This range must be connected to a
grounded metal, permanent wiring
A four-wire or three-wire, single
phase, 240-volt, 60-Hz, AC-only electrical
supply is required on a separate, 30-
ampere circuit, fused on both sides of the

94, Canadian Electrical Code, Part 1 and
C22.2 No. 0-M91 - latest edition** and all
local codes and ordinances.
The range should be connected
directly to the fused disconnect or circuit
breaker box through flexible, armored or
non-metallic sheathed, copper cable. The
flexible, armored cable extending from the
fuse box or circuit breaker box should be
connected directly to the junction box.
Locate the junction box to allow
as much slack as possible between the
junction box and the range so that the
range can be moved if servicing is ever
necessary. Do not cut the conduit.
A U.L.- or CSA-listed conduit
connector must be provided at each end
of the power supply cable (at the cooktop
and at the junction box).
Connection at connection block must
be copper wire only.
