30" (76.2 CM) AND 36" (91.4 CM) GAS BUILT-IN COOKTOP

30" (76.2 CM) AND 36" (91.4 CM) GAS BUILT-IN COOKTOP
30" (76.2 CM) AND 36" (91.4 CM) GAS BUILT-IN COOKTOP
Type of Gas
Natural Gas:
This cooktop is design-certified by CSA International for use with Natural gas or,
after proper conversion, for use with LP gas.
A 120 volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 15-amp, fused electrical circuit is required. A timedelay fuse or circuit breaker is also recommended. It is recommended that a
separate circuit serving only this cooktop be provided.
This cooktop is factory set for use with Natural gas. If converting to LP gas, see the
following “LP Gas Conversion” section. The model/serial rating plate located on the
underside of the cooktop base has information on the types of gas that can be used.
If the types of gas listed do not include the type of gas available, check with the
local gas supplier.
LP Gas Conversion:
Conversion must be done by a qualified service technician.
No attempt shall be made to convert the cooktop from the gas specified on the
model/serial rating plate for use with a different gas without consulting the serving
gas supplier. See the Gas Conversion instructions provided in the package
containing literature.
Gas Supply Line
Provide a gas supply line of ³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) rigid pipe to the cooktop location. A
smaller size pipe on longer runs may result in insufficient gas supply. Pipe-joint
compounds that resist the action of LP gas must be used. Do not use TEFLON®†
tape. With LP gas, piping or tubing size should be ¹⁄₂" minimum. Usually, LP gas
suppliers determine the size and materials used in the system.
● 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 cooktop opening, such as an
adjacent cabinet. 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 cooktop.

IMPORTANT: If installing a range hood or microwave hood combination above
the range, follow the range hood or microwave hood combination installation
instructions for dimensional clearances above the cooktop surface.
NOTES: After making the countertop cutout, some installations may require
notching down the base cabinet side walls to clear the cooktop base. To avoid this
modification, use a base cabinet with sidewalls wider than the cutout.
If cabinet has a drawer, a 4" (10.2 cm) depth clearance from the countertop to the
top of the drawer (or other obstruction) in base cabinet is required. The drawer
depth may need to be shortened to avoid interfering with the regulator.
