IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING

Storage in or on appliance — to avoid a fire hazard, flammablematerialsshouldnotbestoredinan oven, near surface units or in the storage drawer, warmer drawer or lower oven. 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 range.

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.

CAUTION

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

Do not touch surface heating units or surface cooking elements, areas near these units or elements, or interior surfaces of oven. Both surface heating and oven heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near surface cooking units 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 oven door 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 — flour may be explosive. Smother the fire with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-typeextinguisher.

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

Use dry potholders — moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam.

Do not let potholders touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of a potholder.

Do not heat unopened food containers - buildup of pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.

IMPORTANT

Do not attempt to operate the range during a power failure. If the power fails, always turn off the range. If the range is not turned off and the power resumes, the range will begin to operate again. Once the power resumes, reset the clock and oven function.

Be sure to always have an appropriate foam-typefire extinguisher available, visible and easily accessible located near the appliance.

Never modify or alter the construction of a range by removing the leveling legs, panels, wire covers, anti-tipbracket/screws, or any other part of the range.

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

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN

Use care when opening oven door , lower 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 interior 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.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

SELF-CLEANINGOVENS

WARNING

Do not touch the oven during theself-cleancycle.

Keep children away from oven during self-cleancycle.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns.

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—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 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.

IMPORTANTINSTRUCTIONSFORCLEANING YOUR RANGE

Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area around 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 the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning hoods.

FOR CERAMIC-GLASSCOOK TOP MODELS

Do not cook on broken cook top—If cook 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—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.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR COOKTOP

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.

Important Safety Notice

The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.

oven vent location

BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS

Oven vent location

The oven vent is located under the left side of the control panel(See Fig. 1). When the oven is heating, warm air passes through this vent. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven which helps to provide good baking results. Do not block the oven vent.

Fig. 1

Oven racks

CAUTION

Always use oven mitts to protect hands from possible burns when using the oven or cooktop. The oven, oven racks and cooktop will becomevery hot.

Oven rack stop

Most oven racks slide on rack guides provided along the oven cavity sides. The rack guides are curved near the front of each guide. The curve will catch and hold the oven rack stable into a stop position when an oven rack is extended straight out from the oven.

For better access to food items in the oven, slowly pull the oven rack straight out to the oven rack stop position (Fig. 3) before checking on food items or removing food dishes from the oven.

BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS

Types of oven racks

Your range may be equipped with one or more of the following oven rack types listed below:

The flat oven rack (some models) may be used for most cooking needs and may be placed in most rack positions.

The flat handle oven rack (some models) may be used for most cooking needs. May be placed in most rack positions. Similar to the flat oven rack but comes with abuilt-inhandle.

The offset oven rack (some models) provides additional stepdown positions from the standard flat rack design. The offset design positions the base of the rack about 1/2 of a rack position lower than the flat rack and may be used in most oven rack positions.

The half rack (some models) has a removable section to allow for taller cooking utensils in the oven. When the removable section is in place, the rack may be used like the flat oven rack.

The Effortless™ Oven Rack (some models) instructions are provided later in this section.

The bottom oven rack (if equipped) should only be used in the lowest oven rack position. To maximize oven space, place cookware on the bottom oven rack for example when roasting large cuts of meat. Do not use thebottom oven rack in any other oven rack position.

Air circulation in the oven

For best baking results allow 2 to 4 inches (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. For even heating, hot air must be able to circulate freely around the pans and cookware (See Fig. 1).

Fig. 1

Baking layer cakes with 1 or 2 oven racks

For best results when baking cakes using 2 oven racks, place cookware on rack in positions 2 & 5. For best results when using a single or an offset oven rack, place cookware on rack in position 2, 3 or 4.

BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS

Effortless™ Oven Rack system

Some models are equipped with a special oven rack system that automatically partially extends the oven rack from the interior oven glides to assist in easier access to your food items. This feature works whenever the oven door is opened or closed.

To assemble the Effortless™ Oven Rack system:

1.Locate all required parts. You will need the supplied oven rack (Effortless™ Oven Rack is a flat rack with a special dark coating on theleft and right rack sides) and the 2 supplied chrome connector arms.

2.Open the oven door. Be sure the oven is completely cool before proceeding.

3.Place the oven rack in positions 2, 3 or 4 only (see previous page to verify positions).Be sure the rack connector brackets are at the rear of the range and pointing towards oven bottom (See Fig. 2).

4.Assemble one connector arm at a time. With the oven door open and the oven rack in place, install one end of the connector arm to the hole in the door connector bracket (Fig. 1) and the other end in the hole in therack connector bracket (Fig. 2 and as in Fig. 3). The oven rack may need to be adjusted in or out in the rack position to match the length of the connector arm.

5.While holding the connector arm in place, twist the connector arm so the ends of the connector arm point upwards (See Figs. 4 & 5). The connector arm should now be locked into position.

6.Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the other connector arm.

7.Once both connector arms are properly in place, be sure to test the oven rack operation by gently closing the oven door. The oven rack should move in and out of the oven freely when the door is opened or closed.

CAUTION

Never pick up hot oven rack parts. Make sure the oven and oven racks are COMPLETLY cool and safe to touch before attempting to assemble or disassemble the Effortless™ Oven Rack.

IMPORTANT

REMOVE ALL OVEN RACKS and accessories before starting a self-cleancycle.If the oven racks are left in the oven during the self-clean cycle, the glide ability of the Effortless™ Oven Rack system will be damaged and will cause oven racks to loose their shiny finish. Remove ALLoven racks and clean according to instructions provided in the Care & Cleaning section of this manual.

IMPORTANT

Only the Effortless™ Oven Rack system should be used in oven rack position 2. Placing ANY other rack in oven rack position 2 will prevent the oven door from fully closingand maydamage the oven door, oven cavity or the door connector brackets.

If the rack system is not assembled with the connector arms the Effortless™ Oven rack may be used in oven rack positions 2 thru 7. Do not attempt to use the Effortless™ Oven rack in rack position 1.

BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS

About the ceramic glass cooktop

The design pattern on the ceramic cooktop outlines the area and size of the surface element located just below the ceramic glass cooktop. Be sure to match the pan size with the diameter of the element outline on the cooktop and use only qualityflat-bottomedcookware.

The type and size of cookware, the number of surface elements in use and their settings are all factors that will affect the amount of heat that will spread to areas beyond the surface elements. The areas surrounding the elements may become hot enough to cause burns.

About the radiant surface elements

When first turned on, the element temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the temperature rises, the element will glow red. To maintain the selected power setting it is normal for the element to cycle ON and OFF. The element will retain enough heat to provide a uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle.

For efficient cooking, turn the surface element OFF several minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to complete the cooking process.

Element on & hot surface indicator lights

Your appliance is equipped with two different types of radiant surface control indicator lights that will glow on the backguard — the element on indicator lights and thehot surface indicator light (See Fig. 1).

The element on indicator lightsare located on the control panel above each radiant element control knob and will glow when a surface element is turned ON. A quick glance at this indicator light after cooking is an easy check to be sure ALL surface controls are turned OFF. The hot surfaceindicator light located on the control panel will glow when any surface cooking area heats up and will remain onuntil the glass cooktop has cooled to a

MODERATElevel.

NOTES

Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to cycle ON and OFF, even at the HI setting. This helps to prevent damage to the ceramic smoothtop. Cycling at the HI setting is normal and will occur more often if the cookware is too small for the radiant element or if the cookware bottom is not flat.

Be sure to read the detailed instructions for ceramic glass cooktop care in theCare & Cleaning andBefore You Call checklist sections of this Use & Care Manual.

Types of cooktop elements

The patterns provided on the ceramic glass surface outlines the size, shape and type of element available at each position on the cooktop. The single radiant element will have a single round outline pattern.

The versatile dual radiant element (some models) will have a dual ring pattern marked on the cooktop. This element allows the user to set the smaller inner portion only or both the inner and outer portions may be set to heat together.

The keep warm zone (some models) should always be used to keep already cooked foods warm. This element is located at the center rear position (Fig. 2).

BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS

Using proper cookware

The size and type of cookware used will influence the setting needed for best cooking results. Be sure to follow the recommendations for using proper cookware as illustrated.

Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface element (See Fig. 1). Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the cookware (Fig. 2). For additional information about the ceramic cooktop see "Cooktop Cleaning" and "Cooktop Maintenance" in the Care & Cleaning section.

IMPORTANT

Do not place empty aluminum, glass or porcelain-enamelcoated cookware on the ceramic cooktop! The melting point of some cookware types may be reached if left empty on the cooktop while heating. If the cookware melts it could bond to and damage the cooktop! Be sure to follow all the cookware manufacturer’s suggestions when using any type of cookware on the ceramic cooktop.

Cookware material types for the cooktop

The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly heat is transferred from the surface element to the pan bottom. The most popular materials available are:

Aluminum - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware resists staining & pitting). If aluminum pans slide across the ceramic cooktop, they may leave metal marks which will resemble scratches. Remove these marks immediately.

Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily. May leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see Aluminum).

Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.

Cast iron - A slow heat conductor however will retain heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached. Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.

Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material.Porcelain-enamelcoating must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktops.

Glass - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass.

Flat bottom and straight sides.

Tight fitting lids.

Weight of handle does not tilt pan. Pan is well balanced.

Pan size matches the amount of food to be prepared and the size of the surface element.

Always match cookware diameter to element

marking on cooktop.

Made of material that conducts heat well.

Easy to clean.

Curved or warped cookware.

Cookware larger than cooking are marked on cooktop by more than onehalf inch or 12mm.

Cookware smaller than cooking are marked on cooktop.

Handle tilts cookware.

CAUTION

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.

Do not place flammable items such as plastic 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 wooden spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the surface elements.

IMPORTANT

Do not allow aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt to make contact with the cooktop when hot. If these items melt on the cooktop they may damage the ceramic cooktop.

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS

Single radiant surface elements

Fig. 2

To operate a single radiant element:

1.Place correctly sized cookware on a single radiant surface element.

2.Push in and turn the surface control knob in either direction (Fig. 2) to the desired setting (See the suggested power level settings for single or dual radiant elements in Fig. 1).

3.When finished cooking, turn the radiant surface element OFF before removing the cookware.

Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking. The control knobs do not have to be set exactly on a particular spot. Use the graphics provided as a guide and adjust the control knob as needed.

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.

NOTES

The size and type of utensil used, and the amount and type of food being cooked will influence the setting needed for best cooking results.

The element on indicator lights will glow when one or more elements are turned ON. A quick glance at these indicator lights when cooking is finished is an easy check to be sure all control knobs are turned OFF. Thehot surface indicator light will continue to glow AFTER the control knob is turned to the OFF position and will glow until the heating surface area has cooled sufficiently.

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS

Dual radiant surface elements (some models)

Symbols on the backguard will help choose which portion of the dual radiant element to set. The symbol indicates a setting for the inner coil only. The symbol indicates a setting for both inner and outer coils.

To operate a dual radiant element:

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

2.Push in and turn the surface control knob clockwise (See Fig. 1) to begin heating both the inner and outer portions of the dual element. If only the inner heating portion is needed for smaller cookware, push in and turn the knob counter-clockwise(See Fig. 2).

3.When finished cooking, turn the dual radiant surface element OFF before removing the cookware.

Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking. The surface control knobs do not have to be set exactly on a particular mark.

Use the marks as a guide and adjust the control knob as needed.

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.

You may switch from either single or dual element setting at any time while cooking. For power level recommendations see the suggested power level settings for single or dual radiant elements provided on the page for single element instructions.

CAUTION

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.

Do not place flammable items such as plastic 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 wooden spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the surface elements.

Keep warm zone (some models)

The purpose of the keep warm zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Use the keep warm feature to keep cooked foods hot such as; vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and oven-safedinner plates.

Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food on the keep warm zone. All food placed on the warming zone should be covered with a lid to maintain quality.

For best results, when warming pastries or breads, the cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape.

Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very difficult to clean.

Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use on the keep warm zone.

Setting the keep warm zone control:

1.Push in and turn the knob in either direction to the desired setting (See Fig 1). The temperatures are approximate, and are designated by hi andlo.

However, the control may be set at any position between hi andlo for different levels of warming.

2.When ready to serve, turn the control to OFF. The keep warm zone will remain hot until the indicator light turns OFF.

CAUTION

Unlike the surface elements, the keep warm zone will not glow red when it is hot. To avoid burns always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from the cooktop including the keep warm zone as cookware and plateswill be hot.

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.

Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on the cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the surface elements.

Home canning

Be sure to read and observe all the following points when home canning using your appliance.

IMPORTANT

NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over 2 different surface cooking areas at the same time. This may cause the ceramic cooktop to fracture.

Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning. Use a straight-edgeto check canner bottom. Be sure the cookware has no ridges that radiate from the bottom center when home canning using a ceramic cooktop.

Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more quickly.

Use the highest heat seating when first bringing the water to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest possible setting to maintain that boil.

Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed 1 inch beyond the surface element markings or burner. It is recommended to use smaller diameter canners on electric coil and ceramic glass cooktops.

When using two canners at the same time, stagger the canners on the left and right sides of the cooktop. This will help distribute the heat generated more evenly.

Be sure to review the latest online information for home canning. Some suggestions might be the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service or the

National Center for Home Food Preservation (NCHFP).

CAUTION

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.

Quick bake (some models)

Benefits of the quick bake feature

Foods will cook faster, saving time and energy.

Multiple rack baking.

No special pans or bakeware needed.

How quick bake works

Quick bake uses a fan to circulate the oven's heat uniformly and continuously around the oven. This improved heat distribution allows for fast, even cooking and browning results. It also gives better baking results when using two racks at the same time.

Heated air flows around the food from all sides, sealing in juices and flavors. Meats cooked with quick bake are juicer. Poultry is crisp on the outside while staying tender and moist on the inside. Breads and pastry brown more evenly. Most foods baked in a standard oven can be cooked faster and more evenly withquick bake.

Suggestions for quick bake

Whenbaking

For optimum cooking results it is recommended to preheat the oven when baking foods such as cookies, biscuits and breads.

Reduce oven temperature 25°F from recipe’s recommended oven temperature. Follow the remainder of the recipe’s instructions using the minimum recommended cook time.

When using 2 oven racks at the same time, place in positions 2 & 5 for best results (See Fig. 1).

When roasting

Preheating is not necessary when roasting foods using quickbake.

Since quick bake cooks food faster, reduce the cook time by 25% from the recommended cook time of your recipe. Check the food at this time. If necessary, increase cook time until the desired doneness is obtained.

Do not cover foods when dry roasting - this will prevent the air from circulating around the food.

NOTES

Layer cakes will have better results using the bake feature.

When using quick bake (some models) cook time reductions may vary depending on the amount and type of food being cooked.

Easy probe

For the best results when cooking many foods such as roasts, hams or poultry, use the easy probe feature. This feature also works well with foods such as meat loaf and casseroles.

The easy probe will provide you with the internal temperature of the food during cooking and eliminates any need for guesswork.

For some foods, especially poultry or roasts, checking the internal temperature is the best way to insure properly cooked food.

Fig. 1

CAUTION

To avoid the possibility of burns after cooking, always use caution when disconnecting the probe from the receptacle or food. The probe may be hot. Be sure to use a pot holder to protect hands.

IMPORTANT

Use only the probe originally provided with this appliance. Connecting any other probe or device to the probe receptacle could result in damage to the oven control, electronics and the probe receptacle.

To avoid damaging the probe, handle the probe carefully when inserting and removing from food or the probe receptacle. Do not use tongs to pull on the probe or probe cable. Always defrost frozen foods completely before inserting the probe into food.

When removing the probe from the receptacle or food, always remove using the probe handles (Fig. 1).

Remove the probe from the oven when finished. To avoid damaging the probe do not store the probe inside the oven.

Always double check that the probe is removed from the oven interior before starting self-clean.The probe is not designed to withstand the high temperatures produced during aself-cleancycle.

Do not use the probe without the probe properly inserted into the probe receptacle and the food. To protect the probe when inserted in the receptacle, the oven will automatically turn OFF if the probe temperature sensor reaches 300°F (149°C) or more.

SETTING OVEN CONTROLS

NOTES

Do not remove the probe from receptacle or food until the desired internal temperature is reached. If the probe is removed from the receptacle the probe feature will automatically cancel but the oven will remain ON. If the probe is removed from the food only, the internal food temperature reading will no longer be accurate.

The easy probe feature cannot be set when broil orself-clean is active. If the probe is inserted into the receptacle and the broil orself-cleankeypad is pressed, the oven control will sound a triple beep error message and the oven will not activate.

If the probe is disconnected from the receptacle and the easy probe keypad is pressed, the display will

show "- - -" (about 3 seconds), indicating the probe is not active.

To set easy probe:

1.Prepare food and properly insert the probe sensor into the middle portion of the food (See Figs. 2 & 3). The probe should be inserted into the food before starting the cooking process and while the oven is still cool.

2.Place the prepared food on desired oven rack position and slide rack completely inside the oven.

3.Insert the probe connector completely into the probe receptacle (Fig. 1) located at the upper left front side of the oven interior.

4.In a few seconds a tone will sound and the indicator light located above the easy probe keypad will turn ON indicating that the probe is functioning correctly.

5.Close the oven door. Set the oven for bake orquick bake and if needed, adjust to the desired baking temperature.

6.To display the internal food temperature press

keypad at any time while cooking. The food internal temperature will appear for about 3 seconds and the display will revert back to the set oven temperature.

From time to time during the cooking process, press the easy probe keypad to check on the internal food temperature, especially as the temperature approaches the desired target.

7.When the desired internal food temperature is reached, press cancel to stop bake or quick bake.

8.Open oven door and using a pot holder carefully unplug the probe from the probe receptacle. The range interior, probe, cookware and food may be very hot.

9.Remove food from oven and carefully remove the probe sensor from the food.

Probe error message:

Should the oven control display the error message "PErr", it may be that the probe connector is not fully inserted into the probe receptacle (see Fig. 1) or that the probe has overheated. When this message displays, the control will not allow any oven feature to activate until corrected.

Remove the probe from the receptacle, then reconnect probe into the receptacle (check that it is fully inserted into the receptacle). Be sure the probe sensor is covered by food and not exposed to avoid overheating.

If the probe is properly connected into the receptacle and properly positioned into the food but the error message remains displayed, the probe might be defective and need replaced. If so, remove the probe from the oven and call your authorized service agent for assistance. You may continue to use the oven without the probe feature.

SETTING OVEN CONTROLS

Adjusting the oven temperature

Your appliance has been factory calibrated and tested to ensure accurate baking temperatures. For the first few uses, follow your recipe times and temperature recommendations carefully. If you think the oven is cooking too hot or too cool for your recipe times, you may adjust the control so the oven cooks hotter or cooler than the temperature displayed.

To adjust oven temperature:

1. Press

keypad.

2.Set the temperature to 550°F (287°C) by pressing the keypad.

3.Within 2 seconds, press and holdkeypad until

the 2 digit display appears. Release

keypad. The

display now indicates the amount of degrees offset between the original factory temperature setting and the current temperature setting. If the oven control has the original factory calibration, the display will read "0".

4.The temperature may now be adjusted up or down 35°F (19°C), in 5°F increments by pressing and holding

the

or

keypad. Adjust until the desired

amount of offset appears in the display. When lowering the oven temperature, a minus sign (-)will appear before the number to indicate that the oven will be cooler by the displayed amount of degrees.

5. When you have made the desired adjustment, press

keypad to accept.

NOTES

Any oven temperature offset made will not affect the broil or self-cleaningfeature temperatures.

If the oven display has been set to display Celsius, adjustments made will be in 1°C increments with each

press of the orkeypad.

Do not use oven thermometers such as those found in grocery stores to check the temperature settings inside the oven. These oven thermometers may vary as much as 20 to 40 degrees from actual temperatures.

Operating the oven light

The interior oven light will automatically turn ON when the oven door is opened.

Press the

keypad to turn the interior oven light ON and

OFF whenever the oven door is closed.

The interior oven light is located at the upper left rear wall of the oven interior and is covered with a glass shield held by a wire holder. The glass shield must be in place whenever the oven is in use.

To replace the oven light, see "Replacing the oven light" in the Care & Cleaning section.

24

Self-clean

A self-cleaningoven cleans itself using high temperatures that are well above normal cooking temperatures. The clean feature, if used properly, will eliminate soils from the oven completely or reduce them to a fine powdered ash. Once the oven has cooled, simply wipe away the ash using

a damp cloth.

The self-clean feature also provides optional cleaning duration choices. A3-hourcleaning time for normal cleaning or a2-hourclean for lighter soils.

WARNING

Do not touch the oven during theself-cleancycle.

Keep children away from oven during self-cleancycle.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns.

CAUTION

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.

Wait until the oven is completely cool and remove bottom oven rack before attempting to raise the element. Do not to raise the lower element more than 4 or 5 inches from the resting position.

SELF-CLEANING

IMPORTANT

Read before starting self-clean

Remove all items from the oven and cooktop, includingfood, cookware, utensils, plastic andany aluminum foil. Aluminum foil will not withstand high temperatures generated during aself-cleancycle.

Remove all oven racksand any accessoriesfrom the oven to avoid possible heat damage. If the oven racks are not removed they may discolor. The Effortless™ Oven Rack (some models) must be removed before starting self-clean to avoid damaging the glide ability of the rack.

Be sure the oven vent area is clear.

Remove all items from the lower storage drawer (some models) or warming drawer (some models).

Be sure the oven light shield is in place. Turn off the oven light.

Remove any excessive spillovers. Spills on the oven bottom should be wiped-up and removed before startingself-clean. To clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large food spillovers can cause heavy smoke or a fire during self-clean.

Remove any food spills from oven that have a high sugar or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) before starting a self-cleancycle. If they are not removed they may leave a dull spot even afterself-cleaning.

Clean any soil from the outer oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door gasket and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. Clean using soap and water before starting self-clean.These areas (See Fig. 1) heat sufficiently to burn soil on.

Do not clean the oven door gasket (See Fig. 1). Do not use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so could cause damage to the 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 commercial oven cleaners or protective coatings of any kind inside oven. Residue from oven cleaners may damage the porcelain during the nextself-cleancycle.

Cooktop maintenance

IMPORTANT

Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintainingyourceramicglasscooktop.

Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use an abrasive cleaning pad. Only use cleaning products that have been specifically designed for cooktops.

Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply some of the glass-ceramiccooktop cleaner supplied with your new appliance. Buff with anon-abrasive cloth orno-scratchcleaning pad. This will make cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. The special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective finish on the glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions.

Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the cooktop can leave metal markings on the surface. These marks should be removed immediately after the cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning cream. Metal marks can become permanent if not removed prior to future use. Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough or dirty bottoms canmark or scratch the cooktop surface.

To maintain the cooktop appearance :

Never slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop surface.

DO NOT use cookware with dirt or dirt build up on bottoms. Replace with clean flat bottom cookware before using on the cooktop.

Never use the ceramic cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the kitchen.

Never cook foods directly on the cooktop surface.

DO NOT drop heavy or hard objects on the ceramic glass cooktop, this may cause it to crack.

CARE & CLEANING

Cooktop cleaning

WARNING

DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health and can chemically damage the ceramic glass surface.

CAUTION

To avoid possible burns, be sure the surface controls are turned OFF and the cooktop is cool before cleaning the cooktop.

For light to moderate soil- Apply a few drops of glassceramic cooktop cleaner directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a non-abrasive plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue.

For heavy, burned on soil- Apply a few drops of glassceramic cooktop cleaner directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using anon-abrasiveplastic typeno-scratchcleaning pad, applying pressure as needed. Do not use the pad you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.

If soils remain, carefully scrape soils with a metal razor blade scraper, holding scraper at a 30 degree angle to the surface. Remove loosened soils with cooktop cleaning cream and buff surface clean.

30°

Removing plastic or foods with a high sugar content:

These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled or melted onto the ceramic cooktop surface. Permanent damage (such as pitting of the cooktop surface) may occur if not removed immediately. After turning the surface elements OFF, use a razor blade scraper or a metal spatula with a mitt and scrape the soil from the hot surface (as illustrated). Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same method for heavy or burned on soils.

29

CARE & CLEANING

Cooktop cleaning (cont’d)

DO NOT use the following on the cooktop:

Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as metal and some nylon pads. They may scratch the cooktop, making it more difficult to clean.

Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach, ammonia or oven cleaners, as they may etch or discolor the cooktop.

Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as they can leave soil or lint on the cooktop which can burn and cause discoloration.

Aluminum foil and oven liners

WARNING

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.

Using a liner in the oven will restrict the heat and air flow needed to obtain the best possible cooking results for any oven, including the warmer drawer (some models).

Do not use oven bottom liners or use aluminum foil to cover the oven bottom or any oven racks.

During self-cleanthe oven temperature can become hot enough to melt aluminum cooking utensils or aluminum foil which could result in damage to the oven interior porcelain finish.

Aluminum foil and oven liners (cont’d)

Aluminum foil and the cooktop - Use of aluminum foil on a hot cooktop can damage the ceramic glass. Do not use thin aluminum cooking utensils or allow aluminum foil to touch the ceramic cooktop under ANY circumstances.

Aluminum utensils and the cooktop - Care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans are used on the cooktop. If aluminum pans are allowed to boil dry when using the cooktop, the utensil be damaged or destroyed, and may fuse to, break or mark the ceramic glass surface, permanently damaging the cooktop surface.
