IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
• Storage in or on appliance—flammable
materials should not be stored in an oven,
warmer drawer, near surface units or in the
storage drawer. This includes paper, plastic and
cloth items, such as cookbooks, plasticware and
towels, as well as flammable liquids. Do not store
explosives, such as aerosol cans, on or near the
range.
• DO NOT LEAVE CHILDREN ALONE —children
should not be left alone or unattended in the
area where appliance is in use. They should
never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the
appliance, including the storage drawer, lower broiler
drawer, warmer drawer or lower double oven.
CAUTION
• Do not store items of interest to children in the
cabinets above a range or on the backguard of
the range. Children climbing on the range to reach
items could be seriously injured.
• Do not touch surface heating units or surface
cooking elements, areas near these units or
elements, or interior surface of the oven. Both
surface heating and oven heating elements may be
hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near
surface cooking units may become hot enough to
cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or
let clothing or other flammable materials touch these
areas until they have had sufficient time to cool.
Among these areas are the cook top, surfaces facing
the cook top, the oven vent openings and surfaces
near these openings, oven door and oven door
window.
• Wear proper apparel—loose-fitting or hanging
garments should never be worn while using
the appliance. Do not let clothing or other
flammable materials contact hot surfaces.
IMPORTANT
Do not attempt to operate the range during a
power failure. If the power fails, always turn off the
range. If the range is not turned off and the power
resumes, the range will begin to operate again. Once
the power resumes, reset the clock and oven function.
4
• Do not use water or flour on grease fires—
smother the fire with a pan lid, or use baking
soda, a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
• When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat
or grease may catch fire if allowed to become too hot.
• Use dry potholders - moist or damp potholders
on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam.
Do not let potholders touch hot heating elements.
Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of a
potholder.
• Do not heat unopened food containers - buildup
of pressure may cause container to burst and
result in injury.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR OVEN
• Use care when opening oven door , lower oven
door or warmer drawer (if equipped)—Stand to
the side of the range 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. The oven vent
is located 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 interior 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.
• Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The
broiler pan and its insert allow dripping fat to drain
and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler. Do
not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil.
Exposed fat and grease could ignite.
• Protective liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line the
oven bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended
in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may
result in risk of electric shock, or fire.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SELF-CLEANING OVENS
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts
listed in this Use & Care Manual. Before self-cleaning
the oven, remove the broiler pan and any utensils or
foods from the oven.
• Do Not Use Oven Cleaners—No commercial oven
cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any part of the oven.
• 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.
• 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.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING
YOUR RANGE
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of
grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention
to the area around each surface element. Do not allow
grease to accumulate.
• Kitchen cleaners and aerosols—Always follow the
manufacturer’s recommended directions for use.
Be aware that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols
may ignite causing damage and injury.
• Clean ventilating hoods frequently—Grease
should not be allowed to accumulate on the hood
or filter. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for
cleaning hoods.
FOR CERAMIC-GLASS COOK TOP MODELS
• Do not cook on broken cook top—If cook top should
break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate
the broken cook top and create a risk of electric shock.
Contact a qualified technician immediately.
• Clean cook top 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 noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR COOKTOP
• Know which knob controls each surface heating
unit. Place a 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 units.
• Never leave surface elements unattended at high
heat settings—Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry
may melt.
• Do not immerse or soak removable heating
elements—Heating elements should never be
immersed in water. Heating elements clean themselves
during normal operation.
• 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 change in temperature.
Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for cook top
use.
• When flaming foods under a ventilating hood,
turn the fan on.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement
Act requires the Governor of California to publish a
list of substances known to the state to cause cancer,
birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires
businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to
such substances.

The flat oven rack or flat handle oven rack (some
models) may be used for most cooking needs.
The offset oven rack (some models) is designed to place
the base of the rack about 1/2 of a rack position lower
than normal. This rack design provides several additional
possible locations between the standard positions.
Air circulation in the oven
For best 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. Hot air must be able to circulate
around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat
to reach around the food.
Baking layer cakes with 1 or 2 oven racks

BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
About the ceramic glass cooktop
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements
located below the surface of the glass. The design of the
ceramic cooktop outlines the area of the surface element
underneath. Be sure to match the pan size with the
diameter of the element outline on the cooktop and only
flat-bottomed cookware should be used.
element ON indicator light
The type and size of cookware, the number of surface
elements in use and their settings are all factors that will
affect the amount of heat that will spread to areas beyond
the surface elements. The areas surrounding the elements
may become hot enough to cause burns.
Fig. 1
About the radiant surface elements
hot surface indicator light
The element temperature rises gradually and evenly.
As the temperature rises, the element will glow red. To
maintain the selected setting the element will cycle ON
and OFF. The heating element retains enough heat to
provide a uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle.
For efficient cooking, turn OFF the element several
minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow residual
heat to complete the cooking process.
Element on & hot surface indicator lights
Your appliance is equipped with two different types of
radiant surface control indicator lights that will glow on
the control panel — the on indicator and the hot surface
indicator lights.
The element on indicator light will glow when any surface
element is turned ON. A quick glance at this indicator
light after cooking is an easy check to be sure the surface
controls are turned OFF (See Fig. 1).
The hot surface indicator light will glow when any
surface cooking area heats up and will remain on until
the glass cooktop has cooled to a MODERATE level (See
Fig. 2).
8
Fig. 2
NOTES
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 smoothtop. Cycling
at the HI setting is normal and will occur more often if
the cookware is too small for the radiant element or if
the cookware bottom is not flat.
Be sure to read the detailed instructions for ceramic
glass cooktop cleaning in the Care & Cleaning and
Before You Call checklist sections of this Use & Care
Manual.
BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Types of cooktop elements
The ceramic glass cooktop has radiant surface elements
located below the surface of the glass. The patterns on
the ceramic glass will outline the size and type of element
available. The single radiant element will have one round
outline pattern shown. The dual radiant element is flexible
because you may set just the smaller inner portion as a
single element or both inner and outer portions can be set
to heat together (See Fig. 1).
Dual radiant
surface control
(some models)
Using proper cookware
The size and type of cookware used will influence the
setting needed for best cooking results. Be sure to follow
the recommendations for using proper cookware as
illustrated in Figs. 2 & 3.
Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good
contact with the entire surface heating element (See
Fig. 2). Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the
bottom of the cookware (See Fig. 3). For more information
about the ceramic cooktop see “Cooktop cleaning &
maintenance” in the Care & Cleaning section.
Single radiant
surface control
Fig. 1
Cookware material types
The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly
heat is transferred from the surface element to the pan
bottom. The most popular materials available are:
Aluminum - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of
food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware
resists staining & pitting). If aluminum pans slide across
the ceramic cooktop, they may leave metal marks which
will resemble scratches. Remove these marks immediately.
Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily.
May leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see Aluminum).
Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking
results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor however will retain
heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is
reached. Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.
Fig. 2
Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating characteristics
will vary depending on base material. Porcelain-enamel
coating must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic
cooktops.
Glass - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for
ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass.

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Single radiant surface elements (all models)
To operate the single radiant element:
1. Place correctly sized cookware on single radiant
surface element.
2. Push in and turn the surface control knob in either
direction (Fig. 2) to the desired setting (Refer to the
Suggested radiant surface element settings
table Fig. 1). 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 spot. Use the graphics
provided as a guide and adjust the control knob as
needed (See Fig. 2). Each surface element provides
a constant amount of heat at each setting. 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.
3. When cooking is complete, turn the radiant surface
element OFF before removing the cookware.

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
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.
NOTES
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 on indicator light will glow when one or more
elements are turned ON. A quick glance at this indicator
light when cooking is finished is an easy check to be
sure all control knobs are turned OFF. The hot surface
indicator light will continue to glow AFTER the control
knob is turned to the “OFF” position and will glow until
the heating surface area has cooled sufficiently.
SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Dual radiant surface elements (some models)

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) website and
be sure to read all the information they have available as
well as follow their recommendations for home canning
procedures.
• Use only quality flat bottom canners when home
canning. Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom
(see “Cookware material types” in the Before setting
surface controls section).
• Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no
ridges that radiate from the bottom center when home
canning using a ceramic cooktop.
• 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.
• 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.
IMPORTANT
NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over 2 different surface cooking areas at the same time. This may
cause the ceramic cooktop to fracture.

SELF-CLEANING
Self-Cleaning
A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high 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.
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 (See Fig. 1).
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 spillovers. 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 spillovers
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 (See Fig.
1).
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.
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.
Fig. 1
CAUTION
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.
IMPORTANT

CARE & CLEANING
Cooktop maintenance
IMPORTANT
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 or copper clad bottom pans on the
cooktop can cause metal markings on the cooktop surface.
These marks should be removed immediately after the
cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning cream.
Metal marks can become permanent if not removed prior
to future use.
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough
or dirty 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 bottom;
replace with clean cookware before using.
• 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.
22
Cooktop cleaning
CAUTION
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are
turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
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 glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner
directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a
non-abrasive plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad, 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 surface clean.
CARE & CLEANING
Cooktop cleaning (cont’d)
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately if
spilled or melted onto the ceramic cooktop surface.
Permanent damage (such as pitting of the cooktop
surface) may occur if not removed immediately.
After turning the surface elements OFF, use a razor blade
scraper or a metal spatula with a mitt and scrape the soil
from the hot surface (as illustrated). Allow the cooktop to
cool, and use the same method for heavy or burned on
soils.
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.
Do not use the following on the cooktop:
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such
as metal and some nylon pads. They may scratch the
cooktop, making it more difficult to clean.
• Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach,
ammonia or oven cleaners, as they may etch or discolor
the cooktop.
• Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as
they can leave soil or lint on the cooktop which can
burn and cause discoloration.

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.
Caution for aluminum use on the cooktop
• Aluminum Foil - Use of aluminum foil on a hot
cooktop will damage the ceramic cooktop. Do not use
thin aluminum cooking utensils or allow aluminum foil to
touch the ceramic cooktop under ANY circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils - The melting point of aluminum
is much lower than that of other metals. Care must be
taken when aluminum pots or pans are used on the
cooktop. If 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.
Replacing the oven light
The light bulb is located at the rear of the oven and is

Solutions to common problems •
Problem
BEFORE YOU CALL
Solution
Poor baking results.
• Many factors affect baking results. Make sure the proper oven rack
position is used. Center food in the oven and space pans to allow air to
circulate. Allow the oven to preheat to the set temperature before placing
food in the oven. Try adjusting the recipe’s recommended temperature or
baking time. If you feel the oven is too hot or cool, see “Adjusting Oven
Temperature” section in this Use & Care Guide.
Appliance is not level.
• Be sure floor is level, strong & stable enough to adequately support
range.
• If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
• Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the
oven rack. Adjust leveling legs at base of appliance until the rack is level.
• Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear not level. Be sure
cabinets are square & have sufficient room for appliance clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily. Appliance
must be accessible for service.
• Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly. Contact builder or installer to
make appliance accessible.
• Carpet interferes with appliance. Provide sufficient space so appliance can
be lifted over carpet.
Surface element too hot or not hot
enough.
• Incorrect control setting. Be sure the correct control is ON for the element
that you are attempting to use.
Surface element does not heat.
• Lightweight or warped pans used. 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
& medium-weight pans heat evenly. Because lightweight pans heat
unevenly, foods may burn easily.
Entire appliance does not operate.
• The time of day is not set. The time of day must first be set in order to
operate the oven. See “Setting the clock” in the Setting oven controls
section.
• Make sure cord/plug is plugged correctly into outlet.
• Service wiring is not complete. Contact your dealer, installing agent or
authorized service agent.
• Electrical power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local
electric company for service.
Oven portion of appliance does not
operate.
• Be sure the oven controls are set properly for the desired cooking feature.
See Setting Oven Controls in this manual or read the instructions
“Entire appliance does not operate” in this checklist.
Oven light does not work.
• Be sure the light is secure in the socket. Also see “Changing & replacing the
oven light” section.
Self-clean cycle does not work.
• Oven control not set properly. Follow instructions under Self-clean.
• Self-clean cycle was interrupted. Follow steps under “Stopping or
Interrupting a Self-cleaning cycle” under Self-clean.
25
BEFORE YOU CALL • Solutions to common problems
Problem
Solution
Soil not completely removed after selfcleaning cycle.
• Failure to clean bottom, front top of oven, frame of oven or door area
outside oven seal. These areas are not in the self-cleaning area, but get
hot enough to burn on residue. Clean these areas before the self-cleaning
cycle is started. Burned-on residue can be cleaned with a stiff nylon brush
and water or a nylon scrubber. Be careful not to damage the oven gasket.
Oven smokes excessively during broiling.
• Incorrect setting. Follow broiling instructions in Setting Oven
Controls.
• Make sure oven door is opened to broil stop position.
• Meat too close to the broil element. Reposition the broil rack to provide
proper clearance between the meat & the element. Preheat the broil
element for searing.
• Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut
remaining fatty edges to prevent curling, but do not cut into lean.
• Broiler pan and insert wrong side up and grease not draining. Always
place grid on the broiler pan with ribs up & slots down to allow grease
to drip into pan (some models).
Flames inside oven or smoking from
oven vent.
Oven control panel beeps & displays
any F code error (for example F10, F11,
F13, F14, F15, F30, F31 or F90).
Scratches or abrasions on cooktop
surface.
• Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary
when broiling frequently. Old grease or food spatters cause excessive
smoking.
• Excessive spillovers in oven. For example this will happen for pie
spillovers or large amounts of grease left on the oven bottom. Wipe up
excessive spillovers before starting oven. If flames or excessive smoke
are present see “About broiling” in the Setting Oven Controls section.
• Oven control has detected a fault or error condition. Press clear off to
clear the display & stop beeping. Try the bake or broil feature again. If
the F code error repeats, remove power from appliance, wait 5 minutes
and then repower appliance and set clock for the time of day. Try the
bake or broil feature again. If the fault recurs, record fault and call for
service.
• Coarse particles such as salt or sand between cooktop and utensils
can cause scratches. Be sure cooktop surface and bottoms of utensils
are clean before usage. Small scratches do not affect cooking and will
become less visible with time.
• Cleaning materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been
used. See “Cooktop cleaning and maintenance” in the Care & Cleaning
section of this Use & Care Guide.
• Cookware with rough bottom has been used. Use smooth, flat-bottomed
cookware.
Brown streaks or specks on cooktop
surface.
• Sliding or scraping of metal utensils on cooktop surface. Do not slide
metal utensils on cooktop surface. Use a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaner
to remove the marks. See “Cooktop cleaning and maintenance” in the
Care & Cleaning section.
• Boilovers are cooked onto surface. Use razor blade scraper to remove soil.
See “Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance” in the Care & Cleaning section.
Areas of discoloration with metallic sheen
on cooktop surface.
• Mineral deposits from water and food. Remove using a ceramic-glass cooktop
cleaner. Use cookware with clean, dry bottoms.
Metal marks on the cooktop.
