IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR
USING YOUR OVEN
DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE HEATING
UNITS, OR SURFACE COOKING ELEMENTS, AREAS
NEAR THESE SURFACE HEATING UNITS, OR INTERIOR
SURFACE OF THE OVEN. Both surface heating and oven
heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in
color. Areas near surface cooking units may become hot
enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch,
or let clothing or other flammable materials touch these
areas until they have had sufficient time to cool. Among
these areas are the cook top, surfaces facing the cook top,
the oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings,
oven door and oven door window.
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.
• Use care when opening oven door, warmer drawer
or lower oven door — Stand to the side of the range
when opening the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam
escape before you remove or replace food in the oven.
• Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. The oven vent is
located below the backguard. Touching the surfaces in
this area when the oven is operating may cause severe
burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items
on or near the oven vent. These items could melt or
ignite.
• Placement of interior oven racks. Always place oven
racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack must
be moved while oven is hot use extreme caution. Use
potholders and grasp the rack with both hands to
reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot heating
elements in the oven. Remove all utensils from the rack
before moving.
• Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The
broiler pan and its insert allow dripping fat to drain and be
kept away from the high heat of the broiler.
• Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil.
Exposed fat and grease could ignite.
Wear proper apparel — loose-fitting or
hanging garments should never be worn while using the
appliance. Do not let clothing or other flammable materials
contact hot surfaces.
DO NOT USE WATER OR FLOUR on
grease fires — smother the fire with a pan lid, or use
baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
When heating fat or grease, watch it
closely. Fat or grease may catch fire if allowed to become
too hot.
Use dry potholders — moist or damp
potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let potholders touch hot heating elements.
Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of a
potholder.
Save these instructions for future reference.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR
USING YOUR COOKTOP
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR
CLEANING YOUR RANGE
• Know which knob controls each surface heating
unit. Place a pan of food on the surface element unit
before turning it on, and turn the element off before
removing the pan.
Before manually cleaning any part of the
range, be sure all controls are turned OFF and the range is
COOL. The range may be hot and can cause burns.
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of
grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to
the area around each surface element. Do not allow
grease to accumulate.
• Kitchen cleaners and aerosols — Always follow the
manufacturer’s recommended directions for use. Be
aware that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols
may ignite causing damage and injury.
• Clean ventilating hoods frequently — Grease should
not be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning
hoods.
• 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 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 element will also improve
efficiency.
• Utensil handles should be turned inward and not
extend over adjacent surface elements — To reduce
the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and
spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, the
handle of the utensil should be positioned so that it is
turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface
units.
• Never leave surface elements unattended at high
heat settings — Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry
may melt.
• Glazed cooking utensils — Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cook top service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer’s recommendations for cook top use.
• When flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn
the fan on.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR
SELF-CLEANING OVENS
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts listed in
this Use & Care Manual. Before self-cleaning the oven,
remove the oven racks, broil pan, broil pan insert and any
cookware, cooking utensils or foods from the oven.
• 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.
• 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.
• The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR
CERAMIC-GLASS COOK TOP
MODELS
• Do not cook on broken cook top—If cook top should
break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate
the broken cook top and create a risk of electric shock.
Contact a qualified technician immediately.
• Clean cook top 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 noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
Save these instructions for future reference.

Before Setting Oven Controls
Air circulation in the oven
Oven vent location
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 (See Fig. 3 ).
The oven vent is located under the left side of the
control panel (See Fig. 1). 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.

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.
Baking layer cakes with 1 or 2 oven racks
For best results when baking cakes or cookies using 2
oven racks, place cookware on rack positions 2 and 5 for
flat racks or 2 for flat and 4 for glide racks. For best results
when baking cakes or cookies using a single oven rack,
place cookware on rack in positions 3 or 4 for flat racks and
positions 2 or 3 for glide racks. (See Fig. 2).
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.
Arranging - always arrange
the oven racks when the oven
is cool (prior to operating the
7
oven).
To remove - pull the rack
forward until it stops. Lift up
front of rack and slide out.

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.
Be sure to follow the
recommendations for
using proper
cookware as
illustrated in both
Figs. 1 & 2.
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:
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 cooktops.
Glass - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic
cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass.
Fig. 1
Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of
the cookware (See Fig. 1). Cookware should have flat
bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface
heating element (See Fig. 2). For more detailed information
about the ceramic cooktop see Cooktop maintenance and
Cooktop cleaning in the Care & Cleaning section.
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 porcelainenamel 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.
• Cookware larger than
cooking area marked on
cooktop by more than onehalf inch or 12mm.
• Heavy handle tilts pan.
• Pan is smaller than the
heating area marked on
cooktop.

Before Setting Surface Controls
About the ceramic glass cooktop
Types of cooktop surface elements
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements located
below the surface of the glass. The design on 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 spreads to areas beyond the
surface elements. These surrounding areas may become
hot enough to cause burns.
The single radiant element or elements will have one round
outline pattern shown on the cooktop. The Warm Zone
feature located on the center rear area of the cooktop uses
one round outline and is designed to keep food warm only.
The dual radiant element (some models) 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 (See Fig. 2).
The triple radiant element allows the user to set the smaller
inner portion as a single element, both inner and middle
portions or set all three portions to heat together (See Fig. 2).
About the radiant surface elements
As the element temperature rises gradually and evenly, it
will glow red. It maintains it’s selected heat setting by
cycling ON and OFF, but 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.

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.
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.
• Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning.
Use a straightedge 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.
• 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.
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.
Hot Surface indicator light
The Hot Surface indicator light is located on each
Electronic Surface Element control and will glow when the
surface cooking area heats up. It will remain on until the
cooktop element has cooled to a MODERATE level.
• 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.

portions
• 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.
• For efficient cooking, turn OFF the element several
minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow
residual heat to complete the cooking process.
• Each surface element provides a constant amount of heat
at each setting. Refer to the Suggested radiant surface
element settings table for suggested power level settings.
• Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and
then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking.
• 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.

Convect Broil
Convection Features
Benefits of convection baking
Use the convect broil feature to cook thicker cuts of meats
that require direct exposure to radiant heat and the
convection fan for optimum browing results.
The Convect Broil function temperature may be set at any
temperature between 400°F (205°C) and 550°F (288°C).
Be sure to carefully follow all the recommended broil pan
and insert instructions and the directions for placing the
oven racks as provided in the “Broil” section.
— Foods may cook up to 25 to 30% faster, saving time and
energy.
— Multiple rack baking.
— No special pans or bakeware needed.
Convection functions use a fan to circulate the oven's heat
uniformly and continuously around the oven (See Fig. 1).
This improved heat distribution allows for fast, even cooking
and browning results. It also gives better baking results
when using two oven racks at the same time.
Example — To set Convect Broil with the default
broil oven temperature of 550°F:
1. Press Convect Broil keypad.
2. Press START.
3. Close the oven door when using Convect Broil.
Suggestions for convection features:
• For optimum cooking results it is recommended to
preheat the oven when baking foods such as cookies,
biscuits and breads.
• Reduce oven temperature 25°F from recipe’s
recommended oven temperature. Follow the remainder of
the recipe’s instructions using the minimum
recommended cook time.
To cancel Convect Broil at anytime press OFF.
Convect Roast
Meats cooked with Convect Roast function will be juicer
and poultry will be crisp on the outside while staying tender
and moist on the inside.
Convect Roast may be set for any oven temperature
between 300°F (149°C) to 550°F (288°C).
• When using 2 oven racks at the same time, place in
positions 2 and 4 for best results (See Fig. 1).
Convect Bake
Suggestions for Convect Roast:
Heated air flows around the food from all sides, sealing in
juices and flavors. Breads and pastry brown more evenly.
Most foods baked in a standard oven will cook faster and
more evenly with the convection feature.
Convect Bake may be set for any oven temperature
between 300°F (149°C) to 550°F (288°C).
• Preheating is not necessary when roasting foods using
Convect Roast.
• Since Convect Roast cooks food faster, reduce the cook
time by 25% from the recommended cook time of your
recipe (check the food at this time). If necessary,
increase cook time until the desired doneness is
obtained.
• Do not cover foods when dry roasting - this will prevent
the meat from browning properly.
Example — To set Convect Bake with a default
oven set temperature of 350°F:
1. Press Convect Bake keypad.
2. Press START.
To cancel Convect Bake at anytime press OFF.
Example — To set Convect Roast with a default

Important notes:
• If the oven door is opened when any convection function
is active, the convection fan will stop rotating until the
oven door is closed.
• When using convection bake cook time reductions may
vary depending on the amount and type of food being
cooked.
• Dark or dull pans absorb more heat than shiny bakeware
resulting in dark or overbrowning of foods. It may be
necessary to reduce the oven temperature or cook time
to prevent overbrowning of some foods. Dark pans are
recommended for pies. Shiny pans are recommended for
cakes, cookies and muffins.

EasyConvect™ Feature Meats and
Baked Goods
Important notes:
• If the oven door is opened when any convection function
is active, the convection fan will stop rotating until the
oven door is closed.
• When using either EasyConvect™ Feature Meats or
Baked Goods bake time reductions may vary depending
on the oven set temperature.
• The minimum amount of Cook Time that may be entered
using the EasyConvect™ Feature Meats and Baked
Goods function is 20 minutes.
The EasyConvect™ Feature Meats and Baked Goods
functions allow the conversion of a standard meat roasting
or baked good recipe for convection baking. These controls
use the normal recipe settings and adjust to a lower
temperature for convection baking. After the preheat
temperature is reached the oven set converted (reduced)
temperature will be displayed.
EasyConvect™ Feature Meats and Baked Goods are
designed to give optimum cooking performance when
preparing roasts and baked goods by providing a gentle
cycling of heat giving cakes more volume and allowing roasts
to brown more evenly.
If using either EasyConvect™ Feature Meats or Baked Goods
with a Cook Time or a Delay Start setting, the oven will display
CF when the bake time is 75% complete as a reminder to
check the food and then sound 1 long beep at regular intervals
until the set cook time has finished. (See Fig. 1).
Meat Probe
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.
Proper meat probe placement
• Always insert meat probe so that the probe tip rests in
the center of the thickest part of meat. Do not allow meat
probe to touch bone, fat, gristle or cookware.
• For bone-in ham or lamb, insert meat probe into the
center of lowest large muscle or joint. For dishes such as
meat loaf or casseroles, insert meat probe into center of
food. To find center of the food visually measure using
probe as a guide (See Fig. 2). When cooking fish, insert
meat probe just above the gill.

Setting Oven Controls
Sabbath Feature (for use on the Jewish
Sabbath & Holidays)
Example — To turn off the Sabbath feature:
Press and hold both Cook Time and Delay Start keypads
simultaneously for at least 3 seconds to turn the Sabbath
feature off. The control will provide an acceptance tone and
SAb will disappear from the display. The oven is no longer
programmed for the Sabbath feature.
For further assistance, guidelines for proper
usage and a complete list of models with the
Sabbath feature, please visit the web at
http:\\www.star-k.org.
The Cook Time and Delay Start keypads are
used to set the Sabbath feature. The Sabbath feature may
only be used after the Bake function is active.
Once the oven is properly set using the Bake function and
the Sabbath mode is active, the oven will remain
continuously ON until the Sabbath feature is cancelled. The
Sabbath feature will override the factory preset 12-Hour
Energy Saving feature and start the continuous bake mode.
What to do during a power failure or power
interruption after the Sabbath feature was activated:
Should you experience a power failure or interruption, the
oven will shut-off. When power is restored the oven will not
turn back on automatically, but will remember that it is set
for the Sabbath. The display will show the message SF for
Sabbath failure (Fig. 2).
Food may be safely removed from the oven while still in the
Sabbath feature, however the oven cannot be turned back on
until after the Sabbath/Holidays. After the Sabbath observance
turn OFF the Sabbath feature. Press and hold both Cook
Time and Delay Start keypads for at least 3 seconds
simultaneously and SF will disappear from the display.
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.
Important notes:
• It is not advised to attempt activating any other oven
function except Bake while the Sabbath feature is active.
ONLY the following keypads will function correctly when
the Sabbath feature is active: 0-9 number keypads,
Bake, START and OFF. ALL OTHER KEYPADS should
not be used once the Sabbath feature is activated.
• You may change the oven temperature once baking has
started. Press Bake keypad, use the numeric keypads to
enter the oven temperature change (170 to 550F°) and press
START (for Jewish Holidays only). Remember that the oven
control will no longer provide audible tones or display any
further changes once the Sabbath feature is active.
Example — To program the oven to Bake at
default oven temperature of 350°F and activate
the Sabbath feature:
1. Be sure the clock is set with the correct time of day.
2. Arrange oven racks, place cookware in oven and close
oven door.
3. Press Bake keypad.
4. Press START.
5. If Cook Time or Delay Start are not needed, skip this
step and continue to step 6. If a Cook Time or Delay
Start are desired enter the times at this point. Refer to
the Cook Time and Delay Start sections for detailed
instructions.
6. Press and hold both Cook Time and Delay Start
keypads simultaneously for about 3 seconds to set the
Sabbath feature. The control will provide an acceptance
tone and SAb (See Fig. 1) will appear in the display
indicating the oven is properly set for the Sabbath
feature.
Fig. 1
• It is recommended that any oven temperature change with
the Sabbath feature active be followed with 2 presses of
the START keypad to insure the oven remains ON even if
the oven temperature is set incorrectly. If an incorrect oven
temperature is set, the oven will default to 170°F or 550°F.
Try to set the desired oven temperature again.
• If the oven light is needed during the Sabbath, press the
Oven Light keypad before activating the Sabbath
feature. Once the oven light is turned on and the Sabbath
feature is active, the oven light will remain on until the
Sabbath feature is turned OFF. If the oven light needs to
be off, be sure to turn the oven light off before activating
the Sabbath feature.
• Remember the oven will shut-off automatically after
completing a Cook Time, Delay Start or Keep Warm
and therefore may only be used once during the Sabbath/
Jewish Holidays.
• If a Delay Start time longer than the default 11 hours and
59 minutes in advance is desired, set the oven control for
the 24 hour day display mode setting. For detailed
instructions see Setting 12 or 24 hour display modes.

Setting Warming Drawer Controls
Warming Drawer
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.
The purpose of the warming drawer is to keep hot cooked
foods at serving temperatures. Examples are vegetables,
gravies, meats, casseroles, biscuits, rolls and pastries. It is
not recommended to heat cold food in the warming drawer;
always start with hot food.
The warming drawer may also be used to warm dinner
plates. All food placed in the warming drawer should be
covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain quality.
Storage in or on appliance—flammable
materials should not be stored in an oven, warming
drawer, near surface units. This includes paper, plastic
and cloth items, such as cookbooks, plasticware and
towels, as well as flammable liquids. Do not store
explosives, such as aerosol cans, on or near the range.
DO NOT LEAVE CHILDREN ALONE —
children should not be left alone or unattended in the
area where appliance is in use. They should never be
allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance,
including the warming drawer.
Arranging warming drawer rack positions
The keep warming drawer rack may be used in 2 ways:
• In the upright position (See Fig. 1) to allow low profile
food items to be placed both under and on top of the rack
(for example, rolls or biscuits on top of the rack and a
casserole dish underneath).
• In the downward position (See Fig. 2) to allow for light
weight food items and empty cookware (for example,
rolls or pastries and dinner plates) on the rack.
DO NOT LEAVE CHILDREN ALONE
unattended where appliance is in use. The outside of
the range can become very hot to touch and can cause
burns or serious injury.
Always use potholders or oven mitts when
removing food from the warming drawer as cookware and
plates will be hot and you can be burned.
To set warming drawer:
1. Open warming drawer when cool and arrange Warming
Drawer rack as needed. Close the Warming Drawer.
2. Press the Warming Drawer’s On/Off keypad. If a heat
setting is not selected within 6 seconds the control will
turn off.
3. Scroll through the Low, Med and High heat settings by

Self Clean
• 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 (See Fig. 1). These areas heat
sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean using soap and water
prior to starting Self Clean (See Fig. 1).
• Oven light will not work during a Self Clean cycle.
• Remove any excessive spillovers. 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 spillovers 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.
• DO NOT clean the oven door gasket (See Fig. 1). 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.
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 set any amount of
cleaning time from 2 hours to 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.
Read before starting Self Clean
Be sure to read all the following caution and important
statements BEFORE starting a self-clean cycle:
DO NOT leave small children
unattended near the appliance. During the self-cleaning
cycle, the outside of the range can become very hot to
touch and can cause burns or serious injury.
REMOVE ALL OVEN RACKS and parts
before starting a self-clean cycle. If the oven racks are
left in the oven during the self-clean cycle, the glide ability
of the gliding racks will be damaged and will cause all oven
racks to loose their shiny finish and or turn blue. Remove
all oven racks and clean according to instructions provided
in the Care & Cleaning section of this manual.
DO NOT line the oven walls, racks,
bottom or any other part of the range 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.
Move birds to another well-ventilated
room.The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any range.
DO NOT force the oven 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 of the oven when opening the oven door to allow
hot air or steam to escape.
Fig. 1
To prepare for Self Clean:
• 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.
Setting Self Clean
Example — To set Self Clean to start
immediately:
1. Be sure the oven is empty and ALL oven racks are
removed. Remove all items from the cooktop. Be sure

allow enough time for the oven to cool and for the door
OPn message to appear (Fig. 4). When this message
turns OFF the oven door may be opened.
3. Restart Self Clean if needed.
When Self Clean is finished:
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.
1. CLn message will turn off and Hot will appear in display
window (See Fig. 3).
Important notes:
• If your control is set with the default 12 hour display
mode, the Delay Self Clean can only be set to start up to
11 hours and 59 minutes in advance. To set a Delay Start
Self Clean to begin 12 or more hours (maximum is 23
hours and 59 minutes) in advance, be sure to set the
control for 24 hour display mode.
2. Once the oven has cooled down (about 1 hour) and Hot
is no longer displayed the door OPn message will
appear (Fig. 4). When this message turns off the
oven door may be opened.
3. When the oven interior has completely cooled, wipe away any
residue or powdered ash with a damp cloth or paper towel.
Important notes:
• The kitchen area should be well ventilated using an open
window, ventilation fan or exhaust hood during the first
self-clean cycle to help eliminate the normal odors
associated with the first self-clean cycle.
• When the clean time finishes the oven door will remain
locked until the range has cooled sufficiently. In addition
to the programmed clean time, you must allow
about an additional hour for the oven to cool before
you will be able to open the oven door.
• If Self Clean is interrupted by power failure or cancelled
before the oven was thoroughly cleaned, it may be
necessary to run a self-clean cycle again. If the oven
reached a high enough temperature when
interrupted you may need to allow up to 4 hours for
the oven to cool before Self Clean can be run again.
• The Self Clean function will not operate whenever a radiant
surface element is ON or the Control Lock is active.

Gentle scrubbing with a soapy no-scratch cleaning pad will remove most spots.
Rinse with a 1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult
spots with an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean
water and a damp cloth, and then scrub with a soap-filled no-scratch cleaning pad.
Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Do not allow food spills with high sugar or
acid content (milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the
surface; they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.
Oven interior
For oven interior remove excessive spillovers from oven cavity bottom before starting
Self Clean. Clean any soils from oven frame and door liner outside the oven door
gasket. For very important cleaning precautions be sure to read all the instructions in
the Self Clean section.
Oven racks
Remove oven racks from oven cavity before starting Self Clean. Clean by using a
mild, abrasive cleaner following manufacturer's instructions. Rinse with clean water,
dry and then replace in oven.
Oven door
Use soap and water to thoroughly clean the top, sides and front of the oven door.
Rinse well. You may use a glass cleaner on the outside glass of the oven door. Do
not immerse the door in water. Do not spray or allow water or the glass cleaner to
enter the door vents. Do not use oven cleaners, cleaning powders or any harsh
abrasive cleaning materials on the outside of the oven door.
Ceramic cooktop
Do not use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop. See “Cooktop cleaning” and
“Cooktop maintenance” later in the Care & Cleaning section.
Stainless Steel (some models)
Only use cleaners and polishes that are specifically manufactured for cleaning
stainless steel. Always rub in direction of metal grain to avoid damaging. Do not use
cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorine. Do not use harsh
scrubbing cleaners. Polish with a lint-free cloth. Always be sure to wipe excess
cleaner/polish off from the metal surface as bluish stains may occur during future
oven heating that cannot be removed. Clean heavier soils with hot, soapy water and a
dishcloth. Rinse and dry using clean water and a cloth.
28
Care & 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.Kitchenaid.com for
replacement cooktop cleaner, item number 31464). 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.
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.
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 nonabrasive
plastic type no-scratch cleaning 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 nonabrasive
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.
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.
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.
30°
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.
29
Care & Cleaning
Cooktop cleaning
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.
• 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.
Important note:
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.

Before You Call • Solutions to common problems
Before you call for service, review the following list. It may save you time & expense. Possible solutions to these problems
are provided with the problem listed:
Problem
Solution
Poor baking results.
Many factors affect baking results. Make sure the proper oven rack position is
used. Center food in the oven and space pans to allow air to circulate. Allow
the oven to preheat to the set temperature before placing food in the oven. Try
adjusting the recipe's recommended temperature or baking time. If you feel the
oven is too hot or cool, see Adjusting oven temperature in Setting Oven
Controls section.
Appliance is not level.
• Be sure floor is level, strong & stable enough to adequately support range.
• If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
• Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven
rack. Adjust leveling legs at base of appliance until the rack is level.
• Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear not level. Be sure
cabinets are square & have sufficient room for appliance clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily.
Appliance must be accessible for
service.
• Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly. Contact builder or installer to
make appliance accessible.
• Carpet interferes with appliance. Provide sufficient space so appliance can
be lifted over carpet.
Entire appliance does not operate.
• Make sure power cord is plugged properly into outlet.
• Electrical power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local
electric company for service outage information.
• Service wiring is not complete. See Assistance or Service section of
manual for assistance contact information.
Oven portion of appliance does not
operate.
• The time of day is not set. The time of day must first be set in order to
operate the oven. See Setting clock in Setting Oven Controls section.
• Be sure the oven controls are set properly for the desired function. See
Setting Oven Controls section and review instructions for the desired cooking
function in this manual or see “Entire appliance does not operate” in this
checklist.
Surface element is too hot or not hot
enough.
Incorrect surface control setting. Adjust power level setting.
Surface element does not heat or does
not heat evenly.
• Be sure the correct surface control knob is turned ON for element needed.
• Lightweight or warped pans used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or
heavyweight cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped pans. Cookware
materials and weight of the material affect heating. Heavy & medium-weight
pans heat evenly. Because lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may burn
easily.
Oven light does not work.
Be sure the oven light is secure in the socket. Also see Replacing oven light

Burned-on residue can be cleaned with a stiff nylon brush and water or a
nylon scrubber. Be careful not to damage the oven gasket.
Oven racks left in oven cavity during Self Clean. Always remove oven racks
from oven cavity before starting a self-clean cycle. Clean by using a mild,
abrasive cleaner following manufacturer's instructions. Rinse with clean water,
dry and replace in oven.
