Safety Precautions

Before operating this appliance it is VERY important that you read the safety precautions on pages 4 to 10 as well as all safety precautions listed on this and the following pages with the header, “Safety Before Operating” .

• Make sure your appliance is properly adjusted by a qualified service technician or installer for the type of gas (natural or LP) that is to be used. Your appliance can be converted for use with either type of gas. See the installation instructions section in this manual.

These adjustments must be done by a qualified service technician according to the manufacturer’s instructions and all codes and requirements of the authority having jurisdiction. Failure to follow these instructions could result in serious injury or property damage. The qualified agency performing this work assumes responsibility for the conversion.

• Items of interest to children should not be placed in cabinets above a appliance or on the backsplash of appliance—children climbing on the appliance to reach items could be seriously injured.

• DO NOT leave children alone or unattended where appliance is hot or in operation. They could be seriously burned.

• DO NOT let anyone climb, stand or hang on the cooktop.

They could damage the range or cause it to tip over which could result in severe personal injury.

• NEVER use your appliance as a space heater to heat or warm the room. Doing so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning and overheating of the oven.

• NEVER wear loose fitting or hanging garments while using the appliance. Be careful when reaching for items placed in cabinets over the appliance. Flammable material could be ignited if brought in contact with flame or hot oven surfaces and may cause severe burns.

• DO NOT place flammable materials in an oven, a warming drawer or near a cooktop.

• DO NOT place or use combustible materials such as gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

• DO NOT allow cooking grease or other flammable materials in or near the appliance.

• DO NOT use water on grease fires. Never touch a flaming pan. Turn the controls off. Smother a flaming pan on a surface burner by covering the pan completely with a well-fitting lid, cookie sheet or flat tray. A grease fire can be put out by covering it with baking soda or, if available, by using a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher. Flame in the upper oven or lower oven drawer can be smothered completely by closing the oven door or drawer and turning the control to off, or by using a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.

• Allow the burner grates and other surfaces to cool before touching them.

• NEVER block the vents (air holes) of the appliance. They provide the air inlet and outlet that are necessary for the appliance to operate properly with correct combustion.

• Stepping, leaning or sitting on this appliance can result in serious injuries and also cause damage to the appliance.

DO NOT allow children to climb or play around the appliance. The weight of a child may cause the appliance to tip, resulting in serious burns or other injury.

• Leak testing of the appliance shall be conducted according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

• Make sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified installer, according to the installation instructions. Any adjustment and service should be performed only by qualified gas range installers or service technicians.

• To prevent poor air circulation, place the appliance out of kitchen traffic path and out of drafty locations.

• DO NOT attempt to repair or replace any part of your appliance unless it is specifically mentioned in this manual.

All other service should be referred to a qualified technician.

• Make sure all packaging materials are removed from the appliance before operating it to prevent fire or smoke damage should the packaging material ignite.

• When cooking, set the burner controls so that the flame heats only the bottom of the utensil and does not overlap at the sides of the utensil.

• Utensils (pots and pans) that conduct heat slowly, i.e. glass pots, should be used in conjunction with burner flames at a low or medium setting.

• Turn off all controls and wait for appliance parts to cool down before touching them. Do not touch the burner grates or surrounding areas until cool.

• Use the appliance only for cooking tasks as outlined in this manual. When using the appliance, do not touch the grates, burner caps, burner bases, or any other parts in proximity to the flame. These components may be hot enough to cause burns.

• During and after use, do not touch interior surfaces of the oven until cool.

Surface Burner Safety


• If the top burner flame goes out, gas will continue to flow to the burner until the knob is turned to the

OFF position.

• Do not leave the burners ON unattended.

• Use proper pot/pan size—DO NOT use pans that are unstable or easily tipped. Select cookware having flat bottoms and large enough to cover burner grates. To avoid spillovers, make sure cookware is large enough to contain the food properly. This will save both cleaning time and prevent hazardous accumulations of food which could ignite if left on the appliance. Use pans with handles that can be easily grasped and remain cool.

• Use the least possible amount of fat for effective shallow or deep-fat frying. Filling the pan too full of fat can cause spillovers when food is added.

• DO NOT cook foods directly on the flame (without a pot or pan), use proper cookware.

• DO NOT use a wok on the surface burners if the wok has a round metal ring that is placed over the burner grate to support the wok. This ring acts as a heat trap, which may damage the burner grate and burner ring. Also, it may cause the burner to work improperly and may cause a carbon monoxide level above that allowed by current standards, resulting in a health hazard.

• Foods for frying should be as dry as possible. Frost or moisture on foods can cause hot fat to bubble up and spill over the sides of the pan.

• NEVER leave the surface burners unattended at high flame settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.

• NEVER try to move a pan of hot fat, especially a deep fat fryer. Wait until the fat is cool.

• DO NOT place plastic items on the cooktop—they may melt if left too close to the vent.

• Always turn the burner knob to the Ignite position when igniting the top burners and make sure the burners have ignited.

• Control the top burner flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the cookware. Excessive flame is hazardous.

• Keep all plastics away from the surface burners.

• To prevent burns, always be sure that the Burner knobs are in the OFF position and all grates are cool before attempting to remove them.

• If you smell gas, turn off the gas to the appliance and call a qualified service technician. Never use an open flame to locate a leak.

• Use only dry pot holders—moist or damp pot holders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. DO

NOT let pot holders come near open flames when lifting cookware. DO NOT use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of a pot holder.

• Always turn Burner knob to the OFF position before removing cookware.

• When using glass cookware—make sure it is designed for top-of-range cooking.

• To prevent burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage, cookware handles should be turned toward the side or back of the appliance and should not extend over adjacent burners.

• NEVER place any items on the cooktop. The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable items and will increase pressure in closed containers, which may cause them to burst.

• DO NOT lift the cooktop. Lifting the cooktop can cause damage and improper operation of the appliance.

• If appliance is located near a window, DO NOT hang long curtains that could blow over the surface burners and catch on fire.

• DO NOT operate the burner for an extended period of time without cookware on the grate. The finish on the grate may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.

• Always use utensils/cookware for their intended purpose.

Follow manufacturer’s instructions. Some utensils/ cookware were not made to be used in the oven or on the cooking surface.

• Carefully watch foods being fried at a high flame setting.

• Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.

• If frying combinations of oils and fats, stir together before heating.

• Use a deep fat thermometer if possible to prevent overheating fat beyond the smoking point.
