features of your new range
Enhanced convenience. Better cooking. Easy maintenance. Your new electric range has been designed to
bring you these benefits and more.
• The latest in heat-distribution technology
Other ranges with just one fan tend to make a swirl of heat that fails to cover the whole inside of
the oven. This means uneven heat distribution and uneven cooking. Your new range has Surround
Airvection™, which Samsung enhanced by adding a third heating element and a multi-fan system
that circulates the heat evenly in all directions. You get more efficient energy consumption and
more even cooking.
• Steam Quick cleaning
Thanks to Steam Quick™, Samsung’s unique technology for light-duty cleaning jobs, keeping
your oven spick-and-span is a snap — no hassle, no odor, no chemicals. Steam Quick™ cleans
the inside of your range with high-temperature steam in just 20 minutes.
• Bigger is better
With a capacity of 5.9 cubic feet, your new range is equipped with more space than any of its
competitors in the U.S. market. This means greater convenience for you when cooking for the
holidays or when entertaining.
• A cooktop with 5 burners
- Four main burners with two that dial heat up to different pot sizes.
- A smaller warming burner in the center of the range top.

The purpose of the warming drawer is to hold hot cooked foods at
serving temperature. Always start with hot food; cold food cannot be
heated or cooked in the warming drawer.
Use care when opening the drawer. Open the drawer a crack and
let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food. Hot air or
steam which escapes can cause burns to hands, face and/or eyes.
Do not use the drawer to dry newspapers. If overheated, they can
catch on fire.
Do not use aluminum foil to line the drawer. Foil is an excellent heat
insulator and will trap heat beneath it. This will upset the performance of
the drawer and it could damage the interior finish.
Do not leave paper products, plastics, canned food or combustible
materials in the drawer.
Never leave jars or cans of fat drippings in or near your drawer.
Do not warm food in the drawer for more than three hours.
SELF-CLEANING OVENS
Do not clean the door gasket. The door gasket is essential for a good
seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the gasket.
Never keep pet birds in the kitchen. Birds are extremely sensitive
to the fumes released during an oven self-clean cycle. Fumes may be
harmful or fatal to birds. Move birds to a well-ventilated room.
Clean only the parts listed in this manual in the self-clean cycle.
Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the partition, rack, utensils, and
food.
Do not use any commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating
of any kind in or on the outside of the oven. Use only a ceramic cooktop
cleaner.
Important safety instructions _8

power supply. Have it serviced by a qualified technician.
Excess spillage must be removed before cleaning and shall specify which
utensils can be left in the oven during cleaning.
VENTILATING HOOD
Clean ventilating hoods frequently. Do not let grease accumulate on
the hood or filter.
When flaming foods under the hood, turn the fan on.
GLASS/CERAMIC COOKING SURFACES
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 or other flammable materials contact the
surface units or areas near the units until they have had sufficient time to
cool. Among these areas are the cook-top and the facing of the cooktop.
Do not cook on a broken cooktop. If the cooktop should break,
cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cook-top and
create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet sponge or cloth is used to
wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to avoid steam burn. Some
cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Clean the oven thoroughly before using for the first time. Remove
the accessories and operate the oven at the bake setting of 400 °F for 1
hour before using. There will be a distinctive odor. This is normal. Ensure
your kitchen is well ventilated during this conditioning period.

• Do not use the glass cooktop surface as a cutting board.
• Turn the surface units on only after placing the cookware on them.
• Do not store heavy items above the cooktop surface. They could fall and damage it.
DURING COOKING
• 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.
SURFACE COOKING
• Do not place or store items that can melt or catch fire on the glass cooktop, even
when it is not being used.
• 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 greasy spillovers 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
• 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.

Hot surface indicator
• Comes on when the unit is turned on or hot to the touch.
• Stays on even after the unit is turned off.
• Glows until the unit is cooled to approximately 150°F.
Cooking areas
• The cooking areas on your range are identified by permanent circles on the glass cooking
surface. For the most efficient cooking, fit the pan size to the element size.
• Pans should not extend more than ½” to 1” beyond the cooking area.
• When a control is turned on, a glow can be seen through the glass cooking surface. The
element will cycle on and off to maintain the preset heat setting, even at high settings.
• For more information on selecting proper types of cookware, refer to the section “Using the
proper cookware” on page 23.

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.
• 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.
• 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.
SURFACE COOKING
• When warming pastries and breads, the cover should have an opening to allow
moisture to escape.
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.

USING THE PROPER COOKWARE
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
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.
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 as soon as the cooktop cools down.
• COPPER - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily. May leave metal marks on ceramic
glass (see above).
• 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. Porcelainenamel 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, 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 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. It 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.
SURFACE COOKING
• Do not use abrasive cleansing powders or scouring pads, which will 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 can 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 use the cooktop as a work surface or cutting board.
• Do not cook food directly on the cooktop. Always use the proper cookware.

using the warming drawer
ABOUT THE WARMING DRAWER
The warming drawer will keep hot,
cooked foods warm. Always start with hot
food. Do not use to warm cold food other
than bread, crisping crackers, chips or dry
cereal.
Allow approximately 25 minutes for the
warming drawer to preheat.
• Do not line the warming drawer or pan with aluminum foil. Foil is an excellent heat
insulator and will trap heat beneath it. This will upset the performance of the drawer
and could damage the interior finish.
• Do not put liquid or water in the warming drawer.
• All foods placed in the warming drawer should be covered with a lid. When warming pastries or
breads, the cover should be vented to allow moisture to escape.
• Remove serving spoons, etc., before placing containers in the warming drawer.
• Food should be kept hot in its cooking container or transferred to a heat-safe serving dish.
Plastic containers or plastic wrap will melt if in direct contact with the drawer, pan or a
hot utensil. Melted plastic may not be removable and is not covered under your warranty.

6
By using the convection bake feature, you will be able
to cook faster. You can program the oven for convection
baking at any temperature between 150°F and 550°F.
5
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
2
results using multiple racks at the same time. Foods
1
cooked on a single oven rack will generally cook faster
and more evenly with convection baking. Multiple oven
rack cooking may slightly increase cook times for some foods, but the overall result is time saved.
Breads and pastries brown more evenly.
4
3
The amount of time you save will vary depending on the amount and type of food you are
cooking. When baking cookies or biscuits, you should use pans with no sides or very low sides
to allow the heated air to circulate around the food. Using a pan with a dark finish will allow faster
cooking times.
When using convection baking with a single rack, place the oven rack in position 4. If cooking on
multiple racks, place the oven racks in positions 2 and 5 or 3, and 6.

CONVECTION ROASTING
Convection roasting is good for cooking large tender cuts of meat, uncovered.
Heat comes from the top heating element. The convection fan circulates the heated air evenly
over and around the food. Meat and poultry are browned on all sides as if they were cooked on a
rotisserie. The heated air seals in juices quickly for a moist and tender product while, at the same
time, creating a rich golden brown exterior.

SELF-CLEANING
This 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.
• Some birds can be sickened by the fumes given off during the self-cleaning 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 and
adhere 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
MAINTAINING YOUR APPLIANCE
• During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the range will become very hot to the
touch. Do not leave small children unattended near the appliance.
• 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.
Fig. 2
Don’t hand
clean the
oven door
gasket.
You may
hand clean
the door.
• 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
For light cleaning, the Steam-cleaning function saves time and energy. 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.
MAINTAINING YOUR APPLIANCE
3. Press the STEAM CLEAN pad.
4. Press the START/SET 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. If you fail to reengage the Anti-Tip device, the range could tip and
cause serous injury.
Oven vent
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.
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.

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 cloth containing a small amount of oil. This will help the
racks glide more easily into their tracks.

glass cleaner on the outside glass of the oven door. DO
NOT immerse the door in water. DO NOT spray or
allow water or the glass cleaner to enter the door
vents. DO NOT use oven cleaners, cleaning powders,
or any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the outside
of the oven door.
• DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The oven

CARE AND CLEANING OF THE GLASS COOKTOP
Normal daily use cleaning
Use only a ceramic cooktop cleaner. 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.
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.
Removing heavy, burned-on residue
1. Allow the cooktop to cool.
2. Use a 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.

Removing metal marks and scratches
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 with a cleaning
pad for ceramic cooktops.
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.
Carefully check the bottoms of pans for roughness that may scratch the cooktop.
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
Cleaning the cooktop seal
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 indentations in the glass surface have already occurred, the cooktop glass will
have to be replaced. In this case, service will be necessary.
