Read all instructions before
using this appliance.
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 cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm,
and requires businesses to warn customers of
potential exposure to such substances,.
Gas appliances cause minor exposure to four
of these substances,
namely benzene, carbon
monoxide, formaldehyde and soot, caused primarily by
the incomplete combustion of natural gas or LP fuels°
Properly adjusted burners, indicated by a bluish rather
than a yellow flame, will minimize incomplete
combustion_ Exposure to these substances can be
minimized further by venting with an open window or
using a ventilation fan or hood.
When You Get Your Range
,
Have the installer show you the location of the
range gas shut-off valve and how to shut it off
if necessary.
Have your range installed and properly grounded
by a qualified installer in accordance with the
Installation lnstructions_ Any adjustment and service
should be performed only by qualified gas range
installers or service technicians.
Plug your range (electronic ignition models only)
into a 120-volt grounded outlet only. Do not remove
the round grounding prong from the plug.. If in doubt
about the grounding of the home electrical system, it is
your personal responsibility and obligation to have an
ungrounded outlet replaced with a properly grounded,
three-prong outlet in accordance with the National
Electrical Code, In Canada, the appliance must be
electrically grounded in accordance with the Canadian
Electrical Code. Do not use an extension cord with this
appliance_
Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of
your range unless it is specifically recommended
in this manual, All other servicing should be referred
to a qualified technician
Be sure all packing materials are removed from
the range before operating it to prevent fire or
smoke damage, should the packing material ignite.
Locate the range out of kitchen traffic path
and out of drafty locations to prevent pilot
outage (on models with standing pitots) and
poor air circulation.
After prolonged use of a range, high floor
temperatures may result and many floor coverings
will not withstand this kind of use. Never install the
range over vinyl tile or linoleum that cannot withstand
such type of use. Never install it directly over interior
kitchen carpeting.
Be sure your range is correctly adjusted by a
qualified installer for the type of gas (natural or
LP), that is to be used. Your range can be converted
for use with either type of gas° See the Installation
Instructions.
WARNING: These
adjustments
must
be
made by a qualified service technician in accordance
with the manufacturer's instructions and all codes and
requirements of the authority having jurisdiction,
Failure to follow these instructions could result in
serious injury or property damage. The qualified
agency performing this work assumes responsibility
for the conversion..
AWARNING
All ranges can tip and injury could
result. To prevent accidental tipping
of the range, attach it to the wall and
floor by installing the Anti-Tip device
supplied,
To check if the device is installed and
engaged properly, remove the broiler
drawer and inspect the rear leveling lego
Make sure it fits securely into the slot.
If you pull the range out from the wall
for any reason, make sure the device
is properly engaged when you push
the range back against the wall. If it is
not, there is a possible risk of the range tipping over and
causing injury if you or a child stand, sit or lean on an open
door. Please refer to the Anti-Tip device information in this
manual. Failure to take this precaution could result in
tipping of the range and injury.
(continued next page)
Cook meat and poultry thoroughly--meat
to at
least an INTERNAL temperature of 160°F and poultry
to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 180°E
Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against
foodborne illness_
Using Your Range
•
Do not leave children alone or unattended where
a range is hot or in operation. They could be
seriously burned..
Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on
the door, storage or broiler drawer (depending on
model) or cooktop, They could damage the range
and even tip it over, causing severe personal injury..
Let the burner grates and other surfaces cool
before touching them or leaving them where
children can reach them.
CAUTION: ITEMS OF INTEREST TO CHILDREN
SHOULD NOT BE STORED IN CABINETS ABOVE A
RANGE OR ON THE BACKSPLASH OF A RANGE-CHILDREN CLIMBING ON THE RANGE TO REACH
ITEMS COULD BE SERIOUSLY INJURED.
Never wear loose fitting or hanging garments
while using the appliance. Be careful when reaching
for items stored in cabinets over the cookto F
Flammable material could be ignited if brought
in contact with flames or hot oven surfaces and
may cause severe burns.
Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up
a flaming pan, Turn the controls off,. Smother a
flaming pan on a surface unit by covering the pan
completely with a well-fitting lid, cookie sheet or flat
tray. Use a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type
fire extinguisher.
Flaming grease outside a pan can be put out by
covering it with baking soda or, if available, by using
a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type fire
extinguisher.
Flame in the oven or broiler drawer can be smothered
completely by closing the oven door or drawer and
turning the oven off or by using a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher..
Do not store flammable materials in an oven,
broiler drawer or near the cooktop.
Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids
in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
Large scratches or impacts to glass doors can
lead to broken or shattered glass.
For your safety, never use your appliance for
warming or heating the room.
Surface Cooking
•
Always use the LITE position (on models with
electronic ignition) or the HI position (on models
with standing pilots) when igniting the top burners
and make sure the burners have ignited.
o Never leave the surface burners unattended at high
flame settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may catch on fire.
• Adjust the top burner flame size so it does not
extend beyond the edge of the cookware. Excessive
flame is hazardous
Use only dry pot holders--moist or damp pot holders
on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam.
Do not let pot holders come near open flames
when lifting cookware, Do not use a towel or other
bulky cloth in place of a pot holder.
To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition of
flammable materials and spillage, turn cookware
handles toward the side or back of the range without
letting them extend over adjacent burners.
Always turn the surface
removing cookware.
burners to OFF before
Carefully watch foods being fried at a high flame
setting.
Never block the vents (air openings) of the range.
They provide the air inlet and outlet that are necessary
for the range to operate properly with correct
combustion. Air openings are located in the
following places:
--Oven
vent at the rear of the cooktop°
--Air
intake under the broiler drawer°
--Air
vent at the top of the oven door.
Do not lift the cooktop on sealed burner models.,
Lifting the cooktop can lead to damage and improper
operation of the range.
= Do
not use a wok on models with sealed burners
if the wok has a round metal ring that is placed over
the burner grate to support the wok_ This ring acts
as a heat trap, which may damage the burner grate
and burner head. Also, it may cause the burner to work
improperly This may cause a carbon monoxide level
above that allowed by standards, resulting in a heaith
hazard.
• 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 the least possible amount of 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 stowly.
• Always heat fat slowly
and watch as it heats.
, Use a deep4at thermometer whenever possible to
prevent overheating fat beyond the smoking point°
o Never try to move a pan of hot fat, especially
a deep fat fryer. Wait until the fat is cool.
• When using glass cookware, make sure it is designed
for top-of-range cooking.
. Use proper pan size. Avoid pans that are unstable or
easily tipped, Select cookware having flat bottoms large
enough to properly contain food and avoid boilovers
and spillovers and large enough to cover burner grates.
This wilt both save cleaning time and prevent
hazardous accumulations of food, since heavy
spattering or spillovers left on the range can ignite.
Use pans with handles that can be easily grasped
and will remain cool.
, Keep all plastics away from the top burners.
° Do not leave plastic
items on the
cook'top--they may
melt if left too close
to the vent,
Vent appearance
and location vary
Do not leave any items on the cooktop. The hot air
from the vent may ignite flammable items and wilt
increase pressure in closed containers, which may
cause them to burst,
To avoid the possibility of a burn, always be certain
that the controls for all burners are at the OFF
position and all grates are cool before attempting
to remove them.
When flaming foods are under the hood, turn the fan
OFF. The fan, if operating, may spread the flames.
tf the range is located near a window, do not hang
long curtains that could blow over the top burners and
create a fire hazard°
When a pilot goes out (on models with standing
pilots), you will detect a faint odor of gas as your signal
to retight the pilot. When relighting the pilot, make sure
the burner controts are in the OFF position, and follow
instructions in the Installation instructions
to relighL
If you smell gas, and you have already made sure the
pilots are lit (on models with standing pilots), turn off the
gas to the range and call a qualified service technician.
Never use an open flame to locate a leak,

Cleaning "YourRange
• Do not use the oven for a storage area. Items stored
in the oven can ignite.
o Clean only parts listed in this Use and
Care Guide.
• Stand away from the range when opening the door
of a hot oven. The hot air and steam that escape
can cause burns to hands, face and eyes.
° Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
• Place the oven shelves in the desired position
while the oven is cool.
Keep the range clean and free of accumulations
of grease or spillovers,
which may ignite.
Be careful when you clean the cooktop because
the area over the pilot will be hot (for standing
pilot models).
For continuous clean models, do not use oven
cleaners on any of the continuous cleaning
surfaces. Continuous cleaning surfaces can be
identified by their rough surface finish,
• Pulling out the shelf to the shelf-stop is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also
a precaution against burns from touching hot
surfaces of the door or oven walls. The lowest
position (R) is not designed to slide.
• Do not heat unopened food containers° Pressure
could build up and the container could burst,
causing an injury°
• Do not use aluminum foil anywhere in the oven
except as described in this manual. Misuse could
result in a fire hazard or damage to the range
• Never use aluminum foil to line the oven bottom.
Improper
use of foil could start a fire.
• When using cooking or roasting bags in the oven,
follow the manufacturer's directions°
• Use only glass cookware that is recommended

On ranges with sealed burners:
• The smaller burner (right rear position) will give
the best simmer results., It offers precise cooking
performance for delicate foods, such as sauces
or foods which need to cook over low heat for a
long time. It can be turned down to a very low
simmer setting,.
• The right front burner is higher powered than
the others and will bring liquids to a boil quicker
(natural gas installations only).
• On some models, the burners are all the same
size and power.
Before
Lighting
a Burner
Lighting Instructions
for
Electronic Ignition Models
• If drip pans are supplied with your range, they should
be used at all times
Your surface burners are lighted by electronic ignition,
eliminating the need for standing pilot lights with
constantly burning flames.
° Make sure all grates on the range are in place before
using a burner..
In case of a power failure, you can light the surface
burners on your range with a match. Hold a lighted match
to the burner, then turn the knob to the LITE position°
Use extreme caution when lighting burners this way.
Surface burners in use when an electrical power failt, re
occurs will continue to operate normally.,
The electrode of the spark igniter is expose& When
one burner is turned to LITE, all the burners spark.
Do not attempt to disassemble or clean around any
burner while another burner is on. An electric shock
may result, which could cause you to knock over hot
cookware.
To Light a Surface
Burner
Electronic Ignition Models:
Make sure all burners and caps
are in place.
Push the control knob in and
turn it to LifE. You will hear a little
"clicking" noise--the sound of the
electric spark igniting the burner.
Standing
Pilot Models:
Push the control knob in and turn it to HI position.
The burner should light within a few seconds.
After the burner ignites, turn the knob to adjust the
flame size.
Flame will be almost horizontal and will lift slightly
away from the burner when the burner is first turned
on. A blowing sound may be heard the first few
seconds. This normal sound is due to improved injection
of gas and air into the burner. Put a pan on the burner
before lighting it, or adjust the flame to match pan size
as soon as it lights, and the blowing sound will stoF
After Lighting
a Burner
• After the burner ignites, turn the knob to adjust
the flame
° Check to be sure the burner you turned on is the one
you want to use.
• Do not operate a burner for an extended pedod of time
without cookware on the grate. The finish on the grate
may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.
° Be sure the burners and grates are coot before you
place your hand, a pot holder, cleaning cloths or other
materials on them
How
to Select
Flame
Size
Watch the flame, not the knob, as you reduce heat.
When fast heating is desired, the flame size on a gas
burner should match the cookware you are using°
FOR SAFE HANDLING OF
COOKWARE NEVER LET THE
FLAME EXTEND UP THE
SIDES OF THE COOKWARE.
Any flame larger than the bottom
of the cookware will not result in faster heating of the
cookware and could be hazardous°
Top-of-Range
Cookware
Aluminum: Medium-weight cookware is recommended
because it heats quickly and evenly., Most foods brown
evenly in an aluminum skillet. Use saucepans with tightfitting lids when cooking with minimum amounts of water.
Cast-Iron: If heated slowly, most skillets will give
satisfactory result&
Enamelware: Under some conditions, the enamel
of some ceokware may melt, Follow cookware
manufacturer's recommendations for cooking methods°
Glass: There are two types of glass cookware--those
for oven use only and those for top-of-range cooking
(saucepans, coffee and teapots). Glass conducts heat
very slowly.
Heatproof Glass Ceramic: Can be used for either
surface or oven cooking° It conducts heat very slowly
and cools very slowly. Check cookware manufacturer's
directions to be sure it can be used on gas ranges,
Stainless Steel: This metal alone has poor heating
properties and is usually combined with copper,
aluminum or other metals for improved heat distribution.
Combination metal skillets usually work satisfactorily if
they are used with medium heat as the manufacturer
recommends.
Wok This Way
(on models with sealed burners)
We recommend that you
use a 14-inch or smaller
flat-bottomed wok Make sure
the wok bottom sits flat on the
grate. Only a flat-bottomed wok should be used.
They are available at your local retail store°
Do not use a flat-bottomed
wok on a support ring_
Placing the ring over the
burner grate may cause the
burner to work improperly,
resulting in carbon monoxide
levels above allowable standard&
This could be dangerous to your health.
Stove Top Grills
(on models with sealed burners)
Do not use stove top grills on
your sealed gas burners_ If you
use the stove top grill on the
sealed gas burner it will cause
incomplete combustion and can
result in exposure to carbon
monoxide levels above allowable
standards, This can be
hazardous to your health°

Your Oven
Lighting Instructions for
Electric Ignition Models
Be sure you understand how to set the control properly.
Practice removing and replacing the shelves while the
oven is cool. Read the information and tips on the
following pages. Keep this guide handy where you can
refer to it, especially during the first weeks of using your
new range_
The oven burner is lighted by electric ignition
(on some models).
To light the burner, turn the OVEN TEMP knob to the
desired temperature. The burner should ignite within
30-90 seconds.
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the desired

Lighting Instructions
Standing
After the oven reaches the selected temperature, the
oven burner cycles--off completely, then on with a full
flame--to keep the oven temperature controlled.
for
Pilot Models
Some models have standing oven pilots that must be
lit initially..
Power Outage
CAUTION: Do not make any attempt to operate the
electric ignition oven during an efectfical power failure..
The oven or broiler cannot be lit during a power
failure. Gas wilt not flow unless the glow bar is hot
To light the oven pilot:
1. Be sure the OVEN TEMP knob is in the
OFF position.
2. Open the broiler drawer and remove the broiler
pan and grid.. This will make it easier for you to reach
inside the broiler compartment.
If the oven is in use when a power failure occurs, the
oven burner shuts off and cannot be re-lit until power
is restored.,
3. Find the oven pilot port
at the back of the broiler
compartment.. The long
tube, running from front
to back, is the oven burner..
The pilot port is at the
back, about one inch
below the burner..
(continued next page)
4. Using a long match or
match holder, reach in
and light the oven pilot°
• To light the oven burner,
turn the OVEN TEMP knob
to the desired temperature. The burner should light
within 60 seconds..
• Proper flame configuration: While using the oven
burner, visually check the burner flame in the broiler
compartment.. If flame does not burn as described in the

Shelf
Positions
Oven
The oven has five shelf
supports for baking and
roasting as shown in this
illustration--A (bottom), B,
C, D and E (top). It also has
a special tow shelf position
(R) for roasting extra large
items, such as a large
turkey--the shelf is not
designed to slide out at this
position. The shelf positions
for cooking are suggested in
the Baking and Roasting sections.,
Vents
The oven is vented through duct openings at the rear of
the range. Do not block these openings when cooking in
the oven--it is important that the flow of hot air from the
oven and fresh air to the oven burners be uninterrupted.
• Avoid touching the vent openings and nearby
surfaces during oven or broiler operation. They may
become hot,
Do not leave plastic
or flammable items
on the cooktop-they may melt or
ignite if left too
close to the vent.
Handles of pots and
Vent appearance and location vary
pans on the cooktop may become hot if left too
close to the vent.
• Metal items will become very hot if they are left on
the cooktop and could cause burns.
• Do not leave closed containers on the cooktop. The
pressure in closed containers may increase, which may
cause them to burst.
Oven Moisture
As your oven heats up, the temperature change of the
air in the oven may cause water droplets to form on
the door glass. These droplets are harmless and will
evaporate as the oven continues to heat up..
(continued next page)

Preheating
Baking
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for iL 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.
Your oven temperature is controlled very accurately
using an oven control system, It is recommended that
you operate the oven for a number of weeks to become
familiar with your new oven's performance. If you think
an adjustment is necessary, see the Adjust the Oven
Thermostat section.,
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.
NOTE: Your oven is not designed for open-door cooking..
How to Set Your Range
for Baking
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the

• Glass baking dishes also absorb heat, When baking in
glass baking dishes, the temperature may need to be
reduced by 25°F (13°C).
• If you are using dark non-stick pans, you may find that
you need to reduce the oven temperature 25°F (13°C)
to prevent over-browning.,
Pan Placement
For even cooking and proper browning, there must be
enough room for air circulation in the oven. Baking results
will be better if baking pans are centered as much as
possible rather than being placed to the front or to the
back of the oven.
Pans should not touch each other or the walls of the
oven. Allow t - to 1V2-inch (2.5- to 4-cm) 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.

Adjust the Oven Thermostat-Do It Yourself!
Air Adjustment
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.
See the Installation Instructions of this manual for
instructions for location and proper adjustment of
the shutter.

fat content of a spread product, the more noticeable
these differences become.
the Thermostat:
Federal standards require products labeled "margarine"
to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low fat spreads,
on the other hand, contain less fat and more water.
The high moisture content of these spreads affect the
texture and flavor of baked goods For best results with
your otd favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or stick
spreads containing at least 70% vegetable oil
Pull the oven TEMP knob off the range and look at
the back side.
To make adjustment, loosen (approximately one turn),
but do not completely remove, the two screws on the
back of the knob With the back of the knob facing you,
hold the outer edge of the knob with one hand and
turn the front of the knob with the other hand.
(appearance
for Oven Burners
Most recipes for baking have been developed using
high fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat).
If you decrease the fat, the recipe may not give the
same results as with a higher fat product.
We do not recommend the use of thermometers,
such as those found in grocery stores, to check the
temperature setting of your new oven These
thermometers may vary 20-40°F (11-22°C)

Broiling
Use of Aluminum
Broiling is cooking food by direct heat from above the
food. Your range has a convenient drawer below the oven
for broiling_ It also has a specialty designed broiler pan
and grid that allows the dripping fat to drain away from
the high heat of the gas flame,
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,
It is recommended that meat be cooked to at least an
INTERNAL temperature of 160°F (71°C) and poultry
to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 180°F (82°C)
Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against
foodborne illness.
Without the slits, the foil
Cut slits in the foil just like the grid
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.
Distance from the heat source may be changed by
positioning the broiler pan and grid on one of the three
shelf positions in the broiler drawer--A (bottom of broiler
drawer), B (middle) and C (top)_
Never cover the oven bottom with aluminum
foil.
Never entirely cover a
shelf with aluminum foil.
This will disturb the heat
circulation and result in
poor baking.. Aluminum foil
may also be used to catch
a spitlover. To do so, place
a small sheet of foil on a
lower shelf several inches
below the food..
Most fish and tender cuts of meat can be broiled.,
Foltow these directions to keep spattering and smoking
to a minimum,
The oven door and broiler drawer door must be
closed during broiling.
Turn most foods once during cooking (the exception is
thin fillets of fish; oil one side, place that side down on the
broiler grid and cook without turning until done). Time the
food for about one-half the total cooking time, turn the
food, then continue to cook to the preferred doneness
How
Foil
(continued next page)
to Broil
1. The broiler drawer does not need to be preheated
for broiling.
2, If the meat has fat or gristle around the edge, cut
vertical stashes through both about 2" (5 cm) apart,
but do not cut into meat.. If desired the fat may be
trimmed, leaving a layer about t/8" (3 mm) thick.
3. Arrange the food on the grid and position the broiler
pan on the appropriate shelf in the broiler drawer..
Placing the food closer to flame sears the exterior
and increases the surface browning of food, but also
increases spattering and the possibility of fats and
meat juices igniting..
4. Close the broiler drawer and turn the OVEN TEMP
knob to BROIL.
5. When broiling is finished, turn the OVEN TEMP knob
to OFR Remove the broiler pan from the broiler drawer
and serve the food immediately Do not leave a soiled
broiler pan and grid inside the range.

Broiling
Guide
The oven door and broiler drawer must be closed during
broiling_
If desired, marinate meats or chicken before broiling..
Or brush with barbecue sauce last 5 to 10 minutes only.
• Always use the broiler pan and grid that comes with your
range. I1is designed to minimize smoking and spattering by
trapping juices in the shielded lower part of the pan.
When arranging the food on the pan, do net let fatty edges
hang over the sides because dripping fat could soil the oven.
The broiler drawer does not need to be preheated However,
for very thin foods, or to increase browning, preheat if desired.
° For steaks and chops, slash fat evenly around the outside
edges of the meal To slash, cut crosswise through the outer
fat surface just to the edge of the meat. Use tongs to turn the
meat over to prevent piercing the meat and losing juices.
The size, weight,
thickness, starling
temperature and your
preference of donaness
will affect broiling times

They provide the air inlet and outlet that are
necessary for the range to operate properly with
correct combustion. Air openings are located at the
rear of the cooktop, at the top and bottom of the
oven door, and at the bottom of the range, under
the broiler drawer..
Panel (Front
Manifold
Panel)
tt's a good idea to wipe the control panel after each
use of the oven. Use a damp cloth to clean or rinse° For
cleaning, use mild soap and water or a 50/50 solution of
vinegar and water. For rinsing, use clean water.. Polish
dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use abrasive cleansers, strong liquid cleaners,
plastic scouring pads or oven cleaners on the control
panel--they will damage the finish.. Do not bend control
knobs by pulling them up or down or by hanging a towel
or other such loads on them. This can damage the gas
valve shaft..
Broiler Pan and Grid
After broiling, remove the broiler pan from the broiler
compartments. Remove the grid from the pan. Carefully
pour out grease from the pan into a proper container..
Wash and rinse the broiier pan and grid in hot water
with a soap4illed or plastic scouring pad.
The control knobs may be removed for easier
cleaning. To remove knob, pull it straight off the stem..
if knob is difficult to remove, place a towel or dishcloth
between the knob and control panel and pull gently..
Wash the knobs in soap and water, or a vinegar and hot
water solution..
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.
Metal parts can be cleaned with soap and water.. Do not
use steel wool, abrasives, ammonia, acids or commercial
oven cleaners. Dry with a soft cloth.
The broiler pan and grid may be cleaned with a
commercial oven cleaner.
Both the broiler pan and grid can also be cleaned in
a dishwasher°
Oven Light Bulb
(on some models)
Do not store a soiled broiler pan and grid anywhere
in the range.
CALYrlON: Do not clean the broiler pan or grid in
a self-cleaning oven.
Oven Shelves
CAUTION: Disconnect electrical power to the
oven at the main circuit breaker or fuse box before
attempting to replace the oven light bulb. Do not
touch a hot light bulb with wet hands or a wet cloth,
Clean the shelves with an abrasive cleanser or
scouring pad. After cleaning, rinse the shelves with
clean water and dry with a clean cloth_
The light bulb is located in the upper left corner of

Lift-Off
Oven
Porcelain
Door
Oven
Interior
(on all models except continuous cleaning models)
The oven door is removable but it is heavy "You may
need help removing and replacing the door,
With proper care, the porcelain enamel interior will retain
its attractive finish for many years.
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_
Soap and water will normally do the job. Heavy spattering
or spillovers may require cleaning with a mild abrasive
cleanser. Soap-filled steel wool pads may also be used.
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_ They may cause dull spots
even after cleaning,.
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 hinges
snap back against the oven
frame, pull them back out..
Household ammonia may make the cleaning job easier.
Place 1/2cup (125 ml) ammonia in a shallow glass pan
and leave in a cold oven overnight° The ammonia fumes
will help loosen the burned-on grease and food.
When necessary, you may use a commercial oven
cleaner_ Follow the package directions.
Cautions
about using spray-on oven cleaners:
• Be careful where the oven cleaner is sprayed.
To Clean the Door:
Do not allow excess water to run into any holes or slots
in the door.
- Do not spray oven cleaner on the electrical controls
and switches (on some models) because it could
cause a short circuit and result in sparking or fire°
Inside of door:
Do not allow a film from the cleaner to remain on the
temperature sensing bulb--it could cause the oven to
heat improperly (The bulb is located at the rear of the
oven_) Carefully wipe the bulb clean after each oven
cleaning, being careful not to move the bulb as a
change in its position could affect how the oven bakes°
Allow to coot before cleaning. For light soil, wipe
frequently with mild soap and water (especially after
cooking meat). This will prolong the time between
major cieanings,. Rinse thoroughly,
NOTE: Soap left on the oven door causes
additional stains when the oven is reheated,
Do not spray any oven cleaner on the outside oven
door, handles or any exterior surface of the oven,
cabinets or painted surfaces The cleaner can damage
these surfaces.
For heavy soil, you can use an oven cleaner (to avoid
damage to continuous clean oven surfaces, remove
the door of these models before spraying) and follow
label instructions. Rinse welt.
See "Cautions about using spray-on oven cleaners"
below°
(continued next page)
Outside of 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 surface is cool, clean and rinser
•
Do not use oven cleaners, cleansing powders or
harsh abrasives such as steel wool pads on the
outside of the door.
25
Oven Bottom
Removable
Broiler Drawer
The oven bottom has a porcelain enamel finish+
To make cleaning easier, protect the oven bottom from
excessive spitlovers by placing a cookie sheet on the
shelf below the shelf you are cooking on, You can use
aluminum foil if you do not cover the whole shelf+ This is
particularly important when baking a fruit pie or other
foods with a high acid content Hot fruit fillings or other
foods that are highly acidic (such as tomatoes, sauerkraut
and sauces with vinegar or lemon juice) may cause
pitting and damage to the porcelain enamel surface and
should be wiped up immediately
To remove:
If a spillover does occur on the oven bottom, allow
the oven to cool first_ Remove the oven bottom for easier
raised position as you slide it partway into the range.
Then lower the drawer and push it completely closed,
1. When the broiler is cool, remove the grid and pan+
2. Pull the broiler drawer out until it stops, then push it
back in about one inch
3. Grasp the handle, lift and
pull the broiler drawer out,,
Clean the broiler drawer with
hot, soapy water.,
To replace:
Hold the broiler drawer in the
clean-up and to prevent damage to the continuous
cleaning oven coating (on some models),
Frequent wipings with mild soap and water (particularly
after cooking meat) will prolong the time between major
cleanings,, Rinse thoroughly° Soap left on the oven bottom
can cause stains
For heavy soil, use an abrasive cleaner or a soap-filled
steel wool pad,, A commercial oven cleaner may also be
used, following the package directions.
26
Special Care
Oven Interior
of the Continuous
To Clean the Continuous
Cleaning
Cleaning Oven:
1o Let range parts cool before handling. We recommend
rubber gloves be worn when cleaning..
2, Remove shelves and cookware.
(on some models)
The special coating is a porous ceramic material,
which is dark in color and feels slightly rough to
the touch.
3. Soil visibility may be reduced by operating the oven
at 400°F (204°C). Close the door and turn OVEN
TEMP knob to 400°F (204°C).. Time for at least four
hours. Repeated cycles may be necessary before
improvement in appearance is apparent..
The continuous cleaning oven cleans itself while
cooking. The oven walls are finished with a special
coating that cannot be cleaned in the usual manner
with soap, detergents, steel wool pads, commercial
oven cleaners, coarse abrasive pads or coarse brushes.
Use of such cleansers and/or the use of oven sprays
will cause permanent damage.
Remember; During the operation of the oven, the
door and other range surfaces will get hot enough
to cause burns, Do not touch, Let the range cool
before replacing the oven shelves,
4. If a spiltover or heavy soiling occurs on the porous
surface, as soon as the oven has cooled, remove as
much of the soil as possible using a small amount of
water and a stiff-bristle nylon brush Use water
sparingly and change it frequently, keeping it as clean
as possible, and be sure to blot it up with paper towels,
cloths or sponges. Do not rub or scrub with paper
towels, cloths or sponges, since they will leave
unsightly lint on the oven finish. If water leaves a white
ring on the finish as it dries, apply water again and
blot it with a clean sponge, starting at the edge of the
ring and working toward the center..
If magnified, the surface would appear as peaks, valleys
and sub-surface "tunnels1" This rough finish tends to
prevent grease spatters from forming little beads or
droplets that run down the side walls of a hard-surface
oven liner, leaving unsightly streaks that require hand
cleaning.. Instead, when spatter hits the porous finish,
it is dispersed and partially absorbed This spreading
action increases the exposure of oven soil to heated air
and makes it somewhat less noticeable..
Soil may not disappear completely and at some time
after extended usage, stains may appear that cannot
be removed.
The oven bottom has a porcelain enamel finish.
The oven bottom comes out for cleaning away from the
continuous cleaning oven.,
'The special coating works best on small amounts of
spatter, it does not work well with larger spills, especially
sugars, egg or dairy mixtures.. The oven bottom does not
have the continuous cleaning oven coating and can be
removed and cleaned with a commercial oven cleaner.
The inside of the oven door has a porcelain enamel
finish. The oven door lifts off for cleaning away from the
continuous cleaning oven.. For instructions on how to
clean the inside of the oven door refer to the Lift_Off
Oven Door section.
This special coating is not used on the oven shelves,
oven bottom or the inside of the oven door. Remove
these to clean with a commercial oven cleaner to prevent
damaging the continuous cleaning oven coating.
Do not use soap, detergent, steel wool pads,
commercial oven cleaners, silicone oven sprays,
coarse pads or coarse brushes on the porous
surface. These products will spot, clog and damage
the porous surface and reduce its ability to work°
Make sure the oven bottom is in place before you
turn the oven on for any reason.
Use care in removing and replacing the oven bottom
and shelves and in placing and removing dishes and
food to avoid scratching, rubbing or otherwise damaging
the porous finish on the oven walls.
Do not scrape the porous surface with a knife or
spatula--they
could permanently damage the finish.

vinyl or carpeting. Use care when moving the range on
this type of flooring. It is recommended that the following
simple and inexpensive instructions be followed to protect
your floor..
All ranges can tip and injury could
result° To prevent accidental tipping
of the range, attach an approved
Anti-Tip device to the wall and floor..
(See Installing the Anti-Tip Device
in this section.)
The range should be installed on a sheet of plywood
(or similar material), When the floor covering ends at
the front of the range, the area that the range will rest
on should be built up with plywood to the same level or
higher than the floor covering. This will allow the range
to be moved for cleaning or servicing.
To check if the device is installed and
engaged properly, remove the broiler
drawer and inspect the rear leveling lego

A word about GFCI's - GFCI's are not required or
recommended for gas range receptacles.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI's) are devices that
sense leakage of current in a circuit and automatically
switch off power when a threshold leakage level is
detected.. These devices must be manually reset by the
consumer.. The National Electrical Code requires the use of
GFCI's in kitchen receptacles installed to serve countertop
surfaces. Performance of the range wil! not be affected if
operated on a GFCl-protected circuit but occasional
nuisance tripping of the GFCI breaker is possible.

An adapter may be used only on a 15-amp circuit. Do not
use an adapter on a 20-amp circuit.. Where local codes
permit, a TEMPORARY CONNECTION may be made to
a properly grounded two-prong wall receptacle by the use
of a UL-listed adapter, available at most hardware stores_
The larger slot in the adapter must be aligned with the
larger slot in the wall receptacle to provide proper polarity
in the connection of the power cord..
