Hookup the cooktop to the gas supply line.
Install the pressure regulator with the arrow pointing
toward cooktop and where you can reach the access
cap. Be sure you know how and where to shut off the
gas supply to the cooktop.
Leak testing of the appliance shall be conducted
according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Check for leaks. After connecting cooktop gas, check
system for leaks with a manometer. if a manometer is
not available shut all pilots off, turn the gas supply on
the unit and use a liquid leak detector at all joints and
connections to check for leaks.
Tighten all connections if necessary to prevent gas
leakage in the cooktop or supply line.
Check alignment of valves after connecting the
cooktop to the gas supply to be sure the manifold pipe
has not been moved. A misalignment could cause the
valve knob stem to rub on the control panel, resulting in
a gas leak at the valve.
IMPORTANT: A pipe joint sealant resistant to the action
of LP Gas must be used on all pipe connections.
IMPORTANT: Remove all packing material and literature
from cooktop before connecting gas and electrical
supply to the appliance.
Do not use flame to check for leaks from
gas connections. Checking for leaks with a flame may
result in a fire or explosion.
Disconnect the cooktop and its individual shutoff
valve from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure test greater than ½ psig.
Isolate the cooktop from the gas supply piping
system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve
during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping
system at test pressures equal to or less than ½ psig.
