IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
COOK TOP
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
OVEN
•Know which knob controls each surface heating unit. Place
a pan of food on the unit before turning it on, and turn the unit
off before removing the pan.
•Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped with one or
more surface units of different sizes. Select utensils having flat
bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating element.
The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the
heating element to direct contact and may result in ignition of
clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to element will also
improve efficiency.
•Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend
Over Adjacent Surface Units—To reduce the risk of burns,
ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional
contact with the utensil, the handle of the utensil should be
positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over
adjacent surface units.
•Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat Settings—
Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or
a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
•Do Not Immerse or Soak Removable Heating Elements—
Heating elements should never be immersed in water. Heating
elements clean themselves during normal operation.
•Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass, glass/
ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are
suitable for cook top service without breaking due to the sudden
change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s
recommendations for cook top use.
•When flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn the fan
on.
•Use Care When Opening Oven Door or Warmer Drawer (if
equipped)—Stand to the side of the range when opening the
door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you
remove or replace food in the oven.
•Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven vent is located
under the left rear surface element if your model is equipped
with coil elements. The oven vent is located below the backguard
for models equipped with ceramic-glass cook tops. Touching the
surfaces in this area when the oven is operating may cause severe
burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or
near the oven vent. These items could melt or ignite.
•Placement of Oven Racks. Always place oven racks in desired
location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is
hot use extreme caution. Use potholders and grasp the rack with
both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot
heating elements in the oven. Remove all utensils from the rack
before moving.
•Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The broiler pan
and its insert allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away from
the high heat of the broiler.
•Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil. Exposed
fat and grease could ignite.
•Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven
bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual.
Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric
shock, or fire. Improper installation of these liners may result in
risk of electric shock, or fire.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR
RANGE
FOR COIL COOK TOP MODELS
•Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that
could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area underneath
each surface element. Do not allow grease to accumulate.
•Kitchen cleaners and aerosols—Always follow the
manufacturer’s recommended directions for use. Be aware
that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite
causing damage and injury.
•Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently—Grease should not be
allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter. Follow
manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
•Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place—Absence
of these pans or bowls during cooking may subject wiring or
components underneath to damage.
•Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line surface unit
drip bowls, or reflector pans. Only use aluminum foil as
recommended in this manual. Improper installation of these
liners may result in risk of electric shock, or fire. Improper
installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or
fire.
SELF CLEANING OVENS
•Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts listed in this
Owner’s Guide. Before self cleaning the oven, remove the
broiler pan and any utensils or foods from the oven.
•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.
•Do Not Clean Door Gasket—The door gasket is essential for a
good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or move the
gasket.
•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.

Setting Surface
Controls for Models
with Coil Elements
Surface Unit Control
To Operate the Surface Element
1. Place cooking utensil on the surface element.
2. Push in and turn the Surface Control knob in either direction to the desired
setting. Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn
to a lower setting to finish cooking. The control knobs do not have to be
set exactly on a particular mark. Use the marks as a guide and adjust the
control knob as needed.
3. When cooking is completed, turn the surface element off before removing
the pan. Note: The surface signal light will glow when one or more
elements are turned on. A quick glance at the signal light(s) when cooking
is finished is an easy check to be sure all control knobs are turned off.
To Operate Simmer Select Surface Unit (If equipped)
The right side of the control knob allows you to use the Simmer Select unit as
you would any normal surface unit on the medium to high settings.
The left side of the control knob is used to operate the Simmer Select feature.
This feature allows the element to heat at a much lower temperature than
when used as a normal surface unit. This allows you to precisely simmer
delicate foods.
Simmer Select Surface Unit Control
You may switch between normal cooking and Simmer Select at any time during
the cooking process. Be sure to set the knob indicator between MAX and MIN
for simmering or between MED and HI for normal cooking.
NOTE: The unit will not operate if the knob is positioned in the space between
MAX and MED.
The suggested settings found in the chart below are based on cooking in
medium-weight aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using other
types of pans.
STANDARD SURFACE UNITS

Oven Control Styles 1
or 2 - Self Cleaning
Oven
During the self-cleaning
cycle, the outside of the range can
become very hot to the touch. DO NOT
leave small children unattended near
the appliance.
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 wellventilated room.
DO NOT line the oven
walls, racks, bottom or any other part
of the range with aluminum foil. Doing
so will destroy 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. This can damage the
automatic door locking system. Use
caution when opening the door after
the self-cleaning cycle is completed.
The oven may still be VERY HOT.
Self-Cleaning Oven
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking
temperatures) which eliminate soil completely or reduce it to a fine powdered
ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.
1. Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
• Allow the oven to cool before precleaning.
• Wear rubber gloves when precleaning and while wiping up the residue
after the self-clean cycle.
• DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any
part of the self-cleaning oven.
• 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.
• DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so
could cause damage.
2. Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils and any aluminum foil.
These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures.
3. Oven racks may be left in the oven or may be removed. If they go through
the clean cycle their color will turn slightly blue and the finish will be dull.
After the cycle is complete and the oven has cooled, rub the sides of the
racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of baby oil or
salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack position).
4. Remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the selfcleaning cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers
can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. 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 surface as
they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.
5. 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. These
areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water.

General Cleaning
Cleaning Various Parts of Your Range
Surfaces
How to Clean
Glass, Painted and Plastic Control
Knobs, Body Sides, and Decorative
Trim
For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils
and built-up grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on
soil for 30 to 60 minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use
abrasive cleaners on any of these materials; they can scratch. To remove
control knobs, turn to the OFF position; grasp firmly and pull straight off the
shaft. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob
and the shaft; then push the knob into place.
Stainless Steel, Chrome Control Panel,
Decorative Trim
Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls to OFF and remove the
control knobs. To remove, pull each knob straight off the shaft. Clean using
hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with a clean water and a dishcloth.
Cover stubborn spots with an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40
minutes. Rinse. Be sure to squeeze excess water from the cloth before wiping
the panel; especially when wiping around the controls. Excess water in or
around the controls may cause damage to the appliance. Cleaners made
especially for stainless steel such as Stainless Steel Magic, trademark of Magic
American Corp., or similar products are recommended. Always follow the
manufacturer's instructions. Be sure to rinse the cleaners as bluish stains may
occur during heating and cannot be removed. To replace knobs after cleaning,
line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into
place.
Porcelain Enamel Broiler Pan and
Insert, Door Liner, Body Sides, Warmer
Drawer (if equipped)
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with
a 1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots
with an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean
water and a damp cloth, and then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse
and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may
become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners on
the cooktop.
Oven Racks
Oven racks may be removed or left in the oven during the self-clean cycle for
cleaning. If removed, clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following
manufacturer's instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry.
Aluminum (Trim Pieces) & Vinyl
Before cleaning any part of the range, be sure all controls are turned OFF and
the range is cool. Remove spillovers and heavy soiling as soon as possible.
Regular cleanings will reduce the effort required for major cleanings later.
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.
If the racks are cleaned in the self-clean cycle, their color will turn slightly blue
and the finish will be dull. After the self-clean cycle is complete, and the oven
has cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a
small amount of baby oil or salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into
the rack positions).
Oven Door
To clean oven door, wash with hot, soapy water and a clean cloth. DO NOT
immerse the door in water.
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The oven door gasket is made of a woven
material, on self cleaning models, which is essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage or remove the gasket.
14
General Cleaning - Coil
Element Models
Be sure the range is cool
before removing elements or drip bowls.
Be careful not to bend terminal ends
when replacing elements after cleaning.
Surface Elements and Drip Bowls
Surface elements can be unplugged and removed to make cleaning the drip
pans easier. The surface elements clean themselves when they are turned on.
Food spilled on a hot element will burn off. Food spilled on a cool element may
be cleaned with a damp cloth—any remaining soil will burn off the next time
the element is used.
Never immerse a surface element in water.
To Remove the Surface Elements and Drip Bowls
1. Lift the edge of the drip bowl across from the terminal end. Lift the surface
element and drip bowl together just enough to clear the cooktop.
2. While holding the drip bowl and surface element, gently pull the terminal
end out from the terminal plug. If equipped, DO NOT remove the hold
down clip from the drip bowl.
To Clean Drip Bowls
Wash in hot, soapy water or in the dishwasher. Rinse and dry while still warm.
Hard to remove, burned on soil can be removed by soaking the drip bowls for
about 20 minutes in a lightly diluted liquid cleanser or a solution of ammonia
and water (1/2 cup ammonia to 1 gallon of water). A nylon scrubber may be
used after soaking. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or steel wool, as they will
scratch the surface. Always rinse with clean water and polish dry with a soft
cloth.
When lowering the liftup range top, grasp the sides with
finger-tips only. Be careful not to pinch
fingers. DO NOT drop or bend the
range top when raising or lowering.
This could damage the surface.
To Replace Drip Bowls and Surface Elements
1. Slide the terminal end on the element through the opening in the drip
bowl.
2. Align the element support to rest on the rim inside the drip bowl. If your
drip bowl is equipped with a hold down clip, align the element support
opposite the terminal end with the slot in the hold down clip, and snap into
place.
3. After the element is positioned in the drip bowl, line up the terminal end
with the terminal plug as shown.
4. Hold the surface element and drip bowl together as level as possible and
firmly push the terminal end into the terminal plug. Make sure element
terminal is seated properly into terminal plug. Make sure the surface
element is level to reduce the hazard of pans sliding off the element.
To Raise the Top for Cleaning
1. Grasp the sides and lift from the front. Lift-up rods will support the top in
its raised position. Only lift the top high enough to allow the support rods
to snap into place.
2. Clean underneath using a clean cloth and hot, soapy water.
3. To lower the top, gently push back on each rod to release the notched
support. Hold the range top and slide the range top down into the range
frame.

Oven Control Style 1 or
2 - Customizing Your
Oven Performance
Note: The adjustments made will not
change the self-cleaning temperature.
Control Style 1
The temperature in the oven has been set at the factory. When first using the
oven, be sure to follow recipe times and temperatures. If you think the oven
is too hot or too cool, the temperature in the oven can be adjusted. Before
adjusting, test a recipe by using a temperature setting that is higher or lower
than the recommended temperature. The baking results should help you to
decide how much of an adjustment is needed.
To Adjust Oven Temperature - Control Style 1
1. With the dial set to OFF, press and hold
for 30 seconds until
a single beep is heard.
2. Within 5 seconds, turn the Temperature Control Knob clockwise to either
the High (HI) or Low (LO) Broil setting. Select High Broil (HI) to increase the
temperature or Low Broil (LO) to decrease the temperature.
3. The temperature can be adjusted up or down 35°F, in 5°F steps, by pressing
START. Adjust until the desired amount of offset is indicated by the
indicator lights as follows:
A flashing "OVEN" indicator light indicates a positive offset, while a flashing
"LOCK" indicator light indicates a negative offset. The lights will flash once
for each 5°F of offset. If no light is flashing, the oven control has the original
factory calibration, and the offset is 0°F. Example: If the OVEN indicator
light is flashing three times and then pauses, the offset is +15°F.
4. When you have made the desired adjustment, turn the Temperature
Control Knob to OFF.
Control Style 2
To Adjust Oven Temperature - Control Style 2
1. With the dial set to OFF, press and hold
for 30 seconds until
a single beep is heard.
2. Within 5 seconds, turn the Temperature Control Knob clockwise to either
the High Broil (HI) or Low Broil (LO) setting.
3. The display now indicates the amount of degrees offset between the
original factory temperature setting and the current temperature setting.
If the oven control has the original factory calibration, the display will read
"00."
4. The temperature can now be adjusted up or down 35°F, in 5°F steps, by
pushing and holding
or
. Adjust until the desired amount of
offset appears in the display.

Avoid Service Checklist
Before you call for service, review this list. It may save you time and expense.
The list includes common occurrences that are not the result of defective
workmanship or materials in this appliance.
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION
Range is not level.
Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven
rack. Adjust leveling legs at base of range until the oven rack is level.
Be sure floor is level and is strong and stable enough to adequately support
range.
If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear unlevel. Be sure cabinets
are square and have sufficient room for range clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily.
Appliance must be accessible for
service.
Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly. Contact builder or installer to
make appliance accessible.
Surface element too hot or not hot
enough.
Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface
element to be used.
Carpet interferes with range. Provide sufficient space so range can be lifted
over carpet.
Lightweight or warped pans used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or
heavyweight cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped pans. Cookware
materials and weight of the material affect heating. Heavy- and mediumweight pans heat evenly. Because lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may
burn easily.
Surface element does not heat.
No power to the appliance. Check steps under "Entire Appliance Does Not
Operate" in this Avoid Service Checklist.
Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface
element to be used.
Element not making contact in block. Follow instructions under "Surface
Elements and Drip Bowls" in the General Cleaning section.
Entire appliance does not operate.
Make sure cord/plug is plugged tightly into outlet.
Service wiring is not complete. Contact your dealer, installing agent or
authorized servicer.
Power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric company
for service.
Cooktop and/or oven light (some
models) does not work.
Replace or tighten bulb. See Changing Cooktop and/or Oven Lights (some
models) in this Owner's Guide for instructions.
Oven smokes excessively during
broiling.
Control(s) not set properly. Follow instructions under Setting Oven Controls.
Make sure oven door is opened to broil stop position.
Meat too close to the element. Reposition the rack to provide proper clearance
between the meat and the element. Preheat broil element for searing.
Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut remaining fatty
edges to prevent curling, but do not cut into lean.
Grid on broiler pan wrong side up and grease not draining. Always place grid
on the broiler pan with ribs up and slots down to allow grease to drip into pan.
Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary when
broiling frequently. Old grease or food spatters cause excessive smoking.
18
Drip bowls are pitting or rusting.
Foods with acids, such as tomatoes, if allowed to stand in/on bowls will cause
corrosion. Remove and wash drip bowls as soon as possible after a spillover
Normal environment. Houses along sea coast are exposed to salt air. Protect
bowls as much as possible from direct exposure to salt air.
Drip bowls turning color or distorted.
Bottom surface of cookware extends beyond surface elements and touches
cooktop surface. This can cause high enough temperatures to discolor the drip
bowls. DO NOT use cookware of this type. Pan sizes should be matched to the
size of the element. Replacement drip bowls may be purchased from your
dealer.
*Oven control beeps continuously with
no indicator lights flashing. (If model
is equipped with a display, F1 or F3 will
show.)
This oven is equipped with a state of the art electronic oven controller. Among
its many features is a full time oven circuit diagnostics system. The controller
constantly monitors its internal circuitry as well as several crucial oven circuits
to insure they are all operating correctly. If at any time one of these systems
fails, the controller will immediately stop operation, and beep continuously
(flashing an error code of F1 or F3* in the display window, if equipped).
Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Turn the Temperature Control
Knob to OFF, and disconnect the power to the range. Wait 30 seconds and
reconnect the power. If fault recurs, disconnect the power and contact an
authorized servicer.
Poor baking results.
Many factors affect baking results. Make sure the proper rack position is used.
Center food in the oven and space pans to allow air to circulate. Allow the oven
to preheat to the set temperature before placing food in the oven. Try adjusting
the recipe's recommended temperature or baking time. If you feel the oven is
too hot or cool, see Adjusting Oven Temperature in this Owner's Guide.
Self-cleaning cycle does not work.
Control(s) not set properly. Follow instructions under Oven Cleaning.
Self-cleaning cycle was interrupted. Follow steps under "Stopping or Interrupting
a Self-Cleaning Cycle" under Oven Cleaning.
Soil not completely removed after selfcleaning cycle.
Failure to clean bottom, front top of oven, frame of oven or door area outside
oven seal. These areas are not in the self-cleaning area, but get hot enough to
burn on residue. Clean these areas before the self-cleaning cycle is started.
Burned-on residue can be cleaned with a stiff nylon brush and water or a nylon
scrubber. Be careful not to damage the oven gasket.
Flames inside oven or smoking from
vent.
Excessive spillovers in oven. Set self-clean cycle for a longer cleaning time.
Drip bowls are pitting or rusting.
Foods with acids, such as tomatoes, if allowed to stand in/on bowls will cause
corrosion. Remove and wash drip bowls as soon as possible after a spillover
Excessive spillovers in oven. This is normal, especially for high oven temperatures,
pie spillovers or large amounts of grease on bottom of oven. Wipe up excessive
spillovers before starting cycle. If flames or excessive smoke are present, stop
the self-clean cycle and follow steps under "Stopping or Interrupting a SelfCleaning Cycle" in the Oven Cleaning section.
Normal environment. Houses along sea coast are exposed to salt air. Protect
bowls as much as possible from direct exposure to salt air.
Drip bowls turning color or distorted.
Bottom surface of cookware extends beyond surface elements and touches
