Use Proper Flame Size—Adjust flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil. The
use of undersized utensils will expose 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 your 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.
use proper pan size. This cooktop can be equipped with one or more surface units 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 the surface heating unit to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship
of utensil to the surface unit will also improve efficiency.
• Know which knob controls each surface burner. Always turn the knob to the LITE position
when igniting the burners. Visually check that the burner has lit. Then adjust the flame so it
does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.
• Clean the appliance regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire.
Exhaust fan ventilation hoods and grease filters should be kept clean. Do not allow grease
to accumulate on hood or filter. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire. When flaming
food under the hood, turn fan on. Refer to hood manufacturer's instructions for cleaning.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface
Burners/Unit —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/Unit 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 any part of the cooktop, use aluminum
foil only to cover food during cooking. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk
of electric shock, or fire.
• 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 a burner/unit is accidentally turned on,
the decorative cover will become hot and possibly melt. You will not be able to see that the
burner is on. 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 blocked from
the burner/unit and cause combustion problems.
