Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Failure to follow these instructions can
result in death, fire, or electrical shock.
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is
used, it is recommended that a qualified
electrician determine that the ground path is
adequate.
Do Not ground to a gas pipe.
Check with a qualified electrician if you are not
sure range is properly grounded.
A 120-volt, 60-Hz, AC-only, 10-ampere, fused
electrical supply is required. A time-delay fuse or
circuit breaker is recommended. It is
recommended that a separate circuit serving
only this appliance be provided.
Electronic ignition systems operate within wide
voltage limits, but proper grounding and polarity
are necessary. In addition to checking that the
outlet is correctly grounded, the outlet must be
checked by a qualified electrician to see if it is
wired with correct polarity.
A wiring diagram is included on the back of
the range.
Recommended
ground method
For your personal safety, this range must be
grounded. This range is manufactured with a
power supply cord having a 3-prong ground
plug. To minimize possible shock hazard, the
cord must be plugged into a mating, 3-prong,
ground-type outlet, grounded in accordance with
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 — latest
edition* and all local codes and ordinances.
If a mating outlet is not available, it is the
responsibility and obligation of the customer to
have a properly grounded, 3-prong outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.

Gas supply requirements
WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Use a new AGA or CGA approved gas
supply line.
Install a shut-off valve.
Securely tighten all gas connections.
If connected to LP, have a qualified person
make sure gas pressure does not exceed
14" water column. Examples of a qualified
person include licensed heating personnel,
authorized gas company personnel, and
authorized service personnel.
Failure to do so can result in death,
explosion, or fire.
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
This installation must conform with all local
codes and ordinances. In the absence of local
codes, installation must conform with American
National Standard, National Fuel Gas Code ANSI
Z223.1 — latest edition**.
Input ratings shown on the model/serial rating
plate are for elevations up to 2,000 feet. For
assistance when installing the range at higher
elevations, contact your local service company.
Type of gas: This range is design-certified by the
American Gas Association (A.G.A.) for use with
Natural gas or, after proper conversion, for use
with L. P. gas. This range is factory set for use
with Natural gas. Gas conversion instructions
are provided on pages 7-8. The model/serial
rating plate located on the frame behind the
storage drawer or broiler drawer has information
on the type of gas that can be used. If the type
of gas listed does not agree with the type of gas
available, check with the local gas supplier.
Conversion must be done by a qualified service
technician.
Page 3
Gas supply line: Provide a gas supply line of 3/4"
rigid pipe to the range location. With L.P. gas,
piping or tubing size can be 1/2" minimum. A
smaller size pipe on longer runs may result in
insufficient gas supply. Usually, L.P. gas
suppliers determine the size and materials used
in the system.
Pipe-joint compounds made for use with L.P. gas
must be used on pipe threads only.
Flexible metal appliance connector: If local codes
permit, a new A.G.A. design-certified,
1/2" or 3/4" I.D., flexible metal appliance
connector is recommended for connecting range
to the gas supply line. A 1/2" male pipe thread
nipple is needed for connection to pressure
regulator female pipe threads. Do Not kink or
damage the flexible metal tubing when moving
the range.
Rigid pipe connection: Requires a
combination of pipe fittings to obtain
an in-line connection to the range. All
strains must be removed from the
supply and fuel lines so range will
be level and in line.
manual shutoff valve
“open” position
to range
gas supply
Shutoff valve: The supply line must be equipped
with a manual shutoff valve. This valve should
be located in the same room as the range and
should be in a location that allows ease of
opening and closing. The valve is for turning on
or shutting off gas to the range. Do Not block
access to shutoff valve.
Pressure regulator: The gas pressure regulator
supplied with this range must be used. The inlet
pressure to the regulator should be as follows
for proper operation:
NATURAL GAS:
Minimum pressure: 5 inches WCP
Maximum pressure: 14 inches WCP
L.P. GAS:
Minimum pressure: 11 inches WCP
Maximum pressure: 14 inches WCP
Contact your local gas supplier if you are not
sure about the inlet pressure.
Line pressure testing above 1/2 psi gauge
(14" WCP) — The range and its individual
manual shutoff valve must be disconnected
from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures
greater than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
Line pressure testing at 1/2 psi gauge
(14" WCP) or lower — The range must be
isolated from the gas supply piping system by
closing its individual manual shutoff valve
during any pressure testing of that system at test
pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).

Installation steps
A Preparation
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and
install range.
Failure to follow this instruction can
result in back or other injury.
1.
Put on safety glasses and gloves. Do Not
use oven door handle to lift or move the range.
2.
Remove oven racks and parts package
from inside oven. Remove shipping materials,
tape and protective film from range.
B Anti-tip bracket installation
WARNING
Contact a qualified floor covering installer for
the best procedure for drilling mounting
holes through your type floor covering.
4.
Tip Over Hazard
A child or adult can tip the range and be
killed.
Connect anti-tip bracket to rear range
foot.
Reconnect the anti-tip bracket, if the
range is moved.
Failure to follow these instructions can
result in death or serious burns to
children and adults.
Page 4
Use the anti-tip bracket
template/instruction sheet to install the
anti-tip bracket.
Anti-tip bracket must be
anchored securely to the sub
floor.
Depending on the
thickness of your
flooring, longer
screws may be
needed to anchor
the bracket
to the sub floor.
Longer screws are
available from your
local hardware store.

drive ratchet to lower rear leveling legs onehalf turn. Use channel lock pliers to lower front
leveling legs one-half turn.
Before moving range across floor, check that
range is still on cardboard shipping base to
protect floor covering.
6.
Making sure the
anti-tip bracket is
installed:
anti-tip
• Look for the

• Slide range back so rear range foot is under
anti-tip bracket.
7.
If installing the range in a mobile
home, you MUST secure the range to the floor.
Any method of securing the range is adequate as
long as it conforms to “Manufactured Home
Construction and Safety Standard,” Page 2.
8.
Place rack in oven. Place level on
rack, first side to side; then front to back.
If range is not level, pull range forward until
rear leveling leg is free of the anti-tip bracket.
Use 3/8" drive ratchet and channel lock pliers
to adjust leveling legs up or down until range
is level. Push range back into position. Check
that rear leveling leg is engaged in anti-tip
bracket.
Note: Oven must be level for satisfactory
baking conditions.
D Gas and electrical connections
12.
All connections must be wrench-tightened.
Use a brush and liquid detergent
to test all gas connections. Bubbles around
connections will indicate a leak. If a leak
appears, shut off gas valve controls and
tighten connections. Then check connections
again. Clean all detergent from range.

Center the burner cap on burner
base. Burner cap should be level when
properly positioned. Place burner grates
over burner.
11.
Check that range regulator shutoff
valve is in the “on” position. Open the manual
shutoff valve in the gas supply line.
E Check operation
Electronic ignition system
Check operation of oven burner
Cooktop and oven burners use electronic
ignitors in place of standing pilots. When a
cooktop control knob is turned to the
“LIGHT” position, the system creates a
spark to light the burner. This sparking
continues until the control knob is turned to
the desired setting.
When the oven control is turned to the
desired setting, a hot surface ignitor heats to
a bright orange and ignites the gas. No
sparking occurs and the glow bar remains
on while the burner operates.
16.
Open broiler drawer to observe
oven burner operation.

make installing the range in another
home as easy
as the first installation.
Gas conversions (from Natural gas to L.P. gas; or
from L.P. gas to Natural gas) must be done by a
qualified installer.
