Inout ratinas shown on the
serial/rating
plate are for elevations
up to
2,000 feet. For elevations
above
2,OXl feet,
ratings are reduced
at a rate of 4% for
each

sea level.
C
n
The cooktop
is equipped
for use
with NATURAL gas. It is design-certified
by
the American
Gas Association
for NATURAL
and LJ? gases with appropriate
conversion.
The serial/rating
plate, located
on the
underside
of the burner
box, has
information
on the type of gas that can be
used. If this information
does not agree with
the type of gas available,
check
with the
local gas supplier, See Panel E for L.Pgas
conversion
instructions.
Panel B
D
n
Provide a gas supply line of 3/4"
rigid pipe to the cooktop
location.
A
smaller size pipe on long runs may result in
insufficient
gas supply. Pipe-joint
compounds,
suitable
for use with L.l? gas,
must be used. With L-l? gas, piping
or tubing
size can be l/2" minimum.
L.P gas suppliers
usually determine
the size and materials
used on the system.
E
n
If local codes permit, a new A.G.A.
design-certified,
4-5 foot long, l/2" or 3/4"
I.D., flexible
metal appliance
connector
is
recommended
for connecting
this cooktop
to the gas supply line. Do Not kink or
damage
the flexible
connector
when
moving
the cooktop.

I
t
n
The supply line shall be equipped
with
an approved
shutoff valve. This valve should
be located
in the same room as the
cooktop
and should be in a location
that
allows ease of opening
and closing. Do Not
block access to the shutoff valve.
G
n
If rigid pipe is used as a gas
supply line, a combination
of pipe
fittings must be used to obtain
an in-line
connection
to the cooktop.
All strains must
be removed
from the supply and fuel lines
so cook-top
will be level and in line.
H
n
The regulator
must be checked
at a
minimum
1 -inch water column
above
the
set pressure. The inlet pressure to the
regulator
should be as follows for operation:
NATURAL GAS:
Mtnimum
pressure
4 inches
W.C.
Maximum
pressure
14 inches
W.C.
L.t? GAS:
Mlnimum
pressure
10 inches
W.C.
Maximum
pressure
14 inches
W.C.
I
n
Line pressure testing:
Testing above
l/2 psi (14 inches W.C.)
(gauge)
The cooktop
and its individual
shutoff valve
must be disconnected
from the gas supply
piping
system during
any pressure testing of
that system at test pressures greater
than
l/2 psig (3.5kPa).
Testing at l/2 psi (14 inches W.C.) (gauge)
or lower
The cooktop
must be isolated
from the gas
supply piping
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 l/2 psig
(3.5kPa).

3-prong
outlet.
Do not remove ground
prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Failure to follow
these instructions
can
result in death, fire, or electrical
shock.
If codes
permit and a separate

wire is used, it is recommended
that a
qualified
electrician
determine
that the
grounding
path is adequate.
Check
with a qualified
electrician
if you
are not sure whether
the cooktop
is
properly
grounded.
Do Not ground
to a gas pipe.
A 120-volt, 60-Hz, AC-only,
15-ampere,
fused
electrical
supply
is required.
A time-delay
fuse or circuit
breaker
is recommended.
It is
recommended
that a separate
circuit
serving only this appliance
be provided.
Electronic
ignition
systems operate
within
wide voltage
limits, but proper
grounding
and polarity
are necessary.
In addition
to
checking
that the outlet
provides
12Gvolt
power
and is correctly
grounded,
the outlet
must be checked
by a qualified
electrician
to see if it is wired with correct
polarity.
A
wiring diagram

3-prong,
ground-type
outlet,
grounded
in accordance
with the National
Electrical
Code ANSVNFPA 70- latest
edition*
and local codes
and ordinances.
If a mating

to have a properly
grounded,
3-prong
outlet
installed
by a qualified
electrician.
