IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR GAS COOKTOP
CAUTION
Use Proper Flame Size — Adjust flame size so
it does not extend beyond the edge of the
utensil. The use of undersized utensils will
expose a portion of the burner flame to direct
contact and may result in ignition of clothing.
Proper relationship of utensil to flame will also
improve efficiency.
Know which knob or key controls each surface
heating area. Place cookware with food on the
cooking area before turning it on. Turn the
cooking area off before removing the cookware.
Use proper pan size. This appliance is equipped
with one or more surface units of different sizes.
Select cookware with flat bottoms that match the
surface unit heating element. The use of undersized cookware may expose a portion of the
flame to direct contact and may result in the
ignition of clothing or other items. Using the
proper cookware on the cooking areas will
improve efficiency.
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
burners
Never leave surface burners unattended at high
heat settings — Boil overs cause smoking and
greasy spill overs that may ignite, or a pan that
has boiled dry may melt.
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

Cooking Tips
Use these additional tips to get the best results from your appliance.
Cooking
Tips
Baking
Rack placement
Follow the instructions in “SETTING OVEN CONTROLS” on starting on page 20.
When using only one rack, place the rack so the food is in the center of the oven.
Preheat
Fully preheat the oven before baking items like cookies, cakes, biscuits and breads. Insert food
immediately after the beep.
Checking food
Use the window and oven light when checking food. Opening the door may reduce baking performance.
Bake or Convection Bake
Convection bake is the best function to use for baking on multiple racks. For best performance, see
“Setting Quick Bake” on page 24.
11
COOKING RECOMMENDATIONS
Cooking
Food placement
Tips
Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) of space between bakeware for proper air circulation.
Broiling / Roasting
Broiling pan
For best results when broiling, use a broil pan with a broil pan insert designed to drain the fat from
the food, help avoid spatter, and reduce smoking. The broiler pan will catch grease spills, and the
insert helps prevent grease splatters.
If a broiler pan and insert are not supplied with this appliance, they may be purchased from Frigidaire.com.
Convection Cooking
Convection
attributes
Convection cooking uses a fan to circulate hot air around the oven and food. It browns food more
evenly and reduces hot spots in the oven.
Convection saves time when using multiple racks or cooking several food items at once.
Convection bake
Reduce cooking temperature by 25° F (13-14° C) from the recipe unless the recipe is written for
convection baking.
Preheat the oven for best results.
Convection roast
Convection roast is best for meats and does not require preheating for most meats and poultry.
Reducing the cooking temperature for convection roast is not recommended. Carefully follow your
recipe’s temperature and time recommendations, adjusting the cooking time if the recipe does not
specify convection roasting time.
Since convection roast cooks faster, cook time may be reduced by 25% to 40% depending on food
type. You can reduce cook times by 25% from the recommended time of your recipe, and check the
food at this time. If needed, continue cooking until the desired doneness is obtained.
Use a meat probe if available with your appliance. Meat probes are also available from most grocery
and home goods stores.
Arrange oven racks so large cuts of meat and poultry are on the lowest rack of the oven.
Do not cover foods when dry roasting - covering will prevent the meat from browning properly.
When cooking meats, use the broiler pan and insert or a roasting rack. The broiler pan will catch
grease spills and the insert helps prevent grease splatters. If you do not have one of these accessories, they may be purchased from Frigidaire.com.

Proper cookware
BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Cookware Material Types
Gas surface burner types
The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly
heat is transferred from the surface burner to the pan
bottom. The most popular materials available are:
The cooktop is equipped with gas surface burners with
different BTU ratings. The ability to heat food quickly and in
large amounts increases as the burner size increases.
•
Aluminum - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of
food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum
cookware resists staining and pitting).
•
Small burners are best used for low-flame heating of
small amounts of food.
•
•
Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily
(See Aluminum).
Standard burners can be used for most surface cooking
needs.
•
•
Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking
results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
•
Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor that retains heat very
well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is
reached.
The largest burner is best used for bringing large quantities of liquid rapidly up to temperature or when
preparing larger quantities of food. The large burner is
located at the right front position on the cooktop.
•
Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating characteristics
will vary depending on base material.
•
Glass - Slow heat conductor.
Regardless of size, always select cookware that is suitable
for the amount and type of food being prepared. Select a
burner and set the flame size appropriately for the pan.
Never allow flames to extend beyond the outer edge of the
pan.
CAUTION
Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and
pepper shakers, spoon holders, or plastic wrappings on
the cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or
ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could catch
fire if placed too close to the range cooktop.
IMPORTANT
Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt
on the range cooktop. If these items melt they may
damage the cooktop.
CAUTION
Do not straddle cookware over two burner areas unless
the cookware is specifically designed for that purpose.

and flame size appropriate for the cookware size.
•
The standard size burner or burners may be used for
most surface cooking needs.
•
Small burners are best used for low-flame heating of
small amounts of food.
•
Large burners are best for bringing large quantities of
liquid to temperature or heating larger quantities of
food.
CAUTION
Do not place flammable items such as plastic wrappings,
spoon holders, or plastic salt and pepper shakers on the
cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or
ignite. Potholders, towels, or wooden spoons could catch
fire if placed too close to the surface burners.
Setting a surface burner:
1. Place cooking utensil on center of surface burner grate.
Be sure the cooking utensil rests stable on the burner
grate.
2. Push the burner’s surface control knob in and turn
counterclockwise out of the OFF position (Figure 7).
3. Release the surface control knob and rotate to the LITE
position ( ). Visually check that the burner has a
steady gas flame.
4. Once the surface burner has a flame, push the surface
control knob in and turn counterclockwise to the desired
flame size setting. Adjust the flame as needed using the
knob markings.
IMPORTANT
•
NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over two
different surface cooking areas at the same time
unless the cookware is specifically designed for the
purpose.
•
DO NOT cook with a surface control knob left in the
lite position ( ). The electronic ignitor will continue to
spark. Turn the control knob out of the lite position
and adjust the flame size.
•
Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that can
melt on the range cooktop. If items melt, they may
permanently damage the appearance of the cooktop.
16
Figure 7:
Surface control knob
NOTE
•
When setting a surface control knob to the lite
position, all of the electronic surface ignitors will spark
at the same time. However, only the surface burner
you are setting will ignite.
•
In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface
burners may be lit manually. To light a surface burner,
hold a lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn
the surface control knob to lite. Once the burner
ignites, push in and turn knob out of lite then to the
desired flame setting. Use caution when lighting
surface burners manually.
SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Set proper burner flame size
The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue and hardly visible in a
well-lighted room. Each cone of flame should be steady and
sharp. Adjust or clean the burner if flame is yellow-orange.
For most cooking: start on the highest setting and then
turn to a lower setting to complete the process. Use the
recommendations below as a guide for determining proper
flame size for various types of cooking (Figure 9).
For deep fat frying: use a thermometer and adjust the
surface knob accordingly. If the fat is too cool, the food will
absorb the fat and be greasy. If the fat is too hot, the food
will brown so quickly that the center will be under-cooked.
Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the
food will neither brown nor cook properly.
Flame size
Type of cooking
High flame
Start most foods; bring water to a boil;
pan broiling
Medium flame
Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces,
gravies; steaming
Low flame
Keep foods cooking; poaching; stewing
These settings are based on medium-weight metal or
aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using
other types of pans.
Figure 9:
Recommended flame settings for cooking
CAUTION
Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the
cooking utensil. A higher flame wastes energy, and
increases your risk of being burned by the flame
(Figure 8).

Home Canning
Be sure to read and observe all the following points when
home canning with your appliance. Check with the USDA
(United States Department of Agriculture) Web site and be
sure to read all the information they have available as well
as follow their recommendations for home canning procedures.
•
Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no ridges
that radiate from the bottom center when home
canning. Heat is spread more evenly when the bottom
surface is flat. Use a straight-edge to check canner
bottom.
•
Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed
1 inch beyond the surface element markings or burner.
•
It is recommended to use smaller diameter canners on
electric coil and ceramic glass cooktops and to center
canners on the burner grates.
•
Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more
quickly.
•
Use the highest heat seating when first bringing the
water to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to
lowest possible setting to maintain that boil.
•
Use tested recipes and follow instructions carefully.
Check with your local Cooperative Agricultural
Extension Service or a manufacturer of glass jars for
the latest canning information.
•
It is best to can small amounts and light loads.
•
Do not leave water bath or pressure canners on high
heat for an extended amount of time.
Figure 10: Griddle
The griddle is a versatile accessory that is perfect for
cooking foods that require large flat surfaces such as
pancakes, French toast, grilled sandwiches, bacon, and
also for cooking different foods at the same time.
After use, let the griddle cool before washing. Hand wash
with hot soapy water. Do not soak. Dry thoroughly. Do not
put a griddle in a dishwasher.
If you would like to purchase a griddle, you can order one
from Frigidaire.com.
Using the griddle:
Place the griddle securely on top of the burner grates.
Preheat the griddle for 5 minutes on medium to medium low
setting. Slow preheat ensures even heat distribution during
the cooking process. DO NOT preheat the griddle on HI
setting. Preheating on HI may warp the griddle and prevent
even heat distribution.

BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Oven Vent Location
Types of oven racks
The oven is vented as shown below. When the oven is on,
warm air is released through the vent. This venting is
necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good
baking results. Do not block oven vent. Never close off the
openings with aluminium foil or any other material. Steam or
moisture may appear near the oven vent. This is normal.

oven rack
offset
oven rack
Figure 12: Oven rack types
Figure 11: Oven vent
WARNING
Protective Liners — Do not use aluminum foil or any
other material or liners to line the oven bottom, walls,
racks or any other part of the range. Doing so will alter the
heat distribution, produce poor baking results, and
possibly cause permanent damage to the oven interior.
Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of
electric shock or fire. During self clean, temperatures in
the oven will be hot enough to melt foil.
CAUTION
•
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using the
oven. When cooking, the oven interior, oven exterior,
oven racks, and cooktop will become very hot which
can cause burns.
•
Remove all oven racks before starting a self clean
cycle. If oven racks are left inside the oven during a
cleaning cycle, the slide ability of the oven racks may
be damaged and all of the oven racks will lose their
shiny finish.
•
To prevent possible damage to the oven, do not
attempt to close the oven door until all the oven racks
are fully positioned back inside the oven cavity.
•
Flat oven racks may be used for most cooking needs
and may be placed in most oven rack positions.
•
The offset oven rack (some models) provides additional step down positions from the standard flat rack
design. The offset design positions the base of the rack
about ½ of a rack position lower than the flat rack and
may be used in most oven rack positions. To maximize
oven cooking space, place the bottom oven rack in the
lowest rack position for baking or roasting large cuts of
meat.
Removing, replacing, and arranging flat or offset
oven racks
Always arrange the oven racks when the oven is cool.
To remove - Pull the oven rack straight forward until it
reaches the stop position. Lift up front of oven rack slightly
and slide out.
To replace - Place the oven rack on the rack guides on
both sides of oven walls. Tilt the front of oven rack upward
slightly and slide the oven rack back into place. Be sure
oven racks are level before using.

SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Self Clean
A self cleaning oven cleans itself with temperatures well
above normal cooking temperatures which eliminate soils
completely or reduces them to a fine powdered ash you can
wipe away with a damp cloth.
While the oven is in operation, the oven heats to temperature much higher than those used in normal cooking.
Sounds of metal expansion and contraction are normal.
Odor is also normal because the food soil is being removed.
Smoke may appear through the oven vent.
CAUTION
During the self cleaning cycle, the outside of the range
can become very hot to the touch. Do not leave small
children unattended near the appliance.
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.
IMPORTANT
Adhere to the following self clean precautions:
•
Do not use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings
in or around any part of the oven interior.
•
Do not clean the oven door gasket (Figure 20). 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 and will melt.
•
Completely remove all oven racks and any accessories. If the oven racks are not removed, they will lose
their special coating properties and no longer slide in
and out of the oven cavity easily.
•
Remove any excessive spills. Any spills on the oven
bottom should be wiped-up and removed before
starting the self cleaning cycle. To clean, use hot,
soapy water and a cloth. Large spills 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.
These areas are shown in white (Figure 20).
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).
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.
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 complete.
The oven may still be very hot.

SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Steam Clean
The Steam Clean feature offers a chemical free and time
saving method to assist in the routine cleaning of light soils.
For heavier baked on soils use the Self Clean feature.
CAUTION
Do not add bleach, ammonia, oven cleaner, or any other
abrasive household cleaners to the water used for Steam
Clean.
8. Take care opening the door when the steam clean is
finished. Stand to the side of the oven out of the way of

is canceled, the oven control display will show “SPr" for 5 seconds. The oven door will
remain locked until the oven has cooled down below cleaning temperature. If the
oven is below cleaning temperature, the user can start another clean cycle immediately. If the oven is in cleaning temperature range, another self-clean cycle can be set
once the door unlocks (up to 4 hours).
Other Problems

Be sure the floor is level, strong, and stable enough to adequately support the range.

oven rack. Adjust the leveling legs at the base of the appliance until the rack is level.
