About Your Appliance

CAUTION

NEVER use an appliance as a step to reach cabinets above. Misuse of appliance door, such as stepping, leaning or sitting on the door, may result in possible tipping of the appliance, breakage of door, and serious injuries.

To prevent potential hazard to the user and damage to the appliance, do not use appliance as a space heater to heat or warm a room. Also, do not use the oven as a storage area for food or cooking utensils.

Do not obstruct the flow of air by blocking the oven vent.

Cooking Safety

Never heat an unopened food container in the oven. Pressure build-upmay cause container to burst resulting in serious personal injury or damage to the appliance.

Use dry, sturdy potholders. Damp potholders may cause burns from steam. Dish towels or other substitutes should never be used as potholders because they can trail across hot elements and ignite or get caught on appliance parts.

Wear proper apparel. Loose fitting or long hanging-sleevedapparel should not be worn while cooking. Clothing may ignite and cause burns if garment comes in contact with heating elements.

Always place oven racks in the desired positions while oven is cool. Slide oven rack out to add or remove food, using dry, sturdy potholders. Always avoid reaching into the oven to add or remove food. If a rack must be moved while hot, use a dry potholder. Do not let potholder contact hot element in oven.

Use racks only in the oven in which they were shipped/purchased.

Use care when opening the oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food.

PREPARED FOOD WARNING: Follow food manufacturer’s instructions. If a plastic frozen food container and/or its cover distorts, warps, or is otherwise damaged during cooking, immediately discard the food and its container. The food could be contaminated.

Do not allow aluminum foil or meat probe to contact heating element.

Always turn off all controls when cooking is completed.

DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF OVEN. Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of any oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the appliance may become hot enough to cause burns – among these surfaces are: oven vent opening, surface near this opening, oven door and window of oven door.

Do not touch a hot oven light bulb with a damp cloth as the bulb could break. Should the bulb break, disconnect power to the appliance before removing bulb to avoid electrical shock.

NEVER use aluminum foil to cover an oven rack or oven bottom. Misuse could result in risk of electric shock, fire, or damage to the appliance. Use foil only as directed in this guide.

Utensil Safety

Follow the manufacturer’s directions when using oven cooking bags.

This appliance has been tested for safe performance using conventional cookware. Do not use any devices or accessories that are not specifically recommended in this guide. Do not use eyelid covers, stove top grills or add-onoven convection systems. The use of devices or accessories that are not expressly recommended in this guide can create serious safety hazards, result in performance problems, and reduce the life of the components of the appliance.

If pan is smaller than element, a portion of the element will be exposed to direct contact and could ignite clothing or potholder.

Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for cooktop or oven service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature.

2 Follow utensil manufacturer’s instructions when using glass.

Important Safety Instructions

Turn pan handle toward center of cooktop, not out into the room or over another surface element. This reduces the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, or spillage if pan is accidently bumped or reached by small children.

Be sure utensil is large enough to properly contain food and avoid boilovers. Pan size is particularly important in deep fat frying. Be sure pan will accommodate the volume of food that is to be added as well as the bubble action of fat.

Never let a pan boil dry as this could damage the utensil and the appliance.

Cooktop

NEVER leave surface units unattended especially when using high heat. An unattended boilover could cause smoking and a greasy spillover can cause a fire.

This appliance is equipped with different size surface elements. Select pans with flat bottoms large enough to cover element. Fitting pan size to element will improve cooking efficiency.

Coil Elements

To prevent damage to removable heating elements, do not immerse, soak or clean in a dishwasher or self-cleanoven. A damaged element could short resulting in a fire or shock hazard.

Make sure drip bowls are in place as absence of these bowls during cooking could damage wiring.

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.

Deep Fat Fryers

Use extreme caution when moving the grease pan or disposing of hot grease. Allow grease to cool before attempting to move pan.

Ventilating Hoods

Clean range hood and filters frequently to prevent grease or other flammable materials from accumulating on hood or filter and to avoid grease fires.

When flaming foods under the hood, turn the fan on.

caution. Use care to avoid steam burns if a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot surface. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.

Clean only parts listed in this guide.

Self-CleanOven(select models)

CAUTION

Before self-cleaningthe oven, remove the oven racks, broiler pan, food and any other utensils. Wipe spillovers to prevent excessive smoke andflare-ups.

Do not clean door gasket. The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the gasket.

Do not use oven cleaners or oven liners of any kind in or around any part of the self-cleanoven.

It is normal for the cooktop of the range to become hot during a self-cleancycle. Therefore, touching the cooktop during a clean cycle should be avoided.

Important Safety Notice and

Warning

The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) requires the Governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposures to such substances.

Users of this appliance are hereby warned that when the oven is engaged in the self-cleancycle, there may be somelow-levelexposure to some of the listed substances, including carbon monoxide. Exposure to these substances can be minimized by properly venting the oven to the outdoors by opening the windows and/or door in the room where the appliance is located during theself-cleancycle.

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING PET BIRDS: Never keep pet birds in the kitchen or in rooms where the fumes from the kitchen could reach. Birds have a very sensitive respiratory system. Fumes released during an oven self-cleaningcycle may be harmful or fatal to birds. Fumes released due to overheated cooking oil, fat, margarine and overheatednon-stickcookware may be equally harmful.
