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.
WARNING ANTI-TIP DEVICE
Operating Instructions
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.
Installation Instructions
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 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 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.
Troubleshooting Tips
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.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Have the installer show you the location of the range gas shut-off valve and how to shut it off if
necessary.
Customer Service
■ 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 manual. All other
service should be referred to a qualified
technician.
4
■ 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. 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.
■ 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 of
the range section.
■ Do not leave children alone or unattended
where a range is hot or in operation. They
could be seriously burned.
■ Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang
on the oven door, storage drawer, warming
drawer or cooktop. They could damage the
range and even tip it over, causing severe
personal injury.
■ Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick
up a flaming pan. Turn the controls off.
Smother a flaming pan on a surface burner
by covering the pan completely with a wellfitting 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 or warming drawer can be
smothered completely by closing the oven
door or drawer and turning the control to off
or by using a multi-purpose dry chemical or
foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ Let the burner grates and other surfaces cool
before touching them or leaving them where
children can reach them.
■ Never block the vents (air openings) of the
range. They provide the air inlet and outlet
that are necessary for the range to operate
properly with correct combustion. Air
openings are located at the rear of the
cooktop, at the top and bottom of the oven
door, and at the bottom of the range under
the storage drawer or kick panel.
Customer Service
■ 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 let cooking grease or other
flammable materials accumulate in or near
the range.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ 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.
■ Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
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.
■ Do not store flammable materials in an oven,
a range storage drawer, a warming drawer or
near a cooktop.
Operating Instructions
■ Be sure all packaging materials are removed
from the range before operating it to prevent
fire or smoke damage should the packaging
material ignite.
■ Never wear loose fitting or hanging garments
while using the appliance. Be careful when
reaching for items stored in cabinets over the
range. Flammable material could be ignited
if brought in contact with flame or hot oven
surfaces and may cause severe burns.
Safety Instructions
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
■ For your safety, never use your appliance
for warming or heating the room.

WARNING!
SURFACE BURNERS
Use proper pan size—avoid pans that are unstable or easily tipped. Select cookware having flat bottoms
large enough to cover burner grates. To avoid spillovers, make sure cookware is large enough to contain
the food properly. 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.

■ 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.
■ When using glass cookware, make sure it
is designed for top-of-range cooking.
■ 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.
■ Carefully watch foods being fried at a high
flame setting.
■ 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.
■ 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.
■ 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.
■ When flaming foods are under the hood,
turn the fan off. The fan, if operating, may
spread the flames.
■ Do not use a wok on the cooking surface 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.
■ Never try to move a pan of hot fat, especially
a deep fat fryer. Wait until the fat is cool.
■ Do not leave plastic items on the cooktop—
they may melt if left too close to the vent.
■ Keep all plastics away from the surface
burners.
■ 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.
■ If range is located near a window, do not
hang long curtains that could blow over the
surface 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 manual 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.
■ Be careful when you clean the cooktop
because the area over the pilot (on standing
pilot models) will be hot.
■ Always turn the surface burner controls off
before removing cookware.
Safety Instructions
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.
Stand away from the range when opening the door of a hot oven. The hot air and steam that escape can
cause burns to hands, face and eyes.
SELF-CLEANING OVEN
■ If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions, turn
the oven off and disconnect the power supply.
Have it serviced by a qualified technician.
■ Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial
oven cleaner or oven liner 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.
7
Customer Service
■ Be sure to wipe up excess spillage before
self-cleaning operation.
■ Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the
broiler pan, grid and other cookware.
■ 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.
■ Clean only parts listed in this Owner’s Manual.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
■ Do not use your oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch fire.
■ 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, press the CLEAR/OFF pad, and keep
the oven door closed to contain fire until
it burns out.
Installation Instructions
■ Do not use the oven for a storage area. Items
stored in the oven can ignite.
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
■ Place the oven shelves in the desired position
while the oven is cool.
■ 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. 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.
■ Never use aluminum foil to line the oven
bottom. Improper use of foil could start a fire.
■ Do not use aluminum foil anywhere in the
oven except as described in this manual.
Misuse could result in a fire hazard or
damage to the range.
Operating Instructions
OVEN
ELECTRIC WARMING DRAWER (on some models)
■ The purpose of the warming drawer
is to hold hot cooked foods at serving
temperature. Always start with hot food;
cold food cannot be heated or cooked in
the warming drawer.
■ Do not use the warming drawer to dry
newspapers. If overheated, they can catch
on fire.
■ Do not leave paper products, cooking
utensils or food in the warming drawer
when not in use.
■ Never leave jars or cans of fat drippings in
or near your warming drawer.
■ Always keep wooden and plastic utensils and
canned food a safe distance away from your
warming drawer.
■ Do not warm food in the warming drawer
for more than two hours.

Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
■ Do not touch the heating element or the
interior surface of the warming drawer.
These surfaces may be hot enough to
burn.
REMEMBER: The inside surface of the
warming drawer may be hot when the
drawer is opened.
■ Use care when opening the drawer. Open
the drawer a crack and let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
Hot air or steam which escapes can cause
burns to hands, face and/or eyes.
■ Do not use aluminum foil to line the
drawer. Foil is an excellent heat insulator
and will trap heat beneath it. This will upset
the performance of the drawer and it could
damage the interior finish.

Safety Instructions
Using the surface burners.
Throughout this manual, features and appearance may vary from your model.
How to Light a Surface Burner
Push the control knob in and turn it to the
LITE position.
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.
Operating Instructions
Push the control knob in and turn it
to the LITE position.
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.
On Ranges With Sealed Burners
The largest burners are higher powered
than the others and will bring liquids to a
boil quicker.
Installation Instructions
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.
How to Select Flame Size
For safe handling of cookware, never let the flames
extend up the sides of the cookware.
Watch the flame, not the knob, as you
reduce heat. The flame size on a gas burner
should match the cookware you are using.
Any flame larger than the bottom of the
cookware is wasted and only serves to heat
the handle.
Troubleshooting Tips
In Case of Power Failure
Surface burners in use when an electrical
power failure occurs will continue to
operate normally.
Before Lighting a Burner
After Lighting a Burner
■ If drip pans are supplied with your range,
they should be used at all times.
■ Do not operate the 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.
■ Make sure all grates on the range are in
place before using any burner.
■ Be sure the burners and grates are cool
before you place your hand, a pot holder,
cleaning cloths or other materials on
them.
9
Customer Service
In case of a power failure, you can light the
surface burners on your range with a match.
Hold a lit match to the burner, then push
in and turn the control knob to the LITE
position. Use extreme caution when
lighting burners this way.
Top-of-Range Cookware
Aluminum: Medium-weight cookware is
recommended because it heats quickly
and evenly. Most foods brown evenly in an
aluminum skillet. Use saucepans with tightfitting lids when cooking with minimum
amounts of water.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
Using the surface burners (cont.).
Cast-Iron: If heated slowly, most skillets will
give satisfactory results.
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)
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.
Wok This Way (on models with sealed burners)
We recommend that you use a flat-bottomed wok. They
are available at your local retail store.
Use a flat-bottomed wok.
Customer Service
Troubleshooting Tips
Installation Instructions
Enamelware: Under some conditions,
the enamel of some cookware may melt.
Follow cookware manufacturer’s
recommendations for cooking methods.
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.
10
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.

Safety Instructions
Operating Instructions
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the desired position before you turn the oven on.
Before you begin…
The shelves have stop-locks, so that when
placed correctly on the supports, they will
stop before coming completely out, and will
not tilt.
When placing and removing cookware,
pull the shelf out to the bump on the shelf
support.
To remove a shelf, pull it toward you, tilt the
front end up and pull it out.
To replace, place the end of the shelf (stoplocks) on the support, tilt up the front and
push the shelf in.
The oven has 5 shelf positions.
It also has a special low shelf
position (R) for roasting extra large
items, such as a large turkey.
Oven Vent
Plastic items on the cooktop may
melt if left too close to the vent.
Your oven is vented through ducts at the
rear of the range. Do not block these ducts
when cooking in the oven—it is important
that the flow of hot air from the oven and
fresh air to the oven burner be
uninterrupted. Avoid touching the vent
openings or nearby surfaces during oven or
broiler operation—they may become hot.
■ Handles of pots and pans on the cooktop may
become hot if left too close to the vent.
■ Do not leave plastic items on the cooktop—they
may melt if left too close to the vent.
■ 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.
■ Metal items will become very hot if they are left
on the cooktop, and could cause burns.

If the oven is in use when a power failure

For ovens without a preheat indicator light or tone,
preheat 10 minutes.
Baking results will be better if baking pans
are centered in the oven as much as
possible. Pans should not touch each other
or the walls of the oven. If you need to use
two 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.
Never cover the oven bottom with
aluminum foil.
Cut slits in the foil just like the grid.
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.
Aluminum foil may also be used to catch a spillover.
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.

the shelf supports with cooking oil.
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.
Grate
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).
Drip pan (on some models)
Surface burner
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.
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.
Clean these holes thoroughly on
each burner.
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.
CAUTION: Do not clean the drip pans in a selfcleaning oven.

Customer Service
When replacing the drip pans, make sure
they are in the correct position.
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.
Troubleshooting Tips
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.
Installation Instructions
CAUTION: Do not operate the
burner without all burner parts and
drip pans (if so equipped) in place.
The burner grates and drip pans (if so
equipped) can be lifted off, making them
easy to clean.
For more stubborn stains, use a cleanser

Electrode
Burner head
CAUTION: Do not operate the
burner without all burner parts and
drip pans (if so equipped) in place.
The electrode of the spark igniter is
exposed when the burner head is
removed. 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.
Burner Heads (on sealed burners only)
NOTE: Before removing the burner heads and
caps, remember their size and location. Replace
them in the same location after cleaning.
Use a sewing needle or twist-tie to
unclog the small hole in the burner
head.
For proper ignition, make sure the small
hole in the section that fits over the
electrode is kept open. A sewing needle or
wire twist-tie works well to unclog it.
The slits in the burner heads of your range must be
kept clean at all times for an even, unhampered
flame.
Before putting the burner head back, shake
out excess water and then dry it thoroughly
by setting it in a warm oven for 30 minutes.
Replace the burner heads and caps. Make
sure that the heads and caps are replaced in
the correct location. There is one small, 2
medium and one large head and cap.
NOTE: On some models there are 2 large, one
medium and one small head and cap.
You should clean the surface burners
routinely, especially after bad spillovers,
which could clog these openings.
After cleaning, make sure the slot
in the burner head is positioned
over the electrode.

Burner Caps (on sealed burners only)
Lift off when cool. Wash burner caps in hot,
soapy water and rinse with clean water. You
may scour with a plastic scouring pad to
remove burned-on food particles.
Dry them in a warm oven or with a cloth—
don’t reassemble them wet. Replace the
burner caps.
Make sure that caps are replaced on the
correct size burner. There is one small, 2
medium and one large cap.
NOTE: On some models there are 2 large, one
medium and one small head and cap.
To prevent rusting on cast iron grates, apply
a light coating of cooking oil on the bottom
of the 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.
To get rid of burned-on food, place the
grates in a covered container (or plastic
bag) with 1/4 cup ammonia to loosen the
soil. Let sit overnight (or approximately 12
hours), then scrub with a soap-filled
scouring pad if necessary. Rinse grates
thoroughly and dry completely before
replacing them on the range top.
Although they’re durable, the grates will
gradually lose their shine, regardless of the
best care you can give them. This is due to
their continual exposure to high
temperatures. You will notice this sooner
with lighter color grates.
CAUTION: Do not clean the grates in a dishwasher
or in a self-cleaning oven.
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.
NOTE: 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.
We don’t recommend using aluminum foil
on the oven bottom. It can affect air flow if
the holes are blocked and it can concentrate
heat at the bottom of the oven, resulting in
poor baking performance.
To clean up spillovers, use soap and water,
an abrasive cleaner or soap-filled steel wool
pad. Rinse well to remove any soap before
self-cleaning.
Customer Service
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.

WARNING! ANTI-TIP DEVICE
All ranges can tip and injury could result.
If you pull the range out from the wall for any reason, make sure the Anti-Tip device is engaged when
you push the range back against the wall.
■ For your safety, never use your range for warming or heating the room. Your oven and cooktop
are not designed to heat your kitchen. Top burners should not be operated without cookware
on the grate. Such abuse could result in fire and damage to your range and will void your
warranty.
■ Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in
the vicinity of this or any other appliance. Explosions or fires could result.
Operating Instructions
To prevent accidental tipping of the range, attach an approved Anti-Tip device to the wall. (See Installing
the Anti-Tip Device in this section.) 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.
■ Do not use oven for a storage area. Items stored in the oven can ignite.
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.
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
Installation Safety Instructions section.)
Make sure the wall coverings around your
range can withstand the heat generated (up to
200°F.) by the range. (See the Installation Safety
Instructions section.)
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.

Customer Service
IMPORTANT!
Troubleshooting Tips
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.
Installation Instructions
■ Do not let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate in or near the range.
Provide Adequate Gas Supply
Your range is designed to operate at a pressure of 4 ″ of water column on natural gas or, if designed for
LP gas (propane or butane), 10 ″ of water column.
Make sure you are supplying your range with the
type of gas for which it is designed.
This range is convertible for use on natural or
propane gas. If you decide to use this range on LP
gas, conversion must be made by a qualified LP
installer before attempting to operate the range on
that gas.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
Installation of the range (cont.).
For proper operation, the pressure of natural gas
supplied to the regulator must be between 4″ and
13″ of water column.
Installation Instructions
For LP gas, the pressure supplied must be between
10″ and 13″ of water column.
When checking for proper operation of the
regulator, the inlet pressure must be at least 1″
greater than the operating (manifold) pressure as
given above.
The pressure regulator located at the inlet of the
range manifold must remain in the supply line
regardless of whether natural or LP gas is being used.
A flexible metal appliance connector used to
connect the range to the gas supply line should have
an I.D. of 1/2″ and be 5 feet in length for ease of
installation. In Canada, flexible connectors must
be single wall metal connectors no longer than
6 feet in length.
Connect the Range to Gas
Troubleshooting Tips
Shut off the main gas supply valve before disconnecting the old range and leave it off until the 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.
Install male 1/2″ or 3/4″ flare union adapter to
the NPT internal thread of the manual shut-off
valve, taking care to back-up the shut-off valve
to keep it from turning.
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.
Connect flexible metal appliance connector to
the adapter on the range. Position range to
permit connection at the shut-off valve.
To prevent gas leaks, put pipe joint compound on,
or wrap pipe thread tape with Teflon* around, all
male (external) pipe threads.
Install a manual gas line shut-off valve in the gas
line in an easily accessed location outside of the
range. Make sure everyone operating the range
knows where and how to shut off the gas supply
to the range.
Customer Service
Install male 1/2″ flare union adapter to the
1/2″ NPT internal thread elbow at inlet of
regulator. On models equipped with standard
twin burners, install the male pipe thread end
of the 1/2″ flare union adapter to the 1/2″
NPT internal thread at inlet of pressure
regulator. Use a backup wrench on the
regulator fitting to avoid damage.
When installing the range from the front,
remove the 90° elbow for easier installation.
36
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.

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
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)
Grounding
IMPORTANT—(Please read carefully)
Align large prongs/slots
Ensure proper ground
and firm connection
before use
Preferred Method
CAUTION: Attaching the adapter ground
Ensure proper ground exists
before use
The customer should have the wall receptacle 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.
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.
Customer Service
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT
OR REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND) PRONG
FROM THE POWER CORD.
Troubleshooting Tips
The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a
three-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a
standard three-prong grounding wall receptacle to
minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard
from this appliance.
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.
Installation Instructions
FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, THIS APPLIANCE
MUST BE PROPERLY GROUNDED.
Operating Instructions
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 groundingtype appliance extension cord and that the current
carrying rating of the cord in amperes be equivalent
to, or greater than, the branch circuit rating.
Usage Situations where Appliance
Power Cord will be Disconnected
Infrequently.
39
Electrical Connections (on some models)
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.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
Installation of the range (cont.).
Installation Instructions
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 SetUps), 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.
Seal the Openings
Troubleshooting Tips
Seal any openings in the wall behind the range and
in the floor under the range when hookups are
completed.
Check Ignition of Surface Burners
Operation of all cooktop and oven burners should
be checked after the range and gas supply lines have
been carefully checked for leaks.
Electric Ignition Models
Customer Service
Select a top burner knob and simultaneously push
in and turn to LITE position. You will hear a clicking
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.

Electric Disconnect
■ Locate disconnect plug on the range back.
■ Pinch sides of connector and pull out of range
back.
Safety Instructions
Read these instructions completely and carefully.
Quality of Flames
The combustion quality of burner flames needs to
be determined visually.
(A) Yellow flames—
Call for service
Operating Instructions
(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.
Check Ignition of Oven Burner
Electric ignition models require electrical power
to operate. In case of a power outage, the oven
burners on these models cannot be lit manually
with a match. Gas will not flow unless the glow bar
is hot.
If the oven is in use when a power outage occurs, the
burner will shut off and cannot be re-lit until power
is restored.
To check ignition of the broil burner, press the
BROIL HI/LO pad and then the START pad. After
30-90 seconds, the broil burner will ignite.
Troubleshooting Tips
The oven is designed to operate quietly and
automatically. To operate the oven, press the BAKE
pad and then press the +/– or number pads until
350° appears in the display. Press the START pad.
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 display.
Installation Instructions
With LP gas, some yellow tipping on outer cones is
normal.

To determine if the bottom burner flames are
burning properly, remove the oven bottom. Flames
should have approximately 1″ blue cones and, if
range is supplied with natural gas, should burn with
no yellow tipping. (With most LP gas, small yellow
tips at the end of outer cones are normal.) Flames
should not lift off burner ports. If lifting is observed,
gradually reduce air shutter opening until flames
are stabilized.
Oven bottom
The shutter for the bottom (oven) burner is near
the back wall behind the storage drawer or the
warming drawer (depending on the model).
Remove the drawer. See the Care and cleaning of the
range section.
Troubleshooting Tips
To adjust the flow of air to either burner, loosen the Phillips
head screw and rotate the shutter toward open or closed
position as needed.
To remove the oven bottom:
Remove the knurled screws holding down
rear of the oven bottom.
Grasp the oven bottom at finger slots on
each side.
Lift the rear of the oven bottom enough to
clear the lip of the range frame, then pull out.
The flames for the top (broil) burner should be
steady with approximately 1″ blue cones and should
not extend out over the edges of the burner baffle.
Customer Service
Leveling the Range
42
Remove the storage drawer or warming drawer.
See the Care and cleaning of the range section.
Install the oven shelves in the oven and
position the range where it will be installed.
Use a 3/16″ open-end or
socket wrench to back
out both rear leveling
legs approximately 2
turns.
Check for levelness by placing a spirit level or a
cup, partially filled with water, on one of the
oven shelves. If using a spirit level, take two
readings—with the level placed diagonally first
in one direction and then the other.
Use a 13⁄8″ open-end or
adjustable wrench to
back out the front
leveling legs two turns.
Adjust the leveling legs until the range is level.
After the range is level, slide the range away
from the wall so that the Anti-Tip device
can be installed.
Installing the Anti-Tip Device
Using the device as a template, mark the
