To eliminate the risk of burns or
fire by reaching over heated surface units, do not
have cabinet storage space above the range. If there
is cabinet storage space above range, reduce risk by
installing a range hood that projects horizontally a
minimum of 5" (12.7 cm) beyond the bottom of the
cabinet.
_
Countertop
Preparation
• The cooktop sides of the range fit over the cutout
edge of your countertop.
• If you have a square finish (flat) countertop,
no
countertop preparation is required. Cooktop sides lay
directly on edge of countertop.
• Formed front-edged
countertops must have molded
edge shaved flat 3/4" (1.9 cm) from each front corner
of opening (Figure 7).
Tile countertops may need trim cut back 3/4"(1.9
cm) from each front corner and/or rounded edge
flattened (Figure 7).

Range Installation
Important
Note: Door removal is not a requirement for
installation of the range, but is an added convenience.
Refer to the Use and Care Guide for oven door removal
instructions.
The range cooktop
overlaps the countertop
at the
sides and the range rests on the floor. The cooktop is
311/2" (80 cm) wide.
Install base cabinets 30" (76.2 cm) apart. Make sure
they are plumb and level before attaching
cooktop.
Shave raised countertop
edge to clear 311/2" (80 cm)
wide range top rim.
Install cabinet doors 31 " (78.7 cm) min. apart so as
not to interfere with range door opening.
Cutout countertop exactly as shown on page 1.
Make sure the four leveling legs (front and rear) are
setup higher than the height of the cabinet (shown
on page 3).
Install
the
anti-tip
bracket
at
this point
before
placing
the range at its final
position.
Follow the installation
instructions
at the
last page or on the anti-tip bracket template supplied
with the range.
To provide an optimum
installation,
the top surface
of the countertop
must be level and flat (lie on the
same plane) around the 3 sides that are adjacent to
range cooktop. Proper adjustments to make the top
flat should be made or gaps between the countertop
and the range cooktop may occur.
To reduce the risk of damaging
your
appliance,
do not handle or manipulate
it by the
cooktop. Manipulate with care.
Position range in front of the cabinet opening.
Make sure that the underside of the cooktop
clears
the countertop. If necessary, raise the unit by lowering
the leveling legs.
Level the range
(see section 6). The floor where
the range is to be installed must be level. Follow the
instructions under "Leveling the Range".
Slide the range into the cutout opening.
