Installation Instructions - KitchenAid KFGU706VSS02 Installation Instructions Manual

30" (76.2 cm) and 36" (91.4 cm) gas built-in cooktop
Hide thumbs


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
proper operation:
Natural Gas:
Minimum pressure: 5" (12.7 cm) WCP
Maximum pressure: 7" to 14" (17.8 cm to 35.5 cm) WCP
LP Gas:
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).
For elevations above 6,560 ft (1999.5 m) a high altitude kit is
needed to avoid any reduced power output. See separate LP gas
conversion instructions sheet.
Gas Supply Pressure Testing
Gas supply pressure for testing regulator must be at least
1" water column pressure above the manifold pressure shown on
the model/serial
rating plate.
Line pressure testing above 1/2psi gauge (14" WCP)
The cooktop and its individual shutoff valve must be
from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of
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 the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to
or less than 1/2psi (3.5 kPa).
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install cooktop.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Style 1: Cooktop
over undercounter
built-in oven
IMPORTANT: Clamping brackets should not be used.
1. Using 2 or more people, place cooktop right side up into the
NOTE: Make sure that the front edge of the cooktop is
parallel to the front edge of the countertop.
If repositioning
needed, lift entire cooktop up from cutout to avoid scratching
the countertop.
Style 2: Cooktop
over cabinets
1. Determine whether your cabinet construction
clearance for installing clamping brackets at cooktop base
ends. This is the recommended
location. Clamping brackets
can be installed on the front and back of cooktop base
bottom, if necessary.
S ¸
A. Attachment
screw holes for optional
front and back
B. Clamping bracket (end locations recommended)
C. Cooktop base bottom
D. Attachment
E. Attachment
screw location (recommended)
The clamping brackets can be installed before or after the
cooktop is placed into the cutout. Complete the following
steps for the option you choose.
