Clean the appliance regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Exhaust fan ventilation hoods and grease filters should be kept clean. Do not allow grease to accumulate on hood or filter. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire. Refer to hood manufacturer's instructions for cleaning.
Use Proper Pan Sizes. This appliance is equipped with one or more surface units of different size. Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating element. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the heating element to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing.
Proper relationship of utensil to burner will also improve efficiency.
If pan is smaller than element, a portion of the element will be exposed to direct contact and could ignite clothing or potholder.
Do not place any object on or near the control keypad area in order to prevent accidental activation of the cooktop controls.
Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend over adjacent surface units.
To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable
materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface units.
