IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to
publish a list of substances known to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive
harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following:
■ Use this appliance only for its intended
purpose as described in this Owner’s
Manual.
■ Have the installer show you the location
of the circuit breaker or fuse. Mark it for
easy reference.
■ Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or

Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
■
CAUTION: Items of interest to
children should not be stored in cabinets
above a range or on the backsplash of a
range—children climbing on the range
to reach items could be seriously injured.
Care and Cleaning
■ Never wear loose-fitting or hanging
garments while using the appliance.
Be careful when reaching for items stored
over the range. Flammable material could
be ignited if brought in contact with hot
surface units or heating elements and may
cause severe burns.
■ Use only dry pot holders—moist or damp
pot holders on hot surfaces may result in
burns from steam. Do not let pot holders
touch hot surface units or heating
elements. Do not use a towel or other
bulky cloth in place of pot holders.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ Do not use water on grease fires. Never
pick up a flaming pan. Turn the controls
off. Smother a flaming pan on a surface
unit by covering the pan completely with
a well-fitting lid, cookie sheet or flat tray.
Use a multi-purpose dry chemical or
foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ Flaming grease outside a pan can be put
out by covering it with baking soda or,
if available, by using a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
Consumer Support
■ Flame in the oven can be smothered
completely by closing the oven door and
turning the oven off or by using a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type fire
extinguisher.
■ For your safety, never use your appliance
for warming or heating the room.
■ Do not let cooking grease or other
flammable materials accumulate in or
near the range.
■ Do not touch the surface units, the
heating elements or the interior surface
of the oven. These surfaces may be hot
enough to burn even though they are
dark in color. During and after use, do not
touch, or let clothing or other flammable
materials contact the surface units, areas
nearby the surface units or any interior
area of the oven; allow sufficient time for
cooling first.
■ Potentially hot surfaces include the
cooktop, areas facing the cooktop, oven
vent opening, surfaces near the opening,
crevices around the oven door.
■ REMEMBER: The inside surface of the oven
may be hot when the door is opened.
■ Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
■ Keep the hood and grease filters clean
to maintain good venting and to avoid
grease fires.
■ Teach children not to play with the
controls or any other part of the range.
■ Always keep dish towels, dish cloths, pot
holders and other linens a safe distance
from your range.
■ Always keep wooden and plastic utensils
and canned food a safe distance from
your range.
■ Always keep combustible wall coverings,
curtains or drapes a safe distance from
your range.
COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY…
Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meat to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 160°F. and poultry to at least
an INTERNAL temperature of 180°F. Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against foodborne illness.

RADIANT SURFACE UNITS
Use proper pan size—select cookware having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit
heating element. The use of undersized cookware will expose a portion of the surface unit to direct
contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of cookware to surface unit will
also improve efficiency.
Troubleshooting Tips

Care and Cleaning
■ Do not operate the radiant surface units if
the glass is broken. Spillovers or cleaning
solution may penetrate a broken cooktop
and create a risk of electrical shock.
Contact a qualified technician immediately
should your glass cooktop become broken.
■ Never use the glass cooktop surface as
a cutting board.
■ Do not place or store items that can melt
or catch fire on the glass cooktop, even
when it is not being used.
■ Be careful when placing spoons or other
stirring utensils on glass cooktop surface
when it is in use. They may become hot
and could cause burns.
■ Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet
sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a
hot surface unit, be careful to avoid steam
burns. Some cleaners can produce
noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
NOTE: We recommend that you avoid
wiping any surface unit areas until they
have cooled and the indicator light has
gone off. Sugar spills are the exception
to this. Please see the Cleaning the glass
cooktop section.
■ When the cooktop is cool, use only
CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic Cooktop
Cleaner and the CERAMA BRYTE®
Cleaning Pad to clean the cooktop.
■ To avoid possible damage to the cooking
surface, do not apply cleaning cream to
the glass surface when it is hot.
■ After cleaning, use a dry cloth or paper
towel to remove all cleaning cream
residue.
■ Read and follow all instructions and
warnings on the cleaning cream labels.
■ Large scratches or impacts to glass doors
or cooktops can lead to broken or
shattered glass.
Operating Instructions
■ Never leave the surface units unattended
at high heat settings. Boilovers cause
smoking and greasy spillovers that may
catch on fire.
■ Only certain types of glass, glass ⁄ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed containers are
suitable for cooktop service; others may
break because of the sudden change in
temperature.
■ To minimize the possibility of burns,
ignition of flammable materials and
spillage, the handle of a container
should be turned toward the center of
the range without extending over nearby
surface units.
■ Always turn the surface units off before
removing cookware.
■ When preparing flaming foods under
the hood, turn the fan on.
■ Use care when touching the cooktop. The
glass surface of the cooktop will retain heat
after the controls have been turned off.
■ Keep an eye on foods being fried at high
or medium high heat settings.
■ Foods for frying should be as dry as
possible. Frost on frozen foods or moisture
on fresh foods can cause hot fat to bubble
up and over the sides of the pan.
■ Use little fat for effective shallow or deep
fat frying. Filling the pan too full of fat can
cause spillovers when food is added.
■ If a combination of oils or fats will be
used in frying, stir together before heating,
or as fats melt slowly.
■ Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
■ Use a deep fat thermometer whenever
possible to prevent overheating fat beyond
the smoking point.
■ Avoid scratching the glass cooktop.
The cooktop can be scratched with items
such as sharp instruments, rings or other
jewelry, and rivets on clothing.
Safety Instructions

could burst, causing an injury.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
■ Keep the oven vent unobstructed.
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
■ Place the oven shelf in the desired position
while the oven is cool. If shelves must be
handled when hot, do not let pot holder
contact the heating elements.
Care and Cleaning
■ When using cooking or roasting bags in
the oven, follow the manufacturer’s
directions.
■ Do not use the oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch on fire.
■ Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in an oven can ignite.
■ Do not leave paper products, cooking
utensils or food in the oven when not
in use.
■ Do not use aluminum foil to line oven
bottoms, except as suggested in this
manual. Improper installation of
aluminum foil may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire.
■ Pulling out the shelf to the stop-lock is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also
a precaution against burns from touching
hot surfaces of the door or oven walls.
SELF-CLEANING OVEN
Troubleshooting Tips
Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any part of the oven. Residue from oven cleaners will damage the inside
of the oven when the self-clean cycle is used.
■ Do not clean the door gasket. The door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage or
move the gasket.
■ If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions,
turn the oven off and disconnect the
power supply. Have it serviced by a
qualified technician.
■ Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the
broiler pan, grid and other cookware.
■ Clean only parts listed in this Owner’s
Manual.
Consumer Support
■ Be sure to wipe up excess spillage before
starting the self-cleaning operation.

The temperature limiter protects the
glass cooktop from getting too hot.
■ The pan boils dry.
■ The pan bottom is not flat.
■ The pan is off center.
■ There is no pan on the unit.
Home Canning Tips
Be sure the canner is centered over the
surface unit.
Troubleshooting Tips
Make sure the canner is flat on the
bottom.
To prevent burns from steam or heat,
use caution when canning.
Flat-bottomed canners are
recommended. Use of water bath
canners with rippled bottoms may
extend the time required to bring
the water to a boil.
Wok Cooking
We recommend that you use only a flat-bottomed
wok. They are available at your local retail store.
Do not use woks that have support rings.
Consumer Support
Use recipes and procedures from
reputable sources. These are available
from manufacturers such as Ball® and
Kerr® and the Department of Agriculture
Extension Service.
Use only flat-bottomed woks.

DRAGGING
Do not slide cookware across the
cooktop because it can scratch the
glass—the glass is scratch resistant,
not scratch proof.
Care and Cleaning
■ Water stains (mineral deposits) are removable
using the cleaning cream or full strength white
vinegar.
■ Use of window cleaner may leave an
iridescent film on the cooktop. The cleaning
cream will remove this discoloration.
■ Don’t store heavy items above the cooktop.
If they drop onto the cooktop, they can cause
damage.
■ Do not use the surface as a cutting board.
Operating Instructions
Never cook directly on the glass.
Always use cookware.
The radiant cooktop features heating
units beneath a smooth glass surface.
NOTE: A slight odor is normal when a new
cooktop is used for the first time. It is caused by
the heating of new parts and insulating materials
and will disappear in a short time.
NOTE: On models with light colored glass
cooktops, it is normal for the cooking zones to
change color when hot or cooling down. This is
temporary and will disappear as the glass cools
to room temperature.
The surface unit will cycle on and off to
maintain your selected control setting.
It is safe to place hot cookware on the
glass surface even when the cooktop
is cool.
Even after the surface units are turned
off, the glass cooktop retains enough
heat to continue cooking. To avoid overcooking, remove pans from the surface
units when the food is cooked. Avoid
placing anything on the surface unit
until it has cooled completely.

Safety Instructions
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the desired position before you turn the oven on.
Before you begin…
The shelves have stops, so that when
placed correctly on the supports, they will
stop before coming completely out, and
will not tilt.
When placing and removing cookware,
pull the shelf out until it stops.
To remove a shelf, pull it toward you,
tilt the front end up and pull it out.
The oven has 6 shelf positions.
Troubleshooting Tips
CAUTION: When you are using the shelf in the
lowest position (A), you will need to use caution
when pulling the shelf out. We recommend that
you pull the shelf out several inches and then,
using two pot holders, pull the shelf out by
holding the sides of it. The shelf is low and you
could be burned if you place your hand in the
middle of the shelf and pull all the way out. Be
very careful not to burn your hand on the door
when using the shelf in the lowest position (A).
To replace, place the end of the shelf
(stop-locks) on the support, tilt up the
front and push the shelf in.

Aluminum Foil
You can use aluminum foil to line the
broiler pan and broiler grid. However,
you must mold the foil tightly to the grid
and cut slits in it just like the grid.
Cut slits in the foil just like the grid.
14
Without the slits, the foil will prevent fat
and meat juices from draining into the
broiler pan. The juices could become
hot enough to catch on fire. If you
do not cut the slits, you are essentially
frying, not broiling.
Do not use aluminum foil on the bottom of
the oven.
Never entirely cover a shelf with
aluminum foil. This will disturb the heat
circulation and result in poor baking.
A smaller sheet of foil may be used to
catch a spillover by placing it on a lower
shelf several inches below the food.
How to Set the Oven for Broiling
Place the meat or fish on the broiler
grid in the broiler pan.
Press the BROIL HI/LO pad once for
HI Broil.
Follow suggested shelf positions in
the Broiling Guide.
To change to LO Broil, press the
BROIL HI/LO pad again.
Leave the door open to the broil
stop position. The door stays open
by itself, yet the proper temperature
is maintained in the oven.
Use LO Broil to cook foods such as
poultry or thick cuts of meat thoroughly
without over-browning them.
Press the START pad.
When broiling is finished, press the
CLEAR/OFF pad.

Most recipes for baking have been developed using high fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you
decrease the fat, the recipe may not give the same results as with a higher fat product.
Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries, cookies or candies are made with low fat spreads. The lower the fat
content of a spread product, the more noticeable these differences become.
Federal standards require products labeled “margarine” to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low fat spreads,
on the other hand, contain less fat and more water. The high moisture content of these spreads affects the
texture and flavor of baked goods. For best results with your old favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or
stick spreads containing at least 70% vegetable oil.

Heavy, Burned-On Residue
Allow the cooktop to cool.
For additional protection,
after all residue has been
removed, polish the entire
surface with CERAMA BRYTE®
Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner
and a paper towel.
After scraping with the razor
scraper, spread a few drops of
CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic
Cooktop Cleaner on the entire
burned residue area. Use the
CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Pad to
remove any remaining residue.
Consumer Support
The CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic
Cooktop Scraper is available
through our Parts Center. See
instructions under “To Order Parts”
section on next page.
NOTE: Do not use a dull or
nicked blade.
Use a single-edge razor blade
scraper at approximately a 45°
angle against the glass surface
and scrape the soil. It will be
necessary to apply pressure to
the razor scraper in order to
remove the residue.
Care and Cleaning
WARNING: DAMAGE to your glass surface
may occur if you use scrub pads other than the
pad included with your range.
Operating Instructions
Clean your cooktop after
each spill. Use CERAMA
BRYTE® Ceramic Cooktop
Cleaner.
Before using the cooktop for the
first time, clean it with CERAMA
BRYTE® Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner.
This helps protect the top and
makes clean-up easier.
Shake the cleaning cream well.
Apply a few drops of CERAMA
BRYTE® Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner
directly to the cooktop.

Metal Marks and Scratches
Be careful not to slide pots and
pans across your cooktop. It will
leave metal markings on the
cooktop surface.
These marks are removable using
the CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic
Cooktop Cleaner with the
CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Pad
for Ceramic Cooktops.
If pots with a thin overlay of
aluminum or copper are allowed
to boil dry, the overlay may leave
black discoloration on the
cooktop.
This should be removed
immediately before heating
again or the discoloration may
be permanent.
WARNING: Carefully check the bottom of
pans for roughness that would scratch
the cooktop.
Cooktop Seal
To clean the cooktop seal around the
edges of the glass, lay a wet cloth on it
for a few minutes, then wipe clean
with nonabrasive cleaners.
Glass surface – potential for permanent damage.
Our testing shows that if
you are cooking high sugar
mixtures such as jelly or
fudge and have a spillover,
it can cause permanent
damage to the glass surface
unless the spillover is
immediately removed.
Damage from Sugary Spills and Melted Plastic
Turn off all surface units. Remove
hot pans.
Wearing an oven mitt:
a. Use a single-edge razor blade
scraper (CERAMA BRYTE®
Ceramic Cooktop Scraper) to
move the spill to a cool area on
the cooktop.
b. Remove the spill with
paper towels.
