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

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.

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.
& Replacing
To remove, pull the rack forward until itstops. 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.

cooking space the Offset rack can be
used in the lowest rack position to
roast large cuts of meat and poultry.
Layer Cakes with 1 or 2 Oven
For best results when baking cakes using 2 oven racks, place cookware on rack positions 2 & 5 (for models with a visible bake
element). For models with a hidden bake element place oven racks in positions 3 (Flat rack) & 6 with the Offset rack if equipped
(Refer to Fig. 4).
For best results when using a single oven rack, place cookware on rack position 4 (for all models - Refer to Fig. 5).
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.

Before Setting
Oven Controls
ON indicator
Your range is equipped with surface control indicator lights that will glow on your
range--the ELEMENT ON indicator lights (See illustration at left).
The ELEMENT ON is located on the control panel and will glow when a surface
element is turned ON. A quick glance at these indicator lights after cooking is an
easy check to be sure ALL surface controls are turned OFF.
Surface Controls
To Operate
(all models)
To Operate
the Surface
Place cooking utensil on the surface element.
Push in and turn the surface control knob either direction to the desired
setting. Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to
a lower setting to finish cooking. The control knobs do not have to be set
exactly on a particular setting. Use the settings as a guide and adjust the
control knob as needed.
When cooking is completed, turn the surface element OFF before removing
the pan. Note: The surface "ELEMENT ON" indicator light(s) will glow
when one or more elements are turned on. A quick glance at these
indicator light(s) when cooking is finished is an easy check to be sure all
surface elements are turned off. See chart below for recommended control
settings for different types of foods.
The suggested settings found in the table below are based on cooking in medium-weight aluminum pans with lids. Settings may
vary when using other types of pans.
Typeof Cooking
HIGH (HI - 9)
Start most foods, bring water to a boil, pan broiling

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. 1). Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across
the bottom of the cookware (See Fig. 2).
o Curved and warped pan
• Flat bottom and straight
• Tight fitting
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.
• Weight of handle does not
tilt pan. Pan is well
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.
• Pan sizes match the
amount of food to be
prepared and the size of
the surface element.
• Made of a materia} that
conducts heat well.
• Pan is smaller
• Easy to clean.
® Always match pot diameter
to surface element
COPPER - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily. May
leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see Aluminum above).
o Pan overhangs element by
more than one-half inch.
Be sure to follow the
recommendations for
using proper
cookware as
illustrated in Figs. 1 &
2. For more

is extremely sensitive to the fumes given
off during the Self-Cleaning cycle of any
range. Move birds to another wellventilated room.
DO NOT line the oven
walls, racks, bottom or any other part of
the range with aluminum foil. Doing so
will destroy heat distribution, produce
poor baking results and cause
permanent damage to the oven interior
(aluminum foil will melt to the interior
surface of the oven).
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.
Note: See additional cleaning information
for the oven door in the General Care &
Cleaning section.
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 the 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 orfire 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.
Some models have an exposed Bake element in the lower oven cavity. On
these models 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. 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.
the Select
For satisfactory results, use a 2 hour Self-Clean cycle for light soils and a 3 hour cycle for average or a 4 hour cycle for
heavy 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.
