hours before connecting it to the power supply.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR cooktop
•Know which knob controls each surface heating
unit.
•Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped
with one or more surface units of different sizes. Select
utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the
surface unit. The use of undersized utensils will expose
a portion of surface heating to direct contact and may
result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of
utensil to the surface will also improve efficiency.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward
and Should 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 the utensil
should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and
does not extend over adjacent surface unit.
• Do not use Searing Grill on the cooktop—The
Searing grill is not designed for use on the cooktop.
Doing so may result in a fire.
• Never Leave Surface Units Unattended—Boilovers
cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or
a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line
oven bottom or any other part of the appliance. Only
use aluminum as recommended for baking if used as a
cover placed on the food. Any other used of protective
liners or aluminum foil may result in a risk of electric
shock or fire or a short circuit.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktop service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer’s recommendations for cooktop use.
• Do Not Use Decorative Surface Burner Covers.
If an element is accidentally turned on, the decorative
cover will become hot and possibly melt. Burns will
occur if the hot covers are touched. Damage may also
be done to the cooktop.

Important Safety Instructions
FOR GLASS COOKTOP ONLY
•Do Not Clean or Operate a Broken Cooktop— If
cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers
may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a
risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician
immediately.
•Clean Cooktop Glass with Caution— If a wet
sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking
area, be careful to avoid a steam burn. Some cleaners
can produce harmful fumes if applied to a hot surface.
•Do not place hot cookware on cold cooktop
glass— This cold cause glass to break.
•Avoid Scratching the Cooktop Glass with Sharp
Objects.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR
USING YOUR OVEN
•Use Care When Opening Oven Door—Stand to the
side of the appliance when opening the door/drawer of
a hot appliance. Let hot air or steam escape before you
remove or replace food in the oven/drawer.
•Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven is
vented at the front above the oven door. Touching the
surfaces in this area when the oven is operating may
cause severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heatsensitive items on or near the oven vent. These items
could melt or ignite. WARNING
NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in
the oven bottom or cover an entire rack with
materials such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks
air flow through the oven and may cause carbon
monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may trap
heat, causing a fire hazard.
•Placement of Oven Racks. Always place oven racks
in desired location while appliance is cool. Remove all
utensils from the rack before removing rack. If rack
must be moved while oven is hot, use extreme caution.
Use pot holders and grasp the rack with both hands to
reposition. Do not let pot holders contact the hot oven
element or interior of the oven.
• Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. Broiler
pan and grid allow dripping fat to drain and be kept
away from the high heat of the broiler.
• Do not touch a hot oven light bulb with a damp
cloth. Doing so could cause the bulb to break.
Disconnect the appliance or shut off the power to the
appliance before removing and replacing the bulb.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR
CLEANING YOUR OVEN
•Clean the appliance regularly to keep all parts
free of grease that could catch fire. Exhaust fan
ventilation hoods and grease filters should be kept
clean. Do not allow grease to accumulate. Greasy
deposits in the fan could catch fire. Refer to the hood
manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
•Cleaners/Aerosols—Always follow the manufacturer’s
recommended directions for use. Be aware that excess
residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing
damage and/or injury.
•Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts of
the appliance listed in this Owner’s Guide. Before
using the self-cleaning cycle of the appliance, remove
all utensils stored in the appliance.
•Do not clean the oven door gasket. The door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be
taken not to rub, damage or move the gasket.
•Do not use oven cleaners. No oven cleaner or oven
liner protective coating of any kind should be used in or
around any part of the appliance.
•Remove oven racks. Oven racks color will change if
left in the oven during a self-cleaning cycle.
CAUTION
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off during the self-clean cycle of any wall
oven. Move birds to another well ventilated room.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic
Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California
to publish a list of substances known to the state to

BEFORE Setting surface controls
About the ceramic glass cooktop
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements
located below the surface of the glass. The design of the
ceramic cooktop outlines the area of the surface element
underneath. Be sure to match the pan size with the
diameter of the element outline on the cooktop and only
flat-bottom cookware should be used.
The hot surface indicator light located on the cooktop
(Figure 2) will glow when any surface cooking area heats
up and will remain on until the glass cooktop has cooled
to a MODERATE level.
The type and size of cookware, the number of surface
elements in use and their settings, are all factors that
will affect the amount of heat that will spread to areas
beyond the surface elements. The areas surrounding the
elements may become hot enough to cause burns.
About the radiant surface elements
The element temperature rises gradually and evenly.
As the temperature rises, the 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.
Element ON & hot surface indicator lights
Your appliance is equipped with two different types of
radiant surface control indicator lights that will glow on
the backguard- the Element On indicator light and the
hot surface indicator lights.
The element ON indicator lights are located on the
control panel (Figure 1) between the two radiant element
control knob and will glow when a surface element is
turned ON.

light location.
Figure 2
Hot surface indicator
light location.
 NOTE
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 glass 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.
Be sure to read detailed instructions for ceramic glass
cooktop cleaning in the General Care & Cleaning
section and Before You Call checklist section of this
Use and Care Guide.
Surface Cooking Settings
Use the chart to determine the correct setting for the
kind of food you are preparing. The Simmer settings are
used to simmer and keep larger quantities of foods warm
such as stews and soups. The lower Simmer settings are
ideal for delicate foods and melting chocolate or butter.
Note: The size and type of cookware used will influence
the setting needed for best cooking results.
Recommended Settings for Surface Elements
Figure 1

BEFORE Setting surface controls
Using proper cookware
Cookware material types
Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good
contact with the entire surface heating element (Figure
1). Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the
bottom of the cookware (Figure 2).
Aluminum- Excellent heat conductor. Some types
of food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum
cookware resists staining & pitting). If aluminum pans
slide across the ceramic glass cooktop, they may leave
metal marks which will resemble scratches. Remove
these marks immediately.
The size and type of cookware used will influence the
setting needed for best cooking results. Be sure to follow
the recommendations for using proper cookware as
illustrated in Figures 1 & 2.
The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly
heat is transferred from the surface element to the pan
bottom. The most popular materials available are:
Copper- Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily. May
leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see Aluminum above).
Stainless steel- Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking
results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
Cast iron- A poor heat conductor however will retain
heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is
reached. Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.
Porcelain-enamel on metal- 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.

Bridge surface radiant element
The cooktop is equipped with a “BRIDGE” surface element
located at the left front and middle (Figure 1) positions. The
Bridge can be used when cooking with rectangular (like a
griddle) or oval shaped cookware. The element will maintain
an even temperature setting across both portions of the
Bridge. If needed for normal cookware, the Bridge element
can work like a single element without the Bridge (Figure 4).
The symbol indicates that only the front portion will heat
(Figures 2 & 4). The symbol indicates that both front and

Keep warm zone
The purpose of the warmer zone is to keep hot cooked
foods at serving temperature. Use the warmer zone to
keep cooked foods hot such as: vegetables, gravies,
casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and oven-safe
dinner plates. Always start with hot food. Do not heat
cold food on the warmer zone.
All food placed on the warmer zone should be covered
with a lid or aluminum foil. When warming pastries
or breads, the cover should have an opening to allow
moisture to escape.
For best results, when warming pastries or breads,
the cover should have an opening to allow moisture
to escape. Do not use plastic wrap to cover food.
Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very
difficult to clean. Use only plates, utensils and
cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use on the
keep warm zone.
To Set the Warmer Zone Control
NOTE: The control and indicator light are located on the
control panel.
1.To set the control, push in and turn the knob (Figure

will remain warm until the hot surface indicator light
goes off.
CAUTION
The keep warm zone will not glow red when it is hot,
but becomes hot enough to cause burns. Avoid placing
hands on or near the keep warm zone until the keep
warm zone hot surface indicator light is OFF.
Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing
food from the keep warm zone as cookware and plates
will be hot.
CAUTION
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper
shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or
ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could catch
fire if placed too close to the surface elements.

CAUTION
Some models are equipped with a blower
which runs in baking and self-cleaning mode
to keep all internal components at a cool
temperature. The blower may keep running
even if the oven has been turned off, until the
components have cooled down.
Air circulation in the oven
If using 1 rack (Figure 2), place in center of oven. If using
multiple racks (Figure 3), stagger cookware as shown.
For best air circulation and baking results allow 2-4"
(5-10 cm) around the cookware for proper air circulation
and be sure pans and cookware do not touch each other,

Convection Baking Tips:
• When using convection bake, adjust the cook time
for desired doneness as needed. Time reductions will
vary depending on the amount and type of food to be
cooked. Cookies and biscuits should be baked on pans
with no sides or very low sides to allow heated air to
circulate around the food. Food baked on pans with a
dark finish will cook faster.
• Preheating is not necessary when cooking casseroles
with convection bake.
• When using convection bake with a single rack, place
oven rack in position 2 or 3. If cooking on multiple racks,
place the oven racks in positions 2 and 4 (Figure 1).
To set the oven for Convection Bake and
temperature to 375°F

Setting Convection Bake
The CONVECT BAKE pad controls the convection bake
feature. The oven can be programmed for Convection
baking at any temperature between 170°F to 550°F with
a default temperature of 350°F.
Convection baking uses a fan to circulate the oven’s heat
evenly and continuously within the oven. This improved
heat distribution allows for even cooking and excellent
results using multiple racks at the same time. Foods
cooked on a single oven rack will generally cook faster
and more evenly with convection bake. Multiple oven rack
cooking may slightly increase cook time for some foods,
but the overall result is time saved. Breads and pastries
brown more evenly.

Benefits of Convection Bake:
— Multiple rack baking.
— Some foods cook faster, saving time and energy.
— No special pans or bakeware needed.
 NOTE

Setting MAIN OVEN controls
Setting Convection Roast
The CONVECT ROAST pad is designed to give optimum
cooking performance for this feature. The oven can be
programmed for Convection Roasting at any temperature
between 170°F to 550°F with a default temperature of
350°F. The convection roast feature combines a cook
cycle with the convection fan and element to roast meats
and poultry. Preheating is not necessary for meats and
poultry. Heated air circulates around the food from all
sides, sealing in juices and flavors. Foods are crispy
brown on the outside while staying moist on the inside.
Convection Roasting Tips:
• Use a broiler pan and grid, and a roasting rack (available by mail order). The broiler pan will catch grease
spills and the grid will help prevent spatters. The roasting rack will hold the meat.
• Place an oven rack on rack position 1 (see Figure 1).
• No preheat is needed in convection roast.
• Make sure the roasting rack is securely seated on the
grid in the broiler pan (available by mail order only).
The roasting rack fits on the grid allowing the heated
air to circulate under the food for even cooking and
helps to increase browning on the underside.
• There is no need to reduce the convection temperature
or to use the Convection Convert feature with this
cooking mode.
• DO NOT use the broiler pan (available by mail order)
without the grid or cover the grid with aluminum foil.
• Always pull the rack out to the stop position before
removing food.
• Position food (fat side up) on the roasting rack.
Setting Convection CONVERT
The Convect Convert pad is used to automatically
convert a standard baking recipe for convection baking.
When set properly, this feature is designed to display the
actual converted (reduced) temperature in the display.
Convection Convert may ONLY be used with a Convection
Bake setting. When used with the Bake Time or a Delay
Start features, “CF” (check food) will be displayed when
75% of the bake time complete. At this time the oven
control will sound 3 long beeps at regular intervals until
baking had finished. When the bake time has completely
finished the control will display “End” and beep at
regular interval until the CANCEL pad is pressed.
To change from a normal bake recipe to a
convection bake recipe (example: changing a
400°F normal bake recipe to a convection bake
recipe:
When the CONVECT BAKE mode is on at 400°F, press
CONVECT CONVERT. “CONV BAKE” and the oven
temperature adjustment will appear in the display (for
this example it is 375°F). A beep will sound once the

cancelled. This will override the factory preset 12-Hour
Energy Saving feature.
If the oven lights are needed during the Sabbath, press
before activating the Sabbath feature. Once the oven light
is turned ON and the Sabbath feature is active, the oven
light will remain ON until the Sabbath feature is turned OFF.
If the oven lights need to be OFF, be sure to turn the oven
lights OFF before activating the Sabbath feature.
IMPORTANT
It is not advised to attempt to activate any other program
feature other than BAKE while the Sabbath feature is
active. ONLY the following key pads will function after
setting the Sabbath feature; 0 to 9, BAKE, START &
CANCEL. All other keypads should not be used once
the Sabbath feature is properly activated.
To Program the Oven to Begin Baking Immediately

Self-cleaning
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures
(well above normal cooking temperatures) which
eliminate soils completely or reduces them to a fine
powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.
DO HAND
CLEAN FRAME
IMPORTANT
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
• Allow the oven to cool before cleaning.
• Wear rubber gloves when cleaning any exterior parts
of the oven manually.
• DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective
coatings in or around any part of the oven interior.
• DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The woven
material of the oven door gasket is essential for a
good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage
or remove the gasket.
• DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the oven
door gasket. Doing so could cause damage.
• Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils
and any aluminum foil. These items cannot
withstand high cleaning temperatures and will melt.
• Completely remove ALL OVEN RACKS and
ANY ACCESSORIES. If the oven racks are not

What to Expect during Cleaning
While the oven is in operation, the oven heats to
temperatures much higher than those used in normal
cooking. Sounds of metal expansion and contraction
are normal. Odor is also normal as the food soil is being
removed. Smoke may appear through the oven vent.
If heavy spillovers are not wiped up before cleaning, they
may flame and cause more smoke and odor than usual.
This is normal and safe and should not cause alarm. If
available, use an exhaust fan during the self-cleaning cycle.
• Remove any excessive spillovers in the oven
cavity before starting the Self-Cleaning cycle. To
clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large
spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when
subjected to high temperatures. DO NOT allow food
spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk,
tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to
remain on the surface as they may leave a dull spot
even after cleaning.
To avoid possible burns use care when opening the
oven door after the Self-Cleaning cycle. Stand to the
side of the oven when opening the door to allow hot air
or steam to escape.
• Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door liner
outside the oven door gasket and the small area at
the front center of the oven bottom. These areas heat
sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water.
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off during the Self-Cleaning cycle of any
range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.
 NOTE
See additional cleaning information for the oven door in
the General Care & Cleaning section.
CAUTION
During the Self-Cleaning cycle, the outside of the range
can become very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave
small children unattended near the appliance.
DO NOT line the oven walls, racks, bottom or any
other part of the range with aluminum foil. Doing
so will destroy 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 caution when
opening the door after the Self-Cleaning cycle is
completed. The oven may still be VERY HOT.

Care & Cleaning
Porcelain enamel oven Cleaning
(auxiliary oven)
IMPORTANT
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
• Allow the oven to cool before cleaning.
• Wear rubber gloves when cleaning the appliance
manually.
Remove spillovers and heavy soils as soon as possible. Regular cleanings will reduce the number of
future major cleanings.
CAUTION
Ammonia must be rinsed before operating the
oven. Provide adequate ventilation.
Porcelain has a smooth finish and is a type of glass fused
to metal. Oven cleaners can be used on all interior oven
surfaces.
General Cleaning
Remove soils using hot, soapy water. Do not allow food
spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk,
tomatoes, saukerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain
on the surface as they may cause a dull spot even after
cleaning.
To Remove Heavy Soil
1. Allow a dish of ammonia to sit in the oven overnight
or for several hours with the oven door closed. Clean
softened spots using hot, soapy water. Rinse well
with water and a clean cloth.
2. If soil remains, use a soap-filled scouring pad or a

following manufacturer’s instructions. DO NOT mix
ammonia with other cleaners.
28
Adhere to the following precautions when
using oven cleaners:
1. DO NOT spray on the electrical controls or switches
because it could cause a short circuit and result in
sparking or fire.
2. DO NOT allow a film from the cleaner to build up on
the temperature sensing bulb located at the top left
rear corner of the oven; it could cause the oven to
heat improperly. Carefully wipe the bulb clean after
each oven cleaning, being careful not to move the
bulb. A change in its position could affect how the
oven bakes. Avoid bending the bulb and capillary
tube.
3. DO NOT spray any cleaner on the oven door trim or
gasket, handles or any exterior surfaces of the range,
wood or painted surfaces. The cleaner can damage
these surfaces.
To Clean the Oven Bottom

soap-filled abrasive pad or oven cleaner following oven
cleaner manufacturer’s instructions.
CAUTION
DO NOT line the oven walls, bottom, racks or any other
part of the appliance with aluminum foil. Doing so will
destroy 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).
Care & Cleaning
Ceramic glass cooktop cleaning &
maintenance
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to
maintaining your Ceramic glass cooktop.
Prior to using your cooktop for the
first time, apply the recommended
CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Creme to
the ceramic surface. Clean and buff
with a non abrasive cloth or pad. This
will make cleaning easier when soiled
from cooking. The special cooktop
cleaning cream leaves a protective
finish on the glass to help prevent
scratches and abrasions.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad
bottom pans on the cooktop can
cause metal markings on the cooktop surface. These
marks should be removed immediately after the
cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning cream.
Metal marks can become permanent if not removed prior
to future use.
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough
bottoms can mark or scratch the cooktop surface. Do
not slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop.
Do not use your cooktop as a cutting board or work
surface in the kitchen. Do not cook foods directly on the
cooktop surface without a pan. Do not drop heavy or
hard objects on the glass cooktop, or they may crack it.
Cleaning recommendations for the
ceramic glass cooktop
CAUTION
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are
turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
WARNING
DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop.
The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and can
chemically damage the ceramic glass surface.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly
to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a nonabrasive plastic type no-scratch pad to clean the
entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned
thoroughly, leaving no residue.
For heavy, burned on soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly
to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a nonabrasive plastic type no-scratch pad, applying pressure
as needed. Do not use the pad you use to clean the
cooktop for any other purpose.
IMPORTANT
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you
use an abrasive type scratch pad. Only use cleaning
products that have been specifically designed for
ceramic glass cooktop.
If soils remain, carefully scrape soils with a metal razor
blade scraper, holding scraper at a 30 degree angle to the
surface. Remove loosened soils, then apply a few drops
of cleaning cream and buff surface clean.
29
Care & Cleaning
Cleaning recommendations for the
ceramic glass cooktop (continued)
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled
or melted onto the ceramic cooktop surface. Permanent
damage (such as pitting of the cooktop surface) may occur
if not removed immediately. After turning the surface
elements OFF, use a razor blade scraper or a metal spatula
with a mitt and scrape the soil from the hot surface (as
illustrated). Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same
method for heavy or burned on soils.
Do not use the following on the ceramic glass
cooktop:
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads,
such as metal and some nylon pads. They may
scratch the cooktop, making it more difficult to
clean.
• Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine
bleach, ammonia or oven cleaners, as they may
etch or discolor the cooktop.
• Do not use dirty
sponges, cloths
or paper towels,
as they can leave
soil or lint on the
cooktop which
can burn and
cause Special
Caution for
Aluminum Foil
and Aluminum
Cooking Utensils
• Aluminum foil
Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not
use under any circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils
Since the melting point of aluminum is much lower
than that of other metals, care must be taken when
aluminum pots or pans are used. Pans that boil dry
may permanently damage cooktop by breaking, fusing
to, or marking it.
Care and cleaning of stainless steel
Some models are equipped with stainless steel exterior
parts. Special care and cleaning are required for
maintaining the appearance of stainless parts. Refer
to the General Care & Cleaning table for detailed
cleaning instructions.

before you call (Solutions to Common Problems)
IMPORTANT
Before you call for service, review this list. It may save you time and expense. The list includes common
occurrences that are not the result of defective workmanship or materials in this appliance.
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION
Range is not level.
Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven rack. Adjust
leveling legs at base of range until the rack is level. When range is level, cooktop may
appear out of alignment if countertop is not level.
Weak, unstable floor. Be sure floor is level and can adequately support range. If floor is
sagging or slopping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
Kitchen cabinet misalignment may make range appear to be unlevel. Be sure cabinets are
square and have sufficient room for range clearance.
Cannot move
appliance easily. Appliance must
be accessible for
service.
Cabinets not square or are built in too tight. Contact a cabinet maker to correct the problem.
Contact builder or installer to make appliance accessible.
Carpet interferes with range. Provide sufficient space so range can be lifted over carpet.
Entire range or oven Make sure cord/plug is plugged tightly into outlet.

this Before you Call checklist.
Electrical power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric company for service.
Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface unit to be used.
Surface units too
hot or not hot
enough.
Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface unit to be used.
Metalmarks.
Sliding or scraping of metal utensils on cooktop surface. Do not slide metal utensils on
cooktop surface. Use a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning cream to remove the marks.
"Cooktop Cleaning - Ceramic Glass Cooktop Models" section under General Cleaning.
Scratches or
abrasions on
cooktop surface.
Coarse particles such as salt or sand between cooktop and utensils can cause scratches. Be
sure cooktop surface and bottoms of utensils are clean before usage. Small scratches do not
affect cooking and will become less visible with time.
Lightweight or warped pans used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or heavyweight
cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped pans. Cookware materials and weight of the
material affect heating. Heavy-and medium- weight pans heat evenly. Because lightweight
pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily.
Cleaning materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been used. See
"Cooktop Cleaning - Ceramic Glass Cooktop Models" section under General Cleaning.
Cookware with rough bottom has been used. Use smooth, flat-bottomed cookware.
Brown streaks or
specks.
