COOKTOP USE
Cooktop Controls
WARNING
The left front burner is designed to give ultra-high power when it
is fully on. It can be used to rapidly bring liquid to a boil and to
cook large quantities of food.
Power Failure
In case of prolonged power failure, the surface burners can be lit
manually. Hold a lit match near a burner and turn knob
counterclockwise to IGNITE. After burner lights, turn knob to
setting.
Surface Burners
Fire Hazard
Do not let the burner flame extend beyond the
edge of the pan.
Turn off all controls when not cooking.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death or fire.
Electric igniters automatically light the surface burners when
control knobs are turned to IGNITE.
Before setting a control knob, place filled cookware on the grate.
Do not operate a burner using empty cookware or while the grate
is unoccupied.
IMPORTANT: Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and
ventilation air around the burner grate edges.
Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and the oven and
cooktop are cool. Do not use oven cleaners, bleach or rust
removers.
Burner cap: Always keep the burner cap in place when using a
surface burner. A clean burner cap will help prevent poor ignition
and uneven flames. Always clean the burner cap after a spillover
and routinely remove and clean the caps according to the
“General Cleaning” section.

2. Burner Ports
Burner ports: Check burner flames occasionally for proper size
and shape as shown above. A good flame is blue in color, not
yellow. Keep this area free of soil and do not allow spills, food,
cleaning agents or any other material to enter the burner ports.
To Clean:
1. Remove the burner cap from the burner base and clean
according to “General Cleaning” section.
2. Clean the gas tube opening with a damp cloth.
3. Clean clogged burner ports with a straight pin as shown. Do
not enlarge or distort the port. Do not use a wooden
toothpick. If the burner needs to be adjusted, contact a
trained repair specialist.
Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop. Aluminum and copper
may be used as a core or base in cookware. However, when used
as a base it can leave permanent marks on the cooktop or grates.
Cookware material is a factor in how quickly and evenly heat is
transferred, which affects cooking results. A nonstick finish has
the same characteristics as its base material. For example,
aluminum cookware with a nonstick finish will take on the
properties of aluminum.
Use the following chart as a guide for cookware material
characteristics.

Home Canning
When canning for long periods, alternate the use of surface
cooking areas, elements or surface burners between batches.
This allows time for the most recently used areas to cool.
■ Center the canner on the grate or largest surface cooking
area or element. Canners should not extend more than 1 in.
(2.5 cm) outside the cooking area.
■
Do not place canner on two surface cooking areas, elements
or surface burners at the same time.
■
On ceramic glass models, use only flat-bottomed canners.
■
On coil element models, the installation of a Canning Unit Kit
is recommended. If a kit is not installed, the life of the coil
element will be shortened. See “Assistance or Service” for
ordering instructions.
■
For more information, contact your local U.S. Government
Agricultural Department Extension Office. In Canada, contact
Agriculture Canada. Companies that manufacture home
canning products can also offer assistance.

Meat Thermometer
On models without a temperature probe, always rely on a meat
thermometer to determine doneness of meat and poultry. The
internal temperature, not appearance, is what counts. A meat
thermometer is not supplied with this appliance.
■ Insert the thermometer into the center of the thickest portion
of the meat or inner thigh or breast of poultry. The tip of the
thermometer should not touch fat, bone or gristle.
■
After reading the thermometer once, push it into the meat
¹⁄₂ in. (1.25 cm) more and read again. If the temperature
drops, cook the meat or poultry longer.

ACCUBAKE® DUO SYSTEM® Temperature Management
(on some models)
The ACCUBAKE DUO SYSTEM technology electronically
regulates the oven heat levels during preheat and bake to
maintain the most uniform temperature control.
Two temperature sensors will independently control the bake and
broil elements for optimal cooking results. The bake and broil
elements cycle on and off in intervals. The bake element will glow
red when cycling on, the broil element will not. This feature is
automatically activated when the oven is in use.
Before baking and roasting, position racks according to the
“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. When roasting, it is
not necessary to wait for the oven preheat conditioning time to
end before putting food in unless recommended in the recipe.
To Bake or Roast:
1. Press BAKE.
2. Press TEMP or TEMP/TIME “up” or “down” arrow pad to set
a temperature other than 350°F (175°C) in 5 degree amounts.
The bake range can be set between 170°F and 500°F (75°C
and 260°C).
When the oven temperature is greater than 170°F (77°C), no
preheat conditioning time will be shown in the display. The
preheat conditioning time will not change if the temperature is
reset before the countdown time ends.
3. Press START. The temperature can be changed after this
step. START does not need to be pressed again.
If baking and roasting while the minute timer is counting
down, the set temperature can be seen for 5 seconds by
pressing BAKE.
4. Press CANCEL or OFF/CANCEL when finished.
Broiling
Broiling uses direct radiant heat to cook food. Changing the
temperature when Custom Broiling allows more precise control
when cooking. The lower the temperature, the slower the
cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish
and poultry may cook better at lower broiling temperatures.
■ Use only the broiler pan and grid provided with the range. It is
designed to drain juices and help prevent spatter and smoke.
■
For proper draining, do not cover the grid with foil. The
bottom of the pan may be lined with aluminum foil for easier
cleaning.
■
Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit the remaining fat on
the edges to prevent curling.
■
Pull out oven rack to stop position before turning or removing
food. Use tongs to turn food to avoid the loss of juices. Very
thin cuts of fish, poultry or meat may not need to be turned.
■
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.
Preheating
After START is pressed, the oven will enter a timed preheat
conditioning. “PrE” (on some models) and the countdown time
will appear on the display. When the preheat conditioning time
ends, a tone will sound and the selected temperature will appear
on the display.
Preheat temperatures are affected by varying factors such as
room temperature and peak energy usage times. It is normal for
the temperature showing on the display and the actual oven
temperature to differ due to the cycling of the elements.
Waiting an additional 10 minutes, after the preheat conditioning
time ends, to put food in the oven is suggested when baking
foods with leavening ingredients, such as yeast, baking powder,
baking soda and eggs.
Choice Bake® Function
(on some models)
The CHOICE BAKE® function eliminates the top heat during oven
cooking. It is ideal for baking pies, casseroles and breads, and for
roasting foods that require longer and slower cook times such as
poultry and roasts.
Similar to the baking and roasting function, the bake elements or
burners cycle on and off at intervals during CHOICE BAKE®
cycle. However, the cycle duration for the broil element is much
shorter during CHOICE BAKE®, allowing less top browning of

The Warming Drawer is ideal for keeping hot cooked foods at
serving temperature. It may also be used for warming breads and
pastries.
Different types of food may be placed in the warming drawer at
the same time. For best results, do not hold foods longer than
one hour. For smaller quantities or heat-sensitive foods, such as
eggs, do not hold longer than 30 minutes.
Food must be at serving temperature before being placed in the
warming drawer. Breads, pastries, and fruit pies may be heated
from room temperature on the HI setting.
Remove food from plastic bags and place in oven-safe container.
Cover foods with a lid or aluminum foil.
Do not cover with plastic wrap.

RANGE CARE
Self-Cleaning Cycle
(on some models)
WARNING
Burn Hazard
Do not touch the oven during the
Self-Cleaning cycle.
Keep children away from oven during
Self-Cleaning cycle.
Failure to follow these instructions can result
in burns.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to
the fumes given off during the Self-Cleaning cycle. Exposure to
the fumes may result in death to certain birds. Always move birds
to another closed and well ventilated room.
Self-clean the oven before it becomes heavily soiled. Heavy soil
results in longer cleaning and more smoke.
Keep the kitchen well-ventilated during the Self-Cleaning cycle to
help get rid of heat, odors, and smoke.
Do not block the oven vent(s) during the Self-Cleaning cycle. Air
must be able to move freely. Depending on your model, see
“Oven Vent” or “Oven Vents” section.
Do not clean, rub, damage or move the oven door gasket. The
door gasket is essential for a good seal.
Prepare Oven:
■
Remove plastic items from the cooktop because they may
melt.
■
Remove all items from the storage drawer.
How the Cycle Works
IMPORTANT: The heating and cooling of porcelain on steel in the
oven may result in discoloring, loss of gloss, hairline cracks and
popping sounds.
The Self-Cleaning cycle uses very high temperatures, burning soil
to a powdery ash.
The oven is preset for a 3 hour 30 minute clean cycle, but the
time can be changed. Suggested clean times are 2 hours 30
minutes for light soil and between 3 hours 30 minutes and
4 hours 30 minutes for average to heavy soil.
Once the oven has completely cooled, remove ash with a damp
cloth. Do not wipe down any of the inside surfaces until the oven
has completely cooled down. Applying a cool damp cloth to the
inner door glass before it has completely cooled could result in
the glass breaking.
The oven light will not work during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
To Self-Clean:
Before self-cleaning, make sure the door is closed completely or
it will not lock and the cycle will not begin.
1. Press AUTO CLEAN.
2. Press the HR and MIN “up” or “down” arrow pad, or the
TEMP/TIME “up” or “down” arrow pad to set a clean time
other than 3 hours 30 minutes.
On models with style 1 series electronic oven controls (see
“Electronic Oven Controls” section), the oven can be set to a
clean time between 3 hours 15 minutes and 5 hours 15
minutes.
On models with style 2 series electronic oven controls (see
“Electronic Oven Controls” section), the oven can be set to a
clean time between 2 hours 30 minutes and 4 hours 30
minutes.
3. Press START/ENTER.
The oven door will automatically lock. “LOCKED” will appear
on the display (on some models), and on other models, the
ON, HEAT and DOOR LOCKED indicator lights will light up.
The door will not unlock until the oven cools.
When the cycle is complete and the oven cools, “End” will
appear on the oven display and “LOCKED” shown on the
display of some models will disappear. The indicator lights on
other models will go off.
■
Remove the broiler pan, grid, cookware and bakeware and,
on some models, the temperature probe from the oven.
■
Remove any foil from the oven because it may burn or melt,
damaging the oven.
4. Press CANCEL or OFF/CANCEL, or open the oven door to
clear the oven display.
■
Remove oven racks to keep them shiny and easy to slide.

To Delay Start Self-Clean (on some models):
■
Hand clean inside door edge and the 1½ in. (3.8 cm) area
around the inside oven cavity frame, being careful not to
move or bend the gasket. This area does not get hot enough
during self-cleaning to remove soil. Do not let water, cleaner,
etc. enter slots on door frame. Use a damp cloth to clean this
area.
■
Wipe out any loose soil to reduce smoke and avoid damage.
At high temperatures, foods react with porcelain. Staining,
etching, pitting or faint white spots can result. This will not
affect cooking performance.
Before delay starting Self-Clean, make sure the clock is set to the
correct time of day. See “Clock” section. Also, make sure the
