INDUCTION COOKTOP ELEMENTS
Be sure you know which touch control operates each surface
heating unit. Place a pan of food on the unit before turning it on, and
turn the unit off before removing the pan.
Use proper pan sizes - This appliance is equipped with surface units of
different sizes. Select pots and pans that have flat bottoms large enough
to cover the surface area of the heating element. Using undersized
cookware will expose a portion of the heating element to direct contact
and may result in the ignition of clothing. Matching the size of the pot or
pan to the burner will also improve efficiency.
Cookware Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend Over
Adjacent Surface Elements - To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of
flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the
cookware, cookware handles should be positioned so that they are
turned inward, and do not extend over adjacent surface units.
Glazed Cookware - Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic,
earthenware, or other glazed cookware are suitable for range-top service
without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature.
Never Leave Surface Elements Unattended at High Heat Settings Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a pan
that has boiled dry may melt.
Metallic objects such as knives, forks, spoons and lids should not be
placed on the Induction Cooktop surface since they can get hot.
When preparing flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn the
fan on.
Use care when touching the cooktop. The glass surface of the
cooktop will retain heat after the controls have been turned off.
Always turn the surface units off before removing cookware.
Keep an eye on foods being fried at high or medium high heat settings.
Be careful when placing spoons or other stirring utensils on the glass cooktop
surface when it is in use. They may become hot and could cause burns.
Do not lift the cooktop. Lifting the cooktop can lead to damage and
improper operation of the range.
Never use the glass cooktop surface as a cutting board.
Do not operate the cooktop when there is no cookware.

features of your new range
Enhanced convenience. Better cooking. Easy maintenance. Your new electric range has been designed to
bring you these benefits and more.
• The latest in heat-distribution technology
Other ranges with just one fan tend to make a swirl of heat that fails to cover the whole inside of
the oven. This means uneven heat distribution and uneven cooking. Your new range has Surround
Airvection™, which Samsung enhanced by adding a third heating element and a multi-fan system
that circulates the heat evenly in all directions. You get more efficient energy consumption and
more even cooking.
• Steam Quick cleaning
Thanks to Steam Quick™, Samsung’s unique technology for light-duty cleaning jobs, keeping
your oven spick-and-span is a snap — no hassle, no odor, no chemicals. Steam Quick™ cleans
the inside of your range with high-temperature steam in just 20 minutes.
• Bigger is better
With a capacity of 5.9 cubic feet, your new range is equipped with more space than any of its
competitors in the U.S. market. This means greater convenience for you when cooking for the
holidays or when entertaining.
• Induction Cooktop Features
Fast and Efficient - Induction cooking heats faster while using less energy. Induction power
levels are quick to boil and efficient when simmering.
A Cooler Cooktop - A unique feature of the Induction Cooktop Is, whether ON or OFF, the
cooktop surface remains cooler than Radiant ceramic style cooktops. Virtually no wasted heat is
produced since induction elements heat only when covered by a pan.
Easy Clean-ups - The cooler cooktop surface (when compared to a Radiant cooktop) makes
clean-ups easier. Spills resist sticking or burning so they wipe up easier.
Magnetic Detector - The coil sensor automatically detects whether a pan is magnetic and
eliminates any accidental “turn-ons”. No need to worry if you accidently set a plastic or wooden
spatula or spoon down on an induction element.
Pan Size Detection - The pan size recognition sensor automatically detects and adapts the
Cooking Zones to the pan sizes in use for consistent, more even cooking.
More Responsive - Induction cooktops are more responsive than their electric or gas
counterparts because only the pan heats. This type of cooking heats easier and is just as
responsive when reduced to a simmer.
Flexcook Zone - Lets you use a giant pan or griddle, which does not fit on a conventional sized
heating element, by combining the two left side Induction elements into one.
Boil Alert - After water is boiling, the Boil Alert function automatically reduces power to a power
level you have selected and sounds a signal.
CAUTION -The Cooking Zones may appear to be cool while turned ON and after they have been
turned OFF. The ceramic glass surface may be HOT from residual heat transfered from the
cookware and burns may occur.

WARNING
WARNING
THE BOIL ALERT FEATURE IS NOT AN AUTOMATED SAFETY DEVICE. AS WITH ALL OTHER
TYPES OF COOKING APPLIANCES, NEVER LEAVE THE INDUCTION COOKTOP UNATTENDED
WHEN IT IS IN OPERATION, EVEN WHEN BOIL ALERT IS ACTIVATED. THE CONTENTS OF
UNATTENDED COOKWARE MAY BOIL OVER, POSING A RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS OR
DAMAGE TO PROPERTY FROM EXTREMELY HOT LIQUIDS OR FIRE.
USE THE BOIL ALERT FUNCTION ONLY TO BOIL WATER. COMBINING OTHER
INGREDIENTS(E.G. RICE, PASTA, POTATOES) WITH WATER WHILE USING THE BOIL ALERT

2013-05-23 �� 3:17:31
Please note that the power level control pads(+/-,boost,simmer) are disabled once you
activate the Boil alert function. This is not a defect. Please refer to the above text for
instructions on how to change power levels during Boil alert operation.
The length of time it takes for the Boil alert beep to go off after the water reached the
boiling point will vary. Factors that determine the timing of the alert beep include cookware
diameter, amount of water in the cookware, the flatness of the cookware bottom
surface(the flatter, the better) and iron content of cookware.
Since the Boil alert only works on the 11” element, we recommend that you use cookware
that is at least 7.5” in surface diameter to enjoy the full benefit of Boil alert.
BEFORE USING THE COOKTOP
The cookware used with the cooktop surface should have flat bottoms that make good contact
with the entire surface of the Cooking Zone. Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the
bottom of the cookware. Be sure to follow all the recommendations for using cookware.
Also remember to:
• Use cookware made with the correct material for induction cooking. See the “Correct
Cookware Type” (28 page).
INDUCTION COOKING
Use quality cookware in good condition
• Use quality cookware with heavier bottoms for better heat distribution allowing for more even
cooking results.
• The pan size should match the amount of food being prepared.
• Do not let pans boil dry. This may cause permanent damage in the form of breakage, fusion,
or marring that can affect the ceramic cooktop. (This type of damage is not covered by your
warranty).
• Do not use dirty pans with grease buildup. Always use pans that are easy to clean after
cooking.
CAUTION
• The Cooking Zones may appear to be cool while turned ON and after they have been
turned OFF. The glass surface may be HOT from residual heat transfered from the
cookware and burns may occur.
CAUTION
• DO NOT TOUCH HOT COOKWARE or PANS directly with your hands. Always
use oven mitts or pot holders to protect your hands from burns.
CAUTION
• DO NOT SLIDE cookware across the cooktop surface. Doing so may
permanently damage the appearance of the ceramic cooktop.

• Curved or warped pan bottoms or sides.
• Flat pan bottom & straight sides.
• Pan does not meet the minimum size
• Pan size meets or exceeds the recommended
required for the Cooking Zone used. See the
minimum size for the Cooking Zone. See the
“Size of pans” section (28 page).
“Size of pans” section (28 page).
• Pan bottom rests on cooktop trim or does
not rest completely on the cooktop surface.
• Pan rests completely on the Cooktop surface.
• Heavy handle tilts pan.
• Pan is properly balanced.
ANY one of the incorrect conditions listed above may be detected by the sensors located
below the ceramic cooktop surface. If the cookware does not meet one or more of these
conditions, one or more of the Cooking Zones will not heat, and settings will flash in the
affected Cooking Zone display. Correct the problems before attempting to activate the
cooktop.

Cookware for induction cooking zone is labelled as suitable by the manufacturer.
Certain cookware can make noise when being used on induction cooking zones. These
noise are not a fault in the appliance and do not affect operation in any way.
USE THE CORRECT SIZE COOKWARE
INDUCTION COOKING
Aluminium, Copper, Brass
• The Induction Cooking Zones require a minimum pan size to be used at each location. The
inner ring of each Cooking Zone is your guide to the correct minimum pan size. The pan
bottom must fully cover the inner ring for proper cooking to occur.
• The thicker outer ring at each Cooking Zone is helpful to determine the maximum pan size.
After centering the cookware on the cooktop, make sure the cookware does not extend more
than 1/2” beyond the thicker line on the Cooking Zone. The pan must fully contact the glass
surface without the bottom of the pan touching the metal cooktop trim.
If a pan made of the correct material is centered properly on any of the active Cooking Zones
but is too small, the affected Cooking Zone display will flash and the pan will not heat.
SIZE OF PANS
Induction cooking zones adapt automatically to the size of the bottom of the cookware up to a
certain limit. However the magnetic part of the bottom of the cookware must have a minimum
diameter depending upon the size of the cooking zone.

OPERATING NOISES
You may hear the following operating noises:
• Cracking noises : The cookware you are using is made of two or more different materials.
• Whistling : You are using more than two cooking zones and the cookware you are using is
made of two or more different materials.
• Humming : You are using high power levels.
• Clicking : Electric switches are operating.
• Hissing, Buzzing : The cooling fan is operating.
These noises are normal and do not indicate any defects.
USING SUITABLE INDUCTION COOKWARE
Suitability test
Cookware is suitable for induction cooking if a magnet sticks
to the bottom of the cookware and the cookware is labelled
as suitable by the cookware manufacturer.
Better pans produce better results
• You can recognize good pans by their bases. The base should be as thick and flat as possible.
• When buying new pans, pay particular attention to the diameter of the base. Manufacturers
often give only the diameter of the upper rim.
• Do not use pans which have damaged bases with rough edges or burrs. You can scratch the
ceramic cooktop permanently if you slide a pan with a damaged base across the surface.
• When cold, pan bases are normally bowed slightly inwards (concave). They should never be
bowed outwards (convex).
• If you wish to use a special type of pan, for example, a pressure cooker, a simmering pan, or a
wok, please observe the manufacturer’s instructions.
Energy saving tips
You can save valuable energy by observing the following points:
• Always position pots and pans before switching on the cooking zone.
• Dirty cooking zones and pan bases increase power consumption.
Right!
• When possible, position the lids firmly on pots and pans so that the
lids cover them completely.
• Switch the cooking zones off before the end of the cooking time to
use the residual heat for keeping foods warm or for thawing.
Wrong!
Wrong!

2013-05-23 �� 3:17:32
TEMPERATURE DETECTION
If for any reason the temperatures on any of the cooking zones were to exceed the safety levels,
then the cooking zone will automatically reduce the heat to a lower power level.
When you have finished using the cooktop, the cooling fan will continue to run until the cooktop’s
electronics have cooled down. The cooling fan switches itself on and off depending upon the
termperature of the electronics.
Power Management
1
If you cause a cooking zone to exceed its maximum
allowed power by switching on the Power Boost function,
the Power Management function automatically reduces
the power setting of the two elements in the cooking zone
and reduces the power draw.
2
For example, the right side elements No.1 and No.2 are a
cooking zone. If you have one element set at Hi, and turn
on the Power Boost function for the other element, the Power Management function reduces the
power settings of one of the elements as described in the tables below.
INDUCTION COOKING
The cooking zones, which consist of paired cooking
elements, are restricted to drawing a certain maximum
amount of power.

PROTECTING THE COOKTOP SURFACE
Cleaning
• Clean the cooktop before using it for the first time.
• Clean your cooktop daily or after each use. This will keep your cooktop looking good and can
prevent damage.
• If a spillover occurs while cooking, immediately clean the spill from the cooking area while it is
hot to prevent a tough cleaning chore later. Using extreme care, wipe the spill with a clean dry
towel.
• Do not allow spills to remain on the cooking area or the cooktop trim for a long period of time.
• Do not use abrasive cleansing powders or scouring pads, which will scratch the cooktop.
• Do not use chlorine bleach, ammonia, or other cleansers not specifically recommended for use
on a glass-ceramic surface.
Preventing marks and scratches
• Do not use glass cookware. It may scratch the cooktop.
• Do not place a trivet or wok ring between the cooktop and the pan. These items can mark or
scratch the cooktop.
• Make sure the cooktop and the pan bottom are clean.
• Do not slide metal pans across the cooktop.
Preventing stains
• Do not use a soiled dish cloth or sponge to clean the cooktop surface. A film will remain, which
may cause stains on the cooking surface after the area is heated.
• Continuously cooking on a soiled surface may result in a permanent stain.
Preventing other damage
• Do not allow plastic, sugar, or foods with high sugar content to melt onto the hot cooktop.
Should this happen, clean immediately.
• Do not let a pan boil dry as this will damage the cooktop and the pan.
• Do not use the cooktop as a work surface or cutting board.
• Do not cook food directly on the cooktop. Always cook food in the proper cookware.

using the warming drawer
ABOUT THE WARMING DRAWER
The warming drawer will keep hot,
cooked foods warm. Always start with hot
food. Do not use to warm cold food other
than bread, crackers, chips or dry cereal.
• Do not line the warming drawer or pan with aluminum foil. Foil is an excellent heat
insulator and will trap heat beneath it. This will upset the performance of the drawer
and could damage the interior finish.
WARMING DRAWER
Allow approximately 25 minutes for the
warming drawer to preheat.
• Do not put liquid or water in the warming drawer.
• All foods placed in the warming drawer should be covered with a lid. When warming pastries or
breads, the cover should be vented to allow moisture to escape.
• Remove serving spoons, etc., before placing containers in the warming drawer.
• Food should be kept hot in its cooking container or transferred to a heat-safe serving dish.
Plastic containers or plastic wrap will melt if in direct contact with the drawer, pan or a
hot utensil. Melted plastic may not be removable and is not covered under your warranty.

Before using the racks
The oven has three racks.
Each rack has stops that need to be placed correctly on the supports. These stops will keep the
rack from coming completely out.
Split rack
The right side of the split rack can be removed to accommodate a large roaster on the lower rack.
- The removable section of the Split Rack can be used as a roasting rack in the broiling pan.
- Be careful when removing cooked food from the split rack to avoid burns.
REMOVING THE RACKS
REPLACING THE RACKS
1. Pull the rack straight out until it stops.
1. Place the end of the rack on the support.
2. Lift up the front of the rack and pull it out.
2. Tilt the front end up and push the rack in.
CAUTION
• Do not cover a rack with aluminum foil or place on the oven bottom. This will disturb
the heat circulation, resulting in poor baking, and may damage the oven bottom.
• Arrange the oven racks only when the oven is cool.

CONVECTION BAKING
7
6
By using the convection bake feature, you will be able
to cook faster. You can program the oven for convection
baking at any temperature between 150°F and 550°F.
5
Convection baking uses a fan to circulate the oven’s heat
evenly and continuously within the oven. This improved
heat distribution allows for even cooking and excellent
2
results using multiple racks at the same time. Foods
1
cooked on a single oven rack will generally cook faster
and more evenly with convection baking. Multiple oven
rack cooking may slightly increase cook times for some foods, but the overall result is time saved.
Breads and pastries brown more evenly.
4
3
Tips for convection baking
The amount of time you save will vary depending on the amount and type of food you are
cooking. When baking cookies or biscuits, you should use pans with no sides or very low sides
to allow the heated air to circulate around the food. Using a pan with a dark finish will allow faster
cooking times.
When using convection baking with a single rack, place the oven rack in position 4. If cooking on
multiple racks, place the oven racks in positions 2 and 5 or 3, and 6.
When baking a cake, using the bake mode will produce better results.
How to set the oven for convection baking
1. Start the convection baking mode.
Press the CONV. BAKE pad. The default temperature is 350°F.
2. Enter the temperature you want, eg. 400°F, using the number pad.
3. Press the START/SET pad to begin convection baking.
Conv. Bake and the adjusted oven temperature, eg. 400°F, will
appear in the display for 2 seconds.
The temperature display will start to change once the oven
temperature reaches 150°F.
A beep will sound 6 times when the oven reaches the adjusted
oven temperature.
4. To turn off or cancel convection baking, press the CLEAR/OFF
pad.
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 or you
may shorten the life of the convection heating element.

CONVECTION ROASTING
Convection roasting is good for cooking large tender cuts of meat, uncovered.
Heat comes from the top heating element. The convection fan circulates the heated air evenly
over and around the food. Meat and poultry are browned on all sides as if they were cooked on a
rotisserie. The heated air seals in juices quickly for a moist and tender product while, at the same
time, creating a rich golden brown exterior.
How to set the oven for convection roasting
1. Start the convection roasting mode.
Press the CONV. ROAST pad. The default temperature is 350°F.
2. Enter the temperature you want, eg. 400°F, using the number pad.
3. Press the START/SET pad to begin convection roasting.
Conv. Roast and the adjusted oven temperature, eg. 400°F, will
appear in the display for 2 seconds.
The temperature display will start to change once the oven
temperature reaches 150°F.
A beep will sound 6 times when the oven reaches the adjusted
oven temperature.
4. To turn off or cancel convection roasting, press the CLEAR/ OFF
pad.
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 or you
may shorten the life of the convection heating element.

SELF-CLEANING
This self-cleaning oven uses high temperatures (well above cooking temperatures) to burn off
leftover grease and residue completely or reduce them to a finely powdered ash that you can wipe
away with a damp cloth.
• Some birds can be sickened by the fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of
any range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.
• Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom, or any other part of the range with
aluminum foil. Doing so will result in poor heat distribution, produce poor baking
results, and cause permanent damage to the oven interior. Aluminum foil will melt and
adhere to the interior surface of the oven.
• Do not force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking
system. Use care when opening the oven door after the self-cleaning cycle is
complete. Stand to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow hot air or
steam to escape. The oven may still be VERY HOT.
Before a self-cleaning cycle
MAINTAINING YOUR APPLIANCE
• During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the range will become very hot to the
touch. Do not leave small children unattended near the appliance.
• We recommend venting your kitchen with an open window
or using a ventilation fan or hood during the self-cleaning
cycle.
Fig. 1
• Remove the wire rack, broil pan, broil pan insert, all
cookware, and any aluminum foil from the oven.
• Wipe up debris from the oven bottom. (Fig. 1)
• The silver-colored oven racks can be self-cleaned, but they
will darken, lose their luster, and become hard to slide.
Fig. 2
Don’t hand
clean the
oven door
gasket.
You may
hand clean
the door.
• Residue on the front frame of the range and outside the
gasket on the door will need to be cleaned by hand. Clean
these areas with hot water, soap-filled steel-wool pads, or
cleansers such as Soft Scrub. Rinse well with clean water
and dry.
• Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass material of the oven
door gasket cannot withstand abrasion. It is essential for
the gasket to remain intact. If you notice it becoming worn
or frayed, replace it. (Fig. 2)
• Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in place and the
oven light is off.

STEAM-CLEANING
How to set the oven for steam-cleaning
For light cleaning, the Steam-cleaning function saves time and energy. For heavier-duty cleaning of
debris and grease, use the self-cleaning function.
1. Remove all accessories from the oven.
2. Pour approximately 10 oz. (300 ml) of water onto the bottom of the
empty oven and close the oven door.
Use normal water only, no distilled water.
MAINTAINING YOUR APPLIANCE
3. Press the STEAM CLEAN pad.
4. Press the START/SET pad.

6. Clean the oven’s interior.
There will be a significant amount of water remaining on the
bottom of the oven after a steam-cleaning cycle. Remove the
residual water with a sponge or soft dry cloth.
When steam-cleaning, use exactly 10 oz. of water since this produces the best results.
If you press the STEAM CLEAN pad when the oven temperature is above 100˚F, Hot will
appear in the display. Because these functions produce the best results when started while
the oven is cool, we recommend that you wait until the oven has cooled down and Hot
disappears from the display.
After a steam-cleaning cycle
• Take care when opening the door before a steam-cleaning procedure has ended. The water on
the bottom is hot.
• Open the oven door and remove the remaining water with a sponge. Do not leave the residual
water in the oven for any length of time. Wipe the oven clean and dry with a soft cloth. Do not
forget to wipe under the oven door seal.
• Use a detergent-soaked sponge, a soft brush, or a nylon scrubber to wipe the oven interior.
Remove stubborn residue with a nylon scourer. You can remove lime deposits with a cloth
soaked in vinegar.
• If the oven remains dirty, you can repeat the procedure once the oven has cooled.
• For heavy residue, such as grease left over from roasting, we recommend that you rub
detergent into the residue before activating the steam-cleaning function.
• After cleaning, leave the oven door ajar at a 15° angle to allow the interior enamel surface to dry
thoroughly.
