each surface heating unit.
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, The use of undersized utensils will expose a
portion of the surface heating unit to direct contact and
may result in ignition of clothing, Proper relationship of
utensil to the surface unit will also improve efficiency,
Utensil HandJes ShouJd BeTumed Inward and ShouJd
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 the utensil should be positioned so that it is
turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface
unit,

o Do Not UseWater or Ftour on Grease Fires--Smother
the fire with a pan tid, or use baking soda, a dry
chemicaJ or foam-type extinguisher.
o When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or
grease may catch fire if allowed to become too hot,
Use Only Dry PothoJders--Moist
or damp potholdere
on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do
not let the petholders touch hot heating surface units or
interior oven elements, Do not use a towel or other bulky
cloth instead of a potholder,
o Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers--Build
up of

the Ceramic
G_ass Cooktop
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements located
below the surface of the glass, The design of the ceramic
cooktop outlines the area of the surface element underneath,
Make sure the diameter of the pan matches the diameter of the
element outline on the cooktop (See Figure 1),
Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop to the
cookware, Only fiat:bottom cookware should be used, The type
and size of cookware, the number of surface elements in use
and their settings, are all factors that will affect the amount of
heat that will spread to areas beyond the surface elements, The
areas surrounding the elements may become hot enough to
cause burns.
About
the
Radiant
Surface
E_ements
The element temperature rises gradually and evenly, As the
temperature rises, the element will glow red, To maintain the
selected setting, the element will cycle on and off, The heating
element retains enough heat to provide a uniform and consistent
heat during the off cycle, For efficient cooking, turn off the
element several minutes before cooking is complete, This will
allow residual heat to complete the cooking process,
Locations
of the
Radiant
Surface
E_ements
and
Controls
Your range is equipped with radiant surface elements with
different wattage ratings, The ability to heat food quickerand in
larger volumes increases as the element wattage increases,
The radiant surface elements are located on the cooktop as
follows:
Model B shown Only - Figure 2
NOTE: PUease read detailed instructions for ceramic
gUasscooktop cUeaningin the General Care & Cleaning
section and Before You Call checklist section of this
Use and Care Guide,
NOTE: Radiant eUements have a Hmiter that allows the
eUementto cycle on and off, even at the HI setting, This
helps to prevent damage to the ceramic smooth top,
Cycling at the HI setting is normal and can occur if the
cookware is too small for the radiant element orif the
cookware bottom is not flat (Refer to page 12 under
Selecting Surface Cooking Utensils),
NOTE: Due to the high intensity of heat generated
by the surface elements, the glass surface will turn
green when the element will be turned off, This
phenomenon is normal and the glass will come back
to its original white color after it has completely
cooled down, (White glass cooktops only),
Mode/A (See Figure 1):
- Two dual 5 or 7 inch radiant element at the right and left rear
position;
- Two dual 6 or 9 inch radiant element at the right and left front

popuUarmateriaUs avaHabb 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 glass 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
must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktops,
wiii vary depending on base material, Porcelain-enamel
GLASS - Slow heat conductor, Not recommended for ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass,
Air Circulation
in the Oven
For best air circulation and baking results allow 2°4" (5-10 cm) around the
cookware for properaircirculation 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 circulate around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat
to reach around the food,

Broiling
Broiling is a method of cooking tender cuts of meat by direct heat under the broil element of the oven,
Preheating
Preheating is suggested when searing rare steaks, (Remove the broiler pan before
preheating, Foods will stick if placed on hot metal,) To preheat, set the oven control(s) to
BROIL as instructed in the Electronic Oven Control Guide, Wait for the element to become
red-hot, usually about 2 minutes, Preheating is not necessary when broiling meats well-done,
Open door
to the "Broil Stop"
position when broiling.
Always pu_l oven rack out
to the "atop" position
before
turning or removing
food.
To Broil
Broil on one side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side, Season and
serve, Always pull rack out to the "stop" position before turning or removing food,
Determining Broiling Times
Broiling times vary, so watch the food closely, Time not only depends on the distance from
the element, but on the thickness and aging of meat, fat content and doneness preferred, The
first side usually requires a few minutes longer than the second, Frozen meats also require
additional time,
Broiling Tips
The broiler pan and its grid allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the
high heat of the broiler,
DO NOT use the pan without
exposed grease could ignite.

Preparing the Oven for Self-Charting
1, Remove all excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the selfcleaning 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 tomatoes,
sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may
cause a dull spot even after cleaning,
2, Clean any soil from the oven frame and the door liner (see illustration),
These areas heat sufficiently during self-cleaning cycle to burn soil on,
Clean with soap and water,
3, Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils and any foil, These items do
not withstand high cleaning temperatures
4, Oven racks may be left in the oven or may be removed, if they go through
the clean cycle, their color will turn slightly dull, After the cycle is completed and the oven has cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper
or a cloth containing a small amount of baby oil or salad oil, This will make
the racks glide easier,
What to Expect During Cleaning
While the oven is in operation, the oven heats to temperatures much higher than those used in normal cooking, Sounds of
metal expansion and contraction are normal, Odor is also normal as the food soil is being removed, Smoke may appear
through the oven vent, located on the top of the control panel,
if heavy spillovers are not wiped up before cleaning, they may flame and cause more smoke and odor than usual, This is
normal and safe and should not cause alarm, if available, use an exhaust fan during the self-cleaning cycle,
NOTE: A smoke eliminator in the oven vent converts most of the soil into a colorless vapor,
