30" GAS RANGE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
(For Models with Sealed Top Burners)
A. Locate the Bracket Using the Template - (Bracket may
be located on either the left or right side of the range. Use
the information below to locate the bracket if template is
not available). Mark the floor or wall where left or right
side of the range will be located. If rear of range is against
the wall or no further than 1-1/4" from wall when installed,
you may use the wall or floor mount method. If molding
is installed and does not allow the bracket to fit flush
against the wall, remove molding or mount bracket to the
floor. For wall mount, locate the bracket by placing the
back edge of the template against the rear wall and the
side edge of template on the mark made referencing the
side of the range. Place bracket on top of template and
mark location of the screw holes in wall. If rear of range
is further than 1-1/4" from the wall when installed, attach
bracket to the floor. For floor mount, locate the bracket
by placing back edge of the template where the rear of
the range will be located. Mark the location of the screw
holes, shown in template.
Before Starting
Tools You Will Need
For leveling legs and Anti-Tip Bracket:
•
Adjustable wrench or channel lock pliers
•
•
5/16" Nutdriver or Flat Head Screw Driver
Electric Drill & 1/8" Diameter Drill Bit (5/32" Masonry Drill
Bit if installing in concrete)
For gas supply connection:
•
Pipe wrench
For burner flame adjustment:
• Phillips head
and
blade-type screwdrivers
For gas conversion (LP/Propane or Natural):
• Open end wrench - 1/2"
Additional Materials You Will Need
•
Gas line shut-off valve
•
Pipe joint sealant that resists action of LP/Propane gas
•
A new flexible metal appliance conduit (1/2" NPT x 3/4"
or 1/2" I.D.) must be design certified by CSA International.
Because solid pipe restricts moving the range we
recommend using a new flexible conduit (4 to 5 foot
length) for each new installation and additional
reinstallations.
•
Always use the (2) new flare union adapters (1/2" NPT x
3/4" or 1/2" I.D.) supplied with the new flexible appliance
conduit for connection of the range.
B. Drill Pilot Holes and Fasten Bracket - Drill a 1/8" pilot
hole where screws are to be located. If bracket is to be
mounted to the wall, drill pilot hole at an approximate 20°
downward angle. If bracket is to be mounted to masonry
or ceramic floors, drill a 5/32" pilot hole 1-3/4" deep. The
screws provided may be used in wood or concrete
material. Use a 5/16" nut-driver or flat head screwdriver
to secure the bracket in place.
Normal Installation Steps
1. Anti-Tip Bracket Installation Instructions
Important Safety Warning
To reduce the risk of tipping of the range, the range must be
secured to the floor by properly installed anti-tip bracket and
screws packed with the range. Failure to install the anti-tip
bracket will allow the range to tip over if excessive weight is
placed on an open door or if a child climbs upon it. Serious
injury might result from spilled hot liquids or from the range
itself.
If range is ever moved to a different location, the anti-tip
brackets must also be moved and installed with the range.
Instructions are provided for installation in wood or cement
fastened to either the floor or wall. When installed to the wall,
make sure that screws completely penetrate dry wall and are
secured in wood or metal. When fastening to the floor or wall,
be sure that screws do not penetrate electrical wiring or
plumbing.

C. Level and Position Range - Level range by adjusting the
(4) leveling legs with a wrench. Note: A minimum clearance
of 1/8" is required between the bottom of the range and the
leveling leg to allow room for the bracket. Use a spirit level
to check your adjustments. Slide range back into position.
Visually check that rear leveling leg is inserted into and
fully secured by the Anti-Tip Bracket by removing lower
panel or storage drawer. For models with a warmer drawer
or broiler compartment, grasp the top rear edge of the
range and carefully attempt to tilt it forward.
3. Seal the openings.
Seal any openings in the wall behind the range and in the floor
under the range after gas supply line is installed.
4. Connect the range to the gas supply.
2. Provide an adequate gas supply.
To prevent leaks, put a pipe joint sealant on all male (outside)
pipe threads.
This unit is pre-set to operate on 4" natural gas manifold
pressure. A convertible pressure regulator is connected to
the manifold and MUST be connected in series with the gas
supply line. If the LP/Propane conversion kit has been used,
follow instructions provided with the kit for converting the
pressure regulator to LP/Propane use. The LP kit can be found
on the back side of the range.
Your regulator is in the location shown below.
Do not allow regulator to turn on pipe when
tightening fittings.
Care must be taken during installation of range not to obstruct
the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
For proper operation, the maximum inlet pressure to the
regulator should be no more than 14 inches of water column
pressure. The inlet pressure to the regulator must be at least
1 inch greater than regulator manifold pressure. Examples: If
regulator is set for natural gas 4 inch manifold pressure, inlet
pressure must be at least 5 inches; if regulator has been
converted for LP/Propane gas 10 inch manifold pressure,
inlet pressure must be at least 11 inches.
Leak testing of the appliance shall be conducted according to
the instructions in step 4g.
The gas supply line should be 1/2" or 3/4" I.D.

5. Read electrical connection details below
and connect electricity to range.
Before servicing, disconnect electrical
supply at circuit breaker, fuse or power cord.
Electric Requirements: A dedicated, properly grounded and
polarized branch circuit protected by a 15 amp. circuit
breaker or time delay fuse. See serial plate for proper
voltage.
Extension Cord Precautions:
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions,
we strongly recommend against the use of any extension
cord. However, if you still elect to use an extension cord, it is
absolutely necessary that it be a UL listed 3-wire grounding
type appliance extension cord and that the current carrying
rating of the cord in amperes be equivalent to or greater than
the branch circuit rating. Such extension cords are obtainable
through your local service organization.
a) Install an external manual gas shut-off valve to gas supply
line in an easily-accessible location outside of the range.
Be sure you know how and where to shut-off the gas
supply to the range.
b) Install 1/2" flare union adapter to pressure regulator.
c) Attach appliance conduit to flare union on regulator.
d) Install flare union adapter to external manual shut-off
valve.
e) Attach appliance conduit to flare union on shut-off valve.
f) Make sure service shut-off valve on pressure regulator
is in the "ON" position.
g) Check for leaks. Turn the gas supply on to the range and
use a liquid leak detector at all joints and conduits to
check for leaks in the system.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY! For personal
safety, this product must be properly grounded.
Grounding Instructions
The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a
3-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a standard
3-prong grounding 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 and polarized.
Do not use a flame to check for gas leaks.
Checking Manifold Gas Pressure
Disconnect the range and its individual shut-off valve from
the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of
that system at test pressures greater than 14" of water
column pressure (approximately 1/2" psig).
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping
system by closing its individual manual shut-off valve during
any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test
pressures equal to or less than 14" of water column pressure
(approximately 1/2" psig).
If it should be necessary to check the manifold gas pressure,
connect manometer (water gauge) or other pressure device
to the top burner right rear orifice. Using a rubber hose with
inside diameter of approximately 1/4," hold tubing down tight
over orifice. Turn burner valve on.
Where a standard two-prong wall receptacle is encountered,
it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer
to have it replaced with a properly grounded three-prong wall
receptacle.
For an accurate pressure check have at least two (2) other
top burners burning. Be sure the gas supply (inlet) pressure
is at least one inch above specified range manifold pressure.
The gas supply pressure should never be over 14" water
column. When properly adjusted for Natural Gas the manifold
pressure is 4." (For LP/Propane Gas the manifold pressure
is 10.")
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT OR
REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND) PRONG FROM THE
POWER CORD.
