surfaces units may become hot enough to cause burns, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials
contact surface units or areas near units.
GREASE
WARNING: HOT GREASE IS FLAMMABLE.
Wipe off any grease deposits on the range top and front. Do not leave containers of cooking fat around the
range. In the event of a grease fire, do not remove the pan, cover the pan to extinguish the flame.
WARNING: DO NOT DOUSE FLAME WITH WATER
Use a dry chemical type fire extinguisher if available, or sprinkle heavily with baking soda.
RANGE COOKING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND HINTS
Never reach directly into a hot oven to add or remove cooking utensils. Instead pull the grid shelf out of its
maximum projection and load or remove utensils.
Oven gloves will be necessary on utensils removal.
NEVER WEAR LOOSE FITTING OR HANGING GARMENTS WHILST USING THE RANGE.
USE ONLY DRY POTHOLDERS - Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do
not let potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bukly cloth.
Although the range itself provides gentle radiation and convected warm air currents, it MUST NOT be used to
increase space heating by leaving the insulating covers permanently raised or the oven doors left open. This

AGA ELECTRIC RANGE (EC LM - 2 OVEN & EE LM - 4 OVEN) - OWNERS MANUAL
instruction is based on safety considerations where accidents occur, as does the use of ovens for storage space.
WARNING: DO NOT HEAT A CLOSED GLASS OR METAL CONTAINER IN THE OVEN.
Pressure build-up in the container may cause it to burst and result in injury.
Use care when opening oven door - Let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food. Keep oven
ducts unobstructed.
General Safety Precautions and Hints for cooking utensils
1. 1. Ensure utensils have flat machined bases to obtain perfect contact with the hotplate.
2. 2. Ensure the correct size utensil is chosen to prevent food boil-over.
3. 3. Always turn utensil handles away from the front of the range and out of reach of small children.
RANGE ACCESSORIES
The following accessories are provided with the range:
1 Large meat tin with grill rack
1 Half size meat tin with grill rack
1 Plain oven shelf
1 Toaster
2 Grid oven shelves
1 Wire brush
THE HEAT INDICATOR
The heat indicator is above the roasting oven door and has three sections: black, silver and red. When the
indicator is on or about the black line in the silver section, the range is at the correct working temperature. The
purpose of the heat indicator is to show whether the range contains the full amount of stored heat and it should,
therefore, only be referred to first thing in the morning or after a period of several hours during which no cooking
has been done.
NOTE: IT DOES NOT INDICATE THE OVEN TEMPERATURE.
THERMOSTAT CONTROL
file:///D:/System/DATA/Dx/ds1/Us/iss1/EINS513307/EINS513307.htm (12 of 18)8/16/2006 9:18:22 AM
AGA ELECTRIC RANGE (EC LM - 2 OVEN & EE LM - 4 OVEN) - OWNERS MANUAL
To turn the range off, switch off the electricity supply at the wall.
When the range is in use, the control knob should be in the upper section of the numbered band (See Fig. 3),
with the indicator on or about the black line in the silver section of the heat indicator (see above). It may be
necessary to adjust the control knob slightly to achieve this.
Once the correct setting has been confirmed, the control will operate automatically to maintain the range at the
correct temperature and need not be adjusted.
Fig. 3 DESN 513468
SERVICING
For continued efficient and safe operation of the appliance, it is important that servicing checks are carried out at
service intervals recommended by your authorised Aga specialist.
OPERATING YOUR AGA
The following points are intended to help you during the period of change-over from your previous range to the
Aga way of life. You will also find that the Aga Book provides a very useful introduction to the range.
After your Aga has been assembled
When first used, your Aga will emit an odour for a short while. Do not worry, this is simply due to protective oil
burning off the hotplates. If the inside of the hotplate lids are wiped whilst the Aga is heating up it will avoid a film
of this oil being deposited on the inside of the lids.
file:///D:/System/DATA/Dx/ds1/Us/iss1/EINS513307/EINS513307.htm (13 of 18)8/16/2006 9:18:22 AM
AGA ELECTRIC RANGE (EC LM - 2 OVEN & EE LM - 4 OVEN) - OWNERS MANUAL
Also, condensation may occur on the top plate and front plate whilst the Aga is heating up. This should be wiped
away as soon as possible.
Beginning to cook on your Aga.
Try to cook as much as possible in the ovens - without changing your menus. This not only conserves heat but
also reduces cooking smells and condensation in the kitchen.
The roasting oven can also be used for broiling (at the top) and shallow frying (on the bottom).
Keep the insulated covers down when the hotplates are not in use so that the heat stored in the cooker is
conserved. For optimum cooking performance, use Aga cookware. They will have thick bases which give the
best contact with the hotplates.
Most Aga pans can be stacked in the simmering oven. This is especially useful for steaming vegetables and
simmering sauces.
Store the plain shelf out of the Aga. Use it cold in the roasting oven to deflect the heat from the top of the oven,
creating a more moderate oven temperature. It can also be used as a baking sheet.
The Aga Cake Baker can be used in the Aga for cakes needing over 45 minutes cooking.
A guide to Aga cooking is given on the page 14. Ask your Aga specialist for an invitation to an Aga
demonstration.
FITTING OF OVEN SHELVES
If this is the first time you have used this type of oven shelf, go through the procedure of changing it with the aid
of Figs. 4 to 7.

CLEANING AND CARING FOR YOUR AGA
REMEMBER: BE CAREFUL OF THE HOT APPLIANCE.
DO NOT USE A STEAM CLEANER TO CLEAN THIS COOKER.
DO NOT USE ABRASIVE PADS OR OVEN CLEANER.
Top Plate and Front plate
file:///D:/System/DATA/Dx/ds1/Us/iss1/EINS513307/EINS513307.htm (16 of 18)8/16/2006 9:18:22 AM
AGA ELECTRIC RANGE (EC LM - 2 OVEN & EE LM - 4 OVEN) - OWNERS MANUAL
The easiest way to clean the Aga top plate and front plate is to mop up spills as they happen. Baked-on food is
more difficult to clean but can usually be removed with proprietary vitreous enamel cleaners or mild cream
cleaners using a cloth, or, if necessary, a nylon scouring pad. If milk or fruit juice or anything containing acid, is
spilt on the Aga, wipe it up immediately.
Also clean off any condensation streaks on the front-plate around the oven doors or the vitreous enamel may be
permanently discoloured.
All that is usually needed to keep the vitreous enamelled surfaces of your Aga bright and clean is a daily rub over
with a damp soapy cloth followed immediately with a clean, dry cloth to avoid streaks.
Remember the top-plate and the stainless covers will scratch if pans or utensils are dragged across them.
Insulating Covers and Oven Doors
The linings of the insulating covers and oven doors may be cleaned with a cream cleanser or a soap
impregnated pad. Open the covers and lift off the oven doors to allow them to cool a little before cleaning. Do
not, however, immerse the doors in water as they are packed with insulating material which will be damaged by
excessive moisture.
Refer also to the Cleaning Section in the Aga Book.
Oven and Hotplates
The cast iron ovens help to keep themselves clean; they merely need to be brushed out occasionally with a longhandled stiff brush. The simmering oven may be cleaned with a damp soapy cloth.
The wire brush is provided for cleaning the hotplates and any burnt-on spills in the cast iron ovens.
DO NOT USE ANY OVEN CLEANERS.
Roasting Tins
The roasting tins should be cleaned in hot soapy water, soaking if necessary. A nylon scouring pad can also be
used. DO NOT place in the dishwasher or use other caustic cleaners.
