Important Safety Instructions

mended 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. Follow utensil manufacturer’s instructions when using glass.

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.

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.

GLASS-CERAMIC SURFACE: NEVER cook on broken cooktop. If cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.

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.

Clean 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.

Clean only parts listed in this guide.

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.

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.

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 selfcleaning 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.

Surface Cooking

Surface Controls

Use to turn on the surface elements. An infinite choice of heat settings is available from Low to High. The knobs can be set on or between any of the settings.

Setting the Controls

1.Place pan on surface element.

2.Push in and turn the knob in either direction to the desired heat setting.

The control panel is marked to identify which element the knob controls. For example, the graphic at right indicates left front element.

3.There is an element indicator light on the control panel. When any surface control knob is turned on, the light will turn on. The light will turn off when all the surface elements are turned off.

When a control is turned on, a glow can be seen through the smoothtop surface. The element will cycle on and off to maintain the preset heat setting, even on High.

4.After cooking, turn knob to OFF. Remove pan.

Suggested Heat Settings

The size and type of cookware, type and amount of food being heated, and wattage of individual elements will determine where to set the knob for cooking operations. Some elements have a predetermined simmer and melt setting that will require only minor adjustment up or down depending on the food being prepared. The other elements have settings printed around the knobs that are also unique to those elements. Adjust the heat settings to the numbers that give the desired cooking results.

The following descriptions will aid in choosing the settings that will give optimum results.

Hold or Warm: Food maintains a temperature above 140°F without continuing to cook. Food is initially hot and then heat is reduced. Never use a hold or warm setting to reheat cold food.

Simmer: Food forms bubbles that barely break the surface. Foods are between 185°F and 200°F. A simmer

setting can also be used to steam or poach foods or continue cooking covered foods.

Slow Boil: Food forms bubbles at a moderate pace. A slow boil setting can also be used for most frying and for maintaining the cooking of large amounts of liquids.

Boil: Liquid forms bubbles at a rapid pace. A fast boil setting can also be used to brown meat, stir fry, sauté, and heat oil for frying before turning to a lower setting. The highest 3 or 4 settings on the knob are used for these cooking

operations. The highest setting is always used to bring water to a boil. Some elements offer an even higher speed for boiling liquids.

Dual Elements

The cooking surface has two dual elements located in the right front and left front of the smoothtop. This allows you to change the size of these elements.

The small element is operated on the left side of the knob control. To operate the entire element, use the right side of the knob control. The control for both element sizes can be set anywhere between Low and High.

CAUTION

BEFORE COOKING

Always place a pan on the surface unit before you turn it on. To prevent damage to range, never operate surface unit without a pan in place.

NEVER use the cooktop as a storage area for food or cookware.

DURING COOKING

Be sure you know which knob controls which surface unit. Make sure you turned on the correct surface unit.

Begin cooking on a higher heat setting then reduce to a lower setting to complete the operation. Never use a high heat setting for extended cooking.

NEVER allow a pan to boil dry. This could damage the pan and the appliance.

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

AFTER COOKING

Make sure surface unit is turned off.

Clean up messy spills as soon as possible.

OTHER TIPS

If cabinet storage is provided directly above cooking surface, limit it to items that are infrequently used and can be safely stored in an area subjected to heat. Temperatures may be unsafe for items such as volatile liquids, cleaners or aerosol sprays.

NEVER leave any items, especially plastic items, on the cooktop. The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable items, melt or soften plastics, or increase pressure in closed containers causing them to burst.

NEVER allow aluminum foil, meat probes or any other metal object, other than a pan on a surface element, to contact heating elements.

NEVER store heavy items above the cooktop that could fall and damage it.

Surface Cooking

Smoothtop Surface

Smoothtop Surface Notes:

Cooktop may emit light smoke and odor the first few times the cooktop is used. This is normal.

Smoothtop cooktops retain heat for a period of time after the element is turned off. Turn the elements off a few minutes before food is completely cooked and use the retained heat to complete cooking. When the hot surface light turns off, the cooking area will be cool enough to touch. Because of the way they retain heat, the smoothtop elements will not respond to changes in settings as quickly as coil elements.

In the event of a potential boilover, remove the pan from the cooking surface.

Never attempt to lift the cooktop.

The smoothtop surface may appear discolored when it is hot. This is normal and will disappear when the surface cools.

Cooking Areas

The cooking areas on your range are identified by permanent circles on the smoothtop surface. For most efficient cooking, fit the pan size to the element size.

Pans should not extend more than 1/2 to 1-inch beyond the cooking area.

When a control is turned on, a glow can be seen through the smoothtop surface. The element will cycle on and off to maintain the preset heat setting, even on Hi.

For more information on cookware, refer to Cookware Recommendations on page 6 .

Hot Surface Light

The Hot Surface indicator light is located at the front of the cooking surface. The light will be illuminated when any cooking area is hot. It will remain on, even after the control is turned off, until the surface has cooled.

Warming Zone

Use the Warming Zone to keep hot cooked foods warm, such as vegetables and gravies.

Setting the Control:

1. Push in and turn the knob. Warming temperatures are approximate and are indicated on the control as Low, 2-10 and Warm. However, the control can be set to any position between Low and WARM.

2. When done, turn the control to OFF and remove food. The Hot Surface indicator light

will go off when the Warming Zone surface has cooled.

Notes:

Never warm food for longer than one hour (eggs for 30 minutes), as food quality may deteriorate.

Do not heat cold food on the Warming Zone.

Heat settings will vary depending on type and amount of food. Always hold food at proper food temperatures. USDA recommends food temperatures between 140°-170° F.

Warming Zone Notes:

Use only cookware and dishes recommended as safe for oven and cooktop use.

Always use oven mitts when removing food from the Warming Zone as utensils will be hot.

All foods should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain food quality.

When warming pastries and breads the cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape.

Do not use plastic wrap to cover foods. Plastic may melt on to the surface and be very difficult to clean.

Be very careful not to allow aluminum foil to touch the cooktop. If foil melts, do not use the cooktop. Call an authorized servicer.

Surface Cooking

Tips to Protect the

Smoothtop Surface

Cleaning (see page 20 for more information)

Before first use, clean the cooktop.

Clean your cooktop daily or after each use. This will keep your cooktop looking good and can prevent damage.

If a spillover occurs while cooking, immediately clean the spill from the cooking area while it is hot to prevent a tough cleaning chore later. Using extreme care, wipe spill with a clean dry towel.

Do not allow spills to remain on the cooking area or the cooktop trim for a long period of time.

Never use abrasive cleansing powders or scouring pads which will scratch the cooktop.

Never use chlorine bleach, ammonia or other cleansers not specifically recommended for use on glass-ceramic.

Never use cooktop as a work surface or cutting board.

Never cook food directly on the surface.

Do not use a small pan on a large element. Not only does this waste energy, but it can also result in spillovers burning onto the cooking area which requires extra cleaning.

Do not use non-flat specialty items that are oversized or uneven such as round bottom woks, rippled bottom and/or oversized canners and griddles.

Do not use foil or foil-type containers. Foil may melt onto the glass. If metal melts on the cooktop, do not use. Call an authorized servicer.

Cookware Recommendations

Using the right cookware can prevent many problems, such as food taking longer to cook or achieving inconsistent results. Proper pans will reduce cooking times, use less energy, and cook food more evenly.

To Prevent Marks & Scratches

Do not use glass pans. They may scratch the surface.

Never place a trivet or wok ring between the surface and pan. These items can mark or etch the top.

Do not slide aluminum pans across a hot surface. The pans may leave marks which need to be removed promptly. (See Cleaning, page 20.)

Make sure the surface and the pan bottom are clean before turning on to prevent scratches.

To prevent scratching or damage to the glass-ceramic top, do not leave sugar, salt or fats on the cooking area. Wipe the cooktop surface with a clean cloth or paper towel before using.

Never slide heavy metal pans across the surface since these may scratch.

To Prevent Stains

Never use a soiled dish cloth or sponge to clean the cooktop surface. A film will remain which may cause stains on the cooking surface after the area is heated.

Continuously cooking on a soiled surface may/will result in a permanent stain.

To Prevent Other Damage

Do not allow plastic, sugar or foods with high sugar content to melt onto the hot cooktop. Should this happen, clean immediately. (See Cleaning, page 20.)

Never let a pan boil dry as this will damage the surface and pan.

Flat Pan Tests

See if your pans are flat.

The Ruler Test:

1.Place a ruler across the bottom of the pan.

2.Hold it up to the light.

3.Little or no light should be visible under the ruler.

The Bubble Test:

1.Put 1 inch of water in the pan. Place on cooktop and turn control to High.

2.Watch the formation of the bubbles as the water heats. Uniform bubbles mean good performance, and uneven bubbles indicate hot spots and uneven cooking.

Surface Cooking

Canning and Oversize Cookware

All canners and large pots must have flat bottoms and must be made from heavy-gauge materials. This is critical on smoothtop surfaces. The base must not be more than

1 inch larger than the element.

When canners and pots do not meet these standards, cooking times may be longer, and cooktops may be damaged.

Some canners are designed with smaller bases for use on smoothtop surfaces.

When canning, use the High heat setting only until the water comes to a boil or pressure is reached in the canner. Reduce to the lowest heat setting that maintains the boil or pressure. If the heat is not turned down, the cooktop may be damaged.

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 degrees 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 degrees. The oven temperature can be increased or decreased by 5 to 35 degrees.

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.

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 all pans and oven racks from the oven. The oven racks will discolor and may not slide easily after a selfclean 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.

SET flashes in the display.

3. Press the Autoset 0 pad.

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.

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.

Fault Codes

BAKE or LOCK may flash rapidly in the display to alert you if there is an error

 

 

or a problem. If BAKE or LOCK appear in the display, press Cancel pad.

 

 

If BAKE or LOCK continue to flash, disconnect power to the appliance.

 

 

Wait a few minutes, and then reconnect power. If the flashing still continues,

 

 

disconnect power to the appliance and call an authorized servicer.

 

• If the oven is heavily soiled, excessive flareups may result in a fault code during

 

 

cleaning. Press the Cancel pad and allow the oven to cool completely, wipe out

 

 

excess soil, then reset the clean cycle. If the fault code reappears, contact an

 

 

authorized servicer.

 

 

 

Noises may be heard.

The oven makes several low level noises. You may hear the oven relays as they go on

 

 

and off. This is normal.

 

• As the oven heats and cools, you may hear sounds of metal parts expanding and

 

 

contracting. This is normal and will not damage your appliance.
