Flexible metal appliance connector:
If local codes permit, use a 1/2"or 3/4" I.D. flexible stainless
steel tubing gas connector, designed by CSA to connect
the cooktop to the rigid gas supply line.
A %" male pipe thread is needed for connection to the
female pipe threads of the inlet to the appliance pressure
Do not kink or damage the flexible metal tubing when
moving the cooktop.
Rigid pipe connection:
The rigid pipe connection requires a combination of pipe
fittings to obtain an in-line connection to the cooktop. The
rigid pipe must be level with the cooktop connection. All
strains must be removed from the supply and fuel lines so
cooktop will be level and in line.
Must include a shutoff valve:
The supply line must be equipped with a manual shutoff valve.
This valve should be located in the same room but external to
the cooktop. It should be in a location that allows ease of
opening and closing. Do not block access to shutoff valve.
The valve is for turning on or shutting off gas to the cooktop.

B. Shutoff valve "open" position
Gas Pressure Regulator
The gas pressure regulator supplied with this cooktop must be
used. The inlet pressure to the regulator should be as follows for
Minimum pressure: 5" (15.2 cm) WCP
Maximum pressure: 7" to 14" (17.8 cm to 35.5 cm) WCP
Minimum pressure: 11" (27.9 cm) WCP
Maximum pressure: 14" (35.5 cm) WCP
Contact local gas supplier if you are not sure about the inlet
Burner Input Requirements
Input ratings shown on the model/serial rating plate are for
elevations up to 2,000 ft (609.6 m).
For elevations above 2,000 ft (609.6 m), ratings are reduced at a
rate of 4% for each 1,000 ft (304.8 m) above sea level (not
applicable for Canada).
Gas Supply Pressure Testing
Line pressure testing above 1/2psi gauge (14" WCP)
The cooktop and its individual manual shutoff valve must be
from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures greater than
1/2psi (3.5 kPa).
Line pressure testing at 1/2psi gauge (14" WCP) 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 that system at test pressures equal to or less than
1/2psi (3.5 kPa).
NOTE: The foam strip protects the underside of the cooktop
glass from debris and helps the cooktop sit flat on uneven
Decide on the final location for the cooktop. Locate existing wiring
to prevent drilling into or severing wiring during installation.
On Glass Cooktop models only:
1. Place the cooktop upside down on a protective surface.
2. Remove foam strip from literature package. Remove backing
from foam strip. Apply foam strip adhesive-side
bottom of cooktop, flush with edge.
