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.
• T h i s a p p l i a n c e m u s t b e c o n n e c t e d t o a
grounded, metallic, permanent wiring system,
or a grounding connector should be connected
to the grounding terminal or wire lead on the
• 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 ordinances.
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.
(and Optional Electric or Gas Cooktop Combination)
(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 4. 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 3.
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 3):
1. Disconnect the power supply.
2. In the junction box:
connect appliance and power supply cable wires as
shown in Figure 3.
