always turn off the oven. If the oven is not turned off and the power
resumes, the oven will begin to operate again. Once the power
resumes, reset the clock and oven function.
• Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line surface
burner pans, or oven bottom, except as suggested in this manual.
Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric
shock, or fire.
• 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.
• Use Care When Opening Oven Door or Warmer Drawer—
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.
• Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven vent is located
below the backguard. 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 Racks. Always place oven racks in desired
location while oven 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. Remove all utensils from the rack
before moving.

Setting Surface Controls
Do not place plastic
items such as salt and pepper shakers,
spoon holders or plastic wrappings
on top of the range 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.
Setting Surface Controls
Your range may be equipped with different sized surface burners. The ability to heat
food quicker and in larger volumes increases as the burner size increases.
The SIMMER burner (some models) is best used for simmering delicate sauces,
The standard burners can be used for most surface cooking needs.
In the event of an electrical power outage,
the surface burners can be lit manually.
To light a surface burner, hold a lit match
to the burner head, then slowly turn the
surface control knob to LITE. After burner
lights push in and turn knob to desired
setting. Use caution when lighting surface
burners manually.
The POWER PLUS burner(s) (some models) are best used for bringing large
quantities of liquid to temperature and when preparing larger quantities of food.
Regardless of size, always select cookware 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.
Operating the Gas Surface Burners:
1. Place cooking utensil on surface burner.
2. Push the surface control knob in and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF
3. Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position. Note: All four electronic
surface ignitors will spark at the same time. However, only the burner you are
turning on will ignite.
3. Visually check that the burner has lit.
4. Push the control knob in and turn counterclockwise to the desired flame size.
The control knobs do not have to be set at a particular setting. Use the guides
and adjust the flame as needed. DO NOT cook with the surface control knob
in the LITE position. (The electronic ignitor will continue to spark if the knob is
left in the LITE position.)
Setting Proper Surface Burner Flame Size
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.
For most cooking, start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower
one to complete the process. Use the recommendations 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.
*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; steaming.
Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.
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.
*These settings are based on using medium-weight metal or aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using
other types of pans. 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 sharp. Adjust or clean burner if flame is yellow-orange.

Cleaning section.
Self-Cleaning Oven
A Self-Cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking
temperatures) which eliminate soils completely or reduces them to a fine
powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
• DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any
part of the Self-Cleaning oven.
• 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.
• DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so
could cause damage.
• Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils and any aluminum
foil. These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures.
• Oven racks do not have to be removed. If they are not removed during the
Self-Clean cycle their color will turn slightly blue and the finish will be dull.
After the cycle is complete and the oven has cooled, rub the sides of the
oven racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of salad oil
(this will make the racks glide easier into the rack position).
• Remove any excessive spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the
Self-Cleaning cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large
spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high
temperatures. 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 surface as they may leave a dull spot even after cleaning.
• 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. These
areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water.
NOTE: Prior to setting the Self-Clean cycle, any spills remaining on the oven
bottom should be removed.
Starting the Self-Clean Cycle
For satisfactory results, use a 2 hour Self-Clean cycle for light soils and a 3 hour cycle for heavier soils. NOTE: The
kitchen area should be well ventilated using an open window, ventitlation fan or exhaust hood during the 1st Self-Clean
cycle. This will help eliminate the normal odors associated with the 1st Self-Clean cycle.
To Set the Controls for a Self-Clean Cycle:
1. Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day.
2. Press
. "— — —" appears in the display.
3. Press the
once. "3:00" appears in the display for a 3 hour cycle. To change to a 2 hour cycle press
"2:00" appears in the display.

Aluminum (Trim Pieces) & Vinyl
How to Clean
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.
Glass, Painted and Plastic
Body Parts, Control Knobs
and Decorative Trim Pieces
For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils and builtup grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on soil for 30 to 60
minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners on any of
these materials; they can scratch.
Control Panels
Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls to OFF and remove the control
knobs. To remove, pull each knob straight off the shaft. Clean as instructed above.
Squeeze excess water from the cloth before wiping the panel; especially when wiping
around the controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the
appliance. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and
the shaft, then push the knob(s) into place.
Porcelain Enamel
Burner Grates, Cooktop
Surface, Below Cooktop,
Broiler Pan & Insert, Broiler
Drawer, Door Liner and Oven
Clean burner grates, broiler pan and insert in the dishwasher and dry upon removal. If
soils are not removed, follow the cooktop cleaning instructions below.
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1
solution of clean water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with an
ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30-40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp
cloth, then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during furture heating. DO
NOT use spray oven cleaners on the range top.
Stainless Steel, Chrome Parts
Clean with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and a cloth. Do not
use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorines. Do not use harsh
scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for cleaning
stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners off from the surface as bluish
stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
Oven Racks
Remove racks. See "Removing and Replacing Oven Racks" under Before Setting
Oven Controls. Use a mild, abrasive cleaner, following manufacturer's instructions.
Rinse with clean water and dry. After cleaning the racks, rub the sides of the racks with
wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of baby oil or salad oil (this will make
the racks glide easier into the rack positions).
Oven Door
To clean oven door, wash with hot, soapy water and a clean cloth. DO NOT immerse
the door in water.
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The oven door gasket is made of a woven
material, on self cleaning models, which is essential for a good seal. Care should be
taken not to rub, damage or remove the gasket.
Cleaning the Cooktop
The cooktop is designed to make cleaning easier. Because the four burners are sealed, cleanups are easy when spillovers are
cleaned up immediately. To clean, wipe with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry.
THE COOKTOP IS NOT REMOVABLE. Do not attempt to remove or lift the cooktop.
Use caution when replacing the burner cap so the electrode is not damaged. This may cause a delayed ignition
or prevent the burner from igniting.
