Read all the instructions before using the appliance. Use the appliance only for
its intended purpose as described in these instructions.
Proper installation – Be sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded
by a qualified technician. A risk of tip-over exists when the appliance is not installed
in accordance with the installation instructions.
Do not operate the appliance if it is damaged or not working properly. If you received
a damaged product, contact your dealer or installer immediately.
Be sure to have the installer show you where and how to turn off the power supply
to the range (ie location of the main fuse or circuit breaker panel) and where and
how to turn off the gas supply to the range in an emergency.
Do not leave children alone – Children should not be left alone or unattended in the
area where the appliance is in use. They should never be allowed to play with the
appliance or to sit or stand on any part of the appliance.
Caution – for safety reasons, do not store items of interest to children in cabinets
above a range or at the back of the range – children climbing on the range to reach
items could be seriously injured.
Wear proper apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging garments should never be worn
while using the appliance.
User servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically
recommended in the manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified
technician. Technicians must disconnect the appliance from the power supply before
any servicing.
Storage in or on appliance – Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven or
near the cooktop.
Use care when opening the oven door – Let hot air or steam escape before removing
or replacing food.
Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed.
Keep rugs and mats well clear of the base of the range.
Placement of oven shelves – Always position shelves in the desired location while
the oven is cool (before preheating). If a shelf must be removed while the oven is
hot, do not let oven mitts or potholder contact the base of the oven or hot heating
elements in the oven.
Do not clean the oven gasket or use any oven-cleaning products on it. It is essential
for a good seal, which ensures that the oven operates efficiently. Care should be
taken not to rub, damage or move it.
Do not use oven cleaners, harsh/abrasive cleaning agents, waxes, or polishes in
a self-cleaning oven. No commercial oven cleaner, oven liner, or protective coating
of any kind should be used in or around any part of a self-cleaning oven.
Do not use harsh/abrasive cleaners, scourers or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven
door glass since they scratch the surface, which may result in the glass shattering.
Do not sit or stand on the oven door or place any heavy objects on it – doing so may
result in personal injury.
Be careful when reaching for items stored in cabinets above the appliance.
Safe food handling: leave food in the oven for as short a time as possible before
and after cooking. This is to avoid contamination by organisms which may cause
food poisoning. Take particular care during warmer weather.
Clean only the parts listed in this manual.
Do not use a steam cleaner to clean any part of the appliance.
Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air to the appliance.
Before self-cleaning the oven – Remove oven shelves, side racks, broiler pan and
all other cookware/utensils, and wipe up large food spills or grease deposits.
Before self-cleaning the oven –make sure you move any pet birds to another, closed
and well-ventilated room. Some pet birds are extremely sensitive to the fumes given
off during a self-cleaning cycle, and may die if left in the same room as the range
during such a cycle.
Do not use any cookware on the grill or griddle.
Top cover (lid) must be removed when the grill or griddle is in operation.
When using the grill or griddle, make sure the grease drip-pan is in place – absence
of this during use may subject wiring or components underneath to damage.
The oven(s), grill, and griddle of your range cannot be used in the event of a power
failure. Do not attempt to operate these during power failure.
Do not use aluminum foil to line any part of the oven or cooktop. This will cause heat
to be trapped underneath it. This trapped heat can upset the cooking performance
and damage the finish of the oven or cooktop parts.
Do not place any dishes, trays, water or ice directly on the oven floor during cooking,
as doing so will irreversibly damage the porcelain enamel finish.
For safety reasons, the cooktop burner flame size should be adjusted so it does not
extend beyond the edge of the cookware.
Use cookware of the appropriate size and construction for the type of cooking.
This appliance is equipped with burners of different sizes. Cookware must be matched
to the size of the burner. Select utensils with flat bottoms large enough to cover
the burner flames. The use of undersize utensils will expose a portion of the burner
flames to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationships
of utensil to burner will also improve efficiency.
Protective liners – Do not use aluminum foil to line grease drip-pans or oven bottoms.
Glazed cooking utensils – only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic,
earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for cooktop service without
breaking due to the sudden change in temperature.
Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend over adjacent cooktop burners
– To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to
unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a utensil should be positioned
so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent cooktop burners.
The Governor of California is required to publish a list of substances known to the
State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm and requires businesses
to warn customers of potential exposures to such substances.
WARNING!: This product emits exhaust that contains chemicals known to the State
of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and other reproductive harm. To reduce
the risk from such chemicals, make sure this appliance is installed, operated, and
maintained according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Conditioning the oven
Conditioning will burn off any manufacturing residues and ensure that you get the best
results right from the start.
1 Insert all the shelves. See ‘Positioning the shelves’ for instructions.
2 Turn on the ventilation hood above your range on high.
3 Heat the empty oven at 450
F / 232
C for:
30 minutes using BAKE
30 minutes using BROIL (some ovens only).
See sections ‘Using your oven for baking and roasting’ and ‘Using your oven for broiling’
for instructions.
There will be a distinctive smell while you are conditioning the oven. This is normal,
but make sure the kitchen is well ventilated during the conditioning.
4 Once cooled, wipe out the oven with a damp cloth and mild detergent, and dry
If your range has a secondary oven, make sure you condition this also, following the
steps above.
Seasoning the griddle
1 Clean the griddle thoroughly with hot, soapy water to remove any protective coating.
2 Rinse with a mixture of 1 cup water and ¼ cup white vinegar, then dry thoroughly.
3 Pour 1 tsp vegetable (but not corn) oil into the center of the griddle, then rub it over
its entire surface, using a soft, heavy cloth.
4 Turn the griddle knob counterclockwise to 350
F / 177
5 When the oil begins to smoke, turn the knob clockwise back to OFF and allow the
griddle to cool.
6 Repeat steps 3 to 5.
7 Wipe the entire surface of the griddle using a soft, heavy cloth.
8 Apply a very thin layer of vegetable (but not corn) oil.
9 Check the grease drip-pan and clean if necessary. Discard any liquid or soiling that
may have collected in the grease drip-pan during the conditioning.
The griddle is now ready to use.
For best results, re-season the griddle after long periods of non-use.
Note: the griddle will darken with use. This is normal.
Main oven shelves
The wire shelves and slides are built
together as one unit.
When positioned correctly, the slides
will prevent the wire shelves from tilting
when pulled forward.
Beware: these shelves are heavy.
If you have an RDV2 model, never
leave these shelves in the oven during
a CLEAN cycle. If you do, they will no
longer slide smoothly.
Positioning the shelves
Shelf positions are numbered from the bottom.
Position the shelves you will need before turning the oven on.
For advice on which shelf position to use, see sections ‘Oven modes’, ‘Oven cooking
guidelines’, and ‘Cooking charts’.
Always position the oven shelves before turning the oven on. Remove any unused
shelves and baking utensils from the oven.
Secondary oven shelves
These shelves have safety stops to
keep them from sliding out of the oven
when pulled forward.
