of utensil to flame
will also
improve
efficiency.
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.
Use proper pan slze--This
appliance
is
equipped
with one or more surface
burners of difl:erent
sizes. Select utensils having
flat bottom
large enough to
cover the surface
burner. The use of undersized
utensils will
expose a portion
of the surface
burner to direct
contact
and may result in ignition of clothing.
Proper relationship
of
utensil to the surface
burner will also improve efficiency.
* Clean the appliance
regularly
to keep all parts free
of grease that could catch fire. Exhaust fan ventilation
hoods and grease
filters should
be kept clean. Do not
allow
grease to accumulate
on hood or filter. Greasy
deposits
in the fan could catch fire. When
flaming
food
under the hood, turn fan on. Refer to hood manufacturer's
instructions for cleaning.
* Utensil
Handles
Should Be Turned
Inward
from Edges
of Cooktop and Not Extend Over Adjacent
Surface
Burners--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.
Setflngs--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 surface
burner pans. Protective
liners or aluminum
foil may
interfere with heat and air distribution,
and combustion.
Damage
to the cooktop
or personal
injury may result.
* 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 Decorative
Surface Burner Covers. If a
burner is accidentally
turned on, the decorative
cover will
become
hot and possibly
melt. You will not be able to see
that the burner is on. Burns will occur
if the hot covers are
touched.
Damage
may also be done to the cooktop
or
burners because
the covers may cause overheating.
Air
will be blocked
from the burner and cause combustion
problems.
