Instructions / Assembly
This appliance must be properly grounded.
All new constructions, mobile homes, recreational vehicles and installations
where local codes do not allow grounding through neutral, require a 4-conductor UL-listed range cord.
To prevent fire or shock, do not use an extension cord with this appliance.
To prevent shock, remove house fuse or open circuit breaker before beginning
We recommend you have the electrical wiring and hookup of your range connected by a qualified
electrician. After installation, have the electrician show you how to disconnect power from the range.
You must use a single-phase, 120/208 VAC or 120/240 VAC, 60 hertz electrical system. If you con-
nect to aluminum wiring, properly installed connectors approved for use with aluminum wiring must
Effective January 1, 1996, the National Electrical Code requires that new construction (not exist-
ing) utilize a 4-conductor connection to an electric range. When installing an electric range in new
construction, mobile home, recreational vehicle, or an area where local codes prohibit grounding
through the neutral conductor, refer to the section on four-conductor branch circuit connections.
Check with your local utilities for electrical codes which apply in your area. Failure to wire your oven
according to governing codes could result in a hazardous condition. If there are no local codes, your
oven must be wired and fused to meet the National Electrical Code, NFPA No. 70 – latest edition,
available from the National Fire Protection Association.
This appliance must be supplied with the proper voltage and frequency, and connected to an individ-
ual, properly grounded, 40 amp (minimum) branch circuit protected by a circuit breaker or time-delay
Use only a 3-conductor or a 4-conductor UL-listed range cord. These cords may be provided with
ring terminals on wire and a strain relief device.
A range cord rated at 40 amps with 125/250 minimum volt range is required. A 50 amp range cord
is not recommended but if used, it should be marked for use with nominal 1
” diameter connection
openings. Care should be taken to center the cable and strain relief within the knockout hole to keep
the edge from damaging the cable.
The rating plate is located on the oven frame or on the side of the drawer frame.
NOTE: Use of automatic, wireless or wired external switches that shut off power to the appliances,
are not recommended for this product.
POWER CORD AND CONDUIT INSTALLATION
Remove wire cover (on the back of range) by removing screws using a 1/4” nut driver. You
can access the terminal block by either removing a terminal block cover (on some
models) or the wire cover. Do not discard these screws.
For power cord and 1” conduit only, remove
the knockout ring (1
”) located on bracket
directly below the terminal block. To remove
the knockout, use a pair of pliers to bend the
knockout ring away from the bracket and
twist until ring is removed.
For 3/4” conduit installations only, purchase a squeeze connector matching the diameter
of your conduit and assemble it in the hole. Insert the conduit through the squeeze
and tighten. Allow enough slack to easily attach the wires to the terminal block. NOTE: Do not
install the conduit without a squeeze connector. The squeeze connector MUST be installed
before reinstalling the rear terminal block.
For power cord installations only (see the
next step if using conduit), assem-
ble the strain relief in the hole. Insert the
power cord through the strain relief and
tighten. Allow enough slack to easily
attach the cord terminals to the terminal
block. If tabs are present at the end of
the winged strain relief, they can be
removed for better fit.
NOTE: Do not install the power cord
without a strain relief. The strain relief
bracket MUST be installed before rein-
stalling the rear range wiring cover.
Proceed to step 6 or 7.
