Important Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
OVEN
COOKTOP
• Use Care When Opening Oven Door or Warmer Drawer (if
equipped)—Stand to the side of the range when opening the door
of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or
replace food in the oven.
• Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven vent is located
under the left rear surface element if your model is equipped with
coil elements. The oven vent is located below the backguard for
models equipped with ceramic-glass cook tops. Touching the
surfaces in this area when the oven is operating may cause
severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on
or near the oven vent. These items could melt or ignite.
• Placement of Oven Racks. Always place oven racks in desired
location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is
hot use extreme caution. Use potholders and grasp the rack with
both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot
heating elements in the oven. Remove all utensils from the rack
before moving.
• Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The broiler pan and
its insert allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away from the high
heat of the broiler.
• Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil. Exposed fat
and grease could ignite.
• Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven
bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual.
Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric
shock, or fire.
• Know which knob controls each surface heating unit. Place a
pan of food on the unit before turning it on, and turn the unit off
before removing the pan.
• Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped with one or
more surface units of different sizes. 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 element will also improve efficiency.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend Over
Adjacent Surface Elements—To reduce the risk of burns, ignition
of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact
with the utensil, the handle of the utensil should be positioned so
that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface
units.
• Never Leave Surface Elements Unattended at High Heat
Settings—Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that
may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Do Not Immerse or Soak Removable Heating Elements—
Heating elements should never be immersed in water. Heating
elements clean themselves during normal operation.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass, glass/
ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are
suitable for cook top service without breaking due to the sudden
change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s
recommendations for cook top use.
• When flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn the fan on.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR RANGE
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area underneath each
surface element. Do not allow grease to accumulate.
• Kitchen cleaners and aerosols—Always follow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for use. Be aware that excess
residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing damage and injury.
• Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently—Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter. Follow manufacturer’s
instructions for cleaning.
COIL COOK TOP MODELS
• 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 reflector pans. Only use aluminum foil as recommended
in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or fire. Improper installation of these liners may
result in risk of electric shock, or fire.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to publish a list of substances known
to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure
to such substances.

Setting Surface & Oven Controls
To Operate the Oven Control
For satisfactory use of your oven, become familiar with the
various functions of the oven as described below. Note: The
Oven or Thermostat indicator light will glow when the oven
is turned on when baking or broiling. A quick glance at this
indicator light is an easy check to be sure the oven is turned
off.
To Bake
1. Arrange oven racks while the oven is still cool. See “Arranging
Oven Racks” under Before Setting Oven Control.
2. Turn the Oven Control (See Fig. 1) knob to the desired temperature.
3. Preheat the oven for 10 to 12 minutes before baking. Preheating
is not necessary when roasting, cooking casseroles or broiling
most foods.
4. When cooking is finished, turn the Oven Control knob to OFF.
Fig. 1
To Broil
1. Arrange oven rack while oven is still cool. For rare meats, position the broiler pan closer to the element (upper position).
For well-done foods such as chicken, lobster tails or thick cuts of meat, position the pan further from the element (lower
position).
2. Turn the Oven Control to Broil. Most foods can be broiled at the Broil setting. To sear rare steaks, allow the element to
become red-hot—about 2 minutes—before placing food in the oven.
3. Place the insert on the broiler pan (if equipped), then place the food on the insert. DO NOT use the broiler pan without the
insert or cover the insert with aluminum foil. The exposed fat could ignite.
4. Place the pan on the oven rack. Leave the door open at the broil stop position while broiling. The door will stay in this
position without closing.
5. Broil on one side until food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and serve. Note: Always pull the rack
out to the stop position before turning or removing food.
6. When broiling is finished, turn the Oven Control to OFF.

Care & Cleaning
(Cleaning Chart)
Surfaces
How to Clean
Aluminum (Trim Pieces) & Vinyl
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.
Painted and Plastic Control Knobs, Body
Parts, and Decorative Trim
For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils and
built-up grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on soil for 30
to 60 minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners
on any of these materials; they can scratch. To remove control knobs, turn to the
OFF position; grasp firmly and pull straight off the shaft. To replace knobs after
cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft then push the knob
into place.
Backguard
Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls to OFF and remove the control
knobs. To remove, pull each knob straight off the shaft. Clean using hot, soapy
water and a dishcloth. Rinse with a clean water using a dishcloth. Be sure to
squeeze excess water from the cloth before wiping the panel; especially when
wiping around the controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause
damage to the appliance.To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of
both the knob and the shaft then push the knob into place.
Porcelain Enamel Broiler Pan and Insert,
Door Liner, Body Parts, Warmer Drawer
(if equipped)
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a
1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with
an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and
a damp cloth, and then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry
with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged
during future heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
Oven Racks
Remove oven racks and clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following
manufacturer's instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry.
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 positions).
Oven door
To clean oven door, wash with hot, soapy water and a clean cloth. DO NOT
immerse the door in water.
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The oven door gasket is made of a silicone
rubber material on non self-cleaning models, which is essential for a good seal.
Care should be taken not to rub, damage or remove the gasket.
8
Care & Cleaning
Surface Elements and Drip Bowls - Surface elements can be unplugged and removed to make cleaning the drip pans
easier. The surface elements clean themselves when they are turned on. Food spilled on a hot element will burn off. Food spilled
on a cool element may be cleaned with a damp cloth—any remaining soil will burn off the next time the element is used.
Never immerse a surface element in water.
To Remove the Surface Elements and Drip Bowls
1. Lift the edge of the drip bowl across from the terminal end. Lift the surface
element and drip bowl together just enough to clear the cooktop.
2. While holding the drip bowl and surface element, gently pull the terminal end
out from the terminal plug. If equipped, DO NOT remove the hold down clip from
the drip bowl.
Be sure the range is cool
before removing elements or drip bowls.
Be careful not to bend terminal ends when
replacing elements after cleaning.
When lowering the lift-up
range top, grasp the sides with finger-tips
only. Be careful not to pinch fingers. DO
NOT drop or bend the range top when
raising or lowering. This could damage
the surface.
To Clean Drip Bowls
Wash in hot, soapy water or in the dishwasher. Rinse and dry while still warm. Hard
to remove, burned on soil can be removed by soaking the drip bowls for about 20
minutes in a lightly diluted liquid cleanser or a solution of ammonia and water (1/
2 cup ammonia to 1 gallon of water). A nylon scrubber may be used after soaking.
DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or steel wool, as they will scratch the surface.
Always rinse with clean water and polish dry with a soft cloth.
To Replace Drip Bowls and Surface Elements
1. Slide the terminal end on the element through the opening in the drip bowl.
2. Align the element support to rest on the rim inside the drip bowl. If your drip
bowl is equipped with a hold down clip, align the element support opposite the
terminal end with the slot in the hold down clip, and snap into place.
3. After the element is positioned in the drip bowl, line up the terminal end with
the terminal plug as shown.
4. Hold the surface element and drip bowl together as level as possible and firmly
push the terminal end into the terminal plug. Make sure element terminal is
seated properly into terminal plug. Make sure the surface element is level to
reduce the hazard of pans sliding off the element.
To Raise the Top for Cleaning
1. Grasp the sides and lift from the front. Lift-up rods will support the top in a
raised position. Only lift the top far enough to allow the support rods to snap
into place.
2. Clean underneath using a clean cloth and hot, soapy water.
3. To lower the top, gently push back on each rod to release the notched support.
Hold the range top and slide the lift rods down into the range frame.
Cleaning Oven Bottom
The bake element is designed to be gently tilted up using your hand from the front
of the bake element. This will allow easier access to the oven bottom for cleaning.
Be careful not to raise the element more than 4 or 5 inches from the resting position.

the hinge holes, the hinge(s) may snap back against the oven frame and could
pinch fingers or chip the porcelain finish on the oven front frame.
2. Hold door at the sides near the top while resting the lower front of door on your
knee. Insert the door channels at the bottom of door over the door hinges, (See
Fig. 3).
3. Allow the door to slide down into the door hinges evenly at the same 45 degree
angle. The hinge arms should be inserted into the bottom corners as far as they
can go.
4. Open door completely (horizontal with floor) and remove both screws from
holes in door hinges.
5. Reinstall the 2 screws into the door liner (See C Fig. 2).
6. If the door is not in alignment with the oven frame, remove door and repeat the
above steps.

Before You Call
Solutions to Common Problems
Before you call for service, review this list. It may save you time and expense. The list includes common occurrences that
are not the result of defective workmanship or materials in this appliance.
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE / SOLUTION
Range is not level.
Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven rack. Adjust
leveling legs at base of range until the oven rack is level.
Be sure floor is level and is strong and stable enough to adequately support range.
If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear unlevel. Be sure cabinets are square
and have sufficient room for range clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily. Appliance
must be accessible for service.
Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly. Contact builder or installer to make
appliance accessible.
Carpet interferes with range. Provide sufficient space so range can be lifted over carpet.
Surface element too hot or not hot enough.
Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface element to
be used.
Lightweight or warped pans used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or heavyweight
cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped pans. Cookware materials and weight of
the material affect heating. Heavy and medium-weight pans heat evenly. Because
lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily.
Surface element does not heat.
No power to the appliance. Check steps under "Entire Appliance Does Not Operate" in
this Before You Call Checklist.
Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface element to
be used.
Element not making contact in block. Follow instructions under "Surface Elements and
Drip Bowls" in the Care & Cleaning section.
Entire appliance does not operate.
Make sure cord/plug is plugged tightly into outlet.
The time of day must first be set in order to operate the oven.
Service wiring is not complete. Contact your authorized Servicer for assistance.
Oven smokes excessively during broiling.
Control(s) not set properly. Follow instructions under Setting Surface & Oven Controls.
Make sure oven door is opened to broil stop position.
Meat too close to the element. Reposition the rack to provide proper clearance between
the meat and the element. Preheat broil element for searing.
Drip bowls are pitting or rusting.
Foods with acids, such as tomatoes, if allowed to stand in/on bowls will cause corrosion.
Remove and wash drip bowls as soon as possible after a spillover
Normal environment. Houses along sea coast are exposed to salt air. Protect bowls as
much as possible from direct exposure to salt air.
Drip bowls turning color or distorted.
Bottom surface of cookware extends beyond surface elements and touches cooktop
surface. This can cause high enough temperatures to discolor the drip bowls. DO NOT
use cookware of this type. Pan sizes should be matched to the size of the element.
Replacement bowls may be purchased from your authorized Servicer.
Poor baking results.
Many factors affect baking results. Make sure the proper rack position is used. Center
food in the oven and space pans to allow air to circulate. Allow the oven to preheat to
the set temperature before placing food in the oven. Try adjusting the recipe's
recommended temperature or baking time.
Flames inside oven or smoking from vent.
Your oven will most likely smoke after a spillover has occurred ... this is normal, especially
for high oven temperatures, pie spillovers or large amounts of grease on oven bottom.
Wipe up excessive spillovers immediately. For oven fire, see Setting Surface & Oven
Controls section in this Use & Care Manual.
