Gas Pressure Regulator
You must use the gas pressure regulator supplied
with this range. For proper operations the inlet
pressure to the regulator should be as follows:
To prevent gas leaks, put pipe joint compound on,
or wrap pipe thread tape with Teflon* around, all
male (external) pipe threads.
A. Install a manual shut-off valve in the gas line
in an easily accessed location outside of the
range. Make sure everyone operating the
range knows where and how to shut off the
gas supply to the range.
B. Install male 1/2” flare union adapter to the 1/2”
NPT internal thread at inlet of regulator. Use a
backup wrench on the regulator fitting to avoid
damage.
C. 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.
Natural Gas:
Minimum pressure: 6” of Water Column
Maximum pressure: 13” of Water Column
D. Connect flexible metal appliance connector
to the adapter on the range. Position range to
permit connection at the shut-off valve.
LP Gas:
Minimum pressure: 11” of Water Column
Maximum pressure: 13” of Water Column
E. When all connections have been made, make
sure all range controls are in the off position
and turn on the main gas supply valve.
Use a liquid leak detector at all joints and
connections to check for leaks in the system.
If you are not sure about the inlet pressure
contact local gas supplier.
Shut off the main gas supply valve before
disconnecting the old range and leave it off
until the new hook-up has been completed.
Don’t forget to relight the pilot on other gas
appliances when you turn the gas back on.
Because hard piping restricts movement of
the range, the use of a CSA Internationalcertified flexible metal appliance connector is
recommended unless local codes require a hardpiped connection.
If the hard piping method is used, you must
carefully align the pipe; the range cannot be
moved after the connection is made.
When using pressures greater than 1/2 psig
to pressure test the gas supply system of the
residence, disconnect the range and individual
shut-off valve from the gas supply piping. When
using pressures of 1/2 psig or less to pressure
test the gas supply system, simply isolate the
range from the gas supply system by closing the
individual shut-off valve.
