WARNING!

ANTI-TIPDEVICE

All ranges can tip and injury could result.

To prevent accidental tipping of the range, attach an approved Anti-Tipdevice to the wall. (SeeInstalling the Anti-Tip Device in this section.) To check if the device is installed and engaged properly, carefully tip the range forward. TheAnti-Tipdevice should engage and prevent the range from tipping over.

If you pull the range out from the wall for any reason, make sure the Anti-Tipdevice is engaged when you push the range back against the wall.

For your safety, never use your range for warming or heating the room. Your oven and cooktop are not designed to heat your kitchen. Top burners should not be operated without cookware on the grate. Such abuse could result in fire and damage to your range and will void your warranty.

Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance. Explosions or fires could result.

Do not use oven for a storage area. Items stored in the oven can ignite.

Do not let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate in or near the range.

LOCATION

Do not locate the range where it may be subject to strong drafts. Any openings in the floor or wall behind the range should be sealed. Make sure the openings around the base of the range that supply fresh air for combustion and ventilation are not obstructed by carpeting or woodwork.

Your range, like many other household items, is heavy and can settle into soft floor coverings such as cushioned vinyl or carpeting. Use care when moving the range

on this type of flooring. It is recommended that the following simple and inexpensive instructions be followed to protect your floor.

The range should be installed on a sheet of plywood (or similar material). When the floor covering ends at the front of the range, the area that the range will rest on should be built up with plywood to the same level or higher than the floor covering.

This will allow the range to be moved for cleaning or servicing. Also, make sure your floor covering will

withstand 180°F. (See the Installation Safety Instructions section.)

Make sure the wall coverings around your range can withstand the heat generated (up to 200°F) by the range. (See the Installation Safety Instructions section.)

IMPORTANT!

Remove all tape and packaging. Make sure the burners are properly seated and level.

Lift up the cooktop (on models with standard twin burners) and remove any packing material under it.

Take the accessory pack out of the oven and/or drawer.

Check to be sure that no range parts have come loose during shipping.

Installation Instructions

1PROVIDE ADEQUATE GAS SUPPLY

Your range is designed to operate at a pressure of 4of water column on natural gas or, if designed for LP gas (propane or butane), 10of water column.

Make sure you are supplying your range with the type of gas for which it is designed.

This range is convertible for use on natural or propane gas. If you decide to use this range on LP gas, conversion must be made by a qualified LP installer before attempting to operate the range on that gas.

For proper operation, the pressure of natural gas supplied to the regulator must be between 4and 13of water column.

For LP gas, the pressure supplied must be between 10and 13of water column.

When checking for proper operation of the regulator, the inlet pressure must be at least 1greater than the operating (manifold) pressure as given above.

The pressure regulator located at the inlet of the range manifold must remain in the supply line regardless of whether natural or LP gas is being used.

A flexible metal appliance connector used to connect the range to the gas supply line should have an I.D. of 1/2and be 5 feet in length for ease of installation. In Canada, flexible connectors must be single wall metal connectors no longer than 6 feet in length.

2 CONNECT THE RANGE TO GAS

Shut off the main gas supply valve before disconnecting the old range and leave it off until the new hookup has been completed. Don’t forget to relight the pilot on other gas appliances when you turn the gas back on.

Because hard piping restricts movement of the range, the use of a CSA International-certifiedflexible metal appliance connector is recommended unless local codes require ahard-pipedconnection.

Never use an old connector when installing a new range. If the hard piping method is used, you must carefully align the pipe; the range cannot be moved after the connection is made.

To prevent gas leaks, put pipe joint compound on, or wrap pipe thread tape with Teflon* around, all male (external) pipe threads.

A.Install a manual gas line shut-offvalve in the gas line in an easily accessed location outside of the range. Make sure everyone operating the range knows where and how to shut off the gas supply to the range.

B.Install male 1/2flare union adapter to the 1/2NPT internal thread at inlet of regulator. Use a backup wrench on the regulator fitting to avoid damage.

B.When installing the range from the front, remove the 90° elbow for easier installation.

C.Install male 1/2or 3/4flare union adapter to the NPT internal thread of the manualshut-offvalve, taking care toback-uptheshut-offvalve to keep it from turning.

D.Connect flexible metal appliance connector to the adapter on the range. Position range to permit connection at the shut-offvalve.

E.When all connections have been made, make sure all range controls are in the off position and turn on the main gas supply valve. Use a liquid leak detector at all joints and connections to check for leaks in the system.

WARNING: DO NOT USE A FLAME TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.

When using test pressures greater than 1/2 psig to pressure test the gas supply system of the residence, disconnect the range and individual shut-offvalve from the gas supply piping. When using test pressures of 1/2 psig or less to test the gas supply system, simply isolate the range from the gas supply system by closing the individualshut-offvalve.
