not exceed 14" water column.
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 ordi-
nances.
IMPORTANT: Range must be connected to
a regulated gas supply.

GAS SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS

2.
Input ratings shown on the model/serial
rating plate are for elevations up to 2,000
feet (609.6 m). For elevations above 2,000
feet (609.6 m), ratings are reduced at a
rate of 4% for each 1,000 feet (304.8 m)
above sea level. (Not applicable for
Canada.)
3.
This range is equipped for use with Natu-
ral gas. It is design-certified by AGA/CSA
for Natural and L.P. gas with appropriate
conversion. Conversion to L.P. gas can be
made using the kit included in the litera-
ture package. The model/serial rating plate
has information on the type of gas that can
be used. If this information does not agree
with the type of gas available, check with
your KitchenAid dealer.
4.
Provide a gas supply line of 3/4" (1.9 cm)
rigid pipe to the range location. A smaller
size pipe on long runs may result in insuf-
ficient gas supply. Pipe-joint compounds
appropriate for use with L.P. gas must be
used. With L.P. gas, piping or tubing size
can be 1/2" (1.3 cm) minimum. L.P. gas
suppliers usually determine the size and
materials used on the system.
5.
If local codes permit, a new AGA/CSA
design-certified, 4-5 foot (122 -152.4 cm)
long, 1/2" (1.3 cm) or 3/4" (1.9 cm) I.D.,
flexible metal appliance connector is rec-
ommended for connecting this range to
the gas supply line. Do Not kink or damage
the flexible tubing when moving the range.
A 1/2" (1.3 cm) male pipe thread is needed
for connection to pressure regulator fe-
male pipe threads.
