6 Do not touch surface burners, areas near
surface burners or interior surfaces of
oven. Areas near surface burners and
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 surface
burners, areas near surface burners or
interior surfaces of oven until they have
had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces
of the range, such as the oven vent
opening, the surface near the vent
opening, the cooktop, and the oven door,
could also become hot enough to cause
burns.

l
l
l
Do not wear loose or hanging garments
when using the range. They could ignite
if they touch an open flame and you could
be burned.
Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp
potholders on hot surfaces could result in
burns from steam. Do not let potholder
touch an open flame. Do not use a towel
or bulky cloth for a potholder. It could
catch on fire.
Keep range vents unobstructed.
Do not heat unopened containers. They
could explode. The hot contents could
cause burns and container particles could
cause injury.
Do not store flammable materials on or
near the range. The fumes could create
an explosion and/or fire hazard.
Do not use the oven for storage.
Do not use aluminum foil to line area
around surface burners, oven bottom, or
any other part of the range. Use aluminum
foil only as recommended in this manual.
Never use a match or other flame to look
for a gas leak. Explosion and injury could
result.
Know where your main gas shutoff
valve is located.
When
l
using
the cooktop
Make sure the utensils you use are large
enough to contain food and avoid
boilovers and spillovers. Heavy splatterin!
or spillovers left on a range could ignite
and burn you. Pan size is especially
important in deep fat frying.
l
l
Check to be sure glass cooking utensils
are safe for use on the range. Only
certain types of glass, glass-ceramic,
ceramic, earthenware or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktops without
breaking due to the sudden change in
temperature.
Never leave surface burners unattended
at high heat settings. A boilover could
result and cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that could ignite.
l
Do not use water on grease fires. Never
pick up a flaming pan. Smother flaming
pan by covering with a well-fitted lid,
cookie sheet OI flat tray. Flaming grease
outside of pan #;an be extinguished with
baking soda or if available, a multipurpose dry them cal or foam-type
extinguisher.
Care and cleaning
l
l
Turn pan handles inward, but not over
other surface burners. This will help
reduce the chance of burns, igniting of
flammable materials, and spills due to
bumping of the pan.
Do not use decorative covers or trivets
over the surface burners.
When
l
l
using
the oven
Always position the oven rack(s) in
desired location while oven is cool.

To obtain the best cooking results possible, you must operate your range properly. This
section gives you important information for efficient and safe use 01 your range.
Using
the surface
burners
Your range is equipped with either standing
pilots or electric ignitors. Standing pilots
must be lit initially with a match following the
directions on page 11. The pilot light will
remain lit when the burners are turned off.
To turn a burner on again, just push in and
turn the control knob counterclockwise
to
LITE and the burner will light. Electric
ignitors automatically light the burners each
time the control knob is turned to LITE.
Push in the control knob and turn
counterclockwise
to the LITE position. On
electric ignitor models, the clicking sound is
the ignitor sparking. Visually check that
burner has lit.
After the burner lights, turn the control
knob to the desired setting. You can set the
control knob anywhere between HI and LO.

Burn, Fire and Explosion Hazard
. Burner flame should not extend
beyond the edge of the cooking utensil.
The flame could burn you
and cause poor cooking results.
. Be sure all control knobs are turned
to OFF when you are not cooking.
Someone could be burned or a fire
could start if a burner is accidentally
left ON.
. If the flame should go out while cooking, or if there is a strong gas odor,
turn the burners OFF. Wait five minutes for the gas odor to disappear
before relighting burner. If gas odor is
still present, see safety note on page 3.
Failure to follow these precautions
could result in explosion or fire.
Product Damage Hazard
Do not leave an empty utensil, or one
which has boiled dry, on a hot surface
burner.
The utensil could overheat and could
damage the utensil or cooking product.
Cookware
tips
No one brand of cookware is best for all
people. Knowing something about pan
materials and construction will help you select
the correct cookware for your needs.
. NOTE: For best results and greater fuel
efficiency, use only flat-bottomed cookware
in good condition.
-The pan should have straight sides and a
tight-fitting lid.
. Choose medium to heavy gauge (thickness) pans that are fairly lightweight.
*The pan material (metal or glass) affects
how fast heat transfers from the surface
burners through the pan material and how
evenly heat spreads over the pan bottom.
Choose pans that provide the best cooking
results.
. Handles should be made of a sturdy, heatresistant material and be securely attached
to the pan.
l
l
l
Pans should be easy to clean. Check to be
sure there are no crevices, rough edges or
areas where food might collect.
Be sure pans do not tip, whether they are
full or empty.
Use cookware only as it was intended to be
used. Follow pan instructions. This is very
important for glass cookware because some
should be used only in the oven. Other pans
are marked as flameware and may be used
on the surface burners.

g
Extra oven rack
(roasting
rack)
position
When roasting food too large to be placed in
oven with rack in lowest position, place rack
on bottom of oven.
For proper roasting, follow these
guidelines:
l The rack must be level.
l Use adequate
amount of liquid (meat
juices or water) so food does not get
overdone.
l Do not try to pull
rack out over door.
Rack will be at the same level as door
when door is opened.
For best air circulation
Hot air must circulate around the pans in the
oven for even heat to reach all parts of the
oven. This results in better baking.
l Place the pans so that one is not directly
over the other.
l For best results,
allow 1l/2-2 inches
(4-5 cm) of space around each pan and
between pans and oven walls. There must
be a minimum space of 1 inch (2.5 cm).
l Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at
one time.
Use the following as a guide to determine
where to place the pans:
One pan
Place in the center of the oven rack.
Two pans
Place in opposite corners of the oven rack.
Three or four pans
Place in opposite corners on each oven rack.
Stagger pans so no pan is directly over
another.

Energy
saving
tips
Although the energy used for cooking is
usually a very small percentage of the total
energy used in the home, cooking energy
can be used efficiently. Here are some tips
to help you save energy when using your
cooking product:
l
Use pans with flat bottoms, straight sides
and tight-fitting lids.
l Cook with a minimum
of liquid or fat to
help shorten cooking time.
l Preheat
pans only when recommended
and for the shortest time possible.
l Stat-l food on higher
heat settings, then
set surface burner control on low to finish
cooking.
l
Use the more efficient surface burners
instead of the oven when possible.
l
l
l
l
l
l
Turn on the surface burner only after
placing filled pan on the burner grate.
“Oven peeking” may cause heat loss,
longer cooking times and unsatisfactory
baking results. Rely on your timer to keep
track of the cooking time.
Bake cakes, pies or cookies when oven is
warm. Best time to bake is right after a
meal has been cooked in oven.
Preheat the oven no longer than
necessary.
Plan your meals for the most efficient use
of the range. When using the oven to cook
one food, try to cook the rest of the meal in
it also.
Do not preheat when broiling, roasting or
cooking items such as casseroles.
The oven vent
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven
through a vent located at rear of cooktop.
The vent is needed for air circulation. Do
not block the vent. Poor baking/roasting
will result.
Never store plastics, paper or other
items that could melt or burn near the oven
vent, or any of the surface burners.
NOTE:
Burn Hazard
When the oven is ON, pans and pan
handles left near the oven vent could
become hot enough to burn the user
and to melt plastics. Use potholders to
move pans.
15
The anti-tip
brackets
The range will not tip during normal use. However, tipping can occur if you apply too much
force or weight to the open door without the anti-tip brackets properly secured.
Personal Injury Hazard
l To reduce risk of range tipping over, secure range with properly
installed anti-tip brackets supplied with range.
l If range is moved for cleaning
or service, check that anti-tip devices
are engaged before using range.
Failure to follow the above precautions could result in personal injury.
To verify the anti-tip
are engaged:
l
l
brackets
Grasp rear of range and carefully try to tilt
forward. If anti-tip brackets are attached to
floor with screws and rear leveling legs are
positioned under brackets (one for each
rear leveling leg), range should not tilt
forward.
See Installation Instructions for further
details.

Surface
-
burners
1. Lift up the cooktop, following
the instruc-
tions above.
2. Before cleaning, remove screws that
hold each of the burners in place. The
screws prevent the burners from moving
during shipment. Remove the shipping
screws with a Phillips screwdriver, lift the
burner up, tilt it to one side at the end
closest to the ignitor and move it toward
the back of the range. This separates the
burner from the gas valve at the front of
the range, so it can be easily removed.
3. Wipe off surface burners with warm,
soapy water and a sponge after each use.
To remove cooked-on food, soak the
burners in a vinegar and water solution for
20-30 minutes. Scrub with a plastic
scrubbing pad.
4. If ports are clogged, clean with a
straight pin. DO NOT enlarge or distort
the ports. DO NOT use a toothpick to
clean the ports.
5. Before putting the burners back, dry
them thoroughly by setting them in a
warm oven for 30 minutes.
6. Replace burners, making sure they are
properly seated and level. Replace
screws.
7. Occasionally
check the burner flames
for proper size and shape as shown. A
good flame is blue in color. If flames lift off
ports, are yellow, or are noisy when
turned off, you may need to clean the
burners (see above), or call a qualified
technician for adjustment.
