Flexible metal appliance connector:
If local codes permit, use a
stainless steel tubing gas connector, designed by CSA
to connect the cooktop to the rigid gas supply line.

the female pipe threads of the inlet to the appliance
pressure regulator.
Do not kink or damage the flexible metal tubing
when moving the cooktop.
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.

Decide on the final location for the cooktop.
1. Place the cooktop upside down on a covered work surface.
Clean along the outside surface of the cooktop where the
foam strip will be applied.
2. Remove foam strip from package containing literature.
Remove backing from foam strip. Apply foam strip adhesive-
side down around bottom of cooktop, flush with edge.
NOTE: The foam strip helps keep the underside of the
cooktop glass free from debris and helps the cooktop
sit flat on uneven counters.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Prepare Cooktop

Gas Pressure Regulator
The gas pressure regulator supplied with this cooktop must
be used. The inlet pressure to the regulator should be as
follows for proper operation:
Natural Gas:
Minimum pressure: 5" (12.7 cm) WCP
Maximum pressure: 7" to 14" (17.8 cm to 35.5 cm) WCP
LP Gas:
Minimum pressure: 11" (27.9 cm) WCP
Maximum pressure: 14" (35.5 cm) WCP
Contact local gas supplier if you are not sure about the
inlet pressure.
Burner Input Requirements
Input ratings shown on the model/serial rating plate are
for elevations up to 2,000 ft (609.6 m).
For elevations above 2,000 ft (609.6 m), ratings are reduced
at a rate of 4% for each 1,000 ft (304.8 m) above sea level
(not applicable for Canada).
Gas Supply Pressure Testing
Line pressure testing above
The appliance and its individual shutoff valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system during
any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in
excess of
