the knob controls. For example, @_, indicates right
front element.
_' •
Off
• Never allow a pan to boil dry. This could damage the
pan and the appliance.
,
Never touch cooktop until it has cooled. Expect some
parts of the cooktop, especially around the surface
units, to become warm or hot during cooking. Use
potholders to protect hands.
_"!
Suggested Heat Settings
After Cooking
• Be sure surface element and surface indicator light are
off after cooking.
The size and type of cookware will affect the heat setting.
• Clean up messy spills as soon as possible.

Tips to Protect the Surface
(select models)
• Before first use, clean the cooktop as directed in the
cleaning chart on page 18.
CAUTION: Do not use the cooktop if the glass is
cracked or broken, or if metal melts on to it. Call an
authorized servicer. Do not attempt to repair it yourself.
• Do not use glass pans. They may scratch the surface.
• Do not allow plastic, aluminum foil, sugar or foods with
high sugar content to melt onto the hot cooktop. If these
accidentally melt onto the cooktop, clean immediately.
(See cleaning chart, page 18.)
• On Canadian models, the right front element may not operate
during a self-clean cycle. This is normal.
• Never use cooktop as a work surface or cutting board.
• Cooktop may emit a light smoke and odor the first few times
the cooktop is used. This is normal.
• Never cook food directly on the surface.
• When a control is turned on, a red glow from the element can
be seen through the glass-ceramic surface. The element will

off (see page 9), the surface will be cool enough to touch.
• NOTE: Do not attempt to lift the cooktop,
• Do not slide aluminum pans across a hot surface. The
pans may leave marks which need to be removed
promptly. (See cleaning chart, page 18.)
• Make sure the surface and the pan bottom are clean
before turning on to prevent scratches.
Cooking Areas
The cooking areas on your range are identified by permanent
patterns on the glass-ceramic surface. For most efficient
cooking, fit the pan size to the element size.
• To prevent scratching or damage to the glass-ceramic
top, do not leave sugar, salt or fats on the cooking area.
Wipe the cooktop surface with a clean cloth or paper
towel before using.
Pans should not extend more than 1/2 to I-inch beyond the
cooking area. (For more information on cookware, refer to
"Cooking Made Simple" booklet.)
• Never use a soiled dish cloth or sponge to clean the
cooktop surface. A film will remain which may cause
stains on the cooking surface after the area is heated.

Self-Clean CAUTIONS:
• It is normalfor parts of the range to become hot during a
clean cycle.
• Avoid touching cooktop, door, window, or oven vent
area during a clean cycle,
, To prevent damage to oven door, do not attempt to open
the door when the LOCK indicator word is displayed.
, Do not use commercial oven cleaners on the self-clean
oven finish or around any part of the oven as they will
damage the finish or parts.
Toprevent damage, do not clean or rub the gasket around

to seal in heat during
the clean cycle.
Wipe up excess grease or spillovers from the oven bottom te
prevent excessive smoking, flare-ups or flaming during the
clean cycle. For ease of cleaning, the heating element can
be lifted slightly (1 to 1]h inches).
Wipe up sugary and acid spillovers such as sweet potatoes,
tomato or milk-based sauces. Porcelain enamel is acid resistant, not acid proof. The porcelainfinish may discolor ij
acid spills are not wiped up prior to a self-clean cycle.
During Clean Cycle
The self-clean cycle uses above normal cooking temperatures
to automatically clean the entire oven interior.
It is normal for excessive flare-ups, smoking and flaming to
occur during cleaning if the oven is heavily soiled. It is better
to clean the oven regularly rather than to wait until there is a
heavy build-up of soil in the oven.
When the LOCK indicator word lights in the display, the door
cannot be opened. To prevent damage to door, do not force
door open when the LOCK indicator word is displayed.
Some smoke and odor may be detected the first few times the
oven is cleaned. This is normal and will lessen in time. Smoke
may also occur if oven is heavily soiled or if broiler pan was

gasket) and around the openlng in the door gasket with a
nonabrasive cleaning agent
such as Bon Ami or detergent and water. These areas
are not exposed to cleaning
temperatures and should be
cleaned to prevent soil from
baking on during the clean cycle.
Some soil may leave a light gray, powdery ash which can be
removed with a damp cloth. If soil remains, it indicates tha
the clean cycle was not long enough. The soil will be re
moved during the next clean cycle.
If the oven racks were left in the oven and do not slid_
smoothly after a clean cycle, wipe racks and embossed rac_
supports with a small amount of vegetable oil to restore eas<
of movement.
A white discoloration may appear after cleaning if acid o
sugary foods were not wiped up before the clean cycle. Thi_
discoloration is normal and will NOT affect performance.
