gas supply
line.
Install a shut-off
valve.
Securely
tighten a_t gas
con nections.
If connected
to LP, have a
qualified
person make sure gas
pressure
does not exceed 14"
water column.
Examples
of a quamified person
include licensed

personnel
Failure to do so can result in
death, explosion,
or fire.
Observe all governing
codes and
ordinances,
Important:
Cooktop must be connected
to a regulated gas supply,
A
RThis 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
Z22&1 --latest
edition** or CANI --
B149.1 or 2**.

Input ratings shown on the
model/serial rating plate are for elevations
up to 2,000 feet (610 m). For elevations
above 2,000 feet (610 m), ratings are
reduced at a rate of 4% for each 1,000
feet (305 m) above sea level.
EThe cooktop is equipped for use
with NATURAL gas. It is design-certified
by CSA International for NATURAL and
LR gases with appropriate conversion.
The model/serial rating plate, located on
the underside of the burner box, 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
the local gas supplier. See Page 2 for LR
gas conversion instructions.
mProvide a gas supply line of 3/4"
rigid pipe to the cooktop location. A
smaller size pipe on long runs may result
in insufficient gas supply. Pipe-joint
compounds, suitable for use with L.R gas,
must be used. With LR gas, piping or
tubing size can be 1/2" minimum. LR gas
suppliers usually determine the size and
materials used on the system.
E
mIf local codes permit, a new AGA or
CSA design-certified, 4-5 foot (! .2-1.5 m)
long, 1/2" or 3/4" I.D., flexible metal
appliance connector is recommended for
connecting this cooktop to the gas supply
line. Do Not kink or damage the flexible
connector when moving the cooktop. The
pressure regulator has 3/8" female pipe
threads. You will need to determine the
fittings required, depending on the size of
your gas supply line, flexible metal
connector and shutoff valve.

EThe supply line shall be equipped
with an approved 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.

fittings must be used to obtain an in-line
connection to the cooktop. All strains
must be removed from the supply and
fuel lines so cooktop will be level and in
line.
mThe regulator must be checked at
a minimum 1-inch (2.5 cm) water column
above the set pressure. The inlet pressure
to the regulator should be as follows for
operation and checking the regulator
setting:
NATURAL GAS:
Set pressure 4 inches (10.2 cm).
Supply pressure 7-14 inches (17.8 cm
to 35.5 cm) maximum.
L.P. GAS:
Minimum pressure 10 inches (28.4 cm).
Supply pressure 14 inches (38.8 cm).
mLine pressure testing:
Testing above 1t2 psi (3.8 kPa)
(14 inches (38.6 cm)) W.C. (gauge)
The cooktop and its individual shutoff
valve must be disconnected from the gas
supply piping system during any pressure
testing of that system at test pressures
greater than 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
Testing below 1t2 psi (3.8 kPa)
(14 inches (38.6 cm)) WoC.(gauge) or
lower
The cooktop 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).
Electrical
Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded
3-prong
outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Failure to follow these
instructions can result in death,
fire, or emectricamshock.
tf 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 cooktop
is properly grounded.
Do Not ground to a gas pipe.
A 120-volt, 60-Hz, AC-only, 15-ampere,
fused electrical supply is required. A
time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is
recommended. It is recommended that a
separate circuit serving only this
appliance be provided.
