never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of
the appliance.
• DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE BURNERS,
AREAS NEAR THESE BURNERS, OVEN
HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR
SURFACES OF THE OVEN OR WARMER
DRAWER (if equipped). Both surface burners
and oven heating elements may be hot even
though surface burner flames are not visible
or oven elements are dark in color. Areas near
surface burners may become hot enough
to cause burns. During and after use, do
not touch, or let clothing or other flammable
materials touch these areas until they have had
sufficient time to cool. Among these areas are
the cooktop, surfaces facing the cooktop, the
oven vent openings and surfaces near these
openings, oven door and window.
• Never use your appliance for warming or
heating the room.
• In case of fire or gas leak, be sure to turn off
the main gas shutoff valve.
• Wear Proper Apparel—Loose-fitting or
hanging garments should never be worn
while using the appliance. Do not let clothing
or other flammable materials contact hot
surfaces.
• Do Not Use Water or Flour on Grease
Fires—Smother the fire with a pan lid, or use
baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
• When heating fat or grease, watch it closely.
Fat or grease may catch fire if allowed to
become too hot.
• Use Only Dry Potholders—Moist or damp
potholders on hot surfaces may result in
burns from steam. Do not let the potholders
touch hot heating surface units or interior oven
elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky
cloth instead of a potholder.
• Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers—
Build up of pressure may cause the
container to burst and result in injury.
• Remove the oven door from any unused
appliance if it is to be stored or discarded.
• IMPORTANT—Do not attempt to operate the

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.
Important Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS
FOR USING YOUR COOKTOP
• 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 relationship of utensil to flame will also
improve efficiency.
• 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.
• Know which knob controls each surface
burner. Place a pan of food on the burner before
turning it on, and turn the burner off before
removing the pan.
• Always turn the knob to the full LITE position
when igniting top 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 heating unit
to direct contact and may result in ignition of
clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to the
surface unit will also improve efficiency.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward
and Should 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—
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 used of protective
liners or aluminum foil may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire or a short circuit.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types
of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware,
or other glazed utensils are suitable for
cooktop service without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer’s recommendations for cooktop
use.
• Air curtain or other overhead range hoods,
which operate by blowing a downward air
flow on to a range, shall not be used in
conjunction with gas ranges other than when
the hood and range have been designed,
tested and listed by an independent test
laboratory for use in combination with each
other.
• Do not use Searing Grill on the cooktop.
The searing grill is not designed for use on the
cooktop. Doing so may result in a fire.
• 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.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS
FOR USING YOUR OVEN
• Use Care When Opening Door or Drawer—
Stand to the side of the appliance 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 is vented at the front above the oven door
or through the rear of 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/drawer (if equipped)
is cool. Remove all utensils from the rack
before removing rack. 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 oven element or interior of the oven/warmer
drawer (if equipped).

Important Safety Instructions
• Do not use a broiler pan without its insert.
The broiler pan and grid allow dripping fat to
drain and be kept away from the high heat of the
broiler.
• Do not cover your broiler or warmer drawer
(if equipped) grid 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.
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. Greasy deposits in the fan could
catch fire. Refer to the hood manufacturer’s
instructions for cleaning.
• Cleaners/aerosols—Always follow the
manufacturer’s recommended directions for use.
Be aware that excess residue from cleaners
and aerosols may ignite causing damage and/or
injury.
SELF-CLEANING OVENS
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the
parts of the oven listed in this owner’s guide.
Before self-cleaning the oven, remove all utensils
stored in the oven.
• Do not clean the oven door gasket. The door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should
be taken not to rub, damage or move the gasket.
• Do not use oven cleaners. No oven cleaner or
oven liner protective coating of any kind should
be used in or around any part of the oven.
• Remove oven racks. Oven racks will be
damaged if left in the oven during a self-cleaning
cycle.
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive
to the fumes given off during the self-clean
cycle of any range. Move birds to another well
ventilated room.
Important safety notice
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic
Enforcement Act requires the Governor of
California to publish a list of substances known to
the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive harm, and requires businesses to
warn customers of potential exposure to such
substances.

Surface Cooking
Locations of the burners
The cooktop is equipped with different sized
burners.
The surface burners are located on the cooktop as
follows (See Figure):
- a 5 000 BTU (natural gas) burner located at the
right rear position;
- a 18 000 BTU (natural gas) burner located at
the right front position;
- a 9 500 BTU (natural gas) burner located at the
left front position;
- a 16 000 BTU (natural gas) burner located at
the left rear position;
- a 9 500 BTU (natural gas) burner located at the
center position.
Placement of burner heads
and caps
For the 18 000 BTU burner :
Place the burner head over the gas orifice (Figure
2). Be careful not to damage the electrode while
placing the burner head over the orifice. Make
sure electrode fits correctly into slot in burner head.
For all burners :
Place a burner cap on each burner head (see
Figure 1), matching the cap size to the head size.
The cap for each burner has an inner locating
ring which centers the cap correctly on the burner
head. Be sure that all the burner caps and burner
heads are correctly placed BEFORE using your
appliance.
Make sure each burner cap is properly aligned and
level.

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.
Surface Cooking
Surface cooking utensils
Pans should have flat bottoms. Check for flatness by
rotating a ruler across the bottom. There should be
no gaps between the pan and ruler.
* Specialty pans such as lobster pots, griddles and
pressure cookers may be used but must conform to
the above recommended cookware requirements.
*GOOD
• Flat bottom and
straight sides.
• Tight fitting lids.
• Weight of handle
does not tilt pan. Pan
is well balanced.
• Pan sizes match the
amount of food to be
prepared and the size
of burner.
• Made of material that
conducts heat well.
• Easy to clean.
POOR
• Curved and warped
pan bottoms.
• Pan overhangs unit
by more than 2.5 cm
(1”).
• Heavy handle tilts
pan.
• Flame extends beyond
unit.
Note: Always use a utensil for its intended
purpose. Follow manufacturer’s instructions. Some
utensils were not made to be used in the oven or
on the cooktop.
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.
*Flame Size
Type of Cooking
High Flame
Start most foods; bring water to a
boil; pan broiling
Medium Flame Maintain a slow boil; thicken
sauces, gravies; steam
Low Flame
Keep foods cooking; poach; stew.
*These settings are based on using mediumweight 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.

Standard Burner: used for most all surface cooking
needs.
Large Burner: best used when bringing large
quantities of liquid to temperature and when
preparing larger quantities of food.
Regardless of size, always select a utensil
that is suitable for the amount and type of food
being prepared. Select a burner and flame size
appropriate to the pan. Never allow flames to
extend beyond the outer edge of the pan.
Your cooktop is also equipped with 270° rotation
flame control valves. These valves provide
enhanced control of the burner flame. Each burner
lights automatically from an electric ignitor when its
control knob is turned to the LITE position.
To operate the surface burner:
1. Place cooking utensil on burner.
2. Push in and turn the Surface Control knob to
(LITE). For dual flame burner, make sure to
keep the knob setting between the two
icons
until the outer ring burner is lit. Note: All electronic
ignitors will click at the same time. However, only
the burner you are turning on will ignite.
3. Visually check that the burner has lit.
4. Turn the control knob to the desired flame size. The
control knobs do not have to be set at a particular
mark. Use the guides and adjust the flame as
needed. DO NOT cook with the Surface Control
knob in the
position. (The electronic ignitor will
continue to click if left in the
premature wear.)

Do not place plastic items such as salt and
pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic
wrappings on top of the cooktop when it is in
use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders,
towels or wood spoons could catch fire if placed
too close to a flame.
Using the griddle
The griddle is intended for direct food cooking
and can be used on both sides. Do not use pans
or other cookware on the griddle. Doing so could
damage the finish. With the grate in position over
the burner, set the griddle on top of the grate
positioning the notches in the griddle over the grate

Setting the Warmer Oven
Warmer oven operation
To Operate the Warmer Oven
The purpose of the warmer oven is to keep hot
cooked foods at serving temperature. Always start
with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold
food in the warmer drawer.
All food placed in the warmer oven should be
covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain
moisture and softness. Do not cover crisp foods.
Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic
may melt onto the drawer and be very difficult
to clean.
Use only dishware, utensils and cookware
recommended for oven use in the warmer drawer.
Arranging Warmer Oven Rack Positions
Set the warmer oven rack in the vertical position as
shown below.
The rack can be used in 2 ways:
• In the upright position to allow low profile food
items to be placed both under and on top of the
rack (for example, rolls or biscuits on top of the
rack and a casserole dish under).
• In the downward position to allow you to place
light weight food items and empty dishware (for
example, rolls or pastries and dinner plates).
Use the warmer drawer to keep hot foods hot
such as: vegetables, gravies, meats, casseroles,
biscuits and rolls, pastries and heated dinner
plates.
To set a Keep Warm Temperature of
170°F:
1. Arrange interior warmer oven rack.
2. Select oven by pressing WARMER OVEN
.
3. Press KEEP WARM
.
4. Press START
.
5. The Cook Time, Timer and End Time features
can be set to control your warming time (read
their sections for directions).

About the probe function
Checking the internal temperature of your food is
the most effective way of insuring that your food
has been properly cooked. When cooking meat
such as roasts, hams or poultry you can use the
probe to check the internal temperature without any
guesswork.
Your oven will automatically change from cooking
to keep warm once the probe has reached the set
temperature.
The following temperature settings apply to the
probe function:
• Default: 170°F/76°C
• Minimum: 130°F / 54°C
• Maximum: 210°F / 98°C
IMPORTANT
• Use only the probe supplied with your
appliance; any other may result in damage to
the probe or the appliance.
• Be sure the probe is fully inserted into the
probe receptacle. The probe will not work
properly until correctly connected - Fig. 2.
• Handle the probe carefully when inserting and
removing it from the food and the receptacle.
• Do not use tongs to pull the cable when
inserting or removing it from the food or the
receptacle.
• Defrost your food completely before inserting
the probe to avoid damaging probe.
Setting the probe
• Never leave or store the probe inside the
oven when not in use.
Proper probe placement
• Always insert the probe so that the tip rests in
the center of the thickest part of the meat. Do
not allow the probe to touch bone, fat, gristle or
the pan.
• To prevent the possibility of burns, carefully
unplug the probe using a pot holder.
• For bone-in ham or lamb, insert the probe into
the center of the lowest large muscle or joint.
For dishes such as meat loaf or casseroles,
insert the probe into the center of the food. To
find the center of the food visually measure with
the probe -Fig. 3-. When cooking fish, insert the
probe just above the gill.
• For whole poultry or turkey, insert the probe into
the thickest part of the inner thigh, below the leg
-Fig. 1-.

About Perfect Turkey™
Setting Perfect Turkey™
Heated air circulates around the turkey from all
sides, sealing in juices and flavors. Poultry cooked
with this feature are crispy brown on the outside
while staying moist on the inside.
See the example below to use perfect turkey at the
default setting of 325°F and the probe at the default
setting of 180°F (82°C).
Perfect turkey combines a cook cycle with the
convection fan. The probe is used to monitor the
exact internal temperature of the turkey while
cooking. Once the turkey has reached the set
temperature, the oven will stop cooking and
change to keep warm.
Before setting the perfect turkey feature, or if you
would like to change the probe target temperature,
be sure to carefully read and follow setting the
probe instructions.
NOTE

slowly, accelerating the natural defrosting of the
food without using heat.
The dehydrate feature dries with heat from the
elements. The heat is circulated throughout the
oven by the convection fan. Use dehydrate to dry
and/or preserve foods such as fruits, vegetables,
herbs and very thin slices of meat. The Convection
fan may operate while dehydrating.
The following temperature settings apply to the

Sabbath mode
The lower oven of this appliance provides special
settings for use when observing the Jewish
Sabbath/Holidays. This mode will turn off all
audible tones or visual display changes normally
provided by the oven control. BAKE is the only
cooking features available while in the Sabbath
mode.
You must first set the BAKE feature and
temperature(s) needed for the lower oven, the
COOK TIME option if needed before setting the
Sabbath mode. Any settings made prior to setting
the Sabbath mode will be visible in the displays.

outside of the temperature range, the oven will
default to the nearest available temperature. Try to
set the desired oven temperature again.
Should a power failure or interruption occur during
the Sabbath/Holidays, the appliance will shut OFF.
When power is restored the appliance will not turn
back on automatically to the original BAKE feature
settings. SF will appear in all the control display
panels indicating a Sabbath mode failure. - Figs. 1After a power failure, the food may be safely
removed from the oven while still in the Sabbath

Setting Self-Clean Cycle
Before starting self-clean
A self-cleaning oven automatically cleans with high
temperatures that are well above those used for
normal cooking. The self-clean feature eliminates
soils completely or reduces them to a fine
powdered ash that you can later easily wipe away
with a damp cloth.
Adhere to the following precautions when
running the self-clean cycle:
• Do not use oven cleaners or protective coatings
in or around the oven interior.
• Do not clean the oven door gasket. The woven
material of the oven door gasket is essential for
a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub,
damage or remove the gasket. -Fig. 1• Do not use any cleaning materials on the door
gasket. Leaving chemical residue can damage
the door gasket.
• DO NOT force the oven door open. The
automatic door locking system can be damaged.
• Remove the broiler pan, insert, all utensils
and any aluminum foil. These items cannot
withstand high cleaning temperatures.
During the self-clean cycle, the outside of the
appliance can become very hot to the touch. DO
NOT leave small children unattended near the
appliance.
• DO NOT line the oven walls, oven racks,
bottom or any other part of the range with
aluminum foil. Doing so will stop heat
distribution, produce poor baking results and
cause permanent damage to the oven interior
(aluminum foil will melt to the interior surface of
the oven).
• Use caution when opening the door after the
self-clean cycle is finished. The oven may still
be VERY HOT.
• The health of some birds is extremely sensitive
to the fumes given off during the self-cleaning
cycle of any range. Move birds to another wellventilated room.
• All oven racks and supports MUST be removed.
If they are left in while attempting to set a selfclean cycle, the display will show REMOVE
RACKS -Fig. 2. The oven control will not start
a self-clean cycle without first removing all the
oven racks and supports.
• Remove any excessive spillovers in the oven
cavity before starting a self-clean cycle. To
clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large
spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when
subjected to high temperatures.
• Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door
liner outside the oven door gasket and the small
area at the front center of the oven bottom with
soap and water. These areas heat sufficiently to
burn soil on.
• Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or acid
content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit
juices or pie filling) to remain on the porcelain
surface, they may leave a dull spot even after
cleaning.

Setting Self-Clean Cycle
Setting self-clean
Setting delayed self-clean
The clean feature provides 3 different choices for
self-cleaning the lower oven. Set the clean for lite
(2 hrs), med (3 hrs) or heavy soils (4 hrs). The
example below shows setting the lower oven for
self-clean to begin immediately using a medium (3
hour) setting:
You may wish to set your appliance to perform a
self-clean cycle sometime later (up to 12 hours
later). The END TIME key will determine when the
cleaning will stop.
Example
Step
1. Remove racks and supports
and press UPPER OVEN
2. Press CLEAN
3. Select MED or
select lite or heavy
4. Press START
Press
UPPER
OVEN
You will need to set the END TIME out far enough
to allow for the type of clean cycle you choose
(2-3-4 hours). Remember to add 30-40 additional
minutes for the oven to cool enough and the oven
door to unlock.
The example below shows setting the upper oven
for a lite (2 hour) self-clean cycle to end at 8:00
o’clock:
Example
Step
1. Remove racks and
press UPPER OVEN
After pressing start, the motorized oven door latch
will automatically lock the door. The DOOR lock
icon will flash (Fig. 1). Once the door has locked
the DOOR lock icon will remain on through the
entire self-clean cycle.
2. Press CLEAN
After self-clean, the oven may take about 30-40
minutes to cool and unlock. A Hot message (Fig.
2) will display during this period. During cooling the
DOOR lock icon will flash and disappear indicating
that the door has unlocked.

Care and Cleaning
Special door care instructions Changing oven lights
IMPORTANT
Most oven doors contain glass that can break.
Read the following recommendations:
•
Do not close the oven door until all the interior
oven racks are fully inserted and retracted to
the back of the oven.
•
Do not hit the glass with pots, pans, or any
other object. The oven door glass may break or
even break at a later time unexpectedly.
•
Scratching, hitting, jarring or stressing the oven
door glass may weaken its structure causing
an increased risk of breakage at a later time.
•
You may use a glass cleaner on the outside
of the oven door glass. Do not spray or allow
water or the cleaner to enter or drip down into
the oven door vents. Spray cleaner on cloth
first and then wipe the oven door clean.
•
Do not use strong oven cleaners, powders or
any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the
outside of the oven door or glass.
•
Never clean the oven door gasket. The oven
door gasket should always clean during the
Self-clean cycle.
Be sure the range is unplugged and all parts
are COOL before replacing oven light. Wear
a leather-faced glove for protection against
possible broken glass or burns.
The upper oven light bulbs are located on both
side of the oven cavity and both are covered with
a glass shield. The glass shield must be in place
whenever the oven is in use.
Replacing the lower oven interior light bulbs:
1. Turn electrical power off at the main source or
unplug the appliance.
2. Remove lower oven interior light shield as
illustrated below.
3. Replace bulb with a new T-4 type 40 Watt
Halogen appliance bulb. Please note: do not
allow your fingers to touch the new bulb when
replacing. This will shorten the life of the new
bulb. Use a paper towel to cover the new bulb
when installing.
4. Replace glass shield over bulb.
5. Turn power back on again at the main source
(or plug the appliance back in).
6. The clock will then need to be reset.

Broiler pan cleaning 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 and Cleaning
Cleaning cooktop, burner
grates, caps and heads
The cooktop is designed to make cleaning easier.
Because the gas burner are sealed, cleanups are
easy when spillovers are cleaned up immediately.
Do not remove any parts from the cooktop
until they have completely cooled and are
safe to handle.
IMPORTANT
Do not use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
Cleaning the cooktop
If a spill occurs on or in the recessed or countered
areas, blot up spill with an absorbent cloth. Rinse
with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry. Do not use
harsh abrasive cleaners on the cooktop. They can
scratch the porcelain. Completely rinse any mild
cleaners used from the surface or the porcelain
cooktop may become damaged during future
heating.
Cleaning the grates
The burner grates are dishwasher safe and may be
cleaned in the dishwasher. Remove any excessive
soils before placing in the dishwasher.
IMPORTANT
● For proper gas flow and ignition of the burners
— DO NOT allow spills, food, cleaning
agents or any other material to enter the gas
orifice opening.
● The cooktop is not removable. Do not attempt
to remove or lift the cooktop.
● To avoid possible burns use care when
cleaning the cooktop. DO NOT attempt to clean
the cooktop whenever the cooktop or burner
heads are still hot.
● To avoid possible burns DO NOT attempt any
of the following cleaning instructions provided
before turning OFF all of the surface burners
and allow them to cool.
● To avoid possible burns DO NOT attempt to
operate the surface burners without the burner
caps.
Your appliance is shipped with the burner heads
and burner caps in the correct locations. Before
using your gas appliance be sure to:
● Follow installation instructions before operating.
● Remove all packing tape from cooktop area.
Burner Caps
Should you ever need to remove the burner caps
for cleaning lift the burner cap off the burner
head. Clean heavy soils with an absorbent cloth.
Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and immediately
thoroughly dry including the bottom and inside of
the cap. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners. They
can scratch the porcelain on the cap. Do not clean
burner caps in dishwasher.
When placing the burner caps, see Important note
below.
IMPORTANT
When placing the burner caps on the cooktop, be
sure the burner caps are seated firmly on top of
burner heads. Improper flame size and uneven
heating may result when any surface burners are
turned ON and the burner caps are not seated
correctly.

Ignition
port
Burner heads
Lift the burner cap from the burner head. The
surface burner heads are secured to the cooktop
and must be cleaned in place.
For proper gas flow it may be necessary to clean
the burner heads and slots. To clean, first use a
clean DAMP cloth to soak up any spills. Remove
any food from between the burner slots using a
small nonabrasive brush like a toothbrush and
afterwards wipe using a damp cloth. For stubborn
soils located in the slots, use a small-gauge wire or
needle to clean.
Should you experience ignition problems it may be
that an ignition port hole is partially blocked with
soil (see figs 1 & 2). With the burner head in place,
use a small wire gauge needle or the end of a
paper clip to clear the ignition port or ports.

Solutions to common problems
Before you call
Problem
Solution
Oven smoke
excessively
during broiling
• Meat too close to the broiler element. 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. Cut 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 aluminum foil. DO NOT use the
broiler pan without the grid or cover the grid with aluminum foil.
• Oven needs to be cleaned. Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular
cleaning is necessary when broiling frequently. Grease or food spatters cause
excessive smoking.
Soil not
