Read all instructions before using
the range.
Install or locate the range only in
accordance with the provided
Installation Instructions. It is recommended that the range be
installed by a qualified installer.
The range must be properly
connected to electrical supply
and grounded.
Do not use the range for warming or heating the room. Persons
could be burned or injured, or
a fire could start.
Do not leave children alone or
unattended in area where the
range is in use. They should
never be allowed to sit or stand
on any part of the range. They
could be burned or injured.
Do not wear loose or hanging
garments when using the range.
They could ignite if they touch a
hot surface unit or heating element and you could be burned.
Do not repair or replace any
part of the range unless specifitally recommended in this manual. All other servicing should
be referred to a qualified
technician.
Do not store flammable materials in or near the range. They
could explode or burn.
Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flaming pan on cooktop by covering with a well-fitted
lid, cookie sheet or flat tray. Fiaming grease outside of pan can
be extinguished with baking
soda or, if available, a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
Use only dry potholders. Moist
or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let potholder touch
hot heating elements. Do not use
a towel or bulky cloth for a potholder. They could catch on fire.
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
igniting of clothing or potholders.
Correct pan size also improves
cooking efficiency.
Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings. A
boil-over could result and cause
smoking and greasy spill-avers
that may ignite.
Check to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe for use on the
cooktop. 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.
Turn pan handles inward, but
not over other surface units. This
will help reduce the chance
of burns, igniting of flammable
materials, and spills due to
bumping of the pan.
Use care when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam escape

Keep range vents unobstructed.
Always position oven racks in
desired location while oven is
cool. if rack must be moved
while oven is hot, do not let
potholder contact hot heating
element in oven.
Do not clean door 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 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.
Do not store things children
might want above the range.
Children could be burned or
injured while climbing on it.
l
Do not touch surface units, areas
near units, heating elements or
interior surfaces of oven. Surface
units and heating elements may
be hot even though they are
dark in color. Areas near surface
units and interior surfaces of an
oven become hot enough to
cause burns. During and after
use, do not touch, or let clothing
or other flammable materials
contact surface units, areas near
units, heating elements or interior
surfaces of oven until they have
had sufficient time to cool. Other
surfaces of the range may
become hot enough to cause
burns; such as, the oven vent
opening, the surface near the
vent opening, the cooktop, the
oven door and window.

Solld elements stay hot for a long time. Do not use the HI sefflng for long
perlods of time or leave pans on hot elements when cooking is done.
Burned food and damage
to the cookware
could result.
Solid element
surface
units
Before placing a pan on solid element surface units for the first time, heat on
HI setting for five minutes. The surface units 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 cooking. 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 automatically 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 longer cooking times.
Solid elements hold heat longer 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.
Cookware
Pans should be the same size or larger than the surface unit to prevent boil-overs
and hot handles.
Use only flat-bottomed utensils. Flat bottoms allow maximum contact between
the pans and surface units for fast, even cooking. Pans with uneven bottoms or
with raised patterns on the bottoms are not suitable. Do not use trlvets, woks
with skirts, or canners
with concave
or ridged
bottoms.
To check your cookware for flatness, place a straight-edge across the bottom of
each piece. Move the straight-edge around. If light shows anywhere between
the pan and the straight-edge, the pan is not flat. Do not use it.
See the Cooking Guide for additional
cookware information.

Tips
Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the Self-Cleaning cycle to help
get rid of 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 Self-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 Self-Cleaning cycle longer the next time
and hand clean areas noted on page 20,

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.
