6. Provide
an Adequate
Gas Supply
Read these instructions carefully before
connecting this unit to a gas supply.
The units covered in these instructions are designed to
operate on natural gas at 4" of manifold pressure or on
LP gas at 10" of manifold pressure.
A convertible pressure regulator is connected in series
with the manifold of the wall oven unit and must remain
in series with the supply line, regardless of which type of
gas is being used.
For proper operation,
the maximum inlet pressure to
the regulator must not exceed 14" of water column
(W.C.) pressure.
To check the regulator, the inlet pressure must be at
least 1 " (or 3.4 kPa) greater than the regulator _ressure
setting. If the regulator is set for 4", the inlet pressure
must be at least 5". If the regulator is set for 10", the
inlet pressure must be at least 11 ".
A manual shut-off valve must be installed on the gas
supply line external to the unit and where it can be
easily reached for the purpose of turning the gas to the
unit on and off.
The gas supply line to the unit should be 1/2" (1.3 cm) or
3A" (1.9 cm) pipe.
To avoid pilot outage (if applicable) close all openings in
the cabinet cavity that encloses this unit. All openings
around gas service outlets must be closed at the time of

If applicable, remove broiler or storage drawer by pulling

Check for leaks. After connecting gas, check system
for leaks with a manometer. If a manometer is not
available shut all pilots off (if present), turn on the gas
supply to the unit and use a liquid leak detector at all
joints and connections.

if necessary to prevent gas
leakage in the wall oven or supply line.
A pipe joint sealant resistant to the action
of LP Gas must be used on all pipe connections.
Do not use a flame to check for leaks
from gas connections. Checking for leaks with a flame
may result in a fire or explosion.

Isolate the wall oven from the gas supply
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 1/2psig.
