IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR RADIANT COOKTOP
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR GLASS
AND CERAMIC COOKTOPS
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.
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.
Cookware 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
cookware should be positioned so that it is turned
inward, and does not extend over other cooking
areas.
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 size. Using the proper cookware on
the cooking area will improve efficiency.
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.
Improper cookware may break due to sudden
changes in temperature. Check the cookware
manufacturer’s recommendations for cooktop
use.
Never leave surface elements unattended. Boilovers may cause smoking and greasy spills that
may ignite. A pan that has boiled dry could be
damaged and may damage the cooktop.
Do not use a searing grill meant for use with a
broiler pan on the cooktop. The searing grill is not
designed for use on the cooktop. Doing so may
result in a fire.
When you are flaming foods under a ventilating
hood, turn on the fan.
6
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.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR OVEN
Protective liners—Do not use aluminum foil, aftermarket oven liners, or any other materials or
devices to line oven bottom, oven racks, or any
other part of the appliance. Only use aluminum as
recommended for baking, such as lining
cookware or as a cover placed on food. Any other
use of protective liners or aluminum foil may
result in a risk of electric shock or fire or a short
circuit.
Use care when opening oven door, lower oven
door, or warmer drawer (some models). 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.
Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. Touching
surfaces in this area when the oven is on may
cause severe burns. Do not place plastic or heatsensitive items on or near the oven vent. These
items can 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, do not let
potholder contact hot burner or element in oven.
Use potholders and grasp the rack with both
hands to reposition. Remove all cookware and
utensils before moving the rack.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Using Proper Cookware
Cookware Material Types
The size and type of cookware used will influence the heat
setting needed for best cooking results. Be sure to follow
the recommendations for using proper cookware as illustrated in Figure 1 and Figure 2.
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:
Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom
of the cookware (see
Figure 1). Cookware should
have flat bottoms that make
good contact with the entire
surface heating element (see
Figure 2).

conducts heat well.
• Easy to clean.
• Always match pot
diameter to element
size.
• Pan is smaller than the
heating area marked on
cooktop.
Figure 2:
•
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
(see Aluminum).
•
Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking
results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
•
Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor that will retain heat
very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is
reached. If cast iron pans slide across the ceramic
cooktop, they may leave metal marks which will
resemble scratches. Remove these marks immediately.
•
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.
IMPORTANT
Do not place empty aluminum, glass, or porcelain-enamel
coated cookware on the ceramic cooktop. The melting
point of cookware made with these materials may be
reached quickly, especially if left empty, and they may
bond to the ceramic cooktop. If the cookware melts it will
damage the cooktop. Follow all the cookware manufacturer’s recommendations for use and care of cookware.

BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
About the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
About the Radiant Surface Elements
The ceramic glass cooktop has heating elements below a
smooth glass surface. The designs on the ceramic cooktop
outline the areas of the surface elements underneath.
Always match the pan size with the diameter of the element
outline on the cooktop. Only flat-bottomed cookware should
be used.
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.
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply a
ceramic cooktop cleaning cream (available in most
hardware, grocery and department stores) to the ceramic
surface. Clean and buff with a clean paper towel. This will
make cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. Cooktop
cleaning creams leave a protective finish on the glass to
help prevent scratches and abrasions.
The type and size of cookware, the number of surface
elements in use, and their settings will all 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.
For efficient cooking, turn the element off several minutes
before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to
complete the cooking process.
CAUTION
•
Surface elements may appear to have cooled after
they have been turned off. The element surface may
still be hot, and burns may occur if the element or
surrounding area is touched before it has cooled to a
safe temperature.
•
Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt
and pepper shakers, spoon holders, or plastic
wrapping on top of the range 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 elements.
•
Do not allow aluminum foil, or any material that can
melt, to make contact with the ceramic glass cooktop.
If these items melt on the cooktop, they will damage
the ceramic cooktop.
IMPORTANT
•
The cooktop should not be used as a cutting board or
work surface.
•
Dropping heavy or hard objects on the cooktop may
crack it.
•
Placing food directly on the smoothtop surface
(without a cooking utensil) is not recommended, as
difficult cleaning will result, and foods may smoke and
cause potential fire hazard.
•
Always lift cookware before moving on the ceramic
glass cooktop. Any cookware that has a rough or dirty
bottom can scratch the ceramic cooktop. Always start
with clean cookware.
NOTE
White glass cooktops only - Due to the high intensity of
heat generated by the surface elements, the glass
surface may discolor when the element is turned off. This
is normal and the glass will return to its original white
color after it has completely cooled down.
12
NOTE
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 smooth top. Cycling at the
HI setting is normal and can occur if the cookware is too
small for the radiant element or if the cookware bottom is
not flat.
Be sure to read detailed instructions for ceramic glass
cooktop cleaning in the “Care and Cleaning” section
(page 24) and “Before You Call” checklist section
(page 30) of this Use and Care Guide.
BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Element On and Hot Surface Indicator Lights
Types of ceramic cooktop elements
The ELEMENT ON indicator light will turn on when one or
more elements are turned on.
The circles on the ceramic glass cooktop outline the size

3. When cooking is complete, turn the knob to OFF before
removing the cookware.
Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then
turn to a lower setting to finish cooking. The surface control
knobs do not have to be set exactly on a particular mark.
Use the marks as a guide and adjust the control knob as
needed.
A glowing red surface heating area extending beyond the
bottom edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is too
small for the surface heating area.
You may switch from either single or dual element setting at
any time during cooking. See “Suggested radiant surface
element settings” on page 14.
Figure 7:
CAUTION
•
•
Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled
after they have been turned off. The glass surface
may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass
surface is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt
and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic
wrappings on top of the range 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 elements.
IMPORTANT
Dual element knob settings
NOTE
•
The size and type of utensil used and the amount and
type of food being cooked will influence the setting
needed for best cooking results.
•
The Element ON indicator lights will turn on when one
or more elements are turned ON. A quick glance at
these indicator lights when finished cooking is an
easy check to be sure all control knobs are turned
OFF. The Hot Surface indicator light will remain on
AFTER the control knob is turned to the “OFF”
position and will stay on until the heating surface area
has cooled sufficiently.
Do not allow aluminum foil or ANY material that can melt
to make contact with the ceramic glass cooktop. If these
items melt on the cooktop, they will damage the ceramic
cooktop.

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Keep warm (some models)
Use the keep warm feature to keep cooked foods hot.
Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat
cold food on the keep warm zone. All food placed on the
warming zone should be covered with a lid to maintain
quality.
For best results, when warming pastries or breads, the
cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape.
Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt
onto the surface and be very difficult to clean. Use only
dishware, utensils, and cookware recommended for oven
and cooktop use on the keep warm zone.
Setting the keep warm control:
Figure 8:
1. Push in the knob and turn in either direction (see
Figure 8). The temperatures are designated by hi and
lo. However, the control can be set at any position
between hi and lo for different levels of warming.
Temperature selection - Refer to the recommended keep
warm zone settings table (see Table 2). If a particular food
is not listed, start with the medium level and adjust as
needed. Most foods can be kept at serving temperatures by
using the medium level.
2. When ready to serve, turn the control to OFF. The hot
surface indicator light will remain on until the warm zone
cools.

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.

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.

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.
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.
•
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.
18
•
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
Adjusting the oven temperature
Your appliance has been factory calibrated and tested to
ensure an accurate baking temperature. For the first few
uses, follow your recipe times and temperature recommendations carefully. If you think the oven is cooking too hot or
too cool for your recipe times, you can adjust the control so
the oven cooks hotter or cooler than the temperature
displayed.

Ceramic cooktop
See “Cooktop Maintenance” on page 26.
25
CARE AND CLEANING
Cooktop Maintenance
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining
your ceramic glass cooktop.
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply a
ceramic cooktop cleaning cream (available in most
hardware, grocery, and department stores) to the ceramic
surface. Clean and buff with a clean paper towel. This will
make cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. Cooktop
cleaning creams leave a protective finish on the glass to
help prevent scratches and abrasions.
Sliding aluminum, cast iron, or copper bottomed pans on
the cooktop can cause metal markings on the cooktop
surface. These marks should be removed immediately after
the cooktop has cooled using 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.
•
Use cookware with dirt or dirt build up on the bottom;
always use clean cookware.
•
Use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in
the kitchen.
•
Cook foods directly on the cooktop surface without a
pan.
•
Drop heavy or hard objects on the ceramic glass
cooktop; they may cause it to crack.
Cooktop Cleaning
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.
CAUTION
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are
turned to OFF and the cooktop is cool. The glass surface
could be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is
touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
For light to moderate soil:
For light to moderate soil: Apply a few drops of cooktop
cleaning cream directly to the cooktop. Use a clean 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:
Apply a few drops of cooktop cleaning cream directly to the
soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a non-abrasive
cleaning tool, applying pressure as needed. Do not use the
pad you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.
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 the surface clean.

CARE AND CLEANING
Cooktop Maintenance (cont’d)
IMPORTANT
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you
use an abrasive type cleaning pad. Only use cleaning
products that have been specifically designed for ceramic
glass cooktops.
Cleaning under bake element (some models)
The bake element is located in the lower oven cavity. For
some models, if the lower bake element is visible it may be
tilted up for easier access to the oven bottom for cleaning.
Remove the oven racks before raising the element. Be
careful not to raise the element more than 4 or 5 inches
from the resting position.
Aluminum Foil and Utensils
WARNING
Never cover any slots, holes, or passages in the oven
bottom or cover an entire oven rack with materials such
as aluminum foil. Aluminum foil linings may trap heat,
causing a fire hazard.
WARNING
Protective Liners — Do not use aluminum foil to line the
oven bottom. Improper installation of these liners may
result in risk of electric shock or fire.
Figure 17: Lift bake element
IMPORTANT
•
Aluminum foil - Use of aluminum foil on a hot cooktop
can damage the cooktop. Do not use thin aluminum
cooking utensils or allow aluminum foil to touch the
surface elements 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 aluminum pans are allowed to boil dry
when using the cooktop, not only will the utensil be
damaged or destroyed, but it may fuse to, break, or
mark the ceramic glass surface, permanently
damaging the cooktop surface.

Oven Baking
For best cooking results, preheat the oven before baking cookies, breads, cakes, pies, pastries, etc. There is no need to
preheat the oven for roasting meat or baking casseroles. The cooking times and temperatures needed to bake a product
may vary slightly from your previously owned appliance.

Solutions to Common Problems:
Before you call for service, review the following list. It may save you time and expense. Possible solutions are provided
with the problem listed.
Problem
Cause / Solution
Entire appliance does not

Oven Problems
Poor baking results.
Many factors affect baking results. Use proper oven rack position. Center food in the
oven and space pans to allow air to circulate. Preheat the oven to the set temperature
before placing food in the oven. Try adjusting the recipe's recommended temperature
or baking time. See “Adjusting the oven temperature” on page 23 if you feel the oven
is too hot or too cool.
Flames inside oven or smoking
from oven vent.
Excessive spills in oven. Grease or food spilled onto the oven bottom or oven cavity.
Wipe up excessive spills before starting the oven. If flames or excessive smoke are
present when using broil, see “Setting Broil” on page 22.
Oven smokes excessively when
broiling.
Incorrect setting. Follow the “Setting Broil” instructions on page 22.
Meat too close to the broil element or burner. Reposition the broil pan to provide
proper clearance between the meat and broil element or burner. Remove excess fat
from meat. Cut remaining fatty edges to prevent curling, but do not cut into lean.
Grease build up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary when broiling
frequently. Grease or food splatters will cause excessive smoking.
Oven control panel beeps and
displays any F or E code error.
Oven control has detected a fault or error condition. To clear the error, press the OFF
key on the control panel. Once the error code is cleared, try the bake or broil function.
If the F or E code error repeats, turn off the power to appliance, wait 5 minutes, and
then repower the appliance. Set the clock with correct time of day. Try the bake or
broil function again. If the fault recurs, press the OFF key to clear.
Oven portion of appliance does
not operate.
The time of day is not set. The clock must be set in order to operate the oven. See
“Setting the Clock” on page 19.
Be sure the oven controls are set properly for the desired function. See “Setting Oven
Controls” starting on page 19 and review instructions for the desired cooking function
in this manual or see “Entire appliance does not operate.” in this checklist.

BEFORE YOU CALL
Problem
Cause / Solution
Cooktop Problems
Surface element is too hot or not
hot enough.
Incorrect surface control setting. Adjust power level setting.
Surface element does not heat or
does not heat evenly.
Be sure the correct surface control knob is turned on for the element needed.
Areas of discoloration with
metallic sheen on cooktop
surface.
Mineral deposits from water and food. Remove them using cooktop cleaning creme
applied to the ceramic surface. Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or sponge.
Scratches or abrasions on
cooktop surface.
Coarse particles such as salt or hardened soils between cooktop and utensils can
cause scratches. Be sure the cooktop surface and bottoms of utensils are clean
before use. Small scratches do not affect cooking and will become less visible with
time.
Cookware is light weight or warped. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or heavyweight cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped pans. Cookware materials and
weight of the material affect heating. Heavy and medium-weight pans heat evenly.
Because lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily.
Cleaning materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been used.
Apply cooktop cleaning creme to the ceramic surface. Buff with a non-abrasive cloth
or sponge.
Cookware with a rough bottom was used. Use smooth, flat-bottomed cookware.
Metal marks on the cooktop.
Sliding or scraping of metal utensils on cooktop surface. Do not slide metal utensils
on the cooktop surface. Apply cooktop cleaning creme to the ceramic surface. Buff
with a non-abrasive cloth or sponge. For more information, see “Cooktop Maintenance” on page 26.
Brown streaks or specks on
cooktop surface.
Boil overs are cooked onto the surface. When cooktop is cool, use a razor blade
scraper to remove soil. For more information see “Cooktop Maintenance” on page 26.
Other Problems
Appliance is not level.
Be sure the floor is level, strong, and stable enough to adequately support the range.
If the floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
Poor installation. Place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Place a level on the
oven rack. Adjust the leveling legs at the base of the appliance until the rack is level.
Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear not level. Be sure cabinets are
square and have sufficient room for appliance clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily.
Appliance must be accessible for
