ImportantSafetyInstructions READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS Gas ranges have been thoroughly tested for safe and efficient operation. However, as with any appliance, there are specific installation and safety precautions which must be followed to ensure safe and satisfactory . operation. To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to persons, or including damage when using the range, follow basic precautions, WARNING: If the information in this manual is not followed exactly, a fire or explosion may result causing death, personal injury, or property damage. DO NOT STORE OR USE GASOLINE OR OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND LIQUIDS IN THE VICINITY OF THIS OR ANY OTHER APPLIANCE. WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS: l DO NOT TRY TO LIGHT ANY APPLIANCE. l DO NOT TOUCH ANY ELECTRICAL SWITCH; DO NOT USE ANY PHONE IN YOUR BUILDING. l IMMEDIATELY CALL YOUR GAS SUPPLIER FROM A NEIGHBOR’S PHONE. FOLLOW THE GAS SUPPLIER’S INSTRUCTIONS. l IF YOU CANNOT REACH YOUR GAS SUPPLIER, CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. INSTALLATION AND SERVICE MUST BE PERFORMED BY A QUALIFIED INSTALLER, SERVICE AGENCY OR THE GAS SUPPLIER. Important Continued l l Safety Instructions Install or locate the range only in accordance with the provided Installation Instructions. The range must 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 electrical supply and grounded. 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. l l l l l l l l 4 WARNING: To reduce the risk of tipping the appliance, the appliance must be secured by a properly installed anti-tip bracket. To check if the bracket is installed properly, shine a flashlight under range toward left rear corner and verify that the anti-tip bracket is engaged. See Installation Instructions for further details. Do not operate the range if it is damaged or not working properly. 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. Reset oven controls to the off position in the event of a power failure. Use the range only for its intended use as described in this manual. l l l Do not wear loose or hanging garments when using the range. They could ignite if they touch a hot surface burner and you could be burned. Do not touch surface burners, areas near surface burners, or interior surfaces of oven. Areas near surface burners and interior surfaces of an oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface burners, areas near surface burners, or interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the range, such as the oven vent opening, the surface near the vent opening, the cooktop, and the oven door and window, could also become hot enough to cause burns. Make sure the utensils you use are large enough to contain food and avoid boilovers and spillovers. Heavy splattering or spillovers 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 pot holders. Moist or damp pot holders on surface burners may result in burns from steam. Do not let pot holder touch an open flame. Do not use a towel or bulky cloth for a pot holder. It could catch on fire. Check to be sure glass cooking utensils are safe for use on the range. Only certain types of glass, glass-ceramic, ceramic, earthenware or other glazed utensils are suitable for ranges without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. l 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. Do not allow grease to collect around cooktop or in vents. Wipe spillovers 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 spillovers that may ignite. 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. The fumes can create an explosion and/or fire hazard. Do not use the oven for storage. Do not use aluminum foil to line area around burners, oven bottom, or any other part of the range. Use aluminum foil only as recommended in this manual. Do not store things children might want above the range. Children could be burned or injured while climbing on it. l 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. l Never use a match or other flame to look for a gas leak. Explosion and injury could result. l Know where your main gas shut off valve is located. l Keep range vents unobstructed. . Do not clean door heat seal. It is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the seal. Clean only parts recommended in this Use and Care Guide. l 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. l Any additions, changes, or conversions required in order for this appliance to satisfactorily meet the application needs must be made by a Whirlpool service company or Qualified Agency. l Disconnect the electrical supply and the gas supply at the shutoff valve near the range before servicing the range. l - READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS - UsingYourRange Using the surface burners Control knobs must be pushed in and turned to the LITE position.
