WARNING
Fire Hazard
Do not let the burner flame extend beyond the edge of
the pan.
Turn off all controls when not cooking.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death
or fire.
Electric igniters automatically light the surface burners
when control knobs are turned to Ignite.
Before setting a control knob, place filled cookware on
the grate. Do not operate a burner using empty cookware
or without cookware on the grate.
To Use:
1. Push in and turn knob counterclockwise to Ignite.
All surface burners will click. Only the burner with the
control knob turned to Ignite will produce a flame.
2. Turn knob to anywhere between HIGH and LOW.
REMEMBER: When range is in use, the entire cooktop area
may become hot.
Power Failure
In case of prolonged power failure, the surface burners can
be lit manually. Hold a lit match near a burner, and then turn
knob counterclockwise to Ignite. After burner lights, turn
knob to setting.

Surface Burners

IMPORTANT: Do not obstruct the flow of combustion
and ventilation air around the burner grate edges.
Burner Cap: Always keep the burner cap in place when using
a surface burner. A clean burner cap will help avoid poor ignition
and uneven flames. Always clean the burner cap after a spillover,
and routinely remove and clean the caps according to the
"General Cleaning" section.
NOTE: Each round burner base is marked with a letter indicating
the burner size.
Alignment: Be sure to align the gas tube opening in the burner
base with the orifice holder on the cooktop and the igniter
electrode with the notch in the burner base.
NOTE: Each round burner base is marked with a letter indicating
the burner size.

A. Burner cap
B. Gas tube opening
C. Burner base
Gas Tube Opening: Gas must flow freely throughout the gas
tube opening for the burner to light properly. Keep this area free
of soil, and do not allow spills, food, cleaning agents, or any other
material to enter the gas tube opening. Keep spillovers out of the
gas tube opening by always using a burner cap.
Burner Ports: Check burner flames occasionally for proper size
and shape as shown in the previous illustration. A good flame is
blue in color, not yellow. Keep this area free of soil, and do not
allow spills, food, cleaning agents, or any other material to enter
the burner ports.
To Clean:
IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off
and the cooktop is cool. Do not use oven cleaners, bleach, or
rust removers. Do not wash in the dishwasher.
1. Remove the burner cap and the burner base, and clean
according to the "General Cleaning" section.
2. Clean the gas tube opening with a damp cloth.
3. Clean clogged burner ports with a straight pin as shown.
Do not enlarge or distort the port. Do not use a wooden
toothpick. If the burner needs to be adjusted, contact
a trained repair specialist.
