Whirlpool WGG555S0BS User Manual
30" (76.2 cm) Freestanding Gas Range
PRODUCT MODEL NUMBERS
Gas supply line:
Provide a gas supply line of
³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) rigid pipe to the range
location. A smaller size pipe on longer runs may result in
insufficient gas supply. With LP gas, piping or tubing size can
¹⁄₂" (1.3 cm) minimum. Usually, LP gas suppliers determine
the size and materials used in the system.
Pipe-joint compounds that resist the action of LP gas
must be used. Do not use TEFLON
Flexible metal appliance connector:
If local codes permit, a new CSA design-certified, 4 to 5 ft
(122 to 152.4 cm) long,
¹⁄₂" (1.3 cm) or ³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) I.D.,
flexible metal appliance connector may be used for connecting
range to the gas supply line.
¹⁄₂" (1.3 cm) male pipe thread is needed for connection to
the female pipe threads of the inlet to the appliance pressure
Do not kink or damage the flexible metal tubing when moving
Must include a shutoff valve:
The supply line must be equipped with a manual shutoff valve.
This valve should be located in the same room but external to
the range opening, such as an adjacent cabinet. It should be in a
location that allows ease of opening and closing. Do not block
access to shutoff valve. The valve is for turning on or shutting
off gas to the range.
Type of Gas
This range is design-certified by CSA International for use with
Natural gas or, after proper conversion, for use with LP gas.
This range is factory set for use with Natural gas. See “Gas
Conversions” section. The model/serial rating plate located
behind the control panel has information on the types of gas
that can be used. If the types of gas listed do not include the
type of gas available, check with the local gas supplier.
LP gas conversion:
Conversion must be done by a qualified service technician.
No attempt shall be made to convert the appliance from the gas
specified on the model/serial rating plate for use with a different
gas without consulting the serving gas supplier. See “Gas

The range must be electrically grounded in accordance with local
codes and ordinances, or in the absence of local codes, with the National Electrical
Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 or Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is recommended that a
qualified electrical installer determine that the ground path is adequate.
A 120 volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15-amp fused, electrical circuit is required. A time-
delay fuse or circuit breaker is also recommended. It is recommended that a
separate circuit serving only this range be provided.
Electronic ignition systems operate within wide voltage limits, but proper
grounding and polarity are necessary. Check that the outlet provides 120-volt
power and is correctly grounded.
