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.

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.

12

www.GEAppliances.com

Do not lock the oven door with the latch during baking or roasting. The latch is used for self-cleaningonly.

The oven has a special low shelf (R) position just above the oven bottom. Use it when extra cooking space is needed, for example, when cooking a large turkey. The shelf is not designed to slide out at this position.

How to Set the Oven for Baking or Roasting

Your oven is not designed for open-doorcooking.

Touch the BAKE pad.

Touch the + orpads until the desired temperature is displayed.

Touch the START/ON pad.

The oven will start automatically. The display will show PRE while preheating. When the oven reaches the selected temperature, the oven control will beep several times and the display will show the oven temperature.

To change the oven temperature during BAKE cycle, touch the BAKE pad and then the+ orpads to get the new temperature.

Check food for doneness at minimum time on recipe. Cook longer if necessary.

Preheating and Pan Placement

Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it. To preheat, set the oven at the correct temperature. Preheating is necessary for good results when baking cakes, cookies, pastry and breads.

For ovens without a preheat indicator light or tone, preheat 10 minutes.

Baking results will be better if baking pans are centered in the oven as much as possible. Pans should not touch each other or the walls of the oven. If you need to use two shelves, stagger the pans so one is not directly above the other, and leave approximately 112between pans, from the front, back and sides of the wall.

grid and cut slits in it just like the grid.

Aluminum foil may also be used to catch a spillover. To do so, place a small sheet of foil on a lower shelf several inches below the food.

Never entirely cover a shelf with aluminum foil. This will disturb the heat circulation and result in poor baking.

Oven Moisture

As your oven heats up, the temperature change of the air in the oven may cause water droplets to form on the door glass. These droplets are harmless and will evaporate as the oven continues to heat up.

Do not lock the oven door with the latch during broiling. The latch is used for self-cleaningonly.

How to Set the Oven for Broiling

Always use the broiler pan and grid that came with your oven. It is designed to minimize smoking and spattering by trapping juices in the shielded lower part of the pan.

Place the meat or fish on the broiler grid in the broiler pan.

Follow suggested shelf positions in the

Broiling Guide.

The oven door must be closed during broiling.

Touch the BROIL HI/LO pad once for

Adjust the oven thermostat—Doit yourself!

www.GEAppliances.com

You may find that your new oven cooks differently than the one it replaced. Use your new oven for a few weeks to become more familiar with it. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the thermostat yourself.

Do not use thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores, to check the temperature setting of your oven. These thermometers may vary 20–40degrees.

NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling or theself-cleaningtemperatures. The adjustment will be retained in memory after a power failure.

To Adjust the Thermostat

Touch the BAKEand BROIL HI/LOpads at the same time for 2 seconds until the display shows SF.

Touch the BAKE pad. A two digit number shows in the display.

The oven temperature can be adjusted up to (+) 35°F hotter or (–)35°F cooler. Touch the+ pad to increase the temperature in 1 degree increments.

Touch the pad to decrease the temperature in 1 degree increments.

When you have made the adjustment, touch the START/ON pad to go back to the time of day display. Use your oven as you would normally.

NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling orself-cleaningtemperatures. It will be retained in memory after a power failure.

The type of margarine will affect baking performance!

Most recipes for baking have been developed using high fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you decrease the fat, the recipe may not give the same results as with a higher fat product.

Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries, cookies or candies are made with low fat spreads. The lower the fat content of a spread product, the more noticeable these differences become.

Federal standards require products labeled “margarine” to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low fat spreads, on the other hand, contain less fat and more water. The high moisture content of these spreads affects the texture and flavor of baked goods. For best results with your old favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or stick spreads containing at least 70% vegetable oil.

Using the self-cleaningoven.

Never force the latch handle. Forcing the handle will damage the door lock mechanism. The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.

Wipe up heavy soil on the oven bottom.

Before a Clean Cycle

For the first self-cleancycle, we recommend venting your kitchen with an open window or using a ventilation fan or hood.

Remove the shelves, broiler pan, broiler grid, all cookware and any aluminum foil from the oven.

The oven shelves can be self-cleaned,but they will darken, lose their luster and become hard to slide.

Do not use commercial oven cleaners or oven protectors in or near the self-cleaningoven. A combination of any of these products plus the high clean cycle temperatures may damage the porcelain finish of the oven.

Soil on the front frame of the range and outside the gasket on the door will need to be cleaned by hand. Clean these areas with hot water, soap-filledscouring pads or cleansers such as Soft Scrub®.

Rinse well with clean water and dry.

Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass material of the oven door gasket cannot withstand abrasion. It is essential for the gasket to remain intact. If you notice it becoming worn or frayed, replace it.

Wipe up any heavy spillovers on the oven bottom.

Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in place and the oven light is off.

CAUTION: The grates and drip pans (on some models) should never be cleaned in theself-cleaningoven.

Do not use commercial oven cleaners or oven protectors in or near the self-cleaningoven.

A combination of any of these products plus the high clean cycle temperatures may damage the porcelain finish of the oven.

IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during theself-cleaningcycle of any range. Move birds to another well ventilated room.

Drip pan (on some models)

Surface burner

CAUTION: Do not operate the cooktop without all burner parts, drip pans (on some models) and grates in place.

Standard Twin Burner Assemblies (on some models)

For cleaning information on sealed burners,

see section on next page. Sealed burner cooktops do not lift up.

On models with standard twin burners, the cooktop lifts up for easy access.

Turn all controls OFF before removing burner parts and drip pans (if so equipped).

The burner grates and drip pans (if so equipped) can be lifted off, making them easy to clean.

The holes in the surface burners of your range must be kept clean at all times for proper ignition and an even, unhampered flame.

You should clean the surface burners routinely, especially after bad spillovers, which could clog these holes.

Wipe off surface burners. If heavy spillover occurs, remove the surface burners from the range. Burners lift out for cleaning. Lift up the cooktop and then lift out the surface burners.

To remove burned-onfood, soak the surface burner in a solution of mild liquid detergent and hot water. Soak the surface burner for 20 to 30 minutes.

For more stubborn stains, use a cleanser like Soft Scrub® brand or Bon Ami® brand. Rinse well to remove any traces of the cleanser that might clog the surface burner openings.

Do not use steel wool because it will clog the surface burner openings and scratch the surface burners. If the holes become clogged, clean them with a sewing needle or twist-tie.

Before putting the surface burner back, shake out excess water and then dry it thoroughly by setting it in a warm oven for 30 minutes. Then place it back in the range, making sure it is properly seated and level.

Check the flame pattern of each burner. If the flames are “jumpy” (not steady), clean the holes again with a sewing needle or twist-tie.

Clean these holes thoroughly on each burner.

Drip Pans (on some models)

Remove the grates and lift out the drip pans. Drip pans can be cleaned in a dishwasher or by hand.

When replacing the drip pans, make sure they are in the correct position.

Place them in a covered container. Add 1/4 cup ammonia and let soak several hours or overnight. Wash, rinse well and dry.

CAUTION: Do not clean the drip pans in aself-cleaningoven.

CAUTION: Do not operate the cooktop without all burner parts, drip pans (on some models) and grates in place.

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

Electrode

The electrode of the spark igniter is exposed when the burner head is removed. 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.

Burner Caps and Heads

NOTE: Before removing the burner caps

and heads, remember their size and location. Replace them in the same location after cleaning.

Burner caps

Lift off when cool. Wash burner caps in hot, soapy water and rinse with clean

water. You may scour with a plastic scouring pad to remove burned-onfood particles.

Burner heads

For proper ignition, make sure the small hole in the section that fits over the electrode is kept open. A sewing needle or wire twist-tieworks well to unclog it.

The slits in the burner heads must be kept clean at all times for an even, unhampered flame.

Clogged or dirty burner ports or electrodes will not allow the burner to operate properly.

Any spill on or around an electrode must be carefully cleaned. Take care to not hit an electrode with anything hard or it could

be damaged.

You should clean the burner caps and burner heads routinely, especially after bad spillovers, which could clog the openings in the burner heads. Lift off when cool.

To remove burned-onfood, soak the burner heads in a solution of mild liquid detergent and hot water for20–30minutes. For more stubborn stains, use a toothbrush.

After cleaning

Before putting the burner caps and heads back, shake out excess water and then dry them thoroughly by setting in a warm oven for 30 minutes.

NOTE: Do not use steel wool or scouring powders to clean the burners.

Burner Grates

Lift out when cool. Grates should be washed regularly and, of course, after spillovers. Wash them in hot, soapy water and rinse with clean water. When replacing the grates, be sure they are positioned securely over the burners.

On models with professional-styledouble grates, the grates areposition-specific.For maximum stability, these grates should only be used in their proper position; they cannot be interchanged left to right or front to back. For convenience, the undersides of the left and right grates are marked “LEFT FRONT” and “RIGHT FRONT.”

Do not operate a 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.

To get rid of burned-onfood, place the grates in a covered container. Add 1/4 cup ammonia and let them soak several hours or overnight. Wash, rinse well and dry.

Although they are durable, the grates will gradually lose their shine, regardless of the best care you can give them. This is due to their continual exposure to high temperatures. You will notice this sooner with lighter color grates.

NOTE: Do not clean the grates in aself-cleaningoven.

Cooktop Surface

To avoid damaging the porcelain enamel surface of the cooktop and to prevent it from becoming dull, clean up spills right away. Foods with a lot of acid (tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices, etc.) or foods with high sugar content could cause a dull spot if allowed to set.

When the surface has cooled, wash and rinse. For other spills such as fat spatterings, etc., wash with soap and water once the surface has cooled. Then rinse and polish with a dry cloth.

NOTE: Do not store flammable materials in an oven or near the cooktop. Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

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

Stainless Steel Surfaces (on some models)

Do not use a steel-woolpad; it will scratch the surface.

Shake bottle well.

Place a small amount of CERAMA BRYTE® Stainless Steel Appliance Cleaner on adamp cloth ordamp paper towel.

Clean a small area (approximately

8x 8), rubbing with the grain of the stainless steel if applicable.

Dry and buff with a clean, dry paper towel or soft cloth.

Repeat as necessary.

NOTE: If a mineraloil-basedstainless steel appliance cleaner has been used before to

clean the appliance, wash the surface with dish soap and water prior to using the CERAMA BRYTE® Stainless Steel Appliance Cleaner. After washing the surface with dish soap and water, use a generous amount of CERAMA BRYTE® Stainless Steel Appliance Cleaner to clean the appliance.

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.

Grid

Pan

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.

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.

WARNING!

ANTI-TIPDEVICE

All ranges can tip and injury could result.

To prevent accidental tipping of the range, attach an approved Anti-Tipdevice to the wall. (SeeInstalling the Anti-Tip Device in this section.) To check if the device is installed and engaged properly, carefully tip the range forward. TheAnti-Tipdevice should engage and prevent the range from tipping over.

If you pull the range out from the wall for any reason, make sure the Anti-Tipdevice is engaged when you push the range back against the wall.

For your safety, never use your range for warming or heating the room. Your oven and cooktop are not designed to heat your kitchen. Top burners should not be operated without cookware on the grate. Such abuse could result in fire and damage to your range and will void your warranty.

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

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

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

LOCATION

Do not locate the range where it may be subject to strong drafts. Any openings in the floor or wall behind the range should be sealed. Make sure the openings around the base of the range that supply fresh air for combustion and ventilation are not obstructed by carpeting or woodwork.

Your range, like many other household items, is heavy and can settle into soft floor coverings such as cushioned vinyl or carpeting. Use care when moving the range

on this type of flooring. It is recommended that the following simple and inexpensive instructions be followed to protect your floor.

The range should be installed on a sheet of plywood (or similar material). When the floor covering ends at the front of the range, the area that the range will rest on should be built up with plywood to the same level or higher than the floor covering.

This will allow the range to be moved for cleaning or servicing. Also, make sure your floor covering will

withstand 180°F. (See the Installation Safety Instructions section.)

Make sure the wall coverings around your range can withstand the heat generated (up to 200°F) by the range. (See the Installation Safety Instructions section.)

IMPORTANT!

Remove all tape and packaging. Make sure the burners are properly seated and level.

Lift up the cooktop (on models with standard twin burners) and remove any packing material under it.

Take the accessory pack out of the oven and/or drawer.

Check to be sure that no range parts have come loose during shipping.

35

Installation Instructions

1PROVIDE ADEQUATE GAS SUPPLY

Your range is designed to operate at a pressure of 4of water column on natural gas or, if designed for LP gas (propane or butane), 10of water column.

Make sure you are supplying your range with the type of gas for which it is designed.

This range is convertible for use on natural or propane gas. If you decide to use this range on LP gas, conversion must be made by a qualified LP installer before attempting to operate the range on that gas.

For proper operation, the pressure of natural gas supplied to the regulator must be between 4and 13of water column.

For LP gas, the pressure supplied must be between 10and 13of water column.

When checking for proper operation of the regulator, the inlet pressure must be at least 1greater than the operating (manifold) pressure as given above.

The pressure regulator located at the inlet of the range manifold must remain in the supply line regardless of whether natural or LP gas is being used.

A flexible metal appliance connector used to connect the range to the gas supply line should have an I.D. of 1/2and be 5 feet in length for ease of installation. In Canada, flexible connectors must be single wall metal connectors no longer than 6 feet in length.

2 CONNECT THE RANGE TO GAS

Shut off the main gas supply valve before disconnecting the old range and leave it off until the new hookup has been completed. Don’t forget to relight the pilot on other gas appliances when you turn the gas back on.

Because hard piping restricts movement of the range, the use of a CSA International-certifiedflexible metal appliance connector is recommended unless local codes require ahard-pipedconnection.

Never use an old connector when installing a new range. If the hard piping method is used, you must carefully align the pipe; the range cannot be moved after the connection is made.

To prevent gas leaks, put pipe joint compound on, or wrap pipe thread tape with Teflon* around, all male (external) pipe threads.

A.Install a manual gas line shut-offvalve in the gas line in an easily accessed location outside of the range. Make sure everyone operating the range knows where and how to shut off the gas supply to the range.

B.Install male 1/2flare union adapter to the 1/2NPT internal thread at inlet of regulator. Use a backup wrench on the regulator fitting to avoid damage.

B.When installing the range from the front, remove the 90° elbow for easier installation.

C.Install male 1/2or 3/4flare union adapter to the NPT internal thread of the manualshut-offvalve, taking care toback-uptheshut-offvalve to keep it from turning.

D.Connect flexible metal appliance connector to the adapter on the range. Position range to permit connection at the shut-offvalve.

E.When all connections have been made, make sure all range controls are in the off position and turn on the main gas supply valve. Use a liquid leak detector at all joints and connections to check for leaks in the system.

WARNING: DO NOT USE A FLAME TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.

When using test pressures greater than 1/2 psig to pressure test the gas supply system of the residence, disconnect the range and individual shut-offvalve from the gas supply piping. When using test pressures of 1/2 psig or less to test the gas supply system, simply isolate the range from the gas supply system by closing the individualshut-offvalve.

3 ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS

Electrical Requirements

120-volt,60 Hertz, properly grounded branch circuit protected by a15-ampor20-ampcircuit breaker or time delay fuse.

Extension Cord Cautions

Because of potential safety hazards associated with certain conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of

an extension cord. However, if you still elect to use an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed,3-wiregrounding-typeappliance extension cord and that the current carrying rating of the cord in amperes be equivalent to, or greater than, the branch circuit rating.

Grounding

IMPORTANT—(Pleaseread carefully)

FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE PROPERLY GROUNDED.

Preferred Method

Ensure proper ground exists before use

The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a 3-prong(grounding) plug which mates with a standardthree-pronggrounding wall receptacle to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from this appliance.

The customer should have the wall receptacle and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the receptacle is properly grounded.

Where a standard two-prongwall receptacle is encountered, it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to have it replaced with a properly groundedthree-prongwall receptacle.

DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND) PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD.

A word about GFCI’s – GFCI’s are not required or recommended for gas range receptacles.

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI’s) are devices that sense leakage of current in a circuit and automatically switch off power when a threshold leakage level is detected. These devices must be manually reset by the consumer. The National Electrical Code requires the

use of GFCI’s in kitchen receptacles installed to serve countertop surfaces. Performance of the range will not be affected if operated on a GFCI-protectedcircuit but occasional nuisance tripping of the GFCI breaker is possible.

3ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS (CONT.)

A.Usage Situations where Appliance Power Cord will be Disconnected Infrequently.

An adapter may be used only on a 15-ampcircuit. Do not use an adapter on a20-ampcircuit. Where local codes permit, aTEMPORARY CONNECTION may be made to a properly groundedtwo-prongwall receptacle by the use of aUL-listedadapter, available at most hardware stores. The larger slot in the adapter must be aligned with the larger slot in the wall receptacle to provide proper polarity in the connection of the power cord.

Temporary Method

(Adapter plugs not permitted in Canada)

Align large prongs/slots

Ensure proper ground and firm connection before use

CAUTION: Attaching the adapter ground terminal to the wall receptacle cover screw does not ground the appliance unless the cover screw is metal, and not insulated, and the wall receptacle is grounded through the house wiring. The customer should have the circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the receptacle is properly grounded.

When disconnecting the power cord from the adapter, always hold the adapter with one hand. If this is not done, the adapter ground terminal is very likely to break with repeated use. Should this happen, DO NOT USE the appliance until a proper ground has again been established.

40

Installation Instructions

3ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS (CONT.)

B.Usage Situations where Appliance Power Cord will be Disconnected Frequently.

Do not use an adapter plug in these situations because disconnecting of the power cord places undue strain on the adapter and leads to eventual failure of the adapter ground terminal. The customer should have the 2-prongwall receptacle replaced with athree-prong(grounding) receptacle by a qualified electrician before using the appliance.

The installation of appliances designed for mobile home installation must conform with the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standard, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280 (formerly the Federal Standard for Mobile Home Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD, Part 280) or, when such standard is not applicable, the Standard for Manufactured Home Installations, latest edition (Manufactured Home Sites, Communities and Set-Ups),ANSI A225.1, latest edition, or with local codes. In

Canada, mobile home installation must be in accordance with the current CAN/CSA Z240/MH Mobile Home Installation Code.

Electric Disconnect

Locate disconnect plug on the range back.

Pinch sides of connector and pull out of range back.

5CHECK IGNITION OF SURFACE BURNERS

Operation of all cooktop and oven burners should be checked after the range and gas supply lines have been carefully checked for leaks.

Electric Ignition Models

Select a top burner knob and simultaneously push in and turn to LITE position. You will hear aclicking sound indicating proper operation of the spark module. Once the air has been purged from the supply lines, burners should light within 4 seconds. After burner lights, rotate knob out of theLITE position. Try each burner in succession until all burners have been checked.

Quality of Flames

The combustion quality of burner flames needs to be determined visually.

(A) Yellow flames—

Call for service

(B) Yellow tips on outer cones—

Normal for LP gas

(C) Soft blue flames—Normal for natural gas

If burner flames look like (A), call for service. Normal burner flames should look like (B) or (C), depending on the type of gas you use.

With LP gas, some yellow tipping on outer cones is normal.

4 SEAL THE OPENINGS

Seal any openings in the wall behind the range and in the floor under the range when hookups are completed.

6 CHECK IGNITION OF OVEN BURNER

The oven is designed to operate quietly and automatically. To operate the oven, press the BAKE pad and then press the number pads until350° appears in the display. Touch theSTART/ON pad. After30–90seconds, the oven burner will ignite and burn until the set temperature is reached. The oven burner will continue to cycle on and off as necessary to

maintain the oven at the temperature indicated by the display.

To check ignition of the broil burner, touch the BROIL HI/LO pad and then theSTART/ON pad. After30–90seconds, the broil burner will ignite.

Electric ignition models require electrical power to operate. In case of a power outage, the oven burners on these models cannot be lit manually with a match. Gas will not flow unless the glow bar is hot.

If the oven is in use when a power outage occurs, the burner will shut off and cannot be re-lituntil power is restored.

Installation Instructions

7ADJUST BROIL AND OVEN BURNER AIR ADJUSTMENT SHUTTERS IF NECESSARY

Air adjustment shutters for the top and bottom burners regulate the flow of air to the flames.

Air adjustment shutter

Loosen

The air adjustment shutter for the top (broil) burner is in the center of the rear wall of the oven.

Loosen

Air adjustment shutter

The shutter for the bottom (oven) burner is near the back wall behind the storage drawer or kick panel. Remove the drawer or panel. See the Care and cleaning of the range section.

To adjust the flow of air to either burner, loosen the Phillips head screw and rotate the shutter toward open or closed position as needed.

The flames for the top (broil) burner should be steady with approximately 1blue cones and should not extend out over the edges of the burner baffle.

To determine if the bottom burner flames are burning properly, remove the oven bottom. Flames should have approximately 1blue cones and, if range is supplied with natural gas, should burn with no yellow tipping. (With most LP gas, small yellow tips at the end of outer cones are normal.) Flames should not lift off burner ports. If lifting is observed, gradually reduce air shutter opening until flames are stabilized.

To remove the oven bottom:

A.Remove the knurled screws holding down rear of the oven bottom.

B.Grasp the oven bottom at finger slots on each side.

C.Lift the rear of the oven bottom enough to clear the lip of the range frame, push it back, and then pull it up and out.

B.Check for levelness by placing a spirit level or a cup, partially filled with water, on one of the oven shelves. If using a spirit level, take two readings—withthe level placed diagonally first in one direction and then

the other.

C.Remove the storage drawer or kick panel. See the Care and cleaning of the range section. The front leveling legs can be adjusted from the bottom and the rear legs can be adjusted from the top or the bottom.

D.Use an open-endor adjustable wrench to adjust the leveling legs until the range is level.

E.After the range is level, slide the range away from the wall so that the Anti-Tipdevice can be installed.

Installation Instructions

9INSTALLING THE ANTI-TIPDEVICE

WARNING!

Range must be secured with an approved Anti-Tipdevice.

Unless properly installed, the range could be tipped by you or a child standing, sitting or leaning on an open door.

After installing the Anti-Tipdevice, verify that it is in place by carefully attempting to tilt the range forward.

This range has been designed to meet all recognized industry tip standards for all normal conditions.

The use of this device does not preclude tipping of the range when not properly installed.

If the Anti-Tipdevice supplied with the range does not fit this application, use the universalAnti-Tipdevice WB2X7909.

A.Mark the wall where the RIGHT EDGE of the range is to be located. Be sure to allow for the countertop overhang if you intend to install the range next to cabinets.

B.Locate the outside edge of the device 218 toward the center of the range from the marked edge of the range.

C.Using the device as a template, mark the position of the hole for the screw.

D.For wood construction, drill a pilot hole at an angle of 20 degrees from the horizontal. A nail or awl may be used if a drill is not available.

Mount the Anti-Tipdevice with the screw provided.

For cement or concrete construction, you will need a 1/4x 112lag bolt and a 1/2O.D. sleeve anchor, which are not provided. Drill the recommended size hole for the hardware.

9INSTALLING THE ANTI-TIPDEVICE(CONT.)

Wallboard

Back of range

Install the sleeve anchor into the drilled hole and then install the lag bolt through the device. The bolts must be properly tightened as recommended for the hardware.

E.Slide the range against the wall, and check for proper installation by grasping the front edge of the cooktop and carefully attempting to tilt the range forward.

WHEN ALL HOOKUPS ARE

COMPLETED

Make sure all controls are left in the off position. Make sure the flow of combustion and ventilation air to the range is unobstructed.

CONVERTING TO LP GAS (or converting back to natural gas from LP)

This range leaves the factory set for use with natural gas. If you want to convert to LP gas, the conversion must be performed by a qualified LP gas installer.

The conversion instructions and LP orifices can be found attached to the range next to the pressure regulator.

Keep these instructions and the orifices in case you want to convert back to natural gas.
