IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR COOKTOP
DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS, AREAS NEAR
THESE UNITS, OVEN HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF THE OVEN OR WARMER
DRAWER (if equipped). Both surface units and oven
heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in
color. Areas near surface units may become hot enough
to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let
clothing or other flammable materials touch these areas
until they have had sufficient time to cool. Among these
areas are the cooktop, surfaces facing the cooktop, the
oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings,
oven door and window.
• Know which knob controls each surface heating unit.
• 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. The use of undersized utensils will expose a
portion of the surface heating unit to direct contact and
may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of
utensil to the surface unit will also improve efficiency.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Should
Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface Units—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
unit.
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.
Never use your appliance for warming or
heating the room.
•
Do Not Use Water or Flour on Grease Fires—Smother
the fire with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry
chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
•
When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or
grease may catch fire if allowed to become too hot.
•
Use Only Dry Potholders—Moist or damp potholders
on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do
not let the potholders touch hot heating surface units or
interior oven elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky
cloth instead of a potholder.
•
• Never Leave Surface Units Unattended—Boilovers
cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a
pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Protective liners— Do not use aluminum foil to line oven
bottom or any other part of the appliance. Only use
aluminum foil as recommended for baking if used as a
cover placed on the food. Any other used of protective
liners or aluminum foil may result in a risk of electric
shock or fire or a short circuit.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for rangetop service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer's recommendations for rangetop use.
Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers—Build up of
pressure may cause the container to burst and result
in injury.
•
Remove the oven door from any unused appliance if
it is to be stored or discarded.
•
IMPORTANT—Do not attempt to operate the oven
during a power failure. If the power fails, always turn
the oven off. If the oven is not turned off and the power
resumes, the oven may begin to operate again. Food left
unattended could catch fire or spoil.
• Do Not Use Decorative Surface Element Covers. If an
element 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.
FOR GLASS COOKTOPS ONLY
• Do Not Clean or Operate a Broken Cooktop —If
cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers
may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of
electric shock. Contact a qualified technician
immediately.
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.
• Clean Cooktop Glass 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 harmful fumes if applied to a hot surface.

Important Safety Instructions
SELF-CLEANING OVENS:
• Avoid scratching the cooktop glass with sharp
objects.
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts of the
oven listed in this owner's guide. Before self-cleaning
the oven, remove the broiler pan and any utensils stored in
the oven.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR OVEN
• Use Care When Opening Door or Warmer Drawer (if
equipped)—Stand to the side of the appliance when
opening the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam
escape before you remove or replace food in the oven/
warmer drawer.
• Do not clean the oven door gasket. The door gasket is
essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub,
damage or move the gasket.
• Oven racks. Oven racks color will change if left in the oven
during a self-cleaning cycle.
• Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven is
vented at the front above the oven door. Touching the
surfaces in this area when the oven is operating may
cause severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heatsensitive items on or near the oven vent. These items
could melt or ignite.
• Do not use oven cleaners. No oven cleaner or oven liner
protective coating of any kind should be used in or around
any part of the oven.
• Remove oven racks. Oven racks color will change if left in
the oven during a self-cleaning cycle.
• Placement of Oven/Warmer Drawer (if equipped)
Racks. Always place oven racks in desired location while
oven/drawer (if equipped) is cool. Remove all utensils
from the rack before removing rack. 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 oven
element or interior of the oven/warmer drawer (if
equipped).
The health of some birds is extremely
sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-clean
cycle of any range. Move birds to another well ventilated
room.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
• Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The broiler
pan and grid allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away
from the high heat of the broiler.
• Do not cover the broiler or warmer drawer (if
equipped) grid 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.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING
YOUR RANGE
• 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. Greasy deposits in the fan
could catch fire. Refer to the hood manufacturer's instructions for cleaning.
• Cleaners/aerosols—Always follow the manufacturer's
recommended directions for use. Be aware that excess
residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing
damage and/or injury.

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.
Make sure the diameter of the pan matches the diameter of the
element outline on the cooktop (See Fig. 1).
Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop to the
cookware. Only flat-bottom 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.

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.
Locations of the Radiant Surface Elements and Controls
Your range is equipped with radiant surface elements with different wattage
ratings. The ability to heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as
the element wattage increases.
The radiant surface elements are located on the cooktop as follows:
Model A (See Fig. 1):
- Two dual 5 or 7 inch radiant element at the right and left rear position;
- Two dual 6 or 9 inch radiant element at the right and left front position;
Model B (see Fig. 1):
- Two 6 inch radiant elements at the right rear and left front positions;
- A 8 inch radiant element at the left rear position;
- A dual 6 / 9 inch radiant element at the right front position;
Model D shown Only - Fig. 2
NOTE: Please read detailed instructions for ceramic
glass cooktop cleaning in the General Care &
Cleaning section and Before You Call checklist
section of this Use and Care Guide.
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 smooth
top. Cycling at the HI setting is normal and can occur
if the cookware is too small for the radiant element or
if the cookware bottom is not flat (Refer to page 12
under Selecting Surface Cooking Utensils).
NOTE: Due to the high intensity of heat generated by
the surface elements, the glass surface will turn green
when the element will be turned off. This phenomenon
is normal and the glass will come back to its original
white color after it has completely cooled down (White
glass cooktops only).
Model C (see Fig. 1):
- Two 6 inch radiant elements at the right and left rear positions;
- A dual 9 / 12 inch radiant element at the right front position;
- A 9 inch radiant element located at the left front position.
Model D (See Figs. 1 and 2):
- Two 6 inch radiant elements at the right and left rear positions;
- A dual 9 / 12 inch radiant element at the right front position;
- A 9 inch radiant element located at the left front position;
- A Warmer Zone radiant element located between the right and
left rear positions.
Model E (see Fig. 1):
- A 6 inch radiant element at the right rear position;
- A dual 9 / 12 inch radiant element at the right front position;
- A Bridge radiant element located at the left front & rear
positions.

Settings Table
Operating the Warmer (Warm & Ready™) Zone (Model D):
The purpose of the Warmer Zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving
temperature. Use the Warmer Zone to keep cooked foods hot such as:
vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and ovensafe dinner plates. Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat
cold food on the Warmer Zone.
All food placed on the warmer zone should be covered with a lid to maintain
quality. For best results, when warming pastries or breads, the cover should
have an opening to allow moisture to escape. Do not use plastic wrap or
aluminum foil to cover food. Plastic or aluminum may melt onto the
surface.
Use only plates, utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop
use on the Warmer Zone.
Warmer Zone Temperature Selection
Refer to the Warmer Zone table for recommended heating levels (Fig. 1). If a
particular food is not listed, start with the medium level, and adjust as needed.
Most foods can be kept at serving temperatures by using the medium level.

Surface cooking
Selecting Surface Cooking Cookware
Cookware should have flat bottoms that
make good contact with the entire surface
heating element. Check for flatness by
rotating a ruler across the bottom of the
cookware (See Fig. 1). Be sure to follow the
recommendations for using cookware as
shown in Fig. 2.
Note: The size and type of cookware used
will influence the setting needed for best
cooking results.
Fig. 1
Cookware Material types
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:
Fig. 2
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 glass 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 above).
STAINLESS STEEL - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
CAST IRON - A poor heat conductor however will retain heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached.
Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.
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.
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.

Oven Vent Location -Models
with Coil Elements
The oven is vented through the
right rear coil element. When
the oven is on, warm air is released
through the vent. This venting is
necessary for proper air circulation
in the oven and good baking
results. DO NOT block the vent.
Doing so may cause cooking
failures, fire or damage to the
appliance.
Oven Vent Location -Models with

Cooking Informations
Broiling
Broiling is a method of cooking tender cuts of meat by direct heat under the broil element of the oven.
Preheating
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 oven control(s) to
BROIL as instructed in the Electronic Oven Control Guide. Wait for the element to become
red-hot, usually about 2 minutes. Preheating is not necessary when broiling meats well-done.
Open door
to the “Broil Stop”
position when broiling.
Always pull oven rack out
to the “stop” position before turning or removing
food.
To Broil
Broil on one 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.
Determining Broiling Times
Broiling times vary, so watch the food closely. Time not only depends on the distance from
the element, but on the thickness and aging of meat, fat content and doneness preferred. The
first side usually requires a few minutes longer than the second. Frozen meats also require
additional time.
Broiling Tips
The broiler pan and its grid allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the
high heat of the broiler.
Grid
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 a fire extinguisher. DO NOT
put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive.
Broiler Pan
Broiler Clean-Up Tips:
• To make cleaning easier, line the bottom of the broiler pan with aluminum foil. DO 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 water.
• 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.

Cooktop Cleaning - Porcelain enamel Cooktop Models
Porcelain enamel cooktop cleaning instructions (some models)
Do not use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and can
chemically damage the cooking surface.
Before cleaning the surface cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is cool.
DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners on the exterior surfaces including rangetop and door frame.
Correct and consistent cleaning is essential to maintaining your porcelain enamel cooktop. If food spills and grease spatters
are not removed, they may burn onto the surface of the cooktop and cause permanent discoloration.
Daily Cleaning
For normal soil:
1. Allow cooktop surface to cool.
2. Wipe off spills and spatters using a clean paper towel or a clean cloth with warm, soapy water.
3. If needed, use a soapy steel wool pad or other mild household cleaners.
4. Be sure to rinse off the cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating.
For heavy, burned-on soil:
1. Allow cooktop surface to cool.
2. Use a soap filled scouring pad with warm water or cover heavily soiled spots with a solution of clear water and ammonia.
Scour gently. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
3. If any soil remains, apply a few drops of a recommended cooktop cleaning cream on the spots and rub gently using a clean
damp cloth or scouring pad. Buff with a dry cloth until all soil and cream are removed. Frequent cleaning with the cooktop
cleaning cream leaves a protective coating which helps in preventing scratches and abrasions.
For sugary spillovers:
Sugary spills can chemically damage your cooktop surface. Therefore, you must begin cleaning the spills while the cooktop
is still hot. Use caution when following the steps below.
1. Turn off all surface units and remove all pans immediately.
2. Wearing an oven mitt, wipe up carefully or move hot spills away from the element area with a clean damp cloth.
3. Allow the cooktop to cool. Follow the instructions above for heavy, burned-on soil.
COOKTOP CLEANING / POLISHING CREAM can be purchased through authorized service centers or major department
stores.

Care & Cleaning
Models with Ceramic Glass Cooktop
Ceramic Glass Cooktop Cleaning & Maintenance
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your Ceramic glass cooktop
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Creme to the ceramic
surface. Clean and buff with a non abrasive cloth or 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 bottoms can mark or scratch
the cooktop surface. Do not slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop. Do
not use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the kitchen. Do not cook
foods directly on the cooktop surface without a pan. Do not drop heavy or hard
objects on the glass cooktop, or they may crack it.
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and can
chemically damage the ceramic glass surface.
Cleaning Recommendations for the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Creme directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or a Multi-Purpose No
Scratch Scrub Sponge to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no
residue. Do not use the sponge you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.
For heavy, burned on soil:
First, clean the surface as described above. Then, 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.
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use any scrub pad
other than a Multi-Purpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge.
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.
23
Care & Cleaning
Models with Ceramic Glass Cooktop (Continued)
Do not use the following on the ceramic glass cooktop:
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as metal and some
nylon pads. They may scratch the cooktop, making it more difficult to clean.
• Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach, ammonia or oven
cleaners, as they may etch or discolor the cooktop.
• Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as they can leave soil or lint
on the cooktop which can burn and cause discoloration.
Special Caution for Aluminum Foil and Aluminum Cooking Utensils
• Aluminum foil
Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not use under any circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils
Since the melting point of aluminum is much lower than that of other metals, care must be taken when aluminum pots
or pans are used. Pans that boil dry may permanently damage cooktop by breaking, fusing to, or marking it.
Care and Cleaning of Stainless Steel (Stainless Steel models only)
Some models are equipped with stainless steel exterior parts. Special care and cleaning are required for maintaining the
appearance of stainless parts. Please refer to the table provided at the beginning of the General Care & Cleaning section
in this Use & Care Guide.
Oven Cleaning
Cleaning the Regular Oven (non self-clean oven, some models)
Make sure the oven is cool and that all control knobs are et OFF position. Cleaning the
oven is a lot easier when the door is removed.
1. Remove the oven door; see under To Remove and Replace the Oven Door in this Owner's
Guide.
2. Empty the oven including the racks.
3. You can wash the broiler pan, grid and racks in the kitchen sink.
4. Clean oven lining thoroughly with soap and a wet cloth and wipe with a dry cloth.
To remove burned-on fat on oven walls, moisten soiled parts with household ammonia,
using a wet cloth. Follow suggested manufacturer's cleaning method. (Do not remove the
oven door when using ammonia.)
Complete cleaning with a damp cloth and use a fine steel wool scouring agent if necessary.
The lower element can be moved up for cleaning purposes.
5. Replace racks in the oven. Reinstall oven door.

Care & Cleaning
Oven Cleaning (Continued)
Cleaning the Self-Clean Oven (some models)
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
- Allow the oven to cool before cleaning.
- Wear rubber gloves when cleaning any exterior parts of the oven manually.
During the self-clean cycle, the outside of the wall oven 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.
Before cleaning any part of the oven, be sure the electronic oven control is turned off or else push CANCEL
pad. Wait until the oven is cool.
DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any art of the self-cleaning oven. DO NOT
clean the oven door gasket. The gasket on the oven door is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage
or move the gasket. DO NOT cooking or foil could melt and damage the oven surface.
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking temperatures) which eliminate soil completely
or reduce it to a fin powdered ash you can which away with damp cloth.

Preparing the Oven for Self-Cleaning
1. Remove all excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the selfcleaning 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 tomatoes, sauerkraut,
fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may cause a dull
spot even after cleaning.
2. Clean any soil from the oven frame and the door liner (see illustration).
These areas heat sufficiently during self-cleaning cycle to burn soil on. Clean
with soap and water.
3. Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils and any foil. These items do
not withstand high cleaning temperatures
4. Oven racks may be left in the oven or may be removed. If they go through
the clean cycle, their color will turn slightly dull. After the cycle is completed
and the oven has cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth
containing a small amount of baby oil or salad oil. This will make the racks
glide easier.
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, located on the top of the control panel.
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 cycle.
NOTE: A smoke eliminator in the oven vent converts most of the soil into a colorless vapor.
Setting the Controls for Self-Clean Cycle
For the setting of the clean cycle, refer to Timer or Electronic Oven Control Guide.

Solutions to Common Problems
Before you call for service, review this list. It may save you time and expense. The list includes common occurrences that
are not the result of defective workmanship or materials in this appliance. You will be charged for a service call while the
appliance is in warranty if the problem is not caused by defective product workmanship or materials.
Your new appliance is a carefully engineered product. Many times, what appears to be a reason to call for service requires
nothing more than a simple adjustment you can easily make in your own home or is normal operating characteristic of
appliance under certain conditions.
This list is applicable to a variety of models; some of the items will not necessarily apply to your appliance.
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION
Range is not level.
(1) Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven rack.
Adjust leveling legs at base of range until the rack is level. When range is level, cooktop
may appear out of alignment if countertop is not level. (2) Weak, unstable floor. Be sure
floor is level and can adequately support range. Contact a carpenter to correct sagging or
sloping floor. (3) Kitchen cabinet misalignment may make range appear to be unlevel. Be
sure cabinets are square and have sufficient room for range clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily.
Appliance must be accessible
for service.
(1) Cabinets not square or are built in too tight. Contact a cabinet maker to correct the
problem. (2) Contact builder or installer to make appliance accessible. (3) Carpeting
interferes with range. Provide sufficient space so range can be lifted over carpet.
Entire range or oven does not
operate.
(1) Make sure cord/plug is tightly into outlet. (2) Service wiring is not complete. (3) Power
outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric company for service.
Oven control beeps and
displays an F error code.
(1) This oven is equipped with a state of the art electronic oven controller. Among the many
features is a full time oven circuit diagnostics system. The controller
constantly monitors the internal circuitry as well as several crucial oven circuits to insure
they are all operating correctly. If at any time one of these systems fails, the controller will
immediately stop the current operation and beep continuously (flashing an F error code in
the controller display window). (2) Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press
STOP/CLEAR to clear the display and stop the beeping. Reprogram oven. If fault remains,
record fault number. Press STOP/CLEAR and contact authorized servicer.
Oven light does not work.
(1) Replace or tighten bulb. See Changing Oven Light in this owner’s Guide for instructions.
Surface unit does not heat.
(1) No power to the appliance. Check steps under “Entire Range or Oven Does Not Operate” in this Before you Call checklist. (2) Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct
control is on for the surface unit to be used.
Surface units too hot or not hot (1) Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface unit to be
used. (2) Lightweight or warped pans used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or
enough.
heavyweight cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped pans. Cookware materials and
weight of the material affect heating. Heavy-and medium- weight pans heat evenly. Because lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily.
Drip bowls are pitting or
rusting.
(1) Foods with acids, such as tomatoes, if allowed to stand in/on bowls will cause corrosion.
Remove and wash drip bowls as soon as possible after spillover. (2) Normal environment.
Houses along sea coast are exposed to salt air. Protect bowls as much as possible from
direct exposure to salt air.
Drip bowls turning color or
distorted out of shape.
(1) Bottom surface of cookware extends beyond surface elements and touches cooktop
surface. This can cause high enough temperatures to discolor the drip bowls. DO NOT use
cookware of this type. Pan sizes should be matched to the size of the element. Replacement
drip bowls may be purchased from your dealer.
Scratches or abrasions on
cooktop surface.
(1) 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. (2) Cleaning materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been used. See “Cooktop Cleaning - Ceramic Glass
Cooktop Models” section under General Cleaning. (3) Cookware with rough bottom has been
used. Use smooth, flat-bottomed cookware.

Before you call
Solutions to Common Problems
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION
Metalmarks.
(1) Sliding or scraping of metal utensils on cooktop surface. Do not slide metal utensils on
cooktop surface. Use a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning cream to remove the marks. “Cooktop
Cleaning - Ceramic Glass Cooktop Models” section under General Cleaning.
Brown streaks or specks.
(1) Boilovers are cooked onto surface. Use razor blade scraper to remove soil. “Cooktop
Cleaning - Ceramic Glass Cooktop Models” section under General Cleaning.
Areas of discoloration with
metallic sheen.
(1) Mineral deposits from water and food. Remove using a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning
cream. Use cookware with clean, dry bottoms.
Poor baking results.
(1) Many factors affect baking results. Make sure the proper 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” in the Electronic Oven Control guide.
Fan noise during cooking
operation.
(1) A cooling fan may automatically turn on and off to cool internal parts. It is normal, and the
fan may continue to run even after oven is turned off.
Flames inside oven or smoking from vent.
(1) Excessive spillovers in oven. Set self-clean cycle for a longer cleaning time. (2) Excessive spillovers in oven. This is normal, especially for pie spillovers or large amounts of grease
on the oven bottom. Wipe up excessive spillovers before starting the self-clean cycle. If
flames or excessive smoke are present, stop the self-clean cycle and follow the steps under
"Stopping or Interrupting the Self-Cleaning Cycle" in the Electronic Oven Control guide.
Oven smokes excessively
during broiling.
(1) Make sure oven is opened to Broil Stop Position. (2) Meat too close to the element.
Reposition the rack to provide proper clearance between the meat and the element. Preheat
broil element. Preheat broil element for searing. (3) Grid on broiler pan wrong side up and
grease not draining. Always place grid on the broiler pan with ribs up and slots down to allow
grease to drip into pan. (4) Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary when broiling frequently. Old grease or food spatters cause excessive smoking.
Self-cleaning cycle does not
work.
(1) Self-cleaning cycle was interrupted. Follow steps under “Stopping or Interrupting the SelfCleaning Cycle” in the Electronic Oven Control Guide. (2) Control(s) not set properly. Follow
instructions under “Oven Cleaning” in the Electronic Oven Control Guide.
Soil not completely removed
after self-cleaning cycle.
(1) Failure to clean bottom, front, top or oven, frame 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 nylon scrubber. Be careful not to damage the oven seal.
Avoid Transportation Damage to your Range
If you have to move your range into/out of your residence or when moving to a new home, it is suggested that you take the
following precautions:
1. Screw in the levelling legs under the range.
2. Remove the racks and other utensils from the oven, and from the lower drawer.
3. Use adhesive tape to firmly secure the door and the drawer to the side panels. Also attach the electric power cord in the
same manner.
4. Use a two-wheeled trolley with strap and fasten the range to it. Cover the appliance with a heavy blanket to prevent
scratches and dents.
5. Avoid pulling or pushing the control panel when moving the appliance.
