IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR
• 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
• 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.
Oven Vent Location
For models equipped with coil surface elements, the oven vent is located under the left
rear surface element. When the oven is on, warm air flows through the left rear
element. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good baking
results. DO NOT BLOCK THE OVEN VENT.
Arranging Oven Racks
ALWAYS ARRANGE OVEN RACKS WHEN THE OVEN IS COOL (PRIOR TO OPERATING THE OVEN). Always use oven
mitts when using the oven.
Removing & Replacing Oven Racks
To remove, pull the rack forward until it stops. Lift up front of rack and slide out. To replace, fit the rack onto the guides on
the oven walls. Tilt the front of the rack upward and slide the rack back into place.
Important Safety Instructions
Before Setting Oven Controls
The Element ON Indicator Light
The Coil Cook Top range is equipped with a surface control light that will glow on your range—
the Element ON indicator light. The Element ON indicator light (all models) located on the
control panel, will glow when any surface element is turned ON. A quick glance at this light after
cooking is an easy check to be sure all surface controls are turned OFF.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING
• Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that
could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area underneath
each surface element. Do not allow grease to accumulate.
• Kitchen cleaners and aerosols—Always follow the
manufacturer's recommended directions for use. Be aware
that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite
causing damage and injury.
• Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently—Grease should not be
allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter. Follow
manufacturer's instructions for cleaning.
COIL COOK TOP MODELS
• Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place—Absence
of these pans or bowls during cooking may subject wiring or
components underneath to damage.
• Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line surface unit
drip bowls, or reflector pans. 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
