Important Safety Instructions

Storage in or on Appliance—Flammablematerials should not be stored in an oven, near surface burners or in the drawer (if equipped).This includes paper, plastic and cloth items, such as cookbooks, plasticware and towels, as well as flammable liquids. Do not store explosives, such as aerosol cans, on or near the appliance. Flammable materials may explode and result in fire or property damage.

Do not leave children alone—Childrenshould not be left alone or unattended in the area where appliance is in use.They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance.

DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE BURNERS, AREAS NEAR THESE BURNERS, OVEN BURNERS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF THE OVEN. Both surface burners and oven burners may be hot even though flames are not visible. Areas near surface burners may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials touch these areas until they have had sufficient time to cool. Among these areas are the cooktop, surfaces facing the cooktop, the oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings, oven door and window.

Wear proper apparel—Loose-fittingor hanging garments should never be worn while using the appliance.Do not let clothing or other flammable materials contact hot surfaces.

Do not use water or flour on grease fires—Smotherthe fire with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry chemical orfoam-typeextinguisher.

When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or grease may catch fire if allowed to become too hot.

In case of fire or gas leak, be sure to turn off the main gas shutoff valve.

Use only dry potholders—Moistor damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam.Do not let potholders touch hot heating burners. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of a potholder.

Do not heat unopened food containers—Buildupof pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.

Remove the oven door from any unused range if it is to be stored or discarded.

IMPORTANT—Donot attempt to operate the oven during a power failure. If the power fails, always turn off the oven. If the oven is not turned off and the power resumes, the oven may begin to operate again. Once the power resumes, reset the clock and oven function.

Electronic controllers can be damaged by cold temperatures. When you use your appliance for the first time, or if it has not been used for a long period of time, make sure that it has been exposed to a temperature above 0°C/32°F for at least 3 hours before connecting it to the power supply.


Use proper flamesize—Adjust flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to flame will also improve efficiency.

Do not use stove top grills on the burner grates of sealed gas burners. If you use a stove top grill on a sealed gas burner, it will cause incomplete combustion and can result in exposure to carbon monoxide levels above allowable current standards. This can be hazardous to your health.

• 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 the knob to the full LITE position when igniting top burners. Visually check that burner has lit. Then adjust the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.

• 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 surface burner to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to the surface burner will also improve efficiency.

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



Important Safety Instructions

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

Protective liners—Donot use aluminum foil to line surface burner pans, or oven bottom, except as suggested in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or fire.

Glazed cooking utensils—Onlycertain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for range top service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for cooktop use.

Do not use Searing Grill on the cooktop. The searing grill is not designed for use on the cooktop. Doing so may result in a fire.

Do not use decorative surface burner covers. If a burner is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover will become hot and possibly melt. Burns will occur if the hot covers are touched. Damage may also be done to the cooktop or burners because the covers may cause overheating. Air will be blocked from the burner and cause combustion problems.


Do not clean or operate a broken cooktop—If cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.

Clean cooktop glass 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 harmful fumes if applied to a hot surface.

Avoid scratching the cooktop glass with sharp objects.


Use care when opening oven door or warm & serve drawer (ifequipped)—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/ warm & serve drawer.

Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. The oven vent is located at the center rear of the cooktop. Touching the surfaces in this area when the oven is operating may cause severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heatsensitive items on or near the oven vent. These items could melt or ignite.

NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack with materials such as aluminum foil.Doing so blocks air flow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may trap heat, causing a fire hazard.

Placement of oven/warm & serve drawer (if equipped) racks.Always place oven racks in desired location while oven/warm & serve drawer (if equipped) 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/warm & serve drawer (if equipped). Remove all utensils from the rack before moving.

Do not use a 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 a broiler insert with aluminum foil. Exposed fat and grease could ignite.

Do not touch a hot light bulb with a damp cloth.

Doing so could cause the bulb to break. Disconnect the appliance or turn off the power to the appliance before removing and replacing light bulb.


Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Exhaust fan ventilation hoods and grease filters should be kept clean. Do not allow grease to accumulate on hood or filter. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire. When you are flaming food under the hood, turn the fan on. Refer to the hood manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.

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


In the self-Cleaningcycle only clean the parts listed in this Use and Care Guide.Before self-cleaning the oven, remove all utensils or foods from the oven.

Do not use oven cleaners—No commercial 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—The door gasket is

Control Locations of the Gas Surface Burners

Your 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 (see Figure 2).

The STANDARD burner can be used for most surface cooking needs. The standard burners are located at the left front position and left rear position (some models) on the cooktop (see Figure 2).

The POWER burners are best used for bringing large quantitiesofliquidrapidlyuptotemperatureorwhenpreparing larger quantities of food. The POWER burners are located at the right front and left rear (some models) burner positions on the cooktop (see Figure 2).

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.


Setting Surface Controls

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


3. Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position (see figure 1). 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.)

Figure 1

Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on top of the range when it is in use.These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wood spoons could catch fire if placed too close to a 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. Use caution when lighting surface burners manually.

Setting Proper Surface Burner Flame Size



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.

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 influence the setting needed.

*Flame Size

Type of Cooking

High Flame

Start most foods; bring water to a boil; pan broiling.

Medium Flame

Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces, gravies; steaming.

Low Flame

Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.

For deep fat frying - use a thermometer and adjust the surface control knob accordingly. If the fat is too cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy. If the fat is too hot, the food will brown so quickly that the center will be undercooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the food will neither brown nor cook properly.

*Note: Settings are based on using medium-weightmetal or aluminum pans. Settings may vary when using other types of pans.The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue and hardly visible in a welllighted room. Each cone of flame should be steady and sharp. Adjust or clean burner if flame is yellow-orange.



Before Setting Oven Controls

Air Circulation in the Oven

For best air circulation and baking results allow 2-4"(5-10cm) around the cookware for proper air circulation and be sure pans and cookware do not touch each other, the oven door, sides or back of the oven cavity. The hot air must circulate around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat to reach around the food.

Some models are equipped with a blower which runs in baking andself-cleaningmode to keep all internal components at a cool temperature. It is possible that the blower keeps running even if the range has been turned off, until the components have cooled down.

Multiple Oven Racks


Oven Vent Location

The oven vent is located in the center rear on the cooktop. When the oven is on, warm air passes through the vent. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good baking results. DO NOT BLOCK OVEN VENT.

Never close off the openings with aluminum foil or any other material.

Removing and Replacing Oven Racks

To remove, pull the rack forward until it stops. Lift up front of rack and slide out.To replace, fit the rack onto the guides on the oven walls. Tilt the front of the rack upward and slide the rack back into place.

Broiler Pan

Cooking Informations


Broiling is a method of cooking tender cuts of meat by direct heat under the broil element of the oven.


Preheating is suggested when searing rare steaks. (Remove all utensils before preheating the oven. Foods will stick if placed on hot metal.) To preheat, set the control(s) to BROIL as instructed in the Owner's Guide. Wait for the element to become redhot, usually about 2 minutes. Preheating is not necessary when broiling meats well-done.

To Broil

Broil on side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and serve. Always pull rack out to the "stop" position before turning or removing food.

Determine Broiling Times

Broiling times vary, so watch the food closely. Time not only depends on the distance from element, but on the thickness and aging of meat, fat content and doneness preferred. The first side usually requires a few minutes longer than second. Frozen meats also require additional time.

Broiling Tips (some models)

Some models


The broiler pan and it grid allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the

high heat of the broiler.


DO NOT use a pan without its grid. DO NOT cover the grid with foil. The exposed grease could ignite.

Should an oven fire occur, close the oven door and turn off the oven. If the fire continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use fire extinguisher. DO NOT put water or flour on the fire. Flour may be explosive.

Broiler Clean-UpTips (some models):

To make cleaning easier, line the bottom of the broiler pan with aluminum foil. DO NOT cover the broiler grid with foil.

To prevent grease from baking on, remove the broiler pan from the oven as soon as

cooking is completed. Use hot pads because the broiler pan is extremely hot. Pour off grease. Soak the pan in HOT, soapy water.

Clean the broiler pan as soon as possible after each use. If necessary, use soap-filledsteel wool pads. Heavy scouring may scratch the grid.


Care & Cleaning


During theSelf-Cleaningcycle, 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 theSelf-Cleaningcycle of anyrange.Movebirdstoanotherwell-ventilatedroom.

DO NOT line the oven walls, racks, bottom or any other part of the range withaluminum foil. Doing so will destroy heat distribution, produce poor baking results and cause permanent damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil will melt to the interior surface of the oven).

DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution when opening the door after theSelf-Cleaningcycle is completed. The oven may still be VERY HOT.




Note: See additional cleaning information for the oven door in the General Care & Cleaning section.


A Self-Cleaningoven cleans itself with high temperatures (well above cooking temperatures) which eliminate soils completely or reduces them to a fine powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.

Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:

DO NOTuse oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any part of theSelf-Cleaningoven.

DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. 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 all utensils and any aluminum foil. These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures.

Oven racks do not have to be removed. If they are not removed during the Self-Cleancycle their color will turn slightly blue and the finish will be dull. After the cycle is complete and the oven has cooled, rub the sides of the oven racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small amount of salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack position).

Remove any excessive spillovers in the oven cavity beforestarting the Self-Cleaning cycle. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. DO NOTallow 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.

NOTE: Prior to setting the Self-Cleancycle, any spills remaining on the oven bottom should be removed.

What to Expect during Cleaning:

While the oven is in operation, the oven heats to temperatures much higher than those used in normal cooking. Sounds of metal expansion and contraction are normal. Odor is also normal as the food soil is being removed.

Smoke may appear through the oven vent.

If heavy spillovers are not wiped up before cleaning, they may flame and cause more smoke and odor than usual. This is normal and safe and should not cause alarm. If available, use an exhaust fan during the self-cleaningcycle.

NOTE: A smoke eliminator in the oven vent converts most of the soil into a colorless vapor.

To Set the Self-CleanCycle

Refer to the Oven Control Guide for Self-CleanCycle settings.
