use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame to direct contact and may result in
ignition of clothing. Proper relation of utensil to flame will also improve cooking efficiency.
!
WARNING
Do not use stove top grills on the burner grates of sealed gas burners. If you use a stove top grill on a
sealed gas burner, it will cause incomplete combustion and can result in exposure to carbon monoxide
levels above allowable current standards. This can be hazardous to your health.
!
CA
UTION
CAUTION
Electronic controllers can be damaged by cold temperatures. When you use your appliance for the
first time, or if it has not been used for a long period of time, make sure that it has been exposed to a
temperature above 0°C/32°F for at least 3 hours before connecting it to the power supply.
Safety
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR COOKTOP
• Know which knob controls each surface heating unit. Always turn the knob to the
LITE position when igniting the burners. Visually check that burner has lit. Then adjust
the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.
• Use proper pan size. This appliance is equipped with one or more surface burners of
different sizes. Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface
burner. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the surface burner to direct
contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to the surface
burner will also improve efficiency.
• 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 the utensil should be positioned so that
it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface burners.
• Never leave surface burners unattended at high heat settings—Boilovers cause
smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Protective liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line oven bottom or any other part of the
appliance. Only use aluminum foil as recommended for baking if used as a cover placed
on the food. Any other use of protective liners or aluminum foil may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire or short circuit.
• 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 use decorative surface burner covers. If a burner is accidentally turned on,
the decorative cover will become hot and possibly melt. Burns will occur if the hot covers
are touched. Damage may also be done to the cooktop or burners because the covers
may cause overheating. Air will be blocked from the burner and cause combustion
problems.
• Do not clean or operate a broken cooktop—If cooktop should break, cleaning
solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric
shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
• Clean cooktop glass with caution—If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a
hot cooking area, be careful to avoid a steam burn. Some cleaners can produce harmful
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
• Avoid scratching the cooktop glass with sharp objects.

•
•
•
•
•
Use care when opening oven door or warmer drawer (if equipped)—Stand to the side
of the range when opening the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you
remove or replace food in the oven/ warmer drawer.
Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. The oven vent is located under the cooktop.
Touching the surfaces in this area when the oven is operating may cause severe burns.
Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or near the oven vent. These items
could melt or ignite.
Placement of oven/warmer drawer (if equipped) racks. Always place oven racks in
desired location while oven/warmer drawer (if equipped) is cool. If rack must be moved
while oven is hot use extreme caution. Use potholders and grasp the rack with both
hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot heating elements in the oven/
warmer drawer (if equipped). Remove all utensils from the rack before moving.
Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The broiler pan and its insert allow
dripping fat to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler.
Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil. Exposed fat and grease could
ignite.
Do not touch a hot light bulb with a damp cloth. Doing so could cause the bulb to
break. Disconnect the appliance or turn off the power to the appliance before removing
and replacing light bulb.
!
WARNING
Never cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack with materials such as
alminum 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.
Safety
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR RANGE
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire.
Exhaust fan ventilation hoods and grease filters should be kept clean. Do not allow
grease to accumulate on hood or filter. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire.
When you are flaming food under the hood, turn the fan on. Refer to the hood
manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
SELF CLEANING OVENS
• In the self-Cleaning cycle only clean the parts listed in this Use and Care Guide.
Before self cleaning the oven, remove the broiler pan and any utensils or foods from the
oven.
• 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.
• Do not clean door gasket—The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should
be taken not to rub, damage or move the gasket.
• Remove oven racks. Oven racks color will change if left in the oven during a selfcleaning cycle.

12 Surface Cooking
FLAME SIZE
For most cooking, start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower one to
complete the process. Use the chart below as a guide for determining proper flame size
for various types of cooking. The size and type of utensil used and the amount of food
being cooked will influence the setting needed for cooking.
For deep fat frying, use a thermometer and adjust the surface control knob accordingly.
If the fat is too cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy. If the fat is too hot, the food
will brown so quickly that the center will be undercooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too
much food at once as the food will neither brown nor cook properly.
RIGHT
WRONG
*Flame Size
High Flame
Medium Flame

Type of Cooking
Start most foods; bring water to a boil; pan broiling
Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces, gravies; steam
Keep foods cooking; poach; stew
*These settings are based on using medium-weight aluminum pans with
lids. Settings may vary when using other types of pans.
Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the utensil. A higher flame
simply wastes heat and energy, and increases your risk of being burned by the
flame.
PROPER BURNER ADJUSTMENTS
The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue
and hardly visible in a well-lighted room. Each cone of flame should be steady and sharply
defined. Adjust or clean burner if flame is yellow-orange. To clean burner, see instructions
under General Care & Cleaning.

CONVECTION BAKING
Figure 1
Air circulation during
Convection Bake
Benefits of
Convection Bake:
— Multiple rack
baking.
—No special pans
or bakeware
needed.
Use the Convection Bake feature when cooking on multiple racks is desired. The oven can
be programmed for Convection baking at any temperature between 300°F and 550°F.
Convection baking uses a fan to circulate the oven's heat evenly and continuously within
the oven (See Figure 1). This improved heat distribution allows for even cooking and
browning results at a lower temperature than conventional bake. It also gives better baking
results when using 2 or 3 racks at the same time. Breads and pastries brown more evenly.
Convection bake cooks more evenly than conventional bake. For baking efficiency, the fan
rotates slower in Convection Bake than in Convection Roast.
Note: Allow up to 6 minutes for the convection fan to start rotating.
General Convection Bake Instructions
1. Adjust the cook time for desired doneness as needed.
2. Cookies and biscuits should be baked on pans with no sides or very low sides to allow heated
air to circulate around the food. Food baked on pans with a dark finish will cook faster.
3. Make sure you set a temperature of 300°F minimum when using convection bake, or
the function will not start.
To set the oven to Convection Bake at 350°F
1. Arrange interior oven racks.
2. Turn the selector control knob to Conv Bake. The corresponding indicator light will flash.
3. Turn the temperature control knob to 350. The indicator light will stop flashing and the
oven will begin to heat. A beep will sound once the oven reaches 350°F. The indicator
light will remain on until the Selector or Temperature control knob is turned to the Off
position.
4. Place food in oven after the beep and close oven door.
5. When baking is completed, turn the temperature and selector control knobs to Off position.
CONVECTION ROASTING

This method of cooking enables you to obtain the best results when roasting. All
baking modes can be used to successfully roast in your oven. However, the
Convection Roast mode is recommended to produce meats that are deliciously
seared on the outside and succulently juicy on the inside in less time. The oven can
be programmed to convection roast at any temperature from 300°F to 550°F.
Remember to use tested recipes with times adjusted for convection roasting when
using the convection mode. For roasting efficiency, the fan rotates faster in Convection
Roast than in Convection Bake. When preparing meats for convection roasting, use
the broiler pan and insert along with a roasting rack. The roasting rack will allow to heat
to circulate around the meat.
Note: Allow up to 6 minutes for the convection fan to start rotating.
To Set the oven to Convection Roast at 350°F
1. Arrange interior oven racks and place food in oven after the beep and close oven door.
2. Turn the selector control knob to Conv Roast. The corresponding indicator light will flash.
3. Turn the temperature control knob to 350. The indicator light will stop flashing and the oven
will begin to heat. The indicator light will remain on until the Selector or Temperature
control knob is turned to the Off position.
4. When baking is completed, turn the temperature and the selector control knobs to Off.
Note: Make sure you set a temperature of 300°F minimum when using convection bake, or
the function will not start.

BROILING
Broiling is a method of cooking tender cuts of meat by direct heat under the broil element of
the oven.
Preheating
For an optimum browning, preheat the broil element for 2 minutes.
To Broil
Broil one side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and
serve. Always pull the rack out to the "stop" position before turning or removing food.
Broiling Tips
The broiler pan and it grid allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the high heat
of the broiler.
Broiling Times
Use the following table for approximate broiling times. Increase or decrease broiling times,
or move the broiling pan to a different rack position to suit for doneness. If the food you
are broiling is not listed in the table, follow the instructions provided in your cookbook and
watch the item closely.

CAUTION
DO Hand Clean Door Area
which out of the Door Gasket
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the
self-clean cycle of any wall oven. Move birds to another well ventilated room.
DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any part
of the self-cleaning oven. DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The gasket on the oven
door is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or move the
gasket. DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the gasket. Doing so could damage it. DO
NOT use aluminum foil to line the oven bottom. This may affect cooking or foil could melt
and damage the oven surface.
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking
temperatures) which eliminate soil completely or reduce it to a fine powdered ash you can
whisk away with damp cloth.
Preparing the Oven for Self-Cleaning
1. Remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the self-cleaning
cycle. To clean, use hot soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers can cause smoke or a
fire when subjected to high temperatures. DO NOT allow food spills with a high sugar or
acid content (such as tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the
surface as they may leave a dull spot even after cleaning.
2. Clean any soil from the oven frame and the door liner (see illustration). These areas
heat sufficiently during a self-clean to burn soil on. Clean with hot soapy water.
3. Remove all utensils and any foil. These items cannot withstand high cleaning
temperatures.
4. Oven racks and oven rack supports must be removed. If they are not removed the
self-cleaning cycle cannot start and the “ Racks” Indicator Light will begin to flash
indicating that you must remove the racks and rack gliders with the supports before
starting the clean cycle. When the cycle has finished and the door can be opened,
replace the oven the oven rack supports and oven racks.
26 Care & Cleaning
STARTING THE OVEN SELF-CLEAN CYCLE
If you are planning to use the oven directly after a self-clean cycle remember to allow time
for the oven to cool down and the oven door to unlock. This normally takes about one
hour. So to self-clean for 3 hours will actually take about 4 hours to complete.

Care & Cleaning
COOKTOP CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended Cleaning Creme to
the ceramic surface. A sample of that cleaning creme is supplied with your appliance and
you will find it in store. Clean and buff with a paper towel. This will make cleaning easier
when soiled from cooking. The special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective finish
on the glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the cooktop glass can cause metal
markings on the cooktop surface. These marks should be removed immediately after the
cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning cream. Metal marks can become permanent if not removed prior to future use.
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough bottoms can mark or scratch the
cooktop surface. Do not slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop. Do not use
your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the kitchen. Do not cook foods directly
on the cooktop surface without a pan. Do not drop heavy or hard objects on the glass
cooktop, they may cause it to crack.
CLEANING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE CERAMIC
GLASS COOKTOP
!
CA
UTION
CAUTION
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
!
WARNING
DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and
can chemically damage the ceramic-glass surface.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of Cleaning Creme directly to the cooktop. Use a
paper towel to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the
cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue. Do not use the
towel you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.
For heavy, burned on soil:
First, clean the surface as described above. Then, if soils remain,
protect your hand with a potholder and carefully scrape soils with a
metal razor blade scraper, holding scraper at a 30 degree angle to
the surface. Remove loosened soils with cooktop cleaning cream
and buff surface clean.

CLEANING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE CERAMIC
GLASS COOKTOP (CONTINUED)
!
CA
UTION
CAUTION
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use scrub pad.
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled or melted onto the ceramic
cooktop surface. Permanent damage (such as pitting of the cooktop surface) may occur if
not removed immediately. After turning the surface elements OFF, use a razor blade
scraper or a metal spatula with a mitt and scrape the soil from the hot surface (as illustrated on previous page). Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same method for heavy or
burned on soils.
Do not use the following on the ceramic glass cooktop:
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as
metal and some nylon pads. They may scratch the
cooktop, making it more difficult to clean.
•
Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach,
ammonia or oven cleaners, as they may etch or discolor
the cooktop.
•
Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as they
can leave soil or lint on the cooktop which can burn and
cause discoloration.
Special Caution for Aluminum Foil and Aluminum Cooking Utensils
• Aluminum foil - Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not use thin aluminum cooking utensils or allow foil to touch the ceramic cooktop under ANY circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils - The melting point of aluminum is much lower than that of other
metals. Care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans are used on the cooktop. If
allowed to boil dry, not only will the utensil be destroyed, but it may fuse to, break or
mark the ceramic glass surface, permanently damaging the cooktop surface.
CARE AND CLEANING OF STAINLESS STEEL
Special care and cleaning are required for maintaining the appearance of stainless parts.

APPLIANCE NOT LEVEL
• Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven rack. Contact installing
agent if rack and cabinet cutout flooring are not level.
• Kitchen cabinet misalignment may make oven appear to be not level. Be sure cabinets
are square and level. Contact cabinet maker to correct problem.
POOR BAKING RESULTS
• Many factors affect baking results. See Baking for hints, causes and corrections.
Solutions to Common Problems
ENTIRE OVEN DOES NOT OPERATE
• When the unit is first plugged in, or when the power supply to the range has been
interrupted, the indicator lights will flash and the control will beep. To stop the lights from
flashing, turn the selector control knob to BAKE and back to OFF. The oven cannot be
used until this step is followed.
• Be sure electrical cord is securely connected into the electrical junction box.
• Cord/plug is not installed and/or connected. Cord is not supplied with oven. Contact a
qualified servicer.
• Service wiring not complete. Contact a qualified servicer.
• Power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric company.
• Short in cord/plug. Replace cord/plug.
• Controls are not set properly. See instructions under Setting Oven Controls to set the
controls.
• House fuse has blown or circuit breaker has tripped immediately following installation.
House fuse may not be fully engaged. Check fuse and screw or engage circuit breaker
securely.
• House fuse has blown or circuit breaker has tripped after the oven has been installed
and previously operating. Contact a qualified servicer.
OVEN LIGHT DOES NOT WORK
• Burned-out or loose bulb. Follow the instructions under Changing Oven Light to replace
or tighten the bulb.
FAN NOISE DURING COOKING OPERATION
• A cooling fan may automatically turn on and off to cool internal parts. This is normal, and
the fan may continue to run even after oven is turned off.
OVEN SMOKES EXCESSIVELY DURING BROILING
• Meat too close to the broiler unit. Reposition the rack to provide more clearance
between the meat and the broiler. Preheat broil element for quick searing operation.
• Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Slash remaining fatty edges
to prevent curling, but do not cut into the lean.
• Grid on broiler pan wrong-side up. Grease does not drain into broiler pan. Always place
the grid on the broiler pan with the ribs up and the slots down to allow grease to drip into
the pan.
• Broiler pan used without grid or grid cover with foil. DO NOT use the broiler pan without
the grid or cover the grid with foil.
• Oven needs to be cleaned. Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is
necessary when broiling frequently. Old grease or food spatters cause excessive
smoking.

•
Make sure the oven door is closed.
Make sure the two oven rack ladders are removed from the oven.
Controls not set properly. Follow instructions.
Self-cleaning cycle was interrupted. Start a clean again, wait 20 seconds for the Lock
light to stop flashing, turn off the clean and wait again 20 seconds for the light to turn off.
SOIL NOT COMPLETELY REMOVED AFTER SELFCLEANING CYCLE IS COMPLETED
• Failure to hand clean oven frame and door liner outside the oven door gasket before
starting the self-clean cycle. Hand clean burned on residue with a stiff nylon brush and
water or a nylon scrubber. Do not clean the oven door gasket or it will be damaged.
FLAMES INSIDE OVEN OR SMOKE FROM VENT
• Excessive spillovers in oven. This is normal, especially for high oven temperatures, pie
spillovers or for large amounts of grease on bottom of oven. Wipe up excessive
spillovers.
