• To keep food warm.
• To melt chocolate or butter.
• To simmer.
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.
Using POWER Burner
POWER Burner is an adjustable setting for the left
front burner which provides an ultra-high heat setting.
It can be used to rapidly bring liquid to a boil and to
cook large quantities of food.
Easy ways to save energy
• To help shorten your cooking time, use the least
amount of liquid possible.
• Preheat your pots and pans only when
recommended and for the shortest time possible.
• Start your food on a higher heat setting, then turn
the control to a lower setting to finish cooking.

control knob to the setting you want.
Home canning information
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:
• For best results, use a canner which can be
centered over the surface burner.
• Do not place your canner on two surface burners
at the same time.
• Start with hot water, cover with a lid and bring to
a boil; then reduce heat to maintain a boil or
required pressure levels in a pressure canner.
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.
Using the right cookware makes a
big difference
• The pan should have a flat bottom, straight sides,
and a well-fitting lid.
• Choose medium to heavy gauge (thickness)
cookware.
• The pan material (metal or glass) affects how
quickly and evenly the pan heats.
• When using glass or ceramic cookware, check to
make sure it is suitable for use on surface burners.
• To avoid tipping, make sure pots and pans are
centered on the grates.
CHARACTERISTICS OF COOKWARE MATERIALS
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.
Aluminum
• Heats quickly and evenly.
• Use for all types of cooking.
• Medium or heavy thickness is best for most cooking.
• Used as a core or base in cookware to provide even heating.
Cast iron
• Heats slowly and evenly.
• Good for browning and frying.
• Maintains heat for slow cooking.
• Can be coated with porcelain enamel.
Ceramic or
ceramic glass
• Heats slowly and unevenly.
• Use on low to medium settings.
• Follow manufacturer’s instructions.
Copper
• Heats very quickly and evenly.
• Used as a core or base in cookware to provide even heating.
Earthenware
• Can be used for cooktop cooking if recommended by the
manufacturer.
• Use on low settings.
Porcelain enamel-on-steel or
enamel-on-cast iron
• See cast iron and stainless steel.
Stainless steel
• Heats quickly but unevenly.
• A core or base of aluminum or copper on the cookware provides
even heating.
• Can be coated with porcelain enamel.

Saving energy
Roasting meats and poultry
• To avoid loss of heat, open the oven door as little
as possible.
• Use a timer to keep track of cooking time.
• Plan your meals for the most efficient use of the
oven by cooking more than one food at a time, or
baking while the oven is still hot after cooking a
meal.
• For even cooking, place the meat on a rack in a
shallow pan. This keeps the meat out of the drippings and allows the heat to circulate better.
• Use a meat thermometer for the most accurate
doneness. Insert it so the tip is in the center of the
largest muscle or thickest portion of the meat or
poultry. Make sure the thermometer is not touching
bone, fat, or the bottom of the pan.

ADJUSTING THE OVEN TEMPERATURE CONTROL
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 offset temperature by
following the steps below.
NOTE: DO NOT measure 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. Press and hold CLOCK for 5 seconds.
PRESS
YOU SEE
The display will show the time of day. Then you
will see the current offset temperature, for example “00,” if you have not already adjusted the
temperature.
(factory setting of “00”)
2. Set the new offset temperature.
PRESS
Press s to raise the temperature or t to lower
the temperature in 10°F amounts. You can set
the temperature change to as low as -30°F or as
high as +30°F. A minus (-) sign will appear before
the number when decreasing the temperature
setting. The minus sign shows the oven will be
cooler by the displayed amount. There is no sign
in front of the number when increasing the temperature setting.

THE OVEN VENT
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 vent, or you will get poor baking/roasting
results.
NOTE: Never store plastics, paper, or other items
that could melt or burn near the oven vent, or any
of the surface burners.
THE STORAGE DRAWER
Use the storage drawer to store cookware. You can
remove the drawer to make it easier to clean under

USING THE SELF-CLEANING CYCLE
wWARNING
Burn Hazard
Do not touch the oven during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Keep children away from oven during Self-Cleaning cycle.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners in your oven.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns, or illness from inhaling
dangerous fumes.
BEFORE YOU START
Before you start the Self-Cleaning cycle, make
sure you:
NOTE: DO NOT clean, move, or bend the gasket.
You may get poor cleaning, baking, and roasting.
• Hand-clean the areas shown. They do not get
hot enough during the Self-Cleaning cycle for
soil to burn away. Use hot water and detergent
or a soapy, steel-wool pad for cleaning.
• DO NOT let water, cleaner, etc., enter slots on
door and frame.
• Remove the broiler pan and grid and any
cookware/bakeware being stored in the oven.
• Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This will help
reduce smoke during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
• Wipe up food spills containing sugar as soon as
possible after the oven cools down. When sugar
is heated to a high temperature in the SelfCleaning cycle, the high temperature can cause
the sugar to burn and react with the porcelain.
This can cause staining and etching, pitting, or
faint white spots.
• Remove the oven racks from the oven if you
want them to remain shiny. You can clean the
oven racks in the Self-Cleaning cycle, but they
will become harder to slide. (See the “Cleaning
chart” in the “Caring for Your Range” section.) If
you clean the racks in the Self-Cleaning cycle,
place them on the 2nd and 4th rack guides. (The
guides are counted from bottom to top.)
• Heat and odors are normal during the SelfCleaning cycle. Keep the kitchen well ventilated
by opening a window or by turning on a vent
hood or other kitchen vent during the cycle.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely
sensitive to the fumes given off during the SelfCleaning cycle. Move birds to another closed and
well ventilated room.

• Clean the oven before it gets heavily soiled.
Cleaning a very soiled oven takes longer and
results in more smoke than usual.
• Do not block the vent during the Self-Cleaning
cycle. Air must move freely for best cleaning results.
• Do not leave plastic utensils on the cooktop. They
may melt.
• Remove any combustible items, such as paper
napkins, from the storage drawer. This includes
utensils with plastic handles that can become
overheated and melt.
• Do not leave any foil in the oven during the
Self-Cleaning cycle. Foil could burn or melt and
damage the oven surface.
• The oven light will not work during the SelfCleaning cycle.

HOW THE CYCLE WORKS

CLEANING CYCLE
Temperature
The Self-Cleaning cycle uses very high heat to
burn away soil and grease. During the cycle, the
oven gets much hotter than it does for normal baking or broiling. This high heat breaks up the soil or
grease and burns it away.
Your oven is automatically preset for a 31⁄2-hour
Self-Cleaning cycle.
The graph at the right shows you what happens
in a 31⁄2-hour Self-Cleaning cycle. Notice that the
heating stops 1⁄2 hour before the 31⁄2-hour setting
is up.

SEALED SURFACE BURNERS AND COOKTOP
Cleaning the surface burners
• You should routinely remove and clean the burner
cap. Always clean the burner cap after a spillover. Keeping the burner cap clean prevents
improper ignition and an uneven flame.
• For the proper flow of gas and ignition of the
burner, do not allow spills, food, cleaning
agents, or any other material to enter the gas
tube opening.
• Gas must flow freely through the gas tube
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.
• Let the cooktop cool before cleaning.
• Do not use oven cleaners, bleach, or rust
removers.
• Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
• Be careful not to allow moisture to collect in the
control areas. Moisture can cause the ignitor
switches to fail.
