Do not line reflector bowls with
aluminum foil or other liners.
Improper installation of these
liners may result in a risk of
electrical shock or fire.
Select a pan with a flat bottom
that is about the same size as
the surface unit. If pan is
smaller than the surface unit,
some of the heatin element
will be ex osed an % ma
result in t f: e igniting of cYothing

Check to be sure lass cooking utensils are sa9 e for use on
the range. Only certain types
of glass, glass-ceramic,
ceramic, earthenware or other
glazed utensils are suitable for
cooktops without breaking due
to the sudden change in temperature.
Never leave surface units
unattended at high heat settings. A boilover could result
and cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite.
Turn pan handles inward, but
not over other surface units.
This will help reduce the
chance of burns, i niting of

tips
There is no one brand of cooking utensil that is
best for all people. Knowing something about pan
materials and construction will help you select the
correct cooking utensils for your needs.
l For best results and greater
energy efficiency,
use only flat-bottomed utensils that make good
contact with the surface units. To check the
flatness of a utensil:
-Turn it over and check the bottom of the pan
by placing a ruler across ft.
- Rotate the ruler in all directions. There should
be no gaps between the pan and the ruler.
NOTE: Woks, canners and teakettles with flat
bottoms suitable for use on your cooktop are
now available in most houseware stores or
departments.
l The pan should have straight sides and a tightfitting lid.
l Choose
medium to heavy gauge (thickness)
pans that are fairly lightweight. Remember that a
very heavy pan will be even heavier when filled
with food.
l The pan material
(metal or glass) affects how
fast heat transfers from the surface unit through
the pan material and how evenly heat spreads
over the pan bottom. Choose pans that provide
the best cooking results.
l Handles
should be made of a sturdy, heatresistant material and be securely attached to
the pan.
l Do not leave an empty utensil, or one which has
boiled dry, on a hot surface unit. It can overheat
and may damage the utensil or surface unit.
l Do not use canners,
woks and specialty utensils
with rounded, warped, ridged or dented bottoms.
These could cause severe overheating which
8 damages the utensil and/or surface unit.
Product Damage Hazard
If a surface unit stays red for a long time,
the bottom of the pan is not flat enough or is
too small for the surface unit. Prolonged
usage of incorrect utensils can result in
damage to the surface unit, cooktop, wiring
and surrounding areas. To prevent damage,
use correct utensils, start cooking on HI and
turn control down to continue cooking.
Home
canning
information
The large diameter of most water-bath or
pressure canners combined with high heat
settings for long periods of time can shorten the
life of regular surface units and cause damage to
the cooktop.
If you plan to use the cooktop for canning, we
recommend the installation of a Canning Kit.
Order the kii (Part No. 242905) from your Roper
dealer or authorized Roper service company.
To protect your range:
l Use flat-bottomed
canners/pans for best
resufts.
l For best results, use the largest surface unit.
Also, use a canner/pan which can be centered
over the surface unit and which does not
extend more than one inch outside surface unit
area. Large diameter canners/pans, if not
properly centered, trap heat and can cause
damage to the cooktop.
l Do not place canner on two surface units at the
same time. Excessive heat build-up will
damage the cooktop.
l Start with hot water. This reduces
the time the
control is set on high. Reduce heat setting to
lowest position needed to keep water boiling.
l Keep reflector bowls clean for best heat
reflection.
l To prolong the life of the elements:
- Prepare small batches at a time.
- Do not use elements for canning all day.
Positioning
racks
and pans
For baking/roasting with one rack the rack
should be placed so the top of the food will be
centered in the oven. Always leave at least 1l/z to
2 inches (4-5 cm) between the sides of the pan
and the oven walls and other pans.
For proper cooklng, follow these guidelines
for specific foods:
l Angel and bundt cakes, yeast breads, frozen
pies, large roasts and turkeys-place
rack on
lowest level. _
l Casseroles,
muffins, most quick breads and
meats-place rack on second or third level from
bottom.
l Cookies,
biscuits, cakes and non-frozen piesplace rack on second or third level from bottom.
When baking on two racks, arrange racks on
bottom and third level from bottom.
Personal Injury Hazard
. Always position oven rack(s) in desired
location before turning oven on. Be sure
the rack(s) is level.
l If rack(s) must be moved while oven is
hot, use potholders or oven mitts to
protect hands.
Failure to follow the above precautions may
resutl in personal injury.
NOTE: For recommended rack placement when
broiling, see “Broiling rack position chart” on
page 16.
For best air circulation
The hot air must circulate around the pans in the
oven for even heat to reach all parts of the oven.
This results in better baking.
. Place the pans so that one is not directly over the
other.
l Allow 1% to 2 inches (4-5 cm) of space around
each pan and between pans and oven walls.
l Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at one time.
Use the following as a guide to determine where to
place the pans.
One pan
Place in the center of the oven rack.
Two pans
Place in opposite corners of the oven rack
Three or four pans
Place in opposite comers on each oven rack.
Stagger pans so no pan is directly over another.
NOTE: “Oven peeking” may cause heat loss, longer
cooking times and unsatisfactory baking or roasting
results. Use a reliable kitchen timer to keep track of
the cooking time.
9
Using
aluminum
foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers from pies or
casseroles.
l Place the foil on the oven rack below the rack
with the food. The foil should have the edges
turned up and be about 1 inch (3 cm) larger all
around than the dish holding the food.
l Do not cover the entire rack with aluminum
foil.
lt will reduce air circulation and cause poor
cooking results.
l Do not line oven bottom or entire oven rack with
foil or other finers. Poor baking will result.
Electrical Shock and Fire Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements because it will damage them and
could resutt in shock or fire hazard.
The electronic

tips
Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling. They
are designed to drain excess liquid and fat
away from the cooking surface to help prevent
spatter, smoke or fire.
Refer to a broiling chart in a reliable cookbook
for correct broiling times.
After broiling, remove the broiler pan from the
oven when you remove the food. Drippings will
bake on the pan if it is left in the heated oven.

l
Fire Hazard
Place meat the correct distance from the
element. Meat placed too close to the
element may spatter, smoke, burn or
catch fire during broiling.
To ensure adequate grease drainage, do
not use cookie sheets or similar pans for
broiling. Also, covering the broiler grid
with foil is not recommended. Poor
drainage of grease may result in fire. If foil
is used, cut slits in foil to correspond with
all openings in broiler grid. Grease can
then drain away and cool in pan.
Energy
saving
tips
Although the energy used for cooking is usually a
very small percentage of the total energy used in
the home, tooting energy can be used efficiently.
Here are some tips to help you consewe energy
when using your cooking product.
l Use pans with flat bottoms,
straight sides and
tight-fitting lids.
l Match the pan to the surface unit size.
l Cook with a minimum
of liquid or fat to help
shorten cooking time.
l Preheat
pans only when recommended and for
the shortest time possible.
l Start food on higher heat settings,
then set
surface unit control on low or off to finish
cooking. Use retained heat for cooking when
possible.

for more than two hours before cooking
starts.
l Do not allow food to remain in oven for
more than two hours after the end of
cooking cycle.
NOTE: Do not use foods that will spoil while
waiting for cooking to start. Such foods are:
dishes with milk or eggs, cream soups and
cooked meats or fish. Also, foods containing
baking powder or yeast will not rise properly
when cooked using delay start.
The oven vent
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven
through a vent under the right, rear surface unit.
You can cook on the unit or keep food warm on it
while the oven is on.
Do not block the vent. Poor baking/roasting
can resutt.
NOTE: Plastic utensils left over the vent can melt.
Burn and Fire Hazard
If you leave a utensil on the right rear
surface unit, use potholders when moving
it. Pan handles can become hot enough to
burn.
Keep flammable materials away from oven
vent.
Failure to do so can result in burns or a fire.

The SeWleaning
cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning the oven
interior. Like the other functions of your range, the Self-Cleaning cycle is operated with the easy-to-use
electronic controls. Please review the instructions in this section to keep your oven spotless.
How the cycle
works
The SeWleaning
cycle uses very high heat to
bum away soil and grease. During the cycle, the
oven gets much hotter than it does for normal
baking or broiling-approximately
875’F (468%).
This high heat breaks up the soil or grease and
burns it away.
Your oven is preset for a 3-hour Self-Cleaning
cycle. However, the cycle time can be adjusted to
the amount of soil in your oven. The cycle can be
set anywhere between 2 and 4 hours. (See
“Setting the controls” on page 23.)
The graph at the right is representative of a
normal, 3-hour Self-Cleaning cycle. Note that the
heating stops when the 3-hour setting is up, but it
takes longer for the oven to cool enough to
unlock

Before you start the SeWCleaning cycle, make
sure you:
1. Hand-clean the indicated areas. They do not
get hot enough during the cleaning cycle for
soil to burn away. Use hot water and detergent
or a soapy steel-wool pad for cleaning.
NOTE: DO NOT clean, move or bend the seal.
Poor cleaning, baking and roasting may result.

2. Remove the broiler pan grid and any pots and
pans being stored in the oven.
NOTE: The broiler pan (without grid) can be
cleaned in the oven if most of the soil is
removed first by hand-cleaning or a dishwasher. lf most of the soil is not removed,
excessive smoking will occur. The chrome
broiler pan grid will discolor if cleaned in the
Self-Cleaning cycle.
3. Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This will
help reduce smoke during the cleaning cycle.
4. Remove the oven racks from the oven if you
want them to remain shiny. If the oven racks
are cleaned in the Self-Cleaning cycle, place
them on the 2nd and 4th rack guides. (Guides
are counted from bottom to top.)
NOTE: If oven racks are cleaned in the SelfCleaning cycle, they will become harder to
slide.
Heat and odors are normal during the SelfCleaning cycle. If needed, remove them by
opening a window or by turning on a vent hood
or other kitchen vent during the cycle.

Special
tips
Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the SelfCleaning cycle to help get rid of heat, odors and
smoke.
l After the oven is cool, wipe up any residue or
ash with a damp cloth.
* Clean the oven before it gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning a very soiled oven takes longer and
resufts in more smoke than usual.
l
. ff the Self-Cleaning cycle does not get the oven
as clean as you expected, the cycle may not
have been set long enough or you may not
have prepared the oven properly. Set the SelfCleaning cycle longer the next time and handclean areas noted on page 22.

Removing
1. Make sure all control knobs are turned off and
cool before removing surface units and
reflector bowls.
2. Lift the edge of the unit, opposite the receptacle, just enough to clear the element holddown clip and the reflector bowl.
25
3. Pull the surface unit straight away from the
receptacle.
4. Lii out thereflector bowl. See “Cleaning chart”
on page 28 for cleaning instructions.
Replacing
1. Make sure all control knobs are turned off and
cool before replacing surface units and
reflector bowls.
2. Line up openings in the reflector bowl with the
surface unit receptacle and the element holddown clip.
3. Hold the surface unit as level as possible with
the terminal just started into the receptacle.
Push the surface unit terminal into the
receptacle.
26
4. When the terminal is pushed into the receptacle as far as it will go, push down the edge
of the surface unit opposite the receptacle.
The element hold-down clip will keep the
surface unit from moving around.
NOTE: Reflector bowls reflect heat back to the
utensils on the surface units. They also help
catch spills. When they are kept clean, they
reflect heat better and look new longer.
lf a reflector bowl gets discolored, some of the
utensils may not be flat enough, or some may be
too large for the surface unit. In either case,
some of the heat that’s meant to go into or
around a utensil goes down and heats the
reflector bowl. This extra heat can discolor it.
