damage when using the range, follow basic precautions,
including
WARNING: If the information in this manual is not followed exactly,
a fire or explosion may result causing property damage, personal
injury or death.
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.
General
l
l
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
l
l
l
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 store things children might want
above the range. Children could be burned or
injured while climbing on it.

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
l
When using the cooktop
l
l
l
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 may become hot
enough to cause burns: such as, the oven
vent opening, the surface near the vent
opening, the cooktop, the oven door and
window.
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.
. Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp
potholders 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. It could catch on fire.
l Keep range vents unobstructed.
l Do not heat unopened containers. They
could explode. The hot contents could cause
burns and container particles could cause
injury.
l
4
Do not store flammable materials on or near
the range. The fumes can create an explosion andlor fire hazard.
Do not use the oven for storage.
Never use a match or other flame to look for
a gas leak. Explosion and injury could result.
Know where your main gas shutoff valve is
located.
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 bum you. Pan
size is especially important in deep fat frying.
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
cooktops without breakfng due to the sudden
change in temperature.
Never leave surface burners unattended at
high heat settings. A boilover could result and
cause smoking and greasy spillovers that
may ignite.
Turn pan handles inward, but not over other
surface burners. This will help reduce the
chance of bums, igniting of flammable
materials, and spills due to bumping of the
pan.
Do not use decorative covers or trivets over
the surface burners.
When using the oven
l
l
Always position the oven rack(s) in desired
location while oven is cool.
Use care when opening oven door. Let hot air
or steam escape before removing or replacing food.
Grease
l
Care and cleaning
Grease is flammable. Do not allow grease to
collect around cooktop or in vents. Wipe
spillovers immediately.
l
l
Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick
up a flaming pan. Smother flaming pan by
covering with a well-f&ted 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.
l
l
l
l
Do not use oven cleaners in continuouscleaning oven model. No commercial oven
cleaner or oven liner protective coating of
any kind should be used in or around any

Burn, Fire, Explosion and
Product Damage Hazard
Burner flame should not extend beyond the
edge of the cooking utensil. The flame can
burn you and cause poor cooking results.
Be sure all control knobs are turned to OFF
when you are not cooking. Someone could
be burned or a fire could start if a burner is
accidentally left ON.
If the flame should go out while cooking, or
if there is a strong gas odor, turn the
burners OFF. Wait five minutes for the gas
odor to disappear before relighting burner.
lf gas odor is still present, see safety note
on page 3. Failure to follow these precautions could result in explosion or fire.
Do not leave an empty utensil, or one which
has boiled dry, on a hot surface burner. The
utensil can overheat and may damage the
utensil or cooking product.
Cookware
tips
There is no one brand of cooking utensil that is
best for all people. Knowing something about pan
materials and construction will help you select the
correct cooking utensils for your needs.
l NOTE: For best resukr
and greater fuel
efficiency, use only flat-bottomed utensils that
make good contact with the surface burners.
Utensils with rounded, warped, ridged (porcelain enamel-ware) or dented bottoms could
cause severe overheating, which damages the
utensil andlor surface burner.
Woks, canners and teakettles with flat
bottoms suitable for use on your cooktop are
now available in most stores that sell
housewares.
l The pan should have straight sides and a tightfifing lid.
l Choose medium to heavy gauge (thickness)
pans that are fairly lightweight.
l The pan material (metal or glass) affects how
fast heat transfers from the surface burner
through the pan material and how evenly heat
spreads over the pan bottom. Choose pans that
provide the best cooking results.
l Handles should be made of a sturdy, heatresistant material and be securely attached to
the pan.
l Pans should be easy to clean. Check to be
sure there are no crevices, rough edges or
areas where food migM collect.
l Be sure pans do not tip, whether they are full
or empty.
l Uee utensils
only as they were intended to be
used. Follow pan instructions. This is very
important for glass cookware because some
should be used only in the oven. Other pans
are marked as flameware and may be used on
the surface burners.
Home
canning
information
The large diameter of most water-bath or
pressure canners combined with high heat
settings for long periods of time can cause
damage to the cooktop.
To protect your range:
l For beet results, UM a canner which can be
centered over the surface burner.
l Do not place canner on two surface burners at
the same time. Too much heat will build up and
will damage the cooktop.
l Start with hot water. This reduces the time the
control is set on high. Reduce heat setting to
lowest position needed to keep water boiling.
Positioning
racks
and pans
For baking/roasting with one reck, place the
rack so the top of the food will be centered in the
oven.

Energy
saving
tips
Although the energy used for cooking is usually
a very small percentage of the total energy used
in the home, cooking energy can be used eff iciently. Here are some tips to help you save
energy when using your cooking product.
l Use pans with flat bottoms, straight sides and
tight-fitting lids.
l Cook with a minimum of liquid or fat to help
shorten cooking time.
l Preheat pans only when recommended and for
the shortest time possible.
l Start food on higher heat settings, then set
surface burner control on low or off to finish
cooking. Use retained heat for cooking when
possible.
l Use the more efficient surface burners instead
of the oven when possible.
The oven vent
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven
through a vent located in lower part of backguard.
The vent is needed for air circulation. Do not
block the vent. Poor baking/roasting will result.
NOTE: Never store plastics, paper or other items
that could melt or bum near the oven vent, or any
of the surface burners.
Burn Hazard
When the oven is ON, pans and pan handles
left near the oven vent can become hot
enough to burn the user and to melt plastics.
Use potholders to move pans.
14
l
l
l
l
l
l
Turn on the surface burner only after placing
filled pan on the burner grate.
“Oven peeking” may cause heat loss, longer
cooking times and unsatisfactory baking
results. Rely on your timer to keep track of the
cooking time.
Bake cakes, pies or cookies when oven is
warm. Best time is after a meal has been
cooked in it.
Preheat the oven no longer than necessary.
Plan your meals for the most efficient use of
the range. When using the oven to cook one
food, try to cook the rest of the meal in it also.
Do not preheat when broiling, roasting or
cooking items such as casseroles.
The anti-tip
bracket
The range will not tip during normal use. However, tipping can occur if you apply too much
force or weight to the open door without the
anti-tip bracket properly secured.
To verify the anti-tip bracket is engaged:
l Look to see if the anti-tip bracket is attached
with screws to the wall behind the backguard.
l Make sure the cable tether on the back of the
range is secured by the two hooks on the
bracket.
l See Installation Instructions for further details.

Your range is designed for ease of care. You can
do most cleaning with items found around your
home. Cleaning your range whenever spills or
soiling occurs will help to keep it looking and
operating like new.
Surface
burner
grates
1. Make sure all surface burners are off and the
surrounding parts are cool.
2. Lift off the surface burner grates.
3. Wash the grates with warm, soapy water or in
a dishwasher. Use a nonabrasive, plastic
scrubbing pad for cooked-on foods. Rinse and
dry well.
4. Replace burner grates.
16
Burn, Electrical Shock, Fire and
Explosion Hazard
l Make sure all controls are OFF and the
1 range is cool before cleaning.
l For continuous-cleaning
ovens, do not use
oven cleaners, bleach or rust removers.
l Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and
ventilation air.
Failure to follow these guidelines could result
in burns, electrical shock, fire or explosion.
Surface
burners
and cooktop
The range and burner box areas are specially
designed to make cleaning easier. Because the
four burners are sealed, cleanups are easy and
convenient.
To clean the cooktop, wipe with a damp
sponge and dry.
Product Damage Hazard
Do not remove the cooktop.
Doing so could result in product damage.
Cleaning
areas
the contoured
well
The contoured well is a recessed area located
around each burner. If spills occur in the contoured well section, blot up spill with a paper
towel. Wipe with a clean, damp sponge and dry.
When cleaning the cooktop area or around
the burner base, use care to prevent damage to
the ignitor. If a cleaning utensil should catch the
ignitor, it could damage or break the ignitor. If the
ignitor is damaged or broken, the surface burner
will not light. When cleaning the cooktop, leave
the burner cap in place to protect the ignitor from
possible damage.
Cleaning
the burners
The burner caps should be routinely removed and
cleaned. Always clean the burner caps after a
spillover. Keeping the burner caps clean will
prevent improper ignition and an uneven flame.
To clean, pull the burner cap straight up from
the burner base. Remove the burner pan.
(Burner pan must be replaced over burner base
before replacing burner cap. Do not operate
burners without burner pan in place.) Clean
burner cap and burner pan with warm, soapy
water and a sponge. You can also clean with a
nonabrasive scrubbing pad or cleanser. Do not
clean burner cap or burner pan in a dishwasher
or self-cleaning oven.
For proper flow of gas and ignition of the
burner, DO NOT ALLOW SPILLS, FOOD,
CLEANING AGENTS OR ANY OTHER MATERIAL TO ENTER THE GAS TUBE OPENING. If
the opening or the orifice, located inside the
opening, becomes soiled or clogged, use a cotton
swab or a paper towel to clean the area.
area
tgnitor /

Gas must flow freely through the small hole in the
brass orifice for the burner to light properly. This
area must be free of any soil and be kept
protected from boilovers or spillovers. ALWAYS
keep the burner caps in place whenever a
surface burner is in use.
After cleaning the gao tube opening, replace
the burner cap and burner pan.
Occasionally check the burner flames for
proper size and shape as shown. A good flame is
blue in color. If flames lii off ports, are yellow, or
are noisy when turned off. you may need to clean
the burners. If port8 are clogged, clean with a
straight pin. Do not enlarge or distort port. Do not
use a wooden toothpick. lf adjustment is
needed, call a qualified technician for service.
To replace burner cap, make sure cap is
properly aligned and leveled. Find the recessed
locating tabs on the burner cap (see illustration)
and place cap over the white ignitor in the burner
base.
Turn the burner on to determine if it will light. If
the burner does not light after cleaning,
contact an authorized WhirlpooP service
technician. Do not service the sealed burner
