SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

Ŷ 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. If necessary, use a multi-purpose dry 
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.

Ŷ If there is a fire in the oven during baking, turn 

the oven off and keep the door closed until the 
fire goes out. If necessary, use a multi-purpose 
dry chemical or foam type fire extinguisher.

Ŷ If there is a fire in the oven during self-clean, turn 

the oven off and wait for the fire to go out. Do 
not force the door open. Introduction of fresh air 
at self-clean temperatures may lead to a burst 
of flame from the oven. Failure to follow this 
instruction may result in severe burns. 

Ŷ Never leave the surface burners unattended at 

medium or high heat settings. Foods, especially 
oily foods, may ignite resulting in fire that could 
spread to surrounding cabinets.

Ŷ Never leave oil unattended while frying. If allowed 

to heat beyond its smoking point, oil may ignite 
resulting in fire that may spread to surrounding 
cabinets. Use a deep fat thermometer whenever 
possible to monitor oil temperature. 

Ŷ To avoid oil spillover and fire, use a minimum 

amount of oil when shallow pan-frying and avoid 
cooking frozen foods with excessive amounts of 
ice.

Ŷ Use proper pan size and avoid pans that are 

unstable or easily tipped. Select cookware that is 
matched to the size of the burner. Burner flames 
should be adjusted so that they do not extend 
beyond the bottom of the pan. Excessive flame 
may be hazardous.

Ŷ Always use the LITE position when igniting the 

top burners and make sure the burners have 
ignited.

Ŷ When using glass/ceramic cookware, make sure 

it is suitable for cooktop service; others may 
break because of sudden change in temperature.

Ŷ To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition of 

flammable materials and spillage, the handle of a 
container should be turned toward the center of 
the range without extending over nearby burners.

Ŷ When preparing flaming foods under a hood, turn 

the fan on.

Ŷ Do not use a wok with a round metal support 

ring. The ring may trap heat and block air to the 
burner resulting in a carbon monoxide hazard.

Ŷ Do not attempt to lift the cooktop. Doing so may 

damage the gas tubing to the surface burners 
resulting in a gas leak and risk of fire.

Ŷ When disabling Lock Control (on some models), 

make sure the surface controls are set to the 
OFF position. This will prevent unintended gas 
flow from the burners.

Ŷ Do not use aluminum foil to cover the grates or 

line any part of the cooktop. Doing so may result 
in carbon monoxide poisoning, overheating of the 
cooktop surfaces, or a potential fire hazard.
