Make sure the reflector bowls
are in place during cooking.
Cooking without reflector bowls
could subject the wirin an’d
components undernea w them
to damage.
Do not line reflector bowls ,with
aluminum foil or other liners.
Improper installation of the’se
liners could 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 il could
result in t I! e igniting of clothing
or potholders. Correct pan size
also improves cooking
efficiency.
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 smokin and
greasy spillovers t Eat could
Ignite.
Turn pan handles inward, but
not over other surface units.
This will help reduce the
chance of burns, i niting of
flammable materia 9 s, and spills
due to bumping of the pan.
When using the oven
l
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 potholder contact hot
heating element in oven.
Use care when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam
escape before removing or
replacing food.
Grease
l
Grease is flammable. Do nlot
allow grease to collect around
cooktop or in vents. Wipe s8pillovers immediately.
l
l
Do not use water on grease
fires. Never pick up a flaming
pan. Smother flamin pan on
range by coverin WI9 h a wellfitted lid, cookie s97eet or flat

Burn and Fire Hazard
Be sure all control knobs are turned to IOFF
and all indicator lights are OFF when you
are not cooking.
Someone could be burned or a fire could
start if a surface unit is accidentally left ON
Until you get used to the settings, use the
following as a guide. For best results, start
cooking at the high setting; then turn the control
knob down to continue cooking.

tips
Select a pan that is about the same size as the
surface unit.
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, INhich
damages the cookware and/or surface unit.
You can, however, use the newer cookware
available with slightly indented bottoms or vet-y
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 tightfitting 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, heatresistant material and be securely attached to
the pan.
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 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 could
damage the utensil or surface unit.
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 kit (Part No. 242905) from your
Whirlpool dealer or authorized Whirlpoorservice
company.
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 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. Too much heat will build up and
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.
l Refer to your canner manual for specific
instructions.
Positioning
racks and pans
For baking/roasting
with one reck, place the
rack so the top of the food will be centered iii the
oven.
Rack placement for specific foods:
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
could result in personal injury.

NOTE: For recommended rack placement ‘Nhen
broiling, see “Broiling rack position chart” o 1
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 eve?.
This results in better baking.
l Place the pans so that one is not directly over
the other.
l For best
results, allow 1K 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 (2.5 cm).
l Use only one cookie sheet in the oven a. one
time.
Use the following as a guide to determilqe
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 arother.
Using
aluminum
foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spiiiovers fr(Drn
pies or casseroles:
l Place the foil on the oven rack below the rac’k
with the food. Turn up foil edges and make
8ure 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.
lt 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.
Electrical Shock and Fire Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements.
Failure to follow this precaution could result
in electrical shock or fire hazard and
damage to the elements.

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.
After broiling, remove the broiler pan from the
oven when you remove the food. Drippings will

16
Fire Hazard
Place meat the correct distance from the
element. Meat placed too close to the
element could 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
could result in fire. If foil is used, cut slits in
foil to line up 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, 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 grease 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.
l Use the more efficient surface units instead of
the oven when possible.
Using
the electronic
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 the 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.
MEALTIMERm
control
The electronic MEALTIMER control 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, suc:h as
meats and casseroles. Do not use delayed time
cooking for cakes, cookies, etc. undercooking
will result.
This section discusses two methods for :;tarting
baking/roasting now and stopping automatIcall)

l Do not let most UNFROZEN
food stand
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 containins
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 Llnit.
You can cook on the unit or keep food warm on it
while the oven is on. The vent is needed for air
circulation. Do not block the vent. Poor baking’
roasting can result.
NOTE: Plastic utensils left over the vent car1 mett.

How the cycle worb
The Setf-Cleaning cycle saves you from the toil and mess that often come with hand-cleaning the oven
interior. Like with other functions of your oven, you operate the Self-Cleaning cycle with the easy-to-use
electronic controls. Please review the instructions in this section to keep your oven spotless.
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.
Your oven is preset for a 3-hour Self-Cleaning
cycle. However, 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 28.)
The graph at the right is representative of a
normal, 3hour Self-Cleaning cycle. Note ttlat the
heating stops when the 3-hour setting is up, but it
takes longer for the oven to cool enough to
unlock

Remove the broiler pan grid and any poits
and pans being stored in the oven.
NOTE: You can clean the broiler pan (without
grid) in the oven if you have first removed rnost
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 grid
will discolor if cleaned in the Self-Cleaning
cycle.
l
Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This will
help reduce smoke during the cleaning cycle.
l
Remove the oven racks from the oven if you
want them to remain shlny. You can clean the
oven racks in the Self-Cleaning cycle, but they
will become harder to slide. (See page 34.) 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 Sel’:Cleaning cycle. Keep the kitchen well ventilated
by opening a window or by turning on a velit
hood or other kitchen vent during the cycle.

l
l
tips
Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the SelfCleaning 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 2nd
results in more smoke than usual.
30
l
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 SelfCleaning cycle longer the next time and handclean areas noted on page 27.

utensils on the surface units. They also help
catch spills. When they are kept clean, they
reflect heat better and look new longer.
ff a reflector bowl gets discolored, some 01 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
