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 and 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
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.
• Cookware larger than
cooking area marked on
cooktop by more than
one-half inch or 12mm.
• Heavy handle tilts pan.
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.
• Pan is smaller than the
heating area marked on
cooktop.
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 Sb message
whenever the Sabbath feature is active (Figure 6). When
activated, the Sabbath feature works for both the oven and
cooktop together. Once the Sabbath feature is active, changes
to the heat levels for the cooktop heating elements will not show
in the displays. The cooktop will react slower to heat level
changes. See Sabbath feature section 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 WARM 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 and
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 WARM 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
The (--) message will appear in the cooktop display windows
whenever the Cooktop Lockout feature is active (Figure 8).
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.
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
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.
Tips and procedures for canning foods:
•
Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning.
Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom.
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.
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 of 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 cookware over 2 different surface
cooking areas at the same time. This will cause uneven
heating results and may cause the ceramic cooktop to
fracture.

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.
•
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.
•
Do not straddle cookware between two cooking surfaces
unless the cookware was designed for that purpose, such as
griddles.
Setting Surface Controls
WARM ZONE
Unlike other radiant surface elements, the
warm zone will not glow red when it is HOT. The glass surface
may still be hot and burns can occur if the glass surface is
touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
The WARM ZONE is located at the center rear element position
on the cooktop as shown. The purpose of the warm zone is to
maintain hot cooked foods at serving temperature.
Do not place flammable items such as plastic
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.
Use the warm zone feature to keep cooked foods hot such as;
vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries
and oven-safe dinner plates.
Do not heat cold food with the warm zone. Always start with hot
food. All cookware placed on the warm zone should be covered
with a lid to maintain food quality.
Temperature selection for WARM ZONE
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.
Setting WARM ZONE:
These are warm zone recommended food settings. (Table 2) If a

Before Setting Oven Controls
Oven vent location
Types of oven racks
The oven vent is located under the left side of the control panel
(Figure 12). 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. It is normal for steam to come
from the vent or for moisture to appear around the vent during
the cooking process. Do not block oven vent:
flat handle
oven rack
flat oven rack
Figure 12: Oven vent location
offset
oven rack
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.
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
bottom oven
rack
Important note: Before starting a self clean, be sure to remove
all oven racks and accessories from the oven.
Removing, replacing, and arranging flat or offset oven
racks
•
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 the front of oven rack upward
slightly and slide the oven rack back into place. Be sure
oven racks are level before using.
Figure 13: 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. This design allows several additional positions
between the flat rack positions.
To maximize oven cooking space place the bottom oven rack
(on some models) in the lowest rack position for roasting large
cuts of meat.
Air circulation in the oven
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.

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 Cook Time.
•
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.
To set Slow Cook:
1.
Position bakeware in oven and close oven door.
2. Press Slow Cook. HI will appear in the display indicating the
default temperature setting is for high.
3. If a low setting is needed, press Slow Cook again to select
the low (LO) setting.
4. Press

Setting Warmer Drawer
Warmer Drawer Temperature Selection
To Operate the Warmer Drawer
Refer to the chart below for recommended settings. If a particular food is not listed, start with the medium setting. If more crispness is desired, remove the lid or aluminum foil.
Your range is equipped with a warm drawer. The purpose of the
warm drawer is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat
cold food in the warmer drawer.
Most foods can be kept at serving temperatures by using the
medium setting. When a combination of foods are to be kept
warm (for instance, a meat with 2 vegetables and rolls), use the
high setting. Refrain from opening the warmer drawer while in
use to eliminate loss of heat from the drawer.
All food placed in the warmer drawer should be covered with a
lid or aluminum foil to maintain quality. Do not cover crisp
foods. Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt
onto the drawer and be very difficult to clean.
To Warm Serving Bowls and Plates
Use only dish ware, utensils and cookware recommended for
oven use in the warmer drawer.
Heat bowls and plates on the LO setting. Place empty dishes on
the rack to raise them off drawer bottom. To further heat dishes
or to heat fine china, check with the manufacturer for maximum
heat tolerance.
Food poisoning hazard. Do not let food sit for
more than one hour before or after cooking. Doing so can result
in food borne illness.
IMPORTANT: The warmer drawer will turn off automatically
when the oven is in a self cleaning mode. The warmer drawer
can be used immediately after a self clean cycle is ended.
Always use potholders or oven mitts when
removing food from the warmer drawer as cookware and plates
will be hot.

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.
Figure 33: Oven door area to clean and not clean (gasket).
To set self clean:
Do not force the door open. 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

•
Remove all items from the oven and cooktop including
bakeware, 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 (Figure 33). These areas heat sufficiently
to burn soil on. Clean using soap and water prior to starting
Self Clean.
•
Do not clean the oven door gasket (Figure 33). 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. Do not use any cleaning materials on the oven
door gasket. Doing so could cause damage to the door
gasket.

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 (on
the web visit www.sears.com for replacement cooktop cleaner,
item number 40079). Buff with a nonabrasive 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.
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 priorto future use.
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.
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.
•
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 37: 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.

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 light is located at the rear of the oven cavity.
(See Figure 38).
To replace the oven interior light bulb:
Important note:
Use a paper towel or cotton glove while handling the new bulb
when installing.
