IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
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.

Troubleshooting Tips
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.
SURFACE COOKING UNITS
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.
■ Always turn the surface units off before
removing cookware.
3
Consumer Support
■ Never leave the surface units unattended
at high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
■ Do not use aluminum foil to line the drip pans
or anywhere in the oven, except as described in
this manual. Misuse could result in a shock, fire
hazard or damage to the range.
■ Be sure the drip pans and the vent duct are not
covered and are in place. Their absence during
cooking could damage range parts and wiring.
Care and Cleaning
using a multi-purpose dry chemical or foamtype fire extinguisher.
■ Flame in the oven can be smothered completely
by closing the oven door and turning the oven
off or by using a multi-purpose dry chemical or
foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ 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.
■ Potentially hot surfaces include the cooktop,
areas facing the cooktop, oven vent opening,
surfaces near the opening, crevices around the
oven door.
■ 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.
Operating Instructions
■ For your safety, never use your appliance for
warming or heating the room.
■ Teach children not to play with the controls or
any other part of the range.
■ Always keep dish towels, dish cloths, pot holders
and other linens a safe distance from your
range.
■ Always keep wooden and plastic utensils and
canned food a safe distance from
your range.
■ Always keep combustible wall coverings,
curtains or drapes a safe distance from your
range.
■ Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
■ Keep the hood and grease filters clean to
maintain good venting and to avoid grease fires.
■ 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 multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ Flaming grease outside a pan can be put out by
covering it with baking soda or, if available, by

SURFACE COOKING UNITS (cont.)
■ Do not immerse or soak the removable surface
units. Do not put them in a dishwasher. Do not
self-clean the surface units in the oven.
■ When preparing flaming foods under the hood,
turn the fan on.
■ 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 or remove
a unit.
■ Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet sponge
is used to wipe spills on a hot cooktop, be
careful to avoid steam burns.
■ Keep an eye on foods being fried at high or
medium high heat settings.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
■ 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.

saucepan to the size of the surface unit.
The pan should not extend over the
edge of the surface unit more than 1″.
Care and Cleaning
1″
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.
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.
Operating Instructions
At both OFF and HI the control clicks

clicking sounds during cooking,
indicating the control is maintaining your
desired setting.
Safety Instructions
Using the surface units.
Do not use round bottom woks. You
could be seriously burned if the wok
tipped over.
Troubleshooting Tips
Placing the ring over the surface unit will
cause a buildup of heat that will damage
the porcelain cooktop.
Use only flat-bottomed woks.
Home Canning Tips
Be sure the canner is centered over the
surface unit.
Make sure the canner is flat on the
bottom.
Consumer Support
Use recipes and procedures from
reputable sources. These are available
from manufacturers such as Ball® and
Kerr® and the Department of Agriculture

Preheating and Pan Placement
Consumer Support
Center baking pans in the oven.
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it.
Preheating is necessary for good results when
baking cakes, cookies, pastry and breads.
The Display will show “PrE” while preheating. When
the oven reaches the selected temperature, the oven
control will beep and the display will show the oven
temperature.
Baking results will be better if baking pans are
centered in the oven as much as possible. If
baking with more than one pan, place the
pans so each has at least 1 to 11⁄2″ of air space
around it. If baking four cake layers at the
same time, place two layers on rack B and two
layers on rack D. Stagger pans on the rack so
one is not directly above the other.
Aluminum Foil
Do not use aluminum foil on the bottom of the oven.
Never entirely cover a shelf with aluminum
foil. This will disturb the heat circulation and
result in poor baking.
8
A smaller sheet of foil may be used to catch
a spillover by placing it on a lower shelf several
inches below the food.
Do not latch the oven door during broiling. The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
How to Set the Oven for Broiling
Place the meat or fish on a broiler
grid in a broiler pan designed
for broiling.
Follow suggested shelf positions in
the Broiling Guide.
To change to LO Broil, touch the
BROIL HI/LO pad again.
Touch the START/ON pad.
When broiling is finished, touch the

Adjust the oven thermostat—Do it 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 yourself.
Do not use thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores, to check the temperature setting of your oven.

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.

Cleaning the Oven Door
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.
■ The area outside the gasket and
the door liner can be cleaned with a
soap-filled or plastic scouring 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
