IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
* Keep the hood and grease filters clean to
maintain good venting and to avoid grease fires,
Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
h’,
c Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
●
e
Turn the controls off. Smother a
flaming pan on a surface unit by covering the
pan completely with a well-fitting lid, cookie
sheet or flat tray. Use a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
Flaming grease outside a pan can be put out
by covering it with baking soda or, if available,
by using a multi-purpose dry chemical or foamtype fire extinguisher.
Flame in the oven can be smothered completely
by closing the oven door and turning the oven off
or by using a multi-purpose dry chemical or foamtype fire extinguisher.
●
Do not touch the surface units, heating
elements or interior surface of oven. These
surfaces may be hot enough to burn even though
they are dark in color. During and after use, do not
touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials
contact the surface units, areas nearby the surface
units or any interior area of the oven; allow
sufficient time for cooling, first.
Potentially hot surfaces include the cooktop and
areas facing the cooktop, the oven vent opening
and surfaces near the opening, crevices around the
oven door, the edges of the door window and
metal trim parts above the door.
Remember: The inside surface of the oven may
be hot when the door is opened.
●
When cooking pork, follow the directions
exactly and always cook the meat to an internal
temperature of at least 170”F. This assures that, in
the remote possibility that trichina may be present
in the meat, it will be killed and the meat will be
safe to eat.
Oven
Stand away from the range when opening
the oven door, Hot air or steam which escapes
can cause burns to hands, face ador eyes.
Do not heat unopened food containers.
Pressure could build up and the container
could burst, causing an injury.

Keep the oven vent duct unobstructed.
Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
Place the oven shelf in the desired position
while the oven is cool. If the shelves must be
handled when hot, do not let pot holder contact
the heating elements.
Pulling out the shelf to the shelf stop is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also a
precaution against burns from touching the hot
surfaces of the door or oven walls.
When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
Do not use your oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch on fire.
. Do not use oven for a storage area.
Items stored in an oven can ignite.
Do not leave paper products, cooking utensils
or food in the oven when not in use.
After broiling, always take the broiler pan out of
the range and clean it. Leftover grease in the broiler
pan can catch on fire the next time you use the pan. —
Never leave jars or cans of fat drippings on
or near your range.

Self-Cleaning Oven
Do not clean the door gasket. The door gasket is
●
essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not
to rub, damage or move the gasket.
Q 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.
Residue from oven cleaners will damage the inside
of the oven when the self-clean cycle is used.
●
●
Clean only parts listed in this Use and
Care Guide.
Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the
broiler pan, rack and other cookware.
●
Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven
bottom or the cooktop, except as suggested
in this guide. Improper installation of aluminum
foil may result in a risk of electric shock or fire.
●
●
Be sure to wipe up excess spillage before
starting the self-cleaning operation.
If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions, turn the
oven off and disconnect the power supply. Have it
serviced by a qualified technician.

Use proper pan size- Select
cookware having flat bottoms
large enough to cover the selected
surface unit heating element. The use of undersized
cookware will expose a portion of the surface unit
to direct contact and may result in ignition of
clothing. Proper relationship of cookware to
surface units will also improve efficiency.
To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition of
flammable materials and spillage, the handle of a
container should be turned toward the center of the
range without extending over nearby surface units.
Always turn the surface units to off before
removing cookware,
c Keep an eye on foods being fried at high or
medium high heat settings.
When flaming foods are under the hood, turn the
fan off. The fan, if operating, may spread the flame.
Foods 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.
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.
Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
Use a deep fat thermometer whenever
possible to prevent overheating fat beyond the

Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet
sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot
surface unit, be careful to avoid steam burns.
Some cleansers can produce noxious fumes if
applied to a hot surface. When the cooktop is
cool, use only Cook Top Cleaning Creme brand
cleaner to clean the cooktop.
Use care when touching the cooktop.
The glass surface of the cooktop will retain heat
after the controls have been turned off.
Never leave the surface units unattended at
high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking and
greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
o not operate the radiant surface units if
the glass is broken. Spillovers or cleaning
solution may penetrate a broken cooktop and
create a risk of electrical shock. Contact a
qualified technician immediately should your
glass cooktop become broken.
e Avoid scratching the glass cooktop surface with
sharp instruments, or’ with rings or other jewelry.
Never use the glass cooktop surface as a
cutting board.
Do not place or store items on top of the glass
cooktop surface when it is not in use.

Installing
Your range, like many other household items, is heavy and can settle
into soft floor coverings such as cushioned vinyl or carpeting. When
moving the range on this type of’ flooring, it should be installed on a l/4inch thick sheet of plywood (or similar material) as follows: When the
floor covering erz~.r at the from of the ran,ge, the area the range will rest on
should be built up with plywood to the same level or higher than the floor
covering. This will allow the range to be moved for cleaning or servicing.
Leveling
Use a 1%” open end or adjustable wrench to equally back out the 4 legs.
The flanges (rims) below the sides of the cooktop must be raised above the
top of the countertop. Carefully slide the range into its installation space.
Observe that it is clearing the countertop. Then place a spirit level or a glass
measuring cup partially filled with water on one of the oven shelves to
check for levelness. If using a spirit level, take two readings, with the level
placed diagonally first in one direction and then the other.
P.djust the 4 legs carefully. Level the range front to back and side to
side. The range legs must rest on the floor. The range must not hang from
the countertop.
.
Removing Packaging Materials
Please check your range to insure all packaging materials and protective
tape covering are removed from areas, such as the door trim, cooktop
frame, etc. before using.

~our new cooktop has a radiant glass ceramic cooktop.
If you are used to cooking with gas burners or electric
surface units, you will notice some differences when
you use the radiant cooktop.
The best types of cookware to use, plus heat-up and
“cool-down times, depend upon the type of burner or
surface unit you have.
The following chart will help you to understand the
differences between radiant cooktops and any other
type of cooktop you may have used in the past.
Type of Cooktop
Radiant
(Glass Ceramic)
Cooktop
Description
Electric coils
under a glassceramic cooktop.
How it Works
Heat travels to the glass surface and then to the cookware, so pans must be flat on
the bottom for good cooking results. The glass cooktop stays hot enough to
continue cooking after it is turned off. Remove the pan from the surface unit if
you want cooking to stop.
Induction
High frequency
induction coils
under a glass
surface.
Flattened metal
tubing containing
electric resistance
wire suspended
over a drip pan.
Solid cast iron
disk sealed to the
cooktop surface.
Pans must be made of ferrous metals (metal that attracts a magnet). Heat is
produced by a magnetic circuit between the coil and the pan. Heats up right away
and changes heat settings right away, like a gas cooktop. After turning the control
off, the giass cooktop is hot from the heat of the pan, but cooking stops right away.
Heats by direct contact with the pan and by heating the air under the pan. For best
cooking results, use good quality pans. Electric coils are more forgiving of
warped pans than radiant or solid disks. Heats up quickly but does not change
heat settings as quickly as gas or induction. Electric coils stay hot enough to
continue cookinz for a short time after they are tLlmed ~ff.
Heats by direct contact with the pan, so pans m-e=t ;n the bottom for good
cooking results. Heats up and cools down more slowly than electric coils. The
disk stays hot enough to continue cooking after it is turned off. Remove the pan
from the solid disk if you want the cooking to ston.
Flames heat the pans directly. Pan flatness is not critical to cooking results, but
pans should be well balanced. Gas burners heat the pan right away and change
heat settings right away. When you turn the control off, cooking stops right away.

Gas Burners
Regular or sealed
gas burners use
either LP gas
or natural gas.
SURFACE CONTROLS
At both OFF and HI positions, there is a slight niche
so control “clicks” at those positions; the word HI
marks the highest setting; the lowest setting is the
word LO. In a quiet kitchen you may hear slight
“clicking” sounds during cooking, indicating heat
settings selected are being maintained.
e
Switching heats to higher settings always shows a
quicker change than switching to lower settings.
How to Set the Controls
●
I
j
+
1. Push the control knob in.
2. Turn either clockwise or
counterclockwise to the desired
heat setting.
The control must be pushed in to
set only from the OFF position.
When the control is in any
position other than OFF, it may
be turned without pushing it in.
Be sure you turn the control knob
to OFF when you finish cooking.
The surface unit “on” indicator
light will glow when ANY
surface unit is on.

(continued)
Cooking Guide for Using Heat Settings
HI—Quick start for cooking; brings water to a boil.
Medium High—(Setting halfway between HI and
MED) Fast fry, pan broil; maintains a fast boil on
large amounts of food.
MED—Saute and brown; maintains a slow boil on
large amounts of food.
Medium Low—(Setting halfway between MED
and LO) Cook after starting at HI; cooks with little
water in covered pan.
LO—Steam rice, cereal; maintains serving
temperature of most foods. Slow cooking and
simmering.
Cooktop temperatures increase with the number of
surface units that are on. With 3 or 4 units turned
on, surface temperatures are high so be careful
when touching the cooktop. The four hot surface
indicator lights will remain lit after the surface units
are off until the surface is cool enough to touch.
NOTE:
At HI, Medium High settings, never leave food
unattended. Boilovers cause smoking; greasy
spillovers may catch fire.
At Medium Low, LO settings, melt chocolate
and butter on a small surface unit.
●
●
When a surface unit is turned on, the unit can be
seen glowing red within a few seconds. The red
glow will turn on and off (cycling) to maintain the
selected heat setting. With poor cookware, you will
see frequent cycling of the unit off and on. Good,
flat cookware will minimize the cycling. See the
Surface Cookware Tips section.
It is safe to place hot cookware from the oven or
surface on the glass ceramic surface when it is cool.

bottom portion of the COIL SIZE switch. Push in
and turn the control knob to the desired setting.
I
.ypes of Cookware
The following information will help you choose
cookware which will give good performance.
Stainless Steel: highly recommended
Especially good with a sandwich clad bottom. The
sandwich bottom combines the benefits of stainless
steel (appearance, durability and stability) with the
advantages of aluminum or copper (heat conduction,
even heat distribution).
Aluminum: heavy weight recommended
Good conductivity. Aluminum residues sometimes
appear as scratches on the cooktop, but can be
removed if cleaned immediately. Because of its
low melting point, thin weight aluminum should not
be used.
Copper Bottom:
Good performance, but copper may leave residues
which can appear as scratches. The residues can be
removed, as long as the cooktop is cleaned
immediately. However, do not let these pots boil dry.
Overheated metal can bond to glass cooktops.
An overheated copper pot will leave a residue that
will permanently stain the cooktop.
Porcelain/enamel:
Good performance only with a thick, flat, smooth
bottom. Avoid boiling dry, as porcelain can melt and
fuse to the. surface.
Glass-ceramic: not recommended
Poor performance. May scratch surface. Usable, but
not recommended.
Stoneware: not recommended
Poor performance. Will scratch the surface.
Cast Iron: not recommended
Poor performance. Will scratch the surface.
How to Check Pan Performance
se of correct cookware can affect the cooking
performance and cleaning of your cooktop.
The correct cookware reduces the temperature of
the cooktop surface and minimizes the chance of
spillovers burning onto the cooktop.
You must use pans with perfectly flat bottoms.
Some pans may have curved or rounded bottoms or
may be warped. If you are unsure of the flatness of
your pans you may do this quick test.
Turn your pan upside
down on the countertop,
u
place a ruler flat against
the pan surface. The
bottom of the pan and the
straight edge of- the ruler =
should fit ffush against each other all the way across.
Turn the ruler a full 360 degrees, checking for any
space between the ruler and the bottom of the pan.
Pans with rounded, curved, ridged or warped bottoms
are not recommended.
Another simple test to determine even heat distribution
across the cookware bottom is to put one inch of water
in the pan. Bring the water to a boil and observe the
location of bubbles as the water starts to boil. Good
flat cookware will have an even distribution of bubbles
over the bottom surface area of the pan. Bubbles
localized in only a portion of the bottom indicate
uneven contact of the pan to the surface unit, uneven
heat transfer or an unsuitable pan.
Use pans that match the diameter of the surface
unit. Cooking performance will not be as good if
the cookware is either smaller or larger than the
surface unit.

SURFACE COOKWARE TIPS
(continued)
Place only dry pans on the
surface units. Do not place
lids on the surface units,
particularly wet lids.
●
We recommend that. you use
only a flat-bottomed wok.
They are available at your
local retail store. The bottom
of the wok should have the
same diameter as the surface
unit to insure proper contact.
Do not use woks that have
support rings. This type of
wok w1ll not heat on radiant
*s.rfaciunits
“Some special cooking procedures require specific
cookw~re such as pr~s~ure cookers, deep fat fryers,
etc. All cookware must have flat bottoms and be the
correct size. The cookware should also be covered,
if applicable to the cooking process.
●
●
CAUTION
●
●
Never cook directly on the glass.
Always use cookware.
Always place the pan in the center of the
surface unit you are cooking on.
●
●
Do not slide cookware across the cooktop because it
can scratch the glass–the glass is scratch resistant,
not scratch proof.
Do not use the surface as a cutting board.
Deep Fat Frying
Do not overfill cookware with fat that may spill over
when adding food. Frosty foods bubble vigorously.
Watch food frying at high temperatures. Keep range
and hood clean from grease.
—
Wok Cooking
We recommend that you use only a flat-bottomed
wok. They are available at your local retail store.
—

.nning should be done on the cooktop only.
Pots that extend beyond 1 inch of the surface unit
circle are not recommended for most surface cooking.
However, when canning with water-bath or pressure
canner, larger-diameter pots may be used. This is
because boiling water temperatures (even under
uressure) are not harmful to the cooktop surfaces
surrounding the surface units.
HOWEVER, DO NOT USE LARGE DIAMETER
CANNERS OR OTHER LARGE DIAMETER POTS
FOR FRYING OR BOILING FOODS OTHER
THAN WATER. Most syrup or sauce mixtures—and
all types of frying—cook at temperatures much higher
than boiling water. Such temperatures could
eventually harm the glass cooktop surfaces.
L
Observe the Following Points in Canning
1. Be sure the canner fits over the center of the
surface unit. If your cooktop or its location
does not allow the canner to be centered on the
surface unit, use smaller diameter pots for good
canning results.
2. Flat-bottomed canners must be used. Do not use
canners with flanged or rippled bottoms (often
found in enamelware) because they don’t make
enough contact with the surface units and take
too long to boil water.
RIGHT
WRONG
Flat-bottomed canners are recommended.
CAUTION:
Safe canning requires that harmful microorganisms are destroyed and that the jars are
sealed completely. When canning foods in a waterbath canner, a gentle but steady boil must be
maintained for the required time. When canning
foods in a pressure canner, the pressure must be
maintained for the required time.
After you have adjusted the controls, it is
very important to make sure the prescribed
boil or pressure levels are maintained for the
required time.
3. When canning, use recipes and procedures from
reputable sources. Reliable recipes and procedures
are available from the manufacturer of your canner;
manufacturers of glass jars for canning, such as
Ball and Kerr; and the United States Department of
Agriculture Exteilsion Service.
4. Remember that canning is a process that generates
large amounts of steam. To avoid burns from steam
or heat, be careful when canning.
NOTE: If your house has low voltage, canning may
take longer than expected, even though directions
have been carefully followed. The process time will
be shortened by:
(1) using a pressure canner, and
(.2) starting with HOT tap water for fastest heating
of large quantities of water.
The cooktop surface units have temperature
limiters that prevent the glass cooktop from getting
too hot. If the bottom of your canner is not flat, the
surface unit can overheat, triggering the
temperature limiters to turn the unit off for a time.
This will stop the boil or reduce the pressure in
the canner.
Since you must make sure to process the canning
jars for the prescribed time, with no interruption
in processing time, you cannot can on any of
the cooktop surface units if your canner is not
flat enough.

SURFACE CLEANING
—
Glass Ceramic Cooktop Cleaning
Cleaning of glass ceramic cooktops is different from
cleaning a standard porcelain finish. To maintain and
protect the surface of your new glass ceramic cooktop
follow these basic steps.
DAILY CLEANING: Use only Cook Top Cleaning
Creme on Glass Ceramic.
For normal, light soil:
1. Rub a few drops (less is better) of Cook Top
Cleaning Creme onto the soiled area using a dry
paper towel. Wipe until all soil and creme are
removed. Frequent cleaning leaves a protective
coating which is essential in preventing scratches
and abrasions.
2. Clean the surface with Cook Top Cleaning Creme
after each use.
For heavy, burned on soil:
1. Apply a few drops of Cook Top Cleaning Creme to
the (cool) soiled area.
2. Using a dry paper towel, rub creme into the
burned on area. As with any bul”ned on spill,
this may require some effort.
3. Carefully scrape remaining soil with the razor
scraper. Hold the scraper at a 30° angle against the
ceramic surface.
4. If any soil remains, repeat the steps listed above.
For additional protection, after all soil has been
removed, polish the entire surface with the Cook
Top Cleaning Creme.
5. Buff with a dry paper towel.
NOTE:
Using a razor scraper will not damage the surface
if the 30° angle is maintained.
Be sure to use a new, sharp razor scraper.
Do not use a dull or nicked blade.
Store the razor scraper out of reach of children.
●
●
Special Care:
Sugary spillovers (such as jellies, fudge, candy
syrups) or melted plastics can cause pitting of the
surface of your cooktop (not covered by the warranty)
unless the spill is removed while still hot. Special
care should be taken when removing hot
substances. Follow these instructions carefully and
remove the soil while the spill is still hot.
1. Turn off all the surface units affected by the
spillover. Remove hot pans.
2. Wearing an oven mitt, hold the razor ~,,,<:,i~,’~, ,
scraper at a 30° angle to the cooktop -~ v + 1
and scrape the hot spill to a cool
area - ,
4
outside the surface unit.
3. With the spill in a cool area, use a dry paper towel to
remove any excess. Any spillover remaining should
be left until the surface of the cooktop has cooled.
Do not continue to use the soiled surface unit until all
of the spillover has been removed. Follow the steps
under Heavy Soil to continue the cleaning process.
General Information:
As the Cook Top Cleaning Creme cleans, it
leaves a protective coating on the cooktop surface.
This coating helps to prevent build-up of mineral
deposits (water spots) and will make future cleaning
easier. Dishwashing detergents remove this protective
coating and therefore make the cooktop more
susceptible to staining.

PRECAUTIONS
●
●
●
Most cleaners contain ammonia, chemicals and
abrasives which can damage the surface of your
cooktop. Use only the Cook Top Cleaning Creme
for proper cleaning and protection of your glass
ceramic surface.
If you slide aluminum or copper cookware across
the surface of your cooktop, they may leave metal
markings which appear as scratches. If this should
happen, use the razor scraper and Cleaning Creme to
remove these markings. Failure to remove these
residues immediately may leave permanent marks.
Water stains (mineral deposits) are removable
using Cook Top Cleaning Creme or full strength
white vinegar.
14
●
●
If pots with a thin overlay of aluminum, copper, or
enamel are allowed to boil dry, the overlay may
bond with the glass ceramic and leave a black
discoloration. This should be removed immediately
before heating again or the discoloration may be
permanent.
Use of window cleaner may leave an iridescent film
on the cooktop. Cook Top Cleaning Creme will
remove this discoloration.
Read and follow all instructions and warnings
on Cook Top Cleaning Creme labels.

USING YOUR OVEN
~fore Using Your Oven
1. Look at the controls. Be sure you understand
how to set them properly. Read over the directions
for the Oven Controls so you understand how to
use them.
2. Check the oven interior. Look at the shelves.
Take a practice run at removing and replacing them
properly, to give sure, sturdy support.
3. Read over the information and tips that follow.
4. Keep this guide handy so you can refer to it,
especially during the first weeks of using your
new range.
NOTE:
●
●
notice a “burning” or “oily” smell the first
few times you turn your oven on. This is normal in
a new oven and will disappear in a short time. To
speed the process, set a self-clean cycle for a
minimum of 3 hours. See the Operating the SelfCleaning Oven section.
A fan may automatically turn on and off to cool
internal parts. This is normal and the fan may
continue to run even after the oven is turned off.
You may
Oven Light
Use the switch on the control panel to turn the oven light on and off.
Shelf Positions
The oven has four shelf supports identified in this
illustration as A (bottom), B, C and D (top).
‘Shelf positions for cooking are suggested in the
aking, Roasting. and Broiling sections.
Oven Shelves
The shelves are designed with stop-locks so when
placed correctly on the shelf supports, they will
stop before coming completely out of the oven and
will not tilt when you are removing food from them
or placing food on them.
When placing cookware on a shelf, pull the shelf out
to the “stop” position. Place the cookware on the
shelf, then slide the shelf back into the oven. This will
eliminate reaching into the hot oven.
To remove the shelf from the oven, pLIll it toward
you, tilt the f’rent end upward, and pull it out.
To replace, place the shelf on the shelf support with
the st~p-locks (curved extension of the shelf) facing
LIp and toward the rear of the oven. Tilt up the front
and push the shelf toward the back of the oven until it
Toes past the bump on the shelf support. Then lower
.he front of the shelf, and push it all the way back.
e
BAKING
Your oven temperature is controlled very accurately
using an oven control system. We recommend that
you operate the range for a number of weeks using the
Lime given on recipes as a guide to become familiar
with your new oven’s performance. If you think an
adjustment is necessary, see the Adjust the Oven
Thermostat section. It gives easy Do It Yow-selj”
instructions on how to adjust the thermostat.
.—
NOTE: When the ov~il ge(s hot, the top iiii.i ~ i;i.i<~
surfaces of the range get hot too.
How to Set Your Range for Baking
To avoid possible burns, place shelves in the correct
position before you turn the oven on.
1. Press the BAKE pad.
2. Press the INCREASE or DECREASE pad until the
desired temperature is displayed.
The oven will start automatically. The word “ON”
and “ 100°” will be displayed. As the oven heats up,
the display uill show the changing temperature.
When the oven reaches the temperature you set, a
tone will sound.
3. Press the CLEAR/OFF pad when baking is finished
and then remove the food from the oven.
NOTE: A fan may automatically turn on and off to
coo] internal parts. This is normal, and the fan may
continue to run after the oven is turned off.
To change the oven temperature during BAKE
cycle, press the BAKE pad and then the INCREASE
or DECREASE pad to get the new temperature.
J
Oven Shelves
Arrange the oven
shelf or shelves in
the desired locations
while the oven is
cool. The correct
shelf position
depends on the kind
of food and the
browning desired.
As a general rule,
place-most foods in the middle of the oven, on either
shelf positions B or C. See the chart for suggested
shelf positions.

Preheating
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it.
Preheat means bringing the oven up to the specified
temperature before putting the food in the oven.
To preheat, set the oven at the correct temperature—
selecting a higher temperature does not shorten
preheat time.
18
Preheating is necessary for good results when baking
cakes, cookies, pastry and breads. For most casseroles
and roasts, preheating is not necessary. For ovens
without a preheat indicator light or tone, preheat
10 minutes. After the oven is preheated, place the
food in the oven as quickly as possible to pre~ent
heat from escaping.
—
Jaking Pans
Use the proper baking pan. The type of finish on
the pan determines the amount of browning that
will occur.
Dark, rough or dull pans absorb heat resulting in a
browner, crisper crust. Use this type for pies.
“ Shiny, bright and smooth pans reflect heat, resulting
in a lighter, more delicate browning. Cakes and
cookies require this type of pan.
Glass baking dishes absorb heat. When baking in
glass baking dishes, the temperature may need to be
reduced by 25”F.
●
●
Pan Placement
For even cooking and proper browning, there must be
enough room for air circulation in the oven. Baking
results will be better if baking pans are centered as
much as possible rather than being placed to the front
or to the back of the oven.
Pans should not touch each other or the walls of the
oven. Allow 1- to 1 X-inch space between pans as well
as from the back of the oven, the door and the sides.
If you use two shelves, stagger the pans so one is not
directly above the other.
Baking Guides
When using prepared baking mixes, follow package recipe or instructions
for the best baking results.
Cookies
When baking cookies, flat cookie sheets (without
sides) produce better-looking cookies. Cookies baked
n a jelly roll pan (short sides all around) may have
darker edges and pale or light browning may occur.
Do not use a cookie sheet so large that it touches the
walls or the door of the oven. Never entirely cover
a shelf with a large cookie sheet.
For best results, use only one cookie sheet in the oven
at a time.
Pies
Cakes
For best results, bake pies in dark, rough or dull pans
to produce a browner, crisper crust. Frozen pies in foil
pans should be placed on an aluminum cookie sheet
for baking since the shiny foil pan reflects heat away
from. the pie crust; the cookie sheet helps retain it.
When baking cakes, warped or bent pans will cause
uneven baking results and poorly shaped products.
A cake baked in a pan larger than the recipe
recommends will usually be crisper, thinner and drier
than it should be. If baked in a pan smaller than
recommended, it may be undercooked and batter may
overflow. Check the recipe to make sure the pan size
used is the one recommended.
(continued next page)
19
BAKING
(continued)
.
Aluminum Foil
Never entirely cover a shelf with aluminum foil.
This will disturb the heat circulation and result in
poor baking. A smaller sheet of foil may be used
to catch a spillover by placing it on a lower shelf
several inches below the food.
Don’t Peek
Set the timer for the estimated cooking time and do
not open the door to look at your food. Most recipes
provide minimum and maximum baking times such
as “bake 30-40 minutes.”
DO NOT open the door to check until the minimum
time. Opening the oven door frequently during
cooking allows heat to escape and makes baking
times longer. Your baking results may also be affected.
TIMED BAKING
How to Time Bake
The oven control allows you to turn the oven on or
off automatically at specific times that you set.
NOTE: Before beginning make sure the clock shows
the correct time of day.
To set the clock, first press the CLOCK pad. Press
the INCREASE or DECREASE pad until the correct
time of day is displayed.
How to Set Immediate Start and Automatic Stop
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the
correct position before you turn the oven on.
The oven will turn on immediately and cook for a
selected length of time. At the end of Cook Time,
the oven will turn off automatically.
1. Press the COOK TIME pad.
NOTE: If your recipe requires preheating, you may
need to add additional time to the length of
the Cook Time.
2. Press the INCREASE pad until the desired length
of baking time appears in the display.
3. Press the BAKE pad.
4. Press the INCREASE or DECREASE pad until the
desired temperature is displayed. An attention tone
will sound if step 3 is not done.
The oven will start automatically. The word “ON”
and “ 100°” will be displayed. The Cook Time will
begin to count down. As the oven heats up, the
display will show the changing temperature.
When the oven reaches the temperature you set,
a tone will sound. The oven will continue to cook
for the programmed amount of time, then shut off
automatically.
5. Press the CLEAWOFF pad to clear the display
if necessary. Remove the food from the oven.
Remember, even though the oven shuts off
automatically, foods continue cooking after the
controls are off.
NOTE:
Foods that spoil easily, such as milk, eggs, fish,
stuffings, poultry and pork, should not be allowed to
sit for more than one hour before or after cooking.
Room temperature promotes the growth of harmful
bacteria. Be sure that the oven light is off because heat
from the bulb will speed harmful bacteria growth.
A fan may automatically turn on and off to cool
internal parts. This is normal, and the fan may
continue to run after the oven is turned off.

Questions and Answers
Q. Is it necessary to check for doneness with
a meat thermometer?
A. Checking the finished internal temperature at the
completion of cooking time is recommended.
Temperatures are shown in the Roasting Guide
section. For roasts over 8 pounds, check with
thermometer at half-hour intervals after half the
cooking time has passed.
Q. Why is my roast crumbling when I try to
carve it?
A. Roasts are easier to slice if allowed to cool 10 to
20 minutes after removing them from the oven.
Be sure to cut across the grain of the meat.
Q. Do I need to preheat my oven each time I cook
a roast or poultry?
A. It is not necessary to preheat your oven.
Q. When buying a roast, are there any special tips
that would help me cook it more evenly?
A. Yes. Buy a roast as even in thickness as possible,
or buy rolled roasts.
Q. Can I seal the sides of my foil “tent” when
roasting a turkey?
A. Sealing the foil will steam the meat. Leaving
it unsealed allows the air to circulate and brown
the meat.

.;-T[le U. S. Depwlnent of Agriculture says “Rare beef is popular, but you should know that cooking it to only 140”F. means some
food poisoning organisms may survive.” (Source: Safe Food Book. Your Kitchen Guide. USDA Rev. June 1985. )

roiling is cooking food by intense radiant heat
from the upper broil element in the oven. Most
fish and tender cuts of meat can be broiled. Follow
these directions to keep spattering and smoking to
a minimum.
Turn the food only once during broiling. Time the
foods for the first side according to the Broiling Guide.
Turn the food, then use the times given for the second
side as a guide to the preferred doneness.
1. If the meat has fat or gristle around the edge, cut
vertical slashes through both about 2 inches apart.
If’ desired, the fat may be trimmed, leaving a layer
about 1/8 inch thick.
2. Place the meat on the broiler rack in the broiler pan.
Always use the rack so the fat drips into the broiler
pan; otherwise the juices may become hot enough
to catch on fire.
3. Position a flat shelf on recommended shelf
position as suggested in the Broiling Guide.
Most broiling is done on C position, but if your
range is connected to 208 volts, you may wish
to use a higher position.
4. Leave the door open to the broil stop position.
The door stays open by itself, yet the proper
temperature is maintained in the oven.
5. Press the BROIL pad.
6. Press the INCREASE pad once for LO Broil or
twice for HI Broil. To change from HI Broil to LO
Broil, press the BROIL pad then press the
DECREASE pad once.
7. When broiling is finished press the CLEAR/OFF
pad. Serve the food immediately, and leave the
pan outside the oven to cool during the meal for
easiest cleaning.
NOTE: A fan may automatically turn on and off to
cool internal parts. This is normal, and the fan may
continue to run after the oven is turned off.
‘se of Aluminum Foil
You can use aluminum foil to line
your broiler pan and broiler rack.
However, you must mold the foil
tightly to the rack and cut slits in it
just like the rack.
Without the slits, the foil will
prevent fat and meat juices from
draining to the broiler pan. The
juices could become hot enough to
catch on fire. If you do not cut the
slits, you are frying, not broiling.
Questions and Answers
Q. Why are my meats not turning out as brown as
they should?
A. In some areas, the power (voltage) to the range
may be low. In these cases, preheat the broil
element for 10 minutes before placing the broiler
pan with food in the oven. Check to see if you are
using the recommended shelf position. Broil for
the longest period of time indicated in the Broiling
Guide. Turn the food only once during broiling.
You may also use a higher shelf position.
Q. Should I salt the meat before broiling?
A. No. Salt draws out the juices and allows them to
evaporate. Always salt after cooking. Turn the
meat with tongs; piercing the meat with a fork also
allows the juices to escape. When broiling poultry
or fish. brush each side often with butter.
Q. When broiling, is it necessary to always use a
rack in the pan?
A. Yes. Using the rack suspends the meat over the
pan. As the meat cooks, the juices fall into the
pan, thus keeping the meat drier. Juices are
protected by the rack and stay cooler, thus
preventing excessive spatter and smoking.
Q. Do I need to grease my broiler rack to prevent
meat from sticking?
A. No. The broiler rack is designed to reflect broiler
heat, thus keeping the surface cool enough to
prevent meat from sticking to the surface.
However, spraying the broiler rack lightly with a
vegetable cooking spray before cooking will make
clean-up easier.

BROILING GUIDE
●
●
●
●
Always use the broiler pan and rack that comes with
your oven. It is designed to minimize smoking and
spattering by trapping the juices in the shielded
lower part of the pan.
The oven door should be open to the broil
stop position.
For steaks and chops, slash fat evenly around the
outside edges of the meat. To slash, cut crosswise
through the outer fat surface just to the edge of the
meat. Use tongs to turn the meat over to prevent
piercing the meat and losing the juices.
If desired, marinate meats or chicken before
broiling, or brush with barbecue sauce last 5 to
10 minutes only.

When arranging food on the pan, do not let fatty
edges hang over the sides because dripping fat could
soil the oven bottom.
The broiler does not need to be preheated. However,
for very thin foods, or to increase browning, preheat
if desired.
Use LO Broil to cook foods such as poultry or thick
pork chops thoroughly without over-browning them.
Frozen steaks can be broiled by positioning the oven
shelf at next lowest shelf position and increasing
cooking time given in this guide 1 X times per side.
If your range is connected to 208 volts, rare steaks
may be broiled by preheating the broiler and
positioning the oven shelf one position higher.

OPERATING THE SELF-CLEANING OVEN
Normal Cleanlng Time 3 hours
w
before a Clean Cycle
The range must be completely cool in order to set
the self-clean cycle.
1. Remove the broiler pan, broiler rack, all cookware
and any aluminum foil from the oven—they can’t
withstand the high cleaning temperatures.
NOTE: The oven shelves may be cleaned in the
self-cleaning oven. However, they will darken, lose
their luster and become hard to slide.
2. Wipe up heavy soil on the oven bottom. If you
use soap, rinse thoroughly before self-cleaning
to prevent staining.

3. Clean spatters or soil on the oven front frame and
the oven door outside the gasket with a dampened
cloth. The oven front frame and the oven door
outside the gasket do not get cleaned by the selfclean cycle. On these areas, use detergent and hot
water or a soap-filled steel wool pad. Rinse well
with a vinegar and water solution. This will help
prevent a brown residue from forming when the
oven is heated. Buff these areas with a dry cloth.
Do not clean the gasket.
Clean the top, sides and outside front of the oven
door with soap and water. Do not use abrasives or
oven cleaners.
Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in place.
Do not rub or clean the door gasket—
the fiberglass material of the gasket has an
extremely low resistance to abrasion. An intact
and well-fitting oven door gasket is essential for
energy-efficient oven operation and good baking
results. If you notice the gasket becoming worn,
frayed or damaged in any way or if it has become
displaced on the door, you should have it replaced.
Do not let water run down through openings in
the top of the door. To help prevent water from
getting in these slots when cleaning, open the door
as far as it will go.
4. Close the oven door and make sure the oven light
is off. If the oven light is not turned off, the life
of the bulb will be shortened or it may burn out
immediately. The door latches automatically after
the clean cycle is set.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners or oven
protectors in or near the self-cleaning oven.
A combination of any of these products plus the
high clean-cycle temperature may damage the
porcelain finish of the oven.

Questions and Answers
Q. If my oven clock is not set to the correct time of
day, can I still self-clean my oven?
A. If the clock is not set to the correct time of day
you will not be able to set a delay clean to end at a
specific time.
Q. Can I use commercial oven cleaners on any part
of my self-cleaning oven?
A. No cleaners or coatings should be used around
any part of this oven. If you do use them and do
not thoroughly rinse the oven with water, wiping it
absolutely clean afterwards, the residue can scar
the oven surface and damage metal parts the next
time the oven is automatically cleaned.
Q. What should I do if excessive smoking occurs
during cleaning?
A. This is caused by excessive soil. Turn the oven off.
Open the windows to rid the room of smoke. Wait
until the oven has cooled and the word “LOCK” is
off in the display. Wipe up the excess soil and reset
the clean cycle.
Q. Is the “crackling” or “popping” sound I hear
‘ during cleaning-normal?- - A. Yes. This is the sound of the metal heating
and cooling during both the cooking and
cleaning functions.
Q. Should there be any odor during the cleaning?
A. Yes, there will be an odor during the first few
cleanings. Failure to wipe out excessive soil might
also cause a strong odor when cleaning.
Q. What causes the hair-like lines on the enameled
surface of my oven?
A. This is a normal condition, resulting from heating
and cooling during cleaning. These lines do not
affect how your oven performs.
Q. Why do I have ash left in my oven after
cleaning?
A. Some types of soil will leave a deposit which
is ash. It can be removed with a damp sponge
or cloth.
Q. My oven shelves do not slide easily. What is
the matter?
A. After many cleanings, oven shelves may become
so clean they do not slide easily. To make shelves
slide more easily, after each self-cleaning function
dampen fingers with a small amount of cooking oil
and rub lightly over sides of shelf where they
contact shelf supports.
Q. My oven shelves have become gray after the
self-clean cycle. Is this normal?
A. Yes. After the self-clean cycle, the shelves may
lose some luster and change to a deep gray color.
Q. Can I cook food on the cooktop while the oven
is self-cleaning?
A. Yes. While the oven is self-cleaning, you can use
the cooktop just as you normally do.

~r, SURE ELECTRICAL POWER IS
OFF BEFORE CLEANING ANY PART
OF THE RANGE.
Proper care and cleaning are important so your radiant
cooktop will give you efficient and satisfactory
service. If soil, mineral deposits from evaporated
water spills or metal rub-off from aluminum
cookware is not removed, it will burn on the glass
cooktop surface and cause permanent discoloration.
Follow these directions carefully in caring for your
cooktop to assure safe and proper maintenance.
Be sure that the surface unit control knobs are
turned off and that the entire cooktop is cool
before cleaning. Do not use a cooktop cleaner on a
hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your
health and can chemically attack the glass surface.
Control Panel and Knobs
It’s a good idea to wipe the control panel after each
use. Clean with mild soap and water or vinegar and
water, rinse with clean water and polish dry with a
soft cloth.
Do not use abrasive cleansers, strong liquid
cleansers, plastic scouring pads or oven cleansers
on the control panel—they will damage the finish.
A 50/50 solution of vinegar and hot water solution
works well.
The control knobs may be removed for easier
cleaning.
—
}re removing the knobs for cleaning, please
.: that the knobs on the left side and the knobs on
the right side are on the proper OFF position. When
replacing the knobs, check the OFF position to insure
proper placement.
The knob stem has a groove in each side. The groove
on one side has a spring clip. The other groove is
clear (see illustration). When removing the knob, it
may be helpful to slip a thin cloth (such as a
handkerchief) or a piece of string under and around
the knob edge and pull up. Check the inside of the
knob and find the molded rib.
Wash the knobs in soap and water or a vinegar and
hot water solution but do not soak.
Replace the knob by fitting the molded rib inside the
knob into the clear groove on the stem.
Clear Groove

Oven Shelves
Clean the shelves with an abrasive cleanser or
steel wool. After cleaning, rinse the shelves with
clean water and dry with a clean cloth.
NOTE: The oven shelves may also be cleaned in
the self-cleaning oven. However, the shelves may
darken in color, lose their luster and become hard to
slide if cleaned during the self-cleaning cycle.
“Sure Grip” Handle
The soft door handle is easy to keep clean. Soil will easily wash off
w+h soap and water or a non-abrasive all-purpose cleaner. Avoid using
y-duty all-purpose cleaners and detergents, as they may contain
chemicals which might harm the sure grip handle.

Broiler Pan and Rack
After broiling, remove the broiler pan from the oven.
Remove the rack from the pan. Carefully pour out
grease from the pan into a proper container. Wash and
rinse the broiler pan and rack in hot water with a
soap-filled or plastic scouring pad.
If food has burned on, sprinkle the rack with
detergent while hot and cover with wet paper towels
or a dishcloth. Soaking the pan will remove burned
on foods.
The broiler pan and rack may be cleaned with a
commercial oven cleaner.
lnnrl rmmm
Both the broiler pan and rack can also be cleaned in
the dishwasher.
Do not clean the broiler pan or rack in the selfcleaning oven.
Do not store a soiled broiler pan and rack anywhere
in the range.
Lift-Off Oven Door
The oven door is removable,
but it is heavy. You may need
help removing and replacing
the door. Do not lift the door by
the handle. This can cause the
glass to break or can cause
damage to the door.
To remove the door, open it a
few inches to the special stop
position that will hold the door
open. Grasp firmly on each side
and lift the door straight up and
off the hinges.
NOTE:
Be careful not to place hands between the hinge
and the oven door frame as the hinge could snap
back and pinch fingers.
* While working in the oven area, cover the hinges
with towels or empty paper towel rolls to prevent
pinched fingers and chipping the porcelain enamel
on the frame.
To replace the door, make sure the hinges are in the
special stop position. Position the slots in the bottom
of the door squarely over the hinges. Then lower the
door slowly and evenly over both hinges at the same
time. [f hinges snap back against the oven frame, pull
them back out.
●
TO CLEAN THE DOOR:
Inside of the door:
Because the area inside the gasket is cleaned during
the self clean cycle, you do not need to clean this by
hand. Any soap left on the liner causes additional
stains when the oven is heated.
The area outside the gasket can be cleaned with a
—
scouring pad.
Do not rub or clean the door gasket—the fiberglass
material of the gasket has an extremely low
resistance to abrasion. An intact and well-fitting
oven door gtisket is essential for energy-efficient
oven operation and good baking results. If you
notice the gasket becoming worn, frayed or damaged
in any way or if it has become displaced on the door,
you should have it replaced.
NOTE: The gasket is designed with a gap at the
bottom to allow for proper air circulation.

1. Before placing range in the counter, notice the
location of the stability bracket which is already
attached to the back of the range. This location
should work for most installations. However, it may
be more convenient to hook the stability chain to
the unit when the stability bracket is attached to the
upper set of holes in the back of range. See Fig. A.
The upper level set of holes are intended for use with
a backsplash kit. If the backsplash is not being used,
make sure that there are no structural supports for
the countertop which will interfere with the stability
bracket when located in the upper set of holes.

SURFACE UNITS DO
NOT WORK PROPERLY
.—
You must use pans which are absolutely flat. If light can be seen between the
pan bottom and a straight edge, the surface units will not transfer heat properly.
Pan bottoms should closely match the diameter of the surface unit selected.
The glass cooktop surfaces may seem hotter than you are used to.
This is normal. Make sure flat-bottomed pans are used.
Improper cookware being used. Pan bottoms should be flat, fairly heavy weight
and the same diameter as the surface unit selected.
Difficulty may be in the main distribution panel of your house, caused by a
blown oven-circuit fuse, a tripped oven-circuit breaker, the main fuse or the
main circuit breaker, depending on the nature of the power supply. If a circuit
breaker is involved, reset it. If the control box uses fuses, the oven fuse
(a cartridge-type) should be changed, BUT ONLY BY SOMEONE FAMILIAR
WITH ELECTRICAL CIRCUITS. If after performing one of these procedures,
the fuse blows or circuit breaker trips again, call for service.
NOTE: Apartment tenants or condominium owners should ask their building
management to perform this check before calling for service.
Cooktop surface unit controls are not properly set, or the wrong control knob
is set for the surface unit YOU are using.

Incorrect cleaning methods have been used, cookware with rough bottoms
has been used, or coarse particles (salt or sand) were between the cookware
and the surface of the cooktop. Use recommended cleaning procedures, be sure
cookware bottoms and cookware are clean before use, and use cookware with
smooth bottoms. Tiny scratches are not removable but will become less visible
in time as a result of cleaning.
Do not slide aluminum cookware across the surface. Use recommended
cleaning procedure to remove marks.
Incorrect cleaning materials have been used, encrusted boilovers or grease
spatters remain on the surface. Use a razor scraper and recommended
cleaning procedure.
Use a razor scraper and recommended cleaning procedure.
