certified technician or plumber. These instructions are for a professional. Gas installation
specifications and regulations may vary so please consult your local codes before proceeding.
1. Install a manual gas line shut-off valve in the gas line as follows:
a. in an easily accessed location outside the range
24
Broiler Operation
b. in the gas piping external to the appliance
2. Install male 1/2” flare union adapter to 1/2” NPT internal thread elbow at inlet of regulator.
On models equipped with standard twin burners, install the male pipe thread end of the 1/2” flare
union adapter to the 1/2” NPT internal thread at inlet of pressure regulator.
Use a wrench on the regulator fitting to avoid damage.
1.
Install male 1/2” or 3/4” (3/4” refers to 48-inch gas range) flare union adapter to the NPT
internal thread of the manual shut-off valve, taking care to secure the shut-off valve to keep it
from turning.
2.
The gas supply pressure for checking the regulator setting is 6 in.w.c. (Nature Gas) and 11
inch.w.c. (LP gas) connect flexible gas line connector to the regulator on the range. Position
range to permit connection at the shut-off valve.
3.
When all connections have been made, make sure all range controls are in the position and
turn on main gas supply valve.
4.
Leak testing of the appliance shall be conducted according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Use some soap water (50% water and 50% soap) or a leak detector at all joints and
connections to check for leaks in the system. Do not use a flame to check for gas leaks.
5.
The appliance must be isolated from the building’s gas supply piping system by closing its
individual manual shut-off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at
test pressure equal to or less than 1/2 psig(3.5kPa).
After installation:
1. Check ignition of cooktop burners.
2. Check ignition of oven burner.
3. Visually check tubular burner (oven burner) re-ignition to be sure both rows of burner ports are
relighting each time.
4. Check for gas leaks at all gas connections (using a gas detector, never a flame).
25
Broiler Operation
5. Check oven bake and convection bake function.
10. First Use
Conditioning the oven
Conditioning will burn off any manufacturing residues and ensure that you get the best results right
from the start.
Follow these steps to condition your new stove’s oven:
1.Insert all the shelves. See ‘Positioning the shelves’ for instructions.
2.Turn on the ventilation hood above your range on high.
3. Heat the empty oven at the highest temperature for:
a. 30 minutes using BAKE
b. 30 minutes using BROIL (some ovens only).
4. There will be a distinctive smell while you are conditioning the oven. This is normal, but make
sure the kitchen is well ventilated during the conditioning.
5. Once cooled, wipe out the oven with a damp cloth and mild detergent, and dry thoroughly.
6.Positioning the shelves
7. Both the sides panel and shelves with safety stop to keep them sliding out of the oven when
pulled forward;
8. And the front stop prevents the shelves from against hitting the back of the oven
11. Cooktop Safety Guidelines
26
Broiler Operation
There are dual burners have the same low turn-down setting (SIM) for gentle simmering (620
BTU/hr.). Use the SIM setting for melting chocolate and butter, cooking rice and delicate sauces,
simmering soups and stews, and keeping cooked food hot.
✓ Never leave the cooktop unattended when in use. Boil over causes smoking and greasy spills
that may ignite.
✓ Never allow flames to extend beyond cookware or curl up on sides. This could discolor and
damage the utensil and you may get burned touching the hot handle.
✓ Keep handles out of the way. Turn handles so that they don’t extend over the edge of the
range or on a burner that is on.
✓ Take care when deep-frying. Oil or fat can overheat very quickly, particularly on a high setting.
✓ Make sure that all burner parts are properly in place. Incorrectly or incompletely assembled
burners may produce dangerous flames. See ‘Replacing the burner parts’ in ‘Care and
cleaning’.
✓ Keep the burners clean, especially after a spill or boil over, make sure you clean the
affected burners before using them again. Food residue may clog the igniter and the
notches of the flame spreader, stopping the burner from functioning correctly. See ‘Care
and cleaning’ for instructions.
✓ Check that the burner flames. They should be blue with no yellow tipping, and burn
without fluttering all around the burner cap. If not, see ‘Troubleshooting’ for advice.
Surface Burner Ignition
27
Broiler Operation
(LRG4801U Top Burner)
To light the top burners, push and turn the appropriate control knob counter clockwise to the “HI”
position. You will hear a clicking noise – the sound of the electric spark igniting the burner. Once
burner ignition has been achieved, then turn the burner control knob to adjust the desired heat
setting. For LRG3001U design (with Thermocouple Ignition), Gas burners usually take 5 to 10
seconds to ignite. Knob must be fully depressed in until the burner ignites, or a constant gas flame
exist. *
*: In a Thermocouple Ignition System, a DC millivolt system provides a safe power source that will
maintain an open gas supply to a burner valve when use, in the event the flame was lost or blown
out this system will shut down the gas supply.
NOTE: When one burner is turned to the “HI” position, the burner igniters will park. Do not
attempt to disassemble or clean around any burner while another burner is on. Do not touch any
burner cap, burner base, or igniter while the igniters are sparking.
Simmer and Boil
A smaller flame will give the best simmer results. Small flames offer precise cooking performance
for delicate foods, keeping food warm, melting chocolate or butter, and for cooking that need to
cook over low heat for a long time.
2The highest flame settings provides the maximum heat that is available on your range. This setting
should be used for heavy cooking loads such as water boiling or pasta cooking.
Flame Size
When you select the flame size, watch the flame when you turn the knob.
Any flame larger than the bottom of the cookware is wasted. The flame should be steady and blue
in color. Foreign material in the gas line may cause an orange flame during initial operation.
Power Failure
If the gas does not ignite within four seconds, turn off the valve and allow at least five minutes for
any gas to dissipate. Repeat the lighting procedure.
If the power fails, it is not capable of being safely placed in operation and user that no attempt
should be made to operate during power failure.
28
Broiler Operation
Cooktop
To prevent the cooktop from discoloring or staining, clean cooktop after each use, and wipe up
acidic or sugary spills as soon as the cooktop has cooled.
The sealed burners of your range are not sealed to your cooktop and are designed to be removed.
Boil overs or spills will not seep underneath the cooktop. The burners should be cleaned after each
use.
Burner Grates
The grates must be properly positioned before cooking. Improper installation of the grates may
result in scratching of the cooktop and / or poor combustion.

Broil burner use
29
Broiler Operation
To light the broiler burner, push and turn the appropriate control knob clockwise to the broil
position. You will hear a clicking noise – the sound of the electric spark igniting the burner. Keep
pressing about 4 seconds until the burner ignition has been achieved.
Oven cooking guidelines
✓ Do not block the ducts on the rear of the range when cooking in the oven. It is important that
the flow of warm air from the oven and fresh air into the oven burner never be interrupted. Avoid
touching the vent opening or nearby surfaces during oven or broiler operation because they are
hot.
✓ Use all the oven modes with the oven door closed.
✓ Never use aluminum foil to cover the oven shelves or to line the floor of the oven. The trapped
heat can irreversibly damage the enamel and may even cause fire.
✓ Do not place water, ice, or any dish or tray directly on the oven floor, as this will irreversibly
damage the enamel.
✓ Do not cover the slotted grid of the broil/roast pan with aluminum foil. This will catch the grease
and could cause fire.
✓ Do not use plastic wrap or wax paper in the oven.
✓ For food safety reasons, do not leave food in the oven for longer than two hours before and
after cooking or defrosting. This is to avoid contamination by organisms which may cause food
poisoning. Take care during warmer weather.
30
Broiler Operation
According to the United Sates Department of Agriculture: DO NOT hold foods at temperatures
between 40ºF to 140ºF more than 2 hours. Cooking raw foods below 275ºF is not recommended.
Never cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack with materials
such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide
poisoning.
Aluminum foil lining may also trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
12. Oven Function
Natural Airflow Bake
Occurs when heat is transferred into the oven from the bake burners in the bottom of the oven
cavity. Heat is then circulated by natural airflow. This is a traditional bake setting.
Infrared Broil
The broil burner is located at the top of the oven. This burner heats the metal screen until it glows.
The glowing screen produces the infrared heat, searing the outside of broiled foods and sealing in
juices.
Convection Bake
The oven convection fan circulates and distributes the heat in the oven for faster and even cooking.
Convection cooking allows you to bake more items on multiple racks.
31
To bake using the convection fan:
Broiler Operation
1.Position the oven bottom cover and the oven shelves before using oven.
2.Remove any unused shelves and baking utensils from the oven.
3. Preheat the oven to the temperature stated in the recipe. Depending on the temperature and the
size of the oven, preheating will take around 15-20 minutes.
4. Arrange pans and food items evenly on the shelves. Make sure pans do not touch each other or
the sides of the oven. When baking a single item, always center the item on the oven shelf. If
baking on multiple shelves, make sure you stagger items on the shelves so that one is never
directly above another.
5. When baking using convection, either reduce the temperature stated in the recipe and leave the
baking time unchanged, or reduce the baking time by several minutes and leave the temperature
unchanged. For foods with a baking time of over an hour, reducing both the temperature and time
slightly may give the best results.
6. Dark metal baking pans or those with a dull finish absorb heat faster than shiny pans, and are
excellent for pies and breads, or anything that needs browning or a crisper crust.
7. A shiny finish may work best for foods that require lighter, delicate browning (e.g. cakes and
cookies), as it reflects some heat and gives a less intense baking surface.
8. Avoid opening the oven door frequently during baking.
Convection Roast
For best results use the broiler pan. The pan is used to catch grease spills and has a cover
to prevent grease splatter.
The convection fan circulates heated air over the around the food being roasted, sealing juices
quickly for a moist and tender product while, at the same time, creating a rich golden-brown
exterior.
Use the broil/roast pan and slotted grid supplied with the range when roasting in order to elevate
the meat on a metal roasting rack. This allows hot air to circulate around the meat, browning it
more evenly like a rotisserie. A suitable roasting rack can be purchased through your HRG by the
distributer or Customer Care.
When roasting larger items like a whole turkey, use only the pan and grid for greater stability.
32
Convection Defrost
Broiler Operation
With temperature control off, a motorized fan in the rear of the oven circulates air. The fan
accelerates natural defrosting of the food without heat. To avoid illness and food waste, do not
allow defrost food to remain in the oven for more than two hours without being cooked.
Defrosting
To thaw uncooked frozen food, set the oven temperature to 100-150°F . Once thawed, cook the
food immediately and do not refreeze.
To prevent liquid from thawing food dripping on the oven floor, be sure any uncooked food is
tightly wrapped in foil and/or placed in a container.
Convection Dehydration
With the temperature control on 175 F, warm air is radiated from the bake burners on the
bottom of the oven cavity and is circulated by a motorized fan in the rear of the oven.
Over a period of time, the water is removed from the food by evaporation. Removal of
water increases growth of microorganisms and detains the activity of enzymes.
13. Broiler Operation
Note: Door must be closed during broiler operation.
Broiling is a method of cooking tender cuts of meat directly under the infrared broiler in the oven.
Broiling in the oven is accomplished with the oven door closed. It is normal and necessary for some
smoke to be present to give the food a broiled flavor.
If you open the oven door to check the food, have it open for as short a time as possible. This is to
prevent the control panel from overheating and prevents melted knobs.
Use both the broil/roast pan and slotted grid supplied. The grid helps to reduce smoking and
splatter by letting grease drip into the bottom of the pan, away from intense heat. To prevent food
sticking, spray the grid with a light coating of non-stick cooking spray.
Preheating
33
Broiler Operation
Preheating is suggested when searing rare steaks (Remove the broiler pan before preheating with
the infrared broiler. Foods will stick to hard metal). To preheat, turn the “Oven” selector knob to the
“Broil” position. Wait for the burner to become hot, approximately 2 minutes. Preheating is not
necessary when broiling meat well-done.
To Broil
Broil one side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Season and serve.
Always pull the rack out to the “stop” position before turning or removing food.
Setting Broil
The “Oven” selector knob controls the Broil feature. When broiling, heat radiates downward from
the oven broiler for even coverage. The Broil feature temperature is 500 F (260℃).
The broil pan and insert used together allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the
high heat of the oven broiler. DO NOT use the broil pan without the insert.
DO NOT cover the broil pan insert with foil. The exposed grease could catch fire.
To set the oven to Broil:
1. Place the broiler pan insert on the broiler pan. Then place the food on the broiler pan insert.
2. Arrange the interior oven rack and place the broiler pan on the rack. Be sure to center the broiler
pan and position directly under the broil burner. If preheating the broil burner first, position the
broiler pan after the broil burner is preheated.
3. Turn selector knob to Broil.
The oven indicator light will remain on until the selector knob is turned to the off position or the
temperature control cycles off.
Broiling guidelines
Choose a suitable shelf position. To ensure that meat is cooked through rather than just browned
on the outside, broil thick pieces of meat and poultry on shelf positions 2 or 3. Use shelf position 4
for thinner items that need less cooking time like steaks, chops, or hamburger patties.
When finishing off meals by browning the top under the broiler, use metal or glass-ceramic
bakeware. Do not use heatproof glass or earthenware, as these cannot withstand the intense heat
34
of the broiler.
Broiler Operation
Center the item in the oven, so that it is directly under the broiler.
