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.

Backguard and Cooktop – Porcelain Enamel
Porcelain enamel is glass fused on metal and may crack or
chip with misuse. It is acid-resistant, not acid-proof. All
spillovers, especially acidic or sugary spillovers, should be
wiped up immediately with a dry cloth.
• When cool, wash with soapy water, rinse and dry.
• Never wipe off a warm or hot surface with a damp cloth.
This may cause cracking or chipping.
• Never use oven cleaners, abrasive or caustic cleaning
agents on exterior finish of range.
During the Self-Clean Cycle
When LOCK shows in the display, the door cannot be opened.
To prevent damage to the door, do not force the door open
when LOCK is displayed.
Smoke and Smells
You may see some smoke and smell an odor the first few times
the oven is cleaned. This is normal and will lessen in time.
Smoke may also occur if the oven is heavily soiled or if a pan
was left in the oven.
Sounds
Clock and Control Pad Area
• To activate control lock for cleaning, see Locking the
Controls page 13.
• Wipe with a damp cloth and dry. Do not use abrasive
cleaning agents as they may scratch the surface.
• Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a cloth first.
DO NOT spray directly on control pad and display area.
As the oven heats, you may hear sounds of metal parts
expanding and contracting. This is normal and will not
damage the oven.
After Self-Cleaning
About one hour after the end of the self-clean cycle, LOCK will
turn off. The door can then be opened.
Control Knobs
• Remove knobs in the OFF position by pulling forward.
• Wash, rinse and dry. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents
as they may scratch the finish.
• Turn on each element to be sure the knobs have been
correctly replaced.
Some soil may leave a light gray, powdery ash. Remove it
with a damp cloth. If soil remains after wiping, that means the
clean cycle was not long enough. The soil will be removed
during the next clean cycle.
If oven racks were left in the oven and do not slide
smoothly after a clean cycle, wipe racks and rack supports
with a small amount of vegetable oil to make them easier to
move.

Surface Cooking
Surface Controls
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.
Use to turn on the surface elements. An infinite choice of
heat settings is available from Low to High. The knobs can
be set on or between any of the settings.
4. After cooking, turn knob to OFF. Remove pan.
Setting the Controls
Dual Elements
1. Place pan on surface element.
The cooking surface has two dual elements
located in the right front and left front of
the smoothtop. This allows you to change
the size of these elements.
2. Push in and turn the knob in either direction to the desired
heat setting.
• The control panel is marked to identify which
element the knob controls. For example, the
graphic at right indicates left front element.
Press the switch to the left to use the
large element or to the right to use the
small element. The selection should be
made before turning on the element.
3. There is an element indicator light on the control panel.
When any surface control knob is turned on, the light will
turn on. The light will turn off when all the surface
elements are turned off.
CAUTION
AFTER COOKING
• Make sure surface unit is turned off.
• Clean up messy spills as soon as possible.
BEFORE COOKING
• Always place a pan on the surface unit before you turn it
on. To prevent damage to range, never operate surface
unit without a pan in place.
• NEVER use the cooktop as a storage area for food or
cookware.
OTHER TIPS
• If cabinet storage is provided directly above cooking
surface, limit it to items that are infrequently used and can
be safely stored in an area subjected to heat. Temperatures may be unsafe for items such as volatile liquids,
cleaners or aerosol sprays.
• NEVER leave any items, especially plastic items, on the
cooktop. The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable
items, melt or soften plastics, or increase pressure in
closed containers causing them to burst.
• NEVER allow aluminum foil, meat probes or any other
metal object, other than a pan on a surface element, to
contact heating elements.
• NEVER store heavy items above the cooktop that could fall
and damage it.
DURING COOKING
• Be sure you know which knob controls which surface
unit. Make sure you turned on the correct surface unit.
• Begin cooking on a higher heat setting then reduce to a
lower setting to complete the operation. Never use a
high heat setting for extended cooking.
• NEVER allow a pan to boil dry. This could damage the
pan and the appliance.
• NEVER touch cooktop until it has cooled. Expect some
parts of the cooktop, especially around the surface units,
to become warm or hot during cooking. Use potholders
to protect hands.

Hot Surface Light
The Hot Surface indicator light is located on the control panel.
The light will be illuminated when any cooking area is hot. It
will remain on, even after the control is turned off, until the
area has cooled.
Med. Low (3-4): Use to continue
cooking covered foods or steam foods.
Medium (5-7): Use to maintain slow boil for large amounts
of liquids and for most frying operations.
FlexChoiceTM Element (select models)
Med. High (8-9): Use to brown meat, heat oil for deep fat
frying or sauteing. Maintain fast boil for large amounts of
liquids.
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.

• 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.
