Never install the range over vinyl tile or linoleum that cannot withstand such type of use. Never install it directly over interior kitchen carpeting.
WARNING: These adjustments must
? 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, broiler drawer or cooktop.
They could damage the range and even tip it over, causing severe personal injury.
CAUTION: 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.
? Clean only parts listed in this Owners Manual.
? 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 broiler 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 can be smothered completely by closing the oven door 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 broiler drawer.
? Large scratches or impacts to glass doors can lead to broken or shattered glass.
COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY
Cook meat and poultry thoroughlymeat to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 160F and poultry to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 180F. Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against foodborne illness.
Stand away from the range when opening the door of a hot oven. The hot air and steam that escape can cause burns to hands, face and eyes.
? Do not use your oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch fire.
? Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
? Use only glass cookware that is recommended for use in gas ovens.
? Pulling out the shelf to the stop-lock is a convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also a precaution against burns from touching hot surfaces of the door or oven walls. The lowest position is not designed to slide.
? Never use aluminum foil to line the oven bottom. Improper use of foil could start a fire and result in high carbon monoxide.
WARNING: NEVER cover
? Make sure any broiler pan is in place correctly to reduce the possibility of grease fires.
? If you should have a grease fire in a broiler pan, turn off the oven control, and keep the broiler drawer and oven door closed to contain fire until it burns out.
? For safety and proper cooking performance, always bake and broil with the oven door
Troubleshooting any slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack with materials such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
Aluminum foil linings may also trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
? When broiling, if meat is too close to the flame, the fat may ignite. Trim excess fat to prevent excessive flare-ups.
? Do not heat unopened food containers.
Pressure could build up and the container could burst, causing an injury.
? Always remove any broiler pan from range as soon as you finish broiling. Grease left in the pan can catch fire if oven is used without removing the grease from the broiler pan.
Care and Cleaning
? Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in the oven can ignite.
? Place the oven shelves in the desired position while the oven is cool.
? When using cooking or roasting bags in the oven, follow the manufacturers directions.
? For continuous clean models, do not use oven cleaners on
