IMPORTANT
INSTRUCTIONS
FOR USING YOUR
COOK TOP
• Know which knob controls each surface heating unit. Place
a pan of food on the unit before turning it on, and turn the unit
off before removing the pan.
• Use Proper Pan Size--This appliance
is equipped with one or
more surface units of different sizes. Select utensils having fiat
bottoms
large enough to cover the surface unit heating element.
The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the
heating element to direct contact and may result in ignition of
clothing.
Proper relationship of utensil to element will also
improve
efficiency.
• Utensil
Handles Should
Be Turned Inward
and Not Extend
Over Adjacent
Surface
Units--To
reduce the risk of burns,
ignition of flammable materials, and spillagedueto
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 units.
• Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat Settings--
Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite, or
a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Do Not Immerse
or Soak Removable
Heating
Elements--
Heating elements should never be immersed in water. Heating
elements clean themselves during
normal operation.
• Glazed Cooking
Utensils--Only
certain types of glass, glass/
ceramic,
ceramic,
earthenware,
or other
glazed
utensils
are
suitable for cook top service without
breaking due to the sudden
change
in
temperature.
Check
the
manufacturer's
recommendations for cook top use.
• When flaming foods under a ventilating
hood, turn the fan
On.
OVEN
*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.
• Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.
The oven vent is located
under the left rear surface element
if your model is equipped
with coil elements. The oven vent is located below the backguard
for models equipped with ceramic-glass cook tops. 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.
• Placement
of Oven Racks. Always place oven racks in desired
location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is
hot use extreme caution. Use potholders
and grasp the rack with
both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders
contact the hot
heating elements in the oven. Remove all utensils from the rack
before moving.
• Do not use the broiler pan without
its insert. The broiler pan
and its insert allow dripping
fat to drain and be kept away from
the high heat of the broiler.
• Do not cover the broiler insert with aluminum foil. Exposed
fat and grease could ignite.
• Protective
Liners--Do
not use aluminum
foil to line the oven
bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended
in this manual.
Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric
shock, or fire. Improper installation of these liners may result in
risk of electric shock, or fire.
