WARNING Avoid fire hazard or electrical shock. Do not use an adapter plug, an extension cord, or remove grounding prong from electrical power cord. Failure to follow this warning can cause serious injury, fire or death. This appliance is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug for your protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded receptacle. DO NOT cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug. For personal safety, the range must be properly grounded. For maximum safety, the power cord must be plugged into an electrical outlet that is correctly polarized and properly grounded. If a 2-prong wall receptacle is the only available outlet, it is the personal responsibility of the consumer to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician. 6

When rinsing, use clean water and a dishcloth and be sure to squeeze excess water from dishcloth before wiping the control panel. • Stainless Steel (some models) Clean heavier soils with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and a cloth. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorine. Do not use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to wipe the clean- ers off from the surface as bluish stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed. • Oven interior & door liner Gentle scouring with a soapy non-abrasive scouring pad will remove most spots. • Porcelain enamel broiler pan Rinse with a 1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia.

Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface; they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning. The oven interior is porcelain coated and is safe to clean using oven cleaners following manufacturer’s instructions. After cleaning, remove any oven cleaner or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating. Do not spray oven cleaner on any electrical controls or switches. Do not spray or allow oven cleaner to build up on the oven temperature sensing bulb. Do not spray cleaner on oven door trim, door gasket, plastic drawer glides, handles or any exterior surfaces of the range. Clean any soils from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door gasket and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. Clean with hot, soapy water.

CAUTION When lowering the lift-up range cooktop, grasp the sides Routinely clean the cooktop. Wipe with a clean, damp with fingertips only. Be careful not to pinch fingers. Do cloth and wipe dry to avoid scratches. not drop or bend the range cooktop when raising or lowering. This could damage the cooktop surface. Keeping the surface burner head ports clean will prevent improper ignition and an uneven flame. See the following sections for more instructions. To clean recessed and contoured areas of cooktop If a spill occurs on or in the recessed or contoured areas, blot up spill with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean, cooktop damp cloth and wipe dry. To clean burner grates lift-up rods • Clean when the grates are cool. • Use nonabrasive plastic scrubbing pad and mild abrasive cleanser. Fig. 1 • Food soils containing acids may affect the finish. Clean immediately after the grates are cool. Raising and lowering the cooktop • Thoroughly dry grates immediately following cleaning. 1. Remove burner grates when cool from cooktop and set aside. 2. Grasp the sides of the cooktop and then lift from the front (See Fig. 1). 3. Lift the top high enough to allow the support rods to snap into place. The lift-up rods will support the cooktop in the raised position. 4. If necessary, clean underneath using hot, soapy water and a clean cloth; then, dry. 5. To lower the cooktop, grasp the front corner of each side of the top while pushing back on each rod with the heel of your hand. This will release the notched support. Hold the range top and gently slide the range top down to the range. 14
