IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
injury to persons, or damage when using the range, follow
basic precautions, including the following:
■ WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF
THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED BY
PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP DEVICES. TO CHECK
IF THE DEVICES ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE
RANGE FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET
SECURELY ATTACHED TO FLOOR, AND SLIDE RANGE
BACK SO REAR RANGE FOOT IS UNDER ANTI-TIP
BRACKET.
■ CAUTION: Do not store items of interest to children in
cabinets above a range or on the backguard of a range –
children climbing on the range to reach items could be
seriously injured.
■ Proper Installation – Be sure the range is properly installed
and grounded by a qualified technician.
■ Never Use the Range for Warming or Heating the Room.
■ Do Not Leave Children Alone – Children should not be left
alone or unattended in area where the range is in use.
They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of
the range.
■ Wear Proper Apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn while using the range.
■ User Servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of the
range unless specifically recommended in the manual. All
other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
■ Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should
not be stored in an oven or near surface units.
■ Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires – Smother fire or flame
or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
■ Use Only Dry Potholders – Moist or damp potholders on
hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let
potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel
or other bulky cloth.
■ DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR
UNITS – Surface units may be hot even though they are
dark in color. Areas near surface units may become hot
enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch,
or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface
units or areas near units until they have had sufficient time
to cool. Among those areas are the cooktop and surfaces
facing the cooktop.
■ Use Proper Pan Size – The range is equipped with one or
more surface units of different size. 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
burner will also improve efficiency.
■ Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat
Settings – Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite.
■ Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place –
Absence of these pans or bowls during cooking may
subject wiring or components underneath to damage.
Protective Liners – Do not use aluminum foil to line surface
unit drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as suggested in
the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result
in a risk of electric shock, or fire.
■ Glazed Cooking Utensils – Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for range-top service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature.
■ Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend
Over Adjacent Surface Units – To reduce the risk of burns,
ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to
unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a
utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and
does not extend over adjacent surface units.
■ Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements – Heating
elements should never be immersed in water.
■ Do Not Cook on Broken Cooktop – If cooktop should
break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the
broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact
a qualified technician immediately.
■ Clean Cooktop With Caution – If a wet sponge or cloth is
used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to
avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
■ Use Care When Opening Door – Let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
■ Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers – Build-up of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.
■ Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.
■ Placement of Oven Racks – Always place oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved
while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating
element in oven.
■ DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR
SURFACES OF OVEN – Heating elements may be hot even
though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of an oven
become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use,
do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials
contact heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until
they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the
appliance may become hot enough to cause burns – among
these surfaces are oven vent openings and surfaces near
these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors.
For self-cleaning ranges –
■ 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.
■ 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.
■ Clean Only Parts Listed in Manual.
■ Before Self-Cleaning the Oven – Remove broiler pan and
other utensils.
For units with ventilating hood –
■ Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently – Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.
■ When flambeing foods under the hood, turn the fan on.

COOKTOP USE
■
Determine flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler
across the bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the ruler,
no space or light should be visible between it and the
cookware.
■
Cookware designed with slightly indented bottoms or small
expansion channels can be used.
■
Make sure the bottoms of pots and pans are clean and dry
before using them. Residue and water can leave deposits
when heated.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not cook foods directly
on the cooktop.
Ceramic Glass
(on some models)
The surface cooking area will glow red when an element is on.
Some parts of the surface cooking area may not glow red when
an element is on. This is normal operation. It may cycle on and off
to maintain the selected heat level.
It is normal for the surface of light colored ceramic glass to
appear to change color when surface cooking areas are hot. As
the glass cools, it will return to its original color.
Cleaning off the cooktop before and after each use will help keep
it free from stains and provide the most even heating. On
cooktops with light colored ceramic glass, soils and stains may
be more visible, and may require more cleaning and attention.
Cooktop cleaner and a cooktop scraper are recommended. For
more information, see “General Cleaning” section.
■ Avoid storing jars or cans above the cooktop. Dropping a
heavy or hard object onto the cooktop could crack the
cooktop.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not leave a hot lid on the
cooktop. As the cooktop cools, air can become trapped
between the lid and the cooktop, and the ceramic glass could
break when the lid is removed.
■
For foods containing sugar in any form, clean up all spills and
soils as soon as possible. Allow the cooktop to cool down
slightly. Then, while wearing oven mitts, remove the spills
using a scraper while the surface is still warm. If sugary spills
are allowed to cool down, they can adhere to the cooktop
and can cause pitting and permanent marks.
■
To avoid scratches, do not slide cookware or bakeware
across the cooktop. Aluminum or copper bottoms and rough
finishes on cookware or bakeware could leave scratches or
marks on the cooktop.
■
■
Cookware
IMPORTANT: Do not leave empty cookware on a hot surface
cooking area, element or surface burner.
Ideal cookware should have a flat bottom, straight sides, and a
well-fitting lid and the material should be of medium-to-heavy
thickness.
Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop. Aluminum and copper
may be used as a core or base in cookware. However, when used
as a base they can leave permanent marks on the cooktop or
grates.
Cookware material is a factor in how quickly and evenly heat is
transferred, which affects cooking results. A nonstick finish has
the same characteristics as its base material. For example,
aluminum cookware with a nonstick finish will take on the
properties of aluminum.
Use the following chart as a guide for cookware material
characteristics.
COOKWARE

Stainless steel
■
Heats quickly, but unevenly.
■
A core or base of aluminum or copper
on stainless steel provides even
heating.
Do not cook popcorn in prepackaged aluminum containers
on the cooktop. They could leave aluminum marks that
cannot be removed completely.
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not allow objects that
could melt, such as plastic or aluminum foil, to touch any part
of the entire cooktop.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not use the cooktop as a
cutting board.
■
Use cookware about the same size as the surface cooking
area. Cookware should not extend more than ½" (1.3 cm)
outside the area.
Cast iron
Ceramic or
Ceramic glass

C
A. Surface cooking area
B. Cookware/canner
C. ½" (1.3 cm) maximum overhang
■
Use flat-bottomed cookware for best heat conduction and
energy efficiency. Cookware with rounded, warped, ribbed or
dented bottoms could cause uneven heating and poor
cooking results.
9
Use the following chart as a guide when setting heat levels.
Home Canning
When canning for long periods, alternate the use of surface
cooking areas, elements or surface burners between batches.
This allows time for the most recently used areas to cool.
■ Center the canner on the grate or largest surface cooking
area or element. On electric cooktops, canners should not
extend more than ½" (1.3 cm) beyond the surface cooking
area or element.
Do not place canner on 2 surface cooking areas, elements or
surface burners at the same time.
■
■
On ceramic glass models, use only flat-bottomed canners.

BROILING CHART
Broil
Broiling uses direct radiant heat to cook food. There are 2 broiling
choices, Full Broil and Center Broil. Full Broil uses both top
elements for maximum browning coverage of foods. Center Broil
uses the inner element for browning coverage of a smaller area.
■ For best results, use a broiler pan and grid. It is designed to
drain juices and help avoid spatter and smoke.
If you would like to purchase a broiler pan, one may be
ordered. See “Assistance or Service” section to order. Ask for
Part Number W10123240.
■
For proper draining, do not cover the grid with foil. The
bottom of the pan may be lined with aluminum foil for easier
cleaning.
■
Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit the remaining fat on
the edges to avoid curling.
■
Pull out oven rack to stop position before turning or removing
food. Use tongs to turn food to avoid the loss of juices. Very
thin cuts of fish, poultry or meat may not need to be turned.
■
After broiling, remove the pan from the oven when removing
the food. Drippings will bake on the pan if left in the heated
oven, making cleaning more difficult.
■
If the oven door is opened during broiling, the broil element
will turn off immediately and come back on once the door is
closed.
Before broiling, position rack according to the Broiling Chart. It is
not necessary to preheat the oven before putting food in unless
recommended in the recipe. Position food on grid in the broiler
pan, then place it in the center of the oven rack.
Close the door to ensure proper broiling operation.
To Broil:
1. Press BROIL once for FULL BROIL or twice for CENTER
BROIL.
Choose Full Broil when broiling larger amounts of food with
both broil elements. Choose Center Broil when broiling
smaller amounts of food with only the inner broil element.

Convection Cooking
(on some models)
In a convection oven, the fan-circulated hot air continually
distributes heat more evenly than the natural movement of air in a
standard thermal oven. This movement of hot air helps maintain a
consistent temperature throughout the oven, cooking foods more
evenly, crisping surfaces while sealing in moisture and yielding
crustier breads.
Most foods can be cooked by lowering cooking temperatures
25°F to 50°F (14°C to 28°C), and cooking time can be shortened
by as much as 30 percent, especially for large turkeys and roasts.
■ It is important not to cover foods with lids or aluminum foil so
that surface areas remain exposed to the circulating air,
allowing browning and crisping.
■
Keep heat loss to a minimum by opening the oven door only
when necessary.
■
Choose cookie sheets without sides and roasting pans with
lower sides to allow air to move freely around the food.
■
Test baked goods for doneness a few minutes before the
minimum cooking time with a method such as using a
toothpick.
Convection Bake
(on some models)
WARNING
Burn Hazard
Use an oven mitt to remove temperature probe.
Do not touch broil element.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns.
■
Use a meat thermometer or the temperature probe (on some
models) to determine the doneness of meats and poultry.
EasyConvect™ Conversion
(on some models)
Convection cooking temperatures and times can differ from
those of standard cooking. Depending upon the selected
category, EasyConvect™ conversion automatically may reduce
the standard recipe temperature and/or time you input for
convection cooking.
Foods are grouped into 3 general categories. Choose the
category most appropriate for the food to be cooked. To ensure
optimal cooking results, the oven will prompt a food check at the
end of a non-delayed cook time. Use the following chart as a
guide.
SETTING

To Use:
When using convection temperature conversion for BAKED
GOODS and OTHER FOODS, allow the oven to preheat before
placing food in the oven.
1. Press MEATS, BAKED GOODS or OTHER FOODS.
2. Press number pads to enter standard cook temperature.
3. Press number pads to enter standard cook time.
4. Press START.
“CHECK FOOD AT” and the stop time will appear on the oven
display, after preheating is complete.
When the stop time is reached, end-of-cycle tones will sound
if enabled. Open the door and check food.
5. Press OFF when finished cooking.
Convection Bake can be used to bake and cook foods on single
or multiple racks. It is helpful to stagger items on the racks to
allow a more even flow of heat. If the oven is full, extra cooking
time may be needed.
When cooking an oven meal with several different types of foods,
be sure to select recipes that require similar temperatures.
Cookware should sit in the oven with at least 1" (2.5 cm) of space
between the cookware and the sides of the oven.
Allow the range to preheat before placing food in the oven.
During convection baking preheat, the broil elements and the
bake element all heat the oven cavity. After preheat, the
convection element will cycle on and off in intervals to maintain
oven temperature, while the fan constantly circulates the hot air.
If the oven door is opened during convection baking or
preheating, the convection element and fan will turn off
immediately. They will come back on once the door is closed.
■ Reduce recipe temperature 25°F (14°C). The cook time may
need to be reduced also.
To Convection Bake:
Before convection baking, position racks according to the
“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section.
1. Press CONVECT BAKE.
Press the number pads to enter a temperature other than
325°F (163°C). The convection bake range can be set
between 170°F and 500°F (77°C and 260°C).
2. Press START.
“Preheating” will show in the display until the set temperature
is reached.
“Lo” will also appear in the display if the actual oven
temperature is under 170°F (77°C).
When the actual oven temperature reaches 170°F (77°C), the
oven display will show the oven temperature increasing in
1-degree increments.
When the set temperature is reached, if on, 1 tone will sound.
3. Press OFF when finished cooking.
Convection Roast
(on some models)
Convection Roast can be used to roast meat and poultry, and
bake foods, such as yeast breads, pies, loaf, bundt and tube
cakes on a single rack. During convection roasting, the bake and
broil elements will cycle on and off in intervals to maintain oven
temperature, while the fan constantly circulates the hot air.
If the oven door is opened during convection roasting, the broil
element and convection fan will turn off immediately and the
bake element will turn off within 2 minutes. They will come back
on once the door is closed.
■ Reduce recipe temperature 25°F (14°C). The cook time may
need to be reduced also.
To Convection Roast:
Before convection roasting, position racks according to the
“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. It is not necessary to
wait for the oven to preheat before putting food in, unless
recommended in the recipe.
Use the roasting rack on top of the broiler pan and grid. This
holds the food above the grid and allows air to circulate
completely around all surfaces.

Convection Broil
Convection Broil is ideal for cooking foods such as thinner cuts of
meat; filets of fish; boneless, skinless chicken; vegetables and
garlic bread.
During convection broiling, the broil elements will cycle on and off
in intervals to maintain oven temperature, while the fan constantly
circulates the hot air. The circulating air creates a seal on all sides
of the food so that turning of foods is often not necessary.
The temperature is preset at 450°F (232°C), but can be changed
to a different temperature. Cooking times will vary depending on
the rack position and temperature and may need to be adjusted.
If the oven door is opened during convection broiling, the broil
elements and fan will turn off after 30 seconds. They will come
back on once the door is closed.
