CAUTION
• DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE BURNERS, AREAS NEAR
THESE BURNERS, OVEN BURNERS OR INTERIOR
SURFACES OF THE OVEN. Both surface and oven
burners may be hot even though flames are not
visible. Areas near surface burners 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 dry potholders - moist or damp potholders
on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR COOKTOP
WARNING
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 of 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.
• 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.
• Air curtain or other overhead range hoods, which
operate by blowing a downward air flow on to a range,
shall not be used in conjunction with gas ranges other
than when the hood and range have been designed,
tested and listed by an independent test laboratory for
use in combination with each other.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR OVEN
• Use care when opening oven door , warmer
drawer or lower oven door—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 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.
• 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.

Removing, replacing & arranging 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 - always arrange the oven racks when the oven
is cool (prior to operating the oven).
CAUTION
The flat oven rack or flat handle oven rack (some
models) may be used for most cooking needs.
The offset oven rack (some models) is designed to place
the base of the rack about 1/2 of a rack position lower than
normal. This rack design provides several additional
possible positions between the standard positions.
Air circulation in the oven
Always use oven mitts when using the oven. When
using the appliance, oven racks and cooktop will become
very hot which can cause burns.
6
For best 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. Hot air must be able to circulate
around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat to
reach around the food.
Baking layer cakes with 1 or 2 oven racks
5
For best results when baking cakes using 2 oven racks,
place cookware on rack positions 2 & 5 (See Figs. 2 & 3).
For best results when using a single oven flat rack, place
cookware on rack positions 2, 3 or 4 (See Figs. 2 & 4).

BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Using proper cookware
Set proper burner flame size
For best cooking results,
cookware should have flat
bottoms that rests level on the
burner grate. Before using
cookware, check for flatness by
rotating a ruler across the
bottom of the cookware (Fig. 1).
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 sharp. Adjust
or clean burner if flame is yellow-orange.
Fig. 1
CAUTION
Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and
pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
the cooktop 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 range cooktop.
IMPORTANT
Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that
can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt
they may damage the cooktop.
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 results.
For most cooking; start on the highest setting and then
turn to a lower setting to complete the process. Use the
recommendations below as a guide for determining proper
flame size for various types of cooking (Fig. 2)
For deep fat frying; use a thermometer and adjust the
surface 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 under cooked.
Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the
food will neither brown or cook properly.
Flame size*
Type of cooking
High flame
Start most foods; bring water to a boil;
pan broiling.
Medium flame
Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces,
gravies; steaming.
Low flame
Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.
* These settings are based for medium-weight metal or
aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using
other types of pans.
Fig. 2
Cookware material types
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).
CAUTION
Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the
cooking utensil. A higher flame wastes energy, and
increases your risk of being burned by the flame (Fig. 3).
Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily.
Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking
results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
Correct flame
setting
Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor however will retain heat
very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is
reached.
Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating characteristics will
vary depending on base material.
Incorrect
flame setting
Glass - Slow heat conductor.

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Setting surface controls
Your gas appliance may be equipped with different sized
surface burners. The ability to heat food quicker and in
larger volumes increases as the burner size increases. It is
important to select cookware that is suitable for the amount
and type of food being prepared.
The smaller simmer burner (some models) is best suited
for simmering delicate sauces, etc.
The standard size (9,500 BTU) burners may be used for
most surface cooking needs.
The larger (Quick Boil - some models) burner or burners
are best used for bringing large quantities of liquid to
temperature and when preparing larger quantities of food.
Setting surface burners
1. Place cooking utensil on center of surface burner grate.
Make sure the utensil is centered and stable on the
grate.
2. Push the desired surface control knob in and turn
counterclockwise out of the OFF position (Fig. 1).
3. Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position.
Visually check that the gas burner has lit.
4. Push the control knob in and turn counterclockwise to
the desired flame size. Use the control knob markings
and adjust the flame as needed.
CAUTION
Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and
pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
the cooktop 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 range cooktop.
NOTES
DO NOT cook with the surface control knob left in the
LITE position. The electronic ignitor will continue to spark
if the control knob is left in the LITE position.
When setting any surface control knob to the LITE
position, all electronic surface ignitors will spark at the
same time. However, only the surface burner you are
setting will ignite.
10
Fig. 1
IMPORTANT
• NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over 2 different
surface cooking areas at the same time.
• Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that
can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt
they may permanently damage the cooktop surface.
• In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface
burners can be lit manually. Use caution when lighting
surface burners manually. To light a surface burner,
hold a lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn
the surface control knob to LITE. After burner lights
push in and turn knob to desired setting.
Home Canning
Be sure to read and observe all the following points when
home canning with your appliance. Check with the USDA
(United States Department of Agriculture) website and be
sure to read all the information they have available as well
as follow their recommendations for home canning
procedures.
• Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning.
Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom.
• Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no ridges
that radiate from the bottom center when home canning
using a ceramic cooktop.
• Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed 1
inch beyond the surface element markings or burner. It is
recommended to use smaller diameter canners on electric
coil and ceramic glass cooktops.
• Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more
quickly.
• Use the highest heat seating when first bringing the water
to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest
possible setting to maintain that boil.

SELF-CLEANING
Self-cleaning
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures
(well above normal cooking temperatures) which eliminate
soils completely or reduces them to a fine powdered ash
you can wipe away with a damp cloth.
IMPORTANT
Adhere to the following self-clean precautions:
•
DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective
coatings in or around any part of the oven interior.
•
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket (See Fig. 1). 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.
•
Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils
and ANY ALUMINUM FOIL. These items cannot
withstand high cleaning temperatures and will
melt.
•
Completely remove ALL OVEN RACKS and ANY
ACCESSORIES. If the oven racks are not
removed they will lose their special coating
properties and no longer slide in and out of the
oven cavity easily.
•
Remove any excessive spillovers. Any spills on
the oven bottom should be wiped-up and removed
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.
•
CAUTION
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.
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.
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 finished.
The oven may still be VERY HOT.
Fig. 1
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. These areas are shown in white (See Fig. 1).

Solutions to common problems •
BEFORE YOU CALL
Problem
Solution
Soil not completely removed after selfcleaning cycle.
• Failure to clean bottom, front top of oven, frame of oven or door area
outside oven seal. These areas are not in the self-cleaning area, but get hot
enough to burn on residue. Clean these areas before the self-cleaning cycle
is started. Burned-on residue can be cleaned with a stiff nylon brush and
water or a nylon scrubber. Be careful not to damage the oven gasket.
Oven smokes excessively during broiling.
• Incorrect setting. Follow broiling instructions in Setting Oven Controls.
• Make sure oven door closed.
• Meat too close to upper burner. Reposition oven rack to provide proper
clearance between the meat & the burner. Preheat the oven.
• Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut remaining
fatty edges to prevent curling, but do not cut into lean.
• Broiler pan and insert wrong side up and grease not draining. Always
place insert on the broiler pan with ribs up & slots down to allow grease
to drip into pan (some models).
• Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary when
broiling frequently. Old grease or food spatters cause excessive smoking.
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 panel beeps & displays any
F code error (for example F10, F11,
F13, F14, F15, F30, F31 or F90).
• Oven control has detected a fault or error condition. Press clear off to
clear the display & stop beeping. Try the bake or broil feature again. If the
F code error repeats, remove power from appliance, wait 5 minutes and
then repower appliance and set clock for the time of day. Try the bake or
broil feature again. If the fault recurs, record fault and call for service.
Oven light does not work.
• Be sure the light is secure in the socket. Also see “Replacing oven light” in the
Care & Cleaning section.
Appliance is not level.
• Be sure floor is level, strong & stable enough to adequately support range.
• If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
• Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the
oven rack. Adjust leveling legs at base of appliance until the rack is level.
• Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear not level. Be sure
cabinets are square & have sufficient room for appliance clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily. Appliance
must be accessible for service.
• Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly. Contact builder or installer to
make appliance accessible.
• Carpet interferes with appliance. Provide sufficient space so appliance can be
lifted over carpet.
