Have the installer show you where the gas supply shut off valve is located so that you know how and where to turn off the gas to the range. job of checking for leaks. If the connections are not tight, small leaks can occur and will create a noticeable gas odor. Finding a gas leak is not a "do-it-yourself" procedure. Some leaks can only be found with the burner con trol in the "ON" position and must be per formed by a qualified service technician. In the event a burner goes out and gas escapes, turn the burner to the OFF position and open a window or door immediately. DO NOT attempt to use the range until the gas has had time to dissi pate. Wait at least 5 minutes before using the range. DO NOT repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in this manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician. Children SHOULD NOT be left alone or unattended in an area where appliances are in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance. CAUTION! Do not store items of interest to children above the range or behind it. If children should climb onto the appliance to reach these items, they could be seriously injured. NEVER use any part of the range for storage. Flammable materials can catch fire and plastic items may melt or ignite. If the range is near a window, be certain the cur tains do not blow over or near the range burners, griddle or broiler section; they could catch fire and cause serious damage and injury. DO NOT USE WATER ON GREASE FIRES! Turn appliance off and smother fire with baking soda or use a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.


NEVER let clothing, potholders, or other flammable materials come into contact with or too close to any Element, Burner, or Burner Grate until it has cooled. Fabric may ignite and result in personal injury. COOKING SAFETY: USE ONLY DRY POTHOLDERS. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may cause burns from the steam. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth in place of potholders. Do not let Potholders touch hot elements, hot burners, or burner grates. FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, wear proper apparel. Loose fitting garments or hanging sleeves should never be worn while using this appliance. Some synthetic fabrics are highly flammable and should not be worn while cooking. DO NOT use aluminum foil as a shield against food spills or drippings around the burners or control panel area. This could obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilated air. This can damage the finish of the range. WARNING! This appliance is for cooking! Based on safety considerations, never use the range to warm or heat a room. Such use can damage the range. DO NOT TOUCH THE BURNER GRATES OR THE IMMEDIATE SURROUNDING AREAS adjacent to the burners. When in use these areas may become hot enough to cause burns. NEVER leave the range unattended when using high flame settings. Boil-overs cause smoking and greasy spills that may ignite. More importantly, if the burner flames are smothered, unburned gas will escape into the room. See inside front cover regarding gas leaks. ONLY certain types of glass, heat proof glass ceramic, ceramic earthenware or other glazed utensils are suitable for range use. Other types of utensils may break with sudden temperature changes. Use only on low or medium heat settings according to the utensil manufacturer's directions DO NOT HEAT UNOPENED FOOD CONTAINERS. A buildup of pressure may cause the container to burst DURING COOKING, set the burner control so that the flame heats only the bottom of the pan and does not extend beyond the bottom of the pan. USE CAUTION to ensure that drafts like those from forced air vents or fans do not blow flammable materials toward the flames or push the flames so that they extend beyond the edges of the pot. ALWAYS use utensils that have flat bottoms, large enough to cover the burner. The use of undersized utensils could expose a portion of the flame and may result in ignition of clothing. It is also a waste of gas. TO MINIMIZE BURNS, ignition of flammable materials and unintentional spills, position handles of utensil inward so that it does not extend over adjacent work areas, cooking areas or the edge of the range. HOLD THE HANDLE of the pan to prevent movement of the utensil when stirring food. DO NOT USE the BBQ grill top section for cooking excessively fatty meats or products that promote flare ups. GREASE IS FLAMMABLE. Let hot grease cool before attempting to handle it. Avoid letting grease deposits to collect. Clean after each use. KEEP BURNER PORTS CLEAN. This is essential for proper lighting and maintenance of the burners. It is necessary to clean the burner ports when there is a boil over or when the burner does not light though the electronic igniters click. CLEAN THE RANGE-TOP SECTION WITH CAUTION. Avoid steam bums; do not use a wet sponge or cloth to clean the range while it is hot. Some cleaners produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface. Follow directions• provided by the cleaner manufacturer. BE SURE ALL RANGE CONTROLS ARE TURNED OFF and the range is cool before using any type of aerosol cleaner on or around the range. The chemical that produces the spraying action could, in the presence of heat, ignite or cause metal parts to corrode. Only an authorized service technician should perform Service. Technicians must disconnect the power supply before servicing this unit. CLEAN THE VENTILATOR HOOD and filters above the range frequently so grease deposits from cooking vapors do not accumulate on them. IN CASE OF FIRE or when intentionally using "flaming" liquor or other spirits on the range, follow hood manufacturer's instructions. INSTALL A SMOKE DETECTOR in or near the kitchen. TURN THE KNOB CONTROL TO OFF if a burner goes out and gas escapes. Open a window or door. DO NOT attempt to use the range until the gas has had time to dissipate. WARNING! To reduce the risk of tipping of the appliance, it must be secured by a properly installed anti-tip device. Verify that the anti-tip device is engaged per installation instructions (note: anti-tip device is required on all gas ranges.) SEE PAGE 38 When using the oven: DO NOT touch the interior surfaces of the oven or the exterior area immediately surrounding the door. Interior oven surfaces become hot enough to cause burns. The heat deflector, which deflects heat away from the range and the trim on the top and sides of the oven door, will also be hot when the oven is in use.



Place oven racks in desired position while oven is cool. If a rack must be removed while the oven is hot, do not let the potholders contact the hot infrared burner. Use care when opening the Oven Door; let hot steam or air escape before removing or replacing foods. DO NOT remove the door gasket. It is essential for a good seal during baking. BE CAREFUL not to damage the glass covering the infrared broiler in the gas oven. If the glass is damaged, air can enter the distribution box behind the glass, possibly resulting in an explosion. In the event that personal clothing catches fire, DROP AND ROLL immediately to extinguish flames. DO NOT obstruct the path of combustion or ventilation air. For safety reasons and to avoid equipment damage, never sit, stand, or lean on any part of the range. Servic e s hould only be perf orm ed by a qualified, Factory Authorized Service Technician. Technicians must disconnect the power supply before servicing this unit. CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 WARNING: The burning of gas cooking fuel generates some by products which are on the list of substances which are known by the State of California to cause Cancer or reproductive harm. California law requires business to warn customers of potential exposure to these substances. To minimize exposure to these substances, always operate this unit according to the instructions contained in this booklet and provide good ventilation to the room when cooking with gas. 1. Remove all packing materials and labels from your appliance. If the installer has not set up your appli ance, please do it before using it. Place the oven racks in the proper position before turning on the oven. 2. For correct rack position, check your recipe. The most frequently used position is number 3. The rack positions are numbered from the bottom to the top as in the floors of a building. CAUTION! Do not use aluminum foil to cover the oven racks or to line the oven. Heat can be trapped beneath the foil, this can cause damage to the oven and food may not cook correctly. 3. B e f o r e B A K I N G a n d B R O I L I N G Turn on the oven and broiler burners one at a time for 20 to 30 minutes each. This burns off the manufacturing oils used by the factory. Turn the oven burner on to 450°F and then the broiler burner on to "Broil". Be sure to turn on the ventilator above your range while these burners are on, as there will be an odor.

POWER-FLO™ BURNERS USING THE RANGE-TOP BURNERS LMC-SERIES Your new gas range is equipped with the latest in burner technology. The Power-FIo™ burners are designed for maximum control and the precise use of heat where it matters most. The large top-cap spreads the simmer flame over the bottom of a pot to avoid too much heat being concentrated in the center, thus avoiding burning of delicate sauces. The flame ring at the bottom stabilizes the main ports so as to achieve higher heat and maintain proper combustion of the burners, leading to greater efficiency and no yellow tips. It is always ON when the burner is in use. The burner should never be operated if the cap is not in place. All the range-top burners have electronic spark ELECTRONIC IGNITERS If a burner does not ignite, listen for the clicking sound. If the burner does not click, TURN OFF THE BURNER. Check the circuit breaker for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker. If the igniter still fails to operate, see page 25 "Troubleshooting", "Before calling For Service". VenturiFLAME HEIGHT ignition to eliminate continuously burning pilots. When the main burner flame is blown out, it will relight SIMMERING Your new range-top has exceptionally low simmering capabilities. The large cap serves as a heat diffuser to diffuser to spread out the heat to avoid having a center hot spot. Keep in mind that because of the high heat capacity of the outer burner, and the mass of the burner grates (they retain heat longer than lighter, conventional grates), the retained heat may continue to cook some foods after the burner has been turned off. When using the simmer feature, turn the main burner knob down to the simmer position. Should a strong draft or boil over extinguish the simmer flame it will relight automatically. 14 NOTE. If you are using propane gas, a slight pop flash may occur at the burner ports a few seconds after the burner has been turned "off". This "extension pop" is normal for propane gas. B U R N E R E F F I C I E N C Y AN D F L AM E CHARACTERISTICS It is necessary to keep the burner ports and the igniters -clean for proper lighting and efficient performance of the range-top burners. The burner flame should burn completely around the burner with no excessive noise or lifting. The flame should be blue in color and stable with no yellow tips. An improper air—gas mixture may cause either a burner flutter or a yellow tipped flame. It is recommended that flame adjustment be performed by a qualified technician. During initial use, foreign particles in the gas line, or dust in the air around the appliance may cause an orange flame. This will disappear with use. The correct height of the flame mainly depends on the size of the bottom of the cooking utensil. Following are some basic rules for selecting flame height. For safety reasons the flame must never extend be yond the bottom of the cooking utensil. Never allow flames to curl up the s i d e o f t h e p a n . Utensils which conduct heat slowly (such as glass-ceramic) should be used with medium to low flames. If you are cooking with a large pot, a larger flame can be used. Proper Flame Height CORRECT WRONG BURNER SETTINGS U S I N G T H E R A N G E T O P finer Department Stores, specialty cooking shops, or LMC-SERIES All the range-top burners have electronic spark ignition to The Rangetop Burner Valves have infinite settings and there are no fixed positions on the control knobs between HI and SIMMER. To turn the Rangetop burner on, push in the control knob and turn it counterclockwise to the "LITE" position. A clicking sound will be heard from the burner. When the gas has been ignited by the electronic spark igniter, turn the knob to the desired setting. Note: If the Igniter continues to click after the burner has been lit, turn the knob to a setting other than LITE, or HI. If the problem still persists, please call our Service Hotline at 866-402-4600. CAUTION! When turning on any RANGETOP burner, be sure to stop at the "LITE" position before turning the burner to a flame setting for cooking. If the burner is not lit and it is turned beyond the "LITE" position, to HI, MEDIUM, or LO, there will be a burst of flame when the burner does light. This could cause burns or damage to the surrounding counter top. BURNER GRATES The Burner Grates are of cast iron. PROPER COOKING UTENSILS For best results we recommend using Professional Cookware. These types of utensils can be found at your restaurant supply stores. If using regular cookware be very careful if pans have plastic handles, as our Power Flo Burners can melt or bubble the handles. THE CONTROL KNOBS The control knobs are readily associated with the burners they control. The RANGETOP control knobs are labeled in front of the burners. The oven control is placed slightly higher than the other control knobs. This is due to the physical size of the commercial type thermostats used on the product. CAUTION! Us e ext rem e c are when plac ing t he grill components into the grill compartment. Avoid hitting the ceramic igniter that could break, preventing operation of the grill. Do not leave the grill unattended while in use. Do not use Charcoal Briquettes, Ceramic Plates, or Coals of any kind. After removing all packaging materials, check to be certain that the grill components are correctly assembled in the grill box. The grill grates and the burner are assembled in the grill box from the factory. Note: Your grill racks are constructed from stainless steel and electro-polished to achieve a brilliant finish. After the first use, discoloration will occur This is normal and unavoidable. eliminate continuously burning pilots. When the main burner flame is blown out, it will relight. Also each burner has its own ignition module. If one module fails all others will continue to work and you are not inconvenienced. If a burner does not ignite, listen for the clicking sound. If the burner does not click, TURN OFF BURNER. Check the circuit breaker for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker. If the igniter still fails to operate, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-866-402-4600. Note. If you are using propane gas, a slight pop or flash may occur at the burner ports a few seconds after the burner has been turned "off". This "extension pop" is normal for propane gas. COOKING ON THE GRILL The burner should light within approximately 45 seconds. Preheat the Grill for approximately 15 minutes minimum. The hot grill sears the food, sealing in the juices. The longer the preheat time, the faster the meat browns and the darker the brand marks. Grilling requires high heat for optimum results. High heat is necessary for searing and proper browning. Most foods are cooked at medium heat settings for most of the cooking time. However, when grilling large pieces of meat or poultry, it may be necessary to turn the heat to a lower setting after the initial browning. This cooks the food through without burning the outside. 15 15


Foods cooked for a long period of time or basted with a sugary marinade may need a lower heat setting near the end of the cooking time. After grilling and the food has been removed, turn the knob to HI and burn off any excess grease that may have accumulated on the burner. Use a brass wire brush, dipped in hot water; to loosen food particles from the grate. When the grill has cooled, clean the drip tray, and compartment. If ash is particularly thick and impedes the airflow of the burner and prevents safe and efficient ignition of the burner, use a handheld vacuum cleaner and quickly vacuum away the ash when burner is cool. COOKING ON THE STAINLESS STEEL BBQ The burner should light within approximately 45 seconds Preheat the grill for approximately 15 minutes minimum. The hot grill sears the food, sealing in the juices. The longer the preheat time, the faster the meat browns and the darker the grill marks Grilling requires high heat for optimum results. High heat is necessary for searing and proper browning. Most foods are cooked at higher heat settings for most of the cooking time. However; when grilling large pieces of meat or poultry, it may be necessary to turn the heat to a lower setting after the initial browning. This cooks the food through without burning the outside Foods cooked for a long period of time or basted with a sugary marinade may need a lower heat setting near the end of the cooking time. After grilling and the food has been removed, turn the knob to HI and burn off any excess grease that may have accumulated on the stainless steel radiant. Use a brass wire brush, dipped in hot water, to loosen food particles from the grate. When the grill has cooled, clean the drip tray, radiant, heat deflector and compartment. Wipe the U-shaped burner with a damp cloth. CAUTION! Use extreme care when placing the grill components into the grill compartment. Avoid contacting the ceramic igniter that could break, preventing operation of the grill. The grill must be assembled as shown. The drip tray heat shields must be in place, and the burner must be properly positioned relative to the gas supply. Incorrect assembly of the grill may result in unsafe or hazardous conditions during operation. Do not leave the grill unattended while in use Do not use charcoal briquettes, ceramic plates, or coals of any kind. After removing all packaging materials, check to be certain that the grill components are correctly assembled in the grill box. The grill grates, stainless steel radiant and the burner are assembled in the grill box from the factory. Please see below for correct parts associated with the grill box. Note: Your grill racks are constructed from stainless steel and electro-polished to achieve a brilliant finish. After the first use‘ discoloration will occur. This is normal and unavoidable... GRILLING SUGGESTIONS Trim any excess fat from the meat before cooking. FATTY MEATS increase the likelihood of flare-ups. Cut slits in the remaining fat around the edges at 2" (51 mm) intervals. Brush on basting sauces towards the end of cooking. Add seasoning or salt after grilling. Early salting dries out meat. Use a Spatula or Tongs instead of a fork to turn the meat. A fork punctures the meat and lets the juices flow out. After the juices begin to bubble to the surface, turn the meat only once. This helps keep the juices in the meat. Some pieces of Meat and Poultry cook faster than others. Move those pieces to the cooler area of the grill until the rest have finished. The doneness of Meat is affected by the thickness of the cut. Chefs say it is impossible to have a rare doneness with a thin cut. TRUSIDE ™ GRILL RACKS The grill racks are double sided, two position grates, constructed of pure stainless steel. Use the concave side (channels up) for meats of .higher fat content (Steaks, hamburgers, sausage patties, etc.); use the convex side (channels down) with foods of lesser fat content (fish, vegetables, fruits, etc.) WARNING! Do not leave the BBQ section unattended while cooking!



HANDLING EXCESSIVE FLARE-UPS The intense heat needed for grilling may also cause flare-ups, due to grease and basting sauces dripping on the hot radiants. If flare-ups occur, use a long handled Spatula to move the food to another area of the grill. Should flare-ups become excessive, remove the food from the grill and turn off the burner Excessive flames occur when cooking meat with high fat concentration, i.e. 30% ground beef, untrimmed steaks, lamb chops, etc. Be Cautious when turning meat over, and never drop the meat on the grates. COOKING ON THE THERMO-GRIDDLE Description: The built in griddle is made of non rusting 3/8" thick stainless steel. This produces a surface that is easy to clean and never rusts. The Griddle has a aluminized steel tube burner that is lit by a hot surface igniter. The griddle should pre heat for five to ten minutes. A Chopping Block is available as an accessory and purchased separately. It is sized to fit on top of the griddle surface when griddle is not in use. The Burner is rated at 18,000 BTU/HR. CONTROL KNOB The griddle is thermostatically controlled with temperatures marked on the knob from 150 degrees F to 500 degrees F There are no fixed settings on the knob. Press and turn the knob counter-clockwise to the temperature setting. PREPARING THE GRIDDLE PRIOR TO FIRST USE, it is NECESSARY to wash the griddle plate with warm soapy water (to remove residual manufacturing oils) then rinse thoroughly with clear water. The griddle may be used without butter, margarine, or oil, however a very small amount may be used to flavor foods. COOKING ON THE GRIDDLE Check that the grease tray is tucked under the griddle plate overhang. Turn the knob to the cooking temperature to preheat the griddle. Preheat 15-20 Minutes (minimum). Add Butter, Margarine, Shortening or Oil for more flavor prior to cooking. OVEN USE Your Capital GAS Range is equipped with Bake and Broil Burners typical of those used in restaurants. The Oven Broiler burner is rated at 18,000 Btu/hr and the oven baking burner is rated at 30,000 Btu/hr. ELECTRIC HOT SURFACE IGNITER The Oven Bake and Broil Burners are equipped with an electric hot surface igniter and gas safety system. There will be a delay of approximately 45 seconds after the control knob has been turned until gas arrives at the burner. The burner will ignite after the gas reaches the burner. CONDENSATION During any cooking process there is moisture that evaporates from the food. The amount of moisture that condenses on the oven depends on the moisture content of the food and the temperature of the oven. The moisture will condense on any surface that is cooler than the inside of the oven, such as the control panel or the top of the door. USING CONVECTION BAKE AND REGULAR BAKE HOW TO SET THE OVEN FOR CONVECTION BAKE OR REGULAR BAKE Decide if you are going to use CONVECTION BAKE or REGULAR BAKE. These cooking modes are for baking or warming: using one, two, three or four racks (multi-rack cooking is recommended for CONVECTION BAKE only). If you are going to use Regular BAKE turn the oven control knob to the temperature used in the recipe. To use Convection Bake, simply set your cooking temperature as for BAKE then press the CONVECTION Button located on the front panel to start the Convection Fan. CONVECTION BAKE Convection BAKE is baking with a fan at the back of the oven to continuously circulate the hot air around the food. This circulating hot air heats and browns the surface of the food more effectively than in a standard oven. This allows most foods to be cooked at lower oven temperature or in less time if baked at the regular temperature. The air is re circulated and reheated. Uncovered, longer cooking foods such as large pieces of meat or other foods that can be cooked in low sided baking utensils or air leavened foods, are where you will see the most savings in cooking time. Using multiple rack at the same time will achieve a good time saving, as you can cook more food at the same time. The number of recipes requiring preheating of the oven is reduced considerably because the heat reaches the food faster as the hot air circulates around the food. NOTE: Convection Broil Is Not Available In This Model Pushing the Convection switch while BROILING will automatically cut the power to the broil burner igniter.


FOODS SUITABLE FOR CONVECTION BAKE USING YOUR OVEN SELECTING UTENSILS FOR CONVECTION BAKE LMC-SERIES REGULAR BAKE Air Leavened Foods (angel food cake, soufflés, cream puffs, meringue shells) Appetizers Breads Main Dishes Oven Meals (1 to 4 racks) Cookies Pies Poultry Roasts CONVERTING RECIPES TO CONVECTION BAKE Low sided baking utensils will provide the best results, as the hot air can reach all sides of the utensil easier. The oven temperature can be left the same as the recipe and the food cooked a shorter period of time. The temperature can be lowered 25°F to 50°F and the food will probably take the same length of time to cook as the recipe states. If you find that food is adequately browned on the outside, but not done in the center, lower the temperature another 25°F and add to baking time. When reducing the temperature always check the food for doneness, a minute or two before the minimum time stated in the recipe, as time can always be added. Some recipes will cook faster than others. There is no way to predict exactly how long each recipe will take when you convert it to convection. Convection will be easier to use after you have used it a few times as you will begin to understand the way it bakes. Cooking by convection does not require any specially designed baking utensils. You probably have many utensils in your kitchen that are suitable to use. When choosing a baking utensil, consider the material, the size and shape as they all affect the baking time, the appearance of the finished product. Metal Bake Ware (aluminum, steel and cast iron) all result in the fastest cooking time and the best end product. Aluminum pans work best for all types of baked goods. For the best browning, use a pan with a dark or dull finish that absorbs heat, when baking pies and breads. A shiny finish works best for cakes and cookies, since it reflects some of the heat and provides a tenderer surface. Cookie sheets with only one lip will give the best results, as the heated air can circulate all around the sides of the food. For Roasting, use bottom of the broil pan and elevate the meat on a metal roasting rack. Glass-ceramic or glass utensils do not conduct heat as well as metal, but they can be used. Use them for foods that do not require a dark brown crust or crisping, such as soufflés. Baked items cook more quickly and evenly if they are individually smaller in size, i.e. two or three small foods do better than one large piece. When single food items are baked, always center the rack. If several foods are being baked, space them evenly on the racks. RACK POSITIONS One to four racks can be used simultaneously during convection baking. Place the rack(s) in the desired position before turning the oven on. Store the unused racks outside of the oven. Rack position 3 (second from bottom) will probably be used the most for single rack convection baking. When baking on more than one rack you do not need to stagger the pans. Allow at least 1" of space between the oven walls and the pans so the heated air can circulate. Pans should be placed in the center of the oven, stacked above each rack. Bake is cooking with hot convected air without the use fan. The air movement comes from natural convection. As the air heats, it moves to the top of the oven. This oven mode is the same as you have been using for baking on one or two racks. FOODS SUITABLE FOR BAKE Appetizers Pies, Cakes Breads Desserts Main Dishes Oven Meals (1 to 2 racks) Poultry Roasts RACK POSITIONS One or two racks can be used simultaneously during bake. Place the rack(s) in the desired position before turning the oven on. Store any unused racks out of the oven. CAUTION: Aluminum foil should never be used to cover the oven racks or to line the oven bottom. The trapped heat can damage the porcelain and the heated air cannot adequately reach the food being baked. Rack position 3 (third from bottom) will probably be used the most for single rack baking. If you are using two racks simultaneously, be sure to check the food on the bottom rack sooner than the minimum time. The food on the lower rack position may cook slightly faster than the food on the upper rack, particularly if you are using large baking utensils so that one is not directly above the other and the heated air can circulate freely around each pan. Allow at least one inch of space between the oven walls and the pans. If using large or commercial size baking utensils the food may take a few extra minutes as the air cannot circulate as freely as it does with a smaller pan. When using commercial size baking utensils, use only one rack as the heat does not have the room to circulate.


GETTING THE BEST RESULTS U S I N G Y O U R O V E N Notes: LMC-SERIES FOOD SAFETY BAKING: Follow the recipe amount and ingredients, including the size and shape of the baking utensil recommended in the recipe. Do not open the oven door "just to peek," use the interior oven light and look through the window. Do not use the oven for storage, especially when baking in the oven. Extra utensils, not being used for baking, can affect the food product, baking time, browning, and end result. If you are using glass utensils, lower the temperature 25°F. Use a minute timer and set it for the minimum time suggested in the recipe. CONVECTION BAKING Follow the first three recommendations above. Metal utensils give better results, in convection, than do glass baking utensils. If you use glass, it usually is not necessary to lower the temperature an additional 25°F. Use a minute timer and set it for less than minimum time suggested in the recipe. The first time you use a recipe in the convection mode, be sure to note the new baking time on your recipe for future reference Be sure to read the basic information on convection before using the oven for the first time, page 14-16. Keep in mind that convection baking results vary, depending on type of product.. 19 HIGH ALTITUDE BAKING Recipes and baking times vary if you are baking at high altitude. For accurate information, write to the. Agriculture Extension Service. Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado 80521. Specify the type of information and the baking mode (convention bake or bake) you need, i.e. cakes, breads, etc. There may be a cost for the bulletins. TO USE THE OVEN ON LOW TEMPERATURE The oven can be used to keep hot food hot, to dehydrate food, to warm plates, for slow cooking (as in a crock pot), and to defrost foods. You can keep hot, cooked food at serving temperature. Set the oven to the temperature suggested in the chart. Rare meat must be eaten when it is removed from the oven, as continues cooking from its own heat. To keep food moist, it must be covered with aluminum foil or a lid. To dehydrate food, follow suggestions in a recipe. To warm plates, check with the dishware manufacturer for the recommended temperatures. To use the oven as a low cooker set the oven control knob to 255°F. Place the food in the oven in a pan with a tight fitting lid. Follow recipes for this type of cooking. To thaw uncooked frozen food, set the oven control knob to "warm". Be sure the food is tightly wrapped in foil. Thaw the food just enough. Cook immediately. Do not refreeze. To thaw frozen cooked food, set the oven knob to 170°F. Loosen the freezer wrapping. Do not use plastic wrap or wax paper in the oven. According to the United States Department of Agriculture you should not hold foods at temperatures between 40°F to 140°F for longer than 2 hours. USING BROIL Turn the knob to broil position The HEATING indicator light on the valve panel cycles on and off with burner to let the user know when the burner is lit. This cycling process is used to evenly distribute and safety control the intense heat that the broil burner produces. The cycling feature prevents the burner from producing range-damaging heat. RACK POSITION The rack position depends on the type and thickness of the food. Thick pieces of meat or poultry (1" or more) would typically be broiled or convection broiled on rack position 4. Steaks, chops and hamburgers would typically be broiled on rack position 4. If top browning casseroles or bread, the thickness of the food will indicate the position. Casseroles and bread would typically be browned on rack position 4 (see instructions below for more information). REGULAR BROIL Broil is cooking by intense infrared radiant heat supplied by the broil burner located at the top of the oven. FOODS SUITABLE FOR BROILING: Appetizers Rack position #3 or #4 Meats, Poultry, Fish (under 1") Rack position #4 Top Browning: Casseroles and breads Rack position #2 or #3 NOTE: The broiler pan for both broiling should be placed all the way to the back of the oven and centered on the Burner for best results. USING A MEAT THERMOMETER TO BROIL To accurately determine the doneness of a thick steak or chop (1-1/2) inches thick or more), use a meat thermometer. Insert the point of the thermometer into the side of the meat to the center or thickest part of the meat but keeping away from bones. Cook the first to 90°F for rare meat. Cook the first side 100°F for medium to well done. Cook the second side to the desired degree for the doneness you want, 130° F to 140°F for rare, and 145°F for medium rare, 150°F for medium and 160°F to 165°F for well done. If you are cooking pork, cook to 160°F. A large two-piece broil pan comes with your new range. When you are broiling, always use both pieces. Do not cover the grid with aluminum foil. This slotted grid allows the grease drippings to flow into the bottom of the pan keeping it away from the intense heat of the infra-red broiler burner. This help to minimize the smoking and spattering of the grease. TO GET THE BEST RESULTS OPEN DOOR BROILING NOTE: Open Door Broiling is also possible with the Precision Series oven. However, the oven door hinge DOES NOT have a dedicated Broil-Stop position. To achieve the best results for Open-Door Broiling, open oven door approximately 6-8 WARNING! NEVER leave pets and/or small children unattended while oven is in the Open Door Broiling position. Front panel and knobs may get hot to the touch as the heat is directly escaping to the front section of the oven. Wear oven mitts and always use Caution! USING YOUR OVEN Defrost the food before starting to cook. Put food on broiler pan, center and push broiler pan to the very back of the oven rack. Set a minute timer for the minimum time to check the food. Steaks should be at least one inch thick, if rare doneness is desired. It is difficult to get rare with meat that is thinner. After half the total cooking time, turn the food over only once. It is not necessary to turn over thin foods (fillet of fish, Ham slices, etc.). Liver slices must be turned over. Use a two-piece broil pan. Two-piece broil pans are designed to minimize smoke and spatter. DO NOT cover the slotted grid with aluminum foil. This will catch the grease and could cause a fire. When top browning use metal or glass-ceramic bake ware. DO NOT use heat-proof Glass or Pottery as this type of glassware cannot withstand the intense heat of the Broiler Burner. Place the vertical positioning rod into the hole located on the bottom left side of the oven can. NOTE: You cannot use the broiler burner and the bake burner at the same time. When one is on, the other cannot be turned on! LMC-SERIES

All stainless steel parts of the appliance can be cleaned with hot soapy water, rinsed, dried and buffed to a shine with a soft, heavy pile cloth. Make sure you clean in the DIRECTION OF THE GRAIN and never in circular motions as this may scratch the stainless steel. When cleaning this range or range-top: 1. Always use the mildest cleaning procedure first. Some brands of cleaners of the same type are harsher than others, read their directions. A scent or a propellant can make a difference in the product. Read the ingredients. Try on a small area first. 2. To avoid marring the surface always rub metal finishes in the direction of the polish (grain) lines. The cleaner will be more effective when used in the direction of the polish lines. 3. Use only clean sponges, soft cloths, paper towels for cleaning or scouring (Use only soap pads with soap still in them. An empty pad can scratch), as recommended in this section. 4. Rinse all parts thoroughly and wipe dry to avoid water marks. NOTE: BRAND NAMES - In this section on cleaning, the use of name brands is intended only to indicate a type of cleaner. This is not constitute an endorsement. The omission of any name brand cleaner does not imply its adequacy or inadequacy. Many products are regional in distribution and can be found in the local markets and department stores. RANGETOP Turn off all the Burners and allow the Grates to cool before starting to clean the Range top. Do not clean hot surfaces. This could burn you. Clean only when the Range or Range top has cooled to room temperature. BURNER GRATES When lifting the grates, be careful as they are heavy. Place them on a protected surface, so they won't scratch the surface they are laid on. The Burner Grates are Matte Porcelain Enamel over Cast Iron. When cool they may be wiped clean while on the Range top using hot soapy water, then rinsed and wiped dry. The burner grates will not rust as they are matte porcelain enamel on both sides for durability. The occasional use of mild abrasive cleaners such as Bon-Ami®, Soft Scrub®. Abrasive cleansers, used vigorously or too often, can eventually harm the enamel. Apply with a damp sponge, rinse thoroughly and dry. The Porcelain may pop of the edge of the Grates due to rapid temperature change when the Burners are turned on, Do not be concerned as this does not result in the deterioration of the Grates. The Cast Iron soon darkens to blend with the porcelain enamel. Be careful when wiping an area where the porcelain has popped off, as the edges may be sharp. BURNERS For proper lighting and performance keep the Burners clean. It is necessary to clean the Burners if they do not light even through the igniter clicks, after a severe boil over, or when the flame does not turn blue. When the grates and burners are cool, remove the Grate. Burner Cap and the Retention Ring. All are easily removed by lifting them to separate the parts. Wash these parts in hot soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly. The Burner Caps are porcelain enamel coated. Follow the directions given for the burner grates for detailed cleaning instructions. A bristle brush can be used to clean out the toothed burner ports, if necessary. After cleaning, it is important to make sure the Locating Pin at the bottom of the Burner Cap is properly aligned with the Retention Ring and Burner Base. Incorrect alignment will produce a potentially dangerous flame and poor burner performance. If the flames are uneven, over sized, or yellow, check the alignment of the burner components when the burner is cool.


IGNITERS C A R E A N D M A I N T E N A N C E Be sure the oven and door are cool before you start to LMC-SERIES DOOR GASKET Wipe with a water-dampened cotton swab. Be careful not to damage the igniter. (See illustration on previous page). CONTROL KNOBS - RANGETOP AND OVEN These are made of die-cast metal with plastic inserts for easier gripping. They can be cleaned in hot, soapy water. To remove the Knobs from the control panel, grasp the knob and pull straight forward. Wash, do not soak. Rinse and dry thoroughly. It is important to replace these knobs on the correct gas valve on the Control Panel. LOW BACK, OR HIGH SHELF (IF INSTALLED) Depending on the model, these are constructed of all stainless steel. Use the mildest cleaning procedure first— hot soapy water, rinse and dry. If the panel has food soil remaining, try a general kitchen cleaner, such as Fantastic, Simple Green®, or Formula 409. For hard to clean soil use a stainless steel cleaner such as, Bon-Ami®,, Carneo®,, or Bar Keepers Friend. Apply cleaner with a damp sponge, rinse thoroughly and dry. Always scrub lightly in the direction of the grain. Do not use a steel wool pad, it will scratch the surface. To touch up noticeable scratches in the stainless steel, sand very lightly with dry 100 grit emery paper, rubbing in the direction of the grain. After cleaning use a stainless steel polish, such as Stainless Steel Magic. If the rear top burners are used extensively on high it is possible for the vertical stainless steel panel to discolor from the burner heat. This discoloration can be removed by using Revere Ware Stainless Steel Cleaner. OVEN AND DOOR INTERIOR If the oven door comes off track, or becomes misaligned, realignment can be achieved by following this simple procedure: Open the door and hold it all the way open. Close the hinge latches. Once both hinges are locked, gently lift the door up and partially out until the door is evenly aligned. Evenly slide the door back into place and check to assure the hinges rest in the center of each door hinge roller. With the oven door fully open, unlock hinge latches and the door is ready to close again. Call our service technician if you encounter difficulty. clean them. They are Porcelain Enamel coated. It is acid resistant, but not acid proof. Therefore, acidic foods, such as vinegar, rhubarb, alcohol, citric juices or milk, or sugars should be wiped off and not allowed to bake on. Try mild cleaners, such as: Bon-Ami®, Ammonia, Ammonia and water, or Soft Scrub®. Apply the cleaner on a damp sponge or cloth, scrub lightly, rinse thoroughly then dry with a soft cloth or paper towel. If food has burned onto the oven and is difficult to remove, soak the spots with a cloth saturated with household ammonia. Allow it to soak for an hour or two, with the door closed. The food soil should be easy to remove with a damp soapy cloth or mild abrasive. OVEN RACKS AND ROLLERS The oven racks and rollers are chrome plated steel. Chrome cleaners, such as Soft Scrub, Cameo or Bar Keepers Friend can be applied with a damp sponge following the manufacturers instructions. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Powdered cleaners such as Bon-Ami® or Comet can be applied with a damp sponge or cloth then rubbed lightly to clean, then rinse and dry thoroughly.. Harsh Cleaners (commercial oven cleaners), such as Easy Off® or Dow, can be used on the racks, however, some commercial oven cleaners can cause darkening and discoloration. Test the cleaner on a small part of the rack and check for any discoloration before cleaning the entire rack. Allow to stand for 15 to 20 minutes after application. Rinse thoroughly and dry. FRAMES, SIDES, DOOR EXTERIOR, HEAT DEFLECTOR Unless painted, these parts are made of stainless steel,. Follow the directions for the Backguard (see page 28). Take care when cleaning the door top. Do not let water or cleaners run down the door vents. If water or cleaners spill into the vents, they may streak the glass inside the door. POWER FAILURE The Broiler and Oven Burners cannot be turned on during a power failure. To light the sealed top burners, turn the control knob to "Lite" then hold a lighted match to the port ring. After the flame is burning all the way around the burner, adjust the flame to the desired height. It is necessary to light each burner individually. Do not light more than one burner at a time. Turn off all burners if left unattended! Use a general kitchen spray cleaner, such as Formula 409 or Fantastik®. Spray it and blot dry with a cloth. Do not rub. Do not remove or damage the gasket. OVEN LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT For oven light bulb replacement use only a 40 watt, 120 volt appliance light bulb. These are available in supermarkets. DO NOT use a standard light bulb in any oven, the heat will break it. TO REPLACE THE LIGHT BULB: 1. The oven must be cool prior to changing the light bulb. 2. Turn the oven light bulb switch to the off position. 3. Let the cover and the bulb cool completely. 4. Remove the light cover, by turning the cover to the left (counterclockwise) to unscrew it. 5. Remove the burnt out bulb. Replace it with a 40 watt appliance light bulb only. 6. Replace cover. Turn circuit breaker back on, if turned off. (See Caution below). CAUTION: Be sure the oven light switch (see page 12 #8 & page 13 #9) is in the OFF position and the light cover is cool. If the bulb comes loose from its base, turn off the power to the oven at the circuit breaker panel, before at tempting to remove the bulb base from the socket. POWER FAILURE The Broiler and Oven Burners cannot be turned on during a power failure. To light the sealed top burners, turn the control knob to "Lite" hold a lighted match to the port ring. After the flame is burning all the way around the burner, adjust the flame to the desired height. It is nec essary to light each burner individually. Do not light more than one burner at a time.

Lift the Range from the skid with a soft wheel dolly. Support the range uniformly across the bottom VENTILATION UNIT STANDARD COUNTER INSTALLATION RECOMMENDATIONS 2. The depth of overhead cabinets installed on either side of the hood is 13". 3. A 30-inch minimum clearance is required

To remove door, open the door completely, close the hinge latches and release the door. Remove door by lifting and pulling from the sides. Make sure gas and electric connections are made, anti-tip device is installed, and the back guard in stalled prior to placing the range in position. Measure the height of the counter top and adjust the range height to match countertop height by adjusting front and rear leveling feet. Slide the Range in place and ensure that the range is level. Reinstall the Kick Plate, Top Grates, Oven Door(s), Drip Pan tray(s), and make sure Burner Caps are seated firmly located into position. WARNING: DO NOT lift the range by the oven door handles, Do not remove the griddle and grill sections! STEP 2: VENTILATION REQUIREMENTS It is strongly recommended that a suitable CAPITAL exhaust hood be installed above the range. Downdraft ventilation should NOT be used. The table below indicates the PERFORMANCE Series Hoods, by model number, that are recommended for use with all ranges. 1. SELECT HOOD AND BLOWER MODELS: SIZE SHIPPING WEIGHT 30" xx 36" xx 48" xxxxx 60" xxxxx For wall installations, the hood width must, at a minimum, equal the width of the range's cooking sur face. Where space permits, a hood larger in width than the cooking surface may be desirable for improved ventilation performance. HOOD (24" DEEP X UNIT WIDTH) BLOWER CFM's 60" RANGE = 1200 CFM 48" RANGE =1200 CFM 36" RANGE =1200 CFM 30" RANGE = 600 CFM CAUTION: Ventilation hoods and blowers are d e s i g n e d fo r u s e w i th s i n g l e w a l l d u c ti n g . However, some local building codes or inspectors may require double wall ducting. Consult local building codes and or local agencies, before starting, to assure that hood and duct installation will meet local requirements. CAPITAL Hood blower speeds are variable to reduce noise and loss of heated or air-conditioned household air when maximum ventilation is not required. Normally the maximum blower speed is only required when using the grill section. 2. HOOD PLACEMENT: For best smoke elimination, the lower edge of the hood should be installed a minimum of 30" to a maximum of 36" above the range cooking surface. STEP 3: CABINET PREPARATION 1. The range is a freestanding unit. If the unit is to be placed adjacent to cabinets, the clearances shown in fig. 1 are required. The same clearances apply to island installations, except for the overhead cabinets, which must have a space wide enough to accept a suitable flared island hood, as indicated in fig. 1. Note: Capital does NOT offer an island style ventilation hood at this times. between the top of the range and the bottom of an unprotected cabinet. 4. Any openings in the wall behind the range and in the floor under the range must be sealed. 5.

NOTE: INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS Fig-3 LMC-SERIES ALL LMC-SERIES RANGES Are provided with 3” Back Guard. 1. For 3” Secure both Brackets to the wall using the screws included. 1-7/16” from the Back Trim sur face to the center of hole of Bracket. see Fig-1 2. For Low Back & High Shelf Accessories. see Fig-2. Fig-1 Fig-2 16-3/8” For High Shelf ELECTRICAL SUPPLY, ALL RANGES Installation of All LMCR ranges must be planned so that the rough-in of the junction box for the receptacle or conduit connection allows for maximum clearance to the rear of the unit. This is especially critical if the junction box in the wall is directly behind the junction box of the unit when the unit is installed. To minimize binding when the unit is connected to the receptacle or junction box, orient the receptacle or conduit connector, and slide back into position. POWER REQUIREMENTS: 120VAC, 60 HZ single phase 30" Range – 7 Amps. Max. 36" Range – 7 Amps. Max. 48" Range – 15.5 Amps. Max. 60" Range not available in LMCR series of Ranges CAUTION! Disconnect the electrical supply cord from the wall outlet before servicing the range. Follow all governing codes and ordinances when grounding. In the absence of codes follow the National Electrical Codes ANSI / NFPA No. 70 (current issue). GROUNDING METHOD The range is factory fitted with a power supply and cord with a three-prong grounding plug. It must be plugged into a matching grounding type receptacle connected to a correctly polarized 120 Volt circuit. If the circuit does not have a grounding type receptacle, it is the responsibility of the installer to have the existing receptacle changed to a properly grounded and polarized receptacle in accordance with all applicable local codes and ordinances. The receptacle replacement shall be in accordance with the national Electrical Code. WARNING! The third prong SHOULD NOT, under any circumstances, be cut or removed!


STEP 4: INSTALLING ANTI-TIP DEVICE For all Ranges, an anti-tip device MUST be installed as per these instructions. WARNING! ALL RANGES CAN TIP INJURY TO PERSONS COULD RESULT INSTALL ANTI-TIP DEVICES PACKED WITH RANGE SEE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTION WARNING: RANGE TIPPING HAZARD! All ranges can tip and injury can result. To prevent accidental tipping of the range, attach it to the floor, wall or cabinet by installing the Anti-Tip Device sup plied. A risk of tip-over may exist if the appliance is not in stalled in accordance with these instructions. If the range is pulled away from the wall for cleaning, service or any other reason, ensure that the Anti-Tip Device is properly re-engaged when the range is pushed back against the wall. In the event of abnormal usage (such as a person standing, sitting, or leaning on an open door); failure to take this pre caution can result in tipping of the range. Personal injury might result from spilled hot liquids or from the range itself. WARNING: ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD! Use extreme caution when drilling holes into the wall or floor. There may be concealed electrical wires located behind the wall or under the floor. Identify the electrical circuits that could be affected by the installation of the Anti-Tip Device, then turn off power to these circuits. Failure to follow these instructions may result in electrical shock or other personal injury. CAUTION: PROPERTY DAMAGE! Contact a qualified installer or contractor to deter mine the proper method for drilling holes through the wall or floor material (such as ceramic tile, hardwood, marble, etc.) DO NOT slide range across unprotected floor. Failure to follow these instructions may result in dam age to wall or floor coverings. TOOLS NEEDED FOR INSTALLATION OF ANTI-TIP DEVICE! 1.Screwdriver, Phillips 2.Drill, electric or hand 3.Measuring tape or ruler 4.1/8" drill bit (wood or metal wall or floor) 5.3/16" anchors, drywall, or concrete, 2 each (not re quired if mounting bracket is being attached to solid wood or metal. 6.Hammer 7.Pencil or other marker IMPORTANT INSTALLATION INFORMATION The Anti-Tip Bracket may be attached on the floor. See Bottom drawing. The thickness of the wall or floor may require use of longer screws, available at your local hardware store. In all cases at least one (1) of the bracket mounting screws must be fastened to solid wood or metal on each side. Use appropriate anchors when fastening the mounting bracket to any material other than hardwood or metal. MOUNTING ANTI-TIP BRACKET: The alternative floor mounted bracket shall be installed as follows: Place bracket on floor in position shown in Figure below. Secure to floor or wall stud. Later, when unit is installed, the adjustable leg will slide under the bracket STEP 5: GAS CONNECTION AND HOOK-UP Verify the type of gas being used at the installation site matches the gas type of the range. As shipped from the factory, units are configured for use with Natural Gas or Propane (LP). Make certain the range matches the type of gas available at the location. For installation of the appliance at high altitude, please consult your local gas company for their recommenda tion of the correct orifice sizes and any other necessary adjustments that will provide proper gas combustion at specified altitudes. NOTE: Capital DOES NOT supply ranges to match vary ing altitudes. Orifices to adjust for combustion for differ ing altitudes may be purchased through Capital Cooking Equipment by calling our Parts Department at 1-866-4024600, or email us at customerser


CAUTION! When connecting unit to Propane (LP) gas. Make certain the propane tank is equipped with its own high-pressure regulator in addition to the pressure regulator supplied with the appliance the pressure & the gas supplied to the appliance regulator must not, exceed 14" (37 mb) water column. A pressure test point is provided near the regulator behind the kick plate. NATURAL GAS REQUIREMENTS: Inlet Connection: 1/2" N.P.T. Min. 5/8" Dia. Flex Line. Supply Pressure: 6" to 14" W.C. PROPANE (LP) GAS REQUIREMENTS: Inlet Connection: 1/2" N.P.T. Min. 5/8" Dia, Flex Line. Supply Pressure: 11" to 14" W.C. A Regulator is required at the LP source to provide a maximum of 14" W.C. pressure to the range regulator. HOOK UP WARNING! Gas line cannot be run inside back cover of range. Run gas line in channel in back of range. A manual shut off valve must be installed external to the range in an accessible location from the front for shutting off the gas supply when required. The supply line MUST NOT protrude beyond the back of the range. Ensure that the gas supply is turned OFF at the external shut-off valve before connecting the range. The gas supply connection must be made by an experienced technician and in accordance with local codes or ordinances. In the absence of local codes or ordinances, please refer to National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1 / NFPA54- Current Issue. Use 5/8" diameter flex line to connect between the gas supply and the appliance manifold pipe, which exists at the upper left rear of the appliance. The appliance manifold pipe connection is 1/2". Use caution to avoid crimping the 5/8" flex line. NOTE: the flex line for the gas supply must be metal and approved by an approved certifying agency (AGA, CGA, CSA, UL or CUL). NEVER use a hose made of rubber or other synthetic material as the heat may cause the hose to melt and develop leaks, thus causing fires, physical and property damage. Always use a pipe sealant approved for gas installations dope or Teflon tape on the pipe threads, and be careful not to apply excessive pressure when tightening the fittings. Leak testing of the appliance shall be in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. Turn on gas and check supply line connections for leaks using a soap solution. Never use a CAUTION! The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shut-off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 112 psig (3.5kPa.). The Appliance and its individual shut off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of the system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5kPa.). When checking the manifold gas pressure, the inlet pressure to the regulator should be at least 6.0". DO NOT attempt any adjustment of the pressure regulator. 2-1/2” Maximum Protrusion From Wall For Gas Supply TESTING AND ADJUSTMENTS Install any loose components, such as burner caps and grates, oven racks that may have been removed earlier to facilitate moving the appliance. Be certain that burner caps seats properly into the alignment slots in the burner bases. Before testing operation of the appliance, verify that the unit and the gas supply have been carefully checked for leaks and that the unit has been connected to the electrical power supply. Turn the manual gas shut off valve to the open position. Check the operation of the sealed gas burners by pushing and turning each knob counterclockwise to "Hl". The burner igniters will click until the flame ignites. Burner flames should be BLUE and stable with no yellow tips, excessive noise, or lifting of the flame from the burner. If any of these conditions exist, check that the air shutter (grill and griddle only) or burner ports are not blocked or clogged. Remove any blockages that exist. If the flame is too yellow, indicating insufficient air, adjust the shutter counterclockwise to increase air inlet (grill and griddle only). The sealed top burner flames should be approximately 1" to 1-1/4" High. CAUTION! A qualified technician must make burner adjustments at the time of installation. Improper or lack of adjustments may cause harmful by-products or void your warranty!
