Gas Supply Requirements - Maytag CWG3100AAS Installation Instructions Manual

24" (61.0 cm) gas single and double built-in oven
Hide thumbs


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 oven 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 in the upper control
compartment in a clear plastic bag.

Gas Supply Requirements

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
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
IMPORTANT: Leak testing of the oven must be conducted
according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Type of Gas
Natural gas:
This oven is factory set for use with Natural gas. See "Gas
Conversions" section. The model/serial rating plate located
behind the broiler drawer on the right-hand side oven front
frame 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 oven
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
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.
Flexible metal appliance connector:
If local codes permit, a new CSA design-certified, 4 to 5 ft
(122 to 152.4 cm) long, ½" (1.3 cm) or ¾" (1.9 cm) I.D.,
flexible metal appliance connector may be used for
connecting oven 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 oven.
Rigid pipe connection:
The rigid pipe connection requires a combination of pipe
fittings to obtain an in-line connection to the oven. The rigid
pipe must be level with the oven connection. All strains must
be removed from the supply and fuel lines so oven 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 oven opening, such as an adjacent cabinet. 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 oven.
