especially surface unit drip bowls or oven bottom. Installation of these liners
may result in a risk of electric shock or fire.
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. Aluminum foil linings may also trap
heat, causing a fire hazard.
•
•
•
•
•
•
If materials inside an oven or warming drawer should ignite, keep door closed.
Turn off the appliance and disconnect the circuit at the circuit breaker box.
Use this appliance only for its intended use as described in this manual. For
example, never use the appliance for warming or heating the room. Never use
the appliance for storage.
Do not allow aluminum foil, plastic, paper or cloth to come in contact with a
hot burner or grate. Do not allow pans to boil dry.
If the cooktop is near a window, forced air vent, or fan, be certain that flammable materials such as window coverings do not blow over or near the burners
or elements. They could catch on fire.
Always have a working smoke detector near the kitchen.
Never leave the cooktop unattended when in use. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers may ignite.
WARNING –
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE:
1) Never leave surface units unattended at high settings. Boilovers cause
smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite. Heat oils slowly on low or
medium settings.
2) Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat or when flambéing food
(i.e. Crepes Suzette, Cherries Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef Flambe’).
3) Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on fan or filter.
4) Use proper pan size. Always use cookware appropriate for the size of the
surface element.

easily accessible near the oven.
Smother flames from food fires other than grease fires with baking soda.
Never use water on cooking fires.
Safety
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS IN THE EVENT OF A
RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:
1) SMOTHER FLAMES with a close-fitting lid, cookie sheet, or metal tray,
then turn off the burner. BE CAREFUL TO PREVENT BURNS. If the
flames do not go out immediately, EVACUATE AND CALL THE FIRE
DEPARTMENT.
2) NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN – You may be burned.
3) DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths or towels – a violent
steam explosion will result
4) Use an extinguisher ONLY if:
a) You know you have a Class ABC extinguisher, and you already know
how to operate it.
b) The fire is small and contained in the area where it started.
c) The fire department is being called.
d) You can fight the fire with your back toward an exit..
Burn Prevention
•
Whenever possible, do not operate the ventilation system during a cooktop
fire. However, do not reach through fire to turn it off.
•
DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR UNITS - Surface
units may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near surface units
may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch,
or let clothing, potholders, or other flammable materials contact surface units
or areas near units until they have had sufficient time to cool. Among these
areas are the cooktop and areas facing the cooktop.
DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF
OVEN - Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color.
Interior surfaces of an oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and
after use, do not touch, or let clothing, potholders, or other flammable materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until they have had
sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the appliance may become hot
enough to cause burns. Among these surfaces are oven vent openings, surfaces near these openings and oven doors.
Exercise caution when opening the appliance. Standing to the side, open the
door (or drawer) slowly and slightly to let hot air and/or steam escape. Keep
your face clear of the opening and make sure there are no children or pets
near the unit. After the release of hot air and/or steam, proceed with your
cooking. Keep doors shut unless necessary for cooking or cleaning purposes.
Do not leave open doors unattended.
Do not heat or warm unopened food containers. Build-up of pressure may
cause the container to burst and cause injury.
Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If a rack must
be moved while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact the heating elements.
Always use dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may
result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch hot heating elements.
Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth.
Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat or when flambéing food (i.e.
Crepes Suzette, Cherries Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef Flambe’).
Use high heat settings on the cooktop only when necessary. To avoid bubbling and splattering, heat oil slowly on no more than a low-medium setting.
Hot oil is capable of causing extreme burns and injury.
Never move a pan of hot oil, especially a deep fat fryer. Wait until it is cool.
Secure all loose garments, etc. before beginning. Tie long hair so that it does
not hang loose, and do not wear loose fitting clothing or hanging garments,
such as ties, scarves, jewelry, or dangling sleeves.
Avoid reaching or leaning over the appliance. Be aware that certain clothing
and hair sprays may contain flammable chemicals that could be ignited if
brought in contact with hot surface units or heating elements and may cause
severe burns.

•
Do not touch interior surface of the drawer while it is in use. The interior of the
drawer could become hot enough to cause burns. Allow drawer and rack (if
equipped) to cool before handling.
WARNING:
To prevent burns, do not remove drawer while hot. Be sure drawer is empty
before removing.
Child Safety
•
•
•
When children become old enough to use the appliance, it is the legal responsibility of the parents or legal guardians to ensure that they are instructed in
safe practices by qualified persons.
Do not allow anyone to climb, stand, lean, sit, or hang on any part of an appliance, especially a door, warming drawer, or storage drawer. This can damage
the appliance, and the unit may tip over, potentially causing severe injury.
Do not allow children to use this appliance unless closely supervised by an
adult. Children and pets should not be left alone or unattended in the area
where the appliance is in use. They should never be allowed to play in its
vicinity, whether or not the appliance is in use.
CAUTION:
Items of interest to children should not be stored in an appliance, in cabinets
above an appliance or on the backsplash. Children climbing on an appliance to
reach items could be seriously injured.
Cleaning Safety
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE:
The California Safe Drinking 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. The burning of gas cooking fuel and the
elimination of soil during self-cleaning can generate small amounts of Carbon
Monoxide.The fiberglass insulation in self-clean ovens gives off very small
amounts of formaldehyde during the first several cleaning cycles. California lists
formaldehyde as a potential cause of cancer. Carbon Monoxide is a potential
cause of reproductive toxicity.Exposure to these substances can be minimized by:
1) Providing good ventilation when cooking with gas.
2) Providing good ventilation during and immediately after self cleaning the
oven.
3) Operating the unit according to the instructions in this manual.

English 4
Do not clean the appliance while it is still hot. Some cleaners produce noxious
fumes when applied to a hot surface. Wet cloths or sponges can cause burns
from steam.
When self-cleaning, confirm that the door locks and will not open. If the door
does not lock, do not run Self-Clean. Contact service.
Birds have very sensitive respiratory systems. Keep pet birds out of the
kitchen or other rooms where kitchen fumes could reach them. During self
clean, fumes are released that may be harmful to birds. Other kitchen fumes
such as overheating margarines and cooking oils may also be harmful.
Keep oven free from grease build up.
Do not place food directly on oven bottom.
Follow the manufacturer’s directions when using cooking or roasting bags.
Hold the handle of the pan when stirring or turning food. This helps prevent
spills and movement of the pan.
Use Proper Pan Size. The use of undersized cookware will expose a portion
of the heating element or burner to direct contact and may result in ignition of
clothing. Select cookware having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface heating unit. This appliance is equipped with one or more surface units of

different size. Proper relationship of cookware to heating element or burner
will also improve efficiency.
Cookware not approved for use with glass ceramic cooktops may break with
sudden temperature changes. Use only pans that are appropriate for glass
ceramic cooktops (only certain types of glass, heatproof glass, ceramic,
earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable). See Cookware Selection
Guide for further details.
Always position handles of utensils inward so they do not extend over adjacent work areas, burners, or the edge of the cooktop. This reduces the risk of
fires, spills and burns.
CAUTION:
Plastic containers or plastic wrap can melt if in direct contact with the drawer or a
hot utensil. If it melts onto the drawer, it may not be removable.

Radiant Element
The radiant element uses a wire ribbon located under the glass ceramic surface to
provide the heat for cooking. The radiant element will cycle on and off by design
(see Temperature Limiter).
Dual Element
The dual element consists of two radiant ribbon elements within the same heating
area. Either the small inner element or both the inner and outer elements may be
selected for use, in order to better match the size of cookware.
Triple Element
The triple element consists of three (small, medium and large) radiant ribbon elements within the same heating area. Either the small element, the small and
medium element or all three elements may be selected for use, in order to better
match the size of cookware.
Retained Heat
The glass cooking surface retains heat and stays hot after the element(s) have
been turned off. The retained heat may be used to hold foods at serving temperatures for a short time. If a hot surface light is on, use caution when working or
cleaning around the cooktop as the cooktop is still hot.
English 7
Getting Started
Temperature Limiter
Each radiant heating element has its own sensor to protect the glass cooking surface from extreme high temperatures. The limiters will operate automatically by
cycling the element off regardless of the cook setting.
Although cycling is normal, any one of the following conditions can activate the
limiter and cause it to cycle on and off more than usual:
•
•
•
•
The base of the pan is not making full contact with the heating surface (due to
a warped or uneven base).
The pan is too small for the element.
The pan has boiled dry.
The material or shape of the pan is slow to transfer the heat.
Hot Surface Indicator
The cooktop displays a hot indicator light to show when the cooking surface is too
hot to touch. If a hot surface light is on, use caution when working or cleaning
around the cooktop as the cooktop is still hot.
Oven Racks
Depending on model, the range is equipped with one of the following combinations:
•
•
•
Flat Oven Racks
Three flat racks
Two flat racks and one full extension rack
Two flat racks and one half rack
The racks are designed with a stop so they will stop before coming completely out
of the oven and not tilt.
CAUTION
To avoid burns, place oven racks in desired positions before turning
oven on. Always use oven mitts when the oven is warm.If a rack must
be moved while the oven is hot, do not let oven mitts contact hot heating elements.

Boiling Water
Time to boil can vary greatly depending on environmental conditions. Try the following tips to decrease boil time:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Recommended Settings
Use a lid.
Use a pan that is appropriately sized for the amount of water and the size of
the element.
Select a pan with a flat base (See “Cookware Selection Guide” on page 25 for
details).
Choose a medium-weight pan (rather than a heavy-weight one).
Make sure that the pan is positioned so that the entire base is in contact with
the element.
Boil the smallest amount of water necessary. Smaller volumes will boil faster
than larger volumes.
Use this chart as a guide for heat settings. A range of heat settings are listed
because the actual setting depends on:
•
•
•
•
type and quality of pan (See “Selecting Cookware”),
type, quantity and temperature of the food,
element used and
the cook’s preference.
The Heat Settings recommended are based on a 240 volt power source. If your
cooktop is connected to 208 volts, the same heat settings apply but foods may
take a little longer to finish cooking.

Cookware Selection
Guide
Cookware Characteristics
Pan selection directly affects cooking speed and uniformity. For best results select
pans with flat bases. When a pan is hot, the base (pan bottom) should rest evenly
English 25
Getting the Most Out of Your Appliance
on the surface without wobbling (rocking). Flat, medium-to-heavy-weight pans are
best.
To Test the Flatness of Your Pans
Turn the pan upside down on the countertop and place a
ruler flat against the bottom of the pan. The bottom of the
pan and the straight edge of the ruler should be flush
against each other.
Another simple test to determine even heat distribution across the cookware bottom is to place 1”
(25.4 mm) of water in the pan. Bring the water to a
boil and observe the location of the bubbles as the
water starts to boil. Good, flat cookware will have
an even distribution of bubbles over the bottom
surface area.
Matching Diameters – The base of the pan should cover or match the diameter
of the element being used. Pans may overhang the element area by 1" (25.4 mm)
all around.
Tight Fitting Lids – A lid shortens cooking/boiling time by holding heat inside the
pot.
Cookware Tips
•
•
•
•
•
Specialty Pans
English 26
Use of pots and pans with rounded (either concave or convex) warped or
dented bottoms should be avoided. See drawings below.
Make sure the bottom of the pot or pan being used is clean and dry.
Use pots and pans with thick, smooth metal bottoms.
Do not slide metal pots across the cooktop. Pans may leave marks which
need to be removed immediately. See Care and Cleaning Section.
Do not use glass pans as they may scratch the surface.
Specialty pans such as griddles, roasters, pressure cookers, woks, water bath
canners and pressure canners must have the same features as described above.
Use only a flat-bottomed wok. Never place a support ring, such as a wok ring or
trivet, on the cooking surface.

Three rack: (for convection bake): Use positions 1, 3 and 6. The rack in position 3 can be an extension rack a half rack if desired.
Baking results are better if pans are placed in the center of the oven. If baking
more than one pan on a rack, allow at least 1" to 1 ½” of air space around the pan.
When baking four cake layers at the same time, stagger pans on two racks so that
one pan is not directly above the other. To allow for best baking results stagger
pans as shown in the graphic below.

Baking Pans
Here are some tips for cooking with baking pans:
•
•
•
•
•
Preheating the Oven
Glass baking dishes absorb heat, therefore reduce oven temperature 25°F
when baking in glass.
Shiny, smooth metal reflects heat resulting in lighter, more delicate browning.
Dark, rough or dull pans will absorb heat resulting in browner, crisper crust.
Some manufacturers recommend reducing temperature 25° F when using
these pans. Follow manufacturer recommendations.
Use glass or dark metal pans for pies.
Insulated baking pans may increase the recommended baking time.
Preheat the oven if the recipe recommends it. Preheating is necessary for good
results when baking cakes, cookies, pastry and breads. Setting a higher temperature does not shorten preheat time. Place oven racks in proper position before
preheating. A beep will confirm that oven is preheated and selected oven temperature will be displayed.
English 27
Getting the Most Out of Your Appliance
Note: Preheating the oven is not recommended when using the probe (some
models). A hot oven will impair your ability to easily connect the probe to the
receptacle and to insert it into the meat.
The Probe (some models)
•
•
•
•
•
The oven is well insulated and the retained heat will continue to cook the meat
after the oven has shut off. For this reason, remove the meat from the oven as
soon as the control beeps.
Since meat continues to cook after being removed from the oven, set the
internal (probe) temperature 5 - 10 degrees below the desired final internal
temperature (exception: poultry). Allow standing time (10 -20 minutes) before
carving the meat.
Always use the handle of the probe for inserting and removing. Use a
potholder to remove since the probe becomes hot.
Remove the probe from the oven when it is not being used.
The probe cannot be used with frozen meats. For best results, completely
thaw meats before using the probe.
Inserting the Probe
•
•
•
For meats, insert the probe tip into the thickest part and do not touch bone,
fat, or gristle.
For large poultry products and turkeys, insert the probe in the thickest part of
the inner thigh.
For other foods, such as a meatloaf, the probe tip should be located in the
center of the thickest part of the food.
Oven Cooking Modes
Bake, Proof and Warm
Baking is cooking with dry, heated air. Both the
upper and lower element cycle to maintain the oven
temperature. Bake mode can be used to prepare
foods like pastries and casseroles as well as to
roast meats.
Note: Depending on the model, you may hear the
convection fan while the oven is preheating for the
bake mode. This is normal.
In the Proofing mode, the oven will use the upper and lower element to maintain a
low temperature to proof bread.
•
•
•
•
Proofing is the rising of a yeast dough.
The Proofing mode temperatures are 85° to 110° F. The default temperature
is 100° F.
Loosely cover the bowl or pan and use any rack that accommodates the size
of the container.
Keep the door closed and use the oven light to check the rising of the dough.
In Warming mode, the upper and lower elements maintain a low temperature in
the oven cavity in order to keep food at serving temperature.
•
•
•
English 28
Use the Warming setting on the oven to keep foods hot until ready to serve.
Warming mode temperatures are 140° - 220° F. Default temperature is 170°.
Foods that must be kept moist should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil.

CAUTION
When using Warm mode, follow these guidelines:
•Do not use the Warm Mode to heat cold food.
•Be sure to maintain proper food temperature. The USDA recommends holding hot food at 140°F or warmer.
•DO NOT warm food for longer than one hour.
Convection Bake
Convection baking is similar to baking. Heat
comes from the lower heating element and a
third element behind the backwall. The main difference in convection baking is that the heat is
circulated throughout the oven by the convection
fan.
The Convection Bake mode is well-suited for
baking large quantities of food on multiple racks.
It can be used to prepare cookies, pies, cupcakes, pastries, breads, snack foods
and appetizers among other items.
The benefits of Convection Baking include:
•
•
•
•
Slight decrease in cooking time
Three rack cooking (more even browning)
Higher Volume (yeast items rise higher)
Ability to cook more items at once
For Best Results:
•
•
•
Automatic Convection Conversion
Reduce recipe temperature by 25° F. Refer to Convection Baking chart.
Place food in low-sided, uncovered pans such as cookie sheets without sides.
Center baking pans side to side on the oven rack
In the convection bake mode, the temperature is automatically reduced 25° F
from the package or recipe temperature. Simply enter the package or recipe temperature when setting the mode and the range calculates the correct temperature.
The Automatic Convection Conversion feature can be turned off to allow for manual temperature adjustment. See “Turn Automatic Convection Conversion ON or
OFF” on page 16 for details
When the Automatic Convection Conversion feature is activated, the display will
read AUTO CONV BAKE. When the feature is turned off, it will read CONV BAKE.

Dehydrate
(some models)
The dehydrate mode dries with heat from a third
element behind the back wall of the oven. The
heat is circulated throughout the oven by the
convection fan. Use dehydrate to dry and/or preserve foods such as fruits, vegetables and herbs.
This mode holds an optimum low temperature
(100° F - 160° F) while circulating the heated air
to slowly remove moisture. The oven will stay on
for 48 hours before shutting off automatically.
For Best Results:
•
•
•
•
•
Dry most fruits and vegetables at 140° F. Dry herbs at 100° F. (Refer to the
Dehydrate Chart for examples).
Drying times vary depending on the moisture and sugar content of the food,
the size of the pieces, the amount being dried and the humidity in the air.
Check food at the minimum drying time.
Multiple racks (not included) can be used simultaneously. Contact your dealer
to order drying racks.
Treat fruits with antioxidants to avoid discoloration.
Consult a food preservation book, county Cooperative Extension Office or

Care and Cleaning
Care and Cleaning the Cooktop
Precautions for Long Life and Good
Appearance of the Surface
CAUTION
Do not use any cleaner on the glass while the surface is hot; use only
the razor blade scraper. The resulting fumes can be hazardous to your
health. Heated cleaner can chemically attack and damage surface.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Regular, daily care using the glass ceramic cooktop cleaner will protect the
surface and make it easier to remove food soil and water spots.
The glass ceramic cooking surface is a durable material resistant to impact
but not unbreakable if a pan or other object is dropped on it.
Never cook food directly on the glass.
Avoid placing a wok support ring, trivet or other metal stand on glass surface.
Do not use the glass surface as a cutting board.
Do not slide cookware across the cooking surface; it may scratch the glass.
Do not place wet pans on the glass surface.
Before Use Care
Care is easy when preventative steps are taken. For example, apply a small
amount of glass ceramic cooktop cleaner (packaged with range) on a daily basis.
This provides a protective film that makes it easy to remove water spots or food
spatters. The temperature of the cooking surface reduces the protective qualities
of this cleaner. It must be reapplied before each use. Use a clean cloth and apply
glass ceramic cooktop cleaner before each use to remove dust or metal marks
that can occur on the counter level surface between uses.
Daily Cleaning Techniques
1. Clean the surface when completely cool with the glass ceramic cooktop
cleaner.
Exception: Remove dry sugar, sugar syrup, tomato products and milk immediately with the razor blade scraper (See Cooktop Care Chart, next page).
2. Wipe off spatters with a clean, damp sponge or paper towel. Rinse and dry.
Use white vinegar if smudge remains; rinse.
3. Apply a small amount of the glass ceramic cooktop cleaner. When dry, buff
surface with a clean paper towel or cloth.
Using the Razor Blade Scraper
Use the scraper to remove dried or baked on foods. Hold the scraper at a 30°
angle. Move it over the soil to lift it off of the cooktop. Finish with a clean, damp
sponge or paper towel. Apply white vinegar if smudge remains and rinse.
Figure 15: Scraper
Cleaning the Control Knobs
1. Pull out and off to remove both knob. Wipe with hot, soapy cloth, rinse and
dry. Do not soak.
2. To replace, push knob straight onto shaft.
English 35
Cleaning and Maintenance
Do Not Use the Following Cleaners
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Glass cleaners which contain ammonia or chlorine bleach. These ingredients
may permanently etch or stain the cooktop.
Caustic Cleaners
Oven cleaners such as Easy Off® may etch the cooktop surface.
Abrasive Cleaners
Metal scouring pads and scrub sponges such as Scotch Brite® can scratch
and/ or leave metal marks.
Soap-filled scouring pads such as SOS® can scratch the surface.
Powdery cleaners containing chlorine bleach can permanently stain cooktop.
Flammable cleaners such as lighter fluid or WD-40.
Table 9: Cooktop Care Chart
Type of Soil
Possible Solution
Dry sugar, sugar syrup, milk or tomato spills.
Melted plastic film or foil. All these items
require immediate removal. Remove only
these types of spills while the surface is hot
using the razor blade scraper. Be sure to use
a new, sharp razor in your scraper.
Remove pan and turn off the element.
Wearing an oven mitt, hold scraper at 30o angle, using care not to
gouge or scratch the glass. Push soil off the heated area.
After the surface has cooled, remove the residue and apply the glass
ceramic cooktop cleaner.
Burned-on food soil, dark streaks, and
specks
Soften by laying a damp paper towel or sponge on top of soil for about
30 minutes.
Use a plastic scrubber and glass ceramic cooktop cleaner or use the
razor blade scraper. Rinse and dry.
Greasy spatters
Use a soapy sponge or cloth to remove grease; rinse thoroughly and
dry. Apply glass ceramic cooktop cleaner.
Metal marks: Iridescent stain
Pans with aluminum, copper or stainless steel bases may leave marks.
Treat immediately after surface has cooled with glass ceramic cooktop
cleaner. If this does not remove the marks, try a mild abrasive (Bon
Ami®, Soft Scrub® without bleach) with a dampened paper towel.
Rinse and reapply creme. Failure to remove metal marks before the
next heating makes removal very difficult.
Hard Water Spots - Hot cooking liquids
dripped on surface
The minerals in some water can be transferred onto the surface and
cause stains. Use undiluted white vinegar, rinse and dry. Recondition
with glass ceramic cooktop cleaner.
Surface scratches - Small scratches are to
be expected on the glass surface, but do not
affect cooking. In time, small scratches will
become smoother and much less noticeable
with daily use of the glass ceramic cooktop
cleaner.
Apply Cleaning Creme before using to remove sand-like grains and grit
such as salt and seasoning.
Can be reduced by using pans with bases that are smooth, clean, and
dry before use. Use recommended glass ceramic cooktop cleaner daily
on the cooktop.
Care and Cleaning - Oven
Self Cleaning the Oven
Our ovens feature a self-cleaning function that eliminates the manual labor
involved with cleaning your oven. During self-cleaning, the oven uses a very high
temperature to burn away food soil and grease.
•
•
•
•
•
English 36
Wipe out excessive spillage before self-cleaning the oven.
Do not clean parts or accessories in the self-clean oven.
It is common to see smoke and/or an occasional flame-up during the SelfClean cycle, depending on the content and amount of soil remaining in the
oven. If a flame persists, turn off the oven and allow it to cool before opening
the door to wipe up the excessive food soil.
The oven door locks at the beginning of the self-clean cycle.
The oven light does not operate during this mode.
Cleaning and Maintenance
•
•
•
•
•
•
Preparing the Oven for Self Clean
During Self-Clean, the kitchen should be well ventilated to help eliminate
odors associated with Self-Clean. Odors will lessen with use.
Four hours is the preset length of cleaning. The range can also be set to clean
for 3 or 5 hours.
The mode automatically stops at the end of the clean hours.
When the oven cools after cleaning, the automatic door lock will release and
the door can be opened.
To cancel or stop while the mode is operating, press OFF.
The door will not unlock until the oven reaches a safe temperature.
WARNING
A flexible door gasket is necessary for a good seal. Do not clean, rub,
damage or move the gasket.
1. Remove all utensils and bakeware.
2. Remove oven racks. If oven racks are left in the oven during the self-clean
cycle, they will permanently lose the shiny finish and change to a dull dark finish. See Oven Cleaning Chart for proper care.
3. Wipe up excessive soil, spills and grease before self-cleaning the oven.
Excess grease will cause flames and smoke inside the oven during self-cleaning.
Do hand-clean 1 1/2 inches from
rack guides to front of oven cavity.
Do not hand-clean
the gasket.
Do hand-clean frame
area outside the gasket.
Do hand-clean door
area outside the gasket.
Figure 16: Cleaning Guidelines
4. Review illustration above. Some areas of the oven must be cleaned by hand

Recommendations
Racks
Wash with hot sudsy water. Rinse thoroughly and dry, or gently rub with cleansing powder or
soap filled pads as directed. If racks are cleaned in the oven during the self-clean mode, they
will lose their shiny finish and may not glide smoothly. If this happens, wipe the rack edges with
a small amount of vegetable oil, then wipe off excess.
Fiberglass Gasket
DO NOT HAND CLEAN GASKET.
Glass (other than
cooktop)
Wash with soap and water or glass cleaner. Use Fantastik® or Formula 409® to remove grease
spatters and stubborn stains. See “Cooktop Care Chart” on page 36 for cooktop cleaning
instructions.
Painted Surfaces
Clean with hot sudsy water or apply Fantastik® or Formula 409® to a clean sponge or paper
towel and wipe clean. Avoid using powdered cleansers, steel wool pads and oven cleaners.
Porcelain Surfaces
Immediately wipe up acid spills like fruit juice, milk and tomatoes with a dry towel. Do not use a
moistened sponge/towel on hot porcelain. When cool, clean with hot sudsy water or apply BonAmi® or Soft Scrub® to a damp sponge. Rinse and dry. For stubborn stains, use soap filled
pads. It is normal for porcelain to show fine lines with age due to exposure to heat and food soil.
Stainless Surfaces
Always wipe or rub with grain. Clean with a soapy sponge then rinse and dry, or wipe with Fantastik® or Formula 409® sprayed onto a paper towel. Protect and polish with Stainless Steel
Magic® and a soft cloth. Remove water spots with a cloth dampened with white vinegar. Use
Bar Keeper’s Friend® to remove heat discoloration.
Knobs & Controls
When cool, clean with soapy water, rinse and dry.
Warming Drawers
Wash with hot soapy water, rinse and dry.

Self Help
The Cooktop
Use these suggestions before calling for service to avoid service charges.
Table 11: Cooktop Troubleshooting Chart
Cooktop Problem
Possible Causes and Suggested Solutions
Element cycles more than
usual
Pan base is warped and not making full contact with heating surface.
Base diameter of pan is too small for the size of the element.
Pan ingredients have boiled dry.
Material of pan is a poor heat conductor; heat transfers too slowly
A slight odor is noticeable
when an element is turned on
This is normal with new cooktops and will disappear after several uses
Cooktop controls will not turn
on
Range is not receiving power. Check the power source to see if a fuse has blown or if
the circuit breaker tripped. Check cord to see if it is inserted completely into outlet.
Cooktop panel is locked. Press and hold PANEL LOCK until indicator light turns off.
Scraper is not working properly.
The scraper blade is dull. The scraper is packaged with single-edge, stainless steel
blades. Replace with a standard single-edge blade.
Cooking results are not what
was expected.
The cooktop is not level. Adjust leveling legs on bottom of range.
Cooking pan is not the appropriate size or type. See “Cookware Selection Guide”.
Element cycles on the highest
setting
This is normal. The temperature limiter operates automatically to protect the glass
ceramic surface from extreme high temperature damage.
Water takes too long to boil
Time to boil can vary greatly depending on environmental conditions. See “Boiling
Water” on page 25 for tips to decrease time to boil.
White cooktop appears to
have a green tint
The white cooktop may have a green tint while cooling down. This is normal. The cooktop will return to its original color when the glass has cooled.
The Oven
Table 12: Oven Troubleshooting Chart
Oven Problem
Possible Causes and
Suggested Solutions
The oven mode or temperature selected
or the numbers selected do not appear in
the display
The knob was turned too rapidly. Turn knob slower until correct wording or
temperature appears. Review manual instructions when setting clock,
timer, or Self-Clean.
Oven door is locked and will not release,
even after cooling
Turn the oven off at the circuit breaker and wait 5 minutes. Turn breaker
back on. The oven should reset itself and will be operable.
Oven is not heating
Check circuit breaker or fuse box to your house. Make sure there is proper
electrical power to the oven. Be sure oven temperature has been selected.
Oven is not cooking evenly
Adjust oven calibration if necessary (see “Change the Oven Temperature
Offset” on page 14). Refer to cooking charts for recommended rack position.

Table 12: Oven Troubleshooting Chart
Oven Problem
Possible Causes and
Suggested Solutions
Baking results are not as expected
Refer to cooking charts for recommended rack position. Check “Getting the
Most Out of Your Oven” on page 27 for tips and suggestions. Adjust oven
calibration if necessary (see “Change the Oven Temperature Offset” on
page 14).
Food takes longer to cook than expected
The oven is carefully calibrated to provide accurate results. However, the
temperature can be offset if food is consistently too brown or too light. See
“Change the Oven Temperature Offset” on page 14.
Food is overcooked
The oven is carefully calibrated to provide accurate results. However, the
temperature can be offset if food is consistently too brown or too light. See
“Change the Oven Temperature Offset” on page 14.
Convection Bake Results are not as
Expected
If the Automatic Convection Conversion Feature is turned off, the temperature must be manually reduced by 25°F. If the feature is active, the temperature is automatically adjusted. See “Turn Automatic Convection
Conversion ON or OFF” on page 16 for more information. Refer to cooking
charts and tips for rack positions, cooking times and pan selection. Adjust
oven calibration if necessary. See“Change the Oven Temperature Offset”
on page 14.
Oven temperature is too hot or too cold
The oven thermostat needs adjustment. See Oven Temperature Offset.
Oven light is not working properly
Replace or reinsert the light bulb if loose or defective. Touching the bulb
with fingers may cause the bulb to burn out.
Oven light will not turn off
Check for obstruction in oven door. Check to see if hinge is bent. When the
Sabbath feature is activated, the oven light will stay on or off (as selected
during set-up) during the entire Sabbath mode.
Cannot remove lens cover on light
There may be soil build-up around the lens cover. Wipe lens cover area
with a clean dry towel prior to attempting to remove the lens cover.
Oven will not Self-Clean properly
Allow the oven to cool before running Self-Clean. Always wipe out loose
soils or heavy spillovers before running Self-Clean. If oven is badly soiled,
set oven for a five-hour Self-Clean. See Preparing the Oven to Self-Clean.
Clock and timer are not working properly
Make sure there is electrical power to oven. See Clock and Timer sections.
Porcelain chips
When oven racks are removed and replaced, always tilt racks upward and
do not force them to avoid chipping the porcelain.
“F” and a number appears in display and
control beeps
This is a fault code. Press Off to clear the display and stop beeping. Reset
oven if necessary. If fault code remains and beep continues, record fault
code, cancel oven and call authorized service technician.
With a new range there is a strong odor
when oven is turned on
This is normal with a new range and will disappear after a few uses. Operating the self-clean cycle will also “burn-off” the smell more quickly.
Control does not react when the pad is
touched
Be sure that pad is clean. Touch the center of the touchpad. Use the flat
part of your finger.
Fan is running during modes that don’t
use convection
On some models, the convection fan will run while the oven is preheating
for the bake mode. This is normal.
Slide-in models also have a cooling fan that runs during every cooking
mode.
Warm air or steam escapes from oven
vent
It is normal to see or feel steam or warm air escaping from the oven vent.
Do not block the vent.

Warranty
What this Warranty Covers & Who it Applies to:
The limited warranty provided by BSH Home Appliances (“Siemens”) in this Statement of Limited Product Warranty applies only to the Siemens freestanding and
slide-in range, ("Product") sold to you, the first using purchaser, provided that the
Product was purchased: (1) for your normal, household (non-commercial) use,
and has in fact at all times only been used for normal household purposes; (2)
new at retail (not a display, "as is", or previously returned model), and not for
resale, or commercial use; and (3) within the United States or Canada, and has at
all times remained within the country of original purchase. The warranties stated
herein apply only to the first purchaser of the Product and are not transferable.
Please make sure to return your registration card; while not necessary to effectuate warranty coverage, it is the best way for Siemens to notify you in the unlikely
event of a safety notice or product recall.
How Long the Warranty Lasts:
Siemens warrants that the Product is free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of three hundred sixty-five days (365) days from the date of purchase. The foregoing timeline begins to run upon the date of purchase, and shall
not be stalled, tolled, extended, or suspended, for any reason whatsoever.
Repair/Replace as Your Exclusive
Remedy:
During this warranty period, Siemens or one of its authorized service providers will
repair your Product without charge to you (subject to certain limitations stated
herein) if your Product proves to have been manufactured with a defect in materials or workmanship. If reasonable attempts to repair the Product have been
made without success, then Siemens will replace your Product (upgraded models
may be available to you, in Siemens’ sole discretion, for an additional charge). All
removed parts and components shall become the property of Siemens at its sole
option. All replaced and/or repaired parts shall assume the identity of the original
part for purposes of this warranty and this warranty shall not be extended with
respect to such parts. Siemens’ sole liability and responsibility hereunder is to
repair manufacturer-defective Product only, using a Siemens -authorized service
provider during normal business hours. For safety and property damage concerns, Siemens highly recommends that you do not attempt to repair the Product
yourself, or use an un-authorized servicer; Siemens will have no responsibility or
liability for repairs or work performed by a non-authorized servicer. If you choose
to have someone other than an authorized service provider work on your Product,
THIS WARRANTY WILL AUTOMATICALLY BECOME NULL AND VOID. Authorized service providers are those persons or companies that have been specially
trained on Siemens products, and who possess, in Siemens’ opinion, a superior
reputation for customer service and technical ability (note that they are independent entities and are not agents, partners, affiliates or representatives of Siemens). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Siemens will not incur any liability, or have
responsibility, for the Product if it is located in a remote area (more than 100 miles
from an authorized service provider) or is reasonably inaccessible, hazardous,
threatening, or treacherous locale, surroundings, or environment; in any such
event, if you request, Siemens would still pay for labor and parts and ship the
parts to the nearest authorized service provider, but you would still be fully liable
and responsible for any travel time or other special charges by the service company, assuming they agree to make the service call.
Out of Warranty Product:
Siemens is under no obligation, at law or otherwise, to provide you with any concessions, including repairs, pro-rates, or Product replacement, once this warranty
has expired.
Warranty Exclusions:
The warranty coverage described herein excludes all defects or damage that are
not the direct fault of Siemens, including without limitation, one or more of the following: (1) use of the Product in anything other than its normal, customary and
intended manner (including without limitation, any form of commercial use, use or
storage of an indoor product outdoors, use of the Product in conjunction with air or
water-going vessels); (2) any party's willful misconduct, negligence, misuse,
abuse, accidents, neglect, improper operation, failure to maintain, improper or
negligent installation, tampering, failure to follow operating instructions, mishandling, unauthorized service (including self-performed "fixing" or exploration of the
appliance's internal workings); (4) adjustment, alteration or modification of any
kind; (5) a failure to comply with any applicable state, local, city, or county electrical, plumbing and/or building codes, regulations, or laws, including failure to install
the product in strict conformity with local fire and building codes and regulations;

(6) ordinary wear and tear, spills of food, liquid, grease accumulations, or other
substances that accumulate on, in, or around the Product; and (7) any external,
elemental and/or environmental forces and factors, including without limitation,
rain, wind, sand, floods, fires, mud slides, freezing temperatures, excessive moisture or extended exposure to humidity, lightning, power surges, structural failures
surrounding the appliance, and acts of God. In no event shall Siemens have any
liability or responsibility whatsoever for damage to surrounding property, including
cabinetry, floors, ceilings, and other structures or objects around the Product.
Also excluded from this warranty are scratches, nicks, minor dents, and cosmetic
damages on external surfaces and exposed parts; Products on which the serial
numbers have been altered, defaced, or removed; service visits to teach you how
to use the Product, or visits where there is nothing wrong with the Product; correction of installation problems (you are solely responsible for any structure and setting for the Product, including all electrical, plumbing or other connecting facilities,

THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, THIS WARRANTY SETS OUT YOUR
EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES WITH RESPECT TO PRODUCT, WHETHER THE
CLAIM ARISES IN CONTRACT OR TORT (INCLUDING STRICT LIABILITY, OR
NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE. THIS WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL
OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. ANY WARRANTY
IMPLIED BY LAW, WHETHER FOR MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL BE EFFECTIVE ONLY
FOR THE PERIOD THAT THIS EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY IS EFFECTIVE. IN NO EVENT WILL THE MANUFACTURER BE LIABLE FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, "BUSINESS LOSS", AND/OR
PUNITIVE DAMAGES, LOSSES, OR EXPENSES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION TIME AWAY FROM WORK, HOTELS AND/OR RESTAURANT MEALS,
REMODELLING EXPENSES IN EXCESS OF DIRECT DAMAGES WHICH ARE
DEFINITIVELY CAUSED EXCLUSIVELY BY SIEMENS, OR OTHERWISE.
SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, AND SOME STATES DO NOT
ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE
ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY GIVES
YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS,
WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE. No attempt to alter, modify or amend
this warranty shall be effective unless authorized in writing by an officer of BSH.
