4 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

WARNING

This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.

• DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF OVEN.

Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of an oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch or let clothing or other flammable materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces, such as oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors, also get hot and may cause burns if not cooled.

• Use care when opening door.

The hot air and steam that escape can cause burns to hands, face and eyes. Let hot air or steam escape from the oven before removing or replacing food in the oven.

• Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the manual. All other servicing should be performed by a qualified technician.

• Do not use harsh etching, abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven door glass since they can scratch the surface. Scratches may cause the glass to shatter.

WARNING

If the door glass, cooktop glass, surface, or oven heating unit of the range are damaged, discontinue use of the range and call for service.

• Do not operate the oven without the charcoal heater mesh.

• Do not use plastic to cover food. Use foil or oven-safe lids only.

• 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.

• Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom, or any other part of the oven with aluminum foil or any other material. Doing so will disrupt heat distribution, produce poor baking results and cause permanent damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil will melt to the interior surface of the oven)

• Never attempt to dry a pet in the oven.

• Never use your appliance for warming or heating the room.

• Always use pot holders or oven mitts when removing food from the oven or the surface element. Cookware will be hot. Use only dry pot holders . Moist or damp pot holders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let the pot holder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth to remove food.

• Do not heat unopened food containers.

burst which may result in injury.

Pressure in the containers may cause them to

• To eliminate the risk of burns or fire by reaching over heated surface units, cabinet storage space located above the surface units should be avoided. If cabinet storage is to be provided, the risk can be reduced by installing a range hood that projects horizontally a minimum of 5 inches beyond the bottom of the cabinets.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

FLAMMABLE MATERIALS

WARNING

Be certain that all packing materials are removed from the appliance before operating.

Keep plastic, clothes, paper, and other flammable materials away from parts of the appliance that may become hot.

5

• Do not store or use flammable material in the oven or near or on the cooktop. Flammable materials include paper, plastic, pot holders, linens, wall coverings, curtains, and gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids such as grease or cooking oil. These materials can be ignited when the oven and cooktop are in use.

• Wear proper apparel.

Do not wear loose-fitting or hanging garments, which may ignite if they contact hot surfaces, and cause severe burns.

• Do not use the oven for drying clothes. Only use the oven for its intended purpose.

• If a cabinet storage is provided directly above cooking surface, place items that are not frequently used and can be safely stored in an area subjected to heat. Temperatures may be unsafe for volatile items such as flammable liquids, cleaners or aerosol sprays.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY

CAUTION

Be certain that all packing materials are removed from the appliance before operating.

Keep plastic, clothes, paper, and other flammable materials away from parts of the appliance that may become hot.

• Always disconnect power from the appliance before servicing.

• Do not use aluminum foil or any other material to line the oven bottom.

Improper installation of these liners may result in a risk of electric shock or fire.

• Do not allow aluminum foil or the temperature probe to contact heating elements.

WARNING

Before replacing the oven light bulb, switch off the electrical power to the oven at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel. Failure to do so can result in severe personal injury, death, or electrical shock.

DEEP FAT FRYER

• Use extreme caution when moving or disposing of hot grease.

• Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.

• If frying combinations of oils and fats, stir them together before heating.

• Use a deep fat thermometer, if 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 with too much fat can cause spillovers when food is added.

6 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

CHILD SAFETY

• Do not touch the hot surface between the bottom of the oven door and the top of the drawer on the front of the oven while the oven is in operation. The surface becomes hot

• and can cause burns and other injury.

Do not leave small children unattended near the oven.

WARNING

Do not leave children alone or unsupervised near the appliance when it is in use or is still hot. Children should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance as they could be injured or burned.

CAUTION

Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets above a range or on the back guard of a range – children climbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.

• Never let a child hang on the oven door.

• Do not allow children to crawl into the oven.

• Let hot utensils cool in a safe place, out of reach of small children.

• Children should not be allowed to play with controls or other parts of the appliance.

GLASS-CERAMIC COOKING SURFACE

• Surface units may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near surface units may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE

UNITS OR AREAS NEAR UNITS or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface units or areas near units until they have had sufficient time to cool. This includes the cooktop and the area above the oven door.

• Do not cook on a broken cooktop.

If the cooktop is broken, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a

• qualified technician immediately.

Do not use the glass cooktop surface as a cutting board.

• Do not place or store items that can melt or catch fire on the glass cooktop, even when it is not being used.

• Choose proper burner size.

For smaller pots and pans, use the smaller heating elements. For larger pots and pans, use the larger heating elements. Select pans that

• Glazed cookware.

Only certain types of glass, glass-ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed cookware are suitable for range-top service without breaking due to the

• have flat bottoms large enough to cover the heating elements. Using undersized pans exposes a portion of the heating element to direct contact and may result in clothing burning.

sudden change in temperature.

Never cook directly on the glass. Always use cookware.

• Always turn the surface units off before removing cookware.

• Turn cookware handles inward so they don't extend over adjacent surface units.

This reduces the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to

• unintentional contact with the cookware.

Immediately clean spills on the cooking area to prevent a tough cleaning chore later.

• Some cleaners can produce dangerous fumes if applied to a hot surface.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS 7

• Always place the pan in the center of the surface unit you are cooking on. Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings.

Proper contact of cookware to burner also will improve efficiency. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spills that may catch on fire.

• Clean cooktop with caution.

Do not use sponges or cloth to wipe spills on a hot cooking area. Use a proper metal scraper. If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, it can cause steam burns. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.

• Do not turn surface units on before placing cookware.

• Do not store heavy items above the cooktop surface that could fall and damage it.

• Do not place aluminum foil or plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders, or plastic wrappings or any other material on the range when it is in use.

• Do not use a steel-wool pad or scrub pad or abrasive cleaning pads. They can scratch the surface.

ENERGY SAVING TIPS

• Multiple-rack cooking saves time and energy. Whenever possible, cook foods requiring the same cooking temperature together in one oven.

• For optimal performance and energy savings, follow the guides on page 31 for proper rack and pan placements.

• Match the size of the cookware to the amount of food being cooked to save energy when heating. Heating ½ quart of water requires more energy in a 3-quart pot than in a 1-quart pot.

• Use cookware with flat bottoms to provide the best contact with the cooktop surface when cooking on the glass-ceramic cooktop.

• Match the size of the cooktop burner or element to the size of the cookware in use. Using a large element for a small pan wastes heating energy, and the exposed surface of the element is a burn or fire hazard.

• Reduce energy use by cleaning light oven soils with the EasyClean ® feature instead of self-clean.

• Avoid opening the oven door more than necessary during use. This helps the oven maintain temperature, prevents unnecessary heat loss, and saves on energy use.

SAFETY DURING USE

• Do not touch the oven racks while they are hot.

• If a rack must be moved while the oven is hot, do not let the pot holder contact the hot heating element in the oven.

• Use caution with the Timed Cook or Delayed Timed Cook features. Use the automatic timer when cooking cured or frozen meats and most fruits and vegetables. Foods that can easily spoil, such as milk, eggs, fish, meat or poultry, should be chilled in the refrigerator first. Even when chilled, they should not stand in the oven for more than 1 hour before cooking begins, and should be removed promptly when cooking is complete. Eating spoiled food can result in sickness from food poisoning.

• Accessible parts may become hot when the grill is in use.

• Do not place food or cookware on the bottom of the oven cavity. Doing so will cause permanent damage to the oven bottom finish.

• Do not use water on grease fires.

Should an oven fire occur, leave the oven door closed and turn the oven off. If the fire continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use a fire extinguisher. Do not put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive and water can spread a grease fire and cause personal injury.

8 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

• Pull the oven rack to the stop-lock position when loading and unloading food from the oven. This helps prevent burns caused by touching hot surfaces of the door and oven walls.

• Do not use the oven if a heating element develops a glowing spot during use or shows other signs of damage. A glowing spot indicates the heating element may fail and present a potential burn, fire, or shock hazard. Turn the oven off immediately and have the heating element replaced by a qualified service technician.

• When using cooking or roasting bags in the oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.

SAFETY WHEN CLEANING

• Open a window or turn on a ventilation fan or hood before self-cleaning.

• If the oven is heavily soiled with oil, self-clean the oven before using the oven again. The oil could cause a fire.

• Wipe up heavy soil on the bottom of the oven before using the Self Clean function.

• Do not use oven cleaners.

Commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind should not be used in or around any part of the oven.

• Never keep pet birds in the kitchen. The health of birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes released during an oven self-clean cycle. Fumes may be harmful or fatal to birds. Move birds to a well-ventilated room.

• Clean in the self-clean cycle only parts listed in this manual. Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the broiler pan, all oven racks, the meat probe and any utensils or food from the oven.

• Important Instruction. The oven displays an F error code and sounds three long beeps during the self-cleaning process if it malfunctions in the self-clean mode. Switch off the electrical power to the main fuse or breaker and have the oven serviced by a qualified technician.

• It is normal for the cooktop of the range to become hot during a self-clean cycle.

Therefore, touching the cooktop during a self-clean cycle should be avoided.

• Never pour cold water over a hot oven for cleaning. Doing so may cause the oven to malfunction.

• Make sure oven lights are cool before cleaning.

• 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.

• If there is a fire in the oven during self-clean, turn the oven off and wait for the fire to go out. Do not force the door open. Introduction of fresh air at self-clean temperatures may lead to a burst of flame from the oven. Failure to follow this instruction may result in severe burns.

COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY

• To protect against food-borne illnesses, cook meat and poultry thoroughly. The USDA has indicated the following as safe minimum internal temperatures for consumption:

• Ground beef, veal, pork, or lamb: 160 °F

• Poultry: 165 °F

• Beef, veal, pork, or lamb: 145 °F

• Fish/seafood: 145 °F
