• Never modify or alter the construction of a cooktop by removing panels, wire covers or any other part of the product.

• 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 cooktop 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 cooktop. Flammable materials may explode and result in fire or property damage.

• Do not store items of interest to children in the cabinets above the cooktop. 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 cooktop. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance.

Children climbing on the cooktop to reach items could be seriously injured.

4

• DO NOT TOUCH THE COOKTOP SURFACE, THE BURNERS, GRATES OR ANY AREAS

NEAR THEM. Surface burners or cooktop may be hot even though flames are not visible. Areas near surface burners or cooktop 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. Among these areas are the cooktop and surfaces facing the cooktop.

• 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.

Y ou 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 cooktop can result in serious injuries and also cause damage to the cooktop.

5

• 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 smoking 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 cooktop, 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 cooktop service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for cooktop 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 cooktop or burners because the covers may cause overheating. Air will be blocked from the burner and cause combustion problems.

6

• 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.

• Use the proper pan sizes. This cooktop 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 cooktop. 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.

Getting Started

Grounding Instructions

• This cooktop features a pilotless electric ignition for energy savings and reliability. It operates on a 120 volt, 60 Hz power supply.

A separate circuit, protected by a 15 amp time delay fuse or circuit breaker, is required.

For personal safety, the cooktop must be properly grounded. A properly-grounded 3prong receptacle (see Figure 1) should be located 12” below the countertop and within reach of the cooktop’s four-foot power cord.

For maximum safety, the power cord must be plugged into an electrical outlet that is correctly polarized and properly grounded. Figure 1

• See the Installation Instructions packaged with this cooktop for complete installation and grounding instructions.

DO NOT operate the cooktop using a 2-prong adapter or an extension cord. If a 2-prong wall receptacle is the only available outlet, it is the personal responsibility of the consumer to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician.

• This appliance is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug for your protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded receptacle. To avoid fire hazard or electrical shock, DO NOT cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug and DO NOT use an adapter plug, an extension cord, or remove grounding prong from electrical power cord. Failure to follow this warning can cause serious injury, fire or death.

• Severe shock, or damage to the cooktop may occur if the cooktop is not installed by a qualified installer or electrician.

9

• Any additions, changes or conversions required in order for this appliance to satisfactorily meet the application needs 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 the instructions could result in serious injury or property damage. The qualified agency performing this work assumes responsibility for the conversion.

Liquefied Petroleum (Propane) Gas

Conversion

• This appliance can be used with Natural Gas and Propane (LP) Gas. It is shipped from the factory for use with natural gas.

• A kit for converting to LP gas is supplied with your cooktop. The kit is marked “FOR LP/ PROPANE

GAS CONVERSION”. For conversion, follow the installation instructions which are in this manual.

• 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.

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.

10

• Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the utensil (see Figure 2). A higher flame simply wastes heat and energy, and increases your risk of being burned by the flame.

Figure 2

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.

Placement of Burner Heads and Caps

For all burners:

• Place a burner cap on each burner head (see

Figure 4), matching the cap size to the head size. 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.

• Make sure each burner cap is properly aligned and level (see Figure 5).

• Turn the burner on to determine if it will light. If the burner does not light, contact a qualified service center. Do not service the sealed burner yourself.

Figure 4

Figure 5

Surface Cooking Utensils

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.

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.

3

/hfor 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, or constructed close to the floor. The opening is recommended to be on the side opposite to that on which the flue gases are discharged.

• Avoid placing cabinetry directly above cooktop when possible. If cabinetry is used above cooking surface, use cabinets no more than 13″ deep (see Figure 6).

• Working areas adjacent to the cooktop should have 18″ minimum clearance between cooktop and bottom of range hood. The range hood must be connected directly to flues or to the outside. countertop and cabinet bottom.

Make sure the wall coverings, countertop and cabinets around the cooktop can withstand heat (up to 200º F) generated by the cooktop.

• Maintain 30″ minimum clearance between cooktop surface and cabinets installed above the cooktop.

Figure 6

• If range hood is installed above cooktop, maintain a 30” minimum clearance between

• A range hood with minimum 350 CFM that projects at least 5” beyond front of cabinets can reduce risk of burns caused by reaching over heated surface units.

18

Provide an Adequate Gas and Electrical Supply

• Installation must comply with local codes. In the absence of local codes, the gas cooktop must comply with the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1

—latest edition in the United States, or in

Canada CAN/CGA B149.1, and CAN/CGA B149.2, and the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No.

WARNING: 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.

• This cooktop 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 6” to a maximum of 14” water column pressure to the cooktop regulator.

• If the cooktop is converted for liquid pretroleum (LP) gas, the LP gas supply is required to provide a minimum of10” to a maximum of 14” water column to the cooktop regulator.

• The pressure regulator must be connected in series with the manifold of the cooktop and must remain in series with the supply line regardless the type of gas being used.

22

• The gas supply line must be equipped with an approved manual shut-off valve. In an easily accessible location in the same room as the cooktop. Do not block access to the shutoff valve. Be sure you know how and where to shut off the gas supply to the cooktop. Install the electrical outlet 12” below the countertop (see Figure 13).

Figure 13

1) The gas inlet is located on the bottom of the cooktop at the rear and 8 ½” from the right hand edge of the cooktop. 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 tap 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 underside of the cooktop.

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. This must also be checked if the cooktop is to be combined with an oven.

6) After connecting the cooktop 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.

Warning - 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 cooktop or supply line.

Check alignment of control knob valves after connecting the cooktop to the gas supply to be sure the cooktop 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 cooktop and its individual manual shutoff valve from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures greater than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa or

14" water column).

Isolate the cooktop 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 psig (3.5 kPa or 14" water column).

Electrical Connection

Before making the connection, make sure that:

1) The safety circuit-breaker and the electrical system are able to with stand the load of the appliance.

2) The power supply system has a ground connection in good working order in accordance with the regulations in force.

3) 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 50 o

C above the room temperature at any point.

4) If installed above a built-in oven, the cooktop cable must not touch the oven below (see Figure 15).

TOOLS YOU WILL NEED FOR CONVERSION

Wrench

7mm Nut Driver Safety Glasses

Small Flat-head Screwdriver (2 to 2.4 mm or 3/32″ tip size, 60 mm long)

A. ADJUST THE REGULATOR a) Disconnect all electrical power, at the main circuit breaker or fuse box. b) Shut off the gas supply to the cooktop by closing the manual shut-off valve. c) Adjust the pressure regulator by doing the following:

1) Unscrew the regulator cap with the wrench (see Figure 19).

Figure 19

27

2) This is how the retainer pin looks for Natural Gas usage (see Figure 20).

Figure 20

3) Remove the retainer pin (see Figure 21).

Figure 21

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 22).

Figure 22

28

5) Screw the regulator cap back into the regulator and re-attach the regulator to the nipple and flare union (see Figures 14 and 23).

Figure 23

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.

IMPORTANT: Carefully read and observe each nozzle label for correct location (see Figure 18).

3) Install the proper nozzles in the exact locations as noted in the illustrations above (see Figure

24).

4) Replace the burner bases, heads, caps and top grates. Make sure burner caps are properly seated on the burner head (see Figure 17).

C. ADJUST BURNER FLAMES

1) Turn all burners on highest setting and check the flames. They should be blue in color and may have some yellow tipping at the ends of the flame when using LP gas. Foreign particles in the gas line may cause an orange flame at first, but this will soon disappear.

2)

Turn the cooktop burner knob to “LO” while observing the flame.

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.

30

- To adjust the flame, remove the knobs, insert a screwdriver through the access hole in valve shaft as shown (see Figure 25). Make the adjustment by slowly turning the screw until flame appearance is correct.

Figure 25

- If the flames are too small or fluttered, open the valve more than the original setting.

- If the flames are too large, close the valve more than the original setting.

D. 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 cooktop. If the flame is extinguished by the air currents created by the door movement, increase the flame height and test again.

E. FLAME RE-CHECK

After the adjustment is made, turn all burners off. Ignite each burner individually. Observe the flame a t 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.

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 cooktop 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.
