In Massachusetts:
All gas products must be installed by a “Massa­chusetts” licensed plumber or gasfi tter. A “T” han­dle type manual gas valve must be installed in the gas line connected to this appliance.
To ensure proper and safe operation: Appliance must be properly installed and grounded by a qualifi ed technician. DO NOT attempt to adjust, repair, service, or replace any part of your applian­ce unless it is specifi cally recommended in this manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualifi ed servicer. Have the installer show you the location of the gas shut-off valve and how to shut it off in an emergency.
A certifi ed technician is required for any adjust­ments or conversions to Natural or LP gas.
To Prevent Fire or Smoke Damage
Be sure all packing materials are removed from
the appliance before operating it.
Never let clothing, potholders, or other fl am-
mable materials come in contact with or too clo­se to any element, top burner or burner grate until it has cooled.
If appliance is installed near a window, proper
precautions should be taken to prevent curtains from blowing over burners.
Never leave any items on the cooktop. The hot
air from the vent may ignite fl ammable items and may increase pressure in closed contai­ners which may cause them to burst.
Many aerosol-type spray cans are EXPLOSI-
VE when exposed to heat and may be highly fl ammable. Avoid their use or storage near an appliance.
In Case of Fire
Turn off appliance and ventilation hood to avoid spreading the fl ame. Extinguish fl ame then turn on hood to remove smoke and odor.
Cooktop: Smother fi re or fl ame in a pan with a
lid or cookie sheet.
NEVER pick up or move a fl aming pan.
Oven: Smother fi re or fl ame by closing the oven
door. DO NOT use water on grease fi res. Use baking soda, a dry chemical or foamtype extin­guisher to smother fi re or fl ame, if available, a multipurpose dry chemical or foam type extin­guisher.
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.
DO NOT store items of interest to children over
the unit. Children climbing 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 eff 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 befo-
re 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 off 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, bu-
ild 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 pothol­ders.
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 off 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.
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-han­dled 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 con-
tain 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 mate-
rials 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, ce-
ramic 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.
FACE – 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 off . 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, such as the salt shaker or the spice bottle strikes 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.
Radio Interference - Induction Ranges
This unit generates, uses, and can radiate ra­dio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communi­cations. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular in­stallation. If this unit does cause harmful inter­ference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the unit off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna
Increase the distance between the unit and re-
Connect the unit into an outlet on a circuit dif-
ferent from that to which the receiver is con­nected.
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 suf­fi 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 off 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 suffi 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.
NEVER use appliance as a space heater to heat or warm a room to prevent potential hazard to the user and damage to the appliance. Also, DO NOT use the rangetop or oven as a storage area for food or cooking utensils.
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!
Warning-tipping hazard
Children and adults can tip over the range if it has not been secured.This may lead to fatal injuries.
/ Warnings
To reduce the risk of the appliance tipping, it must be secured and connected using the anti-tip de­vice according to the installation instructions. Re-engage the anti-tip device if the range is mo­ved.
Do not operate the range without the anti-tipdevi­ce in place and engaged. Do not use the range if the anti-tip device has not been properly installed and engaged. See installation instructions for de­tails.
Failure to observe the information con­tained in the installation instructions can lead to serious or fatal injuries for children and adults.
