Electrical Requirements

WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
IMPORTANT: The range must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes and ordinances, or in the absence
of local codes, with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70
or Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.
This range is equipped with an electronic ignition system that will
not operate if plugged into an outlet that is not properly polarized.
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrical installer determine that
the ground path is adequate.
A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:
National Fire Protection Association
One Batterymarch Park
Quincy, MA 02269
CSA International
8501 East Pleasant Valley Road
Cleveland, OH 44131-5575
A 120 volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15-amp fused, electrical circuit is
required. A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is also
recommended. It is recommended that a separate circuit
serving only this range be provided.
Electronic ignition systems operate within wide voltage limits,
but proper grounding and polarity are necessary. Check that
the outlet provides 120-volt power and is correctly grounded.
The wiring diagram is located on the underside of the storage
drawer or below the warming drawer in a clear plastic bag.
NOTE: The metal chassis of the range must be grounded in
order for the control panel to work. If the metal chassis of the
range is not grounded, no keypads will operate. Check with a
qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the
metal chassis of the range is grounded.

Gas Supply Requirements

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.
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
IMPORTANT: This installation must conform with all local codes
and ordinances. In the absence of local codes, installation must
conform with American National Standard, National Fuel Gas
Code ANSI Z223.1 - latest edition or CAN/CGA B149 - latest
edition.
IMPORTANT: Leak testing of the range must be conducted
according to the manufacturers instructions.
Type of Gas
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. See "Gas
Conversions" section. The model/serial rating plate located
on the right side oven door trim 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.
LP gas conversion:
Conversion must be done by a qualified service technician.
No attempt shall be made to convert the appliance from the gas
specified on the model/serial rating plate for use with a different
gas without consulting the serving gas supplier. See "Gas
Conversions" section.
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.
