To reduce the risk of tipping of the range,
the range must be secured to the floor by properly installed
anti-tip bracket and screws packed with the range. These
parts are located in the oven. Failure to install the anti-tip
bracket will allow the range to tip over if excessive weight
is placed on an open door or if a child climbs upon it.
Serious injury might result from spilled hot liquids or from
the range itself.
Follow the instructions below to install the anti-tip
brackets.
If range is ever moved to a different location, the anti-tip
brackets must also be moved and installed with the
range.
Tools Required:
Adjustable Wrench
Ratchet
Drill & I/8"(0,32
cm) bit
5/16" (0,8 cm) Nutdriver
Level
The anti-tip bracket attaches to the floor at the back of the
range to prevent range from tipping. When fastening
bracket to the floor, be sure that screws do not penetrate
electrical wiring or plumbing. The screws provided will
work in either wood or concrete.
1.
Draw a center line (CL) on the floor where the range
should be installed. Also draw a line on the floor at
the range back position if there is no wall.
2.
Unfold paper template and place it flat on the floor
with the right rear corner positioned exactly on the
intersection of the center and back lines you just drew
before. (Use the diagram below to locate brackets if
template is not available (Figure 15)).
3.
Mark on the floor the location of the 4 mounting holes
shown on the template. For easier installation, 3/
16"(0,48 cm) diameter pilot holes 1/2"(1,27 cm) deep
can be drilled into the floor.
4.
Remove template and place bracket on floor. Line up
holes in bracket with marks on floor and attach with 4
screws provided. Bracket must be secured to solid floor
(Figure 16). If attaching to concrete floor, first drill 3/
16"(0,48 cm) dia. pilot holes using masonry drill bit.
5.
Be sure the 4 leveling legs are at the highest position
they can be.
6.
Slide range into place making sure structure of the
range is trapped by the anti-tip bracket (Figure 15).
Lower the range by adjusting the 4 leveling legs until
the underside of the cooktop is sitting level on the
countertop. Refer to "Leveling the Range" section.
7.
After installation, verify that the anti-tip bracket is
engaged by grasping the top rear edge of the range and
carefully attempt to tilt it forward to make sure range is
properly anchored.
