IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR COOKTOP
• 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.
• 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.
• 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 Heat Unopened Food Containers. Buildup
of pressure may cause the container to burst and
result in injury.
• Never Leave Surface Units Unattended—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
appliance if it is to be stored or discarded.
• 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.
4
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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.
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 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 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/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 element or interior of
the oven/Warm & Serve Drawer (if equipped).
• 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.
• 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.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE

BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
About the ceramic glass cooktop
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements
located below the surface of the glass. The design of the
ceramic cooktop outlines the area of the surface element
underneath. Be sure to match the pan size with the
diameter of the element outline on the cooktop and only
flat-bottom cookware should be used.
Model A only:
The hot surface indicator light located on the cooktop
(Figure 2) will glow when any surface cooking area heats
up and will remain on until the glass cooktop has cooled
to a MODERATE level.
The type and size of cookware, the number of surface
elements in use and their settings, are all factors that
will affect the amount of heat that will spread to areas
beyond the surface elements. The areas surrounding the
elements may become hot enough to cause burns.
About the radiant surface elements
The element temperature rises gradually and evenly.
As the temperature rises, the element will glow red. To
maintain the selected setting the element will cycle on and
off. The heating element retains enough heat to provide a
uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle.
For efficient cooking, turn off the element several minutes
before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat
to complete the cooking process.
Element ON & hot surface indicator lights
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.
Figure 2 - Model A only
Hot surface indicator light location.
 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.
Figure 1
Element ON indicator light location.

BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
The electronic surface element control
(ESEC) (Models B & C only)
The Electronic Surface Element Control (ESEC) feature
includes digital display windows. The ESEC feature
provides a numeric digital setting for the radiant surface
element positions on the cooktop. These settings work
the same way as normal knob setting indicators work
except the settings are displayed in digital windows.
The available ESEC display settings
The ESEC control provides various heat levels from Hi
(Figure 2) to Lo (Figure 5) and OFF (Figure 1). The
settings between 3.0 and 9.5 increase or decrease in
increments of .5 (1/2). The settings between 1.2 and
3.0 are Simmer settings which decrease or increase in
increments of .2 (1/5) to Lo (Figure 5; lowest Simmer
setting) for more precise settings at lower heat levels. Use
the Recommended Surface Setting Chart to determine the
correct setting for the kind of food you are preparing.
Fig. 2
Figure 1
Figure 2
Figure 3
Figure 6
Figure 7
ESEC power failure indicator message (PF)
When the range is first plugged in or when the power
supply to the range has been interrupted, the ESEC
control will display the message "PF" (Power Failure;
Figure 6). After a few seconds the "PF" message will
disappear from the display.
ESEC hot element indicator message (HE)
After using any of the single or dual radiant element
positions the cooktop will become very hot. Even after
turning the control knob to OFF, the cooktop will remain
hot for some time. The ESEC control monitors the
temperature of the cooktop and displays the message
“HE” (hot element) warning when the cooktop is still too
hot to touch (Figure 4). If the HE message appears in the
window, the control can still be turned ON again for use.
ESEC error indicator message (Er)
An error message will be displayed (glowing “Er”) at
power up (or after a power failure) if ANY of the surface
control knobs were left in the ON positions (Figure 7).
If a power failure should occur, be sure to set all of the
surface control knobs to the OFF position. This will reset
the surface controls.
Once the surface controls have been set to the OFF
positions, the surface controls should return to normal
operation. If the surface controls do not function and
the “Er” message remains in any display after following
these procedures, contact your authorized servicer for
assistance.
ESEC Lockout Feature ( - - )
The ESEC feature will not operate during a Self-Clean
cycle or when the Lockout feature is active. Whenever
the Lockout feature is active, “ - - “ will appear in any
ESEC digital display windows (See Figure 8) to show that
all surface elements can not be activated.

Control knobs shown are typical only.
Surface cooking settings
Use the chart to determine the correct setting for the
type of food you are preparing.
Note: The size and type of cookware used will influence
the setting needed for best cooking results.
Recommended Setting for Surface Element
Setting
Type of Cooking
HIGH (HI)
Start most foods; bring water to a boil
and pan broiling.
MEDIUM HIGH
(8-10)
Continue a rapid boil; frying, deep fat
frying.
MEDIUM (6)
Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces
and gravies; steaming vegetables.
MEDIUM LOW
(2 - 4)
Keep foods cooking; poaching and
stewing.
LOW (LO)
Keep warm, melting and simmering.
 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.
BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Using proper cookware
Cookware material types
Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good
contact with the entire surface heating element (Figure
1). Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the
bottom of the cookware (Figure 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.
The size and type of cookware used will influence the
setting needed for best cooking results. Be sure to follow
the recommendations for using proper cookware as
illustrated in Figures 1 & 2.
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:
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.
Figure 1
 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).
Figure 2
11
SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Single radiant surface elements (all models)
The cooktop has 2 or 3 SINGLE radiant surface elements:
the left rear position (Figures 1, 2 & 3), the right rear
position (Figures 1 and 2), and the right front position
(Figures 1 and 3). The left rear element may also be used
with the Bridge element (Model C only - Figure 3).
To Operate the Single Radiant Surface Elements
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the radiant surface
element.
2. Push in and turn the surface control knob in either
direction to the desired setting (Figure 4). Start most
cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn
to a lower setting to finish cooking. Each surface
element provides a constant amount of heat at each
setting. A glowing red surface heating area extending
beyond the bottom edge of the cookware indicates
the cookware is too small for the surface heating
area.
3. When cooking has completed, turn the surface
control knob to OFF before removing the cookware.
 NOTE
The surface “Element On” indicator lights will glow
when one or more elements are turned on. A quick
glance at these indicator lights when cooking is finished
is an easy check to be sure all surface elements are
turned off.
Figure 1 - Model A
Figure 2 - Model B
Figure 3 - Model C
 NOTE
See Recommended Setting for Surface Element table on
page 10.
CAUTION
Do not place plastic items such as salt and
pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic
wrappings on cooktop when it is in use. These
items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or
wooden spoons could catch fire if placed too close to
the surface elements.
CAUTION
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.
12
Figure 4 - Control knob shown is typical only.
CAUTION
Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled
after they have been turned OFF. HE (Hot Element)
message (Models B & C) or the hot surface indicator
light (Model A) will turn ON and will continue to glow
until the glass cooktop has cooled down to a moderate
level. The glass surface may still be hot and burns
may occur if the glass surface is touched before the
indicator light has turned OFF. The message may
remain on even though the controls are turned OFF.
SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Dual Surface Radiant Element (all models)
The cooktop is equipped with 1 or 2 dual radiant surface
elements located at the left front (Figures 1& 2) and
the right front (Figure 2) or the right rear (Figure 3)
position. Symbols around the knob are used to indicate
which coil of the dual radiant element will heat. The
symbol indicates that only the inner coil will heat (Figure
4). The
symbol indicates that both inner and outer
coils will heat (Figure 5). You may switch from either coil
setting at any time during cooking.
Figure 1 - Model A
To Operate the Dual Surface Element

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Bridge surface radiant element (Model C only)
The cooktop is equipped with a “BRIDGE” surface element
located at the left front and middle (Fig. 1) positions.
The Bridge can be used when cooking with rectangular
(like a griddle) or oval shaped cookware. The element
will maintain an even temperature setting across both
portions of the Bridge. If needed for normal cookware,
the Bridge element can work like a single element without
the Bridge (Fig. 4). The symbol indicates that only the
front potion will heat (Fig. 2). The symbol indicates that
both front and middle portions will heat (Fig. 3). You may
switch from either coil setting at any time during cooking.
To Operate the Bridge Surface Element
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the Bridge surface
element.
2. Push in and turn the control knob as shown in Figure
2 to heat the front portion of the Bridge element for
normal shaped cookware or in Figure 3 for larger
or rectangular shaped cookware. Turn the knob to
adjust the setting if needed. Start most cooking
operations on a higher setting and then turn to a
lower setting to finish cooking. Each surface element
provides a constant amount of heat at each setting.
A glowing red surface heating area extending
beyond the bottom edge of the cookware indicates
the cookware is too small. Please note that not all
cookware will fit the Bridge element correctly.
3. When cooking has completed, turn the surface
control knob to OFF before removing the cookware.
The BRIDGE element may also be used in combination
with the left rear single element (Fig. 6). Because these
elements have 2 different controls, one element can be
used to cook while the other element may be used to
keep food warm.

Keep warm zone (Models B & C only)
The purpose of the keep warm zone is to keep hot
cooked foods at serving temperature. Use the keep warm
feature to keep cooked foods hot such as: vegetables,
gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and
oven-safe dinner plates.
Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to
heat cold food on the keep warm zone. All food placed
on the keep warm 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 to cover food.
Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very
difficult to clean. Use only plates, utensils and
cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use on the
keep warm zone.
To Set the keep warm zone control
NOTE: The controls and indicator light are located on the
control panel.
1. Touch the on●off pad (Fig. 4) at the keep warm zone
control position. The keep warm indicator light will flash.
Note: If no further pads are touched within 25 seconds
the request to power the keep warm zone ON will clear.
2. At the keep warmer zone controls position touch
once to turn ON the power level for HI (Fig. 1) or to
turn ON the power level for LO (Fig. 3).
3. Each touch or will increase or decrease the
power levels. The keep warm zone has 5 power levels
from HI (Fig. 1) through MED (Fig. 2) to LO (Fig. 3).
The power level may be adjusted at any time while
the keep warm zone is ON.
4. When it is time to serve the food, touch the on●off
pad once to turn the keep warm zone OFF. The keep
warm zone indicator light will turn OFF.
CAUTION
The keep warm zone will not glow red when it is hot,
but becomes hot enough to cause burns. Avoid placing
hands on or near the keep warm zone until the keep
warm zone hot surface indicator light is OFF. Always
use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from
the keep warm zone as cookware and plates will be
hot.
CAUTION
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper
shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or
ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could catch
fire if placed too close to the surface elements.
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.
Keep warm zone temperature selection
Refer to the keep warm zone table for recommended
heating levels. 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.

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"
(5-10 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.

Figure 1 - All models
Flat handle oven rack
Figure 2 - Model A only
Offset oven rack
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.
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 3 & 4). To remove the
insert, squeeze on the left front insert side (See Figure
6) of the rack and tilt out clockwise. To reinstall, insert
rear hooks at back of insert (See figure 6) and lay insert
down. Make sure both insert front hooks snap into rack
(See figure 7).
The Offset Oven Rack is used to maximize cooking
space (See Figure 2). The offset rack can be used in
the lower rack position to roast large cuts of meat and
poultry.
Do not use cookware that extends beyond the edge
of the Flat Half Rack. For best results, allow 2 inches
between the pan placed on the rack and oven side or

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.
Make sure the oven and oven racks are COMPLETELY
cooled and safe to touch before attempting to assemble
or disassemble the Effortless™ Oven Rack system.
Never pick up hot oven rack parts.

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 with a default
temperature of 350°F.
Convection Baking Tips:
• 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 Convection Convert
feature. Please see Convection 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 Convection 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. Convection
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 had
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 with a default temperature of 350°F.
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.

is set for the Sabbath feature.
Should you experience a power failure or interruption, the
oven will shut off. When power is returned, “SF” (Sabbath
Failure) will be shown in the oven display and the cooktop
displays (models B & C). The oven and cooktop will not turn
back on automatically. If your food was nearly fully cooked,
you may allow the trapped heat in the oven to finish the
cooking process. Otherwise, you should remove the food
when the power failure occurs, because you may only start
the oven once during the Sabbath/Jewish Holidays. After the
Sabbath observance, turn OFF the Sabbath feature and be
sure that all the control knobs are at the OFF position. The
appliance may be used again with all normal functions.
After the Sabbath observance turn OFF the Sabbath feature.
Press and hold both the BAKE TIME and DELAY pads for at
least 3 seconds. “SAb” will disappear from the display and
the oven may be used with all normal functions. For further
assistance, guidelines for proper usage, and a complete list
of models with the Sabbath feature, please visit the web at

How the Electronic Surface Element Controls
work when the Sabbath feature is ON.
(model B & C only)
When your Oven Sabbath feature is ON, the Electronic
Surface Elements are also in Sabbath mode. This means
that all electronic surface element control displays show
“Sb”. The surface elements can be used even if the Sabbath
Feature is on.
To turn ON a Surface Element when the Oven Sabbath
Feature is active:
If you turn on a surface element when the oven Sabbath
feature is on, the electronic surface element control will record
that request and execute it with a 15-30 seconds delay. So
the element will start heating 15-30 seconds after the surface
element control was turned on. As the oven control, the
surface element display will not show the setting because
“Sb” is on in the displays. When necessary, it is possible to
adjust the power of the surface element but you have to
remember that the surface element control will adjust the
temperature with the same delay.
To turn OFF the Surface Element when the Oven
Sabbath Mode is active:
To shut off the surface element while the Sabbath feature
is ON, proceed as usual but take note that the element will
immediately turn off without any delay.

SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
ADJUSTING OVEN TEMPERATURE
OVEN LIGHT
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.
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
using the oven light pad located on the control panel. The
oven light key will toggle the lights at full intensity.
 NOTE
The oven temperature adjustments made with this feature
will not change the Self-Clean cycle temperature or the Broil
temperature.
To adjust the oven temperature higher
1. Press BAKE for 6 seconds. “UPO 0” will appear in the
display.
2. To increase the temperature use the number pads to enter
the desired change (Example 30°F) 3 0. The temperature
may be increased as much as 35°F (19°C).
3. Press START to accept the temperature change and the
display will return to the time of day. Press CANCEL to
reject the change if necessary.
To adjust the oven temperature lower
1. Press BAKE for 6 seconds. 0° will appear in the
display.
2. To decrease the temperature use the number pads to
enter the desired change (Example -30°F) 3 0 and then
press SELF CLEAN. The temperature may be decreased
as much as 35°F (19°C).
3. Press START to accept the temperature change and the
display will return to the time of day. Press CANCEL to
reject the change if necessary.
 NOTE
The oven temperature adjustments are permanent and
will stay forever in the unit memory unless you manually
change it again. Even a power outage will not reset these
changes. Follow the same procedure again if you wish to
change it to a different setting.

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
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.
Cleaning recommendations for the
ceramic glass cooktop
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.
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.
37
CARE & CLEANING
Cleaning recommendations for the
ceramic glass cooktop (continued)
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
• 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
Some models are equipped with stainless steel exterior
parts. Special care and cleaning are required for
maintaining the appearance of stainless parts. Refer
to the General Care & Cleaning table for detailed
cleaning instructions.

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.
Entire range or oven Make sure cord/plug is plugged tightly into outlet.

Electrical power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric company for service.
Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface unit to be used.
Surface units too
hot or not hot
enough.
Incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface unit to be used.
Drip bowls are
pitting or rusting.
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.
Lightweight or warped pans used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or heavyweight
cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped pans. Cookware materials and weight of the
material affect heating. Heavy-and medium- weight pans heat evenly. Because lightweight
pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily.
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.
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.
Metalmarks.
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.

BEFORE YOU CALL (Solutions to Common Problems)
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION
Scratches or
abrasions on
cooktop surface.
Coarse particles such as salt or sand between cooktop and utensils can cause scratches. Be
sure cooktop surface and bottoms of utensils are clean before usage. Small scratches do not
affect cooking and will become less visible with time.
Cleaning materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been used. See
"Cooktop Cleaning- Ceramic Glass Cooktop Models" section under General Cleaning.
Cookware with rough bottom has been used. Use smooth, flat-bottomed cookware.
Brown streaks or
specks.
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.
Mineral deposits from water and food. Remove using a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning
cream. Use cookware with clean, dry bottoms.
Poor baking results.
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 recipes’ recommended
temperature or baking time. If you feel the oven is too hot or cool, see "Adjusting Your
Oven Temperature" section in the Electronic Oven Control Guide.
