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

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.

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.
