Installing the Anti-Tip Bracket
Install the anti-tip bracket before installing the range. Mount the bracket
to the floor (preferred) or the wall (only if floor mounting is unsuitable).
If the range’s front panel (excluding bull nose) is over 27” (68.6 cm) from
the back wall, or if the flooring is too thick (see Wall-Mounting the AntiTip Bracket), wall-mounting is unsuitable.
Floor-Mounting the Anti-Tip Bracket
Provided are four plastic anchors and three sizes (4 each) of #8 or #12
Phillips-head screws for mounting the bracket. The anchors are for
concrete sub-flooring only.
To work properly, the anti-tip bracket must be mounted as instructed
to the sub-floor (including cement board). Do not attach the bracket
directly to tile, linoleum, or other flooring.
Concrete anchors

3. Determine screw size.
The minimum full thread depth (portion of screw threaded into
wood/slab) for wood is 3/8” (1 cm) and 5/8” (1.6 cm) for concrete. See
SCREW-SIZE TABLE (Pg. 9) to select a screw size.
Mounting the Bracket To a Concrete Floor
1. Drill four 3/8” countersink holes through the floor covering to expose
the concrete slab below.
2. With a 3/16” bit, drill 4 anchor holes 1-1/4” (3.2 cm) into the slab.
This depth is longer than the anchor but needed for proper installation.
3. Clean out the holes, and tap in the anchors so the tops are flush with
the concrete slab.
4. Place the bracket holes over the anchor holes, then insert the 4 screws
(ensuring their threads engage the anchors), and tighten the screws.
Mounting the Bracket To a Wood Floor
1. Drill four countersink holes through the floor covering to expose the
wood below.
2. (With a 1/16” bit for #8 screws or a 1/8” bit for #12 screws) Drill 4 pilot
holes in the wood floor.

Assembling the Cooktop
Operate the cooktop only when all burners are properly assembled.
1. Remove the burner rings, burner caps, and grates from their
shipping packages.
2. Install the burners as shown. When installing burner parts, twist
each piece back and forth slightly until it drops into place. The
burners do not work properly unless all pieces are properly seated.
3. Gently set the grates on the spill tray so each foot rests in its
corresponding dimple.

Installation Instructions
Verifying Proper Operation
Moving the Range for Service
Before operating the range, read the User Manual completely. It
contains important safety, service, and warranty information.
1. Ensure that all control knobs are off and all burner components are
properly assembled.
2. Open the gas-supply valve.
3. Plug in the range.
The oven ON indicator blinks for 10 seconds on this initial startup.
When the blinking stops, go to Step 4.
4. Test a burner by push-turning the knob to HIGH (flame icon).
Ignition may take 4 seconds, at which time the sparking stops.
If there is no ignition within 4 seconds, turn off the knob, wait 5
minutes for gas to dissipate, and retest.
5. After ignition, turn the knob to LOW, and observe the flame, which
should be steady and quiet with a sharp,
blue inner cone that varies in length
with burner size. Dacor’s Smart Flame™
feature shortens the flame under the
grate fingers to lengthen grate life. (If the
range is equipped for LP gas, the flame
tips are normally yellow.)
6. Turn the burner OFF, and repeat the test
for the other burners, turning each burner
off when done.
7. Open the oven door. On the control panel, turn on/off the light switch
to verify it works., then turn on/off the convection fan (behind the
convection filter on the back wall). You should hear the fan blades.
8. With the door open, turn the oven to 400°. The knob and the oven
ON indicator should illuminate. Within 1 minute, the bake burner
(bottom of the oven) should ignite and give off heat.
9. Turn the oven to BROIL. The bake burner should turn off. The knob
and oven ON indicator should remain illuminated. Within 1 minute,
the IR burner (top of the oven) should ignite and give off heat.
10. Turn off the oven.
Close the gas valve, and unplug the range.
Pull the range away from the wall.
Push the range into position, ensuring the anti-tip foot engages the
bracket (see Final Installation, Pg. 11).
Plug in the range, and open the gas valve.
