Adjust Leveling Legs

1. If range height adjustment is necessary, use a wrench or
pliers to loosen the 4 leveling legs.
This may be done with the range on its back or with the range
supported on 2 legs after the range has been placed back to
a standing position.
NOTE: To place range back up into a standing position, put a
sheet of cardboard or hardboard in front of range. Using 2 or
more people, stand range back up onto the cardboard or
hardboard.
WARNING
Tip Over Hazard
A child or adult can tip the range and be killed.
Connect anti-tip bracket to rear range foot.
Reconnect the anti-tip bracket, if the range is moved.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death
or serious burns to children and adults.
2. Adjust the leveling legs to the correct height. Leveling legs
can be loosened to add up to a maximum of 1" (2.5 cm). A
minimum of
" (5 mm) is needed to engage the anti-tip
bracket.
NOTE: If height adjustment is made when range is standing,
tilt the range back to adjust the front legs, then tilt forward to
adjust the rear legs.
3. When the range is at the correct height, check that there is
adequate clearance under the range for the anti-tip bracket.
Before sliding range into its final position, check that the anti-
tip bracket will slide under the range and onto the rear
leveling leg prior to anti-tip bracket installation.
