For example, benzene is a chemical which is
part of the gas supplied to the cooking
product. It is consumed in the flame during
combustion. However, exposure to a small
amount of benzene is possible if a gas leak
occurs. Formaldehyde and soot are byproducts of incomplete combustion.
Properly adjusted burners with a bluish
rather than yellow flame minimize
incomplete combustion.

This gas supply (service) line must be the same size or greater than the inlet line of the appliance. This unit uses a 1/2”
(1.27 cm) I.D. NPT (Sch40) inlet. Sealant on all pipe joints must be resistive to LP gas.
1. Manual Shut-Off Valve:
This installer-supplied valve must be installed in the gas service line ahead of the appliance and regulator in the gas
stream and in a position where it can be reached quickly in the event of an emergency. In Massachusetts: A “T”
handle type manual valve must be installed in the gas supply to the appliance.
2. Pressure Regulator
(a) 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 appliance, because a regulator is built into each unit at the factory. Under no condition
should you bypass this built-in regulator!
(b) 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 is started on the unit. (Gas
conversions are the responsibility of the dealer or end user.)
(c) This unit can be used with Natural gas or LP/Propane. It is shipped from the factory adjusted for use with
natural gas. The orifice hoods must be screwed snug when LP/Propane is used. (See LP/Propane conversion.)
(d) Manifold pressure should be checked with a manometer, natural gas requires 5.0” W.C.P. and LP gas requires
10” W.C.P. Incoming line pressure upstream from the regulator must be 1” W.C.P. higher than the manifold
pressure in order to check the regulator. The regulator used on this unit can withstand a maximum input
pressure of 1/2 PSI (14.0” W.C.P.). If the line pressure is in excess of that amount, a step-down regulator will be
required.
(e) The appliance, its individual shut-off valve, and pressure regulator must be disconnected from the gas supply
piping system during any pressure testing of that system at pressures in excess of 1/2 PSIG (3.5kPa).
(f) The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shut-off valve
during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 PSIG
(3.5kPa).
3. Flexible Connections:
(a) If the unit is to be installed with flexible couplings and/or quick-disconnect fittings, the installer must use a
heavy-duty, AGA design-certified commercial flexible connector of at least 1/2” I.D. NPT (with suitable strain
reliefs) in compliance with ANSI Z21.41 and Z21.69.
(b) 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.
(c) In Massachusetts: This appliance must be installed with a 36” (3-foot) long flexible gas connector.
4. Before placing the unit into operation, always check for gas leaks with a soapy water solution or other acceptable
method. DO NOT USE AN OPEN FLAME TO CHECK FOR LEAKS!!! Leak testing of the appliance shall be
conducted according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Final Preparation
1. Some stainless steel parts may have a plastic protective wrap which must be removed. The interior of the oven
should be washed thoroughly with hot, soapy water to remove film residues and any installation dust or debris
before being used for food preparation, then rinsed and wiped dry. Solutions stronger than soap and water are
rarely needed.
2. All stainless steel body parts should be wiped with hot, soapy water and with a liquid cleaner designed for this
material. If buildup occurs, do not use steel wool, abrasive cloths, cleaners, or powders! If it is necessary to scrape
stainless steel to remove encrusted materials, soak with hot, wet cloths to loosen the material, then use a wood or
nylon scraper. Do not use a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape stainless steel! Scratches are
almost impossible to remove.
