Important
Safety Instructions
Gas ranges have been thoroughly tested for safe and efficient operation. However, as with any appliance, there are specific
installation
and safety precautions which must be followed to ensure safe and satisfactory operation.
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to persons, or damage when using
the range, follow basic precautions,
including
the following:

TO THE INSTALLER:
PLEASE LEAVE
THIS INSTRUCTION
BOOK WITH
THE UNIT.
TO THE CONSUMER:
PLEASE READ AND KEEP THIS BOOK FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
1. Install or locate the range only in
accordance with the provided
Installation
Instructions.
It is
recommended that the range be
installed by a qualified installer.
The range must be properly
connected to the proper gas
supply and checked for leaks. If
needed, the range must also be
properly connected to electrical
supply and grounded.
2. To reduce the risk of tipping of
the appliance, the appliance must
be secured by properly installed
anti-tip bracket(s). To check if the
bracket(s) is installed properly,
remove the storage drawer (see
page 8) and verify that the anti-tip
bracket(s) is engaged.
3. Gas fuels and combustion can
result in potential exposure to
chemicals known to cause cancer
or reproductive harm. For
example, benzene is a chemical
which is a part of the gas supplied
to the range. It is consumed in the
flame during combustion.
However, exposure to a small
amount of benzene is possible if a
gas leak occurs. Formaldehyde,
carbon monoxide and soot are by-
products of incomplete
combustion. Properly adjusted
burners with a bluish rather than
a yellow flame will minimize
incomplete combustion.
4. DO NOT operate the range if it is
not working properly, or if it has
been damaged.
5. DO NOT use the range for
warming or heating the room.
Persons could be burned or
injured, or a fire could start.
6. Use the range only for its intended
use as described in this manual.
7. DO NOT wear loose or hanging
garments when using the range.
They could ignite if they touch a
surface burner and you could be
burned.
8. DO NOT touch surface burners,
areas near burners or interior
surfaces of oven. Areas near
surface burners and interior
surfaces of an oven become hot
enough to cause burns. During
use, DO NOT touch, or let clothing
or other flammable materials
contact surface burners, areas
near surface burners or interior
surfaces of oven. Other surfaces of
the range may become hot enough
to cause burns; such as, the oven
vent opening, the surface near the
vent opening, the cooktop, the
oven door and window.
9. Make sure the utensils you use
are large enough to contain food
and avoid boil-overs and spill-
overs. Heavy splattering or spill-
overs left on a range can ignite
and burn you. Pan size is
especially important in deep fat
frying.
10. Turn pan handles inward, but not
over other surface burners. This
will help reduce the chance of
burns, igniting of flammable
materials, and spills due to
bumping of the pan.
11. Use only dry potholders. Moist or
damp potholders on surface
burners may result in burns from
steam. DO NOT let potholder
touch surface burners. DO NOT
use a towel or bulky cloth for a
potholder. They could catch on
fire.
12. Check to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe for use on the
cooktop. Only certain types of
glass, glass-ceramic, ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktops
without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature.
13. DO NOT use decorative covers or
trivets over the surface burners.
14. DO NOT heat unopened
containers. They could explode.
The hot contents could cause
burns and container particles
could cause injury.
