IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
■ 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
hot surface units or heating elements. Do
not use a towel or other bulky cloth.
Care and Cleaning
■ For your safety, never use your appliance
for warming or heating the room.
■ Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
■ Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick
up a flaming pan. Turn the controls off.
Smother a flaming pan on a surface unit by
covering the pan completely with a wellfitting lid, cookie sheet or flat tray. Use a
multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type
fire extinguisher.
■ Potentially hot surfaces include the cooktop,
areas facing the cooktop, oven vent opening,
surfaces near the opening, crevices around
the oven door and metal trim parts above
the door.
■ REMEMBER: The inside surface of the oven
may be hot when the door is opened.

gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
■ Keep the hood and grease filters clean
to maintain good venting and to avoid
grease fires.
■ Flaming grease outside a pan can be put
out by covering it with baking soda or,
if available, by using a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
Installation
Instructions
Consumer Support Troubleshooting Tips
■ Do not touch the surface units, the heating
elements or the interior surface of the oven.
These surfaces may be hot enough to burn
even though they are dark in color. During
and after use, do not touch, or let clothing
or other flammable materials contact, the
surface units, areas nearby the surface units
or any interior area of the oven; allow
sufficient time for cooling first.
■ Flame in the oven can be smothered
completely by closing the oven door and
turning the oven off or by using a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type fire
extinguisher.
OVEN
■ 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.
■ Pulling out the shelf to the stop-lock is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also
a precaution against burns from touching
hot surfaces of the door or oven walls.
■ Do not heat unopened food containers.
Pressure could build up and the container
could burst, causing an injury.
■ When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
■ Keep the oven vent unobstructed.
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
■ Place the oven shelf in the desired position
while the oven is cool. If shelves must be
handled when hot, do not let pot holder
contact the heating elements.
4
■ Do not use the oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch on fire.
■ Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in an oven can ignite.
■ Do not leave paper products, cooking
utensils or food in the oven when not in use.
SELF-CLEANING OVEN (on some models)
■ 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.
■ If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions,
turn the oven off and disconnect the power
supply. Have it serviced by a qualified
technician.
■ Take the shelves out of the oven before
you begin the self-clean cycle or they
may discolor.
Care and Cleaning
■ Do not use oven cleaners on self-clean
models. No commercial oven cleaner or
oven liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any part of
the oven. Residue from oven cleaners will
damage the inside of the oven when the
self-clean cycle is used.
■ Be sure to wipe up excess spillage before
starting the self-cleaning operation.
Operating
Instructions
■ Clean only parts listed in this Owner’s
Manual.
■ Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the
broiler pan, grid and other cookware.
SURFACE UNITS–ALL MODELS
Use proper pan size–select cookware having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit
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.
■ 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.
■ Always turn the surface units off before
removing cookware.
■ When preparing flaming foods under the
vent hood, turn the fan on.
■ Foods for frying should be as dry as possible.
Frost on frozen foods or moisture on fresh
foods can cause hot fat to bubble up and
over the sides of the pan.
■ Use little fat for effective shallow or deep fat
frying. Filling the pan too full of fat can
cause spillovers when food is added.
■ If a combination of oils or fats will be used in
frying, stir together before heating, or as fats
melt slowly.
■ Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
■ Use a deep fat thermometer whenever
possible to prevent overheating fat beyond
the smoking point.
5
Troubleshooting Tips Consumer Support
■ 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 surface units.
■ Keep an eye on foods being fried at high or
medium high heat settings.
Installation
Instructions
■ Never leave the surface units unattended at
high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.

point, thin-weight aluminum should not
be used.
Safety Instructions
Selecting types of cookware.
The following information will help you choose cookware which will give good performance on coil cooktops.
1″
Not over 1 inch
Use medium- or heavy-weight cookware.
Aluminum cookware conducts heat faster
than other metals. Cast-iron and coated
cast-iron 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 inch.
Wok Cooking
We recommend that you use only a flat-bottomed
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.
Use only flat-bottomed woks.
Placing the ring over the surface unit will
cause a buildup 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 tips over.

Aluminum Foil
Cut slits in the foil just like the grid.
You can use aluminum foil to line the
broiler pan and broiler grid. However,
you must mold the foil tightly to the
grid and cut slits in it just like the grid.
Aluminum foil may also be used to catch
a spillover. To do so, place a small sheet of
foil on a lower shelf several inches below
the food.
Never entirely cover a shelf with aluminum
foil. This will disturb the heat circulation
and result in poor baking.
Care and Cleaning
Never cover the oven bottom with
aluminum foil.
How to Set the Oven for Broiling (on models without an oven temperature knob)
Follow suggested shelf positions in the

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.

Consumer Support Troubleshooting Tips
Installation
Instructions
Care and Cleaning
Soap and water will normally do the job.
Heavy spattering or spillovers may require
cleaning with a mild abrasive cleaner.
Soap-filled scouring pads may also be used.
Do not allow food spills with a high
sugar or acid content (such as milk,
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 the package directions.
Do not spray oven cleaner 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 bakes.
Do not spray any oven cleaner on the oven door,
handles or any exterior surface of the oven, cabinets
or painted surfaces. The cleaner can damage these
surfaces.
Lift-Off Oven Door
Lift the door straight up and off the
hinges.
The oven door is removable for cleaning.
To clean the outside of the door:
Do not lift the door by the handle. Make sure the
oven is completely cool.
■ 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.
To remove the door, open it to the special
stop position. Grasp firmly on each side and
lift the door straight up and off the hinges.
Do not place hands between the hinge and the oven
door frame.
The gasket is designed with a gap
at the bottom to allow for proper
air circulation.
Because the area inside the gasket is
cleaned during the self-clean cycle,
you do not need to clean this by hand
on self-clean models.
The area outside the gasket and the
front frame can be cleaned with a
soap-filled steel-wool pad, hot water
and detergent. Rinse well with a
vinegar and water solution.
Do not rub or clean the door
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.
24
To replace the door, make sure the hinges
are in the special 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:
■ Do not allow excess water to run into any
holes or slots in the door.
■ Soap and water will normally do the job.
Heavy spattering or spillovers may require
cleaning with a mild abrasive cleaner.
Soap-filled, steel-wool pads may also
be used.
Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or acid
content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit
juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface. They
may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.
■ 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.
Oven Heating Elements
Do not clean the bake element or the broil element.
Any soil will burn off when the elements are heated.
To clean the oven floor, gently lift the bake
element. Clean with warm soapy water.
Clean the oven shelves with an abrasive
cleanser or scouring pad. After cleaning,
rinse the shelves with clean water and dry
with a clean cloth.
To make the shelves slide more easily, apply
a small amount of vegetable oil or cooking
oil to a paper towel and wipe the edges of
the oven shelves with the paper towel.
NOTE: Take the shelves out of the oven
before you begin the self-clean cycle or
they may discolor.

After broiling, remove the broiler pan from
the oven. Remove the grid from the pan.
Carefully pour out the grease from the pan
into a proper container.
The broiler pan may be cleaned with a
commercial oven cleaner. If the grid is grey
enamel, it can also be cleaned with an oven
cleaner.
Both the broiler pan and grid can also be
cleaned in the dishwasher.
Wash and rinse the broiler pan and grid
in hot water with a soap-filled or plastic
scouring pad.
Do not store a soiled broiler pan and grid anywhere
in the range.
If food has burned on, sprinkle the grid
with detergent while hot and cover with wet
paper towels or a dishcloth. Soaking the
pan will remove burned-on foods.
Do not clean the broiler
pan or grid in a self-cleaning oven.
CAUTION:
Storage Drawer Removal
To remove the storage drawer:
To replace the storage drawer:
Pull the drawer out all the way.

beyond the stop on range glides.
Tilt up the front and remove it.
Lift the drawer if necessary to insert
easily.
Clean under the range.
Let the front of the drawer down, then
push in to close.
Control Panel and Knobs
Pull the knob straight off the stem.
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.
The control knobs may be removed for
easier cleaning.
To remove a knob, pull it straight off the
stem. If a knob is difficult to remove, place
a towel or dishcloth between the knob and
control panel and pull gently. Wash the
knobs in soap and water or a vinegar and
hot water solution.
26
Before removing the knobs for cleaning,
please note that the knobs are in the OFF
position. When replacing the knobs, check
the OFF position to ensure proper placement.
Do not bend knobs by pulling them up or
down or by hanging a towel or other such
loads. This can damage the shaft.
Porcelain Enamel Cooktop (on some models)
The porcelain enamel finish is sturdy
but breakable if misused. This finish is
acid-resistant. 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.
Lift-Up Cooktop (on some models)
After cleaning under the cooktop with hot,
mild soapy water and a clean cloth, lower
the cooktop. Be careful not to pinch your
fingers.
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.
To lower the cooktop, push the rods back
and gently lower the cooktop until it rests
in place.
Surface Units (on some models)
Surface unit
Drip pan
To clean the surface units, turn the control
to the highest setting for a minute. The coils
will burn off any soil.
Do not lift the surface unit more than 1″. If you do,
it may not lie flat on the drip pan when you plug it
back in.
Repeated lifting of the surface unit more than
1 inch above the drip pan can permanently
damage the receptacle.
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 (on some models)
Remove the surface units. Then lift out the
drip pans.
Clean the area under the drip pans often.
Built-up soil, especially grease, may catch fire.
Place them in a covered container. Add
1/4 cup ammonia and let soak several
hours or overnight. Wash, rinse well
and dry.
Do not cover the drip pans with foil. Using foil so
close to the receptacle could cause shock, fire or
damage to the range.
The drip pans may also be cleaned in the
dishwasher.
NOTE: Do not clean the drip pans in a
self-cleaning oven.

CAUTION:
For personal safety,
do not use an extension cord with this
appliance. Remove house fuse or open circuit
breaker before beginning installation.
This appliance must be supplied with the
proper voltage and frequency, and connected
to an individual properly grounded branch
circuit, protected by a circuit breaker or fuse
having amperage as specified on the rating
plate. The rating plate is located above the
storage drawer on the oven frame.
Use only a 3-conductor or a 4-conductor
UL-listed range cord. These cords may be
provided with ring terminals on wire and
a strain relief device.
A range cord rated at 40 amps with 125/250
minimum volt range is required. A 50 amp
range cord is not recommended but if used, it
should be marked for use with nominal 13⁄8″
diameter connection openings. Care should
be taken to center the cable and strain relief
within the knockout hole to keep the edge
from damaging the cable.
We recommend you have the electrical wiring
and hookup of your range connected by a
qualified electrician. After installation, have
the electrician show you where your main
range disconnect is located.
Check with your local utilities for electrical
codes which apply in your area. Failure to
wire your oven according to governing codes
could result in a hazardous condition. If there
are no local codes, your range must be wired
and fused to meet the requirements of the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70–
Latest Edition. You can get a copy by writing:
• Because range terminals are not accessible
after range is in position, flexible service
conduit or cord must be used.
NOTE: If conduit is being used, go to Step 3D
and then to Step 6 or 7.
• On some models, a filter capacitor may be
connected between the black and white
leads on the junction block.
National Fire Protection Association
Batterymarch Park
