Important Safety Instructions
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to persons, or damage
when using the oven, follow basic precautions, including the following:
1. Your unit should be installed by a qualified technician. The
appliance must be installed and electrically grounded according to
local codes. Have this technician show the the location of the gas
shut-off valve on the range so you know where and how to turn off
the gas if necessary. IN MASSACHUSETTS: All gas products must
be installed by a “Massachusetts” licensed plumber or gasfitter.
2. Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of this appliance
unless specifically recommended in this manual. All servicing
should be referred to a qualified technician. A qualified technician
is required for any adjustments or conversions to Nat. or LP gas.
3. The “push-to-turn” knobs of this range are designed to be childsafe. However, children should not be left alone in the kitchen
while the range is in use. Do not store items of interest to children
over the unit. CAUTION: Children climbing to reach items could
be seriously injured.
4. GREASE is flammable and should be handled carefully. Do not use
water on grease fires. Never pick up a flaming pan. Smother
flaming pan by covering utensil completely with well-fitting lid,
cookie sheet or flat tray. Flaming grease outside of utensil can be
extinguished with baking soda or, if available, a multipurpose dry
chemical or foam type extinguisher.
5. Never leave the surface area unattended at high heat setting.
Boil-overs cause smoking and greasy spill-overs which may ignite.
6. If you are “flaming” liquor or other spirits under an exhaust, TURN
THE FAN OFF. The draft could cause the flames to spread out of
control.
7. Wear proper apparel. Loose-fitting or hanging garments should
never be worn while using the appliance.
8. Never use your range for warming or heating a room. This is based
on safety considerations.
9. Use proper pan size. Select utensils having flat bottoms large
enough to cover the burner. Using undersized utensils allows the
flame to come up the side of the utensil, scorching the outside of
the utensil and making cleanup harder.
4
10. The flame of the open-top burner should be adjusted to just cover
the bottom of the pan or pot. Excessive burner setting may cause
scorching of adjacent countertop surfaces, as well as the outside of
the utensil. This is based on safety considerations.
11. Use dry pot holders. Moist or damp pot holders on hot surfaces
may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch hot
surface areas. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth.
12. 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 toward
the center of the range, and so that it does not extend over
adjacent burners.
13. Surface areas near burners may become hot enough to cause
burns. During and after use, do not touch areas near burners until
they have had sufficient time to cool.
14. No oven liner protection coating such as aluminum foil should be
used in or around any part of the oven. Improper oven liners may
result in a risk of electric shock or fire. Keep oven free from grease
build-up.
15. Once the unit is installed as outlined in the Installation Instructions,
it is important that the fresh air supply is not obstructed. Ensure
that the kitchen is well-ventilated. Keep natural venting holes open
or install a mechanical ventilation device. Prolonged or intensive
use of the appliance may call for additional (such as opening a
window) or more effective ventilation (such as increasing the level
of a mechanical ventilation if present).
16. The flueway must also
remain clear.
17. Storage cabinet area above
the unit must be 36” (91.4
cm) and cannot project more
than 13” (33.0 cm) outward
from the rear wall. Beware
of potential hazards
associated with retrieving
items from such cabinets
when the unit is in operation.
18. Keep area clean and free from combustible material, gasoline, and
other flammable liquids.
19. Do not heat unopened food containers; buildup of pressure may
cause the container to explode and result in injury.
5
20. This appliance is not connected to a combustion products
evacuation device. It shall be installed and connected in
accordance with current installation regulations giving particular
attention to the relevant requirements regarding ventilation.
21. No attempt should be made to operate the appliance during
power outage.
22. A risk of tip-over may result if the appliance is not installed in
accordance with installation instructions including excessive
loading of the oven door or from abnormal usage.
23. Do not attempt to operate the appliance during power failure.
24. Never sit, step, stand, or lean on any part of the oven, or injury
may result.
25. Use care when opening oven door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing food.
Cooking Utensils
Each cook has his or her own preference for the particular cooking
utensils that are most appropriate for the type cooking being done.
Any and all cooking utensils are suitable for use in the range and it is
not necessary to replace your present domestic utensils with
commercial cookware. This a matter of personal choice. As with any
cookware, yours should be in good condition and free from excessive
dents on the bottom to provide maximum performance and
convenience. NOTE: WHEN USING BIG POTS AND/OR HIGH
FLAMES, IT IS RECOMMENDED TO USE THE FRONT BURNERS.
THERE IS MORE ROOM IN THE FRONT AND POTENTIAL CLEANUP
OF REAR OR APPLIANCE DUE TO STAINING OR DISCOLORATION
WILL BE MINIMIZED.
Before You Use Your New Range
Grill (If applicable)
The grates should be removed and washed in hot soapy water, rinsed
and then replaced prior to use. Other grill parts should be removed,
dusted, and replaced making sure that no flammable materials have
been accidentally placed in the grill.
Wok Pan w/Lid (If applicable)
Remove all packaging materials and temporary labels from the wok.
Clean thoroughly with hot soapy water and dry thoroughly. Apply a
light coat of vegetable oil (do not use corn oil) to the entire inside
surface with a paper towel. Heat the wok on medium setting until the
cooking surface turns golden brown. Repeat this procedure several
times. This seasoning seals the pores of the metal, keeps food from
sticking, and prevents the wok from rusting. Wipe off excess oil before
using or storing.
Drip Tray/Pan
The drip tray should be pulled out and checked for flammable
materials. Make sure to unwrap the drip pan and replace it in its
proper place under the griddle or grill (if applicable).
Oven
Before first use, wipe interior with soapy water and dry thoroughly.
Basic Functions of Your Oven
NATURAL AIRFLOW BAKE
Heat is radiated from the two bake
burners in the bottom of the oven cavity
and is circulated with natural airflow. This
is your traditional bake setting.
All products are wiped clean with solvents at the factory to remove any
visible signs of dirt, oil, and grease which may have remained from the
manufacturing process. Before starting to cook, clean the range
thoroughly with hot, soapy water.
Steel Griddle/Simmer Plate (If applicable)
The griddle is a heavy-weight, polished steel griddle that has a USDA
authorized protective coating. Before using, remove protective coating
using a Scotch Brite® soft scour pad. It is very important to season the
griddle by coating lightly with cooking oil.
6
INFRARED BROIL
The broil burner at the top of the oven
heats the metal screen until it glows. The
glowing screen produces the infrared
heat, searing the outside of broiled foods
and sealing in juices.
7
CONVECTION BAKE
Heat is radiated from the bake burners in
the bottom of the oven cavity and is
circulated by the motorized fan in the rear
of the oven. It provides more even heat
distribution throughout the oven cavity for
all uses. Multiple rack use is possible for the
largest baking job. When roasting, cool air
is quickly replaced - searing meats on the
outside and retaining more juices and
natural flavor on the inside with less
shrinkage.
INFRARED CONVECTION BROIL
Exactly the same as regular broiling with
the additional benefit of air circulation by
the motorized fan in the rear of the oven.
The cool air is quickly replaced-improving
the already high performance of the
infrared broil burner.
CONVECTION DEHYDRATE
With the temperature control on 175°F,
warm air is radiated from the bake burners
in the bottom of the oven cavity and is
circulated by a motorized fan in the rear of
the oven. Over a period of time, the water
is removed from the food by evaporation.
Removal of water inhibits growth of
microorganisms and retards the activity of
enzymes. It is important to remember that
dehydration does not improve the quality ,
so only fresh, top-quality foods should be
used.
8
CONVECTION DEFROST
With temperature control off, air is circulated
by a motorized fan in the rear of the oven.
The fan accelerates natural defrosting of the
food without heat. To avoid sickness and
food waste, do not allow defrosted food to
remain in the oven for more than two hours.
Using Your Range
Lighting the Burners
Surface Burners-Automatic Re-ignition
To light the surface burners, turn the appropriate control knob counter
clockwise to any position. This control is both a gas valve and an electric
switch. Burners will ignite at any “on” position with the automatic
reignition system. If the flame goes out for any reason, the burners will
automatically re-ignite if the gas is still flowing. When gas is permitted to
flow to the burners, the electric igniters start sparking. On all surface
igniters you should hear a “clicking” sound. If you do not, turn off the
control and check that the unit is plugged in and that the fuse or circuit
breaker is not blown or tripped.
Within a few moments, enough gas will have
traveled to the burner to be able to light. When
the burner lights, turn the burner control to any
position to adjust the flame size.
Setting the proper height for the desired
cooking process and selected utensil will result
in superior cooking performance, while also
saving time and energy.
9
Surface Cooking Tips
•Use low or medium flame heights when cooking in utensils that are
poor conductors of heat, such as glass, ceramic, and cast-iron.
Reduce the flame height until it covers approximately 1/3 of the
utensil diameter. This will ensure more even heating within the utensil
and reduce the likelihood of burning or scorching the food.
•Reduce the flame if it is extending beyond the bottom of the utensil.
A flame that extends along the sides of the utensil is potentially
dangerous, heats the utensil handle and kitchen instead of the food,
and wastes energy.
•Reduce the flame height to the minimum level necessary to perform
the desired cooking process. Remember that food cooks just as
quickly at a gentle boil as it does at a rolling boil. Maintaining a
higher boil than is necessary wastes energy, cooks away moisture, and
causes a loss in food flavor and nutrient level.

Griddle/Simmer Plate, Bake Burner, Infrared Burner
Turning the thermostat counter clockwise to any “on” position activates
a glo-bar igniter and opens an electromechanical valve in the system to
start the gas valve. The griddle has a power “ON” light which glows
when the griddle thermostat is turned on. The light cycles on and off
with the burner. It is not possible to use both the infrared burner and
the bake burners at the same time. The design of the system will not
permit this, both for control of bake/broiler and for safety of use.
Griddle/Simmer Plate Operation
•Turn the griddle control knob to desired temperature setting.
•Always turn off when not in use, or lower the heat between cooking
loads.
Cooking Tips
•Preheat griddle at the desired temperature. Wait until light cycles off
for indication that the desired temperature has been reached and the
griddle is preheated.
•Use liquid cooking oil, cooking sprays, or butter for eggs, pancakes,
French toast, fish and sandwiches. This will help to reduce sticking.
Meats usually have enough natural oils.
•Remove food particles with a metal spatula during cooking to make
the cleanup easier and to avoid including those particles in the food.
•Do not overheat the griddle. Turn it off when not in use, or lower
heat between cooking loads.
•After using and cleaning the griddle, the surface should be wiped with
a light film of cooking oil to protect the finish from rust and corrosion.

Wok Operation (If applicable)
Using the Trivet Grate
(Center Wok Grate)
The trivet grate converts the large
burner grate to a grate suitable
for use with large stock pots. To
use the trivet grate, place the
small grate in the center of the
large grate. Turn the trivet grate
until the feet on the trivet grate
rests inside the notches located
on the center ring of the large
grate.

Grill Operation
•Turn on ventilator (separate product).
•Turn control knob to HI.
•Preheat on HI for 5 to 10 minutes.
•Place food on grill, cook as desired.
Grill Cooking Tips
•When grilling chicken, roasts, well done steaks or chops and thick
pieces of meat, sear on HI. Then, reduce the heat setting to prevent
excessive flare-up. This will allow the food to cook through without
burning the outside.
•After steaks, chops, or hamburgers have been allowed to sear for
approximately 1 minute, you may slide a spatula under the meat and
turn it approximately 90° so that a waffle pattern will be seared onto
the food.
•Use a metal spatula instead of tongs or a fork to turn the meat. A
spatula will not puncture the meat allowing juices to escape.
•Turn the meat over only once. Juices are lost when steaks, chops or
hamburgers are turned several times. The best time to turn the meat
is after the juices have begun to bubble to the surface.
•To test for doneness, make a small slash in the center of the meat, not
the edge. This will prevent loss of juices.
•Occasionally there may be flare-ups or flames above the grill due to
drops of fat falling onto the flame spreader. It is normal to have some
flare-up during grilling. Use a long handled spatula to move food to
another area until the flames subside.

Oven Operation
Temperature Controls
Each oven has a temperature control dial.
The control can be set at any temperature
from 150°F to 550°F, or broil. Always be
sure the controls are in the “Off” position
when the oven is not in use.
Natural Airflow Baking/ Convection Baking
Preheating
Preheating the oven is not necessary when using temperatures below
250°F. For best results, it is extremely important that you preheat the
oven when baking cakes and other items that have critical baking
temperatures. After the temperature control has been set, the Oven
Indicator light goes out when the oven reaches that temperature.
Preheating takes no longer than 10-15 minutes.
16
Natural Airflow Baking
This conventional baking/roasting is particularly suitable for dishes which
require a high temperature. Many cookbooks contain recipes to be
cooked in the conventional manner. This type of baking is only
recommended for single-rack baking.
Convection Baking
For all convection functions, the convection fan switch on the right side
of the control panel must be turned “ON”.
Convection baking is the process of cooking food with a flow of heated
air circulating throughout the oven cavity. The even circulating of this air
equalizes the temperature throughout the oven cavity and eliminates the
hot and cold spots found in conventional ovens. This feature can make a
significant difference in foods prepared in the oven. A major benefit of
convection baking is the ability to prepare food in quantity. The uniform
air circulation makes this possible . . . a feature not possible in a standard
oven. With this heating system, the air is distributed evenly throughout
the oven by the hot air fan. The heat therefore reaches the food to be
baked or roasted more quickly. With this heating method, foods can be
baked and roasted at the same time with minimal taste transfer, even
when different dishes are involved, such as cakes, fish, or meat. The hot
air system is especially economical when thawing frozen food.
Rack Positions
Each convection oven is equipped with three tilt-proof racks, and each
convectional oven is equipped with two-tilt proof racks. All ranges have
five rack positions and the 24” deep models have an additional 6th rack
position. Position 5 or 6 (depending on the model) is the farthest from
the oven bottom. Position 1 is the closest to the oven bottom. The racks
can be easily removed and arranged at various levels. For best results
with conventional baking, do not use more than one rack at a time. It is
also recommended when using two racks, to bake with the racks on
position 4 and 2.

To Bake:
1. Arrange the oven racks in the desired position BEFORE heating the
oven. If cooking on two racks at the same time, use rack positions 2
and 4.
2. Set the Temperature Control to the desired temperature.
3. Place the food in the oven after the Oven Indicator light goes out.
Pan Placement Tips
•When using large (15” x 13” [38 cm x 33 cm]) flat pans or trays that
cover most of the rack, rack positions 2 or 3 produce the best results.
•Stagger pans in opposite directions when two racks and several pans
are used. No pan should be directly above another.
•Allow 1 1/2” to 2” (3.8 cm to 5.1 cm) of air space around all sides of
each pan for even air circulation.
•When baking on more
than one rack, it is
recommended to use the
2nd and 4th position for
more consistent even
baking.
18
Baking Tips
•As a general rule, to convert conventional recipes to convection
recipes, reduce the temperature by 25°F and the cooking time by
approximately 10 to 15%.
•Some recipes, especially those that are homemade, may require
adjustment and testing when converting from standard to convection
modes. If unsure how to convert a recipe, begin by preparing the
recipe in conventional bake. After achieving acceptable results, follow
the convection guidelines listed for the similar food type. If the food
is not prepared to your satisfaction during the first convection trial,
adjust only one recipe variable at a time (cooking time, rack position,
or temperature) and repeat the convection test. Continue adjusting
one recipe variable at a time until satisfactory results are achieved.
•Make sure the oven racks are in the desired positions before you turn
the oven on.
•For best results, always preheat the oven.
•Do not open the oven door frequently during baking. If you must
open the door, the best time is during the last quarter of the baking
time.
•Bake to shortest time suggested and check for doneness before
adding more time. For baked goods, a stainless steel knife placed in
the center of the product should come clean when done.
•Use good quality baking pans and sizes recommended in the recipe;
warped, dented, or burned pans should not be used.
•Shiny metal pans are preferred for baking items such as cakes,
cookies, and muffins because they produce light, golden crusts due to
heat being reflected by the metal.
•Glass pans may also be used for cake baking. Reduce the oven
temperature by 25 degrees when using a glass pan, but bake for the
same amount of time called for in the recipe.
•Pies are best baked in pans which absorb and hold heat. Glass,
enamel, dull-finished metal, and porcelain enamel finish give pies a
golden brown crust.

Solving Baking Problems
Conventional/Convection Roasting Tips
Baking problems can occur for many reasons. Check the chart for the
causes and remedies for the most common problems. It is important to
remember that the temperature setting and cooking times you are
accustomed to using with your previous oven may vary slightly from
those required with this oven. If you find this to be true, it is necessary
for you to adjust your recipes and cooking times accordingly.
Always use the broiler pan and grid supplied with each oven. The hot air
must be allowed to circulate around the item being roasted. Do not
cover what is being roasted. Convection roasting seals in juices quickly
for a moist, tender product. Poultry will have a light, crispy skin, and
meats will be browned, not dry or burned. Cook meats and poultry
directly from the refrigerator. There is no need for meat or poultry to
stand at room temperature.

•Always roast meats fat side up. No basting is required when the fat
side is up. Do not add water to the pan, as this will cause a steamed
effect. Roasting is a dry-heat process.
•Poultry should be placed breast side up on the grid in the broiler pan.
Brush poultry with melted butter, margarine, or oil before and during
roasting.
•For convection roasting, do not use pans with tall sides, as this will
interfere with the circulation of heated air over the food.
•If using a cooking bag, foil tent, or other cover, use conventional
baking rather than convection.
•When using a meat thermometer, insert the probe halfway into the
center of the thickest portion of the meat. (For poultry, insert the
thermometer probe between the body and leg into the thickest part
of the inner thigh.) The tip of the probe should not touch bone, fat,
or gristle to ensure an accurate reading. Check the meat
thermometer 2/3 of the way through the recommended roasting time.
After reading the thermometer once, insert it 1/2” (1.3 cm) further into
the meat, then take a second reading. If the second reading registers
below the first, continue cooking the meat.
•Roasting times always vary according to the size, shape, and quality of
meats and poultry. Less tender cuts of meat are best prepared in the
conventional bake setting and may require moist cooking techniques.
Remove roasted meats from the oven when the thermometer registers
5°F to 10°F (-15°C to -12°C) lower than the desired doneness. The
meat will continue to cook after removal from the oven. Allow roasts
to stand 15 to 20 minutes after roasting in order to make carving
easier.

Infrared Conventional Broiling
The broiler is an in-the-oven infrared broiler design-certified for
residential use. The method preferred by professional cooks to sear in
the nutrition, flavors, and juices of meat, poultry, and fish is now possible
in the home. The infrared broiler cooks up to 50% faster than other
methods. Its intense, penetrating heat produces a more attractive,
professional finish. The broil burner heats the metal screen located at the
top of the oven until it glows. The glowing screen produces the infrared
heat, searing the outside of broiled food and sealing in the juices.
Broiling is a dry-heat cooking method using direct or indirect radiant
heat. It is used for small individualized cuts such as steaks, chops, and
patties. Broiling is most successful for cuts 1-2 inches (2.54-5.1 cm) thick.
Conventional broiling is also more suitable for flat pieces of meat.
Infrared Convection Broiling
Convection broiling has the advantage of broiling food slightly quicker
than conventional. Convection broiling of meats produces better
results especially for extra thick cuts. The meat sears on the outside
and retains more juices and natural flavor inside with less shrinkage.
Rack Positions:
The broiler uses infrared heat rays to help cook the food. Because
these rays can travel only in straight lines, the effective cooking area of
the broiler is reduced when using the higher rack positions. At high
rack positions, the rays cannot
reach all corners of the broiler
grid, so larger pieces of meat
might not broil sufficiently at
15%
the outer edges. Position 6 is
20%
the closest to the broiler and
35%
45%
position 1 is the closest to the
65%
oven bottom. The effective
95%
cooking areas on the broiler
grid for each rack position are
as follows:
26
To use the Infrared Broiler:
1. Arrange the oven racks in the desired position.
2. Center food on cold broiler pan and grid supplied with your oven.
Place broiler pan in oven and close the door.
3. Set the Temperature Control dial to BROIL.
Broiling Tips
•Always use a broiler pan and grid for broiling. They are designed to
provide drainage of excess liquid and fat away from the cooking
surface to help prevent spatter, smoke and fire.
•Place broiler pan with food in recommended rack position.
•To keep meat from curling, slit fatty edge.
•Brush chicken and fish with butter several times as they broil to
prevent drying out. To prevent sticking, lightly grease broiler grid.
•Broil on first side for slightly more than half the recommended time,
season and turn. Season second side just before removing.
•Always pull rack out to stop position before turning or removing food.
•Use tongs or a spatula to turn meats. Never pierce meat with a fork
as this allows the juices to escape.
•Remove the broiler pan from the oven when you remove the food.
Drippings will bake onto the pan if it is left in the heated oven after
broiling. While pan is hot, place damp paper towel over grid. Drizzle
with liquid dishwashing detergent and pour water over grid. This will
make cleaning of the pan easier, or the broiler pan can be lined with
aluminum foil to make cleaning easier. Be sure the foil extends up the
side of the pan. Although it is not recommended, the grid can also
be covered with foil. Be sure to slit openings to conform with the
openings in the grid so melted fat can drain through to prevent
spattering, smoking or possibility of grease fire.

•Place the frozen food on a baking sheet.
•Set Temperature Control “OFF”.*
•Turn the convection fan switch “ON”.
*IMPORTANT:
Do not turn the Temperature Control on. Turning the convection fan on
will accelerate the natural defrosting of the food without the heat.
*WARNING:
To avoid sickness and food waste, do not allow defrosted food to
remain in the oven for more than two hours.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Any piece of equipment works better and lasts longer when maintained
properly and kept clean. Cooking equipment is no exception. Your
rangetop must be kept clean and maintained properly. Make sure all
controls are in the “OFF” position before cleaning. Disconnect power if
you are going to clean thoroughly with water.
Open Surface Burners (If applicable)
Wipe up spill-overs as soon as possible after they occur and before
they get a chance to burn in and cook solid. In the event of a spillover, follow these steps:
1. Allow the burner and grate to cool to a safe temperature level.
2. Lift off the open burner grates.
3. If the spill is contained in the bowl of the grate support, just remove
the bowl and clean in warm soapy water.
4. Lift the grate support off.
5. Wash these parts in hot, soapy water and rinse clean.
6. If the spill has gone lower than the grate supports, draw out the
drip pan and wash with hot, soapy water.
29
If ports on the burners are clogged, clean with a straight pin. DO NOT
enlarge or distort the ports. DO NOT use a toothpick to clean the ports.
When replacing burner caps, carefully align the tabs underneath the cap
with the outside edge of burner. Make sure burner cap is level.
Occasionally check the burner for proper size and shape. If flames lift off
ports, are yellow, or are noisy when turned on, you may need to clean
the burners or call a qualified technician for adjustment.
Sealed Surface Burners (If applicable)
Wipe up spill-overs as soon as possible after they occur and before
they get a chance to burn in and cook solid. In the event of a spill-over,
follow these steps:
1. Allow the burner and grate to cool to a safe temperature level.
2. Lift off the burner grate. Wash in warm, soapy water.
3. Remove the burner cap and burner head and clean, per instructions
below.
4. Wipe up an spills which remains on the sealed top surface.
5. Replace burner cap, burner head and grates after drying thoroughly.
Burner Caps
The surface burner caps should be routinely removed and cleaned.
Always clean the burner caps after a spill over. Keeping the burner caps
clean will prevent improper ignition and uneven flames. To clean, pull
burner cap straight up from the burner base. Wipe off surface burner
caps with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth after each use. Use a a
non-abrasive cleanser such as Bon AmiTM and a soft brush or soft Scotch
BriteTM pad for cooked-on foods. Dry thoroughly after cleaning. For best
cleaning and to avoid possible rusting, do not clean in dishwasher or
self-cleaning oven. When replacing burner caps, carefully align the tabs
underneath the cap with the outside edge of burner. Make sure burner
cap is level.
Control Knobs
MAKE SURE THE CONTROL KNOBS POINT TO THE OFF POSITION
BEFORE REMOVING. Pull the knobs straight off. Wash in detergent and
warm water. Do not soak knobs. Dry completely and replace by pushing
firmly onto stem. DO NOT USE any cleaners containing ammonia or
abrasives. They could remove the graphics from the knob.
Control Panel
DO NOT USE any cleaners containing ammonia or abrasives. They could
remove the graphics from the control panel. Use hot, soapy water and a
soft clean cloth.
Note: When replacing burner head, arrow must be pointing towards
back of range.
Sealed Burner Aluminum Base (If applicable)
The aluminum base should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water at
the end of each cooling period. Do not use steel wool, abrasive cloths,
cleanser, or powders. To remove encrusted materials, soak the area with
at hot towel to loosen the material, then use a wooden or nylon spatula.
Do not use a metal knife, spatula, or any other material tool to scrape the
aluminum base. NOTE: For stubborn stains, use non-abrasive cleanser
such as Bon AmiTM and a soft brush or soft Scotch BriteTM pad.
If ports on the open or sealed burners are clogged, clean with a straight
pin. DO NOT enlarge or distort the ports. DO NOT use a toothpick to
clean the ports. When replacing burner head, carefully align the tabs
underneath the cap with the outside edge of burner. Make sure the tabs
are not aligned with the igniter and the burner cap is level.

Griddle/Simmer Plate
1. After using the griddle, always remove the drip pan located below it
by pulling the drip pan toward you. The drip pan needs to be
cleaned after each use of the griddle. Cooked-off grease will drain
from the griddle through the drain tube and accumulate in the drip
pan. Wash in hot soapy water or with an antibacterial cleaner. The
drip pan needs to be cleaned after each use. If grease is permitted
to accumulate, fire hazard could occur, since the griddle burners are
directly above the pan.
2. Rub the surface of a hot griddle with unsalted solid shortening,
vegetable oil or spray it with a non-stick cooking spray. Thoroughly
wipe it with a burlap or another rough cloth to remove food
particles and other residue.
3. Stubborn spots may be removed by rubbing the surface with a
rough grained nylon scrubbing pad with cooking oil. If necessary,
flush the surface of a warm griddle (200°F/93°C) with club soda and
wipe over entire surface with a paper towel. Coat lightly with
cooking oil.
4. Special griddle cleaners are commercially available which may be
used to remove heavy soil build-up. Follow manufacturer’s directions
exactly. Rinse the griddle with room temperature club soda after
using these cleaners. Dry and coat lightly with cooking oil. Use
griddle stones only when absolutely necessary and then with
extreme caution. Wipe away any griddle-stone dust and food
particles and coat lightly with cooking oil.
5. Using hot soapy water to clean the griddle will remove the cookedin seasoning and will require re-seasoning by coating lightly with
cooking oil.
6. Never flood a hot griddle with cold water! This promotes griddle
warping and can cause the griddle plate to crack if continued over a
period of time.
Grill
The grill grate may be cleaned immediately after cooking is complete
and before turning off the flame. Wearing a barbecue mitt to protect
your hand from heat, use a soft bristle barbecue brush to scrub the grill
grate. Dip the brush frequently in a bowl of water. Steam is created as
the water contacts the hot grate. The steam assists the cleaning process
by softening the food particles. For thorough cleaning of the grill grate,
soak 15 to 30 minutes in a hot water and detergent solution. After
soaking, scrub with a soft scotch brite pad. DO NOT USE a steel wool
pad or abrasive cleaners. They could damage the porcelain finish.
To disassemble for thorough cleaning, remove parts after they have
cooled in the following order:
1. Grill grates
2. Smoke
generator
plates
3. Grill frame
(Grill burner
- Do Not
Remove)
4. Grill burner
shield
5. Heat
deflector
shields
Clean greasy parts with a household grease solvent such as household
ammonia and water. If necessary, a soap filled steel wool pad can be
used on the grill frame shield, grill burner, and grill heat deflector.
After using the grill, always remove the drip pan located below it by
pulling the drip pan toward you. The drip pan needs to be cleaned after
each use of the griddle. Cooked-off grease will drain from the griddle
through the drain tube and accumulate in the drip pan. Wash in hot
soapy water or with an antibacterial cleaner. The drip pan needs to be
cleaned after each use. If grease is permitted to accumulate, fire hazard
could occur, since the grill burners are directly above the pan.

Brass Parts
CAUTION: All brass special ordered parts are coated with an epoxy
coating. DO NOT USE BRASS OR ABRASIVE CLEANERS ON THE BRASS
OPTION PARTS. All brass parts should be wiped regularly with hot soapy
water.
Stainless Steel Parts
All stainless steel parts should be wiped regularly with hot, soapy water
at the end of each cooling period and with liquid stainless steel cleaner
when soapy water will not do the job. Do not use steel wool, abrasive
cloths, abrasive cleaners, or powders. If necessary to scrape stainless
steel to remove encrusted materials, soak the area with hot towels to
loosen the material, then use a wooden or nylon spatula or scraper. Do
not use a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape stainless
steel. For occasional heavy cleaning use, a cleaner such as Liquid Zud
can be used according to package directions. Do not permit citrus or
tomato juice to remain on stainless steel surface, as citric acid will
permanently discolor stainless steel. Wipe up any spills immediately.
Glass Surface
Clean with detergent and warm water. Glass cleaner can be used to
remove fingerprints. If using glass cleaner ammonia, make sure that it
does not run down on exterior door surface.
Wok Cast Iron Burner (If applicable)
For proper lighting and performance of the burner, keep the electric
igniter and burner ports clean. It is necessary to clean these only when
the flame does not burn blue completely around all rings of the burner,
when there is a severe spillover or when the burner does not light, even
though the electric spark igniter sparks. Clean the burner by scraping off
burned on food soil. Use a wire, a straightened paper clip, or needle to
clean the ports. Do not use a toothpick; it could break off in the port. Be
sure the venturi tube remains dry.

There is no special care required for the infrared broiler. It is designed as
self-contained unit, and no adjustments or cleaning are possible. Do not
attempt to clean it. Its own operation burns off any impurities which may
condense on it. Clean the broiler pan and grid after each use with
detergent and hot water. For stubborn spots, use a soap-filled steel wool
pad. The broiler pan and grid is also dishwasher safe.
Oven Racks
Clean with detergent and hot water. Stubborn spots can be scoured
with a soap-filled steel wool pad.
Replacing Interior Oven Lights
CAUTION: DISCONNECT THE ELECTRIC POWER AT THE MAIN FUSE
OR CIRCUIT BREAKER BEFORE REPLACING BULB.
1. Unscrew glass light cover.
2. Use an oven mitt during bulb
removal to protect your hand in
case the bulb breaks.
3. Replace the bulb with a 120 volt,
40-watt appliance bulb.
4. Replace the light cover
5. Reconnect power at the main fuse
or circuit breaker.
Power Failure
If power failure occurs, the electric ignitors will not work. The range
surface burners can still be used, but only when the burners are lit
manually with a match. The griddle cannot be used at all. Do not attempt
to operate the oven. Make sure the oven control is in the “OFF” position.
Due to safety considerations and the possibility of personal injury in
attempting to light and extinguish the burner, the grill should, under no
circumstances, be used during a power failure. The grill burner control
should always remain in the “OFF” position during a power failure.
Momentary power failure can occur unnoticed. The range is affected only
when the power is interrupted. When it comes back on, the range will
function properly without any adjustments. A “brown-out” may or may
not affect range operation, depending on how severe the power loss is.
