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. Use Proper Flame SizeAdjust 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 o the utensil. Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface BurnersTo 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. Never Leave Surface Burners Unattended at High Heat SettingsBoilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt. Protective LinersDo 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 UtensilsOnly 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 manufacturers recommendations for cooktop use. IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR RANGE 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 hood manufacturers instructions for cleaning. Kitchen cleaners and aerosolsAlways follow the manufacturers recommended directions for use. Be aware that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing damage and injury. SELF CLEANING OVENS IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts listed in this Owners Guide. Before self cleaning the oven, remove the broiler pan and any utensils or foods from the oven. Do Not Use Oven CleanersNo commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind should be used in or around any part of the oven. Do Not Clean Door GasketThe door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or move the gasket. 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. Grounding Instructions (electric ignition models only) Avoid fire hazard or electrical shock. Do not use an adapter plug, an extension cord, or remove grounding prong from electrical power cord. Failure to follow this warning can cause serious injury, fire or death. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS This appliance is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug for your protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded receptacle. DO NOT cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug. For personal safety, the range must be properly grounded. For maximum safety, the power cord must be plugged into an electrical outlet that is correctly polarized and properly grounded. DO NOT Operate the range using a 2-prong adapter or an extension cord. If a 2-prong wall receptacle is the only available outlet, it is the personal responsibility of the consumer to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician. See the INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS packaged with this range for complete installation and grounding instructions. 4 Control Pad Functions READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE OVEN.

Within 5 seconds, push and hold or until the correct time of day appears in the display. Note: The clock cannot be changed during any timed bake or self-clean cycle. To Set the Minute Timer 1. Push . 2. Push to increase the time in one minute increments. Push and hold to increase the time in 10 minute increments. The timer can be set for any amount of time from 1 minute to 11 hours and 59 minutes. Note: If you push first, the timer will advance to 11 hours and 59 minutes. 3. The display shows the timer count down in minutes until one minute remains. Then the display will count down in seconds. 4. When the set time has run out, the timer will beep 3 times. It will then continue to beep 3 times every 60 seconds until is pushed. Note: The minute timer does not start or stop cooking. It serves as an extra timer in the kitchen that will beep when the set time has run out. The minute timer can be used alone or during any of the other oven functions. When the minute timer is in use with any other mode, the minute timer will be shown in the display. To view other functions, push the function pad for that mode. To Change the Minute Timer while it is in use: While the timer is active and shows in the display, push and hold to increase or decrease the time. To Cancel the Minute Timer before the set time has run out: Push . 6 or 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 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 chart 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 and 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; steam Keep foods cooking; poach; stew *These settings are based on using medium-weight aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using other types of pans. Proper Burner Adjustments The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue and hardly visible in a well-lighted room. Each cone of flame should be steady and sharply defined. Adjust or clean burner if flame is yelloworange. To clean burner, see instructions under General Cleaning. Setting Surface Controls Your range is equipped with 4 standard burners, 2 standard and 2 large burners, or 3 standard and 1 large burner. Regardless of size, always select a utensil 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. The surface control knob shown below may not look identical to the surface control knobs on your range; it is only representational. For models equipped with the large burners, the larger burner is best used when bringing large quantities of liquid to temperature and when preparing larger quantities of food. Each burner lights automatically from an electric ignitor each time a control knob is turned to the LITE position. To operate the surface burner: 1. Place cooking utensil on 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 ignitors will click 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 mark. 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 click if left in the LITE position.) 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. Use caution when lighting surface burners manually. 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. 7 Setting Warmer Drawer Controls (if equipped) Use the warmer drawer to keep hot foods hot such as: vegetables, gravies, meats, casseroles, biscuits and rolls, pastries and heated dinner plates. Arranging Warmer Drawer Rack Positions The rack can be used in 2 ways: In the upright position to allow low profile food items to be placed both under and on top of the rack (for example, rolls or biscuits on top of the rack and a casserole dish under). In the downward position to allow you to place light weight food items and empty dishware (for example, rolls or pastries and dinner plates). Set the warmer drawer rack as shown below. The warmer drawer is equipped with a catch which may require extra force when opening and closing the drawer. To Operate the Warmer Drawer Your range is equipped with a warmer drawer. The purpose of the warmer drawer is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food in the warmer drawer. All food placed in the warmer drawer should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain quality. Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the drawer and be very difficult to clean. Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven use in the warmer drawer. Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from the warmer drawer as cookware and plates will be hot. Warmer Drawer Recommended Food Settings Chart Food Item Roasts (Beef, Pork, Lamb) Pork Chops Bacon Hamburger Patties Poultry Gravies Casseroles Eggs Fried Foods Vegetables Pizza Biscuits Rolls, soft Rolls, hard Pastries Empty Dinner Plates Setting MED HI HI HI HI MED MED MED HI MED HI MED LO MED MED LO To Set the Thermostat Control The thermostat control is used to select the temperature of the warmer drawer. It is located on the control panel. To set the thermostat, push in and turn the knob to the desired setting. The temperatures are approximate, and are designated by HI, MED and LO. 1. Turn the knob to select the desired temperature setting. 2. For best results, preheat the drawer before adding food. An empty drawer will preheat in approximately 15 minutes. 3. When done, turn the thermostat control to OFF. Temperature Selection Refer to the chart in the side column for recommended settings. If a particular food is not listed, start with the medium setting. If more crispness is desired, remove the lid or aluminum foil. Most foods can be kept at serving temperatures by using the medium setting. When a combination of foods are to be kept warm (for instance, a meat with 2 vegetables and rolls), use the high setting. Refrain from opening the warmer drawer while in use to eliminate loss of heat from the drawer. Indicator Light The indicator light is located below the thermostat control. It turns on when the control is set, and stays on until the control is turned off. The warmer drawer is inoperable during the self-clean cycle. The indicator light will not come on during the self-clean cycle. 8 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 the vents. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good baking results. Arranging Oven Racks (Some models may have one rack.) ALWAYS ARRANGE OVEN RACKS WHEN THE OVEN IS COOL (PRIOR TO OPERATING THE OVEN). Always use oven mitts when using the oven. REMOVING & REPLACING OVEN ARRANGING OVEN RACKS WITH 5 RACKS RACK POSITIONS To remove, pull the rack forward until To bake on 1 rack, place the rack on it stops.

When broiling is finished, turn Temperature Control Knob to OFF. Should an oven fire occur, leave the oven door closed and turn off the oven. If the fire continues, use a fire extinguisher. DO NOT put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive. 11 Oven Cleaning Figure 2 Figure 1 During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the range can become very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave small children unattended near the appliance. DO NOT line the oven walls, racks, bottom or any other part of the range with aluminum foil. Doing so will destroy heat distribution, produce poor baking results and cause permanent damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil will melt to the interior surface of the oven). Self-Cleaning Oven A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking temperatures) which eliminate soil completely or reduce it to a fine powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth. 1. Adhere to the following cleaning precautions: Allow the oven to cool before precleaning. Wear rubber gloves when precleaning and while wiping up the residue after the self-clean cycle. DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any part of the self-cleaning oven. DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The woven material of the oven door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or remove the gasket. DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so could cause damage. 2. Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils and any aluminum foil. These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures. 3. Oven racks may be left in the oven or may be removed. If they go through the clean cycle their color will turn slightly blue and the finish will be dull. After the cycle is complete and the oven has cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of baby oil or salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack position). 4. Remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the selfcleaning cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. DO NOT allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning. 5. Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door gasket and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. These areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water. DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution when opening the door after the self-cleaning cycle is completed. The oven may still be VERY HOT. 12 Oven Cleaning (continued) Figure 1 Figure 2 To Start the Self-Clean Cycle (Figure 1) The oven is programmed to run a 3 hour self-clean cycle. 1. Be sure the oven door is closed. 2. Turn Temperature Control Knob to CLEAN. 3. Push . 4. If the door is left open, the "LOCK" indicator light will flash, but the lock motor and clean cycle will not start. As soon as the controls are set and the door is closed, the motor driven lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the lock to close). When the Self-Clean Cycle is Completed (Figure 1) 1. The "LOCK" indicator light will continue to glow. 2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" indicator light has gone completely out (and is not flashing), the oven door can be opened. To Start the Self-Clean Cycle (Figure 2) The oven can be programmed to run a 2 or 3 hour self-clean cycle. We recommend a 2 hour self-clean cycle for light soils and a 3 hour cycle for average to heavy soils (to assure satisfactory results). Note: If the oven is set to bake or broil, and then the Temperature Control Knob is set to CLEAN, it will not start the clean cycle until START is pressed again. To Set the Controls: 1. Be sure the oven door is closed. 2. Turn Temperature Control Knob to CLEAN. 3. Push . "3:00" will appear in the display. (The oven will automatically program a 3 hour clean cycle.) Use care when opening the oven door after the self-cleaning cycle. Stand to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow hot air or steam to escape. DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution when opening the door after the self-cleaning cycle is completed. The oven may still be VERY HOT. 4. If you want a 2 hour clean cycle, press . "2:00" will appear in the display. 5. If the door is left open, the "LOCK" indicator light will flash and "dr" will glow in the display, but the lock motor and clean cycle will not start. As soon as the controls are set and the door is closed, the motor driven lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. "CLn" will appear and remain in the display until the cleaning cycle is completed or cancelled. DO NOT open the door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the lock to close). 6.

Dry with a clean cloth. Glass, Painted and Plastic Body Parts, Control Knobs and Decorative Trim Pieces For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils and builtup grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on soil for 30 to 60 minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners on any of these materials; they can scratch. Control Panels Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls to OFF and remove the control knobs. To remove, pull each knob straight off the shaft. Clean as instructed above. Squeeze excess water from the cloth before wiping the panel; especially when wiping around the controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the appliance. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft, then push the knob(s) into place. Porcelain Enamel Burner Grates, Cooktop Surface, Below Cooktop, Warmer Drawer, Door Liner and Oven Bottom Clean burner grates, broiler pan and insert in the dishwasher and dry upon removal. If soils are not removed, follow the cooktop cleaning instructions below. Before cleaning any part of the range, be sure all controls are turned OFF and the range is cool. Remove spillovers and heavy soiling as soon as possible. Regular cleanings will reduce the effort required for major cleanings later. Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1 solution of clean 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, 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 range top. Stainless Steel, Chrome Parts, Drip Pans Clean with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and a cloth. Cover stubborn spots with an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30-40 minutes. Rinse. Cleaners made especially for stainless steel are recommended. Be sure to rinse the cleaners as bluish stains may occur during heating and cannot be removed. Oven Racks Remove racks. See "Removing and Replacing Oven Racks" under Before Setting Oven Controls. Use a mild, abrasive cleaner, following manufacturer's instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry. After cleaning the racks, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of baby oil or salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack positions). The holes in the burners of your range must be kept clean at all times for proper ignition and a complete, even flame. Clean the burner holes routinely with a small gauge wire or needle and especially after bad spillovers which could clog these holes. Surface Burners - Sealed Burner Units - Burner Cap, Trim Ring (some models), Burner Pans (some models), and Burner Base The holes in the burners of your range must be kept clean at all times for proper ignition and a complete, even flame. Clean the burner holes routinely with a small gauge wire or needle and especially after bad spillovers which could clog these holes. Oven Door To clean oven door, wash with hot, soapy water and a clean cloth. DO NOT immerse the door in water. To remove, clean and replace sealed burner units, follow the instructions under General Cleaning. DO NOT put burner units in the dishwasher. DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The woven material of the oven door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or remove the gasket. 14 General Cleaning (continued) Unlike the standard gas range, THIS COOKTOP IS NOT REMOVABLE. Do not attempt to remove or lift the cooktop. Note: The burner cap assembly refers to all parts of the sealed burner unit (burner cap, burner pan (some models), trim ring (some models), locating tab, burner base and electrode). To Clean the Cooktop The cooktop is designed to make cleaning easier. Because 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. To Clean the Contoured Well Areas, Burner Cap Assembly, Trim Ring (some models), Burner Pan (some models) and Burner Base The contoured well areas, burner cap assembly, trim ring (some models), burner pan (some models) and burner base should be routinely cleaned. Keeping the burner ports clean will prevent improper ignition and an uneven flame. See instructions below. To Clean the Contoured Well Areas The contoured well is a recessed area located around each burner unit. If a spill occurs in one of the four well areas, blot up spill with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry. To Remove the Burner Cap Assembly The burner cap assembly parts differ per model. Your assembly will consist of one of the following combinations: burner cap and trim ring; burner cap and burner pan; or burner cap, trim ring and burner pan. Remove in the following order: (1st) burner cap, (2nd) trim ring and (3rd) burner pan. Do not operate the burners without the burner cap assembly in place. To Clean the Burner Cap, Burner Pan (some models) and Trim Ring (some models) Use a soap-filled scouring pad or a mild abrasive cleanser to clean burner caps, trim rings and burner pans. To Clean the Burner Base and Gas Opening The ports (or slots) around the burner base must be routinely cleaned. Use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean small slots or holes.Use care to prevent damage to the electrode. If a cleaning cloth should catch the electrode, it could break or damage the electrode. If the electrode is damaged or broken, the surface burner will not light. For proper flow of gas and ignition of the burnerDO NOT ALLOW SPILLS, FOOD, CLEANING AGENTS OR ANY OTHER MATERIAL TO ENTER THE GAS OPENING. Gas must flow freely through the small hole in the brass orifice for the burners to light properly. If the orifice gas opening becomes soiled or clogged, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean. ALWAYS keep the burner cap assembly in place whenever a surface burner is in use. Use caution when replacing the burner cap so the electrode is not damaged. This may cause a delayed ignition or prevent the burner from igniting. Any additions, changes or conversions required in order for this appliance to satisfactorily meet the application needs must be made by an authorized Frigidaire Distributor or Qualified Agency. To Replace the Burner Cap Assembly Make sure the burner cap assembly is thoroughly dry before placing back on the burner. 1. Lower burner pan (some models) into place around the burner base. 2. Replace trim ring (some models). 3. Find the locating tabs on the burner cap and place in the locating slots in the burner base. Make sure each burner cap is properly aligned and level. 4. Turn the burner on to determine if it will light. If the burner does not light after cleaning, contact an authorized servicer. Do not service the sealed burner yourself. 15 General Cleaning (continued) The door is heavy. For safe, temporary storage, lay the door flat with the inside of the door facing down. To Remove and Replace Oven Door To Remove Oven Door: 1. Open the door. 2. Remove screws located on the inside of the oven door near the hinges A (one on each side.) 3. Close the door to the quarter-open position. Grasp the door firmly on both sides and lift up and off the hinges. 4. To clean oven door, follow the instructions provided in the cleaning chart under General Cleaning To Replace Oven Door: 1. Be sure the hinge arms are in the quarter-open position. Be careful if pulling the hinges open by hand. The hinges may snap back against the oven frame and could pinch fingers. 2. Hold the door at the sides near the top. Insert the hinge arms into slots at the bottom of the door. 3. Hinge arms must go into the range slots evenly. The hinge arms should be inserted into the bottom corners of the door as far as they can go. 4. If the door is not in line with the oven frame, remove it and repeat the above steps. To Remove and Replace Warmer Drawer (if equipped) To Remove Warmer Drawer: Turn power off before removing the warmer drawer. 1. 2. Open the drawer to the fully opened position. 3. Locate glide lever on each side of drawer, pull up on the left glide lever and push down on the right glide lever (see figure 1). 5. Pull the drawer away from the range. To 1. 2. 3. Figure 1 Replace Warmer Drawer: Pull the bearing glides to the front of the chassis glide (see figure 2). Align the glide on each side of the drawer with the glide slots on the range. Push the drawer into the range until levers click (approximately 2). Pull the drawer open again to seat bearing glides into position. If you do not hear the levers click or the bearing glides do not feel seated remove the drawer and repeat steps 1 thru 3. This will minimize possible damage to the bearing glides. Electrical Shock Hazard can occur and result in serious injury or death. Disconnect appliance from electric power before cleaning and servicing the warmer drawer. Figure 2 16 Changing Oven Light (some models) Be sure the range is unplugged and all parts are COOL before replacing the oven light. Wear a leather-faced glove for protection against possible broken glass. To Change 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 and is covered with a glass shield held by a wire holder. The glass shield must be in place whenever the oven is in use. To 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Adjusting Oven Temperature Note: The adjustments made will not change the self-cleaning temperature. Figure 1 replace the oven light: Turn electrical power off at the main source or unplug the range. Press wire holder to one side to release the glass shield. Replace bulb with a new 40 watt appliance bulb. Replace glass shield over bulb and snap wire holder into place. Turn power back on again at the main source (or plug the range back in). The clock(if equipped) will then need to be reset. To reset, see Setting the Clock and Minute Timer in this Owner's Guide. The temperature in the oven has been set at the factory. When first using the oven, be sure to follow recipe times and temperatures. If you think the oven is too hot or too cool, the temperature in the oven can be adjusted. Before adjusting, test a recipe by using a temperature setting that is higher or lower than the recommended temperature. The baking results should help you to decide how much of an adjustment is needed. To Adjust Oven Temperature (Figure 1) 1. With the dial set to OFF, press and hold for 30 seconds until a single beep is heard. 2. Within 5 seconds, turn the Temperature Control Knob clockwise to either the High (HI) or Low (LO) Broil setting. Select High Broil (HI) to increase the temperature or Low Broil (LO) to decrease the temperature. 3. The temperature can be adjusted up or down 35°F, in 5°F steps, by pressing START. Adjust until the desired amount of offset is indicated by the indicator lights as follows: A flashing "OVEN" indicator light indicates a positive offset, while a flashing "LOCK" indicator light indicates a negative offset. The lights will flash once for each 5°F of offset. If no light is flashing, the oven control has the original factory calibration, and the offset is 0°F. Example: If the OVEN indicator light is flashing three times and then pauses, the offset is +15°F. 4. When you have made the desired adjustment, turn the Temperature Control Knob to OFF. Figure 2 To Adjust Oven Temperature (Figure 2) 1. With the dial set to OFF, press and hold for 30 seconds until a single beep is heard. 2. Within 5 seconds, turn the Temperature Control Knob clockwise to either the High Broil (HI) or Low Broil (LO) setting. 3. The display now indicates the amount of degrees offset between the original factory temperature setting and the current temperature setting. If the oven control has the original factory calibration, the display will read "00." 4. The temperature can now be adjusted up or down 35°F, in 5°F steps, by pushing and holding or . Adjust until the desired amount of offset appears in the display. 5. When you have made the desired adjustment, turn the Temperature Control Knob to OFF. 17 Avoid Service Checklist Before you call for service, review this list. It may save you time and expense. The list includes common occurrences that are not the result of defective workmanship or materials in this appliance. This oven is equipped with a state of the art electronic oven controller. Among its many features is a full time oven circuit diagnostics system. The controller constantly monitors its internal circuitry as well as several crucial oven circuits to insure they are all operating correctly. If at any time one of these systems fails, the controller will immediately stop operation, and beep continuously (flashing an error code of F1 or F3* in the display window, if equipped). OCCURRENCE Range is not level. POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION 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. Weak, unstable floor. Be sure floor is level and can adequately support range. Contact a carpenter to correct sagging or sloping floor. 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. Cabinets not square or are built in too tight. Contact a cabinet maker to correct the problem. Contact builder or installer to make appliance accessible. Carpeting interferes with range. Provide sufficient space so range can be lifted over carpet. Gas line is hard-plumbed. Have a flexible A.G.A./C.G.A. approved metal appliance connector installed. *Oven control beeps continuously with no indicator lights flashing. (If model is equipped with a display, F1 or F3 will show.) Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Turn the Temperature Control Knob to OFF, and disconnect the power to the range. Wait 30 seconds and reconnect the power. If fault recurs, disconnect the power and contact an authorized servicer. Surface burners do not light. Surface Control knob has not been completely turned to LITE. Push in and turn the Surface Control knob to LITE until burner ignites and then turn control knob to desired flame size.
