THESE
INSTRUCTIONS
Gas ranges have been thoroughly tested for safe and efficient operation. However, as with
any appliance, there are specific installation and safety precautions which must be followed
to ensure safe and satisfactory operation.
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to persons,
or damage when using the range, follow basic precautions,
including the following:
WARNING: If the Information in this manual is not followed exactly,
fire or explosion could result causing property damage, personal
injury or death.
a
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in
the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS:
l Do not try to light any appliance.
l Do not touch
any electrical switch; do not use any phone in your
building.
l Immediately
call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s phone. Follow
the gas supplier’s instructions.
l If you cannot
reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
Installation and service must be performed by a qualified installer,
service agency or the gas supplier.
General
l
Install or locate the range only in accordance with the provided Installation
Instructions. The range must be installed by a qualified installer. The range
must be properly connected to the
proper gas supply and checked for
leaks. The range must also be properly
connected to electrical supply and
grounded.
l
Gas fuels and their use in appliances can
cause minor exposures to benzene,
formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and
soot, primarily from incomplete combustion. Significant exposure to these
substances could cause cancer or
reproductive harm. Property adjusted
burners with a blue, rather than a yellow,
flame will minimize incomplete combustion. Venting with a hood or an open
window will further minimize exposure.

above the range. ChiMren could be
burned or injured while climbing on it.
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 operate the range if it is damaged
or not working properly.
Do not use the range for warming or
heating the room. Persons could be
burned or injured, or a fire could start.
Do not attempt to light the oven burner
during a power failure. Personal injury
could resuft. Reset oven controls to the
off position in the event of a power failure.
Use the range only for its intended use as
described in this manual.

Do not wear loose or hanging garments
when using the range. They could ignite
if they touch an open flame and you
coukf be burned.
Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp
potholders on hot surfaces could result
in burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch an open flame. 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
couki explode. The hot contents couki
cause burns and container particles
could cause injury.
Do not store flammable materials on or
near the range. The fumes could create
an explosion anciIor fire hazard.
Do not use the oven for storage.
Do not use aluminum foil to line burner
pans, oven bottom, or any other part of
the range. Use aluminum foil only as
recommended in this manual.
Never use a match or other flame to look
for a gas leak. Explosion and injury
could result.
Know where your main gas shutoff valve
is located.
Do not touch surface burners, areas near
surface burners or interior surfaces of
oven. Areas near surface burners and
interior surfaces of an oven become hot
enough to cause bums. During and after
use, do not touch, or let clothing or other
flammable materials contact surface
burners, areas near surface burners or
interior surfaces of oven until they have
had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces
of the range, such as the oven vent
opening, the surface near the vent
opening, the cooktop, the oven door and
window, could also become hot enough
to cause burns.
l
l
When
l
l
using
the cook-top
Make sure the utensils you use are large
enough to contain food and avoid
boilovers and spillovers. Heavy splattering or spillovers left on a range could
ignite and burn you. Pan size is especially important in deep fat frying.
Check to be sure glass cooking utensils
are safe 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.
l
Never leave surface burners unattended
at high heat settings. A boilover could
result and cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that could ignite.
*Turn pan handles inward, but not over
other surface burners. This will help
reduce the chance of burns, igniting of
flammable materials, and spills due to
bumping of the pan.
l Do not use decorative
covers or trivets
over the surface burners.
Care and cleaning
*Small amounts of formaldehyde and
carbon monoxide are given off in the
Self-Cleaning cycle from fiberglass
insulation and food decomposition.
Significant exposure to these substances
could 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.
l
When
usina
the oven
l Always
l
position the oven rack(s) in
desired location while oven is cool.
Use care when opening oven door. Let
hot air or steam escape before removing
or replacing food.
l
Grease
l
Grease is flammable. Do not allow
grease to collect around cooktop or in
vents. Wipe spillovers immediately.
l
l
l
Do not use water on grease fires. Never
pick up a flaming pan. Smother flaming
pan by covering with a well-fitted lid,
cookie sheet or flat tray. Flaming grease
outside of pan can be extinguished with
baking soda or, if available, a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
- READ
AND
SAVE
l
l
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 unless you
are instructed to do so in this Use and
Care Guide.
Do not clean door heat 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 repair or replace any part of the
range unless specifically recommended
in this manual. All other servicing should
be referred to a qualified technician.
Any additions, changes or conversions
required in order for this appliance to
satisfactorily meet the application needs
must be made by a Whirlpool@ service
company or Qualified Agency.
Disconnect the electrical supply and the
gas supply at the shutoff valve near the
range before servicing the range.

Someone could be burned or a fire
could start if a burner is accidentally
left ON.
If the flame should go out while cooking, or if there is a strong gas odor,
turn the burners OFF. Wait five
minutes for the gas odor to disappear
before relighting burner. If gas odor is
still present, see safety note on page 3.
Failure to follow these precautions
could result in explosion or fire.
Cookware
tips
No one brand of cookware is best for all
people. Knowing something about pan
materials and construction will help you
select the correct cookware for your needs.
l
NOTE: For best results and greater fuel
efficiency, use only flat-bottomed cookware in good condition.
l
The pan should have straight sides and a
tight-fiiing
l
l
l

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
burners 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 a sturdy, heatresistant material and be securely attached
to the pan.
l
l
l
Pans should be easy to clean. Check to be
sure there are no crevices, rough edges or
areas where food might collect.
Be sure pans do not tip, whether they are
full or empty.
Use cookware only as it was intended to
be used. Follow pan instructions. This is
very important for glass cookware because
some should be used only in the oven.
Other pans are marked as flameware and
may be used on the surface burners.

Extra oven rack
(roasting
rack)
position
When roasting food too large to be placed in
oven with rack in lowest position, place rack
on bottom of oven.
For proper roasting, follow these
guidelines:
l The rack must be level.
l
l
Use adequate amount of liquid (meat
juices or water) so food does not get
overdone.
Do not try to pull rack out over door.
Rack will be at the same level as door
when door is opened.
For best air circulation
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.
l Place the pans so that one is not directly
over the other.
l For best results, allow 1 X-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).
l 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.

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.
if you broil small quantities, you may
want to use a small broiler pan. They are
available in the housewares section of
many department stores.
For best broiling results, preheat at
BROIL for 5 minutes. Do not preheat with
broiler pan in place.
Broiling rack position determines how
the burner cooks your food. The lower the
position, the more broiler grid area covered. See “Broiling rack position chart” on
page 15 for more information.
To sear meat, place broiler pan at one of
the higher rack positions so that meat is
very near the flame.
Small steaks may be broiled in the higher
rack positions.
To cook large steaks and other thick cuts
of meat well done, move them to a lower
rack position after searing.
14
l
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.
Fire Hazard
Place meat the correct distance from
the burner. Meat placed too close to the
burner 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.

Energy
saving
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 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 burner control on low to finish
cooking.
l Use the more efficient surface burners
instead of the oven when possible.
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
Turn on the surface burner only after
placing filled pan on the burner grate.
“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 to bake is right after a
meal has been cooked in the oven.
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 roasting or cooking
items such as casseroles.
Keep burner pans clean for best heat
reflection.
15
Using
the automatic
The automatic MEALTIMER clock is designed to turn the oven on and off at times
you set, even when you are not around.
Delayed time baking/roasting is ideal for
foods which do not require a preheated
oven, such as meats and casseroles. Do
not use the delayed time cycle for cakes,
cooicies, etc. - undercooking will result.
Before using the MEALTIMER clock,
make sure the clock is set to the correct
time of day. (See “Setting the cloclc on
page 11.)
To delay start
automatically:
and stop
1. Position the oven rack(s) properly and
place the food in the oven.
2. Push in and turn the Start Time Knob
clockwise to the time you want baking/
roasting to start.
3. Push in and turn the Stop Time Knob
clockwise to the time you want the oven

Do not allow food to remain in oven
for more than two hours after the end
of cooking cycle.
NOTE: Do not use foods that will spoil while
waiting for cooking to start. Such foods are:
dishes with milk or eggs, cream soups, and
cooked meats or fish. Also, foods containing
baking powder or yeast will not rise properly
when cooked using delay start.
17
The oven vent
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven
through a vent located in lower part of
backguard. The vent is needed for air
circulation. Do not block the vent. Poor
baking/roasting will result.
NOTE: Never store plastics, paper or other
items that could melt or burn near the oven
vent, or any of the surface burners.
Burn Hazard
When the oven is ON, pans and pan
handles left near the oven vent could
become hot enough to burn the user
and to melt plastics. Use potholders to
move pans.
The storage

The Self-Cleaning cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning
the oven interiir. Like with the other functions of your range, you operate the Self-Cleaning
cycle with the easy-to-use controls. 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.
We recommend a 3-hour Self-Cleaning
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 21.)
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 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 bum away. Use hot water
and detergent or a soapy steel-wool pad
for cleaning.
NOTE: DO NOT clean, move or bend the

NOTE: You can clean the broiler pan and
grid in the oven if you have first removed
most of the soil by hand-cleaning or in a
dishwasher. lf most of the soil is not
removed, too much smoking will occur.
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 27.) 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 kiichen

Special
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.

l
l
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 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
