30" (76 cm) freestanding electric ranges
Hide thumbs


If connecting to a 4-wire system:
This range is manufactured with the ground connected to the
cabinet. The ground must be revised so the green ground wire of
the 4-wire power supply cord is connected to the cabinet. See
"Electrical Connection."
Grounding through the neutral conductor is prohibited for new
branch-circuit installations (1996 NEC); mobile homes; and
recreational vehicles, or an area where local codes prohibit
grounding through the neutral conductor.
When a 4-wire receptacle of NEMA Type 14-50R is used, a
matching UL listed, 4-wire, 250-volt, 40- or 50-amp, range power
supply cord (pigtail) must be used. This cord contains 4 copper
conductors with ring terminals or open-end spade terminals with
upturned ends, terminating in a NEMA Type 14-50P plug on the
supply end.
The fourth (grounding) conductor must be identified by a green or
green/yellow cover and the neutral conductor by a white cover.
Cord should be Type SRD or SRDT with a UL listed strain relief
and be at least 4 ft (1.22 m) long.
4-wire receptacle (14-50R)
The minimum conductor sized for the copper 4-wire power
cord are:
40-amp circuit
2 No.-8 conductors
1 No.-10 white neutral
1 No.-8 green grounding
If connecting to a 3-wire system:
Local codes may permit the use of a UL listed, 3-wire, 250-volt,
40- or 50-amp range power supply cord (pigtail). This cord
contains 3 copper conductors with ring terminals or open-end
spade terminals with upturned ends, terminating in a NEMA Type
10-50P plug on the supply end. Connectors on the appliance end
must be provided at the point the power supply cord enters the
appliance. This uses a 3-wire receptacle of NEMA Type 10-50R.

Electrical Shock Hazard
Electrically ground range.
Failure to do so can result in death, fire, or
electrical shock.
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrical installer determine that
the ground path is adequate and wire gauge are in accordance
with local codes.
Be sure that the electrical connection and wire size are adequate
and in conformance with CSA Standard C22.1, Canadian
Electrical Code, Part 1 - latest edition, and all local codes and
A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:
Canadian Standards Association
178 Rexdale Blvd.
Toronto, ON M9W 1R3 CANADA
Check with a qualified electrical installer if you are not sure
the range is properly grounded.

*The NEC calculated load is less than the total connected load
listed on the model/serial rating plate.
**If connecting to a 50-amp circuit, use a 50-amp rated cord with
kit. For 50-amp rated cord kits, use kits that specify use with a
nominal 1 " (34.9 mm) diameter connection opening.
A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended.
This range is equipped with a CSA International Certified
Power Cord intended to be plugged into a standard 14-50R
wall receptacle. Be sure the wall receptacle is within reach of
range's final location.
Do not use an extension cord.
