Your safety and the safety of others is very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and
obey all safety messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will be preceded by the safety alert symbol and the word “DANGER” or
“WARNING.” These words mean:
wDANGER
You will be killed or seriously injured if you don’t
follow instructions.
wWARNING
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t

RANGE SAFETY
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical
shock, 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, 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 proper•
ly 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.
• 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.

RANGE SAFETY
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
• 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 flaming foods under the hood, turn the
fan on.

Home canning information
To protect your range:
• Use flat-bottomed canners on all types of
cooktops, especially
ceramic glass. Canners
with rippled or ridged
bottoms do not allow
1"
1"
good contact with the
surface.
• Center the canner
over the largest coil
element. Do not extend
Pan
Surface
more than one inch
cooking area
outside the coil element.
Large diameter canners/pans, if not centered
correctly, trap heat and can cause damage to the
cooktop.
• Do not place your canner on two coil elements at
the same time.
• The type of material the canner is made of
determines the length of heating time. Refer to the
“Characteristics of cookware materials” chart later
in this section for more information.
• When canning for long periods of time, allow
elements and the surrounding surfaces to cool
down.
8
• Alternate use of the coil elements between
batches or prepare small batches at a time.
• Start with hot water, cover with a lid, and bring
to a boil; then reduce heat to maintain a boil or
required pressure levels in a pressure canner.
• On coil element model, keep your reflector
bowls clean so that they will always reflect heat
well.
• For up-to-date information on canning, contact
your local U.S. Government Agricultural
Department Extension Office or companies who
manufacture home canning products.
Optional canning kit
Most water-bath or pressure canners have large
diameters. If you do canning with them at high
heat settings for long periods of time, you can
shorten the life of regular coil elements. This can
also damage the cooktop. If you plan to use the
cooktop for canning, we recommend the
installation of a Canning Kit. Order the kit
(Part No. 242905) from your dealer or designated
service company.

USING THE COIL ELEMENTS (CONT.)
Cookware tips
• Select a pan that is about the same size as the
•
•
•
surface cooking area. Cookware should not extend more than 1 inch (2.5 cm) outside the area.
For best results and greater energy
efficiency, use only flat-bottomed cookware that
makes good contact with the surface cooking
area. Cookware with rounded, warped, ribbed
(such as some porcelain enamelware), or dented
bottoms could cause uneven heating and poor
cooking results.
Cookware designed with slightly indented
bottoms or small expansion channels can be used.
Cookware with a non-stick finish has heating
characteristics of the base material.
• Use flat bottom cookware for best heat
•
conduction from the surface cooking area to the
cookware. Determine flatness with the ruler test.
Place the edge of a ruler across the bottom of the
cookware. Hold it up to the light. No light should be
visible under the ruler. Rotate the ruler in all
directions and look for any light.
Do not leave empty cookware, or cookware which
has boiled dry, on a hot surface cooking area. The
cookware could overheat, causing damage to the
cookware or the surface cooking area.
CHARACTERISTICS OF COOKWARE MATERIALS
The pan material affects how fast heat transfers from the coil element through the pan material and how evenly heat
spreads over the pan bottom. Choose pans that provide the best cooking results.
Aluminum
• Heats quickly and evenly.
• Use for all types of cooking.
• Medium or heavy thickness is best for most cooking.
• Used as a core or base in cookware to provide even heating.
Cast iron
• Heats slowly and evenly.
• Good for browning and frying.
• Maintains heat for slow cooking.
• Can be coated with porcelain enamel.
Ceramic or
ceramic glass
• Heats slowly and unevenly.
• Use on low to medium settings.
• Follow manufacturer’s instructions.
Copper
• Heats very quickly and evenly.
• Used as a core or base in cookware to provide even heating.
Earthenware
• Can be used for cooktop cooking if recommended by the manufacturer.
• Use on low settings.
Porcelain enamel-on-steel or
enamel-on-cast iron
• See cast iron and stainless steel.
Stainless steel
• Heats quickly but unevenly.
• A core or base of aluminum or copper on the cookware provides even heating.
• Can be coated with porcelain enamel.

USING YOUR RANGE
USING THE OVEN
Positioning racks and pans
Place the oven racks where you need them before
turning on the oven.
• To move a rack, pull it out to the stop position,
raise the front edge and lift it out.
• Be sure the rack(s) is level.
• Use pot holders or oven mitts to protect your hands
if rack(s) must be moved while the oven is hot.
• For best performance, cook on one rack. Place the
rack so the top of the food will be centered in the
oven.
• When cooking with two racks, arrange the racks
on the 2nd and 4th rack guides. Two sheets of
cookies may be baked if sheets are switched at
approximately three quarters of the total bake time.
Increase baking time, if necessary.
• For best results allow 2 inches of space around
each pan and between
pans and oven walls. Hot
air must circulate around
the pans in the oven for
even heat to reach all
parts of the oven. This
results in better baking.
Where to place pans:
WHEN YOU HAVE
PLACE
1 pan
In center of the oven rack.
2 pans
Side by side or slightly
staggered.
3 or 4 pans
In opposite corners on
each oven rack. Stagger
pans so no pan is directly
over another.

USING ALUMINUM FOIL
• Do not line the oven bottom with any type of
foil, liners, or cookware. Permanent damage
will occur to the oven bottom finish.
• Do not block the oven bottom vents.
• Do not cover the entire rack with aluminum foil.
Doing so will reduce air
circulation and overall
oven performance.
• To catch spillovers
from pies or casseroles
place foil on the oven
rack below. Foil should
be turned up at edges
and be at least 1 inch
larger than dish.
• Place tent-shaped foil loosely over meat or
poultry to slow down surface browning for long
term roasting. Remove foil for the last 30 minutes.
• Use narrow strips of foil to shield piecrust edges
if browning too quickly.

4. When roasting, put your food in the oven.
You do not have to preheat the oven when
roasting, unless your recipe recommends it.
Roasting meats and poultry
• For even cooking, place the meat on a rack in a
•
shallow pan. This keeps the meat out of the
drippings and allows the heat to circulate better.
Use a meat thermometer for the most accurate
doneness. Insert it so the tip is in the center of
the largest muscle or thickest portion of the meat
or poultry. Make sure the thermometer is not
touching bone, fat, or the bottom of the pan.
5. Press START/ENTER.
A preheat conditioning time counts down the
approximate preheat time after the oven
temperature has been set and START has been
pressed. The oven control automatically sets
preheating times based on the oven temperature
you select:
• For 245°F and less, the preheating time is
2 minutes, 30 seconds.
• For 250°F-445°F, the preheating time is
4 minutes, 15 seconds.
• For above 450°F, the preheating time is
6 minutes, 30 seconds.
As the preheat conditioning ends, the selected
oven temperature replaces “PrE” on the display
and the time of day reappears. You will hear a 1second tone indicating the oven is ready to use.
The ACCUBAKE® system electronically regulates
the preheat time and temperature to maintain a precise temperature range for the best cooking results.
The preheat and set temperatures may be different

ADJUSTING THE OVEN TEMPERATURE CONTROL
Although your new oven is properly adjusted to
provide accurate temperatures, it may cook faster
or slower than your old oven.
If you are not satisfied with the baking/roasting
results, you can change the offset temperature by
following the steps below.
NOTE: DO NOT measure the oven temperature with
a thermometer. Opening the oven door will lower
the oven temperature and give you an incorrect
reading. Also, the thermometer temperature reading
will change as your oven cycles.
1. Press and hold BAKE for 5 seconds.
The display will show the current offset temperature, for example “0,” if you have not already
adjusted the temperature.

BROILING
NOTES:
• Do not preheat when broiling, unless your recipe
recommends it.
• Leave the door partly open whenever you use
the oven to broil. This lets the oven stay at the
proper temperatures.
Front of rack
1. Place the rack where you need it.
You need to place the rack so that the surface
of the food is at least 3 inches away from the
broil element. See “Broiling guidelines” later in

Broiling guidelines
• Use only the broiler pan and grid provided.
They are designed to drain extra juices from the
cooking surface. This drainage helps prevent
spatter and smoke.
• To make sure the juices drain well, do not cover
the grid with foil.
• Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit the fat
on the edges to prevent curling.
• Use tongs to turn meat to avoid losing juices.
• Pull out oven rack to stop position before turning
or removing food.
• 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.
• For easier cleaning, line the bottom of the pan
with aluminum foil. Clean the pan and grid as
soon as possible after each use.
Recommended rack positions are numbered from
the bottom (1) to the top (5). For best results, place
food 3 inches or more from the broil element.

THE OVEN VENT
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven through
a vent under the left rear coil element. You can
cook on this coil element or keep food warm on it
while the oven is on. The vent is needed for air circulation. Do not block the vent by using extra
large pans or covers. You will get poor
baking/roasting results.
NOTE: Never leave plastic utensils over the vent.
They could melt.

of the heat that’s meant to go into or around
cookware goes down and heats the reflector bowl.
This extra heat can cause it to change color.
