Gas supply requirements

Explosion Hazard
Use a new AGA or CSA approved gas
supply line.
Install a shutoff valve.
Securely tighten all gas connections.
If connected to LP, have a qualified
person make sure gas pressure does
not exceed 14" (35.6 cm) water column.
Examples of a qualified person
licensed heating personnel,
authorized gas company
personnel, and
authorized service personnel.
Failure to do so can result in death,
explosion, or fire.
In the State of Massachusetts, the
following installation instructions
• Installations and repairs must be
performed by a qualified or licensed
contractor, plumber, or gasfitter
qualified or licensed by the State
of Massachusetts.
• If using a ball valve, it shall be a
T-handle type.
• A flexible gas connector, when used,
must not exceed 3 feet.
Observe all governing codes and
This installation must conform with local
codes and ordinances. In the absence of
local codes, installations must conform
with American National Standard,
National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1 —
latest edition*.
Input ratings shown on the model/serial
rating plate are for elevations up to 2,000
feet (610 m). For assistance when
installing the range at higher elevations,
contact your local service company.
Type of gas: This range is design-
certified by CSA International for use
with Natural gas or, after proper
conversion, for use with L.P . gas. This
range is factory set for use with Natural
gas. Gas conversion instructions are
provided in "Gas conversions" section.
The model/serial rating plate located on
the frame behind the storage drawer or
broiler door has information on the type
of gas that can be used. If the type of
gas listed does not agree with the type of
gas available, check with the local gas
supplier. Conversion must be done by a
qualified service technician.
Gas supply line: Provide a gas supply
line of 3/4" rigid pipe to the range
location. With L.P . gas, piping or tubing
size can be 1/2" minimum. A smaller size
pipe on longer runs may result in
insufficient gas supply. Usually, L.P . gas
suppliers determine the size and
materials used in the system.
Pipe-joint compounds made for use with
L.P . gas must be used on pipe threads
Flexible metal appliance connector: If
local codes permit, a new AGA or CSA
design-certified, 1/2" or 3/4" I.D., flexible
metal appliance connector is
recommended for connecting range to
the gas supply line. A 1/2" male pipe
thread nipple is needed for connection to
pressure regulator female pipe threads.
Do not kink or damage the flexible metal
tubing when moving the range.
Rigid pipe
Requires a
combination of
pipe fittings to
obtain an in-line connection to the range.
All strains must be removed from the
supply and fuel lines so range will be
level and in line.
Shutoff valve: The supply line must be
equipped with a manual shutoff valve.
This valve should be located in the same
room as the range and should be in a
location that allows ease of opening and
closing. The valve is for turning on or
shutting off gas to the range. Do not
block access to shutoff valve.

Pressure regulator: The gas pressure
regulator supplied with this range must
be used. The inlet pressure to the
regulator should be as follows for proper
Minimum pressure: 5 inches W.C.
Maximum pressure: 14 inches W.C.
L.P . GAS:
Minimum pressure: 10 inches W.C.
Maximum pressure: 14 inches W.C.
Contact local gas supplier if you are not
sure about the inlet pressure.
Line pressure testing above 1/2 psi gauge
(14" WCP) — The range and its individual
manual shutoff valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping
system during any pressure testing of
that system at test pressures greater than
1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
Line pressure testing at 1/2 psi gauge
(14" WCP) or lower — The range must be
isolated from the gas supply piping
system by closing its individual manual
shutoff valve during any pressure testing
of that system at test pressures equal to
or less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
