IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING:
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical
shock, injury to persons, or damage when using the
range, follow basic precautions, including the
following:
WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF
TIPPING OF THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE
SECURED BY PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP
DEVICES. TO CHECK IF THE DEVICES ARE
INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE RANGE FORWARD,
LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET SECURELY
ATTACHED TO FLOOR, AND SLIDE RANGE BACK
SO REAR RANGE FOOT IS UNDER ANTI-TIP
BRACKET.
CAUTION:
Do not store items of interest to
children in cabinets above a range or on the
backguard of a range – children climbing on the
range to reach items could be seriously injured.
Proper Installation – Be sure the range is properly
installed and grounded by a qualified technician.
Never Use the Range for Warming or Heating the
Room.
Do Not Leave Children Alone – Children should not
be left alone or unattended in area where the range
is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or
stand on any part of the range.
Wear Proper Apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging
garments should never be worn while using the
range.
User Servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of
the range unless specifically recommended in the
manual. All other servicing should be referred to a
qualified technician.
Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials
should not be stored in an oven or near surface
units.
Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires – Smother fire or
flame or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
Use Only Dry Potholders – Moist or damp
potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let potholder touch hot heating
elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth.
DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS
NEAR UNITS – Surface units 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 contact surface units or
areas near units until they have had sufficient time
to cool. Among those areas are the cooktop and
surfaces facing the cooktop.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Use Proper Pan Size – The range is equipped with
one or more surface units of different size. 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
burner will also improve efficiency.
Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat
Settings – Boilover causes smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite.
Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in
Place – Absence of these pans or bowls during
cooking may subject wiring or components
underneath to damage.
Protective Liners – Do not use aluminum foil to line
surface unit drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as
suggested in the manual. Improper installation of
these liners may result in a risk of electric shock, or
fire.
Glazed Cooking Utensils – Only certain types of
glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other
glazed utensils are suitable for range-top service
without breaking due to the sudden change in
temperature.
Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not
Extend Over Adjacent Surface Units – To reduce the
risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and
spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil,
the handle of a utensil should be positioned so that
it is turned inward, and does not extend over
adjacent surface units.
Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements –
Heating elements should never be immersed in
water.
Do Not Cook on Broken Cooktop – If cooktop
should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may
penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of
electric shock. Contact a qualified technician
immediately.
Clean Cooktop With Caution – If a wet sponge or
cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area,
be careful to avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can
produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
Use Care When Opening Door – Let hot air or
steam escape before removing or replacing food.
Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers – Build-up
of pressure may cause container to burst and result
in injury.
