RANGE SAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety
messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.”
These words mean:
DANGER
WARNING
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow
instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.
WARNING
Tip Over Hazard
A child or adult can tip the range and be killed.
Install anti-tip bracket to floor or wall per installation instructions.
Slide range back so rear range foot is engaged in the slot of the anti-tip bracket.
Re-engage anti-tip bracket if range is moved.
Do not operate range without anti-tip bracket installed and engaged.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or serious burns to children and adults.
To verify the anti-tip bracket is installed and engaged:

Location Requirements
IMPORTANT: Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
■ It is the installer’s responsibility to comply with installation
clearances specified on the model/serial rating plate. The
model/serial rating plate is located on the frame behind a top
corner of the door or either side of the drawer.
■
To eliminate the risk of burns or fire by reaching over heated
surface units, cabinet storage space located above the
surface units should be avoided. If cabinet storage is to be
provided, the risk can be reduced by installing a range hood
that projects horizontally a minimum of 5" (12.7 cm) beyond
the bottom of the cabinets.
■
Cabinet opening dimensions that are shown must be used.
Given dimensions are minimum clearances.
■
The anti-tip bracket must be installed. To install the anti-tip
bracket shipped with the range, see “Install Anti-Tip Bracket”
section.
■
Grounded electrical supply is required. See the appropriate
“Electrical Requirements” section.
IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to your cabinets, check with your
builder or cabinet supplier to make sure that the materials used
will not discolor, delaminate or sustain other damage. This oven
has been designed in accordance with the requirements of UL
and CSA International and complies with the maximum allowable
wood cabinet temperatures of 194° (90°C).
A. Anti-tip bracket
B. #12 x 1⁵⁄₈" screws (2)
■
Anti-tip bracket must be securely mounted to floor or wall.
Thickness of flooring may require longer screws to anchor
bracket to floor.
Parts needed
If using a power supply cord kit:
■ A UL listed power supply cord kit marked for use with ranges.
The cord should be rated at 250 volts minimum, 40 amps or
50 amps that is marked for use with nominal 1³⁄₈" (3.5 cm)
diameter connection opening and must end in ring terminals
or open-end spade terminals with upturned ends.
■
A UL listed strain relief.
Check local codes. Check existing electrical supply. See the
appropriate “Electrical Requirements” section.
It is recommended that all electrical connections be made by a
licensed, qualified electrical installer.

Electrical Requirements
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrical installer determine that
the ground path and wire gauge are in accordance with local
codes.
Do not use an extension cord.
Be sure that the electrical connection and wire size are adequate
and in conformance with all local codes and ordinances.
WARNING: Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a
qualified electrician or service technician if you are in doubt as to
whether the appliance is properly grounded. Do not modify the
power supply cord plug. If it will not fit the outlet, have a proper
outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
■
A circuit breaker is recommended.
■
The range can be connected directly to the circuit breaker
box (or fused disconnect) through flexible or nonmetallic
sheathed, copper or aluminum cable. See the “Electrical
Connection” section.
■
Allow 2 to 3 ft (61.0 cm to 91.4 cm) of slack in the line so that
the range can be moved if servicing is ever necessary.
■
A UL listed conduit connector must be provided at each end
of the power supply cable (at the range and at the junction
box).
■
Wire sizes and connections must conform with the rating of
the range.
Electrical Connection
■
The wiring diagram is located on the Tech Sheet.
To properly install your range, you must determine the type of
electrical connection you will be using and follow the instructions
provided for it here.
■ Range must be connected to the proper electrical voltage
and frequency as specified on the model/serial rating plate.
The model/serial rating plate is located on the frame behind a
top corner of the door or either side of the drawer. Refer to
the figures in “Product Dimensions” in the “Location
Requirements” section.
■
The Tech Sheet is located on the back of the range inside a
clear plastic bag.

If connecting to a 3-wire system:
Local codes may permit the use of a UL listed, 3-wire, 250-volt,
40- or 50-amp range power supply cord (pigtail). This cord
contains 3 copper conductors with ring terminals or open-end
spade terminals with upturned ends, terminating in a IEC 60309
plug on the supply end. Connectors on the appliance end must
be provided at the point the power supply cord enters the
appliance. This uses a 3-wire receptacle of IEC 60309.

3. If range is not level, pull range forward until rear leveling leg is
removed from the anti-tip bracket.
4. Use a ¼" drive ratchet, wrench or pliers to adjust leveling legs
up or down until the range is level. Push range back into
position. Check that rear leveling leg is engaged in the anti-tip
bracket.
NOTE: Range must be level for satisfactory baking
performance.
For normal range use, it is not suggested to remove the oven
door. However, if removal is necessary, make sure the oven is off
and cool. Then, follow these instructions. The oven door is heavy.
To Remove:
1. Open oven door all the way.
2. Pinch the hinge latch between two fingers and pull forward.
Repeat on other side of oven door.
