Your safety and the safety of others are very important.

We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety
messages.

This is the safety alert symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others. All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.” These words mean:
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t immediately follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow instructions.

The Anti-Tip Bracket

The range will not tip during normal use. However, the range can tip if you apply too much force or weight to the open door without the anti-tip bracket fastened down properly.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to persons, or damage when using the range, follow basic precautions, including the following: 

  • WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED BY PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP DEVICES. TO CHECK IF THE DEVICES ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY, SLIDE RANGE FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET SECURELY ATTACHED TO FLOOR OR WALL, AND SLIDE RANGE BACK SO REAR RANGE FOOT IS UNDER ANTI-TIP BRACKET.
  • CAUTION: Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets above a range or on the backguard of a range – children climbing on the range to reach items could be seriously injured.
  • Proper Installation – Be sure the range is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician.
  • Never Use the Range for Warming or Heating the Room.
  • Do Not Leave Children Alone – Children should not be left alone or unattended in area where the range is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the range.
  • Wear Proper Apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while using the range.
  • User Servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of the range unless specifically recommended in the manual. All  other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
  • Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven or near surface units.
  • Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires – Smother fire or flame or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
  • Use Only Dry Potholders – Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth.
  • DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR UNITS – Surface units may be hot even though they aredark in color. Areas near surface units may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface units or areas near units until they have had sufficient time to cool. Among those areas are the cooktop and surfaces facing the cooktop.
  • Use Proper Pan Size – The range is equipped with one or more surface units of different size. Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heatingelement. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the heating element to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to burner will also improve efficiency.
  • Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat Settings – Boilover causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.
  • Make Sure Reflector Pans or Drip Bowls Are in Place – Absence of these pans or bowls during cooking may
  • Protective Liners – Do not use aluminum foil to line surface unit drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as suggested in the manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in a risk of electric shock, or fire.
  • Glazed Cooking Utensils – Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for range-top service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature.
  • Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface Units – To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface units.
  • Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements – Heating elements should never be immersed in water.
  • Do Not Cook on Broken Cooktop – If cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
  • Clean Cooktop With Caution – If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
  • Use Care When Opening Door – Let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food.
  • Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers – Build-up of pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury.
  • Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed.
  • Placement of Oven Racks – Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating element in oven.
  • DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF OVEN – Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of an oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the appliance may become hot enough to cause burns – among these surfaces are oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings, oven doors, and windows of oven doors.
For self-cleaning ranges –
  • Do Not Clean Door Gasket – The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the gasket.
  • Do Not Use Oven Cleaners – No commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind should be used in or around any part of the oven.
  • Clean Only Parts Listed in Manual.
  • Before Self-Cleaning the Oven – Remove broiler pan and other utensils.

COOKTOP USE

IMPORTANT: When cooktop is in use, the Self-Cleaning cycle will be disabled. When the Self-Cleaning cycle is in use, the cooktop will be locked.

Ceramic Glass (on some models):

The surface cooking area will glow red when an element is ON. Some parts of the surface cooking area may not glow red when an element is ON. This is normal operation. It will also randomly cycle off and back on again, even while on High, to keep the cooktop from extreme temperatures. It is normal for the surface of light colored ceramic glass to appear to change color when surface cooking areas are hot. As the glass cools, it will return to its original color. Clean the cooktop after each use to help avoid scratches, pitting, abrasions and to condition the glass surface. Ceramic glass cooktop cleaner and a cooktop scraper are also recommended for stubborn soils. Do not use abrasive cleaners, cleaning pads, or harsh chemicals for cleaning. The Cooktop Care Kit Part Number 31605 contains all of the items needed to clean and condition your ceramic glass cooktop. Refer to the “Range Care” section for additional information. IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the cooktop surface and to make soils easier to remove, clean the cooktop after each use to remove all soils.

  • Avoid storing jars or cans above the cooktop. Dropping a heavy or hard object onto the cooktop could crack the cooktop.
  • To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not leave a hot lid on the cooktop. As the cooktop cools, air can become trapped between the lid and the cooktop and the ceramic glass could break when the lid is removed.
  • For foods containing sugar in any form, clean up all spills and soils as soon as possible. Allow the cooktop to cool down slightly. Then, while wearing oven mitts, remove the spills using a scraper while the surface is still warm. If sugary spills are allowed to cool down, they can adhere to the cooktop and can cause pitting and permanent marks.
  • To avoid scratches, do not slide cookware or bakeware across the cooktop. Aluminum or copper bottoms and rough finishes on cookware or bakeware could leave scratches or marks on the cooktop.
  • Do not cook popcorn in prepackaged aluminum containers on the cooktop. They could leave aluminum marks that cannot be removed completely.
  • To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not allow objects that could melt, such as plastic or aluminum foil, to touch any part of the entire cooktop.
  • To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not use the cooktop as a cutting board.
  • Use cookware about the same size as the surface cooking area. Cookware should not extend more than 1 /2″ (1.3 cm) outside the area.
    COOKTOP USE
  • Use flat-bottomed cookware for best heat conduction and energy efficiency. Cookware with rounded, warped, ribbed, or dented bottoms could cause uneven heating and poor cooking results.
  • Determine flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler across the bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the ruler, no space or light should be visible between it and the cookware.
  • Cookware designed with slightly indented bottoms or small expansion channels can be used.
  • Make sure the bottoms of pots and pans are clean and dry before using them. Residue and water can leave deposits when heated.
  • To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not cook foods directly on the cooktop.
Ceramic Glass Cooktop Cleaning (on some models)

Clean the cooktop after each use to help avoid scratches, pitting, abrasions and to condition the glass surface. Ceramic glass cooktop cleaner and a cooktop scraper are also recommended for stubborn soils. Do not use abrasive cleaners, cleaning pads, or harsh chemicals for cleaning. The Cooktop
Care Kit Part Number 31605 contains all of the items needed to clean and condition your ceramic glass cooktop. Refer to the “Range Care” section for additional information.
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the cooktop surface and to make soils easier to remove, clean the cooktop after each use to remove all soils.

Cooktop On Indicator Light

The Cooktop On indicator light is located on the display panel. When any cooktop element on the console panel is turned on, the Cooktop On indicator light will glow.

Hot Surface Indicator Light

On ceramic glass models, the Hot Surface indicator light is located on the display panel.
The Hot Surface indicator light will glow as long as any surface cooking area is too hot to touch, even after the surface cooking area is turned off.
The control lock cannot be turned on or off while the Hot Surface indicator light is on. Wait for the Hot Surface indicator light to turn off before turning the control lock on or off.

Coil Elements and Burner Bowls (on some models)

Coil elements should be level for optimal cooking results. Burner bowls, when clean, reflect heat back to the cookware. They also help catch spills. Cookware should not extend more than 1 /2″ (1.3 cm) over the coil element. If cookware is uneven or too large, it can produce excess heat, causing the burner bowl to change color

Dual Zone Cooking Element (on some models)

The Dual Zone Cooking Element offers flexibility depending on the size of the cookware. Single size can be used in the same way as a regular element. The dual size combines both the single and outer elements and is recommended for larger size cookware.

  1. Press ON/OFF for the desired Dual Zone element.
  2. Press SIZE to select dual element and a picture of the dual element will appear.
  3. Press the “up” and “down” element arrow keypads to adjust the heating element to the desired level.
  4. To switch back to the single element, press SIZE.
  5. Press ON/OFF for the selected element to turn the element off.
    Cooking Element
Melt Cooking Element

The Melt cooking element offers flexibility due to a wide range of settings between High and Melt. The High heat option can be used to boil small amounts of liquid quickly. The lowest setting can be used to prepare sauces and to keep foods at a low temperature. Use cookware appropriate in size for the Melt element.
Melt Cooking Element

To reduce the power setting to Melt, press the “down” arrow for the Melt element until “Melt” appears in the display.

Melt Cooking Element

Cookware

IMPORTANT: Do not leave empty cookware on a hot surface cooking area, element, or surface burner. Ideal cookware should have a flat bottom, straight sides, and a well-fitting lid, and the material should be of medium-to-heavy thickness.
Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop. Aluminum and copper may be used as a core or base in cookware. However, when used as a base, they can leave permanent marks on the surfaces.
Cookware material is a factor in how quickly and evenly heat is transferred which affects cooking results. A nonstick finish has the same characteristics as its base material. For example, aluminum cookware with a nonstick finish will take on the properties of aluminum.
Cookware with nonstick surfaces should not be used under the broiler.
Check for flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler across the bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the ruler, no space or light should be visible between it and the cookware.

Racks

Rack Positions

Rack 5: Toasting bread or broiling thin, non-fatty foods
Rack 4: 2-rack baking and broiling
Rack 3: Most baked goods on a cookie sheet, muffin pan, or jelly roll pan; layer cakes; broiling chicken pieces
Rack 2: Pies, casseroles, yeast bread, quick breads, frozen convenience foods, 2-rack baking
Rack 1: Roasting large and small cuts of meat and poultry

Multiple Rack Cooking

2-rack: Use rack positions 2 and 4.

Baking Layer Cakes on 2 Racks

For best results when baking cakes on 2 racks, use racks 2 and 4 for baking. Place the cakes on the racks as shown.

Baking

Oven Vent

Oven Vent

The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven and should not be blocked or covered. Blocking or covering the oven vent will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking and cleaning results. Do not set plastics, paper, or other items that could melt or burn near the oven vent.
On coil element models, the element can be used when the oven is in use as long as the cookware does not extend more than 1 /2″ (1.3 cm) over the element.

Baking and Roasting

NOTE: 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.

ACCUBAKE® Temperature Management System

The ACCUBAKE® system electronically regulates the oven heat levels during preheat and Bake to maintain a precise temperature range for optimal cooking results. The bake and broil elements or burners cycle on and off in intervals. On convection range models, the fan will run while preheating and may be cycled on and off for short intervals during Bake to provide the best results. This feature is automatically activated when the oven is in use.
Before baking and roasting, position racks according to “Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. When roasting, it is not necessary to wait for the oven preheat cycle to end before putting food in unless it is recommended in the recipe.

Preheating

When Start is pressed, the oven will begin preheating. Once 100ºF (38ºC) is reached, the display temperature will increase as the actual temperature of the oven increases. When the preheat temperature is reached, a tone will sound and the selected temperature will appear on the display.

Broiling

NOTE: 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.
IMPORTANT: Close the door to ensure proper broiling temperature.

Changing the temperature when Custom Broiling allows more precise control when cooking. The lower the broil setting is, the slower the cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish, and poultry may cook better at lower broil settings. Use rack 4 or 5 for broiling. Refer to the “Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section for more information.
On lower settings, the broil element will cycle on and off to maintain the proper temperature.

  • For best results, use a broiler pan and grid. It is designed to drain juices and help avoid spatter and smoke. If you would like to purchase a broiler pan, one may be ordered. Please refer to the “Accessories” section for more information.

NOTE: Odors and smoke are normal the first few times the oven is used or if the oven is heavily soiled.

FAQ’S

What is the purpose of the Anti-Tip Bracket?

The Anti-Tip Bracket is designed to prevent the range from tipping forward or backward.

How do I install the Anti-Tip Bracket?

The Anti-Tip Bracket is installed by attaching it to the bottom of the range at the four locations where it is located.

How do I use the Anti-Tip Bracket?

To use the Anti-Tip Bracket, simply place it into position and push down on it until you hear a click. You can then open and close the door as you normally would.

What happens if I don’t use the Anti-Tip Bracket?

If you don’t use the Anti-Tip Bracket, you will not be able to open or close your door all of the way.

What happens if I use too much force on my door without using my Anti-Tip Bracket?

If you apply too much force on your door without using your anti-tip bracket, there is a risk that your range could tip over. 

What should I do if my range tips over?

If your range tips over, immediately unplug it and contact an authorized service center for repair. Do not attempt to repair it yourself. 

What should I do if my Anti-Tip Bracket is missing or broken?

If your anti-tip bracket is missing or broken, contact an authorized service center for repair. Do not attempt to repair it yourself. 

How do I reset my Whirlpool electric range?

Reset power to the product:
Power unit down by turning off the circuit breaker(s) for one (1) minute.
Power unit up by turning on the circuit breaker(s).
Start a bake cycle.
Monitor the oven for one (1) minute to ensure the error code does not display again.
Verify oven operation.

Why is my Whirlpool electric oven not heating up?

If the thermal fuse does not have continuity, replace it. The thermal fuse cannot be reset—if the fuse has blown, it must be replaced. One of the wires that supply power to the oven element or igniter might be burnt out. These wires commonly burn out near the heat source.

What causes an electric stove to stop working?

The stove is one of the most used appliances in any home. Over time, like all appliances, stoves go through general wear and tear, and some functions may stop working. Some of the reasons that an electric stovetop stops working are faulty wire connections, burnt wires, or a blown fuse

How do you turn on a touch screen electric stove?

To switch the stove on, touch the ON/OFF symbol for a few seconds. Two zeros are lit now, one for the top plate and one for the bottom plate. After about 30 seconds of inactivity, the stove switches itself off. Adjust the power by touching the symbols + and – for the respective plate

Why would my stove stopped working?

Blown fuses indicate a problem somewhere else in the oven, such as a short circuit in the wiring or a problem with the control board. A blown fuse could also be the result of a recent power outage or power surge.

  1. My oven temperature is to low it stops at 270 degrees should it be calibrated and if so how do I do that ?

  2. Baking scones in my previous oven took 12 – 15 minutes at 400* F. With the convection on. With the new whirlpool I’ve had to set to 425* with convection and bake anywhere from 15 – 20 minutes. Not sure why. Interesting as my ginger snaps baked at the same time and heat as previous oven. Any suggestions. Mary
