A. Locate the Bracket Using the Template - (Bracket may
be located on either the left or right side of the range. Use
the information below to locate the bracket if template is
not available). Mark the floor or wall where left or right side
of the range will be located. If rear of range is against the
wall or no further than 1-1/4" from wall when installed, you
may use the wall or floor mount method. If molding is
installed and does not allow the bracket to fit flush against
the wall, remove molding or mount bracket to the floor. For
wall mount, locate the bracket by placing the back edge
of the template against the rear wall and the side edge of
template on the mark made referencing the side of the
range. Place bracket on top of template and mark location
of the screw holes in wall. If rear of range is further than
1-1/4" from the wall when installed, attach bracket to the
floor. For floor mount, locate the bracket by placing back
edge of the template where the rear of the range will be
located. Mark the location of the screw holes, shown in
template.

3/4" or 1/2" I.D.) supplied with the new flexible appliance
conduit for connection of the range.
B. Drill Pilot Holes and Fasten Bracket - Drill a 1/8" pilot
hole where screws are to be located. If bracket is to be
mounted to the wall, drill pilot hole at an approximate 20°
downward angle. If bracket is to be mounted to masonry
or ceramic floors, drill a 3/16" pilot hole 1-3/4" deep. The
screws provided may be used in wood or concrete material.
Use a 5/16" nut-driver or flat head screwdriver to secure the
bracket in place.
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 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 a 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 anti-tip
brackets must also be moved and installed with the range.
Instructions are provided for installation in wood or cement
fastened to either the floor or wall. When installed to the wall,
make sure that screws completely penetrate dry wall and are
secured in wood or metal. When fastening to the floor or wall,
be sure that screws do not penetrate electrical wiring or
plumbing.

2. Provide an adequate gas supply.
This unit is pre-set to operate on 4" natural gas manifold
pressure. A convertible pressure regulator is connected to the
manifold and MUST be connected in series with the gas supply
line. If the LP/Propane conversion kit has been used, follow
instructions provided with the kit for converting the pressure
regulator to LP/Propane use. The LP kit can be found on the
back side of the range (some models).
Care must be taken during installation of range not to obstruct
the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
Fig. 4b
For proper operation, the maximum inlet pressure to the
regulator should be no more than 14 inches of water column
pressure. The inlet pressure to the regulator must be at least
1 inch greater than regulator manifold pressure. Examples: If
regulator is set for natural gas 4 inch manifold pressure, inlet
pressure must be at least 5 inches; if regulator has been
converted for LP/Propane gas 10 inch manifold pressure, inlet
pressure must be at least 11 inches.
Leak testing of the appliance shall be conducted according to
the instructions in step 4g.
The gas supply line should be 1/2" or 3/4" I.D.

Do not use flame to check for gas leaks.
Checking Manifold Gas Pressure
Disconnect the range and its individual shut-off valve from the
gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that
system at test pressures greater than 14" of water column
pressure (approximately 1/2" psig).
Fig. 4d
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 14" of water column pressure
(approximately 1/2" 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 1/4," hold tubing down tight over
orifice. Turn burner valve on.
Fig. 4e
For an 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 the manifold pressure
is 4." (For LP/Propane Gas the manifold pressure is 10.")

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.
a.
To check for proper lighting, push in and turn a surface
burner knob counterclockwise to the LITE position. You
will hear the igniter sparking (See Fig. 1).
b.
The surface burner should light when gas is available to
the top burner. Purge air from supply lines by leaving knob
in the LITE position until burner ignites. Each burner
should light within four (4) seconds in normal operation
after air has been purged from supply lines.
c.
Visually check that burner has lit. Once the burner lights,
the control knob should be turned out of the LITE position.
d.
There are separate electrodes (igniters) for each burner.
Try each knob separately until all burner valves have been
checked.

Oven Adjustments
9. 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 an electric oven burner igniter. If your model is equipped
with a waist-high broil burner, it will also have an electric burner
igniter. 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 the
thermostat is turned ON before the flame appears at the oven
burner. When the oven reaches the dial setting, the glowing
igniter will go off. The burner flame will go "out" in 20 to 30
seconds after the igniter goes "OFF." To maintain any given
oven temperature, this cycle will continue as long as the dial
(or display) is set to operate.
