PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE
TO EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY
(a) Do not attempt to operate this oven with the door open since open-door operation can result in harmful
exposure to microwave energy. It is important not to defeat or tamper with the safety interlocks.
(b) Do not place any object between the oven front face and the door or allow soil or cleaner residue to accumulate on sealing surfaces.
(c) Do not operate the oven if it is damaged. It is particularly important that the oven door close properly and
that there is no damage to the: (1) door (bent), (2) hinges and latches (broken or loosened), (3) door seals and
sealing surfaces.
(d) The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone except properly qualified service personnel.
These precautions apply to the Microwave Drawer only.

Important safety instructions
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING
combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable
vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this appliance.
8 Do not use water on grease fires. Smother a flame or
use a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher. Flaming
grease outside a pan can be put out by covering it with
baking soda or, if available, by a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
9Use only dry potholders - a moist or damp potholder on
hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do
not let potholders touch hot surfaces, radiant surface
units or heating elements. Do not use a towel or other
bulky cloth.
10 CAUTION Do not store items of interest to children
in cabinets above a range or on the backsplash of a range.
Children climbing on the range to reach items could
be seriously injured.
11 Do not touch the surface units, heating elements or the
interior surface of the oven. These surfaces may be hot
even though they are dark in color. These surfaces may
become hot enough to cause burns. During and after
use, do not touch or let clothing or other flammable
materials contact surface units, heating elements or
interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient
time to cool. Other potentially hot surfaces include:
cooktop, areas facing the cooktop, oven vent opening,
surfaces near the vent opening, oven door and window
and area around the door.
12 Have the installer show you the location of the circuit
breaker or fuse. Mark it for easy reference.
13 Before performing any service, disconnect the range
power supply at the household distribution panel by
removing the fuse or switching off the circuit breaker.
14 Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on the
door, Microwave Drawer or cooktop. They could
damage the range and even tip it over, causing severe
personal injury.
15 Teach children not to play with the controls or any other
part of the range.
16 Always keep wooden and plastic utensils and canned
food a safe distance from your range.
17 Always keep combustible wall coverings, curtains or
drapes a safe distance from your range.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE AND WARNING
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement
Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) requires the Governor of
California to publish a list of substances known to the State
of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm and
requires businesses to warn customer of potential exposures
to such substances.
Users of this appliance are hereby warned that when it
is engaged in the self-clean cycle, there may be low level
exposure to carbon monoxide, a chemical known to the State
of California to cause reproductive harm. Exposure can be
minimized by properly venting the oven to the outdoors
during the self-clean cycle, by opening a window and/or door
in the room where the appliance is located.
WARNING All ranges can tip and injury
could result. To reduce the risk of tipping of the
appliance from abnormal usage by excessive
loading of the oven door, the appliance must
be secured to wall and floor by installing the
Anti-Tip device supplied. If it is not, there is
a possible risk of the range tipping over and
causing injury if you or a child stand, sit or lean
on an open door. Please refer to the Anti-Tip
device information in the Installation Manual.
To check if the device is properly installed and engaged, look
underneath the range with a flashlight to make sure one of
the rear leveling legs is properly engaged in the bracket slot.
The Anti-Tip device secures the rear leveling leg to the floor
when properly engaged. You should check this anytime the
range has been moved.
Safety precautions
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions
should be followed, including the following:
1Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as
described in this manual.
2 Be sure your appliance is properly installed and
grounded by a qualified technician in accordance with
the provided installation instructions.
3 Never use appliance for warming or heating the room.
4 Children should not be left alone or unattended in area
where appliance is in use. They should never be allowed
to sit or stand on any part of the appliance.
5 Never wear loose-fitting or hanging garments while
using the appliance. Be careful when reaching for items
stored over the range. Flammable material could be
ignited if brought in contact with hot surface units or
heating elements and may cause severe burns.
6 Do not repair or replace any part of appliance unless
specifically recommended in this manual. All other
servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
7 Do not store flammable materials in an oven, Microwave
Drawer or near surface units. Do not store or use
Radiant Surface units
1 Use proper pan size — this appliance has different size
surface units. Select utensils having flat bottoms
large enough to cover the surface unit heating element.
The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion
of surface unit heating element to direct contact and
may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship
of utensils to heating element will also improve
efficiency.
2 Never leave surface units unattended at high heat
settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers
that may catch on fire.
3 Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic,
Important safety instructions
1 Read all instructions before using the appliance.
earthware or other glazed utensils are suitable for
cooktop service without breaking due to the sudden
change in temperature.
4 To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable
materials and spillage due to unintentional contact with
utensils, the handle of a utensil should be positioned so
that it is turned inward and does not extend over adjacent
surface units.
5 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.
6 Clean cooktop with caution. If a wet sponge or cloth is
used to wipe spills on a hot surface unit, be careful to
avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface. Please see cleaning
the glass cooktop section.
7 Clean ventilating hoods frequently. Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.
8 When flaming foods under the hood, turn the fan on.
9 Deep fat fryers - use extreme caution when moving the
grease kettle or disposing of hot grease.
10 Always turn the surface units off before removing
cookware.
11 Keep an eye on foods being fried at high or medium
high heat settings.
12 Food for frying should be as dry as possible. Frost on
frozen foods or moisture on fresh foods can cause hot
fat to bubble up and over the sides of the pan.
13 Use little fat for effective shallow or deep fat frying.
Filling the pan too full of fat can cause spillovers when
food is added.
If a combination of oils or fats will be used in frying,
stir together before heating or as fats melt slowly.
14 Always heat fat slowly and watch as it heats.
15 Use a deep fat thermometer whenever possible to prevent
heating fat beyond the smoking point.
16 Avoid scratching the glass cooktop. The cooktop can
be scratched with items such as sharp instruments, rings
or other jewelry and rivets on clothing.
17 Large scratches or impacts to glass doors or cooktop
can lead to broken or shattered glass.
18 Never use the glass cooktop surface as cutting board.
19 Do not place or store items that can melt or catch fire
on the glass cooktop, even when it is not being used.
20 Be careful when placing spoons or other stirring utensils
on glass cooktop surface when it is in use. They may
become hot and could cause burns.

introduction to TOUCHSCREEN
This Sharp Insight Range features an LCD Touchscreen that
is designed to make operation easy by providing step-by-step
instructions right on the active touchscreen display.
The “Microwave Drawer Home Page” gives you six options:
Reheat, Defrost and Automatic Cooking, plus Popcorn,
Minute Plus and Keep Warm. By simply touching one of
these pads, you will see more options and specific directions.
All of these settings are automatic, but microwave cooking
times and power levels can be set manually, as well (see
page 18-19).
After the time of day and date are set (instructions on next
page), the “Home Screen” will appear. Notice that the Lower
Oven operation pads appear on the left side of the touchscreen
and the Microwave options are on the right.
As you use the touchscreen, you will see that regardless of
where you start—from the Home Screen, from the Lower
Oven Home Page or from the Microwave Drawer Home
Page—you will get to the same options and information.

Information YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUTCOOKING UTENSILS
ABOUT the Cooktop
For best results and energy conservation, choose cooking
utensils as below.
• Glass ceramic cooktop - Make sure the surface and
the pan bottom are clean before turning on. Do not use the
cooktop if the glass is broken or if metal melts on it. • Bottom of pan- Pans should have flat bottoms that make
good contact with the entire surface unit. Check for flatness
by using a straight edge. Pans with curved or warped bottoms
are not recommended.
• Radiant surface units - The radiant surface heating units
are beneath the smooth glass ceramic cooktop. The design on
the cooktop outlines the area of the surface unit underneath.
When the cooktop is on, the cooktop-on indicator, next to the
surface cooking control knob, comes on even if the cooktop
unit doesn’t look red. The areas around the units may become
hot enough to cause burns.
• Size of pan - Pan size should match the amount of food
and the size of the surface unit. Do not use canners or frypans
that exceed the width of the radiant surface units.
• Material of pan - Always use a utensil for its intended
purpose. Follow manufacturer’s instructions. Some utensils
were not made to be used on the cooktop.
• Hot surface indicator - An indicator light, on the
cooktop, comes on when the surface unit is turned on and
the cooktop temperature increases. The indicator will remain
on until the surface has cooled below 150˚F even after the
unit is turned off.
• Position of pan - Always place the pan in the center of
the surface unit you are using. • Wok Cooking - Only a flat-bottomed wok is recommended.
Do not use round-bottom wok or a wok with a support ring.
• Temperature limiter - The radiant surface units have a
temperature limiter that allows the unit to cycle on and off,
even at the HI setting. It protects the glass ceramic cooktop
from damage. Cycling at the HI setting can occur when
improper cookware is used.
Note:
• Do not slide cookware across the cooktop surface because
it can scratch the glass or may leave marks which need to
be removed promptly.
• Never allow a pan to boil dry. This could damage the pan
and the countertop.
Note:
• Never leave any items on the cooktop. Hot units may
ignite flammable items, melt or soften plastics or increase
pressure in closed containers causing them to burst.
• Do not use aluminum foil on the cooktop surface.
• Do not use cooktop as a cutting board.
• Don’t store heavy items above the cooktop as they can
cause damage if they drop on to the cooktop.
• Never cook directly on the cooktop. Always use
cookware.

The Cooktop Warm Zone will keep hot cooked food at an
ideal serving temperature. To turn Cooktop Warm on, touch
the Cooktop Warm pad, then touch number 0 within 3
seconds. The red indicator will light. To turn the Cooking
Warm Zone off, touch the Cooktop Warm pad.
3 When cooking is completed, turn the knob to OFF.
Remove pan.
Note for surface unit: A hot surface indicator light in the
center of the cooktop will glow when a radiant unit is turned
on. It will remain on until the surface is cooled to about
150˚F. Be sure the knob is turned to OFF when you have
finished cooking.
CAUTION The Cooktop Warm Zone will not glow red
when it is hot, but it does become hot enough to cause burns.
Always use oven mittens when removing food from the
Warm Zone as cookware and plates will be hot. Use only
cookware recommended for top-of-range cooking. Do not
use plastic wrap to cover foods. Plastic may melt on to the
surface and be very difficult to clean.
The glass ceramic cooktop retains heat after the radiant
surface units have been turned to OFF. If possible, turn the
units off and allow foods to finish cooking with the retained
heat. It may be necessary to remove the pan from the unit to
prevent further cooking, also.

MICROWAVE DRAWER cooking
• Check for doneness. Look for signs indicating that
cooking temperatures have been reached.
Doneness signs include:
- Food steams throughout, not just at edge.
- Center bottom of dish is very hot to the touch.
- Poultry thigh joints move easily.
- Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
- Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
Information YOU NEED TO KNOW
ALWAYS have food in the Microwave Drawer when it is on
to absorb the microwave energy.
When using the Microwave Drawer at power levels below
100%, you may hear the magnetron cycling on and off. It is
normal for the exterior of the Microwave Drawer to be warm
to the touch when cooking or reheating.
Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking.
Room humidity and the moisture in food will influence the
amount of moisture that condenses in the Microwave Drawer.
Generally, covered foods will not cause as much condensation
as uncovered ones. Vents between Microwave Drawer and
oven must not be blocked.
The Microwave Drawer is for food preparation only. It should
not be used to dry clothes or newspapers.
Your Microwave Drawer is rated 1000 watts by using the
IEC Test Procedure. In using recipes or package directions,
check food a minute or two before the minimum time and
add time accordingly.
When opening or closing the Microwave Drawer quickly,
food in the Microwave Drawer may be spilled. To clean,
please refer to the Cleaning and Care section on page 43.
About Utensils and Coverings
It is not necessary to buy all new cookware. Many pieces
already in your kitchen can be used successfully in your new
Microwave Drawer. Make sure the utensil does not touch the
interior walls during cooking.
Use these utensils for safe microwave cooking and reheating:
• glass ceramic (Pyroceram®), such as Corningware®.
• heat-resistant glass (Pyrex®)
• microwave-safe plastics
• microwave-safe paper plates
• microwave-safe pottery, stoneware and porcelain
• browning dish (Do not exceed recommended preheating
time. Follow manufacturer's directions.)
These items can be used for short time reheating of foods
that have little fat or sugar in them:
• wood, straw, wicker
DO NOT USE
• metal pans and bakeware
• dishes with metallic trim
• non-heat-resistant glass
• non-microwave-safe plastics (margarine tubs)
• recycled paper products
• brown paper bags
• food storage bags
• metal twist-ties
Should you wish to check if a dish is safe for microwaving,
place the empty dish in the oven and microwave on HIGH
for 30 seconds. A dish which becomes very hot should not
be used.
The following coverings are ideal:
• Paper towels are good for covering foods for reheating and
absorbing fat while cooking bacon.
• Wax paper can be used for cooking and reheating.
• Plastic wrap that is specially marked for microwave use
can be used for cooking and reheating. DO NOT allow plastic
wrap to touch food. Vent so steam can escape.
• Lids that are microwave-safe are a good choice because
heat is kept near the food to hasten cooking.
• Oven cooking bags are good for large meats or foods that
Radio or TV Interference
Should there be any interference caused by the Microwave
Drawer to your radio or TV, relocate the radio or TV as far
away from the range as feasible or check position and signal
of receiving antenna.
About Microwave Cooking
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas towards
outside of dish.
• Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest amount of time
indicated and add more as needed. Food severely overcooked
can smoke or ignite.
• Cover foods while cooking. Check recipe or cookbook
for suggestions: paper towels, wax paper, microwave plastic
wrap or a lid. Covers prevent spattering and help foods to
cook evenly.
• Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum foil any thin
areas of meat or poultry to prevent overcooking before dense,
thick areas are cooked thoroughly.
• Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or twice
during cooking, if possible.
• Turn foods over once during microwaving to speed cooking
of such foods as chicken and hamburgers. Large items like
roasts must be turned over at least once.
• Rearrange foods such as meatballs halfway through
cooking both from top to bottom and from right to left.
• Add standing time. Remove food from Microwave Drawer
and stir, if possible. Cover for standing time which allows
the food to finish cooking without overcooking.
16
MICROWAVE DRAWER cooking
need tenderizing. DO NOT use metal twist ties. Remember
to slit bag so steam can escape.
How to use aluminum foil in your Microwave Drawer:
• Small flat pieces of aluminum foil placed smoothly on the
food can be used to shield areas that are either defrosting or
cooking too quickly.
• Foil should not come closer than one inch to any surface
of the Microwave Drawer.
Should you have questions about utensils or coverings, check
a good microwave cookbook or follow recipe suggestions.
ACCESSORIES There are many microwave accessories
available for purchase. Evaluate carefully before you purchase
so that they meet your needs. A microwave-safe thermometer
will assist you in determining correct doneness and assure
you that foods have been cooked to safe temperatures. Sharp
is not responsible for any damage to the Microwave Drawer
when accessories are used.
• Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from the face
and hands. Slowly lift the farthest edge of a dish’s covering
and carefully open popcorn and oven cooking bags away
from the face.
• Stay near the Microwave Drawer while it’s in use and
check cooking progress frequently so that there is no chance
of overcooking food.
• NEVER use the Microwave Drawer for storing cookbooks
or other items.
• Select, store and handle food carefully to preserve its high
quality and minimize the spread of foodborne bacteria.
• Keep waveguide cover clean. Food residue can cause arcing
and/or fires. See page 43.

About Children and the Microwave
Children below the age of 7 should use the Microwave
Drawer with a supervising person very near to them.
Between the ages of 7 and 12, the supervising person should
be in the same room.
The child must be able to reach the Microwave Drawer
comfortably.
At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing on the
Microwave Drawer.
Children should be taught all safety precautions: use
potholders, remove coverings carefully, pay special attention
to packages that crisp food because they may be extra hot.
Don’t assume that because a child has mastered one cooking
skill he/she can cook everything.
Children need to learn that the Microwave Drawer is not a
toy. See page 40 for Control Lock feature.

the remaining time appears on the display. At this time,
you may stir or season food, as desired.
Sharp's Sensor is a semi-conductor device that detects the
vapor (moisture and humidity) emitted from the food as it
heats. The sensor adjusts the cooking times and power levels
for various foods and quantities.
7 If the sensor does not detect vapor properly when
cooking or reheating foods, error messages will be
displayed, and the microwave will turn off.

manual defrost
If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on the Defrost Chart or is above or below the limits in the AMOUNT column
on the Defrost Chart, you need to defrost manually.
You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or previously cooked, by using 30% power. Estimate defrosting time, enter it and
follow the exact procedure found on Variable Power Cooking on page 18.
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food the rule of thumb is approximately four minutes per pound. For example, defrost
four minutes for one pound of frozen spaghetti sauce.
Always stop the oven periodically to remove or separate the portions that are defrosted. If food is not defrosted at the end of the
estimated defrosting time, program the oven in one minute increments on 30% power until totally defrosted.
When using plastic containers from the freezer, defrost only long enough to remove from the plastic in order to place in a
microwave-safe dish.

OVEN cooking
Information YOU NEED TO KNOW
Aluminum Foil
Do not place aluminum foil on the oven bottom. It is not
recommended to use aluminum foil to line the broiler pan
and broiler grid. If you would like to use it to make cleaning
easier, you must mold the foil tightly to the grid and cut slits
in it just like the grid. Without the slits, the foil will prevent
fat and meat juices from draining into the broiler pan, and
then the juices could become hot enough to catch on fire.
• Be sure all packing material is removed from oven before
turning on.
• Oven vent location - The oven vent is located at the
right side of the front panel between the Microwave Drawer
and oven. This area could become hot during oven use. It
is normal for steam to come out of the vent. The vent is
important for proper air circulation in the oven and good
baking results. Never block this vent.
OVEN BAKING AND BROILING
The Bake and Broil features use the top and bottom heaters;
however, no air is moving. This heater usage is the traditional
way electric ovens bake and broil. Standard cooking
directions and most cookbooks use traditional times and
temperatures so can be used when using Bake and Broil.

To replace, fit the rack onto the guides on the oven walls.
Tilt the front of the rack upward and slide the rack back
into place.
FOOD
Directions for removing and replacing the EZ Pull racks are
on page 10. Read instructions and use racks correctly.
Air circulation in the oven
Baking results will be better if baking pans are centered in
the oven as much as possible. If baking four cake layers at
the same time, place two layers on rack #1 and two layers
on rack #3. Stagger pans on the rack so one is not directly
above the other. For best air circulation and baking results
allow 2-4 inches around the cookware and be sure pans and
cookware do not touch each other, the oven door, sides or
back of the oven cavity. The hot air must circulate around
the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat to reach
around the food.

CONVECTION cooking
The Convection settings use heaters on the top and bottom of the oven as well as a rear heater located behind the rear wall
and convection fan cover. The rear heater is used for true European convection performance. There are various sequences of
the heaters used to achieve ideal cooking. The convection fan moves the heated air throughout the entire oven to ensure even
browning and crisping.
The rear heater shuts off if the oven door is open for longer than one minute. The convection fan shuts off when the door is
opened. Keep heat loss to a minimum by only opening the oven door when necessary and always closing it quickly.
HOW TO SET oven temperature for CONVECTION BAKE

How to start self-clean
Remember to allow time for the oven to cool down and the oven door to unlock (approx. 1 hour) if you are planning to use the
oven after a self-clean cycle. Remove the broiler pan and broiler grid, all utensils and any foil. We recommend removing the
oven racks. If they go through the clean cycle, they will darken, lose their luster and become hard to slide. With soap and water,
clean any soil from the oven frame and the area outside the gasket on the door. These areas heat during self-cleaning cycle so
soil could be burned on. To avoid heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperature, remove heavy spillovers in the oven
using hot soapy water and cloth before cleaning cycle.
We recommend venting your kitchen with an open window or using a ventilation fan during the self-cleaning cycle. • Suppose you want to set the oven for the Light Self-Cleaning cycle.

Oven locks automatically. For immediate start, cleaning time appears and begins counting down. If you have selected Delay Start,
the oven will not turn on and the timer will not begin counting down until the time of day you have set. When self cleaning time
is completed, a signal will sound. It will not be possible to open the door until the temperature drops below the lock temperature
and “COOL” indicator goes off.
After a self-clean cycle, you may notice some white ash in the oven. Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the oven cools. Gently
lift the bottom element to wipe underneath it. It cannot be removed.
If the racks become hard to slide, apply a small amount of cooking oil to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the oven racks.
Note: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any range. Move
birds to another well-ventilated room.
During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the oven can become very hot to touch. Do not leave small children unattended
near the appliance.
If heavy spillovers are not wiped up before the self-cleaning cycle, they may flame and cause more smoke and odor than usual.
This is normal and safe and should not cause alarm.
The glass ceramic cooktop and the Microwave Drawer can be used while the oven is self-cleaning.

gone off. Sugar spills are the exception to this.
1 Apply a few drops of cleaner cream to the cooktop that is
not hot.
Non-Cooktop Surfaces
2 Dampen clean paper towel and clean top.
Exterior
3 Wipe off with another clean, damp paper towel, then
wipe dry.
The outside surface is precoated metal and plastic. Clean
the outside with mild soap and water; rinse and dry with
a soft cloth. Do not use any type of household or abrasive
cleaner.
Note:
• Make sure bottom of cookware and cooking area are clean
and dry before turning on the cooktop.
Stainless Steel Surface (select models)
• Wipe up food spills and spatters before they burn on the
surface.
The exterior should be wiped often with a soft damp cloth and
polished with a soft dry cloth to maintain its beauty. There
are also a variety of products designed especially for cleaning
and shining the stainless exterior of the oven. We recommend
that the cleaner be applied to a soft cloth and then carefully
used on the stainless exterior rather than sprayed directly on
to it. Follow package directions carefully.
• Do not mix cleaning products. Mixtures may interact and
damage the surface.
Sugary spillovers (jellies, fudge,
candy, syrups etc.), melted plastics or
Heavy burned on residue
Sugary spillovers, melted plastics or heavy burned on residue
can cause pitting of the surface of your cooktop unless the
spill is removed while still hot.
Outside of the Door
Wipe the window on both sides with a soft damp cloth to
remove any spills or spatters. Metal parts will be easier to
maintain if wiped frequently with a soft damp cloth. Avoid
the use of spray and other harsh cleaners as they may stain,
streak or dull the door surface.
You must begin cleaning the spills while the cooktop is
still hot.
1 Turn off all surface units and remove all pans immediately.
2Wearing an oven mitt, use a razor blade scraper at a 30
degree angle against the glass ceramic surface and scrape
from hot surface to a cooler area.
Control Knobs
The control knobs may be removed for easier cleaning. Before
removing the knobs, make sure the knobs are in the OFF
position. Clean with a soft cloth dampened with mild soap
and water; rinse and dry with a soft cloth. When replacing the
knobs, check the OFF position to insure proper placement.
3Remove the spills with paper towels.
Note:
• Do not use a dull or nicked blade. Be sure to use a new,
sharp razor scraper.
• Do not use the razor blade for daily cleaning as it may
wear the pattern on the glass.
Touch Control Panel
If desired, the touch pads may be deactivated before cleaning.
See the Control Lock information on page 40 of this manual.
Wipe the panel with a cloth dampened slightly with water
only. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not scrub or use any sort of
chemical cleaners. Close door and touch Stop/Clear.
Metal marks or burned on residue Metal marks and burned on residue should be removed
immediately after the cooktop has cooled. Metal marks can
become permanent if not removed prior to future use.
COOKTOP
1Dampen a “scratchless” or “never scratch” pad that is safe
for non-stick cookware. The pattern and glass will be damaged
if the pad is not damp or is soiled or if another type of pad is
used. Apply a cleaner cream for glass ceramic cooktops.
If the cooktop should crack or break, do not use or attempt
to clean it. Call an authorized servicer.
Normal daily use cleaning
2Scrub to remove as much soil as possible.
Only use cleaning products that have been specifically
designed for glass ceramic cooktops. Read and follow all
instructions and warnings on the cleaning cream label. A
sample cleaner cream is supplied with your range.
3Apply the cleaner cream over the soil, cover with a damp
paper towel and let stand 30 minutes to 1 hour. Keep moist
by covering the paper towel with plastic wrap.
4Scrub again and wipe off with another clean, damp paper
towel. Then wipe dry.
Before using the cooktop, clean the cooktop with the cleaner
cream. To avoid possible damage to the cooking surface, do
not apply cleaning cream to the glass surface when it is hot.

in the hook of the hinge levers. You may have to apply a
little downward pressure on the door to pull the locks fully
over the hooks.
Microwave DRAWER
Interior
Cleaning is easy because no heat is generated to the interior
surfaces; therefore, there is no baking and setting of spills or
spattering. To clean the interior surfaces, including drawer
sealing surfaces, wipe with a soft damp cloth. DO NOT USE
ABRASIVE OR HARSH CLEANERS OR SCOURING
PADS. For heavier soil, use mild soap; wipe clean with a soft
damp cloth. Do not use any chemical oven cleaners.

lay the door flat with the inside of the door facing down.
Remove the food crumbs from the Microwave Drawer guides.
Wipe with a soft dry cloth in order to keep the Microwave
Drawer opening and closing easily.
Waveguide Cover
The waveguide cover (located on the inside
top of the microwave drawer area) is made from mica, so
it requires special care. Keep the waveguide cover clean to
assure good microwave performance. Carefully wipe with
a soft damp cloth any food spatters from the surface of
the cover immediately after they occur. Built-up splashes
may overheat and cause smoke or possibly catch fire. Do
not remove the waveguide cover.
ATTENTION
Lock in normal position.
Odor Removal
Occasionally, a cooking odor may remain in the Microwave
Drawer. To remove, combine 1 cup water, grated peel and
juice of one lemon and several whole cloves in a 2-cup glass
measuring cup. Boil for several minutes using 100% power.
Allow to sit in the Microwave Drawer until cool. Wipe interior
with a soft cloth.

particles with a soap filled pad or plastic scouring pad. Rinse
and polish dry with a soft cloth.
This glass shield must be in place whenever the oven is
in use.
The broiler pan, grid and roast/broil rack can be washed in
