IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical
shock,
injury to persons, or damage
when using the
range, follow basic precautions,
including
Read all instructions before using
the range.
l 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 electrical supply and
grounded.
l Do not use the range for warming or heating the room. Persons
could be burned or injured, or
a fire could start.
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 Do not wear loose or hanging
garments when using the range.
They could ignite if they touch a
hot surface unit or heating element and you could be burned.
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 Do not store flammable
materials in or near the range. They
could explode or burn.
l Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flaming pan on cooktop 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 Use only dry potholders.
Moist
or damp potholders on hot surl
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
faces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let potholder touch
hot heating elements. Do not use
a towel or bulky cloth for a potholder. They could catch on 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 may result in the
igniting of clothing or potholders.
Correct pan size also improves
cooking efficiency.
Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings. A
boil-over could result and cause
smoking and greasy spill-overs
that may ignite.
Make sure the reflector bowls
are in place during cooking.
Cooking without reflector bowls
may 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 may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire.
Check to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe for use on the
cooktop. 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.
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.
Do not soak removable heating
elements in water. The element
continued

will be damaged and shock or
fire could result.
Use care when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing
food.
Do not heat unopened containers. They could explode. The
hot contents could cause burns
and container particles could
cause injury
Keep range vents unobstructed.
Always position oven rack in
desired location while oven is
cool. It rack must be moved
while oven is hot, do not let
potholder contact hot heating
element in oven.
Do not clean door 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.
Do not store things children
might want above the range.
Children could be burned or
injured while climbing on it.
l
Do not touch surface units, areas
near units, heating elements or
interior surfaces of oven. Surface
units and heating elements may
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 may
become hot enough to cause
burns; such as, the oven vent
opening, the surface near the
ventopening,thecooktop,and
the oven door.
l FOR YOUR SAFETY.
DO NOT STORE OR USE GASOLINE
OR OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS
AND LIQUIDS IN THE VICINITY OF
THIS OR ANY OTHER APPLIANCE.
THE FUMES CAN CREATE A FIRE
HAZARD OR EXPLOSION.

Canning Kit
utensil
informatlon.
(Part NO. 242905)
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. Ordr the kit from your Whirlpool dealer or authorized WhirlpooP
service company.
See the Cooking
Guide
for additional
canning
information.
Using the Oven Controls
Baking
The rack should be placed so the
top of the food will be centered in
the oven. Always leave at least 1%to
2 inches (4-5 cm) between the sides
of the pan and the oven walls and
other pans. For more information,
see the Cooking Guide.
1. Position
the rack properly
before turning on the oven. To
change rack position, lift rack at
front and pull out.
2. Set the Oven Selector to BAKE.
3. Set the Oven Temperature Control
to the baking temperature you
want. The Oven Indicator Light will
come on. The oven is preheated
when the Oven Indicator Light first
goes off.
4. Put food in the oven. During
baking, the elements will turn on
and off to keep the oven temperature at the setting. The Oven
Indicator Light will turn on and off
with the elements.
5. When baking is done, turn both
the Oven Selector and Oven
Temperature Control to OFF.
The top element helps heat
during baking, but does not
turn red.
P
Adjusting the Oven Temperature
Control
Does your oven seem hotter or colder than your old oven? The temperature of
your old oven may have shifted gradually without your noticing the change.
Your new oven is properly adjusted to provide accurate temperatures. But
when compared to your old oven, the new design may give you different
results.
If after using the oven for a period of time, you are not satisfied with the
temperature settings, they can be adjusted by following these steps:

Fire Hazard
Always use a pan designed
for brolling. The grid holds the food above
the drippings
and helps prevent excessive
smoke and/or fire.

the oven on. See “Broil Chart” in
the Cooking Guide or a reliable
cookbook for recommended
rack positions.

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.
Burn Hazard
If you leave a utensil on the right
rear surface unit, use potholders
when moving it. Pan handles can
become
hot enough to burn.
Plastic utensils lett over the vent
can melt.
