Electric range with induction cooktop
Hide thumbs


• Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil.
Exposed fat and grease could ignite.
• Do not touch a hot light bulb with a damp cloth.
Doing so could cause the bulb to break. Disconnect the
appliance or turn off the power to the appliance before
removing and replacing light bulb.
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of
grease that could catch fire. Exhaust fan ventilation
hoods and grease filters should be kept clean. Do not
allow grease to accumulate on hood or filter. Greasy
deposits in the fan could catch fire. When you are
flaming food under the hood, turn the fan on. Refer to
the hood manufacturer's instructions for cleaning.
• In the self-cleaning cycle, only clean the parts listed
in this Use and Care Guide. Before self-cleaning the
oven, remove the broiler pan and any utensils or foods
from the oven.

Induction Cooktop Features

Fast and Efficient- Induction cooking heats faster while using less energy. Induction power levels are quick to boil and
efficient when simmering.
A Cooler Cooktop- A unique feature of the Induction cooking is that whether elements are ON or recently turned OFF,
the cooktop will be cooler than radiant element ceramic cooktops. Virtually no wasted heat is produced since the heat
begins with the presence of a pan.
Easy Clean-ups- The cooler cooktop surface (when compared to a radiant cooktop) makes clean-ups easier. Spills resist
sticking or burning so they wipe up easier.
Magnetic Detector- The coil sensor automatically detects whether the pan is made of magnetic materials and eliminates
any accidental "turn-ONs", such as might occur from contact with a spatula or spoon
Pan Size Detection- The pan size recognition sensor automatically detects and adapts the Cooking Zones to the pan
sizes in use for consistent, more even cooking.
More Responsive - Induction cooktops are more responsive than their electric or gas counterparts because only the pan
heats. This type of cooking heats easier and will be just as responsive when reducing to a simmer.
The Cooking Zones may appear to be cool while turned ON and after they have been turned OFF. But the
glass surface may be HOT from residual heat transferred from the cookware and burns may occur if touched.
Important Safety Instructions
• 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.
• Remove oven racks. Oven racks color will change if
left in the oven during a self-cleaning cycle.
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.
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.
