Important Instructions For Ceramic Glass

Cooktops

•    Do not cook on a broken cooktop. If the cooktop is broken, cleaning solutions and spills may penetrate the cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.

•    Exercise caution when cleaning the cooktop. If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to avoid steam burns. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.

Important Instructions for Using your Cooktop

•    Know which knob or keypad controls each surface cooking zone. Place pan with food on the cooking zone before turning it on. 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 or approved for induction cooking. Pans should have flat bottoms that match the induction cooking zone size. Using the proper utensil on the cooking zone will improve efficiency.

•    To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spills due to unintentional contact with the cookware, turn utensil handles inward and do not extend them over other cooking zones.

•    Never leave surface cooking zones unattended. Boil-overs may cause smoking and greasy spills may ignite. A pan that has boiled dry could be damaged and may damage the cooktop.

•    When you are flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn on the fan.

Important Instructions for Using Your Oven

•    Never use your appliance for warming or heating the room.

•    Use care when opening oven door, lower oven door, or warmer drawer (some models). Stand to the side of the oven 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 clear. Touching surfaces in this area when the oven is on may cause severe burns. Do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or near the oven vent. These items can melt or ignite.

•    Placement of oven racks – Always place oven racks in their desired locations while oven is cool. If the rack must be moved while the oven is hot, do not let potholder contact a hot heating element in the oven. 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 cookware and utensils before moving the rack.

•    Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. Broiler pans and inserts allow dripping fat to drain 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 surface unit drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as suggested in the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in a risk of electric shock or fire.

•    Do not cook food on the oven bottom. Always cook in proper cookware and always use the oven racks.

Save these instructions for future reference.


•    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.

•    Always follow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for use of kitchen cleaners and aerosols. 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

•    Use the self clean cycle to clean only the parts listed in this manual. Before using self clean, remove the broiler pan, any food, utensils, and cookware from the oven. Remove oven racks unless otherwise instructed.

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

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

•    Some birds are extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the self clean cycle of any range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.

Induction Cooking Zones

Your cooktop is equipped with four induction cooking zones of different sizes and a radiant heat warmer zone (Figure 1).


Induction Cookware


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.


Benefits of Induction Surface Cooking

Fast and efficient – Induction cooking zones heat faster and use less energy. Induction power levels are quick to boil and they are efficient when simmering.

A cooler cooktop – A unique feature of the induction cooking zones is, whether it is 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 – 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.

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

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 (Figure 2). If a magnet sticks to the bottom of the cookware, the material type is correct.

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.

3 IMPORTANT

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

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


Tips For 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 (Figure 3).

•    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 a 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.

See “Care and Cleaning” beginning on page 37 for more detailed information about the cooktop.

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 (Figure 5). If the cookware does not meet the correct conditions, the cooking zones may not heat.

 

Correct

 

Incorrect

 

 

 

 

 

 

A flashing error message as illustrated in Figure 5 can be generated by those conditions. Use Figure 6 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.

 

 

 

 

A CAUTION

Canning can generate large amounts of steam. Use extreme caution to prevent burns. Raise the lid to vent steam away from you. Safe canning requires that harmful micro-organisms are destroyed and jars seal completely. When canning in a water bath canner, continuously maintain a gentle but steady boil for the required time.

Minimum and Maximum 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.The longer lines guide the maximum pan size. The cookware bottom must meet the minimum and maximum area requirements for the heating process to begin. See Figure 7 below for the pan size requirements for each cooking zone location.

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 selected cooking zone.

Do 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.

The type and size of cookware, cooking duration, number of cooking zones in use and their power level settings are all factors that affect the amount of heat that will spread beyond the cooking zones. 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 the following points when home canning with your appliance.

Check with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) website. Be sure to read all the available information as well as follow the recommendations for home canning procedures.

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

•    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 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.

•    It is best to can small amounts and light loads.

•    Do not leave water bath or pressure canners on high heat for extended amounts of time.

•    Alternate surface units between each batch to allow the units and surrounding surfaces to cool down. Try to avoid canning on the same burner unit all day.


Cooktop Display Windows

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

Available Power Level Settings

The cooktop control (Figure 8) displays power levels ranging from Lo to Hi to Pb (Figure 9) in a display window located above each control dial. The settings range is between 1.5 and 9.5 (Figure 10), adjustable in 0.5 increments.

Use the suggested cooking zone power level settings table” on page 13 to determine the correct power level setting for the type of food you are preparing.

Power Boost (Pb) Power Level

When setting an induction cooking zone for Hi, the display will initially show Pb power level for up to 10 minutes (Figure 9). After 10 minutes the cooking zone will automatically return to the Hi setting. The Pb setting is only available immediately after activating a cooking zone by turning the knob to Hi.

Hot Element (HE) Surface Window Message

When using a 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 (Figure 11) message displays until the cooktop has cooled.

ESEC Error Indicator Message (Er)

An error message will display flashing Er (Figure 12) at power up or after a power failure for any surface control knob not in the OFF position. If a power failure should occur, set all surface control knobs to OFF (Figure 8). This will reset the surface controls.

Also, reset the clock (page 20). Once the surface controls have been set to off 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 service provider for assistance.

Figure 11: Hot element display

Figure 12: ESEC error indication Lockout Window Message

The (– –) message appears whenever Lockout, self clean, or Sabbath is active (Figure 13). See “Setting Oven Lockout Feature” on page 22 for more details.

Figure 13: ESEC error Indication

3 IMPORTANT

Induction cooking zones will not operate when the oven is set for Sabbath mode. For more details on the Sabbath feature, see “Setting the Sabbath Feature” on page 32.


•    The suggested power level settings 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.

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 the table below 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.

Table 1:    Suggested power level settings

^ NOTE

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.

To operate induction cooking zones:

3 IMPORTANT

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

1.    Place induction cookware on the desired cooking zone.

2.    To activate a 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 increase or decrease the power level in 0.5 increments from 1.5 to 9.5. Lo is the lowest power level available.

4.    Once cooking is complete, turn the control knob off and remove 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 power boost level. Very loud noises are not part of normal induction cooking.


3 IMPORTANT

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

The purpose of the warmer zone is to keep foods (vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and oven-safe dinner plates) at serving temperature (Figure 14).

A CAUTION

•    Unlike radiant surface elements, 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.

3 IMPORTANT

   The hot element (HE) 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.


Warmer Zone Temperature Selection

If a particular food is not listed (Table 2), start with the medium heat level and adjust as needed (Figure 15). Most foods can be kept at serving temperatures by using the medium heat level.

A WARNING

Completely remove all oven racks and any cooking accessories from the oven before performing a self clean function in order to avoid damage to the racks. If oven racks are not removed before a self clean, they will lose their special coating and will no longer slide in and out of the oven cavity effortlessly.

A CAUTION

Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using the oven. When cooking, the oven interior and exterior, oven racks and cooktop will become very hot which can cause burns.Remove all racks and accessories prior to starting a self clean cycle.


Oven Vent Location

The oven vent is located under the control panel. 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.

Steam or moisture may appear near the oven vent. This is normal.

Arranging, Removing, and Replacing Racks

•    To arrange – Always arrange the oven racks when the oven is cool (prior to operating the oven).

•    To remove – Pull the oven rack straight forward until it reaches the stop position. Lift up front of oven rack slightly and slide out.

•    To replace – Place the oven rack on the rack guides on both sides of oven walls. Tilt the front of oven rack upward slightly and slide the oven rack back into place. Be sure oven racks are level before using.


   Flat oven racks (or the flat handle oven rack) may be used for most cooking needs and may be placed in most oven rack positions.

   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 a half rack position lower than the flat rack and may be used in most oven rack positions.

   The bottom oven rack (some models) allows you to maximize oven cooking space by using the lowest rack position for baking or roasting large cuts of meat.

   The “Effortless™ Oven Rack System” (some models) is described on page 17.

 

3 IMPORTANT

The Effortless™ Oven Rack system can be used in oven rack positions 1,2, or 3 (Figure 19, below). Placing any oven rack in any other position will prevent the oven door from fully closing and may damage the oven door, oven cavity, or the door connector brackets.

Do not attempt to use the Effortless™ Oven rack in rack positions 4 or 5.

 

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 (Figure 18 below).

 

 

 

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 two supplied chrome connector arms.

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

3.    Open the oven door.

4.    Place the oven rack in positions 2, 3, or 4 only (Figure 19 to verify positions). Be sure the rack connector brackets are at the rear of the range and pointing towards oven bottom (Figure 20).


 

5. 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 (Figure 21) and the other end in the hole in the rack connector bracket (Figure 22). The oven rack may need to be adjusted in or out in the rack position to match the length of the connector arm.

Figure 21: Connector arm/door connection

 

6.    While holding the connector arm in place, twist the connector arm so the ends of the connector arm point upwards (Figure 23). The connector arm should now be locked into position (Figure 24).

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

8.    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.

5.    When preheat is completed, place food in oven.

For best bake results:

   For batter and dough based baked goods such as cakes, pastries, and breads, use the convection function for best results.

   Fully preheat the oven before baking items like cookies, cakes, biscuits, and breads.

•    When using any single rack, position the rack so that the food is in the center of the oven.

•    For best results when baking cakes using two oven racks, place racks in positions 2 and 4 (Figure 25).

•    When baking using two oven racks, position cookware as shown in Figure 26.

•    Allow at least 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 cm) space between cookware for proper air circulation. Set one position lower if using offset racks.

•    Dark or dull bakeware absorbs more heat than shiny bakeware. It may be necessary to reduce oven temperature and cook time to prevent overbrowning of some foods. Dark bakeware is recommended for pies. Shiny bakeware is recommended for cakes, cookies, and muffins.

•    Do not open the oven door often. Doing so will reduce the temperature in the oven and may increase cook time.

To change the bake temperature (example: changing from 375°F to 425°F):


1.    Press bake. The display will show 375°.

2.    Press 4 2 5.

3.    Press start. The display will show the new setting.


Convection Cooking

Convection baking uses the three elements and a fan to circulate the heat evenly and continuously within the oven (Figure 27). The improved heat distribution allows for even cooking with excellent results. Multiple rack baking may slightly increase cook time for some foods, but the overall result is time saved. Some food may cook faster and more evenly with convection bake.

Benefits of convection cooking:

   Multiple rack baking.

   Some foods cook faster, saving time and energy.

   No special pans or bakeware needed.

This mode of cooking enables you to obtain the best results when baking with multiple pans and racks. The oven can be programmed for convection baking at any temperature between 170°F to 550°F (77°C to 288°C) with a default temperature of 350°F (177°C).

To set the oven for convection bake and temperature to 375°F (190°C):

2.    Press convect. Convect and bake will flash and the default temperature of 350° will appear in the display.

3.    Press 3 7 5. convect and bake will keep flashing, and 375° will appear in the display.

4.    Press start. The actual oven temperature and the fan icon will be displayed. A beep will sound once the oven temperature reaches 375°F. The display will show 375°, CONVECT, BAKE, and the fan icon.

5.    Place food in the oven.

Convection baking tips:

   Fully preheat the oven before baking items like cookies, cakes, biscuits, and breads. Use convection baking for best results.

   When using any single rack, position the rack so that the food is in the center of the oven. When baking using two oven racks, position cookware as shown in Figure 29. Allow at least 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 cm) space between cookware for proper air circulation.

   For best results when baking cakes using two oven racks, place racks in positions 2 and 4 (Figure 28).

   Bake cookies and biscuits on pans with no (or very low) sides to allow heated air to circulate around the food.

   Dark or dull bakeware absorbs more heat than shiny bakeware. You may reduce oven temperature and cook time to prevent overbrowning of some foods. Dark bakeware is recommended for pies. Shiny bakeware is recommended for cakes, cookies, and muffins.

   Do not open the oven door often. Doing so will reduce oven temperature and may increase cooking time.

^ NOTE

The convection fan will start as soon as the oven is set for convection bake. The display will show an icon of rotating fan within a square, indicating the convection fan is operating. The bake, broil, and convection elements will also cycle for a better heat distribution.

Press off to stop the feature at any time.

A WARNING

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


Setting Convection Convert

Convection convert automatically converts a standard baking recipe for convection baking. When set properly, this feature is designed to display the actual converted (reduced) temperature in the display. Convection convert may only be used with a convection bake cooking mode. It can be used with a delay start and bake time. If convection conversion is used with the bake time and delay start features, Check food (CF) will display when 75% of the bake time has completed. At this time the oven control will sound three long beeps at regular intervals until baking time is finished. The control will display End and continue to beep at regular intervals until off is pressed.

To set the oven for convection bake with a standard baking recipe temperature of 400°F (204°C):

2.    Press convect. Convect and bake will flash and 350° will appear in the display.

3.    Press 4 0 0. Convect and bake will keep flashing and 400° will appear in the display.

4.    Press start.

5.    Set bake time or delay start if needed. See “Setting Delay Start” on page 26 and “Setting Bake Time” on page 25.

6.    Press convect convert, and the oven will start heating. The temperature displayed will be 25°F (14°C) lower than what it was. The actual oven temperature and the fan icon will be displayed. A beep will sound once the oven temperature reaches 375°F, and the display will show 375°, CONVECT, BAKE, and the fan icon.

7.    Place food in the oven.

Setting Bake Time

Use bake time when setting the oven to cook for a specific length of time and shut off automatically when the time is complete.

When cooking time ends, the oven will shut off and will beep. This feature can be used with bake, convection bake, convection roast, and slow cook modes.

*Use an offset rack if you choose to use an oven rack in the top position. Watch food closely and check for desired doneness.

** The U.S. Department of Agriculture states, “Rare fresh beef is popular, but you should know that cooking it to only 140°F (60°C) means some food poisoning organisms may survive.” (Source: Safe Food Book, Your Kitchen Guide, USDA Rev. June 1985.) The lowest temperature recommended by the USDA is 145°F (63°C) for medium rare fresh beef. For well done 170°F (77°C).


Setting Convection Broil

Use this mode for thicker cuts of meat, fish, and poultry. The convection broiling gently browns the exterior and seals in the juices. Convection broiling uses the broil element and a fan to circulate the oven’s heat evenly and continuously within the oven. The oven can be programmed for convection broiling at any temperature between 400°F to 550°F (204°C to 288°C) with a default temperature of 550°F (288°C). See Table 4.

1. Arrange oven racks first. Press convect; 350° will be displayed, and convect and bake will flash.

2.    Press convect two more times; 550° will be displayed and convect and broil will flash.

3.    Press 5 0 0.

4.    Press start. CONVECT, BROIL, 500°, and the fan icon will be displayed.

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

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

•    Always use a broiler pan and insert when broiling. It keeps grease away from the high heat of the broil element.

•    Do not use a broil pan without the insert. Do not cover an insert with foil. The exposed grease could catch fire.

•    If using a searing grill (available by mail order), preheat the grill for 5 to 10 minutes before placing your meat. Broil one side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and serve.

•    Convection broiling is generally faster than conventional broiling. Check for doneness at the minimum recommended time.

Setting Convection Roast

This mode is best for cooking tender cuts of beef, lamb, pork, and poultry. Use this mode when cooking speed is desired. Convection roasting gently browns the exterior and seals in the juices. Convection roasting uses the bake element, convection element, broil element, and fan to circulate the heat evenly and continuously within the oven. The oven can be programmed for convection roasting at any temperature between 170°F to 550°F (77°C to 288°C) with a default temperature of 350°F (177°C).

To set a convection roast temperature of 375°F:

A WARNING

Should an oven fire occur, close oven door and turn off the oven. If the fire continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use a fire extinguisher. Do not put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive, and water can cause a grease fire to spread and cause personal injury. 2 1


A CAUTION

•    Do not use kitchen utensils to pull on the probe cable or handles. Always insert and remove the probe using the provided handles, as shown in Figure 31.

•    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.

•    Before starting self clean, verify 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.


Cooking with Meat Probe

Use the probe feature for best results when cooking foods such as roasts, hams or poultry.    probe

For meats like poultry and roasts, using a probe to check internal temperature is the safest method to ensure properly cooked food.

When set correctly, the probe feature will signal an alert when the internal food temperature reaches the desired set target temperature.

When active, the probe displays the internal food temperature which is visible in the display during the cooking process. This eliminates any guesswork or the need to open the oven door to check the thermometer.

Figure 31: Using the probe

To properly place the probe:

Insert the probe so that the probe tip rests inside the center of the thickest part of meat or food (Figure 32). 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 meat loaf or casseroles, insert the probe into center of food. When cooking fish, insert meat probe just above the gill.

   For whole poultry or turkey, fully insert the probe sensor into the thickest part of the breast (Figure 33).

A WARNING

•    Do not store the probe inside the oven. Use only the original probe provided.

•    Before starting self clean, double check that the probe is removed from the oven interior.


• 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.


To connect the probe to the oven:

1.    Insert the probe into the food.

2.    Place prepared food on the desired oven rack position and slide into the oven.

3.    Plug the connector end of the probe all the way into the probe receptacle while the oven is still cool. The receptacle is located on the top left front of the oven cavity (Figure 34).

4.    When the probe is set, a tone sounds, the probe icon illuminates, and the actual probe temperature appears in the display (Figure 35).

5.    Close the oven door.

Setting the Sabbath Feature

(For use on the Jewish Sabbath and Holidays)

The bake time and start keys are used to set the Sabbath feature.

For further assistance, guidelines for proper usage, and a complete list of models with the Sabbath feature, please visit the web at https:\\www.star-k.org.

Bake time and delay start pressed together set the Sabbath feature.The Sabbath feature may only be used with the bake function. Once the oven is properly set using bake with the Sabbath feature active, the oven will remain on until cancelled. The Sabbath feature overrides the factory preset 12 hour energy saving feature.

If the oven light is needed during the Sabbath, press 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, turn the oven light off before activating the Sabbath feature.

3 IMPORTANT

It is advised to not activate any cooking function other than bake while the Sabbath feature is active. The oven lights, start time and end time may only be set before entering the Sabbath mode.

6.    Press and hold both bake time and delay start for at least 3 seconds. SAb will appear in the display. Once SAb appears in the display, the oven control will no longer beep or display any further changes, and the oven is properly set for the Sabbath feature.

7.    The oven may be turned off at any time by first pressing off (this will turn the oven off only).

8.    To turn off the Sabbath feature, press and hold both the bake time and delay start keys for at least 3 seconds. SAb will disappear from the display.

A CAUTION

Food Poisoning Hazard. Do not let food sit for more than 1 hour before or after cooking. Doing so may result in food borne illness. Foods that can easily spoil such as milk, eggs, fish, meat, or poultry should be chilled in the refrigerator first. Even when chilled, they should not stand in the oven for more than 1 hour before cooking begins and should be removed promptly when finished cooking.

^ NOTE

   The cooktop is locked during the Sabbath mode.

   You may change the oven temperature once baking starts by pressing bake and the number keys for the new temperature. For example, to change from 350°F to 425°F, press 4 2 5. Then, press start twice.

   Only the numeric keypad, bake, start, and off controls will function after setting the Sabbath feature. All other features will not function once the Sabbath feature is properly activated. The display will not show temperature changes or sound any audible tones when the oven is set with the Sabbath feature.

To program the oven to begin baking immediately and activate the Sabbath feature (example: baking at 350°F):

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

2.    Place the food in the oven.

3.    Press bake. The display shows 3 5 0°.

4.    Press start. The actual oven temperature appears in the display.

3 IMPORTANT

If setting the oven control for a bake or delayed bake time, do so here. If not, skip this step and continue to Step 4. For “Setting Delay Start” , see page 26. For “Setting Bake Time” , see page 25. Remember the oven will turn off after using bake time or delay start and may only be used once during the Sabbath/Jewish holidays. The maximum bake time is 5 hours and 59 minutes.


If power fails while using the Sabbath feature:

Should you experience a power failure or interruption, the oven will shut off. When power is returned, SF (Sabbath Failure) will be displayed, and the oven will not turn back on automatically. If your food was nearly fully cooked, you may allow the trapped heat in the oven to finish the cooking process. Otherwise, you should remove the food when the power failure occurs because you may only start the oven once during the Sabbath/Jewish holidays.

To turn off the Sabbath feature:

Press and hold both the bake time and delay start keys for at least 3 seconds. SAb will disappear from the display and the oven and cooktop may again be used with all normal functions.


5. The oven will turn on and begin heating.


Adjusting Oven Temperature

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

To adjust the oven temperature higher:

1.    Press and hold bake for 6 seconds. UPO 0 will appear in the display.

2.    To increase the temperature, use the number keys to enter the desired change. For example, for 30°F, press 3 0. The temperature may be increased as much as 35°F (19°C).

3.    Press start to accept the temperature change and the display will return to the time of day. Press off to reject the change if necessary.

To adjust the oven temperature lower:

1.    Press bake for 6 seconds. UPO 0 will appear in the display.

2.    To decrease the temperature, use the number keys to enter the desired change (Example -30°F) 3 0. Then, press self clean. The temperature may be decreased as much as 35°F (19°C).

Restoring Factory Default Setting

   12 or 24 hour display mode

   Continuous bake or 12 hour energy savings mode

   Silent or audible control

   Oven temperature display (F or C)

   Oven temperature adjustments (offsets)

   Stored recipes

   Cancel or continue cooking with meat probe option

^ NOTE

If you choose to restore factory default settings, all of the above user preferences will be restored to their original settings (factory default). The oven temperature adjustment will reset and any stored recipes will be cleared.

To restore oven control to factory default settings:

1.    When the oven is in idle and no cooking function is in operation, press and hold the 7 key until the acceptance tone sounds (about 6 seconds).

2.    Press start. The control is now reset to default settings.


3. Press start to accept the temperature change and the display will return to the time of day. Press off to reject the change if necessary.

 

Steam Clean

The steam clean feature offers a chemical free and timesaving method to assist in the routine cleaning of your oven. Steam clean may be used before manually cleaning the oven to help loosen soils on the oven bottom.

To set a steam clean cycle:

1.    Oven should be at room temperature. If the oven temperature is above the room temperature, steam clean will not start. Be sure the oven is cool. Remove all racks and oven accessories.

2.    Scrape or wipe loose debris from the oven bottom.

3.    Pour 8 oz (227 ml) distilled or filtered water onto the oven bottom (Figure 36). Close the oven door.

5.    Press start.

6.    Steam clean is a 20 minute cycle. The display will show the time remaining.

7.    An alert will sound at the end of the cycle, and the End message will show in the display. Press off to return to the clock.

8.    When the steam clean cycle is complete, stand to the side of the oven out of the way of escaping vapor when opening the oven door. The cycle includes a cool-down period, so you may immediately use a soft cloth or sponge to remove any remaining water.

9.    Wipe oven cavity and bottom. Do not clean oven door gasket (Figure 38).


4. Press steam clean. StCn will show in the display (Figure 37).

Figure 37: Steam clean selected

For best results, clean oven immediately after the cycle is complete. Steam clean works best for soils on the oven bottom. Removal of especially stubborn or baked-on soils may require a manual cleaning. See “Cleaning Various Parts of Your Oven” on page 37.

Some condensation or water vapor may appear close to the oven vent. This is normal. The oven gasket may become damp; do not wipe dry. Open door about 10° and allow to air dry.

Local water sources often contain minerals (hard water) and will leave deposits on the oven cavity. If this occurs, wipe cavity with vinegar or lemon juice. Use distilled or filtered water.

If the door is opened during the steam clean cycle, a beep will sound and d-0 will show in the display. Close the oven door. Keep oven door closed during steam clean cycle.

Steam clean cannot be programmed with a delay start. If steam clean results are not satisfactory, run a self clean. See “Self Cleaning Operation”on page 35.


Self Cleaning Operation

A self cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures that are well above normal cooking temperatures. These temperatures eliminate soils completely or reduce them to a fine powdered ash that can be wiped away with a damp cloth.

3 IMPORTANT

Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:

   Completely remove all oven racks and any cooking accessories from the oven to avoid damage to the racks. If oven racks are not removed before a self clean, they will lose their special coating and will no longer slide in and out of the oven cavity effortlessly.

   Remove all items from the oven and cooktop including cookware, utensils, and any aluminum foil. Aluminum foil will not withstand the high self clean temperatures.

   Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom or any other parts of the range with aluminum foil. Doing so will alter heat distribution, produce poor baking results and may cause permanent damage to the oven interior. During self clean temperatures the oven will be hot enough to melt foil.

   Do not spray oven cleaners or protective coatings in or around any part of the oven interior.

   Clean any soil from the oven frame, door liner outside the oven door gasket, and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom with soap and water. These areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on.

   Remove any excessive spills from the oven cavity before starting the self cleaning cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spills can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures.

   Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices, or pie filling, etc.) to remain on surfaces. They may leave a dull spot even after cleaning.

   Do not clean the oven door gasket. Take care not to rub, damage, or remove the gasket or use any cleaning substances on the oven door gasket (Figure 38). Doing so could cause damage and reduce the efficiency of the oven’s performance.

A CAUTION

•    Do not leave small children unattended near the appliance. During self clean, the range may become very hot to the touch.

•    The oven bake and broil elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned off. The elements may still be hot and burns may occur if these elements are touched before they have cooled.

•    Use caution when opening the door after the self cleaning cycle is completed. The oven may still be very hot. Stand to the side of the oven door when opening the door to allow hot air or steam to escape.

•    Do not force the oven door open when self clean is active. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution when opening the door after self clean cycle is complete; the oven may still be very hot.

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

What to Expect During Self Clean

When the oven is set to run a self clean cycle, the motor door lock will begin locking the oven door. Do not open the oven door while the lock motor is running or when any locking indicators or displays are showing. The oven door is completely locked in about 15 seconds.

While in self clean mode, the oven heats to temperatures much higher than those used in normal cooking. Sounds of metal expansion and contraction are normal.

Odors are normal as the food soil is being removed. Smoke may appear through the oven vent.

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


Setting Self Clean Cycle Duration

The self clean key controls the self cleaning feature. If you plan to use the oven directly after a self clean cycle, allow time for the oven to cool and the oven door to unlock. This normally takes about one hour. A 3 hour self clean cycle will actually take about 4 hours to complete.

The automatic timer will turn the oven on and off at the time you select in advance.

It is recommended to use a 2 hour self clean cycle for light soils, a 3 hour cycle for average soils, and a 4 hour cycle for heavy soils.

To set the controls for a 3 hour self cleaning cycle to start immediately and shut off automatically:

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

2.    Press self clean. CLn and 3:00 HR will show in the display. The control will automatically clean for a 3 hour period (default self cleaning cycle time). If a 2 or 4 hour clean time is desired, press self clean multiple times to toggle between 2, 3, or 4 hours.

3.    Press start. door Loc will appear, a beep will sound, and the word DOOR and the Q icon will flash; CLn will remain on in the display.

4.    As soon as the control is set, the motor driven oven door lock will begin to close automatically. Once the door is locked, the DOOR indicator light and Q will stop flashing and remain on, and the oven icon will appear in the display. Allow about 15 seconds for the oven door to lock completely.

When the self clean cycle is completed:

1.    The oven will beep 3 times and HOT will appear in the display. The time of day, the word DOOR, and the Q icon will remain in the display.

2.    Once the oven has cooled for approximately 1 hour, door OPn will appear, and the word DOOR and the Q icon will flash until the door unlocks. The door can be opened, and the clock display will show the time of day.

To stop or Interrupt a self cleaning cycle:

1.    Press off.

2.    The oven door can only be opened after the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR. door OPn will appear, and the word DOOR and the Q icon will flash until the door is unlocked. The oven door can then be opened, and the clock display will revert back to the time of day.

Delay Start Self Clean

To set the control for delayed self clean (example: 3

hour self clean cycle to start at 4:30):

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

2.    Press self clean. CLn and 3:00 HR will show in the display. The control will automatically clean for a 3 hour period. If a 2 or 4 hour clean time is desired, press self clean multiple times to toggle between 2, 3, or 4 hours.

3.    Press start. door Loc will appear, a beep will sound, and the word DOOR and the Q lock icon will flash. The letters CLn will remain on in the display.

4.    As soon as the control is set, the motor driven oven door lock will begin to close automatically. Once the door has been locked, the word DOOR and the Q lock icon indicator light will quit flashing and remain on.

5.    Press delay start. Enter the desired start time using the number keys 4 3 0.

6.    Press start. DELAY, DOOR, and the icons will remain on.

7.    The control will start the self cleaning at the set start time for the period of time previously selected. At that time, the icon DELAY will go out; CLn and oven icon will appear in the display.

When the self clean cycle is completed:

1.    The oven will beep 3 times and HOT will appear in the display. The time of day, the word DOOR, and the lock icon will remain in the display.

2.    When the oven cools after approximately 1 hour, door OPn will appear in the display and the word DOOR and the Q icon will flash until the door is unlocked. The oven door can then be opened, and the clock display will return to the time of day.

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 steam and air to escape.

Do not force the oven door open when self clean is active. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution when opening the door after self clean cycle is complete; the oven may still be very hot.


Cleaning Various Parts of Your Oven

Before cleaning any part of the oven, be sure all controls are turned off and the range is cool. Remove spills and any heavy soiling as soon as possible.

Surface Type

Recommendation

Painted and plastic control knobs Painted body parts

Painted decorative trims

Aluminum, Plastic, and Vinyl trim

For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils and built-up grease, apply liquid detergent directly onto soil and let soak for 30-60 minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. Do not use abrasive cleaners on these surfaces; they can scratch.

Control panel

Control keypad membrane

Control panel trim

Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls off, activate control lock (some models) and if needed remove knobs from panel (some models). Do not use abrasive cleaners on controls or trim; they can scratch.

Clean using hot, soapy water and a cloth or sponge. Be sure to squeeze excess water before wiping control panel; especially when wiping around the controls area. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the appliance. When rinsing, use clean water and a cloth or sponge and be sure to squeeze excess water before wiping the control panel.

Stainless Steel (some models)

Clean stainless with warm soapy water using a clean sponge or cloth. Rinse with clean water and dry with soft clean cloth. Do not use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners especially made for cleaning stainless steel. Rinse cleaners from the surface as bluish stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
Smudge Proof™ Stainless Steel (some models) Your oven finish may be Smudge Proof™ Stainless Steel (some models). Clean the stainless with warm soapy water using a clean sponge or cloth, or a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft clean cloth. Do not use store bought cleaners like stainless steel cleaners or any other types of cleaners containing any abrasive, chlorides, chlorine, or ammonia.

Porcelain enamel parts

Porcelain enamel broiler pan and insert (available by mail order)

Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia. Cover difficult spots with an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and damp cloth. Scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or porcelain may become damaged during future heating.
Oven interior Remove excessive spills from oven cavity bottom before starting self clean. Clean any soils from oven frame and door liner outside the oven door gasket.
Oven racks Oven racks must be removed from oven cavity. Clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following manufacturer’s instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry.
Oven door Use soap and water to thoroughly clean the top, sides and front of the oven door. Rinse well. You may use a glass cleaner on the outside glass of the oven door. Do not immerse the door in water. Do not spray or allow water or glass cleaner to enter the door vents. Do not use oven cleaners, cleaning powders or any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the outside of the oven door.

Do not clean the oven door gasket. On self cleaning models the oven door gasket is made of a woven material which is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or remove this gasket.

Ceramic Cooktop Refer to “Cooktop Cleaning” and “Cooktop Maintenance” on page 38.

37

Cooktop Maintenance
A CAUTION

Before manually cleaning any part of the appliance, be sure all controls are turned off and the range is cool.

3 IMPORTANT

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


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 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 (Figure 39).

   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.

Apply a few drops of glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a non-abrasive plastic type 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 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 (Figure 40). 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.

3 IMPORTANT

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



Aluminum Foil and Oven Liners

Protective liners—Do not use oven bottom liners or use aluminum foil to cover the oven racks. Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven bottom, except as suggested in the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in a risk of electrical shock, or fire. Using a foil liner in the oven restricts the heat and air flow needed to obtain the best possible cooking results.

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 permanent damage to the oven interior and porcelain finish.

Broiler Pan Cleaning Tips

To make cleaning easier, line the bottom of the broiler pan with aluminum foil. Do not cover the insert with foil. To prevent grease from baking on, remove the broiler pan from the oven as soon as cooking is completed. Use hot pads because the broiler pan is extremely hot. Pour off grease. Soak the pan in hot, soapy water. Clean the broiler pan as soon as possible after each use. If necessary, use soap-filled steel wool pads. Heavy scouring may scratch the insert.

The interior oven lights are located at the rear of the oven cavity and are protected by glass shields. The shields must be in place whenever the oven is in use (See Figure 42).

Replacing the oven interior light bulb:

1.    Disconnect electrical power at the main source or unplug the appliance.

2.    Remove any/all oven racks that hinder access to the oven lights.

3.    Remove interior oven light shield by turning a quarter turn.

4.    Pull the bulb straight out.

5.    Replace defective bulb with a new T-4 type Halogen 25 watt appliance bulb.

^ NOTE

Do not touch the new bulb with your fingertips when replacing. This will shorten the life of the bulb. Use a paper towel or cotton glove while handling the new bulb.

6.    Reinstall the oven light shield.

7.    Reconnect power at the main source (or plug the appliance back in).

8.    Be sure to reset the time of day on the clock.

Removing and Replacing the Oven Door

To remove oven door:

1.    Open oven door completely, horizontal with floor (Figure 43).

2.    Pull the door hinge locks on both left and right door hinges down from the oven frame completely towards the oven door (Figure 44). A tool such as a small flat-blade screwdriver may be required.

3.    Firmly grasp both sides of oven door along the door sides. Do not use the oven door handle (Figure 45).

4.    Close the door to within 10° of closing (Figure 45).

5.    Lift the oven door hinge arms over the roller pins located on each side of the oven frame (Figure 45).

1. Firmly grasp both sides of oven door along the door sides. Do not use the oven door handle (Figure 45).

2.    Holding the oven door at the same angle as the removal position, seat the hook of the hinge arm over the roller pins located on each side of the oven door frame (Figure 45 and Figure 46). The hook of the hinge arms must be fully seated onto the roller pins.

3.    Fully open the oven door, horizontal with floor (Figure 43).

4.    Push the door hinge locks up towards and into the oven frame on both left and right oven door hinges to the locked position (Figure 44).

5. Close the oven door.

3 IMPORTANT

Special door care instructions – Most oven doors contain glass that can break. Do not close the oven door until all oven racks are fully in place. Do not hit the glass with pots, pans, or any other object. Scratching, hitting, jarring, or stressing the glass may weaken its structure causing an increased risk of breakage at a later time.

Solutions to Common Problems:

Before calling for service, review the list below to save time and expense. Problems and possible solutions are provided

Problem

Solution
Oven control panel beeps and displays F or E error codes. Oven control has detected a fault or error condition. Press the off key to clear the error code. Press bake or broil function. If the F or E code error repeats, turn off power to the appliance, wait 5 minutes, and then reapply power. Set clock with correct time of day. Try bake or broil again. If fault recurs, press off and call for service.
Poor baking results.

Many factors effect baking results. Use proper oven rack position. Center food in the oven and space pans to allow air to circulate. Preheat oven to the set temperature before placing food in the oven. Try adjusting the recipe’s recommended temperature or baking time. See “Adjusting Oven Temperature” on page 33 if you feel the oven is too hot or cold.

In your oven is cooking poorly, perform the following check: Press broil: 550 should be displayed. Place your hand near the handle on the oven door. Between the door and the control panel you should feel a rush of air on your hand. If so, your unit is functioning properly and you have had a power failure in your home. If no air rush happens, call a service technician to replace your cooling fan.

Appliance is not level

Be sure floor is level, strong and 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 oven rack is level.

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

Cannot move appliance easily/ Inaccessible for service

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

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

Flames inside oven or smoking from oven vent. Excessive spills in oven. Grease or food spilled onto oven bottom or oven cavity. Wipe up excessive spills before starting oven. If flames or excessive smoke are present when using broil, see “Setting Broil” on page 27.
Self clean does not work. Oven control not set properly. See “Self Cleaning Operation” on page 35.
Oven light does not work. Be sure the oven light is secure in the socket. See “Replacing the Oven Light” on page 39.
Surface cookware seems too hot or not hot enough Incorrect induction cooktop power level setting. Adjust power level setting higher or lower as needed.
Areas of discoloration with a metallic sheen Mineral deposits from water and food. Remove using a ceramic glass cooktop cleaning creme. Use cookware with clean, dry bottoms.
Brown streaks or specks on the

cooktop.

Boil overs are cooked onto surface. Use razor blade scraper to remove soil. See “Cooktop Cleaning” on page 38.
Convection fan does not rotate. Oven door is open. Convection fan will turn off if oven door is opened when convection is active. Close oven door.
Fan noise occurring after the oven is turned off. Some models are equipped with a cooling fan that runs during the cooking process to cool internal electronic components. It is normal for this fan to continue to run for an extended period of time, even when the oven is off.
Metal marks on the cooktop. Sliding or scraping 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” on page 38.
Cooking zones do not glow when heating. The induction cooking zones do not glow even when they are hot. Induction cooking uses electromagnetic energy to induce heat directly to the cookware.
Induction cooking zone does not heat cookware or does not heat evenly

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 pansensing issues in the checklist provided. Use quality heavier gauge cookware.

Soil not completely removed after self clean.

Self clean was interrupted. Review instructions on “Self Cleaning Operation” on page 35.

Excessive spills on oven bottom. Clean before starting self clean.

Failure to clean 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 are not in the self cleaning area, but get hot enough to burn on residue. Clean these areas before starting the self cleaning cycle. 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.

If self clean is performing poorly, perform the following check: Press broil: 550 should be displayed. Place your hand near the handle on the oven door. Between the door and the control panel you should feel a rush of air on your hand. If so, your unit is functioning properly and you have had a power failure in your home. If no air rush happens, call a service technician to replace the cooling fan.

Oven portion of appliance does not operate Be sure the oven controls are set properly for the desired cooking feature. See “Running H/F 2” in this manual or read the instructions “Entire appliance does not operate” in this checklist.
Oven smokes excessively when broiling.

Incorrect setting. Follow the “Setting Broil” instructions on page 27. Be sure oven door is opened to broil stop position when broiling.

Meat too close to the broil element. Reposition broil rack to provide proper clearance between the meat and broil element. Remove excess fat from meat. Cut remaining fatty edges to prevent curling, but do not cut into lean.

Grease build up on oven surfaces. Regular cleaning is necessary when broiling frequently. Grease or food splatters will cause excessive smoking.

Scratches or abrasions on cooktop surface

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” on page 38.

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

Entire appliance does not operate. The time of day is not set. The oven clock must first be set in order to operate the oven. Be sure oven controls are set properly. Review instructions for the desired cooking function in this manual. Service wiring is not complete.
