Use a new AGA approved gas supply line.
Install a shut-off valve.
Securely tighten all gas connections.
If connected to LP, have a qualified person make sure gas pressure does not exceed water column rating specified in LP conversion kit. Examples of a qualified person include licensed heating personnel, authorized gas company personnel, and authorized service personnel.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
Important: Cooktop must be connected to a regulated gas supply.
This installation must conform with local codes and ordinances. In the absence of local codes, installation must conform with American National Standard,
National Fuel Gas Code ANSI 2223.1 - latest edition.*
This cook-top is manufactured for use with NATURAL gas and it is design- certified by A.G.A.
L.P. gas conversion
This cooktop can be converted for use with L.P. gas. However, no attempt shall be made to convert the appliance from the gas specified on the rating plate for use with a different gas without consulting the serving gas supplier.
Conversion must be done by a qualified service technician. Conversion Kit No. 4173627 is available from your KitchenAid dealer or authorized parts distributor.
Provide a gas supply line of 3/4” rigid
. pipe to the cooktop location. A
IDI smaller size pipe on long runs may result in insufficient gas supply. Pipe-joint compounds made for use with NATURAL and
L.P. gas must be used.
If local codes and ordinances permit,
. A.G.A.-design-certified, new flexible metal tubing is recommended for connecting cook-top to the gas supply line. Do
Not kink or damage the flexible tubing when moving the cooktop. A l/2” male pipe thread is needed for connection to pressure regulator female pipe threads. shutoff valve
The supply line shall be equipped with an approved shutoff valve. This valve should be located in the same room as the cooktop and 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 appliance.
If rigid pipe is
. used as a gas supply line, a co pipe fittings must be used connection to the cooktop. All strains must be removed from the supply and fuel lines so cooktop will be level and in line.
The regulator must be checked at a
. minimum 1” water column above the set pressure. The inlet pressure to the regulator should be as follows for operation and checking the regulator setting:
Set pressure 4 inches
Maximum pressure 14 inches
Line Pressure Testing:
Testing above l/2 psi (gauge)
The cooktop and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that pressures greater than l/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
Testing at l/2 psi (gauge) or lower
The cooktop must be isolated 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 l/2 psig (3.5 kPa).

Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock.
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the ground path is adequate.
Do Not ground to a gas pipe.
Check with a qualified electrician if you are not sure the appliance is properly grounded.
Do Not have a fuse in the neutral or ground circuit.
See back page for wiring diagram.
A 120-volt, 60-Hz, AC only, 15-ampere, fused electrical supply is required. Time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided.
Electronic ignition systems operate within wide voltage limits, but proper grounding and polarity is necessary. In addition to checking that the outlet provides 120-volt power and is correctly grounded, the outlet must be checked by a qualified electrician to see if it is wired with correct polarity.
A wiring diagram is provided on the bottom of the cooktop box and in the literature package.
Recommended ground method
For your personal safety, this appliance must be grounded. This appliance is equipped with a power supply cord having a 3-prong ground plug.
To minimize possible shock hazard, the cord must be plugged into a mating 3-prong ground- type outlet, grounded in accordance with National
Electrical Code, ANSVNFPA 70 - latest edition and all local codes and ordinances. See Figure 8.
If a mating outlet is not available, it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to have a properly grounded 3-prong outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

To avoid scratching countertop, lift entire cooktop up from cutout when repositioning cooktop into countertop opening.
Insert the cooktop into the countertop opening.
Check that the front of the cooktop is parallel to the front edge of the countertop. Check that all required clearances are met. Use a pencil to mark a line along the rear of the cooktop on the countertop.
Remove the cooktop from the cutout and place it upside down on a protected surface.
Remove the paper backing from a small section of the foam sealing strip. Place the strip l/8” from cooktop edge on the underside of the glass.
Continue until foam strip completely outlines the edge of the cooktop.
If you are installing more than one appliance in the same cutout, you do not need to place a foam strip on the side that will be adjacent to another appliance.

Electronic Ignition System - initial lighting
Cooktop burners use electronic ignitors in place of standing pilots. When the cooktop control knob is turned to the “HI” position, the system creates a spark to light the burner. This sparkina continues until the burner ignites.
- operation of the cooktop burners.
Push in and turn each control knob to “HI” position. The flame should light within 4 seconds.
If the burners do not light properly, turn the control knob to the “OFF” position. Check that the burner cap is plugged in and that the circuit breaker or fuse has not blown. Check that the shutoff valve is in the “ON” position. Check operation again. If burner does not light at this point, contact your KitchenAid dealer for assistance.
