WARNING!
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to
publish a list of substances known to the state to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm, and
requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Have the installer show you the location of the range gas shut-off valve and how to shut it off if necessary.
■ Do not attempt to repair or replace any
part of your range unless it is specifically
recommended in this manual. All other
service should be referred to a qualified
technician.
■ Plug your range into a 120-volt grounded
outlet only. Do not remove the round
grounding prong from the plug. If in doubt
about the grounding of the home electrical
system, it is your personal responsibility and
obligation to have an ungrounded outlet
replaced with a properly grounded,
three-prong outlet in accordance with
the National Electrical Code. Do not use
an extension cord with this appliance.
Installation Instructions
■ Have your range installed and properly
grounded by a qualified installer, in
accordance with the Installation Instructions.
Any adjustment and service should be
performed only by qualified gas range
installers or service technicians.
Operating Instructions
Gas appliances can cause minor exposure to four of these substances, namely benzene, carbon
monoxide, formaldehyde and soot, caused primarily by the incomplete combustion of natural gas or
LP fuels. Properly adjusted burners, indicated by a bluish rather than a yellow flame, will minimize
incomplete combustion. Exposure to these substances can be minimized by venting with an open
window or using a ventilation fan or hood.

Installation Instructions
These adjustments must
be made by a qualified service technician
in accordance with the manufacturer’s
instructions and all codes and requirements
of the authority having jurisdiction. Failure
to follow these instructions could result in
serious injury or property damage. The
qualified agency performing this work
assumes responsibility for the conversion.
■ After prolonged use of a range, high floor
temperatures may result and many floor
coverings will not withstand this kind of use.
Never install the range over vinyl tile or
linoleum that cannot withstand such type
of use. Never install it directly over interior
kitchen carpeting.
■ Do not leave children alone or unattended
where a range is hot or in operation. They
could be seriously burned.
■ Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or hang
on the oven door, storage drawer, warming
drawer or cooktop. They could damage the
range and even tip it over, causing severe
personal injury.
■
CAUTION: Items of interest to
Consumer Support
children should not be stored in cabinets
above a range or on the backsplash of a
range—children climbing on the range
to reach items could be seriously injured.
WARNING:

NEVER use this
appliance as a space heater to heat or
warm the room. Doing so may result
in carbon monoxide poisoning and
overheating of the oven.
■ Never wear loose fitting or hanging garments
while using the appliance. Be careful when
reaching for items stored in cabinets over the
range. Flammable material could be ignited
if brought in contact with flame or hot oven
surfaces and may cause severe burns.
■ Do not store flammable materials in an
oven, a range storage drawer, a warming
drawer or near a cooktop.
■ Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
■ Do not let cooking grease or other
flammable materials accumulate in or
near the range.
■ Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick
up a flaming pan. Turn the controls off.
Smother a flaming pan on a surface burner
by covering the pan completely with a
well-fitting lid, cookie sheet or flat tray.
Use a multi-purpose dry chemical or
foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ Flaming grease outside a pan can be put
out by covering it with baking soda or,
if available, by using a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ Flame in the oven can be smothered
completely by closing the oven door and
turning the control to off or by using a
multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type
fire extinguisher.
■ Let the burner grates and other surfaces
cool before touching them or leaving them
where children can reach them.
■ Never block the vents (air openings) of the
range. They provide the air inlet and outlet
that are necessary for the range to operate
properly with correct combustion. Air
openings are located at the rear of the
cooktop, at the top and bottom of the oven
door, and at the bottom of the range under
the kick panel or storage drawer.
■ Large scratches or impacts to glass doors can
lead to broken or shattered glass.
WARNING!
SURFACE BURNERS
■ Always use the LITE position when igniting
the top burners and make sure the burners
have ignited.
■ Never leave the surface burners unattended
at high flame settings. Boilovers cause
smoking and greasy spillovers that may
catch on fire.
■ Use only dry pot holders—moist or damp
pot holders on hot surfaces may result in
burns from steam. Do not let pot holders
come near open flames when lifting
cookware. Do not use a towel or other
bulky cloth in place of a pot holder.
■ When using glass cookware, make sure it
is designed for top-of-range cooking.
■ Carefully watch foods being fried at a high
flame setting.
■ Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
■ Do not leave any items on the cooktop. The
hot air from the vent may ignite flammable
items and will increase pressure in closed
containers, which may cause them to burst.
■ Use a deep fat thermometer whenever
possible to prevent overheating fat beyond
the smoking point.
■ Use the least possible amount of fat for
effective shallow or deep-fat frying. Filling
the pan too full of fat can cause spillovers
when food is added.
■ Never try to move a pan of hot fat, especially
a deep fat fryer. Wait until the fat is cool.
■ Do not leave plastic items on the cooktop—
they may melt if left too close to the vent.
■ Keep all plastics away from the surface
burners.
■ To avoid the possibility of a burn, always be
certain that the controls for all burners are
at the OFF position and all grates are cool
before attempting to remove them.
■ If range is located near a window, do not
hang long curtains that could blow over the
surface burners and create a fire hazard.
■ If you smell gas, turn off the gas to the range
and call a qualified service technician. Never
use an open flame to locate a leak.
■ Always turn the surface burner controls off
before removing cookware.
■ Do not lift the cooktop on sealed burner
models. Lifting the cooktop can lead
to damage and improper operation of
the range.
5
Consumer Support
■ If a combination of oils or fats will be used in
frying, stir together before heating or as fats
melt slowly.
■ Foods for frying should be as dry as possible.
Frost on frozen foods or moisture on fresh
foods can cause hot fat to bubble up and
over the sides of the pan.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ To minimize the possibility of burns,
ignition of flammable materials and spillage,
turn cookware handles toward the side or
back of the range without extending over
adjacent burners.
■ Do not use a wok on the cooking surface
if the wok has a round metal ring that is
placed over the burner grate to support
the wok. This ring acts as a heat trap,
which may damage the burner grate and
burner head. Also, it may cause the burner
to work improperly. This may cause a
carbon monoxide level above that
allowed by current standards, resulting
in a health hazard.
Installation Instructions
■ Adjust the top burner flame size so it
does not extend beyond the edge of the
cookware. Excessive flame is hazardous.
■ Do not flame foods on the cooktop. If you do
flame foods under the hood, turn the fan on.
Operating Instructions
Use proper pan size—avoid pans that are unstable or easily tipped. Select cookware having flat bottoms
large enough to cover burner grates. To avoid spillovers, make sure cookware is large enough to contain
the food properly. This will both save cleaning time and prevent hazardous accumulations of food, since
heavy spattering or spillovers left on range can ignite. Use pans with handles that can be easily grasped
and remain cool.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
Stand away from the range when opening the door of a hot oven. The hot air and steam that escape
can cause burns to hands, face and eyes.
■ Do not use the oven for a storage area.
Items stored in the oven can ignite.
■ When using cooking or roasting bags in the
oven, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
■ Do not use your oven to dry newspapers.
If overheated, they can catch fire.
■ Place the oven shelves in the desired
position while the oven is cool.
Installation Instructions
■ Pulling out the shelf to the stop-lock is a
convenience in lifting heavy foods. It is also
a precaution against burns from touching
hot surfaces of the door or oven walls. The
lowest position is not designed to slide.
■ Do not heat unopened food containers.
Pressure could build up and the container
could burst, causing an injury.
WARNING: NEVER cover
Troubleshooting Tips
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 linings may also trap
heat, causing a fire hazard.
Consumer Support
■ Do not use aluminum foil anywhere in the
oven except as described in this manual.
Misuse could result in a fire hazard or
damage to the range.
6
■ Use only glass cookware that is
recommended for use in gas ovens.
■ Always remove any broiler pan from range
as soon as you finish broiling. Grease left in
the pan can catch fire if oven is used without
removing the grease from the broiler pan.
■ When broiling, if meat is too close to the
flame, the fat may ignite. Trim excess fat to
prevent excessive flare-ups.
■ Make sure any broiler pan is in place
correctly to reduce the possibility of
grease fires.
■ If you should have a grease fire in a broiler
pan, touch the CLEAR/OFF pad, and keep
the oven door closed to contain fire until
it burns out.
■ For safety and proper cooking performance,
always bake and broil with the oven door
closed.
SELF-CLEANING OVEN
■ Be sure to wipe off excess spillage before
self-cleaning operation.
■ Before self-cleaning the oven, remove
the shelves, any broiler pan, grid and other
cookware.
■ Clean only parts listed in this Owner’s
Manual.
■ Do not use oven cleaners. No commercial
oven cleaner or oven liner of any kind
should be used in or around any part of
the oven. Residue from oven cleaners will
damage the inside of the oven when the
self-clean cycle is used.
Operating Instructions
■ Do not clean the door gasket. The door
gasket is essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage or
move the gasket.
■ If the self-cleaning mode malfunctions,
turn the oven off and disconnect the power
supply. Have it serviced by a qualified
technician.

When one burner is turned to LITE,
all the burners spark. Do not attempt to
disassemble or clean around any burner
while another burner is on. An electric
shock may result, which could cause you
to knock over hot cookware.
The smallest burner in the right rear
position is the simmer burner. This burner
can be turned down to a very low simmer
setting. It provides precise cooking
performance for delicate foods such as
sauces or foods that require low heat for
a long cooking time.
The medium (left rear and, on some
models, left front) and the large (right
front and, on some models, left front)
burners are the primary burners for most
cooking. These general-purpose burners
can be turned down from HI to LO to suit
a wide range of cooking needs.
NOTE: On some models, the burners are all the
same size and power.
On some models
How to Select Flame Size
For safe handling of cookware, never let the flames
extend up the sides of the cookware.
8
Watch the flame, not the knob, as you
reduce heat. When fast heating is desired,
the flame size on a gas burner should
match the cookware you are using.
Flames larger than the bottom of the
cookware will not result in faster heating
of the cookware and could be hazardous.
Top-of-Range Cookware
Aluminum: Medium-weight cookware is
recommended because it heats quickly
and evenly. Most foods brown evenly in an
aluminum skillet. Use saucepans with tightfitting lids when cooking with minimum
amounts of water.
Enamelware: Under some conditions,
the enamel of some cookware may melt.
Follow cookware manufacturer’s
recommendations for cooking methods.
Heatproof Glass Ceramic: Can be used for
either surface or oven cooking. It conducts
heat very slowly and cools very slowly. Check
cookware manufacturer’s directions to be
sure it can be used on gas ranges.
Stainless Steel: This metal alone has poor
heating properties and is usually combined
with copper, aluminum or other metals for
improved heat distribution. Combination
metal skillets usually work satisfactorily if
they are used with medium heat as the
manufacturer recommends.
Installation Instructions
Stove Top Grills (on models with sealed burners)
Do not use stove top grills on your sealed
gas burners. If you use the stove top grill
on the sealed gas burner, it will cause
incomplete combustion and can result
in exposure to carbon monoxide levels
above allowable current standards.
This can be hazardous to your health.
Wok This Way (on models with sealed burners)
Only a flat-bottomed wok should be used.
Do not use a flat-bottomed wok on a
support ring. Placing the ring over the
burner or grate may cause the burner
to work improperly, resulting in carbon
monoxide levels above allowable standards.
This could be dangerous to your health.
Troubleshooting Tips
Use a flat-bottomed wok.
We recommend that you use a 14 ″ or smaller
flat-bottomed wok. Make sure the wok bottom
sits flat on the grate. They are available at your
local retail store.
Operating Instructions
Cast-Iron: If heated slowly, most skillets will
give satisfactory results.
Glass: There are two types of glass
cookware—those for oven use only and
those for top-of-range cooking (saucepans,
coffee and teapots). Glass conducts heat
very slowly.

To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the desired position before you turn the oven on.
Before you begin…
The shelves have stop-locks, so that when
placed correctly on the shelf supports
(A through E), they will stop before
coming completely out, and will not tilt.
When placing and removing cookware,
pull the shelf out to the bump on the
shelf support.
To remove a shelf, pull it toward you, tilt the
front end up and pull it out.
To replace, place the end of the shelf
(stop-locks) on the support, tilt up the
front and push the shelf in.
NOTE: The shelf is not designed to slide out at the
special low shelf (R) position.
The oven has 5 shelf positions.
It also has a special low shelf
position (R) for extra large items,
such as a large turkey.
Oven Vent
Plastic items on the cooktop may
melt if left too close to the vent.
Vent appearance and location vary.
Your oven is vented through ducts at the
rear of the range. Do not block these ducts
when cooking in the oven—it is important
that the flow of hot air from the oven
and fresh air to the oven burner be
uninterrupted. Avoid touching the vent
openings or nearby surfaces during oven or
broiler operation—they may become hot.
■ Handles of pots and pans on the cooktop may
become hot if left too close to the vent.
■ Do not leave plastic or flammable items on the
cooktop—they may melt or ignite if left too close
to the vent.
■ Do not leave closed containers on the cooktop.
The pressure in closed containers may increase,
which may cause them to burst.
■ Metal items will become very hot if they are left
on the cooktop, and could cause burns.

The oven has a special low shelf (R)
position just above the oven bottom.
Use it when extra cooking space is
needed, for example, when cooking
a large turkey. The shelf is not
designed to slide out at this position.

Preheating and Pan Placement
Aluminum Foil
Do not use aluminum foil on the bottom of
the oven.
Never entirely cover a shelf with aluminum
foil. This will disturb the heat circulation
and result in poor baking.
Consumer Support
A smaller sheet of foil may be used to catch
a spillover by placing it on a lower shelf
several inches below the food.
Oven Moisture
As your oven heats up, the temperature
change of the air in the oven may cause
water droplets to form on the door glass.
These droplets are harmless and will
evaporate as the oven continues to heat up.
Troubleshooting Tips
For ovens without a preheat indicator light or tone,
preheat 10 minutes.
Baking results will be better if baking pans
are centered in the oven as much as
possible. Pans should not touch each other
or the walls of the oven. If you need to use
two shelves, stagger the pans so one is not
directly above the other, and leave
approximately 11⁄2″ between pans, from
the front, back and sides of the wall.
Installation Instructions
Check food for doneness at minimum
time on recipe. Cook longer if
necessary.
Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it.
To preheat, set the oven at the correct
temperature. Preheating is necessary for
good results when baking cakes, cookies,
pastry and breads.

The type of margarine will affect baking performance!
Most recipes for baking have been developed using high fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you
decrease the fat, the recipe may not give the same results as with a higher fat product.
Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries, cookies or candies are made with low fat spreads. The lower the fat
content of a spread product, the more noticeable these differences become.
Federal standards require products labeled “margarine” to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low fat spreads, on the
other hand, contain less fat and more water. The high moisture content of these spreads affects the texture and flavor
of baked goods. For best results with your old favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or stick spreads containing at least
70% vegetable oil.

CAUTION: Do not operate the
cooktop without all burner parts,
drip pans (if so equipped) and
grates in place.
The burner grates and drip pans (if so
equipped) can be lifted off, making them
easy to clean.
The holes in the surface burners of your
range must be kept clean at all times for
proper ignition and an even, unhampered
flame.
You should clean the surface burners
routinely, especially after bad spillovers,
which could clog these holes.
Wipe off surface burners. If heavy spillover
occurs, remove the surface burners from
the range. Burners lift out for cleaning. Lift
up the cooktop and then lift out the surface
burners.
Do not use steel wool because it will clog
the surface burner openings and scratch
the surface burners. If the holes become
clogged, clean them with a sewing needle
or twist-tie.
Before putting the surface burner back,
shake out excess water and then dry it
thoroughly by setting it in a warm oven
for 30 minutes. Then place it back in the
range, making sure it is properly seated
and level.
Check the flame pattern of each burner.
If the flames are “jumpy” (not steady),
clean the holes again with a sewing needle
or twist-tie.
Clean these holes thoroughly on

Burner Grates
Lift out when cool. Grates should be
washed regularly and, of course, after
spillovers. Wash them in hot, soapy water
and rinse with clean water. When replacing
the grates, be sure they are positioned
securely over the burners.
Although they are durable, the grates
will gradually lose their shine, regardless
of the best care you can give them. This is
due to their continual exposure to high
temperatures. You will notice this sooner
with lighter color grates.
NOTE: Do not clean the grates in a self-cleaning oven.
Do not operate a burner for an extended
period of time without cookware on the
grate. The finish on the grate may chip
without cookware to absorb the heat.
Installation Instructions
Cooktop Surface
To avoid damaging the porcelain enamel
surface of the cooktop and to prevent it
from becoming dull, clean up spills right
away. Foods with a lot of acid (tomatoes,
sauerkraut, fruit juices, etc.) or foods with
high sugar content could cause a dull spot
if allowed to set.
NOTE: Do not store flammable materials in
an oven or near the cooktop. Do not store or
use combustible materials, gasoline or other
flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance.
NOTE: Do not lift the cooktop on sealed burner
models. Lifting the cooktop can lead to damage
and improper operation of the range.
Stainless Steel Surfaces (on some models)
Do not use a steel wool pad; it will scratch
the surface.
To clean the stainless steel surface,
use warm sudsy water or a stainless steel
cleaner or polish. Always wipe the surface
in the direction of the grain. Follow the
cleaner instructions for cleaning the
stainless steel surface.

Operating Instructions
On models with professional-style double
grates, the grates are position-specific. For
maximum stability, these grates should only
be used in their proper position; they
cannot be interchanged left to right or
front to back. For convenience, the
undersides of the left and right grates are
marked “LEFT FRONT” and “RIGHT

Lift-Off Oven Door
The oven door is removable, but it is heavy. You may
need help removing and replacing the door.
■ The area outside the gasket can be
cleaned with a soap-filled scouring pad.
To remove the door, open it a few inches to
the special stop position that will hold the
door open. Grasp firmly on each side and
lift the door straight up and off the hinges.
To clean the outside of the door:
NOTE: Be careful not to place hands between the
hinge and the oven door frame as the hinge could
snap back and pinch fingers.
Lift the door straight up and off
the hinges.
To replace the door, make sure the hinges
are in the special stop position. Position
the slots in the bottom of the door squarely
over the hinges. Then lower the door
slowly and evenly over both hinges at the
same time. If the hinges snap back against
the oven frame, pull them back out.
■ Use soap and water to thoroughly clean
the top, sides and front of the oven door.
Rinse well. You may also use a glass
cleaner to clean the glass on the outside
of the door.
■ Spillage of marinades, fruit juices, tomato
sauces and basting materials containing
acids may cause discoloration and should
be wiped up immediately. When the
surface is cool, clean and rinse.
■ Do not use oven cleaners, cleansing
powders or harsh abrasives on the
outside of the door.
To clean the inside of the door:
The gasket is designed with a gap
at the bottom to allow for proper
air circulation.
Do not rub or clean the door gasket—
it has an extremely low resistance
to abrasion.
If you notice the gasket becoming
worn, frayed or damaged in any way
or if it has become displaced on the
door, you should have it replaced.
■ Do not allow excess water to run into
any holes or slots in the door.
■ Because the area inside the gasket is
cleaned during the self clean cycle, you
do not need to clean this by hand. Any
soap left on the liner causes additional
stains when the oven is heated.
Oven Bottom
The oven bottom has a porcelain enamel
finish. To make cleaning easier, protect
the oven bottom from excessive spillovers
by placing a cookie sheet on the shelf
below the shelf you are cooking on. This is
particularly important when baking a fruit
pie or other foods with a high acid content.
Hot fruit fillings or other foods that are
highly acidic (such as tomatoes, sauerkraut,
and sauces with vinegar or lemon juice)
may cause pitting and damage to the
porcelain enamel surface and should be
wiped up immediately.

We don’t recommend using aluminum foil
on the oven bottom. It can affect air flow if
the holes are blocked and it can concentrate
heat at the bottom of the oven, resulting in
poor baking performance.
To clean up spillovers, use soap and water,
an abrasive cleaner or soap-filled scouring
pad. Rinse well to remove any soap before
self-cleaning.
Lift-Up Cooktop (on models with standard twin burners)
Clean the area under the cooktop often.
Built-up soil, especially grease, may catch
on fire.
To make cleaning easier, the cooktop may
be lifted up.
NOTE: Do not lift the cooktop on sealed burner
models. Lifting the cooktop can lead to damage
and improper operation of the range.
After cleaning, lower the cooktop (be
careful not to pinch your fingers).
Operating Instructions
Some models have dual support
rods that will hold the cooktop up
while you clean underneath it.
Clean under the cooktop with hot, soapy
water and a clean cloth. If you removed
your surface burners while cleaning,
make sure they are properly seated when
replacing them.

Oven Air Vents
Never block the vents (air openings) of the
range. They provide the air inlet and outlet
that are necessary for the range to operate
properly with correct combustion.
Air openings are located at the rear of
the cooktop, at the top and bottom of the
oven door, and at the bottom of the range,
under the storage drawer or kick panel
(depending on the model).
Lower Control Panel (Front Manifold Panel) and Knobs
Pull the knob straight off the stem.
It’s a good idea to wipe the control panel
after each use of the oven. Use a damp
cloth to clean or rinse. For cleaning, use
mild soap and water or a 50/50 solution of
vinegar and water. For rinsing, use clean
water. Polish dry with a soft cloth.

WARNING!
ANTI-TIP DEVICE
LOCATION
Do not locate the range where it may be subject to strong
drafts. Any openings in the floor or wall behind the range
should be sealed. Make sure the openings around the
base of the range that supply fresh air for combustion
and ventilation are not obstructed by carpeting or
woodwork.
All ranges can tip and injury could result.
To prevent accidental tipping of the range,
attach an approved Anti-Tip device to the
wall. (See Installing the Anti-Tip Device in this
section.) To check if the device is installed
and engaged properly, carefully tip the range
forward. The Anti-Tip device should engage
and prevent the range from tipping over.
Your range, like many other household items, is heavy
and can settle into soft floor coverings such as cushioned
vinyl or carpeting. Use care when moving the range
on this type of flooring. It is recommended that the
following simple and inexpensive instructions be
followed to protect your floor.
If you pull the range out from the wall for
any reason, make sure the Anti-Tip device
is engaged when you push the range back
against the wall.
The range should be installed on a sheet of plywood
(or similar material). When the floor covering ends at
the front of the range, the area that the range will rest
on should be built up with plywood to the same level or
higher than the floor covering.
■ For your safety, never use your range for warming
or heating the room. Your oven and cooktop are
not designed to heat your kitchen. Top burners
should not be operated without cookware on the
grate. Such abuse could result in fire and damage
to your range and will void your warranty.
This will allow the range to be moved for cleaning
or servicing. Also, make sure your floor covering will
withstand 180°F. (See the Installation Safety Instructions
section.)
■ Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids
in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
Explosions or fires could result.
Make sure the wall coverings around your range can
withstand the heat generated (up to 200°F) by the range.
(See the Installation Safety Instructions section.)
■ Do not use oven for a storage area. Items stored in
the oven can ignite.
IMPORTANT!
■ Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate in or near the range.
Remove all tape and packaging. Make sure the burners
are properly seated and level.
Lift up the cooktop (on models with standard twin
burners) and remove any packing material under it.
Take the accessory pack out of the oven and/or drawer.
Check to be sure that no range parts have come loose
during shipping.

2 CONNECT THE RANGE TO GAS
GAS SUPPLY
Shut off the main gas supply valve before disconnecting
the old range and leave it off until the new hookup has
been completed. Don’t forget to relight the pilot on other
gas appliances when you turn the gas back on.
Your range is designed to operate at a pressure of 4″ of
water column on natural gas or, if designed for LP gas
(propane or butane), 10″ of water column.
Because hard piping restricts movement of the range,
the use of a CSA International-certified flexible metal
appliance connector is recommended unless local codes
require a hard-piped connection.
Make sure you are supplying your range with the type
of gas for which it is designed.
This range is convertible for use on natural or
propane gas. If you decide to use this range on LP gas,
conversion must be made by a qualified LP installer
before attempting to operate the range on that gas.
Never use an old connector when installing a new range.
If the hard piping method is used, you must carefully
align the pipe; the range cannot be moved after the
connection is made.
For proper operation, the pressure of natural gas
supplied to the regulator must be between 4″ and 13″
of water column.
To prevent gas leaks, put pipe joint compound on, or
wrap pipe thread tape with Teflon* around, all male
(external) pipe threads.
For LP gas, the pressure supplied must be between 10″
and 13″ of water column.
When checking for proper operation of the regulator,
the inlet pressure must be at least 1″ greater than the
operating (manifold) pressure as given above.
A. Install a manual gas line shut-off valve in the gas line in
an easily accessed location outside of the range. Make
sure everyone operating the range knows where and
how to shut off the gas supply to the range.
The pressure regulator located at the inlet of the range
manifold must remain in the supply line regardless of
whether natural or LP gas is being used.
B. Install male 1/2″ flare union adapter to the 1/2″ NPT
internal thread at inlet of regulator. Use a backup
wrench on the regulator fitting to avoid damage.
A flexible metal appliance connector used to connect the
range to the gas supply line should have an I.D. of 1/2″
and be 5 feet in length for ease of installation. In Canada,
flexible connectors must be single wall metal connectors
no longer than 6 feet in length.
B. When installing the range from the front, remove the
90° elbow for easier installation.
C. Install male 1/2″ or 3/4″ flare union adapter to the
NPT internal thread of the manual shut-off valve,
taking care to back-up the shut-off valve to keep it
from turning.
D. Connect flexible metal appliance connector to the
adapter on the range. Position range to permit
connection at the shut-off valve.
E. When all connections have been made, make sure
all range controls are in the off position and turn on
the main gas supply valve. Use a liquid leak detector
at all joints and connections to check for leaks in
the system.
WARNING: DO NOT USE A FLAME
TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.
When using test pressures greater than 1/2 psig to
pressure test the gas supply system of the residence,
disconnect the range and individual shut-off valve
from the gas supply piping. When using test pressures
of 1/2 psig or less to test the gas supply system, simply
isolate the range from the gas supply system by closing
the individual shut-off valve.

3 ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS (CONT.)
Electrical Requirements
A. Usage Situations where Appliance Power Cord will be
Disconnected Infrequently.
120-volt, 60 Hertz, properly grounded branch circuit
protected by a 15-amp or 20-amp circuit breaker or time
delay fuse.
An adapter may be used only on a 15-amp circuit. Do not
use an adapter on a 20-amp circuit. Where local codes
permit, a TEMPORARY CONNECTION may be made
to a properly grounded two-prong wall receptacle by the
use of a UL-listed adapter, available at most hardware
stores. The larger slot in the adapter must be aligned
with the larger slot in the wall receptacle to provide
proper polarity in the connection of the power cord.
Extension Cord Cautions
Because of potential safety hazards associated with certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of
an extension cord. However, if you still elect to use an
extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a
UL-listed, 3-wire grounding-type appliance extension
cord and that the current carrying rating of the cord in
amperes be equivalent to, or greater than, the branch
circuit rating.
Temporary Method
(Adapter plugs not permitted in Canada)
Align large prongs/slots
Grounding
IMPORTANT—(Please read carefully)
FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, THIS APPLIANCE MUST
BE PROPERLY GROUNDED.

terminal to the wall receptacle cover screw does not
ground the appliance unless the cover screw is metal,
and not insulated, and the wall receptacle is grounded
through the house wiring. The customer should have
the circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make
sure the receptacle is properly grounded.
The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a
3-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a standard
three-prong grounding wall receptacle to minimize the
possibility of electric shock hazard from this appliance.
When disconnecting the power cord from the adapter,
always hold the adapter with one hand. If this is not
done, the adapter ground terminal is very likely to break
with repeated use. Should this happen, DO NOT USE
the appliance until a proper ground has again been
established.
The customer should have the wall receptacle and circuit
checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the
receptacle is properly grounded.
Where a standard two-prong wall receptacle is
encountered, it is the personal responsibility and
obligation of the customer to have it replaced with
a properly grounded three-prong wall receptacle.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT OR
REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND) PRONG FROM
THE POWER CORD.
A word about GFCI’s – GFCI’s are not required or
recommended for gas range receptacles.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI’s) are devices
that sense leakage of current in a circuit and automatically
switch off power when a threshold leakage level is
detected. These devices must be manually reset by the
consumer. The National Electrical Code requires the
use of GFCI’s in kitchen receptacles installed to serve
countertop surfaces. Performance of the range will not
be affected if operated on a GFCI-protected circuit
but occasional nuisance tripping of the GFCI breaker
is possible.
40
Installation Instructions
3 ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS (CONT.)
5 CHECK IGNITION OF SURFACE
BURNERS
B. Usage Situations where Appliance Power Cord will be
Disconnected Frequently.
Operation of all cooktop and oven burners should be
checked after the range and gas supply lines have been
carefully checked for leaks.
Do not use an adapter plug in these situations because
disconnecting of the power cord places undue strain on
the adapter and leads to eventual failure of the adapter
ground terminal. The customer should have the 2-prong
wall receptacle replaced with a three-prong (grounding)
receptacle by a qualified electrician before using the
appliance.
Electric Ignition Models
Select a top burner knob and simultaneously push in and
turn to LITE position. You will hear a clicking sound
indicating proper operation of the spark module. Once the
air has been purged from the supply lines, burners should
light within 4 seconds. After burner lights, rotate knob out of
the LITE position. Try each burner in succession until all
burners have been checked.
The installation of appliances designed for mobile home
installation must conform with the Manufactured
Home Construction and Safety Standard, Title 24 CFR,
Part 3280 (formerly the Federal Standard for Mobile
Home Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD, Part 280)
or, when such standard is not applicable, the Standard
for Manufactured Home Installations, latest edition
(Manufactured Home Sites, Communities and Set-Ups),
ANSI A225.1, latest edition, or with local codes. In
Canada, mobile home installation must be in accordance
with the current CAN/CSA Z240/MH Mobile Home
Installation Code.
Quality of Flames
The combustion quality of burner flames needs to be
determined visually.
(A) Yellow flames—
Call for service
(B) Yellow tips on
outer cones—
Normal for LP gas
Electric Disconnect
■ Locate disconnect plug on the range back.
■ Pinch sides of connector and pull out of range back.
(C) Soft blue
flames—Normal for
natural gas
If burner flames look like (A), call for service. Normal
burner flames should look like (B) or (C), depending
on the type of gas you use.
With LP gas, some yellow tipping on outer cones is normal.
6 CHECK IGNITION OF OVEN BURNER
The oven is designed to operate quietly and automatically.
To operate the oven, press the BAKE pad and then press the
number pads until 350° appears in the display. Touch the
START/ON pad. After 30–90 seconds, the oven burner will
ignite and burn until the set temperature is reached. The
oven burner will continue to cycle on and off as necessary to
maintain the oven at the temperature indicated by the display.
4 SEAL THE OPENINGS
Seal any openings in the wall behind the range and in
the floor under the range when hookups are completed.
To check ignition of the broil burner, touch the BROIL
HI/LO pad and then the START/ON pad. After 30–90
seconds, the broil burner will ignite.
Electric ignition models require electrical power to operate.
In case of a power outage, the oven burners on these models
cannot be lit manually with a match. Gas will not flow unless
the glow bar is hot.
If the oven is in use when a power outage occurs, the burner
will shut off and cannot be re-lit until power is restored.

B. Check for levelness by placing a spirit level or a cup,
partially filled with water, on one of the oven shelves.
If using a spirit level, take two readings—with the level
placed diagonally first in one direction and then
the other.
The flames for the top (broil) burner should be steady
with approximately 1″ blue cones and should not extend
out over the edges of the burner baffle.
C. Remove the storage drawer or kick panel. See the Care
and cleaning of the range section. The front leveling legs
can be adjusted from the bottom and the rear legs can
be adjusted from the top or the bottom.
D. Use an open-end or adjustable wrench to adjust the
leveling legs until the range is level.
To determine if the bottom burner flames are burning
properly, remove the oven bottom. Flames should have
approximately 1″ blue cones and, if range is supplied
with natural gas, should burn with no yellow tipping.
(With most LP gas, small yellow tips at the end of outer
cones are normal.) Flames should not lift off burner
ports. If lifting is observed, gradually reduce air shutter
opening until flames are stabilized.
E. After the range is level, slide the range away from the
wall so that the Anti-Tip device can be installed.
