Important Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
OVEN
COOKTOP
• Use Care When Opening Oven Door or Warmer Drawer (if
equipped)—Stand to the side of the range when opening the door
of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or
replace food in the oven.
• Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven vent is located
under the left rear surface element if your model is equipped with
coil elements. The oven vent is located below the backguard for
models equipped with ceramic-glass cook tops. Touching the
surfaces in this area when the oven is operating may cause severe
burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or near
the oven vent. These items could melt or ignite.
• Placement of Oven Racks. Always place oven racks in desired
location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot
use extreme caution. Use potholders and grasp the rack with both
hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot heating
elements in the oven. Remove all utensils from the rack before
moving.
• Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The broiler pan
and its insert allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away from the
high heat of the broiler.
• Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil. Exposed
fat and grease could ignite.
• Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven
bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual.
Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric
shock, or fire.
• Know which knob controls each surface heating unit. Place a
pan of food on the unit before turning it on, and turn the unit off
before removing the pan.
• Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped with one or
more surface units of different sizes. 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 element will also improve efficiency.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend
Over Adjacent Surface Elements—To reduce the risk of burns,
ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional
contact with the utensil, the handle of the utensil should be
positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over
adjacent surface units.
• Never Leave Surface Elements Unattended at High Heat
Settings—Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that
may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Do Not Immerse or Soak Removable Heating Elements—
Heating elements should never be immersed in water. Heating
elements clean themselves during normal operation.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass, glass/
ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are
suitable for cook top service without breaking due to the sudden
change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s
recommendations for cook top use.
• When flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn the fan on.
SELF CLEANING OVENS
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts listed in this Use & Care Manual. Before self cleaning the oven, remove the broiler
pan and any utensils or foods from the oven.
• 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.
• 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.
•The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any range. Move birds to another
well-ventilated room.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR RANGE
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area underneath each
surface element. Do not allow grease to accumulate.
• Kitchen cleaners and aerosols—Always follow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for use. Be aware that excess
residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing damage and injury.
• Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently—Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter. Follow manufacturer’s
instructions for cleaning.
FOR CERAMIC-GLASS COOK TOP MODELS
• Do Not Cook on Broken Cook Top—If cook top should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cook top
and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
• Clean Cook Top with Caution—If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to avoid a steam burn.
Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to publish a list of substances known
to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure
to such substances.

Before Setting Oven Controls
Oven Vent Location
For models equipped with ceramic cooktops, the oven vent is located under the
left rear side of the control panel. When the oven is on, warm air is released
through the vent. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven
and good baking results. DO NOT BLOCK OVEN VENT.
Arranging Oven Racks
ALWAYS ARRANGE OVEN RACKS WHEN THE OVEN IS COOL (PRIOR TO
OPERATING THE OVEN). Always use oven mitts when using the oven.
Removing & Replacing Oven Racks
To remove, pull the rack forward until it stops. Lift up front of rack and slide out. To replace, fit the rack onto the guides on
the oven walls. Tilt the front of the rack upward and slide the rack back into place.
Using proper cookware
Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface heating
element. Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the cookware (See
Fig.1). Be sure to follow the recommendations for using cookware as shown in Fig. 2.
Figure 1
Note: The size and type of cookware used will influence
the setting needed for best cooking results.
Deep fat frying - Use a thermometer and adjust the
surface control 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
undercooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food
at once as the food will neither brown nor cook properly.

Before Setting Oven Controls
About the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements located below the surface of the glass. The design of the ceramic cooktop
outlines the area of the surface element underneath. Make sure the diameter of the pan matches the diameter of the element
outline on the cooktop. Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop to the cookware. Only flat-bottomed cookware
should be used. The type and size of cookware, the number of surface elements in use and their settings, are all factors that
will affect the amount of heat that will spread to areas beyond the surface elements. The areas surrounding the elements may
become hot enough to cause burns.
About the Radiant Surface
Elements
The element temperature rises gradually
and evenly. As the temperature rises, the
element will glow red. To maintain the
selected setting, the element will cycle on
and off. The heating element retains
enough heat to provide a uniform and
consistent heat during the off cycle. The
ceramic fixture thermally insulates the
heating element, concentrating heat in the
heating zone. For efficient cooking, turn
off the element several minutes before
cooking is complete. This will allow residual
heat to complete the cooking process.

(some models)
NOTE: Please read detailed instructions for ceramic glass cooktop cleaning in the Care & Cleaning and Before You Call
checklist sections of this Use & Care Manual.
NOTE: Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to cycle on and off, even at the HI setting. This helps to prevent
damage to the ceramic smooth top. Cycling at the HI setting is normal and can occur if the cookware is too small for the
radiant element or if the cookware bottom is not flat.
Dual Radiant Surface Elements (some models)
The dual radiant surface element is made up of an inner and outer coil within the same
surface element. A variable control is used to operate the different coils. The smaller or
inner coil has a lower wattage and can be used to prepare smaller quantities of food in
smaller pans. The dual element can also combine both the inner and outer coils for a
combined higher wattage. The combined operation should be used to prepare larger
quantities of food in larger pans.
Element On and Hot Surface Indicator Lights
Your range is equipped with two different surface control lights that will glow on your range—
the Element On indicator light and a Hot Surface indicator light.
The Element On located on the control panel, will glow when any surface element is turned
on. A quick glance at this light after cooking is an easy check to be sure all surface controls
are turned off.
The Hot Surface indicator light, located on the control panel, will glow as the surface
cooking area heats up and will REMAIN ON until the glass cooktop has cooled to a
MODERATE level.
7
Setting Surface Controls
To Operate Single Radiant Surface Elements
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the radiant surface element.
2. Push in and turn the surface control knob in either direction to the desired
setting. Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to a
lower setting to finish cooking. The surface control knobs do not have to be
set exactly on a particular mark. Use the marks as a guide and adjust the
control knob as needed. Each surface element provides a constant amount of
heat at each setting. A glowing red surface heating area extending beyond the
bottom edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is too small for the
surface heating area.
3. When cooking is completed, turn the surface element off before removing the
cookware. Note: the Element On indicator light will glow when one or more
elements are turned on. A quick glance at the indicator light(s) when cooking
is finished is an easy check to be sure all control knobs are turned off. The Hot
Surface indicator light will continue to glow AFTER the control knob is turned
to the “Off” position and will glow until the heating surface area has cooled
sufficiently.
Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned off. The glass surface may
still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
top of the range 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 surface elements.
Do not allow aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt to make contact with the ceramic glass
cooktop. If these items melt on the cooktop they will damage the ceramic cooktop.

Setting Surface Controls
To Operate Dual Radiant Surface Elements (If equipped)
Symbols on the backguard are used to indicate which coil of the Dual Radiant
symbol
element will heat. The symbol indicates the inner coil only. The
indicates both inner and outer coils will heat. You may switch from either coil
setting at any time during cooking. Push in and turn the control knob in either
direction to the desired setting as instructed above.

Setting the Warming Zone Control (some models)
The purpose of the Warming Zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving
temperature. Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food
on the Warming Zone.
All food placed on the Warming Zone should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil
to maintain quality. For best results, when warming pastries or breads, the cover
should have an opening to allow moisture to escape. Do not use plastic wrap to
cover food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very difficult to clean.
Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use
on the Warming Zone.
Unlike the surface elements, the Warming Zone will not glow red
when it is hot.

can be set at any position between HI and LO for different levels of heating.
2. When done, turn the control to OFF. The Warming Zone will remain warm until
the hot surface indicator light goes off.
Temperature Selection - Refer to the chart at the side column for recommended
heating levels. If a particular food is not listed, start with the medium level, and
adjust as needed. Most foods can be kept at serving temperatures by using the
medium level.
Note: Use the Warming Zone to keep cooked foods hot such as; vegetables,
gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and oven-safe dinner plates.

Benefits of Speed Bake™ Cooking
System:
—Foods cook up to 30% faster, saving
time and energy.
—Multiple rack baking.
—No special pans or bakeware needed.
Speed Bake™ Cooking System - (If equipped)
Speed Bake™ Cooking System uses a fan to circulate the oven's heat uniformly
and continuously around the oven. This improved heat distribution allows for fast,
even cooking and browning results. It also gives better baking results when using
two racks at the same time.
Heated air flows around the food from all sides, sealing in juices and flavors.
Meats cooked with Speed Bake™ Cooking System are juicer. Poultry is crisp
on the outside while staying tender and moist on the inside. Breads and pastry
brown more evenly. Most foods baked in a standard oven can be cooked faster
and more evenly with Speed Bake™ Cooking System.

Self-Cleaning
During the self-cleaning
cycle, the outside of the range can become
very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave small
children unattended near the appliance.
The health of some birds is
extremely sensitive to the fumes given off
during the self-cleaning cycle of any range.
Move birds to another well-ventilated
room.
DO NOT line the oven
walls, racks, bottom or any other part of
the range with aluminum foil. Doing so will
destroy heat distribution, produce poor
baking results and cause permanent
damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil
will melt to the interior surface of the
oven).
DO NOT force the oven
door open. This can damage the automatic
door locking system. Use caution when
opening the door after the self-cleaning
cycle is completed. The oven may still be
VERY HOT.
Self-Cleaning Oven
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking
temperatures) which eliminate soil completely or reduce it to a fine powdered ash
you can wipe away with a damp cloth.
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any part
of the self-cleaning oven.
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The woven material of the oven door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage
or remove the gasket.
DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so could
cause damage.
Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils and any aluminum foil.
These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures.
Oven racks may be left in the oven or may be removed. If they go through the
clean cycle their color will turn slightly blue and the finish will be dull. After the
cycle is complete and the oven has cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax
paper or a cloth containing a small amount of baby oil or salad oil (this will
make the racks glide easier into the rack position).
Remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the selfcleaning cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers
can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. DO
NOT allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk,
tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they
may leave a dull spot even after cleaning.
Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door
gasket and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. These areas
heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water.
NOTE: Prior to setting the Self-Clean cycle, any spills remaining on the oven
bottom should be removed.
Some models have a recessed well for the bake element. On these models, the
bake element is designed to be tilted up using your hand from the front of the bake
element. This will allow easier access to the oven bottom for cleaning. Be careful
not to raise the element more than 4 or 5 inches from the resting position.
16
Self-Cleaning
To Start the Self-Clean Cycle
For satisfactory results use a 2 hour self-clean cycle for light soils and a 3 hour cycle for average to heavy soils.
NOTE: The kitchen area should be ventilated using an open window, ventitlation fan or exhaust hood during the first self-clean
cycle. This will help eliminate the normal odors associated with the first self-clean cycle.
To Set the Controls for a Self-Clean Cycle:
1. Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day.
2. Press
. "— — —" appears in the display.
3. Press the

5. As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK" indicator light will
flash. DO NOT open the door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the oven door to lock).
6. The "LOCK" light will glow until the cleaning cycle is completed or cancelled, and the oven temperature has cooled.
When the Self-Clean Cycle is Completed:
1. The time of day or “End” will appear in the display window and the “Clean” and "LOCK" light will continue to glow.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened.
3. If “End” is in the display and the “Clean” indicator remains on, press
. The time of day will appear in the display.
NOTE: When the oven is cool, wipe away any residue or powdered ash with a damp cloth or paper towel.
Stopping or Interrupting a Self-Cleaning Cycle
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a self-cleaning cycle:
1. Press
.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened.
3. Restart the self-clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.
Use care when opening the oven door after the self-cleaning cycle. Stand to the side of the oven when opening
the door to allow hot air or steam to escape.
DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution when
opening the door after the self-cleaning cycle is completed. The oven may still be VERY HOT.

wiping around the controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause
damage to the appliance.To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides
of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.
Clean stainless steel with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean
water and a cloth. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides
or chlorines. Do not use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners
that are especially made for cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the
cleaners from the surface as bluish stains may occur during heating that cannot
be removed.
Porcelain Enamel Broiler Pan and Insert,
Door Liner, Body Parts, Warmer Drawer
(if equipped)
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with
a 1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with
an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and
a damp cloth, and then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry
with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged
during future heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
Oven Racks
Oven racks may be removed or left in the oven during the self-clean cycle for
cleaning. If removed, clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following
manufacturer's instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry.
If the racks are cleaned in the self-clean cycle, their color will turn slightly blue and
the finish will be dull. After the self-clean cycle is complete, and the oven has
cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small
amount of baby oil or salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack
positions).
Oven door
To clean oven door, wash with hot, soapy water and a clean cloth. DO NOT
immerse the door in water.
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The oven door gasket is made of a woven
material, on self cleaning models, which is essential for a good seal. Care should
be taken not to rub, damage or remove the gasket.
Ceramic Cooktop
See Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance in the Care & Cleaning section.
18
Care & Cleaning
Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your Ceramic Glass cooktop.
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply some of the cooktop cleaning cream supplied with your new range. Buff
with a non-abrasive cloth or pad such as a 3M Scotch-Brite® Blue Multi-Purpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge. This will make
cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. The special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective finish on the glass to
help prevent scratches and abrasions.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the cooktop can cause
metal markings on the cooktop surface. These marks should be removed
immediately after the cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning
cream. Metal marks can become permanent if not removed prior to future
use.
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough bottoms can mark
or scratch the cooktop surface. Do not slide anything metal or glass
across the cooktop. Do not use your cooktop as a cutting board or work
surface in the kitchen. Do not cook foods directly on the cooktop surface
without a pan. Do not drop heavy or hard objects on the glass cooktop, they
may cause it to crack.
Cleaning Recommendations for Ceramic Glass Cooktop
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and can
chemically damage the ceramic-glass surface.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of the cooktop cleaning cream (cleaner must be recommended for Ceramic Glass cooktops) directly
to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or a 3M Scotch-Brite® Blue Multi-Purpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge to clean the entire
cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue.
For heavy, burned on soil:
Apply a few drops of the cooktop cleaning cream (cleaner must be recommended for Ceramic Glass cooktops) directly
to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a 3M Scotch-Brite® Blue Multi-Purpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge, applying
pressure as needed. Once the sponge has been used on the cooktop, do not use the sponge 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. Remove loosened
soils with cooktop cleaner and buff surface clean.
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled or melted
onto the ceramic cooktop surface. Permanent damage (such as pitting
of the cooktop surface) may occur if not removed immediately. After
turning the surface elements OFF, use a razor blade scraper or a metal
spatula with a mitt and scrape the soil from the hot surface (as
illustrated). Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same method for heavy
or burned on soils.
19
Care & Cleaning
Cleaning Recommendations for Ceramic Glass Cooktops (continued)
Do not use the following on the ceramic glass cooktop:
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as metal and some
nylon pads. They may scratch the cooktop, making it more difficult to clean.
• Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach, ammonia or oven
cleaners, as they may etch or discolor the cooktop.
• Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as they can leave soil or
lint on the cooktop which can burn and cause discoloration.
Note: Additional cooktop cleaning cream may be ordered by visiting the
Frigidaire website at www.frigidaire.com.
Removing and Replacing the Oven Door (all models)

Before You Call
Solutions to Common Problems
Before you call for service, review this list. It may save you time and expense. The list includes common occurrences that
are not the result of defective workmanship or materials in this appliance.
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE / SOLUTION
Range is not level.
Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven rack. Adjust
leveling legs at base of range until the oven rack is level.
Be sure floor is level and is strong and stable enough to adequately support range.
If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear unlevel. Be sure cabinets are square
and have sufficient room for range clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily. Appliance
must be accessible for service.
Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly. Contact builder or installer to make
appliance accessible.
Carpet interferes with range. Provide sufficient space so range can be lifted over carpet.
Oven control beeps continuously and F1, F3
or F9 appears in the display.
Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Turn the Temperature Control Knob to
OFF, and disconnect the power to the range. Wait 30 seconds and reconnect the power.
If fault recurs, disconnect the power and contact an authorized servicer.
Surface unit too hot or not hot enough.
Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface unit to be used.
Surface unit does not heat.
Lightweight or warped pans used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or heavyweight
cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped pans. Cookware materials and weight of
the material affect heating. Heavy- and medium-weight pans heat evenly. Because
lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily.
No power to the appliance. Check steps under "Entire Appliance Does Not Operate" in
this Before You Call checklist.
Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface unit to be used.
Entire appliance does not operate.
Make sure cord/plug is plugged tightly into outlet.

Before You Call
Solutions to Common Problems
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE / SOLUTION
Oven smokes excessively during broiling.
Control(s) not set properly. Follow instructions under Setting Oven Controls.
Make sure oven door is opened to broil stop position.
Meat too close to the element. Reposition the rack to provide proper clearance between the
meat and the element. Preheat broil element for searing.
Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut remaining fatty edges
to prevent curling, but do not cut into lean.
Insert on broiler pan wrong side up and grease not draining. Always place grid on the
broiler pan with ribs up and slots down to allow grease to drip into pan.
Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary when broiling
frequently. Old grease or food spatters cause excessive smoking.
Poor baking results.
Many factors affect baking results. Make sure the proper rack position is used. Center
food in the oven and space pans to allow air to circulate. Allow the oven to preheat to
the set temperature before placing food in the oven. Try adjusting the recipe's
recommended temperature or baking time. If you feel the oven is too hot or cool, see
Adjusting Oven Temperature in this Use & Care Manual.
Self-cleaning cycle does not work.
Control(s) not set properly. Follow instructions under Self-Cleaning.
Self-cleaning cycle was interrupted. Follow steps under "Stopping or Interrupting a SelfCleaning Cycle" under Self-Cleaning.
Soil not completely removed after selfcleaning cycle.
Failure to clean bottom, front top of oven, frame of oven or door area outside oven seal.
These areas are not in the self-cleaning area, but get hot enough to burn on residue.
Clean these areas before the self-cleaning cycle is started. Burned-on residue can be
cleaned with a stiff nylon brush and water or a nylon scrubber. Be careful not to damage
the oven gasket.
Flames inside oven or smoking from vent.
Excessive spillovers in oven. Set self-clean cycle for a longer cleaning time.
Excessive spillovers in oven. This is normal, especially for high oven temperatures, pie

Normal environment. Houses along sea coast are exposed to salt air. Protect bowls as
much as possible from direct exposure to salt air.
Drip bowls turning color or distorted (Coil
element models).
Bottom surface of cookware extends beyond surface elements and touches cooktop
surface. This can cause high enough temperatures to discolor the drip bowls. DO NOT
use cookware of this type. Pan sizes should be matched to the size of the element.
Replacement drip bowls may be purchased from your dealer.
Scratches or abrasions on cooktop surface
(Ceramic-Glass cooktop models).
Coarse particles such as salt or sand between cooktop and utensils can cause scratches.
Be sure cooktop surface and bottoms of utensils are clean before usage. Small scratches
do not affect cooking and will become less visible with time.
