Provide an Adequate Gas Supply
This cooktop is designed to operate on natural gas at 4"
(10.2 cm) of manifold pressure only.
A pressure regulator is connected in series with the
manifold on the cooktop and must remain in series with
the supply line.
For proper operation, the maximum inlet pressure to
the regulator must be no more than 14" (35.6 cm) of
water column (W.C.) pressure.
For checking the regulator, the inlet pressure must be at
least 1"(2.5 cm) (or 2.5 kPa) greater than the regulator
manifold pressure setting. The regulator is set for 4"
(10.2 cm) of manifold pressure, the inlet pressure must
be at least 5" (12.7 cm).
The gas supply line to the range should be 1/2" (1.3 cm)
or 3/4" (1.9 cm) pipe.
LP/Propane Gas Conversion
This appliance can be used with Natural gas or LP/
Propane gas. It is shipped from the factory for use with
A kit for converting to LP gas is supplied with your
cooktop. The kit is marked "FOR LP/PROPANE GAS
The conversion must be performed by a qualified service
technician in accordance with the kit instructions and all
local codes and requirements. Failure to follow
instructions could result in serious injury or property
damage. The qualified agency performing this work
assumes responsibility for the conversion.
Failure to make the appropriate
conversion can result in serious personal injury and
Remove all packing material and
literature from cooktop before connecting gas and
electrical supply to cooktop.
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
All connections must be wrench-tightened
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
