24" gas built-in single wall oven
Hide thumbs


Gas supply
Observe all governing codes and
Fire Hazard
. Oven must be connected to a
regulated gas supply.
m L.P. gas supply must Not exceed
a pressure of 14" water column.
This must be checked by a
qualified technician before
this oven.
. Do Not use an open flame to test
for leaks from gas connections.
. New A.G.A.-design-certified.
flexible gas line should be used
when local codes permit.
Failure to follow these instructions
could result in a fire, explosion or
personal injury.
. This installation must conform
with local codes and ordinances. In the
absence of local codes, installations must
conform with American National
Standard, National Fuel Gas Code ANSI
2233.1 - latest edition**.
. Input ratings shown on the
serial/rating plate are for elevations up to
2,000 feet. For elevations above 2,000
feet, ratings are reduced at a rate of 4%
for each 1,000 feet above sea level.
This oven is equipped for use with
NATURAL and L.P. gases. It is design-
certified by A.G A. for NATURAL and
L.P. gases with appropriate conversion
The seriaurating plate, located behind
the oven door on the oven frame, has
information on the type of gas that can
be used. If this information does not
agree with the type of gas available,
check with the local gas supplier. See
Panel E for L.P. gas conversion
. Provide a gas supply line of 314"
rigid pipe to the oven location, A smaller
size pipe on long runs may result in
insufficient gas supply. Pipe-joint
compounds made for use with L.P. gas
must be used. With L.P. gas, piping or
tubing size can be l/2' minimum. L.P gas
suppliers usually determine the size and
materials used on their system.
If local codes permit, A.G.A.-
design-certified flexible metal tubing is
recommended for connecting this oven to
the gas supply line. Do Not kink or
damage the flexible tubing when moving
the oven. A l/2" male pipe thread is
needed for connection to pressure
regulator female pipe threads.
. The supply line shall be equipped
with an approved shutoff valve. This
valve should be located in the same room
as the oven and should be in a location
that allows ease of opening and closing.
Do Not block access to shutoff valve.
The oven regulator (located in the lower,
right rear of broiler drawer opening) is
equipped with a shutoff valve.
. If rigid pipe is used as a gas
supply line, a combination of pipe
fittings must be used to obtain an in-line
connection to the oven. All strains must
be removed from the supply and fuel
lines so oven will be level and in line.
The reoulator must be checked at
a minimum ofj-inch water column
above the set pressure. The inlet
pressure to the regulator should be as
follows for operation:
Set pressure 4 inches
Maximum pressure 14 inches
Set pressure 10 inches
Maximum pressure 14 inches
. Line pressure testing:
Testing above l/2 psi (gauge)
The oven and its individual shutoff valve
must be disconnected from the gas
supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test
pressures greater than l/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
Testing at 112 psi (gauge)
The oven must be isolated 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 l/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
Electrical Shock Hazard
. Electrical ground is required on
this appliance.
Do Not ground to a gas pipe.
- Do Not modify the power supply
cord plug. If it does not fit the
outlet. have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified
m Do Not have a fuse in the neutral
or grounding circuit. A fuse in the
neutral or grounding circuit could
result in electrical shock.
Do Not use an extension cord with
this appliance.
m Check with a qualified electrician
if you are in doubt as to whether
the appliance is properly
Failure to follow these instructions
could result in serious injury or
If codes permit and separate grounding
wire is used, it is recommended that a
qualified electrician determine that the
grounding path is adequate.
A 120~volt, 60-Hz. AC-only, 15-ampere.
fused electrical supply is required. A
time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is
recommended. It is recommended that a
separate circuit serving only this
appliance be provided.
Electronic ignition systems operate
within wide voltage limits but proper
grounding and polarity is necessary. In
addition to checking that the outlet
provides 120~volt power and is correctly
grounded, the outlet must be checked by
a qualified electrician to see if it is wired
with correct polarity.
A wiring diagram is included in the
literature package. The wiring diagram
is also located behind the control panel.
For your personal safety, this appliance
must be grounded. This appliance is
manufactured with a power supply cord
having a 3-prong grounding plug. To
minimize possible shock hazard, the cord
must be plugged into a mating, 3-prong,
wall receptacle,
grounded in accordance with the
National Electrical Code, ANSYNFPA
70 - latest edition*, and all local codes
and ordinances. See Figure 1. If a mating
wall receptacle is not available, it is the
personal responsibility and obligation of
the customer to have a properly
grounded, 3-prong, wall receptacle
installed by a qualified electrician.
