IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
When You Get Your Range
• Have the installer show you the location of the
range gas cut-off valve and how to shut it off
if necessary.
• Have your range installed and properly
grounded by a qualified installer, in accordance
with the Installation Instructions. Any adjustment
and service should be performed only by qualified
gas range installers or service technicians.
• Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of
your range unless it is specifically recommended
in this guide. All other servicing should be referred
to a qualified technician.
• Plug your range into a 120-volt grounded
outlet only. Do not remove the round grounding
prong from the plug. If in doubt about the grounding
of the home electrical system, it is your personal
responsibility and obligation to have an ungrounded
outlet replaced with a properly grounded, threeprong outlet in accordance with the National
Electrical Code. In Canada, the appliance must be
electrically grounded in accordance with the
Canadian Electrical Code. Do not use an extension
cord with this appliance.
• Locate the range out of kitchen traffic path
and out of drafty locations to prevent pilot
outage (on standing pilot models) and poor
air circulation.
Using Your Range
WARNING—
All ranges
can tip and injury could result. To
prevent accidental tipping of the
range, attach it to the wall by
installing the Anti-Tip device supplied.
To check if the device is installed and
engaged properly, carefully tip the
range forward. The Anti-Tip device should engage
and prevent the range from tipping over.
If you pull the range out from the wall for any
reason, make sure the device is properly engaged
when you push the range back against the wall.
If it is not, there is a possible risk of the range
tipping over and causing injury if you or a child
stand, sit or lean on an open door.
Please refer to the Anti-Tip device information
in this guide. Failure to take this precaution could
result in tipping of the range and injury.
• Do not leave children alone or unattended
where a range is hot or in operation.
They could be seriously burned.
• For your safety, never use your appliance for
warming or heating the room.

Important Safety Instructions
• 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.
Gas appliances can cause minor exposure to
four of these substances, namely benzene, carbon
monoxide, formaldehyde and soot, caused
primarily by the incomplete combustion of natural
gas or LP fuels. Properly adjusted burners,
indicated by a bluish rather than a yellow flame,
will minimize incomplete combustion. Exposure to
these substances can be minimized by venting with
an open window or using a ventilation fan or hood.
• Fluorescent light bulbs and safety valves on
standing pilot ranges contain mercury. If your
model has these features, they must be recycled
according to local, state and federal codes.
• Be sure all packing materials are removed from
the range before operating it to prevent fire or
smoke damage should the packing material ignite.
• Be sure your range is correctly adjusted by a
qualified service technician or installer for the
type of gas (natural or LP) that is to be used.
Your range can be converted for use with either
type of gas. See the Installation Instructions.
WARNING: These adjustments must be
made by a qualified service technician in
accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions
and all codes and requirements of the authority
having jurisdiction. Failure to follow these
instructions could result in serious injury or
property damage. The qualified agency performing
this work assumes responsibility for the conversion.
• After prolonged use of a range, high floor
temperatures may result and many floor
coverings will not withstand this kind of use.
Never install the range over vinyl tile or linoleum
that cannot withstand such type of use. Never
install it directly over interior kitchen carpeting.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
• 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.
• 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.
• Let the burner grates and other surfaces cool
before touching them or leaving them where
children can reach them.
• Never wear loose fitting or hanging garments
while using the appliance. Be careful when
reaching for items stored in cabinets over the
cooktop. Flammable material could be ignited if
brought in contact with flame or hot oven surfaces
and may cause severe burns.
• 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 multi-purpose dry chemical or foamtype fire extinguisher.
• Do not store flammable materials in an oven, a
range storage drawer or near a cooktop.
• DO NOT STORE OR USE COMBUSTIBLE
MATERIALS, GASOLINE OR OTHER
FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND LIQUIDS IN
THE VICINITY OF THIS OR ANY OTHER
APPLIANCE.
• Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
• 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
• Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
4
• Always use the LITE position (on electric
ignition models) or the HI position (on standing
pilot models) when igniting the top burners and
make sure the burners have ignited.
• Never leave the surface burners unattended at
high flame settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
• Adjust the top burner flame size so it does not
extend beyond the edge of the cookware.
Excessive flame is hazardous.
• Use only dry pot holders—moist or damp pot holders
on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam.
• Do not let pot holders come near open flames
when lifting cookware. Do not use a towel or
other bulky cloth in place of a pot holder.
• To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition
of flammable materials and spillage, turn
cookware handles toward the side or back of the
range without extending over adjacent burners.
• Always turn the surface burners to off before
removing cookware.
• Carefully watch foods being fried at a high
flame setting.
• 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 storage drawer or kick panel.
• Do not use a wok on models with sealed burners
if the wok has a round metal ring that is placed
over the burner grate to support the wok. This
ring acts as a heat trap, which may damage the
burner grate and burner head. Also, it may cause
the burner to work improperly. This may cause a
carbon monoxide level above that allowed by
current standards, resulting in a health hazard.
• 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 the least possible amount of fat for effective
shallow or deep-fat frying. Filling the pan too full
of fat can cause spillovers when food is added.
• Use a deep fat thermometer whenever possible to
prevent overheating fat beyond the smoking point.
• Never try to move a pan of hot fat, especially a
deep fat fryer. Wait until the fat is cool.
• When using glass cookware, make sure it is
designed for top-of-range cooking.
• Do not leave any items on the cooktop.
The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable
items and will increase pressure in closed
containers, which may cause them to burst.
• To avoid the possibility of a burn, always be
certain that the controls for all burners are at
the off position and all grates are cool before
attempting to remove them.
• When flaming foods are under the hood, turn
the fan off. The fan, if operating, may spread
the flames.
• If range is located near a window, do not hang
long curtains that could blow over the top burners
and create a fire hazard.
• When a pilot goes out (on standing pilot models),
you will detect a faint odor of gas as your signal
to relight the pilot. When relighting the pilot,
make sure burner controls are in the off position,
and follow instructions in this book to relight.
• If you smell gas, and you have already made sure
pilots are lit (on standing pilot models), turn off the
gas to the range and call a qualified service technician.
Never use an open flame to locate a leak.
Baking, Broiling and Roasting
• Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in the oven can ignite.
• Place the oven shelves in the desired position
while the oven is cool.
• Stand away from the range when opening the
door of a hot oven. The hot air and steam that
escapes can cause burns to hands, face and eyes.
• Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
• Pulling out the shelf to the shelf-stop is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also a
precaution against burns from touching hot
surfaces of the door or oven walls. The lowest
position “R” is not designed to slide.
• Do not heat unopened food containers. Pressure
could build up and the container could burst,
causing an injury.
• Do not use aluminum foil anywhere in the oven
except as described in this guide. Misuse could
result in a fire hazard or damage to the range.
• Never use aluminum foil to line the oven
bottom. Improper use of foil could start a fire.
• When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
• Use only glass cookware that is recommended
for use in gas ovens.
• Always remove the broiler pan from range as
soon as you finish broiling. Grease left in the
pan can catch fire if oven is used without
removing the grease from the broiler pan.
• When broiling, if meat is too close to the flame,
the fat may ignite. Trim excess fat to prevent
excessive flare-ups.
• Make sure the broiler pan is in place correctly
to reduce the possibility of grease fires.
• If you should have a grease fire in the broiler pan,
turn off oven control, and keep broiler drawer and
oven door closed to contain fire until it burns out.
Self-Cleaning Oven
• Clean only parts listed in this Use and Care Guide.
• Do not clean door gasket. The door gasket is
essential for a good seal. Care should be taken
not to rub, damage or move the gasket.
• 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 shelves,
the broiler pan and 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.

Important Safety Instructions
• If a combination of oils or fats will be used
in frying, stir together before heating or as fats
melt slowly.
• Use proper pan size—avoid pans that are
unstable or easily tipped. Select cookware having
flat bottoms large enough to properly contain
food and avoid boilovers and spillovers and large
enough to cover burner grate. This will both save
cleaning time and prevent hazardous accumulations
of food, since heavy spattering or spillovers left
on range can ignite. Use pans with handles that
can be easily grasped and remain cool.
• Keep all plastics away from the top burners.
• Do not leave plastic
items on the cooktop—
they may melt if left
too close to the vent. Vent appearance and location vary.

SURFACE COOKING
Surface Burner Controls
The knobs that turn the surface burners on and off are
located on the control panel in front of the burners.
The two knobs on the left control the left front and
left rear burners. The two knobs on the right control
the right front and right rear burners.
Before Lighting a Burner
• If drip pans are supplied with your range, they
should be used at all times.
• Make sure all grates on the range are in place
before using any burner.
On ranges with sealed burners:
• The smaller burner (right rear position) will give
the best simmer results. It offers precise cooking
performance for delicate foods, such as sauces
or foods which need to cook over low heat for a
long time. It can be turned down to a very low
simmer setting.
• The right front burner is higher powered than the
others and will bring liquids to a boil quicker.
• On some models, the burners are all the same
size and power.
To Light a Surface Burner
Push the control knob in
and turn it to LITE. You
will hear a little ‘‘clicking’’
noise—the sound of the electric
spark igniting the burner.
Turn the knob to adjust the
flame size. If the knob stays at
LITE, it will continue to click.
When one burner is turned to LITE, all the burners
spark. Do not attempt to disassemble or clean around
any burner while another burner is on. An electric
shock may result, which could cause you to knock
over hot cookware.
In case of power failure, you can light the
surface burners on your range with a match. Hold
a lighted match to the burner, then turn the knob
to the LITE position. Use extreme caution when
lighting burners this way.
Surface burners in use when an electrical power
failure occurs will continue to operate normally.
After Lighting a Burner
• Do not operate a burner for an extended period of
time without cookware on the grate. The finish on the
grate may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.
How to Select Flame Size
Watch the flame, not the knob, as you reduce heat.
The flame size on a gas burner should match the
cookware you are using.
FOR SAFE HANDLING OF COOKWARE NEVER
LET THE FLAME EXTEND UP THE SIDES OF
THE COOKWARE.
Any flame larger than the bottom of the cookware is
wasted and only serves to heat the handle.
8
• Be sure the burners and grates are cool before you
place your hand, a pot holder, cleaning cloths or
other materials on them.
SURFACE COOKING
Top-of-Range Cookware
Glass: There are two types of glass cookware—those
for oven use only and those for top-of-range cooking
(saucepans, coffee and teapots). Glass conducts heat
very slowly.
Heatproof Glass Ceramic: Can be used for either
surface or oven cooking. It conducts heat very slowly
and cools very slowly. Check cookware manufacturer’s
directions to be sure it can be used on gas ranges.
Stainless Steel: This metal alone has poor heating
properties and is usually combined with copper,
aluminum or other metals for improved heat
distribution. Combination metal skillets usually work
satisfactorily if they are used with medium heat as the
manufacturer recommends.
Stove Top Grills (on models with sealed burners)
Wok This Way (on models with sealed burners)
Do not use stove top grills
on your sealed gas burners.
If you use the stove top
grill on the sealed gas
burner, it will cause
incomplete combustion and
can result in exposure to
carbon monoxide levels
above allowable current
standards. This can be
hazardous to your health.
We recommend that you
use a flat-bottomed wok.
They are available at your
local retail store.
Do not use a wok on a
support ring. Placing the
ring over the burner grate
may cause the burner to
work improperly, resulting
in carbon monoxide levels
above allowable current
standards. This could be dangerous to your health.
You could be seriously burned if the wok tipped over.
9
Surface Cooking
Aluminum: Medium-weight cookware is
recommended because it heats quickly and evenly.
Most foods brown evenly in an aluminum skillet.
Use saucepans with tight-fitting lids when cooking
with minimum amounts of water.
Cast-Iron: If heated slowly, most skillets will give
satisfactory results.
Enamelware: Under some conditions, the enamel of
some cookware may melt. Follow cookware
manufacturer’s recommendations for cooking methods.

USING YOUR OVEN
Before Using Your Oven
Be sure you understand how to set the controls
properly. Practice removing and replacing the shelves
while the oven is cool. Read the information and tips
on the following pages. Keep this guide handy where
you can refer to it, especially during the first weeks
of using your new range.
Electric Ignition
Power Outage
CAUTION: Do not make any attempt to operate
the electric ignition oven during an electrical
power failure.
The oven or broiler cannot be lit during a power
failure. Gas will not flow unless the glow bar is hot.
If the oven is in use when a power failure occurs,
the oven burner shuts off and cannot be re-lit until
power is restored. This is because the flow of gas
is automatically stopped and will not resume
when power is restored until the glow bar has
reached operating temperature.
Oven Light
OVEN ON Indicator Light (on some models)
Use the switch on the control panel to turn the light
on or off.
The OVEN ON light will glow any time the Oven
Set knob is not in the OFF position and is set on a
temperature or a function.
Oven Moisture
As your oven heats up, the temperature change of the air in the oven may
cause water droplets to form on the door glass. These droplets are harmless
and will evaporate as the oven continues to heat up.
Oven Vents
The oven is vented through duct openings at the rear
of the cooktop. See the Features section. Do not
block these openings when cooking in the oven—it is
important that the flow of hot air from the oven and
fresh air to the oven burners be uninterrupted.
• The vent openings and
nearby surfaces may
become hot. Do not
touch them.
• Do not leave plastic
Vent appearance and location vary.
items on the cooktop—
they may melt if left too
close to the vent.
12
• Handles of pots and pans on the cooktop may
become hot if left too close to the vent.
• Metal items will become very hot if they are left
on the cooktop and could cause burns.
• Do not leave any items on the cooktop. The hot
air from the vent may ignite flammable items and
will increase pressure in closed containers, which
may cause them to burst.
Oven Shelves
The shelves are designed with stop-locks so when
placed correctly on the shelf supports, they will
stop before coming completely out of the oven and
will not tilt when you are removing food from
them or placing food on them.
When placing cookware on a shelf, pull the shelf out
to the bump on the shelf support. Place the cookware
on the shelf, then slide the shelf back into the oven.
This will eliminate reaching into the hot oven.
To remove a shelf from the oven, pull it toward you,
tilt the front end upward and pull the shelf out.
To replace, place the shelf on the shelf support with
the stop-locks (curved extension of the shelf) facing
up and toward the rear of the oven. Tilt up the front
and push the shelf toward the back of the oven until it
goes past the bump on the shelf support. Then lower
the front of the shelf and push it all the way back.

Using Your Oven
Shelf Positions
The oven has five shelf supports for baking,
roasting and broiling identified in this illustration
as A (bottom), B, C, D and E (top). It also has a
special low shelf position (R) for roasting extra
large items, such as a large turkey—the shelf is not
designed to slide out at this position. Shelf positions
for cooking are suggested in the Baking, Roasting
and Broiling sections.

Automatic Oven Shut Off
As a safety feature, this oven will automatically shut
itself off after 12 hours. On models with touch pad
clock controls this feature may be deactivated to
allow the oven to be left on for more than 12 hours.
To deactivate the Automatic Oven Shut-Off, press
and hold both the increase and decrease MIN. pads
for about 4 seconds. The display will change from
time of day to show “off”.
To reactivate the feature, press and hold both the
increase and the decrease MIN. pads for about
4 seconds. The display will change from time of
day to show “on”.

BAKING
Do not lock the oven door with the latch during
baking. The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
Your oven temperature is controlled using the
latest technology in oven control systems. It is
recommended that you operate your new oven
for a number of weeks to become familiar with
its performance.
If you think an adjustment is necessary, see the
Adjust the Oven Thermostat section. It gives easy
Do It Yourself instructions on how to adjust the
thermostat.
How to Set Your Range for Baking
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the
correct position before you turn the oven on.
1. Turn the Oven Set knob to the temperature
you desire.
2. Check the food for doneness at the minimum
time on the recipe. Cook longer if necessary.
3. Turn the Oven Set knob to OFF and then
remove the foods.
Oven Shelves
Arrange the oven
shelf or shelves in
the desired
locations while
the oven is cool.
The correct shelf
position depends
on the kind of
food and the
browning desired.
As a general rule,
place most foods in the middle of the oven,
on either shelf position B or C. See the chart
for suggested shelf positions.

Preheating
Preheating is necessary for good results when
baking cakes, cookies, pastry and breads. For most
casseroles and roasts, preheating is not necessary.
For ovens without a preheat indicator light or tone,
preheat 10 minutes. After the oven is preheated place
the food in the oven as quickly as possible to prevent
heat from escaping.
Pan Placement
For even cooking and proper browning, there must be
enough room for air circulation in the oven. Baking
results will be better if baking pans are centered as
much as possible rather than being placed to the front
or to the back of the oven.
Pans should not touch each other or the walls of the
oven. Allow 1– to 11⁄2–inch space between pans as
well as from the back of the oven, the door and the
sides. If you need to use two shelves, stagger the pans
so one is not directly above the other.
Using Your Oven
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it. Preheat
means bringing the oven up to the specified
temperature before putting the food in the oven.
To preheat, set the oven at the correct temperature—
selecting a higher temperature does not shorten
preheat time.
Baking Guides
When using prepared baking mixes, follow package recipe or instructions
for best baking results.
Aluminum Foil
When baking
cookies, flat cookie
sheets (without
sides) produce
better-looking
cookies. Cookies
baked in a jelly roll
pan (short sides all
around) may have
darker edges and
pale or light browning may occur.
Cookies can be baked on several shelves at the same
time but browning may be uneven because of reduced
air circulation.
Do not use a cookie sheet so large that it touches
the walls or the door of the oven.
Never entirely
cover a shelf 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 shelf several inches below the food.
Do not put aluminum foil on the oven bottom.
(continued next page)
15
Baking
Cookies
BAKING
Pies
Cakes
For best results,
bake pies in dark,
rough or dull
pans to produce a
browner, crisper
crust. Stagger the
pies for most
even browning.
Frozen pies in
foil pans should
be placed on an
aluminum cookie sheet for baking since the shiny foil
pan reflects heat away from the pie crust; the cookie
sheet helps retain it.
For best browning
when baking
several 8″ or 9″
cakes, stagger
them so one pan
is not directly
above another.
Warped or bent
pans will cause
uneven baking
results and poorly
shaped products. A cake baked in a pan larger than
the recipe recommends will usually be crisper,
thinner and drier than it should be. If baked in a pan
smaller than recommended, it may be undercooked
and batter may overflow.
Baking Pans
Use the proper baking pan. The type of finish on the pan determines the
amount of browning that will occur.
• Dark, rough or dull pans absorb heat resulting in a browner, crisper crust.
Use this type for pies.
• Shiny, bright and smooth pans reflect heat, resulting in a lighter, more
delicate browning. Cakes and cookies require this type of pan.
• Glass baking dishes also absorb heat. When baking in glass baking
dishes, the temperature may need to be reduced by 25°F.
• If you are using dark non-stick pans, you may find that you need to
reduce the oven temperature 25°F. to prevent over-browning.
Don’t Peek
Set the timer for the estimated cooking time and do
not open the door to look at your food. Most recipes
provide minimum and maximum baking times such
as “bake 30-40 minutes.”
16
DO NOT open the door to check until the minimum
time. Opening the oven door frequently during
cooking allows heat to escape and makes baking times
longer. Your baking results may also be affected.
TIMED BAKING
(on some models)
How to Time Bake
NOTE: Before beginning, make sure the oven clock
shows the correct time of day.
To set the clock, first press the CLOCK pad.
Then press the HOUR and MIN. pads until
the correct time of day is displayed.
Baking
Do not lock the oven door with the latch during
timed baking. The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
The oven control allows you to turn the oven on or
off automatically at specific times that you set.
Examples of Immediate Start (oven turns on now and
you set it to turn off automatically) and Delay Start
and Stop (setting the oven to turn on automatically at a
later time, cook for a preset amount of time and then
turn off automatically) will be described.
How to Set Immediate Start and Automatic Stop
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the
correct position before you turn the oven on.
The oven will turn on immediately and cook for a
selected length of time. At the end of Cook Time the
oven will turn off automatically.
1. Press the COOK TIME ON/OFF pad.
2. Press the HOUR and MIN. pads
until the desired length of baking
time appears in the display.
3. Turn the Oven Set knob to the desired temperature.
4. The oven will turn on. The display will show the
Cook Time remaining. When the oven reaches the
set temperature, a tone sounds. The oven will
continue to cook for the programmed amount of
time, then shut off automatically.
5. When the oven automatically turns off the
AUTOMATIC OVEN light will flash and the oven
will signal. Turn the oven control to OFF to stop
the flashes and signal.
6. Remove the food from the oven. Remember, foods
that are left in the oven continue cooking after the
controls are off.
NOTE: Foods that spoil easily, such as milk, eggs,
fish, stuffings, poultry and pork, should not be
allowed to sit for more than 1 hour before or after
cooking. Room temperature promotes the growth of
harmful bacteria. Be sure that the oven light is off
because heat from the bulb will speed harmful
bacteria growth.

TIMED BAKING
How to Set Delay Start and Automatic Stop
Quick Reminder:
1. Press the COOK TIME ON/OFF pad.
2. Press the HOUR and MIN. pads to set the
desired length of cooking time.
3. Press the START TIME ON/OFF pad.
4. Press the HOUR and MIN. pads to set
the time of day you want cooking to start.
5. Turn the Oven Set knob to the desired
temperature.
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the
correct position before you program the oven.
You can set the oven control to delay-start the oven,
cook for a specific length of time and then turn off
automatically.
For example: Let’s say it’s 2:00 and dinner time
is shortly after 7:00. The recipe suggests 3 hours
cooking time at 325°F.
1. Press the COOK TIME ON/OFF pad.
2. For 3 hours of cooking time, press
the HOUR pad until “3:00” appears
in the display.
4. Press the HOUR pad until “4:00” appears in the
display. The timer is now set to start baking in
2 hours, at 4:00.
5. Turn the Oven Set knob to the desired temperature
(in this example 325°F.).
The oven is now set to start at 4:00 and cook
for 3 hours at a temperature of 325°F. At the
end of the 3 hour cooking time (7:00), the oven
will automatically turn off. When the oven
automatically turns off the AUTOMATIC OVEN
light will flash and the oven will signal. Turn the
Oven Set knob to OFF to stop the flashes
and signal.
6. Remove the food from the oven. Remember,
even though the oven shuts off automatically,
foods continue cooking after controls are off.
NOTE:
• The low temperature zone of this range (between
WARM and 200°F.) is available to keep hot cooked
foods warm. Food kept in the oven longer than
two hours at these low temperatures may spoil.
• Foods that spoil easily, such as milk, eggs, fish,
stuffings, poultry and pork, should not be allowed
to sit for more than one hour before or after cooking.
Room temperature promotes the growth of harmful
bacteria. Be sure that the oven light is off because
heat from the bulb will speed harmful bacteria growth.
3. Press the START TIME ON/OFF pad.

NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling
or the self-cleaning temperatures. The adjustment will
be retained in memory after a power failure.
Timed Baking
You may find that your new oven cooks differently
than the one it replaced. We recommend that you
use your new oven for a few weeks to become more
familiar with it, following the times given in your
recipes as a guide.
If you think your new oven is too hot or too cold,
you can adjust the thermostat yourself. If you think
it is too hot, adjust the thermostat to make it cooler.
If you think it is too cool, adjust the thermostat to
make it hotter.
We do not recommend the use of thermometers,
such as those found in grocery stores, to check the
temperature setting of your new oven. These
thermometers may vary 20–40 degrees.
To Adjust the Temperature on Models with Only an Oven Set Knob
Adjust the Oven Thermostat
1. Put the knob in the OFF position.
2. Pull the knob off by pulling straight out.
3. Press and hold the HOTTER or COOLER button
for 5 seconds to make the oven 20°F. hotter or
20°F. cooler.
When you are adjusting the thermostat, the
following lights will flash indicating where the
thermostat will be set when you release the
adjustment button:
OVEN ON indicates the thermostat will be set
at the factory setting.
PREHEATED indicates the thermostat will
be set 20°F. hotter.
CLEAN indicates the thermostat will be
set 20°F. cooler.
4. After you have made the adjustment,
replace the knob.
(appearance may vary)

ROASTING
Do not lock the oven door with the latch during
roasting. The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
Roasting is cooking by dry heat. Tender meat or
poultry can be roasted uncovered in your oven.
Roasting temperatures, which should be low and
steady, keep spattering to a minimum.
The oven has a special
low shelf (R) position
just above the oven
bottom. Use it when
extra cooking space is
needed, for example,
when roasting a large
turkey. The shelf is not
designed to slide out at
this position.
1. Position the oven
at shelf (B) position
for small size roast
(3 to 5 lbs.) and at
(R) position for
larger roasts.

A
Roasting is really a baking procedure used for meats.
Therefore the oven controls are set for Baking or
Timed Baking. (You may hear a slight clicking sound
indicating the oven is working properly.) Timed
Baking will turn the oven on and off automatically.
Most meats continue to cook slightly while standing
after being removed from the oven. Recommended
standing time for roasts is 10 to 20 minutes. This
allows roasts to firm up and makes them easier to
carve. The internal temperature will rise about 5° to
10°F. If you wish to compensate for the temperature
rise, remove the roast from the oven when its internal
temperature is 5° to 10°F. less than the temperature
shown in the Roasting Guide.
Remember that food will continue to cook in the hot
oven and therefore should be removed when the
desired internal temperature has been reached.
3. Turn the Oven Set knob to the desired temperature.
See the Roasting Guide for temperatures and
approximate cooking times.
4. When roasting is finished, turn the Oven Set knob
to OFF and then remove the food from the oven.
R
2. Check the weight of the roast. Place the meat
fat-side-up or the poultry breast-side-up on the
roasting grid in a shallow pan. The melting fat will
baste the meat. Select a pan as close to the size of
meat as possible. (The broiler pan with grid is a
good pan for this.)
Dual Shelf Cooking
Use of Aluminum Foil
This allows more than one food to be cooked at the
same time. For example: While roasting a 20-lb.
(10 kg) turkey on shelf position R, a second shelf
(if so equipped) may be added on position D so that
an additional food such as scalloped potatoes can be
cooked at the same time. Foods cooked with the
turkey should be added toward the end of the time
allowed for the turkey. For example, potatoes which
cook for 1 hour should be added to the oven 1 hour
before the end of cooking time for the turkey.
You can use aluminum foil to line the broiler pan.
This makes clean-up easier when using the pan for
marinating, cooking with fruits, cooking heavily
cured meats or basting food during cooking. Press
the foil tightly around the inside of the pan.

Questions and Answers
Q. Do I need to preheat my oven each time I cook
a roast or poultry?
A. It is not necessary to preheat your oven.
Q. When buying a roast, are there any special tips
that would help me cook it more evenly?
A. Yes. Buy a roast as even in thickness as possible,
or buy rolled roasts.
Q. Can I seal the sides of my foil “tent” when
roasting a turkey?
A. Sealing the foil will steam the meat. Leaving
it unsealed allows the air to circulate and brown
the meat.
Roasting
Q. Is it necessary to check for doneness with a
meat thermometer?
A. Checking the finished internal temperature at the
completion of cooking time is recommended.
Temperatures are shown in Roasting Guide. For
roasts over 8 lbs., check with thermometer at halfhour intervals after half the time has passed.
Q. Why is my roast crumbling when I try to
carve it?
A. Roasts are easier to slice if allowed to cool 10 to
20 minutes after removing from oven. Be sure to
cut across the grain of the meat.
ROASTING GUIDE
Frozen Roasts
Frozen roasts of beef, pork, lamb, etc., can be started
without thawing, but allow 15 to 25 minutes per
pound additional time (15 minutes per pound for
roasts under 5 pounds, more time for larger roasts).
Type

Roasting Guide
Doneness
BROILING
Do not lock the oven door with the latch during
broiling. The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
Broiling is cooking food by direct heat from above
the food. Most fish and tender cuts of meat can be
broiled. Follow these directions to keep spattering
and smoking to a minimum.
The oven door must be closed during broiling.
Turn the food only once
during cooking. Time the
foods for the first side
according to the Broiling
Guide.
Turn the food, then use
the times given for the
second side as a guide to
the preferred doneness.
1. If the meat has fat or gristle around the edge, cut
vertical slashes through both about 2″ apart. If
desired, the fat may be trimmed, leaving a layer
about 1/8″ thick.
2. Place the meat on the broiler grid in the broiler pan
which comes with the range. Always use the grid
so fat drips into the broiler pan; otherwise the
juices may become hot enough to catch fire.
3. Position the shelf on the recommended shelf
position as suggested in Broiling Guide.
4. Close the oven door but do not latch it. If the door
latch is moved to the right during a broil
operation the door may lock and you may not be
able to open it until the oven cools.
5. Turn the Oven Set knob to BROIL.
6. When broiling is finished, turn Oven Set knob to
OFF. Remove the broiler pan from the range and
serve food immediately. Leave the pan outside the
range to cool.
Use of Aluminum Foil
You can use aluminum foil to line your broiler pan and
broiler grid. However, you must mold the foil tightly
to the grid and cut slits in it just like the grid.
Without the slits, the foil will prevent fat and meat
juices from draining to the broiler pan. The juices
could become hot enough to catch on fire. If you do
not cut the slits, you are frying, not broiling.
Questions and Answers
Q. When broiling, is it necessary to always use a
grid in the pan?
A. Yes. Using the grid suspends the meat over the
pan. As the meat cooks, the juices fall into the
pan, thus keeping meat drier. Juices are protected
by the grid and stay cooler, thus preventing
excessive spatter and smoking.
Q. Should I salt the meat before broiling?
A. No. Salt draws out the juices and allows them to
evaporate. Always salt after cooking. Turn the
meat with tongs; piercing the meat with a fork
also allows juices to escape. When broiling
poultry or fish, brush each side often with butter.
22
Q. Why are my meats not turning out as brown as
they should?
A. Check to see if you are using the recommended
shelf position. Broil for the longest period of time
indicated in the Broiling Guide. Turn the food
only once during broiling.

spattering by trapping juices in the shielded lower
part of the pan.
• For steaks and chops, slash the fat evenly around the
outside edges of the meat. To slash, cut crosswise
through the outer fat surface just to the edge of the
meat. Use tongs to turn the meat over to prevent
piercing the meat and losing the juices.
OPERATING THE SELF-CLEANING OVEN
Normal Cleaning Time: 4 hours and 20 minutes
Before a Clean Cycle
We recommend venting with an open window
or using a ventilation fan or hood during the first
self-clean cycle.
1. Remove the broiler pan, broiler grid, all cookware
and any aluminum foil from the oven—they cannot
withstand the high cleaning temperatures.
NOTE: Take the shelves out of the oven before
you begin the self-clean cycle.
2. Wipe up heavy soil on the oven bottom. If you
use soap, rinse thoroughly before self-cleaning
to prevent staining.

3. Clean spatters or spills on the oven front frame,
and the oven door outside the gasket with a
dampened cloth. The oven front frame and the
oven door outside the gasket do not get cleaned by
the self-clean cycle. On these areas use detergent
and hot water or a soap-filled steel wool pad. Rinse
well with a vinegar and water solution. This will
help prevent a brown residue from forming when
the oven is heated. Buff these areas with a dry
cloth. Do not clean the gasket.
Clean the top, sides and outside front of the oven
door with soap and water. Do not use abrasives or
oven cleaners.
Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in place.
Do not rub or clean the door gasket—
the fiberglass material of the gasket has an
extremely low resistance to abrasion. An intact
and well-fitting oven door gasket is essential for
energy-efficient oven operation and good baking
results. 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.
4. Close the door and make sure the oven light is
off. If the oven light is not turned off, the life
of the bulb will be shortened or it may burn out
immediately.
CAUTION: The grates and drip pans
(on some models) should never be cleaned
in the self-cleaning oven.
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.
How to Set the Oven for Cleaning
Quick Reminder:
1. Latch the door.
2. Turn the Oven Set knob to CLEAN.
To Stop A Clean Cycle
1. Turn the Oven Set knob to OFF.
2. Wait until the oven has cooled below the locking temperature to unlatch
the door. You will not be able to open the door right away unless the
oven has cooled below the locking temperature.
After a Clean Cycle
You may notice some white ash in the oven.
Just wipe it up with a damp cloth after the oven
cools.
If white spots remain, remove them with a soapfilled steel wool pad. Be sure to rinse thoroughly
with a vinegar and water mixture. These deposits
are usually a salt residue that cannot be removed by
the clean cycle.
If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle,
repeat the cycle.
NOTE:
• You cannot set the oven for cooking until the oven
is cool enough for the door to be unlatched.
• While the oven is self-cleaning, you can press the
CLOCK pad to display the time of day. To return
to the clean countdown, press the COOK TIME
ON/OFF pad.

Questions and Answers
Q. If my oven clock is not set to the correct time
of day, can I still self-clean my oven?
A. If the clock is not set to the correct time of day,
you will not be able to set a delay clean to end
at a specific time.
Q. Can I use commercial oven cleaners on any
part of my self-cleaning oven?
A. No cleaners or coatings should be used around
any part of this oven. If you do use them and do
not thoroughly rinse the oven with water, wiping it
absolutely clean afterwards, the residue can scar
the oven surface and damage metal parts the next
time the oven is automatically cleaned.
Q. Can I clean the woven gasket around the oven door?
A. No, this gasket is essential for a good oven seal,
and care must be taken not to rub, damage or
move this gasket.
Q. The CLEAN light flashes when I set the clean
cycle. What’s wrong?
A. The CLEAN light will flash until the latch is
moved to the right.
Q. Is the “crackling” or “popping” sound I hear
during cleaning normal?
A. Yes. This is the sound of the metal heating and
cooling during both the cooking and cleaning
functions.
26
Q. What should I do if excessive smoking occurs
during cleaning?
A. This is caused by excessive soil. Turn the Oven
Set knob to OFF. Open the windows to rid the
room of smoke. Wait until the CLEAN light goes
off. Wipe up the excess soil and reset the clean
cycle.
Q. Should there be any odor during the cleaning?
A. Yes, there will be an odor during the first few
cleanings. Failure to wipe out excessive soil might
also cause a strong odor when cleaning.
Q. What causes the hair-like lines on the enameled
surface of my oven?
A. This is a normal condition, resulting from heating
and cooling during cleaning. These lines do not
affect how your oven performs.
Q. Why do I have ash left in my oven after
cleaning?
A. Some types of soil will leave a deposit which
is ash. It can be removed with a damp sponge
or cloth.
Q. Can I cook food on the cooktop while the oven
is self-cleaning?
A. Yes. While the oven is self-cleaning, you can use
the cooktop just as you normally do.
CARE AND CLEANING
BE SURE ELECTRICAL POWER IS
DISCONNECTED BEFORE CLEANING ANY
PART OF YOUR RANGE.
CAUTION: DO NOT OPERATE THE BURNER WITHOUT ALL BURNER PARTS AND DRIP PANS
(IF SO EQUIPPED) IN PLACE.
Standard Twin Burners
(on some models)
Grate
Drip pan
(on some models)
Surface burner
On models with standard twin burners, the
cooktop lifts up for easy access.
Turn all controls OFF before removing burner
parts and drip pans (if so equipped).
The burner grates and drip pans (if so equipped)
can be lifted off, making them easy to clean.
The holes in the surface
burners of your range
must be kept clean at all
times for proper ignition
and an even,
unhampered flame.
You should clean the surface burners routinely,
especially after bad spillovers, which could clog
these holes. Wipe off surface burners. If heavy
spillover occurs, remove the surface burners from
the range. Burners lift out for cleaning. Lift up the
cooktop and then lift out the surface burners.
To remove burned-on food, soak the surface burner
in a solution of mild liquid detergent and hot water.
Soak the surface burner for 20 to 30 minutes. For
more stubborn stains, use a cleanser like Soft Scrub®
brand or Bon Ami® brand. Rinse well to remove any
traces of the cleanser that might clog the surface
burner openings. Do not use steel wool because it
will clog the surface burner openings and scratch the
surface burners. If the holes become clogged, clean
them with a sewing needle or twist-tie.
Before putting the surface burner back, shake out
excess water and then dry it thoroughly by setting it
in a warm oven for 30 minutes. Then place it back in
the range, making sure it is properly seated and level.
Check the flame pattern of each burner. If the flames
are “jumpy” (not steady), clean the holes again with a
sewing needle or twist-tie.
Care and Cleaning
Clean
these holes

Drip Pans
(on some models)
Remove the grates and lift
out the drip pans. Drip
pans can be cleaned in a
dishwasher or by hand.
When replacing the drip pans,
make sure they are in the correct position.
Operating the Self-Cleaning Oven
Proper care and cleaning are important so your range
will give you efficient and satisfactory service.
Follow these directions carefully in caring for it to
help assure safe and proper maintenance.
To get rid of burned-on food, place them in a
covered container (or plastic bag) with 1/4 cup
ammonia to loosen the soil. Then scrub with a
soap-filled scouring pad if necessary.
CAUTION: Do not clean the drip
pans in a self-cleaning oven.

you to knock over hot cookware.
Burner Heads (on sealed burners only)
NOTE: Before removing the burner heads and
caps, remember their size and location. Replace
them in the same location after cleaning.
For proper ignition,
make sure the small
hole in the section that
fits over the electrode is
kept open. A sewing

You should clean the surface burners routinely,
especially after bad spillovers, which could clog
these openings.
To remove burned-on food, soak the burner heads
in a solution of mild liquid detergent and hot water
for 20-30 minutes. For more stubborn stains, use a
toothbrush.
Before putting the

Burner Grates
Lift out when cool.
Grates should be washed
regularly and, of course,
after spillovers. Wash
them in hot, soapy water and rinse with clean water.
After cleaning, dry them thoroughly by putting them
in a warm oven for a few minutes. Don’t put the
grates back on the range while they are wet. When
replacing the grates, be sure they’re positioned
securely over the burners.
To prevent rusting on cast iron grates, apply a light
coating of cooking oil on the bottom of the grates.
To get rid of burned-on food, place the grates
in a covered container (or plastic bag) with 1/4 cup
ammonia to loosen the soil. Let sit overnight
(or approximately 12 hours), then scrub with a
soap-filled scouring pad if necessary. Rinse grates
thoroughly and dry completely before replacing
them on the range top.
Although they’re durable, the grates will gradually
lose their shine, regardless of the best care you can
give them. This is due to their continual exposure to
high temperatures. You will notice this sooner with
lighter color grates.
Do not operate a burner for an extended period of
time without cookware on the grate. The finish on the
grate may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.
CAUTION: Do not clean the grates in a
dishwasher or in a self-cleaning oven.
Care and Cleaning
Cooktop Surface
To avoid damaging the porcelain enamel surface
of the cooktop and to prevent it from becoming
dull, clean up spills right away. Foods with a lot of
acid (tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices, etc.) or foods
with high sugar content could cause a dull spot if
allowed to set.
When the surface has cooled, wash and rinse. For
other spills such as fat spatterings, etc., wash with
soap and water once the surface has cooled. Then
rinse and polish with a dry cloth.
Do not store flammable materials in an oven or
near the cooktop. Do not store or use combustible
materials, gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
Oven Bottom
The oven bottom has a porcelain enamel finish.
To make cleaning easier, protect the oven bottom
from excessive spillovers by placing a cookie sheet
on the shelf below the shelf you are cooking on.
This is particularly important when baking a fruit
pie or other foods with a high acid content. Hot fruit
fillings or other foods that are highly acidic (such
as tomatoes, sauerkraut, and sauces with vinegar or
lemon juice) may cause pitting and damage to the
porcelain enamel surface and should be wiped up
immediately.
We don’t recommend using aluminum foil on the
oven bottom. It can affect air flow if the holes are
blocked and it can concentrate heat at the bottom
of the oven, resulting in poor baking performance.
To clean up spillovers, use soap and water, an
abrasive cleaner or soap-filled steel wool pad.
Rinse well to remove any soap before self-cleaning.
(continued next page)
29
CARE AND CLEANING
Lift-Off Oven Door
The oven door is removable,
but it is heavy. You may need help
removing and replacing the door.
To remove the door, open it a few
inches to the special stop position
that will hold the door open. Grasp
firmly on each side and lift the door
straight up and off the hinges.
NOTE: Be careful not to place
hands between the hinge and the
oven door frame as the hinge could
snap back and pinch fingers.
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. Then lower the
door slowly and evenly over both hinges at the same
time. If the hinges snap back against the oven frame,
pull them back out.
TO CLEAN THE DOOR:
(Do not immerse the door in water.)
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. Any soap left on the liner causes additional
stains when the oven is heated.
• The area outside the gasket can be cleaned with
a soap-filled steel wool or plastic pad.
• Do not rub or clean the door gasket—the
fiberglass material of the gasket has an extremely
low resistance to abrasion. An intact and wellfitting oven door gasket is essential for energyefficient oven operation and good baking results.
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.
Inside gasket
Gasket
Outside gasket
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.
• Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato sauces
and basting materials containing acids may cause
discoloration and should be wiped up immediately.
When the surface is cool, clean and rinse.
• Do not use oven cleaners, cleansing powders or
harsh abrasives such as steel wool pads on the
outside of the door.
Broiler Pan and Grid
After broiling, remove
the broiler pan from the
oven. Remove the grid
from the pan. Carefully pour
out grease from the pan into a
proper container. Wash and
rinse the broiler pan and grid
in hot water with a soap-filled
or plastic scouring pad.
Grid
Pan
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.
The broiler pan and grid may be cleaned with a
commercial oven cleaner.
Both the broiler pan and grid can also be cleaned in a
dishwasher.
Do not store a soiled broiler pan and grid anywhere
in the range.
CAUTION: Do not clean the broiler pan or grid in
a self-cleaning oven.
Oven Shelves
Clean the shelves with an abrasive cleanser or steel wool. After cleaning,
rinse the shelves with clean water and dry with a clean cloth.
NOTE: Take the shelves out of the oven before you begin the self-clean cycle.
30
Oven Light Replacement (on some models)
CAUTION: Before replacing your oven light bulb,
disconnect the electrical power to the range at the
main fuse or circuit breaker panel. Be sure to let
the light cover and bulb cool completely.
The oven light bulb is covered with a removable
glass cover that is held in place with a bail-shaped
wire. Remove the oven door, if desired, to reach
cover easily.
To remove:
1. Hold a hand under the
cover so it doesn’t fall
when released. With
fingers of the same
hand, firmly push back
the wire cover holder.
Lift off the cover.
Wire cover holder
DO NOT REMOVE ANY SCREWS TO
REMOVE COVER.
2. Do not touch hot bulb with a wet cloth. Replace
bulb with a 40-watt household appliance bulb.
To replace cover:
1. Place it into the groove of the light receptacle.
Pull the wire forward to the center of the cover
until it snaps into place. When in place, the wire
holds the cover firmly. Be certain the wire is in
the depression in the center of the cover.
2. Connect electrical power to the range.
It’s a good idea to wipe the control panel after each
use of the oven. Clean with mild soap and water or
vinegar and water, rinse with clean water and 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. A 50/50 solution
of vinegar and hot water works well.
The control knobs may be
removed for easier cleaning.
To remove a knob, pull it
straight off the stem. If 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.
Metal parts can be cleaned with soap and water.
Do not use steel wool, abrasives, ammonia, acids or
commercial oven cleaners. Dry with a soft cloth.
Removable Storage Drawer (on some models)
The storage drawer is a good place to store cookware
and bakeware. Do not store plastics and flammable
material in the drawer.
The storage drawer may be removed for cleaning
under the range. Clean the storage drawer with a
damp cloth or sponge. Never use harsh abrasives
or scouring pads.
To remove storage drawer:
1. Pull drawer straight
out until it stops.
2. Tilt the front of the
drawer up and free
of the range.
To replace storage drawer:
1. Set the stops on the back of the drawer over the

Care and Cleaning
Control Panel and Knobs
CARE AND CLEANING
Oven Air Vents
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 kick panel or
storage drawer (depending on the model).
Vent appearance and location vary.
Lift-Up Cooktop (on models with standard twin burners)
Clean the area under the cooktop often. Built-up soil,
especially grease, may catch on fire.
To make cleaning easier, the cooktop may be lifted up.
To raise the cooktop:
1. Be sure the burners are turned off.
2. Remove the grates.
3. Grasp the two front burner wells and lift up.
Some models have dual
support rods that will hold
the cooktop up while you
clean underneath it.
Clean under the cooktop
with hot, soapy water and
a clean cloth. If you
removed your surface burners while cleaning, make
sure they are properly seated when replacing them.
After cleaning, lower the cooktop (be careful not to
pinch your fingers).
Removable Kick Panel (on some models)
The kick panel may be removed for cleaning under
the range.
To remove, lift up the bottom
of the panel slightly to
disengage the panel from the

stored in the oven can ignite.
• Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
GENERAL
MODEL AND SERIAL NUMBER LOCATION
• See Dimensions and Clearances in this section
for all rough-in and spacing dimensions. These
dimensions must be met for safe use of your range.
The location of the electrical outlet and pipe opening
(see Gas Pipe and Electric Outlet Locations) may
be adjusted to meet specific requirements.
• The range may be placed with 0″ clearance
(flush) at the back wall and side walls of the range.
Depending on your range, you’ll find the model
and serial numbers on a label on the front frame
of the range, behind the storage drawer or
kick panel.
LOCATION
Do not locate the range where it may be subject
to strong drafts. Any openings in the floor or wall
behind the range should be sealed. Make sure
the openings around the base of the range that
supply fresh air for combustion and ventilation
are not obstructed by carpeting or woodwork.
PROTECT YOUR FLOOR
Your range, like many other household items, is
heavy and can settle into soft floor coverings
such as cushioned vinyl or carpeting. Use care
when moving the range on this type of flooring.
It is recommended that the following simple and
inexpensive instructions be followed to protect
your floor.
The range should be installed on a sheet of
plywood (or similar material). When the floor
covering ends at the front of the range, the area
that the range will rest on should be built up
with plywood to the same level or higher than
the floor covering. This will allow the range to be
moved for cleaning or servicing. Also, make sure
your floor covering will withstand 180°F. (See
the Important Safety Instructions section of the
Installation Instructions.)
KITCHEN CABINETS
Make sure the wall coverings around your range
can withstand the heat generated (up to 200°F.)
by the range. (See the Important Safety
Instructions Section of the Installation
Instructions.)
TOOLS YOU WILL NEED
• Phillips and flat-blade screwdrivers
• Pencil and ruler
• Two pipe wrenches (one for backup)
• 13⁄8″ open-end or adjustable wrench
• Nut drivers or wrenches: 3/16″ and 1/4″
ADDITIONAL MATERIALS YOU MAY NEED
• Gas line shut-off valve
• Pipe joint sealant or UL-approved pipe thread
tape with Teflon* that resists action of natural
and LP gases
• Flexible metal appliance connector (1/2″ I.D.)
A 5-foot length is recommended for ease of
installation but other lengths are acceptable.
Never use an old connector when installing a
new range.
• Flare union adapter for connection to gas
supply line (3/4″ or 1/2″ NPT x 1/2″ I.D.)
• Flare union adapter for connection to pressure
regulator on range (1/2″ NPT x 1/2″ I.D.)
*Teflon: Registered trademark of DuPont
PREPARATION
• Remove all tape and packaging. Lift up the
cooktop (on models with standard twin burners)
and remove any packing material under it. Make
sure the standard twin burners are properly
seated and level.
• Take the accessory pack out of the oven.
• Check to be sure that no range parts have
come loose during shipping.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1 PROVIDE ADEQUATE GAS SUPPLY
Your range is designed to operate at a pressure of
4″ of water column on natural gas or, if designed
for LP gas (propane or butane), 10″ of water
column. Make sure you are supplying your range
with the type of gas for which it is designed. This
range is convertible for use on natural or propane
gas. If you decide to use this range on LP gas,
conversion must be made by a qualified LP
installer before attempting to operate the range
on that gas.
For proper operation, the pressure of natural gas
supplied to the regulator must be between 4″ and
13″ of water column. For LP gas, the pressure
supplied must be between 10″ and 13″ of water
column. When checking for proper operation of
the regulator, the inlet pressure must be at least
1″ greater than the operating (manifold) pressure
as given above. The pressure regulator located
at the inlet of the range manifold must remain in
the supply line regardless of whether natural or
LP gas is being used. A flexible metal appliance
connector used to connect the range to the gas
supply line should have an I.D. of 1/2″ and be
5 feet in length for ease of installation. In Canada,
flexible connectors must be single wall metal
connectors no longer than 6 feet in length.

2 CONNECT THE RANGE TO GAS
Shut off the main gas supply valve before
disconnecting the old range and leave it off until
new hook-up has been completed. Don’t forget
to relight the pilot on other gas appliances when
you turn the gas back on.
Because hard piping restricts movement of the
range, the use of an A.G.A.-certified flexible
metal appliance connector is recommended
unless local codes require a hard-piped connection.
Never use an old connector when installing a
new range. If the hard piping method is used,
you must carefully align the pipe; the range
cannot be moved after the connection is made.
To prevent gas leaks, use pipe joint compound
or wrap Teflon* pipe thread tape around all
male (external) pipe threads.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
2 CONNECT THE RANGE TO GAS (continued)
1. Install a manual gas line shut-off valve in the
gas line in an easily accessed location outside of
the range. Make sure everyone operating the
range knows where and how to shut off the gas
supply to the range.
2. Install male 1/2″ flare union adapter to
the 1/2″ NPT internal thread elbow at inlet of
regulator. On models equipped with
standard twin burners, install the male pipe
thread end of the 1/2″ flare union adapter to
the 1/2″ NPT internal thread at inlet of pressure
regulator. Use a backup wrench on the
regulator fitting to avoid damage.
When installing the range from the front,
remove the 90° elbow for easier installation.
3. Install male 1/2″ or 3/4″ flare union adapter
to the NPT internal thread of the manual shutoff valve, taking care to back-up the shut-off
valve to keep it from turning.
4. Connect flexible metal appliance connector
to the adapter on the range. Position range
to permit connection at the shut-off valve.
5. When all connections have been made, make
sure all range controls are in the off position
and turn on the main gas supply valve. Use a
liquid leak detector at all joints and connections
to check for leaks in the system.
CAUTION: DO NOT USE
A FLAME TO CHECK FOR
GAS LEAKS.
When using test pressures greater than 1/2 psig
to pressure test the gas supply system of the
residence, disconnect the range and individual
shut-off valve from the gas supply piping. When
using test pressures of 1/2 psig or less to test
the gas supply system, simply isolate the range
from the gas supply system by closing the
individual shut-off valve.

3 ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS (on some models)
Electrical Requirements
120-volt, 60 Hertz, properly grounded branch
circuit protected by a 15-amp or 20-amp circuit
breaker or time delay fuse.
Extension Cord Cautions
Because of potential safety hazards associated
with certain conditions, we strongly recommend
against the use of an extension cord. However,
if you still elect to use an extension cord, it is
absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed,
3-wire grounding-type appliance extension cord
and that the current carrying rating of the cord
in amperes be equivalent to, or greater than,
the branch circuit rating.
Grounding
IMPORTANT—(Please read carefully)
FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, THIS APPLIANCE
MUST BE PROPERLY GROUNDED.
The power cord of this appliance is equipped
with a three-prong (grounding) plug which
mates with a standard three-prong grounding
wall receptacle to
PREFERRED
minimize the
METHOD
possibility of
electric shock
hazard from this
appliance.
The customer
should have the
Ensure proper
wall receptacle
ground exists
before use
and circuit
checked by a
qualified electrician to make sure the receptacle
is properly grounded.
Where a standard two-prong wall receptacle is
encountered, it is the personal responsibility and
obligation of the customer to have it replaced with
a properly grounded three-prong wall receptacle.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES,
CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND)
PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD.
A Usage Situations where Appliance
Power Cord will be Disconnected Infrequently.
An adapter may be used only on a 15-amp
circuit. Do not use an adapter on a 20-amp
circuit. Where local codes permit, a
TEMPORARY CONNECTION may be
made to a properly grounded two-prong wall
receptacle by the use of a UL-listed adapter,
available at most hardware stores. The larger
slot in the adapter must be aligned with the
larger slot in the wall receptacle to provide
proper polarity in the connection of the
power cord.
TEMPORARY
METHOD
(Adapter plugs not
permitted in Canada)
Align large
prongs/slots
Ensure proper
ground and
firm connection
before use
CAUTION: Attaching the adapter
ground terminal to the wall receptacle cover
screw does not ground the appliance unless
the cover screw is metal, and not insulated,
and the wall receptacle is grounded through
the house wiring. The customer should have
the circuit checked by a qualified electrician to
make sure the receptacle is properly grounded.
When disconnecting the power cord from the
adapter, always hold the adapter with one hand.
If this is not done, the adapter ground terminal
is very likely to break with repeated use. Should
this happen, DO NOT USE the appliance until a
proper ground has again been established.
B Usage Situations where Appliance
Power Cord will be Disconnected Frequently.
Do not use an adapter plug in these situations
because disconnecting of the power cord
places undue strain on the adapter and leads to
eventual failure of the adapter ground terminal.
The customer should have the two-prong
wall receptacle replaced with a three-prong
(grounding) receptacle by a qualified electrician
before using the appliance.
The installation of appliances designed for
mobile home installation must conform with
the Manufactured Home Construction and
Safety Standard, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280
(formerly the Federal Standard for Mobile
Home Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD,
Part 280) or, when such standard is not
applicable, the Standard for Manufactured
Home Installations, latest edition (Manufactured
Home Sites, Communities and Set-Ups), ANSI
A225.1, latest edition, or with local codes. In
Canada, mobile home installation must be in
accordance with the current CAN/CSA
Z240/MH Mobile Home Installation Code.
Electric Disconnect
1. Locate disconnect plug on the range back.
2. Pinch sides of connector and pull out of
range back.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
4 SEAL THE OPENINGS
Seal any openings in the wall behind the range
and in the floor under the range when hookups
are completed.
Quality of Flames
The combustion quality of burner flames needs
to be determined visually.
(A) Yellow flames—
Call for service
5 CHECK IGNITION OF SURFACE BURNERS
Operation of all cooktop and oven burners
should be checked after the range and gas
supply lines have been carefully checked
for leaks.
Electric Ignition Models
Select a top burner knob and simultaneously
push in and turn to LITE position. You will hear
a snapping sound indicating proper operation
of the spark module. Once the air has been
purged from the supply lines, burners should
light within 4 seconds. After burner lights,
rotate knob out of the LITE position. Try each
burner in succession until all burners have
been checked.
(B) Yellow tips on
outer cones—
Normal for LP gas
(C) Soft blue flames—
Normal for natural gas
If burner flames look like (A), call for service.
Normal burner flames should look like (B) or
(C), depending on the type of gas you use.
With LP gas, some yellow tipping on outer
cones is normal.
6 CHECK IGNITION OF OVEN BURNER
Your oven is designed to operate quietly and
automatically. To operate the oven, turn the
OVEN SET knob to a setting above 300°F.
After 30-90 seconds, the oven burner will ignite
and burn until the set temperature is reached.
The oven burner will continue to cycle on and
off as necessary to maintain the oven at the
temperature indicated by the OVEN SET knob.
To check ignition of the broil burner, turn
the OVEN SET knob to BROIL . After 30-90
seconds, the broil burner will ignite.
Electric ignition models require electrical
power to operate. In case of a power outage, the
oven burners on these models cannot be lit
manually with a match. Gas will not flow unless
the glow bar is hot.
If the oven is in use when a power outage
occurs, the burner will shut off and cannot be
re-lit until power is restored.
40
7 ADJUST BROIL AND OVEN BURNER AIR
ADJUSTMENT SHUTTERS IF NECESSARY
Air adjustment shutters for the top and bottom
burners regulate the flow of air to the flames.
Air adjustment
shutter
To determine if the bottom burner flames are
burning properly, remove the oven bottom.
Flames should have approximately 1″ blue
cones and, if range is supplied with natural gas,
should burn with no yellow tipping. (With most
LP gas, small yellow tips at the end of outer
cones are normal.) Flames should not lift off
burner ports. If lifting is observed, gradually
reduce air shutter opening until flames are
stabilized.
Loosen
The air adjustment shutter for the top
(broil) burner is in the center of the rear
wall of the oven.
Loosen
Air adjustment
shutter
The shutter for the bottom (oven) burner is
near the back wall behind the kick panel.
Remove the panel. See the Care and Cleaning
section in this guide.
To adjust the flow of air to either burner, loosen
the Phillips head screw and rotate the shutter
toward open or closed position as needed.
Oven bottom
To remove the oven bottom:
1. Remove the knurled screws holding down rear
of the oven bottom.
2. Grasp the oven bottom at finger slots on
each side.
3. Lift the rear of the oven bottom enough to
clear the lip of the range frame, then pull out.
(continued next page)
The flames for the top (broil) burner should be
steady with approximately 1″ blue cones and should
not extend out over the edges of the burner baffle.
