• Stepping, leaning or sitting on the doors or
drawers of this range can result in serious
injuries and also cause damage to the
range. Do not allow children to climb or play
around the range. The weight of a child on an
open door may cause the range to tip,
resulting in serious burns or other injury.
• User servicing—Do not repair or replace any
part of the appliance unless specifically
recommended in the manuals. All other
servicing should be done only by a qualified
technician. This may reduce the risk of personal
injury and damage to the range.

Safety
Important safety instructions
• Protective liners—Do not use aluminum foil to
line the oven bottom, except as suggested in
the manual. Improper installation of these liners
may result in a risk of electrical shock, or fire.
• Storage in or on Appliance—Flammable
materials should not be stored in an oven,
lower oven drawer, near surface units or in
the storage drawer. This includes paper,
plastic and cloth items, such as cookbooks,
plasticware and towels, as well as flammable
liquids. Do not store explosives, such as aerosol
cans, on or near the range.
IMPORTANT
Do not attempt to operate the range during a
power failure. If the power fails, always turn off
the range. If the range is not turned off and the
power resumes, the range will begin to operate
again. Once the power resumes, reset the clock
and oven function.
• Do not heat unopened food containers Buildup of pressure may cause container to
burst and result in injury.
• Do not leave children alone—Children should
not be left alone or unattended in the area
where appliance is in use. They should never
be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the
appliance.
• Remove the oven door from any unused
range if it is to be stored or discarded.
• DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE ZONE, AREAS
NEAR THESE ZONE, HEATING ELEMENTS OR
INTERIOR SURFACES OF THE OVENS. ALL
surface zones and oven heating elements may
be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas
near surface zones may become hot enough to
cause burns. During and after use, do not touch,
or let clothing or other flammable materials touch
these areas until they have had sufficient time to
cool. Among these areas are the cook top,
surfaces facing the cook top, the oven vent
openings and surfaces near these openings,
oven door and window.
• Know which control operates each surface
heating zone. Place a pan of food on the unit
before turning it on, and turn the zone off before
removing the pan.
• Wear proper apparel—Loose-fitting or
hanging garments should never be worn
while using the appliance. Do not let clothing or
other flammable materials contact hot surfaces.
• Do not use water or flour on grease fires—
Smother the fire with a pan lid, or use baking
soda, a dry chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
• When heating fat or grease, watch it closely.
Fat or grease may catch fire if allowed to
become too hot.
• Use only dry potholders - Moist or damp
potholders on hot surfaces may result in
burns from steam. Do not let potholders touch
hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other
bulky cloth instead of a potholder.
Important instructions for using your
cooktop
• Use proper pan size—This appliance is
equipped with one or more surface units of
different sizes. 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 element
will also improve efficiency.
• Utensil handles should be turned inward and
not extend over adjacent surface elements—
To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable
materials, and spillage due to unintentional
contact with the utensil, the handle of the utensil
should be positioned so that it is turned inward,
and does not extend over adjacent surface
units.
• Never leave surface elements unattended at
high heat settings—Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a pan
that has boiled dry may melt.
• Do not immerse or soak removable heating
elements—Heating elements should never be
immersed in water. Heating elements clean
themselves during normal operation.
Safety
Important safety instructions
• Glazed cooking utensils—Only certain types of
glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or
other glazed utensils are suitable for cook top
service without breaking due to the sudden
change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s
recommendations for cook top use.
• When flaming foods under a ventilating hood,
turn the fan on.
For Ceramic-glass cooktop models
• Do not cook on broken cook top—If cook top
should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers
may penetrate the broken cook top and create a
risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified
technician immediately.
• Clean cook top with caution—If a wet sponge
or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking
area, be careful to avoid a steam burn. Some
cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied
to a hot surface.
Important instructions for using your oven
• Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum
foil. Exposed fat and grease could ignite.
• Cold temperatures can damage the electronic
control. When using the appliance for the first
time, or when the appliance has not been used
for an extended period of time, be certain the
unit has been in temperatures above 32°F (0°C)
for at least 3 hours before turning on the power
to the appliance.
Important instructions for cleaning your
range
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free
of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular
attention to the area underneath each surface
element. Do not allow grease to accumulate.
• Kitchen cleaners and aerosols—Always follow
the manufacturer’s recommended directions
for use. Be aware that excess residue from
cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing
damage and injury.
• Use care when opening oven door or lower
oven drawer (if equipped)—Stand to the side of
the range when opening the door of a hot oven.
Let hot air or steam escape before you remove
or replace food in the oven.
• Clean ventilating hoods frequently—Grease
should not be allowed to accumulate on the
hood or filter. Follow manufacturer’s
instructions for cleaning.
• Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. The oven
vent is located under the left rear surface
element if your model is equipped with coil
elements. The oven vent is located below the
backguard for models equipped with ceramicglass cook tops. Touching the surfaces in this
area when the oven is operating may cause
severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heatsensitive items on or near the oven vent. These
items could melt or ignite.
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts
listed in this Use & Care Manual. Before self
cleaning the oven, remove the broiler pan and
any utensils or foods from the oven.
• Placement of oven racks. Always place oven
racks in desired location while oven is cool. If
rack must be moved while oven is hot use
extreme caution. Use potholders and grasp the
rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let
potholders contact the hot heating elements in
the oven. Remove all utensils from the rack
before moving.
• Do not use the broiler pan without its insert.
The broiler pan and its insert allow dripping fat
to drain and be kept away from the high heat of
the broiler.
Self cleaning ovens
• 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.
• 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.
• The health of some birds is extremely sensitive
to the fumes given off during the self-cleaning
cycle of any range. Move birds to another wellventilated room.
Important safety notice
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic
Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California
to publish a list of substances known to the state
to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive
harm, and requires businesses to warn customers
of potential exposure to such substances.

For best air circulation and baking results allow a
space of 2-4" (5-10 cm) around the cookware for
proper air circulation and be sure pans and
cookware do not touch each other, the oven door,
sides or back of the oven cavity. The hot air must
be able to circulate around the pans and cookware
in the oven for even heat to reach around the food.
Always use potholders or oven mitts when
removing food or adjusting the oven racks. Wait
until the oven has completely cooled if possible.
Oven racks may be HOT and may cause burns.
The offset -Fig 1- oven rack may be used in all of
the rack positions. The offset design provides
additional height options. For maximum available
space if preparing a large turkey, it is suggested to
place the rack near the oven bottom (rack positions
1 or 2) - refer to Fig. 4. Do not extend the offset
rack past the oven door when in the lowest rack
position.
Fig. 5 - Proper pan spacing using single oven rack.
The fully extendable glide racks -Fig. 2- make food
preparation easier. Especially when preparing
heavier dishes. The glide oven rack has 2 glide
tracks that allow you to extend your food away
from the oven effortlessly without rubbing the sides
of the oven wall.
Baking layer cakes with 1 or 2 oven racks
For best results when baking cakes using 2 oven
racks, place cookware on rack positions 2 & 5 (refer to Fig. 4. For best results when using a offset

stop position -Fig. 2-. Using both hands, grasp the
upper and lower portions of the glide rack. Lift up
the front of the rack slightly and continue to pull the
rack away from the oven -Fig. 3-. Be sure to grasp
both upper and lower rack portions together when
removing or handling the glide rack - the rack
portions move independently and are difficult to
handle unless held together.
To replace - grasp both upper and lower
portions of glide rack, lift and place the rack
resting evenly between the oven cavity walls. Tilt
the front of the rack upward slightly and slide the
rack completely into position. Some force may be
necessary to make sure the oven rack has
snapped completely back into place.
NOTE
DO NOT attempt to close the oven door until all
the oven racks are properly positioned inside
the oven cavity. Be sure the glide oven racks
make contact with the vertical rack sensor
located at the left rear oven cavity wall (see item
#10, page 9).

Surface Cooking
Cookware
Using proper cookware
Cookware material types
The size and type of cookware used will influence the
setting needed for best cooking results. Cookware
should have flat bottoms that make good contact with
the entire surface heating element. Check for flatness by
rotating a ruler across the bottom of the cookware.
The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly
heat is transferred from the surface element to the pan
bottom. The most popular materials available are:
Be sure to follow the recommendations for using
proper cookware as illustrated.
Cookware should always:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Have a flat bottom.
Have tight fitting lids.
Be well balanced.
Be made of a material that conducts heat well.
Be easy to clean.
Match to the size of the cooktop pattern diameter.
Cookware should never:
• Have a curved or
warped bottom.
• Overhang the
element by more
than one-half inch.
• Be smaller than the
element
• Have a heavy
handle that tilts
pan.
For more information about the ceramic cooktop see
“Cooktop Cleaning & Maintenance” in the Care &
Cleaning section.
• Aluminum - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of
food will cause it to darken (anodized aluminum
cookware resists staining & pitting). If aluminum
pans slide across the ceramic cooktop, they may
leave metal marks which will resemble scratches.
Remove these marks immediately.
• Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors
easily. May leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see
Aluminum above).
• Stainless steel - Slow heat conductor with uneven
cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists
staining.
• Cast iron - A poor heat conductor however will retain
heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking
temperature is reached. Not recommended for use on
ceramic cooktops.
• Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating
characteristics will vary depending on base material.
Porcelain-enamel coating must be smooth to avoid
scratching ceramic cooktops.
• Glass- Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for
ceramic smoothtop because it may scratch the glass.
Home Canning
Be sure to read and observe all the following points
when home canning with your appliance. Check with the
USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) website
and be sure to read all the information they have
available as well as follow their recommendations for
home canning procedures.
• Use only quality flat bottom canners when home
canning. Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom.
• Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no
ridges that radiate from the bottom center when home
canning using a ceramic cooktop.
• Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed
1 inch beyond the surface element markings or burner.
It is recommended to use smaller diameter canners on
electric coil and ceramic glass cooktops.
• Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more
quickly.
• Use the highest heat seating when first bringing the
water to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to
lowest possible setting to maintain that boil.
IMPORTANT
NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over 2
different surface cooking areas at the same time.
This may cause the ceramic cooktop to fracture.

How the cooktop works
About the ceramic glass cooktop
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements
located below the surface of the glass. The design
of the ceramic cooktop outlines the area of the
surface element underneath. Make sure the
diameter of the pan matches the diameter of the
element outline on the cooktop. Heat is transferred
up through the surface of the cooktop to the
cookware. Only flat-bottom cookware should be
used. The type and size of cookware, the number
of surface elements in use and the settings, are all
factors that will affect the amount of heat that will
spread to areas beyond the surface elements. The
areas surrounding the elements may become hot
enough to cause burns.
About the radiant surface elements
The element temperature rises gradually and
evenly. As the temperature rises, the element will
glow red. To maintain the selected setting, the
element will cycle on and off. The heating element
retains enough heat to provide a uniform and
consistent heat during the off cycle. For efficient
cooking, turn off the element several minutes
before cooking is complete. This will allow residual
heat to complete the cooking process.
Your range is equipped with radiant surface
burners with different wattage ratings. The ability to
heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases
as the element wattage increases.
NOTES
• Radiant elements have a limiter that allows
the element to cycle ON and OFF, even at the
HI setting. This helps to prevent damage to
the ceramic cooktop. Cycling at the HI setting
is normal and can occur if the cookware is too
small for the radiant element or if the
cookware bottom is not flat (refer to page 14
for using correct cookware on the cooktop).
• Please read the detailed instructions for
ceramic glass cooktop cleaning in both the
Care and Cleaning and Before You Call
sections of this Use and Care Guide.
Oven vent location
The oven vent is located under the left side of the
control panel. When the upper oven is operational,
warm air will pass through this vent naturally. The
venting is necessary for proper air circulation and
provides good baking results in the upper oven.
DO NOT BLOCK THIS VENT.

Hot Surface Alert
After using any of the radiant element positions the
ceramic cooktop will become very hot. Even after
turning the surface controls off, the cooktop will
remain hot for some time after use.
The cooktop control monitors the temperature of
the cooktop surface and displays the message
hot surface when the cooktop is still too hot to
touch -Fig. 1. If the hot surface message remains
displayed, the heating zone may be set again and
used for cooking.

• Radiant surface elements may appear to have
cooled after they have been turned off. The
glass surface may still be hot and burns may
occur if the glass surface is touched before it
has cooled sufficiently.
• Do not place plastic items such as salt and
pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic
wrappings on top of the range when it is in use.
These items could melt or ignite. Potholders,
towels or wooden spoons could catch fire if
placed too close to the surface elements.

About convection roast
Setting convection roast
How convection roast works
See example below to set convection roast to start
immediately with the auto-suggest (default) setting:
Convection roast is part of the Perfect-Convect³™
system. Convection roast combines a cook cycle
with the convection fan and element to rapidly
roast meats and poultry. Heated air circulates
around the meat from all sides, sealing in juices
and flavors. Meats cooked with this feature are
crispy brown on the outside while staying moist on
the inside. In addition, there is no need to reduce
the oven temperature when using convection roast.
Convection roast may be set with the following
options:
• Cook time or cook time with end time
• Rapid preheat
The following temperature settings apply to
convection roast:
• Factory auto-start default: 350°F/176°C
• Minimum: 170°F / 76°C
• Maximum: 550°F / 288°C
Benefits of convection roast:
• Superior multiple oven rack performance.
• Some foods cook up 25 to 30% faster, saving
time and energy.
• No special pans or bakeware required.
For best results
• Preheating is not necessary for most meats and
poultry.
• Place food items using the recommended rack
positions for the type of food being prepared.
• When placing multiple food items in the oven
allow 2-4” (5-10cm) of space between the food
items for proper air circulation.
• Be sure to carefully follow your recipe’s

Roasting recommendations
Roasting rack instructions (some models)
When preparing meats for convection roasting, you
may use the broiler pan, insert and the roasting
rack supplied with your appliance. The broiler pan
will catch grease spills and the insert will help
prevent grease splatters. The roasting rack fits on
top of the insert allowing the heated air to circulate
under the food for even cooking and helps to
increase browning on the underside.

About convection broiling
Setting convection broil
Convection broiling is part of the Perfect-Convect³™
system. Use the conv broil feature to cook thicker
cuts of meats that require direct exposure to
radiant heat and the convection fan for optimum
browning results. This cooking feature is only
available for the upper oven.
See example below to set conv broil for the upper
oven to start immediately with the auto-suggest
(default) setting.
The following temperature settings apply to the
conv broil feature:
• Auto-suggest (default) setting: 550°F / 288°C
• Min. convection broil setting: 300°F / 148°C
• Max. convection broil setting: 550°F / 288°C
Should an oven fire occur, leave the oven door
closed and turn the oven OFF. If the fire
continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use a
fire extinguisher. Do not put water or flour on the
fire. Flour may be explosive and water can
cause a grease fire to spread and cause
personal injury.
Example

Sabbath mode
This appliance provides special settings for use
when observing the Jewish Sabbath/Holidays. This
mode will turn off all audible tones or visual
display changes normally provided by the oven
control. BAKE and cooktop heating are the only
cooking features available while in the Sabbath
mode.
You must first set the BAKE feature and
temperature needed for the upper oven, the COOK
TIME option if needed and any cooktop power
levels before setting the Sabbath mode. Any
settings made prior to setting the Sabbath mode
will be visible in the displays. The COOK TIME
option, if set prior to the Sabbath mode, will give 1
audible alert at the end of COOK TIME.
The Sabbath mode will override the factory preset
12 Hour Energy Saving mode and the appliance
will stay on until the cooking features are
cancelled. If any of the cooking features are
cancelled when the appliance is in the Sabbath
mode, no audible or visual indicators will be
available to verify the cancellation.
If the oven interior lights are needed, be sure to
activate them prior to setting the Sabbath mode.
Once the oven light is turned ON and the Sabbath
mode is active, the oven light will remain on until
the Sabbath mode is turned off and the oven lights
are turned off. The oven door will not activate the
oven interior lights when the oven door is opened
or closed.
It is recommended that any oven temperature
modification made within an active Sabbath mode
be followed with 2 presses of the START key. This
will insure the oven remains ON even if an attempt
is made to set the oven temperature outside of its
temperature range. If the oven temperature is set
outside of the temperature range, the oven will
default to the nearest available temperature. Try to
set the desired oven temperature again.
The cooktop settings may also be changed even
after the appliance has been set for the Sabbath
mode (Jewish Holidays only).
Should a power failure or interruption occur during
the Sabbath/Holidays, the appliance will shut OFF.
When power is restored the appliance will not turn
back on automatically to the original BAKE feature
settings. SF will appear in all the control display
panels indicating a Sabbath mode failure. - Figs. 1

Setting Warmer Oven Controls
Warmer oven features
The lower warmer oven is ideal for warming foods
such as pizza, casseroles, baked potatoes and
frozen convenience foods. Use the keep warm
feature to keep hot cooked foods at serving
temperature. The warmer oven may also be used
to warm dinner plates.
• KEEP CHILDREN AWAY FROM THE LOWER
WARMER OVEN WHEN HOT. FAILURE TO
DO SO CAN RESULT IN BURNS.
• Always use oven mitts when removing food
from the lower oven. The lower oven rack,
compartment, cookware/plates may be hot.
• Should an oven fire occur, close the drawer
and turn the lower oven OFF. If the fire
continues, use a fire extinguisher. Do not put
water or flour on the fire. Flour may be
explosive.
Arranging warmer oven rack positions
The warmer oven rack may be used two ways:
• In the upright position (See Fig. 1) to allow low
profile food items to be placed both under and
on top of the rack (for example, rolls or biscuits
on top of the rack and a casserole dish
underneath).
• In the downward position (See Fig. 2) to allow for
light weight food items and empty cookware (for
example, rolls or pastries and dinner plates) on
the rack.
Fig. 1
Recommendations for the warmer oven
• When placing food in the lower oven always use
a baking sheet or pan with 4 raised sides to
prevent food from sliding off.
• DO NOT LINE THE OVEN DRAWER WITH
FOIL OR COVER THE OVEN RACK WITH
FOIL. This may result in damage to your oven.
• The maximum height of foods and utensils that
may be used in the warmer oven is 4”. The
maximum width is 15”. Pay close attention to
foods that have potential to rise beyond the
recommended 4” maximum height.
• Use pans in the warmer oven large enough to
contain food and any juices created from the
cooking process.
• Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic
may melt onto the drawer or surrounding
areas and be very difficult to clean. Use a lid or
aluminum foil instead. Use only utensils and
cookware in the oven drawer that are
recommended for oven use in the upper oven.
Fig. 2
For best results
• For best results with the warmer oven, pastries,
casseroles with crumb toppings and bakery
type items should be cooked in the upper oven.
• When using the warmer oven, limit the number of
times the drawer is opened; this will minimize
heat loss. Repeated opening of the drawer
during the warming process may produce
uneven results.

Warmer oven cleaning tips
For easier clean-up, the warmer oven should be
cleaned as soon as the oven cools down. Clean
after each use to minimize build-up of spatter and
food leftovers. When cooking foods that spatter,
cover the food with heatproof lid or foil. Use a mild
detergent and water to clean the oven drawer and
sides. For stubborn soils use a nonabrasive
cleaning pad to remove soils. DO NOT use oven
cleaners on the oven cavity.

Self-Clean
Before starting self-clean
A self-cleaning oven automatically cleans with high
temperatures that are well above those used for
normal cooking. The self-clean feature eliminates
soils completely or reduces them to a fine
powdered ash that you can later easily wipe away
with a damp cloth.
Adhere to the following precautions when
running the self-clean cycle:
During the self-clean cycle, the outside of the
appliance can become very hot to the touch.
DO NOT leave small children unattended near
the appliance.
• Do not use oven cleaners or protective coatings
in or around the oven interior.
• Do not clean the oven door gasket. The woven
material of the oven door gasket is essential for
a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub,
damage or remove the gasket. -Fig. 1• Do not use any cleaning materials on the door
gasket. Leaving chemical residue can damage
the door gasket.
• DO NOT line the oven walls, oven racks,
bottom or any other part of the range with
aluminum foil. Doing so will stop heat
distribution, produce poor baking results
and cause permanent damage to the oven
interior (aluminum foil will melt to the interior
surface of the oven).
• DO NOT force the oven door open. The
automatic door locking system can be
damaged.
• Use caution when opening the door after the
self-clean cycle is finished. The oven may
still be VERY HOT.
• Remove the broiler pan, insert, all utensils and
any aluminum foil. These items cannot
withstand high cleaning temperatures.
• The health of some birds is extremely
sensitive to the fumes given off during the
self-cleaning cycle of any range. Move birds
to another well-ventilated room.
• All oven racks MUST be removed. If they are
left in while attempting to set a self-clean cycle,
the display will show REMOVE RACKS -Fig. 2.
The oven control will not start a self-clean cycle
without first removing all the oven racks.
• Remove any excessive spillovers in the oven
cavity before starting a self-clean cycle. To
clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large
spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when
subjected to high temperatures.
• Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door
liner outside the oven door gasket and the small
area at the front center of the oven bottom with
soap and water. These areas heat sufficiently to
burn soil on.
• Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or
acid content (such as milk, tomatoes,
sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on
the porcelain surface, they may leave a dull spot
even after cleaning.

• Ceramic cooktop
See Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance in the
Care & Cleaning section.
Care and Cleaning
Cooktop maintenance
Cooktop cleaning
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to
maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop.
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply
some of the cooktop cleaner supplied with your
new appliance. Buff with a nonabrasive cloth or
no-scratch cleaning pad. This will make cleaning
easier when soiled from cooking. The special
cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective finish
on the glass to help prevent scratches and
abrasions.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on
the cooktop can cause metal markings on the
cooktop surface. These marks should be removed
immediately after the cooktop has cooled using
the cooktop cleaning cream. Metal marks can
become permanent if not removed prior to future
use.
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with
rough or dirty bottoms can mark or scratch the
cooktop surface.
Do not:
• Slide anything metal or glass across the
cooktop.
• Use cookware with dirt or dirt build up on
bottom; replace with clean cookware before
using.
• Use your cooktop as a cutting board or work
surface in the kitchen.
• Cook foods directly on the cooktop surface
without a pan.
• Drop heavy or hard objects on the ceramic glass
cooktop, they may cause it to crack.
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls
are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of the ceramic glass cooktop
cleaner directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel
or use a nonabrasive plastic type no-scratch
cleaning pad to clean the entire cooktop surface.
Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly,
leaving no residue.
For heavy, burned on soil:
Apply a few drops of the ceramic glass cooktop
cleaner directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled
area using a nonabrasive plastic type no-scratch
cleaning pad, applying pressure as needed. Do not
use the pad you use to clean the cooktop for any
other purpose.
If soils remain, carefully scrape soils with a metal
razor blade scraper, holding scraper at a 30 degree
angle to the surface. Remove loosened soils with
cooktop cleaning cream and buff surface clean.

Care and Cleaning
Cooktop cleaning
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately
if spilled or melted onto the ceramic cooktop
surface. Permanent damage (such as pitting of the
cooktop surface) may occur if not removed
immediately. After turning the surface elements
OFF, use a razor blade scraper or a metal spatula
with a mitt and scrape the soil from the hot surface
(as illustrated). Allow the cooktop to cool, and use
the same method for heavy or burned on soils.
IMPORTANT
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur
if you use an abrasive type cleaning pad. Only
use cleaning products that have been specifically
designed for ceramic glass cooktops.
Do not use the following on the cooktop:
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring
pads, such as metal and some nylon pads.
They may scratch the cooktop, making it more
difficult to clean.
• Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine
bleach, ammonia or oven cleaners, as they may
etch or discolor the cooktop.
• Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper
towels, as they can leave soil or lint on the
cooktop which can burn and cause
discoloration.

Special caution for aluminum use on the
cooktop
• Aluminum Foil - Use of aluminum foil on a hot
cooktop will damage the ceramic cooktop. Do
not use thin aluminum cooking utensils or allow
aluminum foil to touch the ceramic cooktop
under ANY circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils - The melting point of
aluminum is much lower than that of other
metals. Care must be taken when aluminum
pots or pans are used on the cooktop. If allowed
to boil dry, not only will the utensil be
destroyed, but it may fuse to, break or mark the
ceramic glass surface, permanently damaging
the cooktop surface.

Special door care instructions
Changing upper oven lights
IMPORTANT
Most oven doors contain glass that can
break. Read the following recommendations:
•
Do not close the oven door until all the interior
oven racks are fully inserted and retracted to
the back of the oven.
•
Do not hit the glass with pots, pans, or any
other object. The oven door glass may break or
even break at a later time unexpectedly.
•
Scratching, hitting, jarring or stressing the oven
door glass may weaken its structure causing
an increased risk of breakage at a later time.
•
You may use a glass cleaner on the outside of
the oven door glass. Do not spray or allow
water or the cleaner to enter or drip down into
the oven door vents. Spray cleaner on cloth
first and then wipe the oven door clean.
•
Do not use strong oven cleaners, powders or
any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the
outside of the oven door or glass.
•
Never clean the oven door gasket. The oven
door gasket should always clean during the
Self-clean cycle.
• Be sure the range is unplugged and all parts
are COOL before replacing oven light. Wear a
leather-faced glove for protection against
possible broken glass or burns.
The upper oven light bulbs are located at the rear
of the oven cavity and both are covered with a
glass shield. The glass shield must be in place
whenever the oven is in use.
Replacing the upper oven interior light bulbs:
1. Turn electrical power off at the main source or
unplug the appliance.
2. Remove upper oven interior light shield as
illustrated below.
3. Replace bulb with a new T-4 type 40 Watt
Halogen appliance bulb. Please note: do not
allow your fingers to touch the new bulb when
replacing. This will shorten the life of the new
bulb. Use a paper towel to cover the new bulb
when installing.
4. Replace glass shield over bulb.
5. Turn power back on again at the main source
(or plug the appliance back in).
6. The clock will then need to be reset.

common occurrences that are not the result of defective workmanship or materials in this appliance.
Before you call
Problem
Solution
Appliance is not level
• Be sure floor is level, strong & stable enough to
adequately support range.
• If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to
correct the situation.
• Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven.
Place a level on the oven rack. Adjust leveling legs at
base of appliance until the oven rack is level.
• Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear not
level. Be sure cabinets are square & have sufficient
room for appliance clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily.
Appliance must be accessible for
service
• Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly. Contact
