Natural Gas:
This range is design-certified by CSA International for use with
Natural gas or, after proper conversion, for use with LP gas.
This range is factory set for use with Natural gas. The model/
serial rating plate located on the right vertical surface of the
oven door frame has information on the types of gas that can
be used. If the types of gas listed do not include the type of
gas available, check with the local gas supplier.

supplied with the range.

Gas Supply Requirements

Gas Supply Line
Provide a gas supply line of ¾" (1.9 cm) rigid pipe to the
range location. A smaller size pipe on longer runs may result
in insufficient gas supply. Pipe-joint compounds that resist
the action of LP gas must be used. Do not use TEFLON
tape. With LP gas, piping or tubing size can be ½" (1.3 cm)
minimum. Usually, LP gas suppliers determine the size and
materials used in the system.
Flexible metal appliance connector:
Rigid pipe connection:
The rigid pipe connection requires a combination of pipe
fittings to obtain an in-line connection to the range. The rigid
pipe must be level with the range connection. All strains must
be removed from the supply and fuel lines so range will be
level and in line.
Must include a manual shutoff valve:
The supply line must be equipped with a manual shutoff
valve. This valve should be located in the same room but
external to the range. It should be in a location that allows
ease of opening and closing. Do not block access to shutoff
valve. The valve is for turning on or shutting off gas to the
