Step 1
Step 2
Remove the burner pans, then cut and discard the
shipping ties on the burner base. Confirm that
burner base is flat on the burner support and that
the air shutter is positioned over the gas orifice. Replace the burner pans.
The open burner heads are packed in a
separate box. Unpack and place the burner heads
on the burner base. Align holes in the top burner
with pins on the base of burner for proper capacity
& operation. For locations of burner heads, see the
diagram below.
Step 3
Grates are packed in a separate box. Inspect
grates for rubber feet. Each grate must have
four feet. Place grates on top of cook top.

Use & Care Manual
RANGETOP
BEFORE USING THE NEW RANGETOP
• Before using the rangetop for the first time, wash the outside area with soap and water to remove any shipping & factory
residue.
• The burner grates are designed in sections and are easy to remove and clean. They are made of cast iron with a porcelain
coating and will remain hot after the burner is turned-off creating a residual heat for continued cooking. Use caution when
handling.
• Your new professional rangetop is equipped with burners that are similar to those used in restaurants.
• The burner heads are large and designed to ensure even heat distribution for better cooking. They must be in place and
properly seated before lighting.
• The rangetop must not be operated without the burner heads.
• There are no continuously burning pilot lights. An electronic spark ignition system is used to light the burner. If the flame should
go out from a boil-over or a strong draft, the burner will automatically re-ignite.
OPERATION OF THE BURNERS
1. Use the front panel graphic to confirm your selection until you become familiar with the rangetop. Press in on the knob that
corresponds to the burner that you would like to light. Turn the knob counter-clockwise to the "American Flame" icon located on the knob – this is the light position of the burner valve.
2. The igniter for all the surface burners will begin sparking – however, gas will flow to only the selected burner.
3. After the burner lights, the igniter clicking will stop – indicating that the flame sensing and re-ignition system is active on the
selected burner.
4. Rotate the knob to any flame setting that you desire between MAX and SIMMER. The blue panel light will remain lit until the
valve is returned to the OFF position.
The surface burners are rated at different power levels:
BURNER TYPE
Open Burners
SMALL
12,000 BTU/hr.
MEDIUM
18,000 BTU/hr.
LARGE
25,000 BTU/hr.
When you are using the surface burners, select the burner power and location depending on the heating or cooking function you
would like to perform.
A normal flame is blue in color and steady. Foreign materials in the kitchen air or the gas line, especially in new construction
installations, may cause some orange color bursts during initial operation. This will disappear with continued use. Small yellow tips on
the ends of flames are normal when using LP gas.
If the flames look odd, (too small, too large, lazy or drifting, uneven around the burner circle, etc.), check to see that the burner head
is seated correctly on the burner base. Do this when the burner is cold by gently rocking the burner head or rotating the head from
side to side. If it is correctly seated, it will nest in detents, in the case of the sealed burners, or on the corresponding pin/hole for open
burners. If this does not correct the problem, turn to the Troubleshooting section of this manual.
AUTO RE-IGNITION
The surface burners are equipped with a special ignition and re-ignition system that senses the presence of flame and re-ignites the
burner should the flame disappear while gas is still flowing to the burner.
Strong drafts, spills and general grime influence the operation of the automatic re-ignition system – a clean system will generally
function better than a dirty system. Periodically remove any materials or grime that might build up on the high voltage spark electrode
– using a toothbrush or other non-metallic cleaning utensil.

COOKWARE RECOMMENDATIONS
To avoid the risk of serious injury, damage to the rangetop or cookware, please observe the following guidelines.
Bakeware, such as large casserole pans, cookie sheets, etc., should never be used on the rangetop.
Placement of large stock pots should be staggered when used on the rangetop. Select the base diameter of the pot to match the
diameter of the flame. The diameter of the flame and the diameter of the pan bottom should match or be slightly smaller. Too large
or too small pots on a burner will compromise cooking performance.
Do not place food packaged or wrapped in aluminum foil directly on the burner grate above the burner. Aluminum foil can melt
during cooking.
Be careful to not let plastic, paper or cloth come in contact with a hot burner grate. These materials can catch fire or melt.
Never let a pan boil dry – and if it occurs remember it can be extremely hot – and very dangerous. If this should occur, turn off the
burner immediately. Wait a while, until the pot cools down enough to handle – this could be several minutes, but could save you
from burns or other serious injury.
The pan bottom should be flat, the heavier the better – and well balanced on the rangetop grate – sitting flat without rocking –
preferably with tight fitting lids. Try not to slide the pot across the grates – while it is very handy to do so – you may end up
scratching the pot or the grate.
Always be careful when using high flames, as in wok cooking, as they may ignite nearby flammable materials or make the handles of
the wok very hot. Use the wok ring (optional) to stabilize the wok.

GRILL OPERATION
To turn on the grill, make sure there is nothing on the grilling surface, push in and turn the control counter clockwise to the HIGH
position. The power ON indicator light will glow indicating the grill valve is on. The grill is equipped with a flame-sensing ignition
system – that automatically detects the presence of flame on the grill burner – and relights it in the event it should go out. Adjust
the flame to the desired height.
After cooking, allow the module to cool completely and remove the drip tray slowly, discarding grease and other food particles. The
grill grate may be removed - exposing the radiants - which may be lifted out and placed in the dishwasher along with the drip tray
for cleaning. The grate is porcelain coated and may be washed with hot soapy water and a soft brush.
USING YOUR GRILL
•
•
•
•
Turn on the exhaust fan above your rangetop.
Before starting to cook, check that Stainless Steel radiant, grease collector and grill grates are in place.
This gas grill may cook slightly faster, so adjust preheat and grilling times to allow for less cooking time than expected.
Push in the control knob and turn to ON. Rotate the knob counter-clockwise. You will hear a puffing
sound as the burner ignites and a blue light will indicate that the burner is lit.
• Preheat the grill for two to five minutes. The longer preheat time ensures darker grill marks on the food.
• Fatty foods or any excess fat used to marinate can cause minor flare-ups or puffs of flame. A small
amount of flare-up is normal.
BEST COOKING RESULTS WHEN USING YOUR GRILL
The intense radiant heat from the grill vaporizes the surface of your food, locking in flavor.
• Add any barbecue sauces during the last few minutes of cooking, long enough to caramelize the sauce.
• For best results, turn food with tongs or a flat spatula to avoid piercing meat or poultry.
• Turn meat once when juices rise to the surface. Turning meat more than once results in the loss of meat juices.
• Never squeeze juices out of meat.
• Before cooking steaks or chops, trim most of the outside fat to prevent excessive flare-ups. Slash into the edges of
steaks or chops to keep meat flat on the grill.
• Fish should be cooked at the lowest setting eight to ten minutes for every inch of thickness, measured at the thickest part
of the fish.

The griddle is not to be removed for cleaning.
First, clean griddle after use by scraping with a flat spatula to remove food particles.
Clean the griddle thoroughly with hot soapy water and a rough towel.
Rinse with a mixture of one quart water and one cup of vinegar.
To clean further, pour one teaspoon vegetable oil in center of the griddle and rub the entire surface with
a clean rough towel or scrub with a nylon scrubbing pad. Wipe with a damp paper towel.
Clean the griddle drip pan and trough after each use with hot soapy water and a sponge.
It is normal for the griddle to darken with age and use.
CLEANING THE CHROME GRIDDLE
To clean the chrome griddle, you need: Two soft scrub cloths, Mild degreaser dish soap. Instructions below:
1. Scrape the chrome griddle with a flexible nylon spatula. While the griddle is still warm, remove any left-on food particles.
Pull the spatula forward toward the front and push into a garbage can.
2. Moisten one of the soft scrub cloths. Add a drop of mild degreaser dish soap on the cloth.
Put two sides of the cloth together and rub to create soap lather.
3. Wipe the griddle from left to right. Clean in rows, top to bottom. Wash the entire griddle, including the sides. Rinse all the
soap from the cloth and wipe away any suds from the chrome griddle.
4. Remove all moisture from the griddle with the second, clean soft cloth. Wipe the area in rows again as well as the sides
and front. Repeat to ensure the chrome griddle is dry.
