GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

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.

Use this appliance for its intended purpose as described in this Owner’s Manual.

Have your range installed and properly grounded by a qualified installer in accordance with the provided installation instructions. Any adjustment and service should be performed only by a qualified gas range installer or service technicians. Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of your range unless it is specifically recommended in this guide.

Your range is shipped from the factory set for use with natural gas. It can be converted for use with LP gas. If required, these adjustments must be made by a qualified technician in accordance with the installation instructions and local codes. The agency performing this work assumes responsibility for the conversion.

Have the installer show you the location of the range gas shut-off valve and how to turn it off if necessary.

Plug your range into a 120-volt grounded outlet only. Do not remove the round grounding prong from the plug. If in doubt about the grounding of the home electrical system, it is your responsibility and obligation to have an

ungrounded outlet replaced with a properly grounded, three prong outlet in accordance with the National Electrical Code. Do not use an extension cord with this appliance.

Before performing any service, unplug the range or disconnect the power supply at the household distribution panel by removing the fuse or switching off the circuit breaker.

Be sure all packing materials are removed from the range before operating to prevent ignition of these materials.

Avoid scratching or impacting glass doors, cooktops or control panels. Doing so may lead to glass breakage. Do not cook on a product with broken glass. Shock, fire or cuts may occur.

Do not leave children alone or unattended in an area where an appliance is in use. They should never be allowed to climb, sit or stand on any part of the appliance.

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

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING

WARNING

GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (cont’d)

Never block the vents (air openings) of the range. They provide the air inlets and outlets that are necessary for the range to operate properly with correct combustion. Air openings are located at the rear of the cooktop, at the top and bottom of the oven door, and at the bottom of the range under the warming drawer, lower oven drawer or kick panel.

Use only dry pot holders—moist or damp pot holders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let pot holders touch surface burners, burner grates, or oven heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth in place of pot holders.

Be careful not to touch hot surfaces of the range. Potentially hot surfaces include burners, grates, cooktop, backguard, oven and door interior and crevices around the oven door.

Do not heat unopened food containers. Pressure could build up and the container could burst, causing an injury.

Cook meat and poultry thoroughly - meat to at least an internal temperature of 160°F and poultry to at least an internal temperature of 180°F. Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against foodborne illness.

WARNING

KEEP FLAMMABLE MATERIALS AWAY FROM THE RANGE

Do not store or use flammable materials in an oven or near the cooktop, including paper, plastic, pot holders, linens, wall coverings, curtains, drapes and gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids.

Never wear loose-fitting or hanging garments while using the appliance. Avoid storing commonly used items in cabinets above the range and be careful when reaching over the range. Clothing in close proximity to burners or hot surfaces may ignite causing severe burns.

Do not let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate in or near the range. Grease in the oven or on the cooktop may ingnite.

Clean ventilating hoods frequently. Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter.

WARNING

IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE, TAKE THE FOLLOWING STEPS TO PREVENT THE FIRE FROM SPREADING

Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up a flaming pan. Turn the controls off. Smother a flaming pan on a surface burner by covering the pan completely with a well-fitting lid, cookie sheet or flat tray. If necessary, use a multipurpose dry chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.

If there is a fire in the oven during baking, turn the oven off and keep the door closed until the fire goes out. If necessary, use a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING

WARNING

COOKTOP SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Never leave the range unattended while a surface burner is ON. Foods, especially oily foods, may ignite resulting in fire that could spread to surrounding cabinets.

Never leave oil unattended while frying. If allowed to heat beyond its smoking point, oil may ignite resulting in fire that may spread to surrounding cabinets. Use a deep fat thermometer whenever possible to monitor oil temperature.

To avoid oil spillover and fire, use a minimum amount of oil when shallow pan-frying and avoid cooking frozen foods with excessive amounts of ice.

Use proper pan size and avoid pans that are unstable or easily tipped. Select cookware that is matched to the size of the burner. Burner flames should be adjusted so that they do not extend beyond the bottom of the pan. Excessive flames may be hazardous.

Always use the LITE position when igniting the top burners and make sure the burners have ignited.

When using glass/ceramic cookware, make sure it is suitable for cooktop service; others may break because of sudden changes in temperature.

To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage, the handle of a container should be turned toward the center of the range without extending over nearby burners.

When preparing flaming foods under a hood, turn the fan on.

Do not use a wok with a round metal support ring. The ring may trap heat and block air to the burner resulting in a carbon monoxide hazard.

Do not attempt to lift the cooktop if your range has sealed surface burners. Doing so may damage the gas tubing to the surface burners resulting in a gas leak and risk of fire.

Do not use aluminum foil to cover the grates or line any part of the cooktop. Doing so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning, overheating of the cooktop surfaces, or a potential fire hazard.

WARNING

OVEN SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

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.

Stand away from the range when opening the oven door. Hot air or steam which escapes can cause burns to hands, face and/or eyes.

Keep the oven free from grease build-up. Grease in the oven may ignite.

Place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact the hot heating element in the oven.

Place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot, be careful to avoid touching hot surfaces

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING

WARNING

OVEN SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (cont`t)

Pull the oven rack to the stop-lock position when loading and unloading food from the oven. This helps prevent burns from touching hot surfaces of the door and oven walls.

Do not leave items such as paper, cooking utensils or food in the oven when not in use. Items stored in an oven can ignite.

Do not leave items on the cooktop near the oven vent which is in the center of the backguard. Items may overheat resulting in a risk of fire or burns.

When using cooking or roasting bags in the oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.

Never broil with door open. Open-door broiling is not permitted due to overheating of control knobs.

WARNING

WARMING DRAWER/ LOWER OVEN DRAWER

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (Some Models)

The purpose of the warming drawer is to hold hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Bacteria will grow very rapidly in food that is between 40 and 140°F. Do not put cold food in the warming drawer. Do not keep food in the warming drawer for more than 2 hours. Failure to follow these instructions may result in foodborne illness.

Do not leave paper products, plastics, canned food or combustible materials in the drawer. They may ignite.

Do not touch the heating element or the interior surface of the drawer. These surfaces may be hot enough to cause burns.

Use care when opening the drawer. Open the drawer a crack and let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food. Hot air or steam that escapes can cause burns to hands, face and/ or eyes.

Do not use aluminum foil to line the warming drawer. Foil is an excellent heat insulator and will trap heat beneath it. This will upset the performance of the drawer and potentially cause a fire hazard.

OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS

USING THE GAS SURFACE BURNERS

Throughout this manual, features and appearance may vary from your model.

BEFORE LIGHTING A GAS BURNER

Make sure all burners are in place.

Make sure all grates on the range are properly placed before using any burner.

AFTER LIGHTING A GAS BURNER

Do not operate the burner for an extended period of time without cookware on the grate. The finish on the grate may discolor or chip without cookware to absorb the heat.

Be sure the burners and grates are cool before you place your hand, a pot holder, cleaning cloths or other materials on them.

HOW TO LIGHT A GAS SURFACE BURNER

 

 

• Make sure all the surface burners are placed in their respective positions.

 

 

• Push the control knob in and turn it to the LITE position.

 

 

• You will hear a little clicking noise - the sound of the electric spark igniting the burner.

 

 

• Turn the knob to adjust the flame size. If the knob stays at LITE, it will continue to click.

 

 

• When one burner is turned to LITE, all the burners spark. Do not attempt to

 

 

disassemble or clean around any burner while another burner is on. An electric shock

Push the control knob in and

may result, which could cause you to knock over hot cookware.

turn it to the LITE position.

 

HOW TO SELECT FLAME SIZE

WARNING

Flames that are not covered by cookware may present a risk of burns or clothing ignition. Never let flames extend beyond the sides of the cookware.

Watch the flame, not the knob, as you adjust heat. When fast heating is desired, the flame size on a gas burner should match the cookware you are using.

Flames larger than the bottom of the cookware will not result in faster heating and may be hazardous.

TOP-OF-RANGE COOKWARE

Aluminum: Medium-weight cookware is recommended because it heats quickly and evenly. Most foods brown evenly in an aluminum skillet. Use saucepans with tight-fitting lids when cooking with minimum amounts of water.

Cast-Iron: If heated slowly, most skillets will give satisfactory results.

Enamelware: Under some conditions, the enamel of some cookware may melt. Follow cookware manufacturer’s recommendations for cooking methods.

Glass: There are two types of glass cookware—those for oven use only and those for top-of-range cooking (saucepans, coffee and teapots). Glass conducts heat very slowly.

Heatproof Glass Ceramic: Can be used for either surface or oven cooking. It conducts heat very slowly and cools very slowly. Check cookware manufacturer’s directions to be sure it can be used on gas ranges.

Stainless Steel: This metal alone has poor heating properties and is usually combined with copper, aluminum or other metals for improved heat distribution. Combination metal skillets usually work satisfactorily if they are used with medium heat as the manufacturer recommends.

IN CASE OF POWER FAILURE

In case of a power failure, you can light the surface burners on your range with a match. Hold a lit match to the burner ports, then slowly turn the control knob to the LITE position. Use extreme caution when lighting burners this way.

Surface burners in use when an electrical power failure occurs will continue to operate normally.

OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS

USING THE OVEN

Throughout this manual, features and appearance may vary from your model.

OVEN CONTROLS

OVEN TEMP

POWER OUTAGE

Your oven is controlled by an OVEN TEMP knob. It can take up to 90 seconds before the

 

flame comes on.

After the oven reaches the selected temperature, the oven burner maintains the selected

 

temperature.

The oven or broiler cannot be lit during a power failure.

If the oven is in use when a power failure occurs, the oven burner shuts off. This is because the flow of gas is automatically stopped and will not resume until power is restored.

OVEN SHELF POSITIONS

To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the desired position before you turn the oven on.

Before you begin...

The shelves have stop-locks, so that when placed correctly on the shelf supports (A through D), they will stop before coming completely out, and will not tilt.

When placing and removing cookware, pull the shelf out to the bump on the shelf support.

WARNING

When you are using a rack in the lowest position (A), you will need to use caution when pulling the rack out. We recommend that you pull the rack out several inches and then, using two pot holders, pull the rack out by holding the sides of it. The rack is low and you can be burned if you put your hand in the middle of the rack and pull all the way out.

To remove a shelf, pull it toward you, tilt the front end up and pull it out.

To replace, place the end of the shelf (stop-locks) on the support, tilt up the front and push the shelf in. NOTE: The shelf is not designed to slide out at the special low shelf (A) position.

UPPER OVEN VENT

Plastic items on the cooktop may melt if left too close to the vent. Vent appearance and location can vary.

Your oven is vented through ducts at the rear of the range. Do not block these ducts when cooking in the oven - it is important that the flow of hot air from the oven and fresh air to the oven burner be uninterrupted. Avoid touching the vent openings or nearby surfaces during oven or broiler operations - they may become hot.

Handles of pots and pans on the cooktop may become hot if left too close to the vent.

Do not leave plastic or flammable items on the cooktop - they may melt or ignite if left too close to the vent.

Do not leave closed containers of the cooktop. The pressure in closed containers may increase, which may cause them to burst.

Metal items will become very hot if they are left on the cooktop, and could cause burns.

OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS

OVEN LIGHT

On some models: Use the switch on the lower control panel to turn the light on or off.

On some models: Press the Oven Light button found on the upper control panel to turn the light on or off.

THE TYPE OF MARGARINE WILL AFFECT BAKING PERFORMANCE

Most recipes for baking have been developed using high-fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you decrease the fat, the recipe may not give the same results as with a higher fat product.

Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries, cookies, or candies are made with low-fat spreads. The lower the fat content of a spread product, the more noticeable these differences become.

Federal standards require products labeled “margarine” to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low-fat spreads, on the other hand, contain less fat and more water. The high moisture content of these spreads affects the texture and flavor of baked goods. For best results with your old favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or stick spreads containing at least 70% vegetable oil.

USING THE OVEN FOR BAKING

To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the desired position before you turn the oven on.

HOW TO SET YOUR OVEN FOR BAKING

1.Close the oven door. Then turn the OVEN TEMP knob to the desired temperature.

2.Check to see if the food is done at the minimum time on the recipe. Cook longer if necessary. Turn the OVEN TEMP knob to OFF and remove the food.

OVEN SHELVES

Place most foods in the middle of the oven.

Arrange the oven shelf or shelves in the desired locations while the oven is cool. The correct shelf position depends on the kind of food and the browning desired.

As a general rule, place most foods in the middle of the oven, on either the shelf position B or C. See the chart for suggested shelf positions.

To preheat, set the oven at the correct temperature - selecting a higher temperature does not shorten the preheat time.

Preheat the oven for 10 minutes if the recipe calls for it. Preheat means bringing the oven up to the specified temperature before putting the food in the oven.

Preheating is necessary for good results when baking cakes, cookies, pastry and breads. For most casseroles and roasts, preheating is not necessary.

OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS

USING THE OVEN FOR BAKING

BAKING PANS

Use the proper baking pan. The type of finish on the pan determines the amount of browning that will occur.

Glass baking dishes also absorb heat. When baking in glass baking dishes, lower the temperature by 25 °F and use the recommended cooking time in the recipe. This is not necessary when baking pies or casseroles.

Dark, rough, or dull pans absorb heat resulting in a browner, crisper crust. Use this type for pies.

Shiny, bright and smooth pans reflect heat, resulting in a lighter, more delicate browning. Cakes and cooking require this type of pan.

PAN PLACEMENT

For even cooking and proper browning, there must be enough room for air circulation in the oven. Baking results will be better if baking pans are centered as much as possible rather than being placed to the front or to the back of the oven.

Pans should not touch each other or the walls of the oven. Allow 1 to 1 1/2 inches of space between pans as well as from the back of the oven, the door and the sides.

If you need to use two shelves stagger the pans so one is not directly above the other.

COOKIES

Flat cookie sheets (without sides) produce better-looking cookies. Cookies baked in a jelly roll pan (short sides all around) may have darker edges and pale or light browning may occur.

Do not use a cookie sheet so large that it touches the walls or the door of the oven. Never entirely cover a shelf with a large cookie sheet.

PIES

For best results, bake pies in dark, rough or dull pans to produce a browner, crisper crust.

Frozen pies in foil pans should be placed on an aluminum cookie sheet for baking, since the shiny foil pan reflects heat away from the pie crust; the cookie sheet helps retain it.

Check the recipe to make sure the pan size used is the one recommended.

CAKES

When baking cakes, warped or bent pans will cause uneven baking results and poorly shaped products.

A cake baked in a pan larger than the recipe recommends will usually be crisper, thinner and drier than it should be. If baked in a pan smaller than recommended, it may be undercooked and batter may overflow.

Check the recipe to make sure the pan size used is the one recommended.

DON’T PEEK

Set the timer for the estimated cooking time and do not open the door to look at your food. Most recipes provide minimum and maximum baking times such as “bake 30-40 minutes”.

DO NOT open the door to check until the minimum time. Opening the oven door frequently during cooking allows heat to escape and makes baking times longer. Your baking results may also be affected.

10

OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS

USING THE OVEN FOR BAKING

ALUMINUM FOIL

Do not use aluminum foil to line oven bottoms. The foil will trap heat below and upset the performance of the oven. Foil can melt and permanently damage the oven bottom. Damage from improper use of aluminum foil is not covered by the product warranty.

Foil may be used to catch spills by placing a sheet on a lower rack, several inches below the food. Do not use more foil than necessary and never entirely cover an oven rack with aluminum foil. Keep foil at least 1 to 1 1/2 inches from oven walls to prevent poor heat circulation.

OVEN MOISTURE

As your oven heats up, the temperature change of the air in the oven may cause water droplets to form on the door glass. These droplets are harmless and will evaporate as the oven continues to heat up.

USING THE OVEN FOR ROASTING

Roasting is cooking using dry heat. Tender meat or poultry can be roasted uncovered in your oven. Roasting temperatures, which should be low and steady, keep spattering to a minimum.

Roasting is really a baking procedure used for meats. Roasting is easy: just follow these directions:

1. Place the shelf in the A or B position. No preheating is necessary.

2. Check the weight of the meat. Place it fat side up (or for poultry, breast-side-up) on a roasting rack in a shallow pan. The melting fat will baste the meat. Select a pan as close to the size of the meat as possible. Line the pan with aluminum foil when using the pan for marinating, cooking with fruits, cooking heavily cured meats or basting food during cooking.

3. Turn the OVEN TEMP knob to the desired setting.

4. After roasting is complete, turn the OVEN TEMP knob to OFF and then remove the food from the oven.

Place the shelf in the A or

B position.

ADJUST THE OVEN THERMOSTAT - EASY TO DO YOURSELF

You may find that your new oven cooks differently than the one it replaced. Use you new oven for a few weeks to become more familiar with it. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the thermostat yourself.

Do not use thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores, to check the temperature setting of your oven. These thermometers may vary 20-40°F.

Note: This adjustment will not affect the broiling temperatures. The adjustment will be retained after a power failure.

Back of OVEN TEMP knob of OVEN TEMP knob

1.Pull the OVEN TEMP knob off the range and look at the back side. To make an adjustment, loosen (approximately one turn), but do not completely remove, the two screws on the back of the knob.

2.With the back of the knob facing you, hold the outer edge of the knob with one hand and turn the front of the knob with the other hand.

To increase the oven temperature, move the top screw toward the right. You will hear a click for each notch you move the knob.

To decrease the oven temperature, move the top screw toward the left.

Each click will change the oven temperature approximately 10°F. (The range is plus or minus 60°F from the arrow.) We suggest that you make the adjustment one click from the original setting and check oven performance before making any additional adjustments.)

3.After the adjustment is made, retighten screws so that they are snug, but be careful not to over-tighten.

4.Replace the knob, matching the flat area of the knob to the shaft, and check performance.

USING THE OVEN FOR BROILING

Broiling is cooking food by direct heat from above the food. Most fish and tender cuts of meat can be broiled. Follow these steps to keep spattering and smoking to a minimum.

Your range has a compartment below the oven for broiling. A specially designed broiler pan allows dripping fat to drain away from the food.

Both the oven door and broiler compartment drawer should be closed during broiling.

HOW TO SET YOUR OVEN FOR BROILING

1.You can change the distance of hte food from the heat source by positioning the broiler rack in the broiler compartment.

- A (bottom of broiler compartment), - B (center of broiler comparment), - C (top of broiler compartment).

Most broiling should be done in position A.

2.Preheat the broiler for best results.

3.If the meat has fat or gristle around the edge, cut vertical slashes through it about 2 inches apart, but don’t cut into the meat. We recommend that you trim the fat to prevent excessive smoking, leaving a layer about 1/8 inch thick.

4.Close the oven door and broiler compartment drawer.

5.Turn the OVEN TEMP knob to BROIL.

6.Turn most foods once during cooking. Time foods for about one-half the total cooking time, turn food, then continue to cook to completion.

7.Turn the OVEN TEMP knob to OFF. Remove the broiler pan from the broiler rack and serve the food immediately. Leave the pan outside the range to cool.

12

OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS

USING THE OVEN FOR BROILING (cont’d)

HOW TO SET THE BROILER COMPARTMENT (on some models)

Both the oven and broiler compartment doors must be closed during broiling.

Turn most foods once during cooking (the exception is thin fillets of fish; oil one side, place that side down on the broiler grid and cook without turning until done). Time foods for about onehalf the total cooking time, turn food, then continue to cook until done.

1. You can change the distance of the food from the heat source by positioning the broiler pan and grid on one of three rack positions in the broiler compartment - A (bottom of broiler compartment), B (middle) and C (top).

2.Preheating the broiler or oven is not necessary and can produce poor results.

3.If meat has fat or gristle around the edge, cut vertical slashes through both about 2 inches apart. If desired, the fat may be trimmed, leaving a layer about 1/8 inches thick.

4.Arrange the food on the grid and position the broiler pan on the appropriate rack in the oven or broiling compartment. Placing food closer to the flame increases exterior browning of the food, but also increases spattering and the possibility of fats and meat juices igniting.

5.Close the oven and broiler compartment door.

6.Turn the OVEN CONTROL knob to BROIL.

7.When broiling is finished, turn the OVEN CONTROL knob to OFF. Remove the broiler pan from the broiler compartment and serve the food immediately. Leave the pan outside the range to cool.

ALUMINUM FOIL

You can use aluminum foil to line your broiler pan and broiler grid. However, you must mold the foil tightly to the grid and cut slits in it just like the grid.

BROILING COMPARTMENT GUIDE SUGGESTIONS

Both the oven and broiler compartment doors must be closed during broiling.

Always use the broiler pan and grid that comes with your range. It is designed to minimize smoking and spattering by trapping juices in the shielded lower part of the pan.

For steaks and chops, slash fat evenly around the outside edges of the meat. To slash, cut crosswise through the outer fat surface just to the edge of the meat. Use tongs to turn the meat over to prevent piercing the meat and losing juices.

If desired, marinate meats or chicken before broiling; or you can brush with barbecue sauce in the last 5-10 minutes only.

When arranging the food on the pan, do not let fatty edges hang over the sides because dripping fat could soil the oven.

The broiler compartment does not need to be preheated. However, for very thin foods, or to increase browning, preheat if desired.

Frozen steaks can be broiled by positioning the rack at the next lowest rack position and increasing the cooking time given in this guide 1 1/2 times per side.

13

OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS

USING THE OVEN FOR BROILING (cont’d)

BROILING COMPARTMENT GUIDE SUGGESTIONS (cont’d)

The USDA recommends the following minimum safe internal temperatures:

Raw beef, pork, lamb and veal steaks or chops: 145 °F as measured with a food thermometer before removing meat from the heat source. For safety and quality, allow meat to reast for at least three minutes before carving or consuming.

Raw ground beef, pork, lamb or veal: 160 °F as measured with a food thermometer.

Poultry: 165 °F as measured with a food thermometer.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

CARE AND CLEANING OF THE RANGE

Be sure electrical power is off and all surfaces are cool before cleaning any part of the range.

Proper care and cleaning are important so that your range will give you efficient and satisfactory service. Follow these directions carefully in caring for your range to assure safe and proper maintenance.

WARNING

If your range is removed for cleaning, servicing or any reason, be sure the anti-

tip device is re-engaged properly when the range is replaced. Failure to take this precaution could result in tipping of the range and cause injury.

To check if the bracket is installed and engaged properly, carefully tip the range

forward. The bracket should stop the range within 4 inches. If it does not, the bracket must be reinstalled.

If the range is pulled from the wall for any reason, always repeat this procedure to verify that the range is properly secured by the anti-tip bracket.

LIFT-UP COOKTOP (on models with standard twin burners)

Clean the area under the cooktop often. Built-up soil, especially grease, may catch on fire.

To make cleaning easier, the cooktop may be lifted up.

NOTE: Do not lift the cooktop on sealed burner models. Lifting the cooktop can lead to damage and improper operation of the range.

Some models have dual support rods that will hold the cooktop up while you clean underneath it.

To raise the cooktop:

1.Be sure the burners are turned off.

2.Remove the grates.

3.Grasp the two front burner wells and lift up.

Clean under the cooktop with hot, soapy water and a clean cloth. If you removed your surface burners while cleaning, make sure they are properly seated when replacing them.

After cleaning, lower the cooktop (be careful not to pinch your fingers).

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

CARE AND CLEANING OF THE RANGE

BURNER GRATES

Your range has two or three professional-style double grates. These grates are position-

specific. For maximum stability, these grates should only be used in their proper position; they

cannot be interchanged left to right or front to back. For convenience, the undersides of the left and right grates are marked “LEFT FRONT” and “RIGHT FRONT”. Make sure the front portion of both grates is in front. The middle grate has a bow in front. Make sure the bowed portion

is toward the front of the range. in addition, the middle grate is supported by the left nd right grates and must be installed LAST for stability.

Cleaning

Lift out when cool. Grates should be washed regularly and, of course, after spillovers. Wash them in hot, soapy water and rinse with clean water. When replacing the grates, be sure they are positioned securely over the burners.

Replace the grates so that continuous arcs are formed with the center ribs of all three grates.

Do not operate a burner for an extended period of time without cookware on the grate. The finish on the grate may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.

To get rid of burned-on food, place the grates in a covered container. Add 1/4 cup ammonia and let soak several hours or ovenight. Wash, rinse well and dry.

Although they are durable, the grates will gradually lose their shine, regardless of the best care you can give them. This is due to their continual exposure to high temperatures. You will notice this sooner with lighter color grates.

NOTE: Do not clean the grates in a a self-cleaning oven.

STANDARD TWIN BURNER ASSEMBLIES (on some models)

CAUTION

Do not operate the cooktop without all burner parts, drip pans (if so equipped) and grates in place.

For cleaning information on sealed burners, see section below. Sealed burner cooktops do not lift up.

On models with standard twin burners, the cooktop lifts up for easy access.

Turn all contols OFF before removing burner parts and rip pans (if so equipped).

The burner grates and drip pans can be lifted off, making them easy to clean.

The holes in the surface burners of your range must be kept clean at all times for proper ignition and an even, unhampered flame.

You should clean the surface burners routinely, especially after bad spillovers, which could clog these holes.

Wipe off surface burners. If heavy spillover occurs, remove the surface burners from the range. Burners lift out for cleaning. Lift up the cooktop and then lift out the surface burners.

To remover burned-on food, soak the surface burner in a solution of mild liquid detergent and hot water. Soak the surface burner for 20 to 30 minutes.

For more stubborn stains, use a cleanser. Rinse well to remove any traces of the cleanser that might clog the surface burner openings.

Do not use steel wool because it will clog the surface burner openings and scratch the surface burners. if the holes become clogged, clean them with a sewing needle or twist-tie.

Before putting the surface burner back, shake out excess water and then dry it thoroughly by setting it in a warm oven for 30 minutes. Then place it back in the range, making sure it is properly seated and level.

Check the flame pattern of each burner. If the flames are “jumpy” (not steady), clean the holes again with a sewing needle or twist-tie.

Clean these holes thoroughly on each side.

DRIP PANS (if so equipped)

Remove the grates an lift out the drip pans. Drip pans can be cleaned in a dishwasher or by hand.

When replacing the drip pans, make sure they are in the correct position.

Place them in a covered container. Add 1/4 cup ammonia and let soak several hours or overnight. Wash, rinse well and dry.

Cooktop Surface

To avoid damaging the porcelain-enamel surface of the cooktop and to prevent it from

becoming dull, clean up spills right away. Foods with a lot of acid (tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices, etc.) or foods with high sugar content could cause a dull spot if allowed to set.

• When the surface has cooled, wash and rinse. For other spills such as fat spatterings, wash with soap and water once the surface has cooled. Then rinse and polish with a dry cloth.

• NOTE: For stainless steel cooktops, refer to the Stainless steel surfaces section.

Oven Air Vents

• Never block the vents (air openings of the range. They provide the air inlet and outlet that are necessary for the range to operate properly with correct combustion.

• Air openings are located at the rear of the cooktop,

at the top and bottom of the oven door, and at the bottom of the range.

Vent appearance and location vary.

Lower Control Panel (Front Manifold Panel) and Knobs

 

• It is a good idea to wipe the control panel after each use of the oven. Use a damp cloth to

 

clean or rinse. For cleaning, use mild soap and water or a 50/50 solution of vinegar and

 

water. For rinsing, use clean water. Polish dry with a soft cloth.

 

• Do not use abrasive cleansers, strong liquid cleaners, plastic scouring pads or oven

 

cleaners on the control panel - they will damage the finish.

 

• Do not try to bend knobs by pulling them up or down or by hanging a towel or other such

Surface burner knob

loads. This can damage the gas valve shaft.

 

The control knobs may be removed for easier cleaning.

Make sure the knobs are in the OFF positions and pull them straight off the stems for

cleaning.

• The knobs can be cleaned in a dishwasher or they may also be washed with soap and water. Make sure the insides of the knobs are dry before replacing.

Replace the knobs in the OFF position to ensure proper placement.

Metal parts can be cleaned with soap and water. Do not use steel wool, abrasives, am-

monia, acids or commercial oven cleaners. Dry with a soft cloth.

• NOTE: Knobs are not interchangeable. Be sure to reinstall the knobs to the original loca-

tion.

3.On models so equipped, replace the knurled screw in the front of the oven bottom.

NOTE: If the oven bottom is replaced incorrectly, it may warp and cause undesirable baking results.

OVEN BOTTOM

The oven bottom has a porcelain-enamel finish. To make cleaning easier, protect the oven bottom from excessive spillovers by placing a cookie sheet on the rack below the rack you are cooking on. This is particularly important when baking a fruit pie or other foods with a high acid content. Hot fruit fillings or other foods that are highly acidic (such as tomatoes, sauerkraut and sauces with vinegar or lemon juice) may cause pitting and damage to the porcelain-enamel surface and should be wiped up immediately.

To clean up spillovers, use soap and water, an abrasive claner or soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse well to remove any soap.

BROILER COMPARTMENT

• The broiler pan is held in place in the broiler rack.

To remove the broiler pan:

1. Gently pull forward on the drop down broiler door.

2. Pull the broiler rack with pan forward until the rack stops. Grasp the broiler pan and remove it from the broiler rack.

To replace the broiler pan:

1.Slide the broiler pan onto the rack and push both the broiler pan and the rack all the way into the broiler compartment.

2.Close the broiler door.

If a spillover occurs int he broiler compartment, allow the compartment to cool first. You can clean the compartment with soap and water, a mild abrasive cleanser, soap-filled scouring pads or an oven cleaner following package directions.

TO CLEAN THE DOOR:

To clean the inside of the door:

Do not allow excess water to run into any holes or slots in the door.

Wipe dishwashing detergent over any baked-on spatters on the glass. Use a single sided safety razor blade to clean it off. Then wipe over the glass with a soapy cloth to remove any residue and dry off.

The area outside the gasket can be cleaned with a soap-filled plastic scouring pad.

To clean the outside of the door:

Use soap and water to thoroughly clean the top, sides and front of the oven door. Rinse well. You may also use a glass cleaner to clean the glass on the outside of the door.

Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato sauces and basting materials containing acids may cause discoloration and should be wiped up immediately. When the surface is cool, clean and rinse.

Do not use oven cleaners, cleansing powders or harsh abrasives on the outside of the door.

The gasket is designed with a gap at the bottom to allow for proper air circulation.

• Do not rub or clean the door gasket - it has an extremely low resistance to abrasion.

• If you notice the gasket becoming worn, frayed or damaged in any way or if it has become displaced on the door, you should have it replaced.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

PORCELAIN OVEN INTERIOR

• NOTE: Wait for range to cool before cleaning.

• With proper care, the porcelain enamel interior will retain its attractive finish for many years.

Soap and water will normally do the job. Heavy spattering or spillovers may require

cleaning with a mild abrasive cleanser. Soapy, wet pads may also be used. Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface. They may cause dull spots even after cleaning.

Household ammonia may make the cleaning job easier. Place 1/2 cup ammonia in a shallow glass pan and leave in a cold oven overnight. The ammonia fumes will help loosen the burned-on grease and food.

When necessary, you may use a commercial oven cleaner. Follow the package directions.

Cautions about using spray-on oven cleaners:

Do not spray the oven cleaner on the electrical controls and switches, because it could cause a short circuit and result in sparking or fire.

Do not allow a film from the cleaner to remain on the temperature sensor - it could cause the oven to heat improperly. (The sensor is located at the top of the oven.) Carefully wipe the bulb clean after each oven cleaning, being careful not to move the sensor since a change in its position could affect how the oven bakes.

Do not spray any oven cleaner on the outside oven door, handles or any exterior surface of the oven, cabinet or painted surfaces. The cleaner can damage these surfaces.

Painted Surfaces

Painted surfaces include the sides, control panel and door. Clean these with soap and water or a vinegar and water solution. Do not use commercial oven cleaners, cleansing powders, steel wool or harsh abrasives on any painted surface.

OVEN LIGHT REPLACEMENT (on some models)

WARNING SHOCK OR BURN HAZARD

Before replacing the oven light bulb, disconnect the electrical power to the range at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel. Failure to do so may result in electric shock or burn. Be sure to let the light cover and bulb cool completely.

Be sure to let the light cover and bulb cool completely.
