Clearance Dimensions
•This rangetop may be installed directly adjacent to existing 36” (91.4 cm) high base cabinets.
IMPORTANT: The top of the side trim MUST be 3/8” (.95 cm) above the adjacent base cabinet countertop.
•The rangetop CANNOT be installed directly adjacent to sidewalls, tall cabinets, tall appliances, or other side vertical surfaces
above 36” (91.4 cm) high. There must be a minimum of 6” (15.2 cm) side clearance from the rangetop to such combustible
surfaces above the 36” (91.4 cm) counter height.
•Within the 6” (15.2 cm) side clearance to combustible vertical surfaces above 36” (91.4 cm), the maximum wall cabinet depth
must be 13” (33.0 cm) and wall cabinets within this 6” (15.2 cm) side clearance must be 18” (45.7 cm) above the 36” (91.4 cm) high
countertop.
•Wall cabinets above the rangetop must be a minimum of 42” (106.7 cm) above the rangetop cooking surface for the full width of
the rangetop. This minimum height requirement does not apply if a rangetop hood is installed over the cooking surface.
CAUTION
BURN HAZARD
To avoid risk of personal injury; the
use of cabinets for storage above the
appliance may result in a potential
burn hazard. Combustible items may
ignite, metallic items may become hot and cause
burns. If a cabinet storage is to be provided the
risk can be reduced by installing a rangehood
that projects horizontally a minimum 5” (12.7 cm)
beyond the bottom of cabinets.

hood installation instructions for additional information. These
dimensions provide for safe and efficient operation of the hood.

Electrical & Gas Requirements
Electrical Requirements
WARNING
There is no connection necessary beyond plugging the unit
into a polarized, grounded, 120 volt, 60 Hz, 15 amp circuit. The
minimum of 120 VAC is required for proper operation of gas
ignition systems. This circuit MUST be grounded and properly
polarized. The unit is equipped with a 16-SPT2 power cord.
Electrical shock hazard
To avoid the risk of electrical shock, personal
injury or death; verify electrical power is
turned off at the breaker box and gas supply is
turned off until the rangetop is installed and ready to
operate, installation by an authorized installer only.
Gas Connection
The gas supply (service) line must be the same size or greater than
the inlet line of the appliance. This rangetop uses a 1/2” (1.3 cm) ID
NPT (Sch40) inlet. Sealant on all pipe joints must be resistive to LP
gas.
DANGER
GAS LEAK HAZARD
To avoid risk of personal injury or death;
leak testing of the appliance must be
The rangetop is designed specifically for natural gas or liquid
conducted according to the manufacturer’s
propane (LP) gas. Before beginning installation, verify that the model
instructions. Before placing appliance in
is compatible with the intended
operation, always check for gas leaks with
gas supply.
soapy water solution.
• DO NOT USE AN OPEN FLAME TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.
Manual shut-off valve:
This installer-supplied valve must be installed in the gas service line before the appliance in the gas stream and in a location where
it can be reached quickly in the event of an emergency. Any opening behind the rangetop should be sealed.
In Massachusetts: A “T” handle type manual valve must be installed in the gas supply line to the appliance.
IMPORTANT: Any conversion required must be performed by your dealer or a qualified licensed plumber or gas service company.
Please provide the service person with this manual before work begins.
Pressure Regulator:

)
Flexible Connections:
If the unit is to be installed with flexible couplings and/or quickdisconnect fittings, the installer must use a heavy-duty AGA
design-certified flexible connector of at least 1/2” (1.3 cm) ID
NPT (with suitable strain reliefs) in compliance with ANSI Z21.41
and Z21.69. In Canada: CAN 1-6, 10-88 metal connectors for gas
appliances and CAN 1-6.9 M79 quick disconnect devices for use
with gas fuel.
In Massachusetts: This appliance must be installed with a 36” (3foot) long flexible gas connector.

•All heavy-duty, commercial type cooking equipment must have a pressure regulator on the incoming service line for safe and
efficient operation, since service pressure may fluctuate with local demand. External regulators are not required on this rangetop
since a regulator is built into each unit at the factory. Under no condition bypass this built-in regulator.

General Information
READ AND FOLLOW ALL WARNING AND CAUTION INFORMATION WHEN
INSTALLING THIS APPLIANCE.
WARNING
Moving hazard
•All openings in the wall behind the appliance and in the floor under the
appliance should be sealed.
•Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
To avoid risk of severe personal injury;
this appliance requires two or more
personnel while handling and moving.
Possible use of appliance moving
devices is recommended.
Moving, Handling, and Unpacking
•Remove and discard all packing materials, including cardboard and tape
on the outside of the rangetop.
•Remove the burner grates and styrofoam off the top cooking surface.
Be sure to remove the burner caps packaged in styrofoam below the
burner grates.
•Some stainless steel parts may have a plastic protective wrap which
must be peeled off. The interior should be washed thoroughly with hot,
soapy water to remove film residues and any dust or debris before being
used, then rinsed and wiped dry. Solutions stronger than soap and
water are rarely needed.

Final Preparation
Some stainless steel parts may have a protective wrap, which must be peeled off.
All stainless steel body parts should be wiped regularly with hot, soapy water at the end of each cooling period and with liquid
cleaner designed for this material when soapy water will not do the job.
If build-up occurs, DO NOT use steel wool, or abrasive cloths, cleaners, or powders. If it is necessary to scrape stainless steel
surface to remove encrusted material, soak area with hot, wet towels to loosen the material, then use a wooden or nylon spatula
or scraper. DO NOT use a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape stainless steel surfaces. Scratches are almost
impossible to remove. DO NOT permit citrus or tomato juice to remain on stainless steel surface, as citric acid will permanently
discolor stainless steel. Wipe up any spills immediately.
Performance Checklist
qualified installer should check top burner ignition.
See drawing for proper flame height on HI. The low flame should light at
every port.
