Gas fuels and combustion can
result in potential exposure to
chemicals known to cause cancer
or reproductive harm. For example,
benzene is a chemical which is a
part of the gas supplied to the
range. It is consumed in the flame
during combustion. However,
exposure to a small amount of
benzene is possible if a gas leak
occurs. Formaldehyde and soot
are by-products of incomplete combustion. Properly adjusted burners
with a bluish rather than a yellow
flame will minimize incomplete
combustion.
Do not operate the range if it is not
working properly, or if it has been
damaged.
Do not use the range for warming
or heating the room. Persons could
be burned or injured, or a fire could
start.
Use the range only for its intended
use as described in this manual.
Do not wear loose or hanging
garments when using the range.
They could ignite if they touch a hot
surface burner and you could be
burned.
Do not touch surface burners,
areas near burners or interior
surfaces of oven. Areas near
surface burners and interior
surfaces of an oven become hot
enough to cause burns. During
use, do not touch, or let clothing or
other flammable materials contact
surface burners, areas near
surface burners or interior surfaces
of oven. Other surfaces of the
range may become hot enough to
cause burns; such as, the oven
vent opening, the surface near the
vent opening, the cooktop, the
oven door and window.
Make sure the utensils you use are
large enough to contain food and
avoid boil-overs and spill-overs.
Heavy splattering or spill-overs left
on a range can ignite and burn you.
Pan size is especially important in
deep fat frying.
l Turn pan handles inward, but not
over other surface burners. This will
help reduce the chance of burns,
igniting of flammable materials, and
spills due to bumping of the pan.
l Use only dry potholders.
Moist or
damp potholders on surface burners
may result in burns from steam. Do
not let potholder touch surface
burners. Do not use a towel or bulky
cloth for a potholder. They could
catch on fire.
l Check to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe for use on the
range. Only certain types of glass,
glass-ceramic, ceramic, earthenware or other glazed utensils are
suitable for ranges without breaking
due to the sudden change in
temperature.
9 Do not use decorative covers or
trivets over the surface burners.
l Do not heat unopened
containers.
They could explode. The hot
contents could cause burns and
container particles could cause
injury.
l Grease is flammable
and should be
handled carefully. Let fat cool before
attempting to handle it. Do not allow
grease to collect around cooktop or
in vents. Wipe spill-overs immediately.
l Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flaming pan on range by
covering with a well-fitted lid, cookie
sheet or flat tray. Flaming grease
outside of pan can be extinguished
l
l

l
l
with baking soda or, if available, a
multipurpose dry chemical or
foam-type extinguisher.
Never leave surface burners unattended at high heat settings. A
boil-over could result and cause
smoking and greasy spill-overs
that may ignite.
Make sure surface burners are off
when you are finished, and when
you aren’t watching.
Use care when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing food.
Always position oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool.
Do not store flammable materials
on or near the range. They could
explode or burn.
Do not store things children might
want above the range. Children
could be burned or injured while
climbing on it.
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.
Never use a match or other flame
to look for a gas leak. Explosion
and injury could result.
. Know where your main gas shut
off valve is located.
. Keep range vents unobstructed.
0 Clean your range regularly. See
care and cleaning instructions in
this manual.
0 Be sure all range parts are cool
before cleaning.
l Do not clean door heat seal. It is
essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub,
damage, or move the seal. Clean
only parts recommended in this
Use and Care Guide.
l Do not use oven cleaners.
No
commercial oven cleaner or oven
liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any
part of the oven.
l Before self-cleaning
the oven,
remove broiler pan, broiler grid,
oven racks and other utensils. Do
not use your oven to clean
miscellaneous parts.
l 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.
l Disconnect the electrical supply
before servicing the range.

Do not clean
center area
Before you start
1. Clean the areas shown by hand.
They do not get hot enough during
the Self-Cleaning cycle for soil to
burn away. Use hot water and
detergent or a soapy steel wool pad
on...
l The inside of the door. (The center
area of the door does not need to be
hand cleaned.)
l The frame around the oven.
Do not clean, move or bend the
fiberglass seal. Poor cleaning and
poor baking will result.
2. Remove the broiler pan and any
pots and pans you may have stored
in the oven.
NOTE: The broiler pan (without grid)
can be cleaned in the oven only if most
of the soil has been removed by handcleaning or a dishwasher. The chrome
broiler grid will discolor if cleaned in the
Self-Cleaning cycle.
3. Wipe out any loose soil or grease.
This will help reduce smoke during
the Self-Cleaning cycle.
4. If you want the oven racks to
remain shiny, remove from the
oven and clean them by hand.
Otherwise, put oven racks on second
and fourth guides (guides are
counted from bottom to top). After
racks are cleaned in the SelfCleaning cycle, they become harder
to slide. See page 23.
Turn on a vent hood or other
kitchen vent during the Self-Cleaning
cycle. This will help remove heat
and odors that are normal during the
cycle.

Personal Injury and Product
Damage Hazard
l Do not touch
the oven during
the Self-Cleaning cycle. It could
burn you.
l Do not use commercial
oven
cleaners in your oven. Cleaners
may produce hazardous fumes
or damage the porcelain finish.
. 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.
l Do not use foil or other liners
in
the oven. During the SelfCleaning cycle foil can burn or
melt and damage the oven
surface.
l Do not block the vent during
the
Self-Cleaning cycle. Air must
move freely for best cleaning
results.
l Do not leave plastic
utensils
near the vent. They may melt.
Setting the controls
1. Set the Oven Selector and Oven
Temperature Control to CLEAN.
20
Make sure the Clock, Start and Stop
Times all have the right time of day.
Push in and turn the Stop Time Knob
clockwise 2-4 hours.
. Use 2 hours for light soil.
. Use 3 hours for moderate soil.
l Use 3-4 hours for heavy soil.
4. Move the Lock Lever to the right the Clean position. This will start the
Self-Cleaning cycle. If the door is not
completely closed or the lever is not
all the way to the right, the cycle will
not start.
When the oven temperature
exceeds normal baking temperatures, the door can’t be opened and
the Lock Lever must not be moved.
5. After the Self-Cleaning cycle is
completed and the oven temperature has dropped below 500°F
(SSO’C), the Clean Light goes off and
the Lock Lever can be moved back
to the COOK position. Do not force
it. Wait until it moves easily. Turn the
Oven Selector and Oven Temperature Control to OFF.
6. After the oven is cool, wipe off any
residue or ash with a damp cloth. If
needed, touch up spots with a soapy
steel wool pad.
Special tips
Keep the kitchen well ventilated
during the Self-Cleaning cycle to help
get rid of heat, odors and smoke.
l Clean the oven before it gets heavily
soiled. Cleaning a very soiled oven
takes longer and results in more
smoke than usual.
l If the Self-Cleaning
cycle doesn’t 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 hand clean areas noted on page 19.

21
Caring For Your Range
Continued
To stop the Self-Cleaning cycle at
any time:
1. Push in and turn the Stop Time Knob
clockwise until it points to the time
indicated on the clock.
2. Turn the Oven Selector and Oven
Temperature Control to OFF. When
the oven temperature drops below
500°F (260%), move the Lock Lever
to the COOK position. Do not force
it. Wait until it moves easily.
How it works
During the Self-Cleaning cycle, the
oven gets much hotter than it does for
baking or broiling...approximately
875°F
(468°C). This heat breaks up grease
and soil and burns it off.
