tips
Select a pan that is about the same size
as the surface unit.
l
l
l
NOTE: For best results and greater
energy efficiency, use onty flat-bottomed
cookware that makes good contact with
the surface units. Cookware with rounded,
warped, ribbed (such as some porcelain
enamelware) or dented bottoms could
cause severe overheating, which damages
the cookware and/or surface unit.
You can, however, use the newer
cookware available with slightly indented
bottoms or very small expansion channels.
This cookware is specially designed to
provide the good contact needed for best
cooking results.
Also, woks, canners and teakettles with
flat bottoms suitable for use on your
cooktop are now available in most stores
that sell housewares.
The pan should have straight sides and a
tight-fitting lid.
Choose medium to heavy gauge (thickness) pans that are fairly lightweight.
l
The pan material (metal or glass) affects
how fast heat transfers from the surface
unit through the pan material and how
evenly heat spreads over the pan bottom.
Choose pans that provide the best cooking
results.
Handles should be made of sturdy, heatresistant material and be securely attached
to the pan.
Product Damage Hazard
If a surface unit stays red for a long
time, the bottom of the pan is not flat
enough or is too small for the surface
unit. Prolonged usage of incorrect
utensils could result in damage to the
surface unit, cooktop, wiring and
surrounding areas. To prevent damage, use correct utensils, start cooking
on HI and turn control down to continue cooking.
@Do not leave an empty utensil, or one
which has boiled dry, on a hot surface
unit. The utensil could overheat and
coukl damage the utensil or surface
unit.

information
To protect your range:
l Use flat-bottomed
canners/pans for best
results.
l
l
l
l
l
Use the largest surface unit for best
resutts. Also, use a canner/pan which can
be centered over the surface unit and
which does not extend more than one inch
outside surface unit area. Large diameter
canners/pans, if not properly centered, trap
heat and can cause damage to the
woktop.
Do not place canner on two surface units
at the same time. Too much heat will build
up and will damage the cooktop.
Start with hot water. This reduces the
time the control is set on high. Reduce
heat setting to lowest position needed to
keep water boiling.
Keep reflector bowls clean for best heat
reflection.
To prolong the life of the elements:
- Prepare small batches at a time.
- Do not use elements for canning all
&Y-
Positioning
For baking/roasting
racks
and pans
with one rack, place
the rack so the top of the food will be
centered in the oven.
Rack placement for specific foods:
FOOD
Frozen pies, large
roasts, turkeys
Angel and bundt
cakes, most quick
breads, yeast
breads, casseroles,
meats
Cookies, biscuits,
muffins, cakes, nonfrozen pies
The large diameter of most water-bath or
pressure canners combined with high heat
settings for long periods of time can shorten
the life of regular surface units and cause
damage to the cooktop.
If you plan to use the cooktop for canning,
we recommend the installation of a Canning
Kit. Order the kii (Part No. 242906) from
your Whirlpool dealer or authorized
WhirlpoolSM service company.

NOTE: For recommended rack placement
when broiling, see “Broiling rack position
chart” on page 16.
Personal Injury Hazard
Always position oven rack(s) in
desired location before turning oven
on. Be sure the rack(s) is level.
l If rack(s) must be moved while oven
is hot, use potholders or oven mitts to
protect hands.
Failure to follow the above precautions
could result in personal injury.
l
9
For best air circulation
Hot air must circulate around the pans in the
oven for even heat to reach all parts of the
oven. This results in better bakfng.
l Place the pans so that one is not directly
over the other.
l For best results, allow 1% to 2 inches
(4-5 cm) of space around each pan and
between pans and oven walls. There must
be a minimum space of 1 inch (2.5 cm).
l Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at
one time.
Use the following as a guide to determine
where to place the pans:
One pan
Place in the center of the oven rack.
Two pans
Place in opposite comers of the oven rack.
Three or four pans
Place in opposite corners on each oven
rack. Stagger pans so WI pan is directly over
another.
Using
aluminum
foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spilbvers from
pies or casseroles.
l Place the foil on the oven rack below the
rack with the food. Turn up foil edges and
make sure foil is about 1 inch (3 cm)
larger all around than the dish holding the
food.
l Do not cover the entire rack with aluminum foil. It will reduce air circulation and
cause poor cooking results.
l Do not line oven bottom or entire oven
rack with foil or other liners. Poor baking
will resutt.
Electrical Shock and Fire Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements.
Failure to follow this precaution could
result in electrical shock or fire hazard
and damage to the elements.

OVEN HEATING Indicator Light will go off.
14
Adjusting
the oven temperature
Oven temperature controls will gradualty shift
after years of use. So, even though your new
oven is properly adjusted to provide accurate
temperatures, it may cook faster or slower than
your old oven.
If, after using the oven for a period of time, you
are not satisfied with the temperature settings,
you can change them by following these steps:
1. Turn the Oven Temperature Control Knob to
the off position. Pull knob straight off and flip il
over.
2. Loosen the locking screws inside the control
knob. Note the position of the notches.
3. To lower the temperature, hold knob handle
firmly and move the tooth a notch counterclockwise.
Each notch equals about 5°F
(2.5%).
4. To raise the temperature, hold knob handle
firmly and move the tooth a notch clockwise.
Each notch equals about 5°F (2.5%).
Tighten the locking screws and replace the
control knob.
Broiling
1. Position the rack before turning the oven on.
See “Broiling rack position chart” on page 16.
2. Put the broiler pan and food on the rack.
3. Close the door to the Broil Stop position (open
about 4 inches [lo.2 cm]). The door will stay
open by itself.
4. Set the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature
Control Knob to BROIL. The OVEN HEATING
Indicator Light will come on.
NOTE: Do not preheat oven when broiling.
5. When broiling is done, turn both the Oven
Selector and Oven Temperature Control Knob
to OFF. The OVEN HEATING Indicator Light
will go off.

settings allow the broil heating element to
cycle and to slow cooking. The lower the
temperature, the slower the cooking.
l
Fish and chicken are scme foods that
may cook better if you use lower broiling
temperatures.
The Oven Selector must be on BROIL for
all broiling temperatures.
NOTE: Leave the oven door partly open

Broiling
tips
I
Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling.
They are designed to drain excess liquid
and grease away from the cooking wrface
to help prevent spatter, smoke or fire.
l Refer to a broiling chart in a reliable
cookbook for correct broiling times.
9 After broiling, remove the broiler pan
from the oven when you remove the food.
Drippings will bake on the pan if you leave
it in the heated oven.
l
Energy
saving
l
l
l
l
Place meat the correct distance from
the element. Meat placed too close to
the element could spatter, smoke, bum
or catch fire during broiling.
To ensure adequate grease drainage,
do not use cookie sheets or similar
pans for broiling. Also, covering the
broiler grid with foil is not recommended. Poor drainage of grease could
result in fire. If foil is used, cut slits in
foil to line up with all openings in broiler
grid. Grease can then drain away and
cool in pan.
tips
Although the energy used for ood<ing is
usually a very small percentage of the total
energy used in the home, cooking energy
can be used efficiently. Here are some tips
to help you save energy when using your
cooking product:
l Use pens with flat bottoms, straight sides
and tight-fitting Iii.
l Match the pan to the surface unit size.
l Cook with a minimum of liquid or fat to
help shorten cooking time.
l
Fire Hazard
l
l
l
l
Preheat pans only when recommended
l
and for the shortest time possible.
Start food on higher heat settings, then set
surface unit control on low or off to finish
cooking. Use retained heat for cooking
when possible.
Use the more effiiient surface units
instead of the oven when possible.
l
l
Turn on the surface unit only after placing
filled pan on the unit.
‘Oven peeking” may cause heat loss,
longer cooking times and unsatisfactory
baking results. Rely on your timer to keep
track of the cooking time.
Bake cakes, pies or cookies when oven is
warm. Best time is after a meal has been
cooked in it.
Preheat the oven no longer than
necessary.
Pian your meals for the most effiiient use
of the range. When using the oven to cook
one food, try to cook the rest of the meal in
it also.
Do not preheat when broiling, roasting or
cooking items such as casseroles.
Keep reflector bowls clean for best heat
reflection.

Special tips ............ ............. ........... .... 35
The Self-Cleaning cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning
the oven interior. Like with the other functions of your range, you operate the Self-Cleaning
cycle with the easy-to-use electronic control. Please review the instructions in this section to
keep your oven spotless.
How the cycle
works
The Setf-Cleaning cycle uses very high heat
to burn away soil and grease. During the
cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it does
for normal baking or broiling. This high heat
breaks up the soil or grease and burns it
away.
Your oven is preset for a 3-hour SelfCleaning cycle. However, you can adjust the
cycle time to the amount of soil in your oven.
You can set the cycle anywhere between 2
and 4 hours. (See “Setting the controls” on
paw 32.1
The graph at the right is representative of
a normal, Shour Self-Cleaning cycle. Note
that the heating stops when the 3-hour
setting is up, but 1 takes longer for the oven
to cool enough to unlock.
Before
you start
Before you start the Self-Cleaning cycle,
make sure you:
l Handclean
the areas shown. They do
not get hot enough during the cleaning
cycle for soil to burn away. Use hot water
and detergent or a soapy steel-wool pad
for cleaning.
NOTE: DO NOT clean, move or bend the
seal. Poor cleaning, baking and roasting
may result.

Remove the broiler pan grid and any
pots and pans being stored in the oven.
NOTE: You can clean the broiler pan
(without grid) in the oven if you have first
removed most of the soil by hand-cleaning
or a dishwasher. If most of the soil is not
removed, too much smoking will occur.The
chrome broiler pan grid will discolor if
cleaned in the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This
will help reduce smoke during the cleaning
cycle.
. Remove the oven racks from the oven if
you want them to remain shiny. You can
l
clean the oven racks in the Self-Cleaning
cycle, but they will become harder to slide.
(See page 39.) If you clean racks in the
Self-Cleaning cycle, place them on the 2nd
and 4th rack guides. (Guides are counted
from bottom to top.)
Heat and odors are normal during the Self
Cleaning cycle. Keep the kitchen well
ventilated by opening a window or by
turning on a vent hood or other kitchen
vent during the cycle.
Setting
the controls
1. Make sure the clock is set to the correct
time of day. (See “Setting the clock” on
page 12.1

tips
Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the
Self-Cleaning cycle to help get rid of heat,
odors and smoke.
After the oven is cool, wipe up any
residue or ash with a damp cloth or
sponge. lf any spots remain, clean with a
mild abrasive cleanser or cleaning sponge.
Clean the oven before it gets heavily
soiled. Cleaning a very soiled oven takes
longer and results in more smoke than
usual.
l
if the Self-Cleaning cycle does not get
the oven as clean as you expected, the
cycle may not have been set long enough
or you may not have prepared the oven
properly. Set the Self-Cleaning cycle
longer the next time and hand-clean areas

with the terminal just started into the
receptacle. Push the surface unit terminal
into the receptacle.
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 holddown clip will keep the surface unit from
moving around.
NOTE: Reflector howls reflect heat hack 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 howl or trim ring gets discolored, some of your utensils may not he flat
enough, or some may he 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 howl or
trim ring. This extra heat can discolor ft.

to drop it. Broken glass could cause
injury.
To replace the oven light:
1. Unplug appliance or disconnect at the
main power supply.
2. Remove the glass bulb cover in the back
of the oven by screwing it out counterclockwise.
3. Remove the light bulb from its socket.
Replace the bulb with a 40-watt appliance bulb.
4. Replace the bulb cover by screwing it in
