A WARNING

•    Storage in or on appliance — to avoid a fire hazard, flammable materials should 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.

•    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.

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 cooktop, surfaces facing the cooktop, 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.

•    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.

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

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

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

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.

SELF-CLEANING OVENS

A WARNING

•    Do not touch the oven during the self-clean cycle.

   Keep children away from oven during self-clean cycle.

   Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns.

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

•    Do Not Use Oven Cleaners-No commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind should be used in or around any part of the oven.

•    Do Not Clean Door Gasket-The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or move the gasket.

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

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR RANGE

•    Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area around each surface 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.

•    Clean cook top with caution-If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to avoid a steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.

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.

A CAUTION

Always use oven mitts to protect hands from possible burns when using the oven or cooktop. The oven, oven racks and cooktop will become very hot.


Oven vent location

The oven vent is located under the left side of the control panel (See Fig. 1). When the oven is heating, warm air passes through this vent. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven which helps to provide good baking results. Do not block the oven vent.

oven vent location

Oven racks

Oven rack stop

Most oven racks slide on rack guides provided along the oven cavity sides. The rack guides are curved near the front of each guide. The curve will catch and hold the oven rack stable into a stop position when an oven rack is extended straight out from the oven.

For better access to food items in the oven, slowly pull the oven rack straight out to the oven rack stop position (Fig. 3) before checking on food items or removing food dishes from the oven.

Removing, replacing & arranging most oven racks types

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

To remove – Pull the oven rack straight out until it reaches the stop position.Tilt up front of oven rack to slide past the stop position and pull the rack out of the oven cavity (Fig. 4).


3 IMPORTANT

Do not remove or attempt to arrange oven racks with cookware still on the racks. To avoid damaging cookware or spilling food items, always remove any cookware first.






To replace – Rest the oven rack evenly between a left and right front guide along the oven walls so that the oven rack rests level. Tilt front of rack upward and slide rack in past the stop position. Then bring the rack to a level position and slide the rack completely inside oven (Fig. 5).

Types of oven racks

Your range may be equipped with one or more of the following oven rack types listed below:

The flat oven rack (some models) may be used for most cooking needs and may be placed in most rack positions.

The flat handle oven rack (some models) may be used for most cooking needs. May be placed in most rack positions. Similar to the flat oven rack but comes with a built-in handle.

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.

The half rack (some models) has a removable section to allow for taller cooking utensils in the oven. When the removable section is in place, the rack may be used like the flat oven rack.

The Effortless™ Oven Rack (some models) instructions are provided later in this section.

The bottom oven rack (if equipped) should only be used in the lowest oven rack position. To maximize oven space, place cookware on the bottom oven rack for example when roasting large cuts of meat. Do not use the bottom oven rack in any other oven rack position.

Air circulation in the oven

For best baking results allow 2 to 4 inches (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. For even heating, hot air must be able to circulate freely around the pans and 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 in positions 3 & 5. For best results when using a single or an offset oven rack, place cookware on rack in position 2, 3 or 4.

7


3 IMPORTANT

•    Only the Effortless™ Oven Rack system should be used in oven rack position 2. Placing ANY other rack in oven rack position 2 will prevent the oven door from fully closing and may damage the oven door, oven cavity or the door connector brackets.

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

A CAUTION

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

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

To assemble the Effortless™ Oven Rack system:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3 IMPORTANT

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

About the ceramic glass cooktop

Located under the surface of the glass ceramic cooktop are radiant surface elements. The design patterns on the ceramic cooktop outlines the area and size of the surface element. Be sure to match the pan size with the diameter of the element outline on the cooktop and use only quality flat-bottomed cookware.

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

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

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

Element on & hot surface indicator lights

Your appliance is equipped with two different types of radiant surface control indicator lights that will glow on the backguard — the element on indicator lights and the hot surface indicator light (See Fig. 1).

NOTES

   Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the 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 cleaning in the Care & Cleaning and Before You Call checklist sections of this Use & Care Manual.

The element on indicator lights are located on the control panel above each radiant element control knob and 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. The hot surface indicator light located on the control panel will glow when any surface cooking area heats up and will remain on until the glass cooktop has cooled to a MODERATE level.


Types of cooktop elements


Using proper cookware


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

Radiant surface elements are located just below the surface of the glass cooktop. The patterns on the ceramic glass outlines the size and type of element available at each position on the cooktop. The single radiant element will have a single round outline pattern shown.

The versatile dual radiant element will show with a dual ring pattern on the cooktop. This element allows the user to set the smaller inner portion as a single element or both inner and outer portions may be set to heat together (See Fig. 1).

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 & 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.

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 should have flat bottoms that make good contact with the entire element (See Fig. 2). Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the cookware (Fig. 3). For more information about the ceramic cooktop see “Cooktop Cleaning” and “Cooktop Maintenance” in the Care & Cleaning section.

* 1

•    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.

A CAUTION

To operate a 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).

3.    When cooking is complete, turn the 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 spot. Use the graphics provided as a guide and adjust the control knob as needed. 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 IMPORTANT

Do not allow aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt to make contact with the ceramic glass

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

   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.

NOTES 2 1

Dual radiant surface elements (some models)

Symbols provided on the backguard graphics will indicate which coil of the dual radiant element will heat. The O symbol indicates the inner coil only. The @ symbol indicates both inner and outer coils will heat.

To operate a dual radiant element:

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

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

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

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

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.

Quick boil feature (some models)

Your appliance may be equipped with one or two elements on the ceramic cooktop marked quick boil.

quick boil

These radiant elements are best used when bringing larger quantities of liquid to temperature and when preparing larger quantities of food.

Areas that heat are shown darkened.

Fig. 1    Fig. 2

3 IMPORTANT

Do not allow aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt to make contact with the ceramic glass cooktop. If these items melt on the cooktop they will damage the ceramic cooktop.

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 element on indicator lights will glow when one or more elements are turned ON. A quick glance at these indicator lights when cooking is finished 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 glow until the heating surface area has cooled sufficiently.

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

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

A CAUTION

   Unlike the surface elements, the keep warm zone will not glow red when it is hot. Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from 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 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.

3 IMPORTANT


Do not allow aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt to make contact with the ceramic glass cooktop. If these items melt on the cooktop they will damage the ceramic cooktop.


Home Canning

Be sure to read and observe all the following points when home canning using your appliance.


3 IMPORTANT

NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over 2 different surface cooking areas at the same time. This may cause the ceramic cooktop to fracture.


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

   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.

•    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 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.

3 IMPORTANT

Do not allow aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt to make contact with the ceramic glass cooktop. If these items melt on the cooktop they will damage the ceramic cooktop.


• When using two canners at the same time, stagger the canners on the left and right sides of the cooktop. This will help distribute the heat generated more evenly.

Be sure to review the latest online information for home canning. Some suggestions might be the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service or the National Center for Home Food Preservation (NCHFP).

NOTES

•    When using the convect features, any cook time

reductions used may need to vary depending on the oven set temperature.

•    When baking layer cakes, use the bake feature to obtain the best possible results.

•    If the oven door is opened when a convect feature is active, the convect fan will stop rotating until the oven door is closed.

Convect

Benefits of the convection features

—    Foods cook more evenly

—    Multiple rack baking

—    No special pans or bakeware needed

The convect feature uses a fan to circulate the oven’s heat uniformly around the oven. This improved heat distribution allows for fast, even cooking and browning results. Heated air flows around the food from all sides, sealing in juices and flavors. Convect provides better results when baking using multiple oven racks. Most foods cooked with a bake setting will cook faster and more evenly when using the convect features.

Convect bake

Suggestions for convect baking

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

•    Reduce the oven temperature 25°F from the 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 3 & 5 for best results (Fig. 1).

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

Step    Press

1. Press convect.

Press start.

To stop convect bake at any time press cancel.

Convect roast

Suggestions for convect roasting

•    Preheating is not necessary when roasting foods using

convect roast.

•    Since convect roast cooks faster, reduce cook times by 25% from the recommended time of your recipe (check the food at this time). Then if needed, increase cook time until the desired doneness is obtained.

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

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

Step

Press

1. Press convect.

To stop convect roast at any time press cancel.

NOTE

When choosing the different convect features, use the convect keypad to toggle between the choices.


Convect broil (some models)

Use the convect broil feature to cook thicker cuts of meats that require direct exposure to radiant heat and the convect fan for optimum browning results.

3 IMPORTANT

Some models are not equipped with the convect broil feature.

Suggestions for convect broil:

1.    Be sure to carefully follow all the recommended broil pan and insert instructions and the directions for placing the oven racks as provided in the “broil” section in this Use & Care Guide.

2.    Since convect broil cooks food faster, reduce the cook time by 25% from the recommended cook time of your recipe (check the food at this time).

If necessary, increase cook time until the desired doneness is obtained.

3.    Close the oven door when using convect broil.

Convect convert

The convect convert feature allows you to convert any baking recipe for the convect feature. The control uses the normal recipe settings and adjusts to a lower temperature for convection baking. The convect convert feature may only be used when convect baking.

To set convect using default oven set temperature of 350°F and adding the convect convert:

Step    Press

1.    Press convect keypad.

Probe

Be sure to use the probe feature for best results when cooking foods such as roasts, hams or poultry. This feature also works well with other foods such as meat loaf and casseroles.

For some food types, especially poultry and roasts, using a probe to check the internal temperature is the safest possible method to insure properly cooked food.

The probe feature, when set correctly, will alert when the internal food temperature reaches the desired “target” temperature.

When active, the probe will display the internal food temperature, eliminating the need for any guesswork.

A CAUTION

To avoid the possibility of burns after cooking with the probe, use care when disconnecting the probe from the receptacle or food. The probe may be hot. Be sure to always use a pot holder to protect hands.


3 IMPORTANT

   To avoid damaging the probe, do not use kitchen utensils such as tongs to pull on the probe cable or handles. Always insert and remove the probe using the provided handles (See Fig. 1) and always use a pot holder to protect hands from possible burns.

•    Do not store the probe inside the oven. Always remove the probe from the oven when finished.

•    Use only the original probe provided with this appliance. Connecting any other probe or device into the probe receptacle could result in damage to the oven control, electronics and the receptacle.

   Before starting self-clean, double check that the probe is removed from the oven interior. The high temperatures generated by self-clean may damage or destroy the probe.

   To avoid damaging the probe, defrost frozen foods completely before inserting the probe.


Probe (cont’d)

Proper probe placement in food:

•    Always insert the probe so that the probe tip rests inside at the center of the thickest part of meat or food (See Fig. 1). For best results, do not allow the probe temperature sensor to contact bone, fat, gristle or the cookware.

•    For bone-in ham or lamb, insert the probe into the center of lowest large muscle or joint. For dishes such as meat loaf or casseroles, insert the probe into center of food. When cooking fish, insert meat probe just above the gill.

•    For whole poultry or turkey, fully insert the probe sensor into the thickest part of the breast area. (See Fig. 2).

Choosing a setting for how the oven will operate once the probe reaches the target temperature

Your oven is factory preset to automatically stop cooking and start the keep warm feature once the probe sensor reaches the set target temperature. This setting may be changed to continue cooking if desired.

3 IMPORTANT

Setting the option for how the oven will heat once the probe reaches the target temperature must be done when the oven is inactive. The probe is not required to be connected to the probe receptacle when setting this option.


To set the oven to continue cooking after reaching the target temperature:

By default the oven will automatically change to a keep warm setting (“HLd” and the actual probe temperature will alternate in the display). keep warm will maintain the oven temperature at 170° F (77°C) for 3 hours unless otherwise cancelled.

To stop cooking at any time press cancel.


Probe (cont’d)

Pr obEPP

Fig. 1

Probe error message:

If the error message “Prob ERR” displays (Fig. 1), check to be sure that the probe connector is fully inserted into the receptacle. If the probe is fully inserted in the receptacle and the error message continues, the probe may be defective and need replaced.

When “Prob ERR” displays, the oven control will not permit any oven feature to activate until corrected or the probe is removed. If the error message continues, remove the probe from the receptacle and oven.

Probe Too Hotmessage:

When the message “Prob” … “Too... “Hot” … flashes in the display, the probe sensor temperature has exceeded 250°F (121°C). If the probe is not removed this message may continue until the sensor reaches 300°F (149°C) or higher, at which time the oven will automatically turn OFF and display “Prob ERR” message.

This message may have been generated if the probe sensor is exposed to direct oven heat or the food internal temperature is over 250°F (121°C). Be sure the probe sensor is fully covered by the food or if the food is done, press cancel and remove food and probe from the oven.


1^ NOTES

•    During the cooking process the internal food temperature will display by default. To review the

target temperature press the Probe keypad once. After 6 seconds the display will revert back to the internal food temperature.

•    To assure temperature accuracy, do not remove the probe from the food or receptacle until the desired internal temperature is met.

•    If the probe is active and the probe is removed from the receptacle only, the probe feature will cancel but the oven will continue to cook.

•    If the probe is active and the probe is removed from the food only, the probe feature will remain active, but the displayed internal food temperature may no longer be reliable. This may eventually generate a “Probe Too Hotmessage.

•    The oven will automatically turn OFF if the probe sensor reaches 300°F (149°C) or more.

•    The probe feature cannot be set with broil or selfclean.

•    To change the target temperature while cooking,

press the Probe keypad once. Use the numeric keypads to change the target temperature. Press the start keypad to accept any change.


Broil

Use the broil feature to cook meats that require direct exposure to radiant heat for optimum browning results. when broiling, always remember to arrange the oven racks while the oven is still cool.

Broiling is direct heat cooking and will produce some smoke. If smoke is excessive, place food further away from the element. Always watch food carefully to prevent burning.

Step    Press

1.    Arrange oven rack while cool (Figs.1 & 4). For optimum browning results, preheat the oven for about 2 minutes before adding food.

2.    Be sure to place prepared food directly under upper oven element. Leave oven door open at the broil stop (Fig. 2) position.

3.    Press broil.    broil

4.    Press start to activate.    start

A WARNING

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.

To Set the Sabbath Feature (for use on the

Jewish Sabbath & Holidays)

For further assistance, guidelines for proper usage and a complete list of models with the Sabbath feature, please vist the web at

https:Wwww.star-k.org.

The bake time and delay start keypads are used to set the Sabbath feature. The Sabbath feature may only be used with the bake feature. The oven temperature may be set higher or lower after setting the Sabbath feature (oven temperature adjustments should be used only during Jewish Holidays), however the display will not be visible and no audible tones will be provided when a change occurs.

Once the oven is properly set using the bake feature with the Sabbath mode active, the oven will remain continuously ON until cancelled. The Sabbath mode will override the factory preset 6-Hour Energy Saving feature.

If the oven light is needed during the Sabbath, turn on the oven light before activating the Sabbath feature. Once the oven light is turned on and the Sabbath feature is active, the oven light will remain on until the Sabbath feature is turned OFF. If the oven light needs to be off, be sure to turn the oven light off before activating the Sabbath feature.

It is recommended that any oven temperature change with the Sabbath feature active be followed with 2 presses of the start keypad. This will insure the oven remains ON even if the attempt to set the oven temperature was lower or higher than the oven control can accept. If the oven temperature is set incorrectly, the oven temperature will default to 170°F or 550°F. Try to set the desired oven temperature again.

To program the oven for 350°F bake and activate the Sabbath feature:

Step    Press

1.    Be sure that the clock is set with the correct time of day.

2.    Arrange the oven racks.

3.    Press bake.    bake

4.    Press start.

5.    If a bake time or delay start is needed then enter the time in this step. If not, skip this step and continue to step 6. Refer to the bake time or delay start instructions. Remember the oven will shut-off after completing a bake time or delay start and therefore may only be used once during the Sabbath/Jewish Holidays. The maximum delay start time is 11 hours & 59 minutes.

•    It is not advised to attempt to activate any other program feature except bake while the Sabbath feature is active. ONLY the following keypads will function correctly with the Sabbath feature: 0-9 number keypads, bake, start & cancel. All other keypads should not be used once the Sabbath feature is active.

•    You may change the oven temperature once baking has started. Press bake , enter the oven temperature change (170 to 550F°) and press start (for Jewish Holidays only). Remember that the oven control will no longer beep or display any further changes once the oven is set for the Sabbath feature.

•    If the keep warm feature was activated and the Sabbath feature was set the keep warm feature will automatically shut-off the oven off after 3 hours.

 

Preparing for self-clean

A self-cleaning oven cleans itself using high temperatures that are well above normal cooking temperatures. The self-clean feature, if used properly, will eliminate soils from the oven completely or reduce them to a fine powdered ash. Once the oven has cooled, simply wipe away the ash using a damp cloth.

Your oven provides three self-cleaning duration choices. A 3-hour cleaning time for normal cleaning; a 2-hour clean for lighter soils and a 4-hour option for heavier burnt-on soils (some models).

Read before starting self-clean

A WARNING

   Do not touch the oven during the self-clean cycle.

•    Keep children away from oven during self-clean cycle.

•    Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns.

3 IMPORTANT

•    Remove all items from the oven and cooktop, including food, cookware, utensils, plastic and any aluminum foil and temp probe (if equipped). Aluminum foil will not withstand high temperatures generated during a self-clean cycle.

•    Remove all oven racks and any accessories

from the oven to avoid possible heat damage. If the oven racks are not removed they may discolor.

The Effortless™ Oven Rack (some models) must be removed before starting self-clean to avoid damaging the glide ability of the rack.

•    Be sure the oven vent area is clear.

•    Remove all items from the storage drawer (some models) or warming drawer (some models).

•    Be sure the oven light shield is in place. Turn off the oven light.

   Remove any excessive spillovers. 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 food spillovers can cause heavy smoke or a fire during self-clean.

•    Remove any food spills from oven that have a high sugar or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) before starting a self-clean cycle. If they are not removed they may leave a dull spot even after self-cleaning.

•    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. Clean using soap and water before starting self-clean. These areas (See Fig. 1) heat sufficiently to burn soil on.

   Do not clean the oven door gasket (See Fig. 1). Do not use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so could cause damage to the door gasket. 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 commercial oven cleaners or protective coatings of any kind inside oven. Residue from oven cleaners may damage the porcelain during the next self-clean cycle.


Read before starting self-clean (cont’d)

3 IMPORTANT

   It is normal for odors to occur during self-clean, especially during the first self-clean cycle. It is recommend to ventilate the kitchen. Open any windows and if available turn on an exhaust fan or overhead range hood during the self-clean cycle.

   Be aware that during self-clean temperatures inside the oven will become hot enough to melt or destroy some types of materials, including cookware made with materials having a low melting point and aluminum foil.

Setting a self-clean cycle

Example: To start an immediate self-clean cycle: Step    Press

A CAUTION

To avoid possible burns use caution when opening the oven door when the self-clean cycle is finished. The oven may still be VERY HOT. Stand to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow hot air or steam to escape.

When the self-clean cycle is done:

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

2.    Once the oven has cooled (about 1 hour) and “Hot” is no longer displayed the “door OPn” message will appear (Fig. 4). When this message turns off the door is finished unlocking. Use caution and avoid possible burns when opening the door after the self-cleaning cycle. The oven may still be VERY HOT.

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

self

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

1^ NOTE

If attempting to set “back to back” self-clean cycles, the control may display the messages “CLEAn” , then “dELAy” followed by the length of time to wait before the next self-clean may be set. For example, if the message displayed reads “4:00“, and the time is 12:00 o’clock, the control will not allow self-clean to be set again until after 4:00 o’clock.

 

1^ NOTES

•    The maximum delay start setting is 11 hours & 59 minutes.

•    Check to be sure the oven is empty before setting a self-clean cycle using a delay start time. Immediately after setting self-clean with a delay start the oven door will lock. The self-clean feature will not start heating the oven for cleaning until reaching the delay start time.

 

Cleaning recommendation table

Surface type

Recommendation

•    Control knobs (some models)

•    Painted body parts

•    Painted decorative trim

•    Aluminum, plastic or vinyl trim

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

•    Control panel

Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls OFF, activate oven lockout (on some models) and if needed remove any knobs from panel. 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.

• Easy Care™ Stainless

Steel (some models)

If your range finish is Easy Care™ 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, chloride, chlorine or ammonia. It is recommended to use mild dish soap and water or a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar.

•    Porcelain enamel parts

•    Broiler pan and broiler pan insert (if equipped)

Gentle scrubbing 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 noscratch 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.

• Oven interior

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

• Oven racks

Oven racks must be removed from oven. Do not clean oven racks in oven during the self-clean cycle. Remove and clean using a mild, abrasive cleaner following manufacturer’s instructions. Thoroughly rinse and dry.

• Oven door

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.

• Ceramic cooktop

Refer to “Cooktop cleaning” and “Cooktop maintenance” in the Care &

Cleaning section.

Cooktop maintenance Cooktop cleaning

3 IMPORTANT

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

A CAUTION

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


Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply a ceramic cooktop cleaning cream (available in most hardware, grocery and department stores) to the ceramic surface. Clean and buff with a clean paper towel. This will make cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. Cooktop cleaning creams leave 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 (with cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough or dirty bottoms can mark or scratch the cooktop surface.

Do not:

•    Slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop.

•    Use cookware with dirt or dirt build up on bottom; replace with clean cookware before using.

•    Use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the kitchen.

•    Cook foods directly on the cooktop surface or without using cookware.

•    Drop heavy or hard objects on the ceramic glass cooktop, they may cause it to crack.

For light to moderate soil:

Apply a few drops of cooktop cleaning cream directly to the cooktop. Use a clean paper towel to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue. Do not use the towel you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.

For heavy, burned on soil:

Apply a few drops of cooktop cleaning cream 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.

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 (as illustrated) and scrape the soil from the hot surface. Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same method for heavy or burned on soils.


Cooktop cleaning (cont’d) Aluminum foil and oven liners (cont’d)

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.

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.

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

Using a liner in the oven restricts the heat and air flow needed to obtain the best possible cooking results for any oven, including the warmer drawer (on some models).

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

Replacing the 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 protected with a glass shield held by a wire holder.

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

To replace the interior oven light:

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 need to be reset. To reset review “Setting the clock” section in this manual.


Removing and replacing the lift-off oven door

A CAUTION

•    To avoid possible injury when removing or replacing the oven door, follow the instructions below carefully and always hold the oven door with both hands positioned away from the door hinge area.

•    The door is heavy. For safe, temporary storage, lay the door flat with the inside of the door facing down.

To remove oven door:

1.    Open oven door completely (horizontal with floor – See Fig. 1).

2.    Pull the door hinge locks on both left and right door hinges down from the oven frame completely towards the oven door (See Fig. 2). A tool such as a small flat-blade screwdriver may be required.

3.    Firmly grasp both sides of oven door along the door sides (Do not use the oven door handle – See Fig. 3).

4.    Close the door to the broil stop position (the oven door will stop into this position just before fully closing).

5.    With the oven door in the broil stop position, lift the oven door hinge arms over the roller pins located on each side of the oven frame (See Fig. 4).

To replace oven door:

1.    Firmly grasp both sides of oven door along the door sides (Do not use the oven door handle – See Fig. 3).

2.    Holding the oven door at the same angle as the removal position, seat the hook of the hinge arm over the roller pins located on each side of the oven door frame (See Fig. 4). The hook of the hinge arms must be fully seated onto the roller pins.

3.    Fully open the oven door (horizontal with floor – See Fig.

1).

4.    Push the door hinge locks up towards and into the oven frame on both left and right oven door hinges (See Fig. 2) to the locked position.

5.    Close the oven door.

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.
