About this manual
READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS COMPLETELY AND CAREFULLY.
Important note to the installer
• Read all instructions contained in these installation instructions before installing range.
• Remove all packing materials from the oven compartments before connecting the electrical supply
to the range.
• Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
• Be sure to leave these instructions with the consumer.
Important note to the consumer
Keep these instructions for the local electrical inspector’s use.
• As when using any appliance generating heat, there are certain safety precautions you should follow.
• Be sure your range is installed and grounded properly by a qualified installer or service technician.
• Make sure the wall coverings around the range can withstand the heat generated by the range.
• To eliminate the need to reach over the surface elements, cabinet storage space above the elements
should be avoided.
• The range should not be placed on a base.
FOR YOUR SAFETY
WARNING
WARNING
If the information in this manual is not followed exactly, a fire or electrical
shock may result causing property damage, personal injury or death.
WARNING
WARNING
Before beginning the installation, switch power off at the service panel and
lock the service disconnecting means to prevent power from being switched on accidentally. When the
service disconnecting means cannot be locked, securely fasten a prominent warning device, such as a
tag, to the service panel.
WARNING
WARNING This appliance must be properly grounded.
ANTI-TIP DEVICE
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING, THE APPLIANCE MUST BE SECURED BY PROPERLY
INSTALLING THE ANTI-TIP BRACKET PROVIDED WITH THIS APPLIANCE.
WARNING
WARNING
• ALL RANGES CAN TIP
• INJURY TO PERSONS COULD RESULT
• INSTALL ANTI-TIP BRACKET PACKED WITH RANGE
• SEE INSTALLATION MANUAL
If you pull the range out and away from the wall for any reason, make sure the Anti-Tip bracket is
engaged when the range is pushed back against the wall.

CHECKING THE INSTALLATION SITE
Clearances and dimensions
To install the range, refer to the following figure.
For installation in CANADA, a Free-standing range is not to be installed closer than 12mm
from any adjacent surface.
CAUTION
This range has been designed to comply with the maximum allowable wood
cabinet temperatures of 194°F. Make sure the wall covering, countertops and cabinets around the
range can withstand the heat (up to 194°F) generated by the range. If not, discoloration, delamination
or melting may occur.

IMPORTANT
To eliminate the risk of burns or fire caused by reaching over heated surface
units, cabinet storage space located above the surface units should be avoided. If cabinet storage is to
be provided, the risk can be reduced by installing a range hood that projects horizontally a minimum of
5” beyond the bottom of the cabinets.

STEP 1.MEETING ELECTRICAL CONNECTION REQUIREMENTS
CAUTION
For personal safety, do not use an extension cord with this appliance.
Remove house fuse or open circuit breaker before beginning installation.
CAUTION
02 CONNECTING THE POWER
This appliance must be supplied with the proper voltage and frequency, and
connected to an individual properly grounded branch circuit, protected by a
circuit breaker or fuse having amperage as specified on the rating plate. The
rating plate is located above the drawer on the oven frame. (Fig. 1 or Fig. 2)
We recommend you have the electrical wiring and hookup of your range
connected by a qualified electrician. After installation, have the electrician show
you where your main range disconnect is located.
Check with your local utilities for electrical codes which apply in your area.
Failure to wire your oven according to governing codes could result in a
hazardous condition. If there are no local codes, your range must be wired and
fused to meet the requirements of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No.
70–Latest Edition. You can get a copy by writing:
(Fig. 1)
National Fire Protection Association
Batterymarch Park
Quincy, MA 02269
(Fig. 2)
Effective January 1, 1996, the National Electrical Code requires that new construction (not
existing) utilize a 4-conductor connection to an electric range.
When installing an electric range in new construction, follow Steps 2 and 3 for 4-wire
connection.
You must use a 3-wire, single-phase A.C. 208Y/120 Volt or 240/120 Volt, 60 hertz electrical system.
If the electrical service provided does not meet the above specifications, have a licensed electrician
install an approved outlet.
Use only a 3-conductor or a 4-conductor UL-listed range cord. These cords may be provided with ring
terminals on wire and a strain relief device.
A range cord rated at 40 amps with 125/250 minimum volt range is required. A 50 amp range cord
is not recommended but if used, it should be marked for use with nominal 13⁄8” diameter connection
openings. Care should be taken to center the cable and strain relief within the knockout hole to keep
the edge from damaging the cable.
• Because range terminals are not accessible after range is in position, flexible service conduit or cord
must be used.
NOTE If conduit is being used, go to Step 4 on page 9.
ALL NEW BRANCH-CIRCUIT CONSTRUCTIONS, MOBILE HOMES,
RECREATIONAL VEHICLES AND INSTALLATIONS WHERE LOCAL CODES DO
NOT ALLOW GROUNDING THROUGH NEUTRAL, REQUIRE A 4-CONDUCTOR
UL-LISTED RANGE CORD.

For conduit installations, insert the strain relief (not included) into the conduit hole (11/8”). Then thread
the conduit cord through the body of the strain relief and fasten the ring. Reinstall the bracket.
Installing a 3-wire conduit
• Aluminum building wire may be used but it must be rated for the correct amperage and voltage to
make the connection. Connect wires according to Step 4 depending on the number of wires.
• Wire used, location and enclosure of splices, etc., must conform to good wiring practices and local
codes.
1. Loosen the 3 lower terminal screws from the terminal
block.
2. Insert the center bare wire (white/neutral) tip through
the bottom center terminal block opening. On certain
models, the wire will need to be inserted through the
ground strap opening and then into the bottom center
block opening.

INSTALLING THE ANTI-TIP DEVICE
WARNING
WARNING
To reduce the risk of tipping, the appliance must be secured by properly
installing the Anti-Tip device packed with the appliance.
• Refer to the installation instructions supplied with the bracket.
Anti-Tip
bracket
*approximately
21/32”(16.5mm)
*NOTE: To install Anti-Tip bracket,
release the leveling leg. A minimum
clearance of 21/32”(16.5mm) is required
between the range bottom and the
kitchen floor.
Screw must enter wood or
concrete
03 INSTALLING THE RANGE
• Unless properly installed, the range could be tipped by stepping or sitting on the door. Injury may
result from spilled hot liquids or from the range itself.
1.Locate the bracket using the template
The Anti-Tip bracket is packaged with a template. The instructions include information necessary to
complete the installation. Read and follow the instructions on the sheet (template) for range installation.
2.Level the range
Level the range by adjusting the leveling legs with a wrench.

3.Check your adjustments
Use a spirit level to check your adjustments. Place the level diagonally on the oven rack, and check
each direction for level.
1. Check direction 1.
2. Check direction 2.
If the spirit level doesn’t show level on the rack, adjust the
leveling legs with a wrench.
FINALIZING THE INSTALLATION
• Move range close enough to the opening to plug into the receptacle.
• Slide range into position insuring that the rear left(or rear right) leg slides under the Anti-Tip bracket.
The range will sit 0” away from the back wall when properly installed.
• Carefully tip the range forward to insure that the Anti-Tip bracket engages the back brace and
prevents tip-over.
• Turn on the electrical power. Check the range for proper operation as described in the user manual.
