? Do not let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate in or near the range.
? After prolonged use of a range, high floor temperatures may result and many floor coverings will not withstand this kind of use.
Never install the range over vinyl tile or linoleum that cannot withstand such type of use. Never install it directly over interior kitchen carpeting.
? Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
? WARNING: These adjustments must be made by a qualified service technician in accordance with the manufacturers instructions and all codes and requirements of the authority having jurisdiction. Failure to follow these instructions could result in serious injury or property damage. The qualified agency performing this work assumes responsibility for the conversion.
? Do not store flammable materials in an oven, a range storage drawer, a warming drawer or near a cooktop.
? Be sure all packaging materials are removed from the range before operating it to prevent fire or smoke damage should the packaging material ignite.
? Never wear loose fitting or hanging garments while using the appliance. Be careful when reaching for items stored in cabinets over the range. Flammable material could be ignited if brought in contact with flame or hot oven surfaces and may cause severe burns.
? For your safety, never use your appliance for warming or heating the room.
Use proper pan sizeavoid pans that are unstable or easily tipped. Select cookware having flat bottoms large enough to cover burner grates. To avoid spillovers, make sure cookware is large enough to contain the food properly. This will both save cleaning time and prevent hazardous accumulations of food, since heavy spattering or spillovers left on range can ignite. Use pans with handles that can be easily grasped and remain cool.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
? Always use the LITE position (on electric ignition models) or the HI position (on standing pilot models) when igniting the top burners and make sure the burners have ignited.
? Never leave the surface burners unattended at high flame settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
? Adjust the top burner flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the cookware.
Excessive flame is hazardous.
? Use only dry pot holders moist or damp pot holders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let pot holders come near open flames when lifting cookware. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth in place of a pot holder.
? When using glass cookware, make sure it is designed for top-of-range cooking.
? To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage, turn cookware handles toward the side or back of the range without extending over adjacent
? Carefully watch foods being fried at a high flame setting.
? Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
? Do not leave any items on the cooktop. The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable items and will increase pressure in closed containers, which may cause them to burst.
? If a combination of oils or fats will be used in frying, stir together before heating or as fats melt slowly.
? Use a deep fat thermometer whenever possible to prevent overheating fat beyond the smoking point.
? Use the least possible amount of fat for effective shallow or deep-fat frying. Filling the pan too full of fat can cause spillovers when food is added.
? When flaming foods are under the hood, turn the fan off. The fa
