To Prevent Fire or Smoke Damage
Child Safety (cont.)
• Be sure all packing materials are removed from the appliance before
operating it.
• Keep area around appliance clear and free from combustible materials,
gasoline, and other flammable vapors and materials.
• If appliance is installed near a window, proper precautions should be taken
to prevent curtains from blowing over burners.
• NEVER leave any items on the rangetop. The hot air from the vent may ignite
flammable items and may increase pressure in closed containers which may
cause them to burst.
• Many aerosol-type spray cans are EXPLOSIVE when exposed to heat and
may be highly flammable. Avoid their use or storage near an appliance.
• Many plastics are vulnerable to heat. Keep plastics away from parts of the
appliance that may become warm or hot. DO NOT leave plastic items on the
rangetop as they may melt or soften if left too close to the vent or a surface
element.
• Combustible items (paper, plastic, etc.) may ignite and metallic items may
become hot and cause burns. DO NOT pour spirits over hot foods. DO NOT
leave oven unsupervised when drying herbs, breads, mushrooms, etc; fire
hazard.
• Children must be taught that the appliance and utensils in it can be hot.
Let hot utensils cool in a safe place, out of reach of small children. Children
should be taught that an appliance is not a toy. Children should not be
allowed to play with controls or other parts of the appliance.
In Case of Fire
Turn off appliance and ventilating hood to avoid spreading the flame. Extinguish
flame then turn on hood to remove smoke and odor.
• Cooking Surface: Smother fire or flame in a pan with a lid or cookie sheet.
• NEVER pick up or move a flaming pan.
• Oven: Smother fire or flame by closing the oven door.
DO NOT use water on grease fires. Use baking soda, a dry chemical or
foam-type extinguisher to smother fire or flame.
Child Safety
• To eliminate the hazard of reaching over hot surface elements, cabinet
storage should not be provided directly above a unit. If storage is provided,
it should be limited to items which are used infrequently and which are safely
stored in an area subjected to heat from an appliance. Temperatures may be
unsafe for some items, such as volatile liquids, cleaners or aerosol sprays.
• NEVER leave children alone or unsupervised near the appliance when it is in
use or is still hot.
• NEVER allow children to sit or stand on any part of the appliance as they
could be injured or burned.
• DO NOT store items of interest to children over the unit. Children climbing

6
Cooking Safety
• ALWAYS place a pan on a surface element before turning it on. Be sure you
know which knob controls which surface element. Make sure the correct
element is turned on. When cooking is completed, turn element off before
removing pan.
• NEVER leave a surface cooking operation unattended especially
when using a high heat setting or when deep fat frying. Boilovers cause
smoking and greasy spillovers may ignite. Clean up greasy spills as soon as
possible. DO NOT use high heat for extended cooking operations.
• NEVER heat an unopened container on the surface element or in the oven.
Pressure build-up may cause container to burst resulting in serious personal
injury or damage to the appliance.

Cooking Safety (cont.)
Heating Elements and Glass Ceramic Cooking Surfaces
• If you are “flaming” liquor or other spirits under an exhaust, TURN THE
FAN OFF. The draft could cause the flames to spread out of control.
• Surface areas on or adjacent to the unit may be hot enough to cause burns.
• NEVER touch oven heating elements, areas near elements, or interior
surfaces of oven.
• Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near
elements and interior surfaces of an oven may become hot enough to cause
burns.
• During and after use, DO NOT touch or let clothing or other flammable
material contact surface of unit or areas near unit, heating elements, or
interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool.
• DO NOT COOK ON BROKEN COOKING SURFACE – If cooking surface
should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken
cooking surface and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified
technician immediately.
Utensil Safety
• Use pans with flat bottoms and handles that are easily grasped and stay
cool. Avoid using unstable, warped, easily tipped or loose-handled pans.
Also avoid using pans, especially small pans, with heavy handles as they
could be unstable and easily tip. Pans that are heavy to move when filled
with food may also be hazardous.
• Be sure utensil is large enough to properly contain food and avoid
boilovers. Pan size is particularly important in deep fat frying. Be sure pan
will accommodate the volume of food that is to be added as well as the
bubble action of fat.
• To minimize burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage due to
unintentional contact with the utensil, DO NOT extend handles over
adjacent burners. ALWAYS turn pan handles toward the side or back of the
appliance, not out into the room where they are easily hit or reached by
small children.
• NEVER let a pan boil dry as this could damage the utensil and the
appliance.
• Follow the manufacturer's directions when using oven cooking bags.
• Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic or glazed utensils are
suitable for rangetop surface or oven usage without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature. Follow manufacturer's instructions when
using glass.
• This appliance has been tested for safe performance using conventional
cookware. DO NOT use any devices or accessories that are not specifically
recommended in this guide. DO NOT use eyelid covers for the surface
units, stovetop grills, or add-on oven convection systems. The use of
devices or accessories that are not expressly recommended in this manual
can create serious safety hazards, result in performance problems, and
reduce the life of the components of the appliance.
CAUTION
To avoid risk of property damage, DO NOT use cast iron cookware.
Cast iron retains heat and may result in damaging the rangetop.
8
Cleaning Safety
• Turn off all controls and wait for appliance parts to cool before touching or
cleaning them. DO NOT touch the surface elements or surrounding areas
until they have had sufficient time to cool.
• Clean appliance with caution. Use care to avoid steam burns if a wet
sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot surface. Some cleaners can
produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
Self-Clean Oven
• Clean only parts listed in this 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 of any kind in or around any
part of the self-clean oven.
• Before self-cleaning the oven, remove broiler pan, oven racks and other
utensils and wipe up excessive spillovers to prevent excessive smoke, flareups or flaming.
• This range features a cooling fan which operates automatically during a
clean cycle. If the fan does not turn on, cancel the clean operation and
contact an authorized servicer.
• It is normal for the rangetop cooking surface of the range to become hot
during a self-clean cycle. Therefore, touching the rangetop cooking surface
during a clean cycle should be avoided.
• NEVER leave your residence when the self-clean function is operating.

Important Safety Notice and Warning
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition
65) requires the Governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the
State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm, and requires businesses
to warn customers of potential exposures to such substances. Users of this
appliance are hereby warned that when the oven is engaged in the self-clean
cycle, there may be some low-level exposure to some of the listed substances,
including carbon monoxide. Exposure to these substances can be minimized by
properly venting the oven to the outdoors by opening the windows and/or door in
the room where the appliance is located during the self-clean cycle.
Important notice regarding pet birds:
NEVER keep pet birds in the kitchen or in rooms where the fumes from the
kitchen could reach. Birds have a very sensitive respiratory system. Fumes
released during an oven self-cleaning cycle may be harmful or fatal to birds.
Fumes released due to overheated cooking oil, fat, margarine and overheated
non-stick cookware may be equally harmful.
WARNING
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
To avoid risk of injury or death, DO NOT touch a hot oven
light bulb with a damp cloth as the bulb could break. Should
the bulb break, disconnect power to the appliance before
removing bulb to avoid electrical shock.
WARNING
BURN OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK
HAZARD
To avoid risk of injury or death, Make sure all
controls are OFF and oven is COOL before
cleaning. Failure to do so can result in burns or electrical shock.
CAUTION
WARNING
To avoid risk of injury or death, NEVER use appliance as a space heater
to heat or warm a room to prevent potential hazard to the user and
damage to the appliance. Also, DO NOT use the rangetop or oven as a
storage area for food or cooking utensils.
About Your Appliance
• For proper oven performance and operation, DO NOT block or obstruct the
oven vent duct located on the right side of the air grille.
• Avoid touching oven vent area while oven is on and for several minutes after
oven is turned off. When the oven is in use, the vent and surrounding area
become hot enough to cause burns. After oven is turned off, DO NOT touch
the oven vent or surrounding areas until they have had sufficient time to
cool.
• Other potentially hot surfaces include rangetop, areas facing the rangetop,
oven vent, surfaces near the vent opening, oven door, areas around the oven
door and oven window.
• The misuse of oven doors (e.g. stepping, sitting, or leaning on them) can
result in potential hazards and/or injuries.
To avoid sickness and food waste, DO NOT allow defrosted food to
remain in the oven for more than two hours.
NOTICE
DO NOT turn the temperature control on during defrosting. Turning
the convection fan on will accelerate the natural defrosting of the food
without the heat.

WARNING
This range features a self-cleaning cycle. During this cycle, the oven
reaches elevated temperatures in order to burn off soil and deposits.
A powder ash residue is left in the bottom of the oven after completion
of the self-clean cycle.
NOTE: DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners inside the oven.
Use of these cleaners can produce hazardous fumes or can damage the
porcelain finishes. DO NOT line the oven with aluminum foil or other
materials. These items can melt or burn during a self-clean cycle,
causing permanent damage to the oven.
CAUTION
DO NOT touch the exterior portions of the oven after
self-cleaning cycle has begun, since some parts become
extremely hot to the touch!
During the first few times the self-cleaning feature is used, there may
be some odor and smoking from the “curing” of the binder in the highdensity insulation used in the oven. When the insulation is thoroughly
cured, this odor will disappear. During subsequent self-cleaning
cycles, you may sense an odor characteristic of high temperatures.
KEEP THE KITCHEN WELL-VENTED DURING THE SELFCLEAN CYCLE.
FIRE HAZARD
CAUTION
You must carefully check the food during the dehydration
process to ensure that it does not catch fire.
All products are wiped clean with solvents at the factory to remove any
visible signs of dirt, oil, and grease which may have remained from the
manufacturing process. Before starting to cook, clean the range
thoroughly with hot, soapy water. There may be some burn off and
odors on first use of the appliance–this is normal.
Glass Rangetop
Clean your glass top before the first time you use it. A thorough
cleaning with a glass top cleaner is recommended.
Oven
IMPORTANT! Before first use, wipe interior with soapy water and
dry thoroughly. Then set the oven selector to bake, the thermostat
to 450°F, and operate for an hour.
All models include:
• A broad range of baking and broiling modes—up to eight cooking
modes in all—to make even your most challenging baking projects a
success
• Strong, wear-resistant glass ceramic surface for excellent cleanability

modes, partial power from the broiler is
used to bring the oven to the preheat

the desired set temperature in a manner which will
provide the optimum cooking environment based on
the selected cooking mode in the shortest possible time.
Because of variations in food density, surface texture and consistency,
some foods may be prepared more successfully using the conventional
bake setting. For this reason, conventional baking is recommended
when preparing baked goods such as custard. The user may find other
foods that are also prepared more consistently in conventional bake.
This is perfectly normal. Convection cooking is a cooking technique
which utilizes fan forced air to circulate heat throughout the entire
oven creating the optimum cooking environment. Cooking with
convection is intended when performing multi-rack baking and for
baking heavier foods.
Also, preheat time can vary based on some external factors such as
room temperature and power supply. A significantly colder room
temperature or a power supply less than 240 VAC can lengthen the
time it takes for the oven to reach the desired set temperature.

• As a general rule, to convert conventional recipes to convection
recipes, reduce the temperature by 25° F (-3.9°C) and the cooking
time by approximately 10 to 15%.
• Cooking times for standard baking and convection baking will be the
same. However, if using convection to cook a single item or smaller
load, then it is possible to have 10-15% reduction in cooking time.
(Remember convection cooking is designed for multi-rack baking or
cooking large loads.)
• If cooking items which require longer than 45 minutes, then it
is possible to see a 10-15% reduction in cooking time. This is
especially true for large items cooked in the convection roast
function.
• A major benefit of convection cooking is the ability to prepare foods
in quantity. The uniform air circulation makes this possible. Foods
that can be prepared on two of three racks at the same time include:
pizza, cakes, cookies, biscuits, muffins, rolls, and frozen convenience
foods.
• For three-rack baking, use any combination of rack positions 2, 3, 4,
and 5. For two-rack baking, use rack positions 2 and 4 or positions 3
and 5. Remember that the racks are numbered from bottom to top.
See “Oven Features” illustration.
• Items cooked in a convection function can be easily over baked. This
being the case, it is usually a good idea to pull items out of the oven
just before they seem to be done. Items will continue to cook right
after they are set out of the oven.

Operation
Operation
For instance, the preheat mode for TruConvec™ is designed to be
brought up to the set point temperature in a different manner than the
preheat mode for conventional bake. This is because TruConvec is
designed for multi-rack baking. So it is extremely critical that all rack
positions have reached the desired cooking temperature. As a result, it
is normal for oven to take slightly longer for the oven to preheat to
350°F in TruConvec mode when compared to the amount of time it
takes to preheat the oven cavity to 350°F in conventional bake mode.

Conventional and Convection Cooking Tips (cont.)
• Some recipes, especially those that are homemade, may require
adjustment and testing when converting from standard to
convection modes. If unsure how to convert a recipe, begin by
preparing the recipe in conventional bake. After achieving
acceptable results, follow the convection guidelines listed for the
similar food type. If the food is not prepared to your satisfaction
during this first convection trial, adjust only one recipe variable at a
time (cooking time, rack position, or temperature) and repeat the
convection test. Continue adjusting one recipe variable at a time
until satisfactory results are achieved.
Pan Placement Tips

Full power heat is radiated
from the bake element in the
bottom of the oven cavity and
supplemental heat is radiated
from the broil element. This
function is recommended for
single rack baking. Many
cookbooks contain recipes to
be cooked in the conventional
two-element bake
manner. Conventional baking/
roasting is particularly suitable for dishes that require a high
temperature. Use this setting for baking, roasting, and casseroles.
CONV BAKE
(Convection Bake)
The bottom element operates
at full power, and the top broil
element operates at
supplemental power. The
heated air is circulated by the
motorized fan in the rear of the
oven providing a more even
heat distribution. This even
convection bake
circulation of air equalizes the
temperature throughout the oven cavity and eliminates the hot and
cold spots found in conventional ovens. A major benefit of convection
baking is the ability to prepare food in quantity using multiple racks—a
feature not possible in a standard oven.
When roasting using this setting, cool air is quickly replaced, searing
meats on the outside and retaining more juices and natural flavor on
the inside with less shrinkage. With this heating method, foods can be
baked and roasted at the same time with minimal taste transfer, even
when different dishes are involved, such as cakes, fish or meat. The hot
air system is especially economical when thawing frozen food. Use this
setting for baking and roasting.

• When using large (15" x 13") flat pans or trays that cover most of
the rack, rack positions 2 or 3 produce the best results.
• When baking on more than one rack, it is recommended to use one
of the convection modes and the 2nd and 4th positions or the 3rd
and 5th positions for more even baking. When baking on three
racks, use any combination of positions 2, 3, 4, and 5 for more
consistent results.
• Stagger pans in opposite directions when two racks and several pans
are used in conventional bake. If possible, no pan should be directly
above another.
• Allow 1 to 2 inches of air space around all sides of each pan for even
air circulation.

Baking Chart
The rear element only operates
at full power. There is no direct
heat from the bottom or top
elements. The motorized fan in
the rear of the oven circulates
air in the oven cavity for even
heating. Use this setting for
foods that require gentle
cooking such as pastries,
TruConvec™
souffles, yeast breads, quick
breads and cakes. Breads, cookies, and other baked goods come out
evenly textured with golden crusts. No special bakeware is required.
Use this function for single rack baking, multiple rack baking, roasting,
and preparation of complete meals. This setting is also recommended
when baking large quantities of baked goods at one time.
• Make sure the oven racks are in the desired positions before turning
the oven on.
• DO NOT open the oven door frequently during baking. If you must
open the door, the best time is during the last quarter of the baking
time.
• Bake to shortest time suggested and check for doneness before
adding more time. For baked goods, a stainless steel knife placed in
the center of the product should come clean when done.
• Use the pan size and type recommended by the recipe to ensure
best results. Cakes, quick breads, muffins, and cookies should be
baked in shiny, reflective pans for light, golden crusts. Avoid the use
of old, darkened pans. Warped, dented, stainless steel and tincoated pans heat unevenly and will not give uniform baking results.

Baking problems can occur for many reasons. Check the chart below for
the causes and remedies for the most common problems. It is important
to remember that the temperature setting and cooking times you are
accustomed to using with your previous oven may vary slightly from
those required with this oven. If you find this to be true, it is necessary
to adjust your recipes and cooking times accordingly.
Roasting
CONV ROAST*
(Convection Roast)
Roasting Tips (cont.)
The convection element runs in
conjuction with the inner and
outer broil elements. The
reversible convection fan runs at
a higher speed in each
direction. This transfer of heat
(mainly from the convection
element) seals moisture inside
convection roast
of large roasts. A time savings is
gained over existing, single fan convection roast modes. Use this
setting for whole turkeys, whole chickens, hams, etc.
*Note: This function uses a high-speed convection fan for optimum
cooking performance. Some noise may be noticed from this high fan
speed. This is normal.
• When using a meat thermometer, insert the probe halfway into the
center of the thickest portion of the meat. (For poultry insert the
thermometer probe between the body and leg into the thickest part
of the inner thigh.) The tip of the probe should not touch bone, fat,
or gristle to ensure an accurate reading. Check the meat
temperature halfway through the recommended roasting time. After
reading the thermometer once, insert it 1⁄2 inch (1.3 cm) further into
the meat, then take a second reading. If the second temperature
registers below the first, continue cooking the meat.
• Roasting times always vary according to the size, shape and quality
of meats and poultry. Less tender cuts of meat are best prepared in
the conventional bake setting and may require moist cooking
techniques. Remove roasted meats from the oven when the
thermometer registers 5˚ F (-15˚ C) to 10˚ F (-12˚ C) lower than the
desired doneness. The meat will continue to cook after removal from
the oven. Allow roasts to stand 15 to 20 minutes after roasting in
order to make carving easier.
Note: You can also roast foods using bake settings. See the “Baking”
section for additional information.
ALWAYS use the broiler pan and grid supplied with each oven. The
hot air must be allowed to circulate around the item being roasted.
DO NOT cover what is being roasted. Convection roasting seals in
juices quickly for a moist, tender product. Poultry will have a light,
crispy skin and meats will be browned, not dry or burned. Cook meats
and poultry directly from the refrigerator. There is no need for meat or
poultry to stand at room temperature.
• As a general rule, to convert conventional recipes to convection
recipes, reduce the temperature by 25˚ F (-3.9˚ C) and the cooking
time by approximately 10 to 15%.
• ALWAYS roast meats fat side up in a shallow pan using a roasting
rack. No basting is required when the fat side is up. DO NOT add
water to the pan as this will cause a steamed effect. Roasting is a dry
heat process.
• Poultry should be placed breast side up on a rack in a shallow pan.
Brush poultry with melted butter, margarine, or oil before and during
roasting.
• For convection roasting, DO NOT use pans with tall sides as this will
interfere with the circulation of heated air over the food.
• If using a cooking bag, foil tent, or other cover, use the conventional
bake setting rather than either convection setting.

Broiling
CONV BROIL*
(Convection Broil)
LOW BROIL
This mode uses only a fraction
of the available power to the
inner broil element for delicate
top-browning. The inner broil
element is on for only part of
the time. Use this setting to
gently brown meringue on racks
3 or 4 in 3-4 minutes.
The top element operates at full
power. This function is exactly the
same as regular broiling with the
additional benefit of air circulation
by the motorized fan in the rear of
the oven. Smoke is reduced since
the airflow also reduces peak
temperatures on the food. Use
this setting for broiling thick cuts
of meats.
Broiling Instructions
*Note: This function uses a high-speed convection fan for optimum
cooking performance. Some noise may be noticed from this high fan
speed. This is normal.
HI BROIL
Heat radiates from both broil
elements, located in the top of
the oven cavity, at full power. The
distance between the foods and
the broil elements determines
broiling speed. For fast broiling,
food may be as close as 2 inches
(5 cm) to the broil element or on
the top rack. Fast broiling is best
high broil
for meats where rare to medium
doneness is desired. Use this setting for broiling small and average cuts
of meat.
Broiling is a dry-heat cooking method using direct or radiant heat. It is
used for small, individualized cuts such as steaks, chops, and patties.
Broiling speed is determined by the distance between the food and
the broil element. Choose the rack position based on desired results.
Conventional broiling (LOW, MED or HI BROIL) is most successful for
cuts of meat 1-2 inches thick and is also more suitable for flat pieces of
meat. Convection broiling has the advantage of broiling food
slightly quicker than conventional. Convection broiling of meats
produces better results, especially for thick cuts. The meat sears on
the outside and retains more juices and natural flavor inside with
less shrinkage.
1. Arrange the oven rack in the desired position before turning
broiler on.
2. Center the food on cold broiler pan and grid supplied with your
oven. Place broiler pan in oven.
3. Set the oven function selector to desired broiling function and the
temperature control knob to “Broil”.
MED BROIL
4. Close the door. There is not a detent to hold the door in the open
broil stop position. With open door broiling the broil element does
not cycle on and off. With closed door broiling the broil element
might cycle on and off if an extended broiling time is required.
A built-in smoke "eliminator" in the top of the oven helps reduce
smoke and odors.
Inner and outer broil elements
pulse on and off to produce less
heat for slow broiling. Allow about
4 inches (10 cm) between the top
surface of the food and the broil
element. Slow broiling is best for
chicken and ham in order to broil
food without over-browning it.
Use this setting for broiling small
and average cuts of meat.

Operation
Operation
• ALWAYS use a broiler pan and grid for broiling. They are
designed to provide drainage of excess liquid and fat away from
the cooking surface to help prevent splatter, smoke, and fire.
• To keep meat from curling, slit fatty edge.
• Brush chicken and fish with butter several times as they broil to
prevent drying out. To prevent sticking, lightly grease broiler tray.
• Broil on first side for slightly more than half the recommended
time, season, and turn. Season second side just before removing.
• ALWAYS pull rack out to stop position before turning or
removing food.
• Use tongs or a spatula to turn meats. NEVER pierce meat with a
fork, as this allows the juices to escape.
• Remove the broiler pan from the oven when you remove the
food. Drippings will bake onto the pan if it is left in the heated
oven after broiling. While pan is hot, place damp paper towel
over grid. Drizzle with liquid dishwashing detergent and pour
water over grid. This will make cleaning of the pan easier, or the
broiler pan can be lined with aluminum foil to make cleaning
easier. Be sure the foil extends up the side of the pan. Although
it is not recommended, the grid can also be covered with foil. Be
sure to slit openings to conform with the openings in the grid so
melted fat can drain through to prevent spattering, smoking, or
the possibility of grease fire.
Convection Dehydrate/Defrost
DANGER
Convection Dehydrate
This oven is designed not only to cook, but also to dehydrate fruits
and vegetables.
1. Prepare the food as recommended.
2. Arrange the food on drying racks (not included with the oven;
contact a local store handling speciality cooking utensils).
3. Set the appropriate low temperature and turn the selector to “TRU
CONV”.
CAUTION
FIRE HAZARD
You must carefully check the food during the dehydration
process to ensure that it does not catch fire.

Glass Ceramic Top
Cleaning of glass ceramic tops is different from cleaning a standard
porcelain finish. To maintain and protect the surface of your new glass
ceramic top, follow these basic steps:
For normal light soil:
Rub a few drops of a glass ceramic creame to the cool soiled area
using a damp paper towel. Wipe until all soil and creame are
removed. Frequent cleaning leaves a protective coating which is
essential in preventing scratches and abrasions.
Product Care
For heavy, burned soil:
1. Apply a few drops of glass ceramic cleaning creame to the cool
soiled area.
2. Using a damp paper towel, rub creame into burned on area.
3. Carefully scrape remaining soil with a razor scraper. Hold the
scraper at a 300 angle against the ceramic surface.
4. If any soil remains, repeat the steps listed above. For additional
protection, after all soil has been removed, polish the entire surface
with the cleaning creame.
5. Buff with a dry paper towel. As the cleaning creame cleans, it leaves
a protective coating on the glass surface. This coating helps to
prevent build-up of mineral deposits (water spots) and will make
future cleaning easier. Dishwashing detergents remove this
protective coating and therefore make the glass ceramic top more
susceptible to staining.

Oven Surfaces
Several different finishes have been used in your electric oven. Cleaning
instructions for each surface are given below. The oven features a self-clean
cycle for the oven interior. See the “Self-Clean Cycle” section for complete
instructions. NEVER USE AMMONIA, STEEL WOOL PADS OR ABRASIVE
CLOTHS, CLEANSERS, OVEN CLEANERS, OR ABRASIVE POWDERS. THEY
CAN PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR OVEN.
Control Knobs
MAKE SURE ALL CONTROL KNOBS POINT TO THE “OFF” POSITION
BEFORE REMOVING. Pull the knobs straight off. Wash in detergent and
warm water. Dry completely and replace by pushing firmly onto stem.
Stainless Steel Parts
All stainless steel body parts should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water
at the end of each cooling period and with a liquid cleaner designed for
that material when soapy water will not do the job. DO NOT use steel wool,
abrasive cloths, cleansers, or powders. If necessary, scrape stainless steel to
remove encrusted materials, soak the area with hot towels to loosen the
material, then use a wooden or nylon spatula or scraper. DO NOT use a
metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape stainless steel.
DO NOT permit citrus or tomato juice to remain on stainless steel surface, as
citric acid will permanently discolor stainless steel. Wipe up any spills
immediately.

DANGER
Cleaning and Maintenance
Self-Clean Cycle
Brass Parts
This oven features an automatic pyrolytic self-cleaning cycle. During this
cycle, the oven reaches elevated temperatures in order to burn off soil and
deposits. An integral smoke eliminator helps reduce odors associated with
the soil burn-off. A powder ash residue is left in the bottom of the oven
after completion of the self-clean cycle. The door latch is automatically
activated after selecting the self-clean setting. The latch ensures that the
door cannot be opened while the oven interior is at clean temperatures.
All special ordered brass parts are coated with an epoxy coating.
CAUTION
To avoid the risk of property damage, DO NOT USE BRASS
CLEANERS OR ABRASIVE CLEANERS ON ANY BRASS PARTS. All
brass body parts should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water.
When hot soapy water will not do the job, use every day household
cleaners that are not abrasive.
Broiler Pan and Grid
Clean with detergent and hot water. For stubborn spots, use a soap-filled
steel wool pad.
Oven Racks
Clean with detergent and hot water. Stubborn spots can be scoured with a
soap-filled steel wool pad. DO NOT CLEAN THE OVEN RACKS OR RACK
SUPPORT USING THE SELF-CLEAN CYCLE. They could sustain damage due
to the extreme heat of the self-clean cycle.
Power Failure
FOR YOUR SAFETY
No attempt should be made to operate the appliance during a power failure.
Make sure the oven control is in the “OFF” position.
Momentary power failure can occur unnoticed. The range is affected only
when the power is interrupted. When it comes back on, the range will
function properly without any adjustments. A “brown-out” may or may not
affect range operation, depending on how severe the power loss is. If the
range is in the self-clean cycle when the power failure occurs, wait until
power is restored and allow door to unlock automatically. Turn all controls off
and restart self-clean cycle again, according to instructions.
Before starting the Self-Clean cycle:
1. Remove the oven racks, and any other items/utensils from the oven. The
high heat generated during the cleaning cycle can discolor, warp, and
damage these items. DO NOT use foil or liners in the oven. During the
self-clean cycle foil can burn or melt and damage the oven surface.
WARNING
2. Wipe off any large spills from the oven bottom and sides. NEVER use
oven cleaners inside a self-cleaning oven or on raised portions of the
door.
3. Some areas of the oven must be cleaned by hand before the cycle
begins. Soils in these areas will be baked on and very difficult to clean if
not removed first. Clean the door up to the gasket, the door frame, and
up to 2 inches inside the frame with detergent and hot water. Rinse
thoroughly and dry.
DANGER
WARNING
BURN OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Make sure all controls are OFF and oven is COOL
before cleaning. Failure to do so can result in burns
or electrical shock.
CAUTION
DO NOT touch the exterior portions of the oven after self-cleaning
cycle has begun, since some parts become extremely hot to the
touch! During the first few times the self-cleaning feature is used,
there may be some odor and smoking from the curing of the binder in
the high-density insulation used in the oven. When the insulation is
thoroughly cured, this odor will disappear. During subsequent selfcleaning cycles, you may sense an odor characteristic of high
temperatures. Keep the kitchen well-vented during the self-cleaning
cycle.

3. Turn the temperature control knob past the clean setting until the
knob stops. At this time, the clean indicator light will come on. Within
30 seconds the automatic door latch engages and the oven indicator
light comes on. The oven indicator light will remain on until the oven
reaches the self-clean temperature and will then cycle on and off
during the self-clean cycle. When the oven reaches the elevated
temperature needed for self-clean, the door lock indicator light
comes on.
4. The door lock indicator light will remain on until the self-clean is
completed or interrupted and the oven temperature drops to a safe
temperature. A complete cycle is approximately 3-1/2 hours with an
additional 30 minutes needed for the oven to cool down enough for
the door latch to disengage.
Note: A fan noise will be heard during the self-clean cycle and will
continue to run for the 3-1/2 hour duration of the self-clean cycle.
5. When the cycle is completed, turn both the oven selector and
temperature control knob to the “OFF” position. When the oven has
completely cooled, open door and remove any ash from the oven
surfaces with a damp cloth.
To stop the Self-Clean cycle:
Disconnect the electric power at the main fuse or circuit
breaker before replacing bulb.
