RANGE SAFETY

Your safety and the safety of others are very important.

We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety messages.

This is the safety alert symbol.

This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.

All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.”

These words mean:

DANGER

You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately follow instructions.

WARNING

You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow instructions.

All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed.

The Anti-Tip Bracket

The range will not tip during normal use. However, the range can tip if you apply too much force or weight to the open door without the antitip bracket fastened down properly.

WARNING

Tip Over Hazard

A child or adult can tip the range and be killed.

Reconnect the anti-tip bracket, if the range is moved.

See the installation instructions for details.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or serious burns to children and adults.

Anti-Tip Bracket

Range Foot

Making sure the anti-tip bracket is installed:

• Slide range forward.

• Look for the anti-tip bracket securely attached to floor.

• Slide range back so rear range foot is under anti-tip bracket.

The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn of potential exposure to such substances.

WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.

This appliance can cause low-level exposure to some of the substances listed, including benzene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, and toluene.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING:

To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to persons, or damage when using the range, follow basic precautions, including the following:

Protective Liners – Do not use aluminum foil to line surface unit drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as suggested in the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in a risk of electric shock, or fire.

WARNING:

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF

THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED BY

PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP DEVICES. TO CHECK

IF THE DEVICES ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE

RANGE FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET

SECURELY ATTACHED TO FLOOR, AND SLIDE RANGE

BACK SO REAR RANGE FOOT IS UNDER ANTI-TIP

BRACKET.

CAUTION:

Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets above a range or on the backguard of a range – children climbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.

Glazed Cooking Utensils – Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for range-top service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature.

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 a utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface units.

Proper Installation – Be sure the range is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician.

Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements – Heating elements should never be immersed in water.

Never Use the Range for Warming or Heating the Room.

Do Not Leave Children Alone – Children should not be left 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.

Wear Proper Apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while using the range.

Do Not Cook on Broken Cooktop – If cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.

Clean Cooktop With Caution – If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.

User Servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of the range unless specifically recommended in the manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.

Use Care When Opening Door – Let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food.

Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers – Build-up of pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.

Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven or near surface units.

Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.

Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires – Smother fire or flame or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.

Use Only Dry Potholders – Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth.

DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR

UNITS – Surface units may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near surface units may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface units or areas near units until they have had sufficient time to cool. Among those areas are the cooktop and surfaces facing the cooktop.

Use Proper Pan Size – The range is equipped with one or more surface units of different size. 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 burner will also improve efficiency.

Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat

Settings – Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.

Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place –

Absence of these pans or bowls during cooking may subject wiring or components underneath to damage.

Placement of Oven Racks – Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating element in oven.

DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR

SURFACES OF OVEN – Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. 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 heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the appliance may become hot enough to cause burns – among these surfaces are oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors.

For self-cleaning ranges –

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.

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.

Clean Only Parts Listed in Manual.

Before Self-Cleaning the Oven – Remove broiler pan and other utensils.

For units with ventilating hood –

Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently – Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.

A

Oven Vent

The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven, and should not be blocked or covered. Blocking or covering the vent will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking and cleaning results. Do not set plastics, paper or other items that could melt or burn near the oven vent.

A. Oven vent (ceramic glass model)

Baking and Roasting

PRECISE BAKE Temperature Management System

The PRECISE BAKE system electronically regulates the oven heat levels during preheat and bake to maintain a precise temperature range for optimal cooking results. The bake and broil elements cycle on and off in intervals. The bake element will glow red when cycling on; the broil element will not. This feature is automatically activated when the oven is in use.

Before baking and roasting, position racks according to

“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. When roasting, it is not necessary to wait for the oven preheat cycle to end before putting food in unless it is recommended in the recipe.

Preheating

When START is pressed, the oven will begin preheating. Once

170ºF (75ºC) is reached, the display temperature will increase as the actual temperature of the oven increases. When the preheat temperature is reached, a tone will sound, and the selected temperature will appear on the display.

Broiling uses direct radiant heat to cook food. Changing the temperature when Custom Broiling allows more precise control when cooking. The lower the temperature, the slower the cooking.

Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish and poultry may cook better at lower broiling temperatures.

Broiling

It is not necessary to preheat the oven before putting food in unless recommended in the recipe. Position food on grid in a broiler pan, then place it in the center of the oven rack. Close the door to the broil stop position to ensure proper broiling temperature.

For best results, use a broiler pan and grid. It is designed to drain juices and help avoid spatter and smoke.

If you would like to purchase a broiler pan, one may be ordered.
