messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.”
These words mean:
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
DANGER
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow
instructions.
WARNING
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
injury to persons, or damage when using the range, follow
basic precautions, including the following:
■ WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF
THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED BY
PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP DEVICES. TO CHECK
IF THE DEVICES ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE
RANGE FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET
SECURELY ATTACHED TO FLOOR OR WALL, AND
SLIDE RANGE BACK SO REAR RANGE FOOT IS
UNDER ANTI-TIP BRACKET.
■ CAUTION: Do not store items of interest to children in
cabinets above a range or on the backguard of a range –
children climbing on the range to reach items could be
seriously injured.
■ Proper Installation – Be sure the range is properly installed
and grounded by a qualified technician.
■ Never Use the Range for Warming or Heating the Room.
■ Do Not Leave Children Alone – Children should not be left
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.
■ Wear Proper Apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn while using the range.
■ User Servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of the
range unless specifically recommended in the manual. All
other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
■ Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should
not be stored in an oven or near surface units.
■ Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires – Smother fire or flame
or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
■ Use Only Dry Potholders – Moist or damp potholders on
hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let
potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel
or other bulky cloth.
■ DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR
UNITS – Surface units may be hot even though they are
dark in color. Areas near surface units may become hot
enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch,
or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface
units or areas near units until they have had sufficient time
to cool. Among those areas are the cooktop and surfaces
facing the cooktop.
■ Use Proper Pan Size – The range is equipped with one or
more surface units of different size. Select utensils having
flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating
element. The use of undersized utensils will expose a
portion of the heating element to direct contact and may
result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to
burner will also improve efficiency.
■ Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat
Settings – Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite.
■ Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place –
Absence of these pans or bowls during cooking may
subject wiring or components underneath to damage.
■
Protective Liners – Do not use aluminum foil to line surface
unit drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as suggested in
the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result
in a risk of electric shock, or fire.
■ Glazed Cooking Utensils – Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for range-top service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature.
■ Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend
Over Adjacent Surface Units – To reduce the risk of burns,
ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to
unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a
utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and
does not extend over adjacent surface units.
■ Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements – Heating
elements should never be immersed in water.
■ Do Not Cook on Broken Cooktop – If cooktop should
break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the
broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact
a qualified technician immediately.
■ Clean Cooktop With Caution – If a wet sponge or cloth is
used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to
avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
■ Use Care When Opening Door – Let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
■ Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers – Build-up of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.
■ Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.
■ Placement of Oven Racks – Always place oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved
while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating
element in oven.
■ DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR
SURFACES OF OVEN – Heating elements may be hot even
though they are dark in color. 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 heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until
they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the
appliance may become hot enough to cause burns – among
these surfaces are oven vent openings and surfaces near
these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors.
For self-cleaning ranges –
■ Do Not Clean Door Gasket – The door gasket is essential
for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage,
or move the gasket.
■ 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.
■ Clean Only Parts Listed in Manual.
■ Before Self-Cleaning the Oven – Remove broiler pan and
other utensils.
For units with ventilating hood –
■ Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently – Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.
■ When flambeing foods under the hood, turn the fan on.

COOKTOP USE
WARNING
■
Cooktops with an Even-Heat™ Ultra element provide the best
speed to boil and simmering performance for large pans. For
pans 10 inches and larger use the Even-Heat™ Ultra element at
the “Ultra Hi” setting for fastest boiling performance. For best
low heat performance on pans 10 inches and larger use the
Even-Heat™ Ultra element at the “Even Heat Simmer” setting.
■
For cooktops with two dual elements in the front positions, the
fastest boiling performance for pots 10 inches and larger will be
on the larger dual element with both elements on “Dual Hi.” For
best low heat performance on pans 10 inches and larger, use
the smaller dual element set at “Single Lo.”
■
For best melting performance with small pans, use the EvenHeat™ element.
■
Use flat-bottomed cookware for best heat conduction and
energy efficiency. Cookware with rounded, warped, ribbed or
dented bottoms could cause uneven heating and poor cooking
results.
■
Determine flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler
across the bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the ruler,
no space or light should be visible between it and the
cookware.
■
Cookware designed with slightly indented bottoms or small
expansion channels can be used.
■
Make sure the bottoms of pots and pans are clean and dry
before using them. Residue and water can leave deposits when
heated.
■
Avoid storing jars or cans above the cooktop. Dropping a heavy
or hard object onto the cooktop could crack the cooktop.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not leave a hot lid on the
cooktop. As the cooktop cools, air can become trapped
between the lid and the cooktop, and the ceramic glass could
break when the lid is removed.
■
For foods containing sugar in any form, clean up all spills and
soils as soon as possible. Allow the cooktop to cool down
slightly. Then, while wearing oven mitts, remove the spills using
a scraper while the surface is still warm. If sugary spills are
allowed to cool down, they can adhere to the cooktop and can
cause pitting and permanent marks.
■
To avoid scratches, do not slide cookware or bakeware across
the cooktop. Aluminum or copper bottoms and rough finishes
on cookware or bakeware could leave scratches or marks on
the cooktop.
■
Do not cook popcorn in prepackaged aluminum containers on
the cooktop. They could leave aluminum marks that cannot be
removed completely.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not allow objects that
could melt, such as plastic or aluminum foil, to touch any part
of the entire cooktop.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not use the cooktop as a
cutting board.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not cook foods directly on
the cooktop.
Fire Hazard
Turn off all controls when done cooking.
Failure to do so can result in death or fire.
The control knobs can be set to anywhere between HI and LO.
Push in and turn to setting.
REMEMBER: When range is in use, the entire cooktop area
may become hot.
Ceramic Glass
The surface cooking area will glow red when an element is on.
Some parts of the surface cooking area may not glow red when an
element is on. This is normal operation. It will also randomly cycle
off and back on again, even while on High, to keep the cooktop
from extreme temperatures.
It is normal for the surface of ceramic glass to appear to change
color when surface cooking areas are hot. As the glass cools, it will
return to its original color.
Clean the cooktop after each use to help avoid scratches, pitting,
abrasions and to condition the glass surface. Ceramic glass
cooktop cleaner and a cooktop scraper are also recommended for
stubborn soils. Do not use abrasive cleaners, cleaning pads or
harsh chemicals for cleaning. The Cooktop Care Kit Part Number
31605 contains all of the items needed to clean and condition your
ceramic glass cooktop. Refer to the “Range Care” section for
additional information.
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the cooktop surface
and to make soils easier to remove, clean the cooktop after each
use to remove all soils.

To Use:
1. To turn on, press WARM ZONE ON and then START.
2. To turn off, press WARM ZONE OFF.
Cookware
IMPORTANT: Do not leave empty cookware on a hot surface
cooking area, element or surface burner.
Ideal cookware should have a flat bottom, straight sides and a wellfitting lid, and the material should be of medium-to-heavy thickness.
Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop. Aluminum and copper
may be used as a core or base in cookware. However, when used
as a base they can leave permanent marks on the surfaces.
Cookware material is a factor in how quickly and evenly heat is
transferred, which affects cooking results. A nonstick finish has the
same characteristics as its base material. For example, aluminum
cookware with a nonstick finish will take on the properties of
aluminum.
Cookware with nonstick surfaces should not be used under the
broiler.
Check for flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler across the
bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the ruler, no space or
light should be visible between it and the cookware.

Oven Vent
The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven, and
should not be blocked or covered. Blocking or covering the oven
vent will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking and cleaning
results. Do not set plastics, paper or other items that could melt or
burn near the oven vent.
Baking and Roasting
Temperature Management System
Preheating
The oven control regulates the oven heat levels during preheat and
bake to maintain a precise temperature range for optimal cooking
results. The bake and broil elements or burners cycle on and off in
intervals. On convection range models, the fan and convection
element may run while preheating and may be cycled on and off for
short intervals during Bake to provide the best results. This feature
is automatically activated when the oven is in use.
Before baking and roasting, position racks according to
“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. When roasting, it is not
necessary to wait for the oven preheat cycle to end before putting
food in unless it is recommended in the recipe.
When Start is pressed, the oven will begin preheating. Once 100ºF
(38ºC) is reached, the display temperature will increase as the
actual temperature of the oven increases. When the preheat
temperature is reached, a tone will sound, and the selected
temperature will appear on the display. The time necessary to
preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C) is approximately 15 minutes,
depending on the model. Factors that have an impact on preheat
times are: room temperature, starting oven temperature, and the
number of oven racks. Unused oven racks can be removed prior to
preheating your oven to reduce preheat time.
Broiling
Leave the door open 6" (15 cm) at the broil stop position to ensure
proper broiling temperature. Preheat the oven for 5 minutes before
putting food in unless recommended otherwise in the recipe.
Position food on grid in a broiler pan, then place it in the center of
the oven rack.
NOTE: Odors and smoke are normal the first few times the oven is
used or if the oven is heavily soiled.
Changing the temperature when broiling allows more precise
control when cooking. The lower the broil setting, the slower the
cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish
and poultry may cook better at lower broil settings. Use racks 6 or
7 for broiling. Refer to the “Positioning Racks and Bakeware”
section for more information.
On lower settings, the broil element will cycle on and off to maintain
the proper temperature.
■ For best results, use a broiler pan and grid. It is designed to
drain juices and help avoid spatter and smoke.
If you would like to purchase a broiler pan, one may be ordered.
Please refer to the “Accessories” section for more information.
Convection Cooking
In a convection oven, the fan-circulated hot air continually
distributes heat more evenly than the natural movement of air in a
standard thermal oven. This movement of hot air helps maintain a
consistent temperature throughout the oven, cooking foods more
evenly, crisping surfaces while sealing in moisture and yielding
crustier breads.
During convection cooking, the bake, broil and convection (true
convection only) elements and the convection fan cycle on and off
in intervals to maintain the oven temperature, while the fan
circulates the hot air.
If the oven door is opened during convection cooking, the fan will
turn off immediately. It will come back on when the oven door is
closed.
NOTE: The oven door must be closed for convection broiling.
12
Position the racks according to the “Positioning Racks and
Bakeware” section before starting convection cooking.
With convection cooking, most foods can be cooked at a lower
temperature or at a shorter time. These adjustments can be made
using the following chart or by using the EasyConvect™
Conversion feature on your range.

RANGE CARE
Clean Cycle
6. Remove the residual water and loosened soils with a sponge or
cloth immediately after the Clean cycle is complete. Much of
the initial 2 cups (16 oz [500 mL]) of water will remain in the
oven after the cycle is completed. If additional soils remain,
leave a small amount of water in the oven bottom to assist with
the cleaning.
AquaLift™ Technology is an innovative cleaning solution that
utilizes heat and water to release baked-on spills from the oven in
less than 1 hour. This new cleaning technology is a low-heat, odorfree alternative to traditional self-cleaning options.
Allow the oven to cool to room temperature before using the Clean
cycle. If your oven cavity is above 200°F (93°C), “OVEN COOLING”
will appear in the display, and the Clean cycle will not be activated
until the oven cavity cools down.
To Clean:
1. Remove all racks and accessories from the oven cavity and
wipe excess soil. Use a plastic scraper to remove easilyremoved soils.
7. If any soils remain, remove them with a non-scratch scrubbing
sponge or plastic scraper. Additional Clean cycles may be run
to help remove the stubborn soils.
IMPORTANT: Do not use oven cleaners. The use of chemicals,
including commercial oven cleaners or metal scouring pads,
may cause permanent damage to the porcelain surface of the
oven interior.
NOTES:
2. Pour 2 cups (16 oz [500 mL]) of distilled or filtered water onto
the bottom of the empty oven and close the oven door.
IMPORTANT: Do not use chemicals or other additives with the
water. Do not open the oven door during the Clean cycle. The

leave mineral deposits on the oven bottom.
■
Before removing the residual water and loosened soils at the
end of the Clean cycle, insert a cloth or paper towel between
the lower edge of the oven door and the front frame to keep
water from spilling onto the front of the range and the floor.
■
Soil baked on through several cooking cycles will be more
difficult to remove with the Clean cycle.
■
Nonabrasive scrub sponges or eraser style cleaning pads
(without cleaners) can be effective for cleaning the oven cavity
walls, oven door and oven bottom for difficult soils. For best
results, moisten the pads and sponges before use.
■
Run an additional Clean cycle for stubborn soils.
