tHese units, oven Heating elements or
interior surFaces oF tHe oven or Warmer
DRAWER (if equipped). Both surface units and oven
heating elements may be hot even though they are
dark in color. Areas near surface units may become
hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do
not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials
touch these areas until they have had sufficient time
to cool. Among these areas are the cooktop, surfaces
facing the cooktop, the oven vent openings and
surfaces near these openings, oven door and window.
• 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.
NEVER use your appliance as a space heater to
heat or warm the room.
• 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.
• Use Only Dry Pot holders. Moist or damp pot
holders on hot surfaces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let the pot holders touch hot surface
units. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of
a pot holder.
• Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers. Buildup
of pressure may cause the container to burst and
result in injury.
• Remove the oven door from any unused
appliance if it is to be stored or discarded.
Do not attempt to operate the appliance during a
power failure. If the power fails, always turn off
the unit. If the unit is not turned off and the power

reset the clock and the oven function.
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.
imPortant instructions For using
• Know which knob controls each surface heating
unit. Place pan of food on the element before turning
it on, and turn the element off before removing the
• 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 unit. The use of undersized utensils will expose
a portion of surface heating unit to direct contact and
may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of
utensil to the surface will also improve efficiency.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward
and Should Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface
units—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 unit.
• Do not use Searing Grill on the cooktop—The
Searing grill is not designed for use on the cooktop.
Doing so may result in a fire.
• Never Leave Surface Units Unattended—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 as recommended for baking if used as a
cover placed on the food. Any other used of protective
liners or aluminum foil may result in a risk of electric
shock or fire or a short circuit.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktop service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer's recommendations for cooktop use.
• Do Not Use Decorative Surface Burner Covers.
If an element 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.
