Cooktop Controls

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

Before setting a control knob, place filled cookware on the grate.
Do not operate a burner using empty cookware or while the grate
is unoccupied.
To Set:

All 4 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. Use the

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.
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. Protect it from spillovers
by always using a burner cap.

Burner ports: Check burner flames occasionally for proper size
and shape as shown above. 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.
