READ ALL IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS AND ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE. IF YOU SMELL GAS: • Open windows • Don’t touch electrical switches • Extinguish any open flame • Immediately call your gas supplier FOR YOUR SAFETY: • Keep appliance area clear and free from combustible materials gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids. WARNINGS Destroy the carton and plastic bags after the range is unpacked. Children should not use packaging material for play.
Notice: Never keep pet birds in the kitchen. Birds have a very sensitive respiratory system. Fumes released from cooking oil, fat, margarine or overheated non-stick cookware may be harmful or fatal to birds. PROPER INSTALLATION: Be sure a qualified technician in accordance with the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA54 properly installs your appliance. Install only per installation instructions provided in the literature package for this range.
USER SERVICING: Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in this owner’s guide. Only a qualified technician should do all other servicing. This will reduce the risk of personal injury and damage to the range. Storage in or on appliance: Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven, near surface burners or in the broiler section. This includes paper, plastic and cloth items, such as cookbooks, plastic ware and towels, as well as flammable liquids.
Do not use water or flour on grease fires. Smother the fire with a pan lid, baking soda or use a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher. Operation of the Surface Burners. When the burners are operated for the first time, a small amount of smoke may be generated due to tape residue or manufacturing lubrication, this is not dangerous. Operate the burners for about five minutes to rid the burners of this material before cooking. Use only dry potholders.
Cookware handles should be turned inward and not extend over adjacent surface burners. To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the cookware, the handle of a cookware should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface burners. Never leave the surface burners unattended. Boilovers may cause smoking, greasy spill-overs may catch fire or a pan which has boiled dry may melt.
Flexible Connectors: If the gas range/oven is connected to a gas supply with a metal flexible connector, move the range/oven with CAUTION for service or cleaning. Flexible connectors are not intended for repeated bending. Do not allow cleaners to make contact with flexible connectors. The connector and its fittings are designed for use only on the original installation and are not to be reused for another appliance or at another location. Connectors must comply with ANSI Z21.24.
CARBON MONOXIDE WARNING: Carbon Monoxide is a possible danger when using any gas powered appliance. All gas appliances MUST be installed by a licensed professional who is familiar with the Carbon Monoxide levels appropriate for each appliance. The American Gas Association publishes CO emissions for appliances and heating equipment through the ANSI Std. Z21.1 The EPA reports that a maximum CO (Carbon Monoxide) level of 9 PPM over a 24 hour period is the residential interior ambient level standard.
ENERGY-SAVING IDEAS Surface Cooking Use lids when surface cooking. A lid traps steam and uses it to speed up the cooking process. If you have a pressure cooker or vegetable steamer, use it. You’ll waste fewer vitamins, save time and cut energy costs. Use medium-weight, flat bottomed pans that match the flame size. Choose pans made of metals that conduct heat well. When cooking on a surface burner, use as little water as possible to reduce cooking time.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS Be sure appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician. It is the responsibility of the technician to make certain that your range is properly installed. Situations caused by improper installation are not covered under the warranty. Any expenses incurred due to such situations will not be paid by the manufacturer of the appliance. A child or adult can tip the range and be killed. Install the anti-tip device to the structure and/or the range.
HOW TO INSTALL THE BACKSPLASH 1. Align the backsplash to the rear part of the cooktop as shown in the diagram. 2. Secure the backsplash to the cooktop from the back using the 2 Philips head screws provided as shown in the diagram. 3. Secure the backsplash from the bottom using the Philips head screws provided as shown in the diagram.
GAS CONNECTIONS (All Units) NOTICE TO MASSACHUSETTS APPLIANCE DEALERS: Be sure this document is included in all gas range appliances sold to consumers in the State of Massachusetts. NOTICE: Massachusetts law requires the following: • Appliances must be installed by a licensed plumber or gas fitter. • Appliances must be connected with a three (3) foot (36” maximum length) flexible gas connector and • A “T” handle type manual gas valve in the gas supply line to the appliance.
GAS CONNECTIONS (continued) The appliance and its individual shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig. The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shut-off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig.
GAS CONNECTIONS (All Units) When using this on LPG gas, conversion must be made by a qualified LPG installer before attempting to operate the range on that gas. For correct operation, the pressure of natural gas supplied to the regulator should be between 4” and 5” of water column. For LP gas, the pressure supplied must be between 10” and 12” of water column.
WALL CLEARANCES All units must be installed in accordance to minimum rear and side wall clearance and clearances extended vertically above cooking top which are stated on the serial plate located at the back of the range. ANY OPENINGS IN THE WALL BEHIND THE UNIT AND IN THE FLOOR UNDER THE UNIT MUST BE SEALED. Note. Due to potential hazards it is recommended that storage cabinets NOT be installed above the cooking surface.
WALL CLEARANCES (continued) 21
GAS RANGE CONVERSION To convert application and/or adjust from NG to LPG The range is set for use with Natural Gas (NG). The factory setting is indicated on the serial plate. When set for Natural Gas operation, the pressure regulator will regulate the gas to 5 inches water column pressure. When set for Liquid Propane Gas (LPG) operation, the pressure regulator will regulate the pressure to 10 inches water column.

GAS RANGE CONVERSION CHECKING FOR MANIFOLD GAS PRESSURE To check the manifold gas pressure, remove the burner cap and connect a manometer (water gauge) or other pressure test device to the burner orifice. Use a rubber hose with inside diameter of approximately ¼” hold the end of the hose tight over the orifice. Turn the gas valve on. For a more accurate pressure check, have at least two (2) other top burners burning.
ADJUSTING THE TOP BURNER AND OVEN FLAME Keep appliance area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and liquids. Do not obstruct the flow of air that is necessary for combustion and ventilation. Top Burner Valves The top burners have orifices that are dedicated to the type of fuel to be used. These orifices are not adjustable. They must be changed completely to convert from one gas to the other. DO NOT DISCARD THE UNUSED ORIFICES.
ADJUSTING THE TOP BURNER AND OVEN FLAME (continued) Cooktop Burner Operation The top burner flame size should be adjusted so that is does not extend beyond the edge of the cookware. As a matter of safety, it’s recommended that you comply with these instructions. A high flame on a surface burner is both inefficient and unsafe. The flame should always be adjusted so that it is no larger than the bottom of the pan.
ADJUSTING THE TOP BURNER AND OVEN FLAME (continued) ADJUSTING THE OVEN BURNER FLAME 1) Light the burner by turning the thermostat to the 500ºF position, 2) Remove the knob by pulling straight out. 3) Remove the two (2) Philips head screws that secure the bezel to the control panel. 4) Carefully lift the bezel away from the control panel to allow access to the access hole below the valve stem. (see illustration). 5) Insert the flat head screwdriver (2.
OPERATION OF RANGE Lighting the Top Burners 1. To obtain a flame more easily, light the burner before placing a cooking utensil on the burner grate. 2. Decide which burner you’re igniting first using the screened diagram below the burner knob. The black dot indicates the position of the burner you’re igniting. 3.To light a burner, press the burner knob in and turn counter clockwise to high flame/ignition position.
OPERATION OF RANGE (continued) HOW TO USE THE GAS OVEN General features The gas oven is provided with two burners: The Oven burner, mounted on the lower part of the oven The Broil burner, mounted on the upper part of the oven Using the oven for the first time It is advised to follow these instructions: - Insert shelves and broiler grid and tray - Turn the oven on to the maximum temperature position (500˚F) to eliminate possible traces of grease from the oven burner.
OPERATION OF RANGE (continued) OVEN THERMOSTAT - The numbers printed on the control panel indicate the increasing oven temperature value (°F). - To regulate the temperature, set the chosen number onto the control knob indicator. - The position BROIL serves only to turn on the broil burner. NOTE: When the range will not be used for long periods of time, set the gas knobs to their OFF positions and also close the gas shut-off valve placed on the main gas supply line.
OPERATION OF RANGE (continued) 3. Press the knob inward and hold to activate the electronic ignition. Note that you will hear a “clicking” noise. Hold the knob pressed inward until the oven burner is lit. Once the oven burner is lit, release the knob. A In case of power outage, you can manually light the burner by pressing the knob inward and immediately approach a lighted match to the opening “A” (see the diagram above). Never continue this operation for more than 15 seconds.
OPERATION OF RANGE (continued) CONVECTION MODE Heat is transferred from the bake burners in the bottom of the oven cavity to the oven cavity itself. The convection fan in the rear of the oven then circulates the hot air, providing even heat distribution throughout the oven. Convection cooking generally provides a more even temperature with faster baking times than the standard oven baking setting. This mode is controlled by a button on the right hand side of the control panel.
OPERATION OF RANGE (continued) CONVECTION ROASTING When convection roasting, it is important that you use a broiler pan for best convection roasting results. A broil/roast pan (with a rack) elevates the roast to allow the hot air to circulate around the meat, sealing in juices for a moist and tender roast with a richly browned exterior (similar to a rotisserie effect.) The pan is also used to catch any drippings from the roast, keeping the oven clean and reducing the chance of smoking or flare-ups.
ALIGNMENTS AND ADJUSTMENTS 4. When using the range for the ﬁrst time or after long period of non-usage, keep pressing the knob inward for approximately 10 – 15 seconds after the burner has lit to ensure the gas valve has been accurately primed. 5. Slowly close the oven door. If the flame extinguishes for any reason, the safety valve will automatically shut off the gas supply to the burner.
CLEANING THE RANGE GENERAL RECOMMENDATION ! WA RNING ! Electrical Shock Hazard • Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet. Insure proper ground exists before using the range. • Do not remove ground prong. • Do not use an adapter or extension cord. • Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock. Important: Before any operation of cleaning and maintenance disconnect the appliance from the electrical supply.
CLEANING THE RANGE (continued) Using Commercial Oven Cleaners Commercial oven cleaners may be used on porcelain lined ovens; however, many cleaners are very strong, and it’s essential to follow instructions carefully. Be sure to wear rubber gloves to protect your hands. After using such cleaners, thoroughly rinse the oven with a solution of 1 tablespoon vinegar to 1 cup of water.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE Aluminum Foil in Oven ! WA RNING ! NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack with materials such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may also trap heat, causing a fire hazard. Aluminium foil when used improperly is a cause of many range fires. Make certain that vents or air openings aren’t covered by the foil.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE (continued) Repair Parts When repair parts are needed, contact the dealer from whom the range was purchased. In case your range was purchased from a source other than an appliance dealer, you may prefer to contact the manufacturer at the address shown in this manual. Moisture During the initial heat-up of your range, the heat mixing with the cooler air in the oven cavity may produce fogging of the door glass or a collection of water on the door.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE (continued) CORRECT REPLACEMENT OF THE BURNERS It is very important to check that the burner flame spreader “F” and the cap “C” have been correctly positioned. Failure to do so can cause serious problems.In appliances with electric ignition, check that the electrode “S” is always clean to ensure troublefree sparking. C F The ignition plug must be cleaned very carefully. OVEN RACK INSTALLATION AND REMOVAL • The oven racks are provided with a safety catch to prevent accidental removal.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE (continued) REMOVING THE OVEN DOOR FOR CLEANING To facilitate oven cleaning, it is possible to remove the door. Please follow the instructions carefully: The oven door can easily be removed as follows: • Open the door to fully. • Lift the left and right hooks on the hinge figure (A,B). • Hold the door as shown in figure (C). • Gently close the door and lift the door with two hands when the hooks touch the door. • Set the door on a soft flat surface.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE (continued) REPLACING THE OVEN LIGHT • Let the oven cavity and broil burner cool down. • Switch off the electric supply. • Remove the protective cover. • Unscrew and replace the bulb with a new one suitable for high temperature (200°~ 500°F) having the same specifications: 120V 60Hz, 15W, E14. • Replace the protective cover. NOTE: Oven bulb replacement is not covered by your guarantee. LEVELING THE RANGE The range must be level to obtain proper operating.
TROUBLESHOOTING PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE POSSIBLE FIX Surface control has not been completely turned to the ON position. Push in and turn control to the ON position until burner ignites, then turn control to desired flame setting. Use a small gauge wire or needle to open ports. Verify that the burners are positioned properly on the orifice hoods and the burners are sitting flat on the burner support with tabs engaged in slots. See range conversion section of installation manual. Light burners manually.
TROUBLESHOOTING (continued) PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE Oven temperature is inaccurate. Oven capillary bulb not positioned properly. Verify that capillary bulb is snapped in clips straight and not touching sides or coated with oven cleaner or food. Temperature control not set properly. Make sure the temperature control knob is set at the desired temperature. Improper use of foil. Smoke/odor on initial oven operation Range is not level Vent blocked. Range not set for appropriate gas input.
