READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Gas ranges have been thoroughly tested for safe and efficient operation. However, as with
any appliance, there are specific installation
and safety precautions which must be followed
to ensure safe and satisfactory operation.

If the information
in this manual is not followed
exactly,
a fire or explosion
could result causing
death, personal
injury, or
property
damage.
Do not store or use gasoline
or other flammable
vapors and liquids
in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS:
.Do not try to light any appliance.
*Do not touch any electrical
switch;
do not use any phone in
your building.
@Immediately
call your gas supplier
from a neighbor's
phone.
Follow the gas supplier's
instructions.
@If you cannot
reach your gas supplier,
call the fire department.
Installation
and service
must be performed
by a qualified
installer,
service agency,
or the gas supplier.
General
l
Install or locate the range only in accor-
dance with the provided Installation
Instructions.
The range must be installed
by a qualified installer. The range must
be properly connected to the proper gas
supply and checked for leaks. The range
must also be properly connected to
electrical supply and grounded.
*Gas fuels and their use in appliances
can cause minor exposures to benzene,
form-aldehyde,
carbon monoxide, and
soot, primarily from incomplete combus-
tion. Significant
exposure to these
substances
could cause cancer or
reproductive
harm. Properly adjusted
burners with a blue, rather than a yellow,
flame will minimize incomplete combus-
tion. Venting with a hood or an open
window will further minimize exposure.
l
Do not store things children might want
above the range. Children could be
burned or injured while climbing on it.
l
Do not leave children alone or unattended
in area where the range is in use. They
should never be allowed to sit or stand on
any part of the range. They could be
burned or injured.
l
Do not operate the range if it is damaged
or not working properly.
l
Do not use the range for warming or
heating the room. Persons could be
burned or injured, or a fire could start.
l
