California Safe Drinking Water

and Toxic Enforcement Act (Proposition 65)

The Governor of California is required 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.

This appliance may contain or produce a chemical or chemicals which can cause death or serious illness and which are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. To reduce the risk from substances in the fuel or from fuel combustion, make sure this appliance is installed, operated and maintained according to the instructions provided.

SURFACE BURNERS

1. Use Proper Pan Size—This

appliance is equipped with one or more surface burners of different sizes. Select utensils

having flat bottoms large

enough to cover the surface burner. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Use of oversized utensils concentrates heat on cooking surface and can cause damage to range. Proper relationship of utensil to burner improves efficiency.

2.Never Leave Surface Burners Unattended—Boilovercauses smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.

3.Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place—Absenceof these pans or bowls during cooking may subject wiring or components underneath to damage.

4.Protective Liners—Donot use aluminum foil to line surface burner drip bowls or oven bottom, except as suggested in the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in a risk of electric shock, or fire.

5.Glazed Cooking Utensils—Onlycertain types of glass, ceramic, earthware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for rangetop service without breaking due to sudden change in temperature.

6.Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extended Over Adjacent Surface Burners—Toreduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface burners.

!CAUTION

To avoid delayed or improper ignition, do not obstruct the flow of combustion or ventilation air.

!CAUTION

Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets above a range or on the backguard of a range—children climbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.

Cookware Recommendations

Flat Pan Test

For best cooking results, use a pan with a flat bottom. To determine if pan has a flat bottom:

1.Rotate a ruler along bottom of pan. If pan is not flat, gaps between bottom of pan and edge of ruler can be seen.

2.A small groove or mark on a pan does not affect cooking times. However, if a pan has a gap, formed rings, or an uneven bottom, it does not cook efficiently and in some cases may not boil liquids.

What Should You Consider in Cookware?

SELECT

AVOID

Flat bottomed cookware.

Cookware with rounded or warped bottoms.

Heavy gauge metal cookware.

Light gauge metal cookware.

Handles that are secure, that are not

Cookware with loose or broken handles or

heavy enough to tilt pan.

heavy handles that tip pan when empty.

Proper pan size.

Cookware that is smaller than or greater than

 

burner grate by 1 inch.

Flat bottomed wok

Wok with a ringstand on bottom.

Does not cover burner

More than 1 inch overhang

Can I can?

Canning is not recommended with any of the Amana gas ranges or cooktops due to the intense heat and large cookware required to can.

The high, sustained heat generated by the canning cookware overheats both the burners and the surface of the range or cooktop. This may cause damage to burners, knobs, or finish, and may even cause overheating of surrounding walls.

Damage incurred by canning, or attempting to can, is not covered under warranty.

Using the Range

Setting Surface Burner Controls

Burner should ignite within 4 seconds. If burner does not ignite within 4 seconds, turn control knob to OFF position and follow directions in Placing Burner Caps section.

See Delayed Ignition section in Important Safety

Information for safety warnings and procedures.

1. Push in and turn knob to LITE.

Burner should ignite within 4 seconds.

2.After gas ignites, turn control to desired setting.
