IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.

WARNING IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE, TAKE THE FOLLOWING

STEPS TO PREVENT THE FIRE FROM SPREADING:

? Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up a flaming pan. Turn the controls off. Smother a flaming pan on a surface unit by covering the pan completely with a well-fitting lid, cookie sheet or flat tray. Use a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.

? If there is a fire in the oven during self-clean, turn the oven off and wait for the fire to go out.

Do not force the door open. Introduction of fresh air at self-clean temperatures may lead to a burst of flame from the oven. Failure to follow this instruction may result in severe burns.

? If there is a fire in the oven during baking, smother the fire by closing the oven door and turning the oven off or by using a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.

Care and Cleaning

WARNING COOKTOP SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

? Never leave the surface units unattended at medium or high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may catch

? Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, earthenware or other glazed containers are suitable for cooktop service; others may break because of the sudden change in temperature.

? Never leave oil unattended while frying. If allowed to heat beyond its smoking point, oil may ignite resulting in fire that may spread to surrounding cabinets. Use a deep fat thermometer whenever possible to monitor oil temperature.

? To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage, the handle of a container should be turned toward the center of the range without extending over nearby surface units.

? To avoid oil spillover and fire, use a minimum

amount of oil when shallow pan-frying and avoid cooking frozen foods with excessive amounts of ice.

? Use proper pan sizeselect cookware having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface heating element. The use of undersized cookware will expose a portion of the surface unit to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing.

Proper relationship of cookware to surface unit will also improve efficiency.

? When preparing flaming foods under a hood, turn the fan on.

WARNING RADIANT COOKTOP SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

(Some models)

? Use care when touching the cooktop. The glass surface of the cooktop will retain heat after the controls have been turned off.

? Do not cook on a broken cooktop. If glass cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.

? Avoid scratching the glass cooktop. The cooktop can be scratched with items such as knives, sharp instruments, rings or other jewelry, and rivets on

? Do not place or store items that can melt or catch fire on the glass cooktop, even when it is not being used. If the cooktop is inadvertently turned on, they may ignite. Heat from the cooktop or oven vent after it is turned off may cause them to ignite also.

? Use CERAMA BRYTE ceramic Cooktop Cleaner and

CERAMA BRYTE Cleaning Pad to clean the cooktop.

Wait until the cooktop cools and the indicator light goes out before cleaning. A wet sponge or cloth on a hot surface can cause steam burns. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface. Note: Sugar spills are an exception.

They should be scraped off while still hot using an oven mitt and a scraper. See the Cleaning the glass cooktop section for detailed instructions.

? Read and follow all instructions and warnings on the cleaning cream label.

(Some models)

? Do not immerse or soak the removable surface units. Do not put them in a dishwasher. Do not selfclean the surface units in an oven. Doing so may cause them to fail presenting a burn or fire hazard.

? Be sure the drip pans are not covered and are in place. Their absence during cooking could damage range parts and wiring.

WARNING OVEN SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

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

? Keep the oven vent unobstructed.

? Place oven
