GAS COOKTOP INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

5. Install pressure Regulator

Install the pressure regulator with the arrow on the
regulator pointing up toward the unit in a position
where you can reach the access cap.
WARNING
Do not make the connection too
tight. The regulator is die cast. Overtightening
may crack the regulator resulting in a gas leak
and possible fire or explosion.

Assemble the flexible connector from the gas
supply pipe to the pressure regulator in the
following order:
1. manual shutoff valve
2. 1/2" (1.3 cm) nipple
3. 1/2" (1.3 cm) flare union adapter
4. flexible connector
5. 1/2" (1.3 cm) flare union adapter
6. 1/2" (1.3 cm) nipple
7. pressure regulator
Use pipe-joint compound made for use with
Natural and lP/Propane gas to seal all gas
connections. If flexible connectors are used, be
certain connectors are not kinked.
The supply line must be equipped with an
approved manual shutoff valve. This valve should
be located in the same room as the cooktop
and should be in a location that allows ease of
opening and closing. Do not block access to
the shutoff valve. The valve is for turning on or
shutting off gas to the appliance.

Once regulator is in place, open the shutoff valve
in the gas supply line. Wait a few minutes for gas
to move through the gas line.
Check for leaks. After connecting the cooktop to
the gas supply, check the system for leaks with a
manometer. If a manometer is not available, turn
on the gas supply and use a liquid leak detector
(or soap and water) at all joints and connections
to check for leaks.
leaks from gas connections. Checking for leaks
with a flame may result in a fire or explosion.
Tighten all connections if necessary to prevent
gas leakage in the cooktop or supply line.
Check alignment of control knob valves after
connecting the cooktop to the gas supply to be
sure the cooktop manifold pipe has not moved. A
misalignment could cause the valve stems to rub
on the control panel, resulting in a gas leak at the
valve.
Disconnect this cooktop and its individual
manual shutoff valve from the gas supply piping
system during any pressure testing of that system
at test pressures greater than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa or
14"water column).
Isolate the cooktop from the gas supply piping
system by closing its individual manual shutoff
valve during any pressure testing of the gas
supply piping system at test pressures equal to or
less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa or 14" water column).
