Making the Gas/Electric Connection
Electrical Supply Requirements
The correct voltage, frequency and amperage must be supplied to the appliance
from an isolated, grounded circuit which is protected by a properly sized circuit
breaker or time-delay fuse.
The cooktop must be connected to the power supply with copper wire only. The
use of aluminum wire may result in unsatisfactory connections. Flexible armored or
nonmetallic, sheathed copper cable (with a grounding wire) should be used to
supply electrical power to the junction box or receptacle.
The cooktop’s factory-equipped, three-prong grounding plug must be inserted into a
mating grounding-type receptacle in accordance with National Electric Code and
applicable state, municipal and local codes.
Be certain to locate the junction box or electrical outlet so the electrical supply may
be easily disconnected in the event that service becomes necessary. Also, provide
extra slack in the cable to allow the cooktop to be removed for servicing.
If the electrical supply circuit does not have a grounding-type receptacle, it is the
responsibility of the customer to have the existing receptacle changed by an
electrician to a properly grounded receptacle.
The power supply must be properly polarized. Reverse polarity will result in
continuous sparking of the electrodes, even after flame ignition. If the power
supply is not properly polarized, it is the responsibility of the customer to have
the polarity corrected.
If there is any doubt as to whether the wall receptacle is properly grounded or
polarized, have it checked by a qualified electrician prior to installing the
Do not plug the cooktop into Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) receptacles.
The cooktop spark ignition module can cause a GFCI to trip.
It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that the electrical connection for this

Do not use a hardening compound or caulking to permanently seal the cooktop into
place, as the unit must be readily removable for service. If such a hardening compound
is used, removal of the unit will be at the customer’s expense.
The maximum gas supply pressure to the regulator must not exceed 1/2 pound
per square inch.
Verify that the proper gas supply has been provided.
Do not apply excessive pressure when tightening connections and fittings.
Do not use plumber’s putty or Teflon tape on gas compression connections. It
can defeat the proper sealing of these fittings. Use plumber’s putty or Teflon tape
only on pipe thread fittings.
Turn all cooktop control valves to the “OFF” position, then turn on the gas
supply. Check all supply lines and connections for leaks using a soap and water
solution. Do not use a flame to check for leaks. After verifying that there are no
gas leaks, turn off the gas supply to the cooktop by turning the gas shut-off valve
to the off position. Leak testing of the appliance shall be conducted according to
the manufacturer’s instructions.
For LP gas installations, the LP gas tank must have its own high-pressure
regulator. This is in addition to the pressure regulator supplied with the cooktop.
Attach the gas pressure regulator (included with the cooktop) to cooktop pipe nipple
Install a gas shut-off valve (not included with the cooktop) in the main gas supply
line in an accessible location near the cooktop. Complete connection of the gas
supply to the cooktop by installing 1/2 inch flexible gas line (not included with the
cooktop) between the pressure regulator and the shut-off valve.
To prevent damage to the gas pressure regulator, install the regulator only after the
cooktop is mounted in its permanent position. Ensure that the arrow on the regulator
points in the direction of the gas flow towards the cooktop.
