using the appliance. Do not let clothing or
other flammable materials contact hot surfaces.
Never use your appliance for
warming or heating the room.
•Do Not Use Water or Flour on Grease
Fires—Smother the fire with a pan lid, or use
baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
•When heating fat or grease, watch it closely.
Fat or grease may catch fire if allowed to
become too hot.
•Use Only Dry Potholders—Moist or damp
potholders on hot surfaces may result in
burns from steam. Do not let the potholders
touch hot heating surface units or interior oven
elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky
cloth instead of a potholder.
•Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers—
Build up of pressure may cause the container
to burst and result in injury.
•Remove the oven door from any unused
appliance if it is to be stored or discarded.
•IMPORTANT—Do not attempt to operate the
oven during a power failure. If the power
fails, always turn the oven off. If the oven
is not turned off and the power resumes, the
oven may begin to operate again. Food left
unattended could catch fire or spoil.
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.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR COOKTOP
•Know which knob controls each surface
heating unit.
•Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped
with one or more surface units of different sizes.
Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough
to cover the surface unit. The use of undersized
utensils will expose a portion of the surface
heating unit to direct contact and may result in
ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil
to the surface unit will also improve efficiency.
•Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and
Should Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface
Units—To reduce the risk of burns, ignition
of flammable materials, and spillage due
to unintentional contact with the utensil. The
handle of the utensil should be positioned so
that it is turned inward, and does not extend
over adjacent surface unit.
•Never Leave Surface Units Unattended—
Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry
may melt.
•Protective liners— Do not use aluminum
foil to line oven bottom or any other part
of the appliance. Only use aluminum foil
as recommended for baking if used as a
cover placed on the food. Any other used of
protective liners or aluminum foil may result in
a risk of electric shock or fire or a short circuit.
•Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types
of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware,
or other glazed utensils are suitable for
rangetop service without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer’s recommendations for rangetop
use.
•Do Not Use Decorative Surface Element
Covers. If an element is accidentally turned
on, the decorative cover will become hot and
possibly melt. Burns will occur if the hot covers
are touched. Damage may also be done to the
cooktop.
4
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
•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.
•Do not touch a hot light bulb with a damp
cloth. Doing so could cause the bulb to break.
Disconnect the appliance or turn off the
power to the appliance before removing and
replacing light bulb.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR
CLEANING YOUR RANGE
•Clean the range regularly to keep all parts
free of grease that could catch fire. Exhaust
fan ventilation hoods and grease filters
should be kept clean. Do not allow grease to
accumulate. Greasy deposits in the fan could
catch fire. Refer to the hood manufacturer’s
instructions for cleaning.
•Cleaners/aerosols—Always follow the
manufacturer’s recommended directions for
use. Be aware that excess residue from cleaners
and aerosols may ignite causing damage and/
or injury.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR OVEN
•Use Care When Opening Door or Warmer
Drawer (if equipped)—Stand to the side of
the appliance when opening the door of a hot
oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you
remove or replace food in the oven/warmer
drawer.
•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 heat-sensitive items on
or near the oven vent. These items could melt
or ignite.
•Placement of Oven/Warmer Drawer (if
equipped) Racks. Always place oven racks
in desired location while oven/drawer (if
equipped) is cool. Remove all utensils from the
rack before removing rack. If rack must be
moved while oven is hot, use extreme caution.
Use potholders and grasp the rack with both
hands to reposition. Do not let potholders
contact the hot oven element or interior of the
oven/warmer drawer (if equipped).
•Do not use your broiler pan without its insert.
Your broiler pan and grid allow dripping fat to
drain and be kept away from the high heat of
the broiler.
•Do not cover the broiler or warmer drawer (if
equipped) grid with aluminum foil. Exposed
fat and grease could ignite.
SELF-CLEANING OVENS
•Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts
of the oven listed in this owner’s guide. Before
self-cleaning the oven, remove all utensils stored
in the oven.
•Do not clean the oven door gasket. The door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should
be taken not to rub, damage or move the
gasket.
•Oven racks. Oven racks color will change if
left in the oven during a self-cleaning cycle.
•Do not use oven cleaners. No oven cleaner or
oven liner protective coating of any kind should
be used in or around any part of the oven.
•Remove oven racks. Oven racks color will
change if left in the oven during a self-cleaning
cycle.
The health of some birds is
extremely sensitive to the fumes given off
during the self-clean cycle of any range. Move
birds to another well ventilated room.

About the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements
located below the surface of the glass. The design of the
ceramic cooktop outlines the area of the surface element
underneath. Make sure the diameter of the pan matches the
diameter of the element outline on the cooktop.
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.
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.
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.
Locations of the Radiant Surface Elements and
Controls
Your range is equipped with radiant surface elements with
different wattage ratings. The ability to heat food quicker
and in larger volumes increases as the element wattage
increases.
The radiant surface elements are located on the cooktop as
follows:
-Two 6" radiant elements at the right and left rear positions;
-One dual 6" or 9" radiant element at the left front
positions;
-One dual 9” or 12” radiant element at the right front
positions;
-One warmer zone element at the center rear position.
NOTE: Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the
element to cycle on and off, even at the HI setting. This
helps to prevent damage to the ceramic smooth top.
Cycling at the HI setting is normal and can occur if the
cookware is too small for the radiant element or if the
cookware bottom is not flat (Refer to Selecting Surface
Cooking Cookware section).
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).

Setting Surface Controls
Surface Cooking Settings
To Operate the Single 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 2).
3. When cooking has completed, turn the surface control
knob to OFF before removing the cookware. Note:
The Hot Surface Indicator light will come on when the
control knob will be turn on and will continue to glow
until the glass cooktop has cooled down to a moderate
level. The light may remain on even though the controls
are turned OFF.
Note: See table, for recommended control settings.
Use the chart below to determine the correct setting for the
kind of food you are preparing. The Simmer settings are
used to simmer and keep larger quantities of foods warm
such as stews and soups. The lower Simmer settings are ideal
for delicate foods and melting chocolate or butter.
Note: The size and type of cookware used will influence the
setting needed for best cooking results.

as shown on figure 1.
Figure 2
Important notes:
• Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then
turn to a lower setting to finish cooking.
• For efficient cooking, turn the surface element OFF several
minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow residual
heat to complete the cooking process.
• 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.
Figure 1
Radiant surface elements may appear to
have cooled after they have been turned off. A hot surface
indicator light will come 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.
• Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the radiant
heating element to cycle ON and OFF, even at the Hi
setting. This helps prevent damage to the ceramic cooktop.
Cycling at the HI setting is normal and will occur more often
if the cookware is too small for the radiant element or if the
cookware is not flat.
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. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could catch fire
if placed too close to the surface elements.

of the range 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.
• 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.
To Operate the Dual Surface Element:
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the dual surface
element.
2. Push in and turn the control knob counterclockwise (See
Figure 2) for smaller cookware or clockwise (See Figure
3) for larger cookware.
3. 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 for the surface heating area.
4. When cooking has completed, turn the surface control
knob to OFF before removing the cookware. Note: The
Surface Indicator light will come on when the control
knob will be turn on and will continue to glow until the
glass cooktop has cooled down to a moderate level. The
light may remain on even though the controls are turned
OFF.
Note: See page 8, for recommended control settings.
• Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the radiant
heating element to cycle ON and OFF, even at the Hi
setting. This helps prevent damage to the ceramic cooktop.

Figure 1
The purpose of the Warmer Zone is to keep hot cooked foods
at serving temperature. Use the Warmer Zone to keep cooked
foods hot such as: vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews,
breads, pastries and oven-safe dinner plates. Always start
with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food on
the Warmer Zone.
All food placed on the warmer zone should be covered with a
lid to maintain quality. For best results, when warming pastries
or breads, the cover should have an opening to allow moisture
to escape. Do not use plastic wrap or aluminum foil to cover
food. Plastic or aluminum may melt onto the surface.
Use only plates, utensils and cookware recommended for oven
and cooktop use on the Warmer Zone.
Warmer Zone Temperature Selection
Refer to the Warmer Zone table for recommended heating
levels (Figure 1). If a particular food is not listed, start with the
medium level, and adjust as needed. Most foods can be kept
at serving temperatures by using the medium level.
To Set the Warmer Zone Control:
NOTE: The controls and indicator light are located on the
control panel.
1. Touch the ON/OFF pad at the Warmer Zone control position.
The Warmer Zone indicator light will flash. Note: If no further
pads are touched within 25 seconds the request to power the
Warmer Zone ON will clear.
2. At the Warmer Zone controls position touch Hi once to turn
ON the power level for HI (see Figure 2) or Lo to turn ON
the power level for LO (see Figure 5). The Warmer Zone
Indicator light located at the right of the ON/OFF pad
will turn on steady and the Hot Surface indicator light will
turn ON when the Warmer Zone becomes hot.
3. Each touch Hi or Lo will increase or decrease the power
levels. The Warmer Zone has 5 power levels from Hi (see
Figure 2) through Med (see Figure 4) to Lo (see Figure 5).
The power level may be adjusted at any time while the
Warmer Zone is ON.
4. When it is time to serve the food, touch the ON/OFF pad
once to turn the Warmer Zone OFF. The Warmer Zone
indicator light will turn OFF (see Figure 3).
Note: The Hot Surface indicator light will remain ON if the
cooktop is still hot and will remain ON until the heating surface
area has cooled sufficiently.
The Warmer Zone will not glow red when it is
hot, but becomes hot enough to cause burns. Avoid placing
hands on or near the Warmer Zone until the Warmer Zone Hot
Surface indicator light is OFF. Always use potholders or oven
mitts when removing food from the warmer zone as cookware
and plates will be hot.

Surface Cooking
Cookware Material types
Selecting Surface Cooking Cookware
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:
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). Be sure to follow the recommendations for using
cookware as shown in 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.
Note: The size and type of cookware used will influence the
setting needed for best cooking results.
COPPER - Excellent heat conductor but discolours easily. May
leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see Aluminum above).
STAINLESS STEEL - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking
results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
CAST IRON - A poor heat conductor however will retain heat
very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached.
Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.
PORCELAIN-ENAMEL on METAL - Heating characteristics will
vary depending on base material. Porcelain-enamel coating
must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktops.
GLASS - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic
cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass.

Before Setting Oven Controls
This range has a fan that will turn “ON” and “OFF” by itself to keep the electronics cool. It may continue
to run after the range has been turned “OFF”, but may also stop immediately and then turn “ON” after a while.
Oven Vent Location
The oven vent is located at right side of the front panel
and visible when the oven door is open. When the oven
is on, hot air is released through the vents. This venting is
necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good
baking results.
Removing and Replacing Oven Racks
To remove, pull the rack forward until it stops. Lift up front
of rack and slide out. To replace, fit the rack onto the
guides on the oven walls. Tilt the front of the rack upward
and slide the rack back into place.
Arranging Oven Racks
Always arrange oven racks when the oven is cool (Prior to operating the oven). Always use oven mitts
when the oven is hot.

Setting Oven Controls
Setting Convection Bake
Convection baking uses a fan to circulate the oven’s heat
evenly and continuously within the oven. This improved heat
distribution allows for even cooking and browning results.
Multiple racks cooking may slightly increase cook times for
some foods, but the overall result is time saved.
The following temperature settings apply to the conv bake
feature:
• Auto-suggest (default setting): 350°F / 177°C.
• Min. bake setting: 170°F / 77°C.
• Max. bake setting: 550°F / 288°C.
The Conv Bake feature should ONLY be used when your
recipe instructions have been written for use with convection
baking.
To set the Convection Bake
If your recipe instructions are for normal baking and
you wish to use convection bake, follow the Convection
Convert option instructions. The convection convert option
will automatically adjust the oven temperature so that
convection baking may provide the best possible result.

Setting Convection Roast
This method of cooking enables you to obtain the best
results when roasting. Remember to use tested recipes
with times adjusted for convection roasting when using the
convection mode. This oven is equipped with multiple fan
speeds for even cooking when baking and better tasting
meats when roasting. It will use a faster fan speed for
roasting which will quickly strip the cold air away from the
meats replacing it with warm air (making a crisp outside type of searing) sealing in juices for better tasting meats.
Conv Bake may be set with the following option:
• Cook Time and / or Delay Start
The following temperature settings apply to the conv bake
feature:
• Auto-suggest (default setting): 350°F / 177°C.

Preheating is not necessary for most meats and poultry.
Be sure to carefully follow your recipe's temperature and
time recommendations.
Do not cover foods when dry roasting - this will prevent
the meat from browning properly.
Since Conv Roast cooks food faster, reduce the cook
time by 25% from the recommended cook time of
your recipe (check the food at this time). If necessary,
increase cook time until the desired doneness is
obtained.

The Conv 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 Conv Bake,
Timed Conv Bake or a Delay Start (Delayed Timed Conv
Bake) setting. When used with a Timed Bake or a Delay
Start (Delayed Timed Bake) setting, the Convection Convert
will display a “CF” for check food when the bake time is
75% 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 will sound 3 long beeps every 30 seconds
until the Stop pad is pressed.
To change from a normal bake recipe to a convection
bake recipe (example: changing a 400°F normal
bake recipe to a convection bake recipe)

The broiler pan and the insert allows grease to drain and
be kept away from the high heat of the broiler. DO NOT
use the pan without the insert. DO NOT cover the insert
with foil; the exposed grease could ignite.
Broiler Clean-Up Tips (some models):
• To make cleaning easier, line the bottom of the broiler
pan with aluminum foil. DO NOT cover the broiler grid
with foil.
• To prevent grease from baking on, remove the broiler
pan from the oven as soon as cooking is completed.
Use hot pads because the
Insert
broiler pan is extremely hot.
Pour off grease. Soak the
pan in HOT, soapy water.
• Clean the broiler pan as soon
as possible after each use. If
necessary, use soap-filled steel
wool pads. Heavy scouring

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.
To adjust the oven temperature higher
See below example to increase the oven temperature by
30°F
1. Press Bake for 6 seconds.
2. Press 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 Stop to reject
the change if necessary.
To adjust the oven temperature lower
See below example to decrease the oven temperature by
30°F
1. Press Bake for 6 seconds.
2. Press 3 0 and then press 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 Stop 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.

Self-Cleaning Cycle
Before Starting Self-Clean
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures
that are well above those used for normal cooking. The high
cleaning temperature eliminates soils completely or reduces
them to a fine powdered ash that you can later easily wipe
away with a damp cloth.
Adhere to the following precautions when running the selfclean cycle:
• Allow the oven to cool before cleaning.
• Wear rubber gloves when cleaning any exterior parts of
the oven manually.
• Do not use commercial oven cleaners or oven protective
coatings in or around 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.
-Fig. 1• Do not use any cleaning materials on the door gasket.
Leaving chemical residue can damage the door gasket.
• Do not force the oven door open. The automatic door
locking system can be damaged.
• Remove all utensils and any aluminum foil from the
oven. These items cannot withstand high cleaning
temperatures.
• Oven racks may be left in the oven or may be removed.
If they go through the clean cycle, their color will turn
slightly dull. After the cycle is completed and the oven
has cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or
a cloth containing a small amount of baby oil or salad
oil. This will make the racks glide easier.
• Remove any excessive spillovers in the oven cavity
before starting a self-clean cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy
water and a cloth. Large spillovers can cause heavy
smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures.
• 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 with soap and water. These
areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on.
• 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 porcelain surface, they may leave
a dull spot even after cleaning.
During the self-clean cycle, the outside of the appliance can
become very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave small children
unattended near the appliance.
• DO NOT line the oven walls, oven racks, bottom or any
other part of the appliance with aluminum foil. Doing so
will stop 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-clean cycle is finished. The oven
may still be VERY HOT.
• Before cleaning any part of the oven, be sure the
electronic oven control is turned off or else push
CANCEL pad. Wait until the oven is cool.
• The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
appliance. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.

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.
24
Self-Cleaning Cycle
Self-Clean Time Length
* For satisfactory results, use a 2 hour Self-Clean cycle for
light soils and a 3 hour cycle for average or a 4 hour cycle
for heavy soils.
If you are planning to use the oven directly after a self-clean
cycle remember to allow time for the oven to cool down and
the oven door to unlock. This normally takes about one hour.
So a 3 hour self-clean cycle will actually take about 4 hours
to complete.
NOTE: The kitchen area should be well ventilated using an
open window, ventilation fan or exhaust hood during the
Self-Clean cycle. This will help eliminate the normal odors
associated with the Self-Clean cycle.
To Set a Self-Clean Cycle or a Delayed Start SelfClean Cycle
See example below to start an immediate 4 hours SelfCleaning cycle or to set a Delay Start time of 9:00 o'clock
and shut-off automatically.
1. Be sure the clock is set with the correct time of day, the
oven is EMPTY and the door is closed.
2. Press Clean.
3. Press 4, 0, 0.
Note: If a 2 or 4 hour clean time is desired, press 2, 0,
0 for a 2 hour or press 4, 0, 0 for a 4 hour clean time.
Set the cleaning time based on the amount of soil: light,
average or heavy (*see above).
4. Press Start.
As soon as the control is set, the motor driven oven door
lock will begin to close automatically. Once the door
has been locked the "Door Locked" indicator light will
stop flashing and remain on.
Note: Allow about 15 seconds for the oven door lock to
close.
Note: If the optional delay Self-Clean feature is needed,
finish steps 5-7.
5. Press Delay Start.
6. Enter the desired Self-Clean starting time using the
number pads 9, 0, 0.
7. Press Start.
The control will calculate forward from the set start time
to determine when the Self-Cleaning cycle should end.
The Self-Cleaning cycle will turn on automatically at the
set time.
• 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.
• DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage
the automatic door locking system. Use caution when
opening the door after the self-clean cycle is finished.
The oven may still be VERY HOT.
When the Self-Clean Cycle is Completed:
1. The “DOOR LOCKED”, “CLEAN” and “HOT” icons will
remain in the display.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and
the “DOOR LOCKED” icon is no longer displayed, the
oven door can then be opened.
NOTE: When the oven is cool, wipe away any residue or
powdered ash with a damp cloth or paper towel.
Stopping or Interrupting a Self-Cleaning Cycle
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a Self-Cleaning
cycle:
1. Press Stop.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and
the “DOOR LOCKED” light has gone out, the oven door
can be opened.
3. Restart the Self-Clean cycle once all conditions have
been corrected.
Important notes:
- Starting a Self-Clean cycle will turn ON the Cooktop Lockout
feature. The cooktop will remain locked until the Self-Clean
cycle has completed and the oven door has unlocked.
- When a Self-Clean cycle is turn on, the oven light will be disable
and if the oven light is On, it will turn OFF automatically.

Care & Cleaning (Cleaning Chart)
Cleaning Various Parts of Your Range
Before cleaning any part of the range, be sure all controls are turned OFF and the range is COOL. Remove spillovers
and heavy soiling as soon as possible. Regular cleaning will reduce the number of major
cleaning later.
Surfaces
How to Clean
Aluminum & Vinyl
Painted and Plastic Control
Knobs, Body Parts, and
Decorative Trim
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.
Using a soft cloth, clean with mild dish detergent and water or a 50/50 solution of vinegar
and water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry and polish with a soft cloth.
Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth first. DO NOT spray liquids directly
on the control pad and display area. Do not use large amounts of water on the control
panel - excess water on the control area may cause damage to the appliance. Do not use
other liquid cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or some paper towels - they will
damage the finish. To remove control knobs, turn to the OFF position; grasp firmly and
pull straight off the shaft. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the
knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.
Clean stainless steel with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and a
cloth. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorines. Do not use
harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for cleaning
stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners from the surface as bluish stains may
occur during heating that cannot be removed.
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1
solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with an ammoniasoaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp cloth, and
then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove
all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use
spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
Oven racks should be removed, or else their finish will dull and their colors turn slightly
blue. If they do go through the self-clean cycle, wait until the oven has cooled, then remove
the oven racks and rub their sides with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount
of baby or salad oil; this will make the oven racks glide easier back in and out of their
positions.
To clean oven door, wash with hot, soapy water and a clean cloth. DO NOT immerse the
door in water.

Care & Cleaning
Cooktop Maintenance
Cooktop Cleaning
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining
your ceramic glass cooktop
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the
controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the
recommended CookTop® Cleaning Creme to the ceramic
surface. Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or no-scratch
cleaning 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.
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.
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:
•Use cookware with dirt or dirt build up on bottom; replace
with clean cookware before using.
•Slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop.
•Use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the
kitchen.
•Cook foods directly on the cooktop surface without a pan.
•Drop heavy or hard objects on the glass cooktop, because
they may cause it to crack.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to
the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a non-abrasive plastic
type no-scratch cleaning 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 non-abrasive
plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad, applying pressure as
needed. Do not use the pad you use to clean the cooktop
for any other purpose.
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.
IMPORTANT NOTE: 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.
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.
27
Care & Cleaning
Cooktop Cleaning (cont’d)
Removing and Replacing the Oven Door
Do not use the following on the cooktop:
The oven door is heavy. Be careful when
removing and lifting the door. Do not lift the oven door by
the handle.
IMPORTANT Most oven doors contain glass that can
break. Read the following recommendations:
•Do not close the oven door until all the interior oven racks
are fully inserted and retracted to the back of the oven.
•Do not hit the glass with pots, pans, or any other object.
The oven door glass may break or even break at a later
time unexpectedly.
•Scratching, hitting, jarring or stressing the oven door glass
may weaken its structure causing an increased risk of
breakage at a later time.
•You may use a glass cleaner on the outside of the oven
door glass. Do not spray or allow water or the cleaner to
enter or drip down into the oven door vents. Spray cleaner
on cloth first and then wipe the oven door clean.
•Do not use strong oven cleaners, powders or any harsh
abrasive cleaning materials on the outside of the oven
door or glass.
•Never clean the oven door gasket. The oven door gasket
should always clean during the Self-clean cycle.
•Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such
as metal and some nylon pads. They may scratch the
cooktop, making it more difficult to clean.
•Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach,
ammonia or oven cleaners, as they may etch or discolor the
cooktop.
•Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as they
can leave soil or lint on the cooktop which can burn and
cause discoloration.
To Remove Oven Door:
Special Caution for Aluminum Use on the Ceramic
Cooktop
• Aluminum foil-Use of aluminum foil on a hot cooktop
will damage the ceramic cooktop. Do not use thin
aluminum cooking utensils or allow aluminum foil to
touch the ceramic cooktop under ANY circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils- The melting point of aluminum is
much lower than that of other metals. Care must be taken
when aluminum pots or pans are used on the cooktop. If
allowed to boil dry, not only will be utensil be destroyed,
but it may fuse to, break or mark the ceramic glass
surface, permanently damaging the cooktop surface.

Avoid Transportation Damage to your Range
If you have to move your range into/out of your residence or when moving to a new home, it is suggested that you take
the following precautions:
1. Screw in the levelling legs under the range.
2. Remove the racks and other utensils from the oven, and from the lower drawer.
3. Use adhesive tape to firmly secure the door and the drawer to the side panels. Also attach the electric power cord in
the same manner.
4. Use a two-wheeled trolley with strap and fasten the range to it. Cover the appliance with a heavy blanket to prevent
scratches and dents.
5. Avoid pulling or pushing the control panel when moving the appliance.
