Type of Gas
Natural Gas:

This cooktop is design-certified by CSA International for

use with Natural gas or, after proper conversion, for use with LP gas.

This cooktop is factory set for use with Natural gas. If converting to LP
gas, see the “LP Gas Conversion” instructions provided in the package
containing literature. The model/serial rating plate located on the
underside of the cooktop base 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

No attempt shall be made to convert the cooktop from the gas specified
on the model/serial rating plate for use with a different gas without
consulting the serving gas supplier. See the Gas Conversion instructions
provided in the package containing literature.

Gas Supply Line

Provide a gas supply line of

³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) rigid pipe to the cooktop

location. A smaller size pipe on longer runs may result in insufficient
gas supply. Pipe-joint compounds that resist the action of LP gas must
be used. Do not use TEFLON


tape. With LP gas, piping or tubing size

should be

¹⁄₂" minimum. Usually, LP gas suppliers determine the size

and materials used in the system.

Flexible metal appliance connector:

If local codes permit, use a

¹⁄₂" or ³⁄₄" I.D. flexible stainless steel tubing

gas connector, designed
by CSA to connect the
cooktop to the rigid gas
supply line.


¹⁄₂" male pipe thread is needed for connection to the female pipe

threads of the inlet to the cooktop pressure regulator.

Do not kink or damage the flexible metal tubing when moving the

Rigid pipe connection:

The rigid pipe connection requires a combination of pipe fittings to obtain
an in-line connection to the cooktop.
The rigid pipe must be level with the
cooktop connection. All strains must
be removed from the supply and fuel
lines so cooktop will be level and in

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 cooktop
opening, such as an adjacent cabinet. It must be accessible without
removing the cooktop, and 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 cooktop.

It is the installer’s responsibility to comply with installation clearances
specified on the model/serial rating plate. The model/serial rating plate is
located on the underside of the cooktop base.

To eliminate the risk of burns or fire by reaching over heated surface
units, cabinet storage space located above the surface units should be
avoided. If cabinet storage is to be provided, the risk can be reduced by
installing a range hood that projects horizontally a minimum of 5"
(12.7 cm) beyond the bottom of the cabinets.

The cooktop must be a specified cooktop that is approved to be installed
either alone or over an undercounter built-in oven. Check the cooktop
base approved installation label for your cooktop model number and
approved combinations of cooktops and ovens that can be installed. If
you do not find this label, your cooktop may not be approved for use
over an undercounter built-in oven. Contact your dealer to confirm that
your cooktop is approved.

Ovens approved for this type of installation will have an approval label
located on the top of the oven. If you do not find this label, contact your
dealer to confirm that your oven is approved. Refer to oven
manufacturer’s Installation Instructions for approval for built-in
undercounter use and proper cutout dimensions.

The cooktop should be installed in a location away from strong draft
areas, such as windows, doors and strong heating vents or fans.
