CAUTION
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR cooktop
WARNING
Use Proper Flame Size—Adjust flame size so it does
not extend beyond the edge of the utensil. The use of
undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner
flame to direct contact and may result in ignition of
clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to flame will also
improve efficiency.
•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 burner flame to
direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing.
Proper relationship of utensil to flame will also improve
efficiency.
Important Safety Instructions
•Know which knob controls each surface burner.
Place pan of food on the burner before turning it on,
and turn the burner off before removing the pan.
• 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.
WARNING
Do not use stove top grills on your 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 health.
•Always turn the knob to the full LITE position
when igniting top burners. Visually check that the
burner has lit. Then adjust the flame so it does not
extend beyond the edge of the utensil.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and
Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface Burners—To
reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable
materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact
with the utensil, the handle of the utensil should be
positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not
extend over adjacent surface burners.
• Never Leave Surface Burners Unattended at
High Heat Settings—Boilovers cause smoking and
greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has
boiled dry may melt.
• Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line
surface burner pans. Protective liners or aluminum
foil may interfere with heat and air distribution, and
combustion. Damage to the cooktop or personal injury
may result.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktop service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer’s recommendations for cooktop use.
• Do Not Use Decorative Surface Burner Covers. If
a burner is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover
will become hot and possibly melt. You will not be able
to see that the burner is on. 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 problems.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR
USING YOUR OVEN
•Use Care When Opening Oven Door or Warm
& Serve Drawer (if equipped)—Stand to the side
of the appliance when opening the door/drawer of a
hot appliance. Let hot air or steam escape before you
remove or replace food in the oven/drawer.
•Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven
is vented at the center of the cooktop. 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. WARNING
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/Warm & Serve
Drawer (if equipped) racks in desired location while
appliance is cool. Remove all utensils from the rack
before removing rack. If rack must be moved while
oven is hot, use extreme caution. Use pot holders and
grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let
pot holders contact the hot oven burner or interior of
the oven.
• Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. 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 grid or oven bottom
with aluminum foil. Exposed fat and grease could
ignite.
• Do not touch a hot oven light bulb with a damp
cloth. Doing so could cause the bulb to break.
Disconnect the appliance or shut off the power to the
appliance before removing and replacing the bulb.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR
CLEANING YOUR OVEN
•Clean the appliance 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.
5
Important Safety Instructions
•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.
•Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts of
the appliance listed in this Owner’s Guide. Before
using the self-cleaning cycle of the appliance, remove
all utensils stored in the appliance.
•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.
•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 appliance.
•Remove oven racks. Oven racks color will change if
left in the oven during a self-cleaning cycle.

before setting surface burners
Control locations of the gas surface
burners
Your built-in 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 Figures 1 & 2).
The standard burner can be used for most surface
cooking needs. The standard burners is located at the left
front position on the cooktop (see Figures 1 & 2).
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 burner
positions on the cooktop (see Figures 1 & 2).
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.

Assembly of the surface burner caps and
burner grates
It is very important to make sure that all of the Surface
Burner Caps and Surface Burner Grates are installed
correctly and at the correct locations.
1. Remove all packing material from cooktop area.
2. Discard all packing material (if applicable).
3. Unpack Burner Grates and position on the cooktop.
REMEMBER — DO NOT ALLOW SPILLS, FOOD,
CLEANING AGENTS OR ANY OTHER MATERIAL
TO ENTER THE GAS ORIFICE HOLDER OPENING.
Always keep the Burner Caps and Burner Heads in place
whenever the surface burners are in use.

setting surface burners
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 position.
3. Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position
(see figures 1 & 2). 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.)
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.
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.
*Flame Size
CAUTION
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. Pot holders, towels
or wood spoons could catch fire if placed too close to a
flame.
High Flame
(Hi)
Type of Cooking
Start most foods; bring water to a boil;
pan broiling.
Medium Flame Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces,

gravies; steaming.
Low Flame
(Lo)
Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.
CAUTION
Do not operate the burner for an extended period
of time without cookware on the grate. The finish
on the grate may chip without cookware to absorb the
heat.

 NOTE
*Note: Settings are based on using mediumweight 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. Clean burner if flame is yellow-orange.
BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Oven vent location
The oven is vented at the center rear of the cooktop.
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
OVEN VENT. Never close off the openings with
aluminium foil or any other material.
(Model B shown only)
CAUTION
Some models are equipped with a blower
which runs in baking and self-cleaning mode
to keep all internal components at a cool
temperature. The blower may keep running
even if the oven has been turned off, until the
components have cooled down.
Air circulation in the oven
If using 1 rack, place in center of oven. If using multiple
racks, stagger cookware as shown.
For best air circulation and baking results allow 2-4" (5,1
-10,2 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.
Arranging oven racks
Always arrange oven racks when THE oven is
cool (Prior to operating the oven). Always use
oven mitts when using the oven.
To remove an oven rack, pull the rack forward until it
stops. Lift up front of rack and slide out.
To replace an oven rack, fit the rack onto the guides
on the oven walls. Tilt the front of the rack upward and
slide the rack back into place.

•Flat handle oven rack (Figure 1).
•Flat oven half rack (Figure 2 & 3 - Some models).
•EffortlessTM oven rack (Figure 4 - Some models).
CAUTION
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when adjusting the
oven racks. Wait until the oven has completely cooled if
possible. Oven racks may be HOT and may cause burns.
The Flat Oven Handle Rack has an handle to facilitate
the sliding of the rack when large amount of foods weight
on it.
Figure 1
Flat handle oven rack
The Flat Oven Half Rack has a removable insert that
can provide extra space for larger food items. The right
half rack portion may still be used for other food items
like a casserole dish (See Figure 2 & 3). To remove the
insert, squeeze on the left front insert side (See Figure
5) of the rack and tilt out clockwise. To reinstall, insert
rear hooks at back of insert (See figure 5) and lay insert
down. Make sure both insert front hooks snap into rack

BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
The 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 1, 2 or 3 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 Figure 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 (Figure 1) and the other end in the hole
in the rack connector bracket (Figure 2 and as in
Figure 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 Figures 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.
CAUTION
REMOVE ALL OVEN RACKS and parts 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 all 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.

This mode of cooking enables you to obtain the best culinary
results when baking with multiple pans and racks. Multiple
rack baking may slightly increase cook time for some foods
but the overall result is time saved. Some food may cook
faster and more evenly with Convection Bake. Convection
baking uses the three elements and a fan to circulate the
oven’s heat evenly and continuously within the oven. The
oven can be programmed for Convection baking at any
temperature between 170°F to 550°F (77°C to 288°C) with
a default temperature of 350°F.

•Always preheat your oven before using the Convection
Bake mode.
•During preheat, the 3 elements and the convection fan
are used in cycle to quickly heat the oven.
•If your recipe cooking temperature has already been
converted for convection baking there is no need to reduce your oven temperature. If your recipe has not had
the temperature converted for convection baking you
can easily reduce using the Convect Convert feature.
Please see Convect Convert section on next page for
further instruction on temperature conversion.
•Use tested recipes with times adjusted for convection
baking when using this mode. Time reductions will
vary depending on the amount and type of food to be
cooked.
•When using Convection Bake with a single rack, place oven
rack in position 2 or 3. If cooking on multiple racks, place
the oven racks in positions 2 and 4; 1, 3 (offset rack) and
4 or 2, 3 and 4 if there is no offset rack supplied
•Most bakeries (except cakes) should be baked on pans
with no sides or very low sides to allow heated air to
circulate around the food.
•Food baked on pans with a dark finish will cook faster.

SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Setting Convection CONVERT
Setting Convection Roast
The Convect Convert pad is used to automatically convert
a standard baking recipe for convection baking. When
set properly, this feature is designed to display the actual
converted (reduced) temperature in the display. Convect
Convert may ONLY be used with a Convection Bake cooking
mode. It can be used with the features Delay Start and
Bake Time (see their sections for directions). If convection
conversion is used with the Bake Time and Delay Start
features, “CF” (check food) will be displayed when 75% of
the bake time complete. At this time the oven control will
sound 3 long beeps at regular intervals until baking has
finished. When the bake time has completely finished the
control will display “End” and beep at regular interval until
the CANCEL pad is pressed.
This mode is best for cooking tender cuts of beef, lamb,
park and poultry. Use this mode when cooking speed
is desired. The Convection Roasting gently browns the
exterior and seals in the juices. Convection roasting uses
the hidden bake element, the hidden convection element,
the broil element and a fan to circulate the oven’s heat
evenly and continuously within the oven. The oven can be
programmed for Convection Roasting at any temperature
between 170°F to 550°F (77°C to 288°C) with a default
temperature of 350°F.
 NOTE
To use this feature with the BAKE TIME option, the

5. Place food in the oven.
 NOTE
When using a Bake Time under 20 minutes, the Convect
Convert will not beep and display the “CF” message.
Convection Roasting Tips:
• Use a broiler pan and grid, and a roasting rack (available
by mail order). The broiler pan will catch grease spills
and the grid will help prevent spatters. The roasting rack
will hold the meat.
• Place an oven rack on rack position 1 (offset rack, if available).
• No preheat is needed in convection roast.
• Make sure the roasting rack is securely seated on the
grid in the broiler pan. The roasting rack fits on the grid
allowing the heated air to circulate under the food for even
cooking and helps to increase browning on the underside
(available by mail order only).
• There is no need to reduce the convection temperature or
to use the Convection Convert feature with this cooking
mode.
• DO NOT use the broiler pan without the grid or cover
the grid with aluminum foil (available by mail order).
• Always pull the rack out to the stop position before
removing food.
• Position food (fat side up) on the roasting rack.

Setting OVEN controls
Setting Convection BROIL
Use this mode for thicker cuts of meat, fish and poultry. The
Convection Broiling gently browns the exterior and seals in the
juices. Convection broiling uses the broil element and a fan to
circulate the oven’s heat evenly and continuously within the
oven. The oven can be programmed for Convection Broiling at
any temperature between 300°F to 550°F (204°C to 288°C) with
a default temperature of 550°F.
Convection Broiling Tips:
•For optimum browning, preheat the broil element for 5
minutes.
•Broil one side until the food is browned; turn and cook
on the second side. Season and serve.
•Always pull the rack out to the “stop” position before
turning or removing food.
• Always use a broiler pan and its grid when broiling
(available by mail order). It allows the dripping grease to
be kept away from the high heat of the broil element.
• DO NOT use the broil pan without the insert (available
by mail order). DO NOT cover the broil pan insert
with foil. The exposed grease could catch fire.
•If using a Searing Grill (available by mail order), preheat
the grill for 5 to 10 minutes before placing your meat.

SETTING BROIL
This mode is best for meats, fish and poultry up to 1”
thick. Broiling is a method of cooking tender cuts of meat
by direct heat under the broil element of the oven. The
high heat cooks quickly and gives a rich, brown outer appearance. The BROIL pad controls the Broil feature. An
optional Searing Grill, Broiler Pan and Insert are available
via the enclosed accessories brochure (Figure 2 & 3). The
optional broil pan and broil pan insert used together allow
dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the high
heat of the oven broiler. The oven can be programmed
to broil at any temperature from 400°F to 550°F with a
default temperature of 550°F.
Broiling Tips:
•For optimum browning, preheat the broil element for 5
minutes.
•Broil one side until the food is browned; turn and cook
on the second side. Season and serve.
•Always pull the rack out to the “stop” position before
turning or removing food.
•Always use the broiler pan and its cover when broiling.
It allows the dripping grease to be kept away from the
high heat of the broil element (see Figure 2).
•For best broiling results, broil with the oven door in the
broil stop position (see Figure 1).
•If using a Searing Grill (available by mail order), preheat
the grill for 5 to 10 minutes before placing your meat.
•DO NOT use the broil pan without the insert. DO NOT
cover the broil pan insert with foil. The exposed
grease could catch fire.
Accessories available via the enclosed brochure:

Adjusting Oven Temperature
The temperature in the oven has been pre-set at the
factory. When first using the oven, be sure to follow recipe
times and temperatures. If you think the oven is cooking
too hot or too cool for the temperature you select, you
can adjust the actual oven temperature to be more or less
than what is displayed. Before adjusting, test a recipe by
using a temperature setting that is higher or lower than the
recommended temperature. The baking results should help
you to decide how much of an adjustment is needed.
 NOTE
The oven temperature adjustments made with this feature
will not change the Self-Clean cycle temperature or the Broil
temperature.
Oven light
The oven is equipped with 2 oven lights. The oven lights will
turn on automatically, when the oven door is opened.
The oven light may be turned on when the door is closed by

SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Self-cleaning
What to Expect during 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.
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.
IMPORTANT
Adhere to the following cleaning 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.
• Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils
and any aluminum foil. These items cannot
withstand high cleaning temperatures and will melt.
• Completely remove ALL OVEN RACKS and
ANY ACCESSORIES. If the oven racks are not
removed, they will lose their special coating
properties and will no longer slide in and out
of the oven cavity effortlessly.
• 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.
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.
CAUTION
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.
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 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 VERY HOT.

Care & Cleaning
Cleaning the cooktop, burner 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:
IMPORTANT
THE COOKTOP IS NOT REMOVABLE. Do not
attempt to remove or lift the cooktop.
CAUTION
Pay attention to not damage electrodes. Damaged
electrodes may cause a delayed ignition or prevent the
burner from igniting.
CAUTION
Any additions, changes or conversions required in order
for this appliance to perform satisfactorily must be
made by an authorized Service Center.
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. The ports
(or slots) around the Burner Heads must be routinely
checked. If residue remains in these ports (or slots), 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 ALLOW SPILLS, FOOD, CLEANING AGENTS
OR ANY OTHER MATERIAL TO ENTER THE GAS
ORIFICE HOLDER OPENING. ALWAYS keep the
surface Burner Caps in place whenever the gas Burners
are in use or not.
To Clean the Burner Grates- Be sure burners and
grates are cool before you place your hand, a pot
holder, cleaning cloths or other material on them. The
cast iron burner grates can be washed in hot soapy
water. Rinse thoroughly and dry the grates with a cloth don't put them on the cooktop while still wet. Be sure the
grates are positioned securely over the burners.
To remove burned on food, place the grates in a covered
container or plastic bag. Add 1/4 cup ammonia and soak for
30 minutes. Wash, rinse well and dry. An abrasive cleaner
can be used for stubborn stains.
To Clean the Cooktop and contoured areas of the
cooktop- If a spill occurs on the porcelain cooktop,
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 porcelain.

IMPORTANT
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.
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION
Range is not level.
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.
Weak, unstable floor. Be sure floor is level and can adequately support range. If floor is sagging or
slopping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
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.
Cabinets not square or are built in too tight. Contact a cabinet maker to correct the problem.
Contact builder or installer to make appliance accessible.
