Sealed Burner Models

Your appliance may be equipped with any combination of the following burners:
Simmer Burner, this burner is best used for simmering delicate sauces, etc.
Standard Burner, can be used for most all surface cooking needs.
Large Burner, the larger burner is best used when bringing large quantities of liquid to temperature and when preparing larger
quantities of food.
Regardless of size, always select a utensil that is suitable for the amount and type of food being
prepared. Select a burner and flame size appropriate to the pan. Never allow flames to extend
beyond the outer edge of the pan.
Each burner lights automatically from an electric ignitor each time a control knob is turned to
the lite position.
To operate the surface burner:
1. Place cooking utensil on burner.
2. Push in and turn the Surface Control knob to LITE. Note: All electronic ignitors will click
at the same time. However, only the burner you are turning on will ignite.
3. Visually check that the burner has lit.
4. After the burner lights, turn the control knob to the desired flame size. The control knobs
do not have to be set at a particular mark. Use the guides and adjust the flame as needed.
DO NOT cook with the control knob in the LITE position. (The electronic ignitor will continue
to click if left in the LITE position.)
5. To turn the burner off, turn the control knob as far as it ill go, to the OFF position.
Electric Ignition Models
In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface burners can be lit manually. To light a surface burner, hold a lit match to
the burner head, then slowly turn the surface control knob to LITE. Use caution when lighting surface burners manually.
Surface burner in use when an electrical power failure occurs will continue to operate normally.
Do not operate the burner for an extended period of time without cookware on the grate. The finish on
the grate may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on top
of the cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Pot holders, towels or wood spoons could catch fire if placed
too close to a flame.
Venturi (opened) Burner Models
To Adjust Low or "Simmer" Setting (some models)
The burner flame, at low setting, can be adjusted if it is too high or too low; refer to
the installation instruction for adjustment procedure.
To Adjust Standing Pilot Model (some models)
Each burner lights automatically either an electric or a standing pilot, depending
on your model. Standing pilots must be lit initially. To light the standing pilot, open
gas supply on pilot shutoff valves (screw), lift the cooktop from the front edge and
hold a match near the pilot. Standing pilots will remain lit when the burners are
turned off; because of that, the porcelain enamel cooktop can be hot even if
burners are not used; refer to Installation Instructions for proper pilot adjustment.
Models with electric ignitors light automatically each time a control knob is turned
to the LITE position.
To operate the Surface Burner:
1. Place cooking utensil on burner.
2. Push in and turn the Surface Control knob to LITE. Note: All electronic ignitors
will click at the same time. However, only the burner you are turning on will ignite.
3. Visually check that the burner has lit.
4. After the burner lights, turn the control knob to the desired flame size. The control
knobs do not have to be set at a particular mark. Use the guides and adjust the
flame as needed. DO NOT cook with the control knob in the LITE position. (The
electronic ignitor will continue to click if left in the LITE position.)
