IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE AND
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement
Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) requires the Governor of
California to publish a list of substances known to the State
of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm and
requires businesses to warn customer of potential exposures
to such substances.
Users of this appliance are hereby warned that when it
is engaged in the self-clean cycle, there may be low level
exposure to carbon monoxide, a chemical known to the State
of California to cause reproductive harm. Exposure can be
minimized by properly venting the oven to the outdoors
during the self-clean cycle, by opening a window and/or door
in the room where the appliance is located.
All ranges can tip and injury
could result. To reduce the risk of tipping of the
appliance from abnormal usage by excessive
loading of the oven door, the appliance must
be secured to wall and floor by installing the
Anti-Tip device supplied. If it is not, there is
a possible risk of the range tipping over and
causing injury if you or a child stand, sit or lean
on an open door. Please refer to the Anti-Tip
device information in the Installation Manual.
To check if the device is properly installed and engaged, look
underneath the range with a flashlight to make sure one of
the rear leveling legs is properly engaged in the bracket slot.
The Anti-Tip device secures the rear leveling leg to the floor
when properly engaged. You should check this anytime the
range has been moved.
