• Wear proper apparel—Loose-fitting or hanging
garments should never be worn while using the
appliance. Do not let clothing or other flammable
materials contact hot surfaces.
• Do not use water or flour on grease fires—Smother
the fire with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry
chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
• When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or
grease may catch fire if allowed to become too hot.
In case of fire or gas leak, be sure to
turn off the main gas shutoff valve.
• Use only dry potholders—Moist or damp potholders
on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do
not let potholders touch hot heating elements. Do not use
a towel or other bulky cloth instead of a potholder.
• Do not heat unopened food containers—Buildup of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in
• Remove the oven door from any unused range if it is
to be stored or discarded.
IMPORTANT—Do not attempt to operate the oven
during a power failure. If the power fails, always turn
the oven off. If the oven is not turns off and the power
resumes, the oven may begin to operate again. Food left
unattended could catch fire or spoil.
Use proper flame size—Adjust flame
size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the
utensil. The use of undersize utensils will exposed a
portion of the burner flame to direct contact and may result
in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to
flame will also improve efficiency.
Do not use stove top grills on the burner
grates of sealed gas burners. If you use a stove top grill on
a sealed gas burner, it will cause incomplete combustion
and can result in exposure to carbon monoxide levels
above allowable current standards. This can be hazardous
to your health.
Electronic controllers can be damaged
by cold temperatures. When you use your appliance
for the first time, or if it has not been used for a long
period of time, make sure that it has been exposed to a
temperature above 0°C/32°F for at least 3 hours before
connecting it to the power supply.
• Know which knob controls each surface heating
unit. Always turn the knob to the LITE position when
igniting the burners. Visually check that burner has lit.
Then adjust the flame so it does not extend beyond the
edge of the utensil.
• Use proper pan size. This appliance is equipped with one
or more surface burners of different sizes. Select utensils
having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface
burner. The use of undersized utensils will expose a
portion of the surface burner to direct contact and may
Important Safety Instructions
result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to
the surface burner will also improve efficiency.
• Utensil handles should be turned inward and not
extend over adjacent surface burners—To reduce the
risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage
due to unintentional contact with the utensil. The handle of
the utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward,
and does not extend over adjacent surface burners.
• Never leave surface burners unattended at high heat
settings—Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Protective liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line
oven bottom or any other part of the appliance. Only use
aluminum foil as recommended for baking if used as a
cover placed on the food. Any other use of protective
liners or aluminum foil may result in a risk of electric
shock or fire or short circuit.
• Glazed cooking utensils—Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for rangetop service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer's recommendations for rangetop use.
• Do not use decorative surface burner covers. If a
burner is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover
will become hot and possibly melt. Burns will occur if the
hot covers are touched. Damage may also be done to
the cooktop or burners because the covers may cause
overheating. Air will be blocked from the burner and
cause combustion problems.
• Do not clean or operate a broken cooktop—If cooktop
should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may
penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric
shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
• Clean cooktop glass with caution—If a wet sponge or
cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be
careful to avoid a steam burn. Some cleaners can
produce harmful fumes if applied to a hot surface.
• Avoid scratching the cooktop glass with sharp
• Use care when opening oven door or warmer drawer (if
equipped)—Stand to the side of the range when opening
the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before
you remove or replace food in the oven/ warmer drawer.
• Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. The oven vent is
located at the rear of the cooktop. Touching the surfaces in
this area when the oven is operating may cause severe
burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items on
or near the oven vent. These items could melt or ignite.
NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages
in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack with materials
such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the
oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Aluminum
foil linings may trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
