IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
• 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,
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.
• Do not touch surface heating units or surface
cooking elements, areas near these units or
elements, or interior surface of the oven. Both
surface heating and oven heating elements may be hot
even though they are dark in color. Areas near surface
cooking 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 oven door 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.
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.
4
• 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 INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR OVEN
• Use care when opening oven door , lower 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 interior 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 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
YOUR RANGE
CAUTION
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.
Before manually cleaning any part of the range, be sure all
controls are turned OFF and the range is COOL. The range
may be hot and can cause burns.
• 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.
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of
• Do not immerse or soak removable heating
elements—Heating elements should never be immersed
in water. Heating elements clean themselves during
normal operation.
• 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.
• 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.
• Clean ventilating hoods frequently—Grease should
not be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning hoods.
• When flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn
the fan on.
FOR CERAMIC-GLASS COOK TOP MODELS
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention
to the area around each surface element. Do not allow
grease to accumulate.
• 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.

The flat oven rack or flat handle oven rack (some
models) may be used for most cooking needs. The half
rack (some models) design comes with a removable
section that allows for taller cooking utensils. 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 roasting
large cuts of meat. The Effortless™ Oven Rack (some
models) is described later in this section.
To maximize oven cooking space place the bottom oven
rack (some models) in the lowest rack position for baking

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 through 6. Do not attempt to use the
Effortless™ Oven rack in rack position 1.

CAUTION
REMOVE ALL OVEN RACKS and accessories before
starting a self-clean cycle. If the oven racks are left
in the oven during the self-clean cycle, the glide ability of
the Effortless™ Oven Rack system will be damaged and
will cause oven racks to loose their shiny finish and or
turn blue. Remove ALL oven racks and clean according
to instructions provided in the Care & Cleaning section of
this manual.
Make sure the oven and oven racks are COMPLETELY
cool and safe to touch before attempting to assemble or
disassemble the Effortless™ Oven Rack system. Never
pick up hot oven rack parts.

BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Air circulation in the oven
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
For best results when baking cakes using 2 oven racks,
place cookware on rack positions 2 & 5 (See Fig. 1). For
best results when using a single oven flat rack, place
cookware on rack positions 2, 3 or 4 (See Fig. 2).
The dual radiant element allows the user to set the
smaller inner portion as a single element or both inner and
outer portions may be set to heat together (See Figs. 3 &
4). The triple (some models) radiant element works like
the dual with an additional size setting that permits heating
small, medium and large cookware from the same element
position (See Fig. 3)

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 and only
flat-bottomed 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.
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.
The single radiant elements will have one round outline
pattern shown (See Figs. 3 & 4). The keep warm zone is
designed to keep food warm only.

Fig. 4 (models with 2 dual elements)
Quick boil feature (some models)
Your appliance may be equipped with one or two elements
on the ceramic cooktop marked quick boil.
These radiant elements are best used when bringing larger
quantities of liquid to temperature and when preparing
larger quantities of food.
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 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.

BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Cookware material types
Using proper cookware
The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly
heat is transferred from the surface element to the pan
bottom. The most popular materials available are:
The size and type of cookware used will influence the
setting needed for best cooking results. Be sure to follow
the recommendations for using proper cookware as
illustrated in Figs. 2 & 3.
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).
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. 3). For more information about the
ceramic cooktop see “Cooktop Cleaning & Maintenance” in
the Care & Cleaning section.
Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking
results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor however will retain heat
very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is
reached. Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.
Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating 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 glass.
Curved and warped pan.
Flat bottom and straight
sides.
Tight fitting lids.
Weight of handle does
not tilt pan. Pan is well
balanced.
Pan sizes match the
amount of food to be
prepared and the size of
the surface element.
Made of a material that
conducts heat well.
Easy to clean.
Always match pot
diameter to element size.
Pan larger than cooking area
marked on cooktop by more
than one-half inch or 12mm.
Heavy handle tilts pan.
Pan is smaller or larger
than heating area marked
on cooktop.

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 (see
“Cookware material types” in the Before setting
surface controls section).
• 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 setting when first bringing the water
to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest
possible setting to maintain that boil.
IMPORTANT
NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over 2 different
surface cooking areas at the same time. This may cause
the ceramic cooktop to fracture.

SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Convect bake (all models)
Benefits of the convect feature
— Foods may cook up to 25 to 30% faster, saving time and
energy.
— Multiple rack baking.
— No special pans or bakeware needed.
Convect 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. Breads and pastry brown more evenly.
Layer cakes will have better results using the bake pad.
Most foods baked in a standard oven can be cooked faster
and more evenly with the convect feature.
Suggestions for convect 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 (Fig. 1).

Convect roast (all models)
Meats cooked with convect roast will be juicer and
poultry will be crisp on the outside while staying tender and
moist on the inside.
NOTE
When choosing between the convect features, use the
convect keypad to toggle between convect bake,
convect roast or convect broil (some models) choices.
Suggestion for convect roast
1. Preheating is not necessary when roasting foods using
convect roast.
2. Since convect roast 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 prevent
the meat from browning properly.

default oven set temperature of 350°F:
Step
Press
1. Press convect.

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.
Your oven allows you to set 3 different self-cleaning cycle
durations. A 3-hour cleaning time is best used for normal
cleaning; 2-hour time for light soils and a 4-hour time
option for heavier burnt-on soils.
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. 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 (See Fig. 1).
•
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.
•
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.
Fig. 1
CAUTION
Before manually cleaning any part of the range, be sure all
controls are turned OFF and the range is COOL. The range
may be hot and can cause burns.
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 Fig. 1.

SELF-CLEANING
Setting a self-clean cycle or a delayed
start self-clean cycle
Examples: To start an immediate self-cleaning cycle
and/or how to add a delay start time of 9:00 o’clock
and shut-off self-clean automatically:
Step
Press
1. Be sure the clock is set with the correct
time of day, ALL the oven racks are
removed and the oven door is closed.
When the self-clean cycle has completed:
1. The time of day and “Hot” will appear in the display
window (See Fig. 3).
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 hour and
“Hot” is no longer displayed the “door OPn” message
should appear (Fig. 4). When this message turns off
the oven door may be opened. Use caution and avoid
possible burns when opening the door after the selfcleaning cycle has completed. The oven may still be
VERY HOT.
Go to step 5 if you wish to start the
self-clean immediately.
Fig. 3
Finish steps 2 thru 6 if setting a
delayed start self-clean cycle.
Fig. 4
If it becomes necessary to stop a self-clean cycle
once it has been activated:
1. Press cancel.
2. If the self-clean cycle has heated the oven to a high
temperature, allow enough time for the oven to cool
and for the “door OPn” message to appear (Fig. 4).
When this message turns off the oven door may be
opened.
3. Restart the self-clean cycle once all conditions have
been corrected.
2. Press delay start.
3. Enter 9 0 0.
4. Press start.
CAUTION
5. Press self clean once for a 3-hour
clean time, press self clean twice for
4-hour clean and press 3 times
for a 2-hour self-clean cycle time.
To avoid possible burns 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.
6. Press start.
IMPORTANT
As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven door
lock will begin to close automatically. “door Loc” will
appear in the display (See Fig. 1). DO NOT open the
oven door while “door Loc” is on (allow 15 seconds for
the oven door to completely lock).
Once the door has locked “CLn” will appear in the
display indicating the oven will begin the self-clean
process (Fig. 2).
DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage
the automatic door locking system. Use caution and
avoid possible burns when opening the door after the
self-cleaning cycle has completed. The oven may still be
VERY HOT.
NOTES
Whenever the self-clean feature is active you may check
the amount of time remaining in the self-clean cycle by
pressing the
pad once. The oven door will be
locked until the range has cooled sufficiently. You will
need to allow about 1 additional hour to the time
displayed before you can open the oven door.

cloth. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft clean cloth. DO NOT
use ANY store bought cleaners like Stainless Steel cleaners or any other
types of cleaners containing any abrasive, chlorides, chlorine or
ammonia. It is recommended to use mild dish soap and water or a 50/
50 solution of water and vinegar.
• Porcelain enamel broiler pan and broiler
pan insert (some models)
Gentle scouring with a soapy non-abrasive scouring pad will remove
most spots. Rinse with a 1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia. If
necessary, cover difficult spots with an ammonia-soaked paper towel
for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp cloth, and
then scrub with a soap-filled non-abrasive scouring pad. Rinse and
wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may
become damaged during future heating.
• Porcelain door liner & body parts
• Keep warm drawer interior (some models)
• Storage drawer interior (some models)

CARE & CLEANING
Cooktop maintenance
IMPORTANT
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 glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner supplied with your new
appliance. 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 use.
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.
• Use cookware with dirt or dirt build up on bottom;
replace with clean cookware before using.
• Use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in
the kitchen.
• Cook foods directly on the cooktop surface without a pan.
• Drop heavy or hard objects on the ceramic glass cooktop,
they may cause it to crack.
34
Cooktop cleaning
CAUTION
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are
turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of the glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner
directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a nonabrasive plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad 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 glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner
directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a nonabrasive 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.
CARE & CLEANING
Cooktop cleaning (cont’d)
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.
WARNING
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.
Do not use the following on the 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.
IMPORTANT
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.
Caution for aluminum use on the cooktop
• Aluminum Foil - Use of aluminum foil on a hot cooktop
will damage the ceramic cooktop. Do not use thin
aluminum cooking utensils or allow aluminum foil to
touch the ceramic cooktop under ANY circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils - The melting point of aluminum
is much lower than that of other metals. Care must be
taken when aluminum pots or pans are used on the
cooktop. If aluminum pans are allowed to boil dry
when using the cooktop, not only will the utensil be
damaged or destroyed, but it may fuse to, break or
mark the ceramic glass surface, permanently
damaging the cooktop surface.
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.
3. Replace bulb with a new 40 watt appliance bulb.
4. Replace glass shield over bulb and snap wire holder
into place.
5. Turn power back on again at the main source (or plug
the range 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.
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.
Surface element too hot or not hot
enough.
• Incorrect control setting. Be sure the correct control is ON for the element that
you are attempting to use.
Surface element does not heat.
• 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.
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 read the instructions “Entire
appliance does not operate” in this checklist.
Oven light does not work.
• Be sure the light is secure in the socket. Also see “Changing & replacing the
oven light” section.
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.
37
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 is opened to broil stop position.
• 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.
• 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 “About broiling” in the Setting Oven Controls section.
Oven control panel beeps & displays any
F code error (for example F10)
• 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.
Scratches or abrasions on cooktop
surface.
• Coarse particles such as salt or sand between cooktop and utensils can
cause scratches. Be sure cooktop surface and bottoms of utensils are
clean before usage. Small scratches do not affect cooking and will
become less visible with time.
• Cleaning materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been
used. See "Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance in the Care and
Cleaning section of this Use & Care Guide.
• Cookware with rough bottom has been used. Use smooth, flat-bottomed
cookware.
Metal marks on the cooktop.
• Sliding or scraping of metal utensils on cooktop surface. Do not slide metal
utensils on cooktop surface. Use a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning creme to
remove the marks. See "Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance" in the Care and
Cleaning section.
Brown streaks or specks on cooktop
surface.
• Boilovers are cooked onto surface. Use razor blade scraper to remove soil.
See "Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance" in the Care & Cleaning section.
Areas of discoloration with metallic sheen
on cooktop surface.
• Mineral deposits from water and food. Remove using a ceramic-glass cooktop
cleaning creme. Use cookware with clean, dry bottoms.
