IMPORTANT:
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
FOR THE
LOCAL ELECTRICAL
INSPECTOR'S
USE
WARNING:
DO NOT PLUG THE "PIGTAIL"
POWER
CORD
INTO
A
LIVE
WALL
RECEPTACLE
BEFORE
CORD
IS
PERMANENTLY
CONNECTED
TO
THE
TERMINAL
BLOCK.
1. This appliance
must be connected
to the proper
electrical
voltage
and frequency
as specified
on
nameplate.
Models rated at 15 KW on 240 volts
(11.25 KW on 208 V) or more require a separate 50
ampere circuit. Models rated less than 15 KW on 240
volts (11.25 KW on 208 V) require a separate 40
ampere circuit. Fuse both sides of the line. DO NOT
fuse the neutral. A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker
is recommended.
Wire sizes must conform to the
requirements
of the National Electrical Code and/or
local codes and ordinances for the kilowatt rating of
the range. The nameplate
is located on the front
frame of the main oven behind the main door. For
the Eye-level
Microwave,
it is on the front frame
behind microwave
oven door.
2. All wires ending at the appliance must terminate in
ring type terminals.
3. All power cords and cables to appliance
must be
fitted with a UL approved strain relief.
4. The range should be connected
with copper wire
only. Aluminum
wire requires special connectors.
Improper use may create a fire hazard.
5. Appliance
may be connected
directly to the fused
disconnect
(or circuit breaker) box through flexible
armored or non-metallic sheathed copper cable. Do
not use an extension cord. Allow 4 feet (min.) slack
so appliance can be moved for servicing. Wire sizes
must conform to the ampere rating of the range. See
paragraph C-l above.
6. WARNING:
THE TERMINAL
BLOCK
ON THE
APPLIANCE
ACCEPTS
COPPER
WIRE ONLY,
NOT ALUMINUM.
IF ALUMINUM
HOUSE WIRING
MUST
BE CONNECTED,
USE ONE OF THE
FOLLOWING
PROCEDURES:
l
Connect copper wire to the range terminal block
(using ring terminals).
l
Connect the copper wire to the aluminum
house
wiring using special connectors
UL listed and
designed for joining copper to aluminum.
Wire size and connectors
must conform
to
the ampere
rating of the range as stated in
paragraph
C-l.
Attach special ring connectors
to the aluminum
house wiring that are UL listed and designed
for joining copper to aluminum.
These special
ring connectors
(available
at electrical
supply
houses) can be attached
directly to the range
terminal block.
The connectors
must conform
to the ampere
rating of the range as stated in paragraph
C-l.
7. If local codes permit, your range may be connected
with a three wire flexible type, UL listed "pigtail"
power cord of the proper ampere rating.* Plug must
match
a 3-wire
NEMA type lo-50R
receptacle
(shown below).
8. CAUTION:
FOR MOBILE HOME USE, A 4-WIRE
POWER CORD MUST BE USED. This appliance is
manufactured
with ground connected to frame. This
must be revised so green ground wire of 4-wire
power cord is connected
to frame.
If using a 4-wire NEMA type 14-50R receptacle
(shown above) you must use a matching 4-wire UL
listed "pigtail"
power cord. Cord should be type SRD
or SRDT, at least 4 feet long with all conductors
ending in ring terminals
at the appliance.
MINIMUM
CONDUCTOR
SIZE. . .
(4-WIRE COPPER POWER CORD)
For 40 ampere circuits: two No. 8 conductors,
one
No. 10 white neutral, and one No. 8 green ground.
For 50 ampere circuits: two No. 6 conductors,
one
No. 8 neutral and one No. 6 green ground.
*CAUTION:
Power Cord Requirements
-
Only a
power supply cord kit rated at 240 volts, 50 amperes
and investigated
for use with ranges shall be used.
