fire by closing the oven door and turning the oven off or
by using a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type fire
extinguisher.
WARNING COOKTOP SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
„ Never leave the surface units unattended at medium or
high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may catch on fire.
„ Never leave oil unattended while frying. If allowed to
heat beyond its smoking point, oil may ignite resulting
in fire that may spread to surrounding cabinets. Use a
deep fat thermometer whenever possible to monitor oil
temperature.
„ To avoid oil spillover and fire, use a minimum amount of
oil when shallow pan-frying and avoid cooking frozen
foods with excessive amounts of ice.
„ 8VHSURSHUSDQVL]H³VHOHFWFRRNZDUHKDYLQJIODW
bottoms large enough to cover the surface heating
element. The use of undersized cookware will expose
a portion of the surface unit to direct contact and may
result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of
cookware to surface unit will also improve efficiency.

The following information will help you choose cookware which will give good performance on glass cooktops.
For Models With a Radiant Glass Cooktop
Never cook directly on the glass.
Always use cookware.
Always place the pan in the center of
the surface unit you are cooking on.
The radiant cooktop features heating units
beneath a smooth glass surface.
NOTE: A slight odor is normal when a new
cooktop is used for the first time. It is caused
by the heating of new parts and insulating
materials and will disappear in a short time.
NOTE: On models with light-colored glass
cooktop, it is normal for the cooking zones to
change color when hot or cooling down. This is
temporary and will disappear as the glass cools
to room temperature.
The surface unit will cycle on and off to
maintain your selected control setting.
It is safe to place hot cookware on the glass
surface even when the cooktop is cool.
Even after the surface units are turned off, the
glass cooktop retains enough heat to continue
cooking. To avoid overcooking, remove pans
from the surface units when the food is cooked.
Avoid placing anything on the surface unit until
it has cooled completely.
Do not slide cookware across the cooktop because
LWFDQVFUDWFKWKHJODVV³WKHJODVVLVVFUDWFKUHVLVWDQW
not scratchproof.
„ Water stains (mineral deposits) are
removable using the cleaning cream or fullstrength white vinegar.
„ Use of window cleaner may leave an
iridescent film on the cooktop. The cleaning
cream will remove this film.
„ Don’t store heavy items above the cooktop.
If they drop onto the cooktop, they can
cause damage.
„ Do not use the surface as a cutting board.
Temperature Limiter on Radiant Glass Cooktops
Every radiant surface unit has a temperature
limiter.
The temperature limiter may cycle the surface
units off for a time if:
The temperature limiter protects the glass
cooktop from getting too hot.
„ the pan boils dry.
„ the pan bottom is not flat.
„ the pan is off-center.
„ there is no pan on the unit.

Back of OVEN TEMP knob
(knob appearance may vary)
Pull the OVEN TEMP knob off the range and
look at the back side. To make an adjustment,
loosen (approximately one turn), but do not
completely remove, the two screws on the
back of the knob.
With the back of the knob facing you, hold the
outer edge of the knob with one hand and turn
the front of the knob with the other hand.
To increase the oven temperature, move the
top screw toward the right. You’ll hear a click
for each notch you move the knob.
To decrease the oven temperature, move the
top screw toward the left.
Each click will change the oven temperature
approximately 10°F. (Range is plus or minus
60°F from the arrow.) We suggest that you
make the adjustment one click from the
original setting and check oven performance
before making any additional adjustments.
After the adjustment is made, retighten screws
so they are snug, but be careful not to
overtighten.
Replace the knob, matching the flat area of the
knob to the shaft, and check performance.
The type of margarine will affect baking performance!
Most recipes for baking have been developed using high-fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you decrease the fat,
the recipe may not give the same results as with a higher-fat product.
Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries, cookies or candies are made with low-fat spreads. The lower the fat content of a
spread product, the more noticeable these differences become.
Federal standards require products labeled “margarine” to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low-fat spreads, on the other hand, contain
less fat and more water. The high moisture content of these spreads affects the texture and flavor of baked goods. For best results with
your old favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or stick spreads containing at least 70% vegetable oil.

Door Positioning During Broiling:
How to Set the Oven for Broiling
Use Lo Broil to cook foods such as poultry
or thick cuts of meat thoroughly without over
browning them.
Place the food on a broiler grid in a broiler
pan designed for broiling.
Follow suggested rack positions in the
Broiling Guide.
The oven must be closed during broiling.
Touch the Broil Hi/Lo pad once for Hi
Broil.
To change to Lo Broil, touch the Broil Hi/
Lo pad again.
Touch the Start pad.
When broiling is finished, touch the Clear/
Off pad.
Broiling Guide
The size, weight, thickness,
starting temperature and
your preference of doneness
will affect broiling times. This
guide is based on meats at
refrigerator temperature.
Adjust rack position or broil
setting to achieve different
results. Move food closer
to the broil element for
greater searing and less
internal doneness. For less
searing,meat that is cooked
through, and thicker cuts
of meat use rack positions
further from the broiler or use
broil low.
† Cook food thoroughly to help
protect against food borne
illness. Minimum safe food
temperature recommendations
for food safety can be found at
www.IsItDoneYet.gov. Make
sure to use a food thermometer
to take food temperatures.

Before a Self-Clean Cycle
We recommend venting your kitchen with an
open window or using a ventilation fan or hood
during the first self-clean cycle.
Remove broiler pan, broiler grid, all cookware
and any aluminum foil from the oven.
Wipe up heavy soil on the oven
bottom.
NOTE:
„ If your oven is equipped with shiny, silvercolored oven racks, we recommend
to remove them before you begin the
self-clean cycle. They may remain in the
oven during the self-clean cycle, but they will
darken, lose their luster and become hard to
slide.
„ If your oven is equipped with gray porcelaincoated oven racks, they may be left in the
oven during the self-clean cycle.
Soil on the front frame of the range and outside
the gasket on the door will need to be cleaned
by hand. Clean these areas with hot water,
soap-filled or plastic scouring pads or cleansers
such as Soft Scrub®. Rinse well with clean water
and dry.
Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass material
of the oven door gasket cannot withstand
abrasion. It is essential for the gasket to remain
intact. If you notice it becoming worn or frayed,
replace it.
Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in place
and the oven light is off.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is
extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during
the self-cleaning cycle of any range. Move birds
to another well-ventilated room.

Do not lift the surface unit more than 1 inch.
If you do, it may not lie flat on the drip pan
when you plug it back in.
NOTE: Repeated lifting of the surface unit
more than 1 inch above the drip pan can
permanently damage the receptacle.
Push the surface unit in and down to lock the
tab in place so it rests evenly in the cooktop.
Do not immerse the surface units in liquids of any
kind.
Do not clean the surface units in a dishwasher.
Do not bend the surface unit plug terminals.
Do not attempt to clean, adjust or in any way repair
the plug-in receptacle.
Drip Pans
Remove the surface units. Then lift out the drip pans.
For best results, clean the drip pans by hand. Place
them in a covered container (or a plastic bag) with
1ø4 cup ammonia to loosen the soil. Rinse with clean
water and polish with a clean soft cloth.
The drip pans may also be cleaned in a dishwasher.
Clean the area under the drip pans often. Built-up
soil, especially grease, may catch fire.
Do not cover the drip pans with foil. Using foil so
close to the receptacle could cause shock, fire or
damage to the range.
NOTE: If your cooktop is equipped with shiny, silvercolored drip pans, do not clean them in the selfcleaning oven. Permanent damage to the finish can
occur.
If your cooktop is equipped with black or gray
porcelain-coated drip pans, they can be cleaned in
the oven during the self-cleaning cycle. Before you
begin a self-cleaning cycle, remove any heavy soil
from the drip pans and place them on the porcelaincoated oven racks. Do not place the drip pans
directly on the oven bottom. After the self-cleaning
cycle is completed and the drip pans are cool, wipe
them with a damp cloth to remove any remaining
ash or residue.
Lift-Up Cooktop
The entire cooktop may be lifted up and supported in
the up position for easier cleaning.
Be sure all surface units are turned
off before raising the Cooktop.
22
The surface units do not need to be removed;
however, you may remove one to make raising the
cooktop easier. There are two side supports that lock
into position when the cooktop is
lifted up.
After cleaning under the cooktop with hot,
mild soapy water and a clean cloth, lower the
cooktop. Be careful not to pinch your fingers.
To lower the cooktop, push the rods back and gently
lower the cooktop until it rests in place.

Oven Racks
All oven racks may be cleaned by hand with an
abrasive cleaner or steel wool. After cleaning,
rinse the racks with clean water and dry with
a clean cloth. Gray porcelain-coated oven
racks may remain in the oven during the selfcleaning cycle without being damaged. The
shiny, silver-colored oven racks may remain in
the oven during the self-cleaning cycle, but they
will lose their luster and become hard to slide.
It will be necessary to grease all oven rack side
edges with a light coating of vegetable oil after
cleaning them by hand or in the oven. This will
help maintain the ease of sliding the racks in
and out of the oven.

Stainless Steel Handles (on some models)
The stainless steel handles (on some
models) can be cleaned with a commercially
available stainless steel cleaner. Cleaners
with oxalic acid such as Bar Keepers Friend
Soft Cleanser™ will remove rust, tarnish, and
small blemishes. Use only a liquid cleanser
free of grit and rub in the direction of the
brush lines with a damp soft sponge. Do not
use appliance wax or polish on the stainless
steel.
Do not wipe the handle with a soiled dish
cloth or wet towel. Do not use scouring
pads, powdered cleaners, bleach or cleaners
containing bleach because these products
can scratch and weaken the finish.

Cleaning the glass cooktop. (on some models)
Normal Daily Use Cleaning
Clean your cooktop after
each spill. Use CERAMA
BRYTE® Ceramic Cooktop
Cleaner.
ONLY use CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic Cooktop
Cleaner on the glass cooktop. Other creams
may not be as effective.
Shake the cleaning cream well. Apply a
few drops of CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic
Cooktop Cleaner directly to the cooktop.
To maintain and protect the surface of your
glass cooktop, follow these steps:
Use a paper towel or CERAMA BRYTE®
Cleaning Pad for Ceramic Cooktops to
clean the entire cooktop surface.
Before using the cooktop for the
first time, clean it with CERAMA BRYTE®
Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner. This helps
protect the top and makes cleanup easier.
Daily use of CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic
Cooktop Cleaner will help keep the
cooktop looking new.
Use a dry cloth or paper towel to
remove all cleaning residue. No need to
rinse.
NOTE: It is very important that you DO NOT
heat the cooktop until it has been cleaned
thoroughly.
Burned-On Residue
NOTE: DAMAGE to your glass surface may
occur if you use scrub pads other than those
recommended.
Allow the cooktop to cool.
Use a CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning
Pad for Ceramic Cooktops.
Spread a few drops of CERAMA BRYTE®
Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner on the entire
burned residue area.
If any residue remains, repeat the steps
listed above as needed.
For additional protection, after all
residue has been removed, polish the
entire surface with CERAMA BRYTE®
Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner and a paper
towel.
Using the included CERAMA BRYTE®
Cleaning Pad for Ceramic Cooktops, rub
the residue area, applying pressure as
needed.
Heavy, Burned-On Residue
Allow the cooktop to cool.
The CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic
Cooktop Scraper and all
recommended supplies are
available through our Parts
Center. See instructions under “To
Order Parts” section on next page.
NOTE: Do not use a dull or
nicked blade.
26
Use a single-edge razor blade scraper
at approximately a 45° angle against
the glass surface and scrape the soil. It
will be necessary to apply pressure to
the razor scraper in order to remove
the residue.
After scraping with the razor scraper,
spread a few drops of CERAMA BRYTE®
Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner on the entire
burned residue area. Use the CERAMA
BRYTE® Cleaning Pad to remove any
remaining residue.
For additional protection, after all
residue has been removed, polish the
entire surface with CERAMA BRYTE®
Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner and a paper
towel.

Metal Marks and Scratches
Be careful not to slide pots and pans
across your cooktop. It will leave metal
markings on the cooktop surface.
These marks are removable using the
CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner
with the CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Pad
for Ceramic Cooktops.
If pots with a thin overlay of aluminum
or copper are allowed to boil dry, the
overlay may leave black discoloration
on the cooktop.
This should be removed immediately
before heating again or the
discoloration may be permanent.
NOTE: Carefully check the bottom of pans
for roughness that would scratch the
cooktop.
Cooktop Seal
To clean the cooktop seal around the edges
of the glass, lay a wet cloth on it for a few
minutes, then wipe clean with nonabrasive
cleaners.
*ODVVVXUIDFH³SRWHQWLDOIRUSHUPDQHQWGDPDJH.
Our testing shows that
if you are cooking high
sugar mixtures such as
jelly or fudge and have
a spillover, it can cause
permanent damage to the
glass surface unless the
spillover is immediately
removed.
Damage from Sugary Spills and Melted Plastic
Turn off all surface units. Remove hot
pans.
Wearing an oven mitt:
a. Use a single-edge razor blade scraper
(CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic Cooktop
Scraper) to move the spill to a cool
area on the cooktop.
Don’t use the surface units again until all
of the residue has been completely
removed.
NOTE: If pitting or indentation in the glass
surface has already occurred, the cooktop
glass will have to be replaced.
In this case, service will be necessary.
b. Remove the spill with paper towels.
Any remaining spillover should be left until
the surface of the cooktop has cooled.
