IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
COOK TOP
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
OVEN
•Know which knob controls each surface heating unit. Place
a pan of food on the unit before turning it on, and turn the unit
off before removing the pan.
•Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped with one or
more surface units of different sizes. Select utensils having flat
bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating element.
The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the
heating element to direct contact and may result in ignition of
clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to element will also
improve efficiency.
•Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend
Over Adjacent Surface Units—To reduce the risk of burns,
ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional
contact with the utensil, the handle of the utensil should be
positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over
adjacent surface units.
•Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat Settings—
Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or
a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
•Do Not Immerse or Soak Removable Heating Elements—
Heating elements should never be immersed in water. Heating
elements clean themselves during normal operation.
•Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass, glass/
ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are
suitable for cook top service without breaking due to the sudden
change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s
recommendations for cook top use.
•When flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn the fan
on.
•Use Care When Opening Oven Door or Warmer Drawer (if
equipped)—Stand to the side of the range when opening the
door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you
remove or replace food in the oven.
•Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven vent is located
under the left rear surface element if your model is equipped
with coil elements. The oven vent is located below the backguard
for models equipped with ceramic-glass cook tops. Touching the
surfaces in this area when the oven is operating may cause severe
burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or
near the oven vent. These items could melt or ignite.
•Placement of Oven Racks. Always place oven racks in desired
location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is
hot use extreme caution. Use potholders and grasp the rack with
both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot
heating elements in the oven. Remove all utensils from the rack
before moving.
•Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The broiler pan
and its insert allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away from
the high heat of the broiler.
•Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil. Exposed
fat and grease could ignite.
•Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven
bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual.
Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric
shock, or fire. Improper installation of these liners may result in
risk of electric shock, or fire.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR
RANGE
FOR CERAMIC-GLASS COOK TOP MODELS
•Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that
could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area underneath
each surface element. Do not allow grease to accumulate.
•Kitchen cleaners and aerosols—Always follow the
manufacturer’s recommended directions for use. Be aware
that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite
causing damage and injury.
•Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently—Grease should not be
allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter. Follow
manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
•Do Not Cook on Broken Cook Top—If cook top should break,
cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cook
top and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified
technician immediately.
•Clean Cook Top with Caution—If a wet sponge or cloth is used
to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to avoid a steam
burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a
hot surface.
SELF CLEANING OVENS
•Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts listed in this
Owner’s Guide. Before self cleaning the oven, remove the
broiler pan and any utensils or foods from the oven.
•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.
•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.
•The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given
off during the self-cleaning cycle of any range. Move birds to
another well-ventilated room.

Surface Cooking for
Models with a CeramicGlass Cook Top
NOTE: Please read detailed instructions
for Ceramic-Glass Cooktop Cleaning in
the General Cleaning and Avoid
Service Checklist sections of this Use
and Care Guide.
NOTE: Radiant elements have a limiter
that allows the element to cycle on and
off, even at the HI setting. This helps to
prevent damage to the glasstop. Cycling
at the HI setting is normal and can
occur if the pan is too small for the
element or if the pan bottom is not flat.
Ceramic-Glass Cooktop
The ceramic-glass cooktop has electric heating coils located below the surface
of the glass. The design of the glass cooktop outlines the area of the surface
unit below. Most importantly, make sure the diameter of the pan matches the
diameter of the unit. Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop
to the cooking utensil. Only flat-bottomed pans should be used. The type and
size of the cookware, number of surface units in use and the settings of the
units are factors that will affect the amount of heat that will spread to areas
surrounding the surface units. The areas surrounding the units may become
hot enough to cause burns.
The cooktop should not be used as a cutting board or work surface in the
kitchen. Dropping heavy or hard objects on the cooktop may crack it. Pans with
rough bottoms may scratch the cooktop surface. Do not place foods directly
on the smoothtop surface (without cooking utensils) damage to glass or
difficulty in cleaning will result.
Radiant Surface Units
The Radiant Surface Unit is a group of heating coils enclosed in a ceramic fixture
below the glass cooktop. The unit temperature rises gradually and evenly. As
the temperature rises, the unit will glow red. To maintain the selected setting,
the unit will cycle on and off. The heating unit retains enough heat to provide
a uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle. The ceramic fixture
thermally insulates the heating unit, concentrating heat in the heating zone.
For efficient cooking, turn off the unit several minutes before cooking is
complete. This will allow residual heat to complete the cooking process. The
amount of residual heat depends on the type and quality of cooking utensil,
the quantity of food being cooked and the selected heat setting.
Dual Radiant Surface Units (If equipped)
The dual radiant surface unit is made up of an inner and outer coil within the
same surface unit. A control knob and rocker switch is used for operating the
different coils. The smaller unit or inner coil has a lower wattage and can be
used to prepare smaller quantities of food in smaller pans. The larger unit or
both inner and outer coils has a higher wattage and can be used to prepare
larger quantities of food in larger pans. When using the outer coil, both inner
and outer coils operate.
Indicator Light(s)
There are 2 different surface control lights that will glow on your range—a
surface indicator and a hot cooktop surface indicator.
The surface indicator, located on the control panel, glows when any surface
unit is turned on. A quick glance at the light after cooking is an easy check to
be sure all surface controls are turned off.
The hot cooktop surface indicator, located under the glass cooktop or on the
control panel, will come on as the surface cooking area heats up and will
continue to glow until the glass cooktop has cooled down to a moderate level.

Setting Surface
Controls for Models
with Radiant Elements
Radiant Surface Unit Control
To Operate Radiant Surface Unit
1. Place cooking utensil on the surface element.
2. Push in and turn the Surface Control knob in either direction to the desired
setting. Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn
to a lower setting to finish cooking. The control knobs do not have to be
set exactly on a particular mark. Use the marks as a guide and adjust the
control knob as needed. Each surface unit provides a constant amount of
heat at each setting. A glowing red surface unit extending beyond the
bottom edge of the utensil indicates the utensil is too small for the unit.
3. When cooking is completed, turn the surface element off before removing
the pan. Note: The surface signal light will glow when one or more
elements are turned on. A quick glance at the signal light(s) when cooking
is finished is an easy check to be sure all control knobs are turned off. The
hot cooktop surface light will continue to glow after the control knob is
turned to off and will glow until the element has cooled sufficiently.
To Operate Dual Radiant Surface Unit (If equipped)
Set the rocker switch to the desired coil size. Indicates inner coil only.
Indicates both inner and outer coils operate. You may switch from either
coil setting at any time during cooking. Push in and turn the Control Knob in
either direction to the desired setting as instructed above.
To Operate Simmer Select Surface Unit (If equipped)
Dual Radiant Surface Unit Control
The right side of the control knob allows you to use the Simmer Select unit as
you would any normal surface unit on the medium to high settings.
The left side of the control knob is used to operate the Simmer Select feature.
This feature allows the element to heat at a much lower temperature than
when used as a normal surface unit. This allows you to precisely simmer
delicate foods.
Simmer Select Surface Unit Control
After turning a Radiant
Surface Unit OFF, be careful not to
touch either unit until it has had enough
time to COOL. Surface Units will turn
dark in color after they have been turned
off and burns may occur if the units are
touched at this time.
Do not place plastic
items such as salt and pepper shakers,
spoon holders or plastic wrappings
on top of the range when it is in use.
These items could melt or ignite.
Potholders, towels or wooden spoons
could catch fire if placed too close to
the unit.
When using the Simmer
Select feature the element will not glow
red when it is hot.
You may switch between normal cooking and Simmer Select at any time during
the cooking process. Be sure to set the knob indicator between MAX and MIN
for simmering or between MED and HI for normal cooking.
NOTE: The unit will not operate if the knob is positioned in the space between
MAX and MED.
The suggested settings found in the chart below are based on cooking in
medium-weight aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using other
types of pans.

Setting Warm Zone
Controls (if equipped)
To Operate the Warm Zone
Use the warm zone to keep cooked
foods hot such as: vegetables, gravies,
casseroles, soups, stews, breads,
pastries and oven-safe dinner plates.
The purpose of the warm zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving
temperature. Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold
food on the warm zone.
All food placed on the warm zone should be covered with a lid or aluminum
foil to maintain quality. For best results, when warming pastries or breads, the
cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape. Do not use plastic
wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very difficult
to clean.
Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop
use on the warm zone.
Unlike the surface elements, the warm zone will not glow red
when it is hot.
Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from
the warm zone as cookware and plates will be hot.

Benefits of Speed Bake™ Cooking
System:
—Foods cook up to 30% faster, saving
time and energy.
—Two racks can be used with more
even cooking and browning.
—No special pans or bakeware needed.
Speed Bake™ Cooking System - (If equipped)
Speed Bake™ Cooking System uses a fan to circulate the oven's heat
uniformly and continuously around the oven. This improved heat distribution
allows for fast, even cooking and browning results. It also gives better baking
results when using two racks at the same time.
Heated air flows around the food from all sides, sealing in juices and flavors.
Meats cooked with Speed Bake™ Cooking System are juicer. Poultry is crisp
on the outside while staying tender and moist on the inside. Breads and pastry
brown more evenly. Most foods baked in a standard oven can be cooked faster
and more evenly with Speed Bake™ Cooking System.

Self-Cleaning
During the self-cleaning
cycle, the outside of the range can
become very hot to the touch. DO NOT
leave small children unattended near
the appliance.
The health of some birds
is extremely sensitive to the fumes given
off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
range. Move birds to another wellventilated room.
DO NOT line the oven
walls, racks, bottom or any other part
of the range with aluminum foil. Doing
so will destroy heat distribution,
produce poor baking results and cause
permanent damage to the oven interior
(aluminum foil will melt to the interior
surface of the oven).
DO NOT force the oven
door open. This can damage the
automatic door locking system. Use
caution when opening the door after
the self-cleaning cycle is completed.
The oven may still be VERY HOT.
Self-Cleaning Oven
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking
temperatures) which eliminate soil completely or reduce it to a fine powdered
ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.
1. Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
• Allow the oven to cool before precleaning.
• Wear rubber gloves when precleaning and while wiping up the residue
after the self-clean cycle.
• DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any
part of the self-cleaning oven.
• DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The woven material of the oven door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage
or remove the gasket.
• DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so
could cause damage.
2. Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils and any aluminum foil.
These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures.
3. Oven racks may be left in the oven or may be removed. If they go through
the clean cycle their color will turn slightly blue and the finish will be dull.
After the cycle is complete and the oven has cooled, rub the sides of the
racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of baby oil or
salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack position).
4. Remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the selfcleaning cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers
can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. DO
NOT allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk,
tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as
they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.
5. Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door
gasket and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. These
areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water.
16
Self-Cleaning
Use care when opening
the oven door after the self-cleaning
cycle. Stand to the side of the oven
when opening the door to allow hot air
or steam to escape.
To Start the Self-Clean Cycle
*We recommend a 2 hour self-clean cycle for light soils and a 3 hour cycle for
average to heavy soils (to assure satisfactory results).
To Set the Controls for a Self-Clean Cycle:
1. Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day.
DO NOT force the oven
door open. This can damage the
automatic door locking system. Use
caution when opening the door after
the self-cleaning cycle is completed.
The oven may still be VERY HOT.
2. Push
3. Push the
the
. "— — —" appears in the display.
until "3:00" appears in the display for a 3 hour cycle, or push
until "2:00" appears in the display for a 2 hour cycle.
4. As soon as the
or
is released, "CLn" appears in the display.
5. As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven lock will begin to close
automatically and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the
door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the lock to
close).
6. The "LOCK" light will glow until the cleaning cycle is completed or cancelled,
and the oven temperature has cooled.
When the Self-Clean Cycle is Completed:
1. The time of day or “End” will appear in the display window and the “Clean”
and "LOCK" light will continue to glow.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has
gone out, the oven door can be opened.
3. If “End” is in the display and the “Clean” indicator remains on, press
CANCEL or CLEAR. The time of day will appear in the display.
Stopping or Interrupting a Self-Cleaning Cycle
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a self-cleaning cycle due to excessive
smoke or fire:
1. Push CLEAR or CANCEL
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has
gone out, the oven door can be opened.
3. Correct the condition which caused the smoking.
4. Restart the self-clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.

General Cleaning
Cleaning Various Parts of Your Range
Surfaces
How to Clean
Glass, Painted and Plastic Control
Knobs, Body Parts, and Decorative
Trim
For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils
and built-up grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on
soil for 30 to 60 minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use
abrasive cleaners on any of these materials; they can scratch. To remove
control knobs, turn to the OFF position; grasp firmly and pull straight off the
shaft. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob
and the shaft; then push the knob into place.
Stainless Steel, Chrome Control Panel,
Decorative Trim
Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls to OFF and remove the
control knobs. To remove, pull each knob straight off the shaft. Clean using
hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with a clean water and a dishcloth.
Cover stubborn spots with an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40
minutes. Rinse. Be sure to squeeze excess water from the cloth before wiping
the panel; especially when wiping around the controls. Excess water in or
around the controls may cause damage to the appliance. Cleaners made
especially for stainless steel such as Stainless Steel Magic, trademark of Magic
American Corp., or similar products are recommended. Always follow the
manufacturer's instructions. Be sure to rinse the cleaners as bluish stains may
occur during heating and cannot be removed. To replace knobs after cleaning,
line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into
place.
Porcelain Enamel Broiler Pan and
Insert, Door Liner, Body Parts, Warmer
Drawer (if equipped)
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with
a 1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots
with an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean
water and a damp cloth, and then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse
and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may
become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners on
the cooktop.
Oven Racks
Oven racks may be removed or left in the oven during the self-clean cycle for
cleaning. If removed, clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following
manufacturer's instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry.
Aluminum (Trim Pieces) & Vinyl
Before cleaning any part of the range, be sure all controls are turned OFF and
the range is cool. Remove spillovers and heavy soiling as soon as possible.
Regular cleanings will reduce the effort required for major cleanings later.
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.
If the racks are cleaned in the self-clean cycle, their color will turn slightly blue
and the finish will be dull. After the self-clean cycle is complete, and the oven
has cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a
small amount of baby oil or salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into
the rack positions).
Oven Door
To clean oven door, wash with hot, soapy water and a clean cloth. DO NOT
immerse the door in water.
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The oven door gasket is made of a woven
material, on self cleaning models, which is essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage or remove the gasket.
18
General Cleaning Ceramic Glass Cooktop
DO NOT use a cooktop
cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes
can be hazardous to your health, and
can chemically damage the ceramicglass surface.
Before cleaning the
cooktop, be sure the controls are turned
to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
Ceramic-Glass Cooktop Cleaning
Correct and consistent cleaning is essential to maintaining your ceramic-glass
cooktop. If food spills, grease spatters and metal rub-off from aluminum
cookware are not removed, they may be burned onto the surface of the
cooktop and cause permanent discoloration.
Daily Cleaning
For normal soil:
1. Allow cooktop surface to cool.
2. Wipe up spills and spatters using a clean paper towel. Always use a new,
clean paper towel when cleaning the ceramic-glass cooktop.
3. Rub a few drops of a recommended ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning cream
onto soiled area using a clean, damp paper towel. Buff with a dry paper
towel until all soil and cream are removed. Frequent cleaning leaves a
protective coating of silicone which helps in preventing scratches and
abrasions. Clean surface with the cooktop cleaning cream after each use.
4. Rinse with another clean damp, paper towel. Buff dry with a dry paper
towel.
For heavy, burned-on soil:
1. Allow cooktop surface to cool.
2. Carefully scrape soil with a metal razor blade scraper. Hold razor blade
scraper at a 30° angle to the cooktop.
3. Remove loosened soil with a clean paper towel.
4. Apply cooktop cleaning cream as described for normal soil.
5. If any soil remains, repeat the steps listed above. After all soil has been
removed, polish the entire surface with the cooktop cleaning cream.
For sugary spillovers:
Sugary spills can cause pitting of your cooktop surface. Therefore, you must
begin cleaning the spills while the cooktop is still hot. Use caution when
following the steps below.
1. Turn off all surface units and remove all pans immediately.
2. Wearing an oven mitt, use a razor blade scraper to scrape the hot spill out
of the cooking zone to a cooler area on the cooktop.
3. Allow the cooktop to cool.
4. Follow the instructions above for heavy, burned-on soil.
DO NOT use the following on the ceramic-glass cooktop:
• Abrasive plastic, nylon, metal scouring or cloth pads. They may scratch the
cooktop and make it more difficult to clean later.
• Sponges, cloths or dish towels. Lint or soil remaining on the cooktop from
a cloth or sponge can burn and cause discoloration.
• Anything that may melt (plastics, aluminum foil).
• Cleansers other than a recommended ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning
cream.
• Chlorine bleach, ammonia, hydrofluoric acid, chemical oven cleaners or
any other kind of chemical cleaner. They may etch or discolor the cooktop.

Avoid Service Checklist
Before you call for service, review this list. It may save you time and expense.
The list includes common occurrences that are not the result of defective
workmanship or materials in this appliance.
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION
Range is not level.
Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven
rack. Adjust leveling legs at base of range until the oven rack is level.
Be sure floor is level and is strong and stable enough to adequately support
range.
If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear unlevel. Be sure cabinets
are square and have sufficient room for range clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily.
Appliance must be accessible for
service.
Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly. Contact builder or installer to
make appliance accessible.
Surface element too hot or not hot
enough.
Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface
element to be used.
Carpet interferes with range. Provide sufficient space so range can be lifted
over carpet.
Lightweight or warped pans used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or
heavyweight cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped pans. Cookware
materials and weight of the material affect heating. Heavy- and mediumweight pans heat evenly. Because lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may
burn easily.
Surface element does not heat.
No power to the appliance. Check steps under "Entire Appliance Does Not
Operate" in this Avoid Service Checklist.
Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface
element to be used.
