Your cooktop has two or three sections which are called modules.
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.

IMPORTANT
SAFEGUARDS
Safety is everyone’s responsibility. Whirlpool has researched and designed your cooktop to help you prepare meals
easily and safely. You, as the owner of the cooktop, also have a
responsibility to use it and care for it wisely.
For your own and your family’s safety. read and follow
these Do’s and Don’&.
4
1. Remove the Consumer Buy Guide label before using
your cooktop.
2. Have your appliance properly installed. electrically
grounded and connected to the supply of electricity by a
qualified person.
3. Think about the clothes you are wearing when using a
cooking appliance. Never wear loose fitting or hanging
garments while using the cooktop. The fabric could accidentally touch a hot heating element and burn or catch
on fire.

4. Do not leave children alone or unattended in the area
where the cooktop is in use. 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.

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.

Hints and tips:
1. Cooking on the grill can produce spattering It is important to clean
all parts after each use. (See page 9, “To remove and replace the
Grill Module. ” )
2. The ceramic rocks will darken with use.
3. 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.

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.
