A WARNING

•    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.

•    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.

•    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.

•    DO NOT LEAVE CHILDREN ALONE — to avoid injuries or burns children should not be left alone or unattended in the area where the range is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the range including the storage drawer, lower broiler drawer, lower oven or warmer drawer.

A CAUTION

•    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.

   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.

•    User servicing — Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the manuals. All other servicing should be done only by a qualified technician. This may reduce the risk of personal injury and damage to the range.

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 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 cooktop, surfaces facing the cooktop, the oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings, oven door and window.


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.


4


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 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.

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.

•    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.

•    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.

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 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 and may be placed in most rack positions. Similar to the flat rack but comes with a 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.

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 a flat rack.

The Effortless™ Oven Rack (some models) instructions are provided later in this section. Be sure to read the important notes.

The bottom oven rack (some models) should only be used in the lowest oven rack position. This rack may be used when placing large cuts of meat in the oven.

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.


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 COMPLETELY 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.

A WARNING

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

A CAUTION

To avoid possible burns DO NOT touch burner caps or surface burner grates after using any of the surface burners. The surface burner grates, caps, and areas around them may still be very hot. Provide sufficient time for these areas and the parts to completely cool before handling.

Before operating the cooktop, check for proper burner cap placement

Visually check for proper burner cap placement before operating any of the surface burners (See Fig.1).

If any of the surface burner caps appears to be resting unevenly, not centered or appears unlevel on the burner head (Fig. 2), be sure to correct the burner cap position on the burner head before starting the surface burner.

Using the griddle (some models)

Before first use:

   Wash griddle in hot soapy water.

   Rinse and dry completely.

Using the griddle:

Remove the center burner grate (some models) and carefully replace with the griddle.

For best results, preheat the griddle for 5 minutes on medium or a medium low setting. Slow preheating provides more even heat distribution during the cooking process. Do not preheat the griddle on Hi setting. Preheating using a Hi burner setting may warp the griddle and prevent even heat distribution.

After each use:

   To prevent possible rusting, store in a dry place and keep uncovered.

   After each use, clean with a stiff brush and hot water only, then rinse.

   Dry immediately.

•    Do not clean griddle in the dishwasher.



Be sure to review the Care & Cleaning section for complete detailed information about cleaning the burner caps and proper burner cap placement.


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.

Use quality cookware in good condition

For the best possible cooking results when using the cooktop, always use quality cookware in good condition. Pans should have flat bottoms that sit level on the burner grate. Before using cookware, check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the cookware (Fig. 1).

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.

A CAUTION

Do not place flammable items such as plastic wrappings, spoon holders or plastic salt and pepper shakers 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.


^ NOTE

The size and type of utensil used, the amount and type of food being cooked will influence the settings needed to obtain the best cooking results.


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.

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

Fig. 2


OFF    lite hi 6    5    4    3    2 lo

3 IMPORTANT

•    DO NOT cook with a surface control knob left in the lite position. The electronic ignitor will continue to spark. Turn control knob out of lite position and adjust the flame size.

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

Setting surface controls

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

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.

The standard size burner or burners may be used for most surface cooking needs. Use the smaller simmer burner (some models) when simmering delicate sauces, etc.

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

Setting a surface burner:

1.    Place cooking utensil on center of surface burner grate. Be sure the cooking utensil rests stable on the burner grate.

2.    Push the desired surface control knob in and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF position (Fig. 1).

3.    Release the surface control knob and rotate to the lite position. Visually check that the burner has a steady gas flame.

4.    Once the surface burner has a flame, push the surface control knob in and turn counterclockwise to the desired flame size setting. Use the knob markings and adjust the flame as needed.

A CAUTION

Do not place flammable items such as plastic wrappings, spoon holders or plastic salt and pepper shakers 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.

Fig. 1

If NOTES

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

•    In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface burners may 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. Once the burner ignites, push in and turn knob out of lite then to

the desired flame setting. Use caution when lighting surface burners manually.

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.

•    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.

•    When using two canners at the same time, stagger the canners on the burners. This will allow for better air flow to the burners. Do not block air to the burners.

•    NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over two different surface cooking areas at the same time. This may cause uneven heating results.

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


convect

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.

2. Press start.

CONVECT BAKE

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.

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.

2.    Press convect convert.

To stop convect convert at any time press cancel.

When convect convert is active with a bake time or a delay start setting, the convect convert feature will display the message “CF” for check food when the bake time is 75% complete (See Fig. 1). At this time the oven control will sound 1 long beep at regular intervals until the set bake time has finished.

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.

handle

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.


If NOTES

•    When using convect convert, any cook time reductions needed may vary depending on the oven set temperature.

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

•    The convection fan will not start until 6 minutes after setting the convect convert feature.

•    The minimum bake time setting allowed using the convect convert feature is 20 minutes.

3 IMPORTANT 5

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 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:

1.    Press Probe keypad and hold for 6 seconds.

5.    Press Probe keypad.

6.    Enter the desired target food temperature using the numeric keypads and set temperature for food type (Refer to Fig. 1). The minimum target setting is 140oF/60oC; the maximum target setting is 210oF/99oC. The default target is 170°F/77°C.

7.    Press s*ar* to accept the target temperature.

8.    Set for quick preheat, bake, convect bake, convect roast or convect convert and if necessary adjust the oven temperature accordingly.

9.    The control will provide 3 beeps when the internal target temperature is reached. 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)

ProbEPP

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.

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.

NOTES

•    Always start with hot food when using the Keep Warm Drawer. Do not heat cold food in the KeepWarm Drawer.

•    The Keep Warm Drawer is equipped with a catch-that may require extra force when opening or closing the drawer.

•    Self clean can not be set when the Keep Warm-Drawer is turned on.

A CAUTION

Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food or plates from the warmer drawer as cookware andplates will be hot and you can be burned.


Setting Keep Warm Drawer (some models)

The purpose of the Keep Warm Drawer is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperatures. Examples are vegetables, gravies, meats, casseroles, biscuits, rolls and pastries. It is not recommended to heat cold food in the warmer drawer; always start with hot food.

The Keep Warm Drawer may also be used to warm dinner plates. All food placed in the Keep Warm Drawer should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain quality.

A WARNING

•    DO NOT LEAVE CHILDREN ALONE —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 warmer drawer.

•    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.

•    Storage in or on appliance-flammable materials should not be stored in an oven, warmer drawer, near surface units. 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.

Keep Warm Drawer rack positions

The Keep Warm Drawer rack may be positioned in the

drawer two ways:

•    In the upright position to allow low profile food items to be placed both under and on top of the rack (for example, rolls or biscuits on top of rack and a casserole dish underneath).

•    In the downward position to allow for light weight food items and empty cookware on rack (for example, rolls or pastries and dinner plates).


3 IMPORTANT

Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic wrap can melt onto the drawer surfaces and be very difficult to clean up afterwards.

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:

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 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.

•    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.

Restarting a self-clean cycle after a power outage:

If a self-clean cycle was interrupted by a power failure, your oven may not have thoroughly cleaned. If so, once power is restored, the oven has cooled and the oven door has unlocked, if needed, set again for self-clean.

Starting another self-clean after cancellation:

If a self-clean cycle was cancelled using the cancel keypad before the oven was finished cleaning, you may wish to set for another self-clean cycle.

If self-clean was cancelled shortly after being started, and the oven interior did not reach high self-clean temperatures, the next clean cycle may be set as soon as the oven door unlocks from the cancelled clean cycle.

If the oven became hot enough from the cancelled selfclean cycle, you may be required to wait up to 4 hours before the control will allow another self-clean cycle to start.

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 shows “4:00”, the control will not allow for another self-clean cycle to start for the next 4 hours.

Example: To program a self-cleaning cycle with a delay start time of 9:00 o’clock:

Step    Press

1.    The oven should be empty and all

oven racks removed. Remove all items from the cooktop. Be sure the oven door is completely closed.

2.    Press delay start.

3.    Enter 9 0 0.

4.    Press start.

CARE & CLEANING

A WARNING

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

3 IMPORTANT

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

Cleaning the cooktop and surface burners

A CAUTION

To avoid possible burns DO NOT attempt the cleaning instructions provided below before turning OFF the surface burners and provide sufficient time for the cooktop and all cooktop parts to cool.

To clean recessed and contoured areas of cooktop

Routinely clean the cooktop. Wipe with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry to avoid scratches. If a spill occurs on or in the recessed or contoured areas, blot up spill with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry.

To clean burner grates

•    Clean when the grates are cool.

•    Use nonabrasive plastic scrubbing pad and mild abrasive cleanser.

•    Food soils containing acids may affect the finish. Clean immediately after the grates are cool.

•    Thoroughly dry grates immediately following cleaning.

To clean burner caps

•    Remove caps from burner heads after they have cooled.

•    Clean heavy soils with a plastic scrubbing pad and absorbent cloth.

•    Thoroughly dry burner caps immediately following cleaning including the bottom and inside of cap.

•    Do not use abrasive cleaners. They can scratch porcelain.

•    Do not clean burner caps in the dishwasher.

•    Check for correct burner cap placement after having removed and replaced the burner caps for cleaning.

Cleaning the cooktop and surface burners Aluminum foil and oven liners (cont’d)

 

A CAUTION

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

 

3 IMPORTANT

•    The burner heads are secured to the cooktop and must be cleaned in place. DO NOT remove from cooktop.

•    For proper flow of gas and ignition of burners DO

NOT allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other material to enter the orifice port opening.

To clean the surface burner heads

 

For proper gas flow it may be necessary to clean the burner head and slots. To clean, remove burner cap and use a clean DAMP cloth to soak up any excessive spills.

Remove any food from

 

ignition port

 

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 interior oven light

between the burner slots using a small nonabrasive brush like a toothbrush. Afterwards wipe up using a damp cloth. For stubborn soils, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean.

 

To clean the burner head ignition ports

Each burner head has a small ignition port (Fig. 1). Should you experience ignition problems it may be that this port hole is partially blocked with soil. With the burner head in place, use a small wire gauge needle or the end of a paper clip to clear the ignition port (center burner not shown).

 

After cleaning the burner heads or ignition ports, be sure to replace the burner caps properly on the burner heads. See section “Checking for proper burner cap placement”.

 

Aluminum foil and oven liners

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.

For the first few uses, follow your recipe times and temperature recommendation carefully. If you feel the oven is too hot or cool from your previous cooking experience, try adjusting the oven temperature. See “Adjusting the oven temperature” in

Setting Oven Controls section.

Odor or some smoking coming from the oven during first few uses. New appliance. It is possible to experience some odors and/or a small amount of smoke from a new range. The odor will diminish after first using the oven. Before cooking for the first time, turn the oven ON to 400°F for 30 minutes to one hour. This will allow for an initial burn-in period and help eliminate odors. If necessary, ventilate the kitchen by opening a window.
Appliance makes popping sounds. Oven expands and contracts while heating and self-clean. This is normal.

Control panel makes clicking noises.

The oven control is cycling the oven ON and OFF. This is normal.
Warm air or steam from oven vent area. Moisture coming from food while cooking in oven. This is normal. To ensure the best possible results, do not

block the oven vent area when cooking.

Poor baking or roasting results. Incorrect oven control setting. See Setting Oven Controls section and review instructions for the desired cooking function.
Oven vent may be blocked. Clear any cookware or items that is blocking the oven vent area.
Incorrect cookware type or size. Dark or dull pans absorb more heat than shiny bakeware resulting in overbrowning of some foods. Try reducing the oven temperature or cook time to prevent overbrowning. Dark pans are recommended for pies; shiny pans for cakes, cookies and muffins.
Bake started with cold oven. Try preheating the oven before placing food on oven rack.
Incorrect oven rack position. Adjust oven rack position upward or downward as needed.
Inadequate space around food items or air flow is blocked by oven liner or using aluminum foil as a liner. Try centering food in oven for single items. When cooking multiple food items space cookware to allow air to circulate completely around the food items. Review “Aluminum foil and liners” in the Care & Cleaning section.
Oven temperature or time settings. Try adjusting the recipe’s recommended temperature or cooking time. If you still feel the oven is too hot or cool, try

adjusting the oven temperature. See “Adjusting the oven temperature” in Setting Oven Controls section.
