Electrolux gas cooktop installation instructions

The supply line should 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.
Figure 6
Once the regulator is in place, open the shutoff valve in
the gas supply line. Wait a few minutes for gas to move
through the gas line.
Check for leaks. After connecting the cooktop to the
gas supply, check the system for leaks with a
manometer. If a manometer is not available, turn on the
gas supply and use a liquid leak detector (or soap and
water) at all joints and connections to check for leaks.
Do not use a flame to check for leaks
from gas connections. Checking for leaks with a flame
may result in a fire or explosion.
Tighten all connections if necessary to prevent gas
leakage in the cooktop or supply line.
Check alignment of control knob valves after
connecting the cooktop to the gas supply to be sure the
cooktop manifold pipe has not moved. A misalignment
could cause the valve stems to rub on the control panel,
resulting in a gas leak at the valve.
Disconnect this cooktop and its individual shutoff
valve from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures greater
than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa or 14" (35.6 cm) water column).
Isolate the cooktop 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 or 14" (35.6 cm) water column).
