Care and cleaning of the range.

Lift the door straight up and off the hinges.

The gasket is designed with a gap at the bottom to allow for proper air circulation.

Do not rub or clean the door gasket— it has an extremely low resistance

to abrasion.

If you notice the gasket becoming worn, frayed or damaged in any way or if it has become displaced on the door, you should have it replaced.

Lift-OffOven Door

The oven door is removable, but it is heavy. You may need help removing and replacing the door.

To remove the door, open it a few inches to the special stop position that will hold the door open. Grasp firmly on each side and lift the door straight up and off the hinges.

NOTE: Be careful not to place hands between the hinge and the oven door frame as the hinge could snap back and pinch fingers.

To replace the door, make sure the hinges are in the special stop position. Position the slots in the bottom of the door squarely over the hinges. Then lower the door slowly and evenly over both hinges at the same time. If the hinges snap back against the oven frame, pull them back out.

To clean the inside of the door:

Do not allow excess water to run into any holes or slots in the door.

Because the area inside the gasket is cleaned during the self clean cycle, you do not need to clean this by hand. Any soap left on the liner causes additional stains when the oven is heated.

The area outside the gasket can be cleaned with a soap-filledscouring pad.

To clean the outside of the door:

Use soap and water to thoroughly clean the top, sides and front of the oven door. Rinse well. You may also use a glass cleaner to clean the glass on the outside of the door.

Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato sauces and basting materials containing acids may cause discoloration and should be wiped up immediately. When the surface is cool, clean and rinse.

Do not use oven cleaners, cleansing powders or harsh abrasives on the outside of the door.

Oven Bottom

The oven bottom has a porcelain enamel finish. To make cleaning easier, protect the oven bottom from excessive spillovers by placing a cookie sheet on the shelf below the shelf you are cooking on. This is particularly important when baking a fruit pie or other foods with a high acid content. Hot fruit fillings or other foods that are highly acidic (such as tomatoes, sauerkraut, and sauces with vinegar or lemon juice) may cause pitting and damage to the porcelain enamel surface and should be wiped up immediately.

We don’t recommend using aluminum foil on the oven bottom. It can affect air flow if the holes are blocked and it can concentrate heat at the bottom of the oven, resulting in poor baking performance.

To clean up spillovers, use soap and water, an abrasive cleaner or soap-filledscouring pad. Rinse well to remove any soap beforeself-cleaning.




Broiler Pan and Grid

After broiling, remove the broiler pan from the oven. Remove the grid from the pan. Carefully pour out grease from the pan into a proper container. Wash and rinse the broiler pan and grid in hot water

with a soap-filledor plastic scouring pad.

If food has burned on, sprinkle the grid with detergent while hot and cover with wet paper towels or a dishcloth. Soaking the pan will remove burned-onfoods.

The broiler pan and grid may be cleaned with a commercial oven cleaner.

Both the broiler pan and grid can also be cleaned in a dishwasher.

Do not store a soiled broiler pan and grid anywhere in the range.

CAUTION: Do not clean the broiler pan or grid in aself-cleaningoven.

replacing them.

Some models have dual support rods that will hold the cooktop up while you clean underneath it.

NOTE: Do not lift the cooktop on sealed burner models. Lifting the cooktop can lead to damage and improper operation of the range.

To raise the cooktop:

Be sure the burners are turned off.

Remove the grates.

Grasp the two front burner wells and lift up.

After cleaning, lower the cooktop (be careful not to pinch your fingers).

Removable Kick Panel (on some models)

The kick panel may be removed for cleaning under the range.

To remove:

Lift up the bottom of the panel slightly to disengage the panel from the tabs at the base of the range. Pull the bottom of the panel forward until the spring clips are released at the top of the panel.

To replace:

Insert the two slots at the bottom of the panel onto the two tabs at the base of the range, and push the top of the panel forward to engage the spring clips.

The storage drawer may be removed for cleaning under the range.

Removable Storage Drawer (on some models)

The storage drawer is a good place to store cookware and bakeware. Do not store plastics and flammable material in the drawer.

The storage drawer may be removed for cleaning under the range. Clean the storage drawer with a damp cloth or sponge. Never use harsh abrasives or scouring pads.

To remove storage drawer:

Pull drawer straight out until it stops.

Tilt the front of the drawer up and free of the range.

To replace storage drawer:

Set the stops on the back of the drawer over the stops in the range.

Slide drawer evenly and straight back, so that the rails in the range are engaged.

Care and cleaning of the range.

Oven Air Vents

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.

Vent appearance and location vary.

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 storage drawer or kick panel (depending on the model).

Lower Control Panel (Front Manifold Panel) and Knobs

Pull the knob straight off the stem.

It’s a good idea to wipe the control panel after each use of the oven. Use a damp cloth to clean or rinse. For cleaning, use mild soap and water or a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water. For rinsing, use clean water. Polish dry with a soft cloth.

Do not use abrasive cleansers, strong liquid cleaners, plastic scouring pads or oven cleaners on the control panel—theywill damage the finish.

Do not bend knobs by pulling them up or down or by hanging a towel or other such loads. This can damage the gas valve shaft.

The control knobs may be removed for easier cleaning. To remove a knob, pull it straight off the stem. If knob is difficult to remove, place a towel or dishcloth between the knob and control panel and pull gently. Wash the knobs in soap and water or a vinegar and hot water solution.

Metal parts can be cleaned with soap and water. Do not use steel wool, abrasives, ammonia, acids or commercial oven cleaners. Dry with a soft cloth.

Oven Light Replacement

CAUTION: Before replacing your oven light bulb, disconnect the electrical power to the range at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel. Be sure to let the light cover and bulb cool completely.

The oven light bulb is covered with a removable glass cover that is held in place with a bail-shapedwire. Remove the oven door, if desired, to reach cover easily.

To remove:

Hold a hand under the cover so it doesn’t fall when released. With fingers of the same hand, firmly push back the wire cover holder. Lift off the cover.

Do not remove any screws to remove the cover.

Do not touch hot bulb with a wet cloth. Replace bulb with a 40-watthousehold appliance bulb.

To replace cover:

Place it into the groove of the light receptacle. Pull the wire forward to the center of the cover until it snaps into place. When in place, the wire holds the cover firmly. Be certain the wire

is in the depression in the center of the cover.

Connect electrical power to the range.
