One module has two 6-inch surface units. another has a 4-inch and an g-inch surface unit, and the grill is another module. All the modules are interchangeable and can be installed in any position in your cooktop. Additional modules may be purchased from your dealer. Optional items include: a griddle module. a rotisserie accessory for the grill; an extra grill: a cutting board; and additional surface unit combinations.

They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance. Do not let children play with the cooktop. It is not a toy! 5. Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless it is specifically recommended in literature you receive with it. All servicing should be referred to a qualified technician. 6. Don’t store flammable materials near surface units. 7. Do not use water on grease fires. Smother the fire or flame. or use a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher. 8. Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings. A boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite. 9. Do not soak removable heating elements in water. 10. Do not heat unopened food containers. such as baby food jars and cans. Pressure build-up may cause the container to burst and result in injury. 11. CAUTION: Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets above a cooktop or near the surface units. Children could be seriously injured while climbing on a cooktop to reach these items. Before using your cooktop IMPORTANT We build appliances to last. but we can’t control how they are used. Before using it. you are personally responsible for making sure that it.. l is properly installed and leveled in a countertop and cabinet that will hold the weight. and in a well-ventilated room. l is wired with the right electric supply and grounding. l is used only for jobs expected of home cooktops l is out of the weather. l is properly maintained. l is not used by children or others who may not understand how it should be used How to use surface To turn on surface unit PUSH IN and turn to desired setting. Handle I unit controls The control knobs on your modular cooktop have a featurerequired on all ranges and cooktops-to help keep children from accldentally turning on the surface units. You must push in (down) on them first, then turn to the desired setting. The design to the left of each knob indicates which unit is controlled by that knob. (For example. ::s#. indicates the right front unit on the RCXXOOXKH lthree module unit] or. :? on the RC8300XKH (two module unit 1 1 The control may be set anywhere between “HI” and “LO” to select the exact amount of heat required. As you use your cooktop. you will find the correct settings for the cooking you do. Recommended settings you can use as a guide are: HI - To start most foods cooking. To bring water to a boil. MED HI - To hold a rapid boil: to fry pancakes: to fry chicken. MED -- To make gravy. puddings and icings: to cook large quantities of vegetables. MED LO - To keep food cooking after starting at a higher setting LO - To keep food warm until ready to serve. Adjust heat higher or lower within the LO area as needed for different foods A 4-inch surface unit is a special feature on your cooktop. Deslgned only for small pans, it may be used to: l warm coffee pot. small tea kettle, oven proof casseroles. l melt chocolate. cream cheese. butter. marshmallows at low temperatures. The Signal Light to the left of each Surface Unit Control Knob will glow whenever the surface unit is on. Be sure all lights are off when you have finished cooking.

The backstop or bar at each end of the gill is designed for ease in flipping hamburgers or other food products. 4. The heating element for the grill, like the surface units, cleans itself. It must not be immersed in water. 5. Take grill apart to clean and to remove and store. 6. Most utensils which are safe for use on an outdoor grill may be used with your Grill Module. How to remove and replace modules Make sure all Surface Unit Control Knobs are in the “OFF” and the modules are cool before removing or replacing. To remove or replace Surface Unit Modules 1. To remove: l Lift module using the handle at the front. (See Step 1.) Raise front just high enough to grasp at front edge. l Ease module toward you using both hands to unplug it. (See Step 2.) l Lift module out of cooktop. It may be used in any cooktop position (left. right or center on the three module unrt) Step 1 Step 2 /’ 2. To replace: l Grasp module with both hands (See Step 2. ) * Ease it into place, lining the module terminal with the receptacle on the cooktop (See Step 3.) l Lower the module. using the handle on the front. (See Step 1.) To remove or replace a Grill Module Make sure the Module Control and the module Step 3 position is cool before removing Knob is in the “OFF” or replacing. position 1. To remove: l Ljft the grill off the grill frame. (See Step 1.) 0 Grasp the heating element with both hands, lifting slightly. Pull toward you to unplug the heating element.(See Step 2.) l Lrft ceramic rcIrk basket from grease well. using basket handle. (See Step 3.1 Remove grease well by lifting the module using the handle at the back. Slide grease well back about one inch and up until the tab on the front edge is clear of the cooktop frame. (See Step 4.) Lift grease well out of the cooktop. Remove as directed to avoid spills of fat drippings. Clean all parts after each use. (See page 10. “How to clean and care for your cooktop.“) , 2. To replace: l Step 1 l l l Rest grill frame on rile cooktop frame Raise slightly at rear. Hold h,3ndle and slide for\Lard until it stops. (See Step 5.)

Fit grill into groove on top of the frame. Be sure that center supporting bar on the grill faces down. Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 How to clean Receptacle I I \ Terminal To remove surface unit, lift and pull straight out. Hold surface unit level when replacing. I i Lift 10 Push / and care for your cooktop 1. To remove the control knobs for cleaning: l Be sure control knob is in the “OFF” position. l Grasp the knob and pull straight up. l Wash in warm. sudsy water. l Push knob back into place (indicator line pointing to “OFF”). 2. To remove surface unit and reflector bowls: 0 Be sure the control knob is in the “OFF” position and the unit is cool. l Lift the edge of the unit (about 1 inch) opposite the receptacle. Pull the entire unit straight out. (Units clean themselves-do not immerse in water.) l Lift out reflector bowl. NOTE: The reflector bowls under each surface unit are designed to catch spillovers and to reflect heat into utensils for faster cooking. Frequent washing will keep them cleaner. more efficient and looking more like new. If a reflector bowl turns blue or gold. the pan you are using may not be flat enough to make good contact with the surface unit. or it may be too large for the unit size. Heat then goes down into the reflector bowl instead of being absorbed Into the pan. This results in discoloration of the bowl from high heat. To reolace surface unit and reflector bowl: i’ut the reflector bowl back into place. Line up the opening in the side of the bowl with the receptacle. Line up the surface unit terminal with receptacle. holding the unit level (as illustrated) Plug the unit Into place while lifting slightly at the edge near the terminal. Push down at the edge opposite the terminal. Make sure the surface unit is pushed into the receptacle as far as possible. The unit should be level when replaced correctly.
