Important Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
COOKTOP
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
OVEN
Use Proper Flame Size — Adjust flame size
so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil. The
use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the
burner flame to direct contact and may result in ignition of
clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to flame will also
improve efficiency.
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.
• Use care when opening oven door , warmer drawer or
lower oven door — 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.
• Know which knob controls each surface burner. Place a
pan of food on the burner before turning it on, and turn
the burner off before removing the pan.
• Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. The oven vent is
located below the backguard. 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.
• Always turn knob to the full LITE position when igniting
top burners. Visually check that burner has lit. Then
adjust the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge
of the utensil.
• Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend
over adjacent surface burners — To reduce the risk of
burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due
to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of the
utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward,
and does not extend over adjacent surface burners.
• Placement of 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.
• Never leave surface burners 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 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.
• 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.
• Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil.
Exposed fat and grease could ignite.
• When flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn the
fan on.

Before Setting Oven Controls
Oven vent location
Types of oven racks
The oven vent is located below the control panel (Refer to
Fig. 1). When the oven is on, warm air passes through this
vent. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in
the oven and good baking results. Do not block the oven
vent.

Removing, replacing and arranging racks
The flat oven rack or flat handle oven rack (on some
models) may be used for most cooking needs.
Always use oven mitts when using the
oven. When cooking using the oven, the oven interior,
oven racks and cooktop will become very hot which can
cause burns.
The offset oven rack (on some models) will place the base
of the rack about 1/2 of a rack position lower than a flat
oven rack. This feature provides several additional possible
oven rack positions.
Arranging - always arrange
the oven racks when the oven
is cool (prior to operating the
oven).
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.
To remove - pull the rack
forward until it stops. Lift up
front of rack and slide out.
To replace - fit the rack onto
the guides on the oven walls.
Tilt the front of the rack
upward and slide the rack
back into place.

Before Setting Surface Controls
Check burner cap placement before operating the
surface burners
Burner cap
To prevent flare-ups and avoid creation of
harmful by-products, do not use the cooktop without all
burner caps properly installed to insure proper ignition and
gas flame size.
Burner cap lip
Burner head
Fig. 1
It is very important to be sure that all surface burner caps
and burner grates are properly installed and in the correct
locations BEFORE operating the cooktop burners.
Remember:
• Always keep surface burner caps in place whenever
using a surface burner.
• When placing the burner caps, be sure that all burner
caps are seated firmly and rest level on top of burner
heads.
• For proper flow of gas and ignition of burners DO NOT
allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other material
to enter the gas orifice port opening.
On round style burners, the burner cap lip (See Fig. 1)
should fit snug into the center of burner head and rest level.
Refer to Figs. 2 & 3 for correct and incorrect burner cap
placement. Once in place, you may check the fit by gently
sliding the burner cap from side to side (Fig. 4) to be sure it
is centered and firmly seated. When the burner cap lip
makes contact inside the center of the burner head you will
be able to hear the burner cap click. Please note that the
burner cap should NOT move off the center of the burner
head when sliding from side to side.

Check and be sure that all oval style (some models) burner
caps are correctly in place on oval burner heads.
Installing burner grates
Do not use the surface burners without the
burner caps and burner grates properly installed. Missing
pieces or improper installation may lead to spills, burns, or
damage to your range and cookware.
Make sure the burner grates are properly placed on the
cooktop before using the surface burners. The grates are
designed to rest inside the recess on the cooktop.
To install burner grates, place grates flat-side down and
align into the cooktop recess. Grates should rest flush
against each other and against the sides of the recess.

Before Setting Surface Controls
Using proper cookware
Setting proper burner flame size
DO NOT place flammable items such as
plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic
wrappings on the cooktop when it is in use. These items
could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons
could catch fire if placed too close to the range cooktop.
Never extend the flame beyond the outer
edge of the cooking utensil. A higher flame wastes energy,
and increases your risk of being burned by the flame.
The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment.
A good flame is clear, blue and hardly visible in a well-lighted
room. Each cone of flame should be steady and sharp. Adjust
or clean burner if flame is yellow-orange.
Important: DO NOT place aluminum foil, or ANY material
that can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt they
may damage the cooktop.
For best cooking results,
cookware should have flat
bottoms that rest level on the
burner grate. Before using
cookware, check for flatness by
rotating a ruler across the
bottom of the cookware (Fig. 1).
For most cooking; start on the highest setting and then turn
to a lower setting to complete the process. Use the
recommendations below as a guide for determining proper
flame size for various types of cooking (Fig. 2)
For deep fat frying; use a thermometer and adjust the
surface knob accordingly. If the fat is too cool, the food
will absorb the fat and be greasy. If the fat is too hot, the
food will brown so quickly that the center will be under
cooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at
once as the food will neither brown or cook properly.
Fig. 1
Please note: The size and type of utensil used, and the
amount and type of food being cooked will influence the
burner flame setting needed for best cooking results.
Flame size*
Type of cooking
The most popular materials available are:
High flame
Start most foods; bring water to a boil;
pan broiling.
Aluminum - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food
will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware
resists staining & pitting).
Medium flame
Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces,
gravies; steaming.
Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily.
Low flame
Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.
Cookware material types

Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results.
Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
*These settings are based for medium-weight metal or
aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using
other types of pans.
Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor however will retain heat
very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is
reached.
Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating characteristics will
vary depending on base material.

Setting Surface Controls
Setting surface burners
Your gas appliance may be equipped with different sized
surface burners. The ability to heat food quicker and in
larger volumes increases as the burner size increases. It is
important to select cookware that is suitable for the amount
and type of food being prepared.
The smaller SIMMER burner (on some models) is best suited
for simmering delicate sauces, etc.
The standard size burners may be used for most surface
cooking needs. Some models are equipped with a center
burner.
The larger POWER burners (on some models) or TURBO
BOIL burner (on some models) are recommended for
bringing large quantities of liquid to temperature and when
preparing larger quantities of food.
Fig. 1
Do not place flammable items such as
plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic
wrappings on the cooktop when it is in use. These items
could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons
could catch fire if placed too close to the range cooktop.
To set surface burners:
1.
Place cooking utensil on center of surface burner grate.
Be sure the cooking utensil sets stable on the burner
grate.
2. Push the desired surface control knob in and turn
counterclockwise out of the OFF position (Fig. 1).
3. Release the surface control knob and rotate to the LITE
position. Visually check that the burner has lit.
4. Once the burner has a flame, push the control knob in and
turn counterclockwise to the desired flame size. Use the
control knob markings and adjust the flame as needed.
Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY
material that can melt on the range cooktop. If these items
melt they may permanently damage the cooktop surface.
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.
Important notes:
• DO NOT cook with the surface control knob left in the
LITE position. The electronic ignitor will continue to spark
if the control knob setting remains in the LITE position .
• When setting any surface control knob to the LITE
position, all electronic surface ignitors will spark at the
same time. However, only the surface burner you are
setting will ignite.
• Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning.
Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom.
• Use only a completely flat bottom canner.
• Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed 1
inch beyond the surface element markings or burner.
• Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more
quickly.
• Use the highest heat setting when first bringing the water
to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest
possible setting to maintain that boil.
• NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over 2
different surface cooking areas at the same time. This
can cause uneven heating results.
• In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface
burners can be lit manually. Use caution when lighting
surface burners manually. To light a surface burner, hold
a lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn the
surface control knob to LITE. After burner lights push in
and turn knob to desired setting.
• When operating the oven, it is possible for residual heat
from the oven to build-up and over time to eventually
transfer to the surface control knobs located directly
above the oven door.

with an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water
and a damp cloth, and then scrub with a soap-filled no-scratch cleaning pad. Rinse
and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Do not allow food spills with high sugar or acid
content (milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the
surface; they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.
Oven interior & door liner
Porcelain enamel broil pan and
broil pan insert (some models)
The oven interior is porcelain coated and safe to clean with oven cleaners following
manufacturer's instructions. After cleaning, remove any oven cleaner or the porcelain
may become damaged during future heating. Do not spray oven cleaner on any
electrical controls or switches. Do not spray or allow oven cleaner to build up on
oven temperature sensing bulb. Do not spray cleaner on oven door trim, door gasket,
plastic drawer glides, handles or any exterior surfaces of the range. Clean any soils
from oven frame and door liner outside the oven door gasket. Clean with hot, soapy
water. Rinse using clean water and a cloth. For additional cleaning information see
General cleaning in the Care & Cleaning section.
Oven racks

Care & Cleaning
General cleaning
Aluminum foil and utensils
Ammonia must be rinsed before operating the
oven. Provide adequate ventilation.
NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in
the oven bottom or cover an entire oven 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 trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
• 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 burners under ANY circumstances.
Before manually cleaning any part of the
range, be sure all controls are turned OFF and the range is
COOL. The range may be hot and can cause burns.
Remove soils using hot, soapy water. Do not allow food
spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk,
tomatoes, saukerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain
on the surface as they may cause a dull spot even after
cleaning. Remove spillovers and heavy soiling as soon as
possible. Regular cleaning will reduce the effort required
for major cleaning later.
• 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, the utensil may be damaged or destroyed.
Follow these cleaning precautions:
• Allow the oven to cool before cleaning.
• Wear rubber gloves when cleaning the appliance
manually.
Cleaning oven bottom (some models)
The oven bottom is porcelain enamel and on some models
may be removed for easier cleaning.
Cleaning porcelain enamel oven and broiler drawer:
The oven interior is porcelain on steel, it is safe to clean
using oven cleaners.
Gentle scouring with a soapy nonabrasive plastic scrubbing
pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1 solution of
clear water and ammonia.
Adhere to the following precautions when using
spray oven cleaners:
•
DO NOT spray cleaner on the electrical controls or
switches because it could cause a short circuit and
result in sparking or fire.
•
DO NOT allow a film from the cleaner to build up on
the temperature sensing bulb; it could cause the oven
to heat improperly. The bulb is located in the rear of
the oven. Carefully wipe the bulb clean after each oven
cleaning, being careful not to move the bulb. A change
in its position could affect how the oven bakes. Avoid
bending the bulb and capillary tube.
•
If necessary, cover difficult spots with an ammonia-soaked
paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water
and a damp cloth, and then scrub with a soap-filled nonabrasive scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean
cloth.
Ammonia must be rinsed before operating the
oven. Provide adequate ventilation.
Replacing oven light (on some models)
To replace the oven light:
1. Turn electrical power off
at the main source or
unplug the range.
DO NOT spray any cleaner on the oven door trim or
gasket, broiler drawer glides, handles or any exterior
surfaces of the range, plastic or painted surfaces. The
cleaner can damage these surfaces.
Oven
light
2. Replace bulb with a new
40 watt appliance bulb.
To remove heavy soil:
1.
Allow a dish of ammonia to sit in the oven overnight or
for several hours with the oven door closed. Clean
softened dirt spots using hot, soapy water. Rinse well
with water and a clean cloth.
2. If soil remains, use a nonabrasive scouring pad or a
nonabrasive cleaner. If necessary, use an oven cleaner
following manufacturer's instructions. DO NOT mix
ammonia with other cleaners.
3. 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. Clean with hot, soapy
water. Rinse well using clean water and a cloth.
3. Turn power back on again
at the main source (or
plug the range back in).
4. The clock will then need to
be reset. To reset see
“Setting clock”.
Be sure the range is unplugged and all parts
are COOL before replacing oven light. Wear a leatherfaced glove for protection against possible broken glass.

burner slots using a small nonabrasive brush like a
toothbrush and afterwards wipe up using a damp cloth. For
stubborn soils located in the slots, use a small-gauge wire or
needle to clean.
Keeping the surface burner head ports and slots clean will
prevent improper ignition and an uneven flame. See the
following sections for more instructions.
Cleaning recessed and contoured areas of cooktop
If a spill occurs on or in the recessed or contoured areas,
blot up spill with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean,
damp cloth and wipe dry.
Any spill on or around the electrode must be carefully
cleaned. Take care not to hit the electrode with any thing
hard or it could be damaged.
Cleaning surface burner grates
• Clean only after the grates are completely cool.
• Use nonabrasive plastic scrubbing pad and mild abrasive
cleanser or clean in the dishwasher.
• Food soils containing acids may affect the finish. Clean
immediately after the grates are cool.
• Thoroughly dry grates immediately following cleaning.
To clean the burner head ignition ports
Each burner head has a small ignition port located as
shown. Should you experience ignition problems it may be
that this port hole is partially blocked with soil. With the
burner head in place, use a small wire gauge needle or the
end of a paper clip to clear the ignition port (See Fig. 1;
round style shown; oval burner on some models not shown).
Cleaning burner caps
• Remove caps from burner heads after they have cooled.
• Clean heavy soils with a plastic scrubbing pad and
absorbent cloth.
• Thoroughly dry burner caps immediately following
cleaning including the bottom and inside of cap.
• Do not use abrasive cleaners. They can scratch porcelain.
• Do not clean burner caps in the dishwasher.
• Do not operate surface burners without burner caps
properly in place. Read important notes.
Important notes:
• The surface burner heads are secured to the cooktop and
must be cleaned in place on the cooktop.
• Always keep the surface burner caps in place whenever
a surface burner is in use.
• When replacing the burner caps, be sure the burner caps
are seated firmly on top of the burner heads.
• For proper flow of gas and ignition of burners DO NOT
allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other material
to enter the gas orifice port opening.
