This appliance allows for conversion to Liquefied Petroleum (L.P.) Gas.

If L.P. conversion is needed, contact your local L.P. Gas provider for assistance. The L.P. conversion kit is provided with this appliance and is located on the lower REAR (back side) panel of the range. Before installing the kit be sure to read the L.P. Installation Instructions and follow them carefully when making the installation.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN

   Never use the appliance for warming or heating the room. Doing so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning.

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

   Keep oven vent ducts 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.

   Always handle oven racks when the oven is cool. Place oven racks in desired positions while the oven is cool. If a rack must be moved while the oven is hot, use extreme caution. Use potholders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot heating elements in the oven. Remove all cookware and utensils before moving the rack.

   Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil; exposed fat and grease could ignite.

   Do not use aluminum foil or other protective liners 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.

•    Know which knob controls each surface burner. Place a pan of food on the burner before turning it on, and turn the burner off before removing the pan.

•    Always turn knob to the full LITE position when igniting top burners and check that burner has lit. Adjust flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of cookware.

•    Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend over adjacent surface burners.

•    Never leave surface burners unattended at high heat settings — spill overs cause smoking and greasy spills that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.

•    Glazed cooking utensils — Only certain types of cookware are suitable for cook top service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for cook top use.

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


IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR RANGE

   Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area around each burner 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.

For personal safety, the cook top must be properly grounded. For maximum safety, the power cord must be plugged into an electrical outlet that is correctly polarized and properly grounded.

Do not operate the cook top using a 2-prong adapter or an extension cord. If a 2-prong wall receptacle is the only available outlet, it is the personal responsibility of the consumer to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician.

See the installation instructions packaged with this cook top for complete installation and grounding instructions.

A WARNING

Avoid fire hazard or electrical shock. Do not use an adapter plug, and extension cord, or remove grounding prong from the power cord. Failure to follow this warning may cause serious injury, fire, or death.

This appliance is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug. For your protection it should be plugged directly into a properly grounded receptacle. Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug.


Control locations of the gas surface burners

Your built-in range is equipped with gas surface burners with different BTU ratings. The ability to heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as the burner size increases.

The small simmer burner is best used for simmering delicate sauces, etc. This burner is located at the right rear burner position on the cooktop (Figure 1). The standard burner can be used for most surface cooking needs. The standard burners are located at the left front and left rear positions on the cooktop (Figure 1).

The power burners are best used for bringing large quantities of liquid rapidly up to temperature or when preparing larger quantities of food. The POWER burner is located at the right front position on the cooktop.

Regardless of size, always select cookware that is suitable for the amount and type of food being prepared. Select a burner and flame size appropriate to the pan. Never allow flames to extend beyond the outer edge of the pan.

Assembly of the surface burner caps and burner grates

It is very important to make sure that all of the Surface Burner Caps and Surface Burner Grates are installed correctly and at the correct locations.

1.    Remove all packing material from cooktop area.

2.    Discard all packing material (if applicable).

3.    Unpack Burner Grates and position on the cooktop.

3 IMPORTANT

Do not allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other material to enter the gas orifice holder opening.

Always keep the Burner Caps and Burner Heads in place whenever the surface burners are in use.


Operating the gas surface controls

1.    Place cooking utensil on surface burner.

2.    Push the surface control knob down and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF position.

3.    Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position (see figure 2). Note: All four electronic surface ignitors will spark at the same time. However, only the burner you are turning on will ignite.

4.    Visually check that the burner has a flame.

5.    Turn the control knob counterclockwise to the desired flame size. The control knobs do not have to be set at a particular setting. Use the knob indicator settings to adjust the flame as needed. Do not cook with the surface control knob in the LITE position. (The electronic ignitor will continue to spark if the knob is left in the LITE position.)

OFF

Setting proper surface burner flame size

For most cooking: Start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower one to complete the process. Use the recommendations below as a guide for determining proper flame size for various types of cooking. The size and type of utensil used and the amount of food being cooked will

3 IMPORTANT

Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the utensil. A higher flame simply wastes heat and energy, and increases the risk of being burned by the gas flame.

In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface burners can be lit manually. To light a surface burner, hold a lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn the surface control knob to LITE. After burner lights turn the knob to desired setting.

^ NOTE

Settings based on using medium weight metal or aluminum pans. Settings may vary using other types of pans. The color of the flame is key to proper burner adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue, and hardly visible in a well-lighted room. Each cone of the flame should be steady and sharp. Clean burner if flame is yellow-orange.

Oven vent location

 

Types of oven racks

 

The oven vent is located near the back of the cooktop. 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 oven vent.

A CAUTION

Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using the oven. When cooking, the oven interior and exterior, oven racks and cook top will become very hot which can cause burns.

A WARNING

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.

Removing, arranging and replacing racks

Removing, replacing, and arranging flat or offset oven racks

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

Figure 5:    Oven rack types

Oven Rack Descriptions

   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 1/ 2 of a rack position lower than the flat rack and may be used in most oven rack positions.

   To maximize oven cooking space place the bottom oven rack (some models) in the lowest rack position for baking or roasting large cuts of meat.

Air circulation in the oven

For best air circulation when baking, allow a space of 2-4 inches (5-10 cm) around the cookware for proper air circulation. Be sure pans and cookware do not touch each other, the oven door, sides, or back of the oven cavity.

Hot air must be able to circulate around cookware for even heat to reach the food.


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 the oven rack upward slightly and slide the oven rack back into place. Be sure oven racks are level before using.

Self-Cleaning

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

A CAUTION

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

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

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

3 IMPORTANT

Adhere to the following self-clean precautions

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

   Do not clean the oven door gasket (Figure 9). 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 9).


A CAUTION

The oven bake and broil elements may still be hot after they appear to have cooled. Burns may occur if these elements are touched before they have cooled sufficiently.

For models with a visible lower bake element ONLY

This bake element was designed to be tilted up using your hand from the front of the bake element for cleaning purposes. Remove the bottom oven rack before raising the element. Do not to raise the element more than 4 or 5 inches from the resting position.

CARE AND CLEANING

Cleaning Various Parts of Your Wall Oven
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 cleaning later.

Surface Type

Recommendation

Aluminum and Vinyl

Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.

Painted and plastic control knobs Painted body parts

Painted decorative trims

Using a soft cloth, clean with mild dish detergent and water or a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry and polish with a soft cloth. Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth first. Do not spray liquids directly on the oven control and display area. Do not use large amounts of water on the control panel – excess water on the control area may cause damage to the appliance. Do not use other liquid cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or paper towels – they will damage the finish. To remove control knobs, turn to the OFF position; grasp firmly and pull straight off the shaft. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.

Stainless Steel

Your oven finish may be made with stainless steel (some models). Clean the stainless with warm soapy water using a clean sponge or cloth. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft clean cloth. Do not use any store bought cleaners like stainless steel cleaners or any other types of cleaners containing any abrasive, chlorides, chlorine, or ammonia. It is recommended to use mild dish soap and water or a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar.

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

Door liner and body parts

Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp cloth, and then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating.

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 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.
