WARNING!
For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire or
explosion, electric shock, or to prevent property damage, personal injury, or loss of life.
ANTI-TIP DEVICE
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, remove
the storage drawer or kick panel and look underneath the range
to see that the leveling leg is engaged in the bracket. On models
without a storage drawer or kick panel, carefully tip the range
forward. The bracket should stop the range within 4 inches. If it
does not, the bracket must be reinstalled. 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.
For free-standing or slide-in ranges, never completely remove
the leveling legs or the range will not be secured to the anti-tip
device properly.
If you did not receive an anti-tip bracket with your purchase,
call 1.800.626.8774 to receive one at no cost (in Canada,
call 1.800.561.3344). For installation instructions of the bracket,
visit GEAppliances.com (in Canada, GEAppliances.ca).

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
Troubleshooting Tips
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.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following:
Use this appliance only for its intended purpose
as described in this Owner’s Manual.
Consumer Support
Be sure your appliance is properly installed
and grounded by a qualified technician in
accordance with the provided installation
instructions.
Do not attempt to repair or replace any
part of your range unless it is specifically
recommended in this manual. All other
servicing should be referred to a qualified
technician.
Before performing any service, disconnect
the range power supply at the household
distribution panel by removing the fuse
or switching off the circuit breaker.
2
Do not leave children alone—children should
not be left alone or unattended in an area
where an appliance is in use. They should
never be allowed to sit or stand on any part
of the appliance.
Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang
on the door, storage drawer, warming drawer,
or cooktop. They could damage the range and
even tip it over, causing severe personal injury.
Do not store flammable materials in an oven
or near the cooktop.
CAUTION:
Items of interest
to children should not be stored in cabinets
above a range or on the backsplash of
a range—children climbing on the range
to reach items could be seriously injured.
COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY…
Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meat to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 160°F and poultry
to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 180°F. Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against
foodborne illness.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Never wear loose-fitting or hanging garments
while using the appliance. Be careful when
reaching for items stored over the range.
Flammable material could be ignited if brought
in contact with hot surface units or heating
elements and may cause severe burns.
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.
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.
Flame in the oven or warming drawer can be
smothered completely by closing the door
and turning the oven off or by using a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type fire
extinguisher.
REMEMBER: The inside surface of the oven
may be hot when the door is opened.
Do not store or use combustible materials,
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.
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 under the warming
drawer or storage drawer.

Troubleshooting Tips
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 well-fitting
lid, cookie sheet or flat tray. Use a multipurpose 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.
Care and Cleaning
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.
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.

Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
Keep the oven vent unobstructed.
Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
Place the oven rack in the desired position
while the oven is cool. If racks must be
handled when hot, do not let pot holder
contact the heating elements.
Pulling out the rack 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.
When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
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.
Care and Cleaning
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.
Clean only parts listed in this Owner’s Manual.
Consumer Support
Troubleshooting Tips
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.
4
Before self-cleaning the oven, remove any
broiler pan, grid and other cookware.
Be sure to wipe up excess spillage before
starting the self-cleaning operation.
If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions, turn
the oven off and disconnect the power supply.
Have it serviced by a qualified technician.
Take the racks out of the oven before
you begin the self-clean cycle or they
may discolor.
WARMING DRAWER (on some models)
The purpose of the warming drawer is to hold
hot cooked foods at serving temperature.
Always start with hot food; cold food cannot
be heated or cooked in the warming drawer.
Do not leave paper products, cooking utensils
or food in the warming drawer when not
in use.
Never leave jars or cans of fat drippings in
or near your warming drawer.
Always keep wooden and plastic utensils and
canned food a safe distance away from your
warming drawer.
Do not warm food in the warming drawer
for more than two hours.
REMEMBER: The inside surface of the
warming drawer may be hot when the
drawer is opened.
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 which escapes can cause burns
to hands, face and/or eyes.
Do not use aluminum foil to line the drawer.
Foil is an excellent heat insulator and will
trap heat beneath it. This will upset the
performance of the drawer and it could
damage the interior finish.
Care and Cleaning
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.
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.
Do not flame foods on the cooktop. If you do
flame foods under the 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.

Consumer Support
Always turn the surface units off before
removing cookware.
Keep an eye on foods being fried at high or
medium high heat settings.
Troubleshooting Tips
Never leave the surface units unattended at
high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.

recommended for cast-iron cookware
that is not completely covered with smooth
porcelain enamel, as it may scratch the
glass-ceramic cooktop.
Troubleshooting Tips
Pans with rounded, curved,
ridged or warped bottoms are
not recommended.
The following information will help you choose cookware which will give good performance on coil cooktops.
Surface Cookware Tips
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.
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.

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.
Preheating and Pan Placement
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it.
To preheat, set the oven at the correct
temperature. Preheating is necessary for
good results when baking cakes, cookies,
pastry and breads.
Baking results will be better if baking
pans are centered in the oven as much as
possible. Pans should not touch each other
or the walls of the oven. If you need to use
two racks, stagger the pans so one is
not directly above the other, and leave
approximately 11⁄ 2″ from the front
of the pan to the front of the rack.
Aluminum Foil
Do not use aluminum foil on the bottom
of the oven.
Never entirely cover a rack with aluminum
foil. This will disturb the heat circulation and
result in poor baking.
A smaller sheet of foil may be used to
catch a spillover by placing it on a lower rack
several inches below the food.
If your range is connected
to 208 volts, rare steaks
may be broiled by preheating
the broiler and positioning
the oven rack one position higher.
On models with an oven temperature knob:
Place the meat or fish on a broiler grid
in a broiler pan.
Follow suggested rack positions
in the Broiling Guide.
Close the oven door.
Turn the Oven Temperature Knob to
BROIL.
When broiling is finished, turn the
Oven Temperature Knob to OFF.
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/ON pad.
When broiling is finished, touch
the CLEAR/OFF pad.

On models without an oven temperature knob:
Place the meat or fish on a broiler grid
in a broiler pan.
Follow suggested rack positions in the
Broiling Guide.
Leave the door open to the broil stop
position. The door stays open by itself,
yet the proper temperature is
maintained in the oven.
Use LO Broil to cook foods such as poultry
or thick cuts of meat thoroughly without
over-browning them.

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.

Troubleshooting Tips
To Crisp Stale Items
Before a Clean Cycle
For the first self-clean cycle, we recommend
venting your kitchen with an open window or
using a ventilation fan or hood.
Remove the racks, any broiler pan, broiler
grid, all cookware and any aluminum foil
from the oven.
Wipe up heavy soil on the oven bottom.
The oven racks can be self-cleaned, but they
will darken, lose their luster and become hard
to slide.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners or oven
protectors in or near the self-cleaning oven.
A combination of any of these products plus
the high clean cycle temperatures may
damage the porcelain finish of the oven.
Care and Cleaning
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.

Care and cleaning of the range.
Be sure electrical power is off and all surfaces are cool before cleaning any part of the range.
WARNING: If your range is
removed for cleaning, servicing or any
reason, be sure the anti-tip device is
re-engaged properly when the range
is replaced. Failure to take this
precaution could result in tipping
of the range and cause injury.
Oven Interior (non-self clean models)
Operating Instructions
With proper care, the porcelain enamel
finish on the inside of the oven—top, bottom,
sides, back and inside of the door—will stay
new-looking 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.
Soap-filled scouring pads may also be used.
Consumer Support
Troubleshooting Tips
Care and Cleaning
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.
26
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 racks with an abrasive
cleanser or scouring pad. After cleaning,
rinse the racks with clean water and dry with
a clean cloth.
To make the racks slide more easily, apply a
small amount of vegetable oil or cooking oil
to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the
oven racks with the paper towel.
NOTE: Take the racks out of the oven before
you begin the self-clean cycle or they may
discolor.

Porcelain Enamel Cooktop (on some models)
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.
Lift-Up Cooktop (on some models)
Some models have a cooktop that can
be lifted up for easier cleaning. The entire
cooktop may be lifted up and supported in
the up position.
Be sure all surface units are turned off
before raising the cooktop.
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.
Be sure all the controls are turned to OFF and
the surface units are cool before attempting to
remove them.
