• Never leave surface burners 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
surface burner pans, or oven bottom, except as
suggested in this manual. 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 range top service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer's recommendations for cooktop use.
• 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.
• Do not use decorative surface burner covers. If a
burner 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 or burners because the covers may
cause overheating. Air will be blocked from the burner
and cause combustion problems.
• Do not clean or operate a broken cooktop—If cooktop
should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may
penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of
electric shock. Contact a qualified technician
• Clean cooktop glass with caution—If a wet sponge or
cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be
careful to avoid a steam burn. Some cleaners can
produce harmful fumes if applied to a hot surface.
• Avoid scratching the cooktop glass with sharp objects.
• Use care when opening oven door or
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
warm & serve
• Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. The oven vent is
located at the center rear of the cooktop. 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.
Important Safety Instructions
warm & serve
NEVER cover any slots, holes or pas-
sages in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack with
materials such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air
flow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide
poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may trap heat, causing a
fire hazard.
• Placement of oven/
racks. Always place oven racks in desired location
while oven/warm & serve drawer (if equipped) 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/warm & serve drawer
(if equipped). Remove all utensils from the rack before
• 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.
• Do not touch a hot light bulb with a damp cloth.
Doing so could cause the bulb to break. Disconnect the
appliance or turn off the power to the appliance before
removing and replacing light bulb.
• Clean the range 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 you are
flaming food under the hood, turn the fan on. Refer to the
hood manufacturer's instructions for cleaning.
• 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.
• In the self-Cleaning cycle only clean the parts listed
in this Use and Care Guide. Before self-cleaning the
oven, remove the broiler pan and any utensils or foods
from the oven.
• Do not use oven cleaners—No commercial oven
cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any part of the oven.
