NORMAL INSTALLATION STEPS
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 bracket
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.
2 Drill Pilot Holes and Fasten bracket
Drill a 1/8-inch pilot hole where screws are to be located. If bracket
is to be mounted to the wall, drill pilot hole at an approximate 20
degree downward angle. If bracket is to be mounted to masonry or
ceramic floors, drill a 5/32-inch pilot hole 1 3/4-inches deep. The
screws provided may be used in wood or concrete material. Use a
5/16 -inch nut-driver or flat head screwdriver to secure the bracket
in place.
