PROVIDE ADEQUATE
GAS
SUPPLY
This cooktop
is designed
to operate
on natural
gas
onlv at 5" (12.7 cm) of wa tel" colmn n pressure.
It is
fi)I" tlse
with
nattlral
gas
onlv
and
is not
convertible
to I,P gas.
A pressure
regulator
is to be connected
in series
with the manifold
of the cooktop
and must
remain
in series
with the supply
line,
For proper
operation,
the nmxinmm
inlet
pressure
to the regulator
must
be no more
than
10" (25.4 cm) water cohunn
pressure
fl)r natural
gas. For checking
the regulatoi;
the inlet
pressure
must
be at least 1" (2.5 cm) greater
than
the
regulator
output
setting,
If the regulator
is set for
5" (l 2.7 cm) of water
cohmm
pressure,
the inlet
pressure must be at least 6" (l 5.2 cm).
For ease of installation,
and if local codes permit,
the gas supply
line into
the cooktop
should
be
1/2"
(13 ram)

PRESSURE TESTING
The nmxinmm
gas supply
pressure
for the
regulator
supplied
on this appliance
is 14"
(35.5 cm) _4'.C. The
test pressure
tor checking
this regulator
must be at least 6" (15.2 cm) W.C.
for natural
gas. It is shipped
ti'om the thctorv
set
for natural
gas at 5" (12.7 cm) W.C.
This appliance
and its individual
shut-oil
valve
must
be disconnected
ti'om
the gas supply
piping
system
during
any pressure
testing
of that system
at test pressures
in excess of ½ PSIG.
This appliance
m list be isolated
fl'om
the gas
supply
piping
system
by closing
its individual
manual
shut-off
valve during
any pressure
testing
of the gas supply
piping
system
at test pressures
equal
to or less than
K, PSIG.
