TO CHECK IF THE DEVICES ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE RANGE FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET SECURELY ATTACHED TO FLOOR OR WALL, 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. ■ Proper Installation – Be sure the range is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician. ■ 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. ■ 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. ■ Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven or near surface units. ■ 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. 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. ■ 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. ■ Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements – Heating elements should never be immersed in water. ■ 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. ■ 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. ■ Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. ■ 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.

COOKTOP USE WARNING Fire Hazard Turn off all controls when done cooking. Failure to do so can result in death or fire. The control knobs can be set to anywhere between HIGH and LOW. Push in and turn to setting. REMEMBER: When range is in use, the entire cooktop area may become hot. Coil Elements and Burner Bowls (on some models) Coil elements should be level for optimal cooking results. Burner bowls, when clean, reflect heat back to the cooktop. They also help catch spills. Cookware should not extend move than ½" (1.3 cm) over the coil element. If cookware is uneven or too large, it can produce excess heat, causing the burner bowl to change color. Ceramic Glass (on some models) The surface cooking area will glow red when an element is on. Some parts of the surface cooking area may not glow red when an element is on. This is normal operation. The burner will cycle on and off to maintain the selected heat level. It will also randomly cycle off and back on again even while in High to keep the cooktop from extreme temperatures. It is normal for the surface of light colored ceramic glass to appear to change color when surface cooking areas are hot. As the glass cools, it will return to its original color. Clean the cooktop after each use to help avoid scratches, pitting, abrasions and to condition the glass surface. Ceramic glass cooktop cleaner and a cooktop scraper are also recommended for stubborn soils. Do not use abrasive cleaners, cleaning pads or harsh chemicals for cleaning. The Cooktop Care Kit Part Number 31605 contains all of the items needed to clean and condition your ceramic glass cooktop. Refer to the “Range Care” section for additional information. IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the cooktop surface and to make soils easier to remove, clean the cooktop after each use to remove all soils. ■ Avoid storing jars or cans above the cooktop. Dropping a heavy or hard object onto the cooktop could crack the cooktop. ■ To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not leave a hot lid on the cooktop. As the cooktop cools, air can become trapped between the lid and the cooktop, and the ceramic glass could break when the lid is removed. 5 ■ For foods containing sugar in any form, clean up all spills and soils as soon as possible. Allow the cooktop to cool down slightly. Then, while wearing oven mitts, remove the spills using a scraper while the surface is still warm. If sugary spills are allowed to cool down, they can adhere to the cooktop and can cause pitting and permanent marks. ■ To avoid scratches, do not slide cookware or bakeware across the cooktop. Aluminum or copper bottoms and rough finishes on cookware or bakeware could leave scratches or marks on the cooktop. ■ Do not cook popcorn in prepackaged aluminum containers on the cooktop. They could leave aluminum marks that cannot be removed completely. ■ To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not allow objects that could melt, such as plastic or aluminum foil, to touch any part of the entire cooktop. ■ To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not use the cooktop as a cutting board. ■ Use cookware about the same size as the surface cooking area. Cookware should not extend more than ½" (1.3 cm) outside the area. B Ceramic Glass Cooktop Cleaning (on some models) Clean the cooktop after each use to help avoid scratches, pitting, abrasions and to condition the glass surface. Ceramic glass cooktop cleaner and a cooktop scraper are also recommended for stubborn soils. Do not use abrasive cleaners, cleaning pads or harsh chemicals for cleaning. The Cooktop Care Kit Part Number 31605 contains all of the items needed to clean and condition your ceramic glass cooktop. Refer to the “Range Care” section for additional information. IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the cooktop surface and to make soils easier to remove, clean the cooktop after each use to remove all soils. Cooktop On Indicator Light The Cooktop On indicator light is located on the console panel. When any control knob on the console panel is turned on, the Cooktop On indicator light will glow. Hot Surface Indicator Light (on some models) On ceramic glass models, the hot surface indicator light is located on the console panel. The hot surface indicator light will glow as long as any surface cooking area is too hot to touch, even after the surface cooking area is turned off. A Dual Zone Cooking Element (on some models) C A. Surface cooking area B. Cookware/canner C. ½" (1.3 cm) maximum overhang ■ Use flat-bottomed cookware for best heat conduction and energy efficiency. Cookware with rounded, warped, ribbed or dented bottoms could cause uneven heating and poor cooking results. ■ Determine flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler across the bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the ruler, no space or light should be visible between it and the cookware. ■ Cookware designed with slightly indented bottoms or small expansion channels can be used. ■ Make sure the bottoms of pots and pans are clean and dry before using them. Residue and water can leave deposits when heated. ■ To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not cook foods directly on the cooktop. 6 The Dual Zone Cooking Element offers flexibility depending on the size of the cookware. Single size can be used in the same way as a regular element. The dual size combines both the single and outer element and is recommended for larger size cookware. A B A. Single B. Dual Cookware IMPORTANT: Do not leave empty cookware on a hot surface cooking area, element or surface burner. Ideal cookware should have a flat bottom, straight sides and a wellfitting lid, and the material should be of medium-to-heavy thickness. Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop. Aluminum and copper may be used as a core or base in cookware. However, when used as a base they can leave permanent marks on the grates. Cookware material is a factor in how quickly and evenly heat is transferred, which affects cooking results. A nonstick finish has the same characteristics as its base material. For example, aluminum cookware with a nonstick finish will take on the properties of aluminum. Cookware with nonstick surfaces should not be used under the broiler. Check for flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler across the bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the ruler, no space or light should be visible between it and the cookware. 1 2 3 1 4 5 Use the following chart as a guide for cookware material characteristics. COOKWARE CHARACTERISTICS Aluminum ■ Heats quickly and evenly. ■ Suitable for all types of cooking. ■ Medium or heavy thickness is best for most cooking tasks. ■ Heats slowly and evenly. ■ Good for browning and frying. ■ Maintains heat for slow cooking. ■ Follow manufacturer’s instructions. ■ Heats slowly, but unevenly. ■ Ideal results on low to medium heat settings. Copper ■ Heats very quickly and evenly. Earthenware ■ Follow manufacturer’s instructions. ■ Use on low heat settings. Porcelain enamel-on-steel or cast iron ■ See stainless steel or cast iron. Stainless steel ■ Heats quickly, but unevenly. ■ A core or base of aluminum or copper on stainless steel provides even heating. Cast iron Ceramic or Ceramic glass 6 2 7 8 3 9 10 4 11 12 13 5 14 15 6 16 17 18 7 19 20 Use flat-bottomed cookware for best cooking results and energy efficiency. The cookware should be about the same size as the cooking area outlined on the cooktop. Cookware should not extend more than ½" (1.3 cm) outside the area. Home Canning Canning can be performed on a glass smooth top cooking surface. When canning for long periods, alternate the use of surface cooking areas or elements between batches. This allows time for the most recently used areas to cool. ■ Center the canner on the largest surface cooking area or element. On electric cooktops, canners should not extend more than ½" (1.3 cm) beyond the surface cooking area or element. ■ Do not place canner on 2 surface cooking areas or elements at the same time. ■ On ceramic glass models, use only flat-bottomed canners to avoid damage to the cooktop and elements. ■ For more information, contact your local agricultural extension office, or refer to the USDA Home Canning Guides. Companies that manufacture home canning products can also offer assistance. 7 OVEN USE Odors and smoke are normal when the oven is used the first few times, or when it is heavily soiled.

Aluminum Foil IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the oven bottom finish, do not line the oven bottom with any type of foil or liner. For best cooking results, do not cover entire oven rack with foil because air must be able to move freely. Positioning Racks and Bakeware IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the porcelain finish, do not place food or bakeware directly on the oven door or bottom. Bakeware To cook food evenly, hot air must be able to circulate. Allow 2" (5 cm) of space around bakeware and oven walls. Make sure that no bakeware piece is directly over another. Racks ■ Position racks before turning on the oven. ■ Do not move racks with bakeware on them. ■ Make sure racks are level. To move a rack, pull it out to the stop position, raise the front edge, and then lift out. Use the following illustration and charts as a guide. Rack Positions Rack 5: Toasting bread or broiling thin, non-fatty foods. Rack 4: Use for 2-rack baking and broiling. Rack 3: Most baked goods on a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan, layer cakes, frozen convenience foods. Broiling chicken pieces. Rack 2: Roasting small cuts of meat, pies, casseroles, bundt cakes, and 2-rack baking. Rack 1: Roasting large cuts of meat and poultry. Multiple Rack Cooking 2-rack: Use rack positions 2 and 4. Baking Layer Cakes on 2 Racks For best results when baking cakes on 2 racks, use racks 2 and 4 for baking. Place the cakes on the racks as shown. 5 4 3 2 1 9 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 A. Oven vent Baking and Roasting ® ACCUBAKE Temperature Management System Preheating The ACCUBAKE® 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. When START is pressed, the oven will begin preheating. Once 100ºF (38ºC) 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 Leave the door open 6" (15 cm) at the broil stop position to ensure proper broiling temperature. Preheat the oven for 5 minutes before putting food in unless recommended otherwise in the recipe. Position food on grid in a broiler pan, then place it in the center of the oven rack. NOTE: Odors and smoke are normal the first few times the oven is used or if the oven is heavily soiled. Changing the temperature when broiling allows more precise control when cooking. The lower the broil setting, the slower the cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish and poultry may cook better at lower broil settings. Use racks 4 or 5 for broiling. Refer to the “Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section for more information. On lower settings, the broil element will cycle on and off to maintain the proper 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. Please refer to the “Accessories” section for more information.
