IMPORTANT
INSTRUCTIONS
FOR
USING
YOUR COOKTOP
Use Proper Flame Size--Adjust
flame size so
it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil. The use of
undersized
utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame to
direct contact
and may result in ignition
of clothing.
Proper
relationship of utensil to flame will also improve efficiency.
• Know which knob controls each surface burner/surface
unit.
Place a pan of food on the burner before turning it on, and turn
the burner off before removing the pan.
• Always turn knob to the full LITE position when igniting top
burners. Visually check that burner has lit. Then adjust the flame
so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.
• Use proper pan size. This cooktop can be equipped with one
or more surface units of different sizes. Select utensils having
fiat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit. The use of
undersized utensils will expose a portion of the surface heating
unit to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper
relationship
of utensil to the surface
unit will also improve
efficiency.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend
Over Adjacent Surface Burners/Unit
--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 burners.
• Never Leave Surface Burners/Unit
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 any part of
the cooktop,
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 cooktop 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 Stove Top Grills on Your Sealed Gas
Burners--If
you use a stove top grill on a sealed gas burner, it will
cause incomplete combustion
and can result in exposure to carbon
monoxide
levels above allowable
current standards.
This can be
hazardous
to your health.
Do Not Use Decorative Surface Burner/Unit Covers.
If a burner/
unit is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover will become hot
and possibly melt. You will not be able to see that the burner/unit
is
on. Burns will occur if the hot covers are touched. Damage may also
be done to the cooktop or burners/unit
because the covers may
cause overheating.
Air will blocked from the burner/unit
and cause
combustion
problems.
IMPORTANT
INSTRUCTIONS
FOR USING YOUR
GLASS COOKTOP
• Do Not Operate or Clean a Broken Cooktop Glass.--If
glass top
should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the
broken cooktop
and create
a risk of electric shock. Contact
a
qualified
technician
immediately.
• Clean Cooktop Glass with Caution.--tf
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.
IMPORTANT
SAFETY

known to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive
