A WARNING


3 IMPORTANT

For electric ignition models only: 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.


NEVER use this appliance as a space heater to heat or warm the room. Doing so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning.

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.

Stepping, leaning or sitting on the door or drawers of a range can result in serious injuries and also cause damage to the appliance. DO NOT

allow children to climb or play around the range. The weight of a child on an open oven door may cause the range to tip, resulting in serious burns or other injury.

Storage in or on appliance—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.

DO NOT LEAVE CHILDREN ALON E —children should not be left alone or unattended in the area where appliance is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance, including the storage drawer, lower broiler drawer, warmer drawer or lower double oven.

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.

• 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.

A CAUTION

•    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.


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.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR COOKTOP

•    Know which knob controls each surface burner.

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.

•    G lazed cooki ng utensi ls-On ly certa i n types of g lass, 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.

•    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.

•    Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The

broiler pan and its insert allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler.

•    Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil. Exposed fat and grease could ignite.

   Protective liners-Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or fire.

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 WARNING

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.

SELF-CLEANING OVENS

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

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

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

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

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR RANGE

•    Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area around each surface element. Do not allow grease to accumulate.

•    Kitchen cleaners and aerosols—Always follow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for use.

Be aware that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing damage and injury.

•    Clean ventilating hoods frequently—Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter.

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning hoods.

^ NOTE

The features shown for your appliance may vary according to model type & color.

A CAUTION

Always use oven mitts when using the oven. When using the appliance, oven racks and cooktop will become very hot which can cause burns.

Oven vent location

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.

Removing, replacing & arranging racks

To remove – pull the rack forward until it stops. Lift up front of rack and slide out.

To replace – fit the rack onto the guides on the oven walls. Tilt the front of the rack upward and slide the rack back into place.

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

Recommended rack positions by food type

Food type    Position

Types of oven racks flat oven rack

The flat oven rack or flat handle oven rack (some models) may be used for most cooking needs. The Effortless™ Oven Rack (some models) is described later in this section. 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.To maximize oven cooking space place the bottom oven rack (some models) in the lowest rack position for baking or and when roasting large cuts of meat.

Air circulation in the oven

For best baking results allow 2-4″ (5-10 cm) around the cookware for proper air circulation and be sure pans and cookware do not touch each other, the oven door, sides or back of the oven cavity. Hot air must be able to circulate around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat to reach around the food.

Baking layer cakes with 1 or 2 oven racks

For best results when baking cakes using 2 oven racks, place cookware on rack positions 2 & 5 (See Figs. 2 & 3). For best results when using a single oven flat rack, place cookware so that food is in the center of the oven (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



Effortless™ Oven Rack system

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 (see previous page to verify positions).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.

A CAUTION

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

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

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.


Using proper cookware

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).

A CAUTION

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.

3 IMPORTANT

Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt they may damage the cooktop.

Set proper burner flame size

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 undercooked.

Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the food will neither brown or cook properly.

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.


^ NOTE

Low Flame    Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.

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.

Cookware material types

The most popular materials available are:

Aluminum – Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware resists staining & pitting).

Copper – Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily.

Stainless – Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.

Cast Iron – A slow heat conductor however will retain heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached.

Porcelain-enamel on metal – Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material.

Glass – Slow heat conductor.

*These settings are based for medium-weight metal or aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using other types of pans.

Fig. 2

A CAUTION

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).

Correct flame

3 IMPORTANT

•    Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt they may permantely damage the cooktop surface.

   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 push in and turn knob to desired setting. Use caution when lighting surface burners manually.

A CAUTION

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.

1^ NOTES

DO NOT cook with the surface control knob left in the LITE position. The electronic ignitor will continue to spark if the control knob is left in the LITE position.

When setting any surface control knob to the LITE position, all electronic surface ignitors will spark at the same time. However, only the surface burner you are setting will ignite.

Setting surface controls

Your gas appliance may be equipped with many different sized surface burners. The ability to heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as the burner size increases.

The smaller simmer burner (some models) is best suited for simmering delicate sauces, etc.

The standard size (9,000 BTU) burners may be used for most surface cooking needs.

The larger quick boil burner or burners (some models) are best used when bringing large quantities of liquid to temperature and when preparing larger quantities of food.

It is important to select cookware that is suitable for the amount and type of food being prepared. Select a burner and flame size appropriate for the cookware size.

Setting a surface burner

1.    Place cooking utensil on center of surface burner grate. Make sure the cooking untensil 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.

Home Canning

Be sure to read and observe all the following points when home canning with your appliance. Check with the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) website and be sure to read all the information they have available as well as follow their recommendations for canning procedures.

   Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning. Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom (see “Cookware material types” in the Before setting surface controls section).

   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.

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.


Quick Bake (some models)

Benefits of the Quick Bake feature

—    Foods may cook up to 25 to 30% faster, saving time and energy.

—    Multiple rack baking.

—    No special pans or bakeware needed.

How Quick Bake works

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

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

Suggestions for Quick Bake

When baking

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

2.    Reduce oven temperature 25°F from recipe’s recommended oven temperature. Follow the remainder of the recipe’s instructions using the minimum recommended cook time.

3.    When using 2 oven racks at the same time, place in positions 2 & 5 for best results (See Fig. 1).

When roasting

1.    Preheating is not necessary when roasting foods using

Quick Bake.

2.    Since Quick Bake 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.    Do not cover foods when dry roasting – this will keep the air from circulating around the food.

Setting Quick Bake

The oven may be programmed to Quick Bake at any temperature from 300°F to 550°F (147°C to 287°C). The factory preset Quick Bake temperature is 350°F (177°C).

To set Quick Bake

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

2.    Within 5 seconds, press the A or V. The display will show “350°F (177°C).” By pressing and holding the A or V , the temperature can be adjusted in 5°F increments (1°C if control is set to display Celsius).

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

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

4.    To cancel Quick Bake, press cancel.

To change the oven temperature after Quick Bake has started

1.    Press . Once the oven has reached set

temperature be sure to double check the bake temperature at this time.

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

If NOTES

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

Layer cakes will have better results using the bake pad.

The Quick Bake fan will take 6 minutes to begin rotating once the Quick Bake feature has been activated.


SETTING OVEN CONTROLS Setting broil

Use the broil feature to cook meats that require direct exposure to flame heat for optimum browing results.

When broiling always remember to arrange the oven racks while oven is still cool. Position the oven rack as suggested in the broil settings table (See Fig. 3).

To set Broil

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

6.    Place the broiler pan and insert on the oven rack (if equipped-See Figs. 1 & 2).

7.    Close the oven door.

8.    Broil on one side until food is browned. Turn and broil food on 2nd side. For recommended broil settings and times refer to Fig. 3.

9.    When broiling is finished press cancel.

If NOTE

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

A WARNING

Should an oven fire occur, close the oven door and turn the oven OFF. If the fire continues, use a fire extinguisher. DO NOT put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive.

A CAUTION

To insure proper results when broiling use ONLY Electrolux Home Products, Inc. approved broil pan & insert.

The broiler pan and the insert (some models) allows grease to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler. DO NOT use the pan without the insert. DO NOT cover the insert with foil; the exposed grease could ignite. DO NOT use the broil pan without the insert or cover the insert with aluminum foil. The exposed fat could ignite.

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

•    Make sure cord/plug is plugged correctly into outlet.

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

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

Oven portion of appliance does not operate.

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

Surface burners do not ignite.

•    Surface control knob was not completely turned to LITE. Push in & turn the surface control knob to LITE until burner ignites and then turn control knob to desired flame size.

•    Burner ports are clogged. With the burner OFF, use a small-gauge wire or needle to burner head slots and ignition ports. See “Cleaning the cooktop and surface burners” in the Care & Cleaning section for additional cleaning instructions.

•    Range power cord is disconnected from outlet (electric ignition models only). Be sure power cord is securely plugged into the power outlet.

•    Electrical power outage (electric ignition models only). Burners can be lit manually. See section on Setting Surface Controls.

Surface burner flame only part way around burner cap.

•    Burner slots or ports are clogged. With the surface burner OFF, clean ports with a small-gauge wire or needle.

•    Moisture is present after cleaning. Lightly fan the flame & allow burner to operate until flame is full. Dry the surface burners thoroughly following the instructions under “Cleaning the cooktop and surface burners” provided in

the Care & Cleaning section.

Surface burner flame is orange.

• Dust particles in main gas line. Allow the burner to operate a few minutes until flame turns blue. In coastal areas, a slightly orange flame is unavoidable due to salt air.

Self-cleaning cycle does not work.

•    Oven control not set properly. Follow instructions under Self-cleaning.

•    Self-cleaning cycle was interrupted. Follow steps under “Stopping or Interrupting a Self-cleaning cycle” under Self-cleaning.

BEFORE YOU CALL • Solutions to common problems

Problem

Solution

Soil not completely removed after selfcleaning cycle.

• Failure to clean bottom, front top of oven, frame of oven or door area outside oven seal. These areas are not in the self-cleaning area, but get hot enough to burn on residue. Clean these areas before the self-cleaning cycle is started. Burned-on residue can be cleaned with a stiff nylon brush and water or a nylon scrubber. Be careful not to damage the oven gasket.

Oven smokes excessively during broiling.

•    Incorrect setting. Follow broiling instructions in Setting Oven Controls.

•    Make sure oven door closed.

•    Meat too close to upper burner. Reposition the broil rack to provide proper clearance between the meat & the burner. Preheat the oven.

•    Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut remaining fatty edges to prevent curling, but do not cut into lean.

•    Broiler pan and insert wrong side up and grease not draining. Always place grid on the broiler pan with ribs up & slots down to allow grease to drip into pan (some models).

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

Flames inside oven or smoking from oven vent.

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

Oven control panel beeps & displays any

F code error (for example F10, F11,

F13, F14, F15, F30, F31 or F90).

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

Oven light does not work.

• Be sure the light is secure in the socket. Also see “Changing & replacing the oven light” section.

Appliance is not level.

•    Be sure floor is level, strong & stable enough to adequately support range.

•    If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.

•    Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven rack. Adjust leveling legs at base of appliance until the rack is level.

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

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

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

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

Adhere to the following self-clean 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 (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 effortlessly.

•    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 temperatu res. DO NOT a llow 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).
