Gas supply
requirements
WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Use a new AGA or CSA approved
gas supply line.
Install a shutoff valve.
Securely tighten all gas
connections.
If connected to LP, have a
qualified person make sure gas
pressure does not exceed 14"
(35.6 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: Range cooktop must be
connected to a regulated gas supply.
A.
This installation must conform
with local codes and ordinances. In the
absence of local codes, installations must
conform with American National
Standard, National Fuel Gas Code
ANSI Z223.1 — latest edition* or
CAN/CGA-B149 — latest edition*
installation codes.
B.
Input ratings shown on the
model/serial rating plate are for elevations
up to 2,000 feet (610 m). For elevations
above 2,000 feet (610 m), ratings are
reduced at a rate of 4% for each 1,000
feet (305 m) above sea level. (Not
applicable for Canada.)

C.
The range is equipped for use with
NATURAL gas. It is design-certified by
International Approval Services (I.A.S.) for
NATURAL and L.P. gases with appropriate
conversion. The model/serial rating plate,
located on the surface below the control
panel, has information on the type of gas
that can be used. If this information does
not agree with the type of gas available,
check with the local gas supplier.
L.P. Gas:
No attempt shall be made to convert the
cooktop from the gas specified on the
model/serial rating plate for use with a
different gas without consulting the
serving gas supplier. Conversion must be
done by a qualified service technician. To
convert to L.P. gas, use L.P. gas
conversion kit part no. 8301439. The parts
for this kit are in the literature package
supplied with range.
D.
Provide a gas supply line of 3/4"
(1.9 cm) rigid pipe to the range location. A
smaller size pipe on long runs may result
in insufficient gas supply. Pipe-joint
compounds, appropriate for use with L.P.
gas, must be used. With L.P. gas, piping or
tubing size can be 1/2" (1.3 cm) minimum.
L.P. gas suppliers usually determine the
size and materials used on the system.
E.
If local codes permit, a new AGA
or CSA design-certified, 4-5 foot (122-
152.4 cm) long, 5/8" (1.6 cm) I.D., flexible
metal appliance connector is
recommended for connecting this range
to the gas supply line. Do not kink or
damage the flexible tubing when moving
the range. A 1/2" (1.3 cm) male pipe
thread is needed for connection to
pressure regulator female pipe threads.

F.
The supply line shall be equipped
with an approved shutoff valve. This valve
should be located in the same room, but
external to the range, and should be in a
location that allows ease of opening and
closing. Do not block access to the
shutoff valve.
G.
If rigid pipe
is used as a gas
supply line, a combination of pipe
fittings must be used to obtain an in-line
connection to the range. All strains must
be removed from the supply and fuel lines
so range will be level and in line.
H.
The regulator must be checked at a
minimum 1-inch (25.4 mm) water column
above the set pressure. The inlet pressure to
the regulator should be as follows for
operation and checking the regulator setting:
NATURAL GAS:
Manifold pressure –
5 inches (12.7 cm) W.C.
Maximum pressure –
14 inches (35.6 cm) W.C.
L.P. GAS:
Manifold pressure –
10 inches (25.4 cm) W.C.
Maximum pressure –
14 inches (35.6 cm) W.C.
I.
Line pressure testing:
Testing above 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa) (gauge):
The range and its individual shutoff valve
must be disconnected from the gas
supply piping system during any pressure
testing of that system at test pressures
greater than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
Testing at 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa) (gauge)
or lower: The range 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 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
Copies of the standards listed may be
to range
obtained from:
* CSA International
8501 East Pleasant Valley Road
Cleveland, Ohio 44131-5575
