WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Use a new AGA approved gas supply
line.
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.
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).

E Check operation
Electronic ignition system
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.
17.
Open broiler drawer. Follow the
instructions for your type of oven controls.
