IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
Read all instructions before using
the range.
Install or locate the range only In
accordance with the provided
Installation Instructions. It is recommended that the range be
installed by a qualified installer.
The range must be properly
connected and grounded to
electrical supply.
Do not use the range for warming or heating the room. Persons
could be burned or injured, or
a flre could start.
Do not leave children alone 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 wear loose or hanging
garments when using the range.
They could ignite if they touch a
hot surface unit or heating ele
ment and you could be burned.
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.
Do not store flammable mate
rials in or near the range. They
could explode or burn.
Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flaming pan on cooktop 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.
Use only dry potholders. Moist
or damp potholders on hot sur-
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
faces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let potholder touch
hot heating elements, Do not use
a towel or bulky cloth for a potholder. They could catch on fire.
Select a pan with a flat bottom
that is about the same size as
the surface unit. If pan Is smaller
than the surface unit, some of
the heating element will be
exposed and may result in the
ignitlng of clothing or potholders.
Correct pan size also Improves
cooking efficiency.
Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings. A
boil-over could result and cause
smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite.
Make sure the reflector bowls
are in place during cooking.
Cooking without reflector bowls
may subject the wiring and
components underneath them
to damage.
Do not line reflector bowls with
aluminum foil or other liners.
Improper installation of these
liners may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire.
Check to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe for use on the
cooktop. 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.
Turn pan handles inward, but
not over other surface units. This
will help reduce the chance
of burns, igniting of flammable
materials, and spills due to
bumping of the pan.
Do not soak removable heatlng
elements in water. The element
continued
on next page
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
will be damaged and shock or
fire could result.
Use care when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing
food.
Do not heat unopened containers. They could explode. The
hot contents could cause burns
and container particles could
cause injury.
Keep range vents unobstructed.
Always position oven rack in
desired location while oven is
cool. If rack must be moved
while oven is hot, do not let
potholder contact hot heating
element in oven.
Do not clean door 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.
Do not use oven cleaners. No
commercial oven cleaner or
oven liner protective coating of
any kind should be used in or
around any part of the oven.
Before self-cleaning the oven,
remove broiler pan, broiler grid,
oven rack and other utensils.
Do not use your oven to clean
miscellaneous parts.
l
l
Do not store things children
might want above the range.
Children could be burned or
injured while climbing on it.
Do not touch surface units, areas
near units, heating elements or
interior surfaces of oven. Surface
units and heating elements may
be hot even though they are
dark in color. Areas near surface
units 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 units, areas near
units, heating elements or interior
surfaces of oven until they have
had sufficient time to cool. Other
surfaces of the range may
become hot enough to cause
burns; such as, the oven vent
opening, the surface near the
vent opening, the cooktop, and
the oven door.
. FOR YOUR SAFETY.
DO NOT STORE OR USE GASOLINE
OR OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS
AND LIQUIDS IN THE VICINITY OF
THIS OR ANY OTHER APPLIANCE.
THE FUMES CAN CREATE A FIRE
HAZARD OR EXPLOSION.

Adjusting
the Oven Temperature
Control
Does your oven seem hotter or colder than your old oven? The temperature of
your old oven may have shifted gradually without your noticing the change.
Your new oven is properly adjusted to provide accurate temperatures. But when
compared to your old oven, the new design may give you different results.
If after using the oven for a period of time, you are not satisfied with the
temperature settings, they can be adjusted by following these steps:

If a reflector bowl gets discolored,
some of the utensils may not be flat
enough, or some may be too large for the surface unit. In either case,
some of the heat that’s meant to go into or around a utensil goes down
and heats the reflector bowl. This extra heat can discolor it. See Cooking
Gulde for further informatlon.

Tips
Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the Self-Cleaning cycle to help
get rid of normal heat, odors and smoke.
Clean the oven before it gets heavily soiled. Cleaning a very soiled oven
takes longer and results in more smoke than usual.
If the Self-Cleaning cycle doesn’t get the oven as clean as you expected,
the cycle may not have been set long enough or you may not have prepared the oven properly. Set the Self-Cleaning cycle longer the next time
and hand clean areas noted on page19.

How It Works
During the Self-Cleaning cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it does for
baking or broiling...approximately
875°F (468”C)This heat breaks up grease
and soil and burns it off.

2. Remove the bulb cover in the
back of the oven by pulling out
and pushing the wire holder to
the side.
3. Remove the light bulb from its
socket. Replace the bulb with a
40-watt appliance bulb.
4. Replace the bulb cover and snap
the wire holder in place. Plug in
appliance or reconnect at the
main power supply.
