Do not touch any electrical switch; do not use any phone in your building.

Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbouring building. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.

If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.

Installation and servicing must be performed by a qualified installer, service agent, or gas supplier.



Remove all tape and packaging wrap before using the oven. If any glue remains, touch the residue with the sticky side of the packaging tape, or use a cloth soaked with rubbing alcohol. Use caution as rubbing alcohol is flammable. Rinse with warm water and wipe dry.

Destroy the carton and plastic bags after the range is unpacked. Children should not use packaging material for play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads, or plastic sheets can become air-tight chambers. Remove all staples from the carton. Staples can cause severe cuts and destroy finishes if they come in contact with appliances or furniture.

Be safety conscious. The perparation of food in an oven requires temperatures that could cause severe burns. Before using this, or any new appliance, carefully read and follow all instructions.



•Be sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician in accordance with the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223. - lasted edition, or in Canada CAN/CGA B149.1, and CAN/CGA B149.2, and the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No.70-lasted edition, or in Canada CSA Standard C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code, Part 1, and local code requirements. Install only per installation instructions provided in this Owner’s Use and Care Guide. Be sure leveling legs are in place at the bottom corners of the range. If necessary, raise or lower the leveling legs at the base of the range by turning clockwise or counterclockwise to ensure a level range.

• Ask your dealer to recommend a qualified technician or an authorized repair service. Have the technician familiarize you with the locations of the manual gas shut off valve or gas meter, in the event it is necessary to shut off gas supply to the unit during an emergency.

WARNING: Failure to act in accordance with instructions regarding the following situations may result in propery damage, bodily harm, or death.


Never leave children alone or unattended in the area where an appliance is in use. Children should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of this appliance. Never leave the oven door open when the range is unattended.

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



Do not allow children to climb or play around the range. The weight of a child on an open oven door may cause the range to tip, resulting in serious burns or other injury.

USER SERVICING: Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in this owner’s guide. All other servicing should be done only by a qualified technician. This will reduce the risk of personal injury and damage to the range.

• Storage in or on appliance: Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven, near surface burners, or in the broiler section. This includes paper, plastic and cloth items, such as cookbooks, plasticware and towels, as well as flammable liquids.

Do not use the oven for storage. Do not store explosives, such as aerosol cans, on or near the range.

Remove the oven door from any unused range if it is to be stored or discarded.

Stepping, leaning, or sitting on the doors or broiler section of this range can result in serious injuries and can cause damage to the range.

WARNING: The following situations could result in property damage or bodily harm


Do not touch surface burners, areas near the burners, oven burners, or interior surfaces of the oven. Both surface burners and oven burners may be hot even though the flame is not visible. Areas near surface burners may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch or let clothing or other flammable materials touch these areas until they have had sufficient time to cool. Among these areas are the cooktop, surfaces facing the cooktop, the oven vent openings, and surfaces near these openings, oven door and windows.

Never use your appliance to warm or heat the room. Operating your range without utensils or pans to absorb the unit’s heat risks damaging the surface, knobs, and controls.

Wear proper apparel; lose fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while using the appliance. Do not let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface burners or interior surfaces of the oven until they have had sufficient time to cool.

Never modify or alter the construction of the range. Do not remove leveling legs, panels, wire covers, anti-tip brackets or any other permanent part of the product.

When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or grease may catch fire if allowed to become too hot.

Do not use water or flour on grease fires. Smother the fire with a pan lid, baking soda, or use a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.

Use only dry potholders; wet or damp potholders on hot surfaces could result in burns from steam. Do not let the potholders touch hot heating areas. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of potholder.

Use proper flame size; Adjust flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the cookware. The use of undersized cookware will expose a portion of the burner flame and may result in severe burns or direct contact and ignition of clothing. Also, proper relationship of cookware to burner will improve efficiency.

Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven bottom except as suggested in the cleaning section of this manual. Improper use of aluminum foil may result in a fire hazard. Foil may also interfere with heat circulation and damage the range.

Placement of oven rack: Always place oven rack in the desired location while the oven is cool. If rack must be moved when the oven is hot, use potholders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact hot oven walls. Remove all cookware from the rack before moving.

Do not heat unopened food containers. Build-up of pressure may cause the container to burst and result in injury.

Keep the oven vent duct unobstructed. The oven vent is located along the bottom of the backgaurd. Touching the surfaces in the vent area when the oven is being operated may cause severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or near the oven vents. These items could melt or ignite.

The range requires fresh air for proper burner combustion. Do not block the flow of air around the base or beneath the lower front panel of the range.

Use care when operating oven door; Stand to the side of the oven when opening the oven door. Slowly open the door to allow hot air or steam to escape before removing or replacing food.

Know which knob controls each burner. Place a pan of food on the burner before turning it on, and turn the burner off before removing the pan. Always turn to the full LITE position when igniting the top burners. Then adjust the flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the cookware.

Cookware handles should be turned inward and not extend over adjacent surface burners, to reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the cookware.

Never leave the surface burners unattended.

Boil-over may cause smoking and greasy spills may catch fire or a pan which has boiled dry may melt.

• Do not place hands between the spring tension hinge and the oven door frame when you are removing the oven door. You could pinch your fingers.




Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The broiler pan and its insert allow dripping fat or grease to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler. Do not cover the insert with foil. Exposed fat or grease could ignite.

Allow parts to cool to room temperature before touching or removing them from the range. When a surface burner is first turned off, the burner and grate are hot enough to cause burns.

Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of fat or grease which could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area underneath each surface burner. Exhaust fan ventilating hoods and grease filters should be cleaned regularly. Do not allow fat or grease to accumulate. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire. Refer to the hood manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.

Glazed Cookware: Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed cookwares are suitable for rangetop service without breaking, due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the cookware manufacturer’s recommendations for rangetop use.

Do not place plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders, or plastic wrappings on top of the range. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels, or wooden spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the flame.

Do not use a wok equipped with a metal ring that extends beyond the burner. Because this ring traps heat, the burner and grate could be damaged. Also, the burner may not work properly, creating a carbon monoxide level above current health standards.

Do not clean the oven door gasket. The door gasket is essentially for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the gasket.

Flexible Connectors: If the gas range/oven is connected to a gas supply with a metal flexible connector, move the range/oven with CAUTION for service or cleaning. Flexible connectors are not intended for repeated bending. Do not allow cleaners to make contact with flexible connectors.

The connector and its fittings are designed for use only on the original installation and are not to be reused for another appliance or at another location.

It is good practice for each household to have an appropriate fire extinguisher for use in the event of a house fire.

Disconnect the range from electrical supply before attempting to service or move it.

NOTE: The instructions appearing in this owner’s guide are not meant to cover every possible condition and situation that may occur. Common sense and caution must be practiced when operating and maintaining any appliance.



Surface Cooking:

Use lids when surface cooking. A lid traps steam and uses it to speed up the cooking process. If you have a pressure cooker or vegetable steamer, use it. You will save time and cut energy costs.

Use medium-weight, flat bottomed pans that match the flame size. Choose pans made of metals that conduct heat well.

When cooking on a surface burner, use as little water as possible to reduce cooking time.

Oven Cooking:

Preheat the oven only when a recipe tells you. Put roasts and casseroles into a cold oven, then turn the oven on.

Opening the oven door often to check on foods wastes energy.

Use the oven to prepare complete meals. For instance, start a roast, add vegetables when the meat is halfcooked, and then warm rolls or dessert after the main dishes are cooked.

Thaw frozen foods before cooking. Thawed food requires less cooking energy than frozen food.

Make it a habit to turn the oven off before removing the cooked food.



Be sure the appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician. It is the responsibility of the technician to be certain that your range is properly installed. Situations caused by improper installation are not covered under the warranty. Any expenses incurred due to such situations will not be paid by the manufacturer of the appliance.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of tipping the appliance by abnormal usage or improper door loading, the appliance must be secured by properly installing the anti-tip device packed with the appliance. To check if the device is installed and engaged properly, carefully tip the range forward. The anti-tip device should engage and prevent the range from tipping over.

If this range is removed for any reason, service or cleaning etc,. it must be replaced as outlined in the installation instructions, before placing the range back in operation.



All free-standing ranges must be level to obtain proper cooking results. The leveling legs should be screwed into the corner brackets. Place a level, or a pan or measuring cup partially filled with water, level on oven rack. Adjust leveling legs until the range is level. The top of the side panels should be level with countertop or work surface.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to keep the leg levelers. Leveling of the range is very important.


Have the dealer where you purchased your new range install or recommend a qualified installer. Installation must conform with local codes. The range should be connected to a supply line with 1/2-inch black iron pipe or a certified flexible type stove connector. To prevent gas leaks, put an approved sealing compound, which is resistant to liquefied gases, on all threaded connections.

IMPORTANT: Do not apply pressure directly to the range manifold pipe when tightening supply connections. The manifold pipe should be held securely at the pressure regulator to prevent twisting. Hold the pressure regulator with a wrench during the tightening of the connection, or the manifold pipe may be twisted and split, causing a dangerous leak.

Note: The installation of ranges designed for manufactured (mobile) homes must conform to specific standards and local codes.Check all piping connections in the unit for leaks. Never use an open flame to check for gas leaks. It is possible for connections made at the factory to leak due to vibrations encountered in transportation. Have any suspected leaks repaired before use by a qualified service personnel.


Your range is grounded with a three-conductor (three-prong plug) supply cord which


will ground the range when plugged into a similar grounded wall receptacle.



If the backgaurd of the range has a clock or light, connect the cord from the backgaurd into the special terminal block located at the top of the main back directly under the backgaurd supply cord.The appliance must be electrically grounded when installed in accordance with local codes.





Top Burner Operation:

Note- When boiling food, the highest temperature that can be reached is the boiling point. When the liquid starts to boil, decrease the size of the flame until you reach the minimum flame that will hold the boil. This will save gas. It will also decrease the possibilty of burning food or boiling over, and help keep your kitchen cooler. Use stable cookware with flat bottoms, and always place the cookware on the burner grate before lighting the burner. Unstable or rounded bottom cookware will not contact properly with the grate and will affect the cooking efficiency. Select cookware large enough to avoid spillovers, but remember, over-sized cookware (diameters exceeding 8 1/2”) can cause the range finish to discolor or chip. Damage caused by oversized cookware, such as those sometimes used in canning, are not covered under warranty. The finish has been manufactured to a commercially acceptable standard and its condition is dependent upon the care of the user.






Start most foods; bring water to a boil;




Maintain a slow boil; Thicken sauces,

gravies; steaming.



Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.

Turn the knob to the full LITE position when igniting the top burners. Then adjust the flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the cookware.

Note: Know which knob controls each burner. Place a pan of food on the burner before turning it on, and turn the burner off before removing the pan

Top Burner Valves:

The top burner flame size should be adjusted so that it does not extend beyond the edge of the cookware. As a matter of safety, it is urged that you comply with these instructions.A high flame on a surface burner is both inefficient and unsafe. The flame should always be adjusted so that it is no larger than the bottom of a pan. Fluctuations in flame size could be caused by pressure variations, improperly positioned burners, damage, or debris.


Heat the oven to the desired temperature before placing the food in the oven. Preheat for 10 to 12 minutes.

Opening the Oven Door:

Let hot air/steam escape before removing/replacing food.

Arranging Oven Rack:

The oven rack should be arranged before the oven is turned “ON”. Place the rack so the food is centered in the oven.

Temperature Selection:

It is important to select the proper temperature setting. Never set the dial to a higher degree than necessary, with the intention of lowering the setting at a later time. This will not speed up cooking. It can cause the oven to cycle slower and cause the temperature to vary so that cooking results may be unsatisfactory. Your oven has a temperature range of 250°F ~ 500°F.


When baking, follow the recipe instructions. Use correct ingredients, measure them carefully, and use the correct type and size cookware suggested in the recipe. Remember to preheat properly. Avoid frequent opening of the oven door during preheating and baking.

When baking cakes in glass baking dishes, lower the oven temperature 25°F to prevent browning of the bottom and sides before the top becomes brown.Also, when using glass bakeware, it would be better to increase the preheat time to have exact stabilization of the oven’s temperature. To do so, allow 20 minutes time for temperatures up to 350°F and 30 minutes for temperatures up to 425°F. Avoid opening the door as much as possible.

Oven Rack:

The oven rack should be arranged before the oven knob is turned to an “ON” position. Place the rack so the food is centered in the oven, not the rack.

When more than one dish is used, be sure to stagger them, allowing space between each one. Do not allow the dishes to touch any part of the oven, especially the glass window.

Rack Removal:

Pull the oven rack forward and lift up on the front of the rack so it will clear the rack keeper. To replace the oven rack, guide the angled rear portion of the rack under the rack keeper and slide the rack to the rear. Never cover the oven rack with aluminum foil. Such practices will trap heat and cause intense heat in spots which usually give poor results. It can damage the porcelain finish.




RANGE (cont’d)

Removable Oven Bottom:

First remove the racks from the oven. The oven bottom lifts from the rear. Grasp each side of the oven bottom and lift upward from the rear until the bottom is clear. Lift it to remove from the front. NOTE: If the oven bottom is replaced incorrectly it may warp and cause undesireable baking results.

The oven bottom has a porcelain enamel finish. To make cleaning easier, protect the oven bottom from excessive spillovers. This is particularly important when baking a fruit pie or other foods with high acid content. Hot fruit fillings or foods that are acidic in content, such as milk, tomato or sauerkraut, and sauces with vinegar or lemon juice, may cause pitting and damage to the porcelain enamel surface. To protect the oven bottom surface, place a piece of aluminum foil slightly larger than the baking dish on the rack below to catch any boilovers. It should not completely cover the rack as this would cause uneven heat in the oven. Aluminum foil should not be placed on the oven bottom. If a spillover does occur on the oven bottom, allow the oven to cool first. You can clean the bottom with soap and water, a mild abrasive cleaner, soap-filled abrasive pads, or an oven cleaner (following package directions).

Broiler Compartment:

The broiler pan is held in place by a wire broiler rack. To open the broiler, gently lift up and pull forward on the drop down broiler door. Pull the broiler pan forward. It will reach a temporary stop position. Continue to pull forward and the broiler pan will pull out to expose the entire broiler grill surface. Remove the broiler pan from the broiler rack by lifting up on the front of the broiler pan so it will clear the wire rack. Then pull forward slightly and use both hands to lift the pan free of the rack. To return the pan to the broiler rack, pull the wire rack out to the stop position. Insert the pan into the recessed section of the broiler rack. Slide the pan in place under the pan retainers. Push the pan to the rear of the broiler compartment. Close the broiler door.

Economy Broiler:

Your range may be equipped with this optional broiler. The outward appearance of the range will be the same. To open the broiler door, lift handle up slightly to release the door catch and then lower the door. In the broiler section there are two positions of stamped-in oven rack guides and a broiler pan and grill. When you want to broil, take one of the oven racks and insert it into the rack guide position. Next, place the broiler pan and grill on the oven rack for broiling.

Broiling: (Broiling Pan NOT INCLUDED)

Preheat the broiler area and broil pan for a few minutes. No definite time can be given for broiling meats because of varying thickness, amounts of fat, and personal taste. Be careful when handling hot broiler pans; be careful of hot grease. Serious injury can result due to spillage of hot grease. Never leave a dirty broil pan in place; always clean it and return it to the burner assembly. Unauthorized broil pan substitutes should never be used. Excess fat should be trimmed to reduce the possibility of flame up. The meat could be ruined or fire could occur causing loss of property and bodily injury. When broiling fatty meats, the lowest broil must be used; however, we recommend the lowest position at all times. Always broil with the oven door closed. When broiling is completed, turn the dial to OFF and remove the broil pan temporarily for cleaning.

Do not use broiler area for storage of cookware.

Air Circulation in the Oven:

To cook food evenly, hot air must be able to circulate.

For best air circulation and baking results allow two inches of space around bake ware and be sure pans and bake ware do not touch each other, the oven door, sides or back of the oven cavity.

The hot air must circulate around the pans and bake ware in the oven for even heat to reach around the food.






Center of rack




Side by side or slightly staggered



If removing the range is necessary for cleaning or maintenance, shut off gas supply.

Disconnect the gas and electrical supply.

If the gas or electrical supply is inaccessible, lift the unit slightly at the front and pull out away from the wall.

Pull only as far as necessary to disconnect the gas and electrical supply.

Finish removing the unit for servicing and cleaning.

Reinstall in reverse order making sure to level the range and check gas connections for leaks.

See Anti-Tip Instructions for proper anchoring instructions.

Control Panel and Knobs:

• Before cleaning the control panel be sure that the knobs are in the OFF position. Clean with a soft cloth and warm soapy water. Remove residues and dry carefully; excess water in and around the controls may damage the stove.

The control knobs may be removed for easier cleaning. To remove, pull them straight off the stem. Clean with soft cloth and warm soapy water; rinse well.

To replace knobs after cleaning, connect the flat side of the knob cavity to the control rod and press against the knob to reconnect.

Oven Rack:

• To make the rack slide more easily you may apply a small amount of vegetable oil or cooking oil to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the rack with it.

Broiler Pan:

Remove broiler pan from oven after broiling and carefully pour out the grease from the pan into a proper container.

Wash and rinse the broiler pan using hot water and a soap-filled scouring pad.

If food has burned on, sprinkle with detergent

while it is hot and cover it with wet paper towels or a dishcloth. Soaking the pan will remove burned-on food.

• Do not use commercial oven cleaners, cleaning powders, steel wool pads or harsh abrasives on any surfaces. Vinegar and water solution may be used.

To Remove/Replace the Storage Drawer:

Pull the drawer all the way out until it stops.

Lift the drawer by its handle and pull all of the way out.

To replace, reverse steps above.


The contoured well areas, burner caps and burner heads should be routinely cleaned. Keeping the burner ports clean will prevent improper ignition and an uneven flame.

To clean the recessed and contoured areas of the cook-top:

• If a spill occurs on or in the recessed or contoured areas, blot up spill with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry.

To remove and replace the surface burner caps and surface burner heads, remove in the following order:

1)Surface burner grates

2)Surface burner caps, and

3)Surface burner heads

Reverse the procedure above to replace the surface burner caps and surface burner heads.

•Use a soap-filled scouring pad or a mild abrasive cleanser to clean the surface burner caps and surface burner heads. The ports or slots around the burner head must be routinely cleaned. If residue still remains in these ports, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean the slots or holes.

For proper flow of gas and ignition of the burner do not allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other material to enter the gas orifice holder opening. Always keep the surface burner cap and surface burner head in place whenever a surface burner is in use.


Oven Surface:

Be sure to wear rubber gloves to protect your hands.

Do not use oven cleaners, cleaning powders, steel wool pads, synthetic fiber pads, or any other materials that may damage the surface finishing.

If any acid, grease, sugar, etc. spills on surfaces while they are hot, use a dry paper towl or soft cloth to wipe it up right away. When the surface has cooled, clean with soft cloth and warm soapy water; rinse well.

You may also use a solution of vinegar and water to clean the oven surface. Use vinegar to remove hard stains (white stains).

Heavy spattering or spillover may require cleaning with a mildly abrasive cleaner.other material to enter the gas orifice holder opening. Always keep the surface burner cap and surface burner head in place whenever a surface burner is in use.



Oven Cavity:

Do not use oven cleaners, cleaning powders, steel wool pads, synthetic fiber pads, or any other materials that may damage the surface finishing.

To clean the oven bottom, gently lift the bake

element. This will allow easier access to the oven bottom for cleaning. Be careful not to raise the element more than 4 or 5 inches from the resting position.

• Clean with warm soapy water; rinse and dry with a clean soft cloth.

Lift-Off Oven Door:

The oven door is removable for cleaning. To remove:

Open the door to the fully opened position.

Pull up the lock located on both hinge supports and engage it in the hook of the hinge levers. You may have to apply a little downward pressure on the door to pull the lock fully over the hooks.

Grasp the door by the sides; pull the bottom of the door up and toward you to disengage the hinge supports. Keep pulling the bottom of the door toward you while rotating the top of the door toward the range to completely disengage hinge levers.

To replace: reverse the process above.

Cleaning the Inner Door:

• Soap and water should suffice; Heavy spattering or spillovers may require cleaning with a mildly abrasive cleaner.

Cleaning the Outer Door:

Use soap and water to thoroughly clean the top, bottom, sides, and front of the oven door; rinse well.

Do not let water drip into the vent openings.

CAUTION! Use caution when replacing the burner cap so the electrode is not damaged. This may cause a delayed ignition or prevent the burner from igniting.

ADVERTENCIA: El no seguir las indicaciones de este manual puede dar pie a incendios o explosiones, que ocasionen daños materiales, lesiones o la muerte.



No almacene ni utilice gasolina ni otros líquidos o gases inflamables alrededor de este o cualquier otro aparato.


No intente encender ningún aparato.

No toque ningún interruptor eléctrico; no utilice ningún teléfono de la casa.

Llame de inmediato a la compañía de gas desde el teléfono de un vecino. Siga las instrucciones de la compañía de gas.

Las tareas de instalación y mantenimiento debe realizarlas un técnico calificado, o bien un técnico de reparaciones o de la compañía de gas.



Antes de usar el horno, quítele toda la cinta y el material de empaque. Si quedan residuos de pegamento, elimínelos con el lado adhesivo de la cinta del empaque, o use un paño empapado en alcohol de frotación. Tenga cuidado; el alcohol de frotación es inflamable. Enjuague la superficie con agua tibia y séquela con una toalla.

Luego de desempacar la cocina, destruya la caja de cartón y las bolsas de plástico. Los niños no deben usar el material de empaque para jugar. Las cajas de cartón que vienen cubiertas con mantas, colchas o láminas de plástico pueden convertirse en cámaras herméticas. Quítele todas las grapas a la caja de cartón. Las grapas pueden ocasionar heridas graves y dañar el acabado de los aparatos o muebles con los que entre en contacto.

Actúe pensando en su seguridad. La preparación de alimentos en el horno requiere de temperaturas que pueden provocar quemaduras graves. Antes de usar este aparato o cualquier aparato nuevo, lea detenidamente y siga todas las instrucciones.


Instalación adecuada: Cerciórese de que el aparato ha sido bien instalado y puesto a tierra por un técnico calificado de acuerdo con la última edición de la Normativa nacional de gas combustible ANSI Z223 o, en Canadá, CAN/CGA B149.1 y CAN/CGA B149.2, y la última edición de la Normativa nacional eléctrica ANSI/NFPA n.º 70, o en Canadá, CSA Standard C22.1, Normativa eléctrica canadiense, parte 1, y los requisitos normativos locales. Lleve a cabo la instalación siguiendo exclusivamente las instrucciones de instalación incluidas en la documentación de esta cocina. Verifique que las patas niveladoras estén bien colocadas en las esquinas inferiores de la cocina. Si es necesario, regule la altura de las patas niveladoras ubicadas en la base de la cocina, girándolas hacia la izquierda o la derecha, para asegurar que la cocina quede bien nivelada.

Pida a su distribuidor que le recomiende un técnico calificado y un servicio de reparaciones autorizado. Pida al técnico que le muestre dónde se encuentran la válvula de desconexión manual del gas y el medidor de gas, por si necesita cortar el suministro de gas durante una emergencia.

ADVERTENCIA: Si no procede de acuerdo con las instrucciones acerca de las siguientes situaciones, se pueden producir daños materiales, lesiones o la muerte.


No deje solos a los niños: Los niños no deben quedarse solos o sin vigilancia en la zona en que se utiliza el aparato. Nunca hay que permitirles sentarse o ponerse de pie sobre ninguna parte del aparato.

No guarde objetos que atraigan a los niños en los armarios situados encima de la cocina o en la protección trasera de la misma. Si los niños se suben a la cocina para llegar a esos objetos, pueden sufrir lesiones importantes.



No permita a los niños trepar a la cocina ni jugar alrededor de la misma. El peso de un niño sobre la puerta abierta del horno puede provocar que la cocina se vuelque y se produzcan quemaduras o lesiones graves.

MANTENIMIENTO POR EL USUARIO : No repare ni cambie ninguna pieza de este aparato, salvo que específicamente se recomiende hacerlo en esta guía del propietario. Todas las reparaciones o mantenimientos los debe realizar un técnico calificado. Esto disminuirá el riesgo de lesiones a las personas y daños a la cocina.

Almacenamiento dentro o encima del aparato: no se deben guardar materiales inflamables en el interior del horno, en el cajón de calentamiento ni cerca de los quemadores. Ello incluye objetos de papel, plástico y tela, como libros de cocina, utensilios de plástico y trapos, así como líquidos inflamables. No guarde explosivos, como botes de aerosol, encima ni cerca de la cocina.

Quítele la puerta del horno a toda cocina que vaya a guardar o a desechar.

El pararse, recostarse o sentarse en las puertas o en la zona del asador de esta cocina puede ocasionar lesiones graves y daños a la cocina.

ADVERTENCIA: Las siguientes situaciones pueden resultar en daños materiales o lesiones


No toque los quemadores, las zonas proximas a éstos ni las superficies interiores del horno. Tanto los quemadores como los quemadores del horno pueden estar calientes aunque no se vean llamas. Las zonas cercanas a los quemadores pueden calentarse y provocar quemaduras. Durante el uso y después del mismo, no toque, ni deje que ninguna ropa u otros materiales inflamables toquen, ninguna de esas zonas, hasta que hayan tenido tiempo suficiente para enfriarse. Entre estas zonas está la encimera de la cocina, las superficies contiguas a la misma, las aberturas de ventilación del horno y las

Nunca utilice esta estufa para calentar ningún aposento. El hacerlo puede causar envenenamiento por monóxido de carbono y sobrecalentar el horno.

Use ropa apropiada; nunca debe llevar prendas holgadas o que cuelguen mientras usa esta aparato. No deje que la ropa y otros materiales inflamables hagan contacto con las resistencias o las superficies interiores del horno, hasta que las mismas hayan tenido tiempo suficiente para enfriarse.

Nunca modifique ni altere la estructura de la cocina. No quite las patas niveladoras, los paneles, las cubiertas de los cables, los soportes antivuelco ni ninguna otra pieza instalada permanentemente en el producto.

Al calentar grasa o aceite, vigílelos de cerca. La grasa o el aceite se pueden incendiar si se calientan demasiado.

No utilice agua ni harina si se incendia el aceite: sofoque el fuego con la tapa de una olla, o bien utilice bicarbonato o un extintor de espuma.

•Utilice únicamente agarradores secos: el uso de agarradores húmedos o mojados en superficies calientes puede provocar quemaduras a causa del vapor. Tenga cuidado de no tocar los quemadores con los agarradores. No utilice ninguna toalla ni trapos gruesos en lugar de los agarradores.

Utilice una llama de tamaño adecuado: ajuste el tamaño de la llama de forma que no sobresalga de los bordes del utensilio. El uso de utensilios demasiado pequeños dejará un parte de la llama del quemador expuesta al contacto directo, y puede quemar la ropa. La coincidencia de tamaño de los utensilios con la llama mejora además la eficiencia.

No use papel de aluminio para cubrir el fondo del horno, salvo en la manera que se sugiere en la sección de limpieza de este manual. El uso inadecuado del papel de aluminio puede implicar un peligro de incendio. Además, el papel puede afectar la circulación del calor y dañar la cocina.

Colocación de bandeja en el horno: coloque siempre la bandeja en la ubicación deseada con el horno frío. Si tiene que mover la bandeja con el horno caliente, tenga mucho cuidado. Utilice agarradores y sujete la bandeja con las dos manos para recolocarla. Retire todos los utensilios de la bandeja antes de sacarla.

No caliente recipientes de comida cerrados: el aumento de la presión puede hacer que el recipiente estalle y causar lesiones.

No obstruya los conductos de ventilación del horno: la ventilación del horno se encuentra debajo de la protección trasera. Si se tocan las superficies de esta zona cuando el horno está en marcha, pueden producirse quemaduras. Asimismo, no ponga objetos de plástico o sensibles al calor sobre la ventilación del horno ni cerca de la misma, ya que podrían fundirse o arder.

La cocina necesita una buena circulación de aire para lograr la combustión adecuada en los quemadores. No obstruya el flujo de aire alrededor de la base ni debajo del panel delantero inferior de la cocina.

Tenga cuidado al abrir la puerta del horno o el cajón de calentamiento: póngase al lado de la cocina para abrir la puerta del horno caliente. Deje que salga el aire caliente o el vapor antes de sacar alimentos del horno o meterlos.

Sepa qué mando controla cada quemador. Coloque una olla o sartén con alimentos sobre el quemador antes de encenderlo, y apáguelo antes de quitar el utensilio. Gire y presione siempre el mando hasta encender los quemadores. Compruebe visualmente que se ha encendido el quemador. Ajuste la llama de forma que no sobresalga de los bordes del utensilio.

Los mangos de los utensilios se deben girar hacia dentro, y no quedar por encima de los quemadores adyacentes: para reducir el riesgo de quemaduras, la ignición de materiales inflamables y los derrames debidos al contacto involuntario con el utensilio, el mango de los utensilios deben quedar hacia dentro, y que no sobresalgan por encima de los quemadores adyacentes.

Nunca deje los quemadores a fuego fuerte sin vigilancia: al hervir los líquidos, pueden desbordarse y provocar humo y manchas de aceite que pueden arder, o una olla que se haya quedado sin líquido puede fundirse.

Cuando vaya a quitar la puerta del horno, no meta las manos entre la bisagra a resorte y el marco de la puerta. Sus dedos podrían quedar atrapados.
