when hot, may cause burns.
Do not use the oven or warmer drawer (if equipped) for storage.
• Storage in or on Appliance—Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven,
near surface units or in the drawer (if equipped). This includes 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 appliance. Flammable materials
may explode and result in fire or property damage.
Do not store items of interest to children in the cabinets above the
appliance. Children climbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.
• Do not leave children alone. Children should not be left alone or unattended in the
area where an appliance is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any
part of the appliance.
Safety
• DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS, AREAS NEAR THESE UNITS, OVEN HEATING
ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF THE OVEN OR WARMER DRAWER (if
equipped). 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
cooktop, surfaces facing the cooktop, 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.
To reduce the risk of burns, DO NOT move this appliance while hot.
This appliance is provided with casters to facilitate movement. To reduce the risk of
injury due to tipping of the appliance, verify the reinstallation of this appliance into
the anti-tip device provided after returning the appliance to the original installed
position.
Never use your appliance for warming or heating the room.
• 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 the potholders touch hot heating surface units or
interior oven elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of a potholder.
• Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers—Build up of pressure may cause the
container to burst and result in injury.
• Remove the oven door from any unused appliance if it is to be stored or
discarded.
• IMPORTANT—Do not attempt to operate the oven during a power failure. If the
power fails, always turn the oven off. If the oven is not turned off and the power
resumes, the oven may begin to operate again. Food left unattended could catch fire or
spoil.
Electronic controllers can be damaged by cold temperatures. When
you use your appliance for the first time, or if it has not been used for a long period
of time, make sure that it has been exposed to a temperature above 0°C/32°F for at
least 3 hours before connecting it to the power supply.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR COOKTOP
• Know which knob controls 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 Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Should 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.
5
6 Safety
• Never Leave Surface Units Unattended—Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Protective liners— Do not use aluminum foil to line oven bottom or any other part of
the appliance. Only use aluminum foil as recommended for baking if used as a cover
placed on the food. Any other used of protective liners or aluminum foil may result in a
risk of electric shock or fire or a short circuit.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic,
earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for cooktop service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations
for cooktop use.
• Do Not Use Decorative Surface Element Covers. If an element is accidentally turned
on, the decorative cover will become hot and possibly melt. Burns will occur if the hot
covers are touched. Damage may also be done to the cooktop.
FOR GLASS COOKTOPS ONLY
• Do Not Clean or Operate a 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 Glass 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
harmful fumes if applied to a hot surface.
• Avoid scratching the cooktop glass with sharp objects.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN
• Use Care When Opening Door or Drawer—Stand to the side of the appliance when
opening the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or
replace food in the oven/warmer drawer.
• Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven is vented at the front above the oven
door (ceramic glass cooktop models) or through the right rear element (coil element
models). 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/Warmer Drawer (if equipped) Racks. Always place oven racks
in desired location while oven/drawer (if equipped) is cool. Remove all utensils from
the rack before removing rack. 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 oven element or interior of the oven/warmer drawer (if
equipped).
• Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. The broiler pan and grid allow dripping fat
to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler.
• Do not cover your broiler or warmer drawer (if equipped) grid with aluminum foil.
Exposed fat and grease could ignite.
• Do not touch a hot light bulb with a damp cloth. Doing so could cause the bulb to
break. Disconnect the appliance or turn off the power to the appliance before removing
and replacing light bulb.
Safety
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR RANGE
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire.
Exhaust fan ventilation hoods and grease filters should be kept clean. Do not allow
grease to accumulate. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire. Refer to the hood
manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
• Cleaners/aerosols—Always follow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for
use. Be aware that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing
damage and/or injury.
SELF-CLEANING OVENS:
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts of the oven listed in this owner’s
guide. Before self-cleaning the oven, remove all utensils stored in the oven.
• Do not clean the oven door gasket. The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage or move the gasket.
• Oven racks. Oven racks will be damaged if left in the oven during a self-cleaning cycle.
• Do not use oven cleaners. No oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any part of the oven.
• Remove oven racks. Oven racks will be damaged if left in the oven during a selfcleaning cycle.
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off
during the self-clean cycle of any range. Move birds to another well ventilated room.

Setting Surface Controls
About the ceramic glass 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.
Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop to the cookware. Only flat-bottom
cookware should be used. The type and size of cookware, the number of surface elements
in use and the 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 elements
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.
Your range is equipped with radiant surface burners with different wattage ratings. The ability
to heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as the element wattage increases.

Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to cycle on and off, even at the
HI setting. This helps to prevent damage to the ceramic glass cooktop. Cycling at the HI
setting is normal and can also occur if the cookware is too small for the radiant element or
if the cookware bottom is not flat (Refer to page 18 for using correct cookware instructions
with the cooktop).
Please read detailed instructions for ceramic glass cooktop cleaning in the General Care
& Cleaning section and Solutions to Common Problems section of this Use and Care
Guide.

for using cookware that is shown in
the illustrations at right.
Note: Always use a cooking utensil for its intended purpose. Follow manufacturer’s instructions. Some utensils
were not made to be used in the oven or on the cooktop.
Specialty pans such as lobster pots, griddles and pressure cookers may be used but must conform to the
above recommended cookware requirements.
Note: The size and type of cookware used will influence the setting needed for best cooking results.
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
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 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.

Setting the cooktop
The cooktop controls provide display to help set power levels for the cooking zones located
on the cooktop. These settings work the same way as traditional knob settings except
the settings are made using a touch sensitive panel and show settings using LED style
displays.
Available cooktop settings
Your control control provides different power level settings for each
of the cooking or heating zones. These displays have keypads that
allow the user to first activate (ON/OFF) the needed element and
then to quickly turn that element ON using 3 preset power levels
(lo, med or hi) - see Figs. 2 through 5 -.
In addition to the automatic settings, the + and - keypads allows for

Notes
● Pressing a cooktop ON OFF key only activates or deactivates a surface cooktop zone
but will not start the heating process. Activating and powering any surface cooktop zone
requires pressing two keys - the ON OFF key first and then the power level selection (+,
- or med) must be added before the cooktop zone will begin heating.
● Any of the cooking zones will begin to heat ONLY when activated - See Fig. 2, p 19. If
a power level is not added to the active cooking zone within 10 seconds of being active
the control will automatically deactivate the cooking zone.
● If activating a surface cooking zone when no surface cooking zones are already active,
you will need to press and hold the ON OFF key for a few seconds longer than normal
before the first cooking zone will activate. Once any cooking zone is active, any zones
added will respond immediately.

Warmer oven operation
To Operate the Warmer Oven
The purpose of the warmer oven is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Always
start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food in the warmer drawer.
All food placed in the warmer oven should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain
moisture and softness. Do not cover crisp foods. Do not use plastic wrap to cover food.
Plastic may melt onto the drawer and be very difficult to clean.
Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven use in the warmer drawer.
Arranging Warmer Oven Rack Positions
Set the warmer oven rack in the vertical position as shown below.
The rack can be used in 2 ways:
• In the upright position to allow low
profile food items to be placed both
under and on top of the rack (for
example, rolls or biscuits on top of the
rack and a casserole dish under).
• In the downward position to allow
you to place light weight food items
and empty dishware (for example, rolls
or pastries and dinner plates).
Upright Position
Downward Position
Use the warmer drawer to keep hot foods hot such as: vegetables, gravies, meats, casseroles, biscuits
and rolls, pastries and heated dinner plates.

Use caution with the COOK TIME or END TIME features. Use the automatic timer when
cooking cured or frozen meats and most fruits and vegetables. Foods that can easily spoil such as milk,
eggs, fish, meat or poultry, should be chilled in the refrigerator first. Even when chilled, they should not stand
in the oven for more than 1 hour before cooking begins, and should be removed promptly when cooking is
completed. Eating spoiled food can result in sickness from food poisoning.
24 Cooking Modes
Broiling
This mode is best for meats, fish and poultry up to 1” thick. Broiling is a method of cooking
tender cuts of meat by direct heat under the broil element of the oven. The high heat
cooks quickly and gives a rich, brown outer appearance. The oven can be programmed to
broil at any temperature from 300°F to 550°F with a default temperature of 550°F.
Broiling Tips:
•For optimum browning, preheat the broil element for 2 minutes.
•Broil one side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and
serve.
•Always pull the rack out to the "stop" position before turning or removing food.
•Always use the broiler pan and its grid when broiling. It allows the dripping grease to be
kept away from the high heat of the broil element (see Figure 1).
•For best broiling results, broil with the oven door slightly open.
•DO NOT use the broil pan without the insert. DO NOT cover the broil pan insert with
foil. The exposed grease could catch fire. DO NOT use the roasting rack when broiling.

Convection baking
This mode of cooking enables you to obtain the best culinary results when baking with
multiple pans and racks. Multiple rack baking may slightly increase cook time for some
foods but the overall result is time saved. Most foods cooked in a standard oven will cook
faster and more evenly with Convection Bake. Convection baking uses the three elements
and a fan to circulate the oven’s heat evenly and continuously within the oven. The oven
can be programmed for Convection baking at any temperature between 170°F to 550°F
with a default temperature of 350°F.
Convection Baking Tips:
• Always preheat your oven before using the Convection Bake mode.
• If your recipe cooking temperature has already been converted for
convection baking there is no need to reduce your oven temperature.
If your recipe has not had the temperature converted for convection
baking you can easily reduce the temperature using the Convection
Convert feature. Please see Convection Convert section on next
page for further instruction on temperature conversion.
• Use tested recipes with times adjusted for convection baking when
using this mode. With single rack convection baking some foods
may have as much as a 25% reduction in cook time; check food at
minimum time. Time reductions will vary depending on the amount
and type of food to be cooked.
• When using Convection Bake with a single rack, place oven rack in
position 3 or 4. If cooking on multiple racks, place the oven racks in
positions 2 and 6 or 1, 4 and 7.
• Most bakeries (except cakes) should be baked on pans with no sides
or very low sides to allow heated air to circulate around the food.
• Food baked on pans with a dark finish will cook faster.

Convection roasting
This mode is best for cooking tender cuts of beef, lamb, pork and poultry. Use this mode
when cooking speed is desired. The Convection Roasting gently browns the exterior
and seals in the juices. Convection roasting uses the hidden bake element, the hidden
convection element, the broil element and a fan to circulate the oven’s heat evenly and
continuously within the oven. The oven can be programmed for Convection Roasting at
any temperature between 170°F to 550°F with a default temperature of 350°F.
Convection Roasting Tips:
• Use the broiler pan and grid, and the roasting rack (Figure 1). The broiler pan will catch
grease spills and the grid will help prevent spatters. The roasting rack will
Roasting
hold the meat.
Rack
• Place an oven rack on rack position 2 (next-bottom).
• Make sure the roasting rack is securely seated on the grid in the broiler pan.
Grid
The roasting rack fits on the grid allowing the heated air to circulate under the
food for even cooking and helps to increase browning on the underside.
• There is no need to reduce the convection temperature or to use the
Convection Convert feature with this cooking mode.
• DO NOT use the broiler pan without the grid or cover the grid with aluminum foil.
• Always pull the rack out to the stop position before removing food.
• Position food (fat side up) on the roasting rack.

cOOKTOP cleaning AND MAINTENANCE
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended
Cleaning Creme to the ceramic surface. A sample of that cleaning creme
is supplied with your cooktop and it is available in most hardware stores.
Clean and buff with a paper towel. 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 aluminum or copper clad bottom 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 glass) with rough bottoms can mark or scratch the
cooktop surface. Do not slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop. Do not use your
cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the kitchen. Do not cook foods directly on the
cooktop surface without a pan. Do not drop heavy or hard objects on the glass cooktop, they
may cause it to crack or break.
Cleaning recommendations for the ceramic
glass cooktop
!
Caution
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
!
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.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme
directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel to clean
the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop
is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue. Do not
use the towel you use to clean the cooktop for any
other purpose.
For heavy, burned on soil:
First, clean the surface as described above. Then, 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.
General Care & Cleaning
Cleaning recommendations for the ceramic
glass cooktop (continued)
Caution
!
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use scrub pad.
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils must be removed immediately if spilled or melted onto the ceramic 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 on previous page).
Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same method for heavy or burned on soils.
Do not use the following on the ceramic glass 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.
Special Caution for Aluminum Foil and Aluminum Cooking Utensils
• Aluminum foil - Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not use thin aluminum
cooking utensils or allow foil to touch the ceramic cooktop under ANY circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils - The melting point of aluminum is much lower than that of other metals.
Care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans are used on the cooktop. If allowed to
boil dry, not only will the utensil be destroyed, but it may fuse to, break or mark the ceramic
glass surface, permanently damaging the cooktop surface.

47
48 Solutions to Common Problems
Self-cleaning cycle does not work
• Make sure the oven door is closed.
• Make sure you have removed the oven racks and the oven rack supports from the
oven.
• Controls not set properly. Follow instructions under “Using the Self-Clean Feature”.
Oven smokes Excessively during broiling
• Meat too close to the broiler element. Reposition the rack to provide more clearance
between the meat and the broiler. Preheat broil element for quick searing operation.
• Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut remaining fatty edges
to prevent curling, but do not cut into the lean.
• Grid on broiler pan wrong side-up. Grease does not drain into broiler pan. Always place
the grid on the broiler pan with the ribs up and the slots down to allow grease to drip
into the pan.
• Broiler pan used without grid or grid cover with aluminum foil. DO NOT use the broiler
pan without the grid or cover the grid with aluminum foil.
• Oven needs to be cleaned. Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is
necessary when broiling frequently. Grease or food spatters cause excessive smoking.
Soil not completely removed after self-cleaning
cycle is completed
• Failure to clean bottom, from 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.
• Excessive spillovers in oven. Set the self-clean cycle for longer cleaning time.
Poor Cooking results
• Many factors affect baking results. See Baking for hints, causes and corrections.
See Adjusting Oven Temperature.
• Many factors affect cooking results. Adjust the recipe’s recommended power levels
or cooking times.
• Cookware is too lightweight or warped. Use heavier quality cookware so foods being
prepared may cook more evenly.
Flames inside oven or smoke from vent
• Excessive spillovers in oven. This is normal, especially for high oven temperatures,
pie spillovers or for large amounts of grease on bottom of oven. Wipe up excessive
spillovers.
Solutions to Common Problems
Surface element does not heat
• No power to appliance. Check/reset breaker or replace fuse. If the problem is a circuit
overload, or improper connection of the armored cable supplied with the appliance, have
this situation corrected by a qualified electrician.
• Too low heat setting. Turn control to a slightly higher setting until element comes on.
• Incorrect control is on. Be sure to use correct control for the element needed.
Surface element too hot or not hot enough
• Incorrect control setting. Raise or lower setting until proper amount of heat is obtained.
Dial markings are an indicator of relative heat settings and will vary slightly.
• Lightweight or warped pans being used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or
heavyweight cookware.
• Voltage is incorrect. Be sure appliance is properly connected to the specified power
source.
• Use only flat bottom, evenly balanced, medium or heavyweight cookware. Pans having a
flat bottom heat better than warped pans. Cookware material affects heating. Heavy and
medium weight pans heat evenly. Because lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may
burn easily.
Food not heating evenly
• Improper cookware. Select flat-bottomed cookware of a proper size to fit element.
• Incorrect control setting. Raise or lower setting until proper amount of heat is obtained.
scratches or abrasions on ceramic glass cooktop
surface
• Coarse particles (such as salt or sand) are between cooktop and utensil. Be sure cooktop
surface and bottom of utensils are clean before use. Small scratches do not affect cooking
and will become less visible with use.
• Cleaning materials not recommended for glass ceramic cooktop have been used. See
Ceramic-Glass Cooktop section in this Owner’s Guide.
• Cookware with rough bottom has been used. Use flat-bottomed, smooth utensils. See
Selecting Surface Cooking Utensils in this Owner’s Guide.
