could be burned or injured.
*Do not operate the range if it is
damaged or not working properly.
@Do not use the range for warming
or heating the room. Persons
could be burned or injured, or a
fire could start.
muse the range only for its intended
use as described in this manual.
@Do not touch surface units, areas
near units, heating elements, or
interior surfaces of oven. Surface
units and heating elements could
be hot even though they are dark
in color. Areas near surface units
and interior surfaces of an oven
become hot enough to cause
burns. During and after use, do
not touch, or let clothing or other
flammable materials contact
surface units, areas near units,
heating elements, or interior surfaces of oven until they have had
sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the range, such as the
oven vent opening, the surface
near the vent opening, the
cooktop, and the oven door and
window could also become hot
enough to cause burns.
‘\
e
*Do not wear loose or hanging
garments when using the range.
They could ignite if they touch a
hot surface unit and you could be
burned.
continued on next page
@Use only dry pot holders. Moist
or damp pot holders on hot
surfaces could result in burns
from steam. Do not let pot holder
touch hot heating elements. Do
not use a towel or bulky cloth
for a pot holder. It could catch
on fire.
@Keep range vents unobstructed.
@Do not heat unopened containers. They could explode. The hot
contents could cause burns and
container particles could cause
injury.
ADO not store flammable materials
on or near the range. The fumes
could create an explosion and/or
fire hazard.
aCheck 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 cooktops without
breaking due to the sudden
change in temperature.
@Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings. A
boilover could result and cause
smoking and greasy spillovers
that could ignite.
When
@Turn pan handles inward, but
not over other surface units. This
will help reduce the chance of
burns, igniting of flammable materials, and spills due to bumping of
the pan.
using
the cooktop
@Make sure the reflector bowls
are in place during cooking.
Cooking without reflector bowls
could subject the wiring and
components underneath them
to damage.
*Do not line reflector bowls with
aluminum foil or other liners.
Improper installation of these
liners could result in a risk of
electric shock or fire.
@Select a pan with a flat bottom
that is about the same size as
the surface unit. If pan is smaller
than the surface unit, some of
the heating element will be
exposed and could result in the
igniting of clothing or pot holders.
Correct pan size also improves
cooking efficiency.

When
using
the oven
@Always position oven rack(s) in
desired location while oven is
cool. If a rack must be removed
while oven is hot, do not let pot
holder contact hot heating element in oven.
@Use care when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing food.
Grease
aGrease is flammable. Do not
allow grease to collect around
cooktop or in vents. Wipe spillovers immediately.
*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.
Care
and cleaning
aSmall amounts of formaldehyde
and carbon monoxide are given
off in the Self-Cleaning cycle
from fiberglass insulation and
food decomposition. Significant
exposure to these substances
could cause cancer or reproductive harm. Exposure can be
minimized by venting with a hood
or open window and wiping out
excess food spills prior to selfcleaning.
@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.
@Before self-cleaning the oven,
remove broiler pan, broiler grid,
oven racks, and other utensils.
Do not use your oven to clean
miscellaneous parts unless you
are instructed to do so in this Use
and Care Guide.
~DO not soak removable heating
elements in water. The element
will be damaged and shock or fire
could result. @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

NOTE: For best results and greater
energy efficiency, use only flat-bottomed
cookware that makes good contact with
the surface units. Cookware with rounded,
warped, ribbed (such as some porcelain
enamelware), or dented bottoms could
cause severe overheating, which damages
the cookware and/or surface unit.
You can, however, use the newer cookware available with slightly indented
bottoms or very small expansion channels.
This cookware is specially designed to
provide the good contact needed for best
cooking results.
Also, woks, canners, and teakettles with
flat bottoms suitable for use on your
cooktop are now available in most stores
that sell housewares.
The pan should have straight sides and a
tight-fiiing lid.
Choose medium to heavy gauge (thickness) pans that are fairly lightweight.

the bottom of the pan is not flat enough or
is too small for the surface unit. Prolonged
usage of incorrect utensils co&l result in
damage to the surface unit, cooktop,
wiring, and surrounding areas. To prevent
damage, use correct utensils, start cooking
on HI, and turn control down to continue
cooking.
Do not leave an empty utensil, or one
which has boiled dry, on a hot surface unit.
The utensil could overheat and coukl
damage the utensil or surface unit.
Use the largest surface unit for best
results. Also, use a canner/pan which can
be centered over the surface unit and which
does not ex-tenci more than one inch outside
surface unit area. Large diameter canners/
pans, if not properly centered, trap heat and
can cause damage to the cooktop.
Do not place canner on two surface units
at the same time. Too much heat will build
up and will damage the cooktop.
Start with hot water. This reduces the
time the control is set on HI. Reduce heat
setting to lowest position needed to keep
water boiling.
Keep reflector bowls clean for best heat
reflection.
To prolong the life of the elements:
- Prepare small batches at a time.
- Do not use elements for canning
all day.
Refer to your canner manual for specifE
instructions.
Optional canning kit
The large diameter of most water-bath or
pressure canners combined with high heat
settings for long periods of time can shorten
the life of regular surface units and cause
damage to the cooktop.
Positioning
For baking/roasting
racks
If you plan to use the cooktop for canning,
we recommend the installation of a Canning
Kit. Order the kit (Part No. 242995) from
your Roper dealer or authorized Roper
service company.

Personal Injury Hazard
Always position oven rack(s) in
desired location before turning oven
on. Be sure the rack(s) is level.
l If rack(s) must be moved while oven
is hot, use pot holders or oven mitts
to protect hands.
Failure to follow the above precautions
coukf result in personal injury.
l
When baking on two racks, arrange racks
on bottom and third level from bottom.
NOTE: For recommended rack placement
when broiling, see “Broiling rack position
chart” on page 15.
9
For best air circulation
Hot air must circulate around the pans in the
oven for even heat to reach all parts of the
oven. This resutts in better baking.
l Place the pans so that one is not directly
over the other.
l For best results, allow 1% to 2 inches
(4-5 cm) of space around each pan and
between pans and oven walls. There must
be a minimum space of 1 inch (3 cm).
l Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at
one time.
Use the following as a guide to determine
where to place the pans:
One pan
Place in the center of the oven rack.
Two pans
Place in opposite corners of the oven rack.
Three or four pans
Place in opposite corners on each oven rack.
Stagger pans so no pan is directly over another.
Using
aluminum
foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers
from pies or casseroles:
l Place the foil on the oven rack below the
rack with the food. Turn up foil edges and
make sure foil is about 1 inch (3 cm)
l
l
larger all around than the dish holding
the food.
Do not cover the entire rack with aluminum foil. It will reduce air circulation and
cause poor cooking results.
Do not line oven bottom or entire oven
rack with foil or other liners. Poor baking
will result.
Electrical Shock and Fire Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements.
Failure to follow this precaution could
resuft in electrical shock or fire hazard
and damage to the elements.

If food is cooking too fast, turn the Oven
Temperature Control Knob counterclockwise until the OVEN HEATING Indicator
Light goes off.
If you want the food to broil slower from
the start, set the Oven Temperature
Control Knob between 170°F and 325°F
(77°C and 153%). These temperature
settings allow the broil heating element to
cycle and to slow cooking. The lower the
temperature, the slower the cooking.
Fish and chicken are some foods that
may cook better if you use lower broiling
temperatures.
The Oven Selector must be on BROIL
for all broiling temperatures.
NOTE: Leave the oven door partly open
whenever using the oven to broil. This
allows the oven to maintain proper temperatures.

Broiling
tips
l
Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling.
l
They are designed to drain excess liquid
and grease away from the cooking surface
to help prevent spatter, smoke, or fire.
After broiling, remove the broiler pan
from the oven when you remove the food.
Drippings will bake on the pan if you leave
it in the heated oven.
Fire Hazard
l
Place meat the correct distance
(about 3”) from the element.
@To ensure adequate grease drainage,
do not use cookie sheets or similar
pans for broiling. Also, covering the
broiler grid with foil is not recommended. If foil is used, cut slits in foil
to line up with all openings in broiler
grid. Grease can then drain away and
cool in pan.
Failure to follow the above could result
in fire, burns, or other personal injury.

Energy
saving
tips
Although the energy used for cooking is
usually a very small percentage of the total
energy used in the home, cooking energy
can be used efficiently. Here are some tips
to help you save energy when using your
cooking product:
l Use pans with flat bottoms,
straight sides,
and tight-fitting lids.
l Match
the pan to the surface unit size.
l Cook with a minimum
of liquid or fat to
help shorten cooking time.
l Preheat
pans only when recommended
and for the shortest time possible.
l Start
food on higher heat settings, then set
surface unit control on low or off to finish
cooking. Use retained heat for cooking
when possible.
l Use the more efficient
surface units
instead of the oven when possible.
16
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
Turn on the surface unit only after placing
filled pan on the unit.
“Oven peeking” may cause heat loss,
longer cooking times, and unsatisfactory
baking results. Rely on your timer to keep
track of the cooking time.
Bake cakes, pies, or cookies when the
oven is warm. Best time to bake is right
after a meal has been cooked in the oven.
Preheat the oven no longer than necessary.
Plan your meals for the most efficient use
of the range. When using the oven to cook
one food, try to cook the rest of the meal in
it also.
Do not preheat when broiling, roasting, or
cooking items such as casseroles.
Keep reflector bowls clean for best heat
reflection.
Using
the MEALTIMER”
clock
The MEALTIMER clock is designed to turn
the oven on and off at times you set, even
when you are not around.
Delayed time bakingroasting
is ideal for
foods which do not require a preheated oven,
such as meats and casseroles. Do not use
delayed time cooking for cakes, cookies,
etc. -they will not rise properly.
Before using the MEALTIMER clock,
make sure the clock is set to the correct
time of day. (See “Setting the clock” on
paw 11.1
To delay start
automatically:

you want.
5. After baking/roasting
is done or to
cancel the setting at any time, turn
both the Oven Selector and the Oven
Temperature Control Knob to OFF.
To avoid sickness and food waste
when using the MEALTIMER’”
control:
l Do not let most UNFROZEN
food
stand for more than two hours before
cooking starts.
l Do not allow food to remain in oven
for more than two hours after the end
of cooking cycle.
Failure to follow the above could result
in sickness.
NOTE: Do not use foods that will spoil while
waiting for cooking to start. Such foods are:
dishes with milk or eggs, cream soups, and
cooked meats or fish. Also, foods containing
baking powder or yeast will not rise properly
when cooked using delay start.
18
The oven vent
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven
through a vent under the right rear surface
unit. You can cook on the unit or keep food
warm on it while the oven is on. The vent is
needed for air circulation. Do not block the
vent. Poor baking/roasting can result.
NOTE: Plastic utensils left over the vent
can melt.

Page
Setting the controls .......................... 22
Special tips ... .................................... 23
The Self-Cleaning cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning
the oven interior. Like the other functions of your range, you operate the Self-Cleaning cycle
with the easy-to-use controls. Please review the instructions in this section to keep your oven
spotless.
How the cycle
works
The Self-Cleaning cycle uses very high heat
to burn away soil and grease. During the
cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it
does for normal baking or broiling. This high
heat breaks up the soil or grease and burns
It away.
You can adjust the cycle time to the amount
of soil in your-oven. You can set the cycle
time anywhere between 2 and 4 hours. (See
“Setting the controls” on page 22.)

Before you start the Self-Cleaning cycle,
make sure you:
l Hand-clean the areas shown. They do
not get hot enough during the cleaning
cycle for soil to bum away. Use hot water
and detergent or a soapy steel-wool pad
for cleaning.
NOTE: DO NOT clean, move, or bend the
seal. Poor cleaning, baking, and roasting
may result.

Remove the broiler pan grid and any
pots and pans being stored in the oven.
NOTE: You can clean the broiler pan
(without grid) in the oven if you have first
removed most of the soil by hand-cleaning
or in a dishwasher. If most of the soil is not
removed, too much smoking will occur.The
chrome broiler pan grid will discolor if
cleaned in the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This
will help reduce smoke during the SelfCleaning cycle.
Remove the oven racks from the oven
if you want them to remain shiny. You
can clean the oven racks in the Self-Cleaning
cycle, but they will become harder to slide.
(See page 27.) If you clean racks in the SelfCleaning cycle, place them on the 2nd and
4th rack guides. (Guides are counted from
bottom to top.)
Heat and odors are normal during the
Self-Cleaning cycle. Keep the kitchen well
ventilated by opening a window or by
turning on a vent hood or other kitchen vent
during the cycle.
Setting
the controls
1. Move the Lock Lever to the right - the
Clean position.
When the oven temperature goes above
normal baking/roasting temperatures, the
door cannot be opened and the Lock
Lever must not be moved.
2. Set the Oven Selector and Oven
Temperature Control Knob to CLEAN.
3. Make sure the clock and Start and Stop
Times all have the correct time of day.

Do not block the vent during the SelfCleaning cycle. Air must move freely for
best cleaning results.
Do not leave any foil in the oven during
the Self-Cleaning cycle. Foil could burn or
melt and damage the oven surface.
Do not leave plastic utensils near the
vent. They may melt.
The oven light will not work during the
Self-Cleaning cycle.

not pushed in.
5. After the Self-Cleaning cycle is cornpleted and the oven has cooled
enough, the Lock Lever can be moved
back to the left. DO NOT FORCE IT. Wait
until it moves easily. Turn the Oven
Selector and Oven Temperature
Knob 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.
To stop the Self-Cleaning
cycle at any time:
1. Push in and turn the Stop Time Knob
clockwise until it points to the correct
time of day.
2. Turn the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature Control Knob to OFF. When the
oven has cooled enough, move the Lock

Special
tips
. Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the
Self-Cleaning cycle to help get rid of heat,
odors, and smoke.
l After the oven Is cool, wipe up any residue or ash with a damp cloth or sponge. lf
any spots remain, clean with a mikt abrasive cleanser or cleaning sponge.
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 Selfxleaning
cycle does not 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 Self-Cleaning cycle longer the next
time and hand-clean areas noted on page 21.

Your range is designed for easy care. You
can do most cleaning with items found
around your home. Cleaning your range
whenever spills or soiling occurs will help to
keep it looking and operating like new.
Electrical Shock Hazard
I
Surface
units
and reflector
Removing
1. Make sure all surface units are off and
cool before removing surface units and
reflector bowls.
2. Lift the edge of the unit, opposite the
receptacle, just enough to clear the
element holddown clip and the reflector
bowl.
3. Pull the surface unit straight away from
the receptacle.
4. Lift out the reflector bowl. See “Cleaning
chart” on page 27 for cleaning instructions.
24
Make sure all controls are off and the
range is cool before cleaning or
servicing.
Failure to do so could resuft in electrical
shock or burns.
bowls
Replacing
1. Make sure all surface units are off and
cool before replacing surface units and
reflector bowls.
2. Line up openings in the reflector bowl
with the surface unit receptacle and the
element hoMdown clip.
3. Hold the surface unit as level as possible
with the terminal just started into the
receptacle. Push the surface unit terminal
into the receptacle.
4. When terminal is pushed into the
receptacle as far as It will go, push
down the edge of the surface unit
opposite the receptacle. The element
hold-down clip will keep the surface unit
from moving around.
NOTE: Reflector bowls reflect heat back to
the utensils on the surface units. They also
help catch spills. When they are kept clean,
they reflect heat better and look new longer.
If a reflector bowl gets discolored, some of
your utensils may not be flat enough, or
some may be too large for the surface unit.
In either case, some of the heat that’s meant
to go into or around a utensil goes down and
heats the reflector bowl. This extra heat can
discolor it.
25
Lift-up
cooktop
1. Lift front of cooktop at both front corners
until the support rods lock into place.
2. Wipe with warm, soapy water. Use a
soapy steel-wool pad on heavily soiled
areas.
3. To lower the cooktop, lift cooktop from
both sides while pressing the support
rods back to unlock them. Lower the
cooktop into place.
Personal Injury Hazard
Be sure both support rods are fully
extended and in the locked position.
Failure to do so could result in
personal injury from the cooktop accidentally falling.
NOTE: Do not drop the cooktop. Damage
could result to the porcelain and the cooktop
frame.

Failure to follow the above could result
in electrical shock, burns, or injury from
broken glass.
l
To replace the oven light:
1. Unplug appliance or disconnect at the
main power supply.
2. Remove the glass bulb cover in the back
of the oven by screwing it out counterclockwise.
3. Remove the light bulb from its socket.
Replace the bulb with a 40-watt appliance bulb.
4. Replace the bulb cover by screwing it in
clockwise. Plug In appliance or reconnect at the main power supply.
NOTE: The oven light will not work during
