About Your Appliance

CAUTION

NEVER use an appliance as a step to reach cabinets above. Misuse of appliance door, such as stepping, leaning or sitting on the door, may result in possible tipping of the appliance, breakage of door, and serious injuries.

To prevent potential hazard to the user and damage to the appliance, do not use appliance as a space heater to heat or warm a room. Also, do not use the oven as a storage area for food or cooking utensils.

Do not obstruct the flow of air by blocking the oven vent.

Cooking Safety

Never heat an unopened food container 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 elements and ignite or get caught on appliance parts.

Wear proper apparel. Loose fitting or long hanging-sleeved apparel should not be worn while cooking. Clothing may ignite and cause burns if garment comes in contact with heating elements.

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. Do not let potholder contact hot element in oven.

Use racks only in the oven in which they were shipped/purchased.

Use care when opening the oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before removing 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.

Do not allow aluminum foil or meat probe to contact heating element.

Always turn off all controls when cooking is completed.

DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF OVEN. Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of any oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the appliance may become hot enough to cause burns – among these surfaces are: oven vent opening, surface near this opening, oven door and window of oven door.

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.

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

Utensil Safety

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

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, stove top grills or add-on oven convection systems. The use of devices or accessories that are not expressly recommended in this guide can create serious safety hazards, result in performance problems, and reduce the life of the components of the appliance.

If pan is smaller than element, a portion of the element will be exposed to direct contact and could ignite clothing or potholder.

Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for cooktop or oven service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature.

2 Follow utensil manufacturer’s instructions when using glass.

Important Safety Instructions

Turn pan handle toward center of cooktop, not out into the room or over another surface element. This reduces the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, or spillage if pan is accidently bumped or reached by small children.

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.

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

Cooktop

NEVER leave surface units unattended especially when using high heat. An unattended boilover could cause smoking and a greasy spillover can cause a fire.

This appliance is equipped with different size surface elements. Select pans with flat bottoms large enough to cover element. Fitting pan size to element will improve cooking efficiency.

Coil Elements

To prevent damage to removable heating elements, do not immerse, soak or clean in a dishwasher or self-clean oven. A damaged element could short resulting in a fire or shock hazard.

Make sure drip bowls are in place as absence of these bowls during cooking could damage wiring.

Protective Liners: Do not use aluminum foil to line surface unit drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as suggested in the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in a risk of electric shock or fire.

Deep Fat Fryers

Use extreme caution when moving the grease pan or disposing of hot grease. Allow grease to cool before attempting to move pan.

Ventilating Hoods

Clean range hood and filters frequently to prevent grease or other flammable materials from accumulating on hood or filter and to avoid grease fires.

When flaming foods under the hood, turn the fan on.

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.

Clean only parts listed in this guide.

Self-Clean Oven (select models)

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.

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 or oven liners 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 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.

Cleaning Safety

Clean cooktop with caution. Turn off all controls and wait for appliance parts to cool before touching or cleaning. Clean with

Automatic Shut-Off/Sabbath Mode

The oven will automatically turn off after 12 hours if you accidentally leave it on. This safety feature can be turned off.

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 ranges get older, the oven temperature can shift.

To cancel the 12-hour shut-off and run the oven continuously for 72 hours:

1.Set the oven to bake (see page 9).

2.Press and hold the Clock pad for five seconds.

SAb will be displayed and flash for five seconds.

SAb will then be displayed continuously until turned off or until the 72-hour time limit is reached.

BAKE will also be displayed if a bake cycle is in use while the oven is in Sabbath Mode.

All other functions EXCEPT BAKE (Timer, Keep Warm, Clean, etc.) are locked out during the Sabbath Mode.

To cancel Bake when in Sabbath Mode:

Press CANCEL.

• BAKE will turn off in the display.

• No beeps will sound.

To cancel the Sabbath Mode:

1.Press the Clock pad for five seconds. OR

2.After 72 hours, the Sabbath Mode will end.

SAb will flash for five seconds.

The time of day will return to the display.

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 Bake.

2.Enter 550° by pressing the ▲ pad.

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 ▲ or ▼ pad to adjust the temperature.

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

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. Broiling and cleaning temperatures cannot be adjusted.

Care & Cleaning

Self-Clean Oven (select models)

Note: For manual clean oven, see page 18.

CAUTION

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

To prevent personal injury and damage to the oven door do not attempt to open 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. Do not force the oven door or lock lever open. This may result in exposure to high temperatures and be a burn hazard.

It is normal for flare-ups, smoking, or flaming to occur during cleaning if the oven is heavily soiled. It is better to clean the oven regularly rather than to wait until there is a heavy buildup of soil 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.Move door lock lever right to the locked position.

3. Press the Clean pad.

• CLEAN flashes in the display.

If the door is not closed, beeps will sound and “DOOR” will display. If the door is not closed within 45 seconds, the self-cleaning operation will be canceled and the display will return to the time of day.

4. Press the ▲ or ▼ pad.

• CL-M (Medium Soil, 3 hours) is displayed.

5. Press the ▲ or ▼ pad to scroll through the self-cleaning settings.

CL-H (Heavy Soil, 4 hours)

CL-M (Medium soil, 3 hours)

CL-L (Light Soil, 2 hours)

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

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

The cleaning time will start counting down in the display.

LOCK will appear in the display.

CLEAN will appear in the display.

To Delay a Self-Clean Cycle:

1.Press the Delay pad.

DELAY flashes.

00:00 will appear in the display.

2.Press the ▲ or ▼ pad to set the amount of

time you want to delay the cycle. Delay time can be set from ten minutes (00:10) to 11 hours, 59 minutes (11:59).

DELAY will turn off.

The clean time will appear in the display.

To cancel the Self-Clean cycle:

Press the CANCEL pad.

All words disappear from the display.

All functions are canceled.

The time of day appears in the display.

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.

After Self-Cleaning

About one hour after the end of the self-clean cycle, LOCK will turn off. The door can then be opened. Move door lock lever to the left to unlock.

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.

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.

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