Sealed Gas Burners

Yourgas range cooktop has five sealed gas burners.Theg offer convenience. leanabilitg and flexibilitg to be used in a wide range of cooking applications.

The smallestburner in the right rear position is the simmer burner Thisburner can beturned down to Lofor a very low simmer setting. It provides precisecooking performance for delicate foods such as saucesor foodsthat require low heat for a long cooking time.

The medium (leftrear)and the large (leftfront) burners arethe primarg burners for most cooking.Thesegeneral-purpose burners can be turned down from Hito Lo to suit a wide range of cooking needs.

The extra large burner (rightfront) is the maximum output burner. Likethe other four burners. t can be turned down from Hi to Lo for a wide range of cooking applications; however. his burner is designedto quickly bring large amounts of liquid to a boil. Ithas a specialPower Boil" setting designed to be used with cookware 10 inchesor larger in diameter.

Extra-large burner Only

The center oval burner (on some models)is for large pots/pans or for use with the griddle.

How to Select Flume Size

For safe handling of cookware. never let the flames extend up the sides of the cookware

Watch the flame. not the knob. as gou reduce heat When fast heating is desired. the flame size on a gas burner should match the cookware gou are using

Flames larger than the bottom of the cookware will not result in faster heating of the cookware and could be hazardous.

Top-of-Range Cookware

Aluminum: Hedium-weight cookware is recommended because it heats quickly and evenly. Host foods brown evenly in an aluminum skillet. Usesaucepans with tight fitting lids when cooking with minimum amounts of water

Cast-Iron: If heated slowly. most skillets will give satisfactorg results.

Enamelware: Under some conditions. the enamel of some cookware may melt.

Follow cookware manufacturer's recommendations for cooking methods.

Glass: There are two tgpes of glass cookware-those for oven use only and those for top-of-range cooking (saucepans. offee and teapots).Glassconducts heat very slowly.

HeatproofGlass Ceramic: Can be used for either surface or oven cooking. It conducts heat verg slowly and cools verg slowly. Check cookware manufacturer's directions to be sure itcan be used on gas ranges.

Stainless Steel: This metal alone has poor heating properties and is usually combined with copper. aluminum or other metals for improved heat distribution. Combination metal skillets usually work satisfactorily if they are used with medium heat as the manufacturer recommends.

Stove Top Grills (on models with sealed burners)

Do not use stove top grills on your sealed gas burners. If you use the stove top grill on the sealed gas burner. it will cause incomplete combustion and can result in exposure to carbon monoxide levelsabove allowable current standards.

This can be hazardous to your health.

Use a flat-bottomed wok. sits fiat on the grate. Theyare available at your local retail store.

Only a flat-bottomed wok should be used.

Wok This Way (onmodelswithsealedburners)

We recommend that you use a 14" or smaller Do not use a flat-bottomed wok on a support flat-bottomed wok. Hake sure the wok bottom ring. Placingthe ring over the burner or grate mag cause the burner to work improperly. resulting in carbon monoxide levels above allowable standards. Thiscould be dangerous to your health.

To preheat. set the oven at the correct temperature. Preheating is necessary for good results when baking cakes. ookies. pastry and breads.

For ovenswithout a preheat indicator light or tone. reheat i0 minutes.

Baking results will be better if baking pans are centered in the oven as much as possible.

Pans should not touch each other or the walls of the oven. If you need to usetwo shelves. stagger the pans so one is not directly above the other. nd leave approximately 1VS' between pans. rom the front. back and sides of the wall.

Aluminum Foil

Do not use aluminum foil on the bottom of the oven.

Never entirely cover a shelfwith aluminum foil.Thiswill disturb the heat circulation and result in poor baking.

A smaller sheet of foil may be used to catch a spillover by placing it on a lower shelf several inches below the food.

Oven Moisture

As your oven heats up. the temperature change of the air in the oven may cause water droplets to form on the door glass.

These droplets are harmless and will evaporate as the oven continues to heat up.

Burner Grates

Your range has three professional-style double grates. These grates are position specific. For maximum stability. these grates should only be used in their proper position; they cannot be interchanged left to right or front to back. For convenience. the undersides of the left and right grates are marked "LEFTFRONT"and "RIGHTFRONT." Makesure the front portion of both grates is in front. The middle grate has a bow in front.

Makesure the bowed portion istoward the front of the range.

Cleaning

Lift out when cool.Grates should be washed regularly and. of course. after spillovers.

Wash them in hot. soapy water and rinse with clean water When replacing the grates. be sure they are positioned securely over the burners. Replacethe grates so that continuous arcs are formed with the center ribs of all three grates.

Do not operate a burner for an extended period of time without cookware on the grate.

The finish on the grate may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.

To get rid of burned-on food. place the grates in a covered container Add i/4cup ammonia and let them soak several hours or overnight.

Wash. rinse well and dry.

Although they are durable. the grates will gradually lose their shine. egardless of the best care you can give them. Thisis due to their continual exposureto high temperatures. Youwill notice this sooner with lighter color grates.

NOTE:Do not cleon the grates in a self cleaning oven.

Cooktop Surface

To avoid damaging the porcelain enamel surface of the cooktop and to prevent it from becoming dull. clean up spills right away. Foodswith a lot of acid {tomatoes. sauerkraut. fruit juices. etc.)or foods with high sugar content could cause a dull spot if allowed to set.

When the surface has cooled. wash and rinse.For other spillssuch as fat spatterings. etc. wash with soap and water once the surface has cooled.Then rinse and polish with a dry cloth.

NOTE: Do not store flammable materials in an oven. drawer or near the cooktop.Do not store or use combustible materials. gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of thisor ang other appliance.

Installation Instructions

PROVIDE ADEQUATE GAS SUPPLY

Your range is designed to operate at a pressure of 4" of water column on natural gas or. if designed for LPgas (propaneor butane). 10" of water column.

Hake sure UOUare supplging uour range with the tupe of gas for which it is designed.

Thisrange is convertible for use on natural or propane gas.

If gou decide to use this range on LPgas. conversion must be made bg a qualified LPinstaller before attempting to operate the range on that gas.

For proper operation. the pressureof natural gas supplied to the regulator must be between 4" and 13" of water column.

For LPgas. he pressuresupplied must bebetween 10" and 13" of water column.

When checking for proper operation of the regulator. he inlet pressure must be at least !" greater than the operating (manifold)pressure as given above.

The pressure regulator located at the inlet of the range manifold must remain in the supplUline regardlessof whether natural or LPgas is being used.

A flexible metal appliance connector used to connect the range to the gas supplg line should have an I.D.of 1/2" and be 5feet in length for ease of installation. In Canada. lexible connectors must be single wall metal connectors no longer than 6 feet in length.

CONNECT THE RANGE TO GAS

Shut offthe main gas supplg valve before disconnecting the old range and leave it off until the new hookup has been completed. Don't forget to relight the pilot on other gas appliances when gou turn the gas back on.

Because hard piping restricts movement of the range. the use of a CSAInternational-certified flexible metal appliance connector is recommended unlesslocal codes require a hard-piped connection.

Never use an old connector when installing a new range.

If the hard piping method is used. OUmust carefullu align the pipe; the range cannot be moved after the connection is made.

To prevent gas leaks. put pipejoint compound on. or wrap pipe thread tape with Teflon* around. all male (external) pipe threads.

A. Install a manual gas lineshut-off valve inthe gas line in an easilu accessedlocation outside of the range. Hake sure evergone operating the range knows where and how to shut offthe gas supplu to the range.

B. Install male 1/2" flare union adapter to the 1/2" NPT internal thread at inlet of regulator Usea backup wrench on the regulator fitting to avoid damage.

When installing the range from the front. remove the 90° elbow for easier installation.

C. Install male i/2" or 3/4"flare union adapter to the NPT internal thread of the manual shut-off valve. taking care to back-up the shut-off valve to keep it from turning.

D. Connect flexible metal appliance connector to the adapter on the range. Positionrange to permit connection at the shut-off valve.

E.When all connections have been made. make sure all range controls are in the off position and turn on the main gas supplg valve. Usea liquid leak detector at all joints and connections to check for leaksin the sgstem.

IMPORTANT--IPleaseread carefully)

FORPERSONALSAFETY. HISAPPLIANCEMUSTBE PROPERLYGROUNDED.

Preferred Method

The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a B-prong (grounding)plug which mates with a standard B-prong grounding wall receptacle to minimizethe possibility of electric shock hazard from this appliance.

The customer should have the wall receptacle and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the receptacle is properly grounded.

Where a standard 2-prong wall receptacle is encountered. it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to have it replaced with a properly grounded B-prong wall receptacle.

DO NOT. NDERANY CIRCUMSTANCES. UTOR REMOVE THETHIRD (GROUND}PRONGFROMTHEPOWERCORD.

A word about GFCI's--GFCI'sare not required or recommended for gas range receptacles.

Ground FaultCircuit Interrupters (GFCI's)are devices that senseleakage of current in a circuit and automatically switch off power when a threshold leakage levelis detected.

Thesedevicesmust be manually reset by the consumeE The National ElectricalCode requiresthe use of GFCI'sin kitchen receptaclesinstalledto servecountertop surfaces.

A. Usoge Situations where Applionce Power Cord will be Disconnected Infrequently.

An adapter may be used only on a 15-amp circuiL Do not use an adapter on a 20-amp circuit. Where local codes permit. a TEMPORARY CONNECTION may be made to a properly grounded two-prong wall receptacle bg the use of a UL-listed adapter. available at most hardware stores. The larger slot in the adapter must be aligned with the larger slot in the wall receptacle to provide proper polarity in the connection of the power cord.

Tempororg Method

(Adapter plugs not permitted in Canada}

Align large prongs/slots

Ensure proper ground and firm connection before use

CAUTION: Attaching the adapter ground terminal to the wall receptacle cover screw does not ground the appliance unlessthe cover screw is metal. and not insulated. and the wall receptacle is grounded through the house wiring. The customer should have the circuit checked bg a qualified electrician to make sure the receptacle is properly grounded.

When disconnecting the power cord from the adapter. always hold the adapter with one hand. If this is not done. the adapter ground terminal is very likelyto break with repeated use.Should this happen. DO NOTUSE the appliance until a proper ground has again been established.
