WARNING:
Fire and Explosion Hazard:
If the information in the manual is not followed exactly, a fire or explosion may result causing
property damage, personal injury, or death.
If you smell gas:
– Open windows
– Don't touch electrical switches.
– Extinguish any open flame.
– Immediately call your gas supplier.
Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids
in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
Installation and service must be performed by a qualified installer, service agency or the gas
supplier.
Remove all packing material and literature from oven before connecting gas and electrical
supply to the range.
If you did not receive an anti-tip
bracket with your purchase, call
1.800.626.8774 to receive one
at no cost. (In Canada, call

WARNING:
Electrical Shock Hazard:
This appliance must be properly grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes,
in accordance with the National Electrical Code (ANSI/NFPA 70, latest edition). In Canada, electrical
grounding must be in accordance with the current CSA C22.1 Canadian Electrical Code Part 1 and/or local
codes. See the Electrical Requirements section.
PRESSURE TEST INFORMATION
The maximum allowable supply pressure for the regulator is 14" W.C. The minimum supply
pressure needed to check the regulator setting is 7" W.C. for natural gas and 10" W.C. for LP
gas.
WARNING:
The range and its individual shut-o valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of the gas
supply system at test pressures of more than 1/2 psig (pounds per square inch gauge).
The range must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual
shut-o valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply system at test pressures
equal to or greater than 1/2 psig. NOTE: 1/2 psig = 13.855" w.c.

REMOVE PACKAGING MATERIALS
Failure to remove packaging materials could result in
damage to the appliance. Remove all packing parts from
oven, racks and drawer. Also, remove protective film and
labels on the door and cooktop.
Move Range Indoors in Front of Cabinet Opening:
Do not use hand trucks when moving the unpacked range,
as damage to the cooktop may occur.
Protect the Kitchen Floor:
Flatten and place a piece of the shipping carton in front
of the installation location to protect the flooring.
2
PREPARE THE OPENING (FOR INDOOR USE ONLY)
If the countertop area is not flat, excess tension may be applied to the cooktop causing damage and voiding
the warranty. Make sure the wall covering, countertop, flooring and cabinets around the range can withstand
the heat (up to 200°F [93.3°C]) generated by the range.
A. Allow 30" (76.2 cm) minimum clearance between burners and bottom of unprotected wood or metal
cabinet, or allow a 24" (61 cm) minimum when bottom of wood or metal cabinet is protected by no less
than 1/4" (6.4 mm) thick flame-retardant millboard covered with no less than No. 28 MSG sheet metal
(.015" [.38 mm] thick), .015" (.38 mm) thick stainless steel, .025" (0.64 mm) aluminum or .020"
(0.5 mm) copper.
B. Side wall clearance requirement:
9½" (24.1 cm) clearance for models PCGS910 and PC2S910
To reduce the risk of burns or fire when reaching over burners, cabinet storage space above the cooktop
should be avoided. If cabinet storage space is to be provided above the cooktop, the risk can be reduced
by installing a range hood that projects at least 5" (12.7 cm) beyond the front of the cabinets. Cabinets
installed above the cooktop must be no deeper than 13" (33 cm).
Seal any openings in the wall behind the range and the floor under the range.

STORAGE DRAWER REMOVAL
A. Pull drawer out until it stops.
B. Lift front of drawer until the stops clear the guide.
C. Pull forward and remove the drawer.
DOOR REMOVAL (optional)
Door removal is not a requirement for installation of the product but is an added convenience.
To remove the door:
A. Open the oven door as far as it will go.
B. Push both hinge locks down toward the door frame to the
unlocked position. This may require a flat-blade screwdriver.
DO NOT LIFT THE DOOR BY THE HANDLE!
C. Place hands on both sides of the door, and close the oven door
to the removal position. (Approximately 1"–2" [2.5 cm–5.1 cm]
from the closed position.)
D. Lift door up and out until the hinge arms clear the slots.
NOTE: The oven door is very heavy. Be sure you have a firm
grip before lifting the oven door off the hinges. Use caution once
the door is removed. Do not lay the door on its handle. This
could cause dents or scratches.

obligation of the customer to have it replaced with a properly grounded three-prong wall
receptacle.
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third prong (ground) from the
power cord.
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, we strongly recommend against
the use of an extension cord. However, if you still elect to use an extension cord, it is absolutely
)
necessary that it is a UL-listed 3-wire grounding-type appliance extension cord, and that the
current-carrying rating of the cord in amperes is equivalent to, or greater than, the branch
circuit rating.
Installation of this product in a mobile home must conform with the Manufactured Home
Construction and Safety Standard, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280. If this standard does not apply,
you must follow the standard for the Manufactured Home Installations, ANSI A225.1 and

(10.2 cm). If it does not, the bracket must be reinstalled. If the range is pulled from the wall for any
reason, always repeat this procedure to verify the range is properly secured by the anti-tip bracket.
Never completely remove the leveling legs or the range will not be secured to the anti-tip device
properly.

SLIDE RANGE INTO OPENING
A. Position the range in front of the cabinet opening. Make sure that the cooktop
that overhangs the countertop clears the countertop. If necessary, raise the unit
by lowering the leveling legs.
B. Push while lifting the range into the opening until the range is within 2" (5.1 cm)
of engaging the anti-tip bracket. Remove the protective channel from the side
of glass (if provided).
C. Using the adjustable pliers or wrench, carefully screw in the back leveling legs until the cooktop
overhang touches the countertop. Then carefully screw in the front two leveling legs until the
cooktop overhang touches the countertop.
D. Carefully push the range into the opening until the unit is
fully seated into the cabinet. The back cooktop overhang
should cover the cutout opening. Plug the range cord
into the receptacle. Locate the flexible gas line in the
back of the range in a manner that it will not touch or
be moved by the drawer.

To reduce the risk of tipping the range, the range must
be secured by a properly installed anti-tip bracket. See
installation instructions shipped with the bracket for
complete details before attempting to install.
To check if the bracket is installed and engaged
properly, remove the storage drawer or kick panel and
look underneath the range to see that the leveling leg
is engaged in the bracket. On models without a storage
drawer or kick panel, carefully tip the range forward.
The bracket should stop the range within 4 inches
