• DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS, AREAS NEAR THESE
UNITS, OVEN HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF THE OVEN OR WARMER DRAWER (if
equipped). Both surface units and oven heating elements
may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near
surface units may become hot enough to cause burns.
During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other
flammable materials touch these areas until they have had
sufficient time to cool. Among these areas are the cooktop,
surfaces facing the cooktop, the oven vent openings and
surfaces near these openings, oven door and window.
• Wear Proper Apparel — Loose-fitting or hanging
garments should never be worn while using the
appliance. Do not let clothing or other flammable materials
contact hot surfaces.
Never use your appliance for warming or
heating the room.
• Do Not Use Water or Flour on Grease Fires—Smother
the fire with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry
chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
• When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or
grease may catch fire if allowed to become too hot.
• Use Only Dry Potholders — Moist or damp potholders
on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not
let the potholders touch hot heating surface units or interior
oven elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth
instead of a potholder.
• Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers—Build-up of
pressure may cause the container to burst and result

unattended could catch fire or spoil.
Electronic controllers can be damaged
by cold temperatures. When you use your range for the
first time, or if it has not been used for a long period of
time, make sure that it has been exposed to a temperature above 0°C/32°F for at least 3 hours before connecting it to the power supply.
Important Safety Instructions
• Placement of Oven Racks. Always place oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool. Remove all utensils from
the rack before removing rack. 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 oven element or interior of the oven.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR COOKTOP
• Know which knob controls each surface heating unit.
• 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.
The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the
surface heating unit to direct contact and may result in
ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to the
surface unit will also improve efficiency.
• Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The broiler
pan and grid allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away
from the high heat of the broiler.
• Do not cover the broiler grid with aluminum foil.
Exposed fat and grease could ignite.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Should
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.
• Do not touch a hot light bulb with a damp cloth. Doing
so could cause the bulb to break. Disconnect the range or
turn off the power to the range before removing and
replacing light bulb.
• Never Leave Surface Units Unattended — Boilovers
cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a
pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Protective Liners — Do not use aluminum foil to line oven
bottom or any other part of the range. Only use aluminum foil
as recommended for baking if used as a cover placed on the
food. Any other use of protective liners or aluminum foil may
result in a risk of electric shock or fire or a short circuit.
• 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 rangetop service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer’s recommendations for rangetop use.
SELF-CLEANING OVENS
FOR CERAMIC GLASS COOK TOP MODELS
• Do not clean the oven door gasket. Care should be taken
not to rub, damage or move the gasket.
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts of the
oven listed in this owner’s guide. Before self-cleaning
the oven, remove the broiler pan and any utensils stored in
the oven.
• Do Not Clean or Operate a Broken Cooktop — If
cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers
may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of
electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
• Do not use oven cleaners. No oven cleaner or oven liner
protective coating of any kind should be used in or around any part
of the oven.
• Clean Cooktop with Caution — If a wet sponge or cloth is
used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to
avoid a steam burn. Some cleaners can produce harmful
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
• Remove oven racks. Oven racks colour will change if left
in the oven during a self-cleaning cycle.
The health of some birds is extremely
sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-clean
cycle of any range. Move birds to another well ventilated room.
• Avoid scratching the cooktop glass with sharp objects.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR OVEN
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR
CLEANING YOUR RANGE
• Use Care When Opening Door — 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.
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease
that could catch fire. Exhaust fan ventilation hoods and
grease filters should be kept clean. Do not allow grease to
accumulate. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire.
Refer to the hood manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
• Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven is vented
between the cooktop and the backguard. 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.

Installation Instructions
Leveling
For good baking results, your range should be level. Screw type leveling legs are provided at each
corner of the range at the base. Remove the storage drawer to adjust the leveling legs. (Refer to
Storage Drawer section).
To level the range:
1. Use a 1-1/4” open end key or an adjustable wrench to equally unscrew
the four leveling legs two to three turns each.
2. Install an oven rack in the center of the oven.
3. Move the range to its final position, then put a spirit level on the rack to
check for levelness. Take two readings, one with the level placed
diagonally first in one direction, and then the other.
4. Use the 1-1/4” key or wrench to adjust the leveling legs. Turn each one
until the range stands firm without wobbling.
5. Some models are supported by smooth glide rollers to facilitate moving.
If floor is flat and level, open the drawer and lower the front roller locking levers (some models) to
prevent the range from moving.
If floor is not flat or level or if this model has rollers without locking levers, use the 4 leveling legs
to level, support and prevent the range from moving.

Setting Surface Controls
Models with Ceramic Glass Cooktop (Some models)
About the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements located below the surface of the glass. The design of the ceramic cooktop
outlines the area of the surface element underneath. Make sure the diameter of the pan matches the diameter of the element
outline on the cooktop (See Figure 1).
Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop to the cookware. Only flat-bottom cookware should be used. The type and
size of cookware, the number of surface elements in use and their settings, are all factors that will affect the amount of heat that will
spread to areas beyond the surface elements. The areas surrounding the elements may become hot enough to cause burns. The
cooktop should not be used as a cutting board or work surface. Dropping heavy or hard objects on the cooktop may crack it. Pans
with rough bottoms may scratch the cooktop surface. Placing foods directly on the smoothtop surface (without cooking utensils) is
not recommended as difficult cleaning will result and foods may smoke and cause a potential fire hazard.

The element temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the temperature
rises, the element will glow red. To maintain the selected setting, the
element will cycle on and off. The heating element retains enough heat to
provide a uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle. For efficient
cooking, turn off the element several minutes before cooking is complete.
This will allow residual heat to complete the cooking process.
2
Locations of the Radiant Surface Elements and Controls
Your appliance is equipped with radiant surface elements with different
wattage ratings. The ability to heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as the element wattage increases.
The example shown (figure 1) describes a model with all kind of elements
you could possibly have, but the element configuration, the appearance and graphics of your cooktop may be different.
NOTE: Due to the high intensity of heat generated by the surface elements, the glass surface will turn green when the element will be turned
off. This phenomenon is normal and the glass will come back to its
original white color after it has completely cooled down. (White glass
cooktops only).
Warmer Zone Element (some models) - Figure 1
NOTE: Please read detailed instructions for ceramic glass cooktop cleaning in the General Care & Cleaning section and
Before You Call checklist section of this Use and Care Guide.
NOTE: Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to cycle on and off, even at the HI setting. This helps to prevent
damage to the ceramic smooth top. Cycling at the HI setting is normal and can occur if the cookware is too small for the radiant
element or if the cookware bottom is not flat (Refer to page 12 under Selecting Surface Cooking Utensils).
Hot Surface
Surface Chaude
Element On & Hot Surface Indicator Lights
Your range is equipped with two different types of radiant surface control indicator lights that
will glow on your range— the Element On indicator light and the Hot Surface indicator lights
(See Figure 2).
The Element On indicator lights are located on the control panel above each radiant element
control knob and will glow when a surface element is turned ON. A quick glance at this indicator
light after cooking is an easy check to be sure ALL surface controls are turned OFF. The Hot
Surface indicator light located on the control panel will glow when any surface cooking area
heats up and will REMAIN ON until the glass cooktop has cooled to a MODERATE level.

constant amount of heat at each setting. A glowing red surface heating area extending
beyond the bottom edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is too small for the surface heating area.
3. When cooking has completed, turn the surface control knob to OFF before removing the cookware. Note: The Surface
Indicator light located on the control panel will come on when the control knob will be turn on and will continue to glow until
the glass cooktop has cooled down to a moderate level. The light may remain on even though the controls are turned OFF.
Note: See Figure 6 for recommended control settings.
Operating the Dual Surface Radiant Element (some models)
Element configuration, appearance and
graphics of cooktops may be different
Your model is equipped with 1 or 2 Dual Radiant Surface Elements at right front
position (See Figure 2) and at left front position. Symbols on the control panel are
used to indicate which coil of the dual radiant element will heat. The symbol
indicates that only the inner coil will heat (Figures 2 & 3). The
symbol indicates
that both inner and outer coils will heat (Figures 4 & 5). You may switch from either

Setting Warm Zone Controls (some models)
To Operate the warm zone
Your appliance is equipped with a warm zone. The purpose of the warm zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving
temperature. Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food on the warm zone.
Use the warm zone to keep cooked foods hot such as: vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries
and oven-safe dinner
All food placed on the warm zone should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain quality. For best results, when
warming pastries or breads, the cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape. Do not use plastic warp to cover
food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very difficult to clean.
Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use on the warm zone.
Unlike the surface elements, the warm zone will not glow red when it is hot. Always use potholders or oven mitts
when removing food from the warm zone as cookware and plates will not be hot.

Selecting Surface
Cooking Cookware
Cookware should have flat bottoms that
make good contact with the entire surface
heating element. Check for flatness by
rotating a ruler across the bottom of the
cookware (See Figure 1). Be sure to follow
the recommendations for using cookware
as shown in Figure 2.
Note: The size and type of cookware used
will influence the setting needed for best
cooking results.
Figure 1
Cookware Material types
Figure 2
The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly heat is
transferred from the surface element to the pan bottom. The most
popular materials available are:
ALUMINUM - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware resists
staining & pitting). If aluminum pans slide across the ceramic glass cooktop, they may leave metal marks which will resemble
scratches. Remove these marks immediately.
COPPER - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily. May leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see Aluminum above).
STAINLESS STEEL - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
CAST IRON - A poor heat conductor however will retain heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached.
Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.
PORCELAIN-ENAMEL on METAL - Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material. Porcelain-enamel coating
must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktops.
GLASS - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass.
Before Setting Oven Controls
Air Circulation in the Oven
For best air circulation and baking results allow 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 circulate around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat
to reach around the food.

Cooking Informations
Broiling
Broiling is a method of cooking tender cuts of meat by direct heat under the broil element of the oven.
Preheating
Preheating is suggested when searing rare steaks. (Remove the broiler pan before
preheating. Foods will stick if placed on hot metal.) To preheat, set the oven control(s) to
BROIL as instructed in the Electronic Oven Control Guide. Wait for the element to become
red-hot, usually about 2 minutes. Preheating is not necessary when broiling meats well-done.
Open door
to the “Broil Stop”
position when broiling.
Always pull oven rack out
to the “stop” position before turning or removing
food.
To Broil
Broil on one side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and
serve. Always pull rack out to the “stop” position before turning or removing food.
Determining Broiling Times
Broiling times vary, so watch the food closely. Time not only depends on the distance from
the element, but on the thickness and aging of meat, fat content and doneness preferred. The
first side usually requires a few minutes longer than the second. Frozen meats also require
additional time.
Broiling Tips
The broiler pan and its grid allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the
high heat of the broiler.
Grid
DO NOT use the pan without its grid. DO NOT cover the grid with foil. The
exposed grease could ignite.
Should an oven fire occur, close the oven door and turn off the oven.
If the fire continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use a fire extinguisher. DO NOT
put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive.
Broiler Pan
Broiler Clean-Up Tips:
• To make cleaning easier, line the bottom of the broiler pan with aluminum foil. DO NOT cover the broiler grid with foil.
• To prevent grease from baking on, remove the broiler pan from the oven as soon as cooking is completed. Use hot pads
because the broiler pan is extremely hot. Pour off grease. Soak the pan in HOT, soapy water.
• Clean the broiler pan as soon as possible after each use. If necessary, use soap-filled steel wool pads. Heavy scouring
may scratch the grid.

Cleaning Various Parts of Your Range
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 CLEANING WILL REDUCE THE NUMBER OF MAJOR CLEANING LATER.
Surfaces
How to Clean
Aluminum & Vinyl
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.
Painted and Plastic Control
Knobs, Body Parts, and
Decorative Trim
Using a soft cloth, clean with mild dish detergent and water or a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water.
Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry and polish with a soft cloth. Glass cleaners may
be used if sprayed on a soft cloth first. DO NOT spray liquids directly on the control pad and display
area. Do not use large amounts of water on the control panel - excess water on the control area
may cause damage to the appliance. Do not use other liquid cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring
pads, or paper towels - they will damage the finish. 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 (some models) Oven Door & Drawer
Front Panel and Decorative
Trim
Clean stainless steel with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and a
cloth. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorines. Do not
use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for
cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners from the surface as bluish
stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
Surface Elements and Drip
Bowls (some models)
Surface elements can be unplugged and removed to make cleaning the drip bowls easier.
The surface elements clean themselves when they are turned on. Food spilled on a hot
element will burn off. Food spilled on a cold element can be cleaned with a damp cloth any
remaining soil will burn off the next time element is used. NEVER IMMERSE A SURFACE
ELEMENT IN WATER. To remove surface element and drip bowls, follow the instructions
under General Cleaning.
To clean drip bowls, wash in hot, soapy water or in the dishwasher. Rinse and dry while still
warm. Hard-to-remove, burned-on soils can be removed by soaking the drip bowls for about
20 minute in a slightly diluted liquid cleanser or solution made of equal parts ammonia and
water. A nylon scrubber may be used after soaking. DO NOT use abrasive cleanser or steel
wool, as they will scratch the surface. Always rinse with clean water and polish, and dry with
a soft cloth. To replace drip bowls and surface elements, follow the instructions under
General Cleaning.
Porcelain Enamel
Broiler Pan and Insert,
Cooktop, Surface under

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 should be removed, or else their finish will dull and their color turn slightly
blue. If they do go through the self-clean cycle, wait until the oven has cooled, then remove
the oven racks and rub their sides with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of baby
or salad oil; this will make the oven racks glide easier back in and out of their positions.

Porcelain enamel cooktop cleaning instructions (some models)
Do not use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and can
chemically damage the cooking surface.
Before cleaning the surface cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is cool.
DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners on the exterior surfaces including rangetop and door frame.
Correct and consistent cleaning is essential to maintaining your porcelain enamel cooktop. If food spills and grease spatters are
not removed, they may burn onto the surface of the cooktop and cause permanent discoloration.
Daily Cleaning
For normal soil:
1. Allow cooktop surface to cool.
2. Wipe off spills and spatters using a clean paper towel or a clean cloth with warm, soapy water.
3. If needed, use a soapy steel wool pad or other mild household cleaners.
4. Be sure to rinse off the cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating.
For heavy, burned-on soil:
1. Allow cooktop surface to cool.
2. Use a soap filled scouring pad with warm water or cover heavily soiled spots with a solution of clear water and ammonia.
Scour gently. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
3. If any soil remains, apply a few drops of a recommended cooktop cleaning cream on the spots and rub gently using a clean
damp cloth or scouring pad. Buff with a dry cloth until all soil and cream are removed. Frequent cleaning with the cooktop
cleaning cream leaves a protective coating which helps in preventing scratches and abrasions.
For sugary spillovers:
Sugary spills can chemically damage your cooktop surface. Therefore, you must begin cleaning the spills while the cooktop is
still hot. Use caution when following the steps below.
1. Turn off all surface units and remove all pans immediately.
2. Wearing an oven mitt, wipe up carefully or move hot spills away from the element area with a clean damp cloth.
3. Allow the cooktop to cool. Follow the instructions above for heavy, burned-on soil.

Care & Cleaning
Ceramic Glass Cooktop Cleaning & Maintenance (some models)
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your Ceramic glass cooktop
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Creme to the ceramic
surface. Clean and buff with a non abrasive cloth or pad. This will make cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. The
special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective finish on the glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the cooktop can cause metal markings on the cooktop surface. These marks should be removed immediately after the
cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning cream. Metal marks can become
permanent if not removed prior to future use.
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough bottoms can mark or scratch
the cooktop surface. Do not slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop. Do
not use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the kitchen. Do not cook
foods directly on the cooktop surface without a pan. Do not drop heavy or hard
objects on the glass cooktop, or they may crack it.
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and can
chemically damage the ceramic glass surface.
Cleaning Recommendations for the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Creme directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or a MultiPurpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned
thoroughly, leaving no residue. Do not use the sponge you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.
For heavy, burned on soil:
First, clean the surface as described above. Then, if soils remain, carefully scrape soils with a metal razor
blade scraper, holding scraper at a 30 degree angle to the surface. Remove loosened
soils with cooktop cleaning cream and buff surface clean.
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use any scrub
pad other than a Multi-Purpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge.
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled or melted onto the ceramic
cooktop surface. Permanent damage (such as pitting of the cooktop surface) may occur
if not removed immediately. After turning the surface elements OFF, use a razor blade
scraper or a metal spatula with a mitt and scrape the soil from the hot surface (as
illustrated). Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same method for heavy or burned on
soils.
Do not use the following on the ceramic glass cooktop:
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as metal and some nylon
pads. They may scratch the cooktop, making it more difficult to clean.
• Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach, ammonia or oven cleaners, as
they may etch or discolor the cooktop.
• Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as they can leave soil or lint on the
cooktop which can burn and cause discoloration.
Special Caution for Aluminum Foil and Aluminum Cooking Utensils
• Aluminum foil: Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not use under any
circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils: Since the melting point of aluminum is much lower than that of
other metals, care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans are used. Pans that boil
dry may permanently damage cooktop by breaking, fusing to, or marking it.

Care and Cleaning of Stainless Steel (Some Models)
Some models are equipped with stainless steel exterior parts. Special care and cleaning are required for maintaining the
appearance of stainless parts. Please refer to the table provided at the beginning of the General Care & Cleaning section in
this Use & Care Guide.
Oven Cleaning
Cleaning the Manual Clean Oven (non self-clean oven, some models)
Make sure the oven is cool and that all control knobs are et OFF position. Cleaning the oven is
a lot easier when the door is removed.
1. Remove the oven door; see under To Remove and Replace the Oven Door section.
2. Empty the oven including the racks.
3. You can wash the broiler pan, grid and racks in the kitchen sink.
4. Clean oven lining thoroughly with soap and a wet cloth and wipe with a dry cloth.
To remove burned-on fat on oven walls, moisten soiled parts with household ammonia, using a
wet cloth. Follow suggested manufacturer's cleaning method. (Do not remove the oven door
when using ammonia.)
Complete cleaning with a damp cloth and use a fine steel wool scouring agent if necessary.
The lower element can be moved up for cleaning purposes.
5. Replace racks in the oven. Reinstall oven door.
Cleaning the Self-Clean Oven (some models)
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
- Allow the oven to cool before cleaning.
- Wear rubber gloves when cleaning any exterior parts of the oven manually.
During the self-clean cycle, the outside of the wall oven 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 well ventilated room.
Before cleaning any part of the oven, be sure the electronic oven control is turned off or else push CANCEL
pad. Wait until the oven is cool.
DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any art of the self-cleaning oven. DO NOT
clean the oven door gasket. The gasket on the oven door is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage
or move the gasket. DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the gasket. Doing so could damage it. DO NOT use aluminum
foil to line the oven bottom. This may affect cooking or foil could melt and damage the oven surface.
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking temperatures) which eliminate soil completely or
reduce it to a fin powdered ash you can which away with damp cloth.
Preparing the Oven for Self-Cleaning
1. Remove all excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the self-cleaning 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 tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to
remain on the surface as they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.
2. Clean any soil from the oven frame and the door liner (see illustration). These areas heat

Care & Cleaning
Oven Cleaning (Continued)
Cleaning the Self-Clean Oven (some models, Continued)
What to Expect During Cleaning
While the oven is in operation, the oven heats to temperatures much higher than those used in normal cooking. Sounds of metal
expansion and contraction are normal. Odor is also normal as the food soil is being removed. Smoke may appear through the
oven vent, located on the top of the control panel.
If heavy spillovers are not wiped up before cleaning, they may flame and cause more smoke and odor than usual. This is normal
and safe and should not cause alarm. If available, use an exhaust fan during the self-cleaning cycle.
NOTE: A smoke eliminator in the oven vent converts most of the soil into a colorless vapor.

Solutions to Common Problems
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. You will be charged for a service call while the appliance
is in warranty if the problem is not caused by defective product workmanship or materials.
Your new appliance is a carefully engineered product. Many times, what appears to be a reason to call for service requires
nothing more than a simple adjustment you can easily make in your own home or is normal operating characteristic of appliance
under certain conditions.
This list is applicable to a variety of models; some of the items will not necessarily apply to your appliance.
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION
Range is not level.
(1) 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 rack is level. When range is level, cooktop may appear
out of alignment if countertop is not level. (2) Weak, unstable floor. Be sure floor is level and
can adequately support range. Contact a carpenter to correct sagging or sloping floor. (3)
Kitchen cabinet misalignment may make range appear to be unlevel. Be sure cabinets are
square and have sufficient room for range clearance.
Cannot move appliance
easily. Appliance must be
accessible for service.
(1) Cabinets not square or are built in too tight. Contact a cabinet maker to correct the problem.
(2) Contact builder or installer to make appliance accessible. (3) Carpeting interferes with
range. Provide sufficient space so range can be lifted over carpet.
Entire range or oven does
not operate.
(1) Make sure cord/plug is tightly into outlet. (2) Service wiring is not complete. (3) Power
outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric company for service.
Oven control beeps and
displays an F error code.
(1) This oven is equipped with a state of the art electronic oven controller. Among the many
features is a full time oven circuit diagnostics system. The controller constantly monitors the
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 the
current operation and beep continuously (flashing an error code of “F1, F2, F3”, or “F9” in the
controller display window. (2) Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press STOP/
CLEAR to clear the display and stop the beeping. Reprogram oven. If fault remains, record
fault number. Press STOP/CLEAR and contact authorized servicer.
Oven light does not work.
(1) Replace or tighten bulb. See Changing Oven Light in this owner’s Guide for instructions.
Electrical outlet does not
work.
(1) Reset the breaker located underneath the control panel. (2) If the problem returns, verify if
the accessory that you connect uses more than 1800 watts. Verify if the accessory is
defective. (3)If the problem is not resolved, contact an authorized servicer.
Surface unit does not heat.
(1) No power to the appliance. Check steps under “Entire Range or Oven Does Not Operate” in
this Before you Call checklist. (2) Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on
for the surface unit to be used. (3) Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on
for the surface unit to be used.
Surface units too hot or
not hot enough.
(1) 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 medium- weight pans heat evenly. Because lightweight
pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily.
Drip bowls are pitting or
rusting.
(1) 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 spillover. (2) 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 out of shape.
(1) 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.

Solutions to Common Problems
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION
Scratches or abrasions on
cooktop surface.
(1) Coarse particles such as salt or sand between cooktop and utensils can cause scratches.
Be sure cooktop surface and bottoms of utensils are clean before usage. Small scratches do
not affect cooking and will become less visible with time. (2) Cleaning materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been used. See “Cooktop Cleaning - Ceramic Glass
Cooktop Models” section under General Cleaning. (3) Cookware with rough bottom has been
used. Use smooth, flat-bottomed cookware.
Metalmarks.
(1) Sliding or scraping of metal utensils on cooktop surface. Do not slide metal utensils on

Cleaning - Ceramic Glass Cooktop Models” section under General Cleaning.
Areas of discoloration with
metallic sheen.
(1) Mineral deposits from water and food. Remove using a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning
cream. Use cookware with clean, dry bottoms.
Poor baking results.
(1) 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 the Electronic Oven Control guide.
Fan noise during cooking
operation.
(1) A cooling fan may automatically turn on and off to cool internal parts. It is normal, and the
fan may continue to run even after oven is turned off.
Flames inside oven or
smoking from vent.
(1) Excessive spillovers in oven. This is normal, especially for pie spillovers or large amounts
of grease on the oven bottom. Wipe up excessive spillovers before starting the self-clean
cycle. If flames or excessive smoke are present, stop the self-clean cycle and follow the
steps under "Stopping or Interrupting the Self-Cleaning Cycle" in the Electronic Oven Control
guide.
Oven smokes excessively
during broiling.
(1) Control(s) not set properly. Follow instructions under “Setting Oven Controls”. (2) Make
sure oven is opened to Broil Stop Position. (3) Meat too close to the element. Reposition the
rack to provide proper clearance between the meat and the element. Preheat broil element. (4)
Grid on broiler pan wrong side up and grease not draining. Always place grid on the broiler pan

Avoid Transportation Damage to your Range
If you have to move your range into/out of your residence or when moving to a new home, it is suggested that you take
the following precautions:
(1) Screw in the levelling legs under the range. (2) Remove the racks and other utensils from the oven, and from the lower
drawer. (3) Use adhesive tape to firmly secure the door and the drawer to the side panels. Also attach the electric power
cord in the same manner. (4) Use a two-wheeled trolley with strap and fasten the range to it. Cover the appliance with a
heavy blanket to prevent scratches and dents. (5) Avoid pulling or pushing the control panel when moving the appliance.
