IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Read and follow all instructions before using your oven to prevent the risk of fire, electric shock, personal injury, or
damage when using the range. This guide does not cover all possible conditions that may occur. For further assistance
contact your service agent or manufacturer.
This is the safety alert symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can cause personal injury to
you and others. All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol with either the word “WARNING” or
“CAUTION.”
WARNING
This symbol will alert you to hazards or unsafe practices which could cause serious bodily harm or death.
CAUTION
This symbol will alert you to hazards or unsafe practices which could cause bodily injury or property damage.
WARNING
• The information in this manual should be followed exactly.
• Do not step or sit on the oven door. Install the Anti-Tip Brackets 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.
- Install the Anti-Tip Brackets.
- A child or adult can be killed when the range is tipped.
- Anti-Tips will fasten the range by holding the range’s 2 legs of the rear side and the Anti-Tip Bracket Template
lets you know proper locations of Anti-Tip Brackets easily.
- 2) Engage the range to the Anti-Tip Brackets by putting the range’s 2 legs into each Anti-Tip Bracket.
- 3) Re-engage the Anti-Tip Brackets if you can move the range except for range’s front direction.
- 4) See installation instructions for details (refer to the page 11).
- Failure to do so can result in death or serious burns to children or adults.
• 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 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.

SAFETY
WARNING
• Power supply cord and plug should not be modified. If it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet
• 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 oven.
- Failure to do so can result in serious damage to power cord. The damage causes serious burns and electric
shock.
• 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.
• Only 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.
• You should not install the range in the humid place. Splashing the range with water or any electrolyte can
result in electrical shock.
- Failure to do so can result in serious burns.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
This appliance must be installed and grounded on a
branch circuit by a qualified technician in accordance
with the National Electrical code ANSI/NFPA NO. 70 latest edition.
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.
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. This appliance may be connected by means
of conduit or power cord. If conduit is being used, go to
page 7 for 3 wire conduit connections or page 8 for 4
wire conduit connections.
WARNING
• 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.

ANTI-TIP DEVICE INSTALLATION
WARNING
• Any person should not step or
sit on the oven door. You should
install the Anti-Tip Brackets
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 AntiTip Device is properly reengaged
when the range is pushed back
against the wall. Broiling beyond
recommended cooking times.

After check direction Ç .
If the level doesn’t show

the leveling legs with a
wrench.
FINAL INSTALLATION
• Move range close enough to the opening to plug into
the receptacle.
• Slide range into position insuring that both back legs
slide under the anti-tip brackets. Range should sit flush
against the back wall when properly installed.
• Carefully attempt to tip range forward to insure that
the anti-tip brackets are engaged properly. If properly
installed, the anti-brackets will prevent the range from
being tipped. If the range can be tipped, reinstall the
range until the brackets are 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.
