GAS COOKTOP INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

5. Install Pressure Regulator

Install the pressure regulator with the arrow on the
regulator pointing up toward the unit in a position
where you can reach the access cap.
Do not make the connection too tight.
The regulator is die cast. Overtightening may crack the
regulator resulting in a gas leak and possible fire or
explosion.

Assemble the flexible connector from the gas supply pipe
to the pressure regulator in the following order:
1. manual shutoff valve
2. 1/2" (1.3 cm) nipple
3. 1/2" (1.3 cm) flare union adapter
4. flexible connector
5. 1/2" (1.3 cm) flare union adapter
6. 1/2" (1.3 cm) nipple
7. pressure regulator
Use pipe-joint compound made for use with Natural and
LP/Propane gas to seal all gas connections. If flexible
connectors are used, be certain connectors are not
kinked.
(For 30" & 36" Models)
The supply line must be equipped with an approved
manual shutoff valve. This valve should be located in the
same room as the cooktop and should be in a location
that allows ease of opening and closing. Do not block
access to the shutoff valve. The valve is for turning on or
shutting off gas to the appliance.

Once regulator is in place, open the shutoff valve in the
gas supply line. Wait a few minutes for gas to move
through the gas line.
Check for leaks. After connecting the cooktop to the
gas supply, check the system for leaks with a manometer.
If a manometer is not available, turn on the gas supply
and use a liquid leak detector (or soap and water) at all
joints and connections to check for leaks.
gas connections. Checking for leaks with a flame may
result in a fire or explosion.
Tighten all connections if necessary to prevent gas
leakage in the cooktop or supply line.
Check alignment of control knob valves after
connecting the cooktop to the gas supply to be sure the
cooktop manifold pipe has not moved. A misalignment
could cause the valve stems to rub on the control panel,
resulting in a gas leak at the valve.
Disconnect this cooktop and its individual manual
shutoff valve from the gas supply piping system during
any pressure testing of that system at test pressures
greater than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa or 14"water column).
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 1/2 psig
(3.5 kPa or 14" water column).
