WARNING!
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
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 birth defects or other reproductive harm, and
requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Have the installer show you the location of the range gas shut-off valve and how to shut it off if necessary.
■ Do not attempt to repair or replace any
part of your range unless it is specifically
recommended in this manual. All other
service should be referred to a qualified
technician.
■ Plug your range into a 120-volt grounded
outlet only. Do not remove the round
grounding prong from the plug. If in doubt
about the grounding of the home electrical
system, it is your personal responsibility and
obligation to have an ungrounded outlet
replaced with a properly grounded,
three-prong outlet in accordance with
the National Electrical Code. Do not use
an extension cord with this appliance.
Installation Instructions
■ Have your range installed and properly
grounded by a qualified installer, in
accordance with the Installation Instructions.
Any adjustment and service should be
performed only by qualified gas range
installers or service technicians.
Operating Instructions
Gas appliances can cause minor exposure to four of these substances, namely benzene, carbon
monoxide, formaldehyde and soot, caused primarily by the incomplete combustion of natural gas or
LP fuels. Properly adjusted burners, indicated by a bluish rather than a yellow flame, will minimize
incomplete combustion. Exposure to these substances can be minimized by venting with an open
window or using a ventilation fan or hood.

Troubleshooting Tips
■ After prolonged use of a range, high floor
temperatures may result and many floor
coverings will not withstand this kind of use.
Never install the range over vinyl tile or
linoleum that cannot withstand such type
of use. Never install it directly over interior
kitchen carpeting.
■ Do not leave children alone or unattended
where a range is hot or in operation.
They could be seriously burned.
■ Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang
on the oven door, lower oven drawer,
warming drawer or cooktop. They could
damage the range and even tip it over,
causing severe personal injury.
■
CAUTION: Items of interest to
Consumer Support
children should not be stored in cabinets
above a range or on the backsplash of a
range—children climbing on the range to
reach items could be seriously injured.
WARNING: NEVER use this
appliance as a space heater to heat or
warm the room. Doing so may result
in carbon monoxide poisoning and
overheating of the oven.
4
■ Never wear loose fitting or hanging garments
while using the appliance. Be careful when
reaching for items stored in cabinets over the
range. Flammable material could be ignited
if brought in contact with flame or hot oven
surfaces and may cause severe burns.
■ Do not store flammable materials in an
oven, a range drawer or near a cooktop.
■ Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
■ Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
■ Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick
up a flaming pan. Turn the controls off.
Smother a flaming pan on a surface burner
by covering the pan completely with
a well-fitting lid, cookie 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 upper oven or lower oven
drawer can be smothered completely by
closing the oven door or drawer and turning
the control to off or by using a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type fire
extinguisher.
■ Let the burner grates and other surfaces
cool before touching them or leaving them
where children can reach them.
■ Never block the vents (air openings) of the
range. They provide the air inlet and outlet
that are necessary for the range to operate
properly with correct combustion. Air
openings are located at the rear of the
cooktop, at the top and bottom of the oven
door, and at the bottom of the range under
the warming drawer, lower oven drawer or
kick panel.
■ Large scratches or impacts to glass doors
can lead to broken or shattered glass.
WARNING!
SURFACE BURNERS
Consumer Support
5
Troubleshooting Tips
■ When flaming foods are under the hood,
turn the fan off. The fan, if operating, may
spread the flames.
■ Do not use a wok on the cooking surface
if the wok has a round metal ring that is
placed over the burner grate to support the
wok. This ring acts as a heat trap, which may
damage the burner grate and burner head.
Also, it may cause the burner to work
improperly. This may cause a carbon
monoxide level above that allowed by
current standards, resulting in a health
hazard.
■ 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.
■ Never try to move a pan of hot fat, especially
a deep fat fryer. Wait until the fat is cool.
■ Do not leave plastic items on the cooktop—
they may melt if left too close to the vent.
■ Keep all plastics away from the surface
burners.
■ To avoid the possibility of a burn, always be
certain that the controls for all burners are
at the OFF position and all grates are cool
before attempting to remove them.
■ If range is located near a window, do not
hang long curtains that could blow over the
surface burners and create a fire hazard.
■ If you smell gas, turn off the gas to the range
and call a qualified service technician. Never
use an open flame to locate a leak.
■ Always turn the surface burner controls off
before removing cookware.
■ Do not lift the cooktop. Lifting the cooktop
can lead to damage and improper operation
of the range.
Installation Instructions
■ Always use the LITE position when igniting
the top burners and make sure the burners
have ignited.
■ Never leave the surface burners unattended
at high flame settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
■ Adjust the top burner flame size so it
does not extend beyond the edge of the
cookware. Excessive flame is hazardous.
■ Use only dry pot holders— moist or damp
pot holders on hot surfaces may result in
burns from steam. Do not let pot holders
come near open flames when lifting
cookware. Do not use a towel or other bulky
cloth in place of a pot holder.
■ When using glass cookware, make sure it
is designed for top-of-range cooking.
■ To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition
of flammable materials and spillage, turn
cookware handles toward the side or back
of the range without extending over
adjacent burners.
■ Carefully watch foods being fried at a high
flame setting.
■ Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
■ 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.
■ If a combination of oils or fats will be used
in frying, stir together before heating or
as fats melt slowly.
■ Use a deep fat thermometer whenever
possible to prevent overheating fat beyond
the smoking point.
■ Use the least possible amount of fat for
effective shallow or deep-fat frying. Filling
the pan too full of fat can cause spillovers
when food is added.
Operating Instructions
Use proper pan size—avoid pans that are unstable or easily tipped. Select cookware having flat bottoms
large enough to cover burner grates. To avoid spillovers, make sure cookware is large enough to contain
the food properly. This will both save cleaning time and prevent hazardous accumulations of food, since
heavy spattering or spillovers left on range can ignite. Use pans with handles that can be easily grasped
and remain cool.
Safety Instructions

ELECTRIC WARMING DRAWER
AND LOWER OVEN DRAWER (on some models)
■ The purpose of the warming drawer and
the the WARM ZONE setting of the lower
oven drawer is to hold hot cooked foods at
serving temperature. Always start with hot
food; cold food cannot be heated or cooked
in the warming drawer or the WARM ZONE
setting of the lower oven drawer.
■ Do not use the drawer to dry newspapers. If
overheated, they can catch on fire.
■ Do not leave paper products, plastics,
canned food, or combustible materials in
the drawer.
■ Never leave jars or cans of fat drippings in
or near your drawer.
■ Do not warm food in the drawer for more
than two hours.
■ Never place, use or self-clean the lower oven
drawer pan in the upper oven.

Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
■ Do not touch the heating element or the
interior surface of the drawer. These
surfaces may be hot enough to burn.
REMEMBER: The inside surface of the
drawer may be hot when the drawer
is opened.
■ Use care when opening the drawer. Open
the drawer a crack and let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
Hot air or steam which escapes can cause
burns to hands, face and/or eyes.
■ Do not use aluminum foil to line the lower
oven drawer. Foil is an excellent heat
insulator and will trap heat beneath it. This
will upset the performance of the drawer
and it could damage the interior finish.
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.
Troubleshooting Tips
SELF-CLEANING THE UPPER OVEN
Consumer Support
■ Be sure to wipe off excess spillage before
self-cleaning operation.
■ Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the
broiler pan, broiler grid, all cookware,
probe and any aluminum foil.
■ Never place, use or self-clean the lower oven
drawer pan in the upper oven.
■ Nickel oven shelves (on some models)
should be removed from the oven before
beginning the self-clean cycle.
■ Gray porcelain-coated oven shelves (on some
models) may be cleaned in the oven during
the self-clean cycle.
■ Clean only parts listed in this Owner’s
Manual.
6
■ 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.
■ If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions,
turn the oven off and disconnect the power
supply. Have it serviced by a qualified
technician.
■ Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial
oven cleaner or oven liner 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.
UPPER OVEN
Stand away from the range when opening the door of a hot oven. The hot air and steam that escape can
cause burns to hands, face and eyes.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ Do not use aluminum foil anywhere in the
oven except as described in this manual.
Misuse could result in a fire hazard or
damage to the range.
■ When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
Installation Instructions
WARNING:
NEVER cover any
slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom
or cover an entire rack with materials such
as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow
through the oven and may cause carbon
monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings
may also trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
■ Do not use your oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch fire.
■ Use only glass cookware that is
recommended for use in gas ovens.
■ Always remove the broiler pan from range as
soon as you finish broiling. Grease left in the
pan can catch fire if oven is used without
removing the grease from the broiler pan.
■ When broiling, if meat is too close to the
flame, the fat may ignite. Trim excess fat to
prevent excessive flare-ups.
■ Make sure the broiler pan is in place
correctly to reduce the possibility of
grease fires.
■ If you should have a grease fire in the broiler
pan, press the CLEAR/OFF pad, and keep
the oven door closed to contain fire until
it burns out.
■ For safety and proper cooking performance,
always bake and broil with the oven door
closed.
■ Never place, use or self-clean the lower oven
drawer pan in the upper oven.
Operating Instructions
■ Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in the oven can ignite.
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
■ Place the oven shelves in the desired
position while the oven is cool.
■ 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. The
lowest position is not designed to slide.
■ Do not heat unopened food containers.
Pressure could build up and the container
could burst, causing an injury.

a wide range of cooking applications.
Troubleshooting Tips
Consumer Support
Before Lighting a Gas Burner
■ Make sure all grates on the range are
properly placed before using any burner.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
Using the gas surface burners.
The smallest burner in the right rear
position is the simmer burner. This burner
can be turned down to LO for a very low
simmer setting. It provides precise cooking
performance for delicate foods such as
sauces or foods that require low heat for a
long cooking time.
The medium (left rear) and the large
(left front) burners are the primary burners
for most cooking. These general-purpose
burners can be turned down from HI to LO
to suit a wide range of cooking needs.
The extra large burner (right front) is the
maximum output burner. Like the other
four burners, it can be turned down
from HI to LO for a wide range of cooking
applications; however, this burner is
designed to quickly bring large amounts of
liquid to a boil. It has a special POWER BOIL™
setting designed to be used with cookware
10 inches or larger in diameter.
The center oval burner is the largest in
size and is for large oval pots/pans, round
pots/pans 10” or greater in diameter or
with the griddle.
Extra-large burners only
How to Select Flame Size
For safe handling of cookware, never let the flames
extend up the sides of the cookware.
8
Watch the flame, not the knob, as you
reduce heat. When fast heating is desired,
the flame size on a gas burner should
match the cookware you are using.
Flames larger than the bottom of the
cookware will not result in faster heating of
the cookware and could be hazardous.
Top-of-Range Cookware
Aluminum: Medium-weight cookware is
recommended because it heats quickly
and evenly. Most foods brown evenly in an
aluminum skillet. Use saucepans with tightfitting lids when cooking with minimum
amounts of water.
Enamelware: Under some conditions,
the enamel of some cookware may melt.
Follow cookware manufacturer’s
recommendations for cooking methods.
Heatproof Glass Ceramic: Can be used for
either surface or oven cooking. It conducts
heat very slowly and cools very slowly. Check
cookware manufacturer’s directions to be
sure it can be used on gas ranges.
Stainless Steel: This metal alone has poor
heating properties and is usually combined
with copper, aluminum or other metals for
improved heat distribution. Combination
metal skillets usually work satisfactorily if
they are used with medium heat as the
manufacturer recommends.
Installation Instructions
Stove Top Grills
Do not use stove top grills on your sealed
gas burners. If you use the stove top grill
on the sealed gas burner, it will cause
incomplete combustion and can result
in exposure to carbon monoxide levels
above allowable current standards.
This can be hazardous to your health.
Wok This Way
Only a flat-bottomed wok should be used.
Do not use a wok support ring. Placing the
ring over the burner or grate may cause the
burner to work improperly, resulting in
carbon monoxide levels above allowable
standards. This could be dangerous to
your health.
Troubleshooting Tips
Use a flat-bottomed wok.
We recommend that you use a 14-inch or smaller
flat-bottomed wok. Make sure the wok bottom sits
flat on the grate. They are available at your local
retail store.
Operating Instructions
Cast-Iron: If heated slowly, most skillets will
give satisfactory results.
Glass: There are two types of glass
cookware—those for oven use only and
those for top-of-range cooking (saucepans,
coffee and teapots). Glass conducts heat
very slowly.

To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the desired position before you turn the oven on.
Before you begin…
The shelves have stop-locks, so that when
placed correctly on the shelf supports (A
through E), they will stop before coming
completely out, and will not tilt.
To replace, place the end of the shelf (stoplocks) on the support, tilt up the front and
push the shelf in.
NOTE: The shelf is not designed to slide out at the
special low shelf (R) position.
The oven has 5 shelf positions.
It also has a special low shelf
position (R) for extra large items,
such as a large turkey.
Upper Oven Vent
■ Handles of pots and pans on the cooktop may
become hot if left too close to the vent.
■ Do not leave plastic or flammable items on the
cooktop—they may melt or ignite if left too close
to the vent.
■ Do not leave closed containers on the cooktop.
The pressure in closed containers may increase,
which may cause them to burst.
■ Metal items will become very hot if they are left
on the cooktop, and could cause burns.
Power Outage
The oven or broiler cannot be lit during a
power failure. Gas will not flow unless the
glow bar is hot.
If the oven is in use when a power failure
occurs, the oven burner shuts off and
cannot be re-lit until power is restored. This
is because the flow of gas is automatically
stopped and will not resume when power is
restored until the glow bar has reached
operating temperature.
Upper Oven Light
Touch the OVEN LIGHT pad on the upper

Installation Instructions
Plastic items on the cooktop may
melt if left too close to the vent.
Vent appearance and location vary.
Your oven is vented through ducts at the
rear of the range. Do not block these ducts
when cooking in the oven—it is important
that the flow of hot air from the oven and
fresh air to the oven burner be
uninterrupted. Avoid touching the vent
openings or nearby surfaces during oven or
broiler operation—they may become hot.

Preheating and Pan Placement
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it.
To preheat, set the oven at the correct
temperature. Preheating is necessary
when convection baking and for good
results when baking cakes, cookies, pastry
and breads.
For ovens without a preheat indicator light or tone,
preheat 10 minutes.
Baking results will be better if baking pans
are centered in the oven as much as
possible. Pans should not touch each other
or the walls of the oven. If you need to use
two shelves, stagger the pans so one is not
directly above the other, and leave
approximately 11⁄2″ between pans, from
the front, back and sides of the wall.
Aluminum Foil
Never cover the oven bottom with
aluminum foil.
Cut slits in the foil just like the grid.
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.

Using the upper oven.
As your oven heats up, the temperature
change of the air in the oven may cause
water droplets to form on the door glass.
These droplets are harmless and will
evaporate as the oven continues to heat up.

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 Upper Oven for Broiling
Touch the START pad.
Place the meat or fish on the broiler
grid in the broiler pan.
Always use the broiler pan and grid
that came with your oven. It is
designed to minimize smoking and
spattering by trapping juices in the
shielded lower part of the pan.
Follow suggested shelf positions in the
Broiling Guide.
The oven door must be closed during
broiling.
To change to LO Broil, touch the BROIL
HI/LO pad again.
Serve the food immediately, and leave the
pan outside the oven to cool during the
meal for easiest cleaning.
Use LO Broil to cook foods such as poultry
or thick cuts of meat thoroughly without
over-browning them.

For many foods, especially roasts and poultry, internal food temperature is the best test for doneness. The temperature
probe takes the guesswork out of cooking foods to the exact doneness you want.
Use of probes other than the one provided

■ Never leave your probe inside the oven during
a self-cleaning cycle.
■ To avoid breaking the probe, make sure food is
completely defrosted before inserting.
■ Do not store the probe in the oven.
■ To prevent possible burns, do not unplug the
probe from the outlet until the oven has cooled.
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 completely into the meat.
It should not touch the bone, fat or gristle.

Using the convection oven. (on some models)
The convection oven fan shuts off when the oven door is opened. DO NOT leave the door open for long periods of time
while using convection cooking.
To help you understand the difference
between convection bake and roast and
traditional bake and roast, here are some
general guidelines.
Grid
■ Preheat the oven. See the Using the Oven–
Preheating and Pan Placement section.
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 than with regular
heat.
■ Ideal for foods cooked on multiple shelves.
■ Good for large quantities of baked foods.
■ Good results with cookies, biscuits, brownies,
cupcakes, cream puffs, sweet rolls, angel food
cake and bread.
The convection fan circulates the heated
air evenly over and around the food.
Convection Roast
■ Good for large tender cuts of meat, uncovered.
Installation Instructions
Operating Instructions
Convection Bake
The convection fan circulates the heated
air evenly over and around the food. Using
the grid and broiler pan provided, heated
air will be circulated over 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.
Broiler pan
Roasts or poultry should be cooked on shelf
position (A).
When you are convection roasting it is
important that you use the broiler pan and
grid for best convection roasting results.
The pan is used to catch grease spills and
the grid is used to prevent grease spatters.
■ Place the shelf in shelf position (A).
■ Place the grid on the broiler pan.
Troubleshooting Tips
Auto Recipe™ Conversion
You can use your favorite recipes in the
convection oven.
When using CONVECTION BAKE, the oven will
automatically convert the oven temperature from
regular baking to Convection Bake temperatures.
Using the number pads, enter
the temperature recommended
in the recipe.
Touch the START pad.
Consumer Support
The display will show the
temperature you entered from your
recipe. The oven will automatically
convert it to the convection cooking
temperature.
20
Touch the CLEAR/OFF pad when
baking is finished.
■ Use pan size recommended in the recipe.
■ Some package instructions for frozen
casseroles, main dishes or baked goods have
been developed using commercial convection
ovens. For best results in this oven, preheat the
oven and use the temperature, for regular
baking, on the package.
Cookware for Convection Cooking
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
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.
When baking cookies, you will get the best
results if you use a flat cookie sheet instead
of a pan with low sides.
For recipes like oven-baked chicken,
use a pan with low sides. Hot air cannot
circulate well around food in a pan with
high sides.
Touch the CONVECTION BAKE or
CONVECTION ROAST pad.
Touch the number pads to set the
desired oven temperature.
Touch the START pad.
To change the oven temperature, touch the
CONVECTION BAKE or CONVECTION ROAST
pad and then the number pads to set the

When the oven starts to heat the changing
temperature, starting at 100°F, will be
displayed. When the oven reaches the
temperature you set, 3 beeps will sound.
Touch the CLEAR/OFF pad when
finished.
NOTE: 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.
The fan will not start until the preheat temperature
is reached.
Troubleshooting Tips
Multi-Shelf Baking
The number of shelves provided depends on your
model.
Because heated air is circulated evenly
throughout the oven, foods can be baked
with excellent results using multiple shelves.
Multi-shelf baking may increase cook times
slightly for some foods but the overall result
is time saved. Cookies, muffins, biscuits and
other quick breads give very good results
with multi-shelf baking.

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.
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.
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.

Griddle Precautions:
■ Wash with hot, soapy water after each use while
using a sponge or dishcloth.
■ Do not allow grease to accumulate under the
griddle as it can be a fire hazard. Clean under the
griddle as soon as it is cool. Clean with hot soapy
water.
■ If oil or food residue is left on the griddle,
further cooking will harden the residue and cause
sticking over time. In this case, use a non-abrasive
cleanser such as Bon Ami® or one of the soft
scrub cleansers. Apply with a sponge, Scrunge®
or other cleaning pad labeled safe for nonstick pans
■ If something has spilled under the griddle, it
should be cleaned up as soon as possible to
prevent “baked on” food soil.
■ Do not place your griddle in the microwave.
■ Always turn off all surface burners before
removing the griddle. Use caution when handling
a hot griddle.

Cleaning
To get rid of burned-on food, place the
grates in a covered container. Add 1/4 cup
ammonia and let them soak several hours
or overnight. Wash, rinse well and dry.
Although they are durable, the grates will
gradually lose their shine, regardless of the
best care you can give them. This is due
to their continual exposure to high
temperatures. You will notice this
sooner with lighter color grates.
NOTE: Do not clean the grates in a self-cleaning
oven.
Cooktop Surface
To avoid damaging the porcelain enamel
surface of the cooktop and to prevent it
from becoming dull, clean up spills right
away. Foods with a lot of acid (tomatoes,
sauerkraut, fruit juices, etc.) or foods with
high sugar content could cause a dull spot if
allowed to set.
NOTE: Do not lift the cooktop. Lifting the cooktop
can lead to damage and improper operation of the
range.
Stainless Steel Surfaces (on some models)
Do not use a steel-wool pad; it will scratch
the surface.
Shake bottle well.
Clean a small area (approximately
8″ x 8″), rubbing with the grain of
the stainless steel if applicable.

etc., wash with soap and water once the
surface has cooled. Then rinse and polish
with a dry cloth.
NOTE: Do not store flammable materials in
an oven, drawer, or near the cooktop. Do not
store or use combustible materials, gasoline or
other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance.
Installation Instructions
Lift out when cool. Grates should be
washed regularly and, of course, after
spillovers. Wash them in hot, soapy water
and rinse with clean water. When replacing
the grates, be sure they are positioned
securely over the burners. Replace the
grates so that continuous arcs are formed
with the center ribs of all three grates.
Do not operate a burner for an extended
period of time without cookware on the
grate. The finish on the grate may chip
without cookware to absorb the heat.
Operating Instructions
The grates may be cleaned in a
dishwasher.
Your range has three professional-style
double grates. These grates are positionspecific. For maximum stability, these grates
should only be used in their proper
position; they cannot be interchanged left
to right or front to back. For convenience,
the undersides of the left and right grates
are marked “LEFT FRONT” and “RIGHT
FRONT.” Make sure the front portion of
both grates is in front. The middle grate has
a bow in front. Make sure the bowed
portion is towards the front of the range.

Oven Air Vents
Never block the vents (air openings) of the
range. They provide the air inlet and outlet
that are necessary for the range to operate
properly with correct combustion.
Vent appearance and location vary.
Air openings are located at the rear of
the cooktop, at the top and bottom of the
oven door, and at the bottom of the range,
under the warming drawer or lower
oven drawer.
Upper Control Panel
On models so equipped, lock out the touch
pads before cleaning.

Metal parts can be cleaned with soap and
water. Do not use steel wool, abrasives,
ammonia, acids or commercial oven
cleaners. Dry with a soft cloth.
NOTE: The lower oven drawer control knob is not
interchangeable with the surface burner knobs. Be
sure to reinstall the lower oven drawer knob to the
original location. The lower oven drawer knob may
be identified by the red line. Surface burner knobs
have a white line.
Lift-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
the special stop position that will hold the
door open. Grasp firmly on each side and
lift the door straight up and off the hinges.
Lift the door straight up and off the
hinges.
To replace the door, make sure the hinges
are in the special stop 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. If the hinges snap back against the
oven frame, pull them back out.
To clean the inside 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.
■ Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato
sauces and basting materials containing
acids may cause discoloration and should
be wiped up immediately. When the
surface is cool, clean and rinse.
■ Do not use oven cleaners, cleansing
powders or harsh abrasives on the
outside of the door.
■ Do not allow excess water to run into
any holes or slots in the 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.
Oven Bottom
Grid
To clean up spillovers, use soap and water,
an abrasive cleaner or soap-filled scouring
pad. Rinse well to remove any soap before
self-cleaning.
Broiler Pan and Grid
If food has burned on, sprinkle the grid
with detergent while hot and cover with wet
paper towels or a dishcloth. Soaking the
pan will remove burned-on foods.
The broiler pan and grid may be cleaned
with a commercial oven cleaner.
Both the broiler pan and grid can also be
cleaned in a dishwasher.
Do not store a soiled broiler pan and grid
anywhere in the range.
CAUTION: Do not clean the broiler pan or grid in
a self-cleaning oven.
39
Consumer Support
After broiling, remove the broiler pan from
the oven. Remove the grid from the pan.
Carefully pour out grease from the pan into
a proper container. Wash and rinse the
broiler pan and grid in hot water with a
soap-filled or plastic scouring pad.
Pan
We don’t recommend using aluminum foil
on the oven bottom. It can affect air flow if
the holes are blocked and it can concentrate
heat at the bottom of the oven, resulting in
poor baking performance.
Troubleshooting Tips
The oven bottom has a porcelain enamel
finish. To make cleaning easier, protect the
oven bottom from excessive spillovers by
placing a cookie sheet on the shelf below
the shelf you are cooking on. This is
particularly important when baking a fruit
pie or other foods with a high acid content.
Hot fruit fillings or other foods that are
highly acidic (such as tomatoes, sauerkraut
and sauces with vinegar or lemon juice)
may cause pitting and damage to the
porcelain enamel surface and should be
wiped up immediately.
Installation Instructions
The gasket is designed with a gap
at the bottom to allow for proper air

WARNING!
ANTI-TIP DEVICE
LOCATION
Do not locate the range where it may be subject to
strong drafts. Any openings in the floor or wall behind
the range should be sealed. Make sure the openings
around the base of the range that supply fresh air for
combustion and ventilation are not obstructed by
carpeting or woodwork.
All ranges can tip and injury could
result.
To prevent accidental tipping of the range,
attach an approved Anti-Tip device to the
wall. (See Installing the Anti-Tip Device in
this section.) To check if the device is
installed and engaged properly, carefully
tip the range forward. The Anti-Tip device
should engage and prevent the range from
tipping over.
Your range, like many other household items, is
heavy and can settle into soft floor coverings such as
cushioned vinyl or carpeting. Use care when moving
the range on this type of flooring. It is recommended
that the following simple and inexpensive instructions
be followed to protect your floor.
The range should be installed on a sheet of plywood
(or similar material). When the floor covering ends at
the front of the range, the area that the range will rest
on should be built up with plywood to the same level
or higher than the floor covering.
If you pull the range out from the wall for
any reason, make sure the Anti-Tip device
is engaged when you push the range back
against the wall.
■ For your safety, never use your range for warming
or heating the room. Your oven and cooktop are
not designed to heat your kitchen. Top burners
should not be operated without cookware on the
grate. Such abuse could result in fire and damage
to your range and will void your warranty.
This will allow the range to be moved for cleaning
or servicing. Also, make sure your floor covering will
withstand 180°F. (See the Installation Safety Instructions
section.)
Make sure the wall coverings around your range can
withstand the heat generated (up to 200°F) by the
range. (See the Installation Safety Instructions section.)
■ Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids
in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
Explosions or fires could result.
■ Do not use oven for a storage area. Items stored in
the oven can ignite.
IMPORTANT!
■ Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
Remove all tape and packaging. Make sure the
burners are properly seated and level.
Take the accessory pack out of the oven and/or
drawer.
Check to be sure that no range parts have come loose
during shipping.

Installation Instructions
1 PROVIDE ADEQUATE GAS
2 CONNECT THE RANGE TO GAS
SUPPLY
Shut off the main gas supply valve before disconnecting
the old range and leave it off until the new hook-up has
been completed. Don’t forget to relight the pilot on
other gas appliances when you turn the gas back on.
Your range is designed to operate at a pressure of 5″ of
water column on natural gas or, if designed for LP gas
(propane or butane), 10 ″ of water column.
Because hard piping restricts movement of the range,
the use of a CSA International-certified flexible metal
appliance connector is recommended unless local
codes require a hard-piped connection.
Make sure you are supplying your range with the type
of gas for which it is designed.
This range is convertible for use on natural or
propane gas. If you decide to use this range on LP gas,
conversion must be made by a qualified LP installer
before attempting to operate the range on that gas.
Never use an old connector when installing a new
range. If the hard piping method is used, you must
carefully align the pipe; the range cannot be moved
after the connection is made.
For proper operation, the pressure of natural gas
supplied to the regulator must be between 5″ and 13″
of water column.
To prevent gas leaks, put pipe joint compound on, or
wrap pipe thread tape with Teflon* around, all male
(external) pipe threads.
For LP gas, the pressure supplied must be between 10″
and 13″ of water column.
A. Install a manual gas line shut-off valve in the gas line
in an easily accessed location outside of the range.
Make sure everyone operating the range knows
where and how to shut off the gas supply to the
range.
When checking for proper operation of the regulator,
the inlet pressure must be at least 1″ greater than the
operating (manifold) pressure as given above.
The pressure regulator located at the inlet of the range
manifold must remain in the supply line regardless of
whether natural or LP gas is being used.
B. Install male 1/2″ flare union adapter to the 1/2″
NPT internal thread at inlet of regulator. Use a
backup wrench on the regulator fitting to avoid
damage.
A flexible metal appliance connector used to connect
the range to the gas supply line should have an I.D. of
1/2″ and be 5 feet in length for ease of installation. In
Canada, flexible connectors must be single wall metal
connectors no longer than 6 feet in length.
When installing the range from the front, remove
the 90° elbow for easier installation.
C. Install male 1/2″ or 3/4″ flare union adapter to the
NPT internal thread of the manual shut-off valve,
taking care to back-up the shut-off valve to keep it
from turning.
D. Connect flexible metal appliance connector to the
adapter on the range. Position range to permit
connection at the shut-off valve.
E. When all connections have been made, make sure
all range controls are in the off position and turn on
the main gas supply valve. Use a liquid leak detector
at all joints and connections to check for leaks in the
system.
WARNING: DO NOT USE A
FLAME TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.
When using test pressures greater than 1/2 psig to
pressure test the gas supply system of the residence,
disconnect the range and individual shut-off valve from
the gas supply piping. When using test pressures of 1/2
psig or less to test the gas supply system, simply isolate
the range from the gas supply system by closing the
individual shut-off valve.

Electrical Requirements
120-volt, 60 Hertz, properly grounded dedicated circuit
protected by a 15-amp or 20-amp circuit breaker or
time delay fuse.
A. Usage Situations where Appliance Power Cord will
be Disconnected Infrequently.
An adapter may be used only on a 15-amp circuit.
Do not use an adapter on a 20-amp circuit. Where
local codes permit, a TEMPORARY CONNECTION
may be made to a properly grounded two-prong wall
receptacle by the use of a UL-listed adapter, available
at most hardware stores. The larger slot in the adapter
must be aligned with the larger slot in the wall
receptacle to provide proper polarity in the
connection of the power cord.
Extension Cord Cautions
Because of potential safety hazards associated
with certain conditions, we strongly recommend against
the use of an extension cord. However, if you still elect
to use an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that
it be a UL-listed, 3-wire grounding-type appliance
extension cord and that the current carrying rating of
the cord in amperes be equivalent to, or greater than,
the circuit rating.

CAUTION: Attaching the adapter

ground terminal to the wall receptacle cover
screw does not ground the appliance unless
the cover screw is metal, and not insulated,
and the wall receptacle is grounded through
the house wiring. The customer should have
the circuit checked by a qualified electrician
to make sure the receptacle is properly
grounded.
The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a
three-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a
standard three-prong grounding wall receptacle to
minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from
this appliance.
The customer should have the wall receptacle and
circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure
the receptacle is properly grounded.
Where a standard two-prong wall receptacle is
encountered, it is the personal responsibility and
obligation of the customer to have it replaced with a
properly grounded three-prong wall receptacle.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES,
CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND) PRONG
FROM THE POWER CORD.
A word about GFCI’s – GFCI’s are not required or
recommended for gas range receptacles.
When disconnecting the power cord from the adapter,
always hold the adapter with one hand. If this is not
done, the adapter ground terminal is very likely to
break with repeated use. Should this happen, DO
NOT USE the appliance until a proper ground
has again been established.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI’s) are
devices that sense leakage of current in a circuit and
automatically switch off power when a threshold
leakage level is detected. These devices must be
manually reset by the consumer. The National Electrical
Code requires the use of GFCI’s in kitchen receptacles
installed to serve countertop surfaces. Performance of
the range will not be affected if operated on a GFCIprotected circuit but occasional nuisance tripping of
the GFCI breaker is possible.

A Assemble the side burners as shown.
B. Usage Situations where Appliance Power Cord will
be Disconnected Frequently.
Do not use an adapter plug in these situations because
disconnecting of the power cord places undue strain on
the adapter and leads to eventual failure of the adapter
ground terminal. The customer should have the twoprong wall receptacle replaced with a three-prong
(grounding) receptacle by a qualified electrician
before using the appliance.

7 CHECK IGNITION OF OVEN BURNER
6 CHECK IGNITION OF SURFACE
BURNERS
The oven is designed to operate quietly and automatically.
To operate the oven, press the BAKE pad and then press the
number pads until 350° appears in the display. Touch the
START pad. After 30–90 seconds, the oven burner will ignite
and burn until the set temperature is reached. The oven
burner will continue to cycle on and off as necessary to
maintain the oven at the temperature indicated by the display.
Operation of all cooktop and oven burners should be
checked after the range and gas supply lines have been
carefully checked for leaks.
Electric Ignition Models
Select a top burner knob and simultaneously push
in and turn to LITE position. You will hear a clicking
sound indicating proper operation of the spark
module. Once the air has been purged from the
supply lines, burners should light within 4 seconds.
After burner lights, rotate knob out of the LITE
position. Try each burner in succession until all
burners have been checked.
To check ignition of the broil burner, touch the BROIL
HI/LO pad and then the START pad. After 30–90 seconds,
the broil burner will ignite.
Electric ignition models require electrical power to operate.
In case of a power outage, the oven burners on these models
cannot be lit manually with a match. Gas will not flow unless
the glow bar is hot.
Quality of Flames
If the oven is in use when a power outage occurs, the burner
will shut off and cannot be re-lit until power is restored.
The combustion quality of burner flames needs to be
determined visually.
(A) Yellow flames—
Call for service
(B) Yellow tips on
outer cones—
Normal for LP gas
(C) Soft blue
flames—Normal for
natural gas
If burner flames look like (A), call for service. Normal
burner flames should look like (B) or (C), depending
on the type of gas you use.
With LP gas, some yellow tipping on outer cones
is normal.

from the top or the bottom.
The flames for the top (broil) burner should be steady
with approximately 1″ blue cones and should not
extend out over the edges of the burner baffle.
D. Use an open-end or adjustable wrench to adjust the
leveling legs until the range is level.
E. After the range is level, slide the range away from the
wall so that the Anti-Tip device can be installed.
To determine if the bottom burner flames are burning
properly, remove the oven bottom. Flames should have
approximately 1″ blue cones and, if range is supplied
with natural gas, should burn with no yellow tipping.
(With most LP gas, small yellow tips at the end of outer
cones are normal.) Flames should not lift off burner
ports. If lifting is observed, gradually reduce air shutter
opening until flames are stabilized.
