!WARNING

To avoid risk of electrical shock, personal injury, or death, make sure your range has been properly grounded and always disconnect it from main power supply before any servicing.

!WARNING

This appliance contains or produces a chemical or chemicals which can cause death or serious illness and which are known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. To reduce the risk from substances in the fuel or from fuel combustion make sure this appliance is installed, operated, and maintained according to the instructions in this booklet.

!CAUTION

Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets above a range or behind the backguard of a range. Children climbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.

!WARNING

To avoid risk of electrical shock, personal injury, death, or property damage, verify wiring is correct, if components were replaced. Verify proper complete operation of unit after servicing.

!CAUTION

DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR UNITS—Surface units may be hot though they are dark in color. Areas near surface units may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing touch or other flammable materials contact surface units or areas near surface units until they have had enough time to cool. These areas include the rangetop and backguard.

!CAUTION

DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF OVEN—Oven heating elements may be hot though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of an oven may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials touch heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until they have had enough time to cool. Other range surfaces that may become hot enough to cause burns are the oven door and oven.

ALL APPLIANCES

1.Proper Installation—Be sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician.

2.Never Use Your Appliance for Warming or Heating the Room.

3.Do Not Leave Children Alone—Children should not be alone or unattended in the area where the appliance is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance.

Important Safety Information

SURFACE COOKING UNITS

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

2.Never Leave Surface Units Unattended—Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.

3.Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are In Place—Absence of these pans or bowls during cooking may subject wiring or components underneath to damage.

4.Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line oven bottom. Improper installation of these liners may result in a risk of electrical shock or fire.

5.Glazed Cooking Utensils—Do not use glass, ceramic, earthware, or other glazed utensils. They can damage smoothtop and can break due to sudden change in temperature.

6.Utensil Handles Should be Turned Inward and Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface Units—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.

7.Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements—Heating elements should never be immersed in water.

OVENS

1.Use Care When Opening Door—Let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food.

2.Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers—Buildup of pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.

3.Keep Oven Vent 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.

VENTILATION HOODS

1.Clean Ventilation Hoods Frequently—Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.

2.When flaming foods under hood, turn fan off. The fan, if operating, may spread the flame.

In Case of Fire

Fires can occur as a result of over cooking or excessive grease. Though a fire is unlikely, if one occurs, proceed as follows:

Surface Element Fire

1.Smother the fire with a nonflammable lid or baking soda, or use a Class ABC or BC extinguisher. Not water. Not salt. Not flour.

2.As soon as it is safe to do so, turn the surface controls to “OFF”.

Oven Fires

1.If you see smoke from your oven, do not open oven door.

2.Turn oven control to “OFF”.

3.As an added precaution, turn off power at main circuit breaker or fuse box.

4.Turn on vent to remove smoke.

5.Allow food or grease to burn itself out in oven. Do not open oven door.

6.If smoke and fire persist, call fire department.

7.If there is any damage to components, call an authorized servicer before using range.

Precautions

Do not cook food directly on range top surface, always use cookware.

Do not mix household cleaning products. Chemical mixtures may interact with objectionable or even hazardous results.

Do not put plastic items on warm cooking areas. They may stick and melt.

Do not slide rough objects across range top surface. Scratching or metal marking can result.

Do not leave fat heating unless you remain nearby. Fat can ignite if overheated by spilling onto hot surfaces.

Do not allow pots to boil dry as this can cause damage to cooking surface and pan.

Do not use range top surface as a cutting board.

Do not use range for storage or as a display counter.

Pan Bottom Test

Determine if pan has a flat bottom. For best cooking results, use a pan with a flat bottom.

1.Rotate a ruler along bottom of pan. If pan is not flat, gaps between bottom of pan and edge of ruler occur.

2.A small groove or mark on a pan does not effect cooking times. However, if a pan has a gap, formed rings, or an uneven bottom, it does not cook efficiently and in some cases may not boil water.
