However, as with any appliance, there are specific installation and safety precautions which must be followed to ensure safe and satisfactory operation. FOR YOUR SAFETY l DO NOT STORE OR USE GASOLINE OR OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND LIQUIDS IN THE VICINITY OF THIS OR ANY OTHER APPLIANCE. THE FUMES CAN CREATE A FIRE HAZARD OR EXPLOSION. l FOR YOUR SAFETY l IF YOU SMELL GAS: 1. OPEN WINDOWS. 2. DON’T TOUCH ELECTRICAL SWITCHES. 3. EXTINGUISH ANY OPEN FLAMES. 4. IMMEDIATELY CALL YOUR GAS SUPPLIER. l IMPROPER INSTALLATION, ADJUSTMENT, ALTERATION, SERVICE OR MAINTENANCE CAN CAUSE INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE. REFER TO THIS MANUAL. FOR ASSISTANCE OR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION CONSULT A QUALIFIED INSTALLER, SERVICE AGENCY, MANUFACTURER (DEALER) OR THE GAS SUPPLIER. - IMPORTANT TO THE INSTALLER: PLEASE LEAVE THIS INSTRUCTION BOOK WITH THE UNIT. TO THE CONSUMER: PLEASE READ AND KEEP THIS BOOK FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. Important Safety Instructions Continued l Install or locate the range only in accordance with the provided Installation Instructions. It is recommended that the range be installed by a qualified installer. The range must be properly connected to the proper gas supply and checked for leaks. The range must also be properly connected to electrical supply and grounded. l l l l l l l l 4 To reduce the risk of tipping of the appliance, the appliance must be secured by properly installed antitip bracket(s). To check if the bracket(s) is installed properly, shine a flashlight under range toward rear corners and verify that anti-tip bracket(s) is engaged. See Installation Instructions for further details. Gas fuels and combustion can result in potential exposure to chemicals known to cause cancer or reproductive harm. For example, benzene is a chemical which is a part of the gas supplied to the range. It is consumed in the flame during combustion. However, exposure to a small amount of benzene is possible if a gas leak occurs. Formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and soot are by-products of incomplete combustion. Properly adjusted burners with a bluish rather than a yellow flame will minimize incomplete combustion. Do not operate the range if it is not working properly, or if it has been damaged. Do not use the range for warming or heating the room. Persons could be burned or injured, or a fire could start. l l l Do not attempt to light the oven burner during a power failure. Personal injury could result. Use the range only for its intended use as described in this manual. Do not wear loose or hanging garments when using the range. They could ignite if they touch a hot surface burner and you could be burned. Do not touch surface burners, areas near burners or interior surfaces of oven. Areas near surface burners and interior surfaces of an oven become hot enough to cause burns. During use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface burners, areas near surface burners or interior surfaces of oven. Other surfaces of the range may become hot enough to cause burns; such as, the oven vent opening, the surface near the vent opening, the cooktop, the oven door and window. Make sure the utensils you use are large enough to contain food and avoid boil-overs and spill-overs. Heavy splattering or spill-overs left on a range can ignite and burn you. Pan size is especially important in deep fat frying. Turn pan handles inward, but not over other surface burners. This will help reduce the chance of burns, igniting of flammable materials, and spills due to bumping of the pan. Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders on surface burners may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch surface burners. Do not use a towel or bulky cloth for a potholder. They could catch on fire. l l l l l l l l l Check to be sure glass cooking utensils are safe for use on the range. Only certain types of glass, glass-ceramic, ceramic, earthenware or other glazed utensils are suitable for ranges without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Do not use decorative covers or trivets over the surface burners. Do not heat unopened containers. They could explode. The hot contents could cause burns and container particles could cause injury. Grease is flammable and should be handled carefully. Let fat cool before attempting to handle it. Do not allow grease to collect around cooktop or in vents. Wipe spillovers immediately. 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. Never leave surface burners unattended at high heat settings. A boil-over could result and cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite. Make sure surface burners are off when you are finished, and when you are not watching. Use care when opening oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food. Always position oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. Do not store flammable materials on or near the range. They could explode or burn. l Do not store things children might want above the range. Children could be burned or injured while climbing on it. l 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. 9 Never use a match or other flame to look for a gas leak. Explosion and injury could result. . Know where your main gas shut off valve is located. l Keep range vents unobstructed. l Clean your range regularly. See care and cleaning instructions in this manual. l Be sure all range parts are cool before cleaning. l Do not clean door heat seal. It is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the seal. Clean only parts recommended in this Use and Care Guide. l Do not use oven cleaners on continuous-cleaning ovens. No commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind should be used in or around any part of the oven. l 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. l Disconnect the electrical supply before servicing the range. l - SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS L - Using Your Range Usingthe surface burners Surface burner marker Control knobs must be pushed in, then turned to the LITE position.
