This symbol will help alert you to situations that may cause bodily injury or property damage.

Remove all tape and packaging wrap before using the cooktop. Destroy the carton and plastic bags after unpacking the cooktop. Never allow children to play with packaging material. Do not remove the model/serial plate attached to the cooktop.

Proper Installation—Be sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician in accordance with the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1 latest edition and the National Electrical Code ANSI/ NFPA No. 70—latest edition, and local code requirements. Install and/or adjust only per installation instructions provided in the literature package for this cooktop.

Ask your dealer to recommend a qualified technician and an authorized repair service. Know how to shut off gas supply at the meter and disconnect the electrical power to the cooktop at the circuit breaker or fuse box in case of an emergency.

User Servicing—Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the manuals. All other servicing should be done only by a qualified technician. This may reduce the risk of personal injury and damage to the cooktop.

Never modify or alter the construction of a cooktop by removing panels, wire covers, or any other part of the product.

Stepping or leaning on this cooktop can result in serious injuries and may also cause damage to

the cooktop. Do not allow children to climb or play around the cooktop.

Storage on Appliance—Flammable materials should not be stored on the cooktop, near surface burners. This includes paper, plastic and cloth items, such as cookbooks, plasticware and towels, as well as flammable liquids. Do not store explosives, such as aerosol cans, on the cooktop. Flammable materials may explode and result in fire or property damage.

Do not store items of interest to children in the cabinets above the cooktop.

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

DONOTTOUCHSURFACEBURNERS,GRATES,ORAREAS NEAR THESE BURNERS. Surface burners may be hot even though the flames are 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 and the surfaces facing the cooktop.

Wear Proper Apparel—Loose-fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while using the appliance. Do not let clothing or other flammable materials contact hot surfaces.

Never use your appliance for warming or heating the room.

DoNotUseWaterorFlouronGreaseFires—Smotherthe fire with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.

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

Use Only Dry Pot holders—Moist or damp pot holders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let the pot holders touch the flame or burners. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of a pot holder.

Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers—Buildup of pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.

Know which knob controls each surface burner. Always turn the knob to the LITE position when igniting the burners. Visually check that the burner has lit. Then adjust the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (continued)

Use Proper Flame SizeAdjust flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to flame will also improve efficiency.

Use proper pan size—This appliance is equipped with one or more surface burners of different sizes. Select utensils having flat bottom large enough to cover the surface burner. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the surface burner to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to the surface burner will also improve efficiency.

Utensil 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 utensil, the handle of the utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface burners.

Never Leave Surface Burners Unattended at High Heat Settings—Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.

Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line surface burner pans. Protective liners or aluminum foil may interfere with heat and air distribution, and combustion. Damage to the cooktop or personal injury may result.

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. Check the manufacturer's recommendations for cooktop use.

Do Not Use Decorative Surface Burner Covers. If a burner is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover will become hot and possibly melt. You will not be able to see that the burner is on. Burns will occur if the hot covers are touched. Damage may also be done to the cooktop or burners because the covers may cause overheating. Air will be blocked from the burner and cause combustion problems.
