anyone unable to operate it properly.
l Properly maintaining
the range.
l Using the range only for jobs expected of a home range.
l Making sure the range is secured by
properly installed anti-tip bracket. The
bracket must overlap the range base.
ImportantSafetyInstructions
Gas ranges have been thoroughly tested for safe and efficient operation. However,
as with any appliance, there are specific installation and safety precautions which
must be followed to ensure safe and satisfactory operation.
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury
to persons, or damage when using the range,
follow basic precautions, including the following:
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.
l
l FOR YOUR SAFETY l
IF YOU SMELL GAS:
1. OPEN WINDOWS.
2. DON’T TOUCH ELECTRICAL SWITCHES.
3. EXTINGUISH ANY OPEN FLAMES.
4. IMMEDIATELY CALL YOUR GAS SUPPLIER.
IMPROPER INSTALLATION, ADJUSTMENT,
ALTERATION, SERVICE OR MAINTENANCE CAN
CAUSE INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE. REFER
TO THIS MANUAL. FOR ASSISTANCE OR
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION CONSULT A
QUALIFIED INSTALLER, SERVICE AGENCY,
MANUFACTURER (DEALER) OR THE GAS
SUPPLIER.
- IMPORTANT TO THE INSTALLER: PLEASE LEAVE THIS
INSTRUCTION BOOK WITH THE UNIT.
TO THE CONSUMER: PLEASE READ AND KEEP
THIS BOOK FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
Important Safety Instructions
Continued
. 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 the proper gas supply
and checked for leaks. The range
must also be properly connected to
electrical supply and grounded.
Do not attempt to light the oven
burner during a power failure.
Personal injury could result.
l Use the range only for its intended
use as described in this manual.
l Do not wear loose or hanging
garments when using the range.
They could ignite if they touch a hot
surface burner and you could be
burned.
9 Do not touch surface burners, areas
near burners or interior surfaces of
oven. Areas near surface burners
and rntenor surfaces of an oven
become hot enough to cause burns.
l
&3iliiu
-a Duri~gu~e
To reduce the risk of tipping of the
appliance, the appliance must be
secured by properly installed antitip bracket. To check if the
bracket is installed properly, shine
a flashlight under range toward
rear corners and verify that the
anti-tip bracket is engaged. See
Installation Instructions for further
details.
. Gas fuels and combustion can
result in potential exposure to
chemicals known to cause cancer
or reproductive harm. For example,
benzene is a chemical which is a
part of the gas supplied to the
range. It is consumed in the flame
during combustion. However,
exposure to a small amount of
benzene is possible if a gas leak
occurs. Formaldehyde, carbon
monoxide and soot are by-products
of incomplete combustion. Properly
adjusted burners with a bluish
rather than a yellow flame will
minimize incomplete combustion.
9 Do not operate the range if it is not
working properly, or if it has been
damaged.
l Do not use the range for warming
or heating the room. Persons could
be burned or injured, or a fire could
start.
l

l
l
l
clothing or other flammable
materials contact surface burners,
areas near surface burners or
interior surfaces of oven. 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, and the oven door.
Make sure the utensils you use are
large enough to contain food and
avoid boil-overs and spill-overs.
Heavy splattering or spill-overs left
on a range can ignite and burn you.
Pan size is especially important in
deep fat frying.
Turn pan handles inward, but not
over other surface burners. This will
help reduce the chance of burns,
igniting of flammable materials, and
spills due to bumping of the pan.
Use only dry potholders. Moist or
damp potholders on surface burners
may result in burns from steam. Do
not let potholder touch surface
burners. Do not use a towel or bulky
cloth for a potholder. They could
catch on fire.
Check to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe for use on the
range. Only certain types of glass,
glass-ceramic, ceramic, earthenware or other glazed utensils are
suitable for ranges without
breaking due to the sudden
change in temperature.
l Do not use decorative
covers or
trivets over the surface burners.
l Do not heat unopened
containers.
They could explode. The hot
contents could cause burns and
container particles could cause
injury.
l Grease is flammable
and should
be handled carefully. Let fat cool
before attempting to handle it. Do
not allow grease to collect around
cooktop or in vents. Wipe spillovers immediately.
l Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flaming pan on range 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 extin-.
guisher.
. Never leave surface burners
unattended at high heat settings. A
boil-over could result and cause
smoking and greasy spill-overs
that may ignite.
l Make sure surface burners are off
when you are finished, and when
you are not watching.
l Use care when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing food.
l Always position oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool.
l
Do not store flammable materials
on or near the range. They could
explode or burn.
l Do not store things children might
want above the range. Children
could be burned or injured while
climbing on it.
. 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 Never use a match or other flame
to look for a gas leak. Explosion
and injury could result.
l Know where your main gas shut
off valve is located.
l Keep range vents unobstructed.
l Clean your range regularly. See
care and cleaning instructions in
this manual.
l Be sure all range parts are cool
before cleaning.
l Do not clean door heat 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.
l Do not use oven cleaners on
continuous-cleaning ovens. No
commercial oven cleaner or oven
liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any
part of the oven.
l Do not repair or replace any part of
the range unless specifically
recommended in this manual. All
other servicing should be referred
to a qualified technician.
l Disconnect
the electrical supply
before servicing the range.

Using the surface burners
Surface burner
marker
Your range is equipped with either
standing pilots or electronic ignitors.
Standing pilots must be lit initially with
a match following the directions on
page 7. The pilot light will remain lit
when the burners are turned off. To turn
a burner on again, just push in and turn
the control knob to LITE and the burner
will light. Electronic ignitors automatically light the burners each time the
control knob is turned to LITE.
Control knobs must be pushed in,
then turned to the LITE position. On
electronic ignitor models, the clicking
sound is the ignition sparking.
To stop the clicking sound after the
burner lights, turn the control knob back
to a desired setting. The control knob
can be set anywhere between HI and
OFF.
Surface burner markers
The solid dot in the surface burner
marker shows which surface burner is
turned on by that knob.
Usa a medium setting to continue
cooking or to fry chicken or pancakes;
for gravy, puddings and icing; to cook
large amounts of vegetables.
Use a low setting to keep food warm
until ready to serve.
NOTE: Do not cook with the control in
the LITE position.
In case of a prolonged power failure
Surface burners with electronic ignitors
can be manually lighted. Hold a lighted
match near a burner and slowly turn the
control knob on until the burner lights.
After the burner lights, turn the control
knob to the desired setting. Power
failures will not affect standing pilots.

the
oven as the recipe calls for?
l Does the flame size fit the cooking
utensil being used? (See the Cooking
Guide.)
l Are you following a tested recipe from
a reliable source?
l Are you using pans recommended
in
the Cooking Guide?
l If baking, have you allowed 1 l/2 to 2
inches (4-5 cm) on all sides of the
pans for air circulation?
l Are the pans the size called for in the
recipe?
