3.Keep Oven Vents Ducts Unobstructed.

4.Placement of Oven Racks—Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack is removed while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating element in oven.

SURFACE COOKING UNITS

1.Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped with one or more surface burners of different sizes. Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface burner flame. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to burner will also improve efficiency.

2.Never Leave Surface Burners Unattended at High Heat Settings—Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.

3.Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line oven bottom except as suggested in the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in a risk of electrical shock, or fire.

4.Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass, ceramic, earthware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for rangetop service without breaking due to sudden change in temperature.

5.Utensil Handles Should be Turned Inward and Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface Burners—To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface units.

Delayed Ignition

Surface Burners

Burner should ignite within 4 seconds. If burner does not ignite within 4 seconds turn control knob to OFF position and follow directions in “Placing Grates and Burner Caps” and “Before Calling for Service” section. Try burner again. If burner still does not ignite in 4 seconds, contact an authorized servicer.

Bake Burner Flame

Allow no more than 40–60 seconds before burner ignites and heat is felt. To check for heat, open oven door to first stop and place hand over oven door. If heat is not felt, turn temperature knob to OFF position. If burner repeatedly fails to ignite, contact an authorized servicer.

Broiler Flame

Allow no more than 40–60 seconds before burner ignites and flame is seen. If burner does not ignite turn temperature knob to OFF position. If burner repeatedly fails to ignite within 40–60 seconds contact an authorized servicer.

Radiant screen style broiler flame should appear hazy or fuzzy. Haze should be no more than 3/8 inch thick. The radiant screen should begin to glow red or orange within 1–2 minutes.
