Make Gas Connection

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.
This range is factory-set for use with Natural gas. To use this
range with LP gas, see the "Gas Conversions" section before
connecting this range to the gas supply. Gas conversions from
Natural gas to LP gas or from LP gas to Natural gas must be
done by a qualified installer.
Typical Flexible Connection
1. Apply pipe-joint compound made for use with LP gas to
the smaller thread ends of the flexible connector adapters.
See B and G in the following illustration.
2. Attach one adapter to the gas pressure regulator and
the other adapter to the gas shut-off valve. Tighten both
adapters, being certain not to move or turn the gas pressure
3. Use a
" (2.4 cm) combination wrench and an adjustable
wrench to attach the flexible connector to the adapters.
IMPORTANT: All connections must be wrench-tightened.
Do not make connections to the gas regulator too tight.
Making the connections too tight may crack the regulator
and cause a gas leak. Do not allow the regulator to turn
when tightening fittings.
A. ½" (1.3 cm) or ¾" (1.9 cm)
gas pipe
B. Use pipe-joint compound.
C. Adapter
D. Manual gas shut-off valve

F. Adapter (must have ½"
[1.3 cm] male pipe thread)

Complete Connection
1. Open the manual shut-off valve in the gas supply line.
The valve is open when the handle is parallel to the gas pipe.
A. Closed valve
B. Open valve
2. Test all connections by brushing on an approved
noncorrosive leak-detection solution. If bubbles appear,
a leak is indicated. Correct any leak found.

Level Range

1. Place level on the oven bottom, as indicated in one of
the two figures below, depending on the size of the level.
Check with the level side to side and front to back.
2. If range is not level, use a wrench or pliers to adjust leveling
legs up or down until the range is level.
NOTE: Range must be level for satisfactory baking
performance and best cleaning results using AquaLift
Self-Clean Technology.
