IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
injury to persons, or damage when using the range, follow
basic precautions, including the following:
■ WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF
THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED BY
PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP DEVICES. TO CHECK
IF THE DEVICES ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE
RANGE FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET
SECURELY ATTACHED TO FLOOR OR WALL, AND
SLIDE RANGE BACK SO REAR RANGE FOOT IS
UNDER ANTI-TIP BRACKET.
■ CAUTION: Do not store items of interest to children in
cabinets above a range or on the backguard of a range –
children climbing on the range to reach items could be
seriously injured.
■ Proper Installation – Be sure the range is properly installed
and grounded by a qualified technician.
■ Never Use the Range for Warming or Heating the Room.
■ Do Not Leave Children Alone – Children should not be left
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.
■ Wear Proper Apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging garments
should never be worn while using the range.
■ User Servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of the
range unless specifically recommended in the manual. All
other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
■ Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should
not be stored in an oven or near surface units.
■ Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires – Smother fire or flame
or use 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 other bulky cloth.
■ DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR
UNITS – Surface units may be hot even though they are
dark in color. Areas near surface units may become hot
enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch,
or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface
units or areas near units until they have had sufficient time
to cool. Among those areas are the cooktop and surfaces
facing the cooktop.
■ Use Proper Pan Size – The range is equipped with one or
more surface units of different size. Select utensils having
flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating
element. The use of undersized utensils will expose a
portion of the heating element to direct contact and may
result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to
burner will also improve efficiency.
■ Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat
Settings – Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite.
■ Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place –
Absence of these pans or bowls during cooking may
subject wiring or components underneath to damage.
Protective Liners – Do not use aluminum foil to line surface
unit drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as suggested in
the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result
in a risk of electric shock, or fire.
■ Glazed Cooking Utensils – Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for range-top service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature.
■ Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend
Over Adjacent Surface Units – To reduce the risk of burns,
ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to
unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a
utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and
does not extend over adjacent surface units.
■ Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements – Heating
elements should never be immersed in water.
■ Do Not Cook on Broken Cooktop – If cooktop should
break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the
broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact
a qualified technician immediately.
■ Clean Cooktop With Caution – If a wet sponge or cloth is
used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to
avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
■ Use Care When Opening Door – Let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
■ Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers – Build-up of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.
■ Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.
■ Placement of Oven Racks – Always place 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.
■ DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR
SURFACES OF OVEN – Heating elements may be hot even
though they are dark in color. 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 heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until
they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the
appliance may become hot enough to cause burns – among
these surfaces are oven vent openings and surfaces near
these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors.
For self-cleaning ranges –
■ Do Not Clean Door Gasket – The door gasket is essential
for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage,
or move the gasket.
■ 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.
■ Clean Only Parts Listed in Manual.
■ Before Self-Cleaning the Oven – Remove broiler pan and
other utensils.
For units with ventilating hood –
■ Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently – Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.
■ When flambeing foods under the hood, turn the fan on.

Induction Cooking
Induction cooking is quite different from traditional forms of
cooking. The heat is generated directly in the pan, keeping the
cooking surface cooler than with a traditional element.
Induction cooking does not lose as much heat as traditional forms
because all the heat is created in the pan itself.
The cooktop heats up or cools down quickly after the controls are
set. It also stops heating when the pan is removed without turning
off the power.
Food spilled on the cooktop surface will not burn because the
glass is not heated. Induction cooking allows for immediate
cleaning after use because the heat is created in the pan.
Pan size, material (see “Cookware” section), and positioning are
very important to achieve maximum wattage.
The diameter of the pan’s base should be equal to the size of the
element.
If the pan is too small, the burner does not sense the pan and will
not activate.
K. Control lock

Clean the cooktop after each use to help avoid scratches, pitting,
abrasions and to condition the glass surface. Ceramic glass
cooktop cleaner and a cooktop scraper are also recommended for
stubborn soils. Do not use abrasive cleaners, cleaning pads or
harsh chemicals for cleaning. The Cooktop Care Kit Part Number
31605 contains all of the items needed to clean and condition your
ceramic glass cooktop. Refer to the “Range Care” section for
additional information.
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the cooktop surface
and to make soils easier to remove, clean the cooktop after each
use to remove all soils.
■ Avoid storing jars or cans above the cooktop. Dropping a heavy
or hard object onto the cooktop could crack the cooktop.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not leave a hot lid on the
cooktop. As the cooktop cools, air can become trapped
between the lid and the cooktop, and the ceramic glass could
break when the lid is removed.
■
For foods containing sugar in any form, clean up all spills and
soils as soon as possible. Allow the cooktop to cool down
slightly. Then, while wearing oven mitts, remove the spills while
the surface is still warm. If sugary spills are allowed to cool
down, they can adhere to the cooktop and can cause pitting
and permanent marks.
■
To avoid scratches, do not slide cookware or bakeware across
the cooktop.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not allow objects that
could melt, such as plastic or aluminum foil, to touch any part
of the entire cooktop.
■
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not use the cooktop as a
cutting board.
■
Use cookware about the same size as the surface cooking
area. Cookware should not extend more than ½" (1.3 cm)
outside the area. Minimum pan size is also noted on the
cooktop with the inner ring, if applicable.

Make sure the bottoms of pots and pans are clean and dry
before using them. Residue and water can leave deposits when
heated.
Cookware
Only ferromagnetic pans can be used for induction cooking.
Ferromagnetic materials include:
■ Enameled steel
■
Cast iron
■
Stainless steel designed for induction cooking
Ideal cookware should have a flat bottom, straight sides and a wellfitting lid, and the material should be of medium-to-heavy
thickness.
Choose the correct pan size for each surface cooking area. The
diameter of the pan’s base should correspond to the size of the
surface cooking area.
Non-ferromagnetic materials include:
These types of pans will not work with induction cooking.
■ Stainless steel
■
Glass
■
Ceramic
■
Copper or aluminum pans
To find out whether your pans can be used with an induction
cooktop, flip the pan over, hold a magnet to the bottom of the pan,
and see whether it sticks. If the magnet sticks to the bottom of the
pan, the pan is ferromagnetic and can be used for induction
cooking.
The number on the surface cooking area heat setting display will
flash if no pan is placed on the surface cooking area, or the pan is
not made of the right material, or it is not the right size. It will stop
flashing once a suitable pan is placed on the surface cooking area.
If you take longer than 90 seconds to place the correct pan on the
surface cooking area, the surface cooking area will turn off.
NOTE: Cookware manufacturers often give the diameter across the
top of the pan. This is usually larger than the diameter of the base.
Pans with rough finishes may scratch the cooktop.
Home Canning
Canning can be performed on the induction cooktop. When
canning for long periods, alternate the use of surface cooking areas
or elements between batches. This allows time for the most
recently used areas to cool.
■ Center the canner on the largest surface cooking area or
element. On electric cooktops, canners should not extend
more than ½" (1.3 cm) beyond the surface cooking area or
element.
■
Do not place canner on 2 surface cooking areas or elements at
the same time.
■
On ceramic glass models, use only flat-bottomed canners to
avoid damage to the cooktop and elements.
■
For more information, contact your local agricultural extension
office, or refer to the USDA Home Canning Guides. Companies
that manufacture home canning products can also offer
assistance.

Baking and Roasting
®
ACCUBAKE Temperature Management System
The ACCUBAKE® system electronically regulates the oven heat
levels during preheat and bake to maintain a precise temperature
range for optimal cooking results. The bake and broil elements or
burners cycle on and off in intervals. On convection range models,
the fan will run while preheating and may be cycled on and off for
short intervals during Bake to provide the best results. This feature
is automatically activated when the oven is in use.
Before baking and roasting, position racks according to
“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. When roasting, it is not
necessary to wait for the oven preheat cycle to end before putting
food in unless it is recommended in the recipe.
Preheating
When START is pressed, “LO” will be displayed and the oven will
begin preheating. Once 100ºF (38ºC) is reached, the display
temperature will increase as the actual temperature of the oven
increases. When the preheat temperature is reached, a tone will
sound, and the selected temperature will appear on the display.
The time necessary to preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C) is
approximately 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the model. Factors
that have an impact on preheat times are: room temperature,
starting oven temperature, and the number of oven racks. Unused
oven racks can be removed prior to preheating your oven to reduce
preheat time.
Rapid Preheat
Rapid Preheat can be used to shorten the preheating time. Only one
standard flat oven rack should be in the oven during Rapid Preheat.
Extra racks should be removed prior to starting Rapid Preheat.
Press RAPID PREHEAT and follow the oven control prompts, or, if
preheating has already started, simply press RAPID PREHEAT. The
preheating cycle should be completed before placing food in the
oven and should be used only for one-rack baking. When the Rapid
Preheat cycle is complete, the oven starts a normal Bake cycle.
Broiling
Leave the door open 6" (15 cm) at the broil stop position to ensure
proper broiling temperature. Preheat the oven for 5 minutes before
putting food in unless recommended otherwise in the recipe.
Position food on grid in a broiler pan, then place it in the center of
the oven rack.
NOTE: Odors and smoke are normal the first few times the oven is
used or if the oven is heavily soiled.
Changing the temperature when broiling allows more precise
control when cooking. The lower the broil setting, the slower the
cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish
and poultry may cook better at lower broil settings. Use racks 6 or
7 for broiling. Refer to the “Positioning Racks and Bakeware”
section for more information.
When broiling on the low or medium settings, the broil element will
cycle on and off to maintain the proper temperature.
■ For best results, use a broiler pan and grid. It is designed to
drain juices and help avoid spatter and smoke.
If you would like to purchase a broiler pan, one may be ordered.
Please refer to the “Accessories” section for more information.
Convection Cooking
TimeSavor™ Plus Convection cycles the bake, broil, and convection
elements on and off in intervals while the fan circulates the hot air.
This movement of hot air helps maintain a consistent temperature
throughout the oven, cooking foods more evenly, crisping surfaces
while sealing in moisture and yielding crustier breads.
IMPORTANT: With convection cooking, most foods can be cooked
at a lower temperature or at a shorter time. This range
automatically reduces the set oven temperature by 25°F (15°C) for
convection cooking.
During convection cooking, the bake, broil, and convection
elements cycle on and off in intervals to maintain the oven
temperature, while the fan circulates the hot air.
If the oven door is opened during convection cooking, the fan will
turn off immediately. It will come back on when the oven door is
closed.
NOTE: The oven door must be closed for convection broiling.
TimeSavor™ Plus Convection
When convection baking, broiling or roasting enter your normal
baking temperature. The control will automatically reduce the set
oven temperature by 25°F (15°C).
Convect Options
Convect Bake - Multiple-rack baking or cookies, biscuits, breads,
casseroles, tarts, tortes, cakes.
Convect Roast - Whole chicken or turkey, vegetables, pork roasts,
beef roasts.
Convect Broil - Thicker cuts or unevenly shaped pieces of meat,
fish or poultry.

(“replace pan” animation showing
in the display when you place a
saucepan on an induction
surface cooking area)
See the “Pan Detection” section. Check that the saucepan is
ferromagnetic. Check that the diameter of the saucepan is large
enough. Center the saucepan on the surface cooking area.
Allow the saucepan to cool down in the event that it has
become hot when used. Switch the surface cooking area off,
then on again. If the display still does not light up, turn power
off at the circuit breaker. Wait 20 seconds and turn power back
on.
Long cooking time (performance
boost function display flashing
and switching off)
The Performance boost function operates the surface cooking
area with the most power. During long cooking times, it is
possible that the function will switch the surface cooking area
off to keep the cooktop from overheating. You can continue to
use the cooktop if the display is not flashing.
Error code (display flashing “Er”
and numbers)
If an “Er” and a series of numbers appear in the display panel,
turn power off at the circuit breaker. Turn on again. If problem
continues, call customer service. See the cover for contact
information.

Noises
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSES
SOLUTIONS
Operational cooktop sounds
The following are some normal
sounds with the explanations.
These sounds are normal
operational noises.
Low humming
This occurs when cooking at high
power. The cause of this is the
amount of energy that is
transmitted from the appliance to
the cookware.
This sound will quiet or go away when the power is turned
down.
Crackling
Cookware is used that consists
of different materials. The noise is
caused by vibrations in the joint
faces between the different
layers.
The sound may change depending on the amount and type of
food being cooked.
Fan noise
The electronics require a
controlled temperature in order to
function reliably.
The cooktop is fitted with a fan that runs at various speeds
according to the temperature detected. The fan may also
continue to run even after the cooktop has been switched off, if
the temperature it detects is too high.
