Before Setting Surface Controls
Using proper cookware
Cookware Material Types
The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly heat
is transferred from the surface element to the pan bottom. The
most popular materials available are:
The size and type of cookware
used will influence the radiant element power level setting needed
for best cooking results. Be sure to
follow the recommendations for
using proper cookware as illustrated in both Figure 1 and
Figure 2.
Aluminum - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food will
cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware resists staining
and pitting).
Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily (See
Aluminum).
Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is
durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
Figure 1: Testing cookware
Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor however will retain heat very
well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached.
Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the
cookware (See Figure 1). Cookware should have flat bottoms
that make good contact with the entire surface heating element
(See Figure 2).
Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating characteristics will vary
depending on base material.
Glass - Slow heat conductor.
About the surface elements
The element temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the
temperature rises, the element will glow red. For efficient
cooking, turn OFF the surface element just before cooking is
complete. This will allow residual heat to complete the cooking
process.
• Flat bottom and straight
sides.
• Tight fitting lids.
• Weight of handle does
not tilt pan. Pan is well
balanced.
• Pan sizes match the
amount of food to be
prepared and the size
of the surface element.
• Made of material that
conducts heat well.
• Easy to clean.
• Always match pot
diameter to element
size.
Surface elements may appear to have cooled
after they have been turned off. The surface element may still
be hot and burns may occur if the surface element is touched
before it has cooled sufficiently.
• Curved and warped pans.
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.
• Cookware larger than
cooking area marked on
cooktop by more than
one-half inch or 12mm.
Do not use aluminum foil to line surface unit
drip bowls, or reflector pans. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may
result in risk of electric shock, or fire.
• Heavy handle tilts pan.
Do not place aluminum foil or any material that could melt on
the surface elements.
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.
• Pan is smaller than the
heating area marked on
cooktop.
Figure 2: Proper cookware placement

Before Setting Surface Controls
Home Canning
Element On indicator lights
Canning can generate large amounts of steam.
Use extreme caution to prevent burns. Always raise the lid to
vent steam away from you. Safe canning requires that harmful
micro-organisms are destroyed and the jars are sealed
completely. When canning in a water bath canner, a gentle but
steady boil must be maintained continuously for the required
time.
The ELEMENT ON indicator lights are marked on the control
panel and will glow when a surface cooking element is turned
on. A quick glance at these indicator lights after cooking is an
easy check to be sure all surface controls are turned off.
Important note:
Never place or straddle a cooking utensil over two different
surface cooking elements at the same time unless the utensil is
designed for that purpose. This can cause uneven heating
results. This can also cause the ceramic cooktop to fracture (for
ceramic cooktop models only).
Be sure to read and observe all the following points when home
canning with your appliance. Check with the USDA (United
States Department of Agriculture) Web site and be sure to read
all the information they have available as well as follow their
recommendations for home canning procedures.
•
Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning.
Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom.
•
Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no ridges
that radiate from the bottom center when home canning.
Heat is spread more evenly when the bottom surface is flat.
•
Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed 1
inch beyond the surface element markings or burner. It is
recommended to use smaller diameter canners on electric
coil and ceramic glass cooktops and to center canners on
the burner grates.
•
Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more quickly.
•
Use the highest heat seating when first bringing the water to
a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest
possible setting to maintain that boil.
•
Use tested recipes and follow instructions carefully. Check
with your local Cooperative Agricultural Extension Service
or a manufacturer of glass jars for the latest canning information.
•
It is best to can small amounts and light loads.
•
Do not leave water bath or pressure canners on high heat
for an extended amount of time.
•
Alternate surface units between each batch to allow the
units and surrounding surfaces to cool down. Try to avoid
canning on the same burner unit all day.

Important notes:
Radiant surface elements may appear to have
cooled after they have been turned off. The
surface may still be hot and burns may occur if the surface is
touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
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.
Do not allow aluminum foil, empty glassporcelain cookware or ANY material that can melt to make
contact with the cooktop. If these items melt on the cooktop
they may damage the cooktop coils.

•
For efficient cooking, turn off the element several minutes
before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to
complete the cooking process.
•
The surface control knobs do not have to be set exactly on
a particular spot. Use the graphics provided as a guide and
adjust the control knob as needed. Each surface element
provides a constant amount of heat at each setting.
•
Refer to the suggested radiant surface element settings for
suggested power level settings (Table 1). 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.
Before setting oven controls
Oven vent location
Type of oven racks
The oven vent is located under the left side of the control panel
(Figure 5). When the oven is on, warm air passes through this
vent. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the
oven and good baking results. Do not block oven vent:

flat oven rack
bottom oven
rack
offset
oven rack
Figure 5: Oven vent location
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when
using the oven. When cooking, the oven interior and exterior,
oven racks and cooktop will become very hot which can cause
burns.
Figure 6: Variety of oven racks
The flat oven rack (some models) or flat handle oven rack (some
models) may be used for most cooking needs.
Protective Liners — Do not use aluminum foil to
line the oven bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended
in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in
risk of electric shock, or fire
The offset oven rack (on some models) is designed to place the
base of the rack about 1/2 of a rack position lower than flat
oven racks. This design allows several additional positions
between the flat rack positions.
Air circulation in the oven
To maximize oven cooking space place the bottom oven rack
(on some models) in the lowest rack position for roasting large
cuts of meat.
For best 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. Hot air must be able to circulate around the
cookware in the oven for even heat to reach around the food.

Setting Bake
Baking tips
Use the bake function whenever the recipe calls for baking
using normal temperatures. A reminder tone will sound when the
set bake temperature is reached. Bake may be programmed
for any temperature from 170°F to 550°F (77°C to 288°C).
The factory preset bake temperature is 350°F (177°C).
•
Fully preheat the oven before cooking items like cookies,
biscuits and breads.
•
When using any single rack, position the rack so that the
food is in the center of the oven.
•
For best results when baking cakes using two oven racks,
place racks in positions 3 and 6. (Fig. 8, on page 14)
•
Dark or dull bakeware absorbs more heat than shiny
bakeware. It may be necessary to reduce oven temperature
and cook time to prevent overbrowning of some foods. Dark
bakeware is recommended for pies. Shiny bakeware is
recommended for cakes, cookies, and muffins.
•
For best results when baking cakes or cookies using 2 oven
racks, place cookware in rack positions 3 & 6 and pans as
shown in Fig. 7, on page 14
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using
the oven. When cooking the oven interior, oven racks and cooktop will become very hot which can cause burns.

Warm & Hold™
Adjusting oven temperature
Warm & Hold will keep cooked foods warm and ready for
serving for up to 3 hours after cooking has finished. After 3
hours the Warm & Hold will shut off automatically. Warm &
Hold should only be used with foods that are already at serving
temperatures. Warm & Hold will maintain the oven temperature
at 170° F (77°C).
Your appliance has been factory calibrated and tested to
ensure an accurate baking temperature. For the first few uses,
follow your recipe times and temperature recommendations
carefully. If you think the oven is cooking too hot or too cool for
your recipe times, you may adjust the UPO (user programmable
offset) so the oven cooks hotter or cooler than the oven temperature displayed.

Self Clean
•
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 afterwards with a damp cloth.
The Self Clean function allows you to select 3 different cleaning
times from 2, 3 or 4 hours. A 3-hour cleaning time is best used
for normal cleaning; 2-hour time for light soils and a 4-hour
clean time for heavier stubborn soils.
Remove any excessive spills. Any spills on the oven bottom
should be wiped up and removed before starting a self
clean cycle. To clean use hot, soapy water and a cloth.
Large spills can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected
to high temperatures. Do not allow food spills with high
sugar or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut,
fruit juices or pie fillings) to remain on the surface as they
may leave a dull spot even after cleaning.
Read before starting Self Clean
Be sure to read all following caution and important statements before starting a self clean cycle
Do not leave small children unattended near
appliance. During self clean cycle the outside of the oven can
become very hot and cause burns if touched.
Do not line the oven walls, racks, oven bottom or
any part of the range with aluminum foil. This will cause permanent damage to the oven interior and destroy heat distribution,
and will met to the oven interior.
Do not force the oven door open. This will
damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution when
opening the oven door after the self clean cycle ends. The oven
may still be very hot and cause burns. To avoid possible burns
stand to side of oven when opening door to allow steam or hot
air to escape.

Areas to clean and to avoid
Do not clean the oven door gasket (figure). The woven
material in the gasket is essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage or remove the oven
door gasket. Doing so could cause damage to the door
gasket and compromise the performance of the oven.
Important notes:
Completely remove all oven racks and any accessories
from oven cavity to avoid damage to oven racks. If the
oven racks are not removed they may discolor. Remove all
items from the oven and cooktop including cookware,
utensils and any aluminum foil. Aluminum foil will not
withstand high temperatures from a self clean cycle and
will melt.
Do not use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or
around any part of the oven interior. 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
(Fig. 12, on page 18). These areas heat sufficiently to burn
soil on. Clean using soap and water prior to starting Self
Clean.

•
The kitchen area should be well ventilated using an open
window, ventilation fan or exhaust hood during the 1st self
clean cycle. This will help eliminate the normal odors
associated with the 1st self clean cycle.

Do not attempt to open the oven door when the OVEN
LOCK indicator light is flashing. Allow about 15 seconds for
the motorized door latch mechanism to completely lock or
unlock the oven door.
