Safety Instructions

Manual backgroundKeep hood and grease filters clean to maintain good venting and to avoid grease fires.

Do not let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate in or near the range.

Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up a flaming pan. Smother flaming pan on surface unit by covering pan completely with well-fitting lid, cookie sheet or flat tray. Flaming grease outside a pan can be put out by covering with baking soda or, if available, a multi- purpose dry chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.

Do not touch heating elements or interior surface of oven. These surfaces may be hot enough to burn even though they are dark in color. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface units, areas nearby the surface units or any interior area of the oven; allow sufficient time for cooling first.

Potentially hot surfaces include the cooktop and areas facing the cooktop, oven vent opening and surfaces near the opening, and crevices around the oven door. Remember: The inside surface of the oven may be hot when the door is opened.

Operating Instructions Care and Cleaning


Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meat to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 160°F and poultry to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 180°F. Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against foodborne illness.


Stand away from range when opening oven door. Hot air or steam which escapes can cause burns to hands, face and/or eyes.

Installation Instructions

Don’t heat unopened food containers in the oven. Pressure could build up and the container could burst, causing an injury.

Keep oven free from grease buildup.

Place oven shelf in desired position while oven is cool. If shelves must be handled when hot, do not let pot holder contact heating elements in the oven.

Pulling out shelf to the shelf stop is a convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also a precaution against burns from touching hot surfaces of the door or oven walls.

When using cooking or roasting bags in oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.

Do not use your oven to dry newspapers. If overheated, they can catch fire.

Keep the oven vent ducts unobstructed.
