INSTALL RANGETOP
STEP 2
• Slide the rangetop into the opening. Make sure the
rangetop is evenly seated and supported.
• A hold-down strap with screws is provided to
secure the rangetop to the rear or side cabinet
walls.
• Remove the hold-down strap from the back of the
rangetop. Attach one end of the strap to the back
of the rangetop.
• Secure the other end of the strap as high as
possible to the cabinet back wall or adjacent
cabinet. Keep the strap as short as possible for
better security.
CONNECT RANGETOP TO GAS
STEP 3
WARNING
Do not use a flame to check for gas leaks.
A manual shut-off valve must be installed where
it will be accessible.
Assure that gas is turned off at the shut-off
valve.
• Install the supplied pressure regulator onto the end
of the gas inlet.
• You can install a 90° elbow (not provided) onto
the gas inlet and route the gas connections to
avoid interference with drawers or other cabinetry
features. However, it is not recommended because it
will result in a drop in gas pressure.
• Make sure the regulator is installed in the right
direction. See arrow on the underside of the
regulator.
NOTE: Instead of using solid piping to connect to
pressure regulator, an approved flexible metal
appliance connector may be used between the pipe
stub and the shut-off valve to the pressure regulator,
if local codes permit.
• Turn on gas and check for leaks:
– Use a liquid leak detector at all joints and
connections in the system.
Installation
Note: Pipe stub extends
about 1" below burner
box.
IMPORTANT: Disconnect the rangetop and the
individual shut-off valve from the gas supply piping
system during any pressure testing of that system
at test pressures greater than 1/2 psig. Isolate the
rangetop from the gas supply piping system by
closing the individual manual shut-off valve to the
rangetop during any pressure testing of the gas
supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less
than 1/2 psig.
