■ Injuries may result from the misuse of appliance doors or
drawers such as stepping, leaning, or sitting on the doors
or drawers.
■ Maintenance – Keep range area clear and free from
combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable
vapors and liquids.
■ Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should
not be stored in an oven or near surface units.
■ Top burner flame size should be adjusted so it does not
extend beyond the edge of the cooking utensil.
For self-cleaning ranges –

and routinely remove and clean the caps according to the
“General Cleaning” section.
Gas tube opening: Gas must flow freely throughout the gas tube
opening for the burner to light properly. Keep this area free of soil
and do not allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other
material to enter the gas tube opening. Protect it from spillovers
by always using a burner cap.

5. Turn on the burner. If the burner does not light, check cap
alignment. If the burner still does not light, do not service the
sealed burner yourself. Contact a trained repair specialist.
Home Canning
When canning for long periods, alternate the use of surface
burners between batches. This allows time for the most recently
used areas to cool.
■ Center the canner on the grate.
■
Do not place canner on 2 surface burners at the same time.
■
For more information, contact your local agricultural
department. Companies that manufacture home canning
products can also offer assistance.
Cookware
B
A. 1-1¹⁄₂" (25-38 mm)
B. Burner ports
Burner ports: Check burner flames occasionally for proper size
and shape as shown above. A good flame is blue in color, not
yellow. Keep this area free of soil and do not allow spills, food,
cleaning agents or any other material to enter the burner ports.
To Clean:
IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and
the oven and cooktop are cool. Do not use oven cleaners, bleach
or rust removers.
1. Remove the burner cap from the burner base and clean
according to “General Cleaning” section.
2. Clean the gas tube opening with a damp cloth.
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 or grates. 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
cooktop or grates.
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.

Oven Temperature Control
IMPORTANT: Do not use a thermometer to measure oven
temperature because opening the oven door may cause burner
cycling to give incorrect readings.
The oven provides accurate temperatures; however, it may cook
faster or slower than your previous oven, so the temperature
calibration can be adjusted. It can be changed in Fahrenheit or
Celsius.
A minus sign means the oven will be cooler by the displayed
amount. The absence of a minus sign means the oven will be
warmer by the displayed amount. Use the following chart as a
guide.

Preheating
Meat Thermometer
On models without a temperature probe, use a meat
thermometer to determine doneness of meat, poultry and fish.
The internal temperature, not appearance, should be used to
determine doneness. A meat thermometer is not supplied with
this appliance.
■ Insert the thermometer into the center of the thickest portion
of the meat or inner thigh or breast of poultry. The tip of the
thermometer should not touch fat, bone or gristle.
■
After reading the thermometer once, push it into the meat
½" (1.3 cm) more and read again. If the temperature drops,
cook the meat or poultry longer.
■
Check all meat, poultry and fish in 2 or 3 different places.
After the start pad is pressed, the oven will enter a timed preheat
conditioning. “PrE” (on some models) and the countdown time
will appear on the display. When the preheat conditioning time
ends, a tone will sound and the selected temperature will appear
on the display.
Preheat temperatures are affected by varying factors such as
room temperature and peak energy usage times. It is normal for
the temperature showing on the display and the actual oven
temperature to differ due to the cycling of the burners.
Waiting an additional 10 minutes, after the preheat conditioning
time ends, to put food in the oven is suggested when baking
foods with leavening ingredients, such as yeast, baking powder,
baking soda and eggs.
Broiling
Oven Vent
A
Broiling uses direct radiant heat to cook food. Changing the
temperature when Custom Broiling allows more precise control
when cooking. The lower the temperature, the slower the
cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish
and poultry may cook better at lower broiling temperatures.
■ For best results, use a broiler pan and grid (provided on some
models). They are designed to drain juices and help avoid
spatter and smoke.
If you would like to purchase a broiler pan, one may be
ordered. See “Assistance or Service” section to order. Ask for
Part Number 4396923.
A. 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 (on some models)
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 burners
cycle on and off in intervals. This feature is automatically
activated when the oven is in use.
Before baking and roasting, position racks according to the
“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. When roasting, it is
not necessary to wait for the oven preheat conditioning time to
end before putting food in unless recommended in the recipe.
To Bake or Roast:
1. Press BAKE.
2. Press TEMP or TEMP/HOUR “up” or “down” arrow pad to set
a temperature other than 350°F (175°C) in 5°F (3°C) amounts.
The bake range can be set between 170°F and 500°F (75°C
and 260°C).
When the oven temperature is greater than 170°F (77°C), no
preheat conditioning time will be shown in the display. The
preheat conditioning time will not change if the temperature is
reset before the countdown time ends.
3. Press START. The temperature can be changed after this
step. The start pad does not need to be pressed again.
If baking and roasting while the minute timer is counting
down, the set temperature can be seen for 5 seconds by
pressing BAKE.
4. Press OFF/CANCEL when finished.

■
For proper draining, do not cover the grid with foil. The
bottom of the pan may be lined with aluminum foil for easier
cleaning.
■
Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit the remaining fat on
the edges to avoid curling.
■
Pull out oven rack to stop position before turning or removing
food. Use tongs to turn food to avoid the loss of juices. Very
thin cuts of fish, poultry or meat may not need to be turned.
■
After broiling, remove the pan from the oven when removing
the food. Drippings will bake on the pan if left in the heated
oven, making cleaning more difficult.
Before broiling, position rack according to the Broiling Chart. It is
not necessary to preheat the oven before putting food in unless
recommended in the recipe. Position food on grid in the broiler
pan, then place it in the center of the oven rack. Close the door.
To Broil:
1. Press BROIL.
2. Press START.
3. Press OFF/CANCEL when finished.
To Custom Broil:

keypad. If the temperature is too high, the oven door will
remained locked and “cool” and “locked” will be displayed.
The oven light will not work during the self-cleaning cycle.
Style 1 - Electronic Oven Control
Burn Hazard
Do not touch the oven during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Keep children away from oven during
Self-Cleaning cycle.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to
the fumes given off during the Self-Cleaning cycle. Exposure to
the fumes may result in death to certain birds. Always move birds
to another closed and well-ventilated room.
Self-clean the oven before it becomes heavily soiled. Heavy soil
results in longer cleaning and more smoke.
Keep the kitchen well-ventilated during the Self-Cleaning cycle to
help get rid of heat, odors, and smoke.
Do not block the oven vent(s) during the Self-Cleaning cycle. Air
must be able to move freely. Depending on your model, see
“Oven Vent” or “Oven Vents” section.
Do not clean, rub, damage or move the oven door gasket. The
door gasket is essential for a good seal.
Prepare Oven:
■
Remove the broiler pan, grid, cookware and bakeware and,
on some models, the temperature probe from the oven.
■
Remove any foil from the oven because it may burn or melt,
damaging the oven.
■
Remove oven racks to keep them shiny and easy to slide.
See “General Cleaning” section for more information.
■
Hand clean inside door edge and the 1½" (3.8 cm) area
around the inside oven cavity frame, being certain not to
move or bend the gasket. This area does not get hot enough
during self-cleaning to remove soil. Do not let water, cleaner,
etc. enter slots on door frame. Use a damp cloth to clean this
area.
■
Wipe out any loose soil to reduce smoke and avoid damage.
At high temperatures, foods react with porcelain. Staining,
etching, pitting or faint white spots can result. This will not
affect cooking performance.
How the Cycle Works
IMPORTANT: The heating and cooling of porcelain on steel in the
oven may result in discoloring, loss of gloss, hairline cracks and
popping sounds.
Before self-cleaning, check that the door is completely closed or
the door will not lock and the self-clean cycle will not begin.
Do not wipe down any inside surfaces until the oven has
completely cooled down. Applying a cool damp cloth to the inner
door glass before it has cooled completely could result in the
glass breaking.
