Positioning Racks and Bakeware

REMEMBER: When cooktop is in use, the entire cooktop
area may become hot.
Coil Elements and Burner Bowls
Coil elements should be level for optimal cooking results. Burner
bowls, when clean, reflect heat back to the cookware. They also
help catch spills.
Cookware should not extend more than ½" (1.3 cm) over the coil
element. If cookware is uneven or too large, it can produce excess
heat, causing the burner bowl to change color.
Cooktop On Indicator Light
The Cooktop On indicator light is located on the console panel.
When any control knob on the console panel is turned on, the
Cooktop On indicator light will glow.


Oven Light Switch (on some models)
On models with control knobs located on the back panel of the
range, the oven light switch is located on the top left corner of the
range. On models with control knobs located on the front panel of
the range, the oven light switch is located on the left side of the
front console.
Oven Heating Indicator Light
The Oven Heating indicator light, located on the console panel, will
glow when either the Bake or Broil function is turned on.

For best cooking results, do not cover entire oven rack with foil
because air must be able to move freely.
