WARNING 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 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. 7 8 Safety IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN • • • • • • 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.

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 Low 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. BURNER LOCATIONS Your cooktop is equipped with different sized burners. The surface burners are located as follows: a 5 000 BTU (natural gas) burner at the right rear position; a 9 500 BTU (natural gas) burner at the center rear position; two 14 000 BTU (natural gas) burners at the left rear and center front positions; a 18 000 BTU Dual Flame (natural gas) burner at the right front; a 9 500 BTU (natural gas) at left front position.

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 Broiler Pan Insert Broiler Pan Roasting Rack 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. Setting the oven controls 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.

If the fire continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use fire extinguisher. DO NOT put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive. 23 24 Setting the oven controls SETTING BROIL When broiling, heat radiates downward from the oven broiler for even coverage. The broil pan and broil pan insert used together allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the oven broiler. DO NOT use the broil pan without the insert. DO NOT cover the broil pan insert with foil. The exposed grease could ignite. Grid ! Broiler Pan WARNING Should an oven fire occur, leave the oven door closed and turn off the oven. If the fire continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use a fire extinguisher. DO NOT put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive and water can cause a grease fire to spread and cause personal injury. To set the oven to broil 1. Place broiler pan insert on the broiler pan. Then place the food on the broiler pan insert. 2. Arrange the interior oven rack and place the broiler pan on the rack. Be sure to center the broiler pan directly under the broiler element. If preheating the broil element, position the broiler pan with food after step 5. 3. Turn Selector knob to Broil position. 4. The corresponding indicator light will flash. 5. Turn Temperature knob to Broil. The indicator light will remain on until the Selector or Temperature knob is turned to the Off position. Note: When broiling, the appliance cooling fan will turn at high speed to keep the control panel cool. Broiler Clean-Up Tips: To make cleaning easier, line the bottom of the broiler pan with aluminum foil. DO NOT cover the broiler grid with foil. To prevent grease from baking on, remove the broiler pan from the oven as soon as cooking is completed. Use hot pads because the broiler pan is extremely hot. Pour off grease. Soak the pan in HOT, soapy water. Clean the broiler pan as soon as possible after each use. If necessary, use soap-filled steel wool pads. Heavy scouring may scratch the grid. Care & Cleaning 25 USING THE SELF-CLEAN FEATURE Adhere to the Following Cleaning Precautions: • Allow the oven to cool before cleaning. • Wear rubber gloves when cleaning any exterior parts of the oven manually. DO NOT Hand Clean Door Gasket DO Hand Clean Frame During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the range can become very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave a small children unattended near the range. Before cleaning any part of the oven, be sure the oven is turned off. Wait until the oven is cool. ! CA UTION 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. ! WARNING During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the range can become very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave small children unattended near the appliance; they may be burned if they touch the hot oven door surfaces. ! CA UTION CAUTION DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use care when opening the oven door after the self-cleaning cycle. Stand to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow hot air or steam to escape. The oven may still be VERY HOT. To start a Self-Cleaning cycle: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Be sure oven is empty and the oven door is closed. Turn the selector knob to Clean position. The corresponding indicator light will flash. Turn the Temperature Control Knob to Clean position. The Lock indicator light will flash while transitioning from unlock to lock. It will stop flashing when the door is locked. NO TE NOTE If the “Racks” indicator light is flashing when the clean mode is initiated, the oven racks and rack glides with supports have not been removed. It will continue flashing until the selector knob is set back to the off position. The racks and rack glides with supports must be removed from the oven. 6. As soon as the controls are set to clean, the motor driven oven door lock will begin to close automatically. Once the door has been locked the indicator light will stop flashing and remain on. Allow about 30 seconds for the oven door lock to close. Care & Cleaning 27 GENERAL CLEANING Cleaning Various Parts of Your appliance Before cleaning any part of the appliance, be sure all controls are turned OFF and the appliance is COOL.

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. 29 30 Care & Cleaning 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.
