ROTISSERIE
If you would like a rotisserie for your oven, you can order a kit (Part No. 261881,
RCK79) from your dealer. The kit includes easy installation
instructrons.
ACCESSORY CANNING KIT (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. Order the kit from your Whirlpool Dealer or Tech-Care Service Company.
Use only flat-bottomed
utensils for best results and to prevent damage
to the
range. Specialty
items with rounded or ridged bottoms [woks, ridged bottom canners
or tea kettles) are not recommended.

Guide” for important

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 the utensils used may not be flat enough.
Or some may be :oo large for the surface

meant to go Into or around a utensil goes
down and heats the reflector bowl. This extra heat can discolor it.

2.
Remove any pots or pans you may have
stored in the oven. They can’t stand the

SPECIAL TIPS
1.
Keep the kitchen well
ventilated
during the
cleaning
cycle to help
get rid of normal heat
odors and smoke.
4.
Oven racks lose their shine, discolor
and become harder to slide on their
guides when they are left In the oven
during the cleaning
cycle. To make
them slide easier, polish the edges of
the racks and rack guides with a soapy
steel-wool pad, rinse well and wipe
on a thin coat of salad oil.
2.
Clean the oven before
it gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning
a very soiled
oven takes longer and
results in more smoke
than usual.
5.
3.
If the cleaning
cycle
doesn’t get the oven as
clean as you
expected,
the cycle
may not have been set
long enough. Set the
cleaning
time longer
for heavier soil.
To stop the cleaning
cycle after it has
started:
l Turn the Stop Time Knob clockwise
until the hand points to the right time
of day.
l Turn the Oven
Selector and Oven

If you need service or assistance,
we suggest you follow these four steps:
1
l
Before calling for assistance.. .
Performance
problems Often result from
little things you can find and fix yourself without tools of any kind.
If nothing operates:
Is the range correctly wired to a live circuit
with the proper voltage? (See Installation
Instructions.)
l Have you checked
the main fuse or circuitbreaker box?
l
If the oven will not operate:
l Is the Oven Selector
turned to a setting (BAKE
or BROIL, but not TIMED BAKE)?
l Is the Oven Temperature
Control turned to a
temperature
setting?
If surface units will not operate:
Have you checked
the main fuse or circuitbreaker box?
l Are surface
units plugged
in all the way7
l Do the control
knobs turn?
l
If surface unit control knob or knobs will not
turn:
l Did you push in before
trying to turn?
If the Self-Cleaning
Cycle will not operate:
Are the Oven Selector and the Oven Temperature Control set to “CLEAN?”
l Does the Start Time Dial show the correct
time
of day?
l Is the Stop Time Dial set ahead
to the time
you want the cleaning
cycle to stop?
l Is the Lock Lever all the way to the right? (The
Clean Light will come on.]
l
If cooking results aren’t what you expect:
Is the range level?
Are you using pans recommended
in the
Cooking Guide?
If baking, have you allowed 1% to 2 inches
(4-5 cm] on all sides of the pans for air
circulation?
Does the oven temperature
seem too low or
too high? [See page 5 to reset the Oven
Temperature
Control.)
Have you preheated
the oven as the recipe
calls for?
Are the pans the size called for in the recipe?
Are you following a tested recipe from a
reliable source?
Do the cooking utensils have smooth, flat
bottoms?
Do the cooking utensils fit the surface unit
being used?
See the Cooklng Guide for more information
on cooking problems and how to solve them
