paael41 and verifv that the antitip bracket is engaged.
Do not use the range for warmin
or heating the room. Persons cou Bd
be burned or injured, or a fire
could start.
Do not leave children 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. They could be
burned or injured.
Do not wear loose or hanging garments when using the range. They
could ignite if they touch a hot surface unit or heating element and
you could be burned.
Do not repair or replace any part
of the range unless specifically
recommended
in this manual. All
other servicin
should be referred
to a qualified 9echnician.
Do not store flammable
materials
in or near the range. They could
explode or burn.
Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flamina pan on cooktoo
by covering with’s well-fitted lid;
cookie sheet or flat tray. Flaming
grease outside of pan can be
extinguished
with baking soda or,
if available,
a multipurpose
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
bulky cloth for a potholder. They
could catch on fire.
l Select
a pan with a flat bottom
that is about the same size as the
surface unit. If pan is smaller than
the surface unit, some of the heatina element will be exposed and
may result in the igniting of
clothina or ootholders. Correct
pan size also improves cooking
efficiency.
l Never
leave surface units unattended at hiah heat settinas. A
boil-over could result and%ause
smoking and greasy spill-overs
that may ignite.
l Check
to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe for use on the
cooktop. Only certain types of
glass, glass-ceramic,
ceramic,
earthenware
or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktops
without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature.
l Turn pan
handles inward, but not
over other surface units. This will
help reduce the chance of burns,
igniting of flammable
materials,
and spills due to bumping of the
pan.
l Use care
when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing
food.

Do not heat unopened
containers.
They could explode. The hot
contents could cause burns and
container particles could cause
injury
Keep range vents unobstructed.
Always position 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 clean door seal. It is essential for a good seal. Care should
be taken not to rub, damage, or
move the seal. Clean only parts
recommended
in this Use and
Care Guide.
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 store things children might
want above the range. Children
could be burned or Injured while

l
Do not touch surface units, areas
near units, heating elements or
interior surfaces of oven. Surface
units and heating elements may
be hot even though they are dark
in color. Areas near surface units
and 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 surface
units, areas near units, heating ele
ments or interior surfaces of oven
until they have had sufficient time
to cool. Other surfaces of the
range may become hot enough
to cause burns; such as, the oven
vent opening, the surface near the
vent opening, the cooktop, the
oven door and window.

I
I
One of the surface unit indicator
lights on the control panel will glow
when a surface unit is on.
Control knobs must be pushed in
before turning them to a setting. They
can be set anywhere
between HI
and OFF.
Burn and Fire Hazard
Be sure all control knobs are
turned to OFF and all indicator
lights are OFF when you are not
cooking.
Someone could be
burned or a fire could starl if
a surface unit is accidentally
left ON.
Until you get used to the settings, use the following
as a gulde. For best results,
start cooking at the high settings; then turn the control knob down to continue
cooking. Turn on the surface unit only after placing filled pan on unit.
Use HI to start
foods cooking; to bring
liquids to a
boil.
Use MED-HI
to hold a
rapid boil; to
fry chicken or
pancakes.
Use MED for
gravy, puddings and
icing; to
cook large
amounts of
vegetables.
Use MED-LO
to keep food
cooking after
starting it
on a higher
setting.
Use LO to
keep food
warm until
ready to
serve. Set the
heat higher
or lower
within the LO
band to keep
food at the
temperature
you want.
Solid Element Surface Units
Before placing a pan on solid element surface units for the first time, heat on
HI setting for five minutes. The surface units will give off smoke as the protective
coating
applied
at the factory, finishes bonding to the surface.
Solid element surface units are made of heavy cast-iron to provide even
cooking. Each surface unit has a built-in protective
limiter as a safety feature.
The limiter senses uneven cooking temperatures
and automatically
reduces
the heat level. The limiter will sense uneven heat when a pan boils dry or when
6
a pan is removed and the surface unit is left on. The heat level may also be
reduced automatically
if the bottom of the pan is not flat or if the pan is too
large or too small for the element. This will result in longer cooking times.
Solid elements hold heat longer than conventional
surface units. For best cooking results, use a high setting for only a very short period of time. Then use a
lower setting to complete
the cooking. You may want to turn the solid element
surface unitOFF a few minutes before you finish cooking.
Cookware
There is no one brand of utensil that is best for all people. Knowing something
about pan materials and construction will help you select the right cooking
utensils for your needs.
1. Use only
flat-bottomed
utensils that make good contact with the surface
units. To check the flatness of a utensil:
l Turn it over and
check the bottom of the pan by placing a ruler across it.
l Rotate
the ruler in all directions. There should be no gaps between the pan
and the ruler.
2. The pan should have straight sides and a tight-fitting
lid.
3. Choose medium to heavy gauge (thickness) pans that are fairly lightweight.
Remember that a very heavy pan will be even heavier when filled with
food.
4. The pan material (metal or glass) affects how fast heat transfers from the
surface unit through the pan material and how evenly heat spreads over
the pan bottom.
5. Handles
securely
should be made of a sturdy, heat-resistant
attached to the pan.
material
and be
NOTE: Canning with large diameter canners on solid element surface units is
not recommended.
However, special small-sized canners that properly fit the
surface units can be used. Check your local hardware or department
store for
availability.

Burn, Personal Injury and Product Damage
Hazard
If the pan is too small for the surface unit, you could be burned by
boil-overs
and hot handles. Use correctly
sized cooking utensils to
prevent Injury.
Not all glass, glass-ceramic,
ceramic,
earthenware
and other glazed
utensils are safe for cooktop
cooking. Some will crack or break with
sudden temperature
changes, which could result in personal
injury.
Solid elements stay hot for a long time. Do not use the HI setting for long
periods of time or leave pans on hot elements when cooking is done.
Burned food and damage
to the cookware
could result.
Do not leave an empty utensil, or one which has boiled dry, on a hot
surface unit. It can overheat
and may damage
the utensil or surface
unit.
Do not use canners, woks and specialty
utensils with rounded, warped,
rldged or dented bottoms. These could cause severe overheating
which damages
the utensil and/or surface unit.
