IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
injury to persons, or damage when using the range, follow
basic precautions, including the following:
■ WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF
THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED BY
PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP DEVICES. TO CHECK
IF THE DEVICES ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE
RANGE FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET
SECURELY ATTACHED TO FLOOR OR WALL, AND
SLIDE RANGE BACK SO REAR RANGE FOOT IS
UNDER ANTI-TIP BRACKET.
■ CAUTION: Do not store items of interest to children in
cabinets above a range or on the backguard of a range –
children climbing on the range to reach items could be
seriously injured.
■ Proper Installation – Be sure the range is properly installed
and grounded by a qualified technician.
■ Never Use the Range for Warming or Heating the Room.
■ Do Not Leave Children Alone – Children should not be left
alone or unattended in area where the range is in use.
They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of
the range.
■ Wear Proper Apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn while using the range.
■ User Servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of the
range unless specifically recommended in the manual. All
other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
■ Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should
not be stored in an oven or near surface units.
■ Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires – Smother fire or flame
or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
■ Use Only Dry Potholders – Moist or damp potholders on
hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let
potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel
or other bulky cloth.
■ DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR
UNITS – Surface units may be hot even though they are
dark in color. Areas near surface units may become hot
enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch,
or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface
units or areas near units until they have had sufficient time
to cool. Among those areas are the cooktop and surfaces
facing the cooktop.
■ Use Proper Pan Size – The range is equipped with one or
more surface units of different size. Select utensils having
flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating
element. The use of undersized utensils will expose a
portion of the heating element to direct contact and may
result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to
burner will also improve efficiency.
■ Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat
Settings – Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite.
■ Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place –
Absence of these pans or bowls during cooking may
subject wiring or components underneath to damage.
Protective Liners – Do not use aluminum foil to line surface
unit drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as suggested in
the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result
in a risk of electric shock, or fire.
■ Glazed Cooking Utensils – Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for range-top service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature.
■ Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and 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 a
utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and
does not extend over adjacent surface units.
■ Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements – Heating
elements should never be immersed in water.
■ Do Not Cook on 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 With Caution – If a wet sponge or cloth is
used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to
avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
■ Use Care When Opening Door – Let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
■ Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers – Build-up of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.
■ Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.
■ Placement of Oven Racks – Always place oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved
while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating
element in oven.
■ DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR
SURFACES OF OVEN – Heating elements may be hot even
though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of an oven
become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use,
do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials
contact heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until
they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the
appliance may become hot enough to cause burns – among
these surfaces are oven vent openings and surfaces near
these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors.
For self-cleaning ranges –
■ Do Not Clean 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 commercial oven cleaner
or oven liner protective coating of any kind should be used
in or around any part of the oven.
■ Clean Only Parts Listed in Manual.
■ Before Self-Cleaning the Oven – Remove broiler pan and
other utensils.
For units with ventilating hood –
■ Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently – Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.
■ When flambeing foods under the hood, turn the fan on.

KEY USAGE TIPS
AquaLift® Self-Cleaning Technology
Ceramic Glass Cooktop Cleaning
To avoid damaging the cooktop, do not use steel wool, abrasive
powder cleansers, chlorine bleach, rust remover or ammonia.
1. Remove food/residue with the Cooktop Scraper.
AquaLift® Self-Cleaning Technology is a first-of-its-kind cleaning
solution designed to minimize the time, temperature and odors that
ordinarily come with traditional self-cleaning methods. With
AquaLift® Self-Cleaning Technology, an exclusive coating on the
interior of the oven is activated with heat and water to release
baked-on soil. To use AquaLift® Self-Cleaning Technology, simply
wipe out loose debris, pour water into the oven bottom and run the
AquaLift® Self-Cleaning cycle. When the cycle finishes in under
1 hour at a lower temperature than traditional self-cleaning
methods, just wipe out the remaining water and loose debris. See
the “Clean Cycle” section for more detailed instructions. For
additional information, frequently asked questions and videos on
using AquaLift® Self-Cleaning Technology, visit our website at
http://whirlpoolcorp.com/aqualift.
Surface Temperatures
■
For best results, use the Cooktop Scraper while the
cooktop is still warm, but not hot to the touch. It is
recommended to wear an oven mitt while scraping the
warm cooktop.
■
Hold the Cooktop Scraper at approximately a 45° angle
against the glass surface and scrape the residue. It will be
necessary to apply pressure in order to remove the residue.
Allow the cooktop to cool down completely before proceeding
to Step 2.
2. Apply a few dime-sized drops of affresh® Cooktop Cleaner to
the affected areas.
When the range is in use, all range surfaces may become hot, such
as the knobs and oven door.
Storage Drawer
When the oven is in use, the drawer may become hot. Do not store
plastics, cloth, or other items that could melt or burn in the drawer.
Oven Vent
The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven, and
should not be blocked or covered. Do not set plastics, paper or
other items that could melt or burn near the oven vent.
■
Rub affresh® Cooktop Cleaner onto the cooktop surface
with the blue Cooktop Cleaning Pad. Some pressure is
needed to remove stubborn stains.
■
Allow the cleaner to dry to a white haze before proceeding
to Step 3.
Preheating
When beginning a Bake, Convect Bake or Convect Roast cycle, the
oven will begin preheating after Start is pressed. The oven will take
approximately 12 to 15 minutes to reach 350°F (177°C) with all of
the oven racks provided with your oven inside the oven cavity.
Higher temperatures will take longer to preheat. The preheat cycle
rapidly increases the oven temperature. The actual oven
temperature will go above your set temperature to offset the heat
lost when your oven door is opened to insert food. This ensures that
when you place your food in the oven, the oven will begin at the
proper temperature. Insert your food when the preheat tone sounds.
Do not open the door during preheat before the tone sounds.
3. Polish with a clean, dry cloth or a clean, dry paper towel.
Repeat steps 1 through 3 as necessary for stubborn or
burned-on stains.
The Complete Cooktop Cleaner Kit is available for order including
the following:
■ Cooktop Scraper
■
■
affresh® Cooktop Cleaner
■
Blue Cooktop Cleaning Pads

COOKTOP USE
WARNING
■
For cooktops with two dual elements in the front positions, the
fastest boiling performance for pots 10" (25.4 cm) and larger
will be on the larger dual element with both elements on “Dual
Hi.” For best low heat performance on pans 10" (25.4 cm) and
larger, use the smaller dual element set at “Single Lo.”
■
For best melting performance with small pans, use the EvenHeat™ element.
■
Use flat-bottomed cookware for best heat conduction and
energy efficiency. Cookware with rounded, warped, ribbed or
dented bottoms could cause uneven heating and poor cooking
results.
■
Determine flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler
across the bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the ruler,
no space or light should be visible between it and the
cookware.
■
Cookware designed with slightly indented bottoms or small
expansion channels can be used.
■
Make sure the bottoms of pots and pans are clean and dry
before using them. Residue and water can leave deposits
when heated.
■
Avoid storing jars or cans above the cooktop. Dropping a
heavy or hard object onto the cooktop could crack the
cooktop.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not leave a hot lid on the
cooktop. As the cooktop cools, air can become trapped
between the lid and the cooktop, and the ceramic glass could
break when the lid is removed.
■
For foods containing sugar in any form, clean up all spills and
soils as soon as possible. Allow the cooktop to cool down
slightly. Then, while wearing oven mitts, remove the spills using
a scraper while the surface is still warm. If sugary spills are
allowed to cool down, they can adhere to the cooktop and can
cause pitting and permanent marks.
■
To avoid scratches, do not slide cookware or bakeware across
the cooktop. Aluminum or copper bottoms and rough finishes
on cookware or bakeware could leave scratches or marks on
the cooktop.
■
Do not cook popcorn in prepackaged aluminum containers on
the cooktop. They could leave aluminum marks that cannot be
removed completely.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not allow objects that
could melt, such as plastic or aluminum foil, to touch any part
of the entire cooktop.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not use the cooktop as a
cutting board.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not cook foods directly on
the cooktop.
Fire Hazard
Turn off all controls when done cooking.
Failure to do so can result in death or fire.
The control knobs can be set to anywhere between “H” and “L.”
Push in and turn to setting.
REMEMBER: When range is in use, the entire cooktop area
may become hot.
Ceramic Glass
The surface cooking area will glow red when an element is on.
Some parts of the surface cooking area may not glow red when an
element is on. This is normal operation. It will also randomly cycle
off and back on again, even while on High, to keep the cooktop
from extreme temperatures.
It is normal for the surface of ceramic glass to appear to change
color when surface cooking areas are hot. As the glass cools, it
will return to its original color.
Clean the cooktop after each use to help avoid scratches, pitting,
abrasions and to condition the glass surface. Ceramic glass
cooktop cleaner and a cooktop scraper are also recommended for
stubborn soils. Do not use abrasive cleaners, cleaning pads or
harsh chemicals for cleaning. The Cooktop Care Kit Part Number
31605 contains all of the items needed to clean and condition your
ceramic glass cooktop. Refer to the “Range Care” section for
additional information.
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the cooktop surface
and to make soils easier to remove, clean the cooktop after each
use to remove all soils.

Cooktop On Indicator Light
Warm Zone Element
The Cooktop On Indicator Light is located on the console panel.
When any control knob on the console panel is turned on, the
Cooktop On Indicator Light will glow.
WARNING
Food Poisoning Hazard
Hot Surface Indicator Light
Do not let food sit for more than one hour before or
after cooking.
On ceramic glass models, the Hot Surface Indicator Light is
located on the console panel.
The Hot Surface Indicator Light will glow as long as any surface
cooking area is too hot to touch, even after the surface cooking
area is turned off.
Dual-Size Cooking Element
The Dual-Size Cooking Element offers flexibility depending on the
size of the cookware. Single size can be used in the same way as
a regular element. The dual size combines both the single and
outer element and is recommended for larger size cookware.
A
Doing so can result in food poisoning or sickness.
Use the Cooktop Warm Zone element to keep cooked foods
warm. One hour is the recommended maximum time to maintain
food quality.
Do not use it to heat cold foods.
The Warm Zone element can be used alone or when any of the
other surface cooking areas are being used.
The Warm Zone element area will not glow red when cycling on.
However, the Element On indicator light will glow while the
Cooktop Warm Zone element is in use.
■ Use only cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use.
■
Cover all foods with a lid or aluminum foil. When warming
baked goods, allow a small opening in the cover for moisture
to escape.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not use plastic wrap to
cover food because the plastic wrap may melt.
■
Use pot holders or oven mitts to remove food.

To Use:
1. To turn on, press WARM ZONE ON and then START.
2. To turn off, press WARM ZONE OFF.
Cookware
IMPORTANT: Do not leave empty cookware on a hot surface
cooking area, element or surface burner.
Ideal cookware should have a flat bottom, straight sides and a wellfitting lid, and the material should be of medium-to-heavy
thickness.
Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop. Aluminum and copper
may be used as a core or base in cookware. However, when used
as a base, they can leave permanent marks on the surfaces.
Cookware material is a factor in how quickly and evenly heat is
transferred, which affects cooking results. A nonstick finish has the
same characteristics as its base material. For example, aluminum
cookware with a nonstick finish will take on the properties of
aluminum.
Cookware with nonstick surfaces should not be used under the
broiler.
Check for flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler across the
bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the ruler, no space or
light should be visible between it and the cookware.
Use flat-bottomed cookware for best cooking results and energy
efficiency. The cookware should be about the same size as the
cooking area outlined on the cooktop. Cookware should not extend
more than ½" (1.3 cm) outside the area.

or traditional coil element cooktop. When canning for long periods,
alternate the use of surface cooking areas or elements between
batches. This allows time for the most recently used areas to cool.
■ Center the canner on the largest surface cooking area or
element. On electric cooktops, canners should not extend
more than ½" (1.3 cm) beyond the surface cooking area or
element.
■
Do not place canner on 2 surface cooking areas or elements at
the same time.
■
On ceramic glass models, use only flat-bottomed canners to
avoid damage to the cooktop and elements.
■

because air must be able to move freely.
11
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the porcelain finish,
do not place food or bakeware directly on the oven door or bottom.
Multiple Rack Cooking
2-rack: Use rack positions 2 and 5 for regular baking.
2-rack (convection only): Use rack positions 2 and 5.
3-rack (true convection only): Use rack positions 2, 4 and 6.
Bakeware
Baking Cookies and Layer Cakes on 2 Racks
To cook food evenly, hot air must be able to circulate. Allow
2" (5 cm) of space around bakeware and oven walls. Make sure
that no bakeware piece is directly over another.
Baking Layer Cakes
For best results when baking cakes on 2 racks, use racks 2 and 5
with the Bake function. Place the cakes on the racks as shown.
Positioning Racks and Bakeware
Racks
■
Position racks before turning on the oven.
■
Do not position racks with bakeware on them.
■
Make sure racks are level.
To position a rack, pull it out to the stop position, raise the front
edge, and then lift out. Use the following illustration and charts as a
guide.
Baking Cookies
For best results baking 2 racks of cookies, use racks 2 and 5 with
Convect Bake.

Oven Vent
The oven has 7 positions for a flat rack, as shown in the previous
illustration and the following table.
Flat Rack Position
Type of Food
7
Broiling/searing meats, hamburgers,
steaks
6
Broiled meats, poultry, fish
3 or 4
Most baked goods, casseroles
2
Roasted meats
1
Large roasts or poultry
For hamburger patties to have a well-seared exterior and a rare
interior, use a flat rack in rack position 7. Side 1 should cook for
approximately 2¹⁄₂ to 3¹⁄₂ minutes. Side 2 should cook for
approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Expect a moderate degree of smoke
when broiling.
IMPORTANT: If your model has a Max Capacity Rack, the
recessed ends must be placed in the rack position above the
desired position of the food. See the following illustration.
The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven, and
should not be blocked or covered. Blocking or covering the oven
vent will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking and cleaning
results. Do not set plastics, paper or other items that could melt or
burn near the oven vent.
Baking and Roasting
Preheating
When beginning a Bake, Convect Bake or Convect Roast cycle, the
oven will begin preheating after Start is pressed. The oven will take
approximately 12 to 15 minutes to reach 350°F (177°C) with all of
the oven racks provided with your oven inside the oven cavity.
Higher temperatures will take longer to preheat. The preheat cycle
rapidly increases the oven temperature. The actual oven
temperature will go above your set temperature to offset the heat
lost when your oven door is opened to insert food. This ensures that
when you place your food in the oven, the oven will begin at the
proper temperature. Insert your food when the preheat tone sounds.
Do not open the door during preheat before the tone sounds.
Oven Temperature

B
A. Ends of rack in position 3
B. Food in position 2
IMPORTANT: These rack positions are for flat racks. If a Max
Capacity Rack is used, the rack position must be adjusted as
shown in the previous figure.
12
While in use, the oven elements will cycle on and off as needed to
maintain a consistent temperature, but they may run slightly hot or
cool at any point in time due to this cycling. Opening the oven door
while in use will release the hot air and cool the oven which could
impact the cooking time and performance. It is recommended to
use the oven light to monitor cooking progress.
NOTE: On models with convection, the convection fan may run in
the non-convection bake mode to improve oven performance.
Temperature Management System
The Temperature Management System electronically regulates the
oven heat levels during preheat and bake to maintain a precise
temperature range for optimal cooking results. The bake and broil
elements or burners cycle on and off in intervals. On convection
range models, the fan will run while preheating and may be cycled
on and off for short intervals during Bake to provide the best
results. This feature is automatically activated when the oven is in
use.
Before baking and roasting, position racks according to the
“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. When roasting, it is not
necessary to wait for the oven preheat cycle to end before putting
food in unless it is recommended in the recipe.
Broiling
Convection Cooking
In a convection oven, the fan-circulated hot air continually
distributes heat more evenly than the natural movement of air in a
standard thermal oven. This movement of hot air helps maintain a
consistent temperature throughout the oven, cooking foods more
evenly, crisping surfaces while sealing in moisture and yielding
crustier breads.
During convection cooking, the bake, broil and convection (true
convection only) elements cycle on and off in intervals to maintain
the oven temperature, while the fan circulates the hot air.
If the oven door is opened during convection cooking, the fan will
turn off immediately. It will come back on when the oven door is
closed.
NOTE: The oven door must be closed for convection broiling.
Leave the door open 6" (15 cm) at the broil stop position to ensure
proper broiling temperature. Preheat the oven for 5 minutes before
putting food in unless recommended otherwise in the recipe.
Position food on grid in a broiler pan, and then place it in the center
of the oven rack.
NOTE: Odors and smoke are normal the first few times the oven is
used or if the oven is heavily soiled.
Changing the temperature when broiling allows more precise
control when cooking. The lower the broil setting, the slower the
cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish
and poultry may cook better at lower broil settings. Use racks 6 or
7 for broiling. Refer to the “Positioning Racks and Bakeware”
section for more information.
On lower settings, the broil element will cycle on and off to maintain
the proper temperature.
■ For best results, use a broiler pan and grid. It is designed to
drain juices and help avoid spatter and smoke.
If you would like to purchase a broiler pan, one may be ordered.
Please refer to the “Accessories” section for more information.
Position the racks according to the “Positioning Racks and
Bakeware” section before starting convection cooking.
With convection cooking, most foods can be cooked at a lower
temperature for a shorter length of time. These adjustments can be
made using the following chart or by using the EasyConvect™
Conversion feature on your range.

RANGE CARE
Clean Cycle
6. Remove the residual water and loosened soils with a sponge or
cloth immediately after the Clean cycle is complete. Much of
the initial 2 cups (16 oz [500 mL]) of water will remain in the
oven after the cycle is completed. If additional soils remain,
leave a small amount of water in the oven bottom to assist with
the cleaning.
AquaLift® Technology is an innovative cleaning solution that utilizes
heat and water to release baked-on spills from the oven in less than
1 hour. This new cleaning technology is a low-heat, odor-free
alternative to traditional self-cleaning options.
Allow the oven to cool to room temperature before using the Clean
cycle. If your oven cavity is above 200°F (93°C), “Oven Cooling” will
appear in the display, and the Clean cycle will not be activated until
the oven cavity cools down.
To Clean:
1. Remove all racks and accessories from the oven cavity and
wipe excess soil. Use a plastic scraper to remove easilyremoved soils.
7. If any soils remain, remove them with a non-scratch scrubbing
sponge or plastic scraper. Additional Clean cycles may be run
to help remove the stubborn soils.
IMPORTANT: Do not use oven cleaners. The use of chemicals,
including commercial oven cleaners or metal scouring pads,
may cause permanent damage to the porcelain surface of the
oven interior.
NOTES:
■
The range should be level to ensure that the entire surface of
the bottom of the oven cavity is covered by water at the
beginning of the Clean cycle.
■
For best results, use distilled or filtered water. Tap water may
leave mineral deposits on the oven bottom.
■
Before removing the residual water and loosened soils at the
end of the Clean cycle, insert a cloth or paper towel between
the lower edge of the oven door and the front frame to keep
water from spilling onto the front of the range and the floor.
■
Soil baked on through several cooking cycles will be more
difficult to remove with the Clean cycle.
