Using the cooktop burners.
Throughout this manual, features and appearance may vary from your model.
How to Light a Burner
Your cooktop burners are lit by electric
ignition, eliminating the need for
standing pilot lights with constantly
Push the control knob in and turn it
counterclockwise to the LITE position.
After the burner ignites, turn the knob to
adjust the flame size. To turn the burner
off, turn the knob clockwise as far as it
will go, to the OFF position.
■ Check to be sure the burner you turn on is the
one you want to use.
■ In case of a power failure, you can light the
burners with a match. Hold a lit match to the
burner, then push in and turn the control knob
to the LITE position. Use extreme caution when
lighting burners this way. Burners in use when
an electrical power failure occurs will continue
to operate normally.
■ Do not operate the burner for an extended
period of time without cookware on the grate.
The finish on the grate may chip without
cookware to absorb the heat.
■ Be sure the burners and grates are cool before
you place your hand, a pot holder, cleaning
cloths or other materials on them.
Be sure you turn the control knob
to OFF when you finish cooking.
How to Select Flame Size
For safe handling of cookware, never let the
flame extend up the sides of the cookware.
Watch the flame, not the knob, as you
reduce heat. When fast heating is desired,
the flame size on a gas burner should
match the cookware you are using.
Flames larger than the bottom of the
cookware will not result in faster heating
of the cookware and could be hazardous.
Never let the flame extend up the
sides of the cookware.
We recommend that you use a flat-bottomed
wok, available at your local retail store.
Do not use a wok on any other support
ring. Placing the ring over the burner
grate may cause the burner to work
improperly, resulting in carbon
monoxide levels above allowable
This could be dangerous to your health.
Do not try to use such woks without the
ring unless you are using the Wok
Holder. You could be seriously burned
if the wok tipped over.
