WARNING
NEVER use this appliance as a space heater to
heat or warm the room. Doing so may result in
carbon monoxide poisoning.
NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the
oven bottom or cover an entire rack with materials
such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow
through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide
poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may trap heat,
causing a fire hazard.
Stepping, leaning or sitting on the door or
drawers of a range can result in serious injuries
and also cause damage to the appliance. DO NOT
allow children to climb or play around the range. The
weight of a child on an open oven door may cause the
range to tip, resulting in serious burns or other injury.
Storage in or on appliance—flammable materials
should not be stored in an oven, near surface
units or in the storage drawer, warmer drawer or
lower oven. 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, including the
storage drawer, lower broiler drawer, warmer drawer or
lower double oven.
CAUTION
Do not store items of interest to children in the
cabinets above a range or on the backguard of
the range. Children climbing on the range to reach
items could be seriously injured.
• Remove the oven door from any unused range if it
is to be stored or discarded.
•User servicing—Do not repair or replace any part of

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.
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 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.
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.
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.
• 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 SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING

The flat oven rack or flat handle oven rack (some
models) may be used for most cooking needs. The
Effortless™ Oven Rack (some models) is described later
in this section. 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.To maximize oven cooking space place the
bottom oven rack (some models) in the lowest rack
position for baking or and when roasting large cuts of meat.

Air circulation in the oven
CAUTION
Always use oven mitts when using the oven. When
using the appliance, oven racks and cooktop will become
very hot which can cause burns.
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.

BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Effortless™ Oven Rack system
Some models are equipped with a special oven rack system
that automatically partially extends the oven rack from the
interior oven glides to assist in easier access to your food
items. This feature works whenever the oven door is
opened or closed.
To assemble the Effortless™ Oven Rack system:
1. Locate all required parts. You will need the supplied
oven rack (Effortless™ Oven Rack is a flat rack with a
special dark coating on the left and right rack
sides) and the 2 supplied chrome connector arms.
2. Open the oven door. Be sure the oven is completely
cool before proceeding.
3. Place the oven rack in positions 2, 3 or 4 only (see
previous page to verify positions).Be sure the rack
connector brackets are at the rear of the range and
pointing towards oven bottom (See Fig. 2).
4. Assemble one connector arm at a time. With the oven
door open and the oven rack in place, install one end of
the connector arm to the hole in the door connector
bracket (Fig. 1) and the other end in the hole in the
rack connector bracket (Fig. 2 and as in Fig. 3). The
oven rack may need to be adjusted in or out in the rack
position to match the length of the connector arm.
5. While holding the connector arm in place, twist the
connector arm so the ends of the connector arm point
upwards (See Figs. 4 & 5). The connector arm should
now be locked into position.
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the other connector arm.
7. Once both connector arms are properly in place, be
sure to test the oven rack operation by gently closing
the oven door. The oven rack should move in and out of
the oven freely when the door is opened or closed.
IMPORTANT
Only the Effortless™ Oven Rack system should be
used in oven rack position 2. Placing ANY other rack
in oven rack position 2 will prevent the oven door
from fully closing and may damage the oven door,
oven cavity or the door connector brackets.
If the rack system is not assembled with the connector
arms the Effortless™ Oven rack may be used in oven rack
positions 2 thru 6. Do not attempt to use the Effortless™
Oven rack in rack position 1.

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 undercooked.
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 many different
sized surface burners. The ability to heat food quicker and
in larger volumes increases as the burner size increases.
The smaller simmer burner (some models) is best suited
for simmering delicate sauces, etc.
The standard size (9,000 BTU) burners may be used for
most surface cooking needs.
The larger quick boil burner or burners (some models)
are best used when bringing large quantities of liquid to
temperature and when preparing larger quantities of food.
It is important to select cookware that is suitable for the
amount and type of food being prepared. Select a burner
and flame size appropriate for the cookware size.
Setting a surface burner
1. Place cooking utensil on center of surface burner
grate. Make sure the cooking untensil 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.
Fig. 1
IMPORTANT
• Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that
can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt
they may permantely damage the cooktop surface.
• In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface
burners can be lit manually. To light a surface burner,
hold a lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn
the surface control knob to LITE. After burner lights
push in and turn knob to desired setting. Use caution
when lighting surface burners manually.
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 canning procedures.
• Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning.
Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom (see
“Cookware material types” in the Before setting
surface controls section).
• Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more

How Quick Bake works
3
Quick Bake uses a fan to circulate the oven's heat
uniformly and continuously around the oven. This improved
heat distribution allows for fast, even cooking and browning
results. It also gives better baking results when using two
racks at the same time.
Heated air flows around the food from all sides, sealing in
juices and flavors. Meats cooked with Quick Bake are
juicer. Poultry is crisp on the outside while staying tender
and moist on the inside. Breads and pastry brown more
evenly. Most foods baked in a standard oven can be cooked
faster and more evenly with Quick Bake.
Suggestions for Quick Bake
When baking
1. For optimum cooking results it is recommended to
preheat the oven when baking foods such as cookies,
biscuits and breads.
2. Reduce oven temperature 25°F from recipe’s
recommended oven temperature. Follow the remainder
of the recipe’s instructions using the minimum
recommended cook time.
3. When using 2 oven racks at the same time, place in
positions 2 & 5 for best results (See Fig. 1).
When roasting
1. Preheating is not necessary when roasting foods using
Quick Bake.
2. Since Quick Bake cooks food faster, reduce the cook
time by 25% from the recommended cook time of your
recipe. Check the food at this time. If necessary,
increase cook time until the desired doneness is
obtained.
3. Do not cover foods when dry roasting - this will keep
the air from circulating around the food.
Setting Quick Bake
The oven may be programmed to Quick Bake at any
temperature from 300°F to 550°F (147°C to 287°C). The
factory preset Quick Bake temperature is 350°F (177°C).

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 loose their special coating
properties and no longer slide in and out of the
oven cavity effortlessly.
•
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.
•
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).
20
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
completed. The oven may still be VERY HOT.

CAUTION
slots
ignition port
To avoid possible burns use care when cleaning the
cooktop. DO NOT attempt to clean the cooktop whenever
the cooktop or burner heads are still hot.
orifice port
To avoid possible burns DO NOT attempt any of the
cleaning instructions provided below before turning OFF
all of the surface burners and allow them to cool.
The cooktop and surface burners are designed to make
cleaning easier. Since cooktop surface burners are sealed,
cleanups are easy when spillovers are cleaned up
immediately. Routinely clean the cooktop. Wipe with a clean,
damp cloth and wipe dry to avoid scratches. The contoured
well areas and burner drip pans (some models) should be
frequently cleaned also.
Keeping the burner head ports and slots clean will prevent
improper ignition and an uneven flame. Refer to the following
sections for further instructions.
To clean the burner head ignition ports
Each burner head has a small ignition port located as
illustrated. Should you experience ignition problems it may be
that this port hole is partially blocked with soil. With the burner
head in place, use a small wire gauge needle or the end of a
paper clip to clear the ignition port.
To clean the surface burner heads
For proper gas flow it may be necessary to clean the burner
head and slots. To clean, first use a clean DAMP cloth to soak
up any spills. Remove any food from between the burner slots
using a small non-abrasive brush like a toothbrush and
afterwards wipe up using a damp cloth. For stubborn soils
located in the slots, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean.
To clean the recessed and contoured well areas of
the cooktop
If a spill occurs on or in the recessed or contoured areas,
blot up spill with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean,
damp cloth and wipe dry.
To clean the surface burner grates, caps & burner
drip pans (some models)
Use a soap-filled scouring pad or a mild abrasive cleanser
to clean the surface burner caps and surface burner drip
pans (if equipped).
Fig. 1 - Cooktop burner head
IMPORTANT
The surface burner heads are secured to the cooktop
and must be cleaned in place on the cooktop.
For proper flow of gas and ignition of the burner — DO
NOT allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any
other material to enter the gas orifice holder
opening. Always keep the surface burner cap and
surface burner head in place whenever a surface
burner is in use.
Replacing the oven light
The light bulb is located at the rear of the oven and is
covered with a glass shield held by a wire holder. The glass
shield must be in place whenever the oven is in use.
To replace the oven light bulb:
1. Turn electrical power off at the main source or unplug
the range.
2. Press wire holder to one side to release the glass shield
that covers the light bulb.
3. Replace bulb with a new 40 watt appliance bulb.
4. Replace glass shield over bulb and snap wire holder
back into place.
5. Turn power back on again at the main source (or plug
the appliance back in).
6. The clock will then need to be reset. To reset, see
Setting the clock in this Use & Care Guide.
CAUTION
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.

Solutions to common problems •
Problem
BEFORE YOU CALL
Solution
Poor baking results.
• Many factors affect baking results. Make sure the proper oven rack position is
used. Center food in the oven and 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 Oven Temperature” section in this
Use & Care Guide.
Entire appliance does not operate.
• The time of day is not set. The time of day must first be set in order to
operate the oven. See “Setting the clock” in the Setting oven controls
section.
• Make sure cord/plug is plugged correctly into outlet.
• Service wiring is not complete. Contact your dealer, installing agent or
authorized service agent.
• Electrical power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local
electric company for service.
Oven portion of appliance does not
operate.
• Be sure the oven controls are set properly for the desired cooking feature.
See Setting Oven Controls in this manual or see “Entire appliance does
not operate” in this checklist.
Surface burners do not ignite.
• Surface control knob was not completely turned to LITE. Push in & turn the
surface control knob to LITE until burner ignites and then turn control knob
to desired flame size.
• Burner ports are clogged. With the burner OFF, use a small-gauge wire or
needle to burner head slots and ignition ports. See “Cleaning the cooktop
and surface burners” in the Care & Cleaning section for additional
cleaning instructions.
• Range power cord is disconnected from outlet (electric ignition models
only). Be sure power cord is securely plugged into the power outlet.
• Electrical power outage (electric ignition models only). Burners can be lit
manually. See section on Setting Surface Controls.
Surface burner flame only part way
around burner cap.
• Burner slots or ports are clogged. With the surface burner OFF, clean ports
with a small-gauge wire or needle.
• Moisture is present after cleaning. Lightly fan the flame & allow burner to
operate until flame is full. Dry the surface burners thoroughly following the
instructions under “Cleaning the cooktop and surface burners” provided in
the Care & Cleaning section.
Surface burner flame is orange.
• Dust particles in main gas line. Allow the burner to operate a few minutes
until flame turns blue. In coastal areas, a slightly orange flame is
unavoidable due to salt air.
Self-cleaning cycle does not work.
• Oven control not set properly. Follow instructions under Self-cleaning.
• Self-cleaning cycle was interrupted. Follow steps under "Stopping or
Interrupting a Self-cleaning cycle" under Self-cleaning.
25
BEFORE YOU CALL
• Solutions to common problems
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 the broil 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 grid 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 cancel 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 “Changing & replacing the
oven light” 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.
