WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Use a new CSA International approved gas supply line.
Install a shut-off valve.
Securely tighten all gas connections.
If connected to LP, have a qualified person make sure
gas pressure does not exceed 14" (36 cm) water
column.
Examples of a qualified person include:
licensed heating personnel,
authorized gas company personnel, and
authorized service personnel.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
IMPORTANT: This installation must conform with all local codes
and ordinances. In the absence of local codes, installation must
conform with American National Standard, National Fuel Gas
Code ANSI Z223.1 - latest edition or CAN/CGA B149 - latest
edition.
IMPORTANT: Range cooktop must be connected to a regulated
gas supply.
Type of Gas
Natural Gas:
This range is design-certified by CSA International for use with
Natural gas or, after proper conversion, for use with LP gas.
This range is factory set for use with Natural gas. The model/
serial rating plate located on the right vertical surface of the
oven door frame has information on the types of gas that can
be used. If the types of gas listed do not include the type of
gas available, check with the local gas supplier.
LP Gas conversion:
Conversion must be done by a qualified service technician.
No attempt shall be made to convert the appliance from the gas
specified on the model/serial rating plate for use with a different
gas without consulting the serving gas supplier. To convert to LP
gas, use the LP gas conversion kit provided with your range. The
parts for this kit are in the literature package supplied with the
range.

Gas Supply Requirements

Gas Supply Line
Provide a gas supply line of ¾" (1.9 cm) rigid pipe to the
range location. A smaller size pipe on longer runs may result
in insufficient gas supply. Pipe-joint compounds that resist
the action of LP gas must be used. Do not use TEFLON
tape. With LP gas, piping or tubing size can be ½" (1.3 cm)
minimum. Usually, LP gas suppliers determine the size and
materials used in the system.
Flexible metal appliance connector:
Rigid pipe connection:
The rigid pipe connection requires a combination of pipe
fittings to obtain an in-line connection to the range. The rigid
pipe must be level with the range connection. All strains must
be removed from the supply and fuel lines so range will be
level and in line.
Must include a manual shutoff valve:
The supply line must be equipped with a manual shutoff
valve. This valve should be located in the same room but
external to the range. It should be in a location that allows
ease of opening and closing. Do not block access to shutoff
valve. The valve is for turning on or shutting off gas to the
range.

If local codes permit, a new CSA design-certified,
4 - 5 ft (122 - 152.4 cm) long,
¾" (1.9 cm) I.D., flexible metal appliance connector may
be used for connecting range to the gas supply line.
A ½" (1.3 cm) male pipe thread is needed for connection
to the female pipe threads of the inlet to the appliance
pressure regulator.
Do not kink or damage the flexible metal tubing when
moving the range.
