Location
READ BEFORE INSTALLING
LEVELING
When installing against combustible surfaces; rear - 4”
(102mm) and sides - 15” (381mm) clearance is required.
When installing ovens against non-combustible surfaces
(rear or side walls) 0” clearance is required.
A carpenter’s spirit level should be placed on the oven’s
center baking rack and the unit leveled both front-to-back
and side-to-side. If it is not level, cakes, casseroles, and
any other liquid or semi-liquid batter will not bake evenly,
burner combustion may be erratic, and the unit will not
function efficiently.
The area around the appliance must be kept free and
clear of combustibles such as solvents, cleaning liquid,
broom, rags, etc. Proper clearances must be provided at
the front of the appliance for servicing and proper operation.
If the floor is relatively smooth and level, the unit may be
further leveled with adjustment in the foot of the leg. Units
with casters must be leveled with shims. A unit will probably not return to the same position after being moved,
requiring re-leveling after each and every move.
AIR SUPPLY AND VENTILATION
RATING PLATE
Provisions shall be incorporated in the design of the kitchen, to ensure adequate supply of fresh air and adequate
clearance for air openings into the combustion chamber,
for proper combustion, and ventilation. For proper operation of the appliance, do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
The rating plate is located in front of the range below
the oven section. Information on this plate includes the
model, and serial number, BTU / hour input of the burners, operating gas pressure in inches WC, and whether
the appliance is orificed for Natural or Propane gas. Pilot
lighting instructions are also located in the same area.
CLEARANCE
The area in front of, around and above the appliance must
be kept clear to avoid any obstruction of the flow of combustion and ventilation air. Adequate clearance must be
maintained at all times in front and at the sides of the appliances for servicing and proper operation.
WARNING
UNIT MUST BE CONNECTED ONLY TO THE
TYPE OF GAS IDENTIFIED ON THE RATING
PLATE!
Means must be provided for any commercial, heavy-duty
cooking appliance to exhaust combustion waste products
to the outside of the building. Usual practice is to place
the unit under an exhaust hood. Filters and drip troughs
should be part of any industrial hood. Consult local codes
before constructing and installing a hood.
Strong exhaust fans in this hood or in the overall air conditioning system can produce a slight vacuum in the room
and/or cause air drafts, either of which can interfere with
pilot or burner performance and can also be hard to diagnose. Air movement should be checked during installation; if pilot or burner outage problems persist, make-up
air openings or baffles may have to be provided in the
room.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
shows gas flow direction; it should point downstream to
the appliance. The red air vent cap on the top regulator is
part of the regulator and should not be removed.
Oven requires a 120 volt supply to operate the ignition
system and blower. The supply cord provided along with
the appliance is equipped with a three prong (grounding)
plug for protection against shock hazard. The electrical
service in the building must be equipped with a properly
grounded three prong receptacle, in accordance with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with the national electrical code, ANSI/NFPA 70-1987, in Canada,
conform with Canadian electrical codes, CSA-C22.1.
Any adjustments to regulators must be made only by
qualified service personnel with the proper equipment.
Connections
Please check installer-supplied intake pipes visually and
/or blow them out with compressed air to clear any dirt
particles, threading chips, or other foreign matter before
installing a service line. When gas pressure is applied
these particles can clog orifices. All connections must be
sealed with a joint compound suitable for LP gas, and all
connections must be tested with a soapy water solution
before lighting any pilots!
Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug.
Wiring diagram is located on the backside of the appliance.
Disconnect power supply before cleaning or servicing.
Flexible Coupling, Connectors and Casters
WARNING
For an appliance equipped with casters the installation
shall be made with a connector that complies with the
Standard for Connectors for Movable Gas Appliances,
ANSI Z21.69 or Connectors for Moveable Gas Appliances, CAN/CGA-6.16, and a quick –disconnect device that
complies with the standard for Quick Disconnect Devices
for Use with Gas Fuel, ANSI Z21.41, or Quick Disconnect Devices for Use with Gas Fuel, CANI-6.9. Adequate
means must be provided to limit the movement of the
appliance without depending on the connector and the
quick-disconnect device or its associated piping to limit
the appliance movement. Restraining devices may be attached to the back frame/panel of the unit.
This appliance is not capable of being operated in the event of power failure. No attempt
should be made to operate this appliance during power failure.
GAS CONNECTION
The gas supply (service) line must be the same size or
greater than the inlet line of appliance. Oven uses a 3/4”
NPT inlet. Sealant on all pipe joints must be resistive to
LP gas.
Manual Shut-Off Valve
This installer-supplied valve must be installed in the gas
service line ahead of the appliance and regulator in the
gas stream and in a position accessible in the event of an
emergency.
If legs or casters are not used, the unit must extend 2” beyond the front edge of a noncombustible curb or platform.
Broilers are for installation in non-combustible locations
only.
Pressure Regulator
Gas pressure regulator provided with the equipment must
be installed when the appliance is connected to gas supply.
WARNING
Before lighting, check all joints in the gas supply line for leaks.
All commercial cooking equipment must have a pressure regulator on the incoming service line for safe and
efficient operation, since service pressure may fluctuate
with local demand. The pressure regulator comes with the
oven. Failure to install the pressure regulator will void the
equipment warranty!
DO NOT USE AN OPEN FLAME TO CHECK
FOR LEAKS!
Putting an open flame beside a new gas connection is extremely dangerous.
The regulators supplied with MARKET FORGE INDUSTRIES, INC. Ovens, have 3/4” inlet /outlet openings and
are adjusted at the factory for 5” WC (Natural gas) or 10”
WC (Propane gas) depending on customer’s ordering instructions.
Prior to connecting the regulator, check the incoming line
pressure, as these regulators can only withstand a maximum pressure of ½ PSI (14”WC). If the line pressure is
beyond this limit, a step-down regulator will be required.

WARNING
Pilot gas is tapped from the main burner manifold pipe,
routed through tubing to a pilot safety valve, and then to
the pilot burner. Gas flow is controlled by the safety valve.
Before lighting any pilots, make sure that
burner valves and thermostats are turned
“off”.
Oven pilot lighting or relighting is to be completed in the
following sequence:
BEFORE FIRST USE
1. Turn the oven thermostat knob to “off” and wait 5 minutes.
Griddles
1. Clean the griddle surface thoroughly with hot, soapy
water remove to protective oil coating applied at the
factory.
2. Remove the oven’s lower kick plate by lifting up and
out. This exposes the pilot safety valve and the igniter
button.
2. Rinse with a mixture of ~ cup vinegar to one quart
water.
3. Make sure any accumulated gas has dispersed.
Since propane gas is heavier than air, check near the
floor area for the odor of propane gas before attempting to light any pilot burners.
3. Spread unsalted solid shortening or liquid frying compound evenly over the entire griddle surface.
4. Turn all griddle burners to medium and wait until the
shortening begins to smoke, then turn the burners
‘off‘.
4. Depress the red button on the safety valve and hold it
in throughout the lighting procedure.
5. Press the red button of the pilot igniter, and you should
hear a snap and see a spark at the pilot burner. If a
spark or spark igniter is not present apply a lit match
to the pilot burner head.
5. Rub the now melted shortening into the griddle surface with burlap, moving in the direction of the surface’s polish marks and covering the entire surface.
6. Allow the griddle to cool.
6. Continue to depress the safety valve button until the
pilot remains lit when released.
7. When the griddle is cool after the second seasoning,
wipe it with a thin film of shortening or cooking oil.
7. If pilot is extinguished, repeat step 4 through 6 above.
Ovens
8. Turn the oven thermostat knob “on” and set to desired
temperature setting, watch to make sure the oven
burner ignites from the pilot and that there are no yellow flames from the burner.
On initial installation turn the oven to 250o and operate
for hour, then reset the thermostat to its maximum and
operate for another hour. This will drive off any solvents
remaining in the unit. At the end of this second hour, turn
the thermostat off, open the door and allow the unit to
cool. Oven should be thoroughly washed using hot soapy
water before being used.
9. Turn the oven thermostat to “off” and replace the lower kick plate.
NOTE: It may be necessary to relight the pilot several
times until the lines are purged of any trapped air
and a constant gas flow is attained.
Top Burners / Raised Griddle-Broiler / Broiler
All top section burners are equipped with constant-burning pilots. These are to be manually lighted immediately
after the gas is turned on and the system is checked for
leaks. Burner pilots are provided for each burner and can
be rechecked for proper adjustment. Adjustments can be
made with a screwdriver to the brass pilot valve accessible through the valve cover.
Hot Top / Griddle
The pilot should be lighted immediately after the gas is
turned on and the system is checked for leaks. The pilot
can be reached with a long match through the valve cover, or by lifting the plate upward and accessing through
the top.

than room temperature and always have direct
ventilation.
CAUTION
DAILY CLEANING
DO NOT USE steel wool, abrasive cloths,
cleaners or powders to clean stainless surfaces! If it is necessary to scrape stainless steel
to remove encrusted materials, soak in hot
water to loosen the material; then use a wood
or nylon scraper.
Clean top grate(s) with warm water, mild cleaner and wire
brush. Clean and brush off debris from and around the
burner area. Empty and clean grease pan. Griddle plates
should be cleaned with warm water and scrubbed with
cleaning abrasive such as a griddle brick of fine grit type.
Top surface can also be ‘bleached’ with vinegar, pickle
juice or club soda when the plate is warm.
CAUTION
DO NOT USE a metal knife, spatula, or any
other metal tool to scrape stainless steel.
Scratches are almost impossible to remove.
