Full Answer

In the initial safety instruction section, consumer are warned about possible dangers from specific GE ranges. All units are given an anti-tip warning, as they are heavy enough to fall over and cause injury. Additionally, as Spectra models, like all ranges, generate high heat levels, a general warning about keeping flammable materials apart from the appliance is included.

In the operating instructions, the specific modes and features of the appliance are highlighted. Consumers are trained in the use of the parts of the range: the surface heating elements, display functions and oven controls. If the specific model has a self-cleaning feature, its engagement is also covered in this section.

With the care and cleaning and troubleshooting sections, GE covers basic maintenance of a Spectra model. The care manual often describes the recommended method of cleaning specific areas of the range, as well as optimal cleaners to use. For malfunctions and defects, the troubleshooting section typically covers common problems encountered by an owner, as well as specific settings to check prior to contacting a qualified technician.

The specific owner's manuals of GE's Spectra brand are downloadable in PDF format from the GE Appliance website. A model number search feature is located in the Manuals and Literature area of the Support section of the company website.
