IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
WARNING
• All ranges can tip.
• BURNS or other SERIOUS
INJURIES can result.
• INSTALL and CHECK the
Care and Cleaning
ANTI-TIP bracket following
the instructions supplied
with the bracket.
To reduce the risk of tipping the range, the range must be
secured by a properly installed anti-tip bracket. See installation
instructions shipped with the bracket for complete details
before attempting to install.
To check if the bracket is installed and engaged properly,
remove the storage drawer or kick panel and look underneath
the range to see that the leveling leg is engaged in the bracket.
On models without a storage drawer or kick panel, carefully tip
the range forward. The bracket should stop the range within
4 inches. If it does not, the bracket must be reinstalled. If the
range is pulled from the wall for any reason, always repeat
this procedure to verify the range is properly secured by the
anti-tip bracket.
Never completely remove the leveling legs or the range will not
be secured to the anti-tip device properly.
If you did not receive an anti-tip bracket with your
purchase, call 1.800.626.8774 to receive one at no
cost (in Canada, call 1.800.561.3344). For installation
instructions of the bracket, visit GEAppliances.com
(in Canada, GEAppliances.ca).
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
Troubleshooting Tips
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 cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires
businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.
The fiberglass insulation in self-clean ovens gives off a very small amount of carbon monoxide during the
cleaning cycle. Exposure can be minimized by venting with an open window or using a ventilation fan or hood.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Troubleshooting Tips
COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY…
Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meat to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 160°F and poultry to at least an
INTERNAL temperature of 180°F. Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against foodborne illness.
SURFACE COOKING UNITS
Use proper pan size—select cookware having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating
element. The use of undersized cookware will expose a portion of the surface unit to direct contact and may
result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of cookware to surface unit will also improve efficiency.
■ Only certain types of glass, glass ⁄ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed containers are
suitable for cooktop service; others may break
because of the sudden change in temperature.
■ 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
surface units.

Consumer Support
■ Never leave the surface units unattended
at high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
■ Do not use aluminum foil to line the drip pans
or anywhere in the oven, except as described in
this manual. Misuse could result in a shock, fire
hazard or damage to the range.
■ Be sure the drip pans and the vent duct are not
covered and are in place. Their absence during
cooking could damage range parts and wiring.
Care and Cleaning

sheet or flat tray. Use a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ Flaming grease outside a pan can be put out by
covering it with baking soda or, if available, by
using a multi-purpose dry chemical or
foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ Flame in the oven can be smothered completely
by closing the oven door and turning the oven
off or by using a multi-purpose dry chemical or
foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ Do not touch the surface units, the heating
elements or the interior surface of the oven.
These surfaces may be hot enough to burn
even though they are dark in color. During and
after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other
flammable materials contact the surface units,
areas nearby the surface units or any interior
area of the oven; allow sufficient time for
cooling first.
■ Potentially hot surfaces include the cooktop,
areas facing the cooktop, oven vent opening,
surfaces near the opening, crevices around the
oven door.
■ REMEMBER: The inside surface of the oven may
be hot when the door is opened.
■ Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids
in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
Operating Instructions
■ Never wear loose-fitting or hanging garments
while using the appliance. Be careful when
reaching for items stored over the range.
Flammable material could be ignited if brought
in contact with hot surface units or heating
elements and may cause severe burns.
■ Use only dry pot holders—moist or damp pot
holders on hot surfaces may result in burns
from steam. Do not let pot holders touch hot
surface units or heating elements. Do not use
a towel or other bulky cloth in place of pot
holders.
■ For your safety, never use your appliance for
warming or heating the room.
■ Teach children not to play with the controls or
any other part of the range.
■ Always keep dish towels, dish cloths, pot holders
and other linens a safe distance from your range.
■ Always keep wooden and plastic utensils and
canned food a safe distance from your range.
■ Always keep combustible wall coverings, curtains
or drapes a safe distance from your range.
■ Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
■ Keep the hood and grease filters clean to
maintain good venting and to avoid grease fires.

■ Keep an eye on foods being fried at high or
medium high heat settings.
■ 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
the sides of the pan.
■ 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.
■ Use a deep fat thermometer whenever possible
to prevent overheating fat beyond the smoking

saucepan to the size of the surface unit.
The pan should not extend over the
edge of the surface unit more than 1″.
Care and Cleaning
1″
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.
Wok Cooking
We recommend that you use only a flat-bottomed
wok. They are available at your local retail store.
Do not use woks that have support rings.
Operating Instructions

Safety Instructions
Using the surface units.
Do not use round bottom woks. You
could be seriously burned if the wok
tipped over.
Troubleshooting Tips
Placing the ring over the surface unit will
cause a buildup of heat that will damage
the porcelain cooktop.
Use only flat-bottomed woks.
Home Canning Tips
Be sure the canner is centered over the
surface unit.
Consumer Support

How to Set the Oven for Baking or Roasting
Care and Cleaning
Operating Instructions
Using the oven.
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it.
Preheating is necessary for good results when
baking cakes, cookies, pastry and breads.
The Display will show “PrE” while preheating. When
the oven reaches the selected temperature, the oven
control will beep and the display will show the oven
temperature.
Baking results will be better if baking pans are
centered in the oven as much as possible. If
baking with more than one pan, place the
pans so each has at least 1 to 11⁄2″ of air space
around it. If baking four cake layers at the
same time, place two layers on shelf B and two
layers on shelf D. Stagger pans on the shelf so
one is not directly above the other.
Aluminum Foil
Do not use aluminum foil on the bottom of the oven.
Never entirely cover a shelf with aluminum
foil. This will disturb the heat circulation and
result in poor baking.
8
A smaller sheet of foil may be used to catch
a spillover by placing it on a lower shelf several
inches below the food.
Do not latch the oven door during broiling. The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
How to Set the Oven for Broiling
Place the meat or fish on a broiler
grid in a broiler pan designed
for broiling.
Follow suggested shelf positions in
the Broiling Guide.
To change to Lo Broil, touch the
Broil Hi/Lo pad again.
Touch the Start pad.
When broiling is finished, touch the
Clear/Off pad.
Use Lo Broil to cook foods such as
poultry or thick cuts of meat thoroughly
without over-browning them.

The type of margarine will affect baking performance!
Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries, cookies or candies are made with low-fat spreads. The lower the fat
content of a spread product, the more noticeable these differences become.
Federal standards require products labeled “margarine” to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low-fat spreads,
on the other hand, contain less fat and more water. The high moisture content of these spreads affects the
texture and flavor of baked goods. For best results with your old favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or
stick spreads containing at least 70% vegetable oil.

Most recipes for baking have been developed using high-fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you

but they will darken, lose their luster and
become hard to slide.
Care and Cleaning
Operating Instructions
Using the self-cleaning oven.
Soil 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 scrubbing 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.
Wipe up any heavy spillovers on the
oven bottom.
Make sure the oven light bulb cover is

How to Remove Protective Shipping Film and Packaging Tape
Carefully grasp a corner of the protective
shipping film with your fingers and slowly
peel it from the appliance surface. Do not
use any sharp items to remove the film.
Remove all of the film before using the
appliance for the first time.
To assure no damage is done to the
finish of the product, the safest way to
remove the adhesive from packaging tape
on new appliances is an application of a
household liquid dishwashing detergent.
Apply with a soft cloth and allow to soak.
NOTE: The adhesive must be removed from all
parts. It cannot be removed if it is baked on.
Care and Cleaning
Control Knobs
The control knobs may be removed for easier
cleaning.
Make sure the knobs are in the OFF
positions and pull them straight off the

The knobs can be cleaned in a
dishwasher or they may also be washed
with soap and water. Make sure the inside
of the knobs are dry before replacing.
Replace the knobs in the OFF position to
ensure proper placement.
Control Panel
Troubleshooting Tips
It’s a good idea to wipe the control panel
after each use of the oven. Use a damp
cloth to clean or rinse. For cleaning, use
mild soap and water or a 50/50 solution
of vinegar and water. For rinsing, use
clean water. Polish dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use abrasive cleansers, strong
liquid cleaners, plastic scouring pads or
oven cleaners on the control panel—
they will damage the finish.
Oven Heating Elements
Consumer Support
Do not clean the bake element or the broil
element. Any soil will burn off when the
elements are heated.
18
To clean the oven floor, gently lift
the bake element. Clean with warm
soapy water.
Oven Shelves
It will be necessary to grease all oven
shelf side edges with a light coating of
vegetable oil after cleaning them by hand
or in the oven. This will help maintain
the ease of sliding the shelves in and
out of the oven.
Porcelain Enamel Cooktop
The porcelain enamel finish is sturdy but
breakable if misused. This finish is acidresistant. However, any acidic foods
spilled (such as fruit juices, tomato or
vinegar) should not be permitted to
remain on the finish.
If acids spill on the cooktop while it is
hot, use a dry paper towel or cloth to
wipe it up right away. When the surface
has cooled, wash with soap and water.
Rinse well.
Care and Cleaning
For other spills such as fat spatterings,
wash with soap and water or cleansing
powders after the surface has cooled.
Rinse well. Polish with a dry cloth.
Painted Surfaces
Painted surfaces include the sides, top
of backguard and the drawer front.
Clean these with soap and water or
a vinegar and water solution.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners,
cleaning powders, steel wool or harsh
abrasives on any painted surface.
Troubleshooting Tips
Oven Vent
The oven is vented through an opening
under the right rear surface unit.
The vent is important for proper air
circulation.
This area could become hot during oven use.
Never block this vent.
Operating Instructions
All oven shelves may be cleaned by hand
with an abrasive cleaner or steel wool.
After cleaning, rinse the shelves with

Safety Instructions
Cleaning the Oven Door
To clean the inside of the door:
■ Because the area inside the gasket is
cleaned during the self-cleaning cycle,
you do not need to clean this by hand.
The gasket is designed with a gap at the
bottom to allow for proper air circulation.
Do not rub or clean the door gasket—
it has an extremely low resistance to
abrasion.
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.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ If any stain on the door vent trim is
persistent, use a soft abrasive cleaner
and a sponge-scrubber for best results.
■ Spillage of marinades, fruit
juices, tomato sauces and basting
materials containing acids may cause
discoloration and should be wiped
up immediately. When surface is
cool, clean and rinse.

To clean the outside of the door:
■ Use soap and water to thoroughly
clean the top, sides and front of the
oven door. Rinse well. You may also
use a glass cleaner to clean the glass

NOTE: If your cooktop is equipped with shiny,
silver-colored drip pans, do not clean them in the
self-cleaning oven. Permanent damage to the finish
can occur.
If your cooktop is equipped with black or gray
porcelain-coated drip pans, they can be cleaned in the
oven during the self-cleaning cycle. Before you begin a
self-cleaning cycle, remove any heavy soil from the drip
pans and place them on the porcelain-coated oven
shelves. Do not place the drip pans directly on the oven
bottom. After the self-cleaning cycle is completed and
the drip pans are cool, wipe them with a damp cloth to
remove any remaining ash or residue.
