Improper installation of these
liners ma I,esult in a risk of
electric s IYcck or fire.
*Select a pan with a flat bottom
that is abol t the same size as
4
the surface unit. If pan is smaller
than the surface unit, some of
the heatin element will be exposed an 8 may result in the
I niting of clothing or potholders.
8 orrect pan size also improves
cooking efficiency.
@Check to be sure lass cooking utensils are sa9e for use on
the ran e. Only certain types of
glass, g9 ass-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 may ignite.
l Turn pan handles inward, but
not over other surface units.
This will help reduce the
chance of burns, i niting of
flammable materia 9 s, and spills
due to bumping of the pan.
When using the oven

tips
Select a pan that is a lout the same size as the
surface unit.
l
NOTE: For best resu Its and greater energy
efficiency, use only fl St-bottomed utensils that
make good contact wi :h the surface units.
Utensils with rounded warped, ridged (porcelain enamel-ware) or (lented bottoms could
cause severe overhe? ting, which damages the
utensil and/or surface unit.
Woks, canners and teakettles with flat
bottoms suitable for u ;e on your cooktop are
now available in most houseware stores and
departments.
l
The pan should have straight sides and a tightfitting lid.
9 Choose medium to k eavy gauge (thickness)
pans that are fairly ligl It-weight.
l
The pan material (rnc tal or glass) affects how
fast heat transfers fror I the surface unit through
the pan material and t ow evenly heat spreads
over the pan bottom. (:hoose pans that provide
the best cooking resul :s.
l
Handles should be rn, Ide of sturdy, heatresistant material and be securely attached to
the pan.

Damage
Hazard
If a surface unit stays red for a long time,
the bottom of the pan is not flat enough or is
too small for the surface unit. Prolonged
usage of incorrect utensils for long periods
of time can result in damage to the surface
unit, cooktop, wiring and surrounding areas.
To prevent damage, use correct utensils,
stat-l 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 can overheat and may damage the
utensil or surface unit.

cannhrg
information
Use flat-bottome zl canners/pans
for best
results.
Use the largest surface unit for best results.
Also, use a canner/pan which can be centered
over the surface L nit and which does not
extend more than one inch outside surface unit
area. Large diamt ter canners/pans, if not
properly centered trap heat and can cause
damage to the COI)ktop.
Do not place canner on two surface units at
the same time. Tc o much heat will build up and
will damage the CIloktop.
Start with hot water. This reduces the time the
control is set on h gh. Reduce heat setting to
lowest position needed to keep water boiling.
Keep reflector bc IWIS clean for best heat
reflection.
To prolong the life of the elements:
- Prepare small I batches at a time.
- Do not use elel nents for canning all day.
Positioning
racks
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.
If you plan to use the cooktop for canning, we
recommend the installation of a Canning Kit.
Order the kit (Part No. 242905) from your
Whirlpool dealer or authorized WhirlpoolSM
service company.
and pans
For baking/roasting
with one rack, place the
rack so the top of tf e food will be centered in the
oven.
Rack placement fc r specific foods:
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 potholders or oven mitts to
protect hands.
Failure to follow the above precautions may
result in personal injury.
l
RACK POSITION
Frozen pies, large roasts,
Lowest level or 2nd
level from bottom
Angel and bundt cakes,
most quick breads yeast
2nd level from
bottom
Cookies, biscuits,
2nd or 3rd level
from bottom
nuffins,
When baking on tu ro racks, arrange racks on
bottom and third lev al from bottom.
NOTE: For recommended rack placement when
broiling, see “Broilin J rack position chart” on
page 14.
For best
air circulation
Hot air must circulate i .round the pans in the
oven for even heat to I each all parts of the oven.
This results in better b lking.
l
Place the pans so that one is not directly over
the other.
l
For best results, all DW 1% to 2 inches
(4-5 cm) of space ar#)und each pan and
between pans and o Ien walls. There must be
a minimum space of 1 inch (2.5 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 he oven rack.
Two pans
Place in opposite corr ers of the oven rack.
Three or four pans
Place in opposite corr ers on each oven rack.
Stagger pans so no pi In is directly over another.
Using
aluminum
foil
for baking
Use aluminum foil to ( atch 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 i ich (3 cm) larger all around
than the dish holdinl j the food.
l
Do not cover the er rtire rack with aluminum foil.
It will reduce air circ Jlation and cause poor
cooking results.
l
Do not line oven bc ttom or entire oven rack
with foil or other liners. Poor baking will result.

l
Place meat the correct distance from the
element. Meat placed too close to the
element may spatter, smoke, burn or
catch fire during broiling.
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. Poor
drainage of grease may result in fire. 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.
tips
Although the energy I lsed for cooking is usually a
very small percentagl? of the total energy used in
the home, cooking er ergy can be used efficiently.
Here are some tips t( help you save energy
when using your cool :ing product.
l Use pans with flat t ottoms, straight sides and
tight-fitting lids.
. Match the pan to tt e surface unit size.
l Cook with a minim1 rm of liquid or fat to help
shorten cooking tine.
. Preheat pans only Nhen recommended and for
the shortest time pclssible.
9 Start food on highs r heat settings, then set
surface unit control on low or off to finish
cooking. Use retair ed heat for cooking when
possible.
l Use the more effici snt surface units instead of
the oven when poe sible.
14
Fire Hazard
l
. Turn on the surface unit only after placing filled
pan on the unit.
l “Oven
peeking” may cause heat loss, longer
cooking times and unsatisfactory baking
results. Rely on your timer to keep track of the
cooking time.
l Bake cakes, pies or cookies when oven is
warm. Best time is after a meal has been
cooked in it.
l Preheat
the oven no longer than necessary.
l 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.
l Do not preheat
when broiling, roasting or
cooking items such as casseroles.
l Keep reflector bowls clean for best heat
reflection.

The Self-Cleaning cy;le saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning the oven
interior. Like with the other functions of your range, you operate the Self-Cleaning cycle with the easyto-use controls. Plea: e review the instructions in this section to keep your oven spotless.
How
the
cycle
works
The Self-Cleaning cyc le uses very high heat to
burn away soil and gr ?ase. During the cycle, the
oven gets much hotte’ than it does for normal
baking or broiling. Thi 5 high heat breaks up the
soil or grease and but ns it away.
You can adjust the :ycle time to the amount of
soil in your oven. You can set the cycle time
anywhere between 2 md 4 hours. (See ‘Setting
the controls” on page 19.)
The graph at the right is representative of a
normal, 3-hour Self-C eaning cycle. Note that the
heating stops when th s 3-hour setting is up, but it
takes longer for the o\ en to cool enough to
unlock.

Remove the broiler pan grid and any pots
and pans being stored in the oven.
NOTE: You can clew .n the broiler pan (without
grid) in the oven if ye)u have first removed most
of the soil by hand-c leaning or a dishwasher. If
most of the soil is nc t removed, too much
smoking will occur. ‘-he chrome broiler pan grid
will discolor if cleant,d in the Self-Cleaning
cycle.
l
Wipe out any loose! soil or grease. This will
help reduce smoke luring the cleaning cycle.
. Remove the oven I acks from the oven if you
want them to rema in shiny. You can clean the
oven racks in the SC!If-Cleaning cycle, but they
will become harder o slide. (See page 23.) If
you clean racks in tl re Self-Cleaning cycle,
place them on the 2 id and 4th rack guides.
(Guides are counter I from bottom to top.)
