Important Safety Instructions
SURFACES OF THE OVEN. Both surface burners 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 cooktop, surfaces facing the cooktop,
the oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings,
oven door and window.
Proper relationship of utensil to flame will also improve
Do not use stove top grills on the burner
grates of sealed gas burners. If you use a stove top grill on
a sealed gas burner, it will cause incomplete combustion and
can result in exposure to carbon monoxide levels above
allowable current standards. This can be hazardous to your
• 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.
• 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.
• Always turn the 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.
• 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.
• Use proper pan size. This appliance is equipped with one
or more surface burners of different sizes. Select utensils
having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface
burner. The use of undersized utensils will expose a
portion of the surface burner to direct contact and may
result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil
to the surface burner will also improve efficiency.
• When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or
grease may catch fire if allowed to become too hot.
In case of fire or gas leak, be sure to turn
off the main gas shutoff valve.
• Use only dry potholders—Moist or damp potholders
on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not
let potholders touch hot heating burners. Do not use a
towel or other bulky cloth instead of a potholder.
• 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 to adjacent surface burners.
• Do not heat unopened food containers—Buildup of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in
• 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.
• Remove the oven door from any unused range if it is
to be stored or discarded.
• Protective liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line surface
burner pans, or oven bottom, except as suggested in this
manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in
risk of electric shock, or fire.
IMPORTANT—Do not attempt to operate the oven during
a power failure. If the power fails, always turn off the oven.
If the oven is not turned off and the power resumes, the oven
may begin to operate again. Once the power resumes, reset
the clock and oven function.
• Glazed cooking utensils—Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for range top service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer’s recommendations for cooktop use.
Electronic controllers can be damaged by
cold temperatures. When you use your appliance for the
first time, or if it has not been used for a long period of
time, make sure that it has been exposed to a temperature
above 0°C/32°F for at least 3 hours before connecting it to
the power supply.
• Do not use Searing Grill on the cooktop. The searing
grill is not designed for use on the cooktop. Doing so may
result in a fire.
• Do not use decorative surface burner covers. If a burner
is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover will become
hot and possibly melt. Burns will occur if the hot covers are
touched. Damage may also be done to the cooktop or
burners because the covers may cause overheating. Air
will be blocked from the burner and cause combustion
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.
Important Safety Instructions
• Use care when opening oven door or warm & serve
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/ warm &
serve drawer.
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease
that could catch fire. Exhaust fan ventilation hoods and
grease filters should be kept clean. Do not allow grease to
accumulate on hood or filter. Greasy deposits in the fan
could catch fire. When you are flaming food under the hood,
turn the fan on. Refer to the hood manufacturer’s instructions
for cleaning.
• Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. The oven vent is
located at the center rear of the cooktop. 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
• 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.
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.
• Placement of oven/warm & serve drawer (if equipped)
racks. Always place oven racks in desired location while
oven/warm & serve drawer (if equipped) 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/warm & serve drawer (if equipped). Remove all
utensils from the rack before moving.
• 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.
• In the self-Cleaning cycle only clean the parts listed in
this Use and Care Guide. Before self-cleaning the oven,
remove the broiler pan and any utensils or foods from the
• 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.
• Remove oven racks. Oven racks color will change if left in
the oven during a self-cleaning cycle.
• 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.
The health of some birds is extremely
sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-cleaning
cycle of the range. Move the birds to another well ventilated
• Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil.
Exposed fat and grease could ignite.
• Do not touch a hot light bulb with a damp cloth. Doing
so could cause the bulb to break. Disconnect the appliance
or turn off the power to the appliance before removing and
replacing light bulb.

Control Locations of the Gas Surface Burners
Your range is equipped with gas surface burners with
different BTU ratings. The ability to heat food quicker and
in larger volumes increases as the burner size increases.
The small SIMMER burner is best used for simmering
delicate sauces, etc. This burner is located at the right rear
burner position on the cooktop (see Fig. 4).
The STANDARD burner can be used for most surface
cooking needs. The standard burners are located at the left
front position and left rear position (some models) on the
cooktop (see Fig. 4).
The POWER burners are best used for bringing large
quantities of liquid rapidly up to temperature or when preparing
larger quantities of food. The POWER burners are located at
the right front and left rear (some models) burner positions on
the cooktop (see Fig. 4).
Regardless of size, always select cookware that is suitable
for the amount and type of food being prepared. Select a
burner and flame size appropriate to the pan. Never allow
flames to extend beyond the outer edge of the pan.
Fig. 4
Setting Surface Controls
Operating the Gas Surface Controls:
1. Place cooking utensil on surface burner.
2. Push the surface control knob down and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF
3. Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position (see fig.1). Note: All four electronic
surface ignitors will spark at the same time. However, only the burner you are
turning on will ignite.
4. Visually check that the burner has a flame.
5. Turn the control knob counterclockwise to the desired flame size. The control
knobs do not have to be set at a particular setting. Use the knob indicator settings
to adjust the flame as needed. DO NOT cook with the surface control knob in the
LITE position. (The electronic ignitor will continue to spark if the knob is left in the
LITE position.)
Fig. 1
Do not place plastic items such as salt and 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 wood spoons could catch fire
if placed too close to a flame.
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 turn the knob to desired setting. Use
caution when lighting surface burners manually.
Setting Proper Surface Burner Flame Size
For most cooking - start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower
one to complete the process. Use the recommendations below as a guide for
determining proper flame size for various types of cooking. The size and type of
utensil used and the amount of food being cooked will influence the setting needed.
*Flame Size
High Flame
Medium Flame
Low Flame
Never extend the flame beyond the outer
edge of the utensil. A higher flame simply
wastes heat and energy, and increases
the risk of being burned by the gas flame.
Type of Cooking
Start most foods; bring water to a boil; pan broiling.
Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces, gravies; steaming.
Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.
For deep fat frying - use a thermometer and adjust the surface control 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
nor cook properly.
*Note: Settings are based on using medium-weight metal or aluminum pans. Settings may vary when using other types
of pans. The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue and hardly visible in a welllighted room. Each cone of flame should be steady and sharp. Adjust or clean burner if flame is yellow-orange.
Before Setting Oven Controls
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 circulate around the pans
and cookware in the oven for even heat to reach around the food.
1 Oven Rack
This model is equipped with a blower which runs in
baking and self-cleaning mode to keep all internal components at a
cool temperature. It is possible that the blower keeps running even if
the range has been turned off, until the components have cooled down.

Oven Vent Location
The oven vent is located in the center rear on the cooktop. 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. Never close off the
openings with aluminum foil or any other material.
Removing and Replacing Oven Racks

Cooking Informations
Broiling is a method of cooking tender cuts of meat by direct heat under the broil element of the oven.
Preheating is suggested when searing rare steaks. (Remove the broiler pan before preheating. Foods will stick if placed on hot
metal.) To preheat, set the control(s) to BROIL as instructed in the Owner's Guide. Wait for the element to become red-hot,
usually about 2 minutes. Preheating is not necessary when broiling meats well-done.
To Broil
Broil on side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and serve. Always pull rack out to the "stop"
position before turning or removing food.
Determine Broiling Times
Broiling times vary, so watch the food closely. Time not only depends on the distance from element, but on the thickness and
aging of meat, fat content and doneness preferred. The first side usually requires a few minutes longer than second. Frozen
meats also require additional time.
Broiling Tips
The broiler pan and it grid allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the
high heat of the broiler.
DO NOT use the pan without its grid. DO NOT cover the grid with foil. The
exposed grease could ignite.
Should an oven fire occur, close the oven door and turn off the
oven. If the fire continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use fire extinguisher. DO
NOT put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive.
Broiler Clean-Up Tips:
To make cleaning easier, line the bottom of the broiler pan with aluminum foil. DO
Broiler Pan
NOT cover the broiler grid with foil.
To prevent grease from baking on, remove the broiler pan from the oven as soon as
cooking is completed. Use hot pads because the broiler pan is extremely hot. Pour off grease. Soak the pan in HOT, soapy
Clean the broiler pan as soon as possible after each use. If necessary, use soap-filled steel wool pads. Heavy scouring may
scratch the grid.

Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1
solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with an ammoniasoaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp cloth, then
scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all
cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use spray
oven cleaners on the cooktop.
Oven racks may be removed or left in the oven during the Self-Clean cycle for
cleaning. If removed, clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following manufacturer's
instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry.
Oven Racks
If the racks are cleaned in the Self-Clean cycle, their color will turn slightly blue and
the finish will be dull. After the Self-Clean cycle is complete, and the oven has
cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small
amount of salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack positions).
Oven Door
Use soap & water to thoroughly clean the top, sides and front of the oven door. Rinse well.
You may use a glass cleaner on the outside glass of the oven door. DO NOT immerse
the door in water. DO NOT spray or allow water or the glass cleaner to enter the door
vents. DO NOT use oven cleaners, cleaning powders or any harsh abrasive cleaning
materials on the outside of the oven door.
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The oven door gasket is made of a woven material,
on Self-Cleaning models, which is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to
rub, damage or remove this gasket.
Care & Cleaning
Self-Cleaning Oven
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
DO NOT line the oven
walls, racks, bottom or any other part of the
range with aluminum foil. Doing so will
destroy heat distribution, produce poor
baking results and cause permanent
damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil
will melt to the interior surface of the oven).
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
A Self-Cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking
temperatures) which eliminate soils completely or reduces them to a fine
powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.
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 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.
• Oven racks do not have to be removed. 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.
• 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.
NOTE: Prior to setting the Self-Clean cycle, any spills remaining on the oven
bottom should be removed.
What to Expect during Cleaning:
While the oven is in operation, the oven heats to temperatures much higher
than those used in normal cooking. Sounds of metal expansion and contraction are normal. Odor is also normal as the food soil is being removed.
Smoke may appear through the oven vent.
If heavy spillovers are not wiped up before cleaning, they may flame and
cause more smoke and odor than usual. This is normal and safe and should
not cause alarm. If available, use an exhaust fan during the self-cleaning
NOTE: A smoke eliminator in the oven vent converts most of the soil into a
colorless vapor.
Note: See additional cleaning information
for the oven door in the General Care &
Cleaning section.
To Set the Self-Clean Cycle
Refer to the Oven Control Guide for Self-Clean Cycle settings.
Care & Cleaning
Cleaning the Cooktop, Burner Heads, Caps & Grates
The cooktop is designed to make cleaning easier. Because the gas Burners are sealed, cleanups are easy when spillovers are
cleaned up immediately.
The cooktop, Burner Heads and Caps should be routinely cleaned. Keeping the Burner Head Ports clean will prevent improper
ignition and an uneven flame. Refer to the following instructions:
THE COOKTOP IS NOT REMOVABLE. Do not attempt to remove or lift the cooktop.
THE FIXED OVEN VENT IS NOT REMOVABLE. Do not attempt to remove
the fixed oven vent cover.
Use caution when replacing the Burner Caps so the Electrodes are not damaged. This may cause a delayed
ignition or prevent the burner from igniting.
Any additions, changes or conversions required in order for this appliance to perform satisfactorily must be
made by authorized servicer.
To Remove and Replace the Surface Burner Caps and Burner Heads - Remove
in the following order: (1st) surface Burner Grates, (2nd) Burner Caps and (3rd)
Burner Heads. Reverse the procedure above to replace the surface Burner Caps,
Burner Heads and Burner Grates.
Do not remove any parts from the cooktop until they have completely cooled
and are safe to handle. Do not operate the surface Burners without the Burner
Caps and Burner Heads properly in place.
To Clean the surface Burner Caps and Burner Heads- Use a soap-filled scouring
pad or a mild abrasive cleanser to clean the surface Burner Caps and Burner
Heads. The ports (or slots) around the Burner Heads must be routinely cleaned.
If residue still remains in these ports, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean
the slots or holes. For proper flow of gas and ignition of the burner—DO NOT
Burner Caps and Burner Heads in place whenever the gas Burners are in use.
To Clean the Burner Grates- The Burner Grates are dishwasher safe and may be
cleaned in the dishwasher. Remove any excessive soils before placing in the
To Clean the Cooktop and contoured 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. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners on the
cooktop. They can scratch the pocelain. Completely rinse any mild cleaners used
from the surface or the porcelain cooktop may become damaged during future
heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
