We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety messages. This is the safety alert symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others. All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.” These words mean: DANGER WARNING You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately follow instructions. You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow instructions. All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed. IMPORTANT: Save for local electrical inspector's use. W10055460B WARNING Tip Over Hazard A child or adult can tip the range and be killed. Securely attach mounting screws to cabinet. Reattach mounting screws if the range is moved. See installation instructions for details. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or serious burns to children and adults. Making sure the mounting screws are installed: Mounting • Remove side trim from both sides of the range. screw • Look for screws securely attached to cabinet. • Replace side trim. INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS ■ The anti-tip mounting screws must be installed. See “Install Range” section. ■ The range should be located for convenient use in the kitchen. ■ To eliminate the risk of burns or fire by reaching over heated surface units, cabinet storage space located above the surface units should be avoided. If cabinet storage is to be provided, the risk can be reduced by installing a range hood or microwave range hood combination that projects horizontally a minimum of 5" (12.7 cm) beyond the bottom of the cabinets. ■ Range support slats must be solid, level and flush with bottom of cabinet cutout. Floor must be able to support a weight of 225 lbs (102.0 kg). Tools and Parts Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.
