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.

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.
Never use a match or other flame to look
for a gas leak. Explosion and injury could
resu!.
Knowwhere your main gas shut off valve is
located.
Keep range vents unobstructed.
Clean your range regularly. See care and
cleaning instructions in this manual.
Be sure all range parts are cool before
cleaning.
Do not clean door heat seal. It is essential
for a good seal. Care shoukf be taken not
to rub, damage, or move the seal. Clean
only parts recommended in this Use and
Care Guide.
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.
Disconnect the electrical supply before
servicing the range.

Adjustlng the oven temperature wntrol
Does your oven seem hotter or colder than your
old oven? The temperature of your old oven may
have shifted gradually without you 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.
lf, 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:
1. TuTn the Oven Temperature Control Knob to
the off position. Pull knob straight off and flip
it over so the back matches the illustration in
Step 2.
2. Loosen the locking screws.
Note the posl-
tlon of the Indicator.
