We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety messages. This is the safety alert symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others. All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word "DANGER" or "WARNING." These words mean: You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately follow instructions. You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow instructions. All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed. The range will not tip during normal use. However, the range can tip if you apply too much force or weight to the open door without having the anti-tip bracket fastened down properly. Tip Over Hazard A child or adult can tip the range and be killed. Connect anti-tip bracket to rear range foot. Reconnect the anti-tip bracket, if the range is moved. See the installation instructions for details. Failure to follow these instructions Anti-Tip Bracket can result in death or serious burns to children and adults. Making sure the anti-tip bracket is installed: • Slide range forward. • Look for the anti-tip bracket securely attached to floor. • Slide range back so rear range foot is under anti-tip bracket. Range Foot The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn of potential exposure to such substances. WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. This appliance can cause low-level exposure to some of the substances monoxide, and toluene. listed, including benzene, formaldehyde, carbon iMPORTANT SAFETY iNSTRUCTiONS WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to persons, or damage when using the range, follow basic precautions, including the following:  WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED BY PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP DEVICES. TO CHECK IF THE DEVICES ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE RANGE FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET SECURELY ATTACHED TO FLOOR, 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.  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.  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. For self-cleaning  Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat Settings - Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.  Clean Only Parts Listed in Manual.  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. 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.  Before Self-Cleaning the Oven - Remove broiler pan and other utensils. For units with ventilating hood -  Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently - Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.  When flambeing foods under the hood, turn the fan on.

Burner bowls, when clean, reflect heat back to the cookware. They also help catch spills. Cookware should not extend more than _/2"(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. For more information, see the "General Cleaning" section. Turn off all controls when done cooking. NOTE: Before removing or replacing coil elements and burner bowls, make sure they are cool and the control knobs are in the Off position. Failure to do so can result in death or fire. To Remove: Fire Hazard 1. Push in the edge of coil element toward the receptacle. Then lift it enough to clear the burner bowl. 2. Pull the coil element straight away from the receptacle. Lift out the burner bowl. The control knobs can be set to anywhere between HI and LO. Push in and turn to setting. On some models, the surface cooking area Iocator shows which element is turned on. Use the following chart as a guide when setting heat levels. SETTING RECOMMENDED USE HI • Start food cooking. • Bring liquid to a boil. Medium High 6-8 • Hold a rapid boil. • Quickly brown or sear food. Medium 5 • Maintain a slow boil. • Fry or saute foods. Medium Low 2-4 • Cook soups, sauces and gravies. • Stew or steam food. 3. LO • Simmer. • Keep food warm. To Replace: 1. Line up openings in the burner bowl with the coil element receptacle. • Melt chocolate or butter. I REMEMBER: When range is in use or (on some models) during the Self-Cleaning cycle, the entire cooktop area may become hot. NOTE: On self-cleaning models, the cooktop will not operate when the range is in a self-cleaning mode. \ I 2.

Donotdropthecooktop. Damage couldoccurtothefinishand thecooktop frame.Formoreinformation, seethe"General Cleaning" section. To Lift: Lift the cooktop by both front corners until the supports lock into place. 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 well-fitting lid, and the material should be of medium-to-heavy thickness. Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop or grates. 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 cooktop or 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. To Replace: 1. Lift the cooktop from both sides while pressing the support rods back to unlock them. 2. Slowly lower the cooktop into place. When canning for long periods, alternate the use of surface cooking areas, elements or surface burners between batches. This allows time for the most recently used areas to cool. • • • 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 • Heats slowly, but unevenly. • Ideal results on low to medium heat settings. Copper • Heats very quickly and evenly. Earthenware • Follow manufacturer's • Use on low heat settings. Porcelain enamel-onsteel or cast iron • See stainless steel or cast iron. Stainless • Heats quickly, but unevenly. • A core or base of aluminum or copper on stainless steel provides even heating. Cast iron Center the canner on the grate or largest surface cooking area or element. On electric cooktops, canners should not extend more than 1/2"(1.3 cm) beyond the surface cooking area or element. Do not place canner on 2 surface cooking areas, elements or surface burners at the same time. On ceramic glass models, use only flat-bottomed Ceramic or Ceramic glass canners. On coil element models, the installation of a Canning Unit Kit is recommended. If a kit is not installed, the life of the coil element will be shortened. See "Assistance or Service" for instructions on how to order. • Use the following chart as a guide for cookware material characteristics. For more information, contact your local agricultural department. Companies that manufacture home canning products can also offer assistance. steel instructions. instructions. OVENUSE Odors and smoke are normal when the oven is used the first few times, or when it is heavily soiled. IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off. Exposure to the fumes may result in death to certain birds. Always move birds to another closed and wellventilated room. IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the porcelain finish, do not place food or bakeware directly on the oven door or bottom. RACKS NOTES: IMPORTANT: Do not use a thermometer to measure oven temperature because opening the oven door and element or burner cycling may give incorrect readings. The oven provides accurate temperatures; however, it may cook faster or slower than your previous oven, so the temperature calibration can be adjusted. It can be changed in Fahrenheit or Celsius. • 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, then lift out. Use the following illustration and chart as a guide. A minus sign means the oven will be cooler by the displayed amount. The absence of a minus sign means the oven will be warmer by the displayed amount. Use the following chart as a guide.
