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.
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.
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
Consumer Support
■ 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.
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 or cooktop. They
could damage the range and even tip it over,
causing severe personal injury.
■ Large scratches or impacts to glass doors can
lead to broken or shattered glass.
■ 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.
WARNING!
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
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.
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.

completely with a well-fitting lid, cookie sheet or flat
tray. Use a multi-purpose dry chemical or foamtype 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 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
■ 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.
■ 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

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

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
into position. You may hear slight
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

Safety Instructions
Operating Instructions
Using the oven.
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the desired position before you turn the oven on.
Before you begin…
The oven has 7 shelf positions.
The shelves have stop-locks, so that when
placed correctly on the shelf supports (A
through G), they will stop before coming
completely out, and will not tilt.
When placing and removing cookware,
pull the shelf out to the bump on the
shelf support.
To remove a shelf, pull it toward you, tilt
the front end up and pull it out.
To replace, place the end of the shelf
(stop-locks) on the support, tilt up the
front and push the shelf in.
CAUTION:
When you are using the
shelf in the lowest position (A), you will need to
use caution when pulling the shelf out. We
recommend that you pull the shelf out several
inches and then, using two pot holders, pull the
shelf out by holding the sides of it. The shelf is
low and you could be burned if you place your
hand in the middle of the shelf and pull all the
way out. Be very careful not to burn your hand
on the door when using the shelf in the lowest
position (A).

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.
How to Set the Oven for Broiling—Close the oven door
Use LO Broil to cook foods such as
poultry or thick cuts of meat thoroughly
without over-browning them.
Place the meat or fish on a broiler
grid in a broiler pan designed
for broiling.
Touch the BROIL HI/LO pad once
for HI Broil.
The oven door must be closed
during broiling.
To change to LO Broil, touch the
BROIL HI/LO pad again.
If your range is connected to 208 volts, rare steaks
may be broiled by preheating the broiler and
positioning the oven shelf one position higher.

adjustment, touch the START/ON pad
to go back to the time of day display.

normally.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling
temperatures. It will be retained in memory after
a power failure.
Touch the – pad to decrease the
temperature in 1-degree increments.
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.

Be sure all controls are 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 re-engaged properly when the range is replaced. Failure to take this
precaution could result in tipping of the range and cause injury.
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 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.
Replace the knobs in the OFF position
to ensure proper placement.

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.

Porcelain Enamel Cooktop
Care and Cleaning
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.
Painted Surfaces
Painted surfaces include the sides and
the drawer front.
Clean these with soap and water or
a vinegar and water solution.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners,
cleaning powders, steel wool or harsh
abrasives on any painted surface.
Troubleshooting Tips
Oven Vent
The oven is vented through an opening
under the left rear surface unit.
The vent is important for proper air
circulation.
This area could become hot during oven use.
Never block this vent with aluminum foil.
Consumer Support
It is normal for steam to come out of the
vent and moisture may collect underneath
the coils when the oven is in use.
14
Porcelain Oven Interior
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.
Soap and water will normally do the job.
Heavy spattering or spillovers may
require cleaning with a mild abrasive
cleaner. Soapy, wet metal pads may also
be used.
Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or acid
content (such as tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices
or pie filling) to remain on the surface. They may
cause a dull spot even after cleaning.
■ 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.

Care and 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

Drip Pans
Place them in a covered container. Add
1/4 cup ammonia and let soak several
hours or overnight. Wash, rinse well
and dry.
Clean the area under the drip pans
often. Built-up 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.
The drip pans may also be cleaned in
a dishwasher.
Troubleshooting Tips
Remove the surface units. Then lift out
the drip pans.
Lift-Up Cooktop
Be sure all surface units are turned
off before raising the cooktop.
A support rod will hold the cooktop up
while you clean underneath it.
To make cleaning easier, the entire
cooktop may be lifted up and supported
in the up position.
After cleaning under the cooktop with
hot, soapy water and a clean cloth, lower
the cooktop. Be careful not to pinch
your fingers.
Be sure all the surface units are turned
