Electrical Shock Hazard

• Electrical ground is required on this appliance.
• Do not connect to the electrical supply until
appliance is permanently grounded.
• Disconnect power to the junction box before
making the electrical connection.
• This appliance must be connected to a grounded,
metallic, permanent wiring system, or a grounding
connector should be connected to the grounding
terminal or wire lead on the appliance.
• Do not use a gas supply line for grounding the
Failure to do any of the above could result in a fire,
personal injury or electrical shock.
In cold weather shipping and storage
conditions, make sure that oven is in final location
at least three (3) hours before switching on power.
Switching on power while oven is still cold may
damage the oven controls.

4. Electrical connection

It is the responsibility and obligation of the consumer to
contact a qualified installer to assure that the electrical
installation is adequate and is in conformance
with the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No.
70-latest edition, or with CSA Standard C22.1,
Canadian Electrical Code, Part 1, and local codes and
Risk of electrical shock (Failure to
heed this warning may result in electrocution or
other serious injury.) This appliance is equipped with
copper lead wire. If connection is made to aluminum
house wiring, use only connectors that are approved
for joining copper and aluminum wire in accordance
with the National Electrical Code and local code and
ordinances. When installing connectors having screws
which bear directly on the steel and/or aluminum
flexible conduit, do no tighten screws sufficiently to
damage the flexible conduit. Do not over bend or
excessively distort flexible conduit to avoid separation
of convolutions en exposure of internal wires.
DO NOT ground to a gas supply pipe. DO NOT
connect to electrical power supply until appliance
is permanently grounded. Connect the ground wire
before turning on the power.
(If your appliance is equipped with a
white neutral conductor.)
This appliance is manufactured with a white neutral
power supply and a frame connected copper wire. The
frame is grounded by connection of grounding lead to
neutral lead at the termination of the conduit, if used in
USA, in a new branch circuit installation (1996 NEC),
mobile home, recreational vehicles, where local code
do not permit grounding trough the neutral (white) wire
or in Canada, disconnect the white and green lead
from each other and use ground lead to ground unit in
accordance with local codes, connect neutral lead to
branch circuit-neutral conductor in usual manner see
Figure 3. If your appliance is to be connected to a 3
wire grounded junction box (US only), where local code
permit connecting the appliance-grounding conductor
to the neutral (white) see Figure 2.
NOTE TO ELECTRICIAN: The armored cable leads
supplied with the appliance are UL-recognized for
connection to larger gauge household wiring. The
insulation of the leads is rated at temperatures much
higher than temperature rating of household wiring.
The current carrying capacity of the conductor is
governed by the temperature rating of the insulation
around the wire, rather than the wire gauge alone.
Where local codes permit connecting the appliance-
grounding conductor to the neutral (white) wire (US
Only) (see figure 2):
1. Disconnect the power supply.
2. In the junction box:
connect appliance and power supply cable wires as
shown in Figure 2.
