IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR OVEN
• Use care when opening oven door , lower oven
door or warmer drawer (if equipped)—Stand to the
side of the range when opening the door of a hot oven.
Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or replace
food in the oven.
• Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. The oven vent
is located under the left rear surface element if your
model is equipped with coil elements. The oven vent is
located below the backguard for models equipped with
ceramic-glass cook tops. Touching the surfaces in this
area when the oven is operating may cause severe
burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items
on or near the oven vent. These items could melt or
ignite.
• Placement of interior oven racks. Always place oven
racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack must
be moved while oven is hot use extreme caution. Use
potholders and grasp the rack with both hands to
reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot heating
elements in the oven. Remove all utensils from the rack
before moving.
• Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The
broiler pan and its insert allow dripping fat to drain and
be kept away from the high heat of the broiler. Do not
cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil. Exposed
fat and grease could ignite.
• 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.
FOR CERAMIC-GLASS COOK TOP MODELS
• Do not cook on broken cook top—If cook top should
break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate
the broken cook top and create a risk of electric shock.
Contact a qualified technician immediately.
• Clean cook top with caution—If a wet sponge or cloth
is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to
avoid a steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING
YOUR 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.
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of
grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention
to the area around each surface element. Do not allow
grease to accumulate.
• Kitchen cleaners and aerosols—Always follow the
manufacturer’s recommended directions for use.
Be aware that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols
may ignite causing damage and injury.
• Clean ventilating hoods frequently—Grease should
not be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning hoods.
SELF-CLEANING OVENS
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts
listed in this Use & Care Manual. Before self-cleaning
the oven, remove the broiler pan and any utensils or
foods from the oven.
• 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.
• 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.
• The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement
Act requires the Governor of California to publish a list of
substances known to the state to cause cancer, birth
defects or other reproductive harm, and requires
businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such
substances.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR COOKTOP
• Know which keypad controls each surface cooking zone.
Place a pan with food on the cooking zone before turning
it on, and turn the cooking zone off before removing the
pan.
• Use proper pan size —This appliance is equipped with
induction cooking zones of different sizes. Select utensils
specifically manufactured and approved for induction
cooking that have flat bottoms that match the induction
cooking zone size. Proper relationship of utensil to
cooking zone will also improve efficiency.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
For models factory-equipped with a power cord:
For personal safety, this appliance must be properly
grounded. For maximum safety, the power cord must be
plugged into an electrical outlet that is correctly polarized
and properly grounded. If a 2-prong wall receptacle is the
only available outlet, it is the personal responsibility of the
consumer to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician.
• Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend
over adjacent cooking zones—To reduce the risk of
burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due
to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of the
utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward,
and does not extend over adjacent cooking zones.
• Never leave surface cooking zones unattended —
Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may
ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry could be damaged.
WARNING
• Avoid fire hazard or electrical shock. Do not use an
adapter plug, an extension cord, or remove grounding
prong from electrical power cord. Failure to follow this
warning can cause serious injury, fire or death.
• This appliance may be equipped with a 3-prong
grounding plug. For your protection against shock
hazard, it should be plugged directly into a properly
grounded receptacle. Do not cut or remove the
grounding prong from this plug
See the INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS packaged with this
appliance for complete installation and grounding
instructions.

BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Benefits of induction surface cooking
Fast and efficient - The induction cooking zones heat
faster while using less energy. Induction power levels are
quick to boil and efficient when simmering.
A cooler cooktop - A unique feature of the induction
cooking zones is whether turned on or off, the cooking
zones remain cooler than radiant type elements. Virtually
no wasted heat is produced since the heat begins with the
presence of cookware.
Easy cleanups - The cooler cooking zones make cleanup
easier. Spills resist sticking or burning so they wipe up
easily.
Magnetic detector - The cooking zone has a sensor that
automatically detects whether cookware is magnetic. This
will reduce accidental “turn-ons.”
Pan size detection - The pan size recognition sensor
automatically detects and adapts the induction cooking
zones to the pan sizes in use for consistent, more even
cooking.
Induction cookware
IMPORTANT
Before using the induction cooking zones, be sure to
carefully read and follow these cookware
recommendations and the instructions in the pan
sensing section.
When purchasing pans for use on the induction cooktop,
look for cookware specifically identified by the manufacturer
as induction ready, induction capable, or a similar
statement by the manufacturer that the cookware is
specifically designed for induction cooking.
The cooking zones will not activate if the cookware is not
constructed with a base magnetic material. To check if the
cookware base material is suitable, use a magnet to test
(See Fig. 1). If a magnet sticks to the bottom of the
cookware, the material type is correct.
More responsive - The induction cooking zones are more
responsive than their electric or gas counterparts because
only the pan heats. This type of cooking heats easier and
will be just as responsive when reducing to a simmer.
Fig. 1
About the induction cooktop
Your cooktop is equipped with four differently-sized
induction cooking zones and a radiant heat warmer zone.
Left rear
cooking zone
Left front
cooking zone
Warmer zone
Right rear
cooking zone
Right front
cooking zone
Induction cooking directly heats the pan; heating will only
begin when cookware is properly placed on the cooking
zones.
For the best possible surface cooking results, it is
recommended to only use high quality heavy gauge
cookware on the induction cooking zones.
Be sure to follow all the manufacturer’s recommendations
when using cookware made for induction cooking.
Induction cookware types
The most common induction cookware types available are:
Stainless steel - Generally, excellent for induction
cooking. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
Cast iron - Good for induction cooking. Cooks evenly. Do
not slide cast iron cookware on cooktop. Cast iron cookware
with a rough surface will scratch ceramic cooktop.
Porcelain-enamel on ferrous metal - Heating
characteristics will vary depending on quality of base
material. Porcelain-enamel coating must be smooth to avoid
scratching ceramic cooktop.
IMPORTANT
Not all stainless steel cookware is magnetic; stainless
steel is not always suitable for induction cooking.
7
BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
When using the cooking zones
Moving cookware on smoothtop
• Be sure to use cooktop cookware made with a magnetic
base material.
It is recommended to always use heavier gauge high quality
cookware on the cooking zones. Even high quality cookware
can still scratch the cooktop surface. Do not slide cookware
on the ceramic cooktop.
• Use quality cooktop cookware with heavier bottoms for
better heat distribution, allowing for more even cooking
results.
• Check that cookware bottom rests level on cooktop
surface. Cookware should have flat bottoms that make
good contact with the entire induction cooking zone area.
Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of
the cookware (See Fig. 1).
• Be sure cookware is properly balanced and does not tilt
from a heavy handle.
IMPORTANT
• Always lift cookware before moving on the ceramic
glass smoothtop.
• Any cookware that has rough or dirty bottoms can
mark and scratch the ceramic glass surface. Always
start with clean cookware.
• Be sure that the pan size matches the amount of food to
be prepared. The size and type of cookware used will
influence the setting needed for best cooking results.
• Never let cookware boil dry. This may cause permanent
damage such as breakage, fusion, or marring that can
affect the cooktop.
• Use cookware that meets the minimum and maximum
cookware size requirements for each cooking zone.
Fig. 2
Fig. 1
Sliding any type of cookware over the surface will scratch
the cooktop over time. Scratches will make cleaning the
ceramic cooktop difficult and degrade the appearance of the
cooktop.
For more detailed information about the cooktop see
“Cooktop maintenance” and “Cooktop cleaning” in the Care
& Cleaning section.
8
BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Hot cookware and residual heat
CAUTION
• Unlike radiant surface elements, the cooking zones
will not glow red when they are hot. The glass
surface may be hot from residual heat transferred
from the cookware and burns may occur.
• Do not touch hot cookware or pans directly
with hands. Always use oven mitts or pot holders to
protect hands from burns.
The type and size of cookware, cooking duration, the
number of cooking zones in use and their power level
settings are all factors that will affect the amount of heat
that will spread beyond the cooking zones.
The induction cooking zones and areas surrounding the
cooking zones may become hot enough to cause burns.
Be sure to read all cautions.
Home Canning
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) website 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 (see
Cookware Recommendations section).
• Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no
ridges that radiate from the bottom center when home
canning using a range with a ceramic glass cooktop.
• Make sure the diameter of the canner does not
exceed 1 inch beyond the cooking zone markings.
It is recommended to use smaller diameter canners on
ranges with ceramic glass or open coil electric cooktops.
• Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more
quickly.
• Use the highest heat setting when first bringing the water
to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest
possible setting to maintain that boil.
IMPORTANT
NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over 2 different
surface cooking zones heating at the same time. This will
cause uneven heating results and could cause the
ceramic cooktop to fracture.

INDUCTION COOKING ZONES
Pan sensing
The cooking zone sensors located below the cooktop
surface require that certain cookware conditions are met
before the induction cooking zones can operate.
The cooking zone display windows may display a pan
sensing error message. If a cooking zone is activated and
no cookware is detected, the affected induction cooking
zone display window will flash with the last power level
request setting (See Fig. 1). If the cookware does not meet
the correct conditions, the cooking zones may not heat.
Correct
Incorrect
• Cookware base material has
good magnetic characteristics.
• Cookware base material is
non-magnetic.
• Cookware centered correctly
on cooking zone.
• Cookware not centered on
cooking zone.
• Flat pan bottom and straight
sides.
• Curved or warped pan bottoms
or sides.
• Pan size meets or exceeds
the recommended minimum
size for cooking zone.
• Pan does not meet the minimum
size required (too small) for
cooking zone.
• Pan rests completely and is
level on the cooktop
surface.
• Pan bottom rests on cooktop

The range backguard provides a digital window for each of
the cooking zones located on the cooktop. Power levels and
messages are easily monitored and controlled using the
window displays in combination with the corresponding
control knobs.
Available power level settings
The cooktop control (Fig. 1) will display power levels
ranging from Pb (power boost, Fig. 2), Hi (Fig. 3) to Lo
(Fig. 4).
The settings between 9.5 (Fig. 5) and 1.5 (Fig. 7) decrease
and increase in 0.5 increments.
Fig. 1
Use the “Suggested cooking zone power level settings
table” provided in Setting Surface Controls section to
determine the correct power level setting for the type of
food you are preparing.
Pb (Power Boost) power level
When setting an induction cooking zone for Hi, the display
will initially show Pb (Power Boost) power level for up to 10
minutes (See Fig. 1). After 10 minutes the cooking zone will
automatically return to the Hi (Fig. 3) setting. The Pb
setting is only available immediately after activating a
cooking zone by turning the knob to Hi.
Fig. 2

needed for best surface cooking results.
• The size and type of utensil used, and the amount and
type of food being cooked will influence the setting
needed for best cooking results.

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
CAUTION
• Unlike radiant surface elements, the induction
cooking zones will not glow red when they are hot.
The glass surface may be hot from residual heat
transferred from the cookware and burns may occur.
• Do not touch hot cookware or pans directly with
hands. Always use oven mitts or pot holders to protect
hands from burns.
• The cooking zones may appear to have cooled after
they have been turned OFF. The glass surface may
still be hot from residual heat and burns may occur if
the cooktop is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
• Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt
and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic
wrappings on the cooktop when it is in use. These
items could melt or ignite if placed too close to hot
cookware.
Cooktop operational noises
The electronic processes involved with induction cooking
may create some background noises. You may hear a slight
“buzzing” sound when cooking on the cooktop.
These noises are part of the induction cooking process are
considered normal.
Some cookware will “buzz” depending on the construction
or base material. The “buzz” may be more noticeable if the
contents of the pan are cold. As the pan heats up, the noise
will decrease. The noise will also decrease if the power
level setting is reduced.
NOTE
When using the induction cooktop, operational noises
are more noticeable while cooking at the “Pb” level. Very
loud noises are not part of normal induction cooking.
Oven vent location
IMPORTANT
• The HE (hot element) message will appear in the
display windows once a heating element or cooking
zone is turned OFF and will remain ON until the
heating surface area or areas have cooled sufficiently.
The oven vent is located under the left side of the
control panel (See Fig. 1). When the oven is on, warm
air passes through this vent. This venting is necessary for
proper air circulation in the oven and good baking results.
Do not block the oven vent.
oven vent location
• Do not allow aluminum foil, or ANY material that
can melt to make contact with the ceramic glass
cooktop. If these items melt on the cooktop they may
damage the ceramic cooktop.
• If the cookware is moved from the center of any active
induction cooking zone, the pan sensor will detect the
situation and the cookware will no longer heat. The
affected cooking zone display window will flash until
the cookware is moved back to center of cooking zone.
If the cookware is placed back properly centered on
the cooking zone, the zone will resume heating. The
cooking zone will remember the power level setting for
up to 3 minutes before the cooking zone will
automatically shut OFF.

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Warmer zone
The purpose of the warmer zone is to
keep foods at serving temperature,
such as: vegetables, gravies,
casseroles, soups, stews, breads,
pastries and oven-safe dinner plates.
Always start with hot food. Do not heat cold food on the
warmer zone. All food placed on the warmer 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 remove. Use only
dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven
and cooktop use.
Warmer zone temperature selection
If a particular food is not listed (See Fig 2), start with the
medium heat level and adjust as needed. Most foods can be
kept at serving temperatures by using the medium heat
level.
To operate warmer zone:
Step
1. Place cookware on the warmer zone.
2. Push in and turn the warmer zone’s control knob to the
desired setting, indicated by the semi-circle line around
the knob. You may turn the knob either way (left or right)
to activate the burner. (The warmer zone indicator light
will turn on).
3. When finished, turn the control knob to the OFF position.
CAUTION
• Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled
after they have been turned off. The glass surface
may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass
surface is touched before it has cooled.
• Do not place flammable items such as plastic 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.
• The warmer zone is radiant heat, but it will not glow
red when it is hot.To avoid possible burns always use
potholders or oven mitts when moving food to and from
the warmer zone as cookware and plates will be
hot.

The flat oven rack or flat handle oven rack (some
models) may be used for most cooking needs.
The half rack (some models) design comes with a
removable section that allows for taller cooking utensils.
The offset oven rack (some models) is designed to place
the base of the rack about 1/2 of a rack position lower than
normal. This rack design provides several additional
possible positions between the standard positions.
To maximize oven cooking space place the bottom oven
rack (some models) in the lowest rack position for baking
or roasting large cuts of meat.
The Effortless™ Oven Rack (some models) is described
in the “Effortless™ Oven Rack system” section.
16
For best baking results allow at least 2 inches (5 cm)
around the cookware for proper air circulation and be sure
pans and cookware do not touch each other, the oven door,
sides or back of the oven cavity. Hot air must be able to
circulate around the pans and cookware in the oven for
even heat to reach around the food.
CAUTION
Always use oven mitts when using the oven. When
using the appliance, oven racks and cooktop will become
very hot which can cause burns.
IMPORTANT
Only the Effortless™ Oven Rack should be used in
oven rack position 2. Placing any other rack in rack
position 2 will prevent the oven door from fully closing.
BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Effortless™ Oven Rack system
Some models are equipped with a special oven rack system
that automatically extends the oven rack to assist in access
to your food items. This rack extends when the oven door is
opened or closed.
To assemble the Effortless™ Oven Rack system:
1. Locate all required parts. You will need the supplied
oven rack (Effortless™ Oven Rack is a flat rack with a
special dark coating on the left and right rack
sides) and the 2 supplied chrome connector arms.
2. Open the oven door. Be sure the oven is completely
cool before proceeding.
3. Place the oven rack in positions 2, 3 or 4 only (see
previous page to verify positions). Be sure the rack
connector brackets are at the rear of the range and
pointing towards oven bottom (See Fig. 2).
4. Assemble one connector arm at a time. With the oven
door open and the oven rack in place, install one end of
the connector arm to the hole in the door connector
bracket (Fig. 1) and the other end in the hole in the
rack connector bracket (Fig. 2 and as in Fig. 3). The
oven rack may need to be adjusted in or out in the rack
position to match the length of the connector arm.
5. While holding the connector arm in place, twist the
connector arm so the ends of the connector arm point
upwards (See Figs. 4 & 5). The connector arm should
now be locked into position.
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the other connector arm.
IMPORTANT
• Only the Effortless™ Oven Rack system should
be used in oven rack position 2. Placing ANY other
rack in oven rack position 2 will prevent the oven door
from fully closing and may damage the oven door, oven
cavity or the door connector brackets.
• If the rack system is not assembled with the connector
arms the Effortless™ Oven rack may be used in oven
rack positions 2 thru 6. Do not attempt to use the
Effortless™ Oven rack in rack position 1.

Convection Cooking
Convect uses a fan to circulate heat inside the oven.
Improved heat distribution allows for fast, even cooking and
browning. It gives better baking results when using two
racks at the same time.

Suggestions for convect baking
1. Preheat the oven when baking foods such as cookies,
biscuits and breads.
2. Reduce oven temperature 25°F/14ºC from recipe’s
listed oven temperature. Follow the minimum
recommended cook time.
3. When using a single oven rack, position rack so
cookware is in the middle of the oven.

Convect roast
Suggestion for convect roast
1. Preheating is not necessary when roasting foods using
convect roast.
2. Since convect roast cooks food faster, reduce the
cook time by 25% from the recommended cook time of
your recipe (check the food at this time). If necessary,
increase cook time until the desired doneness is
obtained.
3. Do not cover foods when dry roasting - this will prevent
the meat from browning properly.

Convect broil
Setting convect convert
Use the convect broil feature to cook thicker cuts of meats
that require direct exposure to radiant heat and the
convection fan for optimum browing results.
The convect convert feature allows you to convert any
baking recipe using the convect (convection) feature. The
control uses the normal recipe settings and adjusts to a
lower temperature for convection baking. Convect convert
can only be set with the convect bake feature.
Suggestions for convect broil:
1. When using a broil pan, carefully follow all
recommended instructions for placing the oven racks as
provided in the “Broil” section in this Use & Care Guide.
2. Since convect broil cooks food faster, reduce the cook
time by 25% from the recommended cook time of your
recipe (check the food at this time). If necessary,
increase cook time until the desired doneness is
obtained.
To set convect using default oven set temperature
of 350°F and adding the convect convert:
Step
Press

SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Probe
Use the probe for best results when cooking foods such as
roasts, hams or poultry. The probe also works well with
foods such as meat loaf and casseroles.
For some food types, especially poultry and roasts, using a
probe to check the internal temperature is the safest
possible method to ensure properly cooked food.
The probe feature, when set correctly, will alert when the
internal food temperature reaches the desired "target"
temperature.
When active, the probe will display the internal food
temperature, eliminating the need for any guesswork.
handle
Proper probe placement in food:
• Insert the probe so that the tip is centered in the thickest
part of the food (see Fig. 2). For best results, do not
allow the probe temperature sensor to contact bone, fat,
gristle, or cookware.
• For bone-in ham or lamb, insert the probe into the center
of lowest large muscle or joint. For dishes such as meat
loaf or casseroles, insert the probe into center of food.
When cooking fish, insert meat probe just above the gill.
• For whole poultry or turkey, insert the probe sensor into
the thickest part of inner thigh, just below the leg (See
Fig. 3).

SELF-CLEANING
Self-cleaning
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.
Your oven allows you to set 3 different self-cleaning cycle
durations. A 3-hour cleaning time is best used for normal
cleaning; 2-hour time for light soils and a 4-hour time
option for heavier burnt-on soils.
IMPORTANT
Adhere to the following self-clean precautions:
• DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective
coatings in or around any part of the oven interior.
•
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The woven
material of the oven door gasket is essential for a
good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage
or remove the gasket.
•
DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the oven door
gasket. Doing so could cause damage (See Fig. 1).
•
Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils
and ANY ALUMINUM FOIL. These items cannot
withstand high cleaning temperatures and will
melt.
•
Completely remove ALL OVEN RACKS and ANY
ACCESSORIES. If the oven racks are not
removed they will lose their special coating
properties and no longer slide in and out of the
oven cavity easily.
•
Remove any excessive spillovers. Any spills on
the oven bottom should be wiped-up and removed
before starting the self-cleaning cycle. To clean,
use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers
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.
•
Clean any 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
heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and
water. These areas are shown in white (See Fig. 1).
34
CAUTION
During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the range
can become very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave small
children unattended near the appliance.
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.
DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the
automatic door locking system. Use caution when
opening the door after the self-cleaning cycle is
completed. The oven may still be VERY HOT.
Fig. 1
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.
SELF-CLEANING

1. The time of day and “Hot” will appear in the display
window (See Fig.3).
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 hour and
“Hot” is no longer displayed the “door OPn” message
should appear (Fig. 4). When this message turns off
the oven door may be opened. Use caution and avoid
possible burns when opening the door after the selfcleaning cycle has completed. The oven may still be
VERY HOT.
Go to step 5 if you wish to start
self-clean immediately.

Finish steps 2 thru 6 if setting a
delayed start self-clean cycle.
1. Press cancel.
2. Allow enough time for the oven to cool and for the
“door OPn” message to appear (Fig. 4). When this
message turns off the oven door may be opened. If a
self-clean cycle was active, then stopped or interrupted
by power failure, it may be necessary to run a selfclean cycle again to thoroughly clean the oven. Please
be aware that you may need to allow up to four hours
before self-clean can be started again.
2. Press delay start.
3. Enter 9 0 0.
4. Press start.
5. Press self clean once for a 3-hour
CAUTION

To avoid possible burns use care when opening the oven
door after the self-cleaning cycle. Stand to the side of
the oven when opening the door to allow hot air or
steam to escape.
6. Press start.
IMPORTANT
As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven door
lock will begin to close automatically. “door Loc” will
appear in the display (See Fig. 1). DO NOT open the
oven door while “door Loc” is on (allow 15 seconds for
the oven door to completely lock).
Once the door has locked “CLn” will appear in the
display indicating the oven will begin the self-clean
process (Fig. 2).

If it becomes necessary to stop a self-clean cycle
once it has been activated:
Fig. 2
DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the
automatic door locking system. Use caution and avoid
possible burns when opening the door after the selfcleaning cycle has completed. The oven may still be
VERY HOT.
NOTES
When the self-clean feature is active you may check the
amount of time remaining in the self-clean cycle by
pressing the
pad once. The oven door will be
locked until the range has cooled sufficiently. You will
need to allow about 1 additional hour to the time
displayed before you can open the oven door. When the
oven is cool, wipe away any residue or powdered ash
with a damp cloth or paper towel.

CARE & CLEANING
Cooktop maintenance
IMPORTANT
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to
maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop.
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply some of
the glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner supplied with your new
appliance. Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or no-scratch
cleaning pad. 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 metal 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.
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or ceramic-coated)
with rough or dirty bottoms can mark or scratch the
cooktop surface.
Cooktop cleaning
CAUTION
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are
turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner directly
to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a non-abrasive
plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad to clean the entire
cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned
thoroughly, leaving no residue.
For heavy, burned on soil:
Apply a few drops of glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner directly
to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a non-abrasive
plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad, applying pressure as
needed. Do not use the pad you use to clean the cooktop
for any other purpose.
If soils remain, carefully scrape soils with a metal razor
blade scraper, holding scraper at a 30 degree angle to the
surface. Remove loosened soils with cooktop cleaning
cream and buff surface clean.
Do not:
• Slide anything across the cooktop.
• 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.
• Drop heavy or hard objects on the ceramic glass cooktop,
they may cause it to crack.
30°
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled
or melted onto the 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 cooktop to cool,
and use the same method for heavy or burned on soils.
37
CARE & CLEANING
Cooktop cleaning (cont’d)
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.
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 for aluminum use on the cooktop
• Aluminum Foil - Use of aluminum foil on a hot cooktop
may damage the ceramic cooktop. Do not use thin
aluminum cooking utensils or allow aluminum foil to
touch the ceramic cooktop under ANY circumstances.
Replacing the oven interior light
CAUTION
Be sure the range is unplugged and all parts are COOL before
replacing oven light. Wear a leather-faced glove for protection
against possible broken glass.
The interior oven light bulb is located at the rear oven cavity
and is covered with a glass shield. The glass shield must be
in place whenever the oven is in use (See Fig. 1).
Replacing the oven interior light bulb:

Problem
Solution
Poor baking results.
• Many factors affect baking results. Make sure the proper oven rack position is
used. Center food in the oven and space pans to allow air to circulate. Allow
the oven to preheat to the set temperature before placing food in the oven.
Try adjusting the recipe's recommended temperature or baking time. If you
feel the oven is too hot or cool, see “Adjusting Oven Temperature” section in
this Use & Care Guide.
Appliance is not level.
• Be sure floor is level, strong & stable enough to adequately support range.
• If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
• Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven
rack. Adjust leveling legs at base of appliance until the rack is level.
• Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear not level. Be sure cabinets
are square & have sufficient room for appliance clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily. Appliance
must be accessible for service.
• Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly. Contact builder or installer to make
appliance accessible.
• Carpet interferes with appliance. Provide sufficient space so appliance can be lifted
over carpet.
Surface cookware seems too hot or not
hot enough.
• Incorrect induction cooktop power level setting. Adjust power level setting
higher or lower as needed.
Induction cooking zone does not heat
cookware or does not heat evenly.
• Be sure the correct surface control is activated for the cooking zone.
• Be sure to use the correct cookware material type for induction cooking. Use
cookware specifically identified by the manufacturer to use for induction
cooking. If you’re not sure, use a magnet to test whether the cookware type
will work. If a magnet sticks to the bottom of the cookware, the material type
is correct for induction cooking.
• Be sure to read about pan-sensing in the Induction Cooking section and correct
any pan-sensing issues in the checklist provided.
• Use quality heavier gauge cookware.
Cooking zones do not glow when
heating.
• The induction cooking zones do not glow even when they are hot. Induction
cooking uses electromagnetic energy to induce heat directly to the cookware.
Entire appliance does not operate.
• The time of day is not set. The time of day must first be set in order to
operate the oven. See “Setting the clock” in the Setting Oven Controls
section.
• Make sure cord/plug is plugged correctly into outlet.
• Electrical power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric
company for service.
• Service wiring is not complete. Contact your dealer, installing agent or

Oven light does not work.
• Be sure the light is secure in the socket. Also see “Changing & replacing the oven
light” in the Care & Cleaning section.
Oven smokes excessively during broiling.
• Incorrect setting. Follow broiling instructions in Setting Oven Controls.
• Make sure oven door is opened to broil stop position.
• Meat too close to the broil element. Reposition the broil rack to provide
proper clearance between the meat & the element. Preheat the broil
element for searing.
• Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut remaining
fatty edges to prevent curling, but do not cut into lean.
• Broiler pan (on some models) insert wrong side up and grease not draining.
Always place insert on the broiler pan with ribs up & slots down to allow
grease to drip into pan.
• Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary when
broiling frequently. Old grease or food spatters cause excessive smoking.
Flames inside oven or smoking from oven
vent.
• Excessive spillovers in oven. For example this will happen for pie spillovers or
large amounts of grease left on the oven bottom. Wipe up excessive spillovers
before starting oven. If flames or excessive smoke are present see “Broiling”
in the Setting Oven Controls section.
Oven control beeps & displays any F or E
error code message.
• Electronic control has detected a fault or error condition. Press CANCEL to
clear the display and stop beeping. Try the selected feature again. If the E or
F error code repeats, remove power from appliance, wait 5 minutes and then
return power to appliance. Try the selected feature again. If the fault
continues, record the fault or error code and call for service.
Self-cleaning cycle does not work.
• Oven control not set properly. Follow instructions under Self-cleaning.
Soil not completely removed after
running self-cleaning cycle.
• Self-cleaning cycle was interrupted. Follow steps under "Stopping or
interrupting a self-cleaning cycle" under Self-cleaning.
• Excessive spillovers on oven bottom. Remove before starting self-clean.
• Failure to clean bottom, front top of oven, frame of oven or door area outside
oven seal. These areas are not in the self-cleaning area, but get hot enough
to burn on residue. Clean these areas before the self-cleaning cycle is started.
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.
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.

Scratches or abrasions on cooktop
surface.
• Coarse particles such as salt or sand 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.
• Cleaning materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been used.
See “Cooktop cleaning and maintenance” in the Care and Cleaning section of
this Use & Care Guide.
• Cookware with rough bottom has been 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. Use a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning creme to
remove the marks. See "Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance" in the Care and
Cleaning section.

surface.
• Boilovers are cooked onto surface. Use razor blade scraper to remove soil. See
"Cooktop cleaning and maintenance" in the Care & Cleaning section.
