• If using a bali valve, it shall be a T=handle
• A flexible gas connector, when used, must not
exceed 3 feet.
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
IMPORTANT: Range must be connected to a
regulated gas supply.
This installation must conform with local
codes and ordinances. In the absence of
local codes, installations must conform
with American National Standard, National Fuel
Gas Code ANSI Z223.1 -- latest edition or CANI=
B149 --latest
edition* installation codes.
Input ratings shown on the modeVsedal
rating plate are for elevations up to 2,000
feet (609.6 m). For elevations above
2,000 feet (609.6 m), ratings are reduced at a rate
of 4% for each 1,00O feet (304.8 m) above sea
level. (Not applicable for Canada.)
This range is equipped for use with
Natural gas. It is design=certified by
AGA/CSA for Natural and LR gas with
appropriate conversion. The model/serial rating
plate, located on the oven flame behind the
drawer, has information on the type of gas that can
be used. If this information does not agree with the
type of gas available, check with your KitchenAid
Provide a gas supply line of 3/4" (1.9 cm)
rigid pipe to the range location. A smaller
size pipe on long runs may result in
insufficient gas supply. Pipe=joint compounds
appropriate for use with LR gas must be used.
With LR gas, piping or tubing size can be 1/2"
(1.3 cm) minimum. LR gas suppliers usually
determine the size and materials used on the
Copies of the standards listed may be obtained from:

for connecting this range to the gas
supply line. Do Not kink or damage the flexible
tubing when moving the range. A 1/2" (1.3 cm)
male pipe thread is needed for connection to
pressure regulator female pipe threads.

The supply line shall be equipped with an
approved shutoff valve. This valve should
be located in the same room, but external
to the range, and should be in a location that
allows ease of opening and closing. Do Not block
access to shutoff valve.

line, a combination of pipe fittings
must be used to obtain an in-line
connection to the range. All strains must be
removed from the supply and fuel lines so range
will be level and in line.
The regulator setting must be checked at
a minimum of 1 inch water column above
the manifold pressure. The inlet pressure
to the regulator should be as follows for operation:
Natural gas:
Manifold pressure -- 5 inches
Maximum pressure -- 14 inches
LR gas:
Manifold pressure -- 10 inches
Maximum pressure -- 14 inches
Line pressure testing:
Testing above 1/2 psi (gauge): The range
and its individual shutoff vaN'e must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system
during any pressure testing of that system at test
pressures greater than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
Testing at 1/2 psi (gauge) or lower: The range must
be isolated 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).
Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded
3oprong outtet.
Do not remove ground
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension
Faiture to follow these instructions can result
in death, fire, or electrical
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is
used, it is recommended that a qualified electrician
determine that the ground path is adequate.
Check with a qualified electrician if you are not
sure whether the range is properly grounded.
Do not ground to a gas pipe.
A 120=volt, 60=Hz, ACoonJy, 15=ampere, fused
electrical circuit is required. A time=delay fuse or
circuit breaker is recommended. It is recommended
that a separate circuit serving only this range be
Electronic ignition systems operate within wide
voltage limits, but proper ground and polarity are
necessary. In addition to checking that the outlet
provides 120=volt power and is correctly grounded,
the outlet must be checked by a qualified
electrician to see if it is wired with correct polarity.
The wiring diagram is included in the literature
package. The wiring diagram can also be found on
the back of the range.
NOTE: The metal chassis of the range must be
grounded in order for the control panel to work. if
the metal chassis of the range is not grounded, no
keypads will operate. Check with a qualified
electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the
metal chassis of range is grounded.
For personal safety, this range is equipped with a
power supply cord having a 3=prong ground plug.
To minimize possible shock hazard, the cord must
be plugged into a mating 3=prong, ground=type
outlet, grounded in accordance with the National
Electrical Code, ANSVNFPA 70 -- latest edition*
or CSA Standard C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code,
Part 1, -- latest edition** and all local codes and
ordinances. If a mating outlet is not available, it is
the personal responsibility and obligation of the
customer to have a properly grounded, 3=prong
outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
WARNING : improper connection of the equipment=
grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric
shock. Check with a qualified electrician or
servicemen if you are in doubt as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded. Do not modify the
plug provided with the appliance = if it will not fit the
outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified
