Set the burner control so that the flame does not extend beyond the bottom of
the pan.
If materials inside an oven or warming drawer should ignite, keep door closed.
Turn off the appliance and disconnect the circuit at the circuit breaker box.
Use this appliance only for its intended use as described in this manual. For
example, never use the appliance for warming or heating the room. Never use
the appliance for storage.
Do not allow aluminum foil, plastic, paper or cloth to come in contact with a
hot burner or grate. Do not allow pans to boil dry.
If the cooktop is near a window, forced air vent, or fan, be certain that flammable materials such as window coverings do not blow over or near the burners
or elements. They could catch on fire.
Always have a working smoke detector near the kitchen.
Never leave the cooktop unattended when in use. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers may ignite.
Safety
WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE:
a) Never leave surface units unattended at high settings. Boilovers
cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite. Heat oils
slowly on low or medium settings.
b) Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat or when flambéing
food (i.e. Crepes Suzette, Cherries Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef
Flambe').
c) Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should not be allowed to
accumulate on fan or filter.
d) Use proper pan size. Always use cookware appropriate for the size
of the surface element.
•
•
•
In the event that personal clothing or hair catches fire, drop and roll immediately to extinguish flames.
Smother flames from food fires other than grease fires with baking soda.
Never use water on cooking fires.
Take care that drafts like those from fans or forced air vents do not push the
flames so that they extend beyond the edges of the pan.
WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS IN THE EVENT OF A
RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:
a) SMOTHER FLAMES with a close-fitting lid, cookie sheet, or metal tray,
then turn off the burner. BE CAREFUL TO PREVENT BURNS. If the
flames do not go out immediately, EVACUATE AND CALL THE FIRE
DEPARTMENT.
b) NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN - You may be burned.
c) DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths or towels - a violent
steam explosion will result.
d) Have an appropriate fire extinguisher available, nearby, highly visible and
easily accessible near the oven.
e) Use an extinguisher ONLY if:
1) You know you have a Class ABC extinguisher, and you already know
how to operate it.
2) The fire is small and contained in the area where it started.
3) The fire department is being called.
4) You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.
•
Whenever possible, do not operate the ventilation system during a cooktop
fire. However, do not reach through fire to turn it off.

Safety
Gas Safety
•
To prevent carbon monoxide build-up, do not block appliance air vents.
WARNING: If the information in this manual is not followed
exactly, a fire or explosion may result causing property damage,
personal injury or death.
- Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
- WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS:
•
•
•
•
•
Do not try to light any appliance.

- Installation and service must be performed by a qualified installer,
authorized service agency or the gas supplier.
•
•
•
•
Have the installer show you where the gas shut-off valve is located.
If a burner goes out and gas escapes, open windows and doors. Wait until
gas dissipates before using the appliance.
If you smell gas, your installer has not done a proper job of checking for leaks.
If the connections are not perfectly tight, you can have a small leak and,
therefore, a faint smell. Finding a gas leak is not a "do-it-yourself" procedure.
Some leaks can only be found with the burner control in the ON
position and this must be done by a qualified service technician. See “WHAT
TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS:” on page 4.
WARNING:
Use this appliance only for its intended use as described in this manual. NEVER use this appliance as a space heater to heat or warm a
room. Doing so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning and overheating the appliance. Never use the appliance for storage.
Burn Prevention
•
During a power failure, only the cooktop burners can be lit manually.
•
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, potholders, or other flammable materials contact surface units
or areas near units until they have had sufficient time to cool. Among these
areas are the cooktop and areas facing the cooktop.
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, potholders, 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, surfaces near these openings and oven doors.
Exercise caution when opening the appliance. Standing to the side, open the
door (or drawer) slowly and slightly to let hot air and/or steam escape. Keep
your face clear of the opening and make sure there are no children or pets
near the unit. After the release of hot air and/or steam, proceed with your

cooking. Keep doors shut unless necessary for cooking or cleaning purposes.
Do not leave open doors unattended.
Do not heat or warm unopened food containers. Build-up of pressure may
cause the container to burst and cause injury.
Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If a rack must
be moved while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact the heating elements.
Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat or when flambéing food (i.e.
Crepes Suzette, Cherries Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef Flambe').
Use high heat settings on the cooktop only when necessary. To avoid bubbling and splattering, heat oil slowly on no more than a low-medium setting.
Hot oil is capable of causing extreme burns and injury.
Never move a pan of hot oil, especially a deep fat fryer. Wait until it is cool.
When children become old enough to use the appliance, it is the legal responsibility of the parents or legal guardians to ensure that they are instructed in
safe practices by qualified persons.
Do not allow anyone to climb, stand, lean, sit, or hang on any part of an appliance, especially a door, warming drawer, or storage drawer. This can damage
the appliance, and the unit may tip over, potentially causing severe injury.
Do not allow children to use this appliance unless closely supervised by an
adult. Children and pets should not be left alone or unattended in the area
where the appliance is in use. They should never be allowed to play in its
vicinity, whether or not the appliance is in use.
CAUTION
Items of interest to children should not be stored in an appliance, in cabinets
above an appliance or on the backsplash. Children climbing on an appliance to
reach items could be seriously injured.
Cleaning Safety
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE:
The California Safe Drinking and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of
California to publish a list of substances known to the state to cause cancer, birth
defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of
potential exposure to such substances.
a) The burning of gas cooking fuel and the elimination of soil during selfcleaning can generate small amounts of Carbon Monoxide.
b) The fiberglass insulation in self-clean ovens gives off very small amounts
of formaldehyde during the first several cleaning cycles. California lists
formaldehyde as a potential cause of cancer. Carbon Monoxide is a
potential cause of reproductive toxicity.
c) Exposure to these substances can be minimized by:
1) Providing good ventilation when cooking with gas.
2) Providing good ventilation during and immediately after self cleaning
the oven.
3) Operating the unit according to the instructions in this manual.
•
•
•
•
•
Do not clean the appliance while it is still hot. Some cleaners produce noxious
fumes when applied to a hot surface. Wet clothes or sponges can cause
burns from steam.
When self-cleaning, confirm that the door locks and will not open. If the door
does not lock, do not run Self-Clean. Contact service.
Birds have very sensitive respiratory systems. Keep pet birds out of the
kitchen or other rooms where kitchen fumes could reach them. During self
clean, fumes are released that may be harmful to birds. Other kitchen fumes
such as overheating margarines and cooking oils may also be harmful.
After a spill or boilover, turn off the burner and allow the cooktop to cool.
Clean around the burner and burner ports. After cleaning, check for proper
operation.
Keep oven free from grease build up.

Food Safety
Do not place food directly on oven bottom.
Follow the manufacturer's directions when using cooking or roasting bags.
Hold the handle of the pan when stirring or turning food. This helps prevent
spills and movement of the pan.
Use Proper Pan Size. The use of undersized cookware will expose a portion
of the heating element or burner to direct contact and may result in ignition of
clothing. Select cookware having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface heating unit. This appliance is equipped with one or more surface units of
different size. Proper relationship of cookware to heating element or burner
will also improve efficiency.
Always position handles of utensils inward so they do not extend over adjacent work areas, burners, or the edge of the cooktop. This reduces the risk of
fires, spills and burns.
Adjust burner flame size so that it does not extend beyond the edge of the
cookware. Proper relationship of cookware to burner flame reduces safety
risks.
Have the installer show you the location of the circuit breaker or fuse. Mark it
for easy reference.
This appliance must be properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician. Connect only to properly grounded outlet. Refer to Installation Instructions for details.
This appliance is intended for normal family household use only. It is not
approved for outdoor use. See the Warranty. If you have any questions, contact the manufacturer.
Do not store or use corrosive chemicals, vapors, flammables or nonfood products in or near this appliance. It is specifically designed for use when heating
or cooking food. The use of corrosive chemicals in heating or cleaning will
damage the appliance and could result in injury.
Do not operate this appliance if it is not working properly, or if it has been
damaged. Contact an authorized servicer.
Do not obstruct oven vents.
Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in this manual. Refer all servicing to a factory authorized service center.
In the event of an error the display flashes and beeps continuously. If this
happens during self-clean, disconnect appliance from the power supply and
call a qualified technician.
In the event of an error the display flashes and beeps continuously. Disconnect appliance from the power supply and call a qualified technician.
Do not operate oven without oven bottom in place.
CAUTION:
To maintain food safety, follow these guidelines:
1) 1) DO NOT use the warming drawer to heat cold food (exception: it is safe
to use the drawer to crisp crackers, chips or dry cereal and to warm
plates.
2) 2) Be sure to maintain proper food temperature. The USDA recommends
holding hot food at 140°F or warmer.
3) 3) DO NOT warm food for longer than one hour.

Burner Caps
The cooktop has four burner caps. Match the size of the burner cap to the size of
the burner. Burner caps are not interchangeable.
English 7
Getting Started
Make sure the burner cap is completely seated on the burner base before
attempting to light the burner. If the burner cap is not placed correctly, the burner
may not light or the flame may not burn completely or correctly. The appliance is
equipped with two types of burners: standard and diffusion. See the sections
below for further information on each.
Diffusion Burner Caps
Depending on the model, the appliance is equipped with between 1 and 2 diffusion burner caps. They provide a more even heat, especially when cooking at
lower temperatures.
Burner Grates
WARNING:
To prevent flare-ups, do not use the cooktop without all burner caps and all burner
grates properly positions. Do not use a grate if the feet are missing or damaged.
There are two burner grates: one for the left side of the cooktop and one for the
right side of the cooktop. Position them so that the circular opening is over the
burner cap. Burner grates should rest flat on the cooktop. The rubber feet on the
grates should rest in the indents on the cooktop.
Left Side
Burner Grate
Right Side
Burner Grate
Figure 23: Grates for Free-standing Models
Electronic Ignitor
The cooktop uses electronic ignitors to light the burners, There is no pilot light.
Each burner has its own ignitor. For proper operation, keep the ignitor clean and
dry. It is necessary to clean these when there is a boilover or when the burner
does not light even though the ignitor clicks.
CAUTION:
All ignitors spark when any single burner is turned on. Do not touch any
of the burners when the cooktop is in use.
High Power Burner
The high power burner is the largest burner. It is the most powerful burner on the
cooktop. The burner cap retains heat longer than normal burner caps and, at low
settings, prohibits the flame from touching the cookware. This results in a gentle,
more predictable heat. Use the low settings on this burner to simmer large
amounts of sauces or soups. Use the high settings to quickly bring large amounts
of water to a boil.
Precision Burner
The precision burner is the smallest burner on the cooktop. It is well suited for
gentle cooking of small amounts of food. Use the burner to melt butter or chocolate or to prepare delicate sauces.
English 8

protective liners to line any part of an appliance, especially surface unit
drip bowls or oven bottom. Installation of these liners may result in a risk
of electric shock or fire.
Oven Vent
The oven vent is located below the display above the rear left cooktop burner. It is
normal to see steam escaping from the vent and condensation may collect on the
backguard and cooktop. This area may become hot when the oven is in use. To
prevent carbon monoxide build-up, do not block the vent. The oven vent is also
important for air circulation.
CAUTION:
To prevent carbon monoxide build-up, do not block appliance air vents.
Automatic Shutoff
The oven will automatically shut off after 12 hours (24 hours if the time format is
set for 24 hour in the Select Function section).
Self Cleaning
The oven features a self-cleaning function that eliminates the manual labor
involved with cleaning your oven.

Boiling Water
Time to boil can vary greatly depending on environmental conditions. Try the following tips to decrease boil time:
•
•
•
•
•
Recommended Settings
Use a lid.
Use a pan that is appropriately sized for the amount of water and the size of
the burner.
Select a pan with a flat base (See “Cookware Selection Guide” on page 26 for
details).
Choose a medium-weight pan (rather than a heavy-weight one).
Boil the smallest amount of water necessary. Smaller volumes will boil faster
than larger volumes.
Use this chart as a guide for heat settings. A range of heat settings are listed
because the actual setting depends on:
•
•
•
•
type and quality of pan (See “Selecting Cookware”),
type, quantity and temperature of the food,
burner used and
the cook’s preference.

Cookware Selection
Guide
Cookware Characteristics
Pan selection directly affects cooking speed and uniformity. For best results select
pans with flat bases. When a pan is hot, the base (pan bottom) should rest evenly
on the surface without wobbling (rocking). Flat, medium-to-heavy-weight pans are
best.
To Test the Flatness of Your Pans
Turn the pan upside down on the countertop and place a
ruler flat against the bottom of the pan. The bottom of the
pan and the straight edge of the ruler should be flush
against each other.
English 26
Getting the Most Out of Your Appliance
Another simple test to determine even heat distribution across the cookware bottom is to place 1”
(25.4 mm) of water in the pan. Bring the water to a
boil and observe the location of the bubbles as the
water starts to boil. Good, flat cookware will have
an even distribution of bubbles over the bottom
surface area.
Match Pan Diameter to Flame Size
The flame should be the same size as the bottom of the pan or smaller. Do not
use small pans with high flame settings as the flames can lick up the sides of the
pan.
Place oversized pans that span two burners front to rear, not side to side.
Tight Fitting Lids – A lid shortens cooking/boiling time by holding heat inside the
pot.
Cookware Tips
•
Use of pots and pans with rounded (either concave or convex) warped or
dented bottoms should be avoided. See drawings.
Make sure the bottom of the pot or pan being used is clean and dry.
Use pots and pans with thick, smooth metal bottoms.
•
•
Specialty Pans
Specialty pans such as griddles, roasters, pressure cookers, woks, water bath
canners and pressure canners must have the same features as described above.
Use only a flat-bottomed wok.

Baking results are better if pans are placed in the center of the oven. If baking
more than one pan on a rack, allow at least 1" to 1 ½” of air space around the pan.
When baking four cake layers at the same time, stagger pans on two racks so that
one pan is not directly above the other. To allow for best baking results stagger

Here are some tips for cooking with baking pans:
•
•
•
•
•
Preheating the Oven
Glass baking dishes absorb heat, therefore reduce oven temperature 25°F
when baking in glass.
Shiny, smooth metal reflects heat resulting in lighter, more delicate browning.
Dark, rough or dull pans will absorb heat resulting in browner, crisper crust.
Some manufacturers recommend reducing temperature 25° F when using
these pans. Follow manufacturer recommendations.
Use glass or dark metal pans for pies.
Insulated baking pans may increase the recommended baking time.
Preheat the oven if the recipe recommends it. Preheating is necessary for good
results when baking cakes, cookies, pastry and breads. Setting a higher temperature does not shorten preheat time. Place oven racks in proper position before
preheating. A beep will confirm that oven is preheated and selected oven temperature will be displayed.
Note: Preheating the oven is not recommended when using the probe (some
models). A hot oven will impair your ability to easily connect the probe to the
receptacle and to insert it into the meat.
The Probe (some models)
•
•
•
•
•
The oven is well insulated and the retained heat will continue to cook the meat
after the oven has shut off. For this reason, remove the meat from the oven as
soon as the control beeps.
Since meat continues to cook after being removed from the oven, set the
internal (probe) temperature 5 - 10 degrees below the desired final internal
temperature (exception: poultry). Allow standing time (10 -20 minutes) before
carving the meat.
Always use the handle of the probe for inserting and removing. Use a
potholder to remove since the probe becomes hot.
Remove the probe from the oven when it is not being used.
The probe cannot be used with frozen meats. For best results, completely
thaw meats before using the probe.
Inserting the Probe
•
•
•
English 28
For meats, insert the probe tip into the thickest part and do not touch bone,
fat, or gristle.
For large poultry products and turkeys, insert the probe in the thickest part of
the inner thigh.
For other foods, such as a meatloaf, the probe tip should be located in the
center of the thickest part of the food.

Oven Cooking Modes
Bake, Proof and Warm
Baking is cooking with dry, heated air. The lower
burner cycles to maintain the oven temperature.
Bake mode can be used to prepare foods like
pastries and casseroles as well as to roast
meats.
In the Proofing mode, the oven uses the lower
burner to maintain a low temperature to proof
bread.
•
•
•
•
Proofing is the rising of a yeast dough.
The Proofing mode temperatures are 85° to 110° F. The default temperature
is 100° F.
Loosely cover the bowl or pan and use any rack that accommodates the size
of the container.
Keep the door closed and use the oven light to check the rising of the dough.
In Warming mode, the lower burner maintains a low temperature in the oven cavity in order to keep food at serving temperature.
•
•
•
Use the Warming setting on the oven to keep foods hot until ready to serve.
Warming mode temperatures are 140° - 220° F. Default temperature is 170°.
Foods that must be kept moist should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil.
CAUTION
When using Warm mode, follow these guidelines:
• Do not use the Warm Mode to heat cold food.
• Be sure to maintain proper food temperature. The USDA recommends holding hot food at 140°F or warmer.
• DO NOT warm food for longer than one hour.
Convection Bake
Convection baking is similar to baking. Heat
comes from the lower burner and an element
behind the backwall. The main difference in convection baking is that the heat is circulated
throughout the oven by the convection fan.
The Convection Bake mode is well-suited for
baking large quantities of food on multiple racks.
It can be used to prepare cookies, pies, cupcakes, pastries, breads, snack foods and appetizers among other items. The benefits of Convection Baking include:
•
•
•
•
Slight decrease in cooking time
Three rack cooking (more even browning)
Higher Volume (yeast items rise higher)
Ability to cook more items at once
For Best Results:
•
•
•
Reduce recipe temperature by 25° F. Refer to Convection Baking chart and
Automatic Convection Conversion for more information.
Place food in low-sided, uncovered pans such as cookie sheets without sides.
Center baking pans side to side on the oven rack
English 29
Getting the Most Out of Your Appliance
Automatic Convection Conversion
In the convection bake mode, the temperature is automatically reduced 25° F
from the package or recipe temperature. Simply enter the package or recipe temperature when setting the mode and the range calculates the correct temperature.
The Automatic Convection Conversion feature can be turned off to allow for manual temperature adjustment. See “Turn Automatic Convection Conversion ON or
OFF” on page 17 for details.
When the Automatic Convection Conversion feature is activated, the display will
read AUTO CONV BAKE. When the feature is turned off, it will read CONV BAKE.

Broil
Broiling uses intense heat radiated from the
upper burner. The Broil mode is best suited to
cooking thin, tender cuts of meat (1” or less),
poultry and fish. It can also be used to brown
breads and casseroles. Always broil with the
door closed.
The benefits of Broiling include:
•
•
•
Fast and efficient cooking
Cooking without the addition of fats or liquids
Browning as the food cooks
For Best Results:
•
•
•
•
•
English 30
Preheat oven 3-4 minutes. Do not preheat for more than 5 minutes.
Steaks and Chops should be at least 3/4” thick
Brush fish and poultry with butter or oil to prevent sticking
Use the broil pan and grid included with your range
Do not cover the broiler grid with foil. It is designed to drain fats and oils away
from the cooking surface to prevent smoking and spattering
Getting the Most Out of Your Appliance
•
•
•
Turn meats once halfway through the recommended cooking time (see Broil
Chart for examples).
When top browning casseroles, use only metal or glass ceramic dishes such
as Corningware®.
Never use heat-proof glass (Pyrex®); they can’t tolerate the high temperature.

Convection Roast
Convection Roast uses heat from the lower
burner and an element behind the backwall. The
heat is also circulated by the convection fan. The
result is a crispier exterior that seals in juices.
The Convection Roast mode is well suited to preparing tender cuts of meat and poultry.
The benefits of Convection Roasting, include:
•
•
As much as 25% faster cooking than standard Roasting/ Baking
Rich, golden browning
For Best Results:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Use the same temperature as indicated in the recipe.
Check doneness early as roasting time may decrease by as much as 25%.
Refer to Convection Roast Chart for examples.
Do not cover meat or use cooking bags.
Use the broil pan and grid provided with the range for roasting. A low-sided,
uncovered pan can also be used.
Use a meat thermometer to determine the internal temperature of the meat.
If the meat is browned to your liking, but is not yet done, a small strip of foil
can be placed over the meat to prevent overbrowning.
Let meat stand covered with foil 10-15 minutes after removing from the oven.

Dehydrate
The dehydrate mode dries with heat from an electric element behind the back wall
of the oven. The heat is circulated throughout the oven by the convection fan. Use
dehydrate to dry and/or preserve foods such as fruits, vegetables and herbs. This
mode holds an optimum low temperature (100° F - 160° F) while circulating the
heated air to slowly remove moisture. The oven will stay on for 48 hours before
shutting off automatically.
Note: The lower burner operates at the beginning of this mode. This is normal.
For Best Results:
•
•
•
•
•
English 32
Dry most fruits and vegetables at 140° F. Dry
herbs at 100° F. (Refer to the Dehydrate
Chart for examples).
Drying times vary depending on the moisture
and sugar content of the food, the size of the pieces, the amount being dried
and the humidity in the air. Check food at the minimum drying time.
Multiple drying racks (not included) can be used simultaneously. Contact your
dealer to order drying racks.
Treat fruits with antioxidants to avoid discoloration.
Consult a food preservation book, county Cooperative Extension Office or
library for additional information.

Preparing the Oven for Self Clean
Wipe out excessive spillage before self-cleaning the oven.
Do not clean parts or accessories in the self-clean oven.
It is common to see smoke and/or an occasional flame-up during the SelfClean cycle, depending on the content and amount of soil remaining in the
oven. If a flame persists, turn off the oven and allow it to cool before opening
the door to wipe up the excessive food soil.
The oven door locks at the beginning of the self-clean cycle.
The oven light does not operate during this mode.
During Self-Clean, the kitchen should be well ventilated to help eliminate
odors associated with Self-Clean. Odors will lessen with use.
Four hours is the preset length of cleaning. The range can also be set to clean
for 3 or 5 hours.
The mode automatically stops at the end of the clean hours.
When the oven cools after cleaning, the automatic door lock will release and
the door can be opened.
To cancel or stop while the mode is operating, press OFF.
The door will not unlock until the oven reaches a safe temperature.
WARNING
A flexible door gasket is necessary for a good seal. Do not clean, rub,
damage or move the gasket.
1. Remove all utensils and bakeware.
2. Remove oven racks. If oven racks are left in the oven during the self-clean
cycle, they will permanently lose the shiny finish and change to a dull dark finish. See Oven Cleaning Chart for proper care.
3. Wipe up excessive spills, soil, and grease before self-cleaning the oven.
Excess grease will cause flames and smoke inside the oven during self-cleaning.
