GAS CONNECTIONS
Gas supply connections and pipe joint compound must be suitable for sealing piping for propane or natural
gases.
The oven is provided with a regulator integral to the gas solenoid valve and requires no external regulator.
The manual gas shutoff valve is located at the bottom of the front control panel.
–8–
The oven should be connected to the gas line after leveling. The gas supply line must be at least the equivalent
of 3⁄4" (19mm) iron pipe. Make sure piping is clean and free of obstructions, dirt or pipe joint compound.
WARNING: PRIOR TO LIGHTING, CHECK ALL JOINTS IN THE GAS SUPPLY LINE FOR LEAKS. USE SOAP
AND WATER SOLUTION. DO NOT USE AN OPEN FLAME.
TESTING THE GAS SUPPLY SYSTEM
The oven and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures greater than 1/2 psig (3.45 kPa).
The oven must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing the manual shutoff valve during pressure
testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/ 2 psig (3.45 kPa).
Gas Pressures and Orifices
Natural Gas
The burner orifices are sized to deliver the nameplate input rating (40,000 BTU/hr) at a gas manifold pressure
of 3.5" W.C. (0.8 kPa). The gas pressure regulator is integral to the gas solenoid valve and is factory set to supply
3.5" W.C. (0.8 kPa) as required for natural gas.
Propane Gas
The burner orifices are sized to deliver the nameplate input rating (40,000 BTU/hr) at a gas manifold pressure
of 10" W.C (2.5 kPa). The gas pressure regulator is integral to the gas solenoid valve and is factory set to supply
10" W.C. (2.5 kPa) as required for propane gas.
BURNER AIR SHUTTER ADJUSTMENTS
The GCO Series Oven burner has fixed, factory-adjusted air openings and requires no field adjustment.
FLUE CONNECTIONS
Ventilation requirements will vary with each installation and must comply with applicable portions of NFPA
Standard #96, "Vapor Removal from Cooking Equipment," and with local codes. Keep in mind that:
The oven should be located under a hood which has an adequate connection to an exhaust duct and extends
6" (152mm) beyond the oven sides.
Clearance above the oven flue should be adequate for the flue products to escape so that there is no
interference with the heat circulation in the ovens.
Ovens may use an optional down draft diverter flue method. This optional down draft diverter must be
purchased from the oven manufacturer; otherwise, the installation of any such device will void all oven
certifications and warranties.

LIGHTING THE GCO4S AND GCO4D/GCO6D OVENS
Turn manual Gas Valve ON. Turn Master Switch ON and turn Thermostat to its maximum setting. Both the ON
and HEAT lights should come on. If HEAT light is not on, make sure door is closed.
After 5 seconds, the spark ignition system will start and the solenoid valve will open, allowing gas to flow to the
burner for 7 seconds. This 5-second purge and 7-second ignition trial will repeat up to two more times if the
burner does not light within the first 7-second ignition trial. During this 5-second prepurge, the red NO IGNITION
light will be lit.
When the burner gas ignites, a slight "roar" will be heard. This "roar" is a normal condition of the power burner
and will become almost undetectable in the normal operating mode after warm-up. The NO IGNITION light will
go off when ignition occurs.
If the burner fails to light, the red NO IGNITION light will be lit and remain on. Turn Master Switch OFF. Turn
manual Gas Valve OFF. Wait for five minutes before repeating lighting sequence previously described.
If the burner does not light after three trials, turn off the manual Gas Valve and call a qualified servicer.
BEFORE FIRST USE
Before using the oven for the first time, it must be "burned in" to release any odors that might result from heating
the new surfaces in the chamber.
1. Using a clean damp cloth, wipe the inside of the oven, including the racks.
2. Close the oven doors, turn the Master Switch ON, turn the Thermostat to 300°F (149°C) and allow the
oven to cycle for 6 to 8 hours before turning the Master Switch OFF.
USING THE GCO4S AND GCO4D/GCO6D OVENS
Preheating
1. Turn Master Switch ON. Amber ON light will come on, indicating that power to oven is on.
2. Set Thermostat as desired. Refer to COOKING GUIDELINES for suggested temperatures and times for
various products.
3. Prepare product and place in suitable pans. When white HEAT light goes off, oven has reached desired
preheat temperature.
Cooking

ROAST AND HOLD OPERATION
Roast and Hold cooks the product in two stages. During First Stage Cooking, the oven temperature is regulated
by the Roast thermostat for the amount of time set on the Timer. After the lapsed time counts down to 00:00,
Second Stage Cooking begins. During Second Stage Cooking, the burners are off as the temperature in the oven
declines to the Hold Temperature. The doors should remain closed during Second Stage Cooking.
When the Hold temperature is reached, cooking is done. The Time Display counts up the Hold time and flashes
"Hold." Temperature in the oven will be maintained at the Hold temperature until the oven is turned off.

HOLDING
PROPER UTENSILS
The use of proper utensils can enhance oven operation. Medium and light weight pans allow the product to warm
faster. Roast meats in shallow pans deep enough to hold all juices yet allow free air circulation.
CONSERVING ENERGY
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Turn off unused equipment.
Adjust menu patterns and cooking/baking schedules for optimum equipment use.
Reduce thermostat settings in slack periods since gas equipment heats up and recovers quickly.
Preheat only to required cooking temperature for specific food — not higher.
Do not open the oven door unless absolutely necessary.
Keep area around the oven door clean and free of food particles.
Any obstruction that prevents the door from closing completely will adversely affect oven efficiency.
OPERATING HINTS
When using the convection oven for the first time with a particular food, check the degree of doneness
periodically before the suggested time has elapsed, to make sure the desired doneness is achieved.
Record your temperature and time settings for various products. The convection oven can provide consistent,
repeatable results.
The convection oven is faster than conventional deck-type ovens; temperature settings are lower and cook times
are shorter. Since recipes and foods are subject to many variations and tastes, the guidelines regarding Times
and Temperatures in this manual are SUGGESTIONS ONLY. Experiment with your food products to determine
the cooking temperatures and times that give you the best results.
CLEANING
WARNING: TURN OVEN OFF AND UNPLUG ELECTRICAL CORD BEFORE CLEANING.
Clean outside of the oven daily by wiping with a clean damp cloth.
Clean porcelain oven interior daily with soap or detergent and water. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry with a soft
clean cloth.
Optional Stainless Steel Oven Interior
Soap or detergent and water usually handle routine cleaning. Rinse thoroughly, dry with a soft clean cloth.
For burned-on foods and grease which resist simple soap and water cleaning, an abrasive cleanser (scouring
powder) mixed into a paste may be used. Apply with stainless steel wool or sponge, always rubbing with the
"grain."
This treatment is equally effective for "heat tint" (slightly darkened areas caused by oxidation). Again, remember
to rub in the direction of the polish lines. Rinse with clear water and dry with a soft cloth.

FOR BEST RESULTS
Product to be cooked should be centered on the oven rack, and the racks should be spaced evenly within the
oven cavity.
It is best not to rotate the product or open the doors during the cooking cycle.
Preheat oven to 50° (10°C) higher than desired cooking temperature. After the oven is loaded, close the door
and set thermostat to desired cooking temperature.
Make adjustments in the time, temperature and fan speed settings until the desired results are obtained. Adjust
only one setting at a time. For example, if the product is too dark on the outside and not done on the inside, it
is cooking too fast. Try reducing the temperature by 25°F (4°C).
These cooking charts will be helpful in arriving at time, temperature and fan speed settings for products commonly
cooked in convection ovens, but since each user’s perception of how a particular product should be finished
will be different, it may be necessary to make adjustments in the settings until the desired results are obtained.
When the desired results are obtained, make a note of the settings used for a particular recipe and product
load. For example, if the user typically bakes four 18" x 26" (45.7cm x 66cm) sheet cakes using 5 lb. (2.26 kg)
of batter for each cake, that would constitute a typical product load for that recipe. If the size of the load is
changed, it may affect the final results. If the user changes either the weight of the cakes being baked, or the
number of cakes being baked at a time, it may be necessary to make further adjustments in the time or
temperature settings to achieve the desired results.
