is important
to us.
This guide contains safety statements under
warning symbols. Please pay special
attention to these symbols and follow any
instructions given. Here is a brief explanation
of the use of the symbol.
IMPORTANT
SAFETY
This symbol alerts you to such
dangers as fire, electrical shock,
burns, and personal injury.
INSTRUCTIONS
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical
General
ORead all instructions before using
the range.
*Install or locate the range only in
accordance with the provided
Installation Instructions. The range
must be installed by a qualified
installer. The range must be
properly connected to electrical
supply and grounded.
’ ‘L,

@WARNING: To reduce the risk
of tipping the appliance, the
appliance must be secured by a
properly installed anti-tip bracket.
To check if the bracket is installed properly, see “The anti-tip
bracket” on page 21.
*CAUTION: Do not store things
children might want above the
range. Children could be burned
or injured while climbing on it.
*Do not leave children 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. They could be
burned or injured.
@Do not operate the range if it is
damaged or not working properly.
.Do not use the range for warming
or heating the room. Persons
could be burned or injured, or a
fire could start.
aUse the range only for its intended
use as described in this manual.
ADO not touch surface units, areas
near units, heating elements, or
interior surfaces of oven. Surface
units and heating elements may
be hot even though they are dark
in color. Areas near surface units
and 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
surface units, areas near units,
heating elements, or interior
surfaces of oven until they have
had sufficient time to cool. Other
surfaces of the range, such as the
oven vent opening, the surface
near the vent opening, the cooktop,
and the oven door and window,
could also become hot enough
to cause burns.
‘\
43
aDo not wear loose or hanging
garments when using the range.
They could ignite if they touch a
hot surface unit and you could be
burned.
*Use only dry pot holders. Moist or
damp pot holders on hot surfaces
could result in burns from steam.
Do not let pot holder touch hot
heating elements. Do not use a
towel or bulky cloth for a pot
holder. It could catch on fire.
l Keep range vents unobstructed.
@Do not heat unopened containers.
They could explode. The hot
contents could cause burns and
container particles could cause
injury.
@Use only utensils approved for
oven use. Follow utensil manufacturer’s instructions, especially when
using glass or plastic utensils.
@Do not store flammable materials
on or near the range. The fumes
could create an explosion and/or
fire hazard.
When
using
the cooktop
@Make sure the reflector bowls are
in place during cooking. Cooking
without reflector bowls could subject the wiring and components
underneath them to damage.
ADO not line reflector bowls with
aluminum foil or other liners. Improper installation of these liners
could result in a risk of electric
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 heating
element will be exposed and could
result in the igniting of clothing or
pot holders. Correct pan size also
improves cooking efficiency.
@Check to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe 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 could ignite.
l Turn pan handles inward, but not
over other surface units. This will
help reduce the chance of burns,
igniting of flammable materials, and
spills due to bumping of the pan.

When
using - the oven
l Always position oven rack(s) in
desired location while oven is
cool. If a rack must be removed
while oven is hot, do not let pot
holder contact hot heating element in oven.
*Use care when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing
food.
Grease
*Grease is flammable. Do not
allow grease to collect around
cooktop or in vents. Wipe spillovers immediately.
@Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flaming pan on range by
covering with a well-fitted lid,
cookie sheet, or flat tray. Flaming
grease outside of pan can be
extinguished with baking soda or,
if available, a multipurpose dry
chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
Care and cleaning
6mall amounts of formaldehyde
and carbon monoxide are given
off in the Self-Cleaning cycle from
fiberglass insulation and food
decomposition. Significant exposure to these substances could
cause cancer or reproductive
harm. Exposure can be minimized by venting with a hood or
open window and wiping out
excess food spills prior to selfcleaning.
*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.
*Before self-cleaning the oven,
remove broiler pan, broiler grid,
oven racks, and other utensils.
Do not use your oven to clean
miscellaneous parts unless you
are instructed to do so in this Use
and Care Guide.
*Do not soak removable heating
elements in water. The element
will be damaged and shock or fire
could result.
*Do not clean door heat seal. It is
essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the seal. Clean only
parts recommended in this Use
and Care Guide.

l
tips
NOTES:
l 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 could 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.
l Do not leave
an empty utensil, or one
which has boiled dry, on a hot surface unit.
The utensil could overheat and damage
the utensil or surface unit.
Select a pan that is about the same size
as the surface unit.
’n
l
l
l
l
l
NOTE: For best results and greater
energy efficiency, use only flat-bottomed
cookware that makes good contact with
the surface units. Cookware with rounded,
warped, ribbed (such as some porcelain
enamelware), or dented bottoms could
cause severe overheating, which damages the cookware and/or surface unit.
You can, however, use the newer
cookware available with slightly indented
bottoms or very small expansion channels.
This cookware is specially designed to
provide the good contact needed for best
cooking results.
Also, woks, canners, and teakettles with
flat bottoms suitable for use on your cooktop are now available in most stores that
sell housewares.
The pan should have straight sides and a
tight-fitting lid.
Choose medium to heavy gauge
(thickness) pans that are fairly lightweight.
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.
Handles should be made of sturdy,
heat-resistant material and be securely
attached to the pan.
Home
canning
information
To protect your range:
l Use flat-bottomed
canners/pans
for best
results.
l Use the largest
surface unit for best
results. Also, use a canner/pan which can
be centered over the surface unit and
which does not extend more than 1 inch
outside surface unit area. Large diameter
canners/pans, if not properly centered,
trap heat and can cause damage to the
cooktop.
l
l
l
l
l
Do not place canner on two surface units
at the same time. Too much heat will build
up and will damage the cooktop.
Start with hot water. This reduces the
time the control is set on HI. Reduce heat
setting to lowest position needed to keep
water boiling.
Keep reflector bowls clean for best heat
reflection.
To prolong the life of the elements:
- Prepare small batches at a time.
- Do not use elements for canning all
day.
Refer to your canner manual for specific
instructions.
9
Optional canning kit
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 kit (Part No. 242905) from
your Whirlpool dealer or authorized
Whirlpool service company.

guidelines
Always position oven rack(s) in desired
location before turning oven on.
To move rack(s), lift rack(s) at front and
pull out.
Be sure the rack(s) is level.
If rack(s) must be moved while oven is
hot, use pot holders or oven mitts to
protect hands.
For baking/roasting
with one rack, place
the rack so the top of the food will be
centered in the oven.
When baking on two racks, arrange
racks on the bottom and third level from
the bottom.

NOTE: For recommended rack placement
when broiling, see “Broiling rack position
chart” on page 16.
For best air circulation
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.
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 corners on each oven
rack. Stagger pans so no pan is directly over
another.
l
l
l
Place the pans so that one is not directly
over the other.
For best results, allow 1 l/z to 2 inches
(4-5 cm) of space around each pan and
between pans and oven walls. There must
be a minimum space of 1 inch (3 cm).
Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at
one time.
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. Turn up foil edges and
make sure foil is about 1 inch (3 cm) larger all
around than the dish holding the food.
l Do not cover
the entire rack with aluminum
foil. It will reduce air circulation and cause
poor cooking results.
l Do not line oven bottom or entire oven
rack with foil or other liners. Poor baking
will result.

Setting
the clock
Push in and turn the Minute Timer Knob to
set the clock.
Using
the Minute
Timer
The Minute Timer does not start or stop the
oven. It works like a kitchen timer. Set it in
minutes up to an hour. You will hear a
buzzer when the set time is up.
NOTE: Do not push in the knob when
setting the Minute Timer, or when stopping
the buzzer. Pushing in and turning the
Minute Timer Knob changes the clock
setting.

/Tooth
Locking
Notches
1. Make sure the Oven Temperature
Control Knob is turned to the off position.
Pull knob straight off and flip it over.
2. Loosen the locking screws inside the
control knob. Note the position of the
notches.
3. To lower the temperature,
hold knob
handle firmly and move the tooth a notch
counterclockwise.
Each notch equals
about 5°F (2.5%).
4. To raise the temperature,
hold knob
handle firmly and move the tooth a notch
clockwise. Each notch equals about
5°F (2.5%).
5. Tighten the locking screws and replace
the control knob.
NOTE: DO NOT measure oven temperature with a thermometer. Opening the oven
door will lower the oven temperature and
give you an inaccurate reading. Also, the
thermometer temperature reading will
change as your oven cycles.
14
Broiling
NOTES:
Do not preheat when broiling.
l The Oven
Selector must be on BROIL
for broiling temperatures.
l Leave
the door partly open whenever
using the oven to broil. This allows the
oven to maintain proper temperatures.
l
1. Position
rack.
Position rack so that the surface of the
food is at least 3 inches (7.4 cm) away
from the broil element. See “Broiling
rack position chart” on page 16.
2. Put food on broiler pan and
place in center of oven rack.
3. Position
door.
Close the door to the Broil Stop position
(open about 4 inches [lo cm]). The door
will stay open by itself.
4. Set Oven Selector and Oven

tips
Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling.
They are designed to drain excess liquid
and grease away from the cooking surface
to help prevent spatter, smoke, or fire.
Do not cover the broiler grid with foil.
Place food about 3” or more from the broil
element.
Energy
saving
To ensure adequate grease drainage, do
not use cookie sheets or similar pans for
broiling.
After broiling, remove the broiler pan
from the oven when you remove the food.
Drippings will bake on the pan if you leave
it in the heated oven.
l
l
tips
Although the energy used for cooking is
usually a very small percentage of the total
energy used in the home, cooking energy
can be used efficiently. Here are some tips
to help you save 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 LO or OFF to finish
cooking. Use retained heat for cooking
when possible.
l Use the more efficient
surface units
instead of the oven when possible.
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
Turn on the surface unit only after placing
filled pan on the unit.
“Oven peeking” may cause heat loss,
longer cooking times, and unsatisfactory
baking results. Rely on your timer to keep
track of the cooking time.
Bake cakes, pies, or cookies when oven
is warm. Best time to bake is right after a
meal has been cooked in oven.
Preheat the oven no longer than
necessary.
Plan your meals for the most efficient use
of the range. When using the oven to cook
one food, try to cook the rest of the meal
in it also.
Do not preheat when broiling, roasting,
or cooking items such as casseroles.
Keep reflector bowls clean for best
heat reflection.
17
Using
the MEALTIMERTM
The MEALTIMER clock is designed to turn
the oven on and off at times you set, even
when you are not around.
Delayed time baking/roasting is ideal for
foods which do not require a preheated
oven, such as meats and casseroles. Do
not use delayed time cooking for cakes,
cookies, etc. -they will not rise properly.
Before using the MEALTIMER clock,
make sure the clock is set to the correct
time of day. (See “Setting the clock” on
page 12.)
Food Poisoning Hazard
Do not let food sit in oven more than
one hour before or after cooking.
Failure to follow the above can
result in death, food poisoning, or
sickness.
To delay start
automatically:

Using the Self-Cleaning
Cycle
The Self-Cleaning cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning
the oven interior. Like the other functions of your range, you operate the Self-Cleaning cycle
with the easy-to-use controls. Please review the instructions in this section to keep your
oven spotless.

Burn Hazard
Do not touch the oven during the Self-Cleaning
cycle.
Keep children away from oven during Self-Cleaning

Do not use commercial oven cleaners in your oven.
Failure to follow the above can result in burns, or illness from
inhaling dangerous fumes.

l
l
l
Before you start the Self-Cleaning
cycle,
make sure you:
l Hand-clean
the areas shown. 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.
l Remove
the broiler pan and grid and any
pots and pans being stored in the oven.
NOTE: You can clean the broiler pan
(without grid) in the oven if you have first
removed most of the soil by hand-cleaning
or in a dishwasher. If most of the soil is
not removed, too much smoking will occur.
The chrome broiler pan and grid will discolor
if cleaned in the Self-Cleaning cycle.
22
Wipe out any loose soil or grease.
This will help reduce smoke during the
Self-Cleaning cycle.
Remove the oven racks from the
oven if you want them to remain shiny.
You can clean the oven racks in the SelfCleaning cycle, but they will become
harder to slide. (See page 29.) If you clean
racks in the Self-Cleaning cycle, place
them on the 2nd and 4th rack guides.
(Guides are counted from bottom to top.)
Heat and odors are normal during the
Self-Cleaning cycle. Keep the kitchen well
ventilated by opening a window or by
turning on a vent hood or other kitchen
vent during the cycle.
NOTES:
l Do not force
the Lock Lever. You could
bend or break it. The lever is designed to
stay locked until the oven is cool enough
to safely open. Wait until it moves freely.
l Do not block
the vent during the SelfCleaning cycle. Air must move freely for
best cleaning results.
l Do not leave
plastic utensils near the
vent. They may melt.
l Do not leave
any foil in the oven during
the Self-Cleaning cycle. Foil could burn
or melt and damage the oven surface.
l The oven
light will not work during
the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Setting
the controls
1. Move the Lock Lever to the
right - the Clean position.
When the oven temperature goes
above normal baking/roasting
temperatures, the door cannot be opened
and the Lock Lever must not be moved.

tips
Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the
Self-Cleaning cycle to help get rid of heat,
odors, and smoke.
After the oven is cool, wipe up any
residue or ash with a damp cloth or
sponge. If any spots remain, clean with a
mild abrasive cleanser or cleaning sponge.
Clean the oven before it gets heavily
soiled. Cleaning a very soiled oven takes
longer and results in more smoke than
usual.
If 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 Self-Cleaning cycle
longer the next time and hand-clean areas
noted on page 22.
How the cycle
works
The Self-Cleaning cycle uses very high heat
to burn away soil and grease. During the
cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it
does for normal baking or broiling. This high
heat breaks up the soil or grease and burns
it away.
You can adjust the cycle time to the
amount of soil in your oven. You can set the
cycle 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 % hour before the 3%
hour setting is up.

Caring for Your Range
Your range is designed for easy care. You can do most cleaning with items found around
your home. Cleaning your range whenever spills or soiling occurs will help to keep it looking
and operating like new.
NOTE: Let range cool before cleaning.

Removing
units
and reflector
I.\$
P
1. Make sure all surface units are 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 hold-down clip and the reflector
bowl.
26
bowls
3. Pull the surface unit straight away from
the receptacle.
4. Lift out the reflector bowl. See “Cleaning
chart” on page 29 for cleaning instructions.
Replacing
1. Make sure all surface units are 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 hold-down clip.
4. When 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.
If a reflector bowl gets discolored, some of
your 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.
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.

Lift-up
cooktop
Injury Hazard
Lock both support rods in place.
Failure to do so can result in
serious injury.
1. Lift front of cooktop at both front corners
until the support rods lock into place.
2. Wipe with warm, soapy water. Use a
soapy, steel-wool pad on heavily soiled
areas.
3. To lower the cooktop, lift cooktop from
both sides while pressing the support
rods back to unlock them. Lower the
cooktop into place.
Cleaning
NOTE: Do not drop the cooktop. Damage
could result to the porcelain and the cooktop
frame.
