To avoid risk of property damage, personal injury or death;
follow information in this guide exactly to prevent a fire or
explosion. DO NOT store or use gasoline or other flammable
vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any appliance.
To Prevent Fire or Smoke Damage
To ensure proper and safe operation: Appliance must be properly
installed and grounded by a qualified technician. DO NOT attempt to
adjust, repair, service, or replace any part of your appliance unless it
is specifically recommended in this manual. All other servicing should
be referred to a qualified servicer. Have the installer show you the

• Be sure all packing materials are removed from the appliance before
operating it.
• Keep area around appliance clear and free from combustible materials,
gasoline, and other flammable vapors and materials.
• If appliance is installed near a window, proper precautions should be
taken to prevent curtains from blowing over burners.
• NEVER leave any items on the cooktop. The hot air from the vent may
ignite flammable items and may increase pressure in closed containers
which may cause them to burst.
• Many aerosol-type spray cans are EXPLOSIVE when exposed to heat and
may be highly flammable. Avoid their use or storage near an appliance.
• Many plastics are vulnerable to heat. Keep plastics away from parts of
the appliance that may become warm or hot. DO NOT leave plastic
items on the cooktop as they may melt or soften if left too close to the

In Case of Fire
Cooking Safety (cont.)
Turn off appliance and ventilating hood to avoid spreading the flame.
Extinguish flame, then turn on hood to remove smoke and odor.
• Smother fire or flame in a pan with a lid or cookie sheet.
• NEVER pick up or move a flaming pan.
• DO NOT use water on grease fires. Use baking soda, a dry chemical or
foam-type extinguisher to extinguish fire or flame. Let fat cool before
attempting to handle it.
• Use dry, sturdy pot-holders. Damp pot-holders may cause burns from
steam. Dishtowels or other substitutes should NEVER be used as
potholders because they can trail across hot surface burners and ignite
or get caught on appliance parts.
• ALWAYS let quantities of hot fat used for deep fat frying cool before
attempting to move or handle.
• DO NOT let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate in
or near the appliance, hood or vent fan. Clean hood frequently to
prevent grease from accumulating on hood or filter. When flaming
foods under the hood, turn the fan off.
• NEVER wear garments made of flammable material or loose fitting or
long-sleeved apparel while cooking. Clothing may ignite or catch utensil
handles. DO NOT drape towels or materials on oven door handles.
These items could ignite and cause burns.
• PREPARED FOOD WARNING: Follow food manufacturer's instructions.
If a plastic frozen food container and/or its cover distorts, warps, or is
otherwise damaged during cooking, immediately discard the food and
its container. The food could be contaminated.
• If you are “flaming” liquor or other spirits under an exhaust, TURN THE
FAN OFF. The draft could cause the flames to spread out of control.
• Once the unit has been installed as outlined in the Installation
Instructions, it is important that the fresh air supply is not obstructed.
The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat
and moisture in the room in which it is installed. Ensure that the kitchen
is well-ventilated. Keep natural venting holes open or install a
mechanical ventilation device. Prolonged or intensive use of the
appliance may call for additional (such as opening a window) or more
effective ventilation (such as increasing the level of a mechanical
ventilation if present).
Child Safety
• NEVER leave children alone or unsupervised near the appliance when it
is in use or is still hot.
• NEVER allow children to sit or stand on any part of the appliance as
they could be injured or burned.
• DO NOT store items of interest to children over the unit. Children
climbing to reach items could be seriously injured.
• Children must be taught that the appliance and utensils in it can be hot.
Let hot utensils cool in a safe place, out of reach of small children.
Children should be taught that an appliance is not a toy. Children
should not be allowed to play with controls of other parts of the
appliance.
Cooking Safety
• To eliminate the hazard of reaching over hot surface burners, cabinet
storage should not be provided directly above a unit. If storage is
provided, it should be limited to items which are used infrequently and
which are safely stored in an area subjected to heat from an appliance.
Temperatures may be unsafe for some items, such as volatile liquids,
cleaners or aerosol sprays.
• ALWAYS place a pan on a surface burner before turning it on. Be sure
you know which knob controls which surface burner. Make sure the
correct burner is turned on and that the burner has ignited. When
cooking is completed, turn burner off before removing pan to prevent
exposure to burner flame.
• ALWAYS adjust surface burner flame so that it does not extend beyond
the bottom edge of the pan. An excessive flame is hazardous, wastes
energy and may damage the appliance, pan or cabinets above the
appliance. This is based on safety considerations.
• NEVER leave a surface cooking operation unattended especially when
using a high heat setting or when deep fat frying. Boilovers cause
smoking and greasy spillovers may ignite. Clean up greasy spills as soon
as possible. DO NOT use high heat for extended cooking operations.
• DO NOT heat unopened food containers, build up of pressure may
cause the container to explode and result in injury.
6
Cookware Safety
• Use pans with flat bottoms and handles that are easily grasped and stay
cool. Avoid using unstable, warped, easily tipped or loose-handled
pans. Also avoid using pans, especially small pans, with heavy handles
as they could be unstable and easily tip. Pans that are heavy to move
when filled with food may also be hazardous.
• Be sure cookware is large enough to properly contain food and avoid
boilovers. Pan size is particularly important in deep fat frying. Be sure
pan will accommodate the volume of food that is to be added as well
as the bubble action of fat.

Cookware Safety (cont.)
Important notice regarding pet birds:
• To minimize burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage due to
unintentional contact with the utensil, DO NOT extend handles over
adjacent surface burners. ALWAYS turn pan handles toward the side or
back of the appliance, not out into the room where they are easily hit or
reached by small children.
• NEVER let a pan boil dry as this could damage the utensil and the
appliance.
• Follow the manufacturer's directions when using oven cooking bags.
• Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic or glazed cookware
are suitable for cooktop surface without breaking due to the sudden
change in temperature. Follow manufacturer's instructions when
using glass.
• This appliance has been tested for safe performance using conventional
cookware. DO NOT use any devices or accessories that are not
specifically recommended in this guide. DO NOT use eyelid covers for
the surface units, stovetop grills, or add-on oven convection systems.
The use of devices or accessories that are not expressly recommended
in this manual can create serious safety hazards, result in performance
problems, and reduce the life of the components of the appliance.
• The flame of the burner should be adjusted to just cover the bottom of
the pan or pot. Excessive burner setting may cause scorching of
adjacent counter-top surfaces, as well as the outside of the cookware.
This is based on safety considerations.
NEVER keep pet birds in the kitchen or in rooms where the fumes from the
kitchen could reach. Birds have a very sensitive respiratory system. Fumes
released due to overheated cooking oil, fat, margarine and overheated
non-stick cookware may be equally harmful.
Glass Ceramic Cooking Surfaces
• NEVER touch the glass surface areas directly on or adjacent to the
burners when the cooktop is in use.
• During and after use, DO NOT touch or let clothing or other flammable
material contact surface of cooktop or areas near burners, until they
have had sufficient time to cool.
• DO NOT COOK ON BROKEN COOKING SURFACE. If cooking surface
should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the
broken cooking surface and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a
qualified technician immediately.
Cleaning Safety
• Turn off all controls and wait for appliance parts to cool before touching
or cleaning them. DO NOT touch the burners or surrounding areas until
they have had sufficient time to cool.
• Clean appliance with caution. Use care to avoid steam burns if a wet
sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot surface. Some cleaners
can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.

Surface Burners-Automatic Reignition
To light the surface burners, push and turn the
appropriate control knob counterclockwise to
any position. This control is both a gas valve
and an electric switch. Burners will ignite at any “ON”
position with the automatic re-ignition system. If
the flame goes out for any reason, the burners will
automatically reignite if the gas is still flowing. When
gas is permitted to flow to the burners, the electric
igniters start sparking. On all surface igniters you
should hear a “clicking” sound. If you do not, turn
off the control and check that the unit is plugged in
and that the fuse or circuit breaker is not blown or tripped.
Rear and Front Burners
Push in and turn the control knob counter-clockwise to the desired setting.
The control knobs can be turned to any desired setting as the knobs do
not have fixed positions between “Hi” and “Simmer”.
Note: The igniters may click a number of times before the burner ignites.
This is normal. All igniters will spark regardless of which burner is being
operated.
14
15
Operation
Within a few moments, enough gas will have traveled to the burner to
light. When the burner lights, turn the burner control to any position to
adjust the flame size. Setting the proper flame height for the desired
cooking process and selecting the correct cooking vessel will result in
superior cooking performance, while also saving time and energy.
Surface Operation
Cooking Substitutes Charts
Surface Cooking Tips
In many cases, a recipe requires an ingredient which is not readily available
or calls for a unit of measure that is not easily recognized. The following
charts have been provided as useful guides in these situations.
• The simmer line on the control panel is the beginning of the variable
simmer setting and produces a high simmer setting. Turn the knob
slowly towards “OFF” and the flame will adjust to a lower simmer
setting.
• Use low or medium flame heights when cooking in cookware that are
poor conductors of heat, such as glass, ceramic, and cast iron. Reduce
the flame height until it covers approximately 1/3 of the cookware
diameter. This will ensure more even heating within the cookware and
reduce the likelihood of burning or scorching the food.
• Reduce the flame if it is extended beyond the bottom of the cookware.
A flame that extends along the sides of the cookware is potentially
dangerous, heats the cookware handle and kitchen instead of the food,
and wastes energy.
• Reduce the flame height to the minimum level necessary to perform the
desired cooking process. Remember that food cooks just as quickly at a
gentle boil as it does at a rolling boil. Maintaining a higher boil than is
necessary causes a loss in food flavor and nutrients.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning and Maintenance
Any piece of equipment works better and lasts longer when maintained
properly and kept clean. Cooking equipment is no exception. Your
cooktop must be kept clean and maintained properly. Before cleaning,
make sure all controls are in the “OFF” position.
Burner Head
Surface Burners
VGSU Burner grate

DGCU Burner grate
If ports on burner head are clogged, clean with a straight pin. DO NOT
enlarge or distort the ports. DO NOT use a toothpick to clean the ports.
When replacing burner head, carefully align the 2 tabs underneath the
burner head with the outside edge of burner base. Make sure the tabs are
not aligned with the igniter and the burner cap is level.
Note: For stubborn stains, use a non abrasive cleanser such as Bon Ami™
and a soft brush or soft Scotch Brite™ pad.
Cleaning Tip: For difficult to clean burner caps and heads, place parts in a
zip seal bag with ammonia.

The base should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water at the end of
each cooling period. DO NOT use steel wool, abrasive cloths, cleanser, or
powders. To remove encrusted materials, soak the area with a hot towel to
loosen the material, then use a wooden nylon spatula. DO NOT use a
metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape the aluminum base.
• Wipe up any spills which remain on the sealed top surface.
• Replace burner cap, burner head, and grates after drying thoroughly.
Cooktop Surfaces
*Note: When replacing burner head, carefully align the tab underneath the
cap with the slot in the burner base.
Wipe up spill-overs as soon as possible after they occur and before they
get a chance to burn in and cook solid. In the event of a spill-over, follow
these steps:
• Allow the burner and grate to cool to a safe temperature level.
• Lift off the burner grate. Wash in warm soapy water.
• Remove the burner cap and burner head and clean.
The surface burner caps should be routinely removed and cleaned.
ALWAYS clean the burner caps after a spill-over. Keeping the burner caps
clean will prevent improper ignition and uneven flames. To clean, pull
burner cap straight up from the burner base. Wipe off surface burner caps
with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth after each use. Use a non-abrasive
cleanser such as Bon Ami™ and a soft brush or soft Scotch Brite™ pad for
cooked-on foods. Dry thoroughly after cleaning. For best cleaning and to
avoid possible rusting, DO NOT clean in dishwasher or self-cleaning oven.

Control Panel
DO NOT use any cleaners containing ammonia, abrasives, or stainless
steel cleaners on any surface that contains graphics. They could remove
the graphics from the control panel. Use hot, soapy water and a soft clean
cloth. DO NOT spray liquids directly onto control panel.
Control Knobs
MAKE SURE ALL THE CONTROL KNOBS POINT TO THE “OFF”
POSITION BEFORE REMOVING. Pull the knobs straight off. Wash in
detergent and warm water. Dry completely and replace by pushing firmly
onto stem. DO NOT use any cleaners containing ammonia or abrasives.

Several different finishes have been used in your cooktop. Cleaning
instructions for each surface are given below. NEVER USE AMMONIA,
STEEL WOOL PADS OR ANY ABRASIVE CLOTHS AND MATERIALS SUCH
AS CLEANSERS, OVEN CLEANERS, OR ABRASIVE POWDERS. THEY CAN
PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR COOKTOP.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning and Maintenance
Stainless Steel Parts
Glass Ceramic Top
All stainless steel body parts should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water
at the end of each cooling period and with a liquid cleaner designed for that
material when soapy water will not do the job. DO NOT use steel wool,
abrasive cloths, cleansers, or powders. If necessary, scrape stainless steel to
remove encrusted materials, soak the area with hot towels to loosen the
material, then use a wooden or nylon spatula or scraper. DO NOT use a metal
knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape stainless steel. DO NOT
permit citrus or tomato juice to remain on stainless steel surface, as citric acid
will permanently discolor stainless steel. Wipe up any spills immediately.
Cleaning of glass ceramic tops is different from cleaning a standard
porcelain finish. To maintain and protect the surface of your new glass
ceramic top, follow these basic steps:
Brass Parts
All special ordered brass parts are coated with epoxy.
CAUTION
All special ordered brass parts are coated with an epoxy coating.
DO NOT USE BRASS CLEANERS OR ABRASIVE CLEANERS ON
ANY BRASS PARTS. All brass body parts should be wiped regularly
with hot soapy water. When hot soapy water will not do the job, use
every day household cleaners that are not abrasive.
For normal, light soil:
1. Rub a few drops of a glass ceramic cleaning cream to the cool soiled
area using a damp paper towel.
2. Wipe until all soil and cream are removed. Frequent cleaning
leaves a protective coating which is essential in preventing scratches
and abrasions.
For heavy, burned soil:
1. Rub a few drops of glass ceramic cleaning cream to the cool soiled
area using a damp paper towel.
2. Carefully scrape remaining soil with a single-edged razor blade. Hold
the blade at a 30˚ angle against the ceramic surface.
3. If any soil remains, repeat the steps above. For additional protection,
after all soil has been removed, polish the entire surface with the
cleaning cream.
4. Buff with a dry paper towel. As the cleaning cream cleans, it leaves a
protective coating on the glass surface. This coating helps to prevent
build-up of mineral deposits (water spots) and will make future cleaning
easier.
Note: Dishwashing detergents remove this protective coating and
