IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
NEVER use this appliance as a
space heater to heat or warm the room. Doing
so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning.
• DO NOT Use Water or Flour on Grease
Fires—Smother the ﬁ re with a pan lid, or use
baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type
• When heating fat or grease, watch it closely.
Fat or grease may catch ﬁ re if allowed to become
• Use Only Dry Potholders—Moist or damp pot
holders on hot surfaces may result in burns
from steam. DO NOT let the potholders touch the
ﬂ ame 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 ﬂ ame so it does not
extend beyond the edge of the utensil.
Use Proper Flame Size—Adjust
ﬂ ame size so it does not extend beyond the
edge of the utensil. The use of undersized utensils
will expose a portion of the burner ﬂ ame to direct
contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper
relationship of utensil to ﬂ ame will also improve
DO NOT use stove top grills on your
sealed gas burners. If you use a stove top grill
on a sealed gas burner, it will cause incomplete
combustion and can result in exposure to carbon
monoxide levels above allowable current standards.
This can be hazardous to your health.
Use proper pan size—This appliance
is equipped with one or more surface burners of
different sizes. Select utensils having ﬂ at 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 efﬁ ciency.
Please carefully read and save these instructions
This Use & Care Manual contains general operating instructions for your appliance and feature
information for several models. Your product may not have all the described features. The graphics

• Clean the appliance regularly to keep all parts
free of grease that could catch ﬁ re. Exhaust fan
ventilation hoods and grease ﬁ lters should be kept
clean. DO NOT allow grease to accumulate on
ﬁ lter. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch ﬁ re.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward
from Edges of Cooktop and Not Extend Over
Adjacent Surface Burners—To reduce the
risk of burns, ignition of ﬂ ammable 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.
