a
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.

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.
Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings. A
boilover could result and cause
smoking and greasy spillovers that
may ignite.
the cooktop
. Do not cook on a broken cooktop.
If cooktop should break, cleaning
solutions and spillovers may
penetrate the broken cooktop and
create a risk of electrical shock.
Contact a qualified technician
immediately.
mSelect 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.
l
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.
When
l
l
using
the oven
Always position oven rack(s) in
desired location while oven is cool.
If a rack must be removed while
oven is hot, do not let potholder
contact hot heating element in
oven.
Use care when opening oven door.
Let hot air or steam escape before
removing or replacing food.
Grease
l
l
minimized by venting with a hood
or open window and wiping out
excess food spills prior to selfcleaning.
Grease is flammable. Do not allow
grease to collect around cooktop
or in vents. Wipe spillovers immediately.
Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flaming pan on range 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.

Care and cleaning
l
l
Clean cooktop with care. Some
cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
If a wet paper towel is used to wipe
spills on a hot cooking area, be
careful to avoid steam burns.
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 can
cause cancer or reproductive
harm. Exposure can be

Burn and Fire Hazard
Be sure all control knobs are turned to
OFF and all indicator lights are OFF
when you are not cooking.
Someone could be burned or a fire could
start if a surface unit is accidentally left
ON.
7
NOTE: The surface elements may smoke
slightly and emit a burning odor during the
first few hours of use. This is normal. It is
caused by the insulation material of the new
ceramic cooktop elements and will not occur
again.
l
Until you get used to the settings, use the
following as a guide. For best results, start
cooking at the high setting; then turn the
control knob down to continue cooking.

l
Using the ceramic
cooktop
glass
Cooking on the ceramic glass cooktop is
almost the same as cooking on coil surface
units. There are, however, a few differences:
l The surface
unit will glow red when it is
turned on. You will see the element cycling
on (glowing red) and off - even on HIGH
setting - to maintain the proper temperature setting you have selected.
l Sliding
metal pans on ceramic glass
cooktop surface could leave marks. Wiping
off the cooktop before and after each use
will help keep the surface free from stains
and provide the most even heating. See
pages 36 and 37 for care and cleaning
suggestions.
Cookware
l
tips
Select a pan that is about the same size
as the surface unit.
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
NOTE: For best results and greater
energy efficiency, use only flat-bottomed
cookware that makes good contact with the
surface units. Cookware with rounded,
warped, ribbed (such as some porcelain
enamelware) or dented bottoms could
cause uneven heating and poor cooking
results.
You can, however, use the newer cookware available with slightly indented bottoms or very small expansion channels.
This cookware is specially designed to
provide the good contact needed for best
cooking results.
Also, woks, canners and teakettles with
flat bottoms suitable for use on your
cooktop are now available in most stores
that sell housewares.
The pan should have straight sides and a
tight-fitting 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 unit
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 sturdy, heatresistant material and be securely attached
to the pan.
With your hand, feel the bottom of your
pans while they are cool for nicks and
scratches. Nicks and scratches on pan
bottoms will scratch the ceramic glass
cooktop.
Make sure bottoms of pans are clean and
dry before using on cooktop.
Avoid spillovers on cooktop. Use pans
with tall sides.
Do not cook food directly on cooktop.
Product Damage Hazard
Do not leave an empty utensil, or one
which has boiled dry, on a hot surface
unit.
The utensil could overheat and could
damage the utensil or surface unit.
Home

l
canning
information
Use the largest surface unit for best
results.
Start with hot water. This reduces the
time the control is set on high. Reduce
heat setting to lowest position needed to
keep water boiling.
Positioning
racks
and pans
For baking/roasting
with one rack, place
the rack so the top of the food will be
centered in the oven.
Rack placement for specific foods:
FOOD
RACK POSITION
Frozen pies, large
roasts, turkeys
Lowest level or
2nd level from
bottom
Angel and bundt
cakes, most quick
breads, yeast breads,
casseroles, meats
2nd level from
bottom
Cookies, biscuits,
muffins, cakes, nonfrozen pies
2nd or 3rd level
from bottom
Personal Injury Hazard
l Always
position oven rack(s) in
desired location before turning oven
on. Be sure the rack(s) is level.
l If rack(s) must be moved while oven
is hot, use potholders or oven mitts to
protect hands.
Failure to follow the above precautions
could result in personal injury.
When baking on two racks, arrange racks
on bottom and third level from bottom.
NOTE: For recommended rack placement
when broiling, see “Broiling rack position
chart” on page 17.
9
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.
Q Place the pans so that one is not directly
over the other.
e For best results, allow 1% to 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.
Using
aluminum
foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers from pies
or casseroles.
l Place the foil on the oven rack below the rack
with the food. Turn up foil edges and make
sure foil is about 1 inch (3 cm) larger all
around than the dish holding the food.
l Do not cover
the entire rack with aluminum
foil. It will reduce air circulation and cause
poor cooking results.
l Do not line oven bottom or entire oven rack
with foil or other liners. Poor baking will result.
Electrical Shock and Fire Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements.
Failure to follow this precaution could
result in shock or fire hazard and
damage to the elements.

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.
Refer to a broiling chart in a reliable
cookbook for correct broiling times.
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 element. Meat placed too close to
the element 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. If foil is used, cut
slits in foil to line up with all openings
in broiler grid. Grease can then drain
away and cool in pan.

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:
* Use pans with flat bottoms, straight sides
and tight-fitting lids.
3 Match the pan to the surface unit size.
@Cook with a minimum of liquid or fat to
help shorten cooking time.
‘@Preheat pans only when recommended
and for the shortest time possible.
* Start food on higher heat settings, then set
surface unit control on low or off to finish
cooking. Use retained heat for cooking
when possible.

Use the more efficient surface units
instead of the oven when possible.
Turn on the surface unit only after placing
filled pan on the unit.
“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 broiling, roasting or
cooking items such as casseroles.

The Self-Cleaning cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning
the oven interior. Like with the other functions of your range, you operate the Self-Cleaning
cycle with the easy-to-use electronic control. 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.
Your oven is preset for a 3-hour SelfCleaning 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 31.)
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 burn away. Use hot water
and detergent or a soapy steel-wool pad
for cleaning.
NOTE: DO NOT clean, move or bend the
seal. Poor cleaning, baking and roasting
may result.

Remove the broiler pan grid and any
pots and pans being stored in the oven.
NOTE: You can clean the broiler pan
(without grid) in the oven if you have first
removed most of the soil by hand-cleaning
or a dishwasher. If most of the soil is not
removed, too much smoking will occur. The
chrome broiler pan grid will discolor if
cleaned in the Self-Cleaning cycle.
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 38.) 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 SelfCleaning cycle. Keep the kitchen well
ventilated by opening a window or by
turning on a vent hood or other kitchen
vent during the cycle.

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.
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
noted on page 30.

Failure to do so could result in burns or
electrical shock.
the cooktop
This cooktop is designed for easy care.
However, ceramic cooktops need to be
maintained differently than standard electric
open-coil elements. Foods spilled directly on
the cooktop will not burn off as on open-coil
elements. Because of this, the surface
should be dust-free and soil-free before
heating.
Your cooktop has been prepolished at the
factory for improved protection and
cleanability. The Cooktop Polishing Creme
(included with your unit), paper towels or a
sponge, and the razor scraper included with
your range is all you need to clean your
cooktop. For proper cleaning methods,
please review “Cleaning tips” on page 36.
Follow them after each use to ensure top
performance and to preserve that uniquely
elegant look.

aluminum containers. The container
could leave aluminum marks on the
cooktop that cannot be removed completely.
l Do not use steel wool, plastic cleaning
pads, abrasive powdered cleansers,
chlorine bleach, rust remover, ammonia
or glass cleaning products with ammonia. These could damage the cooktop
surface.
l Dropping
heavy or hard objects on the
cooktop could crack it. Be careful with
heavy skillets. Do not store jars or cans
