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.


When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions

should be followed, including the following:


Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as

described in this manual.


Be sure your appliance is properly installed and

grounded by a qualified technician in accordance with

the provided installation instructions.


Never use appliance for warming or heating the room.


Children should not be left alone or unattended in area

where appliance is in use. They should never be allowed

to sit or stand on any part of the appliance.


Never wear loose-fitting or hanging garments while

using the appliance. Be careful when reaching for items

stored over the range. Flammable material could be

ignited if brought in contact with hot surface units or

heating elements and may cause severe burns.


Do not repair or replace any part of appliance unless

specifically recommended in this manual. All other

servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.


Do not store flammable materials in an oven, Microwave

Drawer or near surface units. Do not store or use

combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable

vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this appliance.


Do not use water on grease fires. Smother a flame or

use a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher. Flaming

grease outside a pan can be put out by covering it with

baking soda or, if available, by a multi-purpose dry

chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.


Use only dry potholders - a moist or damp potholder

on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do

not let potholders touch hot surfaces, radiant surface

units or heating elements. Do not use a towel or other

bulky cloth.



Do not store items of interest to children in

cabinets above a range or on the backsplash of a range.

Children climbing on the range to reach items could

be seriously injured.


Do not touch the surface units, heating elements or the

interior surface of the oven. These surfaces may be hot

even though they are dark in color. These surfaces may

become hot enough to cause burns. During and after

use, do not touch or let clothing or other flammable

materials contact surface units, heating elements or

interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient

time to cool. Other potentially hot surfaces include:

cooktop, areas facing the cooktop, oven vent opening,

surfaces near the vent opening, oven door and window

and area around the door.


Have the installer show you the location of the circuit

breaker or fuse. Mark it for easy reference.


Before performing any service, disconnect the range

power supply at the household distribution panel by

removing the fuse or switching off the circuit breaker.


Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang on the

door, Microwave Drawer or cooktop. They could

damage the range and even tip it over, causing severe

personal injury.


Teach children not to play with the controls or any other

part of the range.


Always keep wooden and plastic utensils and canned

food a safe distance from your range.


Always keep combustible wall coverings, curtains or

drapes a safe distance from your range.
