You are personally responsible for: * Reading and following all safety precautions in this Use & Care Guide and the Cooking Guide. * installing the range where it is protected from the elements, and on a floor strong enough to support its weight. ® Properly connecting the range to electrical supply and grounding. e Making sure the range is not used by anyone unable to operate it properly. * Properly maintaining the range. e Using the range only for jobs expected of a home range. See “Cooking Guide” for impor- tant safety and use information. SAVE THESE IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS WARNING: When using your range, follow basic precautions, including the following. DO NOT allow children to use or play with any part of the range, or leave them unattended near it. They could be burned or injured. DO NOT store things children might want above the range. Children could be burned or injured while climbing on it. DO NOT allow anyone to touch hot surface elements or heating ele- ments. Dark colored elements can still be hot enough to burn severely. KEEP children away from the range when it is on. The cooktop and oven walls, racks and door can get hot enough to cause burns. DO NOT use the range to heat a room. Persons in the room could be burned or injured, or a fire could start. KEEP pan handles turned in but not over another surface element to avoid burns, injury and to help pre- vent the utensil from being pushed off the surface elements. DO NOT use water on grease fires. The fire will spread. Cover fire with large lid or smother with baking soda or salt. DO NOT wear loose or hanging garments when using the range. They could ignite if they touch a hot surface element or heating element and you could be burned. DO NOT heat unopened con- tainers. They could explode. The hot contents could burn and container particles could cause injury. When adding or removing food, MAKE SURE to open the oven door all the way to prevent burns. FOR YOUR SAFETY - DO NOT STORE OR USE GASOLINE OR OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND LIQUIDS IN THE VICINITY OF THIS OR ANY OTHER AP- PLIANCE. THEY COULD IGNITE CAUSING EXPLOSION AND/OR FIRE.

They can be set anywhere between HI and OFF. WARNING: Be sure all lights are OFF when you are not cooking. Someone could be burned or a fire could start if a surface element is accidentally left ON. Until you get used to the settings, use the following as a guide: Use HI to start SURFACE cooking or to Er bring liquids to a boil. When cooking foods, turn to a set- ting on or between 3 and LO when sizzle starts. Use 5 to hold a rapid boil or to start frying chicken or pan- cakes. Turn to a setting on or between 3 and LO when sizzle starts. SURFACE oe continued on next page Use 4 for gravy, puddings and SURFACE oe 00 icings or to cook VA | Кл large amounts of vegetables. Turn to a setting on or ' between 2 and LO to finish cooking. a * - . » М oe URFACE 00 Use 3 to con- tinue cooking after starting at a higher setting. Use LO to con- tinue cooking after starting at a higher setting, to keep food warm or to melt chocolate or shortening. CAUTION: The use of the HI setting for long periods of time can damage surface elements and discolor chrome trim rings. Start cooking on HI and turn control down to continue cooking. Cookware Pans should be the same size or larger than the elements to prevent boilovers and hot handles. Use only flat-bottomed utensils for best cooking results and to prevent damage to the cooktop. Specialty items with rounded or ridged bottoms (woks, ridged bottom canners or tea kettles) are not recommended. WARNING: The surface element should never turn red during use. If it turns red, the bottom of the pan is not flat enough or is too small for the surface element. Damage to the surface element, cooktop, wiring and/or surrounding area could result. If the pan is too small for the surface element, you could be burned by the heat from the exposed section of the surface element. See the “Cooking Guide” for important utensil information.

THE OVEN VENT The oven vent is located under the right rear surface element. When the oven is on, hot air and moisture es- cape from the oven through this vent. Poor baking can result if this vent is blocked. When using the oven, do not use oversized pans or other items that might block the oven vent. 14 WARNING: When the oven is ON, pans and pan handles left over the right rear surface element can become hot enough to burn the user and to melt plastics. Use pot holders to move pans. Never store plastic, paper or other items that could melt or burn on any of the surface elements. THE STORAGE DRAWER The storage drawer is for storing pots and pans. Use care when handling the drawer. Removing the Storage Drawer 1. Pull drawer straight out to the first stop. Lift front and pull out to the second stop. а | 2. Lift back slightly and slide drawer all the way out. Replacing the Storage Drawer 1. Fit ends of drawer slide rails into the drawer guides on both sides of opening. 2. Lift drawer front. Then push in until the stops on the drawer slide rails have cleared the stops on the drawer guides. Lift drawer front again to clear the second stop. Slide drawer closed.

See Cleaning Chart on page 24 for cleaning instructions. WARNING: To avoid burns and possible electric shocks, make sure all controls are OFF and the elements are COOL before cleaning. 16 Replacing the Surface Elements and Drip Bowls WARNING: To avoid burns and possible electric shocks, make sure all controls are OFF and the elements are COOL. 1. Line up opening in the drip bowl and notch in the trim ring with the surface element receptacle. 2. Hold the surface element as level as possible with the terminal just started into the receptacle. 3. Push the surface element terminal into the receptacle. When the ter- minal is pushed into the recepta- cle as far as it will go, the surface element will fit into the trim ring. CAUTION: Drip bowls reflect heat back to the utensils on the surface elements. They also help catch spills. When they are kept clean, they reflect heat better and look new longer. If a trim ring gets discolored, some of the utensils may not be flat enough, or some may be too large for the surface element. In either case, some of the heat that's meant to go into or around a utensil goes down and heats the trim ring. This extra heat can discolor it. See “Cooking Guide” for further information. WARNING: DO NOT LINE THE DRIP BOWLS WITH FOIL. Shock or fire hazard could result. 17 Lift-Up Cooktop Before You Start Wi 1 Я 1. Lift front of cooktop at center and swing-up the support rod. 2.

If your oven has a rotisserie, make sure the motor socket cover Is closed. * Chrome trim rings must not be cleaned in the oven. They will discolor. 18 5. Turn on the vent hood or other kitchen vent during the cleaning cycle. This will help remove smoke, odor and heat that are normal during the cycle. SPECIAL CAUTIONS: DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners in your oven. Damage to the porcelain finish may occur. DO NOT force the Lock Lever, you could bend or break it. The lever is designed to stay locked until the oven is cool enough to safely open. Wait until it moves freely. DO NOT use foil or other liners in the oven. During the cleaning cycle foil can burn or melt and damage the oven surface. WARNINGS: DO NOT block the vent during the cleaning cycle. Air must move freely for best cleaning results. DO NOT leave a utensil over the right rear surface element during the cleaning cycle. It will become hot enough to burn you and the utensil could be damaged. DO NOT TOUCH THE COOKTOP OR OVEN DURING THE CLEAN- ING CYCLE. THEY COULD BURN YOU. Setting the Controls for Self-Clean Be sure the kitchen is ventilated during the Self-Clean cycle. This will help normal smoke and heat odors to disappear from the room as quickly as possible. \ a RY, ‚x EN + EJ 2. SELECTOR TEMPEF 1. Set the Selector control and Temperature control to CLEAN. 2.

DO NOT FORCE IT. Wait until it moves easily. WARNING: DO NOT TOUCH THE RANGE DURING THE CLEANING CYCLE. IT CAN BURN YOU. Special Tips Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the cleaning cycle to help get rid of normal heat, odors and smoke. Clean the oven before it gets heavily soiled. Cleaning a very soiled oven takes longer and results in more smoke than usual. If the cleaning cycle doesn't get the oven as clean as you expected, the cycle may not have been set long enough or you may not have prepared the oven properly. Set the cleaning time longer the next time and hand clean areas noted on page 18. 21 How It Works During the self-clean 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. The graph shows approximate temperatures and times during a self-clean cycle for 3 hours. 1000°F SELF-CLEAN CYCLE — THREE HOUR SETTING (Approximate Temperatures and Times) 875°F (468°C) CLEAN CYCLE 800°F SHUTS OFF 600°F 400°F 200°F 560°F (293°C) 520°F (271°C) LOCK LIGHT ON LOCK LIGHT OFF START % hr. 1 hr. 1% hrs. 22hrs. 21% hrs. 3hrs. 3% hrs.
