Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
■
CAUTION:
Items of interest to
children should not be stored in cabinets
above a range or on the backsplash of a
range—children climbing on the range to
reach items could be seriously injured.
Care and Cleaning
■ Never wear loose-fitting or hanging
garments while using the appliance. Be
careful when reaching for items stored over
the range. Flammable material could be
ignited if brought in contact with hot
surface units or heating elements 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 surface units or heating elements.
Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth in
place of pot holders.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ Do not use water on grease fires. Never
pick up a flaming pan. Turn the controls
off. Smother a flaming pan on a surface
unit by covering the pan completely with a
well-fitting lid, cookie sheet or flat tray. Use
a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type
fire extinguisher.
■ Flaming grease outside a pan can be put
out by covering it with baking soda or, if
available, by using a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
Consumer Support
■ Flame in the oven can be smothered
completely by closing the oven door and
turning the oven off or by using a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type fire
extinguisher.
■ For your safety, never use your appliance
for warming or heating the room.
■ Do not let cooking grease or other
flammable materials accumulate in or
near the range.
■ Do not touch the surface units, the heating
elements or the interior surface of the
oven. These surfaces may be hot enough to
burn even though they are dark in color.
During and after use, do not touch, or let
clothing or other flammable materials
contact the surface units, areas nearby the
surface units or any interior area of the
oven; allow sufficient time for cooling first.
■ Potentially hot surfaces include the
cooktop, areas facing the cooktop, oven
vent opening, surfaces near the opening,
crevices around the oven door.
■ REMEMBER: The inside surface of the oven
may be hot when the door is opened.
■ Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
■ Keep the hood and grease filters clean
to maintain good venting and to avoid
grease fires.
■ Teach children not to play with the
controls or any other part of the range.
■ Always keep dish towels, dish cloths, pot
holders and other linens a safe distance
from your range.
■ Always keep wooden and plastic utensils
and canned food a safe distance from
your range.
■ Always keep combustible wall coverings,
curtains or drapes a safe distance from
your range.
COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY…
4
Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meat to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 160°F. and poultry
to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 180°F. Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against
foodborne illness.
SURFACE UNITS
Use proper pan size—select cookware having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit
heating element. The use of undersized cookware will expose a portion of the surface unit to direct
contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of cookware to surface unit will
also improve efficiency.
■ Only certain types of glass, glass ⁄ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed containers are
suitable for cooktop service; others may
break because of the sudden change in
temperature.
■ Always turn the surface units off before
removing cookware.
■ When preparing flaming foods under the
hood, turn the fan on.
■ Use care when touching the cooktop. The
glass surface of the cooktop will retain heat
after the controls have been turned off.
■ Foods for frying should be as dry as
possible. Frost on frozen foods or moisture
on fresh foods can cause hot fat to bubble
up and over the sides of the pan.
■ Use little fat for effective shallow or deep
fat frying. Filling the pan too full of 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 slowly.
■ Use a deep fat thermometer whenever
possible to prevent overheating fat beyond
the smoking point.
■ Avoid scratching the glass cooktop. The
cooktop can be scratched with items such
as sharp instruments, rings or other
jewelry, and rivets on clothing.
■ Be careful when placing spoons or other
stirring utensils on glass cooktop surface
when it is in use. They may become hot and
could cause burns.
■ Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet
sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a
hot surface unit, be careful to avoid steam
burns. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
NOTE: We recommend that you avoid
wiping any surface unit areas until they
have cooled and the indicator light has
gone off. Sugar spills are the exception to
this. Please see the Cleaning the glass
cooktop section.
■ When the cooktop is cool, use only the
recommended cleaning cream to clean
the cooktop.
■ To avoid possible damage to the cooking
surface, do not apply cleaning cream to
the glass surface when it is hot.
■ After cleaning, use a dry cloth or paper
towel to remove all cleaning cream residue.
■ Read and follow all instructions and
warnings on the cleaning cream labels.
5
Consumer Support
■ Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
■ Do not place or store items that can melt or
catch fire on the glass cooktop, even when
it is not being used.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ Keep an eye on foods being fried at high or
medium high heat settings.
■ Never use the glass cooktop surface as a
cutting board.
Care and Cleaning
■ To minimize the possibility of burns,
ignition of flammable materials and
spillage, the handle of a container should
be turned toward the center of the range
without extending over nearby surface units.
■ Do not operate the radiant surface units if
the glass is broken. Spillovers or cleaning
solution may penetrate a broken cooktop
and create a risk of electrical shock.
Contact a qualified technician immediately
should your glass cooktop become broken.
Operating Instructions
■ Never leave the surface units unattended at
high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
Safety Instructions
www.GEAppliances.com
WARNING!
OVEN
Stand away from the range when opening the oven door. Hot air or steam which escapes can cause
burns to hands, face and/or eyes.
■ Do not heat unopened food containers.
Pressure could build up and the container
could burst, causing an injury.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
■ Keep the oven vent unobstructed.
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
■ Place the oven shelf in the desired position
while the oven is cool. If shelves must be
handled when hot, do not let pot holder
contact the heating elements.
■ When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
Care and Cleaning
■ Pulling out the shelf to the stop-lock is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also
a precaution against burns from touching
hot surfaces of the door or oven walls.
■ Do not use the oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch on fire.
■ Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in an oven can ignite.
■ Do not leave paper products, cooking
utensils or food in the oven when not
in use.
■ Do not use aluminum foil to line oven
bottoms, except as suggested in this
manual. Improper installation of
aluminum foil may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire.
SELF-CLEANING OVEN
Troubleshooting Tips
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. Residue from oven cleaners will damage the inside
of the oven when the self-clean cycle is used.
■ Do not clean the door gasket. The door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage or
move the gasket.
■ If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions,
turn the oven off and disconnect the
power supply. Have it serviced by a
qualified technician.
■ Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the
broiler pan, grid and other cookware.
■ Clean only parts listed in this Owner’s
Manual.

The radiant cooktop features heating
units beneath a smooth glass surface.
NOTE: A slight odor is normal when a new
cooktop is used for the first time. It is caused by
the heating of new parts and insulating materials
and will disappear in a short time.
NOTE: On some models with a white glass
cooktop, it is normal for the surface to appear
discolored when it is hot. This is temporary and
will disappear as the glass cools.
■ Water stains (mineral deposits) are removable
using the cleaning cream or full strength white
vinegar.
■ Use of window cleaner may leave an
iridescent film on the cooktop. The cleaning
cream will remove this discoloration.
■ Don’t store heavy items above the cooktop. If
they drop onto the cooktop, they can cause
damage.
■ Do not use the surface as a cutting board.
The surface unit will cycle on and off to

To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the desired position before you turn the oven on.
Before you begin…
The shelves have stops, so that when
placed correctly on the supports, they will
stop before coming completely out, and
will not tilt.
When placing and removing cookware,
pull the shelf out until it stops.
On some models, the bake heating
element is under the oven floor.
Do not place foods on the oven bottom

Consumer Support
To remove a shelf, pull it toward you, tilt
the front end up and pull it out.
To replace, place the end of the shelf
(stop-locks) on the support, tilt up the
front and push the shelf in.
CAUTION: When you are using the shelf in the
lowest position (A), you will need to use caution
when pulling the shelf out. We recommend that
you pull the shelf out several inches and then,
using two pot holders, pull the shelf out by
holding the sides of it. The shelf is low and you
could be burned if you place your hand in the
middle of the shelf and pull all the way out. Be
very careful not to burn your hand on the door
when using the shelf in the lowest position (A).

Preheating and Pan Placement
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it.
Preheating is necessary for good results
when baking cakes, cookies, pastry and
breads.
Do not place foods directly on the
oven floor.
To preheat, set the oven at the correct temperature.
The control will beep when the oven is preheated
and the display will show your set temperature.
This will take approximately 15–20 minutes.
Baking results will be better if baking pans
are centered in the oven as much as
possible. If baking with more than one
pan, place the pans so each has at least 1″
to 11⁄2″ of air space around it. If baking
four cake layers at the same time, place
two layers on rack B and two layers on
rack D. Stagger pans on the rack so one is
not directly above the other.
Aluminum Foil
You can use aluminum foil to line the
broiler pan and broiler grid. However,
you must mold the foil tightly to the grid
and cut slits in it just like the grid.
Cut slits in the foil just like the grid.
14
Without the slits, the foil will prevent fat
and meat juices from draining into the
broiler pan. The juices could become
hot enough to catch on fire. If you
do not cut the slits, you are essentially
frying, not broiling.
Do not use aluminum foil on the bottom of
the oven.
Never entirely cover a shelf with
aluminum foil. This will disturb the heat
circulation and result in poor baking.
A smaller sheet of foil may be used to
catch a spillover by placing it on a lower
shelf several inches below the food.

For many foods, especially roasts and poultry, internal food temperature is the best test for doneness. The
temperature probe takes the guesswork out of roasting by cooking foods to the exact doneness you want.
Use of probes other than the one
provided with this product may result in
damage to the probe.
Use the handles of the probe and plug
when inserting and removing them from
the food and outlet.
The temperature probe has a
skewer-like probe at one end and a
plug at the other end that goes into
the outlet in the oven.

■ To avoid breaking the probe, make sure food is
completely defrosted before inserting.
■ Do not store the probe in the oven.
■ To prevent possible burns, do not unplug the
probe from the outlet until the oven has
cooled.
After preparing the meat and placing it
on a trivet or on the broiler pan grid,
follow these directions for proper probe
placement.
For roasts with no bone, insert the probe
into the meatiest part of the roast. For
bone-in ham or lamb, insert the probe
into the center of the lowest large muscle.
Insert the probe completely into the
meat. It should not touch the bone,

The convection oven fan shuts off when the oven door is opened. DO NOT leave the door open for long periods of
time while using convection cooking or you may shorten the life of the convection heating element.
To help you understand the difference
between convection bake and roast and
traditional bake and roast, here are some
general guidelines.
Convection Bake
Roasting rack
Post
■ Good for large quantities of baked foods.
Grid
■ Good results with cookies, biscuits, brownies,
cupcakes, cream puffs, sweet rolls, angel food
cake and bread.
Heat comes from the heating element in
the rear of the oven. The convection fan
circulates the heated air evenly over and
around the food. Preheating is not
necessary with foods having a bake time
of over 15 minutes.
■ Good for large tender cuts of meat, uncovered.
■ Place the shelf in the lowest shelf
position (A).
■ Place the grid on the broiler pan and
put the roasting rack over them making
sure the posts on the roasting rack fit
into the holes in the broiler pan.
Roasts or poultry should be cooked on the lowest
shelf position (A) on a shelf.
Adapting Recipes…
■ For more information on adapting recipes, see
the Convection Cookbook.
When baking, reduce baking
temperature by 25°F.
■ Use pan size recommended.
No need to preheat when cooking
longer than 15 minutes.
■ Some package instructions for frozen
casseroles or main dishes have been
developed using commercial convection ovens.
For best results in this oven, preheat the oven
and use the temperature on the package.

Consumer Support
You can use your favorite recipes in the

Troubleshooting Tips
Heat comes from the top heating
element. The convection fan circulates
the heated air evenly over and around the
food. Meat and poultry are browned on
all sides as if they were cooked on a
rotisserie. Using the roasting rack
provided, heated air will be circulated
over, under and around the food being
roasted. The heated air seals in juices
quickly for a moist and tender product
while, at the same time, creating a rich
golden brown exterior.
When you are convection roasting it is
important that you use the broiler pan
and grid and the special roasting rack for
best convection roasting results. The pan
is used to catch grease spills and the grid
is used to prevent grease spatters. Place
the meat on the special roasting rack. The
rack holds the meat. The rack allows the
heated air to circulate under the meat
and increase browning on the underside
of the meat or poultry.
Care and Cleaning
Convection Roast
Broiler pan
Operating Instructions
■ Ideal for evenly browned baked foods cooked
on multiple shelves.
In a convection oven, a fan
circulates hot air over, under and
around the food. This circulating
hot air is evenly distributed
throughout the oven cavity. As a
result, foods are evenly cooked and
browned—often in less time than
with regular heat.
Safety Instructions
Using the convection oven.
Cookware for Convection Cooking
Before using your convection oven, check
to see if your cookware leaves room for air
circulation in the oven. If you are baking
with several pans, leave space between
them. Also, be sure the pans do not touch
each other or the walls of the oven.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
Using the convection oven.
Paper and Plastic
Heat-resistant paper and plastic
containers that are recommended
for use in regular ovens can be used in
convection ovens. Plastic cookware that
is heat-resistant to temperatures of
400°F. can also be used, when oven is
below 400°F.
Any type of cookware will work in your
convection oven. However, metal pans
heat the fastest and are recommended
for convection baking.
■ Darkened or matte-finished pans will bake
faster than shiny pans.
■ Glass or ceramic pans cook more slowly.
When baking cookies, you will get the
best results if you use a flat cookie sheet
instead of a pan with low sides.
For recipes like oven-baked chicken,
use a pan with low sides. Hot air cannot
circulate well around food in a pan with
high sides.

Multi-Shelf Baking
Because heated air is circulated evenly
throughout the oven, foods can be
baked with excellent results using
multiple shelves.
When convection baking with only
1 shelf, follow the shelf positions
recommended in the Using the
oven section.

Multi-shelf baking may increase cook
times slightly for some foods but the
overall result is time saved. Cookies,
muffins, biscuits, and other quick
breads give very good results with
multi-shelf baking.
When baking on 3 shelves, place one
shelf in the bottom (A) position, one on
the 4th (D) position and the offset shelf
in the 6th (F) position.

You may find that your new oven cooks differently than the one it replaced. Use your new oven for a few
weeks to become more familiar with it. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust
the thermostat yourself.
Do not use thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores, to check the temperature setting of your oven.
These thermometers may vary 20–40 degrees.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling or the self-cleaning temperatures. The adjustment will be retained
in memory after a power failure.
To Adjust the Thermostat
Touch the BAKE and BROIL HI/LO
pads at the same time for 3 seconds
until the display shows SF.
Touch the BAKE pad. A two digit
number shows in the display.
Touch BAKE once to decrease (-)
the oven temperature, or twice to
increase (+).
When you have made the
adjustment, touch the START pad
to go back to the time of day display.
Use your oven as you would
normally.
NOTE: The thermostat adjustment for Baking
will also affect Convection Baking or Convection
Roasting.
The oven temperature can be
adjusted up as much as 35°F. or
down as much as 35°F. Touch the
number pads the same way you read
them. For example, to change the
oven temperature 15°F., touch 1
and 5.
The type of margarine will affect baking performance!
Most recipes for baking have been developed using high fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you
decrease the fat, the recipe may not give the same results as with a higher fat product.
Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries, cookies or candies are made with low fat spreads. The lower the fat
content of a spread product, the more noticeable these differences become.
Federal standards require products labeled “margarine” to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low fat spreads, on the
other hand, contain less fat and more water. The high moisture content of these spreads affects the texture and flavor of
baked goods. For best results with your old favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or stick spreads containing at least
70% vegetable oil.
