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 birth defects or other reproductive
harm, and requires businesses to warn customers
of potential exposure to such substances.
The fiberglass insulatio~ in self-clean ovens
gives off a very small amount of carbon
monoxide during the cleaning cycle. Exposure
can be minimized by venting with an open
window or using a ventilation fan or hood.
ylu~~scent light bulbs contain mercury.
If your model has a surface light, you must
recycle the fluorescent light bulb according to
local, state and federal codes.

“~ . Do
Never pick up a flaming pan.
e Smother flaming pan on surface unit
by covering pan completely with well-fitting lid,
cookie sheet or flat tray, or if available, use dry
chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
Flaming grease outside a pan can be put out by
covering with baking soda or, if available, a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
Flame in the oven can be smothered completely
by closing the oven door and turning the oven
control to OFF or use a dry chemical or foamtype fire extinguisher.
Do not touch the surface units, the heating
elements or the interior surface of the 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,
areas facing the cooktop, oven vent opening,
surfaces near the opening, crevices around the
oven door 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.

Surface Cooking Units
Use proper pan size- Select
‘.&+, cookware having flat bottoms large
lrenough to cover the 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 unit
will also improve efficiency,
Never leave the surface units unattended at
high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
Be sure the drip pans and the vent duct are not
covered and are in place. Their absence during
cooking could damage range parts and wiring,
Do not use aluminum foil to line the drip pans
or anywhere in the oven except as described in
this guide. Misuse could result in a shock, fire
hazard or damage to the range.
Only certain types of glass, glas<ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed containers are
suitable for cooktop service; others may break
because of the sudden change in temperature.
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 off before
removing cookware.
To avoid the possibility of a burn or electric
shock, always be certain that the controls for all
surface units are at the off position and all coils
are cool before attempting to lift or remove a unit.
Q Do not immerse or soak the removable surface
units. Do not put them in a dishwasher. Do not
self-clean the surface units in the oven.
. Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet sponge
is used to wipe spills on a hot cooktop, be careful
to avoid steam burns.
Q When flaming foods are under the hood,
turn the fan off. The fan, if operating, may spread
the flame.

Keep an eye on foods being fried at high or
medium high heat settings.
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 t6 prevent overheating fat beyond
the smoking point.

HOW DOES THIS COOKTOP COMPARE
TO YOUR OLD ONE?
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 electric coil surface units and any
other type of cooktop you may have used in the past.
Your new cooktop has electric coil surface units.
Jf you are used to cooking with gas burners or other
types of electric cooktops, you will notice some
differences when you use electric coils.
‘Ih)e of Cooktop
Description
How it Works
Electric Coil
Flattened metal
tubing containing
electric resistance
wire suspended
over a drip pan.
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 \ettings as quickly as gas or
induction. Electric coils stay hot enough to continue cooking for a short time after they we
turned off.
Radiant
(Glass Ceramic)
Cooktop
Electric coils
under a glassceramic cooktop.
Heat travels to the glass surface and then to the cookware. so ptins must be flat on the
bottom for good cooking results. The glas$ cooktop stay~ hot enough to continue cooking
after it is turned off. Remove the pan from the surface unit if jJOLI want cooking to stop.
Induction
\\\llll/,,/,
\\\
\! l//,,,+,
g$’”y~
--“+,,,l,,\\\
+,,, ,\\+\\\.-
High frequency
induction coils
under a glass
surface.
Pans must be made of ferrous metals (metal that attracts a magnet). Heat is produced h)
a magnetic circuit between the coil and the pan. Heats LIp right away and changes heat
settings right away, like a gas cooktop. After turning the control off, the glass cooktop i~
hot from the heat of the pan, but cooking ~tops right away.
Solid Disk
Solid cast iron
disk sealed to the
cooktop surface.
Heats by direct contact with the pan, so pans must be flat on the bottom for good cooking
results. Heats up and cools down more $Iowly 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 stop.
Regular or sealed
gas burners use
either LP gas
or natural gas.
Flames heat the pans directly. Pan flatne~s is not critical to cooking results. but pans
should be well balanced. Gas burners heat the pan right away and chonge heat \etti ngs
right away. When you turn the control off. cooking stops right away.

SURFACE CONTROLS
How to Set the Controls
At both OFF and HI the control “clicks” into position.
You may hear slight “clicking” sounds during
cooking, indicating the control is keeping the unit at
the heat level or power level you set.
Switching heats to higher settings always shows a
quicker change than switching to a lower setting.
Push the knob in and turn in
either direction to the heat
setting you want.
l“
Be sure you turn control to
OFF when you finish cooking.
The surface unit “on” indicator light will glow
when ANY heat on any surface unit is on.

Cookware
Use medium- or heavy-weight cookware. Aluminum
cookware conducts heat faster than other metals.
Cast-iron and coated cast-iron cookware are slow to
absorb heat, but generally cook evenly at low to
medium heat settings. Steel pans may cook unevenly
if not combined with other metals.
For best cooking results, pans should be flat on the
bottom. Match the size of the saucepan to the size of
the surface unit. The pan should no~ extend over the
edge of the surface unit more than 1 inch.

Not over 1 inch

Wok Cooking
We recommend that NC
you use only a flatbottomed wok.
They are available
at your local retail store.
Do not use woks that
have support rings.
Use of these types of
woks, with or without
the ring in place, can
be dangerous. Placing
the ring over the
surface unit will cause a build-up of heat that will
damage the porcelain cooktop. Do not try to use such
woks without the ring. You could be seriously burned
if the wok tipped over.
HOME CANNING TIPS
Canning should be done on surface units only.
Pots that extend beyond 1 inch of surface unit’s drip
pan 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
pressure) 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 cooktop surfaces surrounding the
surface units.

HOME CANNING TIPS
(continued)
Observe the Following Points in Canning
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 Kel”r; and the United States Department of
Agriculture Extension 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.
1. Be sure the canner fits over the center of the
surface unit. If your range or its location does not
allow the canner to be centered on the surface unit,
use smaller diameter pots for good canning results.
2. For best results, use canners with flat bottoms.
Canners with flanged or rippled bottoms (often
found in enamelware) don’t make good contact
with the surface unit and take a long time to
boil water.
Flat-bottomed canners are recommended.

USING YOUR OVEN
Oven Shelves
When placing cookware on a shelf. pull the shelf out
to the bump on the shelf support. 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 shelves from the oven, pull toward
you, tilt the front end upward and pull them out.
To replace, place the shelf on the shelf support with
the stop-locks (curved extension under the shelf)
facing up toward the rear of the oven. Tilt up the front
and push the shelf toward the back of the oven until it
goes past the bump on the shelf support. Then lower
the front of the shelf and push it all the way back.

The shelves are designed with stop-locks so that
when placed correctly on the shelf supports, they
will stop before coming out completely from the
oven, and will not tilt when removing food from or
placing food on them.
Oven Light
Automatic Oven Shut Off
(on some models)
The light comes on automatically when the oven
door is opened.
On models with an oven window, use the switch to
turn the light on and off when the door is closed.
As a safety feature, this oven will automatically shut
itself off if it has been left on for more than 12 hours.
BAKING
NOTE: When the oven is hot, the top and outside
surfaces of the range get hot too.
Do not lock the oven door with the latch during
baking. The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
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
time 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 Yourself
instructions on how to adjust the thermostat.

BAKING
(continued)
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.
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 prevent
heat from escaping.
Baking Pans
Pan Placement
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 also absorb heat. When baking
in glass baking dishes, the temperature may need to
be reduced by 25°F.
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 1X-inch space between pans
as well as from the back of the oven, the door and
the sides. If you need to 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
in 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.
14
—
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 maybe 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. Take advantage of the “Big View” window (on
some models) to monitor cooking progress. Opening
the oven door frequently during cooking allows heat
to escape and makes baking times longer. Your baking
results may also be affected.

Questions and Answers
Q. Can I use the minute timer during oven
cooking?
A. The minute timer can be used during any
cooking function.
16
Q. Can I change the time of day on the clock while
I’m Time Baking in the oven?
A. The time of day on the clock should not be
changed during any program that uses the oven
timer. You must either stop those programs or wait
until they are finished before changing the time.
You may feel that your new oven cooks differently
than the one it replaced. We recommend that you
use your new oven for a few weeks to become more
familiar with it, following the times given in your
recipes as a guide.
If you think your new oven is too hot or too cold,
you can adjust the thermostat yourself. If you think
it is too hot, adjust the thermostat to make it cooler. If
you think it is too cool, adjust the thermostat to make
it hotter.
We do not recommend the use of inexpensive
thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores,
to check the temperature setting of your new oven.
These thermometers may vary 2040 degrees.
To Adjust the Temperature on Models with HOUR Pads

ROASTING
Do not lock the oven door with the latch during
roasting. The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
Roasting is cooking by dry heat. Tender meat 01
poultry can be roasted uncovered in your oven.
Roasting temperatures, which should be low and
steady, keep spattering to a minimum.
Roasting is really a baking procedure used for meats.
Therefore, oven controls are set for Baking or Timed
Baking. (You may hem a slight clicking sound,
indicating the oven is working properly. ) Timed
Baking will turn the oven on and off automatically.
Most meats continue to cook slightly while standing,
after being removed from the oven. Standing time
recommended for roasts is 10 to 20 minutes. This
allows roasts to firm up and makes them easier to
carve. The internal temperature will rise about 5° to
10“F.; to compensate for the temperature increase, if
desired, remove the roast from the oven sooner (at 5° to
10°F. less than the temperature in the Roasting Guide).
Remember that food will continue to cook in the
hot oven and therefore should be removed when
the desired internal temperature has been reached.
1. Place the shelf in A or B position. No preheating
is necessary.
2. Check the weight
of the meat. Place it,
fat side up, (or for
poultry, breast-sideup) on the roasting
grid in a shallow
pan. The melting fat
will baste the meat.
Select a pan as close
to the size of the meat as possible. (The broiler
pan with grid is a good pan for this.)
3. Turn the Oven Temperature knob to the
desired setting.
4. After roasting is complete, turn the Oven
Temperature knob to OFF and then remove
the food from the oven.
Use of Aluminum Foil
You can use aluminum foil to line the broiler pan.
This makes clean-up easier when using the pan for
marinating, cooking with fruits, cooking heavily
cured meats or basting food during cooking. Press
the foil tightly around the inside of the pan.

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.
For roasts over 8 lbs., check with thermometer
at half-hour intervals after half the cooking time
has passed.
Q. Whv is my roast crumbling when I try to
car;e 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.

BROILING
Do not lock the oven door with the latch while
broiling. The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
Broiling 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 layer
about 1/8 inch thick.
2. Place the meat on the broiler grid in the broiler pan.
Always use the grid so the fat drips into the broiler
pan; otherwise the juices may become hot enough
to catch on fire.
3. Position a shelf on the recommended shelf position
as suggested in the Broiling Guide.
4. Leave the door open to the
broil stop position. The door - /;J””

5. Turn the Oven Temperature knob to BROIL.
6. When broiling is finished, turn the Oven
Temperature knob to OFF. Serve the food
immediately, and leave the pan outside the oven
to cool during the meal for easiest cleaning.
Use of Aluminum Foil
You can use aluminum foil to line your broiler pan
and broiler grid. However, you must mold the foil
tightly to the grid and cut slits in it just like the grid.
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 broiler pan
with food in 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.
Q. Do I need to grease my broiler grid to prevent
meat from sticking?
A. No. The broiler grid is designed to reflect broiler
heat, thus keeping the surface cool enough to
prevent the meat from sticking to the surface.
However, spraying the broiler grid lightly with
a vegetable cooking spray before cooking will
make clean-up easier.
Q. When broiling, is it necessary to always
use a grid in the pan?
A. Yes. Using the grid suspends the meat over the
pan. As the meat cooks, the juices fall into the pan,
thus keeping meat drier. Juices are protected by the
grid and stay cooler, thus preventing excessive
spatter and smoking.
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.
20
—
. Always use a broiler pan and grid. They are
designed to minimize smoking and spattering by
trapping juices in the shielded lower part of the pan.

Before a Clean Cycle
The range must be completely cool in order to set
the self-clean cycle. You may have to allow the oven
to cool before you can slide the door latch.
We recommend venting with an open window or
using a ventilation fan or hood during the first selfclean cycle.
1. Remove all cookware and any aluminum foil from
the oven—they cannot 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. To avoid heavy smoke in the kitchen during selfcleaning, wipe up heavy soil on the oven bottom.
(If you use soap, rinse thoroughly before selfcleaning to prevent staining.) The enamel grid and
broiler pan may be cleaned in the self-cleaning
oven. However, to help prevent heavy smoke
caused by self-cleaning the greasy soil in the pan,
you must first clean off the excess grease.
Oven
hght
oven door outside the gasket do not get cleaned by
the self-clean 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. Never
use a commercial oven cleaner in or around the
self-cleaning oven.
Do not use abrasives or oven cleaners. Clean the
top, sides and outside front of the oven door with
soap and water.
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.
4. Close the door and make sure the oven light
is off. If the oven light is not turned off, the life

A. This is caused by excessive soil. Turn the Oven
Temperature knob to OFF. Open the windows to
rid the room of smoke. Wait until the LATCH
DOOR light goes off. Wipe up [he 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
tind cooling during both the cooking and
cleaning functions.

CARE AND CLEANING
Proper care and cleaning are important so your range will give you efficient
and satisfactory service. Follow these directions carefully in caring for it to
help assure safe and proper maintenance.
BE SURE ELECTRIC POWER IS OFF BEFORE CLEANING ANY PART
OF THE RANGE.
If your range is removed for cleaning, servicing or any reason,
be sure the anti-tip device is re-engaged properly when the
range is replaced. Failure to take this precaution could result in
‘
tipping of the range and cause injury.

Surface Units and Drip Pans
To clean the surface units, turn the control to the highest
setting for a minute. The coils will burn off any soil.
CAUTION
● Be sure all the controls are turned to OFF and
the surface units are cool before attempting to
remove them.
● Do not immerse the surface units in 1 iquids
of any kind.
● Do not clean the surface units in a dishwasher.
● Do not bend the surface unit plug terminals.
● Do not attempt to clean, adjust or in any way repair
the plug-in receptacle.
To remove a surface unit:
To remove the drip pans for cleaning, the surface units
must be removed first
Lift the surface unit about 1 inch above the drip pan
and pull it out.
Surface Unit
Drip Pan
To replace a surface unit:
● Replace the drip pan into the recess in the cooktop.
Make sure the opening in the pan lines up with the
receptacle.
“ Insert the terminals of the surface unit through the
opening in the drip pan and into the receptacle.
● Guide the surface unit into place so it rests evenly.
Drip Pans
Remove the surface units. Then lift out the drip pans.
For best results, clean the drip pans by hand. Place
them in a covered container (or a plastic bag) with
1/4 cup ammonia to loosen the soil. Then scrub with
a soap filled scouring pad if necessary. Rinse with
clean water and polish with a clean soft cloth.
The drip pans may also be cleaned in the dishwasher.
Black drip pans (on some models) may be cleaned in
a self-cleaning oven after they have been thoroughly
rinsed. However, self-cleaning them may cause them
to lose their original luster and shine.
Clean the area under the drip pans often.
Built-up soil, especially grease, may catch fire.
Do not cover the drip pans with foil. Using foil
so close to the receptacle could cause shock, fire or
damage to the range.
Do not lift the surface unit more than 1 inch.
If you do, it may not lie flat on the drip pan when
you plug it back in.
Repeated lifting of the surface unit more than 1
inch above the drip pan can permanently damage
the receptacle.

Lift-Up Cooktop
(on some models)
Some models have a cooktop that can be lifted up
for easier cleaning. To make cleaning easier, the
entire cooktop may be lifted up and supported in the
up position.
Be sure all surface units are turned of’f before
raising the cooktop. The surface units do not need to
be removed, however, you may remove one to make
raising the cooktop easier. There are two side supports
that lock into position when the cooktop is lifted up.
After cleaning under the cooktop with hot. mild soapy
water and a clean cloth, lower the cooktop. Be caret”ul
not to pinch your fingers.
To lower the cooktop, push the rods back and gently
lower the cooktop until it rests in place.
Control Panel and Knobs
Clean up any spills or spatters with a damp cloth.
Remove heavier soil with warm. soapy water.
Clean control panel with mild liquid dish detergent
and a soft cloth. Rub control panel lightly.
CAT_JTION: Do not use abrasives of any kind on the
control panel. The lettering on models with touch
pads is sensitive to abrasives and pressure.
The control knobs may be removed for easier cleaning.
To remove a knob, pull it straight off the stem. Wash
the knobs in soap and water but do no~ soak.
Oven Vent
The oven is vented through an openin~ under {he right rear surface unit.
Never cover the opening with aluminum foil or any other material. This
would prevent the oven vent from workin: properly.
Metal Parts
Painted Surfaces
Glass Window
Do not use steel wool, abrasives,
ammonia or commercial oven
cleaners. To safely clean surfaces:
wash, rinse and then dry with a
soft cloth.
Painted surfaces include the
outside oven door. sides, control
pane] and drawer front. Clean
these with soap and water or a
vinegar tind water solution.
Do not use commercial oven
cleaners, cleansing powders,
steel wool or harsh abrasives
on any painted surface.
To clean the outside glass finish,

CARE AND CLEANING
(continued)
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.
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. If the 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.
Oven Light Replacement
●
Do not rub or clean the door gasket—the
fiberglass material of the gasket has an extremely
low resistance to abrasion. An intact and wellfitting oven door gasket is essential for energyefficient 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.
“’’-’ ’ ’ ’ ’ ’ ’ ’ ’ ’4’ ’ /nil

Inside Gasket
Outside of the door:
. Use soap and water to thoroughly clean the top,
sides and front of the oven door. Rinse well. You
may also use a glass cleaner to clean the glass on
the outside of the door.
. Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato sauces
and basting materials containing acids may cause
discoloration and should be wiped up immediately.
When the surface is cool, clean and rinse.
c Do not use oven cleaners, cleansing powders or
harsh abrasives on the outside of the door.
(on some models)
DO NOT REMOVE ANY SCREWS TO
REMOVE COVER.
2. Do not touch hot bulb with a wet cloth. Replace
bulb with a 40-watt household appliance bulb.
To replace cover:
1. Place it into the groove of the light receptacle. Pull
the wire forward to the center of the cover until it
snaps into place. When in place, the wire holds the
cover firmly. Be certain the wire is in the
depression in the center of the cover.
2. Connect electrical power to the range.
CAUTION: Before replacing your oven light bulb,
disconnect the electrical power to the range at the
main fuse or circuit breaker panel. Be sure to let
the light cover and bulb cool completely.
The oven light bulb is covered with a removable
glass cover that is held in place with a bail-shaped
wire. Remove the oven door, if desired, to reach
cover easily.
To remove:
1. Hold a hand under the
cover so it doesn’t fall
when released. With
fingers of the same
hand, firmly push back
the wire cover holder.
Lift off the cover.

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.
Broiler Pan and Grid
The oven shelves may be cleaned in self-cleaning
oven. However, they will darken, lose their luster and
become hard to slide. Wipe the shelf supports with
cooking oil after self-cleaning to make shelves slide
more easily.
(on some models)
After broiling, remove
the broiler pan from the
oven. Remove the m-id
from the pan. Care~ully pour out grease from the pan
into a proper container. Wash and rinse the broiler pan
and grid in hot water with a soap-filled or plastic
scouring pad.
The enamel gI”id and broiler pan maybe cleaned in
the self-clean oven. However, to prevent heavy smoke
caused by self-cleaning the greasy soil in the pan, you
must first clean off the excess grease.
If food has burned on, sprinkle the grid with detergent
while hot and cover with wet paper towels or a
dishcloth. Soaking the pan will remove burned on foods.
The broiler pan may be cleaned with a commercial
oven cleaner. Do not use an oven cleaner on the grid.
Both the broiler pan and grid can also be cleaned in
the dishwasher.
Do not store a soiled broiler pan and grid anywhere
in the range.
How to Remove the Storage Drawer or Kick Panel to Clean Under the Range
The area under the range can be reached easily for
cleaning by removing the bottom drawer (on some
models). To remove, pull the drawer out all the way,
tilt up the front and remove it. To replace, insert glides
at the back of the drawer beyond the stop on range
g] ides. Lift the drawer if necessary to insert easily. Let
{he front of the drawer down, then push in to close.
To clean under models
with a front kick panel,
remove the panel by pulling
it straight out at the bottom.
To replace the panel, first
hook the top tabs on and then
the bottom tabs.
‘. . ‘
/+- L
Porcelain Enamel Cooktop
The porcelain enamel finish is sturdy but
breakable if misused. This finish is acid-resistant.
However, any acidic foods spilled (such as fruit
juices, tomato or vinegar) should not be permitted to
remain on the finish.
If acids spill on the cooktop while it is hot, use
a dry paper towel or cloth to wipe it up right away.
When the sLIrfacc has cooled. wash with soap and
water. Rin~e well.
For other spills such as fat smatterings, wash with
soap and water or cleansing powders after the surface
has cooled. Rinse well. Polish with a dry cloth.
Oven Heating Elements
Do not clean the bake element or the broil element.
Any soil will burn off when the elements are heated.
The bake element can be lifted gently to clean the
oven f-loor. If spillovers. residue or ash accumulate
around the bake element gently wipe around the
element with warm water.
