Failure to remove packaging
materials could result in damage to the appliance. Remove all packing parts from oven,
racks, heating elements and drawer. Also, remove protective film and labels on the outer
door, cooktop and control panel.

3-WIRE INSTALLATION
WARNING:
The neutral or ground wire of the power cord must be connected
to the neutral terminal located in the center of the terminal block and the ground strap must
connect the neutral terminal to the ground plate. The power leads must be connected to the
lower left and the lower right terminals of the terminal block.
DO NOT remove the ground strap connection.
FOR POWER CORD INSTALLATION
A. Remove the 3 lower terminal screws from the terminal block.
B. Insert the 3 terminal screws through each power cord terminal ring and into the lower
terminals of the terminal block. Be certain that the center wire (white/neutral)
is connected to the center lower position of the terminal block.
C. Tighten screws securely into the terminal block.
FOR CONDUIT INSTALLATION
A. Loosen the 3 lower terminal screws on the terminal block. Strip wire to exposed tip about 5/8" long.
B. Insert the center (white/neutral) wire tip through the bottom center terminal block opening.
On certain models, the wire will need to be inserted through the ground strap opening
and then into the bottom center block opening. Insert the two side bare wire tips into
the lower left and the lower right terminal block openings.
C. Tighten the screws until the wire is firmly secured (35 to 50 inch-lbs.). Do not over-tighten
the screws.
NOTE: ALUMINUM WIRING: Aluminum building wire may be used but it must be rated
for the correct amperage and voltage.

MINIMUM DIMENSIONS BETWEEN COOKTOP,
WALLS AND ABOVE THE COOKTOP:
NOTE C
A. Make sure the wall covering, countertop, flooring
and cabinets around the range can withstand
the heat (up to 200°F) generated by the range.
B. Allow 30" minimum clearance between surface
units and bottom of unprotected wood or metal
A
cabinet, or allow a 24" minimum when bottom
of wood or metal cabinet is protected by no less
than 1/4" thick flame retardant millboard covered
with not less than No 28 MSG sheet metal,
(.015"), .015" thick stainless steel, .024"
aluminum or .020" copper.
C. This appliance has been approved for 0" spacing to adjacent surfaces above the cooktop.
However, a 6" minimum spacing to surfaces less than 15" above the cooktop and adjacent
cabinet is recommended to reduce exposure to steam, grease splatter and heat.
To reduce the risk of burns or fire when reaching over hot surface elements, cabinet storage
space above the cooktop should be avoided. If cabinet storage space is to be provided above
the cooktop, the risk can be reduced by installing a range hood that projects at least 5" beyond
the front of the cabinets. Cabinets installed above the cooktop must be no deeper than 13".

4-WIRE INSTALLATION
WARNING:
The neutral wire of the supply circuit must be connected to the neutral terminal
located in the lower center of the terminal block. The power leads must be connected to the lower left and the
lower right terminals of the terminal block. The grounding lead must be connected to the frame of the range
with the ground plate and the green ground screw.
FOR POWER CORD INSTALLATION
A. Remove the 3 lower terminal screws from the terminal block. Remove the ground screw and
ground plate and retain them. Cut and discard the ground strap. DO NOT DISCARD ANY SCREWS.
B. Insert the one ground screw into the power cord ground wire terminal ring, through the ground plate
and into the frame of the range.
C. Insert the 3 terminal screws (removed earlier) through each power cord terminal ring and into the lower
terminals of the terminal block. Be certain that the center wire (white/neutral) is connected to the center
lower position of the terminal block. Tighten screws securely into the terminal block.
FOR CONDUIT INSTALLATION
A. Loosen the 3 lower terminal screws on the terminal block. Remove the ground screw and ground plate
and retain them. Cut and discard the ground strap. DO NOT DISCARD ANY SCREWS. Strip wire
to exposed tip about 5/8" long.
B. Insert the ground bare wire tip between the range frame and the ground plate (removed earlier)
and secure it in place with the ground screw (removed earlier). Insert the bare wire (white/neutral) tip
through the bottom center of the terminal block opening. Insert the two side bare wire tips into the lower
left and the lower right terminal block openings.
C. Tighten the screws until the wire is firmly secured (35 to 50 inch-lbs.). Do not over-tighten the screws.
NOTE: ALUMINUM WIRING: Aluminum building wire may be used but it must be rated
for the correct amperage and voltage.

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
WARNING:
This appliance must be properly grounded.
WARNING:
All new constructions, mobile homes, recreational vehicles and installations
where local codes do not allow grounding through neutral, require a 4-conductor UL-listed range cord.

ANTI-TIP DEVICE INSTALLATION
To reduce the risk of tipping the range, the range must
be secured by a properly installed anti-tip bracket. See
installation instructions shipped with the bracket for
complete details before attempting to install.
To check if the bracket is installed and engaged properly,
remove the storage drawer or kick panel and look
underneath the range to see that the leveling leg is
engaged in the bracket. On models without a storage
drawer or kick panel, carefully tip the range forward.
The bracket should stop the range within 4 inches. If it
does not, the bracket must be reinstalled. If the range
is pulled from the wall for any reason, always repeat this
procedure to verify the range is properly secured by the anti-tip bracket. Never completely remove
the leveling legs or the range will not be secured to the anti-tip device properly.

FINAL INSTALLATION CHECKLIST
• Check to make sure the circuit breaker is closed (RESET) or the circuit fuses are replaced.
• Be sure power is in service to the building.
• Check that all packing materials and tape have been removed. This will include tape on metal panel
under control knobs (if applicable), adhesive tape, wire ties, cardboard and protective plastic. Failure
to remove these materials could result in damage to the appliance once the appliance has been
turned on and surfaces have heated.
• Check that the door and drawer are parallel to each other and that both operate smoothly. If they
do not, see the Owner's Manual for proper replacement.
• Check to make sure that the rear leveling leg is fully inserted into the Anti-Tip bracket and that the
bracket is securely installed.
OPERATION CHECKLIST
• Turn on one of the surface units to observe that the element glows within 60 seconds. Turn the unit
off when glow is detected. If the glow is not detected within the time limit, recheck the range wiring
Stop
connections. If change is required, retest again. If no change is required, have building wiring checked
for proper connections and voltage.
• Check that the Clock (on models so equipped) display is energized. If a series of horizontal red
lines appear in the display, disconnect power immediately. Recheck the range wiring connections.
If change is made to connections, retest again. If no change is required, have building wiring checked
for proper connections and voltage. It is recommended that the clock be changed if the red lines
appear.
• Be sure all range controls are in the OFF position before leaving the range.

For power cord installations only
(see the next step if using conduit),
assemble the strain relief in the hole.
Insert the power cord through the strain
relief and tighten. Allow enough slack
to easily attach the cord terminals to
the terminal block. If tabs are present at
the end of the winged strain relief, they
can be removed for better fit.
NOTE: Do not install the power cord
without a strain relief. The strain relief
bracket MUST be installed before
reinstalling the rear range wiring cover.
