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.
Troubleshooting Tips
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
Consumer Support
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following:
2
■ Use this appliance only for its intended
purpose as described in this Owner’s
Manual.
■ Be sure your appliance is properly
installed and grounded by a qualified
installer in accordance with the provided
installation instructions.
■ Have the installer show you the location of
the circuit breaker or fuse. Mark it for easy
reference.
■ 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.
■ 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 or
cooktop. They could damage the range
and even tip it over, causing severe
personal injury.
WARNING!
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Do not operate the oven or cooktop controls if the glass is broken. Food splatter or cleaning solution
may penetrate a broken control panel or cooktop and create a risk of electrical shock. Contact a
qualified technician immediately should your glass control panel or cooktop become broken.

COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY…
Care and Cleaning
children should not be stored in cabinets
above a range or on the back of a range—
children climbing on the range to reach
items could be seriously injured.
■ 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.
■ 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 in place of pot holders.
■ 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 using a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ 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.
■ 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 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.
■ Keep the hood and grease filters clean
to maintain good venting and to avoid
grease fires.
■ 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.
Operating Instructions
■ Do not store flammable materials in an
oven or near the cooktop.

RADIANT SURFACE 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.
■ Never leave the surface units unattended
at high heat settings. Boilovers cause
smoking and greasy spillovers that may
catch on fire.
■ 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.
■ When preparing flaming foods under the
hood, turn the fan on.
■ Use care when touching the cooktop. The
glass surface of the cooktop will retain heat
after the controls have been turned off.
■ Keep an eye on foods being fried at high
or medium high heat settings.
■ 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.

■ Avoid scratching the glass cooktop. The
cooktop can be scratched with items such
as sharp instruments, rings or other jewelry,
and rivets on clothing.
■ Large scratches or impacts to glass
doors or cooktops can lead to broken
or shattered glass.
■ Do not operate the radiant surface units if
the glass is broken. Spillovers or cleaning
solution may penetrate a broken cooktop
and create a risk of electrical shock.
Contact a qualified technician immediately
should your glass cooktop become broken.
■ Never use the glass cooktop surface as a
cutting board.
■ Do not place or store items that can melt
or catch fire on the glass cooktop, even
when it is not being used.
■ Be careful when placing spoons or other
stirring utensils on glass cooktop surface
when it is in use. They may become hot
and could cause burns.
■ Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet
sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a
hot surface unit, be careful to avoid steam
burns. Some cleaners can produce
noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
NOTE: We recommend that you avoid
wiping any surface unit areas until they
have cooled and the indicator light has
gone off. Sugar spills are the exception to
this. Please see the Cleaning the glass
cooktop section.
■ When the cooktop is cool, use only the
CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic Cooktop
Cleaner and the CERAMA BRYTE
Ceramic Cooktop Cleaning Pad to clean
the cooktop.
■ To avoid possible damage to the cooking
surface, do not apply cleaning cream to
the glass surface when it is hot.
■ After cleaning, use a dry cloth or paper
towel to remove all cleaning cream
residue.
■ Read and follow all instructions and
warnings on the cleaning cream labels.
WARNING!
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.
■ 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.
■ 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.
Operating Instructions
■ Do not heat unopened food containers.
Pressure could build up and the container
could burst, causing an injury.
■ 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.
■ Do not use aluminum foil to line oven
bottoms, except as suggested in this
manual. Improper installation of
aluminum foil may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire.
SELF-CLEANING OVEN
Do not use oven cleaners. 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.
■ Before self-cleaning the oven, remove
the racks, broiler pan, grid and other
cookware.
■ Clean only parts listed in this Owner’s
Manual.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions,
turn the oven off and disconnect the
power supply. Have it serviced by a
qualified technician.
Care and Cleaning
■ 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.
■ 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.

from manufacturers such as Ball® and
Kerr® and the Department of Agriculture
Extension Service.
To prevent burns from steam or heat,
use caution when canning.
Observe the Following Points in Canning
Right!
Note: Flat-bottomed canners are
required for glass cooktops.
HOWEVER, DO NOT USE LARGEDIAMETER CANNERS OR OTHER
LARGE-DIAMETER POTS FOR
FRYING OR BOILING FOODS
OTHER THAN WATER. Most syrup or
sauce mixtures—and all types of
frying—cook at temperatures much
higher than boiling water. Such
temperatures could eventually harm
the glass cooktop surfaces.
(1) using a pressure canner and
( 2) starting with HOT tap water for fastest
heating of large quantities of water.
CAUTION:
■ Safe canning requires that harmful
microorganisms are destroyed and that
the jars are sealed completely. When
canning foods in a water-bath canner,
a gentle but steady boil must be
maintained for the required time. When
canning foods in a pressure canner, the
pressure must be maintained for the
required time.
■ After you have adjusted the controls,
it is very important to make sure the
prescribed boil or pressure levels are
maintained for the required time.
■ Since you must make sure to process
the canning jars for the prescribed
time, with no interruption in processing
time, do not can on any cooktop
surface unit if your canner is not flat.
Troubleshooting Tips
Flat-bottomed canners must be
used. Do not use canners with
flanged or rippled bottoms (often
found in enamelware) because
they don’t make enough contact
with the surface units and take a
long time to boil water.
NOTE: If your house has low voltage,
canning may take longer than expected,
even though directions have been
carefully followed. The process time will
be shortened by:
Care and Cleaning
Be sure the canner fits over the
center of the surface unit. If your
cooktop or its location does not
allow the canner to be centered
on the surface unit, use smallerdiameter pots for good canning
results.
Remember that canning is a
process that generates large
amounts of steam. To avoid burns
from steam or heat, be careful
when canning.
Operating Instructions
Wrong!
Pots that extend beyond 1″ of the
surface unit’s circle are not
recommended for most surface
cooking. However, when canning
with water-bath or pressure canner,
larger-diameter pots may be used.
This is because boiling water
temperatures (even under pressure)
are not harmful to the cooktop
surfaces surrounding the surface units.

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.
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
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.

Safety Instructions
Using the self-cleaning oven.
Operating Instructions
Wipe up heavy soil on the oven
bottom.
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 the racks, broiler pan, broiler
grid, all cookware and any aluminum foil
from the oven.
The oven racks 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 wellventilated room.
