controls
The Surface Unit Control Knobs must be pushed in before turning
them. This helps avoid turning them on accidentally when wiping off the
Control Panel. And it helps keep small children from turning them on. You
must push in on them. ..then turn to the setting you want.
A design by each knob tells which unit is turned on by that knob.
(For example. [ . 1shows that tile right front unit.. the one closest to you
on your right.. will heat when you push in and turn that knob.)
The knob may be set anywhere between “HI” and “OFF.” As you
use your surface units. you will get used to the settings that match your
pots, pans and favorite foods the best.
As a guide. the setting should cook at about the following heats:
HI - To start most foods cooking. To bring water to a boil.
MED-HI ~ To hold a rapid boil; to fry pancakes or chicken.
MED -To make gravy, puddings and icings; to cook large quantities of Lseyetables.
MED-LO ~ To keel> food cooking after starting it at a higher setting.
LO - To keep food warm until ready to serve. You ~111notice
that YOLIcan set the heat higher or lower within the LO
band I 2,% 1 to help keep food at the temperature you
want
The Signal Light will glow whenever a Surface Unit is on. Be
sure this light is off when you have finished cooking.

Variable Broil Feature:
You might want to broil some foods slower than others. Broiling
can be slowed down by setting a lower temperature on the Oven Temperature Control Knob Instead of “BROIL.” Using a lower temperature will
cause the broil element to turn on and off during the broiling so that the
food broils more slowly.
When the Oven Temperature Control Knob is on “BROIL.” the
Broil Element heats all the time. Set the temperature lower and it heats
some of the time The lower the temperature setting, the shorter are the
periods of heating.
NOTE: The Oven Selector must be in the “BROIL” position in
order for the Broil Element to heat.
Resetting the oven temperature control:
Does your new oven seem hotter or colder than your old oven?
The temperatures in older ovens often shift very gradually, getting hotter
or colder without the user really noticing the change. Your new oven is
properly adjusted to provide accurate temperatures, but when compared
to your old range. the new design may give you different baking results. If
you think that the temperature setting on your range needs to be hotter or
colder. you can adjust the Oven Temperature Control Knob by yourself.
To adjust the setting, first pull the Oven Temperature Control Knob
straight off. On the back. just across from the locking screw. are a row of
notches on the black part of the knob and one tooth on the chrome part.
To set your o\ren about 10 F(5’C) cooler. loosen the locking screw
about two full turn< and move the row of notches one notch closer to
“LO ‘. To set your oven about lO”F(5-C) warmer, move the row of
notches one notch closer to “HI.” Each notch equals about lO^F(5-C).
Tighten the locking screw and put the knob back on the

The oven vent
There is an ol’en vent under the right rear surface element. When
the ol’en is on. heated air will escape through it. A vent is needed for air
circulation in the oven durtng baking. You can cook on this surface unit
whtle the oven is on A warm pan of food will stay warm on this unit while
the oven is on. It may be warm enough to melt butter. too.
Do not try to save heat or energy by blocking the vent. Poor
baking can result. Plastic utensils may melt if they are over the vent
while the oven is on.

Using
the self-cleaning
oven cycle
The Self-Cleaning Oven uses high heat that actually burns away
oven soil. For best results and safety. read this section carefully. Make sure
you understand how everything works before you set your oven to
“CLEAN ”
Things to do before you start:
l Some areas may not be cleaned during the Self-Cleaning
cycle,
--The frame around the oven opening
-The door. especially the part around the outside of the oven seal.
So11on these areas will be more difficult to remove after the SelfCleaning cycle Else hot water and detergent., or a soapy steel-wool
pad. Rinse well
l Do not move or bend the fiberglass
oven door seal. Do not try to
clean it by hand.
l The high heat during the cleaning cycle will discolor the racks and
take the shine off them lf they are left In the oven during the SelfCleaning cycle If you ulant your oven racks to stay shiny and brtght.
take them out before starting the cleamng cycle. If you do clean the
racks during the cleaning cycle. read the “Special Tips” at the end of
thl> sectton
l Don’t leave any ;~ots or pans In the oven durtng cleaning. They won’t
be able to stand the high heat.
l Wipe up spillovers. boilovers and grease that hasn’t baked onto the
bottom of the cxen This will help reduce smoking during the cleaning
cycle
l Chrome reflector bowls must not be cleaned in the oven.
l Turn on the ven: hood fan or other kitchen vents during the cleaning
cycle? This will help remove smoke, odor and heat that are normal
during the cycl<’

cycle:
2. Set the Oven Temperature
Control Knob to “CLEAN.”
3. The clock and dials for start
and stop time should all have the
right time of day.
4. Push in on the Stop Time
Knob and set it ahead as many
hours as you want for the cleaning cycle. For a lightly soiled
oven, two hours ahead may be
enough. For heavy soil, three
hours ahead may be about right.
If some soil does not get removed
during the cleaning cycle, see
“Special
Tips” later in this
section.
5. Lock the oven door by moving
the Lock Lever all the way to the
right. When it is all the way over,
the Clean Light will come on. If
the Clean Light doesn’t come on,
the lever isn’t all the way over
and the cleaning cycle won’t
start.
When the clean light comes on,
the oven starts the cleaning cycle.
About 20 minutes later, the Lock
Light will come on. It will stay on
during the cleaning cycle. The
door cannot be unlocked while
the Lock Light is on.
6. The oven will shut off when
the preset stop time is reached,
but the oven door will stay locked
until the oven has cooled. When
the Lock Light turns off, turn the
Oven Selector Knob and Oven
Temperature
Control Knob to
“OFF.” This turns off the Clean
Light. Now, move the Lock Lever
back to the left. Do notforce the
Lock Lever. If it doesn’t want to
move easily, wait until it does.
With the Lock Lever all the way
to the left, the oven door can be
opened.
7. When the oven has cooled ojf
all the way, wipe out any residue
or ashes from the bottom.
How the Self-Cleaning cycle works:
l When oven controls are set to “CLEAN.”
the oven gets much hotter
than it does for cooking This high heat causes soil on the inside oven
walls to burn oft or break up and mostly disappear While this is
happening, a sptcial part in the oven vent helps remove smoke. DO
not cover the rtgtlt-rear surface unit during the cleaning cycle
l The chart below shows about what happens during a 2-hour SelfCleaning cycle Any time less than that shortens only the cleaning
cycle. not the heating and cooling times.
l Don’t touch the range during the cleaning cycle. .it wdl be hot.
l When the cleantng cycle is over. you will find some fine ashes In the
oven The amount of ash depends upon the amount of soil there was
in the oven When the oven is cool, clean up all that IS left with a
damp cloth. cleallser. or a soap-ftlled steel-wool pad.
l During the cleaning cycle, you may hear the sounds of metal heating
and cooling The’5:eare normal sounds. and a lot like those you can
hear when the o\‘en heats for regular cooking

Special tips:
If the cleaning cycle doesn’t get the oven as clean as it should be.
the time set for cleaning was probably not long enough. Set the
cleaning time longer next time You can set it for more than 3
hours. if you warlt.
l Plan to clean tht> oven hefore it gets too heavily soiled. Otherwise, you may r:iotice more smoke than you would expect coming from the ovt’n vent And, the cleaning cycle has to be longer
to clean a very solled ocen.
l There uill be normal “heat odors” during the cleaning cycle. To
help get nd of thtlm keep the kitchen well ventilated.
l To stop the clearllng cycle after it has started.

The drawer below your oven IS meant to store pots and pans.
Never keep anything in there that will burn or melt.
You may want to remove the drawer for cleaning under the range.
Pull it straight out until it jtops. Lift the front and pull some more to get it
over the stop Now sltdcj it out until it stops again. Lift the drawer away
from the range until it slips out of the guides.
To put it back. fit the side rails at the back of the drawer into both
