IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Warning
This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and
birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
•• 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, such as oven vent openings and surfaces
near these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors, also get hot and may cause
burns if not cooled.
•• Use care when opening door. The hot air and steam that escape can cause burns to
hands, face and eyes. Let hot air or steam escape from the oven before removing or
replacing food in the oven.
•• Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the
manual. All other servicing should be performed by a qualified technician.
•• Do not use harsh etching, abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven
door glass since they can scratch the surface. Scratches may cause the glass to shatter.
Warning
If the door glass, cooktop glass, surface, or oven heating unit of the range are damaged,
discontinue use of the range and call for service.
•• Do not operate the oven without the charcoal heater mesh.
•• Do not use plastic to cover food. Use foil or oven-safe lids only.
•• Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on the door, storage drawer or cooktop. They
could damage the range and even tip it over, causing severe personal injury.
•• Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom, or any other part of the oven with aluminum foil
or any other material. Doing so will disrupt heat distribution, produce poor baking results
and cause permanent damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil will melt to the interior
surface of the oven)
•• Never attempt to dry a pet in the oven.
•• Never use your appliance for warming or heating the room.
•• Always use pot holders or oven mitts when removing food from the oven or the surface
element. Cookware will be hot. Use only dry pot holders. Moist or damp pot holders on
hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let the pot holder touch hot heating
elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth to remove food.
•• Do not heat unopened food containers. Pressure in the containers may cause them to
burst which may result in injury.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Warning
Be certain that all packing materials are removed from the appliance before operating.
Keep plastic, clothes, paper, and other flammable materials away from parts of the
appliance that may become hot.
•• Do not store or use flammable material in the oven or near or on the cooktop. Flammable
materials include paper, plastic, pot holders, linens, wall coverings, curtains, and gasoline
or other flammable vapors and liquids such as grease or cooking oil. These materials can
be ignited when the oven and cooktop are in use.
•• Wear proper apparel. Do not wear loose-fitting or hanging garments, which may ignite if
they contact hot surfaces, and cause severe burns.
•• Do not use the oven for drying clothes. Only use the oven for its intended purpose.
•• If a cabinet storage is provided directly above cooking surface, place items that are not
frequently used and can be safely stored in an area subjected to heat. Temperatures may
be unsafe for volatile items such as flammable liquids, cleaners or aerosol sprays.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
CAUTION
Be certain that all packing materials are removed from the appliance before operating.
Keep plastic, clothes, paper, and other flammable materials away from parts of the
appliance that may become hot.
•• Always disconnect power from the appliance before servicing.
•• Do not use aluminum foil or any other material to line the oven bottom.
Improper installation of these liners may result in a risk of electric shock or fire.
•• Do not allow aluminum foil or the temperature probe to contact heating elements.
Warning
Before replacing the oven light bulb, switch off the electrical power to the oven at the
main fuse or circuit breaker panel. Failure to do so can result in severe personal injury,
death, or electrical shock.
DEEP FAT FRYER
•• Use extreme caution when moving or disposing of hot grease.
•• Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
•• If frying combinations of oils and fats, stir them together before heating.
•• Use a deep fat thermometer, if possible, to prevent overheating fat beyond the smoking
point.
•
• Use the least possible amount of fat for effective shallow or deep-fat frying. Filling the pan
with too much fat can cause spillovers when food is added.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
CHILD SAFETY
•• Do not touch the hot surface between the bottom of the oven door and the top of the
drawer on the front of the oven while the oven is in operation. The surface becomes hot
and can cause burns and other injury.
•• Do not leave small children unattended near the oven.
Warning
Do not leave children alone or unsupervised near the appliance when it is in use or is
still hot. Children should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance as
they could be injured or burned.
CAUTION
Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets above a range or on the back guard
of a range – children climbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.
•• Never let a child hang on the oven door.
•• Do not allow children to crawl into the oven.
•• Let hot utensils cool in a safe place, out of reach of small children.
•• Children should not be allowed to play with controls or other parts of the appliance.
GLASS-CERAMIC COOKING SURFACE
•• 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 SURFACE
UNITS OR AREAS NEAR UNITS or let clothing or other flammable materials contact
surface units or areas near units until they have had sufficient time to cool. This includes
the cooktop and the area above the oven door.
•• Do not cook on a broken cooktop. If the cooktop is broken, cleaning solutions and
spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a
qualified technician immediately.
•• Do not use the glass cooktop surface as a cutting board.
•• Do not place or store items that can melt or catch fire on the glass cooktop, even when it
is not being used.
•• Choose proper burner size. For smaller pots and pans, use the smaller heating
elements. For larger pots and pans, use the larger heating elements. Select pans that
have flat bottoms large enough to cover the heating elements. Using undersized pans
exposes a portion of the heating element to direct contact and may result in clothing
burning.
•• Glazed cookware. Only certain types of glass, glass-ceramic, ceramic, earthenware,
or other glazed cookware are suitable for range-top service without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature.
•• Never cook directly on the glass. Always use cookware.
•• Always turn the surface units off before removing cookware.
•• Turn cookware handles inward so they don't extend over adjacent surface units.
This reduces the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to
unintentional contact with the cookware.
•• Immediately clean spills on the cooking area to prevent a tough cleaning chore later.
•• Some cleaners can produce dangerous fumes if applied to a hot surface.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

ENERGY SAVING TIPS
•• Multiple-rack cooking saves time and energy. Whenever possible, cook foods requiring the
same cooking temperature together in one oven.
•• For optimal performance and energy savings, follow the guides on page 30 for proper rack
and pan placements.
•• Match the size of the cookware to the amount of food being cooked to save energy when
heating. Heating ½ quart of water requires more energy in a 3-quart pot than in a 1-quart
pot.
•• Use cookware with flat bottoms to provide the best contact with the cooktop surface when
cooking on the glass-ceramic cooktop.
•• Match the size of the cooktop burner or element to the size of the cookware in use. Using
a large element for a small pan wastes heating energy, and the exposed surface of the
element is a burn or fire hazard.
•• Reduce energy use by cleaning light oven soils with the EasyClean® feature instead of
self-clean.
•• Avoid opening the oven door more than necessary during use. This helps the oven
maintain temperature, prevents unnecessary heat loss, and saves on energy use.
SAFETY DURING USE
•• Do not touch the oven racks while they are hot.
•• If a rack must be moved while the oven is hot, do not let the pot holder contact the hot
heating element in the oven.
•
• Use caution with the Timed Cook or Delayed Timed Cook features. Use the automatic
timer when cooking cured or frozen meats and most fruits and vegetables. 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 cooking is complete. Eating
spoiled food can result in sickness from food poisoning.
•• Accessible parts may become hot when the grill is in use.
•• Do not place food or cookware on the bottom of the oven cavity. Doing so will cause
permanent damage to the oven bottom finish.
•• Do not use water on grease fires. Should an oven fire occur, leave the oven door closed
and turn the oven off. If the fire continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use a fire
extinguisher. Do not put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive and water can
spread a grease fire and cause personal injury.
ENGLISH
•• Always place the pan in the center of the surface unit you are cooking on. Never leave
surface units unattended at high heat settings. Proper contact of cookware to burner
also will improve efficiency. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spills that may catch on
fire.
•• Clean cooktop with caution. Do not use sponges or cloth to wipe spills on a hot cooking
area. Use a proper metal scraper. If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot
cooking area, it can cause steam burns. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if
applied to a hot surface.
•• Do not turn surface units on before placing cookware.
•• Do not store heavy items above the cooktop surface that could fall and damage it.
•• Do not place aluminum foil or plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon
holders, or plastic wrappings or any other material on the range when it is in use.
•• Do not use a steel-wool pad or scrub pad or abrasive cleaning pads. They can scratch the
surface.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
•• Pull the oven rack to the stop-lock position when loading and unloading food from the
oven. This helps prevent burns caused by touching hot surfaces of the door and oven
walls.
•• Do not use the oven if a heating element develops a glowing spot during use or shows
other signs of damage. A glowing spot indicates the heating element may fail and present
a potential burn, fire, or shock hazard. Turn the oven off immediately and have the heating
element replaced by a qualified service technician.
•• When using cooking or roasting bags in the oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
SAFETY WHEN CLEANING
•• Open a window or turn on a ventilation fan or hood before self-cleaning.
•• If the oven is heavily soiled with oil, self-clean the oven before using the oven again. The
oil could cause a fire.
•• Wipe up heavy soil on the bottom of the oven before using the Self Clean function.
•• Do not use oven cleaners. Commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of
any kind should not be used in or around any part of the oven.
•• Never keep pet birds in the kitchen. The health of birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes
released during an oven self-clean cycle. Fumes may be harmful or fatal to birds. Move
birds to a well-ventilated room.
•• Clean in the self-clean cycle only parts listed in this manual. Before self-cleaning the oven,
remove the broiler pan, all oven racks, the meat probe and any utensils or food from the
oven.
•• Important Instruction. The oven displays an F error code and sounds three long beeps
during the self-cleaning process if it malfunctions in the self-clean mode. Switch off the
electrical power to the main fuse or breaker and have the oven serviced by a qualified
technician.
•• It is normal for the cooktop of the range to become hot during a self-clean cycle.
Therefore, touching the cooktop during a self-clean cycle should be avoided.
•• Never pour cold water over a hot oven for cleaning. Doing so may cause the oven to
malfunction.
•• Make sure oven lights are cool before cleaning.
•• 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.
•• If there is a fire in the oven during self-clean, turn the oven off and wait for the fire to go
out. Do not force the door open. Introduction of fresh air at self-clean temperatures may
lead to a burst of flame from the oven. Failure to follow this instruction may result in severe
burns.
COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY
•• To protect against food-borne illnesses, cook meat and poultry thoroughly. The USDA has
indicated the following as safe minimum internal temperatures for consumption:
•• Ground beef, veal, pork, or lamb: 160 °F
•• Poultry: 165 °F
•• Beef, veal, pork, or lamb: 145 °F
•• Fish/seafood: 145 °F

Before Installing the Range
12 INSTALLATION
Installing the Range
Unpacking and Moving the Range
CAUTION
•• You should use two or more people to move
and install the range. (Excessive Weight
Hazard) Failure to do so can result in back or
other injury.
•• Do not use the door handles to push or
pull the range during installation or when
moving the range out for cleaning or
service. Doing so can result in serious damage
to the door of the range.
Remove packing material, tape and any temporary
labels from your range before using. Do not remove
any warning-type labels, the model and serial number
label, or the Tech Sheet that is located on the back of
the range.
To remove any remaining tape or glue, rub the area
briskly with your thumb. Tape or glue residue can also
be easily removed by rubbing a small amount of liquid
dish soap over the adhesive with your fingers. Wipe
with warm water and dry.
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol,
flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape
or glue. These products can damage the surface of
your range.
Your range is heavy and can be installed on soft
floor coverings such as cushioned vinyl or carpeting.
Use care when moving the range on this type of
flooring. Use a belt when moving the range to prevent
damaging the floor. Or slide the range onto cardboard
or plywood to avoid damaging the floor covering.
Choosing the Proper Location
CAUTION
•• Avoid placing cabinets above the range. To
minimize the hazard caused by reaching over
the open flames of operating burners, install a
ventilation hood over the range that projects
forward at least five inches beyond the front of
the cabinets.
•• Make sure wall covering, countertop and
cabinets around the range can withstand
the heat (up to 194 °F) generated by the
range. Discoloration, delamination or melting
may occur. This range has been designed to
comply with the maximum allowable wood
cabinet temperature of 194 °F.
•• Before installing the range in an area
covered with linoleum or other synthetic

Engaging the Anti-tip Device
Test Run
•• Move the range close enough to the opening to
plug into the receptacle.
Check if the range is properly installed and run a test
cycle.
•• Slide the range into position ensuring that the back
leg slides under the anti-tip bracket. The range
should sit flush against the back wall when properly
installed.
1
Touch Clear/Off to start test.
2
Turn each knob to the Hi position to check
that the surface heating elements are working
properly. The elements should glow red and
radiate heat, and they should cycle on and off
periodically even when the knob is in the Hi
position. This cycling prevents the glass-ceramic
from being cracked by thermal shock.
IMPORTANT : The warming zone does not
consume enough power to glow red.
3
After checking all the surface heating elements,
check the locking system by touching Clear/Off
for three seconds. The oven door should lock
and the cooktop should not operate while the
Lockout function is turned on. Touch Clear/Off
for three seconds to disable Lockout.
4
Now check the oven's operation. Touch Bake
and touch the number keys to set the oven
temperature to 350 °F.
5
The oven should finish preheating in 15 minutes,
and the convection fan should operate while the
oven is preheating.
6
After checking the oven's operation, turn the
temperature up to 450 °F and leave the oven on
for at least an hour to help remove any oil which
might cause smoke and odors when first using
the oven.
•• Carefully attempt to tip the range forward to ensure
that the anti-tip bracket is engaged properly. If
properly installed, the anti-tip bracket will prevent
the range from being tipped. If the range can be
tipped, reinstall the range until the anti-tip bracket is
properly installed and the range will not tip forward.
•• Turn on electrical power. Check the range for
proper operation.
NOTE
Smoke may come out of the range when it is first
used.

OPERATION 27
Choosing Cookware
The size and type of cookware will influence the
settings needed for the best cooking results. Be
sure to follow the recommendations for using proper
cookware.
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:
Cookware should have flat
bottoms that make good
contact with the entire surface
heating element. Check for
flatness by placing a ruler
across the bottom of the
cookware. The ruler should
touch the cookware across
the entire bottom, with no
gaps.
•• Aluminum - Excellent heat conductor. Some types
of food will cause it to darken (anodized aluminum
cookware resists staining and pitting). If aluminum
pans slide across the ceramic cooktop, they may
leave metal marks which will resemble scratches.
Remove these marks immediately.
Cookware recommendations
•• Flat bottom and straight sides
•• Heavy-gauge pans
•• Pan sizes that match the amount of food to be
prepared and the size of the surface element
•• Weight of handle does not tilt pan. Pan is well
balanced
•• Tight-fitting lids
•• Flat bottom woks
Cookware should not
•• Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors
easily. May leave metal marks on glass-ceramic
(see Aluminum above).
•• Stainless steel - Slow heat conductor with uneven
cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean and
resists staining.
•• Cast iron - A poor heat conductor but retains 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.
•• have a curved or warped
bottom.
Home Canning Tips
•• be smaller or larger than the
surface burner.
•• The base must not be more than 1 inch larger than
the element. Use of water bath canners with rippled
bottoms may extend the time required to bring the
water to a boil and may damage the cooktop.
•• have a heavy handle that tilts
the pan.
•• be a wok with a ring stand.
•• have loose or broken handles.

28 OPERATION
Using the Oven
Replacing Racks
Before Using the Oven
NOTE
•• Because the oven temperature cycles, an oven
thermometer placed in the oven cavity may not
show the same temperature that is set on the
oven.
•• It is normal for the convection fan to run while
preheating during a regular bake cycle.
•• The convection fan motor may run periodically
during a regular bake cycle.
•• The heat turns off if the door is left open during
baking. If the door is left open for longer than
30 seconds during baking, the heat turns off.
The heat turns back on automatically once the
door is closed.
Oven Vent
Areas near the vent may become hot during operation
and may cause burns. Do not block the vent opening.
Avoid placing plastics near the vent as heat may
distort or melt the plastic.
It is normal for steam to be visible when cooking
foods with high moisture content.
Oven Vent
Using Oven Racks
The racks have a turned-up back edge that prevents
them from being pulled out of the oven cavity.
Removing Racks
1
Pull the rack straight out until it stops.
2
Lift up the front of the rack and pull it out.
1
Place the end of the rack on the support.
2
Tilt the front end up and push the rack in.
CAUTION
•• Replace oven racks before turning the oven on
to prevent burns.
•• Do not cover the racks with aluminum foil, or
any other material, or place anything on the
bottom of the oven. Doing so will result in poor
baking and may damage the oven bottom.
•• Only arrange oven racks when the oven is cool.
Bake
Bake is used to prepare foods such as pastries,
breads and casseroles. The oven can be programmed
to bake at any temperature from 170 °F (80 °C) to
550 °F (285 °C). The default temperature is 350 °F
(175 °C).
Setting the Bake Function (example, 375 °F)
1
Touch Bake.
2
Set the oven temperature: touch 3, 7 and 5.
3
Touch Start. The oven starts to preheat.
As the oven preheats, the temperature is displayed
and rises in 5-degree increments. Once the oven
reaches the set temperature, a tone sounds and the
oven light blinks on and off.
4
When cooking is complete, touch Clear/Off.
5
Remove food from the oven.
NOTE
It is normal for the convection fan to operate
periodically throughout a normal bake cycle in the
oven. This is to ensure even baking results.
OPERATION 29
Tips for Convection Baking
•• Baking time and temperature will vary depending
on the characteristics, size, and shape of the
baking pan used.
•• Use Convection Bake for faster and more even
multiple-rack cooking of pastries, cookies, muffins,
biscuits, and breads of all kinds.
•• Check for food doneness at the minimum recipe
time.
•• Bake cookies and biscuits on pans with no sides
or very low sides to allow heated air to circulate
around the food. Food baked on pans with a dark
finish will cook faster.
•• Use metal bakeware (with or without a nonstick
finish), heatproof glass-ceramic, ceramic or other
bakeware recommended for oven use.
•• Dark metal pans or nonstick coatings will cook food
faster with more browning. Insulated bakeware will
slightly lengthen the cooking time for most foods.
NOTE
The oven bottom has a porcelain-enamel finish.
To make cleaning easier, protect the oven bottom
from excessive spillovers by placing a cookie
sheet on the rack below the rack you are cooking
on. This is particularly important when baking a
fruit pie or other foods with a high acid content.
Hot fruit fillings or other foods that are highly
acidic may cause pitting and damage to the
porcelain-enamel surface and should be wiped up
immediately.
Convection Mode
The convection system uses a fan to circulate
the heat evenly within the oven. Improved heat
distribution allows for even cooking and excellent
results while cooking with single or multiple racks.
Setting the Convection Function (example, 375 °F)
1
Touch Conv. Bake or Conv. Roast. The display
flashes 350 °F.
2
Set the oven temperature: touch 3, 7 and 5.
3
Touch Start. The display shows Conv. Bake or
Conv. Roast and the oven temperature starting
at 100 °F.
As the oven preheats, the display shows increasing
temperatures in 5-degree increments. Once the oven
reaches the set adjusted temperature, a tone sounds
and the oven light flashes on and off. The display
shows the auto converted oven temperature, 350 °F
and the fan icon.
4
When cooking has finished or to cancel, touch
Clear/Off.
NOTE
The oven fan runs while convection baking. The
fan stops when the door is open. In some cases,
the fan may shut off during a convection bake
cycle.
•• When using Convection Bake with a single rack,
place the oven rack in position 3. If cooking on
multiple racks, place the oven racks in positions 1
and 3 (for two racks).
•• Multiple oven rack cooking may slightly increase
cook times for some foods.
•• Cakes, cookies and muffins have better results
when using multiple racks.
The Convection Roast feature is designed to give
optimum roasting performance. Convection Roast
combines cooking with the convection fan to roast
meats and poultry. The heated air circulates around
the food from all sides, sealing in juices and flavors.
Foods are crispy brown on the outside while staying
moist on the inside. Convection roasting is especially
good for large tender cuts of meat, uncovered.
Tips for Convection Roasting
Use a broiler pan and grid when preparing meats for
convection roasting. The broiler pan catches grease
spills and the grid helps prevent grease splatters.
1
Place the oven rack on the bottom.
2
Place the grid in the broiler pan.
3
Place the broiler pan on the oven rack.
Grid (sold separately)
Broiler pan (sold separately)
CAUTION
•• Do not use a broiler pan without a grid.
•• Do not cover the grid with aluminum foil.
•• Position food (fat side up) on the grid.

OPERATION 31
Smoking
The Broil function uses intense heat from the upper
heating element to cook food. Broiling works best for
tender cuts of meat, fish, and thinly cut vegetables.
Some models may feature a hybrid broiler consisting
of an inner broiler that utilizes a carbon heating
element which provides instantaneous heat, and
a traditional outer broiling element. During normal
broiler operation, it is normal for either element to
cycle off intermittently.
CAUTION
•• Do not use a broiler pan without a grid. Oil can
cause a grease fire.
•• Do not cover the grid and broiler pan with
aluminum foil. Doing so will cause a fire.
•• Always use a broiler pan and grid for excess fat
and grease drainage. This will help to reduce
splatter, smoke, and flare-ups.
NOTE
•• This range is designed for closed-door broiling.
Close the door to set the Broil function. If the
door is open, the Broil function cannot be set
and door appears on the display. Close the
door and reset the Broil function. Opening the
door turns off the broil burner during broiling.
If the door is opened during broiling, the broil
burner turns off after five seconds. The broiler
turns back on automatically once the door is
closed.
Speed Broil (on some models)
The Speed Broil setting is designed to reduce the
amount of time it takes to broil foods. By utilizing
the infrared broil element, which provides heat
instantaneously, there is no need for preheating.
Setting the oven to Broil / Speed Broil
1
Touch Broil or Speed Broil once for Hi or twice
for Lo.
2
Touch Start. The oven begins to heat.
3
Let the oven preheat for approximately five
minutes before cooking the food if using broil.
4
Touch Clear/Off to cancel at any time or when
cooking is complete.
Due to the intense heat associated with broiling, it
is normal to experience smoke during the cooking
process. This smoke is a natural byproduct of
searing and should not cause you to worry. If you are
experiencing more smoke than you are comfortable
with, use the following tips to reduce the amount of
smoke in your oven.
1
Always use a broiler pan. Do not use saute pans
or regular baking sheets for safety reasons.
2
The broiler pan should always be thoroughly
cleaned and at room temperature at the
beginning of cooking.
3
Always run your cooktop ventilation system or
vent hood during broiling.
4
Keep the interior of your oven as clean as
possible. Leftover debris from prior meals can
burn or catch fire.
5
Avoid fatty marinades and sugary glazes. Both
of these will increase the amount of smoke you
experience. If you would like to use a glaze,
apply it at the very end of cooking.
6
If you are experiencing significant smoke with
any food item, consider:
•• Lowering the broiler to the Lo setting.
•• Lowering the rack position to cook the food
further away from the broiler.
•• Using the Hi broil setting to achieve the level of
searing you desire, and then either switching
to the Lo broil setting, or switching to the Bake
function.
7
As a rule, fattier cuts of meat and fish will
produce more smoke than leaner items.

OPERATION 33
Setting the Warm Function
Beef
1
Touch Warm or Warm/Proof.
2
Touch Start.
3
Touch Clear/Off at any time to cancel.
•• Steaks and chops should always be allowed to rest
for five minutes before being cut into and eaten.
This allows the heat to distribute evenly through the
food and creates a more tender and juicy result.
•• Pieces of meat that are thicker than two inches
should be removed from the refrigerator 30 minutes
prior to cooking. This will help them cook more
quickly and evenly, and will produce less smoke
when broiling. Cooking times will likely be shorter
than the times indicated in the Broiling Chart.
•• For bone-in steaks or chops that have been
frenched (all meat removed from around the bone),
wrap the exposed sections of bone in foil to reduce
burning.
Seafood
•• When broiling skin-on fish, always use the Lo broil
setting and always broil the skin side last.
•• Seafood is best consumed immediately after
cooking. Allowing seafood to rest after cooking can
cause the food to dry out.
•• It is a good idea to rub a thin coating of oil on the
surface of the broiling pan before cooking to reduce
sticking, especially with fish and seafood. You can
also use a light coating of non-stick pan spray.

Speed Roast
NOTE
•• To avoid lowering the oven temperature and
lengthening proofing time, do not open the oven
door unnecessarily. Check bread products early
to avoid over proofing.
•• Do not use the proofing mode for warming
food or keeping food hot. The proofing oven
temperature is not hot enough to keep foods
at safe temperatures. Use the Warm feature
to keep food warm. Proofing does not operate
when the oven is above 125 °F. Hot shows in
the display.
•• It is normal for the fan to operate during the
Proof function.
The Speed Roast feature is designed to quickly roast
poultry. The combination of intense heat from the
upper heating element and heated air from the back
heating element result in crispier food and help to
save cooking time. Speed roasting is especially good
for medium sized poultry.
NOTE
•• The recommended cook time is 60-65 minutes
for a whole chicken weighing 3.3 lb.
•• Adjust the cook time according to the weight of
the poultry.
•• Place the oven rack in position 2.
•• Speed Roast is designed to reduce the cooking
time. There is no need for preheating.

Cleaning the Glass-Ceramic
Cooktop
Burned-On Residue
1
CAUTION
While the cooktop is still hot, remove any burnt
on deposits or spilled food from the
glass-ceramic cooking surface with a suitable
metal razor scraper. (Similar to scraping paint
off of a windowpane, it will not damage the
decorated cooking surface.) Hold the scraper at
an approximate 30° angle to the cooktop.
•• Do not use scrub pads or abrasive cleaning
pads. They may damage your cooktop surface.
•• For your safety, wear an oven mitt or pot
holder while using a scraper on the hot cooking
surface.
Use ceramic cooktop cleaner on the glass cooktop.
Other creams may not be as effective or may scratch,
damage or stain the cooktop surface.
To maintain and protect the surface of the glass
cooktop, follow these steps:
1
Before using the cooktop for the first time, clean
it with a ceramic cooktop cleaner. This helps
protect the top and makes cleanup easier.
2
Use ceramic cooktop cleaner daily to help keep
the cooktop looking new.
3
Shake the cleaning cream well. Apply a few
drops of cleaner directly to the cooktop.
4
Use a paper towel to clean the entire cooktop
surface.
5
Rinse with clear water and use a dry cloth or
paper towel to remove all cleaning residue.
NOTE
•• Do not use a dull or nicked blade.
•• To prevent burns, wear an oven mitt or pot
holder while using the metal scraper.
2
NOTE
Do not heat the cooktop until it has been cleaned
thoroughly.
IMPORTANT
If any sugar or food containing sugar (preserves,
ketchup, tomato sauce, jellies, fudge, candy, syrups,
chocolate) spills, or plastic or foil melts on the
cooktop, remove the molten material IMMEDIATELY
with a metal razor scraper (it will not damage the
decorated cooking surface) while the cooking surface
is still hot to avoid the risk of damage to the
glass-ceramic surface. For your safety, please use an
oven mitt or pot holder while scraping the hot cooking
surface.
When the cooking surface has cooled down,
apply a few dabs (about the size of a dime) of an
approved cleaner in each burner area and work
the cleaning cream over the cooktop surface
with a damp paper towel.
NOTE

Metal Marks and Scratches
1
Be careful not to slide pots and pans across
the cooktop. Doing so will leave metal markings
on the cooktop surface. To help remove these
marks, use a ceramic cooktop cleaner with a
cleaning pad for ceramic cooktops.
2
If pots with a thin overlay of aluminum or copper
are allowed to boil dry, the overlay may leave
black discoloration on the cooktop. This should
be removed immediately before heating again or
the discoloration may be permanent.
CAUTION
Cookware with rough or uneven bottoms can
mark or scratch the cooktop surface.
EasyClean®
LG’s EasyClean® enamel technology provides two
cleaning options for the inside of the range. The
EasyClean® feature takes advantage of LG’s new
enamel to help lift soils without harsh chemicals, and
it runs using ONLY WATER for just 10 minutes in low
temperatures to help loosen LIGHT soils before
hand-cleaning.
While EasyClean® is quick and effective for small
and LIGHT soils, the Self Clean feature can be
used to remove HEAVY, built up soils. The intensity
and high heat of the Self Clean cycle may result in
smoke which will require the opening up of windows
to provide ventilation. Compared to the more intense
Self Clean process, your LG oven gives you the
option of cleaning with LESS HEAT, LESS TIME, and
virtually NO SMOKE OR FUMES.
When needed, the range still provides the Self Clean
option for longer, more thorough oven cleaning for
heavier, built up soils.
Benefits of EasyClean®
•• Do not slide metal or glass across the cooktop
surface.
•• Do not use cookware with any dirt build-up on
the bottom.
•• Helps loosen light soils before hand-cleaning
•• EasyClean® only uses water; no chemical cleaners
•• Makes for a better self-clean experience
- Delays the need for a self-clean cycle
- Minimizes smoke and odors
- Can allow shorter self-clean time

using the EasyClean® cycle. If your oven cavity is
above 150 °F (65 °C), Hot will appear in the display,
and the EasyClean® cycle will not be activated until
the oven cavity cools down.
1
Remove oven racks and accessories from the
oven.
2
Scrape off and remove any burnt-on debris with
a plastic scraper.
Suggested plastic scrapers:
•• A plastic spatula can be used as a scraper to
scrape off any chunks or debris before and during
oven cleaning.
•• Hard plastic spatula
•• Plastic pan scraper
•• Using the rough side of a non-scratch scouring pad
may help to take off burnt-on stains better than a
soft sponge or towel.
•• Plastic paint scraper
•• Old credit card
•• Certain non-scratch scrubbing sponges, such as
those made of melamine foam, available at your
local stores, can also help improve cleaning.
3
Fill a spray bottle with 1¼ cups (10 oz or 300 ml)
of water and use the spray bottle to thoroughly
spray the inside surfaces of the oven.
•• The range should be level to ensure that the bottom
surface of the oven cavity is entirely covered by
water at the beginning of the EasyClean® cycle.
4
Use at least ¼ cup (2 oz or 60 ml) of the water
to completely saturate the soil on both the walls
and in the corners of the oven.
•• For best results, use distilled or filtered water. Tap
water may leave mineral deposits on the oven
bottom.
•• Soil baked on through several cooking cycles will
be more difficult to remove with the EasyClean®
cycle.
•• Do not open the oven door during the EasyClean®
cycle. Water will not get hot enough if the door is
opened during the cycle.
•• For hard to reach areas such as the back surface
of the lower oven, it is better to use the Self Clean
cycle.
ENGLISH
When to Use EasyClean®
40 MAINTENANCE
5
Spray or pour the remaining 1 cup (8 oz or 250
ml) of water onto the bottom center of the oven
cavity. The indentation on the oven bottom
should be fully covered to submerge all soils.
Add water if necessary.
9
Clean the oven cavity immediately after the
EasyClean® cycle by scrubbing with a wet,
non-scratch scouring sponge or pad. (The
scouring side will not scratch the finish.) Some
water may spill into the bottom vents while
cleaning, but it will be captured
in a pan under the oven cavity
and will not hurt the burner.
NOTE
Use the "mist" setting on the spray bottle for
better coverage. The entire 1¼ cup (10 oz or 300
ml) of water should be used for each oven cavity
cleaned. Do not spray water directly on the door.
Doing so will result in water dripping to the floor.
6
Close the oven door.
Touch EasyClean®.
Touch Start.
CAUTION
•• Some surfaces may be hot after the
EasyClean® cycle. Wear rubber gloves while
cleaning to prevent burns.
•• During the EasyClean® cycle, the oven
becomes hot enough to cause burns. Wait
until the cycle is over before wiping the inside
surface of the oven. Failure to do so may result
in burns.
•• Avoid leaning or resting on the oven door glass
while cleaning the oven cavity.
7
A tone will sound at the end of the 10 minute
cycle. Touch Clear/Off to clear the display and
end the tone.
8
After the cleaning cycle and during handcleaning, enough water should remain on the
oven bottom to completely submerge all soils.
Add water if necessary. Place a towel on the
floor in front of the oven to capture any water
that may spill out during hand-cleaning.
NOTE
Do not use any steel scouring pads, abrasive
pads or cleaners as these materials can
permanently damage the oven surface.
10
Once the oven cavity is cleaned, wipe any
excess water with a clean dry towel. Replace
racks and any other accessories.
11
If some light soils remain, repeat the above
steps, making sure to thoroughly soak the
soiled areas. If stubborn soils remain after
multiple EasyClean® cycles, run the Self
Clean cycle. Be sure that the oven cavity is
empty of oven racks and other accessories,
and that the oven cavity surface is dry before
running the Self Clean cycle. Consult the Self
Clean section of your owner’s manual for
further details.
NOTE
•• If you forget to saturate the inside of the oven
with water before starting EasyClean®, touch
Clear/Off to end the cycle. Wait for the range
to cool to room temperature and then spray
or pour water into the oven and start another
EasyClean® cycle.
•• The cavity gasket may be wet when the
EasyClean® cycle finishes. This is normal. Do
not clean the gasket.
•• If mineral deposits remain on the oven bottom
after cleaning, use a cloth or sponge soaked in
vinegar to remove them.
•• It is normal for the fan to operate during the
EasyClean® cycle.
MAINTENANCE 41
The Self Clean cycle uses extremely hot temperatures
to clean the oven cavity. While running the Self Clean
cycle, you may notice smoking or an odor. This is
normal; especially if the oven is heavily soiled.
During the Self Clean cycle, the cooktop elements
and warming drawer cannot be used.
NOTE
•• Remove oven racks and accessories before
starting the Self Clean cycle.
During Self Clean, the kitchen should be well
ventilated to minimize the odors from cleaning.
•• If oven racks are left in the oven cavity during
the Self Clean cycle, they will discolor and
become difficult to slide in and out.
Before Starting Self Clean
•• Clean the frame of the oven and door with hot
soapy water. Rinse well.
•• Remove the oven racks, broiler pan, broiler grid, all
cookware, aluminum foil or any other material from
the oven.
•• The kitchen should be well ventilated to minimize
the odors from cleaning.
•• Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass material
of the oven door gasket cannot withstand
abrasion. It is essential for the gasket to remain
intact. If you notice it becoming worn or frayed,
replace it.
•• Wipe any heavy spillovers on the bottom of the
oven.
•• Wipe up any heavy spillovers on the oven
bottom.
•• Make sure that the oven light bulb cover is in place
and the oven light is off.
•• Make sure that the oven light bulb cover is in
place and the oven light is off.
•• The oven light cannot be turned on during a Self
Clean cycle. The oven light cannot be turned on
until the oven temperature has cooled below
500 ˚F (260 ˚C) after a Self Clean cycle is complete.
•• It is normal for the fan to operate during the Self
Clean cycle.
CAUTION
•• Do not leave small children unattended near
the appliance. During the Self Clean cycle, the
outside of the range can become very hot to
the touch.
•• If you have pet birds, move them to another
well-ventilated room. The health of some birds
is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off
during the Self Clean cycle of any range.
•• Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom or any
other part of the range with aluminum foil or
any other material. 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 surface of
the oven).
•• Do not force the door open. This can damage
the automatic door locking system. Use care
when opening the oven door after the Self
Clean cycle. Stand to the side of the oven when
opening the door to allow hot air or steam to

TROUBLESHOOTING
Can I use aluminum foil to catch drippings in my
oven cavity?
FAQs
Never use aluminum foil to line the bottom or sides fo
the oven or the warming drawer. The foil will melt and
stick to the bottom surface of the oven and will not be
removable. Use a sheet pan placed on a lower oven
rack to catch drippings instead. (If foil has already
melted onto the bottom of the oven, it will not interfere
with the oven's performance.)
What types of cookware are recommended for
use with the cooktop?
•• The pans must have a flat bottom and straight
sides.
•• Only use heavy-gauge pans.
•• The pan size must match the amount of food to be
prepared and the size of the surface element.
•• Use tight fitting lids.
•• Only use flat-bottom woks.
Why do the heating elements appear to be turning
ON and OFF during use of the cooktop or oven?
Depending on your cooktop element setting or the
temperature selected in your oven, it is NORMAL for
the cooking elements to cycle on and off.
My new oven doesn’t cook like my old one. Is
there something wrong with the temperature
settings?
No, your oven has been factory tested and calibrated.
For the first few uses, follow your recipe times and
temperatures carefully. If you still think your new
oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the oven
temperature yourself to meet your specific cooking
needs. Refer to the Oven Temperature Adjustment
section in this manual for easy instructions on how to
adjust your thermostat.
Is it normal to hear a clicking noise coming from
the back of my oven when I am using it?
Your new range is designed to maintain a tighter
control over your oven’s temperature. You may hear
your oven’s heating elements click on and off more
frequently on your new oven. This is NORMAL.
Why is the time flashing?
This means that the product has just been plugged
in, or that it has experienced a power interruption. To
clear the flashing time, touch any button and reset the
clock if needed.
During convection cooking the fan stops when I
open the door. Is that normal?
Yes, this is normal. When the door is opened, the
convection fan will stop until the door is closed.
Can I use aluminum foil on the racks?
Do not cover racks with aluminum foil. Covering
entire racks with foil restricts air flow, leading to poor
cooking results. Use a sheet pan lined with foil under
fruit pies or other acidic or sugary foods to prevent
spillovers from damaging the oven finish.
CAUTION
Foil may be used to wrap food in the oven or
warming drawer, but do not allow the foil to come
into contact with the exposed heating/broiling
elements in the oven. The foil could melt or ignite,
causing smoke, fire, or injury.
Can I leave my racks in the oven when running a
Self Clean cycle?
No. Although it will not damage the racks, it will
discolor them and may make them hard to slide in
and out during use. Remove all items from the oven
before starting a Self Clean cycle.
What should I do if my racks are sticky and have
become hard to slide in and out?
Over time, the racks may become hard to slide in
and out. Apply a small amount of olive oil to the ends
of the racks. This will work as a lubricant for easier
gliding.
What should I do for hard to remove stains on my
cooktop?
The cooktop should be cleaned after every use to
prevent permanent staining. When cooking foods with
high sugar content, such as tomato sauce, clean the
stain off with a scraper while the cooktop is still warm.
Use an oven mitt when scraping to prevent burns.
Refer to the MAINTENANCE section of this owner's
manual for further instruction.

To deactivate Lockout, touch and hold Clear/Off for
three seconds. The unlock melody sounds and Loc

My range is still dirty after running the
EasyClean® cycle. What else should I do?
The EasyClean® cycle only helps to loosen light soils
in your oven range to assist in hand-cleaning of your
oven. It does not automatically remove all soils after
the cycle. Some scrubbing of your oven range is
required after running the EasyClean® cycle.
I tried scrubbing my oven after running
EasyClean®, but some soils still remain. What can
I do?
The EasyClean® feature works best when the soils
are fully soaked and submerged in water before
running the cycle and during hand-cleaning. If soils
are not sufficiently soaked in water, it can negatively
affect the cleaning performance. Repeat the
EasyClean® process using sufficient water.
Sugar-based and certain greasy soils are especially
hard to clean. If some stubborn soils remain, use the
Self Clean feature to thoroughly clean your oven.
Soils on my oven walls are not coming off. How
can I get my walls clean?
Soils on the side and rear walls of your oven range
may be more difficult to fully soak with water. Try
repeating the EasyClean® process with more than
the ¼ cup (2 oz or 60 ml) spray recommended.
Will EasyClean® get all of the soils and stains out
completely?
It depends on the soil type. Sugar-based and certain
grease stains are especially hard to clean. Also, if
stains are not sufficiently soaked in water, this can
negatively affect cleaning performance. If stubborn
or built-up stains remain, use the Self Clean feature.
Refer to the Self Clean section of your owner's
manual.
Are there any tricks to getting some of the
stubborn soils out?
Scraping the soils with a plastic scraper before
and during hand-cleaning is recommended. Fully
saturating soils with water is also recommended.
However, certain types of soils are harder to clean
than others. For these stubborn soils, the Self Clean
cycle is recommended. Consult the Self Clean section
of your owner's manual for details.
Is it safe for my convection fan, broil burner or
heater element to get wet during EasyClean®?
Yes. The convection fan, broiler burner or heater
element may get a little wet during cleaning. However,
direct spray onto the broil burner and heater elements
is not necessary because these are self-cleaning
during regular use.
Do I need to use all 1¼ cups (10 oz or 300 ml) of
water for EasyClean®?
Yes. It is highly recommended that 1 cup (8 oz or
250 ml) of water be sprayed or poured on the bottom
and an additional ¼ cup (2 oz or 60 ml) of water
be sprayed on walls and other soiled areas to fully
saturate the soils for better cleaning performance.
I see smoke coming out of my oven range’s
cooktop vents during EasyClean®. Is this normal?
This is normal. This is not smoke. It is actually water
vapor (steam) from the water in the oven cavity. As
the oven heats briefly during EasyClean®, the water
in the cavity evaporates and escapes through the
oven vents.
How often should I use EasyClean®?
EasyClean® can be performed as often as you wish.
EasyClean® works best when your oven is LIGHTLY
soiled from such things as LIGHT grease splatter
and small drops of cheese. Please refer to the
EasyClean® section in your owner's manual for more
information.
What is required for EasyClean®?
A spray bottle filled with 1¼ cups (10 oz or 300 ml) of
water, a plastic scraper, a non-scratch scrubbing pad
and a towel. You should not use abrasive scrubbers
such as heavy-duty scouring pads or steel wool.
Except for a towel, all of the materials you need are
included in a special cleaning kit with your new range.

Symptoms
52 SMART DIAGNOSIS™
SMART DIAGNOSIS™
Should you experience any problems with your range,
it has the capability of transmitting data to your smart
phone using the LG Smart Oven application or via
your telephone to the LG call center.
Smart Diagnosis™ cannot be activated unless your
range is turned on by touching the Start button. If
your range is unable to turn on, then troubleshooting
must be done without using Smart Diagnosis™.
Using Smart Diagnosis™
Smart Diagnosis™ Using Your Smart
Phone
1
Download the LG Smart Oven application on
your smart phone.
2
Open the LG Smart Oven application on your
smart phone. Touch Smart Diagnosis™ button to
advance to the next screen.
3
Follow directions of the application. Using ‘Tag
On’ is recommended but, if it does not work well,
the application will show how to use Audible
Diagnosis.

] in the LG Smart Oven application
for a more detailed guide on how to use the Tag
On function.
NOTE
•• Call quality differences by region may affect the
function.
•• Use the home telephone for better
communication performance, resulting in better
service.
•• Bad call quality may result in poor data
transmission from your phone to the machine,
which could cause Smart Diagnosis™ to
malfunction.
Smart Diagnosis™ Through the Call
Center
1
Call the LG call center at: (LG U.S.) 1-800-2430000 (LG Canada) 1-888-542-2623.

When instructed to do so by the call center
agent, hold the mouthpiece of your phone over
the Smart Diagnosis™ logo on the machine.
Hold the phone no more than one inch from (but
not touching) the machine.
NOTE
Do not touch any other buttons or icons on the
display screen.
3
Touch and hold the Start button for three
seconds.
4
Keep the phone in place until the tone
transmission has finished. This takes about 6
seconds and the display will count down the
time.
5
Once the countdown is over and the tones have
stopped, resume your conversation with the call
center agent, who will then be able to assist you
in using the information transmitted for analysis.
NOTE
•• For best results, do not move the phone while
the tones are being transmitted.
•• If the call center agent is not able to get an
accurate recording of the data, you may be
asked to try again.
