BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Cookware Material Types
Using Proper Cookware
The size and type of
cookware used will influence the radiant element
power level setting
needed for best cooking
results. Be sure to follow
the recommendations for
using proper cookware
as illustrated in Figure 1
and Figure 2.
Figure 1:
Testing cookware
Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of
the cookware (See Figure 1). Cookware should have flat
bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface
heating element (See Figure 2). For detailed information
about the ceramic cooktop, refer to the“Cooktop Maintenance” on page 47.
The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly
heat is transferred from the surface element to the pan
bottom. The most popular materials available are:
Aluminum - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food
will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware
resists staining and pitting). If aluminum pans slide across
the ceramic cooktop, they may leave metal marks which will
resemble scratches. Remove these marks immediately.
Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily (See
Aluminum).
Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking
results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor however will retain heat
very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is
reached. Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.
Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating characteristics will
vary depending on base material. Porcelain-enamel coating
must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktops.
Glass - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic
cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass.
IMPORTANT
• Flat bottom and straight
sides.
• Tight fitting lids.
• Weight of handle does
not tilt pan. Pan is well
balanced.
• Pan sizes match the
amount of food to be
prepared and the size
of the surface element.
• Made of material that
conducts heat well.
• Easy to clean.
• Always match pot
diameter to element
size.
• Curved and warped pans.
• Cookware larger than
cooking area marked on
cooktop by more than
one-half inch or 12mm.
NOTE
• Heavy handle tilts pan.
• Pan is smaller than the
heating area marked on
cooktop.
Figure 2:
8
Do not place empty aluminum, glass or porcelain-enamel
coated cookware on the ceramic cooktop! The melting
point of cookware made with these materials may be
reached quickly especially if left empty, and they may
bond to the ceramic cooktop. If the cookware melts it will
damage the cooktop! Be sure to follow all the cookware
manufacturer’s suggestions when using any type of
cookware on the ceramic cooktop.
Proper cookware placement
Due to the high intensity of heat generated by the surface
elements, the glass surface will turn green when the
element is turned off. This phenomenon is normal and the
glass will come back to its original white color after it has
completely cooled down. (White glass cooktops only).
BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
About the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements located
below the surface of the glass. The design of the ceramic
cooktop outlines the area of the surface element underneath. Be sure to match the pan size with the diameter of
the element outline on the cooktop and only flat-bottomed
cookware should be used.
The type and size of cookware, the number of surface
elements in use and their settings are all factors that will
affect the amount of heat that will spread to areas beyond
the surface elements. The areas surrounding the elements
may become hot enough to cause burns.
About the Radiant Surface Elements
The element temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the
temperature rises, the element will glow red. To maintain
the selected setting the element will cycle on and off. The
heating element retains enough heat to provide a uniform
and consistent heat during the off cycle.
NOTE
Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to
cycle on and off, even at the HI setting. This helps to
prevent damage to the ceramic smooth top. Cycling at the
HI setting is normal and can occur if the cookware is too
small for the radiant element or if the cookware bottom is
not flat.
Be sure to read detailed instructions for ceramic glass
cooktop cleaning in the General Care & Cleaning section
and Before You Call checklist section of this Use and
Care Guide.
For efficient cooking, turn off the element several minutes
before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to
complete the cooking process.
Element ON & hot surface indicator lights
Your appliance is equipped with two different types of
radiant surface control indicator lights that will glow on the
backguard- the Element On indicator light and the hot
surface indicator lights.
The element ON indicator lights are located on the control
panel between the two radiant element control knob and will
glow when a surface element is turned ON.
Figure 3:
Element ON indicator light locations
9
BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
The electronic surface element control (ESEC)
(some models)
The Electronic Surface Element Control (ESEC) feature
includes digital display windows. The ESEC feature
provides a numeric digital setting for the radiant surface
element positions on the cooktop. These settings work the
same way as normal knob setting indicators work except
the settings are displayed in digital windows.
ESEC hot element indicator message (HE)
After using any of the single or dual radiant element
positions the cooktop will become very hot. Even after
turning the control knob to OFF, the cooktop will remain hot
for some time. The ESEC control monitors the temperature
of the cooktop and displays the message "HE" (hot
element) warning when the cooktop is still too hot to touch
(See Figure 6). If the HE message appears in the window,
the control can still be turned on again for use.
The available ESEC display settings
The ESEC control provides various heat levels from Hi
(Figure 4) to Lo (Figure 5) and OFF (Figure 4). The settings
between 3.0 and 9.5 increase or decrease in increments of
.5 (1/2). The settings between 1.2 and 3.0 are Simmer
settings which decrease or increase in increments of.2 (1/5)
to Lo (Figure 5; lowest Simmer setting) for more precise
settings at lower heat levels. Use the Recommended
Surface Setting Chart to determine the correct setting for
the kind of food you are preparing.
Figure 6:
Hot element indicator message
ESEC power failure indicator (00)
When the range is first plugged in or when the power supply
to the range has been interrupted, the ESEC control will
display the message "00". After a few seconds the "00"
message will disappear from the display.
Figure 4:
OFF position (L) and Hi position (R)
Figure 7: Er indicator message (L) and ESEC lockout
feature (R)
ESEC Lockout Feature (- -)
The ESEC feature will not operate during a Self-Clean cycle
or when the Lockout feature is active. Whenever the
Lockout feature is active, "- -" will appear in any ESEC
digital display windows to show that all surface elements
can not be activated (See Figure 7).
Figure 5:

Lo position (L) and 5.0 position (R)
BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
ESEC error indicator message (Er)
Home Canning
An error message will be displayed (glowing "Er") at power
up (or after a power failure) if ANY of the surface control
knobs were left in the ON positions (See Figure 7). If a
power failure should occur, be sure to set all of the surface
control knobs to the OFF position. This will reset the surface
controls.
Once the surface controls have been set to the OFF positions, the surface controls should return to normal operation. If the surface controls do not function and the "Er"
message remains in any display after following these procedures, contact your authorized servicer for assistance.
Cooktop Sabbath Day Feature and (Sb) Message
The ESEC will display the Sb messages whenever the
Sabbath Day feature is active. When activated, the Sabbath
Day feature works for both the oven and cooktop together.
Once the Sabbath Day feature is active, changes to the
heat levels for the cooktop elements will not show in the
displays. The cooktop will react slower to heat level
changes. To set the Sabbath Day feature, refer to “Setting
the Sabbath Feature (For use on the Jewish Sabbath and
Holidays)” on page 38.
CAUTION
Canning can generate large amounts of steam. Use
extreme caution to prevent burns. Always raise the lid to
vent steam away from you. Safe canning requires that
harmful micro-organisms are destroyed and the jars are
sealed completely. When canning in a water bath canner,
a gentle but steady boil must be maintained continuously
for the required time.
‘
Be sure to read and observe all the following points when
home canning with your appliance. Check with the USDA
(United States Department of Agriculture) Web site and be
sure to read all the information they have available as well
as follow their recommendations for home canning procedures.
•
Use only quality flat bottom canners when home
canning. Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom.
•
Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no ridges
that radiate from the bottom center when home
canning. Heat is spread more evenly when the bottom
surface is flat.
•
Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed
1 inch beyond the surface element markings or burner.
It is recommended to use smaller diameter canners on
electric coil and ceramic glass cooktops and to center
canners on the burner grates.
•
Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more
quickly.
•
Use the highest heat seating when first bringing the
water to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to
lowest possible setting to maintain that boil.
•
Use tested recipes and follow instructions carefully.
Check with your local Cooperative Agricultural
Extension Service or a manufacturer of glass jars for
the latest canning information.
•
It is best to can small amounts and light loads.
•
Do not leave water bath or pressure canners on high
heat for an extended amount of time.
•
Alternate surface units between each batch to allow the
units and surrounding surfaces to cool down. Try to
avoid canning on the same burner unit all day.

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Surface cooking settings
The size and type of utensil used, and the amount and type
of food being cooked will influence the surface element
power level setting needed for best cooking results.
Use Table 1 to determine the correct setting for the type of
food you are preparing.
IMPORTANT
Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and
then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking.
A glowing red surface heating area extending beyond the
bottom edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is
too small for the surface heating area.
NOTE
The size and type of cookware used will influence the
setting needed for best cooking results.
Table 1:
Recommended settings for surface elements

prevent damage to the ceramic smooth top. Cycling at the
HI setting is normal and can occur if the cookware is too
small for the radiant element or if the cookware bottom is
not flat.
For efficient cooking, turn off the element several minutes
before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat
to complete the cooking process.

NOTE
The size and type of utensil used, and the amount and
type of food being cooked will influence the settings
needed for best cooking results.
The surface control knobs do not have to be set exactly
on a particular spot. Use the graphics provided as a guide
and adjust the control knob as needed. Each surface
element provides a constant amount of heat at each
setting. Refer to Table 1 for suggested power level
settings.
SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Single radiant surface elements (all models)
The cooktop has 2 or 3 SINGLE radiant surface elements:
the left rear position, the right rear position. The left rear
element may also be used with the Bridge element.
CAUTION
Do not allow aluminum foil, empty glass/porcelain
cookware or any material that can melt to make contact
with the ceramic cooktop. If these items melt on the
cooktop they may damage the ceramic cooktop.
To Operate the Single Radiant Surface Elements:
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the radiant surface
element.
2. Push in and turn the surface control knob in either
direction to the desired setting (See Table 8). Start most
cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to
a lower setting to finish cooking. Each surface element
provides a constant amount of heat at each setting. A
glowing red surface heating area extending beyond the
bottom edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is
too small for the surface heating area.

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Keep warm zone (some models)
To Set the keep warm zone control:
The purpose of the keep warm zone is to keep hot cooked
foods at serving temperature. Use the keep warm feature to
keep cooked foods hot such as: vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and oven-safe dinner
plates.
1. Place cookware on the warmer zone.
Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat
cold food on the keep warm zone. All food placed on the
keep warm zone should be covered with a lid to maintain
quality.
For best results, when warming pastries or breads, the
cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape.
Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto
the surface and be very difficult to clean. Use only plates,
utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop
use on the keep warm zone.
CAUTION
The keep warm zone will not glow red when it is hot, but
becomes hot enough to cause burns. Avoid placing
hands on or near the keep warm zone until the keep
warm zone hot surface indicator light is OFF. Always use
potholders or oven mitts when removing food from the
keep warm zone as cookware and plates will be hot.
CAUTION
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper
shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on top of the
range when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite.
Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could catch fire if
placed too close to the surface elements.
CAUTION
Do not allow aluminum foil, empty glass/porcelain
cookware or any material that can melt to make contact
with the ceramic cooktop. If these items melt on the
cooktop they may damage the ceramic cooktop.
CAUTION
Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food
from the warmer zone as cookware and plates will be hot.

Convection Cooking
Convection cooking uses the three elements and a fan to
circulate the heat evenly and continuously within the oven
(See Figure 24).
Convection baking tips:
•
Fully preheat the oven before baking items like cookies,
cakes, biscuits, and breads.
•
If your recipe cooking temperature has already been
converted for convection baking, there is no need to
reduce your oven temperature. If not, you can easily
reduce using the Convection Convert feature. Please
see “Setting Convection Convert” on page 30 for further
instruction on temperature conversion.
•
When using any single rack, position the rack so that
the food is in the center of the oven.
•
For best results when baking cakes using two oven
racks, place racks in positions 2 and 4 (See Figure 25).
•
When baking using two oven racks, position cookware
as shown in Figure 26. Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) of
space between cookware for proper air circulation.
•
Dark or dull bakeware absorbs more heat than shiny
bakeware. It may be necessary to reduce oven temperature and cook time to prevent overbrowning of some
foods. Dark bakeware is recommended for pies. Shiny
bakeware is recommended for cakes, cookies, and
muffins.
•
Most baked goods (except cakes) should be baked on
pans with no sides or low sides to allow air to circulate
Benefits of convection cooking:
•
Multiple rack baking.
•
Some foods cook faster, saving time and energy.
•
No special pans or bakeware needed.
•
Food cooks more evenly.

Setting Slow Cook (some models)
The slow cook feature is best for cooking at lower temperatures for longer periods of time and works best for beef (ribs
and brisket), pork roasts, and poultry dishes.
Slow cook has two settings: Lo 225°F (108°C) and Hi 275°F
(135°C). Both settings can be used with the following
options:
•
Bake time
•
Bake time with delay start
Slow cook tips:
•
Slow cooking meats may result in the outside of the
meat turning dark; this is normal.
•
Completely thaw all frozen foods before cooking
•
When using a single oven rack, place in oven rack so
food is centered in oven.
•
Position multiple racks to accommodate size of cooking
utensils when cooking multiple food items.
•
Add any cream or cheese sauces during the last hour of
cooking.
•
Do not frequently open the oven door or leave the oven
door open when checking food items. The more heat
that is lost, the longer the food will need to cook.
•
Cover foods to keep them moist or use a loose or
vented cover to allow foods to turn crisp or brown.
•
Roasts may be left uncovered so browning can occur.
Cook times will vary depending on the weight, fat
content, bone, and the shape of the roast.
•
Preheating the oven is not necessary.

Steam Clean
The steam clean feature offers a chemical-free and timesaving method to assist in the routine cleaning of your oven.
Steam clean may be used before manually cleaning the
oven to help loosen soils on the oven bottom.
CAUTION
Do not add ammonia, oven cleaners, or any other
household cleaners or chemicals to the water used in the
steam clean cycle.
Before manually cleaning any part of the oven, be sure all
controls are turned off and the oven is cool. The oven
may be hot and can cause burns.
6. Steam clean is a 20 minute cycle. Time remaining is
shown in the display.
7. An alert will sound at the end of the cycle, and the End
message will show in the display. Press off to return to
the clock.
8. When the steam clean cycle is complete, stand to the
side of the oven out of the way of escaping vapor when
opening the oven door. The cycle includes a cool-down
period, so you may immediately use a soft cloth or
sponge to remove any remaining water.
9. Wipe oven cavity and bottom. Do not clean oven door
gasket (See Figure 38).
To set a steam clean cycle:
1. Oven should be at room temperature. If the oven temperature is above the room temperature, steam clean
will not start. Be sure the oven is cool. Remove all racks
and oven accessories.
2. Scrape or wipe loose debris from the oven bottom.
3. Pour 8 oz (235 ml) distilled or filtered water onto the
oven bottom (See Figure 36). Close the oven door.
Figure 38: Clean around the oven door gasket
For best results, clean oven immediately after the cycle is
complete. Steam clean works best for soils on the oven
bottom. Removal of especially stubborn or baked-on soils
may require a manual cleaning.
Some condensation or water vapor may appear close to the
oven vent. This is normal. The oven gasket may become
damp; do not wipe dry. Open door to broil position and allow
to air dry.

Local water sources often contain minerals (hard water)
and will leave deposits on the oven cavity. If this occurs,
wipe cavity with vinegar or lemon juice. Use distilled or
filtered water.
If the door is opened during the steam clean cycle, a beep
will sound and d-0 will show in the display. Close the oven
door. Keep oven door closed during steam clean cycle.
Steam clean cannot be programmed with a delay start. If
steam clean results are not satisfactory, run a self clean.
See “Self-Cleaning Operation” on page 43.
OVEN CONTROLS
Self-Cleaning Operation
CAUTION
•
Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom, or any other
part of the oven with aluminum foil. Doing so will block
heat distribution, produce poor baking results, and
cause permanent damage to the oven interior
(aluminum foil will melt to the interior surface of the
oven).
•
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
oven. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.
•
During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the oven
can become very hot to the touch. Do not leave small
children unattended near the appliance.
•
Do not force the oven door open. This can damage
the automatic door locking system.
•
Use caution when opening the door after the selfcleaning cycle is completed. The oven may still be
very hot. Stand to the side of the oven door when
opening the door to allow hot air or steam to escape.
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures
(well above normal cooking temperatures) which eliminate
soils completely or reduces them to a fine powdered ash
you can wipe away with a damp cloth
IMPORTANT
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
•
Do not use oven cleaners or protective coatings in or
around any part of the oven interior. Do not clean the
oven door gasket. Take care not to rub, damage, or
remove the gasket or use any cleaning substances on
the oven door gasket (See Figure 39). Doing so could
cause damage and reduce the efficiency of the oven’s
performance.
•
Clean any soil from the oven frame, door liner outside
the oven door gasket, and the small area at the front
center of the oven bottom with soap and water (See
Figure 39). These areas heat sufficiently to burn soil
on.
•
Remove any excessive spills from the oven cavity
before starting the self-cleaning cycle. To clean, use
hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spills can cause
heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or
acid content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit
juices, or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they
may leave a dull spot even after cleaning.
•
Do not use aluminum foil or liners in the oven. These
items are not made to withstand the very high temperatures of a self-clean cycle and will melt.
•
Remove all oven racks and accessories. If oven racks
are not removed before a self-clean, they will lose
their special coating and will no longer slide in and out
of the oven cavity effortlessly.
•
Oven racks accidentally left in the oven during self
clean may be wiped down after cooling with a hightemperature cooking oil to lubricate them.
What to expect during self-cleaning
While in self-clean mode, the oven heats to temperatures
much higher than those used in normal cooking. Sounds of
metal expansion and contraction are normal.
Odors are normal as the food soil is being removed. Smoke
may appear through the oven vent.
If heavy spills are not wiped up before cleaning, they may
flame and cause more smoke and odor than usual. This is
normal and safe and should not cause alarm. If available,
use an exhaust fan during the self-cleaning cycle.

CARE AND CLEANING
Cooktop Maintenance
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining
your ceramic glass cooktop.
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the
recommended CookTop® Cleaning Creme to the ceramic
surface (on the web visit www.sears.com for replacement
cooktop cleaner, item number 40079). Buff with a nonabrasive cloth or sponge. This will make cleaning easier
when soiled from cooking. The special cooktop cleaning
cream leaves a protective finish on the glass to help prevent
scratches and abrasions.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the
cooktop can cause metal markings on the cooktop surface.
These marks should be removed immediately after the
cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning cream.
Metal marks can become permanent if not removed prior to
future use.
Cooktop Cleaning
WARNING
Do not use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The
fumes can be hazardous to your health, and can
chemically damage the ceramic-glass surface.
CAUTION
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are
turned to OFF and the cooktop is cool. The glass surface
could be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is
touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
For light to moderate soil:
Do not:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to
the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a non-abrasive cloth
or sponge to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure
the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue.
•
Slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop.
For heavy, burned on soil:
•
Use cookware with dirt or dirt build up on bottom;
replace with clean cookware before using.
•
Use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in
the kitchen.
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to
the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a non-abrasive
cleaning tool, applying pressure as needed. Do not use the
pad you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.
•
Cook foods directly on the cooktop surface without a

CARE AND CLEANING
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content need be removed
immediately if spilled or melted onto the ceramic cooktop
surface. Permanent damage (such as pitting of the cooktop
surface) may occur if not removed immediately. After
turning the surface elements off, use a razor blade scraper
or a metal spatula with a mitt and scrape the soil from the
hot surface (as illustrated). Allow the cooktop to cool, and
use the same method for heavy or burned on soils.
General Cleaning
Refer to “Cleaning Various Parts of Your Range” on
page 45 for more detailed information about cleaning
specific parts of the range.
CAUTION
Before manually cleaning any part of the range, be sure
all controls are turned off and the range is cool. The range
may be hot and can cause burns.
Do not use the following on the cooktop:
•
Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such
as metal and some nylon pads. They may scratch the
cooktop, making it more difficult to clean.
•
Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach,
ammonia or oven cleaners, as they may etch or discolor
the cooktop.
•
Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as
they can leave soil or lint on the cooktop which can burn
and cause discoloration.
CAUTION
Ammonia must be rinsed before operating the oven.
Provide adequate ventilation.
Aluminum foil and utensils
WARNING
IMPORTANT
Never cover any slots, holes, or passages in the
oven bottom or cover an entire oven rack with
materials such as aluminum foil. Aluminum foil
linings may trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you
use an abrasive type cleaning pad. Only use cleaning
products that have been specifically designed for ceramic
glass cooktops.
WARNING
Protective Liners — Do not use aluminum foil to line
the oven bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual. Improper installation of
these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or
fire.

•
Aluminum foil - Use of aluminum foil on a hot cooktop
can damage the cooktop. Do not use thin aluminum
cooking utensils or allow aluminum foil to touch the
surface elements under any circumstances.
•
Aluminum utensils - The melting point of aluminum is
much lower than that of other metals. Care must be
taken when aluminum pots or pans are used on the
cooktop. If aluminum pans are allowed to boil dry when
using the cooktop, not only will the utensil be damaged
or destroyed, but it may fuse to, break, or mark the
ceramic glass surface, permanently damaging the
cooktop surface.

BEFORE YOU CALL
Solutions to Common Problems:
Before you call for service, review the following list. It may save you time and expense. Possible solutions are provided
with the problem listed:
Problem
Solution
Poor baking results.
Many factors effect baking results. Use proper oven rack position. Center food in the
oven and space pans to allow air to circulate. Preheat oven to the set temperature
before placing food in the oven. Try adjusting the recipe's recommended temperature
or baking time. See “Adjusting Oven Temperature” on page 37 if you feel the oven is
too hot or cold.
If your oven is cooking poorly or the Self Clean is performing badly, perform the
following check: Broil, Press the Up button, and “HI” should appear on the display.
Place your hand near the handle on the oven door. Between the door and the control
panel, you should feel a rush of air on your hand. If so, your unit is functioning
properly, and you have had a power failure in your home. If no air stream is present,
call a service technician to replace your cooling fan.
Oven light does not work.
Be sure the oven light is secure in the socket. See “Replacing the oven light” on
page 50.
Flames inside oven or smoking
from oven vent.
Excessive spills in oven. Grease or food spilled onto oven bottom or oven cavity.
Wipe up excessive spills before starting oven. If flames or excessive smoke are
present when using broil, see “Setting Broil” on page 28.
Self clean does not work.
Oven control not set properly. See “Self-Cleaning Operation” on page 43.
Oven racks discolored or do not
slide easily.
Oven racks left in oven cavity during self clean. Remove oven racks from oven cavity
before starting a self-clean cycle. Clean by using a mild abrasive cleaner following
manufacturer's instructions. Rinse with clean water, dry, and replace in oven.
Oven smokes excessively when
broiling.
Incorrect setting. Follow the “Setting Broil” instructions on page 28.
Meat too close to the broil element. Reposition broil rack to provide proper clearance
between the meat and broil element. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut remaining
fatty edges to prevent curling, but do not cut into lean.
Grease build up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary when broiling
frequently. Grease or food splatters will cause excessive smoking.
Oven control panel beeps and
displays any F or E code error.
Oven control has detected a fault or error condition. Press the off key to clear the
error code. Try bake or broil function. If the F or E code error repeats, turn off the
power to appliance, wait 5 minutes, and then repower appliance. Set clock with
correct time of day. Try bake or broil function again. If fault recurs, press the off key to
clear.
Areas of discoloration with
metallic sheen on cooktop
surface.
Mineral deposits from water and food. Remove using the recommended CookTop®
Cleaning Creme to the ceramic surface (on the web visit www.sears.com for replacement cooktop cleaner, item number 40079). Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or sponge
52
BEFORE YOU CALL
Soil not completely removed after
self clean.
Self clean was interrupted. Review instructions on “Self-Cleaning Operation” on
page 43. Excessive spills on oven bottom. Clean before starting self clean. Failure to
clean soil from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door gasket, and the
small area at the front center of the oven bottom. These areas are not in the selfcleaning area, but get hot enough to burn on residue. Clean these areas before
starting the self-cleaning cycle. Burned-on residue can be cleaned with a stiff nylon
brush and water or a nylon scrubber. Be careful not to damage the oven gasket.
If your oven is cooking poorly or the Self Clean is performing badly, perform the
following check: Boil, Press the Up button, and “HI” should appear on the display.
Place your hand near the handle on the oven door. Between the door and the control
panel, you should feel a rush of air on your hand. If so, your unit is functioning
properly, and you have had a power failure in your home. If no air stream is present,
call a service technician to replace your cooling fan.
Convection fan does not rotate.
Oven door is open. Convection fan will turn off if oven door is opened when convection is active. Close oven door.
Surface element is too hot or not
hot enough.
Incorrect surface control setting. Adjust power level setting.
Surface element does not heat or
does not heat evenly.
Be sure the correct surface control knob is turned on for element needed.
Scratches or abrasions on
cooktop surface.
Coarse particles such as salt or hardened soils between cooktop and utensils can
cause scratches. Be sure cooktop surface and bottoms of utensils are clean before
usage. Small scratches do not affect cooking and will become less visible with time.
Lightweight or warped pans used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or heavyweight cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped pans. Cookware materials and
weight of the material affect heating. Heavy and medium-weight pans heat evenly.
Because lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily.
Cleaning materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been used.
Apply the recommended CookTop® Cleaning Creme to the ceramic surface (on the
web visit www.sears.com for replacement cooktop cleaner, item number 40079). Buff
with a non-abrasive cloth or sponge. For more information see “Cooktop Maintenance” on page 47.
Cookware with rough bottom was used. Use smooth, flat-bottomed cookware.
Metal marks on the cooktop.
Sliding or scraping of metal utensils on cooktop surface. Do not slide metal utensils
on cooktop surface. Apply the recommended CookTop® Cleaning Creme to the
ceramic surface (on the web visit www.sears.com for replacement cooktop cleaner,
item number 40079). Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or sponge. For more information,
see “Cooktop Maintenance” on page 47.
Brown streaks or specks on
cooktop surface.
Boilovers are cooked onto surface. Use razor blade scraper to remove soil. For more
information see “Cooktop Maintenance” on page 47.
