Important Safety Instructions


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

Use Proper Pan Size—Thisappliance is equipped with one or more surface units of different sizes. Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit 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 element will also improve efficiency.

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

Never Leave Surface Elements Unattended at High Heat Settings—Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.

Do Not Immerse or Soak Removable Heating Elements—

Heating elements should never be immersed in water. Heating elements clean themselves during normal operation.

Glazed Cooking Utensils—Onlycertain types of glass, glass/ ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils 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 flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn the fan on.



Use Care When Opening Oven Door or Warmer Drawer (if equipped)—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 Unobstructed. The oven vent is located under the left rear surface element if your model is equipped with coil elements. The oven vent is located below the backguard for models equipped with ceramic-glass cook tops. Touching the surfaces in this area when the oven is operating may cause severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or near the oven vent. These items could 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 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 utensils from the rack before moving.

Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The broiler pan and its insert allow dripping fat to drain and be kept 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—Donot 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.

Clean in the self-cleaningcycle only the parts listed in this Use & Care Manual.Before self cleaning the oven, remove the broiler pan and any utensils or foods from the oven.

Do Not Use Oven Cleaners—Nocommercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind should be used in or around any part of the oven.

Do Not Clean Door Gasket—Thedoor gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or move the gasket.

•The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the self-cleaningcycle of any range. Move birds to anotherwell-ventilatedroom.


Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area underneath each surface element. Do not allow grease to accumulate.

Kitchen cleaners and aerosols—Alwaysfollow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for use.Be aware that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing damage and injury.

Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently—Greaseshould not be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter.Follow manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.


Do Not Cook on Broken Cook Top—Ifcook top should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cook top and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.

Clean Cook Top with Caution—Ifa 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.

Before Setting Oven Controls



Setting Surface Controls

The Dual Radiant Elements (all models)

The cooktop is equipped with one or more dual radiant surface elements. Symbols on the control panel (See Fig. 4) are used to indicate which coil of the dual radiant element will heat. The symbol shown in Fig. 1 indicates that only the inner coil will heat. The symbol shown in Fig. 4 indicates that both inner and outer coils will heat . You may switch from either coil setting at any time during cooking.

To Operate the Dual Element(s):

1. Place correctly sized cookware on the dual surface element.

2.Push in and turn the control knob counterclockwise (See Fig. 2) for smaller cookware or clockwise (See Fig. 5) for larger cookware.

3.Use the ESEC digital display window for the desired setting. Turn (do not push) 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. Note: The HE message will appear after turning the control knob toOFF if the cooktop is still hot and will remain on until the radiant heating surface area has cooled sufficiently.Note: See page 8, Fig. 5 for recommended control settings.

Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned off.The glass surface may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.

The Bridge Radiant Element (some models)

Some ceramic cooktops are equipped with a “BRIDGE” surface element located at the left front and middle (See Fig. 10) positions. The Bridge can be used when cooking with rectangular (like a griddle) or oval shaped cookware (Fig. 10). The element will maintain an even temperature setting across both portions of the Bridge. If needed for normal cookware, the Bridge element can work like a single element without the Bridge (See Fig. 8).

Bridge element operation symbols are located on the control panel on each side of the Bridge element control knob. These symbols indicate the direction to turn the control knob when operating the Bridge element. The symbol in Fig. 7 indicates that only the single portion of the Bridge element will heat (See Fig. 8). The symbol in Fig. 9 indicates that both the single and Bridge portions of the element will heat together (Fig. 10). You may switch from either of these settings at any time during cooking with the Bridge element.
