GAS CONNECTIONS (All Units), Continued Have the dealer where you purchase your new range install it or have him recommend a qualified installer. Installation must conform with local codes. in the absence of local codes, the installation must conform with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1- Latest Edition in the U.S.A.
BACKGUARD INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS Gas Ranges A. Remove main top. B. Place the backguard on top of end panels at the rear of range. C. Connect the “disconnect plug”, for power to backguard if equipped with electrical features. See No. 1. D.
WALL CLEARANCES All units must be installed in accordance to minimum rear and side wall clearance and clearances extended vertically above cooking top which are stated on the serial plate. (The serial plate is located below the cooktop.) ANY OPENINGS IN THE WALL BEHIND THE UNIT AND IN THE FLOOR UNDER THE UNIT MUST BE SEALED.
ALIGNMENTS AND ADJUSTMENTS Installation It is the responsibility of the installer to make certain that the range is properly adjusted at the time of installation. Situations caused by improper adjustments or improper installation are not covered under the warranty. Any expenses incurred due to such situations will not be paid by the manufacturer of the appliance.
To Convert and/or Adjust 1. Convertible Pressure Regulator The inlet pressure of the gas supply shall be in accordance with the nominal inlet pressure of the regulator used on the range or 1/2 psig maximum. The range should be tested by pressurizing the regulator with an inlet pressure at least 1 inch water column above the manufacturer's specified manifold pressure shown on the serial plate.
ALIGNMENTS AND ADJUSTMENTS, Continued 2. Gas System Operating Characteristics Cooking on your new gas range may differ slightly than on previous ranges because of a new system designed to better regulate temperature control. Most ovens have a burner that cycles on then off to maintain an average temperature. Gas ranges with standing pilot ignition have a revolutionary thermostat that continually adjusts gas flow to hold a constant temperature without completely shutting off the burner.
ALIGNMENTS AND ADJUSTMENT, Continued Keep appliance area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and liquids. WARNING Do not obstruct the flow of air that is necessary for combustion and ventilation. 4. Top Burner Valves Top burner valves have orifices that are dedicated to the type of fuel to be used. These orifices are not adjustable.
ALIGNMENTS AND ADJUSTMENT, Continued In the event of a power failure, the top burners can be lit by holding a lighted match near the burner head and turning the appropriate top burner knob to the “LITE” position. Top Burner Height Make sure the top burners are properly positioned.

ALIGNMENTS AND ADJUSTMENT, Continued ALIGNMENTS AND ADJUSTMENT, Continued Hot Oven Restart Hot Oven Restart If you turn off the oven but then decide to turn it back on before it has cooled to room If you turn off the oven but then decide to turn it back on before it has cooled to room temperature, the burner may not light properly.
ALIGNMENTS AND ADJUSTMENTS, Continued Ovens with Pilotless Electric Ignition: Glow Bar Ignition System (-7 Models) System Operation The glow-bar ignition system consists of three main components: 1. The thermostat (or range control). 2. The glow-bar ignitor. 3. The oven gas valve (also called the safety valve).
OPERATION OF RANGE Using Your Range The range may have only part of the features described within this manual. If your range has some features which are not covered in this manual, these features will be covered in other enclosed literature. Top Burner Operation Note: When boiling food, the highest temperature that can be reached is the boiling point.
Baking Follow the recipe instructions when baking. Use correct ingredients, measure them carefully, and use the correct type and size of utensil suggested in the recipe. Remember to preheat properly. Avoid opening of the oven door as much as possible when baking. When baking cakes in glass baking dishes, lower the oven temperature 25ºF to prevent browning of the bottom and sides before the top becomes brown.
To protect the oven bottom surface, place a piece of aluminum foil slightly larger than the baking dish on the rack below to catch any boilovers. It should not completely cover the rack as this would cause uneven heat in the oven. Aluminum foil should not be placed on the oven bottom.
OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT Continuous Cleaning Feature If your oven has the continuous cleaning feature, it will have a dull gray finish with white speckles that has been blended with a special catalytic material. (If the oven has a glossy finish, it is standard porcelain enamel without the continuous cleaning feature.) Before Using Your Oven–Read These Instructions Carefully.
OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT, Continued Backguard and Control Panel Features Electrical Grounding Instructions: This appliance, when equipped with electrical equipment, has a three-prong grounding plug for your protection WARNI N G and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded receptable.

CLEANING THE RANGE, Continued prevent this, open the oven door for the first few seconds of initial oven heat-up. This will allow the moist air within the oven to escape without the forming of visible moisture on the range. The amount of moisture will depend upon the humidity of the air and water content of the food being cooked.
