Before Setting Surface Controls
Using Proper Cookware
Cookware Material Types
The size and type of cookware used will influence the radiant
element power level setting needed for best cooking results.
The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly heat
is transferred from the surface element to the pan bottom.
Be sure to follow the recommendations for using proper
cookware shown on this page.
•
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 cooktop, they may leave metal marks which will
resemble scratches. Remove these marks immediately.
•
Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily. May
leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see Aluminum).
•
Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results.
Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
•
Cast Iron - A slow 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
•
Glass - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for
ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass.
Figure 1: Check pan for flat bottom using ruler
Important note:
• 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.
Do not place empty aluminum, glass or porcelain-enamel
coated cookware on the ceramic cooktop! The melting point of
cookware made with these materials may be reached quickly
especially if left empty & they may bond to the ceramic
cooktop. If the cookware melts it will damage the cooktop! Be
sure to follow all the cookware manufacturer’s suggestions when
using any type of cookware on the ceramic cooktop.
• Curved and warped pans.
About the ceramic glass cooktop
• Cookware larger than
cooking area marked on
cooktop by more than
one-half inch or 12mm.
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. Be
sure to match the pan size with the diameter of the element
outline on the cooktop and only flat-bottomed 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.
• Heavy handle tilts pan.
About the radiant surface elements
• Pan is smaller than the
heating area marked on
cooktop.
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.
7
Before Setting Surface Controls
The HOT ELEMENT indicator will appear in the display
(Figure 5) when any surface cooking element heats up and will
remain on until the cooktop has cooled to a moderate level If
the HE message appears in the display, the control can still be
turned on again for use.
Radiant surface elements may appear to have
cooled after they have been turned off. The glass surface may
still be hot and burns may occur if the glass 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 glass-porcelain cookware or
ANY material that can melt to make contact with the ceramic
cooktop. If these items melt on the cooktop they may damage
the ceramic cooktop.
Figure 5: Hot element indicator
Sabbath Feature (Sb) Message
The cooktop display windows will show the -- message
whenever the Sabbath feature is active (Figure 6). The oven
control display will show Sab.
When activated, the Sabbath feature works for the oven only.
See “Setting the Sabbath feature (for use on the Jewish Sabbath
and Holidays)” on page 27 for complete instructions.
Cooktop Display Windows
The cooktop controls provide a digital display for each of the
radiant surface elements located on the cooktop. Power levels
and messages are easily monitored and adjusted using the
corresponding control key in combination with the window
displays.
The cooktop control will display heat levels ranging from Hi to
Lo and OFF (Figure 2). The settings between 9.5 and 3.0
(Figure 3) decrease or increase in increments of .5 (1/2). The
settings between 2.8 and 1.2 (Figure 4) are Simmer settings
which decrease or increase in increments of .2 (1/5) to Lo for
more precise settings at lower heat levels.

Before Setting Surface Controls
Cooktop Lockout (--)
Important notes:
Use the Cooktop Lockout to lock all surface elements from being
accidentally turned ON (including Warmer Zone). This feature
will only lockout the cooktop features.
•
Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the radiant
heating element to cycle on and off, even at the HI setting.
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 bottom is not flat.
•
Be sure to read the detailed instructions for ceramic glass
cooktop maintenance and cleaning in the Care & Cleaning
and Before You Call sections of this Use & Care Guide.
To turn the Cooktop Lockout feature ON:
1.
Be sure all surface element controls are OFF.
2. Press and hold Cooktop Lockout key until acceptance tone
sounds (about 3 seconds).
When the cooktop is locked, the cooktop locked indicator icon
will appear in the oven control display window (Figure 7).
Types of cooktop surface elements
The ceramic glass cooktop has radiant surface elements located
below the surface of the glass. The patterns on the ceramic glass
will outline the size and type of element available.
The single radiant element or elements will have one round
outline pattern shown on the cooktop. The warmer zone feature
(on some models), located on the center rear area of the
cooktop, uses one round outline and is designed to keep food
warm only.
Figure 7: Cooktop lockout indicator
A dual or triple (on some models) radiant element allows the
user to set the smaller inner portion as a single element or both
inner and outer portions may be set to heat together
The (--) message will appear in the cooktop display windows
whenever the Cooktop Lockout feature is active (Figure 8).
Home Canning
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) website and be sure to read
all the information they have available as well as follow their
recommendations for home canning procedures.
Figure 8: Dashes indicating that cooktop feature is locked
Tips and procedures for canning foods:
If a triple beep sounds (entry error tone) instead, check and be
sure all surface elements are turned OFF before activating the
Cooktop Lockout feature.
•
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
using a ceramic cooktop.
•
If Cooktop Lockout is active and a power failure occurs, when
power is restored the cooktop will remember the setting and
remain locked.
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. Start with hot tap water to
bring water to boil more quickly.
•
Starting a Self Clean cycle will automatically turn ON the
Cooktop Lockout feature. The cooktop will remain locked until
the self clean cycle is finished and the oven door has unlocked.
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.
•
Never place or straddle a cooking utensil over 2 different
surface cooking areas at the same time. This will cause
uneven heating results and may cause the ceramic cooktop
to fracture.
To turn the Cooktop Lockout feature OFF:
Press and hold Cooktop Lockout key until acceptance tone
sounds (about 3 seconds). The cooktop locked indicator light will
turn OFF and the cooktop may be used for normal cooking
operations.

Models with Ceramic Glass Cooktop
Locations of the Radiant Surface Elements and Controls
About the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
Your range is equipped with radiant surface burners 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: (Figure 9)
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.
•
Two smaller 7 inch radiant elements and one 6 inch element
located in the rear of the cooktop.
•
One triple 6, 9, or 12 inch radiant element located at the
right front position.
•
One 9 inch TURBO BOIL (FLEX) radiant element located at
the left front position.
Important note: (White glass cooktops only) Due to the high
intensity of heat generated by the surface elements, the glass
surface will turn light green when the element is first turned off.
This phenomenon is normal and the glass will come back to its
original white color after it has completely cooled down.
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.
Important: Please read detailed instructions for ceramic glass
cooktop cleaning in the “Care and Cleaning” section and
“Solutions to Common Problems” checklist section of this Use
and Care Guide.
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 glass cooktop. Cycling at the HI setting is normal
and can also occur if the cookware is too small for the radiant
element or if the cookware bottom is not flat.
Use “Suggested settings for various cooking needs” 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.

•
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 controls can be adjusted to provide the exact
amount of heat needed for the cooking process. Each
surface element provides a constant amount of heat at each
setting.
Figure 14: TURBO BOIL (Flex) element
•
Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then
turn to a lower setting to finish cooking.
Cooktop Lockout
•
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 smoothtop.
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 bottom is not flat.
Use the Cooktop Lockout to lock all surface elements from being
accidentally turned ON (including Warmer Zone). This feature
will only lockout the cooktop features.
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.
2. Press and hold Cooktop Lockout key until acceptance tone
sounds (about 3 seconds).
•
To turn the Cooktop Lockout feature ON:
1.
Be sure all surface element controls are OFF.
When the cooktop is locked, the cooktop locked indicator icon
will appear in the oven control display window (Figure 15 ).
Using Turbo Boil™ Flex Element
The Turbo Boil™ (Flex) feature uses a higher wattage surface
radiant element which can bring food items to boil much
quicker. (Figure 13) The left front radiant element will be clearly
marked if this feature is available on your range. If equipped
with the Turbo Boil™ Flex feature, place the cookware on the
left front surface element and follow the instructions "See
“Operating Single Radiant Surface Elements”" in this section.
Figure 15: Display showing cooktop locked
If a triple beep sounds (entry error tone) instead, check and be
sure all surface elements are turned OFF before activating the
Cooktop Lockout feature.
To turn the Cooktop Lockout feature OFF:
Press and hold Cooktop Lockout key until acceptance tone
sounds (about 3 seconds). The cooktop locked indicator light will
turn OFF and the cooktop may be used for normal cooking
operations.

Before Setting Oven Controls
Oven vent location
The Glide rack (some models) allows you to easily slide
bakeware in and out to check food or to remove or place items
while firmly holding even heavier items in place. The rack is held
in place securely and will not extend beyond the glide stop
position unless it is released manually.
The oven vent is located under the control panel (Figure 16).
When the oven is on, warm air passes through this vent. Steam
or moisture may appear near the oven vent, this is normal. This
venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and
good baking results. Do not block oven vent:
Figure 18: Releasing Glide rack lock
Figure 16: 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. Remove all racks before using the self clean function.
Figure 19: Pulling Glide rack to stop position
Protective Liners — Do not use aluminum foil to
line the oven bottom, racks, walls or any part of the oven. Only
use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual. Improper
installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or
fire.
To remove the Glide rack for cleaning or when performing a
self clean cycle.
Removing, replacing, and arranging flat or offset oven racks
2. When the lock is released, pull the rack towards you until it
stops (Figure 19).
•
To arrange - Always arrange the oven racks when the oven
is cool (prior to operating the oven).
•
To remove - Pull the oven rack straight forward until it
reaches the stop position. Lift up front of oven rack slightly
and slide out.
•
To replace - Place the oven rack on the rack guides on both
sides of oven walls, tilt upward slightly and slide the oven
rack back into place. Be sure oven racks are level.
1.
Grasp the locking bar beneath the handle as shown in
Figure 18. Pulling up on this bar unlocks the rack.
3. Grasp the Glide rack on both sides and gently lift it up to
allow the rack to move past the stop position (Figure 20)
and remove the rack. To replace, set the Glide rack into the
desired rack position by using the directions in step 3 in
reverse.

Rack
For best air circulation when baking, allow a space of 2 inches
(5 cm) around the bakeware for proper air circulation. Be sure
pans and bakeware do not touch each other, the oven door,
sides, or back of the oven cavity. Hot air must be able to
circulate around bakeware for even heat to reach the food.
Figure 17: Variety of oven racks
The flat oven rack (some models) or flat handle oven rack (some
models) may be used for most cooking needs. 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.

•
Always arrange oven racks when oven is cool. Close door
when broiling.
•
For best results when broiling, use quality broil pan along
with a broil pan insert. A broil pan is designed to drain the
fat from food, helping to reduce smoking and avoid
splatter. Do not use the pan without the insert. Do not cover
the insert with foil – the exposed grease could ignite.

Setting Conv Roast
Setting Slow Cook
The Conv Roast function combines a cook cycle with the convection fan to roast meats and poultry. Meats cooked using the
Conv Roast function will be juicier and poultry will be crisp on
the outside while staying tender and moist on the inside.
The Slow Cook feature cooks foods more slowly and at lower
oven temperatures for longer periods of time. Slow Cook is ideal
for roasting beef, pork and poultry. Slow cooking meats may
result in the exterior of meats becoming dark but will not burn
the outside as it seals in the meat’s juices.
Conv Roast may be set for any oven temperature between
170°F (77°C) to 550°F (288°C).
Two Slow Cook settings are available, high (Hi) or low (Lo). The
high setting is best for cooking foods between 4 and 5 hours.
The low setting is best for cooking foods up to 9 hours or longer.
Suggestions for Conv Roast:
•
Preheating is not necessary when roasting foods using Conv
Roast. Since Conv Roast cooks food faster, reduce the cook
time by 25% from the recommended cook time of your
recipe. If necessary, increase cooking time until the desired
doneness is obtained.
•
The broiler pan will catch grease drippings, and the grid
will help prevent splatters. The roasting rack will hold the
meat. Use the offset rack on rack position 1.
•
Do not cover foods when dry roasting as this will prevent
the meat from browning properly.
Food poisoning hazard. Do not let food sit for
more than one hour before or after cooking. Doing so can result
in food poisoning or sickness. Foods that can easily spoil such as
milk, eggs, fish, meat or poultry, should be chilled in the refrigerator first. Even when chilled, they should not stand in the oven
for more than 1 hour before cooking begins, and should be
removed promptly when finished cooking.
Some tips for best results when using Slow Cook:
To set Conv Roast with a default oven set temperature of 350°F
(177°C):
1.
Press Conv Roast.
2. Press
.
To cancel Conv Roast at any time press
•
Completely thaw all frozen foods before cooking.
•
When using a single oven rack, place in oven rack position
2 or 3. Position racks to accommodate the size of various
bakeware when cooking multiple food items.
•
Do not open the oven door often or leave the door open
when checking foods. If the oven heat escapes often, the
Slow Cook time may need to be extended.
•
Cover to keep foods moist or use a loose or vented type
cover to allow foods to turn crisp or brown.
•
Roasts may be left uncovered so browning can occur. Cook
times will vary depending on the weight, fat content, bone,
and the shape of the roast. Preheating the oven will not be
necessary when using the Slow Cook feature.
•
Add any cream or cheese sauces during the last hour of
cooking.
.
Important note:
•
The convection fan will begin rotating once Conv Bake,
Conv Roast or Conv Convert has been activated.
•
If the oven door is opened when any convection function is
active, the convection fan will stop rotating until the oven
door is closed.
•
It is not recommended to roast chicken on a roasting rack.
Use a deep pan instead and roast on rack position 1.
Important note:
•
Slow Cook may be used with additional settings of Cook
Time and Delay Start.
•
The maximum cook time for Slow Cook function is 11 hours
and 59 minutes unless the control has been changed to the
continuous bake mode.

Meat Probe
Important note:
When cooking meat such as roasts, hams or poultry, use the
meat probe function to check the internal temperature without
any guesswork. For some foods, especially poultry and roasts,
testing the internal temperature is the best method to insure
properly cooked meats.
Changing how the oven reacts after reaching the target temperature must be done before starting the cooking process.
To set meat probe:
1.
Important note:
•
Use ONLY the meat probe supplied with appliance. Using
any other probe or device may result in damage to
appliance and the meat probe receptacle.
•
Never leave or store meat probe inside oven.
•
Handle the meat probe carefully when inserting and
removing from food or probe receptacle. Do not use tongs
to pull on meat probe cable when inserting or removing
from food or receptacle.
•
Defrost food completely before inserting meat probe to
avoid damaging probe.
•
To avoid possibility of burns, after cooking carefully unplug
meat probe using a pot holder to protect hands.
Prepare the food and
properly insert the temperature probe into the food.
DO NOT preheat or start
cooking before properly
inserting the meat probe.
Probe should be inserted
into the food and receptacle while the oven is still
cool.

Self Clean
•
A self cleaning oven cleans with very high temperatures well
above normal cooking temperatures. The high temperature eliminates 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 set a cleaning time from 2
hours to 4 hours. A 3 hour cleaning time is recommended for
normal cleaning, 2 hours for light cleaning, and 4 hours for
heavy cleaning.
Remove any excessive build up caused by spills. Any spill 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 spill residue can cause heavy smoke or
fire when subjected to high temperatures. 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 surface as they may leave a dull spot even after
cleaning.
Read before starting Self Clean:
Do not leave small children unattended near
the appliance. During the self cleaning cycle, the outside of the
oven can become very hot to touch and can cause burns.
Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom or any other part of the
oven with aluminum foil. Doing so will destroy heat distribution,
produce poor baking results and cause permanent damage to
the oven interior. Aluminum foil will melt to the interior of the
oven.
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes
given off during the self cleaning cycle of any oven. Move birds
to another well-ventilated room.
Do not force the door open while self clean is
active. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use
caution when opening the oven door after self cleaning. The
oven may still be very hot and can cause burns. To avoid
possible burns stand to the side of the oven when opening the
oven door to allow hot air or steam to escape.
To set self clean:

Care and Cleaning
Cooktop Maintenance
Cooktop Cleaning
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your
ceramic glass cooktop.
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.
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended CookTop® Cleaning Creme to the ceramic surface.
Visit www.sears.com for replacement cooktop cleaner, item
number 40079. Buff with a nonabrasive 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.
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the
controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL. The glass
surface could be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is
touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
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.
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.
For heavy, burned on soil:
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough
bottoms can mark or scratch the cooktop surface.
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.
Do not:
•
Slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop.
•
Use cookware with dirt or dirt build up on bottom; replace
with clean cookware before using.
•
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 ceramic glass cooktop,
they may cause it to crack.
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 with cooktop cleaning cream and buff
surface clean.
Figure 52: Using razor blade to remove burned on matter
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.
Figure 51: Do not slide pans

Care and Cleaning
Care and Cleaning (cont)
Aluminum foil and utensils
Do not use the following on the cooktop:
NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the
oven bottom or cover an entire oven rack with materials such as
aluminum foil. Aluminum foil linings may trap heat, causing a
fire hazard.
•
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.
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.
Important note:
•
Aluminum foil - Use of aluminum foil on a hot cooktop can
damage the cooktop. Do not use thin aluminum cooking
utensils or allow aluminum foil to touch the surface elements
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
aluminum pans are allowed to boil dry when using the
cooktop, not only will the utensil be damaged or destroyed,
but it may fuse to, break or mark the ceramic glass surface,
permanently damaging the cooktop surface.
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use an
abrasive type cleaning pad. Only use cleaning products that
have been specifically designed for ceramic glass cooktops.
Replacing the oven light
Be sure the oven is unplugged and all parts are
cool before replacing oven light.
The interior oven lights are located at the rear of the oven
cavity. (See Figure 53).
To replace the oven interior light bulbs:
Important note:
Use a paper towel or cotton glove while handling the new bulb
when installing.
1.
Turn electrical power off at the main source or unplug the
appliance.
2. Replace bulb with a new 25 watt halogen bulb.
