Tips and Tricks

Make sure “Cookminder” knob is in the “Manual” position
If you find that some of your burners have stopped working or that your clock has stopped working, make sure the “Cookminder” knob is in the “Manual” position.

Where do i find my stove’s model number?
Pull the burner unit out and on the bottom of the back left burner cover plate should be a metal tag with the model number. It will likely start with “RCI”.

Check Your Fuses
Folks who have problems with their Flairs might want to check out the fuses: There is one below the right rear burner that controls the convenience outlet and there is one in the left rear corner of the area above the oven that controls the “speed heat” burner.

Wiring Diagram for Your Stove
Have a professional remove the top panel of your stove and on the back of the panel there should be a wiring and schematic diagram.
