They could be burned or injured.
2. DO NOT store things children
might want above the range.
Children could be burned or
injured while climbing on it.
3. DO NOT allow anyone to touch
hot surface units or heating elements. Dark colored units and elements can still be hot enough to
burn severely.
4. KEEP children away from the
range when it is on. The cooktop
and oven walls, racks and door
can get hot enough to cause
burns.
5. DO NOT use the range to heat a
room. Persons in the room could
be burned or injured, or a fire
could start.
6.
KEEP pan handles turned in, but not
over another surface unit to avoid
burns, injury and to help prevent the
utensil from being pushed off the surface units.
7. DO NOT use water on grease fires.
The fire will spread. Cover fire with
large lid or smother with baking
soda or salt.
