INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Do not locate your 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 blocked by carpeting or woodwork.
Your range, like many other household units, is heavy
and can be installed on 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.
When the floor covering ends at the front of the
range, the area that the range will be installed on
should be built up with plywood to the same level or
higher than the floor covering. This will allow the
range to be moved for cleaning and servicing, as well
as proper air flow to the range.
Also, make sure the floor covering can resist 180°F
(82°C). See the "INSTALLATION SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS" (included in this manual).
Make sure the wall coverings around your range can
resist the heat generated (up to 200°F/93°C) by the
range. See the "INSTALLATION SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS" (included in this manual).

1. PROVIDE ADEQUATE GAS SUPPLY
Your range is designed to operate at a pressure of
5” of water column on natural gas or 10” of water
column on LP.
Make sure you are supplying your range with the type
of gas for which it is configured.
This range is convertible for use on natural or LP gas.
When using this range on LP gas, conversion must be
made by a qualified LP installer before attempting to
operate the range.
For proper operation, the pressure of natural gas
supplied to the regulator must be between 5” and 13”
of water column.
8
For LP gas, the pressure supplied to the regulator
must be between 10” and 13” of water column.
When checking for correct operation of the regulator,
the inlet pressure must be at least 1” more than the
operating (manifold) pressure as given above.
The pressure regulator located at the inlet of the
range must remain in the supply line regardless of
which type of gas is being used.
A flexible metal appliance connector used to connect
the range to the gas supply line should have an I.D. of
5/8” and a max of 5ft. In Canada, flexible connectors
must be single wall metal connectors less than 6 feet
in length.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Shut off the range gas supply valve before
removing the old range and leave it off until the
new hook-up has been completed.
Because hard piping restricts movement of the range,
the use of a CSA International-certified flexible metal
appliance connector should be used unless local
codes require a hard-piped connection.
NEVER reuse an old connector when installing a new
range.
To protect against gas leaks, use a qualified pipe joint
sealant on all external threads.

the adapter on the range. Position range to permit
connection at the shut-off valve.
D When all connections have been made, be sure
all range controls are in the off position and turn
on the main gas supply valve. Gas leaks may
occur in your system and result in a dangerous
situation. Gas leaks may not be detected by smell
alone.
Check all gas connection joints and fittings for
leaks with a non-corrosive leak detection fluid,
then wipe off.
Gas suppliers recommend you purchase and
install an UL approved gas detector. Install and
use in accordance with Installation instructions.
A 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.
B Install male 1/2” flare union adapter to the 1/2”
NPT internal thread at inlet of pressure regulator.
Use a backup wrench on the pressure regulator
fitting to prevent damage.
WARNING!
DO NOT USE A FLAME TO CHECK FOR GAS
LEAKS.
WARNING!
Isolate the range from the gas supply system by
closing its individual shut-off valve during any
pressure testing of the gas supply system at test
pressures equal to or less than 1/2” psig(3.5kPa).

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
120 Volt, 60 Hertz, properly grounded dedicated circuit protected by a 15 or 20 Amp circuit breaker, or slow
blow fuse.
GROUNDING
IMPORTANT: FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE 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 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.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT OR
REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND) PRONG FROM
THE POWER CORD.
A word about GFCI’s – GFCI’s are not required or
recommended for gas range receptacles.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI’s) 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 GFCI’s 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 can occur.
PREFERRED
METHOD
CAUTION:
The customer should have the circuit checked by a
qualified electrician to make sure the receptacle is
properly grounded.
DO NOT use an adapter plug because disconnecting
of the power cord places undue strain on the adapter
and leads to eventual failure of the adapter ground
terminal.
The installation of appliances designed for mobile
home installation must conform with the Manufactured
Home Construction and Safety Standard, Title 24
CFR, Part 3280 (formerly the Federal Standard for
Mobile Home Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD,
Part 280) or, when such standard is not applicable,
the Standard for Manufactured Home Installations,
latest edition (Manufactured Home Sites,
Communities and Set-Ups), ANSI A225.1, latest
edition, or with local codes. In Canada, mobile home
installation must be in accordance with the current
CAN/CSA Z240/MH Mobile Home Installation Code.
