WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
injury to persons, or damage when using
the range, follow these basic precautions:
1.
Read all instructions before using the
range.
2.
Install or locate the range only in accordance with the provided installation instructions. It is recommended that the
range be installed by a qualified installer.
The range must also be properly connected to a grounded electrical supply.
3.
Do not use the range for heating the room.
Persons could be burned or injured, or a
fire could start.
4.
Do not leave children 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. They could be
burned or injured.
5.
Do not wear loose or hanging garments
when using the range. Clothing could ignite if it touches a surface element and
you could be burned.
6.
Do not repair or replace any part of the
range unless specifically recommended
in this manual. All other servicing should
be referred to a qualified technician.
7.
Do not operate the range if it is not working properly, or if it has been damaged or
dropped.
8.
Clean your range regularly. See “Care
and Cleaning” instructions that are included with the range.
9.
11. Do not use water on grease fires. Never
pick up a flaming pan. Smother flaming
pan on range by covering with a wellfitting 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.
12. Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp
potholders on surface elements may result in burns from steam. Do not let the
potholder touch a surface element. Do
not use a towel or bulky cloth for a
potholder. It could catch on fire.
13. 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.
14. Never leave elements unattended at high
heat settings. A boilover could result and
cause smoking and greasy spillovers that
may ignite.
15. Grease is flammable and should be
handled carefully. Let fat cool before attempting to handle it. Do not allow grease
to collect around range or in vents. Wipe
spillovers immediately.
16. Check to be sure glass cooking utensils
are safe for use on the range. Only certain
types of glass, glass-ceramic, earthenware or other glazed utensils are suitable
for ranges. Other types may break due to
the sudden change in temperature.
Use the range only for its intended use as
described in this manual.
10. Do not store flammable materials on or
near the range. They could explode or
burn.
-v-
17. Turn pan handles inward, but not over
other surface elements. This will help reduce the chance of burns, igniting of flammable materials, and spills due to bumping the pan.
18. Do not heat unopened containers. They
could explode. The hot contents could
cause burns and container particles could
cause injury.
19. Do not use decorative covers or trivets
over the surface elements.
20. Do not store things children might want
above the range. Children could be burned
or injured while climbing on range.
21. Do not touch hot surface elements or
areas near elements. Areas near surface
elements become hot enough to cause
burns. During use, do not touch or let
clothing or other flammable materials contact surface elements or areas near elements.
22. Do not block the ventilation.
23. Make sure that the elements are turned
off when you are finished cooking , and
when you are not watching.
24. Be sure all range parts are cool before
cleaning.

grounding wire of the four-wire power cord is connected to the cabinet.
For a 4-wire receptacle (NEMA Type 14-50R,
shown below), a matching U.L.-listed, 4-wire, 250volt, 40-ampere, range power supply cord (pigtail)
must be used. This cord contains four copper
conductors with ring terminals on the appliance
end, and terminates in a NEMA Type 14-50P plug
on the supply end. The fourth (grounding) conductor must be identified by a green, or green/yellow
cover, and the neutral conductor by a white cover.
The cord should be Type SRD or SRDT with a U.L.listed strain relief, and be at least 4-feet long.
The MINIMUM conductor sizes for the copper
4-wire power supply cord are:
• 40-ampere circuit
• 2) #8 conductors
• 1) #10 white neutral
• 1) #8 green grounding
GENERAL
If codes permit, and a separate grounding wire is
used, it is recommended that a qualified electrician
determine that the grounding path is adequate.
The following information applies to the electric
range wiring:
•
A 3- or 4-wire, single phase, 120/240-volt, 60
Hz, AC-only electrical supply, (or a 3- or 4-wire
120/208-volt, if specified on the model/serial
rating plate), is required on a separate 40-ampere circuit, fused on both sides of the line. A timedelay fuse, or circuit breaker, is recommended.
The fuse must be sized as per local codes in
accordance with the electrical rating of the appliance specified on the model/serial rating plate,
which is located behind the storage door on the
left side of the oven frame.
•
The range must be connected with copper
wire only.
•
Local codes may permit the use of a U.L.listed, 250-volt, 40-ampere range power supply cord (pigtail). This cord contains three #10

THE BAKE FUNCTION
Refer to the illustrations on the next page.
As electrical current flows through the BAKE
element, it heats up. The temperature in the
oven is regulated by the temperature sensor.
If the temperature at the back of the oven
exceeds 360˚F, the thermal fuse will open,
and terminate the BAKE function.
When the unit is plugged in and line voltage is
applied to the electronic oven control, the
following keyboard actions are used to set the
BAKE function:
• The clock is set to the time-of-day.
• The BAKE keypad is selected.
• The BAKE temperature is selected.
The BROIL relay will also close to provide top
heat during the BAKE cycle. The BROIL relay
will cycle on approximately 20% of the bake
operation time.
When the preceding events occur, the BAKE
relay energizes, and its contacts close. This
provides an electrical circuit through the BAKE
element and the thermal fuse to the neutral
side of the line*.
To preheat the oven before a BAKE cycle, the
BAKE relay is closed for 100% of the preheat
time, and the BROIL relay closes for approximately 40% of the preheat time.

THE CLEAN FUNCTION
Refer to the illustrations on the next page.
Temperatures inside the oven will reach 875˚F
to 900˚F during the CLEAN cycle. If the temperature at the back of the oven reaches 363˚F,
the thermal fuse will open, and the CLEAN
cycle will be terminated.
When the unit is plugged in and line voltage is
applied to the electronic oven control, the
following keyboard actions are used to set the
oven CLEAN function:
• The CLEAN function is selected.
• The desired cleaning time is selected
(if other than 3:30 hrs.).
Because the oven reaches extremely hot temperatures, the oven door is latched during the
CLEAN cycle, and remains latched until the
oven has cooled to a safe temperature.
When the preceding events occur, the BAKE
relay energizes, and its contacts close. This
provides an electrical circuit through the BAKE
element and the thermal fuse to the neutral
side of the line.
The door latching operation occurs when the
LATCH SOLENOID relay closes, and electrical current flows through the LATCH SOLENOID.
After the CLEAN cycle has been completed,
the door latch will release when the oven
temperature drops below 400˚F.
The BROIL relay also closes to provide a heat
circuit. To control the heat build-up at the
beginning of the CLEAN cycle, the BAKE relay
closes for 60% of the preheat time, and the
BROIL relay closes for 40% of the time until
the oven temperature reaches 550˚F. To provide the increased self-clean temperatures
after the preheat time has concluded, the relay will cycle as follows:
Bake = 60%
Broil = 70%

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION & TESTING
TROUBLESHOOTING
Test Procedure
DOOR LATCH ASSEMBLY
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Disconnect from electrical supply before servicing unit.
Failure to do so could result in death or
electrical shock.
Description
The purpose of the door latch is to lock the oven
door during the self-clean cycle. The door latch
assembly consists of a solenoid and a switch.
The latch assembly prevents the oven door
from being opened during the self-clean cycle,
when the oven temperature is above 600˚F.
SOLENOID
TERMINALS
To test the solenoid windings, perform the
following steps:
The door latch solenoid operates on a 120-volt
dc pulse from the oven control. When the door
is in the unlocked position, the solenoid plunger
is extended. When the latch sensing switch is
open, the control senses that the door is unlocked. When the latch sensing switch closes,
the oven control senses that the door is locked.
The latch sensing switch, mounted on the
solenoid bracket, is in the N.O. (normallyopen) position. During the self-clean cycle,
the oven control sends a 120-volt dc pulse to
the solenoid windings, which pulls the plunger
in, and moves the latch actuator rod to lock the
oven door. The movement of the rod also
activates the latch sensing switch and closes
it. When the self-clean cycle is over, and the
oven temperature reaches approximately 600˚,
the oven control sends a 120-volt dc pulse to
the solenoid, the plunger is pushed out, the
latch actuator rod releases the door and unlocks it, and the sensing switch opens. There
are no adjustments for the latch.
1.
Use an ohmmeter and set the range switch
to R x 1.
2.
With no power applied, remove the wire
from either solenoid terminal.
3.
Touch the leads of the ohmmeter to the
terminals of the solenoid. You should obtain a reading of between 45 Ω and 65 Ω.
If the reading is not within the range shown,
the solenoid is defective and should be replaced.
Latch Sensing Switch

NO
SWITCH
To test the latch sensing switch, perform the
following steps:
1.
With no power applied, touch the ohmmeter leads to the two switch terminals. The
meter should indicate an open circuit (infinity ∞).
2.
Close the switch and the ohmmeter should
indicate 0 Ω (short circuit).
If the above results are not obtained, the switch
is defective and should be replaced.

OVEN TEMPERATURE
SENSOR
2-WIRE
SENSOR
CONNECTOR
To test the oven temperature sensor, perform
the following steps:
Description
The operation of the Bake, Broil, and SelfClean cycles is controlled by the oven control
and the oven temperature sensor. The oven
temperature sensor is a “Resistance Temperature Detector” (RTD), and is composed of
a stainless steel tube with a thin film of platinum at the end. It is located at the upper left
rear corner of the oven cavity. The RTD is a
nonadjustable assembly, but may be checked
at room temperature, or at 350˚F. A sensor
resistance of less than 550 ohms is regarded
as a shorted sensor, and a resistance greater
than 3000 ohms is regarded as an open sensor. When the oven control senses a resistance of less than 550 ohms, and greater than
3000 ohms, the bake and broil functions will
be turned off.
1.
Use an ohmmeter and set the range switch
to R x 10.
2.
With no power applied, touch the leads of
the ohmmeter to the connector pins of the
