Now that you've got your beautiful new LG range, it's time to get things all set up. (For future reference, you can also find these tips in your owner's manual.)
An anti-tip device is a bracket that helps keep your range from, well, tipping over. It's important that the anti-tip device is correctly positioned whenever you reposition the range (for cleaning, service, or any other reason). To check the device, follow these steps:
- Grasp the top rear edge of the range back guard. Carefully attempt to tilt it forward to verify that the anti-tip devices are engaged.
- Remove the warming drawer or storage drawer and visually inspect that the rear leveling leg is fully inserted into the anti-tip bracket.
- Refer to the installation manual for proper balancing and anti-tip bracket installation.
GOOD TO KNOW: GAS SHUT–OFF
- If you weren't shown the location of the range's gas shut-off valve and how to shut it off if necessary, contact your installer or a qualified technician.
SAFETY TIPS FOR DAILY USE
- Never block your range's vents (air holes). They allow the necessary air circulation for combustion and heat transfer. Air openings are located at the rear of the cooktop, at the top and bottom of the oven door, and at the bottom of the range under the warming drawer.
- Don't lift the cooktop surface. Lifting the cooktop can cause damage to the range or make it operate improperly.
- Do not clean the door gasket. The door gasket is necessary for a good seal, so care should be taken not to rub, damage or move the gasket.
- Only use aluminum foil in the oven as described in the user manual. Other foil placement can create a fire hazard or cause damage to the range.
RACK AND PAN PLACEMENT
- If cooking on two racks, place the oven racks in positions B and D.
- If cooking on three racks, place them in positions B, D, and F (or A in the upper oven of a double range).
- If baking with more than one pan, place the pans so that each one has at least 1" to 1 1/2" of air space around it.
HOW TO LIGHT A GAS SURFACE BURNER
- When turning a burner to "LITE", all the burners spark. For this reason, do not attempt to disassemble or clean around any burner while another burner is on. An electric shock may result.
- In the event of an electrical power failure, surface burners already in use will continue to operate normally until turned off.
- The gas surface burners can be lit with a match, if necessary. To ignite, 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. A clicking noise indicates the electric spark igniting the burner.
