■ 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.
■ 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.
■ 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.
■ Large scratches or impacts to glass doors or
cooktops can lead to broken or shattered glass.
■ 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.
■ The surface units are automatically disabled
during the self-clean cycle. Make sure that all
surface unit controls are turned off at all times
during the self-clean cycle. Any surface unit
that is set to an on position, while the self-clean
cycle is operating, will automatically come on
after the self-clean cycle is finished, and could
result in an on, unattended surface unit. Wait
until the self-clean cycle is finished to set and
use the surface units.
■ Do not place or store items that can melt or
catch fire on the glass cooktop, even when it
is not being used, or during the self-clean cycle.
■ 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.
■ 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 the
Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner and the Ceramic
Cooktop 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.
■ Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic
may melt onto the surface and be very difficult
to remove.
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.
■ Keep the oven vent unobstructed.
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
■ Place the oven rack in the desired position
while the oven is cool. If racks 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.
Operating Instructions

Pressure could build up and the container
could burst, causing an injury.
■ 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.
SELF-CLEANING OVEN
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.
CAUTION: DO NOT LEAVE FOOD OR
■ 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.
■ Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the
convection roasting rack, broiler pan, grid
and other cookware.
■ Shiny, silver-colored oven racks (on some
models) should be removed from the oven
before beginning the self-clean cycle.

About the radiant surface units.
WARNING: The surface
units are automatically disabled during
the self-clean cycle. Make sure that all
surface unit controls are turned off at all
times during the self-clean cycle. Any
surface unit that is set to an on position,
while the self-clean cycle is operating, will
automatically come on after the self-clean
cycle is finished, and could result in an
on, unattended surface unit. Wait until
the self-clean cycle is finished to set and
use the surface units.
The radiant cooktop features heating
units beneath a smooth glass surface.
Cooktop temperatures increase with
the number of surface units that are on.
With 3 or 4 units turned on, surface
temperatures are high. Always use
caution when touching the cooktop.
An indicator light will come on when
the surface unit is turned on.
The appropriate HOT SURFACE indicator
light will glow when its corresponding
radiant element is turned on and will
remain on until the surface has cooled
below 150°F.
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.
It is safe to place hot cookware from the
oven or surface on the glass cooktop
when the surface 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.
■ 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
damage.
■ Do not use the surface as a cutting board.
NOTE:
Hot surface indicator light will:
■ Come on when the surface unit is
turned on.
■ Stay on even after the unit is turned off.
■ Glow brightly until the unit has cooled
below 150°F.
Consumer Support
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.
Temperature Limiter
Every radiant surface unit has a
temperature limiter.
The temperature limiter may cycle the
units off for a time if:
The temperature limiter protects the
glass cooktop from getting too hot.
■ The pan boils dry.
■ The pan bottom is not flat.
■ The pan is off center.
■ There is no pan on the unit.

recommended for cast iron cookware
that is not completely covered with
smooth porcelain enamel, as it may
scratch the glass ceramic cooktop.
Aluminum:
Check pans for flat bottoms by using
a straight edge.
heavy weight recommended
Good conductivity. Aluminum residues
sometimes appear as scratches on the
cooktop, but can be removed if cleaned
immediately. Because of its low melting
point, thin weight aluminum should not
be used.
Copper Bottom:
Glass-ceramic:
usable, but not recommended
Poor performance. May scratch the
surface.
Stoneware:
usable, but not recommended
Poor performance. May scratch the
surface.
Care and Cleaning
recommended
Copper may leave residues which can
appear as scratches. The residues can
be removed, as long as the cooktop is

To avoid possible burns, place the racks in the desired position before you turn the oven on.
Before you begin…
The racks have stops, so that when placed
correctly on the supports, they will stop
before coming completely out, and will
not tilt.
To replace, place the end of the rack
(stop-locks) on the support, tilt up the
front and push the rack in.
When placing and removing cookware,
pull the rack out until it stops.
When you are using a
rack in the lowest position (A), you will need to
use caution when pulling the rack out. We
recommend that you pull the rack out several
inches and then, using two pot holders, pull the
rack out by holding the sides of it. The rack is low
and you could be burned if you place your hand in
the middle of the rack and pull all the way out. Be
very careful not to burn your hand on the door
when using the rack in the lowest position (A).
On some models, the bake heating
element is under the oven floor. Do not

Preheating is necessary for good results
when baking cakes, cookies, pastry and
breads.
To preheat, set the oven at the correct
temperature. The control will beep when
the oven is preheated and the display will
show your set temperature. This will take
approximately 15–20 minutes.
Do not place foods directly on the
oven floor.
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 rack B and two layers on
rack D. Stagger pans on the rack so one is
not directly above the other.
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.
Cut slits in the foil just like the grid.
12
Without the slits, the foil will prevent fat
and meat juices from draining into the
broiler pan. The juices could become
hot enough to catch on fire. If you
do not cut the slits, you are essentially
frying, not broiling.
Do not use aluminum foil on the bottom of
the oven.
Never entirely cover a rack with
aluminum foil. This will disturb the heat
circulation and result in poor baking.
A smaller sheet of foil may be used to
catch a spillover by placing it on a lower
rack several inches below the food.
How to Set the Oven for Broiling
Leave the door open to the broil stop position.
The door stays open by itself, yet the proper
temperature is maintained in the oven.
Use LO Broil to cook foods such as
poultry or thick cuts of meat thoroughly
without over-browning them.
Place the meat or fish on the broiler
grid in the broiler pan.
Touch the BROIL HI/LO pad once for
HI Broil.
When broiling is finished, touch the
CLEAR/OFF pad.
NOTE: Broil and self-clean settings will not work
if the temperature probe is plugged in.
To change to LO Broil, touch the
BROIL HI/LO pad again.

For many foods, especially roasts and poultry, internal food temperature is the best test for doneness.
The temperature probe takes the guesswork out of roasting by cooking foods to the exact doneness you want.
Use of probes other than the one
provided with this product may result in
damage to the probe or oven control.
Plug
The temperature probe has a
skewer-like probe at one end and
a plug at the other end that goes
into the outlet in the oven.
Probe

Read and remove label
■ To avoid damaging your probe, do not use
tongs to pull on the cable when removing it.
■ Never leave your probe inside the oven during
a self-cleaning or broil cycle.
■ To avoid breaking the probe, make sure food
is completely defrosted before inserting.
■ Do not store the probe in the oven.
After preparing the meat and placing it
on a trivet or on the broiler pan grid,
follow these directions for proper probe
placement.
Insert the probe completely into the meat.
It should not touch bone, fat or gristle.
For roasts with no bone, insert the probe
into the meatiest part of the roast. For
bone-in ham or lamb, insert the probe
into the center of the lowest large muscle.
Insert the probe into the center of dishes
such as meat loaf or casseroles.
Insert the probe into the meatiest part of
the inner thigh from below and parallel
to the leg of a whole turkey.

Care and Cleaning
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.
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.
Troubleshooting Tips
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.

Convection Fan Operation
In a convection oven, a fan circulates hot air over,
under and around the food.
This circulating hot air is evenly distributed
throughout the oven cavity. As a result, foods are
evenly cooked and browned—often in less time
with convection heat.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
Using the convection oven. (on some models)
NOTE: To maximize cooking evenness, the fan is
designed to rotate in both directions, with a pause
in between. This is normal.
The convection fan shuts off when the
oven door is opened. DO NOT leave the
door open for long periods of time while
using convection cooking or you may
shorten the life of the convection heating
element.
Introduction
The convection oven comes with two
convection baking modes started by
touching the CONVECTION BAKE MULTI/
1 RACK pad once or twice, depending
on your cooking need:

1 RACK—for convection cooking on one
rack only. Touch the CONVECTION BAKE
MULTI/1 RACK pad twice. See the 1-Rack
Convection Baking section below.
Multi-Rack Convection Baking
Because heated air is circulated evenly
throughout the oven, foods can be
baked with excellent results using
multiple racks.
Offset racks
BAKE MULTI/1 RACK pad once. See the
Multi-Rack Convection Baking section below.
Multi-rack baking may increase cook
times slightly for some foods but the
overall result is time saved. Cookies,
muffins, biscuits and other quickbreads
give very good results with multi-rack
baking.
To cook food on more than one rack in
convection bake, use CONVECTION BAKE
MULTI.
When baking on 3 racks, place one offset
rack in the third (C) position, the straight
rack in the fourth (D) position and one
offset rack in the sixth (F) position.
For two-rack baking, place one offset rack
in the second (B) rack position. Place
the straight rack in the fourth (D) rack
position.
1-Rack Convection Baking
When convection baking with only 1 rack, use
CONVECTION BAKE 1 RACK and follow the

Roasting rack
Post
Grid
■ Good for large tender cuts of meat, uncovered.
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. Using the roasting rack
provided, heated air will be circulated
over, under and around the food being
roasted. The heated air seals in juices
quickly for a moist and tender product
while, at the same time, creating a rich
golden brown exterior.
When you are convection roasting it is
important that you use the broiler pan
and grid and the special roasting rack
for best convection roasting results. The
pan is used to catch grease spills and the
grid is used to prevent grease spatters,
while the rack allows the heated air to
circulate under the meat and increase
browning on the underside of the meat
or poultry.
■ Place a rack in the lowest rack position
(A).
■ Place the grid on the broiler pan
and put the roasting rack over them,
making sure the posts on the roasting
rack fit into the holes in broiler pan.
■ Place the meat on the roasting rack.
How to Set the Oven for Convection Baking or Roasting
■ You will hear a fan while cooking with
convection. The fan will stop when the door
is opened, but the heat will not turn off.
■ You may hear the oven clicking during baking.
This is normal.
■ In convection bake modes, for maximum cooking
evenness, the fan is designed to rotate in
both directions, with a pause in between.
This is normal.
Cookware for Convection Cooking
When baking cookies, you will get
the best results if you use a flat
cookie sheet instead of a pan with
low sides.
that is heat-resistant to temperatures of
400°F can also be used.
Metal and Glass
Any type of cookware will work in your
convection oven. However, metal pans
heat the fastest and are recommended
for convection baking.
■ Darkened or matte-finished pans will bake
faster than shiny pans.
■ Glass or ceramic pans cook more slowly.
For recipes like oven-baked chicken,
use a pan with low sides. Hot air
cannot circulate well around food in 19
a pan with high sides.
Consumer Support
Before using your convection oven, check
to see if your cookware leaves room for air
circulation in the oven. If you are baking
with several pans, leave space between
them. Also, be sure the pans do not touch
each other or the walls of the oven.
Paper and Plastic
Heat-resistant paper and plastic
containers that are recommended for
use in regular baking can also be used
for convection baking, but should not
be used at temperatures higher than
the temperature recommended by the
cookware manufacturer. Plastic cookware

The proofing feature maintains a warm environment useful for rising yeast-leavened products.
How to Set the Oven For Proofing (on some models)
Place the covered dough in a dish
in the oven on shelf B or C.
Touch the PROOF pad and then
the START pad.
The display will read PrF (proof).
The oven interior light turns on and
remains on during proofing.
The proofing feature automatically
provides the optimum temperature for
the proofing process, and therefore
does not have a temperature adjustment.
When proofing is finished, touch
the CLEAR/OFF pad.
■ To avoid lowering the oven temperature and
lengthening proofing time, do not open the
oven door unnecessarily.
■ Check bread products early to avoid
over-proofing.
NOTE:
■ Do not use the proofing mode for warming
food or keeping food hot. The proofing oven
temperature is not hot enough to hold foods
at safe temperatures. Use the WARM feature
to keep food warm.
How to Set the Oven For Warming (on some models)
The WARM feature keeps cooked
foods hot.
This feature is not designed to reheat
cold food.
■ Leave them uncovered.
■ Check crispness after 20–30 minutes.
Add time as needed.
IMPORTANT NOTES:
■ Food should be kept hot in its cooking container
or transferred to a heat-safe serving dish.
To use the WARM feature after Timed
Baking or Roasting, follow these steps:
■ For moist foods, cover them with an oven-safe
lid or aluminum foil.
Touch the mode of cooking that
you want to use (BAKE, CONVECTION
BAKE MULTI, CONVECTION BAKE
1 RACK or CONVECTION ROAST).
Touch the number pads to set the
oven temperature.
Touch the COOKING TIME pad.
Touch the number pads to set the
desired length of cooking time.
Touch the START pad.
To Crisp Stale Items
■ Place food in low-sided dishes or pans.
■ For best results, place the food items in
a single layer. Do not stack.
■ Repeated opening of the door allows the hot
air to escape and the food to cool.
■ Allow extra time for the temperature inside
the oven to stabilize after adding items.
■ With large loads it may be necessary to cover
some of the cooked food items.
■ Remove serving spoons, etc., before placing
containers in the oven.
■ Do not use plastic containers, lids or
plastic wrap.
CAUTION:
Plastic containers, lids or
plastic wrap will melt if placed in the oven.
Melted plastic may not be removable and is not
covered under your warranty.

Safety Instructions
The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.
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.
Remove the convection roasting rack,
broiler pan, broiler grid, probe,
all cookware and any aluminum foil
from the oven.
NOTE:
■ If your oven is equipped with shiny, silvercolored oven racks, remove them before
you begin the self-clean cycle.
■ If your oven is equipped with gray porcelaincoated oven racks, they may be left in the
oven during the self-clean cycle.
The shiny, silver-colored oven racks
(on some models) and the convection
roasting rack can be self-cleaned, 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 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.
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.

plastic pad, hot water and detergent. Rinse
well with a vinegar and water solution.
■ If any stain on the door vent trim is persistent,
use a soft abrasive cleaner and a spongescrubber 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.

Oven Racks and Convection Roasting Rack
NOTE: The shiny, silver-colored oven racks (on
some models) and the convection roasting rack
may be cleaned in the self-cleaning oven.
However, the racks will darken in color, lose their
luster and become hard to slide if cleaned during
the self-cleaning cycle.
If your oven is equipped with shiny,
silver-colored oven racks, they should be
removed from the oven before beginning
the self-clean cycle. Clean with an abrasive
cleanser or steel wool. After cleaning,
rinse the racks with clean water and dry
with a clean cloth.
To make the racks slide more easily,
apply a small amount of vegetable oil
to a paper towel and wipe the edges
of the oven racks with the paper towel.
Do not spray with Pam® or other
lubricant sprays.
Care and Cleaning
The convection roasting rack should be
removed from the oven before beginning
the self-clean cycle. Clean with an abrasive
cleanser or steel wool. After cleaning,
rinse the rack with clean water and

Safety Instructions
Operating Instructions
Cleaning the glass cooktop.
Normal Daily Use Cleaning
ONLY use Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner on
the glass cooktop. Other types of cleaners
may not be as effective.
To maintain and protect the surface of
your glass cooktop, follow these steps:
Clean your cooktop after
each spill. Use Ceramic
Cooktop Cleaner.
Before using the cooktop for the
first time, clean it with Ceramic
Cooktop Cleaner. This helps protect
the top and makes cleanup easier.
Daily use of Ceramic Cooktop
Cleaner will help keep the cooktop
looking new.
Use a paper towel for Ceramic
Cooktops to clean the entire
cooktop surface.
Use a dry cloth or paper towel
to remove all cleaning residue.
No need to rinse.
NOTE: It is very important that you DO NOT heat
the cooktop until it has been cleaned thoroughly.
Burned-On Residue
WARNING: DAMAGE to your glass
surface may occur if you use scrub pads other
than those recommended.
Care and Cleaning
Shake the cleaning cream well.
Apply a few drops of Ceramic
Cooktop Cleaner directly to the
cooktop.
Use a Cleaning Pad for Ceramic
Cooktops.
Allow the cooktop to cool.
Spread a few drops of Ceramic
Cooktop Cleaner on the entire
burned residue area.
If any residue remains, repeat the
steps listed above as needed.
For additional protection, after all
residue has been removed, polish
the entire surface with Ceramic
Cooktop Cleaner and a paper towel.
Using the included Cleaning Pad for
Ceramic Cooktops, rub the residue
area, applying pressure as needed.
Allow the cooktop to cool.
The Ceramic Cooktop Scraper and
all recommended supplies are
available through our dealers or
through a Camco Parts Store.
NOTE: Do not use a dull or nicked
blade.
Consumer Support
Troubleshooting Tips
Heavy, Burned-On Residue
34
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 Ceramic
Cooktop Cleaner on the entire
burned residue area. Use the
Cleaning Pad to remove any
remaining residue.
For additional protection, after all
residue has been removed, polish
the entire surface with Ceramic
Cooktop Cleaner and a paper towel.
Metal Marks and Scratches
If pots with a thin overlay of
aluminum or copper are allowed
to boil dry, the overlay may leave
black discoloration on the cooktop.
These marks are removable using
the Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner with
the Cleaning Pad for Ceramic
Cooktops.
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.
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.
Care and Cleaning
Glass surface—potential for permanent damage.
Damage from Sugary Spills and Melted Plastic
Turn off all surface units. Remove
hot pans.
Wearing an oven mitt:
a. Use a single-edge razor blade
scraper to move the spill to
a cool area on the cooktop.
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.
b. Remove the spill with paper
towels.
Any remaining spillover should be
left until the surface of the cooktop
has cooled.
Troubleshooting Tips
Sugary spillovers (such as
jellies, fudge, candy, syrups)
or melted plastics can cause
pitting of the surface of your
cooktop (not covered by the
warranty) unless the spill
is removed while still hot.
Special care should be
taken when removing hot
substances.
Be sure to use a new, sharp
razor scraper.
Do not use a dull or nicked
blade.
Operating Instructions
Be careful not to slide pots and pans
across your cooktop. It will leave
metal markings on the cooktop
surface.
