Call 1.800.GE.CARES (1.800.432.2737) or visit www.GEAppliances.com IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS This product must be installed by a licensed plumber or gas fitter. When using ball type gas shut-off valves, they shall be the T-handle type. A flexible gas connector, when used, must not exceed 3 feet. WARNING FIRE OR EXPLOSION HAZARD When installing a gas appliance the use of old flexible connectors can cause gas leaks and personal injury. Always use a NEW flexible connector. If the information in this manual is not followed exactly, a fire or explosion may result causing property damage, personal injury or death. Leak testing of the appliance shall be conducted according to the manufacturer instructions. Installation must be performed by a qualified installer. Read these instructions completely and carefully. Installation of this range must conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/ NFPA.54, latest edition. In Canada, installation must conform with the current Natural Gas Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.1 or the current Propane Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.2, and with local codes where applicable. This range has been design-certified by CSA International according to ANSI Z21.1, latest edition and Canadian Gas Association according to CAN/ CGA-1.1 latest edition. The range must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, in accordance with the National Electrical Code (ANSI/NFPA 70, latest edition). In Canada, electrical grounding must be in accordance with the current CSA C22.1 Canadian Electrical Code Part 1 and/or local codes. See Electrical Connections in this section. Do not install this product with an air curtain hood or other range hood that operates by blowing air down on the cooktop. This airflow may interfere with operation of the gas burners resulting in fire or explosion hazard. Tip-Over Hazard • A child or adult can tip the range and be killed. • Install the anti-tip bracket to the wall or floor. • Engage the range to the anti-tip bracket by sliding the range back such that the foot is engaged. • Re-engage the anti-tip bracket if the range is moved. • Failure to do so can result in death or serious burns to children or adults. If you did not receive an anti-tip bracket with your purchase, call 1.800.626.8774 to receive one at no cost. (In Canada, call 1.800.561.3344.) For installation instructions of the bracket, visit: www.GEAppliances.com. (In Canada, www.GEAppliances.ca.) Anti-Tip Bracket Kit Included WARNING Fire Hazard: Do not use a flame to check for gas leaks. WARNING Explosion Hazard: Do not exceed 25 ft-lbs of torque when making gas line connections. Overtightening may crack the pressure regulator resulting in fire or explosion hazard. Gas Pressure Regulator You must use the gas pressure regulator supplied with this range. For proper operations the inlet pressure to the regulator should be as follows: A. Install a manual shut-off valve in the gas line in an easily accessed location outside of the range. Make sure everyone operating the range knows where and how to shut off the gas supply to the range. B. Install male 1/2” flare union adapter to the 1/2” NPT internal thread at inlet of regulator. Use a backup wrench on the regulator fitting to avoid damage. C. Install male 1/2” or 3/4” flare union adapter to the NPT internal thread of the manual shut-off valve, taking care to back-up the shut-off valve to keep it from turning. D. Connect flexible metal appliance connector to the adapter on the range. Position range to permit connection at the shut-off valve. LP Gas: Minimum pressure: 11” of Water Column Maximum pressure: 13” of Water Column E. When all connections have been made, make sure all range controls are in the off position and turn on the main gas supply valve. Use a liquid leak detector at all joints and connections to check for leaks in the system. Shut off the main gas supply valve before disconnecting the old range and leave it off until the new hook-up has been completed. Don’t forget to relight the pilot on other gas appliances when you turn the gas back on. Because hard piping restricts movement of the range, the use of a CSA Internationalcertified flexible metal appliance connector is recommended unless local codes require a hardpiped connection. If the hard piping method is used, you must carefully align the pipe; the range cannot be moved after the connection is made. When using pressures greater than 1/2 psig to pressure test the gas supply system of the residence, disconnect the range and individual shut-off valve from the gas supply piping. When using pressures of 1/2 psig or less to pressure test the gas supply system, simply isolate the range from the gas supply system by closing the individual shut-off valve. When checking for proper operation of the regulator, the inlet pressure must be at least 1” greater than the operating (manifold) pressure as given on rating label of product. Drill, awl or nail Flexible metal appliance connector (1/2” I.D.). A 5-foot length is recommended for ease of installation but other lengths are acceptable. Never use an old connector when installing a new range. Flare union adapter for connection to gas supply line (3/4” or 1/2” NPT x 1/2” I.D.) Allow 30” (76.2 cm) minimum clearance between burners and bottom of unprotected wood or metal cabinet, or allow a 24” (61 cm) minimum when bottom of wood or metal cabinet is protected by no less than 1/4” (6.4 mm) thick flame-retardant millboard covered with no less Gas Flow into Range BEFORE YOU BEGIN ,03257$17³ Save these instructions for Elbow Pressure regulator Nipple Flex connector (6 ft. max.)
