WARNING!
IMPORTaNT SaFeTY NOTICe
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic enforcement act requires the governor of California to
publish a list of substances known to the state to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm, and
requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.
Operating Instructions
gas appliances can cause minor exposure to four of these substances, namely benzene, carbon
monoxide, formaldehyde and soot, caused primarily by the incomplete combustion of natural gas or
LP fuels. Properly adjusted burners, indicated by a bluish rather than a yellow flame, will minimize
incomplete combustion. exposure to these substances can be minimized by venting with an open
window or using a ventilation fan or hood.
SaFeTY PReCaUTIONS
Have the installer show you the location of the range gas shut-off valve and how to shut it off if necessary.

WARNING!
SURFaCe BURNeRS
Troubleshooting Tips
Consumer Support
n Do not use a wok on the cooking surface if the
wok has a round metal ring that is placed over
the burner grate to support the wok. This ring
acts as a heat trap, which may damage the
burner grate and burner head. Also, it may
cause the burner to work improperly. This may
cause a carbon monoxide level above that
allowed by current standards, resulting in a
health hazard.
n Foods for frying should be as dry as possible.
Frost on frozen foods or moisture on fresh
foods can cause hot fat to bubble up and over
the sides of the pan.
n Never try to move a pan of hot fat, especially a
deep fat fryer. Wait until the fat is cool.
n Do not leave plastic items on the cooktop—
they may melt if left too close to the vent.
n Keep all plastics away from the surface
burners.
n To avoid the possibility of a burn, always be
certain that the controls for all burners are at
the OFF position and all grates are cool before
attempting to remove them.
n If range is located near a window, do not
hang long curtains that could blow over the
surface burners and create a fire hazard.
n If you smell gas, turn off the gas to the range
and call a qualified service technician. Never
use an open flame to locate a leak.
n Always turn the surface burner controls off
before removing cookware.
n Do not lift the cooktop. Lifting the cooktop can
lead to damage and improper operation of the
range.
n When disabling Gas/Control Lockout, make
sure the surface controls are set to the OFF
position. This will preclude gas flow when the
range is turned on.
n Do not use aluminum foil to cover the grates
or line any part of the cooktop. Doing so may
result in carbon monoxide poisoning,
overheating of the cooktop surfaces, or a
5
potential fire hazard.
Installation
Instructions
n Always use the LITE position when igniting the
top burners and make sure the burners have
ignited.
n Never leave the surface burners unattended at
high flame settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
n Adjust the top burner flame size so it does not
extend beyond the edge of the cookware.
Excessive flame is hazardous.
n Use only dry pot holders— moist or damp pot
holders on hot surfaces may result in burns
from steam. Do not let pot holders come near
open flames when lifting cookware. Do not use
a towel or other bulky cloth in place of a pot
holder.
n When using glass cookware, make sure it is
designed for top-of-range cooking.
n To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition of
flammable materials and spillage, turn
cookware handles toward the side or back of
the range without extending over adjacent
burners.
n Carefully watch foods being fried at a high
flame setting.
n Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
n Do not leave any items on the cooktop. The
hot air from the vent may ignite flammable
items and will increase pressure in closed
containers, which may cause them to burst.
n If a combination of oils or fats will be used in
frying, stir together before heating or as fats
melt slowly.
n Use a deep fat thermometer whenever
possible to prevent overheating fat beyond the
smoking point.
n Use the least possible amount of fat for
effective shallow or deep-fat frying. Filling the
pan too full of fat can cause spillovers when
food is added.
n Do not flame foods on the cooktop. If you do
flame foods under the hood, turn the fan on.
Operating Instructions
Use proper pan size—avoid pans that are unstable or easily tipped. Select cookware having flat
bottoms large enough to cover burner grates. To avoid spillovers, make sure cookware is large enough
to contain the food properly. This will both save cleaning time and prevent hazardous accumulations
of food, since heavy spattering or spillovers left on range can ignite. Use pans with handles that can
be easily grasped and remain cool.

Misuse could result in a fire hazard or damage
to the range.
n When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
Installation
Instructions
NEVER cover any
slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom
or cover an entire rack with materials such
as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow
through the oven and may cause carbon
monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings
may also trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
n Do not use your oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch fire.
n Use only glass cookware that is recommended
for use in gas ovens.
n Always remove any broiler pan from range
as soon as you finish broiling. Grease left in
the pan can catch fire if oven is used without
removing the grease from the broiler pan.
n When broiling, if meat is too close to the flame,
the fat may ignite. Trim excess fat to prevent
excessive flare-ups.
n Make sure any broiler pan is in place correctly
to reduce the possibility of grease fires.
n If you should have a grease fire in a broiler
pan, press the Clear/Off pad, and keep
the oven door closed to contain fire until
it burns out.
n For safety and proper cooking performance,
always bake and broil with the oven door
closed.
n Never place, use or self-clean the lower oven
drawer pan in the upper oven.
Operating Instructions
n Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in the oven can ignite.
n Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
n Place the oven racks in the desired position
while the oven is cool.
n Pulling out the rack to the stop-lock is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also
a precaution against burns from touching hot
surfaces of the door or oven walls. The lowest
position is not designed to slide.
n Do not heat unopened food containers.
Pressure could build up and the container
could burst, causing an injury.

Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
Using the gas surface burners.
The smallest burner in the right rear position is
the simmer burner. This burner can be turned
down to LO for a very low simmer setting. It
provides precise cooking performance for
delicate foods such as sauces or foods that
require low heat for a long cooking time.
The medium (left rear) and the large
(left front) burners are the primary burners for
most cooking. These general-purpose burners
can be turned down from HI to LO to suit a
wide range of cooking needs.
The extra large burner (right front) is the
maximum output burner. Like the other four
burners, it can be turned down from HI to LO
for a wide range of cooking applications;
however, this burner is designed to quickly
bring large amounts of liquid to a boil. It has
a special POWER BOIL™ setting designed to
be used with cookware 12 inches or larger
in diameter.
Extra-large burner only
The center oval burner (on some models) is
for large pots/pans or for use with the griddle.
How to Select Flame Size
For safe handling of cookware, never let the
flames extend up the sides of the cookware.
8
Watch the flame, not the knob, as you reduce
heat. When fast heating is desired, the flame
size on a gas burner should match the
cookware you are using.
Flames larger than the bottom of the
cookware will not result in faster heating
of the cookware and could be hazardous.
Top-of-Range Cookware
Aluminum: Medium-weight cookware is
recommended because it heats quickly
and evenly. Most foods brown evenly in an
aluminum skillet. Use saucepans with tightfitting lids when cooking with minimum
amounts of water.
Enamelware: Under some conditions,
the enamel of some cookware may melt.
Follow cookware manufacturer’s
recommendations for cooking methods.
Heatproof Glass-Ceramic: Can be used for
either surface or oven cooking. It conducts
heat very slowly and cools very slowly. Check
cookware manufacturer’s directions to be
sure it can be used on gas ranges.
Stainless Steel: This metal alone has poor
heating properties and is usually combined
with copper, aluminum or other metals for
improved heat distribution. Combination
metal skillets usually work satisfactorily if they
are used with medium heat as the
manufacturer recommends.
Operating Instructions
Cast-Iron: If heated slowly, most skillets
will give satisfactory results.
Glass: There are two types of glass
cookware—those for oven use only and
those for top-of-range cooking (saucepans,
coffee and teapots). Glass conducts heat
very slowly.

To avoid possible burns, place the racks in the desired position before you turn the oven on.
Before you begin…
The racks have stop-locks, so that when
placed correctly on the rack supports
(A through E), they will stop before coming
completely out, and will not tilt.
To replace, place the end of the rack
(stop-locks) on the support, tilt up the front
and push the rack in.
NOTE: The rack is not designed to slide out
at the special low rack (R) position.
The oven has 5 rack positions.
It also has a special low rack position
(R) for extra large items, such as a large
turkey.
Upper Oven Vent
n Handles of pots and pans on the cooktop
may become hot if left too close to the vent.
n Do not leave plastic or flammable items on
the cooktop—they may melt or ignite if left
too close to the vent.
n Do not leave closed containers on the
cooktop. The pressure in closed containers
may increase, which may cause them
to burst.
n Metal items will become very hot if they are
left on the cooktop, and could cause burns.

Instructions
Plastic items on the cooktop may melt
if left too close to the vent.
Vent appearance and location vary.
Your oven is vented through ducts at the rear
of the range. Do not block these ducts when
cooking in the oven—it is important that the
flow of hot air from the oven and fresh air
to the oven burner be uninterrupted. Avoid
touching the vent openings or nearby
surfaces during oven or broiler operation—
they may become hot.

How to Set the Upper Oven for Baking or Roasting
Your oven is not designed for open-door
cooking.
Touch the BAKE pad.
Touch the number pads to set the
desired temperature.
Touch the START pad.
The oven has a special low rack (R)
position just above the oven bottom.
Use it when extra cooking space is
needed, for example, when cooking
a large turkey. The rack is not designed
to slide out at this position.
To change the oven temperature during BaKe
cycle, press the BAKE pad and then the
number pads to get the new temperature.
Check food for doneness at minimum
time on recipe. Cook longer if necessary.
Touch the CLEAR/OFF pad when
cooking is complete.
The word ON and 100° will be displayed. As
the oven heats up, the display will show the
changing temperature. When the oven reaches
the temperature you set, a tone will sound.
Preheating and Pan Placement
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it.
To preheat, set the oven at the correct
temperature. Preheating is necessary
when convection baking and for good
results when baking cakes, cookies,
pastry and breads.
When baking on a single rack, use
the rack position from the chart for your
type of food. Baking results will be
better if baking pans are centered in
the oven as much as possible.
Baking results will be better if foods are
centered in the oven as much as possible.
Pans should not touch each other or the
walls of the oven.
For best results when baking four cake layers
at a time, use racks B and D. Place the lower
pans at the back of the rack and the upper
pans at the front of the rack as shown so that
one pan is not directly above another leaving
approximately 1-1/2" between pans, from
the front, back and sides of the walls.

Aluminum Foil
Do not use aluminum foil to line oven bottoms.
The foil will trap heat below and upset the
performance of the oven. Foil can melt and
permanently damage the oven bottom.
Damage from improper use of aluminum foil is
not covered by the product warranty.
Oven Moisture
14
As your oven heats up, the temperature
change of the air in the oven may cause
water droplets to form on the door glass.
These droplets are harmless and will
evaporate as the oven continues to heat up.
Foil may be used to catch spills by placing a
sheet on a lower rack, several inches below
the food .Do not use more foil than necessary
and never entirely cover an oven rack with
aluminum foil . Keep foil at least 1-1/2” from
oven walls to prevent poor heat circulation.
If your model has a door latch, do not lock the oven door with the latch during broiling.
The latch is used for self-cleaning only.
How to Set the Upper Oven for Broiling
Place the meat or fish on a broiler grid in
a broiler pan.
The oven door must be closed during
broiling.
Close the door. Always broil with
the door closed.
Touch the Broil Hi/Lo pad once for
Hi Broil.
To change to Lo Broil, touch the Broil
Hi/Lo pad again.
When broiling is finished, touch the
Clear/Off pad.
Serve the food immediately, and leave the
pan outside the oven to cool during the meal
for easiest cleaning.
Use Lo Broil to cook foods such as poultry
or thick cuts of meat thoroughly without
overbrowning them.

Convection Bake
In a convection oven, a fan circulates
hot air over, under and around the food.
This circulating hot air is evenly
distributed throughout the oven cavity.
As a result, foods are evenly cooked and

You may find that your new oven cooks differently than the one it replaced. Use your new oven for a few weeks to become
more familiar with it. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the thermostat yourself.
Do not use thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores, to check the temperature setting of your oven.
These thermometers may vary 20–40 degrees.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling or the self-cleaning temperatures. The adjustment will be retained

The type of margarine will affect baking performance!
Most recipes for baking have been developed using high-fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you
decrease the fat, the recipe may not give the same results as with a higher-fat product.
Troubleshooting Tips
Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries, cookies or candies are made with low-fat spreads. The lower the fat
content of a spread product, the more noticeable these differences become.
Federal standards require products labeled “margarine” to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low-fat spreads, on the
other hand, contain less fat and more water. The high moisture content of these spreads affects the texture and flavor
of baked goods. For best results with your old favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or stick spreads containing at least
70% vegetable oil.

Lodge® Reversible Cast-Iron Griddle
n Rinse with hot water (do not use soap),
and dry thoroughly.
Griddle Precautions:
n If something has spilled under the griddle,
it should be cleaned up as soon as possible
to prevent “baked on” food soil.
n after cooking, clean the griddle with a stiff
brush and hot water. Using soap is not
recommended, and harsh detergents
should never be used.
n Do not allow grease to accumulate under
the griddle as it can be a fire hazard. Clean
under the griddle as soon as it is cool. Clean
with hot soapy water.
n Towel dry immediately and apply a light
coat of cooking spray or vegetable oil
while the griddle is still warm.
n Do not place your griddle in the microwave.
n Store in a cool, dry place.
n always turn off all surface burners before
removing the griddle. Use caution when
handling a hot griddle.
n Do not wash in the dishwasher.
Burner Grates
The grates may be cleaned in a
dishwasher.
Left Front
Center
Right Front
Lift out when cool. Grates should be washed
regularly and, of course, after spillovers. Wash
them in hot, soapy water and rinse with clean
water. When replacing the grates, be sure
they are positioned securely over
the burners. Replace the grates so that
continuous arcs are formed with the center
ribs of all three grates.
To get rid of burned-on food, place the grates
in a covered container. Add 1/4 cup ammonia
and let them soak several hours or overnight.
Wash, rinse well and dry.
Although they are durable, the grates will
gradually lose their shine, regardless of the
best care you can give them. This is due
to their continual exposure to high
temperatures. You will notice this
sooner with lighter color grates.
Troubleshooting Tips
Cleaning
Do not operate a burner for an extended
period of time without cookware on the grate.
The finish on the grate may chip without
cookware to absorb the heat.
NOTE: Do not clean the grates in a selfcleaning oven.
Cooktop Surface
When the surface has cooled, wash and
rinse. For other spills such as fat spatterings,
wash with soap and water once the surface
has cooled. Then rinse and polish with a dry
cloth.
NOTE: Do not store flammable materials
in an oven, drawer or near the cooktop.
Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
NOTE: Do not lift the cooktop. Lifting the
cooktop can lead to damage and improper
operation of the range.
NOTE: For stainless steel cooktops, refer
to the Stainless steel surfaces section.
35
Consumer Support
To avoid damaging the porcelain-enamel
surface of the cooktop and to prevent it
from becoming dull, clean up spills right
away. Foods with a lot of acid (tomatoes,
sauerkraut, fruit juices, etc.) or foods with
high sugar content could cause a dull spot
if allowed to set.
Installation
Instructions
Appearance may vary.
Your range has three professional-style
double grates. These grates are positionspecific. For maximum stability, these grates
should only be used in their proper position;
they cannot be interchanged left to right
or front to back. For convenience, the
undersides of the left and right grates are
marked “LEFT FRONT” and “RIGHT FRONT.”
Make sure the front portion of both grates is
in front. The middle grate has a bow in front.
Make sure the bowed portion is toward the
front of the range. In addition, the middle
grate is supported by the left and right grates
and must be installed LAST for stability.

Troubleshooting Tips
Red line
Do not use abrasive cleansers, strong liquid
cleaners, plastic scouring pads or oven
cleaners on the control panel—they will
damage the finish.
Do not try to bend knobs by pulling them up
or down or by hanging a towel or other such
loads. This can damage the gas valve shaft.
Lower oven drawer knob
The control knobs may be removed for
easier cleaning.
Make sure the knobs are in the OFF positions
and pull them straight off the stems for
cleaning.
The knobs can be cleaned in a dishwasher
or they may also be washed with soap and
water. Make sure the insides of the knobs are
dry before replacing.
Replace the knobs in the OFF position
to ensure proper placement.
Metal parts can be cleaned with soap
and water. Do not use steel wool, abrasives,
ammonia, acids or commercial oven
cleaners. Dry with a soft cloth.
NOTE: The lower oven drawer control knob is
not interchangeable with the surface burner
knobs. Be sure to reinstall the lower oven
drawer knob to the original location. The lower
oven drawer knob may be identified by the red
line. Surface burner knobs have a white line.
Oven Bottom
The oven bottom has a porcelain-enamel
finish. To make cleaning easier, protect the
oven bottom from excessive spillovers by
placing a cookie sheet on the rack below the
rack you are cooking on. This is particularly
important when baking a fruit pie or other
foods with a high acid content. Hot fruit
fillings or other foods that are highly acidic
(such as tomatoes, sauerkraut and sauces
36
with vinegar or lemon juice) may cause
pitting and damage to the porcelain-enamel
surface and should be wiped up immediately
after oven cools.
To clean up spillovers, use soap and water,
an abrasive cleaner or soap-filled scouring
pad. Rinse well to remove any soap before
self-cleaning.
Lift-Off Oven Door
n The area outside the gasket can be
cleaned with a soap-filled plastic
scouring pad.
To remove the door, open it a few inches
to the special stop position that will hold the
door open. Grasp firmly on each side and lift
the door straight up and off the hinges.
To clean the outside of the door:
NOTE: Be careful not to place hands between
the hinge and the oven door frame since
the hinge could snap back and pinch fingers.
To replace the door, make sure the hinges
are in the special stop position. Position the
slots in the bottom of the door squarely over
the hinges. Then lower the door slowly and
evenly over both hinges at the same time. If
the hinges snap back against the oven frame,
pull them back out.
To clean the inside of the door:
n Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato
sauces and basting materials containing
acids may cause discoloration and should
be wiped up immediately. When the
surface is cool, clean and rinse.
n Do not use oven cleaners, cleansing
powders or harsh abrasives on the
outside of the door.
n Do not allow excess water to run into
any holes or slots in the door.
n Because the area inside the gasket is
cleaned during the self-clean cycle, you do
not need to clean this by hand. Any soap
left on the liner causes additional stains
when the oven is heated.
Installation
Instructions
The gasket is designed with a gap
at the bottom to allow for proper air
circulation.
Do not rub or clean the door gasket—
it has an extremely low resistance
to abrasion.
If you notice the gasket becoming worn,
frayed or damaged in any way or if it
has become displaced on the door,
you should have it replaced.
n Use soap and water to thoroughly clean
the top, sides and front of the oven door.
Rinse well. You may also use a glass
cleaner to clean the glass on the outside
of the door.
Stainless Steel Surfaces (on some models)
Do not use a steel wool pad; it will scratch
the surface.
n In order to avoid any discolorations and/or
grease stains, we recommend cleaning
and removing any spills, spots and grease
from the range after use.
n It is important to use a soft cloth or paper
towel every time the range is cleaned to
avoid any scratches.
Cleaning Instructions:
1. Remove grates.
2. Wash using warm, soapy water:
Wet soft cloth or paper towel (avoid using
excessive water).
Wipe the surface in the direction of the
grain (following the steel lines).

Do not locate the range where it may be subject to
strong drafts. any openings in the floor or wall behind
the range should be sealed. make sure the openings
around the base of the range that supply fresh air
for combustion and ventilation are not obstructed
by carpeting or woodwork.
Your range, like many other household items, is
heavy and can settle into soft floor coverings such as
cushioned vinyl or carpeting. Use care when moving
the range on this type of flooring. It is recommended
that the following simple and inexpensive instructions
be followed to protect your floor.
The range should be installed on a sheet of plywood
(or similar material). When the floor covering ends at the
front of the range, the area that the range will rest on
should be built up with plywood to the same level or
higher than the floor covering.
To reduce the risk of tipping the range, the range must be
secured by a properly installed anti-tip bracket. See
installation instructions shipped with the bracket for
complete details before attempting to install.
To check if the bracket is installed and engaged properly,
carefully tip the range forward. The bracket should stop the
range within 4 inches. If it does not, the bracket must be
reinstalled. If the range is pulled from the wall for any
reason, always repeat this procedure to verify the range
is properly secured by the anti-tip bracket.
For free-standing or slide-in ranges, never completely
remove the leveling legs or the range will not be secured
to the anti-tip device properly.
If you did not receive an anti-tip bracket with your
purchase, call 1.800.626.8774 to receive one at no cost
(in Canada, call 1.800.561.3344). For installation instructions
of the bracket, visit GEAppliances.com (in Canada,
GEAppliances.ca).
n For your safety, never use your range for warming
or heating the room. Your oven and cooktop are not
designed to heat your kitchen. Top burners should
not be operated without cookware on the grate. Such
abuse could result in fire and damage to your range
and will void your warranty.
This will allow the range to be moved for cleaning
or servicing. Also, make sure your floor covering will
withstand 180°F. (See the Installation Safety Instructions
section.)
Make sure the wall coverings around your range can
withstand the heat generated (up to 200°F) by the
range. (See the Installation Safety Instructions section.)
ImPoRTaNT!
Remove all tape and packaging. make sure the
burners are properly seated and level.
Take the accessory pack out of the oven and/or
drawer.
Check to be sure that no range parts have come loose
during shipping.
n Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline
or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance. Explosions or fires
could result.
n Do not use oven for a storage area. Items stored
in the oven can ignite.
n Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.

This range is designed for an operating manifold
pressure of 4” or 5” water column (w.C.) on natural gas
(see rating label on product) or 10” w.C. on lP gas.
Shut off the main gas supply valve before
disconnecting the old range and leave it off until
the new hookup has been completed. Don’t forget
to relight the pilot on other gas appliances when
you turn the gas back on.
This range comes from the factory set for use on natural
gas, but it is convertible for use on LP gas. If you decide
to use this range on LP gas, conversion must be made by
a qualified LP installer before attempting to operate the
range. Because hard piping restricts movement of the range,
the use of a CSA International-certified flexible metal
appliance connector is recommended unless local codes
require a hard-piped connection.
For proper operation, the inlet pressure to the regulator
should be at least 1” W.C. above the operating manifold
pressure but must not exceed 14” W.C.
Never use an old connector when installing a new range.
If the hard piping method is used, you must carefully align
the pipe; the range cannot be moved after the connection
is made.
The pressure regulator located at the inlet of the range
manifold must remain in the supply line regardless of
whether natural or LP gas is being used. When checking
for proper operation of the regulator, the inlet pressure
must be at least 1” greater than the operating manifold
pressure.
To prevent gas leaks, put pipe-joint compound on,
or wrap pipe-thread tape with Teflon* around, all male
(external) pipe threads.
a. Install a manual gas line shut-off valve in the gas line
in an easily accessed location outside of the range.
Make sure everyone operating the range knows where
and how to shut off the gas supply to the range.
A flexible metal appliance connector used to connect the
range to the gas supply line should have an I.D. of ½” and
be 5 feet in length for ease of installation. In Canada,
flexible connectors must be single wall metal connectors
no longer than 6 feet in length.
B. Install male 1/2″ flare union adapter to the 1/2″ NPT
internal thread at inlet of regulator. Use a backup
wrench on the regulator fitting to avoid damage.
When installing the range from the front, remove
the 90° elbow for easier installation.
C. Install male 1/2″ or 3/4″ flare union adapter to the
NPT internal thread of the manual shut-off valve,
taking care to back up the shut-off valve to keep it
from turning.
D. Connect flexible metal appliance connector to the
adapter on the range. Position range to permit
connection at the shut-off valve.
e. When all connections have been made, make sure
all range controls are in the off position and turn on the
main gas supply valve. Use a liquid leak detector at all
joints and connections to check for leaks in the system.
waRNING: Do NoT USe a Flame
To CHeCK FoR GaS leaKS.
When using test pressures greater than 1/2 psig to
pressure test the gas supply system of the residence,
disconnect the range and individual shut-off valve from
the gas supply piping. When using test pressures of 1/2
psig or less to test the gas supply system, simply isolate
the range from the gas supply system by closing the
individual shut-off valve.

protected by a 15-amp or 20-amp circuit breaker or
time-delay fuse.
a. Usage Situations where appliance Power Cord will
Be Disconnected Infrequently.
An adapter may be used only on a 15-amp circuit.
Do not use an adapter on a 20-amp circuit. Where
local codes permit, a TemPoRaRy CoNNeCTIoN
may be made to a properly grounded 2-prong wall
receptacle by the use of a UL-listed adapter, available
at most hardware stores. The larger slot in the adapter
must be aligned with the larger slot in the wall receptacle
to provide proper polarity in the
connection of the power cord.
extension Cord Cautions
Because of potential safety hazards associated
with certain conditions, we strongly recommend against
the use of an 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 circuit
rating.

Preferred Method
Ensure proper ground

CaUTIoN:
Attaching the adapter ground
terminal to the wall receptacle cover screw does not
ground the appliance unless the cover screw is metal,
and not insulated, and the wall receptacle is grounded
through the house wiring. The customer should have
the circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make
sure the receptacle is properly grounded.
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.
Where a standard 2-prong wall receptacle is
encountered, it is the personal responsibility and
obligation of the customer to have it replaced with
a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle.

a word about GFCIs – GFCIs are not required or
recommended for gas range receptacles.
When disconnecting the power cord from the adapter,
always hold the adapter with one hand. If this is not done,
the adapter ground terminal is very likely to break with
repeated use. Should this happen, Do NoT USe the
appliance until a proper ground has again been
established.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) are
devices that sense leakage of current in a circuit and
automatically switch off power when a threshold leakage
level is detected. These devices must be manually reset
by the consumer. The National Electrical Code requires
the use of GFCIs in kitchen receptacles installed to serve
countertop surfaces. Performance of the range will not
be affected if operated on a GFCI-protected circuit but
occasional nuisance tripping of the GFCI breaker is
possible.

B. Usage Situations where appliance Power Cord will
Be Disconnected Frequently.
Do not use an adapter plug in these situations because
disconnecting of the power cord places undue strain on
the adapter and leads to eventual failure of the adapter
ground terminal. The customer should have the 2-prong
wall receptacle replaced with a 3-prong (grounding)
receptacle by a qualified electrician before using
the appliance.
