IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Read all instructions before using this appliance.
Using Your Cooktop
• Do not leave children alone—children should
not be left alone or unattended in an area where an
appliance is in use. They should never be allowed
to sit or stand on any part of the appliance.
• Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on
the cooktop.
• CAUTION: ITEMS OF INTEREST TO
CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE STORED
IN CABINETS ABOVE A COOKTOP—
CHILDREN CLIMBING ON THE
COOKTOP TO REACH ITEMS COULD BE
SERIOUSLY INJURED.
• 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 hot surface units and
may cause severe burns.
• Always keep dish towels, dish cloths, pot
holders and other linens a safe distance from
your cooktop.
• Always keep wooden and plastic utensils
and canned food a safe distance away from
your cooktop.
• Teach children not to play with the controls or
any other part of the cooktop.
• Always keep combustible wall coverings,
curtains or drapes a safe distance from
your cooktop.
• Use only dry pot holders—moist or
damp pot holders on hot surfaces may
result in burns from steam. Do not let
pot holders touch hot surface units. Do not use a
towel or other bulky cloth in place of a pot holder.
Such cloths can catch fire on a hot surface unit.
• For your safety, never use your appliance for
warming or heating the room.
• Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan. Turn
off the surface unit then smother
flaming pan by covering pan completely with
well-fitting lid, cookie sheet or flat tray or, if
available, a multi-purpose dry chemical or
foam-type extinguisher.
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.
Flaming grease inside 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 near the
cooktop.
• Keep hood and grease filters clean to maintain
good venting and to avoid grease fires.
• When flaming foods are under the hood,
turn the fan off. The fan, if operating, may spread
the flame.
• Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate on the cooktop.

Important Safety Instructions
When using electrical appliances, basic safety
precautions should be followed, including the
following:
• Use this appliance only for its intended use as
described in this guide.
• Do not attempt to repair or replace any
part of your cooktop unless it is specifically
recommended in this guide. All other servicing
should be referred to a qualified technician.
• Be sure your appliance is properly installed
and grounded by a qualified technician in
accordance with the provided Installation
Instructions.
• Before performing any service, DISCONNECT
THE COOKTOP POWER SUPPLY AT THE
HOUSEHOLD DISTRIBUTION PANEL
BY REMOVING THE FUSE OR SWITCHING
OFF THE CIRCUIT BREAKER.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
(continued)
• Do not touch surface units. These surfaces may
be hot enough to burn even though they are dark
in color. During and after use, do not touch, or let
clothing or other flammable materials contact
surface units or areas nearby surface units; allow
sufficient time for cooling first.
Potentially hot surfaces include the cooktop and
areas facing the cooktop.
• To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition of
flammable materials, and spillage, the handle of a
container should be turned toward the center of
the cooktop without extending over any nearby
surface units.
• Always turn the surface units to OFF before
removing cookware.
• To avoid the possibility of a burn or electric
shock, always be certain that the controls for all
surface units are at the OFF position and all
surface units are cool before attempting to lift or
remove the unit.
• Do not immerse or soak the removable surface
units. Do not put them in a dishwasher.
• Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet sponge
or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot surface, be
careful to avoid steam burns.
• 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.
• Use proper pan size—This appliance is equipped
with different size surface units. Select cookware
having flat bottoms large enough to cover the
surface unit heating element. The use of undersized
cookware will expose a portion of the surface unit
to direct contact and may result in ignition of
clothing. Proper relationship of the cookware to the
surface unit will also improve efficiency.
• Never leave the surface units unattended at
high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking and
greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
• Be sure the drip pans and the duct are not
covered and are in place. Their absence during
cooking could damage cooktop parts and wiring.
4
• Do not use aluminum foil to line the drip pans.
Misuse could result in a shock, fire hazard or
damage to the cooktop.
• Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed containers are
suitable for cooktop service; others may break
because of the sudden change in temperature.
• Keep an eye on foods being fried at HI or
Medium High heat settings.
• Foods for frying should be as dry as possible.
Frost on frozen foods or moisture on fresh foods
can cause hot fat to bubble up and over the sides
of the pan.
• Use little fat for effective shallow or deep-fat
frying. Filling the pan too full of fat can cause
spillovers when food is added.
• If a combination of oils or fats will be used in
frying, stir together before heating, or as fats
melt slowly.
• Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
• Use a deep fat thermometer whenever
possible to prevent overheating fat beyond the
smoking point.
• Never try to move a pan of hot fat, especially
a deep fat fryer. Wait until the fat is cool.

CONTROLS
Your surface units and controls are designed to give
you an infinite choice of heat settings for surface
unit cooking.
At both OFF and HI the control “clicks” into position.
When cooking in a quiet kitchen, you may hear slight
“clicking” sounds—an indication that the heat settings
you selected are being maintained.
Switching heats to higher settings always results in
a quicker change than switching to lower settings.
How to Set the Controls
1. Grasp the control knob
and push down.
2. Turn the knob to the
desired heat setting.
The control must be pushed in to set only from
the OFF position. When the control is in any
position other than OFF, it may be rotated
without pushing in.
Be sure you turn the control knob to OFF when you
finish cooking.
An indicator light will glow when a surface unit is on.

MED—Sauté and brown; keeps food at medium boil
or simmer.
Medium Low—(Setting halfway between MED and
LO) Cook after starting at HI; cooks with little water in a
covered pan.
LO—Steam rice, cereal; maintains serving temperature
of foods. Slow cooking and simmering. At LO settings,
melt chocolate and butter on a small surface unit.
NOTE: At HI or Medium High never leave food
unattended. Boilovers cause smoking; greasy
spillovers may catch fire.
COOKWARE TIPS
Cookware
Use medium- or heavy-weight cookware. Aluminum
cookware conducts heat faster than other metals.
Cast-iron and coated cast-iron cookware are slow to
absorb heat, but generally cook evenly at low to
medium heat settings. Steel pans may cook unevenly
if not combined with other metals.
For best cooking results pans should be flat on the
bottom. Match the size of the saucepan to the size of
the surface unit. The pan should not extend over the
edge of the trim ring more than 1 inch.

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
surface unit will cause a build-up of heat that will
damage the porcelain cooktop. Do not try to use such
woks without the ring. You could be seriously burned
if the wok tipped over.
We recommend that
you use only a flatbottomed wok. They
are available at your
local retail store.
Canning should be done on cooktop only.
Pots that extend beyond 1 inch of surface unit’s edge
are not recommended for most surface cooking.
However, when canning with water-bath or pressure
canner, large-diameter pots may be used. This is
because boiling water temperatures (even under
pressure) are not harmful to cooktop surfaces
surrounding surface unit.
HOWEVER, DO NOT USE LARGE DIAMETER
CANNERS OR OTHER LARGE DIAMETER
COOKWARE FOR FRYING OR BOILING FOODS
OTHER THAN WATER. Most syrup or sauce
mixtures—and all types of frying—cook at
temperatures much higher than boiling water. Such
temperatures could eventually harm cooktop surfaces.
Cookware Tips
HOME CANNING TIPS
Observe Following Points in Canning
RIGHT
WRONG
Flat bottomed canners are recommended.
3. When canning, use recipes and procedures from
reputable sources. Reliable recipes and procedures
are available from the manufacturer of your canner;
manufacturers of glass jars for canning, such as
Ball and Kerr; and the United States Department
of Agriculture Extension Service.
4. Remember that canning is a process that generates
large amounts of steam. To avoid burns from steam
or heat, be careful when canning.
NOTE: If your house has low voltage, canning may
take longer than expected, even though directions
have been carefully followed. The process time will
be shortened by:
(1) using a pressure canner, and
(2) starting with HOT tap water for fastest heating
of large quantities of water.
7
Home Canning Tips
1. Be sure canner fits over center of surface unit.
If your cooktop or its location do not allow canner
to be centered on the surface unit, use smallerdiameter pots for good canning results.
2. Flat-bottomed canners must be used. Do not use
canners with flanged or rippled bottoms (often
found in enamelware) because they don’t make
enough contact with the surface unit and take too
long to boil water.
CARE AND CLEANING
Proper care and cleaning are important so your cooktop will give you efficient
and satisfactory service. Follow these directions carefully in caring for it to
help assure safe and proper maintenance.
BE SURE ELECTRIC POWER IS OFF BEFORE CLEANING ANY
PART OF THE COOKTOP.
Control Knobs
The control knobs may be removed for cleaning.
Before removing the knobs for cleaning, please note
that the knobs on the left side and the knobs on the
right side are in the proper OFF position. When
replacing the knobs, check the OFF position to
insure proper alignment.
To remove a knob, pull it straight off the stem.
Wash the knobs in soap and water but do not soak.
Avoid getting water down in to the knob stem holes.
To replace a knob, locate the groove in each side of
the knob stem. One of the grooves contains a spring
clip and the other groove is clear. Locate the molded
rib inside the knob. Fit the molded rib into the clear
groove on the knob stem.
Molded rib
Spring clip
Clear groove
Porcelain Enamel Cooktop (on some models)
Brushed Chrome Cooktop (on some models)
The porcelain enamel finish is sturdy but
breakable if misused. This finish is acid-resistant.
However, any acid foods spilled (such as fruit juices,
tomato or vinegar) should not be permitted to remain
on the finish.
If acids spill on the cooktop while it is hot, use a dry
paper towel or cloth to wipe it up right away. When
the surface has cooled, wash with soap and water.
Rinse well.
For other spills such as fat spatterings, wash with
soap and water or cleansing powders after the surface
has cooled. Rinse well. Polish with a dry cloth.
Clean the brushed chrome top with warm, soapy
water or Bon Ami® brand cleanser and immediately
dry it with a clean, soft cloth. Take care to dry the
surface following the “grain.” To help prevent finger
marks after cleaning, spread a thin film of baby oil on
the surface or a chrome protectant may be used to
help reduce spotting or fingerprinting. Wipe away
excess oil with a clean, soft cloth.
8
Surface Units and Drip Pans
To clean the surface units, turn the control to the
highest setting for a minute. The coils will burn off
any soil.
CAUTION
• Be sure all the controls are turned to OFF and
the surface units are cool before attempting to
remove them.
• Do not immerse the surface units in liquids
of any kind.
• Do not clean the surface units in a dishwasher.
• Do not bend the surface unit plug terminals.
• Do not attempt to clean, adjust or in any way repair
the plug-in receptacle.
To remove a surface unit:
To replace a surface unit:
• Replace the drip pan into the recess in the
cooktop. Make sure opening in the pan lines up
with the receptacle.
• Insert the terminals of the surface unit through
the opening in the drip pan and into the receptacle.
• Guide the surface unit into place so it rests evenly.
To remove the drip pans for cleaning, the surface units
must be removed first.
Lift the surface unit about 1 inch above the drip pan
and pull it out.
Do not lift the surface unit more than 1 inch.
If you do, it may not lie flat on the drip pan when
you plug it back in.
Repeated lifting of the surface unit more
than 1 inch above the drip pan can permanently
damage the receptacle.
9
Care and Cleaning
Drip Pans
Remove the surface units. Then lift out the drip pans.
For best results, clean the drip pans by hand. Place
them in a covered container (or a plastic bag) with 1/4
cup ammonia to loosen the soil. Then scrub with a
soap filled scouring pad if necessary. Rinse with clean
water and polish with a clean soft cloth.
The drip pans may also be cleaned in the dishwasher.
Clean the area under the drip pans often.
Built-up soil, especially grease, may catch on fire.
Do not cover drip pans with foil. Using foil so close
to the receptacle could cause shock, fire or damage to
the cooktop.
