If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrical installer determine that
the ground path and wire gauge are in accordance with local
codes.
Check with a qualified electrical installer if you are not sure the

Models rated from 12.7 kW at 240 volts (9.5 at 208 volts)
require a separate 50-amp circuit.
■
A circuit breaker is recommended.
■
Flexible conduit from appliance should be connected directly
to the junction box.
■
Do not cut the conduit. The length of conduit provided is for
serviceability of the range.
■
A UL listed or CSA approved conduit connector must be
provided.
■
If the house has aluminum wiring follow the procedure below:
1. Connect a section of solid copper wire to the ends of the
flexible conduit leads.
2. Connect the aluminum wiring to the added section of
copper wire using special connectors and/or tools
designed and UL listed for joining copper to aluminum.
Follow the electrical connector manufacturer's recommended
procedure. Aluminum/copper connection must conform with
local codes and industry accepted wiring practices.

Countertop Preparation
The cooktop sides of the drop-in range fit over the cutout edge of
your countertop.
If you have a square finish (flat) countertop and the opening width
is 30" (76.2 cm), no countertop preparation is required.
Formed front-edged countertops must have molded edge
shaved flat ³⁄₈" (1.0 cm) from each front corner of opening.
Tile countertops may need trim cut back ³⁄₈" (1.0 cm) from each
front corner and/or rounded edge flattened.
30"
(76.2 cm)
³⁄₈"
(1.0 cm)
30 ¾"
(78.1 cm)
If countertop opening width is greater than 30" (76.2 cm), adjust
the ³⁄₈" (1.0 cm) dimension.
Countertop must be level. Check levelness by placing level on
countertop, first side to side, then front to back.

Adjust Leveling Legs
Electrical Connection
1. If range height adjustment is necessary, use a wrench or
pliers to loosen the 4 leveling legs.
This may be done with the range on its back or with the range
supported on 2 legs after the range has been placed back to
a standing position.
WARNING
NOTE: To place range back up into a standing position, put a
sheet of cardboard or hardboard in front of range. Using 2 or
more people, stand range back up onto the cardboard or
hardboard.
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Disconnect power before servicing.
Use 8 gauge solid copper wire.
Electrically ground oven.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
Tip Over Hazard
A child or adult can tip the range and be killed.
Connect anti-tip bracket to rear range foot.
Reconnect the anti-tip bracket, if the range is moved.
This range is manufactured with a neutral (white) power supply
wire and a cabinet-connected green (or bare) ground wire twisted
together.
1. Disconnect power.
2. Remove junction box cover if it is present.
3. Install a UL listed or CSA approved conduit connector to the
junction box.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death
or serious burns to children and adults.
2. Adjust the leveling legs to the correct height. Leveling legs
can be loosened to add up to a maximum of 1" (2.5 cm). A
minimum of ³⁄₁₆" (5.0 mm) is needed to engage the anti-tip
bracket.
NOTE: If height adjustment is made when range is standing,
tilt the range back to adjust the front legs, then tilt forward to
adjust the rear legs.
3. When the range is at the correct height, check that there is
adequate clearance under the range for the anti-tip bracket.
Before sliding range into its final position, check that the antitip bracket will slide under the range and onto the rear
leveling leg prior to anti-tip bracket installation.
