RANGESAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety
messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word "DANGER" or "WARNING."
These words mean:
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow
instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.
The range will not tip during normal use. However, the range can tip if you apply too much force or weight to the open door without
having the anti-tip bracket fastened down properly.
Tip Over Hazard
A child or adult can tip the range and be killed.
Connect anti-tip bracket to rear range foot.
Reconnect the anti-tip bracket, if the range is moved.
See the installation instructions for details.
Failure to follow these instructions
Anti-Tip Bracket
can result in death or serious burns to children and adults.
Making sure the anti-tip bracket is installed:
• Slide range forward.
• Look for the anti-tip bracket securely attached to floor.
• Slide range back so rear range foot is under anti-tip bracket.

iMPORTANT SAFETY iNSTRUCTiONS
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
injury to persons, or damage when using the range, follow
basic precautions, including the following:
[] WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF
THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED BY
PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP DEVICES. TO CHECK
IF THE DEVICES ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE
RANGE FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET
SECURELY ATTACHED TO FLOOR, AND SLIDE RANGE
BACK SO REAR RANGE FOOT IS UNDER ANTI-TIP
BRACKET.
[] CAUTION:
Do not store items of interest to children in
cabinets above a range or on the backguard of a range children climbing on the range to reach items could be
seriously injured.
[] Proper Installation - Be sure the range is properly installed
and grounded by a qualified technician.
[] Never Use the Range for Warming or Heating the Room.
[] Do Not Leave Children Alone - Children should not be left
alone or unattended in area where the range is in use.
They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of
the range.
[] Wear Proper Apparel - Loose-fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn while using the range.
[] User Servicing - Do not repair or replace any part of the
range unless specifically recommended in the manual. All
other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
[] Storage in or on the Range - Flammable materials should
not be stored in an oven or near surface units.
[] Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires - Smother fire or flame
or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
[] Use Only Dry Potholders - Moist or damp potholders on
hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let
potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel
or other bulky cloth.
[] DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR
UNITS - Surface units may be hot even though they are
dark in color. Areas near surface units may become hot
enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch,
or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface
units or areas near units until they have had sufficient time
to cool. Among those areas are the cooktop and surfaces
facing the cooktop.
[] Protective Liners - Do not use aluminum foil to line surface
unit drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as suggested in
the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result
in a 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 range-top service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature.
[] Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend
Over Adjacent Surface Units - To reduce the risk of burns,
ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to
unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a
utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and
does not extend over adjacent surface units.
[] Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements - Heating
elements should never be immersed in water.
[] Do Not 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.
[] Clean Cooktop With Caution - If a wet sponge or cloth is
used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to
avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
[] Use Care When Opening Door - Let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
[] Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers - Build-up of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.
[] Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.
[] Placement of Oven Racks - Always place oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved
while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating
element in oven.
[] DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR
SURFACES OF OVEN - Heating elements may be hot even
though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of an oven
become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use,
do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials
contact heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until
they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the
appliance may become hot enough to cause burns - among
these surfaces are oven vent openings and surfaces near
these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors.
[] Use Proper Pan Size - The range is equipped with one or
more surface units of different size. Select utensils having
flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating
element. The use of undersized utensils will expose a
portion of the heating element to direct contact and may
result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to
burner will also improve efficiency.
For self-cleaning
[] Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat
Settings - Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite.
[] Clean Only Parts Listed in Manual.
[] Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place Absence of these pans or bowls during cooking may
subject wiring or components underneath to damage.
ranges -
[] 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.
[] Do Not Use Oven Cleaners - No commercial oven cleaner
or oven liner protective coating of any kind should be used
in or around any part of the oven.
[] Before Self-Cleaning the Oven - Remove broiler pan and
other utensils.
For units with ventilating hood [] Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently - Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.
[] When flambeing foods under the hood, turn the fan on.

COOKTOPUSE
Coil elements should be level for optimal cooking results. Burner
bowls, when clean, reflect heat back to the cookware. They also
help catch spills.
Cookware should not extend more than 1/2"(1.3 cm) over the coil
element. If cookware is uneven or too large, it can produce
excess heat, causing the burner bowl to change color. For more
information, see the "General Cleaning" section.
NOTE: Before removing or replacing coil elements and burner
bowls, make sure they are cool and the control knobs are in the
Off position.
Fire Hazard
Turn off all controls when done cooking.
Failure to do so can result in death or fire.
To Remove:
1.
Push in the edge of coil element toward the receptacle. Then
lift it enough to clear the burner bowl.
2.
Pull the coil element straight away from the receptacle.
3.
Lift out the burner bowl.
The control knobs can be set to anywhere between HI and LO.
Push in and turn to setting. On some models, the surface cooking
area Iocator shows which element is turned on. Use the following
chart as a guide when setting heat levels.

section.
To Lift:
Lift the cooktop by both front corners until the supports lock into
place.
IMPORTANT: Do not leave empty cookware on a hot surface
cooking area, element or surface burner.
Ideal cookware should have a flat bottom, straight sides and a
well-fitting lid, and the material should be of medium-to-heavy
thickness.
Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop or grates. Aluminum and
copper may be used as a core or base in cookware. However,
when used as a base they can leave permanent marks on the
cooktop or grates.
Cookware material is a factor in how quickly and evenly heat is
transferred, which affects cooking results. A nonstick finish has
the same characteristics as its base material. For example,
aluminum cookware with a nonstick finish will take on the
properties of aluminum.
Cookware with nonstick surfaces should not be used under the
broiler.
To Replace:
1. Lift the cooktop from both sides while pressing the support
rods back to unlock them.
2.
Slowly lower the cooktop into place.
When canning for long periods, alternate the use of elements
between batches. This allows time for the most recently used
areas to cool.
•
Center the canner on the element. Canners should not extend
more than 1/2"(1.3 cm) beyond the element.
•
Do not place canner on 2 elements at the same time.
•
For more information, contact your local agricultural
department. Companies that manufacture home canning
products can also offer assistance.
Use the following chart as a guide for cookware material

OVENUSE
Odors and smoke are normal when the oven is used the first few
times, or when it is heavily soiled.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to
the fumes given off. Exposure to the fumes may result in death to
certain birds. Always move birds to another closed and wellventilated room.
IMPORTANT: Do not use a thermometer to measure oven
temperature because opening the oven door and element or
burner cycling may give incorrect readings.
The oven provides accurate temperatures;
faster or slower than your previous oven.
however, it may cook
IMPORTANT: Do not line the oven bottom with any type of foil,
liners or cookware because permanent damage will occur to the
oven bottom finish.
•
Do not cover entire rack with foil because air must be able to
move freely for best cooking results.
•
To catch spills, place foil on rack below dish. Make sure foil is
at least 1/2" (1.3 cm) larger than the dish and that it is turned
up at the edges.
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the porcelain
finish, do not place food or bakeware directly on the oven door or
bottom.
BAKEWARE
Hot air must be able to circulate around food to cook evenly, so
allow 2" (5 cm) of space around bakeware and oven walls. Use
the following chart as a guide.

Broiling uses direct radiant heat to cook food. Changing the
temperature when broiling allows more precise control. The lower
the temperature, the slower the cooking. Thicker cuts and
unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish and poultry may cook
better at lower broiling temperatures.
•
If you would like to purchase a broiler pan, one may be
ordered. See "Assistance or Service" section to order. Ask for
Part Number 4396923.
•
For proper draining, do not cover the grid with foil. The
bottom of the pan may be lined with aluminum foil for easier
cleaning.
•
Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit the remaining fat on
the edges to avoid curling.
•
Pull out oven rack to stop position before turning or removing
food. Use tongs to turn food to avoid the loss of juices. Very
thin cuts of fish, poultry or meat may not need to be turned.
•
After broiling, remove the pan from the oven when removing
the food. Drippings will bake on the pan if left in the heated
oven, making cleaning more difficult.

items that could melt or burn
For best results, use a broiler pan and grid (provided on some
models). They are designed to drain juices and help avoid
spatter and smoke.
Before broiling, position rack according to the Broiling Chart. It is
not necessary to preheat the oven before putting food in unless
recommended in the recipe. Position food on grid in the broiler
pan, then place it in the center of the oven rack. Close the door to
the broil stop position to ensure proper broiling temperature.
The element can be used when the oven is in use as long as the
cookware does not extend more than 1/2"(1.3 cm) over the
element.
Before baking and roasting, position the racks according to the
"Positioning Racks and Bakeware" section. When roasting, it is
not necessary to wait for the oven to preheat before putting food
in, unless recommended in the recipe.
To Bake or Roast:
1. Push in and turn the oven control knob to the desired
temperature setting. The OVEN HEATING light will turn on
and remain on until the oven reaches the set temperature.
2. Place food in oven. The bake element will turn on and off to
maintain cooking temperature. The OVEN HEATING light will
turn on and off with the element.
3.
Turn oven control knob to OFF when finished.
To Broil:
1. Push in and turn oven control knob to BROIL HI or turn to
BROIL LO to broil at a lower temperature.
