THE OPTIONAL SMOOTHTOP MODULE
Cooking on the black smoothtop
module
is almost the same as cooking on surface elements. There are three differences
you should
keep in mind
1.
FOR BEST RESULTS, PROPER COOKWARE MUST
BE USED...
Bottoms must be perfectly
flat, with NO
ridges, rims, patterns, dents, roughness or
scratches.
Wipe up spills when the top cools. If a wet cloth
steams, the top is too hot. The longer you cook
with a spillover on the smoothtop, the harder it
will be to remove the spill.
Avoiding
damage...
l Rough
cookware,
jewelry, salt, sand, knives,
etc., can scratch the surface. Use only smooth
cookware;
wipe the surface before using. DO
NOT use the smoothtop
as a cutting board.
l Sugary
spills can cause pitting. Wipe a spill
when the surface cools.
l
Pans that aren’t flat can cause hot spots that
can crack the surface.
l
Spilling ice-cold
water on a hot surface may
crack it.
l
Dropping
heavy or hard objects on the cooktop can crack it. Don’t store jars or cans above
the smoothtop.
l
Pans with uneven bottoms cause poor cooking results and can damage
the cooktop.
l
Pans with nicks, scratches or a rough surface
can damage
the cooktop.
l Aluminum
and copper can leave marks if slid
across the cooktop.
l
2.
COOKING IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT...
The glass surface takes longer to heat up
than a regular surface unit. It also takes longer to
cool down. Turn off the unit a few minutes before
you are finished cooking
Removing
stains...

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 used may not be flat enough.
Or some may be too large for the surface
unit. In either case, some of the heat that is
meant to go into or around a utensil goes
down and heats the reflector bowl. This extra heat can discolor it.
USING THE SELF-CLEANING
CYCLE
The self-cleaning
cycle uses very hlgh heat to burn away soil. Before
you start, make sure you understand
exactly how to use the cycle
safely.
BEFORE YOU START
1.
Clean areas that may not be cleaned
during the cycle. Use hot water and detergent or a soapy steel-wool pad on...
l the frame
around the oven
l the inside
of the door, especially
the part
outside the oven seal.
DO NOT try to clean the fiberglass
seal. DO
NOT move It or bend It.
Remove any pots or pans you may have
stored in the oven They can’t stand the
soil or grease. This will
during the cleaning
Clean Door
Clean
18
Frame
SPECIAL TIPS
1.
Ket?p the kitchen well
ventilated
during the
cleaning
cycle to help
get rid of normal heat
od 31s and smoke
4.
Oven racks lose their shine, discolor
and become harder to slide on their
guides when they are left in the oven
during the cleaning
cycle To make
them slide easier, polish the edges of
the racks and rack guides with a soapy
steel-wool pad, rinse well. and wipe
on 7 thin coat of salad 011
2.
If the cleaning
cycle
doesn’t get the oven as
clean as you
expected,
the cycle
may not have been set
long enough. Set the
cleaning
time longer
for heavier soil.
To stop the cleaning
cycle after it has
started,
l Turn the Stop Ime
Knob clockwise
until the hand points to the right time
of day
l Turn the Oven
Selector and Oven
Temperature
Control to OFF
l
When the oven cools, you can
open the door Wait until the oven IS cool.
Clean the oven before
It gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning a very soiled
oven takes longer and
results in more smoke
than usual
5.
3.

liners in the oven. During
the cleaning
cycle, they
can burn or melt.
DO NOT touch the range
during the cleaning
cycle
It caq burn you.
DO NOT use commercial
oven cleaners in your oven
Damage to the porcelain
finish may occur.
DO NOT block the vent

best results
1.
Make sure the clock
and start and stop
time dials all have the
right time of day.
2.

hand clockwise
about two or three
hours. (Two hours for
light soil; three or

cleanser or soapy
steel-wool Dad.
~
When the Lock Light
goes off, turn the Oven
Selectorto
OFF. This
unlocks the door.
DO NOT TOUCH THE RANGE DURING THE CLEANING CYCLE. IT CAN BURN YOU.
HOW IT WORKS
During the self-cleaning
cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it does
for baking
or broiling...approximately
870’ F (466. C). This heat breaks
up grease
and soil, and burns it off.
The graph shows approximate
temperatures
and times during a selfcleaning
cycle set for two hours.
