Burners
Your range is equipped with gas surface burners
with 4 different BTU ratings. The ability to heat
food quicker and in larger volumes increases as
the burner size increases.
The smaller SIMMER burner is best used for
simmering delicate sauces, etc. This burner is
located at the right rear burner position on the
cooktop (See Fig. 1).
The STANDARD burner can be used for most
surface cooking needs. This burner is located at
the left front burner position on the cooktop (See
Fig. 1).
The larger 2 POWER burners are best used for
bringing large quantities of liquid rapidly up to
temperature or when preparing larger quantities of
food. The two POWER Burners are located at the
left rear and right front burner positions on the
cooktop (See Fig. 1).

Operating
the Gas Surface Controls:
1.
Place cooking utensil on surface burner.
2.
Push the surface control knob in and turn counterclockwise
out
of the OFF position (See Fig. 2).
3.
Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position. Note: All four
electronic surface ignitors will spark at the same time. However,
only the burner you are turning on will ignite.
4.
Visually check that the burner has a flame.
5.
Turn the control knob counterclockwise
to the desired flame
size. The control knobs do not have to be set at a particular
setting. Use the knob indicator settings to adjust the flame as
needed. DO NOT cook with the surface control knob in the LITE
position. (The electronic ignitor will continue to spark if the knob
is left in the LITE position.)
Do not place plastic items such as salt and
pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on top
of the range when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite.
Potholders, towels or wood spoons could catch fire if placed too
close to a flame.
