unit is ON, the surface unit will turn back ON as soon
as power is restored. In the event of power loss, failure
to turn all surface unit knobs to the OFF position may
result in ignition of items on or near the cooktop leading
to serious injury or death.
RADIANT COOKTOP SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
„ Use care when touching the cooktop. The glass surface
of the cooktop will retain heat after the controls have
been turned off.
WARNING
„ Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, earthenware
or other glazed containers are suitable for cooktop
service; others may break because of the sudden
change in temperature.
„
Use CERAMA BRYTE® ceramic Cooktop Cleaner and
CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Pad to clean the cooktop.
Wait until the cooktop cools and the indicator light
goes out before cleaning. A wet sponge or cloth on a
hot surface can cause steam burns. Some cleaners
can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
NOTE: Sugar spills are an exception. They should be
scraped off while still hot using an oven mitt and a
scraper. See the Cleaning the glass cooktop section for
detailed instructions.
„ Read and follow all instructions and warnings on the
cleaning cream label.
COIL COOKTOP SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
„ Do not immerse or soak the removable surface units.
Do not put them in a dishwasher. Do not self-clean the
surface units in an oven. Doing so may cause them to
fail, presenting a burn or fire hazard.
„ To avoid the possibility of a burn or electric shock, always
be certain that the controls for all surface units are at the
OFF position and all coils are cool before attempting to lift
4 or remove a coil surface unit.
„
Be sure the drip pans are not covered and are in place.
Their absence during cooking could damage range
parts and wiring.
„
Do not use aluminum foil to line drip pans. Foil can trap
heat or melt, resulting in damage to the product and a
shock or fire hazard.
GEAppliances.com

Using the surface units.
GEAppliances.com
Throughout this manual, features and appearance may vary from your model.
How to Set
Push the knob in and turn in either direction to
the setting you want.
At both OFF and HI the control clicks into
position. You may hear slight clicking sounds
during cooking, indicating the control is keeping
the power level you set.
Be sure you turn the control knob
to OFF when you finish cooking.
A surface unit ON indicator light will glow when
any surface unit is on.
Surface Cookware Tips
Use medium- or heavy-weight cookware.
Aluminum cookware conducts heat faster
than other metals. Cast-iron and coated castiron cookware are slow to absorb heat, but
generally cook evenly at low to medium heat
settings. Steel pans may cook unevenly if not
combined with other metals.
For best cooking results, pans should be flat on
the bottom. Match the size of the saucepan to
the size of the surface unit. The pan should not
extend over the edge of the surface unit more
than 1”.
Not over 1s.
Wok Cooking
We recommend that you use only a flatbottomed wok. They are available at your local
retail store.
Do not use woks that have support rings. Use
of these types of woks, with or without the ring
in place, can be dangerous.
Placing the ring over the surface unit will
cause a build-up of heat that will damage the
porcelain cooktop. Do not try to use such woks
without the ring. You could be seriously burned
if the wok tipped over.
Use only flat-bottomed woks.
Deep Fat Frying
Do not overfill cookware with fat that may spill
over when adding food. Frosty foods bubble
vigorously.
Watch food frying at high temperatures. Keep
range and hood clean from grease.

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 yourself.
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 degrees.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling or the self-cleaning temperatures. The adjustment will be retained in
memory after a power failure.
To Adjust the Thermostat
Press the BAKE and BROIL HI/LO pads at
the same time for 3 seconds until the
display shows SF.
Press the BAKE pad. A two digit number
shows in the display.
The oven temperature can be adjusted up
to (+) 35°F hotter or (-) 35°F cooler.
Press the INCREASE pad to increase the
temperature in 1 degree increments.
Press the DECREASE pad to decrease the
temperature in 1 degree increments.
When you have made the adjustment,
press the START pad to go back to the
time of day display. Use your oven as you
would normally.

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.
16
Using the self-cleaning oven.
GEAppliances.com
The oven door must be closed and all controls must be set correctly for the cycle to work properly.
CAUTION:
Never place cooking utensils, baking stones, foil, or any other items on the oven floor. Even items
rated for high temperature may permanently adhere to oven bottom or cause heat damage to the oven, flooring, or items
in storage drawers.
Before a 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 racks, broiler pan, broiler grid, all
cookware and any aluminum foil from the
oven.
Wipe up heavy soil on the oven
bottom. (appearance may vary)
The shiny, silver-colored oven racks (on some
models) can be self-cleaned, but they will
darken, lose their luster and become hard to
slide.
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 steel-wool 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.
Wipe up any heavy spillovers on the oven
bottom.
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.
How to Set the Oven for Cleaning
Press the SELF CLEAN pad.
Using the INCREASE or DECREASE pads,

After a Clean Cycle
You may notice some white ash in the oven.
Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the oven
cools.
If white spots remain, remove them with a
soap-filled steel wool pad and rinse thoroughly
with a vinegar and water mixture.
These deposits are usually a salt residue that
cannot be removed by the clean cycle.
If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle,
repeat the cycle.
18

Care and cleaning of the range.
GEAppliances.com
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.
WARNING
How to Remove Protective Shipping Film and Packaging Tape
Carefully grasp a corner of the protective
shipping film with your fingers and slowly peel
it from the appliance surface. Do not use any
sharp items to remove the film. Remove all of
the film before using the appliance for the first
time.
To assure no damage is done to the finish
of the product, the safest way to remove
the adhesive from packaging tape on new
appliances is an application of a household
liquid dishwashing detergent. Apply with a soft
cloth and allow to soak.
NOTE: The adhesive must be removed from all
parts. It cannot be removed if it is baked on.
Control Panel
It’s a good idea to wipe the control panel after
each use. Clean with mild soap and water or
vinegar and water, rinse with clean water and
polish dry with a soft cloth.

and hot water works well.
Control Knobs
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
cleaning.
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.

ensure proper placement.
Oven Vent
The oven is vented through an opening under
the right rear surface unit.
Never cover the opening with aluminum foil or
any other material.
Porcelain Enamel Cooktop
The porcelain enamel finish is sturdy but
breakable if misused. This finish is acidresistant. However, any acidic foods spilled
(such as fruit juices, tomato or vinegar) should
not be permitted to remain on the finish.
If acids spill on the cooktop while it is hot, use
a dry paper towel or cloth to wipe it up right
away. When the surface has cooled, wash with
soap and water. Rinse well.
For other spills such as fat spatterings, wash
with soap and water or cleansing powders
after the surface has cooled. Rinse well. Polish
with a dry cloth.
19
Care and cleaning of the range.
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.
Lift-Off Oven Door
The oven door is removable for easier access to
the light bulb.
Do not lift the door by the handle.
To remove the door, open it to the broil stop
position. Grasp firmly on each side and lift the
door straight up and off the hinges.
Lift the door straight up and off the
hinges.
Do not place hands between the hinge and the
oven door frame.
To replace the door, make sure the hinges are
in the broil stop position. Position the slots in the
bottom of the door squarely over the hinges
and slowly lower it over both hinges.
To clean the inside of the door:
„ Because the area inside the gasket is
cleaned during the self-clean cycle, you do
not need to clean this by hand.
(appearance may vary)
The gasket is designed with a gap
at the bottom to allow for proper air
circulation.
Do not rub or clean the door

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.
20
„ The area outside the gasket and the front
frame can be cleaned with a soap-filled steel
wool or plastic pad, hot water and detergent.
Rinse well with a vinegar and water solution.
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. Do
not let water drip into the vent openings.
„ Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato
sauces and basting materials containing
acids may cause discoloration and should be
wiped up immediately. When surface is cool,
clean and rinse.
„ Do not use oven cleaners, cleaning powders
or harsh abrasives on the outside of the
door.

Place them in a covered container (or a plastic
bag) with 1/4 cup ammonia to loosen the soil.
Then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad if
necessary. Rinse with clean water and polish
with a clean soft cloth.
Clean the area under the drip pans often. Builtup 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.
Lift-Up Cooktop
Clean the area under the cooktop often. Built-up
soil, especially grease, may catch fire.
To make cleaning easier, the entire cooktop
may be lifted up and supported in the up
position.
