Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
■ 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.
Care and Cleaning
■ Potentially hot surfaces include the
cooktop, areas facing the cooktop, oven
vent opening, surfaces near the opening,
crevices around the oven door.
■ Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
■ Keep the hood and grease filters clean
to maintain good venting and to avoid
grease fires.
■ Teach children not to play with the
controls or any other part of the range.
■ Always keep dish towels, dishcloths, 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.
■ REMEMBER: The inside surface of the oven
may be hot when the door is opened.
COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY…
Troubleshooting Tips
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.
RADIANT SURFACE 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.
Consumer Support
■ Never leave the surface units unattended
at high heat settings. Boilovers cause
smoking and greasy spillovers that may
catch on fire.
■ 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.
4
■ 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.
■ Always turn the surface units off before
removing cookware.
■ When preparing flaming foods under
the hood, turn the fan on.
RADIANT SURFACE UNITS
Care and Cleaning
Troubleshooting Tips
■ Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet
sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a
hot surface unit, be careful to avoid steam
burns. Some cleaners can produce
noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
NOTE: We recommend that you avoid
wiping any surface unit areas until they
have cooled and the indicator light has
gone off. Sugar spills are the exception
to this. Please see the Cleaning the glass
cooktop section.
■ When the cooktop is cool, use only
CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic Cooktop
Cleaner and the CERAMA BRYTE®
Cleaning Pad to clean the cooktop.
■ To avoid possible damage to the cooking
surface, do not apply cleaning cream to
the glass surface when it is hot.
■ After cleaning, use a dry cloth or paper
towel to remove all cleaning cream
residue.
■ Read and follow all instructions and
warnings on the cleaning cream labels.
■ Large scratches or impacts to glass doors
or cooktops can lead to broken or
shattered glass.
■ Do not leave any items on the cooktop.
The hot air from the vent may ignite
flammable items and will increase pressure
in closed containers, which may cause
them to burst.
■ Do not leave plastic or flammable items
on the cooktop—they may melt or ignite
if left too close to the vent.
■ Do not lift the cooktop. Lifting the
cooktop can lead to damage and improper
operation of the range.
Operating Instructions
Consumer Support
■ Use care when touching the cooktop. The
glass surface of the cooktop will retain heat
after the controls have been turned off.
■ 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 point.
■ Avoid scratching the glass cooktop.
The cooktop can be scratched with items
such as sharp instruments, rings or other
jewelry, and rivets on clothing.
■ Do not operate the radiant surface units if
the glass is broken. Spillovers or cleaning
solution may penetrate a broken cooktop
and create a risk of electrical shock.
Contact a qualified technician immediately
should your glass cooktop become broken.
■ Never use the glass cooktop surface as
a cutting board.
■ Do not place or store items that can melt
or catch fire on the glass cooktop, even
when it is not being used.
■ Be careful when placing spoons or other
stirring utensils on glass cooktop surface
when it is in use. They may become hot
and could cause burns.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
■ Keep the oven vent unobstructed.
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
■ Place the oven shelf in the desired position
while the oven is cool. If shelves must be
handled when hot, do not let pot holder
contact the heating elements.
■ When using cooking or roasting bags in
the oven, follow the manufacturer’s
directions.
■ Do not use the oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch on 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.
■ Do not use aluminum foil to line oven
bottoms, except as suggested in this
manual. Improper installation of
aluminum foil may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire.
Care and Cleaning
■ Pulling out the shelf to the stop-lock is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also
a precaution against burns from touching
hot surfaces of the door or oven walls.
SELF-CLEANING OVEN
Troubleshooting Tips
■ 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.
Consumer Support
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.
READ AND FOLLOW THIS SAFETY INFORMATION CAREFULLY.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
■ Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the
broiler pan, grid and other cookware.
■ Take the shelves out of the oven before
you begin the self-clean cycle or they
may discolor.

■ The pan is off-center.
■ There is no pan on the unit.
Home Canning Tips
Make sure the canner is flat on the
bottom.
To prevent burns from steam or heat,
use caution when canning.
Use recipes and procedures from
reputable sources. These are available
from manufacturers such as Ball® and
Kerr® and the Department of Agriculture
Extension Service.
Flat-bottomed canners are
recommended. Use of water bath
canners with rippled bottoms may
extend the time required to bring
the water to a boil.

The radiant cooktop features heating
units beneath a smooth glass surface.
NOTE: A slight odor is normal when a new
cooktop is used for the first time. It is caused by
the heating of new parts and insulating materials
and will disappear in a short time.
NOTE: On models with light-colored glass
cooktops, it is normal for the cooking zones to
change color when hot or cooling down. This is
temporary and will disappear as the glass cools
to room temperature.
The surface unit will cycle on and off to
maintain your selected control setting.
It is safe to place hot cookware on the
glass surface even when the cooktop
is cool.
Even after the surface units are turned
off, the glass cooktop retains enough
heat to continue cooking. To avoid
overcooking, remove pans from the
surface units when the food is cooked.
Avoid placing anything on the surface
unit until it has cooled completely.

glass—the glass is scratch-resistant,
not scratchproof.
■ Water stains (mineral deposits) are removable
using the cleaning cream or full-strength white
vinegar.
■ Use of window cleaner may leave an
iridescent film on the cooktop. The cleaning
cream will remove this discoloration.
■ Don’t store heavy items above the cooktop.
If they drop onto the cooktop, they can cause

CAUTION: When you are using the shelf in the lowest
position (A), you will need to use caution when pulling
the shelf out. We recommend that you pull the shelf
out several inches and then, using two pot holders, pull
the shelf out by holding the sides of it. The shelf is low
and you could be burned if you place your hand in the
middle of the shelf and pull all the way out. Be very
careful not to burn your hand on the door when using
the shelf in the lowest position (A).
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
Cut slits in the foil just like the grid.
12
Never cover the oven bottom with aluminum foil.
You can use aluminum foil to line the broiler
pan and broiler grid. However, you must
mold the foil tightly to the grid and cut slits in
it just like the grid.
Aluminum foil may also be used to catch a
spillover. To do so, place a small sheet of foil
on a lower shelf several inches below the food.
Never entirely cover a shelf with aluminum
foil. This will disturb the heat circulation and
result in poor baking.
How to Set the Oven for Broiling
Touch the BROIL HI/LO pad once for
HI Broil.
Follow suggested shelf positions in
the Broiling Guide.
To change to LO Broil, touch the
BROIL HI/LO pad again.
If your range is connected to 208 volts, rare
steaks may be broiled by preheating the broiler
and positioning the oven shelf one position
higher.
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!
Most recipes for baking have been developed using high-fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you
decrease the fat, the recipe may not give the same results as with a higher-fat product.
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.

Before a Clean Cycle
We recommend venting your kitchen
with an open window or using a
ventilation fan or hood during the
first self-clean cycle.
Wipe up heavy soil on the oven
bottom.
NOTE: Take the shelves out of the oven
before you begin the self-clean cycle or
they may discolor.
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 or
plastic scouring pads or cleansers such
as Soft Scrub®. Rinse well with clean
water and dry.
Wipe up any heavy spillovers on the oven
bottom.
Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in
place and the oven light is off.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds
is extremely sensitive to the fumes given
off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
range. Move birds to another wellventilated room.
Follow the directions in the Before a

How to Remove Protective Shipping Film and Packaging Tape
To assure no damage is done to the finish
of the product, the safest way to remove
the adhesive from packaging tape on new

soft cloth and allow to soak.
NOTE: The adhesive must be removed from all parts.
It cannot be removed if it is baked on.
Control Knobs
The control knobs may be removed for easier cleaning.
Replace the knobs, in the OFF position to
ensure proper placement.
Control Panel
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.
Painted surfaces include the sides of the

Oven Vent
The oven vent is located behind the right rear surface
unit.
This area could become hot during oven use.
It is normal for steam to come out
of the vent, and moisture may collect
underneath it when the oven is in use.
The vent is important for proper air circulation. Never
block this vent.
Cleaning the Oven Door
To clean the inside of the door:
■ Because the area inside the gasket is
cleaned during the self-clean 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.
■ The area outside the gasket and the door
liner can be cleaned with a soap-filled
or plastic scouring pad, hot water and
detergent. Rinse well with a vinegar
and water solution.
To clean the outside of the door:
■ 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.
■ Do not use oven cleaners, cleaning
powders or harsh abrasives on 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 on the outside of the door.
Do not let water drip into the vent
openings.

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 to
the razor scraper in order to
remove the residue.
After scraping with the razor
scraper, spread a few drops of
CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic
Cooktop Cleaner on the entire
burned residue area. Use the
CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Pad to
remove any remaining residue.
For additional protection,
after all residue has been
removed, polish the entire
surface with CERAMA BRYTE®
Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner
and a paper towel.
Metal Marks and Scratches
This should be removed
immediately before heating
again or the discoloration
may be permanent.
WARNING: Carefully check the bottom of
pans for roughness that would scratch
the cooktop.
Operating Instructions
Be careful not to slide pots and
pans across your cooktop. It will
leave metal markings on the
cooktop surface.
These marks are removable using
the CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic
Cooktop Cleaner with the
CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Pad for
Ceramic Cooktops.
If pots with a thin overlay of
aluminum or copper are allowed
to boil dry, the overlay may leave
black discoloration on the
cooktop.
Cooktop Seal
To clean the cooktop seal around the
edges of the glass, lay a wet cloth on it
for a few minutes, then wipe clean
with nonabrasive cleaners.
Damage from Sugary Spills and Melted Plastic
Turn off all surface units. Remove
hot pans.
b. Remove the spill with
paper towels.
Don’t use the surface units again
until all of the residue has been
completely removed.
NOTE: If pitting or indentation in the glass
surface has already occurred, the cooktop
glass will have to be replaced. In this case,
service will be necessary.

it can cause permanent
damage to the glass surface
unless the spillover is
