cooktop will retain heat after the controls have been turned off.
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.
Use proper pan sizes. This appliance is equipped with 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.
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.
Read and follow all instructions and warnings on the cleaning cream
labels.
Be sure you know which control knob operates each surface unit. Make
sure you turned on the correct surface unit.
Always turn the surface units off before removing cookware.

ABOUT SURFACE COOKING
BEFORE COOKING
CAUTION
• Do not use the glass cooktop surface as a cutting board.
• Do not place or store items that can melt or catch fire on the glass cooktop, even
when it is not being used.
• Turn the surface units on only after placing the cookware.
• Do not store heavy items above the cooktop surface. They could fall and damage it.
DURING COOKING
CAUTION
• Do not place aluminum foil or plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon
holders, or plastic wrappings on the range when it is in use. The hot air from the vent
could melt plastics or ignite flammable items.
• Make sure the correct surface unit is turned on.
• Never cook directly on the glass. Always use cookware.
• Always place the pan in the center of the surface unit you are cooking on.
• Never leave surface units unattended while using a high heat setting. Boilovers cause
smoking and/or greasy spllovers that may catch on fire.
• Turn the surface units off before removing cookware.
• Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very
difficult to remove.
AFTER COOKING
CAUTION
• Do not touch the surface units until they have cooled down.
• The surface may be still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched
before it has cooled down sufficiently.
• Immediately clean spills on the cooking area to prevent a tough cleaning chore later.
• If cabinet storage is provided directly above the cooking surface, make sure that the
items are infrequently used and can be safely stored in an area subjected to heat.
Temperatures may be unsafe for items such as volatile liquids, cleaners or aerosol
sprays.
About the radiant surface elements
The temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the temperature rises, the radiant element will glow
red. To maintain the selected setting, the element will cycle on and off. The heating element retains
enough heat to provide a uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle. For efficient cooking,
turn off the element several minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to
complete the cooking process.
Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to cycle ON and OFF, even at the HI
setting. This helps to prevent damage to the ceramic cooktop. Cycling at the HI setting is
normal and can occur if the cookware is too small for the radiant element or if the cookware
bottom is not flat.

Using the warming center
The warming center, located in the back center of the glass surface, will keep hot, cooked food
at serving temperature.
• The surface warmer will not glow red like the cooking elements.
• Do not warm food on the warming center for more than two hours.
CAUTION
• Use only cookware and dishes recommended as safe for oven and cooktop use.
• Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from the warming center as
cookware and plates will be hot.
• When warming pastries and breads the cover should have an opening to allow
moisture to escape.
• Do not use plastic wrap to cover foods. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very
difficult to clean.
• Food should be kept in its container and covered with a lid or aluminum foil to
maintain food quality.
• Always start with hot food. Eating uncooked or cold food placed on the warming
center could result in illness.
1. Turn the warming center on.
Press the WARMING CENTER ON/OFF pad.
2. Select the power setting you want.
Pressing the WARMING CENTER LEVEL pad once will set it to
the level 1 setting. Press the pad twice for the level 2 setting, 3
times for level 3.
3. Turn the warming center off.
Press the WARMING CENTER ON/OFF pad.
• Pressing the CLEAR/OFF pad does not turn the warming center off.
• For best results, all foods on the warming center should be covered with a lid or
aluminum foil. When warming pastries or breads, the cover should be vented to allow
moisture to escape.

HOW TO SET THE APPLIANCE FOR SURFACE COOKING
CAUTION
• The surface elements may be hot and burns may occur. Do not touch surface
elements until they have cooled down sufficiently.
• At high or medium-high settings, never leave food unattended. Boilovers cause
smoking and greasy spillovers may catch on fire.
• Be sure you turn the control knob to OFF when you finish cooking.
• The area between the high and off settings, are not appropriate for cooking.
Using the right cookware can prevent many problems, such as uneven cooking or extended
cooking times. Using the proper pans will reduce cooking times and cook food more evenly.
CORRECT
Flat bottom and straight sides.
• Tight fitting lids.
Check for flatness by
rotating a ruler across the
bottom of the cookware.
INCORRECT
SURFACE COOKING
USING THE PROPER COOKWARE
Curved and warped pan
bottoms.
• Weight of handle does not tilt
pan.
• Pan is well balanced.
• Pan size matches the amount
of food to be prepared
and the size of the surface
element.
• Made of a material that
conducts heat well.
Pan overhangs element by more
than one-half inch.
Pan is smaller than element.
• Always match pot diameter to
element surface diameter.
Heavy handle tilts pan.

2013-06-11 �� 12:38:40
CHOOSING THE PROPER COOKWARE
What your cookware is made of determines how evenly and quickly heat is transferred from the surface
element to the pan bottom.
• ALUMINUM - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food will cause the aluminum to darken.
(Anodized aluminum cookware resists staining & pitting.). If aluminum pans are slid across the
ceramic cooktop, they may leave metal marks that resemble scratches. Remove these marks
immediately.
• COPPER - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily. May leave metal marks on ceramic glass.
• STAINLESS STEEL - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean
and resists staining.
• CAST IRON - A poor conductor; retains heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is
reached. Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.
• ENAMELWARE - Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material. Porcelain-enamel
coating must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktops.
• GLASS - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may
scratch the glass.
PROTECTING THE SMOOTHTOP SURFACE
Cleaning
• Clean the cooktop before using it for the first time.
• Clean your cooktop daily or after each use. This will keep your cooktop looking good and can prevent
damage.
• If a spillover occurs while cooking, immediately clean the spill from the cooking area while it is hot to
prevent a tough cleaning chore later. Using extreme care, wipe the spill with a clean dry towel.
• Do not allow spills to remain on the cooking area or the cooktop trim for a long period of time.
• Do not use abrasive cleansing powders or scouring pads, which will scratch the cooktop.
• Do not use chlorine bleach, ammonia, or other cleansers not specifically recommended for use on
a glass-ceramic surface.
Preventing marks and scratches
• Do not use glass cookware. They may scratch the cooktop.
• Do not place a trivet or wok ring between the cooktop and the pan. These items can mark or
scratch the cooktop.
• Make sure the cooktop and the pan bottom are clean.
• Do not slide metal pans across the cooktop.
Preventing stains
• Do not use a soiled dish cloth or sponge to clean the cooktop surface. A film will remain, which may
cause stains on the cooking surface after the area is heated.
• Continuously cooking on a soiled surface may/will result in a permanent stain.
Preventing other damage
• Do not allow plastic, sugar, or foods with high sugar content to melt onto the hot cooktop. Should
this happen, clean immediately.
• Do not let a pan boil dry as this will damage the cooktop and the pan.
• Do not cook food directly on the cooktop without the proper cookware.

USING THE EASY COOK FEATURE
Slow Cook
The Slow Cook feature may be used to cook food more slowly at lower oven temperatures. The
extended cooking times allow better distribution of flavors in many recipes. This feature is ideal for
roasting beef, pork & poultry. Slow cooking meats may result on the exterior of meats becoming dark but
nor burnt. This is normal.

that you wait until the oven has cooled down and Hot disappears from the display.
• To avoid lowering the oven temperature and lengthening proofing time, do not open the oven door
unnecessarily.
• Check bread products early to avoid over-proofing.
• Do not use the proofing mode for warming food or keeping food hot. The proofing oven temperature is
not hot enough to hold foods at safe temperatures. Use the warm feature. (see next page).
• For best results, cover the dough with a cloth or with plastic wrap (the plastic may need to be anchored
underneath the container so the oven fan will not blow it off).
Crispy Pizza
This pizza function is designed for crisp and browned bottom while
keeping the topping moist.
1. Press the Pizza pad.
2. Press the SET/START pad to begin pizza cooking.
Use only 1 rack and place the rack in position 2 or 3 for the best
results when using the pizza feature. The default temperature is
400’F. You may adjust the oven temperature to fit your needs.
Follow the package instructions for preheating and baking times.
The pizza setting is not timed. Be sure to monitor the time to finish
cooking the pizza.

SELF-CLEANING
A self-cleaning oven uses high temperatures (well above cooking temperatures) to burn off leftover
grease and residue completely or reduce them to a finely powdered ash that you can wipe away
with a damp cloth.
CAUTION
• During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the range can become very hot to touch.
Do not leave small children unattended near the appliance.
• The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the selfcleaning cycle of any range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.
• Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom or any other part of the range with
aluminum foil. Doing so will result in poor heat distribution, produce poor baking
results and cause permanent damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil will melt to
the interior surface of the oven).
• Do not force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking
system. Use care when opening the oven door after the self-cleaning cycle is
complete. Stand to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow hot air or
steam to escape. The oven may still be VERY HOT.
Before a self-cleaning cycle
• We recommend venting your kitchen with an open window
or using a ventilation fan or hood during the self-cleaning
cycle.
Fig. 1
• Remove the wire rack, broil pan, broil pan insert, all
cookware and any aluminum foil from the oven.
• Wipe up debris from the oven bottom. (Fig. 1)
• The silver-colored oven racks can be self-cleaned, but they
will darken, lose their luster and become hard to slide.

• Residue on the front frame of the range and outside the
gasket on the door will need to be cleaned by hand. Clean
these areas with hot water, soap-filled steel-wool pads or
cleansers such as Soft Scrub. Rinse well with clean water
and dry.
• Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass material of the oven
door gasket cannot withstand abrasion. It is essential for
the gasket to remain intact. If you notice it becoming worn
or frayed, replace it. (Fig. 2)
• Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in place and the
oven light is off.

STEAM-CLEANING
How to set the oven for steam-cleaning
Steam-cleaning saves time and energy for light cleaning. For heavier-duty cleaning of debris and
grease, use the self-cleaning function.
1. Remove all accessories from the oven.
2. Pour approximately 10 oz. (300 ml) of water onto the bottom of
the empty oven and close the oven door.
Use normal water only, no distilled water.
3. Press the STEAM CLEAN pad.
4. Press the SET/START pad.
When the operation is complete, the display will blink and a beep
will sound.
5. Press the CLEAR/OFF pad.
6. Clean the oven’s interior.
There will be a significant amount of water remaining on the
bottom of the oven after a steam-cleaning cycle. Remove the
residual water with a sponge or soft dry cloth.
When steam-cleaning, use exactly 10 oz. of water since this produces the best results.
If you press the STEAM CLEAN pad when the oven temperature is above 100˚F, Hot will
appear in the display. Because these functions produce the best results when started while
the oven is cool, we recommend that you wait until the oven has cooled down and Hot
disappears from the display.
After a steam-cleaning cycle
• Take care when opening the door before a steam-cleaning procedure has ended; the water on
the bottom is hot.
• Open the oven door and remove the remaining water with a sponge. Do not leave the residual
water in the oven for any length of time. Wipe the oven clean and dry with a soft cloth (do not
forget to wipe under the oven door seal).
• Use a detergent-soaked sponge, a soft brush, or a nylon scrubber to wipe the oven interior.
Remove stubborn residue with a nylon scourer. You can remove lime deposits with a cloth
soaked in vinegar.
• If the oven remains dirty, you can repeat the procedure once the oven has cooled.
• For heavy residue, such as grease left over from roasting, we recommend that you rub
detergent into the residue before activating the steam-cleaning function.
• After cleaning, leave the oven door ajar at a 15° angle to allow the interior enamel surface to dry
thoroughly.

CARE AND CLEANING OF THE OVEN
• Be sure all controls are OFF and all surfaces are COOL before cleaning any part
of the range.
• If your range is removed for cleaning, servicing or any
reason, be sure the Anti-Tip device is re-engaged properly
when the range is replaced. Failure to take this precaution
could result in tipping of the range and cause injury.
Oven vent
• The oven vent is located above the right rear surface unit.
• This area could become hot during oven use.
• It is normal for steam to come out of the vent.
• The vent is important for proper air circulation. Never
block this vent.
Cleaning painted parts and decorative trim
• For general cleaning, use a cloth with hot and soapy water.
• For more difficult residue and built-up grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the area and leave for 30
to 60 minutes. Wipe with a damp cloth and dry. Do not use abrasive cleaners on any of these surfaces; they
can scratch.
MAINTAINING YOUR APPLIANCE

Cleaning stainless steel surfaces
1. Shake the bottle of Stainless Steel Appliance Cleaner or polish well.
2. Place a small amount of stainless steel appliance cleaner or polish on a damp cloth or damp paper towel.
3. Clean a small area, rubbing with the grain of the stainless steel if applicable.
4. Dry and buff with a clean, dry paper towel or soft cloth.
5. Repeat as necessary.
• Do not use a steel-wool pad; it will scratch the surface.
• If a mineral oil-based stainless steel appliance cleaner has been used before to clean
the appliance, wash the surface with dishwashing liquid and water prior to using the
Stainless Steel Appliance Cleaner or polish.
Cleaning the broil pan and insert
• Do not attempt to clean the broil pan or insert by leaving it in the oven during a selfcleaning cycle.
• After broiling, remove the broil pan from the oven. Remove the insert from the pan. Carefully
pour out the grease from the pan into a proper container.
• Wash and rinse the broil pan and grid in hot water with a soap-filled scouring pad.
• Soaking the pan will remove burned-on foods.
• Both the broil pan and insert may be cleaned with a commercial oven cleaner and are
dishwasher-safe.
• Do not store a soiled broil pan and insert anywhere in the range.
These are not supplied with the range.

Oven racks
• If the racks are left in the oven during a self-cleaning cycle, their color will turn slightly blue and
the finish will be dull. After the self-cleaning cycle is complete and the oven has cooled, rub the
sides of the racks with wax paper or a clothing containing a small amount of cooking oil. This
will help the racks glide more easily into their tracks.

• DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The oven
door gasket is made of a woven material which is
essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to
rub, damage or remove this gasket.
CARE AND CLEANING OF THE GLASS COOKTOP
Normal daily use cleaning
Use only a ceramic cooktop cleaner on the glass cooktop. Other creams may not be as effective.
By following these steps, you can maintain and protect the surface of your glass cooktop.
1. Before using the cooktop for the first time, clean it with a ceramic cooktop cleaner. This helps
protect the top and makes cleanup easier.
2. Daily use of a ceramic cooktop cleaner will help keep the cooktop looking new.
3. Shake the cleaning cream well. Apply a few drops of cleaner directly to the cooktop.
4. Use a paper towel or a cleaning pad for ceramic cooktops to clean the entire cooktop surface.
5. Use a dry cloth or paper towel to remove all cleaning residue. No need to rinse.
WARNING
DAMAGE to your glass surface may occur if you use scrub pads other than those
recommended.
Removing burned-on residue
1. Allow the cooktop to cool.
2. Spread a few drops of ceramic cooktop cleaner on the entire burned residue area.
3. Using the cleaning pad for ceramic cooktops, rub the residue area, applying pressure as needed.
4. If any residue remains, repeat the steps listed above as needed.
5. For additional protection, after all residue has been removed, polish the entire surface with
ceramic cooktop cleaner and a paper towel.
35_ Maintaining your appliance
FE-R400_XAC_DG68-00297A-06_EN.indd 35
2013-06-11 �� 12:38:46
Removing heavy, burned-on residue
1. Allow the cooktop to cool.
2. Use the single-edge razor-blade scraper at approximately a 45° angle against the glass surface
and scrape the soil. It will be necessary to apply pressure in order to remove the residue.
3. After scraping with the razor scraper, spread a few drops of ceramic cooktop cleaner on the
entire burned residue area. Use the cleaning pad to remove any remaining residue. (Do not
scrape the seal.)
4. For additional protection, after all residue has been removed, polish the entire surface with the
cooktop cleaner and a paper towel.
1. Be careful not to slide pots and pans across your cooktop. It will leave marks on the cooktop
surface. You can remove these marks by applying ceramic cooktop cleaner.
2. If pots with a thin overlay of aluminum or copper are allowed to boil dry, the overlay may leave
black discoloration on the cooktop. You should remove this discoloration immediately or it may
become permanent.
WARNING
Carefully check the bottoms of pans for roughness that may scratch the cooktop.
Cleaning the cooktop seal
To clean the seal around the edges of the glass, lay a wet cloth on it for a few minutes, then wipe
clean with a nonabrasive cleaner.
MAINTAINING YOUR APPLIANCE
Removing metal marks and scratches
Potential for permanent damage to the glass surface
• Sugary spillovers (such as jellies, fudge, candy, syrups) or melted plastics can cause pitting
of the surface of your cooktop. This is not covered under the warranty. You should clean the
spill while it is still hot. Take special care when removing hot substances. Refer to the following
section.
• When using a scraper, be sure it is new and the razor blade is still sharp; do not use a dull or
nicked blade.
Cleaning sugary spills and melted plastic
1. Turn off all surface units. Remove hot pans.
2. Wearing an oven mitt, use a single-edge razor-blade scraper to move the spill to a cool area of
the cooktop. Remove the spill with paper towels.
3. Any remaining spillover should be left until the surface of the cooktop has cooled.
4. Don’t use the surface units again until all of the residue has been completely removed.
If pitting or indentation in the glass surface has already occurred, the cooktop glass will
have to be replaced. In this case, service will be necessary.
