GAS COOKTOP INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Wall Outlet Location
Once the cooktop is installed in the counter
opening, you must clamp the unit down as shown.
To clamp down, insert an angle bracket into the
slot on each side of the unit as shown. Run thumb
screw up through the bracket, up against the
bottom of the counter. Tighten until the unit draws
down and is secure.
3. Provide an Adequate Gas Supply
This cooktop is designed to operate on natural
gas at 4" of manifold pressure only.
A pressure regulator is connected in series with
the manifold on the cooktop and must remain in
series with the supply line.
For proper operation, the maximum inlet
pressure to the regulator must be no more than
14" of water column (W.C.) pressure.
For checking the regulator, the inlet pressure
must be at least 1" (or 2.5 kPa) greater than the
regulator manifold pressure setting. The regulator
is set for 4" of manifold pressure, the inlet
pressure must be at least 5".
Figure 5
2. Cooktop Installation
The gas supply line to the range should be 1/2" or
3/4" pipe.
1. Visually inspect the cooktop for damage.
2. Set the cooktop into the countertop cutout.
After inserting the cooktop into the countertop
opening, make sure the unit is sitting on the
metal flange around the top of the burner
box. Cooktop must not sit on the glass or the
porcelain top. Avoid cutting an oversized hole
in the countertop.
4. LP/Propane Gas Conversion
This appliance can be used with Natural gas or
LP/Propane gas. It is shipped from the factory for
use with natural gas.
A kit for converting to LP gas is supplied with your
cooktop. The kit is marked "FOR LP/PROPANE
GAS CONVERSION".
NOTE: Do not use caulking compound; cooktop
should be removable for service when needed.

5. Install Pressure Regulator
The supply line must be equipped with an
approved manual shutoff valve. This valve should
be located in the same room as the cooktop
and should be in a location that allows ease of
opening and closing. Do not block access to
the shutoff valve. The valve is for turning on or
shutting off gas to the appliance.
Install the pressure regulator with the arrow on the
regulator pointing up toward the unit in a position
where you can reach the access cap.
WARNING Do not make the connection too
tight. The regulator is die cast. Overtightening
may crack the regulator resulting in a gas leak
and possible fire or explosion.

Once regulator is in place, open the shutoff valve
in the gas supply line. Wait a few minutes for gas
to move through the gas line.
Use pipe-joint compound made for use with
Natural and LP/Propane gas to seal all gas
connections. If flexible connectors are used, be
certain connectors are not kinked.
WARNING Do not use a flame to check for
leaks from gas connections. Checking for leaks
with a flame may result in a fire or explosion.
Check for leaks. After connecting the cooktop to
the gas supply, check the system for leaks with a
manometer. If a manometer is not available, turn
on the gas supply and use a liquid leak detector
(or soap and water) at all joints and connections
to check for leaks.
Tighten all connections if necessary to prevent
gas leakage in the cooktop or supply line.
Check alignment of control knob valves after
connecting the cooktop to the gas supply to be
sure the cooktop manifold pipe has not moved. A
misalignment could cause the valve stems to rub
on the control panel, resulting in a gas leak at the
valve.
Disconnect this cooktop and its individual
manual shutoff valve from the gas supply piping
system during any pressure testing of that system
at test pressures greater than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa or
14"water column).

Isolate the cooktop from the gas supply piping
system by closing its individual manual shutoff
valve during any pressure testing of the gas
supply piping system at test pressures equal to or
less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa or 14" water column).
