit, some of
the heating element will be
exposed and may result in the
i niting of clothing or potholders.
8 orrect pan size also improves
cooking efficiency.

Eaking soda or, iPavailable, a
multipurpose dry chemical or
foam-type extinguisher.
Care
l
l
and
cleaning
Clean cooktop with care. Some
cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface. If a wet paper towel is
used to wipe spills on a hot
cooking area, be careful to
avoid steam burns.
Small amounts of formaldehyde
and carbon monoxide are iven
off in the Self-Cleaning cyc9e
from fiberglass insulatron and
food decomposition. Significant
exposure to these substances
can 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.

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
Push in control knobs before turning them
to a setting. You can set them anywhere
between HI and OFF.
Surface
unit
markers
The solid dot in the surface unit marker shows
which surface unit is turned on by that knob.
Hot surface
indicator
lights
The Hot Surface Indicator Lights on the
cooktop surface will glow when the surface
units get hot. The Indicator Lights will continue
to glow as long as the surface units are too hot
to touch, even after they are turned off.
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 if a surface unit is accidentally left ON.
NOTE: The surface elements may smoke
slightly and emit a burning odor during the
first few hours of use. This is normal. It is
caused by the insulation material of the new
ceramic cooktop elements and will not occur
again.
l
Until you get used to the settings, use the
following as a guide. For best results, start
cooking at the high setting; then turn the
control knob down to continue cooking.

Cooking on the ceramic glass cooktop is
almost the same as cooking on coil surface
units. There are, however, a few differences:
l The surface
unit will glow red when it is
turned on. You will see the element cycling
on (glowing red) and off - even on HIGH
setting -to maintain the proper temperature setting you have selected.
l Sliding
metal pans on ceramic glass
cooktop surface could leave marks. Wiping
off the cooktop before and after each use
will help keep the surface free from stains
and provide the most even heating. See
pages 37 and 38 for care and cleaning
suggestions.
Cookware
1
tips
Select a pan that is about the same size
as the surface unit.
l
l
l
l
l
NOTE: For best results and greater
energy efficiency, use only flat-bottomed
cookware that makes good contact with
the surface units. Cookware with rounded,
warped, ribbed (such as some porcelain
enamelware) or dented bottoms could
cause uneven heating and poor cooking
results.
You can, however, use the newer
cookware available with slightly indented
bottoms or very small expansion channels.
This cookware is specially designed to
provide the good contact needed for best
cooking results.
Also, woks, canners and teakettles with
flat bottoms suitable for use on your
cooktop are now available in most stores
that sell housewares.
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
unit 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 sturdy, heatresistant material and be securely attached to the pan.
With your hand, feel the bottom of your
pans while they are cool for nicks and
scratches. Nicks and scratches on pan
bottoms will scratch the ceramic glass
cooktop.
Make sure bottoms of pans are clean and
dry before using on cooktop.
Avoid spillovers on cooktop. Use pans
with tall sides.
Do not cook food directly on cooktop.
Product Damage Hazard
Do not leave an empty utensil, or one
which has boiled dry, on a hot surface
unit.
The utensil could overheat and could
damage the utensil or surface unit.

canning
information
Use the largest surface unit for best
results.
Start with hot water. This reduces the
time the control is set on high. Reduce
heat setting to lowest position needed to
keep water boiling.
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:
FOOD
RACK POSITION
Frozen pies, large
roasts, turkeys
Lowest level or
2nd level from
bottom
Angel and bundt
cakes, most quick
breads, yeast breads,
casseroles, meats
2nd level from
bottom
Cookies, biscuits,
muffins, cakes, nonfrozen pies
2nd or 3rd level
from bottom
Personal Injury Hazard
l 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 potholders or oven mitts to
protect hands.
Failure to follow the above precautions
could result in personal injury.
When baking on two racks, arrange racks
on bottom and third level from bottom.
NOTE: For recommended rack placement
when broiling, see “Broiling rack position
chart” on page 16.
9
h>I.. bed*
air cirai-,ulation
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.
* Place the pans so that one is not directly
over the other.
l
For best results, allow 1% to 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).
0 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 corners on each oven
rack. Stagger pans so no pan is directly over
another.
Using
aluminum
foil
Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers from
pies or casseroles.
l
Place the foil on the oven rack below the
rack with the food. Turn up foil edges and
make sure foil is about 1 inch (3 cm)
larger all around than the dish holding the
food.
l
Do not cover the entire rack with aluminum foil. It will reduce air circulation and
cause poor cooking results.
l
Do not line oven bottom or entire oven
rack with foil or other liners. Poor baking
will result.
Electrical Shock and Fire Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements.
Failure to follow this precaution could
result in electrical shock or fire hazard
and damage to the elements.

Adjusting
the oven
temperature
control
Oven temperature controls will gradually shift
after years of use. So, even though your new
oven is properly adjusted to provide accurate
temperatures, it may cook faster or slower than
your old oven.
If, after using the oven for a period of time, you
are not satisfied with the temperature settings,
you can change them 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 locking screws inside the control
knob. Note the position of the notches.

* If you want the food to broil slower from
the start, set the Oven Temperature
Control Knob between 170°F and 325°F
(77°C and 163°C). 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 be on BROIL for
all broiling temperatures.

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.
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 you leave
it in the heated oven.
Energy
saving
Fire Hazard
Place meat the correct distance from
the element. Meat placed too close to
the element could 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 could
result in fire. If foil is used, cut slits in
foil to line up with all openings in broiler
grid. Grease can then drain away and
cool in pan.
l
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 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.
l
l
l
l
l
l
Turn on the surface unit only after placing
filled pan on the unit.
“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 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.

The Self-Cleaning cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning
the oven interior. Like with the other functions of your range, you operate the Self-Cleaning
cycle with the easy-to-use electronic control. 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. This high heat
breaks up the soil or grease and burns it
away.
Your oven is preset for a 3-hour SelfCleaning cycle. However, you can adjust the
cycle time to the amount of soil in your oven.
You can set the cycle anywhere between 2
and 4 hours. (See “Setting the controls” on
page 32.)
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.
Before
you
start
Before you start the Self-Cleaning
cycle,
make sure you:
l Hand-clean
the areas shown. 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 clean, move or bend the
seal. Poor cleaning, baking and roasting
may result.

Remove the broiler pan grid and 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 a dishwasher. If most of the soil is not
removed, too much smoking will occur.The
chrome broiler pan grid will discolor if
cleaned in the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This
will help reduce smoke during the cleaning
cycle.
Remove the oven racks from the oven if
you want them to remain shiny. You can
clean the oven racks in the Self-Cleaning
cycle, but they will become harder to slide.
(See page 39.) If you clean racks in the
Self-Cleaning cycle, place them on the 2nd
and 4th rack guides. (Guides are counted
from bottom to top.)
Heat and odors are normal during the Self
Cleaning cycle. Keep the kitchen well
ventilated by opening a window or by
turning on a vent hood or other kitchen
vent during the cycle.
Setting
the controls
1. Make sure the clock is set to the correct
time of day. (See “Setting the clock” on
page 12.)
2. Move the Lock Lever all the way to the
right-the Clean position.

Personal Injury and
Product Damage Hazard
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.
Do not leave foil in the oven during the
Self-Cleaning cycle. Foil could burn or
melt and damage the oven surface.
NOTE: 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 block the vent during the SelfCleaning cycle. Air must move freely for best
cleaning results.
Do not leave plastic utensils near the vent.
They may melt.
3. Set the cycle.

Special
l
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.
Clean the oven before it gets heavily
soiled. Cleaning a very soiled oven takes
longer and results in more smoke than
usual.
l
If the Self-Cleaning
cycle does not 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 31.

Your range is designed for ease of care. You
can do most cleaning with items found
around your home. Cleaning your range
whenever spills or soiling occurs will help to
keep it looking and operating like new.
Cleaning
the cooktop
This cooktop is designed for easy care.
However, ceramic cooktops need to be
maintained differently than standard electric
open-coil elements. Foods spilled directly on
the cooktop will not burn off as on open-coil
elements. Because of this, the surface
should be dust-free and soil-free before
heating.
Your cooktop has been prepolished at the
factory for improved protection and
cleanability. The Cooktop Polishing Creme
(included with your unit), paper towels or a
sponge, and the razor scraper included with
your range is all you need to clean your
cooktop. For proper cleaning methods,
please review “Cleaning tips” on pages 37
and 38. Follow them after each use to
ensure top performance and to preserve that
uniquely elegant look.

candy syrups) can cause pitting on the
cooktop if not removed while the ceramic
surface is still warm. Remove as soon as
possible after the spill occurs.
* Remove dark streaks, specks and
discoloration
with Cooktop Polishing
Creme.
l Remove
metal marks (from copper or
aluminum pans) with Cooktop Polishing
Creme before heating the cooktop again. If
heated before cleaning, metal marks may
not come off.
l Tiny
scratches or abrasions do not
affect cooking. In time, these will become
less visible as a result of cleaning. To
prevent scratches and abrasions, use
Cooktop Polishing Creme regularly.
