Grounding Instructions
IMPORTANT: READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
This appliance is equipped with a 3 prong grounding plug for your
protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly
grounded receptacle. DO NOT cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug.
For personal safety, this cooktop must be properly grounded. For maximum safety,
the power cord must be plugged into a 120V—60 Hz. outlet that is correctly
polarized and properly grounded.
If a two-prong wall receptacle is the only available outlet, it is the personal
responsibility of the consumer to have it replaced with a properly grounded three-
prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD ROUND
GROUNDING PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD PLUG. SEE THE INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS PACKAGED WITH THIS COOKTOP FOR COMPLETE INSTALLATION
AND GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS. DO NOT OPERATE THE COOKTOP USING A
TWO-PRONG ADAPTER OR AN EXTENSION CORD.

Liquefied Petroleum (Propane) Gas Conversion

Severe shock or damage to the cooktop may occur if the cooktop is not installed by a qualified installer or electrician.
This appliance can be used with Natural Gas and Propane Gas. It is shipped from the factory for use with natural gas.
If you wish to convert your cooktop for use with Liquefied Petroleum (propane) gas, use the supplied fixed orifices located in the
package containing the installation instructions, in a bag marked "FOR LP/PROPANE GAS CONVERSION". Follow the instructions
packaged with the orifices.
The conversion must be performed by a qualified service technician in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions and all codes
and requirements of the authority having jurisdiction. Failure to follow the instructions could result in serious injury or property
damage. The qualified agency performing this work assumes responsibility for the conversion.

Flame Size

For most cooking, start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower one to complete
the process. Use the chart below as a guide for determining proper flame size for various types of
cooking. The size and type of utensil used and the amount of food being cooked will influence
the setting needed for cooking.
For deep fat frying, use a thermometer and adjust the surface control knob accordingly. If the
fat is too cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy. If the fat is too hot, the food will brown
so quickly that the center will be undercooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at
once as the food will neither brown nor cook properly.
*Flame Size
Type of Cooking
High Flame
Start most foods; bring water to a boil; pan broiling
Medium Flame
Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces, gravies; steam
Low Flame
Keep foods cooking; poach; stew
* These settings are based on using medium-weight aluminum pans with lids. Settings
may vary when using other types of pans.

Avoid fire hazard or electrical
shock. Do not use an adaptor plug, an
extension cord, or remove grounding prong
from electrical power cord. Failure to follow
this warning can cause serious injury, fire or
death.
Never extend the flame beyond
the outer edge of the utensil. A
higher flame simply wastes heat
and energy, and increases your
risk of being burned by the
flame.
