The Anti-Tip Bracket

The range will not tip during normal use. However, the range can tip if you apply too much force or weight to the open door without the anti-tip bracket fastened down properly.

 

WARNING

A child or adult can tip the range

killed.

Verify the anti-tip bracket has

installed and engaged per installation instructions.

Re-engage anti-tip bracket if range is moved.

Do not operate range without anti-tip bracket installed and engaged.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or serious burns to children and adults.

Anti-Tip

Bracket

Range Foot

To verify the anti-tip bracket is installed and engaged:

Slide range forward.

Look for the anti-tip bracket securely attached to floor or wall.

Slide range back so rear range foot is under anti-tip bracket.

See installation instructions for details.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to persons, or damage when using the range, follow basic precautions, including the following:

WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED BY PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP DEVICES. TO CHECK IF THE DEVICES ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE RANGE FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET SECURELY ATTACHED TO FLOOR OR WALL, AND SLIDE RANGE BACK SO REAR RANGE FOOT IS UNDER ANTI-TIP BRACKET.

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

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

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

Proper Installation – Be sure the range is properly installed by a qualified technician.

Remove battery before servicing.

Injuries may result from the misuse of appliance doors or drawers such as stepping, leaning, or sitting on the doors or drawers.

Maintenance – Keep range area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and liquids.

Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven or near surface units.

Top burner flame size should be adjusted so it does not extend beyond the edge of the cooking utensil.

For self-cleaning ranges –

Before Self-Cleaning the Oven – Remove broiler pan and other utensils. Wipe off all excessive spillage before initiating the cleaning cycle.
