Range Installation

The electrical power to the range must
be shut off while line connections are being made.
Failure to do so could result in serious injury or death.
Countertop Preparation
• The cooktop sides of the range fi t over the cutout
edge of your countertop.
• If you have a square fi nish (fl at) countertop, no
countertop preparation is required. Cooktop sides lay
directly on edge of countertop.
• Formed front-edged countertops must have molded
edge shaved fl at 3/4" (1.9 cm) from each front corner
of opening (Figure 3).
• Tile countertops may need trim cut back 3/4"(1.9
cm) from each front corner and/or rounded edge
fl attened (Figure 3).
• If the existing cutout width is greater than
30 1/16" (76.4 cm), reduce the ¾" (1.9 cm)
(1.9 cm)
Figure 3
This range is designed to hang from the countertop. It
does not rest on the fl oor.
Be sure the bottom of any wall cabinets are a minimum
of 30" (76.2 cm) above the rangetop area.
To eliminate the hazard or reaching over heated surface
units, cabinet storage space located above the surface
units should be avoided. If cabinet storage is to be
provided, the hazard can be reduced by installing a range
hood that projects horizontally a minimum of 5" (12.7
cm) beyond the bottom front edge of the cabinets.

Formed or tile countertop
trimmed ¾" (1.9 cm)
back at front corners of
countertop opening.
Important Note: Door removal is not a requirement for
installation of the range, but is an added convenience.
The appliance should be placed on a table or the front of
the appliance should be raised to be able to fully open
the door. Please refer to the Use and Care Guide for
oven door removal instructions.
1. Install base cabinets 30" (76.2cm) apart, and be
sure they are plumb and level before attaching to
2. Cut countertop exactly as shown in Figure 1. Shave
raised edge level to clear 31 1/2" (81cm) wide rim
on rolled edge styled countertops.
3. Install the wiring junction box in an adjoining cabinet
or under the fl oor (range has 48"/122cm of conduit).
Cut 1-1/4" (3.2cm) hole to bring conduit to the
junction box.
4. To provide an optimum installation, the top surface
of the countertop must be level and fl at (lie on the
same plane) around the 3 sides that are adjacent to
range cooktop. Proper adjustments to make the top
fl at should be made or gaps between the countertop
may occur.
To reduce the risk of damaging your
appliance, do not handle or manipulate it by the
ceramic glass. Manipulate with care.
6. Move range in front of cabinet opening.
7. Push the electric conduit through the hole and
attach it to the junction box. Leave enough slack in
the conduit to allow the range to be pulled forward
several inches for service if necessary.
8. Oven door is heavy. It is advisable to remove door
and eliminate its weight as range is lifted into
position. See oven door removal instructions in
the Use and Care Guide. NEVER lift the appliance
by the control panel doing so may damage the
control panel. Lift the range into position on
the countertop and make sure the appliance is
centered in the cutout opening to be sure that
the flanges of the upper side panel are sitting
on the countertop to avoid glass breakage.
