Initial lighting and gas flame adjustments.
Cooktop and oven burners use electronic ignitors
in place of standing pilots. When the cooktop
control knob is turned to the "LITE" position, the
system creates a spark to light the burner. This
sparking continues as long as the control knob is
turned to "LITE".
When the oven control is turned to the desired
setting, a glow bar heats up bright orange and
ignites the gas. No sparking occurs and the glow
bar remains on while the burners operate.
I Check the
operation of
m the cooktop
burners. Push in and
turn each control knob
to the "LITE" position.
The flame should light
within 4 seconds. The
first time a burner is
lighted it may take
longer than 4 seconds
to light because of air in
gas line.

knob to the "OFF" position. Check that the power
supply cord is plugged in and the circuit breaker or
