Grounding Instructions

IMPORTANT: READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
WARNING
This appliance is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug for your
protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly
grounded receptacle. DO NOT cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug.
For personal safety, this cooktop must be properly grounded. For maximum
safety, the power cord must be plugged into a 120V—60 Hz. outlet that is
correctly polarized and properly grounded.
If a two-prong wall receptacle is the only available outlet, it is the personal
responsibility of the consumer to have it replaced with a properly grounded three-
prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD ROUND
GROUNDING PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD PLUG. SEE THE INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS PACKAGED WITH THIS COOKTOP FOR COMPLETE INSTALLATION
AND GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS. DO NOT OPERATE THE COOKTOP USING A
TWO-PRONG ADAPTER OR AN EXTENSION CORD.
Liquefied Petroleum (Propane) Gas Conversion
WARNING
Severe shock or damage to the cooktop may occur if the cooktop is not installed by a qualified installer or electrician.
LP/PROPANE GAS CONVERSION
Your cooktop is factory set for use with Natural Gas. Do not use Liquefied Petroleum (propane) Gas.
1- The conversion must be performed by a qualified service technician in accordance with the manufacturer's
instructions and all codes and requirements of the authority having jurisdiction.
2- Failure to follow instructions could result in serious injury or property damage.
If you wish to convert your cooktop to use Liquefied Petroleum (propane) gas, see "Installation Instructions for
the Conversion Procedure".

Flame Size

For most cooking, start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower
one to complete the process. Use the chart below as a guide for determining
proper flame size for various types of cooking. The size and type of utensil used
and the amount of food being cooked will influence the setting needed for cooking.
For deep fat frying, use a thermometer and adjust the Surface Control knob
accordingly. If the fat is too cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy. If the
fat is too hot, the food will brown so quickly that the center will be undercooked.
Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the food will neither
brown nor cook properly.
