Important Safety Information

WARNING

To avoid risk of electrical shock, personal injury, or death, make sure your cooktop has been properly grounded and always disconnect it from main power supply before any servicing.

WARNING

To avoid risk of personal injury, do not touch surface elements or area near elements. Surface elements may be dark in color even when hot. Areas near elements may be hot enough to burn. During and after use, do not touch or let clothing or other flammable material contact surface elements until they have had time to cool.

CAUTION

Do not obstruct the flow of combustion or ventilation air.

Do not store gasoline or other combustible materials near cooktop.

All Appliances

1.Proper Installation. Be sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician.

2.Never Use Your Appliance for Warming or Heating the Room.

3.Do Not Leave Children Alone. Children should not be alone or unattended in the area where the appliance is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance.

4.Wear Proper Apparel. Loose fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while using appliance.

5.User Servicing. Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.

6.Storage in or on Appliance. Flammable materials should not be stored on or near surface units.

7.Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires. Smother fire or flame, or use dry chemical or foam-typeextinguisher.

8.Use Only Dry Potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth.

Surface Cooking Units

1.Use Proper Pan Size. This appliance is equipped with one or more surface units of different size. Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface heating element. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the heating element to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to burner will also improve efficiency.

2.Never Leave Surface Units Unattended. Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.

3.Glazed Cooking Utensils. Only certain types of glass, ceramic, earthware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for cooktop service without breaking due to sudden change in temperature.

4.Never sit, stand, or lean on any part of the cooktop.

5.Utensil Handles Should be Turned Inward and Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface Units. Reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil. Position utensil handle so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface units.

Installation

Glass/Ceramic Cooking Surfaces

1.Do Not Cook on Broken cooktop. If cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electrical shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.

2.Clean cooktop 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 noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.

Exhaust Vent

1.Clean Vents Frequently. Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on vent or filter.

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

3.Turn off power at fuse panel.

Unpacking Cooktop

Remove all packing and printed material packed with cooktop.

Slide cooktop out of box.

To avoid damage, do not slide cooktop across countertop.

Countertop Options

Cooktop can be installed with glasstop resting on the countertop or with the glasstop recessed into the countertop. If a recessed installation is desired, a countertop inlay kit can be purchased from an Amana dealer. Installation instructions for a recessed installation are provided in the inlay kit. The following instructions are to install the cooktop with the glasstop resting on the countertop.

In Case of Fire

Fires can occur as a result of over cooking or excessive grease. Though a fire is unlikely, if one occurs, proceed as follows:

Surface Element Fire

1.Smother the fire with a nonflammable lid or baking soda, or use a Class ABC or BC extinguisher. Not water. Not salt. Not flour.

2.As soon as it is safe to do so, turn the surface controls to OFF. Turn off power supply.

Precautions

Do not cook food directly on cooktop surface, always use cookware.

Do not mix household cleaning products. Chemical mixtures may interact with objectionable or even hazardous results.

Do not put plastic items on warm cooking areas. They may stick and melt.

Do not allow pots to boil dry as this can cause damage to cooking surface and pan.

Do not use cooktop surface as a cutting board.

Countertop Cutout and Clearances

Prepare countertop opening according to dimensions shown in diagrams. If installed over Amana “AOES” or “AOCS” wall ovens, refer to cooktop over wall oven installation instructions.

WARNING

To avoid property damage or personal injury, observe the following specifications.

To avoid serious burns or other personal injury caused by reaching over heated surface element, avoid locating storage cabinets above surface elements. If cabinet storage is located above surface units, install range hood.

CAUTION

To avoid serious burns or other personal injury, do not store items of interest to children above or behind cooktop. Children climbing on cooktop to reach items could be seriously injured.
