Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety
messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.”
These words mean:
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
DANGER
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow
instructions.
WARNING
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.
The Anti-Tip Bracket
The range will not tip during normal use. However, the range can tip if you apply too much force or weight to the open door without having
the anti-tip bracket fastened down properly.
WARNING

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
injury to persons, or damage when using the range, follow
basic precautions, including the following:
■ WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF
THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED BY
PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP DEVICES. TO CHECK
IF THE DEVICES ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE
RANGE FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET
SECURELY ATTACHED TO FLOOR OR WALL, AND
SLIDE RANGE BACK SO REAR RANGE FOOT IS
UNDER ANTI-TIP BRACKET.
■ CAUTION: Do not store items of interest to children in
cabinets above a range or on the backguard of a range –
children climbing on the range to reach items could be
seriously injured.
■ Proper Installation – Be sure the range is properly installed
and grounded by a qualified technician.
■ Never Use the Range for Warming or Heating the Room.
■ Do Not Leave Children Alone – Children should not be left
alone or unattended in area where the range is in use.
They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of
the range.
■ Wear Proper Apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn while using the range.
■ User Servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of the
range unless specifically recommended in the manual. All
other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
■ Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should
not be stored in an oven or near surface units.
■ Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires – Smother fire or flame
or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
■ Use Only Dry Potholders – Moist or damp potholders on
hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let
potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel
or other bulky cloth.
■ DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR
UNITS – Surface units may be hot even though they are
dark in color. Areas near surface units may become hot
enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch,
or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface
units or areas near units until they have had sufficient time
to cool. Among those areas are the cooktop and surfaces
facing the cooktop.
■ Use Proper Pan Size – The range 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.
■ Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat
Settings – Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite.
■ 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.
Protective Liners – Do not use aluminum foil to line surface
unit drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as suggested in
the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result
in a risk of electric shock, or fire.
■ Glazed Cooking Utensils – Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for range-top service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature.
■ 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.
■ Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements – Heating
elements should never be immersed in water.
■ Do Not Cook on Broken Cooktop – If cooktop should
break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the
broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact
a qualified technician immediately.
■ Clean Cooktop With Caution – If a wet sponge or cloth is
used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to
avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
■ Use Care When Opening Door – Let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
■ Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers – Build-up of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.
■ Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.
■ Placement of Oven Racks – Always place oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved
while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating
element in oven.
■ DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR
SURFACES OF OVEN – Heating elements may be hot even
though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of an oven
become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use,
do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials
contact heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until
they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the
appliance may become hot enough to cause burns – among
these surfaces are oven vent openings and surfaces near
these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors.
For self-cleaning ranges –
■ Do Not Clean Door Gasket – The door gasket is essential
for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage,
or move the gasket.
■ Do Not Use Oven Cleaners – No commercial oven cleaner
or oven liner protective coating of any kind should be used
in or around any part of the oven.
■ Clean Only Parts Listed in Manual.
■ Before Self-Cleaning the Oven – Remove broiler pan and
other utensils.
For units with ventilating hood –
■ Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently – Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.
■ When flambeing foods under the hood, turn the fan on.

Positioning Racks and Bakeware
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the porcelain finish,
do not place food or bakeware directly on the oven door or bottom.
To move a rack, pull it out to the stop position, raise the front edge,
and then lift out. Use the following illustration and charts as a
guide.
Bakeware
To cook food evenly, hot air must be able to circulate. Allow
2" (5 cm) of space around bakeware and oven walls. Make sure

Baking and Roasting
Precision Cooking™ System - Precise Bake
The Precise Bake system electronically regulates the oven heat
levels during preheat and bake to maintain a precise temperature
range 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
“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. When roasting, it is not
necessary to wait for the oven preheat cycle to end before putting
food in unless it is recommended in the recipe.
Preheating
When START is pressed, the oven will begin preheating. Once
170ºF (77ºC) is reached, the display temperature will increase as
the actual temperature of the oven increases. When the preheat
temperature is reached, a tone will sound, and the selected
temperature will appear on the display.
Broiling
Broiling uses direct radiant heat to cook food. Changing the
temperature when 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.
■ For best results, use a broiler pan and grid. It is designed to
drain juices and help avoid spatter and smoke.
Preheat the oven for 2 minutes before putting food in unless
recommended in the recipe. Position food on grid in a broiler pan,
then place it in the center of the oven rack. Close the door to the
broil stop position to ensure proper broiling temperature.
If you would like to purchase a broiler pan, one may be ordered.
Please refer to the cover for contact information. Ask for Part
Number 4396923.
Convection Cooking
During convection cooking, the bake, broil, and convection
elements cycle on and off in intervals to maintain the oven
temperature, while the fan circulates the hot air.
If the oven door is opened during convection cooking, the fan will
turn off immediately. It will come back on when the oven door is
closed.
EvenAir™ True Convection (on some models)
When convection baking or broiling, enter your normal baking
temperature. The control will automatically reduce the set oven
temperature by 25°F (15°C).
Convect Roast
When convection roasting, enter your normal baking temperature.
The temperature will not be automatically reduced. The convection
fan will come on immediately after the oven has turn on.
Convect Options
Convect Bake - Multiple rack baking or cookies, biscuits, breads,
casseroles, tarts, tortes, cakes.
Convect Broil - Thicker cuts or unevenly shaped pieces of meat,
fish or poultry.
Convect Roast - Whole chicken or turkey, vegetables, pork roasts,
beef roasts.

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.
Before self-cleaning, make sure the door is completely closed or
the door will not lock and the self-cleaning cycle will not begin.

cloth. To avoid breaking the glass, do not apply a cool damp cloth
to the inner door glass before it has completely cooled.
To stop the self-cleaning cycle at anytime, press the Cancel
keypad. If the temperature is too high, the oven door will remain
locked and “cool” and “locked” will be displayed.
The oven light will not function during the self-cleaning cycle.

The SELF CLEAN self-cleaning cycle is time adjustable between
2 hours 30 minutes and 4 hours 30 minutes in 15-minute
