TOOLS YOU WILL NEED
IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF
MASSACHUSETTS
„ This product must be installed by a licensed
plumber or gas fitter.
„ When using ball type gas shut-off valves, they
shall be the T-handle type.
„ A flexible gas connector, when used, must not
exceed 3 feet.
WARNING
FIRE OR EXPLOSION HAZARD
When installing a gas appliance the use of old
flexible connectors can cause gas leaks and
personal injury. Always use a NEW flexible
connector.
If the information in this manual is not followed
exactly, a fire or explosion may result causing
property damage, personal injury or death.
Leak testing of the appliance shall be conducted
according to the manufacturer instructions.
Installation must be performed by a qualified
installer.
Read these instructions completely and carefully.
Installation of this range must conform with
local codes, or in the absence of local codes,
with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/
NFPA.54, latest edition. In Canada, installation
must conform with the current Natural Gas
Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.1 or the current
Propane Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.2, and
with local codes where applicable. This range
has been design-certified by CSA International
according to ANSI Z21.1, latest edition and
Canadian Gas Association according to CAN/
CGA-1.1 latest edition.
The range must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes or, in the absence
of local codes, in accordance with the National
Electrical Code (ANSI/NFPA 70, latest edition).
In Canada, electrical grounding must be in
accordance with the current CSA C22.1 Canadian
Electrical Code Part 1 and/or local codes. See
Electrical Connections in this section.
Do not install this product with an air curtain
hood or other range hood that operates by
blowing air down on the cooktop. This airflow
may interfere with operation of the gas burners
resulting in fire or explosion hazard.

WARNING
Fire Hazard: Do not use a
flame to check for gas leaks.
Drill, awl or nail
WARNING Explosion Hazard: Do not
exceed 25 ft-lbs of torque when making gas
line connections. Overtightening may crack
the pressure regulator resulting in fire or
explosion hazard.
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:
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.
When checking for proper operation of the
regulator, the inlet pressure must be at least 1”
greater than the operating (manifold) pressure as
given on rating label of product.

This oven has been designed in accordance with
the requirements of UL and CSA International
and complies with the maximum allowable wood
cabinet temperatures of 194°F (90°C).
Servicer – The electrical diagram is in an
envelope attached to the back of the range.
Before installing your range on linoleum or any
other synthetic floor covering, make sure the
floor covering can withstand 180°F without
shrinking, warping or discoloring. Do not install
the range over carpeting unless a sheet of 1/4”
thick plywood or similar insulator is placed
between the range and carpeting.

The installation of this range must conform to
the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety
Standard, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280 (formerly the
Federal Standard for Mobile Home Construction
and Saftey, Title 24, HUD Part 280). When such
standard is not applicable, use the Standard for

of the range
When this range is installed in a mobile home, it
must be secured to the floor during transit. Any
method of securing the range is adequate as
long as it conforms to the standards listed above.
Shock Hazard: This
appliance must be properly grounded. Failure to
do so can result in electric shock.
Electrical Requirements - 120-volt, 60 Hertz,
properly grounded dedicated circuit protected by a
15-amp or 20-amp circuit breaker or time delay fuse.
Note: Use of automatic, wireless, or wired external
switches that shut off power to the appliance are
not recommended for this product.
Grounding
The power cord of this appliance is equipped with
a three-prong (grounding) plug which plugs into a
standard three-prong grounding wall receptacle
to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard
from this appliance.
Where a standard two-prong wall receptacle is
encountered, it is the personal responsibility and
obligation of the customer to have it replaced with
a properly grounded three-prong wall receptacle.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT OR
REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND) PRONG FROM
THE POWER CORD. DO NOT USE AN ADAPTER.
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI’s) are
not required or recommended for gas range
receptacles. Performance of the range will not be
affected if operated on a GFCI-protected circuit
but occasional nuisance tripping of the GFCI
breaker is possible.
The customer should have the wall receptacle
and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to
make sure the receptacle is properly grounded.
