IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
• Know which knob or key controls each surface heating area. Place cookware with food on the cooking area before turning it on. Turn the cooking area off before removing the cookware.
• Use proper pan size. This appliance is equipped with one or more surface units of different sizes. Select cookware with flat bottoms that match the surface unit heating element. The use of undersized cookware may expose a portion of the heating element to direct contact and may result in the ignition of clothing or other items. Using the proper cookware 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 utensil, the utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend over other cooking areas.
• Never leave surface elements 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.
• Improper cookware may break due to sudden changes in temperature. Check the cookware manufacturer’s recommendations for cooktop use.
• When you are flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn on the fan.
• Glazed cooking utensils—Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for cooktop service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for cooktop use.
• Do not use decorative surface burner covers.
If an element is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover will become hot and possibly melt. Burns will occur if the hot covers are touched. Damage may also be done to the cooktop.
• Do not use searing grill on the cooktop. The searing grill is not designed for use on the cooktop. Doing so may result in a fire.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
• Use care when opening oven door, lower oven door, or warmer drawer (some models). Stand to the side of the appliance when opening the door of a hot range. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or replace food in the oven.
• Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. 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 desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven in hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating element in oven. Use potholders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. 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 oven bottom or any other part of the appliance. Only use aluminum as recommended for baking if used as a cover placed on the food. Any other use of protective liners or aluminum foil may result in a risk of electric shock or fire or a short circuit.
• Do not cook food on the oven bottom. Always cook in proper cookware and always use the oven racks.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR OVEN
• 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. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning hoods.
• 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.
• Do not touch a hot oven light bulb with a damp cloth. Doing so could cause the bulb to break. Disconnect the appliance or shut off the power to the appliance before removing and replacing the bulb.
FOR GLASS COOKTOP ONLY
• Do Not Clean or Operate a Broken Cooktop. If cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
• Clean cooktop glass 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 harmful fumes if applied to a hot surface.
• Avoid scratching the cooktop glass with sharp objects.
SELF CLEANING OVENS
Clean only the parts listed in this manual. Before using self clean, remove the broiler pan, any food, utensils, and cookware 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 appliance.
Do not clean the oven door gasket. The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the gasket.
Some birds are extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the self clean cycle of any oven. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.
Remove oven racks. If left in the oven during a self cleaning cycle the oven racks color will change.
Avoid fire hazard or electrical shock. Failure to follow this warning may cause serious injury, fire, or death.
For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded. For maximum safety, the power cord must be plugged into an electrical outlet that is the correct voltage, is correctly polarized and properly grounded in accordance with local codes.
It is the personal responsibility of the consumer to have the appropriate outlet with the correct, properly grounded wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician. It is the responsibility and obligation of the consumer to contact a qualified installer to assure that the electrical installation is adequate and is in conformance with all local codes and ordinances.
See the installation instructions packaged with this appliance for complete installation and grounding instructions.
The size and type of cookware used will influence the radiant element power level setting needed for best cooking results. Be sure to follow the recommendations for using proper cookware as illustrated in Figure 1 and Figure 2.
Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the cookware (See Figure 1). Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface heating element (See Figure 2). For detailed information about the ceramic cooktop, refer to the“Cooktop Maintenance (cont’d)” on page 32.
The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly
heat is transferred from the surface element to the pan
bottom. The most popular materials available are:
• Aluminum – Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware resists staining and pitting). If aluminum pans slide across the ceramic cooktop, they may leave metal marks which will resemble scratches. Remove these marks immediately.
• Copper – Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily (See Aluminum).
• Stainless – Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
• Cast Iron – A slow heat conductor however will retain heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached. Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.
• Porcelain-enamel on metal – Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material. Porcelain-enamel coating must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktops.
• Glass – Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass.
About the Radiant Surface Elements
The element temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the temperature rises, the element will glow red. To maintain the selected setting the element will cycle on and off. The heating element retains enough heat to provide a uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle.
For efficient cooking, turn off the element several minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to complete the cooking process.
When a burner is turned on the ELEMENT ON indicator light will glow. The HOT SURFACE indicator light will turn on when the burner is hot enough to cause burns and will remain on until the surface has cooled to a safe temperature after the burner is turned off. The ELEMENT ON indicator light will glow when one or more elements are turned on. A quick glance at these indicator lights when cooking is finished is an easy check to be sure all surface elements are turned off.

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) Web site 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.
• Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no ridges that radiate from the bottom center when home canning. Heat is spread more evenly when the bottom surface is flat.
• Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed 1 inch beyond the surface element markings or burner.
• It is recommended to use smaller diameter canners on electric coil and ceramic glass cooktops and to center canners on the burner grates.
• Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more quickly.
• Use the highest heat seating when first bringing the water to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest possible setting to maintain that boil.
• Use tested recipes and follow instructions carefully. Check with your local Cooperative Agricultural Extension Service or a manufacturer of glass jars for the latest canning information.
• It is best to can small amounts and light loads.
• Do not leave water bath or pressure canners on high heat for an extended amount 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.
The size and type of utensil used, and the amount and type of food being cooked will influence the surface element power level setting needed for best cooking results.
Use Table 1 to determine the correct setting for the type of food you are preparing.
The cooktop has two or three single radiant surface
elements: the left rear position, the right rear position. The
left rear element may also be used with the bridge element.
To operate the single radiant surface elements:
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the radiant surface element.
2. Push in and turn the surface control knob in either direction to the desired setting (See Figure 3). Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking. Each surface element provides a constant amount of heat at each setting. A glowing red surface heating area extending beyond the bottom edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is too small for the surface heating area.
3. When cooking has completed, turn the surface control knob to OFF before removing the cookware.
The expandable burner can handle 9 inch or 12 inch cookware. This dual burner is especially useful for bringing large cookware to boil for canning or heating large amounts of water.
To operate the dual surface element:
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the dual surface element.
2. Push in and turn the control knob toward the inner element side for smaller cookware or to the dual element side for larger cookware (See Figure 4).
3. Turn the knob to adjust the setting if needed. Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking. Each surface element provides a constant amount of heat at each setting. A glowing red surface heating area extending beyond the bottom edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is too small for the surface heating area.
4. When cooking has completed, turn the surface control knob to OFF before removing the cookware.
The purpose of the warmer zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Use the feature to keep cooked foods hot 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 clean. Use only plates, utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use on the warmer zone.
Figure 5: Warmer zone control knob
To set the keep warmer zone control:
1. Turn the warmer zone control knob clockwise to the ON position. The warmer zone uses a pre-set temperature designed to keep foods at serving temperature.
2. When ready to serve, turn the warmer zone control knob to the off position. The warmer zone will remain hot until the hot surface indicator light turns off.
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.
On the left side of the cooktop there are two single burners with a bridge element between them. When turned on, the bridge element allows for a larger cooking area by cycling at the same temperature as the left rear element. For the bridge to be operational, the left rear burner must be on. When the left front burner is also on the entire left side of the cooktop can accommodate specialized cookware.
To operate the bridge element:
Turn on the left rear element to the desired level of heat.
Turn the bridge control to the on position.
The bridge element will heat at the same level as the left rear element. If the left rear control is turned off, the bridge will also turn off. Be sure to turn the bridge control to the off position when finished cooking.
The oven is vented as shown below. When the oven is on, warm air is released through the vent. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good baking results. Do not block oven vent. Never close off the openings with aluminium foil or any other material. Steam or moisture may appear near the oven vent. This is normal.
• 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 step down positions from the standard flat rack design. The offset design positions the base of the rack about A of a rack position lower than the flat rack and may be used in most oven rack positions.
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.
Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom or any other parts of the range with aluminum foil. Doing so will alter heat distribution and may cause permanent damage to the oven interior. During self clean the oven temperatures will be hot enough to melt foil.

3. When finished baking turn both oven selectors to the OFF position.
For best bake 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.
• The convection fan will be on during preheat and then turn off and on occasionally as needed.
• For best results when baking cakes using two oven racks, place racks in positions 3 with offset rack and 5 using flat rack (See Figure 12).
• When using two oven racks, position cookware as shown in Figure 13. Allow at least 2-4 inches (5-10 cm) of space between cookware for proper air circulation.
• 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.
Use the Bake function whenever a recipe calls for baking using normal temperatures. When the set bake temperature is reached the control will sound a chime to alert that the oven is fully preheated.
Bake may be set for any temperature between 170°F (77°C) and 550°F (288°C).
To set a bake for 350°F:

6. When finished baking, be sure to return both the temperature selector knob and the oven mode knob to the OFF positions.
Note: Do not open the oven door often. Doing so will
reduce the temperature in the oven and may increase the
cooking time necessary for best results.
Important: For batter and dough-based baked goods such as cakes, pastries, and breads, use the convection function for best results.
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. The convection function uses a fan to circulate the oven heat uniformly and continuously around the oven (Figure 14). This improved heat distribution allows for fast, even cooking and browning results. It also gives better baking results when using two oven racks at the same time.
Benefits of convection cooking:
• Multiple rack baking.
• Some foods may cook faster, saving time and energy.
Convection baking tips:
• Fully preheat the oven before baking items like cookies, cakes, biscuits, and breads.
• For single rack baking, position the rack so that food is in the center of the oven.
• If your recipe cooking temperature has already been converted for convection baking, there is no need to reduce your oven temperature. If not, see “Setting Convection Convert” on page 21 for further instructions on temperature conversion.
• For best results when baking cakes using two oven racks, place racks in positions 3 with offset rack and 5 using flat rack (See Figure 14). When baking using two oven racks, position cookware as shown in Figure 15. Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) of space between cookware for proper air circulation.
• 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 oven door too often. Doing so reduces oven temperature and may extend cooking time.
To set the oven for convection bake and temperature to 375°F:
1. Arrange interior oven racks.
2. Turn the oven mode selector to CONVECT BAKE.
3. Turn the oven temperature selector to 375°F.
The oven temperature light will blink for a few seconds before sounding a chime confirming the setting. The convection fan will turn on and the oven will begin heating. Once the oven reaches the set temperature the oven will sound a chime indicating the food items can be placed in the oven.
When finished baking, be sure to return both the temperature selector knob and the oven mode knob to the OFF positions.

Convection roast 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.
Convection roasting tips:
• Use a broiler pan and grid, as well as a roasting rack (available by mail order). The broiler pan will catch grease drippings, and the grid will help prevent spatters. The roasting rack will hold the meat. Make sure the roasting rack is securely seated on the grid in the broiler pan. Do not use the broiler pan without the grid or cover the grid with aluminum foil.
• Pull the rack out to the stop position before removing food. Position food (fat side up) on the roasting rack.
• Do not open the oven door often. Doing so will reduce the temperature in the oven and may increase the cooking time necessary for best results.
• It is not recommended to roast chicken on a roasting rack. Use a deep pan and place on rack position 1 (offset rack).
To set oven for convection roasting:
1. Place meat on roasting rack and place in oven.
2. Turn oven mode selector to CONV ROAST.
3. Turn oven temperature selector to desired roasting temperature.
Note: Preheating the oven for convection roasting is not necessary. At this time you may want to set TIMER as a reminder for checking food.

* 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)
** Stuffed turkey requires additional roasting time. Shield legs and breast with foil to prevent over browning and drying of the skin.
To prevent food from contacting the broil element and to prevent grease splattering, do not use the roasting rack when broiling.
Important: When roasting chicken use the offset rack in the lowest position for best results.
Using the Broil Feature To set broil:
1. Arrange oven racks while oven is cool.
2. Turn the mode selector knob to broil. The corresponding indicator light will flash.
3. Turn the temperature selector knob to broil. The indicator light will turn on and remain lit. For optimum browning results, preheat oven for 2 minutes before adding food.
4. Place the broiler pan on the rack. Be sure to center the broiler pan directly under the broiler element. Broil with door open to the stop position (Figure 20). Always pull the oven rack out to the stop position before turning or removing food.
5. Turn the temperature and the selector knobs to OFF when broiling is complete or to cancel broil.
Recommended Broiling Times
Depending on the type, the thickness, and the desired doneness of meat, it might be necessary to increase or decrease suggested broiling times or adjust the broiling pan to different rack positions. If a broiler pan and insert are not supplied with this appliance, they may be purchased from frigidaire.com.
Use the probe feature for best results when cooking foods such as roasts, hams or poultry, using a probe to check internal temperature is the safest method to ensure properly cooked food. Before using the meat probe read the important information listed here:
Proper placement of probe in food.
• Insert the probe so that the probe tip rests inside the center of the thickest part of meat or food (Figure 21). For best results, do not allow the probe 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 meatloaf 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 into the thickest part of the breast.
To set probe:
1. Insert the probe into the food. Place prepared food on the desired oven rack position and slide into the oven.
2. Plug the connector end of the probe into the probe receptacle while the oven is still cool. The receptacle is located on the upper left front oven cavity wall.
4. Press the + key to set the desired probe temperature between 140°F and 210°F. If no selection is made within 10 seconds, the control will automatically set the default temperature of 170°F and the display will sound an acceptance chime.
Note: The probe must be fully set before setting the oven
mode and temperature mode.
5. Set the oven mode to POWERPLUS PREHEAT, BAKE, CONVECT BAKE, or CONVECT ROAST.
6. Set the oven temp control to the desired cooking temperature.The oven will begin heating.
7. During the cooking process, an up arrow t1 and the current meat probe temperature will appear in the display until the meat probe target temperature is reached.
8. When 75% of the target temperature is reached, the control will chime and a CHECK FOOD reminder will appear in the display. CHECK FOOD will remain in the display and continue to chime every 60 seconds for five minutes or until the oven door is open.
9. Once the target temperature of the food is reached, the control will chime to signal the end of cooking. At this time the will turn off and the display will show the FOOD READY and OVEN WARM messages.
3. When the probe is inserted, an acceptance tone will sound, the probe icon appears in the display (See Figure 22). Close the oven door.
When the meat probe reaches the target temperature, the oven will automatically switch to keep warm (170°F) and remain on for up to 3 hours before turning off automatically. The display will continue to show the meat probe temperature until either keep warm is canceled or by disconnecting the meat probe from the receptacle. Once turned off, the probe icon and temperature will fade from the display.
Important: If the meat probe temperature should exceed the maximum allowable temperature, the oven control will beep and HOT will appear in the display for 40 seconds to notify that the probe temperature is too high.
Keep Warm maintains a temperature of 170°F (77°C) for keeping oven baked foods at serving temperature until canceled. The feature may be used with BAKE, CONVECT BAKE, CONVECT ROAST, and POWERPLUS PREHEAT.
Keep warm tips:
• Always start with hot food. Do not use the keep warm feature to heat cold food.
• Food in heat-safe glass and glass ceramic containers may need higher temperature settings compared to food in regular containers. Avoid repeated openings of the oven, it will allow hot air to escape and the food to cool.
• Aluminum foil may be used to cover food to increase moisture content.
To set keep warm:
1. Arrange interior oven racks and place food in oven.
2. Turn the oven mode selector to BAKE, CONVECT BAKE, CONVECT ROAST, or POWERPLUS PREHEAT.

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.
After the Sabbath observance turn off the Sabbath feature. Press and hold both the oven light and clock keys for at least 3 seconds. SAb will disappear from the display, and the oven may be used with all normal functions.
The temperature in the oven is pre-set at the factory. When 3. Using the + or – key m the bottom of the display press
first using the oven, be sure to follow recipe times and until the desired temperature change (offset) is
temperatures reached. The display will change ± 5° with each key
press to a maximum of + 35° or a minimum of – 35°F.
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 by accessing the UPO (User Programmable Offset).
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.

A self cleaning oven cleans itself with 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.
While the oven is in operation, the oven heats to temperature much higher than those used in normal cooking. Sounds of metal expansion and contraction are normal. Odor is also normal because the food soil is being removed. Smoke may appear through the oven vent.
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 (Figure 27). The woven material of the oven door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or remove the gasket.
• Do not use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so could cause damage.
• Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils, and any aluminum foil. These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures and will melt.
• Completely remove all oven racks and any accessories. If the oven racks are not removed, they will lose their special coating properties and no longer slide in and out of the oven cavity easily.
• Remove any excessive spills. 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 spills can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures.
• Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices, or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may leave a dull spot even after cleaning.
• Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door gasket, and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. These areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water. These areas are shown in white (Figure 27).
If you are planning to use the oven directly after a self clean cycle, remember to allow time for the oven to cool down 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.
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 clean cycle and shut off automatically:
1. Turn both the oven mode and oven temperature selectors to CLEAN. The display will show a 3 hour time (normal clean) and the — and + keys.
2. If a 3 hour clean is desired, the control will accept the time within 3 seconds. However, the user may select a 2 or 4 hour clean by using the – or + keys to change to the desired clean time and then allow the control to accept the change.
REMOVE RACKS notification will flash for a few seconds prompting the user to remove all oven racks. If the oven door is opened as this time the display will show CLO to indicate that the door must be closed before the clean cycle can begin. If the door remains open for more than 3 minutes, the clean function will be canceled.
When the oven is set to run the 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.
3. Once the door is closed the time of day will be visible along with the selected clean time and the door lock icon will be blinking in the display.
6. At this point CLn will appear in the display and the lock icon will blink to signal the end of the clean cycle with a chime. The internal oven temperature will still be hot enough to cause burns.
Caution: Be careful when opening and stand to the side to allow any steam and heat to escape.
4. During the clean cycle the time of day remains in the display and the time remaining in the clean cycle will also be active.(Figure 33)
5. When the clean cycle ends the oven will be too hot for the door to unlock until the oven cools to a safe temperature. This may take up to an hour. During this time the display will show Hot along with the door lock icon.
Note: Once the clean cycle ends the oven will not be available for another clean for 4 hours.
To cancel a self clean before it ends:
Turn both the oven selector knob and the oven temperature knob to the OFF position.
Before cleaning any part of the oven, be sure all controls are turned off and the oven is cool. Remove spills and any heavy soiling as soon as possible. Regular cleaning will reduce the number of major cleanings later.

|For special care instructions see “Cooktop Maintenance” on page 31.|
|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.|
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 door. Do not immerse the door in water. Do not spray or allow water or the glass cleaner to enter the door vents. Do not use oven cleaners, cleaning powders, or any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the outside of the oven door.
Do not clean the oven door gasket. On self-clean 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.
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop.
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended CookTop® Cleaning Creme to the ceramic surface. Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or sponge. 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 aluminum or copper clad bottom 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 glass) with rough bottoms can mark or scratch the cooktop surface.
• Slide anything metal or glass 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.
• Cook foods directly on the cooktop surface without a pan.
• Drop heavy or hard objects on the ceramic glass cooktop, they may cause it to crack.
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a non-abrasive cloth or sponge 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 CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a non-abrasive cleaning tool, 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.
Figure 36: Cooktop care
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content need be removed immediately if spilled or melted onto the ceramic 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 the cooktop to cool, and use the same method for heavy or burned on soils.
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.
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.
Aluminum Foil and Utensils
Never cover any slots, holes, or passages in the oven bottom or cover an entire oven rack with materials such as aluminum foil. Aluminum foil linings may trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
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.
• Aluminum foil – Use of aluminum foil on a hot cooktop can damage the cooktop. Do not use thin aluminum cooking utensils or allow aluminum foil to touch the surface elements under any circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils – The melting point of aluminum is much lower than that of other metals. Care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans are used on the cooktop. If aluminum pans are allowed to boil dry when using the cooktop, not only will the utensil be damaged or destroyed, but it may fuse to, break, or mark the ceramic glass surface, permanently damaging the cooktop surface.
To remove oven door:
1. Open oven door completely, horizontal with floor (See Figure 39).
2. Pull the door hinge locks on both left and right door hinges down from the oven frame completely towards the oven door (See Figure 40). A tool such as a small flat-blade screwdriver may be required.

Special door care instructions – Most oven doors contain glass that can break. Do not close the oven door until all the 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.
The interior oven light is located at the rear of the oven
cavity and are covered with a glass shield. The glass shield
must be in place whenever the oven is in use (Figure 43).
1. Turn electrical power off at the main source or unplug the appliance.
2. Remove interior oven light shield after removing the wire holder by carefully moving the wire to the side of the glass shield. The tension from the wire holds the glass shield in place.
3. Pull the shield straight out. Do not twist or turn.
4. Replace bulb with a new appliance bulb.
5. Replace glass oven light shield. Replace wire holder.
6. Turn power back on again at the main source (or plug the appliance back in).
7. Be sure to reset the time of day on the clock.
For best cooking results, heat the oven before baking cookies, breads, cakes, pies, pastries, etc. There is no need to preheat the oven for roasting meat or baking casseroles. The cooking times and temperatures needed to bake a product may vary slightly from your previously owned appliance.
