•
DO NOT TOUCH THE COOKTOP SURFACE, THE BURNERS, GRATES OR ANY AREAS
NEAR THEM. Surface burners or cooktop may be hot even though flames are not visible. Areas
near surface burners or cooktop may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do
not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials touch these areas until they have had sufficient
time to cool. Among these areas are the cooktop and surfaces facing the cooktop.
Do not wear loose-fitting or hanging garments while using the appliance. Do not let clothing or
•
other flammable materials contact hot surfaces.
Smother grease fires with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type
•
extinguisher.
•
•
Use an extinguisher ONLY if:
-
You know you have a Class A, B, C extinguisher, and you already know how to operate it.
-
The fire is small and contained in the area where it is started.
-
The fire department is being called.
-
You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.
When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or grease may catch fire if allowed to become
too hot.
•
Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let potholders touch hot heating elements, the flame or burners. Do not use a towel or
other bulky cloth instead of a potholder.
•
Do not heat unopened food containers. Buildup of pressure may cause the container to burst
and result in injury.
•
Stepping, leaning or sitting on this cooktop can result in serious injuries and also cause damage
to the cooktop.
5
•
Never use this appliance as a space heater to heat or warm the room. Doing so may result in
carbon monoxide poisoning and overheating of the oven.
•
Know which knob controls which surface burner. Visually check that the burner has lit. Then
adjust the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.
•
Clean the appliance regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Exhaust fan
ventilation hoods and grease filters should be kept clean. Do not allow grease to accumulate on hood
or filter. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire. When cooking food turn the hood, fan on. Refer
to hood manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
•
Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend over adjacent surface burners. To
reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with
the utensil, the handle of the utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not
extend over adjacent surface burners.
•
Never leave surface burners unattended at high heat settings. Boil overs cause smoking and
greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
•
Do not use aluminum foil to line any part of the cooktop, use aluminum foil only to cover food
during cooking. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or fire.
•
Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are
suitable for cooktop service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer’s recommendations for cooktop use.
•
Do not use decorative surface burner covers. If a burner is accidentally turned on, the
decorative cover will become hot and possibly melt. You will not be able to see that the burner is on.
Burns will occur if the hot covers are touched. Damage may also be done to the cooktop or burners
because the covers may cause overheating. Air will be blocked from the burner and cause
combustion problems.
6
•
Always use proper flame size. Adjust flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the
utensil. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame to direct contact and
may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to flame will also improve efficiency.
•
Use the proper pan sizes. This cooktop is equipped with surface units of different sizes. Select
utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit. The use of undersized utensils
will expose a portion of the surface heating unit to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing.
Proper relationship of utensil to the surface unit will also improve efficiency.
•
Do not use stove top grills on your gas cooktop. If you use a stove top grill on a sealed gas
burner, it will cause incomplete combustion and can result in exposure to carbon monoxide levels
above allowable current standards. This can be hazardous to your health.

Getting Started
Grounding Instructions
• This cooktop features a pilotless electric
ignition for energy savings and reliability. It
operates on a 120 volt, 60 Hz power supply.
A separate circuit, protected by a 15 amp time
delay fuse or circuit breaker, is required.
For personal safety, the cooktop must be
properly grounded. A properly-grounded 3prong receptacle (see Figure 1) should be
located 12” below the countertop and within
reach of the cooktop’s four-foot power cord.
For maximum safety, the power cord must be
plugged into an electrical outlet that is correctly
polarized and properly grounded.
Figure 1
• See the Installation Instructions packaged with this cooktop for complete installation and
grounding instructions.
•
DO NOT operate the cooktop using a 2-prong adapter or an extension cord. If a 2-prong wall
receptacle is the only available outlet, it is the personal responsibility of the consumer to have it
replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician.
• This appliance is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug for your protection against shock hazard
and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded receptacle. To avoid fire hazard or electrical
shock, DO NOT cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug and DO NOT use an adapter plug,
an extension cord, or remove grounding prong from electrical power cord. Failure to follow this
warning can cause serious injury, fire or death.
•
Severe shock, or damage to the cooktop may occur if the cooktop is not installed by a qualified
installer or electrician.
9
•
Any additions, changes or conversions required in order for this appliance to satisfactorily meet
the application needs must be made by a qualified service technician in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions and all codes and requirements of the authority having jurisdiction.
Failure to follow the instructions could result in serious injury or property damage. The qualified
agency performing this work assumes responsibility for the conversion.
Liquefied Petroleum (Propane) Gas
Conversion
• This appliance can be used with Natural Gas and Propane (LP) 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”. For conversion, follow the installation instructions which are in this manual.
•
The conversion must be performed by a qualified service technician in accordance with the kit
instructions and all local codes and requirements. Failure to follow instructions could result in serious
injury or property damage. The qualified agency performing this work assumes responsibility for the
conversion.
Surface Cooking
Flame Size
• For most cooking, start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower one to complete the
process. The size and type of utensil used and the amount of food being cooked will influence the
setting needed for cooking.
• For deep fat frying, use a thermometer and adjust the surface control knob accordingly. If the fat is
too cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy. If the fat is too hot, the food will brown so quickly
that the center will be undercooked. Do not attempt to deep fry too much food at once as the food will
neither brown nor cook properly.
10
•
Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the utensil (see Figure 2). A higher flame
simply wastes heat and energy, and increases your risk of being burned by the flame.
Figure 2
Proper Burner Adjustments
• The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue and hardly
visible in a well-lighted room. Each cone of flame should be steady and sharply defined. Adjust or
clean burner if flame is yellow-orange. To clean burners, see instructions under Care and Cleaning.

Placement of Burner Heads and Caps
For all burners:
• Place a burner cap on each burner head (see
Figure 4), matching the cap size to the head
size. The cap for each burner has an inner
locating ring which centers the cap correctly on
the burner head. Be sure that all the burner
Figure 4
caps and burner heads are correctly placed
BEFORE using your appliance.
• Make sure each burner cap is properly
aligned and level (see Figure 5).
•
Turn the burner on to determine if it will
light. If the burner does not light, contact
Figure 5
a qualified service center. Do not service the
sealed burner yourself.
Surface Cooking Utensils
For lower gas consumption and better efficiency: Use only flat-bottomed pans of dimensions
suitable for the burners, as shown in the table below. Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the
bottom of the pan. There should be no gaps between the pan and ruler. As soon as a liquid comes
to a boil take care to turn the flame down to a level that will just keep it simmering.
Specialty pans (lobster pots and pressure cookers) may be used but must conform to the
recommended cookware requirements.
During cooking processes involving fats or oils, watch your foods carefully because these
substances may catch fire if brought to high temperatures.

Setting Surface Controls
Regardless of size, always select a utensil that is suitable for the amount and type of food being
prepared. Select a burner and flame size appropriate to the pan. Never allow flames to extend
beyond the outer edge of the pan.
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic
wrappings on top of the cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders,
towels or wood spoons could catch fire if placed too close to a flame.

Care and Cleaning
IMPORTANT
To avoid possible burns use care when cleaning the cooktop. DO NOT attempt to clean the
cooktop whenever the cooktop or burner heads are still hot. To avoid possible burns DO NOT
attempt any of the following cleaning instructions before turning OFF ALL of the surface
burners and allowing them to cool.
• Control Knobs - For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils
and built-up grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry.
DO NOT use steel wool or acidic cleaners on the knobs; as they can scratch.
• Burner Grates - Clean burner grates in the dishwasher and dry upon removal.
• Burner Caps - Should you ever need to remove the burner caps for cleaning lift the burner cap
off the burner head. Clean heavy soils with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and
immediately thoroughly dry including the bottom and inside of the cap. Do not use harsh abrasive
cleaners. They can scratch the cap. Do not clean burner caps in dishwasher.
• Burner Heads - The holes in the burners of your cooktop MUST be kept clean at all times for proper
ignition and a complete, even flame. . Remove any food from between the burner slots using a small
nonabrasive brush like a toothbrush and afterwards wipe using a damp cloth. To remove deposits
from the burner cavities, remove the cap and separate the two parts. Clean the burner holes
routinely with a small gauge wire or needle and especially after bad spillovers which could clog these
holes. After cleaning, put the two parts back together and return them correctly to their position,
making sure they are seated and level. DO NOT put burner units in the dishwasher.
• Stainless Steel - Clean stainless steel with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water
and a cloth. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorines. Do not use harsh
scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for cleaning stainless steel.

Advance Preparation
•
For proper operation of a gas appliance, the air necessary for the combustion of the gas must be
able to flow into the room naturally. The air must flow into the room directly through openings in the
outside walls. These openings must have an unobstructed cross-section not less than 2m3/hfor each
kw of power (see total power in kw on the appliance).
• This opening must be constructed so that it will not be obstructed from inside or outside, or
constructed close to the floor. The opening is recommended to be on the side opposite to that on
which the flue gases are discharged.
• Avoid placing cabinetry directly above
cooktop and bottom of range hood. The range

than 13″ deep (see Figure 6).
• Working areas adjacent to the cooktop
should have 18″ minimum clearance between
countertop and cabinet bottom.
Make sure the wall coverings, countertop and
cabinets around the cooktop can withstand
heat (up to 200º F) generated by the cooktop.
• Maintain 30″ minimum clearance between
cooktop surface and cabinets installed above
the cooktop.
Figure 6
•
If range hood is installed above cooktop,
maintain a 30” minimum clearance between
• A range hood with minimum 350 CFM that projects at least 5” beyond front of cabinets can reduce
risk of burns caused by reaching over heated surface units.
18
Provide an Adequate Gas and Electrical
Supply
•
Installation must comply with local codes. In the absence of local codes, the gas cooktop must
comply with the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1—latest edition in the United States, or in
Canada CAN/CGA B149.1, and CAN/CGA B149.2, and the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No.
70—latest edition in United States, or in Canada CSA Standard C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code,

Installing the Pressure Regulator
WARNING: Never reuse old flexible connectors. The use of old flexible connectors can cause
gas leakage and personal injury. Always use new flexible connectors when installing a gas appliance.
To reduce the possibility of gas leakage, apply Teflon tape or a thread compound approved for use
with LP or Natural gases to all threaded connections.
• This cooktop is set for natural gas and is designed to operate at 5” water column pressure. The
gas supply is required to provide a minimum of 6” to a maximum of 14” water column pressure to the
cooktop regulator.
22
• If the cooktop is converted for liquid pretroleum (LP) gas, the LP gas supply is required to provide
a minimum of10” to a maximum of 14” water column to the cooktop regulator.
• The pressure regulator must be connected in series with the manifold of the cooktop and must
remain in series with the supply line regardless the type of gas being used.
•
The gas supply line must be equipped
with an approved manual shut-off valve. In
an easily accessible location in the same
room as the cooktop. Do not block access
to the shutoff valve. Be sure you know how
and where to shut off the gas supply to the
cooktop. Install the electrical outlet 12”
below the countertop (see Figure 13).
Figure 13
1) The gas inlet is located on the bottom of the cooktop at the rear and 8 ½” from the right hand
edge of the cooktop. Make gas connection through rear wall, or on cabinet floor at rear. Install
the house gas supply at least 1” from the back wall.
2) When installing, fit a safety tap at the end of the pipeline. The appliance leaves the factory tested
and set for natural gas. Make sure that the type of gas to be supplied to the appliance is the
same as that shown on the label affixed to the underside of the cooktop.
3) Make the connection to the gas system using a rigid ½”or ¾”metal pipe and regulation unions, or
with a stainless steel hose complying with the local standard. If metal hoses are used, take care
that they do not come into contact with mobile parts and are not crushed. This must also be
checked if the cooktop is to be combined with an oven.
4) The gas intake connection of the appliance has a “male thread.” When making the connection,
take care not to apply stresses of any kind to the appliance. Over-tightening may crack the
regulator resulting in a gas leak and possible fire or explosion (see Figure 14).
23
Figure 14
5) 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.
6) After connecting the cooktop to the gas supply, make sure all burners knobs are in the OFF
position and 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.
•
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.
•
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).

Electrical Connection
Before making the connection, make sure that:
1) The safety circuit-breaker and the electrical system are able to with stand the load of the
appliance.
2) The power supply system has a ground connection in good working order in accordance with the
regulations in force.
3) The electrical socket is easily accessible with the appliance installed. In all cases, the power
supply lead must be positioned so that it does not reach a temperature 50oC above the room
temperature at any point.
4) If installed above a built-in oven, the cooktop cable must not touch the oven below (see Figure 15).
Figure 15
Assembling the Burners
The electrode of the electronic ignition system is positioned above the surface of the burner base. Do
not remove a burner cap or touch the electrode of a burner while another is turned on. Damage or
electrical shock may occur.
25
1. Place burner heads over the burner base. Make sure the hole in the burner head is properly
aligned with the electrode in the burner base (see Figure 16).
2. Place the burner caps on the burner heads. Make sure that the burner caps are properly seated
on the burner head (see Figure 17).
Figure 16
Figure 17
3. Operation of the electric igniters should be tested after the cooktop and supply line have been
carefully checked for leaks and the cooktop has been connected to the electrical power. To check
igniters, push and turn a burner valve to the LITE position. All spark igniters will make a series of
sparks (ticking sounds), but only the burner turned to LITE will light.
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".
26
When the cooktop is converted for liquid pretroleum (LP) gas, the LP gas supply is required to
provide a minimum of 10” to a maximum of 14” water column to the cooktop regulator.
The conversion must be performed by a qualified service technician in accordance with
the kit instructions and all local codes and requirements. Failure to follow instructions could
result in serious injury or property damage. The qualified agency performing this work
assumes responsibility for the conversion.

WARNING
Failure to make the appropriate conversion can result in serious personal injury and property
damage.
TOOLS YOU WILL NEED FOR CONVERSION
Wrench
7mm Nut Driver
Safety Glasses
Small Flat-head Screwdriver (2 to 2.4 mm or 3/32″ tip size, 60 mm long)
A. ADJUST THE REGULATOR
a) Disconnect all electrical power, at the main circuit breaker or fuse box.
b) Shut off the gas supply to the cooktop by closing the manual shut-off valve.
c) Adjust the pressure regulator by doing the following:
27
1) Unscrew the regulator cap with the wrench (see Figure 19).
Figure 19
2) This is how the retainer pin looks for Natural Gas usage (see Figure 20).
Figure 20
3) Remove the retainer pin (see Figure 21).
Figure 21
4) Reverse the retainer pin and put back into the regulator cap. This is how the regulator pin looks
for LP gas usage (see Figure 22).
28
Figure 22
5) Screw the regulator cap back into the regulator and re-attach the regulator to the nipple and flare
union (see Figures 14 and 23).

B. CHANGE BURNER NOZZLES
INSTALLATION TIP: First remove all nozzles and then start replacing them. This will help to prevent
the possibility that some may not be replaced.
1) Remove the burner grates, burner caps and burner heads.
2) Using a 7mm nut driver, remove the burner nozzles.
IMPORTANT: Carefully read and observe each nozzle label for correct location (see Figure 18).

3) Install the proper nozzles in the exact locations as noted in the illustrations above (see Figure
24).
4) Replace the burner bases, heads, caps and top grates. Make sure burner caps are properly
seated on the burner head (see Figure 17).
C. ADJUST BURNER FLAMES
1) Turn all burners on highest setting and check the flames. They should be blue in color and may
have some yellow tipping at the ends of the flame when using LP gas. Foreign particles in the
gas line may cause an orange flame at first, but this will soon disappear.
2) Turn the cooktop burner knob to “LO” while observing the flame.
3) 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.
30
-
To adjust the flame, remove the knobs, insert a screwdriver through the access hole in valve
shaft as shown (see Figure 25). Make the adjustment by slowly turning the screw until flame
appearance is correct.
Figure 25
-
If the flames are too small or fluttered, open the valve more than the original setting.
-
If the flames are too large, close the valve more than the original setting.
D. TESTING FLAME STABILITY
Test 1——Turn the knob from “HI” to “LO” quickly. If the upper row of flames goes out at this setting,
increase the flame size and test again.
Test 2——With the burner on “LO”, open and close the cabinet door under the cooktop. If the flame
is extinguished by the air currents created by the door movement, increase the flame height and test
again.
E. FLAME RE-CHECK
After the adjustment is made, turn all burners off. Ignite each burner individually. Observe the flame
at the “HI” position. Rotate the knob to the lowest setting and be sure that the flame size decreases
as the knob is rotated counter-clockwise.
Once the conversion has been completed and has passed testing, fill out the conversion
sticker and include your name, organization and the date conversion is made. Apply the
sticker near the cooktop gas inlet opening to alert others in the future that this appliance has
been converted. If converting back to Natural Gas, please remove the sticker so others know
that the appliance is set to use its original gas.
