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 racks: Always place an oven rack in the desired location while the oven is cool. If a 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.

Do not touch a hot oven light bulb with a damp cloth, as it could break. Disconnect the electrical service cord or shut off the power to the oven before removing and replacing the bulb.

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

half-cooked, 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.


Danby DR3099WGLP, DR3099BLGLP User Manual


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.

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.

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

Preheating: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 Racks:The oven racks should be arranged before the oven is turned “ON”. Place the racks so the food is centered in the oven.

Recommended Rack Positions for

Broiling, Baking, and Roasting


1 Broiling meats, chicken or fish

1 or 2 Cookies, cakes, pies, biscuits and muffins

2Frozen pies, angel food cake, yeast bread, casseroles, small cuts of meat or poultry

2Turkey, roast or ham

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 Racks:

The oven racks should be arranged before the oven knob is turned to an “ON” position. Place the racks 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. It is best to use two racks and place food so one dish is not directly over another.

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 racks 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 as well as glass windows in oven doors.
