This reduces the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, or spillage if pan is accidently bumped or reached by small children. Self-Clean Oven 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 sized 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. 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. When flaming foods under the hood, turn the fan on. Cleaning Safety Clean cooktop with caution. Turn off all controls and wait for appliance parts to cool before touching or cleaning. Clean with caution.

Baking results are not as expected or differ from previous oven. • Make sure the oven vent has not been blocked. See page 17 for location. • Check to make sure range is level. • Temperatures often vary between a new oven and an old one. As ovens age, the oven temperature often “drifts” and may become hotter or cooler. See page 16 for instructions on adjusting the oven temperature. Important: It is not recommended to adjust the temperature if only one or two recipes are in question. Moisture collects on oven window or steam comes from oven vent. • This is normal when cooking foods high in moisture. • Excessive moisture was used when cleaning the window. Food is not broiling properly or smokes excessively. • Check oven rack positions. Food may be too close to element. • Broil element was not preheated. • Aluminum foil was incorrectly used. Never line the broiler insert with foil. • Oven door was closed during broiling. Leave the door open to the first stop position (about 4 inches). • Trim excess fat from meat before broiling. • A soiled broiler pan was used. • Voltage in house may be low. There is a strong odor or light smoke when oven is turned on. • This is normal for a new range and will disappear after a few uses. Initiating a clean cycle will “burn off” the odors more quickly. • Turning on a ventilation fan will help remove the smoke and/or odor. • Excessive food soils on the oven bottom. Use a self-clean cycle. Fault Codes • BAKE or LOCK may flash rapidly in the display to alert you if there is an error or a problem. If BAKE or LOCK appear in the display, press CANCEL pad.

The FlexChoice element is a fully functioning element that provides an ultra low (Warm) heat setting for holding delicate sauces and keeping cooked foods warm. It is located in the right rear position High (10): Use to bring liquid to a boil. Always reduce setting to a lower heat when liquids begin to boil or foods begin to cook. The Warm setting is located between Low and OFF. Heat settings outside of this area function as a normal element, with Low to High settings. Smoothtop Surface Notes: (Control style varies by model.) Important: When using the normal settings for preparing foods, it may take a few minutes for the cooking area to cool to the Warm heat setting. • Cooktop may emit light smoke and odor the first few times the cooktop is used. This is normal. • 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. Warming Center Use the Warming Center to keep hot cooked foods warm, such as vegetables, gravies and oven-safe dinner plates. Setting the Control: • Never attempt to lift the cooktop. 1. Push in and turn the knob. Warming temperatures are approximate and are indicated on the control as Min, 2-8 and Max. However, the control can be set to any position between Min and Max. • The smoothtop surface may appear discolored when it is hot. This is normal and will disappear when the surface cools. 2. When done, turn the control to OFF and remove food. The Hot Surface indicator light will go off when the Warming Center surface has cooled. • In the event of a potential boilover, remove the pan from the cooking surface. Important: • Never warm food for longer than one hour (eggs for 30 minutes), as food quality may deteriorate. 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. • Do not heat cold food on the Warming Center. • Heat settings will vary depending on type and amount of food. Always hold food at proper food temperatures. USDA recommends food temperatures between 140°-170° F. Cont. Pans should not extend more than 1/2 to 1-inch beyond the cooking area. 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. 10 Suggested Settings Setting • 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. Type of food Min - 2 Breads/Pastries Casseroles Gravies Eggs 2-5 Dinner Plate with Food Soups (Cream) Vegetables Sauces Stews Meats 5 - Max Fried Foods Soups (Liquid) Hot Beverages • Never slide heavy metal pans across the surface since these may scratch. To Prevent Stains • 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. Notes: • Continuously cooking on a soiled surface may/will result in a permanent stain. • Use only cookware and dishes recommended as safe for oven and cooktop use. To Prevent Other Damage • Always use oven mitts when removing food from the Warming Center as cookware and plates will be hot. • Do not allow plastic, sugar or foods with high sugar content to melt onto the hot cooktop. Should this happen, clean immediately. (See Cleaning, pages 5-6.) • All foods should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain food quality. • Never let a pan boil dry as this will damage the surface and pan. • When warming pastries and breads the cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape. • Never use cooktop as a work surface or cutting board. • Never cook food directly on the surface. • Do not use plastic wrap to cover foods. Plastic may melt on to the surface and be very difficult to clean. • 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. • 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. Tips to Protect the Smoothtop Surface • Before first use, clean the cooktop. • 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. • Clean your cooktop daily or after each use. This will keep your cooktop looking good and can prevent damage. Cookware Recommendations Cleaning (see page 6 for more information) • 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. 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. • Do not allow spills to remain on the cooking area or the cooktop trim for a long period of time. Flat Pan Tests • Never use abrasive cleansing powders or scouring pads which will scratch the cooktop. See if your pans are flat. • Never use chlorine bleach, ammonia or other cleansers not specifically recommended for use on glass-ceramic. The Ruler Test: To Prevent Marks and Scratches 2. Hold it up to the light. • Do not use glass pans. They may scratch the surface. 3. Little or no light should be visible under the ruler. • Never place a trivet or wok ring between the surface and pan. These items can mark or etch the top. The Bubble Test: 1. Place a ruler across the bottom of the pan. 1. Put 1 inch of water in the pan. Place on cooktop and turn control to High. • Do not slide aluminum pans across a hot surface. The pans may leave marks which need to be removed promptly. (See Cleaning, page 6.) 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. • Make sure the surface and the pan bottom are clean before turning on to prevent scratches. 11 Select Canning and Oversize Cookware 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. 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. Pans that are the same size as the element. Pans smaller or larger than the element by 1 inch. When canners and pots do not meet these standards, cooking times may be longer, and cooktops may be damaged. 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. Some canners are designed with smaller bases for use on smoothtop surfaces. 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. Oven Cooking Control Panel Broil Use for broiling and top browning. Clock Bake Use for baking and roasting.
