The front of your Wolf gas range must be clear
of any obstruction. For proper operation and
servicing, a clear area of at least 36" (914) in
front of the range is recommended.
IMPORTANT NOTE: It is recommended that
you operate the Wolf gas range with a Pro
ventilation hood. Contact your Wolf dealer for
details.
Your kitchen must provide an adequate supply
of fresh air to assure proper combustion and
ventilation.
Pro Wall Hood – 22" (559), 24" (610) or 27"
(686) depths and 30" (762) to 66" (1676)
widths in classic stainless steel.
For the gas range, fresh air intakes are located
below the bullnose and control knobs. For the
oven burner, there are fresh air intakes at the
bottom front of the kick panel. Never block the
fresh air intakes, as they provide air required
for proper operation. Refer to the illustration.
Pro Island Hood – 36" (914) to 66" (1676)
widths in classic stainless steel.
Most of the heated air and burner combustion
by-products from the oven(s) exit through the
back stainless steel riser. Gas ranges can be
used with the optional island trim or 5" (127),
10" (254), or 20" (508) risers available through
your Wolf dealer.
Due to the high volume of ventilation air
required, a source of outside replacement air is
recommended. This is particularly important
for tightly sealed and insulated homes. A
qualified HVAC contractor should be consulted.
Pro Hood Liner – available in widths to
accommodate 30" (762) to 60" (1524) hood
shells.
All Pro ventilation hoods have welded seams,
sealed halogen lighting and removable, dishwasher-safe stainless steel filters.
ACCESSORIES
Optional accessories are available
through your
Wolf dealer. To
obtain local dealer
information, visit
the Locator section
of our website,
wolfappliance.com.
Blower requirements may vary due to length
of duct work and number of angles. The basic
recommendation is 1 CFM per 100 Btu/hr.
Always consult your HVAC professional for
more concise blower requirements.
IMPORTANT NOTE: When installing a ventilation hood, refer to the specific requirements
of the hood for the minimum dimension to
countertop.
Keep combustibles such as solvents,
cleaning fluids, mops and rags, away from
the area surrounding all gas appliances.

from side walls, 0" (0) from rear wall.
Gas range with hood: 0" (0) from side
cabinets, 18" (457) minimum clearance
above countertop, 0" (0) from rear wall.
0" (0) clearance for adjacent combustible
materials below the countertop, both sides
and rear. The maximum depth of adjacent
overhead side cabinets is 13" (330).
Minimum clearances for gas ranges without
a ventilation hood:
Minimum vertical distance between the
surface burners or griddle to combustible
materials above the gas range must be
30" (762).
Minimum vertical distance between the
charbroiler (some models) to combustible
materials above the gas range must be

Failure to insert the hinge pin in the
appropriate hinge arm will cause damage
to the range. Minor injuries may occur.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The oven door(s) should
not be removed unless it is necessary to fit the
range through a tight doorway. Door removal
should only be done by a qualified service
technician or installer. Door removal and reinstallation may cause damage to the porcelain
interior of the oven or door(s).
If removal of the oven door(s) is necessary, a
hinge pin, supplied with the range, will need to
be inserted in the appropriate hinge arm. For
each oven door, only one hinge arm is spring
loaded, requiring use of the hinge pin for
removal of the oven door. The hinge pin will
be found taped to the inside of the oven door.
For 30" (762) and 36" (914) gas ranges, the
hinge pin will be inserted through the hole in
the right hinge arm (facing the unit). On 48"
(1219) and 60" (1524) gas ranges, the spring
hinges are located on the outer edges of the
unit. On these units, the left oven door will
have the spring hinge on the left side and the
right oven door will have the spring hinge on
the right side. Refer to the illustrations below
for the location of the spring hinge(s) for your
specific model.
If removal of the oven door(s) is necessary,
follow these steps:
1) Open the oven door to its fully opened
position and insert the supplied door hinge
pin through the hole in the appropriate
hinge arm. Refer to the illustration below.
2) Remove both upper and lower hinge
retainer mounting screws. NOTE: The oven
gasket may have to be moved slightly to
access the bottom screws.
3) After removing the mounting screws, move
the hinge retainer plate forward slightly.
NOTE: The hinge retainer plate will remain
on the door hinge assembly after the
mounting screws have been removed.
4) Carefully close the oven door to about a
60° angle from horizontal and lift the door
away from the oven. NOTE: A slight racking
motion may be required for removal.
5) For 48" (1219) and 60" (1524) gas ranges,
complete these steps for both oven doors.
Do not lift or carry the oven door by the
door handle.

This installation
must conform with
local codes and
ordinances. In the
absence of local
codes, installations
must conform with
the American
National Standard,
National Fuel Gas
Code.
Securely tighten all gas connections.
The maximum gas supply pressure to the
regulator should never exceed 14" (34.9
mb) WC (water column); .5 psi (3.5 kPa).
Failure to do so can result in explosion,
fire or death.
TYPES OF GAS
There are two types of gas, natural and liquid
propane (LP). Conversions are required in
order for appliances designed for one gas to be
operated with the other gas. Such conversions
must be performed by a Wolf authorized service
center. Make sure your gas range is correctly
adjusted for the type of gas being used.
The product rating plate has information on
the type of gas that should be used. If this
information does not agree with the type of
gas available, check with the local gas supplier.
The rating plate is located under the drip pan
that supports the cooking grates, on the left
inside wall of the range. Refer to the illustration on page 3. The rating plate for Model
R482CF is located on the right inside wall.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The gas range must be
connected to a regulated gas supply.
Provide a gas supply line of 3/4" rigid pipe to
the range location. A smaller size pipe on long
runs may result in insufficient gas supply. Pipe
joint compounds, suitable for use with LP gas
should be used. For LP gas, piping or tubing
size can be 1/2" minimum. LP gas suppliers
usually determine the size and materials used
on the system. If local codes permit, a certified,
3' (.9 m) long, 1/2" or 3/4" ID flexible metal
appliance connector is recommended for
connecting this range to the gas supply line.
The pipe coming out the back of the range
has 1/2" female threads.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The supply line must
be equipped with an approved external gas
shut-off valve located near the range in an
accessible location. Do not block access to the
shut-off valve. Refer to the illustration below.
The Wolf gas range functions up to 6,000'
(1828 m) in altitude without any adjustment. If
installation is above 6,000' (1828 m), contact
your Wolf dealer.

GAS LEAK TESTING
Before connecting the gas supply, make
sure all valves are in a closed position. Do
not connect the gas supply to an appliance that shows any sign of physical
damage.
Use a brush and liquid detergent to test all gas
connections for leaks. Bubbles around connections will indicate a leak. If a leak appears, shut
off the gas valve and adjust connections. Then
check connections again. Clean all the detergent solution from the range.
GAS MANIFOLD PRESSURE
For Natural Gas: Standard orifices
are set for 5" (12.5 mb) WC (water column).
A natural gas pressure regulator is
installed.
Never test for a gas leak with a match or
other flame.
For Propane (LP) Gas: Standard orifices
are set for 10" (25 mb) WC (water column).
A propane gas pressure regulator is
installed.
Gas Supply Pressure: For checking the
regulator setting, the maximum line
pressure for natural and propane (LP) gas:
14" (34.9 mb) WC; .5 psi (3.5 kPa). Minimum
line pressure for natural gas: 7" (17.5 mb)
WC. Minimum line pressure for propane
(LP) gas: 11" (27.4 mb) WC.
Gas Supply Regulator: To control and
maintain a uniform gas pressure in the gas
manifold, the unit must be used with a gas
pressure regulator. The burner orifices, etc.
are sized for the gas pressure delivered by
the supplied regulator. Do not remove the
regulator.
The maximum gas supply pressure to
the regulator should never exceed 14"
(34.9 mb) WC; .5 psi (3.5 kPa).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Prior to operating the
range, be sure to read the entire Wolf Gas
Ranges Use & Care Information included with
the range for important safety, service and
warranty information.
The surface burners use electronic igniters in
place of standing pilots. When the burner
control knob is pushed in and turned to the
HIGH position, the system creates a spark to
light the burner. This sparking continues until
the electronic ignition senses a flame.
Be sure to place the burner parts on each
burner base and install the burner grates
before lighting.
To check operation of the surface burners,
push in and turn each control knob to the HIGH
position. The flame should light within four
seconds.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Initial lighting of the
surface burners may take slightly longer, as air
in the system must be purged before gas can
be supplied to the burner.
If the burners do not light properly, turn
control knob to the OFF position. Check that
the burner parts are in the proper position.
Check that the power supply cord is plugged in
and that the circuit breaker or house fuse has
not blown. Check that the shut-off valve is in
the ON position. Check operation again,
waiting at least five minutes; if the burners do
not light properly at this point, contact a Wolf
authorized service center.
O V E N O P E R AT I O N
Turn the oven(s) on and verify that the oven(s)
