Gas supply
Explosion Hazard
Use a new AGA or CSA approved
gas supply line.
Install a shut-off valve.
Securely tighten all gas
If connected to LP, have a
qualified person make sure gas
pressure does not exceed 14"
water column.
Examples of a qualified person
include licensed heating
personnel, authorized gas
company personnel, and
authorized service personnel.
Failure to do so can result in
death, explosion, or fire.
Observe all governing codes and
Important: Cooktop must be connected
to a regulated gas supply.
This installation must conform with
local codes and ordinances. In the
absence of local codes, installations must
conform with American National
Standard, National Fuel Gas Code ANSI
Z223.1 — latest edition** or CANI —
B149.1 or 2**.
Input ratings shown on the
model/serial rating plate are for elevations
up to 2,000 feet (610 m). For elevations
above 2,000 feet (610 m), ratings are
reduced at a rate of 4% for each 1,000
feet (305 m) above sea level.
The cooktop is equipped for use
with NATURAL gas. It is design-certified
by CSA International for NATURAL and
L.P. gases with appropriate conversion.
The model/serial rating plate, located on
the underside of the burner box, has
information on the type of gas that can be
used. If this information does not agree
with the type of gas available, check with
the local gas supplier. See Page 2 for L.P.
gas conversion instructions.
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, a new AGA or
CSA design-certified, 4-5 foot (1.2-1.5 m)
long, 1/2" or 3/4" I.D., flexible metal
appliance connector is recommended for
connecting this cooktop to the gas supply
line. Do Not kink or damage the flexible
connector when moving the cooktop. The
pressure regulator has 3/8" 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
Set pressure 4 inches (10.2 cm).
Supply pressure 7-14 inches (17.8 cm
to 35.5 cm) 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)
(14 inches (35.6 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)
(14 inches (35.6 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).
gas supply
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.
