Gas supply line: Provide a gas supply line
of 3/4" rigid pipe to the range location.
With L.P. gas, piping or tubing size can be
1/2" minimum. A smaller size pipe on
longer runs may result in insufficient gas
supply. Usually, L.P. gas suppliers
determine the size and materials used in
the system.
Pipe-joint compounds made for use with
L.P. gas must be used on pipe threads
only.
Flexible metal appliance connector: If
local codes permit, a new CSA designcertified, 1/2" or 3/4" I.D., flexible metal
appliance connector is recommended for
connecting range to the gas supply line.
A 1/2" male pipe thread nipple is needed

Cooktop and oven burners use electronic
ignitors in place of standing pilots. When
a cooktop control knob is turned to the
“LITE” position, the system creates a
spark to light the burner. This sparking
continues until the control knob is turned
to the desired setting.
When the oven control is turned to the
desired setting, a hot surface ignitor
heats to a bright orange and ignites the
gas. No sparking occurs. The glow bar
remains on while
the burner operates.

Push in and turn each surface
unit control knob to “LITE” position. The
flame should light within 4 seconds. Turn
control knob to “HI” position after burner
lights.
Check each cooktop burner for
proper flame. The small inner
cone should have a very distinct
blue flame 1/4" to 1/2" long. The
outer cone is not as distinct as
the inner cone. If the flame is
noisy or blowing, it is getting
too much air. If the flame is soft and lazy,
it is not getting enough air. Turn each
surface burner control knob to “OFF”
position. Adjust air shutter if needed.
If surface burner air shutters need
adjusting:
4 screws
a. Remove control knobs and 4 screws
that attach control panel to range

Turn the valve screw to obtain the
smallest flame that will not go out when
the control of a cold burner is quickly
turned from “HI” to “LO”. Repeat for
other cooktop burners as needed.
21.
Check the oven burner for
proper flame. The flame should be 1/2"
long, with inner cone of bluish-green, and
outer mantle of dark blue, and should be
clean and soft in character. No yellow tips
(not enough air), blowing or lifting (too
much air) of flame should occur.
