3. Pull both loops forward at the same time, then pull drawer out
another inch.
4. Holding the drawer by its sides, not its front, gently pull it all
the way out.
To Remove Storage Drawer:
1. Pull drawer straight out to the first stop.
2. Lift up the back of the drawer and pull out.

Verify Anti-Tip Bracket Location

IMPORTANT: On models with a warming drawer, the rear range
foot must be viewed from the front and slightly to one side of the
range.
1. Making sure the anti-tip bracket is installed:
Look for the anti-tip bracket securely attached to floor.
Slide range back so rear range foot is under anti-tip
bracket.
2. If installing the range in a mobile home, you must secure the
range to the floor. Any method of securing the range is
adequate as long as it conforms to the standards in the
"Location Requirements" section.

Level Range

Place rack in oven. Place level on rack and check levelness of the
range, first side to side; then front to back.
A. Loop
If range is not level, pull range forward until rear leveling leg is
removed from the anti-tip bracket.
Use a wrench or pliers to adjust leveling legs up or down until the
range is level. Push range back into position. Check that rear
leveling leg is engaged in the anti-tip bracket.
NOTE: Range must be level for satisfactory baking performance.

Make Gas Connection

WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Use a new CSA International approved gas supply line.
Install a shut-off valve.
Securely tighten all gas connections.
If connected to LP, have a qualified person make sure
gas pressure does not exceed 14" (36 cm) water
column.
Examples of a qualified person include:
licensed heating personnel,
authorized gas company personnel, and
authorized service personnel.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Typical rigid pipe connection
A combination of pipe fittings must be used to connect the range
to the existing gas line. Your connections may be different,
according to the supply line type, size and location.
1. Apply pipe-joint compound made for use with LP gas to all
pipe thread connections.
2. Using a pipe wrench to tighten, connect the gas supply to the
range.
