IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical
shock,
InJury to persons, or damage
when using the
range, follow basic precautions,
lncludlng
Read all instructions before using
the range.
l Install or locate the range only in
accordance with the provided
Installation Instructions. It is recommended that the range be
installed by a qualified installer.
The range must be properly
connected to electrical supply
and grounded.
0 Do not use the range for warming or heating the room. Persons
could be burned or injured, or
a fire could start.
l Do not leave children
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. They
could be burned or injured.
l Do not wear loose or hanging
garments when using the range.
They could ignite if they touch a
hot surface unit or heating ele
ment and you could be burned.
0 Do not repair or replace any
part of the range unless specifitally recommended in this manual. All other servicing should
be referred to a qualified
technician.
l Do not store flammable
materials in or near the range. They
could explode or burn.
0 Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flaming pan on cooktop by covering with a well-fitted
lid, cookie sheet or flat tray, Flaming grease outside of pan can
be extinguished with baking
soda or, if available, a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
l Use only dry potholders.
Moist
or damp potholders on hot surl
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
faces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let potholder touch
hot heating elements. Do not use
a towel or bulky cloth for a potholder. They could catch on fire.
Select a pan with a flat bottom
that is about the same size as
the surface unit. If pan is smaller
than the surface unit, some of
the heating element will be
exposed and may result in the
igniting of clothing or potholders.
Correct pan size also improves
cooking efficiency.
Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings. A
boil-over could result and cause
smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite.
Make sure the reflector bowls
are in place during cooking.
Cooking without reflector bowls
may subject the wiring and
components underneath them
to damage.
Do not line reflector bowls with
aluminum foil or other liners.
Improper installation of these
liners may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire.
Check to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe for use on the
cooktop. Only certain types of
glass, glass-ceramic, ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktops
without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature.
Turn Pan handles inward, but
not over other surface units. This
will help reduce the chance
of burns, igniting of flammable
materials, and spills due to
bumping of the pan.
Do not soak removable heating
elements in water. The element
COntlnUed

l
l
l
l
l
l
l
will be damaged and shock or
fire could result.
Use care when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing
food.
Do not heat unopened containers. They could explode. The
hot contents could cause burns
and container particles could
cause injury.
Keep range vents unobstructed.
Always position 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 clean door seal. It is
essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub,
damage, or move the seal.
Clean only parts recommended
in this Use and Care Guide.
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, broiler grid,
oven racks and other utensils.
Do not use your oven to clean
miscellaneous parts.
l
l
Do not store things children
might want above the range.
Children could be burned or
injured while climbing on it.
Do not touch surface units, areas
near units, heating elements or
interior surfaces of oven. Surface
units and heating elements may
be hot even though they are
dark in color. Areas near surface
units and 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 surface units, areas near
units, heating elements or interior
surfaces of oven until they have
had sufficient time to cool. Other
surfaces of the range may
become hot enough to cause
burns; such as, the oven vent
opening, the surface near the
vent opening, the cooktop, the
oven door and window.
. FOR YOUR SAFETY l
DO NOT STORE OR USE GASOLINE
OR OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS
AND LIQUIDS IN THE VICINITY OF
THIS OR ANY OTHER APPLIANCE.
THE FUMES CAN CREATE A FIRE
HAZARD OR EXPLOSION.

unit, or keep food warm on it while
the oven is on.
Burn Hazard
It you leave a utensil on the right
rear surface unit, use potholders
when movlng It. Pan handles can
become
hot enough to burn.
Plastic utensils left over the vent
can melt.
The vent is needed for air circulation.
Do not block the vent. Poor baking
can result.
Optional Rotisserie
If you would like a rotisserie for your oven, you can order a kit (Part No.
261881)from your Whirlpool Dealer. The kit includes easy installation
instructions.
Optional Door Panel Pat
If you would like to change the color of your oven door glass to white or
almond (Model RS675PXV only], you can order one of these kits: White (Kit No.

Burn, Electrical
Shock and Fire Hazard
Make sure all surface units are OFF before replacing
surface units and
reflector bowls. Failure to do so can result in burns or electrical
shock.
Do not line the reflector bowls with toil. Flre or electrical
shock could
result.
1. Turn off all
surface units.
3. Hold the surface unit as level as
possible with the terminal just
started into the receptacle. Push
the surface unit terminal into the
receptacle.
2. Line up openings in the reflector
bowl with the surface unit receptacle and the element hold down
clip.
4. When terminal is pushed into the
receptacle as far as it will go, push
down the edge of the surface unit
opposite the receptacle. The element hold down clip will keep the
surface unit from moving around.
NOTE: Reflector bowls reflect heat back to the utensils on the surface units.
They also help catch spills. When they are kept clean, they reflect heat
better and look new longer.
If a reflector bowl gets discolored,
some of the utensils may not be flat
enough, or some may be too large for the surface unit. In either case,
some of the heat that’s meant to go Into or around a utensil goes down
and heats the reflector bowl. Thls extra heat can discolor It. See Cooking
Guide for further lnformatlon.

How It Works
During the Self-Cleaning cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it does for
baking or broiling...approximately
875°F (468°C). This heat breaks up grease
and soil and burns it off.
