• Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or serious burns to children and adults.
To check if the anti-tip bracket is installed properly, use both arms and grasp the rear edge of range back. Carefully attempt to tilt range forward. When properly installed, the range should not tilt forward.
Refer to the anti-tip bracket installation instructions supplied with your range for proper installation.
• Remove the oven door from any unused range if it is to be stored or discarded.
•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 may reduce the risk of personal injury and damage to the range.
• DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE BURNERS, AREAS NEAR THESE BURNERS, OVEN BURNERS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF THE OVEN. Both surface and oven burners may be hot even though flames are not visible. Areas near surface burners 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 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— smother the fire with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.

or grease may catch fire if allowed to become too hot.
• 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.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR COOKTOP
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.
• 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.
broiler pan and its insert allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler.
• 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 INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING
• 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.
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.
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.
See the INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS packaged with this range for complete installation and grounding instructions.
Personal injury or death from electrical shock may occur if the range is not installed by a qualified installer or electrician.
Any additions, changes or conversions required in order for this appliance to satisfactorily meet the application needs must be made by a qualified technician.
If your gas range model is designed to allow for L.P. conversion, the L.P. conversion kit may be obtained from your local appliance dealer and should be installed by a qualified service technician. Before installing the kit be sure to follow the L.P. Installation Instructions carefully.
Avoid fire hazard or electrical shock. Do not use an adapter plug, an extension cord, or remove grounding prong from electrical power cord. Failure to follow this warning can cause serious injury, fire or death.
This appliance is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug for your protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded receptacle. DO NOT cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug.
For personal safety, the range must be properly grounded. For maximum safety, the power cord must be plugged into an electrical outlet that is correctly polarized and properly grounded.
If a 2-prong wall receptacle is the only available outlet, it is the personal responsibility of the consumer to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician.
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.
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).
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 positions.
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 food.
Broiling meats See broil
Cookies, cakes, pies, biscuits & muffins 2 or 3
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
For best cooking results, cookware should have flat bottoms that rests level on the burner grate. Before using cookware, check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the cookware (Fig. 1).
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 under cooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the food will neither brown or cook properly.
Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt they may damage the cooktop.
High flame Start most foods; bring water to a
boil; pan broiling.
Medium flame Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces, gravies; steaming.
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.
* These settings are based for medium-weight metal or aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using other types of pans.
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.
Your gas appliance may be equipped with 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.
The smaller simmer burner (some models) is best suited for simmering delicate sauces, etc.
The standard size (9,500 BTU) burners may be used for most surface cooking needs.
The larger (quick boil – some models) burner or burners are best used for bringing large quantities of liquid to temperature or when preparing larger quantities of food.
1. Place cooking utensil on center of surface burner grate. Make sure the 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.
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 range cooktop.
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.
• 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.
• Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more quickly.
• Use the highest heat setting when first bringing the water to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest possible setting to maintain that boil.
