Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or fire. Electric ignitors automatically light the surface burners when control knobs are turned to LIGHT.
To Clean: 1. Remove the burner cap from the burner base and clean according to “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.
Home Canning When canning for long periods, alternate the use of surface cooking areas, elements or surface burners between batches. This allows time for the most recently used areas to cool. Center the canner on the grate or largest surface cooking area or element.

Timed Cooking (on some models) WARNING Food Poisoning Hazard Do not let food sit in oven more than one hour before or after cooking. Doing so can result in food poisoning or sickness. Timed Cooking allows the oven to be set to turn on at a certain time of day, cook for a set length of time, and/or shut off automatically.

OVEN USE Baking and Roasting Before baking and roasting, position the racks according to the “Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. When roasting, it is not necessary to wait for the oven to preheat before putting food in, unless recommended in the recipe. To Bake or Roast: 1.
To Broil: 1. Open the broiler door and roll out the broiler pan and grid. 2. Place the broiler pan and grid so grease can drain down into the lower part of the broiler pan. 3. Place food on broiler pan. Then place the pan on the broiler rack and close the broiler door.
General Cleaning IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and the oven and cooktop are cool. Always follow label instructions on cleaning products. Do not wipe down any of the inside surfaces until the oven has completely cooled down. Applying a cool damp cloth to the inner door glass before it has cooled completely could result in the glass breaking.
Oven Door For normal range use, it is not suggested to remove the oven door. However, if necessary, follow these instructions. The oven door is heavy. Before Removing: 1. Use a putty knife or screwdriver and insert it at the bottom corner of the door stop clip.
