Warnings
To Prevent Fire or Smoke Damage
• Be sure all packing materials are removed from the appliance before
operating it.
• Keep area around appliance clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and materials.
• If appliance is installed near a window, proper precautions should be taken
to prevent curtains from blowing over burners.
• NEVER leave any items on the rangetop. The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable items and may increase pressure in closed
containers which may cause them to burst.
• Many aerosol-type spray cans are EXPLOSIVE when exposed to heat and
may be highly flammable. Avoid their use or storage near an appliance.
• Many plastics are vulnerable to heat. Keep plastics away from parts of the appliance that may become warm or hot. DO NOT leave
plastic items on
the rangetop as they may melt or soften if left too close to the vent or a lighted surface burner.
• Combustible items (paper, plastic, etc.) may ignite and metallic items
may become hot and cause burns. DO NOT pour spirits over hot foods.
DO NOT leave oven unsupervised when drying herbs, breads, mushrooms, etc; fire hazard.
In Case of Fire
Turn off appliance and ventilating hood to avoid spreading the flame. Extinguish flame then turn on hood to remove smoke and odor.
• Cooktop: Smother fire or flame in a pan with a lid or cookie sheet.
• NEVER pick up or move a flaming pan.
• Oven: Smother fire or flame by closing the oven door. DO NOT use water
on grease fires. Use baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher to smother fire or flame.
• GREASE–Grease is flammable and should be handled carefully. DO NOT use water on grease fires. Flaming grease can be
extinguished with
baking soda or, if available, a multipurpose dry chemical or foam type extinguisher. Let fat cool before attempting to handle it.
DO NOT allow grease to collect around the oven or in vents. Wipe up spillovers immediately.
Child Safety
• NEVER leave children alone or unsupervised near the appliance when it is in use or is still hot.
• NEVER allow children to sit or stand on any part of the appliance as they could be injured or burned.
• DO NOT store items of interest to children over the unit. Children climbing to reach items could be seriously injured.
Child Safety (cont.)
• Children must be taught that the appliance and utensils in it can be hot.
Let hot utensils cool in a safe place, out of reach of small children.
Children should be taught that an appliance is not a toy. Children should not be allowed to play with controls or other parts of the
appliance.
Cooking Safety
• To eliminate the hazard of reaching over hot surface burners, cabinet storage should not be provided directly above a unit. If storage is
provided, it should be limited to items which are used infrequently and which are safely stored in an area subjected to heat from an
appliance. Temperatures may be unsafe for some items, such as volatile liquids, cleaners or
aerosol sprays.
• ALWAYS place a pan on a surface burner before turning it on. Be sure
you know which knob controls which surface burner. Make sure the correct burner is turned on and that the burner has ignited. When
cooking is completed, turn burner off before removing pan to prevent exposure to burner flame.
• ALWAYS adjust surface burner flame so that it does not extend beyond the bottom edge of the pan. An excessive flame is hazardous,
wastes energy and may damage the appliance, pan or cabinets above the appliance.
This is based on safety considerations.
• NEVER leave a surface cooking operation unattended especially when using a high heat setting or when deep fat frying. Boilovers
cause smoking and greasy spillovers may ignite. Clean up greasy spills as soon as possible.
DO NOT use high heat for extended cooking operations.
• DO NOT heat unopened food containers, build up of pressure may cause the container to explode and result in injury.
• Use dry, sturdy pot-holders. Damp pot-holders may cause burns from steam. Dishtowels or other substitutes should NEVER be used as
potholders
because they can trail across hot surface burners and ignite or get caught on appliance parts.
• ALWAYS let quantities of hot fat used for deep fat frying cool before attempting to move or handle.
• DO NOT let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate in or near the appliance, hood or vent fan. Clean hood frequently
to prevent grease from accumulating on hood or filter. When flaming foods under the hood, turn the fan off.
4
Cooking Safety (cont.)
• NEVER wear garments made of flammable material or loose fitting or
long-sleeved apparel while cooking. Clothing may ignite or catch utensil handles. DO NOT drape towels or materials on oven door
handles. These items could ignite and cause burns.
• ALWAYS place oven racks in the desired positions while oven is cool.
Slide oven rack out to add or remove food, using dry, sturdy pot-holders. ALWAYS avoid reaching into the oven to add or remove
food. If a rack must be moved while hot, use a dry pot-holder.
• ALWAYS turn the oven off at the end of cooking.
• Use care when opening the oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before moving or replacing food.
• NEVER use aluminum foil to cover oven racks or oven bottom. This could result in risk of electric shock, fire, or damage to the
appliance. Use foil only as directed in this guide.
• DO NOT cook directly on the oven bottom. This could result in damage to the appliance. Always use the oven racks when cooking in
the oven.
• PREPARED FOOD WARNING: Follow food manufacturer's instructions. If a plastic frozen food container and/or its cover distorts, warps,
or is otherwise damaged during cooking, immediately discard the food and its container. The food could be contaminated.
• If you are “flaming” liquor or other spirits under an exhaust, TURN THE FAN OFF. The draft could cause the flames to spread
out of control.
• Once the unit has been installed as outlined in the Installation Instructions, it is important that the fresh air supply is not
obstructed. The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat and moisture in the room in which it is installed.
Ensure that the kitchen is well-ventilated. Keep natural venting holes open or install a mechanical ventilation device. Prolonged or
intensive use of the appliance may call for additional (such as opening a window) or more effective ventilation (such as increasing
the level of a mechanical ventilation if present).
Utensil Safety
• Use pans with flat bottoms and handles that are easily grasped and stay cool. Avoid using unstable, warped, easily tipped or loosehandled pans. Also avoid using pans, especially small pans, with heavy handles as they could be unstable and easily tip. Pans that are
heavy to move when filled with food may also be hazardous.
• Be sure utensil is large enough to properly contain food and avoid boilovers. Pan size is particularly important in deep fat frying. Be sure
pan will accommodate the volume of food that is to be added as well as the bubble action of fat.
• To minimize burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, DO NOT extend handles
over adjacent surface burners. ALWAYS turn pan handles toward the side or back of the appliance, not out into the room where they
are easily hit or reached by small children.
• NEVER let a pan boil dry as this could damage the utensil and the appliance.
• Follow the manufacturer's directions when using oven cooking bags.
• Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic or glazed utensils are
suitable for rangetop surface or oven usage without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Follow manufacturer's
instructions when
using glass.
• This appliance has been tested for safe performance using conventional cookware. DO NOT use any devices or accessories that are not
specifically recommended in this guide. DO NOT use eyelid covers for the surface units, stovetop grills, or add-on oven convection
systems. The use of devices or accessories that are not expressly recommended in this manual can create serious safety hazards, result
in performance problems, and reduce the life of the components of the appliance.
• The flame of the burner should be adjusted to just cover the bottom of the pan or pot. Excessive burner setting may cause
scorching of adjacent counter-top surfaces, as well as the outside of the utensil. This is based on safety considerations.
Heating Elements
• NEVER touch oven bake and broil burner areas or interior surfaces of oven.
• Bake and broil burners may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near burners and interior surfaces of an oven may become
hot enough to cause burns.
• During and after use, DO NOT touch or let clothing or other flammable materials contact heating elements, areas near elements, or
interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the oven may become hot enough to cause
burns, such as the oven vent opening, the surface near the vent opening, and the oven door window.

rangetop cooking surface during a clean cycle should be avoided.
Important Safety Notice and Warning
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) requires the Governor of California to publish
a list of substances known to the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers
of potential exposures to such substances. Users of this appliance are hereby warned that when the oven is engaged in the self-clean
cycle, there may be some low-level exposure to some of the listed substances, including carbon monoxide. Exposure to these
substances can be minimized by properly venting the oven to the outdoors by opening the windows and/or door in the room where
the appliance is located during the self-clean cycle.
Important notice regarding pet birds:
NEVER keep pet birds in the kitchen or in rooms where the fumes from the kitchen could reach. Birds have a very sensitive
respiratory system. Fumes released during an oven self-cleaning cycle may be harmful or fatal to birds. Fumes released due to
overheated cooking oil, fat, margarine and overheated non-stick cookware may be equally harmful.
About Your Appliance
• For proper oven performance and operation, DO NOT block or obstruct the oven vent duct located on the right side of the air grille.
• Avoid touching oven vent area while oven is on and for several minutes after oven is turned off. When the oven is in use, the vent and
surrounding area become hot enough to cause burns. After oven is turned off, DO NOT touch the oven vent or surrounding areas until
they have had sufficient time to cool.
• Other potentially hot surfaces include rangetop, areas facing the rangetop, oven vent, surfaces near the vent opening, oven door, areas
around the oven door and oven window.
• The misuse of oven doors (e.g. stepping, sitting, or leaning on them) can result in potential hazards and/or injuries.
Power Failure
If power failure occurs, the electric igniters will not work. No attempt should be made to operate the appliance during a power failure. Make
sure the oven control is in the “OFF” position.
Momentary power failure can occur unnoticed. The range is affected only when the power is interrupted. When it comes back on, the range
will function properly without any adjustments. A “brown-out” may or may not affect range operation, depending on how severe the power
loss is.
WARNING
WARNING
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD

room to prevent potential hazard to the user and damage to
the appliance. Also, DO NOT use the rangetop or oven as a
storage area for food or cooking utensils.
DO NOT touch a hot oven light bulb with a damp
cloth as the bulb could break. Should the bulb
break, disconnect power to the appliance before removing
bulb to avoid electrical shock.
6
WARNING
CAUTION
NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven
bottom or cover an entire rack with materials such as
aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the oven
and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil
linings may also trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
BURN HAZARD
The oven door, especially the glass, can get hot.
Danger of burning: DO NOT touch the glass!
WARNING
WARNING
This range features a self-cleaning cycle. During this cycle,
the oven reaches elevated temperatures in order to burn off
soil and deposits.
A powder ash residue is left in the bottom of the oven after
completion of the self-clean cycle.
DO NOT cook directly on the oven bottom. This could result
in damage to your appliance. Always use the oven racks
when cooking in the oven.
Note: DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners inside the
oven. Use of these cleaners can produce hazardous fumes
or can damage the porcelain finishes. DO NOT line the oven
with aluminum foil or other materials. These items can melt
or burn during a self-clean cycle, causing permanent
damage to the oven.
WARNING
BURN OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK
HAZARD
Make sure all controls are OFF and oven is
COOL before cleaning. Failure to do so can
result in burns or electrical shock.
WARNING
DO NOT touch the exterior portions of the oven after selfcleaning cycle has begun, since some parts become
extremely hot to the touch!
CAUTION
To avoid sickness and food waste, DO NOT allow defrosted
food to remain in the oven for more than two hours.
During the first few times the self-cleaning feature is used,
there may be some odor and smoking from the “curing” of
the binder in the high-density insulation used in the oven.
When the insulation is thoroughly cured, this odor will
disappear. During subsequent self-cleaning cycles, you may
sense an odor characteristic of high temperatures.
NOTICE
DO NOT turn the Temperature Control on during
defrosting. Turning the convection fan on will accelerate
the natural defrosting of the food without the heat.
KEEP THE KITCHEN WELL-VENTED DURING THE
SELF-CLEAN CYCLE.
WARNING
CAUTION

Operation
Surface Operation
Lighting Burners
All burners are ignited by electric ignition. There are no open-flame, “standing” pilots.
Surface Burners-Automatic Re-ignition
To light the surface burners, push and turn the appropriate control knob counter clockwise to any
position. This control is both a gas valve and an electric switch. Burners will ignite at any “ON”
position with the automatic re-ignition system. If the flame goes out for any reason, the burners will
automatically reignite if the gas is still flowing. When gas is permitted to flow to the burners, the
electric igniters start sparking. On all surface igniters you should hear a “clicking” sound. If you do not, turn off the control
and check that the unit is plugged in and that the fuse or circuit breaker is not blown or tripped.
Within a few moments, enough gas will have traveled to the burner to light. When the burner lights, turn the burner control
to any position to adjust the flame size. Setting the proper flame height for the desired cooking process and selecting the
correct cooking vessel will result in superior cooking performance, while also saving time and energy.
Surface Cooking Tips
Your range is equipped with a variety of different sized surface burners. Below is a guide for which burners work best for
certain cooking applications:
Use

Front left / Front right
18,000 BTU burner
Best for bringing large quantities of liquid to
temperature and when preparing large
quantities of food
Rear left 8,000 BTU burner
Best for simmering delicate sauces, etc.
Center 9,000 BTU burner
Best for use with the reversible griddle/grill
accessory
Rear Right 12,000 BTU burner
Best used for most standard surface cooking
needs

Surface Operation
Surface Cooking Tips (cont.)
• Use low or medium flame heights when cooking in vessels that are poor conductors of heat, such as glass, ceramic, and
cast-iron. Reduce the flame height until it covers approximately 1/3 of the cooking vessel diameter. This will ensure more
even heating within the cooking vessel and reduce the likelihood of burning or scorching the food.
• Reduce the flame if it is extending beyond the bottom of the cooking vessel. A flame that extends along the sides of the
vessel is potentially dangerous, heats the utensil handle and kitchen instead of the food, and wastes energy.
• Reduce the flame height to the minimum level necessary to perform the desired cooking process. Remember that food
cooks just as quickly at a gentle boil as it does at a rolling boil. Maintaining a higher boil than is necessary wastes energy,
cooks away moisture, and causes a loss in food flavor and nutrient level.
• The minimum pot or pan (vessel) diameter recommended is 6”
(15 cm) on the larger burners. Pots or pans as small as 4” (10 cm) should be used on the smaller burners.

Cooking Vessels
Each cook has his or her own preference for the particular cooking vessels that are most appropriate for the type of cooking
being done. Any and all cooking vessels are suitable for use in the range and it is not necessary to replace your present
domestic vessels with commercial cookware. This is a matter of personal choice. As with any cookware, yours should be in
good condition and free from excessive dents on the bottom to provide maximum performance and convenience.
Note: When using big pots and/or high flames, it is recommended to use the front burners. There is more room in the front and
potential cleanup at rear of appliance due to staining or discoloration will be minimized.

Using the Oven
Conventional and Convection Cooking
Because of variations in food density, surface texture and consistency, some foods may be prepared more successfully using
the conventional bake setting. For this reason, conventional baking is recommended when preparing baked goods such as
custard. The user may find other foods that are also prepared more consistently in conventional bake. It is recommended to
use this function for single-rack baking.
Convection Cooking Tips
Convection cooking is a cooking technique which utilizes fan-forced
air to circulate throughout the entire oven cavity creating the optimum
cooking environment. Cooking with convection is intended when performing multi-rack baking and for heavier foods. Below
are some tips which will allow you to get the best results out of your oven when cooking with convection.
• As a general rule, to convert conventional recipes to convection recipes, reduce the temperature by 25°F (10°C) when
using a convection cooking function.
• Cooking times for standard baking and convection baking will be the same. However, if using convection to cook a single
item or smaller load, then it is possible to have 10-15% reduction in cooking time. (Remember convection cooking is
designed for multi-rack baking or cooking large loads.)
• If cooking items which require longer than 45 minutes, then it is possible to see a 10-15% reduction in cooking time.
• A major benefit of convection cooking is the ability to prepare foods in quantity. The uniform air circulation makes this
possible. Foods that can be prepared on two of three racks at the same time
include: pizza, cakes, cookies, biscuits, muffins, rolls, and frozen convenience foods.
• For three-rack baking, use any combination of rack positions 2, 3, 4, and 5. For two-rack baking, use rack positions 2 and
4 or positions 3 and 5. Remember that the racks are numbered from bottom to top.
11
Operation
Each oven is equipped with three oven racks (some models include 1 or more TruGlide racks). All ovens have six rack
positions. Position 6 is the farthest from the oven bottom. Position 1 is the closest to the oven bottom. The racks can be
easily removed and arranged at various levels. For best results with conventional baking, DO NOT use more than one rack
at a time. It is also recommended, when using two racks, to bake with the racks in positions 2 and 4 or positions 3 and 5.
Baking
BAKE
(Natural Airflow Bake)
Full power heat is radiated from the U-shaped bake burners in the bottom of the
oven cavity and is circulated with natural airflow. This function is recommended for
single rack baking. Many cookbooks contain recipes to be cooked in the conventional
manner. Conventional baking is suitable for dishes that require a high temperature.
Use this setting for baking and casseroles.
To Use BAKE Function
natural airflow bake
1. Arrange the oven rack in the desired position before turning
oven on.
2. Set the oven function selector to "Bake" and the temperature control knob to
desired temperature
3. Close the door.
CONVECTION BAKE
Heat is radiated from the U- shaped bake burners in the bottom of the oven cavity.
The heated air is circulated by one motorized fan in the rear of the oven providing a
more even heat distribution. Multiple rack use is possible for the largest baking job.
When roasting, cool air is quickly replaced—searing meats on the outside and
retaining more juices and natural flavor on the inside with less shrinkage. This even
circulation of air equalizes the temperature throughout the oven cavity and eliminates
the hot and cold spots found in conventional ovens.
Operation
convection bake
To Use CONVECTION BAKE Function
1. Arrange the oven rack in the desired position before turning oven on.
2. Set the oven function selector to “Convection Bake” and the temperature control knob to desired temperature
3. Set the oven temperature control knob to desired temperature and turn on the convection fan.
4. Close the door.
Baking Tips
• Make sure the oven racks are in the desired position before you turn on the oven.
• DO NOT open the door frequently during baking. Look through the door window to check doneness whenever possible. If
you must open the door, the best time is during the last quarter of the baking time.
• Bake to the shortest time suggested and check for doneness before adding more time. For baked goods, a stainless steel
knife placed in the center of the product should come out clean when done.
• Use the pan size and type recommended by the recipe to ensure best results. Cakes, quick breads, muffins, and cookies
should be baked in shiny, reflective pans for light, golden crusts. Avoid the use of old, darkened pans. Warped, dented,
stainless steel and tin-coated pans heat unevenly and will not give uniform baking results.
Pan Placement Tips
• When using large (15" x 13") flat pans or trays that cover most of the rack, rack positions 2 or 3 produce the best results.
• When baking on more than one rack, it is recommended to use the 3rd and 5th position for more consistent even baking.
• Stagger pans in opposite directions when two racks and several pans are used in conventional bake. If possible, no pan

Solving Baking Problems
Baking problems can occur for many reasons. Check the chart below for the causes and remedies for the most common
problems. It is important to remember that the temperature setting and cooking times you are accustomed to using with
your previous oven may vary slightly from those required with this oven. If you find this to be true,
it is necessary for you to adjust your recipes and cooking times accordingly.

Broiling
BROIL
Heat radiates from the broiler located at the top of the oven cavity. The distance
between the foods and the broil elements determines broiling speed. For “fast”
broiling, food may be as close as 2 inches
(5 cm) to the broil element. “Fast” broiling is best for meats where rare to medium
doneness is desired. Use this setting for broiling small and average cuts of meat.
infrared broil
CONVECTION BROIL
The top burner operates at full power. This function is exactly the same as regular
broiling with the additional benefit of air circulation by the motorized fan in the rear
of the oven. Smoke is reduced since the airflow also reduces peak temperatures on
the food. With Convection Broil, the broil burner comes on and runs for 3 minutes
and then shuts off. Then, the convection fan comes on for 1 minute and circulates
the heated air. This cycle repeats over and over until the broil cycle is shut off.
Use this setting for broiling thick cuts of meats.
convection broil
Operation
Broiling Instructions
Broiling is a dry-heat cooking method using direct or radiant heat.
It is used for small, individualized cuts such as steaks, chops, and patties. Broiling speed is determined by the distance
between the food and the broil element. Choose the rack position based on
desired results.
Conventional broiling is most successful for cuts of meat 1-2 inches thick and is also more suitable for flat pieces of meat.
Convection broiling has the advantage of broiling food slightly quicker than conventional. Convection broiling of meats
produces better results, especially for thick cuts. The meat sears on the outside and retains more juices and natural flavor
inside with less shrinkage.
To Use Broil or Convection Broil
1. Arrange the oven rack in the desired position before turning broiler on.
2. Center the food on a cold broiler pan. Place broiler pan in oven.
3. Set the oven function selector to “Broil” or “Convection Broil”.
4. Set the oven temperature control knob to “Broil”.
5. Close the door. There is not a detent to hold the door in the open broil stop position as only closed door broiling is
recommended for this range. With closed door broiling the broil element might cycle on and off if an extended broiling
time is required.
Note: With Convection Broil, the broil burner comes on and runs for 3 minutes and then shuts off. Then, the convection
fan comes on for 1 minute and circulates the heated air. This cycle repeats over and over until the broil cycle is shut off.
Broiling Tips
• ALWAYS use a broiler pan and grid for broiling. They are designed to provide drainage of excess liquid and fat away from
the cooking surface to help prevent splatter, smoke, and fire.
• To keep meat from curling, slit fatty edge.
• Brush chicken and fish with butter several times as they broil to prevent drying out. To prevent sticking, lightly grease
broiler tray.
• Broil on first side for slightly more than half the recommended time, season, and turn. Season second side just before
removing.
• ALWAYS pull rack out to stop position before turning or removing food.
• Use tongs or a spatula to turn meats. NEVER pierce meat with a fork, as this allows the juices to escape.
• Remove the broiler pan from the oven when you remove the food. Drippings will bake onto the pan if it is left in the
heated oven after broiling.
16
Broiling
Rack Positions for Broiling
The broiler uses heat rays to help cook the food.
Because these rays travel only in straight lines, the
effective cooking area of the broiler is reduced
when using the higher rack positions. At high-rack
positions, the rays cannot reach all corners of the
broiler grid, so larger pieces of meat might not broil
sufficiently at the outer edges. The effective
cooking areas on the broiler grid for each rack
positions are shown.

Convection Dehydrate
Convection Dehydrate
This oven is designed not only to cook, but also to dehydrate fruits and vegetables. Warm air is circulated by a motorized
fan in the rear of the oven and over a period of time, the water is removed from
the food by evaporation. Removal of water inhibits growth of microorganisms and retards the activity of enzymes. It is
important to remember that dehydration does not improve the quality, so only fresh, top-quality foods should be used.
1. Prepare the food as recommended.
2. Arrange the food on drying racks (not included with the oven; contact a local store handling speciality cooking utensils).
3. Set the temperature control to 200°F (93.3°C) and turn the selector to “Convection Bake”.
CAUTION
You must carefully check the food during the dehydration process to
ensure that it does not catch fire.
Convection Defrost
Convection Defrost
Operation
Air is circulated by a motorized fan in the rear of the oven. The fan accelerates natural defrosting of the food without heat.
To avoid sickness and food waste, DO NOT allow defrosted food to remain in the oven for more than two hours.
1. Place the frozen food on a baking sheet.
2. Turn the selector to “Convection Bake” and set the temperature
to “OFF”.
WARNING
To avoid sickness and food waste, DO NOT allow defrosted food to
remain in the oven for more than two hours.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Any piece of equipment works better and lasts longer when maintained properly and kept clean. Cooking equipment is no
exception. Your range must be kept clean and maintained properly. Before cleaning, make sure all controls are in the “OFF”
position. Disconnect power if you are going to clean thoroughly with water.
Surface Burner
Wipe up spill-overs as soon as possible after they occur and before
they get a chance to burn in and cook solid. In the event of a spillover, follow these steps:
• Allow the burner and grate to cool to a safe temperature level.
• Lift off the burner grate. Wash in warm soapy water.
• Remove the burner cap and burner head and clean.

Oven Surfaces
Several different finishes have been used in your oven.
NEVER USE AMMONIA, STEEL WOOL PADS OR ABRASIVE CLOTHS, CLEANSERS, OVEN CLEANERS, OR ABRASIVE
POWDERS. THEY CAN PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR OVEN.
Self-Clean
Your oven features a self-clean cycle for the oven interior. See the "Self-Clean Cycle" section for complete instructions.
19
Product Care
The base should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water at the end of each cooling period. DO NOT use steel wool,
abrasive cloths, cleanser, or powders. To remove encrusted materials, soak the area with a hot towel to loosen the material,
then use a wooden nylon spatula.
DO NOT use a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape the aluminum base.
• Wipe up any spills which remain on the sealed top surface.
• Replace burner cap, burner head, and grates after drying thoroughly.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Control Knobs
MAKE SURE ALL THE CONTROL KNOBS POINT TO THE OFF POSITION BEFORE REMOVING. Pull the knobs straight off.
Wash in detergent and warm water. Dry completely and replace by pushing firmly onto stem. DO NOT use any cleaners
containing ammonia or abrasives. They could remove the graphics from the knob.
Stainless Steel Parts
All stainless steel body parts should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water at the end of each cooling period and with a liquid
cleaner designed for that material when soapy water will not do the job. DO NOT use steel wool, abrasive cloths, cleansers, or
powders. If necessary, scrape stainless steel to remove encrusted materials, soak the area with hot towels to loosen the material,
then use a wooden or nylon spatula or scraper. DO NOT use a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape stainless
steel. DO NOT permit citrus or tomato juice to remain on stainless steel surface, as citric acid will permanently discolor stainless
steel. Wipe up any spills immediately.
Glass Surfaces
Clean with detergent and warm water. Glass cleaner can be used to remove fingerprints. If using glass cleaner ammonia,
make sure that it does not run down on exterior door surface.
Oven Racks
Clean with detergent and hot water. Stubborn spots can be scoured with a soap-filled steel wool pad.
Self-Clean Cycle
WARNING
BURN OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Make sure all controls are OFF and oven is COOL
before cleaning. Failure to do so can result in burns
or electrical shock.
Product Care
CAUTION
DO NOT touch the exterior portions of the oven after self-cleaning cycle
has begun, since some parts become extremely hot to the touch! During
the first few times the self-cleaning feature is used, there may be some
odor and smoking from the curing of the binder in the high-density
insulation used in the oven. When the insulation is thoroughly cured, this
odor will disappear. During subsequent self-cleaning cycles, you may
sense an odor characteristic of high temperatures. Keep the kitchen wellvented during the self-cleaning cycle.
This oven features an automatic pyrolytic self-cleaning cycle. During this cycle, the oven reaches elevated temperatures in
order to burn-off soil and deposits. An integral smoke eliminator helps reduce odors associated with the soil burn-off. A
powder ash residue is left in the bottom of the oven after completion of the self-clean cycle. The door latch is automatically
activated after selecting the self-clean setting. The latch ensures that the door cannot be opened while the oven interior is
at clean temperatures.
Before starting the Self-Clean cycle:
1. Remove the oven racks, and any other items/utensils from the oven. The high heat generated during the cleaning cycle
can discolor, warp, and damage these items. DO NOT use foil or liners in the oven. During the self-clean cycle, foil can
burn or melt and damage the oven surface.
2. Wipe off any large spills from the oven bottom and sides. NEVER use oven cleaners inside a self-cleaning oven or on
raised portions of the door.
3. Some areas of the oven must be cleaned by hand before the cycle begins. Soils in these areas will be baked on and very
difficult to clean if not removed first. Clean the door up to the gasket, the door frame, and up to 2 inches inside the frame
with detergent and hot water. Rinse thoroughly and dry.
20
Self-Clean Cycle
To start the Self-Clean cycle:
1. Close the door completely.
2. Turn the oven selector knob clockwise to the “SELF CLEAN” mode.
3. Turn the temperature control knob to the clean setting stop. At this time, the clean indicator light will come on. Within 30
seconds the automatic door latch engages and the oven indicator light comes on. The oven indicator light will remain on
until the oven reaches the self-clean temperature and will then cycle on and off during the self-clean cycle. When the
oven reaches the elevated temperature needed for self-clean, the door lock indicator light comes on.
4. The door lock indicator light will remain on until the self-clean is completed or interrupted and the oven temperature
drops to a safe temperature. A complete cycle is approximately 2-1/2 hours with an additional 30 minutes needed for the
oven to cool down enough for the door latch to disengage.
Note: A fan noise will be heard during the self-clean cycle and will continue to run for the 2-1/2 hour duration of the selfclean cycle.
5. When the cycle is completed, turn both the oven selector and temperature control knob to the “OFF” position. When the
oven has completely cooled, open door and remove any ash from the oven surfaces with a damp cloth.
To stop the Self-Clean cycle:
To cancel or interrupt the self-cleaning cycle, turn both the temperature control knob and the oven function selector knob to
“OFF”. When the oven temperature drops to a safe temperature, the automatic door latch will release and the oven door
can be opened. When the oven has completely cooled, remove any ash from the oven surfaces with a damp sponge or
cloth.
