•
Overhead range hoods, which operate by blowing a downward air flow on to a range, shall not
be used in conjunction with gas ranges other than when the hood and range have been designed,
tested and listed by an independent test laboratory for use in combination with each other.
•
Ensure that the room is well ventilated by keeping the air intakes open and in good working
order or by installing an extractor hood with discharge pipe. If the appliance is used intensively for a
long time the effectiveness of the ventilation will have to be increased, for example by opening a
window or increasing the power of any electric extractor fan.
•
Flammable materials should not be stored on the appliance or near surface units. This includes
paper, plastic and cloth items, such as cookbooks, plastic ware and towels, as well as flammable
liquids. Do not store explosives, such as aerosol cans, on or near the appliance. Flammable
materials may explode and result in fire or property damage.
•
Maintenance – Keep range area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline, and other
flammable vapors and liquids.
•
Storage in or on the Range – Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven or near
surface units.
Do not store items of interest to children in the cabinets above the appliance or on the backguard of
a range. Children should not be left alone or unattended in the area where appliance is in use. Do
not allow children to climb or play around the appliance. They should never be allowed to sit or stand
on any part of the appliance. Children climbing on the appliance to reach items could be seriously
injured.
•
DO NOT TOUCH THE COOKING SURFACE, THE BURNERS, GRATES OR ANY AREAS
NEAR THEM. Surface burners or appliance may be hot even though flames are not visible. Areas
near surface burners or appliance may become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do
not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials touch these areas until they have had sufficient
time to cool.
•
Do not wear loose-fitting or hanging garments while using the appliance. Do not let clothing or
other flammable materials contact hot surfaces.
•
Smother grease fires with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
•
Use an extinguisher ONLY if:
-
You know you have a Class A, B, C extinguisher, and you already know how to operate it.
-
The fire is small and contained in the area where it is started.
-
The fire department is being called.
-
You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.
•
When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or grease may catch fire if allowed to become
too hot.
•
Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let potholders touch hot heating elements, the flame or burners. Do not use a towel or
other bulky cloth instead of a potholder.
•
Do not heat unopened food containers. Buildup of pressure may cause the container to burst
and result in injury.
•
Stepping, leaning or sitting on this appliance can result in serious injuries and also cause
damage to the appliance.
•
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.
•
Know which knob controls which surface burner. Visually check that the burner has lit. Then
adjust the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.
•
Clean the appliance regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Exhaust fan
ventilation hoods and grease filters should be kept clean. Do not allow grease to accumulate on hood
or filter. Greasy deposits in the fan could catch fire. When cooking food turn the hood, fan on. Refer
to hood manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
•
Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend over adjacent surface burners. To
reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with
the utensil, the handle of the utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not
extend over adjacent surface burners.
•
Never leave surface burners unattended at high heat settings. Boil overs cause smoke and
greasy spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
•
Do not use aluminum foil to line any part of the appliance. Use aluminum foil only to cover food
during cooking. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock or fire.
•
Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are
suitable for appliance service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer’s recommendations for appliance use.
•
Do not use decorative surface burner covers. If a burner is accidentally turned on, the
decorative cover will become hot and possibly melt. You will not be able to see that the burner is on.
Burns will occur if the hot covers are touched. Damage may also be done to the range or burners
because the covers may cause overheating. Air will be blocked from the burner and cause
combustion problems.
•
Always use proper flame size. Adjust flame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the
utensil. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame to direct contact and
may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to flame will also improve efficiency.
•
Top burner flame size should be adjusted so it does not extend beyond the edge of the cooking
utensil.
•
Use the proper pan sizes. This appliance is equipped with surface units of different sizes. Select
utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit. The use of undersized utensils
will expose a portion of the surface heating unit to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing.
Proper relationship of utensil to the surface unit will also improve efficiency.
•
Do not use stove top grills on your gas appliance. If you use a stove top grill on a 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.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TIPPING OF THE RANGE, THE RANGE MUST BE SECURED BY
PROPERLY INSTALLED ANTI-TIP DEVICES. TO CHECK IF THE DEVICES ARE INSTALLED
PROPERLY, SLIDE RANGE FORWARD, LOOK FOR ANTI-TIP BRACKET SECURELY ATTACHED
TO FLOOR OR WALL, AND SLIDE RANGE BACK SO REAR RANGE FOOT IS UNDER ANTI-TIP
BRACKET.
•
The range will not tip during normal use. However, the range can tip if you apply too much force
or weight to the open door without having the anti-tip bracket fastened down properly.
TIP OVER HAZARD
A child or adult can tip the range and be killed.
Connect anti-tip bracket to rear range foot.
Reconnect the anti-tip bracket, if the range is moved.
See the installation instructions for details.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or serious burns to children and adults.
Ventilation Requirements
The range should have proper ventilation in order to keep the unit operating properly and maintain the
temperature of immediate surroundings within safe limits. Check your local building codes as they
may vary from the general rules outlined in this guide. It is recommended that a hood be installed
above the range that is rated no less than 400 CFM. This will provide adequate ventilation for this
range. Mounting distance of your ventilation is outlined by the manufacturer of your hood and is
dependent on the total BTU output of your range.
•
Observe all governing codes and ordinances. Do not obstruct flow of combustion and ventilation
air.
•
It is the installer’s responsibility to comply with installation clearances specified on the
model/serial rating plate.
•
For proper operation of a gas appliance, the air necessary for the combustion of the gas must be
able to flow into the room naturally. The air must flow into the room directly through openings in the
outside walls. These openings must have an unobstructed cross-section not less than 2m3/h for each
kw of power (see total power in kw on the appliance).
•
This opening must be constructed so that it will not be obstructed from inside or outside, and
not be constructed close to the floor. The opening is recommended to be on the side opposite to that
on which the flue gases are discharged.
•
The range should be located for convenient use in the kitchen.
•
Recessed installations must provide complete enclosure of the sides and rear of the range.

Installation Instructions
Gas Connection
Explosion Hazard
Use a new CSA International approved gas supply line.
Install a shut-off valve.
Securely tighten all gas connections.
If connected to LP, have a qualified person make sure gas pressure does not exceed 14" (36
cm) water column.
Examples of a qualified person include: licensed heating personnel, authorized gas company
personnel, and authorized service personnel.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
This appliance is outfitted from the factory to be used with ONLY one type of gas. This range is to be
connected with gas supply line. The gas connection is a male ½” BSP and is located roughly 2 ¼”
from the right and 22” from the ground. The hose needs to be free of kinks or other deformation that
would inhibit its ability to supply gas to the unit or susceptible to a gas leak. Line should also be free
from contact with a moving part such as a drawer, so that it does not become obstructed or damaged.
INSTALLING THE PRESSURE REGULATOR
• This appliance is set for natural gas and is designed to operate at 5” water column pressure. The
gas supply is required to provide a minimum of 4” to a maximum of 14” water column pressure to the
appliance regulator.

The gas supply line must be equipped with an approved manual shut-off valve. The shut-
off valve must be in an easily accessible location in the same room as the appliance. Do not
block access to the shutoff valve. Be sure you know how and where to shut off the gas
supply to the range.
1) The gas inlet is located 6” down from the top of the appliance at the rear on the right side and
2 ½” in from the right hand side of the appliance. Make gas connection through rear wall, or on
cabinet floor at rear. Install the house gas supply at least 1” from the back wall.
2) When installing, fit a safety valve at the end of the pipeline. The appliance leaves the factory
tested and set for natural gas. Make sure that the type of gas to be supplied to the appliance is
the same as that shown on the label affixed to the rear of the appliance. (See Figure 12)
3) Make the connection to the gas system using a rigid ½” or ¾” metal pipe and regulation unions, or
with a stainless steel hose complying with the local standard. If metal hoses are used, take care
that they do not come into contact with mobile parts and are not crushed.
4) The gas intake connection of the appliance has a “male thread.” When making the connection,
take care not to apply stresses of any kind to the appliance. Over- tightening may crack the
regulator resulting in a gas leak and possible fire or explosion.
Figure 12
5) Once regulator is in place, open the shutoff valve in the gas supply line. Wait a few minutes for
gas to move through the gas line.
6) After connecting the appliance to the gas supply, make sure all burners knobs are in the OFF
position and check the system for leaks with a manometer. If a manometer is not available, turn
on the gas supply and use a liquid leak detector (or soap and water) at all joints and connections
to check for leaks.
TESTING FOR LEAKS
Do not use a flame to check for leaks from gas connections. Checking for leaks with a flame may
result in a fire or explosion.
•
Tighten all connections if necessary to prevent gas leakage in the range or supply line.
•
Check alignment of control knob valves after connecting the range to the gas supply to be
sure the range manifold pipe has not moved. A misalignment could cause the valve stems to rub on
the control panel, resulting in a gas leak at the valve.
•
Disconnect this range and its individual manual shutoff valve from the gas supply piping
system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa or
14" water column).
•
Isolate the range from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff
valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less
than 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa or 14" water column).
ASSEMBLY OF THE BURNERS
The electrode of the electronic ignition system is positioned above the surface of the burner base. Do
not remove a burner cap or touch the electrode of a burner while another is turned on. Damage or
electrical shock may occur.
1. Place burner heads over the burner base.
Make sure the hole in the burner head is

gas line may cause an orange flame at
first, but this will soon disappear.
−
If the flames are too small or fluttered,
open the valve more than the original
setting.
2) Turn the range burner knob to “LO”
−
while observing the flame.
If the flames are too large, close the
valve more than the original setting.
3) Adjustments must be made with two
other burners in operation on a medium
setting. This prevents the upper row of
flames from being set too low, resulting
in the flame being extinguished when
other burners are turned on.
Figure 22
Figure 23
TESTING FLAME STABILITY
Test 1——Turn the knob from “HI” to “LO” quickly. If the upper row of flames goes out at this setting,
increase the flame size and test again.
Test 2——With the burner on “LO”, open and close the cabinet door under the range. If the flame is
extinguished by the air currents created by the door movement, increase the flame height and test
again.
D. FLAME RE-CHECK
After the adjustment is made, turn all burners off. Ignite each burner individually. Observe the flame
at the “HI” position. Rotate the knob to the lowest setting and be sure that the flame size decreases
as the knob is rotated counter-clockwise.
Adjust the height of top burner flames. The range “low” burner flame should be a steady blue flame
approximately ¼" (0.64 cm) high.
Once the conversion has been completed and has passed testing, fill out the conversion
sticker and include your name, organization and the date conversion is made. Apply the
sticker near the appliance gas inlet opening to alert others in the future that this appliance has
been converted. If converting back to Natural Gas, please remove the sticker so others know
that the appliance is set to use its original gas.

BEFORE MAKING THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION, MAKE SURE THAT:
•
The safety circuit-breaker and the electrical system are able to with stand the load of the
appliance. See rating label on back of range.
•
Rating plate is located on back of range should you need to verify any of the electrical
requirements.
•
The power supply system has a ground connection in good working order in accordance with the
regulations in force.
•
The electrical socket is easily accessible with the appliance installed. In all cases, the power
supply lead must be positioned so that it does not reach a temperature of 50oC above the room
temperature at any point.
•
The manufacturer is not liable for any direct or indirect damage caused by faulty installation or
connection. It is therefore necessary that all installation and connection operations are carried out by
qualified personnel complying with the local and general regulations in force.
CONNECTION OF THE RANGE WIRES TO THE MAINS
1) This appliance is equipped with the following wires:
•
Two black wires (L1 and L2 - Live)
•
One yellow /green (Ground)
2) Follow the diagram below to know how to connect the freestanding range wires to the
electrical main wires of the home. (See Figure 24)
3) The two black wires can be connected to the electrical main wires of the home in one of the
following three configurations:
•
Configuration 1: L1 to L1 and L2 to L2
•
Configuration 2: L1 to L1 and L2 to L3
•
Configuration 3: L1 to L2 and L2 to L3
Figure 24
4) Never use reductions, shunts, or adaptors which can cause overheating or burning.
5) After carrying out the connection to the mains, check that the supplying cable does not come
into contact with parts subject to heating.
Surface Cooking
Flame Size
• For most cooking, start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower one to complete the
process. The size and type of utensil used and the amount of food being cooked will influence the
setting needed for cooking.
• For deep fat frying, use a thermometer and adjust the surface control knob accordingly. If the fat is
too cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy. If the fat is too hot, the food will brown so quickly
that the center will be undercooked. Do not attempt to deep fry too much food at once as the food will
neither brown nor cook properly.
•
Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the utensil. A higher flame simply wastes heat
and energy, and increases your risk of being burned by the flame. (See Figure 25)
Figure 25
Proper Burner Adjustments
• The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue and hardly
visible in a well-lighted room. Each cone of flame should be steady and sharply defined.
• Adjust or clean burner if flame is yellow-orange. To clean burners, see instructions under “Care and
Cleaning”. (See Figures 22 and 23)

Surface Cooking Utensils
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic
wrappings on top of the appliance when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders,
towels or wood spoons could catch fire if placed too close to a flame.
Note: Always use a utensil for its intended purpose. Follow manufacturer’s instructions. Some
utensils were not made to be used in the oven or on the cooking surface.
Regardless of size, always select a utensil that is suitable for the amount and type of food being
prepared. Select a burner and flame size appropriate to the pan. Never allow flames to extend
beyond the outer edge of the pan.
For lower gas consumption and better efficiency: Use only flat-bottomed pans of dimensions
suitable for the burners, as shown in the table below. Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the
bottom of the pan. There should be no gaps between the pan and ruler. As soon as a liquid comes
to a boil take care to turn the flame down to a level that will just keep it simmering. (See Figure 29)
Figure 29
Specialty pans (lobster pots and pressure cookers) may be used but must conform to the
recommended cookware requirements.
During cooking processes involving fats or oils, watch your foods carefully because these
substances may catch fire if brought to high temperatures.
