and uneven flames. Always clean the burner cap after a spillover
and routinely remove and clean the caps and bases according to
the “General Cleaning” section.
Gas tube opening: Gas must flow freely throughout the gas tube
opening for the burner to light properly. Keep this area free of soil
and do not allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other
material to enter the gas tube opening. Keep spillovers out of the
gas tube by always using a burner cap.

Cookware
A. 1-1½" (2.5-3.8 cm)
B. Burner ports
Burner ports: Check burner flames occasionally for proper size
and shape as shown above. A good flame is blue in color, not
yellow. Keep this area free of soil and do not allow spills, food,
cleaning agents or any other material to enter the burner ports.
To Clean:
IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and
the oven and cooktop are cool. Do not use oven cleaners, bleach
or rust removers.
1. Remove the surface burner grates.
2. Remove burner cap from the burner base and clean
according to “General Cleaning” section.
3. Clean the gas tube opening with a damp cloth.
4. Clean clogged burner ports with a straight pin as shown. Do
not enlarge or distort the port. Do not use a wooden
toothpick. If the burner needs to be adjusted, contact a
trained repair specialist.
5. Replace the burner cap onto the burner base, making sure
the alignment pins are properly aligned with the burner cap.
IMPORTANT: Do not leave empty cookware on a hot surface
cooking area, element or surface burner.
Ideal cookware should have a flat bottom, straight sides and a
well-fitting lid, and the material should be of medium-to-heavy
thickness.
Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop or grates. Aluminum and
copper may be used as a core or base in cookware. However,
when used as a base they can leave permanent marks on the
cooktop or grates.
Cookware material is a factor in how quickly and evenly heat is
transferred, which affects cooking results. A nonstick finish has
the same characteristics as its base material. For example,
aluminum cookware with a nonstick finish will take on the
properties of aluminum.
Cookware with nonstick surfaces should not be used under the
broiler.
Use the following chart as a guide for cookware material
characteristics.

OVEN USE
Odors and smoke are normal when the oven is used the first few
times, or when it is heavily soiled.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to
the fumes given off. Exposure to the fumes may result in death to
certain birds. Always move birds to another closed and wellventilated room.
Aluminum Foil
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the oven bottom
finish and the broiler door handle, do not line the oven bottom
with any type of foil or liner.
■ On those models with bottom vents, do not block or cover
the oven bottom vents.
■
For best cooking results, do not cover entire rack with foil
because air must be able to move freely.
■
To catch spills, place foil on rack below dish. Make sure foil is
at least ¹⁄₂" (1.3 cm) larger than the dish and that it is turned
up at the edges.
Positioning Racks and Bakeware
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the porcelain
finish, do not place food or bakeware directly on the oven door or
bottom.
RACKS
■
Position racks before turning on the oven.
■
Do not move racks with bakeware on them.
■
Make sure racks are level.

To Broil:
Baking and Roasting
IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to the interior finish, do not place
food or cookware directly on the oven door or the oven bottom.
Before baking and roasting, position the racks according to the
“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. When roasting, it is
not necessary to wait for the oven to preheat before putting food
in, unless recommended in the recipe.
To Bake or Roast:
1. Push in and turn the oven control knob to the desired
temperature setting.
2. Place food in oven.
The oven burner will cycle on and off to keep the oven
temperature at the setting.
3. Check food for doneness at minimum time in recipe. Cook
longer if necessary.
4. Push in and turn oven control knob to OFF when finished.
IMPORTANT: When the oven is baking, the burner in the broiler
drawer will be on. Do not store anything in the broiler drawer.
Broiling
BROILER
The broiler is located below the oven door. The broiler pan and
grid slide out for easy access. Always broil with the broiler and
oven doors closed.
■ To avoid damage to the broiler, do not step on or apply
weight to the broiler door while it is open.
■
Do not preheat broiler before use. Completely close broiler
door during broiling.
■
It is possible to broil longer cooking foods such as chicken
pieces at a lower temperature to avoid overbrowning. Turn
the knob to 400°F or 450°F, rather than Broil, for low
temperature broiling.
■
Do not use broiler cavity for storage.
■
Use only the broiler pan and grid provided with the range. It is
designed to drain juices and help avert spatter and smoke.
■
For proper draining, do not cover the grid with foil. The
bottom of the pan may be lined with aluminum foil for easier
cleaning.
■
Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit the remaining fat on
the edges to avert curling.
■
Pull out oven rack to stop position before turning or removing
food. Use tongs to turn food to avoid the loss of juices. Very
thin cuts of fish, poultry or meat may not need to be turned.
■
After broiling, remove the pan from the oven when removing
the food. Drippings will bake on the pan if left in the heated
oven, making cleaning more difficult.
1. Open the broiler door and take out the broiler pan and grid.
2. Place food on the grid so grease can drain down into the
lower part of the broiler pan.
3. Place the pan on the broiler rack and close the broiler door.
4. Push in and turn the oven control knob to broiler position. The
temperature can be lowered at any time during the broiling by
turning the oven control knob to the desired temperature.
5. Push in and turn oven control knob to OFF position when
finished.
