Important Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR COOKTOP
• Know which knob controls each surface heating unit. Place
a pan of food on the unit before turning it on, and turn the unit
off before removing the pan.
• Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped with one
or more surface units of different sizes. Select utensils having
flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating
element. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion
of the heating element to direct contact and may result in
ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to element
will also improve efficiency.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend
Over Adjacent Surface Elements—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 units.
• Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven
bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this
manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk
of electric shock, or fire.
SELF CLEANING OVENS
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts listed in this
Use & Care Manual. 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.
•The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes
given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any range. Move
birds to another well-ventilated room.
• Never Leave Surface Elements Unattended at High Heat
Settings—Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that
may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING
YOUR RANGE
• Do Not Immerse or Soak Removable Heating Elements—
Heating elements should never be immersed in water.
Heating elements clean themselves during normal operation.
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease
that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area near
each surface element. Do not allow grease to accumulate.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass, glass/
ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are
suitable for cook top service without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s
recommendations for cook top use.
• 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.
• When flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn the fan
on.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR OVEN
• Use Care When Opening Oven Door or Warmer Drawer (if
equipped)—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 under the left rear surface element if your model is
equipped with coil elements. The oven vent is located below
the backguard for models equipped with ceramic-glass cook
tops. 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.
• Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently—Grease should not be
allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter. Follow
manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
FOR CERAMIC-GLASS COOK TOP MODELS
• Do Not Cook on Broken Cook Top—If cook top should break,
cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken
cook top and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified
technician immediately.
• Clean Cook Top with Caution—If a wet sponge or cloth is
used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to avoid a
steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if
applied to a hot surface.
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.
READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
• 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.

About the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface
elements located below the surface of the glass.
The design of the ceramic cooktop outlines the
area of the surface element underneath. Make
sure the diameter of the pan matches the
diameter of the element outline on the cooktop
(See Fig 1). Heat is transferred up through the
surface of the cooktop to the cookware. Only
flat-bottom cookware should be used. The type
and size of cookware, the number of surface
elements in use and the settings, are all factors
that will affect the amount of heat that will
spread to areas beyond the surface elements.
The areas surrounding the elements may
become hot enough to cause burns.
Figure 1
About the Radiant Surface Elements
Left front
Left rear
Right rear
Right front
The element temperature rises gradually and
evenly. As the temperature rises, the element
will glow red. To maintain the selected setting,
the element will cycle on and off. The heating
element retains enough heat to provide a
uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle.
For efficient cooking, turn off the element
several minutes before cooking is complete.
This will allow residual heat to complete the
cooking process.
Locations of the Radiant Surface
Elements and Controls
NOTE: Please read detailed instructions for ceramic glass cooktop
cleaning in the Care & Cleaning section and Before You Call
checklist sections of this Use and Care Manual.
Your range is equipped with radiant surface
burners with 6 different wattage ratings. The
ability to heat food quicker and in larger volumes
increases as the element wattage increases.
The radiant surface elements are located on the
cooktop as follows (See Figure 2); a smaller 6
inch radiant element located at the right rear
position; a dual 6 or 9 inch radiant element
located at the right front position; a Warmer
Zone radiant element at the center rear position
(See page 12); and 2 (two) 8 inch radiant
elements located at both the left front and rear
positions. Located between left front and rear
elements is a Bridge radiant element.
NOTE: Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to
cycle on and off, even at the HI setting. This helps to prevent
damage to the ceramic smooth top. Cycling at the HI setting is
normal and can occur if the cookware is too small for the radiant
element or if the cookware bottom is not flat (Refer to page 11 for
using correct cookware instructions with the cooktop).
The BRIDGE radiant element is controlled using
the same knob that controls the left front radiant
element position. See pages 10 and 11 for more
information about using BRIDGE radiant
element.

Setting Surface Controls
The Electronic Surface Element Control (ESEC)
The Electronic Surface Element Control (“ESEC”) feature
includes 4 digital display windows. The ESEC feature provides
a numeric digital setting for 4 of the radiant surface element
positions on the cooktop, including shared settings at the left
front knob control position for both the left front radiant
element and the “Bridge” radiant element. Also the right front
control knob position shares settings for the dual radiant
element. These settings work the same way as normal knob
setting indicators work except the settings are displayed in
digital windows (Figures 1 thru 4).
The available ESEC Display Settings
The ESEC control provides various heat levels from Hi (Fig. 2)
to Lo (Fig. 4) and OFF (Fig. 1). The settings from Hi to 3.0
decrease in increments of .5. The settings from 3.0 to Lo
(Simmer settings) decrease in increments of .2 for more
precise settings of lower heat levels.
Figure 1
Figure 2
Figure 3
Figure 4
Use the chart (Fig. 5) to determine the correct setting for the
kind of food you are preparing. The Simmer settings are used
to simmer and keep larger quantities of foods warm such as
stews and soups. The lower Simmer settings are ideal for
delicate foods and melting chocolate or butter.
Note: The size and type of cookware used will influence the
setting needed for best cooking results.
Radiant surface elements may appear to have
cooled after they have been turned off. The glass surface
may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is
touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
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 wooden spoons could catch fire if
placed too close to the surface elements.

Setting Surface Controls
ESEC Hot Element Indicator Message (HE)
After using any of the single, dual or Bridge radiant element positions the cooktop will
become very hot. Even after turning the control knob to OFF, the cooktop will remain hot for
some time. The ESEC control monitors the temperature of the cooktop and displays the
message “HE” (hot element) warning when the cooktop is still too hot to touch (See Fig.1). If
the HE message appears in the window, the control can still be turned on again for use.
ESEC Error Indicator Message (Er)
An error message will be displayed (flashing “Er”) at power up (or after a power failure) if ANY
of the surface control knobs were left in the ON positions. If a power failure should occur, be
sure to set all of the 4 surface control knobs to the OFF position (See Fig. 2). This will reset
the surface controls.
Be sure to reset the clock (See page 16). Once the surface controls have been set to the
OFF positions and the clock has been set with the correct time of day, the surface controls
should return to normal operation. If the surface controls do not function and the “Er”
message remains in any display after following these procedures, contact an authorized
servicer for assistance.
Figure 1
ESEC Lockout Feature ( - - )
The self-clean feature will not operate whenever a radiant surface element is ON. Conversely
the ESEC feature will not operate during a self-clean cycle or when the Oven Lockout feature
is active. Whenever the ESEC Lockout feature is active, “ - - ” may appear in any display
window (See Fig. 3). If any of the surface elements are still hot during active Lockout, “HE”
will appear in the window instead of the “ - - ” message.
Figure 2
The Single Radiant Surface Elements
The cooktop has single radiant surface elements at 2 locations; the right rear (Fig. 5) and left
rear (Fig. 6) element positions. The BRIDGE element position can also be used as a single
element (See Bridge Element Operating Instructions on pages 10-11).
To Operate the Single Surface Elements:
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the radiant surface
element.
2. Push in and turn the surface control knob in either direction
to the desired setting using the ESEC digital display
window for the desired setting (Fig. 4). Turn (do not push)
the knob to adjust the setting if desired. Start most
cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to a
lower setting to finish cooking. Each surface element
provides a constant amount of heat at each setting. A
glowing red surface heating area extending beyond the
bottom edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is too
small for the surface heating area.
3. When cooking has completed, turn the surface control
knob to OFF before removing the cookware. Note: The HE
message will appear after turning the control knob to OFF
if the cooktop is still hot and will remain on until the heating
surface area has cooled sufficiently.

needed. Start most cooking operations on a higher setting
and then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking. Each
surface element provides a constant amount of heat at
each setting. A glowing red surface heating area extending
beyond the bottom edge of the cookware indicates the
cookware is too small for the surface heating area.
4. When cooking has completed, turn the surface control
knob to OFF before removing the cookware. Note: The
HE message will appear after turning the control knob to
OFF if the cooktop is still hot and will remain on until the
radiant heating surface area has cooled sufficiently. Note:
See page 8, Figure 5 for recommended control settings.
Radiant surface elements may appear to have
cooled after they have been turned off. The glass surface
may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is
touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
The Bridge Surface Radiant Element
The cooktop is equipped with a “BRIDGE” surface
element located at the left front and middle (See Fig. 10)
positions. The Bridge can be used when cooking with
rectangular (like a griddle) or oval shaped cookware (Fig.
10). The element will maintain an even temperature
setting across both portions of the Bridge. If needed for
normal cookware, the Bridge element can work like a
single element without the Bridge (See Fig. 8).
Bridge element operation symbols are located on the
control panel on each side of the Bridge element control
knob. These symbols indicate the direction to turn the
control knob when operating the Bridge element. The
symbol in Figure 7 indicates that only the single portion
of the Bridge element will heat (See Fig. 8). The symbol
in Figure 9 indicates that both the single and Bridge
portions of the element will heat together (Fig. 10). You
may switch from either of these settings at any time
during cooking with the Bridge element.

2. Push in and turn the control knob counterclockwise (See
Figs. 1 and 2) to heat the portion of the Bridge element for
normal shaped cookware or clockwise (See Figs. 3 and 4)
for larger or rectangular shaped cookware.
3. Use the ESEC digital display window for the desired
setting. Turn (do not push) the knob to adjust the setting if
needed. Start most cooking operations on a higher setting
and then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking. Each
surface element provides a constant amount of heat at
each setting. A glowing red surface heating area extending
beyond the bottom edge of the cookware indicates the
cookware is too small. Please note that not all cookware
will fit the Bridge element correctly.
4. When cooking has completed, turn the surface control
knob to OFF before removing the cookware. The HE
message will appear in the display after turning the control
knob to OFF if the cooktop is still hot and will remain on
until the radiant heating surface area has cooled
sufficiently.
The BRIDGE element may also be used in combination with
the left rear single element. Because these elements have 2
different controls, one element can be used to cook while the
other element may be used to keep food warm (See Fig. 5).
Radiant surface elements may appear to have
cooled after they have been turned off. The glass surface may
still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is
touched before it has cooled sufficiently.

Surface Cooking
Operating the Warming Zone
The purpose of the Warming Zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Use the Warming Zone to keep
cooked foods hot such as; vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and oven-safe dinner plates.
Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food on the Warming Zone.
All food placed on the Warming Zone should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to
maintain quality. For best results, when warming pastries or breads, the cover should have
an opening to allow moisture to escape. Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic
may melt onto the surface and be very difficult to clean. Use only plates, utensils and
cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use on the Warming Zone.
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when removing food from the Warming
Zone as cookware and plates will be hot.
To Set the Warming Zone Control:
1. To set the control, push in and turn the knob. The On indicator light will come on (See
Fig. 1 and 2). The temperatures are approximate, and are designated by HI, MED and
LO. However, the control can be set at any position between HI and LO for different
levels of heating (Fig.1).
2. When done, turn the control to OFF. The Warming Zone Hot surface indicator light
will remain on until the Warming Zone cools to a moderate level (See Fig. 1 and 2).
Temperature Selection
Refer to the table for recommended Warming Zone food settings (Fig. 3). If a particular food
is not listed, start with the medium level, and adjust as needed. Most foods can be kept at
serving temperatures by using the medium level.
Figure 1
The Warming Zone will not glow red when it is hot, but becomes hot enough
to cause burns. Avoid placing hands on or near the Warming Zone until the Warming Zone
Hot surface indicator light is off.

Before Setting Oven Controls
Arranging the Oven Racks
ALWAYS ARRANGE OVEN RACKS WHEN THE OVEN IS COOL (PRIOR TO
OPERATING THE OVEN). Always use oven mitts when the oven is hot.
Oven Vent Location
The oven vent is located below the
backguard. When the oven is on, hot
air is released through the vents. This
venting is necessary for proper air
circulation in the oven and good baking
results.
Removing and Replacing Oven
Racks
To remove, pull the rack forward until
it stops. Lift up front of rack and slide
out. To replace, fit the rack onto the
guides on the oven walls. Tilt the front
of the rack upward and slide the rack
back into place.
Arranging Oven Racks
To bake on a single rack, place the
rack in position 3 or 4. To bake on 2
racks, place the racks in positions 2
and 4. To bake on 3 racks, place the
racks in positions 1, 3 and 5. Use the
6th rack position (Roasting Shelf) for
roasting large food items only.
Air Circulation in the Oven
If using 1 rack, place in center of oven. If using multiple
racks, stagger cookware as shown.
1 Oven Rack
For best air circulation and baking results allow 2-4" (5-10 cm)
around the cookware for proper air circulation and be sure
pans and cookware do not touch each other, the oven door,
sides or back of the oven cavity. The hot air must circulate
around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat to
reach around the food.
Multiple Oven Racks

Setting Warming Drawer Controls
(some models)
Arranging Warming 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 underneath).
• In the downward position to allow you to place light weight food items
and empty cookware (for example, rolls or pastries and dinner plates) on
the rack.
Always use pot holders
or oven mitts when removing food from
the Warming Drawer as cookware and
plates will be hot and you can be
burned.
Set the Warming Drawer rack in either position as shown below (Fig. 1).
Figure 1
To Operate the Warming Drawer
The purpose of the Warming 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 Warming Drawer.
All food placed in the Warming 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
utensils and cookware recommended for oven use in the Warming Drawer.

To Set the Warming Drawer Control
The control is used to select the temperature of the Warming Drawer. It is
located on the control panel. To set the control, push in and turn the knob to
the desired setting. The temperatures are approximate, and are designated by
HI (high), MED (medium) and LO (low). To set the Warming Drawer control:
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 control to OFF.
Warming Drawer Temperature Selection
Recommended Warming Drawer food settings are shown in Figure 3. If a
particular food is not listed, start with the MED setting. If more crispness is
desired, remove the lid or aluminum foil from the food. Most foods can be kept
at serving temperatures on the MED setting. When a combination of foods are
to be kept warm (for example, a meat with 2 vegetables and rolls) use the HI
setting. To avoid heat loss, do not open the Warming Drawer while in use.
Warming Drawer Indicator Light
The Warming Drawer indicator light is located above the Warming Drawer
control knob (See Fig. 2). It turns on when the control is set, and stays on until
the control is turned off. The Warming Drawer will not operate during the
self-clean cycle.

Setting Convection Roast
The CONV ROAST
pad feature is used when cooking with meat. This pad has been designed to give optimum
cook performance for roasting meats.
The CONVECTION ROAST pad combines a cook cycle with the convection fan and element to roast meats and poultry.
Preheating is not necessary for meats and poultry. Heated air circulates around the food from all sides, sealing in juices and
flavors. Foods are crispy brown on the outside while staying moist on the inside.
INSTRUCTIONS

Convection Roasting Instructions
When using the Convection Roast pad, use the broiler pan and insert along with the
roasting rack. The broiler pan will catch grease spills and the insert will help prevent
grease spatters. The roasting rack will allow the heat to circulate around the meat.
To prevent food from contacting the broil element and to prevent grease
spattering, DO NOT use the roasting rack when broiling.
1. Place oven rack on bottom or next to the bottom rack position. See Arranging
Oven Racks in this Use & Care Manual.
2. Place the insert in the broiler pan. The roasting rack fits on the insert allowing the
heated air to circulate under the food for even cooking and helps to increase
browning on the underside. Make sure the roasting rack is securely seated on the
insert in the broiler pan . DO NOT use the broiler pan without the insert or cover the
insert with aluminum foil.
3. Position food (fat side up) on the roasting rack (See Fig. 4).
4. Place the broiler pan on the oven rack.

Air
circulation
during
Convection
Bake
Figure 1
Convection baking uses a fan to circulate the oven's heat evenly and
continuously within the oven (See Figure 1). This improved heat distribution
allows for fast, even cooking and browning results. It also gives better
baking results when using two (2) or three (3) racks at the same time.
Breads and pastries brown more evenly. Most foods cooked in a standard
oven will cook faster and more evenly with Convection Bake.
Note: The BAKE TIME
pad may be used to set timed or delayed
timed cooking with the CONV BAKE
pad (refer to page 22 steps 6-8).
Figure 2
General Convection Bake Instructions
1. When using Convection Bake, decrease your normal cooking times as shown on page 37. Adjust the cook time for
desired doneness as needed. Time reductions will vary depending on the amount and type of food to be cooked.
Cookies and biscuits should be baked on pans with no sides or very low sides to allow heated air to circulate around
the food. Food baked on pans with a dark finish will cook faster.
2. Preheating is not necessary when cooking casseroles with Convection Bake.
3. When using Convection Bake with a single rack, place oven rack in position 3 or 4. If cooking on multiple racks, place
the oven racks in positions 1, 3 and 5 (for 3 racks) and positions 2 and 4 (for 2 racks; See Fig. 2).
4. Layer cakes will have better results when baked with the normal Bake feature.

Self-Cleaning
Preparing for the Self-Clean Cycle
The health
of some birds is extremely
sensitive to the fumes
given off during the selfcleaning cycle of any
range. Move birds to
another well-ventilated
room.
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures which eliminate soil completely or
reduce it to a fine powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth. These temperatures
are well above normal cooking temperatures.
1. Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
• Allow the oven to cool before pre-cleaning.
• Wear rubber gloves when cleaning and while wiping up the residue after the selfclean 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 Searing Grill, Broiler Pan and Broiler Pan Insert, all utensils and any
aluminum foil. These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures.
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).
3. Oven racks should be removed, or else their finish will dull and their color turn slightly
blue. If they do go through the self-clean cycle, wait until the oven has cooled, then
remove the racks and rub their sides with wax paper or a cloth containing a small
amount of baby or salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier back into their
positions).
4. Remove any excess spill-overs in the oven cavity before starting the self-cleaning cycle.
To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spill-overs 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.
Figure 1
If at any time when setting the oven for the Self-Cleaning feature, the oven control
continuously beeps and the display shows “dr”; close the oven door (See Figure 1).
NOTE: Prior to setting the Self-Clean cycle, any spills remaining on the oven
bottom should be removed.
The bake element is designed to be tilted up using your hand from the front of
the bake element (See Fig. 2). This will allow easier access to the oven bottom
for cleaning. Be careful not to raise the element more than 4 or 5 inches from
the resting position.

Self-Cleaning
To Start Self-Clean Cycle
The CLEAN
pad controls the Self-Cleaning feature. If you are planning to use the oven directly after a self-clean
cycle remember to allow time for the oven to cool down and the oven door to unlock. This normally takes about one hour.
So to self-clean for 3 hours will actually take about 4 hours to complete.
*It is recommend to use a 2 hour self-clean cycle for light soils, a 3 hour cycle for average soils, and a 4 hour cycle for
heavy soils (to assure satisfactory results).
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; they may be burned if they touch the hot oven door surfaces.
DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system. 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. The oven may still be VERY HOT.

(Cleaning Chart)
Surfaces
How to Clean
Aluminum & Vinyl
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.
Painted and Plastic
Control Knobs, Body
Parts, and Decorative
Trim
For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils and built-up
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. To remove control knobs, turn to the OFF position; grasp
firmly and pull straight off the shaft. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides
of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.
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 using hot, soapy water and a
dishcloth. Rinse with a clean water using a dishcloth. Be sure to 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 into
place.
Stainless Steel, Chrome
Control Panel, Decorative
Trim
Clean stainless steel with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and a
cloth. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorines. Do not
use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for
cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners from the surface as bluish
stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
Porcelain Enamel Broiler
Pan and Insert, Door
Liner, Body Parts,
Warming Drawer
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1
solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with an ammoniasoaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp cloth, and
then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove
all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use
spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
Oven Racks
Oven racks should be removed from the oven during the self-clean cycle for cleaning.
When removed, clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following manufacturer's
instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry.
If the racks are cleaned in the self-clean cycle, their color will turn slightly blue and the
finish will be dull. After the self-clean 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 positions).
Oven Door
To clean oven door, wash with hot, soapy water and a clean cloth. DO NOT immerse the
door in water.
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The oven door gasket is made of a woven material,
on self cleaning models, which is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to
rub, damage or remove the gasket.
31
Care & Cleaning
Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop.
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply some of the cooktop cleaning cream supplied with your new range.
Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or pad (such as a 3M Scotch-Brite® Blue Multi-Purpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge). This
will make cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. The special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective finish on
the glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the cooktop can
cause metal markings on the cooktop surface. These marks
should be removed immediately after the cooktop has cooled
using the cooktop cleaning cream. Metal marks can become
permanent if not removed prior to future use.
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough bottoms
can mark or scratch the cooktop surface. Do not slide anything
metal or glass across the cooktop. Do not use your cooktop as a
cutting board or work surface in the kitchen. Do not cook foods
directly on the cooktop surface without a pan. Do not drop heavy
or hard objects on the glass cooktop, they may cause it to crack.
Cleaning Recommendations for the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and can
chemically damage the ceramic-glass surface.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of the cooktop cleaning cream (cleaner must be recommended for Ceramic cooktops) directly to
the cooktop. Use a paper towel or a 3M Scotch-Brite® Blue Multi-Purpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge to clean the entire
cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue.
For heavy, burned on soil:
Apply a few drops of the cooktop cleaning cream (cleaner must be recommended for Ceramic cooktops) directly to
the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a 3M Scotch-Brite® Blue Multi-Purpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge, applying
pressure as needed. Once the sponge has been used on the cooktop, do not use the sponge for any other purpose.
If soils remain, carefully scrape soils with a metal razor blade
scraper, holding scraper at a 30 degree angle to the surface. Remove
loosened soils with cooktop cleaner and buff surface clean.
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled or
melted onto the ceramic cooktop surface. Permanent damage (such
as pitting of the cooktop surface) may occur if not removed
immediately. After turning the surface elements OFF, use a razor
blade scraper or a metal spatula with a mitt and scrape the soil from
the hot surface (as illustrated). Allow the cooktop to cool, and use
the same method for heavy or burned on soils.
32
Care & Cleaning
Cleaning Recommendations for the Ceramic Glass Cooktop (cont’d)
Do not use the following on the ceramic glass cooktop:
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as metal and
some nylon pads. They may scratch the cooktop, making it more
difficult to clean.
• Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach, ammonia or oven
cleaners, as they may etch or discolor the cooktop.
• Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as they can leave
soil or lint on the cooktop which can burn and cause discoloration.
Note: Additional cooktop cleaning cream may be ordered by visiting the
Frigidaire website at www.frigidaire.com

Before You Call
Solutions to Common Problems
Before you call for service, review this list. It may save you time and expense. The list includes common occurrences
that are not the result of defective workmanship or materials in this appliance.
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION
Range is not level.
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 (See the Range Installation Instructions).
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.
Surface element too hot or not hot
enough.
Incorrect surface control setting. Make sure the correct control is set for the surface area you
wish to heat.
Surface element does not heat.
Light-weight or warped cookware was used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or
heavy-weight cookware. Flat pans heat much better than warped pans. Cookware materials
and weight of the material affect heating results. Heavy and medium-weight pans heat
evenly. Because light-weight pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily.
Oven does not operate.
No electrical power to the appliance. Check steps under Entire Appliance Does Not
Operate in this Before You Call checklist.
Be sure the oven controls are set correctly for the desired function. See the Setting Oven
Controls section or Entire Appliance Does Not Operate in this Before You Call checklist.
The clock must be set with the time of day in order to operate the oven.
Entire appliance does not operate.
Make sure electrical cord/plug is plugged tightly into outlet.
Service wiring is not complete. Contact a Servicer for assistance.

Electrical power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric company for
service.
Oven smokes excessively during
broiling.
Meat is too close to the broil element. Reposition the rack to provide more clearance
between the meat and the oven broil element.
Meat is not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Remove remaining fatty
edges to prevent the meat from curling, but do not cut into the lean of the meat.
Broiler Pan used without the Broiler Pan Insert or insert is covered with foil. DO NOT use the
Broiler Pan without the Broiler Pan Insert or cover the insert with foil.
Broiler Pan/Insert or grease build-up undeneath the 6th rack position. Clean grease from
