ImportantSafetyInstructions
Gas ranges have been thoroughly tested for safe and efficient operation. 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

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
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.

If YouNeedServiceOrAssistance..
.
We suggestyou follow
these steps:
1. Before calling for assistance...
Performance problems often result from
little things you can find and fix without
tools of any kind.
If nothing
operates:
Is the gas turned on?
l Is the power supply cord plugged into
a live circuit with the proper voltage?
(See installation Instructions.)
l Have you checked your home’s main
fuses or circuit breaker box?
l Have instructions in this book been
followed?
. Is the control knob set in the correct
position?
l Is the flow of combustion
and/or
ventilation air to the unit obstructed?
Do not obstruct airflow to and
around unit.
l Recheck suspected
defect.
l
If burner fails to light:
l Is the range connected to electrical
power?
l Have you checked your home’s main
fuses or circuit breaker box?
l Are burner ports clogged?
See
page 20.
If burner flames are uneven:
l Are burner ports clogged?
See
page 20.
If burner flames lift off ports, are
yellow, or are noisy when turned off:
l The air/gas mixture may be incorrect.
(Call for service.)
If burner makes a popping noise
when ON:
l Is the burner wet from washing?
Let
dry.
If control knob(s) will not turn:
l Did you push in before trying to turn?
If soil is visible on continuouscleaning oven finish:
l The special finish is designed to
gradually reduce oven soil during
normal baking or roasting. It is not
designed to keep your oven spotless,
only presentably clean. If you broil
often, you may see oven soil. Follow
hand cleaning tips on page 18.
l The door is cooler than the oven
walls. Soil will be more visible on the
door than other areas in the oven.
See hand cleaning tips on page 18.
l Sugar and starchy spills may leave
stains. See page 18 for hand cleaning
tips. Use foil on lower rack to catch
these spills.
If cooking results aren’t what you
expected:
l Is the range level?
l Does the oven temperature
seem too
low or too high? See page 10.
l If needed, have you preheated
the
oven as the recipe calls for?
l Does the flame size fit the cooking
utensil being used? (See the Cooking
Guide.)
l Are you following a tested recipe from
a reliable source?
l Are you using pans recommended
in
the Cooking Guide?
l If baking, have you allowed 1 l/2 to 2
inches (4-5 cm) on all sides of the
pans for air circulation?
l Are the pans the size called for in the
recipe?
l Do the cooking utensils have smooth,
flat bottoms and fit the surface
burners being used?
See the Cooking Guide for more
information on cooking problems and
how to solve them.
