All other servicing should be done only by a qualified technician. This may reduce the risk of personal injury and damage to the appliance. • Proper Installation – The range, when installed, must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70. In Canada, the range must be electrically grounded in accordance with Canadian Electrical Code. Be sure the range is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician. • Disconnect power before servicing. • Never modify or alter the construction of the appliance by removing panels, wire covers or any other part of the product. • Injuries may result from the misuse of appliance doors or drawers such as stepping, leaning, or sitting on the doors or drawers. • 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. • To eliminate the risk of burns or fire by • Avoid placing cabinetry directly above reaching over heated surface units, cabinet the appliance when possible. If cabinetry is storage space located above the surface units used above the cooking surface, use cabinets should be avoided. If cabinet storage is to be no more than 13″ deep. Make sure the wall provided, the risk can be reduced by installing coverings, countertop and cabinets around the a range hood or microwave hood combination appliance can withstand heat up to 200º F with minimum 400 CFM that projects (93°C) generated by the appliance.

If the types of with a different gas without consulting gas listed do not include the type of gas the serving gas supplier. GAS SUPPLY LINE: − Provide a gas supply line of ¾" (1.9 cm) rigid pipe to the range location. A smaller size pipe on longer runs may result in insufficient gas supply. Pipejoint compounds that resist the action of LP gas must be used. Do not use TEFLON®† tape. With LP gas, piping or tubing size must be ½" (1.3 cm) minimum. Usually, LP gas suppliers Figure 2 determine the size and materials used in the system. − Gas supply should be located near the opening for this appliance and be a minimum of 1” from the back wall. (See Figure 2) FLEXIBLE METAL APPLIANCE CONNECTOR: Never reuse old flexible connectors. The use of old flexible connectors can cause gas leakage and personal injury. Always use new flexible connectors when installing a gas appliance. To reduce the possibility of gas leakage, apply Teflon tape or a thread compound approved for use with LP or Natural gases to all threaded connections. − If local codes permit, a new CSA design-certified, 4 to 5 ft (122 to 152.4 cm) long, ½" (1.3 cm) or ¾" (1.9 cm) I.D., flexible metal appliance connector may be used for connecting range to the gas supply line. (See Figure 3) Figure 3 − A ½" (1.3 cm) male pipe thread is needed for connection to the female pipe threads of the inlet to the appliance pressure regulator. − Do not kink or damage the flexible metal tubing when moving the range. RIGID PIPE CONNECTION: − The rigid pipe connection requires a combination of pipe fittings to obtain an in-line connection to the range. The rigid pipe must be level with the range connection. All strains must be removed from the supply and fuel lines so range will be level and in line. (See Figure 4) Figure 4 MUST INCLUDE A SHUTOFF VALVE: − The supply line must be equipped with a manual shutoff valve. This valve should be located in the same room but external to the range in an easily accessible location. It should be in a location that allows ease of opening and closing. Do not block access to shutoff valve. The valve is for turning on or shutting off gas to the range. (See Figure 5) − Be sure you know where and how to shut off the gas supply to the range. Figure 5 GAS PRESSURE REGULATOR: − The pressure regulator must be connected in series with the manifold of the appliance and must remain in series with the supply line regardless the type of gas being used. − For proper operation, the gas pressure regulator supplied with this range must be used.

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 Figure 13 properly aligned with the electrode in the burner base. (See Figure 13) 2. Place the burner caps on the burner heads. Make sure that the burner caps are properly seated on the burner head. (See Figure 14) 3. Operation of the electric igniters should be tested after the range and supply line have been carefully checked for leaks and the range has been connected to the electrical power. To check igniters, push and turn a sounds), but only the burner turned to LITE will light. Figure 14 Liquefied Petroleum (Propane) Gas Conversion Failure to make the appropriate conversion can result in serious personal injury and property damage. The conversion must be performed by a qualified service technician in accordance with the kit instructions and all local codes and requirements. Failure to follow instructions could result in serious injury or property damage. The qualified agency performing this work assumes responsibility for the conversion. This appliance can be used with Natural Gas or LP/Propane Gas. It is shipped from the factory for use with Natural Gas. A kit for converting to LP gas is supplied with your appliance. The kit is marked "FOR LP/PROPANE GAS CONVERSION". When the range is converted for Liquid Petroleum (LP) Gas, the LP gas supply is required to provide a minimum of 10” to a maximum of 14” water column to the range regulator. A. ADJUST THE REGULATOR − Disconnect all electrical power at the main circuit breaker or fuse box. − Shut off the gas supply to the appliance by closing the manual shut-off valve. − Adjust the pressure regulator by doing the following: 1) Unscrew the regulator cap with the wrench. (See Figure 15) 4) Reverse the retainer pin and put back into the regulator cap. This is how the regulator pin looks for LP gas usage. (See Figure 18) Figure 15 2) This is how the retainer pin looks for Natural Gas usage. (See Figure 16) Figure 18 5) Screw the regulator cap back into the regulator and re-attach the regulator to the nipple and flare union. (See Figures 12 and 19) Figure 16 3) Remove the retainer pin. (See Figure 17) Figure 19 Figure 17 B. CHANGE BURNER NOZZLES INSTALLATION TIP: First remove all nozzles and then start replacing them. This will help to prevent the possibility that some may not be replaced. 1) Remove the burner grates, burner caps and burner heads. 2) Using a 7mm nut driver, remove the burner nozzles.

ADJUST BURNER FLAMES 4) To adjust the flame, remove the knobs; 1) Turn all burners on highest setting and insert a screwdriver through the access check the flames. They should be blue hole in valve shaft as shown. Make the in color and may have some yellow adjustment by slowly turning the screw tipping at the ends of the flame when until flame appearance is correct. (See using LP gas. Foreign particles in the Figures 22 and 23) 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. Electrical Connection Electrical Shock Hazard Do not use an adapter. Do not use an extension cord. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock. Electrical connection must be performed by a qualified service technician in accordance with the kit instructions and all local codes and requirements. • This appliance is not supplied with a plug and needs to be connected directly to the electrical mains. • If you wish to install this appliance with a plug, it must installed by a qualified service technician. The plug must be a 4-prong, 3-phase power plug that is designed specifically for ranges and ovens.

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) Location of the Burners 1. Auxiliary burner (Front right) - 5,000 BTU 2. Rapid burner ( Front left) – 8,500 BTU 3. Semi-rapid burners (Rear left and right) – 7,000 BTU 4.

The cap for each burner has an inner locating ring which centers the cap correctly on the burner head. Be sure that all the burner caps and burner heads are correctly placed BEFORE using your appliance. (See Figure 27) Figure 27 2) Make sure each burner cap is properly aligned and level. (See Figure 28) 3) Turn the burner on to determine if it will light. If the burner does not light, contact a qualified service center. Figure 28 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.
