that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line surface
burner pans, or oven bottom, except as suggested in this
manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk
of electric shock, or fire.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils
are suitable for cooktop service without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s
recommendations for cooktop use.
• Use Care When Opening Oven Door or Warmer Drawer—
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 below 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.
• 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.
• Cold temperatures can damage the electronic control. When
using the appliance for the first time, or when the appliance
has not been used for an extended period of time, be certain
the unit has been in temperatures above 32°F (0°C) for at least
3 hours before turning on the power to the appliance.
• 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. Refer to the range manufacturer’s instructions
for cleaning.
• 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.
• Do Not Leave Children Alone—Children should not be
left alone or unattended in the area where appliance is
in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any
part of the appliance.
SURFACES OF THE OVEN. Both surface and oven burners
may be hot even though flames are not visible. Areas near
surface burners 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 cook top,
surfaces facing the cook top, 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.
• 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
potholders touch hot heating burners. Do not use a towel or
other bulky cloth instead of a potholder.
• Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers—Buildup of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in
• Remove the oven door from any unused range if it is to
be stored or discarded.
attempt to operate the oven during a power failure. If the power
fails, always turn off the oven. If the oven is not turned off and
the power resumes, the oven will begin to operate again. Once
the power resumes, reset the clock and oven function.
Use Proper Flame Size—Adjust flame size
so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil. The use
of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame
to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper
relationship of utensil to flame will also improve efficiency.
• Know which knob controls each surface burner. Place a
pan of food on the burner before turning it on, and turn the
burner off before removing the pan.
•Always turn knob to the full LITE position when igniting
top burners. Visually check that burner has lit. Then adjust
the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not
Extend Over Adjacent Surface Burners—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 burners.
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.
Setting Surface Controls
Do not place plastic
items such as salt and pepper
shakers, spoon holders or plastic
wrappings on top of the range when
it is in use. These items could melt or
ignite. Potholders, towels or wood
spoons could catch fire if placed too
close to a flame.
In the event of an electrical power
outage, the surface burners can be lit
manually. To light a surface burner, hold
a lit match to the burner head, then
slowly turn the Surface Control knob to
LITE. After burner lights push in and turn
knob to desired setting. Use CAUTION
when lighting surface burners manually.
Setting Surface Controls
Your range may be equipped with different sized surface burners. The ability to
heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as the burner size increases.
The simmer burner (if equipped) is best used for simmering delicate sauces,
etc. The standard burners can be used for most surface cooking needs. The
Power Plus™ burners (if equipped) are best used for bringing large quantities
of liquid to temperature and when preparing larger quantities of food.
Regardless of size, always select cookware that is suitable for the amount and
type of food being prepared. Select a burner and flame size appropriate to the
pan. Never allow flames to extend beyond the outer edge of the pan.
Each burner lights automatically from an electric ignitor each time a control
knob is turned to the LITE position.
Operating the Surface Burners
1. Place cooking utensil on surface burner.
2. Push the surface control knob in and turn counterclockwise out of the
OFF position.
3. Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position. Note: All four electronic
surface ignitors will spark at the same time. However, only the burner you
are turning on will ignite.
3. Visually check that the burner has lit.
4. Push the control knob in and turn counterclockwise to the desired flame
size. The control knobs do not have to be set at a particular setting. Use
the guides and adjust the flame as needed. DO NOT cook with the surface
control knob in the LITE position. (The electronic ignitor will continue to
spark if the knob is left in the LITE position.)
Setting Proper Surface Burner Flame Size
Never extend the flame beyond the outer
edge of the utensil. A higher flame
simply wastes heat and energy, and
increases your risk of being being burned
by the flame.
For most cooking: Start on the highest control setting and then turn to a
lower one to complete the process. Use the recommendations below as a
guide for determining proper flame size for various types of cooking. The size
and type of utensil used and the amount of food being cooked will influence the
setting needed for cooking.
For deep fat frying: Use a thermometer & adjust the surface control knob
accordingly. If the fat is too cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy. If
the fat is too hot, the food will brown so quickly that the center will be
undercooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the food
will neither brown nor cook properly.
*Flame Size
High Flame
Medium Flame
Low Flame
Type of Cooking
Start most foods; bring water to a boil; pan broiling.
Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces, gravies; steaming.
Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.
*These settings are based on using medium-weight metal or aluminum
cookware with lids. Settings may vary when using other types of
cookware. The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. A
good flame is clear, blue & nearly invisible in a well-lighted room. Each cone of
flame should be steady & sharp. Adjust or clean burner if flame is yelloworange.
Before Setting Oven Controls
Oven Vent Location
The oven vent is located below the backguard. When the oven is on, warm air is
released through this vent. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven
and good baking results. DO NOT BLOCK THE OVEN VENT.

General Care & Cleaning
Cleaning the Cooktop
The cooktop is designed to make cleaning easier. Since the four burners are sealed, cleanups are easy when spillovers
are cleaned up immediately. To clean, wipe with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry. DO NOT attempt to clean the cooktop
when the cooktop or burner heads are still hot. The contoured well areas and burner drip pans (some models) should be
routinely cleaned. Keeping the burner head ports and slots clean will prevent improper ignition and an uneven flame. Refer
to the following sections for further instructions.
DO NOT attempt to clean the cooktop when
the cooktop or burner heads are still hot. Touching hot
cooktop areas, burner grates and burner caps can cause
Any additions, changes or conversions
required in order for this appliance to satisfactorily meet the
application needs must be made by an authorized
Electrolux Distributor or Qualified Agency.
To clean the burner head ignition ports - Each burner head has a small
ignition port located as illustrated. Should you experience ignition problems it
may be that this port hole is partially blocked with soil. With the burner head in
place, use a small wire gauge needle or the end of a paper clip to clear the
ignition port.
To Clean the Surface Burner Heads - For proper gas flow it may be necessary
to clean the burner head and slots. To clean, first use a clean DAMP cloth to
soak up any spills. Remove any food from between the burner slots using a small
non-abrasive brush like a toothbrush and afterwards wipe up using a damp cloth.
For stubborn soils located in the slots, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean
the slots.

knee. Insert the door channels at the bottom of door over the door hinges,
(See Fig. 3).
3. Allow the door to slide down into the door hinges evenly at the same 45
degree angle. The hinge arms should be inserted into the bottom corners as
far as they can go.
4. Open door completely (horizontal with floor) and remove both screws from
holes in door hinges.
5. Reinstall the 2 screws into the door liner (See C Fig. 2).
6. If the door is not in alignment with the oven frame, remove door and repeat the
above steps.
Changing the Oven Light (some models)
On some models, the oven light automatically turns on when the door is opened.
Some models have a switch located on the control panel to turn on the light. The
oven light is located at the rear of the oven.
replace the oven light:
Turn electrical power off at the main source or unplug the range.
Replace bulb with a new 40 watt appliance bulb.
Turn power back on again at the main source (or plug the range back in).
The clock will then need to be reset. To reset, see “Setting the Clock” and
“Setting the Minute Timer” under Setting Oven Controls in this Use & Care
Be sure the range is unplugged and all parts are COOL before
replacing oven light. Wear a leather-faced glove for protection against possible
broken glass.
Before You Call
Solutions to Common Problems
Before you call for service, review the following list. It may save you time & expense. The list includes common occurrences
(shown in bold) that are not the result of defective workmanship or materials in this appliance. The possible corrections to these
problems are provided with the problem listed:
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 oven rack is level. (2) Be sure
floor is level, strong & stable enough to adequately support
range. (3) If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to
correct the situation. (4) Kitchen cabinet alignment may make
range appear not level. Be sure cabinets are square & have
sufficient room for range clearance.
Poor baking results - Many factors affect baking results. Make
sure the proper oven rack position is used. Center food in the
oven & 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
Oven light does not work (some models) - Replace or tighten bulb.
See Changing Oven Light section in this Use & Care Manual.
Cannot move appliance easily. Appliance must be accessible
for service - (1) Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly.
Contact builder or installer to make appliance accessible. (2)
Carpet interferes with range. Provide sufficient space so range
can be lifted over carpet.
Surface Burners do not light - (1) Surface Control knob was
not completely turned to LITE. Push in & turn the Surface
Control knob to LITE until burner ignites and then turn control
knob to desired flame size. (2) Burner ports are clogged. With
the burner OFF, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean
ports. See “Cleaning the Contoured Well Areas, Burner Caps,
Head & Drip Pans” in the General Care & Cleaning section for
additional cleaning instructions. (3) Range power cord is
disconnected from outlet (electric ignition models only). Be
sure power cord is securely plugged into the outlet. (4)
Electrical power outage (electric ignition models only). Burners
can be lit manually. See section on Setting Surface Controls.
Oven smokes excessively during broiling - (1) Control(s) not
set properly. Follow Broil instructions under Setting Oven
Controls. (2) Broiler Drawer is open. The Broiler Drawer should
be closed while broiling. (3) Meat too close to the broil element.
Reposition the broil rack to provide proper clearance between
the meat & the element. Preheat the broil element for searing.
(4) Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat.
Cut remaining fatty edges to prevent curling, but do not cut into
lean. (5) Insert on broiler pan wrong side up & grease not
draining. Always place grid on the broiler pan with ribs up &
slots down to allow grease to drip into pan (some models). (6)
Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is
necessary when broiling frequently. Old grease or food spatters
cause excessive smoking.
Flames inside oven or smoking from oven vent - Excessive
spillovers in oven. This will especially be the case for pie
spillovers or large amounts of grease on the oven bottom. Wipe
up excessive spillovers before starting oven. If flames or
excessive smoke are present see “To Broil” in the Setting Oven
Controls section.
Surface burner flame burns only part way around burner cap
- (1) Burner ports are clogged. With the gas burner OFF, clean
ports with a small-gauge wire or needle. (2) Moisture is
present after cleaning. Lightly fan the flame & allow burner to
operate until flame is full. Dry the burners thoroughly following
the instructions under “Cleaning the Contoured Well Areas,
Burner Caps, Head & Drip Pans” in the General Care &
Cleaning section.
Oven control beeps & displays any F code error (for example
F11; some models) - Electronic control has detected a fault
condition. Press CLEAR/OFF to clear the display & stop
beeping. Try the Bake or Broil function again. If the F code error
repeats, remove power suppy to appliance, wait 5 minutes and
then repower the appliance and set clock time of day. Try the
Bake or Broil function again. If the fault recurs, record fault
number, press CLEAR/OFF & contact an authorized service
Surface burner flame is orange - (1) Dust particles in gas main
line. Allow the gas burner to operate a few minutes until flame turns
blue in color. (2) In coastal areas a slightly orange flame may be
unavoidable due to salt in air.
Oven does not operate - (1) Be sure the oven controls are set
properly for the desired function. See Setting Oven Controls in
this Use & Care Manual or read the instructions for “Entire
appliance does not operate” listed below. (2) Be sure the Gas
Regulator Valve is in the “ON” position. Refer to the Installation
Instructions to for more information.

fault condition. Press CLEAR/OFF to clear the display & stop
beeping. Reprogram oven. If fault recurs, record fault number.
Press CLEAR/OFF & contact your authorized service agent.
Poor baking results - Many factors affect baking results. Make
sure the proper oven rack position is used. Center food in the
oven & 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 Your
Oven Temperature in this Use & Care Manual (some models).
Entire appliance does not operate - (1) The time of day is not
set. The time of day must first be set in order to operate the
