GAS PRESSURE REGULATOR A gas regulator is shipped packaged separately with this unit in the oven cavity area. This regulator must be installed by an authorized service person before the unit is placed into operation. See unit data plate, riveted inside the lower front kick panel, for pressure regulator setting information. 1. Locate either a 3/4" or 1" (19 or 25 mm) NPT gas connection pipe protruding through the back of the unit. 2. Cover the pipe threads with pipe joint compound resistant to propane gases. 3. Screw the regulator onto the pipe hand tight with flow direction arrow pointing towards the back of the unit and the regulator adjustment in the up right position. 4. Using a pipe wrench, tighten the regulator securely in the upright position. Note: The regulator is preset and should not require any additional adjustments. The pressure regulator must be mounted horizontally to ensure the proper preset outlet pressure. If mounted in any other direction, the outlet pressure must be rechecked and possibly reset. A leak limiter is supplied with every regulator to allow excess gas pressure to escape. Do not obstruct the limiter or the gas regulator, as obstruction may cause the regulator to malfunction. —8— GAS CONNECTIONS CAUTION: All gas supply connections and any pipe joint compound used must be resistant to the action of propane gases. 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. After piping has been checked for leaks, all piping receiving gas should be fully purged to remove air. TESTING THE GAS SUPPLY SYSTEM When test pressures exceed 1/2 psig (3.45 kPa), the range and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system. When test pressures are 1/2 psig (3.45 kPa) or less, the range must be isolated from the gas supply system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve. FLUE CONNECTIONS DO NOT obstruct the flow of flue gases from the flue located on the rear of the range. It is recommended that the flue gases be ventilated to the outside of the building through a ventilation system installed by qualified personnel. From the termination of the flue to the filters of the hood venting system, a minimum clearance of 18" (457 mm) must be maintained. Information on the construction and installation of ventilating hoods may be obtained from the standard for "Vapor Removal from Cooking Equipment," NFPA No. 96 (latest edition), available from the National Fire Protection Association, Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269. —9— ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS (CONVECTION OVEN ONLY) WARNING: ELECTRICAL AND GROUNDING CONNECTIONS MUST COMPLY WITH THE APPLICABLE PORTIONS OF THE NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE AND/OR OTHER LOCAL ELECTRICAL CODES. WARNING: DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL POWER TO THE MACHINE AND FOLLOW LOCKOUT / TAGOUT PROCEDURES. WARNING: APPLIANCES EQUIPPED WITH A FLEXIBLE ELECTRIC SUPPLY CORD ARE PROVIDED WITH A THREE-PRONG GROUNDING PLUG. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT THIS PLUG BE CONNECTED INTO A PROPERLY GROUNDED THREE-PRONG RECEPTACLE. IF THE RECEPTACLE IS NOT THE PROPER GROUNDING TYPE, CONTACT AN ELECTRICIAN. DO NOT REMOVE THE GROUNDING PRONG FROM THIS PLUG. The range is designed for 120 volt power supply or optional 240 volt single phase, 15 amp, 50/60 Hz power supply. All 120 volt ranges are supplied with a flexible electric supply cord and plug and must be plugged into the proper receptacle before turning on gas. If the appliance is not equipped with a grounding plug and electric supply is needed, ground the appliance by using the ground lug provided. All 240 volt electric systems are manufactured for hard wire installation connections. (Refer to the wiring diagram shipped with this unit in instructional material packet.) An electrical diagram is attached to the back near the motor mounting area. Do not connect the range to electrical supply until after gas connections have been made. — 10 — OPERATION WARNING: THE APPLIANCE AND ITS PARTS ARE HOT. USE CARE WHEN OPERATING, CLEANING OR SERVICING THE APPLIANCE. CONTROLS Range Top Burner Valve — Allows gas to flow to the top burners. To open valve, turn knob counterclockwise. To close valve, turn knob clockwise. Yellow Gas Shut-off Valve — Allows gas to flow to the range top. To open valve, turn knob counterclockwise. To close valve, turn knob clockwise. Thermostat / Safety Valve — Regulates the oven temperature and pilot safety thermostat. The thermostat temperature range is from LOW at approximately 300°F (149°C) to HI at approximately 550°F (288°C). Turn thermostat clockwise to increase temperature and counterclockwise to decrease temperature. NOTE: In P position, pilot remains on. In OFF position, pilot is extinguished. During shut down and operation, align the OFF and P positions (as required) of the oven knob with the tick mark (* or V) indicator on the label or sheet metal located above the knob. This indicator should also be used as the temperature set mark. Fan Switch — Turns fan on and off. (Convection Ovens Only - Fan turns ON when door is closed. Fan turns OFF when door is opened) BEFORE FIRST USE Griddles Griddle tops are shipped with a protective coating of grease. Remove this film only when the griddle plate is being cleaned prior to its first cooking use. Use a non-corrosive, grease dissolving commercial cleaner, following manufacturer's directions. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry with a soft clean cloth. Clean all accessories. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry. Caution: This griddle plate is steel, but the surface is soft and can be scored or dented by careless use of spatulas or scrappers. Be careful not to dent , scratch or gouge the plate. Do not try to knock off loose food that may be on the spatula by tapping the corner edge of the spatula on the griddle surface. A new griddle surface must be seasoned to do a good cooking job. The metal surface of the griddle is porous. Food tends to get trapped in these pores and stick. It is important to season the griddle with cooking oil before using the griddle. Seasoning will give the griddle surface a slick, hard finish from which food will easily release. Season the griddle top plate at low setting. Pour one ounce of cooking oil onto the plate per square foot of the griddle surface. With an insulated cloth, spread the oil over the entire griddle surface. Wipe off any excess oil. Repeat this procedure 2 to 3 times until the griddle has a slick looking surface. — 11 — Ovens New ovens require a burn off period to break in the oven and eliminate unappetizing odors from penetrating the food product. These odors are typically from curing of the porcelain enamel oven cavity parts. Turn on unit gas and set the thermostat to 475°F (246°C). Allow the oven to operate at this temperature for 30 to 45 minutes. NOTE: Under normal operation, the backsplasher and shelf will become hot to touch. LIGHTING AND SHUTTING DOWN PILOTS TOP SECTIONS Open Top, Griddle Top, Broiler and Cheesemelter Pilots 1. Turn the gas supply valve and yellow front gas shut off valve to the ON position. 2. Light all standing pilots. Pilot access can be reached through the slotted opening near each burner valve knob. 3. Turn the burner valve ON to the desired heat. 4.

For extended shut down, push the power switch to OFF(I), depress and turn the oven control knob to the OFF position. Note: The pilot is accessible for lighting through the lower burner box area. Before proceeding with the lighting instruction drop kick panel down. Use the rectangular opening in burner box to gain access to the pilot for lighting. OPERATING SUGGESTIONS Open-Top Ranges Open-top ranges are quickly lighted and require no preheating time. Light only as many burners as needed. Open top burners have a wide low to high burner flame adjustment range. This allows for better simmering performance at the lowest possible stabilized setting. When simmering, turn the burner valve knob down until you reach the optimum lowest burner flame setting to maintain the desired simmer point. Griddle Top Ranges Heat top thoroughly before using. The top can be kept hot with burners turned partially down. During off periods, turn the burners down or heat only half the top. Standard Oven Cooking Allow time to preheat ovens before using (25 minutes to 400°F [204°C]). The oven thermostat regulates temperature from a low setting at approximately 300°F (149°C) to high setting at approximately 550°F (288°C). If properly used, the automatic temperature control will cut gas and food costs. Do not turn on maximum heat all the time. Turn thermostat down to LOW when oven is idling, or turn the oven control to "P" when not in use. This oven gives you double capacity because you can do pan work on both shelves. If you are cooking high roasts, the entire height of the oven can be utilized by removing a rack(s) and placing roast pan directly on the insulated oven bottom. Moderate oven temperatures will produce better food, reduce shrinkage and keep maintenance costs down. Using a low temperature for roasting (recommended 325°F [162°C] or lower) will reduce meat costs by reducing shrinkage. A pan of water (approximately 12" x 20" x 1" [305 mm x 508 mm x 25.4 mm]) may be placed in the oven bottom. This water supplies humidity to reduce shrinkage. If necessary, add water during roasting. — 13 — Convection Oven Cooking If you have a convection oven, reduce your normal recipe temperature by 25°F (-3°C). Cooking time in a convection oven will vary slightly from your normal recipe time. Cooking starts immediately in the convection oven. Yeast breads do not usually rise as much in the convection oven. It is, therefore, usually necessary to allow fuller proof, two and one half to three times increase in volume for the best results. When baking pies in your convection oven, put three or four pies on an 18" x 26" (457 mm x 660 mm) sheet or bun pan. This procedure helps the bottom crust to bake, makes handling easier and reduces the possibility of boil over, which would spoil the appearance of the pies on the lower racks. Pies and cobblers, fruit, custard and pumpkin pies in tins should be placed on 18" x 26" x 1" (457 mm x 660 mm x 25.4 mm) pans for baking. LOADING AND UNLOADING THE OVEN Open the door and load as quickly as practical to conserve heat. Take care to avoid spilling liquids while loading. Close the door and refer to recipe for cooking time. Provide adequate space for product unloading. Rapid unloading will conserve heat and ensure proper preheating conditions for the next load, if applicable. NOTE: With the thermostat in the "P" position, the oven can be used as a plate warmer. The oven pilot will maintain a temperature in the oven cavity of about 110°F (43°C). CLEANING WARNING: DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL POWER TO THE MACHINE AND FOLLOW LOCKOUT / TAGOUT PROCEDURES. WARNING: SHUT OFF THE GAS BEFORE CLEANING THE APPLIANCE. WARNING: THE APPLIANCE AND IT'S PARTS ARE HOT. BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN OPERATING, CLEANING OR SERVICING THE APPLIANCE. Exterior surfaces may be cleaned using soft cloth and mild detergent. Do not use Dawn ® dish detergent to clean the exterior or interior components of the range. Do not use scouring powder. It is extremely difficult to remove completely. It can build up accumulations that will damage the oven. Vulcan equipment is strongly constructed and is designed to give you long, satisfactory service at low cost, provided you give it proper care. Frequent cleaning and occasional adjusting should reward you with low operating and maintenance costs and faster, better service. This range has been designed with sanitation and easy cleaning ability in mind. The entire top section of this range can be disassembled in approximately 60 seconds. Complete cleaning of the entire range can be accomplished in approximately 5 to 10 minutes. For complete cleaning instructions, refer to the Daily Cleaning section in this manual. For light cleaning instructions, refer to Clean After Each Use section in this manual. For griddle and broiler cleaning instructions, refer to Griddle or Broiler/Griddle Cleaning After Each Use and Daily Cleaning sections in this manual. — 14 — CLEAN AFTER EACH USE Open Top, Oven and Exterior 1. Turn the yellow gas valve handle located on the front of the range to the OFF position (Fig. 9). 2. While the range top is still warm, use a soft cloth and solution of warm water with mild soap to wipe any excess grease and debris from the front top surface, backsplasher and top grates. Be sure to rinse and dry all component parts thoroughly before cooking is resumed. Fig. 9 Fig. 10 NOTE: After cooling, top grates may be lifted by hand to access the burner heads (Fig. 10). Burned on foods and grease are unsightly and will slow down the cooking speed as the debris blocks the flow of heat from the burner(s). When reinstalling the top grates, make sure the grate with the upward flange is placed in the rear. 3. Once the range has cooled, it is recommended that any spill over in the oven cavity or door area be wiped out using a soft cloth and solution of warm water and mild soap. During down times, the exterior of the range should be wiped off in the same manner. 4. To relight the top burners after cleaning, follow the LIGHTING AND SHUTTING DOWN PILOTS, TOP SECTIONS instructions in this manual. DAILY CLEANING This range has been designed with sanitation and easy cleaning ability in mind. The entire top section of this range can be disassembled in approximately 60 seconds. Complete cleaning of the entire range can be accomplished in approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Although these cleaning instructions are suggested minimum daily procedure, cleaning can be performed more often during the course of daily use. For quick and easy cleaning, follow the instructions below. If time is limited, do not place range parts in a dishwasher. Wipe them off with a solution of warm water and mild soap, then rinse thoroughly before reinstalling the parts to the range. To remove discoloration, use a nonabrasive cleaner. Always rub with the grain of the metal. Stainless steel and chrome areas of the range can be polished by using a soft dry cloth. If needed, add stainless steel polish to the soft cloth. — 15 — Open Top 1. After cooling the range, remove and clean all top grates as described under Clean After Each Use or place the grates in a commercial dishwasher (Fig. 9, 10 and 11). Fig. 11 Fig. 12 2. Remove cross support bars by lifting them straight up and off the front and rear supports. Clean the cross supports with soap and warm water or place them in a commercial dishwasher. The front and rear areas may be wiped off with soap and warm water (Fig. 12 and 13). Fig. 13 Fig. 14 3. After cooling, remove the top rings from the burner heads (Fig. 14). These can be soaked in warm water with mild soap or placed in a commercial dishwasher for cleaning. Be sure to dry thoroughly before reinstalling. A quick method for cleaning is to remove the rings, turn ON the top burner, then lay the rings flip side down on the burner head for several minutes. This is a burn off cleaning process that will remove most debris from the burner ring and allow you to resume cooking quickly. NOTE: During burn off cleaning process, the rings become HOT. Use care when handling. — 16 — 4. To remove the Venturi/Burner assembly from the range, slightly lift up the rear of the assembly and pull it back towards the splasher area while lifting the assembly off the burner valve quick disconnect. Repeat step 4 until all the burner section assemblies are removed (Fig. 15, 16 and 17). Fig. 15 Fig. 16 NOTE: Burner/Venturi assembly may be cleaned using a nylon brush to remove crusty debris. The assembly may also be placed into a commercial dishwasher for cleaning. It is recommended that the assembly be left standing to air dry and the pilot tubing be blown out with air before reinstalling. Failure to allow the venturi to thoroughly dry will cause rusting and compromise the range operation. The venturi air shutter adjustment is important to the function of the range open top burner(s). The air shutter opening must be kept clean. The shutter is locked into place by use of a single screw. Be careful not to disturb the air shutter while cleaning. It is also recommended that before reinstalling, the entire outside areas of the Burner/Venturi assembly be coated with a spray on cooking oil to eliminate rusting. These parts are cast iron and will rust if not properly seasoned. Fig. 17 Fig. 18 5. Clean the entire 12 quart basin area with warm water, mild soap and a soft cloth. Stubborn soils may be removed using a nylon scratch pad and mild detergent. Rinse and dry all areas thoroughly (Fig. 18). — 17 — STANDARD OVEN CLEANING AFTER EACH USE AND DAILY Once the oven has cooled, wipe off any spill over in the oven cavity or door assembly immediately. Use a solution of warm water and mild soap or place the removable oven parts into a commercial dishwasher. Standard oven racks, right, left and bottom oven liners are easily removed for cleaning. 1. After the oven has cooled, open the oven door and remove the oven rack (Fig. 19). 2. Lift up on the oven bottom and pull the bottom straight out of the oven cavity (Fig. 20). 3. Lift up on the right and left side liners (one at a time), disengaging the hanger flange of the liner from the top ledge inside the oven cavity. Pull the side liners straight out of the oven cavity (Fig. 21 and 22). Fig. 19 Fig. 20 Fig. 21 Fig. 22 NOTE: Stubborn soil marks such as burned on grease may be removed using a standard oven cleaner. Follow cleaner product directions. 4. Once all oven parts are clean and dry, reinstall by reversing steps 1 through 3. NOTE: Liners are different from left to right. There is a hanger flange at the top of each liner. Reinstall liners so that the rectangular opening is in front and the rack guides are facing into the oven cavity. If the side liners hanger flange is not engaging easily, or the oven door is not closing completely, the liners may have been reinstalled on the wrong sides. This is a common error. Simply remove the oven bottom liner and reverse the side liners. Reinstall the oven bottom liner and check to ensure the oven door is closing completely. — 18 — CONVECTION OVEN CLEANING AFTER EACH USE AND DAILY This oven section is a permanent one piece heat sealed construction and can not be disassembled for cleaning, with the exception of removing the oven rack(s). Once the oven cavity is cool, remove the rack(s) as needed. Wipe off any spill over in the oven cavity or onto the oven door assembly immediately using a solution of warm water and mild soap. Rinse thoroughly and dry before placing the oven back into operation. NOTE: Stubborn soil marks such as burned on grease may be removed using a standard oven cleaner. Follow cleaner product directions. GRIDDLE TOP CAUTION: When scraping off heavy deposits of grease or oil from griddle equipment, use only approved griddle scrapers. Particles of ordinary steel may become embedded in or lodge on the surface of the griddle plate. These particles will rust, causing unsightly stains and possible contamination of food. Empty grease daily or as needed. Clean griddle top regularly. KEEP GRIDDLE PLATE SURFACE CLEAN. To produce evenly cooked, browned products, keep griddle free of carbonized grease. Carbonized grease on the surface hinders the transfer of heat from the griddle surface to food. This results in spotty browning and loss of cooking efficiency, and carbonized grease tends to stick to the griddle foods, giving them a highly unsatisfactory and unappetizing appearance. To keep the griddle clean, follow these simple instructions: After Each Use Clean griddle with a Scotch Bright pad or flexible spatula. Daily 1. Thoroughly clean backsplash, sides and front. Remove grease drawer, empty it and wash it out in the same manner as any ordinary cooking utensil. 2. Clean griddle surface thoroughly. Use a griddle stone, griddle screen or Scotch Bright pad on the surface. While the griddle surface is still warm, using a griddle stone or screen, clean the griddle surface by rubbing left to right and front to back. A nylon pad may be used on a warm griddle surfaces but are not recommended for hot surfaces as this may cause a pad to melt. A detergent may be used on the plate surface to help clean it, but you must ensure the detergent is thoroughly removed. 3. Clean stainless surfaces with a damp cloth and polish with a soft dry cloth. To remove discolorations, use a nonabrasive cleaner. 4. Reseason griddle as explained under Before First Use in this manual. — 19 — BROILERS / GRIDDLE Empty the broiler grease pan/trough daily or as often as necessary. CAUTION: Remove the grease pan/trough slowly and be careful of liquid wave action. It is recommended that the grease pan/trough be emptied whenever it is 3/4 filled. The drip shield, grids and grease pan/trough should be washed with a mild grease-dissolving solution. Some chefs scrape the grid with a three-cornered metal scraper. Scrub the broiler chamber and body front frequently and you will have less smoking. For more extensive griddle top cleaning instructions, refer to Griddle Top Cleaning section in this manual. EXTERIOR CLEANING Daily Clean exterior finish with a mild solution of soap or grease-dissolving cleaner. STAINLESS STEEL Here are a few simple cleaning procedures that have been found effective for keeping stainless steel equipment clean, sparkling and bright. General Cleaning Use ordinary soap or detergent and water for routine cleaning of stainless steel. To prevent water spots and streaks, rinse thoroughly with warm water and wipe dry with a soft clean cloth. The addition of a rinsing agent will also help prevent spotting. Fingerprints Fingerprints are sometimes a problem on highly polished surfaces of stainless steel. They can be minimized by applying a cleaner that will leave a thin oily or waxy film. To use these cleaners, simply wipe on and remove excess with a soft dry cloth. After using, subsequent fingerprints will usually disappear when wiped lightly with a soft cloth or with a cloth containing a little of the cleaner. If the surface is especially dirty to start, wash first with soap or detergent and water. Burned-On Foods and Grease Soaking with hot soapy water will help greatly to remove burned-on foods and grease. Heat Tint Straw-colored or slightly darkened areas may appear on stainless steel in and around ovens and ranges where temperatures reach 500°F (260°C) or more. This "heat tint" is caused by a slight oxidation of the stainless steel and is not harmful. To control or minimize this condition, never use more heat than is absolutely necessary. Commercial heat tint remover products may be used. — 20 — Precautions When scraping off heavy deposits of grease or oil from stainless steel equipment, never use ordinary steel scrapers. Particles of ordinary steel may become embedded in, or lodge on, the surface of the stainless steel. These will rust, causing unsightly stains and possible contamination of food. Where it is necessary to scrape, use stainless steel, wood, plastic or rubber tools.
