and supply line connectors have been carefully checked for
leaks and range has been connected to electric power.
a. To check for proper lighting, push in and turn a surface
burner knob counterclockwise to the LITE position. You
will hear the igniter sparking (See Fig. 1).
b. The surface burner should light when gas is available to
the top burner. Purge air from supply lines by leaving knob
in the LITE position until burner ignites.
should light within four (4) seconds in normal operation
after air has been purged from supply lines.
c. Visually check that burner has lit. Once the burner lights,
the control knob should be turned out of the LITE position.
d. There are separate electrodes (igniters) for each burner.
Try each knob separately until all burner valves have been
checked.

Oven Adjustments
9. Electric Ignition Burners
Operation of electric igniters should be checked after range
and supply line connectors have been carefully checked for
leaks and range has been connected to electric power.
The oven burner is equipped with an electric control system as
well as an electric oven burner igniter. If your model is equipped
with a waist-high broil burner, it will also have an electric burner
igniter. These control systems require no adjustment. When
the oven is set to operate, current will flow to the igniter. It will
"glow" similar to a light bulb. When the igniter has reached a
temperature sufficient to ignite gas, the electrically controlled
oven valve will open and flame will appear at the oven burner.
There is a time lapse from 30 to 60 seconds after the
thermostat is turned ON before the flame appears at the oven
burner. When the oven reaches the dial setting, the glowing
igniter will go off. The burner flame will go "out" in 20 to 30
seconds after the igniter goes "OFF." To maintain any given
oven temperature, this cycle will continue as long as the dial
(or display) is set to operate.
After removing all packing materials and literature from the
oven:
a) Set oven to BAKE at 300ºF. See Use & Care Guide for
operating instructions.
b) Within 60 seconds the oven burner should ignite. Check
for proper flame, and allow the burner to cycle once. Reset
controls to off.
c) If your model is equipped with a waist-high broiler, set oven
to BROIL. See Use & Care Guide for operating instructions.
d) Within 60 seconds the broil burner should ignite. Check
for proper flame. Reset controls to off.
