Before Setting Surface Controls
Using proper cookware
Cookware material types
The size and type of cookware used will influence the radiant
element power level setting needed for best cooking results.
The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly heat
is transferred from the surface element to the pan bottom.
Be sure to follow the recommendations for using proper
cookware shown on this page.
Aluminum - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food will
cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware resists staining
& pitting). If aluminum pans slide across the ceramic cooktop,
they may leave metal marks which will resemble scratches.
Remove these marks immediately.
Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily. May
leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see Aluminum).
Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is
durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor however will retain heat very
well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached. Not
recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.
Figure 1: Check pan for flat bottom using ruler
Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating characteristics will vary
depending on base material. Porcelain-enamel coating must be
smooth to avoid scratching ceramic
Glass - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic
cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass.
Important note:
• Flat bottom and straight
sides.
• Tight fitting lids.
• Weight of handle does
not tilt pan. Pan is well
balanced.
• Pan sizes match the
amount of food to be
prepared and the size
of the surface element.
• Made of material that
conducts heat well.
• Easy to clean.
• Always match pot
diameter to element
size.
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 & they may bond to the ceramic
cooktop. If the cookware melts it will damage the cooktop! Be
sure to follow all the cookware manufacturer’s suggestions when
using any type of cookware on the ceramic cooktop.
• Curved and warped pans.
About the ceramic glass cooktop
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements located
below the surface of the glass. The design of the ceramic
cooktop outlines the area of the surface element underneath. Be
sure to match the pan size with the diameter of the element
outline on the cooktop and only flat-bottomed cookware should
be used.The type and size of cookware, the number of surface
elements in use and their settings are all factors that will affect
the amount of heat that will spread to areas beyond the surface
elements. The areas surrounding the elements may become hot
enough to cause burns.
• Cookware larger than
cooking area marked on
cooktop by more than
one-half inch or 12mm.
• Heavy handle tilts pan.
About the radiant surface elements
The element temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the
temperature rises, the element will glow red. To maintain the
selected setting the element will cycle on and off. The heating
element retains enough heat to provide a uniform and consistent
heat during the off cycle.For efficient cooking, turn off the
element several minutes before cooking is complete. This will
allow residual heat to complete the cooking process.
• Pan is smaller than the
heating area marked on
cooktop.
7
Before Setting Surface Controls
Types of cooktop surface elements
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.
The ceramic glass cooktop has radiant surface elements located
below the surface of the glass. The patterns on the ceramic glass
will outline the size and type of element available.
Do not place plastic items such as 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.
The single radiant element or elements will have one round
outline pattern shown on the cooktop. The warmer zone feature
(on some models), located on the center rear area of the
cooktop, uses one round outline and is designed to keep food
warm only.
Do not allow aluminum foil, empty glass-porcelain cookware or
ANY material that can melt to make contact with the ceramic
cooktop. If these items melt on the cooktop they may damage
the ceramic cooktop.
A dual (on some models) radiant element allows the user to set
the smaller inner portion as a single element or both inner and
outer portions may be set to heat together.
Home Canning
ELEMENT ON and HOT SURFACE indicator lights
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.
Your appliance is equipped with different types of surface
indicator lights that will glow on the control panel — the
ELEMENT ON and HOT SURFACE indicator lights.
Tips and procedures for canning foods:
The ELEMENT ON indicator light is marked on the control panel
and will glow when a surface cooking element is turned on. A
quick glance at this indicator light after cooking is an easy
check to be sure all surface controls are turned off.
The HOT SURFACE indicator light will glow when any surface
cooking element heats up and will remain on until the cooktop
has cooled to a moderate level
Figure 2: Element and hot surface indicator
Important notes:
•
Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the radiant
heating element to cycle on and off, even at the HI setting.
Cycling at the HI setting is normal and will occur more often
if the cookware is too small for the radiant element or if the
cookware bottom is not flat.
•
Be sure to read the detailed instructions for ceramic glass
cooktop maintenance and cleaning in the Care & Cleaning
and Before You Call sections of this Use & Care Guide.
8
•
Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning.
Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom.
•
Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no ridges
that radiate from the bottom center when home canning
using a ceramic cooktop.
•
Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed 1
inch beyond the surface element markings or burner. It is
recommended to use smaller diameter canners on electric
coil and ceramic glass cooktops. Start with hot tap water to
bring water to boil more quickly.
•
Use the highest heat seating when first bringing the water to
a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest
possible setting to maintain that boil.
•
Never place or straddle a cooking utensil over 2 different
surface cooking areas at the same time. This will cause
uneven heating results and may cause the ceramic cooktop
to fracture.

Setting Surface Controls
Warmer Zone (some models)
Important notes:
The purpose of the warmer zone is to keep hot cooked
foods at serving temperature. Use the warmer zone feature to
keep cooked foods hot such as; vegetables,
gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and oven safe
dinner plates.
•
Refer to the warmer zone recommended food settings below. If
a particular food is not listed, start with the medium level, and
adjust as needed.
Always start with hot food. Do not heat cold food with the
warmer zone. All food placed on the warmer 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. Use only dish ware, utensils and
cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use on the
warmer zone.
1.
Use only plates, utensils and cookware recommended for
oven and ceramic cooktop use. Do not use plastic wrap or
aluminum foil to cover food. Plastic or aluminum foil can

Before setting oven controls
Oven vent location
Type of oven racks
The oven vent is located under the left side of the control panel
(Figure 6). 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 oven vent:

Figure 6: Oven vent location
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when
using the oven. When cooking, the oven interior and exterior,
oven racks and cooktop will become very hot which can cause
burns.
Figure 7:
The flat oven rack (some models) or flat handle oven rack (some
models) may be used for most cooking needs.
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
The offset oven rack (on some models) is designed to place the
base of the rack about 1/2 of a rack position lower than flat
oven racks. This design allows several additional positions
between the flat rack positions.
Air circulation in the oven
To maximize oven cooking space place the bottom oven rack
(on some models) in the lowest rack position for roasting large
cuts of meat.
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
cookware in the oven for even heat to reach around the food.

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.
The Self Clean function allows you to select 3 different cleaning
times from 2, 3 or 4 hours. A 3-hour cleaning time is best used
for normal cleaning; 2-hour time for light soils and a 4-hour
clean time for heavier stubborn soils.
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.
Read before starting Self Clean
Be sure to read all following caution and important statements before starting a self clean cycle
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 met 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.

Areas to clean and to avoid
Do not clean the oven door gasket (figure). 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.
Important notes:
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. 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 use 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
(Fig. 13, on page 19). These areas heat sufficiently to burn
soil on. Clean using soap and water prior to starting Self
Clean.
