IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to
persons, or damage when using the range, follow basic
precautions, including the following:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF THE
RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED BY PROPERLY
INSTALLED ANTI-TIP DEVICES. TO CHECK IF THE DEVICES
ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE RANGE COMPLETELY
FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET SECURELY
ATTACHED TO THE WALL BEHIND THE RANGE AND SLIDE
RANGE COMPLETELY BACK SO ANTI-TIP BRACKET IS
OVER REAR BRACE OF RANGE.
NEVER use this appliance as a space heater to
heat or warm the room. Doing so may result in carbon monoxide
poisoning and overheating of the oven.
NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the
oven bottom or cover an entire rack with materials such as
aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the oven and may
cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may
also trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets
above a range or on the backguard of a range – children climbing
on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.
Do Not Leave Children Alone – Children should not be left alone
or unattended in area where the range is in use. They should
never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the range.
Wear Proper Apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging garments should
never be worn while using the range.
User Servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of the range
unless specifically recommended in the manual. All other
servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should not
be stored in an oven or near surface units.
Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires – Smother fire or flame or
use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
Use Only Dry Potholders – Moist or damp potholders on hot
surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder
touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky
DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR UNITS
– Surface units may be hot even though they are dark in color.
Areas near surface units may become hot enough to cause
burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other
flammable materials contact surface units or areas near units
until they have had sufficient time to cool. Among those areas
are the cooktop and surfaces facing the cooktop.
Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat Settings –
Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.
Glazed Cooking Utensils – Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils
are suitable for range-top service without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature.
Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend Over
Adjacent Surface Units – To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of
flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact
with the utensil, the handle of a utensil should be positioned so
that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Clean Cooktop With Caution – If a wet sponge or cloth
is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful
to avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can produce
noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
Use Care When Opening Door – Let hot air or steam
escape before removing or replacing food.
Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers – Build-up of
pressure may cause container to burst and result in
Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.
Placement of Oven Racks – Always place oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be
moved while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact hot
heating element in oven.
DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR
SURFACES OF OVEN – Heating elements may be hot
even though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of
an oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and
after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable
materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of
oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other
surfaces of the appliance may become hot enough to
cause burns – among these surfaces are oven vent
openings and surfaces near these openings, oven
doors, and windows of oven doors.
Proper Installation – The range, when installed, must be
electrically grounded in accordance with local codes or,
in the absence of local codes, with the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 . In Canada, the range
must be electrically grounded in accordance with
Canadian Electrical Code. Be sure the range is properly
installed and grounded by a qualified technician.
Disconnect the electrical supply before servicing the
Injuries may result from the misuse of appliance doors
or drawers such as stepping, leaning, or sitting on the
doors or drawers.
Maintenance – Keep range area clear and free from
combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable
vapors and liquids.
Top burner flame size should be adjusted so it does not
extend beyond the edge of the cooking utensil.
For self-cleaning ranges –
Do Not Clean Door Gasket – The door gasket is
essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to
rub, damage, or move the gasket.
Do Not Use Oven Cleaners – No commercial oven
cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any part of the oven.
Clean Only Parts Listed in Manual.
Before Self-Cleaning the Oven – Remove broiler pan
and other utensils. Wipe off all excessive spillage before
initiating the cleaning cycle.
For units with ventilating hood –
Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently – Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.
When flambéing foods under the hood, turn the fan on.
