Read before operating your cooktop
All appliances -- regardless of the manufacturer -- have the
potential through improper or careless use to create safety problems. Therefore the following safety precautions should be
1, Be sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded
by a qualified technician.
2, Never use your appliance for warming or heating the room.
3. Children should not be left alone or unattended in area
where appliance is in use. They should never be allowed
to sit or stand on any part of the appliance.
4, Wear proper apparel. Loose-fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn while using the appliance.
5. Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless
in this manual. All other
servicing should be referred to an authorized Jenn-Air
Service Contractor.
6. Flammable materials should not be stored near surface
7. Do not use water on grease fires. Smother fire or flame
or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
8. 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.
9. Use proper pan size. Many appliances are equipped with
one or more surface units of different size. Select cookware
having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit
heating element. The use of undersized cookware will
expose a portion of the heating element to direct contact
and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship
of cookware to heating element will also improve efficiency
and performance.
10. Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings.
Boil over causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may
11. On conventional element cooktops make sure that drip
pans are in place. Absence of these pans during cooking
may subject wiring or components underneath to damage.
12. Do not use aluminum foil to line surface unit drip pans
or grill basin. Installation of these liners may result in an
electric shock or fire hazard.
13. Glazed cookware -- only certain types of glass, glassceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed cookware
are suitable for cooktop surface without breaking due to
the sudden change in temperature. Use only such
cookware as you know has been approved for this purpose.
14. Cookware handles should be turned inward and not extend
over adjacent surface heating elements to avoid burns,
ignition of flammable materials and spillage due to unintentional contact with the cookware.
15. Do not soak or immerse removable heating elements in
16. CAUTION -- Do not store items of interest to children
in cabinets above cooktop--children
climbing on the cooktop to reach items could be seriously injured.
17. Do not touch surface units or areas near units. Surface
units or heating elements 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
these areas until they have had sufficient time to cool.
Other surfaces may become hot enough to cause burns
-- among these surfaces is the cooktop.
18. Do not cook on glass-ceramic cooking surface if the cooktop is broken. Cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a shock hazard.
Contact an authorized Jenn-Air Service Contractor.
19. Clean glass-ceramic cooktops with caution. If wet sponge
or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be
careful to avoid steam burns. Some cleansers can produce
noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
20. Do not operate with damaged cooking element after any
product malfunction until proper repair has been made.
21. Keep all switches "OFF" when unit is not in use.

The built-in ventilation system removes cooking vapors, odors and smoke from foods
prepared on the cooktop, grill and grill accessories.
Regular use of this system will insure a more comfortable and less humid kitchen
which is free of heavy cooking odors and fumes that normally create a frequent
need for cleaning and redecorating.
The fan control is located normally at the rear
of the control panel. To operate the ventilation
system manually, turn the fan control knob
clockwise. The variable speed fan can be
operated at an infinite number of settings when
using the cooktop cartridges or the griddle.
The ventilation system will operate automatically when the grill element is
in use. NOTE: During grilling, the fan speed is automatically set for the HI
setting and cannot be varied.
Besides using the ventilation system to remove cooking vapors and fumes,
it can be used to cool baked pies, cakes or hot pans. To cool an item, set
it on the air grille and turn on the fan. The air being pulled over the item
will quickly cool it. Be careful not to cover the entire air grille.
The fan can be used to remove strong odors from the kitchen as when chopping
onions near the fan.
._,- Gra.._: The air grille lifts off easily. Wipe clean or wash in sink with mild
household detergents. May be cleaned in dishwasher.
F_._.tct,-: Turn off ventilation system before
removing. The filter is a permanent type and
should be cleaned when soiled. Clean in sine
with warm water and liquid dishwashing
detergent or in dishwasher.
WITHOUT FILTER. Filter should always be
placed at an angle. As you face the front of the
cooktop, the bottom of the filter should rest on
the ledge on the left side. The top of the filter
should rest against the right side. There are also
ledges on the front and rear sides for the filter
to rest. (NOTE: If filter is flat against the fan wall,
ventilation effectiveness is reduced.)
';Ten:__:__.t'.c:LCK_n_.P.c:": This area, which houses the filter, should be cleaned
in the event of spills or whenever it becomes coated with a film of grease. May
be cleaned with paper towel, damp cloth, or sponge and mild household detergent
or cleanser. (Note: for easier cleaning, remove the basin pans.)
The variable heat controls for the cooktop cartridges and grill element provide flexibility in heat setting selection.
To Set Controls
• Since the controls are a push-turn type, they must be pushed
down before turning. To set (from the OFF position), push down
on control knob and turn in either direction to desired heat setting.
• When control is in any position, other than OFF, it may be turned
in any directJon without pushing down.
• Control Panel A: A red indicator light will glow when a surface
heating element is ON. There is a light for each control.
• Control Panel B: When control knob is in the OFF position, the
only setting visible is OFF. When control knob is turned ON,
all other control settingswill be shown.The ring around control
knob will glow when surface heating element is ON.

Cooktop cartridges options include conventional coil, halogen, radiant, or solid element.
1. If the grill grates, element, and/or grill liner pans are in place, remove before
installing a cooktop cartridge. Clean basin pan of any grease accumulation. (See
page 12 for cleaning recommendations.)
2. To install any of the optional cooktop cartridges, be sure control knobs are
turned OFF, basin pan is in place, and air grille is removed.
3. Position the cartridge terminal plug towards the terminal receptacle. Slide the
cartridge towards the receptacle until the cartridge terminal plug is completely
engaged. Lower the opposite side of the cartridge into the cooktop until it is
flush with the surface.
4. Add the air grille. Your cooktop is now ready to use.
",. Control knobs must be in the OFF position and the cartridge should be cool.
2. Remove the air grille.
,_. Lift the cartridge side next to the ventilation chamber until the top of the cartridge
is about 3 inches above the cooktop. Lifting the cartridge too high while still
engaged in the receptacle could damage the terminal plug.
_,. To disengage terminal, hold cartridge by the ventilation chamber side and slide
away from the terminal receptacle. Lift out when fully unplugged.
5 Do not stack cartridges where they may fall or be damaged. Never store other
materials on top of a glass-ceramic cartridge since this could damage or mar
the surface.
NOTE: Remember to replace the air grille before using the ventilation system.
Canning should be done on the conventional coil cartridge only. Canning element
accessory, Model A145, makes it possible to use large oversized canners with the
conventional coil cartridge.
For additional information, refer to use and care manual packaged with your cartridge.

To Install
of two black grill grates,
a grill element
and a grill
1. Before installing grill components, be certain surface controls are in the OFF position.
2. Place the grill liner pan into an empty basin pan with the opening next to the terminal
block. The grill liner pan must be used since it supports the grill element.
3. Position the grill element with the terminal plug towards the terminal receptacle. Slide
the element towards the receptacle until the terminal plug is completely engaged.
The grill element should rest flat on the side ledges of the grill liner pan.
4. Place the black grill grates on the top of the basin pan.
To Remove
1. Remove grill components once they are cool. Be sure control switches are in the
OFF position.
2. To remove grill element, lift the side at the ventilation chamber until the top of the
element is about 1/2 inch above the cooktop. (NOTE: Lifting the element too high
while still engaged in the receptacle could damage the terminal plug.) To disengage
terminal, slide away from the terminal receptacle. Lift out when fully unplugged.
1. Grill covers can be used to cover the grill, when not in use, or an empty basin pan.
2. To remove the grill covers, push down on front or rear side. The opposite s/de will
lift slightly for easy removal.
• Before the first use, wash your new grill grates in hot
dry. Then "season" the surface by wiping on a thin coating
excess oil by wiping again with another paper towel.

detergent may remove
• Seasoning prior to each use is NOT necessary. However anytime a sugar-based
marinade (for example, barbecue sauce) is going to be used, the grates should
be "seasoned" prior to preheating.
• Preheat the grill on HI for 5 minutes. Preheating improves the flavor and
appearance of meats and quickly sears the meat to help retain the juices. The
heating element should glow a bright cherry red.
• Use nonmetallic
spatulas or utensils to prevent damaging
the grill grate finish.
• Excessive amounts of fat should be trimmed from meats. Only a normal amount
is necessary to produce the smoke needed for that smoked, "outdoor" flavor.
Excessive fat can create cleaning and flame-up problems.
• Allowing excessive amounts of grease or drippings to constantly flame voids
the warranty on the grill grates. Excessive flare-ups indicate that either the grill
interior needs to be cleaned or that excessive amounts of fat are in the meat
or the meat was not properly trimmed.
• Grease drippings will occasionally
ignite to produce harmless puffs of flame
for a second or two. This is a normal part of the cooking process.
1. Turn on FAN manually.
2. Immediately turn grill heat control switch to OFF position.
3. Remove meat from grill.
Do not use aluminum foil inside the grill area.
Do not use charcoal or wood chips in the grill area,
Do not allow grill liner pan to become overloaded with grease. Clean frequently.
Do not cover grates completely with meat. Leave air space between each steak, etc.
to allow proper ventilation as well as prevent flame-ups.
Preheat gritl on Hi, 5 minutes, for best flavor.

NOTE: This chart is a suggested guide. Cooking times and control settings are approximate
due to variations in meats, control switches, and voltage.
With your Jenn-Air grill and accessories, literally any food you've considered "at
its best" when prepared outdoors can now be prepared indoors with less fuss and
great flavor.
The following suggestions are good rules to follow and will increase your enjoyment
of the equipment.
• Be sure to follow directions on page 9 for using the grill.
• Suggested cooking times and control settings are approximate due to variations
in meats and electrical voltage. Experience will quickly indicate cooking times
as well as which settingswork best.
• Use the Energy-Saver grill element for grilling small amounts of food on half
of the grill or for keeping cooked foods warm or preparing food requiring
different heat control settings.
• For best results, buy top grade meat. Meat that is at least 3/4-inch will grill
better than thinner cuts.
• Score fat on edges of steak, but do not cut into meat, to prevent curling while
• For the attractive "branded" look on steaks, be sure grill is preheated. Allow
one side of meat to cook to desired doneness, or until juices appear on the
top surface,before turning.Turn steaksand hamburgersjust once. Manipulating
food causes lossof juices.
• When basting meats or applying sauces to foods, remember that excessive
amounts wind up inside your gdll and do not improve the food flavor. Apply
sauces during the last 15 to 20 minutes of cooking time unless recipe specifies
otherwise. Sugar-based sauces, excessively used, will caramelize on the grill
grates and grill liner pan and will create a cleaning chore.
• There are many meat marinades which will help tenderize less expensive cuts
of meat for cooking on the grill.
• Certain foods, such as poultry and non-oily fish, may need some extra fat.
Brush with oil or melted butter occasionally while grilling.
• Use tongs with long handles or spatulas for turning meats. Do not use forks
as these pierce the meat, allowing juices to be lost.
• To help retain meat juices, saltafter turning meat or after cooking is completed.
¢ Should grilled foods be prepared and ready before you're ready to serve, turn
heat control to a low setting and cover meat with a single sheet of foil. Food
will continue to cook.
Be sure the grill is cool and control knobs are in the OFF position.

Jenn-Air's ventilation system is designed to capture both cooking fumes and smoke
from any place on the grill surface. If the system does not, these are some ducting
installation situations to check:
• 6" diameter round or 31/4'' x 10" rectangular ducting should be used. Note: 5"
diameter round ducting may be used for venting straight out the back of the
cooktop and directly through the wall for 10' or less.
• No more than three 90 ° elbows should be used. Distance between elbows should
be at least 18".
• Recommended
Jenn-Air wall cap should be used. Make sure damper moves
freely when ventilation system is operating.
• There should be a minimum clearance of 6" for cooktop installed near a side
If there is not an obvious improper installation, there may be a concealed problem
such as a pinched joint, obstruction
in the pipe, etc. Installation is the responsibility
of the installer and questions should be addressed first by the installer. The installer
should very carefully check the ducting installation instructions.
