Getting Started

Liquefied Petroleum
(Propane) Gas Conversion
This appliance can be used with Natural Gas and
Propane Gas. It is shipped from the factory for use
with natural gas.
A kit for converting to LP gas is supplied with your
cooktop. The kit is marked "FOR LP/PROPANE
GAS CONVERSION". Follow the installation
instructions which are inside the envelope.
The conversion must be performed by a qualified
service technician in accordance with the kit
instructions and all local codes and requirements.
Failure to follow instructions could result in serious
injury or property damage. The qualified agency
performing this work assumes responsibility for the
conversion.

Surface Cooking

Flame Size

For most cooking, start on the highest control
setting and then turn to a lower one to complete
the process. Use the chart below as a guide for
determining proper flame size for various types
of cooking. The size and type of utensil used and
the amount of food being cooked will influence the
setting needed for cooking.
For deep fat frying, use a thermometer and adjust
the surface control knob accordingly. If the fat is too
cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy. If
the fat is too hot, the food will brown so quickly that
the center will be undercooked. Do not attempt to
deep fat fry too much food at once as the food will
neither brown nor cook properly.
RIGHT
WRONG
Severe shock, or damage to the cooktop may occur if the
cooktop is not installed by a qualified installer or electrician.
Any additions, changes or conversions required in order for this
appliance to satisfactorily meet the application needs must be
made by a qualified service technician in accordance with the
manufacturer's instructions and all codes and requirements of
the authority having jurisdiction. Failure to follow the instructions
could result in serious injury or property damage. The qualified
agency performing this work assumes responsibility for the
conversion.
*Flame Size
Type of Cooking
Start most foods; bring water
High Flame
to a boil; pan broiling
Maintain a slow boil; thicken
Medium Flame
sauces, gravies; steam
Keep foods cooking; poach;
Low Flame
stew
*These settings are based on using medium-
weight aluminum pans with lids. Settings may
vary when using other types of pans.
Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of
the utensil. A higher flame simply wastes heat and
energy, and increases your risk of being burned by
the flame.
Proper Burner Adjustments
The color of the flame is the key to proper burner
adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue and hardly
visible in a well-lighted room. Each cone of flame
should be steady and sharply defined. Adjust or clean
burner if flame is yellow-orange. To clean burner, see
instructions under General Care & Cleaning.
