IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR COOK TOP

•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 Units—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 Units 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.

FOR COIL COOK TOP MODELS

•Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place—Absence of these pans or bowls during cooking may subject wiring or components underneath to damage.

•Protective Liners—Donot use aluminum foil to line surface unit drip bowls, or reflector pans. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or fire. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or fire.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN

•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. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or fire.

IMPORTANTINSTRUCTIONSFORCLEANINGYOUR RANGE

•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.

SELF CLEANING OVENS

•Clean in the self-cleaningcycle only the parts listed in this Owner’s Guide.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.

To Operate the Warmer Drawer

Your range is equipped with a warmer drawer. The purpose of the warmer drawer is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food in the warmer drawer.

All food placed in the warmer drawer should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain quality. Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the drawer and be very difficult to clean.

Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven use in the warmer drawer.

Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from the warmer drawer as cookware and plates will be hot.

To Set the Warmer Drawer Thermostat Control

The thermostat control is used to select the temperature of the warmer drawer. It is located on the control panel. To set the thermostat, push in and turn the knob to the desired setting. The temperatures are approximate, and are designated by HI, MED and LO.

1.Turn the knob to select the desired temperature setting.

2.For best results, preheat the drawer before adding food. An empty drawer will preheat in approximately 15 minutes.

3.Turn the thermostat control to OFF after use.

Temperature Selection

Refer to the chart in the side column for recommended settings. If a particular food is not listed, start with the medium setting. If more crispness is desired, remove the lid or aluminum foil.

Most foods can be kept at serving temperatures by using the medium setting.

When a combination of foods are to be kept warm (for instance, a meat with 2 vegetables and rolls), use the high setting.

Refrain from opening the warmer drawer while in use to eliminate loss of heat from the drawer.

Indicator Light

The indicator light is located below the thermostat control. It turns on when the control is set, and stays on until the control is turned off. The warmer drawer is inoperable during the self-cleancycle. The indicator light will not come on during theself-cleancycle.

Speed Bake™ Cooking System - (If equipped)

Speed Bake™ Cooking System 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 Speed Bake™ Cooking System 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 withSpeed Bake™ Cooking System.

General Cooking Instructions:

1.To convert baking times for normal recipes to Speed Bake times, start with a 30% reduction in time and increase the time until the desired doneness is obtained. Time reductions will vary depending on the amount and type of food.

2.Preheating is not necessary when cooking with Speed Bake, except with items such as cakes, cookies, biscuits, breads, etc.

3.When using two racks at

the same time, place in positions 2 and 5 for the best results.

4. When baking cakes with

S p e e d B a k e , s e t temperature 25F° (13°C) degrees lower than the recommended setting for best results.

To Set Speed Bake™ Cooking System:

General Cleaning - Coil

Element Models

Be sure the range is cool before removing elements or drip bowls. Be careful not to bend terminal ends when replacing elements after cleaning.

Surface Elements and Drip Bowls

Surface elements can be unplugged and removed to make cleaning the drip pans easier. The surface elements clean themselves when they are turned on. Food spilled on a hot element will burn off. Food spilled on a cool element may be cleaned with a damp cloth—anyremaining soil will burn off the next time the element is used.

Never immerse a surface element in water.

To Remove the Surface Elements and Drip Bowls

1.Lift the edge of the drip bowl across from the terminal end. Lift the surface element and drip bowl together just enough to clear the cooktop.

2.While holding the drip bowl and surface element, gently pull the terminal end out from the terminal plug. If equipped, DO NOT remove the hold down clip from the drip bowl.

To Clean Drip Bowls

Wash in hot, soapy water or in the dishwasher. Rinse and dry while still warm. Hard to remove, burned on soil can be removed by soaking the drip bowls for about 20 minutes in a lightly diluted liquid cleanser or a solution of ammonia and water (1/2 cup ammonia to 1 gallon of water). A nylon scrubber may be used after soaking. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or steel wool, as they will scratch the surface. Always rinse with clean water and polish dry with a soft cloth.

To Replace Drip Bowls and Surface Elements

1.Slide the terminal end on the element through the opening in the drip bowl.

2.Align the element support to rest on the rim inside the drip bowl. If your drip bowl is equipped with a hold down clip, align the element support opposite the terminal end with the slot in the hold down clip, and snap into place.

3.After the element is positioned in the drip bowl, line up the terminal end with the terminal plug as shown.

4.Hold the surface element and drip bowl together as level as possible and firmly push the terminal end into the terminal plug. Make sure element terminal is seated properly into terminal plug. Make sure the surface element is level to reduce the hazard of pans sliding off the element.

To Raise the Top for Cleaning

1.Grasp the sides and lift from the front. Lift-uprods will support the top in its raised position. Only lift the top high enough to allow the support rods to snap into place.

2.Clean underneath using a clean cloth and hot, soapy water.

3.To lower the top, gently push back on each rod to release the notched support. Hold the range top and slide the range top down into the range frame.

6.The clock(if equipped) will then need to be reset. To reset, see Setting the Clock and Minute Timer in this Owner's Guide.

The temperature in the oven has been set at the factory. When first using the oven, be sure to follow recipe times and temperatures. If you think the oven is too hot or too cool, the temperature in the oven can be adjusted. Before adjusting, test a recipe by using a temperature setting that is higher or lower than the recommended temperature. The baking results should help you to decide how much of an adjustment is needed.

To Adjust Oven Temperature

1.Push .

2.Set the temperature to 550°F (287°C) by pushing and holding the .

3.Within 2 seconds, push and holduntil the special 2 digit display
