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. ■ SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS 3 This induction cooktop generates and uses ISM frequency energy that heats cookware by using an electromagnetic field.

Right front surface cooking area display 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 L. Heat level slider M.

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. A B C A. ½" (1.3 cm) Maximum overhang B. Outer edge of cooktop C. Minimum pan size, if applicable ■ Use flat-bottomed cookware for best heat conduction and energy efficiency. Cookware with rounded, warped, ribbed or dented bottoms could cause uneven heating and poor cooking results. 1 2 3 1 4 5 6 2 7 8 3 9 10 4 11 12 13 5 ■ Determine flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler across the bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the ruler, no space or light should be visible between it and the cookware. 14 15 6 16 17 18 7 ■ 19 20 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. 9 OVEN USE Odors and smoke are normal when the oven is used the first few times, or when it is heavily soiled.

If a Max Capacity Oven Rack is used, the rack position must be adjusted as shown in the previous figure. Multiple Rack Cooking 2-rack: Use rack positions 2 and 5 for regular baking. 2-rack (convection only): Use rack positions 2 and 5; or 3 and 6. 3-rack (convection only): Use rack positions 1, 4 and 7; or 2, 4 and 6. Baking Cakes on 2 Racks For best results when baking cakes on 2 racks, use racks 2 and 5. For best results when convection baking cakes on 2 racks, use racks 1 and 4. Place the cakes on the racks as shown. Split Oven Rack (on some models) Split-Rack with Removable Insert To Use Racks: The split-rack with removable insert is a space maximizer. When the two are attached, they make a full rack. The insert can also be removed to provide room for large items such as a turkey and casseroles. Do not place more than 25 lbs (11.3 kg) on the splitrack. The insert can also be used on the counter as a cooling rack. 1. Place a full rack in the lower section of the oven and position the split-rack above it. 2. Place large items on the right side of the full rack. 3. Place deeper, covered dishes on the left side of the full rack. 4. Place shallow dishes on the split-rack. 5. When finished cooking, slowly remove items. A B A A. Split-rack B. Removable insert If you would like to purchase a split-oven rack, one may be ordered. See “Accessories” section to order. B A. Place shallow dishes on the split-rack B. Large item placed on the right side of full-rack 12 Oven Vent The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven, and should not be blocked or covered. Blocking or covering the oven vent will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking and cleaning results. Do not set plastics, paper or other items that could melt or burn near the oven vent. A. Oven vent 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. 13 Cook Time To Set a Delayed Timed Cook: WARNING Food Poisoning Hazard Do not let food sit in oven more than one hour before or after cooking.

RANGE CARE Clean Cycle AquaLift™ Technology is an innovative cleaning solution that utilizes heat and water to release baked-on spills from the oven in less than 1 hour. This new cleaning technology is a low-heat, odorfree alternative to traditional self-cleaning options. Allow the oven to cool to room temperature before using the Clean cycle. If your oven cavity is above 200°F (93°C), “OVEN COOLING” will appear in the display, and the Clean cycle will not be activated until the oven cavity cools down. 5. Press CANCEL at the end of the cycle. CANCEL may be pressed at any time to stop the Clean cycle. 6. Remove the residual water and loosened soils with a sponge or cloth immediately after the Clean cycle is complete. Much of the initial 2 cups (16 oz [500 mL]) of water will remain in the oven after the cycle is completed. If additional soils remain, leave a small amount of water in the oven bottom to assist with the cleaning. To Clean: 1. Remove all racks and accessories from the oven cavity and wipe excess soil. Use a plastic scraper to remove easilyremoved soils. 7. If any soils remain, remove them with a non-scratch scrubbing sponge or plastic scraper. Additional Clean cycles may be run to help remove the stubborn soils. IMPORTANT: Do not use oven cleaners. The use of chemicals, including commercial oven cleaners or metal scouring pads, may cause permanent damage to the porcelain surface of the oven interior. NOTES: 2. Pour 2 cups (16 oz [500 mL]) of distilled or filtered water onto the bottom of the empty oven and close the oven door. IMPORTANT: Do not use chemicals or other additives with the water. Do not open the oven door during the Clean cycle. The water on the oven bottom is hot. 3. Press CLEAN and then START on the oven control panel. 4. Allow 40 minutes for cleaning and cool down. A beep will sound when the Clean cycle is complete. ■ The range should be level to ensure that the entire surface of the bottom of the oven cavity is covered by water at the beginning of the Clean cycle. ■ For best results, use distilled or filtered water. Tap water may leave mineral deposits on the oven bottom. ■ Before removing the residual water and loosened soils at the end of the Clean cycle, insert a cloth or paper towel between the lower edge of the oven door and the front frame to keep water from spilling onto the front of the range and the floor. ■ Soil baked on through several cooking cycles will be more difficult to remove with the Clean cycle. ■ Nonabrasive scrub sponges or eraser style cleaning pads (without cleaners) can be effective for cleaning the oven cavity walls, oven door and oven bottom for difficult soils. For best results, moisten the pads and sponges before use. ■ Run an additional Clean cycle for stubborn soils. ■ affresh™ Kitchen Appliance Cleaner and affresh™ Cooktop Cleaner may be used to clean the oven bottom, walls and door when the oven has finished the cycle and returned to room temperature.

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.
