IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR RADIANT COOKTOP
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.
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.
6
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.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR GLASS
AND CERAMIC COOKTOPS
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.
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.
Avoid scratching the cooktop glass with sharp
objects.
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.
Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. Broiler
pans and inserts allow dripping fat to drain away
from the high heat of the broiler. Do not cover the
broiler insert with aluminum foil; exposed fat and
grease could ignite.
Do not cook food on the oven bottom. Always
cook in proper cookware and always use the
oven racks.

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 bake
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.
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 broil
Reducing the cooking temperature for convection broil is not recommended.
Broiling is direct heat cooking and will produce some smoke. If smoke is excessive, move the food
farther from the broiler element.
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.

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).

• Pan is smaller than the
heating area marked on
cooktop.
Figure 2:
12
Proper cookware
•
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.
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 and
Before You Call checklist section 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
and type of element underneath. The elements on your
cooktop depend on the model.
Figure 3:
•
A single radiant element has one circle.
•
A dual radiant element (some models) has two circles.
The dual radiant element may be set using only the
smaller inner element or both inner and outer elements
may be set to heat together for a larger surface.
•
A triple radiant element (some models) has three
circles. The element may be set using only the inner
element, the inner and middle elements, or all three
elements together.
•
Dual and triple elements allow more flexibility with the
size of cookware.
On indicator light
A quick glance at this indicator light when cooking is
finished is an easy check to be sure all surface elements
are turned off.
The HOT SURFACE indicator light will turn on when the
burner is hot enough to cause burns and will remain on after
the burner is turned off until the surface has cooled to a safe
temperature.

Figure 10: Bridge element knob settings
IMPORTANT
NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over two
different surface cooking areas at the same time unless
the cooktop has a bridge element and the cookware is
specifically designed for the purpose. Incorrect use may
cause the ceramic cooktop to fracture.
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
Using bridge element with griddle (some models)
IMPORTANT
A 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.
If your appliance came with a griddle you can use this
accessory to cook by using the bridge control that links the
circular elements. This will provide even heating over the
entire griddle surface when the rear single element is also
activated.
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 notes:
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.
•
Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and
then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking.
•
For efficient cooking, turn the element off several
minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow
residual heat to complete the cooking process.
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.
•
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. Each
surface element provides a constant amount of heat at
each setting.
If you would like to purchase a griddle, you can order one
from Frigidaire.com.
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.
Figure 11: Griddle
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.
CAUTION
•
The griddle should be placed carefully over the bridge
elements. When the bridge control is activated along
with the rear single element, they combine to heat the
whole surface of the griddle.
•
The griddle will be very hot. Always use oven mitts
when handling the griddle during and after cooking.
The griddle may appear to have cooled, but the
residual heat can cause burns. Allow the griddle to
cool for several minutes after the bridge has been
turned off.
19
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 12: Keep warm knob
1. Push in the knob and turn in either direction (see
Figure 12). 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.
flat
oven rack
offset
oven rack
Figure 14: Oven rack types
Figure 13: 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.
22
•
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
Convection Bake
Convection Bake uses a fan to circulate the oven's heat
uniformly around the oven. This improved heat distribution
allows for even cooking and browning results. Heated air
flows around the food from all sides.
Convection bake may be set for any oven temperature
between 300°F (148°C) and 550°F (288°C).
Benefits of convection cooking include:
•
Multiple rack baking.
•
Foods may cook faster, saving time and energy.
To set convection bake with a default oven set temperature of 350°F:
1. Press Conv key once.
2. Conv bake and 350° will appear in the display.
3. Press START.
4. The convection fan will turn on and stay on during the
cooking process.
5. To cancel convection bake at any time, press OFF.

Convection Roast
Convection roast combines a cook cycle with the convection fan and element to rapidly roast meats and poultry.
Heated air circulates around the meat from all sides, sealing in juices and flavors. Meats cooked with this feature are
crispy and brown on the outside while staying moist inside.
WARNING
Should an oven fire occur, close the oven door and turn
the oven off. If the fire continues, use a fire extinguisher.
Do not put water or flour on fire. Flour may be explosive.

SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Convection Roasting tips:
•
Preheating for convection roast is not necessary for most meats and poultry.
•
Arrange oven racks so large cuts of meat and poultry are on the lowest rack of the oven.
•
Smaller roasts and poultry should be cooked using rack position 2 or 3.
•
Since convection roast cooks faster, may be able to reduce cook times as much as 25% from the recommended time
of your recipe (check the food at this time). Then if needed, increase cook time until the desired doneness is
obtained.
•
Carefully follow your recipe’s temperature and time recommendations or refer to the convection roast recommendations for additional information.
•
Do not cover foods when dry roasting - covering will prevent the meat from browning properly.
•
When cooking meats use the broiler pan and insert. The broiler pan will catch grease spills and the insert helps
prevent grease splatters.

Cooking with Meat Probe
IMPORTANT
Use the probe feature for best results when cooking foods
such as roasts, hams, or poultry.
Do not store the probe inside the oven. Use only the
original probe provided. Connecting any other probe or
device could result in damage to the oven control, electronics, and the receptacle.
The probe feature, when set correctly, will signal an alert
when the internal food temperature reaches the desired set
target temperature.
When active, the probe displays the internal food temperature which is visible in the display during the cooking
process. This eliminates any guesswork or the need to
open the oven door to check the thermometer.
For meats like poultry and roasts, using a probe to check
internal temperature is the safest method to ensure properly
cooked food.
Before starting self clean, double check that the probe is
removed from the oven interior. Defrost frozen foods
completely before inserting the probe.
Proper placement of probe in food.
Insert the probe so that the probe tip rests inside the center
of the thickest part of meat or food (See Figure 32). For best
results, do not allow the probe temperature sensor to
contact bone, fat, gristle, or the cookware.
CAUTION
Insert

Setting the Sabbath Feature (for use on the Jewish
Sabbath and Holidays)
.
WARNING
For further assistance, guidelines for proper
usage, and a complete list of models with the
Sabbath feature, please visit the web at
www.star-k.org.
Food poisoning hazard. Do not let food sit for more than
one hour before or after cooking. Doing so can result in
food poisoning or sickness. Foods that can easily spoil
such as milk, eggs, fish, meat or poultry, should be chilled
in the refrigerator first. Even when chilled, they should not
stand in the oven for more than 1 hour before cooking
begins, and should be removed promptly when finished
cooking.
This appliance provides special settings for
use when observing the Jewish Sabbath/Holidays. Sabbath
mode disables all audible tones or visual display changes
on the oven control. Bake heating is the only cooking feature available while in the Sabbath mode. Oven controls are
locked during Sabbath mode.
You must first set the Bake feature and temperature(s)
needed for the oven, the Bake Time, and Delay Start
options (if needed). Any settings made prior to setting the
Sabbath mode will be visible in the displays. The Bake Time
option, if set prior to the Sabbath mode, will give one
audible alert at the end of Bake Time.
The Sabbath mode will override the factory preset 6 hour
energy saving mode, and the appliance will stay on until the
cooking features are cancelled. If any of the cooking features are cancelled when the appliance is in the Sabbath
mode, no audible or visual indicators will be available to
verify the cancellation.
If the oven interior lights are needed, be sure to activate
them prior to setting the Sabbath mode. Once the oven light
is turned on and the Sabbath mode is active, the oven light
will remain on until the Sabbath mode is turned off and the
oven lights are turned off. The oven door will not activate
the interior oven lights when the oven door is opened or
closed.
It is recommended that any oven temperature modification
made within an active Sabbath mode be followed with two
presses of the START key. This will insure the oven
remains on even if an attempt is made to set the oven
temperature outside of its temperature range.
If the oven temperature is set outside of the temperature
range, the oven will default to the nearest available temperature. Try to set the desired oven temperature again.
38
Important:
•
Do not attempt to activate any other oven function
except Bake while the Sabbath feature is active. The
following keys will function correctly when the Sabbath
feature is active: 0-9 number keypad, Bake, START,
and OFF. All other keys should not be used once the
Sabbath feature is active.

Setting Warmer Drawer (some models)
The purpose of the warmer drawer is to keep hot cooked
foods at serving temperatures. Examples are vegetables,
gravies, meats, casseroles, biscuits, rolls and pastries. It is
not recommended to heat cold food in the warmer drawer;
always start with hot food.
The warmer drawer may also be used to warm dinner
plates. All food placed in the warmer drawer should be
covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain quality.
WARNING
Food poisoning hazard. Do not let food sit for more than
one hour before or after cooking. Doing so can result in
food poisoning or sickness.
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 warmer drawer.
Flammable materials should not be stored in a warmer
drawer. This includes paper, plastic and cloth items, such
as cookbooks, plastic ware and towels, as well as
flammable liquids.
NOTE
•
Always start with hot food when using the warmer
drawer. Do not heat cold food in the warmer drawer.
•
The warmer drawer is equipped with a catch that may
require extra force when opening or closing the
drawer.
•
Self clean can not be set when the warmer drawer is
turned on.
Warmer drawer rack positions
The warmer drawer rack may be positioned in the drawer
two ways:
In the upright position (Figure 39) to allow low profile food
items to be placed both under and on top of the rack (for
example, rolls or biscuits on top of rack and a casserole
dish underneath).
In the downward position (Figure 40) to allow for light
weight food items and empty cookware on rack (for
example, rolls or pastries and dinner plates).
Important: Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic
wrap can melt onto the drawer surfaces and be very difficult
to clean up afterwards. Use only cooking utensils and
cookware recommended by the manufacturer for use in a
warmer drawer.

Self Clean
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 afterwards with a damp cloth. This function can be programmed for clean times between 2 and 4
hours.
Important: Before starting self clean read all following
caution and important statements before starting a self
clean cycle
•
Remove any excessive spills. Any spills on the oven
bottom should be wiped up and removed before starting
a self clean 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 high sugar or acid content
(such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices, or pie
fillings) to remain on the surface as they may leave a
dull spot even after cleaning.
•
Do not clean the oven door gasket. The woven material
in the gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should
be taken not to rub, damage, or remove the oven door
gasket. Doing so could cause damage to the door
gasket and compromise the performance of the oven.
CAUTION
•
Do not leave small children unattended near appliance. During self clean cycle, the outside of the oven
can become very hot and cause burns if touched.
•
Do not line the oven walls, racks, oven bottom, or any
part of the range with aluminum foil. This will cause
permanent damage to the oven interior and destroy
heat distribution, and will melt to the oven interior.
•
Do not force the oven door open. This will damage
the automatic door locking system. Use caution when
opening the oven door after the self clean cycle ends.
The oven may still be very hot and cause burns. To
avoid possible burns, stand to side of oven when
opening door to allow steam or hot air to escape.
•
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to
fumes given off during the self clean cycle of any
range. Move birds to a well ventilated room.
Fig. 42 Areas to clean and areas to avoid (gasket)
•
Completely remove all oven racks and any accessories
from oven cavity to avoid damage to oven racks. If the
oven racks are not removed they may discolor.
The kitchen area should be well ventilated using an
open window, ventilation fan, or exhaust hood during
the first self clean cycle. This will help eliminate the
normal odors.
•
Remove all items from the oven and cooktop including
cookware, utensils, and any aluminum foil. Aluminum
foil will not withstand high temperatures from a self
clean cycle and will melt.
Do not attempt to open the oven door when the OVEN
LOCK indicator light is flashing. Allow about 15 seconds
for the motorized door latch mechanism to completely
lock or unlock the oven door.
•
When the clean time finishes, the oven door will remain
locked until the range has cooled sufficiently. In addition
to the clean time that was programmed, you must allow
about 1 additional hour for the oven to cool before you
will be able to open the oven door.
Important notes:
•
•
•
Do not spray oven cleaners or oven protective coatings
in or around any part of the oven interior. 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 (Figure 42). These areas heat sufficiently
to burn soil on. Clean using soap and water prior to
starting Self Clean.

capture any water that may spill while wiping out.
•
A non abrasive scouring pad, stainless steel sponge,
plastic scraper, or eraser style cleaning pad (without
cleaner) can be used for difficult soils. Moisten pads
with water before use.
•
Do not leave the residual water in the oven for any
length of time.
•
Some condensation or water vapor may appear close to
the oven vent. This is normal. The oven gasket may
become damp; do not wipe dry.
•
Local water sources often contain minerals (hard
water). If hard water deposits occur, wipe cavity with a
50/50 solution of water and vinegar or 50/50 solution of
lemon juice and water.

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.
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.
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.

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
operate.
Appliance not connected. Make sure power cord is plugged properly into outlet.
Check your fuse box or breaker box to make sure the circuit is active.
Electrical power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric
company for service outage information.
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 Oven Temperatures” on page 42 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 31.
Oven smokes excessively when
broiling.
Incorrect setting. Follow the Setting Broil instructions on page 32.
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 24.
Be sure the oven controls are set properly for the desired function. See Oven
Controls starting on page 25 and review instructions for the desired cooking function
in this manual or see Entire appliance does not operate in this checklist.
Convection fan does not rotate.
Oven door is open. The convection fan will turn off if the oven door is opened when
convection is active. Close the oven door..

Problem
Cause / Solution
Electric 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.
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.
Smooth Cooktop Problems
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.
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 49.
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 48.
Self Clean Problems
Self clean does not work.
Oven control not set properly. See Setting Self Clean on page 45.
Oven racks discolored or do not
slide easily.
Oven racks left in oven cavity during self clean. Remove oven racks from oven cavity
before starting a self-clean cycle. Clean by using a mild abrasive cleaner following
manufacturer's instructions. Rinse with clean water, dry, and replace in oven.
Soil not completely removed after
self clean.
Self clean was interrupted. Review instructions on Self Cleaning on page 45.
Excessive spills on oven bottom. Remove excessive spills before starting self clean.
Failure to clean 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 are not in the
self-cleaning area, but get hot enough to burn on residue. Clean these areas before
starting the self-cleaning cycle. 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.
