IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR COOKTOP

A WARNING

Use Proper Flame Size-Adjust flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to flame will also improve efficiency.

•    Know which knob controls each surface burner.

Place a pan of food on the burner before turning it on, and turn the burner off before removing the pan.

•    Always turn knob to the full LITE position when igniting top burners. Visually check that burner has lit. Then adjust the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.

•    Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend over adjacent surface burners-To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of the utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface burners.

•    Never leave surface burners unattended at high heat settings-Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.

•    Glazed cooking utensils-Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for cook top service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for cook top use.

•    When flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn the fan on.

•    Air curtain or other overhead range hoods, which operate by blowing a downward air flow on to a range, shall not be used in conjunction with gas ranges other than when the hood and range have been designed, tested and listed by an independent test laboratory for use in combination with each other.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN

•    Use care when opening oven door , warmer drawer or lower oven door-Stand to the side of the range when opening the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or replace food in the oven.

•    Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven vent is located below the backguard. Touching the surfaces in this area when the oven is operating may cause severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or near the oven vent. These items could melt or ignite.

•    Placement of Oven Racks. Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot use extreme caution. Use potholders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot heating elements in the oven. Remove all utensils from the rack before moving.

•    Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The

broiler pan and its insert allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler.

•    Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil. Exposed fat and grease could ignite.

   Protective liners-Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or fire.

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE

The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.

SELF-CLEANING OVENS

•    Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts listed in this Use & Care Manual. Before selfcleaning the oven, remove the broiler pan and any utensils or foods from the oven.

•    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.

•    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.

   The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR RANGE

•    Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area around each surface burner. Do not allow grease to accumulate.

•    Kitchen cleaners and aerosols—Always follow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for use.

Be aware that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing damage and injury.

•    Clean ventilating hoods frequently—Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning hoods.

Grounding Instructions

A WARNING

Oven vent location

The oven vent is located below the control panel (See Fig. 1). When the oven is on, warm air passes through this vent. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good baking results. Do not

block the oven vent.

Removing, replacing & arranging racks A CAUTION

Always use oven mitts when using the oven.

When using the appliance, oven racks and cooktop will become very hot which can cause burns.

To remove

pull the rack forward until it stops. Lift up front of rack and slide out.

To replace

fit the rack onto the guides on the oven walls. Tilt the front of the rack upward and slide the rack back into place.

Arranging

always arrange the oven racks when the oven is cool (prior to operating the oven).

Recommended oven rack positions by food type (See Fig. 2)
Food type    Position

Broiling meats    See    broil

Cookies, cakes, pies, biscuits & muffins    3    or    4

Frozen pies, angel food cake, yeast, bread

and casseroles    1    or    2

Small cuts of meat or poultry    1    or    2

Turkey, roast or ham    1

The flat oven rack or flat handle oven rack (some models) is suitable for most cooking needs. The half rack (some models) design comes with a removable section that allows for taller cooking utensils. The offset oven rack (some models) is designed to place the base of the rack about 1/2 of a rack position lower than normal. This rack design provides several additional possible positions between the standard positions. To maximize oven cooking space place the bottom oven rack (some models) in the lowest rack position for baking or roasting large cuts of meat.

Air circulation in the oven

For best baking results allow 2-4″ (5-10 cm) around the cookware for proper air circulation and be sure pans and cookware do not touch each other, the oven door, sides or back of the oven cavity. Hot air must be able to circulate around the cookware in the oven for even heat to reach around the food (See Fig. 3 ).

Baking layer cakes with 1 or 2 oven racks

For best results when baking cakes or cookies using 2 oven racks, place cookware on rack in positions 2 and 4. For best results when baking cakes or cookies using a single oven rack, place cookware on rack in positions 3 or 4 (See Fig. 2).


Effortless™ Oven Rack system

Some models are equipped with a special oven rack system that automatically partially extends the oven rack from the interior oven glides to assist in easier access to your food items. This feature works whenever the oven door is opened or closed.

A CAUTION

Make sure the oven and oven racks are COMPLETLY cool and safe to touch before attempting to assemble or disassemble the Effortless™ Oven Rack system. Never pick up hot oven rack parts.

3 IMPORTANT

REMOVE ALL OVEN RACKS and accessories before starting a self-clean cycle. If the oven racks are left in the oven during the self-clean cycle, the glide ability of the Effortless™ Oven Rack system will be damaged and will cause oven racks to loose their shiny finish and or turn blue. Remove ALL oven racks and clean according to instructions provided in the Care & Cleaning section of this manual.

To assemble the Effortless™ Oven Rack system:

1.    Locate all required parts. You will need the supplied oven rack (Effortless™ Oven Rack is a flat rack with a special dark coating on the left and right rack sides) and the 2 supplied chrome connector arms.

2.    Open the oven door. Be sure the oven is completely cool before proceeding.

3.    Place the oven rack in positions 2, 3 or 4 only (see previous page to verify positions).Be sure the rack connector brackets are at the rear of the range and pointing towards oven bottom (See Fig. 2).

4.    Assemble one connector arm at a time. With the oven door open and the oven rack in place, install one end of the connector arm to the hole in the door connector bracket (Fig. 1) and the other end in the hole in the rack connector bracket (Fig. 2 and as in Fig. 3). The oven rack may need to be adjusted in or out in the rack position to match the length of the connector arm.

5.    While holding the connector arm in place, twist the connector arm so the ends of the connector arm point upwards (See Figs. 4 & 5). The connector arm should now be locked into position.

6.    Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the other connector arm.

7.    Once both connector arms are properly in place, be sure to test the oven rack operation by gently closing the oven door. The oven rack should move in and out of the oven freely when the door is opened or closed.

3 IMPORTANT

Only the Effortless™ Oven Rack system should be used in oven rack position 2. Placing ANY other rack in oven rack position 2 will prevent the oven door

from fully closing and may damage the oven door, oven cavity or the door connector brackets.

If the rack system is not assembled with the connector arms the Effortless™ Oven rack may be used in oven rack positions 2 thru 6. Do not attempt to use the Effortless™ Oven rack in rack position 1.


Flame Size*

High Flame

Medium Flame

Low Flame

Using proper cookware

For best cooking results, cookware should have flat bottoms that rest level on the burner grate. Before using cookware, check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the cookware (Fig. 1).

A CAUTION

Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the range cooktop.

3 IMPORTANT

Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt they may damage the cooktop.

1^ NOTE

The size and type of utensil used, and the amount and type of food being cooked will influence the settings needed for best cooking results.

Cookware material types

The most popular materials available are:

Aluminum – Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware resists staining & pitting).

Copper – Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily.

Stainless – Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.

Cast Iron – A slow heat conductor however will retain heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached.

Porcelain-enamel on metal – Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material.

Glass – Slow heat conductor.

Set proper burner flame size

The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue and hardly visible in a well-lighted room. Each cone of flame should be steady and sharp. Adjust or clean burner if flame is yellow-orange.

For most cooking; start on the highest setting and then turn to a lower setting to complete the process. Use the recommendations below as a guide for determining proper flame size for various types of cooking (Fig. 2)

For deep fat frying; use a thermometer and adjust the surface knob accordingly. If the fat is too cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy. If the fat is too hot, the food will brown so quickly that the center will be undercooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the food will neither brown or cook properly.

Type of Cooking

Start most foods; bring water to a boil; pan broiling.

Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces, gravies; steaming.

Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.

*These settings are based for medium-weight metal or aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using other types of pans. Fig. 2

A CAUTION

Never operate a surface burner with the gas flame setting beyond the outer edge of a cooking utensil. A high flame wastes energy, and increases your risk of being burned by the flame (Fig. 3).


Setting surface controls

Your gas range may be equipped with many different sized surface burners. The ability to heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as the burner size increases. It is important to select cookware that is suitable for the amount and type of food being prepared.

Select a burner and flame size appropriate for the cookware size.

The smaller simmer burner (some models) is ideal for simmering delicate sauces, etc. The standard size (9,500 BTU) burners may be used for most surface cooking needs.

The larger quick boil burner or burners (some models) are best used for bringing large quantities of liquid to temperature or when preparing larger quantities of food.

Setting surface burners

1.    Place cooking utensil on top of surface burner grate. Make sure the cooking utensil is centered and stable on the grate.

2.    Push the desired surface control knob in and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF position (Fig. 1).

3.    Release the knob and rotate to the lite position. Visually check that the gas burner has lit.

4.    Push the control knob in and turn counterclockwise to the desired flame size. Use the control knob markings and adjust the flame as needed.

A CAUTION

Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the range cooktop.

3 IMPORTANT

In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface burners may be lit manually. To light a surface burner, hold a lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn the surface control knob to lite. After burner lights push in and turn knob to desired setting. Use caution when lighting surface burners manually.

1^ NOTE

DO NOT operate a surface burner with the knob left in the LITE position. The electronic ignitor will continue to spark if a surface control knob is left in the LITE position. When setting any surface control knob to the LITE position, all electronic ignitors will spark at the same time. However, only the surface burner you are setting will ignite.

Using the griddle grate (some models)

When cool remove the center burner grate and carefully replace with the center griddle grate (if equipped).

Preheat the griddle for 5 minutes using a medium to medium low center burner setting. Slow preheat ensures even heat distribution later during the cooking process.

DO NOT preheat the griddle using a hi (high) setting. Preheating on high may warp the griddle and prevent even heat distribution.

After each use:

   To prevent rusting, store griddle grate in a dry place and keep uncovered.

   After each use, clean griddle grate with a stiff brush and hot water only.

   Dry immediately and apply a light coating of vegetable oil to griddle before storing.

•    Do not clean griddle grate in the dishwasher.

Home Canning

Be sure to read and observe all the following points when home canning with your appliance. Check with the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) website and be sure to read all the information they have available as well as follow their recommendations for canning procedures.

   Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning. Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom (see “Cookware material types” in the Before setting surface controls section).

   Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more quickly.

   Use the highest heat seating when first bringing the water to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest possible setting to maintain that boil.

Convect (all models)

Benefits of the convect features

—    Foods will cook faster, saving time and energy

—    Multiple oven rack baking

—    No special pans or bakeware needed

Convect uses a fan to circulate the oven’s heat uniformly and continuously around the oven. Heated air flows around the food from all sides, sealing in juices and flavors. Breads and pastries brown more evenly. This improved heat distribution allows for fast, even cooking and browning results. It also provides better results when baking using multiple oven racks. Compared to most foods prepared in a standard oven, the convect feature will cook foods faster and more evenly.

Suggestions for convect baking

   For optimum cooking results it is recommended to preheat the oven when baking foods such as cookies, biscuits and breads.

   Reduce oven temperature 25°F from recipe’s recommended oven temperature. Follow the remainder of the recipe’s instructions using the minimum recommended cook time.

   When using 2 oven racks at the same time, place in positions 2 & 5 for best results (Fig. 1).

   Layer cakes will have better results using the normal bake feature.

Convect bake (all models)

To set convect (convection bake) with a default oven set temperature of 350°F:

Step    Press

1.    Press convect.    convect

2.    Press start (See Fig.    2).    start

^ NOTE

When choosing between the convect features, use the convect key pad to toggle between the convect bake or convect roast choices.

Convect roast (all models)

Meats cooked with convect roast will be juicer and poultry will be crisp on the outside while staying tender and moist on the inside.

Suggestion for convect roasting

1.    Preheating is not necessary when roasting foods using

convect roast.

2.    Since convect roast cooks food faster, reduce the cook time by 25% from the recommended cook time of your recipe (check the food at this time). If necessary, increase cook time until the desired doneness is obtained.

3.    Do not cover foods when dry roasting – this will prevent the meat from browning properly.

To set convect roast (convection roast) with a default oven set temperature of 350°F:

•    The convection fan will take 6 minutes to begin rotating once the convect convert feature has been activated.

   When using convect convert cook time reductions may vary depending on the oven set temperature.

   The minimum amount of cook time allowed using the convect convert feature with a bake time or a delay time bake setting is 20 minutes.

   Layer cakes will have better results using the normal bake feature.


Broil

Use the broil feature to cook meats that require direct exposure to flame heat for optimum browing results. When broiling always remember to arrange the oven racks while oven is still cool. Position the oven rack as suggested in the broil settings table (See Fig. 4).

To set broil:

Step    Press

1.    Prepare the food item for broil.

2.    Position the    interior    oven rack    while

cool. For best browning results, preheat oven for five minutes before adding food item.

3.    Place food item on rack in position as recommended. Close the oven door.

4.    Press broil.    broil

5.    Press start    (See Fig.    3).    Turn    food    start

item over when needed.

^ NOTES

•    Always pull the oven rack out to the stop position before turning or removing food item.

•    Bake time or delay start cannot be set with the broil feature. Broil times are usually short; watch the food item carefully whenever broiling.

A WARNING

Should an oven fire occur, close the oven door and turn the oven OFF. If the fire continues, use a fire extinguisher. DO NOT put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive.

A CAUTION

The broiler pan and the insert (some models) allows grease to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler. DO NOT use the pan without the insert (Fig. 2). DO NOT cover the insert with foil; the exposed grease could ignite. DO NOT use the broil pan without the insert or cover the insert with aluminum foil. The exposed fat could ignite. To insure proper broiling results use ONLY Electrolux Home Products, Inc. approved broil pan & insert.

4.    Only hot food that has already reached serving temperature should be placed in the Keep Warm Drawer. Position on rack and close Keep Warm Drawer. Dinner plates may be warmed also.

5.    When finished, turn the Keep Warm Drawer heat setting knob to OFF position. Carefully remove items and close Keep Warm Drawer.

A CAUTION

Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food or plates from the warmer drawer as cookware and plates will be hot and you can be burned.


Before starting self-clean

A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above normal cooking temperatures) which eliminate soils completely or reduces them to a fine powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.

Your oven allows you to set 3 different self-cleaning cycle durations. A 3-hour cleaning time is best used for normal cleaning; 2-hour time for light soils and a 4-hour time option for heavier burnt-on soils.

U IMPORTANT

Adhere to the following self-clean precautions:

•    DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any part of the oven interior.

•    DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The glass woven material of the oven door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or remove the gasket.

•    DO NOT use any cleaning agents on the oven door gasket. Doing so could damage the gasket (Fig. 1).

•    Completely remove all utensils, accessories and ANY ALUMINUM FOIL from oven. These items cannot withstand high self-clean temperatures and can melt. Remove broil pan and insert (some models).

•    Remove ALL OVEN RACKS. If the oven racks are not removed they will lose their special coating properties and no longer slide in and out of the oven cavity effortlessly.

•    Remove any excessive spillovers. Any spills, especially those on the oven bottom, should be wiped-up and removed before starting the selfclean cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. DO NOT allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may leave a dull spot even after cleaning.

   Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door gasket and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom (See Fig. 1; areas shown in white). These areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water.

A CAUTION

   During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the range can become very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave small children unattended near the appliance.

   During the self-clean cycle, DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution when opening the door after the self-cleaning cycle is complete. The oven may still be VERY HOT.

   The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-clean cycle of any range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.


As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven door lock will begin to close automatically. “door Loc” will appear in the display (See Fig. 1). DO NOT open the oven door while “door Loc” is on (allow about 15 seconds for the oven door to lock). Once the door has locked “CLn” will appear in the display indicating the oven will begin the self-clean process (Fig. 2).

Setting a self-clean cycle or a delayed start self-clean cycle

Examples: To start an immediate self-cleaning cycle and/or how to add a delay start time of 9:00 o’clock and shut-off self-clean automatically:

Step    Press

1. Be sure the control is set with the correct time of day, ALL the oven racks are removed and the oven door is closed.

Go to step 5 if you wish to start the self-clean immediately.

Finish steps 2 thru 6 if setting a delay start self-clean.

When the self-clean cycle has completed:

1.    The time of day and “Hot” will appear in the display window (See Fig.3).

2.    Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 hour and “Hot” is no longer displayed the “door OPn” message should appear (Fig. 4). When this message turns off the oven door may be opened.

Fig. 4

A CAUTION

   During the self-clean cycle, DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution when opening the door after the self-cleaning cycle is complete. The oven may still be VERY HOT.

   To avoid possible burns use care when opening the oven door after the self-cleaning cycle. Stand to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow hot air or steam to escape.

If it becomes necessary to stop a self-clean cycle

once it has been activated:

1.    Press cancel.

2.    If the self-clean cycle has heated the oven to a high temperature, allow enough time for the oven to cool and for the “door OPn” message to appear (Fig. 4). When this message turns off the oven door may be opened.

3.    Restart the self-clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.

1^ NOTES

Whenever the self-clean feature is active you may check the amount of time remaining in the self-clean cycle by

pressing the pad once. The oven door will be

locked until the range has cooled sufficiently. You will need to allow about 1 additional hour to the time displayed before you can open the oven door.

When the oven is cool, wipe away any residue or powdered ash with a damp cloth or paper towel.

Cleaning recommendation table
Recommendation

For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils and built-up grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on soil for 30 to 60 minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. Do not use abrasive cleaners on any of these materials; they can scratch. To remove control knobs, turn to the OFF position; grasp firmly and pull straight off the shaft. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.

Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls OFF and if needed remove any knobs from the panel. Clean using hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Be sure to squeeze excess water from the dishcloth before wiping the control panel; especially when wiping around the controls area. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the appliance. When rinsing, use clean water and a dishcloth and be sure to squeeze excess water from dishcloth before wiping the control panel.

If your range finish is Easy Care™ Stainless Steel (some models), clean the coated surface with warm soapy water using a clean sponge or cloth. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft clean cloth. DO NOT use ANY store bought cleaners like Stainless Steel cleaners or any other types of cleaners containing any abrasives, chlorides, chlorine or ammonia. It is recommended to use mild dish soap and water or a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar.

Gentle scouring with a soapy non-abrasive scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp cloth, and then scrub with a soap-filled non-abrasive scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating.

Oven racks must be removed from oven before starting a self-clean cycle. Clean using a mild, abrasive cleaner following the manufacturer’s instructions. Rinse with clean water and let dry.

Use soap & water to thoroughly clean the top, sides and front of the oven door. Rinse well. You may use a glass cleaner on the outside glass of the oven door. Do not immerse the door in water. Do not spray or allow water or the glass cleaner to enter the door vents. Do not use oven cleaners, cleaning powders or any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the outside of the oven door. Do not clean the oven door gasket. On self-cleaning models the oven door gasket is made of glass woven material which is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or remove this gasket.

See Cleaning the cooktop and surface burners instructions provided in the following Care & Cleaning section.

Burner—^ cap

Correct burner cap placement

Fig. 2

Check surface burner cap placement before operating surface burners

It is very important to be sure that all surface burner caps and burner grates are properly installed and in the correct locations BEFORE operating the cooktop burners.

A WARNING

To prevent flare-ups and avoid creation of harmful by-products, do not use the cooktop without all burner caps properly installed to insure proper ignition and gas flame size.

A CAUTION

   To avoid possible burns DO NOT attempt any of the cooktop or surface burner cleaning instructions provided before turning OFF all of the surface burners and allow them time to cool.

   Any additions, changes or conversions required in order for this appliance to satisfactorily meet the application needs must be made by an authorized qualified Agency.

For round style burners, the burner cap lip (See Fig. 1) should fit snug into the center of burner head and rest level. Refer to Figs. 2 & 3 for correct and incorrect burner cap placement. Once in place, you may check the fit by gently sliding the burner cap from side to side (Fig. 4) to be sure it is centered and firmly seated. When the burner cap lip makes contact inside the center of the burner head you will be able to hear the burner cap click. Please note that the burner cap should NOT move off the center of the burner head when sliding from side to side.

Check and be sure that the oval style (some models) burner cap is correctly positioned. It should rest level on top of oval burner head.

3 IMPORTANT

•    Always keep all surface burner caps in place whenever operating any surface burner.

•    When placing the burner caps, be sure that all burner caps are seated firmly and rest level on top burner heads.

Cleaning the cooktop and surface burners

Cleaning recessed and contoured areas of cooktop

It is important to routinely clean the cooktop. Keeping the cooktop surface clean after each use will help avoid soil buildup from becoming very difficult to remove.

To avoid scratching, wipe with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry. If a spill occurs on or in the recessed or contoured areas of the cooktop, blot up spill with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry.


To replace the oven light bulb:

Cleaning the cooktop and surface burners

(cont’d)

3 IMPORTANT

•    For proper flow of gas and ignition of burners — DO

NOT allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other material to enter the gas orifice opening.

•    The surface burner heads are secured to the cooktop and must be cleaned in place.

Cleaning burner caps

•    Remove caps from burner heads only after they are cool.

•    DO NOT clean burner caps in the dishwasher.

•    DO NOT use abrasive cleaners. They can scratch and dull the porcelain finish.

•    Clean heavy soils with a nonabrasive plastic scrubbing pad and wipe with absorbent cloth.

•    Thoroughly dry burner caps immediately following cleaning including the bottom and inside of cap.

Cleaning surface burner heads

For proper gas flow it may be necessary to clean the burner head and slots. To clean, first use a clean DAMP cloth to soak up any spills. Remove any food from between the burner slots using a small nonabrasive brush like a toothbrush and afterwards wipe up using a damp cloth (See Fig. 1). For stubborn soils located in the slots, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean.

Cleaning burner head ignition ports

Each round burner head has a small ignition port (Fig. 1). Should you experience ignition problems it may be that this port is partially blocked with soil. With the burner head in place, use a small wire gauge needle or the end of a paper clip to clear the ignition port (center burner not shown).

To clean burner grates

•    Clean ONLY when the grates are completely cool.

•    Use nonabrasive plastic scrubbing pad and a mild abrasive cleanser.

•    Food soils containing acids may affect the finish. Clean immediately after the grates are cool.

•    Thoroughly dry grates immediately following cleaning.

Aluminum foil and oven liners

Do not use aluminum liners or foil to cover the oven bottom or cover the oven racks with foil.

Liners or covers will restrict the heat and air flow needed to obtain the best possible cooking results for any oven, including the warmer drawer (some models).

The temperatures generated inside the oven during the self-clean cycle are high enough to melt aluminum, resulting in possible damage to the interior porcelain oven surfaces. Read the following warning:

A WARNING

NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack with materials such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may trap heat, causing a fire hazard.

Replacing the oven light

The oven light is located on the oven interior back wall and is covered with a glass shield held by a wire holder. The glass shield must be in place whenever the oven is in use.

A CAUTION

Be sure the range is unplugged and all parts are COOL before replacing oven light. Wear a leatherfaced glove for protection against possible broken glass.

1.    Turn electrical power off at the main source or unplug the range.

2.    Press wire holder to one side to release the glass shield that covers the light bulb (See Fig.2)

3.    Replace light with a new 40 watt appliance bulb.

4.    Replace glass shield over bulb and snap wire holder back into place.

5.    Turn power on at the main source (or plug the appliance in).

6.    The clock will then need to be reset. To reset, see Setting clock in this Use & Care Guide.


Removing and replacing the lift-off oven door A CAUTION
