RANGE SAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety
messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.”
These words mean:
DANGER
WARNING
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow
instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.
WARNING
Tip Over Hazard
A child or adult can tip the range and be killed.
Connect anti-tip bracket to rear range foot.
Reconnect the anti-tip bracket, if the range is moved.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or serious burns to children and adults.
IMPORTANT:
Save for local electrical inspector's use.

Mobile Home - Additional Installation Requirements
The installation of this range must conform to 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). When such standard is not
applicable, use the Standard for Manufactured Home
Installations, ANSI A225.1/NFPA 501A or local codes.
Mobile home installations require:
■ When this range is installed in a mobile home, it must be
secured to the floor during transit. Any method of securing
the range is adequate as long as it conforms to the standards
listed above.
■
Four-wire power supply cord or cable must be used in a
mobile home installation. The appliance wiring will need to be

Electrical Requirements - U.S.A. Only
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrical installer determine that
the ground path and wire gauge are in accordance with local
codes.
Do not use an extension cord.
Be sure that the electrical connection and wire size are adequate
and in conformance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/
NFPA 70-latest edition and all local codes and ordinances.
A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:
National Fire Protection Association
One Batterymarch Park
Quincy, MA 02269.
WARNING: Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a
qualified electrician or service technician if you are in doubt as to
whether the appliance is properly grounded. Do not modify the
power supply cord plug. If it will not fit the outlet, have a proper
outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Electrical Connection
If connecting to a 4-wire system:
To properly install your range, you must determine the type of
electrical connection you will be using and follow the instructions
provided for it here.
■ Range must be connected to the proper electrical voltage
and frequency as specified on the model/serial number rating
plate. The model/serial number rating plate is located behind
the control panel or on the oven frame behind the storage
drawer panel. Refer to the figures in the “Product
Dimensions” section of the “Location Requirements” section.
This range is manufactured with the ground connected to the
neutral by a link. The ground must be revised so the green
ground wire of the 4-wire power supply cord is connected to the
cabinet. See “Electrical Connection.”
Grounding through the neutral conductor is prohibited for new
branch-circuit installations (1996 NEC); mobile homes; and
recreational vehicles, or an area where local codes prohibit
grounding through the neutral conductor.
When a 4-wire receptacle of NEMA Type 14-50R is used, a
matching UL listed, 4-wire, 250-volt, 40- or 50-amp, range power
supply cord (pigtail) must be used. This cord contains 4 copper
conductors with ring terminals or open-end spade terminals with
upturned ends, terminating in a NEMA Type 14-50P plug on the
supply end.
The fourth (grounding) conductor must be identified by a green or
green/yellow cover and the neutral conductor by a white cover.
Cord should be Type SRD or SRDT with a UL listed strain relief
and be at least 4 ft (1.22 m) long.
■
This range is manufactured with the neutral terminal
connected to the cabinet. Use a 3-wire, UL listed, 40- or
50-amp power supply cord (pigtail) (see Range Rating chart
below). If local codes do not permit ground through the
neutral, use a 4-wire power supply cord rated at 250 volts,
40 or 50 amps and investigated for use with ranges.

*The NEC calculated load is less than the total connected load
listed on the model/serial rating plate.
**If connecting to a 50-amp circuit, use a 50-amp rated cord with
kit. For 50-amp rated cord kits, use kits that specify use with a
nominal 1³⁄₈" (34.9 mm) diameter connection opening.
■ A circuit breaker is recommended.
■
The range can be connected directly to the circuit breaker
box (or fused disconnect) through flexible or nonmetallic
sheathed, copper or aluminum cable. See “Electrical
Connection.”
■
Allow 2 to 3 ft (61.0 cm to 91.4 cm) of slack in the line so that
the range can be moved if servicing is ever necessary.
■
A UL listed conduit connector must be provided at each end
of the power supply cable (at the range and at the junction
box).
■
Wire sizes and connections must conform with the rating of
the range.
■
The wiring diagram is located on the back of the range or
inside the storage drawer in a clear plastic bag.
4-wire receptacle (14-50R)
The minimum conductor sized for the copper 4-wire power
cord are:
40-amp circuit
2 No.-8 conductors
1 No.-10 white neutral
1 No.-8 green grounding
If connecting to a 3-wire system:
Local codes may permit the use of a UL listed, 3-wire, 250-volt,
40- or 50-amp range power supply cord (pigtail). This cord
contains 3 copper conductors with ring terminals or open-end
spade terminals with upturned ends, terminating in a NEMA Type
10-50P plug on the supply end. Connectors on the appliance end
must be provided at the point the power supply cord enters the
appliance. This uses a 3-wire receptacle of NEMA Type 10-50R.
