Brackets
Installation
instructions
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. Those 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.

The anti-tip bracket attaches to the floor at the back of
the range to hold range rear center leg. 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
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 17)).
3.
Mark on the floor the location of the 4 mounting
holes shown on the template. For easier installation,
3/16"(0,48cm)
diameter pilot holes 1/2"(1,27cm)
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 18). If attaching to concrete floor, first
drill 3/16"(0,48cm)
dia. pilot holes using a masonry
drill bit.
5.
Be sure the leveling legs and leveling device are at
the highest position they can be.
6.
Slide range into place making sure rear center leg
is trapped by the anti-tip bracket (Figure 18). Lower
the range by adjusting the leveling legs and leveling
device until the underside of the cooktop is sitting
leveled 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.
