Take four
cardboard
corners from the
carton. Stack one
cardboard corner
on top of another. Repeat with other two

grasp the range and gently lay it on its
back on the cardboard corners.

Pull cardboard shipping base
firmly to remove.

Use an adjustable wrench to
loosen the leveling legs 1-1/2 turns.

Place cardboard or hardboard in
front of range. Stand range back up onto
cardboard or hardboard.
6.
Rear vent installation (slide-in
ranges only): Remove the outside screws
from rear trim on range. Use screws to
attach rear vent to range.

correct for this range. (See model/serial
