WARNING
Fire Hazard
When you make gas line connections, espe-
cially to the pressure regulator, do not make the
connections too tight. If you do, you may crack
the regulator (or pipe) and cause a gas leak,
which could result in a possible fire, or explosion.
INSTALLING THE GAS LINE
The following procedure is for a typical gas line
installation and its associated components to the
gas range. Use pipe-joint compound that is made
for use with natural and L.P. gas to seal all of the
connections. Tighten all of the connections with an
adjustable (pipe) wrench.
1.
Turn all of the range knobs to OFF.
2.
Remove the storage drawer so you can ac-
cess the regulator.
3.
Remove the plastic dust cap from the inlet of
the pressure regulator.
4.
Assemble the rigid or flexible gas line be-
tween the gas supply pipe and the pressure
regulator. Typical installations are shown in
the following two illustrations. Use pipe-joint
compound that is made for L.P. gas to seal the
connections.
