BEFORE YOU BEGIN
TOOL LIST
Read these instructions completely and carefully.
• 1/8” Drill Bit
• Electric or Hand Drill
• Flat Blade screwdriver
•
IMPORTANT — Save these instructions
• Ruler
• Hand or saber saw
• Pencil
for local inspector’s use.
•
IMPORTANT — Observe all governing
codes and ordinances.
• Note to Installer – Be sure to leave these
instructions with the Consumer.
• Note to Consumer – Keep these instructions with
your Use and Care Guide for future reference.
• ATTENTION INSTALLER – All ovens must be hard
wired (direct wired) into an approved junction box.
A “plug and receptacle” is not permitted on these
products.
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Be sure your oven is installed properly by a qualified
installer or service technician.
• Be sure the oven is securely installed in a cabinet
that is firmly attached to the house structure.
Weight on the oven door could cause the oven to
tip, resulting in serious personal injury or death.
Never allow anyone to climb, sit, lean, stand or
hang on the oven door.
• The wall coverings, countertop and cabinets around
the oven should be able to withstand
the heat (up to 200°F) generated by the oven.
LOCATION
Cabinet space must be provided to enclose the
recessed part of your built-in oven. SINGLE OVEN
INSTALLATION — See Figure 1 for all necessary
dimensions. DOUBLE OVEN INSTALLATION — See
Figure 2 for all necessary dimensions. It is best to
make a template to insure accurate cutting. Place the
bottom of the template on a level base line, above the
floor. See dimension E in Figure 1 (Single Oven) or
Figure 2 (Double Oven).
It is important that the oven be installed at or above
the minimum height specified. The unit has been
tested and approved, in accordance with safety
standards, at this height.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
WARNING The electrical power to the oven
supply line must be shut off while connections
are being made. Failure to do so could result in
serious injury or death.
This appliance must
be supplied with
the proper voltage
Rating Plate
and frequency, and
Location
connected to an
individual, properly
grounded branch
circuit, protected by
a circuit breaker or fuse having amperage as noted on
rating plate. (Rating plate is located on front frame.)
We recommend you have the electrical wiring and
hookup of your oven done by a qualified electrician.
After installation, have the electrician show you where
your main oven disconnect is located.
Check with your local utilities for electrical codes
which apply in your area. Failure to wire your oven
according to governing codes could result in a
hazardous condition. If there are no local codes,
your oven must be wired and fused to meet the
requirements of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/
NFPA No. 70-Latest Edition. You can get a copy
of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA NO.
70-Latest Edition by writing:
National Fire Protection Association
Batterymarch Park
Quincy, MA 02269
Effective January 1, 1996, the National Electrical Code requires
that new, but not existing, construction utilize a 4 conductor
connection to an electric oven. When installing an electric oven
in new construction, a mobile home, recreational vehicle or an
area where local codes prohibit grounding through the neutral
conductor, follow the instructions in NEW CONSTRUCTION AND
FOUR-WIRE CORD CONNECTION KIT.
You must use a three-wire, single-phase A.C. 208Y/120 Volt
or 120/240 Volt, 60 Hertz electrical system. If you connect to
aluminum wiring, properly installed connections approved for use
with aluminum wiring must be used.

Installation Instructions
IMPORTANT: Remove all packing material and
literature from the oven before connecting any
electrical supplies.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
1. De-energize oven branch circuit.
2. With oven in front of cabinet opening, connect
flexible power cable to the junction box in such
a manner that it will hang down in a natural loop
against the left side of the back wall when the
oven is installed. Do not shorten this flexible
power cable. The flexible conduit connector must
be securely attached to the junction box and the
flexible conduit must be securely attached to the
connector. If the flexible conduit will not fit within
the connector, do not install the oven until a
connector of the proper size is obtained.
All new construction, mobile homes, recreational
vehicles and installations where local codes do
not allow grounding through neutral require a fourconductor branch circuit. For existing construction, a
three-conductor branch circuit connection may be used.

6. Install junction box cover.
NOTE TO ELECTRICIAN: The three power leads
supplied with this appliance are U.L. recognized for
connection to larger gauge household wiring. The
insulation of these three leads is rated at temperatures
much higher than the temperature rating of household
wiring. The current carrying capacity of a conductor is
governed by the temperature rating of the insulation
around the wire rather than the wire gauge alone.

INSTALLING OVEN
REPLACE THE OVEN DOOR
To remove the oven door:
1. Open the door to the stop position (see Fig. 3A).
1. Hold the door over the hinges with the slots at the
bottom edge of the door lined up with the hinges.
2. Grasp the door at each side and lift up and off the
hinges (see Fig. 3B).
2. Slide the door down onto the hinges as far as it
will go and close the door.

CAUTION When the door is removed and
hinge arms are at stop position, do not bump or try
to move the hinge arms. The hinges could snap back
causing an injury to the hands or damage to the
porcelain on the front of the range. Cover the hinges
with toweling or empty towel rolls while working in the
oven area.
3. Put the oven into the cabinet and use a 1/8” drill
bit to drill holes in the cabinet front through the
holes in the oven trim.
4. Secure the oven in the cabinet with the screws
provided.
5. The lower trim should be mounted to the bottom of
the oven frame with the 3 screws provided.
The lower front trim is packed separately and should
be added after the oven is installed. The oven door
must be removed to install the lower trim.
IMPORTANT: The trim provides cooling air entry
into cabinet through the bottom opening. The bottom
opening should never be blocked. See Fig. 3B.
