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 cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn
customers of potential exposure to such substances.
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.
When You at Your Range
Have the installer show you the location of the
●
range gas cut-off valve and how to shut it off
if necessary.
Q 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.
●
●
●
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, threeprong outlet in accordance with the National
Electrical Code. In Canada, the appliance must be
electrically grounded in accordance with the
Canadian Electrical Code. Do not use an extension
cord with this appliance.
Be sure au packing materbds are removed from
the range before operating it to prevent fire or
smoke damage should the packing material ignite.
Locate range out of kitchen traffic path
and out of drafty locations to prevent poor
air circulation.
c Be sure your range is correctly adjusted by a
qualified service technician or installer for the
type of gas (natural or LP) that is to be used.
Your range can be converted for use with either
type of gas. See Installation Instructions.
●
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.
Using Your Range
●
●
Don’t leave chtidren alone or unattended where
a range is hot or in operation, They could be
seriously burned.
Don’t allow anyone to climb, sbnd or hang on
the door, storage or broiler drawer (on models
so equipped) or range top. They could damage
the range and even tip it over, causing severe
personal injury.
“ CAUTION: ITEMS OF INTEREST TO
CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE STORED IN
CABINETS ABOVE A RANGE OR ON THE
BACKSPLASH OF A WNGHHILDREN
CLIMBING ON THE RANGE TO REACH
ITEMS COULD BE SERIOUSLY INJURED.
WARNING–A1l
ranges can tip and injury
could result. To prevent accidenhl tipping of the
range, attach an approved Anti-Tip
device to the wall. (See Installation
Instructions.) 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.
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.
●
●
Let burner grates and other surfaces cool
before touching them or leaving them where
children can reach them,
Never wear loose fitting or hanging garments
while using the appliance. Be careful when
reaching for items stored in cabinets over the
cooktop, Flammable material could be ignited if
brought in contact with flame or hot oven surfaces
and may cause severe burns.

WORTANT SAFETY ~STRUCTIONS
(continued)
●
For your safety, never use your appliance for
warming or heating the room.
c Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up
a flaming pan. Turn off burner, then smother
flaming pan by covering pan
“J
completely with well-fitting lid, cookie
e sheet or flat tray. Flaming grease outside
a pan can be put out by covering with
baking soda or, if available, a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
Do not store flammable materials in an oven,
a range storage 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.
When cooking pork, follow the directions
exactly and always cook the meat to an internal
temperature of at least 170°F. This assures that, in
the remote possibility that trichina may be present
in the meat, it will be killed and the meat will be
safe to eat.
Surface Cooking
●
c Always turn surface burner to OFF before
removing cookware.
Always use the LITE position when
igniting top burners and make sure the
burners have ignited.
Never leave surface burners unattended at
high flame settings. Boilover causes smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
●
●
●
Adjust 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
cookw-are. Do not use a towel
or other bulky cloth in place of a
pot holder.
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.
4
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 kick panel, storage drawer or broiler
drawer (depending on the model).
Do not use a wok on models with sealed burners
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.
c Foods for frying should be as dry as possible.
Frost on frozen foods or moisture on fresh foods
can cause hot fat to bubble up and over sides
of pan.
●
●
Carefully watch foods being fried at a high
flame setting.
●
Use 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.
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.
Use proper pan siz+Avoid pans that are
unstable or easily tipped. Select cookware having
flat bottoms large enough to properly contain food
and avoid boilovers and spillovers and large
enough to cover burner grate. 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.
When using @ass cookware, make sure it is
designed for top-of-range cooking.
. Keep all plastics away from top burners.
●
Do not leave plastic
items on the
cookto~ they may
melt if left too close to
the vent.
. Use only glass cookware that is recommended
for use in gas ovens.
●
Vent appearance and Iocation-vay
Q Do not leave anv
items on the codktop. The hot air from the vent
may ignite flammable items and will increase
pressure in closed containers, which may cause
them to burst.
Q 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.
●
When flaming foods are under the hood, turn
the fan off. The fan, if operating, may spread
the flames.
●
●
●
●
c Keep oven free from grease buildup.
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
Place oven shelves in desired position while
oven is cool.
Pulling out shelf to the shelf-stop is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also
a precaution against burns from touching hot
surfaces of the door or oven walls. The lowest
position “R” is not designed to slide.
Don’t heat unopened food containers in the
oven. Pressure could build up and the
container could burst, causing an injury.
Don’t use aluminum foil anywhere in the oven
except as described in this book, Misuse could
result in a fire hazard or damage to the range.
When using cooking or roasting bags in oven,
follow the manufacturer’s directions,
●
●
Clean only pa~ fisted in this Use
and Care Guide.
Keep range clean and free of
accumulations of grease or
spillovers, which may ignite.
Self-Cleaning Oven
Do not use oven for a storage area. Items
stored in the oven can ignite.
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.
If you should have a grease fire in the broiler
pan, turn off oven, and keep oven door closed to
contain fire until it burns out.
&
●
●
Make sure broiler pan is in place correctly to
reduce the possibility of grease fires.
..:s . .. . ... .. . .. -
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.
Baking, Broiling and Roasting
When broiling, if meat is too close to the flame,
the fat may ignite. Trim excess fat to prevent
excessive flare-ups.
Cleaning Your Range
c If range is located near a window, do not hang
long curtains that could blow over the top burners
and create a fire hazard.
●
Always remove broiler pan from oven 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.
Do not clean door gasket. The door gasket is
essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not
to rub, damage or move the gasket.
Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial oven
cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any part of the oven.
Before self-cleaning the oven, remove broiler
pan and other cookware.
If You Need Service
●
●
Read “The Problem Solver” in the back of
this guide.
Don’t attempt to repair or replace any part of
your range unless it is specifica~y recommended
in this guide. All other servicing should be

SUWACE COOmG
Electric Ignition
Your surface burners are lighted by electric ignition,
eliminating the need for standing pilot lights with
constantly burning flames.
The electrode of the spark igniter is exposed.
When one burner is turned to LITE, all the burners
spark. Do not attempt to disassemble or clean
around any burner while another burner is on.
An electric shock may result, which could cause
you to knock over hot cookware.
In case of a power failure, you can light the surface
burners on your range with a match. Hold a lighted
match to the burner, then turn the knob to the LITE
position, Use extreme caution when lighting burners
this way.
Surface burners in use when an electrical power
failure occurs will continue to operate normally.
Before Lighting a Burner
Surface Burner Controls
Knobs that turn the surface burners on and off are
marked as to which burners they control. The two
knobs on the left control the left front and left rear
burners. The two knobs on the right control the right
front and right rear burners.
If drip pans are supplied with your range, they
should be used at all times.
● Make sure the grates on the range are in place
before using either burner.
●
On ranges with sealed burners:
● The smaller burner (right rear position) will give the
best simmer results.
● The right front burner is higher powered than the
others and will bring liquids to a boil quicker
(natural gas installations only).
After Lighting a Burner
To Light a Surface Burner
Push the control knob in and
turn it to LITE. You will hear
a little “clicking” noise—the
sound of the electric spark
igniting the burner.
After the burner ignites, turn the
knob to adjust the flame size.
8
+1!11
E
Check to be sure the burner you turned on is the one
you want to use.
● 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.
● Be sure the burners and grates are cool before you
place your hand, a pot holder, cleaning cloths or
other materials on them.
●
How to Select Flame Size
Watch the flame, not the knob, as you reduce heat.
The flame size on a gas burner should match the
cookware you are using.
FOR SAFE HANDLING OF
COOKWARE NEVER LET
THE FLAME EXTEND
UP THE SIDES OF THE
COOKWARE. Any flame larger than the bottom
of the cookware is wasted and only serves to heat
the handle.
When using aluminum or aluminum-clad stainless
steel pots and pans, adjust the flame so the circle it
makes is about 1/2 inch smaller than the bottom of
the cookware.
When boiling, use this same flame size—1/2 inch
smaller than the bottom of the cookware-no matter
what the cookware is made of. Foods cook just as
quickly at a gentle boil as they do at a furious, rolling
boil. A high boil creates steam and cooks away
moisture, flavor and nutrition. Avoid it except for
the few cooking processes that need a vigorous boil.
When frying or warming foods in stainless steel,
cast iron or enamelware, keep the flame down
lower—to about 1/2 the diameter of the pan.
When frying in glass or ceramic cookware, lower
the flame even more.
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 tight-fitting lids when cooking with
minimum amounts of water.
Cast-Iron: If heated slowly, most skillets will give
satisfactory results.
Enamelware: Under some conditions, the enamel of
some cookware mav melt. Follow cookware
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
manufacturer’s recommendations for cooking methods.
Glass: There are two types of glass cookware-those
for oven use only and those fo; top-of-range cooking
(saucepans, coffee and teapots). Glass conducts heat
very slowly.
satisfactorily if they are used with medium heat as the
manufacturer recommends.
Wok Cooking
Use of Stove ToP Grills
(on models with seal;d burners)
(on models with sealed burners)
\
We recommend that you
use only a flat-bottomed
wok. They are available at
your local retail store.
!~~& ,:i:/;:
● Do not use woks that have
support rings. Use of these
*
types of woks, with or
without the ring in place,
can be dangerous. Placing the ~~!”;’:”
ring over the burner grate may
cause the burner to work improperly resulting in
carbon monoxide levels above allowable current
standards. This could be dangerous to your health.
Do not try to use such woks without the ring. You
could be seriously burned if the wok tipped over.
●
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.

The shelves are designed
with stop-locks so when
placed correctly on the
shelf supports, they will
stop before coming
completely out of the
oven and will not tilt
when you are removing
food from them or
placing food on them.
When placing cookware on a shelf, pull the shelf out
to the “stop” position. Place the cookware on the
shelf, then slide the shelf back into the oven. This will
eliminate reaching into the hot oven.
To remove a shelf from
the oven, pull it toward

of oven until it goes past “stop” on oven wall. Then
lower front of shelf and push it all the way back.
The oven has five shelf
supports for normal
baking and roasting
identified in this
illustration as A
(bottom), B, C, D and
E (top). It also has a
)
special low shelf
position (R) for roasting extra large items, such
as a large turkey—the
shelf is not designed to
slide out at this position.
Shelf positions for cooking
are suggested on Baking
and Roasting pages.

Oven Moisture
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.
Oven Ven@
The oven is vented through duct openings at the rear
of the cooktop. See Features section. Do not block
these openings when cooking in the oven—it is
important that the flow of hot air from the oven and
fresh air to the oven burners be uninterrupted.
● The

●
Adjusting Oven Themostat
When cooking a food for the first time in your new
oven, use time given on recipes as a guide. Oven
thermostats, over a period of years, may “drift” from
the factory setting, and differences in timing between
an old and a new oven of 5 to 10 minutes are not
unusual. You may be inclined to think that the new
oven is not performing correctly; however, your new
oven has been set correctly at the factory and is more
likely to be accurate than the oven it replaced.
If you think the oven should be hotter or cooler, you
can adjust it yourself. To decide how much to change
the thermostat, set the oven temperature 25°F. higher
or lower than the temperature in your recipe, then
bake. The results of this “test” should give you an
idea of how much the thermostat should be changed.
To adjust thermostat:
1. Press the BAKE pad.
2. Select an oven temperature between 500°F. and 550°F.
3. Immediately, before BAKE indicator stops
flashing, press and hold the BAKE pad for about
4 seconds. The red display will change to the oven
adjustment display.
4. The oven thermostat can be adjusted up to
(+) 35°F. hotter or (-) 35°F. cooler. Use the
INCREASE or DECREASE pads to select the
desired change in the red display.
5. When you have made the adjustment, press the
CLEAWOFF pad to go back to the time of day
display. Use your oven as you would normally.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect Broil or
Clean temperatures. It will be remembered when
power is removed.

BA~G
Your oven temperature is controlled very accurately using an oven
control system. We recommend that you operate the range for a number
of weeks to become familiar with your new oven’s performance. If you
think an adjustment is necessary, see the Using Your Oven or Minor
Adjustments section.
How to Set Your Range for Baking
Do not lock the oven door with the door latch
during baking. This is used for self-cleaning only.

Preheating
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it. Preheat
means bringing the oven up to the specified
temperature before putting in the food. To preheat, set
the oven at the correct temperature—selecting a
higher temperature does not shorten preheat time.
Preheating is necess~ for good results when baking
cakes, cookies, pastry and breads. For most casseroles
and roasts, preheating is not necessary. For ovens
without a preheat indicator light or tone, preheat 10
minutes. After the oven is preheated place the food
in the oven as quickly as possible to prevent heat
from escaping.
Baking Pans
Pan Placement
Use the proper baking pan. The type of finish on the
pan determines the amount of browning that will occur.
● Dark, rough or dull pans absorb heat resulting in a
browner, crisper crust. Use this type for pies.
● Shiny, bright and smooth pans reflect heat, resulting
in a lighter, more delicate browning. Cakes and
cookies require this type of pan.
● Glass baking dishes also absorb heat. When baking
in glass baking dishes, lower the temperature by
25°F. and use the recommended cooking time in
the recipe. This is not necessary when baking pies
or casseroles.
For even cooking and proper browning, there must be
enough room for air circulation in the oven. Baking
results will be better if baking pans are centered as
much as possible rather than being placed to the front
or to the back of the oven.
Pans should not touch each other or the walls of the
oven. Allow 1 to 1 k inch space between pans as well
as from the back of the oven, the door and the sides. If
you use two shelves, stagger the pans so one is not
directly above the other.
16
I
I
Baking Guides
When using prepared baking mixes, follow package recipe or instructions
for best baking results.
Cookies
When baking cookies, flat cookie sheets (without
sides) produce better-looking cookies. Cookies baked
in a jelly roll pan (short sides all around) may have
darker edges and pale or light browning may occur.
Do not use a cookie sheet so large that it touches the
walls or the door of the oven.
For best results, use only one cookie sheet in the oven
at a time.
9
0
Pies
Cakes
For best results, bake pies in dark, rough or dull pans
to produce a browner, crisper crust. Frozen pies in foil
pans should be placed on an aluminum cookie sheet
for baking since the shiny foil pan reflects heat away
from the pie crust; the cookie sheet helps retain it.
When baking cakes, warped or bent pans will cause
uneven baking results and poorly shaped products.
A cake baked in a pan larger than the recipe
recommends will usually be crisper, thinner and drier
than it should be. If baked in a pan smaller than
recommended, it may be undercooked and batter may
overflow. Check the recipe to make sure the pan size
used is the one recommended,
Aluminum Foil
Never cover a shelf entirely with a large cookie sheet
or aluminum foil. This will disturb the heat
circulation and results in poor baking. A smaller sheet
of foil may be used to catch a spillover by placing it
on a lower shelf several inches below the food.
Don’t Peek
Set the timer for the estimated cooking time and do
not open the door to look at your food. Most recipes
provide minimum and maximum baking times such
as “bake 30-40 minutes.”
DO NOT open the door to check until the minimum
time. Opening the oven door frequently during
cooking allows heat to escape and makes baking
times longer. Your baking results may also
be affected.
17
ROAST~G
Step 3: Press the BAKE pad.
Do not lock the oven door with the door latch
during roasting. This is used for self-cleaning only.
Roasting is cooking by dry heat. Tender meat or
poultry can be roasted uncovered in your oven.
Roasting temperatures, which should be low and
steady, keep spattering to a minimum.
The oven has a special
low shelf (R) position
just above the oven
bottom. Use it when
extra cooking space is
needed, for example,
when roasting a large
turkey. The shelf is not
designed to slide out at
this position.
Roasting is really a baking procedure used for meats.
Therefore, oven controls are set for BA~ or TIME
BAKE. (You may hear a slight clicking sound,
indicating the oven is working properly.) Roasting
is easy; just follow these steps:
Step 1: Place the shelf
in A or B position for
small size roasts (3 to
5 lbs.) and R position
for larger roasts. No
preheating is necessary.
Step 2: Check the
weight of the meat.
Place the meat fatside-up,or poultry breast-side-up, on roasting rack in a
shallow pan. The melting fat will baste the meat.
Select a pan as close to the size of the meat as
possible. (Broiler pan with rack is a good pan for
this.) Line broiler pan with aluminum foil-when using
pan for marinating, cooking with fruits, cooking
heavily cured meats, or basting food during cooking.
Avoid spilling these materials inside the oven or
inside the oven door.

CLEAR
OFF
Step 5: Press the CLEAWOFF pad
when roasting is finished and then
remove food from oven.
Step 6: N40st meats continue to cook slightly while
standing, after being removed from the overi.
Standing time recommended for roasts is 10 to 20
minutes. This allows roasts to firm up and makes
them easier to carve. Internal temperature will rise
about 5° to 10°F.; to compensate for temperature
increase, if desired, remove the roast from oven
sooner (at 5° to 10°F. less than temperature in the
Roasting Guide).
NOTE: You may wish to TIME BAKE, as described
in the Baking section of this book, to turn oven on and
off automatically.
Remember that food will continue to cook in the hot
oven and therefore should be removed when the
desired internal temperature has been reached.
For Frozen Roasti
Dual Shelf Cooking
Frozen roasts of beef, pork, lamb, etc., can be started
without thawing, but allow 10 to 25 minutes per
pound additional time (10 minutes per pound for
roasts under 5 pounds, more time for larger roasts).
● Thaw most frozen poultry before roasting to ensure
even doneness. Some commercial frozen poultry can
be cooked successfully without thawing. Follow
directions given on package label.
This allows more than one food to be cooked at the
same time. For example: While roasting a 20 lb.
turkey on shelf (R) a second shelf maybe added on
position D so that scalloped potatoes can be cooked
at the same time. Calculate the total cooking time to
enable both dishes to complete cooking at the same
time. Allow 15-20 minutes of additional cooking time
for the potatoes.
●

Questions and Answers
Q. Is it necessary to check for doneness with a
meat thermometer?
A. Checking the finished internal temperature at the
completion of cooking time is recommended.
Temperatures are shown in Roasting Guide. For
roasts over 8 lbs., check with thermometer at halfhour intervals after half the time has passed.
Q. Why is my roast crumbling when I try to
carve it?
A. Roasts are easier to slice if allowed to cool 10 to
20 minutes after removing from oven. Be sure to
cut across the grain of the meat.
Q. Do I need to preheat my oven each time I cook a
roast or poultry?
A. It is unnecessary to preheat your oven.
Q. When buying a roast, are there any special tips
that would help me cook it more evenly?
A. Yes. Buy a roast as even in thickness as possible,
or buy rolled roasts.
Q. Can I seal the sides of my foil “tent” when
roasting a turkey?
A. Sealing the foil will steam the meat. Leaving it
unsealed allows the air to circulate and brown
the meat.

Broiling is cooking food by intense radiant heat from
the upper unit in the oven. Most fish and tender cuts
of meat can be broiled. Follow these steps to keep
spattering and smoking to a minimum.
The oven door should be closed during broiling.
Do not lock the oven door with the door latch
during broiling. This is used for self-cleaning only.
Step 1: If meat has fat or gristle near edge, cut
vertical slashes through both about 2“ apart.
If desired, fat maybe trimmed, leaving layer about
1/8” thick.
Step 2: Place meat on broiler rack in broiler pan.
Always use rack so fat drips into broiler pan;
otherwise juices may become hot enough to catch fire.
Step 3: Position shelf on recommended shelf position
as suggested in Broiling Guide.
Step 4: Close the oven door.
Step 5: Press BROIL pad.
Step 6: Select LO Broil (450°F.) by tapping
INCREASE pad once. Select HI Broil (550°F.) by
tapping INCREASE pad twice.
To change from HI Broil to LO Broil, press the
BROIL pad then tap DECREASE pad once.
Step 7: Turn food only
once during cooking.
Time foods for first side
per Broiling Guide.
Turn food, then use
times given for second
side as a guide to
preferred doneness.
(Where two thicknesses
and times are given together,
use first times given for thinnest food.)
Step 8: When broiling is completed press the
CLEAWOFF pad. Serve food immediately, and
leave pan outside oven to cool during meal for
easiest cleaning.
Use of Aluminum Foil
/1
You can use aluminum foil to line your broiler pan and broiler rack. However,
you must mold the foil tightly to the rack and cut slits in it just like the rack.
Without the slits, the foil will prevent fat and meat juices from draining to the
broiler pan. The juices could become hot enough to catch on fire. If you do
not cut the slits, you are frying, not broiling.
Questions & Answers
Q. When broiling, is it necessag to always use a rack
in the pan?
A. Yes. Using the rack suspends the meat over the
pan. As the meat cooks, the juices fall into the pan,
thus keeping meat drier. Juices are protected by the
rack and stay cooler, thus preventing excessive
spatter and smoking.
Q. Should I salt the meat
before broiling?
A. No. Salt draws out the juices and allows them to
evaporate. Always salt after cooking. Turn meat
with tongs; piercing meat with a fork also allows
juices to escape. When broiling poultry or fish,
brush each side often with butter.
20
Q. Do I need to grease my
broiler rack to prevent meat from sticking?
A. No. The broiler rack is designed to reflect broiler
heat, thus keeping the surface cool enough to
prevent meat from sticking to the surface.
However, spraying the broiler rack lightly with a
vegetable cooking spray before cooking will make
clean up easier.
Q. Why are my meats not turning out as brown as
they should?
A. Check to see if you are using the recommended
shelf position. Broil for longest period of time
indicated in the broiling Guide. Turn food only
once during broiling.
1. Always use broiler pan and rack that comes with
your oven. It is designed to minimize smoking and
spattering by trapping juices in the shielded lower
part of the pan.
2. Broiling should always be done with the oven
door closed.
3. For steaks and chops, slash fat evenly around
outside edges of meat. To slash, cut crosswise
through outer fat surface just to the edge of the
meat. Use tongs to turn meat over to prevent
piercing meat and losing juices.
4. If desired, marinate meats or chicken before
broiling or brush with barbecue sauce last 5 to 10
minutes only.

OPEMT~G THE SELF-CLEANING OWN
Normal Cleaning Time: 4 hours
Before a Clean Cycle
Clean top, sides and outside front of oven door with
soap and water. Do not use abrasives or oven cleaners.
● Do not rub or clean the door gasket (B)—the
fiberglass material of the gasket has an extremely
low resistance to abrasion. An intact and well-fitting
oven door gasket is essential for energy-efficient
oven operation and good baking results. If you
notice the gasket becoming worn, frayed or damaged
in any way or if it has become displaced on the door,
you should have it replaced.
Step 4: Close and latch the door. Make sure the oven
light (C) is off.
Oven shelves may be cleaned in the self-cleaning
oven. However, they will darken, lose their luster and
become hard to slide. Wipe the shelf supports with
cooking oil after self-cleaning to make shelves slide
more easily.
Caution: Drip pans should never be cleaned in the
self-cleaning oven.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners or oven
protectors in or near the self-cleaning oven. A
combination of any of these products plus the high

After a Clean Cycle
When the clean cycle is finished, the word “CLEAN”
will go out in the display and the oven will begin to
cool. When the oven temperature has fallen below the
locking temperature the word “LOCK” goes out and
the door can be opened.
After a clean cycle, you may notice some white ash in
the oven. Just wipe it up with a damp cloth. If white
spots remain, remove them with a soap-filled steel wool
pad. Be sure to rinse thoroughly with a vinegar and
water mixture. These deposits are usually a sdt residue
that cannot be removed by the clean cycle.
If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle, the cycle
may be repeated.
How to Delay Start of Cleaning
Delay Start is setting the oven timer to start the clean
cycle automatically at a later time than the present

Questions and Answers
Q. If my oven clock is not working, can I still selfclean my oven?
A. If the clock is not working then the entire control is
not working. If the clock is not set to the correct
time of day you will not be able to set a delay
clean to end at a specific time.
Q. Can I use commercial oven cleaners on any part
of my self-cleaning oven?
A. No cleaners or coatings should be used around any
part of this oven. If you do use them and do not
thoroughly rinse the oven with water, wiping it
absolutely clean afterwards, the residue can scar
the oven surface and damage metal parts the next
time the oven is automatically cleaned.
Q. What should I do if excessive smoking occurs
during cleaning?
A. This is caused by excessive soil. Press the
CLEAWOFF pad. Open windows to rid room
of smoke. Wait until the oven has cooled (about
20-30 minutes) and the word “LOCK” is off in
the display. Wipe up the excess soil and reset the
clean cycle.
Q. Is the “crackling” sound I hear during
cleaning normal?
A. Yes. This is the sound of the metal heating
and cooling during both the cooking and
cleaning functions.
24
Q. Should there be any odor during the cleaning?
A. Yes, there maybe a slight odor during the first few
cleanings. Failure to wipe out excessive soil might
also cause a strong odor when cleaning.
Q. What causes the hair-like lines on the enameled
surface of my oven?
A. This is a normal condition, resulting from heating
and cooling during cleaning. These lines do not
affect how your oven performs.
Q. Why do I have ash left in my oven after cleaning?
A. Some types of soil will leave a deposit which is
ash. It can be removed with a damp sponge or cloth.
Q. My oven shelves do not slide easily. What is
the matter?
A. After many cleanings, oven shelves may become
so clean they do not slide easily. To make shelves
slide more easily, after each self-cleaning function
dampen fingers with a small amount of cooking oil
and rub lightly over sides of shelf where they
contact shelf supports.
Q. My oven shelves have become gray after the
self-clean cycle. Is this normal?
A. Yes. After the self-clean cycle, the shelves may
lose some luster and change to a deep gray color.
Q. The word “door” appeared on the display when
I selected the Clean Cycle. What is wrong?
A. The door latch handle must be moved all the way
to the right. Move the latch handle and cleaning
will stti.
Proper care and cleaning are important so your range will give you efficient
and satisfactory service. Follow these directions carefully in caring for it to

spark. Do not attempt to
disassemble or clean around any burner while
another burner is on. An electric shock may result,
which could cause you to knock over hot cookware.
On models with dual burners, the cooktop lifts up for
easy access.
The holes in the surface burners of your range must
be kept clean at all times for proper ignition and an
even, unhampered flame.
You should clean the surface burners routinely,
especially after bad spillovers, which could clog these
holes. Wipe off surface burners. If heavy spillover
occurs, remove the surface burners from range.
Burners lift out for cleaning. Lift up the cooktop and
then lift out the surface burners.
To remove burned-on food, soak the surface burner in
a solution of mild liquid detergent and hot water. Soak
the surface burner for 20 to 30 minutes. For more
stubborn stains, use a cleanser like Soft Scrub” brand
or Bon Ami@ brand. Rinse well to remove any traces
of the cleanser that might clog the surface burner
openings. Do not use steel wool because it will clog
the surface burner openings and scratch the surface
burners. If the holes become clogged, clean them with
a toothpick.
Before putting the surface burner back, shake out
excess water and then dry it thoroughly by setting it in
a warm oven for 30 minutes. Then place it back in the
range, making sure it is properly seated and level.

Burner Caps (on sealed burners only)
Lift off when cool. Wash burner caps in hot, soapy
water and rinse with clean water. If desired, so& up
to 30 minutes and scour with a plastic scouring pad to
remove burned-on food particles. Dry them in a warm
oven or with a cloth—don’t reassemble them wet.
Range Burner Heads
(on sealed burners only)
The holes in the burners of your range, and the spark
electrodes, must be kept clean at all times for proper
ignition and an even, unhampered flame.
You should clean the burner heads routinely, especially
after bad spillovers, which could clog these holes.
Wipe off burner heads. If heavy spillover occurs,
remove burner heads from range.
Remove the burner grate and burner cap. Then lift the
burner head straight up.
To remove burned-on food, soak the burner head
upside-down in a solution of mild liquid detergent and
hot water. Soak the burner head for 20 to 30 minutes.
If the food doesn’t rinse off completely, scrub it with
soap and water and a brush or plastic scouring pad.
For more stubborn stains, use a cleanser like Soft
Scrub@ brand or Bon Ami@ brand. Rinse well to
remove any traces of the cleanser that might clog the
burner openings. Do not use steel wool because it will
clog the burner openings and scratch the burners. If
the holes become clogged, clean them with a toothpick.
Do not clean the burner head in the self-cleaning oven.
Before putting the burner head back, shake out excess
water and dry it thoroughly by setting it in a warm
oven for 30 minutes. Then place it back in the range,
making sure the pin in the burner base goes in the
hole in the burner head, and that the burner heads are
properly seated and level.
Range Burner Base
(on sealed burners only)
The burner base (the part of the burner fastened to the
cooktop) may be cleaned with a soft brush and a mild
cleanser. Clean all food residues from around spark
electrode. Do not use steel wool; small bits of steel
wool will short out the electrode. Rinse well.
26
Burner Grates
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.
After cleaning, dry them thoroughly by putting them
in a warm oven for a few minutes. Don’t put the
grates back on the range while they are wet. When
replacing the grates, be sure they’re positioned
securely over the burners.
To get rid of burned-on food, place the grates in
a covered container (or plastic bag) with 1/4 cup
ammonia to loosen the soil. Then scrub with a
soap-filled scouring pad if necessary.
Although they’re 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.
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.
Drip Pans (on some models)
~~[
Remove the grates and lift out the drip pans. Drip
pans can be cleaned in dishwasher or by hand. Place
them in a covered container (or plastic bag) with
1/4 cup ammonia to loosen the soil. Then scrub with
a soap-filled scouring pad if necessary.
Caution: Drip pans CANNOT be self-cleaned.
Cooktop Sutiace
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.
When the surface has cooled, wash and rinse. For
other spills such as fat smatterings, etc., wash with
soap and water once the surface has cooled. Then
rinse and polish with a dry cloth.
Do not store flammable materials in an oven 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.

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.
NOTE: Be careful not to place hands between the
spring hinge and the oven frame as the spring hinge
could snap back and pinch your fingers.
To replace the door, make sure the hinges are in the
“out” position. Position the slots in the bottom of the
door squarely over the hinges. Then lower the door
slowly and evenly over both hinges at the same time.
TO CLEAN THE DOOR:
(Do not immerse door in water.)
Inside of door:
● Because the area inside the gasket is cleaned during
the self clean cycle, you do not need to clean this by
hand. Any soap left on the liner causes additional
stains when the oven is heated.
● The area outside the gasket can be cleaned with a
scouring pad.
● Do not rub or clean the door gasket—the fiberglass
material of the gasket has an extremely low
resistance to abrasion. An intact and well-fitting
oven door gasket is essential for energy-efficient
oven operation and good baking results. If you
notice the gasket becoming worn, frayed or damaged
in any way or if it has become displaced on the door,
you should have it replaced.

Oven Shelves
Shelves can be cleaned by hand using soap and water or
witi an abrasive cleanser. After cleaning, rinse the
shelves with clean water and dry. To remove heavy,
burned-on soil, you may use scouring pads. After
scrubbing, wash with soapy water, rinse and dry.
Shelves may also be cleaned in self-cleaning oven,
but will discolor and lose some luster. See the SelfCleaning section.
Oven Bottom
,,/.
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. You can
use aluminum foil if you do not cover the whole shelf.
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 hi~hlv acidic (such as
milk,-tomatoes or sauerkraut, an~ s~uces with vinegar
or lemon juice) may cause pitting and damage to the
porcelain enamel surface and should be wiped up
immediately. Take care not to touch hot portion of oven.
If a spillover does occur on the oven bottom, allow
the oven to cool first. You can then clean the oven
bottom with soap and water, an abrasive cleanser or
scouring pads.
● Rinse well to remove any soap before self-cleaning,
Broiler Pan and Rack
After broiling, remove the broiler pan and rack
from the oven. Remove the rack from the pan.
Carefully pour out the grease in the pan into a
proper container.
If food has burned on, sprinkle the rack with detergent
while hot and cover with wet paper towels or a
dishcloth. That way, burned-on foods will soak loose
while the meal is being served.
Wash; scour if necessary. Rinse and dry. The broiler
pan and rack may also be cleaned in a dishwasher.
Do not store a soiled broiler pan and rack anywhere
in the range.

Broil and Bottom Burner Air Ad.iustment Shutters
The combustion quality of burner flames needs to be
determined visually. See the Installation Instructions
and the Problem Solver sections in this book. Air
adjustment shutters for the top (broil) and bottom
burners regulate the flow of air to the flames.
The flames for the top (broil) burner should burn
steady with approximately 1“ blue cones and should
not extend out over the edges of the burner baffle.
To determine if the bottom burner flames are
proper, remove the oven bottom and the burner
baffle.
The air adjustment shutter for the top (broil) burner
is in the center of the rear wall of the oven.
(See Installation Instructions in this book.)
To remove the oven bottom:
1. Remove the knurled screws holding down rear of
oven bottom.
2. Grasp the oven bottom at finger slots on each side.
3. Lift the rear of the oven bottom enough to clear the
lip of the range frame, then pull out.
Burner Baffle
The shutter for the bottom (oven) burner is near the
back wdl behind the storage drawer, or kick panel.
To adjust the flow of air to either burner, loosen the
Phillips head screw and rotate the shutter to allow
more or less air into the burner tube as needed.
Remove Screw
To remove the burner ba~e, use a nut driver
to remove the 1/4” hex head screw shown in the
illustration above. Do not remove any other screws.
Pull baffle straight out until it is free from the slot

WARNING
Al ranges can tip and injury
could result. To prevent
accidental tipping of the
range, attach an approved
Anti-Tip
device to the wall.
d (See Installing
the Anti-Tip
Device in this section.) To
check if the device is
;C4
installed and engaged
properly, carefully tip the
range forward. The Anti-Tip
device should engage and
A prevent the range from
tipping over.
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
range top 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.

LO~TION
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.
PROTECT YOUR FLOOR
Your range, like many other household items,
is heavy and ~an 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). men thefloor
covering etih 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. This will allow the range to be
moved for cleaning or servicing.
MODEL AND SERIAL NUMBER LO~TION
Depending on your range, you’ll find the model
and serial numbers on a label on the front frame
of the range, behind the storage drawer, kick
panel or broiler drawer.

PREMRATION
● Remove all tape and packaging. Lift up the
cooktop (on models with dual burners) and remove
any packing material under it. Make sure the
dual burners are properly seated and level.
● Remove plastic film that covers some chrome
parts (around oven door, side trim).
● Take the accessory pack out of the oven.
● Check to be sure that no range parts have
come loose during shipping.
❑
pROVIDE ADEQuATE GAS SUPPLY
Your range is designed to operate at a pressure
of 4“ of water column on natural gas or, if designed
for LP gas @ropane or butane), 10” of water
column. 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 a different
type of gas, conversion adjustments must be
made by a service technician or other qualtiled
person before attempting to operate the range on
that gas.
For proper operation, the pressure of natural gas
supplied to the regulator must be between 4“ and
13” of water column. For LP gas, the pressure
supplied must be between 10” and 13” of water
column. men checking for proper operation of
the regulator, the inlet pressure must beat 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. 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 (shorter and longer lengths are
acceptable) for ease of instillation. In Canada,
flexible connectors must be single wall metal
connectors no longer than 6 feet in length.

❑ CONNECT THE RANGE TO GAS
Shut off the main gas supply valve before
disconnecting the old range and leave it off until
new hook-up has been completed. Don’t forget
to relight the pilot on other gas appliances when
you turn the gas back on.
Because hard piping restricts movement of the
range, the use of an A. G.A.-certified flexible
metil appliance connector is recommended
unless local codes require a hard-piped connection.
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.
To prevent gas leaks, put pipe joint compound
on, or wrap pipe thread tape with Teflon*
around, all male (external) pipe threads.
