• Do not touch the oven during the self-clean cycle.
• Keep children away from oven during self-clean cycle.
• Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns.
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts
listed in this Use & Care Manual. Before self-cleaning
the oven, remove the broiler pan and any utensils or
foods from the oven.
• Do Not Use Oven Cleaners—No commercial oven
cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any part of the oven.
• Do Not Clean Door Gasket—The door gasket is
essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to
rub, damage or move the gasket.
• The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.
Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of
grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention
to the area around 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 the manufacturer's instructions for
cleaning hoods.
• 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.


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