IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

WARNING

This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer.

Wash hands after handling.

DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF OVEN.

Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of an oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch or let clothing or other flammable materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces, such as oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors, also get hot and may cause burns if not cooled.

Use care when opening door.

The hot air and steam that escape can cause burns to hands, face and eyes. Let hot air or steam escape from the oven before removing or replacing food in the oven.

Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the manual. All other servicing should be performed by a qualified technician.

Do not use harsh etching, abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven door glass since they can scratch the surface. Scratches may cause the glass to shatter.

WARNING

If the door glass, cooktop glass, surface, or oven heating unit of the range are damaged, discontinue use of the range and call for service.

Do not operate the oven without the charcoal heater mesh.

Do not use plastic to cover food. Use foil or oven-safe lids only.

Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on the door, storage drawer or cooktop. They could damage the range and even tip it over, causing severe personal injury.

Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom, or any other part of the oven with aluminum foil or any other material. Doing so will disrupt 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)

Never attempt to dry a pet in the oven.

Never use your appliance for warming or heating the room.

Always use pot holders or oven mitts when removing food from the oven or the surface element. Cookware will be hot.

Use only dry pot holders.

Moist or damp pot holders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let the pot holder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth to remove food.

Do not heat unopened food containers.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

FLAMMABLE MATERIALS

WARNING

Be certain that all packing materials are removed from the appliance before operating.

Keep plastic, clothes, paper, and other flammable materials away from parts of the appliance that may become hot.

5

Do not store or use flammable material in the oven or near or on the cooktop. Flammable materials include paper, plastic, pot holders, linens, wall coverings, curtains, and gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids such as grease or cooking oil. These materials can be ignited when the oven and cooktop are in use.

Wear proper apparel.

Do not wear loose-fitting or hanging garments, which may ignite if they contact hot surfaces, and cause severe burns.

Do not use the oven for drying clothes. Only use the oven for its intended purpose.

If a cabinet storage is provided directly above cooking surface, place items that are not frequently used and can be safely stored in an area subjected to heat. Temperatures may be unsafe for volatile items such as flammable liquids, cleaners or aerosol sprays.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY

CAUTION

Be certain that all packing materials are removed from the appliance before operating.

Keep plastic, clothes, paper, and other flammable materials away from parts of the appliance that may become hot.

Always disconnect power from the appliance before servicing.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

CHILD SAFETY

Do not touch the hot surface between the bottom of the oven door and the top of the drawer on the front of the oven while the oven is in operation. The surface becomes hot

• and can cause burns and other injury.

Do not leave small children unattended near the oven.

WARNING

Do not leave children alone

or unsupervised near the appliance when it is in use or is still hot. Children should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance as they could be injured or burned.

CAUTION

Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets above a range or on the back guard of a range – children climbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.

• Never let a child hang on the oven door.

Do not allow children to crawl into the oven.

Let hot utensils cool in a safe place, out of reach of small children.

Children should not be allowed to play with controls or other parts of the appliance.

GLASS-CERAMIC COOKING SURFACE

Surface units 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 SURFACE

UNITS OR AREAS NEAR UNITS

or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface units or areas near units until they have had sufficient time to cool. This includes the cooktop and the area above the oven door.

Do not cook on a broken cooktop.

If the cooktop is broken, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a

• qualified technician immediately.

Do not use the glass cooktop surface as a cutting board.

Do not place or store items that can melt or catch fire on the glass cooktop, even when it is not being used.

Choose proper burner size.

For smaller pots and pans, use the smaller heating elements. For larger pots and pans, use the larger heating elements. Select pans that

sudden change in temperature.

Never cook directly on the glass. Always use cookware.

Always turn the surface units off before removing cookware.

Turn cookware handles inward so they don't extend over adjacent surface units.

This reduces the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to

• unintentional contact with the cookware.

Immediately clean spills on the cooking area to prevent a tough cleaning chore later.

• Some cleaners can produce dangerous fumes if applied to a hot surface.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

7

Always place the pan in the center of the surface unit you are cooking on.

Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings.

Proper contact of cookware to burner also will improve efficiency. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spills that may catch on fire.

Clean cooktop with caution.

Do not use sponges or cloth to wipe spills on a hot cooking area. Use a proper metal scraper. If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, it can cause steam burns. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.

Do not turn surface units on before placing cookware.

Do not store heavy items above the cooktop surface that could fall and damage it.

Do not place aluminum foil or plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders, or plastic wrappings or any other material on the range when it is in use.

Do not use a steel-wool pad or scrub pad or abrasive cleaning pads. They can scratch the surface.

ENERGY SAVING TIPS

Multiple-rack cooking saves time and energy. Whenever possible, cook foods requiring the same cooking temperature together in one oven.

For optimal performance and energy savings, follow the guides on page 29 for proper rack and pan placements.

Match the size of the cookware to the amount of food being cooked to save energy when heating. Heating ½ quart of water requires more energy in a 3-quart pot than in a 1-quart pot.

Use cookware with flat bottoms to provide the best contact with the cooktop surface when cooking on the glass-ceramic cooktop.

Match the size of the cooktop burner or element to the size of the cookware in use. Using a large element for a small pan wastes heating energy, and the exposed surface of the element is a burn or fire hazard.

Reduce energy use by cleaning light oven soils with the EasyClean

®

feature instead of self-clean.

Avoid opening the oven door more than necessary during use. This helps the oven maintain temperature, prevents unnecessary heat loss, and saves on energy use.

SAFETY DURING USE

Do not touch the oven racks while they are hot.

If a rack must be moved while the oven is hot, do not let the pot holder contact the hot heating element in the oven.

Use caution with the Timed Cook or Delayed Timed Cook 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 complete. Eating spoiled food can result in sickness from food poisoning.

Accessible parts may become hot when the grill is in use.

Do not place food or cookware on the bottom of the oven cavity. Doing so will cause permanent damage to the oven bottom finish.

Do not use water on grease fires.

Should an oven fire occur, leave the oven door closed and turn the oven off. If the fire continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use a fire extinguisher. Do not put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive and water can spread a grease fire and cause personal injury.

8

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Pull the oven rack to the stop-lock position when loading and unloading food from the oven. This helps prevent burns caused by touching hot surfaces of the door and oven walls.

Do not use the oven if a heating element develops a glowing spot during use or shows other signs of damage. A glowing spot indicates the heating element may fail and present a potential burn, fire, or shock hazard. Turn the oven off immediately and have the heating element replaced by a qualified service technician.

When using cooking or roasting bags in the oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.

SAFETY WHEN CLEANING

Open a window or turn on a ventilation fan or hood before self-cleaning.

If the oven is heavily soiled with oil, self-clean the oven before using the oven again. The oil could cause a fire.

Wipe up heavy soil on the bottom of the oven before using the Self Clean function.

Do not use oven cleaners.

Commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind should not be used in or around any part of the oven.

Never keep pet birds in the kitchen. The health of birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes released during an oven self-clean cycle. Fumes may be harmful or fatal to birds. Move birds to a well-ventilated room.

Clean in the self-clean cycle only parts listed in this manual. Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the broiler pan, all oven racks, the meat probe and any utensils or food from the oven.

Important Instruction. The oven displays an F error code and sounds three long beeps during the self-cleaning process if it malfunctions in the self-clean mode. Switch off the electrical power to the main fuse or breaker and have the oven serviced by a qualified technician.

It is normal for the cooktop of the range to become hot during a self-clean cycle.

Therefore, touching the cooktop during a self-clean cycle should be avoided.

Never pour cold water over a hot oven for cleaning. Doing so may cause the oven to malfunction.

Make sure oven lights are cool before cleaning.

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.

If there is a fire in the oven during self-clean, turn the oven off and wait for the fire to go out. Do not force the door open. Introduction of fresh air at self-clean temperatures may lead to a burst of flame from the oven. Failure to follow this instruction may result in severe burns.

COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY

• To protect against food-borne illnesses, cook meat and poultry thoroughly. The USDA has indicated the following as safe minimum internal temperatures for consumption:

Ground beef, veal, pork, or lamb: 160 °F

• Poultry: 165 °F

Beef, veal, pork, or lamb: 145 °F

Fish/seafood: 145 °F

OPERATION

Adjusting the Oven Temperature

Your new oven may cook differently from the one it replaced. Use your new oven for a few weeks to become more familiar with it before changing the temperature settings. If after familiarizing yourself with the new oven, you still think that it is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the oven temperature yourself.

NOTE

To begin, either raise or lower the thermostat

15 °F (8 °C). Try the oven with the new setting. If the oven still needs adjustment, raise or lower the thermostat again, using the first adjustment as a gauge. For example, if the adjustment was too much, raise or lower the thermostat 10 °F (5 °C).

If the adjustment was not enough, raise or lower the thermostat 20 °F (12 °C). Proceed in this way until the oven is adjusted to your satisfaction.

OPERATION

Using the Proper Cookware

The size and type of cookware will influence the settings needed for the best cooking results. Be sure to follow the recommendations for using proper cookware.

Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface heating element. Check for flatness by placing a ruler across the bottom of the cookware. The ruler should touch the cookware across the entire bottom, with no gaps.

Cookware recommendations

Flat bottom and straight sides

• Heavy-gauge pans

Pan sizes that match the amount of food to be prepared and the size of the surface element

Weight of handle does not tilt pan. Pan is well balanced

• Tight-fitting lids

Flat bottom woks

Cookware should not

• have a curved or warped bottom.

• be smaller or larger than the surface burner.

• have a heavy handle that tilts the pan.

• be a wok with a ring stand.

• have loose or broken handles.

• have loose-fitting lids.

NOTE

Do not use pans less than 7 inches in diameter on the front elements.

Do not use foil or foil-type containers. Foil may melt onto the glass. Do not use the cooktop if metal has melted on it. Call an authorized LG

Service Center.

Choosing Cookware

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 and 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 glass-ceramic

(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 but retains 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.

Home Canning Tips

Be sure that the canner is centered over the surface element and is flat on the bottom.

The base must not be more than 1 inch larger than the element. Use of water bath canners with rippled bottoms may extend the time required to bring the water to a boil and may damage the cooktop.

Some canners are designed with smaller bases for use on smooth surfaces.

Use the high heat setting only until the water comes to a boil or pressure is reached in the canner.

Reduce to the lowest heat setting that maintains the boil, or pressure. If the heat is not turned down, the cooktop may be damaged.

Using the Oven

Before Using the Oven

NOTE

• Because the oven temperature cycles, an oven thermometer placed in the oven cavity may not show the same temperature that is set on the oven.

• It is normal for the convection fan to run while preheating during a regular bake cycle.

The convection fan motor may run periodically during a regular bake cycle.

The heat turns off if the door is left open during baking. If the door is left open for longer than

30 seconds during baking, the heat turns off.

The heat turns back on automatically once the door is closed.

Oven Vent

Areas near the vent may become hot during operation and may cause burns. Do not block the vent opening.

Avoid placing plastics near the vent as heat may distort or melt the plastic.

It is normal for steam to be visible when cooking foods with high moisture content.

Oven Vent

Using Oven Racks

The racks have a turned-up back edge that prevents them from being pulled out of the oven cavity.

OPERATION

27

Replacing Racks

1

Place the end of the rack on the support.

2

Tilt the front end up and push the rack in.

CAUTION

• Replace oven racks before turning the oven on to prevent burns.

Do not cover the racks with aluminum foil, or any other material, or place anything on the bottom of the oven. Doing so will result in poor baking and may damage the oven bottom.

• Only arrange oven racks when the oven is cool.

Bake is used to prepare foods such as pastries, breads and casseroles. The oven can be programmed to bake at any temperature from 170 °F (80 °C) to

550 °F (285 °C). The default temperature is 350 °F

(175 °C).

OPERATION

Baking Tips

Baking time and temperature will vary depending on the characteristics, size, and shape of the baking pan used.

Check for food doneness at the minimum recipe time.

Use metal bakeware (with or without a nonstick finish), heatproof glass-ceramic, ceramic or other bakeware recommended for oven use.

Dark metal pans or nonstick coatings will cook food faster with more browning. Insulated bakeware will slightly lengthen the cooking time for most foods.

NOTE

The oven bottom has a porcelain-enamel finish.

To make cleaning easier, protect the oven bottom from excessive spillovers by placing a cookie sheet on the rack below the rack you are cooking on. This is particularly important when baking a fruit pie or other foods with a high acid content.

Hot fruit fillings or other foods that are highly acidic may cause pitting and damage to the porcelain-enamel surface and should be wiped up immediately.

Convection Mode

The convection system uses a fan to circulate the heat evenly within the oven. Improved heat distribution allows for even cooking and excellent results while cooking with single or multiple racks.

NOTE

The oven fan runs while convection baking. The fan stops when the door is open. In some cases, the fan may shut off during a convection bake cycle.

Tips for Convection Baking

Use Convection Bake for faster and more even multiple-rack cooking of pastries, cookies, muffins, biscuits, and breads of all kinds.

Bake cookies and biscuits 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.

• When using Convection Bake with a single rack, place the oven rack in position 3. If cooking on multiple racks, place the oven racks in positions 1 and 3 (for two racks).

• Multiple oven rack cooking may slightly increase cook times for some foods.

Cakes, cookies and muffins have better results when using multiple racks.

The Convection Roast feature is designed to give optimum roasting performance. Convection Roast combines cooking with the convection fan to roast meats and poultry. The heated air circulates around the food from all sides, sealing in juices and flavors.

Foods are crispy brown on the outside while staying moist on the inside. Convection roasting is especially good for large tender cuts of meat, uncovered.

Tips for Convection Roasting

Use a broiler pan and grid when preparing meats for convection roasting. The broiler pan catches grease spills and the grid helps prevent grease splatters.

1

Place the oven rack on the bottom.

2

Place the grid in the broiler pan.

3

Place the broiler pan on the oven rack.

Grid (sold separately)

CAUTION

• Do not use a broiler pan without a grid.

Do not cover the grid with aluminum foil.

Position food (fat side up) on the grid.

OPERATION

Broil

The Broil function uses intense heat from the upper heating element to cook food. Broiling works best for tender cuts of meat, fish, and thinly cut vegetables.

Some models may feature a hybrid broiler consisting of an inner broiler that utilizes a carbon heating element which provides instantaneous heat, and a traditional outer broiling element. During normal broiler operation, it is normal for either element to cycle off intermittently.

CAUTION

Do not use a broiler pan without a grid. Oil can cause a grease fire.

Do not cover the grid and broiler pan with aluminum foil. Doing so will cause a fire.

Always use a broiler pan and grid for excess fat and grease drainage. This will help to reduce splatter, smoke, and flare-ups.

NOTE

This range is designed for closed-door broiling.

Close the door to set the Broil function. If the door is open, the Broil function cannot be set and

door

appears on the display. Close the door and reset the Broil function. Opening the door turns off the broil burner during broiling.

If the door is opened during broiling, the broil burner turns off after five seconds. The broiler turns back on automatically once the door is closed.

Speed Broil (on some models)

The Speed Broil setting is designed to reduce the amount of time it takes to broil foods. By utilizing the infrared broil element, which provides heat instantaneously, there is no need for preheating.

Smoking

Due to the intense heat associated with broiling, it is normal to experience smoke during the cooking process. This smoke is a natural byproduct of searing and should not cause you to worry. If you are experiencing more smoke than you are comfortable with, use the following tips to reduce the amount of smoke in your oven.

1

Always use a broiler pan. Do not use saute pans or regular baking sheets for safety reasons.

2

The broiler pan should always be thoroughly cleaned and at room temperature at the beginning of cooking.

3

Always run your cooktop ventilation system or vent hood during broiling.

4

Keep the interior of your oven as clean as possible. Leftover debris from prior meals can burn or catch fire.

5

Avoid fatty marinades and sugary glazes. Both of these will increase the amount of smoke you experience. If you would like to use a glaze, apply it at the very end of cooking.

6

If you are experiencing significant smoke with any food item, consider:

• Lowering the broiler to the Lo setting.

Lowering the rack position to cook the food further away from the broiler.

Using the Hi broil setting to achieve the level of searing you desire, and then either switching to the Lo broil setting, or switching to the Bake function.

7

As a rule, fattier cuts of meat and fish will produce more smoke than leaner items.

8

Adhere to the recommended broil settings and cooking guidelines in the chart on the following page whenever possible.

OPERATION

Tips for Broiling

Beef

Steaks and chops should always be allowed to rest for five minutes before being cut into and eaten.

This allows the heat to distribute evenly through the food and creates a more tender and juicy result.

Pieces of meat that are thicker than two inches should be removed from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to cooking. This will help them cook more quickly and evenly, and will produce less smoke when broiling. Cooking times will likely be shorter than the times indicated in the Broiling Chart.

• For bone-in steaks or chops that have been

frenched

(all meat removed from around the bone), wrap the exposed sections of bone in foil to reduce burning.

Seafood

When broiling skin-on fish, always use the Lo broil setting and always broil the skin side last.

Seafood is best consumed immediately after cooking. Allowing seafood to rest after cooking can cause the food to dry out.

It is a good idea to rub a thin coating of oil on the surface of the broiling pan before cooking to reduce sticking, especially with fish and seafood. You can also use a light coating of non-stick pan spray.

Cleaning the Glass-Ceramic

Cooktop

CAUTION

Do not use scrub pads or abrasive cleaning pads. They may damage your cooktop surface.

For your safety, wear an oven mitt or pot holder while using a scraper on the hot cooking surface.

Use ceramic cooktop cleaner on the glass cooktop.

Other creams may not be as effective or may scratch, damage or stain the cooktop surface.

To maintain and protect the surface of the glass cooktop, follow these steps:

1

Before using the cooktop for the first time, clean it with a ceramic cooktop cleaner. This helps protect the top and makes cleanup easier.

2

Use ceramic cooktop cleaner daily to help keep the cooktop looking new.

3

Shake the cleaning cream well. Apply a few drops of cleaner directly to the cooktop.

4

Use a paper towel to clean the entire cooktop surface.

5

Rinse with clear water and use a dry cloth or paper towel to remove all cleaning residue.

NOTE

Do not heat the cooktop until it has been cleaned thoroughly.

IMPORTANT

If any sugar or food containing sugar (preserves, ketchup, tomato sauce, jellies, fudge, candy, syrups, chocolate) spills, or plastic or foil melts on the cooktop, remove the molten material IMMEDIATELY with a metal razor scraper (it will not damage the decorated cooking surface) while the cooking surface is still hot to avoid the risk of damage to the glass-ceramic surface. For your safety, please use an oven mitt or pot holder while scraping the hot cooking surface.

Burned-On Residue

1

While the cooktop is still hot, remove any burnt on deposits or spilled food from the glass-ceramic cooking surface with a suitable metal razor scraper. (Similar to scraping paint off of a windowpane, it will not damage the decorated cooking surface.) Hold the scraper at an approximate 30° angle to the cooktop.

NOTE

Do not use a dull or nicked blade.

To prevent burns, wear an oven mitt or pot holder while using the metal scraper.

2

When the cooking surface has cooled down, apply a few dabs (about the size of a dime) of an approved cleaner in each burner area and work the cleaning cream over the cooktop surface with a damp paper towel.

NOTE

Approved cleaners

• Weiman Cooktop Cleaning Cream

(www.weiman.com)

Cerama Bryte (www.ceramabryte.com)

Golden Ventures Cerama Bryte

• Easy-Off 3 in 1 Glass Top Cleaner Spray

(www.easyoff.us)

3

Rinse with clean water and wipe the cooktop surface with a clean, dry paper towel.

Metal Marks and Scratches

1

Be careful not to slide pots and pans across the cooktop. Doing so will leave metal markings on the cooktop surface. To help remove these marks, use a ceramic cooktop cleaner with a cleaning pad for ceramic cooktops.

2

If pots with a thin overlay of aluminum or copper are allowed to boil dry, the overlay may leave black discoloration on the cooktop. This should be removed immediately before heating again or the discoloration may be permanent.

CAUTION

Cookware with rough or uneven bottoms can mark or scratch the cooktop surface.

Do not slide metal or glass across the cooktop surface.

• Do not use cookware with any dirt build-up on the bottom.

EasyClean

®

LG’s EasyClean

®

enamel technology provides two cleaning options for the inside of the range. The

EasyClean

®

feature takes advantage of LG’s new enamel to help lift soils without harsh chemicals, and it runs using ONLY WATER for just 10 minutes in low temperatures to help loosen LIGHT soils before hand-cleaning.

While EasyClean

®

is quick and effective for small and LIGHT soils, the Self Clean feature can be used to remove HEAVY, built up soils. The intensity and high heat of the Self Clean cycle may result in smoke which will require the opening up of windows to provide ventilation. Compared to the more intense

Self Clean process, your LG oven gives you the option of cleaning with LESS HEAT, LESS TIME, and virtually NO SMOKE OR FUMES.

When needed, the range still provides the Self Clean option for longer, more thorough oven cleaning for heavier, built up soils.

Hot

will appear in the display, and the EasyClean

®

cycle will not be activated until the oven cavity cools down.

A plastic spatula can be used as a scraper to scrape off any chunks or debris before and during oven cleaning.

Using the rough side of a non-scratch scouring pad may help to take off burnt-on stains better than a soft sponge or towel.

Certain non-scratch scrubbing sponges, such as those made of melamine foam, available at your local stores, can also help improve cleaning.

The range should be level to ensure that the bottom surface of the oven cavity is entirely covered by water at the beginning of the EasyClean

®

cycle.

For best results, use distilled or filtered water. Tap water may leave mineral deposits on the oven bottom.

Soil baked on through several cooking cycles will be more difficult to remove with the EasyClean

®

cycle.

Do not open the oven door during the EasyClean

®

cycle. Water will not get hot enough if the door is opened during the cycle.

For hard to reach areas such as the back surface of the lower oven, it is better to use the Self Clean cycle.

Use at least ¼ cup (2 oz or 60 ml) of the water to completely saturate the soil on both the walls and in the corners of the oven.

5

Spray or pour the remaining 1 cup (8 oz or 250 ml) of water onto the bottom center of the oven cavity. The indentation on the oven bottom should be fully covered to submerge all soils.

Add water if necessary.

NOTE

Use the "mist" setting on the spray bottle for better coverage. The entire 1¼ cup (10 oz or 300 ml) of water should be used for each oven cavity cleaned. Do not spray water directly on the door.

Doing so will result in water dripping to the floor.

MAINTENANCE

Self Clean

The Self Clean cycle uses extremely hot temperatures to clean the oven cavity. While running the Self Clean cycle, you may notice smoking or an odor. This is normal; especially if the oven is heavily soiled.

During Self Clean, the kitchen should be well ventilated to minimize the odors from cleaning.

Before Starting Self Clean

Remove the oven racks, broiler pan, broiler grid, all cookware, aluminum foil or any other material from the oven.

• The kitchen should be well ventilated to minimize the odors from cleaning.

Wipe any heavy spillovers on the bottom of the oven.

Make sure that the oven light bulb cover is in place and the oven light is off.

The oven light cannot be turned on during a Self

Clean cycle. The oven light cannot be turned on until the oven temperature has cooled below

500 ˚F (260 ˚C) after a Self Clean cycle is complete.

CAUTION

Do not leave small children unattended near the appliance. During the Self Clean cycle, the outside of the range can become very hot to the touch.

• If you have pet birds, move them to another well-ventilated room. The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the Self Clean cycle of any range.

Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom or any other part of the range with aluminum foil or any other material. 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 door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use care when opening the oven door after the Self

Clean cycle. Stand to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow hot air or steam to escape. The oven may still be VERY HOT.

During the Self Clean cycle, the cooktop elements and warming drawer cannot be used.

NOTE

Remove oven racks and accessories before starting the Self Clean cycle.

If oven racks are left in the oven cavity during the Self Clean cycle, they will discolor and become difficult to slide in and out.

Clean the frame of the oven and door with hot soapy water. Rinse well.

• Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass material of the oven door gasket cannot withstand abrasion. It is essential for the gasket to remain intact. If you notice it becoming worn or frayed, replace it.

Wipe up any heavy spillovers on the oven bottom.

Make sure that the oven light bulb cover is in place and the oven light is off.

• It is normal for the fan to operate during the Self

Clean cycle.

The

Burner On

indicator light turns on when the knob is turned even if the cooktop element does not operate.

After the Self Clean Cycle

The oven door remains locked until the oven temperature has cooled.

You may notice some white ash in the oven. Wipe it off with a damp cloth or a soap-filled steel wool pad after the oven cools. If the oven is not clean after one self-clean cycle, repeat the cycle.

If oven racks were left in the oven and do not slide smoothly after a self-clean cycle, wipe racks and rack supports with a small amount of vegetable oil to make them glide more easily.

• Fine lines may appear in the porcelain because it went through heating and cooling. This is normal and will not affect performance.

NOTE

The Self Clean cycle cannot be started if the

Lockout feature is active.

Once the Self Clean cycle is set, the oven door locks automatically. You will not be able to open the oven door until the oven is cooled. The lock releases automatically.

Once the door has been locked, the lock indicator light stops flashing and remains on.

Allow about 15 seconds for the oven door lock to activate.

If the clock is set for a 12-hour display (default) the Delayed Self Clean can never be set to start more than 12 hours in advance.

During Self Clean

The Self Clean cycle uses extremely hot temperatures to clean the oven cavity. While running the Self Clean cycle, you may notice smoking or an odor. This is normal, especially if the oven is heavily soiled.

As the oven heats, you may hear sounds of metal parts expanding and contracting. This is normal and will not damage the oven.

• Do not force the oven door open when the lock is displayed. The oven door remains locked until the oven temperature has cooled. Forcing the door open will damage the door.

FAQs

What types of cookware are recommended for use with the cooktop?

The pans must have a flat bottom and straight sides.

• Only use heavy-gauge pans.

The pan size must match the amount of food to be prepared and the size of the surface element.

Use tight fitting lids.

• Only use flat-bottom woks.

Can I use aluminum foil to catch drippings in my oven cavity?

Never use aluminum foil to line the bottom or sides fo the oven or the warming drawer. The foil will melt and stick to the bottom surface of the oven and will not be removable. Use a sheet pan placed on a lower oven rack to catch drippings instead. (If foil has already melted onto the bottom of the oven, it will not interfere with the oven's performance.)

Why do the heating elements appear to be turning

ON and OFF during use of the cooktop or oven?

Depending on your cooktop element setting or the temperature selected in your oven, it is NORMAL for the cooking elements to cycle on and off.

Can I use aluminum foil on the racks?

Do not cover racks with aluminum foil. Covering entire racks with foil restricts air flow, leading to poor cooking results. Use a sheet pan lined with foil under fruit pies or other acidic or sugary foods to prevent spillovers from damaging the oven finish.

CAUTION

Foil may be used to wrap food in the oven or warming drawer, but do not allow the foil to come into contact with the exposed heating/broiling elements in the oven. The foil could melt or ignite, causing smoke, fire, or injury.

My new oven doesn’t cook like my old one. Is there something wrong with the temperature settings?

No, your oven has been factory tested and calibrated.

For the first few uses, follow your recipe times and temperatures carefully. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the oven temperature yourself to meet your specific cooking needs. Refer to the Oven Temperature Adjustment section in this manual for easy instructions on how to adjust your thermostat.

Can I leave my racks in the oven when running a

Self Clean cycle?

No. Although it will not damage the racks, it will discolor them and may make them hard to slide in and out during use. Remove all items from the oven before starting a Self Clean cycle.

Is it normal to hear a clicking noise coming from the back of my oven when I am using it?

Your new range is designed to maintain a tighter control over your oven’s temperature. You may hear your oven’s heating elements click on and off more frequently on your new oven. This is NORMAL.

What should I do if my racks are sticky and have become hard to slide in and out?

Over time, the racks may become hard to slide in and out. Apply a small amount of olive oil to the ends of the racks. This will work as a lubricant for easier gliding.

Why is the time flashing?

This means that the product has just been plugged in, or that it has experienced a power interruption. To clear the flashing time, touch any button and reset the clock if needed.

What should I do for hard to remove stains on my cooktop?

The cooktop should be cleaned after every use to prevent permanent staining. When cooking foods with high sugar content, such as tomato sauce, clean the stain off with a scraper while the cooktop is still warm.

Use an oven mitt when scraping to prevent burns.

Refer to the MAINTENANCE section of this owner's manual for further instruction.

During convection cooking the fan stops when I open the door. Is that normal?

Yes, this is normal. When the door is opened, the convection fan will stop until the door is closed.

Why aren't the function buttons working?

Make sure that the range is not in Lockout mode. The lock will show in the display if Lockout is activated.

To deactivate Lockout, touch and hold

Lower Clear/

Is it safe for my convection fan, broil burner or heater element to get wet during EasyClean

®

?

Yes. The convection fan, broiler burner or heater element may get a little wet during cleaning. However, direct spray onto the broil burner and heater elements is not necessary because these are self-cleaning during regular use.

My range is still dirty after running the

EasyClean ® cycle. What else should I do?

The EasyClean

®

cycle only helps to loosen light soils in your oven range to assist in hand-cleaning of your oven. It does not automatically remove all soils after the cycle. Some scrubbing of your oven range is required after running the EasyClean

®

cycle.

Do I need to use all 1 water for EasyClean

Yes. It is highly recommended that 1 cup (8 oz or

250 ml) of water be sprayed or poured on the bottom and an additional ¼ cup (2 oz or 60 ml) of water be sprayed on walls and other soiled areas to fully saturate the soils for better cleaning performance.

I tried scrubbing my oven after running

EasyClean

®

, but some soils still remain. What can

I do?

The EasyClean

®

feature works best when the soils are fully soaked and submerged in water before running the cycle and during hand-cleaning. If soils are not sufficiently soaked in water, it can negatively affect the cleaning performance. Repeat the

EasyClean

®

process using sufficient water.

Sugar-based and certain greasy soils are especially hard to clean. If some stubborn soils remain, use the

Self Clean feature to thoroughly clean your oven.

Soils on my oven walls are not coming off. How can I get my walls clean?

Soils on the side and rear walls of your oven range may be more difficult to fully soak with water. Try repeating the EasyClean

®

process with more than the ¼ cup (2 oz or 60 ml) spray recommended.

Will EasyClean completely?

®

get all of the soils and stains out

It depends on the soil type. Sugar-based and certain grease stains are especially hard to clean. Also, if stains are not sufficiently soaked in water, this can negatively affect cleaning performance. If stubborn or built-up stains remain, use the Self Clean feature.

Refer to the Self Clean section of your owner's manual.

I see smoke coming out of my oven range’s cooktop vents during EasyClean

This is normal. This is not smoke. It is actually water vapor (steam) from the water in the oven cavity. As the oven heats briefly during EasyClean

®

, the water in the cavity evaporates and escapes through the oven vents.

How often should I use EasyClean

®

?

EasyClean

can be performed as often as you wish.

EasyClean

®

works best when your oven is LIGHTLY soiled from such things as LIGHT grease splatter and small drops of cheese. Please refer to the

EasyClean

®

section in your owner's manual for more information.

What is required for EasyClean

A spray bottle filled with 1¼ cups (10 oz or 300 ml) of water, a plastic scraper, a non-scratch scrubbing pad and a towel. You should not use abrasive scrubbers such as heavy-duty scouring pads or steel wool.

Except for a towel, all of the materials you need are included in a special cleaning kit with your new range.

cycle on both ovens at the same time. Some oven surfaces will be hot after the cycle completes running. Avoid leaning or resting on the oven door glass while cleaning the oven cavities. You can not run the Self Clean cycle on both ovens at the same time.

Are there any tricks to getting some of the stubborn soils out?

Scraping the soils with a plastic scraper before and during hand-cleaning is recommended. Fully saturating soils with water is also recommended.

However, certain types of soils are harder to clean than others. For these stubborn soils, the Self Clean cycle is recommended. Consult the Self Clean section of your owner's manual for details.
