WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Take special care when drilling holes in the
floor or wall. Electrical wires may be behind the
wall or floor covering and could cause an
electrical shock if you touch them.
Locate the electrical circuits that could be af-
fected by the installation of the anti-tip bracket
and turn off power to these circuits.
Personal Injury Hazard
To reduce the risk of tipping of the range, the
range must be secured by a properly installed
floor-mounted anti-tip bracket, supplied with
the range.
If range is moved to a new location, the anti-tip
bracket must be reinstalled in the new location.
Because of the weight and size of this range,
two or more people are required to move it.
Do not use the handle for lifting.
Failure to follow these instructions could result
in injury.
INSTALLING THE ANTI-TIP
BRACKET
1.
Use safety glasses and gloves to install the
range.
2.
Remove the oven racks and parts package
from inside the oven. Also remove all shipping
materials, tape, and protective film from the
range.
3.
Slide a cardboard shipping base under the
range to prevent damage to the floor cover-
ing.
4.
Use the anti-tip bracket template/instruction
sheet, and install the anti-tip bracket. The
anti-tip bracket must be anchored securely to
the sub floor. Depending on the thickness of
the flooring, longer screws may be needed to
anchor the bracket to the sub floor.
