cause bodily injury or property damage.
Read all of the following safety instructions
before using this appliance:
• All ranges can tip.
• Injury to persons could result.
• Install anti-tip device packed
with range.
• See Installation Instructions.
To reduce the risk of tipping, the
range must be secured by
properly installed anti-tip bracket
provided with the range. To
check if the bracket is installed
properly, visually check that rear
leveling leg is inserted into and
fully secured by the anti-tip
bracket by removing lower panel or storage
drawer. For models with a warmer drawer, grasp
the top rear edge of the range and carefully
attempt to tilt it forward. Refer to the installation
instructions for proper anti-tip bracket installation.
If the information in this manual is not followed
exactly, a fire or explosion may result causing
property damage, personal injury or death.
For your safety:
• Do not store or use gasoline or other
flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of
this or any other appliance.

About the griddle (some models)
Your new appliance is supplied with a griddle. Use
the raised grill side of the griddle-Fig. 1- to cook
meats such as sausage, steak, bacon, or other
items that produce grease when cooking. Use the
smooth side of the griddle -Fig. 2- to cook items
such as pancakes, eggs or grilled cheese
sandwiches.
Using the griddle
• Place either side of the griddle centered over the
left or right side of gas burner grates. Be sure
locking tabs fit properly on top of grates-Fig. 1-.
• Preheat the griddle for 5 minutes on medium to
medium low setting. Slow preheat ensures even
heat distribution during the cooking process.
The griddle will perform best on the left side, but

Changing settings
Interior Luxury-Lighting™
Software controls the upper and warmer ovens so
that both may be set to operate at the same time
with unique settings. It is very important to
understand that before setting or modifying either
oven, you must first select which oven you desire
to set or modify.
Your appliance includes “theater” style oven
lighting that gradually lights both the upper and
warmer oven interiors to full brightness.
The display will provide which oven is currently
selected for setting/changes by displaying a small
red triangle indicator next to the upper or lower
warmer oven text -Fig.1.
This model includes 2 halogen lights in the upper
oven and one standard appliance light located on
the rear wall of the warmer oven.
If the upper oven text symbol displays the red
triangle indicator but you wish to set or change the
settings for the warmer oven, press
once
to change the oven selection. Then make the
setting/changes. You may toggle between either
oven and make setting changes at any time. You
may also make cooktop settings or modifications
without having to make an oven selection.
The
key controls the interior oven lights.
The oven lights will automatically turn ON whenever
the upper oven door is opened. The lights will
remain on until the door has been shut.
To replace any of the interior light bulbs see
“Changing the oven lights” in the Care and Cleaning
section.
Control lock
The control lock will lock the oven controls and the
upper oven door. Once locked, the upper oven
light will not switch from on to off or off to on.

Air circulation in the oven
For best air circulation and baking results allow a
space of 2-4" (5-10 cm) around the cookware for
proper air circulation and be sure pans and
cookware do not touch each other, the oven door,
sides or back of the oven cavity. The hot air must
be able to circulate around the pans and cookware
in the oven for even heat to reach around the food.
Always use potholders or oven mitts when
removing food or adjusting the oven racks. Wait
until the oven has completely cooled if possible.
Oven racks may be HOT and may cause burns.
The offset -Fig 1- and handle -Fig 3- oven rack
may be used in all of the rack positions. The offset
design provides additional height options. For
maximum available space if preparing a large
turkey, it is suggested to place the rack near the
oven bottom (rack positions 1 or 2) -refer to Fig. 4.
Do not extend the offset rack past the oven door
when in the lowest rack position.
Fig. 5 - Proper pan spacing using single oven rack.
The fully extendable glide racks -Fig. 2- make food
preparation easier. Especially when preparing
heavier dishes. The glide oven rack has 2 glide
tracks that allow you to extend your food away
from the oven effortlessly without rubbing the sides
of the oven wall.
Baking layer cakes with 1 or 2 oven

Surface Cooking
Cookware
Using proper cookware
Oven vent location
The size and type of cookware used will influence
the setting needed for best cooking results.
Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good
contact with the entire burner grate surface. Check
for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of
the cookware.
The oven vent is located below the backguard.
When the oven is on, warm air is released through
this vent. This venting is necessary for proper air
circulation and provides good baking results in the
oven. DO NOT BLOCK THIS VENT.
Cookware should always:
• Have a flat bottom.
• Have tight fitting lids.
• Be well balanced.
• Be made of a material that conducts heat well.
• Be easy to clean.

Convection roast is part of the Perfect-Convect³™
system. Convection roast combines a cook cycle
with the convection fan and element to rapidly
roast meats and poultry. Heated air circulates
around the meat from all sides, sealing in juices
and flavors. Meats cooked with this feature are
crispy brown on the outside while staying moist on
the inside. In addition, there is no need to reduce
the oven temperature when using convection roast.
Convection roast may be set with the following
options:
• Cook time or cook time with end time
• Rapid preheat
The following temperature settings apply to
convection roast:
• Factory auto-start default: 350°F/176°C

• Maximum: 550°F / 288°C
Benefits of convection roast:
• Superior multiple oven rack performance.
• Some foods cook up 25 to 30% faster, saving
time and energy.
• No special pans or bakeware required.
For best results
• Preheating is not necessary for most meats and
poultry.
• Place food items using the recommended rack
positions for the type of food being prepared.
• When placing multiple food items in the oven
allow 2-4” (5-10cm) of space between the food

When preparing meats for convection roasting, you
may use the broiler pan, insert and the roasting
rack supplied with your appliance (some models).
The broiler pan will catch grease spills and the
insert will help prevent grease splatters. The
roasting rack fits on top of the insert allowing the
heated air to circulate under the food for even
cooking and helps to increase browning on the
underside.

Setting Oven Controls
Sabbath mode
This appliance provides special settings for use
when observing the Jewish Sabbath/Holidays. This
mode will turn off all audible tones or visual
display changes normally provided by the oven
control. BAKE and cooktop heating are the only
cooking features available while in the Sabbath
mode.
You must first set theBAKE feature and
temperature(s) needed for the upper/lower oven(s),
the COOK TIME option if needed and any cooktop
power levels before setting the Sabbath mode. Any
settings made prior to setting the Sabbath mode
will be visible in the displays. The COOK TIME
option, if set prior to the Sabbath mode, will give 1
audible alert at the end of COOK TIME.
The Sabbath mode will override the factory preset
12 Hour Energy Saving mode and the appliance
will stay on until the cooking features are
cancelled. If any of the cooking features are
cancelled when the appliance is in the Sabbath
mode, no audible or visual indicators will be
available to verify the cancellation.
If the oven interior lights are needed, be sure to
activate them prior to setting the Sabbath mode.
Once the oven light is turned ON and the Sabbath
mode is active, the oven light will remain on until
the Sabbath mode is turned off and the oven lights
are turned off. The oven door will not activate the
oven interior lights when the oven door is opened
or closed.
It is recommended that any oven temperature
change with the Sabbath mode be followed with 2
presses of the START key. This will insure the
oven remains ON even if the attempt to set the
oven temperature was lower or higher than the
oven control can accept. If the oven temperature is
set incorrectly, the oven temperature will default to
170°F or 550°F. Try to set the desired oven
temperature again.
The cooktop settings may also be changed even
after the appliance has been set for the Sabbath
mode (Jewish Holidays only).
Should a power failure or interruption occur during
the Sabbath/Holidays, the appliance will shut OFF.
When power is restored the appliance will not turn
back on automatically to the original BAKE feature
settings. SF will appear in the control display panel
indicating a Sabbath mode failure. - Fig. 1 After a power failure, the food may be safely
removed from the oven while still in the Sabbath
mode.

Setting Warmer Oven Controls
Warmer oven features
The warmer oven is ideal for warming foods such
as pizza, casseroles, baked potatoes and frozen
convenience foods. Use the keep warm feature to
keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature.
The warmer oven may be set with the keep warm
feature.
• KEEP CHILDREN AWAY FROM THE
LOWER OVEN WHEN HOT. FAILURE TO DO
SO CAN RESULT IN BURNS.
Recommendations for the warmer oven
• When placing food in the lower oven always use
a baking sheet or pan with 4 raised sides to
prevent food from sliding off.
• DO NOT LINE THE OVEN DRAWER WITH
FOIL OR COVER THE OVEN RACK WITH
FOIL. This may result in damage to your oven.
• The maximum height of foods and utensils that
may be used in the lower oven is 2-1/2”. The
maximum width is 15”. Pay close attention to
foods that have potential to rise beyond the
recommended 2-1/2” maximum height.
• Use pans in the lower oven large enough to
contain food and any juices created from the
cooking process.
• Always use oven mitts when removing food
from the lower oven. The lower oven rack,
compartment, cookware/plates may be hot.
• Should an oven fire occur, close the drawer
and turn the lower oven OFF. If the fire
continues, use a fire extinguisher. Do not put
water or flour on the fire. Flour may be
explosive.
For best results
• The warmer oven rackmust always be in place
when warming. Be sure that the rack is placed
with the down turned sides into the drawer-Fig.
1. This will provide for some air space between
the drawer and the food.
• For best results with the warmer oven, pastries,
casseroles with crumb toppings and bakery
type items should be cooked in the upper oven.
• When using the warmer oven, limit the number of
times the drawer is opened; this will minimize
heat loss. Repeated opening of the drawer
during the warming process may produce
uneven results.
• Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic
may melt onto the drawer or surrounding
areas and be very difficult to clean.Use a lid or
aluminum foil instead. Use only utensils and
cookware in the oven drawer that are
recommended for oven use in the upper oven.

Self-Clean
Before starting self-clean
A self-cleaning oven automatically cleans with high
temperatures that are well above those used for
normal cooking. The self-clean feature eliminates
soils completely or reduces them to a fine
powdered ash that you can later easily wipe away
with a damp cloth.
Adhere to the following precautions when
running the self-clean cycle:
During the self-clean cycle, the outside of the
appliance can become very hot to the touch.Do
not leave small children unattended near the
appliance.
• Do not use oven cleaners or protective coatings
in or around the oven interior.
• Do not clean the oven door gasket. The woven
material of the oven door gasket is essential for
a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub,
damage or remove the gasket -Fig. 1.
• Do not use any cleaning materials on the door
gasket. Leaving chemical residue can damage
the door gasket.
• DO NOT line the oven walls, oven racks,
bottom or any other part of the range with
aluminum foil. Doing so will stop heat
distribution, produce poor baking results
and cause permanent damage to the oven
interior (aluminum foil will melt to the interior
surface of the oven).
• DO NOT force the oven door open. The
automatic door locking system can be
damaged.
• Use caution when opening the door after the
self-clean cycle is finished. The oven may
still be VERY HOT.
• Remove the broiler pan, insert, all utensils and
any aluminum foil. These items cannot
withstand high cleaning temperatures.
• The health of some birds is extremely
sensitive to the fumes given off during the
self-cleaning cycle of any range. Move birds
to another well-ventilated room.
• All oven racks MUST be removed. If they are
left in while attempting to set a self-clean cycle,
the display will show REMOVE RACKS -Fig. 2.
The oven control will not start a self-clean cycle
without first removing all the oven racks.
• Remove any excessive spilloversin the oven
cavity before starting a self-clean cycle. To
clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large
spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when
subjected to high temperatures.
• Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door
liner outside the oven door gasket and the small
area at the front center of the oven bottom with
soap and water. These areas heat sufficiently to
burn soil on.
• Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or
acid content (such as milk, tomatoes,
sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on
the porcelain surface, they may leave a dull spot
even after cleaning.

clean the cooktop whenever the cooktop or
burner heads are still hot.
• To avoid possible burns DO NOT attempt any
of the following cleaning instructions provided
before turning OFF all of the surface burners
and allow them to cool.

burner caps in the correct locations. Before using
your gas range be sure to:
• Follow installation instructions before operating.
• Remove all packing tape from cooktop area.
Lift the burner cap from the burner head. The
surface burner heads are secured to the cooktop
and must be cleaned in place.
For proper gas flow it may be necessary to clean the
burner heads and slots. To clean, first use a clean
DAMP cloth to soak up any spills. Remove any food
from between the burner slots using a small
nonabrasive brush like a toothbrush and afterwards
wipe up using a damp cloth. For stubborn soils
located in the slots, use a small-gauge wire or needle
to clean.
Should you experience ignition problems it may be
that an ignition port hole is partially blocked with soil.

Oven smokes excessively during
broiling
• Control not set properly. Follow broiling instructions under
Setting Oven Controls.
• Make sure oven door is closed when broiling.
• Meat too close to the broil burner. Reposition the broil
rack to provide proper clearance between the meat & the
element. Preheat the broil burner for searing.
• Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from
meat. Cut remaining fatty edges to prevent curling, but
do not cut into lean.
• Insert on broiler pan wrong side up & grease not draining.
Always place grid on the broiler pan with ribs up & slots
down to allow grease to drip into pan (some models).
• Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is
necessary when broiling frequently. Old grease or food
spatters cause excessive smoking.
