To eliminate the risk of burns or fire by reaching over heated surface units, cabinet storage space
located above the surface units should be avoided. If cabinet storage is to be provided, the risk can be
reduced by installing a range hood that projects horizontally a minimum of 5 inches beyond the bottom
of the cabinets.
A = 30 inches minimum clearance between the top of the cooking surface and the bottom of an
unprotected wood or metal cabinet; or
A = 24 inches minimum when bottom of wood or metal cabinet is protected by not less than
1/4-inch-thick flame-retardant millboard covered with not less than No. 28 MSG sheet steel,
0.015-inch-thick stainless steel, 0.024-inch-thick aluminum, or 0.020-inch-thick copper.
A = 40 inches minimum clearance between the top of the cooking surface and the bottom of an
unprotected wood or metal cabinet, if your used one of the four model dual fuel range
-HRD3620U,HRD3604U, HRD4801U and HRD4802U.
Range Dimension
The depth of the range is 27 ½’’ (69.8 cm) overall.
30 inch dual fuel range
36 inch dual fuel range
48 inch dual fuel range
Positioning the Range
You may install a non-combustible material on the rear wall above the range and up the vent hood. It is
not necessary to install non-combustible materials behind the range below the counter top height.
The minimum vertical distance between adjacent cabinets and the cooking surface must be 18'‘.
The maximum depth of adjacent cabinets installed above cooking tops should be less than 13 inch.
30 inch dual fuel range
36 inch dual fuel range
48 inch dual fuel range
The bottom of the hood should be 30 inch min. to 36 inch above the counter top.
This would typically result in the bottom of the hood being 66 inch to 72 inch above the floor,which
provide safe and efficient operation of the hood.

First Use
Before you start
1. Make sure that the anti-tip of the range has been properly installed.
2. Find the model and serial numbers on the CSA label .Note these numbers down for future reference
in the space provided in section ‘Warranty and service’.
3. Read this guide, taking special note of the ‘Safety and warnings’ section.
4. Remove all the packaging from the oven(s) and cooktop. Recycle items that you can. If any adhesive
residue is left on surfaces, remove this using dish washing liquid on a soft cloth. Do not use any harsh or
abrasive cleaners.
5. Make sure you follow the instructions under ‘First use’ before using your range for cooking.
Conditioning the oven
Conditioning will burn off any manufacturing residues and ensure that you get the best results right from
the start.
1.Insert all the shelves. See ‘Positioning the shelves’ for instructions.
2.Turn on the ventilation hood above your range on high.
3.Heat the empty oven at the highest temperature for:
30 minutes using BAKE.
30 minutes using BROIL (some ovens only).
There will be a distinctive smell while you are conditioning the oven. This is normal, but make sure the
kitchen is well ventilated during the conditioning.
4.Once cooled, wipe out the oven with a damp cloth and mild detergent, and dry thoroughly.
Positioning the shelves
Both the sides panel and shelves with safety stop to keep them sliding out of the oven when pulled
forward;And the front stop prevent the shelves from against hitting the back of the oven.
Insert the shelves
1. Hold the front of both sides of the shelf firmly to keep it in horizontal.
2. Put the shelf on the slot horizontally.
3. Lift the front about 15°upward till the tag of the shelf clear the safety stop of the side rack.Then lower
the shelf horizontally and slide all the way into the oven.Other shelves can be installed by this way.
Guidelines for using the cooktop burners
There are dual ring burners have the same low turn-down setting (SIM) for gentle simmering (680
BTU/hr). Use the SIM setting for melting chocolate and butter, cooking rice and delicate sauces,
simmering soups and stews, and keeping cooked food hot.
Never leave the cooktop unattended when in use. Boilover causes smoking and greasy spills that may
Never allow flames to extend beyond cookware or curl up its sides. This could discolor and damage the
utensil and you may get burned touching a hot handle.
Keep handles out of the way. Turn handles so that they don’t extend over the edge of the range or
another burner that is on.
Take care when deep-frying. Oil or fat can overheat very quickly, particularly on a high setting.
Make sure that all burner parts are properly in place. Incorrectly or incompletely assembled burners
may produce dangerous flames. See ‘Replacing the burner parts’ in ‘Care and cleaning’.
Keep the burners clean. Especially after a spill or boilover, make sure you clean the affected burners
before using them again. Food residue may clog the igniter and the notches of the flame spreader,
stopping the burner from functioning correctly. See ‘Care and cleaning’ for instructions.
Check that the burner flames are regular. They should be blue with no yellow tipping, and burn without
fluttering all around the burner cap. If not, see ‘Troubleshooting’ for advice.
Surface Burner Ignition
To light the top burners, push and turn the appropriate control knob counter clockwise to the ‘HI’
position. You will hear a clicking noise–the sound of the electric spark igniting the burner.Once burner
ignition has been achieved, then turn the burner control knob to adjust the desired heat setting.
NOTE: When one burner is turned to the ‘HI’ position, the burner ignition will spark. Do not attempt to
disassemble or clean around any burner while another burner is on. Do not touch any burner cap,
burner base, or igniter while the ignitor is sparking.
Simmer and Boil
1. A smaller flame will give the best simmer results. Small flames offer precise cooking performance for
delicate foods, keeping food warm, melting chocolate or butter, and for cooking that need to cook over
low heat for a long time.
2. The highest (larger) flame settings provide the maximum heat that is available on your range. This
setting should be used for heavy cooking loads such as water boiling or pasta cooking.
Flame Size
When you select the flame size, watch the flame when you turn the knob.
Any flame larger than the bottom of the cookware is wasted.
The flame should be steady and blue in color. Foreign material in the gas line may cause an orange flame
during initial operation.
Power Failure
If the gas does not ignite within four seconds, turn off the valve and allow at least five minutes for any
gas to dissipate. Repeat the lighting procedure.
If the power fails, it is not capable of being safely placed in operation and user that no attempt should
be made to operate during power failure.
To prevent the cooktop from discoloring or staining, clean cooktop after each use, and wipe up acidic or
sugary spills as soon as the cooktop has cooled.
The sealed burners of your range are not sealed to your cooktop and are designed to be removed. Boil
overs or spills will not seep underneath the cooktop. The burners should be cleaned after each use.
Burner Grates
The grates must be properly positioned before cooking. Improper installation of the grates may result in
scratching of the cooktop and / or poor combustion.
Oven Use
Oven bake heat element operation

Oven broil heat element operation
Push and turn the appropriate control knob counter clockwise to the ‘ broil’ position, Only the top heat
element start to turn red gradually, which means that it is heating, the oven indicator light will light,
when you need to turn it off, just turn the control knob clockwise back to ‘OFF’ position, the oven
indicator light does not light or turn the control konb clockwise to the temperature position (150℉to
500℉), which the down heat element operation, the oven indicator light will also light.
Oven cooking guidelines
The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven, and should not be blocked or covered.
Blocking or covering the vent will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking and cleaning results. Do
not set plastics, paper or other items that could melt or burn near the oven vent.
Use all the oven modes with the oven door closed.
Never use aluminum foil to cover the oven shelves or to line the floor of the oven. The trapped heat can
irreversibly damage the enamel and may even cause fire.
Do not place water, ice, or any dish or tray directly on the oven floor, as this will irreversibly damage the
Do not use plastic wrap or wax paper in the oven.
For food safety reasons, do not leave food in the oven for longer than two hours before and after
cooking or defrosting. This is to avoid contamination by organisms which may cause food poisoning.
Take particular care during warmer weather.
According to the United Sates Department of Agriculture: DO NOT hold foods at
temperatures between 40 ℉ to 140℉ more than 2 hours. Cooking raw foods below 275 ℉ is not
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 air flow through the oven and may cause
carbon monoxide poisoning.
Aluminum foil lining may also trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
Oven Temperature
While in use, the oven elements will cycle on and off as needed to maintain a consistent temperature,
but they may run slightly hot or cool at any point in time due to this cycling. Opening the oven door
while in use will release the hot air and cool the oven which could impact the cooking time and
performance. It is recommended to use the oven light to monitor cooking progress.
Oven Function
Natural Airflow Bake
Occurs when heat is transferred into the oven from the bake burners in the bottom of the oven
cavity.Heat is then circulated by natural airflow.This is a traditional bake setting.
Infrared Broil
The broil burner is located at the top of the oven. This burner heats the metal screen until it glows. The
glowing screen produces the infrared heat, searing the outside of broiled foods and sealing in juices.
Convection Bake
Heat is transferred from the bake burners in the bottom of the oven cavity to the oven cavity itself. The
convection fan in the rear of the oven then circulates it. This convection process provides more even
heat distribution throughout the oven cavity. Multiple rack use is possible for the largest baking job.
Convection cooking is faster, can be accomplished at lower temperatures and provides more even
temperatures than with regular cooking.
Position the oven bottom cover and the oven shelf/shelves before using oven. And remove any unused
shelves and baking utensils from the oven.
Preheat the oven to the temperature stated in the recipe before most baking, depending on the
temperature and the size of the oven.
Arrange pans and food items evenly on the shelves. Make sure pans do not touch each other or the
sides of the oven. When baking a single item, always center the item on the oven shelf. If baking on
multiple shelves, make sure you stagger items on the shelves so that one is never directly above
CONVECTION, either reduce the temperature stated in the recipe and leave the baking time unchanged,
or reduce the baking time by several minutes and leave the temperature unchanged. For foods with a
baking time of over an hour, reducing both the temperature and time slightly may give the best results.
Dark metal baking pans or those with a dull finish absorb heat faster than shiny pans, and are excellent
for pies and breads, or anything that needs browning or a crisper crust.
A shiny finish may work best for foods that require lighter, delicate browning (e.g. cakes and cookies), as
it reflects some heat and gives a less intense baking surface.
Avoid opening the oven door frequently during baking.
Convection Roast
The convection fan circulates the heated air evenly over and around the food. Using the cover and
broiler pan provided, heated air will be circulated over the around the food being roasted. The heated
air seals in juices quickly for a moist and tender product while, at the same time, creating a rich golden
brown exterior. When convection roasting, it is important that you use the broiler pan for best
convection roasting results. The pan is used to catch grease spills and has a cover to prevent grease
Use the broil/roast pan and slotted grid supplied with the range when roasting, elevating the meat on a
metal roasting rack. This allows hot air to circulate around the meat, giving a more even browning and a
result similar to a rotisserie.
When roasting larger items like a whole turkey, use only the pan and grid for greater stability.
Convection Defrost
Turn on the convection fan in the rear of the oven circulatesthe air. The fan accelerates natural
defrosting of the food without heat. To avoid illness and food waste, do not allow defrost food to
remain in the oven for more than two hours without being cooked.
To thaw uncooked frozen food, set the oven temperature to 100-150°F . Once thawed, cook the food
immediately and do not refreeze.
To prevent liquid from thawing food dripping on the oven floor, be sure any uncooked food is tightly
wrapped in foil and/or placed in a container.
Convection Dehydrate
With the temperature control on 175 F, warm air is radiated from the bake heat element in the bottom
of the oven and is circulated by a convection fan in the rear of the oven. Over a period of time, the
water is removed from the food by evaporation. Removal of water inhibits growth of microorganisms
and retards the enzymes activity.
Oven top heat element operation
Note: Door must be closed during upper heat element operation
Broiling is a method of cooking tender cuts of meat directly under the broiler in the oven. Broiling in the
oven is accomplished with the oven door closed. It is normal and necessary for some smoke to be
present to give the food a broiled flavor.
If you open the oven door to check the food, have it open for as short a time as possible. This is to
prevent the control panel from overheating.
Use both the broil/roast pan and slotted grid supplied. The grid helps to reduce smoking and splatter by
letting grease drip into the bottom of the pan, away from intense heat. To prevent food sticking, spray
the grid with a light coating of non-stick cooking spray.
Preheating is suggested when searing rare steaks (Remove the broiler pan before preheating with the
infrared broiler. Foods will stick on hard metal). To preheat, turn the “Oven” selector knob to the ‘Broil’
position. Wait for the burner to become hot, approximately 2 minutes. Preheating is not necessary
when broiling meat well-done.
To Broil
Broil one side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and serve. Always
pull the rack out to the “stop” position before turning or removing food.
Setting Broil
The ‘Oven’ selector knob controls the Broil feature. When broiling, heat radiates downward from the
oven broiler for even coverage. The Broil feature temperature is 500℉(260℃).
The broil pan and insert used together allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the high
heat of the oven broiler. DO NOT use the broil pan without the insert.
DO NOT cover the broil pan insert with foil. The exposed grease could catch fire.
To set the oven to Broil:
1. Place the broiler pan insert on the broiler pan. Then place the food on the broiler pan insert.
2. Arrange the interior oven rack and place the broiler pan on the rack. Be sure to center the broiler pan
and position directly under the broil burner. If preheating the broil burner first, position the broiler pan
after the broil burner is preheated.
3. Turn selector knob to Broil.
The oven indicator light will remain on until the selector knob is turned to the off position or the
temperature control cycles off.
Broiling guidelines
Choose a suitable shelf position. To ensure that meat is cooked through rather than just browned on the
outside, broil thick pieces of meat and poultry on shelf positions 2 or 3. Use shelf position 4 for thinner
items that need less cooking time like steaks, chops, or hamburger patties.
When finishing off meals by browning the top under the broiler, use metal or glass-ceramic bakeware.
Do not use heatproof glass or earthenware, as these cannot withstand the intense heat of the broiler.
Center the item in the oven, so that it is directly under the broiler.
Griddle Use
For the models with Griddle
Before Using the Griddle
1. Clean the griddle throughly with warm, soapy water to remove dust or any protective coating.
2. Rinse with clean water and wipe off to dry with soft, clean, lint-free cloth.
3. A stainless steel cover that is sized to fit on top of the surface when the griddle is not being used is
provided. Please note that the cover must be removed before turning the griddle on.
4. Make sure the grease tray is under the front edge of the griddle. Position the tray under the griddle
overhang to catch grease or food residue.
Use of the griddle
1. Push and turn the control knob counter-clockwise to the preferred cooking temperature.
2. Preheat the griddle for 10-12 minutes.
3. When the griddle is preheated to the desired temperature, the indicator light will turn on.
4. Butter or cooking oil can be added for more flavor, then plate the food to cook.
Caution: The surface of the griddle is hot after use. Please allow sufficient time for the griddle to cool
prior to cleaning.
When using the appliance or the first time. The oven and broiler burners should be
turned on to burn off the manufacturing oils. Turn the oven on to 450 F(230 C) for 20 to 30 minutes.
Then turn the oven control knob to “Broil” for the same length of time. It is recommended to turn on the
ventilator above the range at this time.
Must be sured disconnect the electrical supply before servicing or cleaning the appliance. Failure to
follow this advice may result in injury or death.
