Gas Supply Requirements
Recommended gas pipe outlet locations are shown in
Fig.7-16, Fig.7-17 and Fig.7-18.
Provide Adequate Gas Supply
Prior to installation, make sure that the local distribution
conditions (nature of the gas and gas pressure) and the
adjustment of the appliance are compatible.
The range is designed to operate at a manifold pressure of 4’’
of water column (1 kPa) on natural gas. A conversion kit for
LP gas (Propane) is supplied with the range. When converted
to LP gas, a pressure of 10’’ of water column (2.49 kPa) is
Make sure you are supplying your range with the correct type
If the range is to be used on LP gas, a qualified LP installer
must convert it. We recommend that the range be converted
before installation. This must be done before the range can
be used on LP gas.
For proper operation, the pressure of natural gas supplied to
the regulator must be between 4½’’ and 13’’ of water column
For LP gas, the pressure supplied must be between 10’’ and
13’’ of water column (2.49–3.24 kPa).
When checking for proper operation of the regulator, the
inlet pressure must be at least 1’’ (0.25 kPa) greater than the
operating (manifold) pressure as given above.
The pressure regulator located at the inlet of the range
manifold must remain in the supply line regardless of
whether natural or LP gas is being used.
A flexible metal appliance connector used to connect the
range to the gas supply line should have an I.D. of ½’’ and be
5 feet in length for ease of installation.
