Important Safety Instructions
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.
• 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
• Remove the oven door from any unused range if it is to
be stored or discarded.
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.
Do not use the oven or warmer drawer (if
equipped) for storage.
IMPORTANT—Do not attempt to operate the range during
a power failure. If the power fails, always turn off the range.
If the range is not turned off and the power resumes, the range
will begin to operate again. Once the power resumes, reset the
clock and oven function.
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.
• 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.
• 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.
Important Safety Instructions
COOKTOP (Cont’d)
• 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 (some
models). 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.
• 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.
• 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.
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.
• 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.

Before Setting Oven Controls
Oven Vent Location
The oven vent is located under the left side of the control panel
(See Fig. 1). When the oven is on, warm air passes through the vent.
This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good
baking results. DO NOT BLOCK OVEN VENT.
Removing & Replacing Oven Racks

For best results when baking cakes using 2 oven racks, place cookware on rack positions 1 & 4 (See Fig. 7). For best results
when using a single oven Flat Rack, place cookware on rack position 3 (See Fig. 8).
Air Circulation in the Oven
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 be able to circulate around the
pans and cookware in the oven for
even heat to reach around the food.

Setting Surface Controls
Cookware Material Types
The cookware material determines how evenly & quickly heat is transferred from the surface element to the pan bottom.
The most popular materials available are:
ALUMINUM - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food
will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware resists
staining & pitting). If aluminum pans slide across the ceramic
cooktop, they may leave metal marks which will resemble
scratches. Remove these marks immediately.
COPPER - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily.
May leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see Aluminum).
STAINLESS STEEL - Slow heat conductor with uneven
cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean & resists
CAST IRON - A poor heat conductor however will retain
heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is
reached. Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.
characteristics will vary depending on base material.
Porcelain-enamel coating must be smooth to avoid
scratching ceramic cooktops.
GLASS - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for
ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the
Using proper cookware
The size and type of cookware used will influence the setting
needed for best cooking results. Cookware should have flat
bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface
heating element (See Fig. 2). Check for flatness by rotating a
ruler across the bottom of the cookware (See Fig. 1).
Fig. 1
Be sure to follow the
recommendations for using
proper cookware as
illustrated in Figs. 1 & 2.

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. Be sure to match the pan size with the diameter of the
element outline on the cooktop. Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop to the cookware. Only flatbottomed cookware should be used.
The type and size of cookware, the number of surface elements in use and their 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.
Suggested Radiant Surface Element Settings Table
The suggested settings found in Fig. 3 are
based when cooking with medium-weight
aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary
when using other types of pans.
Note: The size and type of utensil used, and
the amount and type of food being cooked will
influence the setting needed for best cooking
Type of Cooking
HIGH (HI - 9)
Start most foods, bring water to a boil, pan broiling
Continue a rapid boil, fry, deep fat fry
MEDIUM (5 - 6)
Maintain a slow boil, thicken sauces and gravies or
steam vegetables
MEDIUM LOW (2 - 4)
Keep foods cooking, poach, stew

About the Radiant Surface Elements
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.

Care & Cleaning and Before You Call checklist
sections of this Use & Care Manual.
Element ON & Hot Surface Indicator Lights
Your range is equipped with two different types of radiant surface control
indicator lights that will glow on your range— the Element ON indicator
light and the Hot Surface indicator lights (Refer to Fig. 2).
The Element ON indicator lights are located on the control panel above each radiant
element control knob and will glow when a surface element is turned ON. A quick glance
at this indicator light after cooking is an easy check to be sure ALL surface controls are
turned OFF. The Hot Surface indicator light located on the control panel will glow when
any surface cooking area heats up and will REMAIN ON until the glass cooktop has
cooled to a MODERATE level.
Fig. 2
NOTE: Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to cycle ON & OFF, even
at the HI setting. This helps to prevent damage to the ceramic smoothtop. Cycling at the
HI setting is normal and will occur more often if the cookware is too small for the radiant
element or if the cookware bottom is not flat.
Single Radiant Surface Elements (all models)
To Operate a Single Radiant Element:
1. Place correctly sized cookware on radiant surface element.
2. Push in & turn the surface control knob in either direction to the desired setting
(Refer to the Suggested Radiant Surface Element Settings Table & Fig. 3).
Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to a lower setting to
finish cooking. The surface control knobs do not have to be set exactly on a
particular mark. Use the marks as a guide and adjust the control knob as needed.
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 is complete turn the surface element OFF before removing the
Note: The Element ON indicator lights will glow when one or more of the surface
elements are turned ON. A quick glance at these indicator lights when cooking is
finished is an easy check to be sure all control knobs are turned OFF. The Hot Surface
indicator light will continue to glow AFTER the control knob is turned to the OFF position
& will glow until the heating surface area has cooled sufficiently.
Fig. 3
DO NOT place plastic items such as salt &
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.
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.
Setting Surface Controls (cont’d)
To Operate Dual Radiant Surface Elements (some models)
Symbols on the backguard are used to indicate which coil of the Dual
symbol indicates the inner coil only. The
Radiant element will heat. The
symbol indicates both inner and outer coils will heat (See Figs. 1, 2 &
Suggested Radiant Surface Element Settings Table). You may switch
from either coil setting at any time during cooking. Push in & turn the control
knob in either direction to the desired setting as instructed above. Note:
Surface areas that heat are shown in black.
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 & pepper

Setting the Warming Zone (some models)
Fig. 2
The purpose of the Warming Zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. 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 from the cooktop surface.
Use only dishware, utensils & cookware recommended for oven and ceramic cooktop use on the Warming Zone.

using your hand from the front of the bake element. This will
allow easier access to the oven bottom for cleaning.
Remove the bottom oven rack before raising the element. Be
careful not to raise the element more than 4 or 5 inches
from the resting position.
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
• 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
• DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the oven door
gasket. Doing so could cause damage.
• Remove the broiler pan & insert (some models), all
utensils & ANY aluminum foil. These items cannot
withstand high cleaning temperatures.
• Remove racks. See "Removing & Replacing Oven Racks"
under Before Setting Oven Controls. If they are not
removed during the Self-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
oven racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small
amount of salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier
into the rack position).
• Remove any excessive spillovers in the oven cavity
before starting the Self-Cleaning 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 leave a
dull spot even after cleaning.
• Hand 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 & water.
• Prior to setting the Self-Clean cycle, any spills remaining
on the oven bottom should be removed.
The baking element
may be tilted about
4 or 5 inches to
clean the oven
The oven bake & broil elements may appear
to have cooled after they have been turned OFF. The
elements may still be hot and burns may occur if these
elements are touched before they have cooled sufficiently.
Starting the Self-Clean Cycle or a Delayed
Start Self-Clean Cycle
For satisfactory results, use a 2 hour Self-Clean cycle for
light soils or a 3 hour cycle for heavier soils. NOTE: The
kitchen area should be well ventilated using an open
window, ventitlation fan or exhaust hood during the 1st SelfClean cycle. This will help eliminate the normal odors
associated with the 1st Self-Clean cycle.

General Care & Cleaning (cont’d)
Cooktop Cleaning & Maintenance
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop.
Note: Additional cooktop cleaning cream may be ordered by visiting the Frigidaire website at www.frigidaire.com
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 no-scratch cleaning pad. 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
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough or dirty bottoms
can mark or scratch the cooktop surface. Do not slide anything metal
or glass across the cooktop. Do not use cookware with dirt or dirt
build up on bottom; replace with clean cookware before using. 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 ceramic glass cooktop, they may
cause it to crack.
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.
Cleaning Recommendations for the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a non-abrasive plastic
type no-scratch cleaning pad to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no
For heavy, burned on soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a non-abrasive
plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad, applying pressure as needed. Do not use the pad you use to clean the cooktop 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 cleaning cream and buff surface clean.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you
use an abrasive type cleaning pad. Only use cleaning products that have been
specifically designed for ceramic glass cooktops.
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.
General Care & Cleaning (cont’d)
Cleaning Precautions for the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
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.

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 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
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
