Normal Installation Steps

Anti-Tip Bracket Installation Instructions important Safety Warning To reduce the risk of tipping of the range. the range must be secured to the floor by properly installed anti-tip bracket and screws packed with the range. Failure to install the anti-tip bracket will allow the range to tip over if excessive weight is placed on an open door or if a child climbs upon it. Serious injury might result from spilled hot liquids or from the range itself.


Locate the Bracket Using the Template (Bracket may be located on either the left or right side of the range. Use the information below to locate the bracket if template is not available). Mark the floor or wall where left or right side of the range will be located.

If rear of range is against the wall or no further than 1-1/4" from wall when installed. you may use the wall or floor mount method.

If molding is installed and does not allowthe bracket to fitflush against the wall. remove molding or mount bracket to the floor. For wall mount. locate the bracket by placing the back edge of the template against the rear wall and the side edge of template on the mark made referencing the side of the range. Place bracket on top of template and mark location of the screw holes in wall. If rear of range is further than 1-1/4" from the wall when installed. attach bracket to the floor. For floor mount. locate the bracket by placing back edge of the template where the rear of the range will be located.

Mark the location of the screw holes. shown in template.



Drill Pilot Holes and Fasten Bracket Drill a 1!8" pilot hole where screws are to be located.

If bracket is to be mounted to the wall. drill pilot hole at an approximate downward angle. If bracket is to be mounted to masonry or ceramic floors. drill a 5/32" pilot hole 1-3/4" deep. The screws provided may be used inwood or concrete material.

Operation of Oven Burners and Oven Adjustments

Electric Ignition Burners Operation of electric igniters should be checked after range and supply line connectors have been carefully checked for leaks and range has been connected to electric power.

The oven burner is equipped with an electric control system as well as an electric oven burner igniter. Ifyour model is equipped with awaist-high broil burner. it will also have an electric burner igniter. These control systems require no adjustment.

When the oven is set to operate. current will flow to the igniter. Itwill "glow" similar to a light bulb. When the igniter has reached a temperature sufficient to ignite gas. the electrically controlled oven valve will open and flame will appear at the oven burner.

There is a time lapse from 30 to 60 seconds after the thermostat is turned ON before the flame appears at the oven burner. When the oven reaches the dial setting. the glowing igniter will go off. The burner flame will go "out" in 20 to 30 seconds after the igniter goes "OFF." To maintain any given oven temperature. this cycle will continue as long as the dial (or display) is set to operate.

After removing all packing materials and literature from the oven: a) Set oven to BAKE at 300°F. See Use & Care Guide for operating instructions.

b) Within 60 seconds the oven burner should ignite. Check for proper flame. and allow the burner tocycleonce.

Reset controls to off.

c) Ifyour model is equipped with awaist-high broiler. setoven to BROIL. See Use & Care Guide for operating instructions.

d) Within 60 seconds the broil burner should ignite. Check for proper flame. Reset controls to off.
