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
units
Push in control knobs before turning them to a
setting. You can set them anywhere between HI
and OFF.

The Surface Unit Indicator Light on the control
panel will glow when a surface unit is on.
Burn and Fire Hazard
Be sure all control knobs are turned to OFF
and all indicator lights are OFF when you
are not cooking.
Someone could be burned or a fire could
start if a surface unit is accidentally left ON.

readv to serve.
tips
Select a pan that is about the same size as the
surface unit.
NOTE: For best results and greater energy
efficiency, use only flat-bottomed utensils that
make good contact with the surface units.
Utensils with rounded, warped, ridged (porcelain enamel-ware) or dented bottoms could
cause severe overheating, which damages the
utensil and/or surface unit.
Woks, canners and teakettles with flat
bottoms suitable for use on your cooktop are
now available in most houseware stores and
departments.
The pan should have straight sides and a tightfitting lid.
Choose medium to heavy gauge (thickness)
pans that are fairly light-weight.
The pan material (metal or glass) affects how
fast heat transfers from the surface unit through
the pan material and how evenly heat spreads
over the pan bottom. Choose pans that provide
the best cooking results.
Handles should be made of sturdy, heatresistant material and be securely attached to
the pan.
l
l
Product Damage Hazard
If a surface unit stays red for a long time,
the bottom of the pan is not flat enough or
is too small for the surface unit. Prolonged
usage of incorrect utensils can result in
damage to the surface unit, cooktop,
wiring and surrounding areas. To prevent
damage, use correct utensils, start
cooking on HI and turn control down to
continue cookfng.
Do not leave an empty utensil, or one
which has boiled dry, on a hot surface unit.
The utensil can overheat and may damage
the utensil or surface unit.
Home
canning
information
The large diameter of most water-bath or
pressure canners combined with high heat
settings for long periods of time can shorten the
life of regular surface units and cause damage to
the cooktop.
If you plan to use the cooktop for canning, we
recommend the installation of a Canning Kit.
Order the kit (Part No. 242905) from your
Whirlpool dealer or authorized WhirlpoolSM
service company.
To protect your range:
l Use flat-bottomed
canners/pans
for best
results.
l Use the largest
surface unit for best results.
Also, use a canner/pan which can be centered
over the surface unit and which does not
extend more than one inch outside surface unit
area. Large diameter canners/pans, if not
properly centered, trap heat and can cause
damage to the cooktop.
l Do not place
canner on two surface units 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.
l Keep reflector
bowls clean for best heat
reflection.
l To prolong the life of the elements:
- Prepare small batches at a time.
- Do not use elements for canning all day.
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:
I

Personal Injury Hazard
l Alwavs position oven rack(s) in desired
locatibn’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.
Failure to follow the above precautions may
result in personal injury.
2nd or 3rd level
from bottom
t-i
When baking on two racks, arrange racks on
bottom and third level from bottom.
NOTE: For recommended rack placement when
broiling, see “Broiling rack position chart” on
page 16.
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 1!4 to 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).
l Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at one
time.
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 corners on each oven rack.
Stagger pans so no pan is directly over another.
9
Using
aluminum
foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers from pies or
casseroles.
l Place the foil on the oven rack below the rack
with the food. Turn up foil edges and make
sure foil is about 1 inch (3 cm) larger all around
than the dish holding the food.
l Do not cover
the entire rack with aluminum foil.
It will reduce air circulation and cause poor
cooking results.
l Do not line oven bottom or entire oven rack
with foil or other liners. Poor baking will result.
Electrical Shock and Fire Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements because it will damage them and
could result in shock or fire hazard.

Adjusting
the oven temperature
Oven temperature controls will gradually shift
after years of use. So, even though your new
oven is properly adjusted to provide accurate
temperatures, it may cook faster or slower than
your old oven.
If, after using the oven for a period of time, you
are not satisfied with the temperature settings,
you can change them by following these steps:
Push the Bake pad and hold (for about 4
seconds) until the time display shows the
current temperature offset, for example “00”
if you have not previously adjusted the
temperature.
To adjust the temperature,
use the Temp
pad(s). Push A to raise the temperature or V
to lower the temperature in 5°F increments.
You can set the temperature change to as low
as -35°F or as high as +35”F. A minus (-) sign
will appear before the number when decreasing the temperature setting to show the oven
will be cooler by the displayed amount.
3. After making the desired adjustment,
push
any command pad to enter the new offset
temperature.

Broiling
1. Position the rack before turning the oven on.
Sea “Broiling rack position chart” on page 16.
2. Put the broiler pan and food on the rack.
3. Close the door to the Broil Stop position (open
about 4 inches [lo.2 cm]). The door will stay
open by itself.
4. Push the Broil pad. The small display will
show “500”” and BROIL will light up.
5. Push the Start/Enter pad. HEAT, BROIL and

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.
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.

l
l
Fire Hazard
Place meat the correct distance from the
element. Meat placed too close to the
element may spatter, smoke, burn or catch
fire during broiling.
To ensure adequate grease drainage, do
not use cookie sheets or similar pans for
broiling. Also, covering the broiler grid with
foil is not recommended. Poor drainage of
grease may result in fire. If foil is used, cut
slits in foil to line up with all openings in
broiler grid. Grease can then drain away
and cool in pan.
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 Match the pan to the surface
unit size.
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 unit control on low or off to finish
cooking. Use retained heat for cooking when
possible.
l Use the more efficient surface units instead of
the oven when possible.
Using
the electronic
l

Turn on the surface unit only after placing filled
pan on the unit.
“Oven peeking” may cause heat loss, longer
cooking times and unsatisfactory baking
results. Rely on your timer to keep track of the
cooking time.
Bake cakes, pies or cookies when oven is
warm. Best time is after a meal has been
cooked in it.
Preheat the oven no longer than necessary.
Plan your meals for the most efficient use of
the range. When using the oven to cook one
food, try to cook the rest of the meal in it also.
Do not preheat when broiling, roasting or
cooking items such as casseroles.
Keep reflector bowls clean for best heat
reflection.

food stand
for more than two hours before cooking
starts.
l Do not allow food to remain in oven for
more than two hours after the end of
cooking cycle.
NOTE: Do not use foods that will spoil while
waiting for cooking to start. Such foods are:
dishes with milk or eggs, cream soups and
cooked meats or fish. Also, foods containing
baking powder or yeast will not rise properly
when cooked using delay start.
The oven vent
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven
through a vent under the right rear surface unit.
You can cook on the unit or keep food warm on it
while the oven is on. The vent is needed for air
circulation. Do not block the vent. Poor baking/
roasting can result.
NOTE: Plastic utensils left over the vent can melt.
I
Burn and Fire Hazard
If you leave a utensil on the right rear
surface unit, use potholders when moving
it. Pan handles can become hot enough to
burn.
Keep flammable materials away from oven
vent.
Failure to do so can result in burns or fire.

The Self-Cleaning cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning the oven
interior. Like with other functions of your range, you operate the Self-Cleaning cycle with the easy-touse electronic controls. Please review the instructions in this section to keep your oven spotless.
How the cycle
works
The Setf-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
baking or broiling. This high heat breaks up the
soil or grease and burns it away.
Your oven is preset for 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.

you start
Before you start the Self-Cleaning
cycle, make
sure you:
l Hand-clean
the areas shown. They do not get
hot enough during the cleaning cycle for soil to
burn away. Use hot water and detergent or a
soapy steel-wool pad for cleaning.
NOTE: DO NOT clean, move or bend the seal.
Poor cleaning, baking and roasting may result.
27
Remove the broiler pan grid and any pots
and pans being stored in the oven.
NOTE: You can clean the broiler pan (without
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. The chrome broiler pan grid
will discolor if cleaned in the Self-Cleaning
cycle.
. Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This will
help reduce smoke during the cleaning cycle.
l
Remove the oven racks 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.)
l
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.
l
Setting
the controls
1. Make sure the clock is set to the correct time
of day. (See “Setting the clock” on page 11.)
2. Lift the panel between the oven door and the
control panel. Move the Lock Lever all the
way to the right-the Clean position.
3. To start cleaning immediately:
Push the Clean pad. A 3-hour Self-Cleaning
cycle will be set automatically. ‘3:OO” with the
colon flashing will show in the large display
and “cln” will show in the small display. TIME

Personal Injury and
Product Damage Hazard
Do not touch the oven during the SelfCleaning cycle. It could burn you.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners in
your oven. Cleaners may produce hazardous fumes or damage the porcelain finish.
Do not leave foil in the oven during the SelfCleaning cycle. Foil can burn or melt and
damage the oven surface.
NOTE: Do not force the Lock Lever. You could
bend or break it. The lever is designed to stay
locked until the oven is cool enough to safely
open. Wait until it moves freely.
Do not block the vent during the Self-Cleaning
cycle. Air must move freely for best cleaning
results.
Do not leave plastic utensils near the vent.
They may melt.
Chrome reflector bowls must not be cleaned in
the oven. They will discolor.
If a cleaning cycle other than 3 hours is
desired, use the Hour and Minute pads to set
the desired cleaning time. Push the “up” (A)
or “down” (V) pad(s) until a time between 2-4
hours shows in the display.
l Use 2 hours for light soil.
l Use 3-4 hours for moderate
to heavy soil.
Push the StarVEnter pad. TIMED and HEAT
will light up in the display to show that the
oven is programmed for the Self-Cleaning
cycle.
NOTE: The display will show “door” and a tone
will sound once a minute for 5 minutes if the
door is not latched.
Skip to Step 6.
4. To delay the start using Stop Time:
Push the Clean pad. Push the Stop Time pad.
STOP, TIME, CLEAN and “cln” will light up.
Use the Hour and Minute pads to set the
desired stop time. Push the “up” (A) or “down”
(V) pad(s) until the correct time shows in the
display. The oven will automatically compute
the delay start time by subtracting the set
cleaning time from the set stop time.
Push the Start/Enter pad. DELAY, CLEAN
and the time of day will light up in the display
to show that the oven is programmed to start
the Self-Cleaning cycle at a later time.
Skip to Step 6.
5. To delay the start using Start Time:
Push the Clean pad. Push the Delay Start
Time pad. START, TIME, CLEAN and “cln” will
light up. Use the Hour and Minute pads to set
the desired start time. Push the “up” (A) or
“down” (V) pad(s) until the correct time shows
in the display.
Push the Start/Enter pad. DELAY, CLEAN
and the time of day will light up in the display
to show that the oven is programmed to start
the Self-Cleaning cycle at a later time.
After the start time has been sat, the
large display will go back to showing the
current time of day. DELAY and CLEAN will
stay on. When the start time is reached,
DELAY will go off, TIMED, CLEAN and
CLEAN TIME will light up and the oven will
start to clean.
29
6. After the Self-Cleaning
cycle is started,
LOCKED lights up in the display when the
oven temperature goes above normal baking/
roasting temperatures. The Lock Lever must
not be moved and the door cannot be opened
when LOCKED is on.
7. After the Self-Cleaning
cycle is completed,
the time of day will show in the display.
8. When the oven reaches normal baking/
roasting temperatures,
LOCKED goes off
and “End” and CLEAN TIME come on. Move
the Lock Lever back to the left. DO NOT
FORCE lT. Wait until it moves easily.
To stop the Self-Cleaning
cycle at any time:
1. Push the Off/Cancel pad.
2. When LOCKED goes off, move the Lock
Lever back to the left. DO NOT FORCE IT.
Wait until it moves easily.
Special
tips
Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the SelfCleaning cycle to help get rid of heat, odors and
smoke.
l After the oven is cool, wipe
up any residue or
ash with a damp cloth.
* Clean the oven before it gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning a very soiled oven takes longer and
resufts in more smoke than usual.
l
30
. If the Self-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 SelfCleaning cycle longer the next time and handclean areas noted on page 27.

and reflector
bowls
Removing
1. Make sure all control knobs are turned off
and cool before removing surface units and
reflector bowls.
2. Lift the edge of the unit, opposite the receptacle, just enough to clear the element holddown clip and the reflector bowl.
3. Pull the surface unit straight away from the
receptacle.
31
4. Lift out the reflector bowl. See “Cleaning
Chart” on page 34 for cleaning instructions.
Replacing
1. Make sure all control knobs are turned off and
cool before replacing surface units and
reflector bowls.
2. Line up openings in the reflector bowl with the
surface unit receptacle and the element holddown clip.
3. Hold the surface unti as level as possible with
the terminal just started into the receptacle.
Push the surface unit terminal into the
receptacle.
32
4. When the terminal is pushed into the receptacle as far as ii will go, push down the edge
of the surface unit opposite the receptacle.
The element hold-down clip will keep the
surface unit from moving around.
NOTE: Reflector bowls reflect heat back to the
utensils on the surface units. They also help
catch spills. When they are kept clean, they
reflect heat better and look new longer.
If a reflector bowl gets discolored, some of your
utensils may not be flat enough, or some may be
too large for the surface unit. In either case,
some of the heat that’s meant to go into or
around a utensil goes down and heats the
reflector bowl. This extra heat can discolor it.
Removing
(model
the oven window
RS6755XY)
If your oven has an oven window instead of the
black glass door, you can remove the outer glass
and frame for cleaning. Do not take apart a black
glass door.
