IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
Protective Liners – Do not use aluminum foil to line surface
unit drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as suggested in
the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result
in a risk of electric shock, or fire.
■ Glazed Cooking Utensils – Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for range-top service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature.
■ Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend
Over Adjacent Surface Units – To reduce the risk of burns,
ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to
unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a
utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and
does not extend over adjacent surface units.
■ Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements – Heating
elements should never be immersed in water.
■ Do Not Cook on Broken Cooktop – If cooktop should
break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the
broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact
a qualified technician immediately.
■ Clean Cooktop With Caution – If a wet sponge or cloth is
used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to
avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
■ Use Care When Opening Door – Let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
■ Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers – Build-up of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.
■ Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.
■ Placement of Oven Racks – Always place oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved
while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating
element in oven.
■ DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR
SURFACES OF OVEN – Heating elements may be hot even
though they are dark in color. 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 heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until
they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the
appliance may become hot enough to cause burns – among
these surfaces are oven vent openings and surfaces near
these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors.
For self-cleaning ranges –
■ Do Not Clean 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 commercial oven cleaner
or oven liner protective coating of any kind should be used
in or around any part of the oven.
■ Clean Only Parts Listed in Manual.
■ Before Self-Cleaning the Oven – Remove broiler pan and
other utensils.
For units with ventilating hood –
■ Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently – Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.
■ When flambeing foods under the hood, turn the fan on.
■
injury to persons, or damage when using the range, follow
basic precautions, including the following:
■ WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF
THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED BY
PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP DEVICES. TO CHECK
IF THE DEVICES ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE
RANGE FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET
SECURELY ATTACHED TO FLOOR OR WALL, AND
SLIDE RANGE BACK SO REAR RANGE FOOT IS
UNDER ANTI-TIP BRACKET.
■ CAUTION: Do not store items of interest to children in
cabinets above a range or on the backguard of a range –
children climbing on the range to reach items could be
seriously injured.
■ Proper Installation – Be sure the range is properly installed
and grounded by a qualified technician.
■ Never Use the Range for Warming or Heating the Room.
■ Do Not Leave Children Alone – Children should not be left
alone or unattended in area where the range is in use.
They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of
the range.
■ Wear Proper Apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn while using the range.
■ User Servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of the
range unless specifically recommended in the manual. All
other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
■ Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should
not be stored in an oven or near surface units.
■ Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires – Smother fire or flame
or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
■ Use Only Dry Potholders – Moist or damp potholders on
hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let
potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel
or other bulky cloth.
■ DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR
UNITS – Surface units may be hot even though they are
dark in color. Areas near surface units may become hot
enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch,
or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface
units or areas near units until they have had sufficient time
to cool. Among those areas are the cooktop and surfaces
facing the cooktop.
■ Use Proper Pan Size – The range is equipped with one or
more surface units of different size. Select utensils having
flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating
element. The use of undersized utensils will expose a
portion of the heating element to direct contact and may
result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to
burner will also improve efficiency.
■ Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat
Settings – Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite.
■ Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place –
Absence of these pans or bowls during cooking may
subject wiring or components underneath to damage.

COOKTOP USE
WARNING
■■
Avoid storing jars or cans above the cooktop. Dropping
a heavy or hard object onto the cooktop could crack the
cooktop.
■■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not leave a hot lid on
the cooktop. As the cooktop cools, air can become trapped
between the lid and the cooktop, and the ceramic glass could
break when the lid is removed.
■■
For foods containing sugar in any form, clean up all spills and
soils as soon as possible. Allow the cooktop to cool down
slightly. Then, while wearing oven mitts, remove the spills
using a scraper while the surface is still warm. If sugary spills
are allowed to cool down, they can adhere to the cooktop
and can cause pitting and permanent marks.
■■
To avoid scratches, do not slide cookware or bakeware
across the cooktop. Aluminum or copper bottoms and rough
finishes on cookware or bakeware could leave scratches or
marks on the cooktop.
■■
Do not cook popcorn in prepackaged aluminum containers
on the cooktop. They could leave aluminum marks that
cannot be removed completely.
■■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not allow objects that
could melt, such as plastic or aluminum foil, to touch any part
of the entire cooktop.
■■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not use the cooktop as a
cutting board.
■■
Use cookware about the same size as the surface cooking
area. Cookware should not extend more than ½" (1.3 cm)
outside the area.
Fire Hazard
Turn off all controls when done cooking.
Failure to do so can result in death or fire.
The control knobs can be set to anywhere between HI and LO.
Push in and turn to setting.
REMEMBER: When range is in use, the entire cooktop area
may become hot.
B
Ceramic Glass
A
The surface cooking area will glow red when an element is on.
Some parts of the surface cooking area may not glow red when
an element is on. This is normal operation. It will also randomly
cycle off and back on again, even while on Hi, to keep the
cooktop from extreme temperatures.
It is normal for the surface of light colored ceramic glass to
appear to change color when surface cooking areas are hot. As
the glass cools, it will return to its original color.
Clean the cooktop after each use to help avoid scratches, pitting,
abrasions and to condition the glass surface. Ceramic glass
cooktop cleaner and a cooktop scraper are also recommended
for stubborn soils. Do not use abrasive cleaners, cleaning pads or
harsh chemicals for cleaning. The Cooktop Care Kit Part Number
31605 contains all of the items needed to clean and condition
your ceramic glass cooktop. Refer to the “Range Care” section
for additional information.
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the cooktop
surface and to make soils easier to remove, clean the cooktop
after each use to remove all soils.

Cookware
IMPORTANT: Do not leave empty cookware on a hot surface
cooking area, element or surface burner.
Ideal cookware should have a flat bottom, straight sides and a
well-fitting lid, and the material should be of medium-to-heavy
thickness.
Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop. Aluminum and copper may be used as a core or base in cookware. However,
when used as a base they can leave permanent marks on the
surfaces.
Cookware material is a factor in how quickly and evenly heat
is transferred, which affects cooking results. A nonstick finish
has the same characteristics as its base material. For example,
aluminum cookware with a nonstick finish will take on the
properties of aluminum.
Cookware with nonstick surfaces should not be used under the broiler.
Check for flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler across
the bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the ruler, no space
or light should be visible between it and the cookware.

at the same time.
■■
On ceramic glass models, use only flat-bottomed canners to
avoid damage to the cooktop and elements.
■■
For more information, contact your local agricultural
extension office, or refer to published home canning guides.
Companies that manufacture home canning products can
also offer assistance.

Aluminum Foil
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the oven bottom
finish, do not line the oven bottom with any type of foil or liner.
For best cooking results, do not cover entire oven rack with foil
because air must be able to move freely.
Positioning Racks and Bakeware
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the porcelain finish, do not place food or bakeware directly on the oven door or bottom.
Bakeware
To cook food evenly, hot air must be able to circulate. Allow 2" (5 cm) of space around bakeware and oven walls. Make sure that no bakeware piece is directly over another.

Oven Vent
The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven, and
should not be blocked or covered. Blocking or covering the
oven vent will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking and
cleaning results. Do not set plastics, paper or other items that
could melt or burn near the oven vent.
Baking and Roasting
ACCUBAKE Temperature Management System
Rapid Preheat
The ACCUBAKE® system electronically regulates the oven heat
levels during preheat and bake to maintain a precise temperature
range for optimal cooking results. The bake and broil elements
or burners cycle on and off in intervals. On convection range
models, the fan will run while preheating and may be cycled on
and off for short intervals during Bake to provide the best results.
This feature is automatically activated when the oven is in use.
Before baking and roasting, position racks according to
“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. When roasting, it is
not necessary to wait for the oven preheat cycle to end before
putting food in unless it is recommended in the recipe.
Rapid Preheat can be used to shorten the preheating time. Only
one standard flat oven rack should be in the oven during Rapid
Preheat. Extra racks should be removed prior to starting Rapid
Preheat. Press RAPID PREHEAT and follow the oven control
prompts, or, if preheating has already started, simply press
RAPID PREHEAT. The preheating cycle should be completed
before placing food in the oven and should be used only for onerack baking. When the Rapid Preheat cycle is complete, the oven
starts a normal Bake cycle.
®
Preheating
When START is pressed, the oven will begin preheating. Once
100ºF (38ºC) is reached, the display temperature will increase as
the actual temperature of the oven increases. When the preheat
temperature is reached, a tone will sound, and the selected
temperature will appear on the display. The time necessary
to preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C) is approximately 10 to
15 minutes, depending on the model. Factors that have an
impact on preheat times are: room temperature, starting oven
temperature, and the number of oven racks. Unused oven racks
can be removed prior to preheating your oven to reduce preheat time.
12
Broiling
Leave the door open 4" (10.2 cm) at the broil stop position
to ensure proper broiling temperature. Preheat the oven for 5
minutes before putting food in unless recommended otherwise in the recipe. Position food on grid in a broiler pan, then place it in the center of the oven rack.
Changing the temperature when broiling allows more precise
control when cooking. The lower the broil setting, the slower the
cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish
and poultry may cook better at lower broil settings. Use racks 6
or 7 for broiling. Refer to the “Positioning Racks and Bakeware”
section for more information.
On lower settings, the broil element will cycle on and off to
maintain the proper temperature.
■■
NOTE: Odors and smoke are normal the first few times the oven
is used or if the oven is heavily soiled.
For best results, use a broiler pan and grid. It is designed to
drain juices and help avoid spatter and smoke.
If you would like to purchase a broiler pan, one may be
ordered. Please refer to the “Accessories” section for more
information.
Convection Cooking
TimeSavor™ Plus Convection cycles the bake, broil, and
convection elements on and off in intervals while the fan
circulates the hot air. This movement of hot air helps maintain a
consistent temperature throughout the oven, cooking foods more
evenly, crisping surfaces while sealing in moisture and yielding
crustier breads.
IMPORTANT: With convection cooking, most foods can be
cooked at a lower temperature or at a shorter time. This range
automatically reduces the set oven temperature by 25°F (15°C)
for convection cooking.
During convection cooking, the bake, broil, and convection
elements cycle on and off in intervals to maintain the oven
temperature, while the fan circulates the hot air.
If the oven door is opened during convection cooking, the fan will turn off immediately. It will come back on when the oven door is closed.
NOTE: The oven door must be closed for convection broiling.
TimeSavor™ Plus Convection
When convection baking, broiling or roasting enter your normal
baking temperature. The control will automatically reduce the set
oven temperature by 25°F (15°C).
Convect Options
Convect Bake - Multiple-rack baking or cookies, biscuits, breads,
casseroles, tarts, tortes, cakes.
Convect Roast - Whole chicken or turkey, vegetables, pork
roasts, beef roasts.
Convect Broil - Thicker cuts or unevenly shaped pieces of meat,
fish or poultry.

RANGE CARE
Clean Cycle
6. Remove the residual water and loosened soils with a sponge
or cloth immediately after the Clean cycle is complete. Much
of the initial 2 cups (16 oz [500 mL]) of water will remain in the
oven after the cycle is completed. If additional soils remain,
leave a small amount of water in the oven bottom to assist
with the cleaning.
AquaLift® Technology is an innovative cleaning solution that
utilizes heat and water to release baked-on spills from the oven
in less than 1 hour. This new cleaning technology is a low-heat,
odor-free alternative to traditional self-cleaning options.
Allow the oven to cool to room temperature before using the
Clean cycle. If your oven cavity is above 200°F (93°C), “OVEN
COOLING” will appear in the display, and the Clean cycle will not
be activated until the oven cavity cools down.
To Clean:
1. Remove all racks and accessories from the oven cavity and
wipe excess soil. Use a plastic scraper to remove easilyremoved soils.
7. If any soils remain, remove them with a non-scratch
scrubbing sponge or plastic scraper. Additional Clean cycles may be run to help remove the stubborn soils.
IMPORTANT: Do not use oven cleaners. The use of
chemicals, including commercial oven cleaners or metal
scouring pads, may cause permanent damage to the
porcelain surface of the oven interior.
NOTES:
2. Pour 2 cups (16 oz [500 mL]) of distilled or filtered water onto
the bottom of the empty oven and close the oven door.
IMPORTANT: Do not use chemicals or other additives with the
water. Do not open the oven door during the Clean cycle. The
water on the oven bottom is hot.
3. Press AQUALIFT SELF-CLEAN and then START on the oven
control panel.
4. Allow 40 minutes for cleaning and cool down. A beep will
sound when the Clean cycle is complete.
5. Press CANCEL at the end of the cycle. CANCEL may be
pressed at any time to stop the Clean cycle.
14
■■
The range should be level to ensure that the entire surface
of the bottom of the oven cavity is covered by water at the
beginning of the Clean cycle.
■■

leave mineral deposits on the oven bottom.
■■
Before removing the residual water and loosened soils at the
end of the Clean cycle, insert a cloth or paper towel between
the lower edge of the oven door and the front frame to keep
water from spilling onto the front of the range and the floor.
■■
Soil baked on through several cooking cycles will be more
difficult to remove with the Clean cycle.
■■
Nonabrasive scrub sponges or eraser style cleaning pads
(without cleaners) can be effective for cleaning the oven
cavity walls, oven door and oven bottom for difficult soils. For best results, moisten the pads and sponges before use.
■■
Run an additional Clean cycle for stubborn soils.
■■
affresh® Kitchen and Appliance Cleaner and affresh® Cooktop
Cleaner may be used to clean the oven bottom, walls and
door when the oven has finished the cycle and returned to
room temperature. If affresh® Cooktop Cleaner is used, it is
recommended to wipe out the cavity with distilled water as
well. Refer to the “Accessories” section for information on
ordering.
