Important Safety Instructions
•DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS, AREAS NEAR
THESE UNITS, OVEN HEATING ELEMENTS OR
INTERIOR SURFACES OF THE OVEN. 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.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR cooktop
•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.
•Know which knob controls each surface heating
unit. Place pan of food on the element before turning
it on, and turn the element off before removing the
pan.
WARNING
NEVER use your appliance as a space heater to
heat or warm 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 Pot holders. Moist or damp pot
holders on hot surfaces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let the pot holders touch hot surface
units. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of
a pot holder.
•Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers. Buildup
of pressure may cause the container to burst and
result in injury.
•Remove the oven door from any unused

CAUTION
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.
•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 unit. The use of undersized utensils will expose
a portion of surface heating unit to direct contact and
may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of
utensil to the surface 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.
•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 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 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 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.
Important Safety Instructions
FOR COOKTOPS WITH COIL ELEMENTS ONLY
• Do Not Immerse or Soak Removable Surface
HeatingElements. Surface heating elements should
never be immerse in water. Heating elements clean
themselves during normal operation.
• Make Sure Drip Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place.
Absence of these pans or bowls during cooking may
subject wiring or components underneath to damage.
FOR GLASS COOKTOP 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.
•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.
•Avoid Scratching the Cooktop Glass with Sharp
Objects.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR
USING YOUR OVEN
•Use Care When Opening Oven Door—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 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. 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 Racks. Always place oven 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
element 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.
•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.
FOR Self-CLEANING OVEN
•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.
CAUTION
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off during the self-clean cycle of any wall
oven. Move birds to another well ventilated room.

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 Figure 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:
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).
Figure 1
Be sure to follow the recommendations for using
cookware as shown in Figure 2.
CORRECT
• Flat bottom and straight
sides.
INCORRECT
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.
• Curved and warped pan
bottoms.
PORCELAIN-ENAMEL on METAL - Heating
characteristics will vary depending on base material.
Porcelain-enamel coating must be smooth to avoid
scratching ceramic cooktops.
• 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.
STAINLESS STEEL - Slow heat conductor with uneven
cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists
staining.
• Pan overhangs unit by
more than one-half inch.
GLASS - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for
ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the
glass.
• Pan is smaller than the
element.
• Made of material that
conducts heat well.
• Easy to clean.
• Always match pot
diameter to element
surface diameter.
• Heavy handle tilts the
pan.
Figure 2
 NOTE
The size and type of cookware used will influence the
setting needed for best cooking results.

SURFACE COOKING
Specialty Pans & Trivets
Woks with flat bottoms suitable for use on your cooktop
are available in most cookshop or hardware stores.
Round-bottomed woks (with a support ring that does
not extend beyond the heating element) may also be
used. The metal ring was designed to support the wok
safely when it is filled with large amounts of liquids (soup
making) or fat (frying).
CAUTION
DO NOT use two elements (if the cooktop is not equipped
with bridge element) to heat one large pan such as a
roaster or griddle, or allow cooking utensils to boil dry.
The bottom surface of the pan in either of these situations
could cause discoloring or crazing of the porcelain enamel
range surface, and damage to the surface elements and/
or damage to the drip pans (if equipped).
Canning Tips & Information
1. Use tested recipes and follow instructions carefully.
Check with your local Cooperative Agricultural
Extension Service or a manufacturer of glass jars for
the latest canning information.
2. Use flat-bottomed canners only. Heat is spread more
evenly when the bottom surface is flat.
3. Center canner on the burner grate.
4. Start with hot water and a high heat setting to
reduce the time it takes to bring the water to a boil;
then reduce the heat setting as low as possible to
maintain a constant boil.
5. It is best to can small amounts and light loads.
CAUTION
Wire trivets: Do not use wire trivets. Cookware bottoms
Canning can generate large amounts of steam. Use
extreme caution to prevent burns. Always raise the lid
to vent steam away from you.
DO NOT use a wok if it is equipped with a metal ring
that extends beyond the surface element. Because
this ring traps heat, the surface element and cooktop
surface could be damaged.
Prevent damage to cooktop and burner grates:
1. Do not use water bath or pressure canners that
extend more than one inch beyond the edge of the
burner grate.
2. Do not leave water bath or pressure canners on
high heat for an extended amount of time.
3. Alternate surface units between each batch to
allow the units and surrounding surfaces to cool
down. Try to avoid canning on the same burner
unit all day.
must be in direct contact with the surface elements.
For glass smoothtop models,
only flat bottomed woks
(without support rings) may
be used.
10
Safe canning requires that harmful micro-organisms are
destroyed and the jars are sealed completely. When
canning in a water bath canner, a gentle but steady boil
must be maintained continuously for the required time.
Before SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Ceramic Glass Cooktop (some models)
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.
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.
CAUTION
The cooktop should not be used as a cutting board or
work surface.
Dropping heavy or hard objects on the cooktop may crack it.
Pans with rough bottoms may scratch the cooktop surface.
Placing foods directly on the smoothtop surface
(without cooking utensil) is not recommended as
difficult cleaning will result and foods may smoke and
cause a potential fire hazard.
Never use the griddle or similar cooking sheet on the
ceramic glass cooktop.
 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.
CAUTION
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.
Types of the heating elements used
Your cooktop is equipped with radiant surface radiant
elements with different wattage ratings. The ability to
heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as the
element wattage increases.
 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).
 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.
Be sure to 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.
Do not allow aluminum foil, or ANY material that
can melt to make contact with the ceramic glass
cooktop. If these items melt on the cooktop they will
damage the ceramic cooktop.
11
Before SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Element ON (all models)
Your appliance is equipped with two different types of
radiant surface control indicator lights that will glow on
the backguard- the Element On indicator light and the
hot surface indicator lights.
The element ON indicator lights are located on the
control panel (Figure 1) between the two radiant element
control knob and will glow when a surface element is
turned ON.
Hot surface indicator light
(Model C only)
The hot surface indicator light located on the cooktop
(Figure 2) will glow when any surface cooking area heats

BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Oven Vent Location
On model A, the oven is vented through the right rear
coil element (Figure 1) and on models B & C, the oven
vent is located through the upper front trim and
visible when the oven door is open (Figure 2).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.
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.
(Figure 1)
(Figure 2)
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"
(5-10cm) 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.

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 1 & 2). 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.
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 1).
•For best broiling results, broil with the oven door in the
broil stop position (see Figure 3).
•If using a Searing Grill (available by mail order), preheat
the grill for 5 to 10 minutes before placing your meat.

Recalibrating Your Oven Temperature
Recalibrating Your Oven Temperature
The temperature in the oven has been set at the factory.
When first using the oven, be sure to follow recipe times
and temperatures. If you think the oven is too hot or too
cool, the temperature in the oven can be adjusted. Before
adjusting, test a recipe by using a temperature setting
that is higher or lower than recommended temperature.
The baking results should help you to decide how much
of an adjustment is needed.
To Adjust Oven Temperature:
1. Push the BAKE pad.
2. Set the temperature to 550°F (287°C) by pushing
and holding the UP ARROW pad.
3. Within 2 seconds, push and hold the BAKE pad until
the special 2 digit display appears. Release the BAKE
pad. The display now indicates the amount of degrees offset between the original factory temperature
setting and the current temperature setting. If the
oven control has the original factory calibration, the
display will read "00."
4. The temperature can now be adjusted up or down
35°F (17°C), in 5°F (1°C) steps by pushing and
holding the UP or DOWN ARROW pad. Adjust until
the desired amount of degrees offset appears in the

Setting OVEN controls - Models B & C
Self-cleaning
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures
(well above normal cooking temperatures) which
eliminate soils completely or reduces them to a fine
powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.
IMPORTANT
Adhere to the following 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.
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 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
Ceramic glass cooktop cleaning &
maintenance (Models B & C only)
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.
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.

Care & Cleaning
Cleaning recommendations for the
ceramic glass cooktop (Models B & C only)
CAUTION
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are
turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
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.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly
to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a nonabrasive plastic type no-scratch 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 CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly
to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a nonabrasive plastic type no-scratch pad, applying pressure
as needed. Do not use the pad you use to clean the
cooktop for any other purpose.
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.
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 Special
Caution for Aluminum Foil and Aluminum
Cooking Utensils
IMPORTANT
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you
use an abrasive type scratch pad. Only use cleaning
products that have been specifically designed for
ceramic glass cooktop.
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, then apply a few drops
of cleaning cream and buff surface clean.

before you call (Solutions to Common Problems)
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.
Carpet interferes with range. Provide sufficient space so range can be lifted over carpet.
Gas line is hard-plumbed. Have a flexible C.S.A international approved metal appliance
connector installed.
