SAFETY
●
When cooking pork, follow the directions exactly
and always cook the meat to an internal temperature
of at least 170°F. This assures that, in the remote
possibility that trichina may be present in the meat,
it will be killed and the meat will be safe to eat.
Oven
Stand away from the range when opening the
oven door. Hot air or steam which escapes can
cause burns to hands, face and/or eyes.
Do not heat unopened food containers.
Pressure could build up and the container
could burst, causing an injury.
Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
c Place the oven shelf in the desired position
while the oven is cool. If the shelves must be
handled when hot, do not let potholders contact
the heating units in the oven.
●
●
●
●
●
●
Pulling out the shelf to the shelf stop is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also a
precaution against burns from touching hot
surfaces of the door or oven walls.
Do not use your oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch fire.
Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in an oven can ignite.
Do not leave paper products, cooking utensils,
or food in the oven when not in use.
After broiling, always take the broiler pan out of
the range and clean it. Leftover grease in the broiler
pan can catch fire the next time you use the pan.
Never leave jars or cans of fat drippings on or
near your range.
Self-Cleaning Oven
●
●
●
●
●
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 commercial oven —
cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any part of the oven.
Residue from oven cleaners will damage the inside
of the oven when the self-clean cycle is used
Clean only parts listed in this Use and Care Book.
If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions, turn off
and disconnect power supply. Have serviced by
a qualified technician.
Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the
broiler pan and other cookware. Do not selfclean the modules in the oven.
●
●
Be sure to wipe up excess spillage before
starting the Self-Clean operation.

●
Use proper pan size-This appliance has modules
each equipped with a 6 inch and an 8 inch heating
element. Select cookware having flat bottoms large
enough to cover the selected heating element. The
use of undersized cookware will expose a portion of
the heating element to direct contact and may result
in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of
cookware to burner will also improve efficiency.
Never leave the kitchen while using the grill.
NEVER USE WATER ON A GREASE FIRE.
—
.
,ever leave the modules unattended at high
heat settings. Boilover causes smoking and
greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
●
●
●
●
Be sure drip pans and the vent grills are not
covered and are in place. Their absence during
cooking could damage range parts and wiring.
Do not use aluminum foil to line the drip pans
or anywhere in the oven except as described in
this book. Misuse could result in a shock, fire
hazard or damage to the range.
Only certain types of glass, glasskeramic,
earthenware or other glazed containers are
suitable for cooktop service; others may break
because of the sudden change in temperature. See
section on Surface Cooking for suggestions.
To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition of
flammable materials, and spillage, the handle of a
container should be turned toward the center of the
range without extending over nearby elements.
Always turn module control to OFF before
removing cookware.
—
‘o avoid the possibility of a burn or electric
.nock, always be certain that the controls for
all elements are at OFF position and all elements
are cool before attempting to remove the unit.
●
●
Never clean the cooktop surface when it is hot.
Some cleaners produce noxious fumes and wet cloths
could cause steam burns if used on a hot surface.
●
●
●
●
Keep an eye on foods being fried at HI or
MEDIUM HIGH heat settings.
Do not immerse or soak removable modules.
Do not put them in a dishwasher. Do not selfclean the modules in the oven.
When flaming foods are under the hood, turn
the fan off. The fan, if operating, may spread
the flame.
Foods for frying should be as dry as possible.
Frost on frozen foods or moisture on fresh foods
can cause hot fat to bubble up and over sides of pan.
c Use little fat for effective shallow or deep-fat
frying. Filling the pan too full of fat can cause
spillovers when food is added.
●
●
If a combination of oils or fats will be used
in frying, stir together before heating, or as fats
melt slowly.
Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
c Use deep fat thermometer whenever possible to
prevent overheating fat beyond the smoking point.
●
Never try to move a pan of hot fat, especially a
deep fat fryer. Wait until the fat is cool.

Installing the Range
Leveling the Range
Your range, like many other household items, is
heavy and can settle into soft floor coverings such
Use a 1%” open end or adjustable wrench to equally
back out the four legs. The flanges (rims) below the
sides of the maintop must be raised above the top of
the counter. Carefully slide the range into its
installation space. Observe that it is clearing the
countertop. Then place a spirit level or a glass
measuring cup partially filled with water on one of the
oven shelves to check for levelness. If using a spirit
level, take two readings, with the level placed
diagonally first in one direction and then the other.
Adjust the four legs carefully. You will need to
remove the grease jars to adjust the rear legs. The
range legs should rest on the floor. The range must
not hang from the counter.

COOKING
TIPS
ookware
●
●
Use medium-or heavy-weight cookware. Aluminum
cookware conducts heat faster than other metals.
Cast-iron and coated cast-iron cookware are slow to
absorb heat, but generally cook evenly at low to
medium heat settings. Steel pans may cook unevenly
if not combined with other metals.
For best cooking results pans should be flat on the
bottom. Match the size of the saucepan to the size of
the module element. The pan should not extend over
the edge of the trim ring more than 1 inch.
Right
Wrong
Deep Fat Frying
Do not overfill cookware with fat that may spill over when adding food.
Frosty foods bubble vigorously. Watch food frying at high temperatures.
Keep range and hood clean from grease.
Wok Cooking
--ok.
They are available
‘zr;~::::~;:;;:i~

Do not use woks that have
support rings. Use of these
typeofwok~withorwithot
the ring in place, can be
dangerous. Placing the ring
over the surface unit will
cause a build-up of heat that will damage the
porcelain cooktop. Do not try to use such woks
without the ring. You could be seriously burned
if the wok tipped over.

HOME
CANNING
Canning should be done on the open coil, solid disk
element or radiant modules only. Do not use the
grill or griddle.
Pots that extend beyond 1 inch of the element’s
diameter are not recommended for most surface
cooking. However, when canning with water-bath or
pressure canner, larger-diameter pots may be used.
This is because boiling water temperatures (even
under pressure) are not harmful to cooktop surfaces
surrounding the modules.
TIPS
HOWEVER, DO NOT USE LARGE DIAMETER
CANNERS OR OTHER LARGE DIAMETER
POTS FOR FRYING OR BOILING FOODS OTHER
THAN WATER. Most syrup or sauce mixtures—and
all types of frying-cook at temperatures much higher
than boiling water. Such temperatures could eventually
harm cooktop surfaces surrounding the modules.
Observe the Following Points in Canning
1. Be sure the canner fits over the center of the
element. If your range or its location does not allow
the canner to be centered on the element, use
smaller-diameter pots for good canning results.
2. For best results, use canners with flat bottoms.
Canners with flanged or rippled bottoms (often
found in enamelware) don’t make good contact
with the cooking element and take a long time to
boil water.
Flat-bottomed canners are recommended.
3. When canning, use recipes and procedures from
reputable sources. Reliable recipes and procedures
are available from the manufacturer of your canner;
manufacturers of glass jars for canning, such as
Ball and Kerr; and the United States Department of
Agriculture Extension Service.
4, Remember that canning is a process that generates
large amounts of steam. To avoid burns from steam
or heat, be careful when canning.
NOTE: If your house has low voltage, canning
may take longer than expected, even though
directions have been carefully followed.
The process time will be shortened by:
(1) using a pressure canner, and
(2) starting ‘with HOT tap water for fastest
heating of large quantities of water.
CAUTION:
●
●
Safe canning requires that harmful microorganisms
are destroyed and that the jars are completely sealed.
When canning foods in a water-bath canner, a gentle
but steady boil must be maintained continuously for
the required time. When canning foods in a pressure
canner, the pressure must be maintained continuously
for the required time.
[f a solid disk or radiant element is used for canning,
please note that these elements heat up and cool
down more slowly than open coil elements. Because
of this difference, after you have adjusted the
controls, it is very important to make sure the
prescribed boil or pressure levels are maintained for
the required time.
10
●
●
The solid disk and radiant elements have temperature
limiters that help prevent damage to the cooktop. If
the bottom of your canner is not flat, the element can
overheat, triggering the temperature limiters to turn
the element off for a time. This will stop the boil or
reduce the pressure in the canner.
Since you must make sure to process the canning
jars for the prescribed time, with no interruption
in processing time, you cannot can on solid disk
or radiant elements if the bottom of your canner is
not flat.
A full selection of modules are available for the range cooklop. The
Imodules can be interchanged quickly and easily. Each module has an
electrical plug which fits into a receptacle in the side of’ (he well nearest the
center of the cooktop. Some modules are inserted :ind removed differently
than others. See each module section for specific instructions for
installing and removing that module.
Care of Modules
Using Electric Element Modules
Some of the modules must be cured or preconditioned
before using them for the first time.
Modules and accessories should be cleaned after
each use. The longer a soil remains, the harder it is
to clean. See each module section in this manual
for specific instructions. Never immerse any module
in water.
When not in the cooktop, modules and accessories
should be stored in a clean, dry place. Always be careful
not to drop the modules or they could be damaged.
You must consider heat up and cool down times for
the elements when determining cooking times. Heat
up and cool down times depend on initial temperature
settings, the type of cookware used and the amount of
food being cooked.
Start cooking at a higher setting to heat the element
f-aster, then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking.
Remember, cooking continues after the element is
turned off, so train yourself to turn the heat down
or off before cooking is done.

COOKING
The use of appropriate cookware is very important
for cooking on open coil, solid disk element or
radiant modules.
Aluminum cookware conducts heat faster than
other metals.
Cast iron and coated cast iron containers are slow to
absorb heat, but generally cook evenly at minimum
heat settings.
Glass cookware should be used only as the
manufacturer describes.
Do not use a wire rack or any other kind of heatretarding pad between the cookware and the element.
●

FOR
ELEMENTS
Good pans have a thick, iltit bottom which absorbs
the heat from the cooking element. The thick, flat
bottom provides good heat distribution from the
element to the food. This cooking process requires
little water, fat or electricity.
Pans with uneven bottoms are not suitable. Pans
with thin, uneven bottoms do not adequately utilize
the heat coming from the cooking element. The
food to be cooked may burn and require more time
and electricity. You would also have to add more fat
or water.
●
How to Check Pan Performance on a Module Element
1. Put I inch of water into the pan.
2. Bring water to a boil and observe the pattern of the
bubbles as the water comes to a boil.
3. A uniform pattern of bubbles across the bottom
of the pan confirms a good heat transfer and a
good pan.
4. Bubbles localized in only a portion of the bottom
indicate uneven contact of the pan to the element,
uneven heat transfer or an unsuitable pan.

Don’t use pans with rounded
bottoms. They don’t have enough
contact with the cooking element
to cook properly.

Use pans of’ the correct diameter
only. They should be slightly larger
than the element so spillovers will
tlow onto the cooktop and not bake
onto the element. A damp cloth is
sufficient to remove the spill. Pans
should not overhang more
than 1 inch beyond the element.
To optimize cooking time and
energy usage, you should use a
pan that is sized correctly for the
cooking process, with a wellfitted lid to avoid evaporation
loss, and cook with as little water
or fat as possible. If the pan is too
small, energy is wasted and
spillage can flow onto the
element.
12
* Place only dry pans on the elements.
Do not place lids on the elements,
particularly wet lids.

~
We recommend that you use
only a flat-bottomed wok. They
are available at your local retail store. The bottom of
the wok should have the same diameter as the
element to ensure proper contact.
Do not use woks that have support
rings. This type of wok will not
heat on the cooking elements.
e
Except in pressure cooking with water
and water-bath canning, canning pots
should not extend more than 1 inch
beyond the surface of the element
and should have flat bottoms. When
canning pots do not meet this description, the use of
the HI heat setting causes excessive heat buildup and
may result in damage to the cooktop. See the Home
Canning Tips section for further information.
Some special cooking procedures require specific
cookware such as pressure cookers, deep fat fryers,
etc. All cookware must have flat bottoms and be the
correct size. The cookware should also be covered,
if applicable to the cooking process.

SOLID
DISK
MODULE
Before Using Your Solid Disk Module for the First Time
The top working surface of solid disk elements have a protective coating
which must be hardened before using the elements for the first time. To
harden this coating, the elements should be briefly heated without a pan
(the coating will stick to the pan). Heat the elements for approximately
5 minutes at HI setting until the smoking stops (this is normal). Heating of
the element will change the stainless steel element trim rings to a gold color.
THE ELEMENT’S PROTECTIVE COATING MUST BE HARDENED
TO HELP PROTECT THE ELEMENT OVER ITS LIFE.

General Information About Radiant Modules
The radiant module features heating coils beneath a
smooth glass ceramic surface. The 2 surfaces units
are shown by out] ines on the glass.
Vhen a surface unit is activated. coils beneath the
Llnit radiate heat through the glass to the cookware.
The red glow of the coils will be instantly visible
through the glass. It will take the surface unit on the
surface a few moments to heat up. The coil cycles
on and and off to maintain your selected control
setting. The coils have temperature limiters to
prevent runaway temperatures.
Use the same cookware that you would use with
solid disk elements.
“ If you are storing modules, do not stack them or
store other materials on top of them. as damage to
the glass ceramic surface of the radiant module is
likely. Be careful not to damage or bend the
electrical plLIg.
●
Do not let pots boil dry. Overheated metal can
bond to glass module. An overheated copper pot
will leave a residue that will permanently stain
the module.
S1 iding alum inure cookware across the glass may
leave metal marks. These metal marks will appear
as small scratches. They can be removed with Cook
Top Cleaning Creme and a razor scraper.
When a surface unit is turned on, the unit can be
seen glowing red within a few seconds. The red
glow will turn on and off (cycling) to maintain the
selected heat setting. With poor cookware, you will
see frequent cycling of the unit off and on. Good,
flat cookware will minimize the cycling.
e It is saf-e to place hot cookware from the oven or
surface on the glass ceramic surface when it is cool.
Hot cookware will not damage the surface.

GRILL
MODULE
How to Assemble the Grill Module
To insert the grill:
1. Be sure the controls for the cooktop grill position
are OFF.
2. place the 2 reflector plates in the grease well aS
shown in this illustration.
3. Grasp the grill element with both hands near the
plug. Keeping the element as nearly horizontal as
possible, push the plug firmly into the receptacle to
ensure complete contact as shown in this illustration.
The element should lie flat and rest on the ridges of
the reflector plates.
4. Place the 2 grill grids into the opening in the
cooktop over the grill element.
General Information About Grill Modules
Use the grill for preparing meals with the appearance
and flavor of commercially char-broiled meats. The
grill must be very hot for this type of cooking and
smoke and spatter is to be expected. Be sure to use
your venting system when grilling to help minimize
smoke.
Do not use pots or pans on your grill. You
could be seriously burned by neat from the
exposed surfaces of the grill when reaching
for the pot handle. Pots or pans may trap heat
from the grill and result in damage to the grill
grates or grill finish.
The grill must be preheated to get the gri II
components hot enough to sear the meat; seal in:
in the juices. Preheat the grill cm HI for 5 to 10
minutes, then turn back to the recommended setting.
‘The grill element is divided so the front and
rear sections are controlled separately. You can
heat both sections to the same temperature for
cooking large amounts of the same food, or you can
vary the temperatures on front and rear for cooking
2 different foods. Also, you can save energy when
cooking small amounts of food by turning only
I section on and leaving the other off entirely.
NEVER LEAVE THE KITCHEN while grilling
meats or other juicy foods. Fats and juices drip
on the hot grill element and may cause flame-ups.
When grilling, you should always be present to
control flame-ups so they do not get out of hand.
●
●
●
●
16
To control flame-ups, set heat setting at LO
rather than OFF. If you have a bad flame-up and
there is danger of the fire spreading, take the
following steps immediately:
1. Turn the grill controls to OFF, and push the vent
switch to HI.
2. LTSC a long-handled utensil to remove the food
from the grill. Be careful not to get burned.
The tire should stall to go out. Ifit does not, smother
the flames by covering the entire grill module with
a large cookie sheet, the lid from a large roasting
pan. the griddle or the module cover.
NEVER USE WATER ON A C, REASE FIRE.
Never try to use charcoal or flavored wood chips
in the well under the grill grids. Use of charcoal
indoors without proper ventilation produces
carbon monoxide that can be fatal. Also, burning
charcoal in the well will permanently damage the
porcelain coating in the well.
Never line the grill grid or the porcelain enameled
grease well with aluminum foil. Doing so may block
drainage of grease, causing excessive smoking, fire
or module damage.
NOTE: The non-stick grill grids must be preconditioned
before using them for the first time. To precondition,
first wash them in soap and water and dry. Then use a
paper towel to apply a small amount of cooking oil to
the grids. Remove excess oil with a clean paper towel.

~TE: It is recommended that you have a dry chemical, foam or HaIon
type fire extinguisher where you can easily reach it in case of a cooking
tire. NEVER USE WATER ON A GREASE FIRE as it is likely to spread
the flames. Read the instructions cm the extinguisher ahead of time and be
prepared to follow them in case of a cooking fire.
Grill Tips

●
●
Do not leave grill unattended while it is in use.
Use the grill module ONLY with the downdraft vent
blower on HI to carry away smoke and ftunes. This
is automatically controlled.
Remove accumulated grease from the non-removable
grease we] 1 after each use to lessen smoking and
odors. Be sure opening to grease tube is clean. Grease
buildup can become a fire hazard.
Make sure grease CO1 Iector jars and reflector plates
are clean tind in place before using the grill. Remove
grease from the grease collector jars after each use
to avoid spillovers.
Grates should be oijed or sprayed with a non-stick,
salt-free vegetable oil before cooking to prevent
sticking.

Q. I follow the cooking times suggested, but my
foods don’t get done properly. Is there something
wrong with my grill?
A. Probably not. Suggested cooking times should be
used only as a general guide. Vtiriables in food can
change cooking times required.
“ Preheat the grill for 5 minutes at HI heat setting,
then turn to desired setting for cooking.
Trim fat from meats before placing on grill. This
will reduce smoking and lessen grease buildup in the

Q. How can I keep barbecued meats from developing
an unattractive burned look and taste?
A. Sauces containing sugar will often burn if used
during the entire cooking time. If your favorite
sauce contains sugar, try adding it only during the
last 15 to 20 minutes of cooking time for best
results.
Q. Can my grill be switched to the other side of
the range?
A. Yes. These interchangeable modules can be used
on either the right or left side of the cooktop.
When inserting or removing a module, take care
not to force the connection or exert undue pressure
which could damage the electrical contacts.
Additional modules can be purchased from your
dealer, to double your grill/griddle capacity or to
add 2 more open coil elements.
Q. Foods cooked on mv mill are not browning as
much as I would like~What could cause th;s?
A. A longer preheating and grill time may be
necessary to achieve the desired results.

our non-stick coated griddle provides an extra-large cooking surface
for meats, pancakes or other foods usually prepared in a frying pan or
electric skillet. You can also use the griddle as a warming tray by using
a low-heat setting.
How to Assemble the Griddle Accessory
1. Be sure the controls are OFF.
2. Place the 2 reflector plates in the grease well.
3. Grasp the grill element with both hands near the
plug. Keeping the element as nearly horizontal as
possible, push the pltlg firmly into the receptacle to
ensure complete contact.
4. Place the griddle into the opening in the cooktop
with the 2 drain holes toward the front of the
cooktop (nearest the controls) as shown in this
illustration.
NOTE: When properly placed, the griddle sits
slightly above the cooktop. This. and the open
spaces on the sides and rear of the griddle, prevent
excessive temperatures.
Using the Griddle
The non-stick griddle must be preconditioned
before using it for the first time. To precondition,
first wash the griddle in soap and water and dry. Then
use a paper towel to apply a small amount of cooking
oil [o the griddle. Remove excess oil with a clean
paper towel.
Preheat the griddle as recommended in the Griddle
Cooking Guide. After preheating for the recommended
amount of time, apply a smal I amount of’ oil or butter.
Do not overheat the griddle. Leaving the griddle
at HI for more than 10 minutes without food can
damage the non-stick coating.
When using the griddle, the blower system is
automatically controlled.
Always turn on both sections of the heating
element under the griddle. Heating only part of the
griddle may warp it and will result in non-uniform
cooking. Because the heating element under the
griddle is divided, yOLI can vary the temperature on
the front and rear sections.
How to Remove Griddle Accessory
Be sure the controls are OFF and the griddle is cool.
To remove the griddle:
1. Lift the back edge of the griddle a bit to let any
excess fat or oil drain.
2. Remove the griddle.
3. Grasp the element with both hands on either side
of the plug.
4. Raise the opposite side of the element just enough
to clear the well, then pLdl away from the receptacle,
The element will not sit level when replaced if
it is forced too far upward when removed.
5. Remove the 2 reflector plates.

GRIDDLE
ACCESSORY
(continued)
Griddle Tips
Condition or “season” griddle before first-time use.
Most griddled foods require cooking on a preheated
surface, which may be greased lightly before adding
food. Preheat the griddle 5 minutes at HI heat setting,
unless otherwise indicated in the Griddle Cooking
Guide, then switch to recommended cook setting.
Foods which are high in natural fat, such as bacon or
sausage, may be started on a cold griddle.
* Foods to be warmed may be placed directly on the
griddle; a high domed metal cover, such as an inverted
kettle, placed over them will help store the heat.
Foods in covered dishes or pans may also be warmed
on the griddle. Use heat- resistant dishes only.
●
●
●
●
●
●
Make sure grease collector jars and reflector plates
are clean before using griddle.
To preserve the finish, use only Teflon’”> coated,
nylon or wooden spatulas and spoons. Never use
the griddle surface as a cutting board.
Over a period of time, minor scratches and some
discoloration may appear in the non-stick coating.
This will not affect the cooking performance or the
non-stick finish.
Questions and Answers
Q. How should I store my griddle when it is not in
use?
A. To avoid marring the non-stick finish, store griddle
upright on the edge with the terminals up to avoid
damage. If it is necessary to store it flat, avoid
placing other pans or cookware on top.
Q. How long can foods be kept warm with the
griddle without losing their appeal?
A. No longer than 2 hours is recommended, to assure
good food quality and prevent spoilage. Delicate
foods, such as eggs, should not be kept more than
15 to 30 minutes; entrees and casseroles may be
warmed for 30 to 60 minutes. Hors d’oeuvres will
stay hot for serving up to 1 or 1 ‘A hours. Rearrange
or stir foods occasionally, if possible.
Q. Why aren’t my foods done even though they
have cooked the full time?
A. Preheat the griddle for a longer time and leave
foods on the griddle longer to attain the desired
degree of browning.
Q. Can my griddle be switched to the other side of
the range where it would be more convenient
for me?
A. All interchangeable modules can be used on either
the right or left side of your maintop. Simply lift
out the elements, taking care not to damage the
electrical contacts by jerking or forcing them.
Reverse the griddle and plug it into the receptacle
on the opposite side of the range.
20
Q. Do I need special cookware for use with my
griddle?
A. Avoid using metal cookware with sharp points or
rough or sharp edges which might damage the
non-stick coated griddle surface. Do not cut foods
on the griddle. Use only heat-resistant dishes when “–
foods in containers are to be warmed on the
griddle. For further information on caring for your
griddle’s surface, see the Care and Cleaning
section.
Q. Can prolonged periods of high heat damage my
griddle’s surface?
A. A brief preheating period is often necessary for
best results with many foods, but leaving the
griddle on HI heat setting for more than 10
minutes without food can damage the non-stick
coating. Always be sure to turn control knobs to
OFF when cooking is completed.

USING
YOUR
Before Using Your Oven
1. Look at the controls. Be sure you understand how
to set them properly. Read over the directions for the
Oven Controls so you understand how to use them.
2. Check oven interior. Look at the shelves. Take a
practice run at removing and replacing them
properly, to give sure, sturdy support.
OVEN
3. Read over information and tips that 1011ow.
4. Keep this book handy so you can refer to it,
especially during the first weeks of using your
new range.
Oven Shelves
Shelf Positions
The shelves are designed with stop-locks so that
when placed correctly on the shelf supports, they
will stop before coming out completely from the
oven, and will not tilt when removing food from or
placing food on them.
To remove the
shelves from the
oven, pull toward
you, tilt the front
end upward and
pull them out.
The oven has 4 shelf
supports identified in
this illustration as
A (bottolm), B, C and
D (top). Shelf
positions for cooking
are suggested in the
Baking, Roasting and
Broiling sections.
To replace, place the shelf on the shelf support with
the stop-locks (the curved extension under the shelf]
facing up toward the rear of the oven. Tilt up the front
and push the shelf toward the back of the oven until it
xoes past “stop” on the oven wall. Then lower the
Front ;f the sh~lf and push it all the way back.

Use the right hand switch on the cooktop control panel
to turn the oven light on and off. Note that the same
switch also turns the downdraft vent blower on and off.
Adjusting the Oven Thermostat
If you don’t think the oven is heating at the right
temperature when you are baking or roasting, yOLI
can reset the thermostat yourself.
When cooking food for the first time in your new
oven, use time given on recipes as a guide. Oven
thermostats, over a period of years, may “drift” from
the factory setting and the differences in timing
between an old and a new oven of 5 to 10 minutes are
not unusual. Your oven has been set correctly at the
factory and is more likely to be accurate than the oven
which it replaced.
We do not recommend the use of inexpensive
thermometers, such as those found in the grocery
store, to check the temperature setting of your new
oven. These thermometers can vary by 2043 degrees.
To decide how much to change the temperature,
set the oven temperature 25°F. higher or lower than
the temperature in your recipe, then bake. The results
of the’’test” should give you an idea of how much the
temperature should be changed.

To adjust the temperature:
1. Push the BAKE button.
2. Select a temperature between 500°F. and 550°F.
with the SET knob.
3. Quickly (within 2 seconds, before the BAKE

Baking Pans
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it. Preheat
means brin~in~ the oven up to the specified
temperatur~ b~fore putting-in the fo~d. To preheat, set
the oven at the correct temperature—selecting a
higher temperature does not shorten preheat time.
Preheating is necessary for good results when baking
cakes, cookies, pastry and breads. For most casseroles
and roasts, preheating is not necessary. For ovens
without a preheat indicator light or tone, preheat 10
minutes. After the oven is preheated place the food
‘n the oven as quickly as possible to prevent heat
Jm escaping.
Use the proper baking pan. The type of finish on the
pan determines the amount of browning that will occur.
Dark, rough or dull pans absorb heat resulting in a
browner, crisper crust. Use this type for pies.
Shiny, bright and smooth pans reflect heat, resulting
in a lighter, more delicate browning. Cakes and
cookies require this type of pan.
Glass baking dishes also absorb heat. When baking
in glass baking dishes, lower the temperature by 25°F.
and use the recommended cooking time in the recipe.
This is not necessary when baking pies or casseroles.

BAKING
(continued)
.
Baking Guides
When using prepared baking mixes, follow package recipe or instructions
for best results.
Cookies
Pan Placement
When baking
cookies, flat
cookie sheets
(without sides)
produce betterlooking cookies.
Cookies baked in
a jelly roll pan
,
.
(short sides all
around) may have
darker edges and pa e or light browning may occur.
Do not use a cookie sheet so large that it touches the
walls or the door of the oven.
For best results, use only 1 cookie sheet in the oven at
a time.
For even cooking and proper browning, there must be
enough room for air circulation in the oven. Baking
results will be better if baking pans are centered as
much as possible rather than being placed to the front
or to the back of the oven.
Pans should not touch each other or the walls of the
oven. Allow 1 to 1 X inch space between pans as well
as from the back of the oven, the door and the sides. If
you use 2 shelves, stagger the pans so 1 is not directly
above the other.
Pies
Cakes
For best results,
bake pies in dark,
rough or dull
pans to produce a
browner, crisper
crust. Frozen pies
in foil pans
should be placed
on an aluminum
cookie sheet for baking since the shiny foil pan
reflects heat away from the pie crust; the cookie sheet
helps retain it. -
When baking cakes, warped or bent pans will cause
uneven baking results and poorly shaped products.
A cake baked in a pan larger than the recipe
recommends will usually be crisper, thinner and drier
than it should be. If baked in a pan smaller than
recommended, it may be undercooked and batter may
overflow. Check the recipe to make sure the pan size
used is the one recommended.
Aluminum Foil
Don’t Peek
Never entirely cover a shelf with a large cookie sheet
or aluminum foil. This will disturb the heat
circulation and results in poor baking. A smaller sheet
of foil may be used to catch a spillover by placing it
on a lower shelf several inches below the food.
Set the timer for the estimated cooking time and do
not open the door to look at your food. Most recipes
provide minimum and maximum baking times such as
“bake 30-40 minutes.”
DO NOT open the door to check until the minimum
time. Opening the oven door frequently during
cooking allows heat to escape and makes baking
times longer. Your baking results may also
be affected.

u!,
ROASTING
-~ not lock the oven door with the latch during
roasting. The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
Roasting is cooking by dry heat. Tender meat or poultry
can be roasted uncovered in your oven. Roasting
temper~tures, which should be low and steady, keep
spattering to a minimum.
Roasting is really a baking procedure used for meats.
Therefore, oven controls are set to BAKE. Roasting is
easy, just follow these directions:
1. Place the shelf
in A or B
position. No
preheating is
necessary.
/
2. Check the
weight of the
meat. Place the
meat fat-sideup, or poultry
/I
breast-side-up,
on roasting rick in a shallow pan. The melting fat
will baste the lmeat. Select a pan as close to the size
of’ the meat as possible. (The broiler pan with rack
is a good pan for this. ) Line the broiler pan with
aluminum t’oil when using the pan for marinating,
:ooking with fruits, cooking heavily cured meats,
or basting food during cooking. Avoid spilling these
materials inside the oven or inside the oven door.
Type
Frozen roasts of beef, pork, lamb, etc., can be started
without thawing, but allow 10 to 25 minutes per
pound additional time (,10 minutes per pound for
roasts under 5 pounds, more time for larger roasts).
Thaw most frozen poultry before roasting to ensure
even doneness. Some commercial frozen poultry can
be cooked successfully without thawing. Follow
directions given on package abel.

Most meats continue to cook slightly while standing
after being removed from the oven. Standing time
recommended for roasts is 10 to 20 minutes. This
allows roasts to firm up and makes them easier to
carve. Internal temperature will rise about 5°F.;
to compensate for the temperature rise, if desired,
remove the roast from the oven sooner (at 5°F,
less than the temperature in the guide below).

BROILING
not lock the oven door with the latch during
broiling. The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
Broiling is cooking food by intense radiant heat from
the upper unit in the oven. Most fish and tender cuts
of meat can be broiled. Follow these directions to
keep spattering and smoking to a minimum.
1. If the meat has fat or gristle near edge, cut vertical
slashes through both about 2“ apart. If desired, fat
may be trimmed, leaving layer about 1/8” thick.
2. Place the meat on the broiler rack in the broiler pan.
Always use the rack so the fat drips into the broiler
pan: otherwise the juices may become hot enough
m catch fire.
3. Position shelf on recommended shelf position as
sllggested in the Broiling Guide.

m
5. Press the BROIL
button and turn the SET knob until your choice
of HI BROIL or LO BROIL is dis~laved.
,.
6. Turn food onlv once durimz broiling. Time foods
for first side a~cording to ~e Broil;ng Guide.
Turn food, then use times given for second side as
a guide to preferred doneness. (Where 2 thicknesses
and times are given together, use first times given
for thinnest food.)
7.. When finished broiling, push the CANCEL button.
Serve food immediately,-leaving pan outside oven
to cool during meal for easiest cleaning.
Use of Aluminum Foil
/1
You can use aluminum foil to line your broiler pan and broiler rack.
However, you must mold the foil tightly to the rack and cut slits in it just
like the rack.
Without the slits, the foil will prevent fat and meat juices from draining to
the broiler pan. The juices could become hot enough to catch on fire. If you
do not cut the slits, you are frying, not broiling.
—
Questions & Answers
Q. When broiling, is it necessary to always use a
rack in the pan?
A. Yes. Using the rack suspends the meat over the
pan. As the meat cooks, the juices fall into the pan,
thus keeping meat drier. Juices are protected by the
rack and stay cooler, thus preventing excessive
spatter and smoking.
Q. Should I salt the meat before broiling?
A. No. Salt draws out the juices and allows them to
evaporate. Always salt after cooking. Turn meat
with tongs; piercing meat with a fork allows juices
to escape. When broiling poultry or fish, brush
each side often with butter.
28
Q. Why are my meats not turning out as brown as
they should?
A. In some areas, the power (voltage) to the oven
may be low. In these cases, preheat the broil unit
for 10 minutes before placing broiler pan with
food in oven. Check to see if you are using the
recommended shelf position. Broil for longest
period of time indicated in the Broiling Guide.
Turn food only once during broiling.
Q. Do I need to grease my broiler rack to prevent
meat from sticking?
A. No. The broiler rack is designed to reflect broiler
heat, thus keeping the surface cool enough to
prevent meat from sticking to the surface.
However, spraying the broiler rack lightly with a
vegetable cooking spray before cooking will make —
cleanup easier.
~. Always use the broiler pan and the rack that comes
with your oven. It is designed to minimize smoking
and spattering by trapping juices in the shielded
lower part of the pan.
2. The oven door should be open to the broil
stop position.
3. For steaks and chops, slash fat evenly around
outside edges of meat. To slash, cut crosswise
through outer fat surface just to the edge of the
meat. Use tongs to turn meat over to prevent
piercing meat and losing juices.
4. If desired, marinate meats or chicken before broiling,
w- brush with barbecue sauce last 5 to 10 minutes
of broiling only.

3, Do not rub or clean the door gasket (B)–the
fiberglass material of the gasket has an extremely
low resistance to abrasion. An intact and wellfitting oven door gasket is essential for energy
efficient oven operation and good baking results. If
you notice the gasket becoming worn, frayed or
damaged in any way, or if it has become displaced
on the door, you should have it replaced.
.
Clean spatters or spills on oven front frame (A) and
oven door outside gasket (B) with a dampened cloth.
Polish with a dry cloth. Do not clean gasket (B).
Do not allow water to run down through openings
in top of door (C). Use detergent and hot water with
a soap-filled steel wool pad, then rinse well with a
vinegar and water mixture. This will help prevent a
brown residue from forming when the oven is
heated. Buff these areas with a dry cloth.
Clean top, sides and outside front of oven door with
soap and water. Do not use abrasives or oven
cleaners.

THE
SELF-CLEANING
OVEN
(continued)
After a Clean Cycle
When the clean cycle is finished, the word
“CLEAN” will be off in the display. Wait until the
oven has cooled below locking temperature and the
word “LOCK” is off in the display.
You will not be able to open the door unless the oven
temperature is at a safe level, If you cannot open the

off, wait until the oven cools and the latch slides easily.
You may notice some white ash in the oven. Just
wipe it up with a damp cloth.
If white spots remain, remove them with a soapfilled steel wool pad. Be sure to rinse the oven surface
thoroughly with a vinegar and water mixture. These
deposits are usually a salt residue that can not be
removed by the clean cycle.
If the oven is not clean after 1 clean cycle,
repeat the cycle.
Questions and Answers
Q. If my oven clock is not set to the correct time of
day, can I still self-clean my oven?
A. If the clock is not set to the correct time of day you
will not be able to set a delay clean to end at a
specific time.
Q. Can I use commercial oven cleaners on any part
of my self-cleaning oven?
A. No cleaners or coatings should be used around any
part of this oven. If you do use them and do not
wipe the oven absolutely clean afterward, the
residue can scar the oven surface and damage
metal parts the next time the oven is automatically
cleaned.
Q. After having just used the oven, I could not
move the latch handle. Why?
A. After several continuous high-temperature bakings
or broil ings, the door cannot be latched. If this
happens, let the oven cool by opening the oven
door. After the oven has cooled, you will be able to
latch the oven door for self-cleaning.
Q. What should I do if excessive smoking occurs
during cleaning?
A. This is caused by excessive soil, and you should
switch the OVEN SET knob to OFF. Open
windows to rid room of smoke. Allow the oven to
cool for at least I hour before opening the door.
Wipe up the excess soil and reset the clean cycle.
Q. Is the “crackling” or “popping” sound I hear
during cleaning normal?
A. Yes. This is the metal heating and cooling during
both the cooking and cleaning functions.
Q. Should there be any odor during the cleaning?
A. Yes, there may be an odor during the first few
cleanings. Failure to wipe out excessive soil might
also cause an odor when cleaning.
Q. What causes the hair-like lines on the enameled –
surface of my oven?
A. This is a normal condition resulting from heating
and cooling during cleaning. They do not affect
how your oven performs.
Q. Why do I have ash left in my oven after cleaning?
A. Some types of soil will leave a deposit which is
ash. It can be removed with a damp sponge or cloth.
Q. My oven shelves do not slide easily. What is
the matter?
A. After many cleanings, oven shelves may become
so clean they do not slide easily. To make shelves
slide more easily after each self-cleaning cycle,
dampen fingers with a small amount of cooking oil
and rub lightly over sides of shelf where they
contact shelf supports.
Q. My oven shelves have become gray after the
self-clean cycle. Is this normal?
A. Yes. After the self-clean cycle, the shelves may
lose some luster and change to a deep gray color.
Q. Can I cook food on the cooktop while the oven
is self-cleaning?
A. Yes. While the oven is self-cleaning, you can use
the cooktop just as you normally do.

Proper care and cleaning are important so your range
will give you efficient and satisfactory service.
Follow these directions carefully in caring for it to
help assure safe and proper maintenance.
BE SURE ELECTRICAL POWER IS OFF BEFORE
CLEANING ANY PART OF THE RANGE.
Care of Modules
Some of the modules must be cured or preconditioned
before using them for the first time. Modules and
accessories should be cleaned after each use. The
longer a soil remains, the harder it is to clean. See
each module section in this manual for specific
instructions. Never immerse any module in-water. When
not in the maintop, modules and accessories should be
stored in a clean, dry place. Always be careful not to
drop the modules or they could be damaged.
Plug-In Elements of the Open Coil Module
To clean the surface units, turn the control to the
highest setting for a minute. The coils will burn off
any soil.
CAUTION
Do not immerse the surface units or the module in
liquids of any kind.
Do not clean the surface units or the module in a
dishwasher.
Do not bend the surface unit plug terminals.
10 not attempt to clean, adjust or in any way repair
the plug-in receptacle or the module.
N’ever operate a surface unit without the drip pan
in place. This can cause scorching of the module,
burning of wire insulation and loss of energy.
●
●
●
●
To remove the drip pans for cleaning, the surface units
must be removed first. Make sure the surface units are
completely cool before touching them.
Surtace Unit
Drip Pan
Lift the surface unit about 1 inch above the drip pm
and pull it out.
Do not lift the surface unit more than 1 inch.
[f you do, it may not lie flat on the drip pan when
you plug it back in.
Repeated lifting of the surface unit more
than 1 inch above the drip pan can permanently
damage the receptacle.
To replace a surface unit:
Replace the drip pan into the recess in the module.
Make sure the opening in the pan lines up with the
receptacle.
Insert the terminals of the surface unit through the
opening in the drip pan and into the receptacle.
Guide the surface unit into place so it rests evenly.
●
●
●
Drip Pans
ReMOVe the surface units. Then lift out the drip pans.
The drip pans can be cleaned by hand. Place them in a
covered container (or a plastic bag) with 1/4 cup
ammonia to loosen the soil. Then scrub with a soap
filled scouring pad if necessary. Rinse with clean
water and polish with a clean soft cloth.
The drip pans may also be cleaned in the dishwasher.
Clean the area under the drip pans often.
Built-up soil, especially grease, may catch fire.
Do not cover drip pans with foil. Using foil so close
to the receptacle could cause shock, fire or damage to
the range.
CAUTION: Be sure all controls are turned to
OFF and surface units are cool before attempting
to remove them.

Solid Disk Element Module
Solid disk elements are easy
1s raised above the module
and sealed to it. Food spills ‘“c’’anbeca”sethee’ement
can not tlow under the
cookware or the element. Spills stay on the module
surface where they cool and are easy to wipe up.
Be sure the controls are off and the module and
elements are cool before handling or cleaning. The
elements cool slowly and do not glow red as open coil
elements do when they are hot.
The trim rings around the elements are stainless steel
and may be cleaned with a stainless steel cleaner.
Cleaning materials: Scouring powder, Heavy Duty
Scotch Brite Scour Pad or soap pad, Cello Electrol.
The red dot in the center can be removed with a soapfilled steel wool pad. The dot is used by the element
manufacturer to identify the element as having a
special safety feature. The red dot will wear off, but
this will not affect the performance or durability of
the element. Do not allow the cleaning powders to
clog the sensor (if the model has one). It must be free
moving. Follow the circular grooves of the element
when cleaning.
Light spills—Wipe the element with a powdered
cleaner and a damp cloth.
Heavy spills—Scrub with a scouring pad and/or
scouring powder.
Stains—Heavy stains can be removed with 80-100
grit sand paper.
After cleaning, wipe element with a damp cloth and
turn element on a medium setting to dry.
Finish with vegetable oil or Cello Electrol. Heat
element on medium for 30 seconds, then turn it off.
Apply a small amount of vegetable oil to a dry cloth
or paper towel and rub a light coating into the element
to prevent the element from rusting. Rub oil onto the
element evenly and wipe off any excess. Heat element
for 1 minute on medium to cure.
The matte black surface can be maintained by
treating it periodically with the Cello Electrol
polish. The solid element dressing is available
through GE service centers. To use the polish, use the
applicator to apply a very thin coating to the entire
element surface. Turn the element on high for several
minutes to bake the polish to the element. When the
element is cool, rub lightly with a cloth or paper towel
to remove any excess polish. The dressing restores the
color of the element and helps prevent the element
from staining. The element must be clean before the
dressing is applied.
NOTE: This product is not a cleanser; it is a cosmetic
polish.

Removal of Packaging Tape
The safest way to remove adhesive left from packing
tape on new appliances to assure no damage is done
to the finish of the product is an application of a
homeho]d liquid dishwashing detergent, mineral oil
or cooking oil. Apply with a soft cloth and allow to
soak. Wipe dry and then apply an appliance polish
to thoroughly clean and protect the surface. This
procedure is also safe for the face of microwave
doors and other plastic and Lexan parts.
NOTE: The plastic tape that is not removed from the
chrome trim on oven parts cannot be removed if
baked on.

Radiant Module
Cleaning of glass ceramic
is different from cleaning a
r=
standard porcelain finish.
\>\ — ./-” To maintain and protect the
surface of your new glass ceramic
module follow these basic steps.
DAILY CLEANING:
Use only Cook Top Cleaning Creme on Glass
Ceramic.
For normal, light soil:
1. Rub a small amount of Cook Top Creme onto
soiled area using a dry paper towel. Wipe until all
soi] and creme are l“emoved. F1-equent cleaning
leaves a protective coating of silicone which is
essential in preventing scratches and abrasions.
2. Clean surface with Cook Top Cleaning Creme after
each use.
For heavy, burned on soil:
1. Apply a few drops of Cook Top Cleaning Creme to
the (cool) soiled area.
2. Using a dry paper towel, rub creme into the burned
on area.
3. Carefully scrape remaining soil with razor scraper.
Hold scraper at 300 angle against the ceramic surface.
4. If any soil remains, repeat the steps listed above.
For additional protection, after all soil has been
removed, polish the entire surface with the Cook
Top Cleaning Creme.
NOTE:
Using a razor scraper will not damage the surface if
the 30°angle is maintained. Store the razor scraper
out of reach of children.
Be sure to use a new, sharp razor scraper. Do not use
a dull or nicked blade.
Special Care:
Sugary spillovers (such as jellies, fudge, candy
syrups) or melted plastics can cause pitting of the
surface of your module unless the spill is removed
while still hot. Special care should be taken when
removing hot substances. Follow these instructions
carefully and remove soil while spill is still hot.
1. Turn off all surface units affected by the spillover.
Remove hot utensils.
--2. Wearing an oven mitt, hold the razor
scraper at a 30° angle to the module
““; ;. 2,+.,
4
and scrape the hot spill to a cool area
y’
outside the surface unit. Be sure to use
a new, sharp razor scraper. Do not use
a dull or nicked blade.
3. With the spill in a cool area, use a dry paper towel
to remove-any excess. Any spillover”r~mai ning
should be left until the surface of the cooktop has
cooled. Do not continue to use the soiled surface
unit until all of the spillover has been removed.
Follow the steps under Heavy Soil to continue the
cleaning-.t3rocess.
General Information:
As the Cook Top Cleaning Creme cleans, it leaves
a protective silicone coating on the module surface.
This coating helps to prevent build-up of mineral
deposits (water spots) and will make future cleaning
easier. Dishwasher detergents remove this protective
coating and therefore make the cooktop more
susceptible to staining.
PRECAUTIONS:
Most cleaners contain ammonia, chemicals and
abrasives which can damage the surface of your
cooktop. Use only the Cook Top Cleaning Creme
for proper cleaning and protection of your glass
ceramic surface.
If you slide aluminum or copper cookware across
the surface of your cooktop, they may leave metal
markings which appear as scratches. If this should
happen, use the razor scraper and Cleaning Creme to
remove these markings. Failure to remove these
residues immediately may leave permanent marks.
s If pots with a thin overlay of aluminum, copper, or
enamel are allowed to boil dry, the overlay may
bond with the glass ceramic and leave a black
discoloration. This should be removed immediately
before heating again or the discoloration may be
permanent.
0 Use of window cleaner may leave an iridescent film
on the cooktop. Cook Top Cleaning Creme will
remove this discoloration.
Water stains (calcium deposits) are removable
using Cook Top Cleaning Creme or fu!l strength
white vinegar.

tiift-Off Oven Door
The oven door is removable but it is heavy. You may
need help removing and replacing the door.
To remove the door,
open it a few inches to
[he special “stop”
position that will hold
the door open. Grasp
firmly on each side
and lift the door
straight up and off the
hinges.
NOTE: Be careful not
to place hands
between the spring
hinge and the oven
frame as the spring
hinge could snap back
and pinch your
fingers.
To replace the door, make sure the hinges are in the
“out” position. Position the slots in the bottom of the
door squarely over the hinges. Then lower the door
,slowly and evenly over both hinges at the same time.
TO CLEAN THE DOOR:
(Do not immerse door in water.)
Inside of door:
Because the area inside the gasket is cleaned during
the self clean cycle, you do not need to clean this by
hand. Any soap left on the liner causes additional
stains when the oven is heated.
The area outside the gasket can be cleaned with a
scouring pad.
Do not rub or clean the door gasket–the fiberglass
material of the gasket has an extremely low
resistance to abrasion. An intact and well-fitting
oven door gasket is essential for energy-efficient
oven operation and good baking results. If you
notice the gasket becoming worn, frayed or damaged
in any way or if it has become displaced on the door,
you should have it replaced.
NOTE: The gasket is designed with a gap at the
bottom to allow for proper air circulation.

. mti-Tip Device
1. Before placing range in the counter, notice the
9
location of the stability bracket which is already
attached to the back of the range. This location
should work for most installations. However, it may
be more convenient to hook the stability chain to
the unit when the stability bracket is attached to the
upper set of holes in the back of range. See Fig. A.
The upper level set of holes are intended for use with
a backsplash kit. If the backsplash is not being used,
make sure that there are no structural supports for
the countertop which will interfere with the stability
bracket when located in the upper set of holes.

2. Fasten 1 end of
the stability chain to
the floor or wall with
the long screw and
washer supplied. See
Fig. B. Make certain
the screw is going
into the wall-plate at the base of the wall or 1 of the
studs in the base of the wall. See Fig. C. Whether
you attach the chain to the wall or floor, be certain
that the screw is in at least 3/4 inch thickness of’
wood other than baseboard and that there are no
electrical wires or plumbing in the area which the
screw could penetrate. Attach the stability chain in
a location which will allow the chain to be in line
with the bracket side to aide as much as possible
when attached to the unit. Test to see if the chain is
securely fastened by tugging on the chain.
\
3. Temporarily attach the loose end of the chain to the
rear of the countertop with the tape from the
packaging. See Fig. D.
4. Place the range in the counter cutout leaving just
enough room between the back of the range and the
wall to reach the stability bracket.
5. Hook the loose end of the chain onto the bracket by
slipping the nearest link of the chain into the slot in
the bracket. See Fig. A and make sure the chain is
pulled as tight as possible and that there is no
excess slack in the chain after the chain is attached
to the bracket.

c
Wall Plate
CAUTION: Excessive slack in the chain
could allow the range to tip over.
6. Slide the range all the way back into the counter.
Once the range is pushed back in place, there will
be a small amount of slack in the chain. This
is normal.
NOTB:
If attaching to masonry, you can buy suitable screws
and anchors at hardware stores. Use a masonry drill
to drill the required holes.
If range is removed for cleaning or any other reason,
make sure chain is reattached.

PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE
MODULES ARE
NOT FUNCTIONING
PROPERLY
Difficulty may be in the main distribution panel of your house caused by a
blown circuit fuse, a tripped circuit breaker, the main fuse or the main circuit
breaker, depending on nature of the power supply. If a circuit breaker is
involved, reset it. If the control box uses fuses, the circuit fuse (a cartridge-type)
should be changed. BUT ONLY BY SOMEONE FAMILIAR WITH
ELECTRICAL CIRCUITS. If, after performing 1 of these procedures,
the fuse blows or circuit breaker trips again, call for service.
NOTE: Apartment tenants or condominium owners should request their building
management to perform this check before calling for service.
Controls are not properly set or wrong control is set for the module or element
you are using.
Entire module is not piugged in properly.
If any module fails to heat—switch the module to the other side of cooktop.
If it operates on that side, then switch maybe at fault. If it does not heat,
indications are that there is a malfunctioning component in the module.

Heating Unit is not plugged in solidly.
Grill or Griddle controls are not properly set.
To use entire surface of grill or griddle, it is necessary to turn on front and
rear module controls on the side of the cooktop you are using.
Griddle was not pre-seasoned before first use.
Heat setting is too high.
Coating of griddle has been damaged by use of sharp instruments or abrasive
cleaners.
Accumulated grease in reflector pan or food soils on grate are causing
excess smoke.
Fats not trimmed from meats prior to cooking.
-..
Some smoke and odor is normal when using solid disk elements for the first
time and also after using Cello Electrol@ cleaner.
Because solid disk elements heat by conduction, the cooktop may seem hotter
than you are used to. This is normal. Make sure flat-bottom pans are used.
Using the vent will help keep the cooktop cooler.
“ Absolutely flat pans must be used. If light can be seen between the pan bottom
and a straight edge, the solid disk elements will not operate properly.

Oven temperature is too high to set self-clean operation. Allow the oven to cool to
room temperature and reset the controls.
If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions, turn off and disconnect power supply.
Have the range serviced by a qualified technician.
If “F-” and a number flash on the display, and the control beeps, this indicates a
function error code. Press the CANCEL button. Allow the oven to cool for lhour.
Put oven back into operation. If function error code repeats, disconnect power to
the range. Call for service.
When the temperature has fallen below the safe locking temperature the door
can be opened.
The circuit breaker in your house has been tripped, or a fuse has been blown.
If the modules operate but the blower doesn’t, the fault may be in the blower
control switch or blower wiring connections. Be sure to disconnect power to
the range at the household distribution panel before attempting to service the
blower yourself.
The oven thermostat needs adjustment. See the Adjusting the Oven
