Child Safety

NEVER leave children alone or unsupervised near the appliance when it is in use or is still hot.

NEVER allow children to sit or stand on any part of the appliance as they could be injured or burned.

CAUTION do not store items of interest to children in cabinets above the range or on the backguard of the range. Children climbing on the range to reach those items could be seriously injured.


/ Warnings

Cooking Safety

Once the unit has been installed as outlined in the Installation Instructions, it is important that the fresh air supply is not obstructed. The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat and moisture in the room in which it is installed.

Ensure that the kitchen is well-ventilated. Keep natural venting holes open or install a mechanical ventilation device. Prolonged or intensive use of the appliance may call for additional (such as opening a window) or more e ective ventilation (such as increasing the level of a mechanical ventilation if present).

NEVER use aluminum foil to cover oven racks or oven bottom. This could result in risk of electric shock, fi re, or damage to the appliance. Use foil only as directed in this guide.

To eliminate the hazard of reaching over hot surface burners, cabinet storage should not be provided directly above a unit. Temperatures may be unsafe for some items, such as volatile liquids, cleaners or aerosol sprays.

ALWAYS place a pan on a surface burner before turning it on. Be sure you know which knob controls which surface burner. Make sure the correct burner is turned on and that the burner has ignited. When cooking is completed, turn burner o before removing pan to prevent exposure to burner fl ame.

ALWAYS adjust surface burner fl ame so that it does not extend beyond the bottom edge of the pan. An excessive fl ame is hazardous, wastes energy and may damage the appliance, pan or cabinets above the appliance. This is based on safety considerations.

NEVER leave a surface cooking operation unattended especially when using a high heat setting or when deep fat frying. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers may ignite. Clean up greasy spills as soon as possible. DO NOT use high heat for extended cooking operations.

DO NOT heat unopened food containers, build up of pressure may cause the container to explode and result in injury.

ALWAYS let quantities of hot fat used for deep fat frying cool before attempting to move or handle.

NEVER wear garments made of fl ammable material or loose fi tting or long-sleeved apparel while cooking. Clothing may ignite or catch utensil handles. DO NOT drape towels or materials on oven door handles. These items could ignite and cause burns.

ALWAYS place oven racks in the desired posi-

tions while oven is cool. Slide oven rack out to add or remove food, using dry, sturdy pothol-

ALWAYS avoid reaching into the oven to add or remove food. If a rack must be moved while hot, use a dry pot-holder.

ALWAYS turn the oven o at the end of cooking.

Use care when opening the oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before moving or replacing food.

DO NOT cook directly on the oven bottom. This could result in damage to your appliance.

Always use the oven racks when cooking in the oven.ders.

Do not connect any appliances to the plugs above or near to the induction cooktop; connection cable insulation can melt if in contact with heat, and this may result in an injury and a property damage.

Recommended Utensils

Use pans with fl at bottoms and handles that are easily grasped and stay cool. Avoid using unstable, warped, easily tipped or loose-han- dled pans. Also avoid using pans, especially small pans, with heavy handles as they could be unstable and easily tip. Pans that are heavy to move when fi lled with food may also be hazardous.

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.

To minimize burns, ignition of fl ammable materials and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, DO NOT extend handles over adjacent surface burners. ALWAYS turn pan handles toward the side or back of the appliance, not out into the room where they are easily hit or reached by small children.

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

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

Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic or glazed utensils are suitable for rangetop surface or oven usage without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Follow manufacturer’s instructions when using glass.


/ Warnings

Induction Cooking Surfaces

Surface areas on or adjacent to the unit may be hot enough to cause burns. Do not touch the cooking area as long as the light indicating residual heat on the glass-ceramic cooktop area, is “on”; this indicates that the temperature in the relative area is still high.

DO NOTCOOK ON BROKEN COOKING SURFACE – If cooking surface should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooking surface and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualifi ed technician immediately.

Keep a close eye on children because they are unlikely to see the residual heat warning lights. The cooking zones are still very hot for some time after use, even if they are switched o . Make sure that children never touch them.

NEVER use aluminum foil to to hold the food while cooking on a glass-ceramic cooktop area.

Never place pan with bottoms which are not perfectly fl at and smooth on the cooktop area.

If you drop a heavy pot on your cooktop area it will not break. On the contrary, if a hard object, suchasthesaltshakerorthespicebottlestrikes the edge or the corner of the cooktop area, the cooktop area may break.

Never use the glass-ceramic cooktop area as support surface.

Only use cleaning products made specifi cally for ceramic glass cooking surfaces.

Metal items such as cutlery or lids must never be placed on the surface of the cooktop area since they may become hot.

Oven Heating Elements

NEVER touch oven bake and broil burner areas or interior surfaces of oven.

Bake and broil burners may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near burners and interior surfaces of an oven may become hot enough to cause burns.

During and after use, DO NOT touch or let clothing or other fl ammable materials contact heating elements, areas near elements, or interior surfaces of oven until they have had suf- fi cient time to cool. Other surfaces of the oven may become hot enough to cause burns, such as the oven vent opening, the surface near the vent opening, and the oven door window.

Cleaning Safety

Turn o all controls and wait for appliance parts to cool before touching or cleaning them. DO NOT touch the burner grates or surrounding areas until they have had su cient time to cool.

Clean the range with caution. Avoid steam burns; DO NOT use a wet sponge or cloth to clean the range while it is hot. Some cleaners produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface. Follow directions provided by the cleaner manufacturer.

DO NOT clean, rub, damage, move or remove the door gasket. It is essential for a good seal during baking. If the gasket becomes worn or excessively soiled with food particles, replace gasket to assure a tight seal.

Power failure warning

Due to safety considerations and the possibility of personal injury in attempting to light and extinguish the oven burners, the grill and the oven burner should not be used during a power failure. The oven control knob should always remain in the “OFF” position during a power failure.


Neverusethisapplianceasaspaceheatertoheat or warm the room. Doing somay result in carbon monoxid poisoning and overheating of the oven

Room ventilation

An exhaust fan may be used with the appliance; in each case it shall be installed in conformity with the appropriate national and local standards. Exhaust hood operation may a ect other vented appliances; in each case it shall be installed in conformity with the appropriate national and local standards.

Electrical shock hazard

Make sure all controls are OFF and oven is COOL before cleaning. Failure to do so can result in burns or electrical shock.

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 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 fl ow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may also trap heat, causing a fi re hazard.

Burn hazard

The oven door, especially the glass, can get hot. DO NOT touch the oven door glass!


/ Warnings

Warning-tipping hazard

A child or adult can tip over the range and be killed.

Verify the anti-tip device has been properly installaed and engaged.

Ensure the anti-tip device is re-engaged when the range is moved.

Do not operate the range without the anti-tipdevi- ce in place and engaged.

Failure to do so can result in death or serious burns to children or adults.

The instructrions shall warn the user of possible hazard or injures that may result from the misuse of appliance doors such as stepping, leanign or sitting on the doors.

The burners and the burner caps must be properly placed for the cooktop to function properly.



The burner grates must be properly placed inside the recess on the cooktop.


The fl ame should be stable with no excessive noise or fl uttering. The color should be blue with no yellow on the tips. It is not uncommon to see orange in the fl ame color; this indicates the burning of airborne impurities in the gas and will disappear

With propane (LP) gas, slight yellow tips on the primary icon are normal.

The fl ame should burn completely around the burner cap. If it doesn’t, check that the cap is positioned

Correctly on the base and that the ports are not blocked.with use.

Never extend the fl ame beyond the base of the pan. Use a low or medium fl ame for pan materials that conduct the heat slowly, such as porcelain coated steel or glass-ceramic.

Because the edges of the fl ame are much hotter than its center, the fl ame tips should stay beneath the bottom of the cookware. Flame tips which extend beyond the sides of the cookware emit unnecessary heat into the room and can also damage cookware handles, which increases the risk of injury.

A fl ame failure device (thermocouple) on each burner acts as a safety gas cut-o in case the fl a- me is accidentally blown out. Athermocouple detects the absence of a fl ame and stops the supply of gas. The thermocouple must be heated for a few seconds when the burner is ignited before the knob is released.


Either fl at-based or round-bottom woks with the accessory ring can be used on all models. Round bottom woks must be used with a support ring. In some models the porcelain-coated cast iron wok support ring must be purchased separately.

Simmer ring

For very slow cooking the porcelain coated simmer ring should be used. In some models the por- celain-coated cast iron simmer ring must be purchased separately.

Simmer ring must be used for pan with diametr less than 4 inches.

NOTE: In the event of a power failure, the burners can be lit with a match or gas lighter. The fl ame failure devices will continue to function normally.

/ gas oven



Do not use the gas oven in case of electric power failure. In case of electric power failure reset oven/broiler controls to OFF position. Oven/broiler burners cannot operates until electric power is restored to the appliance.

If the oven burner flame is extinguished accidentally during operation, turn the temperature control knob counter-clockwise to the OFF position. Wait at least 60 seconds before attempting to light the oven again.

ATTENTION! When using the oven for the fi rst time it should be operated for 15-30 minutes at a temperature of about 500°F/260°C without cooking anything inside in order to eliminate any moisture and odours from the internal insulation.


Shelves are mounted on the appropriate guides situated on the sides of the oven compartment. Insert the shelf between top and bottom guide in any of the 5 positions indicated.







Automatic operation of the cooling fan.

The range cooker is equipped with a thermostatically controlled cooling fan designed to prevent the control panel and knobs from overheating. The cooling fan will operate when the oven temperature groves up. It will turn o when the temperature decreases.

NOTE: It is normal for the cooling process to push heated air out into the room when the oven is on.


A fl ame failure device (thermocouple) on each burner acts as a safety gas cut-o in case the fl a- me is accidentally blown out. Athermocouple detects the absence of a fl ame and stops the supply

of gas. The thermocouple must be heated for a few seconds when the burner is ignited before the knob is released.


Most cooking times in recipes are intended for a preheated oven and require that the oven already be at the set temperature before placing food in the oven. Preheating time depends on the temperature setting and the number of racks in the oven.


The oven is equipped with several elements, used alone or in combination to create di erent cooking

Bake burner

Broil burner

Oven fanmodes:

The temperature setting and cooking times can vary slightly from one oven to another. It is possible that recipes and cooking times need to be adjusted accordingly.


Heat from bake burner only.

Use this setting for baking, roasting, and casseroles.

Open the oven door, with oven/broiler thermostat knob in the OFF position,

Press the thermostat knob for about 1 to 2 sec., release it immediately

Turn it to the desired oven temperature; if the burner does not light up, turn the thermostat knob to the OFF position again and and wait 1 minute before repeating the sequence.

The gas oven operation is indicated by the light in the cavity.

Wait 20sec. before closing the oven door, visually check that the fl ame is on through the portholes on the oven compartment bottom panel. If no fl ame is visible, repeat the procedure.

After lighting the burner and setting the desired temperature, wait until the thermometer shows the set temperature before placing food in the oven.

The BAKE mode is best for baking on one rack:

Standard baking: level 2 or 3

Baking tall items: level 2

Pies: level 1 or 2

Large cuts of meat or poultry: level 1


/Ggas oven

Convection bake

Heat from bake burner and airflow convection with fan.

Cooking with convection has several advantages. In the convection system, two fans in the back of the oven move heated air evenly around the cavity, eliminating hot and cold spots and ensuring temperature is even. Multiple dishes can be cooked at the same time on di erent levels, without having to rotate the pans. For convection, use shallow bakeware to reduce heat shadows.

Food cooked uncovered will brown evenly and form a nice crust. Food placed in covered bakeware or delicate custards do not benefi t from convection cooking.

Preheat the oven as for BAKE and turn the function knob to ‘CONVECTION’ before placing the food in the cavity.

Single rack: use the same rack position as bake

2 racks: use level 2 and 4

3 racks : use level 1, 3, 5


Infrared heat from the BROIL burner in the top of the cavity.

Use this setting for broiling/grilling dark meats 1” thick or less to rare or medium doneness.

Before turning on the oven, place the rack in the desired position. After preheating the broiler, center the broil pan under the broil element.

Preheating the Broiler

It is recommended that you preheat the broil element before starting to cook. Preheat for 5 minutes then place food in oven.

Open the oven door, with oven/broiler thermostat knob in the OFF position,

press the thermostat knob for about 1to 2 sec., release it immediately

turn it to ‘ BROIL’ ; if the broiler fails to light up, turn the thermostat knob to the OFF position again and and wait 1 minute before repeating the sequence.

The gas broil operation is indicated by the light in the cavity.

Wait 20 sec. before closing the oven door, visually check that the fl ame is on.If no fl ame is visible, repeat the procedure.

The broil mode is e ective when food is placed on upper racks.

Beef steaks, ground meat patties, and lamb chops 1 inch or less: level 5.

Meat 1 inches or more thick, fi sh, poultry, pork chops, ham steaks 1 inch or more: level 4.

Browning food: level 5.


Use this function to light the oven when the oven is o (for example to clean the oven). Turn the function knob to ‘bake’. DO NOT turn on Oven Temperature Control Knob.


The proof feature maintains the warm, needed for proofi ng yeast. It is best to start with a cool oven when using the proofi ng function. Turn the function knob to ‘light’. DO NOT turn on Oven Temperature Control Knob. Do not open the oven door unnecessarily.

Convection defrost

Air is circulated by the airfl ow fans. The fan accelerates natural defrosting of food without heat. DO NOT leave defrosted food in the oven for more than two hours. Place the frozen food on a baking sheet. Turn the function knob to ‘CONV’. DO NOT turn on Oven Temperature Control Knob.


It is normal for a certain amount of moisture to evaporate from the food during any cooking process. The amount depends on the moisture content of the food. The moisture will condense on any surface cooler than the inside of the oven, such as the control panel.

Using aluminum foil in the oven

Foil can be used to cover food in the oven but this should not come into close proximity with the oven elements. Foil should not be used to line the oven cavity or grill pan. This can cause overheating, buckling and cracking of the enamel surfaces.
