Standing pilots must be lit initially . Refer to your installation instruction book for directions on lighting the standing pilot . Standing pilots will remain lit when the burners are turned off . Models with electric ignitors light automatically each time a control knob is turned to the LITE position . Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers , spoon holders or plastic wrappings on top of the range when it is in use . These items could melt or ignite .

Operating the Surface Burners 1 . Place cooking utensil on surface burner . 2 . Push the surface control knob in and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF position . 3 . Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position , lfyour range is equipped with electronic ignitors , all four ignitors will spark at the same time . However , only the burner you are turning on will ignite . 3 . Visually check that the burner has lit . 4 . Push the control knob in and turn counterclockwise to the desired flame size . The control knobs do not have to be set at a particular setting . Use the guides and adjust the flame as needed . DO NOT cook with the surface control knob in the LITE position . ( The electronic ignitor will continue to spark if the knob is left in the LITE position . ) Setting Proper Surface Burner Flame Size Formost cooking , start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower one to complete the process . Use the recommendations below as a guide for PROPER determining proper flame size for various types of cooking . The size and type of FLAME SIZE utensil used and the amount of food being cooked will influence the setting needed for cooking . For deep fat frying , use a thermometer and adjust the surface control knob accordingly . If the fat is too cool , the food will absorb the fat and be greasy . If the IMPROPER fat is too hot , the food will brown so quickly that the center will be undercooked . FLAME SIZE Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the food will neither brown nor cook properly . Never extend the flame beyond the outer ] * Flame Size Type of Cooking edge of the utensil . A higher flame simplyl High Flame Start most foods ; bring water to a boil ; pan broiling . wastes heat and energy , and increasesl Medium Flame Maintain a slow boil ; thicken sauces , gravies ; steaming . Low Flame your risk of being burned by the flame . J Keep foods cooking ; poach ; stewing . * These settings are based on using medium - weight metal or aluminum pans with lids . Settings may vary when using other types of pans . The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment . A good flame is clear , blue and hardly visible in a well - lighted room . Each cone of flame should be steady and sharp . Adjust or clean burner if flame is yellow - orange .
