All ranges can tip. BURNS or other SERIOUS INJURIES can result. INSTALL and CHECK the anti-tip
bracket following the instructions supplied with the bracket. To reduce the risk of tipping the
range, the range must be secured by a properly installed anti-tip bracket See installation
instructions shipped with the bracket for complete details before attempting to install.
To check if the bracket is installed and engaged properly, look underneath the range to see
that the rear leveling leg is engaged in the bracket On some models, the storage drawer or
kick panel can be removed for easy inspection. If visual inspection is not possible, slide the
range forward, confirm the anti-tip bracket is securely attached to the floor or wall, and slide
the range back so the rear leveling leg is under the anti-tip bracket.
If the range is pulled from the wall for any reason, always repeat this procedure to verify the
range is properly secured by the anti-tip bracket.
Never completely remove the leveling legs or the range will not be secured to the anti-tip
device properly.

receive one at no cost.
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to publish a list of
substances known to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to
warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.
The fiberglass insulation in self-clean ovens gives off a very small amount of carbon monoxide during the cleaning cycle.
Exposure can be minimized by venting with an open window or using a ventilation fan or hood.
NEVER use this appliance as a space heater to
heat or warm the room. Doing so may result in
carbon monoxide poisoning and overheating of
the oven.
Use this appliance for its intended purpose as described
in this owners manual.
Have your range installed and properly grounded by a
qualified installer in accordance with the provided
installation instructions. Any adjustment and service
should be performed only by qualified gas range
installers or service technicians. Do not attempt to repair
or replace any part of your range unless it is specifically
recommended in this manual.
Your range is shipped from the factory set for use with
natural gas. It can be converted for use with LP gas. If
required, these adjustments must be made by a
qualified technician in accordance with the installation
instructions and local codes. The agency performing this
work assumes responsibility for the conversion.
Have the installer show you the location of the range
gas shut-off valve and how to turn it off if necessary.
Plug your range into a 120-volt grounded outlet only. Do
not remove the round grounding prong from the plug. If
in doubt about the grounding of the home electrical
system, it is your responsibility and obligation to have an
ungrounded outlet replaced with a properly grounded,
three prong outlet in accordance with the National
Electrical Code. Do not use an extension cord with this
Before performing any service, unplug the range or
disconnect the power supply at the household
distribution panel by removing the fuse or switching off
the circuit breaker.
Do not leave children alone or unattended in an area
where an appliance is in use. They should never be
allowed to climb, sit or stand on any part of the
Do not store items of interest to children above a range
or on the backguard of a range-children climbing on
the range to reach items could be seriously injured.
Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on the
oven door, drawer or cooktop. They could damage the
range or tip it over causing severe injury or death.
Never block the vents (air openings) of the range. They
provide the air inlets and outlets that are necessary for
the range to operate properly with correct combustion.
Air openings are located at the rear of the cooktop, at
the top and bottom of the oven door, and at the
bottom of the range under the warming drawer, lower
oven drawer or kick panel.
Use only dry pot holders—moist or damp pot holders on
hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let
pot holders touch surface burners, burner grate, or oven
heating element Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth
in place of pot holders.
Be careful not to touch hot surfaces of the range.
Potentially hot surfaces include burners, grates, cooktop,
backguard, oven and door interior and crevices around
the oven door.
Do not heat unopened food containers. Pressure could
build up and the container could burst, causing an
To protect against foodborne illness, ensure that
temperatures of meat and poultry products meet or
exceed the USDA minimum recommended
temperatures for food safety. For more information see: or call the USDA meat and poultry
hotline at 1-888-674-6854.
Be sure all packing materials are removed from the
range before operating to prevent ignition of these
Avoid scratching or impacting glass doors, cooktops or
control panels. Doing so may lead to glass breakage. Do
not cook on a product with broken glass. Shock, fire or
cuts may occur.
Do not store or use flammable materials in an oven or
near the cooktop, including paper, plastic, pot holders,
linens, wall coverings, curtains, drapes and gasoline or
other flammable vapors and liquids.
Never wear loose-fitting or hanging garments while using
the appliance. Avoid storing commonly used items in
cabinets above the range and be careful when
reaching over the range. Clothing in close proximity to
burners or hot surfaces may ignite causing severe burns.
Do not let cooking grease or other flammable materials
accumulate in or near the range. Grease in the oven or
on the cooktop may ignite.
Clean ventilating hoods frequently. Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter.
Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up a
flaming pan. Turn the controls off. Smother a flaming pan
on a surface burner by covering the pan completely
with a well-fitting lid, cookie sheet or flat troy. If
necessary, use a multipurpose dry chemical or foamtype fire extinguisher.
If there is a fire in the oven during baking, turn the oven
off and keep the door closed until the fire goes out. If
necessary, use a multipurpose dry chemical or foam
type fire extinguisher.
If there is a fire in the oven during self-clean, turn the
oven off and wait for the fire to go out. Do not force the
door open. Introduction of fresh air at self-clean
temperatures may lead to a burst of flame from the
oven. Failure to follow this instruction may result in severe
Never leave the surface burners unattended at medium
or high heat settings. Foods, especially oily foods, may
ignite resulting in fire that could spread to surrounding
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
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.
Use proper pan size and avoid pans that are unstable or
easily tipped. Select cookware that is matched to the
size of the burner. Burner flames should be adjusted so
that they do not extend beyond the bottom of the pan
Excessive flame may be hazardous.
Always use the LITE position when igniting the top burners
and make sure the burners have ignited.
When using glass/ceramic cookware, make sure it is
suitable for cooktop service; others may break because
of sudden change in temperature.
To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition of flammable
materials and spillage, the handle of a container should
be turned toward the center of the range without
extending over nearby burners.
When preparing flaming foods under a hood, turn the
fan on.
Do not use a wok with a round metal support ring, the
ring may trap heat and block air to the burner resulting
in a carbon monoxide hazard.
Do not attempt to lift the cooktop if your range has
sealed surface burners. Doing so may damage the gas
tubing to the surface burners resulting in a gas leak and
risk of fire.
Do not use aluminum foil to cover the grates or line any
part of the cooktop. Doing so may result in carbon
monoxide poisoning, overheating of the cooktop
surfaces, or a potential fire hazard.
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 airflow
through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide
poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may also trap heat,
causing a fire hazard.
Stand away from the range when opening the oven
door. Hot air or steam which escapes can cause burns
to hands, face and/or eyes.
Keep the oven free from grease buildup. Grease in the
oven may ignite.
Place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If
rack must be moved while oven is hot, be careful to
avoid touching hot surfaces.
Pull the oven rack to the stop-lock position when loading
and unloading food from the oven. This helps prevent
burns from touching hot surfaces of the door and oven
Do not leave items such as paper, cooking utensils or
food in the oven when not in use. Items stored in an
oven can ignite.
Do not leave items on the cooktop near the oven vent
which is in the center of the backguard. Items may
overheat resulting in a risk of fire or burns.
When using cooking or roosting bags in the oven, follow
the manufacturer’s directions.
Never broil with door open. Open-door broiling is not
permitted due to overheating of control knobs.
The self-cleaning feature operates the oven at temperatures high enough to burn away food soils in the oven. Follow
these instructions for safe operation.
Before operating the self-clean cycle, remove pans,
shiny metal oven racks and other utensils from the oven.
Only porcelain-coated oven racks may be left in the
oven. Do not use self-clean to clean other parts, such as
Before operating the self-clean cycle, wipe grease and
food soils from the oven. Excessive amount of grease
may ignite leading to smoke damage to your home.
If the self—cleaning mode malfunctions, turn the oven
off and disconnect the power supply. Have it serviced
by a qualified technician.
Do not clean the door gasket. The door gasket is
essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to
rub, damage or move the gasket.
Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial oven cleaner
or oven liner protective coating of any kind should be
used in or around any part of the oven.
(Some models)
The purpose of the warming drawer is to hold hot
cooked foods at serving temperature. Bacteria will grow
very rapidly in food that is between 40 and 140°F. Do not
put cold food in warming drawer. Do not keep food in
the warming drawer for more than 2 hours. Failure to
follow these instructions may result in foodborne illness.
Do not leave paper products, plastics, canned food or
combustible materials in the drawer. They may ignite.
Do not touch the heating element or the interior surface
of the drawer. These surfaces may be hot enough to
cause burns.
Use care when opening the drawer. Open the drawer a
crack and let hot air or steam escape before removing
or replacing food. Hot air or steam that escapes can
cause burns to hands, face and/or eyes.
Do not use aluminum foil to line the warming drawer. Foil
is an excellent heat insulator and will trap heat beneath
it. This will upset the performance of the drawer and
potentially cause a fire hazard.
Using the gas surface burners.
Throughout this manual, features and appearance may vary from your model.
Before Lighting a Gas Burner
Make sure all burners are in place.
Make sure all grates on the range are
properly placed before using any burner.
After Lighting a Gas Burner
Do not operate the burner for an
extended period of time without
cookware on the grate. The finish on the
grate may chip without cookware to
absorb the heat.
Be sure the burners and grates are cool
before you place your hand, a pot
holder, cleaning cloths or other materials
on them.
How to Light a Gas Surface Burner
Push the control knob in and turn
it to the LITE position.
Make sure all the surface burners are
placed in their respective positions.
Push the control knob in and turn it to the
LITE position.
You will hear a little clicking noise—the
sound of the electric spark igniting the
Turn the knob to adjust the flame size. If the
knob stays at LITE, it will continue to click.
When one burner is turned to LITE, all the
burners spark. Do not attempt to
disassemble or clean around any burner
while another burner is on. An electric
shock may result, which could cause you
to knock over hot cookware.
How to Select Flame Size
Flames that are not covered by cookware
may present a risk of burns or clothing
ignition. Never let flames extend beyond
the sides of the cookware.
Watch the flame, not the knob, as you
adjust heat. When fast heating is desired,
the flame size on a gas burner should
match the cookware you are using.
Flames larger than the bottom of the
cookware will not result in faster heating
and may be hazardous.
Top-of-Range Cookware
Aluminum: Medium-weight cookware is
recommended because it heats quickly
and evenly. Most foods brown evenly in an
aluminum skillet. Use saucepans with tight
fitting lids when cooking with minimum
amounts of water.
Cast-Iron: If heated slowly, most skillets will
give satisfactory results.
Enamelware: Under some conditions, the
enamel of some cookware may melt.
Follow cookware manufacturer’s
recommendations for cooking methods.
Glass: There are two types of glass
cookware-those for oven use only and
those for top-of-range cooking
(saucepans, coffee and teapots). Glass
conducts heat very slowly.
Heatproof Glass Ceramic: Can be used for
either surface or oven cooking. It conducts
heat very slowly and cools very slowly.
Check cookware manufacturer’s
directions to be sure it can be used on gas
Stainless Steel: This metal alone has poor
heating properties and is usually combined
with copper, aluminum or other metals for
improved heat distribution. Combination
metal skillets usually work satisfactorily if
they are used with medium heat as the
manufacturer recommends.
In Case of Power Failure
In case of a power failure, you can light
the gas surface burners on your range with
a match. Hold a lit match to the burner,
then push in and turn the control knob to
the LITE position. Use extreme caution
when lighting burners this way.
Surface burners in use when an electrical
power failure occurs will continue to
operate normally.
Using the oven.
Throughout this manual, features and appearance may vary from your model.
Oven Control
Your oven is controlled by an OVEN TEMP
knob. It can take up to 90 seconds before
the flame comes on.
After the oven reaches the selected
temperature, the oven burner maintains
the selected temperature.
Power Outage
The oven or broiler cannot be lit during a
power failure.
If the oven is in use when a power failure
occurs, the oven burner shuts off. This is
because the flow of gas is automatically
stopped and will not resume until power is
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the desired position before you turn the oven on.
Before you begin...
The shelves have stop-locks, so that when
placed correctly on the shelf supports (A
through D), they will stop before coming
completely out, and will not tilt.
When placing and removing cookware,
pull the shelf out to the bump on the shelf
To remove a shelf, pull it toward you, tilt the
front end up and pull it out.
To replace, place the end of the shelf
(stop-locks) on the support, tilt up the front
and push the shelf in.
NOTE: The shelf is not designed to slide out
at the special low shelf (A) position.
The oven has 4 shelf positions.
CAUTION When you are using a rack in the
lowest position (A), you will need to use
caution when pulling the rack out. We
recommend that you pull the rack out
several inches and then, using two pot
holders, pull the rack out by holding the
sides of it. The rack is low and you can be
burned if you put your hand in the middle
of the rack and pull all the way out.
Using the oven.
Upper Oven Vent
Plastic items on the cooktop may
melt if left too close to the vent.
Vent appearance and location
Your oven is vented through ducts at the
rear of the range. Do not block these ducts
when cooking in the oven—it is important
that the flow of hot air from the oven and
fresh air to the oven burner be
uninterrupted. Avoid touching the vent
openings or nearby surfaces during oven or
broiler operation—they may become hot.
Handles of pots and pans on the cooktop
may become hot if left too close to the
Do not leave plastic or flammable items
on the cooktop—they may melt or ignite
if left too close to the vent.
Do not leave closed containers on the
cooktop. The pressure in closed
containers may increase, which may
cause them to burst.
Metal items will become very hot if they
are left on the cooktop, and could cause
Oven Light
Use the switch on the lower control panel to
turn the light on or off.
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.
Using the oven for baking.
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the desired position before you turn the oven on.
How to Set the Oven For Baking
1. Close the oven door. Then turn the OVEN
TEMP knob to the desired temperature.
2. Check the food for doneness at the
minimum time on the recipe. Cook longer
if necessary. Turn the OVEN TEMP knob to
OFF and remove the food.
Oven Shelves
Place most foods in the middle of
the oven.
To preheat, set the oven at
the correct temperature—
selecting a higher
temperature does not shorten
the preheat time.
Arrange the oven shelf or shelves in the
desired locations while the oven is cool. The
correct shelf position depends on the kind of
food and the browning desired.
As a general rule, place most foods in the
middle of the oven, on either the shelf
position B or C. See the chart for suggested
shelf positions.

Preheat the oven for 10 minutes if the recipe
calls for it. Preheat means bringing the oven
up to the specified temperature before
putting the food in the oven.
Preheating is necessary for good results
when baking cakes, cookies, pastry and
breads. For most casseroles and roasts,
preheating is not necessary.
Baking Pans
Use the proper baking pan. The type of finish
on the pan determines the amount of
browning that will occur.
Glass baking dishes also absorb heat.
When baking in glass baking dishes, lower
the temperature by 25°F and use the
recommended cooking time in the
recipe. This is not necessary when baking
pies or casseroles.
Dark, rough or dull pans absorb heat
resulting in a browner, crisper crust. Use
this type for pies.
Shiny, bright and smooth pans reflect
heat, resulting in a lighter, more delicate
browning. Cakes and cookies require this
type of pan.
Pan Placement
For even cooking and proper browning,
there must be enough room for air
circulation in the oven. Baking results will be
better if baking pans are centered as much
as possible rather than being placed to the
front or to the back of the oven.
Pans should not touch each other or the
walls of the oven. Allow 1 to 1 1/2 inch space
between pans as well as from the back of
the oven, the door and the sides.
If you need to use two shelves, stagger the
pans so one is not directly above the other.
Using the oven for baking.
Flat cookie sheets (without sides) produce
better-looking cookies. Cookies baked in a
jelly roll pan (short sides all around) may
have darker edges and pale or light
browning may occur.
Do not use a cookie sheet so large that it
touches the walls or the door of the oven.
Never entirely cover a shelf with a large
cookie sheet.
For best results, use only one
cookie sheet in the oven at a
For best results, bake pies in dark, rough or
dull pans to produce a browner, crisper
Frozen pies in foil pans should be placed on
an aluminum cookie sheet for baking since
the shiny foil pan reflects heat away from
the pie crust; the cookie sheet helps retain
When baking cakes, warped or bent pans
will cause uneven baking results and poorly
shaped products.
A cake baked in a pan larger than the
recipe recommends will usually be crisper,
thinner and drier than it should be.
If baked in a pan smaller than
recommended, it may be undercooked and
batter may overflow.
Check the recipe to make sure the pan size
used is the one recommended.
Don’t Peek
Set the timer for the estimated cooking time
and do not open the door to look at your
food. Most recipes provide minimum and
maximum baking times such as "bake 30-40
DO NOT open the door to check until the
minimum time. Opening the oven door
frequently during cooking allows heat to
escape and makes baking times longer.
Your baking results may also be affected.
Aluminum Foil
Do not use aluminum foil to line oven
bottoms. The foil will trap heat below and
upset the performance of the oven. Foil can
melt and permanently damage the oven
bottom. Damage from improper use of
aluminum foil is not covered by the product
Oven Moisture
As your oven heats up, the temperature
change of the air in the oven may cause
water droplets to form on the door glass.
These droplets are harmless and will
evaporate as the oven continues to heat
Foil may be used to catch spills by placing a
sheet on a lower rack, several inches below
the food. Do not use more foil than
necessary and never entirely cover an oven
rack with aluminum foil. Keep foil at least 11/2" from oven walls to prevent poor heat
Using the oven for roasting.
Roasting is cooking by dry heat. Tender meat or poultry can be roasted uncovered in your oven. Roasting temperatures,
which should be low and steady, keep spattering to a minimum.
Roasting is really a baking procedure used for meats. Roasting is easy just follow these directions:
How to Set the Oven For Roasting
Place the shelf in the A or B
1. Place the shelf in the A or B position. No
preheating is necessary.
2. Check the weight of the meat. Place it fat
side up (or for poultry, breast-side-up) on
a roasting rack in a shallow pan. The
melting fat will baste the meat. Select a
pan as close to the size of the meat as
possible. Line the pan with aluminum foil
when using the pan for marinating,
cooking with fruits, cooking heavily cured
meats or basting food during cooking.
3. Turn the OVEN TEMP knob to the desired
4. After roasting is complete, turn the OVEN
TEMP knob to OFF and then remove the
food from the oven.
Adjust the oven thermostat—Easy to do yourself!
You may find that your new oven cooks differently than the one it replaced. Use your new oven for a few weeks to
become more familiar with it. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the thermostat
Do not use thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores, to check the temperature setting of your oven. These
thermometers may vary 20-40°F.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling temperatures. The adjustment will be retained in memory after a power

Using the oven for broiling.
How to Set the Broiler Compartment
Broiling is cooking food by direct heat from
above the food. Most fish and tender cuts
of meat can be broiled. Follow these
directions to keep spattering and smoking
to a minimum.
3. If meat has fat or gristle around the
edge, cut vertical slashes through both
about 2" apart. If desired, the fat may be
trimmed, leaving a layer about 1/8"
Your range has a compartment below the
oven for broiling.
4. Arrange the food on the grid and
position the broiler pan on the
appropriate rack in the oven or broiling
compartment. Placing food closer to the
flame increases exterior browning of the
food, but also increases spattering and
the possibility of fats and meat juices
Both the oven and broiler compartment
doors must be closed during broiling.
Turn most foods once during cooking (the
exception is thin fillets of fish; oil one side,
place that side down on broiler grid and
cook without turning until done). Time
foods for about one-half the total cooking
time, turn food, then continue to cook to
preferred doneness.
1. You can change the distance of the
food from the heat source by positioning
the broiler pan and grid on one of three
rack positions in the broiler
compartment—A (bottom of broiler
compartment), B (middle) and C (top).
2. Preheating the broiler or oven is not
necessary and can produce poor
5. Close the oven and broiler compartment
6. Turn the OVEN CONTROL knob to BROIL.
7. When broiling is finished, turn the OVEN
CONTROL knob to OFF. Remove the
broiler pan from the broiler
compartment and serve the food
immediately. Leave the pan outside the
range to cool.
Using the oven for broiling.
Aluminum Foil
You can use aluminum foil to line your broiler
pan and broiler grid. However, you must
mold the foil tightly to the grid and cut slits in
it just like the grid.
Broiling Compartment Guide Suggestions
Both the oven and broiler compartment
doors must be closed during broiling.
Always use the broiler pan and grid that
comes with your range. It is designed to
minimize smoking and spattering by
trapping juices in the shielded lower part
of the pan.
For steaks and chops, slash fat evenly
around the outside edges of the meat. To
slash, cut crosswise through the outer fat
surface just to the edge of the meat. Use
tongs to turn the meat over to prevent
piercing the meat and losing juices.
If desired, marinate meats or chicken
before broiling. Or brush with barbecue
sauce last 5-10 minutes only.
When arranging the food on the pan, do
not let fatty edges hang over the sides
because dripping fat could soil the oven.
The broiler compartment does not need
to be preheated. However, for very thin
foods, or to increase browning, preheat if
Frozen steaks can be broiled by
positioning the rack at the next lowest
rack position and increasing the cooking
time given in this guide 1 1/2 times per
USDA recommends the following minimum safe internal temperatures:
• Raw beef, pork, lamb, and veal steaks or chops: 145°F as measured with a food
thermometer before removing meat from the heat source. For safety and quality, allow
meat to rest for at least three minutes before carving or consuming.
• Raw ground beef, pork, lamb or veal: 160°F as measured with a food thermometer.
• Poultry: 165°F as measured with a food thermometer

Care and cleaning of the range.
Be sure electrical power is off and all surfaces are cool before cleaning any part of the range.
If your range is removed for cleaning, servicing or any reason, be sure the anti-tip device is
reengaged properly when the range is replaced. Failure to take this precaution could
result in tipping of the range and cause injury.
To check if the bracket is installed and engaged properly, carefully tip the range forward.
The bracket should stop the range within 4 inches. If it does not, the bracket must be

Lift-Up Cooktop (on models with standard twin burners)
Some models have dual support
rods that will hold the cooktop
up while you clean underneath
Clean the area under the cooktop often.
Built-up soil, especially grease, may catch
on fire.
To make cleaning easier, the cooktop may
be lifted up.
NOTE: Do not lift the cooktop on sealed
burner models. Lifting the cooktop can lead
to damage and improper operation of the
To raise the cooktop:
1. Be sure the burners are turned off.
2. Remove the grates.
3. Grasp the two front burner wells and lift
Clean under the cooktop with hot, soapy
water and a clean cloth. If you removed
your surface burners while cleaning, make
sure they are properly seated when
replacing them.
After cleaning, lower the cooktop (be
careful not to pinch your fingers).
Burner Grates
Your range has two or three professionalstyle double grates. These grates are position
specific. For maximum stability, these grates
should only be used in their proper position;
they cannot be interchanged left to right or
front to back. For convenience, the
undersides of the left and right grates are
marked "LEFT FRONT" and "RIGHT FRONT."
Make sure the front portion of both grates is
in front. The middle grate has a bow in front.
Make sure the bowed portion is toward the
front of the range. In addition, the middle
grate is supported by the left and right
grates and must be installed LAST for stability.
Lift out when cool. Grates should be washed
regularly and, of course, after spillovers.
Wash them in hot, soapy water and rinse
with clean water. When replacing the
grates, be sure they are positioned securely
over the burners.
Replace the grates so that continuous arcs
are formed with the center ribs of all three
Do not operate a burner for an extended
period of time without cookware on the
grate. The finish on the grate may chip
without cookware to absorb the heat.
To get rid of burned-on food, place the
grates in a covered container. Add 1/4 cup
ammonia and let them soak several hours or
overnight. Wash, rinse well and dry.
Although they are durable, the grates will
gradually lose their shine, regardless of the
best care you can give them. This is due to
their continual exposure to high
temperatures. You will notice this sooner with
lighter color grates.
NOTE: Do not clean the grates in a selfcleaning oven.
Standard Twin Burner Assemblies (on some models)
Drip pan (if so equipped)
Surface burner
Do not operate the cooktop
without all burner parts, drip
pans (if so equipped) and
grates in place.
For cleaning information on sealed
burners, see section below. Sealed burner
cooktops do not lift up.
On models with standard twin burners, the
cooktop lifts up for easy access.
Turn all controls OFF before removing burner
parts and drip pans (if so equipped).
The burner grates and drip pans (if so
equipped) can be lifted off, making them
easy to clean.
The holes in the surface burners of your
range must be kept clean at all times for
proper ignition and an even, unhampered
You should clean the surface burners
routinely, especially after bad spillovers,
which could clog these holes.
Wipe off surface burners. If heavy spillover
occurs, remove the surface burners from the
range. Burners lift out for cleaning. Lift up the
cooktop and then lift out the surface
To remove burned-on food, soak the surface
burner in a solution of mild liquid detergent
and hot water. Soak the surface burner for
20 to 30 minutes.
For more stubborn stains, use a cleanser like
Soft Scrub brand or Bon Ami brand. Rinse
well to remove any traces of the cleanser
that might clog the surface burner openings.
Do not use steel wool because it will clog
the surface burner openings and scratch the
surface burners. If the holes become
clogged, clean them with a sewing needle
or twist-tie.
Before putting the surface burner back,
shake out excess water and then dry it
thoroughly by setting it in a warm oven for 30
minutes. Then place it back in the range,
making sure it is properly seated and level.
Check the flame pattern of each burner. If
the flames are "jumpy" (not steady), clean
the holes again with a sewing needle or
Clean these holes thoroughly on
each burner.

pans in a self-cleaning oven.
Cooktop Surface
To avoid damaging the porcelain-enamel
surface of the cooktop and to prevent it
from becoming dull, clean up spills right
away. Foods with a lot of acid (tomatoes,
sauerkraut, fruit juices, etc.) or foods with
high sugar content could cause a dull spot if
allowed to set.
When the surface has cooled, wash and
rinse. For other spills such as fat spatterings,
wash with soap and water once the surface
has cooled. Then rinse and polish with a dry

the Stainless steel surfaces section.
Care and cleaning of the range.
Oven Air Vents
Never block the vents (air openings) of the
range. They provide the air inlet and outlet
that are necessary for the range to operate
properly with correct combustion.
Air openings are located at the rear of the
cooktop, at the top and bottom of the oven
door, and at the bottom of the range.
Vent appearance and location vary.
Lower Control Panel (Front Manifold Panel) and Knobs
Surface burner knob
Red line
Lower oven knob (on some
It’s a good idea to wipe the control panel
after each use of the oven. Use a damp
cloth to clean or rinse. For cleaning, use mild
soap and water or a 50/50 solution of
vinegar and water. For rinsing, use clean
water. Polish dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use abrasive cleansers, strong liquid
cleaners, plastic scouring pads or oven
cleaners on the control panel—they will
damage the finish.
Do not try to bend knobs by pulling them up
or down or by hanging a towel or other such
loads. This can damage the gas valve shaft.
The control knobs may be removed for
easier cleaning.
Make sure the knobs are in the OFF positions
and pull them straight off the stems for
Oven Shelves and Broiler Rack
The shelves and broiler rack can be cleaned
by hand using soap and water or with an
abrasive cleaner or steel wool. After
cleaning, rinse the shelves and broiler rack
with clean water and dry with a clean cloth.
After cleaning, grease all oven rack edges
with a light coating of vegetable oil. This will
help maintain the ease of sliding the racks in
and out of the oven.
The knobs can be cleaned in a dishwasher
or they may also be washed with soap and
water. Make sure the insides of the knobs
are dry before replacing.
Replace the knobs in the OFF position to
ensure proper placement.
Metal parts can be cleaned with soap and
water. Do not use steel wool, abrasives,
ammonia, acids or commercial oven
cleaners. Dry with a soft cloth.

undesirable baking results.
Oven Bottom
The oven bottom has a porcelain-enamel
finish. To make cleaning easier, protect the
oven bottom from excessive spillovers by
placing a cookie sheet on the rack below
the rack you are cooking on. This is
particularly important when baking a fruit
pie or other foods with a high acid content.
Hot fruit fillings or other foods that are highly
acidic (such as tomatoes, sauerkraut and
sauces with vinegar or lemon juice) may
cause pitting and damage to the porcelainenamel surface and should be wiped up
To clean up spillovers, use soap and water,
an abrasive cleaner or soap-filled scouring
pad. Rinse well to remove any soap before
Broiler Compartment
The broiler pan is held in place in the broiler
To remove the broiler pan:
1. Gently pull forward on the drop down

gasket—it has an extremely low
resistance to abrasion.
If you notice the gasket
becoming worn, frayed or
damaged in any way or if it has
become displaced on the door,
you should have it replaced.
To clean the inside of the door:
Do not allow excess water to run into any
holes or slots in the door.
Wipe dishwashing detergent over any
baked-on spatters on the glass. Use a
single sided safety razor blade to clean it
off. Then wipe over the glass with a soapy
cloth to remove any residue and dry off.
The area outside the gasket can be
cleaned with a soap-filled plastic scouring
To clean the outside of the door:
Use soap and water to thoroughly clean
the top, sides and front of the oven door.
Rinse well. You may also use a glass
cleaner to clean the glass on the outside
of the door.
Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato
sauces and basting materials containing
acids may cause discoloration and should
be wiped up immediately. When the
surface is cool, clean and rinse.
Do not use oven cleaners, cleansing
powders or harsh abrasives on the outside
of the door.
Porcelain Oven Interior
With proper care, the porcelain enamel
finish on the inside of the oven will stay newlooking for years.
Let the range cool before cleaning.
We recommend that you wear rubber
gloves when cleaning the range.
Soap and water will normally do the job.
Heavy spattering or spillovers may require
cleaning with a mild abrasive cleaner.
Soapy, wet metal pads may also be used.
Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or
acid content (such as tomatoes, sauerkraut,
fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the
surface. They may cause a dull spot even
after cleaning.
Household ammonia may make the
cleaning job easier. Place 1/2 cup in a
shallow glass or pottery container in a cold
oven overnight. The ammonia fumes will
help loosen the burned-on grease and food.
If necessary, you may use an oven cleaner.
Follow package directions.
Cautions about using spray-on oven cleaners:
Do not spray on the electrical controls
and 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 sensor-it
could cause the oven to heat improperly.
(The sensor is located at the top of the
oven.) Carefully wipe the sensor clean
after each oven cleaning, being careful
not to move the sensor as a change in its
position could affect how the oven
Do not spray any oven cleaner on the
outside of the oven door, handles or any
exterior surface of the oven, wood or
painted surfaces. The cleaner can
damage these surfaces.
Painted Surfaces
Painted surfaces include the sides, control
panel and door. Clean these with soap and
water or a vinegar and water solution.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners,
cleansing powders, steel wool or harsh
abrasives on any painted surface.

Installation Instructions
Do not locate the range where it may be subject to
strong drafts. Any openings in the floor or wall behind the
range should be sealed. Make sure the openings
around the base of the range that supply fresh air for
combustion and ventilation are not obstructed by
carpeting or woodwork.
Your range, like many other household items, is heavy
and can settle into soft floor coverings such as
cushioned vinyl or carpeting. Use care when moving the
range on this type of flooring. It is recommended that
the following simple and inexpensive instructions be
followed to protect your floor.
The range should be installed on a sheet of plywood (or
similar material). When the floor covering ends at the
front of the range, the area that the range will rest on
should be built up with plywood to the same level or
higher than the floor covering.
This will allow the range to be moved for cleaning or
servicing. Also, make sure your floor covering will
withstand 180°F. (Seethe Installation Safety Instructions
Make sure the cabinets and wall coverings around your
range can withstand the heat generated (up to 200°F)
by the range. (See the Installation Safety Instructions
Your range is designed to operate at a pressure of 5" of
water column on natural gas or, if designed for LP gas
(propane or butane), 10" of water column.
Make sure you are supplying your range with the type of
gas for which it is designed.
This range is convertible for use on natural or propane
gas. If you decide to use this range on LP gas,
conversion must be made by a qualified LP installer
before attempting to operate the range on that gas.
For proper operation, the pressure of natural gas
supplied to the regulator must be between 6" and 13" of
water column.
For LP gas, the pressure supplied must be between 11"
and 13" of water column.
When checking for proper operation of the regulator,
the inlet pressure must be at least 1" greater than the
operating (manifold) pressure as given above.
The pressure regulator located at the inlet of the range
must remain in the supply line regardless of whether
natural or LP gas is being used.
A flexible metal appliance connector used to connect
the range to the gas supply line should have an I.D. of 1/
2" and be 5 feet in length for ease of installation. In

A word about GFCI’s - GFCI’s are not required or
recommended for gas range receptacles.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI’s) are devices
that sense leakage of current in a circuit and
automatically switch off power when a threshold
leakage level is detected. These devices must be
manually reset by the consumer. The National Electrical
Code requires the use of GFCI’s in kitchen receptacles
installed to serve countertop surfaces. Performance of
the range will not be affected if operated on a GFCIprotected circuit but occasional nuisance tripping of
the GFCI breaker is possible.

of flame
L.P. gas
For Natural Gas:
The oven burner flame should be a clean, blue flame
with distinct inner cones approximately 1/2 inch long. A
soft, lazy flame with indistinct cones means too much
gas or not enough air. A noisy lifting flame means too
much air.
Installation Instructions
For LP Gas:
The flame should have approximately 1-inch blue cones.
After 30 seconds of burner operation, check for flames
lifting off the burner parts. If lifting is observed, gradually
reduce the air shutter opening until flames are stabilized.
Some yellow tipping may be normal for LP gas.
If Adjustment is Necessary:
Loosen the lock screw located at the top of the air
shutter, then rotate the air shutter to the correct
setting and retighten screw.

be secured by a properly installed anti-tip bracket.
Follow the instructions packaged with the bracket.
To check if the bracket is installed and engaged
properly, look underneath the range to see that the rear
leveling leg is engaged in the bracket. On some models,
the storage drawer or kick panel can be removed for
easy inspection. If visual inspection is not possible, slide
the range forward, confirm the anti-tip bracket is
securely attached to the floor or wall, and slide the
range back so the rear leveling leg is under the anti-tip
If the range is pulled from the wall for any reason, always
repeat this procedure to verify the range is properly
secured by the anti-tip bracket.
If your range has no anti-tip bracket, call 1.800.932.4267
to receive one at no cost.
Make sure all controls are left in the off position. Make
sure the flow of combustion and ventilation air to the
range is unobstructed.

If you want to convert to LP gas, the conversion must be
performed by a qualified LP gas installer.
The conversion instructions and LP orifices can be found

Keep these instructions and the orifices in case you want
to convert back to natural gas.
