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.

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 LP with high
butane gas content. 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.
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.
• 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, storage drawer or cooktop. They
could damage the range and even tip it over,
causing severe personal injury.
• Let the burner grates and other surfaces cool
before touching them or leaving them where
children can reach them.
• Never wear loose fitting or hanging garments
while using the appliance. Be careful when
reaching for items stored in cabinets over the
cooktop. Flammable material could be ignited if
brought in contact with flame or hot oven surfaces
and may cause severe burns.
• Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up
a flaming pan. Turn the controls off. Smother a
flaming pan on a surface unit by covering the
pan completely with a well-fitting lid, cookie
sheet or flat tray. Use a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
Flaming grease outside a pan can be put out by
covering it with baking soda or, if available, by
using a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type
fire extinguisher.
Flame in the oven can be smothered completely
by closing the oven door and turning the oven off
or by using a multi-purpose dry chemical or foamtype fire extinguisher.
• Do not store flammable materials in an oven,
a storage drawer or near a cooktop.
• DO NOT STORE OR USE COMBUSTIBLE
MATERIALS, GASOLINE OR OTHER
FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND LIQUIDS IN
THE VICINITY OF THIS OR ANY OTHER
APPLIANCE.
• Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
• Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meat to at
least an INTERNAL temperature of 160ºF. and
poultry to at least an INTERNAL temperature
of 180ºF. Cooking to these temperatures usually
protects against foodborne illness.
4
Surface Cooking
• Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
• Always use the LITE position (on electric
ignition models) or the HI position (on standing
pilot models) when igniting the top burners and
make sure the burners have ignited.
• Never leave the surface burners unattended at
high flame settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
• Adjust the top burner flame size so it does not
extend beyond the edge of the cookware.
Excessive flame is hazardous.
• Use only dry pot holders—moist or damp pot holders
on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam.
• Do not let pot holders come near open flames
when lifting cookware. Do not use a towel or
other bulky cloth in place of a pot holder.
• To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition
of flammable materials and spillage, turn
cookware handles toward the side or back of the
range without extending over adjacent burners.
• Always turn the surface burners to off before
removing cookware.
• Carefully watch foods being fried at a high
flame setting.
• Never block the vents (air openings) of the
range. They provide the air inlet and outlet that
are necessary for the range to operate properly
with correct combustion. Air openings are located
at the rear of the cooktop, at the top and bottom of
the oven door, and at the bottom of the range
under the storage drawer or kick panel.
• Do not use a wok on models with sealed burners
if the wok has a round metal ring that is placed
over the burner grate to support the wok. This
ring acts as a heat trap, which may damage the
burner grate and burner head. Also, it may cause
the burner to work improperly. This may cause a
carbon monoxide level above that allowed by
current standards, resulting in a health hazard.
• Foods for frying should be as dry as possible.
Frost on frozen foods or moisture on fresh foods can
cause hot fat to bubble up and over the sides of the pan.
• Use the least possible amount of fat for effective
shallow or deep-fat frying. Filling the pan too full
of fat can cause spillovers when food is added.
• Use a deep fat thermometer whenever possible to
prevent overheating fat beyond the smoking point.
• Never try to move a pan of hot fat, especially a
deep fat fryer. Wait until the fat is cool.
Baking, Broiling and Roasting
• Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in the oven can ignite.
• Place the oven shelves in the desired position
while the oven is cool.
• Stand away from the range when opening the
door of a hot oven. The hot air and steam that
escapes can cause burns to hands, face and eyes.
• Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
• Pulling out the shelf to the shelf-stop is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also a
precaution against burns from touching hot
surfaces of the door or oven walls. The lowest
position “R” is not designed to slide.
• Do not heat unopened food containers. Pressure
could build up and the container could burst,
causing an injury.
• Do not use aluminum foil anywhere in the oven
except as described in this guide. Misuse could
result in a fire hazard or damage to the range.
• Never use aluminum foil to line the oven
bottom. Improper use of foil could start a fire.
• When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
• Use only glass cookware that is recommended
for use in gas ovens.
• Always remove the broiler pan from range as
soon as you finish broiling. Grease left in the pan
can catch fire if oven is used without removing
the grease from the broiler pan.
• When broiling, if meat is too close to the flame,
the fat may ignite. Trim excess fat to prevent
excessive flare-ups.
• Make sure the broiler pan is in place correctly
to reduce the possibility of grease fires.
• If you should have a grease fire in the broiler pan,
turn off oven control, and keep the oven door closed
to contain fire until it burns out.
Self-Cleaning Oven
• Clean only parts listed in this Use and Care Guide.
• Do not clean door gasket. The door gasket is
essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not
to rub, damage or move the gasket.
• Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial oven
cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any part of the oven.
Residue from oven cleaners will damage the inside
of the oven when the self-clean cycle is used.
• Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the shelves,
the broiler pan and grid and other cookware.
• Be sure to wipe up excess spillage before
starting the self-cleaning operation.
• If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions, turn
the oven off and disconnect the power supply.
Have it serviced by a qualified technician.

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

HOW DOES THIS COOKTOP COMPARE
TO YOUR OLD ONE?
Your new cooktop has gas burners. If you are used
to cooking with induction or other electric surface
units, you will notice some differences when you use
gas burners.
The best types of cookware to use, plus heat-up and
cool-down times, depend upon the type of burner or
surface unit you have.
The following chart will help you to understand the
differences between gas burner cooktops and any
other type of cooktop you may have used in the past.
Type of Cooktop
Description
How it Works
Gas Burners
Regular or sealed
gas burners.
Flames heat the pans directly. Pan flatness is not critical to cooking results, but
flat-bottomed pans provide more stability on top of the grates. Gas burners heat
the pan right away and change heat settings right away. When you turn the
control off, cooking stops right away.
Radiant
(Glass Ceramic)
Cooktop
Electric coils
under a glassceramic cooktop.
Heat travels to the glass surface and then to the cookware, so pans must be flat on
the bottom for good cooking results. The glass cooktop stays hot enough to
continue cooking after it is turned off. Remove the pan from the surface unit if
you want cooking to stop.
Induction
High frequency
induction coils
under a glass
surface.
Pans must be made of ferrous metals (metal that attracts a magnet). Heat is
produced by a magnetic circuit between the coil and the pan. Heats up right away
and changes heat settings right away, like a gas cooktop. After turning the control
off, the glass cooktop is hot from the heat of the pan, but cooking stops right away.
Electric Coil
Flattened metal
tubing containing
electric resistance
wire suspended
over a drip pan.
Heats by direct contact with the pan and by heating the air under the pan. For best
cooking results, use good quality pans. Electric coils are more forgiving of
warped pans than radiant or solid disks. Heats up quickly but does not change
heat settings as quickly as gas or induction. Electric coils stay hot enough to
continue cooking for a short time after they are turned off.
Solid Disk
Solid cast iron
disk sealed to the
cooktop surface.
Heats by direct contact with the pan, so pans must be flat on the bottom for good
cooking results. Heats up and cools down more slowly than electric coils. The
disk stays hot enough to continue cooking after it is turned off. Remove the pan
from the solid disk if you want the cooking to stop.

SURFACE COOKING
Surface Burner Controls
Before Lighting a Burner
• If drip pans are supplied with your range,
they should be used at all times.
• Make sure all grates on the range are in place
before using any burner.
On ranges with sealed burners:
• The smaller burner (right rear position) will give
the best simmer results. It offers precise cooking
performance for delicate foods, such as sauces or
foods which need to cook over low heat for a
long time. It can be turned down to a very low
simmer setting.
• The right front burner is higher powered than the
others and will bring liquids to a boil quicker.
To Light a Surface Burner
Push the control knob in
and turn it to LITE. You
will hear a little ‘‘clicking’’
noise—the sound of the electric
spark igniting the burner.
Turn the knob to adjust the
flame size. If the knob stays at
LITE, it will continue to click.
Cooktop Comparison
The knobs that turn the surface burners on and off are
located on the control panel in front of the burners.
The two knobs on the left control the left front and
left rear burners. The two knobs on the right control
the right front and right rear burners.
When one burner is turned to LITE, all the burners
spark. Do not attempt to disassemble or clean around
any burner while another burner is on. An electric
shock may result, which could cause you to knock
over hot cookware.
In case of 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
Surface Cooking
• 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.
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.
(continued next page)

SURFACE COOKING
(continued)
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 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.
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.

To reset the clock, press the CLOCK pad. Enter the
correct time of day by pressing the + or – pad. Press
the START pad.
OVEN CONTROL, CLOCK AND TIMER
Tones While Setting the Control
Preheat Notification Tone
When you press a touch pad you will hear a beep.
This beep will let you know you have placed enough
pressure on the pad to activate it.
When you set an oven temperature the oven
automatically starts to heat. When the temperature
inside the oven reaches your set temperature a tone will
sound to let you know to place the food in the oven.
Attention Tone
This tone will sound if you set an invalid function or try to set an additional
function. The tone can be quickly identified by watching the display messages.
USING YOUR OVEN
Before Using Your Oven
Be sure you understand how to set the controls
properly. Practice removing and replacing the shelves
while the oven is cool. Read the information and tips
on the following pages. Keep this guide handy where
you can refer to it, especially during the first weeks of
using your new range.
Oven Control, Clock and Timer
The control has a series of tones that will sound at different times. These
tones may sound while you set the control for an oven function or at the
end of the oven function. They will also alert you when an incorrect time
or temperature has been entered or if there is a problem with the oven.
Electric Ignition
Power Outage
Oven Moisture
Fluorescent Night 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 upper control panel to turn
the light on and off.
Oven Light
Automatic Oven Shut Off
Use the switch on the lower control panel to turn the
light on or off.
As a safety feature, this oven will automatically shut
itself off if it has been left on for more than 12 hours.

Using Your Oven
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.
USING YOUR OVEN
(continued)
Oven Vents
The oven is vented through duct openings at the rear
of the cooktop. See the Features section. Do not block
these openings when cooking in the oven—it is
important that the flow of hot air from the oven and
fresh air to the oven burners be uninterrupted.
• The vent openings and
nearby surfaces may
become hot. Do not
touch them.
• Do not leave plastic
Vent appearance and location vary
items on the cooktop—
they may melt if left too
close to the vent.
• Handles of pots and pans on the cooktop may
become hot if left too close to the vent.
• Metal items will become very hot if they are left
on the cooktop and could cause burns.
• Do not leave any items on the cooktop. The hot air
from the vent may ignite flammable items and will
increase pressure in closed containers, which may
cause them to burst.
Oven Shelves
The shelves are designed with stop-locks so when
placed correctly on the shelf supports, they will
stop before coming completely out of the oven and
will not tilt when you are removing food from them
or placing food on them.
When placing cookware on a shelf, pull the shelf out
to the bump on the shelf support. Place the cookware
on the shelf, then slide the shelf back into the oven.
This will eliminate reaching into the hot oven.
To remove a shelf from the oven, pull it toward you,
tilt the front end upward and pull the shelf out.
To replace, place the shelf on the shelf support with
the stop-locks (curved extension of the shelf) facing
up and toward the rear of the oven. Tilt up the front
and push the shelf toward the back of the oven until it
goes past the bump on the shelf support. Then lower
the front of the shelf and push it all the way back.
Bump
Shelf Positions
The oven has five shelf supports for baking,
roasting and broiling identified in this illustration
as A (bottom), B, C, D and E (top). It also has a special
low shelf position (R) for roasting extra
large items, such as a large turkey—the shelf is not
designed to slide out at this position. Shelf positions
for cooking are suggested in the Baking, Roasting
and Broiling sections.

Yourself instructions on how to adjust the thermostat.
How to Set Your Range for Baking
To avoid possible burns, place shelves in the correct
position before you turn the oven on.
1. Press the BAKE pad.
2. Press the + or – pad until the desired temperature
is displayed.
The oven will start automatically. The word “ON” and
“100°” will be displayed. As the oven heats up, the
display will show the changing temperature. When the
oven reaches the temperature you set, a tone will sound.
3. Press the CLEAR/OFF pad when baking is finished
and then remove the food from the oven.
To change the oven temperature during BAKE
cycle, press the BAKE pad and then the + or – pad
to get the new temperature.
Using Your Oven
Do not lock the oven door with the latch during
baking. The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
Your oven temperature is controlled using the latest
technology oven control systems. It is recommended
that you operate your new oven for a number of
weeks to become familiar with its performance.
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
Type of Food
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 2 to 4 cm (1 to 11⁄2″) 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
When baking cookies, flat cookie sheets (without
sides) produce better-looking cookies. Cookies baked
in a jelly roll pan (short sides all around) may have
darker edges and pale or light browning may occur.
Cookies can be baked on several shelves at the same
time but browning may be uneven because of reduced
air circulation.
Do not use a cookie sheet so large that it touches
the walls or the door of the oven.
Aluminum Foil
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
centimeters below the food.
Do not put aluminum foil on the oven bottom.
16
Pies
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.
Cakes
Baking
For best browning when baking several 20.3 cm or
22.9 cm (8″ or 9″) cakes, stagger them so one pan is
not directly above another. Warped or bent pans will
cause uneven baking results and poorly shaped
products. A cake baked in a pan larger than the recipe
recommends will usually be crisper, thinner and drier
than it should be. If baked in a pan smaller than
recommended, it may be undercooked and batter may
overflow.
Baking Pans
Use the proper baking pan. The type of finish on the
pan determines the amount of browning that will occur.
• Dark, rough or dull pans absorb heat resulting in a
browner, crisper crust. Use this type for pies.
• Shiny, bright and smooth pans reflect heat, resulting
in a lighter, more delicate browning. Cakes and
cookies require this type of pan.
• Glass baking dishes also absorb heat. When baking
in glass baking dishes, the temperature may need to
be reduced by 12°C. (25°F.).
• If you are using dark non-stick pans, you may find
that you need to reduce the oven temperature 12°C.
(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.
17
TIMED BAKING
How to Time Bake
Do not lock the oven door with the latch during
Timed Baking. The latch is used for self-cleaning
only.
The oven control allows you to turn the oven on or
off automatically at specific times that you set.

off automatically.
6. Press the CLEAR/OFF pad to clear the
display if necessary. Remove the food
from the oven. Remember, even though
the oven shuts off automatically, foods
continue cooking after the controls are off.
NOTE: Foods that spoil easily, such as milk, eggs, fish,
stuffings, poultry and pork, should not be allowed to sit
for more than one hour before or after cooking. Room
temperature promotes the growth of harmful bacteria.
Be sure that the oven light is off because heat from the
bulb will speed harmful bacteria growth.

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 11–22°C. (20–40°F.).
To Adjust the Thermostat
1. Press the BAKE and BROIL HI/LO pads at the same
time for 2 seconds until the display shows “SF.”
2. Press the BAKE pad. A two digit number shows in
the display.
3. The oven temperature can be adjusted up to (+) 20°C.
(35°F.) hotter or (–) 20°C. (35°F.) cooler. Press the + pad
to increase the temperature in 1 degree increments.
4. Press the – pad to decrease the temperature in 1 degree
increments.
4. When you have made the adjustment, press the START
pad to go back to the time of day display. Use your oven
as you would normally.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling or self-cleaning
temperatures. It will be retained in memory after a power failure.
The Type of Margarine Will Affect
Baking Performance
Most recipes for baking have been developed using
high fat products such as butter or margarine (80%
fat). If you decrease the fat, the recipe may not give
the same results as with a higher fat product.
Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries,
cookies or candies are made with low fat spreads.
The lower the fat content of a spread product, the
more noticeable these differences become.
20
Federal standards require products labeled
“margarine” to contain at least 80% fat by weight.
Low fat spreads, on the other hand, contain less fat
and more water. The high moisture content of these
spreads affect the texture and flavor of baked goods.
For best results with your old favorite recipes, use
margarine, butter or stick spreads containing at least
70% vegetable oil.
ROASTING
Roasting is really a baking procedure used for meats.
Therefore, oven controls are set for Baking or Timed
Baking. (You may hear a slight clicking sound,
indicating the oven is working properly.) Timed
Baking will turn the oven on and off automatically.
Most meats continue to cook slightly while standing,
after being removed from the oven. The standing time
recommended for roasts is 10 to 20 minutes. This
allows roasts to firm up and makes them easier to
carve. The internal temperature will rise about 3°C. to
8°C. (5° to 10°F.); to compensate for the temperature
rise, if desired, remove the roast from oven sooner
[3°C. to 8°C. (5° to 10°F.) less than the temperature 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.
1. Position the oven
at shelf (B)
position for small
size roast [1.3 to
2.3 kg (3 to 5 lbs.)]
and at (R) position
for larger roasts.
4. Press the + or – pad until the desired temperature
is displayed.
The oven will start automatically. The word “ON”
and “100°” will be displayed. As the oven heats up,
the display will show the changing temperature. When
the oven reaches the temperature you set, a tone will
sound.
5. Press the CLEAR/OFF pad when roasting
is finished and then remove the food from the
oven.

2. Check the weight of the meat. Place the meat fat-sideup, or poultry breast-side-up, on roasting grid in a
shallow pan. The melting fat will baste the meat. Select
a pan as close to the size of the meat as possible. (The
broiler pan with grid is a good pan for this.)
3. Press the BAKE pad.
Adjust the Oven Thermostat
Do not lock the oven door with the door latch
during roasting. This is used for self-cleaning only.
Roasting is cooking by dry heat. Tender meat or
poultry can be roasted uncovered in your oven.
Roasting temperatures, which should be low and
steady, keep spattering to a minimum.
The oven has a
E
special low shelf (R)
D
position just above
the oven bottom.
C
Use it when extra
B
cooking space is
A
needed, for example,
R
when roasting a
large turkey. The
shelf is not designed to slide out at this position.
To change the oven temperature during the
roasting cycle, press the BAKE pad and then
the + or – pad to get the new temperature.
Dual Shelf Cooking
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.
This allows more than one food to be cooked at the
same time. For example: While roasting a 10 kg
(20-lb.) turkey on shelf (R), a second shelf 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.

Questions
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 3.6 kg (8 lbs.), check with thermometer
at half-hour 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.

BROILING
1. If the meat has fat or gristle around the edge, cut
vertical slashes through both about 5 cm (2″) apart.
If desired, the fat may be trimmed, leaving layer
about 3 mm (1/8″) thick.
2. Place the meat on the broiler grid on the broiler pan
which comes with the range. Always use the grid so
the fat drips into the broiler pan; otherwise the
juices may become hot enough to catch on fire.
3. Position the shelf on the recommended shelf
position as suggested in the Broiling Guide.
4. Close the oven door.
The oven door must be closed during broiling.
Turn the food only once during broiling. Time the
foods for the first side according to the Broiling
Guide. Turn the food, then use the times given for the
second side as a guide to the preferred doneness.
Roasting Guide
Do not lock the oven door with the latch during
broiling. The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
Broiling is cooking food by direct heat from above the
food. Most fish and tender cuts of meat can be
broiled. Follow these directions to keep spattering and
smoking to a minimum.
5. Press the BROIL HI/LO pad.
6. Press the BROIL HI/LO pad again
(alternates between LO Broil and
HI Broil).
7. Press the START pad.
8. When broiling is completed, press the
CLEAR/OFF pad. Serve the food
immediately, and leave the pan outside
the oven to cool during the meal for
easiest cleaning.
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.
23
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 the 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 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 next lowest shelf position and increasing cooking
time given in this guide 11⁄2 times per side.
The oven door 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 the fat evenly around
the outside edges of the meat. To slash, cut
crosswise through the outer fat surface just to the
edge of the meat. Use tongs to turn the meat over to
prevent piercing the meat and losing the juices.
• Use LO Broil to cook foods such as poultry or thick
pork chops thoroughly without over browning them.

OPERATING THE SELF-CLEANING OVEN
Normal Cleaning Time: 4 hours
Before a Clean Cycle
We recommend venting with an open window
or using a ventilation fan or hood during the first
self-clean cycle.
1. Remove the broiler pan, broiler grid, all cookware
and any aluminum foil from the oven—they cannot
withstand the high cleaning temperatures.
NOTE: Take the shelves out of the oven before
you begin the self-clean cycle.
2. Wipe up heavy soil on the oven bottom. If you
use soap, rinse thoroughly before self-cleaning
to prevent staining.

3. Clean spatters or spills on the oven front frame, and
the oven door outside the gasket with a dampened
cloth. The oven front frame and the oven door outside
the gasket do not get cleaned by the self-clean cycle.
On these areas use detergent and hot water or a soapfilled steel wool pad. Rinse well with a vinegar and
water solution. This will help prevent a brown residue
from forming when the oven is heated. Buff these
areas with a dry cloth. Do not clean the gasket.
Clean the top, sides and outside front of the oven
door with soap and water. Do not use abrasives or
oven cleaners.
Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in place.
Do not rub or clean the door gasket—
the fiberglass material of the gasket has an
extremely low resistance to abrasion. An intact
and well-fitting oven door gasket is essential for
energy-efficient oven operation and good baking
results. If you notice the gasket becoming worn,
frayed or damaged in any way or if it has become
displaced on the door, you should have it replaced.
4. Close the door and make sure the oven light is off.
If the oven light is not turned off, the life of the bulb
will be shortened or it may burn out immediately.
CAUTION: The grates and drip pans
(on some models) should never be cleaned in
the self-cleaning oven.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners or oven
protectors in or near the self-cleaning oven.
A combination of any of these products plus the
high clean cycle temperatures may damage the
porcelain finish of the oven.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is
extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during
the self-cleaning cycle of any oven. Move birds to
another well ventilated room.

Questions and Answers
Q. If my oven clock is not set to the correct time of
day, can I still self-clean my oven?
A. If the clock is not set to the correct time of day you
will not be able to set a delay clean to end at a
specific time.
Q. Can I use commercial oven cleaners on any part
of my self-cleaning oven?
A. No cleaners or coatings should be used around any
part of this oven. If you do use them and do not
thoroughly rinse the oven with water, wiping it
absolutely clean afterwards, the residue can scar
the oven surface and damage metal parts the next
time the oven is automatically cleaned.
Q. What should I do if excessive smoking occurs
during cleaning?
A. This is caused by excessive soil. Press the
CLEAR/OFF pad. Open the windows to rid the
room of smoke. Wait until the oven has cooled
and the word “LOCK” is off in the display. Wipe
up the excess soil and reset the clean cycle.
Q. Is the “crackling” or “popping” sound I hear
during cleaning normal?
A. Yes. This is the sound of the metal heating and
cooling during both the cooking and cleaning
functions.
28
Q. Should there be any odor during the cleaning?
A. Yes, there will be an odor during the first few
cleanings. Failure to wipe out excessive soil might
also cause a strong odor when cleaning.
Q. What causes the hair-like lines on the enameled
surface of my oven?
A. This is a normal condition, resulting from heating
and cooling during cleaning. These lines do not
affect how your oven performs.
Q. Why do I have ash left in my oven after
cleaning?
A. Some types of soil will leave a deposit which is ash.
It can be removed with a damp sponge or cloth.
Q. Can I cook food on the cooktop while the oven
is self-cleaning?
A. Yes. While the oven is self-cleaning, you can use
the cooktop just as you normally do.
Q. The word “door” appeared in the display when
I selected the Clean Cycle. What’s wrong?
A. The door latch handle must be moved all the way
to the right. Move the latch handle and cleaning
will start.

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.
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.
You should clean the surface burners routinely,
especially after bad spillovers, which could clog
these openings.
To remove burned-on food, soak the burner heads
in a solution of mild liquid detergent and hot water
for 20-30 minutes. For more stubborn stains, use a
toothbrush.
Before putting the burner head back, shake out
excess water and then dry it thoroughly by setting
it in a warm oven for 30 minutes.
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.
Operating the Self-Cleaning Oven
Proper care and cleaning are important so your range

The holes in the surface burners of your range must
be kept clean at all times for proper ignition and an
even, unhampered flame.
Drip Pans (on some models)
Remove the grates and lift out the drip pans.
Drip pans can be cleaned in dishwasher or by hand.
To get rid of burned-on food, place them in a
covered container (or plastic bag) with 62 ml (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
self-cleaning oven.
30
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.
Burner Grates
To get rid of burned-on food, place the grates
in a covered container (or plastic bag) with 62 ml
(1/4 cup) ammonia, for approximately 12 hours or
overnight, to loosen the soil. Let sit overnight
(or approximately 12 hours), then scrub with a
soap-filled scouring pad if necessary. Rinse grates
thoroughly and dry completely before replacing
them on the range top.
Although they’re durable, the grates will gradually
lose their shine, regardless of the best care you can
give them. This is due to their continual exposure to
high temperatures. You will notice this sooner with
lighter color grates.
Do not operate a burner for an extended period of
time without cookware on the grate. The finish on
the grate may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.
CAUTION: Do not clean the grates in a
dishwasher or in a self-cleaning oven.
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.
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.
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.
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. 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.
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.
Brushed Chrome Cooktop (on some models)
Clean the brushed chrome top with warm, soapy water or Bon Ami® brand
cleanser and immediately dry it with a clean, soft cloth. Take care to dry the
surface following the “grain.”
To help prevent finger marks after cleaning, spread a thin film of baby oil
on the surface. Wipe away excess oil with a clean, soft cloth.
31
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)
Lift-Off Oven Door
The oven door is removable, but
it is heavy. You may need help
removing and replacing the door.
To remove the door, open it a
few inches to the special stop
position that will hold the door
open. Grasp firmly on each side
and lift the door straight up and
off the hinges.
NOTE: Be careful not to place
hands between the hinge and the oven door frame as
the hinge could snap back and pinch fingers.
To replace the door, make sure the hinges are in the
special stop position. Position the slots in the bottom
of the door squarely over the hinges. Then lower the
door slowly and evenly over both hinges at the same
time. If the hinges snap back against the oven frame,
pull them back out.
TO CLEAN THE DOOR:
(Do not immerse the door in water.)
Inside of the door:
• Because the area inside the gasket is cleaned during
the self-clean cycle, you do not need to clean this
by hand. Any soap left on the liner causes additional
stains when the oven is heated.
• The area outside the gasket can be cleaned with
a soap-filled steel wool or plastic pad.
Broiler Pan and Grid
Inside Gasket
Gasket
Outside Gasket
Outside of the door:
• Use soap and water to thoroughly clean the top,
sides and front of the oven door. Rinse well. You
may also use a glass cleaner to clean the glass on
the outside of the door.
• Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato sauces
and basting materials containing acids may cause
discoloration and should be wiped up immediately.
When the surface is cool, clean and rinse.
• Do not use oven cleaners, cleansing powders or
harsh abrasives such as steel wool pads on the
outside of the door.
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 soapfilled or plastic scouring pad.
Pan
Oven Shelves
Clean the shelves with an abrasive cleanser or steel
wool. After cleaning, rinse the shelves with clean
water and dry with a clean cloth.
NOTE: Take the shelves out of the oven before you
begin the self-clean cycle.
32
• Do not rub or clean the door gasket—the
fiberglass material of the gasket has an extremely
low resistance to abrasion. An intact and wellfitting oven door gasket is essential for energyefficient oven operation and good baking results.
If you notice the gasket becoming worn, frayed or
damaged in any way or if it has become displaced
on the door, you should have it replaced.
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 Light Replacement (on some models )
CAUTION: Before replacing your oven light bulb,
disconnect the electrical power to the range at the
main fuse or circuit breaker panel. Be sure to let
the light cover and bulb cool completely.
The oven light bulb is covered with a removable
glass cover that is held in place with a bail-shaped
wire. Remove the oven door, if desired, to reach
cover easily.
To remove:
1. Hold a hand under the
cover so it doesn’t fall
when released. With
fingers of the same
hand, firmly push back
the wire cover holder.
Lift off the cover.
Wire cover holder
DO NOT REMOVE ANY SCREWS TO
REMOVE COVER.
2. Do not touch hot bulb with a wet cloth. Replace
bulb with a 40-watt household appliance bulb.
To replace cover:
1. Place it into the groove of the light receptacle. Pull
the wire forward to the center of the cover until it
snaps into place. When in place, the wire holds the
cover firmly. Be certain the wire is in the
depression in the center of the cover.
2. Connect electrical power to the range.
It’s a good idea to wipe the control panel after each
use of the oven. Clean with mild soap and water or
vinegar and water, rinse with clean water and polish
dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use abrasive cleansers, strong liquid cleaners,
plastic scouring pads or oven cleaners on the control
panel—they will damage the finish. A 50/50 solution
of vinegar and hot water works well.
The control knobs may
be removed for easier
cleaning. To remove a
knob, pull it straight off
the stem. If knob is
difficult to remove, place
a towel or dishcloth
between the knob and control panel and pull gently.
Wash the knobs in soap and water or a vinegar
and hot water solution.
Metal parts can be cleaned with soap and water. Do
not use steel wool, abrasives, ammonia, acids or
commercial oven cleaner. Dry with a soft cloth.
Removable Storage Drawer (on some models)
The storage drawer is a good place to store cookware
and bakeware. Do not store plastics and flammable
material in the drawer.
The storage drawer may be removed for cleaning
under the range. Clean the storage drawer with a
damp cloth or sponge. Never use harsh abrasives or
scouring pads.
To remove 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.

CARE AND CLEANING
(continued)
Oven Air Vents
Never block the vents (air openings) of the range.
They provide the air inlet and outlet that are necessary
for the range to operate properly with correct
combustion. Air openings are located at the rear of the
cooktop, at the top and bottom of the oven door, and at
the bottom of the range, under the kick panel or
storage drawer (depending on the model).
Vent appearance and location vary
Lift-up Cooktop (on models with standard twin burners)
Clean the area under the cooktop often. Built-up soil,
especially grease, may catch on fire.
To make cleaning easier, the cooktop may be lifted up.
To raise the cooktop:
1. Be sure the burners are turned off.
2. Remove the grates.
3. Grasp the two front burner wells and lift up.
Some models have dual
support rods that will hold
the cooktop up while you
clean underneath it.
After cleaning under the
cooktop with hot, soapy
water and a clean cloth,
lower the cooktop. Be
careful not to pinch your fingers.
Removable Kick Panel (on some models)
The kick panel may be removed for cleaning under
the range.
To remove, lift up the
bottom of the panel slightly
to disengage the panel from
the 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

Z223.1, latest edition. In Canada, installation
must conform with the current Natural Gas
Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.1 or the
current Propane Installation Code, CAN/CGAB149.2, and with local codes where applicable.
This range has been design-certified by the
American Gas Association according to ANSI
Z21.1, latest edition and Canadian Gas Association
according to CAN/CGA-1.1, latest edition. As
with any appliance using gas and generating heat,
there are certain safety precautions you should
follow. You will find these precautions in the
Important Safety Instructions in the front of this
guide. Read them carefully.
• Have your range installed by a qualified
installer or service technician.
• Your range must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes or, in the absence of
local codes, in accordance with the National
Electrical Code (ANSI/NFPA 70, latest edition).
In Canada, electrical grounding must be in
accordance with the current CSA C22.1
Canadian Electrical Code Part 1 and/or local
codes. See Electrical Connections in this section.
• Before installing your range on linoleum or any
other synthetic floor covering, make sure the
floor covering can withstand 82°C. (180°F.)
without shrinking, warping or discoloring. Do not
install the range over carpeting unless a sheet of
6 mm (1/4″) 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 93°C. (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 12.7 cm (5″) beyond the front of
the cabinets.
• The ventilating hood must be constructed of
sheet metal not less than .31 mm (0.0122″) thick.
Install above the cooktop with a clearance of not
less than 6 mm (1/4″) between the hood and the
underside of the combustible material or metal
cabinet. The hood must be at least as wide as
the appliance and centered over the appliance.
Clearance between the cooking surface and the
ventilation hood surface MUST NEVER BE
LESS THAN 61 cm (24″).
36
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 76.2 cm (30″) between
the cooking surface and the bottom of
unprotected cabinets.
• If a 76.2 cm (30″) 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 6 mm (1/4″) insulating millboard
covered with sheet metal not less than .31 mm
(0.0122″) thick.
• Clearance between the cooking surface and
protected cabinets MUST NEVER BE LESS
THAN 61 cm (24″). The vertical distance from
the plane of the cooking surface to the bottom of
adjacent overhead cabinets extending closer than
2.5 cm (1″) to the plane of the range sides must
not be less than 45.7 cm (18″). (See Dimensions
and Clearances illustration in this section.)
• 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.
WARNING
All ranges can tip and injury could
result. To prevent accidental tipping
of the range, attach an approved AntiTip 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.
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.
• Do not use oven for a storage area. Items
stored in the oven can ignite.
• Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
GENERAL
MODEL AND SERIAL NUMBER LOCATION
• See Dimensions and Clearances in this section
for all rough-in and spacing dimensions. These
dimensions must be met for safe use of your range.
The location of the electrical outlet and pipe opening
(see Gas Pipe and Electric Outlet Locations) may
be adjusted to meet specific requirements.
• The range may be placed with 0 cm (0″)
clearance (flush) at the back wall and side walls
of the range.
Depending on your range, you’ll find the model
and serial numbers on a label on the front frame of
the range, behind the storage drawer or kick panel.
LOCATION
Do not locate the range where it may be subject
to strong drafts. Any openings in the floor or wall
behind the range should be sealed. Make sure
the openings around the base of the range that
supply fresh air for combustion and ventilation
are not obstructed by carpeting or woodwork.
PROTECT YOUR FLOOR
Your range, like many other household items, is
heavy and can settle into soft floor coverings
such as cushioned vinyl or carpeting. Use care
when moving the range on this type of flooring.
It is recommended that the following simple and
inexpensive instructions be followed to protect
your floor.
The range should be installed on a sheet of plywood
(or similar material). When the floor covering ends
at the front of the range, the area that the range
will rest on should be built up with plywood to
the same level or higher than the floor covering.
This will allow the range to be moved for cleaning
or servicing. Also, make sure your floor covering
will withstand 82°C. (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
93°C. (200°F.)] by the range. (See the Important
Safety Instructions section of the Installation
Instructions.)
TOOLS YOU WILL NEED
• Phillips and flat-blade screwdrivers
• Pencil and ruler
• Two pipe wrenches (one for backup)
• 3.5 cm (13⁄8″) open-end or adjustable wrench
• Nut drivers or wrenches: 5 mm (3/16″)
and 6 mm (1/4″)
ADDITIONAL MATERIALS YOU MAY NEED
• Gas line shut-off valve.
• Pipe joint sealant or UL-approved pipe thread
tape with Teflon* that resists action of butane gas.
• Flexible metal appliance connector [1.3 cm
(1/2″) I.D.]. A 1.5 m (5′) 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 [1.9 cm (3/4″) or 1.3 cm (1/2″) NPT
x 1.3 cm (1/2″) I.D.].
• Flare union adapter for connection to pressure
regulator on range [1.3 cm (1/2″) NPT x 1.3 cm
(1/2″) I.D.].
*Teflon: Registered trademark of DuPont
PREPARATION
• Remove all tape and packaging. Lift up the
cooktop (on models with standard twin burners)
and remove any packing material under it. Make
sure the standard twin burners are properly
seated and level.
• Take the accessory pack out of the oven.
• Check to be sure that no range parts have
come loose during shipping.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
(continued)
1 PROVIDE ADEQUATE GAS SUPPLY
Your range is designed to operate at a pressure of
25.4 cm (10″) of water column on butane gas.
Make sure you are supplying your range with the
type of gas for which it is designed.
If you decide to use this range on a different type
of gas, conversion adjustments must be made by a
service technician or other qualified person before
attempting to operate the range on that gas.
For proper operation, the pressure of butane gas
supplied to the regulator must be between 25.4 cm
(10″) and 33 cm (13″) of water column. When
checking for proper operation of the regulator, the
inlet pressure must be at least 2.5 cm (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. A flexible metal appliance connector used to
connect the range to the gas supply line should
have an I.D. of 1.3 cm (1/2″) and be 1.5 m (5′) in
length for ease of installation. In Canada, flexible
connectors must be single wall metal connectors
no longer than 1.8 m (6′) in length.
2 CONNECT THE RANGE TO GAS
Shut off the main gas supply valve before
disconnecting the old range and leave it off until
new hook-up has been completed. Don’t forget
to relight the pilot on other gas appliances when
you turn the gas back on.
Because hard piping restricts movement of the
range, the use of an A.G.A.-certified flexible
metal appliance connector is recommended
unless local codes require a hard-piped connection.
Never use an old connector when installing a
new range. If the hard piping method is used,
you must carefully align the pipe; the range
cannot be moved after the connection is made.
To prevent gas leaks, use pipe joint compound
or wrap Teflon* pipe thread tape around all male
(external) pipe threads.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
(continued)
2 CONNECT THE RANGE TO GAS (continued)
1. Install a manual gas line shut-off valve in the
gas line in an easily accessed location outside of
the range. Make sure everyone operating the
range knows where and how to shut off the gas
supply to the range.
2. Install male 1.3 cm (1/2″) flare union adapter
to the 1.3 cm (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 1.3 cm (1/2″) flare union
adapter to the 1.3 cm (1/2″) NPT internal thread
at inlet of pressure regulator. Use a back-up
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 1.3 cm (1/2″) or 1.9 cm (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.
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

receptacle to
before use
minimize the
possibility of electric
shock hazard from this appliance.
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.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES,
CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND)
PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD.
A Usage Situations where Appliance
Power Cord will be Disconnected Infrequently.
An adapter may be used only on a 15-amp
circuit. Do not use an adapter on a 20-amp
circuit. Where local codes permit, a
TEMPORARY CONNECTION may be
made to a properly grounded two-prong wall
receptacle by the use of a UL-listed adapter,
available at most hardware stores. The larger
slot in the adapter must be aligned with the
larger slot in the wall receptacle to provide
proper polarity in the connection of the
power cord.
TEMPORARY
METHOD
(Adapter plugs
not permitted in
Canada)
Align large
prongs/slots
Ensure proper
ground and
firm connection
before use
CAUTION: Attaching the adapter ground
terminal to the wall receptacle cover screw
does not ground the appliance unless the cover
screw is metal, and not insulated, and the wall
receptacle is grounded through the house
wiring. The customer should have the circuit
checked by a qualified electrician to make sure
the receptacle is properly grounded.
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.
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.

4 SEAL THE OPENINGS
Seal any openings in the wall behind the range
and in the floor under the range when hookups
are completed.
5 CHECK IGNITION OF SURFACE BURNERS
Surface Burner Ignition
Operation of all cooktop and oven burners
should be checked after the range and gas
supply lines have been carefully checked
for leaks.
Electric Ignition Models
Select a top burner knob and simultaneously
push in and turn to LITE position. You will hear
a snapping sound indicating proper operation
of the spark module. Once the air has been
purged from the supply lines, burners should
light within 4 seconds. After burner lights,
rotate knob out of the LITE position. Try each
burner in succession until all burners have
been checked.
Quality of Flames
The combustion quality of burner flames needs
to be determined visually.
(A) Yellow flames—
Call for service
(B) Yellow tips on
outer cones—
Normal for
butane gas
If burner flames look like (A), call for service.
Normal burner flames should look like (B).
With butane gas, some yellow tipping on outer
cones is normal.
42
6 CHECK IGNITION OF OVEN BURNER
The oven is designed to operate quietly and
automatically. To operate the oven, press the
BAKE pad and then press the + pad until “350°”
appears in the display. 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.
To check ignition of the broil burner, press the
BROIL pad and then the + or – pad. After 30-90
seconds, the broil burner will ignite.
Electric ignition models require electrical
power to operate. In case of a power outage, the
oven burners on these models cannot be lit
manually with a match. Gas will not flow unless
the glow bar is hot.
If the oven is in use when a power outage occurs,
the burner will shut off and cannot be re-lit until
power is restored.
7 ADJUST BROIL AND OVEN BURNER AIR
ADJUSTMENT SHUTTERS IF NECESSARY
Air adjustment shutters for the top and bottom
burners regulate the flow of air to the flames.
Air Adjustment
Shutter
The flames for the top (broil) burner should be
steady with approximately 2.5 cm (1″) blue cones
and should not extend out over the edges of the
burner baffle.
Loosen
The air adjustment shutter for the top
(broil) burner is in the center of the rear
wall of the oven.
Loosen
To determine if the bottom burner flames are
burning properly, remove the oven bottom.
Flames should have approximately 2.5 cm (1″)
blue cones with small yellow tips at the end of
outer cones. Flames should not lift off burner
ports. If lifting is observed, gradually reduce air
shutter opening until flames are stabilized.
Air Adjustment
Shutter
Oven Bottom
The shutter for the bottom (oven) burner is near
the back wall behind the storage drawer or the
kick panel (depending on the model). Remove
the drawer or panel. See the Care and Cleaning
section in this guide.
To adjust the flow of air to either burner, loosen
the Phillips head screw and rotate the shutter
toward open or closed position as needed.
To remove the oven bottom:
1. Remove the knurled screws holding down rear

IN THE DISPLAY
• Self-cleaning cycle has been selected but latch handle was not moved all the
way to the right. Move the latch handle.

the latched position. Make sure the latch is moved to the right as far as it will go.
Press the CLEAR/OFF pad. Allow the oven to cool for one hour. Put the oven
back into operation.
