Instructions.
• Before installing the range in an area covered with
linoleum or any other synthetic floor covering, make
sure the floor covering can withstand heat at least 90°F
above room temperature without shrinking, warping or
discoloring. Do not install the range over carpeting unless
you place an insulating pad or sheet of ¼" (10,16cm)
thick plywood between the range and carpeting.
• Make sure the wall coverings around the range can
withstand the heat generated by the range.
• Do not obstruct the flow of combustion air at the oven
vent nor around the base or beneath the lower front
panel of the range. Avoid touching the vent openings
or nearby surfaces as they may become hot while the
oven is in operation. This range requires fresh air for
proper burner combustion.
• Air curtains or other overhead range hoods, which
operate by blowing a downward air flow onto a range,
shall not be used in conjunction with gas ranges other
than when the hood and range have been designed,
tested and listed by an independent test laboratory for
use in combination with each other.
Special instructions for appliances installed in

Normal Installation Steps
1 Anti-tip Bracket Installation
Instructions Important Safety Warning
To reduce the risk of tipping of the range, the range must
be secured to the floor by the properly installed anti-tip
bracket and screws packed with the range. Failure to
install the anti-tip bracket will allow the range to tip over if
excessive weight is placed on an open door or if child climbs
upon it. Serious injury might result from spilled hot liquids
or from the range itself.
If range is ever moved to a different location, the antitip brackets must also be moved and installed with the
range.
Instructions are provided for installation in wood or
cement floor. When fastening to floor, be sure that
screws do not penetrate electrical wiring or plumbing.

2 Provide an adequate Gas Supply
When shipped from the factory, this unit is
designed to operate on 4" (10,16cm) water column
(1.0 kPa) Natural gas manifold pressure. A convertible
pressure regulator is connected to the range manifold
and MUST be connected in series with the gas supply
line. If LP/Propane conversion kit has been used,
follow instructions provided with the kit for converting
the pressure regulator to LP/Propane use.
Care must be taken during installation of range not to
obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
For proper operation, the maximum inlet pressure to
the regulator should be no more than 14" (35,56cm)
of water column pressure (3.5 kPa). The inlet
pressure to the regulator must be at least 1" (.25
kPa) greater than the regulator manifold pressure
setting. Examples: If regulator is set for natural gas 4"
(10,16cm) manifold pressure, inlet pressure must be at
least 5" (12.60cm); if regulator has been converted for
LP/Propane gas 10" (25,4cm) manifold pressure, inlet
pressure must be at least 11" (27,9cm).

pinching or blocking the unit when you will push it
back in its final position.
H. Check for leaks. Turn the gas supply on to the range
and use a liquid leak detector (or soap and water)
at all joints and conduits to check for leaks in the
system.
Checking Manifold Gas Pressure
Disconnect this range and its individual manual shutoff
valve from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures greater
than 14" water column pressure (approximately ½"
psig).
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply
piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff
valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply
piping system at test pressures equal to or less than
14" water column pressure (approximately ½" psig).
If it should be necessary to check the manifold gas
pressure, connect manometer (water gauge) or
other pressure device to the top burner right rear
orifice. Using a rubber hose with inside diameter of
approximately ¼" hold tubing down tight over orifice.
Turn burner valve on.
For accurate pressure check have at least two (2)
other top burners burning. Be sure the gas supply
(inlet) pressure is at least one inch above specified
range manifold pressure. The gas supply pressure
should never be over 14" water column. When
properly adjusted for Natural Gas manifold pressure is
4" (For LP/Propane Gas the manifold pressure is 10")
Do not use a flame to check for gas
leaks.

9 Operation of Oven Burners and Oven
Adjustments
Electric Ignition Burners
Operation of electric igniters should be checked after
range and supply line connectors have been carefully
checked for leaks, and range has been connected to
electric power.
The oven burner is equipped with an electric control
system as well as electric oven and broil burner igniters.
These control systems require no adjustment. When the
oven is set to operate, current will flow to the igniter. It will
"glow" similar to a light bulb. When the igniter has reached
a temperature sufficient to ignite gas, the electrically
controlled oven valve will open and flame will appear at the
oven burner. There is a time lapse from 30 to 60 seconds
after thermostat is turned ON before the flame appears
at the oven burner. When the oven reaches the display
setting, the glowing igniter will go off. The burner flame
will go "out" in 20 to 30 seconds after igniter goes "OFF".
To maintain any given oven temperature, this cycle will
continue as long as the display is set to operate.
After removing all packing materials and literature from
the oven:
A.Set the lower oven to BAKE at 300°F. See Use & Care
Guide for operating instructions.
B.Within 60 seconds the oven burner should ignite.
Check for proper flame, and allow the burners to
cycle once. Reset controls to off.
C.Repeat A and B with the upper oven.
D.Set the upper oven to broil. See Use and Care Guide
for operating instructions.
E. Within 60 seconds the broil burner should ignite.
Check for proper flame. Reset controls to off.
