IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
COOKTOP
•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.
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 o 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.
•Never Leave Surface Burners Unattended at High Heat
Settings—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 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.
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 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.
SELF CLEANING OVENS
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
OVEN
•Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts listed in this
Owner’s Guide. Before self cleaning the oven, remove the
broiler pan and any utensils or foods from the oven.
•Do Not Use Oven Cleaners—No commercial oven cleaner or
oven liner protective coating of any kind should be used in or
around any part of the oven.
•Do Not Clean Door Gasket—The door gasket is essential for a
good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or move the
gasket.
•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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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. Press
at any time during the self-clean cycle to review
remaining cleaning time.
When the Self-Clean Cycle is Completed (Figure 2)
1. The time of day will appear in the display window and 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.
Stopping or Interrupting a Self-Cleaning Cycle (Figure 1 or 2)
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a self-cleaning cycle due to excessive
smoke or fire:
1. Turn Temperature Control Knob to OFF.
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.
3. Correct the condition which caused the smoking.
4. Restart the self-cleaning cycle once all conditions have been corrected.

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

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 burner—DO 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.

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.

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.
