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

? Do not store flammable materials in an oven, a range 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.

? Flame in the upper oven or lower oven 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, lower oven drawer or kick panel.

? Do not use a wok on the cooking surface if the wok has a round metal ring that is placed over the burner grate to support the wok. This ring acts as a heat trap, which may damage the burner grate and burner head.
Also, it may cause the burner to work improperly. This may cause a carbon monoxide level above that allowed by current standards, resulting in a health hazard.
? Foods for frying should be as dry as possible.
Frost on frozen foods or moisture on fresh foods can cause hot fat to bubble up and over the sides of the pan.
? Never try to move a pan of hot fat, especially a deep fat fryer. Wait until the fat is cool.
