SAFETY INFORMATION
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
WARNING GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (CONT.)
■ Never block the vents (air openings) of the
range. They provide the air inlets and outlets
that are necessary for the range to operate
properly with correct combustion. Air openings
are located at the rear of the cooktop, at the top
and bottom of the oven door, and at the bottom
of the range under the warming drawer, lower
oven drawer or kick panel.
■ Use only dry pot holders—moist or damp pot
holders on hot surfaces may result in burns
from steam. Do not let pot holders touch surface
burners, burner grate, or oven heating element.
Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth in place
of pot holders.
■ Do not touch the heating elements or the
interior surface of the oven. These surfaces
may be hot enough to burn even though they
are dark in color. During and after use, do
not touch, or let clothing or other flammable
materials contact any interior area of the oven;
allow sufficient time for cooling first. Other
surfaces of the appliance may become hot
enough to cause burns. Potentially hot surfaces
include the burners, grates, oven vent opening,
surfaces near the opening and crevices around
the oven door.
■ Do not heat unopened food containers.
Pressure could build up and the container could
burst, causing an injury.
■ Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meat to
at least an internal temperature of 160°F and
poultry to at least an internal temperature of
180°F. Cooking to these temperatures usually
protects against foodborne illness.
WARNING KEEP FLAMMABLE MATERIALS AWAY FROM THE OVEN
Failure to do so may result in fire or personal injury.
■ Do not store or use flammable materials in
an oven or near the cooktop, including paper,
plastic, pot holders, linens, wall coverings,
curtains, drapes and gasoline or other
flammable vapors and liquids.
■ Never wear loose-fitting or hanging garments
while using the appliance. Avoid storing
commonly used items in cabinets above the
range and be careful when reaching over the
range. Clothing in close proximity to burners or
hot surfaces may ignite causing severe burns.
4
■ Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
Grease in the oven or on the cooktop may ignite.
■ Clean ventilating hoods frequently. Grease
should not be allowed to accumulate on the
hood or filter.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
49-85214
■ Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up
a flaming pan. Turn the controls off. Smother a
flaming pan on a surface burner by covering the
pan completely with a well-fitting lid, cookie sheet
or flat tray. If necessary, use a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ If there is a fire in the oven during baking, turn
the oven off and keep the door closed until the
fire goes out. If necessary, use a multi-purpose
dry chemical or foam type fire extinguisher.
■ If there is a fire in the oven during self-clean, turn
the oven off and wait for the fire to go out. Do
not force the door open. Introduction of fresh air
at self-clean temperatures may lead to a burst
of flame from the oven. Failure to follow this
instruction may result in severe burns.
SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNING IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE, TAKE THE FOLLOWING
STEPS TO PREVENT INJURY AND FIRE SPREADING
WARNING COOKTOP SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
■ Never leave the surface burners unattended at
medium or high heat settings. Foods, especially
oily foods, may ignite resulting in fire that could
spread to surrounding cabinets.
■ Never leave oil unattended while frying. If
allowed to heat beyond its smoking point, oil
may ignite resulting in fire that may spread
to surrounding cabinets. Use a deep fat
thermometer whenever possible to monitor oil
temperature.
■ To avoid oil spillover and fire, use a minimum
amount of oil when shallow pan-frying and avoid
cooking frozen foods with excessive amounts of
ice.
■ Use proper pan size and avoid pans that are
unstable or easily tipped. Select cookware that is
matched to the size of the burner. Burner flames
should be adjusted so that they do not extend
beyond the bottom of the pan. Excessive flame
may be hazardous.
■ Always use the LITE position when igniting the
top burners and make sure the burners have
ignited.
■ When using glass/ceramic cookware, make sure
it is suitable for cooktop service; others may
break because of sudden change in temperature.
■ To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition of
flammable materials and spillage, the handle of a
container should be turned toward the center of
the range without extending over nearby burners.
■ When preparing flaming foods under a hood, turn
the fan on.
■ Do not use a wok with a round metal support
ring. The ring may trap heat and block air to the
burner resulting in a carbon monoxide hazard.
■ Do not attempt to lift the cooktop. Doing so may
damage the gas tubing to the surface burners
resulting in a gas leak and risk of fire.
■ When disabling Lock Control (on some models),
make sure the surface controls are set to the
OFF position. This will prevent unintended gas
flow from the burners.
■ Do not use aluminum foil to cover the grates or
line any part of the cooktop. Doing so may result
in carbon monoxide poisoning, overheating of the
cooktop surfaces, or a potential fire hazard.

SAFETY INFORMATION
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
WARNING OVEN SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
NEVER cover any slots,
holes, or passages in the oven bottom or
cover an entire rack with materials such
as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow
through the oven and may cause carbon
monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings
may also trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
■ Use this appliance for its intended purpose as
described in this owner’s manual.
■ Stand away from the range when opening the
oven door. Hot air or steam which escapes can
cause burns to hands, face and/or eyes.
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup. Grease
in the oven may ignite.
■ Place oven racks in desired location while oven
is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot,
be careful to avoid touching hot surfaces.
■ Pull the oven rack to the stop-lock position when
loading and unloading food from the oven. This
helps prevent burns from touching hot surfaces
of the door and oven walls.
■ Do not leave items such as paper, cooking
utensils or food in the oven when not in use.
Items stored in an oven can ignite.
■ Do not leave items on the cooktop near the oven
vent which is in the center of the backguard.
Items may overheat resulting in a risk of fire or
burns.
■ When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
■ Never broil with door open. Open-door broiling
is not permitted due to overheating of control
knobs.
WARNING SELF-CLEANING OVEN SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
The self-cleaning feature (on some models)
operates the oven at temperatures high enough
to burn away food soils in the oven. Follow these
instructions for safe operation.
■ Do not touch oven surfaces during self-clean
operation. Keep children away from the oven
during self-cleaning. Failure to follow these
instructions may cause burns.
■ Before operating the self-clean cycle, remove
pans, shiny metal oven racks and other utensils
from the oven. Only porcelain-coated oven racks
may be left in the oven. Do not use self-clean to
clean other parts, such as grates.
6
■ Before operating the self-clean cycle, wipe
grease and food soils from the oven. Excessive
amount of grease may ignite leading to smoke
damage to your home.
■ If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions, turn the
oven off and disconnect the power supply. Have
it serviced by a qualified technician.
■ Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial oven
cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any
kind should be used in or around any part of the
oven.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
49-85214
■ The purpose of the broil drawer is to hold hot
cooked foods at serving temperature. Bacteria
will grow very rapidly in food that is between 40
and 140°F. Do not put cold food in broil drawer.
Do not keep food in the broil drawer for more
than 2 hours. Failure to follow these instructions
may result in foodborne illness.
■ Do not leave paper products, plastics, canned
food or combustible materials in the drawer. They
may ignite.
■ Do not touch the heating element or the interior
surface of the drawer. These surfaces may be
hot enough to cause burns.
■ Use care when opening the drawer. Open the
drawer a crack and let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing food. Hot air or
steam that escapes can cause burns to hands,
face and/or eyes.
■ Do not use aluminum foil to line the broil drawer.
Foil is an excellent heat insulator and will trap
heat beneath it. This will upset the performance
of the drawer and potentially cause a fire hazard.

USING THE COOKTOP: Surface Burners
Surface Burners
How to Light a Surface Burner
WARNING
Burners should be operated
only when covered by cookware. Burner flames
not covered by cookware present a risk of fire or
clothing ignition. Never let flames extend beyond the
sides of the cookware. Failure to comply may result
in serious injury.
Make sure all burners are in their correct locations and
fully assembled before attempting to operate any burner.
You will hear a clicking noise—
the sound of the electric spark
igniting the burner. When one
burner is turned to LITE, all
burners will spark. Sparking will
continue as long as the knob
remains at LITE. Once gas is
ignited, turn the knob to adjust
the flame size.
Push the control knob in and
turn it to the LITE position.
Select a burner and find its control knob. Push the knob
in and turn it to the LITE position.
After Lighting a Burner
■ Do not operate the burner for an extended period of
time without cookware on the grate. The finish on the
grate may discolor or chip without cookware to absorb
the heat.
■ Do not attempt to disassemble any burner while
another burner is on. An electric shock may result,
which could cause you to knock over hot cookware.
■ Be sure the burners and grates are cool before you
place your hand, a pot holder or cleaning materials on
them.
Use of the Surface Burners
Your gas rangetop has sealed gas burners. They offer
convenience, cleanability and flexibility for a wide range
of cooking applications.
The smallest burner is the simmer burner. A simmer
burner turned down to LO provides precise cooking
performance for foods such as delicate sauces that
require low heat for a long cooking time.
The extra-large burner is designed to quickly bring large
amounts of liquid to a boil. Some models have a POWER
BOIL™ setting especially designed for use with cookware
with a diameter of 11 inches or larger.
How to Select Flame Size
Watch the flame, not the knob, as you adjust heat. When
rapid heating is desired, the flame size on a burner
should match the size of the cookware you are using.
Flames larger than the bottom of the cookware will not
heat faster and may be hazardous.
These flames are too
large for the pot
10
49-85214
Top-of-Range Cookware
Aluminum: Medium-weight cookware is recommended
because it heats quickly and evenly. Most foods brown
evenly in an aluminum skillet. Use saucepans with tightfitting lids when cooking with minimum amounts of water.
Stainless Steel: This metal alone has poor heating
properties and is usually combined with copper,
aluminum or other metals for improved heat distribution.
Combination metal skillets usually work satisfactorily if
they are used with medium heat as the manufacturer
recommends.
Cast-Iron: If heated slowly, most skillets will give
satisfactory results.
Enamelware: Under some conditions, the enamel of some
cookware may melt. Follow cookware manufacturer’s
recommendations for cooking methods.
Glass: There are two types of glass cookware—those
for oven use only and those for top-of-range cooking
(saucepans, coffee and teapots). Glass conducts heat
very slowly.
Heatproof Glass Ceramic: Can be used for either surface
or oven cooking. It conducts heat very slowly and cools very
slowly. Check cookware manufacturer’s directions to be
sure it can be used on gas ranges.
Stove Top Grills
Do not use an after-market stove top grill on your gas
surface burners. A stove top grill will cause incomplete
combustion resulting in carbon monoxide levels above
allowable standards. This could be hazardous to your
health.
Do not use stove top grills
Using a Wok
USING THE COOKTOP: Surface Burners
Surface Burners (Cont.)
Use only a flat-bottomed wok with a diameter of 14 inches
or less. Make sure the wok bottom sits flat on the grate.
Do not use a wok support ring. Placing the ring over the
burner or grate may cause the burner to work improperly,
resulting in carbon monoxide levels above allowable
standards. This could be hazardous to your health.
Use a flat-bottomed wok.
In Case of a Power Failure
In case of a power failure, you can light the surface
burners on your range with a match. Hold a lit match
to the burner ports, then slowly turn the control knob to
the LITE position. Use extreme caution when lighting
burners this way.
49-85214
Surface burners in use when an electrical power failure
occurs will continue to operate normally. If Lock Control
(on some models) is in use at the time of a power failure,
the surface burners cannot be lit.

Main Oven
Your oven has six rack positions in the main oven.
Recommended rack positions for various types of
foods are provided in the Cooking Guide. Adjusting
rack position is one way to impact cooking results. For
example, if you would prefer darker tops on cakes,
muffins, or cookies, try moving food one rack position
higher. If you find foods are too brown on top try moving
them down next time.
When baking with multiple pans and on multiple racks,
ensure there is sufficient space between pans to allow
air to flow.
Oven Racks
When placing and removing cookware, pull the rack out
to the bump (stop position) on the rack support.
To remove a rack, pull it toward you, tilt the front end up
and pull it out.
To replace, place the curved end of the rack (stop-locks)
onto the oven supports, tilt up the front of the rack and
push the rack in.
Racks may become difficult to slide, especially after a
self-clean. Put some vegetable oil on a soft cloth or
paper towel and rub onto the left and right edges.
USING THE OVEN: Oven Racks and Rack Positions
Oven Racks and Rack Positions
Broil Drawer (on some models)
Always use the broil pan and grid that comes with your
range.
The broil drawer has three broiling positions [A (bottom
of the broil drawer), B (middle), and C (top)]. To broil in
position B or C, slide the pan into the drawer such that
the handles rest on the supports. For broiling in position
A, place the pan directly on the bottom of the broil
drawer.

USING THE OVEN: Cooking Modes / Cookware
Cooking Modes
Your new oven has a variety of cooking modes to help you get the best results. These modes are described below.
Refer to the Cooking Guide section for recommendations for specific foods. Remember, your new oven may perform
differently than the oven it is replacing.
Bake
The bake mode is for baking and roasting. This
mode uses heat only from the lower burner. When
preparing baked goods such as cakes, cookies, and
pastries always preheat the oven first. Follow recipe
recommendations for food placement. If no guidelines are
provided center food in the oven. To use this mode press
the Bake pad, enter a temperature, and then press Start.
Broiling Modes
Always broil with the main oven and broil drawer doors
closed. Monitor food closely while broiling. Use caution
when broiling on upper rack positions as placing food
closer to the broil burner increases smoking, spattering,
and the possibility of fats igniting.
Try broiling foods that you would normally grill. Adjust
rack positions to adjust the intensity of the heat to the
food. Place foods closer to the broil burner when a
seared surface and rare interior is desired. Thicker foods
and foods that need to be cooked through should be
broiled on a rack position farther from the burner or by
using Broil Lo.
Broil Hi
meat and/ or foods you prefer less done on the interior.
To use this mode press the Broil pad once and then
press Start. It is not necessary to preheat when using
this mode.
Broil Lo
The Broil Lo mode uses less intense heat from the upper
burner to cook food thoroughly while also browning the
surface. Use Broil Lo for thicker cuts of meat and/or
foods that you would like cooked all the way through. To
use this mode press the Broil pad twice and then press
Start. It is not necessary to preheat when using this
mode.
Convection Bake Multi Rack
The Convection Bake Multi Rack mode is intended
for baking on multiple racks at the same time. This
mode uses heat from the upper burners along with
air movement from the convection fan to enhance
cooking evenness. Your oven is equipped with Auto
Recipe Conversion, so it is not necessary to convert the
temperature when using this mode. To use this mode
press the Bake Multi Rack pad under Convection,
enter a temperature, and then press Start. Always
preheat when using this mode.
The Broil Hi mode uses intense heat from the upper
burner to sear foods. Use Broil Hi for thinner cuts of
Cookware
Cookware Guidelines
The material, finish, and size of cookware affect baking
performance.
Shiny pans can produce more evenly cooked baked
goods such as cakes and cookies.
Dark, coated and dull pans absorb heat more readily
than light, shiny pans. Pans that absorb heat more
readily can result in a browner, crisper, and thicker crust.
If using dark and coated cookware check food earlier
than minimum cook time. If undesirable results are
obtained with this type of cookware consider reducing
oven temperature by 25º F next time.
Glass and ceramic pans heat slowly but retain heat well.
These types of pans work well for dishes such as pies
and custards.
Air insulated pans heat slowly and can reduce bottom
browning.
Keep cookware clean to promote even heating.
Aluminum Foil
Do not use aluminum foil to line oven bottoms. The foil will trap heat below and upset the performance of the
oven. Foil can melt and permanently damage the oven bottom. Damage from improper use of aluminum foil is not
covered by the product warranty.
Foil may be used to catch spills by placing a sheet on a lower rack, several inches below the food. Do not use more
foil than necessary and never entirely cover an oven rack with aluminum foil. Keep foil at least 1-1/2” from oven walls
to prevent poor heat circulation.

CARE AND CLEANING: Cleaning The Oven
Cleaning The Oven
Be sure electrical power is off and all surfaces are cool before cleaning any part of the oven.
Control Panel and Knobs
Wipe the control panel after each use of the oven with
a damp cloth. For cleaning, use mild soap and water or
a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water. Rinse with clean
water. Polish dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use abrasive cleansers, strong liquid cleansers,
plastic scouring pads or oven cleaners on the control
panel—they will damage the finish.
Do not try to bend knobs by pulling them up or down or
by hanging a towel or other such loads. This can damage
the gas valve shaft.
Not all knobs are interchangeable. To determine the
correct location of a particular knob, examine the back of
the knob. A knob with a label or two stem holes should
be replaced on the front panel first by matching the
shape of the knob holes to the shape of the control panel
stems. The remainder of the knobs having no labels and
only one stem hole can then be replaced on the front
panel anywhere there is a single stem.
Stem
Label
The control knobs may be removed for easier cleaning.
With knobs in the OFF position pull them straight off the
stems.
The knobs can be washed by hand with soap and water
or in a dishwasher.

Oven Exterior and Cooktop Surface
Do not use oven cleaners, abrasive cleansers, strong
liquid cleansers, steel wool, plastic scouring pads, or
cleaning powders on the interior or exterior of the oven.
Clean with a mild soap and water or a 50/50 solution of
vinegar and water. Rinse with clean water and dry with a
soft cloth. When cleaning surfaces, make sure that they
are at room temperature and not in direct sunlight.
If a stain on the door vent trim is persistent, use a mild
abrasive cleaner and a sponge-scrubber for best results.
Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato sauces and
basting liquids containing acids may cause discoloration
and should be wiped up immediately. Let hot surfaces
cool, then clean and rinse.
Stainless Steel Surfaces (on some models)
Do not use a steel wool pad; it will scratch the surface.
To clean the stainless steel surface, use warm sudsy
water or a stainless steel cleaner or polish. Always wipe
the surface in the direction of the grain. Follow the cleaner
instructions for cleaning the stainless steel surface.
To inquire about purchasing cleaning products including
stainless steel appliance cleaner or polish read the
Assistance and Accessories sections at the beginning of
this manual.
Oven Interior
The interior of your new oven can be cleaned manually
or by using the Steam Clean or Self Clean modes.
Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato sauces and
basting liquids containing acids may cause discoloration
and should be wiped up as soon as hot surfaces cool,
then clean and rinse.
Manual Cleaning
Do not use oven cleaners, abrasive cleaners, strong
liquid cleansers, steel wool, scouring pads, or cleaning
powders on the interior of the oven. Clean with a mild
soap and water or 50/50 solution of vinegar and water.
Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft cloth. When
cleaning surfaces, make sure that they are at room
temperature and not in direct sunlight.
18
Steam Clean Mode (on some models)
The Steam Clean feature is intended to use water to
clean light soil from your oven at a lower temperature
than Self Clean.
To use the Steam Clean feature:
1. Start with the oven at room temperature
2. Wipe excess grease and soils from the oven
3. Pour one cup of water onto the bottom of the oven
4. Close and latch the door
5. Press the Steam Clean pad and then press Start.
The oven door will lock. You cannot open the door during
the 30 minute Steam Clean cycle as this will decrease
the cleaning performance. At the end of the Steam
Clean cycle the door will unlock. With a sponge, soak up
remaining water and wipe the moisture-softened soil from
the oven walls and door.
49-85214
Oven Interior (continued)
Self Clean Mode
Read Self-Cleaning Oven Safety Instructions at the
beginning of this manual before using Self Clean Mode.
Self clean uses very high temperatures to clean the
oven interior. The oven door will lock when using this
feature. Before operating the self-clean cycle, pre-wash
inner door and inside window before self-cleaning. Wipe
inner black door before self clean. Remove all items
from the oven other than enameled (dark color) racks.
Shiny or silver racks, the meat probe, and any cookware
or other items should all be removed from the oven
before initiating a self-clean cycle. Close the door. Latch
the door. If the oven is too hot, you will not be able to
slide the latch. Wait until the oven is cool to slide the
latch. Press the Clean pad once and a default self-clean
time is displayed. Press the START pad or use the
number pads to enter any clean time between 3 and 5
hours and press start. For heavily soiled ovens 5 hours
is recommended. The oven will turn off automatically
when the self-clean cycle is complete. The door will stay
locked until the oven has cooled down. After the oven
has cooled down wipe any ash out of the oven.
Oven Racks
All oven racks may be cleaned by hand with an abrasive
cleaner or steel wool. Black porcelain-coated oven racks
may remain in the oven during the self-cleaning cycle
without being damaged. If nickel-plated oven racks
remain in the oven during the self-cleaning cycle, they
will lose their luster and become hard to slide. It will be
necessary to grease all oven rack side edges with a light
coating of vegetable oil after cleaning them by hand or in
the oven. This will help maintain the ease of sliding the
racks in and out of the oven.
Cleaning The Cooktop
Removal of Surface Burners for Cleaning
Turn all controls OFF. Allow cooktop to cool before removing grates and burner parts. When removing the burner caps
and heads, remember their size and location. Replace them in the same location after cleaning.

hard or it could be damaged.
Electrode
NOTE: Do not use steel wool or scouring powders to
clean the burner parts as these may clog the parts.
Never wash burner heads in your dishwasher as
dishwasher detergents will discolor your burners.
The ports in the burner heads must be kept clean at all
times for an even, unhampered flame.
Clogged or dirty burner ports or electrodes will not allow
the burner to operate properly.
Round hole in
burner head must
be kept clear
The electrode of the spark igniter is exposed
when the burner head is removed. When one
burner is turned to LITE, all the burners spark.
Do not attempt to disassemble or clean around
any burner while another burner is on. An electric
shock may result, which could cause you to
knock over hot cookware.
For proper ignition, make sure the small hole in the notch
that fits over the electrode is kept open. A sewing needle
or wire twist-tie works well to unclog it
After cleaning

My oven door glass
appears to be
"tinted" or have a
"rainbow" color. Is
this defective?
No. The inner oven glass is coated with
a heat barrier to reflect the heat back
into the oven to prevent heat loss and
keep the outer door cool while baking.
This is normal. Under certain light or angles, you may
see this tint or rainbow color.
