WARNING
• The information in this manual should be followed exactly.
- A fire or electrical shock may result causing property damage, personal injury or death.
• Any person should not step or sit on the oven door. You should install the Anti-Tip
Bracket supplied with the range.
- The range could be tipped and injury might result from spilled hot liquid, food, or the range itself.
- If the range is pulled away from the wall for cleaning, service, or any other reason, ensure that the Anti-Tip
Device is properly reengaged when the range is pushed back against the wall.
• You should use two or more people to move and install range.
(Excessive Weight Hazard)
- Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
• You never pull or push any handles of upper& lower door to move and install range.
- Failure to do so can result in serious damage to the door of the range.
• New branch-circuit installations (1996 NEC) for mobile homes, recreational vehicles,
and installations where local codes do not allow grounding through the neutral wire
require a 4-conductor UL listed range cord or 4 wire conduit connection.
• Power supply cord and plug should not be modified. If it will not fit the outlet, have a
proper outlet Installed by a qualified electrician.
• Using an extension cord to connect the power is prohibited. The way to connect the
power cord and plug directly is strongly recommended.
• Electrical ground is required on this appliance.
• You should make sure that the power cord is not pinched by the range or heavy objects.
- Failure to do so can result in serious burns or electrical shock.
• You never remove the protection cover covering the rear of lower oven.
- Failure to do so can result in serious damage to power cord. The damage causes serious burns and electric
shock.

Part 1
SAFETY
• The middle (neutral or ground) wire of a 3 wire power cord or a 3 wire conduit has to be
connected to the middle post of the main terminal block. The remaining two wires of the
power cord or conduit have to be connected to the outside posts of the main terminal
connection block.
- Failure to do so can result in electrical shock, severe personal injury or death.
•O
nly a 4-conductor power-supply cord kit rated 120/240 volts, 50 amperes and marked for use
with ranges with closed-loop connectors or open-end spade lugs with upturned ends shall be
used. The middle (neutral) wire of the power cord or 4-wire conduit has to be connected to the
middle post of the main terminal block. The other two wires of the power cord or conduit have
to be connected to the outside posts of the main terminal connection block. The 4th ground
wire must be connected to the frame of the range with the ground screw.
- Failure to do so can result in electrical shock, severe personal injury or death.
CAUTION
• You should put on gloves during the installation procedure.
- Failure to do so can result in bodily injury.
• You should make sure that the wall covering, countertop and cabinets around the range
can withstand the heat (up to 194°F) generated by the range.
- Discoloration, delamination or melting may occur.
- This range has been designed to comply with the maximum allowable wood cabinet temperatures of 194°F.
• Cabinet storage space located above the surface units should be avoided.
• You should install a range hood that projects horizontally a minimum of 5 inches
beyond the bottom of the cabinets. If cabinet Storage is to be provided.
- The risk of burns or fire by reaching over the heated surface elements can be reduced.
• You should not install the range in the humid place. Splashing the range with water or
any electrolyte can result in electrical shock.
• You should not let cooking grease or flammable material accumulate in or near the
range.
- Failure to do so can result in serious burns.

•Y
ou never remove the protection cover
covering the rear of lower oven.
All wiring should conform to Local and NEC. This range
requires a single-phase, 3 wire, A.C 120/208V or 120/240V 60Hz
electrical system. Use only a 3-conductor or a 4-conductor
UL-listed range cord with closed-loop terminals, open-end
spade lugs with upturned ends or similar termination. DO
NOT install the power cord without a strain relief.
-F
ailure to do so can result in serious damage to power cord.
The damage causes serious burns and electric shock.
The Rear Access cover must be removed. Loosen the
three screws with a screwdriver. The terminal block
will then be accessible.
A range cord rated at 40 amps with 120/240 minimum volt
range is required. If a 50 amp range cord is used, it should
be marked for use with 13⁄8” diameter connection openings.

6 FINAL INSTALLATION
- The range could be tipped and
injury might result from spilled hot
liquid, food, or the range itself.
• Move range close enough to the opening to plug
into the receptacle.
• Slide range into position insuring that the left back
leg slides under the anti-tip bracket. Range should sit
flush against the back wall when properly installed.
• Carefully attempt to tip range forward to insure that
the anti-tip bracket is engaged properly. If properly
installed, the anti-bracket will prevent the range from
being tipped. If the range can be tipped, reinstall the
range until the bracket is properly installed and the
range will not tip forward.
• Turn on electrical power. Check the range for proper
operation as described in owner’s manual.
- If the range is pulled away from
the wall for cleaning, service, or
any other reason, ensure that the
Anti-Tip Device is properly
reengaged when the range is
pushed back against the wall.
1. Locate the bracket using the template
An Anti-tip bracket is packaged with template. The
instructions include necessary information to
complete the installation.
Read and follow range installation instruction sheet
(template).
2. Level the range
Level the range by adjusting the leveling legs with a
