Important Safety Instructions Continued l l l l l l l 4 Install or locate the range only in accordance with the provided Installation Instructions. h is recommended that the range be installed by a qualified installer. The range must be properly connected to the proper gas supply and checked for leaks.. The range must also be properly connected to electriil supply and grounded. To reduce the risk of tipping of the appliance, the appliance must be secured by a properly installed anti-tip bracket. To check 1 the bracket is installed properly, shine a flashlight under range toward left rear corner and verii that the anti-tip bracket is engaged. See Installation Instructions for further details. Gas fuels and their use in appliances can cause minor exposures to benzene. formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and soot, primarily from incomplete combustion. Significant exposure to these substances can cause cancer or reproductive harm. Properly adjusted burners with a blue, rather than a yellow, flame will minimize incomplete combustion. Venting with a hood or an open window will further minimize exposure. Do not operate the range if it is not working properly, or if it has been damaged. Do not use the range for warming or heating the room. Persons could be burned or injured, or a fire could start. Do not attempt to light the oven burner during a power failure. Personal injury could result. Use the range only for its intended use as described in this manual. l l l l l l Do not wear bose or hanging garments when using the range. They coukf ignite if they touch a hot surface burner and you could be burned. Do not touch surface burners, areas near burners or interior surfaces of oven. Areas near surface burners and interior surfaces of an oven become hot enough to cause burns. During use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface burners, areas near -surface burners or interior surfaces of oven. Other surfaces of the range may become hot enough to cause bums; such as. the oven vent opening, the surface near the vent opening, the cooktop, the oven door and window. Make sure the utensils you use are large enough to contain food and avoid boilovers and spill-avers. Heavy splattering or spill-overs left on a range can ignite and burn you. Pan size is especially important in deep fat frying. Turn pan handles inward, but not over other surface burners. This will help reduce the chance of burns, igniting of flammable materials, and spills due to bumping of the pan. Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp pothofders on surface burners may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch surface burners. Do not use a towel or bulky cloth for a potholder. lt could catch on fire. Check to be sure glass cooking utensils are safe for use on the range. Only certain types of glass, glassceramic, ceramic, earthenware or other glazed utensils are suitable for ranges without breaking due to the sudden change in temperatpre. l l l l l l l l l Do not use decorative covers or trivets over the surface burners. Do not heat unopened containers. They could explode. The hot contents could cause burns and container particles could cause injury. Grease is flammable and should be handled carefully. Let fat cool before attempting to handle ft. Do not allow grease to collect around cooktop or in vents. wipe spill-avers immediately. Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up a flaming pan. Smother flaming pan on range by covering with a well-fitted lid, cookie sheet or flat tray. Flaming grease outside of pan can be extinguished with baking soda or, if available, a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher. Never leave surface burners unattended at high heat settings. A boilover could result and cause smoking and greasy spill-avers that may ignite. Make sure surface burners are off when you are finished, and when you are not watching. Use care when opening oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food. Always position oven rack(s) in desired location while oven is cool. Do not store flammable materials on or near the range. They could explode or burn. l l l l l l l l l l Do not store things chiklren might want above the range. Children could be burned or injured while climbing on it. 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 part of the range. They could be burned or injured.
