IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR COOKTOP

A WARNING

Use Proper Flame Size—Adjust flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to flame will also improve efficiency.

•    Know which knob controls each surface burner.

Place pan of food on the burner before turning it on, and turn the burner off before removing the pan.

   Do not use a Searing Grill on the cooktop—Most

Searing grill are not designed for use on a cooktop. Doing so may result in a fire.

A WARNING

In case of fire or gas leak, be sure to turn off the main gas shutoff valve.


A WARNING

Do not use stove top grills on your sealed gas burners. If you use a stove top grill on a sealed gas burner, it will cause incomplete combustion and can result in exposure to carbon monoxide levels above allowable current standards. This can be hazardous to your health.

•    Always turn the knob to the full LITE position when igniting top burners. Visually check that the 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.

   Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line surface burner pans. Protective liners or aluminum foil may interfere with heat and air distribution, and combustion. Damage to the cooktop or personal injury may result.

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

   Do Not Use Decorative Surface Burner Covers. If

a burner is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover will become hot and possibly melt. You will not be able to see that the burner is on. Burns will occur if the hot covers are touched. Damage may also be done to the cooktop or burners because the covers may cause overheating. Air will be blocked from the burner and cause combustion problems.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN

• Use Care When Opening Oven Door or Warm & Serve Drawer (if equipped)—Stand to the side of the appliance when opening the door/drawer of a hot appliance. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or replace food in the oven/drawer.

• Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven is vented at the center of the cooktop. 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.

A WARNING

NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack with materials such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may trap heat, causing a fire hazard.

•    Placement of Oven/Warm & Serve Drawer (if equipped) Racks. Always place oven/Warm & Serve Drawer (if equipped) racks in desired location while appliance is cool. Remove all utensils from the rack before removing rack. If rack must be moved while oven is hot, use extreme caution. Use pot holders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let pot holders contact the hot oven burner or interior of the oven.

   Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. Broiler pan and grid allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler.

   Do not cover the broiler grid or oven bottom with aluminum foil. Exposed fat and grease could ignite.

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

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR OVEN

•    Clean the appliance regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Exhaust fan ventilation hoods and grease filters should be kept clean. Do not allow grease to accumulate. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire. Refer to the hood manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.

•    Cleaners/Aerosols—Always follow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for use. Be aware that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing damage and/or injury.

•    Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts of the appliance listed in this Owner’s Guide. Before using the self-cleaning cycle of the appliance, remove all utensils stored in the appliance.


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

•    Do not use oven cleaners. No oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind should be used in or around any part of the appliance.

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

A CAUTION

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

Grounding instructions

For personal safety, the cooktop must be properly grounded. For maximum safety, the power cord must be plugged into an electrical outlet that is correctly polarized and properly grounded.

DO NOT operate the cooktop using a 2-prong adapter or an extension cord. 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. See the INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS packaged with this cooktop for complete installation and grounding instructions.

LOCATIONS OF THE GAS SURFACE BURNERS

Your range is equipped with gas surface burners with different BTU ratings. The ability to heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as the burner size increases.

The small SIMMER burner is best used for simmering delicate sauces, etc. This burner is located at the right rear burner position on the cooktop.

The STANDARD burner can be used for most surface cooking needs. The standard burners are located at the left front and rear positions on the cooktop.

The POWER burner is best used for bringing large quantities of liquid rapidly up to temperature or when preparing larger quantities of food. The POWER burner is located at the right front position on the cooktop.

Regardless of size, always select cookware that is suitable for the amount and type of food being prepared. Select a burner and flame size appropriate to the pan. Never allow flames to extend beyond the outer edge of the pan.

CHECK BURNER CAP PLACEMENT BEFORE OPERATING THE SURFACE BURNERS

To prevent flare-ups and avoid creation of harmful byproducts, do not use the cooktop without all burner caps properly installed to insure proper ignition and gas flame size.

It is very important to be sure that all surface burner caps and burner grates are properly installed and in the correct locations BEFORE operating the cooktop burners.

Remember:

•    Always keep surface burner caps in place whenever using a surface burner.

•    When placing the burner caps, be sure that all burner caps are seated firmly and rest level on top of burner heads.

•    For proper flow of gas and ignition of burners DO NOT allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other material to enter the gas orifice port opening.

Round Style Burners

The burner cap lip (See Fig. 2) should fit snug into the center of burner head and rest level. Refer to Figs. 3 & 4 for correct and incorrect burner cap placement. Once in place, you may check the fit by gently sliding the burner cap from side to side (Fig. 5) to be sure it is centered and firmly seated. When the burner cap lip makes contact inside the center of the burner head you will be able to feel it. Please note that the burner cap should NOT move off the center of the burner head when sliding from side to side.

Correct Burner Cap Incorrect Burner Cap Placement    Placement

Fig. 3    Fig. 4



3 IMPORTANT

Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the utensil. A higher flame simply wastes heat and energy, and increases the risk of being burned by the gas flame.

A CAUTION

Do not operate the burner for an extended period of time without cookware on the grate. The finish on the grate may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.

A CAUTION

Do not place plastic items such as 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. Pot holders, towels or wood spoons could catch fire if placed too close to a flame.

OPERATING THE GAS SURFACE CONTROLS

1.    Place cooking utensil on surface burner.

2.    Push the surface control knob down and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF position.

3.    Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position. Note: All five electronic surface ignitors will spark at the same time. However, only the burner you are turning on will ignite.

4.    Visually check that the burner has a flame.

5.    Turn the control knob counterclockwise to the desired flame size. The control knobs do not have to be set at a particular setting. Use the knob indicator settings to adjust the flame as needed. DO NOT cook with the surface control knob in the LITE position. (The electronic ignitor will continue to spark if the knob is left in the LITE position.)

SETTING PROPER SURFACE BURNER FLAME SIZE

For most cooking – start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower one to complete the process. Use the recommendations below as a guide for determining proper flame size for various types of cooking. The size and type of utensil used and the amount of food being cooked will influence the setting needed.

*Flame Size Type of Cooking
High Flame Start most foods; bring water to a boil; pan broiling.
Medium Flame Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces, gravies; steaming.
Low Flame Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.

^ NOTE

*Note: Settings are based on using medium-weight metal or aluminum pans. Settings may vary when using other types of pans. 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. Clean burner if flame is yellow-orange.

3 IMPORTANT

In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface burners can be lit manually. To light a surface burner, hold a lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn the surface control knob to LITE. After burner lights turn the knob to desired setting. Use caution when lighting surface burners manually.

Even when chilled, they should not stand in the oven for more than 1 hour before cooking begins, and should be removed promptly when cooking is completed. Eating spoiled food can result in sickness from food poisoning.


SETTING BROIL (UPPER OVEN ONLY)

This mode is best for meats, fish and poultry up to 1″ thick. Broiling is a method of cooking tender cuts of meat by direct heat under the broil element of the oven. The high heat cooks quickly and gives a rich, brown outer appearance. The oven can be programmed to broil at any temperature from 400°F to 550°F.

The BROIL pad controls the Broil feature.

An optional Searing Grill, Broiler Pan and Insert are available via the enclosed accessories brochure (Figure 2 & 3). The optional broil pan and broil pan insert used together allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the oven broiler.

Broiling Tips:

•    For optimum browning, preheat the broil element for 5 minutes.

•    Broil one side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and serve.

•    Always pull the rack out to the “stop” position before turning or removing food.

•    Always use a broiler pan and its cover when broiling.

It allows the dripping grease to be kept away from the high heat of the broil element (see Figure 2).

•    If using a Searing Grill (available by mail order), preheat the grill for 5 to 10 minutes before placing your meat.

   DO NOT use the broil pan without the insert. DO NOT

cover the broil pan insert with foil. The exposed grease could catch fire.

Accessories available via the enclosed brochure:

To Set the Controls for Broiling:

1.    Arrange the interior oven rack.

2.    Press BROIL pad. “—” will appear in the display.

3.    Press or ‘v pad to set the desired temperature.

4.    Wait 4 seconds for the controls to accept the set temperature.

5.    Preheat for 5 minutes before broiling.

6.    Place the broiler pan insert on the broiler pan (available via the enclosed accessories brochure). Then place the food on the broiler pan insert. DO NOT use the broiler pan without the insert. DO NOT cover the broiler insert with foil. The exposed grease could ignite.

7.    Place the broiler pan on the rack. Be sure to center the broiler pan directly under the broiler element. Make sure the oven door is closed.

8.    Broil on one side until food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and serve. Note: Always pull the rack out to the stop position before turning or removing food.

9.    To stop broiling press CANCEL.

Note: The broil temperature setting may be changed at

any time.

A WARNING

Should an oven fire occur, leave the oven door closed and turn off the oven. If the fire continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use a fire extinguisher. DO NOT put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive and water can cause a grease fire to spread and cause personal injury.

SETTING THE SABBATH FEATURE (for use on the Jewish Sabbath & Holidays)

The BAKE TIME and DELAY START pads are used to set the Sabbath feature. The Sabbath feature may only be used with the BAKE pad. The oven temperature may be set higher or lower after setting the Sabbath feature (the oven temperature adjustment feature should be used only during Jewish Holidays), however the display will not visibly show or provide any audible tones indicating whether the change occurred correctly. Once the oven is properly set using Bake with the Sabbath feature active, the oven will remain continuously ON until cancelled. This will override the factory preset 12-Hour Energy Saving feature.

If the oven light will be needed during the Sabbath, press 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.

To Program the Oven to Begin Baking Immediately & activate the Sabbath feature

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

2.    Place the food in the oven.

3.    Press BAKE. “—” will appear in the display.

4.    Press .a. or ‘v pad to set the desired temperature.

5.    Wait 4 seconds for the controls to accept the set temperature.

6.    If you desire to set the oven control for a Bake Time or Delayed Bake Time do so at this time. If not, skip this step and continue to step 8. Refer to the Bake Time / Delay Start section for complete instructions. Remember the oven will shut down after using Bake Time or Delay Start and therefore may only be used once during the Sabbath/Jewish Holidays. The maximum Delayed Start Bake time is 11 hours & 59 minutes.

7.    The oven will turn ON and begin heating.

8.    Press and hold both the BAKE TIME and DELAY START pads for at least 3 seconds. “SAb” will appear in the display. Once “SAb” appears in the display the oven control will no longer beep or display any further changes and the oven is properly set for the Sabbath feature.

9.    The oven may be turned OFF at any time by first pressing CANCEL pad (this will turn the oven OFF only). To turn OFF the Sabbath feature press and hold both the BAKE TIME and DELAY START pads for at least 3 seconds. “SAb” will disappear from the display.

^ NOTE

You may change the oven temperature once baking has started by pressing BAKE pad, the /v or ‘v pads for the temperature you want (for Jewish Holidays only). Remember that the oven control will no longer beep when a keypad is pressed or display any further changes once the oven is set for the Sabbath feature.

Should you experience a power failure or interruption, the oven will shut off. When power is returned the oven will not turn back on automatically. If your food was nearly fully cooked, you may allow the trapped heat in the oven to finish the cooking process. Otherwise, you should remove the food when the power failure occurs, because you may only start the oven once during the Sabbath/Jewish Holidays. After the Sabbath observance turn OFF the Sabbath feature and the oven may be used with all normal functions.

After the Sabbath observance, to turn OFF the Sabbath feature:

Press and hold both the BAKE TIME and DELAY pads for at least 3 seconds. “SAb” will disappear from the display and the oven may be used with all normal functions.

^ NOTE

•    Each oven temperature can be individually adjusted.

•    The oven temperature adjustments made with this feature will not change the Self-Clean cycle temperature or the Broil temperature.

•    The oven temperature adjustments are permanent and will stay forever in the unit memory unless you manually change it again. Even a power outage will not reset these changes. Follow the same procedure again if you wish to change it to a different setting.

ADJUSTING OVEN OFFSET TEMPERATURE

The temperature in the oven has been pre-set at the factory. When first using the oven, be sure to follow recipe times and temperatures. If you think the oven is cooking too hot or too cool for the temperature you select, you can adjust the actual oven temperature to be more or less than what is displayed. Before adjusting, test a recipe by using a temperature setting that is higher or lower than the recommended temperature. The baking results should help you to decide how much of an adjustment is needed.

To adjust the oven temperature:

1.    Press and hold upper or lower oven BAKE pad for 6 seconds. The preset adjustment number will appear and “UPPER” or “LOWER” will flash in the display.

2.    To increase the temperature use the -A. pad to enter the desired change. The temperature may be increased as much as 35°F (19°C). To decrease the temperature use the v pad to enter the desired change. The temperature may be decreased as much as 35°F (19°C).

3.    Wait 4 seconds to accept the temperature change and the display will return to the time of day. Press CANCEL pad to reject the change if necessary.

SETTING SILENT CONTROL OPERATION The DELAY START pad controls the Silent Control Operation feature. The Silent Control Operation feature allows the oven control to be operated without sounds or beeps whenever necessary. If desired the control can be programmed for silent operation and later returned to operating with all the normal sounds and beeps.

To change control from normal sound operation to silent control operation:

1.    Press and hold DELAY START pad for 6 seconds. A beep will sound, “– –” will appear, “DELAY” will flash in the display. After 6 seconds, a beep will sound and “SP” (speaker) or “- -” will appear in the display.

2.    Press -A. or “v pad to switch between normal sound operation and silent operation mode.

Note: If “SP” appears, the control will operate with normal sounds and beeps. If “- -” appears, the control is in the silent operation mode.

3.    Wait 5 seconds to accept the change or press CANCEL pad to reject the change.

Note: The control will always beep at the end of a minute timer and will beep when a set temperature has been reached, even if the control is set to silent operation.

SETTING LOCKOUT FEATURE

The CANCEL pad controls the Oven Lockout feature. The Oven Lockout feature automatically locks the oven doors (Self-cleaning ovens only) and prevents the oven from being turned on. It does not disable the display of the clock, the minute timer or the interior oven lights.

SELF-CLEANING (All lower oven and some upper oven only)

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

Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:

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

•    DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. 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 will no longer slide in and out of the oven cavity effortlessly.

•    Remove any excessive spillovers in the oven cavity 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.

What to Expect during Cleaning

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

If heavy spillovers are not wiped up before cleaning, they may flame and cause more smoke and odor than usual. This is normal and safe and should not cause alarm. If available, use an exhaust fan during the self-cleaning cycle.

A CAUTION

To avoid possible burns use care when opening the oven door after the Self-Cleaning cycle. Stand to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow hot air or steam to escape.

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 line the oven walls, racks, bottom or any other part of the range with aluminum foil. Doing so will destroy heat distribution, produce poor baking results and cause permanent damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil will melt to the interior surface of the oven).

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 completed. The oven may still be VERY HOT.

^ NOTE

See additional cleaning information for the oven door in

the General Care & Cleaning section.


SETTING SELF-CLEAN CYCLE TIME LENGTH The SELF CLEAN pad controls the Self-Cleaning feature. If you are planning to use the oven directly after a selfclean cycle remember to allow time for the oven to cool down and the oven door to unlock. This normally takes about one hour. So a 3 hour self-clean cycle will actually take about 4 hours to complete.

*It is recommend to use a 2 hour self-clean cycle for light soils, a 3 hour cycle for average soils, and a 4 hour cycle for heavy soils (to assure satisfactory results).

To set the controls for a Self-Cleaning cycle to start immediately and shut off automatically

1.    Be sure the clock is set with the correct time of day and the oven door is closed.

2.    Press SELF CLEAN. “- -:- -” appears in the display.

3.    Press the a. or “v to select between 2, 3 or 4 hour. “CLn” appears in the display.

As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven lock will begin to close automatically and the “DOOR” and “LOCKED” indicator light will appear. DO NOT open the oven door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the oven door to lock).

When the Self-Clean Cycle is Completed

1.    “Hot” will appear in the display window and the “DOOR” and “LOCKED” light will continue to glow.

2.    Once the oven has cooled down for approximately 1 HOUR, and the “DOOR” is no longer displayed, the oven door can then be opened.

^ NOTE

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

Stopping or Interrupting a Self-Cleaning Cycle

If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a selfcleaning cycle due to excessive smoke or fire in the oven:

1.    Press CANCEL.

2.    The oven door can only be opened after the oven has cooled down for approximately 1 HOUR, and the “DOOR” is no longer displayed, the oven door can then be opened.

The SELF CLEAN and DELAY START pads controls the Delayed Self-Clean operation. The automatic timer will turn the oven on and off at the time you select in advance.

To set the control for the Self-Cleaning Cycle to start at a delayed time and shut off automatically (example: 3 hour self-clean cycle to start at 4:30)

1.    Be sure the clock is set with the correct time of day and the oven door is closed.

2.    Press SELF CLEAN. “3:00” appears in the display.

3.    Press the a or “v to select between 2, 3 or 4 hour. “CLn” appears in the display.

4.    Press DELAY START.

5.    Enter the desired start time using the number pads a or “v pads.

6.    Wait 4 seconds for the controls to accept the set time.

7.    The control will start the self-cleaning at the set start time, for the period of time previously selected.

When the Self-Clean Cycle is Completed

1.    “Hot” will appear in the display. The time of day, the “DOOR” and “LOCKED” will remain in the display.

2.    Once the oven has cooled down for approximately 1 HOUR, and the “DOOR” and “LOCKED” are no longer displayed, the oven door can then be opened.

Stopping or Interrupting a Self-Cleaning Cycle

If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a selfcleaning cycle due to excessive smoke or fire in the oven:

1.    Press CANCEL.

2.    The oven door can only be opened after the oven has cooled down for approximately 1 HOUR and the “DOOR” and “LOCKED” are no longer displayed.


A CAUTION

To avoid possible burns use care when opening the oven door after the Self-Cleaning cycle. Stand to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow hot air or steam to escape.

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

Before cleaning any part of the appliance, be sure all controls are turned off and the appliance is COOL. REMOVE SPILLOVERS AND HEAVY SOILING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. REGULAR CLEANING WILL REDUCE THE NUMBER OF

MAJOR CLEANING LATER.

Surfaces

How to Clean

Aluminum (trim pieces) & Vinyl

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

 

Glass, Painted and Plastic Using a soft cloth, clean with mild dish detergent and water or a 50/50 solution of vinegar Body Parts, Control Knobs    and water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry and polish with a soft cloth.

& Decorative Trim Pieces    Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth first. DO NOT spray liquids directly

on the control pad and display area. Do not use large amounts of water on the control panel – excess water on the control area may cause damage to the appliance. Do not use other liquid cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or paper towels – they will damage the finish. To remove control knobs, turn to the OFF position; grasp firmly and pull straight off the shaft. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.

Control Panels    Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls to OFF and remove the control

knobs. To remove, pull each knob straight off the shaft. Clean as instructed above. Squeeze excess water from the cloth before wiping the panel; especially when wiping around the controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the appliance. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.

Clean burner grates, broiler pan and insert (some models) in the dishwasher and dry upon removal. If soils are not removed, follow the cooktop cleaning instructions below.

Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp cloth, then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.

Your range finish is made with Easy Care™ Stainless Steel. Clean the stainless with warm soapy water using a clean sponge or cloth. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft clean cloth. DO NOT use ANY store bought cleaners like Stainless Steel cleaners or any other types of cleaners containing any abrasive, chlorides, chlorines or ammonia.

It is recommended to use mild dish soap and water or a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar.

Remove racks. See “To remove and to replace an oven rack” under Oven vent(s) and racks. Use a mild, abrasive cleaner, following manufacturer’s instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry. After cleaning the racks, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of baby oil or salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack positions).

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.

Cleaning the burner caps- Should you ever need to remove the burner caps for cleaning, lift the burner cap off the burner head. Clean heavy soils with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and immediately thoroughly dry including the bottom and inside of the cap. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners. They can scratch the porcelain on the cap. Do not clean burner caps in dishwasher.


CLEANING THE COOKTOP, BURNER HEADS, CAPS & GRATES

The cooktop is designed to make cleaning easier. Because the gas Burners are sealed, cleanups are easy when spillovers are cleaned up immediately.

The cooktop, Burner Heads and Caps should be routinely cleaned. Keeping the Burner Head Ports clean will prevent improper ignition and an uneven flame. Refer to the following instructions:


3 IMPORTANT

When placing the burner caps on the cooktop, be sure the burner caps are seated firmly on top of burner heads. Improper flame size and uneven heating may result when any surface burners are turned ON and the burner caps are not seated correctly.


3 IMPORTANT

•    For proper gas flow and ignition of the burners — DO NOT allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other material to enter the gas orifice opening.

•    The cooktop is not removable. Do not attempt to remove or lift the cooktop.

A CAUTION

Do not remove any parts from the cooktop until they have completely cooled and are safe to handle. Do not operate the surface Burners without the Burner Caps and Burner Heads properly in place.

To avoid possible burns DO NOT attempt any of the following cleaning instructions provided before turning OFF all of the surface burners and allow them to cool.

Your appliance is shipped with the burner heads and burner caps in the correct locations. Before using your gas appliance be sure to:

•    Follow installation instructions before operating.

•    Remove all packing tape from cooktop area.

To Clean the Burner Grates- Be sure burners and grates are cool before you place your hand, a pot holder, cleaning cloths or other material on them.

The burner grates are dishwasher safe and may be cleaned in the dishwasher. Remove any excessive soils before placing in the dishwasher.

To Clean the Cooktop and contoured areas of the cooktop– If a spill occurs on the porcelain cooktop, blot up spill with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners on the cooktop. They can scratch the porcelain. Completely rinse any mild cleaners used from the surface or the porcelain cooktop may become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.

Cleaning the burner heads- Lift the burner cap from the burner head. The surface burner heads are secured to the cooktop and must be cleaned in place (except for the bridge burner, which is removable. See bridge burner assembly section for proper installation).

For proper gas flow it may be necessary to clean the burner heads 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 using a damp cloth. For stubborn soils located in the slots, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean.

Should you experience ignition problems it may be that an ignition port hole is partially blocked with soil (see fig 1). With the burner head in place, use a small wire gauge needle or the end of a paper clip to clear the ignition port or ports.


REMOVING AND REPLACING THE LIFT- 3. Firmly grasp both sides of oven door along the door sides OFF OVEN DOORS    (Do not use the oven door handle – See Figure 3).



A CAUTION

The door is heavy. For safe, temporary storage, lay the

door flat with the inside of the door facing down.

Most oven doors contain glass that can break.

Read the following recommendations:

1.    Do not close the oven door until all the oven racks are fully in place.

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.


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

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 Figure 4).
