USING
YOUR
RANGE
Use the following chart as a guide.
.,
Fire Hazard
Do not let the burner flame extend beyond
the edge of the pan.
Turn off all controls when not cooking.
Failure to follow these instructions can
result in death or fire.
L
Your range comes with electric ignitors. Electric
ignitors automatically light the burners each time
you turn the control knobs to LIGHT.
0 Place a filled pan on the burner grate before
turning on the surface burner. Do not operate a
burner for extended periods of time without
having cookware on the grate.
0 Push in the control knob and turn it counterclockwise to the
LIGHT position. The
clicking sound is the
ignitor sparking. Make
sure the burner has lit.
0 To stop the clicking
sound after the burner
lights, turn the control
knob to the cook setting
you want. You can set
the control knob anywhere between HIGH and LOW.
NOTE: All four electric ignitors will click at the same
time. However, the burner with the control knob
turned to LIGHT is the one that will ignite.

NOTE: Do not leave empty cookware, or cookware
which has boiled dry, on a hot surface burner. The
cookware could overheat, causing damage to the
cookware or cooking product.
0 To help shorten your cooking time, use the least
amount of liquid possible.

You can manually light surface burners. Hold a lit
match near a burner and turn the control knob to
the LIGHT position. After the burner lights, turn the
control knob to the setting you want.
0 Refer to your canner manual for specific
instructions.
For up-to-date information on canning, contact your
local U.S. Government Agricultural Department
Extension Office or companies who manufacture
home canning products.
&jgjg q,;yjgjq ~&~~~&$$~~
The large diameter of most water-bath or pressure
canners combined with high heat settings for long
periods of time can cause damage to the cooktop.
To protect your range:
0 For best results, use a canner which can be
centered over the surface burner.
0 Do not place your canner on 2 surface burners
at the same time.
0 Start with hot water. This reduces the time
the control is set on high. Reduce the heat
setting to the lowest position needed to maintain
a boil or required pressure levels in a pressure
canner.
0 The pan should have a flat bottom, straight sides,
and a well-fitting lid.
0 Choose medium to heavy gauge (thickness)
cookware.
l The pan material (metal or glass) affects how quickly
and evenly the pan heats.
0 When using glass or ceramic cookware, check to
make sure it is suitable for use on surface burners.
0 To avoid tipping, make sure pots and pans are
centered on the grates.
The pan material affects how fast heat transfers from the surface cooking area through the pan material and how
evenly heat spreads over the pan bottom. Choose pans that provide the best cooking results.

Use this rack position when roasting food too large to
be placed on the first rack
position.
For proper roasting,
follow these guidelines:
0 To avoid spillage,
remove food before pulling
out the rack.
0 Tilt the rack up at the
front before pulling it over
the door.
0 Use an adequate amount of liquid in the pan (meat
juices or water) so your food does not get overdone.

Place the oven racks where you need them before
turning on the oven.
0 To move a rack, pull it out to the stop position,
raise the front edge and lift it out.
0 Be sure the rack(s) is level.
0 Use pot holders or oven mitts to protect your hands
if rack(s) must be moved while the oven is hot.
l For best performance, cook on one rack. Place
the rack so the top of the food will be centered in
the oven.
0 When cooking with two racks, arrange the racks
on the 2nd and 4th rack guides. Two sheets of
cookies may be baked if sheets are switched at
approximately three quarters of the total bake time.
Increase baking time, if necessary.
0 For best results allow 2 inches of space around
each pan and between pans and oven walls.

cooking results.
a Do not line the oven bottom with foil or other liners.
It could affect the oven surface as well as the quality/
of your baking.
0 Place tent-shaped foil loosely over meat or poultry
to slow down surface browning for long term
roasting. Remove foil for the last 30 minutes.
0 Use narrow strips of foil to shield piecrust edges if

Although your new oven is properly adjusted to
provide accurate temperatures, it may cook faster
or slower than your old oven.
If you are not satisfied with the baking/roasting
results, you can change the temperature calibration
by following the steps below.
NOTE: DO NOT measure the oven temperature with
a thermometer. Opening the oven door will lower
the oven temperature and give you an incorrect
reading. Also, the thermometer temperature reading
will change as your oven cycles.
1. Make sure the oven temperature control knob is
turned to the off position. Pull the knob straight
off and flip it over.

Times are guidelines only and may need to be adjusted to individual tastes.
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven through a
vent that is near the middle of the backguard. The vent
lets air circulate properly. Be careful not to block the

cap. Always clean the burner cap after a spillover. Keeping the burner cap clean prevents
improper ignition and an uneven flame.

burner, do not allow spills, food, cleaning
agents, or any other material to enter the gas
tube opening or burner ports.

opening for the burner to light properly. You must
keep this area free of any soil and protect it from
boilovers or spillovers. Always keep the burner
cap in place whenever a surface burner is in use.
0 Let the cook-top cool before cleaning.
0 Do not use oven cleaners, bleach, or rust
removers.
