Connecting The Range
The range must be installed in accordance with Local and
National Electric Code (NEC) ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1993
See rating plate on front of range for total connected kw
Your local utility company will tell you whether the present
service to your home is adequate.
It may be
necessary to increase the size of the wiring to the house and
service switch to take care of the electrical load demanded
by the range. The kilowatt rating for the range is specified on
the name plate on the range.
Most local Building Regulations and Codes require that all
electrical wiring be done by licensed electricians. All wiring
should conform to Local and National Electrical Codes. This
range requires a single phase three wire 120/240 volt, 60 Hz,
AC circuit. Wiring codes require a separate circuit be run
from the main entrance panel to the range and that it be
equipped with separate disconnect switch and fuses, either
in the main entrance panel or in a separate switch and fuse
box. In some communities,
a solid or flexible continuous
armored conduit must be used from main entrance panel to
the terminal box on the rear of the range. Others will permit
the termination of the range circuit at a polarized three orfou r
wire plug-in outlet placed at a convenient point near the
back of the range. The range is then connected to this outlet
through an approved service cord (pigtail) fastened securely
to the terminal block with proper strain relief at the range and
a three or four pronged plug at the opposite end.
On models using service cords (Pigtail) the front surface of
the range outlet must be mounted flush to wall. See figures
10A and 10C.
On models not provided with a service cord and models
having a conduit,

below and with reference to the appropriate illustration. (See
figures 10A thru 10D). After installation, insure tightness of
all electrical connections and replace all covers.
NOTE: For cord replacement - ONLY a power supply cord
rated at 240 volts minimum, 40 amperes or 50 amperes
power supply cord that is marked for use with nominal 1 3/8"
(34.93 mm) diameter connection opening, with closed loop
terminals and marked for use with ranges shall be used.
