INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Please read these instructions before
attempting to install this range.
Unpacking
Check the range carton for visible damage.
If there is damage or even creases in the
carton contact the carrier, request and
inspection, and file the appropriate freight
claim. Do not refuse shipment.
Responsibility for shipping damage is
with the carrier and the dealer or end user.
Cut the shipping straps then carefully lift
the carton up from the range. This will
help eliminate possible damage to the
backguard that is packed in the top of the
range carton.
GAS CONNECTION
AREA
Remove, unwrap, and temporarily lay
aside any parts that are not attached to the
range. Make sure no parts are left in the
carton for accidental disposal. Carefully
inspect the range for damage.
The open burners are held in place with a
shipping screw to protect them while in
transit. These screws are to be removed
and discarded to give proper top burner
operation and allow easy removal for
cleaning.

WALL CLEARANCES
GAS AND ELECTRIC CONNECTIONS
Wall Clearances
All units must be installed in accordance
with minimum side wall clearances and
clearances extended vertically above the
cooking top. See FIG. 1 and FIG. 6 for
illustrations. This unit may not be
installed directly adjacent to sidewalls,
tall cabinets, tall appliances, or other
side vertical surfaces above the 36”
cooking surface height. There must be a
minimum of 6” vertical side clearance to
either side of the appliance extending
from the cooking surface to 18” above
to a maximum wall cabinet depth of 13”
(See FIG. 1 and FIG. 6).

NOTE TO MASSACHUSETTS
APPLIANCE DEALERS:
Be sure this document is included in
all gas range appliances sold to
consumers in the state of
Massachusetts.

NOTICE: Massachusetts law
requires the following:
• Appliances must be installed by a
licensed plumber or gas fitter.
• Appliances must be connected with
three (3) foot (36” maximum length)
flexible gas connector.
• A “T” handle type manual gas valve
in the gas supply line to the appliance
is required.
Plug in the electric power supply cord
and make certain that the gas stub-out is
prepared properly for the gas connection
prior to moving the range into place.
The gas supply line must be at least the
same size or greater than the inlet line of
the range. All FiveStar ranges use a ½”
NPT inlet. Check any installer-supplied
intake pipes and fittings visually and
blow them out with compressed air to
clear any dirt particles, threading chips,
or other foreign matter before installing
in a service line.
The unit should be connected to a
supply line with ½ inch black iron pipe
or a certified flexible connector (See
FIG. 3, 4, and 5). For USA installations,
flexible connectors must comply with
ANSI Z21.69 (latest edition). For
Canadian installations, comply with
CAN/CGA-6.16 (latest edition revision)
with suitable strain reliefs.
Manifold pressure should be checked
with a manometer. For natural gas 4”
wcp is required with open burners and
5” wcp is required with sealed burners.
For LP gas 10” wcp is required. The
incoming line pressure must be at least
1” wcp higher (but no more than 14”
wcp) than manifold pressure.
(a) The appliance and its individual
shut-off valve must be disconnected
from the gas supply piping system
during any pressure testing of that
system at test pressures in excess of ½
psig (3.5 kPa).
(b) The appliance must be isolated
from the gas supply piping system by
closing its individual manual shut-off
valve during any pressure testing of
the gas supply piping
system at test pressures equal to or
less than ½ psig (3.5 kPa).
We suggest that you have the dealer
from whom you purchased your new
unit install it or have the dealer
arrange with a local plumber to make
the installation. Installation must
conform to local codes. In the absence
of local codes, the installation must
conform to the National Fuel Gas
Code, ANSI Z223.1 (latest edition) in
the USA. Canadian installations must
conform to CAN 1-B149.1 or .2. To
prevent gas leaks, use an approved
sealing compound, which is resistant
to liquefied petroleum gases, on all
threaded connections.
All-gas models come equipped with a
three-wire (two conductors with
ground) supply cord. Dual fuel
ranges are not supplied with a
range connection cord. The unit
must be electrically grounded and
installed in accordance with local
codes. In the absence of local codes
the installation must comply with
ANSI/NFPA 70 (latest edition) in the
USA and C22.1 (latest edition) in
Canada.
INSTALLER: INFORM THE
CONSUMER OF THE LOCATION
OF THE SHUT-OFF VALVE.
BEFORE PLACING THE RANGE
IN OPERATION CHECK FOR
GAS LEAKS WITH A SOAPY
WATER SOLUTION. DO NOT
USE AN OPEN FLAME TO
CHECK FOR LEAKS.
NOTE: THESE INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS SHOULD
REMAIN WITH THE UNIT FOR
FUTURE REFERENCE.
Connecting the Range to Gas
Shut off the main gas supply valve
before disconnecting the old range and
leave it off until new hookup has been
completed. Do not forget to relight the
pilot on other gas appliances when you
turn the gas back on.
Because hard piping restricts movement
of the range, the use of an AGAcertified flexible metal appliance
connector is recommended unless local
codes require a hard-piped connection.
When codes require hard piping, piping
must be recessed into or enter through
the rear wall (See FIG. 1). Openings are
provided in the back cover for through
the wall piping.
For sealed burner models, the nipple
provided (See FIG. 4) must be removed
and replaced with piping as illustrated in
FIG. 5.
Never use an old connector when
installing a new range. If the hard piping
method is used, you must carefully align the
pipe; the range cannot be moved after the
connection is made.
To prevent gas leaks, put pipe joint
compound on, or wrap pipe thread with
Teflon® tape all around male (external) pipe
threads.
5. When all connections have been
made, make sure all range controls
are in the OFF position and turn on
the main gas supply valve. Use a
liquid leak detector at all joints and
connections to check for leaks in the
system.
1. Install a manual gas shut-off valve in the
gas line in an easily accessed location
outside of the range. Make sure everyone
operating the range knows where and how to
shut off the gas supply to the range.
CAUTION: DO NOT USE A
FLAME TO CHECK FOR
GAS LEAKS.
2. Install male ½” flare union adapter to the
½” NPT internal thread at inlet of the
regulator. Use a backup wrench on the
regulator fitting to avoid damage.
3. Install male ½” or ¾” flare union adapter
to the NPT internal thread of the manual
shut-off valve, taking care to back-up the
shut-off valve to keep it from turning.
4. Connect flexible metal appliance
connector to the adapter on the range.
Position the range to permit connection at
the shut-off valve or vice versa.
When using test pressures greater
than ½ psig to pressure test the gas
supply system of the residence,
disconnect the range and individual
shut-off valve from the gas supply
piping. When using test pressures of
½ psig or less to test the gas supply
system, simply isolate the range
from the gas supply system by
closing the individual shut-off
valve.

Backguard Assembly
The backguard, located in the top pack
with the range, must be installed prior to
placing the range in position for gas
hookup. See FIG. 7.
NOTE: COOKTOPS DO NOT HAVE LEVELING LEGS.
CABINET SUPPORT MUST BE LEVEL.
NEVER BLOCK THE
FLOW OF AIR FOR
COMBUSTION OR
VENTILTION. SEE FIG. 2.
Positioning/Leveling
To position the range use a lift jack or
enough manpower to lift the range
completely. Avoid sliding, pushing, or
pulling the range because this increases
the possibility of bending the legs or the
coupling connectors and could also result
in damage to the floor covering.
Ranges and cooktops must be level to
obtain proper cooking results. Ranges
adjust from 35 7/8” to 37 7/8” or 2” max.
All units must be level front-to-back and
side-to-side. See FIG. 2.
Cooktops must be installed in a cut-out
and on a level surface, as illustrated in
FIG. 6.

Oven and Griddle Burners
These burners are supplied gas by automatic
safety valves. The safety valve orifice must
be set for the gas being used. See FIG. 11.
This valve is located at the base of the oven
burner in the broiler compartment and at the
base of the griddle burner in the burner box
under the griddle assembly.
Open Burners
Flame Height
Be sure the shipping screws have been
removed from the burners. The correct
positioning should place the top of the
burner head approximately 3/8” below
the cooking surface. See FIG. 9.
Improper flame height is inefficient and
unsafe. The flame on these burners should
be blue in color and approximately 1¼” in
height. See FIG. 12.
FIG. 9 TOP BURNER
LOCATION
Open burners have LOW, MEDIUM,
and HIGH positions. Adjust gas and air
mixture in the HIGH position. To adjust
LOW turn knob to LOW, remove knob
and while holding the valve stem in the
LOW setting with a pair of pliers turn
the adjusting screw until a flame of
approximately 1/8” is obtained.
High flames on surface burners
are inefficient and unsafe. The
flame should always be adjusted
so that it is no larger than the
bottom of the pan.

GLOW BAR AND OVEN AND GRIDDLE IGNITION
• To close the valve, use a flat
screwdriver to twist the valve stems
fully clockwise so the slot aligns
side to side as shown in the
underside view below.
System Operation
The glow bar ignition system consists of
four main components.
1. The thermostat control
2. The glow bar ignitor
3. The automatic valve (also called
the safety valve)
4. The manual valve
• To open the valve, turn the stem
fully counter-clockwise so the slot
aligns front to back.
The thermostat, ignitor, and safety valve
are wired in a series circuit.
• When the thermostat knob is turned to a
selected setting, electrical contacts in the
thermostat close applying power to the
series ignition circuit.
• With power applied, the ignitor begins to
heat. Electrical resistance in the ignitor
will decrease as the temperature of the
ignitor increases.
• Electrical current in the series circuit
increases in proportion to the drop in
ignitor resistance.
• The glow bar ignitor limits the electrical
current in the circuit to 3.3 to 3.6 amps.
The surface temperature of the ignitor will
be between 1800° and 2500°F.
• When electrical current has reached the
proper amperage, the automatic safety
valve will open, releasing main burner
gas.
• The ignitor stays energized while the
burner is lit. Once the selected
temperature is reached, the thermostat
contacts will open and remove power from
the ignition circuit. The automatic safety
valve will close after a few seconds, and
the burner flame will go out.

SERIES IGNITOR/VALVE
CIRCUIT
Manual Shut-Off Valves
Each cooking section on the range that is
operated by glow bar ignition (gas oven, etc)
is under the control of a manual gas shut-off
valve.
Manual shut-off valves are located on the
underside of the control panel. Open the oven
door to access the slotted valve stems with a
flat blade screwdriver.
Note: On FiveStar cooktops, a
rectangular hole is located on the
underside of the control panel.
Reach up through this hole with the
screwdriver in order to access the
griddle shut-off valve.
Control Operation
Thermostat controls for sections
with glow bar ignition operate as
usual. Lightly press in the control
knob and turn counter-clockwise to
the desired temperature setting. An
indicator light will illuminate next
to the control knob whenever the
thermostat calls for heat.
Electrical Requirements

the range rating plate for the range’s
Manual shut-off valves will always be ordered total amp rating and wiring
from left to right in the following manner:
diagrams shown on pages 23-29.
1. Gas oven (left side on dual oven
models)
2. Griddle/Grill (if equipped)
3. Right gas oven (models 510 and 531,
right side door)
Electronic Ignition
Ranges and cooktops have top ignitor electrodes. When
a top burner knob is turned to the LITE position,
electrodes will spark at a rate of approximately 1½
pulses (sparks) per second. On sealed burner models, the
sparking will stop once the burner has ignited. On open
burner models, rotate the knob slightly clockwise to stop
sparking once lit.
In the event of a power failure you may need to light the
top burners with a match. Do so by holding a lit match
near the surface burner and turning the knob counterclockwise to the LITE position.
Spark Modules
The heart of an electronic spark system is the module
that is located either in the burner box, at the bottom of
the appliance, or behind the service access panel on
electric oven models. There is sufficient wiring to
withdraw the module assembly to check the connections,
make repairs or replacement. If sparking does not occur
when the top burner control is on, see page 32 for
troubleshooting tips.
Wiring Diagrams
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SERVICE THE
RANGE YOURSELF.
NOTE: THESE INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS SHOULD REMAIN
WITH THE UNIT FOR FUTURE
REFERENCE.
Wiring diagrams are located in this Use and Care manual
(pages 23 to 29). One is also located behind the control
panel near the griddle/grill knob or on the back of the
access panel beneath the electric oven, depending on the
model.
NOTE: Burner rates specified on the rating plate of the
range apply for elevations up to 2,000 feet above sea
level. For locations where altitudes are higher than 2,000
feet, the BTU rated input should be reduced four percent
for each 1,000 feet higher than 2,000 feet above sea
level. If this adjustment is necessary, contact a qualified
service technician.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Read all instructions before using this
appliance.
Many accidents occur in the home. Most of
these could be prevented with care and
judgment. Use this appliance only for its
intended use as described in this manual.
When using appliances, basic safety
precautions should be observed, including
the following:
Never allow children to play with the
range controls. The range and pans on it
can be hot. Do not allow anyone to
climb on the range or use it or the doors
for stepping, leaning, or sitting. Possible
hazards or injuries may result. It is
recommended that items not be stored
on, in, or above the range.
WARNING!!! All ranges can
tip and injury can result. To
prevent accidental tipping of the
range, attach it to the wall or floor.
See FIG. 2 on page 3.
Be sure your appliance is properly
installed and grounded by a qualified
technician in accordance with the
provided installation instructions.
Do not attempt to repair or replace any
part of your range yourself unless
specifically recommended in this manual.
All other servicing should be referred to a
qualified technician.
BEFORE PERFORMING ANY
SERVICE, DISCONNECT THE RANGE
POWER SUPPLY AT THE
HOUSEHOLD DISTRIBUTION PANEL
BY REMOVING THE FUSE OR
SWITCHING OFF THE CIRCUIT
BREAKER.
When preparing your meals a great deal
of heat is generated, and consequently
some parts of the range will become HOT.
Consider this in choosing the location for
your range. Do not leave children
unattended near the range when it is in use
or while the surfaces are still hot from use.
They should never be allowed to sit or stand
on any part of the appliance.
Never allow children to play in the
kitchen around the range.
CAUTION: ITEMS OF INTEREST
TO CHILDREN SHOULD NOT
BE STORED IN CABINETS
ABOVE THE RANGE. A range
hood that projects horizontally at least
5” beyond the bottom of the cabinets
is recommended.
Keep hood and grease filters clean
to maintain good venting and to
avoid grease fires.
WARNING!!!
Never use this appliance as a space
heater or to heat or warm the room.
Doing so may result in carbon monoxide
poisoning and overheating of the oven
and valve components.
Never wear loose-fitting or hanging
garments while using the appliance.
Flammable materials could be ignited if
brought in contact with hot surfaces
with open flames and may cause severe
burns.
Use only dry pot holders. Moist or
damp pot holders on hot surfaces may
result in burns from steam. Do not let
pot holders touch hot surfaces of the
range. Do not use a towel or other bulky
cloth as a pot holder.
10
Due to potential hazard do not use
the oven or broiler space for
storage. The top of the range should
never be used for storage either.
Flammable items can catch fire and
plastic items may ignite or melt.
Do not let cooking grease or other
flammable materials accumulate
in or near the range.
Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flaming pan on surface unit
by covering pan completely with
well-fitting lid, cookie sheet, or flat
tray. Flaming grease outside a pan
can be put out by covering with
baking soda or, if available, a multipurpose dry chemical or foam type
fire extinguisher.
EACH HOUSEHOLD
SHOULD HAVE AN
APPROPRIATE FIRE
EXTINGUISHER FOR USE IN
THE EVENT OF A HOUSE
FIRE.
DO NOT TOUCH BURNERS, BURNER
GRATES, OR INTERIOR SURFACE
OF OVEN.
These surfaces may be hot enough to burn
even though they appear to be cool. During
and immediately after use do not touch or let
clothing or other flammable materials
contact any hot surfaces or any interior area
of the oven. Allow sufficient time for
cooling.
Potentially hot surfaces include the cooking
surface and areas facing the cooking surface,
oven vent opening, and crevices around the
oven door.
Remember: The inside surface of the oven
door may be hot when the door is opened.
Oven
Do not bake in a gas oven or use a broiler
pan with excess grease buildup. Be careful
when handling the broiler pan, especially
when hot. Grease left in the pan can catch
fire if the oven is used without removing the
grease from the broiler pan. Keep oven free
from grease buildup.
Never use ammonia in an oven that is
warmer than room temperature and
always have direct ventilation.
Stand away from the range when opening
the oven door. Hot air or rising steam can
cause burns to hands, face, and/or eyes.
WARNING!!!
Never cover any slots, holes, or passages
in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack
with aluminum foil or other materials.
Doing so blocks air flow through the oven
and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
Aluminum foil linings may also trap heat,
causing a fire hazard.
When replacing an oven light bulb, be
sure the oven is cool. Disconnect power to
the range, and use a dry cloth to handle
the bulb.
Do not heat unopened food containers in
the oven. Pressure could build up and the
container could burst causing injury.
Place oven rack in desired position
while oven is cool. If rack must be
handled when hot, use a pot holder.
Pulling out the oven rack to the stop
position is a convenience in lifting
heavy goods. It is also a precaution
against burns from touching hot surfaces
of the door or oven walls.
Always turn utensil handles to the
side or back of the range to avoid
accidental bumping and to keep
out of reach of children.
When using cooking or roasting bags
in the oven, follow the manufacturer’s
directions.
Do not use your oven to dry
newspapers or any other flammable
materials.
Surface Cooking
Use proper pan size. Select utensils
with flat bottoms large enough to
cover the burner. The use of
undersized utensils in which flame
wraps the side of the utensil does not
heat the contents faster; it only scorches
the outside of the pot or pan, making
clean up more difficult. Adjust the top
burner knob to select a flame size to
cover just the bottom of the pan or pot.
Surface areas near burners may
become hot enough to cause burns.
During and immediately after use, do
not touch areas near burners until they
have had sufficient time to cool.
Never leave top burners on and
unattended. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers may catch on
fire.
Do not use aluminum foil to line
burner pans or inside oven except as
described in this manual. Misuse could
result in fire hazard or damage to the
range. Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic earthenware, or other
glazed containers are suitable for range
top use. Others may break because of
the sudden change in temperature.
Always refer to specific cookware
instructions.
An overhead ventilation hood that
directs air in a downward manner
toward the appliance is not to be
installed with a FiveStar. Ventilation
hoods that direct air toward a gas range
may cause ignition or combustion
problems with a gas cooking appliance
resulting in personal injury or
unintended operation.
Always turn surface burner to
OFF before removing cookware.
To avoid the possibility of a burn
always make certain that the
controls for all top burners are in
OFF position and all burner pans
are cool before attempting to
remove the grates, burner caps,
burner pans, or burners.
Do not put removable surface
burners in a dishwasher.
Be attentive to frying foods at all
temperatures.
Foods for frying should be as dry
as possible. Frost or ice on frozen
foods or moisture on fresh foods can
cause hot fat or oil to bubble over
sides of pan very quickly.
Use only enough fat or oil for
effective shallow or deep frying.
Filling the pan with excess fat can
cause spillovers when food is added.
If a combination of oils or fats will
be used in frying, stir together
before heating or as fats melt.
Always heat fat slowly and monitor
as it heats.
Use a deep fat thermometer
whenever possible to prevent
overheating fat or oil beyond the
smoking point.

make a clicking sound. This clicking is
the electrodes beneath the top of each
pair of burners. After lighting, turn the
knob clockwise to desired heat setting.
This turns off the electricity to the
electrodes.
If the knob is turned to LITE and no
clicking sound occurs, turn the knob off
and check the electrical connection,
fuse, or circuit breaker if necessary.
NEVER LEAVE THE KNOB IN
THE LITE POSITION AFTER THE
BURNER HAS BEEN LIT. Doing so
will shorten the life of the electronic
system.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO
SERVICE THE RANGE
YOURSELF.
NOTE: THESE INSTRUCTIONS
SHOULD REMAIN WITH THE
UNIT FOR FUTURE
REFERENCE.
TOP BURNERS
All top burners have electronic ignition.
Open burners have manual ignitors,
while sealed burners feature flame
sensing ignitors. When a top burner
knob is turned to the LITE position,
electrodes will spark at a rate of
approximately 1½ pulses (sparks) per
second. On sealed burner models, the
sparking will stop once the burner has
ignited. For open burner models, the
sparking will not stop until knob is
rotated clockwise off of the LITE
position.
In the event of a power failure, you
may light the top burners with a
match. Hold lit match near the surface
burner and turn the knob counterclockwise to the LITE position. Once
the burner is lit, operate normally.
Open Burners
To light the top open burners, push the
knob in and fully turn the knob counterclockwise to the LITE setting. When
the knob is set to LITE, the burner will
Sealed Burners
To light the top sealed burners, push the
knob in and turn counter-clockwise
slightly to the LITE position. A clicking
sound will begin when the knob is set
to LITE, but the sound will stop after
ignition. After lighting, continue
turning to desired setting.
Oven and Griddle Burners
These concealed burners use
automatic ignitors. The griddle and
oven control dials do not need to be
set to a LITE position to light the
burners. Simply turn the control dial
to the desired setting.
IF THE OVEN OR GRIDDLE
BURNER DOES NOT IGNITE
WITHIN 90 SECONDS OF TURNING
ON THE OVEN CONTROL DIAL,
TURN THE OVEN OR GRIDDLE
BACK OFF. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO
USE THE OVEN OR GRIDDLE.
CONTACT A QUALIFIED SERVICE
TECHNICIAN TO DETERMINE
THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM.
Before Using the Range or
Cooktop
New units are wiped clean with
solvents at the factory to remove any
traces of dirt and grease. Each range
and cooktop is then coated with a thin
film of mineral oil. Some stainless
steel parts may have a plastic
protective wrapper which must be
removed before using the range.
Before starting too cook the range
should be washed thoroughly with
hot, soapy water to remove film
residue and any dust or debris from
installation. Rinse and wipe dry.
If the range contains an oven or
ovens, remove and unwrap all loose
pieces from inside the oven(s) and/or
broiler area. If the unit contains a gas
oven, remove the included broiler pan
in lower broiler area. Remove and
discard the plastic and wash and dry
the pan thoroughly before replacing it
in broiler cavity. If the unit contains
an electric oven, remove the broiler
pan from inside the oven. Wash and
dry the piece and store it for later use.
If the unit contains an oven or ovens,
turn on each oven to 400°F for
approximately one hour. This burns
off the binder from the insulation and
prepares your oven(s) for normal use.
There may be a slight odor.
Once the unit is installed as outlined
in the Installation Instructions (pages
3-6), it is important that the air supply
to the unit remains open. The oven air
supply comes through the front floor
area under the range. The surface
burners get air from the area below
the control panel. See FIG. 2 on page
3. THESE AREAS MUST REMAIN
OPEN AND UNOBSTRUCTED.
Cooking Utensils
Most cooking utensils are suitable for
use on the FiveStar, and it is not
necessary to replace your present
domestic utensils with commercial
cookware. Cookware should be in
good condition and free of excessive
dents or bulging on the bottom to
provide maximum performance and
convenience.
Use of Oven
Preheat oven if necessary or desired.
While several variables affect preheat
time, the general recommendations
are:
Electric Oven:
12-15 minutes to 350°F.
Gas Oven:
8-10 minutes to reach 350°F.
Preheat time will vary.
Allow at least one inch space around
oven pans and the oven walls. Correct
pan placement allows air circulation
for proper baking and browning.
Do not place pans in the oven directly
over one another. Stagger the pans so
that air flow will not be inhibited. See
FIG. 15.
Always keep oven vent ducts unobstructed.
Oven Temperature
Selection
It is important to select a proper
temperature setting. Never set the
oven dial to a higher degree than
needed with the intention of lowering
the setting at a later time. This will
not speed up the action. Doing this
can actually cause the oven to cycle
more slowly, making the temperatures vary and cooking results to be
unsatisfactory. The oven will
maintain an even temperature if the
oven control dial is set directly from
OFF to the desired temperature.
Temperature ranges from 140°F to
200°F are for “low temp” warming.
These temperature settings are used
to keep food at serving temperature.
The temperature range from 250°F to
550°F is usually used for normal
baking. The general baking range is
from 350°F to 425°F.
Oven Racks
All convection ovens (gas and
electric) contain three oven racks,
while gas ovens without convection
contain two oven racks.
The oven racks should be arranged
before the oven knob is turned to the
ON position. Place the racks so the
food will be centered in the oven.
When more than one utensil is used,
be sure to stagger them allowing
space between each one (See FIG.
15). Do not allow the utensils to
touch any part of the oven, especially
the glass window. It is best to use
only two racks at a time and place
food so one utensil is not directly
over another.
Oven Rack Removal
First make sure oven and rack have
cooled sufficiently for handling. If
still warm or hot, use oven mitts.
FIG. 15
PAN POSITIONING–TOP RACK
(LEFT), BOTTOM RACK (RIGHT)
Pull the oven rack forward and lift up
on the front of the rack so it will clear
the rack keeper.
To replace the oven rack, guide the
angled rear portion of the rack under
the rack keeper and slide the rack to
the rear.
13
Gas Broiler Assembly
Baking
Each gas oven has a gas broiler below
the oven. A broil pan and grill are
held in place by a uniquely fashioned
broiler rack (See FIG. 16). To open
the broiler, gently lift up on the
broiler door handle and pull forward.
Use an oven mitt to grasp the broiler
pan and gently pull forward. It will
reach a temporary stop. Continue to
pull forward and the broiler rack will
pull out exposing the broiler pan
surface.
When baking, follow the recipe
instructions. Use correct ingredients,
measuring them carefully, and use the
correct type and size utensil
suggested in the recipe. Follow recipe
cooking times and temperatures,
using them as a guide only. Use
tested recipes from reliable sources.
FIG.16
GAS BROILER ASSEMBLY
The pan and grill may be removed
from the boiler rack by lifting up on
the front of the broiler pan so it will
clear the pan “keeper.” Then using
oven mitts to protect hands, pull
forward slightly to remove pan and
grill from the broiler rack. The broiler
rack may be removed in the same
manner as removing an oven rack. To
return the pan and grill to the broiler
rack, pull the broiler rack to the stop
position and insert the pan into the
recessed section of the broiler rack.
Make certain the pan “keeper” pins
clear the front edge of the broiler
rack. Slide the pan and grill in place
under the pan retainers. Push the pan
and rack back to position and close
the broiler door.
Aluminum Foil in Oven
and Broiler
Aluminum foil is a cause of many
range fires. Make certain that vents or
air openings are not covered by foil.
If the vents located along the sides of
the oven bottom are blocked, poor
cooking and burner performance will
result. Never cover a rack with
aluminum foil.
14
Arrange oven racks before turning on
the oven.
Allow about 1 to 1½” of space
between the oven side walls and
utensils for proper air circulation.
When baking foods in more than one
utensil, place them on opposite
corners of the oven rack. Stagger
utensils when baking on separate
racks so that one utensil does not
shield another (See FIG. 15 on page
13).
To conserve energy, avoid frequent or
prolonged door openings. At the end
of cooking, turn oven off before
removing food.
Always test for doneness (fingertip,
toothpick, etc). Do not rely on time or
brownness as sole indicators.
Remember to preheat as indicated.
Avoid frequent opening of the oven
during preheating and baking, as this
causes heat loss and varying
temperature.
When baking cakes in glass baking
dishes, lower the oven temperature 25
degrees to prevent uneven browning.
Also when using glass bakeware,
increase the preheat time to encourage exact stabilization of the
oven’s temperature. To do so, allow
20 minutes for temperatures up to
350°F and 30 minutes for
temperatures up to 425°F. Avoid
opening the oven door as much as
possible.
Use good quality baking utensils and
the size recommended in the recipe.
Dull, dark, enameled, or glass
utensils will generally produce a
brown, crisp crust. Shiny metal
utensils produce a light, golden crust.
Frozen pies in shiny aluminum pans
should be baked on a cookie sheet or
removed to a dull or glass pan prior
to baking.
Do not be concerned if condensation
occurs on the oven window. This is
normal and usually disappears after
the oven has operated for a short
time.
Convection Oven Models
Convection oven ranges offer the
choice of normal radiant baking and
roasting or convection baking and
roasting. The benefits of convection
cooking are:



More even baking and
roasting.
A general reduction in
cooking time for most baked
foods – up to 30% faster.
The opportunity to reduce
cooking temperature and stay
within original cooking time.
Operating the convection fan while
preheating the oven will not reduce
preheat time.
The convection control is located on
the control panel beside the control
knobs and may be switched on
anytime during the baking cycle, for
complete control.
CAUTION: DO NOT USE
ALUMINUM FOIL TO
LINE OVEN INTERIOR.
USE BOTH HANDS AND
OVEN MITTS WHEN
HANDLING OVEN
RACKS, BROILER PANS,
BROILER RACKS, AND
OVEN FLOORS.
Convection Cooking on Multiple Racks
For best results, bake foods on one
rack at a time as described in this
manual. However, very good results
can be obtained when baking on
multiple racks using the TurboFlow
convection feature.
The convection oven is suggested for
multiple rack cooking, especially
three rack cooking. For best results,
stagger baking utensils as shown in
FIG. 15 on page 13, and follow these
suggestions:

For two rack baking, leave one
rack position empty between rack
positions (in other words, use
positions #2 and #4 or #1 and
#3).
use of cookie sheets. Baking times
will be similar.

For three rack baking, use
positions #2, 3, and 4.

Bread pans and cookie sheets
should be placed lengthwise,
front to back, in front of the
convection fan for more even
browning.
Center food dishes in the oven. If
more than one food item is being
baked on multiple racks, stagger them
for proper air circulation.
Convection Baking of
Frozen Convenience Foods
Follow package recommendations for
oven temperature, foil covering, and
Most foods are baked on rack
position #3 (see FIG. 17).
For multiple rack baking, use racks
#2 and #4. However, frozen pizzas
should be placed on round pans or
pizza stones and baked on rack
positions #3 and #4 (see FIG. 17).

ENERGY-SAVING TIPS
Surface Cooking
Cook fresh vegetables with a
minimum amount of water in a
covered pan.
Monitor foods when bringing them to
cooking temperature quickly at high
heat. When food reaches cooking
temperature, reduce heat immediately
to lowest possible setting that will
still allow for sufficient cooking.
When boiling water heat only the
amount needed. It is not economical
to boil extra water.
Use correct heat setting for cooking
task:
HI: Use to start cooking if desired. If
time permits, use a lower heat to start.
MED: Use for quick browning.
LOW: Use to finish cooking most
quantities, double-boil, or to cook
small quantities normally.
SIM: Use to simmer and maintain
serving temperature of most foods.
Oven Cooking
Preheat oven if necessary or desired.
Preheat time will vary.
Always turn oven OFF before
removing food.
During baking, avoid opening the
oven door. If the door must be
opened, keep it open as briefly as
possible.
Cook complete oven meals instead of
just one food item. Potatoes, other
vegetables, and some desserts will
cook together with a main dish
casserole, meat loaf, chicken, or
roast. Choose foods that cook at the
same temperature and in
approximately the same amount of
time.
Use residual heat in the oven
whenever possible to finish cooking
dishes. Add rolls or precooked
desserts to a warm oven, using
residual heat to warm them.
15
Broiling
Broiling times vary depending on a
meat’s thickness, fat content, and
personal taste. Always be careful
when handling hot broiler pans. Use
both hands and oven mitts when
handling. Serious injury can result
due to spillage of hot grease.
Gas Broiling
Never leave a dirty broiler pan in
place. Always clean it and return it to
the broiler assembly. Unauthorized
broiler pan substitutes should never
be used. Excess fat should be
trimmed from meats to eliminate the
possibility of flame ups. The meat
could be ruined or fire could occur,
causing loss of property and potential
bodily injury.
Always broil with the oven door and
broiler door closed. When broiling is
completed, turn the dial to OFF, let
the broiler cool completely, and
remove the broiler pan temporarily
for cleaning.
NEVER USE THE GAS BROILER
AREA FOR STORAGE.
Electric Oven Broiling
The electric broil element is located
at the top of the electric oven cavity.
For best results, follow these
suggestions:
Place oven rack in position #4 (See
FIG. 17 on page 15)
Turn the oven dial counter-clockwise
to BROIL.
Place food on roasting/broiler pan
provided with the oven. After top
broil element begins to glow red,
place food in the oven.
16
Always broil with the oven door
closed. The oven thermostat will
maintain the temperature while food
broils.
The griddle/grill plate is pre-seasoned
and ready to use.
To reset the oven for baking, simply
turn the dial clockwise to desired
baking temperature. Broil element
will switch off and the bake element
will come on.
Preheat griddle at 450°F for 12-15
minutes. Once preheated, turn dial to
desired temperature.
Broiling Tips
Tender cuts of meat or marinated
meats are best for broiling. For best
results, steaks should be at least 1”
thick. Thinner steaks should be pan
broiled.
Do not cover broiler grill with foil
since this prevents fat drippings from
draining into the bottom of the pan.
To make cleaning easier, spray pan
and grill with non-stick spray.
Before broiling, remove excess fat
from meat and score edges of fat (do
not cut meat) to prevent meat from
curling. Salt after cooking if desired.
To prevent drying of fish or lean
meat, brush melted butter or oil over
surface before broiling.
Foods that require turning should be
turned only once during broiling.
Use recipe directions as a guide to
broil time.
Reversible Griddle/Grill
The griddle is equipped with a cast
iron plate that is reversible for use as
a grill. To flip the griddle to the grill
side or vice versa, simply lift up the
griddle by the front edge, flip over
the plate, and place it back in the
housing.
Griddle Cooking
Use liquid cooking oil, cooking
sprays, or butter for eggs, pancakes,
French toast, fish and sandwiches.
This will help to reduce sticking.
Remove food particles during
cooking to make the clean up easier
and to avoid including these particles
in the cooked food. Do not use sharp
objects to clean the griddle/grill, as
these can scratch the cast iron
surface.
Direct the flow of grease to the center
of the grease well.
Do not over-heat the griddle. Turn it
off when not in use, or lower heat
between cooking loads.

CLEANING THE RANGE OR COOKTOP
Make certain all parts of the range are
cool before cleaning. Be sure to
replace all parts correctly.
Knobs
Pull forward to remove the control
knobs. Wash with warm, soapy
water. Do not use abrasive or harsh
cleansers or scrub with abrasive
materials. Abrasive action will
scratch away the knob markings.
If the knobs become loose on the
valve stem, spread the valve stem
slightly with a small screwdriver.
Stainless Steel
All stainless steel body parts should
be wiped regularly with hot, soapy
water or a liquid cleaner designed
specifically for use with stainless
steel. Solutions stronger than soap
and water are rarely required. Never
use steel wool, abrasive cloths,
abrasive cleansers, or abrasive
powders on stainless steel parts. If it
is necessary to scrape stainless steel
to remove encrusted materials, soak
spot with hot damp cloths to loosen
the material. Then use a wooden or
nylon scraper to lift stuck-on
materials.
NEVER USE METAL KNIVES,
SPATULAS, OR OTHER SHARP
TOOLS TO SCRAPE STAINLESS
STEEL. SCRATCHES ARE
ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO
REMOVE.
Do not allow citrus or tomato juice to
remain on a stainless steel surface.
Wipe spills immediately. Citric acid
will permanently discolor stainless
steel.
Cooktop Area
Any cooktop spill-overs should be
wiped up as quickly as possible. Use
an oven mitt to protect hands from
heat when removing the grate or
grates.
Open Burners
To clean the cooktop area on your
open burner model, first let the
cooking surface cool. Remove all
burner grates, and lift the fronts of the
burner pans to remove them. Remove
the burner and let it soak in hot, sudsy
water. Most stains will then wipe off,
but if not, scrub with a strong, nonabrasive cleaning pad or nylon
scrubber. Rinse the burner
thoroughly.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT
THE BURNER BE DRAINED
AND DRIED BEFORE
REPLACING IT IN THE RANGE.
A wet burner will not allow the gas to
ignite properly. A buildup of gas
could result, potentially creating an
explosion or fire hazard.
If spills have seeped below the burner
pans, remove the porcelain drip trays
and either wash them in hot, soapy
water or place them in the
dishwasher. Dry thoroughly before
replacing beneath the burner. The
burner box bottom may be cleaned
with a damp cloth.
Do not put burner grates in a
dishwasher.
AVOID HARSH CLEANSERS
AROUND ALUMINUM PARTS
Do not use harsh cleaners or
degreasers on or around functional
parts (valves, controls, aluminum
tubing, etc). This will damage or
drastically reduce the life of the parts.
Open Burner Drip Pans
Below each open burner is an
individual porcelain-enameled burner
drip pan. To place or remove the
pans, remove the shipping screws
holding the burners in place (one
center screw per burner at the burner
support). These screws do not need to
be replaced and may be discarded.
Remove the burner to access the drip
pan. Be sure the burner is cool before
handling. These individual burner
drip pans are dishwasher safe for easy
cleaning.
Sealed Burners
To clean the cooktop area on your
sealed burner model, first let the
cooking surface cool. Remove all
burner grates. With a damp, soapy rag
or sponge, wipe the cooktop area
around each burner to remove stuckon materials. Remove any food or dirt
particles from the cooktop area.
Remove burner caps for easier
cleaning. Burner caps must be
correctly reseated for proper ignition
and burner performance.
Do not put burner caps or grates in a
dishwasher.
A light coat of baby oil may be
applied periodically to the stainless
steel surfaces. This will help prevent
moisture from penetrating the
stainless surfaces.
FIG. 18
SEALED BURNER BASE AND CAP

Cleaning Cast Iron Grates
Lift-Off Doors
The cast iron burner grates may be removed and cleaned
with soap and hot water. Do not put grates in a dishwasher.
All models are equipped with lift-off oven doors to aid in
cleaning (See FIG. 19 on page 19).
Griddle/Grill
Before cooking on the reversible cast iron griddle/grill, rinse
with hot water. DO NOT USE SOAP. Dry thoroughly with a
clean rag. Prepare the surface with cooking spray or oil
before preheating.
Gas Oven Bottom Removal
First remove racks from the oven. The oven bottom lifts up
from the rear. To lift and remove, grasp each side of the
oven bottom and lift upward from the rear until the bottom is
clear. Lift to remove it from the front (See FIG. 20). Electric
oven bottoms are not removable.
After cooking, clean griddle with a stiff brush and hot water.
DO NOT USE SOAP OR HARSH DETERGENTS ON
CAST IRON SURFACE. NEVER PUT CAST IRON IN
A DISHWASHER. Towel dry immediately and apply a
light coat of cooking spray or oil while griddle is still warm.
Store griddle/grill in a cool, dry place. When using the
stainless steel cover over the griddle, place a folded paper
towel between the cover and the griddle to allow air to
circulate.
CLEANING THE OVEN
Moisture
During initial heating of the oven, the heat mixing with the
cooler air in the oven cavity may produce fogging of the
door glass or a collection of water on the door. To prevent
this, open the oven door for the first few seconds of the
initial oven heating. This will allow the moist air within the
oven to escape without forming visible moisture on the
range. The amount of moisture will depend upon the
humidity of the air and water content of the food being
cooked. Fogging and even dripping water is common in
geographic locations of high humidity.

may require cleaning with a mild abrasive
cleaner. Do not allow food spills with
high sugar or acid content (milk,
tomatoes, pie filling, etc) to remain on the
surface. They may cause discoloration
even after cleaning.
YOU MAY USE OVEN CLEANER IN
GAS OVENS ONLY. Be sure to follow
package directions.
Outside of door
Use soap and water to thoroughly clean
the top, sides, and front of the oven.
Rinse well.

HARSH ABRASIVES ON THE
OUTSIDE OF THE OVEN DOOR.
19
CLEANING THE ELECTRIC OVEN
Each FiveStar electric oven contains
a self-clean cycle. These self-cleaning
electric ovens clean with very high
temperatures (well above cooking
temperatures) which reduce soils to a
fine powdered ash for easy clean up
with a damp cloth.
WARNING – During the selfcleaning cycle, the exterior of the
range can become very hot to the
touch. DO NOT leave small
children unattended near the
appliance while in self-clean.
heavy smoke or fire when subjected
to high temperatures. DO NOT allow
food spills with high acid or sugar
content to remain on the surface.
These may cause dull spots even after
cleaning.
Clean any soil from the oven frame,
the door liner outside the oven seal,
and the small area at the front center
of the oven bottom. These areas do
not become hot enough to burn soil
off. Clean with soap and water only.
CAUTION – DO NOT line the
oven with aluminum foil. This
practice will destroy heat
distribution during cleaning and
cause the aluminum foil to melt to
the oven finish creating permanent
damage to the appliance.
DO NOT use commercial oven
cleaners or protective coatings in or
around any part of the self-cleaning
oven.
DO NOT clean the oven door seal.
The woven gasket is essential for a
good seal. Care should be taken not
to rub, damage, or remove the seal.
FIG. 22
SELF-CLEAN OVEN INTERIOR
Starting the Self-Clean

The complete self-cleaning cycle
from door lock to unlock takes
approximately 3 hours and 45
minutes.
NOTE: During this cycle the
convection fan and the griddle burner
are inoperative.
A remote timer controls the cleaning
cycle and it is automatically reset
when the door is unlocked at the end
of the cleaning cycle.
Indicator Lights

Remove all utensils from inside the
oven. These items cannot withstand
cleaning temperatures.
Release the LOCK switch. The
oven is now cleaning.
If the cleaning cycle is interrupted for
any reason, wait three hours before

timer to reset.
Preparing Oven for SelfCleaning
Wear rubber gloves when precleaning and when wiping up after
the self-clean cycle.

The oven indicator light is on
anytime the oven control is in the ON
position. It will cycle at knob setting
or at the clean temperature,
approximately 875°F. The DOOR

element on its way to the vent. After
approximately 30 minutes, the system
will switch from broil to bake, and
the temperature will rise to 875°F,
cycling off and on for an additional 2
hours and 30 minutes. The system
will then turn the oven off, and the
oven signal light will go off. The
oven will then begin to cool.
After approximately 45 minutes, the
DOOR LOCKED indicator light will
go off, indicating that the oven
temperature has dropped to
approximately 400°F, and the door

FIVESTAR ACCESSORIES
Included Accessories
Wok Ring
Stainless Steel Griddle Cover
All Sealed burner model ranges and cooktops are equipped
with a cast iron wok ring. To use, position the wok ring so
that it sits on the fingers of the burner grate. The ring will
accommodate round bottom woks up to 14” in diameter. A
wok is not included.
Ranges and cooktops equipped with the cast iron reversible
griddle/grill feature include a stainless steel griddle cover to
protect the griddle/grill when not in use. This piece may also
act as a work surface when in place. Do not place the cover
atop the griddle/grill plate until it is completely cool. Never
place the griddle cover over a hot griddle.
Optional Accessories
These accessories pieces may be purchased from a local authorized FiveStar dealer. To find a dealer near you, visit
www.fivestarrange.com.
Portable FiveStar Griddle
For Use with Open Burners Only
Model Number FSG010
The Portable FiveStar Griddle is
available from all FiveStar authorized
dealers. The piece is designed to sit
atop two open burners.
To use, remove burner grates from
two burners, front and back. Place
griddle over front burner pan locator.
For best results, both burners should
be on at desired setting.
CAUTION: ALWAYS REMOVE
TOP BURNER GRATES TO
AVOID DAMAGE WHILE
USING GRIDDLE.
Griddle Cooking



30
Preheat the griddle at selected
burner setting for approximately
10 minutes.
Use liquid cooking oil, cooking
sprays, or butter for eggs,
pancakes, French toast, fish, and
sandwiches. This will help reduce
sticking. Meats usually have
plenty of natural oils.
Remove food particles with a
metal spatula during cooking to
make clean up easier and to avoid
including those particles in the
cooked food. Be sure to keep the
spatula flat. The corners can
scratch. Direct the flow of grease
to the center of the grease well.
Do not over-heat the griddle. Turn
it off when not in use, or lower heat
between cooking loads.

Griddle Clean Up
Cooked-off grease will drain from the
griddle toward the front of the range
and accumulate in the grease well.
Direct the flow of grease to the center
of the grease well with a spatula.
After using the griddle, always pour
or spoon off grease from the grease
well. Use a dry cloth to wipe up any
accumulation. The grease well needs
to be cleaned after each use. If grease
is permitted to accumulate, a fire
hazard could occur.
Rub the surface of a warm griddle
with unsalted solid shortening or oil.
Wipe it with burlap or other rough
cloth to remove residue. Stubborn
spots may be removed by rubbing the
surface with a rough-grained nylon
scrubbing pad soaked with cooking
oil.
WARNING!!! ALWAYS
ALLOW GRIDDLE TO COOL
PRIOR TO CLEAN UP OR
REMOVAL FOR STORAGE.
If cooked in food spots cannot be
removed with a scrubbing pad, use a
pumice grill stone. To use, pour a
liberal amount of cooking oil on a
warm (not hot) griddle. Sprinkle
griddle with generous amount of table
or coarse salt. Scour in one direction
only until all carbon and food are
removed. Do not over-scour as this
removes the cure and can cause
sticking. Wipe clean with a dry cloth.
Do not use hot, soapy water to clean
the griddle. This will remove the
cooked-in seasoning of the griddle.
Never flood a hot griddle with cold
water. This can cause griddle plate
warping or cracking.

should fail to operate, first
check the following:



Is the electrical cord securely
inserted into the electrical outlet?

a fuse blown?
Is there gas being supplied to the
range?
If Service is Required
Call the dealer or authorized FiveStar
service agency. The name of an
authorized service provider may be
obtained from the dealer or distributor in your area.

Moisture and Electronic Ignition
The sealed surface burners have a
flame sensing feature that
automatically stops the sparking once
the burner has ignited. Turning the
control dial ON will activate an
electronic module and send pulses
(sparks) to all electrodes at a rate of
approximately 1½ pulses (sparks) per
second.
Moisture can adversely affect the
operation of the top burner ignitor
electrodes. Upon initial use of the
range or after extended periods of
non-use in areas with high humidity,
collection of moisture may build up
on in the ceramic sleeve of the flame
sensing electrode. This could cause
delayed burner ignition or may
hamper the flame sensing feature.
This moisture may be driven out of
the electrode by manually lighting the
burner and operating it for a few
32
minutes. Follow the instructions
below for manually lighting a burner.
NEVER LEAVE THE CONTROL
KNOBS IN ANY POSITION
OTHER THAN “OFF” IF THE
IGNITORS OR BURNERS ARE
NOT WORKING PROPERLY.



With the burner control OFF,
position yourself so you can see
the ignitor electrode.
Briefly turn the top burner knob
to the LITE position while
watching the ignitor electrode.
You should hear the ignition
module start pulsing, and you
should see simultaneous sparks
jump from the ignitor electrode to
the burner base.
If the burner fails to light within
10 seconds or no sparks are





observed, turn the control knob
back to the OFF position.
Next manually light the burner by
holding a lit match near the
burner while turning the control
knob to the LITE position.
Once lit, rotate the burner knob to
the HI setting.
Let the burner operate for five
minutes on HI.
To determine if moisture was the
problem, turn the burner off for a
few minutes. Then check if the
burner can relight properly under
normal operation.
If the burner ignitors continue to
fail to light and operate the flame
sensing feature properly, contact
a qualified service technician.
