• All ranges can tip.
• Injury to persons could result.
• Install anti-tip device packed with range.
• See Installation Instructions.
Do not attempt to install or operate your appliance until you have read the safety precautions in this manual. Safety items throughout this manual are labeled with a WARNING or CAUTION statement based on the risk type.
•Remove all tape and packaging before using the range. Destroy the carton and plastic bags after unpacking the range. Never allow children to play with packaging material.
•Proper Installation—Be sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician in accordance with the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.- latest edition, or in Canada CAN/ CGA B149.1, and CAN/CGA B149.2, and the National Electrical Code ANSI / N FPA No.70-latest ed ition, or in Canada CSA Standard C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code, Part 1, and local code requirements. Install only per installation instructions provided in the literature package for this range. Ask your dealer to recommend a qualified technician and an authorized repair service. Know how to disconnect the power to the range at the circuit breaker or fuse box in case of an emergency.
To reduce the risk of tipping, the range must be secured by properly installed anti-tip bracket provided with the range. To check if the bracket is installed properly, visually check that rear leveling leg is inserted into and fully secured by the anti-tip bracket by removing lower front panel or storage drawer from the range.
For models equipped with a warmer drawer or lower oven, grasp the top rear edge of the range and carefully attempt to tilt it forward. Refer to the installation instructions for proper anti- tip bracket installation.
•Never modify or alter the construction of a range by removing the leveling legs, panels, wire covers, anti-tip brackets/screws, or any other part of the range.
• 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 a ppl ia nce u nless specif ica l ly recommended i n 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.
• When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat
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.
• 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.
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.
|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.|

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. t l
oven vent location
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.
For best results when baking cakes using 2 oven racks, place cookware on rack positions 2 & 5 (See Figs. 2 & 3). For best results when using a single oven flat rack, place cookware on rack positions 2, 3 or 4 (See Figs. 2 & 4).
Broiling meats See broil
Cookies, cakes, pies, biscuits & muffins 3 or 4
Frozen pies, angel food cake, yeast, bread and casseroles 1 or 2
Small cuts of meat or poultry 1 or 2
Turkey, roast or ham 1
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).
Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt they may damage the cooktop.
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.
Flame size1 Type of cooking
High flame Start most foods; bring water to a boil;
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.
Low flame Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.
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).
Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the cooking utensil. A higher flame wastes energy, and increases your risk of being burned by the flame (Fig. 3).
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 and 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 seating when first bringing the water to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest possible setting to maintain that boil.

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.
• 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 (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.
• 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 spillovers. 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 spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. DO NOT allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may leave a dull spot even after cleaning.
• Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door gasket and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. These areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water. These areas are shown in white (See Fig. 1).
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 finished. The oven may still be VERY HOT.
To start a self-clean cycle immediately without a delay, skip steps 2 & 3 in the instructions provided below.
1. The time of day will appear in the display window and the “Clean” and “LOCK” light will continue to glow.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the “LOCK” light has gone out, the oven door can be opened.

For proper gas flow it may be necessary to clean the burner head and slots. To clean, first use a clean DAMP cloth to soak up any spills. Remove any food from between the burner slots using a small nonabrasive brush like a toothbrush and afterwards wipe up using a damp cloth. For stubborn soils located in the slots, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean.
Any spill on or around the electrode must be carefully cleaned. Take care not to hit the electrode with any thing hard or it could be damaged.
Each burner head has a small ignition port located as illustrated. Should you experience ignition problems it may be that this port hole is partially blocked with soil. With the burner head in place, use a small wire gauge needle or the end of a paper clip to clear the ignition port (See Fig. 1 – center burner not shown).
Special door care instructions – Most oven doors contain glass that can break. Read the following recommendations:
• Do not close the oven door until all the oven racks are fully in place.
• Do not hit the glass with pots, pans, or any other object.
• Scratching, hitting, jarring or stressing the glass may weaken its structure causing an increased risk of breakage at a later time.
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 light bulb is located at the rear of the oven cavity 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.
1. Turn electrical power off at the main source or unplug the range.
2. Press wire holder to one side to release the glass shield that covers the light bulb.
3. Replace bulb with a new 40 watt appliance bulb.
4. Replace glass shield over bulb and snap wire holder back into place.
5. Turn power back on again at the main source (or plug the appliance back in).
6. The clock will then need to be reset. To reset, see “Setting the clock” in this Use & Care Guide.
