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
control knobs are turned to IGNITE.
Before setting a control knob, place filled cookware on the grate.
Do not operate a burner using empty cookware or without
cookware on the grate.
To Set:
1. Push in and turn knob counterclockwise to IGNITE.
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.
REMEMBER: When range is in use or (on some models)
during the Self-Cleaning cycle, the entire cooktop area may
become hot.
Power Failure

IMPORTANT: Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and
ventilation air around the burner grate edges.
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. Keep spillovers out of the gas tube
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.
To Clean:
IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and
the oven and cooktop are cool. Do not use oven cleaners, bleach
or rust removers.
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.
