Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
WARNING!
For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire or
explosion, electric shock, or to prevent property damage, personal injury, or loss of life.
Operating Instructions
WARNING ANTI-TIP DEVICE
All ranges can tip and injury could result.
To prevent accidental tipping of the range, attach it to the wall and floor by installing the Anti-Tip
device supplied.
To check if the device is installed and engaged properly, remove the kick panel or storage drawer
and inspect the rear leveling leg. Make sure it fits securely into the slot.
Please refer to the Anti-Tip device information in this manual. Failure to take this precaution
could result in tipping of the range and injury.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
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.
Fluorescent light bulbs contain mercury. If your model has a surface light, you must recycle the
fluorescent light bulb according to local, state and federal codes.

Troubleshooting Tips
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Installation 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.
Care and Cleaning
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.
WARNING!
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
■ Do not store flammable materials in an
oven or near the cooktop.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
■ 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.
Care and Cleaning
■ 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.
Installation Instructions
■ 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.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ Flaming grease outside a pan can be put
out by covering it with baking soda or, if
available, by using a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ Flame in the oven can be smothered
completely by closing the oven door and
turning the oven off or by using a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type fire
extinguisher.
Customer Service
■ For your safety, never use your appliance
for warming or heating the room.
■ Do not let cooking grease or other
flammable materials accumulate in or
near the range.
■ Do not touch the surface units, the heating
elements or the interior surface of the
oven. These surfaces may be hot enough to
burn even though they are dark in color.
During and after use, do not touch, or let
clothing or other flammable materials
contact the surface units, areas nearby the
surface units or any interior area of the
oven; allow sufficient time for cooling first.
■ Potentially hot surfaces include the
cooktop, areas facing the cooktop, oven
vent opening, surfaces near the opening,
crevices around the oven door and metal
trim parts above the door.
■ REMEMBER: The inside surface of the oven
may be hot when the door is opened.
■ Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
■ Keep the hood and grease filters clean
to maintain good venting and to avoid
grease fires.
■ Teach children not to play with the
controls or any other part of the range.
■ Always keep dish towels, dish cloths, pot
holders and other linens a safe distance
from your range.
■ Always keep wooden and plastic utensils
and canned food a safe distance from
your range.
■ Always keep combustible wall coverings,
curtains or drapes a safe distance from
your range.
COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY…
Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meat to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 160°F. and poultry
to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 180°F. Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against
foodborne illness.

Safety Instructions
RADIANT SURFACE UNITS
■ Never leave the surface units unattended at
high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
■ Only certain types of glass, glass ⁄ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed containers are
suitable for cooktop service; others may
break because of the sudden change in
temperature.
■ Always turn the surface units off before
removing cookware.
■ Use care when touching the cooktop. The
glass surface of the cooktop will retain heat
after the controls have been turned off.
■ Keep an eye on foods being fried at high or
medium high heat settings.
■ 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.
■ Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet
sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a
hot surface unit, be careful to avoid steam
burns. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
NOTE: We recommend that you avoid
wiping any surface unit areas until they
have cooled and the indicator light has
gone off. Sugar spills are the exception to
this. Please see the Cleaning the glass
cooktop section.
■ When the cooktop is cool, use only the
recommended cleaning cream to clean
the cooktop.
■ To avoid possible damage to the cooking
surface, do not apply cleaning cream to
the glass surface when it is hot.
■ After cleaning, use a dry cloth or paper
towel to remove all cleaning cream residue.
■ Read and follow all instructions and
warnings on the cleaning cream labels.
Customer Service
■ Use a deep fat thermometer whenever
possible to prevent overheating fat beyond
the smoking point.
■ Be careful when placing spoons or other
stirring utensils on glass cooktop surface
when it is in use. They may become hot and
could cause burns.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ 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.
■ Do not place or store items that can melt or
catch fire on the glass cooktop, even when
it is not being used.
Installation Instructions
■ When flaming foods under the hood, turn
the fan on.
■ Never use the glass cooktop surface as a
cutting board.
Care and Cleaning
■ 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.
■ Do not operate the radiant surface units if
the glass is broken. Spillovers or cleaning
solution may penetrate a broken cooktop
and create a risk of electrical shock.
Contact a qualified technician immediately
should your glass cooktop become broken.
Operating Instructions
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.
■ Avoid scratching the glass cooktop. The
cooktop can be scratched with items such
as sharp instruments; rings or other
jewelry, and rivets on clothing.

Pressure could build up and the container
could burst, causing an injury.
■ Keep the oven vent unobstructed.
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
Care and Cleaning
■ Place the oven shelf in the desired position
while the oven is cool. If shelves must be
handled when hot, do not let pot holder
contact the heating elements.
■ When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
Installation Instructions
■ Pulling out the shelf to the stop-lock is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also
a precaution against burns from touching
hot surfaces of the door or oven walls.
■ Do not use the oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch on fire.
■ Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in an oven can ignite.
■ Do not leave paper products, cooking
utensils or food in the oven when not
in use.
■ Do not use aluminum foil to line oven
bottoms, except as suggested in this
manual. Improper installation of
aluminum foil may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire.
SELF-CLEANING OVEN
Troubleshooting Tips
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.
■ Do not clean the door gasket. The door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage or
move the gasket.
■ If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions,
turn the oven off and disconnect the
power supply. Have it serviced by a
qualified technician.
■ Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the
broiler pan, grid and other cookware.
■ Clean only parts listed in this Owner’s
Manual.
■ Be sure to wipe up excess spillage before
starting the self-cleaning operation.

Preheating and Pan Placement
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it.
Preheating is necessary for good results
when baking cakes, cookies, pastry and
breads.
Do not place foods directly on the
oven floor.
To preheat, set the oven at the correct temperature.
The control will beep when the oven is preheated
and the display will show your set temperature.
This may take approximately 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 shelves, stagger the pans so one
is not directly above the other, and leave
approximately 11⁄2″ between pans, from
the front, back and sides of the wall.
Aluminum Foil
You can use aluminum foil to line the
broiler pan and broiler grid. However,
you must mold the foil tightly to the grid
and cut slits in it just like the grid.
Cut slits in the foil just like the grid.
14
Without the slits, the foil will prevent fat
and meat juices from draining into the
broiler pan. The juices could become
hot enough to catch on fire. If you
do not cut the slits, you are essentially
frying, not broiling.
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.
A smaller sheet of foil may be used to
catch a spillover by placing it on a lower
shelf several inches below the food.
Safety Instructions
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the desired position before you turn the oven on.
How to Set the Oven for Broiling

Safety Instructions
For many foods, especially roasts and poultry, internal food temperature is the best test for doneness. The
temperature probe takes the guesswork out of roasting by cooking foods to the exact doneness you want.
Use of probes other than the one
provided with this product may result in
damage to the probe.
Use the handles of the probe and plug
when inserting and removing them from
the food and outlet.
■ To avoid damaging your probe, do not use
tongs to pull on the cable when removing it.
The temperature probe has a
skewer-like probe at one end and a
plug at the other end that goes into
the outlet in the oven.
Care and Cleaning
Operating Instructions
Using the probe.
■ To avoid breaking the probe, make sure food is
completely defrosted before inserting.
Installation Instructions
Lay the probe on the outside of the
meat along the top or side and mark
with your finger where the edge of
the meat comes to on the probe. The
point should rest in the center of the
thickest meaty part of the roast.
Insert the probe completely into the
meat. It should not touch the bone,
fat or gristle.
For roasts with no bone, insert the probe
into the meatiest part of the roast. For
bone-in ham or lamb, insert the probe
into the center of the lowest large muscle
or joint.
Troubleshooting Tips
Insert the probe into the center of dishes
such as meat loaf or casseroles. When
cooking fish, insert the probe from just
above the gill into the meatiest area,
parallel to the backbone.
Insert the probe into the meatiest part of
the inner thigh from below and parallel
to the leg of a whole turkey.

Safety Instructions
Operating Instructions
The convection oven fan will continue to run and the heating element will continue to operate when the oven door is
opened. DO NOT leave the door open for long periods of time while using convection cooking or you may shorten the
life of the convection heating element.
To help you understand the difference
between convection bake and roast and
traditional bake and roast, here are some
general guidelines.
Convection Bake
Roasting rack
Grid
■ Ideal for evenly browned baked foods cooked
on multiple shelves.
In a convection oven, a fan
circulates hot air over, under and
around the food. This circulating
hot air is evenly distributed
throughout the oven cavity. As a
result, foods are evenly cooked and
browned—often in less time than
with regular heat.
■ Good for large quantities of baked foods.
Heat comes from the heating element in
the rear of the oven. The convection fan
circulates the heated air evenly over and
around the food. Preheating is not
necessary with foods having a bake time
of over 15 minutes.
■ Good for large tender cuts of meat, uncovered.
Heat comes from the top heating
element. The convection fan circulates
the heated air evenly over and around the
food. Meat and poultry are browned on
all sides as if they were cooked on a
rotisserie. Using the roasting rack
provided, heated air will be circulated
over, under and around the food being
roasted. The heated air seals in juices
quickly for a moist and tender product
while, at the same time, creating a rich
golden brown exterior.
Troubleshooting Tips
Broiler pan
■ Good results with cookies, biscuits, brownies,
cupcakes, cream puffs, sweet rolls, angel food
cake and bread.
Convection Roast
Installation Instructions
Care and Cleaning
Using the convection oven.
When you are convection roasting it is
important that you use the broiler pan
and grid and the special roasting rack for
best convection roasting results. The pan
is used to catch grease spills and the grid
is used to prevent grease spatters. Place
the meat on the special roasting rack. The
rack holds the meat. The rack allows the
heated air to circulate under the meat
and increase browning on the underside
of the meat or poultry.
■ Place the shelf in the lowest shelf
position (A).
■ Place the grid on the broiler pan and
put the roasting rack over them.
Roasts or poultry should be cooked on the lowest
shelf position (A) on a shelf.
Adapting Recipes…
You can use your favorite recipes in the
convection oven.
■ For more information on adapting recipes, see
the Convection Cookbook.
When baking, reduce baking
temperature by 25°F.
■ Use pan size recommended.
Customer Service
No need to preheat when cooking
longer than 15 minutes.
20
■ Some package instructions for frozen
casseroles or main dishes have been
developed using commercial convection ovens.
For best results in this oven, preheat the oven
and use the temperature on the package.
Safety Instructions
Cookware for Convection Cooking
Paper and Plastic
Any type of cookware will work in your
convection oven. However, metal pans
heat the fastest and are recommended
for convection baking.
■ Darkened or matte-finished pans will bake
faster than shiny pans.
■ Glass or ceramic pans cook more slowly.
When baking cookies, you will get the
best results if you use a flat cookie sheet
instead of a pan with low sides.
For recipes like oven-baked chicken,
use a pan with low sides. Hot air cannot
circulate well around food in a pan with
high sides.
How to Set the Oven for Convection Baking or Roasting
Press the CONVECTION BAKE or
CONVECTION ROAST pad.
Press the START pad.
To change the oven temperature, press
the CONVECTION BAKE or CONVECTION
ROAST pad and then the number pads to
set the new temperature.
Press the CLEAR/OFF pad when
finished.
NOTE: You will hear a fan while cooking with
convection. The fan will continue to run and the
heating element will continue to operate when
the door is opened.
Because heated air is circulated evenly
throughout the oven, foods can be
baked with excellent results using
multiple shelves.
Offset shelf
For two-shelf baking, place the offset shelf
in the bottom (A) shelf position. Place
the straight shelf in the third (C) shelf
position.
Customer Service
When convection baking with only
1 shelf, follow the shelf positions
recommended in the Using the
oven section.
Multi-shelf baking may increase cook
times slightly for some foods but the
overall result is time saved. Cookies,
muffins, biscuits, and other quick
breads give very good results with
multi-shelf baking.
When baking on 3 shelves, divide the
oven into thirds by placing the offset shelf
in the third (C) shelf position and the
straight shelves in first (A) and fourth (D)
shelf positions.
Troubleshooting Tips
Multi-Shelf Baking
Installation Instructions
Press the number pads to set the

Care and Cleaning
Heat-resistant paper and plastic
containers that are recommended
for use in regular ovens can be used in
convection ovens. Plastic cookware that
is heat-resistant to temperatures of
400°F. can also be used, when oven is
below 400°F.
Metal and Glass
Operating Instructions
Before using your convection oven, check
to see if your cookware leaves room for air
circulation in the oven. If you are baking
with several pans, leave space between
them. Also, be sure the pans do not touch
each other or the walls of the oven.

The type of margarine will affect baking performance!
Most recipes for baking have been developed using high fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you
decrease the fat, the recipe may not give the same results as with a higher fat product.
Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries, cookies or candies are made with low fat spreads. The lower the fat
content of a spread product, the more noticeable these differences become.
Federal standards require products labeled “margarine” to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low fat spreads, on the
other hand, contain less fat and more water. The high moisture content of these spreads affect 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.

Care and cleaning of the range.
Be sure electrical power is 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.
To assure no damage is done to the finish
of the product, the safest way to remove
the adhesive left from packaging tape on
new appliances is an application of a
household liquid dishwashing detergent,
mineral oil or cooking oil.
Apply with a soft cloth and allow to soak.
Wipe dry and then apply an appliance
polish to thoroughly clean and protect
the surface.
Control Panel and Knobs
Clean up spatters with a damp
cloth. Remove heavier soil with warm,
soapy water.

Clean the glass surface with cleaning cream before you use the cooktop for the first time. Also, clean the glass
surface after each use. This helps protect the top and makes clean-up easier.
To clean the cooktop seal, let a wet cloth rest on it for a few minutes, then wipe clean. Use a mild detergent if needed.
Do not use a knife or any sharp object on the seal because it will cut or damage it.
Safety Instructions
Cleaning the glass cooktop.
Daily Cleaning
To maintain and protect the surface of
your new glass cooktop follow these steps.
Before you use the cooktop for the first
time, clean it with cleaning cream.
This helps protect the top and makes
clean-up easier.
NOTE: On models with a white glass cooktop,
any grease spatter or greasy residue from a dish
towel will burn on the cooktop when the surface
units are heated, leaving a brown stain. This can
be removed with the cooktop cleaning cream
and the razor scraper. To avoid this brown
discoloration, remove any spatter with paper
towels and cooktop cleaning cream before
heating any surface unit.
For Heavy, Burned-On Soil…
Allow the cooktop to cool.
Using a razor scraper will not
damage the surface if the 45° angle
is maintained.
Hold scraper at a 45° angle against
the glass ceramic surface. This 45°
angle makes the scraping easier.
Our testing shows that if
you are cooking high sugar
mixtures such as jelly or
fudge and have a spillover,
permanent damage to the
cooktop surface may occur
unless the spillover is
immediately removed.
If any soil remains, repeat the
steps listed above.

Flooring Under the Range
Operating Instructions
Your range, like many other household items, is heavy and
can settle into soft floor coverings such as cushioned vinyl
or carpeting.
When moving the range on this type of flooring, it
should be installed on a 1/4″ thick sheet of
plywood (or similar material) as follows:
Care and Cleaning
Safety Instructions
Installation of the range.
When installing an electric range in new
construction follow Steps 5 and 7 for 4-wire
connection.
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.
Prepare for Electrical Connection
Effective January 1, 1996 the National Electric
Code requires that new construction (not
existing) utilize a 4-conductor connection
to an electric range.
Installation Instructions
Use only a 3-conductor or a 4-conductor UL-listed
range cord. These cords may be provided with
ring terminals on wire and a strain relief device.
A range cord rated at 40 amps with 125/250
minimum volt range is required. A 50 amp range
cord is not recommended but if used, it should
be marked for use with nominal 13⁄8″ diameter
connection openings. Care should be taken
to center the cable and strain relief within the
knockout hole to keep the edge from damaging
the cable.
NOTE: A 4-conductor cord is to be used when the
appliance is installed in a mobile home or when local codes
do not permit grounding through the neutral. If conduit is
being used, go to Step 6 or 7.
Power Cord Strain Relief Installation
Remove the lower rear range wiring cover to
expose the connector block and bracket.
Troubleshooting Tips
Remove the knockout ring (13⁄8″) located
on bracket directly below the connector.
To remove the knockout, use a pair of pliers
to bend the knockout ring away from the
bracket and twist until ring is removed.
Assemble the strain relief in the hole. Insert
the power cord through the strain relief
and tighten. Allow enough slack to easily
attach the cord terminals to the connector
block. If tabs are present at the end of the
winged strain relief, they can be removed
for better fit.
NOTE: Do not install the power cord without a strain relief.
The strain relief bracket should be installed before
reinstalling the rear range wiring cover.
