IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
To reduce the rlsk of fire, electrlcal
shock,
Injury to persons, or damage
when using the
range, follow basic precauffons,
lncludlng
Read all instructions before using
the range.
0 Install or locate the range only in
accordance with the provided
Installation Instructtons. It is recommended that the range be installed by a qualified installer. The
range must be properly connected to electrical supply and
grounded.
0 Do not use the range for warming or heating the room. Persons
could be burned or injured, or
a fire could start.
l Do not leave children
alone or
unattended in area where the
range is in use. They should never
be allowed to sit or stand on any
par-f of the range. They could be
burned or injured.
l Do not wear loose or hanging
garments when using the range.
They could ignite if they touch a
hot surface unit or heating element and you could be burned.
0 Do not repair or replace any
part of the range unless specifically recommended in this manual. All other servicing should
be referred to a qualified
technician.
l Do not store flammable
materials in or near the range. They
could explode or burn.
0 Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flaming pan on cooktop by covering with a well-fitted
lid, cookie sheet or flat tray. Flaming grease outside of pan can
be extlnguished with baking
soda or, if available, a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
l Use only dry potholders.
Moist
or damp potholders on hot surl

l
l
l
l
faces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let potholder touch
hot heating elements. Do not use
a towel or bulky cloth for a potholder. They could catch on fire.
Select a pan with a flat bottom
that is about the same size as
the surface unit. If pan is smaller
than the surface unit, some of
the heating element will be
exposed and may result in the
igniting of clothing or potholders.
Correct pan size also improves
cooking efficiency.
Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings. A
boil-over could result and cause
smoking and greasy spill+vers
that may ignite.
Make sure the reflector bowls
are in place during cooking.
Cooking without reflector bowls
may subject the wiring and
components underneath them
to damage.
Do not line reflector bowls with
aluminum foil or other liners.
Improper installation of these
liners may result in a risk of
electric shock or tire.
Check to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe for use on the
cooktop. Only certain types of
glass, glass ceramic, ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktops
without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature.
Turn pan handles inward, but
not over other surface units. This
will help reduce the chance
of burns, igniting of flammable
materials, and spills due to
bumping of the pan.
Do not soak removable heating
elements in water. The element

will be damaged and shock or
fire could result.
Use care when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing
food.
Do not heat unopened containers. They could explode. The
hot contents could cause burns
and container particles could
cause injury
Keep range vents unobstructed.
Always position oven racks in
desired location while oven is
cool. If rack must be moved
while oven is hot, do not let
potholder contact hot heating
element in oven.
Do not clean door seal. It is
essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub,
damage, or move the seal.
Clean only parts recommended
in this Use and Care Guide.
Do not use oven cleaners. No
commercial oven cleaner or
oven liner protective coating of
any kind should be used in or
around any part of the oven.
Do not store things children
might want above the range.
Children could be burned or
injured while climbing on it.
l
Do not touch surface units, areas
near units, heating elements or
interior surfaces of oven. Surface
units and heating elements may
be hot even though they are
dark in color. Areas near surface
units and interior surfaces of an
oven become hot enough to
cause burns. During and after
use, do not touch, or let clothing
or other flammable materials
contact surface units, areas near
units, heating elements or interior
surfaces of oven until they have
had sufficient time to cool. Other
surfaces of the range may
become hot enough to cause
burns; such as, the oven vent
opening, the surface near the
ventopening,thecooktop,the
oven door and window.
. FOR YOUR SAFETY l
DO NOT STORE OR USE GASOLINE
OR OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS
AND LIQUIDS IN THE VICINITY OF
THIS OR ANY OTHER APPLIANCE.

(Part No. 242905)
The large diameter of most water-bath or pressure canners combined with high
heat settings for long periods of time can shorten the life of regular surface units
and cause damage to the cooktop.
If you plan to use the cook-top for canning, we recommend the installation of a
Canning Kit. Order the kit from your Whirlpool dealer or authorized WhirlpooP
service company.

Adjusting
the Oven Temperature
Control
Does your oven seem hotter or colder than your old oven? The temperature of
your old oven may have shifted gradually without your noticing the change.
Your new oven is properly adjusted to provide accurate temperatures. But
when compared to your old oven, the new design may give you different
results.
If after using the oven for a period of time, you are not satisfied with the
temperature settings, they can be adjusted by following these steps:
SCREWS
1. Pull the Oven Temperature Control
Knob straight off.

Burn and Electrical
Shock Hazard
Make sure all surface units are OFF before
replacing
surface units and reflector bowls.
Failure to do so can result in burns or electrical shock.
1. Turn off all surface units.
2. Line up openings in the reflector
bowl with the surface unit receptacle and the element hold down

receptacle.
4. When terminal is pushed into the
receptacle as far as it will go, push
down the edge of the surface unit
opposite the receptacle. The element hold down clip will keep the
surface unit from moving around.
NOTE: Reflector bowls reflect heat back to the utensils on the surface
units. They also help catch spills. When they are kept clean, they
reflect heat better and look new longer.
If a reflector bowl gets discolored,
some of the utensils may not be
flat enough, or some may be too large for the surface unit. In either
case, some of the heat that’s meant to go into or around a utensil
goes down and heats the reflector bowl. This extra heat can discolor
it. See Cooking Guide for further information.
Lift-Up Cooktop
1. Lift front of cooktop at both front
corners until the support rods lock
into place.
Personal Injury Hazard
Be sure both support rods are
fully extended

The Continuous-Cleaning
Oven
Standard oven walls are coated with smooth porcelain. Your ContinuousCleaning oven walls are coated with a special, rougher porcelain. A fat
spatter beads up on the smooth surface, but spreads out on the rougher
surface. The bead of fat on the smooth surface chars and turns black. The
spread-out fat on the rough surface gradually
burns away at medium to
high baking temperatures
so the oven can return to a presentably clean
condition.
Using Foil
Using foil on the oven bottom is recommended to catch sugar and starchy
spills from pies and casseroles, It must be used properly. Cut foil from a roll of
heavy-duty IS-inch (45 cm] aluminum foil, or buy a foil kit (Part No. 241430)
from your Whirlpool Appliance dealer.
