White-Westinghouse ES100 User Manual

Important Safety Instructions

Stepping, leaning or sitting on the doors or drawers of this range can result in serious injuries and also cause damage to the range. Do not allow children to climb or play around the range. The weight of a child on an open door may cause the range to tip, resulting in serious burns or other injury.

Do not use the oven or warmer drawer (if equipped) for storage.

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


the Room.

Storage in or on Appliance—Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven, warmer drawer, near surface units or in the storage drawer. 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 or near the range.

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


Both surface units and oven heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near surface units 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 cook top, surfaces facing the cook top, the oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings, oven door and window.


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.

Do Not Use Water or Flour on Grease Fires—Smother the 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 Potholders—Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholders touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of a potholder.

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

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

IMPORTANT—Do not attempt to operate the range during a power failure. If the power fails, always turn off the range. If the range is not turned off and the power resumes, the range will begin to operate again. Once the power resumes, reset the clock and oven function.


Know which knob controls each surface heating unit. Place a pan of food on the unit before turning it on, and turn the unit off before removing the pan.

Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped with one or more surface units of different sizes. Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating element. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the heating element to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to element will also improve efficiency.

Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface Elements—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 units.

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

Do Not Immerse or Soak Removable Heating Elements—

Heating elements should never be immersed in water. Heating elements clean themselves during normal operation.

Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass, glass/ ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for cook top service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for cook top use.

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

Important Safety Instructions


Use Care When Opening Oven Door or Warmer Drawer (if equipped)—Stand to the side of the range when opening the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or replace food in the oven.

Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven vent is located under the left rear surface element if your model is equipped with coil elements. The oven vent is located below the backguard for models equipped with ceramic-glass cook tops. Touching the surfaces in this area when the oven is operating may cause severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on or near the oven vent. These items could melt or ignite.

Placement of Oven Racks. Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot use extreme caution. Use potholders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot heating elements in the oven. Remove all utensils from the rack before moving.

Do not use the broiler pan without its insert. The broiler pan and its insert allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler.

Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil. Exposed fat and grease could ignite.

Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or fire.


Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area underneath each surface element. Do not allow grease to accumulate.

Kitchen cleaners and aerosols—Always follow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for use. Be aware that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing damage and injury.

Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently—Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.



Do Not Cook on Broken Cook Top—If cook top should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cook top and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.

Clean Cook Top with Caution—If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to avoid a steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.


The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.

Before Setting Oven Controls

Element ON & Hot Surface Indicator Lights

The Ceramic Glass Cooktop range is equipped with two different surface control lights that will glow on your range— the Element ON indicator light and a Hot Surface indicator light.

The Element ON indicator light located on the control panel, will glow when any surface element is turned ON. A quick glance at this light after cooking is an easy check to be sure all surface controls are turned OFF.

The Hot Surface indicator light located on the control panel, will glow as the surface cooking area heats up and will REMAIN ON until the glass cooktop has cooled to a MODERATE level.

Oven Vent Location

For models equipped with ceramic glass cooktops, the oven vent is located under the left rear side of the control panel. When the oven is on, warm air is released through the vent. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good baking results. DO NOT BLOCK OVEN VENT.

Arranging Oven Racks
