Important Safety Instructions
• Wear Proper Apparel—Loose-fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn while using the appliance. Do not let
clothing or other flammable materials contact hot surfaces.
• Do Not Use Water or Flour on Grease Fires—Smother the fire
with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
• When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or grease may
catch fire if allowed to become too hot.
• Use Only Dry Potholders—Moist or damp potholders on hot
surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholders
touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth
instead of a potholder.
• Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers—Buildup of pressure
may cause container to burst and result in injury.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
COOKTOP
Stepping, leaning or sitting on the doors or
drawers of this range can result in serious injuries and also
cause damage to the range. Do not allow children to climb or play
around the range. The weight of a child on an open door may
cause the range to tip, resulting in serious burns or other injury.
• 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.
• 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.
• Do Not Immerse or Soak Removable Heating Elements—
Heating elements should never be immersed in water. Heating
elements clean themselves during normal operation.
• 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.
• When flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn the fan on.
Do not use the oven or warmer drawer (if
equipped) for storage.
Do not store items of interest to children in the
cabinets above a range or on the backguard of a range. Children
climbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.
Never Use Your Appliance for Warming or Heating
the Room.
• Storage in or on Appliance—Flammable materials should not
be stored in an oven, warmer drawer, near surface units or in
the storage drawer. This includes paper, plastic and cloth items,
such as cookbooks, plasticware and towels, as well as flammable
liquids. Do not store explosives, such as aerosol cans, on or near
the range.
• Do Not Leave Children Alone—Children should not be left alone
or unattended in the area where appliance is in use. They
should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the
appliance.
• DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS, AREAS NEAR THESE UNITS,
HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF THE OVEN.
Both surface units and oven heating elements may be hot even
though they are dark in color. Areas near surface units may
become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not
touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials touch these
areas until they have had sufficient time to cool. Among these
areas are the cook top, surfaces facing the cook top, the oven vent
openings and surfaces near these openings, oven door and
window.

Important Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING
OVEN
YOUR RANGE
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently—Grease should not be
allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter. Follow
manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
COIL COOK TOP MODELS
• Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place—Absence
of these pans or bowls during cooking may subject wiring or
components underneath to damage.
• Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line surface unit
drip bowls, or reflector pans. Only use aluminum foil as
recommended in this manual. Improper installation of these
liners may result in risk of electric shock, or fire. Improper
installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or
fire.
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.
Before Setting Oven Controls
The Element ON Indicator Light
The Coil Cook Top range is equipped with a surface control light that will glow on your range—
the Element ON indicator light. The Element ON indicator light (all models) located on the
control panel, will glow when any surface element is turned ON. A quick glance at this light after
cooking is an easy check to be sure all surface controls are turned OFF.
Oven Vent Location
For models equipped with coil surface elements, the oven vent is located under the left
rear surface element. When the oven is on, warm air flows through the left rear
element. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good baking
results. DO NOT BLOCK THE OVEN VENT.

General Care & Cleaning
(Cleaning Chart cont’d)
Surfaces
How to Clean
Oven Racks
Remove racks. See "Removing & Replacing Oven Racks" under Before Setting Oven Controls. Use a
mild, abrasive cleaner, following the cleaner’s recommendations. Rinse with clean water & let 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 oven rack positions).
Oven Door
Use soap & water to thoroughly clean the top, sides & front of the oven door. Rinse well. You may use a
glass cleaner on the outside glass of the oven door. DO NOT immerse the door in water. DO NOT spray
or allow water or the glass cleaner to enter the door vents. DO NOT use oven cleaners, cleaning
powders or any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the outside of the oven door. 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 this gasket.
Stainless
Steel
Clean stainless steel with hot soapy water & a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and a cloth. DO NOT use
cleaners with high conecentrations 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 form the surface as bluish stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
Cleaning Recommendations for Coil Element Cooktop
Surface elements can be unplugged and removed to make cleaning the drip pans easier. The surface elements clean themselves
when they are turned on. Food spilled on a hot element will burn off. Food spilled on a cool element may be cleaned with a damp
cloth—any remaining soil will burn off the next time the element is used.
Never immerse a surface element in water.
Be sure the range is cool
before removing elements or drip bowls.
Be careful not to bend terminal ends when
replacing elements after cleaning.
Removing the Surface Elements & Drip Bowls
1. Lift the edge of the drip bowl across from the terminal end. Lift the surface
element & drip bowl together just enough to clear the cooktop.
2. While holding the drip bowl and surface element, gently pull the terminal end
out from the terminal plug. If equipped, DO NOT remove the hold down clip from
the drip bowl.
Cleaning the Drip Bowls
Wash in hot soapy water or in the dishwasher. Rinse & dry while still warm.
Hard to remove or burned on soil can be removed by soaking the drip bowls for
about 20 minutes in a lightly diluted liquid cleanser or a solution of ammonia &
water (1/2 cup ammonia to 1 gallon of water). A nylon scrubber may be used
after soaking. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or steel wool, as they will scratch
the surface. Always rinse with clean water & polish dry with a soft cloth.
When lowering the lift-up
range top, grasp the sides with finger-tips
only. Be careful not to pinch fingers. DO
NOT drop or bend the range top when
raising or lowering. This could damage
the surface.
Replacing Drip Bowls & Surface Elements
1. Slide the terminal end on the element through the opening in the drip bowl.
2. Align the element support to rest on the rim inside the drip bowl. If your drip
bowl is equipped with a hold down clip, align the element support opposite
the terminal end with the slot in the hold down clip & snap into place.
3. After the element is positioned in the drip bowl, line up the terminal end
with the terminal plug as shown.
4. Hold the surface element & drip bowl together as level as possible & firmly
push the terminal end into the terminal plug. Make sure element terminal is
seated properly into terminal plug. Make sure the surface element is level
to reduce the hazard of pans sliding off the element.
Raising the Top for Cleaning
1. Grasp the sides &lift from the front. Lift-up rods will support the top in a
raised position. Only lift the top far enough to allow the support rods to
snap into place.
2. Clean underneath using a clean cloth & hot soapy water.
3. To lower the top, gently push back on each rod to release the notched
support. Hold the range top and slide the lift rods down into the range
frame.

General Care & Cleaning
Cleaning the Oven Bottom
The bake element is designed to be gently tilted up using your hand from the front of
the bake element. 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.
Care & Cleaning of Stainless Steel
Some models are equipped with stainless steel exterior parts. Special care and
cleaning are required for maintaining the appearance of stainless parts. Please
refer to the Cleaning Chart provided at the beginning of the General Care &
Cleaning section in this Use & Care Manual.
The baking
element
may be tilted
about 4 or 5
inches to
clean the
oven
bottom.
Changing the Interior 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.
To replace the oven light:
1. Turn electrical power off at the main source or unplug the range.
2. Replace bulb with a new 40 watt appliance bulb.
3. Turn power back on again at the main source (or plug the range back in).
4. The clock will then need to be reset. To reset, see Setting Oven Controls in this Use &
Care Manual.
Be sure the range is unplugged and all parts are COOL before replacing oven
light. Wear a leather-faced glove for protection against possible broken glass.
Removing & Replacing the Oven Door

Before You Call
Solutions to Common Problems
Before you call for service, review the following list. It may save you time & expense. The list includes common occurrences
(shown in bold) that are not the result of defective workmanship or materials in this appliance. The possible corrections to these
problems are provided with the problem listed:
Range is not level - (1) Poor installation. Place oven rack in
center of oven. Place a level on the oven rack. Adjust leveling
legs at base of range until the oven rack is level. (2) Be sure
floor is level, strong & stable enough to adequately support
range. (3) If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to
correct the situation. (4) Kitchen cabinet alignment may make
range appear not level. Be sure cabinets are square & have
sufficient room for range clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily. Appliance must be accessible
for service - (1) Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly.
Contact builder or installer to make appliance accessible. (2)
Carpet interferes with range. Provide sufficient space so range
can be lifted over carpet.
Surface element too hot or not hot enough - Incorrect control
setting. Be sure the correct control is ON for the element to be
used.
Surface element does not heat - (1) Lightweight or warped
pans used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or
heavyweight cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped
pans. Cookware materials and weight of the material affect
heating. Heavy & medium-weight pans heat evenly. Because
lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily. (2) No
power to the appliance. Check steps under "Entire Appliance
Does Not Operate" in this checklist. (3) Incorrect control
setting. Make sure the correct control is ON for the surface
element to be used.
Entire appliance does not operate - (1) The time of day is not
set. The time of day must first be set in order to operate the
oven. See “To Set the Clock” in the Setting Oven Controls
section.(2) Make sure cord/plug is plugged correctly into outlet.
(3) Service wiring is not complete. Contact your dealer,
installing agent or authorized service agent. (4) Electrical
power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local
electric company for service.
Flames inside oven or smoking from oven vent - Excessive
spillovers in oven. For example this will happen for pie
spillovers or large amounts of grease left on the oven bottom.
Wipe up excessive spillovers before starting oven. If flames or
excessive smoke are present see “Broiling” in the Setting
Oven Controls section.
Oven control beeps & displays any F code error (for example
F11) - Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press
CLEAR/OFF to clear the display & stop beeping. Try the Bake or
Broil function again. If the F code error repeats, remove power
suppy to appliance, wait 5 minutes and then repower the
appliance and set clock time of day. Try the Bake or Broil
function again. If the fault recurs, record fault number, press
CLEAR/OFF & contact an authorized service agent.
Poor baking results - Many factors affect baking results. Make
sure the proper oven rack position is used. Center food in the
oven & space pans to allow air to circulate. Allow the oven to
preheat to the set temperature before placing food in the oven.
Try adjusting the recipe's recommended temperature or baking
time. If you feel the oven is too hot or cool, see Adjusting Your
Oven Temperature in this Use & Care Manual.
Drip bowls are pitting or rusting (Coil element models) - (1)
Foods with acids, such as tomatoes if allowed to stand in or on
drip bowls will cause corrosion. Remove & wash drip bowls as
soon as possible after a spillover. (2) Normal environment.
Houses along coastal areas are exposed to salt air. Protect
bowls as much as possible from direct exposure to salt air.
Drip bowls turning color or distorted (Coil element models) Bottom surface of cookware extends beyond surface elements
and touches cooktop surface. This can cause high enough
temperatures to discolor the drip bowls. DO NOT use cookware
of this type. Pan sizes should be matched to the size of the
element. Replacement drip bowls may be purchased from your
appliance dealer.
Oven does not operate - Be sure the oven controls are set
properly for the desired function. See Setting Oven Controls in
this Use & Care Manual or read the instructions “Entire
appliance does not operate” in this checklist.
Oven light does not work (some models) - Replace or tighten
bulb. See Changing Oven Light section in this Use & Care Manual.
Oven smokes excessively during broiling - (1) Control(s) not
set properly. Follow Broil instructions under Setting Oven
Controls. (2) Make sure oven door is opened to broil stop
position. (3) Meat too close to the broil element. Reposition the
broil rack to provide proper clearance between the meat & the
element. Preheat the broil element for searing. (4) Meat not
properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut
remaining fatty edges to prevent curling, but do not cut into lean.
(5) Insert on broiler pan wrong side up & grease not draining.
Always place grid on the broiler pan with ribs up & slots down to
allow grease to drip into pan (some models). (6) Grease has
built up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary when
broiling frequently. Old grease or food spatters cause excessive
smoking.
