IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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
from Edges of Cooktop 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.
• Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at a
Hi Heat Settings. 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
any part of the appliance. Only use aluminum
foil as recommended for baking if used as a
cover placed on the food. Any other use of
protective liners or aluminum foil may result in a
risk of electric shock or fire or short circuit.
• 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. Check the manufacturer’s
recommendations for cooktop use.
• Ventilating hood. The ventilating hood above
your cooking surface should be cleaned
frequently, so the grease from cooking vapors
does not accumulate on the hood or filter.
• 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
appliance.
• 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 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.
• Do Not Place Hot Cookware on Cold Cooktop
Glass. This could cause glass to break.
• Do not slide pans across the cooktop surface.
They may scratch the cooktop surface.
• Do not let pans boil dry. Pans that boil dry
may permanently damage the cooktop by
breaking, fusing to, or marking it. (This type of
damage is not covered by your warranty).

Use Proper Cookware
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
Fig. 1). Be sure to follow
the recommendations for
using cookware as shown
to the right.
• Curved and warped pan bottoms.
Fig. 1
Note: The size and type of cookware used will
influence the setting needed for best cooking
results.
• 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 pan diameter to
element surface diameter.
• Pan overhangs unit by more than
one-half inch.
• Pan is smaller than the element.
• Heavy handle tilts the pan.
Using Woks
For ceramic glass cooktop
models, use only flat bottomed
woks (without support rings).
DO NOT use a wok if it is
equipped with a metal ring that extends
beyond the surface element. Because this
ring traps heat, the surface element and
cooktop surface could be damaged.
Wire trivets: Do not use wire trivets.
Cookware bottoms must be in direct
contact with the surface cooking areas.
6
DO NOT use two
surface cooking areas, if your
appliance is not equipped with a
bridge element, to heat one large pan
such as a roaster or griddle. DO NOT
allow cooking utensils to boil dry. Either
of these situations could damage the
glass ceramic cooktop.

General Cooktop Information
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.
30" Cooktop - Location of the
Radiant Surface Elements and Controls
Fig. 1
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 energy efficient
cooking, turn off the element several minutes before cooking
is complete. This will allow residual heat to complete the
cooking process.
Locations of the Radiant Surface Elements and
Controls
36" Cooktop - Location of the
Radiant Surface Elements and Controls
Fig. 2
Your cooktop 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.
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.
The radiant surface elements are located on the 30"
cooktop as follows (See Fig. 1):
• Three small 6 inch radiant elements located at the right,
center and left rear positions.
• One Triple 12 inch radiant element located at the right
front position.
• One large 9 inch Turbo Boil Flex radiant element located
at the left front position.
NOTE: Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the
element to cycle on and off to maintain consistent heat
even at the HI setting. This helps to prevent damage to
the ceramic cooktop. Cycling is normal and will occur
even more often if the cookware is too small for the
radiant element or if the cookware bottom is not flat
(For information concerning cookware, refer to Use
Proper Cookware on page 6 of this Use and Care
Guide)
The radiant surface elements are located on the 36" cooktop
as follows (See Fig. 2):
• Two small 6 inch radiant elements located at the right
and left rear positions.
• One 7 inch radiant element located at the center rear
positions.
• One large 9 inch Turbo Boil Flex radiant element located
at the left front position.
• One Triple 12 inch radiant element located at the right
front position.
NOTE: (White glass cooktops only). Due to the high intensity
of heat generated by the surface elements, the glass
surface will turn green when the element is turned off. This
phenomenon is normal and the glass will come back to its
original white color after it has completely cooled down.

Use hot, soapy water and a cloth or paper towel. Dry with a clean cloth.
For general cleaning, use hot soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils and builtup grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on soil for 30 to 60
minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners on any of these
materials; they can scratch or dull the finish.
Clean with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and 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 off from the surface as bluish stains may occur
during heating that cannot be removed.

Ceramic Glass Cooktop Cleaning & Maintenance
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your Ceramic glass cooktop
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended CookTop® Cleaning Creme to the ceramic surface (on
the web visit www.sears.com for replacement cooktop cleaner, item number 40079). Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or noscratch 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.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the cooktop can cause metal
markings on the cooktop surface. These marks should be removed immediately after
the cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning cream. Metal marks can become
permanent if not removed prior to future use.
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough bottoms can mark or scratch
the cooktop surface. Do not slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop. Do
not use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the kitchen. Do not cook
foods directly on the cooktop surface without a pan. Do not drop heavy or hard
objects on the glass cooktop, because they may cause it to crack.

General Care & Cleaning
Cleaning Recommendations for the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and can
chemically damage the ceramic glass surface.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a non-abrasive plastic
type no-scratch pad to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue.
For heavy, burned on soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a non-abrasive
plastic type no-scratch 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. Reapply CookTop® Cleaning
Creme 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.
Do not use the following on the ceramic glass cooktop:
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as metal and
some nylon pads. They may scratch the cooktop, making it more
difficult to clean.
• Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach, ammonia or oven
cleaners, as they may etch or discolor the cooktop.
• Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as they can leave soil
or lint on the cooktop which can burn and cause discoloration.
Special Caution for Aluminum Foil and Aluminum Cooking Utensils
• Aluminum foil
Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not use under any
circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils
Since the melting point of aluminum is much lower than that of other
metals, care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans are used. Pans
that boil dry may permanently damage cooktop by breaking, fusing to,
or marking it.
Care and Cleaning of Stainless Steel (some models)
Some models are equipped with stainless steel exterior parts. Special care and cleaning are required for maintaining the
appearance of stainless parts. Refer to the General Care & Cleaning table for detailed cleaning instructions.
