3 ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS

Electrical Requirements

120-volt,60 Hertz, properly grounded branch circuit protected by a15-ampor20-ampcircuit breaker or time delay fuse.

Extension Cord Cautions

Because of potential safety hazards associated with certain conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of

an extension cord. However, if you still elect to use an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed,3-wiregrounding-typeappliance extension cord and that the current carrying rating of the cord in amperes be equivalent to, or greater than, the branch circuit rating.

Grounding

IMPORTANT—(Pleaseread carefully)

FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE PROPERLY GROUNDED.

Preferred Method

Ensure proper ground exists before use

The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a 3-prong(grounding) plug which mates with a standardthree-pronggrounding wall receptacle to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from this appliance.

The customer should have the wall receptacle and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the receptacle is properly grounded.

Where a standard two-prongwall receptacle is encountered, it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to have it replaced with a properly groundedthree-prongwall receptacle.

DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND) PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD.

A word about GFCI’s – GFCI’s are not required or recommended for gas range receptacles.

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI’s) are devices that sense leakage of current in a circuit and automatically switch off power when a threshold leakage level is detected. These devices must be manually reset by the consumer. The National Electrical Code requires the

use of GFCI’s in kitchen receptacles installed to serve countertop surfaces. Performance of the range will not be affected if operated on a GFCI-protectedcircuit but occasional nuisance tripping of the GFCI breaker is possible.

3ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS (CONT.)

A.Usage Situations where Appliance Power Cord will be Disconnected Infrequently.

An adapter may be used only on a 15-ampcircuit. Do not use an adapter on a20-ampcircuit. Where local codes permit, aTEMPORARY CONNECTION may be made to a properly groundedtwo-prongwall receptacle by the use of aUL-listedadapter, available at most hardware stores. The larger slot in the adapter must be aligned with the larger slot in the wall receptacle to provide proper polarity in the connection of the power cord.

Temporary Method

(Adapter plugs not permitted in Canada)

Align large prongs/slots

Ensure proper ground and firm connection before use

CAUTION: Attaching the adapter ground terminal to the wall receptacle cover screw does not ground the appliance unless the cover screw is metal, and not insulated, and the wall receptacle is grounded through the house wiring. The customer should have the circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the receptacle is properly grounded.

When disconnecting the power cord from the adapter, always hold the adapter with one hand. If this is not done, the adapter ground terminal is very likely to break with repeated use. Should this happen, DO NOT USE the appliance until a proper ground has again been established.

3ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS (CONT.)

B.Usage Situations where Appliance Power Cord will be Disconnected Frequently.

Do not use an adapter plug in these situations because disconnecting of the power cord places undue strain on the adapter and leads to eventual failure of the adapter ground terminal. The customer should have the 2-prongwall receptacle replaced with athree-prong(grounding) receptacle by a qualified electrician before using the appliance.

The installation of appliances designed for mobile home installation must conform with the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standard, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280 (formerly the Federal Standard for Mobile Home Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD, Part 280) or, when such standard is not applicable, the Standard for Manufactured Home Installations, latest edition (Manufactured Home Sites, Communities and Set-Ups),ANSI A225.1, latest edition, or with local codes. In

Canada, mobile home installation must be in accordance with the current CAN/CSA Z240/MH Mobile Home Installation Code.

Electric Disconnect

Locate disconnect plug on the range back.

Pinch sides of connector and pull out of range back.

5CHECK IGNITION OF SURFACE BURNERS

Operation of all cooktop and oven burners should be checked after the range and gas supply lines have been carefully checked for leaks.

Electric Ignition Models

Select a top burner knob and simultaneously push in and turn to LITE position. You will hear aclicking sound indicating proper operation of the spark module. Once the air has been purged from the supply lines, burners should light within 4 seconds. After burner lights, rotate knob out of theLITE position. Try each burner in succession until all burners have been checked.

Quality of Flames

The combustion quality of burner flames needs to be determined visually.

(A) Yellow flames—

Call for service

(B) Yellow tips on outer cones—

Normal for LP gas

(C) Soft blue flames—Normal for natural gas

If burner flames look like (A), call for service. Normal burner flames should look like (B) or (C), depending on the type of gas you use.

With LP gas, some yellow tipping on outer cones is normal.

4 SEAL THE OPENINGS

Seal any openings in the wall behind the range and in the floor under the range when hookups are completed.

6 CHECK IGNITION OF OVEN BURNER

The oven is designed to operate quietly and automatically. To operate the oven, press the BAKE pad and then press the number pads until350° appears in the display. Touch theSTART/ON pad. After30–90seconds, the oven burner will ignite and burn until the set temperature is reached. The oven burner will continue to cycle on and off as necessary to

maintain the oven at the temperature indicated by the display.

To check ignition of the broil burner, touch the BROIL HI/LO pad and then theSTART/ON pad. After30–90seconds, the broil burner will ignite.

Electric ignition models require electrical power to operate. In case of a power outage, the oven burners on these models cannot be lit manually with a match. Gas will not flow unless the glow bar is hot.

If the oven is in use when a power outage occurs, the burner will shut off and cannot be re-lituntil power is restored.

Installation Instructions

7ADJUST BROIL AND OVEN BURNER AIR ADJUSTMENT SHUTTERS IF NECESSARY

Air adjustment shutters for the top and bottom burners regulate the flow of air to the flames.

Air adjustment shutter

Loosen

The air adjustment shutter for the top (broil) burner is in the center of the rear wall of the oven.

Loosen

Air adjustment shutter

The shutter for the bottom (oven) burner is near the back wall behind the storage drawer or kick panel. Remove the drawer or panel. See the Care and cleaning of the range section.

To adjust the flow of air to either burner, loosen the Phillips head screw and rotate the shutter toward open or closed position as needed.

The flames for the top (broil) burner should be steady with approximately 1blue cones and should not extend out over the edges of the burner baffle.

To determine if the bottom burner flames are burning properly, remove the oven bottom. Flames should have approximately 1blue cones and, if range is supplied with natural gas, should burn with no yellow tipping. (With most LP gas, small yellow tips at the end of outer cones are normal.) Flames should not lift off burner ports. If lifting is observed, gradually reduce air shutter opening until flames are stabilized.
