Safety
Stepping, leaning or sitting on the door or drawer of this appliance
can result in serious injuries and may also cause damage to the appliance. Do not
allow children to climb or play around the appliance. The weight of a child on an open door
may cause the appliance to tip, resulting in serious burns or other injury. An open drawer,
when hot, may cause burns.
Do not use the oven or warmer drawer (if equipped) for storage.
• Storage in or on Appliance—Flammable materials should not be stored in an
oven, near surface units or in the drawer (if equipped). This includes paper, plastic
and cloth items, such as cookbooks, plasticware and towels, as well as flammable
liquids. Do not store explosives, such as aerosol cans, on or near the appliance.
Flammable materials may explode and result in fire or property damage.
Never use this appliance as a space heater to heat or warm the room.
Doing so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning and overheating of the oven.
Do not store items of interest to children in the cabinets above the
appliance. Children climbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.
• Do not leave children alone. Children should not be left alone or unattended in
the area where an appliance is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand
on any part of the appliance.
• DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE BURNERS, AREAS NEAR THESE BURNERS, OVEN
HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF THE OVEN OR WARMER
DRAWER (if equipped). Both surface burners and oven heating elements may be hot
even though surface burner flames are not visible or oven elements are dark in color.
Areas near surface burners may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after
use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials touch these areas until
they have had sufficient time to cool. Among these areas are the cooktop, surfaces
facing the cooktop, the oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings, oven
door and window.
• Wear Proper Apparel—Loose-fitting or hanging garments should never be worn
while using the appliance. Do not let clothing or other flammable materials contact hot
surfaces.
Never use your appliance for warming or heating the room.
• Do Not Use Water or Flour on Grease Fires—Smother the fire with a pan lid, or
use baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
• When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or grease may catch fire if allowed
to become too hot.
valve.
In case of fire or gas leak, be sure to turn off the main gas shutoff
• Use Only Dry Potholders—Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in
burns from steam. Do not let the potholders touch hot heating surface units or interior
oven elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of a potholder.
• Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers—Build up of pressure may cause the
container to burst and result in injury.
• Remove the oven door from any unused appliance if it is to be stored or
discarded.
• IMPORTANT—Do not attempt to operate the oven during a power failure. If the power
fails, always turn the oven off. If the oven is not turned off and the power resumes, the
oven may begin to operate again. Food left unattended could catch fire or spoil.

6 Safety
Electronic controllers can be damaged by cold temperatures. When
you use your appliance for the first time, or if it has not been used for a long period
of time, make sure that it has been exposed to a temperature above 0°C/32°F for at
least 3 hours before connecting it to the power supply.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR COOKTOP
Use proper flame size—Adjust flame size so it does not extend beyond the
edge of the utensil. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame
to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to flame
will also improve efficiency.
Do not use stove top grills on the burner grates of sealed gas burners. If
you use a stove top grill on a sealed gas burner, it will cause incomplete combustion and
can result in exposure to carbon monoxide levels above allowable current standards. This
can be hazardous to your health.
• Know which knob controls each surface burner. Place a pan of food on the burner
before turning it on, and turn the burner off before removing the pan.
• Always turn the knob to the full LITE position when igniting top burners. Visually
check that burner has lit. Then adjust the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of
the utensil.
• Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped with one or more surface burners
of different sizes. Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface
burner. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the surface heating unit
to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to
the surface unit will also improve efficiency.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Should Not Extend Over Adjacent
Surface Burners—To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage
due to unintentional contact with the utensil. The handle of the utensil should be positioned
so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface burners.
• Never Leave Surface Burners Unattended—Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Protective liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line oven bottom or any other part of the
appliance. Only use aluminum foil as recommended for baking if used as a cover placed
on the food. Any other used of protective liners or aluminum foil may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire or a short circuit.
• Air curtain or other overhead range hoods, which operate by blowing a downward
air flow on to a range, shall not be used in conjunction with gas ranges other
than when the hood and range have been designed, tested and listed by an
independent test laboratory for use in combination with each other.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic,
earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for cooktop service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations
for cooktop use.
• Do not use Searing Grill on the cooktop. The searing grill is not designed for use on
the cooktop. Doing so may result in a fire.
• Do Not Use Decorative Surface burner Covers. If a burner is accidentally turned
on, the decorative cover will become hot and possibly melt. Burns will occur if the hot
covers are touched. Damage may also be done to the cooktop or burners because
the covers may cause overheating. Air will be blocked from the burner and cause
combustion problems.
Safety
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN
• Use Care When Opening Door or Drawer—Stand to the side of the appliance when
opening the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or
replace food in the oven/warmer drawer.
• Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven is vented at the front above the oven
door or through the rear of cooktop. Touching the surfaces in this area when the oven is
operating may cause severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on
or near the oven vent. These items could melt or ignite.
• Placement of Oven/Warmer Drawer (if equipped) Racks. Always place oven racks in
desired location while oven/drawer (if equipped) is cool. Remove all utensils from the rack
before removing rack. If rack must be moved while oven is hot, use extreme caution. Use
potholders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact
the hot oven element or interior of the oven/warmer drawer (if equipped).
• Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. The broiler pan and grid allow dripping fat
to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler.
• Do not cover your broiler or warmer drawer (if equipped) grid with aluminum foil.
Exposed fat and grease could ignite.
• Do not touch a hot light bulb with a damp cloth. Doing so could cause the bulb to
break. Disconnect the appliance or turn off the power to the appliance before removing
and replacing light bulb.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR RANGE
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire.
Exhaust fan ventilation hoods and grease filters should be kept clean. Do not allow
grease to accumulate. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire. Refer to the hood
manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
• Cleaners/aerosols—Always follow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for
use. Be aware that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing
damage and/or injury.
SELF-CLEANING OVENS:
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts of the oven listed in this owner’s
guide. Before self-cleaning the oven, remove all utensils stored in the oven.
• Do not clean the oven door gasket. The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage or move the gasket.
• Do not use oven cleaners. No oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any part of the oven.
• Remove oven racks. Oven racks will be damaged if left in the oven during a self-cleaning cycle.
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off
during the self-clean cycle of any range. Move birds to another well ventilated room.

16 Surface Cooking
Locations of the burners
The cooktop is equipped with different sized burners.
The surface burners are located on the cooktop as follows (See
Figure):
- a 5 000 BTU (natural gas) burner located at the right rear
position;
- a 18 000 BTU (natural gas) burner located at the right front
position;
- a 9 500 BTU (natural gas) burner located at the left front
position;
- a 14 000 BTU (natural gas) burner located at the left rear
position.
Placement of burner heads and caps
For the 18 000 BTU burner:
Place the burner head over the gas orifice (Figure 1). Be careful not to damage the electrode
while placing the burner head over the orifice. Make sure electrode fits correctly into slot
in burner head.
Burner
Cap
For all burners:
Place a burner cap on each burner head (see
Figure 2), matching the cap size to the head
size. The cap for each burner has an inner
locating ring which centers the cap correctly
on the burner head. Be sure that all the burner
caps and burner heads are correctly placed
BEFORE using your appliance.

Surface cooking utensils
*GOOD
POOR
• Curved and warped pan bottoms.
• Flat bottom and straight sides.
• Pan overhangs unit by more than
2.5 cm (1”).
• Tight fitting lids.
• Weight of handle does not tilt pan.
Pan is well balanced.
• Pan sizes match the amount of
food to be prepared and the size of
burner.
• Made of material that conducts heat
well.
• Heavy handle tilts pan.
• Flame extends beyond unit.
• Easy to clean.
Note: Always use a utensil for its intended purpose. Follow manufacturer’s
instructions. Some utensils were not made to be used in the oven or on the
cooktop.
Pans should have flat bottoms.
Check for flatness by rotating a
ruler across the bottom. There
should be no gaps between the
pan and ruler.
* Specialty pans such as
lobster pots, griddles and
pressure cookers may be
used but must conform to the
above recommended cookware
requirements.
flame size
For most cooking, start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower one to complete
the process. Use the chart below as a guide for determining proper flame size for various
types of cooking. The size and type of utensil used and the amount of food being cooked will
influence the setting needed for cooking.
For deep fat frying, use a thermometer and adjust the surface control knob accordingly. If
the fat is too cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy. If the fat is too hot, the food will
brown so quickly that the center will be undercooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much
food at once as the food will neither brown nor cook properly.

*These settings are based on using medium-weight
aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using
other types of pans.
Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the utensil. A higher flame simply wastes
heat and energy, and increases your risk of being burned by the flame.
18 Surface Cooking
setting surface controls
Your cooktop may be equipped with any combination of the following burners:
Simmer Burner: best used for simmering delicate sauces, etc.
Standard Burner: used for most all surface cooking needs.
Large Burner: best used when bringing large quantities of liquid to temperature and when
preparing larger quantities of food.
Regardless of size, always select a utensil that is suitable for the amount and type of food
being prepared. Select a burner and flame size appropriate to the pan. Never allow flames
to extend beyond the outer edge of the pan.
Your cooktop is also equipped with 270° rotation flame control valves. These valves provide
enhanced control of the burner flame. Each burner lights automatically from an electric ignitor
when its control knob is turned to the LITE position.

20 Setting the Lower Oven
Lower oven operation
The lower oven provides two basic modes, cooking and warming. The lower oven is ideal
for cooking foods such as pizza, casseroles, baked potatoes and frozen convenience foods.
Use the keep warm feature to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. The lower oven
can only be used with some cooking modes; Bake, Slow Cook and Keep Warm (read their
sections for precise instructions).
Keep children away from the lower oven when hot.
Failure to do so can result in burns.
Always use oven mitts when removing food from the lower oven. The lower
oven rack, compartment, cookware/plates may be hot.
Lower Oven Tips:
• The lower oven rack must always be in place when cooking or warming. Be sure that the
rack is placed with the down turned sides into the drawer. This will provide for some air
space between the drawer and the food.
• When placing food in the lower oven always use a baking sheet or pan with 4 raised sides
to prevent food from sliding off.
• DO NOT LINE THE OVEN DRAWER WITH FOIL OR COVER THE OVEN RACK WITH
FOIL. This may result in damage to your oven.
• The maximum height of foods and utensils that may be used in the lower oven is 4”. The
maximum width is 15”. Pay close attention to foods that have potential to rise beyond
the recommended 4” maximum height.
• Use pans in the lower oven large enough to contain food and any juices created from the
cooking process.
• Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may
melt onto the drawer or surrounding areas and be
very difficult to clean. Use a lid or aluminum foil instead.
Use only utensils and cookware in the oven drawer that
are recommended for oven use in the upper oven.
• When using the lower oven, limit the number of times the
drawer is opened; this will minimize heat loss. Repeated
opening of the drawer during the cooking process may
increase cooking times and produce uneven cooking
results. The cooking times for the lower oven may vary
slightly from the upper oven.
NOTE: The lower oven will not operate when the upper oven is
set for self-cleaning or if the control lockout feature is active.
Should an oven fire occur, close the drawer and turn the lower oven OFF.
If the fire continues, use a fire extinguisher. DO NOT put water or flour on the fire. Flour
may be explosive.
Cooking Modes
baking
This mode is best used for your standard recipes. The hidden bake element is used to heat
the air and maintain temperature. The temperature probe can be used in this cooking mode.
The upper oven can be programmed to bake at any temperature from 170°F to 550°F with a
default temperature of 350°F. The lower oven can be programmed to bake at any temperature
from 170°F to 450°F with a default temperature of 350°F.
Upper Oven Baking Tips:
• Always preheat your oven before using the bake mode.
• During preheat, the 3 elements and the convection fan
are used in cycle to quickly heat the oven.
• Use only one rack and center the pans as much as
possible.
• If using two racks, place the oven racks in positions 2
and 6.
• Allow 2” to 4” (5,1 to 10,2cm) around the utensil(s) for
proper air circulation.
• Be sure the pans do not touch each other, the door,
sides or back of the oven.
If using multiple pans or
racks, stagger as shown.

Use caution with the COOK TIME or END TIME features. Use the automatic timer when cooking
cured or frozen meats and most fruits and vegetables. Foods that can easily spoil such as milk, eggs, fish, meat
or poultry, should be chilled in the refrigerator first. Even when chilled, they should not stand in the oven for
more than 1 hour before cooking begins, and should be removed promptly when cooking is completed. Eating
spoiled food can result in sickness from food poisoning.
Cooking Modes
broiling
This mode is best for meats, fish and poultry up to 1” thick. Broiling is a method of cooking
tender cuts of meat by direct heat under the broil element of the oven. The high heat cooks
quickly and gives a rich, brown outer appearance. The temperature probe cannot be used
with this mode. The oven can be programmed to broil at any temperature from 300°F to
550°F with a default temperature of 550°F.
Broiling Tips:
•For optimum browning, preheat the broil element for 2 minutes.
•Broil one side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and
serve.
•Always pull the rack out to the "stop" position before turning or removing food.
•Always use the broiler pan and its grid when broiling. It allows the dripping grease to be
kept away from the high heat of the broil element (see Figure 1).
•For best broiling results, broil with the oven door slightly open.
•DO NOT use the broil pan without the insert. DO NOT cover the broil pan insert with
foil. The exposed grease could catch fire. DO NOT use the roasting rack when broiling.

24 Cooking Modes
Convection baking
This mode of cooking enables you to obtain the best
culinary results when baking with multiple pans and
racks. Multiple rack baking may slightly increase cook
time for some foods but the overall result is time saved.
Most foods cooked in a standard oven will cook faster
and more evenly with Convection Bake. Convection
baking uses the three elements and a fan to circulate
the oven’s heat evenly and continuously within the oven.
The temperature probe can be used in this cooking
mode. The oven can be programmed for Convection
baking at any temperature between 170°F to 550°F
with a default temperature of 350°F.
Convection Bake
Air Flow
Convection Baking Tips:
• Always preheat your oven before using the Convection Bake mode.
• If your recipe cooking temperature has already been converted for convection baking
there is no need to reduce your oven temperature. If your recipe has not had the
temperature converted for convection baking you can easily reduce the temperature
using the Convection Convert feature. Please see Convection Convert section on next
page for further instruction on temperature conversion.
• Use tested recipes with times adjusted for convection baking when using this mode. With
single rack convection baking some foods may have as much as a 25% reduction in cook
time; check food at minimum time. Time reductions will vary depending on the amount and
type of food to be cooked.
• When using Convection Bake with a single rack, place oven rack in position 3 or 4. If
cooking on multiple racks, place the oven racks in positions 2 and 6 or 1, 4 and 7.
• Most bakeries (except cakes) should be baked on pans with no sides or very low sides to
allow heated air to circulate around the food.
• Food baked on pans with a dark finish will cook faster.

26 Cooking Modes
Convection roasting
This mode is best for cooking tender cuts of beef, lamb, pork and poultry. Use this mode
when cooking speed is desired. The Convection Roasting gently browns the exterior and
seals in the juices. Convection roasting uses the hidden bake element, the hidden convection
element, the broil element and a fan to circulate the oven’s heat evenly and continuously
within the oven. The temperature probe can be used in this cooking mode. The oven can be
programmed for Convection Roasting at any temperature between 170°F to 550°F with a
default temperature of 350°F.
Convection Roasting Tips:
• Use the broiler pan and grid, and the roasting rack (Figure 1). The broiler pan will catch
grease spills and the grid will help prevent spatters. The roasting rack will hold the meat.
• Place an oven rack on rack position 2 (next-bottom).
• Make sure the roasting rack is securely seated on the grid in the broiler pan. The roasting
rack fits on the grid allowing the heated air to circulate under the food for even cooking and
helps to increase browning on the underside.
• There is no need to reduce the convection temperature or to use the Convection Convert
feature with this cooking mode.
• DO NOT use the broiler pan without the grid or cover the grid with aluminum foil.
• Always pull the rack out to the stop position before removing food.
• Position food (fat side up) on the roasting rack.

32 Cooking Modes
perfect turkey
This mode uses the temperature probe to control precisely the cooking of a perfect turkey.
The convection system gently browns the turkey’s exterior and seals in the juices. The
temperature probe is required with this cooking mode (read its section on next page for more
details). The oven can be programmed for Perfect Turkey at any temperature between 170°F
to 550°F with a default temperature of 325°F. The probe default temperature for the perfect
turkey feature is 180°F.
Perfect Turkey Tips:
• Thaw the turkey in the refrigerator at least 24 hours per 5 lbs before cooking the bird.
• Use the broiler pan and grid, and the roasting rack. The broiler pan will catch grease spills
and the grid will help prevent spatters. The roasting rack will hold the turkey.
• Place an oven rack on rack position 2 (next-bottom).
• Make sure the roasting rack is securely seated on the grid in the broiler pan. The roasting
rack fits on the grid allowing the heated air to circulate under the food for even cooking and
helps to increase browning on the underside.
To set a Perfect Turkey of 325°F:
1. Arrange interior oven racks and place food in the oven.
2. Insert the meat probe into the bird and connect it in the oven (read the probe section on
next page for more details).

temperature probe
For many foods, especially roasts and poultry, testing the internal temperature is the best
method to insure properly cooked food. The Temperature Probe gets the exact temperature
you desire without having to guess. This feature can be used with Bake, Convection Bake,
Convection Roast and Perfect Turkey cooking modes. The oven can be programmed for
Probe at any temperature between 130°F to 210°F with a default temperature of 170°F. This
unit is equipped with one temperature probe entry in the upper oven only.
IMPORTANT:
1. Use only the probe supplied with your appliance; any other may result in damage to the
probe or the appliance.
2. Handle the Temperature Probe carefully when inserting and removing it from the food and outlet.
3. Do not use tongs to pull the cable when inserting or removing the Probe. It could damage the Probe.
4.Defrost your food completely before inserting the Probe to avoid breaking it.
5.Never leave or store the Temperature Probe inside the oven when not in use.
6. To prevent the possibility of burns, carefully unplug the Temperature Probe using hot pads.
Proper Temperature Probe Placement:
1. Always insert the probe so that the tip rests in the center of the thickest part of
the meat. Do not allow probe to touch bone, fat, gristle or pan.
2. For bone-in ham or lamb, insert the Probe into the center of the lowest large muscle
or joint. For dishes such as meat loaf or casseroles, insert the Probe into the center
of the food. When cooking fish, insert the Probe from just above the gill into the meatiest
area, parallel to the backbone.
3. For whole poultry (chicken, turkey, etc.), insert the probe into the thickest part of the inner
thigh from below and parallel to the leg (see figure 1).
Setting the Oven when using the Temperature Probe:
1. Insert the Temperature Probe into the food (see Proper Temperature Probe Placement above).
2. Plug the Temperature Probe into its outlet in the oven. (The outlet is located on the top left
hand side of the cavity wall, near front of the oven). Always insert the probe into a cool
oven. Make sure it is pushed all the way into the outlet. Close the oven door.

Burner Caps
Should you ever need to remove the burner caps for cleaning lift the burner cap off the
burner head. Clean heavy soils with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth
and immediately thoroughly dry including the bottom and inside of the cap. Do not use
harsh abrasive cleaners. They can scratch the porcelain on the cap. Do not clean burner
caps in dishwasher.
When placing the burner caps, see Important note below.
IMPORTANT
When placing the burner caps on the cooktop, be sure the burner caps are seated firmly on top of burner
heads. Improper flame size and uneven heating may result when any surface burners are turned ON and
the burner caps are not seated correctly.
Double ring burner cap
The glass in the double ring is designed to fit loosely. Clean with normal non abrasive glass
type cleaner and thoroughly dry before replacing.
Burner heads
Lift the burner cap from the burner head. The surface burner heads are secured to the
cooktop and must be cleaned in place.
For proper gas flow it may be necessary to clean the burner heads and slots. To clean, first
use a clean DAMP cloth to soak up any spills. Remove any food from between the burner
slots using a small nonabrasive brush like a toothbrush and afterwards wipe using a damp
cloth. For stubborn soils located in the slots, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean.
Should you experience ignition problems it may be that an ignition port hole is partially
blocked with soil (see figs 1 & 2). With the burner head in place, use a small wire gauge
needle or the end of a paper clip to clear the ignition port or ports.

Solutions to Common Problems
Important
Before calling for service, review this list. It may save you both time and expense. This list
includes common experiences that are not the result of defective workmanship or material
in your cooktop.
Oven Control Beeps and Displays an “F” ERROR COde
• Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Push CANCEL pad to clear the display and stop
the display from beeping. Reprogram the oven. If a fault reoccurs, record the fault number, push the
CANCEL pad and contact an authorized servicer.
Installation
• Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven rack. Contact installing agent if rack and
cabinet cutout flooring are not level.
• Kitchen cabinet misalignment may make range appear to be not level. Be sure cabinets are square
and level. Contact cabinet maker to correct problem.
Entire range does not operate
• When the range is first plugged in, or when the power supply to the oven has been interrupted, the
display will flash. The range cannot be programmed until the clock is set.
• Be sure electrical cord is securely connected into the electrical junction box.
• Cord/plug is not installed and/or connected. Cord is not supplied with range. Contact your dealer,
installing agent or authorized servicer.
• Service wiring not complete. Contact your dealer, installing agent or authorized servicer.
• Power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric company.
• Short in cord/plug. Replace cord/plug.
• Controls are not set properly. See instructions to set the controls.
• House fuse has blown or circuit breaker has tripped immediately following installation.
• House fuse may not be fully engaged. Check fuse and screw or engage circuit breaker securely.
Oven light does not work
• Burned-out or loose bulb. Follow the instructions under Oven Light to replace or tighten the bulb.
Self-cleaning cycle does not work
• Make sure the oven door is closed.
• Make sure you have removed the oven racks and the oven rack supports from the oven.
• Controls not set properly. Follow instructions under “Using the Self-Clean Feature”.
Oven smokes Excessively during broiling
• Meat too close to the broiler element. Reposition the rack to provide more clearance between the
meat and the broiler. Preheat broil element for quick searing operation.
• Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut remaining fatty edges to prevent
curling, but do not cut into the lean.
• Grid on broiler pan wrong side-up. Grease does not drain into broiler pan. Always place the grid on
the broiler pan with the ribs up and the slots down to allow grease to drip into the pan.
• Broiler pan used without grid or grid cover with aluminum foil. DO NOT use the broiler pan without
the grid or cover the grid with aluminum foil.
• Oven needs to be cleaned. Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary
when broiling frequently. Grease or food spatters cause excessive smoking.
49
50 Solutions to Common Problems
Soil not completely removed after self-cleaning cycle is
completed
• Failure to clean bottom, from top of oven, frame of oven or door area outside oven seal. These
areas are not in the self-cleaning area, but get hot enough to burn on residue. Clean these areas
before the self-cleaning cycle is started. Burned on residue can be cleaned with a stiff nylon brush
and water or a nylon scrubber. Be careful not to damage the oven gasket.
• Excessive spillovers in oven. Set the self-clean cycle for longer cleaning time.
Poor Cooking results
• Many factors affect baking results. See Baking for hints, causes and corrections. See Adjusting
Oven Temperature.
• Many factors affect cooking results. Adjust the recipe’s recommended power levels or cooking
times.
• Cookware is too lightweight or warped. Use heavier quality cookware so foods being prepared may
cook more evenly.
Flames inside oven or smoke from vent
• Excessive spillovers in oven. This is normal, especially for high oven temperatures, pie spillovers
or for large amounts of grease on bottom of oven. Wipe up excessive spillovers.
surface burners do not light
• Surface Control knob has not been completely turned to LITE. Push in and turn the Surface
Control knob to LITE until burner ignites and then turn control knob to desired flame size.
• Be sure gas supply valve is open.
• Burner ports are clogged. Clean burners. See Cleaning the Burner Grates, Burner Caps,
Burner Heads in General Care & Cleaning section. With the burner off, clean ports with a smallgauge wire or needle.
• Power cord is disconnected from outlet (Electric Ignition Models only). Be sure cord is securely
plugged into the outlet.
• Electrical power outage (electric ignition models only). Burners can be lit manually. See Setting
Surface Controls in this Use and Care Guide.
Burner flame only lights half way around burner
• Burner ports are clogged. With the burner off, clean ports by using a small-gauge wire or needle.
• Moisture is present after cleaning. Lightly fan the flame and allow burner to operate until flame is
full. Dry the burners thoroughly following instructions in the General Cleaning section.
Food not heating evenly
• Improper cookware. Select flat-bottomed cookware of a proper size to fit element.
• Incorrect control setting. Raise or lower setting until proper amount of heat is obtained.
Burner flame is orange
• Dust particles in main line. Allow the burner to operate a few minutes until flame turns blue.
• In coastal areas, a slightly orange flame is unavoidable due to salt air. Ceramic-Glass Cooktop
section in this Owner’s Guide.
• Cookware with rough bottom has been used. Use flat-bottomed, smooth utensils. See Selecting
Surface Cooking Utensils in this Owner’s Guide.
