THE OPTIONAL
SMOOTHTOP
MODULE
Cooking on the optional
black smoothtop
is
o/most the same as cooking on surface elements.
There are three differences
you should know about:
1. The cookware
you use.
2. What to expect.
3. The care and cleaning.
Cookware...
For best results, proper
cookware
must be used.
Bottoms must be perfectly
flat, with NO
ridges, rims, patterns, dents, roughness or
scratches.
-Pans with uneven bottoms cause poor
cooking
results and may damage
the
smoothtop.
-Nicks and scratches on a pan can damage the smoothtop.
16
l
l
l
Bottoms must be clean. Heating a soiled pan
can leave a stain on the smoothtop.
Sliding aluminum
pans or foil, and copper
pans, on the smoothtop can leave a mark. The
marks made by aluminum
can be removed If
they are not heated.
See page 22 for cleaning and care suggestions.
Cooklng...
The glass will take longer to heat up than a
regular surface unit. It will also take longer
to cool down. Turn off the unit a few minutes
before you are finished cookrng.
l
l
The Care and Cleaning...
Always clean the smoothtop
after cooking.
Use a special smoothtop
cleaner/conditioner
available
from your appliance
dealer, grocery, hardware
or variety stores.
Avoldlng
stalns
l Use a special
smoothtop
cleanericonditioner every time you use the Smoothtop
Module. Follow the package
directions
carefully.
l Wipe
the smoothtop with a clean, damp
paper towel before you use the smoothtop. (Do not use a sponge or cloth. A little
leftover soap or soil can stain the smoothtop when heated.)
l
Use only clean cookware.
l Avoid
spillovers. Use pans with tall sides.
l Don’t let covers
drip on the smoothtop.
OPTIONAL
Wipe up any spill when the unit is cool
enough not to steam when a wet cloth
touches it. The longer you cook wlth a splllover on the unit, the harder It will be to
remove that spill.
Clean off metal marks (from copper or
aluminum)
right away. If heated, they may
never come off
Avoiding
Damage
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 on the surface. Wipe a spill when the surface is cool.
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. Be careful with heavy
skillets. Don’t store jars or cans above the
smoothtop.
See the special “Smoothtop
Cleanlng
Chart”
on page 22.
l
CUTTING BOARD
Before using the Cutting Board...
Wipe with damp sudsy cloth to remove
dust.
2. Rinse and wipe dry.
3. Season it by coating with colorless minera
oil.
4. Let oil stand a few hours; wipe off excess.
To keep the Cutting Board looking new, sand
the surface with fine sandpaper
to remove
cutting marks and stains. Clean and re-season.
To sterilize the board, use a mixture of one
teaspoon
chlorine bleach to one quart water.
Wipe cutting board. Clean and re-season.

5.
When the terminal

as far as it will go, the surface unit
will fit into the reflector bowl.
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 awcy 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 flberglass
seal. DO
NOT move It or bend It.
2.
Remove any pots or pans you may have
stored in the oven. They can’t stand the

ny loose soil or grease. This will

Door
19
SPECIAL TIPS
1.
Keep the kitchen well
ventilated
during the
cleaning
cycle to help
get rid of normal heat
odors 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 a thin coat of salad oil.
2.
Clean the oven before
it gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning
a very soiled
oven takes longer and
results in more smoke
than usual.
5.
3.
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 Trme 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.
SPECIAL CAlllIONS
DO NOT touch the range
during the cleaning
cycle
...it can burn you.
DO NOT use foil or other
liners in the oven. During
the cleaning
cycle, they
can burn or melt.
DO NOT use commercial
oven cleaners in your oven.
Damage to the porcelain
finish may occur.
DO NOT block the vent
during the cleaning
cycle.
Air must move freely for
best results.
SETTING THE CONTROLS
1.
20
Make sure the clock
and start and stop
time dials all have the
right time of day.
2.
Push in the Stop Time
Knob and turn the
hand clockwise
about two or three
hours. (Two hours for
light soil; three or
more for heavier soil.]
3.
Set the Oven Selector
to CLEAN. The Clean
Light will come on
and the door will lock
automatically.
6.
4.
Set the Oven Temperature Control to
CLEAN.
5.
The Lock Light comes
on when the oven
gets above normal
baking temperatures.
The door can’t be
unlocked when the
Lock Light is on.
7.
Turn the Oven Temperature Control to OFF.
8.
Affer the oven Is cool,
wipe off any residue
or ash with a damp
cloth.Ifneeded,
touch up spots with
cleanser or soapy
steel-wool pad.
When the Lock Light
goes off, turn the Oven
Selector to 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 (46&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.

If you do get a stain:
1. A mildly abrasive
cleanser like Bar Keepers Friend ’ with a plastic scouring pad
will help remove stains that aren’t burned
on. Use cleaner/conditioner
afterwards.
2. A soapy steel wool pad will help with stubborn spots. Make sure the pad is very
soapy. Use cleaner/conditioner
afterwards.
3. A moist sponge and automatic
dishwasher
detergent
can help. (Wear rubber gloves.)
Rinse and dry carefully. Use cleaner/conditioner afterwards.
4. Spread a paste of powdered
cleanser
and water over the stain. Keep the paste
damp with a damp paper towel for 30
to 45 minutes. This can soften the soil so a
cleanser or steel wool pad can remove it.
