Use dry cbemical or foam-type extinguisher or baking soda
to smother fire or flame. Never use water on a grease fire.
If fire is in the oven or broiler pan, smother by closing

To Prevent Fire or Smoke Damage
If fire is in a pan on the surface burner, cover pan. Never
attempt to pick up or move a flaming pan.
Be sure all packing materials are removed from the appliance
before operating it.
Child Safety

Children must be taught that the appliance and utensils in it can be hot. Let hot utensils cool
in a safe place, out of reach of small children. Children
should be taught that an appliance is not a toy. Children
should not be allowed to play with controls or other parts
of the unit.
NEVER leave any items on the cooktop. The hot air from the
vent may ignite flammable items and may increase pressure in
closed containers which may cause them to burst.
Many aerosol-type spray cans are EXPLOSIVE when exposed
to heat and may be highly flammable. Avoid their use or storage near an appliance.
CAUTION: NEVER store items of
interest to children in cabinets above
an appliance or on backguard of a
range. Children climbing on the appliance door to reach items could be
seriously injured.
Many plastics are vulnerable to heat. Keep plastics away from
parts of the appliance that may become warm or hot. Do not
leave plastic items on the cooktop as they may melt or soften
if left too close to the vent or a lighted surface burner.

Cooking Safety
Always place a pan on a surface burner before turning it on.
Be sure you know which knob controls which surface burner.
Make sure the correct burner is turned on and that the burner
has ignited. When cooking is completed, turn burner off before removing pan to prevent exposure to burner flame.
Always adjust surface burner flame so that it does not extend
beyond the bottom edge of the pan. An excessive flame is
hazardous, wastes energy and may damage the appliance, pan

Always place oven racks in the desired positions while oven

dry, sturdy potholders. Always avoid reaching into the oven
to add or remove food. If a rack must be moved while hot,
use a dry potholder. Always turn the
oven off at the end of cooking.
_
Use care when opening the oven door.
Let hot air or steam escape before moving or replacing food.
PREPARED
FOOD WARNING:
Follow food
manufacturer's instructions. If a plastic frozen food container and/or its cover distorts, warps, or is otherwise damaged during cooking, immediately discard the food and its
container. The food could be contaminated.
Utensil Safety
i '.....
.
Use pans with fiat bottoms and handles that are easily
grasped and stay cool. Avoid using unstable, warped, easily tipped or loose-handled pans. Also avoid using pans,
especially small pans, with heavy handles as they could be
unstable and easily tip. Pans that are heavy to move when
filled with food may also be hazardous.
Be sure utensil is large enough to properly contain food and
avoid believers. Pan size is particularly important in deep fat
frying. Be sure pan will accommodate the volume of food that
is to be added as well as the bubble action of fat.
Clean appliance with caution. Use care to avoid steam burns
if a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot
surface. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.

Never let a pan boil dry as this could damage the utensil and
the appliance.
Before self-cleaning the oven, remove broiler pan, oven
racks and other utensils and wipe up excessive spillovers
to prevent excessive smoke or flare-ups. CAUTION: Do
not leave food or cooking utensils, etc. in the oven during
the self-clean cycle.
Follow the manufacturer's directions when using oven cooking bags.
Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic or glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktop or oven usage without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature,
It is normal for the cooktop of the range to become hot
during a self-clean cycle. Therefore, touching the cooktop
during a clean cycle should be avoided.
This appliance has been tested for safe performance using conventional cookware. Do not use any devices or accessories that
are not specifically recommended in this guide. Do not use
eyelid covers for the surface units, stovetop grills, or add-on
oven convection systems. The use of devices or accessories
that are not expressly recommended in this manual can create
serious safety hazards, result in performance problems, and
reduce the life of the components of the appliance.
Cleaning
Important Safety Notice and Warning
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) requires the Governor
of California to publish a list of substances known to the
State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm,
and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposures to such substances.
Safety
Users of this appliance are hereby warned that the burning
of gas can result in low-level exposure to some of the listed
substances, including benzene, formaldehyde and soot, due
primarily to the incomplete combustion of natural gas or
liquid petroleum (LP) fuels. Properly adjusted burners will
minimize incomplete combustion. Exposure to these substances can also be minimized by properly venting the
burners to the outdoors.
Turn off all controls and wait for appliance parts to cool before
touching or cleaning them. Do not touch the burner grates or
surrounding areas until they have had sufficient time to cool.

The gasket is designed to seal in heat during the clean cycle.
• It is normal for parts of the range to become hot during a
clean cycle.
Wipe up excess grease or spillovers from the oven bottom to
prevent excessive smoking, flare-ups and flaming during the
clean cycle.
• Avoid touching cooktop, door, window, or oven vent
area during a clean cycle.
Wipe up sugary and acid spillovers such as sweet potatoes,
tomato or milk-based sauces. Porcelain enamel is acid resistant, not acid proof. The poreelain finish may discolor if
acid spills are not wiped up prior to a self-clean cycle.
• To prevent damage to oven door, do not attempt to open
the door when the LOCK indicator word is displayed,
• Do not use commercial oven cleaners on the self-clean
oven finish or around any part of the oven as they will
damage the finish or parts.
During Clean Cycle
The self-clean cycle uses above normal cooking temperatures
to automatically clean the entire oven interior,
It is normal for excessive flare-ups, smoking and flaming to
occur during cleaning if the oven is heavily soiled. It is better
to clean the oven regularly rather than to wait until there is a
heavy build-up of soil in the oven.
When the LOCK indicator word lights in the display, the door
cannot be opened. To prevent damage to door, do not force
door open when the LOCK indicator word is displayed.
Some smoke and odor may be detected the first few times the
oven is cleaned. This is normal and will lessen in time. Smoke
may also occur if oven is heavily soiled or if broiler pan was
left in oven.
During the cleaning process, the kitchen should be well
ventilated to help eliminate normal odors associated with
cleaning,
As oven heats, you may hear sounds of metal parts expanding
and contracting. This is normal and will not damage oven.
