- Teach children not to play with the controls or any other part of the range.
SURFACE COOKING UNITS
- Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.
- Do not lift the cooktop. Lifting the cooktop can lead to damage and improper operation of the range.
- Do not operate the cooktop when there is no cookware. If the cooktop operates without a cookware, the control knob will become hot.
- Never use the glass cooktop surface as a cutting board.
- Use care when touching the cooktop. The glass surface of the cooktop will retain heat after the controls have been turned off.
- Be careful when placing spoons or other stirring utensils on glass cooktop surface when it is in use. They may become hot and could cause burns.
- Use proper pan sizes. This appliance is equipped with surface units of different size. Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating element. 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.
- 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.
- Read and follow all instructions and warnings on the cleaning cream labels.
- Be sure you know which control knob operates each surface unit. Make sure you turned on the correct surface unit.
- Always turn the surface units off before removing cookware.
- When preparing flaming foods under the hood, turn the fan on.
- Keep an eye on foods being fried at high or medium-high heat settings.
- DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF THE OVEN. Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. The 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 the heating elements or interior surfaces of the Samsung 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.
- Do not heat unopened food containers. The build-up of pressure may cause the container to burst and result in injury.
- Do not use the Samsung oven to dry newspapers. If overheated, they can catch on fire.
- Do not use the Samsung oven for a storage area. Items stored in an oven can ignite.
- Use care when opening the door. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or replace food in the oven.

- Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. The oven vent is located above the right rear surface unit. this area could become hot during oven use. Never block this vent and never place plastic or heat-sensitive items on vent
- Placement of oven racks. Always place oven racks in the desired location while the oven is cool. If the rack must be moved while oven is hot, do not let the potholder come in contact with the hot heating element in the Samsung oven.
- Do not allow aluminum foil or meat probe to contact heating elements.
Clean ventilating hoods frequently. Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter.
When ﬂaming foods under the hood, turn the fan on.
- Do not clean the door gasket. The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the gasket.
- Never keep pet birds in the kitchen. The health of birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes released during an oven self-clean cycle. Fumes may be harmful or fatal to birds. Move birds to a well-ventilated room.
- Clean in the self-clean cycle only parts listed in this manual. Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the broil pan , rack, utensils, and food.
- No commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating of any kind should be used in or on the outside of the oven. Use only a ceramic cooktop cleaner or the cleaner supplied with this appliance on the glass cooktop.

What’s included with your range
ABOUT SURFACE COOKING
- BEFORE COOKING
- Do not use the glass cooktop surface as a cutting board.
- Do not place or store items that can melt or catch fire on the glass cooktop, even when it is not being used.
- Turn the surface units on only after placing the cookware.
- Do not store heavy items above the cooktop surface. They could fall and damage it.
- DURING COOKING
- Do not place aluminum foil or plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders, or plastic wrappings on the range when it is in use. The hot air from the vent could melt plastics or ignite flammable items.
- Make sure the correct surface unit is turned on.
- Never cook directly on the glass. Always use cookware.
- Always place the pan in the center of the surface unit you are cooking on.
- Never leave surface units unattended while using a high heat setting. Boilovers cause smoking and/or greasy spllovers that may catch on fire.
- Turn the surface units off before removing cookware.
- Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very difficult to remove.
- AFTER COOKING
- Do not touch the surface units until they have cooled down.
- The surface may be still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched before it has cooled down sufficiently.
- Immediately clean spills on the cooking area to prevent a tough cleaning chore later.
- If cabinet storage is provided directly above the cooking surface, make sure that the items are infrequently used and can be safely stored in an area subjected to heat. Temperatures may be unsafe for items such as volatile liquids, cleaners or aerosol sprays.
About the radiant surface elements
The temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the temperature rises, the radiant element will glow red. To maintain the selected setting, the element will cycle on and off. The heating element retains enough heat to provide a uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle. For efficient cooking, turn off the element several minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to complete the cooking process.
- Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to cycle ON and OFF, even at the HI setting. This helps to prevent damage to the ceramic cooktop. Cycling at the HI setting is normal and can occur if the cookware is too small for the radiant element or if the cookware bottom is not flat.
Location of the radiant surface elements and controls
The radiant control knobs operate the radiant surface elements on the cooktop as shown below.
Hot surface indicator
- Comes on when the unit is turned on or hot to the touch.
- Stays on even after the unit is turned off.
- Glows until the unit is cooled to approximately 150°F.
- The cooking areas on your range are identified by permanent circles on the glass cooking surface. For the most efficient cooking, fit the pan size to the element size.
- Pans should not extend more than ½” to 1” beyond the cooking area.
- When a control is turned on, a glow can be seen through the glass cooking surface. The element will cycle on and off to maintain the preset heat setting, even at high settings.
