IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Read all instructions before using this appliance.
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.

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
(continued)
• 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, broiler 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.
• For your safety, never use your appliance for
warming or heating the room.
• 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 broiler or 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.
• When cooking pork, follow the directions exactly
and always cook the meat to an internal temperature
of at least 170°F. This assures that, in the remote
possibility that trichina may be present in the meat,
it will be killed and the meat will be safe to eat.
4
Surface Cooking
• 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 broiler drawer or storage drawer.
• 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.
• Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
Cleaning Your Range
Baking, Broiling and Roasting
• Clean only parts listed in this Use and Care Guide.
• Keep range clean and free of accumulations of
grease or spillovers, which may ignite.
• Be careful when you clean the cooktop because
the area over the pilot (on standing pilot models)
will be hot.
• For continuous clean models, do not use oven
cleaners on any of the continuous cleaning surfaces.
Continuous cleaning surfaces can be identified by
their rough surface finish.
• Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in the oven can ignite.
• Keep the oven free from grease buildup.

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 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.
• 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.
• When using glass cookware, make sure it is
designed for top-of-range cooking.
• 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.

SURFACE COOKING
Surface Burner Controls
Knobs that turn the surface burners on and off are
marked as to which burners they control. 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 the 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
Electric Ignition Models:
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.
Standing Pilot Models:
Push control knob in and turn it to HI position.
The burner should light within a few seconds.
Turn the knob to adjust the flame size.
Flame will be almost horizontal and will lift
slightly away from the burner when the burner
is first turned on. A blowing or hissing sound may
be heard for 30 to 60 seconds. This normal sound is
due to improved injection of gas and air into the
burner. Put a pan on the burner before lighting it,
or adjust the flame to match pan size as soon as it
lights, and the blowing or hissing sound will be
much less noticeable.
In case of a 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.
• Be sure the burners and grates are cool before you place your hand, a pot
holder, cleaning cloths or other materials on them.
8
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.
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.
A traditional round bottom wok can be used with Wok
Holder accessory, model JXWK which can be ordered
from your appliance dealer. The Wok Holder fits on
top of the range grate to provide support and proper
air circulation for traditional round bottom woks only.
Do not use flat bottomed woks with the Wok Holder.
Do not use a wok on any
other 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. Do not try to use such woks without
the ring unless you are using the Wok Holder. You
could be seriously burned if the wok tipped over.

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.
CLOCK AND TIMER
(on some models)
You have the choice of having the timer show the
time counting down or the time of day. In either case,
the timer will signal at the end of the timer period to

USING YOUR OVEN
Before Using Your Oven
Power Outage—Electric Ignition
Power Outage—Standing Pilot
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.
An electrical power failure will not affect the
standing oven pilot.
Clock and Timer
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.
Oven Control
Your oven is controlled by a single OVEN CONTROL knob.
It will normally take 30-90 seconds before the flame comes on. After the
oven reaches the selected temperature, the oven burner cycles—off
completely, then on with a full flame—to maintain the selected temperature.
Oven Light (on some models)
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.
Use the switch on the lower control panel to turn the
light on or off.

Oven Shelves
The shelves are
designed with stopBump
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.
Shelf Positions
The oven has five shelf supports for baking and
roasting 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, Broiling and Roasting sections.
E

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.
• 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.
12
• 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.
• Do not leave plastic
items on the cooktop—
they may melt if left
too close to the vent.
Vent appearance and location vary.
BAKING
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
2. Check food for doneness at minimum time on
recipe. Cook longer if necessary.
3. Turn the OVEN CONTROL knob to OFF and
then remove food.
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the
correct position before you turn the oven on.
1. Close the oven door. Turn the OVEN CONTROL
knob to the desired temperature.
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.

BAKING
(continued)
Preheating
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.
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.
Baking Guides
When using prepared baking mixes, follow package recipe or
instructions for best baking results.
Cookies
Aluminum Foil
When baking
cookies, flat cookie
sheets (without sides)
produce betterlooking 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.
14
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 8² or 9²
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
Baking
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.”
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.
15
ADJUST THE OVEN THERMOSTAT—
DO IT YOURSELF!
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.
16
To Adjust the Thermostat:
(appearance may vary)
Pull the OVEN CONTROL knob off the range and
look at the back side.
To make adjustment, loosen (approximately one turn),
but do not completely remove, the two screws on the
back of the knob. With the back of the knob facing
you, hold the outer edge of the knob with one hand
and turn the front of the knob with the other hand.
To raise the oven temperature, move the top screw
toward the right. You’ll hear a click for each notch
you move the knob. To lower the temperature, move
the top screw toward the left. Each click will change
the oven temperature approximately 10°F. (Range is
plus or minus 60°F. from the arrow.)
We suggest that you make the adjustment one click
from the original setting and check oven performance
before making any additional adjustments.
After the adjustment is made, retighten screws
so they are snug, but be careful not to overtighten.
Re-install knob on range and check performance.
ROASTING

1. Position oven shelf
at (B) position for
small size roast
(3 to 5 lbs.) and at
(R) position for
larger roasts.
B
A
Roasting is really a baking procedure used for meats.
Therefore the oven controls are set for Baking.
(You may hear a slight clicking sound indicating the
oven is working properly.)
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. Internal temperature will rise about 5° to 10°F.
If you wish to compensate for temperature rise,
remove the roast from the oven when its internal
temperature is 5° to 10°F. less than 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 CONTROL knob to the desired
temperature. See the Roasting Guide for
temperatures and approximate cooking times.
4. When roasting is finished, turn the OVEN
CONTROL knob to OFF and then remove the food
from the oven.
Adjust the Oven Thermostat
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.
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.)
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.
(continued next page)
17
Roasting
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. 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.
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 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).

18
BROILING
Both the oven and broiler compartment doors
must be closed during broiling.
Turn most foods once during cooking (the exception
is thin fillets of fish; oil one side, place that side down
on broiler grid and cook without turning until done).
Time foods for about one-half the total cooking time,
turn food, then continue to cook to preferred doneness.
1. You can change the distance of the food from the
heat source by positioning the broiler pan and grid
on one of three shelf positions in the broiler
compartment—A (bottom of broiler compartment),
B (middle) and C (top).
2. Preheating the broiler or oven is not necessary and
can produce poor results.
3. If meat has fat or gristle around the edge, cut
vertical slashes through both about 2² apart. If
desired, the fat may be trimmed, leaving a layer
about 1/8² thick.
4. Arrange the food on the grid and position the
broiler pan on the appropriate shelf in the oven or
broiling compartment. Placing food closer to the
flame increases exterior browning of the food, but
also increases spattering and the possibility of fats
and meat juices igniting.
5. Close the oven and broiler compartment door.
6. Turn the OVEN CONTROL knob to BROIL.
7. Turn the OVEN CONTROL knob to OFF. Remove
the broiler pan from the broiler compartment and
serve the food immediately. Leave the pan outside
the range to cool.
Roasting
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.
Your range has a compartment below the oven for
broiling. A specially designed broiler pan and grid
allow dripping fat to drain away from the food and
keep it away from the high heat of the gas flame.
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. 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.
19
Broiling
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.
BROILING GUIDE
• If desired, marinate meats or chicken before broiling.
Or brush with barbecue sauce last 5 to 10 minutes only.
• When arranging the food on the pan, do not let fatty
edges hang over the sides because dripping fat
could soil the oven.
• The broiler compartment does not need to be
preheated. However, for very thin foods, or to
increase browning, preheat if desired.
• Frozen steaks can be broiled by positioning the shelf
at the next lowest shelf position and increasing the
cooking time given in this guide 11⁄2 times per side.
The oven and broiler compartment doors must be
closed during broiling.
• Always use the broiler pan and grid that comes with
your range. It is designed to minimize smoking and
spattering by trapping juices in the shielded lower
part of the pan.
• For steaks and chops, slash 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 juices.

CARE AND CLEANING
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.
BE SURE ELECTRICAL POWER IS
DISCONNECTED BEFORE CLEANING ANY
PART OF YOUR RANGE.
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.
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.
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.
When replacing the drip pans, make sure they are in
the correct position.
CAUTION: Do not clean the drip pans in a selfcleaning oven.

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.
Cooktop Surface
Oven Bottom
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.
Be careful when you clean the cooktop because
the area over the pilot will be hot (on models with
standing pilots).
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.
If a spillover does occur on the oven bottom, allow
the oven to cool first. Remove the oven bottom for
easier clean-up and to prevent damage to the
continuous cleaning oven coating (on some models).
Frequent wipings with mild soap and water
(particularly after cooking meat) will prolong the
time between major cleanings. Rinse thoroughly.
Soap left on the oven bottom can cause stains.
For heavy soil, use an abrasive cleaner or a soapfilled steel wool pad. A commercial oven cleaner
may also be used, following the package directions.
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.

Care and Cleaning
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.
CARE AND CLEANING
(continued)
Oven Light Bulb
(on some models)
The light bulb is located in the upper left corner (may vary) of the oven.
Before replacing your oven light bulb, disconnect the electrical power to the
range at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel or unplug the range from the
electrical outlet. Let the bulb cool completely before removing it. Replace
the bulb with a 40 watt appliance bulb only. Do not touch a hot bulb with a
damp cloth as the bulb will break.
Control Panel and Knobs
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.
Removable Broiler Drawer
The control knobs may
be removed for easier
cleaning. To remove 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.
(on some models)
To remove:
1. When the broiler is cool, remove the grid and pan.
2. Pull the broiler drawer out until it stops, then push
it back in about one inch.
3. Grasp the handle, lift and pull the broiler drawer out.
Clean the broiler drawer with hot soapy water.
To replace:
Hold the broiler drawer in the raised position as you
slide it partway into the range. Then lower the drawer
and push it completely closed.
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
24
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.
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 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). Lower cooktop gently to avoid
blowing out pilot flames (on standing pilot models).
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, storage
drawer or broiler drawer (depending on the model).
Vent appearance and location vary.
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 the storage drawer:
1. Pull the drawer straight
out until it stops.
2. Tilt the front of the drawer
up and free of the range.
To replace the storage drawer:
1. Set the stops on the back of the drawer over the
stops in the range.
2. Slide the drawer evenly and straight back, so that
the rails in the range are engaged.
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 tabs at the base of
the range. Pull the bottom of the
panel forward until the spring clips
are released at the top of the panel.
To replace, insert the two slots
at the bottom of the panel onto
the two tabs at the base of the
range and push the top of the
panel forward to engage the
spring clips.
25
CARE AND CLEANING
(continued)
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 hinges snap back against the oven frame, pull
them back out.
TO CLEAN THE DOOR:
(Do not immerse door in water.)
Inside of door:
• Allow to cool before cleaning. For light soil, wipe
frequently with mild soap and water (especially after
cooking meat). This will prolong the time between
major cleanings. Rinse thoroughly.
NOTE: Soap left on the oven door causes
additional stains when the oven is reheated.
• For heavy soil, you can use an oven cleaner (to
avoid damage to continuous clean oven surfaces,
remove the door of these models before spraying)
and follow label instructions. Rinse well.
See “Cautions about using spray-on oven cleaners”
below.
Outside of 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 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.
Porcelain Oven Interior (on all models except Continuous-Cleaning models)
With proper care, the porcelain enamel interior will
retain its attractive finish for many years.
Soap and water will normally do the job. Heavy
spattering or spillovers may require cleaning with a
mild abrasive cleanser. Soap-filled steel wool pads
may also be used. Do not allow food spills with a high
sugar or acid content (such as tomatoes, sauerkraut,
fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface.
They may cause dull spots even after cleaning.
Household ammonia may make the cleaning job
easier. Place 1/2 cup ammonia in a shallow glass pan
and leave in a cold oven overnight. The ammonia
fumes will help loosen the burned-on grease and food.
When necessary, you may use a commercial oven
cleaner. Follow the package directions.
26
Cautions about using spray-on oven cleaners:
• Be careful where the oven cleaner is sprayed.
• Do not spray oven cleaner on the electrical controls
and switches (on some models) because it could
cause a short circuit and result in sparking or fire.
• Do not allow a film from the cleaner to remain on
the temperature sensing bulb—it could cause the
oven to heat improperly. (The bulb is located at the
rear of the oven.) Carefully wipe the bulb clean after
each oven cleaning, being careful not to move the
bulb as a change in its position could affect how the
oven bakes.
• Do not spray any oven cleaner on the outside oven
door, handles or any exterior surface of the oven,
cabinet or painted surfaces. The cleaner can damage
these surfaces.
Special Care of Continuous-Cleaning Oven Interior (on some models)
This special coating is not used on the oven
shelves, oven bottom or the inside of the oven
door. Remove these to clean with a commercial
oven cleaner to prevent damaging the ContinuousCleaning Oven coating.
Make sure the oven bottom is in place before
you turn the oven on for any reason.
Use care in removing and replacing the oven
bottom and shelves and in placing and removing
dishes and food to avoid scratching, rubbing or
otherwise damaging the porous finish on the oven walls.
To Clean the Continuous-Cleaning Oven:
1. Let range parts cool before handling. We recommend
rubber gloves be worn when cleaning.
2. Remove shelves and cookware.
3. Soil visibility may be reduced by operating the oven
at 400°F. Close the door and turn the OVEN
CONTROL knob to 400°F. Time for at least four
hours. Repeated cycles may be necessary before
improvement in appearance is apparent.
Remember: During the operation of the oven, the
door and other range surfaces will get hot enough to
cause burns. Do not touch. Let the range cool before
replacing the oven shelves.
4. If a spillover or heavy soiling occurs on the porous
surface, as soon as the oven has cooled, remove as
much of the soil as possible using a small amount of
water and a stiff-bristle nylon brush. Use water
sparingly and change it frequently, keeping it as
clean as possible, and be sure to blot it up with paper
towels, cloths or sponges. Do not rub or scrub with
paper towels, cloths or sponges, since they will leave
unsightly lint on the oven finish. If water leaves a
white ring on the finish as it dries, apply water again
and blot it with a clean sponge, starting at the edge
of the ring and working toward the center.
The oven bottom has a porcelain enamel finish.
The oven bottom comes out for cleaning away from the
Continuous-Cleaning Oven.
The inside of the oven door has a porcelain enamel
finish. The oven door lifts off for cleaning away from
the Continuous-Cleaning Oven. For instructions on
how to clean the inside of the oven door refer to the
Lift-Off Oven Door section.
Do not use soap, detergent, steel wool pads,
commercial oven cleaner, silicone oven sprays,
coarse pads or coarse brushes on the porous
surface. These products will spot, clog and damage
the porous surface and reduce its ability to work.
Do not scrape the porous surface with a knife or
spatula—they could permanently damage the finish.
27
Care and Cleaning
The special coating is a porous ceramic material,
which is dark in color and feels slightly rough to
the touch.
The Continuous-Cleaning Oven cleans itself while
cooking. The oven walls are finished with a special
coating that cannot be cleaned in the usual manner with
soap, detergents, steel wool pads, commercial oven
cleaners, coarse abrasive pads or coarse brushes. Use of
such cleansers and/or the use of oven sprays will cause
permanent damage.
If magnified, the surface would appear as peaks,
valleys and sub-surface ‘‘tunnels.’’ This rough finish
tends to prevent grease spatters from forming little
beads or droplets that run down the side walls of a
hard-surface oven liner, leaving unsightly streaks that
require hand cleaning. Instead, when spatter hits the
porous finish, it is dispersed and partially absorbed.
This spreading action increases the exposure of oven
soil to heated air and makes it somewhat less noticeable.
Soil may not disappear completely and at some time
after extended usage, stains may appear that cannot
be removed.
The special coating works best on small amounts
of spatter. It does not work well with larger spills,
especially sugars, egg or dairy mixtures. The oven
bottom does not have the continuous cleaning oven
coating and can be removed and cleaned with a
commercial oven cleaner.

Electrical Connections in this section.
• Before installing your range on linoleum or
any other synthetic floor covering, make sure
the floor covering can withstand 180°F. without
shrinking, warping or discoloring. Do not install
the range over carpeting unless a sheet of 1/4²
thick plywood or similar insulator is placed
between the range and carpeting.
• Make sure the wall coverings around the
range can withstand heat generated by the
range up to 200°F.
• Avoid placing cabinets above the range. To
reduce the hazard caused by reaching over the
open flames of operating burners, install a
ventilation hood over the range that projects
forward at least 5² beyond the front of the cabinets.
• The ventilating hood must be constructed of
sheet metal not less than 0.0122² thick. Install
above the cooktop with a clearance of not less
than 1/4² between the hood and the underside
of the combustible material or metal cabinet.
The hood must be at least as wide as the

Clearance between the cooking surface and the
ventilation hood surface MUST NEVER BE
LESS THAN 24 INCHES.
EXCEPTION: Installation of a listed microwave
oven or cooking appliance over the cooktop shall
conform to the installation instructions packed
with that appliance.
• If cabinets are placed above the range, allow a
minimum clearance of 30² between the cooking
surface and the bottom of unprotected cabinets.
• If a 30² clearance between cooking surface
and overhead combustible material or metal
cabinets cannot be maintained, protect the
underside of the cabinets above the cooktop with
not less than 1/4² insulating millboard covered
with sheet metal not less than 0.0122² thick.
• Clearance between the cooking surface and
protected cabinets MUST NEVER BE LESS

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
(continued)
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 0² 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, kick
panel or broiler drawer.
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.)
30
TOOLS YOU WILL NEED
• Phillips and flat-blade screwdrivers
• Pencil and ruler
• Two pipe wrenches (one for backup)
• 13⁄8² open-end or adjustable wrench
• Nut drivers or wrenches: 3/16² and 1/4²
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 (1/2² 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 (3/4² or 1/2² NPT x 1/2² I.D.)
• Flare union adapter for connection to pressure
regulator on range (1/2² NPT x 1/2² 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.
1 PROVIDE ADEQUATE GAS SUPPLY
Your range is designed to operate at a pressure
of 4² of water column on natural gas or, if designed
for LP gas (propane or butane), 10² 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 4² and
13² of water column. For LP gas, the pressure
supplied must be between 10² and 13² of water
column. When checking for proper operation of
the regulator, the inlet pressure must be at least
1² 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 1/2² 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.

the range. Make sure everyone operating the
range knows where and how to shut off the gas
supply to the range.
2. Install male 1/2² flare union adapter to
the 1/2² NPT internal thread elbow at inlet of
regulator. On models equipped with
standard twin burners, install the male pipe
thread end of the 1/2² flare union adapter to
the 1/2² 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 1/2² or 3/4² 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
PREFERRED
to 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.
(continued next page)

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
(continued)
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS (continued)
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.
34
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.
4 SEAL THE OPENINGS
Adjust the Surface Burner Pilots if Necessary
Seal any openings in the wall behind the range
and in the floor under the range when hookups
are completed.
5 LIGHT THE PILOTS
(For Models Equipped with Standing Pilots.
If the range is an electric ignition model, the
burners are ignited by electric ignition which
eliminates the need for standing pilot lights.)
The range should be installed in its permanent
position before any pilots are lit or adjusted.
Light the Surface Burner Pilots
CAUTION: Make sure the surface burner
control knobs are in the OFF position before
attempting to light the pilots.
1. Raise the cooktop.
2. Light both pilots with a match.
3. To avoid pilot outage, use caution when
closing cooktop after lighting pilots.
1. Raise the cooktop.
2. Locate the pilot
adjustment screw. It can
be accessed through the
small hole near the center
of the manifold panel.
3. To adjust, use a blade-type screwdriver with
a shaft diameter of less than 3/16². Turn pilot
adjustment screw until pilot is 5/16² high. Do
not reduce the flame to less than 5/16² or pilot
outage may occur. A pilot flame burning higher
than recommended may generate soot (carbon
black) on the bottom of your cooktop.
Light the Oven Pilot
⁄ ²
5 16
NOTE: Do not leave standing pilot lit in a newly
constructed or remodeled home or apartment
that will be unoccupied for more than a month.
Each pilot flame was adjusted at the factory to be
approximately 5/16² tall. A tinge of yellow
appearing at the upper tip is normal. If you find
pilot adjustment is necessary, follow instructions
at right.
CAUTION: Make sure the OVEN CONTROL
knob is in the OFF position before attempting to
light the pilot.
1. Remove the broiler drawer by sliding the
drawer all the way out and then lifting slightly to
remove it from its tracks.
2. Locate the pilot at the
back of the broiler
compartment. The pilot
is attached to the left
side of the oven burner.
3. Light the pilot with a
match. No adjustments are
required for natural gas.
If range is connected to
LP gas, contact the
person who installed
your range or
made the conversion.

4. Turn the OVEN CONTROL knob to a setting
above 200°F. The pilot flame will increase in size
and impinge on the temperature-response element.
The oven burner will light in 30-90 seconds.
The oven burner will operate 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 CONTROL knob.
6 CHECK IGNITION OF SURFACE BURNERS
Operation of all cooktop and oven burners
should be checked after the pilots have been
lighted (on some models) and range and gas
supply lines have been carefully checked
for leaks.
Standing Pilot Models
Select a top burner knob and simultaneously
push in and turn to HI position. The burner
should light within a few seconds. Try each
burner in succession until all burners have
been checked.
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.
36
(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.
7 CHECK IGNITION OF OVEN BURNER
Your oven is designed to operate quietly and
automatically. To operate the oven, turn the OVEN
CONTROL knob to a setting above 200°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 CONTROL knob.
Electric ignition models require electrical
power to operate. The oven cannot be lit during a
power outage. 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.
8 ADJUST BROIL AND OVEN BURNER AIR
ADJUSTMENT SHUTTERS ON MODELS WITH A
STORAGE DRAWER, IF NECESSARY (See Step 9
if your range is equipped with a broiler drawer.)
Air adjustment shutters for the top and bottom
burners regulate the flow of air to the flames.

allow more or less air into the burner tube.
10 LEVELING THE RANGE
With the oven bottom removed, properly
adjusted flames should have approximately 1²
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.
