INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS - FREESTANDING GAS RANGE
Check ignition of surface
7
burners.
Operation of electric igniters should be checked after range
and supply line connectors have been carefully checked for
leaks and range has been connected to electric power.
a. To check for proper ignition, push in and turn a
surface burner knob counterclockwise to the LITE
position. You will hear the igniter sparking.
b. The surface burner should ignite when gas is available
to the burner. Purge air from supply lines by leaving
knob in the LITE position until burner ignites. Each
burner should light within four (4) seconds in normal
operation after air has been purged from supply lines.
c. Visually check that burner has a flame. Once the
burner ignites, the control knob should be turned out
of the LITE position.
d. Try each surface control knob separately until all
surface burners have been checked. Each burner
location is equipped with a separate electrode.
Adjust the LOW setting of surface
8
burner valves (linear flow).
Test to verify if LOW setting should be adjusted:
a. Push in and turn control to LITE until burner ignites.
b. Push in and quickly turn knob to lowest position.
c. If burner goes out, reset control to OFF.
d. Remove the surface burner control knob.
For all burner styles (except Dual or Twin burner):
e. Insert a thin-bladed screwdriver into the hollow valve
stem and engage the slotted screw inside. Flame size
can be increased or decreased with the turn of the
screw. Turn counterclockwise to increase flame size.
Turn clockwise to decrease flame size. (See Figs. 17
& 19).
Adjust flame until you can quickly turn knob from LITE
to lowest position without extinguishing the flame.
Flame should be as small as possible without
extinguishing.
For Dual or Twin burner style adjustment only:
e. The inner portion (Simmer) of the twin burner flame
size can be increased or decreased with the turn of
screw A. Use screw B to adjust the flame size of the
outer portion of the Twin Burner (See Fig. 18). Turn
the screw counterclockwise to increase flame size.
Turn clockwise to decrease flame size. Adjust flame
size until you can quickly turn the knob from LITE to
lowest position without extinguishing the flame.
Note: Air mixture adjustments are not required on surface
burners.

The operation of oven igniters should be checked after
range and supply line connectors have been carefully
checked for leaks and range has been connected to
electric power. Be sure all packing materials and
literature are removed from oven.
The oven burner is equipped with an electric control
system as well as an electric oven burner igniter. If your
model is equipped with an upper oven burner, it will also
have an electric burner igniter. These control systems
require no adjustment. When the oven is set to operate,
current will flow to the igniter. It will "glow" similar to a light
bulb. When the igniter has reached a temperature sufficient
to ignite gas, the electrically controlled oven valve will open
and flame will appear at the oven burner. There is a time
lapse from 30 to 60 seconds after the thermostat is turned
ON before the flame appears at the oven burner. When the
oven reaches the set temperature, the glowing igniter will
cycle off. The burner flame will turn off in 20 to 30 seconds
after the igniter turns off. To maintain any set oven
temperature, this cycle will continue as long as the oven
control is set to operate.
To check oven burner ignition:
a. Set oven to Bake at 300ºF. See User's Manual for
operating instructions.
b. Within 60 seconds the oven burner should ignite.
Check for proper flame, and allow the burner to cycle
once. Reset control to OFF.
c. If your model is equipped with a waist-high broiler, set
oven to Broil. See User's Manual for operating
instructions.
d. Within 60 seconds the broil burner should ignite.
Check for proper flame. Reset control to OFF.
