SAFETY
Children MUST BE TAUGHT safe range practices to
prevent possible injury. Listed below are some basic
practices we recommend you read and follow for safe
use of this gas appliance when children are present.
Do not leave children alone or unsupervised
near the
range when range is in use or is still hot.
Children
should be taught
that the range is not a toy.
They should not be allowed
to play with range controls
or other parts of the range.
Children MUST be taught that the range and utensils
on the range can be hot.
The range should not be used as a step stool to cabinets above.
Children should not be allowed to sit or stand on any
part of the range.
Let hot utensils cool in a safe place, out of reach of
small children.
GAS ODORS
l
A faint gas odor may indicate a pilot light is out. To relight pilots, follow instructions
on page 2. If a gas odor
is detected when the pilot is burning, cut off the gas
supply to the range. Call your installeror local gascompany to have the possible leak checked. NEVER USE A
MATCHOROTHERFLAMETOLOCATEAGASLEAK.
SURFACE
COOKING
SAFETY
To eliminate the hazard of reaching over hot surface
burners, cabinet storage space should not be provided
over a range. TEMPERATURES
IN STORAGE AREAS
ABOVE THE RANGE MAY BE UNSAFE FOR STORAGE OF SOME TYPES OF MATERIALS
SUCH AS
VOLATILE LIQUIDS OR AEROSOL SPRAYS.
l
A cooking utensil should be in place whenever a surface burner is turned on. The utensil will absorb heat
and prevent possible damage to the grate and surface
burner. The utensil will also serve as a shield from the

OVEN COOKING
AND HINTS
SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS
Never reach directly into a hot oven to add or remove
cooking utensils. Rather, use DRY sturdy’ pot holders
and pull oven rack out before adding or removing utensils. Do not use DAMP pot holders because they will
cause steam burns. Dish towels or other substitutes are
not recommended as they may get caught on range parts
or ignite.
Do not use the oven as a storage area.
DO NOT HEAT AN UNOPENED
GLASS OR METAL
CONTAINER
IN THE OVEN. Pressure buildup in the
container may cause it to burst and result in serious personal harm or damage to the range.
OVEN AIR FLOW AND OVEN BURNER
FLAME APPEARANCE
Unrestricted
air flow through
the oven is necessary
for safe and proper operation of the oven burner. Do
not obstruct air intake located below broiler drawer.
The flame size and appearance of a properly adjusted
oven burner should look like this illustration.
GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
HINTS FOR COOKING UTENSILS
AND
Choose pans that are easily grasped with handles that
stay cool. Avoid using pans that are unstable, warped,
or easily tipped. If pan handles twist and cannot be
tightened, discard them. Pans that are too heavy to move
easily when filled with food may also be a hazard.
Be sure utensil is large enough to properly contain food
and avoid boilovers. Pan size is especially important in
deep fat frying. Be certain pan is large enough to accommodate volume of food that is to be added and for the
bubble action of fat. NEVER LEAVE A DEEP FAT FRYING OPERATION UNATTENDED.
Always turn pan handles to the side or back of the range,
not out into the room where they are easily hit or reached
by small children.
Never leave a pan unattended when using a high flame
setting. Only use a high setting to bring liquids to a boil
or begin cooking, then REDUCE to a lower flame setting
to continue the cooking operation.
Never use a high
flame setting for extended cooking. REMEMBER: Food
will not cook any faster when more than the amount of
heat needed to maintain a gentle boil is used.
PLASTICS
Many plastics are vulnerable to heat. Keep plastics away
from parts of the range that may become warm or hot.
Follow manufacturer’s
directions for oven cooking bags
or browning bags.
ALUMINUM
FOIL
Use aluminum foil ONLY as instructed on page 12 in this
booklet. Improper use may cause damage to the range
and may affect cooking results.
AEROSOL
SPRAYS
Many aerosol-type
spray cans are EXPLOSIVE when
exposed to heat and may be highly flammable. Avoid
their use or storage near a hot range. Do not use aerosol
products other than spray-type oven cleaners in or near
a gas range. If used frequently
over a period of time,
ingredients
in some aerosols may cause metal parts of
the range to rust and corrode.

INFORMATION
HOW TO OPERATE
WITH PILOTS
When the surface burner valve (A) is turned on, gas enters
the mixer tube or venturi (B) and comes in contact with
air. This air/gas mixture flows to the burner head (C) and
is lighted by either the flame from the pilot or a spark from
the solid state iqnitor (D).
SURFACE
BURNERS
Your range or built-in surface unit is equipped with one
of two types of surface burner valves. They can be identified by the markings on the control. One type of burner
has HIGH (START) and OFF printed on the control. This
is called an EFFLEX@ burner. The other type of burner
has HIGH (START), MEDIUM and WARM printed on
the control with “click” sounds to identify these 3 settings. This is called a Tri-Temp@ burner.
To operate elther type of burner: Push in and turn control to the left to HIGH (START). When the burner lights,
turn control back to the desired flame size.
If the flame should go out during a cooking operation,
turn the burner off.lF GAS HAS ACCUMULATED
AND
A STRONG GAS ODOR IS DETECTED, WAIT 5 MINUTES FOR THE GAS ODOR TO DISAPPEAR BEFORE
RELIGHTING
BURNER. To relight burner, push in and
turn knob to HIGH.
SELECTING
CORRECT
FLAME SIZE
Use the HIGH flame setting to quickly bring foods to a
boil or to begin a cooking operation. Then reduce to a
lower setting to continue cooking. Never leave food unattended over a high flame setting.
A properly adjusted burner with clean ports will light
within a few seconds The cone-shaped
flame will be
clear blue in color with a clearly defined inner cone.
There should be no trace of yellow in the flame. A yellow
flame indicates an improper mixture of air and gas. This
wastes fuel so have a serviceman adjust the air/gas mixture if a yellow flame ever occurs.
HIGH
HOW TO OPERATE SURFACE
WITH SOLID STATE IGNITION
(START)
BURNERS
Solid State Ignition eliminates the pilots. Rangesor builtin surface units equipped with solid state ignition operate
the same as conventional
ranges.
To operate this type burner:
Push in and turn control to the left past HIGH to the
(START) position. This is the light position. The clicking sound indicates that the ignitor is producing
sparks to light the surface burner. Sometimes you
may notice some static interference with your radio,
television or stereo system when the ignitor is producing sparks.
When the burner lights, turn the control back to the
desired setting. If selecting a high flame setting, adjust the knob until there is no clicking sound. The
clicking sound will stop and the ignitor will turn off.
Do not leave the control in the (START) position once
the burner lights.
If the flame should go out during a cooking operation,
turn the burner off. IF GAS HAS ACCUMULATED
AND A STRONG GAS ODOR IS DETECTED, WAIT
5 MINUTES FOR THE GAS ODOR TO DISAPPEAR
BEFORE RELIGHTING
BURNER.
See page 4 for instructions
on manually lighting the surface burners in the event of a power failure.
MEDIUM is used to continue a cooking operation. Food
will not cook any faster when a higher flame setting is
used than that needed to maintain a gentle boil. Remember, water boils at the same temperature whether boiling
gently or vigorously.
Use WARM to keep food at serving temperatures without
further cooking. You may find that some cooking may
take place if the cooking utensil is covered.

5
FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN
SELECTING
CORRECT FLAME SIZE
SIZE OF COOKING UTENSIL: FLAME SIZE SHOULD
BE ADJUSTED SO IT DOES NOT EXTEND BEYOND
THE EDGE OF THE COOKING UTENSIL FOR YOUR
PERSONAL
SAFETY AND TO PREVENT POSSIBLE
DAMAGE TO CABINETS ABOVE RANGE.
Adjusting the size of the flame to fit the size of the cooking utensil also helps to save fuel.
UTENSIL
MATERIALS:
Stainless
steel, porcelain,
enamelware,
glass, glass ceramic and Teflon@-coated
utensils designed for surface cooking usually heat slowly
and conduct heat poorly when a large flame size is used.
Adjust the flame size to extend only halfway between
center and edge of the utensil bottom for better cooking results.
Aluminum utensils conduct heat more evenly; therefore,
a slightly larger flame size can be used. The flame can
be adjusted so it comes to the edge of the utensil, The
flame should NEVER be adjusted so that it extends
beyond the bottom of the utensil.
COVERED UTENSILS: If the utensil is covered less fuel
will be needed; therefore, a lower flame size can be used.
REMEMBER: Food will not cook any faster when more
than the amount of heat needed to maintain a gentle
boil is used. See page 2 for additional information
on
the safe use of utensils.
CARE INFORMATION
Be sure the range or built-in surface unit is cool before
removing any parts or cleaning the unit. Any parts removed in the cleaning should be replaced correctly.
COOKTOP
AND GRATES
To remove cooktop: First remove
pans. Then grasp front two burner

and will crack or chip with misuse. All spillovers, especially acid spillovers, should be wiped up immediately with
a dry cloth. 3) Do not use abrasive or caustic cleaning
agents on exterior finish of range.
To clean grates: Grates are made of porcelain-coated
steel and can be cleaned with warm soapy water or in
the dishwasher. Use a soap-filled scouring pad for stubborn soil.
To clean control knobs: 1) Remove knobs by gently pullling off. 2) Clean with warm soapy water. 2) Do not use
abrasive cleaning agents for they will scratch the finish
and remove markings. 4) Replace knobs.

DISCOLORATION
WILL ALSO OCCUR
THE SURFACE BURNER WHEN:
Shipping screws are used to secure each surface burner
to the range during transportation.
Once range is installed, the screws should be removed.
1. The burner is turned on without a pan In place to
absorb heat. This is especially critical when the flame
is adjusted to the MEDIUM flame setting.
2. Incorrect cleaning agents are used. Some cleaning
agents can scratch or dull the aluminum finish of the
burner head.
3. Cleaned in the dishwasher.
Dishwasher
detergents
are harsh and caustic and will permanently
dull the
aluminum finish.
4. Boilovers occur when the flame is adjusted to a HIGH
flame setting.
5. Cleaning is infrequent
or soil is allowed to burn on
before cleaning.
To clean surface burners: Clean burners in warm soapy
water after each use or as they become soiled. Remove
stubborn soil by scouring with a nonabrasive
plastic
scouring pad such as Tuffy@ and a paste of baking soda
and water.
Clean ports with a straight pin. Do not use a wooden
toothpick or other objects that might enlargen or break
off and clog a port. Both burner ignition and cooking
results will be affected if a port is enlargened or clogged.
The following
cleaning
agents ARE NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CLEANING
SURFACE BURNERS for
they will permanently
damage the finish:
Caustic
cleaners such as oven cleaners, steel wool, abrasive
cleaning or scouring agents, dishwasher
detergent or
metal polishes.
After cleaning, burners can be dried in the oven set at
140°F. (SO’C.). CAUTION:
BURNERS AND BURNER
TUBES MUST BE DRY BEFORE USE.
To remove burner: 1) Remove or support cooktop with
metal rod. 2) Grasp burner head and tilt to release tab
from slot near pilot. 3) Lift burner up and toward rear of
range until burner is released.
To replace burner: 1) Insert the air shutter end of the
burner over the hood and lower burner into place. 2) Insert tab on burner into slot in burner support located in
burner box. If burner is not replaced correctly, cooking
results will be affected, burner will not operate properly
and a safety hazard could occur. 3) Replace cooktop.
Screws are for shipping only.
Remove before using burner.
A
A natural dulling of the surface burner’s aluminum finish
should be expected. This is a permanent dulling and will
occur over a period of time and with continued usage.
Cleaning
practices may improve the appearance
but
will not completely restore the finish to its original luster.
MAINTENANCE
TO
AND SERVICE
1. Always keep appliance area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.
2. Do not obstruct or restrict the flow of combustion and
ventilation
air.
4. Cleaning procedures for various appliance parts are
given along with the description and use instructions
for those parts in this book (see particularly
pages 6,
7 above, 8, 15, 16, the general cleaning chart on page
17, and page 18.) The frequency of cleaning will vary
depending on use.
5. Lubrication
of moving parts should not normally be
requiredwiththeoneexceptionoftheovendoorhinges
which may occasionally
require a tiny drop of household oil at the pivot point. Lubricate these pointssparingly only when and if the normal sounds of opening
or closing of door changes significantly.
6. Replacement
parts may be obtained through your
local dealer (see inside back cover.)
3. The visual check and adjustment of pilot flames made
per the printed installation
instruction
sheets should
be repeated whenever service has been interrupted or
upon relighting
pilots. Normally the pilot flame and
surface and oven burner flames should not require
adjustment
beyond those made at installation.
It is
good preventive maintenance,
however, to occasionally check pilot’s flame size and burner flame patterns.
Should you detect significant variation, service may be
needed. (See inside back cover for specific checks you
can make.)

BASIC
INFORMATION
ON OVEN COOKING
AND BROILING
HOW THE OVEN WORKS
PREHEATING
Wh’en the Oven Temperature Control is turned to a desired setting, there will be a 45 to 60 second delay before the oven burner lights. This delay is for safety considerations. When the oven reaches the temperature set
on the Oven Temperature
Control, the oven burner will
automatically
cycle on and off to maintain the preset
temperature.
If the Oven Temperature Control is turned
to BROIL, the oven burner will remain on for most normal
broiling operations. The burner will cycle on and off for
extended broiling operations.
Preheating is necessary only for baking operations;
it
is not necessary to preheat the oven for broiling or roasting. To preheat, turn the Oven Temperature Control to
the desired temperature setting. Do not select a higher
setting, for the oven will not preheat any faster. Allow
about 10 minutes for the oven to heat before placing
food in the oven.
LOW TEMP OVEN SETTING
The Low Temp Setting (140 to 200°F.) can be used to
keep foods at serving temperatures without further cooking, for thawing frozen foods, refreshing baked goods
or for warming plates or serving dishes. Be sure utensils
are ovenproof. Do not warm silver. silverplate or plastics
in the oven. Food is more palatable and nutritious if kept
warm no ionger than 1% to 2 hours.
HOW OVEN EQUIPPED WITH SOLID
STATE IGNITION WORKS
Ovens equipped with Solid state Ignition operate the
same as a conventional
gas oven. When the Oven Temperature Control is turned to a desired setting, you can
hear clicking sounds for the first 5 to 10 seconds until
the ignitor lights the oven pilot. The pilot, in turn, lights
the oven burner. When the Oven Temperature Control is
turned off, both the oven pilot and burner go out. On
some models, you can hear a click sound from the igniter
when the Oven Temperature Control !s turned off. Occasional!:., you may notice borne statrc interference
with
your radio, televislorr or stereo system when the ignitor
is producing spar hs.
See page 4 for instrutions on manually lighting the oven
in the event of a prolonged power failure.
~-
If the oven was not in use and is cool, preheat to a Low
Temp setting for about 5 to 8 minutes.
If the oven has been set at a higher temperature or is sti;i
warm: Either reduce to a L.ow Temp setting 15 rninu7(‘+
before the end of cooking and let the oven cool with the
door closed, or reduce oven temperature after cooking
and leave the door opened for five minutes. Use caution if
small children are around the hot oven door when it is
open.
OVEN CHARACTERISTICS
Every oven has its own personal characteristics.
You
may find that the cooking times and temperatures you
were accli?romed to with your old range may alter slightly
with ync~r’ I!CW ranr!e!. Please expect some differences

ROASTNG
Roasting is the cooking of tender cuts of meat with dry
heat. No water is added nor is the cooking utensil
covered. Searing is unnecessary.
If desired, season
meat with salt and pepper.
Check weight of meat and place fat-side-up
on a rack
in a shallow roasting pan.
Arrange oven rack in one of the two bottom rack positions betore oven is turned on. Preheating is unnecessary
for roasting meats.
Meats are roasted at 325°F. except tenderloin (425” F.)
and smaller poultry (375 to 400°F.). Turn the Oven
Temperature
Control to the desired temperature.
Cooking time is determined by the weight of the meat and
the desired doneness. Use the chart given below as a
guide in determining
cooking times. The most accurate
way is with a meat thermometer.
Insert thermometer
so the tip is in the center of the thickest part of the meat
and is not touching bone or fat.
ROASTING
After cooking, remove meat from oven and let stand 15
to 20 minutes for easier carving. Rare or medium rare
meats should be removed from the oven when the internal temperature is 5 to 10” less than the final desired
temperature for meat will continue to cook slightly while
standing.
Frozen meat may be cooked in the same way as fresh
meat if the meat is thawed first. It is also possible, however, to cook meat from the frozen state. Follow the
same roasting instructions
but increase cooking time
approximately
10 to 25 minutes per pound. When using
frozen packaged meat, follow package directions. Frozen
poultry should always be thawed before cooking except
when package directions
recommend
cooking
from
the frozen state such as for frozen turkey rolls. DO NOT
REFREEZE MEATS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN COOKED
FIRST.

BAKING
OVEN RACKS: Arrange oven racks in the correct positions BEFORE the oven is turned on. If using only one
rack, position rack so the food is near the center of the
oven. If using both racks, allow 3 to 4 inches between
racks. The racks should be arranged so they divide the
oven in thirds,
PAN PLACEMENT: Allow 2 inches between utensils and
the oven walls. Utensils should not touch each other,
the oven walls or the oven window, on models so equipped. When using both racks for cooking, stagger
the utensils so one is neither directly over another nor
touching each other or the oven walls.
Cooking results will be affected by the use of utensils
that are too large for the oven rack, misplacement
of
utensils in the oven or placing too many utensils on an
oven rack. Incorrect placement of cooking utensils in
the oven will prevent proper oven air circulation
which
affects cooking results and oven operation.
Never place pans directly on the oven bottom.
TIMINGS:
Check the food after the minimum
time
recommended
in the recipe and continue checking at
intervals until the food is done.
Leave the oven door closed until the minimum baking
time given has elapsed, then check food. Do not be a
“peeping
Tom”. Opening the door frequently
during
cooking allows excessive heat to escape which wastes
fuel and affects baking results.
UTENSILS: To obtain good baking results, use bright
or light colored aluminum pans for cookies or biscuits
and dull or anodized aluminum pans for pies and breads.
Dark pans absorb heat and cause overbrowning.
Bake biscuits and cookies on a flat sheet or very shallow
pan. The bottom of an inverted pan may be used. If sheet
or utensil has sides, pale or light browning will occur.
For a crisp crust, use glass or dull, anodized aluminum
pie plates and bread pans.
When baking cakes in glass utensils, lower recommended temperature by 25” F. and use the recommended
cooking time in the recipe. It is not necessary to lower
temperatures
for baking pies or cooking casseroles in
glass utensils.
Use level pans. Warped ones result in uneven browning
and poorly shaped products.
Use the size pan recommended
in the recipe. As a general guide, cake pans should be filled only about twothirds full.
CORRECT USE OF ALUMINUM
FOIL: Do not place
aluminum foil directly on the oven bottom. A piece of
foil that is slightly larger than the cooking utensil can
be placed on the rack directly below the one holding
the cooking utensil.
Do not completely
cover an oven rack with foil. This
blocks air flow, affects cooking results and could be
a safety hazard.
Do not use aluminum foil directly under a cooking utensil. Foil will reflect heat away from the utensil and will
cause pie crusts to be soggy on the bottom crust or have
pale browning on the top crust.

BROILING
Before broiling, trim excess fat to prevent excessive
spattering
and cut slashes around the outer edges of
the meat to prevent the meat from curling during cooking.
Food must be placed on the broiler tray in the broiler
pan to allow fat to drip to the pan below. Fat may become
hot enough to ignite if directly exposed to the flame.
Place food on a cold, ungreased broiler tray.
ings to allow fat to drip to pan below. The broiler tray
is designed to keep fat from being directly exposed to
the oven burner to eliminate possible fire hazards.
Place food in the rack position as suggested in the guide
below. If food is placed too close to the flame, overbrowning and smoking may occur. Broiling is always done with
the door closed.
Never leave a soiled broiler tray and pan in the oven after
broiling. Drippings might become hot enough to ignite
if exposed directly to the flame.
The broiler pan can be lined with aluminum foil for ease
of cleaning. If the broiler tray is lined with foil, cut open-

CARE INFORMATION
Be sure the range or built-in oven is cool before removing
parts for cleaning. After removing any part, be sure it
is correctly replaced.
OVEN DOOR
OVEN
There are two types of oven doors-lift
off and nonlift
off. The lift off door is identified by the two hinge slots
located behind the hinge arms on the door.
To remove lift off door: Open door to the “stop” position
(opened about 4-inches) and grasp doorwith both hands
at sides of the door. Lift up evenly, at the same angle,
until the door clears the hinges.
The oven(s) will have one of two types of finishes-either
porcelain-enamel
or the Continuous
Cleaning
Oven
finish. The porcelain-lined
oven is dark gray in color with
a smooth glass-like textured surface. The Continuous
Cleaning finish is a dark charcoal gray colorwith a rough
textured surface.
See page 18 for additional information on the Continuous
Cleaning Oven finish.
To clean a porcelain-lined
oven: Wipe acid stains immediately with a dry clbth. Clean oven walls, bottom
and door with hot soapy water. Stubborn soil can be
removed with cleansing powders, plastic pads or a paste
of baking soda and water. Do not use steel wool or other
abrasive scouring pads for they will scratch the surface.
Commercial
oven cleaners can be used but follow the
manufacturer’s
directions.
COMMERCIAL
OVEN CLEANERS
When using oven cleaners,
carefully
follow manufacturer’s directions. Wear rubber gloves to protect your
hands for oven cleaners are caustic.
Use oven cleaners on the porcelain-lined
oven only.
Never use cleaners on the oven burner, surface burners,
end panels, exterior finishes, trim parts or on the Continuous Cleaning Oven finish. These parts will be permanently damaged by the cleaner.
After using the oven cleaner, rinse oven interior and
thermostat sensing device, located at the top of the oven,
with a mild solution of vinegar and water.
To replace door: Hold door in the same position and
insert hinge openings on hinge arms. (Hinge arms are
spring mounted and will slam shut against the range if
accidentally
hit with the dool.) Lower door evenly, at
the same angle as hinge, until door is seated in the.
original position.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to open or close door from the
“stop” position until tlie door is completely
seated on
the hinges.
OVEN RACKS
All ovens are equipped with two oven racks with a safe:,
“lock-stop”
position to keep racks from coming co!r
pletely out of the oven when adding or removing foe:,
To remove rack: Be sure rack is cool. Pull rack out tI
the “lock-stop”
position, tilt up and continue pulling I! 11’
the rack is released.
To replace rack: Place rack on rack supports, tilt up 27
push to rear of oven. Pull rack out to “lock-stop”
PO:?
tion to be sure rack has been properly replaced.
To clean racks: Wash with soapy water. Remove stubborn soil with cleansing powder or a soap-filled scouring
pad. Rinse, dry and correctly replace rack in the oven.
OVEN DOOR WINDOW
Occasionally,
you may find that the window in the oven
door may fog due to moisture condensing
in the oven.
This is especially common in humid weather or when
cooking foods high in moisture. Opening the oven door
a few inches during the first few minutes of preheating
or cooking will allow moist air to escape and prevent
the window from fogging.
15
OVEN BOTTOM
LOWER BROILER
COMPARTMENT
The oven bottom is insulated to eliminate hot spots
directly above the oven burner. Eliminating the hot spots
greatly increases the baking efficiency
as well as the
cooking capacity of the oven.
To remove oven bottom: Be sure oven bottom is cool.
First remove oven racks, then loosen the two screws
located along the front of the oven bottom. Slide the
screws back to release the front of the oven bottom.
Grasp oven bottom, lift up and pull forward until rear
tabs release. Then, remove oven bottom from oven.
Store broiler tray and pan in the broiler compartment
when not in use to prevent possible scorching of the
floor under the range when the oven is in use.
To remove drawer on 30- or 364nch ranges: Be sure
broiler is cool. Firmly grasp drawer and slide out to the
first stop. Lift up and pull to the second stop. Lower
drawer to the floor, grasp rear of broiler drawer and lift up.
To remove drawer on 204nch ranges: Remove broiler
tray and pan. Pull metal clip, located in center of drawer
floor, up about 2-inches, then pull drawer out.
To clean broller compartment:
The broiler compartment
is lined with porcelain-enamel.
Follow cleaning information for porcelain-lined
ovens.
To clean broiler tray and pan: Remove pan and tray from
broiler after use. Cool, pour off grease and place a soapy
cloth over the tray and pan. Let soak to loosen soil, then
wash in hot soapy water. Use a soap-filled scouring pad
to remove stubborn soil. If desired, tray and pan can be
cleaned in the dishwasher.
To replace oven bottom: Insert tabs into slots on the
back oven wall. Lower into place, slide two screws forward and tighten. Be sure bottom is fitted into slots and
screws are tight. If not correctly replaced, even bottom
may become warped and cooking results will be affected.
To clean oven bottom: Oven bottom will have the same
finish as the oven. Follow cleaning instructionsforcleaning oven. When cleaning oven bottom, do not allow insulation, located under the oven bottom, to become wet.
LEVELING
LEGS
The range can be leveled on uneven floors by adjusting
the leveling leg screws in the bottom of the range. Leveling legs are located in the four corners of the range.

just a little larger than the pan, can be placed on the rack
directly below the rack holding the utensil to catch spills.
Over a period of time, wear marks may appear on the
embossed rack supports. This is normal and results from
sliding the racks in and out of the oven. Wear marks will
not affect the cleaning action of the oven.
NOTE: The lower broiler compartment
is lined with
porcelain-enamel
and NOT with the Continuous
Cleaning finish. Follow cleaning instructions
on page 15.
CLEANING
The special ceramic finish of the Continuous
Cleaning
Oven is identified
by its dark gray color and rough,
porous texture. The rough texture acts to prevent grease
spatters from forming beads which run down the walls
leaving unsightly
streaks. Rather, the rough texture
absorbs spatters and allows them to spread, thus exposing a larger area to the hot oven air for faster more
effective cleaning action.
Cleaning action automatically
begins whenever the oven
is turned on for baking or roasting. The oven MUST be
on for cleaning to take place-no
cleaning will occur
when the oven is off. The special finish must be exposed
to hot oven air before soil will begin to gradually reduce
in size.
FACTORS
CLEANING
AFFECTING
TIME
LENGTH
OF
The higher the oven temperature, the faster the cleaning
action. The length of cleaning time will depend on these
factors: Type of soil, amount or size of soil, oven temperature and length of time oven is in use. Time may vary
from a few minutes to several hours. Soil deposited at
the end of cooking may still be visible. This will usually
fade with continued
oven use until the soil gradually
disappears or can be wiped up manually. The oven will
appear presentably
clean, even though some spatters
may be present.
MANUALLY
CLEANING
EYE LEVEL
RANGE
The smaller upper oven on the Eye Level Range will be
equipped with either a conventional
gas oven or a microwave oven.
Eye Level Range wlth Conventlonal
Upper Oven: The
Eye Level conventional
oven operates the same as the
larger lower oven. Because of the size and location of
the upper oven, it is a handy place to cook small quantities of foods.
The smaller oven, which is very efficient for most purposes, does have some size limitations. Do not use cookie
sheets or other cooking utensils that are larger than
lbinches.
Large cookie sheets will block the air flow
which in turn affects baking results. When baking more
than one cake layer at a time, use two different rack positions for the two layers and stagger the pans so one is
not directly over the other.
Eye Level Range with Microwave Oven: Refer to the Use
and Care Microwave Oven Booklet for operating instructions on the microwave oven.
This range is equipped with a special, automatic fan to
help keep the microwave oven cool during somecooking
operations.
Do not be concerned if you hear the auxiliary fan come on
during, or sometimes after, some conventional
cooking
operations. The fan is activated by the thermal sensor and
will turn on and remain on until the air temperatures in the
upper section of range are reduced to a safe level. The fan
may remain on for a time after the conventional
oven or
surface units have been turned off.
CAUTION: To prevent permanent damage to the range
parts, the range MUST be installed according
to the
Installation
Instructions.
Refer to the instructions
for
correct clearances.
OPERATION
OF ANY SURFACE BURNER WITHOUT
A UTENSIL
IN PLACE WILL CAUSE PERMANENT
DAMAGE TO THE RANGE PARTS.
HEAVY SPILLOVERS
The special finish will clean most spatters during normal
oven use unless there is a heavy buildup of soil. Heavy
spillovers
such as pie or casserole boilovers will not
clean effectively without some manual help, The crusty
or varnish-like
stains that form from these spillovers
clog the pores and prevent the special finish from being
exposed to the hot oven air. This greatly reduces the
cleaning effectiveness
of the finish.
These crusty or varnish-like
stains must either be removed or broken up before cleaning can effectively
take place.
To manually clean heavy splllovers: Brush off heavy soil
with a nylon brush or plastic pad. DO NOT USE paper
