the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, or
spillage if pan is accidently bumped or reached by small
children.
CAUTION
Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the oven racks,
broiler pan, food and any other utensils. Wipe spillovers
to prevent excessive smoke and flare-ups.
Cooktop
NEVER leave surface units unattended especially when
using high heat. An unattended boilover could cause
smoking and a greasy spillover can cause a fire.
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.
This appliance is equipped with different size surface
elements. Select pans with flat bottoms large enough to
cover element. Fitting pan size to element will improve
cooking efficiency.
Do not use oven cleaners or oven liners of any kind in or
around any part of the self-clean oven.
Important Safety Notice
and Warning
GLASS-CERAMIC SURFACE: NEVER cook on 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.
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic
Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) requires the
Governor of California to publish a list of substances
known to the State of California to cause cancer or
reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn
customers of potential exposures to such substances.
Deep Fat Fryers
Use extreme caution when moving the grease pan or
disposing of hot grease. Allow grease to cool before
attempting to move pan.
Users of this appliance are hereby warned that when the
oven is engaged in the self-clean cycle, there may be
some low-level exposure to some of the listed
substances, including carbon monoxide. Exposure to
these substances can be minimized by properly venting
the oven to the outdoors by opening the windows and/or
door in the room where the appliance is located during
the self-clean cycle.
Ventilating Hoods
Clean range hood and filters frequently to prevent grease
or other flammable materials from accumulating on hood
or filter and to avoid grease fires.
When flaming foods under the hood, turn the fan on.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING PET BIRDS: Never
keep pet birds in the kitchen or in rooms where the
fumes from the kitchen could reach. Birds have a very
sensitive respiratory system. Fumes released during an
oven self-cleaning cycle may be harmful or fatal to birds.
Fumes released due to overheated cooking oil, fat,
margarine and overheated non-stick cookware may be
equally harmful.
Cleaning Safety
Clean cooktop with caution. Turn off all controls and wait
for appliance parts to cool before touching or cleaning.
Clean with caution. Use care to avoid steam burns if a wet
sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot surface.

Care & Cleaning
Self-Clean Oven
To set Self-Clean:
Important: Oven temperature must be below 400° F to
program a clean cycle.
CAUTION
1. Close the oven door.
• It is normal for parts of the range to become hot during a
self-clean cycle.
2. Press the Clean pad.
• CLEAN flashes in the display.
• To prevent damage to oven door, do not attempt to open
the door when LOCK is displayed.
3. Press the ▲ or ▼ pad.
• Avoid touching cooktop, door, window or oven vent area
during a clean cycle.
• CL-M (Clean – Medium Soil) is displayed.
If the door is not closed, beeps will sound
and “door” will display. If the door is not
closed within 45 seconds, the self-cleaning operation will
be canceled and the display will return to the time of day.
• Do not use commercial oven cleaners on the oven finish
or around any part of the oven. They will damage the
finish or parts.
4. Press the ▲ or ▼ pad to scroll through the
self-cleaning settings.
The self-clean cycle uses above-normal cooking temperatures
to automatically clean the oven interior. It is normal for flareups, smoking, or flaming to occur during cleaning if the oven
is heavily soiled. It is better to clean the oven regularly rather
than to wait until there is a heavy build-up of soil in the oven.
CL-H (Clean – Heavy Soil, 4 hours)
CL-M (Clean – Medium Soil, 3 hours)
CL-L (Clean – Light Soil, 2 hours)
During the cleaning process, the kitchen should be well
ventilated to get rid of normal odors associated with cleaning.
Choosing the soil level of the oven automatically programs
the self-cleaning time.
Before Self-Cleaning
5. After four seconds, the oven will start cleaning.
1. Turn off the oven light before cleaning. The light may burn
out during the clean cycle.

2. Remove all pans, and oven racks from the oven. The oven
racks will discolor and may not slide easily after a selfclean cycle if they are not removed.
• CLEAN will appear in the display.
• LOCK will appear in the display.
To Delay a Self-Clean Cycle:
1. Press the Delay pad.
3. Clean oven frame, door frame, area outside of gasket, and
around the opening in the door gasket with a nonabrasive
cleaner such as Bon Ami* or detergent and water. The
self-cleaning process does not clean these areas. They
should be cleaned to prevent soil from baking on during
the clean cycle. (The gasket is the seal around the oven
door and window.)
• DELAY flashes.
• 00:00 will appear in the display.
2. Press the ▲ or ▼ pad to set the amount of
time you want to delay the cycle. Delay time
can be set from ten minutes (00:10) to 11
hours, 59 minutes (11:59).
4. To prevent damage, do not clean
or rub the gasket around the oven
door. The gasket is designed to
seal in heat during the clean cycle.
3. While DELAY is flashing, press the Clean
pad.
• CLEAN will flash.
5. Wipe up excess grease or spillovers
from the oven bottom. This prevents excessive smoking,
flare-ups or flaming during the clean cycle.
4. Press the ▲ or ▼ pad.
• CL-M (Clean – Medium Soil) is displayed.
5. Press the ▲ or ▼ pad to scroll through the self-cleaning
settings.
6. Wipe up sugary and acidic spillovers such as sweet
potatoes, tomato, or milk-based sauces. Porcelain enamel
is acid-resistant, not acid-proof. The porcelain finish may
discolor if acidic spills are not wiped up before a self-clean
cycle.
CL-H (Clean – Heavy Soil, 4 hours)
CL-M (Clean – Medium Soil, 3 hours)
CL-L (Clean – Light Soil, 2 hours)
Choosing the soil level of the oven automatically programs
the self-cleaning time.

cycle. This discoloration is normal and will not affect
performance.
If the oven has already been set for a clean
cycle and you wish to set a delay:
Notes:
1. Press the Delay pad.
• If the oven door is left open, “door” will flash in the
display and a signal will beep until the door is closed
and the Clean pad is pressed again.
• DELAY flashes.
• If more than five seconds elapse between pressing the
Clean pad and the ▲ or ▼ pad, the program will
automatically return to the previous display.
• 00:00 will appear in the display.
2. Press the ▲ or ▼ pad to set the amount of
time you want to delay the cycle.
• The oven door will be damaged if the oven door is
forced to open when LOCK is still displayed.
After four seconds, CLEAN, DELAY and

that the oven is set for a delayed clean
operation. The delay time is displayed.
Cleaning Procedures
When the Self-Clean cycle starts:
• DELAY will turn off.
CAUTION
• The clean time will appear in the display.
• Be sure appliance is off and all parts are cool before
handling or cleaning. This is to avoid damage and
possible burns.
To cancel the Self-Clean cycle:
Press the Cancel pad.
• To prevent staining or discoloration, clean appliance after
each use.
• All words disappear from the display.
• All functions are canceled.
• If a part is removed, be sure it is correctly replaced.
• The time of day appears in the display.
Backguard and Cooktop –Porcelain Enamel
Porcelain enamel is glass fused on metal and may crack or
chip with misuse. It is acid resistant, not acid proof. All
spillovers, especially acidic or sugary spillovers, should be
wiped up immediately with a dry cloth.
• When cool, wash with soapy water, rinse and dry.
• Never wipe off a warm or hot surface with a damp cloth.
This may cause cracking or chipping.
• Never use oven cleaners, abrasive or caustic cleaning
agents on exterior finish of range.
During the Self-Clean Cycle
When LOCK shows in the display, the door cannot be opened.
To prevent damage to the door, do not force the door open
when LOCK is displayed.
Smoke and Smells
You may see some smoke and smell an odor the first few
times the oven is cleaned. This is normal and will lessen in
time.
Smoke may also occur if the oven is heavily soiled or if a pan
was left in the oven.
Clock and Control Pad Area
• To activate control lock for cleaning, see “Locking the
Controls” page 12.
• Wipe with a damp cloth and dry. Do not use abrasive
cleaning agents as they may scratch the surface.
• Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a cloth first.
DO NOT spray directly on control pad and display
area.
Sounds
As the oven heats, you may hear sounds of metal parts
expanding and contracting. This is normal and will not
damage the oven.
After Self-Cleaning
Control Knobs
• Remove knobs in the OFF position by pulling forward.
• Wash, rinse and dry. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents
as they may scratch the finish.
• Turn on each element to be sure the knobs have been
correctly replaced.
About one hour after the end of the self-clean cycle, LOCK
will turn off. The door can then be opened.
Some soil may leave a light gray, powdery ash. Remove
it with a damp cloth. If soil remains after wiping, that means
the clean cycle was not long enough. The soil will be
removed during the next clean cycle.
If oven racks were left in the oven and do not slide
smoothly after a clean cycle, wipe racks and rack supports
with a small amount of vegetable oil to make them easier to
move.

Surface Cooking
Surface Controls
Slow Boil: Food forms bubbles at a moderate pace. A slow
boil setting can also be used for most frying and for
maintaining the cooking of large amounts of liquids.
Use to turn on the surface elements. An infinite choice of
heat settings is available from Low to High. The knobs can
be set on or between any of the settings.
Boil: Liquid forms bubbles at a rapid pace. A fast boil setting
can also be used to brown meat, stir fry, sauté, and heat oil
for frying before turning to a lower setting. The highest 3 or 4
settings on the knob are used for these cooking
operations. The highest setting is always used to bring water
to a boil. Some elements offer an even higher speed for
boiling liquids.
Setting the Controls
1. Place pan on surface element.
2. Push in and turn the knob in either direction to the desired
heat setting.
• The control panel is marked to identify which
element the knob controls. For example, the
graphic at right indicates left front element.
CAUTION
3. There is an element indicator light on the control panel.
When any surface control knob is turned on, the light will
turn on. The light will turn off when all the surface
elements are turned off.
BEFORE COOKING
• Always place a pan on the surface unit before you turn it
on. To prevent damage to range, never operate surface
unit without a pan in place.
• NEVER use the cooktop as a storage area for food or
cookware.
When a control is turned on, a glow can be seen through
the smoothtop surface. The element will cycle on and off
to maintain the preset heat setting, even on High.
DURING COOKING
• Be sure you know which knob controls which surface
unit. Make sure you turned on the correct surface unit.
• Begin cooking on a higher heat setting then reduce to a
lower setting to complete the operation. Never use a
high heat setting for extended cooking.
• NEVER allow a pan to boil dry. This could damage the
pan and the appliance.
• NEVER touch cooktop until it has cooled. Expect some
parts of the cooktop, especially around the surface units,
to become warm or hot during cooking. Use potholders
to protect hands.
4. After cooking, turn knob to OFF. Remove pan.
Dual Element (select models)
The cooking surface has a dual element
located in the right front of the
smoothtop. This allows you to change
the size of the element.
Press the switch to the left to use the
large element or to the right to use the
small element. The selection should be
made before turning on the element.
AFTER COOKING
• Make sure surface unit is turned off.
• Clean up messy spills as soon as possible.
Suggested Heat Settings
The size and type of cookware, type and amount of food
being heated, and wattage of individual elements will determine where to set the knob for cooking operations. Some
elements have a predetermined simmer and melt setting that
will require only minor adjustment up or down depending on
the food being prepared. The other elements have settings
printed around the knobs that are also unique to those
elements. Adjust the heat settings to the numbers that give
the desired cooking results. For information on cookware and
other factors affecting heat settings, refer to Cookware
Recommendations on page 11. The following descriptions will
aid in choosing the settings that will give optimum results.
OTHER TIPS
• If cabinet storage is provided directly above cooking
surface, limit it to items that are infrequently used and
can be safely stored in an area subjected to heat.
Temperatures may be unsafe for items such as volatile
liquids, cleaners or aerosol sprays.
• NEVER leave any items, especially plastic items, on the
cooktop. The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable
items, melt or soften plastics, or increase pressure in
closed containers causing them to burst.
• NEVER allow aluminum foil, meat probes or any other
metal object, other than a pan on a surface element, to
contact heating elements.
• NEVER store heavy items above the cooktop that could
fall and damage it.
Hold or Warm: Food maintains a temperature above 140° F
without continuing to cook. Food is initially hot and then heat
is reduced. Never use a hold or warm setting to reheat cold
food.
Simmer: Food forms bubbles that barely break the
surface. Foods are between 185° F and 200° F. A simmer
setting can also be used to steam or poach foods or continue
cooking covered foods.
9
Smoothtop Surface
• If a spillover occurs while cooking, immediately clean the
spill from the cooking area while it is hot to prevent a tough
cleaning chore later. Using extreme care, wipe spill with a
clean dry towel.
Notes:
• Cooktop may emit light smoke and odor the first few
times the cooktop is used. This is normal.
• Do not allow spills to remain on the cooking area or the
cooktop trim for a long period of time.
• Smoothtop cooktops retain heat for a period of time
after the element is turned off. Turn the elements off
a few minutes before food is completely cooked and use
the retained heat to complete cooking. When the hot
surface light turns off, the cooking area will be cool
enough to touch. Because of the way they retain heat, the
smoothtop elements will not respond to changes in
settings as quickly as coil elements.
• Never use abrasive cleansing powders or scouring pads
which will scratch the cooktop.
• Never use chlorine bleach, ammonia or other cleansers not
specifically recommended for use on glass-ceramic.
To Prevent Marks and Scratches
• Do not use glass pans. They may scratch the surface.
• Never place a trivet or wok ring between the surface and
pan. These items can mark or etch the top.
• In the event of a potential boilover, remove the pan from
the cooking surface.
• Do not slide aluminum pans across a hot surface. The pans
may leave marks which need to be removed promptly. (See
Cleaning, page 6.)
• Never attempt to lift the cooktop.
• The smoothtop surface may appear discolored when it is
hot. This is normal and will disappear when the surface
cools.
• Make sure the surface and the pan bottom are clean before
turning on to prevent scratches.
• To prevent scratching or damage to the glass-ceramic top,
do not leave sugar, salt or fats on the cooking area. Wipe
the cooktop surface with a clean cloth or paper towel
before using.
Cooking Areas
The cooking areas on your range are identified by permanent
circles on the smoothtop surface. For most efficient cooking,
fit the pan size to the element size.
• Never slide heavy metal pans across the surface since
these may scratch.
Pans should not extend more than 1/2 to 1-inch beyond
the cooking area.
To Prevent Stains
When a control is turned on, a glow can be seen through the
smoothtop surface. The element will cycle on and off to
maintain the preset heat setting, even on High.
• Never use a soiled dish cloth or sponge to clean the
cooktop surface. A film will remain which may cause stains
on the cooking surface after the area is heated.
For more information on cookware, refer to Cookware
Recommendations on page 11.
• Continuously cooking on a soiled surface may/will result in
a permanent stain.
SINGLE
ELEMENT
To Prevent Other Damage
• Do not allow plastic, sugar or foods with high sugar
content to melt onto the hot cooktop. Should this happen,
clean immediately. (See Cleaning, page 6.)
DUAL ELEMENT
(SELECT MODELS)
• Never let a pan boil dry as this will damage the surface and
pan.
Hot Surface Light
The Hot Surface indicator light is located on the control panel.
The light will be illuminated when any cooking area is hot. It
will remain on, even after the control is turned off, until the
area has cooled.
• Never use cooktop as a work surface or cutting board.
• Never cook food directly on the surface.
• Do not use a small pan on a large element. Not only does
this waste energy, but it can also result in spillovers burning
onto the cooking area, which requires extra cleaning.
Tips to Protect the
Smoothtop Surface
• Do not use non-flat specialty items that are oversized or
uneven such as round bottom woks, rippled bottom and/or
oversized canners and griddles.
Cleaning (see page 6 for more information)
• Do not use foil or foil-type containers. Foil may melt onto
the glass. If metal melts on the cooktop, do not use. Call an
authorized Servicer.
• Before first use, clean the cooktop.
• Clean your cooktop daily or after each use. This will keep
your cooktop looking good and can prevent damage.

Cookware Recommendations
2. Hold it up to the light.
Using the right cookware can prevent many problems, such
as food taking longer to cook or achieving inconsistent
results. Proper pans will reduce cooking times, use less
energy, and cook food more evenly.
3. Little or no light should be visible under the ruler.
Select
The Bubble Test:
1. Put 1 inch of water in the pan. Place on cooktop and turn
control to High.
2. Watch the formation of the bubbles as the water heats.
Uniform bubbles mean good performance, and uneven
bubbles indicate hot spots and uneven cooking.
Avoid
Flat, smooth-bottom Pans with grooved or warped bottoms.
pans.
Pans with uneven bottoms do not cook
efficiently and sometimes may not
boil liquid.
Heavy-gauge pans.
Very thin-gauge metal or glass pans.
Pans that are the
same size as the
element.
Pans smaller or larger than the
element by 1 inch.
Secure handles.
Cookware with loose or broken handles.
Heavy handles that tilt the pan.
Tight-fitting lids.
Loose-fitting lids.
Flat bottom woks.
Woks with a ring-stand bottom.
Canning and
Oversize Cookware
All canners and large pots must have flat bottoms and
must be made from heavy-gauge materials. This is critical
on smoothtop surfaces. The base must not be more than
1 inch larger than the element.
When canners and pots do not meet these standards, cooking
times may be longer, and cooktops may be damaged.
Some canners are designed with smaller bases for use on
smoothtop surfaces.
Flat Pan Tests
When canning, use the High heat setting only until the
water comes to a boil or pressure is reached in the canner.
Reduce to the lowest heat setting that maintains the boil or
pressure. If the heat is not turned down, the cooktop may be
damaged.
See if your pans are flat.
The Ruler Test:
1. Place a ruler across the bottom of the pan.
