WARNING
Fire Hazard
Do not let the burner flame extend beyond the edge of
the pan.
Turn off all controls when not cooking.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death
or fire.
IMPORTANT: Your cooktop is factory-set for use with Natural
gas. If you wish to use LP Gas, an LP Gas Conversion Kit is
included with your new range. Models with the TripleTier
Burner will include a TripleTier
and a kit for standard ranges. See "Installation Instructions" for
details on making this conversion.
Electric igniters automatically light the surface burners when
control knobs are turned to LITE.
Before setting a control knob, place filled cookware on the grate.
Do not operate a burner while using empty cookware or without
any cookware on the grate.
NOTE: Visually check that the burner has lit. If the burner does
not ignite, listen for the clicking sound. If you do not hear the
igniter click, turn the burner off. Check for a tripped circuit
breaker or blown fuse.
Check that the control knob is pressed completely down on the
valve shaft. If the spark igniter still does not operate, call a trained
repair specialist.
Proper grounding and polarity are necessary for correct operation
of the electric ignition system. If the wall receptacle does not
provide correct polarity, the igniters will become grounded and
occasionally click, even after the burner has ignited. Contact a
trained repair specialist to check the wall receptacle to see
whether it is wired with the correct polarity.
REMEMBER: When range is in use or (on some models)
during the Self-Cleaning cycle, the entire cooktop area may
become hot.
Power failure
In case of prolonged power failure, the surface burners can be lit
manually. Hold a lit match near a burner and turn knob
counterclockwise to LITE. After burner lights, turn knob to
setting.
