Before installing the range in an area covered with
linoleum or any other synthetic floor covering, make
sure the floor covering can withstand heat at least
90°F above room temperature without shrinking,
warping or discoloring. Do not install the range over
carpeting unless you place an insulating pad or sheet of
1/4-inch thick plywood between the range and carpeting.
Make sure the wall coverings around the range can
withstand the heat generated by the range.
