Important Safety Instructions
Continued
Install or locate the range only in
accordance with the provided
Installation Instructions. It is recommended that the range be installed
by a qualified installer. The range
must be properly connected to the
proper gas supply and checked for
leaks. The range must also be
properly connected to electrical
supply and grounded.

To reduce the risk of tipping of the
appliance, the appliance must be
secured by properly installed anti-tip
bracket(s). To check if the bracket(s)
is installed properly, remove the
storage drawer (see page 15) and
verify that the anti-tip bracket(s) is
engaged.
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,
carbon monoxide and soot are byproducts 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.
Do not attempt to light the oven
burner during a power failure.
Personal injury could result.
Use the range only for its intended
use as described in this manual.
9 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.
l 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.
l 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.
l
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 spillovers 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 with baking soda or,
if available, a multipurpose dry
chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
l Never leave surface burners unattended at high heat settings. A
boil-over could result and cause
smoking and greasy spill-overs
that may ignite.
l
Make sure surface burners are off
when you are finished, and when
you are not watching.
. Use care when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing food.
l Always position oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool.
l
Do not store flammable materials
on or near the range. They could
explode or burn.
l
Do not store things children might
want above the range. Children
could be burned or injured while
climbing on it.
l
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.
l Never use a match or other flame
to look for a gas leak. Explosion
and injury could result.
l Know where your main gas shut
off valve is located.
9 Keep range vents unobstructed.
l Clean your range regularly. See
care and cleaning instructions in
this manual.
l
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.

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 26.
Heat and odors are normal during the
cycle. If needed, remove them by
opening a window or by turning on a
vent hood or other kitchen vent during
the Self-Cleaning cycle.

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.
This graph shows approximate
temperatures and times during a SelfCleaning cycle for 2 l/2 hours.

a live circuit with the proper voltage?
(See Installation Instructions.)
9 Have you checked your home’s main
fuses or circuit breaker box?
l Have instructions in this book been
followed?
l Is the control knob set in the correct
position?
l Is the flow of combustion
and/or
ventilation air to the unit obstructed?
Do not obstruct air flow to and
around unit.
9 Recheck suspected defect.
If the oven will not operate:
Is the Oven Selector turned to BAKE
or BROIL? If Oven Selector is turned
to TIME BAKE, wait 30-40 seconds for
oven to start.
l Is the Oven Temperature
Control
turned to a temperature setting?
l

power?
l Have you checked your home’s main
fuses or circuit breaker box?
l Are burner ports clogged? See
page 26.
l
If burner flames are uneven:
Are burner ports clogged? See
page 26.
l
