Electrical Requirements - KitchenAid KGCP467JSS - 36" Sealed Burner Commercial-Style Gas Cooktop Installation Instructions Manual

36" (91.4 cm) and 48" (121.9 cm) gas cooktop
Hide thumbs


L.P. Gas:
No attempt shall be made to convert the
cooktop from the gas specified on the
model/serial rating plate for use with a
different gas without consulting the
serving gas supplier. Conversion must be
done by a qualified service technician. To
convert to L.P. gas, use L.P. gas
conversion kit part no. 8284934. The parts
for this kit are in the literature package
supplied with cooktop.
Provide a gas supply line of 3/4"
rigid pipe to the cooktop location. A
smaller size pipe on long runs may result
in insufficient gas supply. Pipe-joint
compounds, suitable for use with L.P. gas,
must be used. With L.P. gas, piping or
tubing size can be 1/2" minimum. L.P. gas
suppliers usually determine the size and
materials used on the system.
If local codes permit, use a flexible
stainless steel tubing gas connector,
design-certified by AGA or CSA
International, to connect the cooktop to
the rigid gas supply line. 5/8" diameter line
is recommended. Do Not kink or damage
the flexible connector when moving the
cooktop. The pressure regulator has 1/2"
female pipe threads. You will need to
determine the fittings required, depending
on the size of your gas supply line, flexible
metal connector and shutoff valve.
shutoff valve
"open" position
to cooktop
The supply line shall be equipped
with an approved 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.
If rigid pipe
is used as a gas
supply line, a combination of pipe
fittings must be used to obtain an in-line
connection to the cooktop. All strains
must be removed from the supply and
fuel lines so cooktop will be level and in
The regulator must be checked at a
minimum 1-inch (2.5 cm) water column
above the set pressure. The inlet pressure to
the regulator should be as follows for
operation and checking the regulator setting:
Set pressure 5 inches (12.7 cm) W.C.
Supply pressure 7-14 inches (17.8 cm
to 35.5 cm) W.C. maximum.
Minimum pressure 10 inches (25.4 cm)
Supply pressure 14 inches (35.5 cm)
Line pressure testing:
Testing above 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa) or
14 inches (35.5 cm) W.C. (gauge)
The cooktop and its individual shutoff
valve must be disconnected from the gas
supply piping system during any pressure
testing of that system at test pressures
greater than 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
Testing below 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa) or
14 inches (35.5 cm) W.C. (gauge) or
The cooktop must be isolated 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).

Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3-prong
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Failure to follow these
instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
If codes permit and a separate ground
wire is used, it is recommended that a
qualified electrician determine that the
ground path is adequate.
Check with a qualified electrician if
you are not sure whether the cooktop
is properly grounded.
Do Not ground to a gas pipe.
A 120-volt, 60-Hz, AC-only, 15-ampere,
fused electrical supply is required. A
time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is
recommended. It is recommended that a
separate circuit serving only this
appliance be provided.
Electronic ignition systems operate within
wide voltage limits, but proper ground and
polarity are necessary. In addition to
checking that the outlet provides 120-volt
power and is correctly grounded, the
outlet must be checked by a qualified
electrician to see if it is wired with correct
polarity. A wiring diagram is provided on
the last page of these instructions.
Important: This cooktop is equipped with
an electronic ignition system that will not
operate if plugged into an outlet that is
not properly polarized.
This appliance, when installed, must be
electrically grounded in accordance with
local codes or, in the absence of local
codes, with the current CSA standard
C22.1. Canadian Electrical Code Part 1*.
Recommended ground method
For your personal safety, this cooktop
must be grounded. This cooktop is
equipped with a 3-prong ground plug. To
minimize possible shock hazard, the cord
must be plugged into a mating 3-prong
ground-type outlet, grounded in
accordance with the National Electrical
Code ANSI/NFPA 70 latest edition** or
Canadian Electrical Code (CSA)* — and
local codes and ordinances. If a mating
outlet is not available, it is the personal
responsibility and obligation of the
customer to have a properly polarized
and grounded, 3-prong outlet installed by
a qualified electrician.
