Important Safety Instructions

WARNING

Do not use stove top grills on your 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.

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

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 over adjacent surface burners.

Never Leave Surface Burners Unattended at

High Heat Settings—Boiloverscause 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. Protective liners or aluminum foil may interfere with heat and air distribution, and combustion. Damage to the cooktop or personal injury may result.

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

Do Not Use Decorative Surface Burner Covers. If a burner is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover will become hot and possibly melt. You will not be able to see that the burner is on. 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.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN

Use Care When Opening Oven Door or Warm & Serve Drawer (if equipped)—Stand to the side

of the appliance when opening the door/drawer of a hot appliance. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or replace food in the oven/drawer.

Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven is vented at the center 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.

WARNING

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/Warm & Serve Drawer (if equipped) racks in desired location while appliance is cool. Remove all utensils from the rack before removing rack. If rack must be moved while oven is hot, use extreme caution. Use pot holders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let pot holders contact the hot oven burner or interior of the oven.

Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. Broiler pan and grid allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler.

BEFORE Setting surface BURNER controls

Before Setting Surface Burner Controls

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.

The standard burner can be used for most surface cooking needs. The standard burner is located at the left front position on the cooktop.

The Oval burner is best suited when using rectangular or long shaped cookware. The oval burner is located at the center position on the cooktop.

The power burner is best used for bringing large quantities of liquid rapidly up to temperature or when preparing larger quantities of food. The POWER burners are located at the right front and left rear burner positions on the cooktop.

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.

2.Push the surface control knob down and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF position.

Figure 1

3.Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position.

Note: All five 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.)

CAUTION

Donotoperatetheburnerforanextendedperiodof time without cookware on the grate. The finish on the grate may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.

CAUTION

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. Pot holders, towels or wood spoons could catch fire if placed too close to a flame.

IMPORTANT

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 surface controls

Setting proper surface burner flame size

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.

Correct

Incorrect

IMPORTANT

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.

NOTE

*Note: Settings are based on using mediumweight metal 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. Clean burner if flame is yellow-orange.
