Stainless steel
Heats quickly, but unevenly.
A core or base of aluminum or copper on
stainless steel provides even heating.
For best results, the cookware should be centered above the
burner with the bottom sitting level on the grate. The flame should
be adjusted so that it does not extend up the sides of the pan.
Home Canning
When canning for long periods, alternate the use of surface
burners between batches. This allows time for the most recently
used areas to cool.
Center the canner on the grate above the burner.
Do not place canner on 2 surface burners at the same time.
For more information, contact your local agricultural extension
office or refer to published home canning guides. Companies
that manufacture home canning products can also offer
The normal operation of the range will include several noises that
may be heard each time the Bake or Broil burners ignite during
the cooking cycle:
Gas valves may make a “popping” sound when opening or
Igniters will “click” several times until a flame is sensed.
A “poof” sound is heard when a bake or broil burner ignites.
Odors and smoke are normal when the oven is used the first few
times or when it is heavily soiled.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to
the fumes given off. Exposure to the fumes may result in death to
certain birds. Always move birds to another closed and well-
ventilated room.
NOTE: On some models: The convection fan will shut off when
the oven door is opened. If the oven door remains open for too
long, the heating elements will shut off until the oven door is
closed. All timers, including any active Cook Time or Timed Cook
functions, will continue to count down.

Oven Temperature Offset Control
IMPORTANT: Do not use a thermometer to measure oven
temperature. Elements will cycle on and off as needed to provide
consistent temperature but may run slightly hot or cool at any
point in time due to this cycling. Most thermometers are slow to
react to temperature change and will not provide an accurate
reading due to this cycling.
The oven provides accurate temperatures; however, it may cook
faster or slower than your previous oven, so the temperature can
be adjusted to personalize it for your cooking needs. It can be
changed to Fahrenheit or Celsius.
To Adjust Oven Temperature:
1. Press and hold the Temp/Time down arrow keypad for
5 seconds until the oven display shows the current setting, for
example “0°F CAL” or “00.”
2. Press the Temp/Time up or down arrow keypad to increase or
to decrease the temperature in 5°F (3°C) amounts. The
adjustment can be set between 30°F (18°C) and
-30°F (-18°C).
3. Press the Start keypad.
