SELF-CLEANING OVENS
• Clean in the self-cleaning cycle only the parts
listed in this Use & Care Manual. 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.
• Do Not Clean Door Gasket—The door gasket is
essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to
rub, damage or move the gasket.
• The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING
YOUR RANGE
Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of
grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention
to the area around 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 the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning hoods.
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 fire.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR COOKTOP
• 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 flat 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 elements—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 units.
• Never leave surface elements 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.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement
Act requires the Governor of California to publish a list of
substances known to the state to cause cancer, birth
defects or other reproductive harm, and requires
businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such
substances.
