paper, plastic and cloth items, such as cookbooks, plasticware
and towels, as well as flammable liquids. Do not store
explosives, such as aerosol cans, on or near the range.
• Do Not Leave Children Alone—Children should not be
left alone or unattended in the area where appliance is
in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any
part of the appliance.
OF THE OVEN. Both surface units and oven 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 touch these areas until they have had sufficient time
to cool. Among these areas are the cook top, surfaces facing
the cook top, the oven vent openings and surfaces near these
openings, oven door and window.
• Wear Proper Apparel—Loose-fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn while using the appliance. Do not
let clothing or other flammable materials contact hot surfaces.
• Do Not Use Water or Flour on Grease Fires—Smother
the fire with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry
chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
• When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or
grease may catch fire if allowed to become too hot.
• Use Only Dry Potholders - Moist or damp potholders on
hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let
potholders touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or
other bulky cloth instead of a potholder.
• Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers - Buildup of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in
• Remove the oven door from any unused range if it is to
be stored or discarded.
IMPORTANT—Do not attempt to operate the range during
a power failure. If the power fails, always turn off the range.
If the range is not turned off and the power resumes, the range

Important Safety Instructions
• Use Care When Opening 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 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.
• Know which knob controls each surface heating unit. Place a
pan of food on the unit before turning it on, and turn the unit off
before removing the pan.
• Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped with one or
more surface units of different sizes. 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 element will also
improve efficiency.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend Over
Adjacent Surface Elements—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 surface
• Never Leave Surface Elements Unattended at High Heat
Settings—Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that
may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Do Not Immerse or Soak Removable Heating Elements—
Heating elements should never be immersed in water. Heating
elements clean themselves during normal operation.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass, glass/
ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are
suitable for cook top service without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s
recommendations for cook top use.
• When flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn the fan on.
• 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.
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area underneath 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 manufacturer’s
instructions for cleaning.
• 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 reflector pans. Only use aluminum foil as recommended
in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or fire. Improper installation of these liners
may result in risk of electric shock, or fire.

Before Setting Oven Controls
Oven Vent Location
The oven vent is located under the left rear surface element (See
Fig. 1). When the oven is on, warm air passes through the vent. This
venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good
baking results. DO NOT BLOCK OVEN VENT.
Removing & Replacing Oven Racks
Fig. 1
To remove, pull the rack forward until it stops. Lift up front of rack and slide
out. To replace, fit the rack onto the guides on the oven walls. Tilt the front
of the rack upward and slide the rack back into place.

Air Circulation in the Oven
For best air circulation and baking
results allow 2-4" (5-10 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. The hot air
must be able to circulate around the
pans and cookware in the oven for
even heat to reach around the food.

Fig. 5
Before Setting Surface Controls
ELEMENT ON Indicator Lights
Your range is equipped with surface control indicator lights that will glow on your
range— the ELEMENT ON indicator lights (See Fig. 1).
Fig. 1
The ELEMENT ON located on the control panel and will glow when a surface
element is turned ON. A quick glance at this indicator light after cooking is an
easy check to be sure ALL surface controls are turned OFF.
Using proper cookware
The size and type of cookware used will influence the setting
needed for best cooking results. Cookware should have flat
bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface heating
element (See Fig. 2). Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across
the bottom of the cookware (See Fig. 3).
Cookware Material Types
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
& 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. May
leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see Aluminum above).
STAINLESS STEEL - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking
results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
CAST IRON - A poor 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.

Be sure to follow the
recommendations for
using proper
cookware as
illustrated in Figs. 2 &
3. For more

Cleaning section.
Self-Cleaning Oven
A Self-Cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking
temperatures) which eliminate soils completely or reduces them to a fine
powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
• DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any
part of the Self-Cleaning oven.
• 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.
• Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils and any aluminum
foil. These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures.
• Remove oven racks. If they are not removed during the Self-Clean cycle
their color will turn slightly blue and the finish will be dull. After the cycle is
complete and the oven has cooled, rub the sides of the oven racks with
wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of salad oil (this will make
the racks glide easier into the rack position).
• Remove any excessive spillovers in the oven cavity 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.
NOTE: Prior to setting the Self-Clean cycle, any spills remaining on the oven
bottom should be removed.
The Bake element is located in the lower oven cavity (See illustration at
left).The bake element is designed to be tilted up using your hand from the front
of the bake element. This will allow easier access to the oven bottom for
cleaning. Remove the Bottom Rack before raising the element. Be careful not
to raise the element more than 4 or 5 inches from the resting position.
Baking element
may be tilted about
4 or 5 inches
to clean oven bottom
The oven bake and broil elements may appear to have cooled after
they have been turned OFF. The elements may still be hot and burns may occur
if these elements are touched before they have cooled sufficiently.
Starting the Self-Clean Cycle
For satisfactory results, use a 2 hour Self-Clean cycle for light soils and a 3 hour cycle for heavier soils. NOTE: The
kitchen area should be well ventilated using an open window, ventitlation fan or exhaust hood during the 1st Self-Clean
cycle. This will help eliminate the normal odors associated with the 1st Self-Clean cycle.
To Set the Controls for a Self-Clean Cycle:
1. Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day.
2. Press
. "— — —" appears in the display.
3. Press the

As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven lock will begin to close automatically and the “LOCK” indicator light
will flash. DO NOT open the oven door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the oven door to lock).
4. "CLn" will appear in the display during the Self-Clean cycle and the "LOCK" light will glow until the Self-Cleaning cycle
is complete or cancelled and the oven temperature has cooled.
When the Self-Clean Cycle has Completed:
1. The time of day or "End" will appear in the display window and the “Clean” and "LOCK" light will continue to glow.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened.
3. If “End” is in the display and the Clean indicator light remains ON, press
. The time of day will appear in the
NOTE: When the oven is cool, wipe away any residue or powdered ash with a damp cloth or paper towel.
Stopping or Interrupting a Self-Cleaning Cycle
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a Self-Cleaning cycle:
1. Press
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened.
3. Restart the Self-Clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.
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.
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 Self-Cleaning cycle has completed. The oven may still be VERY HOT.

of vinegar & water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry & polish with a soft cloth.
Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth 1st. DO NOT spray liquids directly on the
control pad and display areas. DO NOT use large amounts of water on the control panel - excess
water on the control area may cause damage to the appliance. DO NOT use other liquid
cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or some paper towels - they will damage the finish.
Painted Control
Panels & Display
Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls to OFF & remove the control knobs. To
remove, pull each knob straight off the shaft. Use the general cleaning instructions provided in the
paragraph above.
Cooktop Surface,
Below Cooktop,
Broiler Pan & Insert
(some models),
Broiler Drawer (some
models), Door Liner &
Oven Bottom
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1 solution of
clean water & ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with an ammonia-soaked paper towel
for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp cloth, then scrub with a soap-filled
scouring pad. Rinse & wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may
become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners on the range top.
Oven Racks
Remove oven racks. See "Removing & Replacing Oven Racks" under Before Setting Oven
Controls. Use a mild, abrasive cleaner, following the cleaner’s recommendations. Rinse with
clean water & let dry. After cleaning the racks, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a
cloth containing a small amount of salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the oven
rack positions).
Oven Door
Use soap & water to thoroughly clean the top, sides & front of the oven door. Rinse well. You
may use a glass cleaner on the outside glass of the oven door. DO NOT immerse the door in
water. DO NOT spray or allow water or the glass cleaner to enter the door vents. DO NOT
use oven cleaners, cleaning powders or any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the outside of
the oven door. DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The oven door gasket is made of a woven
material, on Self-Cleaning models, which is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not
to rub, damage or remove this gasket.
Steel (some models)
Clean stainless steel with hot soapy water & a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and a cloth.
DO NOT use cleaners with high conecentrations of chlorides or chlorines. DO NOT use harsh
scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for cleaning stainless
steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners form the surface as bluish stains may occur during
heating that cannot be removed.
Suface Elements &
Drips Bowls
See Surface Elements and Drip Bowls later in the General Care & Cleaning section.
General Care & Cleaning
Surface Elements and Drip Bowls
Surface elements can be unplugged and removed to make cleaning the drip pans easier. The surface elements clean
themselves when they are turned on. Food spilled on a hot element will burn off. Food spilled on a cool element may be
cleaned with a damp cloth—any remaining soil will burn off the next time the element is used.
Never immerse a surface element in water.
To Remove the Surface Elements and Drip Bowls
1. Lift the edge of the drip bowl across from the terminal end. Lift the surface
element and drip bowl together just enough to clear the cooktop.
2. While holding the drip bowl and surface element, gently pull the terminal end
out from the terminal plug. If equipped, DO NOT remove the hold down clip from
the drip bowl.
Be sure the range is cool
before removing elements or drip bowls. Be
careful not to bend terminal ends when
replacing elements after cleaning.
When lowering the lift-up
range top, grasp the sides with finger-tips
only. Be careful not to pinch fingers. DO
NOT drop or bend the range top when
raising or lowering. This could damage
the surface.
To Clean Drip Bowls
Wash in hot, soapy water or in the dishwasher. Rinse and dry while still warm. Hard
to remove, burned on soil can be removed by soaking the drip bowls for about 20
minutes in a lightly diluted liquid cleanser or a solution of ammonia and water (1/
2 cup ammonia to 1 gallon of water). A nylon scrubber may be used after soaking.
DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or steel wool, as they will scratch the surface.
Always rinse with clean water and polish dry with a soft cloth.
To Replace Drip Bowls and Surface Elements
1. Slide the terminal end on the element through the opening in the drip bowl.
2. Align the element support to rest on the rim inside the drip bowl. If your drip bowl
is equipped with a hold down clip, align the element support opposite the
terminal end with the slot in the hold down clip, and snap into place.
3. After the element is positioned in the drip bowl, line up the terminal end with
the terminal plug as shown.
4. Hold the surface element and drip bowl together as level as possible and firmly
push the terminal end into the terminal plug. Make sure element terminal is
seated properly into terminal plug. Make sure the surface element is level to
reduce the hazard of pans sliding off the element.
To Raise the Top for Cleaning
1. Grasp the sides and lift from the front. Lift-up rods will support the top in a raised
position. Only lift the top far enough to allow the support rods to snap into place.
2. Clean underneath using a clean cloth and hot, soapy water.
3. To lower the top, gently push back on each rod to release the notched support.
Hold the range top and slide the lift rods down into the range frame.

Before You Call
Solutions to Common Problems
Before you call for service, review the following list. It may save you time & expense. The list includes common occurrences
(shown in bold) that are not the result of defective workmanship or materials in this appliance. The possible corrections to these
problems are provided with the problem listed:
Oven smokes excessively during broiling - (1) Control(s) not
set properly. Follow Broil instructions under Setting Oven
Controls. (2) Make sure oven door is opened to broil stop
position. (3) 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. (4) Meat not
properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut fatty
edges to prevent curling, but do not cut into lean. (5) Insert on
broiler pan wrong side up & grease not draining. Always place
grid on the broiler pan with ribs up & slots down to allow grease
to drip into pan (some models). (6) Grease has built up on oven
surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary when broiling
frequently. Old grease or food spatters cause excessive
Range is not level - (1) Poor installation. Place oven rack in
center of oven. Place a level on the oven rack. Adjust leveling
legs at base of range until the oven rack is level. (2) Be sure
floor is level, strong & stable enough to adequately support
range. (3) If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to
correct the situation. (4) Kitchen cabinet alignment may make
range appear not level. Be sure cabinets are square & have
sufficient room for range clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily. Appliance must be accessible
for service - (1) Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly.
Contact builder or installer to make appliance accessible. (2)
Carpet interferes with range. Provide sufficient space so range
can be lifted over carpet.
Surface element too hot or not hot enough - Incorrect control
setting. Be sure the correct control is ON for the element to be
Poor baking results - Many factors affect baking results. Make
sure the proper oven rack position is used. Center food in the
oven & 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 Your
Oven Temperature in this Use & Care Manual.
Surface element does not heat - (1) 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 & medium-weight pans heat evenly. Because
lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily. (2) No
power to the appliance. Check steps under "Entire Appliance
Does Not Operate" in this checklist. (3) Incorrect control
setting. Make sure the correct control is ON for the surface
element to be used.
Entire appliance does not operate - (1) The time of day is not
set. The time of day must first be set in order to operate the
oven. See “To Set the Clock” in the Setting Oven Controls
section.(2) Make sure cord/plug is plugged correctly into outlet.
(3) Service wiring is not complete. Contact your authorized
service agent. (4) Electrical power outage. Check house lights
to be sure. Call your local electric company for service.
Oven does not operate - Be sure the oven controls are set
properly for the desired function. See Setting Oven Controls in
this Use & Care Manual or read the instructions “Entire
appliance does not operate” in this checklist.
Oven light does not work (some models) - Replace or tighten
bulb. See Changing Oven Light section in this Use & Care Manual.
Soil not completely removed after Self-Cleaning cycle Failure to clean bottom, front top of oven, frame of oven or door
area outside oven seal. These areas are not in the SelfCleaning area, but get hot enough to burn on residue. Clean
these areas before the Self-Cleaning cycle is started. Burnedon residue can be cleaned with a stiff nylon brush and water or
a nylon scrubber. Be careful not to damage the oven gasket.
Self-Cleaning cycle does not work - (1) Oven control not set
properly. Follow instructions under Self-Cleaning. (2) SelfCleaning cycle was interrupted. Follow steps under "Stopping
or Interrupting a Self-Cleaning Cycle" under Self-Cleaning.
Drip bowls are pitting or rusting (Coil Cooktop models only) (1) Foods with acids, such as tomatoes, if allowed to stand in/
on bowls will cause corrosiion. Remove and wash drip bowls
as soon as possible after a spill over. (2) Normal environment.
Houses located along sea coasts are exposed to salt air.
Protect bowls as much as possible from direct exposure to salt
Drip bowls are turning color or distorted (Coil Cooktop
models only) - Bottom surface of cookware extends beyond
surface element and touches cooktop surface. This can cause
high enough temperatures to discolor the drip bowls. DO NOT
use cookware of this type. Pan sizes should be matched to the
size of the element. Replacement drip bowls may be
purchased from your appliance dealer.
Oven control beeps & displays any F code error (for example
F11) - Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press
CLEAR/OFF to clear the display & stop beeping. Reprogram
oven. If fault recurs, record fault number. Press CLEAR/OFF &
contact an authorized service agent.
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.
