Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
For Freestanding Ranges:
To check if the bracket is installed and engaged properly, remove the
storage drawer or kick panel and look underneath the range
to see that the leveling leg is engaged in the bracket. On models without
a storage drawer or kick panel, carefully tip the range forward. The
bracket should stop the range within 4 inches. If it
does not, the bracket must be reinstalled. If the range is pulled
from the wall for any reason, always repeat this procedure to
verify the range is properly secured by the anti-tip bracket.
Never completely remove the leveling legs or the range will not
be secured to the anti-tip device properly.
Troubleshooting Tips
Care and Cleaning
For Slide-In Ranges:
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.
For Drop-In Ranges:
To check if the bracket is installed and engaged properly, lower
the oven door and gently apply medium force at the handle end until
movement of the range is detected. Continue pressing until the anti-tip
bracket is engaged and movement stops. A small amount of
movement is acceptable at the back of the range top, but it should be
stable and not tip once the anti-tip bracket is engaged. If it does not,
the bracket must be reinstalled.
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).
WARNING
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE

WARNING
GENERAl SAFETY INSTRuCTIONS
■ Never use your appliance for warming or heating the
room.
■ Be sure your appliance is properly installed and
grounded
by a qualified installer in accordance with the provided
installation instructions.
■ 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. Other
surfaces of the appliance may become hot enough to
cause burns. Potentially hot surfaces include the
cooktop, areas facing the cooktop, oven vent opening,
surfaces near the opening and crevices around the
oven door.
■ 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 transferred to a
qualified technician.
■ Before performing any service, unplug the range or
disconnect the 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 climb, sit or stand
on any part of the appliance.
CAUTION : Do not store items of interest to
children above a range or on the backguard of a
range—children climbing on the range to reach items
could be seriously injured.
■ 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.
■ 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.
kEEP FlAMMABlE MATERIAlS AWAY FROM
■ Do not store or use flammable materials in an oven or
near the cooktop, including paper, plastic, pot holders,
linens, wall coverings, curtains, drapes and gasoline or
other flammable vapors and liquids.
■ Never wear loose-fitting or hanging garments while
using the appliance. These garments may ignite if they
contact hot surfaces, causing severe burns.
■ Do not let cooking grease or other flammable materials
accumulate in or near the range. Grease in the oven or
on the cooktop may ignite.
■ Clean ventilating hoods frequently. Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter.
■ 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.
■ If there is a fire in the oven during baking, smother the
fire by closing the oven door and turning the oven off or
by using a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type fire
extinguisher.
■ If there is a fire in the oven during self-clean, turn the
oven off and wait for the fire to go out. Do not force the
door open. Introduction of fresh air at self-clean
temperatures may lead to a burst of flame from the
oven. Failure to follow this instruction may result in
severe burns.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
WARNING
COOkTOP SAFETY INSTRuCTIONS
■ Never leave the surface units unattended at medium
or high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking and
greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
■ Never leave oil unattended while frying. If allowed
to heat beyond its smoking point, oil may ignite,
resulting in fire that may spread to surrounding
cabinets. Use a deep fat thermometer whenever
possible to monitor oil temperature.
■ To avoid oil spillover and fire, use a minimum amount
of oil when shallow pan-frying and avoid cooking
frozen foods with excessive amounts of ice.
■ Use proper pan size—select cookware having flat
bottoms large enough to cover the surface 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.
WARNING
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.
■ When preparing flaming foods under a hood, turn the
fan on.
RADIANT COOkTOP SAFETY INSTRuCTIONS
(some models)
■ Use care when touching the cooktop. The glass
surface of the cooktop will retain heat after the
controls have been turned off.
■ Do not cook on a broken cooktop. If glass cooktop
should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may
penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of
electric shock. Contact a qualified technician
immediately.
■ Avoid scratching the glass cooktop. The cooktop can
be scratched with items such as knives, sharp
instruments, rings or other jewelry and rivets on
clothing.
■ Do not place or store items that can melt or catch fire
on the glass cooktop, even when it is not being used. If
the cooktop is inadvertently turned on, they may
ignite. Heat from the cooktop or oven vent after it is
turned off may cause them to ignite also.
WARNING
■ Use CERAMA BRYTE® ceramic Cooktop Cleaner and
CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Pad to clean the cooktop.
Wait until the cooktop cools and the indicator light
goes out before cleaning. A wet sponge or cloth
on a hot surface can cause steam burns. Some
cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to
a hot surface. Note: Sugar spills are an exception.
They should be scraped off while still hot using an
oven mitt and a scraper. See the Cleaning the glass
cooktop section for detailed instructions.
■ Read and follow all instructions and warnings on
the cleaning cream label.

About the radiant surface units…
SURFACE
COOKING
The radiant cooktop features heating units
beneath a smooth glass surface.
NOTE: A slight odor is normal when a new
cooktop is used for the first time. It is caused
by the heating of new parts and insulating
materials and will disappear in a short time.
OFF CENTER
Always place the pan in the center of
the surface unit you are cooking on.
The surface unit will cycle on and off to
maintain your selected control setting.
■ Don’t store heavy items above the cooktop.
If they drop onto the cooktop, they can
cause damage.
It is safe to place hot cookware from the
oven or surface on the glass surface when
the surface is cool.
■ Do not use the surface as a cutting board.
Even after the surface units are turned off,
the glass cooktop retains enough heat to
continue cooking. To avoid over-cooking,
remove pans from the surface units when
the food is cooked. Avoid placing anything
on the surface unit until it has cooled
completely.

Care and Cleaning
Operating Instructions
Selecting types of cookware.
Use medium- or heavy-weight cookware.
Aluminum cookware conducts heat faster
than other metals. Cast-iron and coated
cast-iron cookware are slow to absorb heat,
but generally cook evenly at low to medium
heat settings. Steel pans may cook unevenly
if not combined with other metals.
For best cooking results, pans should be
flat on the bottom. Match the size of the
saucepan to the size of the surface unit.
The pan should not extend over the edge
of the surface unit more than 1 inch.
Wok Cooking
We recommend that you use only a flatbottomed wok. They are available at your
local retail store.
Do not use woks that have support rings. Use
of these types of woks, with or without the
ring in place, can be dangerous.
Use only flat-bottomed woks.
Placing the ring over the surface unit will
cause a buildup of heat that will damage
the porcelain cooktop. Do not try to use such
woks without the ring. You could be seriously
burned if the wok tips over.

Type of Margarine Will Affect Baking Performance!
Most recipes for baking have been
developed using high fat products such
as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you
decrease the fat, the recipe may not
give the same results as with a higher
fat product.
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.
For ovens without a preheat indicator light
or tone, preheat 10 minutes.
Baking results will be better if baking
pans are centered in the oven as much as
possible. Pans should not touch each other
or the walls of the oven. If you need to use
two racks, stagger the pans so one is
not directly above the other, and leave
approximately 11⁄2″ from the front
of the pan to the front of the rack.
Aluminum Foil
Do not use aluminum foil to line oven
bottoms. The foil will trap heat below and
upset the performance of the oven. Foil
can melt and permanently damage the
oven bottom. Damage from improper use
of aluminum foil is not covered by the
product warranty
Foil may be used to catch spills by placing
a sheet on a lower rack, several inches
below the food .Do not use more foil than
necessary and never entirely cover an
oven rack with aluminum foil. Keep foil at
least 1-1/2” from oven walls to prevent
poor heat circulation.
How to Set the Oven for Broiling
If your range is connected
to 208 volts, rare steaks
may be broiled by preheating
the broiler and positioning
the oven rack one position
higher.
On models without an oven temperature knob:
Place the meat or fish on a broiler grid
in a broiler pan.
Follow suggested rack positions in the
Broiling Guide.
Leave the door open to the broil stop
position. The door stays open by itself,
yet the proper temperature is
maintained in the oven.
Use LO Broil to cook foods such as poultry
or thick cuts of meat thoroughly without
over-browning them.
Touch the BROIL HI/LO pad once
for HI BROIL.
To change to LO Broil, touch
the Broil HI/LO pad again.
12
Touch the START/ON pad.
When broiling is finished, touch
the CLEAR/OFF pad.
On models with an oven temperature knob:
Place the meat or fish on a broiler grid
in a broiler pan.
Follow suggested rack positions
in the Broiling Guide.
Close the oven door.
Turn the Oven Temperature Knob to
BROIL.
When broiling is finished, turn the
Oven Temperature Knob to OFF.

the oven, clean for a specific length of time
and then turn off automatically.
After a Clean Cycle
You cannot set the oven for cooking until
the oven is cool enough for the door to be
unlatched.
■ You cannot set the oven for cooking until
the oven is cool enough for the door
to unlock.
You may notice some white ash in the oven.
Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the
oven cools.
■ While the oven is self-cleaning, you can

■ If the racks become hard to slide, apply a
small amount of vegetable oil or cooking oil
to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the
oven racks with the paper towel.
Be sure electrical power is off and all surfaces are cool before cleaning any part of the range.
WARNING: If your range is
removed for cleaning, servicing or any
reason, be sure the anti-tip device is
re-engaged properly when the range
is replaced. Failure to take this
precaution could result in tipping
of the range and cause injury.
Oven Interior (non-self clean models)
Let the range cool before cleaning. We
recommend that you wear rubber gloves
when cleaning the range.
Soap and water will normally do the job.
Heavy spattering or spillovers may require
cleaning with a mild abrasive cleaner.
Soap-filled scouring pads may also be used.
Household ammonia may make the cleaning
job easier. Place 1/2 cup in a shallow glass or
pottery container in a cold oven overnight.
If necessary, you may use an oven cleaner.
Follow the package directions.
Do not spray oven cleaner on the electrical
controls and switches because it could cause
a short circuit and result in sparking or fire.
Do not allow a film from the cleaner to build
up on the temperature sensor–it could cause
the oven to heat improperly. (The sensor is
located at the top of the oven.) Carefully wipe
the sensor clean after each oven cleaning,
being careful not to move the sensor as a
change in its position could affect how the
oven bakes.
Do not spray any oven cleaner on the oven
door, handles or any exterior surface of the
oven, cabinets or painted surfaces. The cleaner
can damage these surfaces.
Lift-Off Oven Door
To clean the outside of the door:
Do not lift the door by the handle. Make sure
the oven is completely cool.
■ Use soap and water to thoroughly clean
the top, sides and front of the oven door.
Rinse well. You may also use a glass
cleaner to clean the glass on the outside of
the door. Do not let water drip into the vent
openings.
To remove the door, open it to the special
stop position. Grasp firmly on each side and
lift the door straight up and off the hinges.
Do not place hands between the hinge and
the oven door frame.
To clean the inside of the door:
■ Do not use oven cleaners, cleaning
powders or harsh abrasives on the
outside of the door.
■ Do not allow excess water to run into any
holes or slots in the door.
■ Soap and water will normally do the job.
Heavy spattering or spillovers may require
cleaning with a mild abrasive cleaner.
Soap-filled, steel-wool pads may also
be used.
Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or
acid content (such as milk, tomatoes,
sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain
on the surface. They may cause a dull spot
even after cleaning.

The gasket is designed with a gap
at the bottom to allow for proper
air circulation.
Because the area inside the gasket
is cleaned during the self-clean cycle,
you do not need to clean this by hand
on self-clean models.
The area outside the gasket and the
front frame can be cleaned with a
soap-filled steel-wool pad, hot water
and detergent. Rinse well with a
vinegar and water solution.
Do not rub or clean the door gasket—
it has an extremely low resistance to
abrasion.
If you notice the gasket becoming
worn, frayed or damaged in any way,
or if it has become displaced on the
door, you should have it replaced.
To replace the door, make sure the hinges
are in the special stop position. Position
the slots in the bottom of the door squarely
over the hinges and slowly lower it over
both hinges.
■ Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato
sauces and basting materials containing
acids may cause discoloration and should
be wiped up immediately. When surface is
cool, clean and rinse.
Troubleshooting Tips
Lift the door straight up and off the
