Locate the L.P. /propane orilices

The L.P./Propane orifices are shipped in the literature package. They will have a digit number and the letter “L” on one side,

Each orifice will also show a series of engraved marks, (I, 11or III), located on the top.

SPECIAL NOTE: To convert the range back to natural gas, use the orifices that you removed during the L.PJ

Propane conversion and reverse steps 1•6 of the L. P./ Propane conversion section.

Adjust the low flame setting using the valve bypass screw as follows:

Low setting adjustments must be made with two other burners in operation on a medium setting.

This procedure prevents the low flame from being set too low resulting in the flame being extinguished when other burners are turned on.

These marks denote the precise location of each orifice to the cooktop burner.

3.

Check for leaks. After connecting range to gas, check system for leaks with a manometer. If a manometer is not available, turn the gas supply on to the range and use a liquid leak detector at all joints and connections to check for leaks.

Tighten all connections if necessa.ty to prevent gas leakage in the range or supply line.

Check alignment of valves after connecting the range to the gas supply to be sure the manifold pipe has not been moved. A misalignment could cause the valve knob stem to rub on the control panel, resulting in a gas leak at the valve.

Disconnect this range and its individual shutoff valve from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures greater than 1/2 psig.

Isolate the range from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual shut off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2” psig.

FOR INSTALLATION OVER A BUILT4N OVEN:

See Built-h Oven Installation for complete instructions.

STEP 4: ELECTRICAL CONNECTION

Electrical Requirements:

Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions we strongly recommend against the use of an extension cord. However, if you still elect to use an extension cord, it is absolutely necessa~ that it be a UL listed 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord and that the current carrying rating of the cord in amperes be equivalent to or greater than the branch circuit rating. Such extension cords are obtainable through your local appliance dealer.

GROUNDING

IMPORTAN~ (Please read carefulIy)

FOR PERSONAL SAFETW, THIS APPLIANCE

MUST BE PROPERLY GROUNDED.

The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a standard three-prong grounding wall receptacle to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from this appliance.

The customer should have the wall receptacle and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the receptacle is properly grounded.

Insure proper ground and firm connection before use.

Where a standard two-prong wall receptacle is encountered, it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to have it replaced with a properly grounded three-prong wall receptacle.

DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES,

CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND)

PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD.

USAGE SITUATIONS WHERE THE APPLIANCE

POWER CORD WILL BE DISCONNECTED

INFREQUENTLY.

For 15 amp circuit only, do not use an adaptor on a

20 amp circuit. Where local codes permit, a

TEMPORARY CONNECTION may be made to a properly grounded two-prong wall receptacle by the use of a UL listed adaptor available at most hardware stores. The larger slot in the adaptor must be aligned with the large slot in the wall receptacle to provide proper ~olarity in the connection of the power cord.

UNLESS THE SCREW IS MIXAL, AND NOT

INSULATED, AND THE WALL RECEPTACLE IS

GROUNDED THROUGH THE HOUSE WIRING. THE

CUSlX3MER SHOULD HAVE THE CIRCUIT

CHECKED BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN ‘IX3

MAKE SURE THE RECEPTACLE IS PROPERLY

GROUNDED.

When disconnecting the power cord from the adaptor, always hold the adaptor with one hand. If this is not done the adaptor ground terminal is very likely to break with repeated use. Should this happen, DO NOT USE the appliance until a proper ground has again been established,

USAGE SITUATIONS WHERE APPLIANCE POWER

CORD WILL BE DISCONNECTED FREQUENTLY.

Do not use an adaptor plug in these situations because disconnection of the power cord places undue strain on the adaptor and leads to eventual failure of the adaptor ground terminal.

The customer should have the two-prong wall receptacle replaced with a three-prong (grounding) receptacle by a qualified electrician before using the appliance.

In Canada, mobile home installation must be in accordance with the current CAN/CSA Z240/MH

Mobile Home Installation Code.

STEP 5: INSTALLING UNIT IN A STANDARD OR

TILE COUNTER

Before installing the unit in the cutout, attach the adhesive backed foam tape (shipped with unit) around the bottom surface of the glass, near the edge of the maintop.

To attach the unit to the counter, insert the hold down brackets in the slots on each side of the unit.

Use the screws supplied to attach unit to counter as shown, The unit must rest on the metal flange around the burner box and not on the glass.

STEP 6: ASSEMBLING THE COOKTOP BURNERS

Place the burner head on the burner bowl, so that the location of the spark igniter matches up with the opening in the burner head. Position the burner cap on the burner head. Place the burner grate over the burner assembly and into the burner bowl. The bottoms of the burner grates have fingers that fit into the corresponding indentations in the burner bowl.

+ BURNER GRATE

STEP 7: CHECK THE IGNITERS

Operation of electric igniters should be checked after cooktop and supply line connectors have been carefully checked for leaks and cooktop has been connected to electric power.

To check for proper lighting, push in and turn a burner valve to the LITE position. The burner valve should light when gas is available to burner. Once the burner lights, it should be turned out of the LITE position. TV each valve separately until all burners have been checked out.

BURNER IGNITION

COOKTOP SPARK IGNITION — When you turn the cooktop knob to LITE, the spark igniter makes a series of electric sparks (ticking sounds) which light the burner.

During a power fa~lure the burners will not light automatically.

In an emergency, a cooktop burner may be lit with a match by following the steps below.

BOWL~

SPARK IGNITER

ER TUBE (CHIMN IEY)

Turn each burner full on.

Flames should be blue in color with no trace of yellow. Foreign particles in the gas line may cause an orange flame at first but this will soon disappear.

The burner flames should not flutter or blow away from the burner. The inner cone of the flame should be between 1/2” and 3/4’ long.

1.

Light a match and hold the flame near the burner you want to light, Wooden matches work best.

2. Push in and turn the control knob slowly. Be sure you are turning the correct knob for the burner you are lighting.

NOTE: If the burner does not light within five seconds, turn the knob off and wait one minute before trying again.

STEP 8: WHEN ALL HOOKUPS ARE

COMPLETED

MAKE SURE ALL CONTROLS ARE LEFT IN THE OFF

POSITION.

MAKE SURE THE FLOW OF COMBUSTION AND

VENTILATION AIR TO THE RANGE IS UNOBSTRUCTED.

MODEL AND SERIAL NUMBER LOCATION.

The serial plate for your cooktop is located on the bottom of the burner box. In addition to the model and serial numbers, it tells you the ratings of the burners and type of fuel and pressure the cooktop was adjusted for when it left the factory.

When ordering parts, always include the serial number, model number and code letter to ensure proper replacement parts. Parts may be obtained through General Electric/Hotpoint Factoxy Service

Centers or General Electric/Hotpoint authorized

Customer Care servicers.
