Troubleshooting Tips

? 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 leave children alone or unattended where a range is hot or in operation. They could be seriously burned.

? Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on the oven door, storage drawer, warming drawer or cooktop. They could damage the range and even tip it over, causing severe personal injury.

CAUTION: Items of interest to

Consumer Support children should not be stored in cabinets above a range or on the backsplash of a rangechildren climbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.

WARNING: 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 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.

? Do not store flammable materials in an oven, a range storage drawer, a warming drawer or near a cooktop.

? Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

? 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. Turn the controls off.

Smother a flaming pan on a surface burner 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.

? Flaming grease outside a pan can be put out by covering it with baking soda or, if available, by using a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.

? Flame in the oven or warming drawer can be smothered completely by closing the oven door or drawer and turning the control to off or by using a multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.

? Let the burner grates and other surfaces cool before touching them or leaving them where children can reach them.

? Never block the vents (air openings) of the range. They provide the air inlet and outlet that are necessary for the range to operate properly with correct combustion. Air openings are located at the rear of the cooktop, at the top and bottom of the oven door, and at the bottom of the range under the warming drawer or storage drawer.

? Large scratches or impacts to glass doors can lead to broken or shattered glass.


? Always use the LITE position 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.

? Use only dry pot holdersmoist 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.

? 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.

? Use a deep fat thermometer whenever possible to prevent overheating fat beyond the smoking point.
