IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING

NEVER use this appliance as a space heater to heat or warm the room. Doing so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning.

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.

Stepping, leaning or sitting on the door or drawers of a range can result in serious injuries and also cause damage to the appliance. DO NOT allow children to climb or play around the range. The weight of a child on an open oven door may cause the range to tip, resulting in serious burns or other injury.

Storage in or on appliance—flammablematerials should not be stored in an 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.

DONOTLEAVECHILDRENALONE—childrenshouldnot 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, including the storage drawer, lower broiler drawer, warmer drawer or lower double oven.

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.

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

•User servicing—Donot repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the manuals.All other servicing should be done only by a qualified technician, This may reduce the risk of personal injury and damage to the range.

IMPORTANT

For electric ignition models only: 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.

CAUTION

DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE BURNERS, AREAS NEAR THESEBURNERS,OVENBURNERSORINTERIOR SURFACES OF THE OVEN. Both surface 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 cook top, surfaces facing the cook top, 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— smother the fire with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-typeextinguisher.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR COOKTOP

WARNING

Use Proper Flame Size—Adjustflame 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.

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 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.

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—Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.

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.

Air curtain or other overhead range hoods, which operate by blowing a downward air flow on to a range, shall not be used in conjunction with gas ranges other than when the hood and range have been designed, tested and listed by an independent test laboratory for use in combination with each other.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN

Use care when opening oven door , warmer drawer or lower oven door—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 below the backguard. 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.

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.

flat oven rack

half oven rack

offset oven rack

bottom oven rack

The flat oven rackor flat handle oven rack(some models) may be used for most cooking needs. The half rack(some models) design comes with a removable section that allows for taller cooking utensils. The offset oven rack(some models) is designed to place the base of the rack about 1/2 of a rack position lower than normal. This rack design provides several additional possible positions between the standard positions. To maximize oven cooking space place the bottom oven rack(some models) in the lowest rack position for baking or roasting large cuts of meat. The Effortless™ Oven Rack(some models) is described later in this section.

Air circulation in the oven

For best 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. Hot air must be able to circulate around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat to reach around the food.

Baking layer cakes with 1 or 2 oven racks

For best results when baking cakes using 2 oven racks, place cookware on rack positions 2 & 5 (See Figs. 2 & 3). For best results when using a single oven flat rack, place cookware on rack positions 2, 3 or 4 (See Figs. 2 &4).

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.

BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS

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 6. Do not attempt to use the Effortless™ Oven rack in rack position 1.

recommendations below as a guide for determining proper

 

 

flame size for various types of cooking (Fig. 2)

 

 

CAUTION

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 range cooktop.

IMPORTANT

Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt they may damage the cooktop.

NOTE

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

Cookware material types

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).

Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily.

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.

Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material.

Glass - Slow heat conductor.

For deep fat frying; use a thermometer and adjust the surface 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 or cook properly.

FlameSize*

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.

*These settings are based for medium-weightmetal or aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using other types of pans.

Fig. 2

CAUTION

Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the cooking utensil. A higher flame wastes energy, and increases your risk of being burned by the flame (Fig. 3).

Setting surface controls

Your gas range is equipped with many different sized surface burners. The ability to heat food quicker and in

larger volumes increases as the burner

size increases.

Fig. 1

It is important to select cookware that is suitable for the amount and type of food being prepared. Select a burner and flame size appropriate for the cookware size. The smaller simmer burners (some models) are best suited for simmering delicate sauces, etc. The standard size (9,500 BTU) burners may be used for most surface cooking needs.

Setting surface burners

1.Place cooking utensil on top of surface burner grate. Make sure the cooking untensil is centered and stable on the grate.

2.Push the desired surface control knob in and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF position (Fig. 1).

3.Release the knob and rotate to the lite position. Visually check that the gas burner has lit.

4.Turn the knob counterclockwise to the desired flame size. Use the control knob markings and adjust the flame as needed.

Setting the powerplus boil burner

The right front large powerplus boil burner (some models) provides asimmer burner in the middle and allows the user to add a larger outer burner combination best suited for heating larger quantities of food. When operating thetwin burner follow the procedure above and read notes below.

At the lite position only the simmer portion of the powerplus burner will ignite. Once the simmer portion has lit continue to turn the powerplus burner knob counterclockwise tohi for a combination of both burners. If just the simmer portion is needed turn the knob to about the 2 or 3 position and adjust the simmer flame size as needed.

CAUTION

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 range cooktop.

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS

IMPORTANT

DO NOT cook with the surface control knob left in the LITE position. The electronic ignitor will continue to spark if the control knob is left in the LITE position. When setting any surface control knob to the LITE position, all electronic ignitors will spark at the same time. However, only the surface burner you are setting will ignite.

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 push in and turn knob to desired setting. Use caution when lighting surface burners manually.

Seasoning, using and caring for the griddle

Before first use:

Wash griddle in hot soapy water. Rinse and dry completely.

Apply a thin coat of vegetable oil to the entire surface (front and back of griddle).

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Place the griddle on the upper rack in your oven.

Bake griddle for 1 hour at 350°F, then turn oven OFF and let cool before removing.

The surface may appear to have a tacky feel to it from the seasoning process. If desired, wash the griddle in hot soapy water, rinse well, and dry completely.

Using the griddle:

Remove the center burner grate and carefully replace with the griddle (some models). Preheat the griddle for 5 minutes on medium to medium low setting. Slow preheat ensures even heat distribution during the cooking process. DO NOT preheat the griddle on HI setting. Preheating on HI may warp the griddle and prevent even heat distribution.

After each use:

To prevent rusting, store in a dry place and keep uncovered.

After each use, clean with a stiff brush and hot water only.

Do not clean griddle in the dishwasher.

Dry Immediately and apply a light coating of vegetable oil to griddle before storing.

Home Canning

Be sure to read and observe all the following points when home canning with your appliance. Check with the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) website and be sure to read all the information they have available as well as follow their recommendations for canning procedures.

Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning. Use a straight-edgeto check canner bottom (see “Cookware material types” in theBefore setting surface controls section).

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.

Convect (all models)

Benefits of the convect features

Foods may cook up to 25 to 30% faster, saving time and energy.

Multiple rack baking.

No special pans or bakeware needed.

Convect 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. Breads and pastry brown more evenly. Layer cakes will have better results using the bake pad.

Most foods baked in a standard oven can be cooked faster and more evenly with the convect feature.

Suggestions for convect baking

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

2.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.

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

Convect bake (all models)

Convect roast (all models)

Meats cooked with convect roast will be juicer and poultry will be crisp on the outside while staying tender and moist on the inside.

NOTE

When choosing between the convect features, use the convect key pad totoggle between the convect bake orconvect roast choices.

Suggestion for convect roasting

1.Preheating is not necessary when roasting foods using convect roast.

2.Since convect roast 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.

3.Do not cover foods when dry roasting - this will prevent the meat from browning properly.

To set convect roast (convection roast) with a default oven set temperature of 350°F:

Step

Press

1.Press convect.

2.Press convect again.

3.Press start (See Fig. 3).

To set convect using default oven set temperature of 350°F and adding the convect convert:

Step

Press

1.Press convect.

2.Press convect convert.

IMPORTANT

When convect convert is used with a bake time or adelay start setting, the convect convert feature will display a "CF" forcheck food when the bake time is 75% complete (See Fig. 1).

Self-cleaning

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

Your oven allows you to set 3 different self-cleaningcycle durations. A3-hourcleaning time is best used for normal cleaning;2-hourtime for light soils and a4-hourtime option for heavierburnt-onsoils.

IMPORTANT

Adhere to the following self-cleanprecautions:

DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any part of the oven interior.

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 (See Fig. 1).

Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils andANYALUMINUMFOIL.Theseitemscannot withstand high cleaning temperatures and will melt.

Completely remove ALL OVEN RACKS and ANY ACCESSORIES. If the oven racks are not removed they will loose their special coating properties and no longer slide in and out of the oven cavity effortlessly.

Remove any excessive spillovers. Any spills on the oven bottom should be wiped-up and removed before startingthe 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. These areas are shown in white (See Fig. 1).

SELF-CLEANING

CAUTION

During the self-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 the self-cleaningcycle of any range. Move birds to anotherwell-ventilatedroom.

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 beVERY HOT.
