Before you call
Solutions
to Common
Problems
Before you call for service,
review this list. It may save you time and expense. The list includes common occurrences that
are not the result of defective workmanship or materials in this appliance. You will be charged fora service call while the appliance
is in warranty if the problem is not caused by defective product workmanship or materials.
Your new appliance is a carefully engineered product. Many times, what appears to be a reason to call for service requires
nothing more than a simple adjustment you can easily make in your own home or is normal operating characteristic of appliance
under certain conditions.
This list is applicable to a variety of models; some of the items will not necessarily apply to your appliance.
OCCURRENCE
POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION
Range is not level.
Cannot move appliance
easily. Appliance must be
accessible for service.
Entire range or oven does
not operate.
* Oven control beeps and
displays F error code
(1) Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven rack.
Adjust leveling legs at base of range until the rack is level. When range is level, cooktop
may appear out of alignment if countertop is not level. (2) Weak, unstable floor. Be sure
floor is level and can adequately support range. Contact a carpenter to correct sagging or
sloping floor. (3) Kitchen cabinet misalignment may make range appear to be unlevel. Be
sure cabinets are square and have sufficient room for range clearance.
(1) Cabinets not square or are built in too tight. Contact a cabinet maker to correct the
problem. (2) Contact builder or installer to make appliance accessible. (3) Carpeting
interferes with range. Provide sufficient space so range can be lifted over carpet.
(1) Make sure cord/plug is tightly into outlet. (2) Service wiring is not complete. (3) Power
outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric company for service.
(1) This oven is equipped with a state of the art electronic oven controller. Among the many
features is a full time oven circuit diagnostics system. The controller constantly monitors
the internal circuitry as well as several crucial oven circuits to insure they are all operating
correctly. If at any time one of these systems fails, the controller will immediately stop the
current operation and beep continuously (flashing an error code of "F1, F2, F3", or"F9" in
the controller display window. (2) Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press
STOP/CLEAR to clear the display and stop the beeping. Reprogram oven. If fault remains,
record fault number. Press STOP/CLEAR and contact authorized servicer.
Oven light does not work.
(1) Replace or tighten bulb. See Changing Oven Light in this owner's Guide for instructions.
Surface unit does not heat.
(1) No power to the appliance. Check steps under"Entire
Range or Oven Does Not Oper-
ate" in this Before you Call checklist. (2) incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct
control is on for the surface unit to be used.
Surface units too hot or not
hot enough.
Drip bowls are pitting or
rusting.
Drip bowls turning color or
distorted out of shape.
Scratches or abrasions on
cooktop surface.
(1) incorrect control setting. Make sure the correct control is on for the surface unit to be
used. (2) Lightweight or warped pans used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or
heavyweight cookware. Flat pans heat better than warped pans. Cookware materials and
weight of the material affect heating. Heavy-and medium- weight pans heat evenly. Because
lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may burn easily.
(1) Foods with acids, such as tomatoes, if allowed to stand in/on bowls will cause corro-
sion. Remove and wash drip bowls as soon as possible after spillover. (2) Normal environ-
ment. Houses along sea coast are exposed to salt air. Protect bowls as much as possible
from direct exposure to salt air.
(1) Bottom surface of cookware extends beyond surface elements and touches cooktop
surface. This can cause high enough temperatures to discolor the drip bowls. DO NOT use
cookware of this type. Pan sizes should be matched to the size of the element. Replace-
ment drip bowls may be purchased from your dealer.
(1) Coarse particles such as salt or sand between cooktop and utensils can cause
scratches. Be sure cooktop surface and bottoms of utensils are clean before usage. Small
scratches do not affect cooking and will become less visible with time. (2) Cleaning
materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been used. See "Cooktop
Cleaning - Ceramic Glass Cooktop Models" section under General Cleaning. (3) Cookware
with rough bottom has been used. Use smooth, flat-bottomed cookware.
