Important Safety Information
Receiving Oven
• Authorized servicer must install the range, in
accordance with the Installation Instructions.
Adjustments and service should be performed only by
authorized servicer.
• Plug range into a 120–volt grounded outlet only. Do not
remove round grounding prong from the plug. If in doubt
about grounding of the home electrical system, it is
consumers responsibility and obligation to have an
ungrounded outlet replaced with a properly grounded
three-prong outlet in accordance with the National
Electrical Code. Do not use an extension cord with
this appliance.
• Insure all packing materials are removed from the range
before operating it, to prevent fire or smoke damage
should the packing material ignite.
• With prolonged use of a range, high floor temperatures
could result. Many floor coverings will not be able to
withstand this kind of use. Never install range over vinyl
tile or linoleum that cannot withstand high
temperatures. Never install range directly over
carpeting.
Using the Oven
• Do not leave children alone or unattended where a
range is hot or in operation. They could be seriously
burned.
• Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on the
door. They could damage the range and cause severe
personal injury.
• Wear proper apparel. Loose fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn when using oven. Flammable
material could ignite if brought in contact with flame or
hot oven surfaces which may cause severe burns.
• Never use range for warming or heating a room. This
may cause burns, injuries, or a fire.
• Do not use water on grease fires.
• Do not let grease or other flammable materials collect
in or around range.
• Do not repair or replace any part of range unless it is
recommended in this manual.
• Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders
used on hot surfaces may result in a burn from steam.
Do not let a potholder touch the flame. Do not use a
towel or a bulky cloth as a potholder.
• Never leave range unattended while cooking.
Boilovers can cause smoking and may ignite.
• Only certain types of glass/ceramic, earthenware, or
other glazed utensils are suitable for oven use.
Unsuitable utensils may break due to sudden
temperature change.
• Use care when opening oven door. Let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
©2004 Maytag Services
• Do not heat unopened food containers in oven.
Buildup of pressure may cause a container to burst and
result in injury.
• Keep range vent ducts unobstructed.
• Place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool.
If a rack must be moved while oven is hot, use a dry
potholder.
• Do not use aluminum foil to line oven bottom or racks.
Aluminum foil can cause a fire and will seriously affect
baking results, and damage to porcelain surfaces.
• Do not touch interior surfaces of oven during or
immediately after use. Do not let clothing or other
flammable materials come in contact with bake or broil
burners.
• Other areas of the oven can become hot enough to
cause burns, such as vent openings, window, oven
door and oven racks.
• To avoid steam burns, do not use a wet sponge or cloth
to wipe up spills on hot cooking area.
• Do not store combustible or flammable materials, such
as gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids near
or in oven.
• Do not clean oven door gasket located on back of the
door. Gasket is necessary to seal the oven and can be
damaged as a result of rubbing or being moved.
• Do not drape towels or any materials on oven door
handles. These items may ignite causing a fire.
!
CAUTION
Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets
above range. Children may climb on oven to reach
these items and become seriously injured.
Baking, Broiling, and Roasting
• Do not use oven area for storage.
• Stand back from range when opening a hot oven door.
Hot air or steam can cause burns to hands, face, and
eyes.
• Use only glass cookware appropriate for use in electric
ovens.
• Always remove broiler pan from oven when finished
broiling. Grease left in pan can catch fire if oven is used
without removing grease from the broiler pan.
• Make sure broiler pan is placed correctly to reduce any
possibility of grease fires.
• Should a grease fire occur in the broiler pan, turn off
oven, and keep oven door closed until fire burns out.

Important Safety Information
Surface Cooking Units
Oven Fires
1. Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance 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.
1. If smoke is visible, do not open oven door.
2. Never Leave Surface Units Unattended—Boilover
causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may
ignite.
7. If there is any damage to components, call an
authorized servicer before using range.
3. 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.
• Do not cook food directly on range top surface, always
use cookware.
• Do not mix household cleaning products. Chemical
mixtures may interact with hazardous results.
• Do not put plastic items on warm cooking areas.
• Do not slide rough objects across range top surface.
• Do not leave fat heating unless you remain nearby. Fat
can ignite if overheated by spilling onto hot surfaces.
• Do not allow pots to boil dry as this can cause damage
to cooking surface and pan.
• Do not use range top surface as a cutting board.
2. Turn oven control to “OFF”.
3. Turn off power at main circuit breaker or fuse box.
4. Turn on vent to remove smoke.
5. Allow food/grease to burn out in oven.
6. If smoke and fire persist, call fire department.
Precautions
4. Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line
oven bottom. Improper installation of these liners may
result in a risk of electrical shock or fire.
5. Glazed Cooking Utensils—Do not use glass, ceramic,
earthware, or other glazed utensils. They can damage
smoothtop and can break due to sudden change in
temperature.
6. 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.
7. Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements—Heating
elements should never be immersed in water.
Product Safety Devices
Safety devices and features have been engineered into
the product to protect consumer and servicer. Safety
devices must never be removed, bypassed, or altered in
such a manner as to defeat the purpose for which they
were intended.
Grounded Oven Frame
Ovens
1. Use Care When Opening Door—Let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
2. Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers—Buildup of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in
injury.
Ground prong on power
cord is connected to the
frame, usually a green
lead fastened by a
screw. In addition, any
part or component
capable of conducting
an electric current is
grounded by its
mounting.
3. Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.
4. Placement of Oven Racks—Always place oven racks
in desired location while oven is cool. If rack is
removed while oven is hot, do not let potholder
contact hot heating element in oven.
In Case of Fire
Fires can occur as a result of over cooking or excessive
grease. Though a fire is unlikely, proceed as follows:
Surface Element Fire
1. Smother fire with a nonflammable lid/baking soda, or
use a Class ABC or BC extinguisher. Not water, salt
or flour.
If any ground wire,
screw, strap, nut, etc. is
removed for service, or
any reason, it must be
reconnected to its
original position with
original fastener before
the appliance is put into
operation again.
Failure to do so can
create a possible shock
hazard.
2. As soon as it is safe to do so, turn the surface
controls to “OFF”.

“Action Taken” applies as long as the condition exists. If the condition goes away, the control recovers.
If there is a cook function or timer active, the function continues. The user cannot edit the function, and [Cancel] will cancel the cook
mode.
Flash rate: 0.2 seconds on, 0.1 second off. Pressing any key will clear the display until the fault clears and is re-triggered.
“Action Taken” applies until there is a POR (Power On Reset [“hard reset”]).
If the control believes the door is locked, it will attempt to unlock it when the function cancels and the cavity temperature cools.
Special conditions for latch faults (9dxx):
•
A known good unlock position is defined as when the unlock switch reads closed and lock switch reads open.
•
A known good lock position is defined as when the unlock switch reads open and lock switch reads closed.
•
A faulted switch means the switch input is reading an invalid state, neither open nor closed.
•
Once a latch fault occurs, latch movement is disabled until there is a POR. An error tone will sound if a function requiring a
faulted latch is attempted.
•
If at POR, the latch is not at a known good unlock position:
•
If the latch is at a good lock position, it will attempt to unlock when the RTD (Resistance Temperature Device)
temperature is below 400°F.
•
If the latch is not at a good lock position, the control will fault.
•
If a latch fault occurs while the RTD is above the lock temperature, the latch will not try to move, but the fault is still logged
to EEPROM after the first stage of detection.
•
The Display column for latch faults applies 1) If the latch was moving when the fault occurred; 2) If the latch is already in a
known locked state when the fault occurs.
•
•
If the last known good position was unlock (e.g. baking, or idle) and a latch fault occurs, the motor is never moved. The
fault is logged to EEPROM and is not seen by the user.
•
Latch fault detection is in two stages. The first stage is to allow the control to recover without moving the latch. After this:
•
If the latch was previously at a known good unlock position, the latch will not move and the control will fault.
•
If the control was previously in a known good lock position:
•
•
If the RTD is below 400°F, the latch will attempt to recover to it’s proper position (up to three
revolutions). If it cannot, the control will fault and the latch will move to a calculated unlock position.
•
If the RTD is at or above 400°F, the control will fault. When the RTD cools to below 400°F, the control
will attempt to recover to a good unlock position (up to three revolution). If it cannot, the control will fault
and the latch will move to a calculated unlock position.
•
Note: If the unlock position cannot be found, this may result in a second fault, the first fault occurring
when the latch request was locked, and the second when the latch request is unlocked.
If the latch is moving when the fault occurs, the control will bypass the first stage of detection and immediately try
to find it’s proper position. If it cannot, the control will fault and the latch will move to a calculated unlock position.
•
Affected DLBs (Double Line Breaks) and loads are disabled during detection.
•
If the control is in a known good unlock position and the lock switch becomes faulted:
•
12
LOCK flashes after a fault is detected and until the unlocked position is achieved. The unlock position may be
identified by a successful unlock switch closure, or as the result of timing when the unlock switch is not
functioning properly.
•
The control will not fault.
•
If a function requiring latch movement is attempted while the lock switch is faulted, the control will sound an error
tone and the function will be disabled.
If the control is in a known good lock position and the unlock switch becomes faulted:
•
The control will not fault.
•
After the function is canceled and unlock is attempted, the control will attempt to unlock the latch according to
the procedures in these notes.

Surface Cooking
Surface Controls
Suggested Heat Settings
The size, type of cookware and cooking operation will affect the
heat setting. For information on cookware and other factors
affecting heat settings, refer to “Cooking Made Simple” booklet.
Use to turn on the surface elements. An infinite choice of
heat settings is available from Low to High. The knobs can
be set on or between any of the settings.
Low (2): Use to keep foods
warm and melt chocolate
and butter.
Setting the Controls
1. Place pan on surface element.
2. Push in and turn the knob in either direction to the desired
heat setting.
• The control panel is marked to identify which
element the knob controls. For example, the
graphic at right indicates left front element.
High (10): Use to bring
liquid to a boil. Always
reduce setting to a lower
heat when liquids begin to
boil or foods begin to cook.
Med. Low (3-4):
Use to continue
cooking covered
foods or steam
foods.
3. There is an element “ON” indicator light on the control
panel. When any surface control knob is turned on, the
light will turn on. The light will turn off when all the
surface elements are turned off.
4. After cooking, turn knob to OFF. Remove pan.
Medium (5-7): Use to
maintain slow boil for
large amounts of liquids
and for most frying
operations.
Med. High (8-9): Use
to brown meat, heat oil
for deep fat frying or
sauteing. Maintain fast
boil for large amounts
of liquids.
CAUTION
AFTER COOKING
• Make sure surface unit is turned off.
• Clean up messy spills as soon as possible.
BEFORE COOKING
• Always place a pan on the surface unit before you turn it
on. To prevent damage to range, never operate surface
unit without a pan in place.
• NEVER use the cooktop as a storage area for food or
cookware.
OTHER TIPS
• If cabinet storage is provided directly above cooking
surface, limit it to items that are infrequently used and can
be safely stored in an area subjected to heat. Temperatures may be unsafe for items such as volatile liquids,
cleaners or aerosol sprays.
• NEVER leave any items, especially plastic items, on the
cooktop. The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable
items, melt or soften plastics, or increase pressure in
closed containers causing them to burst.
• NEVER allow aluminum foil, meat probes or any other
metal object, other than a pan on a surface element, to
contact heating elements.
DURING COOKING
• Be sure you know which knob controls which surface
unit. Make sure you turned on the correct surface unit.
• Begin cooking on a higher heat setting then reduce to a
lower setting to complete the operation. Never use a
high heat setting for extended cooking.
• NEVER allow a pan to boil dry. This could damage the
pan and the appliance.
• NEVER touch cooktop until it has cooled. Expect some
parts of the cooktop, especially around the surface units,
to become warm or hot during cooking. Use potholders
to protect hands.

ment. Carefully pull out and away
from receptacle.
To replace: Insert element terminals into receptacle. Guide the
element into place. Press down on
the outer edge of element until it
sits level on drip bowl.
To protect drip bowl finish:
• To lessen discoloration and crazing, avoid using high
heat for long periods.
• Do not use oversized cookware. Pans should not
extend more than 1-2 inches beyond the element.
TERMINALS
Drip Bowls
• When home canning or cooking with big pots, use
the Canning Element (Model CE1). Contact your
Maytag dealer for details or call 1-877-232-6771 USA
or 1-800-688-8408 Canada to order.
The drip bowls under each surface element catch boilovers and
must always be used. Absence of drip bowls during cooking may
damage wiring.
To prevent the risk of electric shock or fire, never line drip bowls
with aluminum foil.
• Clean frequently. (See page 17.)
Drip bowls will discolor (blue/gold stains) or craze over time if
overheated. This discoloration or crazing is permanent. This will
not affect cooking performance.

warm and melt chocolate
and butter.
1. Place pan on surface element.
2. Push in and turn the knob in either direction to the desired
heat setting.
• The control panel is marked to identify which
element the knob controls. For example, the
graphic at right indicates left front element.
High (10): Use to bring
liquid to a boil. Always
reduce setting to a lower
heat when liquids begin to
boil or foods begin to cook.
Med. Low (3-4):
Use to continue
cooking covered
foods or steam
foods.
3. There is an element “ON” indicator light on the control
panel. When any surface control knob is turned on, the
light will turn on. The light will turn off when all the
surface elements are turned off.
4. After cooking, turn knob to OFF. Remove pan.
Dual Elements (select models)
The cooking surface has two dual
elements located in the right front and
left front of the smoothtop. This allows
you to change the size of these
elements. Turn control knob to OFF
before switching element size.
Medium (5-7): Use to
maintain slow boil for
large amounts of liquids
and for most frying
operations.
Press the switch to the left to use the
large element or to the right to use the
small element.
Med. High (8-9): Use
to brown meat, heat oil
for deep fat frying or
sauteing. Maintain fast
boil for large amounts
of liquids.
CAUTION
AFTER COOKING
• Make sure surface unit is turned off.
• Clean up messy spills as soon as possible.
BEFORE COOKING
• Always place a pan on the surface unit before you turn it
on. To prevent damage to range, never operate surface
unit without a pan in place.
• NEVER use the cooktop as a storage area for food or
cookware.
OTHER TIPS
• If cabinet storage is provided directly above cooking
surface, limit it to items that are infrequently used and can
be safely stored in an area subjected to heat. Temperatures may be unsafe for items such as volatile liquids,
cleaners or aerosol sprays.
• NEVER leave any items, especially plastic items, on the
cooktop. The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable
items, melt or soften plastics, or increase pressure in
closed containers causing them to burst.
• NEVER allow aluminum foil, meat probes or any other
metal object, other than a pan on a surface element, to
contact heating elements.
• NEVER store heavy items above the cooktop that could fall
and damage it.
DURING COOKING
• Be sure you know which knob controls which surface
unit. Make sure you turned on the correct surface unit.
• Begin cooking on a higher heat setting then reduce to a
lower setting to complete the operation. Never use a
high heat setting for extended cooking.
• NEVER allow a pan to boil dry. This could damage the
pan and the appliance.
• NEVER touch cooktop until it has cooled. Expect some
parts of the cooktop, especially around the surface units,
to become warm or hot during cooking. Use potholders
to protect hands.

Smoothtop Surface
Hot Surface Light
The Hot Surface indicator light is located on the
control panel. The light will be illuminated
when any cooking area is hot. It will remain on,
even after the control is turned off, until the area has cooled.
Smoothtop Surface Notes:
• For Canadian models, the smoothtop does NOT operate
during a clean cycle.
Warming Center (select models)
• Cooktop may emit light smoke and odor the first few
times the cooktop is used. This is normal.
OFF
Use the Warming Center to keep hot cooked foods
warm, such as vegetables, gravies and oven-safe
dinner plates.
• Smoothtop cooktops retain heat for a period of time
after the element is turned off. Turn the elements off
a few minutes before food is completely cooked and use
the retained heat to complete cooking. When the Hot
Surface indicator light turns off, the cooking area will be
cool enough to touch. Because of the way they retain
heat, the smoothtop elements will not respond to
changes in settings as quickly as coil elements.
Setting the Control:
Press switch up to turn off or down to activate.
ON
Notes:
• Never warm food for longer than one hour (eggs for 30
minutes), as food quality may deteriorate.
• In the event of a potential boilover, remove the pan from
the cooking surface.
• Do not heat cold food on the Warming Center.
• Warming temperatures of the food will vary depending
on type and amount of food. Always hold food at proper
food temperatures. USDA recommends food temperatures between 140°-170° F.
• Never attempt to lift the cooktop.
• The smoothtop surface may appear discolored when it is
hot. This is normal and will disappear when the surface
cools.
Warming Center Notes:
Cooking Areas
• Use only cookware and dishes recommended as safe for
oven and cooktop use.
The cooking areas on your range are identified by permanent
circles on the smoothtop surface. For most efficient cooking,
fit the pan size to the element size.
• Always use oven mitts when removing food from the
Warming Center as cookware and plates will be hot.
Pans should not extend more than 1/2 to 1-inch beyond
the cooking area.
• All foods should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to
maintain food quality.
When a control is turned on, a glow can be seen through the
smoothtop surface. The element will cycle on and off to
maintain the preset heat setting, even on High.
• When warming pastries and breads the cover should have
an opening to allow moisture to escape.
• Do not use plastic wrap to cover foods. Plastic may melt
on to the surface and be very difficult to clean.

Surface Cooking
To Prevent Stains
Tips to Protect the
Smoothtop Surface
• Never use a soiled dish cloth or sponge to clean the
cooktop surface. A film will remain which may cause stains
on the cooking surface after the area is heated.
Cleaning (see page 20 for more information)
• Before first use, clean the cooktop.
• Continuously cooking on a soiled surface may/will result in
a permanent stain.
• Clean your cooktop daily or after each use. This will keep
your cooktop looking good and can prevent damage.
To Prevent Other Damage
• If a spillover occurs while cooking, immediately clean the
spill from the cooking area while it is hot to prevent a tough
cleaning chore later. Using extreme care, wipe spill with a
clean dry towel.
• Do not allow plastic, sugar or foods with high sugar content
to melt onto the hot cooktop. Should this happen, clean
immediately. (See Cleaning, page 20.)
• Do not allow spills to remain on the cooking area or the
cooktop trim for a long period of time.
• Never let a pan boil dry as this will damage the surface and
pan.
• Never use abrasive cleansing powders or scouring pads
which will scratch the cooktop.
• Never use cooktop as a work surface or cutting board.
• Never use chlorine bleach, ammonia or other cleansers not
specifically recommended for use on glass-ceramic.
• Do not use a small pan on a large element. Not only does
this waste energy, but it can also result in spillovers burning
onto the cooking area which requires extra cleaning.
To Prevent Marks & Scratches
• Do not use non-flat specialty items that are oversized or
uneven such as round bottom woks, rippled bottom and/or
oversized canners and griddles.
• Never cook food directly on the surface.
• Do not use glass pans. They may scratch the surface.
• Never place a trivet or wok ring between the surface and
pan. These items can mark or etch the top.
• Do not use foil or foil-type containers. Foil may melt onto
the glass. If metal melts on the cooktop, do not use. Call an
authorized Maytag Servicer.
• Do not slide aluminum pans across a hot surface. The pans
may leave marks which need to be removed promptly. (See
Cleaning, page 20.)
• Make sure the surface and the pan bottom are clean before

Cookware Recommendations
Using the right cookware can prevent many problems, such
as food taking longer to cook or achieving inconsistent
results. Proper pans will reduce cooking times, use less
energy, and cook food more evenly.
All canners and large pots must have flat bottoms and
must be made from heavy-gauge materials. This is critical
on smoothtop surfaces. The base must not be more than
1 inch larger than the element.
When canners and pots do not meet these standards, cooking
times may be longer, and cooktops may be damaged.
Flat Pan Tests
See if your pans are flat.
Some canners are designed with smaller bases for use on
smoothtop surfaces.
The Ruler Test:
1. Place a ruler across the bottom of the pan.
When canning, use the High heat setting only until the
water comes to a boil or pressure is reached in the canner.
Reduce to the lowest heat setting that maintains the boil or
pressure. If the heat is not turned down, the cooktop may be
damaged.
2. Hold it up to the light.
3. Little or no light should be visible under the ruler.
The Bubble Test:
See “Cooking Made Simple” booklet for more information.
1. Put 1 inch of water in the pan. Place on cooktop and turn
control to High.
2. Watch the formation of the bubbles as the water heats.
Uniform bubbles mean good performance, and uneven
bubbles indicate hot spots and uneven cooking.
See “Cooking Made Simple” booklet for more information.

Surface Controls
Suggested Heat Settings
The size, type of cookware and cooking operation will affect
the heat setting. For information on cookware and other
factors affecting heat settings, refer to Cookware Recommendations on page 7 and “Cooking Made Simple” booklet.
Use to turn on the surface elements. An infinite choice of
heat settings is available from Low to High. The knobs can
be set on or between any of the settings.
Setting the Controls
Flex Choice Warm
(right rear element only):
Uses a lower heat to
keep foods warm for
serving.
1. Place pan on surface element.
2. Push in and turn the knob in either direction to the desired
heat setting.
• The control panel is marked to identify which
element the knob controls. For example, the
graphic at right indicates left front element.
High (10): Use to bring
liquid to a boil. Always
reduce setting to a lower
heat when liquids begin to
boil or foods begin to cook.
Low (2): Use to
keep foods warm
and melt chocolate and butter.
3. There is an element “ON” indicator light on the control
panel. When any surface control knob is turned on, the
light will turn on. The light will turn off when all the
surface elements are turned off.
4. After cooking, turn knob to OFF. Remove pan.
Med. Low (3-4):
Use to continue
cooking covered
foods or steam
foods.
Dual Elements
The cooking surface has two dual
elements located in the right front and
left front of the smoothtop. This allows
you to change the size of these
elements.
Medium (5-7): Use to
maintain slow boil for
large amounts of liquids
and for most frying
operations.
Press the switch to the left to use the
large element or to the right to use the
small element.
Med. High (8-9): Use
to brown meat, heat oil
for deep fat frying or
sauteing. Maintain fast
boil for large amounts
of liquids.
CAUTION
AFTER COOKING
• Make sure surface unit is turned off.
• Clean up messy spills as soon as possible.
BEFORE COOKING
• Always place a pan on the surface unit before you turn it
on. To prevent damage to range, never operate surface
unit without a pan in place.
• NEVER use the cooktop as a storage area for food or
cookware.
OTHER TIPS
• If cabinet storage is provided directly above cooking
surface, limit it to items that are infrequently used and can
be safely stored in an area subjected to heat. Temperatures may be unsafe for items such as volatile liquids,
cleaners or aerosol sprays.
• NEVER leave any items, especially plastic items, on the
cooktop. The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable
items, melt or soften plastics, or increase pressure in
closed containers causing them to burst.
• NEVER allow aluminum foil, meat probes or any other
metal object, other than a pan on a surface element, to
contact heating elements.
• NEVER store heavy items above the cooktop that could fall
and damage it.
DURING COOKING
• Be sure you know which knob controls which surface
unit. Make sure you turned on the correct surface unit.
• Begin cooking on a higher heat setting then reduce to a
lower setting to complete the operation. Never use a
high heat setting for extended cooking.
• NEVER allow a pan to boil dry. This could damage the
pan and the appliance.
• NEVER touch cooktop until it has cooled. Expect some
parts of the cooktop, especially around the surface units,
to become warm or hot during cooking. Use potholders
to protect hands.

Surface Cooking
Smoothtop Surface
Hot Surface Indicator Light
The Hot Surface indicator light is located on the
control panel. The light will be illuminated
when any cooking area is hot. It will remain on,
even after the control is turned off, until the area has cooled.
Smoothtop Surface Notes:
• On Canadian models, the smoothtop does NOT operate
during a clean cycle.
• Cooktop may emit light smoke and odor the first few
times the cooktop is used. This is normal.
Warming Center (style may vary by model)
Use the Warming Center to keep hot cooked foods warm, such
as vegetables, gravies and oven-safe dinner plates.
• Smoothtop cooktops retain heat for a period of time
after the element is turned off. Turn the elements off
a few minutes before food is completely cooked and use
the retained heat to complete cooking. When the Hot
Surface Indicator light turns off, the cooking area will be
cool enough to touch. Because of the way they retain
heat, the smoothtop elements will not respond to
changes in settings as quickly as coil elements.
Setting the Control:
Touch the Surface Warming Center pad and
then the Autoset pad. Press Autoset pad again
to turn off.
Warming Center Notes:
• In the event of a potential boilover, remove the pan from
the cooking surface.
• Never warm food for longer than one hour (eggs for 30
minutes), as food quality may deteriorate.
• Never attempt to lift the cooktop.
• Do not heat cold food on the Warming Center.
• The smoothtop surface may appear discolored when it is
hot. This is normal and will disappear when the surface
cools.
• Warming temperatures of the food will vary depending on
type and amount of food. Always hold food at proper food
temperatures. USDA recommends food temperatures
between 140°-170° F.
Cooking Areas
• Use only cookware and dishes recommended as safe for
oven and cooktop use.
The cooking areas on your range are identified by permanent
circles on the smoothtop surface. For most efficient cooking,
fit the pan size to the element size.
• Always use oven mitts when removing food from the
Warming Center as cookware and plates will be hot.
• All foods should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to
maintain food quality.
Pans should not extend more than 1/2 to 1-inch beyond
the cooking area.
• When warming pastries and breads the cover should have
an opening to allow moisture to escape.
When a control is turned on, a glow can be seen through the
smoothtop surface. The element will cycle on and off to
maintain the preset heat setting, even on High.
• Do not use plastic wrap to cover foods. Plastic may melt
on to the surface and be very difficult to clean.
For more information on cookware, refer to Cookware
Recommendations on page 7 and “Cooking Made Simple”
booklet included with your range.

Surface Cooking
To Prevent Stains
Tips to Protect the
Smoothtop Surface
• Never use a soiled dish cloth or sponge to clean the
cooktop surface. A film will remain which may cause stains
on the cooking surface after the area is heated.
Cleaning (see page 21 for more information)
• Continuously cooking on a soiled surface may/will result in
a permanent stain.
• Before first use, clean the cooktop.
• Clean your cooktop daily or after each use. This will keep
your cooktop looking good and can prevent damage.
To Prevent Other Damage
• If a spillover occurs while cooking, immediately clean the
spill from the cooking area while it is hot to prevent a tough
cleaning chore later. Using extreme care, wipe spill with a
clean dry towel.
• Do not allow plastic, sugar or foods with high sugar content
to melt onto the hot cooktop. Should this happen, clean
immediately. (See Cleaning, page 21.)
• Do not allow spills to remain on the cooking area or the
cooktop trim for a long period of time.
• Never let a pan boil dry as this will damage the surface and
pan.
• Never use abrasive cleansing powders or scouring pads
which will scratch the cooktop.
• Never use cooktop as a work surface or cutting board.
• Never use chlorine bleach, ammonia or other cleansers not
specifically recommended for use on glass-ceramic.
• Do not use a small pan on a large element. Not only does
this waste energy, but it can also result in spillovers burning
onto the cooking area which requires extra cleaning.
To Prevent Marks & Scratches
• Do not use non-flat specialty items that are oversized or
uneven such as round bottom woks, rippled bottom and/or
oversized canners and griddles.
• Never cook food directly on the surface.
• Do not use glass pans. They may scratch the surface.
• Never place a trivet or wok ring between the surface and
pan. These items can mark or etch the top.
• Do not use foil or foil-type containers. Foil may melt onto
the glass. If metal melts on the cooktop, do not use. Call an
authorized Maytag Servicer.
• Do not slide aluminum pans across a hot surface. The pans
may leave marks which need to be removed promptly. (See
Cleaning, page 21.)
• Make sure the surface and the pan bottom are clean before
turning on to prevent scratches.
• To prevent scratching or damage to the glass-ceramic top,
do not leave sugar, salt or fats on the cooking area. Wipe
the cooktop surface with a clean cloth or paper towel
before using.
• Never slide heavy metal pans across the surface since
these may scratch.

Surface Cooking
Canning and Oversize
Cookware
Cookware Recommendations
Using the right cookware can prevent many problems, such
as food taking longer to cook or achieving inconsistent
results. Proper pans will reduce cooking times, use less
energy, and cook food more evenly.
All canners and large pots must have flat bottoms and
must be made from heavy-gauge materials. This is critical
on smoothtop surfaces. The base must not be more than
1 inch larger than the element.
When canners and pots do not meet these standards, cooking
times may be longer, and cooktops may be damaged.
Flat Pan Tests
See if your pans are flat.
Some canners are designed with smaller bases for use on
smoothtop surfaces.
The Ruler Test:
1. Place a ruler across the bottom of the pan.
When canning, use the High heat setting only until the
water comes to a boil or pressure is reached in the canner.
Reduce to the lowest heat setting that maintains the boil or
pressure. If the heat is not turned down, the cooktop may be
damaged.
2. Hold it up to the light.
3. Little or no light should be visible under the ruler.
The Bubble Test:
See “Cooking Made Simple” booklet for more information.
1. Put 1 inch of water in the pan. Place on cooktop and turn
control to High.
2. Watch the formation of the bubbles as the water heats.
Uniform bubbles mean good performance, and uneven
bubbles indicate hot spots and uneven cooking.
See “Cooking Made Simple” booklet for more information.

To set Broil:
• For best results when broiling, use a two-piece broiler
pan.
1. Press the appropriate Broil pad.
• BROIL, UPPER and SET flash.
• HI broil is used for most broiling. Use LO broil when
broiling longer cooking foods to allow them to cook to
well done stage without excessive browning.

twice to set LO broil.
• HI or LO will be displayed.
• Broil times may be longer when the lower broiling
temperature is selected.
Select HI broil for normal broiling. Select LO broil for
low-temperature broiling of longer cooking foods such
as poultry.
• Never cover broiler pan insert with aluminum foil. This
prevents fat from draining to the pan below.
3. After four seconds, the oven will start.
• Expect broil times to increase and browning to be slightly
lighter if appliance is installed on a 208-volt circuit.
• BROIL and HI or LO will remain lit.
• If more than 30 seconds elapse between pressing the
Broil pad and the Autoset pad, the oven will not be set
and the display will return to the previous display.
• HI is used for most broiling. Use LO broil when broiling
longer cooking foods. The lower temperature allows
food to cook to the well done stage without excessive
browning.
4. For optimum browning, preheat broil element for 3-4
minutes before adding food.
• Most foods should be turned halfway through broiling
time.
5. Place food in the oven. Leave oven door open about four
inches (the first stop).
• For additional broiling tips and temperatures, refer to the
“Cooking Made Simple” booklet.
6. Turn meat once while cooking.
