IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
) Read all instructions before using
the range.
1 Install or locate the range only in
accordance
with the provided
Installation Instructions. It is recommended that the ran e be installed by a qualifie 3 installer. The
range must be properly connected to electrical
supplv and
ggiBi
;ai
) To reduce the risk of tipping of the
appliance,
the appliance
must
be secured by a properly installed anti-tip bracket. To check if
the bracket is installed properly,
remove the storage drawer (see
page14
and verify that the antitip brat 1,et is engaged.
BDo not use the range for warming
or heating the room. Persons could
be burned or injured, or a fire
could start.
l Do not leave
children alone or
unattended
in area where the
range is in use. They should never
be allowed to sit orstand on any
part of the range. They could be
burned or injured.
l Do not wear
loose or hanging garments when using the range. They
could ignite if they touch a hot surface unit or heating element and
you could be burned.
l Do not repair
or replace any part
of the range unless specifically
recommended
in this manual. All
other servicin
should be referred
to a qualified 9echnician.
l Do not store flammable
materials
in or near the range. They could
explode
or burn.
l Do not use water
on grease fires.
l
l
l
l
l
l
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flamin
pan on cooktop
by covering wrt.91 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 surfaces
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 igniting 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 spill-overs
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.
continued
on next page
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.
l Do not soak
removable
heating
elements in water. The element will
be damaged
and shock or fire
could result.
l Use care
when opening oven
door. Let hot air or steam escape
before removing or replacing
food.
l Do not heat unopened
containers.
They could explode. The hot
contents could cause burns and
container particles could cause
injury.
l Keep
range vents unobstructed.
l Always
position oven racks 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.
l 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.
l
-SAVE
Before self-cleaning
the lower
oven, remove broiler pan, broiler
grid, oven racks and other utensils.
Do not use your oven to clean
miscellaneous
parts.
l Do not store things
children might
want above the range. Children
could be burned or Injured while
climbing on it.
l 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, the
oven door and window.
. 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.

The Continuous-Cleaning Upper Oven
Standard oven walls are coated with smooth porcelain. Your ContinuousCleaning
oven walls are coated with a special, rougher porcelain. A fat
spatter beads up on the smooth surface, but spreads out on the rougher
surface. The bead of fat on the smooth surface chars and turns black. The
spread-out
fat on the rough surface gradually
burns away at medium to
high baking temperatures
so the oven can return to a presentably
clean
condition.
Using Foil
Using foil on the oven bottom is recommended
to catch sugar and starchy
spills from pies and casseroles. It must be used properly. Cut foil from a roll of
heavy-duty18-inch

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 page 21.

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.
