• Install the supplied pressure regulator onto the end
of the gas inlet.
• You can install a 90° elbow (not provided) onto
the gas inlet and route the gas connections to
avoid interference with drawers or other cabinetry
features. However, it is not recommended because it
will result in a drop in gas pressure.
• Make sure the regulator is installed in the right
direction. See arrow on the underside of the
regulator.
NOTE: Instead of using solid piping to connect to
pressure regulator, an approved flexible metal
appliance connector may be used between the pipe
stub and the shut-off valve to the pressure regulator,
if local codes permit.
• Turn on gas and check for leaks:

E. Adjust Grill “LO” Setting
• Make certain gas and electricity to unit are turned off.
• Turn the grill knob to LO and remove the knob by
pulling straight off.
• Insert a small flat-blade screwdriver into the hole in the
center of the valve stem to engage set screw.
• To convert the LO setting from natural gas to LP, turn
the screw clockwise until it stops
(about 3/4 turn). It may be necessary
to grasp the exterior of the valve
stem with a pair of pliers to prevent
the valve stem from rotating as the
set screw is adjusted.
• To convert the LO setting from the LP
to natural gas setting, turn the screw
counterclockwise about 3/4 turn.
Use 108XL or
190XN orifices
for all burners.
A. Return the unused orifices to the holder. Reattach
the holder and the instruction sheet with screw in
the original storage location.
B. Replace the burner heads, caps and top grates. On
range models, replace rear vent trim.

Normally, burners do not need further adjustment.
Make adjustments only when necessary.
A. Lift off the
griddle flue
A. Turn on the gas. Plug in electrical cord.
B. Turn all burners on highest setting and check the
flames. They should be blue in color. When using
LP gas, the flames may have some yellow tipping
at the ends of the flame. Foreign particles in the
gas line may cause an orange flame at first, but
this will soon disappear.
C. Turn the burner knob to “LO” while observing the
flame.
Adjust the setting of the upper row of flames using
the valve bypass screw as follows:
Adjustments must be made with two other burners
in operation on a medium setting. This prevents the
upper row of flames from being set too low, resulting
in the flame being extinguished when other burners
are turned on.
D. To adjust the flame, remove the knobs. Insert a small
flat-blade screwdriver into the hole in the center of
the valve stem to engage screw.
