With the Oven Selector on BAKE, the bottom element does most of the work. The top element heats, but does not turn red. [Baking, pg. 6 1. With the Oven Selector on TIMED BAKE, the MEALTIMER’ Clock can be used to turn the oven on and off automatically. (MEALTIMER Clock, pg. 8 1. Use the Oven Temperature Control to set baking or roasting temperature when the Oven Selector is on BAKE or TIMED BAKE. When both the Oven Selector and Temperature Control are on BROIL, the broil element heats all the time. The Oven Temperature Control can be set on a temperature for slower broiling (see Broiling, page 7 ). 5 Lilt rack at front and pull out. Set the Oven Selector BAKE. Put the rack(s) where you want them before turning on the oven. Rack(s) should be placed so food can be centered in the oven. Always leave at least 1’ 2 to 2 inches (4-5 Cm) between the sides of the pan and the oven walls and pans. For more information, see the “Cooking Guide.” Set the Oven Temperature Control to the baking temperature you want. on Let the oven preheat until the Signal Light goes off 6 During baking, the elements will turn on and off to help keep the oven temperature at the setting. The Signal Light will turn on and off with the elements. The top element helps heat during baking, but does not turn red. Put food in the oven. Oven rock walls ond door will be hot ADJUSTING When baking is done, turn both knobs to OFF. THE OVEN TEMPERATURE CONTROL Does your new oven seem to be hotter or colder than your old oven at the same settings? The temperature setting in your old oven may have changed gradually over the years. The accurate setting of your new oven can seem differneeds adjusting, follow these steps: ent.

Each notch equals about 10°F (5°C). BROILING 1. Place the rack where want it for broiling. you 2. Put the broiler pan and food on the rack. 3. Set the Oven Selector BROIL. 4. Set the Oven Temperoture Control on BROIL (or on a lower temperature for slower broiling). 5. During broiling, the oven door must be partly open. A built-in stop will hold it there. 6. When broiling is done, turn both knobs to OFF. on For slower brolllng, set the Oven Temperature Control on a temperature instead of BROIL. The broil element will then turn on and off instead of staying on. The lower the temperature setting, the slower the broiling. The Oven Selector must be on BROIL and the door partly open for all brolllng temperatures.

THE OPTIONAL SMOOTHTOP MODULE Cooking on the optional black smoothtop is o/most the same as cooking on surface elements. There are three differences you should know about: 1. The cookware you use. 2. What to expect. 3. The care and cleaning. Cookware... For best results, proper cookware must be used. Bottoms must be perfectly flat, with NO ridges, rims, patterns, dents, roughness or scratches. -Pans with uneven bottoms cause poor cooking results and may damage the smoothtop. -Nicks and scratches on a pan can damage the smoothtop. 16 l l l Bottoms must be clean. Heating a soiled pan can leave a stain on the smoothtop. Sliding aluminum pans or foil, and copper pans, on the smoothtop can leave a mark. The marks made by aluminum can be removed If they are not heated. See page 22 for cleaning and care suggestions. Cooklng... The glass will take longer to heat up than a regular surface unit. It will also take longer to cool down. Turn off the unit a few minutes before you are finished cookrng. l l The Care and Cleaning... Always clean the smoothtop after cooking. Use a special smoothtop cleaner/conditioner available from your appliance dealer, grocery, hardware or variety stores. Avoldlng stalns l Use a special smoothtop cleanericonditioner every time you use the Smoothtop Module. Follow the package directions carefully. l Wipe the smoothtop with a clean, damp paper towel before you use the smoothtop. (Do not use a sponge or cloth. A little leftover soap or soil can stain the smoothtop when heated.) l Use only clean cookware. l Avoid spillovers. Use pans with tall sides. l Don’t let covers drip on the smoothtop. OPTIONAL Wipe up any spill when the unit is cool enough not to steam when a wet cloth touches it. The longer you cook wlth a splllover on the unit, the harder It will be to remove that spill. Clean off metal marks (from copper or aluminum) right away. If heated, they may never come off Avoiding Damage Rough cookware, jewelry, salt, sand, knives, etc....can scratch the surface. Use only smooth cookware; wipe the surface before using. DO NOT use the smoothtop as a cutting board. l Sugary spills can cause pitting on the surface. Wipe a spill when the surface is cool. l Pans that aren’t flat can cause hot spots that can crack the surface. l Spilling ice-cold water on a hot surface may crack it. l Dropping heavy or hard objects on the cooktop can crack it. Be careful with heavy skillets. Don’t store jars or cans above the smoothtop. See the special “Smoothtop Cleanlng Chart” on page 22. l CUTTING BOARD Before using the Cutting Board... Wipe with damp sudsy cloth to remove dust. 2. Rinse and wipe dry. 3. Season it by coating with colorless minera oil. 4. Let oil stand a few hours; wipe off excess. To keep the Cutting Board looking new, sand the surface with fine sandpaper to remove cutting marks and stains. Clean and re-season. To sterilize the board, use a mixture of one teaspoon chlorine bleach to one quart water. Wipe cutting board. Clean and re-season. 1. t7 Cleaning and caring for your range CONTROL PANEL AND KNOBS SURFACE UNITS AND REFLECTOR BOWLS REMOVING 1. Be sure surface units are OFF and COOL. \ ‘;\ I - \ *es \ 1. 2. 3.

Line up opening in the reflector the surface unit receptacle. bowl with Terminal 3. Hold the surface unit as level as possible with the terminal just started into the receptacle. 4. While pushing the surface unit terminal into the receptacle, lift a little on the edge of the unit nearest the receptacle. 5. When the terminal is pushed into the receptacle as far as it will go, the surface unit will fit into the reflector bowl. 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 the utensils used may not be flat enough. Or some may be too large for the surface unit. In either case, some of the heat that is meant to go into or around a utensil goes down and heats the reflector bowl. This extra heat can discolor it. USING THE SELF-CLEANING CYCLE The self-cleaning cycle uses very hlgh heat to burn awcy soil. Before you start, make sure you understand exactly how to use the cycle safely. BEFORE YOU START 1. Clean areas that may not be cleaned during the cycle. Use hot water and detergent or a soapy steel-wool pad on... l the frame around the oven l the inside of the door, especially the part outside the oven seal. DO NOT try to clean the flberglass seal. DO NOT move It or bend It. 2. Remove any pots or pans you may have stored in the oven. They can’t stand the help reduce Clean ny loose soil or grease. This will smoke during the cleaning Door 19 SPECIAL TIPS 1. Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the cleaning cycle to help get rid of normal heat odors and smoke. 4. Oven racks lose their shine, discolor and become harder to slide on their guides when they are left in the oven during the cleaning cycle. To make them slide easier, polish the edges of the racks and rack guides with a soapy steel-wool pad, rinse well, and wipe on a thin coat of salad oil. 2. Clean the oven before it gets heavily soiled. Cleaning a very soiled oven takes longer and results in more smoke than usual. 5. 3. If the cleaning cycle doesn’t get the oven as clean as you expected, the cycle may not have been set long enough. Set the cleaning time longer for heavier soil. To stop the cleaning cycle after it has started: l Turn the Stop Trme Knob clockwise until the hand points to the right time of day. l Turn the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature Control to OFF. l When the oven cools, you can open the door. Wait until the oven is cool. SPECIAL CAlllIONS DO NOT touch the range during the cleaning cycle ...it can burn you. DO NOT use foil or other liners in the oven. During the cleaning cycle, they can burn or melt. DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners in your oven. Damage to the porcelain finish may occur. DO NOT block the vent during the cleaning cycle. Air must move freely for best results. SETTING THE CONTROLS 1. 20 Make sure the clock and start and stop time dials all have the right time of day. 2. Push in the Stop Time Knob and turn the hand clockwise about two or three hours. (Two hours for light soil; three or more for heavier soil.] 3. Set the Oven Selector to CLEAN. The Clean Light will come on and the door will lock automatically. 6. 4. Set the Oven Temperature Control to CLEAN. 5. The Lock Light comes on when the oven gets above normal baking temperatures. The door can’t be unlocked when the Lock Light is on. 7. Turn the Oven Temperature Control to OFF. 8. Affer the oven Is cool, wipe off any residue or ash with a damp cloth.Ifneeded, touch up spots with cleanser or soapy steel-wool pad. When the Lock Light goes off, turn the Oven Selector to OFF. This unlocks the door. DO NOT TOUCH THE RANGE DURING THE CLEANING CYCLE. IT CAN BURN YOU. HOW IT WORKS During the self-cleaning cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it does for baking or broiling...approximately 870” F (46&C). This heat breaks up grease and soil, and burns it off. The graph shows approximate temperatures and times during a selfcleaning cycle set for two hours.
