Countertop Preparation - KitchenAid 2 CM) Installation Instructions Manual

30" (76.2 cm) freestanding and slide-in gas ranges
Hide thumbs


Flexible metal appliance connector:
If local codes permit, a new CSA design-certified,
4 - 5 ft (122 - 152.4 cm) long, ½" (1.3 cm) or
¾" (1.9 cm) I.D., flexible metal appliance connector may
be used for connecting range to the gas supply line.
A ½" (1.3 cm) male pipe thread is needed for connection
to the female pipe threads of the inlet to the appliance
pressure regulator.
Do not kink or damage the flexible metal tubing when
moving the range.
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 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
A. Gas supply line
B. Shutoff valve "open" position
C. To range
Gas Pressure Regulator
The gas pressure regulator supplied with this range must be
used. The inlet pressure to the regulator should be as follows for
proper operation:
Natural gas:
Minimum pressure: 5" WCP
Maximum pressure: 14" WCP
LP gas:
Minimum pressure: 11" WCP
Maximum pressure: 14" WCP
Contact local gas supplier if you are not sure about the inlet
Burner Input Requirements
Input ratings shown on the model/serial rating plate are for
elevations up to 2,000 ft (609.6 m).
For elevations above 2,000 ft (609.6 m), ratings are reduced at a
rate of 4% for each 1,000 ft (304.8 m) above sea level (not
applicable for Canada).
Gas Supply Pressure Testing
Line pressure testing above ½ psi gauge (14" WCP)
The appliance and its individual shutoff valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of
½ psi (3.5 kPa).
Line pressure testing at ½ psi gauge (14" WCP) or lower
The appliance 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 ½ psi (3.5 kPa).

Countertop Preparation

(for Slide-in Ranges Only)
The cooktop sides of the slide-in range fit over the cutout edge of
your countertop.
If you have a square finish (flat) countertop and the opening width
is 30" (76.2 cm), no countertop preparation is required.
Formed front-edged countertops must have molded edge
shaved flat
" (1.0 cm) from each front corner of opening.
Tile countertops may need trim cut back
front corner and/or rounded edge flattened.
(76.2 cm)
If countertop opening width is greater than 30" (76.2 cm), adjust
" (1.0 cm) dimension.
Countertop must be level. Place level on countertop, first side to
side, then front to back. If countertop is not level, range will not
be level. Range must be level for satisfactory baking conditions.
