A WARNING

•    Storage in or on appliance—to avoid a fire haza rd, f lamma ble mater ia Is shou Id not be stored in an oven, near surface units or in the storage drawer, warmer drawer or lower oven. This includes paper, plastic and cloth items, such as cookbooks, plasticware and towels, as well as flammable liquids. Do not store explosives, such as aerosol cans, on or near the range.

•    DO NOT LEAVE CHILDREN ALONE—to avoid injuries or burns children should not be left alone or unattended in the area where the range is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the range including the storage drawer, lower broiler drawer, lower oven or warmer drawer.

A CAUTION

•    Do not store items of interest to children in the cabinets above a range or on the backguard of the range. Children climbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.

•    Do not touch surface heating units or surface cooking elements, areas near these units or elements, or interior surfaces of oven. Both surface heating and oven heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near surface cooking units may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials touch these areas until they have had sufficient time to cool. Among these areas are the cook top, surfaces facing the cook top, the oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings, oven door and oven door window.

•    Wear proper apparel — loose-fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while using the appliance. Do not let clothing or other flammable materials contact hot surfaces.

•    Do not use water or flour on grease fires — flour may be explosive. Smother the fire with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.

•    When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat

or grease may catch fire if allowed to become too hot.

A CAUTION

•    Use dry potholders—moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do

not let potholders touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of a potholder.

•    Do not heat unopened food containers – buildup of pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.

3 IMPORTANT

Do not attempt to operate the range during a power failure. If the power fails, always turn off the range. If the range is not turned off and the power resumes, the range will begin to operate again. Once the power resumes, reset the clock and oven function.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN

•    Use care when opening oven door , lower oven door or warmer drawer (if equipped)—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 under the left rear surface element if your model is equipped with coil elements. The oven vent is located below the backguard for models equipped with ceramic-glass cook tops. 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 interior 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.

4


SELF-CLEANING OVENS

•    Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts listed in this Use & Care Manual. Before self-cleaning 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 element. 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.

FOR CERAMIC-GLASS COOK TOP MODELS

•    Do not cook on broken cook top—If cook top should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cook top and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately. 1

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR COOKTOP

•    Know which knob controls each surface heating unit. Place a pan of food on the unit before turning it on, and turn the unit off before removing the pan.

•    Use proper pan size—This appliance is equipped with one or more surface units of different sizes. Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating element. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the heating element to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing.

Proper relationship of utensil to element will also improve efficiency.

•    Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend over adjacent surface elements—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 units.

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

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

•    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.

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.

Oven vent location

The oven vent is located under the left side of 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.

oven vent location

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.

Removing, replacing & arranging racks

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).

Types of oven racks

The flat oven rack or flat handle oven rack (some models) may be used for most cooking needs..

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 postions.

To maximize oven cooking space place the bottom oven rack (some models) in the lowest rack position for baking and when 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 pans and cookware in the oven for even heat to reach around the cookware (See Fig. 1).

Baking layer cakes with 1 or 2 oven racks

For best results when baking cakes using 2 oven racks, place cookware on rack positions 2 & 5. For best results when using a single oven flat rack, place cookware on rack positions 2, 3 or 4.

BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS

About the ceramic glass cooktop

The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements located below the surface of the glass. The design of the ceramic cooktop outlines the area of the surface element underneath. Be sure to match the pan size with the diameter of the element outline on the cooktop and only flat-bottomed cookware should be used.

The type and size of cookware, the number of surface elements in use and their settings are all factors that will affect the amount of heat that will spread to areas beyond the surface elements. The areas surrounding the elements may become hot enough to cause burns.

About the radiant surface elements

The element temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the temperature rises, the element will glow red. To maintain the selected setting the element will cycle ON and OFF. The heating element retains enough heat to provide a uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle.

For more efficient surface cooking, turn the surface control OFF several minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to complete the cooking process.

on & hot surface indicator lights

Your appliance is equipped with two different types of surface element control indicator lights located on the control panel — the on indicator and the hot surface indicator lights.

The on indicator light (See Fig. 2) will glow when any surface element is turned ON. A quick glance at this indicator light after cooking is an easy check to be sure the surface controls are turned OFF. The hot surface indicator light (See Fig. 3) will glow when any surface cooking area becomes hot and will remain on until the glass cooktop has cooled to a MODERATE level.

on

indicator light

1^ NOTES

   Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the surface element to cycle ON and OFF, even at the HI setting. This helps to prevent damage to the ceramic smoothtop. Cycling at the HI setting is normal and will occur more often if the cookware is too small for the radiant element or if the cookware bottom is not flat.

•    Be sure to read the detailed instructions for ceramic glass cooktop maintenance and cleaning in the Care & Cleaning and Before You Call checklist sections of this Use & Care Manual.

Types of cooktop elements

 

Using proper cookware

 

The ceramic glass cooktop has radiant surface elements located below the surface of the glass cooktop. The patterns on the ceramic glass will outline the size and type of element available.

The single radiant element will have one round outline pattern shown (keep warm zone is designed to keep food warm only – on some models).

The dual radiant element (some models) has two outline patterns. You may set just the smaller inner portion as a single element or both inner and outer portions of the element may be set to heat together. The control knobs for these element types are shown below (See Fig. 1).

 

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 Figs. 2 & 3.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cookware material types

The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly heat will transfer from the element to the cookware bottom. The most popular cookware materials available are:

Aluminum – Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware resists staining & pitting). If aluminum pans slide across the ceramic cooktop, they may leave metal marks which will resemble scratches. Remove these marks immediately.

Copper – Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily. May leave metal marks on ceramic glass (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. Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.

Porcelain-enamel on metal – Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material. Porcelain-enamel coating must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktops.

Glass – Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass.

 

* *

•    Flat bottom and straight sides.

•    Tight fitting lids.

•    Weight of handle does not tilt pan. Pan is well balanced.

•    Pan sizes match the amount of food to be prepared and the size of the surface element.

•    Made of a material that conducts heat well.

•    Easy to clean.

•    Always match pot diameter to element size.

 

 

• Pan larger than cooking area marked on cooktop by more than one-half inch or 12mm.

 

 

 

 

3 IMPORTANT

Do not place empty aluminum, glass or porcelain-enamel coated cookware on a hot ceramic cooktop! The melting point of some cookware may be reached if left heating on the cooktop when empty. The cookware can bond to the ceramic cooktop. If the cookware melts it will damage the cooktop! Be sure to follow all the manufacturer’s suggestions when using any type of cookware on the ceramic cooktop.

Single radiant surface elements
To operate the single radiant element:

1.    Place correctly sized cookware on single radiant surface element.

2.    Push in and turn the surface control knob in either direction (Fig. 2) to the desired setting (Refer to the Suggested radiant surface element settings table Fig. 1). Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking. 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 Fig. 2). Each surface element provides a constant amount of heat at each setting. A glowing red surface heating area extending beyond the bottom edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is too small for the surface heating area.

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

Suggested radiant surface element settings

The suggested settings found in Fig.1 below are based

when cooking with medium-weight aluminum pans with

lids. Settings may vary when using other types of pans.

Fig. 1

1^ NOTES

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

   The on indicator light will glow when one or more elements are turned ON. A quick glance at this indicator light when finished cooking is an easy check to be sure all control knobs are turned OFF. The hot surface indicator light will continue to glow AFTER the control knob is turned to the OFF position and will remain on until the heating surface area has cooled sufficiently.


Dual radiant surface elements (some models)

Symbols on the backguard will help choose which portion of the dual radiant element to set. The o symbol indicates a setting for the inner coil only. The    symbol indicates a

setting for both inner and outer coils.

To operate a dual radiant element:

1.    Place correctly sized cookware on dual radiant surface element.

2.    Push in and turn the surface control knob clockwise (See Fig. 1) to begin heating both the inner and outer portions of the dual element. If only the inner heating portion is needed for smaller cookware, push in and turn the knob counter-clockwise to start (See Fig. 2).

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

Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking. The surface control knobs do not have to be set exactly on a particular mark. Use the marks as a guide and adjust the control knob as needed. A glowing red surface heating area extending beyond the bottom edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is too small for the surface heating area.

You may switch from either single or dual element setting at any time during cooking. See Suggested radiant surface element settings table on previous page.

A CAUTION

   Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned off. The glass surface may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.

•    Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on top of the range 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 surface elements.

Keep warm (some models)

The purpose of the keep warm zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Use the keep warm feature to keep cooked foods for serving such as; vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and oven-safe dinner plates.

Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food on the keep warm zone. All food placed on the keep warm zone should be covered with a lid to maintain quality.

For best results, when warming pastries or breads, the cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape.

Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very difficult to clean.

Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use on the keep warm zone.

Setting the keep warm control:

1.    Push the keep warm control knob in and turn the knob in either direction (See Fig. 1). The temperatures are approximate (See Fig. 2), and are designated by hi and lo. However, the control may be set at any position between hi and lo for different levels of warming.

2.    When ready to serve, turn the keep warm zone control knob to OFF. The keep warm zone will remain warm until the indicator light turns OFF.

A CAUTION

   Unlike the surface elements, the keep warm zone will not glow red when it is hot. To avoid burns always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from the cooktop including the keep warm zone as cookware and plates will be hot.

   Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned off. The glass surface may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.

•    Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on the 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 surface elements.

3 IMPORTANT

Do not allow aluminum foil, or ANY material that can

melt to ma ke contact with the ceram ic g lass cooktop.

If these items melt on the cooktop they can damage the

ceramic cooktop.


SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS 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 home 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).

   Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no ridges that radiate from the bottom center when home canning using a ceramic cooktop.

•    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.

A CAUTION

   Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned off. The glass surface may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.

•    Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on the 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 surface elements.

3 IMPORTANT

Do not allow aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt to ma ke contact with the ceram ic g lass cooktop.

If these items melt on the cooktop they will damage the ceramic cooktop.

   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.

3 IMPORTANT

Quick bake (some models)

Benefits of the quick bake feature

—    Foods cook more evenly

—    Multiple rack baking

—    No special pans or bakeware needed

Quick bake uses a fan to circulate the oven’s heat uniformly and continuously around the oven. This improved heat distribution allows for fast, even cooking and browning results. It also provides better baking performance when using two racks at the same time.

Heated air flows around the food from all sides, sealing in juices and flavors. Meats cooked with quick bake are juicer. Poultry is crisp on the outside while staying tender and moist on the inside. Breads and pastry brown more evenly. Most foods baked in a standard oven can be cooked faster and more evenly with quick bake.

Suggestions for quick bake When 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 (See Fig. 1).

When roasting

   Preheating is not necessary when roasting foods using

quick bake.

   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.

^ NOTES

   When using quick bake cook time reductions may vary depending on the amount and type of food being cooked.

   Layer cakes will have better results using the bake feature.

   If the oven door is opened when quick bake is active, the fan will stop rotating until the oven door is closed.

Setting quick bake

The oven may be programmed for quick bake at any temperature from 170°F to 550°F (77°C to 287°C). The factory preset automatic bake temperature is 350°F (177°C).

To set quick bake:

1.    Press quick bake. “—” appears in the display.

2.    Within 5 seconds, press the A or V. The display will show “350°F (177°C).” By pressing and holding the A or V , the temperature can then be adjusted

in 5°F increments (1°C if the control is set to display Celsius).

3.    As soon as the A or V keypad is released, the oven

will begin heating to the selected temperature. When the displayed temperature reaches the desired baking temperature, the preheat indicator light will turn OFF and the control will beep 3 times.

4.    To cancel quick bake, press clear off keypad.

To change the oven temperature after quick bake has started

1.    Press quick bake key pad.

2.    If necessary, press the A or V pad to increase or decrease the oven set temperature .


Setting broil

Use the broil feature to cook meats that require direct exposure to radiant heat for optimum browing results. when broiling always remember to arrange the oven racks while oven is still cool. Position the rack as suggested in the broil settings table (See Figs. 1 & 4).

To set Broil

1.    Arrange the oven rack while oven is still cool.

2.    Press broil. “–“will appear in display.

3.    Press and hold the A or V until the desired broil setting level appears in the display. Press the A for HI

broil or the V for LO broil. Most foods may be broiled

at the HI broil setting. Select the LO broil setting to avoid excess browning or drying of foods that should be cooked to the well-done stage.

4.    For optimum results, preheat oven for 5 minutes before adding food.

5.    Place the insert on broil pan (if equipped), then place food on broil pan insert (if equipped – See Fig. 2).

6.    Place broiler pan and insert on oven rack.

7.    Keep the oven door open at the broil stop position when broiling (See Fig. 3).

8.    Broil food on one side until desired browness is obtained. Turn food and broil on other side.

9.    When finished broiling remove food items and press clear off.

1^ NOTE

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

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. 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 the best results when broiling ONLY use Electrolux Home Products, Inc. approved broil pan & insert.

Adjusting the oven temperature

Your appliance has been factory calibrated and tested to ensure an accurate baking temperature. For the first few uses, follow your recipe times and temperature recommendations carefully. If you think the oven is cooking too hot or too cool for your recipe times, you can adjust the control so the oven cooks hotter or cooler than the temperature displayed.

To adjust oven temperature

1.    Press bake key pad.

2.    Set the temperature to 550°F (287°C) by pressing and holding the A keypad.

3.    Within 2 seconds, press and hold bake keypad until the 2 digit display appears. Release bake keypad. The display now indicates the amount of degrees offset between the original factory temperature setting and the current temperature setting. If the oven control has the original factory calibration, the display will read “0.”

4.    The temperature can now be adjusted up or down 35°F (19°C), in 5°F increments by pressing and holding the

A or V keypad. Adjust until the desired amount of

offset appears in the display. When lowering the oven temperature, a minus sign () will appear before the number to indicate that the oven will be cooler by the displayed amount of degrees.

5.    When you have made the desired adjustment, press clear off to go back to the time of day display.

Operating the oven light

The interior oven light will automatically turn ON when the oven door is opened.

Press the light keypad to turn the interior oven light ON and OFF whenever the oven door is closed.

The interior oven light is located at the upper left rear wall of the oven interior 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.

To change the interior oven light, see “Changing the oven light” in the Care & Cleaning section.


1^ NOTES

   Any oven temperature offset made will not affect the broil or clean feature temperatures.

   If the oven display has been set to display Celsius, adjustments made will be in 1°C increments with each

press of the A or V keypad.

•    DO NOT USE oven thermometers such as those found in grocery stores to check the temperature settings inside the oven. These oven thermometers may vary as much as 20 to 40 degrees from actual temperatures.

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.

3 IMPORTANT

Read before starting self-clean

•    Completely remove ALL OVEN RACKS and ANY ACCESSORIES FROM OVEN CAVITY to avoid possible damage to oven racks. If the oven racks are not removed they may discolor.

   Remove ALL items from the oven and cooktop including cookware, utensils and ANY ALUMINUM FOIL. Aluminum foil will not withstand high temperatures from a self-clean cycle.

•    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 may cause permanent damage to the oven interior. During self-clean temperatures in the oven can become hot enough to melt aluminum foil.

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

   Clean any soil from the outer oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door gasket and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. These areas (See Fig. 1) heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean using soap and water before starting self-clean.

   Remove any excessive spillovers. Any spills on the oven bottom should be wiped-up and removed before starting self-clean. 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.

•    DO NOT clean the oven door gasket (See Fig. 1). 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 to the door gasket.

A CAUTION

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

   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 when self-clean is active. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution when opening the door after the self-Cleaning cycle is completed. The oven may still be

VERY HOT.

   The oven bake and broil elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned OFF. The elements may still be hot and burns may occur if these elements are touched before they have cooled sufficiently.

(For models that have a visible bottom bake element ONLY): To help remove excessive spills from the oven bottom, the lower element may be tilted up from the front of the element.

Wait until the oven is completely cool and remove the bottom oven rack before attempting to raise the element. Do not to raise the lower element more than 4 or 5 inches from the resting position.


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

1.    Remove all items from the oven, cooktop, and all oven racks from the oven and be sure the oven door is completely closed. Be sure the oven control displays the correct time of day and adjust if needed.

NOTE

To start a self-clean cycle immediately without delay, skip steps 2 & 3 in the instructions provided below.

2.    Press the start time keypad. The “:” in the time of day display will flash.

3.    Press and hold the A keypad to scroll to the time to start a delayed self-clean cycle. Release the keypad when the desired start time is displayed.

4.    Press the clean keypad. “—” appears in the display.

5.    To start press the A or V keypad once. “3:00” will

appear in the display indicating that a 3 hour self-clean time is set. To change to a shorter 2 hour self-clean

time press the V keypad once (“2:00” will appear in the display indicating a 2 hour clean time is desired).

3 IMPORTANT

Once the oven control is set for clean, the motor driven lock will begin to automatically lock the oven

door. The “door locked” indicator light will flash while

the oven door is locking. DO NOT open the oven door while this indicator light is flashing (allow about 15 seconds for the oven door to completely lock).

6.    “CLn” will appear in the oven display during the selfclean cycle and the “door locked” indicator light will remain ON until the self-cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven temperature has cooled.

When the self-clean cycle has completed:

1.    The time of day will appear in the oven display and the “clean” and “door locked” indicator lights will continue to glow.

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

Stopping or interrupting a self-clean cycle

If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a selfcleaning cycle once it has been activated:

1.    Press the clear off keypad.

2.    Once the oven has cooled down (about 1 hour) and the “door locked” indicator light has turned off, the oven door may be opened.

3.    If needed, the self-clean may be restarted.

A CAUTION

   To avoid possible burns use care when opening the oven door after the self-cleaning cycle is finished.

Stand to the side of the oven when opening the oven door to allow any hot air or steam to escape.

•    DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution and avoid possible burns when opening the oven door after the self-cleaning cycle has completed. The oven may still be VERY HOT.

1^ NOTES

   Whenever the clean feature is active you may check the amount of time remaining in the self-clean cycle by pressing the clean keypad once. Remember the oven door will not unlock until the range has cooled sufficiently. You will need to add about 1 hour to the time displayed before you can use the oven for cooking again.

   After the oven has completely cooled and the oven door has unlocked, wipe away any residue or powdered ash from the oven interior using a damp cloth or paper towel.

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 30-60 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 (some models), turn to OFF position; grasp firmly and pull knob straight off the shaft. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both knob and shaft; then push knob into place.

Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls OFF, activate controls lock (if equipped) and remove any knobs from panel (some models). Do not use abrasive cleaners on any of these materials; they can scratch. Clean using hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Be sure to squeeze excess water from dishcloth before wiping 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.

Gentle scubbing with a soapy no-scratch cleaning 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 no-scratch cleaning pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth.

Do not allow food spills with high sugar or acid content (milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface; they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.

Remove excessive spillovers from oven bottom before starting self-clean. Clean any soils from oven frame and door liner outside the oven door gasket. For very important prepartion information be sure to read all the instructions in the self-cleaning section.

Do not clean oven racks in oven using the self-clean cycle. Remove oven racks and clean using a mild, abrasive cleaner following manufacturer’s instructions. Thoroughly rinse and 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 a woven material which is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or remove this gasket.

Only use cleaners and polishes that are specifically made for cleaning stainless steel. Always rub in direction of metal grain to avoid damaging. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorine. Do not use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Polish with a lint-free cloth. Always be sure to wipe excess cleaner/polish off from the metal surface as bluish stains may occur during future oven heating that cannot be removed. Clean heavier soils with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse and dry using clean water and a cloth.

See Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance in the Care & Cleaning section.

 

Cooktop maintenance    Cooktop cleaning

3 IMPORTANT

Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop.

Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply some of the glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner supplied with your new appliance. Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or no-scratch cleaning pad. This will make cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. The special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective finish on the glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions.

Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the cooktop can cause metal markings on the cooktop surface. These marks should be removed immediately after the cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning cream. Metal marks can become permanent if not removed prior to future use. Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough or dirty bottoms can mark or scratch the cooktop surface.

To maintain the cooktop appearance:

•    Do not slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop.

•    Do not use cookware with dirt or dirt build up on bottom; replace with clean cookware before using.

•    Do not use your ceramic cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the kitchen.

•    Do not cook foods directly on the cooktop surface without a pan.

•    Do not drop heavy or hard objects on the ceramic glass cooktop, they may cause it to crack.

A CAUTION

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

A WARNING

DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health and can chemically damage the ceramic glass surface.

For light to moderate soil – Apply a few drops of glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a non-abrasive plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue.

For heavy, burned on soil – Apply a few drops of glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a non-abrasive plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad, applying pressure as needed. Do not use the pad you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.

If soils remain, carefully scrape soils with a metal razor blade scraper, holding scraper at a 30 degree angle to the surface. Remove loosened soils with cooktop cleaning cream and buff surface clean.

Removing plastic or foods with a high sugar content:

These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled or melted onto the ceramic cooktop surface. Permanent damage (such as pitting of the cooktop surface) may occur if not removed immediately. After turning the surface elements OFF, use a razor blade scraper or a metal spatula with a mitt and scrape the soil from the hot surface (as illustrated). Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same method for heavy or burned on soils.

3 IMPORTANT

Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use an abrasive cleaning pad. Only use cleaning products that have been specifically designed for cooktops.

DO NOT use the following on the cooktop:

•    Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as metal and some nylon pads. They may scratch the cooktop, making it more difficult to clean.

•    Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach, ammonia or oven cleaners, as they may etch or discolor the cooktop.

•    Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as they can leave soil or lint on the cooktop which can burn and cause discoloration.

Aluminum foil and oven liners A WARNING

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.

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

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

During self-clean the oven temperature can become hot enough to melt aluminum cooking utensils or aluminum foil which could result in damage to the oven interior porcelain finish.

Aluminum foil and the cooktop – Use of aluminum foil on a hot cooktop can damage the ceramic glass. Do not use thin aluminum cooking utensils or allow aluminum foil to touch the ceramic cooktop under ANY circumstances.

Aluminum utensils and the cooktop – Care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans are used on the cooktop. If aluminum pans are allowed to boil dry when using the cooktop, the utensil can become hot enough to be damaged or destroyed, and may fuse to, break or mark the ceramic glass surface, permanently damaging the cooktop surface.

Replacing interior oven light A CAUTION

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

The interior oven light is located at the rear of the oven interior back wall and is covered with a glass shield held by a wire holder.

The glass shield must always be in place to protect and shield the oven interior light whenever using the oven.

To replace the oven light bulb:

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

2.    While holding the glass shield in place, press wire holder to one side to release the glass shield.

3.    Remove glass shield. Replace bulb with a new 40 watt appliance bulb.

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

5.    Turn power back on again at the main source (or plug the range back in).

6.    The clock will then need to be reset. To reset, see

Setting the Clock and Minute Timer in this Use & Care Manual.

Read the following recommendations:

1.    DO NOT close the oven door until all the oven racks are fully positioned into the oven interior.

2.    Do not hit the glass with pots, pans, or any other object.

3.    Scratching, hitting, jarring or stressing the glass may weaken its structure causing an increased risk of breakage at a later time.

Problem

Oven control beeps and displays an F code (fault code) error.

Poor baking results.

Appliance is not level.

Cannot move appliance easily. Appliance must be accessible for service.

Entire appliance does not operate.

Oven portion of appliance does not operate.

Surface element does not heat cookware.

Surface element seems too hot or not hotenough.

Solution

•    The oven control has detected a fault or error condition. Press clear off to clear the display & stop beeping. T ry the bake or broil feature again. If the F code error repeats, remove electric power from appliance, wait 5 minutes and then repower appliance and set clock for the time of day.

Try the bake or broil feature again. If the fault recurs, record fault and call your a uthorized service agent.

•    Allow oven to preheat to the set temperature before placing food in oven.

•    Make sure the proper oven rack position is used. Adjust if needed.

•    Center food in the oven and space pans to allow air to circulate.

•    Try adjusting the recipe’s recommended temperature or baking time.

•    If you feel the oven is too hot or cool, see “Adjusting oven temperature” in

Setting Oven Controls section.

•    Be sure floor is level, strong & stable enough to support the appliance. If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the problem.

•    Cooktop or oven racks not level. To correct, place oven rack in center of oven. Place a spirit level on the oven rack. Adjust by turning leveling legs at base of appliance until the oven rack rests level.

•    Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear not level. Be sure cabinets are square & have sufficient room for appliance clearance.

•    Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly to appliance sides. Contact builder or installer to make appliance accessible.

•    Carpet interferes with appliance. Provide sufficient space so appliance may be lifted over carpet.

•    Make sure power cord is plugged correctly into outlet.

•    Electrical power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric company for service.

•    Service wiring is not complete. Contact your dealer, installing agent or authorized service agent.

•    Be sure the oven controls are set properly for the desired cooking feature. See Setting Oven Controls section in this manual or see “Entire appliance does not operate” in this checklist.

•    The time of day is not set. The time of day must first be set in order to properly operate some of the oven features. See “Setting the clock” in

Setting Oven Controls section.

•    Lightweight or warped pans used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or heavyweight quality cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped pans. Cookware materials and weight of the material affect heating. Heavy & medium-weight pans heat evenly. Because lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily.

•    Incorrect control setting. Be sure the matching control is set for the surface element that you are attempting to use or adjust power level setting.

Problem

Flames inside oven or smoking from oven vent.

Oven smokes excessively when broiling.

Convection does not work (some models)

Convection fan does not rotate (some models)

Self-cleaning cycle does not work.

Soil not completely removed after running a self-cleaning cycle.

Oven light does not work.

Solution

•    Excessive spillovers in oven. For example this may happen for pie spillovers or large amounts of grease left on the oven bottom. Wipe up excessive spillovers before starting oven. If flames or excessive smoke are present see Setting broil instructions in the “Setting Oven Controls” section for additional recommendations.

•    Incorrect setting or food preparation. See Setting broil instructions in “Setting Oven Controls” section.

•    Make sure oven door is open to broil stop position.

•    Food positioned too close to upper element. Reposition the food item lower if necessary to provide proper clearance between the food & the broil element. T ry preheating the oven before boiling.

•    Food not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut remaining fatty edges to prevent curling.

•    Broil pan and insert (some models) wrong side up and grease not draining. Always place insert on top of broil pan with ribs up & slots down to allow excess grease to drip into broil pan.

•    Do not use aluminum foil. Aluminum foil will trap grease, expose grease to high temperatures and increase smoking.

•    Grease has built up on interior oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary if broiling frequently. Old grease or food spatters cause excessive smoking.

•    Oven control not set properly. Review instructions for Quick bake in “Setting Oven Controls” section.

•    See “Convection fan does not rotate” in this checklist.

•    Oven door is open. The convection fan will turn off if oven door is opened when any convection feature is active. Close oven door.

•    Oven control not set properly for self-clean. Follow the instructions provided in the Clean section of this manual.

•    Self-clean cycle was interrupted. Refer to the Clean section for more detailed information.

•    Dirty front oven frame outside oven door gasket area. These areas are not within the self-cleaning area, but get hot enough to burn on residue. Manually clean these areas before starting a self-clean cycle.

•    Excessive food spillovers inside oven. Wipe up spillovers before starting a self-clean cycle.

•    See Replacing the interior oven light in the “Care & Cleaning” section. Also be sure the oven light bulb is secure in the socket.

Problem

Scratches or abrasions on cooktop surface.

Metal marks on the cooktop.

Brown streaks or specks on cooktop.

Areas of discoloration with metallic sheen on cooktop surface.

Solution

•    Coarse particles such as salt or sand between cooktop and utensils can cause scratches. Be sure cooktop surface and bottoms of utensils are clean before usage. Small scratches do not affect cooking and will become less visible with time.

•    Cleaning materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been used. See “Cooktop Cleaning” and “Cooktop Maintenance” in the Care and Cleaning section of this Use & Care Guide.

•    Cookware with rough bottom has been used. Use smooth, flat-bottomed cookware.

•    Sliding or scraping of metal utensils on cooktop surface. Always lift cooking utensils from cooktop surface. Use a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning creme to remove the marks. See “Cooktop Cleaning” and “Cooktop Maintenance” in

the Care & Cleaning section.

•    Spillovers are burnt onto ceramic surface. Use a razor blade scraper to remove soil. See “Cooktop Cleaning” and “Cooktop Maintenance” in the Care & Cleaning section.

•    Mineral deposits from water and food. Remove using a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning creme. Always use cookware with clean, dry bottoms.
