WARNING
• The information in this manual should be followed exactly.
- A fire or electrical shock may result causing property damage, perasonal injury or death.
• DO NOT step or sit on oven door. Install the Anti-Tip Bracket supplied with the range.
- The range could be tipped and injury might result from spilled hot liquid, food, or the range itself.
- If the range is pulled away from the wall for cleaning, service, or any other reason, ensure that the Anti-Tip Device is properly
reengaged when the range is pushed back against the wall.
• New branch-circuit installations (1996 NEC) for mobile homes, recreational vehicles, and
installations where local codes do not allow grounding through the neutral wire require a 4-
conductor UL listed range cord or 4 wire conduit connection.
• The middle (neutral or ground) wire of a 3 wire power cord or a 3 wire conduit has to be connected
to the middle post of the main terminal block. The remaining two wires of the power cord or
conduit have to be connected to the outside posts of the main terminal connection block.
- Failure to do so can result in electrical shock, severe personal injury or death.
• Only a 4-conductor power-supply cord kit rated 120/240 volts, 50 amperes and marked for use with
ranges with closed-loop connectors or open-end spade lugs with upturned ends shall be used.
The middle (neutral) wire of the power cord or 4-wire conduit has to be connected to the middle
post of the main terminal block. The other two wires of the power cord or conduit have to be
connected to the outside posts of the main terminal connection block. The 4th ground wire must
be connected to the frame of the range with the ground screw.
- Failure to do so can result in electrical shock, severe personal injury or death.
CAUTION
• Make sure that the wall covering, countertop and cabinets around the range can withstand
the heat (up to 194°F) generated by the range.
- Discoloration, delamination or melting may occur.
- This range has been designed to comply with the maximum allowable wood cabinet temperatures of 194°F.
• Cabinet storage space located above the surface units should be avoided.
• Install a range hood that projects horizontally a minimum of 5 inches beyond the bottom of
the cabinets If cabinet storage is to be provided.
- The risk of burns or fire by reaching over the heated surface elements can be reduced.
