FOLLOW ALL INSTALLATION

INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING: To reduce risk of tipping of the appliance from

abnormal usage or by excessive loading of the oven door, the appliance must be secured by a properly installed anti-tip device.

1

Important Safety Instructions

To check if device is properly installed, look underneath range with a flashlight to make sure one of the rear leveling legs is properly engaged in the bracket slot. The anti-tip device secures the rear leveling leg to the floor when properly engaged. You should check this anytime the range has been moved.

To Prevent Fire or Smoke Damage

Be sure all packing materials are removed from the appliance before operating it.

Keep area around appliance clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and materials.

If appliance is installed near a window, proper precautions should be taken to prevent curtains from blowing over burners.

NEVER leave any items on the cooktop. The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable items and may increase pressure in closed containers which may cause them to burst.

Many aerosol-type spray cans are EXPLOSIVE when exposed to heat and may be highly flammable. Avoid their use or storage near an appliance.

Many plastics are vulnerable to heat. Keep plastics away from parts of the appliance that may become warm or hot. Do not leave plastic items on the cooktop as they may melt or soften if left too close to the vent or a lighted surface burner.

To eliminate the hazard of reaching over hot surface burners, cabinet storage should not be provided directly above a unit. If storage is provided, it should be limited to items which are used infrequently and which are safely stored in an area subjected to heat from an appliance. Temperatures may be unsafe for some items, such as volatile liquids, cleaners or aerosol sprays.

In Case of Fire

Turn off appliance and ventilating hood to avoid spreading the flame. Extinguish flame then turn on hood to remove smoke and odor.

Cooktop: Smother fire or flame in a pan with a lid or cookie sheet.

NEVER pick up or move a flaming pan.

Oven: Smother fire or flame by closing the oven door.

Do not use water on grease fires. Use baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher to smother fire or flame.

Child Safety

CAUTION

NEVER store items of interest to children in cabinets above an appliance or on backguard of a range. Children climbing on the appliance door to reach items could be seriously injured.

NEVER leave children alone or unsupervised near the appliance when it is in use or is still hot.

NEVER allow children to sit or stand on any part of the appliance as they could be injured or burned.

Children must be taught that the appliance and utensils in it can be hot. Let hot utensils cool in a safe place, out of reach of small children. Children should be taught that an appliance is not a toy. Children should not be allowed to play with controls or other parts of the unit.

About Your Appliance

WARNING

NEVER use appliance door as a step stool or seat as this may result in possible tipping of the appliance and serious injuries.

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

NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom or cover the entire rack with materials such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil may also trap heat causing a fire hazard.

NEVER obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air by blocking the oven vent or air intakes. Doing so restricts air to the burners and may result in carbon monoxide poisoning.

The oven vent is located at the base of the backguard.

Avoid touching oven vent area while oven is on and for several minutes after oven is turned off. Some parts of

2

Important Safety Instructions

the vent and surrounding area become hot enough to cause burns. After oven is turned off, do not touch the oven vent or surrounding areas until they have had sufficient time to cool.

Other potentially hot surfaces include cooktop, areas facing the cooktop, oven vent, surface near the vent opening, oven door, area around the oven door and oven window.

Do not touch a hot oven light bulb with a damp cloth as the bulb could break. Should the bulb break, disconnect power to the appliance before removing bulb to avoid electrical shock.

Cooking Safety

Always place a pan on a surface burner before turning it on. Be sure you know which knob controls which surface burner. Make sure the correct burner is turned on and that the burner has ignited. When cooking is completed, turn burner off before removing pan to prevent exposure to burner flame.

Always adjust surface burner flame so that it does not extend beyond the bottom edge of the pan. An excessive flame is hazardous, wastes energy and may damage the appliance, pan or cabinets above the appliance.

NEVER leave a surface cooking operation unattended especially when using a high heat setting or when deep fat frying. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers may ignite. Clean up greasy spills as soon as possible. Do not use high heat for extended cooking operations.

NEVER heat an unopened container on the surface burner or in the oven. Pressure build-up may cause container to burst resulting in serious personal injury or damage to the appliance.

Use dry, sturdy potholders. Damp potholders may cause burns from steam. Dish towels or other substitutes should never be used as potholders because they can trail across hot surface burners and ignite or get caught on appliance parts.

Always let quantities of hot fat used for deep fat frying cool before attempting to move or handle.

Do not let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate in or near the appliance, hood or vent fan. Clean hood frequently to prevent grease from accumulating on hood or filter. When flaming foods under the hood turn the fan on.

NEVER wear garments made of flammable material or loose fitting or long-sleeved apparel while cooking. Clothing may ignite or catch utensil handles.

Always place oven racks in the desired positions while oven is cool. Slide oven rack out to add or remove food, using dry, sturdy potholders. Always avoid reaching into the oven to add or remove food. If a rack must be moved while hot, use a dry potholder. Always turn the oven off at the end of cooking.

Use care when opening the oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before moving or replacing food.

PREPARED FOOD WARNING: Follow food manufacturer’s instructions. If a plastic frozen food container and/or its cover distorts, warps, or is otherwise damaged during cooking, immediately discard the food and its container. The food could be contaminated.

NEVER use aluminum foil to cover oven racks or oven bottom. This could result in risk of electric shock, fire, or damage to the appliance. Use foil only as directed in this guide.

Utensil Safety

Use pans with flat bottoms and handles that are easily grasped and stay cool. Avoid using unstable, warped, easily tipped or loose-handled pans. Also avoid using pans, especially small pans, with heavy handles as they could be unstable and easily tip. Pans that are heavy to move when filled with food may also be hazardous.

Be sure utensil is large enough to properly contain food and avoid boilovers. Pan size is particularly important in deep fat frying. Be sure pan will accommodate the volume of food that is to be added as well as the bubble action of fat.

To minimize burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, do not extend handles over adjacent surface burners. Always turn pan handles toward the side or back of the appliance, not out into the room where they are easily hit or reached by small children.

Never let a pan boil dry as this could damage the utensil and the appliance.

Follow the manufacturer’s directions when using oven cooking bags.

Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic or glazed utensils are suitable for cooktop or oven usage without breaking due to the sudden change in tempera-

3 ture. Follow manufacturer’s instructions when using glass.

Important Safety Instructions

This appliance has been tested for safe performance using conventional cookware. Do not use any devices or accessories that are not specifically recommended in this guide. Do not use eyelid covers for the surface units, stovetop grills, or add-on oven convection systems. The use of devices or accessories that are not expressly recommended in this manual can create serious safety hazards, result in performance problems, and reduce the life of the components of the appliance.

Cleaning Safety

Turn off all controls and wait for appliance parts to cool before touching or cleaning them. Do not touch the burner grates or surrounding areas until they have had sufficient time to cool.

Clean appliance with caution. Use care to avoid steam burns if a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot surface. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.

Self-Clean Oven

CAUTION

Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the oven racks, broiler pan, food and any other utensils. Wipe spillovers to prevent excessive smoke and flare-ups.

Clean only parts listed in this guide. Do not clean door gasket. The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the gasket. Do not use oven cleaners of any kind in or around any part of the self-clean oven.

It is normal for the cooktop of the range to become hot during a self-clean cycle. Therefore, touching the cooktop during a clean cycle should be avoided.

Important Safety Notice and Warning

The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) requires the Governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposures to such substances.

Users of this appliance are hereby warned that the burning of gas can result in low-level exposure to some of the listed substances, including benzene, formaldehyde and soot, due primarily to the incomplete combustion of natural gas or liquid petroleum (LP) fuels. Properly adjusted burners will minimize incomplete combustion. Exposure to these substances can also be minimized by properly venting the burners to the outdoors.

Users of this appliance are hereby warned that when the oven is engaged in the self-clean cycle, there may be some low-level exposure to some of the listed substances, including carbon monoxide. Exposure to these substances can be minimized by properly venting the oven to the outdoors by opening the windows and/ or door in the room where the appliance is located during the self-clean cycle.

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING PET BIRDS:

Never keep pet birds in the kitchen or in rooms where the fumes from the kitchen could reach. Birds have a very sensitive respiratory system. Fumes released during an oven self-cleaning cycle may be harmful or fatal to birds. Fumes released due to overheated cooking oil, fat, margarine and overheated non-stick cookware may be equally harmful.

Surface Cooking

Low: Use to simmer foods, keep foods warm and melt chocolate or butter. Some cooking may take place on the Low setting if the pan is covered. It is possible to reduce the heat by rotating the knob toward OFF. Be sure flame is stable.

High: Use to bring liquid to a boil, or reach pressure in a pressure cooker. Always reduce setting to a lower heat when liquids begin to boil or foods begin to cook.

An intermediate flame size is used to continue cooking. Food will not cook any faster when a higher flame setting is used than needed to maintain a gentle boil. Water boils at the same temperature whether boiling gently or vigorously.

Surface Controls

CAUTION

If flame should go out during a cooking operation, turn the burner off. If a strong gas odor is detected, open a window and wait five minutes before relighting the burner.

Be sure all surface controls are set in the OFF position prior to supplying gas to the range.

NEVER touch cooktop until it has cooled. Expect some parts of the cooktop, especially around the burners, to become warm or hot during cooking. Use potholders to protect hands.

Setting the controls:

The size and type of cookware will affect the heat setting.

1.Place a pan on the burner grate.

The burner flame may lift off or appear separated from the port if a pan is not placed on the grate.

2.Push in and turn the knob counterclockwise to the Light setting.

A clicking (spark) sound will be heard and the burner will light. (All four ignitors will spark when any surface burner knob is turned to the Light position.)

3.After the burner lights, turn knob to desired flame size.

The ignitor will continue to spark until the knob is turned past the Light position.

Pilotless Ignition

Pilotless ignition eliminates the need for a constant standing pilot light. Each surface burner has a spark ignitor. Use care when cleaning around the surface burner.

If the surface burner does not light, check if ignitor is broken, soiled or wet.

Surface Control Knobs

Use to turn on the surface burners. An infinite choice of heat settings is available from Low to High. At the High setting a detent or notch may be felt. The knobs can be set on or between any of the settings.

Graphics next to the knob identify which burner the knob controls. For example, the graphic at left shows the left front burner location.

Operating During a

Power Failure

CAUTION

When lighting the surface burners, be sure all of the controls are in the OFF position. Strike the match first and hold it in position before turning the knob to Light.

1.Hold a lighted match to the desired surface burner head.

2.Push in and turn the control knob slowly to Light.

3.Adjust the flame to the desired level.

Surface Cooking

Cooktop

To prevent the cooktop from discoloring or staining:

Clean cooktop after each use.

Wipe acidic or sugary spills as soon as the cooktop has

cooled as these spills may discolor the porcelain.

Unlike a range with standard gas burners,

this cooktop does not lift-up nor is it removable. Do not attempt to lift the cooktop for any reason.

Sealed Burners

The sealed burners of your range are secured to the cooktop and are not designed to be removed. Since the burners are sealed into the cooktop, boilovers or spills will not seep underneath the cooktop.

However, the burner should be cleaned after each use. The head portion of the burner is easily removed for cleaning. (See page 20 for cleaning directions.)

The burner heads must be correctly placed on the burner base for proper operation of the burner.

High Performance Burner

(16,000 BTU*)

There is one high speed burner on your range, located in the right front position. This burner offers higher speed cooking that can be used to quickly bring water to a boil and for largequantity cooking.

Simmer Burner

This burner is located in the right rear position. The simmer burner offers a lower BTU flame for delicate sauces or melting chocolate.

* BTU ratings will vary when using LP gas.

Notes:

A properly adjusted burner with clean ports will light within a few seconds. If using natural gas, the flame will be blue with a deeper blue inner cone.

If the burner flame is yellow or is noisy, the air/gas mixture may be incorrect. Contact a service technician to adjust. (Adjustments are not covered by the warranty.)

With LP gas, slight yellow tips on the flames are acceptable. This is normal and adjustment is not necessary.

With some types of gas, you may hear a “popping” sound when the surface burner is turned off. This is a normal operating sound of the burner.

If the control knob is turned very quickly from High to Low, the flame may go out, particularly if the burner is cold. If this occurs, turn the knob to the OFF position, wait several seconds and relight the burner.

The flame should be adjusted so it does not extend beyond the edge of the pan.

6

Surface Cooking

Burner Grates

The grates must be properly positioned before cooking. When installing the grates, place the tab ends toward the center, matching the straight bars.

Improper installation of the grates may result in chipping of the cooktop.

Do not operate the burners without a pan on the grate. The grate’s porcelain finish may chip without a pan to absorb the heat from the burner flame.

Use care when stirring food in a pot/pan sitting on the burner grate. The grates have a smooth finish for ease of cleaning. The pot/pan will slide if the handle is not held. This may result in spilling of hot food items and may be a burn hazard.

Although the burner grates are durable, they will gradually lose their shine and/or discolor, due to the high temperatures of the gas flame.

Oven Cooking

Adjusting the Oven Temperature

Oven temperatures are carefully tested for accuracy at the factory. It is normal to notice some baking or browning differences between a new oven and an old one. As ovens get older, the oven temperature can shift.

You may adjust the oven temperature if you think the oven is not baking or browning correctly. To decide how much to change the temperature, set the temperature 25° higher or lower than your recipe recommends, then bake. The results of the “test” should give you an idea of how much to adjust the temperature.

To adjust the oven temperature:

1.Press the Bake pad.

2.Enter 550° by pressing the appropriate number pads.

3.Press and hold the Bake pad for several seconds or until 0° appears in the display.

If the oven temperature was previously adjusted, the change will be displayed. For example, if the oven temperature was reduced by 15° the display will show “-15°”.

4.Press the Autoset 0 pad to adjust the temperature.

Each time the Autoset 0 pad is pressed, the temperature changes by 5°. The oven temperature can be increased or decreased by 5° to 35°.

Pressing the Autoset 0 pad will first cycle through increasing the oven temperature (5, 10, . . . 35). Continuing to press the Autoset 0 pad will then cycle through decreasing the oven temperature (-35, -30, . . . -5).

5.The time of day will automatically reappear in the display.

You do not need to readjust the oven temperature if there is a power failure or interruption. Temperature adjustment applies to Bake and Convect only. Broiling and cleaning temperatures cannot be adjusted.

Changing Temp °F/°C

1.The factory default setting for temperature is Fahrenheit.

2.To change the setting, press and hold the CANCEL and Bake pads at the same time for three seconds.

3.A single beep will sound and the current setting will be displayed (°F or °C). (If no change is made, the range will return to the existing setting after 30 seconds.)

4.To change the setting, press the Autoset 0 pad. Press again to return to existing setting. Wait five seconds and the setting will be complete.

Favorite

The Favorite pad allows you to save the time and temperature from a Cook & Hold function.

To set a Favorite cycle, a Cook & Hold function must be either active or just programmed.

Oven Cooking

Pilotless Ignition

Your range is equipped with pilotless ignition. With this type of ignition system, the gas automatically shuts off and the oven will not operate during a power failure.

A lighted match will not light the oven burner. No attempt should be made to operate the oven during a power failure.

Oven Fan

A convection fan is used to circulate hot air in the oven when the convection feature is selected. It automatically turns on 5 minutes after the Convect pad is pressed and will turn off when Convect is canceled.

Note: The convection fan will automatically stop when the oven door is opened.

Oven Vent

When the oven is in use the area near the vent may become hot enough to cause burns. Never block the vent opening.

The oven vent is located below the backguard vent shield on your range.

OVEN VENT LOCATION

Do not place plastics near the vent opening as heat from the vent could distort or melt the plastic.

Oven Racks

CAUTION

Do not attempt to change the rack position when the oven is hot.

Do not use the oven for storing food or cookware.

The oven has three racks. All racks are designed with a lockstop edge.

To remove:

1. Pull rack straight out until it stops at the lock-stop position.

2. Lift up on the front of the rack and pull out.

To replace:

1.Place rack on the rack support in the oven.

Care & Cleaning

Self-Clean Oven

CAUTION

It is normal for parts of the range to become hot during a self-clean cycle.

To prevent damage to oven door, do not attempt to open the door when LOCK is displayed.

Avoid touching cooktop, door, window or oven vent area during a clean cycle.

Do not use commercial oven cleaners on the oven finish or around any part of the oven. They will damage the finish or parts.

The self-clean cycle uses above-normal cooking temperatures to automatically clean the oven interior.

The oven should be cleaned regularly by wiping up spillovers to prevent excessive smoke and flare-ups. Do not allow a heavy build-up of soil to accumulate in the oven.

During the cleaning process, the kitchen should be well ventilated to get rid of normal odors associated with cleaning.

Before Self-Cleaning

1.Turn off the oven light before cleaning. The light may burn out during the clean cycle.

2.Remove broiler pan, all pans, and oven racks from the oven. The oven racks will discolor and may not slide easily after a self-clean cycle if they are not removed.

3.Clean oven frame, door frame, area outside of gasket, and around the opening in the door gasket with a

nonabrasive cleaner such as Bon Ami* or detergent and water. The self-cleaning process does not

clean these areas. They should be cleaned to prevent soil from baking

on during the clean cycle. (The gasket is the seal around the oven door and window.)

4.To prevent damage, do not clean or rub the gasket around the oven door. The gasket is designed to seal in heat during the clean cycle.

5.Wipe up excess grease or spillovers from the oven bottom. This prevents excessive smoking, flare-ups or flaming during the clean cycle.

6.Wipe up sugary and acidic spillovers such as sweet potatoes, tomato, or milk-based sauces. Porcelain enamel is acid-resistant, not acid-proof. The porcelain finish may discolor if acidic spills are not wiped up before a self-clean cycle.

To set Self-Clean:

Note: Oven temperature must be below 400° F to program a clean cycle.

1. Close the oven door.

2. Press the Clean pad.

• CLEAN flashes in the display.

• SET flashes in the display.

3. Press the Autoset 0 pad.

MEd (Medium Soil, 3 hours) is displayed.

4.Press the Autoset 0 pad to scroll through the self-cleaning settings.

HVy (Heavy Soil, 4 hours) MEd (Medium soil, 3 hours) LITE ( Light Soil, 2 hours)

Choosing the soil level of the oven automatically programs the self-cleaning time.

5.After four seconds, the oven will start cleaning.

If the door is not closed, beeps will sound and “door” will display. If the door is not closed within 30 seconds, the self-cleaning operation will be canceled and the display will return to the time of day.

CLEAN will appear in the display.

LOCK will flash in the display. Once the door locks, the word will remain steady.

The cleaning time will start counting down in the display.

To Delay a Self-Clean Cycle:

1. Press the Delay 1 pad.

• DELAY flashes.

• 00:00 will flash in the display.

2.Enter the amount of time you want to delay the cycle using the appropriate number pads.

3. Press the Clean pad.

• SET flashes in the display.

4. Press the Autoset 0 pad.

• LITE (Light soil level) is displayed.

Care & Cleaning

5. Press the Autoset 0 pad to scroll through the self-cleaning settings.

HVy (Heavy Soil, 4 hours)

MEd (Medium Soil, 3 hours)

LITE (Light Soil, 2 hours)

Choosing the soil level of the oven automatically programs the self-cleaning time.

6.After four seconds, CLEAN and DELAY will light and LOCK will flash in the display. When the oven door latches, LOCK will stop flashing and light continuously to show that the oven is set for a delayed clean operation. The delay time will display.

After Self-Cleaning

About one hour after the end of the self-clean cycle, LOCK will turn off. The door can then be opened.

Some soil may leave a light gray, powdery ash. Remove it with a damp cloth. If soil remains after wiping, that means the clean cycle was not long enough. The soil will be removed during the next clean cycle.

If oven racks were left in the oven and do not slide smoothly after a clean cycle, wipe racks and rack supports with a small amount of vegetable oil to make them easier to move.

Fine lines may appear in the porcelain because it went through heating and cooling. This is normal and will not affect performance.

A white discoloration may appear after cleaning if acidic or sugary foods were not wiped up before the self-clean cycle. This discoloration is normal and will not affect performance.

During the Self-Clean Cycle

When LOCK shows in the display, the door cannot be opened. To prevent damage to the door, do not force the door open when LOCK is displayed.

Smoke and Smells

You may see some smoke and smell an odor the first few times the oven is cleaned. This is normal and will lessen in time.

Smoke may also occur if the oven is heavily soiled or if a broiler pan was left in the oven.

Sounds

As the oven heats, you may hear sounds of metal parts expanding and contracting. This is normal and will not damage the oven.

Notes:

If the oven door is left open, “door” will flash in the display and a signal will beep until the door is closed and the Clean pad is pressed again.

If more than five seconds elapse between pressing the Clean pad and the Autoset 0 pad, the program will automatically return to the previous display.

The oven door will be damaged if the oven door is forced to open when LOCK is still displayed.
