To Prevent Fire or Smoke
Damage
About Your Appliance
WARNING
Be sure all packing materials are removed from the
appliance before operating it.
NEVER use appliance doors as a step stool or seat as this
may result in possible tipping of the appliance and serious
injuries.
Keep area around appliance clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors
and materials.
NEVER use this appliance as a space heater to heat or
warm a room. Doing so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning and overheating of the oven.
If appliance is installed near a window, proper precautions should be taken to prevent curtains from blowing
over burners.
NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven
bottom or cover the entire rack with materials such as
aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the
oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
Aluminum foil may also trap heat causing a fire
hazard.
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.
NEVER obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation
air by blocking the oven vent or air intakes. Doing so
restricts air to the burners and may result in carbon
monoxide poisoning.
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.
The oven vent is located at the base of the backguard.
Avoid touching oven vent area while ovens are on and
for several minutes after ovens are turned off. Some
parts of the vent and surrounding area become hot
2
Important Safety Instructions
enough to cause burns. After ovens are turned off, do
not touch the oven vent or surrounding areas until they
have had sufficient time to cool.
NEVER leave a surface cooking operation unattended
especially when using a high heat setting or when deep
fat frying. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers
may ignite. Clean up greasy spills as soon as possible.
Do not use high heat for extended cooking operations.
Other potentially hot surfaces include cooktop, areas
facing the cooktop, oven vent, surfaces near the vent
opening, oven doors, areas around the oven doors and
oven windows.
NEVER heat an unopened container on the surface
burner or in the ovens. Pressure build-up may cause
container to burst resulting in serious personal injury or
damage to the appliance.
Do not touch a hot oven light bulb with a damp cloth as
the bulb could break. Should the bulb break, disconnect
power to the appliance before removing bulb to avoid
electrical shock.
Use dry, sturdy potholders. Damp potholders may cause
burns from steam. Dish towels or other substitutes
should never be used as potholders because they can
trail across hot surface burners and ignite or get caught
on appliance parts.
Do not use the cooktop or oven as a storage area for
food or cooking utensils.
Always let quantities of hot fat used for deep fat frying
cool before attempting to move or handle.
Child Safety
Do not let cooking grease or other flammable materials
accumulate in or near the appliance, hood or vent fan.
Clean hood frequently to prevent grease from accumulating on hood or filter. When flaming foods under the
hood turn the fan on.
CAUTION
NEVER store items of interest to children in cabinets
above an appliance or on backguard of a range. Children climbing on the appliance doors to reach items
could be seriously injured.
NEVER wear garments made of flammable material or
loose fitting or long-sleeved apparel while cooking.
Clothing may ignite or catch utensil handles.
NEVER leave children alone or unsupervised near the
appliance when it is in use or is still hot.
NEVER allow children to sit or stand on any part of the
appliance as they could be injured or burned.
Ovens
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.
Always place oven racks in the desired positions while
ovens are cool. Slide oven racks out to add or remove
food, using dry, sturdy potholders. Always avoid reaching
into the ovens to add or remove food. If a rack must be
moved while hot, use a dry potholder. Always turn the
ovens off at the end of cooking.
Cooking Safety
Use care when opening the oven doors. Let hot air or
steam escape before moving or replacing food.
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.
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.
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 or cabinets above the appliance.
NEVER use aluminum foil to cover oven racks or oven
bottoms. This could result in risk of electric shock, fire, or
damage to the appliance. Use foil only as directed in this
guide.

Important Safety Instructions
Utensil Safety
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.
Use pans with flat 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.
Self-Cleaning Ovens
CAUTION
Be sure utensil is large enough to properly contain food
and avoid boilovers. 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.
Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the oven racks,
broiler pan, food and any other utensils. Wipe
spillovers to prevent excessive smoke and flare-ups.
To minimize burns, ignition of flammable materials and
spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, do
not extend handles over adjacent surface burners. Always
turn pan handles toward the side or back of the appliance, not out into the room where they are easily hit or
reached by small children.
Clean only parts listed in this guide. 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. Do not use oven cleaners of any kind in or
around any part of the self-clean ovens.
Never let a pan boil dry as this could damage the utensil
and the appliance.
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.
Follow the manufacturer’s directions when using oven
cooking bags.
Important Safety Notice and
Warning
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. Follow manufacturer’s instructions when using glass.
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.
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.
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.
Cleaning Safety
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.
Users of this appliance are hereby warned that when
the oven is engaged in the self-clean cycle, there may
be some low-level exposure to some of the listed

Surface Cooking
Suggested Heat Settings
Intermediate flame sizes are used to
continue cooking. Food will not cook any
faster when a higher flame setting is used
than needed to maintain a gentle boil.
Water boils at the same temperature
whether boiling gently or vigorously.
Low: Use to simmer foods, keep foods
warm and melt chocolate or butter. Some
cooking may take place on the Low
setting if the pan is covered. Be sure
flame is stable.
High: Use to bring liquid to a boil, or reach
pressure in a pressure cooker. Always
reduce setting to a lower heat when liquids
begin to boil or foods begin to cook.

will light. (All five ignitors will spark when any surface
burner knob is turned to the Light position.)
• NEVER touch cooktop until it has cooled. Expect some
parts of the cooktop, especially around the burners, to
become warm or hot during cooking. Use potholders to
protect hands.
3. After the burner lights, turn knob to desired flame size.
• The ignitor will continue to spark until the knob is
turned past the Light position.
4. After cooking, turn knob to OFF. Remove pan.
Pilotless Ignition
Operating During a
Power Failure
Pilotless ignition eliminates the
need for a constant standing
pilot light. Each surface burner
has a spark ignitor. Use care
when cleaning around the
surface burner.
CAUTION
When lighting the surface burners, be sure all of the
controls are in the OFF position. Strike the match first and
hold it in position before turning the knob to Light.
If the surface burner does
not light, check if ignitor is
broken, soiled or wet.
1. Hold a lighted match to the desired surface burner head.
2. Push in and turn the control knob slowly to Light.
3. When the burner lights, adjust the flame to the desired
level.
Surface Control Knobs
Use to turn on the surface burners. An infinite choice of heat
settings is available from Low to High. The knobs can be set
on or between any of the settings.
Graphics next to the knob identify which burner the knob
controls. For example, the graphic at left shows the
left front burner location.

Surface Cooking
Cooktop
Burner Grates
The grates must be properly positioned before cooking.
Lower the grates onto the range so that the bars match up
and the rubber feet located at the four corners of the grates
sit in the indentations on the cooktop.
To prevent the cooktop from discoloring or
staining:
• Clean cooktop after each use.
• Wipe acidic or sugary spills as soon as the cooktop has
Improper installation or removal of the grates may result in
chipping or scratching of the cooktop. It may also cause pans
to be unsteady on the grates.
cooled as these spills may discolor the
porcelain.
Unlike a range with standard gas burners,
this cooktop does not lift-up nor is it
removable. Do not attempt to lift the
cooktop for any reason.
Sealed Burners
The sealed burner bases of your range are secured to the
cooktop and are not designed to be removed. Since the
burners are sealed into the cooktop, boilovers or spills will not
seep underneath the cooktop.
Do not operate the burners without a pan on the grate.
The grate’s porcelain finish may chip without a pan to
absorb the heat from the burner flame.
Use care when stirring food in a pot/pan sitting on the burner
grate. The grates have a smooth finish for ease of cleaning.
The pot/pan will slide if the handle is not held. This may result
in spilling of hot food items and may be a burn hazard.
However, the burner base should be cleaned after each use.
The cap portion of the burner is easily removed for cleaning.
(See page 20 for cleaning directions.)
The burner caps must be correctly placed on the burner base
for proper operation of the burner.
Although the burner grates are durable, they will gradually
lose their shine and/or discolor, due to the high temperatures
of the gas flame.
High Performance Burners
Notes:
There is one 16,000 BTU* high speed burner on your range,
located in the left front position. There is a 12,000 BTU*
burner located in the right front position. These burners offer
higher speed cooking that can be used to quickly bring water
to a boil and for large-quantity cooking.
• A properly adjusted burner with clean ports will light
within a few seconds. If using natural gas, the flame
will be blue with a deeper blue inner cone.
Simmer Burner
If the burner flame is yellow or is noisy, the air/gas
mixture may be incorrect. Contact a service technician
to adjust. (Adjustments are not covered by the warranty.)
This burner is located in the center position. The
simmer burner offers a lower BTU* flame for delicate
sauces or melting chocolate.
With LP gas, slight yellow tips on the flames are
acceptable. This is normal and adjustment is not
necessary.
• With some types of gas, you may hear a “popping”
* BTU ratings will vary when using LP gas.
sound when the surface burner is turned off. This is a
normal operating sound of the burner.
• If the control knob is turned very quickly from High to
Low, the flame may go out, particularly if the burner is
cold. If this occurs, turn the knob to the OFF position,
wait several seconds and relight the burner.
• The flame should be adjusted so it does not extend
beyond the edge of the pan.

Maintenance
Oven Doors
Oven Windows
To protect the oven door windows:
CAUTION
1. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents such as steel wool
scouring pads or powdered cleansers as they may scratch
the glass.
• Do not place excessive weight on or stand on open oven
doors. This could cause the range to tip over, break the
doors, or injure the user.
• Do not attempt to open or close doors or operate oven
until doors are properly replaced.
2. Do not hit the glass with pots, pans, furniture, toys, or other
objects.
• Never place fingers between hinge and front oven frame.
Hinge arms are spring mounted. If accidentally hit, the
hinge will slam shut against oven frame and could injure
your fingers.
3. Do not close an oven door until the oven racks are in place.
Scratching, hitting, jarring or stressing the glass may weaken
its structure causing an increased risk of breakage at a later
date.
Both the upper and lower oven doors are removable.
Upper and Lower Oven Lights
To remove:
CAUTION
1. When cool, open the oven door to the first stop position
(opened about four inches).
• Disconnect power to oven before replacing light bulb.
2. Grasp door at each side. Do not use the door handle to lift
door.
• Allow oven to cool before replacing light bulb.
• Make sure bulb cover and bulb are cool before touching.
3. Lift up evenly until door clears hinge arms.
To assure the proper replacement bulb is used, order bulb from
Maytag. Call 1-877-232-6771 USA and 1-800-688-8408 Canada,
ask for part number 74009925 - halogen bulb.
To replace oven light bulbs:
1. Disconnect power to the range.
2. When oven is cool, use fingertips to grasp edge of bulb cover.
Pull out and remove.
To replace:
1. Grasp door at each side.
3. Carefully remove old bulb by pulling straight out of ceramic
base.
2. Align slots in the door with the hinge arms on the range.
4. To avoid damaging or decreasing the life of the new bulb, do
not touch the bulb with bare hands or fingers. Hold with a
cloth or paper towel. Push new bulb prongs straight into
small holes of ceramic base.
3. Slide the door down onto the hinge arms until the door is
completely seated on the hinges. Push down on the top
corners of the door to completely seat door on hinges.
Door should not appear crooked.
5. Replace bulb cover by snapping into place.
6. Reconnect power to range. Reset clock.
Note: The oven door on a new range may feel “spongy”
when it is closed. This is normal and will decrease with use.

Maintenance
Leveling Legs
Electrical Connection
Appliances which require electrical power
are equipped with a three-prong
grounding plug which must be plugged
directly into a properly grounded threehole 120 volt electrical outlet.
CAUTION
Be sure the anti-tip bracket secures one of the rear
leveling legs to the floor. This bracket prevents the range
from accidentally tipping.
Always disconnect power to appliance before servicing.
The three-prong grounding plug offers protection against
shock hazards. DO NOT CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD
GROUNDING PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD PLUG.
Be sure the range is leveled when installed. If
the range is not level, turn the leveling legs,
located at each corner of the range, until
range is level.
If an ungrounded, two-hole or other type electrical outlet is
encountered, it is the personal responsibility of the
appliance owner to have the outlet replaced with a
properly grounded three-hole electrical outlet.

Troubleshooting
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
For most concerns, try these first.
•
•
•
•
Check if oven controls have been properly set.
Check to be sure plug is securely inserted into receptacle.
Check or re-set circuit breaker. Check or replace fuse.
Check power or gas supply.
Surface burner fails to light.
• Check to be sure unit is properly connected to power supply.
• Check for a blown circuit fuse or a tripped main circuit breaker.
• Check to be sure ignitor is dry and clicking. Burner will not light if ignitor is damaged,
soiled or wet. If ignitor doesn’t click, turn control knob OFF.
• Burner ports may be clogged.
The flame is uneven.
• Burner ports may be clogged.
Surface burner flame lifts
off ports.
• Check to be sure a pan is sitting on the grate above.
Clock, icons and/or
lights operate but oven does
not heat.
• Oven may be set for a Cook & Hold or Delay function.
• The Oven Control Lockout may have been set. (See page 9.)
Oven light and/or clock
does not function.
• The light bulb is loose or defective.
• The oven light does not work during self-cleaning process.
• Oven may be in Sabbath Mode. (See page 15.)
Baking results are not as
expected or differ from
previous oven.
• Check the oven temperature selected. Make sure oven is preheated when recipe
or directions recommend preheat.
• Make sure the oven vent has not been blocked. See page 16 for location.
• Check to make sure range is level.
• Temperatures often vary between a new oven and an old one. As ovens age, the oven
temperature often “drifts” and may become hotter or cooler. See page 15 for
instructions on adjusting the oven temperature. Note: It is not recommended to
adjust the temperature if only one or two recipes are in question.
• Use correct pan. Dark pans produce dark browning. Shiny pans produce light
browning.
• Check rack positions and pan placement. Allow 1-2 inches between pans and oven
wall.
• Check the use of foil in the oven. Never use foil to cover an entire oven rack. Place
a small piece of foil on the rack below the pan to catch spillovers.
Food is not broiling properly or
smokes excessively.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Check oven rack positions. Food may be too close to flame.
Aluminum foil was incorrectly used. Never line the broiler insert with foil.
Trim excess fat from meat before broiling.
A soiled broiler pan was used.
Preheat oven for 5 minutes before placing food in the oven.
Broil with the oven door closed.

Troubleshooting
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
Oven will not self-clean.
•
•
•
•
Oven did not clean properly.
• Longer cleaning time may be needed.
• Excessive spillovers, especially sugary and/or acidic foods, were not removed prior
to the self-clean cycle.
Oven door will not unlock after
self-clean cycle.
• Oven interior is still hot. Allow about one hour for the oven to cool after the
completion of a self-clean cycle. The door can be opened when the LOCK indicator
word is not displayed.
• The control and door may be locked. See page 9.
Moisture collects on oven window
or steam comes from oven vent.
• This is normal when cooking foods high in moisture.
• Excessive moisture was used when cleaning the window.
There is a strong odor or light
smoke when oven is turned on.
• This is normal for a new range and will disappear after a few uses. Initiating a clean
cycle will “burn off” the odors more quickly.
• Turning on a ventilation fan will help remove the smoke and/or odor.
• Excessive food soils on the oven bottom. Use a self-clean cycle.
Fault Codes
• BAKE or LOCK may flash rapidly in the display to alert you if there is an error
or a problem. If BAKE or LOCK appear in the display, press the CANCEL pad.
If BAKE or LOCK continue to flash, disconnect power to the appliance. Wait a
few minutes, and then reconnect power. If the flashing still continues,
disconnect power to the appliance and call an authorized servicer.
• If the oven is heavily soiled, excessive flareups may result in a fault code during
cleaning. Press the CANCEL pad and allow the oven to cool completely, wipe out
excess soil, then reset the clean cycle. If the fault code reappears, contact an
authorized servicer.
Noises may be heard.
• The oven makes several low level noises. You may hear the oven relays as they go on
and off. This is normal.
• As the oven heats and cools, you may hear sounds of metal parts expanding and
contracting. This is normal and will not damage your appliance.
There are no beeps and
no display.
• Oven may be in Sabbath Mode. See page 15.
Check to make sure the cycle is not set for a delayed start. See pages 18-19.
Check if door is closed.
Check if control is in Sabbath Mode. See page 15.
Oven may be over 400° F. Oven temperature must be below 400° F to program a
clean cycle.
