Setting Proper Burner Flame Size
Cookware Material Types
The most popular materials available are:
Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the cooking
utensil. A higher flame wastes energy and increases your risk of
being burned by the flame (Figure 4).
•
Aluminum - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food
will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware
resists staining and pitting).
The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. A
good flame is clear, blue and hardly visible in a well-lighted
room. Each cone of flame should be steady and sharp. Adjust
or clean burner if flame is yellow-orange.
•
Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily.
•
Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking
results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
•
Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor; however, it will retain
heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is
reached.
•
Porcelain - enamel on metal - Heating characteristics will
vary depending on base material.
•
Glass - Slow heat conductor.

How to set flame for efficient cooking
Using Proper Cookware
Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper
shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on the cooktop
when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders,
towels or wooden spoons could catch fire if placed too close to
the range cooktop.
Do not place aluminum foil, or any material that can melt on the
cooktop. If these items melt they may damage the cooktop.
For best cooking results, cookware should have flat bottoms
that rest level on the burner grate. Before using cookware,
check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the
cookware (Figure 5).
INCORRECT
• Curved and warped pan
bottoms.
• Flat bottom and straight
sides.
• Tight fitting lids.
• Weight of handle does
not tilt pan. Pan is well
balanced.
• Pan sizes match the
amount of food to be
prepared.
• Made of material that
conducts heat well.
• Easy to clean.
Figure 6:
• Pan overhangs unit by
more than 1” (2.5 cm).
• Heavy handle tilts pan.
• Flame extends beyond unit.
Cookware recommendations
Please note: The size and type of utensil used and the amount
and type of food being cooked will influence the burner flame
setting needed for best cooking results.
Specialty pans such as lobster pots, griddles and pressure
cookers may be used but must conform to the above recommended cookware requirements.
IMPORTANT! Never place or straddle a cooking utensil over
two different surface cooking areas heating at the same time.
This can cause uneven heating results.
Figure 5:
Check for flat bottom cookware

Before Setting Surface Controls
Using a Griddle
A griddle (optional) is intended for direct food cooking and can be used on both sides of the cooktop. Do not use pans or other
cookware on the griddle. Doing so could damage the finish. With the griddle in position over the burners, set the griddle on top of
the grates.
A griddle can be purchased as an accessory by ordering online at www.electrolux-store.com/cooking-accessories.html.
Always place the griddle on the grate before lighting the burner. Be sure the griddle is positioned correctly and stable before use
to prevent hot spills and possible burns.
Always use potholders to remove the griddle from the grate. Allow the griddle to cool before removing. Do not set a hot griddle on
surfaces that cannot withstand high heat, such as counter tops.

Using a Wok
Figure 7:
Use extra care when setting the wok stand onto the burner grates and test stability before using
IMPORTANT! Do not use a wok if it is equipped with a metal ring that extends beyond the burner grates. This ring traps heat,
and the surface unit and cooktop surface could be damaged as a result.
•
Woks with flat bottoms suitable for use on your cooktop are available in most cookware or hardware stores.
•
Round bottomed woks (with a support ring that does not extend beyond the burner grates) may also be used. The metal ring
was designed to support the wok safely when it is filled with large amounts of liquids (soup making) or fat (frying).
•
Wire trivets: Do not use wire trivets. Cookware bottoms must be in direct contact with the grates.
Setting Surface Burners
13
SETTING SURFACE BURNERS
Your gas appliance is equipped with different sized surface
burners (Figure 8). The ability to heat food quicker and in larger
volumes increases as the burner size increases. It is important
to select cookware that is suitable for the amount and type of
food being prepared.
•
The smaller simmer burner is best suited for simmering
delicate sauces, etc.
•
Use standard size burners for most surface cooking
needs.
•
Larger power burners are recommended for bringing large
quantities of liquid to temperature and when preparing
larger quantities of food.
To set surface burners:
1.
Place cooking utensil on center of surface burner grate. Be
sure the cooking utensil sets stable on the burner grate.
2.
Push the desired surface control knob in and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF position and rotate the knob to the
icon (Figure 9). Visually check that the burner has lit.
Once the burner has a flame, turn the control knob counterclockwise to the desired flame size. Use the control markings
and adjust the flame as needed.
hi
Figure 9:
Figure 8:
Typical burner sizes
Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper
shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on the cooktop
when in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels
or wooden spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the
range cooktop. Do not place aluminum foil, or any material that
can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt they may
permanently damage the cooktop surface.
IMPORTANT!
•
Do not cook with the surface control knob left in the Lite
position. The electronic ignitor will continue to spark if the
control knob setting remains in the
position.
•
When setting any surface control knob to the
position,
all electronic surface ignitors will spark at the same time.
However, only the surface burner you are setting will ignite.
•
Never place or straddle a cooking utensil over two different
surface cooking areas at the same time, unless the
cookware was designed for that purpose (such as griddles).
•
In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface
burners can be lit manually. Use caution when lighting
surface burners manually. To light a surface burner, hold a
lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn the surface
control knob to Lite. After burner lights push in and turn
knob to desired setting.
•
When operating the oven, it is possible for residual heat
from the oven to build-up and over time to eventually
transfer to the surface control knobs located directly above
the oven door.
Correct way to set burners
For most cooking:
Start on the highest setting and then turn to a lower setting to
complete the process. Use the recommendations below as a
guide for determining proper flame size for various types of
cooking (Table 1 ).
For deep fat frying:
Use a thermometer and adjust the surface 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 under cooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much
food at once as the food will neither brown or cook properly.

BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Oven Vent Location
Oven Racks
The oven vent is located at the rear of the cooktop. When the
oven is in use, warm air passes through this vent for proper air
circulation. Steam or moisture may appear near the oven vent.
This is normal. Do not block this vent.
Your appliance may come with any of the following rack types
(See Figure 11 for the following descriptions):
•
Flat handle oven racks are used for most cooking needs
and can be placed in most oven rack positions.
IMPORTANT! Some models are equipped with a cooling fan
that runs during the cooking process to cool internal electronic
components. It is normal for this fan to continue to run for an
extended period of time, even when the oven is off.
•
The fully extendable Luxury-Glide™ oven rack allows the
user to effortlessly extend food away from the oven. It has
glide tracks that allow the rack to be pulled away from the
oven without rubbing the sides of the oven wall.
•
For ease of removal, racks should not be placed in adjacent
rack positions.

Figure 10: Oven vent location
Protective liners — Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom or
any other parts of the range with aluminum foil. Doing so will alter
heat distribution, produce poor baking results, and may cause
permanent damage to the oven interior. During self clean
temperatures the oven will be hot enough to melt foil.
Use aluminum foil only as recommended in this manual.
Improper installation or use of these liners may result in risk of
electric shock or fire.
Figure 11: Rack types
Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food or
adjusting the oven racks. Wait until the oven has completely
cooled if possible. Oven racks may be very hot and may cause
burns.
Remove all oven racks and rack ladders before starting a self
clean cycle. If oven racks are left inside the oven during a
cleaning cycle, the slide ability of the Luxury-Glide™ oven racks
may be damaged and all of the oven racks will lose their shiny
finish. Clean oven racks according to the instructions provided in
the “Care and Cleaning” section.

Arranging, Removing, and Replacing Oven Racks
IMPORTANT! Remove all oven racks, rack ladders, and any other accessories from the oven before starting a self clean
cycle.
•
To arrange - Always arrange the oven racks when the oven is cool (prior to operating the oven).
•
To remove - pull the oven rack straight forward until it reaches the stop position. Lift up front of oven rack slightly and slide
out. For ease of removal, racks should not be placed in adjacent rack positions.
•
To replace - place the oven rack on the rack guides on the oven walls. Tilt the front of the rack upward slightly and slide the
oven rack back into place.
•
To prevent possible damage to the oven, do not attempt to close the oven door until all oven racks are fully positioned inside
the oven cavity.
Installing Oven (Ladder) Rack Supports
IMPORTANT! Always install oven rack support before turning on the oven (when the oven is cool).
To aid installation of the porcelain oven rack supports, apply a thin layer of cooking oil to all the prongs of the supports shown
below.
Top prong inserts
into oven piercing
Bottom prong inserts
into piercing to make
support flush with
oven wall
To install oven rack supports:
1.
Hold the oven rack support at a slight angle and insert prongs into the holes at the top of the oven cavity (Arrow 1).
2.
Lift the rack into the top holes, aligning the bottom prongs with the bottom holes (Arrow 2).
3.
Once the upper prongs are in place, hold the oven rack support flush with the oven side and insert the bottom prongs into
the bottom holes (Arrow 3).
4.
Slide the bottom prongs down into the lower holes. Some force may be required to set the rack into place (Arrow 4).
Note: To remove the ladder rack support for a self-clean cycle, reverse the order used when installing the ladder rack
supports.

Luxury Glide™ oven racks
IMPORTANT! Remove all oven racks before starting a self clean cycle. If oven racks are left inside the oven during a
cleaning cycle, the slide ability of the Luxury-Glide™ oven racks may be damaged and all of the oven racks will lose their
shiny finish. Clean oven racks according to the instructions provided in the Care and Cleaning section.
The fully extendable Luxury Glide™ rack makes food preparation easier. This oven rack has glide tracks that allow the
rack to be pulled away from the oven without rubbing the sides of the oven wall.
The Luxury Glide™ rack installs like all other oven racks. Before sliding the rack all the way in, lift the back of the rack
slightly to set the rack past the glide stop position. Be sure to slide the rack all the way in so that the back of the rack
stops by touching the vertical support of the ladder rack.
The glide portion of the rack can be easily pulled in and out in this position while the frame of the rack remains locked into
the ladder supports. This allows bakeware to remain in place on the Luxury Glide™ rack and slide out easily to check
food items without removing them from the oven.

Bake
Use the bake function to cook most food items with normal
cooking temperatures.The following oven temperature settings
apply to Bake: 170°F to 500ºF.
IMPORTANT! For batter and dough-based baked goods such
as cakes, pastries, and breads, use the convection bake
function for best results. Radiant baking (this page) is best for
baking layer cakes using two racks.
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when working with a hot
oven. When cooking, the oven interior, oven racks and cooktop
will become hot enough to cause burns.
Do not cook foods directly on the oven bottom. To avoid
damaging the oven interior and surfaces, always cook foods in
the oven using cookware positioned on an oven rack.
For best results:
•
Leave oven light off while baking.
•
Fully preheat the oven before baking items like cookies,
cakes, biscuits, or breads.
•
When using a single rack for baking use glide rack position
4 or flat rack in position 5.
•
For best results when baking cakes using 2 racks, place
cookware on oven rack positions 2 (glide rack) or 3 (flat
rack) or and 6 (glide rack) or 7 (flat rack). (Figure 12)
•
Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) space between the food
items to ensure proper circulation (Figure 12).
•
Dark or dull pans and glass absorb more heat than shiny
bakeware resulting in dark or over browning of foods. To
prevent this it may be necessary to reduce the oven temperature or cook time to prevent over browning of some
foods. Shiny pans are recommended for cakes, cookies
and muffins.
Figure 13: Pan spacing
IMPORTANT! The oven Bake light will blink and the oven will
not turn on if the temperature dial is set higher than 500ºF
(260ºC).
On gas models the convection fan will begin to rotate 6 minutes
after Bake first starts. This is normal. The fan will turn off when
the oven reaches the set temperature and the control will beep
once to indicate the oven is ready. While baking, the oven will
continue to cycle on and off to maintain the preset temperature.
To set the oven for bake at 350ºF (177ºC):

Convection Bake
Convection bake uses a fan to circulate the oven heat throughout the oven cavity. The improved heat distribution allows for
even cooking results. (Figure 15). Cooking with multiple racks
may slightly increase cook times for some food types, but the
overall result will be time saved.The fan will turn on 6 minutes
after the oven begins heating.
Benefits of convection bake:
•
Multiple oven rack baking.
•
Some foods cook more evenly.
For best results:
•
Leave oven light off while baking.
•
Fully preheat the oven before baking items like cookies,
cakes, biscuits, and breads.
•
When using two racks for layer cakes, use glide racks in
rack positions 5 and 2, or flat racks in positions 3 and 6
(Figure 15). Position cookware as shown in Figure 16.
•
Use the convection bake feature for baking cookies and
biscuits on two racks and use glide racks on positions 1
and 5, or flat racks on positions 2 and 6.
•
Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) space between bakeware for
proper air circulation.
•
Bake items such as cookies and biscuits on pans with no
sides or very low sides to allow heated air to circulate
around the food. Food items baked on pans with a dark
finish will cook faster.

Convection Roast
Convection roast combines a cook cycle with the convection fan
and element to rapidly roast meats and poultry. Heated air circulates around the meat sealing in juices and flavors.
Meats cooked with this feature are crispy and brown on the
outside while staying moist inside. Preheating for convection
roast will not be necessary for most meats and poultry.
See Table 3, “Convection roasting temperature and time recommendations,”
If an oven fire occurs, turn the oven off and do not open the door.
Opening the door will feed oxygen to the fire. If the fire continues,
you can throw baking soda on the fire or use a Class B/C fire extinguisher. Do not put water or flour on the fire. Flour can be explosive and water can cause a grease fire to spread possibly

Convection Roasting tips:
•
Preheating for convection roast is not necessary.
•
Roast food on the lowest rack of the oven.
•
When cooking meats use broiler pan and insert. The broiler pan will catch grease spills and the insert helps
prevent grease splatters.
•
Convection roast cooks faster, you can reduce cook times as much as 25% from the recommended recipe. If
needed, increase cook time until the desired doneness is obtained.
•
Carefully follow your recipe’s temperature and time recommendations or refer to the convection roast recommendations for additional information.
•
Do not cover foods when dry roasting - covering will prevent the meat from browning properly.

Cleaning the Oven
A self cleaning oven automatically cleans itself by using much
higher temperatures than those used for cooking. The self clean
feature eliminates soils completely or reduces them to a fine
powdered ash that, when the oven has cooled, can be wiped
away easily with a damp cloth.
The self clean function provides a default 3 hour clean time setting for self cleaning. When the oven is set to run a self-clean
cycle, the motor door lock will begin locking the oven door.
IMPORTANT! Do not open the oven door while the lock motor
is running or when any locking indicators or displays are
showing. The oven door is completely locked in about 15
seconds.
Completely remove all oven racks, rack ladders, and accessories from the oven interior to avoid possible damage. If the oven
racks are not removed they may discolor and become difficult to
move.
Do not touch the oven during the self clean cycle. Keep children
away from the oven during the self clean cycle. Failure to follow
these instructions can result in burns.
IMPORTANT! Read and adhere to the following precautions before starting self clean:
•
Completely remove all items from the oven and cooktop
including food, cookware, utensils, plastic, and any aluminum foil. Aluminum foil will not withstand high temperatures
generated during the self clean cycle.
•
Do not leave small children unattended near the appliance.
During self clean, the range will become very hot to the
touch.
•
Be sure the oven vent is clear.
•
Be sure oven light shield is in place.
•
Remove any excess spills or loose debris. Spills on the
oven bottom should be wiped up and removed before starting self clean. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth.
Large food spill overs can cause heavy smoke or a fire during self clean.
•
Do not allow foods that have a high sugar or acid content
(such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie
filling) to remain on surfaces. They may leave a dull spot
even after self cleaning.
•
Do not clean the oven door gasket (Figure 21). Do not use
any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so
may damage the gasket. The woven material of the oven
door is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not
to rub, damage or remove the door gasket.
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.
Do not line the oven walls, oven racks, oven bottom or any other
part of the range with aluminum foil. Doing so will stop heat distribution, produce poor baking results and may cause permanent
damage to the oven interior. Aluminum foil will melt to a hot oven
surface during self clean.
Do not spray oven cleaners or protective coatings in or around
any part of the oven interior.
Figure 21: Areas of oven door to clean with caution
The oven may appear to have cooled after use. The elements
may still be hot and burns may occur if these elements are
touched before they have cooled.
•
Do not use commercial oven cleaners or protective
coatings of any kind inside oven. Residue from oven
cleaners may damage the porcelain during the next self
clean cycle.
The Luxury Glide™ oven rack must be removed before starting
self clean to avoid damaging the glide ability of the rack. The
Clean and -Remove Racks indicator lights will flash as a
reminder to remove the racks before starting a self clean cycle.
Refer to “Oven Vent Location” on page 14 for instructions for
removing and replacing all racks.
•
Clean any soil from the oven exterior. Clean using soap and
water before starting a self clean cycle. If soils are not
removed, they may burn on due to the high temperature
during self clean.
Do not force the oven door open when self clean is active. This
can damage the automatic door-locking system. The door will
not unlock until the oven has sufficiently cooled. Use caution
when opening the door after self clean cycle is complete; the
oven may still be very hot.

To start a clean cycle:
To start clean after cancelling:
All oven racks, rack ladders, and accessories must be removed
from the oven interior to avoid possible damage. If the oven
racks are not removed they may discolor.
If self clean was cancelled shortly after being started, and the
oven interior did not reach high self clean temperatures, the
next clean cycle may be set as soon as the oven door unlocks
from the cancelled clean cycle.
To restart a fresh clean cycle after a power outage:
The Luxury Glide™ oven rack must be removed before starting
self clean to avoid damaging the glide ability of the rack. The
Clean and Remove Racks indicator lights will flash as a
reminder to remove the racks before starting a self clean cycle.
Refer to “Oven Vent Location” on page 14 for instructions for

General Cleaning
Cleaning the Glass Cooktop
Refer to the table at the beginning of this chapter for more
detailed information about cleaning specific parts of the range.
Before manually cleaning any part of the range, be sure all
controls are turned off and the range is cool. The range may be
hot and can cause burns.
It is not recommended to use ammonia when cleaning the oven.
However, if ammonia is used, the oven must be rinsed thoroughly before operating the oven. Provide adequate ventilation.
To avoid possible burns do not attempt any of the cleaning
instructions provided below before turning off all surface
burners and allow them to cool.
Your cooktop is glass with gas sealed burners. To clean
the glass portion of the cooktop follow these directions.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of cooktop cleaning cream directly to
the glass part of the cooktop. Use a clean paper towel to
clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop
is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue. Do not use the
towel you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.
For heavy, burned on soil:
BLEACH
ABRASIVE
CL
EANERS
AMMONIA
Figure 24: Cleaning agents to avoid
Apply a few drops of cooktop cleaning cream directly to
the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a non-abrasive
cleaning tool, applying pressure as needed. Do not use
the pad you use to clean the cooktop for any other
purpose. If soils remain, carefully scrape soils with a
metal razor blade scraper, holding scraper at a 30 degree
angle to the surface (Figure 26). Remove loosened soils
with cooktop cleaning cream and buff surface clean.
Aluminum Foil, Aluminum Utensils, and Oven
Liners
Never cover any slots, holes, or passages in the oven bottom or
cover an entire oven 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 trap heat,
causing a fire hazard.
Protective liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven
bottom. The high heat of the oven can melt these materials to the
oven cavity and ruin the oven. These types of materials can also
reduce the effectiveness of the air circulation in the oven and
produce poor baking results. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may
result in risk of electric shock or fire.
•
Aluminum foil - Use of aluminum foil on a hot cooktop can
damage the cooktop. Do not use thin aluminum cooking
utensils or allow aluminum foil to touch the surface burners
under any circumstances.
•
Aluminum utensils - The melting point of aluminum is
much lower than that of other metals. If aluminum pans are
allowed to boil dry when using the cooktop, the utensil will
be damaged or destroyed.
•
Oven racks - Do not use aluminum foil to cover the oven
racks. During self clean the oven temperature can become
hot enough to melt aluminum cooking utensils or aluminum
foil and could result in permanent damage to the oven
interior and porcelain finish.
