■    Disconnect power before servicing.

■    Injuries may result from the misuse of appliance doors or drawers such as stepping, leaning, or sitting on the doors or drawers.

■    Maintenance – Keep range area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and liquids.

■    Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven or near surface units.

■    Top burner flame size should be adjusted so it does not extend beyond the edge of the cooking utensil.

For self-cleaning ranges –

■    Before Self-Cleaning the Oven – Remove broiler pan and other utensils. Wipe off all excessive spillage before initiating the cleaning cycle.


SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

COOKTOP USE

Cooktop Controls

 

A WARNING

Do not let the burner flame extend beyond the edge of the pan.

Turn off all controls when not cooking.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or fire.

Electric igniters automatically light the surface burners when control knobs are turned to LITE.

Before setting a control knob, place filled cookware on the grate. Do not operate a burner using empty cookware or without cookware on the grate.

IMPORTANT: Do not lift the cooktop on sealed burner models. Lifting the cooktop can lead to damage and improper operation of the range.

To Set Burner Temperature:

1. Push in and turn knob counterclockwise to LITE.

All surface burners will click. Only the burner with the control knob turned to LITE will produce a flame.

2. Turn knob to anywhere between HI and LO. The clicking will stop. Use the following chart as a guide when setting heat levels.

Surface Burners

IMPORTANT: Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air around the burner grate edges.

Burner cap: Always keep the burner cap in place when using a surface burner. A clean burner cap will help avoid poor ignition and uneven flames. Always clean the burner cap after a spillover and routinely remove and clean the caps according to the “General Cleaning” section.


SETTING

RECOMMENDED USE

LITE

Light the burner.

HI

Start food cooking.

Bring liquid to a boil.

MED (medium)

Hold a rapid boil.

Quickly brown or sear food.

Fry or sauté foods.

Cook soups, sauces and gravies.

Stew or steam foods.

LO

Keep food warm.

Simmer
Power failure

In case of prolonged power failure, the surface burners can be lit manually. Hold a lit match near a burner and turn knob counterclockwise to LITE. After burner lights, turn knob to setting.


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.

6.    Replace the surface grates.

7.    Turn on the burner. If the burner does not light, check cap alignment. If the burner still does not light, do not service the burner yourself. Contact a trained repair specialist.

Home Canning

When canning for long periods, alternate the use of surface burners between batches. This allows time for the most recently used areas to cool.

■    Center the canner on the grate above the burner.

■    Do not place canner on 2 surface burners at the same time.

■    For more information, contact your local agricultural department. Companies that manufacture home canning products can also offer assistance.

Cookware

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.

certain birds. Always move birds to another closed and well-ventilated 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 V2″ (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.

For best performance, cook on one rack. Place the rack so the top of food will be centered in the oven. To move a rack, pull it out to the stop position, raise the front edge, then lift out.

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.


Baking and Roasting

IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to the interior finish, do not place food or cookware on the oven door or oven bottom.

Before baking and roasting, position racks according to the “Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section.

To Bake or Roast:

1.    Press BAKE.

Press TEMP/TIME or TEMP/HOUR “up” or “down” arrow pads to set a temperature other than 350°F (175°C) in 5° amounts. The bake range can be set between 170°F and 500°F (75°C and 260°C).

2.    Press START or START/ENTER.

The temperature can be changed at any time after this step by pressing the Temp/Time or Temp/Hour “up” or “down” arrow pads. Start does not need to be pressed again. If baking/roasting while the Timer is counting down, the set baking/roasting temperature can be displayed for 5 seconds by pressing Bake.

3.    Press OFF/CANCEL or CANCEL/OFF when finished.

Preheating

After Start is pressed, the oven will enter a timed preheat cycle. The bake indicator light will light up. The Electronic Oven Control automatically selects the preheat cycle time based on the oven temperature selected. The cycle time will not change if the temperature is reset before the cycle countdown ends. Preheat is complete and the oven is ready to use when a 1-second tone sounds, the cycle countdown ends, and the set temperature is displayed.

Preheat temperatures are affected by varying factors such as room temperature and peak energy usage times. It is normal for the temperature showing on the display and the actual oven temperature to differ.

Waiting an additional 10 minutes after the preheat time ends to put food in the oven is suggested when baking foods with leavening ingredients, such as yeast, baking powder, baking soda and eggs.

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. Use an oven rack for

broiling. To remove a rack, pull it out to the stop position, raise

the front edge, then lift out. Reverse the steps to replace a rack.

Always broil with both the broiler and the oven doors closed.

■    To avoid damage to the broiler, do not step on or apply weight to the broiler door while it is open.

■    Preheat the broiler before use. Recommended preheat times can be found in the Broiling Chart. Completely close broiler door during broiling.

■    Do not use broiler cavity for storage.

■    Broiling uses direct radiant heat to cook food. Changing the temperature when broiling allows more precise control when cooking. The lower the temperature, the slower the cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish and poultry may cook better at lower broiling temperatures

■    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 cover for contact information. Ask for Part Number 4396923.

■ Pull out the rack to the 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.

To Broil:

1.    Open the broiler door and pull the rack out to the stop position.

2.    Place food on a grid in a broiler pan, then place it in the center of the oven rack.

3.    Push the oven rack back to the original position. Close the door to ensure proper broiling temperature.

4.    Press BROIL.

The BROIL indicator light will light up.

5.    Press START.

The indicator light will light up. The temperature setting can be changed at any time during broiling. If broiling while the Timer is counting down, the set broiling temperature can be displayed for 5 seconds by touching BROIL.

6.    Press OFF/CANCEL or CANCEL/OFF when finished broiling.

BROILING CHART

For best results, place food 3″ (7.0 cm) or more from the broil element. Times are guidelines only and may need to be adjusted for individual foods and tastes. Broiling may be affected by the size, weight and thickness of food.
