Safety Instructions
AND
SAVE
THESE
INSTRUCTIONS
Gas ranges have been thoroughly tested for safe and efficient operation. However, as with
any appliance, there are specific installation and safety precautions which must be followed
to ensure safe and satisfactorv operation.
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to
persons, or damage when using the range, follow basic
precautions, including the following:
WARNING: lf the information in this manual is not followed exactly, a
fire or explosion could result causing property damage, personal
injury or death.
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids
in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS:
l
Do not try to light any appliance.
l
l
l
Do not touch any electrical switch; do not use any phone in your
building.
Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s phone.
Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.
If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
Installation and service must be performed by a qualified installer,
service agency or the gas supplier.
5eneral
) Install or locate the range only in accordance with the provided Installation
Instructions. The range must be installed
by a qualified installer. The range must
be properly connected to the proper gas
supply and checked for leaks. The range
must also be properly connected to
electrical supply and grounded.
. Gas fuels and their use in appliances can
cause minor exposures to benzene,
formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and
soot, primarily from incomplete combustion. Significant exposure to these
substances could cause cancer or
reproductive harm. Properly adjusted
l
l
l
burners with a blue, rather than a yellow,
flame will minimize incomplete combustion. Venting with a hood or an open
window will further minimize exposure.
Do not store things children might want
above the range. Children could be
burned or injured while climbing on it.
Do not leave chiklren alone or unattended
in area where the range is in use. They
should never be allowed to sit or stand on
any part of the range. They could be
burned or injured.
Do not operate the range if it is damaged
or not working properly.
continued on next page
3
Do not use the range for warming or
heating the room. Persons could be
burned or injured, or a fire could start.
Do not attempt to light the oven burner
during a power failure. Personal injury
could result. Reset oven controls to the
off position in the event of a power failure.
Use the range only for its intended use as
described in this manual.
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
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, the oven door
and window, could also become hot
enough to cause bums.
l
When using the cooktop
l
l
l
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
couM 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 reflector
pans, 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.
l
l
Make sure the utensils you use are large
enough to contain food and avoid boilovers and spillovers. Heavy splattering or
spillovers left on a range could ignite and
burn you. Pan size is especially important
in deep fat frying.
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.
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 using the oven
‘Always position the oven rack(s) in
desired location while oven is cool.
. Use care when opening oven door. Let
hot air or steam escape before removing
or replacing food.
Grease
l
l
Grease is flammable. Do not allow
grease to collect around cooktop or in
vents. Wipe spillovers immediately.
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 or flat tray. Flaming grease
outside of pan can be extinguished with
baking soda or, if available, a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
Care and cleaning
Do not clean door heat seal. It is essential
for a good seal. Care should be taken not
to rub, damage or move the seal. Clean
only parts recommended in this Use and
Care Guide.
l Do not repair or replace any part of the
range unless specifically recommended in
this manual. All other servicing should be
referred to a qualified technician.
*Any additions, changes or conversions
required in order for this appliance to
satisfactorily meet the application needs
must be made by a Whirlpool@ service
company or Qualified Agency.
l Disconnect
the electrical supply and the
gas supply at the shutoff valve near the
range before servicing the range.

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
l
juices or water) so food does not get
overdone.
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 1 ‘X-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

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 Start food on higher heat settings, and
then set surface burner control on low to
finish cooking.
l Use the more efficient surface burners
instead of the oven when possible.
l Turn on the surface burner only after
placing filled pan on the burner grate.
14
l
l
l
l
l
l
“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 the 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.
Keep reflector pans clean for best heat
reflection.
The oven vent
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven
through a vent located in lower part of
backguard. The vent is needed for air
circulation. Do not block the vent. Poor
baking/roasting will result.
NOTE: Never store plastics, paper or other
items that could melt or burn near the oven
vent, or any of the surface burners.
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.
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
.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.

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.
