Do not wear loose or hanging garments when
using the range. They could ignite if they
touch a hot surface burner and you could be
burned.
Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp
potholders on surface burners may result in
burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch
surface burners. Do not use a towel or bulky
cloth for a potholder. It could catch on fire.
Keep range vents unobstructed.
Do not heat unopened containers. They could
explode. The hot contents could cause burns
and container particles could cause injury.
l
the cooktop
Turn pan handles inward, but not over other
surface burners. This will help reduce the
chance of bums, igniting of flammable
materials, and spills due to bumping of the
pan.
Do not use decorative covers or trivets over
the surface burners.
When
l
using
Make sure the utensils you use are large
enough to contain food and avoid boilovers
and spillovers. Heavy splattering or spillovers
left on a range can ignite and burn you. Pan
size is especially important in deep fat frying.
Check to be sure glass cooking utensils are
safe for use on the range. Only certain types
of glass, glass-ceramic, ceramic, eatthenware or other glazed utensils are suitable for
cooktops without breaking due to the sudden
change in temperature.
Never leave surface burners unattended at
high heat settings. A boilover could result
and cause smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite.
using
the oven
Always position the oven rack(s) in desired
location while oven is cool.
Use care when opening oven door. Let hot
air or steam escape before removing or
replacing food.
Grease
l
Grease is flammable. Do not allow grease to
collect around cooktop or in vents. wipe
spillovers immediately.
l
l
Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick
up a flaming pan. Smother flaming pan by
covering with a well-fried 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.
Care
l
l
l
and cleaning
Small amounts of formaldehyde and carbon
monoxide are given off in the Self-Cleaning
cycle from fiberglass insulation and food
decomposition. Significant exposure to these
substances can cause cancer or reproductive
harm. Exposure can be minimized by venting
with a hood or open window and wiping out
excess food spills prior to self-cleaning.

To obtain the best cooking results possible, you must operate your range properly. This section gives
you important information for efficient and safe use of your range.
Using
the surface
burners
Your range is equipped with electric ignitors.
Electric ignitors automatically light the burners
each time they are used.
Push in control knoba and turn them to the
LITE position. The clicking sound is the ignitor
sparking. Visually check that burner hao lit.
To stop the clicking sound after the burner
lights, turn the control knob to the desired
setting. The control knob has stops for HI, MED
and LOW. However, you can set the control knob
anywhere between HI and OFF.
Surface

Burn, Fire, Explosion and
Product Damage Hazard
Burner flame should not extend beyond the
edge of the cookfng utensil. The flame can
burn you and cause poor cooldng results.
Be sure all control knobs are turned to OFF
when you are not cooking. Someone could
be burned or a fire could start if a burner is
accidentally left ON.
If the flame should go out while cooking, or
if there is a strong gas odor, turn the
burners OFF. Wait five minutes for the gas
odor to disappear before relighting burner.
If gas odor is still present, see safety note
on page 3. Failure to follow these precautions could result in explosion or fire.
Do not leave an empty utensil, or one
which has boiled dry, on a hot surface
burner. The utensil can overheat and may
damage the utensil or cookfng product.
Cookware
tips
There is no one brand of cooking utensil that is
best for all people. Knowing something about pan
materials and construction will help you select the
correct cooking utensils for your needs.
l NOTE: For best resulta
and greater fuel eff iciency, use onfy flat-bottomed utensils that
make good contact with the surface burners.
Utensils with rounded, warped, ridged (porcelain enamel-ware) or dented bottoms could
cause severe overheating, which damages the
utensil and/or surface burner.
Woks, canners and teakettles with flat
bottoms suitable for use on your cooktop are
now available in most stores that sell
housewares.
l The pan should have straight sides and a tightfitting lid.
l Choose
medium to heavy gauge (thickness)
pans that are fairly lightweight.
l The pan material
(metal or glass) affects how
fast heat transfers from the surface burner
through the pan material and how evenly heat
spreads over the pan bottom. Choose pans that
provide the best cooking results.
l Handier
should be made of a sturdy, heatresistant material and be securely attached to
the pan.
l Pans should be easy to clean. Check to be
sure there are no crevices, rough edges or
areas where food might collect.
l Be sure pans do not tip, whether they are full
or empty.
l Use utensils
only as they were intended to be
used. Follow pan instructions. This is very
important for glass cookware because some
should be used only in the oven. Other pans
are marked as flameware and may be used on
the surface burners.
Home
canning
information
The large diameter of most water-bath or
pressure canners combined with high heat
settings for long periods of time can cause
damage to the cooktop.
To protect your range:
l For best resuits,
use a canner which can be
centered over the surface burner.
l Do not piace
canner on two surface burners at
the same time. Too much heat will build up and
will damage the cooktop.
l Start with hot water.
This reduces the time the
control is set on high. Reduce heat setting to
lowest position needed to keep water boiling.
Positioning
racks
and pans
For baking/roasting
with one rack., place the
rack so the top of the food will be centered in the
oven.
Rack placement for specific foods:
FOOD
RACK POSlTlON
Frozen pies, large roasts,
turkeys
1st or 2nd rack
guide from bottom
Angel and bundt cakes,
most quick breads, yeast
breads, casseroles, meats
2nd rack guide
from bottom
Cookies, biscuits, muffins,
cakes, nonfrozen pies
2nd or 3rd rack
guide from bottom
When baking on two racks, arrange racks on
first and third rack guides from bottom.
NOTE: For recommended rack placement when
broiling, see “Broiling rack position chart” on
page 16.
6th oven
(roasting
rack position
rack)
When roasting food too large to be placed in
oven with rack in lowest position, place rack on
bottom of oven.
For proper roasting, follow these guidelines:
l The rack must be level.
l Use adequate
amount of liquid (meat juices or
water) so food does not get overdone.
l Do not try to pull rack out over door. Rack will
be at the same level as door when door is
opened.
6th oven rack position
Personal Injury Hazard
l Always
position oven rack(s) in desired
location before turning oven on. Be sure
the rack(s) is level.
l If rack(s) must be moved while oven is
hot, use potholders or oven mitts to
protect hands.
l Do not place items on the open oven
door.
l Be careful when installing
and removing
large food items from sixth rack position.
Food will be close to hot surfaces, including
oven bottom and sides.
Failure to follow the above precautions
may result in personal injury.
For best air circulation
Hot air must circulate around the pans in the oven
for even heat to reach all parts of the oven. This
results in better baking.
l Place the pans so that one is not directly over
the other.
l For best results,
allow 1G-2 inches (4-5 cm)
of space around each pan and between pans
and oven walls. There must be a minimum
space of 1 inch (2.5 cm).
Use the following as a guide to determine where
to place the pans.
One pan
Place in the center of the oven rack.
Two pans
Place in opposite corners of the oven rack
Three or four pans
Place in opposite comers on each oven rack.
Stagger pans so no pan is directly over another.
NOTE: “Oven peeking” may cause heat loss,
longer cooking times and unsatisfactory baking or
roasting results. Use a reliable kitchen timer to
keep track of the cooking time.

tips
Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling. They
are designed to drain excess liquid and fat
away from the cooking surface to help prevent
spatter, smoke or fire.
lf you broil small quantities, you may want to
use a small broiler pan. They are available in
the housewares section of many department
stores.
For best broiling results, preheat at HI” for
5 minutes. Do not preheat with broiler pan in
place.
Broiling rack position determines how the
burner cooks your food. The lower the position,
the more broiler grid area covered. See
“Broiling rack position chart” on page 16 for
more information.
To sear meat, place broiler pan at one of the
higher rack positions so that meat is very near
the flame.
l
l
l
l
Small steaks may be broiled in the higher rack
positions.
To cook large steaks and other thick cuts of
meat well done, move them to a lower rack
position after searing.
Refer to a broiling chart in a reliable cookbook
for correct broiling times.
After broiling, remove the broiler pan from the
oven when you remove the food. Drippings will
bake on the pan if you leave it in the heated
oven.
15
Fire Hazard
l Place meat the correct distance
from the
burner. Meat placed too close to the burner
may spatter, smoke, burn or catch fire
during broiling.
l To ensure adequate
grease drainage, do
not use cookie sheets or similar pans for
1 broiling. Also, covering the broiler grid with
1 foil is not recommended. Poor drainage of
grease may result in fire.

Energy
saving
tips
Although the energy used for cooking is usually a
very small percentage of the total energy used in
the home, cooking energy can be used efficiently.
Here are some tips to help you save energy
when using your cooking product.
l Use pans with flat bottoms,
straight sides and
tight-fitting lids.
l Cook
with a minimum of liquid or fat to help
shorten cooking time.
l Preheat
pans only when recommended and for
the shortest time possible.
l Start food on higher heat settings,
then set
surface burner control on low or off to finish
cooking. Use retained heat for cooking when
possible.
l Use the more efficient surface burners instead
of the oven when possible.

The Self-Cleaning cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning the oven
interior. Like with the other functions of your range, you operate the Self-Cleaning cycle with the easyto-use control. Please review the instructions in this section to keep your oven spotless.
How the cycle
works
The Seff-Cleaning cycle uses very high heat to
burn away soil and grease. During the cycle, the
oven gets much hotter than it does for normal
bakfng or broiling. This high heat breaks up the
soil or grease and bums it away.
We recommend a 3-hour Self-Cleaning cycle.
However, you can adjust the cycle time to the
amount of soil in your oven. You can set the cycle
anywhere between 2 and 4 hours. (See “Setting
the controls” on page 28.)
The graph at the right is representative of a
normal, 3-hour Self-Cleaning cycle. Note that the
heating stops when the 3-hour setting is up, but it
takes longer for the oven to cool enough to
unlock

NOTE: You can clean the broiler pan and grid
in the oven if you have first removed most of
the soil by hand-cleaning or a dishwasher. if
most of the soil is not removed, too much
smoking will occur.
Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This will
help reduce smoke during the cleaning cycle.
Remove the oven recks from the oven if you
want them to remain shiny. You can clean the
oven racks in the Self-Cleaning cycle, but they
will become harder to slide. (See page 34.) If
you clean racks in the Self-Cleaning cycle,
place them on the 2nd and 4th rack guides.
(Guides are counted from bottom to top.)
Heat and odors are normal during the SelfCleaning cycle. Keep the kitchen well ventilated
by opening a window or by turning on a vent
hood or other kitchen vent during the cycle.

tips
Keep the kiichen well ventilated during the
Self-Cleaning cycle to help get rid of heat,
odors and smoke.
After the oven Is cool, wipe up any residue or
ash with a damp cloth or sponge. If any spots
remain, clean with a mild abrasive cleanser or
mildly abrasive pad.
Clean the oven before it gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning a very soiled oven takes longer and
results in more smoke than usual.
if the Setf-Cleaning
cycle does not get the
oven as clean as you expected, the cycle
may not have been set long enough or you
may not have prepared the oven properly. Set
the Self-Cleaning cycle longer the next time
and hand-clean areas noted on page 27.

1. Make sure all surface burners are off and the
surrounding parts are cool.
2. Lii off the surface burner grates.
3. Wash the grates with warm, soapy water or in
a dishwasher. Use a nonabrasive, plastic
scrubbing pad for cooked-on foods. Rinse
and dry well.
4. Replace burner grates.
Surface
burners
and cooktop
The range and burner box areas are specially
designed to make cleaning easier. Because the
four burners are sealed, cleanups are easy and
convenient.
To clean the cooktop, wipe with a damp
spongeanddry.
Product Damage Hazard
Do not remove the cooktop.
Doing so could result in product damage.
Cleaning
areas
the contoured
well
The contoured well is a recessed area located
around each burner. If spills occur in the contoured well section, blot up spill with a paper
towel. Wipe with a clean, damp sponge and dry.
Be careful when cleaning the cooktop area or
around the burner base. Cleaning utensils can
catch the ignitor and damage or break it. If this
part is damaged or broken, the surface burner will
not light. To protect the ignitor, leave the burner
cap in place.
32
Cleaning
the burners
The burner caps should be routinely removed
and cleaned. Always clean the burner caps after
a spillover. Keeping the burner caps clean will
prevent improper ignition and an uneven flame.
To clean, pull the burner cap straight up from
the burner base. Remove the trim ring (if
equipped) and burner pan. (Burner pan and trim
ring must be replaced over burner base before
replacing burner cap. Do not operate burners
without burner pan and trim ring in place.) Clean
burner cap, trim ring and burner pan with warm,
soapy water and a sponge. You can also clean
with a nonabrasive scrubbing pad or cleanser. Do
not clean burner cap, trim ring or burner pan in a
dishwasher or self-cleaning oven.
For proper flow of gas and ignition of the
burner, DO NOT ALLOW SPILLS, FOOD,
CLEANING AGENTS OR ANY OTHER
MATERIAL TO ENTER THE GAS TUBE OPENING. If the opening or the orifice, located inside
the opening, becomes soiled or clogged, use a
cotton swab or a paper towel to clean the area.
Gas must flow freely through the small hole in
the brass orifice for the burner to light properly.
This area must be free of any soil and be kept
protected from boilovers or spillovers. ALWAYS
keep the burner caps in place whenever a
surface burner is in use.
After cleaning the gas tube opening,
replace the burner cap, trim ring and burner pan.
Occasionally
check the burner flames for
proper size and shape as shown. A good flame is
blue in color. If flames lift off ports, are yellow, or
are noisy when turned off, you may need to clean
the burners. ff ports are clogged, clean with a
straight pin. Do not enlarge or distort port. Do not
use a wooden toothpick.
lf adjustment is
needed, call a qualified technician for service.
To replace burner cap, make sure cap is
properly aligned and leveled. Find the recessed
locating tabs on the burner cap (see illustration)
and place cap over the white ignitor in the burner
base.
Turn the burner on to determine if it will light. ff
the burner does not light after cleaning,
contact an authorized Whirlpool service technician. Do not service the sealed burner yoursetf.

Make sure oven and light bulb are cool
and power to the range has been turned
OFF before replacing the light bulb.
Failure to do so could result in electrical
shock or burns.
The bulb cover must be in place when
using the oven. The cover protects the
bulb from breaking, and from high oven
temperatures. Because bulb cover is
made of glass, be careful not to drop it.
Broken glass could cause injury.
To replace
the oven
light:
1. Unplug appliance or disconnect
at the main
electric power supply.
2. Remove the glass bulb cover in the back of
the oven by pushing the wire holder to the
side and pulling out bulb cover.
3. Remove the light bulb from its socket.
Replace the bulb with a 40-watt appliance
bulb.
4. Replace the bulb cover and snap the wire
holder into place. Plug in appliance or
reconnect at the main power supply.
NOTE: The oven light should not be used during
the Self-Cleaning cycle. Use during the SelfCleaning cycle will shorten the life of the bulb.
