Range Safety
Your safety and the safety of others is 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 hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will be preceded by the safety alert symbol and the
word “DANGER” or “WARNING.” These words mean:
wDANGER
You will be killed or seriously injured
if you don’t follow instructions.
wWARNING
You can be killed or seriously injured
if you don’t follow instructions.
All safety messages will identify the hazard, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury,
and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
wWARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
injury to persons, or damage when using
the range, follow basic precautions,
including the following:
General
•Read all instructions before using
the range.
•Install or locate the range only in
accordance with the provided
Installation Instructions. The
range must be installed by a
qualified installer. The range
must be properly connected to
electrical supply and grounded.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of
tipping of the appliance, the appliance must be secured by properly
4
installed anti-tip devices. To
check if the devices are installed
properly, open the oven door,
remove a screw at the bottom of
each side trim, remove the side
trims, and verify that the anti-tip
devices are engaged to cabinets
with two screws through the
mounting holes in the mounting
rail of the oven.
RAN G E SAFETY
•CAUTION: Do not store things
children might want above the
range. Children could be burned
or injured while climbing on it.
•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.
•Do not operate the range if it
is damaged or not working
properly.
•Do not use the range for warming or heating the room. Persons
could be burned or injured, or a
fire could start.
•Use the range only for its intended use as described in this
manual.
•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, such as
the oven vent opening, the surface near the vent opening, the
cooktop, and the oven door and
window, could also become hot
enough to cause burns.
•Do not wear loose or hanging
garments when using the range.
They could ignite if they touch
a hot surface unit and you could
be burned.
•Use only dry pot holders. Moist or
damp pot holders on hot surfaces
could result in burns from steam.
Do not let pot holder touch hot
heating elements. Do not use a
towel or bulky cloth for a pot
holder. It could catch on fire.
•Keep range vents unobstructed.

RANGE SAFETY
•Do not heat unopened containers.
They could explode. The hot
contents could cause burns and
container particles could cause
injury.
•Use only cookware approved for
oven use. Follow cookware
manufacturer’s instructions, especially when using glass or plastic
cookware.
•Do not store flammable materials
on or near the range. The fumes
could create an explosion and/or
fire hazard.
•Check to be sure glass cookware
is safe for use on the range. Only
certain types of glass, glassceramic, ceramic, earthenware,
or other glazed cookware 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 could ignite.
When using the cooktop
•Make sure the reflector bowls are
in place during cooking. Cooking
without reflector bowls could 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 could result in a risk of
electric shock or 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 could result in the igniting of
clothing or pot holders. Correct
pan size also improves cooking
efficiency.
6
•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.
When using the oven
•Always position oven rack(s) in
desired location while oven is
cool. If a rack must be removed
while oven is hot, do not let pot
holder contact hot heating
element in oven.
•Use care when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing food.
RAN G E SAFETY
Grease
Care and cleaning
•Grease is flammable. Do not
allow grease to collect around
cooktop. Wipe spillovers
immediately.
•Do not soak removable heating
elements in water. The element
will be damaged and shock or
fire could result.
•Do not clean door gasket. It is
essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub,
damage, or move the gasket.
Clean only parts recommended
in this Use and Care Guide.
•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.
•Disconnect the electrical supply
before servicing the range.
•Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flaming pan on range
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.

Cookware tips
Home canning information
• Use the correct cookware to prevent
damage to the coil elements, cooktop,
wiring, and surrounding areas.
• If the cookware is too small for the coil
element or the bottom is not flat, the coil
element could stay glowing red for an
extended length of time causing damage
to the range.
• If you start cooking on high, it is important to turn the control down to a lower
setting to complete cooking.
• Flat-bottomed cookware, including woks,
canners, and teakettles, will provide better
contact with the coil element and provide
the best cooking results.
• Warped, dented, and ribbed-bottomed
cookware can result in uneven cooking
due to incomplete contact with the coil
element.
• Cookware that has been designed with
slightly indented bottoms or small expansion channels can be used.
• Choose medium to heavy gauge
(thickness) cookware.
• The pan material (type of metal or
glass) affects how quickly and evenly
the pan heats.
• Use flat-bottomed canners/pans for
best results.
NOTE: Do not leave empty cookware, or
cookware which has boiled dry, on a hot coil
element. The cookware could overheat
causing damage to the cookware or coil
element.
center over

maximum
overhang
1"
• Use the largest coil element for best
results. Also, use a canner/pan that you
can center over the coil element and that
does not extend more than 1 inch outside
the coil element area. Large diameter
canners/pans, if not centered correctly,
trap heat and can cause damage to the
cooktop.
• Do not place your canner on 2 coil
elements at the same time. Too much heat
will build up and damage the cooktop.
• Start with hot water. This reduces the
time the control is set on high. Reduce the
heat setting to the lowest position needed
to keep water boiling.
• Keep reflector bowls clean for best heat
reflection.
• When canning for long periods of time,
alternate use of the coil elements between
batches to allow the coil elements to cool
down, or prepare food in small batches.
• Refer to your canner manual for specific
instructions.
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 coil elements 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
WHIRLPOOL Service Company.

Positioning racks and pans
General guidelines
• Before turning on the oven, place oven
racks where you need them.
• To move rack(s), lift rack(s) at front and
pull out.
• Be sure the rack(s) is level.
• Use pot holders or oven mitts to protect
your hands, if rack(s) must be moved while
the oven is hot.
• For baking/roasting with 1 rack, place
the rack so the top of the food will be
centered in the oven.
• When baking/roasting on 2 racks,
position racks in oven to allow good
circulation of air around all the food.
Bakeware tips
Rack placement for specific
foods:
FOOD
Frozen pies, large
roasts, turkeys, angel
food cakes
Bundt cakes, most
quick breads, yeast
breads, casseroles,
meats
Cookies, biscuits,
muffins, cakes,
nonfrozen pies

Lowest level or
2nd level from
bottom
2nd level from
bottom
2nd or 3rd level
from bottom
NOTE: For recommended rack placement
when broiling, see the “Broiling rack position
chart.”
• When baking with insulated cookie
sheets or baking pans, place them in the
bottom third of the oven. You may need to
increase the recommended baking times,
so test for doneness before removing from
the oven.
• When using ovenproof glassware or
dark bakeware, reduce the oven temperature by 25°F, but use the same baking
time. Because these pans absorb heat,
producing darker bottom browning and
crispier crusts, place the rack in the center
of the oven. When baking pies and bread,
you can use the temperature suggested in
the recipe.
11
U SI N G Y O U R RANGE
For best air circulation
Hot air must circulate around the pans in the
oven for even heat to reach all parts of the
oven. This results in better baking.
• Place the pans so that one is not directly
over the other.
• For best results, allow 11⁄ 2 to 2 inches
of space around each pan and between
pans and oven walls.
• Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at
a time.
Use the following as a guide to determine
where to place the pans:
1 pan
Place in the center of the oven rack.
2 pans
Place in opposite corners of the oven rack.
3 or 4 pans
Place in opposite corners on each oven
rack. Stagger pans so no pan is directly
over another.
Using aluminum foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers
from pies or casseroles:
• Place the foil on the oven rack below the
rack with the food. Turn up foil edges and
make sure foil is about 1 inch larger all
around than the dish holding the food.
• Do not cover the entire rack with aluminum foil. It will reduce air circulation and
cause poor cooking results.
• Do not line oven bottom with foil or other
liners. It could affect the quality of your
baking.

• For even cooking, place the meat on a
rack in a shallow pan. This keeps the meat
out of the drippings and allows the heat to
circulate better.
• Use a meat thermometer for the most
accurate doneness. Insert it so the tip is in
the center of the largest muscle or thickest
portion of the meat or poultry. Make sure
the thermometer is not touching bone, fat,
or the bottom of the pan.
Adjusting the oven temperature control
Although your new oven is properly adjusted
to provide accurate temperatures, it may
cook faster or slower than your old oven. If,
after using the oven for a period of time, you
are not satisfied with the baking/roasting
results, you can change the offset temperature by following the steps below:

Broiling tips
• Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling.
They are designed to drain extra liquid and
grease away from the cooking surface.
This drainage helps prevent spatter,
smoke, or fire.
• Do not cover the broiler grid with foil.
• To make sure grease drains well, do
not use cookie sheets or similar pans for
broiling.
• Place food about 3 inches or more from
the broil element.
• After broiling, remove the broiler pan
from the oven when you remove the
food. Drippings will bake on the pan if
you leave it in the heated oven.
Energy saving tips
Although the energy used for cooking is
usually a very small percentage of the total
energy used in the home, cooking energy
can be used efficiently. Here are some tips
to help you save energy when using your
cooking product:
Cooktop
• Match the pan to the coil element size.
• The pan should have a flat bottom,
straight sides, and a well-fitting lid.
• To help shorten your cooking time, use
the least amount of liquid possible.
• Preheat your pots and pans only when
recommended and for the shortest time
possible.
• Start your food on a higher heat setting,
then turn the control to a lower setting to
finish cooking.
• Place a filled pan on the coil element
before turning it on.
Oven
• “Oven peeking” can make cooking
times longer and affect the food quality.
• Rely on a timer to keep track of
cooking time.
• Plan your meals for the most efficient use
of the oven by cooking more than one
food at a time, or baking while the oven
is still hot after cooking a meal.
• It is not necessary to preheat the oven
when broiling or roasting, unless your
recipe recommends doing so.

U SI N G Y O U R RANGE
Using the electronic MEALTIMERTM control
The electronic MEALTIMER control will turn
the oven on and off at times you set, even
when you are not around.
Delayed time baking/roasting is ideal for
foods which do not require a preheated
oven, such as meats and casseroles. Do
not use delayed time cooking for cakes,
cookies, etc. – they will not rise properly.
This section discusses two methods for
starting baking/roasting now and stopping
automatically later, and three methods for
starting and stopping baking/roasting
automatically. Read this section carefully
to choose which method(s) is best for you.
Before using the electronic
MEALTIMER control, make sure the
clock is set to the correct time of day.
(See the “Setting the clock” section.)

cool before removing the coil elements
and reflector bowls.
2. Lift the edge of the coil element, opposite

Replacing
1. Make sure all coil elements are off and
cool before replacing the coil elements
and reflector bowls.
2. Line up openings in the reflector bowl
with the coil element receptacle and the
element hold-down clip.
3. Hold the coil element as level as possible
with the terminal just started into the
receptacle. Push the coil element terminal into the receptacle.
4. When terminal is pushed into the receptacle as far as it will go, push down the
edge of the coil element opposite the
receptacle. The element hold-down clip
will keep the coil element from moving
around.
NOTE: Reflector bowls reflect heat back
to the cookware on the coil elements. 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
your cookware may not be flat enough, or
some may be too large for the coil element.
In either case, some of the heat that’s meant
to go into or around the cookware goes
down and heats the reflector bowl. This
extra heat can discolor it.
