IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN

•    Use care when opening oven door , lower oven door or warmer drawer (if equipped)—Stand to the side of the range when opening the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or replace food in the oven.

•    Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. The oven vent is located under the left rear surface element if your model is equipped with coil elements. The oven vent is located below the backguard for models equipped with ceramic-glass cook tops. Touching the surfaces in this area when the oven is operating may cause severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or near the oven vent. These items could melt or ignite.

•    Placement of interior oven racks. Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot use extreme caution. Use potholders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot heating elements in the oven. Remove all utensils from the rack before moving.

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

broiler pan and its insert allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler. Do not

cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil. Exposed fat and grease could ignite.

•    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.

FOR CERAMIC-GLASS COOK TOP MODELS

•    Do not cook on broken cook top—If cook top should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cook top and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.

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

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR RANGE

A CAUTION

Before manually cleaning any part of the range, be sure all controls are turned OFF and the range is COOL. The range may be hot and can cause burns.

•    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.

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 g iven off during the self-clea ning cycle of any range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.

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 keypad controls each surface cooking zone. Place a pan with food on the cooking zone before turning it on, and turn the cooking zone off before removing the pan.

•    Use proper pan size —This appliance is equipped with induction cooking zones of different sizes. Select utensils specifically manufactured and approved for induction cooking that have flat bottoms that match the induction cooking zone size. Proper relationship of utensil to cooking zone will also improve efficiency.

•    Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend over adjacent cooking zones—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 cooking zones.

•    Never leave surface cooking zones unattended — Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry could be damaged.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

For models factory-equipped with a power cord:

For personal safety, this appliance 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.

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 may be equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug. For your protection against shock hazard, it should be plugged directly into a properly grounded receptacle. Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug

See the INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS packaged with this appliance for complete installation and grounding instructions.

Benefits of induction surface cooking Induction cookware

Fast and efficient – The induction cooking zones heat faster while using less energy. Induction power levels are quick to boil and efficient when simmering.

A cooler cooktop – A unique feature of the induction cooking zones is whether turned on or off, the cooking zones remain cooler than radiant type elements. Virtually no wasted heat is produced since the heat begins with the presence of cookware.

Easy cleanups – The cooler cooking zones make cleanup easier. Spills resist sticking or burning so they wipe up easily.

Magnetic detector – The cooking zone has a sensor that automatically detects whether cookware is magnetic. This will reduce accidental “turn-ons.”

Pan size detection – The pan size recognition sensor automatically detects and adapts the induction cooking zones to the pan sizes in use for consistent, more even cooking.

More responsive – The induction cooking zones are more responsive than their electric or gas counterparts because only the pan heats. This type of cooking heats easier and will be just as responsive when reducing to a simmer.

About the induction cooktop

Your cooktop is equipped with four differently-sized induction cooking zones and a radiant heat warmer zone.

Induction cooking directly heats the pan; heating will only begin when cookware is properly placed on the cooking
zones.

3 IMPORTANT

Before using the induction cooking zones, be sure to carefully read and follow these cookware recommendations and the instructions in the pan sensing section.

When purchasing pans for use on the induction cooktop, look for cookware specifically identified by the manufacturer as induction ready, induction capable, or a similar statement by the manufacturer that the cookware is specifically designed for induction cooking.

The cooking zones will not activate if the cookware is not constructed with a base magnetic material. To check if the cookware base material is suitable, use a magnet to test (See Fig. 1). If a magnet sticks to the bottom of the cookware, the material type is correct.

Fig. 1

For the best possible surface cooking results, it is recommended to only use high quality heavy gauge cookware on the induction cooking zones.

Be sure to follow all the manufacturer’s recommendations when using cookware made for induction cooking.

Induction cookware types

The most common induction cookware types available are: Stainless steel – Generally, excellent for induction cooking. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.

Cast iron – Good for induction cooking. Cooks evenly. Do not slide cast iron cookware on cooktop. Cast iron cookware with a rough surface will scratch ceramic cooktop.

Porcelain-enamel on ferrous metal – Heating characteristics will vary depending on quality of base material. Porcelain-enamel coating must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktop.

3 IMPORTANT

Not all stainless steel cookware is magnetic; stainless steel is not always suitable for induction cooking.

7

When using the cooking zones

•    Be sure to use cooktop cookware made with a magnetic base material.

•    Use quality cooktop cookware with heavier bottoms for better heat distribution, allowing for more even cooking results.

•    Check that cookware bottom rests level on cooktop surface. Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good contact with the entire induction cooking zone area. Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the cookware (See Fig. 1).

•    Be sure cookware is properly balanced and does not tilt from a heavy handle.

•    Be sure that the pan size matches the amount of food to be prepared. The size and type of cookware used will influence the setting needed for best cooking results.

•    Never let cookware boil dry. This may cause permanent damage such as breakage, fusion, or marring that can affect the cooktop.

•    Use cookware that meets the minimum and maximum cookware size requirements for each cooking zone.

Moving cookware on smoothtop

It is recommended to always use heavier gauge high quality cookware on the cooking zones. Even high quality cookware can still scratch the cooktop surface. Do not slide cookware on the ceramic cooktop.

3 IMPORTANT

   Always lift cookware before moving on the ceramic glass smoothtop.

   Any cookware that has rough or dirty bottoms can mark and scratch the ceramic glass surface. Always start with clean cookware.

Sliding any type of cookware over the surface will scratch the cooktop over time. Scratches will make cleaning the ceramic cooktop difficult and degrade the appearance of the cooktop.

For more detailed information about the cooktop see “Cooktop maintenance” and “Cooktop cleaning” in the Care & Cleaning section.

8

Hot cookware and residual heat A CAUTION

•    Unlike radiant surface elements, the cooking zones will not glow red when they are hot. The glass surface may be hot from residual heat transferred from the cookware and burns may occur.

•    Do not touch hot cookware or pans directly with hands. Always use oven mitts or pot holders to protect hands from burns.

The type and size of cookware, cooking duration, the number of cooking zones in use and their power level settings are all factors that will affect the amount of heat that will spread beyond the cooking zones.

The induction cooking zones and areas surrounding the cooking zones may become hot enough to cause burns. Be sure to read all cautions.

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 home canning procedures.

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

Cookware Recommendations section).

•    Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no ridges that radiate from the bottom center when home canning using a range with a ceramic glass cooktop.

•    Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed 1 inch beyond the cooking zone markings.

It is recommended to use smaller diameter canners on ranges with ceramic glass or open coil electric cooktops.

•    Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more quickly.


• Use the highest heat setting when first bringing the water to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest possible setting to maintain that boil.

3 IMPORTANT

NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over 2 different surface cooking zones heating at the same time. This will cause uneven heating results and could cause the ceramic cooktop to fracture.

Pan sensing

The cooking zone sensors located below the cooktop surface require that certain cookware conditions are met before the induction cooking zones can operate.

The cooking zone display windows may display a pan sensing error message. If a cooking zone is activated and no cookware is detected, the affected induction cooking zone display window will flash with the last power level request setting (See Fig. 1). If the cookware does not meet the correct conditions, the cooking zones may not heat.

 

Correct    Incorrect

 

 

 

 

 

 

The conditions that may generate a flashing error message are illustrated in Figure 2. Use Figure 2 as a guide to help to correct the problem or problems before attempting to reactivate any of the cooking zones.

If the problem or problems are not corrected, the affected cooking zone will automatically deactivate after 3 minutes.

 

 

 

 

 

1^ NOTE

It is recommended that you lower the requested power level setting before correcting the pan sensing message.

 

 

• Pan is properly balanced.

 

 

Fig. 2

 

Pan sensing-induction cooking zones (cont’d)

Minimum pan size

Induction cooking zones require a minimum pan size in order to activate. The graphics on each cooking zone location are your guide to the correct minimum pan size for that zone.The shorter lines guide the minimum pan size (see Figure 1). The cookware bottom must meet the minimum area for the heating process to begin.

If a pan that is induction-capable is centered properly but is too small, the affected cooking zone display will flash the last power level setting and the pan will not heat. Select a larger pan that meets the minimum size requirement to activate the cooking zone.

See Figure 1 for the minimum pan size requirements for each cooking zone location.

Maximum recommended pan size

The graphics on each cooking zone location are your guide to the correct maximum pan size for that zone.The longer lines guide the maximum pan size (see Figure 1).

It is recommended to not use pans with bottoms that extend more than 1/2″ (13mm) beyond any of the longer line marks provided on the cooktop.

The cookware must make full contact with the ceramic glass surface. Cookware should not rest on or touch the metal edges of the cooktop.


Cooktop display windows

The range backguard provides a digital window for each of the cooking zones located on the cooktop. Power levels and messages are easily monitored and controlled using the window displays in combination with the corresponding control knobs.

Available power level settings

The cooktop control (Fig. 1) will display power levels ranging from Pb (power boost, Fig. 2), Hi (Fig. 3) to Lo (Fig. 4).

The settings between 9.5 (Fig. 5) and 1.5 (Fig. 7) decrease and increase in 0.5 increments.

Use the “Suggested cooking zone power level settings table” provided in Setting Surface Controls section to determine the correct power level setting for the type of food you are preparing.

Pb (Power Boost) power level

When setting an induction cooking zone for Hi, the display will initially show Pb (Power Boost) power level for up to 10 minutes (See Fig. 1). After 10 minutes the cooking zone will automatically return to the Hi (Fig. 3) setting. The Pb setting is only available immediately after activating a cooking zone by turning the knob to Hi.

(HE) Hot surface window message

After using an induction cooking zone, the cooktop may become very hot. After turning any cooking zone OFF, the cooktop may remain HOT for some time. The corresponding HE (hot element – Fig. 8) message will remain ON until the cooktop has cooled.

ESEC Error Indicator Message (Er)

An error message will be displayed (flashing “Er“) (Fig. 6) at power up (or after a power failure) if ANY of the surface control knobs were left in the ON positions. If a power failure should ocur, be sure to set all of the 4 surface control knobs to the OFF position (See Fig. 1). This will reset the surface controls.

Be sure to reset the clock (See page 19). Once the surface controls have been set to the OFF positions and the clock has been set with the correct time of day, the surface controls should return to normal operation. If the surface controls do not function and the “Er” message remains in any display after following these procedures, contact an authorized servicer for assistance.

(- -) Lockout window message

The (- -) message will appear whenever the Lockout, Selfclean or Sabbath feature is active (See Fig. 9). Refer to the Lockout instructions for more details.

3 IMPORTANT

The induction cooking zones will not operate when the oven is set for Sabbath mode. For more details on the Sabbath feature, see Setting Oven Controls section.


Power boost (Pb)

High (8.0-Hi)

Operating induction cooking zones

Start most surface cooking on a higher setting and then adjust to a lower setting to finish cooking.

The suggested settings (provided in Fig. 1) may vary slightly depending on the cookware design, quality and amount of food being prepared.

Be sure to use quality cookware that is constructed with magnetic base material and meets the minimum and maximum pan size requirements.

Suggested cooking zone power level settings Settings    Type of cooking

Use to start heating pans that contain large amounts of food or to bring large pans of water to boil

Start most foods, bring water to a boil, pan broiling

Medium high (5.0 – 8.0) Continue a rapid boil, fry, deep fat fry

Medium (4.0 – 5.0) Maintain a slow boil, thicken sauces and gravies or steam vegetables

Pan preheat recommendations

Be aware that induction cooking may decrease the amount of time required to preheat a cooking utensil compared to cooking on a radiant element cooktop or gas surface burner.

Whenever using the cooktop or oven always pay close attention to all food items cooking and remain very attentive until all the cooking processes are complete.

3 IMPORTANT

Remember that induction surface cooking will initially heat the cooking utensil very quickly.

To operate induction cooking zones:

Step

1.    Place induction cookware on the desired cooking zone.

2.    To activate the cooking zone, push in and turn the control knob in either direction to the desired setting.

3.    Adjust the power level by turning the knob. This will decrease or increase the power level. Power levels 9.5 through 1.5 decrease and increase by 0.5 increments. Lo is the lowest power level available.

4.    Once cooking is complete, turn the control knob to OFF and remove cookware.

Medium low (2.0 – 4.0) Keep foods cooking, poach, stew (3.0 or lower is a simmer setting)


Low (Lo – 2.0)

Keep warm, melt, simmer


Fig. 1


If NOTES

•    The suggested power level settings shown in Fig. 1 are based on cooking with medium sized pans with lids. Be sure to make any further setting adjustments needed for best surface cooking results.

•    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.


A CAUTION

   Unlike radiant surface elements, the induction cooking zones will not glow red when they are hot. The glass surface may be hot from residual heat transferred from the cookware and burns may occur.

•    Do not touch hot cookware or pans directly with hands. Always use oven mitts or pot holders to protect hands from burns.

   The cooking zones may appear to have cooled after they have been turned OFF. The glass surface may still be hot from residual heat and burns may occur if the cooktop is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.

•    Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on the cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite if placed too close to hot cookware.

Cooktop operational noises

The electronic processes involved with induction cooking may create some background noises. You may hear a slight “buzzing” sound when cooking on the cooktop.

These noises are part of the induction cooking process are considered normal.

Some cookware will “buzz” depending on the construction or base material. The “buzz” may be more noticeable if the contents of the pan are cold. As the pan heats up, the noise will decrease. The noise will also decrease if the power level setting is reduced.

NOTE

When using the induction cooktop, operational noises are more noticeable while cooking at the “Pb” level. Very loud noises are not part of normal induction cooking.


3 IMPORTANT

   The HE (hot element) message will appear in the display windows once a heating element or cooking zone is turned OFF and will remain ON until the heating surface area or areas have cooled sufficiently.

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

   If the cookware is moved from the center of any active induction cooking zone, the pan sensor will detect the situation and the cookware will no longer heat. The affected cooking zone display window will flash until the cookware is moved back to center of cooking zone. If the cookware is placed back properly centered on the cooking zone, the zone will resume heating. The cooking zone will remember the power level setting for up to 3 minutes before the cooking zone will automatically shut OFF.

Oven vent location

The oven vent is located under the left side of 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.


Warmer zone

The purpose of the warmer zone is to keep foods at serving temperature, such as: vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and oven-safe dinner plates.

Always start with hot food. Do not heat cold food on the warmer zone. All food placed on the warmer zone should be covered with a lid to maintain quality.

For best results, when warming pastries or breads, the cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape. Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very difficult to remove. Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use.

Warmer zone temperature selection

If a particular food is not listed (See Fig 2), start with the medium heat level and adjust as needed. Most foods can be kept at serving temperatures by using the medium heat level.

To operate warmer zone:

Step

1.    Place cookware on the warmer zone.

2.    Push in and turn the warmer zone’s control knob to the desired setting, indicated by the semi-circle line around the knob. You may turn the knob either way (left or right) to activate the burner. (The warmer zone indicator light will turn on).

3.    When finished, turn the control knob to the OFF position.

A CAUTION

   Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned off. The glass surface may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched before it has cooled.

•    Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on top of the range when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the surface elements.

   The warmer zone is radiant heat, but it will not glow red when it is hot.To avoid possible burns always use potholders or oven mitts when moving food to and from the warmer zone as cookware and plates will be hot.

The flat oven rack or flat handle oven rack (some models) may be used for most cooking needs.

The half rack (some models) design comes with a removable section that allows for taller cooking utensils.

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 roasting large cuts of meat.

The Effortless™ Oven Rack (some models) is described in the “EffortlessOven Rack system” section.

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).

Air circulation in the oven

For best baking results allow at least 2 inches (5 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.

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.

3 IMPORTANT

Only the Effortless™ Oven Rack should be used in oven rack position 2. Placing any other rack in rack position 2 will prevent the oven door from fully closing.


Effortless™ Oven Rack system

Some models are equipped with a special oven rack system

that automatically extends the oven rack to assist in access

to your food items. This rack extends when 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 gliding ability of the Effortless™ Oven Rack system will be damaged and oven racks will loose their shiny finish and may 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 before attempting to assemble or disassemble the Effortless™ Oven Rack system. Never pick up hot oven racks or 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.

For batter and dough-based baked good such as cakes, pastries and breads, use the standard bake function for best results


Convection Cooking

Convect uses a fan to circulate heat inside the oven. Improved heat distribution allows for fast, even cooking and browning. It gives better baking results when using two racks at the same time.

Benefits of the convect feature

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

—    No special pans or bakeware needed.

—    Recommended cooking method for baked goods such as cakes, biscuits, pastries, and bread.

^ NOTES

   When choosing between the convect features, use the convect key to choose convect bake, convect roast or convect broil functions.

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

•    The convection fan will begin rotating once convection bake or convection roast has been activated.

CONVECT BAKE

Fig. 4

Convect roast

Suggestion for convect roast

1.    Preheating is not necessary when roasting foods using

convect roast.

2.    Since convect roast 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 prevent the meat from browning properly.

Convect bake

Suggestions for convect baking

1.    Preheat the oven when baking foods such as cookies, biscuits and breads.

2.    Reduce oven temperature 25°F/14°C from recipe’s listed oven temperature. Follow the minimum recommended cook time.

3.    When using a single oven rack, position rack so cookware is in the middle of the oven.

4.    When using two oven racks at the same time, place in positions 2 and 5 for best results (see Fig. 2). Place pans as shown in Figure 3.

Convect broil

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

Suggestions for convect broil:

1.    When using a broil pan, carefully follow all recommended instructions for placing the oven racks as provided in the “Broil” section in this Use & Care Guide.

2.    Since convect broil cooks food faster, reduce the cook time by 25% from the recommended cook time of your recipe (check the food at this time). If necessary, increase cook time until the desired doneness is obtained.

3.    Close the oven door when using convect broil.

Setting convect convert

The convect convert feature allows you to convert any baking recipe using the convect (convection) feature. The control uses the normal recipe settings and adjusts to a lower temperature for convection baking. Convect convert can only be set with the convect bake feature.

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

1^ NOTE

The convection fan will begin rotating once convection broil has been activated.

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

   The minimum amount of cook time allowed using the convect convert feature with a bake time or a delay time bake setting is 20 minutes.

   Layer cakes will have better results using the normal bake feature.


Probe

Use the probe for best results when cooking foods such as roasts, hams or poultry. The probe also works well with foods such as meat loaf and casseroles.

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

handle

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 your hands.

Proper probe placement in food:

   Insert the probe so that the tip is centered in the thickest part of the food (see Fig. 2). For best results, do not allow the probe temperature sensor to contact bone, fat, gristle, or 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.

3 IMPORTANT

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

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

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

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

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

Setting the Sabbath ModeFeature (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:\\www.star-k.org.

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.

The bake time and delay start pads 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 (the oven temperature adjustment feature 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 Sabbath mode is active, the oven will remain ON until cancelled. The Sabbath mode will override the factory preset 6-Hour Energy Saving feature.

If the oven light(s) are needed during the Sabbath, press the oven light key 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 made during active Sabbath feature active be followed with 2 presses of the start pad. 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 500°F. Try to set the desired oven temperature again.

To program the oven to bake at 350°F and then activate the Sabbath Day feature:

Step    Press

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

2.    Arrange the oven racks and place the food in the oven and close door.

3.    Press bake.

4.    Press start.

5.    If a timed bake or delayed timed bake is needed then enter the time in this step.

If not, skip this step and continue to step 6. Refer to the bake time or delay start instructions.

Remember the oven will shut-off after completing a timed bake or delay start and therefore may only be used once during the Sabbath/Jewish Holidays.

The maximum delay start time is 11 hours & 59 minutes.

6.    Press and hold both the

bake time and delay start pads for at least 3 seconds simultaneously.

The control will beep and SAb will appear in the display (See Fig. 1). The oven is properly set for the Sabbath once SAb appears in the display.

The induction cooktop will not operate when the oven is set for Sabbath Day feature. The cooktop displays will show the cooktop lockout ” – – ” messages whenever the Sabbath Day feature is active (Fig. 2).

bake time and delay start pads for at least 3 seconds. The control will beep and SAb will disappear from the display. The oven is no longer programmed for the Sabbath feature.

What to do during a power failure or power interruption after the Sabbath feature was activated:

Should you experience a power failure or interruption, the oven will shut off. When power is restored the oven will not turn back on automatically. The control will remember that it is set for the Sabbath and the oven display will show the message “SF” for Sabbath failure (Fig. 1).

NOTES

•    If a delay start time longer than 12 hours (maximum of 24 hours) in advance is desired, set the display mode for the 24 hour setting. For detailed instructions see the section “Setting 12 or 24 hour display modes”.

•    It is not advised to attempt to activate any other program feature except BAKE while the Sabbath feature is active. ONLY the following key pads will function correctly with the Sabbath feature: 0-9 number pads, bake, start & cancel. NO OTHER KEYS can be used once the Sabbath feature is activated. The cooktop will also be inactive.

•    You may change the oven temperature once baking has started. Press bake , enter the oven temperature change (170 to 500F°) and press start. Remember that

the oven control will no longer beep or display any changes once the oven is set for the Sabbath feature.

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


After the Sabbath observance, turn OFF the Sabbath feature. At the same time press and hold both the

time + start pads for at least 3 seconds.

SF will disappear from the display and the oven may be used with all normal functions.


Self-cleaning

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.

Your oven allows you to set 3 different self-cleaning cycle durations. A 3-hour cleaning time is best used for normal cleaning; 2-hour time for light soils and a 4-hour time option for heavier burnt-on soils.

3 IMPORTANT

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. 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 (See Fig. 1).

•    Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils and ANY ALUMINUM FOIL. These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures and will melt.

•    Completely remove ALL OVEN RACKS and ANY ACCESSORIES. If the oven racks are not removed they will lose their special coating properties and no longer slide in and out of the oven cavity easily.

•    Remove any excessive spillovers. Any spills on the oven bottom should be wiped-up and removed before starting the self-cleaning cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high 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).

A CAUTION

During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the range can become very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave small children unattended near the appliance.

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

DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution when opening the door after the self-cleaning cycle is completed. The oven may still be VERY HOT.

A CAUTION

Before manually cleaning any part of the range, be sure all controls are turned OFF and the range is COOL. The range may be hot and can cause burns.

If it becomes necessary to stop a self-clean cycle once it has been activated:

1.    Press cancel.

2.    Allow enough time for the oven to cool and for the “door OPn” message to appear (Fig. 4). When this message turns off the oven door may be opened. If a self-clean cycle was active, then stopped or interrupted by power failure, it may be necessary to run a selfclean cycle again to thoroughly clean the oven. Please be aware that you may need to allow up to four hours before self-clean can be started again.

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.


3 IMPORTANT

As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven door lock will begin to close automatically. “door Loc” will appear in the display (See Fig. 1). DO NOT open the oven door while “door Loc” is on (allow 15 seconds for the oven door to completely lock).

Cooktop maintenance 3 IMPORTANT

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

Cooktop cleaning A CAUTION

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


Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply some of the glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner supplied with your new appliance. Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or no-scratch cleaning pad. This will make cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. The special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective finish on the glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions.

Sliding metal pans on the cooktop can cause metal markings on the cooktop surface. These marks should be removed immediately after the cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning cream. Metal marks can become permanent if not removed prior to future use.

Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or ceramic-coated) with rough or dirty bottoms can mark or scratch the cooktop surface.

do not:

•    Slide anything across the cooktop.

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

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

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

For light to moderate soil:

Apply a few drops of glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a non-abrasive plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue.

For heavy, burned on soil:

Apply a few drops of glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a non-abrasive plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad, applying pressure as needed. Do not use the pad you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.

If soils remain, carefully scrape soils with a metal razor blade scraper, holding scraper at a 30 degree angle to the surface. Remove loosened soils with cooktop cleaning cream and buff surface clean.

Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:

These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled or melted onto the cooktop surface. Permanent damage (such as pitting of the cooktop surface) may occur if not removed immediately.

After turning the surface elements OFF, use a razor blade scraper or a metal spatula with a mitt and scrape the soil from the hot surface (as illustrated). Allow cooktop to cool, and use the same method for heavy or burned on soils.


Cooktop cleaning (cont’d)

A WARNING

DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health and can chemically damage the ceramic glass surface.

Do not use the following on the cooktop:

•    Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as metal and some nylon pads. They may scratch the cooktop, making it more difficult to clean.

•    Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach, ammonia or oven cleaners, as they may etch or discolor the cooktop.

•    Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as they can leave soil or lint on the cooktop which can burn and cause discoloration.

3 IMPORTANT

Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use an abrasive type cleaning pad. Only use cleaning products that have been specifically designed for ceramic glass cooktops.

Caution for aluminum use on the cooktop

• Aluminum Foil – Use of aluminum foil on a hot cooktop may damage the ceramic cooktop. Do not use thin aluminum cooking utensils or allow aluminum foil to touch the ceramic cooktop under ANY circumstances.

Replacing the oven interior light A CAUTION

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.

Problem

 

Solution

 

Poor baking results.

 

Appliance is not level.

 

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

 

Surface cookware seems too hot or not hot enough.

Induction cooking zone does not heat cookware or does not heat evenly.

 

Cooking zones do not glow when heating.

 

Many factors affect baking results. Make sure the proper oven rack position is used. Center food in the oven and space pans to allow air to circulate. Allow the oven to preheat to the set temperature before placing food in the oven. Try adjusting the recipe’s recommended temperature or baking time. If you feel the oven is too hot or cool, see “Adjusting Oven Temperature” section in this Use & Care Guide.

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.

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.

Incorrect induction cooktop power level setting. Adjust power level setting higher or lower as needed.

Be sure the correct surface control is activated for the cooking zone.

Be sure to use the correct cookware material type for induction cooking. Use cookware specifically identified by the manufacturer to use for induction cooking. If you’re not sure, use a magnet to test whether the cookware type will work. If a magnet sticks to the bottom of the cookware, the material type is correct for induction cooking.

Be sure to read about pan-sensing in the Induction Cooking section and correct any pan-sensing issues in the checklist provided.

Use quality heavier gauge cookware.

The induction cooking zones do not glow even when they are hot. Induction cooking uses electromagnetic energy to induce heat directly to the cookware.

Problem

 

Solution

 

Oven light does not work.

 

Oven smokes excessively during broiling.

 

Flames inside oven or smoking from oven vent.

 

Oven control beeps & displays any F or E error code message.

 

Self-cleaning cycle does not work.

Soil not completely removed after running self-cleaning cycle.

 

Convection fan does not rotate.

 

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

Incorrect setting. Follow broiling instructions in Setting Oven Controls.

Make sure oven door is opened to broil stop position.

Meat too close to the broil element. Reposition the broil rack to provide proper clearance between the meat & the element. Preheat the broil element for searing.

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

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

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

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.

Electronic control has detected a fault or error condition. Press CANCEL to clear the display and stop beeping. Try the selected feature again. If the E or F error code repeats, remove power from appliance, wait 5 minutes and then return power to appliance. Try the selected feature again. If the fault continues, record the fault or error code and call for service.

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.

Excessive spillovers on oven bottom. Remove before starting self-clean.

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 door is open. Convection fan will turn off if oven door is opened when Convection is active. Close oven door.

 

Problem

Scratches or abrasions on cooktop surface.

Metal marks on the cooktop.

Brown streaks or specks on cooktop surface.

Areas of discoloration with metallic sheen on cooktop surface.

Solution

Coarse particles such as salt or sand between cooktop and utensils can cause scratches. Be sure cooktop surface and bottoms of utensils are clean before usage. Small scratches do not affect cooking and will become less visible with time.

Cleaning materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been used. See “Cooktop cleaning and maintenance” in the Care and Cleaning section of this Use & Care Guide.

Cookware with rough bottom has been used. Use smooth, flat-bottomed cookware.

Sliding or scraping of metal utensils on cooktop surface. Do not slide metal utensils on cooktop surface. Use a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning creme to remove the marks. See “Cooktop Cleaning and Maintenance” in the Care and Cleaning section.

Boilovers are cooked onto surface. Use razor blade scraper to remove soil. See “Cooktop cleaning and maintenance” in the Care & Cleaning section.

Mineral deposits from water and food. Remove using a ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning creme. Use cookware with clean, dry bottoms.
