3 IMPORTANT

Read and follow the below instructions and precautions for unpacking, installing, and servicing your

appliance:

•    Remove all tape and packaging before using the appliance. Destroy the carton and plastic bags after unpacking the appliance. Never allow children to play with packaging material. Do not remove the wiring label and other literature attached to the range. Do not remove model/ serial number plate.

•    Proper Installation—Be sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician in accordance with the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No. 70 latest edition and local electrical code requirements. In Canada, install in accordance with CSA Standard C22.1, Canadian Electrical code, Part 1-latest edition, and local electrical code requirements. Install only per installation instructions provided in the literature package for this range.

•    User Servicing—Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the manuals. All other servicing should be done only by a qualified technician. This reduces the risk of personal injury and damage to the oven.

•    Ask your dealer to recommend a qualified technician and an authorized repair service. Know how to disconnect the power to the appliance at the circuit breaker or fuse box in case of an emergency.

•    Never modify or alter the construction of an oven by removing the leveling legs, panels, wire covers, anti-tip brackets/screws, or any other part of the oven.

•    Remove the oven door from any unused oven if it is to be stored or discarded.

•    Be sure to have an appropriate foam-type fire extinguisher available, visible, and easily accessible located near the appliance.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR

COOKTOP

•    Know which knob or key controls each surface heating area. Place cookware with food on the cooking area before turning it on. Turn the cooking area off before removing the cookware.

•    Use proper pan size. This appliance is equipped with one or more surface units of different sizes. Select cookware with flat bottoms that match the surface unit heating element. The use of undersized cookware may expose a portion of the heating element to direct contact and may result in the ignition of clothing or other items. Using the proper cookware on the cooking zone will improve efficiency.

•    To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spills due to unintentional contact with the utensil, the utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend over other cooking areas.

•    Never leave surface elements unattended. Boilovers may cause smoking and greasy spills may ignite. A pan that has boiled dry could be damaged and may damage the cooktop.

•    Improper cookware may break due to sudden changes in temperature. Check the cookware manufacturer’s recommendations for cooktop use.

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

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

•    Do Not Use Decorative Surface Burner Covers. If an element is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover will become hot and possibly melt.

Burns will occur if the hot covers are touched. Damage may also be done to the cooktop.

•    Do not use Searing grill on the cooktop. The Searing grill is not designed for use on the cooktop. Doing so may result in a fire.


•    Do not immerse or soak removable surface heating elements. Surface heating elements should never be immersed in water. Heating elements clean themselves during normal operation.

•    Make sure drip pans or drip bowls are in place. Absence of these pans or bowls during cooking may subject wiring or components underneath to damage.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR

OVEN

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

•    Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. Touching surfaces in this area when the oven is on may cause severe burns. Do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or near the oven vent. These items can 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 in hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating element in oven. 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 cookware and utensils before moving the rack.

•    Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. Broiler pans and inserts allow dripping fat to drain 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 oven bottom or any other part of the appliance. Only use aluminum as recommended for baking if used as a cover placed on the food. Any other use of protective liners or aluminum foil may result in a risk of electric shock or fire or a short circuit.

•    Do not cook food on the oven bottom. Always cook in proper cookware and always use the over racks.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING

YOUR OVEN

A CAUTION

Before manually cleaning any part of the appliance, be sure all controls are turned off and the range is cool. Cleaning a hot oven can cause burns.

•    Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area around each surface element. Do not allow grease to accumulate. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning hoods.

•    Always follow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for use of kitchen cleaners and aerosols. 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.

•    Do not touch a hot oven light bulb with a damp cloth. Doing so could cause the bulb to break. Disconnect the appliance or shut off the power to the appliance before removing and replacing the bulb.


A WARNING

Avoid fire hazard or electrical shock. Do not use an

adapter plug or an extension cord, or remove grounding prong from the power cord. Failure to follow this warning may cause serious injury, fire, or death.

SELF-CLEANING OVENS

•    Clean only the parts listed in this manual. Before using self-clean, remove the broiler pan, any food, utensils, and cookware 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 appliance.

•    Do not clean the oven door gasket. The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the gasket.

•    Some birds are extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-clean cycle of any oven. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.

See the installation instructions packaged with this appliance for complete installation and grounding instructions.

• Remove oven racks. Oven racks color will change if left in the oven during a self-cleaning cycle.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

 

For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.

For models factory-equipped with a power cord:

For maximum safety, the power cord must be plugged into an electrical outlet that is the correct voltage, is correctly polar-ized, and is properly grounded in accordance with local codes.

For ovens to be wired into a junction box:

It is the personal responsibility of the consumer to have the appropriate outlet with the correct, properly grounded wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician. See the installation instructions packaged with this appliance for complete installation and grounding instructions.

SURFACE CONTROLS

Using Proper Cookware

The size and type of cookware used will influence the setting needed for best cooking results. Be sure to follow the recommendations for using proper cookware as illustrated in Figure 1 and Figure 2.

Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface heating element. Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the cookware (See Figure 1).

 

 

 

 

•    Flat bottom and straight sides.

•    Tight fitting lids.

•    Weight of handle does not tilt cookware. Cookware is well balanced.

•    Cookware size matches the amount of food to be prepared and the size of the surface element.

 

 

 

Check for level-bottomed cookware

 

Figure 1:

 

Made of material that conducts heat well.

Easy to clean.

Always match cookware bottom to element diameter.

 

 

Cookware Material Types

The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly heat is transferred from the surface element to the pan bottom. The most popular materials available are:

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

Copper – Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily (See Aluminum).

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.

 

Figure 2:    Troubleshooting guide

 

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

Glass – Slow heat conductor.

Home Canning

Be sure to read and observe all the following points when

home canning with your appliance:

•    Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning. Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom.

•    Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no ridges that radiate from the bottom center when home canning. Heat is spread more evenly when the bottom surface is flat.

•    Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed 1 inch beyond the surface element markings or burner. It is recommended to use smaller diameter canners on electric coil and ceramic glass cooktops and to center canners on the burner grates.

•    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.

•    Check with the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) Web site and be sure to read all the information they have available as well as follow their recommendations for home canning procedures.

•    Use tested recipes and follow instructions carefully. Check with your local Cooperative Agricultural Extension Service or a manufacturer of glass jars for the latest canning information.

•    It is best to can small amounts and light loads.

•    Do not leave water bath or pressure canners on high heat for an extended amount of time.

•    Alternate surface units between each batch to allow the units and surrounding surfaces to cool down. Try to avoid canning on the same burner unit all day.

Element on indicator lights

Your range is equipped with one or more element on indicator lights located on the control panel just above the surface control knobs (See Figure 3). The element on indicator light will glow when a surface element is turned on. A quick glance at this indicator light after cooking is an easy check to be sure all surface controls are turned off.

element on indicator light

3 IMPORTANT

Never place or straddle a cooking utensil over two different surface cooking elements at the same time unless the utensil is designed for that purpose. This can cause uneven heating results. This can also cause the ceramic cooktop to fracture (for ceramic cooktop models only).


SURFACE CONTROLS

Operating Surface Elements To operate surface elements:


3 IMPORTANT

Do not allow aluminum foil, or any material that can melt to make contact with the surface element.



^ NOTE

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


1.    Place correctly sized cooking utensil on surface element.

2.    Push in and turn the surface control knob in either direction to the desired setting. Start most surface cooking on a higher setting and then turn to a lower setting to finish. The surface control knobs do not have to be set exactly on a particular spot. Use the graphics provided as a guide and adjust the control knob as needed (See Figure 4). Each surface element provides a constant amount of heat at each setting. For more information, see the suggested surface element settings in Table 1.

3.    When cooking is complete, turn the surface element OFF before removing the cookware.

Table 1:    Suggested surface element settings9

Settings

Types of Cooking

High (HI – 9) Start most foods, bring water to a boil, pan broiling
Medium high (7 – 8) Continue a rapid boil, fry, deep fat fry
Medium (5 – 6) Maintain a slow boil, thicken sauces and gravies or steam vegetables
Medium Low (2 – 4) Keep foods cooking, poach, stew
Low (LO – 1) Keep warm, melt, simmer

a.The suggested settings are based when cooking with medium-weight aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using other types of pans.


BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS

Type of oven racks


To Remove – Pull the oven rack straight forward until it reaches the stop position. Lift up front of oven rack slightly and slide out.

To Replace – Place the oven rack on the rack guides on both sides of oven walls. Tilt the front of oven rack upward slightly and slide the oven rack back into place. Be sure oven racks are level before using.

Oven vent location

The oven vent is located through the upper front trim and visible when the oven door is open. 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 oven vent. Doing so may cause cooking failures, fires, or damage to the range. Steam or moisture may appear near the oven vent. This is normal.

Removing, replacing, and arranging flat or offset oven racks

•    Flat oven racks (or the flat handle oven rack) may be used for most cooking needs and may be placed in most oven rack positions.

•    The offset oven rack (some models) provides additional stepdown positions from the standard flat rack design. The offset design positions the base of the rack about 1/ 2 of a rack position lower than the flat rack and may be used in most oven rack 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.

For best air circulation when baking, allow a space of 2-4 inches (5-10 cm) around the cookware for proper air circulation. 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 cookware for even heat to reach the food.

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, they will lose their special coating properties, may turn blue, and no longer slide in and out of the oven cavity easily. If your model came with porcelain-enameled racks, those may be left in the oven during the self-clean cycle.

This is normal and indicates that the oven is cycling to maintain the selected baking temperature. To cancel baking press clear off.

Baking Tips

For best bake results:

•    Fully preheat the oven before baking items like cookies, cakes, biscuits, and breads.

•    When using any single rack, position the rack so that the food is in the center of the oven.

•    For best results when baking cakes using two oven racks, place racks in positions 2 and 4 (See Figure 8).

•    When baking using two oven racks, position cookware as shown in Figure 9. Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) of space between cookware for proper air circulation.

•    Dark or dull bakeware absorbs more heat than shiny bakeware. It may be necessary to reduce oven temperature and cook time to prevent overbrowning of some foods. Dark bakeware is recommended for pies. Shiny bakeware is recommended for cakes, cookies, and muffins.

•    For batter and dough-based baked goods such as cakes, pastries, and breads, use the convection function for best results.

Setting bake time

The bake time key sets the amount of time needed for baking. The oven will turn on immediately and stop automatically after the set bake time ends.

To program the oven to begin baking immediately and to shut off automatically (timed bake):

A CAUTION

Food Poisoning Hazard. Do not let food sit for more than one hour before or after cooking. Doing so can result in food poisoning or sickness. Foods that can easily spoil such as milk, eggs, fish, meat, or poultry should be chilled in the refrigerator first.

Self-Cleaning

A self-cleaning oven cleans itself with 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.

While the oven is in operation, the oven heats to temperature much higher than those used in normal cooking. Sounds of metal expansion and contraction are normal. Oder is also normal because the food soil is being removed. Smoke may appear through the oven vent.


3 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 (Figure 11). The 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 materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so could cause damage.

•    Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils, and any aluminum foil. These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures and will melt.

•    Completely remove all oven racks and any accessories. 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 easily.

•    Remove any excessive spills. Any spills on the oven bottom should be wiped-up and removed before starting the self-cleaning cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spills 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. These areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water. These areas are shown in white (Figure 11).

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.

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.

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.

A CAUTION

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.

Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom, or any other part of the range with aluminum foil. Doing so will destroy heat distribution, produce poor baking results, and cause permanent damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil will melt to the interior surface of the oven).


To set a self-clean cycle or a delayed start self- To stop or interrupt a self-clean cycle (once it has clean cycle:    been activated):

6.    As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven lock will begin to close automatically and the door locked indicator light will flash. Do not open the oven door while the light is flashing (allow about 15 seconds for the oven door to lock).

7.    CLn will appear in the display during the self-clean cycle, and the door locked light will glow until the self cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven temperature has cooled.

1.    Press clear off.

2.    Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 hour and the door locked light has turned off, the oven door can be opened.

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

^ NOTE

Whenever the self-clean feature is active, you may check the amount of time remaining in the self-clean cycle by pressing the clean key. Remember the range door cannot be opened until the range has cooled sufficiently. You will need to add about 1 hour to the time displayed before you can use the range for cooking.

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


When the self-clean cycle has completed:

1.    The time of day will appear in the display window, and the Clean key and door locked light will continue to glow.

2.    Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 hour and the door locked light has gone out, the oven door may be opened.

CARE AND CLEANING
Cleaning Various Parts of Your Wall Oven
Before cleaning any part of the oven, be sure all controls are turned off and the oven is cool. Remove spills and any heavy soiling as soon as possible. Regular cleaning will reduce the number of major cleaning later.

Surface Type

Recommendation

Aluminum and Vinyl

Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.

Painted and plastic control knobs Painted body parts

Painted decorative trims

Use a soft cloth and clean with mild dish detergent and water or a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry and polish with a soft cloth. Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth first. Do not spray liquids directly on the oven control and display area. Do not use large amounts of water on the control panel – excess water on the control area may cause damage to the appliance. Do not use other liquid cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or paper towels – they will damage the finish. 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.

Stainless Steel

Your oven finish may be made with stainless steel (some models). Clean the stainless 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 abrasive, chlorides, chlorine or ammonia. It is recommended to use mild dish soap and water or a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar. Do not use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners from the surface as bluish stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.

Porcelain enamel broiler pan and insert (available by mail order)

Door liner and body parts

Gentle scouring with a soapy 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 scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating.

Oven racks

Oven racks must be removed from oven cavity. Clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following manufacturer’s instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry. After cleaning the racks, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of baby oil or salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack positions).

Oven door

Use soap and 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 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-clean models, the oven door gasket is made of a woven material which is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or remove this gasket.

To Remove and Replace Surface Elements and Drip Bowls (some models)

To Remove

1.    Lift up edge of surface element across from terminal end just enough to clear the edge of the drip bowl.

2.    Gently slide the surface element out of the terminal plug.

3.    Lift the drip bowl up and out.

To Replace

1.    Line up the opening of the drip bowl with the terminal plug.

2.    Hold the surface element as level as possible and slide the terminal end through the opening and into the terminal plug.

3.    Be sure the surface element is level to reduce the hazard of pans sliding off the element.

To Raise the Top for Cleaning

A CAUTION

When lowering the lift-up cooktop, grasp the sides with fingertips only. Be careful not to pinch fingers. Do not drop or bend the cooktop when raising or lowering. This could damage the surface.

A CAUTION

Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is cool.


A CAUTION

Be careful not to bend terminal ends when replacing elements after cleaning.


2.    Clean underneath using a clean cloth and hot, soapy water.

3.    Gently lower the cooktop into the frame. If your model has a support rod, lower the support rod, then gently lower the cooktop into the frame.


Porcelain enamel cooktop cleaning instructions (some models)

Correct and consistent cleaning is essential to maintaining

your porcelain enamel cooktop. If food spills and grease

spatters are not removed, they may burn onto the surface of

the cooktop and cause permanent discoloration.

Daily cleaning for normal soil:

1.    Allow cooktop surface to cool.

2.    Wipe off spills and spatters using a clean paper towel or a clean cloth with warm, soapy water.

3.    If needed, use a soapy steel wool pad or other mild household cleaners.

4.    Be sure to rinse off the cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating.

Daily cleaning for heavy, burned-on soil:

1.    Allow cooktop surface to cool.

2.    Use a soap filled scouring pad with warm water or cover heavily soiled spots with a solution of clear water and ammonia. Scour gently. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth.

3.    If any soil remains, apply a few drops of a recommended cooktop cleaning cream on the spots and rub gently using a clean damp cloth or scouring pad. Buff with a dry cloth until all soil and cream are removed. Frequent cleaning with the cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective coating which helps in preventing scratches and abrasions.

Daily cleaning for sugary spill overs:

Sugary spills can chemically damage your cooktop surface.

Therefore, you must begin cleaning the spills while the

cooktop is still hot. Use caution when following the steps

below.

1.    Turn off all surface units and remove all pans immediately.

Drip bowls are pitting or rusting.

 

Drip bowls turning color or distorted out of shape.

 

Foods with acids, such as tomatoes, if allowed to stand in/on bowls will cause corrosion. Remove and wash drip bowls as soon as possible after spillover. Houses along sea coast are exposed to salt air. Protect bowls as much as possible from direct exposure to salt air.

Bottom surface of cookware extends beyond surface elements and touches cooktop surface. This can cause high enough temperatures to discolor the drip bowls. Do not use cookware of this type. Pan sizes should be matched to the size of the element.
