SAFETY PRACTICES AND PRECAUTIONS
When properly cared for, your new DCS Appliance has been designed to be a safe, reliable cooking appliance.
When using this restaurant caliber appliance, use it with extreme care, as this type appliance provides intense
heat and can increase the accident potential. Basic safety precautions must be followed when using kitchen
appliances, including the following:
■ Read the Use and Care Manual, which came with this appliance, thoroughly before using your new appliance.
This will help to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
■ Begin by insuring proper installation and servicing. Follow the installation instructions in this manual. Be sure
to have a qualified technician install and ground this appliance before using.
■ Have the installer show you where the gas supply shut-off valve is located so you will know how and where to
turn off the gas to the appliance.
■ If you smell gas, the installer has not done a proper job of checking for leaks. You can have a small leak and
therefore a faint gas smell if the connections are not completely tight. Finding a gas leak is not a “do-ityourself ” procedure. Some leaks can only be found with the burner control in the “ON” position and for your
protection it must be done by a qualified service technician.
■ If by some chance a burner goes out and gas escapes, open a window or a door to let the room air out. Do not
attempt to use the appliance until the gas has had time to dissipate. Follow the instructions on page 1, “For
your safety – if you smell gas”.
■ This appliance has been factory assembled for natural or LP gas. It should be correctly adjusted from the factory
for the type of gas that is used.
■ Do not repair or replace any part of this appliance unless it is specifically recommended in this manual. All
other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
■ Children should not be left alone or unattended in an area where appliances are in use. They should never be
allowed to turn knobs, push buttons, sit or stand on, and/or touch any part of an appliance while in operation.
■ Children in walkers, or children crawling can be attracted to the round oven door handle and may grab and
open the oven door. This can result in injury from the door being pulled open on a child, or severe burns if the
oven is in use and hot.
WARNING:
Do not store items of interest to children above or at the back of any appliance. Children could be seriously injured
if they should climb onto the appliance to reach these items.
■ Never store anything in the oven or on the cooktop. Flammable materials can catch fire, plastic items may melt
or ignite and other types of items could be ruined.
■ Do not hang articles from any part of the appliance or place anything against the oven. Some fabrics are quite
flammable and may catch on fire.
■ If the appliance is near a window be certain the curtains do not blow over or near the cooktop burners; they
could catch on fire.
■ Do not use water on grease fires. Turn all burners “OFF”, then smother fire with baking soda or use a dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ Never let clothing, pot holders, or other flammable materials come in contact with, or too close to, any burner or
burner grate until it has cooled. Fabric may ignite and result in personal injury.
■ Be certain to use only dry pot holders: moist or damp pot holders on hot surfaces may cause burns from steam.
Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth in place of pot holders. Do not let pot holders touch hot burners, or
burner grates.

SAFETY PRACTICES AND PRECAUTIONS
■ For personal safety, wear proper apparel. Loose fitting garments or hanging sleeves should never be worn while
using this appliance. Some synthetic fabrics are highly flammable and should not be worn while cooking.
■ Do not use aluminum foil to line any part of the oven or cooktop. This will cause heat to be trapped underneath
it. This trapped heat can upset the cooking performance and can damage the finish of the oven or the cooktop
parts.
WARNING! NEVER
cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom or cover an
entire rack with materials such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks airflow through the oven and may
cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may also trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
■ This appliance is for cooking. Never use the oven or cooktop to warm or heat a room. This could damage the
cooktop or oven parts.
WARNING! 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.
■ When using the cooktop: Do not touch the burner grates or the immediate surrounding area. Areas adjacent to
the burners may become hot enough to cause burns.
■ When using the oven: Do not touch the interior surfaces of the oven, the exterior area immediately surrounding
the door or the back trim. The surfaces directly above the oven door may be hot if the oven has been operated
with the door open, or if something has prevented the door from sealing. Always use caution when pulling out
the drip trays (GD & GL models only) when the oven has been on, or is currently on. The drip trays get hot when
the oven is on. Do not remove drip trays until they are cool.
■ Never leave the cooktop unattended when using high flame settings. When cooking with high flame settings,
boil overs may cause smoking and greasy spill overs may ignite. More importantly, if the burner flames are
smothered by a severe boil over which effects the igniter, unburned gas will escape into the room.
■ Only certain types of glass, heat-proof glass-ceramic, ceramic, earthen ware, or other glazes utensils are suitable
for cooktop use. This type of utensil may break with sudden temperature changes. Use only on low or medium
flames settings according to the manufacturer’s directions. The use of professional utensils is recommended.
■ Do not heat unopened food containers; a build up of pressure may cause the container to burst.
■ During cooking, set the burner control so that the flame heats only the bottom of the pan and does not extend
beyond the bottom of the pan. This could heat and/or melt the handles, and may increase cooking time.
■ Always use utensils that have flat bottoms large enough to cover the burner. The use of undersized utensils will
expose a portion of the flame to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing.
■ To minimize burns, ignition of flammable materials and unintentional spill overs, position handles of utensils
inward so they do not extend over adjacent work areas, cooking areas, or the edge of the cooktop.
■ Hold the handle of the pan to prevent movement of the utensil when stirring or turning food.
■ Grease is flammable. Let hot grease cool before attempting to handle it. Avoid letting grease deposits collect
around the cooktop burners. Clean after each use or boil over.
■ For proper lighting and performance of the cooktop burners, keep the burner ports clean. It may be necessary to
clean these when there is a boil over or when the burner does not light, even though the electronic igniters
click.
■ Do not use the grill for cooking excessively fatty meats or products which promote flare-ups. Do not use
cooking utensils on the grill.
5
SAFETY PRACTICES AND PRECAUTIONS
■ Clean the cooktop with caution. Avoid steam burns; do not use a wet sponge or cloth to clean the cooktop while
it is hot. Some cleaners produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface. Follow directions provided by the
cleaner manufacturer.
■ Be sure all the range and/or cooktop controls are turned off and the appliance is cool before using any type of
aerosol cleaner on or around the appliance. The chemical that produces the spraying action could, in the
presence of heat, ignite or cause metal parts to corrode.
■ Place oven racks in desired position while the oven is cool. If a rack must be moved while the oven is hot, do not
let the pot holders contact the hot interior of the oven.
■ Use care when opening the oven door; let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing foods.
■ Do not rub, damage, move or remove the door gasket. It is essential for a good seal during baking. Wash the
gasket with hot water only.
■ Clean the ventilator hood and filters above the range or cooktop frequently so grease from cooking vapors does
not accumulate on them. The filters can be cleaned in a dishwasher or DishDrawer. Follow directions provided
by ventilation manufacturer for cleaning.
■ Turn the ventilator “OFF” in case of fire or when intentionally “flaming” liquor or other spirits on the cooktop. The
blower, if in operation, could unsafely spread the flames.
■ DO NOT obstruct the flow of combustion or ventilation air to the appliance. Be sure a fresh air supply is
available.
■ For safety reasons and to avoid damage to the appliance never sit, stand, or lean on the oven door or cooking
surface.
■ Service should only be done by authorized technicians. Technicians must disconnect the power supply before
servicing this appliance.
WARNING:
California Proposition 65 - The burning of gas cooking fuel generates some by-products which are known by the
State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm. California law requires businesses to warn customers of
potential exposure to such substances. To minimize exposure to these substances, always operate this unit
according to the instructions contained in this booklet and provide good ventilation to the room when cooking with
gas.
RECOMMENDATIONS ON HOOK-UP TO GAS SUPPLY:
A manual valve must be installed external to the appliance, in an accessible location from the front for the
purpose of shutting off the gas supply. The supply line must not protrude beyond the back of the unit. Make
sure the gas supply is turned off at the wall valve before connecting the appliance.
The gas supply connections should be made by a qualified technician and in accordance with local codes or
ordinances. In the absence of a local code, the installation must conform to the latest edition of National Fuel
Gas Code ANSI Z223.1.

PLANNING THE INSTALLATION
RECOMMENDED INSTALLATION INSTRUCTION
Install components in the following order:
A. Vent Hood
B. Backguard System (sold separately)
C. Range
1. Locate and level range according to range installation instructions.
2. Measure distance from floor to top of island trim on range, adding 1/8” for backguard clearance.
3. Transfer this measurement to the wall. This will mark the bottom of your backguard.
4. From this line measure 28” up wall to mark the top of a 30” backguard. This is the minimum height that the
bottom of your vent hood can be installed.
5. Follow vent hood manufacturer’s installation instructions to install vent hood.
6. Follow backguard installation instructions to install backguard.
7. Connect gas and electric connections and slide range into position.
NOTE:
A manual gas supply valve must be installed. See page 15.
UNPACKING AND HANDLING
CAUTION:
Proper equipment and adequate manpower must be used in moving the range to avoid damage to the unit or the
floor. The unit is heavy and rests on adjustable steel legs.
WARNING:
DO NOT lift range by the oven door handles or drip pan handle!!
WARNING:
DO NOT remove the grill or griddle assemblies!!
MOVING AND PLACING THE RANGE
The ranges have shipping weights varying from 420 lbs. to 630 lbs less approx. 50lbs. after removal of packing
material. It is recommended that the door(s), grates, and front kick panel be removed to facilitate handling. This
will reduce the weight for ease of handling.
It may be necessary to remove the oven doors and knobs to pass through some doorways. With the doors and
knobs removed, a 29-1/16” (RDT-36/48) 29-3/8” (RDT-305) wide opening is required. Without removing the door,
a 31-1/2” (RDT-36/48) or 30” (RDT-305) wide opening is required. Remove the outer carton and packing material
from the shipping base.

UNPACKING AND HANDLING
MOVING AND PLACING THE RANGE (cont.)
Electric and gas connections should be made before the
range is slid into the cabinet opening (see pages 14~18). If
installing a full backguard with the range, it should also be
installed before the range is placed in its final position (refer
to pages 8 & 17). For proper performance, the professional
range should be level. To achieve a flush fit of the range to
adjoining countertops, it will be necessary to have level
cabinets (front to back, and left to right across opening of the
range). After checking the countertops for level and before
sliding the range into place, measure the distance from the
floor to the top of the counter work surface in the rear left
and right corners. Adjust the corresponding rear corner of
the range to an equal height of the counter, as the rear
leveling legs are not accessible once the range is pushed into
place. Once the range is in place, the front leg levelers can be
accessed to level the front of the range. Replace the kick
panel and oven doors by reversing the procedure described
previously. It is important that the two screws retaining the
kick panel are secure to prevent accidental access to live
electrical components and wires (fig. 2).

CAUTION:
Ventilation hoods and blowers are designed for use with single wall ducting. However, some local building codes or
inspectors may require double wall ducting and/or damper. Consult local building codes and/or local agencies,
before starting, to ensure that hood and duct installation will meet local requirements.
Hood blower speeds should be variable to reduce noise and loss of heated or air conditioned household air
when maximum ventilation is not required. Normally, the maximum blower speed is only required when using
the grill.
For best smoke elimination, the lower edge of the hood should be installed a minimum of 30" to a maximum of
36" above the range cooking surface, (page 14 & 15). If the hood contains any combustible materials (i.e. a
wood covering) it must be a minimum of 36" above the cooking surface.
Due to a high volume of ventilation air, a source of make-up air (outside replacement air) is recommended. This
is particularly important for tightly sealed and insulated homes. A reputable heating and ventilating contractor
should be consulted.
12
INSTALLING ANTI-TIP DEVICE
All ranges must have an anti-tip device correctly
installed as per the following instructions. If you pull
the range out from the wall for any reason, make sure
that the device is properly engaged when you push
the range back against the wall. If it is not, there is a
possible risk of the range tipping over and causing
injury if you or a child stand, sit or lean on an open
oven door.

RECOMMENDED GROUNDING METHOD
This appliance is factory equipped with a power supply cord with a four-prong grounding plug. It must be
plugged into a mating grounding, type receptacle, connected to a correctly polarized 120/240 volt circuit. If the
circuit does not have a grounding type receptacle, it is the responsibility and obligation of the installer to have
the existing receptacle changed to a properly grounded and polarized receptacle in accordance with all
applicable local codes and ordinances by a qualified electrician. In the absence of local codes and ordinances,
the receptacle replacement shall be in accordance with the National Electrical Code.
Note:
The fourth prong (round grounding pin) should not, under any circumstances, be cut or removed.
WARNING!
The range is equipped for use with an electrical supply which uses a separate
grounding conductor (4 wire system). If this range must be connected to an
electrical system which utilizes a single conductor for ground and neutral (3
wire system), the grounding jumper at the terminal block must be
connected. The grounding jumper is located behind the front kickpanel.

GAS HOOK-UP
GAS REQUIREMENTS
Verify the type of gas supplied to the location. The range is shipped from the factory set up and adjusted for
Natural Gas or LP (propane), depending on the specific model ordered. Verify that the range is compatible
with gas supply at the installation site before proceeding further. Return the range to the dealer if the unit
is not set for the gas supplied at the site.
NATURAL GAS
■ Connection: 1/2” NPT Minimum 5/8” dia. flex line.
■ Supply Pressure: 6” to 9” W.C.
LP GAS
■ Connection: 1/2” NPT Minimum 5/8 dia. flex line.
■ Supply Pressure: 11” to 14” W.C.
A regulator is required at the LP source to provide a maximum of 14” W.C. to the range regulator.
HOOK-UP TO GAS SUPPLY
A manual valve must be installed external to the appliance, in an accessible location from the front for the
purpose of shutting off the gas supply. The supply line must not protrude beyond the back of the unit. Make
sure the gas supply is turned off at the wall valve before connecting the appliance.
The gas supply connections should be made by a qualified technician and in accordance with local codes or
ordinances. In the absence of a local code, the installation must conform to the latest edition of National Fuel
Gas Code ANSI Z223.1.
CAUTION:
The appliance must be isolated from the building’s 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
(3.5kPa.). The appliance and its individual shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system
during any pressure testing of the system at the test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5kPa.). When checking the
manifold gas pressure, the inlet pressure to the regulator should be at least 7.0” W.C. for natural gas or 12.0” for LP.
NOTE:
The flex line for the gas supply must be metal and be approved
by an approved certifying agency (AGA, CGA, or UL). Never use
a hose made of rubber or other synthetic material, as the heat
may cause the hose to melt and develop leaks.
Manual Shut-Off

Easily Accessible
When hooking up the gas supply from range rear hard
pipe to wall hard pipe, installation length of flex line
between range/wall hard piping must accommodate range
being pulled from wall for cleaning or servicing purposes.
When range is pulled from wall, no strain should occur at
range or wall hard pipe connections (fig. 17).

TEST AND ADJUSTMENTS
WARNING :
For warranty coverage, DCS requires that burner adjustments be made by a
qualified technician at the time of installation. Extreme care should be used
when adjustments are made after installation. IMPROPER OR LACK OF
ADJUSTMENT WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY.
COOKTOP BURNER
1-1/2"
COOKTOP BURNERS
The cooktop burners are not adjustable. Proper operation is achieved when
the correct orifices for gas supply are installed at the factory, based on
model ordered.
FIG. 18
OFF
When installing the burner port ring, be sure that the two locating pins in
the bottom side of the brass port ring are properly aligned with the locating
notch and center holes on the top side of the simmer ring. Incorrect
alignment will produce a potentially dangerous flame and poor burner
performance.
Note:
No air shutter adjustment is possible on the cooktop burners. Burner flames
should be blue and stable with no yellow-tipping (some yellow-tipping is normal
with LP gas), excessive noise, or lifting of flame from the burner (Fig. 18).
LITE
HI
SIM
LO
FIG. 19
COOKTOP BURNER LIGHTING NOTE:
The cooktop burners have an infinite number of heat settings and there are no fixed positions on the control
knobs between HI and LO. To turn the cooktop burner on, push in on the control knob and turn it counterclockwise to the “LITE” position. An audible clicking sound will be heard. When the gas has been ignited by the
electronic spark igniter, turn the knob to the desired setting (Fig. 19).
Note:
The igniter will continue to click until a flame is present. If the cooktop burner does not ignite, check the spark igniter by
listening for a clicking sound. If you do not hear the igniter click, turn off the burner. Check for a tripped circuit breaker,
blown fuse, or poor wire connection to the igniter.
WARNING:
When turning on any cooktop burner, be sure to stop at the “LITE” position before turning the burner to a flame
setting for cooking. If the burner is not lit and it is turned beyond the “LITE” position, to HI, MEDIUM, or LO, there
will be a burst of flame when the burner does light. This could cause burns or damage to the surrounding
countertop.

TEST AND ADJUSTMENTS
THIS ADJUSTMENT SECTION APPLIES TO THE GRIDDLE,
GRILL AND OVEN BURNERS.
Check for the proper burner flame characteristics and adjust air shutters
if necessary (fig. 20). Each valve and air shutter is individually tested and
adjusted prior to shipment. Normally adjustment is not required,
however, vibration during transit, gas conversion or variations in the
local gas supply may make minor adjustments necessary. Burner flames
should be blue and stable with no yellow tips, excessive noise or lifting
of the flame from the burner. If any of these conditions exist, check that
the air shutter or burner ports are not blocked. If this condition persists,
adjust the air shutter as required. If the flame is too yellow, indicating
insufficient air, adjust the shutter counterclockwise to increase air inlet.
If the flame is noisy or tends to lift away from the burner, indicating too
much air, turn the shutter clockwise to reduce air. The griddle and oven
flames should be 1-1/2" to 2". The grill burner flames should be 3/8” to
5/8” (fig. 21).
