For personal safety, the range must be properly grounded. For
maximum safety, the power cord must be plugged into an
electrical outlet that is correctly polarized and properly grounded.
DO NOT Operate the range using a 2-prong adapter or an
extension cord. If a 2-prong wall receptacle is the only available
outlet, it is the personal responsibility of the consumer to have it
replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle installed
by a qualified electrician.

Unit Flame Size
Never extend the flame beyond the
outer edge of the utensil. A higher
flame simply wastes heat and energy,
and increases your risk of being burned
by the flame.

For most cooking, start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower
one to complete the process. Use the chart below as a guide for determining
proper flame size for various types of cooking. The size and type of utensil used
and the amount of food being cooked will influence the setting needed for
cooking.
For deep fat frying, use a thermometer and adjust the surface control knob
accordingly. If the fat is too cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy.
If the fat is too hot, the food will brown so quickly that the center will be
undercooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the food
will neither brown nor cook properly.

Oven
During the self-cleaning
cycle, the outside of the range can
become very hot to the touch. DO NOT
leave small children unattended near
the appliance.
Self-Cleaning Oven
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking
temperatures) which eliminate soil completely or reduce it to a fine powdered
ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.

walls, racks, bottom or any other part
of the range with aluminum foil. Doing
so will destroy heat distribution,
produce poor baking results and cause
permanent damage to the oven interior
(aluminum foil will melt to the interior
surface of the oven).
•
4.
DO NOT force the oven
door open. This can damage the
automatic door locking system. Use
caution when opening the door after
the self-cleaning cycle is completed.
The oven may still be VERY HOT.
5.
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
Allow the oven to cool before precleaning.
Wear rubber gloves when precleaning and while wiping up the residue
after the self-clean cycle.
DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any
part of the self-cleaning oven.
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The woven material of the oven door
gasket isessential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage
or remove the gasket.
DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so
could cause damage.
Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils and any aluminum foil.
These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures.
Oven racks may be left in the oven or may be removed. If they go through
the clean cycle their color will turn slightly blue and the finish will be dull.
After the cycle is complete and the oven has cooled, rub the sides of the
racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of baby oil or
salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack position).
Remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the selfcleaning cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers
can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. DO
NOT allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk,
tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as
they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.
Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door
gasket and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. These
areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water.
