WARNING!

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 birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.

Gas appliances can cause minor exposure to four of these substances, namely benzene, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and soot, caused primarily by the incomplete combustion of natural gas or LP fuels. Properly adjusted burners, indicated by a bluish rather than a yellow flame, will minimize incomplete combustion. Exposure to these substances can be minimized by venting with an open window or using a ventilation fan or hood.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Have the installer show you the location of the range gas shut-offvalve and how to shut it off if necessary.

Have your range installed and properly grounded by a qualified installer, in accordance with the Installation Instructions. Any adjustment and service should be performed only by qualified gas range installers or service technicians.

Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of your range unless it is specifically recommended in this manual. All other service should be referred to a qualified technician.

Plug your range into a 120-voltgrounded outlet only. Do not remove the round grounding prong from the plug. If in doubt about the grounding of the home electrical system, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have an ungrounded outlet replaced with a properly grounded,three-prongoutlet in accordance with

the National Electrical Code. Do not use an extension cord with this appliance.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Locate the range out of kitchen traffic path and out of drafty locations to prevent poor air circulation.

Be sure all packaging materials are removed from the range before operating it to prevent fire or smoke damage should the packaging material ignite.

Be sure your range is correctly adjusted by a qualified service technician or installer for the type of gas (natural or LP) that is to be used. Your range can be converted for use with either type of gas. See the Installation of the range section.

WARNING: These adjustments must be made by a qualified service technician in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and all codes and requirements of the authority having jurisdiction. Failure to follow these instructions could result in serious injury or property damage. The qualified agency performing this work assumes responsibility for the conversion.

After prolonged use of a range, high floor temperatures may result and many floor coverings will not withstand this kind of use. Never install the range over vinyl tile or linoleum that cannot withstand such type of use. Never install it directly over interior kitchen carpeting.

Do not leave children alone or unattended where a range is hot or in operation. They could be seriously burned.

Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on the oven door, storage drawer, warming drawer or cooktop. They could damage the range and even tip it over, causing severe personal injury.

CAUTION: Items of interest to children should not be stored in cabinets above a range or on the backsplash of arange—childrenclimbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.

WARNING:NEVER use this

appliance as a space heater to heat or warm the room. Doing so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning and

overheating of the oven.

4

Never wear loose fitting or hanging garments while using the appliance. Be careful when reaching for items stored in cabinets over the range. Flammable material could be ignited if brought in contact with flame or hot oven surfaces and may cause severe burns.

Do not store flammable materials in an oven, a range storage drawer, a warming drawer or near a cooktop.

Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

Do not let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate in or near the range.

Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up a flaming pan. Turn the controls off. Smother a flaming pan on a surface burner by covering the pan completely with a well-fittinglid, cookie sheet or flat tray.

Use a multi-purposedry chemical orfoam-typefire extinguisher.

Flaming grease outside a pan can be put out by covering it with baking soda or, if available, by using a multi-purposedry chemical orfoam-typefire extinguisher.

Flame in the oven can be smothered completely by closing the oven door and turning the control to off or by using a multi-purposedry chemical orfoam-typefire extinguisher.

Let the burner grates and other surfaces cool before touching them or leaving them where children can reach them.

Never block the vents (air openings) of the range. They provide the air inlet and outlet that are necessary for the range to operate properly with correct combustion. Air openings are located at the rear of the cooktop, at the top and bottom of the oven door, and at the bottom of the range under the kick panel or storage drawer.

Large scratches or impacts to glass doors can lead to broken or shattered glass.

WARNING!

SURFACE BURNERS

Use proper pan size—avoidpans that are unstable or easily tipped. Select cookware having flat bottoms large enough to cover burner grates. To avoid spillovers, make sure cookware is large enough to contain the food properly. This will both save cleaning time and prevent hazardous accumulations of food, since heavy spattering or spillovers left on range can ignite. Use pans with handles that can be easily grasped and remain cool.

Always use the LITE position when igniting the top burners and make sure the burners have ignited.

Never leave the surface burners unattended at high flame settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.

Adjust the top burner flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the cookware. Excessive flame is hazardous.

Use only dry pot holders—moistor damp pot holders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let pot holders come near open flames when lifting cookware. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth in place of a pot holder.

When using glass cookware, make sure it is designed for top-of-rangecooking.

To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage, turn cookware handles toward the side or back of the range without extending over adjacent burners.

Carefully watch foods being fried at a high flame setting.

Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.

Do not leave any items on the cooktop. The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable items and will increase pressure in closed containers, which may cause them to burst.

If a combination of oils or fats will be used in frying, stir together before heating or as fats melt slowly.

Use a deep fat thermometer whenever possible to prevent overheating fat beyond the smoking point.

Use the least possible amount of fat for effective shallow or deep-fatfrying. Filling the pan too full of fat can cause spillovers when food is added.

When flaming foods are under the hood, turn the fan off. The fan, if operating, may spread the flames.

Do not use a wok on the cooking surface if the wok has a round metal ring that is placed over the burner grate to support the wok. This ring acts as a heat trap, which may damage the burner grate and burner head. Also, it may cause the burner to work improperly. This may cause a carbon monoxide level above that allowed by current standards, resulting

in a health hazard.

Foods for frying should be as dry as possible. Frost on frozen foods or moisture on fresh foods can cause hot fat to bubble up and over the sides of the pan.

Never try to move a pan of hot fat, especially a deep fat fryer. Wait until the fat is cool.

Do not leave plastic items on the cooktop— they may melt if left too close to the vent.

Keep all plastics away from the surface burners.

To avoid the possibility of a burn, always be certain that the controls for all burners are at the OFF position and all grates are cool before attempting to remove them.

If range is located near a window, do not hang long curtains that could blow over the surface burners and create a fire hazard.

If you smell gas, turn off the gas to the range and call a qualified service technician. Never use an open flame to locate a leak.

Always turn the surface burner controls off before removing cookware.

Do not lift the cooktop on sealed burner models. Lifting the cooktop can lead

to damage and improper operation of the range.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.

COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY…

Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meatto at least an INTERNAL temperature of 160°F and poultry to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 180°F. Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against foodborne illness.

OVEN

Stand away from the range when opening the door of a hot oven. The hot air and steam that escape can cause burns to hands, face and eyes.

Do not use the oven for a storage area. Items stored in the oven can ignite.

Keep the oven free from grease buildup.

Place the oven shelves in the desired position while the oven is cool.

Pulling out the shelf to the stop-lockis a convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also a precaution against burns from touching hot surfaces of the door or oven walls. The lowest position is not designed to slide.

Do not heat unopened food containers. Pressure could build up and the container could burst, causing an injury.

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 also trap heat, causing a fire hazard.

Do not use aluminum foil anywhere in the oven except as described in this manual. Misuse could result in a fire hazard or damage to the range.

When using cooking or roasting bags in the oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.

Do not use your oven to dry newspapers. If overheated, they can catch fire.

Use only glass cookware that is recommended for use in gas ovens.

Always remove the broiler pan from range as soon as you finish broiling. Grease left in the pan can catch fire if oven is used without removing the grease from the broiler pan.

When broiling, if meat is too close to the flame, the fat may ignite. Trim excess fat to prevent excessive flare-ups.

Make sure the broiler pan is in place correctly to reduce the possibility of grease fires.

If you should have a grease fire in the broiler pan, touch the CLEAR/OFF pad, and keep the oven door closed to contain fire until

it burns out.

For safety and proper cooking performance, always bake and broil with the oven door closed.

SELF-CLEANINGOVEN

Be sure to wipe off excess spillage before self-cleaningoperation.

Before self-cleaningthe oven, remove the shelves, broiler pan, grid and other cookware.

Do not clean the door gasket. The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or move the gasket.

Clean only parts listed in this Owner’s Manual.

If the self-cleaningmode malfunctions, turn the oven off and disconnect the power supply. Have it serviced by a qualified technician.

Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial oven cleaner or oven liner of any kind should be used in or around any part of the oven. Residue from oven cleaners will damage the inside of the oven when the self-cleancycle is used.

READ AND FOLLOW THIS SAFETY INFORMATION CAREFULLY.

Using the gas surface burners.

Throughout this manual, features and appearance may vary from your model.

Before Lighting a Gas Burner

Drip pans are supplied with your range; they should be used at all times.

Make sure all burners are in place.

Make sure all grates on the range are properly placed before using any burner.

After Lighting a Gas Burner

Do not operate the burner for an extended period of time without cookware on the grate. The finish on the grate may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.

Be sure the burners and grates are cool before you place your hand, a pot holder, cleaning cloths or other materials

on them.

Push the control knob in and turn it to the LITE position.

How to Light a Gas Surface Burner

Make sure all the surface burners are placed in their respective positions.

Push the control knob in and turn it to the LITE position.

You will hear a little clicking noise— the sound of the electric spark igniting the burner.

Turn the knob to adjust the flame size. If the knob stays at LITE, it will continue to click.

When one burner is turned to LITE,

all the burners spark. Do not attempt to disassemble or clean around any burner while another burner is on. An electric shock may result, which could cause you to knock over hot cookware.

Sealed Gas Burners

Your gas range cooktop has four sealed gas burners. They offer convenience and flexibility to be used in a wide range of cooking applications.

The smallest burner in the right rear position is the simmer burner. This burner can be turned down to a very low simmer setting. It provides precise cooking performance for delicate foods such as sauces or foods that require low heat for

a long cooking time.

The medium (left rear and, on some models, left front) and the large (right front and, on some models, left front) burners are the primary burners for most cooking. These general-purposeburners can be turned down fromHI toLO to suit a wide range of cooking needs.

NOTE: On some models, the burners are all the same size and power.

Top-of-RangeCookware

Aluminum: Medium-weightcookware is recommended because it heats quickly and evenly. Most foods brown evenly in an aluminum skillet. Use saucepans with tightfitting lids when cooking with minimum amounts of water.

Cast-Iron: If heated slowly, most skillets will give satisfactory results.

Enamelware: Under some conditions, the enamel of some cookware may melt. Follow cookware manufacturer’s recommendations for cooking methods.

Glass: There are two types of glasscookware—thosefor oven use only and those fortop-of-rangecooking (saucepans, coffee and teapots). Glass conducts heat very slowly.

Heatproof Glass Ceramic: Can be used for either surface or oven cooking. It conducts heat very slowly and cools very slowly. Check cookware manufacturer’s directions to be sure it can be used on gas ranges.

Stainless Steel: This metal alone has poor heating properties and is usually combined with copper, aluminum or other metals for improved heat distribution. Combination metal skillets usually work satisfactorily if they are used with medium heat as the manufacturer recommends.

Stove Top Grills (on models with sealed burners)

Do not use stove top grills on your sealed gas burners. If you use the stove top grill on the 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.

Using the oven.

To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the desired position before you turn the oven on.

The oven has 5 shelf positions.

It also has a special low shelf position (R) for extra large items, such as a large turkey.

Before you begin…

The shelves have stop-locks,so that when placed correctly on the shelf supports (A through E), they will stop before coming completely out, and will not tilt.

When placing and removing cookware, pull the shelf out to the bump on the shelf support.

To remove a shelf, pull it toward you, tilt the front end up and pull it out.

To replace, place the end of the shelf(stop-locks)on the support, tilt up the front and push the shelf in.

NOTE: The shelf is not designed to slide out at the special low shelf (R) position.

Plastic items on the cooktop may melt if left too close to the vent.

Vent appearance and location vary.

Oven Vent

Your oven is vented through ducts at the rear of the range. Do not block these ducts when cooking in the oven—itis important that the flow of hot air from the oven

and fresh air to the oven burner be uninterrupted. Avoid touching the vent openings or nearby surfaces during oven or broiler operation—theymay become hot.

Handles of pots and pans on the cooktop may become hot if left too close to the vent.

Do not leave plastic or flammable items on the cooktop—theymay melt or ignite if left too close to the vent.

Do not leave closed containers on the cooktop. The pressure in closed containers may increase, which may cause them to burst.

Metal items will become very hot if they are left on the cooktop, and could cause burns.

Power Outage

CAUTION: Do not make any attempt to operate the electric ignition oven during an electrical power failure.

The oven or broiler cannot be lit during a power failure. Gas will not flow unless the glow bar is hot.

If the oven is in use when a power failure occurs, the oven burner shuts off and cannot be re-lituntil power is restored. This is because the flow of gas is automatically stopped and will not resume when power is restored until the glow bar has reached operating temperature.

Oven Light

Touch the OVEN LIGHT orpad on the upper control panel to turn the light on or off.
