DO NOT MAKE ANY ATTEMPT TO
OPERATE THE ELECTRIC IGNITION OVEN DURING AN
ELECTRICAL POWER FAILURE. RESET ALL OVEN
CONTROLS TO "OFF" IN THE EVENT OF A POWER
FAILURE.
Be sure your range is installed and grounded
properly by a qualified installer or service
technician.
This range must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes or, in their absence,
with the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA
No .70—latest edition when installed in the United
States. See Grounding Instructions on page 8.
The electric ignitor will automatically re-ignite the oven
burner when power resumes if the oven thermostat control
was left in the "ON" position.
When an electrical power failure occurs during use, the
surface burners will continue to operate.
Before installing the range in an area covered with
linoleum or any other synthetic floor covering,
make sure the floor covering can withstand heat at
least 90°F above room temperature without
shrinking, warping or discoloring. Do not install the
range over carpeting unless you place an insulating
pad or sheet of 1/4-inch thick plywood between the
range and carpeting.
Make sure the wall coverings around the range
can withstand the heat generated by the range.
Do not obstruct the flow of combustion air at the
oven vent nor around the base or beneath the
lower front panel of the range. Avoid touching the
vent openings or nearby surfaces as they may
become hot while the oven is in operation. This range
requires fresh air for proper burner combustion.
Air curtain or other overhead range hoods, which
operate by blowing a downward air flow on to a range,
shall not be used in conjunction with gas ranges other
than when the hood and range have been designed,
tested and listed by an independent test laboratory for
use in combination with each other.
During a power outage, the surface burners can be lit with
a match. Hold a lighted match to the burner, then slowly
turn the knob to the LITE position. Use extreme caution
when lighting burners this way.
Never leave children alone or
unattended in the area where an appliance is in use.
Teach children the proper, safe use of all appliances. Never
leave the oven door open when the range is unattended.
Stepping, leaning or sitting on the doors
or drawers of this range can result in serious injuries
and can also cause damage to the range.
• Do not store items of interest to children in the
cabinets above the range. Children could be
seriously burned climbing on the range to reach items.
• To eliminate the need to reach over the surface
burners, cabinet storage space above the burners
should be avoided.
• Adjust surface burner flame size so it does not
extend beyond the edge of the cooking utensil.
Excessive flame is hazardous.
• Do not use the oven as a storage space. This
creates a potentially hazardous situation.
• Never use your range for warming or heating the
room. Prolonged use of the range without adequate
ventilation can be dangerous.
• Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable
vapors and liquids near this or any other
appliance. Explosions or fires could result.
• Reset all controls to the "OFF" position after using
a programmable timing operation.

Install anti-tip bracket
IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNING!
To reduce the risk of tipping of the range, the range
must be secured to the floor by properly installed antitip 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.
Fig. 5
If range is ever moved to a different location, the antitip bracket must also be moved and installed with the
range.
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.
b. Drill pilot holes & fasten bracket - Drill 1/8" pilot hole
where screws are to be located (Fig. 6). 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 3/16" pilot hole 1-3/4"
deep. The screws provided
may be used in wood or
concrete material. Use 5/16"
nut-driver or flat head
screwdriver to secure the
Fig. 6
bracket in place.
c. Level & position range - Level range by adjusting the
(4) leveling legs with a wrench.
Note: A min. clearance of 1/8" is required between bottom
of range and leveling legs to allow room for bracket.
Slide range back into position (Fig. 7). Remove lower
panel or storage drawer to visually check that rear
leveling leg is inserted into and fully secured by the
bracket. For models with a warmer drawer or broiler
compartment, grasp the top rear edge of the range
and carefully attempt to tilt it forward.
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.
Anti-tip bracket installation instructions
a. Locate the bracket using the template - (Bracket
may be positioned on either the left or right side of the
range. Refer to Figs. 4, 5, & 7 to position 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 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 wall, remove molding or mount bracket to
floor.
For wall mount (Fig. 4), locate the bracket by placing
the back edge of the template against 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 wall
when installed, attach bracket to the floor (See Fig. 5).

Please note: Operation at elevations above 2000 ft.,
appliance rating shall be reduced at the rate of 4 percent
for each 1000 ft. above sea level.
Connect range to gas supply.
Note: To prevent leaks use pipe joint sealant on all male
(outside) pipe threads. Do not allow gas pressure
regulator to turn on pipe when tightening fittings.
a. Install an external manual gas shut-off valve to gas
supply line in an accessible location outside of range.
Be sure you know where and how to shut off the gas
supply to the range (See Fig. 8).
b. Install 1/2" flare union adapter to gas pressure
regulator using no more than 15ft./lbs. of torque
(Refer to Fig. 8).
This appliance 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.
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.
Example: 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.

c.
Tighten the gas supply fitting and/or appliance conduit
to flare union adaptor on the right side of the pressure
regulator (refer to Fig. 10) using NO MORE THAN
15ft./lbs. of torque. Be sure to stabilize the 1/2" flare
union adapter with an adjustable wrench before
tightening the gas supply fitting and/or appliance
conduit.
Checking manifold gas pressure
Do not use flame to check for gas leaks.
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.
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".
Fig. 10
d. Install flare union adapter to external manual shut-off
valve (See Fig. 8).
e. Attach flexible appliance conduit to flare union adaptor
on shut-off valve (See Fig. 8).

It is very important to be sure that all surface burner caps
and burner grates are properly installed and in the correct
locations before operating the appliance. Please note that
the burner heads are secured to the cooktop. The cooktop
is not removeable. Do not attempt to remove or lift the
cooktop.
Before servicing, disconnect electrical
supply at circuit breaker, fuse or power cord.
Electric requirements:
To prevent flare-ups and avoid creation of
harmful by-products, do not use the cooktop without all
burner caps properly installed to insure proper ignition and
gas flame size.
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:
Always keep the burner caps and burner heads in place
whenever the surface burners are in use. Do not allow
spills, food, cleaning agents or any other material to
enter the gas orifice holder openings.
Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of any
extension cord. However, if you still choose 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.
Check and be sure the size of each burner cap matches
the size of the burner head. Check and be sure that all
round style burner caps are correctly in place on round
burner heads.
Check and be sure that all oval style burner caps are
correctly in place on oval burner heads (if equipped).
Check and be sure that all dual or twin style burner caps
are correctly in place on dual or twin burner heads (if
equipped).
Please read carefully! For personal
safety, this product must be properly grounded.
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third
(ground) prong from the power cord (See Fig. 12).
On round style burners, the burner cap lip (See Fig. 13)
should fit snug into the center of burner head and be level.
Refer to Figs. 14 & 15 for correct and incorrect burner cap
placement.
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.
Preferred method
Once in place, you may check the fit by gently sliding the
burner cap from side to side (Fig. 16) to be sure it is
centered and firmly seated. When the burner cap lip makes
contact inside the center of the burner head you will be
able to hear the burner cap click. Please note that the
burner cap should NOT move off the center of the burner
head when sliding from side to side.
Do not, under any
circumstances, cut,
remove or bypass the
grounding prong.

for Dual or Twin burner only
Push in and turn control to LITE until burner ignites.
Push in and quickly turn knob to lowest position.
If burner goes out, reset control to OFF.
Remove the surface burner control knob.
The oven burner is equipped with an electric control
system as well as an electric oven burner igniter. If your
model is equipped with an upper oven burner, it will also
have an electric burner igniter. These control systems
require no adjustment. When the oven is set to operate,
current will flow to the igniter. It will "glow" similar to a light
bulb. When the igniter has reached a temperature sufficient
to ignite gas, the electrically controlled oven valve will open
and flame will appear at the oven burner. There is a time
lapse from 30 to 60 seconds after the thermostat is turned
ON before the flame appears at the oven burner. When the
oven reaches the set temperature, the glowing igniter will
cycle off. The burner flame will turn off in 20 to 30 seconds
after the igniter turns off. To maintain any set oven
temperature, this cycle will continue as long as the oven
control is set to operate.
For all burner styles (except Dual or Twin burner):
e. Insert a thin-bladed screwdriver into the hollow valve
stem and engage the slotted screw inside. Flame size
can be increased or decreased with the turn of the
screw. Turn counterclockwise to increase flame size.
Turn clockwise to decrease flame size. (See Figs. 17
& 19).
Adjust flame until you can quickly turn knob from LITE
to lowest position without extinguishing the flame.
Flame should be as small as possible without
extinguishing.
To check oven burner ignition:
a. Set oven to Bake at 300ºF. See User's Manual for
operating instructions.
b. Within 60 seconds the oven burner should ignite.
Check for proper flame, and allow the burner to cycle
once. Reset control to OFF.
c. If your model is equipped with a waist-high broiler, set
oven to Broil. See User's Manual for operating
instructions.
d. Within 60 seconds the broil burner should ignite.
Check for proper flame. Reset control to OFF.
For Dual or Twin burner style adjustment only:
e. The inner portion (Simmer) of the twin burner flame
size can be increased or decreased with the turn of
screw A. Use screw B to adjust the flame size of the
outer portion of the Twin Burner (See Fig. 18). Turn
the screw counterclockwise to increase flame size.
Turn clockwise to decrease flame size. Adjust flame
size until you can quickly turn the knob from LITE to
lowest position without extinguishing the flame.
